  • Retired football coach of four decades lowered American flags to half-staff in Ashe County after the Orlando nightclub shooting

    Roy Carter said he is very proud of his openly gay son and has always had a progressive mind, despite living in North Carolina's rural and mostly conservative High Country all his life. After 49 people were killed at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla. in June, he noticed that many government buildings in his local Ashe County were not complying with President Obama's directive to lower American flags to half-staff in honor of the victims. Carter took it upon himself to drive from a fire station to a post office and even private businesses lowering flags as he went.
