9-Year-Old Boy Gets Colorado Town to Remove Ban on Snowball Fights
Dane Best, 9, from Severance, Colorado just wants to do what other kids do in winter, have a snowball fight. Dane went to a town meeting on Monday to voice his opposition to a law banning snowball fights. He was able to get the members to unanimously overturn it. "I think it's an outdated law," he said. "I want to be able to throw a snowball without getting in trouble." The rule was part of an ordinance that referred to shooting or throwing stones or missiles. "All of the kids always get blown away that it's illegal to have snowball fights in Severance," said the assistant town administrator Kyle Rietkirk. "So, what ends up happening is (town leaders) always encourage the kids with, 'You have the power you can change the law.' No one has." Severance also has an ordinance that says only cats and dogs can be deemed pets. Dane illegally owns a guinea pig.
