Each of these choices can have a profound impact either positively or negatively, and each decision we make will have a result. That is the message from former boxer and professional wrestler Marc Mero who spoke last week at South Point High School.

Unfortunately, we see this all too common today with choices of young people and adults alike when it comes to drug and alcohol abuse.

Reaching out those who have turned to a life of drugs and alcohol by getting them help and educating on how to make better choices is key.
