We look back....we look forward!!!

 83rd Edition ~ 12/12/2013

 

Website: http://www.albanyhightimes.com                Email: albanyhightimes@aol.com

 

. . .  just a small town in South Georgia that grew the best kids ever raised!!

 

    

 

 

 

Thanks to all those who sent comforting emails on the demise of my laptop, and the precarious situation on the Albany High Times’ website last month.  Am still trying to sort through all of my back up files, trying to locate the lost “Times’ website folder”.  So depending on my finding that folder, I am either home free OR … I have a lot of work re-creating the missing pages.  My new computer has the same operating system as the last one, but for reasons beyond my understanding, it doesn’t gee and haw as well with my web program as I would prefer.  Until I find a solution, I will have to send “News & Clues via email.  This time I will once again post via  email , but also send  as a Word attachment.  I have lots of pictures to post, but they will have to wait. 

 

 So dear Indians … as I look at my living room full of Christmas decoration bins waiting for loving hands to help them create their magic, I have decided give the Times’ website a rest until after this special season spreads its JOY!! 

 

And I hope yours is a VERY SPECIAL ONE!

INDIAN INTERESTS!

*****************************

*** I remembered our classmate's name, and I just checked, she is in our '62 annual. Tommy Kinney recognized her name and sent the notice to 15 or 20 of the class. I did notice that she died at our Wilson Hospice House.

I really wish I knew more about the hospice patients, other than name and address. So often when one dies I realize he/she is a parent or even AHS classmate, but Hippa keeps all that private! And now I only get the list of the actual cards I mail out. Sometimes I get to look at the full list and find that a patient has been switched to a different team.

Oops, are you totally clueless as to what I am talking about?  I send cards to Albany Community Hospice patients. If it is someone I know or know their family, I add a little note. If I learn they have been discharged from hospice and I know them I still continue to send a card. They are just moved to my personal list.

I also send cards to Camilla Retirement Village. I started when my church was sending cards and my mother was there, since I made the cards for the ladies to send I just added a few of my own. Then the church group folded and I started doing it on my own.

Enough! We need to get our beauty sleep!
Peace, Joann

*** Aloha Mallard Saye, Class of 1947 is a very talented artist!!!  I received the cute picture of the camel she used in her yard for Thanksgiving! 

Aloha’s

Albany Indian Thanksgiving Camel!

Aloha wrote: The camel is one of three that I cut out of plywood and painted for my three kings for my manger scene that I made 16 years ago. For Thanksgiving, the camel will be an (Albany) Indian.  I have a lot of fun entertaining the neighborhood. Glad you got the pic and thank you for letting me know.

I asked if she was intending to use the camel again for Christmas and she replied: “That camel will have on a Santa hat with the two other camels that go with the three Kings and the manger scene. Will not use the Woo Hoo sign.”

Check out the murals  she did of her classmates for their 55th Class Reunion!  It is so clever the Class of 1957 asked her permission to use it at their 55th reunion!!  You’ll want to check out her “work of love” at Click here: Memories of the 1940's down at the bottom of the page, right under Class of 1947’s and the tribute to their classmates lost in the Winecoff Fire.

Today another email from Aloha with a surprise … she sent Christmas vignettes placed in her yard … scroll to the bottom for all six pictures (the camel has returned, and this time he KNOWs what day it is)!

A Special Letter

from a

New Indian Friend!

 

November 20, 2013

I don’t know any of the ‘kids in the Albany High pictures except Walter Dees, younger brother of one of my best friends, Sidney Dees.  One of them may be YOU!

 

 

How do I happen to have these pictures?  I noticed that you graduated from high school in the same month that I got out of the Army, May 1955.  I remembered that when I got back to Albany that month I went to see the new high school.  It was Kids Day, and I took a few pictures.

 

I knew you’d like to have them, so I got out my 58-year-old color slides, transferred some to the computer and made these prints.  Hope you enjoy them.

 

At Radium Springs I recognize Jan Towery (I thought she looked like actress Arlene Dahl) and Solon Skandamis, a younger brother of my friend Johnny Skandamis.  It was a really sad time for us when the efforts of Morgan Murphy and others to save Radium failed and it was gone.

 

Thanks for your email response.  You’re right that we lived in a wonderful era.  I have always felt so lucky that I experienced the World War II years when our country was really UNITED in a great cause.  I was entering high school just as the war ended, growing up with many friends in a peaceful existence in a great town.  Today, some like to laugh at that period, but those were the days’!  (Yes, I get that those lyrics sung by Archie and Edith Bunker are themselves a mockery of that era.)

