Richard Baum, Acting Director of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), announced 719 Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program grants totaling $89 million. This represents the largest-ever number of DFC grantees in a single year since the program’s founding. The grants will provide local community coalitions funding to prevent youth substance use, including prescription drugs, marijuana, tobacco, and alcohol. The Newberry County Coalition on Underage Drinking, hosted by Westview Behavioral Health Services, was one of the grant recipients and will receive $125,000 in DFC grant funds to involve and engage their local community to prevent substance use among youth.  


“We’re losing more than 60,000 people per year to drug overdose, but if we can stop young people from starting to use drugs in the first place, we can save lives,” said Richard Baum, Acting Director of National Drug Control Policy. “Our local DFC coalitions are a key part of this effort because they are bringing together parents groups, schools, healthcare professionals, law enforcement, businesses, and others to prevent drug use and improve the health of the community.”

What was Hurricane Florence is now passing through Newberry County and will pick up speed and move on out this afternoon. Although we are in the direct path of this storm, the most dangerous winds and rains are north and east of us. Rain continues to fall, but winds have diminished. Steady winds of under 10 mph and gust of up to 15 mph can be expected. An additional two to four inches of rain can be expected. Due to previous high winds and rain, trees and limbs are expected to continue falling throughout the day. Motorists should be aware of debris and ponding water on roads.


Over the past 24 hours there were wind gusts nearing 40 mph. There was approximately 2" of rain, however there could have been more in other areas due to the nature of a tropical system. Fire/Rescue, public works, SCDOT responded to 45 downed trees blocking thoroughfares. There were widespread power outages throughout the county. Several tr affic accidents were reported with no serious injuries.


SC State Guard is assisting the Newberry County Sheriff's Office and First Responders with patrolling the interstate aiding evacuees in returning to the coast. Numerous motorists have been assisted by the State Guard during the evacuation.


The evacuated clients from the Berkley County Disability and Special Needs have returned. DDSN will be closed tomorrow to re-establish normal operations.


The School District of Newberry County will operate at regular schedule as it now stands.
