Nine Central Oregon heroes were honored Tuesdy morning during the seventh annual Red Cross Heroes breakfast.   Among those was Dale Gilbert who put his life on the line as he used his pickup as a barrier when the driver of a small sedan had medical problems the night of December 13th on highway 97 south of Redmond. “She went on into the center lane and almost hit a couple cars head on, and that's when I couldn't watch someone get taken out head on "actually I'm going to go up here, I would rather them hit me than hit someone else head on. 911: "I don't want you to get hurt sir." Gilbert: ‘I won't.’ Because I figured my truck can be repaired but lives couldn't.”  That small sedan clipped Dale's truck and hit two other slow moving cars. Dale was not hurt. Others honored include Dianne Brock and Dan Hulbert of Caring for Troops, Fred Boos for going into a burning Bend home to save a woman, Sylvia Aker and Tina Countryman, Debbie Boettner for helping with preventative medicine in fossil, and Sergeant Ryan Craig and Corporal Kyle Thompson, both receiving significant injuries while serving in Afghanistan.
