Chuck Ritz and his volunteers found the ground rock-hard as they began planting thousands of American flags along Putty Hill Road in Parkville to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Last year, the wooden stakes went into the earth easily, and the task was done in three hours, but not this time. "We were using any tool we could find to make a hole in the ground," said Ritz, 54, who has been organizing 9/11 events here since the 10th anniversary in 2011. One man brought a power drill, but the batteries didn't hold up. Others used screwdrivers and hammers.
