Pill drop box in Wilson’s Mills
Thanks to a grant from CVS/pharmacy, the Wilson’s Mills Police Department has a permanent drop box for unused medications.
“Every pill that is collected and destroyed prevents children from accidentally consuming these medicines and prevents them from being abused or sold in our community,” said Chief David Hess.
The drop box is located in the Wilson’s Mills Town Hall. There are no forms to complete, no fee to pay and no questions to answer, Hess said.
The chief urged Wilson’s Mills residents to dispose of their medications safely by using the drop box.
“We are grateful and thank CVS/pharmacy for its generous donation to help our community prevent prescription drug abuse,” he said.

Rouzer named a ‘Young Gun’
The National Republican Congressional Committee announced today that David Rouzer has become a Young Guns Vanguard.
The Vanguard program provides a framework for the NRCC to assist candidates running in Republican-leaning open seats as they head into the fall. It kicks off a working relationship between the NRCC and Vanguard candidates.
“David Rouzer will play an important role in increasing our House Republican majority,” said NRCC Chairman Greg Walden of Oregon. “Rouzer’s dedication and experience positions him to advocate conservative policies and fight the failed Democrat status quo in Washington. David will stand in stark contrast to the Democrats’ record of passing costly and hurtful legislation, like ObamaCare.”
Rouzer grew up working the summers on his family’s farm in Johnston County. He currently helps small businesses with marketing and business development through his consulting business.
