    Johnny Rodriguez (left) and his son, Jordan, pose with a handmade flag that Johnny crafted to commemorate the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Flags were in short supply after the attack, so Johnny created his own made out of sheet metal. He painted the flag onto the metal and nailed it to the wall of Abel and Adelita Rodriguez’s house, 311 North Flint Avenue, in Lamesa. The flag still hangs there today, 17 years later. This past Tuesday, Sept. 11, Jordan is holding a photo that the Press-Reporter printed a few years ago of the flag.   (LPR photo by Benjamin Hettick)
