2nd Tallest Flagpole In The U.S.

Local says this is now the tallest because the 1st was destroyed in a hurricane... Katrina?

[Robert Slayden, 03/25/2010]

Not quite. The former tallest flagpole -- in Wisconsin -- was taken down because of poor construction. But the former 2nd tallest, and now tallest, flagpole is still standing in Laredo, Texas. So the flagpole in Dorris is still the 2nd tallest!
