Community is saddened by local resident’s death
The community is sad to have heard of the death of Lozia Dee (Guy) Wall. Most everyone called her Lozia Dee.
Lozia Dee was 91 years old and a very sweet person to everyone. She was born here in Schley County.
She was the daughter of the late John Thomas Guy and Pearl Cromer Guy and the wife of the late Wesley Wall of Schley County.
Lozia Dee and her late husband raised two daughters here in Schley County, Gaynelle (Wall) Williams and her husband Charles of Oglethorpe, and Dycie (Wall) Pope of Cataula, and she has two sisters, Erlene (Guy) Greene and Emily Mildred (Guy) Smith both of Ellaville, and a number of grandchildren and nieces and nephews.
Lozia Dee will be missed in our community and what special memories she has left us all to remember her by. Special thoughts and prayers go out to this family.

Boy Scout Troop spends weekend at Stone Mountain
Boy Scout Troop 24 of Ellaville left Feb.15 for a weekend trip to Stone Mountain.
Seventeen Scouts and seven leaders and two Scouts’ parents drove to Stone Mountain and set up camp.
On Saturday morning after a hearty meal of sausage dogs and fruit, everyone headed to Snow Avalanche, an area of the park that is set up with snow slides where participants can ride down as groups of five in rafts or individually in tubes. After two hours of sliding everyone headed back to camp for lunch.
Saturday afternoon was spent hiking to the top of Stone Mountain. The weather was cold and dry with 30 mile-per-hour winds. Everyone survived with the only injuries being only chapped faces and lips.
Saturday evening the boys made Frito taco salad and then settled in for a cold night.
Sunday morning when everyone begrudgingly crawled out of their warm sleeping bags they got to enjoy 25-degree temperatures with a wind chill of 16 degrees. It made for a pleasant time getting packed up.
After packing the Troop toured the quarry site before coming home.
Douglas Jamieson, Scout Master, said he thanks Greg Moore, assistant Scout Master, for planning and organizing this special weekend.
