Dent County reverses position, flags will not be lowered

(KTRS) – The flags in Dent County will continue to fly at full staff. Yesterday the county commissioners voted unanimously to lower the flags to half-staff to “mourn” the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage.

The Post-Dispatch reports that Dent County commissioner Darrel Skiles said they plan to meet this week to rescind the decision. Skiles said that while many agreed with the reasoning behind the vote, they felt that flags should only be lowered to honor the deaths of soldiers and dignitaries.

Salem sits just a bit more than 40 miles from Fort Leonard Wood.
