This New Year, what’s on your list of self-improvement?

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

On Calhoun Street in Old Town Bluffton, we asked: “What is something you want to do better, do differently, or learn in the New Year?”

Laura Reilley, Hilton Head Island: “I would learn to spend more time with my family.”

Maggie Vreeland, Bluffton: “I would be more resourceful with trash, recycling and stuff. Reuse more stuff.”

Angie Harting, Bluffton: “I would be more grateful for every day.”











Jennifer Sorensen, Charlotte, N.C.: “I would slow down in life.”

Cynthia DeLay, Davidson, N.C.: “I would get more of my first serves in, and have more patience with my mom.”
