Another smoking ban controversy in West Michigan!

Mlive.com is reporting the owner of Belding’s last bar says he will be closing - why - because of the smoking ban the owner says.

The Driftway Inn  in downtown Belding for the last 39 years will close this weekend

“For some reason, the government is bound and determined to run bars out of business,” said the owner “They talk about trying to draw jobs into this state, but they are just putting more people in the unemployment line.”

What do you think? Is the smoking ban to blame or not? Just the economy? The Place itself?
