To reflect is always interesting

It’s always interesting to look back as the year is about to come to a close. Looking at the events, the people and the news that impacted us, changed us, irritated us or even fascinated us, is one of the rites of late December. Today, we look at the top stories of 2005 Nos. 6-10A. The stories were selected and ranked by the Post Independent newsroom. On Sunday, we will countdown the top five stories of 2005.Everything from crime to tragedy to political dissension to a new shopping center, and even those pesky planters and roundabouts, left an imprint on 2005. Sometimes, news is open for interpretation. News events like Buster the Hurricane Katrina dog or former NBA star Dennis Rodman’s brief appearance in Glenwood grabbed headlines.But a community will always experience the full range of events. From the lighthearted to the tragic, 2005 had a little of everything.Looking back leads to reflection and debate. It can be fun, it can be sad, and it can indeed be fascinating.It can be said every year, but 2005 was a year like none other.
