Fireworks vendors should be considerate of neighbors

The fireworks stands are at it again. Days ahead of the Fourth of July and for days after, the fireworks sellers and buyers have abused the nearby residents. Both sellers at the corner of 175th and Calumet Avenue were setting off very loud fireworks past midnight.

Does a business license circumvent noise ordinances? It is apparent common sense doesn't exist with these people. Holidays don't give anyone the right to ignore the community.

Infuriated resident.
