As we put 2010 behind us and embark on a new year, 2011, we can’t help but reflect on some of the major news stories of the past 12 months. Unfortunately it is the negative ones that seem to stand out in our memory.
For instance, who would ever believe that at the Wetzel Chronicle a story filed as “Armed Robbery” would make us question just which armed robbery that story recounted?
Lately fire stories also seem to be abundant. And of course the local court systems never fail to give us some news.
Sure, the news business always seems to be inherently negative, but 2010 may have been particularly harsh.
We hope the coming year brings some more heartwarming stories and reports of increased business and prosperity. Wetzel County is a great place to live, hopefully the news will reflect that.
