CANNELTON - "They are quite adamant," Cannelton Mayor Smokey Graves said of American Legion members he'd talked to. "We fly flags, not banners. We celebrate Flag Day, not Banner Day. When we lay someone to rest, we present the family a flag, not a banner."
"We'll come up with the money," he added, bringing common-council members up to date on previous discussions about replacing flags displayed along city streets on special occasions.
