Arson to blame in ticket booth fire


By JIMMY CLARITY
Today Reporter
ALACHUA A ticket booth at
the Santa Fe High School football
complex caught fire Nov. 25, and
officials are investigating what they
suspect is foul play. The school was
closed at the time for Thanksgiving
break and no one was injured.
According to 911 calls, residents
witnessed two people running from
the small-building fire that began
shortly before noon.


"It was an intentionally set fire;
that is about all we can report," said
Alachua County Fire Marshal Mark
Smith.
Santa Fe High School Principal
Bill Herschleb described the incident
was "wasteful."
"Folks are shocked.
"A lot of students, parents and
faculty are dismayed that someone
would destroy school property."

While the future of
the small, 288-square-foot,
concrete. block building is
uncertain, Herschleb said
he is working with school
board officials and others
to find a way to rebuild the
ticket booth."
Thebuilding itselfis not
all that was lost. Herschleb
Said an estimate of the
contents is reaching into
the $10,000 range. That's
about what it would cost
to replace what was inside,
including a large tumbling
mat used by cheerleaders


and specialized padding
used on football equipment.
"I personally have
doubts that any part of
the ticket booth can be
salvaged," he said.
The arson may have
marked .the first instance
of vandalism of the high
school's football ticket
booth, but in recent years
.a baseball concession
building had been
burglarized.
Thanks to a recent
replacement of the football
press box, the high school
was able to add an additional
ticket booth. The former
press box was moved down-
to the north entry to the
stadium and converted into
a ticket booth. Herschleb
said about half of the ticket
sales last season were.
made in that smaller wood
building.
Rescue workers from
LaCrosse, High Springs
and Alachua County
assisted in fighting the
blaze. Traffic on Highway
441 slowed considerably
as onlookers observed the
engulfed building from
their vehicles. The concrete
booth is generally used to
collect tickets for admission
to games and events held at
the field.
The state fire marshal
is actively investigating the
incident.

2012


By KEES BOER
Entertainment Writer
Have you ever heard
the root meaning of the
word "amuse?" It comes
from two words, the word
"a" and "muse." The word
"a" means "not" much like
we use the prefixes "un,
dis, non" and the word
"muse" refers to the word
for "think." So, the root
meaning of the word amuse
or amusement is "not to
think." That's what this
movie is all about. If you
want to go to the theater,
sit back and just enjoy a
movie and all of its special
effects, go see 2012. You
will feel like you have
seen one of the best movies
you ever saw. It is pure
entertainment. Don't think
too much about the film,
though.
For one, the whole
premise of the movie is that
in old Mayan documents,
the year 2012 is predicted
as the end of the world.
What is equally true is that
the same Mayan documents
have all sorts of predictions
post 2012 too, where the


earth would be fine!
The story is a basically
about a man named Jackson
Curtis, (John Cusack) who
is divorced, but wants
to take his children to
Yellowstone National park.
Curtis wakes up late, his car
doesn't sta'~it d everything
sees c'to-'io'wrong, but
overall nothing out of the
ordinary.
But because of
the disasters that start
happening, he ends up
taking the whole family
with him to escape the
end of the world. The
entire earth is shifting and
earthquakes and massive
tsunamis are destroying the
planet. As a matter of fact,


City of Alachua

Advisory Board

Vacancy
Parks & Recreation

The Alachua City Commission is accepting
applications for five (5) vacancies on its Park
and Recreation Advisory Board. Appointments
will be for staggered three-year terms. Interested
applicants must be willing to attend meetings on at
least a quarterly basis and have a keen interest in
parks and recreation. To apply, you may obtain an
application and information from either our website
www.cityofalachua.com or contact the Recreation
Director at (386) 462-1610 to obtain a copy.
Applications must be received by the City on or
before December 11, 2009 for consideration. You
may send your application Attention: Recreation
Director, P.O. Box 9, Alachua, FL 32616.'
(Published: Alachua County Today November
12, 19, 26 and December 03, 2009)


