Our Focus on Excessive Drinking series, weekly since January, has largely focused on town-and-gown concerns, as you'd expect.
But when we went into this we realized this is a county problem, as seen clearly in DUIs, and the focus has now shifted to the county.
A Public Issues Forum on Thursday will take place at the Match Factory in Bellefonte to hear concerns from around the county.
The approaches to the meeting were outlined on our Views page Monday.
Thanks to the writers and we hope there's a good turnout in Bellefonte for this important topic.
