Good morning, Andover! Here's your daily rundown of everything happening in town for Wednesday, Feb. 22, courtesy of Andover News.
Rosie (above) and her brother Beans were a big hit at the 2023 Winter Fest Sunday at Pomp's Pond. The dogs are members of the New England St. Bernard Club and pulled children on a sleigh equipped with wheels. There was no winter weather for Sunday's event -- that will come tonight, when Andover could get as much as 8 inches of snow (Dave Copeland photo).

A.M. Briefing

Two things to know today

  1. Andover motor vehicle excise tax bills have been sent out. They need to be paid by March 20.
  2. Andover Bookstore (74 Main Street) is hosting an author event with Evan Longin from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday. Longin is a psychologist and Salem State University professor, as well as author of "The Roots of Evil: A Postmodern Exploration of the Unintended Consequences of Civilization." The book explores evil, not as an entity, but a perspective created by society's power structure.
  • Gabriella Bresnick finished third overall in the State Coaches Girls' Individual Gymnastics Championship at Tewksbury High School Monday. Bresnick posted second-place finishes in the floor exercise and bars. Watch a video of her on the bars.
  • The top-ranked AHS girls' girls basketball team improved to 20-0 and handed 2nd-ranked Medfield (19-1) its first loss of the season with a 55-44 win in the first round of the Comcast Tournament at Woburn High School on Monday.
  • AHS boys' basketball beat Cambridge Rindge & Latin 66-49 in the first round of the Warrior Classic at Dunn Gym Monday. They'll play Wachusett at 6 p.m. tonight.
