Editor's note: In our second year reporting on Kent, Kent Patch produced 2,000 news articles — excluding events and announcements — about everything from lost pets to the city budget.
But only 10 of those stories were the most read on our site after having received thousands of individual readers each.
Counting down to New Year's Eve, Kent Patch will announce the top ten most-read stories of the year with the story that received the most readers announced on Dec. 31.
Today we're revealing story No. 8, which originally appeared July 10, 2012, and annouced the closure of Funky Ladles due to street construction outside the business. The story netted 72 reader comments, and fortunately for fans of the eatery the closure proved shortlived.
