This was a busy week helping old 2011 join the ages. I find that hopes and wishes of our folks mostly remain the same over the years, and I've written seemingly well over a thousand New Year columns. Wants and wishes remain the same; only the faces change.


We all pray for peace, for strife to end. We ask to be able to take care of our families. Health care is a big one for all of us. We hope our health improves, or at least maintains at the level it is as we write this.