 

The band and our often-victorious football team, urged on by Anita Pait and other exuberant cheerleaders, gave us many joyful Friday nights.

Carleen Newell and Barbara Taylor WERE exuberant, but they were not cheerleaders. The three of them are good friends who worked hard to give us great class reunions.

 

Your ‘hobby’ seems to have taken on a life of its own and you’re doing a fine job with it.

~ Frank Wells (’48)

Easter Seals 2013 Ornament

 

In the 1950's, Pat Pellicano opened a bicycle shop located on Pine Avenue in Albany, Georgia.  Pat was a wonderful, loving and giving person.  He was affectionately known as, "Mr. Pat".  Most people from Albany have memories of a new bike purchased from his store or a repair that he did on their bike.  There are so many stories of him giving bikes at Christmas to children whose parents could not afford the one thing they wanted for Christmas, a new bike.

Each year we promote the reason why we are here and do what we do, is have an official City of Albany Christmas Ornament. The proceeds from the ornament sells help us to continue our mission of “Creating Solutions, Changing Lives”. As you hang this ornament on your tree this year you know that you have helped the many special children, youth and adults with disabilities receiving services through Easter Seals Southern Georgia.

We also still have available previous years ornaments for Albany, Vienna, Cordele, Tifton & Camilla.  To view the available ornaments or to make an on-line purchase click on the "Buy Ornaments" button below.

 INDIAN PRIDE !

*****************************

Interview with

Author Doug Dahlgren

 

Doug Dahlgren attended AHS in the Class of 1965.  His family moved to Atlanta his senior year, where he graduated from Druid Hills High.  He is a retired contractor and businessman and lives in Decatur, GA with his beautiful wife, Donna.  Since 2009 he has become a prolific “series” author!   A reviewer of his books writes, “Doug has created an intriguing modern day superhero, in the persona of Jonathan Crane.  Dahlgren’s writing style is spare; masculine, with lots of realistic dialogue.  Plots advance in a very direct ‘get it done’ manner and the excitement lays in the amazingly nifty tools of technology, vehicles, weapons and other highly imaginative devices he employs with lots of action!”

Curious about how one comes to create a character “series” in the style of Tom Clancy and Vince Flynn, I recently asked Doug to share some of his journey …

 

BEV:  Doug, you and I “met” through the Albany High Times when in 2009, you sent an email to announce your first book, “It Was Thursday” and asked if I might read it?   Much of my time is spent sitting at the computer working on the website, and I don’t read like I used to; but told you I would read it.  The statement on the back of your book, “Where is the line between Patriotism and Terrorism?” really drew me in, and you had me locked in from page one!  Including your first book, you have published since 2009, seven books.  I have wondered … when did you first know you wanted to write and what did you want to accomplish?

 

DOUG: I was in business for over thirty-two years and in that time I wrote many proposals and contracts to do with those businesses. I learned, that to be successful, you must write in a way that is both interesting and informative to the reader. Telling a story is much the same process and great writers capture your interest early and hold it through their story. I like to tell a good story. Old fashioned "good-guys" and "bad-guys" without vampires, walking-dead or flying people. Nothing against those genres, I just prefer more “plausible fiction,” with real characters that real people can relate to personally. I would often leave an action movie feeling the story could have been told better, if less fanciful. That’s what I try to do and I hope for some of you...I've been able to accomplish that.

 

BEV: Soon after your first book, you took on the monumental task of writing a “series”, and have just released your 6th book in the series, based upon an interesting character, Jonathan Crane.  Tell us how this man came to life, especially his purpose in life? 

 

DOUG: The character Silas is the alter-ego of my protagonist, Jonathan Crane. Jon Crane is an idea I've had for several years about what a real patriot hero might be. A driven crusader, Jon is a true Son of Liberty with the tools and moral compass of modern day superheroes. Yet Jon Crane is flesh and blood. Fiction, yes, but for all practical purposes, he is real. His objective is honorable, if not totally acceptable to all. He seeks to eliminate criminals who are protected from society by their positions of power and influence. He does this secretively and alone...at first. As this loner meets others who need his help, he finds he cannot say "no" or turn away from them. His secret is soon shared by a loyal group who, though they wouldn't do what he does themselves ... see the need to assist this assassin of evil.

 

BEV:  How did the innovation for the situations Jonathan faces evolve?  Have you ever created a situation which later became reality?  Could you share?

