Cottage Grove resident and retiring school custodian Bob Beskar to be honored by school
Cottage Grove resident Bob Beskar has made Royal Oaks Elementary his home for the past 12 years as the school's custodian, but something seemed to be missing.
At the end of every day Beskar, who works as the school's night cleaner, takes down the school's American flag.
"People see it during the day, but the older elementary schools don't have the lighted flags so it comes down every night," said Beskar, a U.S. Air Force veteran. "I feel that it's only up half the time."
