said Diane Ringer, owner of the St. Stephen's.

"We are working on our waiver is long, tedious and redundant," said Ringer.
Some businesses are allowing smoking even though the ban is in effect.

Brocton/Portland area native and resident Diane Ringer asked this as she was gathered with fellow members of the Brocton/Portland Community Festival Committee at the John W. Dill American Legion Post planning final details of the up-and-coming 6th Annual Brocton/Portland Community Festival.

This is another reason why she, and the rest of the committee, urge young and old, residents and relocated natives to take part in the community spirit that makes up the festival each year.
Ringer spent her girlhood in the area, growing up with her brothers Brian and Steve in the once-vibrant business sector of Brocton and Portland.
"It used to be that everything we needed was right in town, and that's what we did," Ringer said. "We walked to town to buy what we needed and visited with people while we were there."
As a former owner of the St. Stephen's Hotel, Ringer joined the cooperative mindset with other native business owners, Ed Wood (Wood's Repair) and Al Seavy (Seavy Automotive and Seavy Auto Sales), to try to bring back the festival and make it centered on families at the heart of the Village of Brocton.
"If we were in a large city or metropolitan area, we probably wouldn't have that cooperation at all," noted Ringer.
You can make your own destiny, even here," said Ringer.
Ringer added to that.
"We need to start beautifying our town and village. Let people be part of the solution that's where your pride in your community comes from," she stated.
"This is not a private checking account for us," added Ringer.
Brocton-Portland Festival Committee members include Stephanie Halpainy, Ed Wood, and Al Seavy in the front row and Jose Morales and Diane Ringer in the gazebo.

Diane Ringer, owner of St. Stephens Restaurant in Brocton, said compliance will be easy on the weekdays compliance, but it would probably be an issue on weekends for smokers who enjoy heading out to have a few drinks.

"What will be next?"she said.
According to Ringer, her business has already made a number of renovations in their bar, including removing a partition."If we had left the wall there we would have had a smoke room.If we have to comply, the law is the law.We have smoke, eaters, fans and ventilation," said Ringer.

Diane Ringer, owner of the St. Stephen's in Brocton, said she is having to cut staff hours, close early several days a week and has noted a significant decrease in revenue.

Ringer said that on top of the repercussions, the state has also increased the cost of the two-year liquor license to $1,900 which can no longer be made in installments.Cash up front is required.
"We may have to consider closing the doors due to the smoking ban, heating costs and increased utility expenses, decreased revenue and new problems that have resulted from the smoking ban, like community complaints about patrons who are outside," said Ringer.
One option for her includes closing the dining room in an attempt to conserve on utility and operational expenses.
