Back to business

The holidays are over, people are slowly taking down their decorations, some of us are trying to work off those Christmas "presents" from too many cookies and actually keep a few resolutions.
Next week area municipalities will be reorganizing, and there are quite a few new people taking seats on governmental boards. It will be interesting to see how they feel about running the show after they've been in office a year or two.
It probably will be tough for some -- including Don Lodge of Salford township, who was in office for more than 30 years -- to face evenings without having to head to the municipal building.
Seriously, though, I hope the newcomers are up to the challenges and perhaps will even have a newfound appreciation for the jobs that their predecessors have done.
It's always interesting to see what new leaders will do. I wish them all well. And also hope the public will make more of an effort to become involved in their communities.
