Looking back

Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012, 8:56 p.m.
 

On the national, international and interplanetary front, 2012 will be remembered as the year that Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, a shooter massacred 20 children in a Connecticut school, Barack Obama was re-elected, Syria dissolved into civil war and Curiosity landed on Mars.

Locally, 2012 was no slouch, either. In many ways, it could be viewed as a year of change for the Franklin Regional communities.

It was a year of considerable staff turnover — due to retirements, a departure for a new job, a tragic accident and a sex scandal — in Franklin Regional.

It was the year that a Miracle made it so that people with disabilities could enjoy sports in Murrysville.

It was the year Export residents learned they could breath easily during heavy rainfall.

It was 2012. And over the next few pages, we'll recap the top half dozen local stories.
