I didn't hear about the evening ceremony. I would have gone.

The Springfield Republican mentioned it for all 9 or ten days at the end of the Front Page 9/11 series they ran.

And today's Republican had some really great photos from the event (my camera and skills are not nearly as good as Greg Saulmon's.)

The Gazette of course ignored it.
