What’s on your ‘top ten’? | Editorial

With Christmas Day just a week away, it’s way past time to have that shopping done, the tree trimmed, presents wrapped, and stockings stuffed.

Unless, of course, you’re like us, and you get a certain thrill and a special kind of kick out of leaving it all to the last minute, trying to pass off what’s simply a case of procrastination as some type of strategy.

The dark days of December are also a good time for taking stock of the many events that took place over the past 12 months; the good, the bad and the somewhere in between.

As we have done at this time of year since time began, or so it seems here at the Journal, we’ve been busy sorting through the headlines, flipping through the pages and scrolling up and down the website to put together our annual year-end list of the stories that had the greatest impact on San Juan Island over the last 12 months, the Top Ten Stories of 2013.

We think we’ve whittled it down and come up with a pretty good list, which will be published in the Dec. 25 edition.

Still, we’d enjoy hearing from you, and seeing what you think are the year’s biggest events. They may not match up. So, send us your top ten list, or top one or two, and we’ll compile and publish a “People’s Choice” top ten.

Send submissions to the editor, at srasmussen@sanjuanjournal.com. Happy holidays.
