Year out, year in: Hello, 2014
We asked people in Colusa County what 2013 meant to them and the community, and what they were looking forward to in 2014:
Sparkle Williams, 24, Colusa
2013: It was a learning experience. It was a learning year for me. I learned how to live life as far as being an adult. Taking things as they come. You have to grow up and live life. ... Learning to stand on my own two feet.
2014: I'm looking forward to putting my learning to use -- putting action what I have learned as far as moving out, and not depending on my mom so much.
Hanif Khan, 42, Yuba City
2013: It was kind of slow. My last job was truck driving, and now I came to the Dollar General Store. It was too expensive to drive trucks, so that's why I tried to start working as a cashier.
2014: Maybe in March I'm going to think about going back into trucking, otherwise I'm going to stay here. My New Year's resolution is to make a little more money. I'm planning on spending New Year's with my family, watching the ball drop.
Emily Mobley, 18, Colusa/Loomis
2013: A year of changes I would say. Mostly because I had to make the transition to a new town, new school, new home and new friends (Mobley is a freshman at Sierra Junior College). The new school and new friends combined were the hardest for me. K- 12, I had the same friends. I also didn't know any of the teachers. I did get straight As this semester.
2014: I'm looking forward to joining Sierra College's volleyball team, and hopefully moving out on my own.
David Armocido, 62, Montana — He is a former Egling Middle School teacher
2013: It was a great year. It was a good year for me personally. We were able to sell our house in Colusa and able to enjoy Montana and do the things we love to do. It was fun making new friends, and fun discovering new waters.
2014: Hopefully, we maintain our good health and continue to have good fishing and the opportunity to have friends come out to visit us, so we're able to share where we live.
