Even though the fair wasn't for another five months, the announcements of when to buy tickets got everyone excited. And the fair did not disappoint.




This exact same story was published by all of our sister stations and it made the list for each of them as well. I guess people have strong feelings about talking while driving!



This was a popular contest and we got a great response. I wouldn't mind going to Hawaii right about now. Maybe President Obama wouldn't mind me using his plane ticket.




Surprisingly, this was the only sports-related story on our list from 2011. I guess it just wasn't that good of a year for Washington athletics.



We were sick about hearing this news so close to Christmas. It could have happened to anyone. If there's one thing Tri-Cities is good at, it's joining in prayer for hurting families.




Like the previous story, this sad tale of a successful teenager succumbing to home fire touched all our hearts. As we look back, there are as many reasons to mourn 2011 as to celebrate.

This was a popular contest. I guess we all harbor a secret desire to win big. So much for Walden Pond!

This heroic tale of a women saving a teenager from a grizzly bear made our jaws drop.



Our No. 1 most read story from 2011 was about the American Idol finalists. This was a surprise to me even though I love these two kids as much as the next guy and want to see both succeed. They're both good looking; maybe they should rethink their relationship status. If things don't work out they could always sign a reality television deal, get married, then get divorced.
