Biography*27 Feb 2003 NELSON TO RECOGNIZE AINSWORTH FIREFIGHTERS
FOR HEROIC TOWER RESCUE ATTEMPT
(TO SAVE TIMOTHY CULPEPPER)

Senator Will Submit Congressional Record Statement Thursday, Seek Recognition from US Dept. of Justice

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Nebraska’s Senator Ben Nelson will recognize the bravery and heroism of two Ainsworth volunteer firefighters who risked their own lives to save a telecommunications worker stranded more than eleven hundred feet in the air after a telecommunications tower partially collapsed last April.

Nelson will submit a congressional record statement honoring Bill Carr and Jeff Keezer of the volunteer Ainsworth Fire Department who stepped in to help in the wake of the tragic collapse when other rescue methods were ruled out. Nelson will submit the statement on February 27th, upon returning from serving as an official delegate at the inauguration of South Korea’s new president.

Both volunteer firefighters have experience climbing towers and other structures and that experience proved to be essential when a dangerous rescue was attempted to retrieve the fallen worker stranded more than a thousand feet in the air. The worker, Mr. Timothy Culpepper, tragically did not survive his injuries.

Nelson is acting to recognize the two Ainsworth firefighters after a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on February 14th, conducted by Vice President Dick Cheney, honored the six Lincoln Firefighters who also participated in the daring rescue attempt but omitted Mr. Carr and Mr. Keezer. In addition to offering a congressional record statement praising their actions, Nelson will contact the U.S. Department of Justice, the agency that provides the Medal of Valor awards, to seek some recognition for their role. Also, Nelson’s staff will work with Aisworth officials to nominate these brave firefighters for the next round of Medal of Valor Awards. Nelson’s staff has already delivered the nomination packet to the Ainsworth Fire Department.

“It is important that Mr. Carr and Mr. Keezer are recognized for their brave efforts on that tragic day,” said Senator Nelson. “Their heroism in the face of danger and their willingness to volunteer for the daring rescue attempt is something all Nebraskans can be proud of and they deserve to be recognized as their colleagues have.”

Senator Nelson’s record statement is attached.

RECOGNIZING THE HEROIC EFFORTS OF BILL CARR AND JEFF KEEZER
(IN ATTEMPTING TO SAVE TIMOTHY CULPEPPER)

Mr. BEN NELSON. Mr. President, today it is my great honor to recognize the valiant efforts of two volunteer firefighters from Ainsworth, Nebraska. Mr. Bill Carr and Mr. Jeff Keezer of the Ainsworth Volunteer Firefighter Department were instrumental in the April 22, 2002 rescue attempt of Timothy Culpepper, a digital communications worker who was stranded more than one thousand one hundred feet in the air when a fifteen hundred foot telecommunications tower he was working on partially collapsed near Bassett, Nebraska. When a wire snapped disabling and stranding Mr. Culpepper, several agencies, including the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency, were called upon for the dangerous rescue mission. However, upon arriving at the scene, response teams realized they were ill-equipped to perform the high-altitude rescue. Bill Carr, a carpenter and married father of three, had spent many summers during college painting tall communications towers. Jeff Keezer, a married father of one, works for a steel company that erects hundred-foot grain elevators. Though these experiences could not have adequately prepared them for this dangerous and technically challenging rescue, they quickly volunteered to help. With no regard for their personal safety, Mr. Carr and Mr. Keezer, armed only with estimations of the exact height of the stranded worker, began to make the physically challenging two-hour ascent to rescue the man who was hanging only by a harness. Carrying bundles of rope and heavy rescue equipment, these brave firefighters, along with a handful on colleagues from the Lincoln Fire Department, scaled the tower amid 30-mph winds and with dwindling daylight. Upon reaching Mr. Culpepper it was discovered that tragically he did not survive the impact of tumbling debris. Mr. Carr and two other firefighters managed to scale the total distance to Mr. Culppeper in ninety minutes while Mr. Keezer, with heavy rescue equipment on his back, and two other firefighters scaled to the half-way point to manage the recovery effort and descent that lasted more than three hours. Unfortunately these two brave and selfless first-responders were omitted from an award ceremony in Washington, D.C. on February 14. Though the Department of Justice didn’t recognize their efforts, Mr. Carr and Mr. Keezer can forever hold their heads high knowing their bravery and the fabric of their character has made all Nebraskans, and especially their neighbors in Ainsworth, proud of their actions. Mr. President, heroism comes in many forms and the courage displayed by Mr. Carr and Mr. Keezer with danger present is a shining example. Nebraskans like Mr. Carr and Mr. Keezer are selfless, honorable and just and they are what makes living in Nebraska living “the good life.” I am proud to represent Nebraskans like Mr. Carr and Mr. Keezer who are committed public servants. Volunteer services are an essential part of small-town America. Without the brave and selfless efforts of everyday citizens like Mr. Keezer and Mr. Carr, many rural communities would lack vital protection and security. The city of Ainsworth and the state of Nebraska are fortunate to have courageous citizens like Jeff Keezer and Bill Carr. These men are true heroes.

