River Falls Wisconsin 2815 Prairie Drive / P.O. Box 25 54022

Several local people are scheduled to be part of a feature on the Oprah Winfrey network Sunday night beginning at 8 p.m.

The show, Oprah Prime, is featuring the growing heroin problem in Wisconsin and contains interviews with Hudsonites Karen Hale and Sherri Hole who both lost their children to overdoses last year and Phil Drewiske, a recovering addict who is working on life after heroin, and Brady Peterson who is also in recovery.

Producers spent three days in the Hudson area and also spoke with HPD Det. Sgt. Geoff Willems, St. Croix Drug Task Force Investigator Jim Mikla and St. Croix County Medical Examiner Patty Schachtner.

“A Night to Know the Truth,” a free presentation on drugs and addiction is being presented at Hudson High School on Wednesday, March 12, from 6:30-8 p.m.
