Alpena County Clerk Bonnie Friedrichs places a sticker on the winning photo from a recent contest held by her office. The office accepted photos featuring Alpena’s Avenue of Flags, which will be used on the cover of the new county directory to be released in the coming weeks. The winner was Dave Elder, who submitted a photo of the flags at Duck Park, with the wooden water tower adjacent to them. An award ceremony will be held Monday, where state Rep. Sue Allor, R-Wolverine, will present Elder a flag that was flown over the state Capitol.
