3 things about today: Patriotism, park clean up and prices of gas

Ahead of Memorial Day members of local veterans groups got together to replace the American Flag flying outside The Argus Observer, which had become tattered, as part of their service to the community. For Flag Day, on Friday, The Argus and local veteran groups urge you to be certain your flag is not in disrepair.

  1. There are less than 24 hours to make sure your U.S. flags are in tip-top shape for displaying on Flag Day, Friday. If you’re displaying Old Glory, you can learn more about proper etiquette for the American Flag at http://www.usflag.org/uscode36.html. Some things to avoid include tattered edges and faded colors.
  2. Speaking of Flag Day, each year, the Drexel H. Foundation in Vale hosts a two-part community service project that both beautifies playground equipment at a local park and offers up an art contest. The event is from 9 a.m. to noon at Wadleigh Park in Vale on Friday.
  3. Crude oil barrel prices hiked this morning after two oil tankers were attacked near the Strait of Hormuz. Iran is being blamed for the attack, according to a report by CBS News. One was on fire and drifting the report said, and sailors have been evacuated from both vessels. In an email this morning, Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis, wrote that although oil prices have hiked 3-4% so far this morning, it is highly unlikely to impact gas prices at this point.
