Joan Anthony (Freeman)
|As Alma and Mickey (now Rose) mellowed
over the years, this other third of the "Anthony
Sisters" just became feisty.
After leaving Nova in 1974, I followed a boyfriend
to Columbia, SC and landed at the University
of South Carolina majoring in journalism. Boredom
took over and without getting a degree, I took
a job in 1981 working for a group of ophthalmologists.
Through a much protested blind date, I met
my future husband. One day during my lunch hour
in 1983 I married Woody Freeman. Woody held
a music theory degree and worked for the South
Carolina Educational Network.
I continued to work my way through the ranks
at the Columbia Eye Clinic. I rose to supervisor
and eventually became a doctor's personal assistant.
Due to extreme pressure and long hours, I began
suffering grand mal seizures. As a young girl,
I suffered seizures but they lay dormant for
years. Advice from Woody to retire under disability
fell on deaf ears. I loved my job too much.
Finally, after having several embarrassing grand
mal seizures at work within just a few months,
I took retirement two years ago. My only regret
is that I didn't do it sooner.
A few years earlier, Woody left his job to
pursue his music. A home recording studio brings
in much freelance work. For the past ten years
he has been the keyboardist in a part time Beach/Top
40 band traveling the southeast.
For health reasons, I began running upon retirement.
I began competing this year and discovered I'm
addicted to the sport.
My other love is correcting grammatical errors
in the media. That comes from having an English-teacher
mother. It has continuously irked me that SC
ranks 49th in the country in education. Because
Columbia's only newspaper professes to be a
teaching tool to our state schools, I have written
several letters to the editor expressing my
displeasure with its grammatical errors. And
surprisingly, my snotty letters have always
I have countless chances to travel, but I enjoy
my home life. I answer to no one to which Alma
and Rose can attest. Today I am a little less
shy, a little less gullible, and extremely happy.

|After riding out of Nova's 1974
Graduation ceremony on the back of Henry Madsen,
I knew I wasn't prepared for college. My mother,
the wonderful English teacher, Alma Anthony convinced
me to take photography classes with her at BCC.
I took photography and botany. I instantly fell
in love with photography, and I've loved botany
ever since Jim Azar's mother fed me grape leaves
and herbs that were growing next to the entrance
of her home.
In the nine years following graduation, I practiced
all of the skills I acquired through my duties
in Contemporary and Performing Arts, specifically:
box office sales and phone solicitation; costume
design and construction; trash surfing for sets
and props; program advertisement sales; dance
and movement; set design and construction; presentation
and promotion; and rhythm and timing, because
Auntie Mame said, "timing is everything."
The one skill I never acquired or later practiced
was singing. The lovely, talented Paige O'Hara
said my salty voice could be heard over the
entire "Henry Street" chorus. 'Nuff
My son, Ramsey Paul Dulin was born in the summer
of 1983. His life has enhanced my life in ways
that I can't explain.
I married a Yankee, Steven Curtis Hawley in
1985. His business, Steve's Motorsport, founded
in 1982, is located in downtown Charlotte, one
block away from and in-between Charlotte's football
stadium and practice fields. It also sits directly
in the path of Charlotte's proposed baseball
Steve is the best foreign car mechanic in the
Charlotte, North Carolina area. He has built
and raced amateur Sports Car Club of America
race cars since the mid '70s. Steve put me on
the track in one of his race cars immediately
after following me across town. He said, "If
you're going to drive like that, do it on the
I won the big championship race my first year,1987.
My average is just under one win in three races,
or something like 21 wins in 67 races. I road
race SCCA's Improved Touring Class C at: Charlotte
Motor Speedway, North Carolina Speedway, Atlanta
Motor Speedway, Road Atlanta, Roebling Road,
Daytona Motor Speedway, Sebring International
Raceway, and Moroso Motorsport Park. The best
years of my adult life have been spent embarrassing

Take that Allen Hill, for saying, "No,
Mickey, set construction is for the boys. Aren't
you happy in costumes? How about props?"
I must thank Rick Gould for telling Allen that
it would be OK because I would surely blend-in
with the guys at the PA warehouse. And a big
thank you to my mother, who believed me when
I said I could replace a roof, a toilet, and
a foundation, by myself, without the assistance
Alma recently relocated to Northern Florida,
and we're not far behind her. We want to be
near Alma, and we can't wait to race those Florida
||I spent three years in Army Intelligence
(I know, spare me the oxymoron jokes) as an interrogator
which led me back to South Florida by 1980.
I wrote poetry and plays, one of which was
produced at Miami's first Festival of the Arts
in 1982. I earned a B.A. in English Literature
from Florida Atlantic University. After graduation,
I won a scholarship to do some grad work in
Eng. Lit. at Exeter College at Oxford, England,
and returned home for the birth of my second
daughter. I married Cindy in 1983; her daughter
Karon is 20 and our daughter Brittany is 12.
We moved to Salisbury, Maryland in 1988 to
start a trucking business with Cindy's brothers
and I sold my stock in the company in 1990.
I became Vice President of Sales for Milliken
& Michaels, Inc., the largest commercial
collection agency in the world. I retired from
M & M in March of 1998 to resume my writing
I contracted bladder cancer in 1997 (and beat
it!) only to discover a second primary cancer
in July of 1998 in my right lung. My friends
know me as a fighter, and I intend to beat this
nuisance too. I have one chapbook of Poetry
"Arrival: One or Only?" LaPress Publications:
Hollywood, Florida 1983, and individual poems
published in small anthologies and reviews.
After I recover from cancer surgery in mid-September,
1998, I plan to go back to writing, living and
loving with a new vengence.
I do hope that Roger Davies can find a better
recent photo of me - pursing my lips about to
say "Roger, wait a second" is not
how I wish others to know my adult countenence
(Roger, I am laughing quite hard right now).
