Signs send mixed messages on population
Editor's note: The following is part of an Echo Press feature, "You Asked." Readers are invited to send the newspaper a simple question and we'll try to get to the bottom of it.
A reader asked: Whatever direction you enter Alexandria, the population number is different on each road. Why is that?
Depending on which road travelers enter, it does appear as if the population changes. Some signs put Alexandria's population at 12,415. Others place it at 10,165.
