The Prineville flag at the entrance of their City is now flying 24/7. A two year project to illuminate the large American flag at the A,T & T Cell Tower is done. State law requires flags to be lighted to fly day and night; otherwise you have to take the flag down at the end of the day. Crook County Commissioner Seth Crawford lead efforts to light the flag. “It's a kind of circular set up around the base of the flag, 6 lights shine upwards and illuminate it. It’s a very large flag: 30 x 50 foot. It’s on a 120 foot pole that is also the A,T & T Cell Tower. Eoff Electric, Facebook, A,T & T and Rosendin Electric and the people of Crook County all donated materials and money to the project. Crawford still needs $1500 from residents to help pay for the lighting. To donate, make checks payable to "Friends of the Flag" , 1555 NW 3rd St., Prineville.
