WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita park official has taken down a Confederate battle flag from a park. Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell said Thursday the flag will stay down, at least temporarily. The Wichita Eagle reports that city officials are expected to meet with veterans groups Monday to discuss the flag's future at the John S. Stevens Pavilion at Veterans Memorial Park, where the flag has flown with several other flags since 1976. A plaque at the site says the 13 historic flags were chosen to commemorate "the diversity of purposes and peoples who have contributed to this Country's enrichment." Longwell says the city council has received several emails and calls since the issue surfaced after the recent shootings in South Carolina. The shooting suspect has been seen in photographs with the flag.
