Correction

The Nov. 17 Court Report incorrectly listed Julie Catherine Peterson as pleading guilty to possession of a controlled substance and sentenced to 10 days in jail, suspended license and a fine and probation. This is an old crime. She was in court that week seeking a hardship driver license so she could travel to work.
