CONFEDERATE FLAG-ICE CREAM SHOP

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- It's not our flag. That's what the new owners of a South Carolina ice cream shop are saying. There's a Confederate battle flag in front of the Edisto River Creamery in Orangeburg. Owners Tommy and Debbie Daras tell the Times and Democrat, the flagpole sits on a tiny parcel of land deeded to the Sons of the Confederate Veterans. Now, the Daras say they are getting threats and angry messages, over a Confederate flag which they can't do anything about.

GUAM SEAL CHANGES

AGANA, Guam (AP) -- There's a goof on the flag of Guam. Jose Martinez is one of those pointing out a mistake on the flag and seal of the U.S territory. The flag depicts a flying proa, a type of outrigger canoe. Martinez is the secretary of Traditions Affirming our Seafaring Ancestry. He says the outrigger is on the wrong side. He adds if canoes were built that way they wouldn't sail and compares it to drawing a car with triangle wheels. Martinez tells the Pacific Daily News the flag should be fixed.
