Every year, we select our Top 10 stories, and it can often be a difficult task. There are the straight new stories: grade-changing questions with Lodi Unified School District, the Mokelumne River being closed because of flooding, a look at a public-private partnership with the Lodi water treatment plant and California redistricting.
But what about some of our other stories that are more feature-based? We wrote an incredibly detailed profile of one of our carriers and St. Anne's piano player, Jeff Kooyman. I took a look at public access along the river. The entire newsroom rejoiced when the Taco Truck Cookoff was announced.
So what are some of the stories that touched your life this year? Send me your top 10 (or your top two or three) either as comments or as an e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
