We've offered the opportunity for KROC AM listeners to nominate someone they think deserves to be honored as "An American Hero".

The person chosen will win a fabulous prize package including 4 VIP tickets to Harvest Jam at the Olmsted County Fairgrounds Saturday with VIP parking, a beautiful gift basket courtesy of First Alliance Credit Union, complete with a $100 VISA gift card, plus a Gutter Helmet from Home Solutions Midwest.

Our winner was nominated by Amanda Bradley who wrote a nice piece about a member of the Rochester Police Department, William Cottrell.  I talked with Bill to let him know he was chosen and how much he is appreciated.

Bill will be honored on "The American Hero" stage around 6 o'clock Saturday along with other American Heroes chosen through our other Town square Media station websites.

We hope to see you at Harvest Jam Saturday!
