AM: Flagpole Painter Recuperates

Flagpole painter Warren Hinrichs, 73, holds his dog Stitch and rests up at home in Spokane on Wednesday. He started climbing and painting flagpoles and water towers more than 50 years ago with his dad, Bill Hinrichs, seen in many photos in his home office. He was rescued after passing out on a Yakima flag pole Monday. Story here. (SR photo: Jesse Tinsley)
