Couldnt get prescription filled
To the editor:
Recently a friend of mine was in ER and discharged late in the evening with prescriptions to fill. They were advised to either go to Alliance or Boardman to fill them.
You would think, with two drug stores within walking distance of the hospital, who have a "drive thru window" there could be some arrangement made for local patients.
My friend was very ill and the trip was an unnecessary addition to his misery, thankfully his wife was with him to drive. For some, in this economy, the cost of gas plus the prescription could cause them not to get the medication they need.
I hope some thought will be given to this so a better solution can be offered when people leave ER in the future.

The Salem Senior Fun Day Committee would like to say a big thank you to Salem Rite Aid and its staff for co-sponsoring the lighting of the Christmas tree at Lincoln Place Apartments on Dec. 12. Salem Rite Aid takes a big interest in community events. Over 75 people got to enjoy the lighting of the tree,which Mayor Wolford did the honor of lighting it, they also got to enjoy a night of festive music by local talent Loren Coler, a visit from Santa and McGruff, courtesy of Salem/Perry Area Crime Watch. Rite Aid handed out three $25 gift cards for a door decorating contest that was held earlier that day and sponsored free refreshments.
The Salem Senior Fun Day Committee would also like to thank these other companies who donated to the event: Salem Giant Eagle, EMT Emergency Medical Transport, Ricky's English Pub, Green Rose Bistro and Alfredo's Pizzaria, and the Donald R. Cook family.
