To the Editor:
Quality of Life!?
What does that mean exactly?
Being retired and trying to enjoy our home, has become impossible!
Since the firework law has been passed, our fellow Salisbury “children,” have had nothing else better to do, than make noise. We hear M-80s, see Bottle Rockets, (in our yard) and hear cannons going off at all different hours.
Holiday or no holiday – no ones cares.
Have become trapped in our own home, with windows and doors closed.
Porch? Nope, can’t do it.
