Pill drop's a hit

Friday, August 27, 2010
Operation Pill Drop partners Sheriff Bob Grudek and Michele Gann, with St. John's Hospital-Berryville, were looking over some of the prescription drugs that were turned in at their latest pill drop stop -- the Berryville Community Center on Wednesday. The two say the effort has been extremely successful, not only for collecting unused medications for proper disposal, but for educating the public on disposal risks. Their next, and likely final stop, will be Wednesday, Sept. 8, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., at the fire station next to McDonald's in Eureka Springs. Permanent drop boxes are planned at the sheriff's office and at the hospital, they say. Anna Mathews / Carroll County News
