What a tough day for local law enforcement on Tuesday. Taylorsville Police, The Alexander County Sheriffs Office, County Emergency Services, and agencies from the area all toiled in the heat searching for a fugitive. They got their man and nobody got hurt ! Good Work and Thanks, we have enough local crime without having to deal with a interloper. If he ever gets out of prison, I suspect he won’t put Alexander County in his travel plans…Good For Us !
We’ve gone two days in a row without hitting 90 degrees…Hey, 89 is not 90 !
