Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all state flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff until sunset on Tuesday, July 3 to honor the victims of last week’s tragedy at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Md. Five employees were killed and several injured after a gunman entered the newspaper office and began firing. The governor’s order was issued this (Tuesday) morning in conjunction with President Donald Trump’s order to lower all U.S. flags for the same length of time. Flags on the State Capitol Building and in the Capitol Complex will be a half-staff in addition to those on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state. Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly flags at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of respect.
