Judy Barry cringes whenever she sees two women at an elegant black-tie affair wearing identical gowns. "I'm embarrassed for them," Barry says. "I've seen women seated at the same table in matching dresses." Barry is so determined to avoid a similar fate, she designs her own glamorous gowns, traveling to Hong Kong to oversee production of her sequined sheaths. Her friends, seeing Barry show up at galas in one slinky, sparkling dress after another, commissioned her to make gowns for themselves.

At a recent board meeting we heard the resignation of Supt. Mary Beth Wolford. She states she will stay to see the magnet/restructuring in place. I support her decision to hang in there until December. This was her dream to create a ninth- through 12th-grade high school and a magnet. You know that old saying, if you're going to dream, dream big. Well, she did. The magnet accompanied with restructuring has reached the million-dollar mark. School board members and administrators have been spending money like water since last year on this dream.
