BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Some vendors have been displaying Confederate flags at a Pennsylvania fair amid confusion about the policy in effect.
The (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise (http://bit.ly/2xtuDEm ) reports that Bloomsburg Fair officials originally said the flags wouldn’t be prominently displayed, but they’ve dotted the midway.
President Paul Reichart said officials “don’t want 15 flags up” but he doesn’t see a problem with a few if no one complains.
Vendor John Wolf says he sells 200 to 250 a week when the flag is a hot topic — but otherwise he only sells a few.
