Last Tuesday, June 7, local leaders and others held a community discussion at Columbia Jr./Sr. High School to address the heroin epidemic in the area. Columbia Mayor Leo Lutz and Columbia Borough Police Chief Jack Brommer led the discussion. An audience of about 70 people listened to a panel of six describe their encounters with the drug and users under its influence. Audience members also addressed the panel in a subsequent question-and-answer session.
