Intro:

And lest you think that policing over 700 ballplayers a day in 15 different cities is an impossible challenge, Hardball Talk writes about a group that's planning to remain vigilant in pressuring Major League Baseball to enforce its own rules.

Yup, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids hopes that fans clicking turnstiles and watching from home will report any violations they see during the season. They've even created a handy-dandy online form that includes fields for the player's name, the game they attended or watch and even a place to submit pictures or screenshots of the tobacco use.

Breske was smoking ban foe 

Jump to full article: Wisconsin Radio Network, 2012-04-03
Author: Bob Hague

Intro:

“I was born and raised in a bar since I was that high, and I was tending bar since I was that high (holding hand four feet above the ground.) And there was only one light bulb in the bar. There was no fans, and everyone smoked. It was blue in there. Come on, I’m still alive, and I’m 69 years old. It’s sickening.”

Breske served in the state senate for 18 years, ending in 2008. That's when then governor Jim Doyle tapped him as state railroad commissioner. Speculation at the time was that Doyle made that move to get the former Tavern League president out of office so that the smoking ban could be passed. Doyle signed the ban into law the following year, and Breske stepped down as railroad commissioner in 2010. Breske was 73.

Jump to full article: The China Post (tw), 2012-04-03

Intro:

The Ministry of Finance (MOF) will demand that airport duty-free retailers ask for passports when they sell duty-free cigarettes to incoming visitors and home-bound citizens returning from foreign visits, MOF Minister Christina Liu (劉憶如) told legislators yesterday.

The rules are there, but not strictly observed, Liu said during a committee meeting at the Legislature, adding her ministry will more vigorously publicize the rules, conduct stricter inspections, and impose a heavy fine on contraveners.
