Paplow was referring to the publishing of her book "Hands Upon the Rock" a children's book giving explana- tion of the petroglyphs located a few miles east of Jeffers. Paplow's full time occupation is teach- ing kindergarten at Red Rock Central Elementary School at Jeffers, where she has taught for 30 years. During the summer months she occu- pies some of her time working at the Jeffers Petroglyphs site east of Jeffers. She has worked part time as an interpret- er and guide there for the past 14 years. A part of her job is explaining the possible meaning of the ancient stone carvings by early American Indians. She said, "we have native American Elders who have helped interpret the meanings of the carvings." Before she became an interpreter, as a teacher, Paplow had brought her classes to the site several times. "From the first time I visited the site, I became fascinated with the Native American culture," Paplow said. She has taken her kids, grandchildren, and friends on frequent trips to the site. i i Paula with an advance copy of her book. HAHDs Uroe T'H[ ROCK She applied for the job after seeing an ad in the newspaper looking for part time help. After Paplow was accepted for the job she began training on weekends for a month. The training included reading books and listening to the elders tell about the history of the petroglyphs and their meaning. "I even was given home- work assignments," she said. Paplow works about five to nine days a month- with the state funding cuts, ..... : .... -hesite has hadto close two days a , week, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. However people can still go out to see the Petroglyphs but the interpretive center is not open. Paplow said, "I believe we may reopen the center on Wednesdays during July." As an interpreter Paplow does other programs beside guiding at the petro- glyph site. She does programs on animal tracks, prairie flowers and plants and what they are used for. The center has a book by Ken Callahan which is a very detailed account of the petroglyphs for advanced readers. Paplow was asked many times if there was a children's book about the petro- glyphs. After a while she began thinking about writing a book geared for kids about nine years ago. "One time, while guiding, a mother came up to me and told me her daughter had put her hand on the rock -- she asked her daughter what she was doing, her daughter replied, 'I can almost feel' her mother replied feel the heat? no, the hardness? no, 'I feel hope." Paplow had talked to a pro- fessional photog- rapher to have photos made for the book, but the cost she was quoted was about $3,000. Her husband, Don, told her why don't you buy a good cam- era? So she did that, and made all of the photos herself. "When I started writing it down I felt it wasn't beautiful so I went to Joan Bakker for her assistance in editing my wrtting," she said. Bakker had also spent a great deal of time at the site so she was very knowledgeable about it. Bakker was really helpful in analyzing the words I have written. Her first self published book was called "Winds Across the Rock" -- I felt that it was too hard a title for kids to understand. That is when she decided to change the title to "Hands Upon the Rock" "There were many times I really want- ed to just throw it out but I always received a lot of encouragement from my sister and friends. Paplow -- on page 3 South Africans visit area A group of South Africans from the Ondini Circuit were on an agriculture tour in southwest Minnesota the past couple weeks.

Horkey's pants caught on fire immediately and he ran to a stock tank to get water on them. Along the way he was having trouble running so he took his pocket knife out and cut away the bottom part of his pants to get the burning mate- rial off of his legs. He continued to the stock tank and jumped in to ' cool the bums. He then went to the house to get his wife, Vicky, to drive him to the hospital in Westbrook. When he realized she was not there he jumped into his vehicle and drove himself to the Sanford Westbrook Medical Center. He parked in the front lot and proceeded into the clinic in his burned offpants. The receptionist, who was behind the counter, asked if she could help him? Horkey said "I think I need a plane ride."
