The Brave@Heart Awards seem to be an event where truly inspirational people are recognised.
Too often we read and hear about the latest diet fad or celebrity star falling from grace. Your story made a welcome change, to see real people making the news.
Well done to them all.

THE latest police station closures (October 2) are just another ruthless cost-cutting exercise.
The new Police Scotland appears to have no regard for community confidence or well-being.
Perhaps when Sir Steve House retires, he might view policing as more than simply a number of figures on a spreadsheet.

RE this week's health board IT glitch: to err is human, but to really mess up you need a computer.
Let's hope they sort this out ASAP.

Back on track
A form of Garl/Crossrail needs to be put back on the table again. Perhaps some private backers could be found.

Paying the price
I didn't know whether it was a case of congratulations or utter shock when I read (October 2,) that £13m of personal debt had been repaid under the Scottish Government-backed debt Arrangement Scheme.
The scheme claims to help people pay what they owe in a "dignified way."
In my day it was a simple - if you didn't have the money you didn't buy the goods. If you couldn't afford a holiday, you saved but you didn't get it on credit.
I know times are hard, but surely this kind of debt comes from people too keen to melt the plastic rather than save.
