+4Virginia prepares for the visit from Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, which includes a state lottery to pick 54 people and their guests for a "VIP walkabout" with the queen. 7-Eleven lottery lines have never seemed so regal.



0Former Gov. Jim Gilmore hops on the Internet to announce his candidacy for president, saying that Webcasts will be a big part of his campaign. And let us be the first to welcome Gilmore to 2004!



-5Echo effects of the Virginia Tech tragedy include a bomb threat at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College and a note warning of a shooting at Amelia County High School. Remember when your biggest fear at school was the playground bully?



-3Mayor Wilder tells about 60 city employees they must reapply for their jobs, stirring up a storm and revealing the ongoing power struggles at City Hall. Take heart: Wilder must reapply for his own job next year.



+2Have a car? Now you can park it at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts' new $14 million, 600-car parking deck, part of the museum's $113.2 million expansion. For an extra fee, you can park right next to a Fabergé egg.
