Boukari, Coerper sworn in Monday

Helle, Wilford in run-off election Tuesday


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - There were
many firsts at the City of Alachua's
commission meeting Monday evening.
Commissioner Gib Coerper took
his oath of office to become mayor
after running unopposed in the first
election for the mayoral seat in the
city's history. The change results from
a city charter amendment adopted by
voters last year, which substitutes a
commission seat with that of the mayor


I instead of allowing
, the five elected
commissioners to
select the mayor
from amongst
themselves.

of office to become a commissioner

Camp Safe Haven offers support for


children
Special to
Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE
Children do not grieve like
adults do, and unless you've
experienced a loss at their
age, you can only imagine
how it feels. Haven Hospice
offers Camp Safe Haven to
bring children who've gone
through a loss together with
their peers who know how
they feel. The most recent
camp session, held April 8
at Camp Kulaqua in High
Springs, served 28 children
ages 6 - 12.
Camp Safe Haven
is about having fun-
bringing children together
to take their minds off their
worries, but also giving
them an opportunity to talk
about their loss if they want
to. "We let them do their
thing," said Haven's grief
support counselor Vonceil
Levine, who coordinates
the camp. The kids who
came to Camp Kulaqua
spent a large part of their
day at the camp's zoo and
in the water park, where
they helped pull each other
down a lazy river and surfed
in a wave pool. There were
smiles all around.
"Camp Safe Haven is
designed to educate,


healing from
encourage and empower
young people to experience
their grief in a healthy and
safe environment," said
Levine.
At the close of the day,
supported by parents and
grandparents, the children
formed a circle in a field,
joined hands, and sent
messages to their lost loved it
ones via helium balloons.
For information about
the next scheduled Camp .
Safe Haven, contact , t
Vonceil Levine at 352-692- , .

Haven supports grieving
families in a multitude
of ways, including Camp
Safe Haven and SASHA's
Friends for children who
are anticipating a loss. The
organization's Healing
Hearts program provides
individual, family and
group counseling to help
anyone who is coping with
grief, regardless of how
the loss occurred. Skilled
Haven Hospice social
workers also assist in times
of community crisis and
tragedy.

Toy Story I and Toy Story II on Blue Ray and DVD


By KEES BOER
Entertainment Writer
Disney has started to re-release their
famous movies on Blue Ray. The nice
thing with these releases is that it also
includes the DVD version of the movie.
So, if you haven't quite made the decision
to purchase a Blue Ray player, don't worry
about it, you can still buy these films, and
by the time you decide to get a Blue Ray
player, you'll have a whole collection of
Disney Blue Ray disks.
The Toy Story film was one of the
earlier Pixar computer animated movies
made. Watching the film again, I was fairly
impressed by how well they made this film.
The story is one dealing with toys that
come "alive" after the child leaves the
room. They all enjoy being played with,
even if this includes quite rough playing.
They do have a whole hierarchy set up


among them.
Some well known actors were involved
in the voice recording of this movie. Tom
Hanks did the voice for Woody and Tim
Allen did the voice for Buzz Lightyear.
Woody is a cowboy type doll, who is
the leader of all of the toys. He is also the
favorite toy of his owner, and although his
owner is quite rough with him, he is quite
happy being the top toy of all the other toys.
He's got quite a group of toys that
will follow him and he is their established
leader. One day, Andy, the little boy who
owns the toys, has a birthday and all of the
toys are afraid that they are going to be
replaced by the new toys and that they will
end up in a garage sale somewhere.
Well, everything seems to go well,
when Andy seems to get gifts ranging
from socks to underwear, but then the final
present comes out - a big astronaut type
toy, called Buzz Lightyear. Now, Buzz is


the new toy in town and Andy loves Buzz.
The thing is that Buzz doesn't believe he
is a toy. He thinks he is real. All this gets
on Woody's nerves because he feels like he
has been replaced by a toy that somehow
doesn't believe he is a toy. Also, the -
situation goes from bad to worse because .
Andy and his family are actually going to

mean dog who likes to destroy toys. What j
will they do?
Both of the Toy Story 1 and 2 DVDs
are available on this Blue Ray/DVD J u iJ J.-. i,\
combination. I don't have any reservations .
about the films for family viewing. Some of
the situations are slightly mature for small
children, such as a romance, between a doll -
and Woody, the cowboy, but nothing that
would make this film not family friendly. -'"
The DVDs were released on March 23, Photo special toAlachua County Today

