    Column as I see ’em …
    Now that 2010 is in the books, a shout out goes to each and every one of our readers and advertisers for making the year an outstanding one.

    Each new year offers an opportunity for a fresh start. It’s a time to make changes in our lives, or at least to make resolutions for change. But change is hard, usually. Habits are hard to change.
