Poles on Bend's North End To Come Down
Actually, not all the poles are going to come down -- one's going to be left as a gigantic flag pole, according to this press release:
August 28 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
I actually applaud not only the removal of those poles (finally) but the use of one as an American Flag pole.

The nets and the poles will no longer be an eye sore on Bends north side. Before the snow flies, Bend's skyline will be absent of the controversial driving range nets and poles. With one exception...the new owners wish to leave a single pole and display an American Flag. In fact we would like to dedicate this particular Flag to all of our military families here in Central Oregon. With the recent loss of Cpl. Randy Newman and Pfc. Tom Tucker we can think of no greater tribute than to recognize these men and their families.
From Redmond to LaPine and Awbrey Butte to Pilot Butte all who travel to and from this community will be reminded of those who have and are serving our country. We thank and honor those who serve.
