Sounds like a good start to me

SCVTV Channel 20 televises City Council meetings. I caught the first meeting with our newly re-elected incumbents.

A brave mom and family lost their young adult son to OxyContin and heroin overdose after a four-year battle. Worse yet, more young ones have died of overdoses. She recounted the numerous attempts by her and others also victimized by one drug dealer to get the police to do something, all to no avail.

The one and only person to hear her words was Councilman Bob Kellar. She asked so clearly, why didn't the police do anything?

Right then and right there, Kellar asked the new sheriff's captain to look into their policies and get back to the council to see why, as well as how, together they can stop this scourge on our community.

No, I don't think it takes a "village to raise a child." I think it takes parents who ask for help as they see fit.

She wanted the drug dealer arrested. That sounds like a darn good start to me.
