Gov. Chris Gregoire has directed that flags at all state agency buildings be lowered to half-staff today in memory of Grant County sheriff's Deputy John Bernard. Bernard was killed while on duty last week from injuries suffered in a car accident.
Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business today or first thing Tuesday morning. Other government entities, residents and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
