Strobel award

Mike Strobel, always one of the Top 10 Reasons to Buy the Toronto Sun, will be collecting another award for one of his columns next month.

The Toronto EMS Media Award is for a recent column about Kevin Mills, a quadriplegic paramedic, and his beer-fetching yellow lab dog, Draco.

A Toronto Sun story says Bruce Newton, the awards committee chairman, called Strobel's Feb. 26 piece a "funny and compassionate" account of Mills' story.

The story says Mills, 29, was left a quadriplegic last year when a "freak wave threw him to the ocean floor off a Cuba beach last year."

Strobel will collect the award May 20 at Denison Armoury.

Congrats, Mike.
