Letter: Community fortunate to have Joe Peterson
Although I don't know Joe Peterson personally, the local corrections agent written about in the Enterprise dated Nov. 17, I could professionally identify with him. I am very proud of him. It is people like him that make a positive difference.
Sarah Smith, the article writer, did an excellent job in articulating and capturing the philosophy of what corrections is all about and the day-to-day unsung work of a corrections agent.
Your community is fortunate in having a Joe Peterson who reflects professionalism and a sense of humanity and realism.
