Wednesday, March 10, 2010 Superior Sun, Super!or, Arizona Page 3 Early spring ... Superior Head Start children are able to learn language as they interact with adults and community volunteers and their peers. The children want to be helpers. Pre-reading, science, physical skills and counting are developed as parents and volunteers play with preschool children. Just prior to spring break the young students at Superior Head Start participated in a variety of activities throughout the day. Karen Murrieta of Rose's Roses Flower Shop participated as a guest reader and class volunteer. She read a story aloud about spring and assisted the children in creating flowers using multicolored tissue paper and pipe cleaners. Fred Murrieta made a surprise visit accompanied by his singing pet Chihuahua dog. The children interact with guests and volunteers during activities that they can do together.They sing a few familiar songs as they march, stamp their feet, clap their hands, using hand and body actions to say the words and sing nursery rhymes. Community volunteers play an important role in the Head Start Preschool Program. They encourage youngsters to develop a sense of community using words such as 'we, us and ours.' The children also participated in an early spring outdoor bug hunt and found a small caterpillar on the steps of the climber structure. (Submitted photos) DIRECTV SAVE $29/Ho FOR A YEAR!

Born April 5, 1932, beloved mother, grandmother and great grand- mother, she is survived by her five children, Jo, Sue, Harry, Phil, Matt, her six grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. She loved her home in Superior and the company of her pets. Being a mili- tary wife meant a lot of moving around in the early years of her marriage. So after returning to the states from a de- ployment in Germany the family settled in New York. From there they moved to Arizona and eventually planted roots in the Verde Valley. Camp Verde is the place that the kids grew up and called home. In the 60s she was a 4H leader and in the 70s she was an Arizona State Commander of the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary. Nancy loved sports and rarely missed a game where her children were involved. She often spoke of the excitement of being at the World Series in 2001. She spent much of her later years traveling, playing in the SCA, and living in a number of places in Arizona and New Mexico. To all of you in Superior, a special heartfelt thank you to the people of the town of Superior.Jo and I have been overwhelmed by the response of the community. You are all so special.

(Cindy Tracy photo) S iperior's newest restaurant features mining, film, art and all-American food By Cindy Tracy A new eatery in a familiar Main Street building that has been recently renovated is to be dedicated to the twin themes 0f movies and mining. The Porter's C@ wilt also feature art work to bring color to the walls and recognition to area artists, accord- ing to restaurateur Lynn Heglie. He is opening the establishment in the historic Porter Building towards the end of March. The now rust colored building, an icon in the annals of Superior's past, is home to a number of historic architectural touches. It is also home to many replicas of historic features, according to the building's owner an l restorer Bill Holmquist. Many of these are related to the film industry and movies that have been made in Superior or elsewhere. For instance the main room of the new establishment sports an exact replica of the original HOTEL MAGMA sign from the heyday of Superior's Magma Hotel. The replica was fabricated by Holinquist for the movie "U-Turn" that was filmed in Superior inthe 1990s. Holmquist, who owns and operates Sun Sets Designs on Main Street, is involved in the motion picture business. He has had a major hand in renovating a number of vintage Superior'buildings.
