Year in Review: Top Stories of 2010

I was reminded that it is time to take a look back when Marietta College posted their own Top 10 Stories list, so here they are…the 10 stories that received the most traffic on Writing on the Mall in 2010.

10 – Looking Back At Campus Flooding

This was the only story submitted by Tom Perry’s writing classes to make it to the Top 10.  Stacy Frederick did a great retrospective piece on the 2004 and 2005 floods.  The Ohio River went over its banks twice that year, flooding Marietta and the College in the process.  Frederick’s article had some great interviews with alumni and College officials, and shows the improvements made to the College’s flooding preparedness plans.

You can read that article here.

9 – Student Speak Out Coverage

Our Student Speak Out coverage was so popular this Fall that it actually crashed the site, which I was impressed by.  If you want to take a look back, here is the Spring 2010 and Fall 2010 live blog pages.  We will actually have our Top Questions from the Fall Student Speak Out here this week.

8 – Student Senate Posters Get Defaced

Maybe when I originally ran this story, it was a bit “Fox News”-ish.  But apparently readers wanted to hear about Student Senate candidate posters getting defaced.  The original story ran here.

UPDATE: DNA Evidence Allegedly Matched Marino Sample

Thanks to a follow-up article from the Marietta Times, more information is known regarding the 2009 Parson’s Hall sexual assault.

Brandon Marino, 23, who was charged with Burglary and Rape on Wednesday, had submitted a DNA sample to police as part of the investigation.  However, results had been delayed due to a backlog at the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.  Marino was not the only person asked to submit a sample, and was not the only person to submit a sample.

The Times reported that this is allegedly what happened on the morning of February 28th, according to an affidavit

According to the affidavit, the woman told investigators she awoke in the early morning hours of Feb. 28, 2009, and found an unknown suspect in bed with her. She began yelling and the suspect quickly exited her Parsons Hall dorm room on foot.

The woman told police her room door was unlocked but she had not given the man permission to enter.

~ Marietta Time report

Marino had bond set at $285,000 for the Washington County charges.  According to Marietta Municipal Court’s online database, he was charged with a First Degree Felony for Rape and a Second Degree Felony for Burglary.  He was indicted in an unrelated case for Aggravated Burglary and Burglary charges in Hamilton County in March.

Marino, who attended Marietta College from 2006 to 2008, had a disorderly conduct charge in April of 2009.  No result listed on the Marietta Municipal Court database.  It does list a warrant for his arrest for failing to appear.
