Mark Elliott – program director of WIKY Radio here. Yesterday, a listener (Angie Walker Leslie) posted on the WIKY Facebook page about a news story. I won’t recap the story here, as it was tragic and very personal for Ms. Leslie. (Click here for a link to the story in the Local News section of this site.) However, in that post there were some claims about the news story that were not true. We debated removing the post but thought it best to reply in the comments, which we did.
There are plenty of people upset about the local fireworks bans this year due to the weather conditions. It’s perfectly understandable, too. Some folks just can’t celebrate Independence Day properly without cutting loose a few bottle rockets or Roman candles. But for me, it’s been a lifetime ban on fireworks so I’m not so upset. My cousin Mike, a number of years my senior, threw a firecracker into a ditch when he was a kid, a rock flew out and yes, he actually PUT HIS EYE OUT! He’s had a glass eye ever since.
