A sage member of CHARR reflected that it is too bad the money
spent on the ordinance couldn't have been spent educating children.
I think the council did just that. They taught the children
the old adage, "Do as I say not as I do." What a shameful
I spend every day in the classrooms of Ketchikan teaching children
about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Following the city
council's decision, it feels like a fruitless effort when adults
contradict the message to children.
I am interested in a new ordinance. Any restaurant with a smoking
section must be adult only "to protect the children."
Freedom is granted to those who can self determine. Surely CHARR,
who is so concerned with children, would support such an ordinance
that protects innocent youths.