 

DOUG: The adventures grow and become more intense as Jon/Silas’ abilities and circle of helpers widen. Many of the scenarios come from my own personal interests. The drug cartels, human trafficking, and political corruption are things we all wish we could do something to stop. Through this character, Jon Crane, I take my shot at doing just that and hopefully take you along with me. It is difficult to keep fiction ahead of reality these days. I wrote of domestic drones a year or so before they became everyday news. The Israeli situation and our support for this embattled country is a great concern, and that narrative comes out in several of my books. I’m Christian, but fully believe we must defend the State of Israel from the aggressors in the Middle East. The kidnapping, disappearance, or murder of Natalie Holloway in Aruba also concerns me deeply. The mystery of what happened remains with us and may never be resolved. There are international groups that prey on young women and we do not always know where and how they act. Human trafficking is an  unspeakable crime and these people must be stopped. That said, I try to write stories of interest and current events interest me. My stories seem to enter into that realm quite often. Though close to reality. I hope most of my scenarios remain fiction.

 

BEV: One of the unforeseen surprises of the Albany High Times are the “connections” it has brought.  Would you share some of the Indians with whom you have made connections, and those who have given you help or guidance?

 

DOUG: The greatest joy to come from this new experience of writing has been meeting new people. You mentioned yourself and Tommy. My wife, Donna, and I are so proud of the friendship we have with you two and though it seems like it’s always been there, the truth is, without these books we might never have met. I’ve met other writers, across the country and readers as well. I’ve made friendships with many of them. Having people take your work seriously is a major challenge for any writer. I have been fortunate to have so many good people give me that opportunity and Albany, Georgia, and the Indians from there are a major part of that. There’s Faye Mitzi (McFee Cook) and her husband, Dan. They have been great friends and supporters for several years now. Chuck McCorvey, whom I met through you, has become a great friend and inspiration. We talk regularly by phone. Bill Hall, who was introduced by another Indian friend, James Fort, has been pitching my story to Hollywood movie and TV people for over two years. Doors are opening and who knows? Silas may yet come to the screen near you. Other new friends I must mention… Ben Swilley, Gwen Hay, Betty Rehberg, David Butler and Barbara Jo, Frieda (Howard) Randles, Shawn (McDaniel) Martin, Penny Avins and many others. Re-newed friendships from high school days include Cal and Patty Duke, Carl and Gayle Williams, Judy (Holman) and Sonny Deriso, Anne (Chesnut) Rackley, Terry Kent Hout and many more. Some of these folks now help with proof-reading for my publication work. The Albany connection has been terrific beyond the scope of books. These friendships are more valuable than anything material. I thank you and your efforts for that.

 

BEV:  Now that “The Daedalus Directive” is published, are you taking a break, is Jonathan Crane in retirement, or will we see more of Jonathan? 

 

DOUG: Actually, it’s Silas who has taken a break. I’m working on a new project. A story based on one of the minor characters who appeared in the last two SON novels. This man is a retired intelligence agent with deep knowledge of communications and cryptography. His talents and experiences are retold in a fictional way in my new story entitled, The Eagle. As for Jon, Murray, Ben, Marsha and the gang … time will tell. Reader interest is a big factor in motivation. If there is interest in more adventures of The SON, we’ll see where that takes us. For right now, I thank everyone who gave me a look and read a book.

As a youngster, Charles Johnson had a constant companion … his fancy dancy camera, Rolleicord!  Whether Charles knew it or not, he was recording history in the 1950’s in the City of Albany, at Radium Springs, the Casino and Pavilion, and at Albany High School.  He took pictures of teachers, sports, guys and cars, and pictures from the 1954 Junior-Senior Prom.  He was in the Class of 1954, and most, if not all of the snapshots in several annuals, were pictures Charles took ... no one got better shots than Charles!  Seems there was an over abundance of beautiful girls … nothing wrong with that … he had good taste!  We recommend you go to the following Times webpage, read the Albany Herald article and then click Charles’ personal link.

 Tribe Notes …

*****************************

*** Thanks, I enjoy the newsletter. I have not lived in Albany since I left for UGA in 1961, but I like to keep up. My mother, about to be 97, is at Morningside and I try to get back 3-4 times a year. My brother Milt (1959) is retired from the Albany HeraldFredda and I moved to Mississippi in 1970 where there were few good jobs and I got one. We moved to Tupelo in 1972 to open a branch of that ad agency and I went on my own in 1984. Never planned to stay, but Tupelo is like Albany of our time. Friendly, clean, safe, nice hardworking people who try to get along. It’s been a good life and an amazing career with great clients that small ad agencies don’t expect to service. I just promoted my elder son to president and COO. I will not retire but he can wrestle the administration and management while I do client work, write and call on clients.