)f eateries
the town will remain small.
Because the town's main appeal
is its dated look, she said residents
oppose renovations. And with
two major highways and Paynes
Prairie bordering Micanopy, it
is unlikely that the town can
physically expand.
The sense of community
found in Micanopy is not common
in larger towns, she said.
But not everything is perfect
for the Bead Mama in this old
town. When asked about how she
feels about having Caf6 Risque,
an exotic club in Micanopy, she
said, "We don't need to talk about
the naked people place."
Most of McNatt's friends
have lived in Micanopy for years.
Some of the children might move
away after high school, but, for
the most part, people stay.
When her daughter was
young, McNatt used to take her
to the local cemetery to read the
dates and messages engraved
on the tombstones. Some of the
gravestones date back to the early
1800s. Everyone from Micanopy
is buried there. One day, she says
she will be, too.

The Freddie L. Warmack Ball Park: Take two


By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY - Several months ago,
Newbeny honored Freddie Warmack
by renaming East Park after him. City
officials and a handful of family members
were in attendance for the ribbon cutting
and placement of the sign.
Still, something didn't sit right with one
of those family members in attendance.
James Mayberry, 39, Warmack's
grandson, said the celebration was missing
something: so many of his grandfather's
friends and family weren't there and didn't
even know he was being honored.
Mayberry decided to organize his
own celebration. He turned to the online
community of Facebook to get the word
out and enlisted others to help with food,
music and a bounce house for the kids.
Early Saturday morning, Mayberry
was cooking ribs in preparation for the
big event. That afternoon, about 150 of
Warmack's friends and family came to
hang out, eat barbecue and talk about the
impact Warmack has had on their lives.
"A lot of times people wait till you
die to give you homage," Alachua Police
Chief Joel Decoursey said, adding that


they were giving him flowers while he was
still living.
Warmack became the first black mayor
in the history of Newberry in 1974, and he
served as the City's mayor for the next 20
years. His legacy is unmistakable as many
black leaders in Alachua County have
followed in his footsteps.
Mayberry invited some of those people
who followed Womack's path to become
black leaders in their own communities,
including Bonnie Burgess, the first black
female mayor of Alachua, Clovis Watson
Jr., the first black city manager of Alachua,
Decoursey, the first black police chief of
Alachua, DeLoris Roberts, the first black
female mayor of Hawthorne, and Roberta
Lopez, the first black female mayor of
Archer.
"The honorable Freddie Warmack
was and is the one to create the initial
breakthrough for people of color in this
community," Burgess said.
"That is what happens with a
breakthrough. The first ones through the
door often get bruised," Burgess said.
"Those of us who have been the first have
paved the way for those who would be the
second."


ALEX AUSTIN Alachua County Today
Freddie Warmack became the first black mayor in the history of Newberry in 1974,
and this past Saturday he was honored by 150 friends and family for his 20 years
of service.


Decoursey spoke at the event about
Warmack's perseverance and sacrifice.
"I stand on his shoulders. He's a
trailblazer. I know there were a lot of
sleepless nights, a lot controversy, a lot of
situations where he could've easily thrown


his hands up and left and said, 'You'll
can have this.' He didn't do that, and I'm
thankful for that."

