There is no debate – COVID 19 is the Number 1 story of 2020 in Arab, Alabama, the United States, the planet.
In fact, an argument could probably be made that the top 10 stories of 2020 involve COVID – from local residents fighting it, to residents who received the trial vaccine, the real vaccine, the deaths, the businesses shut down, the schools closing and everything else COVID related.
COVID-19 likely will go down as the top story of the decade and, probably beyond.
The Tribune usually asks a panel of area residents to choose the top 10 stories of the year. This year’s list will be a little different.
Because there is no doubt that COVID is the number 1 story of the year, we asked the panel to pick the top 11 stories – with number 1 being settled already.
The following is a list of stories that we have chosen as the rest of the top stories of 2020 in Arab and the Brindlee Mountain area. The panel has chosen numbers 2-11 as the stories of the year.
