Welcome To The Southerners Website!A nationally known arm of Jacksonville State University, the Marching Southerners have been defining the future of marching band for SIXTY YEARS.
Comprised of students from all over the country, the Southerners perform for thousands each season - sending chills up the spine and tears down the face. In an effort to help raise money for those of you planning to go on the Hawaii trip in December, we have put together a campaign. His musical genius was such that it tended to overshadow his other gifts, but the truth was, Jimmy excelled at just about everything.
I would like to share two musical memories I have of Jimmy: As everyone knew, he was a brilliant organist, pianist and bassoonist.
Responsibility, leadership, teamwork, confidence, and self-awareness are just a few of the building blocks reinforced through an education in the Performing Arts. We believe that Performing Arts is a vital tool in teaching a student how to analyze and evaluate themselves and the world around them while at the same time creating new diminutions in their thinking, learning, and personalities.
High school and Middle school students have the opportunity to be involved in the following areas of study: vocal music, acting, theater technology, dance, guitar, band, piano.
Students studying dance, vocal music, acting and theater tech are all involved in our final production of our spring musical. The Foundation Academy admits any student regardless of sex, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or national and ethnic origin. Each student played a set number of memorized compositions for a judge from the National Guild of Piano Teachers. The cook-off is a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event and will serve as a Florida State Championship contest. Cook's choice is a new category this year; the entry fee is $25 to enter and the winner takes all. One Friday, he asked if he could borrow my flute for the weekend, and I swear, when he brought it back to school Monday morning, he was already a better flutist than me, and I’d been at it for years.
It offers a quiet child scripted structure and technique to work from, while developing new skills and confidence. These include:   a Christmas Concert involving all grades, a Spring Concert involving all grades, a High School play, a Middle School production, an Elementary Musical, and a High School Musical. Scripted subject matter is chosen and developed in relation to the same standards used in the academic classes by use of the essential skills and the school-wide essential question.  Classroom teachers are involved in creating curriculum for performing arts classes, to ensure true integration and project based learning.
Elementary students are involved in vocal music classes and dance classes and have a choice of one or more of the following: piano, guitar, drums, and violin. The Amelia Island Convention & Visitors Bureau is now accepting entries for professional and amateur cooks.
The event will also kick off football season and will include a "Best Decorated" team booth.
I used to ask Jimmy to play certain difficult passages for me so I could hear how it went, he'd knock it off like it was nothing, then I'd echo what he had just played. He learned how to type so fast, so easily, so effortlessly that he made the girl who sat next to him, me, look that much worse!
Performing Arts programs are vital to the growth of the “whole child.” Responsibility, leadership, teamwork, confidence, and self-awareness are just a few of the building blocks reinforced through an education in the Performing Arts. All elementary students are involved in the elementary musicals, in which they get hands on learning in the areas of music, dance & drama. Special recognition goes to Julia Clark and Bonnie Miller, each of whom performed 10 pieces, earning them the highest level of membership. Although we were never close friends, I always held him in high regard and know had he not died in college - he was bound for accomplishing much in music or anything else he set his mind to do. These same traits are incredibly important in college, career, and the progressive world around us.

The cost to participate is $100 per backyard (amateur) team and $250 for each professional team. His was the real talent, his musical ability was fantastic, to say the least, but he also had the drive, determination and desire to practice for hours, study the music and apply his knowledge to perform beautifully when playing. When I learned that Jimmy died, a long time ago, I knew that our class had just suffered a real tragedy.I look forward seeing him again in Heaven. Since starting there in 1979, she's served as DMV supervisor and senior customer service representative.
The day I heard he had been in the accident and died, I was deeply saddened and felt there was an injustice.
Caroline Junior High and I remember he could type as fast and as accurately as he could play the piano.
I'd like to think, he would have gone on to become a leading member in the progressive rock scene, or the Jazz scene, or even broken into the world of classical music. In high school, we were in almost all the same classes, and we got into the habit of doing our homework together every day over the phone.
My grandparents the Walter Sealeys lived just two blocks from downtown in a home on Main St. Between actual homework and gossiping and making each other laugh, we’d tie up the phone line for hours on end. We would sit in the cafeteria and he would compose little tunes for me to pluck out on those tiny rubber bands that were part-and-parcel of the orthodontic experience in the old days. Sealey Bldg.- still standing!) I was raised in Alachua, coming to school in 1942 (3rd grade) and remaining there until 1952 when I graduated. What wonderful memories I will always cherish from my hometown! ?My husband bought our first car when we married in 1957, from Bill Enneis.?Thigpen's Drug Store was on the corner of Main Street. He also sold tickets to ride the train to Wiliford, Bell, Curtis and Wannee to the west of Alachua, and to LaCross, Brooker, Sampson City, and Starke to the east of Alachua.
