At the request of Gov. Edward G. Rendell, American and state flags have been lowered to half-staff at all state facilities, local government offices and other public buildings in honor of Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll.
Knoll, 72, died Nov. 12 after a long battle with cancer. She was the first woman elected as Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor.
The flag will remain at half-staff until Knoll's interment on November 25.
