“Work less, play more. Take more time for myself. As far as what that looks like, I want to make the Top 25 of the Village Smithy patrons. That’s a goal, not a resolution.”

“I always try to have a practical [resolution] and one for personal growth. The practical one is what I want: getting back into my running and training for marathons again. Whereas for self growth, I want to practice patience — those kind of go hand-in-hand, I guess.”

“Let social media influence me less — stay off the political stuff because it just hurts. Other than that, I’m going to try to make some changes to the brewery, to bring more of our touch into the [Carbondale Beer Works].”

“My personal resolution is to strengthen my mindful meditation practice. As far as the town is concerned, I feel 2017 was another fantastic year. In 2018, I look forward to our staff and our community thriving.”

– Dan Richardson

“To be honest, I actually want to lose more weight and just be the kind of person I can be. My favorite part about 2017 was to be with my family and to be able to say, ‘this is what we’re doing.’ 2018, I’m looking forward to just being with some friends and having a great time.”
