Hello Friends! Change. It’s a simple word that packs a punch. It is true that change is inevitable.   It is not always bad nor is it always good.  It can be expected or it can come totally out of the blue.   But the only sure thing is that change happens.  I have experienced some changes in my life since our last issue. Some were good; others were not so good.  My grandmother, or Nannie, as I always called her, passed away in April at the

age of 77. Growing up, we lived right next door to her.  She was, as are most southern ladies, a wonderful cook, and I have had my share of some of the best food and cakes around.   Nannie always had ice cream — that is one thing you could count on — and you had better believe that my sister and I enjoyed plenty ice cream sandwiches.  To this day, if I eat or even see an ice cream sandwich, Nannie is the first person who comes to mind. Once long ago (me being a typical boy up to something I knew better than) I decided that my papa’s crickets he used for fishing needed to be fed.  So I found a potato out in the garden and a knife in the shed, and I proceeded to cut the potato.  I had seen it done before.  Only it wasn’t the potato that I cut. It was my thumb and the gash was nearly to the bone. Aer trying to hide it, my sister quickly realized the growing red stain on my white shirt was not part of its design.   I insisted on going to Nannie’s house where she cleaned me up, doctored my thumb and had me back out playing before I knew it.   Of course there was an ice cream sandwich involved in that event as well. My first trip to Disney World and my first time seeing the Smoky Mountains were both with Nannie. ese are memories that I will forever cherish. She was always proud of me and of this magazine and got a copy of every issue.  Sadly her passing leaves me without any grandmothers, and that’s something that I find hard to fathom. As I said earlier though, sometimes change can be good.  Recently I did something I have wanted to do for more than a decade.  I completed and passed the Georgia real estate course and state exam. Now in addition to being a publisher, I am a licensed Georgia real estate agent.  Nothing beats the feeling of finally accomplishing a long-held dream.  I have joined Browning Brass Key Realty as its new agent, and I look forward to learning all I can in this new venture.   But, don’t worry. Moultrie Magazine isn’t going anywhere. You see, publishing this magazine is another dream of mine that came true. It’s also something I absolutely love doing. As you can see, a lot can happen between issues.  I hope that time has treated you well since I last wrote to you. I hope that you will continue to support us at Moultrie Magazine as we continue working to promote what is, in our opinion, the best place to call home. Here’s to change. Here’s to dreams. And most importantly, here’s to you!

Hello Again! I love springtime. It’s a time for new life and renewal. is year it seems that spring came early as the pollen was already covering my car way back in February. e trees and azaleas began to bloom well before Easter. Few communities are as pretty to me as Moultrie during spring. e whole area comes to life with blooming azaleas and dogwoods which are scattered all over the city. I have always appreciated this, perhaps not as much when I was younger as I do now, but still today I sometimes find myself getting too busy to stop and just take in the Jim Hill beauty around us. We live in a very fastpaced world today — much faster than when I was growing up. We didn’t have cell phones, high-definition televisions or the Internet or any of today’s modern conveniences. Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy all of the shiny new things that we’re blessed to have today. Recently someone asked me for a phone number, and of course, I couldn’t recall it off the top of my head. I had to grab my cell phone to look it up. I couldn’t help thinking how the cell phone has virtually ended our memorization of phone numbers. Before I had one, I knew all kinds of numbers from memory. Now with everything programmed into our phones, I have to look up numbers if I need to write them down or give them to someone else. Back in the day, if we didn’t know a number, we looked it up in a phonebook. Now all you have to do is look it up right there on your phone. When you went off on a trip, you let your close friends and family know, and then they wouldn’t hear from you until you got to another phone or aer you returned. Now with cell phones, we panic if a loved one goes off on a trip and we don’t hear from them aer a short while. If ever I drive off and leave my phone, I almost panic; I think, “What if I need my phone to call in an emergency or what if someone can’t get in touch with me?” It begs the question: How did people get hold of us before cell phones? I guess perhaps we were not as busy as we are today. But with all the busy days, let’s stop for a moment and take in the life around us. Aer all, it goes by so fast you certainly don’t want to miss it! And speaking of renewal, in this issue we are grateful to be able to share with you Rush Propst’s newfound appreciation for life aer a battle with throat cancer. You’ll be amazed at his courage and honesty as he shares his story with our Allen Edwards. We’re also excited to share with you another one of Moultrie’s landmark homes — the Holman house. And finally, we bring you the story of how mosaics became one local artist’s niche. You’ll especially enjoy the exclusive photos we have from her first exhibit at the arts center. From beginning to end, this is one of our best issues. I hope you enjoy reading every word. Happy Spring!