Death*4 Sep 1976 He died at Hazel Green, Madison Co., Alabama, on 4 Sep 1976 at age 89.1 
Biography* James Milton Jones, my father, was born in northeast Madison County near Hazel Green, Alabama on September 10, 1886. He was the first son of John David Jones and Alice Manerva Beard who were from the same area of Madison County. His siblings were Thomas, Clayton, Beamon, and Mary.
     He became an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church. While pastor at Mountain Home Presbyterian Church USA, in Franklin County Alabama, he met and married a young school teacher, Lucille Ezzell. She was born near Russellville in Franklin County to Thomas W. (Sam) Ezzell (b. 1849, d. 1932) and Sarah Jane Dempsey Ezzell (b. 1858, d. 1950). Lucille was the youngest of five children. Her siblings were Lenorah, Willie, Walter, and John F.
     While living in Belgreen, AL, their first daughter, Ruth was born. Soon after, they moved to Clifton, TN. The next move took them to Waynesboro in Wayne County, TN. They lived there for over twenty years and had three more daughters, Mildred, Nellie, and Grace. Lucille had given up public school teaching by then, but continued to teach in Sunday Schools and Bible Schools.
     My parents retired in 1944 and moved back to "the Home-place", a farm in Hazel Green, AL. They lived there until the time of their deaths. My father died September 4, 1976 at the age of 90. My mother died when she was 99 years old on October 10, 1996.
     I was the second daughter born in my family. When my parents left Tennessee, I was away at college. I met my husband James (Jim) A. Culpepper while attending the School of Nursing at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. He was at home on leave from the Air Force. After my graduation, we were married. We drove to the Al-Can highway to Anchorage, Alaska, where we lived for the next two and a half years while Jim was with the Armed Forces Radio, SAC. After that we lived in Florida, Alabama, Ohio, Maine, and then back to Huntsville, AL.
     In Huntsville, Jim worked in TV photography and radio broadcasting. He had a fatal heart attack July 18, 1978. I worked at Huntsville Hospital and the UAH Medical Clinics until retirement in 1991.
     Our first two daughters, Karen and Katherine, were born in Orlando, Florida. Our third daughter, Carol Ann, was born in Presque Isle, Maine. Karen is married to Tim Hartselle. She teaches second grade at Madison Elementary School and is working on her Masters in Elementary Education. Tim is a paramedic for H.E.M.S.I ambulance service and for MedFlight. Katherine (Kathy) completed her Master's of Divinity at Princeton University. She is an ordained minister in The Presbyterian Church, USA. She is living on Lake Michigan where she operates The Culpepper Inn Bed & Breakfast. Carol Ann married John Neff, who is an Insurance Claims Specialist. They live in Orlando, Florida with their two children. Their daughter Wallis Ann, is three years old. Their son, James Robert, is nine months old. (Written circa 1998 by Mildred Culpepper.)1
