To the people who braved the weather to take part in the party caucuses this week.

Hats off to the Republicans and Democrats who ventured out into less than desired weather conditions on Tuesday to be a part of the caucuses at Southwest Middle School and the Eagles Club.

The caucuses provide the first chance during the election season for people to get involved as delegates and to consider various resolutions to move on to the county and state conventions.

Though there were not any exciting polls at this year’s caucuses, we hope those who attended still recognized the value of being a part of this step of the process.

To reported vehicle break-ins this week.

With nicer weather popping up pretty regularly in the last few weeks, it’s no surprise to see that vehicle break-ins are starting up again.

We remind people to remove valuables from their automobiles, to lock their car doors and to park cars in garages or well-lit areas when an option.

Essentially, removing valuables from your car makes it an unattractive target for potential thieves.

If you see anything questionable near your home or vehicles, report it to authorities.

The Broken Zip Ties robotics team.

Congratulations to the Broken Zip Ties robitics team from Albert Lea High School, who participated in the state Vex Robotics Tournament on Thursday in St. Cloud.

Under the direction of coach Burke Enger, the team has seen much success in recent years. We congratulate them again on a job well done.
