Top Ten SPI Stories

I haven't done this before, but I thought it would be fun to jot down the top stories of 2009. These are in no particular order and if I missed something, post it up in the comments!
  1. Leaning Tower of SPI got kerspoded
  2. Red Tide invaded for two months
  3. Beach renourishment happened
  4. No hurricanes hit SPI in 2009 (sweet)
  5. Home Rule was passed
  6. Paragraphs opened - now we have a book store!
  7. Isla Blanca is still open to the public
  8. Mostly recovered from Hurricane Dolly
  9. Mercado Days continued
  10. OK here's you chance folks, we need a tenth, people's choice here
Very special mention:
  • Rescue of Mohawk the dolphin by Scarlet Colley and the Marine Mammal Stranding Network, one of the true highlights of the year (thanks Rob!)

That was some powerful good advice, Ann. I feel so much happier, and don't have to worry if I insulted some important person. Thanks!
