  • Native winter burials to continue

    Fairbanks, Alaska (AP)

    A Native group will be allowed to conduct winter burials at a Fairbanks cemetery.

    An official with the Fairbanks Native Association recently voiced concerns that winter burials would no longer be possible without access to Birch Hill Cemetery.

    But cemetery owner Tim Wisniewski says if the group wants access to the cemetery through the main gates, all they have to do is ask.
