EDITOR’S NOTE
On my bookshelf is a tattered copy of Laura
Ingalls Wilder’s beloved classic Little House in the
Big Woods, about a young girl and her family in
pioneer days. This book, with its broken spine
and yellowed, crumbling pages, links me not only
to my past but to our nation’s past, when people
heaped possessions in wagons and spread out
over the continent. Among the traditions and
keepsakes we’ve inherited from these pioneers is
the confidence to move toward our future.
In this issue, Emily Treadway tells the story
of just such a pioneer: Carolyn Jackson. Read
about this woman, who took a microphone in
hand and stepped into television broadcasting
when it was dominated by men, opening the way
for other women in the field. The photo essay
“The Camaraderie of Cloth” provides a look at how quilting, a tradition of skill
and social customs often handed down for generations, remains vibrant in
Georgetown—and continues with young people eager to learn this art.
Just as quilters apply new fabric and techniques to freshen up tried-andtrue patterns, we’re introducing a slightly new look to Georgetown View this
month. For a long time, we’ve fretted about how many of the great photos
our photographers take never make it into the magazine because of space
constraints. For 2015, you’ll find the same types of stories about Georgetown
that you’ve come to expect, but we’ve made some layout changes that allow us
to weave more photos into feature stories. So snuggle up in a quilt, sip some
hot chocolate, and peruse this month’s View. We hope you like what you see.

Dan Marek, international
wine judge
Dan Marek, owner of Georgetown Winery, not only
makes wines, but he judges them, too. As a certified international wine judge, he can identify numerous varieties of
wines from around the world by their smell and flavor.
What does an international wine judge do? A
judge’s duty is to judge—blind—approximately 200 wines a
day for two days. Yes, you do a lot of swirling and spitting!
How is judging so much wine possible? Judges are
put on a very strict diet during the competition to ensure
their palate is not flawed during the judging process,
which normally begins at nine in the morning and lasts
until six in the evening. Judges are seated four to a table,
with some wine competitions having as many as 100
judges. At your table of four, you are each to describe the
wine, smell the wine, and taste the wine. Once each judge
has done this, they are to give it a placing.
Why did you want to be an international wine
judge? I wanted the experience of trying thousands of
different wines, but this was also an opportunity for me [to
learn] to make wines not normally found in Texas.
– Emily Treadway
Described by his father as a “gift from God with a beautiful spirit,” Jonah Cary is blind, unable to use his extremities,
and bound to a wheelchair, after having suffered a massive
stroke at birth thirteen years ago. Last year, a ramp built by
the Williamson County Texas Ramp Association allowed Jonah much-needed access from his home to the wheelchair
swing his father built so that Jonah can play outside with
his brother and sister.
After hearing the state executive director of Texas Ramps
speak at a Georgetown Noon Rotary meeting several years
ago, Larry Baird and Bill O’Connor leapt into action. The two
knew that building wheelchair ramps for the disabled or
elderly who can’t afford one was something they wanted
to do in Williamson County. Today, the Williamson County
group consists of four build teams: Retirees in Action, Palm
Valley Lutheran Church, Christ Lutheran Church, and the
Georgetown Noon Rotary Club. At the rate of one ramp
build per team per month, this ambitious group has approximately 75 projects under their work belts since they
began in 2012.
“We build ramps for clients of many different needs,” says
Larry, who serves as project coordinator. Among those
served are kidney dialysis patients who are in wheelchairs,
people recovering from hospital stays, and people in institutionally-mandated situations. Some ramp recipients have
been imprisoned by the steps of their home for months at
a time.
On a hot summer day in 2013, eight Williamson County
Texas Ramp volunteers convened at the Cary home. They
spent four hours that they might otherwise have used to
run errands or do chores transforming the life of a child.
They arrived as mere mortals. They left as superheroes, at
least in the eyes of the Cary family.
– Karen Lange
The Williamson County Texas Ramp projects rely solely on donations, grants, and volunteers to support
their programs. Contact Larry Baird at 847-650-3651
or visit www.texasramps.org for information.

Austin Street Art Adventure
Go on a self-guided scavenger hunt for Austin’s iconic murals
The next time you’re in the mood to take in some art, consider driving to Austin
and going on a free, self-guided tour of the city’s urban art.
Here are a few popular suggestions—and their locations—to get you started:
I Love You So Much
Scrawled on the wall of Jo’s Coffee, this mural began as a graffiti love note from
Austin musician Amy Cook to her partner, Liz Lambert, majority owner of Jo’s
Coffee. Since its initial message was painted in 2010, this simple mural has
become the background of many photos of friends, family, and lovers.
Address: 242 W. 2nd St., Austin, TX 78701
Jeremiah the Innocent
Walk along The Drag, across from the University of Texas, and you’re sure to
spot Austin’s beloved amphibian, Jeremiah. Known by many as the “Hi, How
Are You?” frog, Jeremiah is based on cover art for a 1983 album by musician
Daniel Johnston, who transformed the small, alien-like frog on the album cover
into a wall-sized work in 1993. Address: Corner of 21st & Guadalupe, Austin, TX 78705
Greetings from Austin
If you’ve been searching for the perfect photo-op spot to take your out-of-town
visitors, look no further than this recreated post card mural originally painted in
1998 by Todd Sanders and Rory Skagen. You’ll find this iconic mural located on
the wall of Todd Sanders’ Roadhouse Relics studio and gallery.
Address: 1720 S. 1st St., Austin, TX 78704
Austin Graffiti Park
For a chance to spot local street artists creating original art, head over to Castle
Hill. There you’ll find an ever-evolving array of brightly colored artwork spraypainted over the walls. Enjoy, but don’t become too attached to a certain piece,
because by the next day another artist may have painted over it.
Address: Baylor St., Austin, TX 78703

