Madalianna Alicea, 4, is well known in the 400 block of West Fourth Street.
When she is not flying up and down the sidewalk on her “Dora the Explorer” scooter, she is busy decorating the sidewalks with drawings of flowers.
“She is out there every day. I sometimes have to make her come in because it is too cold,” says her mother, Wanda Fassett.
Madalianna is excited because her cat, Kelly, recently give birth to a litter of six kittens.
“I love to hold the kittens,” says Madalianna, as she smiles and shows the kitten scratches on her hands. JACK HANRAHAN/Erie Times-News

"I like the feeling of the wind on my face," said Autumn Carey. Oliver William Adams, 6, and his cousin Autumn Carey, 12, both of Erie, and each under the supervision of one of their parents, hang out in a tree at Pulaski Park on the corner of East 10th Street and Brandes Street on April 8. It was Adams' second or third time in a tree and he could barely contain his excitement. "It's pretty cool...I can see clouds and blue sky," exclaimed Adams. The new perspective even allowed him to see "cracks" in the tree. But the one thing he didn't think he'd see were birds, "cause we're in this tree and they'll be scared of us," he added. JANET B.

"I keep making it," said Javory Elverton. Though he has never played basketball and has never watched a game on television, 7-year-old Javory Elverton, of Erie, appears to be a natural. "I can do it with one hand, said Javory after sinking another ball through the net of his ESPN basketball game. Elverton was given the game last summer and says he practices his shooting when he is bored. He looks forward to the day he can play an actual basketball game with his brother. But that might be awhile because his baby brother, Thomeir, is just 7 months old. JANET B. KUMMERER/Erie Times-News
