    Fresh eggs sat in a hand-glazed pottery bowl on the kitchen table in Terron Dodd’s tidy house Friday.
    The wooden floors gleamed in sunshine pouring through the front window, which overlooked a forested river valley near Whycocomagh. Clean dishes were stacked next to the sink.
    Upstairs, Heidi Riker sculpted her mail-order, other-worldly animals – a cat with wings, for example – from fake fur and wire skeletons. In the living room, Sabrina Riker, Heidi’s sister, fussed with a hairbrush over Dodd’s curling hair.
