Gusty wind, low relative humidities, warm temperatures, and dry fuels will all combine to produce high fire danger this afternoon and early evening. Red Flag Warning goes into effect at Noon and lasts until 8pm. Please, no outdoor burning or use of flammable materials. Head to the "Weather" Tab for more information on the forecast.
The sponsor of the plan was Representative Bill Crane who says
the requirement applies to students in every public elementary,
middle, junior and senior high school in the state.
There is no punishment for students and teachers who refuse to
comply and students can be exempted if a parent objects in writing.
Crane says the plan reinforces patriotic values -- which he
believes a majority of Americans share.
