I'd like to take a moment to say I will really miss a fellow historian. Hallie Sweeting of Sterling passed away into history on July 8, 2010. She was part of our Fillmore Days celebration just a few weeks ago; that's just the kind of person Hallie was.
She loved her town and it showed. She wrote several books about it, and was a source of information and assistance to the general public as well as her fellow historians. She had been at it for more years than I can count, and will not be an easy act to follow.
Thank you, Hallie.
