Tri-Valley Heroes: We're looking for a few good men and women . . .

Original post made by Gina Channell-Allen, president of the Pleasanton Weekly, on Aug 2, 2012

Daniel Boorstin wrote, "In our world of big names, our true heroes tend to be anonymous. In this life of illusion and quasi-illusion, the person of solid virtues who can be admired for something more substantial than his well-knowness often proves to be the unsung hero: the teacher, the nurse, the mother, the honest cop, the hard worker at lonely, underpaid, unglamorous, unpublicized jobs."