Inside the Suit
GHS junior Brennan Crombie reveals what it’s like to be Georgie
What’s one unexpected skill you’ve learned as the Georgetown High School mascot,
Georgie? Pantomime. Since you can’t talk when you’re in the mascot suit, you have to know how
to put together different routines and act everything out.
Come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever heard a mascot talk! Normally,
because you’re wearing the head, no one can hear you, unless they’re super
close to you. See, when you’re a mascot, you’re taught to create an image. Once you step into the suit, you’re not you; you’re the character.
So you have to create a separate identity for the character.
What were tryouts like? At tryouts, you have to come up with your
own skit, act out something, and then perform it in front of judges.
You have to be really creative, because when you’re a mascot, you’re
expected to come up with different skits for different events—sometimes in less than 24 hours.
What kinds of skills are required of a mascot? You have to
be able to withstand very high temperatures, because it can be
brutal when you’re in the costume on the field in August or
September. It definitely helps to have a tolerance for sweating
a lot. Also, you can’t be embarrassed to dance around and do
silly stuff. At cheer camp, they taught us to interact with kids,
and that’s a big part, too.
So mascots are required to attend cheer camps? Yeah.
There’s a separate clinic for the mascots. We have our own performances and a separate instructor who was a mascot in college.
Do you have to be a cheerleader before you become a mascot? No. You do go
to the same events as the cheerleaders do, and you have to be just as energetic, but you
don’t necessarily have to be a cheerleader first.
Where all do you perform? Mostly at different school events like pep rallies and football games; we did a STAAR pep rally for the STAAR test at an elementary school, and we
went to a celebration for the bus drivers.
LIZ PAGLIUCO
-
What’s your favorite part of the job? When someone tells you that you made their little
sibling smile or that you were their favorite part of the game—that’s pretty cool. Georgie is a
huge icon in Georgetown tradition, and it’s awesome to be able to help share his positive impact with the community.

Two Guys
and a Gyro
By Jana Hunter
What happens when a retired chief information officer and multipleaircraft aficionado with a history of adventure meets a young
professional flight instructor, aircraft salesman, and Taylor Municipal
Airport board member?
They wind up barnstorming in a tiny, open-cockpit aircraft 2,290
miles from Taylor to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and back in two-hour
chunks at 75 to 100 mph and at about the altitude of the 44-story 360
Condominiums in Austin.
Say what?

