There has never been a shortage of news in West Point and Clay County in the past.
2012, however, proved to distinguish itself as far as newsworthy stories are concerned.
This year was truly a banner year for this community, as we saw the West Point/Clay County Growth Alliance forge a partnership with the Columbus/Lowndes Development LINK in the Spring, which by September had inspired leaders in Clay, Lowndes and Oktibbeha Counties to drive toward an economic partnership that would encompass the entire Golden Triangle region.
The Golden Triangle Regional Development Authority tops this newspaper’s list of stories of the year.
The return of our soldiers of the 223rd Engineer Battalion from Afghanistan during the month of September stands at the top of that list as well.
The reunions of families and the new unions between counties are top news stories for 2012, but they are sure to make 2013 a better year for West Point.
