To the editor:
On Dec. 10, 2002,
high school students from the REALITY Illinois Teen Coalition of
Logan County participated in a project, Operation Storefront, where
we visited 18 tobacco vendors in Lincoln to learn about tobacco
advertising in Logan County. We would like to thank the stores that
participated and helped us learn about tobacco advertising. Thanks
to Thornton's, Wal-Mart, Eagle Discount Foods, Ayerco, Clark,
Kroger, Discount Tobacco, Qik-n-EZ, Walgreens, Fifth Street Food
Market, Quick Way Foods, Green Oil, Apollo Mart, IGA, CVS, Bruns
Service Center and Casey's General Store.
In the three years that this
project has been done, we have seen less and less tobacco advertising in the
Logan County businesses. We see more and more anti-tobacco warnings in the
stores. Thank you. We are pleased to see that most stores have cigarettes behind
the counter. But how about putting chewing tobacco and cigars behind the counter
[to top of second column in this letter]
We appreciate all the businesses
that are trying to prevent youth access to tobacco. Tobacco companies are
spending $190 every second to get youth to smoke! Logan County businesses care