J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W
THE DAYTON FLYER
Dayton Dabbs, 29, first became
aware of the gyroplane as a youngster.
“I mean, who didn’t want to be
James Bond?” he asks, referring to
the autogyro featured in the film You
Only Live Twice.
His dad flew helicopters for fun,
removing the doors to instill in his
son the thrill (after the initial terror
wore off) of open-air flying. Dayton—
his name an inadvertent nod to the
Wright brothers’ birthplace—caught
the incurable bug. He flew a helicopter at age 12 and asked for flight
lessons for Christmas two years later.
That granted wish required a promise
never to fly experimental aircrafts. He
soloed an airplane on his sixteenth
birthday and obtained his license on
his seventeenth.
But Dayton also is a hard-core
student of aviation—he discusses the
aerodynamics of various aircraft the
way most people explain the route
they drive to work—and he had read
about instability and faltering engines
in gyroplanes.
“The history behind the second
generation spooked me,” Dayton admits. “Then one day during my senior
year of high school, my dad said, ‘I’m
about to go fly a gyroplane. Do you
want to come?’” (Never mind that
the third generation, while certified
in European countries, is considered
an experimental aircraft in the U.S.)
“I immediately fell in love with it. Just
the freedom. That’s when I knew.”
“We thought it had crashed,” John
remembers. “We ran out to help the
guy, but he had just decided to land
on the golf course. I started asking
him questions, and he invited me to
fly.” A few years later, John obtained
his balloon license.
A hard-core student of everything
that interests him, the trilinguist
(including Spanish and French) has
a bachelor’s degree in biology and
finance, a master’s in management,
another master’s in aviation science, and lacks only his dissertation
to complete a doctorate of philosophy. His aviation repertoire grew to
include powered parachutes, sail
planes, airplanes, seaplanes, a book
(You Can Fly Now)—and now gyroplanes.
THE AIRCRAFT
The third rendition of the gyroplane—technically not an airplane—
dramatically improved the craft’s
safety issues, with the design and
equipment upgraded to include a
larger tail surface, a weightier main
rotor system, tweaks to the centers
of pressure and gravity, and an actual
aviation engine.
“The previous aircraft literally
used chainsaw engines,” Dayton says
incredulously.
The gyroplane, also known as an
autogyro and gyrocopter, was invented in the 1920s to solve a dangerous
aspect of flying a plane: stalling. Replacing the fixed wing with a rotating
blade that acts as a pinwheel, turning
and thus providing lift as air flows up
through it, makes stalling impossible.
The engine provides thrust to the
craft but not the blade. If it fails, the
gyroplane will float to the ground
as do maple seeds, the inventor’s
inspiration.
Although the gyroplane’s aerodynamics are more complex than an
airplane’s, the controls are much
simpler. A glorified joy stick—a cyclic—controls the altitude and banking, a throttle controls the thrust, and
rudder pedals keep the craft lined
up in the desired direction of travel.
The panel of gauges, switches, and
screens is about half that of a conventional small airplane.
THE TRIP
On a quest for adventure, to test
their aircraft’s mettle and their 
THE AIRCRAFT JUNKIE
John Craparo sat with rapt attention when his dad, a World War II
Army Air Corps pilot who passed
away when John was 14, shared
stories and pictures of himself flying
a P-40 Warhawk. Six months later, a
hot air balloon landed on a country
club fairway where John caddied.
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W 2 3
own and to promote gyroplanes,
the duo flew a Magni Gyro M-16 to
AirVenture, the annual aviation convention that draws more than half a
million people. They landed at twenty
airports in seven states, flying five of
the nine days they were gone.
It’s certainly not the fastest mode
of transportation. John once covered
six hundred more miles in only twice
the time. On a bicycle.
“It’s going for the Sunday drive
instead of taking I–35,” says Dayton,
owner of Lone Star Magni Gyro, obviously preferring the former.
John concurs, recounting the thrill
of smelling, from the air, freshly cut
24
grass and seeing wonders such as
the Bald Knob Cross of Peace in Illinois, the patchwork of orange roofs
in Missouri, and Soldier Field in Chicago, on which an autogyro landed
in 1932 and from which a balloon
launched to the stratosphere in 1933.
Adventure tailed the pair, on land
and in air. They came across Circus
City—a. k. a. Hugo, Oklahoma—
where several national traveling circuses winter. They dodged converging rain storms in Illinois, hitched a
ride from a Wisconsin woman who
“liked her beer and her men,” and
landed at a former WWII aircraft
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W
bone-yard in Arkansas.
Of the 10,000 aircraft that flew in to
AirVenture, only about a dozen were
gyroplanes. Dayton and John want to
change that.
“Having flown different types of
aircraft, I think the gyroplane is
the ultimate aircraft from a pilot’s
perspective,” says John, touting its
safety, ease, and low cost of operation, size, low flying altitude, and
unimpeded view. “You look at the
history of people imagining aircraft in
everybody’s garage, zooming around
like the Jetsons—I think this is the
closest we’ve come to that.” 

n Thursday afternoons at Handcrafts
Unlimited on the
Georgetown Square,
ladies settle into
chairs around a quilt frame,
laughing together and discussing their craft, just as women
have for generations. Quilts,
writes Marcia Kaylakie in Texas
Quilts and Quilters: A Lone Star
Legacy, provided rural Texas
women with “reasons to gather
and socialize; they were the utility items on a family’s bed; and
they were sentimental items that
could be a reminder or a gift.”
All the years I was growing up in our house in Midland,
I did not know that our attic contained treasure—until
we cleared out the house after my dad could no longer
live there alone. I stood below the attic opening, getting
showered with bits of lint and dust, as my brothers hoisted
down a wooden trunk with a curved lid that, from the look
of it, had once survived travel by wagon—it was that old.
Inside were two quilts and a letter to my older brother
and me from our grandmother, Ida, dated 1964. “My
grandmother pieced these two quilts,” she wrote. “They are
about 150 or 160 years old.”
I’d been hoping to find my long-lost Barbie RV in the attic;
instead, I found my heritage, pieced in squares made from
the shirts and dresses my ancestors likely wore.
Quilt making is a cultural heritage that links the old to the
new, and that is certainly true in Georgetown. Women still
gather around wood frames to hand stitch elaborate quilts,
while young people in 4-H learn quilting techniques both
traditional and modern. Whatever their age or skill level,
today’s quilters continue the legacy of an art form—and
social activity—that has endured for generations.
– Meg Moring
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W 3 1
Q
uilter Dorothy Schmidt,
88, remembers feeling that camaraderie as
she played under a quilt
frame lowered from the
living room ceiling while her aunts
and grandmother worked and talked
around it. As a child, her first quilting efforts were doll coverlets and
little pillowcases. After years teaching elementary school art, Dorothy, a
lifelong seamstress, resumed quilting
after retiring to Georgetown in 1981.
Her well-organized workshop, once
a bedroom, is stocked with various
sewing tools, fabric bins, an extrawide ironing surface, and a wall of
award ribbons, mostly for first or
second place or top ten.
Dorothy can’t count the number
of quilts she’s made, many of which
have become gifts for newlyweds or
for her family members.
A
round 1981, St. John’s
United Methodist Church’s
pastor, Reverend Bill
Smith, suggested that the
church start a quilting
circle. Thelma Munson, one of the
group’s original members, remembers Reverend Smith quilting right
along with the ladies. The group
still gathers to work on quilts for the
church’s Harvest Fest auction each
year, where the hand-made quilts
garner bids as high as $2,000; one recently commanded $4,600. The ladies
figure that the group has produced
seventy or more quilts since it began.

