2022 is coming to an end, but many of the biggest, headline-grabbing news topics remain close to where they were to start the year: Republican candidates doubting the validity of an election, rising COVID cases and concerns about an impending surge of migrants and asylum seekers at the U.S./Mexico border.

While it may feel like the news did not move much this year, there are a number of important stories that saw major change between those big headlines. We are taking this week to look back on those stories.

Here's links to the episodes that are featured in our look back:

What will Arizona do as its share of Colorado River water diminishes?

Dealing with Arizona's PFAS problem

As it recruits, Tucson Police look to diversify its force
