David Otten: Make a different kind of resolution this new year
Happy New Year from Faith Lutheran Church in Eldorado. New Year's resolutions have been a tradition as long as I can remember. Many of them involve some type of self-improvement, such as losing weight, reducing credit card debt, or stopping smoking. All good resolutions, though it seems that keeping them is the biggest challenge.

Elizabeth Woodworth: Time to unlace the shoes and take off the jingle bells
Do your winter pruning under this week's dark of the moon. With the new moon on the 5th, the weather of Deep Winter should definitely turn cruel. Epiphany, Three Kings Day, is usually celebrated on or near the 6th. Plough Monday, on the 7th, is a traditional day for the beginning of the farm and garden year. Lunar apogee, the Moon's position farthest from Earth, on the 8th, should soften the Jan. 10 cold front, providing some relief from New Moon cold. In Ophiuchus, between Libra and Scorpio, Jupiter and Venus are the morning stars in January, rising before dawn from the West. Venus is the brighter of the two. Saturn follows close behind in Sagittarius. Mars begins the year as an evening star in the southwest with Pisces and Aries. At night when Orion lies in the center of the southern sky, the Milky Way stretches from the northwest through Perseus and into the southeast. From the far eastern horizon, the spring planting star, Regulus, is rising, and in the northwest, the pointers of the Big Dipper are aligned east-west.