A
side from their kaleidoscopic beauty, quilts once
had to function as utility
items, too. They were essential for keeping whole
families warm during cold weather
months, as Myrtice Macomber, another original member of St. John’s
quilting group, remembers. She and
her six sisters helped make quilts in
the wintertime.
As railroads brought new fabrics
and sewing notions to rural Texas
outposts in the 19th century, women
combined carefully saved scraps with
store-bought material to produce
practical, yet beautiful quilts for their
families. Women once made their
own quilt patterns, but in the early
20th century, as women’s magazines
began to publish standard patterns,
quilters often exchanged and modified them. Today, quilters find the
latest fabrics, patterns, and specialty
threads at shops like Poppy Quilt ‘N
Sew in Georgetown.

“I
grew up helping my
grandmother with hand
quilting,” says Michele
Chambers, 50. On
holidays, the women
gathered in her grandmother’s living
room to do hand work on squares. In
turn, Michele is not only teaching her
daughter, Hannah, 16, to sew but is
also passing on the skill as a project
leader for the 4-H Clothing and Textiles Project.
Through 4-H, girls (and a boy or
two) learn the basics of quilting step
by step—designing, cutting, piecing,
and sewing—with the help of Michele
and other quilters. In 4-H, Michele
explains, “the mission is for the kids
to have community service and leadership opportunities.” As quilters like
Hanna develop their skills, they teach
the younger girls in turn. The quilts
produced by the 4-H groups are auctioned off at the 4-H banquet to raise
scholarship money for 4-H students
heading to college.

“I
learned everything that
I know about sewing
from my grandma,”
Ashleigh Snyder, 17,
says. “When I was
eight, I made my first quilt.” She
laughs about how “messy” it turned
out, but today the Granger High
School senior still works on quilts
during visits with her grandmother
and has taken part in two 4-H quilt
projects. “It’s cool,” Ashleigh remarks, that she’s learned the skills

Google Maps Business View
– Presented by Rebranding 360
I
n Sept of 2013, Ray Espinosa,
president/CEO of Rebranding
360 Introduced himself to many
Georgetown business owners. He
hit the pavement bringing Google
Maps Business View to the forefront as the newest affordable and
incredibly effective way to market a
business.
Ray has assembled a dynamic and
hardworking team for Georgetown
and Central Texas. Kylie EbersoleSales and Todd White-Photography
have known each other
and been friends for 5
years crossing paths in
many public circles. Both
have been highly involved
in the community through
the Georgetown Chamber
of Commerce, volunteering, participation in local
events, and just being
present in the town they
love to live and work in.
One day, the two met in
the middle of the intersection of 8th
and Main and exchanged a small
conversation about goals and how
proud they were of one another.
Neither knew two weeks later they
would join up to make those goals
happen.
Kylie has lived in Georgetown
since 1979 and watched the community go through ups and downs

and now thrive. She was selling print
advertising for a local publication
when she first learned of this game
changing product. She is heavily
involved in the community as an Ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce, has been on the promotions
committee for Main Street Board,
and is currently on the board for the
local non-profit, Georgetown Base-
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W
ball Academy. Marketing is a passion
of hers. She loves being a part of this
community and bringing attention
to many local friends/businesses/
clients. She has an extensive background in advertising, has worked for
several local publications, and has
sold promotional products which all
involve helping with vision, logos,
and branding. She loves to help businesses gain recognition and encourage them to support each other.
Todd came to Georgetown in 2011
and immersed himself into the community. He is incredibly talented and
even more humble. He Just “Likes to
take pictures”. Todd has a long-standing passion for photographing people
and telling their stories. He has photographed many artists including Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line,
Willie Nelson, Miranda Lambert, and
George Strait. He has been published in
People, The Wall Street Journal, Country
Weekly, Velvet Dust, Texas Highways,
and Celebrate Austin. Currently, Todd is
the Field Producer and Photographer for The Day Tripper TV
show on PBS. He is a Certified
Google Photographer and also
covers events for Facebook,
Top Austin Model, and Austin
Fashion week.
What is it?
Essentially, it is Google Maps
Street View for the INSIDE of
the business giving everyone
globally the ability to take a
virtual tour and really see the
esthetics of the business they have just
Googled. This means anyone anywhere
can walk through the business and
make the decision to go there. Google
tracks when they start moving and
when they arrive giving the business
owner access to know the demographics of who is frequenting their stores all
while increasing SEO (search engine
optimization) organically. The business
owner pays only a 1x fee for the photo
shoot including a virtual tour and 15 or
more still shots. They are then uploaded
to Google Maps where they will now
live 365 days a year. Within a week of
the shoot, a specialist will come out
and help the business owner add the
tour and photos to any websites and
social marketing and help with search
words to allow the business to get more
direct impressions and more website
traffic. When the job is complete, the

