Monument to get new flag

Old Glory will fly again over this city's Freedom Flag monument. Robin Williams of R. Lee Williams and Son Funeral Home said he will donate $500 to Pinellas Park officials to replace the 20-by-30-foot flag stolen earlier this week. "This is just another example of how people are incensed by the treatment of our American flag," Mayor Cecil W. Bradbury said. Williams, whose funeral home has lost several flags to vandals, said the money for the flag will come out of the funeral home's bank account. A check will be presented to Bradbury at 5 p.m. today at City Hall. The Freedom Flag is a monument honoring all the branches of military service. It also is the fulfillment of Bradbury's dream to have such a place for people to see and to watch Old Glory fly high over U.S. 19. Bradbury said he is thankful for the donation, but he's still hoping the other flag will be returned.