the tsunamis are really the
things that totally destroy
the earth. (Interestingly,
this is one' way that the
Bible teaches that the earth
will not be destroyed by!)
At the end, the story
becomes reminiscent of the
flood in the Bible. There
are even arks built in China
for a select few people to be
rescued as the vast majority
of humanity dies in the
devastation. This is why
you don't want to think too
much in this movie.
Although the film
is basically a collection
of special effects and
catastrophes, in the midst of
this; some of the characters
demonstrate real heroism
in being willing to give up
their lives for one another.
Don't expect this to be big
on character development
though, but the little that
there is, is well done.
The film has several
profanities and also a
profane gesture.. It's
appropriately rated PG-13.
I wouldn't take smaller
children to see this film, but
as long as you check out
your thinking at the theater
door, this is a great film to
enjoy.

The commission
approved the ordinance 4-1
on first reading. The second
reading of the ordinance
will be on Dec. 15.
If passed on second
reading, the sign ordinance
would take effect
immediately. Businesses
and residents will have 10
years to comply. Smyth
said with the extended
advance notice, there won't
be a sudden cost burden
on businesses, and they
have time to plan ahead
and replace signs at a more
convenient date.
Vice-mayor William
Carlton cast the only vote
against the ordinance.
"My concern is we got
a 25-page document here
on signs. Our old ordinance
was a three-page ordinance
and covered just about
everything that we needed
covered," Carlton said.


overly complex
"We need to take what
we already have, see what
we need to add' to it and
then keep life simple."
Smyth disagreed..
"Granted it's more than
Hawthorne needs today.
But we're not.planning for
today; we're planning for
the next 10, 15, 20 years."
He added, "The current
sign code is barely able to
keep up with what we got
know."
Smyth said the sign
ordinance will cut down on
bandit signs, or snipe signs,
which are signs often made
of paper, cardboard, wood
and metal. They are tacked
or nailed onto trees or other
objects.
Smyth said the old sign
ordinance did not address
.these types of signs, but the
new one prohibits them in
the city.
Pole signs will also


be prohibited. A pole sign
is defined as any sign
supported by at least one
upright pole, pylon or post,
which is secured to ;the
ground. Also, the bottom of
a pole sign exceeds two feet
above the finished grade
level.
To carry out the
ordinance, a code
enforcement officer will
work to bring signs into
compliance by issuing
warnings initially and then
citations if sign owners
don't comply, Smyth said.
S"We're trying to
make the community
more attractive. We want
to attract business here.
We need to be business
friendly."

Familiar face leavecitymanager's office


Living to love

Empowered to manage the emotional pain of grief and loss through the holidays


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -
There will soon be a new
voice on the receiving end
of the telephone in the High
Springs city manager's
,office.
The familiar greeting
chirped for five years by
Sandi Richmond and heard
by nearly every caller
phoning the office since
then was heard for the last
time Wednesday, when
Richmond worked her last
day as executive secretary
for the city manager's
office..
Upon ending her
work with the city,
Richmond will take a seat
as executive director of
No More Homeless Pets,
a non-profit organization
aimed at eliminating the
euthanization of healthy'
pets in Alachua County.
"It's very sad to leave,
but I feel like I'm coming
full circle with my work
now," Richmond said. ,
And that work
towards improving animal
welfare in the community
has spanned decades in
Alachua County.
Originally from Ft.
Lauderdale, Richmond
moved to Boston where
she ran an art gallery
after graduating for the
University of Florida. She
then returned to Gainesville
in 1992 and relocated to
High Springs in 2001.
In her 14 years
working for the Alachua
County Humane Society,
Richmond has served as
executive director, animal
cruelty investigator,
humane-care educator
and currently works as the
society's president.
She took a job as City
Manager Jim Drumm's
executive secretary in
2001, only months after
Drumm began his work
with the city, and brought
ideas for combining animal
welfare with government
legislation.
Her familiarity with
local government and her
work with the Humane
Society helped pass
legislation in 2002 that


