Hebron Village Administrator Mike McFarland is also retiring at the end of the year. Village officials and staff held a reception in his honor last Thursday. Here McFarland, on the right, talks with an old friend. Municipal administration represented a second career for the Hebron native who served as village administrator for 10 years. His first position was income tax administrator after he took early retirement from AT&T. Dozens of associates from Licking County stopped by to thank him for his help with the Chamber of Commerce and county economic development efforts. Beacon photo by Charles Prince.
