The Craig Daily Press spoke to Moffat County residents on New Year’s Eve Day about their aspirations for 2015.

Ariah Adams, a barista at City Market’s Starbucks, has healthy hopes for 2015.

Adams said she’s trying to eat healthier and stay away from junk food. She started a vegan diet the day after Christmas and wants to keep up the healthy habit in the new year. “It’s been interesting,” she said. “Because it’s not common in a town like this.”

Samantha Bouwens, circulation coordinator for the Craig branch of Moffat County Libraries, said she’s hoping to cook more often and eat at home more. “It’s good for the waistline and the wallet,” Bouwens said.

Craig Mayor Terry Carwile said his resolution is to get ready for another multi-day bike tour.

Steve and DeeDee Ghirardelli don’t take New Year’s Eve resolutions too seriously. “Eat more sugar, gluten and white flour,” DeeDee said jokingly.

Carol Wright, owner of Craig’s Health Works store, said she’s had lots of customers make resolutions, mostly relating to their own health. “People are thinking about themselves, asking, ‘How can I make myself better?'” Wright said. She said she hasn’t made any resolutions so far because her mind is occupied by a two-week trip to Chile with her brother, Daniel.

Dennis Falloon’s resolution is simple. “Survive tonight and be here tomorrow,” he said.

Alex Samuelson and Dominique Hinkoe have the same resolution: to hit the gym more and be healthier.

Kevin Montgomery hopes his wife, Alaine’s, resolution comes true. It’s “not to get hurt,” she said, half-laughing. Alaine broke her wrist the Sunday before New Year’s and recently recovered from an ACL tear.
