On Monday, G.C. Hartman Elementary was the setting for a Media Day Rountable Discussion of key topics that will be presented at the Drug Awareness Town Hall Meeting to be held on Wednesday, March 26th. The Media Day discussion was moderated by State Representative Kurt Masser and was attended by representatives from law enforcement, the judicial system, and various county-level offices. All officials were in agreement that abuse of prescription medicine is becoming an epidemic as is heroin use. Parents are urged to attend the Town Hall Meeting which will be held at SCA's High School Auditorium. Doors open at 5:30 PM with the program beginning at 6:00 PM. Besides gaining an awareness of the scope of the problem, attendees will be armed with information about ways to protect loved ones from the scourge of drug abuse and resources available to those who have fallen victim to it.

"The perception [used to be] that heroin was mostly an urban problem. But now there are no borders, there are no demographic or geographic areas ... that are immune from heroin."
