Thinking about 2002
TRADITION Making New Year's resolutions is a somewhat whimsical tradition for many Americans and one of the most popular is to lose weight. As the 2001 calendar reaches its final page, local residents shared other more serious thoughts about the year just ended and the year that lies ahead.

When Adrian Cavenaugh thinks about his expectations for the coming year, he said he doesn't want to join the rest of the crowd in hoping for world peace.
But Cavenaugh said he still hopes everyone will learn to work together in 2002.
As 2001 comes to and end, many people around the world will reflect on the tragedies of Sept. 11 and the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington.
Ronny Hampton, a partner at Meyer &Rosenbaum, said the Sept. 11 attacks have put him in a more reflective mood.
Cavenaugh agreed, saying he's proud of how the people of the United States have responded.
One of Cavenaugh's new year's resolutions is to grow his business at Johnson Dodge Kia.
Cavenaugh said he also wants to see his radio ministry grow.