While I look forward to your newsletter I also dread learning of who else of us has passed away. Thanks for your labors.

~ Tom Robinson (’61)

 

*** I am sending 7 emails attaching my class photos from grades 2-8 in Albany School system.

I recently visited my mom and family in Albany when she gave me these precious photos.

I attended Kindergarten at St Teresa; Grades 1 and 2 at Broad Street, Grades 3-6 at McIntosh, Grade 7 at McIntosh, as it converted to seventh grade only in 1958-59 and grades 8 & 9 at Albany Junior High. I transferred to Westminster Schools in Atlanta for 10th ,11th ,and 12th grades, where I graduated in 1964.

*** I knew a Buddy Flanders who was adopted, and I wonder if he is related to the one you wrote about.  Best wishes for Thanksgiving.

PS: I can't recall if I wrote you about my selection as the 2012 UGA College of Environment and Design Graduate of The Year Distinguished Alumni Award. It was a 3" circular brass medal engraved on both sides and hung on red and black ribbons. It was so heavy that when they hung it around my neck it almost pulled me over. The honor was a pleasant surprised, in fact a shock, as I have not done much except prepare two illustrated national award winning books on plants in design. I did so much appreciate it and to be asked in 2013 to be one of four speakers at the national meeting of LABASH on the UGA campus. And, in Spring of this year I was on UGA campus as one of four speakers for the National Meeting of LABASH--Landscape Architecture students from throughout the USA who are studying at Land. Arch. academic programs accredited by The American Society of Landscape Architects, Washington, D.C.

 

I worked as a Garden Tour Guide at the nearby Biltmore Estate, which related to my UGA Grad Design in Landscape Architecture Historic Preservation, and I am still preparing illustrated book with 470 captioned photos, The Biltmore Estate in All Seasons, A Photographic Guide. We moved to Black Mountain, NC in late Fall, 2001 from Starkville, MS where I taught for nearly 40 years at MS State U., first in Horticulture then in Land. Arch. which I helped to originate when in Hort. Dept.. Also, I originated a public annual Landscape Design Symposium in 1956 at MSU and it is still going strong, and since we departed MS, it has been renamed in my honor, which I appreciated.

~ Ed. Martin, Class of 1945

 

NOTE:  Ed, perhaps the Rouse family can answer that first question!

 

*** On the list of deceased member of the classes … please add father, John Beck. He was recruited to come to AHS from Calhoun County to play basketball.

 

In 1935, the year he graduated, he played on the team that won the state championship. I think it is the only state basketball championship for AHS.

Several of the people in this photo had kids and grandkids in AHS.

***  I'll look for more information on Clive Rainey. His is a most interesting story. Thanks again for all you do,

~ Robert Vick, Class of 64

 

NOTE:  Will run story on Clive in the January issue!

 

*** Ruth Sasser won the title of Miss Albany in 1956  ...  I remember it well ... am her 1st cousin!

~ Nancy Arthur Moore (’61)

 

*** This email is from my “forever’” brother-in law, Ralph Calhoun,  who has a wonderful sense of humor, and who is the son of popular 4th grade McIntosh teacher, Mrs. Sally Mae Calhoun.  He writes: “I am sure it will make you happy to know that my computer hung up and I took it to the shop to be fixed and they could not fix it. It was a privacy problem and the shop is not authorized to work on privacy problems. So I HAD TO CALL HEWETT PACKARD AND THEY GOT IT RUNNING AGAIN AND THEN THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN. THIS TIME I GOT CONNECTED TO TWO MEN IN INDIA AND THEY GOT THE COMPUTER FIXED. I PESUME MY PRIVACY/SECURITY IS INTACT AND I WILL BE Able to contact the men in India to get it fixed again.

When my old computer was repaired and the people that repaired it deleted my address book. I think you can imagine having to build one's address book from scratch again. You know when I grew up in Albany, scratch was what you fed chickens. We had chickens at 425 Second Avenue.”

 

***  You recently sent out an obituary on Bo Godfrey...AHS 62 classmate & an old friend years ago!!!  I had lost contact with him.  It is very likely that I would not have known of his passing except thru your work with Albany High Times!
You do a good work for all of us.
Thank You so Much,
Richard Stalvey (’62)

 

*** Had a note from one of my Class of l958 classmates telling me that we lost another classmate. Tommy Watson died on November 17th at the Emory University Hospital. Would you please send out a notice to the classmates from our class that you normally send to to let them know?
