FAIRMONT — As we anticipate the start of a new year, we can’t help but look back at the events that shaped the year 2012.

Heartache. Celebrations.

Loss. Rebirth.

Scandals. Resolution.

Will 2012 go down in history as the year that everyone will talk about for decades to come? Maybe. A whole heck of a lot of things happened in 2012 to remember.

The staff of the Times West Virginian pored through the 364 editions of our newspaper — remember, there are two days left in the year for news — to come up with the highlights of the year.

We’ve done this in anticipation of our annual Year In Review special edition, which debuts next week. As you look through the year that was 2012, see if you can pick out which stories our staff selected as the top 10 of the year.

You’ll find the answers Jan. 9.

Jan. 2 — Alexander Grey is born at exactly 11 a.m., making him the first new baby of the new year at Fairmont General Hospital.
