Replace patriotism

Dear Editor:
All the repairs have been completed on the Joseph Brandt No.2 School.
All wooden facades and fences removed on balcony.
Be nice if City Hall/Board of Education or some veterans group got together to replace the American flag that for years so proudly flew over the entrance of this educational location.
While on education – schools always taught rules of spelling – such as the 2 middle letters in:
snow – no = no snow
spelling of no means no
is pronounced is – so why ISIS pronounced like Issac?
Issac once owned a clothing store and tailor shop on First St??
Don’t honor them by calling their name pronounce is as is.
If you spell out American, the last four letters are I – can.
