Top 10 Stories of 2016 – Editor’s Choice

In the past, we have compiled a list of both Reader’s Choice and Editor’s Choice Top 10 stories. The Reader’s Choice was determined by the viewership numbers available to us through our online publication  However, when reviewing those selections this year, all of the most viewed online stories included arrests, fatalities or convictions.  We hear consistently that readers want more “good and positive news stories” and yet, thanks to technology, we can see that the public’s human nature and interest inevitably navigates to the more “negative” stories.  Rather than re-circulate those painful stories, we selected what we considered to be the top stories of our area that show either progress, significant change, or provide historical reference of a news event within our local community.  With great respect for the community in which we serve, we present to you the top news stories of 2016.
