Raising for a new flag

ALPENA - The Alpena County Veterans Council is in the process of raising money to replace one of the large flags that flies over the harbor in Alpena. Last year the city decided to move forward with displaying a smaller 20-by-38-foot flag over the 30-by-50-foot giant that has graced the shoreline for years. The move was due to the amount of abuse the flags take and the cost to repair them when they become torn. The city has an inventory of flags, but because they have been altered so many times, the life of some of them is short.