TRACEY MCMANUSIAlachua County bTday
City of High Springs employee Sandi Richmond will be
leaving her position in the city manager's office to join
No More Homeless Pets, a non-profit animal welfare
organization.


banned pig gestation crates,
which confine pregnant
pigs and prevent them from
turning around or lying
down.
"Florida voters voted
against that inhumane and
cruel practice," Richmond
said of the legislation
change. "Alachua County'
has always been very
compassionate, and I'm
proud to be a part of that."
In her work with the
Humtane Society, Richmond
also helped create the
Disaster Animal Response
Team, which established
the first animal friendly
shelters for pets and owners
at Santa Fe High School
during Hurricane Floyd.
The program also helped
pet owners during Flagler
County's evacuations
during its July 2000 fires.
Drumm said apart
from her regular work
of preparing reports,
minutes from meetings
and other administrative
duties, Richmond has been
essential, in jumpstarting
several city programs.
He said she located the
resources to utilize county
prisoners to remodel areas
of City Hall, and has been a
leader in the city's Farmers
Market and Community
Garden projects. She also
prevented city residents
from paying up to $10,000
for installation fees
by tracking down and


notifying those who had
not yet signed the sewer
system easements, which
essentially are permission
slips for the city to use
federal funding to pay
for work on a resident's
property.
"She is more of our
goodwill ambassador,"
Drumm said. "She wears
a lot of hats with all she
does."
Drumm said
applications to fill
Richmond's spot are being
accepted through Friday
and that although the city
commission has suggested
cross training employees
to reduce spending,
the executive secretary
position is one that can't be
condensed.
Now as Richmond
prepares'to take. on a new
hat of executive director of
a county wide organization,
she said her main priorities
now will be outreach and
awareness of spaying and
neutering pets as well
as creating the group's
database and developing
policies.
"I've grown as the
community has grown,"
Richmond 'said. "High
Springs has hit the ground
running. I'll really miss it."

It is that time of year
again when families gather
to give thanks, celebrate life
and make merry. Festive
gatherings, well wishes,
smiles, greetings and the
making of memories can
take us by storm. Some
people dread this time of
year, when their hearts.may
be reminded repeatedly of
the knots that accompany
grief and loss. It can be a
time of heartache, anxiety
and intense pain.
For the mother who
has lost a child, to a sibling
who has lost a friend, to the
lover who is now lonely,
the holidays can magnify
the emotional pain of grief'
and loss. For the wife of
the service man whose
body is now draped in our
country's flag, to the son or
daughter of a cancer victim,
the holidays bring sadness,
tears and sometimes
despair.
However, for those who
want to launch an all-out
assault on pain.and anguish,
there is an opportunity
during this time of year
to' have a different grief
experience. Even if they
have only a thimble full of
energy, they may want to
fight. They may want some
control. They may want
something different than
pain. No one can minimize
the experience of emotional
pain of grief and loss, there
is encouragement for those
who are tired of the effects
of grieving and have an
immense desire to beat it
back (if only for a little
while). This is a possibility,
a ray of borrowed hope.
This is permission to honor
the loved one who has died.
If you are the griever, you
have permission to live to'
love.
For some of you,
managing your emotional
pain is ajob-the worst job
you will ever have. But as
we .move into this season,
you can take a vacation.

