Christopher Trela and Stasha Surdyke recall their 2011 dining experiences here and offer suggestions for New Year’s dining this weekend here. Cindy Trane Christeson relates a resolution to love better here and Lynn Selich ponders end-times predictions here, while Jill Fales has a resolution for moms here. And Capt. Mike Whitehead takes us on a voyage through the past and into the future here.
