Happy Fourth of July — now clean up after yourself

There were 20 fireworks-related calls to Kuna police over the past week, but no citations were issued, acording to police.
Idaho Code Title 39, Chapter 26, otherwise known as the Fireworks Act of 1997, allows only “nonaerial common fireworks,” which means “any fireworks such as ground spinners, fountains, sparklers, smoke devices or snakes designed to remain on or near the ground and not to travel outside a 15-foot diameter circle or emit sparks or other burning material which land outside a 20-foot diameter circle or above a height of 20 feet. Nonaerial common fireworks do not include firecrackers, jumping jacks or similar products.”
For those Kuna residents who chose to set off illegal fireworks Monday night, the least you can do is clean up after yourself.
