County will honor those who gave lives

Thirteen American flags hanging outside the Rood Administrative Center will mark the second annual Nevada County Public Safety Appreciation Day, which is Wednesday.

The flags represent 13 law enforcement officers or firefighters who died in the line of duty between 1856, with the shooting of Sheriff W.W. “Boss” Wright, to 1992, with the plane crash of air tanker pilot Roger Stark.

Last year the 13 were recognized with a memorial stone unveiling at the Rood Center.