business owner owns the tour and all
the pictures and is free to use them
anywhere they please including in print
advertising. If in the future, an owner
might like to freshen it up, just simply
do another tour or some still shots. Any
future changes will help increase activity and SEO. It’s just simple, affordable,
and essential.
Kylie and Todd have made it their
goal to help business owners GET business. It’s simply a product every business owner needs.
Several local businesses have already

Pioneer
Woman
By Emily Treadway Photos by Tina Lopez
Long before
Katie Couric and
Diane Sawyer
made the news,
Carolyn Jackson
was leading the
way for women
in broadcasting
Imagine Carolyn Jackson’s surprise, more than 30 years
ago, when Larry Hagman, star of I Dream of Jeannie and
the more recent Dallas, opened his hotel room door
wearing nothing but his underwear. At this point in her
career, Carolyn had conducted several celebrity interviews—some she had enjoyed, some she hadn’t—but
she had never been greeted by a celebrity in his undershorts. Carolyn, who is rarely speechless, insists that
she didn’t know what to say, where to look, or how to
react to seeing him dressed, or undressed, as he was.
Finally she blurted out, “Where’s your hat?”
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W 4 5
time when women were generally
expected to be wives and mothers
only. If a woman did have a career, it
was usually as a secretary, a nurse,
or a teacher. “Those didn’t fit me,”
Carolyn emphatically states. “That’s
not what I wanted.”
SETTING OUT

It was definitely the right response.
Larry Hagman laughed and grabbed
his hat (and some clothes), and he
and Carolyn headed to their press
conference at the Film Commission
Convention, hosted that year in San
Antonio. During the five days Carolyn
spent escorting Larry and his wife
around the Alamo City, she learned
that the actor was not only a prankster but also “very nice and sensitive,
not at all like [his Dallas character,] J.
R. Ewing.”
When Carolyn left the University
of Texas in 1949 with a broadcasting degree, she had no idea the
people she would meet or the paths
her future would take. This was a
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W
Upon graduation, Carolyn immediately found a job in her hometown
of Taylor, Texas, with the new radio
station KTAE, but she was there for
just five months. Carolyn had earlier
applied to the prestigious Northwestern NBC School, a summer program taught by NBC personnel. The
program accepted only 100 students,
and surprise! Carolyn was one of
them. So she left Taylor for Chicago
where, unsurprisingly, the men in the
program outnumbered the women:
“There just weren’t that many women going into the field yet.”
Carolyn roomed with two other
young women, who became her
lifelong friends. After completing the
program, the three decided to stay in
Chicago and try their luck. This plan
didn’t go over well with Carolyn’s
mother, who insisted to Carolyn’s father that he tell his daughter to come
home. “My dad was so far ahead of
his time,” Carolyn says. “He said to
Mother, ‘She’s twenty-one years old.
She has a degree from the University of Texas. She is not asking us
for money. She can do whatever she
damn well pleases.’” 

Carolyn lived in Chicago for a year
working for the Leo Burnett Advertising Agency. She enjoyed her job,
but she missed Texas and one young
gentleman in particular. Carolyn returned home to marry Navy veteran
Charles “Chily” Jackson, another man
ahead of his time. Many years later,
Chily would be asked, “What’s it like
being Mr. Carolyn Jackson?” “Chily
never missed a beat,” Carolyn says.
“He replied, ‘It’s great! I taught her
everything she knows.’”
Carolyn took the long route before
arriving at her own TV show. After
the birth of her daughters, Carolyn
put aside her career until they were
old enough to attend school. By then,
Carolyn was ready for another challenge, and Chily and girls were ready
to support her 100 percent. After a
stint substituting at her daughters’
school, Carolyn obtained her teaching degree from Trinity University
and began teaching, a career option she had rejected in her younger
years. Her teaching degree later gave
her an unexpected advantage.
CLIMBING UP
At the time, KLRN (PBS) broadcast
supplemental educational programs
taught by teachers into local classrooms. Knowing of her dual degrees,
Carolyn’s colleagues submitted her
name without her knowledge, and
KLRN called Carolyn to come in for
an audition. Carolyn prepared for the
audition, but KLRN was looking for a
science teacher. “Fortunately, I didn’t
get the job because I didn’t know
anything about science. A lot of kids
were saved that day,” Carolyn jokes.
She returned to teaching, but she
must have made an impression
because a short time later, she was
asked to return to KLRN to head up
the Libraries and Literature series
aimed at third- through sixth-grade
students. She both planned the curriculum and hosted the TV show.
It was while working at PBS that
she received a call, out of the blue,
from Cactus Pryor, an Austin broadcasting legend, asking her to audition for Woman’s World, a half-hour
noontime show on Austin’s only TV

