Sheriff's Log and Arrest Reports.....................2 New SR 71 speed limit, News from the Pews...4 Community Calendar...........5 Birthdays...........7 J OURNAL Bristol, FL THE CALHOUNLIBERTY } 50 includes tax W ednesday APRIL 23, 2014 Vol. 34 No. 17 The Liberty County School Board is pleased to announce a ground breaking ceremony on Thursday, May 1, at the south cession facility. The current concession facility was built about 40 years ago and is no longer adequate for the needs of the district. During home football games the lines to the restrooms and the concession stand are extremely long and the plumbing in the restrooms is in need of constant repair. Having a facility that the district could be proud of was very important to former school board member Tommy Duggar. He supported this project for almost as many years as he was on the school board because he believed that the district needed a better athletic facility for the students and fans. by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A playground accident cost him the vision in his right eye when he was just six years old. Just before his 12th birthday, the optic nerve in his left eye detached and left him blind. His traditional education ended with his fourth grade year at Hosford School. A couple of years later, he was able to get a spot as a student at the Florida School for the Blind in St. Augustine. Not only did he do well, he excelled, skipping a couple of grades while performing with the schools traveling orchestra. Despite the overwhelming odds against him, Junior Lolley landed the job of his dreams and made himself an indispensable member of This is how he did it. GOING BLIND He was on the playground with his friends at Hosford School in 1959 when it happened. We were just playing in the school yard when I got hit with an oak limb, he said. It broke the optic nerve in my right eye. Despite six or seven surgeries, doctors were unable to restore his vision in that eye. Then, nearly six years later, something even worse happened. He lost the sight in his other eye. It was just before my 12th birthday, Junior explained. He was in the front yard of his parents home in Telogia. I bent over to pick up some trash on the ground and the retina detached in my right eye, leaving me totally blind. Soon afterwards, he had surgery in Gainesville and his sight in that eye was restored for a brief time. I had two weeks of vision and then it detached again, he said. Since then, Ive been totally absolutely dark blind. He said his last visual memories are of the front yard and the green of the pine trees and the grass. I remember the railroad crossing on Burlington Road, the old trestle bridge between Hosford and Telogia and Max Clarks old gas station at Hwy. 65 and SR 20. He said that as a child, I used to pay a lot of attention to roads. would come as usable information. But he acquired most of his knowledge of Liberty Countys roads and landmarks after he went blind. He often asked family and friends to describe where new roads were and how the landscape was changing. I would hold one memory (from his sighted days) but then kind of slide a new one next to it, he said, explaining how he continually created his own updated map in his head. Although unable to attend school at home, he sought out his own education in an unusual way: listening to television.

The April 12 accident happened around noon in front of a Hickory Street residence in Pine Island. The 1993 Ford F150 pickup was going north when it went off the west shoulder of the road, collided with the culvert and struck the cinderblock wall. Damages were estimated at approximately $2,500 for the culvert and $300 for the wall. The vehicle is registered to Cecilia Lee of Sopchoppy. with nearly $3,000 in property damage


APRIL 23, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 I was enthused about game shows, he said. Jeopardy was his favorite. He also had family members, mostly younger cousins, read to him. His parents, Nima Lou Ellis Lolley and Houston L. Lolley, have since passed on. His baby sister, Donna Kroft, lives in Neal Subdivision in Bristol. Another sister, Jeanette Embry, resides in Telogia. His brother, James, is two years younger and also works with the sheriffs SCHOOL IN ST. AUGUSTINE He wanted to go to school and when he learned about the Florida School for the Blind in St. Augustine, he applied. were full, he said. told me to come in for testing. He tested so well that they decided to push him ahead a couple of grades, even though his schooling had been sporadic due to his numerous surgeries. year. After completing that school term, the principal caught up with him in the hallway and pulled him aside. How would you like to skip eighth grade and go to the ninth? he was asked. All I can do is try, Junior replied. credits and the equivalency of one year in college. But his time at St. Augustine wasnt all about academics. He played guitar with the school orchestra and traveled as they gave concerts around central Florida. Once he completed his studies, he decided to live in Lab. Getting to work was harder than doing the job. He didnt have the money to take a cab so, armed with