Here’s a photo that shows how the “dog days” of summer are here. Gary and Sonja Lien took it at their farm near Carlos. “We just filled the bird bath,” said Gary. If you have a submission for “Photo of the Week,” e-mail it to or drop it off at the Echo Press office at 225 7th Avenue East, Alexandria. Remember to include when and where the photo was taken.
