((WE LAID OUT A PLAN FOR VIRGINIA'S FUTURE, A PLAN THAT DIDN'T FOCUS ON SOUND BITE SOLUTIONS OR THREE WORD SLOGANS)).
Mark Warner was elected governor, and running mate Tim Kaine, lieutenant governor in November. Republican Jerry Kilgore will be the new attorney general.
They take office, preparing to deal with a huge budget shortfall that threatens the final year of the car tax cut, and forced cultural institutions to slash spending and services.
Coming in at an appropriate spot on our list, at number 3, was the death of the Intimidator. Dale Earnhardt's fatal crash in February in the final lap of NASCAR's signature event stunned racing fans, and left the sport facing questions about driver safety standards.
The dedication of the National D-Day Memorial in June brought hundreds of veterans, and the commander in chief, to the city that lost so many of its sons in so short a time sixty years ago.
[SOT Bush, tape 01-41]

((YOU HAVE RAISED A FITTING MEMORIAL TO D-DAY, AND HAVE PUT IT IN JUST THE RIGHT PLACE.))
By the end of the year, though, financial problems had brought on the resignation of most of the memorial's board members, and a state police review of its books.
And as our top story of 2001, the September 11th terrorist attacks on America.
Among the victims in the plane crash at the Pentagon, a sailor and William Fleming graduate from Roanoke, Donald Young.
Firefighters raised thousands of dollars in memory of their fallen colleagues...
new security procedures appeared at Roanoke's airport.
And those were some of the stories your hometown station brought you in the first year of the 21st century.
