Quick takes


Thumbs up to the St. Stephens / St. Agnes boys and girls lacrosse teams for winning state championships! The SS/SA girls edged Collegiate 13-12 while the boys beat St. Annes-Belfield 10-6. Winning both titles in the same year is quite an accomplishment!

Thumbs up to the 39 Alexandria police officers and fire fighters who were honored at Tuesdays Valor Awards, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. These brave men and women were honored for their extraordinary courage while saving lives, apprehending dangerous criminals and protecting the public. Firefighter Doug Townshend received the Gold Medal, the highest honor. Well done!

Thumbs down to the vandals who have been stealing potted plants from houses around Alexandria. Whether the work of juvenile pranksters or repeat criminals, this vandalism needs to stop. When something is stolen from your home, even something seemingly small like a plant or a package from a doorstep, it is unsettling. Perpetrators: do you really want to go to jail over a plant?
