If there’s one thing the past two years have taught us, it’s that even when the world stops, news doesn’t. In 2021, we began forging our way toward a sense of normalcy amid the ongoing pandemic with hope and optimism.

As local governing bodies continued holding virtual meetings, schools welcomed students back on campuses, in-person events started making a comeback, businesses reopened their doors to patrons and even when tragedy struck, we were there to cover it -- whether from a square on Zoom or masked up in the field.

A variety of articles ranging in topics from turmoil to triumph made their way into "Our 21 Most Read Stories of 2021" as determined by you -- our readers -- and the stories you viewed the most. As we prepare to usher in 2022, take one last look back at the Weekly's top 21 headlines of 2021.
