IN PRAISE OF LOCAL HEROES

What is the definition of a hero? For some people it is a person like Super Man, Bat Man or Spider Man. For me the real definition of a hero is simply someone who puts other people before themselves. Just like Mrs. Proulx and Mrs. Sharman. Every Monday and Wednesday they coach Senior Girls Basketball for a couple of hours. They could be spending that time with their families and relaxing instead of coaching a bunch of crazy teenage girls. Don?t forget all the hours they spend organizing tournaments either. For the first time in countless years Tumbler Ridge has had basketball tournaments thanks to these coaches. They went above and beyond the expectations of a good coach. Mrs. Proulx and Mrs. Sharman are true heroes and for all that they have done I thank them.
