Listen: Kirk, Colorado And Dane discussed on All Things Considered
"For some throwing a snowball or two on a cold winter day is a yearly tradition but in severance, Colorado. We just didn't know as illegal to have a snowball fight that is nine year old Dane best. He took a school field trip to town hall and discovered there was a law against throwing snowballs a lot nearly one hundred years old. So he gathered his classmates to write letters about changing the law and this week he made his case in front of the town's board of trustees, and here's your day to hopefully change the law that French snowballs. I. Locked the laws created many years ago. His wanted to have snowball fights breaking the law. Kids wanted to have voice in her town. Kyle read Kirk is assistant to the town's administrator. He says best isn't the first to find this law unfair. We had kids write letters. We've had kids like call us. But the do it you have to come to public forum for it to be able to go through which had not happened until best gave a pretty convincing PowerPoint presentation. I was pretty excited. Everyone was clapping. I can't wait for to snow after the hearing best and his younger, brother. Dax got to throw the first two legal snowballs in town with snow that read Kirk had found the day before me kept it in the freezer and my little brother got to throw one two. And while there are still some concerns about safety record says the laws safety clauses are intact. If you've put a rock and a Sobol, you're still throwing a rock, and that is still illegal. While throwing snowballs is now legal in severance. Best want to turn his attention to working on some other quirky town laws like one that makes his pet Guinea pig. Snickers technically illegal apparently in severance, they have very strict definition of pets think dog and cat. I feel I can break in the log in that's nine year old Dane vest. It doesn't matter. How old you are? You can have a voice in your town voice that this week persuaded people to make it legal to throw snowballs severance Colorado once again.."