e Holman house, on the corner of Second Street Southeast and 13th Avenue Southeast, exemplifies the feeling of a bygone era and modern luxury. Current owner Benjamin English says the neoclassical style house was designed and built in 1949 by architect H.L. Holman Jr. for his cousin, J.L. Holman and his wife, Fannie Will Holman. Holman’s father, John Clinton Holman, first owned Holman Mule Company downtown, and in 1921 he sent his son here from Ala-

In addition to the main house, a guest house with a three-car garage is out back. e guest house provides an additional 900 sq. feet and has two bedrooms and a bathroom. e entire property consists of approximately two acres, which is large for a residential house located within city limits. Tom Holman, who

John and Dorothy McConahey, the previous owners, bought the house in 2003 aer seeing it listed in Preservation, the magazine published by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

English had a new roof put on, and he remodeled the kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and the sunroom. He says these renovations have really allowed him to call the Holman house his own. “is is a very livable house,” English says, “and I love it. It feels so homey for being such a large home.” Even with the renovations made, Eng-

lish says there are still some original parts that give the house its historic charm. All of the detailed molding is still in place, and it has all of its original marble fireplaces. e library also has the original pine paneling in it, but it has since been converted into a den. e Holman house was designed with a modern feel in mind even before the renovations that have been made since, English says. e kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are all larger than most homes that were built during the era. e house has 14-foot ceilings in the main living areas and includes a basement, suspended staircase and a working elevator. English says the McConahey’s influence remains in the house. Several pieces of furniture were acquired for the house by Dorothy’s sister, who was head designer for Sears & Roebuck Co. Several original paintings owned by the couple

hang throughout the house, and the chandelier in the foyer, from a castle in Spain, was installed by them and converted from gas to electric. e chandeliers in the dining room are French crystal. e outside renovations done by the McConaheys include an irrigation system. English’s favorite piece in the home is the grand piano that McConahey had custom built for his daughter who passed away in 2003. English says the Holman house is truly a showpiece, and he says he loves having the available space. He says he enjoys spending time in the sunroom, his favorite room, on spring and fall days, and he has hosted family gatherings and Christmas parties there. English says he believes the house was designed for family, and it is reflected in its design. “You can tell when Mr. Holman designed it [that] he really took his time in the layout of it,” English says.

hat does it mean to preserve the South? Well, in the simple mind of a South Georgia girl, a Colquitt County native that grew up and still lives in the small town of Norman Park, it means a variety of things. As I travel and work from day to day, I share my passion of “preserving” and most

W

Colquitt County, I feel very blessed. I attend Norman Park First Baptist Church. I feel that my duty as a Christian member in that fellowship is to “preserve” what our church forefathers built and established a very long time ago— a warm and inviting place to worship, pray and gather with other Christians. As a wife and mother of two children, I feel very obligated to “preserve” my family and our heritage. I want to offer our children the same loving and strong family environment that Mike and I grew up in. I want our children to always remember every special event they participated in so that they can continue to carry on those traditions for their families. At our house, every special occasion was and still is a “big deal.” Celebrating the school year’s end and summertime has always been one of those occasions. As the end of school approaches and summer nears, the blood in my body be-

Well, at Lauri Jo’s, we are constantly seeking ways to “preserve” those precious moments with you throughout the year. We are now offering canning and cooking classes during May, July and August. Please visit our website at www.laurijos.com for more information or to check out the other activities we have going on. We would love to be a part of the special event you’re planning whether it’s a class or family reunion or wedding. Let us help you with your favors for those events by giving our mini jars of jams or pepper jellies that we can put your name or date on or you can always use our logo to promote Colquitt County. We also love to entertain groups for field trips. From seasoned seniors to school children, we love to have all ages visit our production facility

