Why were flags flown at half-staff Monday around Lawrence?

It was in honor of the late Strom Thurmond, the longtime Republican senator from South Carolina. A presidential proclamation was issued and sent out nationwide to state and local governments advising that the flags be flown at half-staff.

Thurmond, 100, died last Thursday and was buried Tuesday.