a cane to keep him steady, he walked to the store for his It might seemed odd for a blind man to work in a photo lab but it was the perfect job for him at that time. It was simple. Id go through two doors into a darkroom. it on a clip on the rack, put a weight on it and add an ID sticker. Then he slid it into a processing unit that took multiple racks. It would go through the stages and come out the other end processed, he said. I would literally put thousands of those things through in a night, he said. I got pretty fast at it and sometimes I would get ahead of the machine. After a year, he decided it was time to come home. COMING HOME There werent a lot of job opportunities here for a blind unless you drove to Tallahassee. A while later, CB radios were becoming popular. Junior chose the handle Windmill and started talking. Hunters, truckers and old friends would tell him about phone to call for help. I would monitor some of the CB channels back in said. If there was a problem, I would call the sheriffs One day, he heard there was a job opening for a dispatcher. When he applied for the job, Liberty County Sheriff Harrell Wood Revell didnt mince words. What the hell am I going to do with a blind dispatcher? he asked Junior. It took some convincing, but after Junior contacted the Agency for Blind Services out of Tallahassee, they made an offer to the sheriff. They would pay for training and special equipment as well as Juniors salary for the The sheriff agreed to give him a try. to operate the teletype and handle the phones in those the point they were hanging around to see how I did this down for him. Other than that, they would leave me alone. A year later, he was evaluated by the Blind Services agency. When they asked if the sheriff wanted to keep him on, Revell made it clear that he was staying. I found out I cant do without you, he told Junior. He kept his job. After starting as a dispatcher with no guarantee of continued employment, he stayed with just a few weeks ago. GUIDING DEPUTIES Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch was a deputy when been impressed with Juniors abilities. When I worked the road, hed give detailed directions, Finch said, explaining that he would point even seen when sending a deputy on a call. I wondered how in the world he did it, the sheriff said, adding, I dont think he knows hes blind. Junior peppered the deputies for details as they drove through the county, and often went on ride alongs to get his bearings. I used reference roads to know where the new ones were, he explained. His mental map is made up of a lot of blocks and he got accustomed to adding a new block every now and then. suddenly there were a lot of new roads he had to learn as each one was named and mapped. If we had a little down time, Id ask the dispatcher on with me to go over the map to see if theres any roads I didnt know, he said. and look for something new. He picked up a lot of information simply by doing along the way. When he sent them to an address, they would often note if there was a new fence going up or perhaps a large tree that had been removed. He added and removed blocks as needed to his mental grid. HANDLING CALLS Directing a deputy down a long stretch of road youve never seen was minor compared to handling the range Some were silly, others frightening, and a few were tragic. One of the scariest was when a man called me and said he was having chest pains. He told me, Its like an elephant sitting on my chest. Theyre getting worse. After dispatching an ambulance, Junior stayed on the phone and told him, Buddy, today is not the day. Youre not going to die on my shift! As he remained on the line, the man said he was about to pass out. on Junior, thinking he was calling for help. He wasnt. He was trying to keep the man on the other end of the phone conscious. You better come back to me, he yelled. When he got no response, he relayed to the ambulance crew that the man had passed out. The man came to, spoke again, and then passed out once more. Junior kept yelling. passing out once more. At that moment, I heard the paramedics come in. Once of them picked up the phone and said We got him. He lived. Two weeks later, the man called Junior and told him, I dont think Id have ever made it without you pushing me. Its my job, Junior replied. No, its not, the man said, crediting him with going above and beyond by willing him to hang on as he waited for the ambulance. But many calls did not end that well. Its hard to pick out the worst, Junior said. Even today, there are a lot of voices I remember that wont ever go away. He said many times, his has been the last voice someone hears. He takes some consolation in the fact that he talks to many soon to be moms just moments before they give birth. Somedays, he said, Its like one left the world and one came in the world. More than once hes warned paramedics to hurry after Thats when he tells EMS to get a move on because, get there quick! Most of the emergency calls were from people he knew. Some were personal friends; others he said he knew because they came to visit us in jail, referring to previous inmates. Its a special challenge when a loved one