Flags were at half-staff yesterday almost everywhere … when leaving Hinkle’ last night, we noticed the flag next to the bus stop near the municipal parking lot was not. POTUS ordered “the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff … until sunset, October 6, 2017.”
Columbia letter-to-the-editor writer among lots of other opinions shared (Disagreements with Trump) in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.
This ad has been appearing in the tiny classified, legal notices in LNP – Always Lancaster. The ad is looking for people who worked at Armstrong in the 70s, 80s and early 90s to build a case for asbestos; “Sherry L. Day has been assisting attorneys in the investigation and litigation of asbestos cases for over 25 years.”
“According to the International Agency on Research for Cancer, there is sufficient evidence that asbestos causes mesothelioma (a relatively rare cancer of the thin membranes that line the chest and abdomen), and cancers of the lung, larynx, and ovary. Although rare, mesothelioma is the most common form of cancer associated with asbestos exposure.”
We, too, were in the line at Hinkle’s last evening. Too strange having to wait in line on a Wednesday for dinner after years of no “wait” lines. But it was great seeing so many new faces – faces we’ve not seen before patronizing the “soon to disappear” Hinkle’s. Our server told us she’d been really busy all day long with barely any time to take a break. (NOTE: The graphic above appears at a local facebook page.)
