September in Review: Water Rates, Community Sharing and More Top Stories

We recap your most-read stories, the editor's favorite stories and other top headlines.

The month of September was filled with a community giving projects and political discussions during this election year.  
At the start of the month, the ShareFest 2012 committee completed 11 days of giving and concluded with the community coming together to halt the spread of heroin.

In the days between, residents took opportunities to discuss the pros and cons of political issues while commenting on policies and more. See below for the most-read stories, my favorite stories and five more headlines that impacted the community.
