It's not easy for a politician to defend smoking but Eagle River Assemblyman Bill Starr will be doing just that next week.
Starr has proposed a repeal of the smoking ban for private clubs. The Assembly will take comment Tuesday night. The change would affect 20 or so clubs -- mostly veterans and fraternal organizations -- but it is really aimed at just one: the Eagles Aerie 4174 in Peters Creek.
Not much I can say,but any politician who does this is OK in my book.
Wish they'd wise up and repeal all the bans on bars,clubs and pubs everywhere.
Sad no one sees the disparities in tax revenue and job rates and losses as being connected.
