Half-staff colors a reminder of a troubling trend

The U.S. and state flags hang at half-mast in front of Pateros City Hall to honor those citizens lost in mass shootings so far this year. As of this writing, 73 people have died and 163 injured in 40 mass shootings starting on New Years Day through the first three weeks of January. If this pace continues the colors may seldom see the view from the top of the pole. Photo by Mike Maltais/QCH
