The world is applauding the efforts of a 9-year-old boy in Severance, CO for taking legal action to get rid of a century-old ban on snowball fights.
Dane Best was on a field trip to town hall when he discovered snowball fights were illegal in his town. An ordinance that’s been on the books nearly a century actually put snowballs in the same category as missiles! That’s pretty ridiculous, don’t you think? Dane certainly thought so. That’s why he took it upon himself to challenge City Hall on it.
Dane prepared a powerpoint to present to the council explaining why lifting the ban could be good for their community. Luckily for Dane and every other resident of Severance, there was a unanimous decision to get rid of the outdated rule. The mayor even let Dane throw the first legal snowball in the town!
