A week after the September 11th attacks, the city of Roanoke decided to change the star from white to red, white, and blue.
Originally the plan was to keep it that way for only 30 days.
But eight months later, the star is still shining red, white, and blue and the city says for now it will remain those colors.

Busy waters can be dangerous and safety officials say inexperienced drivers on the lake cause the most problems. Officials say it's important to always wear a life jacket and keep plenty of extras on board... Maintain safe speeds and always leave enough room between boats when stopping. They also say it's a good idea to use large coves when water-skiing or tubing instead of busy channels.
