• The City of Fredericksburg held its first-ever New Year's Eve ball drop and an estimated 300 souls braved the 18-degree temperature to witness the countdown, listen to music and enjoy warm beverages. The Marktplatz event was spearheaded by Kyle Treibs who constructed the ball with his fellow staff members. "It's a good sign this many people showed considering the weather," City Manager Kent Myers said. "We think this will grow into a very special event each New Year's eve." - Standard-Radio Post/Ken Esten Cooke
