The large flagpole on the Luzerne County Courthouse south lawn recently fell down due to dry rot at the base of the pole, county acting Manager C. David Pedri told the county council.

“Thankfully, no one was injured,” Pedri said.

The county will use a smaller flagpole on the south lawn until a new larger one can be ordered and installed this spring, he said.
