LINWOOD, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan cheesemaker that turns heads with its larger-than-life statue of a milk cow at its shop entrance is making a big patriotic gesture.

A storm toppled Williams Cheese Company’s sign and U.S. flag in 2012, so owner Mike H. Williams resolved to replace the 6-by-10-foot flag at the store. The Bay City Times reports (https://bit.ly/2karh5v ) crews this week raised one that’s 10 times that size.

His son Ladd Williams says the business “used to be the place with the cow.” Now, he notes: “we might be the place with the flag.”

The installation came ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States. The Williams family says the new 20-by-30-foot flag aims to be a general patriotic message rather than a specific political endorsement.
