It was a year that will be memorable here for us in the Tri County region for a variety of reasons. Crime, tragedy, milestones, controversy, and the many accomplishments of residents young and old filled the pages of last year's editions of Tri County Record.
While it is a difficult chore, we have chosen five stories from the countless number of news stories that have appeared in Tri County as the major news stories of the year:
. Supervisors call "time out"- March 6
Plan for Wal-Mart/Morgantown Crossings put on hold
. Discovered Body had decomposed - August 28
. Area Reacts; Area Responds - September 18 and 25
. Residents still not satisfied - November 20
New Morgan Academy open forum II
. It's Quintuplets - November 6
During January, we will rerun these stories beginning in this edition with "Supervisors call 'time out.' It appears on Page 17.
Some people may agree and some people may not agree with our choices. But we're sure we all agree that the Tri County region has a vibrancy all of its own. Whether it's a township meeting, a scout receiving Scouting's top award, students achieving in the classroom or on the athletic field, citizens coming together to help fight disease, or farmers taking steps to assure that their lands are not plowed under to sprawl, the Tri County region has more than its share of stories to tell.
As we move ahead into 2002, we hope you will continue to turn to Tri County Record as your source for local news. We will continue to cover your region as best we can.
