Her life had a beautiful view - Macon Telegraph (blog)

Sun, Jan 29, 2012
Georgia. It wasn’t easy being a single mother with four children between the ages of 3 and 14. But she managed to keep it all together. Twice a week, she would drive them to their music lessons in Macon. At supper, she always made sure they had a green and a yellow vegetable on their plates. At night, she would crawl into bed with them and read them books. She served as a social worker at Central State Hospital for 28 years. She was assigned to the forensics building to work with patients who were regarded as criminally insane. She also spent time with troubled youths and the chronically mentally ill. To help pay all the bills, she moonlighted as a secretary at a nearby vocational-technical school. “She was the consummate social worker, both by profession and by nature,’’ said Beck. “She was always helping others.’’ Although Martha retired in 1990, she never sat still. She enrolled in classes at Georgia College in music, history and writing. Her daughter, Laura, remembers a college student once coming up to their table at The Brick restaurant on West Hancock Street. “Miss Martha!” he shouted and gave her a hug. They had taken a class together. Yes, she was young at heart. She taught piano and contributed to a book, “Milledgeville Tapestry,” that was published by the Learning in Retirement writer’s group to which she belonged. There was never an empty nest when her children left home. She took in college students, offering them room and board for next to nothing. But that’s just the way she was -- smart, independent and kind. It’s amazing how a lady who could barely see could help so many others find their way. Reach Gris at 744-4275 or gris@macon.com.

Howard Tate, Soul Singer Who Made Comeback, Dies at 72

Wed, Dec 7, 2011
Friday at his apartment in Burlington, N.J. He was 72. His death was confirmed by a spokesman for the Burlington County medical examiner. No specific cause was given. Born in 1939 in Macon, Ga., and reared in Philadelphia, Mr. Tate had three Top 20 rhythm-and-blues hits in the late 1960s and early 1970s, including “Get It While You Can,” written by his longtime producer Jerry Ragovoy (who died this year) and later recorded by Janis Joplin. He toured with Aretha Franklin as her recording of “Respect” climbed the charts in 1967. But he eventually walked away fr... (New York Times)

Confederate soldiers remembered by descendants - LubbockOnline.com

Sun, Dec 4, 2011
I sure am sorry, sir.” The Civil War veterans who fought for the South were like that, too. Alonzo J. Aven, who served until he was discharged on May 8, 1865, in Macon, Miss., and later lived in Lubbock County, left an eye-witness account of a death on the battlefield. It is recorded in Dickson’s “Stories on Stone.” “The first battle I was in was at Grenada on the banks of the Yellabusha River. We had only one company, and there were only 50 or 60 of our company, and 400 or 500 Northern soldiers. The battle lasted about an hour with the river between us. We cut the cable to the pontoon bridge while the river was bank full. The Northern soldiers could not cross, hence they retreated.” Aven wrote of a later confrontation, “The next battle was at Succatonchi Bridge in Mississippi where Bill Forrest, a brother of Gen. Forrest, was killed. “I saw Bill Forrest not later than two minutes after he was shot, and saw his brother, Gen. Bedford Forrest, get off his horse on the battlefield and kiss his brother, and then got on his horse and rode away.” The modern-day Sons of the Confederacy now continue the memory of the men before them with a line from “Dixie,” their song of the South: “Old times there are not forgotten.” To comment on this story: ray.westbrook@lubbockonline.com • 766-8711 leesha.faulkner@lubbockonline.com • 766-8706 ...

Lisa Kurts exhibited art passion

Tue, Nov 1, 2011
Kurts Ltd., acquires and sells late 19th and early and mid-20th century master paintings to collectors and museums. Born in Jackson, Miss., and raised in Helena, Ark., Ms. Kurts attended Randolph-Macon College in Lynchburg, Va., where she roomed with her first cousin, Blanche Lincoln, a former U.S. senator from Arkansas. Ms. Kurts' interest in art was spurred when she worked at the college's Maier Museum of Art as assistant to the curator, and she switched her major after her first semester from premed to art history. She came to Memphis in 1981 to work with Bingham. Ms. Kurts' father died when she was a child, and her mother married Robert Hornor; both are deceased. David Lusk, owner of the eponymous gallery in Laurelwood, worked for Ms. Kurts from 1988 to 1995. "I had a lot of fun working with Lisa," said Lusk. "She was a very talented dealer, especially from a design sense, meaning that her esthetic for art and her sense of display were gratifying and beautiful. She gave me an appreciation of the fine arts and an appreciation for working with artists. Particularly in those early years, she put a real spin on contemporary art for Memphis." Ms. Kurts is survived by Barker and by her sister, Dana Russell Kurts. A service will be held at 11 a.m. Nov. 5 at St. John's Episcopal Church in Helena, Ark. Roller-Citizens Funeral Home in West Helena has charge. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of the donor's choice. (The Commercial Appeal)
