"For all the people who are complaining about the traffic pattern at Valley Mall, my wife included, if you don't like it, don't go out there. " "If any of you moms or dads suddenly saw their child with a big stuffed Taz. One was stolen off a porch on Jefferson Boulevard, just before Christmas. A reward is offered for its return. " "I think those obnoxious boom boxes should be restricted during the Christmas holidays. " "Some of us may not appreciate Christmas at all. My gripe is that out of 364 days of the year, I am invited to a family dinner at Christmas, only on Christmas.

Happy New Year Happy New Year! Are things much quieter around your home? Yes, the kids are tucked safely back into their school routine. We had the best of fun over the Christmas break. All the decorations are down and the house thoroughly cleaned. Now is the time to look forward to all this year has to offer. I am not a big one on New Year's resolutions. I believe that any changes you wish or need to make should be done ... not wait until a specific date. This is a good time, however, to take inventory of your goals and with the kids reaffirming their school routine, a good time to reinforce other rules and pledges that may have slacked off. Time for a picnic Kind of icky weather we have been having ... what a great time for a picnic!

Happy New Year! Did you make a resolution? Have you already broken it?   I haven't, and I haven't. I don't make formal first-of-the-year resolutions. I suppose that's a way of letting myself off the hook: If I don't make it, I can't break it, right? Maybe, but I don't need the new beginning of Jan. 1 to motivate me. No, my goal - stated much more frequently than annually - is to get organized. I went to my bookshelves to find the three books on organization I owned.

tiffanya@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Amid the noisemakers, tiaras and streamers, Karen Gish, the dietitian at Fahrney-Keedy Memorial Home, jumped each time a number was chanted as the "noon" year countdown drew to a close. "Five, four, three, two, one ... happy noon year!" Gish proclaimed, along with the others in the memorial home's dining room on Friday at noon. Yes, that's Happy "Noon" Year - not Happy New Year, said Michelle Morris, Fahrney-Keedy's activities director.

katec@herald-mail.com "Happy New Year!" people will scream as the clock strikes 12 tonight. The ball on top of One Times Square in New York City - a 6 feet in diameter, approximately 1,070-pound sphere - will drop 77 feet in 60 seconds, according to information on www.timessquarebid.org, the Web site of the Times Square Business Improvement District, which organizes the annual Times Square New Year's Eve celebration.

New Year's tradition could bring luck for year My father had many superstitions when I was growing up. The one that I remember the most and have been repeating for 50-plus years only happens on New Year's Day. When you are going into any home, building or store, the man walks in first. This will give you good luck all year. When my family would go to my parents' home for New Year's brunch, my father always stood at the door waiting on us and would make sure my husband would come in the door first.

"In the Wednesday, Dec. 28, edition of The Daily Mail I read that Washington County Public Schools cashiers have removed food entrees from students trays and replaced it with a sandwich. How demoralizing and embarrassing for the children. Some of these children may have self-esteem issues without being labeled as 'poor' or 'disadvantaged.' By labeling these children, you have made them a target for harassment by others. Its amazing, a multimillion-dollar Washington County High School stadium can be built, but no money exits to ensure a few children receive a decent meal.
