Some will say the Woodriver smokers, Andrew and Gloria Straughn, will see this post and stop burning.
We say, go right ahead and stop. That’s exactly what they should have done over 4 years ago.
The Straughn’s got the order. It’s public record. Why shouldn’t you see it too?
Here’s what we LOVE [Hey, it’s Valentine’s day!] about the court order.
“…(T)he Court finding good cause for such motion, and further finding that the operation of the defendants’ two outdoor wood boilers has proven to be a public nuisance;” Thank you, Judge! That’s a first for Fairbanks!
“IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the defendants may not operate either of the two outdoor wood boilers…unless they obtain an order from this Court allowing such operation.”
“This order takes effect immediately.” (Feb 4, 2013)
Signed by “Superior Court Judge Robert B. Downes”
Did the Straughns violate the order? Yes they did. Tomorrow we’ll publish a new set of photos. The evidence is in. Does the State have the juice to go after the Straughns for contempt of court? They better.
