Once the game finally got going, No. 13 Danville had little trouble in beating Garrard County and advancing to the 45th Distict Tournament final at Stanford. Dowell Harmon was 3 for 3 with two doubles and five RBIs and Rhodes Bell added a three-run home run as the Admirals blasted Garrard 19-2 in five innings at Lincoln County. There were three lighting delays before the game even started, then another. The other semifinal between Boyle County and Lincoln County was postponed until 6 p.m. today.

As spring has arrived and April was the wettest month on record, we hear that old adage, “April showers bring May flowers.” But all the pretty flowers now make us appreciate spring and the warmer weather. I have noticed that they are working some on the shopping center across from the post office, and that is a start to what it has been. New businesses there will create more jobs for the unemployed. Why don’t they go across the street and do something to the old Southern Belle Dairy building?

I would like to express my opinion on the so called “night club” coming to Danville. Ever since liquor came to Danville, it is one thing after another. There is a liquor store on every corner. Before, I really liked Danville. It is really a bad town to live in now. I hope to move. I've been here since 1972 but hate it now. Bertha Williams Danville

Cheddar's corporate board approved Danville for a restaurant location last week, a major hurdle in the process of bringing the restaurant to the area, according to Danville/Boyle County Economic Development Communications Coordinator Charlie Cox. Cox said rumors have been spreading that Cheddar's is no longer planning to locate in Danville, but the rumors are false. EDP President/CEO Jody Lassiter will meet next week with Cheddar's representatives and local officials to discuss the project's progress and issues related to the targeted site, Cox said.

Dear Editor, Thank you, Danville voters. We did good. 2011 will be a great year in Danville. We will have a dignified commission, better fiscal management, and one that represents all the residents equally and fairly. A word to the losers, all of them: Next time you have a good job, listen to the people you work for. Irvine Jones Danville

I recently attended a number of public meetings where city of Danville staff members presented budget and operations reports. Through the use of charts and graphs, the head of each department gave detailed accountings of past budgets, allocations and expenditures as well as recommendations for proposed budgets. In several incidents, alternative methods of providing services were provided to determine the most economical choices. Throughout the reports, I was impressed with the knowledge, practicality and professionalism of all city employees who spoke.

Remember when Mr. Coomer was mayor and the City Commission had everything going their way? Every thing was hunky-dorey with the mayor having so much criticism, and upon frivolous ethical charges they tried to have him fined or fired. Isn't it about time the City Commission quit bickering with the present mayor and do the job they were voted into office to do? The public at large, including myself, are getting a laugh at the “Harper Valley P.T.A.” in Danville and the ongoing soap opera on a daily basis.

Danville police and state Alcoholic Beverage Control officials raided the Gator Club early Saturday morning. Danville Police Chief Tony Gray said some members of the private club are suspected of “bootlegging” liquor. The club, located at 725 South Second St., does not have a license to sell any type of alcoholic beverages, Gray said. Law enforcement seized items “consistent with the findings of the current investigation.” Gray declined to discuss the items seized.

A company with a manufacturing facility in Danville will be acquired by a European private equity firm, but the current management team said the move could be good news in the long run. Intelligrated, based in Mason, Ohio, announced Friday an agreement has been reached with Permira for more than $500 million. In a press release, the company said Intelligrated founders, Chris Cole, the chief executive officer, and Jim McCarthy, president and chief operating officer, will maintain a “significant stake” in the company and continue in their leadership roles.
