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.”

 

“Our goal is to make Newberry County a safe and drug-free place for our youth,” said DFC Coalition Coordinator Terecia Wilson. “Prevention is a powerful tool to counteract drug use in our com”

Newberry Food Lion Declared Safe After Bomb Threat  

July 7, 2018

The Food Lion, located at 1821 Wilson Road in Newberry has been declared clear after a bomb threat that took place earlier Saturday evening. Newberry Police Chief Roy McClurkin said that at approximately 6:12 p.m. on Saturday, law enforcement received word of a bomb threat at the location. When law enforcement officials arrived on scene at 6:15 p.m., the store was evacuated to include all employees and customers as well as other connecting businesses.

 

McClurkin said the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) was notified and two bomb detection dogs were sent to check the building. Upon finding nothing in the building, it was cleared at approximately 8:00 p.m. Employees and customers were then allowed back into Food Lion and the other connecting businesses. At this time, the incident is considered an active investigation by the City of Newberry police and fire departments as well as SLED.

 

"These are serious offenses and we don’t take them lightly, but we want to make sure the public's safety comes first," McClurkin said. "That’s why the businesses were evacuated as well as others in the area."  Fire Chief Keith Minick said their off-duty response staffing came back to assist with the situation. “We are grateful for the support of our police and fire departments working together to isolate and mitigate the incident with the blocking off of the area to keep our citizens safe,” Minick said.
