New Year's Eve 2008 ... be safe out there

Stepped-up patrols in Augusta County and throughout the state will help to make it a safer New Year's Eve for many who will be out to celebrate and welcome 2009.

While some will publicly party or celebrate in restaurants and bars, others will gather with friends in homes for quieter celebrations playing board games or watching movies while some will spend the evening with family, sharing dinner and watching the ball drop in Madison Square Garden.

A special New Year thank you to our troops around the world and here at home, and to our homeland security defenders -- emergency personnel on duty tonight and throughout the year -- watching out for our homes, our roadways, and working in hospitals and rescue squads.

Wherever you are and whatever you do ... stay warm, be safe, drive responsibly ... and a very Happy New Year 2009!
