Ground broken on Belleville 9-11 memorial

   BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Ground has been broken for a September 11 memorial in southern Illinois.
   The Belleville News Democrat reports the ceremony was Tuesday in Belleville on city-owned property near a firehouse. The September 11 Memorial Walkway of Southern Illinois will be built. Organizers hope to have the project finished by Sept. 11 of this year.
   The centerpiece of the memorial will be a 7,100-pound steel column from the World Trade Center.
   There also will be a Flight 93 Memorial, a timeline of the terrorist attacks and a memorial in the shape of a pentagon.
   Organizers have raised $80,000 for the project. They hoped to raise $100,000 before breaking ground.

9/11 anniversary to be marked with tributes

   NEW YORK (AP) - Sept. 11 victims' loved ones will gather at ground zero to commemorate the attacks' anniversary with the reading of names, moments of silence and serene music that have become tradition.

   At Wednesday's ceremony on the 9/11 memorial plaza, relatives will recite the names of the nearly 3,000 people who died when hijacked jets crashed into the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon and near Shanksville, Pa.

   The Pentagon and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville also plan name-reading, wreath-laying and other tributes.

   The anniversary is expected to be the last before the Sept. 11 museum opens at ground zero. That's due this spring.

   Changes also are coming at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville. Officials gathered there Tuesday to mark the start of construction on a visitor center.
