With the close of a decade, the Journal Record has reviewed the last 10 years and has selected the most significant news stories that transpired between 2010 and 2019.
The top story, the Hackleburg tornado and subsequent rebuilding efforts, was listed in Top 10 story lists over several consecutive years, which has all been collected into one synopsis in the following decade review.
In contrast, some of the following stories were not selected as an annual top story over the last 10 years, but their cumulative development and importance were taken into consideration.
Other stories will continue to develop in the next 10 years, such as the downtown Hamilton double-homicide and trial of alleged shooter Jimmy Cooper, the completion of freedom FIBER and Interstate 22 economic development.
