Be it there­fore re­solved...

The Compass - - SPORTS - STORY AND PHO­TOS BY BUR­TON K. JANES

An un­known author said, “A New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is some­thing that goes in one year and out the other.” On a more pos­i­tive note, Ben­jamin Franklin said, “Be al­ways at war with your vices, at peace with your neigh­bours, and let each year find you a bet­ter man.” The start of a new year is a fit­ting time to re­solve to bet­ter one­self. It’s in­struc­tive to note that in the in­ter­views con­ducted for this piece, sev­eral in­di­vid­u­als stressed the im­por­tance of health and fit­ness. What­ever your res­o­lu­tions are for 2011, we wish you well. May your per­sonal re­solve be richly re­warded by year’s end. Name: Linda Roberts Home­town: Clarke’s Beach Res­o­lu­tion: Through­out 2010, I came to re­al­ize there are many peo­ple who are suf­fer­ing fi­nan­cially, men­tally or phys­i­cally. My New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is to be more ob­ser­vant of the needs of those peo­ple around me and as­sist them in any way pos­si­ble.
