Northern Utah--Thanks to big government, the days of “chestnuts roasting on an open fire” will soon be a thing of the past or levied a large fine.  The Division of Air Quality in Utah is seeking to strip away the freedom of choice in Utah.  Utah is about to institute a mandatory no burn action when they feel the pollution is building up to unhealthy levels during winter inversions. The regulations would cover nearly every county in Northern Utah including Box Elder County and Weber County.

Air Quality VS Quality of Life

Recent campaign propaganda by UCAIR is attacking the use of wood burning fireplaces and stoves. They claim that 1 fireplace will produce as much pollution as 90 sport utility vehicles.  I think that all of us are interested in clean air, blue sky and the ability to breathe easily, but somehow the data and comparisons that are presented seem emotionally charged and perhaps flawed. I know that if given the choice I would much rather stand right next to a campfire (burning wood) than next to the tail pipes of 90 SUV’s - especially on a cold day.


Box Elder County--For an abuse child, it can be difficult to find things to be happy about. Their world can be a scary, sad place and it is hard to restore the child’s sense of safety and well-being. Thanks to Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A) some abused children can return to their lives feeling safer and happier.
