Flags throughout the district are flying at half-staff on Friday, August 3, in memory of Washington State Department of Natural Resources diver David Scheinost of Puyallup. Scheinost died July 24 while diving in the waters near Bainbridge Island to sample for paralytic shellfish poisoning.

The Governor has requested that flags at all state agency facilities be lowered when a Washington state government employee is killed in the line of duty.
