I disagree with Pam Helm, whose neighbor seems to regard neither friendly discussions nor “no burn” regulations as reasons not to burn. Helm wants more regulation. This doesn’t make sense.
What does make sense is the continuance of the no-burn days and the reporting of those who violate these regulations, followed by a fine or other citation. Those who repeatedly burn on no-burn days clearly ought to be dealt with. End of story.
We have the regulations, and they’re based on scientific analysis of air and wind patterns. Why do we need more?
