The ex-wife of former Bull Eddy Curry was acquitted of a felony battery she allegedly committed against their son.
Lucky for the ex-wife of former Bulls star Eddy Curry, a Will County judge shares her outlook on sparing the belt and spoiling the child. "I'll tell you, ma'am, there's a lot of people who don't view things the way I do," Judge Daniel Rozak told Curry's ex-wife, Korie Kellogg, after finding her not guilty of aggravated battery to a child Friday. Kellogg, 30, was arrested and jailed in April by Mokena police. She had beaten her then 10-year-old son, Eddy Curry Jr., 10 times with a belt, said her attorney, Jeff Tomczak. Staff at her son's school told her to take her child to the hospital, Tomczak said. Hospital staff alerted police and officers ultimately took her in on a felony charge.

It goes without saying that only a select few make it in professional sports. But many more folks "make it" through their heroic work in our local communities. And they deserve your worship, too.
