A look back at 2010

At Cabarrus News, we're taking a quick look back at 2010 to celebrate the great work done by staffers and others who covered the community.

We can't include all the high-impact stories in this limited space, but we can offer a sample of photos that highlight people who made the year memorable.

It's tempting to leave out the sad moments. But those moments show how much people care about each other, and it would be wrong to pretend they didn't happen.

So amid mixed emotions, we say goodbye to 2010. We appreciate those who helped us cover the community throughout the year.

We look forward to connecting even more in 2011.
