"We helped people out- that's just what we did," she recalled. As a military wife, Hurst was on the ladies auxiliary at every base, helping families and soldiers with whatever they needed. Once she and Coyett moved back to Texas, they settled in San Marcos, where he had been stationed back in 1954. Hurst then worked as a director of Family Planning- a career she had for the next 25 years. "We had 16 clinics serving women in eight counties," Hurst said. "Now, due to poli- tics, the money is gone. They have three clinics now. They are not even close to serving the women." The disdain in her voice was clear. When the Hursts moved to Lake LBJ, they enjoyed the be- ginning of their golden years. But as her husband's health deterioratedl they decided to move to Kyle to be closer to their family. Hurst again picked up her love of volunteerism, joining the boards of several local organizations including the Friends of the Kyle Library, Meals onWheels and her church. Looking back on her life, Hurst said she is at peace and knows she accomplished much. She also knows how fortunate she is to have lived to age 79 and have a large, loving family. Now that she is in hospice and facing her final days, Hurst said her biggest wish was to see her grandson, who lives in It's About Thyme Continued from pg. 1C tiful new growth this spring. 5. Prepare spring vegetable garden. I would recommend the solarization method to get rid of weeds. Till your garden with a mechanical tiller or a garden spade and water the area thoroughly. Cover with a clear plastic film and secure the perimeter with rocks or soil. The sun will raise the temperature in the garden soil to levels that will kill weeds and seeds. Allow the film to stay on for a month to six weeks. When removed, your garden will be weed free. 6. Catalog browsing. Find a comfortable armchair and get to work! January is a good time to look through garden and seed catalogs to decide on varieties you want to grow this year. Starting a garden journal is a simple way to keep track of what you plant and what has been successful. 7. Plant asparagus. Now is the time to prepare beds and plant. Three-year asparagus crowns will arrive in local nurseries early this month. Beds should be dug deeply and filled with rich organic compost. Three-year crowns will put you closer to harvest than seed grown. 8. Onions are still possible. You still have the opportunity to produce large onions this year. Also you can plant tur- nips, collards and radishes. 9. Prune your shrubs. Cut them back, but avoid any that will bloom in the spring. (Prune them after they bloom.) 10. Plant a fruit tree. Many fruit tree varieties will arrive in local nurseries this month, and in February and March. Try apples, peaches, plums, persimmons and pears. Happy gardening everyone!

In order to do so, I need to first identify persons in the community who are looking for a church home, and who are willing to assist me in this initial stage. The Disciples of ChGst is a moderate denomination that weicemes everyone to the Communion table, as Jesus welcomed us. One ef our founders used a phrase that aptly describes us: "No creed but Christ; no book but the Bibie." tn addition, we do not have a central policy on current political issues, as we respect each others' btiefs. Our membership is very diverse, having we[corned thousands from other denominations. Our traditional form of baptism is by immer- sion, b'=t we respect the traditions of these who have been baptized by other methods. Please drop me a note via U.S. Mail or by email if you are interested in assisting me or in pro'riding me some positive insight in this new and exciting venture as we begin the newyear. Thank you very much. Rev. J.D. EIsEIshoff 1105 Grandview Drive San Marcos, IX 78666 +
