Dear readers:

Here is the 11th collection of Salt Lake Tribune Dream Headlines. To compile this annual list, we asked readers to suggest headlines that they would like to see in the coming year. Some contain hope. Others humor. A few, cynicism. As always, it was that kind of year.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we did. Our thanks to all who offered their ideas.

Happy New Year!
