Recalling the day Captain Rick Siangco saved two lives
In reading a Dec. 28 story in the Empire about Rick Siangco being honored with a State Medal for Heroism by Gov. Tony Knowles for saving two lives during the 1997 Golden North Salmon Derby, I was vividly reminded of the precarious situation that occurred that August evening. I was one of the lives saved, and my fishing friend Jim Griffin was the other fortunate survivor that Rick plucked from the sea.

Working on your behalf
Every New Year brings reflections, relief and probably a few regrets. Like most everyone else, we at the Empire strive to do our best within the limits of our resources. Also like most everyone else, if we had it all to do over again, we'd like to think we would do better.

Learn to stick with New Year's resolutions that wash out
We all like to think that when we decide something, it's final. But there are always extenuating circumstances. There is always new information you didn't have when you made the decision. How many times have you bought something and found it in a sales flyer for less the next day? We all hate that. But that's how it is with decisions. Things change. And then you're stuck with them.
