A Request

I know that I have a reader or two who work for the Department of Administration. Could you please pass a request through channels to the Governor's Office?

Light the flagpole at the Governor's Mansion at night or strike the colors at sunset. One or the other is correct. Flying the flag in the dark, as it was on Saturday night, is not.

Thank you.

Yeah, definitely not cool. Thanks for pointing it out. Hope someone heard loud and clear.

From Title 4, Section 1, Para 6, Subpara a):

"It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness."

Good catch grumps.....
