To the Editor:

As soon as a 13 year old grandson expressed how awful it was walking thru the smoky casino, why would anyone insist on eating there?  This town does not require anyone to be exposed to second hand smoke when patronizing a restaurant.  No restaurants allow smoking on the premise and there are several in town that do not require ingress through a smokey casino. The real issue is smoker vs non-smoker.  No one makes anyone go into the smokey casino, and I guess if it ever becomes a financial bonanza for casinos to ban smoking it will be done.

Okay, we ban smoking, what’s next?  Maybe someone will ban alcohol because it is not real good for anyone either.  If the issue of second hand smoke is important to anyone they should refrain from going into the establishment.  It would probably be better for their wallet.
