Confederate flag

A town hall meeting Saturday, March 23, at the American Legion Post 49 on Green Avenue was intended by organizers to be a meeting presenting both sides of the controversy over a proposed memorial that would display more than 20 Confederate flags including the infamous battle flag and would be visible from Interstate 10. It turned into a very one-sided affair, however, when no one from the organization Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) showed up to speak their piece.
