This time next year, public places in Georgia could be smoke-free. Over the last few weeks, the smoking ban has been revised to exclude bars and restaurants that only serve people aged 18 and older. (So basically, bars.) But other businesses--like bowling alleys--would have to be non-smoking.

Life hasn't always been as sweet as a strike for bowler Danney Harris. "I had a heart transplant five years ago," he told us when we caught up with him at AMF Victory Lanes in Savannah today.

But he loves to bowl. It's like home. What he doesn't like is cigarette smoke. "A lot of times this place is filled with smoke. I won't eat here cause it's bad for me."
