Why would you pay to watch something that you can sit on your front porch and watch it for free.

I agree! Plus a little distance from fireworks provides better viewing.

Hey Jim,

Why don't you just go to another town to watch the fireworks, because it's the gate fees that pay for the fireworks in Weston. If everyone felt the way you do Weston won't have fireworks. You are just another person that wants everything for nothing. You should thank those that do pay to get into the field and you should thank the firefighters that give up their holiday so you can sit on your porch and give nothing back to the community.

Yea Jim, you probably sit on your ass on the porch all day while working folks like Mike and myself support your ass. I don't know what you do or did for a living, but if you still work go to work tomorrow and tell your company you want to work for free. See how long that lasts. Thank goodness the fine people of this area help support events such as this. I doubt that you set off your own fireworks, as it is my guess you don't even know which end the fuse is on. Peace out.

So just because people don't want to pay to go watch fireworks is no excuse for personal attacks and cheap shots so why don't you and Mikey go play on the interstate.

First off, before you jump to conclusions Jim and fall off the porch, I have no affiliation with the fire department what so ever. I just think folks like you who complain and think there is no cost involved in anything, need to get out more. Again I don't know what you do for a living, but I bet you don't work for nothing and if you happen to have your own business, I bet you charge for your services. I applaud Mr. Young and his years of commitment to this city, too bad it ended the way it did. Go ahead insult him if you must, but if he does happen to play on the interstate and it is your ass he is saving, he will do it with dignity. Again peace out.

To get all worked up because someone posted about not wanting to pay to watch the fireworks is sign of a real twit with nothing better to do besides you don't even know how they charge.

Hey Weston,

If you want to see some really good fire works, just let 'em burn the whole town down.

That would be doing everyone a great favor and nothing worth anything or nobody worth anything would be lost!

Here is the thing if you set off fireworks where ppl can see them from there porch then 9 times out of 10 that is exactly what they will do. If you dont want them to watch from there porch then do it somewhere where they cant see from there porch. As for attacking jim because he does so is fckn retarded. I dont know one single person that wont take something for free includeing yourselves. So what they have to work on the holiday so do i big fckn deal. If you dont want to then dont work gor the fd you know what your sighning up for when you do it.

Um read the topic roger brown your a fckn moron. I always knew there wasnt no smart member of the lost creek community. I was talkin about what the topic was originaly about. Until the idiots like yourself went in a whole different direction with it. So if you can read which im sure not above fckn 3rd grade level. Then go back and read what this whole topic is about. Then well try this again when you fckn understand a little better. If that dont help let me know i will explain it in a way that you cam understand:).
