Substance abuse is never easy to talk about, but it continues to be a serious problem throughout Ohio, including Upper Arlington. Open dialog about the problem —who it affects, what causes it, and how to confront it — is an important step toward understanding and prevention. Join Leadership UA on Thursday, April 23 at 7 p.m. in the UA Main Library's Friends Theater for a moderated panel of community leaders that will:

  • Detail the urgency of substance abuse in Upper Arlington
  • Explain how local resources are being organized to address the problem
  • Offer ideas for proper storage and disposal of prescription drugs, a leading gateway to illicit drugs addiction
  • Allow parents and others a chance to ask questions and share input.

Our distinguished panelists include Police Chief Brian Quinn, UA High School Principal Andrew Theado, Drug Free Action Alliance Executive Director Marcie Seidel, former UA Mayor David Varda, and UA Assistant City Attorney Thad Boggs.  Dr. Brad Mitchell will moderate the discussion.

The Raven's Eye: A Brock and Kolla Mystery by Barry Maitland

For DCI David Brock and DI Kathy Kolla, of Scotland Yard, a tragic accidental death becomes a possible murderous death among the houseboats that line the canals around greater London.  Maitland’s interwoven themes and well constructed plot subtly pull one into the story.  Good read.
