This is an open letter to Wilkes County Sheriff Chris Shew to let you and your entire staff know how much the citizens of Wilkes County appreciate your hard work of protecting us and our children from a cancer of drugs that not only destroys a person’s life but destroys our entire community, including our children.

We can now hope that our judicial system will follow up and get rid of this dangerous affliction in our community.

ROGER ELLIOTT,

North Wilkesboro, N.C.
