Confederate flag riased
To cheers and applause, a super-sized Confederate flag went up this morning west of Interstate 75 at U.S. 92. Leaders of the Sons of Confederate Veterans said they hoisted the flag to commemorate Flag Day. Thirty men stood on a concrete slab shortly before 8 a.m., each holding a piece of 100-pound flag.
