Usually top pages viewed are related to crime or tragedies, but I’m happy to report at least one with a more positive tone crept into the top sites viewed this year. There was an intense interest in the possibility of a new grocery story – likely a Kroger – locating in Monroe. I’m told this is not off the table yet, but at the moment there does not appear to be any movement either. Something to watch for in 2017.
Here are the top 10 stories.