If that is what you were thinking too, I hate to burst your bubble; preserving goes much deeper than that for me. Yes, if you ask anyone around here what preserving means, you will probably get the answer of canning vegetables, jellies, jams and pickles. at is a very true statement. We do that every day in our business at Lauri Jo’s. But as our business has grown, I like to look at other ways of preserving. Growing up in Norman Park and in

Perhaps the most terrifying three words a doctor can tell a patient: You. Have. Cancer. No other medical term carries cancer’s weight, and none shares its singular connotative value of total destruction. Sure, other diseases are equally, if not more, devastating than cancer. But for the common man, for you and me, receiving a diagnosis of cancer feels like a death sentence. en, there are the survivors. To them, cancer brought life, not death. Instead of a terminal illness, it was a resurrection of sorts. New perspectives. New values. Healthier outlooks on life. Cancer for its survivors is the glorious abomination, the strange intermingling between the hellish and the divine. at road through hell to survival started innocently enough for Colquitt County High School’s head football coach, Rush Propst. In the spring of 2010, Propst lost his sense of taste. He wasn’t alarmed, primarily because it helped him shed a few unwanted pounds. “I was trying to cut back anyway and it was easier because my tastes were so different,” he says. “I thought, man, this weight loss is working.” However, that September, Propst developed a sore throat. “I thought it was just pine pollen or something,” he says. When the sore throat persisted, he made an appointment with Dr. Kirby Smith. “I thought it might be strep throat because several players were diagnosed with it,” he says. “I was using Chloraseptic spray by the gobs.” Propst says he took a variety of antibiotics that cleared up the sore throat, but his tastes never returned.

18

Stefnie Propst, Rush’s wife, says her husband told her oen that he didn’t feel well that fall. “He just wasn’t himself,” she says. “I told Rush it had to be the sinus surgery he had in the spring.” He continued to lose an average of three pounds per week, largely because his food had little or no taste. One meal in particular, on October 1, 2010, stands out to Propst. He invited his coaches over to watch a football game between Alabama and Florida and grilled steaks for the occasion. “I remember cooking it for everyone and sitting back and not eating,” he says. “I took two bites of everything and it just did not taste good.” Aer that, his only meals were milkshakes. Propst would oen drink three per day. From July to November, he lost nearly 30 pounds. Two weeks aer his visit to Dr. Smith, Propst says a knot popped up. He visited Dr. Raymond Aldridge, who he says initially diagnosed it as a bronchial cle cyst — a fairly harmless lump that develops in the neck and can be removed or drained if infected. Dr. Aldridge drained the lump and sent off the fluid for testing. It came back negative and Propst continued preparing his squad for the 2010 playoffs. Just a few weeks later, however, the morning aer the Packers defeated Mill Creek in the quarterfinals, Propst discovered the knot had returned. “I was getting ready to come to work because we were playing Grayson in the semifinals that week,” he says. “It had grown back fast.”

Still, Propst put off seeing a doctor until aer the season. Stefnie Propst remembers that morning well. “He said that when we got finished [with the season] he would just have it drained again,” she says. Propst had the Packers in the middle of a playoff run that Moultrie had not seen in a decade. “I didn’t feel like I had time to deal with it,” he says. Propst’s Packers defeated Grayson before losing to Brookwood the next week in the Packers’ first state championship appearance since 1994. When the season ended, he called Dr. Aldridge again, who then recommended Propst have the knot removed. Propst, however, had promised to take his family to Disney World and postponed the surgery. He postponed it a second time to coach the Georgia-Florida War of the Border high school all-stars game. “I was just too busy,” he says. On January 11, 2011, Drs. Aldridge and Robert Brown removed the lump from his neck. Propst says neither immediately thought the lump looked cancerous but sent it off to Dr. Anthony Moser. e next few days were tense, as Propst waited for the doctor’s call. “I had the surgery on Tuesday,” he says. “By Friday I hadn’t heard anything, and I was nervous.” Dr. Brown called the following Tuesday, January 18, 2011, a date Propst says he will never forget. “I could tell by his voice something was disturbing him,” he says. Dr. Brown told Propst that the test had come back positive for squamous cell carcinoma.

