  • MARTIN: Finding time for a healthier taco night

    Iused to think that New Year’s resolutions were silly, a weak-minded way to make myself change.

    If I wanted to change during the year, I’d just do it.

    And in my younger years, I would. It was easy, I’d just implement whatever change I needed to make.

    More exercise – no problem. I’ll start running today and hit the gym tomorrow.

    Read more – check. I’ll just set aside an hour each day to devote to my newest book.

  • MY WORD: The decline of the youth vote

    Throughout the country young people are staying at home on Election Day.  It is a problem everywhere and it is a problem that I have tried to rectify here locally to no success.  
    Through both of my campaigns in 2010 and 2014 I have reached out to young voters and have failed miserably to get them to the polls.
