WRANGELL- There's only three bars open year-round in Wrangell, and one of them has gone smoke-free.

 
Wrangell isn't the type of town where going smoke-free would be an obvious choice. When people walk into a bar, you'd see a cigarette in the hands of customers.
 
But Reme Privett is the owner of Rayme's. He says the bar went smoke-free as of New Year's Day.
 
He says he's just following the trend that is spreading statewide.
 
Privett says he does worry about losing old customers, but notes he's seen new faces in the bar since the ban went into effect.

I don't smoke but my question is this, will government stop spending the tax dollars they've been getting from smokers as the number of smokers decreases? Don't bank on it. Then it will be somebody else getting persecuted.
