Regional Smoking Ban
Now Campbell County is getting into the game. This is what I have been saying all along. I am on the fence about the smoking ban in general, BUT, if you are going to ban smoking at bars/restaurants then it needs to be done on both sides of the river. And the government, regulatory, health, and civic action groups are hopefully talking to each other about how to do it simultaneously. I don't fear a movement to the suburbs for bars/patrons. Those that are going downtown for bars, are not going to be content heading to Mason for a beer, but a bigger worry is crossing the river to an already lively entertainment district.
