Another year gone by, another chance to roll out an annual favorite: Our list of New Years resolutions for local celebrities, athletes and politicians who made news in 2014.
In the year ahead, Governor John Kasich would be well-advised to read the literary classic, "the making of the president." the man he defeated, Ed Fitzgerald, should vow to obey mother's golden rule: "nothing good ever happens after midnight."
For Mayor Jackson, a promise to plow all the streets when the snow falls and patch the potholes that pop up like weeds when the snow melts.
In sports, here's hoping the Tribe's Corey Kluber can duplicate his sterling Cy Young season. Lebron and the Cavs deliver that elusive championship. And Johnny Football shows us the money.
For the rest of us how about a pledge to inspire one another? Like Lauren Hill, the Mount St. Joseph basketball player who was determined to play on despite terminal cancer. And Laura Zborowski who gave her own life while saving a 10-year-old girl from a rollaway bus. Thanks to everyone who made life just a little better this past year.
I'm Dominic Mancuso. Here's to a Happy New Year from all of our family here at Channels 19 and 43.
