The rise in addiction is not the only concern we are dealing with in Adair County.

There are many issues that go along with drug use and the pictures accompanying this article is one issue which is becoming frequent.


This syringe was recovered by me this morning after a friend called me to tell me he saw it while on his morning run and was concerned somebody could step on it.
