Love and honor for the flag has never waned for Charlie Burns
“Every time I mow — there’s a really nice flag pole down here, you see — I come up to it and stop and take my hat off, and say an Our Father and a Hail Mary and a Glory Be and a ‘Thank you, Jesus, for a wonderful country we live in, and thank you for the freedom we have,’” Charlie Burns explained. “I put my cap back on and I go on mowing.” Burns mows close to an acre-and-a-half of grass on the out-lots owned by his son. His only stop comes about 25 feet from that flag pole, where the stars and stripes blow freely.

Veterans Day observance at Delano High School
The annual Veterans Day ceremony at Delano High School included a variety of unique elements this year, including a presentation of the Sgt. Dillon Semolina memorial plaque, a donation to the Delano American Legion by Charter Spectrum and HISTORY (The History Channel), and remarks from keynote speaker Sen. Bruce Anderson. Another highlight was recognition of Mackenzie Oswell, Lauren Kantrovich and Hannah Kreisch for winning an essay contest focusing on why it is important to recognize veterans.
