Clarkson mulls smoking ban

A second Grayson County community has been asked to enact a city-wide public smoking ban.
Wayne Meriwether, CEO of Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center and chairman of the Population Health Committee, asked Clarkson commissioners earlier this month to consider a ban on lighting up in public spaces such as restaurants and convenience stores.
Secondhand smoke, Meriwether said, is a public health issue, with about 900 Kentuckians dying annually from exposure to it.
