Could have been a victim...

Submitted by reader as PAC news... This bright and beautiful morning could have turned ugly in an instant and I was reminded how quickly a situation can change.

June 7, 2005 Columbus Dispatch The May 24 Dispatch article "Missing daddy" was extremely powerful, especially to me.

But Saturday afternoon, says the Blade, "when the thief approached 91-year-old Katherine Woodworth in a West Toledo parking lot and demanded her purse, he got more than he bargained for.
