As long as U.S. Forest Service, BLM and Interior Dept things will be screwed up.

Their philosophy - let it burn and pull back.

I know of a number of ways to help reduce fire danger everywhere. Ban all fireworks ,except at organized events. Have all state and federal parks remove charcoal grills. A fire burn all the time anywhere. Smoke your filthy nasty cigarettes while driving or outside? Get a big fine.

I'm as against fires as anyone, but I'm tired of you people going after my personal freedoms. Ciggarettes are meant to be enjoyed outside. Or would you rather I smoke in the car with my ten month old grand son?

Your personal freedom is promptly yanked out like an ole dirty rug. NO! it is NOT okay to smoke in your car, as it will distract you from your responsibility to drive safely. I'll go after your bad habits, as they affect myself and others. Go back 40 years and see the progress WE are making.

Driving back from Dallas yesterday along I40 between Amarillo & Abq, I was struck by how many OK license plates I saw going west. Are the inmates/ingrates leaving the sinking ship? Since I was doing the speed limit (75) they were all speeding. TX St Patrol was having a ball!!

I think you are referring to spring break?? Elida has a famous speed trap there. I always drive 5 mph under, like I always do, everywhere, even on everyone of your two lane rough roads. You have a very friendly locals..... they love to wave to me as they barrel past me.:) When they can :)

I was surprised to find that we actually get a lot of Spring Breakers here.

I am really concerned about this year's fire season. The drought is as bad or worse than it has been and many of our trees are frail and diseased --making them extremely vulnerable. There are certain parties in town, aided by agencies that seem to look the other way when it comes to them, who believe they are entitled to skirt the law when it comes to illegal burns, such as burning trash and pine needles, and even when it comes to fireworks. Well, we all know how that went down, don't we? Additionally, it seems that some merchants are given special waivers and crazy deadline extensions to make their businesses fire safe. All of this and more make me leery. I have packed boxes by the door in case I need to flee. I encourage everyone to get ready. Have a plan.

I think that there should be an "open season" for the imbecile who keeps lighting fires along Tramway and in the foothills. The same thing happened last year and as far as I know they have not apprehended the idiot, but if they do they should throw the book at him/her.

How about adding the idiot that was shooting off fireworks in Eagle Creek 3 weeks ago, to the "open season" list? Of course, the idiot wasn't doing anything "illegal" because free wheeling Lincoln County has no fireworks ban in place. So much for the health,safety and welfare of the residents in the interest of making sure everyone can do whatever they please in Lincoln County.
