City Clerk Retires After 25 Years

It’s mid-December and Susan Weathers sits in her office at Coeur d’Alene City Hall. The walls are bare. Her desk is spotless. Only a loose end or two need wrapping up before 2012 comes to a close. After more than two decades, Weathers is retiring from her post as city clerk, effective today (New Year's Eve Day). She won’t leave empty handed, though. Memories, friendships and experience from 26 years on the job will go with her. “The years have gone by in a blink,” she says. “I feel like I’ve had the front row seat in the World Series of Coeur d’Alene.” Indeed, she has. Weathers, appointed city clerk in 1987, has served under four mayors. She has seen Coeur d’Alene grow more than 40 percent over the years, watched as it lost its lumber mills and witnessed it emerge as a tourist destination/Kristina Lyman, Coeur d'Alene Today. More here.

Question: Am I the only one who remembers former City Clerk Lois Lawson?
