  • Franklin shares info on bath salts, synthetic marijuana

    This month, I’d like to give readers a bit more insight on two topics you may know little about: bath salts and synthetic marijuana. These were two items among synthetic drugs that we are to report on through The Office of National Drug Control Policy, in order to keep our coalition updated. You may have heard of these drugs and did not realize they are deadly. With hard drugs running rampant in the streets, it is easy to put these in the back of your minds but they are in fact deadly.

  • Be a responsible dog owner

    Some of you may know and many of you do not know that we have a fifth member of our family named Ben. Ben stands about a foot tall, likes to eat food that our kids drop for him, is a best friend to my son, and is a protector to my daughter. Ben is our 10-year-old Boston Terrier. He truly is a member of the family. Many of you reading this have a “Ben” too. If you don’t have a “Ben” then I would encourage you to get one—especially if you have children.
