Remembering 2013 in Winchester: Tragedy, Unity and a Hometown Hero

This was a year like no other in recent memory. A year marred in tragedy, terrorism, unity, bravery and triumph. A year of victory for Red Sox fans. A year in which we learned the phrase "Boston Strong."

It was a year in which Winchester took on the most expensive project in Town history. A year in which an officer on the brink of death honored veterans of Winchester.  

The following articles were the biggest stories of the year. Unfortunately, many of these stories are not too joyous. If you want to leave a memory from 2013, post it in the comments section. Hopefully, they are happier and more uplifting than most of the stories listed.