is seriously ill. Ive had to dispatch EMS to my mother and my grandmother before, he said. Aunts, uncles and cousins have also been on the other end of a call for help. Youve got to get the information out as clearly and quickly as you can. Youve got to get the right medical information so the ambulance crew can pull out the right equipment when they arrive on scene, he said, Youve got to stay calm. And, as important as it is to do the job right, its critical to know how to handle the stress. You can kick the wall will kill you, he said. The average burnout rate for a How did he do it? After a bad day, he would go home, sit at the computer, put on his headset and blast an external hard drive. After a few minutes with Jim Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Creedence Clearwater Revival, he said, Its gone. One tune that always makes him feel better is I Heard It Through The Grapevine. He said, Ill hit that song, crank up the of the day is gone. There are a few 911 calls he can laugh about, though, including one from a man who sounded just a little too intoxicated to go pick up his own lunch. It was in the very early days of the 911 system and perhaps everyone phone line. This one fella called and asked if I had a deputy close by, Junior said. I asked what he needed. The caller replied, Can your deputy go down to the Hogly Wogly Coke? Ill pay him. That aint gonna happen, Junior replied. Thank you and have a good day. Another time, a woman called 911 because she was worried about her dog. She asked Junior, Does a Chihuahua have fur balls like a cat? He advised her to call a veterinarian and pointed out, Thats not a 911 problem. There have been a few heartwarming calls over the years from children seeking help for a sick parent. Those calls can be challenging for a dispatcher who has to cautiously elicit information from the child without upsetting them even more. Most of the time, the 911 address will pop up on the moved and failed to update their address. Then I have to ask the child where they live and they cant tell me. He goes through a series of basic questions trying to determine where they are, asking the child what they can see from their front door and the color of their house. Sometimes afterward such a crisis, he would get a call back from a youngster who would tell him, Thank you for helping my mama. RETIREMENT Junior and his wife, Linda, are looking forward to his retirement. He said he wont miss having to listen years. I can just walk outside anytime now, just me and my German Shepherd, he said. His longevity in the job is remarkable given the rapid shifts politics can take in small community. He has enjoyed a unique position, having worked under several How did he stay above the fray? By minding my own business, he said bluntly. While he and his wife are looking forward to plenty Hell still be looking out for the folks of Liberty County by monitoring his ham radio. He talks to many Florida ham operators as well as radio buffs around the world every day, and is proud that if all other communications fail in a disaster, ham operators like himself can provide a backup emergency communications system. Even in retirement, this blind man is still looking out for Liberty County. JUNIOR LOLLEY continued from the front page Junior Lolley is shown here while a student at the Florida School for the Blind. Although unable to see, he was encouraged to wear glasses to protect his eyes from damage and infection. Junior Lolley is shown in the photo at left of the school orchestra. He is pictured at right, second from right in the front row, just after moving to St. Augustine for school.

APRIL 23, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 Donnie & Annette Phillips mark 41 years together There will be a Retirement Reception held in honor of Billy W. Grantham at the Sneads Log Cabin on Old Spanish Trail in Sneads. The reception will be on Sunday, April 27 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (CT). There will be cake and coffee. Billy started out his career as a deputy at the Blount stown Police Department where he went on to the transferred to Sneads Police Department as the Police Chief. He then went on to corrections in Chattahoochee. After his service there he landed in Sunnyland where He is the son of Harvey and Maebelle Grantham of Blountstown. Retirement reception for Billy Grantham April 27 However budget constraints have not allowed for the district to pursue building a new facility. About a year ago Rex Lumber Company reached out to the district offering to donate money for a building project. The district decided to develop a to the fact that the existing facility no longer meets the needs of the district. In 2013 a committee was assembled consisting of members from the school system, county commis sion, community leaders and area business partners to collaboratively plan in order to make the most of the donation. Committee members include: Tony Anderson, Dwayne Branch, Jayson Cain, Steve Cut shaw, Aaron Day, Tommy Duggar, Grant Grantham, Logan Kever, Alex Mercer, Ed Mercer, Kathy Nobles, Donnie Read, Jennifer Sewell, Doug Shuler, DOC Warden Carey Sorey, Sgt. Shane