Munson Medical Center says that Bob Cooney is a hero for fighting the opioid crisis. They’ve given him the Community Hero Award. Of course, there’s a press release, and oh yeah, he wants to be a judge.
So we here at Dirty Traverse are awarding Paul Jarboe the Dirty Traverse Community Hero award. For quietly helping people facing legal challenges without needing to issue a press release about it. Perhaps there’s nothing more heroic than helping people when they’re facing trials (literally and figuratively), and when you don’t get any glory for it like prosecutors get for grandstanding about how they’re “tough” on crime.
