Van Buren is not always on the “good” end of news; but, I would like to commend Van Buren for the “Smokeout” program as described in the BDN Sept. 19, “Sometime in November executives from the nation’s top seven tobacco companies will receive boxfuls of ashes … .”

What a wonderful idea! They also have a wonderful incentive to quit smoking. I would love to see their idea spread to all schools in the state of Maine.

Van Buren schools and the individuals involved should be commended and applauded for such a wonderful and positive activity against tobacco. Beautiful! J. Patrick Gallagher Presque Isle
