SALUTING LOCALS ... The sixth annual Local Heroes Week is coming up at Palo Alto's Media Center, with a reception and cable programming scheduled. Each year, the Media Center asks for nominations from the public, then chooses local "heroes" who have contributed to the community and have a good story to tell, producer Louise Pencavel said in a press release. This year, the six honorees will be honored at a reception at 4 p.m. on March 18 at the center, 900 San Antonio Road. After that, interviews with the honorees will be aired on Channel 30 and 27. This year's local heroes are: Craig Diserens, co-founder of the volunteer hunger organization Village Harvest; Abe Abullarade at the mentoring program Center for a New Generation; longtime international volunteer Judy Kramer; Sister Trinitas, the creator of the Rosalie Rendu Center for immigrant women and children; Mary Ojakian, who volunteers to educate about and prevent suicide; and Kelly Kobza, founding director of the Haiti aid organization Greater Good. For a program schedule, go to http://www.midpenmedia.org . To RSVP for the reception, call Pencavel at 650-494-8686, ext. 36.
