Burke and James A. Butcher, two prominent native sons of Gilmer County, were jointly hon- bred at a regular monthly meeting of the Gilmer County Masonic Lodge No. 118 held in Glenville on April 13, 2004. The Deputy District Grand Master for the 11 th Masonic District of West Virginia,-Richard Kelley of West Union, presented Burke and Butcher with certificates memorializing their 50 years of membership in the Glenville-based Blue Lodge. Both certificates bore the seal and signa- ture of Robert M. Vincent, Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of West Vir- ginia based, in Charleston. Burke is a long-time Gilmer County civic leader, merchant and farmer. He represented Gilmer and four other counties in the West Virginia House of Delegates over a 13-year period. As a legislator, Burke distinguished himself as chair of the powerful House Finance Committee. He served for six years as Executive Director of the West Virginia Regional Jail & Cor- rections Authority. In that capacity, he oversaw the design and construc- honored Lodge tion of several regional jails and the state's maximum security prison at Mount Olive. Burke also has 11 years of service with the federal government to his credit. Over that period, he directed 47 farm service offices throughout West Virginia for the U.S. Depart- ment of Agriculture. Butcher left Gilmer County after graduating from Glenville State Col- lege in 1953. He served as a teacher and principal in the Webster County public school system before moving to Petersburg in 1958, where he as- sumed the post of Assistant Superin- tendent of Grant County Schools. He later taught at Shepherd College and at The American University in Washington, D.C. In 1968, Butcher assumed the Presidency of Shepherd College. He remained in that position until his retirement in 1989. Butcher holds a master's degree from West Virginia University and a doctoral degree from the American Univer- sity. His brother, Robert J. Butcher, and two nephews, R. Terry Butcher and Timothy B. Butcher, all of whom are Masons, reside in Glenville.

MARGE BURKE One of the most interesting things I have found out about my life is that as my body seems to get older and older, my spirit seems to keep getting younger and younger. As my hair grays and my skin wrinkles, my heart sings and my soul dances. As my body slows down, my love speeds up. As my brain gets more forgetful, my soul gets more mindful. I think all of this is because the closer my body gets to death, the more aware my soul becomes of what it means to live. It has taken me many years, for instance, to fully realize just how im- portant and enjoyable it is to give someone a hug. In fact, giving out some hugs can be the most important thing you do all day. The same is true for saying, "I love you." Nothing you do at work today will be as valuable as letting those you care about know just how much you love them. This is also true for singing, dancing, laughing and loving. These things add more joy to your hours, life to your days, and length to your years than any- thing else you can do. You can even mix them up into a glorious whirl- wind of delight. I know that my own singing and dancing tends to bring out laughter in others for some reason. Children seem to know all of these things instinctively, but it often takes us adults many years to get our souls young enough to realize it as well. Don't let your soul age with your body then. Keep it always full of love, joy, youth and delight. Share its en- ergy, vitality, and goodness with ev- eryone you meet. Let it make your old body into a singing, dancing, laugh- ing, loving, and hugging machine. Let it always be full of God's ageless love, endless joy, and limitless light. Let it live to the fullest every single day of this life and grow ever more loving, joyous, and at one with GOd for the next. Annual Youth West Virginia's premier teen anti- tobacco event, Raze On, is slated for June 13-16 at the Univeristy of Charleston, and it's missing only one thing - a teen to keep everyone hip to what's happening during the confer- ence. Raze, the event sponsor and West Virginia's teen-led tobacco preven- tion movement, is holding auditions for a Master of Ceremonies to be the up-front person at all general sessions and infuse the sessions with energy and enthusiasm, as well as be a role model for attendees. The event brings together teens from across the state to teach them how to fight the lies of Big Tobacco. It shows teen Raze members how to educate their peers about how Big Tobacco targets teens, gives them training in how to conduct anti-tobacco activiites called commotions, and informs them about the tactics Big Tobacco uses to market its deadly product. The emcee will be responsible for hosting large group activities, being familiar with the conference sched- ule, making announcements, and keep things fun and energized. They should be ready to be a role model for other teens attending the event. The deadline for applying for the position is April 23.
