Actions speak louder than words for Sandra Moore Gerhardt.Tapping her toes and wiggling her hips, the 53-year-old can belt out a songwithout so much as lifting a vocal cord. It's her fingers that do the singing when she takes her place at the side of the stage during concerts at Lake Kittamaqundi.Gerhardt, a Columbia resident for 17 years, is a certified interpreter for the deaf."When interpreting, facial expressions and body language play a very important role in the meaning of a word. It's one of those things that cannot be taught by books," Gerhardt said, who is not deaf herself.
