Paul McDonnell's 23rd birthday was filled with great personal disappointment as well as great personal revelation. "It was a bad birthday," he said, "because we didn't win . . ."

A major financial agency upgraded the county's credit rating, citing strong economic growth and sound fiscal management, a move that will save the county millions in financing costs.

The bond ratings will help defray costs of major construction projects, including proposed jails, McDonnell said.
