To the editor:
I’d like to express appreciation to Tom Hatmaker, LaFollette Tree Service for his help. This past week he removed and replaced a damaged and badly soiled U.S. flag at the Shell service station on the four-lane in Jacksboro, just west of LaFollette’s city limits. For some time the flag had been dangling by a single connection on a really tall flag pole in front of the station. In a recent conversation with the business owners, they remarked that they had no idea of who to contact to remove the flag.
I contacted Tom, explained the problem and asked if he would help. His immediate reply was, “Sure, just have them call me when they’ve got a new flag and I’ll stop by, take down the old one and put up a new one.”
I’m happy to say the new one is now in place.
