Doll show reunites adults with their childhood friends MEGAN HOLT/The Herald-Zeitung Twelve New Braunfels residents became certified to respond to emergency situations Saturday.The new members of the City of New Braunfels Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) practiced transporting victims with limited resources during a mock disaster. BE PREPARED New Braunfels welcomes 12 more members to disaster team By Megan Holt The Herald-Zeitung Odie Palmour, 55-year-old San Angelo resident, smiled with joy after finding the perfect, soft-bodied, unclothed doll to add to her collection. "Since I was a little girl, I have been a doll lover,” Pal-mour said. "I have a grown son now, and because it’s close to Valentine’s Day, I’m looking for a new baby to cuddle with.” For lovers like Palmour, Saturday’s 19th annual Hill Country Doll Show and Sale was the perfect venue for vinyl and porcelain doll collectors. More than 80 doll and toy dealers gathered at New Braunfels Civic and Convention Center for the event, said Dorothy Meredith, doll show sponsor. “We have antiques ranging from one to thousands of dollars,” Meredith said. “Vendors are selling German bisque dolls and doll furniture. Ball-jointed dolls are all the rage right now.” Meredith said dolls are the second-most collected items in the United States. “People feel good when they collect dolls because it reminds them of their childhood and good times,” she said. Meredith, dubbed the "Doll Doctor,” has been restoring antique dolls for more than 30 years. Marilu Sheehan, a Sasha Doll collector and 70-year-old Alpine resident, has been collecting dolls since her children were little in the early 1970s. “I have almost 100 of them,” Sheehan said. “When we lived in England, these Sasha dolls were made there, and each of my daughters had one. They are the perfect play doll and are a work of art.” Although Sasha dolls were discontinued in 1985, Sheehan continues to travel to doll shows in hopes of purchasing more. “Doll collectors are preserving history so dolls can be handed down for generations,” Meredith said. MEGAN HOLT/The Herald-Zeitung Odie Palmour, 55, inspects soft-bodied dolls Saturday morning at the Hill Country Doll Show and Sale. Palmour, along with hundreds of others, is reliving her childhood while hunting for the perfect doll to add to her collections. To comment on stories, visit wvwv.herald-zeitung.com By Megan Holt The Herald-Zeitung New Braunfels Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Ilarris certified 12 more community members in emergency response Sunday. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program prepares community members, their families and neighbors for disaster, Harris said. After completing 20 hours of free training, CERT members are able to assist local emergency responders when needed. “People confuse CERT with WANT TO JOIN? For information about the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program or to become a member, contact Steve Harris at (830) 221-4270 or sharris@nbtexas.org . VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), but this is a group of community members that can meet and perform any tasks assigned to them, Harris said. “Their jobs are limitless, and they can be used during emergency operations. Trainees learn how to prepare for emergencies, identify hazards, perform disaster medical operations and search and rescue tasks. The first CERT training class was in December, when 15 people became certified. Twelve people, including three Canyon High School students, were certified Sunday. “I want to get involved in helping the community,” said Dana Black, a 16-year-old CHS student. “I wapt to learn about safety and medical procedures in case we need them.” Harris said emergency management is not something that affects some people and not others. “No one gets to sit it out," Harris said. "Everyone is responsible and accountable for themselves.” CERT member Sandy Carey said many people who were in the military sign up for the training. “A lot of us here want to help and do more good than harm during a disaster,” Carey said. “We have the skills to help. We are learning how to respond and become part of a system.” For information about the CERT program or to become a member, contact Steve Harris at (830) 221-4270 or shar- ris@nbtexas.org .
