But hey... your money to spend as you like... as I'm sure you'll be quick to point out.
This is ture. I pay my taxes like everyone else and I have so much discretionary money and if I want to spend it on a firework show then great. Now if they want to have a donation booth for firefighters or people who lost their homes in the fires this summer I think that would be a great idea and I know I would donate.

This is true but that is all you can do on here. That being said I always put my money where my mouth is when it comes to areas that I believe in and this is one of them as the firefighters have done a great job and I feel very bad for my neighbors who have lost their houses.

Wow. My son and family just moved from COS to the Denver area two weeks ago. While they had not been anywhere near the fires I am still glad they are out of there due to the air quality and having a preschooler. I also have a guess their landlord may not have a problem renting their house now either.

Default Fireworks spark Glenwood Springs fire

Fireworks spark Glenwood Springs fire | VailDaily.com
Teenagers playing with fireworks reportedly set off a blaze that rapidly advanced up a hillside above the Roaring Fork River and threatened several Glenwood Park homes Wednesday evening.
Quick work by firefighters from Glenwood Springs and two neighboring fire districts brought the blaze under control, and disaster was averted as the fire was contained to about two acres of dry, shrubby hillside. The fire started near the Roaring Fork River, just south of the Three Mile Creek drainage and the new Atkinson Ditch bike path.
With the tinderbox-dry conditions, the fire quickly spread into the nearby pinion and juniper and raced up the steep hillside toward several homes on the ridge.
The juveniles could face felony fourth degree arson charges. Any use of fireworks is strictly prohibited under the current state fire ban and regional Stage 2 fire restrictions.
That includes even the kinds of fireworks that are normally legal to buy and use in Colorado, such as sparklers and fountain-type fireworks.
If someone actually starts a fire due to activities prohibited under the fire ban, the penalty moves into the felony category.
