In memoriam

49164-flags half staff after giffords shotting 001.jpg

Flags fly at half-staff in front of the San Gabriel Valley Newspapers building in West Covina in remembrance of those who were killed in Tucscon on Saturday. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the heat and remains in critical condition, but was responding to doctors’ commands.

Are all government installations flyling flags at half-staff, by order of President Obama? You can’t really see in this photo, but the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District building across the street had not lowered its flags.

About Steve Scauzillo

I love journalism. I've been working in journalism for 32 years. I love communicating and now, that includes writing about environment, transportation and the foothill/Puente Hills communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Walnut and Diamond Bar. I write a couple of columns, one on fridays in Opinion and the other, The Green Way, in the main news section. Send me ideas for stories. Or comments. I was opinion page editor for 12 years so I enjoy a good opinion now and then.
