Homer nurse Colleen James had been working in her field for about five years when she was confronted with something she'd never dealt with before - a child patient who was sexually assaulted.
A powerful winter storm lay a snow blanket from the South to the Northeast on Sunday, turning roads slick, stranding thousands of airline, train and bus passengers and putting a chill in retailers' day-after-Christmas sales.
"I just felt very passionate that there had to be a better way to take care of victims of crime, of sexual assault, so I started researching and I found out there were a couple programs in the United States using nurses to do the exams . and we had the first training there in Homer in 1993," said James, now a SART trainer herself.
"No one knew how to take care of that child and it ended up being a pretty hideous experience for everyone involved, especially the child," said James, who was working in Homer at the time.
