How do you sum up a year of news, sports and entertainment in a 12-page special section?
Do you try to pinpoint the stories that had the most impact? The pictures that left you feeling amazed? The moments that will stay with you for years to come?
No matter the methodology, chances are you’re going to forget something groundbreaking, something left your community astonished or changed forever, or a story that simply seems too big to leave off the list.
There is no good way to do it … but it’s a task that must be done, both to honor the year for what it was and for what it represents.
Each December, just about every source of news or information compiles their own top-10 list to recap the year that passed. In this regard, Southern Rhode Island Newspapers is no different.
But what gives SRIN an advantage over most, however, is that what we present to you in this little insert isn’t simply another rehash of the things we saw and covered this year, it’s an in-depth look into the ideas, moments and events that shaped the year that was.
Pick up this week's Standard Times for a full look at the stories, moments and images that shaped 2010.
