Why flags are at half staff (Updated)

As I’m sure you are already aware, flags in Southborough and across the nation are flying at half staff  in honor of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scolia. (You can read more here.)

A Presidential Proclamation calls for flags to remain lowered until sunset on the day of his interment. Funeral plans have yet to be announced.

Updated (2/22/16 10:47 am): Justice Scolia was interred on Saturday, February 20th. Therefore, an order to raise the flags has been issued.
