Tamica Jeffers, 33, of Dillsboro was arrested after allegedly overdosing at a McDonald’s in Ohio.

A Dillsboro woman accused of overdosing on heroin with her husband at a McDonald’s in Ohio is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

33-year-old Tamica Jeffers is facing child endangerment charges in Hamilton County which stem from an incident March 9.

Her trial follows the conviction of her husband, 37-year-old Robert Palmer on March 28. He was found guilty of child endangerment and sentencing is scheduled for next Monday.

Police say Jeffers and Palmer were found unresponsive in the restaurant and needed life-threatening treatment while their two children, a 5-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy, were with them. Authorities claim the couple admitted to using heroin.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run.
