  • All I want for Christmas is ...

    This time last year, all I wanted for Christmas was to keep everyone and everything I have. I don’t think Santa heard me or maybe he misunderstood, because we lost my cousin Lisa and one of my best friends died last month. Perhaps I should have been clearer, too. I’d have been very happy to lose some pounds; I guess I didn’t really want to keep everything. Even so, it all makes me even more grateful for who and what I still have in my life.

    Economists receive much attention at the beginning of a new year. Understandably, people want some insight into how the economy will perform.

  • 'Twas the week of Christmas in Brunswick County

    ‘Twas the week of Christmas, and all through Brunswick County, people were wishing for a bountiful bounty.

     

    Not necessarily in material goods, just peace and so forth, and maybe a little snow, except for those who came here from up North.

     

    The yuletide trees had sold out at local lots, and folks shopped local stores until they nearly dropped.

     

    The stores were full, and their shelves were cleaned, of every holiday goody and everything in between.

  • Baby, it’s cold outside

     Many of us who live in Brunswick County are from the north. We’re from New Jersey, New York, Wisconsin, Ohio, New England, even Minnesota.

    Historically, the average temperature in this area in January is a high of 55 and a low of 34. Chicago, on the other hand, has an average daily temperature of 31 (January) and New York has an average daily temperature of 39 for the same month.
