Ray Cartwright: Shame on you

I receive an email from http://www.flagstatus.com whenever the flags should be flown at half-staff.

This is an excerpt from that:

“President Obama has ordered the United States Flag to be flown at half-staff immediately, Tuesday, April 16, 2013 until sunset on Saturday, April 20, 2013 in memory of the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on April 15, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts.”

So after a wonderful dinner at KFC on Wednesday night, we decided that we would take a tour of Craig.

Flags at the Moffat County Library, Moffat County Courthouse, City Hall and The American Legion all were at full staff. I commend Ridgeview Elementary, Yampa Valley Bank and McDonald’s for having them lowered to half-staff. We didn’t get to all of the areas across town as we were on a schedule, and I am sure I missed some of the ones that did and the ones that didn’t. To the ones that didn’t, including all of our government buildings, shame on you.
