the iconic Russ House on
Lafayette Street in Marian-

missions, will accept that
But, members of the
Council pointed out, the
decision to further, ex-
.plore the idea should not
be considered a commit-
ment to sign on the dotted
line. The historic home has
belonged to the Jackson
County Chamber of Com-
merce since it underwent
and restoration using a
state historic preservation
grant in the early 1990s.
The Chamber purchased
it from the owners for less
than $50,000, and renova-

with a grant of almost
According to the vari-
ous estimates given by
five local realtors polled in

face charges of grand theft,
burglary of a structure, and
dealing in stolen property,
according to a press release
from- the Jackson County

The items were stolen from

tim called to report the thefts
on May 11, saying someone
had cut the perimeter fence
to the property to get inside
and steal commercial weld-
ing equipment, an equipment
Ulmer trailer, several construction
tools and anATV.
Jackson County investigators notified sur-.
rounding law enforcement agencies about
the incident as they looked into the case,
and got a call from the Chattahoochee Po-
lice Department on May 25. Authorities
there had recovered a substantial amount
of the stolen property while serving a search
warrarit of their own.
Authorities said that most of the prop-
erty from the River Road theft was recov-
ered from a house on Pine Street in Chat-
tahoochee, Where one of the menresided
with his girlfriend.
The discovery of the property on Pine
Street led to the identity of Ulmer and Hol-
ion as suspects, and investigators were
eventually able to recover the rest of the
stolen property from a residence on Blue
Arrow Drive in Dellwood.
Authorities say that a welder stolen in Riv-
er Road case had been sold to a person on
Blue Arrow Drive, a man who then in turn
sold the welder to a neighbor on the same
Neither buyer is currently implicated of
any wrongdoing in the case.
Investigators say Hollon and Ulmer, as of
Wednesday afternoon, were in the Gadsden

Camp in Graceville.
Registration has opened
for this June 29 and 30
event at Graceville High
School. Campers between
the ages of 10 and 17 are
invited to register. Anyone
who wants to be a coach
can register as well. It
costs $50 to enroll.
Staff will teach camp-
ers football basics, going
through each position
with them. The group will
run through drills like'
one-on-ones and some
group work like pass,
skeleton and offensive/de-
fensive line combination
work, Kelly said. Besides
football, guest speakers
including local business
leaders and former col-
legiate and NFL athletes
will give their message
about their life journey
and impart life skills.
"Kids need to see people
with ambition and goals,"
Kelly said. "They need to
realize that there is no
shortcut to success."
Investing an hour or
two into this program and
the campers is as good as
gold, Kelly said. Children
need to have good role
models, and supporting
programs like C.H.A.M.P.
Camp can provide them.
"We want them to de-
velop a culture of winning
at sport and life," Kelly
said. "Hopefully, they will
continue the C.HA.M.P.
Camp long after I'm gone."

nights later, the'Petty program left
with the confidence that it won't

"I can't reiterate enough that
we're making improvement," said
Almirola, who ended 16th in Sunday
night's Sprint Cup race. "We see
light at the end of the tunnel."
It's been a long and, at times, dark
tunnel for Petty, the NASCAR Hall of
Famer. He followed in father Lee's

the pieces necessary to win Sprint
"It was just a matter of putting

Winning the pole was a strong
step, what Ford called a "shot in
the arm" for everyone on the team.
"Now, we just have to build off that
and keep improving and I have no
doubt that we will," he said.
Almirola said he's steadily learned
and improved during his first trip
to NASCAR tracks as an RPM driver.
He's had only one top 10 an
eighth place at Martinsville and
was outside the top 20 in six of the
season's first nine races. However,
he was 12th at Talladega, 19th at
Darlington and 16th at Charlotte the
past three races.
Those are finishes that have every-