station, KTBC, owned by President
and Lady Bird Johnson. Long before
TV viewers voted for their favorite
contestants on reality TV shows,
Austin area viewers chose Carolyn
Jackson as their favorite TV host for
Woman’s World, which later became
known as The Carolyn Jackson Show.
Carolyn and Cactus became great
friends. Carolyn says, “Cactus used
to love to tell the world, ‘We hired
Carolyn not because she was the
prettiest or the sexiest but because
the viewers liked her the most.
They felt comfortable with her, and
they felt that she might have been a
friend.’” It was a compliment Carolyn
was happy to accept. She treated TV
guests as though they were guests in
her home. Carolyn never wanted to
make them upset or uneasy—“That’s
not the kind of show I did.”
The Carolyn Jackson Show was a
hit, appealing to men, women, and
children. Carolyn’s guests were as
varied as her interests. She hosted
book authors, animal trainers, and
professional athletes. After interviewing the owner of a new ice skating
rink, Carolyn challenged herself
to learn to ice skate. She had the
camera crew film her efforts, and her
viewers avidly followed her progress.
BREAKING BARRIERS
Left: Carolyn with camera man from KTBC TV.
Later, she traveled on movie junkets to interview many major TV and
movie stars of the era, from Richard
Pryor and Bill Murray to a young Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Harrison
Ford, fresh from the set of Star Wars.
But first Carolyn had to convince her
station manager that these interviews were a good idea. He didn’t
believe her viewers would be interested in anything that didn’t pertain
to Austin. Carolyn proved him wrong,
but he made her use her vacation
time for those interviews.
Carolyn had never been offered a
contract for her position. Not only
was she on air for 30 minutes every
weekday, but she had no staff to 

“I didn’t know that’s what I was,
but I was in a man’s world. I
took a lot of flak for doing it,
but it didn’t matter, I wanted to
do it that badly. It was worth all

help with the show behind the
scenes. “I did all the research, I produced it, I decided who was going to
be on the show, and then I booked
them. I did my own makeup, I did it
all.” And she made one-tenth the salary that the male newscasters pulled
down. But Carolyn’s not complaining.
“I wanted the job, and I was able to
do it because my husband was the
primary breadwinner…. I couldn’t
have done the job and financially
supported a family. I couldn’t even
have supported myself!”
Carolyn did ask for a well-deserved
raise, but she was stunned by the
station manager’s response. “You
don’t need more money,” he said.
“You have Chily to take care of you.”
Shaking her head, Carolyn says,
“These gals that are on TV today,
they don’t understand what we had
to go through to make it what it is for
them today.”
Soon Austin had more than a
single TV station, and when an offer came her way with a contract,
a raise, and more creative input,
Carolyn switched networks. It was an
unheard-of move in Austin. Carolyn
was also responsible for another
Austin first. When Carolyn began
working in TV, women weren’t allowed in the studio. “I don’t really

know why,” Carolyn says, “except it
was a man’s world. I was able to get
the first woman on the floor working with the crew. To me, that was a
great accomplishment.”
And Carolyn should know a lot
about accomplishments. She tackled
every goal she set and neatly managed every hurdle in her path. And
she did it all as a wife and mother.
Carolyn may not be Superwoman,
but she’s the next best thing. She’s a
pioneer.
“I didn’t know that’s what I was,”
she says, “but I was in a man’s world.
I took a lot of flak for doing it, but it
didn’t matter, I wanted to do it that
badly. It was worth all I had to sacrifice, and I’m really so grateful that
women have it easier today.” 

Award in 2014 for modeling a healthy
lifestyle, his ruddy face breaks into a
sheepish grin.
“I guess some of our staff put me
up for it,” he says. “They thought it
was something kind of important to
me. I try to be an example but also
verbally encourage other people to
stay healthy and fit. It doesn’t have
to be in a gym. It can be as simple as
walking in your neighborhood. Being
active is the most important thing.”
“Kind of important” understates
Mike’s 30-year dedication to fitness and nutrition. In his first three
decades, he dabbled—winning a
seventh-grade contest shortly after
he started lifting, maintaining perfect
attendance in his UT strength and
conditioning classes, weight-training
with the Austin Police Department.
But in 1985, when he became one
of the original six members of APD’s
mounted unit, conditioning became
a fixture in his life, thanks to a patrol
partner who enjoyed working out. “It
just seems like a natural thing to 

me to work out,” Mike says. “It’s been
part of my life for so long that when I
don’t do it, I don’t feel right, physically
or mentally.”
He focused on weight lifting until he
learned the importance of incorporating
cardiovascular training into his routine.

