Well, the world didn't end.
We figured it wouldn't. Yet that didn't stop residents in the River Region from seizing each day and living life to the fullest this year.
As we look back, we recognize that businesses came, and businesses went - as is always the case. We acknowledge that politics and plans put friends and neighbors at odds, as not everyone saw eye to eye on each issue. But at the end of the day (or year, in this case), we believe 2012 will be fondly remembered, as it was a year of giving, declaration and celebration in the communities of Lewiston, Porter, Youngstown, Ransomville, Sanborn and the north lake country.
Some of our more memorable moments are captured in these images.
2013 promises to be a year of growth and historic significance in this region.
The Sentinel staff wishes our readers a happy, healthy new year.
