    to:tony Location: your house on Jan 29, 2009 at 03:40 PM The primary use of the fentanyl patch is to provide a continuous delivery of pain reliever ... In the past, pain relievers have been given as shots or pills on an as-needed basis.

    Now, Now, officer. I have been trying to defend your organization. That is not the attitude that I expected. It is extremely important to get the facts straight. We have rights too. We don't wish to have our town tarnished by an incorrect publication. That is a fault now with our country, incorrect publication. Don't be such a hero, a crippled man with PILLS.

    Why were the Beaufort Police making a drug bust in Morehead City? Did this actually happen on Cedar Street in Beaufort? There is a Cedar Street in both Morehead and Beaufort, but it doesn't seem to make sense that the Beaufort Police would be making a bust in Morehead. Someone might want to clarify this.