He hits the gym four to six times a week
and consumes mostly chicken, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk, and lots
of water. And the occasional helping of
pudding.
“It’s all just trying to keep from getting old too soon,” Mike laughs. “You’re

not going to defeat the aging process.
You’re just trying to slow it down a little
bit. As an officer, you deal with people,
and not everybody’s going to cooperate.
Being in shape is super important for
any officer.”

High Tech — High Touch: Modern Commitment to the Future of Banking
HISTORY & EXPERIENCE —
86 YEARS OF STRENGTH AND
COMMUNITY SERVICE
2014 marked 86 years since
Union State Bank (USB) became a
“union” of three small community
banks in 1928 that has succeeded
quite well despite the Depression, recessions and other economic downturns. The hometown bank that first
began on Main Street in Florence
Texas in 1906, now serves customers worldwide with some of the
most advanced technologies. Growing the community is what the team
at Union State Bank thrives on with
eight local Central Texas branches – Killeen, Harker Heights, Temple,
South Killeen, Florence, Liberty Hill,
Georgetown, and Round Rock.
A Killeen group headed by Roy
J. Smith and B.M. “Bernie” Beck
60
acquired the bank in 1955 from the
original Florence families that established it. Union State Bank has been
family and locally owned and
managed since its inception.
Most of our Branch Presidents have
more than 35 years of experience,
as do many other employees
and we know the value in locally
sourced hometown banking that
builds the community from within through loans to local businesses
and participation in key community functions and boards.
HIGH TECH – HIGH TOUCH
Most of the time what distinguishes one bank from another is
Service Service Service — USB is
large enough to supply great high
technology thru internet and mobile
products and small enough to have
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W
Texas Friendly service culture
that you may not be able to get at
smaller or bigger banks, respectively.
WHERE YOU BANK IS IMPORTANT
— BANKERS WITH HEART
SERVING AT THE HEART OF
COMMUNITIES
“Think Global, Bank Local” and
“You Are Your Community” — You
buy “locally sourced” at farmer’s
markets and other small “Mom and
Pop” businesses; so you’ll want to
bank at a true locally based bank
— because your deposits fund
loans to those truly local businesses. We don’t just sit at our desks
— you’ll see us out in the community in diverse activities for charities
serving on economic development
committees and boards and at the
grocery store and church too.
OUR FAMILY BANK IS YOUR FAMILY
BANK
Union State Bank, a Family Owned
Local Community Bank, has a proven track record of reliable Service
and modern Commitment to your
financial needs. We are one of only a
few Family-owned banks. And we want
to have more than a relationship
with our customers; USB offers a full
Commitment to financially secure
your future.
After all, everyone wants the same
thing — a stable organization of professionals who care and who are smart
and experienced enough to secure your
money — along with the convenience
of a personal
relationship banker
that is just a