Funding delays old schoolhouse renovation


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -
Going from lead paint,
asbestos and termites to
new floors, windows and
a new roof, the forlorn
old schoolhouse of High
Springs has gotten quite the
makeover. But before its
new look can be unveiled
and its doors opened for use
by the public, it still needs
about $450,000 worth of
work.
Class at the historic
schoolhoouse, which served
as the town's elementary
school, let out for the last
time in 1986.
In 2005, the state of
Florida awarded more than
$300,000 in grants and
other funding to the City of
High Springs to restore the
building.
Since then, under
the direction of project
manager Penny Banks,
the school has been gutted


and refitted. Cracks in the
foundation and framework
were repaired, and today
the exterior is essentially
finished.
The inside is another
story.
Banks said the
bathrooms and all the
plumbing need to be
installed, and the entire
building needs new electric
wiring. Right now the
city has about $200,000
available to put toward
further renovations.
According to the
City's 2007 budget, the
remainder of the project
will cost $650,000. Banks
explained this number
could potentially be lower
now, given a difference in
contractor and construction
rates over the past two
years. But essentially this
means the City needs an
additional $450,000, give
or take, to get the job done.
During an April 22 City


Commission meeting, City
Manager James Drumm
said it could be as long as
five years before there's
enough money to continue
and finish the school house.
Banks explained that
even if the state issued
another grant today for the
full amount, it could be
three years before the City
actually had that money in
hand. Adding on the time
it could take to finalize
budgets and plans, and then
actually begin, he agreed it
could easily be five years
before it gets finished.
Talking about the
renovations that have
already been done, Banks
said, "It took a year to
get ready to do the work
and nine months to do the
work."
As for what will become
of the building once it's
completed, he said he has
no idea at this point.
"I've talked to 100


different people and heard
more than 50 different
ideas."
He thinks the space


would make forgreat offices
for city administration, but
he really has no say in what
will happen, he said.

Ways to looth a tooth


While my 10-year old nephew
was visiting last week, he
discovered a loose tooth in his
bottom jaw. Before I tell you what
transpires with this child and his
tooth, let me tell you about my
nephew.
He is a boy of many interests.
Because of his many
interests, it is not in his
nature to be still for very ,
long. Not only is he
physically active, but his , r
mind is always two steps
ahead of his actions, but
three steps behind the
consequences. In other
words, he's all boy.
He's also impatient Laura S
and motivated by
money, which doesn't bode well for
a tooth that is only slightly loose.
My youngest boy is a problem
solver. He knew his cousin had a
problem and he wanted to help.
My 13-year old is the exact
opposite of my nephew. After
going over the many possible
consequences of a possible solution,
my son is more likely to simply
put up with the problem. But he is
drawn to other's pain and suffering,
for the same reason people watch a
bungee-jumper: just to see if he'll
hit the ground. So, my son was
prepared to get involved with his
cousin's loose-tooth challenge.
The trio was unmatched in
terms of creativity, ingenuity and
sheer strength of conviction (on the
part of my nephew). They were all


committed to solving the problem
at hand.
The youngest genius decided
that they should build a robot to
complete the task. He wanted to
help, but apparently having a robot
do the actual deed would clear his
conscience if anything should go
wrong.
S It was by mutual
agreement, however,
- that by the time they
built a robot - an
Endeavor for which
Completion was
S dubious, at best - his
tooth would probably
have fallen out by itself.
lyder That, apparently, was an
unacceptable outcome.
The first experiment was the
classic "Tie the Tooth to the Door
Handle." Neither of my boys
wanted to be responsible for hurting
their cousin. So after gearing him
up, they left the door-slamming in
his hands. His door-slamming was,
unfortunately, ineffective on the
stubborn tooth.
Then they tried some variations
of the door-slamming. A yo-yo
was employed because, I guess, it
already had the requisite loop in
the string with which to secure the
victim's tooth. However, the yo-yo
was not heavy enough to dislodge
it.
A technique my youngest boy
had seen on America's Funniest
Home Videos was to tie the
offensive tooth to a Nerf dart and


