The year 2014 got off to a busy start with a fire in a Godwin Avenue home that displaced four families, which makes up three of the top 10 stories off the month. A police chase, the suicide of a local teen, and the Bridgegate scandal also accounted for lots of site traffic in January. The happiest post in the bunch belongs to Rebecca Rabeiro who was named Record Athlete of the Week.
