It’s almost impossible to be objective when considering the biggest stories of any given year. An issue of the utmost importance to one person or group may matter not at all to another segment of the population. And so, as we look back onthe year at the year that was in Concord, we're leaving the deciding up to you – or to UVs, to be more precise.
What you’ll find below are the top Concord Patch posts in terms of pageviews, which is to say these are most widely read stories, polls, updates and photos galleries from 2012. It's an eclectic and surprising list, to be sure.
To be fair, all of the above have multiple spots among the Top 30 posts. As well, three top four overall are total outliers: Two are election-related UV grabs and the other is a fire follow-up that's more than a year old.
Along with those outliers, a few accident stories, Haloween costumes and some business coverage round out the Top 12.
Editor's Note: The stats used to compile this list were accurate through 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 28.
