Bill Carter, former U.S. Secret Service agent, attorney, politician, television producer and more, spoke at the annual Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce banquet Thursday evening about his work as an agent during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations.

L.J. Bryant, who spoke prior to Carter, said, "This is my third Chamber banquet and Mr. Carter is the speaker that I've been the most excited about."

When Carter approached the podium he posed the question: "Where were you when President Kennedy was shot?" Carter, a native of Rector, entered the Secret Service in 1962. He was 26 years old and was in Washington, D.C., the day President Kennedy was assassinated.
