The Year Ahead

January 10, 2014

For the past forty-nine years our contributor Agnes Mörlein has offered her predictions for the coming year. She has amazed and astounded us with her predictions, including foretelling the election of President Ronald Reagan. Even though this prediction was made in 1997 it still astounded us, as did her prediction that his running mate would be none other than Mickey Rooney. This will be her final year, since she is retiring. We are pleased to present her final list of predictions, and hope that her retirement will be as pleasant as she’s foreseen. Enjoy Key West, Agnes!