A pathologist at Shands Hospital then confirmed it. A PET scan showed cancer on both sides of Propst’s throat. “I was diagnosed with full-blown throat cancer,” he says. Squamous cell carcinoma, which accounts for nearly 90-percent of throat cancer diagnoses, oen initially presents with benign symptoms: a hoarse voice, an ulcer that won’t heal or, as in Propst’s case, a persistent sore throat. “You’re lucky if a knot appears,” says Propst. “You just pass it off as sinus problems, and you start losing weight.” Looking back, Propst credits an extensive network of friends for helping him find the best possible care. “Somehow during that whole conversation, when you first realize you are in a traumatic experience, you have to be able to sit back, relax, and take deep breaths,” says Propst, who also says the decisions one makes about treatment options must be taken seriously. “I make important decisions on Friday nights in a matter of seconds, but decisions on your treatment are about life or death.”

moval of cancer and a surgical oncologist who specializes in throat and neck cancers. “Scott is at the cutting edge,” says Propst. Magnuson immediately gave Propst good news. e original PET scan incorrectly showed cancer on both sides of the throat. Magnuson confirmed it only on Propst’s le side. As well, new protocols called for Propst to undergo radiation treatments before the doctor would remove the tumor. If his cancer had been discovered only a few months earlier, Propst would have had a much more invasive surgery to remove the tumor. On February 4, 2011, Propst underwent a tonsillectomy. A few weeks later, he had a second surgery, a lymphadenectomy, to remove almost all of the lymph nodes of the le side of his neck. e surgery was a success, and doctors found cancer in only one of his lymph nodes. He wasn’t finished with surgery, however. Doctors went back and removed

“I’ve learned that football, like life, can throw some twists at you,” he says. “One week you’re up, the next you’re down.” One of the first people Propst reached out to was close friend Tony Franklin, current offensive coordinator for the University of California at Berkeley. At the time, however, Franklin was offensive coordinator at Louisiana Tech. He came to Moultrie to recruit one of Propst’s players, running back Tevin King. Franklin, himself a cancer survivor, encouraged Propst to meet with Dr. Kirby Bland, head of surgical oncology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham (UAB). “I had cancer at age 23 and never once thought I was going to die,” says Franklin, “and I had the same feeling then.” “He was going to be fine,” Franklin says. He says all the people he knew who had cancer and survived did so by staying positive and focusing on living rather than dying. On January 25, Propst drove to Birmingham’s Kirklin Clinic to meet with Bland, who referred Propst to Dr. Scott Magnuson, a pioneer in the robotic re-

parts of Propst’s tongue, as the cancer was more widespread than original predicted. “We thought going in it was stage one or two,” says Propst, “but I had stage four cancer of the throat and tonsils.” Propst also lost five of his teeth, a casualty of his radiation treatments. e location of the cancer and the aftermath of the surgeries le Propst unable to eat solid food. He spent weeks on a strict liquid diet consisting primarily of ice cream, Jell-O, and popsicles. Propst was soon down to 195 pounds. Propst chose to stay in Birmingham for his treatment, took a leave of absence in April and May, and turned over the team to Kevin Giddens, assistant coach. He initially intended to coach while convalescing but found it impossible to do more than survive. “We had this grand idea that I would sit in front of a computer and watch practice and make daily decisions,” says Propst, who soon found himself so sick