What surprises await under the tree


The countdown is on and the mad rush is
full speed ahead.
Everywhere you turn there's a sign a .
sign there are only so many shopping days
until Christmas. And the meaning is, if
you haven't done your holiday gift buying,
you're in serious trouble. The sense of
urgency and downright panic is mounting if
you haven't put a dent in your
shopping list.
Now, for some folks, this is
just so much falderal because, .
either they have finished their -.
,shopping, and I know some
annoying overachievers who
do so by October each year,
or they have no intention of
shopping .anyway, pushing
offthe task on their spouse or V
sibling.
From experience, I can
say that one of the wonderful
things about a big family is
that it just gets bigger and Ellen Bol
bigger... and so does the list
of gifts to buy. Now don't get me wrong,
I'm no Scrooge. And those who know me
well, also know that I love to shop...usually.
It's just that this time of year the lines
are hideously long, parking spaces are at a
premium or non-existent, every third person
seems to have walking pneumonia with all
the hacking and sneezing, and the overall
effort involved in shopping is weighing
heavy. The fact is that I'm not a good line
lingerer. In other words, if the line to the
cash register is over three deep, I'm just not
into it.
I know this because when faced with a
small army in front of me buying a gazillion
items of which at least one is without a
price tag my armful of carefully selected
items are placed on the floor and are scooted
forward toward the counter with successive


nudges from my feet as I ever so slowly
work my way toward the register. As the.
minutes pass, the wrist comes up and the
glances at the watch become more frequent,
the mind begins to wander and the toe
begins to tap to the tune of Grandma Got
Run Over by a Reindeer. A completely
unpleasant experience for me and those
around me I'm sure. And for
this I apologize.
I've tried Internet shopping
and have met with measured
success. For sure, there are
S no lies,,and no problems with
parking, but it's hard to tell if
the light blue flannel nightie
with Bullwinkle the Moose
Emblazoned on the yoke is
something Aunt Gussie would
really like. And beyond'that,'
when the decision is made and
it's time to click and place the
selected item in the electronic
ikari shopping cart icon, I've been
bombarded with 'item no
longer available, make another selection"
more times than I care to remember.
Well, thanks a lot.
Browse through the pages, make another
selection, place it in the cart and again,
"item no longer available, make another
selection."
And this isn't some off the wall company
in Timbuktu. These are major retailers with
some apparently serious inventory issues.;
So after much thought, I've decided to
do the shopping locally in my own home.
That's right.
All the wonderful presents that family
members have gifted me with over the past
few years that have received no usage are
up for grabs.
Yes indeed, I'm into recycling and
regifting this year.


No lines, no-carts, no parking spaces to
haggle with, no sneezers to dodge, and best
of all...no bills to pay.
I am letting everyone know who receives
one of these special gifts that it in no way
means I,love you any less. After all, I am
only giving to you what someone else gave
so lovingly to me.
I'm just sharing the love.
And I promise to follow the proper
etiquette of gift recycling, so as to avoid any
embarrassing moments that may make some
relatives uncomfortable.
I will rewrap and, remove the old gift
card.
I will fnake every effort to not recycle the
gift to the original owner, although without
adequate records, this could be difficult.
I will not pass on a hand-me-down -
these gifts will be as pristine as they were
when I originally received them.
I will not recycle a gift that is over two
years old, except for that fruitcake, because
who can tell anyway?
I will however, if receiving a recycled,
gift, head to eBay and sell it for some cold
cash that will help finance my trip to all
the after Christmas sales after the lines
are gone, of course. And I will not hold it
against anyone if I spy one.of my recycled
gifts listed by a relative on eBay.
I do ask that this year, when choosing a
gift, remember to buy something you would
like to have. Because you may get it back
next year.
Oh, what surprises await under the
Christmas tree this year!

Combs working on next book


her to write a book about her husband's
work, which would become her first novel,
"The Answer."
"I thought it was a great idea," said
Comb's husband, John.
What intrigued her the most about his
work was the determination to find the
answer to why the aircraft crashed.
"If you don't find an answer, someone
else is going to die," John said.
John spent 39 years in the Navy, 25 of
them as an aircraft investigator.
"I loved my work," John said. "I loved
every minute of it."
John's Navy career ended when he
suffered a heart attack that left him unable
do much more than sit up in a chair and
talk.
While caring for her husband, Margaret
talked to him and collected his stories for
the book. Margaret said she didn't have to
go far; she just needed to listen.
"I had my research right there."
John had gone on more than 100
aircraft investigations. Margaret drew
on the stories of those investigations and
added elements of fiction, also.
Her inspiration for writing was
biographies, and she considers this book to
be a biography of her husband.
"I particularly like biographies of


