Sad day for a former legislator

From the Rapid City Journal:

Gov. Dennis Daugaard requests that all flags in the state be flown at half-staff from 8 a.m. to until sunset Wednesday, Aug. 1, in honor of LaRue.

?Maury was a respected legislator, a former mayor of Sturgis and a long-time teacher and coach who touched many lives,? Daugaard said in a press release.  ?I extend my condolences to his family.?

LaRue was a member of the South Dakota House of Representatives from 2003 to 2004.
