LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) – On Tuesday afternoon an American hero was recognized by Congressman Jodey Arrington for his leadership and sacrifice during World War II.

Levelland veteran Jimmy Price, a retired Army Sergeant, will soon turn 99. To honor him Arrington presented Price with an American flag recently flown over the U.S. Capitol building, a certificate, a firm handshake, and an even stronger thank you message.

“He’s a hero who was served with distinction and with honor and helped preserve this great experiment in liberty and democracy that we enjoy today,” Arrington said outside of Price’s home where the small gathering took place.

“I think this flag means as much to you as anything in the world,” Arrington told Price as he sat next to him.

“He set a good example to our family… to our kids… to our grand kids because he works hard. He always has his whole life. He can outwork any of us… even in his 80s and 90s, he could outdo us out in the field or in anything,” said Glenda Gibson, one of Price’s six kids, and one of Price’s four kids at the ceremony today.

Gibson says Price has always been a man of few words, especially when it comes to talking about his military career, but he always knew he had a duty to fulfill.

“It sure is nice to have some of these old-timers left…even if they don’t say much, just to look at them and shake their hand, because it’s not what they say, that matters… it’s what they did that matters,” said Arrington.

 

Arrington added that the country could benefit from more people like Price and veterans. “Their patriotism… their love for family and community… their commitment to service was unparalleled in the history of this country. We need that. Those are the values… that’s the characters of this country and the traditional values of this country that we so desperately need.”

Price will turn 99 next month.

Man fights to keep 60- ft flagpole

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – Charleston City Council is considering whether it will allow a homeowner to keep a 60-foot flagpole in his back yard.

David Abdo put up the flagpole last year in the yard of his home in West Ashley without a permit.

City officials said nothing can be constructed in that neighborhood that exceeds 35 feet in height, according to zoning rules.

“We had to take some sort of action to notify the owner to say,’You violated the ordinance and you have to remove the flagpole,’” City of Charleston Zoning Administrator Lee Batchelder said.

However, Abdo’s attorney is arguing the flagpole should be allowed because it is a monument, so zoning rules should not apply.

Abdo also claims Batchelder told him he did not need a permit to install the flagpole.

“[Batchelder] advised that there was no height restriction for a flagpole and the city did not issue permits for flagpoles,” Abdo said in a statement for the Board of Zoning Appeals. “I erected the monument because I was told by the city that no permit was required and that no height restriction applied.”

Officials with the City of Charleston said they have received a few complaints about the flagpole from neighbors.

“This exceptionally tall commercial flagpole does not fit the character of our residential neighborhood,” one neighbor wrote in an email to the city. “Besides its excessive height and negative visual impact, the extra large flag flapping in the breeze and halyard banging against the metal pole are audible problems as well.”

Batchelder said the board previously voted to deny Abdo’s appeal because they were worried it would set a dangerous precedent.

“If this is exempt, then what’s to stop somebody from building something even taller or larger,” Batchelder said. “At some point, there has to be a limit.”

If the board votes to deny the appeal, the homeowner can appeal again by taking legal action in a circuit court.

Types of Solar Flagpole Lighting

iojzgzg.jpgWhen you go solar for your flagpole lighting, it helps you save some money and even provide you with a wide range of advantages.  There are two major types of solar lighting options for your flagpole which are:

Outdoor solar lighting:

This is a type of solar flagpole lighting mounted on the pole and lightens up the flagpole and the flag itself from an upward and downward position, depending on the kind of selected unit.

This is a perfect option for people who don’t want to install anything at the base of the flagpole. Usually, the lights are attached in the middle of the pole for upward lighting and the outdoor solar is place at the top of the pole for downward lighting.

These solar lights are built with intensity LED lamps.

Above-ground solar:

This is installed at the base of the flagpole and the lights provide additional security. This method of flagpole lighting does not require any form of wiring and majorly for residential flagpoles only.

Before choosing the type of solar light to go for, there are things to consider which are-

Budget: solar landscape lights are not only environmentally friendly but also cost effective.

Location: solar lights won’t work effectively if the flag and flagpoles are situated in shaded areas where there won’t be direct sunlight to charge up the solar system.

Environment: when considering going for a solar flagpole lighting, the availability of sunlight in the environment is a major factor to consider because if there isn’t enough sunlight in that area or location, buying solar lights for your flagpole could turn out to be a waste of money.

Installation: there is no need for any electrician to come set it up for you. The installation process is quite easy once the steps are properly followed.

Keep in mind that it is best to keep the lights halfway on the flagpole so as to avoid unnecessary tampering with light and to also provide sufficient illumination.
