Welcome January 2023, a fresh start and fresh horizons for most folks. January is named for the Roman god Janus, who is, among other things, the god of beginnings and endings. Known for having two faces, one that looks back and the other forward, his legend suits the time of year in which we find ourselves. The Orono Weekly Times sought out some local residents, to ask them to reflect on 2022 and look ahead to the coming year. We thank them for their participation.
