Lyon County commissioners have a study meeting coming Wednesday.

Commissioners will discuss possible changes to the county's fireworks policy with Emporia City Manager Matt Zimmerman and Fire Chief Jack Taylor. Emporia looks likely to ban metal wire sparklers and has asked for county support on that change.........

Oh sure. Sparklers were one of only two fireworks legal in town for YEARS with no incident, they lift the ban, the next year ONE house catches fire from a sparkler and now they want to ban them. What is wrong with Emporia? I'm just going to start calling it Panic-town.
