Flags to fly half-staff

Gov. Pete Ricketts, in accordance with a proclamation from President Donald Trump, announced that all U.S. and Nebraska flags are to be flown at half-staff on Tuesday in honor of U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who died last week.

Stevens served from 1975 to 2010.

Flags will be flown at half-staff on Tuesday only, the day of his burial.
