Nebraska's Sally Gordon To Retire At 102
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Nebraska's assistant sergeant-in-arms will work her last day on Tuesday. 102-year-old Sally Gordon told the Lincoln Journal Star she wants to retire while she's still young. She often walks seven blocks to work where she passes messages to lawmakers and keeps order in the chambers. Still beautiful, the former model is known for her stylish hats at the state capitol - a building that Sally Gordon watched being built in 1922.
