Our View – As We Grow


Its been about three years since The Alexandria Times was first delivered to the doorsteps of the citys residents. Since then, the paper has been published each week with you, the community in mind.

As the paper has grown, we have learned about the community and tried to reflect that in our publication. As we continue to grow, the paper will progress further. But the one thing that has never changed, the one thing that will never change, is our commitment to the community as a whole.

As we welcome a new publisher, so too does The Times welcome new ideas. You may notice some new faces writing for the paper in the coming months. You may notice some familiar faces returning from the past. Any changes that you do notice are made with you in mind, no doubt.

More specifically, you can look forward to a new Web site that will be primed for reader feedback. You can look forward, as we are, to more in-depth coverage of local matters involving everything from social justice to sports.

Whether we are covering a city election, the T.C. basketball team or your dogs puppy litter, we are committed to doing right by you, our readers. Because without your eyes scanning the newsprint once a week to find something of personal importance, our cause would be lost. Things have changed since the newspapers inception, but the one thing that will never change is our commitment to the community news emanating from the place where we live, work and play. 

The great part about being young is that we have room to grow, and The Times is here to stay despite any growing pains we may endure. We are excited to grow taller and wiser, because you will be an integral part of that future. We want to hear honest insight from you (be as mean or as nice as you like) about what you would like to see in your paper.

The community makes the newspaper; the newspaper does not make the community.
