Staff Report

Every year many of us make new year resolutions. Some make a resolution to not make a resolution. Many keep theirs, and others don't. However, all in all most people would agree the new year is a time to start again.

A quick Google search showed what the top ten new year resolutions were.

Of course, there was the lose the weight idea, along with spending more time with family and friends. Others included: getting organized, quit drinking/smoking, help others, learn something new, and to just enjoy life more.

The folks at The Advertizer-Herald are just the same. Some of us have our resolutions, and others just shake their heads when they're asked what they plan to do for the new year.

Joyce Searson, Publisher of The Advertizer-Herald, having just had a total knee replacement, plans to take better care of herself by eating healthy, exercising, and enjoying life to the fullest.

Reporter and Advertising Representative Mallory Biering said she plans to be a better driver and to keep her car clean.

No matter if you've made a resolution, or if you've made the resolution to not make a resolution, good luck in achieving your goal.
