Help The Observer pick 2012's Story of the Year

MOULTRIE — What was the most important thing that happened in Moultrie and Colquitt County this year?

By the time Dec. 31 rolls around, The Moultrie Observer will have published more than 300 editions in 2012, and with several news articles in each paper, we will have published well over 1,000 local news stories.

Which of those has had the greatest impact on our community? Which one has meant the most to our readers?

Help us decide.

The Observer newsroom has chosen 22 major stories from newspapers we’ve published since Jan. 1. They’re listed in approximately chronological order in a ballot on Page 4A of the Tuesday, Dec. 4, newspaper. Beside each story is a space in which you can rank the story’s importance — 1 is most important, 2 is second-most and so on.

We’ve left a space at the bottom of the ballot where you can add one more story, in case we missed something.

Return the ballot to The Observer by Friday, Dec. 14, and we’ll calculate the top story of 2012 from your votes.

All ballots will be entered into a drawing, and one lucky winner will receive $25.

The winner of the drawing will be announced in the Jan. 1 Moultrie Observer, along with the Story of the Year.

The ballot will be repeated several times in The Observer's print edition between now and the deadline.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
