Ken Webber, 28, a school bus driver from Medford, Ore. who was suspended from his job for refusing to remove a Confederate flag from the truck bed of his personal vehicle parked at the Phoenix-Talent School District’s bus barn on Colver Road in Talent, Ore. A spokeswoman for the school bus company said Webber was asked to remove the flag because it violates school district policy. Webber said his suspension violates his free speech rights and he plans to hire an attorney. Story here. (AP Photo/The Medford Mail Tribune, Bob Pennell)
