Have you seen the wonderful light display at Lexington Fire Department Station #20 yet? Drive by and tune your radio to 91.1 to watch the show.
The station is located at 3001 Arrowhead Dr., off of Harrodsburg Road and across from Beaumont Centre. #sharethelex

Local government payroll information and purchase orders will soon be available on the City’s website.

#LexingtonKy is teaming up with @whatworkscities to essentially put the City's checkbook online. An important part of running government efficiently is transparency. The public has the right to see how their tax dollars are being spent, and we want to make it easier for citizens to track local government personnel expenses and contracts.

Police Chief Mark Barnard and I enjoyed talking with Medal of Honor recipient Don Jenkins at the gubernatorial inauguration. Don served in the Army during the Vietnam War.

This morning I met with local photographer John W. Snell, who brought by a copy of his new book, "Red River Gorge - My Second Home." I guess word has gotten out that I love hiking in the gorge! It really is a special place, and John has the pictures to prove it.

Kicking off the holiday weekend at the Lexington Rescue Mission Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Triangle Park looks good from atop the Christmas Tree! (That's the Unified Trust Company Ice Rink in the background.) Join me and Santa for @downtownlexcorp Luminate Lexington next Friday, Nov 27. The holiday market opens at 2 p.m., with the tree lighting at 6:30 p.m.

Shout out to Lexington residents Martha Griffin and Joey Haynes for donating the tree, KU for transporting it downtown, and @lexkyparks for all the decorations! #sharethelex

Congrats to Ashland, Inc., which broke ground Monday on a new headquarters building for Valvoline. Valvoline has called Lexington home for more than 30 years!

Cool shot of Jonathan Wilson catching some air at the grand opening celebration of the Berry Hill skatepark.
Located in Berry Hill Park at 3489 Buckhorn Drive, the skatepark features a flow bowl, snake run, street section, stairs and rails. #skateboarding #sharethelex @lexkyparks

Congratulations to the men and women who took the oath of office Friday morning as our newest Community Corrections officers. Their job, like all those who work in public safety, is a challenging one.
At the beginning of the graduation ceremony, we held a moment of silence in honor of Richmond Police Officer Daniel Ellis, who was killed in the line of duty, and Jessamine County paramedic John Mackey, who was critically injured yesterday. A reminder that first responders and public safety personnel share a special, common bond in the work they do.

Got a tour of International Paper on Palumbo Drive yesterday. The company makes corrugated boxes for several businesses, including another company that calls Lexington home... Jif peanut butter.

Even with the clouds, @keeneland still absolutely beautiful for @breederscup!

Candy storage room. I'm not authorized to disclose its location, but Fayette Mall will hold its free trick-or-treat event for kids from 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 29.
