  • A new year brings new resolutions and this year is no exception.
    Village of Herkimer residents on Monday were busy getting the resolutions for 2013 ready.
    “New year’s is only one day a way and this year my goal is to quit smoking,” said Jim Marosek. “It’s going to be tough, but that’s the big one.” Marosek also said he plans to be more active in 2013.
    Twelve-year-old Emily Murphy and 10-year-old Allison Murphy said their goal for the new year is to get better grades in school. Not only did the two have their new year’s resolutions set, but they said they planned to celebrate the arrival of the new year with friends and family.
    Young or old everyone has a new year’s resolution, including postal workers.
    Steve Barretta, a mail carrier or the Herkimer Post Office, said his resolution is similar to many others. “I really want to eat healthier so I’m going to pay better attention to what I eat,” he said.
    Carolyn Canarie said she plans to have a positive new year.
    “I just want to have even more fun this year,” she said.
    Canarie added she planned on starting the year right by snowshoeing on New Year’s Eve.
    Herkimer County Community College senior Tess Sagatis said her goal for the new year is to stay focused on her career. Sagatis is studying law and is in her last year at HCCC. “Once I graduate this spring I want to transfer to Oneonta and then continue on to Albany for law school,” she said.
    While some have resolutions that keep them busy, others just want to take a few minutes to relax.
    “With all this snowfall lately all I’ve been doing is shoveling sidewalks, driveways and even clearing icicles off of roofs to keep everyone safe, said Chris Schultz. “My new year’s resolution is to stop working and really take some time to relax.”
