YIR- Change they can believe in: Hotseat sitters' to-dos for '09

We asked some of our 2008 Hotseat sitters one more burning question: What are your New Year's resolutions?

Dave Koehn, Play-by-Play Announcer, Virginia Sports Network

"After moving from Vermont to two separate temporary housing units to our permanent residence, my resolution is to never see another moving box again!"

Jerry Stenger, Research Coordinator, UVA Climatology Office

"I need to be better about scooping the litter box."

John Jeffries, Dean Emeritus, UVA School of Law

"It's the same every year. Lose weight. So far, in my retirement, it hasn't gone so well."

Bob McDonnell, Attorney General, Commonwealth of Virginia

"To win the gubernatorial election without a recount."

Ron Matthews, Superintendent, Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail

"To make sure that I am prepared for my next opportunity, whatever that happens to be."

Lindsay Shoop, Olympic Gold Medalist Rower, U.S. Rowing

"I will make more sound resolutions in a week or two, but get back into shape after taking three months to myself after the Olympics, take more time for my reading, organize my writing, and start painting again."
