  The September Columbus Health Department Newsletter (pages 4 to 6) announced a competion for 6th graders to create "Blow Bubbles Not Smoke" posters for this weeks "Great American Smoke Out.'   Sponsored by the Franklin County Tobacco Free Collaborative.  The winner of the competition was Laura Erckert of Genoa Middle School.  Laura's winning poster along with the rest of 6th graders posters will be displayed Thursday November 17,  2005 at the North Market.     


"If you smoke, the American Cancer Society can help you quit. And people who plan a quit attempt in advance double their odds of succeeding. Why not give up cigarettes for the daymaybe foreveron Thursday, November 17, during the 29th annual Great American Smokeout? "


Ohio Tobacco Quit Line: 800-934-4840  "Smokers who complete the Quit Line program are FIVE TIMES more successful than those who quit cold turkey."  


The most recent smoking ban votes in Central Ohio (just last Tuesday!) were for Gahanna and Grandview Heights.  According to Smoke Free Ohio voters supported smoking bans in these two cities.  "On November 8, 2005, the citizens of Grandview Heights and Gahanna easily passed strong clean indoor air laws demonstrating that Ohio voters support everyone's right to breathe clean indoor air. "


Franklin County Board of Health


In addition to Grandview Heights and Gahanna smoking is banned in public buildings  in Worthington, Columbus, Westerville, Upper Arlington, Bexley, Granville, New Albany, Hilliard, Marble Cliff and other Central Ohio communities! 


The best place to light up for smokers that just can't kick the habit (or don't want to) seems to be in the bars and restaurants in townships.  


Would voters support a statewide ban ?  From  Smoke Free Ohio   "American Cancer Society Launches Campaign to Pass a Statewide Clean Indoor Air Law."


"If the Ohio General Assembly does not take action, or tries to amend the law, the American Cancer Society and its partners will collect another 100,000 signatures to put the ordinance before all Ohio voters in November 2006."


"The American Cancer Society announces the start of the SmokeFreeOhio.org campaign jointly with the American Heart Association, the American Lung Association, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the Association of Ohio Health Commissioners."
