Burning Still Restricted

The warm, spring weather has enabled residents around the county to get out early this year to clean up their fields and conduct some agricultural burning.  However, those in town, says Fire Marshal Kathy Clay, may not do open burning for another week.   Clay again reminds property owners they need to call in their plans to burn so that the fire department does not end up making an unneeded response. Clay also says make sure the fire is dead out when the burn project is over.  Clay says there have been some instances of such fires rekindling and necessitating a response.  She adds that the fine fuels including grasses and shrubs will be drying out quickly this spring even with the moisture we have been having, and they will easily ignite even at this time of the year.

  • Test new gear before you buy it - October 29, 2014
    Don’t just buy your gear because it looks good. Buy it only if it fits you properly. Hiking boots that don’t fit you well will give you blisters, and you’ll spend your entire trip sitting around in camp, dreading the walk back out.
