There were lots of hugs and tributes and a few tears Monday at the Historic Courthouse during a busy three-hour drop-in for retiring Police Chief Harlean Carter.
A steady crowd of well-wishers flowed in and out, with at least 30 people filling the old courtroom the entire time.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with the chief over the years,” said Sheriff Barry Faile, one of many officials in the room. “She’s always been a team player and always had the best interests of the citizens in mind. She will be missed.”
