The Democrat asked - ‘What is your New Year’s resolution?'

Live Oak — "I don’t want to spend the money like I’ve been spending it. I’m spending more money than I need to. I want to see how much I can save.”

- Cynthia Creech

“Not to have a New Year’s resolution. You can make empty promises each day. Just make reasonable goals for yourself.”

- Cristi Prevatt

“Drive safely and good health.”

- Frank Smith

“No, I don’t have one. I like my skin the way it is. I like the way that I am. I’ve found that resolutions are too easily broken.”

- Janice Shannon

“Quit eating too much. Going on a diet.”

- Billy Brantley
