Letter to the Editor: Please donand#8217;t stereotype all smokers

This letter is in response to Aaron Lade’s letter about smokers butts on the beach. Yes I do agree about that and general pollution of our lake. But I do not agree that all people smoke because they are stress, depressed or unhappy.

If you take a better look at when the most butts or trash are all over our town, it is in peak tourist season. Maybe we should focus more on the tourist who come up to our lake with no regard.

I smoke and am very active. Whenever you see me snowboarding, playing disc and ball golf, jumping off of rocks, etc., you will find my butts in my pockets or backpack.

So don’t be so biased against all people who smoke, especially the ones who live in your town. There are a lot of us who respect the lake and other people.
