At 100, she's still a key aide to Neb. lawmakers
LINCOLN, Neb. -- When Sally Gordon was born in 1909, workers hadn't even started building Nebraska's Capitol, where she still works.
On Thursday, her 100th birthday, hundreds of people came to honor the woman who has served as an assistant sergeant-at-arms for the Nebraska Legislature for 26 years and was an aide to three governors before that.
"When I don't work, I just go crazy," said Gordon, who has worked for more than 80 of her 100 years.
Although she's slowed down a little, Gordon still walks to work at the Capitol when the weather's nice. Her son Jim calls her "the Energizer Bunny."
After the party, she headed upstairs and back to work, with no plans of retiring anytime soon.
Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler, a former state senator, recalled Thursday how he felt when Gordon had to tell him to hurry back to his seat for a vote.
"When Sally came and put her hand on my arm, her lightest admonition was like the heaviest weight," Beutler said. "I would sulk back to my chair."
President Obama sent Gordon a letter of congratulations.
"Oh," she gasped as her son read it aloud. "With all he has to do, to write to me!"
