Danville mural well underway

One thing that’s got everyone in Danville excited is the new mural going up near Mill Street.

It’s being put up right now, with detail work to continue, it looks like.

I can’t wait to see it complete

It’s a history based mural, which I like because Danville does have a rich history.

Here’s a big picture, in two parts:

Reader Photos: animals and children beating the heat!

I say this every time i post Reader Photos, but I really am so impressed with the photos we receive each week from readers and post in our photo galleries.

This week, the theme seems to be animals and children beating  the heat – which luckily has passed us by this week.

This batch also includes my favorite reader photo ever. Check below to see it:

Daily Item Reader Photos, back again

Now that the Prom Perfect contest is over, Daily Item readers have resumed sending in their artistic photos in, depicting life in the Valley in a unique and up-front way.

It’s also almost summertime – which means I’m in the mood to go outside, plant flowers and enjoy the sunshine – though as yesterday’s post reveals, this week hasn’t been the best for that.

Anyway, here’s my favorite recent reader photos, depicting the best of the beginning of sweet summertime:
