Carrollton Free Press Standard Letters to the Editor | Frank Leghart

Full story: Carrollton Free Press Standard

To the Editor: On Aug. 24 I ordered the flag on the square, the safety building and the municipal building lowered to half-staff to honor a fallen decorated military veteran and our former police chief, William Raymond McAfee.

You have once again shown you have no backbone and will not stand up for any decision you make. I have lost all respect for you. Maybe you should have read a few other sites that state the rules for flag etiquette are very vague and leave many open loopholes. Shame on you Frank. I will never vote for you ever again. You are a disgrace to the office of mayor and the American flag.

Don't sweat it Frank, far as I'm concerned it is no big deal. Ray M. deserved the honor. Those that don't get that are too stupid to vote for you anyway.

The courthouse lowered the flag to honor a fallen retiered officer of the law. What does this hurt?

I don't recall in my military manual on our flag protocol that allows municipalities to lower the colors for local dignitaries and others. The people that don't get it are the same ones who don't see the value in following rules. Sure it may seem petty to complain and it may not hurt anything but ignoring the small rules can lead to larger ones until rules and laws are irrelevant and chaos follows. Those who don't get it have no respect for the rule of law no matter how small it may be, Puff.

Poor Randy, home alone with your thoughts again. I can see you now, screaming into and then biting your pillow, because now you have the opportunity yet again to be the voice of the immoral majority and commander of the local P.C. Police. Let's us pray that you are immune to mistakes.

Lowering the flag was nice but honoring these people could have been done another way and everyone would have been happy.

Those who judge me "disagree" about not finding allowing lowering the flag for local personnel in the Army Regulation, where did you find it?

Randy, thats your friend AHA or HaHa..whatever his name is. He has several different handles so he can give you a whole lot of bad judges. Personally, I think one judgement per computer (IP address) should be the rule, but I dont manage Topix. Dont worry about the judging. If that person knew he was right, he would have provided proof. JMHO.

I agree with Carroll County. A Retired Officer has fallen. What is the harm to lower the flag.

What's the harm, none really. So why not do it for everyone, what's the harm? Eventually it will mean nothing. What's the harm?

You know what WOW...at least Frank is an honest man and can say he is sorry if anyones was offened. Not very many people can actually do what he just did. I personaly think someone had to make a big complaint for him to put something in the paper. Wow..we all make mistakes...but you on the other hand...must have a clean closet???

A mistake is when someone doesn't know, this wasn't a mistake, he knew better.
