A letter from Adair Co. Judge Executive Ann Melton

It is with much regret that I must lift the Executive Order to lower Adair County Flags to half-staff. It seems that I have offended some citizens and particularly some Veterans of Adair County.

I never thought that any one life was any more important than another, but as one young lady said, "this town has been turned upside down." I believe that this community has shown a deep love for our young people and it was meant to honor the life of a young woman who loved her community, her family, and most of all, her God.

To the Hadley family and all who have lost loved ones, our hearts are heavy for your loss.

To those who were offended, my deepest regrets. I have a strong love for all veterans, and no citizen or veteran loves this country more than I do.

Thanks you and God bless!


Adair County Judge/Executive
