  Original Published: 1/24/2014Drug abuse was the topic of discussion during a 90-minute town hall meeting Friday afternoon at the Ontario branch library. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine hosted the forum, with seven local panelists including State Representative Mark romanchuk, Richland County Mental Health and Recovery Services Director Joe Trolian, Mansfield Municipal Court Judge Jerry Ault, Mansfield Police Chief Ken Coontz, Richland County Coroner Dr. Stewart Ryckman, Mansfield Schools Superintendent Brian Garverick, and Mary Bolin, owner of My Town Partners and the mother of a recovering addict. This was the fourth of ten such forums DeWine will hold around the state. He says the end result will be the formation of a committee to make recommendations for prevention, education, and treatment programs. He chose the Mansfield area because it has a large drug problem. More than eighty people packed the library's community room for the drug abuse forum.
