CELEBRATES

14 Incredible Years!!!

Tribe Notes ... from Beverly 

 

Many of you already know the story of how our special website began ... but each month we add new Indians ... so for the old and the new ... here goes a bit of history!

 

In April 2002, Charlie Stewart ('55) mailed an article on "Skywater" to me (the wonderful book about Radium Springs written by Morgan Murphy and Lamar Clifton).  It mentioned that the City of Albany was considering "doing away" with the Casino and Pavilion.  Steam came out of my head, my eyes, my ears ... my nose.  I wondered if other Indians had seen this article.  I decided to type the article and email it to a few AHS Indians whose email addresses I had collected.  Suddenly I began to receive an email outcry, and not only that ...  many, representing different class years, included their "memories of Radium" .  And they kept coming!  I decided I couldn't keep those memories to myself and not share; so I began to compile them, emailing them back to the ever-increasing email base.  Then, something else happened ... those people forwarded to other Indians from other classes and THEY began to share memories of Radium, AHS and Teachers - and as memories grew, so did the email base.   The problem was ... keeping up with the memories via email ... to whom I had sent, who was new and needed all of them, etc., became quite a job; so as I had just created a small personal website for myself, I decided to create a few AHS WebPages inside my personal website.

 

That's when an incredible thing began to happen ... the AHS WebPages began to reconnect and bond students who had lost track of one another over the years ... and believe it or not, there was suddenly a whole lot of lovin' goin' on!!!   Moreover, folks who were not necessarily friends in high school ... made new friends.  And it just kept on growing … so much so that I decided to convert the few WebPages within my personal website to a completely independent website for AHS … and named it ... THE ALBANY HIGH TIMES, which I hoped would tell of "times" past, present, and future of our wonderful TRIBE!  Well, it HAS ... thanks to submissions from our staff, and the volumes of emails and information each month sent by other members of our GREAT TRIBE!!!

 

So here we are … having fun looking back … and eagerly anticipating looking forward.   Now, in addition to the MAIN Albany High Times website (because that website became too large) sub-websites were created ... like Radium Springs (www.radiumsprings.albanyhightimes.com), and Archives of "News & Clues" issues. NOTE: the N&C's home page is down, but the following will take you to the page that lists the different months/years (http://newsandclues.albanyhightimes.com/contents.htm). 

Total pages from the three sections number over 400 pages, and we are heading toward 130,000 hits.  There are approximately 2,000 email addresses (some beyond these United States) grouped in classes from 1933 to 2006!  There is also a Search Engine at http://www.albanyhightimes.com/search_engine.htm.

 

It's been a great journey ... but my greatest fear is that the outdated web program I use will someday become incompatible with the new fangled servers used by my "host" company ... and frankly who can blame them for striving to have "the best" available for their customers.  Problems have already cropped up; but I've been able to work around them to some degree - but every month my program misbehaves on their servers. I try to find workarounds ... and sometimes I just can't.  Soooooo ... one day my fear is ... my program will stop limping along and just quit.  I want to keep "the original look" and the thought of recreating over 400 web pages on a new-fangled program ... frankly blows my mind! 

 

Yet to think of all the years of this website becoming what it has become, yet in the face of what lies ahead ... as the King of Siam would say ... "Iz a puzzlement"!!!

 

Many Thanks To  ....

... all the wonderful Indians who have emailed thoughts and  information used in our monthly "News & Clues" ...  y'all made our newsletter possible!  To be honest ... many folks don't peruse the website ... but they love the newsletter!  It has been the glue that bonded us!

55th Reunion

May 19 - 20,  2017

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

The Class of 1962 has changed the date for our 55th reunion to May 19 and 20, 2017.

 

We know it is hard to accommodate everyone and hope this will work for most of you who want to come. We will be working on more plans this fall.

 

Paul Wallace has again graciously offered his yard and home for our event. No other plans have been made at this time. If you have any input or want to be part of the planning please contact Jonnie Holley Douglas (jonnieholleydaouglas@gmail.com), Eleanor Banks Simpson (ysam04@mchsi.com) or me.

We will set another time to meet in the fall.

60th Reunion 

May 12 - 13, 2017 (date change)

Class of '57 Reunion Committee has met and begun work on our 60th reunion! It will take place on the weekend of May 12th and 13th, 2017, and the venue for both nights will be Merry Acres.

