There wasn't much of a celebration Tuesday night at Millennium Park when Garrard County won its third straight 45th District softball championship. Parents who came onto the field at Millennium Park to take pictures of the trophy presentation joked about the Golden Lions' apparent lack of enthusiasm after their 9-0 win over Boyle County. But that didn't mean they weren't enjoying themselves, and pitcher Jessica Speake said that will also be the approach next week when they defend their 12th Region title.

Though the holiday season has long passed, Danville city commissioners presented their wish lists Tuesday. The requests weren't addressed to Santa Claus, though. Rather, they were directed toward goals in the city's budget for next fiscal year. Among the wishes cited by Commissioner Kevin Caudill were equipment for zoned parking downtown, a cemetery information kiosk, and $25,000 for Danville parks other than Millennium Park based on recommendations to come from a future workshop.
