Several Counties Consider Smoking Bans

Three northern Kentucky counties are considering smoking bans that would prohibit lighting up in public.

Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties are weighing whether or not to snuff out smoking in restaurants, bars, workplaces and other public areas.

Clark County is also moving forward with a ban. The county's Board of Health approved the legislation last week.

Smoking is banned in a total of 18 communities in Kentucky.

    Look at a particularly disturbing sentence in the next to the last paragraph...."The county's Board of Health approved the legislation last week"...ONCE AGAIN OFFICIALS NOT ELECTED by the people imposing their will upon us all.....whats happening here? Are we in a place where appointees decide for us rather than the ELECTED officials doing their jobs and allowing the public a voice in such an important issue?
