        “In the next 28 days, I overdosed and died four times. After each time, a D.A.R.T. officer showed up and said if I needed help to call. I told him to go screw off.” 

      Ashley Sallie continued, “They kept showing up. They kept trying to get me help I didn’t want. They wouldn’t take no for an answer. Thank God they saw something in me that was worth saving, because I wouldn’t be here today.”

      Ashley told her story in a video produced for the Lucas County Sheriff’s Drug Abuse Response Team (D.A.R.T). The video aired at a presentation on the opioid crisis given last week to the East Toledo Club and the public. Her interaction with D.A.R.T. officers began when she checked herself into a psych ward to detox. She credits her new-found clean living to the persistence of the officers who led her to a treatment plan and sobriety housing.

February, 2008

        News: The Pearson North Committee sought volunteers to work on the historic Johlin Cabin, the centerpiece of a proposed historical interpretation center at Pearson Park. Skilled volunteers were needed to install floor planking and veneer stone around the foundation.

        Deputy Chief James O’Bryant commands the criminal investigation division of the Toledo Police Department, however, he might not have been qualified to join the force in 1967 when his father did.

        O’Bryant’s short stature (5-foot-8¾) may have precluded him from applying by one-quarter inch. Much has changed in policing in the past 50 years and O’Bryant shared some of those changes when he spoke last week to block watch leaders and members of the East Toledo Club.
