Drug Dilemma: Area law enforcement struggles to combat 'bath salts'

June 23, 2011

When reflecting on the past couple of months, Wapakoneta Police Chief Russ Hunlock offers this simple maxim about people intending to experiment with “bath salts” — “don’t do it, don’t do it, don’t do it.”

A “Dance Worshop with Kent Boyd” is scheduled be held at 6 p.m. July 12 at Botkins High School with the proceeds to benefit the Botkins Music Boosters.
“It’s a good way to give back to the school,” Kent Boyd’s mother, Lori Boyd said. “Kent was very active in choir in high school.”
Boyd said her son recently held a dance workshop in Fort Wayne, ind., around Easter and she attended the event to help him sell t-shirts. She thought the workshop was a neat idea.