people who have demonstrated' in their
Lives a commitment to something unique
or very important."
SMargaret finished the first draft and
used her connections in the entertainment
industry to get a movie offer.
She said she'd love to see the book
become a movie, but declined the movie
option because the studio wanted to turn
her husband's character into an Indiana
Jones superhero type of character.
"To me a good character is human,
which means they have to be flawed. They
have to have all of the human qualities."
The book then lay around for seven or
eight years until her husband urged her to
finish it.
She did finish it, signed a distribution
deal with Amazon BookSurge and now, the
book is in its second printing. She said she
used the pen name M.C. Combs because
she thought readers might be hesitant to
buy a military book by a woman.
During the time the book remained
unfinshed, "The Answer" became more
than just a story about an accident
investigator.
"The story is an essay on ethics,"
Combs said.
As she became aware that the ethic
of truth above all was given less and less


importance in modem society, she decided
to make it a much more substantial part of
the book.
Her next book
Combs is halfway through her next
book, which is about five generations of
women in her family. In many'ways, it's a
book about her story.
It discusses the barriers women had to
break down throughout the years starting
with her grandmother, who died needlessly
while giving birth to Combs' mother, and
ending with her granddaughter, whose
generation is so removed from the struggle
for rights that they may not even be aware
there was a struggle in the first place.
She said one of the reasons she writes
is to leave something behind after she is
gone.
"Some of things that I cherish the
absolute most among my possessions are
my great-grandfather's writings and my
grandmother's diary. My mother was a
beautiful writer, and she wrote letters that I
can still quote verbatim."
"The Answer" can be bought on
Amazon or at www.theanswerthebook.

Dairy farmer leading the herd

HIGH SPRINGS For
something as natural and'
pure as a dairy cow, a herd
of 2,000 still gives Dave
Sumrall plenty of waste to

The liquid and solid

with the issue earned
him the Commissioner's

Former Alachua


commissioner to be


honored Monday

By PATRICIA HOYOS
S Today Reporter
ALACHUA Alachua Commission Chambers will
be named in honor of former longtime city commissioner
James A. Lewis.
Lewis will be honored Monday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. at
City Hall. Members of the public are encouraged to attend.
S He served Alachua as a
Commissioner for 42 years after
being first elected in 1967. His
final term erded last April. Before
leaving the position, he was one of
the longest-standing elected officials
in the nation.
S"He has been a visionary for our
Lewis community and led our city through
many difficult and challenging
periods for which we are all forever grateful," said interim
city manager Traci Cain.
Some of his contributions to the city are his leading
efforts to provide important infrastructure to attract
commercial enterprises and help guide the city in its recent
development growth. He has helped shape Alachua into
what it is today, Cain added.
Lewis was married to wife Jackie for 52 years until
her passing last February and has two children, Lacey
Lewis and Jim Lewis.
Cain said the Alachua Commission is committed to
honoring Lewis to show their appreciation for his loyal
service. The city wants to show its sincere appreciation for
his work.

and national districts having the same properties. City
Planner Christian Popoli said the district stretches from
Main Street to Ninth Street and to properties on either side
of First Avenue with a majority of those properties zoned
commercially.
City Manager Jim Drumm said much of the concern
over whether or not to expand the districts comes from
discussion over the financial consequences. He said those
for expanding boundaries expect it would help preserve
the historic structures and raise real estate values. Those
against it fear new guidelines would create more costs
to repair homes and wonder if the additional benefits are
worth stricter regulations.
"In the current district, a structure already there is
grandfathered," Drumm said, noting current designs would
not have to change if standards are altered. "It's when
it comes time to make a repair, time to change shingles
or change windows out. If you decide in your Victorian
house you might want to put a Miami window that won't
match. That's when it comes in, if your renovation would
change the current historic look of the home."
And as of now, there are no guidelines for an incoming
builder to look at if they want to develop in the historic

