The have similar names, but they couldn't be more different - and the smoke screen won't clear until November 7th, election day. But you can be forewarned. Causing the confusion is ballot issue 4 - a.k.a. Smoke Less Ohio, and ballot issue 5 - a.k.a. Smoke Free Ohio. The first bans smoking in bars; but not necessarily restaurants. The other would ban smoking in all public places, including bars and restaurants. Confused? We'll try sorting it out, plus discuss other ballot referenda, Tuesday morning at nine on The Sound of Ideas.




Smoking Issues - Jacob Evans, SmokeLess Ohio; Shelly Kiser, Smoke Free Ohio. School Money Issues - Joe Yachanin, columnist, Sun Newspapers and editor of the Garfield-Maple Sun; Stephanie Warsmith, education reporter Akron Beacon Journal.
