  • Flags Lowered To Honor Nelson Mandela

    President Barack Obama has ordered flags lowered to honor Nelson Mandela, who died yesterday at his home in South Africa.

    In a proclamation issued last night, the President has ordered “that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations … until sunset, December 9, 2013.”

    Hook & Ladder firefighters will lower the Main Street flag this morning.
