On October 10th on the Every Woman show on KKFI, Sharon Lockhart and her cohost Alexis Burdick had a couple of guests on the show talking about their …rather Kafkaesque experience with local government after they found out they had bought what is known as a DART house. DART is an acronym for Drug Abatement Response Team, funded by COMBAT (Community Backed Anti-Drug Sales Tax
With the COMBAT Tax coming up for a renewal vote, Sharon and I thought you might want to hear about some serious concerns about a program that even its critics say has its good points. So, we decided to post an edition of Every Woman here.
