Dear Editor: Itís been six months since The Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act went into effect clearing the air in St. Charles Parish and all around the state.

I and many other men and women enjoy having smoke-free workplaces and restaurants. We were forced to breathe second-hand smoke for decades. But not anymore.

Please help us protect The Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act by telling your legislator to keep the current law on the books.

Robert J. Stimpson, Sr.,, Ama