shoot at the nearest tree. Of course
they tried this, mostly because it
sounded cool. Alas, the tooth did
not budge.
They thought about tying the
tooth to my toaster and throwing it
off the balcony, but I decided that
my toaster was an integral piece
of equipment because we had just
bought a dozen bagels for breakfast
the next day. If they wanted to
throw something off the balcony,
they should risk a Tonka truck or
some other item that belonged to
them.
While looking in their toy-box
for a toaster-equivalent, they found
a Hot Wheels launcher and decided
it might be just the thing. They tied
the tooth to the bumper of the Hot
Wheels car and launched it into the
loop-de-loop track. The victim's
neck may have experienced slight
whiplash, but the tooth held firm.
It is a very good thing that most
people's teeth fall out well before
one can obtain a license to drive.
Otherwise, Emergency Rooms all
over the country might have seen
way too many cases of boys walking
in with pavement imbedded into
their face and a fishing line hanging
out of their mouth attached to a
stubborn tooth.

HAWTHORNE:
Continuedfrom page A


Moosbrugger hired attorney


"I was scared, stressed and confused," Moosbrugger
said, in a letter she read to the commission on April 20.
She was only told that the suspension was in
connection with an earlier incident where two employees
cashed a check made payable to the City of Hawthorne
that was reportedly for off-duty work.
Hawthorne city attorney Audrie Harris requested an
interview with Moosbrugger, who then discussed the
situation with her mother who advised that she get an
attorney to protect herself.
Moosbrugger hired attorney Sam Mutch to go with
her to the interview with Harris.
"Because of the way I had been treated throughout
the whole process, like a criminal, I was afraid of what
might be coming," Moosbrugger said.
She said the interview was really an interrogation.
"When you are asked to raise your right hand
and swear to tell the truth to an attorney who is doing


an investigation, that is an interrogation, not just an
interview," she said.
At the interview, Moosbrugger finally learned why
she had been suspended. She was accused of listening
to private conversations at the city manager's door and
giving city documents to Vice-Mayor William Carlton
without proper authorization.
Moosbrugger denied all of the accusations. On
the advice of her attorney, she pursued whistle blower
protection by filing a report with the sheriff and the city
commission.
In Harris' report on the incident, she said she
interviewed several employees.
"When questioned, every employee relayed that they
believed Kelly Moosbrugger disseminates information,
in an effort to discredit Mr. Smyth, to people outside City
Hall because she is upset that the former interim city
manager, Ms. Chapman, was not hired for the permanent


position and that the City hired Mr. Smyth," Harris said.
Moosbrugger was asked to return to work on March
31, a week after her suspension.
At the April 20 commission meeting, Moosbrugger
requested that the commission reimburse her for her
legal fees of $979.50.
The commission decided to consider paying, but only
after all of the investigations, included the report filed to
the sheriff's office, were complete.
"I have worked hard and been loyal to the citizens of
Hawthorne," she said. "I am very disappointed in what
has occurred and I hope you can see that what happened
to me was wrong."

Run-off is between Helle and Wilford this Tuesday, May 4


29 upon his appointment
to fill a vacancy on the
commission in 1963.
Cellon won election for the
same seat in a September
1963 special election.
Monday also marked
the first time in over a
decade that the Alachua
City Commission
consisted of no women.
Long-time Commissioner
and former Mayor Jean
Calderwood did not seek
re-election to her seat
which was converted into
the Mayoral post. Mayor
Bonnie Burgess, who also
served for several terms
as a commissioner did not
seek re-election either,
opting instead to toss her


hat into the school board
race.
Calderwood
congratulated both
Boukari and Coerper on
their wins and said she
considered it an honor
to serve the citizens of
Alachua. Burgess gave a
nod to Calderwood saying
she felt likewise.
While Burgess has
apparently resigned her
seat on the commission,
her replacement has yet
to be selected. Voters will
decide between Duane
Helle and Robert Wilford
in a special run-off election
on Tuesday, May 4.
During the April 13
election, Helle, Wilford


and Dollean Perkins faced
off, but none receive at
least 50 percent plus one
vote as required. Wilford
was the top vote-getter
with 349 votes, Helle
came in second with 288
votes while Perkins picked
up 238 votes. All three

resigned from the commission
halfway through her term in February
for health and family reasons.
"At this moment I don't think I
will run again, but you never know
what will happen in the future," Hill
said Monday.