district. Basically, builders have to create a design
themselves based on what they envision as a historic
look, and the Historic Preservation Board either denies or
approves it based on the visual appeal instead of concrete
rules, Drumm said.
In comparison, Newberry's 26-year-old historic district
is one section that stretches six blocks by three blocks and
is made up of about 80 percent residential property and 20
percent commercial property, said Newberry City Planner
Lowell Garrett.
He said the design is based on four to five basic models
of 'cracker vernacular' architecture, which is a mixture
of pioneer design, Victorian architecture, and 1920s and
1930s craftsman style homes.
Garrett said the biggest problems Newberry has faced
with regulating design standards are the losses of buildings
through attrition and age. Trying to rebuild a structure with
new materials to stand next to original buildings a century
old poses a problem for consistency.
"In our downtown, we've lost several brick buildings
just in fires in the last 30 years, so those, types of things
are tough to replace," he said. "How do you replicate
something like that? Even if modem architecture tries to
melt in with history, you don't get an exact replica."
As for property owners whose buildings would be
subject to new guidelines in High Springs, one business
owner said her main concern is how accurately residents
are being informed of the changes.
Antoinette Hunt, owner of Talk of the Town Salon on
First Avenue in the heart of the historic district, said she is
frustrated with actual code enforcement. While the historic
codes have been set up since the 1980s, Hunt said business
owners feel uninformed of the changes and enforcement
of codes.
"In the past year, every sign had to be painted on
windows in the historic district, and they wanted you to
comply," Hunt said. "There was no vinyl lettering allowed,
but I go downtown and see new businesses and they have
-vinyl lettering. The city isn-t rolling out the red carpet for

God manifest in the flesh


There are many areas
in Scripture that people
find difficult to understand,
largely because they don't
compare the different
parts of Scripture and
are unwilling to accept
truths that go against their
preconceived ideas. If the
Pharisees in the Gospel
of Matthew 22:34 f.f. had


thought about
the writings of
the prophets,
they could
have seen.
that the Lord
displayed all the
characteristics
of the Messiah.
It didn't matter
if He talked
about Himself
as God, or as
man, or about
reigning or
suffering,
He was the
person that
the prophecies


call him Lord, saying, The
LORD said unto my Lord,
Sit thou on my right hand,
till I make thine enemies
thy footstool? If David
then called him Lord, how
is he his son?" (Matthew
22:43, f.f.) Not one of the
Pharisees could answer
Him; there are Christians
today who couldn't answer


.. this question.
It's

referred to.. What angered
the Pharisees most was
Jesus' claim of equality
with God. Because of this
claim, they finally put Him
to death. But still a few days
before they would crucify
Him they were asking Him
questions. So Jesus put a
question to them. It really
wasn't a hard one and
they could've answered
it easily, if they had

The question was, "How

future, whom he called
his Lord and Governor.
They had a clearly stated
prophecy from Isaiah: ...
the person who was to be
"a child born and a son
given, was no other than
the Mighty God;"(Isaiah
9:6) and then "the child
that should be born of a
virgin should be called
Emmanuel, God with us."
(Isaiah 7:14) Scriptures
told them that the M4essiah
must be David's Lord,
because of his divine


nature,. being both the
Lord of heaven and earth
but, because of His human
nature from the lineage of
David, He was truly and
properly David's Son.
This truth is confirmed
even more in the New
Testament when our Lord
spoke of His own existence
before His incarnation,
saying, "Before Abraham
was, I am." He declared
that "he had a glory with
the Father before the world
was;" and that "He and the
Father were One." In a
vision to the Apostle John,
He spoke these words, "I
am Alpha and Omega, the
beginning and the ending,
saith the Lord; which is,
and which was, and which
is to come, the Almighty."
(Revelation 1:8) What
declares His Divinity more
clearly than that? Saint
Paul says, that "being
in the form of God, and
counting it not robbery to
be equal with God, he made
himself of no reputation,
(he emptied himself or
divested himself of all his
glory,) and took upon him
the form of a servant, and
was made in the likeness
of men." (Philemon 2:6,
7) From these and similar
passages, it's evident that
He is "God manifest in
the flesh," (1 Timothy
3:16) even "God over all,
blessedfor ever. (Romans
9:5) So you see that He is
in truth, both "the Root and


