Local school teacher and lifetime I-25 Rancher, George Pigg, worked hard to build, paint, and set the flag pole in his yard. He wanted Old Glory flying to celebrate the birthday of the United States, and to show his pride in his country. Best of all, his little granddaughters were coming to visit and he wanted to teach them how to put up the flag and honor it.

As happens with the best of plans, the flag story got thrown a twist. Tuesday, July 7, 2020, Pigg, daughter Kasie, and granddaughters Callie and Laynie traveled into Pueblo for breakfast with plans to return, put up the flag and then go enjoy a day of riding four-wheelers on the ranch. When they returned from breakfast, Pigg went into the house to get keys while the ladies were getting to the four-wheelers. Four-year-old Callie said, "I'm going to go help Grandpa," and took off at a run toward the shop. Knowing Pigg had gone the other way to the house, Kasie turned to see what Callie was doing only to find her running towards a strange man near the shop. Kasie cried out to Callie and Pigg came and got between the man and the girls.
