To the editor:
I’m making my mother proud by writing this letter because the subject is one of her pet peeves!
Today, I drove my son to South Junior High. As I was leaving, I looked up on the flagpole, and the United States flag was shredded and barely hanging on. The Kansas flag below it was barely recognizable. I know times are tough, but please can’t we get these flags replaced?
I also know that these flags are flown 24/7/365. Isn’t it flag etiquette to illuminate them when this is done? I’m pretty sure there is plenty of electrical line out there, or, if not, can’t they assign students to lower the flag. I think there are one or two Boy Scouts that know and can teach how it’s done!
