JANE ELSIE "SHAINA" (JAMES) THOMPSON: I was born on December 21, 1949 to Howard Park Barnhill and Lillian (Baylinson) Barnhill, now Lillian James. I have epilepsy and asthma, along with severe allergies and chronic bronchitis. I was Bas Mitzvohed on February 22, 1963. I am the recipient of the "Shofar Award" for outstanding work with children through the Synagogue and Boy Scouts, dated December 4, 1981. I was the only known female scouter to receive it at that time. I have also had the distinction of receiving the "Award of Merit" for our scouting area, December 19, 1986, as well as several other commendations. I went back to college and received my A.A. degree in Humanities in January of 1980 and my B.A. Degree in Native American Studies, with emphasis in Education, and my "Ryan Multiple Subject Credential" as an early childhood emphasis specialist in August of 1984. I completed "Advanced Scoutmaster Training", normally reserved for men. It was a two part course and I was the first out of 49 to complete and receive the "Wood Badge Award" on October 12, 1987. I was the first female Scoutmaster registered in our area. I was also the first female cubmaster, a job I held for ten years.

I go by my Hebrew name of Shaina. My son Joseph Thompson was born on August 7, 1974 and goes by the Hebrew name of "Josel". My daughter, Rebecca Anne Thompson, named for my grandmother, was born April 4, 1976 and goes by the Hebrew name of "Rifka Chaiya".

My husband, William Wayne Thompson, Sr., is a disabled warehouseman. His three children by a previous marriage were raised by us. We now have five granchildren between the ages of one and six years old. I am beginning my own day care at the moment (Fall of 1988) and am recovering from a badly broken ankle.

I want to relate a story about my great-grandfather, Sam Lazarus. I remember when I was very little, he got terribly overwrought when I put a stamp on an envelope upside-down. When he finally calmed down, he explained that in Russia, when he lived there, putting a stamp with the Tsar's picture on it upside-down, could mean your death.