"When you go through a year like
we're going through, when you start

what it's all about."
Ford's expertise and experience
he helped Denny Hamlin to 17
wins and 66 top-5 finishes at Joe
Gibbs Racing are starting to
.pay off. Ford said he spent the first,
weeks observing more than getting
his hands dirty. That changed some
in Charlotte where Ford felt he was
more involved in getting the car
ready to race.
"I think as long as we keep our
heads down, this can happen on a
regular basis," Ford said.
Petty, who'll turn 75 on July 2,
hopes so, too. It seemed he had the
No. 43 in victory lane every week
when he was behind the wheel. Yet,
it's been 13 years since John An-
dretti raced one of NASCAR's most
famous numbers to a Sprint Cup
win at Martinsville. Still, Petty's got
his 'ights set on more than just a
victory; he's thinking the Chase for
Almirola stands 19th in points
with teammate Ambrose a spot
behind in 20th. "If we'can get a few

the team we get to the Chase, we're
going to be able to win races day in

Dear Annie: I am 45 years old, have
never been married and do not have
kids. I am a straight man looking for a
long-term relationship, but have had no
luck finding the right lady. I have tried
.several dating websites, to no avail. I
keep meeting divorced women with is-
sues and baggage far beyond what I can
handle. My longest relationship lasted
nine months and ended abruptly;
I have no problem dating divorcees
with kids, but they don't seem to want
a man in my situation. And I'm having
trouble meeting women who have never
been married and don't have children.
What can I do?
SINGLE TOO LONG
Dear Single: There are drawbacks to be-
ing 45 with no baggage. People wonder
what's wrong with you. Gather your
closest friends and relatives and ask for
an honest critique of your date-ability.
Be willing to work on their suggestions.
(Counseling can help if the issues relate
to your basic personality.) The rest is
Look only at the West hand and the auction.
What would you lead against six hearts? Four
no-trump was Blackwood. East bravely bid
five spades, hoping his opponents had not dis-
cussed how to show aces in this situation. And,
of course, they had not. But I recommended a
simple scheme: double no aces; pass one
ace; first step two aces; and so on.
So South bid five no-trump and North signed
off in six hearts. What should West have led?
I have to admit that I would have chosen
the same card as my student: the spade ace.
Now making the slam was easy. West led a sec-
ond spade. South discarded a club from the
dummy, drew trumps, played three rounds of
clubs, ruffing in the dummy. Then he returned
to hand with a trump and took the diamond fi-
nesse. When that worked, he claimed.
Now, it is true that six hearts can always be
made, but after, say, a trump lead, it is much
harder. I do not have enough space to explain
fully, but South draws trumps, takes three dia-
mond tricks, ruffs dummy's last diamond, and
runs trumps, bringing everyone down to four
cards. North has one spade and three clubs,'
South two spades and two clubs. But West is
squeezed, unable to keep three clubs and two
going where the women are. Do some
volunteer work. Travel. Join a choir, com-
munity theater, church group, political
organization, whatever interests you. It
will give women a chance to get to know
you without the pressure of a relation-
ship and vice versa. And keep in
mind that becoming a stepfather can be
rewarding as well as challenging. Please
don't dismiss it so quickly.
Dear Annie: "Hands Tied in Michigan"
said her husband works out of state and
sometimes doesn't call when he's back
from dinner with the guys.
I say the wife needs to develop her own
interests and friends and find ways to
keep busy while he is away so she is not
so demanding. It is excessive to expect
a phone call each night. She sounds
insecure and immature. After working all'
day and having dinner with co-workers,
he may be finished talking for the day.
Couples who have independent interests,
add more to their relationship.

Recall: LED clip-on desk lamps sold at Lowe's
The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the U.S. Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission, and He Shan Lide of
China, have announced the recall of about
33,000 LED clip-on desk lamps. The power
cord for the lamp can detach where it meets
the clamp, exposing energized wires, posing
an electric shock risk to consumers.
The firm has received five reports of cords de-
taching, including one reported electric shock
and one report of a child receiving burns to
her hand and leg.
This recall conducted by He Shan Lide in-
volves pink and blue plastic LED desk lamps
with a flexible metal neck approximately 12"
long and a clamp at the base. The power cord
has a silver label attached to it. On one side
of the label "MET," "Electrical Safety",
"E113152" and "Apr. 2011" are printed. The
other side of the label includes the model
number F3044-AC-01 (pink lamps) or F3044-
AC-02 (blue lamps). The plug on the power
cord is labeled "KENIC KE 01P E155176."
The recalled lamps were manufactured un
China, imported by L G Sourcing, Inc., of
North Wilkesboro, N.C., and sold exclusively
at Lowe's stores nationwide from May 2011
to December 2011 for about $20.
Consumers should immediately stop using
the lamp, unplug the power cord, cut the pow-
er cord off 2" to 3" above the plug, discard
the lamp and send the plug to He Shan Lide,
4570 Eucalyptus Ave, Suite C, Chino, CA
91710, along with their name and address to
receive a full refund, including the cost of
postage for returning the plug.
For additional information, call He Shan Lide
at (800) 584-1664 between 12 noon and 8:00
p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the
website at www.diogenlighting.com.

