Dr. Rick Miles makes compelling needle exhange argument

2017-05-02 - City Hall, 116 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, .
Dr. Rick Miles, the legendary house-call M.D., standing, presented statistics on the need for a syringe exchange program to the Columbia City Council last night, Monday, May 2, 2017. In a community primed to take action, presentation may have been only the decisive tipping point, but it worked. The Columbia City Council voted unanimously, on a motion by City Council Member Linda Waggener, and a second from Craig Dean, to approve Dr. Miles' request for approval for the Adair County Health Department to begin a needle exchange here. Adair Fiscal Court, from most reports, is poised to give its ok to the program. Listening, around the council table, are, clockwise, Council Members Pam Hoots and Craig Dean, City Clerk Rhonda Loy, Council Member Ron Rogers, presiding in the absence of Mayor Curtis Hardwick; City Attorney Marshall Loy, and Council Members Linda Waggener and Craig Lasley. Mayor Curtis sent a message of support for the vote. - EW
