Dear Readers: Welcome to 2014! We wish each of you health and happiness. We hope this year is better than the last and not as good as the next. Do your best to make this year special. Be kinder. Be more patient. Be more tolerant. Help someone in need. Vow to look after your health, work out more, eat less junk, give up smoking. Turn over that elusive new leaf. Put more effort into your relationships, and tell the people you love how much they mean to you. You don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Let’s start this year off right.

Dear Annie: We always have been encouraged to support our local businesses. However, there seems to be a common trend now in which the clerks often ask for a donation to a local charity at the end of every transaction. I have been solicited at the grocery store, the pet store, the movies, at fast-food restaurants and even the bank.
