I have been very upset since the flag has been removed at the ball field. It has always been a constant inspiration to many people, both local and those just passing through. I’m sure it was tattered and torn and needed replacing. I can understand that, but come on. There should be enough city officials, community leaders, organizations, and civic minded people of means to see that this is taken care of. To add to the frustration, this is Flag City! The city could surely furnish labor and materials and ask Ritter Communications put up and install the flag. The Chamber of Commerce could provide the appropriate size flag, and anyone else willing to participate in this effort. Memorial Day is upon us. The Fourth of July is coming. Time’s awastin’ — get this job done!
