Happy New Year! We are now more than one-tenth of the way through the twenty-first century! What lies ahead? Only time will tell. As we wrote our last column, the weather was frigid, and winter had not officially arrived! As we type this column, the weather is a balmy 70 degrees. No wonder sniffles and sneezes are rampant. Well, our neighbors in Rodgers Forge and Gaywood have been busy with lots of pre-Christmas festivities - Santa visits, door decorating contests and the Gaywood Glow.

As President Obama greets the new year amid the balmy breezes of Hawaii, he must brace himself for the stiff winds that await him back here in the nation's dysfunctional capital. Desperate to accentuate the positive, his political strategists back on the mainland have heralded the news that more than a million Americans have signed up for insurance through federal and state exchanges under the auspices of his troubled Affordable Care Act, far short of earlier expectations that 3 million would have done so by now. Dampening down administration pleasure that a budget compromise was reached through the rare bipartisan teamwork of Republican Paul Ryan in the House and Democrat Patty Murray in the Senate, the opposition party has renewed and sustained its pushback against Obamacare.

A 10-year-old girl is in critical condition on life support after being struck in the head on Tuesday in what Cecil County Police say appears to be from a bullet fired in the air during New Year's Eve celebrations. Cecil County Sheriff's Office Lt. Michael Holmes said on Wednesday that the girl, a resident of Manheim, Pa., was standing in the yard of a home in the unit block of Ajs Court in Elkton and watching neighbors set off fireworks when she suddenly collapsed. Holmes said that a call came in from 911 that someone had observed trauma at the top of the girl's head.

The following New Year editorial appeared on The Sun's editorial page Dec. 30, 1899. ALL of our divisions of time, though having some relation to the progress of the seasons and to the birth of Christ, are really more or less artificial. Time is an unending cycle, but man has seen fit to establish certain points in the circle which he designates as stopping and starting places. The year is one of the periods, and on Monday we shall begin a new year of more than usual significance, for it will be the last year of the 19th century.

Like his coach, Dez Wells has a long basketball memory. His personal defeats remain with him like tiny scars. The super-competitive Maryland junior swingman entered Tuesday's game against North Carolina Central with the nagging memory of Eagles guard Jeremy Ingram scoring 30 or so points on him in a high school tournament in their home state of North Carolina. Four years later, Wells used the recollection as motivation in helping hold Ingram - the nation's third-leading scorer - to 11 points on 4-for-19 shooting in Maryland's 70-56 victory before an announced 9,554 at Comcast Center.