And as the first candidate to apply
for the seat, Gestrin said she decided
to run for election so she could make
a difference in a community she has
been a part of much of her life.
Gestrin is a 60-year-old retiree
who has lived in the city since 1999.
Though she did not grow up in High
Springs, she spent much of her
childhood visiting her grandparents
who lived in the city.
"When I was young there were
times when my parents lived in
Orlando, but I stayed here in High
Springs with my grandparents,"
Gestrin said Monday. "Moving here
10 years ago was a dream come true
for me because really it's home for
me."


Gestrin said she applied for
candidacy early so she could start
meeting voters and hearing residents'
concerns.
She plans on launching
her campaign to reach out to
the community but has not yet
announced issues on which she will
make her platform. Gestrin did say
that she would like to see more job
opportunities in the community and
would like to analyze city spending.
"I really wanted to spend this
time so I have time to meet every
voter and find out what's on their
hearts," she said.

PIONEER DAYS: ' nn-cmmercal vendors allowed this year'
Continuedfrom page A]lie: 'Only O-cmmers this


well-known Florida cowboys
with a herd of 300 cattle set
off to recapture their livestock
which had been taken by a few
up-to-no-good rustlers. At that
time, stealing a herd of cattle
was as easy as pushing them
across Florida, which was a
free-range state until the 1920s.
With the help of the Osceola
County Sheriff and his deputies,
the cowboys tracked down the
thieves and a shootout ensued.
That was the story that played
out this past weekend at the
Pioneer Days festival.
Before there was a tinge of
gun smoke in the air on Saturday
morning, the High Springs
Chamber of Commerce honored
one of its own pioneering
families, the Forresters. With
deep roots in the area, Mary Lois
Forrester is an area historian,


having written three books about
the community. Forrester's
father was the founder of Jim
Douglas Chevrolet which has
since been renamed to Jim
Douglas Sales and Service.
High Springs Mayor William
Coughlin presented an award
naming the Forresters as the
third annual Pioneering Family
as over a half-dozen members of
the family accepted the honor.
High Springs Chamber of
Commerce President Thomas
Weller noted that Pioneer
Days was scaled back this year
because only non-commercial
vendors were permitted.
As a cost savings measure,
he said this year marked the first
time since 2005 that a major
thoroughfare was not closed
to allow for the event, which
apparently saves the Chamber of


Commerce over $5,000.
Weller also added, "This
time of year there are festivals
everywhere so were competing
with the other festivals and lastly
the economy is down."
Nevertheless, Weller said he
believes the scaled-back Pioneer
Days brought an overall higher
quality experience for area
residents.
Although reduced in
proportions, the event
was complete with period
demonstrators in the Heritage
Village, the Kids Korral, a
food court, the nearby Farmer's
Market and even a shirt
commemorating the theme and
the event.

Park improvements still on drawing board

Three years and counting for James Paul Park


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -
After three years of debate
on what to do to improve
James Paul Park, there has
been a new twist.
During an April 22
City Commission meeting,
Commissioner John Hill
suggested closing the road
that runs between City Hall
and the police department.
The idea will be discussed
further at the May 13


Commission meeting.
According to City
Manager James Drumm,
a plan to improve the park
was first submitted by
the Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board three
years ago. The board has
submitted two additional
revised recommendations
since then.
"And the improved
plan changes again," said
Drumm, referring to the
suggestion of closing the


road.
It's the first time the
idea has been brought up.
It's an interesting concept,
he said, and he could see it
as benefiting the park as a
whole.
High Springs has
pledged $32,000 to
renovate the park, and the
City has struggled to come
to a firm agreement with
the Parks and Recreation
board on how to use the
funds.


