land him in court
Cris Dobb's blood runs red, white and blue
and as a Hillsboro firefighter and former Navy foreman, he wants to display
his patriotism, all waving 25 feet of it in his front yard.
September 13, 2002
In the wake of September 11th, there has
been a surge of patriotism, particularly in the form of people displaying
flags in car windows, on their homes and in their front yards; however,
one Hillsboro man's flag fight may land him in court.
Outside the Jones Farm subdivision, a tall
flag pole with Old Glory hoisted to the top can be seen from a distance.
According to the Homeowners Association
Guidlines, no flag pole in excess of 6 feet in height may be permanently
installed anywhere outside a living unit or any lot.
It's the word "permanently" that is in
dispute. Dobbs argues the pole is actually temporary and removeable.
