Terry was on the night shift on Sept. 11, 2001:

As a night editor at The Gazette, I arrived early that afternoon, eager to know what role I would play in assembling a historic edition. The answer: school board elections.

There was some suspense early in the day about whether auditors would close polling places, but that didnít happen. So a couple of reporters and I were pushed to the side to collect information for a chart, a list and a couple of stories.

Turnout reflected the interest level in local elections while the world seemed to be coming apart at the seams -- only 3.2 percent of eligible Cedar Rapids voters cast ballots that night.

I was disappointed, but someone had to do the job.
