Several area police agencies will collect prescription drugs for safe disposal during the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, September 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The drug take-back events are intended to prevent abuse or misuse of prescription drugs no longer needed by their owners. Keep Delaware County Beautiful, the local recycling and litter prevention program, and the Delaware General Health District encourage residents to take advantage of these opportunities to dispose of drugs in an environmentally safe way. Flushing drugs down the drain can pollute water resources and should not be done.
Drug Take-Back sites in and near Delaware County participating in the Sept. 29 event include:
The Powell Police Department, 47 Hall St., Powell 43065.
The Kroger parking lot at 7100 Hospital Drive, Dublin 43016 (Franklin County Sheriff’s Office).
The Kroger parking lot at 55 W. Shrock Road, Westerville 43081 (Franklin County Sheriff’s Office).
Mosquito traps set weekly throughout Franklin County found more positive West Nile virus in the east section of Dublin, Ohio.
In order to reduce the number of adult mosquitoes, Franklin County Public Health will be spraying the east and north sections of Dublin on Tuesday, August 28, – weather permitting – at 8:30 p.m. The north area was scheduled for spraying on August 21 but was not sprayed due to improper sign notification.
For more information on mosquitoes, safety tips during spraying and the West Nile Virus visit www.DublinOhioUSA.gov/mosquito or www.myfcph.org. Residents can also call (614) 525-BITE (2483) to report problem areas in their community.
Shawn Pendegraft thought he’d found east street on his way to make millions — taking over foreclosed homes in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area.
Pendegraft and five accomplices would set-up trusts and use them to file deeds on properties in the $800,000 price range. They then filed $1.2 million in fake liens against the homes and moved into at least one of the homes. ABC-11 in Charlotte gives the rest of the account.

That’s North Carolina Can It Happen Here?
Well, squatters moving into the homes isn’t a new thing and “Cousin Eddy” highlighted that squatters weren’t just in run-down communities. For those that forget, Randy Quaid – “Cousin Eddy” of National Lampoon fame – and his wife were arrested for trespassing after being found squatting on their foreclosed mansion.
But could squatters actually claim ownership of the home in Ohio?Toby asked that question to several local auditors and the response was chirping crickets. The short answer is “I don’t think so, but considering that no one responded I’m not sure.”
Umm … Okay, so Why Do You Say That?
Okay, Ohio is a court-ordered foreclosure state which makes it much harder for anyone to claim or prove ownership of a home.
