Maverick D. Lollis, the last remaining suspect wanted in connection with what is believed to be the single-largest methamphetamine seizure in the history of Taylor County last Thursday, spent his birthday in the Taylor County Jail on Tuesday. Lollis, who turned 24 on Tuesday, Aug. 24, was booked on charges of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, as well as active warrant charges of aggravated battery (domestic), false imprisonment and possession of a rearm by Despite having eight previous felony convictions, Garrett Arrowood said his rst experience at a trial was his own murder trial in 2016. He freely admitted it was his decision not to testify at the trial, but said his decision was made solely on the advice of my lawyer. New attorneys representing his case attacked that advice during a two-day evidentiary hearing held last week. The rst day of testimony focused primarily on his team establishing evidence that Arrowood was in Jacksonville on the day in 2015 they contend his aunt, Shelly Strickland, was murdered -a crime for which Arrowood is now serving a life sentence. Testimony also focused on their argument that Arrowoods former courtappointed attorney, Baya Harrison, never pursued the Jacksonville alibi. The lack of evidence regarding the Jacksonville trip weighed heavily in Arrowoods decision not to testify when he was put on trial in 2016 for his aunts murder, he testied late last Thursday. Arrowood taking the stand was a surprise call from his defense team, which had not previously listed him as a witness. My intent is to focus solely on the subject, the decision on whether or not he was going to testify at his last trial. If I open other doors, I dont intend to, but do so at my own peril, Arrowoods attorney David Collins told Circuit Judge David Fina in calling his client to the stand. Was your decision (not to testify) based on the advice of Mr. Harrison? Collins asked. Absolutely. Mr. Harrison told me that since there was no evidence he could obtain of me being in Jacksonville Index Editorial . ................. A-4 Living . .....................

Washington, on trial for the murder of a fellow inmate at Taylor Correctional Institution (TCI), was laid back and appeared relaxed during jury selection proceedings Monday. Opening statements were set to begin this morning (Wednesday) in the three-day trial. Washington was An investigation that spanned nearly two years ended with the arrest of a 69-year-old Perry man charged with lewd molestation of child under the age of 12. Morris Paxton Bratcher, who lives on U.S. Highway 19 North, was taken into custody Aug. 14, one day after Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Special Agent Robbie Hooker received a lab report that matched Bratchers DNA to DNA found inside the four-year-old victims underwear. The investigation began in June 2016 when Hooker (at that time employed as an investigator with the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce) was contacted by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) about a complaint regarding the sexual abuse of a preschooler. The victims mother stated in interviews that the child had gone shing (froggigging) with the suspect and, when they returned, told her Bratcher climbed into the van with (the victim) and forced (the victims) shorts and underwear down (and touched the victims private area).

GLAD TIDINGS By MARSHALL COMBS Psalm. 27:4 reads, One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple. From all indications, this was written by King David, who was in a position that would allow him to have pretty much anything that he desired. Yet, of all and anything, his desire as a king was this one thing. And this one thing was eternal, not temporary. Selah. My daily prayer is, Lord, take my eyes off of the temporary things of this life and stir up my curiosity and love for You, Your beauty and Your eternal value. May I position myself to seek you with my whole heart, with strong, passionate affection. Amen. Im reminded of an old hymn that you may recognize, it goes, Keep your hopes on things eternal, hold to Gods unchanging hand. Marshall Combs is the worship leader at Evangel Christian Center. His mission and calling reach region-wide, here in Taylor County and throughout North Florida and the southeast. He is currently organizing a Worshipfest program planned Sunday, Oct. 21, at Rosehead Park, from 2-10 p.m.Our hope is eternal In the Bible, glad tidings is frequently translated to mean to tell good news and to preach the gospel. This space -made available to all local pastors -is dedicated to messages of good news to ll readers with uplifting thoughts to carry with them throughout the week. FCA meeting of the new school year. Jim Brannan with Character Education Now was also a featured speaker. More than 400 students -72 percent of the study body -attended the Wednesday, Aug. 22, meeting of the Taylor County Middle School Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The local Christian Motorcyclist Association chapter (CMA) presented the program, with member John Fish sharing that CMA is a worldwide evangelistic organization with the common goal of changing the world one heart at a time. Jim Brannan, with Character Education Now, shared a message of evangelism and how important it is to spread the gospel. He gave students a set of ribbons to use as a tool for sharing the gospel. The ribbons were made up of four different colors, with Brannen explaining, The color black represents the sin in our lives; red represents the blood of Jesus shed on the cross for sins; white represents the cleansing power of the blood to wash us white as snow; and purple, the color of royalty, represents the adoption into the family of God. Brannan added, When a person accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior, they become a child of God. He then challenged the students to give their ribbons away to spread the Gospel.72% of student body attend middle school FCA meeting Obituaries Bruce Henry BoltonBruce Henry Bolton, 64, passed through this life on his journey home on Aug. 22, 2018.
