Triad -- When you look at the "year-in-review" wrap-ups from 2011, you realize there were plenty of scandals, trials, natural disasters and... just bad news. We have to cover that too but News 2.0 wants to continue to mix in good news along with the bad.
There is plenty of good news out there but we aren't going to hear it on the scanners. It isn't going to come across the AP wires.
Where does it come from? You!
Hero Central spotlights local heros who might not get a lot of recognition otherwise. Tell us about your hero. Last year, you told us about people who have devoted their lives to Special Olympics or Big Brothers Big Sisters. Others have taken a special interest in animals- from dogs to goats, to blind horses. You've told us about people who have helped families in need, when many times, they could use help themselves.
If you know of any people like this, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or go to facebook.com/LeighBrock2 You never know if your hero might show up on the news!