from the radiation that he couldn’t make any decisions. “Kevin would call me [to get input] out of his loyalty, but I couldn’t have cared less about what was going on inside the walls of the football office from about April 9 to May 18 when I got back.” For seven weeks, he did little more than receive treatments at UAB and sleep in a home there owned by Shawn Sutton, who had recently been hired as strength coach for the Packers. Propst says Sutton’s home, which he was grateful to use, remains the home of terrible memories. “ere are places and events in your life that scar you forever,” says Propst of the mark the house le on him. “It’s dark, that road and that house and that room. It scares me.” He slept most days and couldn’t eat. He was quickly down to 180 pounds. “To this day I even get a little nauseated when I go back to Birmingham,” Propst says. “I don’t think I could drive down that road to Coach Sutton’s house without having a bad feeling.” “I’m glad he sold that house,” says Stefnie Propst. Propst returned to Moultrie as the team was ending spring practice. ough he was back in Moultrie, he remained engulfed in the same darkness that surrounded him in Birmingham. “When you finish a treatment, you think it’s over and you don’t have to do it anymore,” says Propst. He says he thought he would immediately feel better in spite of the warnings given to him by the nurses at UAB. “at’s not how radiation works,” he says. His depression deepened. Two weeks aer his return, Propst reached the low point of his life. “I was at 50/50 whether or not I wanted to live on May 30,” says Propst. “I remember a friend told me that there were going to be days when if you could just reach up and hit a switch and be gone you would do it.” “at was one of those days,” he says. Propst says a conversation with his cousin, Aaron Acker, also a cancer survivor, helped him turn the corner. “He said it’s like when we played high school football,” says Propst, tearfully. “You have to just suck it up. He was right.” Aer the conversation with Acker, Propst saw the world differently. Following the phone call, Propst says he got up from bed and walked around

He rejoined the coaching staff before the start of the

Franklin, who calls Propst the best football coach he knows, says the will to live is the most important part of fighting any illness. “I’m sure Rush was inspired by his family and friends,” says Franklin.

season. He started by working two hours each day and gradually increased his time commitment. By the time his team had reached the playoffs, Propst was working 12 to 14 hours per day. He also reacquainted with his taste buds. By anksgiving, Propst estimates he had regained 90-percent of his tastes. e day before, he felt good enough to go hunting with his son and killed a deer.

On anksgiving Day, he sat down for a “big meal” for the first time in a year. e next day, Propst’s Packer squad beat Camden County in the playoffs on an impossible, last-second, 4th and 23 touchdown pass. “I can count on one hand how many weeks like that I have had,” says Propst, calling it a “pretty good week.” e next week wasn’t as wonderful, as the Grayson Rams beat the Packers in a game the Pack led into the last minute. Propst, however, waxes philosophical about the Grayson loss. “I’ve learned that football, like life, can throw some twists at you,” he says. “One week you’re up, the next you’re down.” Cancer has changed more than Propst’s attitude toward losing. Propst says his sickness gave him time for introspection he had never taken before. Stefnie Propst agrees. “He used to be so busy that he couldn’t take it all in,” she says. “Now he’s a lot more emotional and pays more attention.” at increased attention has made Propst a more thoughtful man. “He is more analytical than he used to be, if that is even possible,” Stefnie Propst says, laughing. “His perspective is so different and he seems so much more passionate about everything.” It’s hard to imagine Propst more passionate than he is on the football field. “I had been groomed to have a mindset that was all about football,” Propst says. “I was 100-percent about winning and winning only, and I didn’t care who I had to run over to do it.” He says through his sickness he learned to treat people differently. “I am a better person, father, and husband than I used to be,” he says. “I’m hoping to change that opinion that people formed of me ten years ago.”

While Propst says he has unfinished business in football and plans to continue coaching as long as his health allows him, he now understands life away from the game. “I’m as competitive as I have ever been,” he says, “but I can leave this game and still feel like a complete man.” Propst has been cancer-free for almost two years now as he busily prepares the Packers for the 2013 season, which is already special for a number of reasons.

“You have to listen to what your body is telling you,” he says. “You have an obligation to your family to get checked out if you think there is a problem.” e second is to understand treatment options. “You have choices about where you will go to get treatment,” he says. “Search around, talk to people, and find out where the best place is to go for yourself.” Finally, Propst says, is funding for research. “You have got to contribute to charities and foundations because it is so critical that we learn how to cure these diseases, especially in children,” he says. “We have come a long way, but we’re not there yet.” at Propst has a threestep plan for fighting cancer should not come as a shock to anyone who knows Colquitt County High School’s football coach, and neither should his passion when disPhoto by Alan Cortez cussing the issue.

