Article in today's Chicago Tribune -- 3 towns prodded to bar smoking: Lake County hosts forum to push ban, by Dave Wischnowsky:
With eight Lake County communities
already banning smoking in public places,
health officials worked Tuesday to persuade North Chicago, Highwood and Green
Oaks to consider similar ordinances over bacon and eggs in Vernon Hills.
The event, co-hosted by the Lake County Health Department and the American
Heart Association, was the first of three breakfast forums scheduled as part of a
goal to make Lake County smoke-free by the end of 2007.
