Sidney Municipal Court Judge Donald Luce announced his retirement on October 31st. He remember his time on the bench, “If I were to capture one memory apart from all the rest it surely would be the re-dedication of the Monumental Building, renowned as Ohio’s first Veteran’s Hall, as the new home of Sidney Municipal Court in 2000. This edifice was built in 1875 as a memorial to those Shelby Countians who perished during the Civil War. It is a three-story structure with an Opera House on the third floor that at one time provided the venue for the most famous Vaudeville troupes in the nation, including Bill Cody and his Wild West Show. This great hall is now the courtroom replete with 36-foot ceilings, atriums, balconies, prosceniums flanking the bench.”
Judge Luce said he intends to write fiction and non-fiction and work as a visiting judge, arbitrator and mediator.
