Florrie Wakenight Lyle, who turned 100 in August, rang a bell as part of a Veterans Day ceremony Monday at the Saline County Courthouse in Benton. The bell was given to Lyle by her mother in 1918 for the youngster to help spread the word that fighting had ended in World War I. Lyle’s bell ringing has been a part of many patriotic observances in Saline County.
