Smoking & Batting Cages
By Mark Smeltzer
July 11, 2007
It is sad to think that a person would stop coming to a restaurant
because they couldn't have a bite of fish & chips between
drags of their PallMall non-filter burning in an ashtray.
The practice of banning smoking in restaurants is a no brainer
given what we know about second hand smoke causing all kinds
of maladies. Give it a try. I haven't seen any cases of establishments
going belly up down here because of the public smoking ban. Decent
food, atmosphere, and service should be the draws of restaurants.
Mr. Gwynn. You are dead on for the need for batting cages not
only for entertainment purposes but to give kids a chance to
compete with the Juneaus of the state (not sure who who you are
referring to from Juneau and Sitka who are playing in the bigs
P.S. I always admired you as a player with the Padres. I'll bet
you had access to batting cages when you were growing up.