Midnight Dream

Spring 2013


er a lifetime of trying various disciplines of art, Angela Tillman has found the one that she was truly destined to do. e 42-year-old hairstylist and Berlin native says her mom taught her to have an appreciation for all kinds of arts and cras. She says she has always done some form of art as a hobby, including painting, knitting and basket weaving, but it was a visit to a bookstore that forever changed her artistic vision. While walking through the store about four years ago, Tillman says she saw a book on mosaics, and she liked what she saw as she looked through it. She bought the book, took it home, and later bought materials. As a result, she made herself a stepping stone in the shape of a fish. “It is fun,” Tillman says. “I really enjoy it.” A mosaic is made by taking objects, such as glass or stone, and using them to Caretta create a picture, Tillman says. Once the picture is complete, the pieces are grouted to set them in place. Tillman continued to work on various projects using mosaics, and she says she taught herself how to do it, making several pieces for family and friends. Her passion for mosaics led to the creation of Bohemian Roots Mosaics, which she hopes to turn into a full-time business. She says mosaic art is similar to laying down tile on a floor or a wall, but mosaics are created using much smaller pieces and on a smaller scale. Every piece used to create a mosaic artwork is hand-cut by the artist. “You are pretty much creating a picture and setting it in grout,” Tillman says. Many artists who create this form of art use porcelain tiles to create their pieces, but Tillman says her pieces are made using a different material. She began by ordering stained glass to make some of her first pieces, and she became hooked Embrace the Pale

on using it. She says she was always fascinated by colored glass, such as that found in bottles and marbles, when she was a child. Her love of glass continues to this day, and the glass she uses is similar to glass used to make stained glass windows, with the only difference being her glass is solid instead of transparent. Although she enjoys using glass to make her artwork, it does cause her to get cuts and bleed while using it, but she says it allows her to truly put her blood, sweat and tears into her work. “My DNA is on all of my work,” Tillman says. Since beginning with mosaics, Tillman says she has done about 25 pieces. She started off making them for herself, her friends and members of her family, but she has also done some commissioned work for other people. When she saw the interest that her work generated, she decided to do something with it and thus created Bohemian Roots Mosaics. Tillman says her intention was to

faster than she expected when the Colquitt County Arts Center contacted her to display 15 pieces of art in an exhibit that concluded in late April. Tillman says she was surprised at how quickly she was able to do a gallery showing, but she says she had to get several of the pieces back that she had made for family and friends in order to have enough to do the exhibit. Some of the pieces that were on display were available for purchase, and Tillman says she is working on a way to make her work available to a larger audience. She says she is in the process of creating a website for Bohemian Roots Mosaics. Currently she has a Facebook page that displays a limited number of her pieces. Tillman says she would also like to build a studio at the old homestead she purchased from her grandparents five years ago — not only to display her collection but also to give her a place to create

Aer the showing at the arts center was completed, Tillman says she was able to put some of her mosaics on display in nearby co-op artist galleries. Although she says the arts center is a great place, she says she would also like to see an artist co-op gallery in Moultrie, and she says she believes with all the artistic talent here, it will become a reality in the near future. Tillman says she is constantly working on new art, spending at least three hours a day on them, whether by sketching or building a frame or cutting tile and laying it down. Most of the inspiration for her pieces comes from animals, nature or music, but she says she is also planning to do landscape pieces and even portraits. Each piece takes her between 40 and 80 hours to com-

improves with each completed work. “With each piece that I make,” Tillman says, “I am learning.” Tillman says she names most of the pieces that she creates, and the name usually comes to her while she is working on it. Some of the pieces she has named depend on who she is making it for and the inspiration behind it. ere are not many local artists who specialize in mosaics, Tillman says. Karen Sasine, who teaches at the arts center, does work with mosaics, but she uses porcelain tiles instead of stained glass. Given the limited number of artists out there, Tillman says she believes the medium is especially hers to use. “I feel like I have found what I am good at,” Tillman says, “and I enjoy it. I feel like this is what I am meant to do.”