Tharpe, and Kevin Williams. The committee asked Shuler Architecture + Associates to draw up plans for the proposed facility to present to Rex Lumber Company. The plans drawn by Shuler Architecture + Associ ates include: an athletic locker room with restrooms, conference room; an athletic training room; equip ment storage room; referee dressing room with restrooms on both the home and visitor ends of the structure. The building will be constructed so that the the south end zone. Future plans include the place ment of a bulldog statue outside the locker room for the players to touch for good luck as they run out The estimated cost for a facility built to the speci $850,000. After reviewing the plans for the new facility on Aug. 14, 2013, Rex Lumber Company generously donated $50,000 towards this project. Additionally the Department of Corrections (DOC) agreed to provide inmate labor for the project. The donation from Rex Lumber Company, donated inmate labor, and other materials and services donated for the project should bring the cost to build the facility down to $250,000. The district will only continue this project as donations allow. Superintendent Tony Anderson stated, We have no money in the budget to fund this project. We have to rely on the generosity of our business partners, community, fans, alumni, and former athletes to support building this facility. I think it is very exciting to have a state-of-the-art athletic facility that our community can be proud of. However it must be independent of our current budget. There are numerous opportunities for businesses, fans, and alumni to get involved in raising money. We absolutely want this to be a community effort. There are legacy contribution levels from $500 to $50,000 that provide opportunities to honor or rec ognize individuals or businesses. A contributor at the legacy level will have their name permanently house in varying styles depending on the amount of the legacy contribution, stated Donnie Read, Legacy Campaign Fundraising Director. While legacy giving is very important to this effort, probably the most exciting aspect of the Legacy Campaign is the Legacy Walk. The Legacy the stadium. It will be constructed using engraved decorative brick pavers of various sizes that can be purchased by supporters. A classic design has been selected for the pavers. The pavers for former athletes will include the name of the sport played and the year(s) played. The pavers for alumni will show the year of graduation from LCHS. The pav ers for community supporters may have the name of the contributor, in honor of someone, in memory of someone, or an inspiring message. The paver options are: gold brick $250; garnet brick $150; or gray brick $100. The Legacy Campaign subcommittee is currently lahassee to develop the materials for the Legacy Campaign with a tentative start date in early May. Based on receiving the necessary donations for this sion facility should be completed by the beginning of the school year in August 2015.

Vance McAl lister, R-La., is known to tabloid readers everywhere as the Kissing Congressman, after some one, apparently a staff member, leaked a surveillance video of the married McAllis 23 amorously kissing a woman congressio nal employee who is also married. The Republican governor of Louisiana, on that reputation by calling for McAllis ters resignation from the House because he is an embarrassment. You may remember that Louisiana is represented in the Senate hurting wife next to him, publicly confessed his very serious sin, telling the world he had asked for forgiveness from God and my wife, after his phone number turned up several times in the phone records of the Madame running a Washington prostitution ring. Obviously more embarrassed by a 30-second video replay of one illicit kiss than by repeated illegal connections with astically endorse Vitter. This reminds me of the Senates four-year refusal to seat Republican Reed Smoot, a Mormon leader, who was elected in 1902. In spite of the fact the Mormon church had re nounced all future plural marriages in 1890, Protestant groups were adamantly opposing a Mormon in the Senate, even though Smoot was happily married to just one wife. Smoot would rather have seated beside me in this chamber a polygamist who doesnt polyg than a monogamist who doesnt monog. Personal political scandals almost always follow the same script.

The problem was not just that the married Profumo had been sleeping for two years with Keeler, but that Keeler, at the height of the Cold War, was simultane ously sleeping with the Soviet naval attache in London. The scandal ended Profumos then-promising career and helped to bring down Harold Macmillans Conservative government. The next 40 years were one long act of personal contrition. The well-born Profumo worked with and for the poor. For four de cades at Toynbee Hall, a refuge for the disad vantaged in East London, he was out of pub lic sight. He washed dishes. He cleaned and scrubbed toilets. He helped feed the hungry. He visited prisoners in jail. He raised money to train youth. He used his remaining con nections in Parliament to win greater sup port for housing and schools.

