      Devastating because it's true. I'm not sure the prescriptions offered in the article will work but we so need to have this conversation.

      Wonderful. I'm so glad to see more of this type of reporting. Journalists are quick for the big stories of crises overseas and some of the horrifying realities of life in dying US cities get forgotten. More of this!

      It's sobering, the dead knapp family members are about my wife and my age.

      Over the years I've seen people fall into the despair trap around here, and, compared to Yamhill, we have a decent place to find work and support.
