The public is invited to the MTC Community Center, 61 Academy St. in Margaretville, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 24, to listen to and offer ideas at a free, four-county summit about how to deter opioid misuse in the Catskills and how to help people deeply touched by the crisis.  The involved counties are Delaware, Ulster, Sullivan and Greene.

The summit will also look into methamphetamine, or crystal meth, fast on the rise and, in some communities, replacing opioids as the No. 1 killer recreation drug.  A free breakfast and lunch will be served.
