Editor’s note: street numbers listed below indicate the block on which the incident happened and are not the actual addresses.
Standing there so tall it rises above the building’s roofline, few may take notice that the Ed & Hazel Richmond Public Library at 110 N. Lamont St., across the street from City Hall, has no United States or Texas flags waving from the top of its flagpole. Library Director Lillian Villarreal in July acknowledged for the Progress there hasn’t been one in all the years she’s been there, and a coworker revealed the pole has been barren for almost 20 years. No one has expressed any complaints, or dismay that the newspaper has recorded. It just seemed odd, and disappointing, that a major municipal asset doesn’t fly the colors of our country or the Lone Star state. Villarreal admitted something should be done about it, though it hasn’t happened yet. The cord that would be used to raise or lower any flag on the pole is missing, too. October 3rd, almost three months since it was checked, the Stars and Stripes still isn’t waving here, Villarreal indicating the City Manager, Gary Edwards, was working on addressing the issue.

Heavy rains have helped diminish the threat, though the Aransas Pass Fire Department and the Texas A&M Forest Service remind citizens the local wildfire threat is now categorized a ‘moderate’ as we enter the second week of October. A burn ban that had been in effect in San Patricio County as of August 7th has since expired.
