A somewhat upsetting news article...

Two neighbors have been fighting over the American flag of all things, because one of them says it is disturbing the peace.

The giant symbol of freedom is a bit noisy when it whips around in the wind outside of Ray Saelen's house.

One neighbor complained that in high winds the symbol of freedom becomes a disturbence of the peace. Ray Saelens likes to watch his flag wave in the wind and he also likes the sound.

"The flag is a voice of all the people who have given their lives for our country in the past, and every time that flag makes a noise, that reminds me of all the people who have given their lives," he said.

What is patriotic to Ray's ears is apparently a problematic noise for one of his neighbors, whose complaint to Chesterfield Township Police led to a ticket.
