    Way to go Curt Petersen, The lady he helped rescue from the attacker is a wonderful volunteer in the Northwest community. I understand she was injured by the scumbag attacker. The judge who gets this case needs to nail the guy.

    Curt Petersen, it is because of people like you that the world is a better place. I hope that you are honored on the baseball field in front of the community for the wonderful action you took. We are proud you are a member of our home team.
