Palos Patch presents the stories most read by you in 2012.
This list is by the numbers, folks. I dug through the reports and found the stories that catch the most attention, according to our fancy data. As to be expected, the murders of John and Maria Granat in a Palos Township home remains an important story for readers. A motorcyclist who crashed on Southwest Highway creep up to a top spot later in the year. Readers also responded to Palos Patch's coverage of bald eagles in a local forest preserve. The top spot, however, goes to our coverage of a holiday cross removed from an Alsip water tower. See the top stories for 2012: Join the conversation.
