The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Federal Politics -

A NINE-YEAR-OLD boy has con­vinced the lead­ers of a small Colorado town to over­turn a nearly cen­tury-old ban on snow­ball fights.

Dane Best (pic­tured), who lives in the of­ten snow-swept town of Sev­er­ance, pre­sented his ar­gu­ments at a town board meet­ing, and mem­bers voted unan­i­mously to lift the ban.

Ad­min­is­tra­tors said the rule was part of an or­di­nance that made it il­le­gal to throw mis­siles at peo­ple, an­i­mals, build­ings, trees, any other pub­lic or pri­vate prop­erty or ve­hi­cles. Dane said: “I think it’s an out­dated law.”
