SANDUSKY

After 30 years, Abraham Lincoln is once again bidding farewell.  Jim Getty, a well-known Lincoln re-enactor and former Sandusky High School choral director, is retiring from his school performance, "A Visit With Mr. Lincoln."

Currently living in Gettysburg, Pa., Getty said he will still maintain his presence as Lincoln in the town's theater.
