Old Glory or just old?

To the Editor:
Just an observation: Our American Flag and State Flag flying in front of City Hall seem to be turning to dust. Perhaps those city employees making 6 digit salaries could pool some money together and purchase a couple of new flags for our sweet town?
The American flag should be held in the highest of regards. It represents our nation and the many people who gave their lives for our country and our flag. Here are some of the basics on displaying the American flag: The flag is normally flown from sunrise to sunset; The flag should not be flown at night without a light on it; The American flag is always flown at the top of the pole. Your state flag and other flags fly below it; When your flag is old and has seen better days, it is time to retire it. Old flags should be burned or buried. Please do not throw it in the trash.
Did you Know? There is a very special ceremony for retiring the flag by burning it. It is a ceremony everyone should see; our local Boy Scout group should know the proper ceremony and perform it on a regular basis. If you have an old flag, give it to them. And, then, attend the ceremony.
