Alexandria Area High School is taking reservations for its Carolers, a group of high school students who sing Christmas songs while wearing top hats for the boys and muffs and capes for the girls.

Because of what the high school says are "generous gifts of the community," the Carolers sing free of charge. Their performances are limited to 20 minutes.

To have them sing at an event, contact choir director Colt Lien at 320-763-2142, ext. 4601, or

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
