Re: Take time to stop …

Yes, they should have been ticketed, but no officer was there to witness it and when it is a city employee there are different standards here in Tomahawk. It should be a higher standard so the general public has a good example to follow it however is not. I did not get the license number or truck nu...

Re: Sad that they have to do this...

Wind energy, now something I do know somethings about. I have had a electric generating wind mill for going on three years now. I have not found one dead bird below it, the tower we have does not make much noise, there are many different models, so I can only speak of the one we have, it is very qui...

Re: Time to put our foot down on secondhand smoke

I just want to be free from second hand smoke. Smokers, for the most part, do not give me that simple freedom. I do not care if they smoke, I just wish they would give me the freedom to breath without inhaling their leftovers. If all smokers were considerate of nonsmokers this would not be an issue ...

Re: Ups-n-Downs on Statewide Ban on Smoking

Implying_Ava, smokers take away my choice to breath air without smoke? How is that fair? You talk about choices, what about my choice to breath air without smoke, oh, that is right, I guess your right to share the smoke with me is more important then my choice not to smoke.

Re: Ups-n-Downs on Statewide Ban on Smoking

Yes, there are many things that we breath in that are not under our control that are bad for us, however, we have to start somwhere. Why are the choices of smokers so much more important them the choice I make not to share the smoke they (the smokers) CHOOSE to share with me. If smokers exhale in th...

Re: Ups-n-Downs on Statewide Ban on Smoking

It was on the channel 12 news last night that a restraunt in Rhinelander,that has allowed smoking for 25 years, has decided to go smoke free. They stated that it was not a statement against smoking; it was because they watched and counted the smokers verses non smokers that came in, they simply did ...

I am told as a NON smoker, except of course when someone else is smoking around me then I guess you could call me a forced second hand smoker, that if I do not like the smoke, just get another or different job, can we, the nonsmokers, not make the same request of businesses, if they can not make a l...

What about my right to breath air without cig. smoke? Are you implying that I do not have a right to go out for a meal or to work and breath clean air?

Abnerman, then you are the only one. I stand by my statement. What you do to yourself is totally up to you! It is the sharing that I have issues with.

P.S. I went back and counted, with this post I have 23 total. With five pages of posts I believe this is an important issue and it needs to be addressed. To the smokers out there reading this, be prepared, because us non smokers will not let this issue die and we will win! :)

Our family was signed up for the meeting, we recieved a call cancelling due to lack of interest. We were astonded.

Re: Proposed work place smoking ban in Rhinelander

Logic1, Thank you for understanding and listening. Maybe, smokers out there who ARE killing/murdering others with second hand smoke will think twice about lighting up around nonsmokers. PLEASE, do not make us nonsmokers breath YOUR poison!!!!

Re: Proposed work place smoking ban in Rhinelander

That is alright, there are too many bars anyway. Those people eho can not make it if there is a smokeing ban can just open a different business, just like a bartender can get a different job.
