Health Report Released

The Lincoln Lancaster County Board of Health released it's annual report Tuesday. The report shows a very busy year for the public organization. Their biggest challenge was the Lincoln smoking ban. Businesses making more than 60 percent of their profits from food will be smoke free, most bars will not. The Health Department, defeated on a complete ban, begins enforcement this summer, with hopes of one day seeing a smoke free Lincoln. Also in the report, the Health Department believes Lincolnites will see a decreased threat of West Nile this summer because of their stepped up spraying efforts this year.
