Make FS smoke-free

    I have the right to drive on our city's streets. When I drive on one of our major streets, I will yield my right at a stop light to allow someone else to exercise their right to also drive on our streets. This is common courtesy and the law.
    On Jan. 25, this city will go to the polls and decide whether or not we want smoke-free public places. Let's please make them smoke-free.
    As a person susceptible to respiratory problems, I have been avoiding some very good restaurants. I would like to enjoy them and will be able to if the smokers of this city will exercise some common courtesy and yield their rights for a short time so that others may also enjoy these places.
    Let's make it the law.