the Offspring of David."
(Revelation 22:16)
The Pharisees didn't
understand the dual nature
of the Messiah being both
human and divine, so they
weren't able to answer the
Lord. No man can answer
the question, except
by -acknowledging the
Divinity of Christ. Some
might say that the passage
the Lord uses proves His
inferiority to the Father,
because it's the Father
who "exalts Him Jo His
right hand, and puts all His
enemies under his feet;"
but I pay that, as man,
and as Mediator, He was
subject to the Father's will;
but at the same time being
God, He is equal with the
Father, and one with Him.
As Mediator, Christ is the
Father's "servant," sent to
do His will. But if we're
so blind that we can't
distinguish between His
essential nature as God
and His assumed office
as Mediator, it's hopeless
to think that we could
ever answer the question
ourselves, or understand
the solution that Scripture
gives.
Believe in Jesus with
your whole heart. If,
as you have seen, He is

County Today December

Living on her family's farm in 1814 Vermont, the
war seems far away to young Violet Howard. As the war
draws nearer so does a song that would later be of great
importance, penned first as a poem during a nearby naval
battle in Baltimore, Maryland.
As Violet learns the words of this patriotic song, she
doesn't know that those words will one day become her
country's national anthem.
"Beautiful Music" tells the story of how a little tune,
written in the midst of battle, became the greatest song
in America.


Chapter Two Iby Russ and Kay Hively


Violet had run down the hillside as fast
as she could. She made it to the sheep
pen longbefore the sheep had been
driven into the clearing around the
farmyard. She was huffing and puffing;
trying to catch her breath as she looked
up the path for the new flock.

Her bonnet had fallen off the back of her
head and was hanging around her neck.
Violet knew her mother would be upset
if she saw her without her bonnet on,
so she hurriedly pulled it back on.

The herd was getting closer to the yard,
but she still couldn't see it. Violet could
hear Molly yapping at the animals and
the sheep bleating as they were pushed
forward down the path. The sounds of
sheep being moved by a dog were as
beautiful as music to Violet.

Suddenly the sheep burst through the
trees and spilled into the yard. Violet
quickly opened the gate to "-e prri. hl:nly
.> '. '.


spotted the open gate and knew'exactly
what to do. As the dog worked the herd
toward the pen, Violet held the gate open
and waved to her father and brother as
they walked behind the flock. Once the
last sheep was guided into the pen, Violet
and Thomas closed the gate behind them.

Violet ran to her father and gave him a
.big hug. He picked her up and swung her
around in the air and set her down on the
top rail of the fence. Violet was glad her
father and brother were home. Both men
looked tired but she could see they were
relieved to be home.

She looked through the fence at the new
sheep milling around in the pen. Her
Father explained this was a breed of sheep
called Merino. A man named William
Jarvis had brought this breed of sheep to
Vermont a few years ago all the way from
Portugal. Violet had heard about the
country of Portugal, bUt couldn't
remember much
'abit it. .


Her father went on to explain these
sheep produced some of the finest wool
in the world. Violet looked at her father's
face and realized he was absolutely
beaming with pride as he talked about
his new flock.

Violet's mother appeared at the door
of the house and waved to her son ind
husband and told them supper would be
ready soon. She smiled at everyone and
turned back into the house. Her mother
had been worrying about them being
gone, and Violet could see she was happy
they were home. Violet decided to follow
her mother inside. As Violet stepped into
the house her mother looked up at her
and their eyes locked on each other. Her
mother calmly said, "Now it's your turn."
