The Tacoma Weekly is reporting that Tacoma police are wanting added authority to remove troublemakers from the Freedom Fair celebration. Let's hope Ruston's police have the same authority so they can address any spill over. It's a great celebration and a small minority should not be able to drag down the fun for the rest of us.
Just a reminder, Ruston is one of the few places in the south sound that allow personal fireworks. The permit available to residents only and you must get it 30 days in advance. If you want to enjoy your own fireworks, you'll have to visit town hall (5117 N. Winnifred) by next Wednesday, June 4th to get your permit.
