Community leaders are just like us when it comes to the new year. Many are making resolutions for 2006, each as unique as the individual.

Cullman Mayor Don Green has made an introspective New Year's resolution.

Green plans to ask himself four questions every day in 2006. What is the best thing that could happen today? What is the worst thing that could happen today? What can I do to make the best thing happen, and what can I do to make sure the worst thing doesn't happen?

"I want to take five minutes each day to think about the future of the community, and I encourage everyone else to do the same," Green said. "They're not biggies, but they can make a difference."

Cullman Police Chief Kenny Culpepper said his first priority in 2006 is to spend time with his family. Professionally, he wants to complete some pending projects, particularly arrangements for mutual assistance with other police and emergency agencies in north Alabama.

County Schools Superintendent Nancy Horton said her resolutions focus on self-improvement.

"I'm going to be more consistent with my exercise," she said. "And I'm going to try to remember to set aside time for my devotionals every day and spend as much time as possible with my family."

City Schools Superintendent Jan Harris said she planned to spend 2006 enjoying a normal routine after a hectic 2005 in which she moved to Cullman.

"My New Year's resolution, personally, is to refine my balance — physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually," Harris said. "This year has been tumultuous with the move and everything, and I'm looking forward to resuming a normal lifestyle and a renewed enthusiasm after a couple weeks' rest."

Wallace State Community College President Vicki Hawsey kept her resolution simple.

"For Wallace State to be better today than it was yesterday," she said.
