Nationwide, tobacco use kills more than 400,000 people and costs the nation nearly $100 billion in health care bills each year, and 23 percent of high school students smoke. In Georgia, tobacco use claims 10,300 lives and costs the state $2.25 billion in health care bills a year, and 17.2 percent of high school students smoke.

The Library Teen Advisory Council in Lakeland will participate in a cigarette butts clean up throughout the town of Lakeland. They will also demonstrate the number of people who die every day from tobacco-related diseases at the Miller-Lakeland Public Library. Time: 9 AM. Location: 124 S. Valdosta Road, Lakeland. Contact: Paula Bennett (229) 482-2904.
