Every time producer Jordan-Marie Smith would visit her hometown, it seemed as if another person she knew from high school had died of a drug overdose. She went back home to investigate, along with reporter Lenny Bernstein.Read more:Post Reports producer Jordan-Marie Smith always thought of her hometown of Greenville, N.C., as a nice place to grow up. A small city about halfway between Raleigh and the Outer Banks, it was home to a university, beautiful walking trails and lots of local businesses. But then she started hearing about the drug overdoses. Every time Jordan-Marie returned home to visit, it seemed as if another one of her high school classmates had died. She started making calls early this year and quickly learned of at least 16 young people who had died of drug overdoses. The group was connected by childhood friendships, a middle school basketball team and a high school. In a personal story about how a community moves through – and tries to recover from – a string of tragic drug deaths, Jordan-Marie and health reporter Leonard Bernstein connect Greenville to the national drug epidemic.

Welcome to December 2, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate loveable mixes and deep fried comfort. 
In the world of dogs, some come with pedigrees and champion bloodlines that win dog shows time and again, and others are…well, mutts. Unlike their purebred cousins, mutts are what Bob Ross would call “happy little accidents.” While working dogs are bred for a specific purpose such as bird hunting or warming a lap, mutts seem to march to the beat of their own drum. And that’s the very best thing about mutts; their personalities. On National Mutt Day, celebrate the uniquely weird dogs that make the most loveable pets.
Fritters are associated with comfort and come in three types: the basic dough kind, the battered meats and vegetables and the small cakes made from chopped food such as corn. Frying food in oil has been around for thousands of years and almost every culture has a tasty version. The technique of batter frying, however, was introduced by the Spanish and Portuguese in the late 16th century. This culinary inspiration spread to Japan, where it became known as tempura. Today just about anything can be frittered from beignets to squash blossoms. And of course there’s always good ole’ apple. On National Fritters Day, celebrate your favorite comfort food, no matter what language you speak.
I’m Anna Devere and I’m Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.