BY ANNETTE PHILLIPS Annette Phillips and her husband, Donnie, of Telogia, are the parents of Liberty County Commissioner Scott Phillips. She shares their story of his remarkable recovering fol lowing the accident that left him with serious head injury last year. Scott, his wife Angel and their children are shown at right. L ife is precious, especially when a Mom faces the uncertainty of her childs life. On April 18, 2013, I was in Jacksonville driv cell phone rang, but because I was driving I de cided to ignore it. A little while later, I noticed I had a voicemail and the call showed it was from my husband, Donnie. I checked it. I could tell that his voice sounded nervous and he said, Scott and Nathan (his son) have been in a 4 wheeler acci dent, I dont think it is bad but I havent gotten to them yet. He called me back quickly, and said he talked to slight concussion and need a few stitches. A little bit later, I talked to Ryan and he assured me Nathan was from a family member that informed me they heard on the scanner Scott was being transported by heli breathing from that point on and I have no memory at this point, I had no real understanding of what his apart. I remember sitting in the surgical waiting room and remember thinking this is not happening, this is the kind of accident you hear about other moms and fam ilies facing. I started talking to God and remember ing when my kids were born how I thanked Him for the point I was con sumed with worry. It was very early on in their lives, God assured me He would protect them and I need not to be consumed with worry. I needed while on earth... son opened the door, he started talking and it seemed like he was saying a lot, but I could not (possibly would not) understand anything he was saying. When he stopped talking, I asked him to tell me in a He looked me in the eyes and said, Your son may not make it through the night. His ICP (the pressure around his brain) is at 80 and it needs to be at least 25. I didnt hear anything from anyone from that point on...but was told everybody in the waiting room started praying at one time. A short time later, we left the surgical waiting room to walk up to the ICU waiting room and immediately how but Scotts pressure has dropped to 25! God was there all the time. Scott was in an induced coma for 12 days. We were told he would hit another critical and he did! His fever spiked incredibly high, his vital signs were outrageous, and we were facing uncertainty once again. was stabilized, and God began to heal his body slowly but surely. Once they started bringing Scott out of the in duced coma, we were not given a lot of hope of the outcome. Hope, how ever, was all around us! One morn ing, I remember walking in the ICU unit after they had started to wake him and began to stimulate him; he rolled his head over with a small smile and said Hey Mama. I think I could have walked on wa words that every Mother loves to hear from her children. We serve an awesome God! Most everyone knows what Scott and our family have gone through this past year. We had a very grim prognosis, preparing us that he may not be able to communicate, walk, personality changes, etc. God two weeks after the accident; he was transported to be there 4-6 months. He was there two weeks! God was there all the time. He came home the day his daughter, Allie Hope would be having her Kindergarten Graduation and was able to attend. Scott started back serving on the life...his family, going to church and hunting. He was able to go on the annual hunting trip to Illinois with the guys Dad, Ryan, Ricky Faircloth and close friends from Ft. Walton in November -and has been work ing his bee yards since coming home.

Operation Outdoor Freedom, a program launched by Commis sioner Putnam in 2011 and led by the department's Florida Forest Service, recently celebrated its third successful season of hunt ing events. Since its creation, Operation Outdoor Freedom has proudly provided more than 392 wound ed veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces recreational opportuni ties on designated state forest and agricultural lands. Through Operation Outdoor Freedom, designated areas are equipped to accommodate the special needs of wounded veterans, providing an opportunity for recreation and rehabilitation that is not available through any other state program. Recreational activi ties range from guided hunting During the recent hunting season, deer hunts, turkey hunts, and hog hunts took place around the state. The Florida Forest Service has hosted 57 Operation Outdoor Freedom events on 15 state forests, private ranches, timberlands, and coastlines since 2011. Many times, these portunity for veterans to get outdoors since returning home from duty or recovering from injury. Operation Outdoor Freedom is currently planning future events for wounded veterans, mer and guided hunts for the next year's hunting season.

