One part of closing down 2013 in preparation for the fresh starts of the new year is looking back on all that has happened in the last 12 months and trying to sum it up. We've done that in a number of ways. Next week we'll assess the community's progress on six key issues we identified in January - and we'll set new goals for 2014.
We want to hear from you. What do you see as the most important issues for the community in 2014? What should be the New Year's resolutions for the city of Wausau or another municipality, for Marathon or Lincoln counties, for Wisconsin? What about for you personally?
What about for the Daily Herald? Are there key issues you want to see us follow in the new year?
Sure, it's just the flip of a calendar page. But it's a good time to take stock of what is working and what needs to change. And we'd love to include your perspective.
Tell us the goals and ambitions and resolutions or communities, leaders and lawmakers should be making for 2014. We'll publish readers' perspectives as part of a New Year's special feature. Just email your perspective to email@example.com.
