Associated Press Published 9:59 AM EDT Jun 18, 2019 Statesville, N.C. – A North Carolina city has voted against the flying of really big flags, holding its ground against a reality TV star’s huge Stars and Stripes. News outlets report the Statesville City Council voted down changes to the flag ordinance Monday night. That means flags in Statesville must be no larger than 25 feet by 40 feet. That’s roughly half the size of the American flag that Marcus Lemonis has unfurled outside his Gander RV company. Statesville has asked a court to order Gander RV to comply or pay a $50 per day fine. Lemonis runs Camping World and stars on “The Profit” on CNBC. He says the flag is staying. He’s said he’ll go to jail for contempt of court to protect his constitutional rights. … [Read more...] about Reality TV star loses city vote against his huge U.S. flag

TV long has been influenced by actors and producers who have made their way through the Bay Area. But so far this year, they’re making a bigger impact than perhaps ever before. Take a run through the prime-time listings and you’ll find numerous shows that feature the work of people who were born in the Bay Area, and/or went to college here.

THE term “public figures” used to mean politicians and actors. But now pupils are just as likely to talk to me about reality TV favourites and Instagram stars. Children are bombarded with images and ideas 24/7 and are easily influenced by what they see. So teachers have to help young people navigate this rapidly changing, highly visible world. And whether they like it or not, all public figures have a responsibility to remember that young people are watching everything they do. With this in mind, I make a point of watching reality TV. In schools up and down the country teachers use examples from shows such as Love Island or I’m A Celebrity to open discussions about behaviour, keeping yourself safe, morality, what’s good and what’s bad and how you need to think about other people’s feelings as well as your own.
