Nearly 7 million pounds of corn covered about half of Ohio and State streets in Norwalk after a structural failure led to the collapse of the single metal grain bin on Nov. 30. That ranks as the top local story of the year.

The grain bin, built between 1945 and 1948, was 55 feet tall and was about 45 feet in diameter. It held about 120,000 bushels of corn, which weighed nearly 7 million pounds or 3,500 tons.
