Veteran earns Douglas County Dr. King award

From his time in the military to his time after, it’s always been we — not me — for Cpl. Walter Adams. “Sometimes people are broken, and they need to be helped, they need to be fixed. The best way to do that is to have a conversation,” he said. Adams has had many of those conversations during his time working with Douglas County Corrections. “Just because you are in this position now, while you’re here, you can look to make things better for yourself later,” Adams said. “And I say use this time to formulate your plan when you do get out.”
