LAKE PLACID - Better late than never. Two days before she turns 97, Ruth (Paine) Hart is getting the Liberty Bell Award on Sunday, May 1 from the Essex County Bar Association, an honor bestowed upon her late husband, Dr. George Hart, 43 years ago.

"Of course, I was totally surprised and remembered that George got the award in 1973," Hart said. "So that's quite a span of years."

A Law Day luncheon will start at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at the Crowne Plaza Resort in Lake Placid. It is open to the public, and the cost is $25. The Liberty Bell Award will be given to Hart at that time.
