Gazette reporter Mike Kordenbrock shares his five most memorable stories of 2019.
Some of these stories were very difficult to report and write. Others came easily.
I hope that these stories assembled together in one place can give readers some sense of the wide range of experience present in the lives of the people around them. Trying to understand the lives of others is key to an empathetic worldview. I think that's a worldview that is worthwhile but increasingly rare.
And maybe collecting these stories together will help readers to decide whether or not this information, and the work that went into it, is important to them.
There's no guarantee that newspapers will last forever. The same goes for journalism.
