Seattle Times letters to the editor

December 31, 2014 at 5:40 PM

The best headlines for 2014 from our readers

Happy New Year’s! Instead of resolutions, we asked readers for some 2014 wishes in the form of headlines they would like to see.

Below are headlines from readers who answered our call — nearly 300 headlines were sent in. Congratulations to Pete Sullivan from Seattle who offered what the editorial staff deemed the best reader headline. He will receive a Seattle Times coffee mug to sip from in 2014. Check out his and other readers’ submissions below.

Our editorial staff also came up with headlines. Perhaps these headlines might provide some inspiration for elected officials and policy leaders for their own New Year’s resolutions.

The winners of the contest are: first place, Jill Wright of Edmonds; Lana Ohara of Bremerton; third place, Glenn Phillips of Seattle. They will receive, respectively, a Seattle Times sweatshirt, water bottle and calendar.

As you ring in the new year, enjoy the wishful thinking:
