2011 New Year’s Resolutions

Amanda Crider, Contributor

2011 is here. Most take this time to reflect on the past year remembering goals accomplished or remembering where they may have fell short. And so we begin to spin our wheels upstairs as we firmly dedicate ourselves to doing better or doing more. That is when our New Year’s Resolutions are born as we depart a year, beginning anew with clear affirmation for the goal ahead.

Here are just a few of the goals set by area citizens to start 2011 off with a bang:

“My resolution is to have a prosperous New Year and good health," said Lillian Folk.

Gina Ayers said, “I am going to stop smoking, think positive and stay healthy.”

Paula Brooker Guess said, “I want to take better care of myself and spend more time with my family and stop and smell the flowers not just the roses.”

“My resolution is to spend more money when it comes to advertising with the Advertizer-Herald,” said Donald Bessinger.

“My New Year’s resolution is to make new acquaintances and friends, spend less money and work harder to make my boss even happier,” said Barbara Walden.

“I am going to have a healthier eating lifestyle,” said Ellen Benton.

“I can’t keep New Year’s resolutions, so I don’t make any,” said Gene Schwarting.

“I am going to do a better job keeping up with my laundry,” said Paige Kemp.

Harriett Goff said, “I am going to live with no regrets.”

Shovone Gunnells said, “My New Year’s resolution is to be more independent for myself.”

“My resolution is to try and stay positive and have an optimistic attitude,” said Brandi Bell.

“My New Year’s resolutions are to strengthen my walk with Christ, have more patience and focus on today instead of tomorrow so that I can live, laugh and love everyday,” said Gwen Ryan.

Melanie Creel said, “I want to walk closer with God and teach people about His mercy and peace.”

“My resolution is to pray for the economy to turn around,” said Carl Cope.

“My New Year’s resolution for 2011 is to focus on what’s more important in life – serving God, family and friends,” said Charlotte Hutto.

“My New Year’s resolution is to be thankful for the blessing of good health,” said Duncan Williams.

These are just a few new year's resolutions made by Bamberg County residents all made with good intentions.

Happy New Year...out with the old and in with the new.

Detention Center Gives

For the eighth year in a row, Bamberg Detention Center employees have gathered to give a family a merry Christmas. “This is the first year that Joe Gilmore has participated in the annual Christmas event as the new Detention Center Director. Gary Brown, the prior director, retired earlier this year.

“We thoroughly enjoy this time of year,” said Lt. Raysor. “This is the time that we get to put smiles on little kids faces, the best gift we can receive on Christmas.

Ricky Sapp Donates

Christmas morning was a lot brighter for some needy children in Bamberg thanks to the generosity of Bamberg native, former Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School and Clemson University standout and present Philadelphia Eagles rookie defensive end Ricky Sapp. Thirteen (13) lucky children whose parents filled out applications will wake up Christmas morning to a bright shiny new bicycle thanks to Ricky’s benevolence.

Because the bicycles came unassembled to save on cost, the request went out for someone to assemble them so they could be delivered to the children for Christmas. Responding to the call for volunteers was BEHS 10th grade JROTC Cadet Dalton Gardner, who immediately volunteered to adopt the service learning project as his own. Cadet Gardner has been busy upstairs in the JROTC department putting the bikes together with the help of Maj. John McDonald, Senior Army Instructor at BEHS.
