QUESTION: Why were flags being flown at half-staff on Aug. 20?

ANSWER: Gov. Sam Brownback ordered that flags be flown at half-staff last Wednesday in honor of the passing of state Rep. Joe Edwards. Edwards, of Haysville, died late Aug. 19 of a suspected heart attack. He served one term in the Kansas Legislature representing the 93rd District. Edwards, 60, lost his re-election bid to John Whitmer in the August Republican Primary.
