Warren Hinrichs says he’s painted flagpoles in 48 states over the past 50 years. One woman compared him to Johnny Appleseed.
The 68-year-old Spokane, Wash., man said he started in the business after his father, Bill, began painting flagpoles in 1935. Warren Hinrichs estimates he has painted about 4,000 flagpoles.
This week, he’s in Valley City, working on six flagpoles.
