Lu Lu, one of the two hamsters on display in the Children’s Library of the Selma-Dallas County Public Library made news in September when she escaped from her cage and went on an extended, un-escorted tour of the library. It is one of the Times-Journal’s photos of 2012. -- Ashley Johnson

Times-Journal seeks input on year’s top stories

Published 7:59pm Wednesday, December 26, 2012

With just a few days remaining in 2012, the staff of the Times-Journal is looking back and trying to determine what the top stories and photos of the year were.
“You can’t see the forrest for the trees,” is the phrase often used when someone is too close to a situation to see important details. In this case, the staff is seeking the input from readers to help select those top stories and photographs.
We know there was a municipal election and a manhunt that rivoted the region for days. Those stories are likely to be included in the final list, but it is those other stories such as the hamster escape at the Selma-Dallas County Public Library that we think deserve some consideration.
To offer input on the top stories and photographs of 2012, log on to the Times-Journal’s Facebook page at and leave a message.
The top stories and photos will appear in the Tuesday, Jan. 1 edition of the Times-Journal.
