Now that we have a new addition on Cortes, the first 2020 lamb at Sunny Brae Farm named hero, I have been thinking about heroes on our island. Oh ,we have so many. Sisters, nurses, teachers, paramedics, doctors, volunteers, neighbours kids, ferry workers, snow plowers, parents, friends, mentors, grocery store owners and their staff, grandparents, radio show producers, volunteers and the list goes on and on....

So my question to you is: Who is your hero? Write me a story about them or call and interview them. Send it to me with a photo if you can and we'll post it to the Tideline. We all need a bit of happy news these days to balance things out a bit so let's put some people in the spotlight. (please tell them it will be posted on the Tideline :)

Here are some sample questions, but feel free to ask anything you like!

When did you come to Cortes?
What do you love about Cortes?
What is your favourite Cortes memory?
Who was the first person you met on the island?
What is your favourite spot on Cortes?
What local organization are you involved in?
What do you love to do the most with your free time?
How are you involved in the community?
Can you describe your work?
What do you like best about it?
What advice would you give to your neighbours?
What is the best advise you have received in your life?

Have fun! I can't wait to see what ends up in my inbox.
