Monday a group gathered in Bethel to talk with the community about the region’s heroin and opioid epidemic and what people can do about it. This group included the FBI, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, local and state law enforcement, and local health officials. They talked with students at the schools during the day and with the community in the evening. KYUK’s Adrian Wagner and Anna Rose MacArthur discuss why the group came and what happened while they were here.