Waters family, was the agent at the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad (ACL) across the street, both depots were on the south end of town. Highway 441 ran through Alachua on main street; the by-pass and overpass was not built until the forties.


Formerly there had been a big cotton farming operation in the area supporting two cotton gins. One gin was in the middle of town on a spur railroad track of the SAL and one on the south end of town on SAL's mainline. In general ,however, because the "Main stay'* of the economy of the community was farming, the area did not suffer as much as other areas. Little happened during the week; school, church, gardening, cleaning yards and a few social club meetings. There was visiting with friends, getting haircuts and other amenities of life that you hadn't done in weeks or months. Most businesses closed at 5 - 6 O'clock, but grocery stores stayed open until 8-10 O'clock. The Four H Club, sponsored by the school and County Agent, was a big influence in the community. Occasionally a theatrical company would come to town and help the community put on a production of some kind. Among the other things you did for entertainment or diversion was to go to Gainesville to see the movies. There were two theaters in Gainesville; the Florida Theater on University Avenue and the Ritz (Or Lyric) Theater near the post office. One of the cool things about going to tlie movies in Gainesville; they were air conditioned.
Ehjring hot weather you would go to Poe Springs, a few miles west of High Springs for swimming and a picnic or to Blue Springs, which was a little further west. It was located just west of present day I - 75 on the south side of Millhopper Road to Gainesville. The east-west passage was the largest From the west entrance you went east down a gradual slope for 30 to 50 feet. When you got to the bottom and center of the cross, you could see an extension to the north that extended 30 to 40 feet.
Several university students were injured exploring the cave and rumor has it that possibly one or more may have died as a result of dare-devil climbing.
As the participation in WWII grew in scope and activities the depression ended and the good times returned. C. Frankly, it's been only out of respect for my parents that I never legally changed my name.
Okay, with that behind us, let's see what my dad, at the age of 97, now recalls about the old days in Alachua. His station was at the southernmost rail line running by Copeland Sausage Company and Ennis Motor Company. Leland manned the Seaboard station just a few yards from Papa Waters' Coastline station on the south end of town.
David manned another Coastlme station, known as "East Alachua," which was located up by the current location of US 441. The old road tfiat comes in under the railroad overpass and then turns north at Main Street was the original US 441 . Passengers traveling to High Springs would disembark in Alachua and look for other transportation to High Springs. As results were telegraphed in, he would give them to my dad (Beb), who would "run" them to City Hall, where a large board displayed the latest election information.
The center of town in those early days was just north of the Seaboard tracks, on the southern end of Main Street, as I think of it today. Mott's blacksmith shop was just up the street from the barber shop of Willie Cauthen (Hal's dad). One of tfie hotels, The Hawkins House, later named the Skirvin Hotel, was just south of the southernmost railroad tracks. Large bowls and platters of meats, potatoes, vegetables and breads were placed on the tables and the guests would pass them around just like at a large family gathering. I recall one summer when Dad and I were "batching" and he and I ate there quite often. Living in town, we enjoyed the convenience of regular home delivery of the block of ice needed to keep food in the box cool.
The old man who delivered the ice was named Lige, but I don't recall the name of the horse that pulled the wagon. The best-known train that ran through town was named "Peggy." Peggy was a Seaboard train that ran from Staike through Bell to Wannee, where the train would turn around and retrace its route. I recall a story that now escapes Dad's memoiy about what his mom and the other Waters mothers would do from time to time when the kids got under foot.
Since all three moms in the Waters clan had access to the railroad, they could use "Peggy" to occupy the kids for a few hours. Simply put the kids on the train when it arrived from Starke, and they would be out of the way for a few hours while riding down to Wannee and back. I remember at least one occasion when my cousins Larry, Johnny Dampier, Lano (Delano), maybe Clara Nell, and I made that trip. Since all the "big boys" (older cousins) got off during the temporary stop, of course I did too.
As the runt of the lot, I was the last to grab for the hand rail when the train started moving, and I almost had a very long walk back to Alachua.
Other entertainment for Waters boys: Ventures into Warren*s Cave were treacherous in Dad's day. He says they had no flashlights, so they took "fat pine" sticks to light up, once they were deep enough to need a light source. Dad recalls one occasion when the circus was in town and some of the horses got loose just as a train was passing though.
