With 984 overdoses and 126 deaths, Manatee County was ground zero in the state’s opioid epidemic in 2016, but things are starting to turn around.

Last year, Manatee County saw a 70% decrease in overdoses, but Manatee County Sheriff Rick Wells says focusing on that number is not his main priority.

“I don’t like to focus on that as much as I would like because you always know there is the ability for those numbers to rise again. Right now, we’re down, but we are having to keep our foot on the throttle every single second of the day,” he said.

Sheriff Wells said working together proves the most successful, but it’s never over.

“We are a long way away. We need to continue to fight the fight every day,” he said.

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
