Posted: Wednesday, Feb 13th, 2013

BUCKHANNON —Joyce Thacker-Harris, director of the Upshur County Family Resource Network and a member of the Upshur County Tobacco Prevention Coalition, spoke again to the Buckhannon City Council Thursday evening about moving forward in supporting a policy that would prohibit the use of tobacco in public parks and recreational facilities in the city.

To support her position, the Freeman-Sheldon Research Group Raze organization from Buckhannon-Upshur High School attended the council meeting and gave a presentation about the dangers of secondhand cigarette smoke.

Raze members that spoke to council were Seth Blake, Chris Eddy and Mikenze Poling.

Eddy retold a story about how he almost lost one of his best friends — Poling — because of secondhand smoke.