Class of '57 Reunion Committee has met and begun work on our 60th reunion! It will take place on the weekend of May 12th and 13th, 2017, and the venue for both nights will be Merry Acres. Ā  We would like for our class members to e-mail their e-mail addresses as well as their mailing addresses to us, and if there are some who haven't quite figured out the computer/internet workings yet, they could call either Mariellen or me. Merry Acres Motel has "blocked out" some rooms for us which can be accessed by calling them at 229.435.7721, and telling the reservation clerk that they are attending the Class of '57 Reunion.

 

By providing this much advance notice, it allows our classmates to go ahead and put a 2nd or 3rd mortgage on their home to pay for the face lift, tummy tuck, toupee and dental implants. 

 

We haven't had a reunion since our 50th in 2007, which by all accounts was the best AHS Reunion ever had. Ray Ragsdale Stevens entertained us Friday night at a grand piano with a medley of his many songs, and then on Saturday night we danced to the music of a 16 piece orchestra that he brought down at his expense from Nashville. Albany had never seen nor heard a band like this one. They played all the songs from our era and sounded as good as if not better than the original artists.

>>> Maynard Sell <<<

AHS Band & Choral Director

 

Maynard Sell, Director of AHS Band and Chorus ... and later at the University of Mississippi, is the creator of  this incredible arrangement of "Dixie".   It was submitted by Martin Stewart to Charles Gillespie ('62).  I hope to have some more history and recordings next month ... in the meantime, here's Mr. Sell's arrangement of Dixie.  I know, at least the band members of 1962 participated !  I hope to fill in the blanks in the September issue.

In the meantime, enjoy the recording below (must be opened in Internet Explorer or like-kind), and some memories of Mr. Sell!!!

"DIXIE"

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B1VO-NnmShVMaEFiNTVOdjdzQU0&usp=sharing

*** Mr. Sell stood up to direct the band and Pam looked down and Mr. Sell had a loafer on his left foot and a lace up shoe on his right. He had never noticed this until someone pointed it out. He was a very devoted and dedicated teacher. His daughter told me at Mrs. Sell's funeral that she was named after me. I was very honored and surprised.

~ Pam Tyler Johnston  - AHS 1955

***  I do have fond memories of Mr. Sell and being in the Marching Band. I believe Mr. Sell was a new music director in 1950-51. As a senior I had the privilege of accompanying several soloists (singers and instrumentalists) for various competitions in the area. We rehearsed a lot at the Sell home and he was always kind in his critique of us student musicians. His wife, Molly, always had cokes or lemonade on hand. I remember playing for Elliott Jenkins (trumpet). I thought he was great.

 

Another great memory about the band was the 7th period practices at the stadium. In those days we played a new show every week!  Harry Helton ('52) was always a hit as Chief Tomahawk!!!!!! Mr. Sell did it all - band, pep band for basketball, glee club and various trios, quartets and the triple trio of girls.  I think Mr. Sell had an influence in my deciding to become a public school music teacher.

~ Cathy Holt Norton '52

 

*** Every time I hear "On Wisconsin", I think of Maynard Sell. He was so proud of his home state and music was in his spirit. He was able to encourage and inspire his students and make it fun. Whether it was a concert, a parade, or a football game, his goal was excellence. Being in the band for two years was the highlight of my high school years. I learned leadership and it gave me confidence to try out and be accepted into the UGA band. Mr. Sell also conducted the Glee Club. One time we were singing for a civic club luncheon at Radium Springs. Word was passed around for all the girls to take off one ear ring. After we began singing, his eyes darted from one to another as he discovered the prank. Then his face turned beet red. It was really hard for us to keep a straight face. My only regret is that I never went back to thank him.

~ Helen (Paulsen) Arndt, Class of 1953

*** About AHS***
(c) 2002 Joseph E. Rossman

 

We have these precious memories, and am I ever glad.
We've shared lots of e-mails, more than just a tad.
The bits and words flashed back and forth through the wires and air,
And sometimes people said some things that really weren't too fair.
But some folks said some good things,
that remind us of the joys and times when we were only kids,
just teen age girls and boys.
So come on in and join us, We'd love to have you here.
We'll swap a lie and tell a joke, and have a virtual beer.
We'll talk about our grand old school Our dear old AHS.
We'll swap pictures of our grandkids, and our kids--and us,
Oh Yes. And we'll remember Radium, We'll remember Mr. Mac,
And all those special memories will take us all right back.
So come on in and join the crowd We've room for many more.
We want us all packed in Until we're falling out the door.

Cause AHS is special, And you are special too. 

I'm glad that I'm a part of it, and glad that you are too.

Congratulations!!!
To AHS Alumni Weekend Attendees
Making $10,000 Donation
to
Albany High!!!
 

http://www.walb.com/story/32714005/alumni-make-big-donation-to-albany-high

A Dougherty County high school received a big check Monday night. 

