A light look back and forward

Isn't that a great cartoon by Ariail up there? I love how Baby New Year's coming in on a drone, taking a selfie as Old Man 2013 looks on incredulously. It's inspiring, even ... at least to someone who needs to write an end-of-the-year column.

Resolutely carrying on

Warning: this column may include warnings

Reality isn’t so ducky

WASHINGTON -- It's Christmas and a strange white-bearded fellow uttering quack-quack-quack has streaked across the continent, dumping a large sack of something on America's hearth.

Christmas morning joy

Christmas morning is a time for family, food and tradition. It's such a beautiful and special occurrence and I love that this year we have a new addition to our Christmas morning tradition -- my adorable, precious and perfect nephew, Harrison.

KershawHealth is story of the year

At the end of past years, I've picked out a person or group of the year, sometimes both. This year, I'm not so much highlighting a group as I am an organization. Really, what I'm doing is recognizing the year's biggest story.
