The News TribuneDecember 31, 2013 

Readers voted on their top stories of 2013 -- Boeing Machinists reject deal, State Farm adding jobs to downtown Tacoma, the Sonics not coming back to Seattle (yet).

But those stories, while often the talk of the community or having an impact on life in the South Sound, are not necessarily what struck a chord online in 2013.

A job lottery, a fatal fire, a beloved pianist, local restaurants on national TV, crime stories -- those are what caught the attention of thenewstribune.com readers in 2013. Here’s our most popular online stories for 2013, with rankings based on clicks from readers within Western Washington.*