ABOVE: Jason Hewitt displays his big catch during the weekend. RIGHT: Jeremy Cabiness shows off his turkey with guide/FFS employee Thomas Reese. Lake Talquin State Forest hosts Operation Outdoor Freedom The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), at its recent meeting at the Florida Public Safety Institute near Tal lahassee, passed changes that divide the states Hunting Zone D (from Pensacola to Tallahassee) into two deer management units (DMUs), each with a unique set of antler-point requirements and antlerless deer harvest days. These changes take effect during the 2014-15 hunting season and are part of a larger, statewide project aimed at managing deer on a more local level and providing stakeholders with a greater say in deer management. The FWC conducted a public outreach and input process in northwest Florida beginning in early 2013. Since then, the Com mission has received substantial input and comments from hunters, farmers and the general public regarding how they would like to see deer managed in the newly proposed DMUs. As a result of this outreach process, the FWC passed rules for both public and private lands in both of the DMUs in Zone D, with Interstate 10 being the dividing line between the two DMUs. South of I-10 will be called DMU-D1, and north of I-10 is DMU-D2. Now bucks harvested south of I-10 in DMU-D1 must have ant lers with at least 2 points (each point having to be at least 1 inch long) on one side and at least one antler 5 inches or more in length. North of I-10 in DMU-D2, the minimum antler requirement is now 3 points (each point having to be at least 1 inch long) on one side and have at least one antler 5 inches or more in length, or have an antler with a main beam length of 10 inches or more. The rule includes an exception for youth to the increased antler requirements in both DMUs whereby hunters 15 years old and younger may continue to harvest bucks that have at least one antler 5 inches or more in length. The Commissions action also changes the antlerless deer season (doe days) on private lands within Zone D. During antlerless deer season, does may be harvested as well as bucks with less than 5-inch antlers. But it is illegal to take spotted fawns. In DMU-D1 (south of I-10), the antlerless season was reduced to four days consisting of two popular holiday weekends (the weekends after Thanksgiving and Christmas). In DMU-D2 (north of I-10), antlerless deer season was length ened to eight days distributed across four weekends (Saturdayseason, third weekend of general gun season and the weekend after Christmas).

APRIL 23, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 17 SCOTT PHILLIPS RECOVERY continued from page 9 We have always been a close family, but through all the trials we have faced, we share an even stronger faith in our God; a resolve to live life enjoying Gods greatest, most trea sured blessings...each other; and share our love and faith in a living and faithful God to others! I want all moms, dads, siblings, and friends to know that the greatest gift of life is love... Godly love! Loving your children/grandchil dren more than life itself is the greatest gift you can have. Showing your children and grandchildren God is our example of real love, pure love, and faithful, true love. It is our responsibility to make sure they know God that they love Him, that they serve Him, and that they love and serve others. This is the greatest commission... I am proud to say that Scott is and has been a Godly man. Through his experience many lives have been touched on just how powerful God is. He has been to several churches shar ing his testimony and lives to tell of Gods great and mighty power. He has special plans for my son, and I am so grateful for Scotts obedience. I am also so thankful God provided Scott with a very sweet and virtuous woman. She gest supporter and most of all, a very strong help-mate to help him as he has been going through this past year of recovery. She has never complained, only giving more and more, when she had very little left to give. She ing love. She has the perfect name...Angel... which indeed she is! His sisters, Tammy and April, will be the could get so aggravated with him. This hasnt changed; they still have a very real brotherlysisterly love! But the relationship is real, and it is solid. They continue to be very support ive of their brother in every way. He is known as Precious, and they treat him so. Ryan, Scotts brother-in-law, has been our familys rock solid foundation this past year. We are so blessed that God brought him into our family. I know God equipped Ryan to handle all the uncertainty and trials we faced this past year. We have watched Ryan become a man after Gods own heart as he grew in faithfulness and Godliness during the leader ship of our family. He has not only been there for April, but for Scott, and our entire family. I recall many times that Scott would get down and wouldnt talk; but when Ryan showed up, he and Scott would talk for hours. Last but not least, theres daddy.. I think he has been the receiving end of all the frustra tion and harsh comments. They always say you lash out at the one you love the most. Ive had to remind Donnie a few times, you told God if He would just spare Scotts life, you would tote and carry him anywhere he wanted to go. Now, Scott, or for that matter, any of the kids, can call daddy needing help, and he is there in a heartbeat. Family and friends, and members of this great community...thank you from the bot tom of our hearts for all your prayers, love and support!! April 18, 2014 marked one year ago when we were in the mercy and the hands of an Al mighty God. I cant imagine a more wonder ful place to be! To God be the Glory for where Scott is today.
