Local leaders held a round table discussion, talking about issues affecting young adults. Questions were raised about programs designed to help youngsters and how they can be improved.

"We need to check ourselves to make sure we're doing everything we need to do to the benefit of our kids. We want to make sure we're doing that. We're checking every, every road to make sure our kids have the best possible opportunity for a successful life," said Edward Dixon, Gadsden County Commission Chairman.

Dixon made references to the death of Camellia Byrd, a teenager who died in a car accident involving alcohol. The group was discussing how they can prevent tragedies like Byrd's from happening.
