I can’t believe I’m about to wrap up another year at the Naples Daily News. I started in August 2011 and already 2013 is slipping away.
Here are a few recent clips from the last month. Again, we’ve got that paywall, but you’ll get the idea.
1) A brief encounter with U.S. Congressman Trey Radel at his rehab facility the day after local political leaders called for his resigation.
2) A daughter reels from the loss of her 91-year-old mother who was killed in a car crash a block from her home. The other driver is facing charges of reckless driving and vehicular homicide.
3) Friends of a college student jailed on murder charges speak out after a drug deal goes wrong.
4) Wannabe Santa gets jammed in the chimney then sent to jail after trying to break into a Naples home.
5) A Kentucky artist spends three weeks in Big Cypress National Preserve through a residency program.
6) A few vignettes about locals who are part of national statistics that show the popularity of tattoos is increasing.
