Less Overdoses In August Here In Steuben County
The Steuben County Public Health Department and partners are sharing updated overdose data for August: 23 overdoses were reported. One overdose was fatal, and 5 instances of Narcan administration were cited. “We are pleased to see the number of overdoses and fatalities decreased significantly this past month,” said Public Health Director, Darlene Smith. “Steuben County Public Health and our partners have been focusing much energy in providing Narcan training and making Narcan kits accessible in a variety of places throughout the county.” In August, four of Steuben’s overdose records cited opioids as a suspected drug causing the overdose. Four overdose records did not note a specific substance or were not able to be accessed for a full review, and the remaining 15 records indicated another substance was suspected to be the cause of an overdose. Other reported substances included cocaine, alcohol, prescription drugs, methamphetamines, and others.

Schumer: A Complete Role Reversal For Republicans
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is denouncing Republicans in congress for not being more supportive of the pentatgon. Schumer describes this situation as a new one and complete role reversal from what the GOP used to be like. "The Republicans cannot even agree to debate a bill to fund the Defense Department and the intelligence community," Schumer said on the floor of the senate recently. "They bulk on providing emergency aid to fighting off a Russian invasion. In the senate, our Republican colleagues are more supportive of our Ukrainian friends, to their credit. However, extremists in the GOP ranks are blocking the promotion of military leaders. What do the Republican leaders do? Nothing," Schumer stated.
Langworthy: The Impeachment Inquiry Is Justified
Republican Congressman Nick Langworthy says, the impeachment inquiry into President Biden is the logical next step as a result of the evidence brought forth by the investigations conducted by the Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means committees over the past eight months. Langworthy says he’s seen bank records showing the Biden family has gotten millions of dollars from foreign entities. "We have records of then-Vice President Biden flying his son, Hunter, around the world for foreign business meetings on Air Force Two," Biden said. "The House continues to uncover evidence of wrongdoing and is met with obstruction from Biden’s family lawyers and administration bureaucrats every step of the way."
