Resolutions for new year

The Norman Transcript, Jan. 2, 2013

Happy New Year. We’re optimistic about 2013, just as we were about 2012. Here are some collective resolutions, just in case you can’t come up with any on your own today:

Resolved to be healthier in 2013. Our state doesn’t have the best track record, but we have improved a few notches in recent years. The local health department’s motto is “Eat better, move more and be tobacco free.”

Resolved to accept the upcoming road work as part of the price of a safe, reliable transportation infrastructure. The Main Street/Interstate 35 overpass work will begin Monday.

Down the road will be Lindsey Street overpass reconstruction and widening from the interstate to east of Berry Road, State Highway 9 overpass reconstruction and road widening and resurfacing of the Canadian River bridge.

Resolved to continue and shop local when possible. The merchant owners are your neighbors and are often the first to contribute when local needs arrive.

Resolved to support economic development that helps create and maintain quality jobs that pay living wages. Surveys show Norman has a number of people who consider themselves “underemployed.”
