Smoking in Restaurants
By Randy M. Lake

I have two or three "I wonder if?" questions. First, am I the only person in town that would prefer to smell food instead of cigarette smoke, when entering a restaurant?

Is there a restaurant owner in Ketchikan, with the pride in his trade and the strength, to ban smoking in his eatery?

Are there any restaurant employees sick literally or figuratively, of having to inhale second hand smoke?

It is becoming rare to find a place in the United States that would allow smoking, not only in restaurants but in any public building.
