LINCOLN, Neb. - A 102-year-old woman who works for the state of Nebraska is hanging up her professional hat, saying it is time to enjoy retirement.

Sally Gordon worked for three governors before rejecting retirement and at age 75 started a new career as a legislative sergeant at arms.

For 27 years Gordon has worked as one of the Nebraska legislature's five gatekeepers, ferrying messages from lobbyists to lawmakers during floor debate and keeping order during committee hearings.

She said health concerns were not a factor in her decision to retire on Tuesday.
