I think the closing of Silver Oaks and all of the seniors being evicted and 5 or more of them subsequently dying from the disruption of their lives is the biggest story.

I think the closing of Silver Oaks should be included. The closing is still having an impact on many residents. There are some that the move has not worked and are going to have to move again and others are still dealing with depression. People who are in their 80's and had their homes of 20 some years taken away it is not as easy to adjust as it might be for those of younger years.

I agree with Dina Harley and M.J. Holloway. The biggest story of the year was the Silver Oaks Place situation.
