This is the last issue of The Winsted Journal for 2016. Nationally, the year will probably be best remembered for a very cutthroat and oftentimes angry presidential election.
The campaign leading up to the election was very divisive when it came to many social issues.
Even almost two months after the election, those divisions remain and apparently will continue on into the new year.
Locally, 2016 will be remembered for the seeds of economic growth being planted in the Northwest Corner.
