    It's a local issue to be solved by locals. She only had one US Flag by the way. There is more to ordinance than this lady. Maybe you should become part of the ordinance making in your own community and see the why and wherefore. Do you think she is not using this to promote her business.

    Don,

    9 years on the planning commission in my town, most as vice chair. Got out after I got tired of running peoples lives for them. Moved far out in the country to get away from it.

    Yes code, ordinances, etc. are needed but in todays world they have just gone totally overboard.

    And what exactly is wrong with promoting your business (if in fact this is what she was doing, she says not).
