Staff report



COLUMBUS – Governor John R. Kasich ordered that all flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset on Patriot Day, Friday, Sept. 11, in honor of the lives lost in the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001.

In addition, he asked that all Ohioans observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. EDT.

“We honor and pay tribute to our courageous men and women in uniform serving around the world, as well as to the dedicated members of our law enforcement, public safety and intelligence communities who work diligently and tirelessly to protect us from danger and, when called upon, stand willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice to preserve the freedoms we value,” said Kasich.
