The Lafayette City Council took time Monday evening to honor a young woman who helped save a man from a burning home in Lafayette Aug. 29.


Mayor Carol Federighi and the Lafayette City Council bestowed posthumous honors to Tom Titmus for his 17 years of service on the city's Crime Prevention Commission -- and followed that up with a presentation ceremony for a young woman who distinguished herself during a crisis situation on Moraga Road Aug. 29.

But, proving yet again that she is always prepared, Falconer bested the recalcitrant ribbon with a quick trip to her purse for just the right tool -- and basked in the glow of a revealed sterling silver presentation tray and the applause of an appreciative audience.
