Emergency Ordinance Establishes Criminal Penalty for Open Burning During Suspended Periods An emergency ordinance was passed Tuesday establishing a misdemeanor criminal offense for open burning during suspended or prohibited periods. The emergency ordinance states that it is unlawful for any person to cause open burning on property of another person at a time when open burning is suspended or prohibited, or to permit any open burning on public land to continue in that person’s presence without calling emergency services, when open burning is suspended or prohibited.

A violation would result in a class A misdemeanor and is punishable up to one year in jail and a $10,000 fine. An additional ordinance was introduced to make this codified in Anchorage Municipal Code that is set for public hearing on June 7. ​

  1. How to stop schools from grooming kids? Easy. Get involved. PTA, school board, meet the teacher, all that stuff.

    Actually read your kids syllabus. Ask questions.

    But since that takes work and conservatives are allergic to work, it’s not gonna happen.

    • Seriously? That is quite a statement. Follow my conservative husband around for a day and then say he is allergic to work. As a contractor he rarely ever works less than 50 hours a week. And I homeschooled both of my kids k-12 and I can assure you that was vey hard work. Both are now college graduates and one in masters program.

      Albeit I do agree with the first part of your statement that parents need to be involved but from my experience there are a greater percentage of involved conservative parents involved with “boots on the ground” inside the schools. And that is from my years teaching in the classroom. Hence first hand observation.

      • I’ll break it down for you. The fact you’re pissed shows I hit a nerve.

        Alaska conservatives are deathly allergic to doing the work necessary to win politically. Shall I spell the word for you?
        You don’t vote, don’t get involved in your kids schools, don’t campaign for candidates, on and on and on. Deny all you want, facts – election results are quite clear.

        Conservatives whine. They don’t work. It’s quite a statement because it’s true.

        As to your antidotal personal claims, good for you if true.
        Me, back when I was working I’d have killed for a 50 hour week. And I still found time to be deeply involved in my kids schools.
        I wouldn’t have had the spare time to follow a contractor around.

  2. 19 kids were just shot up beyond recognition and you’re worried about a teacher being gay and mentioning it. Unbelievable priorities.

    • And the focus should be on what, the Weaponry used? If that’s your contention you would be even more wrong. Guns have been around- particularly high capacity guns, for nearly 100 years. If you are going to ignore mental health, and the mental health of the society, then you are missing the point. The lack of two parent homes, the breakdown of societal norms, the rejection of God, the administering of mind altering drugs to our youth, the babysitting of children via electronic devices and the commercial and pornographic industries that utilize those platforms—ALL of that plays a role in what we are seeing. The least significant part, is the actual weaponry.
