To Whom It May Con- cern: The prospect of pill mills coming into Bath Coun- ty is absolutely insane. Isn't there enough of our young, middle-aged, and some seniors dying in our county now without this even being thought about? What in God's name is happening to country, state, and people? Must we stand by and watch people we care about and love destroy themselves through drugs or do something about it? Peo- ple, people, people of Bath County stand up for your rights and take the appro- priate action and remove the drugs from this coun- ty and help others do the same, by signing petitions and helping law enforce- ment. Call the Governor's hotline, 1-502-564-2611 and express your opin- ion. If you do not act on this now, you will definite- ly suffer in the long. Let's come together and act re- sponsibly. James W.
