HUMBOLDT COMMUNITY STARTS NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS
Living on the North Coast might give people the opportunity to branch out when it comes to setting New Year's resolutions.
"Paddle more, more kayaking."
That’s Damon Maguire’s goal. He sent out an email to his friends in the Explore North Coast kayak club to make sure it would happen.
“We’ve been going out two to three times a week,” Maguire said. “So I’m hoping to up that and go three to four if I can."
Richard Rohrback also plans to do his goal three times a week.
"Catch more fish and crab to feed the family," Rohrback said.
He said he'll continue this goal until the commercial crab season is over.
"Absolutely we're going to go have a fabulous crab feast this afternoon," Rohrback said.
Mikeala Smith’s goal might be considered a more traditional one.
"My New Year's resolution is to help with Betty Chinn and the homeless people."
She says she hopes to volunteer at the next fundraiser and donate clothes and food.
"I want to help them so they have things," Smith said.
And then there's this.
"Mine is to let myself go."
For Leonard Cahill that includes:
"No resolution, no diet, no exercise," he said.
He said he’s doing that because it’s the only resolution he can keep.
If you don’t have a goal this year there are 364 days to think of one for next.
