Heroism in Northeast Ohio Every year around this time, nonprofit groups honor the heroes in their midst, mayors shake the hands of heroic cops and firefighters. The newspaper aims a holiday-season spotlight on everyday heroes. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll examine the range of heroism -- it doesn't always involve running into a burning building. And we'll meet with some northeast Ohio heroes. Do you know anyone who deserves to wear a red cape? Tell us about it and join the conversation Monday morning at 9 with host Mike McIntyre..
