Post Falls American Flag Flap

It’s the season of the Fourth of July, so of course we had to have an HOA versus American Flag story. Unfortunately, this year we had one right here in the Gem State. Post Falls, Idaho, to be exact.

It is never a good idea for an HOA to try to interfere with a homeowner’s right to fly Old Glory. This applies doubly when he’s a dapper veteran like Mr. Benham of Post Falls.

The local news picked up the story and the HOA wisely sounded the retreat. The President made a personal apology to defuse what was quickly becoming a heated problem. Allie Norton puts it thus:

Although Benham wasn’t complying according to Fieldstone rules, which he agreed to when he bought the house. the board let it go. Benham is happy that they did, but would also like a written apology so he can show all veterans.

Ms. Norton does not mention if the HOA’s threat to use fines was legal under Idaho’s new fine laws.
