The wild weather during 2012 has to be considered one of the top stories of the year. The Nelson Star is looking to hear from you about the stories and issues that stood out during the last 12 months.

Looking back on 2012 in Nelson area

Like every year, there was plenty for the editorial team to write about in 2012.

This is the time of year in the news cycle where we take the opportunity to look back on the year that was. It’s a good exercise and given that news typically grinds to a halt come middle-December, pretty much a necessity if we want to fill these pages.

Like every year, there was plenty for the editorial team to write about in 2012. From tragedy to triumph, the headlines kept Star readers engaged twice a week.

We’ve started to dive into the 90-plus editions that have been produced to this point in 2012. Starting in January, we are looking through the pages to pick out the most compelling and most interesting of the last 12 months.

After Christmas, we’ll start unveiling those determined to be the best stories, photos and newsmakers of 2012. The items that left a lasting impact.

We don’t want to do it alone and that’s where you come in. This newspaper is a reflection of our community. We might coordinate the effort twice weekly, but you are the ones who set the course. It’s your stories, your opinions and your lives we are documenting over the course of a year. In keeping with that, we want you to tell us what you thought stood out in 2012.

Let us know what comes to mind when you look back on the year. What stories, issues and people made it to the top. Email us your ideas and thoughts at editor@nelsonstar.com or drop them by our downtown office. We will find room to include them in our final send-off for 2012.
