  • Two classes give smokers chances to quit

    Many people make promises to themselves in the month of January, either to spend more time with family, lose weight or save more money. Others resolve to put down their cigarettes for good.

  • Make 2010 a good year

    By the end of this week, a new year will have begun - 2010. Almost hard to believe, isn't it?

    As we move ahead, we know that New Year's resolutions can be a dime a dozen. We all make them, and few of us follow them through. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

    We may have a few personal things that we're going to resolve in 2010 - trim a few pounds, stop smoking, get right with God, rekindle a friendship, or be a better person.

    As a community, our resolutions may not be so personal, even though we could certainly work as one toward many goals.
