K-DOCK 92.9

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber has ordered all flags at public institutions throughout the state be lowered to half-staff until Friday, September 20th, in remembrance of the victims of the Navy Yard shooting.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and their friends during this very difficult time,” said Governor Kitzhaber. “While there’s much we don’t yet know about this tragedy, we are comforted by the quick reaction of first responders who were once again called to action.”
