Daily Home – The Childersburg Termits

By Katherine Poythress

06-21-2009

They named themselves the Childersburg Termites because they go through a lot of wood quickly, most of it ending up in piles of shavings and scraps.

But what these senior citizen woodworkers labor to create is in high demand among friends, family and community members, too.

The Termites began in 1989 at Central Alabama Community College as an offshoot of a cabinetry class, said member Garland Justice. The class was discontinued in 2000, and five years later the college closed the wood shop as well, citing a need for the building.

It was nearly a year before the Termites were up and running again, thanks to the Talladega County Board of Education, which acquired the tools in the wood shop and proceeded to lease them to the city of Childersburg for $1 a year. The city in turn allows the Termites to use the tools, and subsidizes the building and utilities costs for the group.

Now the Termites meet in the old Childersburg High School band room, where air conditioning is no more than a daydream. A giant box fan blows across the room dusted nearly monochromatic with the by product of wood run through saws and then battered into submission with chisels, drills, hammers, nail guns and planes.

Tom Ingram is nearly finished constructing a toy box almost large enough to serve as a playhouse. It’s for his grandbabies, he said.

“I was in an auto accident in 1998, and the doctor told me I had to retire,” Ingram said. “So I decided I needed a hobby.”

His father was a carpenter and helped build the barracks at Fort Benning in Georgia, later working on homes in Anniston.

“I guess I took it from him, but I didn’t learn it from him,” Ingram said.

Garland Justice, one of the original Termites members and a former carpentry instructor at CACC, said he has been working with wood since he was “a little bitty boy.”

FAMILY INFORMATION:

Taken from the Talladega Co. Heritage Book, p. 138-139, written by Linda Justice Simpson, 5407 Golden Pond Ave., Northport, AL 35473.

Isaac Clay Justice was born in Talladega Co., AL 1 April 1874 to Warren Alonzo and Sarah Meadows Justice. In 1894, he married Destie Mona Hayne, daughter of John Nicholas and Martha Hayne. Isaac Clay worked on a farm or at a sawmill until 1900 when he started working for the Central of Georgia Railroad. They lived at Zuber, a railroad crossing about one mile below Bon Air. They had five children, Pernia, Herbert, Grace, Johnny and Aubrey. They moved to Cresswell in 1901 and to Calcis in June 1902, where he worked as a section foreman until 1905 when he took over a new railroad job.

Destie Justice died 30 May 1906, and the five children lived with the Justice grandparents for about a year. In 1907, Isaac Clay married Lillie Fulmer and the following week they rode the train to Bon Air and were met by his parents and his five children. Each child brought a present for “Mama Lillie.”

Isaac resumed his job of section foreman for the railroad in Calcis, and worked at that job until December 1908 when he quit the railroad. He farmed, cut timber and hauled logs and various other jobs until 1919 when he, W.L. Garrett, and C.S. Darling opened a general store in Calcis, which was still in operation when he died in 1934. Isaac Clay and Lillie had three children: Mereiam, Evelyn and Gertrude.

A small community presumably named after the limestone quarried nearby. This stone was used in construction of the Logan Martin Dam. The abandoned Justice store stands at the crossroads. Next door, an old house with gingerbread decoration is being restored.

Photo history: Mr. A. E. Turner Jr. gave a copy of the original photograph to Vera Garrett Justice (wife of Aubrey Justice); then (my) Aunt Vera gave a copy of the picture to Frances Justice Warren. Finally Aunt Frances gave a copy of the photo to my mother, Martha Justice Abernathy; and she printed this copy for me.

Thanks go out to everyone who has passed on this bit of Calcis history!

Anyone have more historical/old photographs of Calcis?

I would love to see them!