If taking control of your health is one of your New
Year’s resolutions, then draw inspiration from one
woman’s journey back to wellness
By Cindy Weigand Photos by Andrea Hunter
“My journey began in October of
2013,” Shelly Heller says. The journey
Shelly’s talking about is her way back
to health. Just as journeys take planning and time, so it has been with
Shelly’s recovery. Before October
2013, she had unexplained weight
gain and just didn’t feel well. Finally,
she went to see a doctor, who diagnosed her with Hashimoto’s disease,
an autoimmune disease also known
as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis. “I
began a complete transformation of
my diet and exercise,” recalls Shelly,
who already had a history of doing
triathlons and marathons.
Shelly had received a previous diagnosis of hypothyroidism in 2009. “I
was given a pill and told to take one
every day,” she explains. “I wasn’t
overweight, but over the next four
years, I battled weight and feeling
bad [and had] no energy.” Frustrated,
she found a wellness doctor who, she
says, “forever changed my life.”
Quietly and deliberately, Shelly
explains: “I started with my diet.”
According to her doctor, the excess
weight had caused inflammation
in her body. Shelly’s doctor recom-
mended the autoimmune Paleo diet
(AIP) as part of her treatment. For
Shelly, the eating plan works. “I eat
every two hours to help increase my
metabolism and help keep my blood
sugar at a constant level,” she explains. Included in her diagnosis was
sensitivity to certain foods. “Basically, I’ve cut out gluten, dairy,
soy, and processed sugar,” she
continues. “I eat fruit, vegeta-
bles, grass-fed beef, and open-range
chicken, turkey, and pork. I make
fruit and vegetable smoothies.” Her
new dietary habits required major
changes in how she shops for food.
“I now shop on the perimeter of the
grocery store,” she says. “The 
Shelley before and after
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W 6 3
“If you can, you must.”
middle is where all the processed
food is.” Shelly makes most of her
own meals and must be careful when
eating out, which she rarely does
because of her gluten intolerance.
By changing her diet and “working on the inside” for eight weeks,
Shelly dropped 30 pounds. Satisfied
with her progress, her doctor gave
her permission to add exercise, the
next step in her journey to health and
wellness.
Shelly works in special education at Georgetown High School.
64
Through a GISD initiative to improve
employee fitness, Shelly chose Camp
Gladiator as part of her exercise routine. “Two coworkers and I did this
together to motivate each other to
work out,” she says. “I have to admit,
that that first workout was hard, but
I made it through!” Camp Gladiator
proved a good fit for Shelly. “I love
that it is outdoors and offers a different workout every session. Everyone
works at their level, and the encouragement from the trainers is phenomenal. Each session covers cardio
and strength training, followed by a
cool-down and stretching.”
Shelly has seen far-reaching improvements because of her exercise
routine. “The workout has allowed
me to go from being completely out
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5  G E O R G E T O W N V I E W
of shape to getting my body back to
where I was ten years ago,” she says.
A year into her journey, Shelly has
lost 74 pounds and has started participating in organized runs, recently
completing the 5K Wicked Wine Run
in Spicewood, Texas.
While most journeys end in a destination, Shelly’s journey of wellness
will continue for her lifetime. “There
is no cure for the disease. All I can
do is to manage the symptoms,” she
says matter-of-factly. To stay focused,
she has adopted the credo, “If you
can, you must.” With that attitude and
commitment, Shelly’s journey will
be marked by milestones of lifelong
wellness and fitness. She might even
find that there’s another marathon or
triathlon down the road. 

Practice Drill – Keeping Your Balance
By Bill Easterly
With 30 years experience in golfing, Bill Easterly has spent 17 years as a pro player
from the US to Australia, winning the Gulf Coast Invitational twice, and three times
on the Sr Circuit. Bill has spent 10 years helping others enjoy the sport. Here, he
gives you priceless tips – free – every month – to improve YOUR game.
A
re you losing your balance as you finish your
swing? This could be a
result of sliding toward
the target instead of
simply turning toward the target. Try
making some slow motion swings
and stop at your finish. Check to
make sure your shoulders and hips
are square to the target. You should
also be on your right toe and your
weight should have transferred to the
outside of your left foot. Be sure you
are standing straight up like you are
facing against a wall and not leaning
through the wall. If you have a fulllength mirror, try this: Act as though
you are going to make a swing with
the mirror being the target. After you
have finished your follow through,
stop and hold your position. Look
at the mirror and see if you are now
facing the mirror with your hips
and shoulders square to the target.
Remember to have your belt buckle
toward the target and not facing to
the right. If your hips are pointing to
the right, then you have stopped your
lower body turn and have finished
with only your hands. Many times
this is the cause of you leaning
too far forward with your upper
body which will pull you off
balance. Try this drill and
I think you will like the
results. 

Add a little zest to the ordinary
By Nikki Elkjer Photos by Carol Hutchison
T
he most important meal of the day? Breakfast. I never miss it. When
the weather is cold, enjoying breakfast while still cuddled up in pajamas is my idea of perfection. Breakfast not only gets the metabolism
going—it marks the official start to the day. Take time to prepare a
well-rounded meal with fresh ingredients. Enjoy your coffee or hot tea
as the eggs sizzle and the waffles crisp. Life can stop long enough for you to set
your day in motion the right way. 

parting shot
Keep Your
Angels Close
I
first saw her in 2003 in a birdbath
at our new home, the day we
moved in. Her concrete skin was
cracked and worn, the details of
her eyes, lips, and wings intact.
Our century-old Victorian home
was a small piece of history in our
town of Valley View, Texas. We were
the third owners of the home in a
hundred years. I’ll never know how
many years the angel had been in
that same spot. I would often admire
her from our dining room through the
long, narrow, lace-curtained window.
She sat contentedly in the center
of the birdbath, hands in her lap,
eyes closed—almost radiant. Always
believing she belonged in that spot, I
never touched her.
A few years later, my husband took
a job that brought us to Georgetown.
We moved out of our old Victorian
home immediately, but finding a
buyer for it took two long years.
The angel remained in her birdbath
during those years as each wouldbe buyer inspected the home. On
the final bittersweet day we owned
that house, we stopped by to make
sure we hadn’t left anything behind.
After locking the door behind me, I
remembered the angel. So I walked
around to the birdbath to see her one
last time. I stood there for several
minutes, knowing she’d stay in her
spot, but suddenly knowing this, too:
I didn’t want to say goodbye to her.
In an instant I grabbed the angel and
took her with me. She’s still with
me today, in my herb garden, eyes
closed, hands in her lap, among the
parsley and thyme.
