The following letter is published in the 1-9-07 Tomahawk Leader:
To the Editor,
I am writing this letter about a very controversial subject. It is in regard to the smoking at Bingo at SARA Park. There should be no smoking at all in any public buildings. Shame on the leaders of our city for not passing and enforcing the no-smoking ordinance.
We all know the effects of secondhand smoke and it’s killing us all. Some say it will hurt the Harley weekend. I don’t think so. There are thousands of Harley people that would welcome clean air to breathe.
It would be such an easy thing to fix. Play five games of Bingo, take a five minute smoke break, five more games, five minute break, etc. No 15 minute intermission.
The food that is sold is right next to smoking section, so gets contaminated also.
I hope you will do the right thing and get it corrected before regular Bingo starts in May.
Thank you for printing this.
