Painting near Capitol

Jim Foley, the owner of J. Foley Steeplejack Services of New Haven, has been climbing tall things for 42 years. Wednesday Foley scraped and painted the flag pole on Lafayette St. across from the state Superior Court building and near the State Capitol, rear. When asked when the pole was last painted, 'George Washington did it last,' he said.STEPHEN DUNN, THE HARTFORD COURANT
