Luke,  Good luck with the class.  It seems a challenging one judging by 
the name :-).  I was able to get the player to be moved into a different 
location on the grid when the "t" key is pressed.  The answer was, as it 
often is, in reading the manual :-), in this case the Graphics worksheet 
that talks about removing objects which is a bit of the Livewires 
magic.  Here is my code that removed the player from the board and 
placed it in a new location when the 't' keys is pressed:

        if 't' in keys:
            remove_from_screen (player_shape)

I will now venture forth with the rest of the instructions in the 
exercise.  Thank you all for  helping me over the hump!
