New Braunfels Oddity
There is a medium-sized city in central Texas that is now flying its American flag at half-mast. This is the city of New Braunfels, located between Austin and San Antonio. According to an informed source, the flags at the Comal County courthouse (in New Braunfels) and an immense American flag off a major highway nearby are flying at half-mast by orders of “the government.” We are told that flag hoists are “electronically” controlled at the highway site. American flags are not to be flown at half-mast except in the event of the loss of high officials in Washington, D.C., as every school child should know. Queries to officials have gone unanswered.