It was an outdoor theater composed of a billboard-type screen and rows of logs for the audience to use for seating. The show was located in a vacant lot on the east side of Main Street, approximately one block south of the main downtown intersection, where the First National Bank was located for many years. Marbles were a lot less expensive than the electronic devices kids have for entertainment today. So was everything else! Bland Horse Races 1944  By Kent Doke:The Bland horse races actually started in Haynesworth in the summer of 1944 when Paul Emery and I raced our horses on the straight graded road North of Hollingsworth. I had borrowed an English saddle to race with and when we jumped off, the right stirrup leather came off the safety catch and was dragging. I couldn't get it off my foot and was afraid the horse would step on it and drag me off I always claimed that was why I lost the race and it was why I rode bareback in all the races to follow.
Somehow Jessie Shaw got involved and we started having horse races in Bland every Wednesday afternoon after school. At that time people not in the service were making more money than they had ever made in their life. No cars were being made during the war so people rode with each other to the nearest entertainment.


What is now County Highway 241 that runs out from Alachua to the Santa Fe River was at that time a seldom graded road. In the late thirties and early forties this new road was being cut using only mules and convict labor.
I still remember the guards with shotguns loaded with buckshot guarding the prisoners as they drove the two mule teams pulling small drag buckets of dirt. Jessie really got into the racing; he would grade one quarter mile of the road using a tractor and a grader he bought.
He cut the fence so cars could be parked on the West side of the road and, at it's peak, we would have about 250 people out to see the races.
I raced my own horse, The Santa Fe River Ranch entered a horse, Jessie raced a horse, Roy Ceilon, J.
Once George Duke brought a race horse and jockey with a jockey saddle in to race against Roy's horse.
We were very lucky to win that race and did so only because the jockey couldn't control the horse at the start. About fifty years after the races had stopped I asked Roy how much he thought was bet on those races and he said probably about twenty five hundred dollars. Also about fifty years later I was introduced to an old lawyer in Gainesville who asked me if I had ever ridden horses in the Bland Races.
Makes me feel good, even now. Aiachua High School Memories  Charles Beverly (Beb) Waters Class of 1930 The Alachua Indians played football on a field that was right next to the school rather than down the hill from the grammar school.
The offense was the Notre Dame Box, The quarterback lined up about four feet behind the center and had a fullback lined up a few feet behind him. The other two halfbacks were lined up on their left (or right), stacked one behind the other to form a square box. The QB would take a direct snap and then hand off to one of the backs or drop back to pass. And yes, we wore leather helmets and had drab brown canvas pants; and the jerseys were whatever you could find and had no numbers.
Alachua didn't have a good punter, so Marion Pearson would try to throw a long Interception rather than try a weak punt. The Big Rival was the High Springs Sandspurs, at least until around 1929 when we had "the Big Fight" playing in High Springs, The referee that night was a prominent High Springs doctor (Whitlock?), maybe even the mayor. Emotions were running high, and an intense argument between players, coaches and the referee ended in a Big Fight when Jessie Shaw knocked the referee out cold and the townspeople charged the field. I prudently ran for the car. As a result of the fight, the teams didn't play each other again for a number of years (20?). School buses couldn't be used for game trips, so townspeople would drive the players, Barney Cato was a rural mail carrier and had a son on the squad.
The school buses back then were Model A trucks with a row of seats down each side and a bench down the middle.
A long one story building was in its' place containing eight classrooms and a big auditorium. One big event of that year was a class play about the Pilgrims Thanksgiving and with the Indians.
One day a student walked behind her, on the way to the restroom, and kicked the chair out from under Miss.
I had to wear glasses beginning in the seventh gi'ade, so did not participate in sports much. Perhaps the biggest event in our High School lives was the Junior and Senior theatrical productions. The Junior class play was usually produced in the fall and the Senior class play in the spring. Wq were excused from classes to climb into a ton and a half truck to go load scrape iron from some garage or farm. Som.eone asked her a question and she answered, "just a minute, I have the answer right here in my drawers".
So, if you could manage to leave the Supply room unlocked, you then had to find a classroom window unlocked. In closing I have always told anyone who asked, my years at A H S was comparable to the Tom Sawyer story. One gin was in the middle of town on a spur railroad track of the SAL and one on the south end of town on SAL's mainline. There was visiting with friends, getting haircuts and other amenities of life that you hadn't done in weeks or months. Frankly, it's been only out of respect for my parents that I never legally changed my name.
