As a Friday treat, here is a look back at the stories that made the headlines this week, as well as some you may have missed.
Also popular were articles looking back at the maritime news of 2012, and a little bit of nostalgia, pictures of Falmouth's waterfront from years gone by.
Keep your eye out for more of these in the weeks to come
And of course my favourite: the mystery of the wandering cockerel on Pendennis point is solved as owner explains how Dennis escaped to freedom.
Check back tomorrow for our picture story special, looking back at the week's photo stories.
