A St. George radio station is offering a novel way to counteract the state's fireworks restrictions: Offering residents movie tickets in exchange for fireworks.
KZHK, 95.9 FM -- a k a "The Hawk" -- is offering 50 cents in "movie bucks" for every dollar's worth of fireworks brougnt into the station's offices before 6 p.m. today, according to St. George News. (KZHK's studio is at 204 N. Playa Della Rosita, Washington City.)
Several cities in Washington County have restricted fireworks, or banned them altogether, because of wildfire dangers.
Others in Utah are taking more direct action: An online petition asking Gov. Gary Herbert to ban all fireworks in Utah this summer has received more than 5,600 signatures since it was posted last week.
