Lexington Mayor Jim Gray held up a sackful of change, saved by Lilli Chamblen, as he delivered his 2013 State of the Merged Government address during a noontime meeting of the Lexington Forum held in the Patterson Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Lexington, Ky., Tuesday, January 22, 2013. The change came from a young girl, Lilli Chamblen, who sent him the money to help with the Town Branch project. The mayor's annual address represents the condition of city government: "where we have been, where we are going," Gray said during an earlier press briefing. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
