Thank you for heroin articles

To the editor:

I commend you and your reporters, Evan Goodenow and Jonathan Delozier, for the excellent coverage in the Dec. 29 issue of the Oberlin News-Tribune of the very serious problem of opiate addiction and overdose deaths. There has been too little public discussion of the heroin epidemic and possible ways of counteracting it, and it is very valuable to have our local newspaper provide such high quality coverage of the issue. Thank you!

John D. Elder
