More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.
As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in Land O' Lakes to make it an even better place to live?
We recently asked our Facebook fans if there was anything they would like to see improve in the coming year:
"Yes, an officer at each of the elementary schools when the kids come back and some fencing and high tech maybe fingerprint sign in. Gates look outs!" -Wendy Seth
"What (Seth) said!" - Amy Nicole
"Pay raise for teachers and police officers." -Sara Law Bailey
And in a recent post, we highlighted the thoughts of a Patch reader, who said State Road 54 and U.S. 41 concern him greatly, as "the most dangerous roads in the Land O' Lakes area."
Other readers responded by pointing out the prevalence of speeders, tailgaters and generally discourteous drivers.
"We all need to learn to be better drivers. Get off the phone, and watch the road!," Lorraine Stevenski wrote.
Are these concerns on your list for improvements? What is one thing you would improve in 2013?