Alumni that attended the Alumni Weekend event donated $10,000 to Albany High School.

Dougherty County School System spokesperson J.D. Sumner said that the money can be used as the school sees fit. 

"We're thrilled that they decided to have such a generous spirit about them. And we look forward to seeing how best we can serve the students with that extra cash," said Sumner.

But officials said, in the past, such large donations have been used for programs like re-paving walkways or donating to school social clubs.

*** Just wanted to let you know I celebrated my 101st birthday on July 9th! Thanks for continuing to send me the newsletters. Even though my eyesite is failing, I do have people here to read me your newsletters.

Also wanted to take this opportunity of thanking you for the wonderful job you do keeping us all informed on Albany High.
All the best,
~ Chester Green, AHS Class of 1933


               
***HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHESTER!!!***

*** Mary Martin, Class of 1961 is not deceased. Trust me, I'm still here!
Thanks! ~ Mary
NOTE: Bless your heart - thanks for letting us know! Have removed your name from "In Memoriam" and added to the email list with your 1961 classmates! ~ BSH

*** Just wanted to let you know how your articles can unexpectedly bless someone!  I read through the Tribe Notes article [about your daughter and how she contributed to our Albany High Times], and the last sentence that mentioned her grandmother, Mrs. Sallie Mae Calhoun really hit me. She became my favorite teacher of all time. I was in her class when my mother passed away. I can't remember the details, but do remember her support for me during that time. She was a great lady!
~ Dan Lipsey ('56)

*** You might want to put something about Betty English Arnold in the AHS paper. She is the daughter of (Warren) Lee Hall, Class of 1957, and she is a full time missionary in Burkina Faso in Africa.
~ Barbara Bennett Pippin ('57)
NOTE:  Thank you so much ... will include an article on Betty in September!!! ~ BSH

*** Please add my brother, Charles R. McBurnett, Class of 1963, to "Those Who Served". He is retired from the City of Albany and is now working on his 2nd retirement from Lee County. I asked him a year or so ago, "Charles when are you going to retire? He said, "Why should I retire?" He joined the Marines on the "join now and serve later"¯ while he was a senior at AHS in 63. He left for Paris Island that summer. He learned to be an automotive mechanic in the Marines. He did his 13 months in Viet Nam in about 65-66. When he came home they assigned him to MCLB Albany. He almost fainted sitting at the kitchen table that night when he opened his orders and saw Albany GA as his final duty station. After he was discharged, he went straight to work for the City of Albany at the shop where they work on all the vehicles. He retired from there a long time ago after 20+ years. I think by now he probably has another 20 or so at Lee County's shop. He is their manager.
Thanks for all you do,
~ Carolyn McBurnett Parks AHS '71

*** Hello, Albany High Times ... Butch and Mary Nelle Clifton celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on July 30th. My Father (Butch) requested that I send to you this great and celebratory news. Thank you for posting this. All the best,

NOTE: http://albanyhightimes.com/indian_pride.htm  Recommended reading!! - A Great Story! (Now if I can find out what class was Butch's class, I'll be pleased!)

*** Our reunion committee met last night and we discussed the fact that Albany will be hosting the State High School Track Meet Championships the week-end of May 5th and 6th of 2017, the weekend chosen for our reunion. Because of the extreme crowds that this event draws to Albany tying up motel rooms, dining facilities, etc., we have decided to move our event to the following week-end, May 12th and 13th, 2017. Would you please include this information in your next newsletter? Thanks for your help and all you do to keep the AHS Spirit alive and well.

~ Margaret Vick Weimer, Class of 1951
NOTE:
James called me to say that Helen had attended a service where he preached. I told him I had already heard the news from another Indian!  Friendly smoke signals travel fast! ~ BSH

*** I read in the Boulder paper that Jim Calhoun (Class of 1950) was giving the sermon July 3rd at Mt. View Methodist in Boulder CO and we drove over to meet/greet him. I did not know Jim at AHS but Margaret Vick Weimer ('51) told me years ago that he and (Rev.) Jimmy Barnes (deceased - Class of 1950) were living in Denver. We met Jim's wife and son, Chuck.

Sincerely,

A Reminder!

Once An Indian ... Always An Indian!!

Many of our Indians left AHS before graduation ... the reasons are many.   However, they were a special part of their class and friends for many years before they left!!!!

 

Once an Indian ... always an Indian ... so please don't ever hesitate to send news of any kind from an Indian who did not graduate with their class for any reason. Many are forever connected ... and that's what the Albany High Times seeks to honor!!!
