HONORED: The American and Missouri Flags located near the Thayer Police Station and Fire Station were flown at half-mast last week in honor of longtime Thayer Volunteer Fire Department member Henry Straw. Straw lost his battle with cancer last week.

Henry, you are missed by a lot of people. I have known you for a long time, and we all still miss you! You were certainly dedicated to your work! We thank God you are no longer suffering.