Drumm said the
issue that has been most
contentious is whether or
not to install a pattern of
lamps, benches and trash
cans around the sinkhole.
During the commission
meeting April 22, residents
discussed potential safety
hazards and environmental
issues.
Public Works director
Laverne Hodge voiced
concerns about the
placement of benches,


given the steep drop-off
at some points around the
sinkhole.
Drumm said that as far
as he can see, there are a
few spots where it would be
reasonable to put benches,
but they could not be placed
all the way around the hole.
Residents Tom and
Linda Hewlett both spoke
about their concerns and
desires for the future of the
park.
"This is a place that is
very special, and right now
we're not using it," Tom
said, who is on the board
of directors for the Main
Street Design Committee.
Linda, a science
teacher, addressed possible
environmental impacts of
development in the area. "A
sink hole is like an open cut
in your skin," she said. "We
need to protect it."
She's worried that run-
off from the nearby roads
could pollute the hole.
Technically, an
ordinance exists prohibiting
any development within
50 feet of it, but that has
already been violated by


the construction of the road
that Hill is now suggesting
should be closed.
Another aspect of the
park up for debate is the
antique caboose currently
being displayed there.
Drumm said he'd like
to see it moved to the
Chamber of Commerce,
where "it would look more
natural."
Moving it, he said,
would also free up more
"green space," and make
the area a lot less crowded,
especially in the future
when the parish hall next
door may be expanding.
It's hard to say how
soon people should expect
to see changes taking place,
Drumm said. It all depends
on how soon a plan is
agreed on, and what the
plan involves.
Drumm said he hopes to
actually start implementing
a plan, rather than moving
on to another new one to be
talked about.

Those who serve as

the always difficult and often
dangerous job of ensuring the
safety and security of offenders
in the nation's jails and prisons.
Detention employees supervise
offenders in local, state and

In many areas, detention
employees are the single line of
security between offenders and
the general public. They maintain
order and security. They conduct
day-to-day operations. They
serve as mentors, counselors
and advisors. Without them, the
nation's jails and prisons would

In honor of the thousands

Choosing hospice to extend quality of life

Dispelling some of the myths about hospice care


By DIANE WAYNE
Haven Hospice
Special to
Alachua County Today
A December 29, 2009
New York Times article asked
whether choosing hospice
care results in fewer choices
for patients and families and
may even hasten death. But
the purpose of providing
quality hospice care is to
extend the quality of life
by giving people choices
and honoring their wishes.
What happens when families
feel cared for and respected
during this challenging time is
remarkable:

* Hospice care relieves
patients' pain and other
symptoms so that they
can feel stronger and more
comfortable. This often
means they are better
able to communicate their
wishes, enjoy spending


time with their family and
friends, and remain active
for as long as possible.
Many of our patients
continue to do what
matters most to them.
An artist kept working
at her craft; a cancer
patient continued to ride
his golf cart to visit with
his neighbors and check
on their health. Another
patient took the time to
found a library in her
small town.

"The most rewarding
words I hear are, 'Doc,
I have no pain,'" says
Haven physician Dr. Bob
McCollough. "We've
turned things around for
so many patients. There's
so much you can do
for people at the end of
their lives to make them
comfortable and pain-
free."


* Hospice physicians care
for patients wherever they
are most comfortable-at
home, in a skilled nursing
facility or in the hospital,
surrounded by their loved
ones and the staff who are
caring for them.

