Once again, I am compelled to address the desecration of our flag by those who do not comprehend the meaning of the U.S. flag. Our flag is the symbol of freedom and democracy in this country, and around the world. It epitomizes what our military personnel defend and rally around. It is sacred and must not be desecrated.
Unfortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court in 1989 ruled it is legal to desecrate the flag under the First Amendment of our Constitution’s right of free speech.
The U.S. House of Representatives will consider H. J. Res. 13 shortly, which prohibits the physical desecration of the flag. A parallel resolution, S.J. Res. 19, will go before the U.S. Senate in coming months. Two thirds majority votes in the House and Senate are required to put forward a constitutional amendment for ratification by the states.
Please contact your state representatives and senators and ask them to support these resolutions. Over 1,200,000 U.S. military personnel have died promoting freedom and democracy in the world, and our flag is the symbol that embodies their sacrifices.
We have to rally around the flag.

It has given one a secure feeling to see the effort that has gone in to keeping all of the paint striping current on Highway 90 as the new surfacing has been added. This helps all of the drivers to stay in their lanes and know where the turning lanes are. This has not been easy with the multiple layers of new pavement being added. But it has kept us save and even added a little humor if we take the time to notice. The face painted at the intersection of Hwy 90 and Range indicates the painter had a little extra material and a good attitude to brighten our day.

Those back legs were really working in digging a pit for some purpose on the shore of Lake Francis in downtown Madison. Maybe it is time for bring up another family of the shelled creatures that populate the local waterway. If you find one in this posture please try to not bother the work in progress.
