You can save a life with naloxone
One morning, as I was walking up the ramp to the Kingston-Edmonds ferry, a call for a doctor came over the public address system. In the staging area, a person had been found unresponsive in their vehicle. By the time I arrived, the individual had been removed from the car and was laying on the ground, lips blue due to low oxygen levels in their bloodstream. They were dying of hypoxia. We later learned it was the effect of an unintended overdose of an opioid medication. Unfortunately, as the ferry workers later told me, this is not an unusual occurrence. They sprang into action and together we performed CPR until the ambulance arrived. Within minutes the paramedics had administered a drug called naloxone, and the traveler rapidly revived, expected to have a full recovery.

If this development, with its proximity to Barker Creek and Island Lake, doesn’t qualify as worthy of further attention when the intent is to add over 300 homes, then I don’t know any projects that ever will. Let’s just rip out all the trees and cover the whole county with concrete!