* Hospice patients are able
to die naturally, in their
own time, when they are
ready to go. Many hospice
patients live longer
than expected because
hospice care eases mental,
physical, emotional and
spiritual pain. A recent
study of nearly 5,000
terminally ill patients
revealed that patients
in hospice care live an
average of 29 days longer
than patients who have
similar conditions but are
not receiving hospice care.
Published in the Journal
of Pain and Symptom


Management, the study's
findings challenge the
notion that hospice care
hastens death.

"We have speculated for a
long while that terminally
ill patients do better while
in hospice care, but it
hasn't been definitively
proven until now, with
this study," says Haven
physician Dr. Michelle
Boatwright. "Hospice
patients sometimes do get
better," she added, "and
occasionally they recover
and go home."

Because patients do better
in hospice care, it's not
unusual to hear families
say, "We wish we had used
hospice services earlier."

Hospice care serves any
patient with a prognosis
of six months or less.


Patients come to hospice
with cancer, emphysema,
chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease,
muscular dystrophy and
many other life-limiting
illnesses.

Anyone can refer someone
for hospice care, and at not-
for-profit hospices, care is
provided to all regardless
of their ability to pay and
whether or not someone
has insurance. The hospice
Medicare benefit covers
the cost of all medications,
medical equipment, oxygen
and supplies relevant to the
diagnosis. In addition, hospice
patients are not required to
have a living will or a "do-
not-resuscitate" order to be
admitted for care.
"Hospice is about life,"
says Dr. McCollough, "and
our goal is helping patients
achieve the best quality of life


in the time they have left. It's
a very good feeling to know
we've helped someone and
their family."
Haven Hospice is North
Florida's expert in end-of-life
and palliative care and is one
of three 2008 Circle of Life
Award winners nationwide to
be recognized as leaders in
improving the care of patients
near the end of life or with
life-threatening conditions.
Haven Hospice has also been
recognized as a Florida
Pacesetter for its leadership in
promoting living wills. Haven
Hospice has served nearly
50,000 patients and families
since 1979 and has been
licensed in Florida as a not-
for-profit hospice since 1980.

Alice was happy to be in her own bed that night. After she had
been lost in the desert where it was cold and lonely, she snugged
under the warm covers, still hugging Susan's doll. Her parents
were happy to have her home, but they told her that she must
never again go anywhere by herself. Alice was sorry she had
worried her parents. She vowed never to go out alone.
The next morning, Alice had breakfast with her parents. Then
the family had their own little Sunday School lesson. Mother
told Alice that after their Sunday dinner, they would all go to
Grandmother Helen's and return Susan's doll.
So, with Pa in the lead, the family walked over the trails to
Grandmother's hogan. Everyone was happy to see them.
Thomas invited Pa to sit with him in the yard to talk.
Grandmother asked if Alice would like to work on the loom.
Alice said she would love to try. Soon she was seated beside
Grandmother. The old woman began slowly weaving the
colorful threads together. After a few minutes, she let Alice
try weaving. It was not very easy, but Alice worked hard to
make her part of the blanket as nice as she could.
The more Alice worked with the thread, the better she became.
Even Susan smiled to see what a good job Alice was doing on
the blanket.
All afternoon, Grandmother, Mrs. Palmer and the two girls sat
in front of the loom, talking and making the bright red blanket.
Susan could already weave very nicely, and Alice worked hard
to learn. Grandmother promised to help Alice learn to be a
good weaver.
When the sun began to go down, Pa said it was time to go
home. Before they left, Mother asked Susan if she would like
to attend school at the trading post. She said it would be nice
for Alice to have a schoolmate. And, Mother said, they would
have piano lessons.
Grandmother said it would be a good thing for Susan to go to
school. When Thomas agreed that Susan could take lessons
with Alice, the two girls squealed with delight. Because Susan
had never been to school, Alice promised to help her learn to
read and write and do arithmetic.
The next morning when Thomas came to work, Susan came
with him. Mother had a place for Susan to work. She also had
school supplies for Susan to use. While Alice worked on her
