We've reached that time when we all begin to reflect on the year that's about to end and how we'll remember it.

Each individual has a take on how 2013 will be remembered in some personal way. Those of us who work at The Salt Lake Tribune, understanding we produce a first, rough-draft of history, have spent time reflecting on what 2013 wrought in terms of the economy, the environment, civil rights, education, politics, research, religion, culture, sports — and virtually every other topic Utahns care about.

Already, we've begun to publish some of these observations, including:

The 12 most remarkable firsts of 2013

Top 10 movies of 2013

Top 10 TV shows of 2013

Top 10 in music: The year in Kanye, country singles

The 10 best sporting events of 2013

Utah's best restaurant dishes of the year

Serena Williams is AP's top female athlete

LeBron James is AP's top male athlete

AP's top photos of 2013

Watch for more in the coming days.

Friday, for example, we'll publish The Tribune's photos of the year in our weekly "Look Back" feature at sltrib.com and in the print edition. On Saturday, you'll see our editors' picks for Utah's top stories, a list editor Terry Orme and others will preview Friday at 9 a.m. on "Behind the Headlines," a weekly radio program The Tribune's Jennifer Napier-Pearce produces and hosts on KCPW 88.3/105.3 FM. That look also will remember prominent Utahns who died in 2013.

The Tribune's Saturday Faith section will feature a story on the top faith stories of 2013, while the Sunday Mix will feature a look at the year's top Utah arts stories.

Despite our efforts at thorough reflection, we'll miss something Utahns care about.

Did something make news this year that you think deserves more recognition than we've given it?

Let us know.
