Listen: Kirk, Dane And Colorado 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 just didn't noisy legal 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 today to hopefully change the law snowballs is. The laws in many years. He's wanted to have snowball fights breaking the law. Ks wanted to have a 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've had kids write letters. We've had kids like call us. But to do it you have to come to a 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 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 he kept it in the freezer, and my little brother got to throw one to and. Yeah. Well, there are still some concerns about safety. Recur says the laws safety clauses are intact. If you put a rock and sell ball. You're still throwing a rock and that is still illegal. While throwing snowballs is now legal in severance. Best a 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 best. It doesn't matter. How old you are? You can have a voice in your town."