From Page 1A
The Chamber is now free
to sell it, and is giving the
TDC an opportunity to
purchase it before putting
in on the open market. The
Chamber has indicated it
is willing to offer a friend-
ly price, since Chamber
members would like it
to stay in public use as a
center of tourism, but no
specific number has been
presented as yet.
In recent years, the TDC
has leased the house, and
subleased a portion of
it back to the Chanber,
which currently remains
the overall owner. The
TDC also hired the Cham-
ber to run day-to-day TDC
business, with the Cham-

SWhen the GWC labor con-
tribution is added in, the
community savings come
to about $1,545,376, of-
ficials estimated, with a
total of $584,309 of that
attributable to the GCI
Together, the squads put
in about 90,000 hours over
the course of the year. The
savings were calculated on
a $16.91-per-hour wage.
In the farm program, JCI
inmates grow vegetables
to feed the home prison's
population and well as in-
mates at other state pris-
ons across the state.
The prison partners with
the University of Florida

riculture Services in this
program. In exchange for

ment and crop rotation
advice, and allowing them

ties under the Russ House
roof. The arrangement al-
lowed the county to pick
up the insurance on the
building, since the TDC is
a quasi-governmental en-
tity under its authority. The
insurance had shot from
just over $2,300 in 2003 to
more than $20,000 in 2008
under the commercial rate
that the Chamber had to
pay. With TDC the lessee,
that reduced the insurance
rate to about $7,000.
But the Chamber ulti-
mately decided that even
the insurance relief is not
enough to keep the costs
of the House low enough
for the Chamber to main-
tain as it strives to carry
out its primary mission as

In the 2010-11 grow and
harvest season, the in-
mates produced 78,000
pounds of corn, broc-
coli, cabbage, squash
and greens for an esti-
mated food cost savings
of $35,715. In 2011-12,
they grew 313,755 pounds
of corn, squash, cabbage
and turnips, enough to
save DOC $90,025 in the
cost of food.

At Tuesday's special
TDC board meeting, some
members of that board
wondered, too, whether
the costs of upkeep would
be too much for it to take
on, and whether buying
the house would be a wise
use of bed tax dollars.
Two members of that
board Daniele McDan-
iel and Judy Riley voted
against pursuing it any
further, but were outvoted
7-2. Those voting to pur-
sue pointed out that going
forward does not obligate
the TDC to follow through
with the purchase, but
would give it the latitude
to explore if Jackson Coun-

Florida teachers union
oppose evaluation rule
TALLAHASSEE -A law-
yer for Florida's statewide
teachers union urged an
administrative law judge
Wednesday to block a
proposed rule on teacher
evaluations that would be,
used in part to determine
who' gets merit pay.
The Florida Education
Association and two indi-
vidual teachers contend
the state Department of
Education's proposal is
vague and arbitrary and
does not conform to a law
passed last year, which
requires school districts
to adopt evaluation and
merit pay plans.
The department and
State Bbard of Education,
which has not yet ad-
opted the rule, contend it
conforms to the 2011 law,
which also ends tenure for
newly hired teachers.
The evaluations would
rely heavily on student
testing including the.
Assessment Test, or FCAT.
Besides merit pay, the
evaluations would be used
to impose sanctions up
to dismissal on low-rated
The rule challenge,
though, is secondary to
the union's frontal attack
on the law itself through a
lawsuit pending in a Tal-
lahassee trial court.
It alleges the law is un-'
constitutional because the
Legislature passed it with-
out first going through
the collective bargaining
Judge John Van Land-
ingham will make his
decision on the proposed
rule later. The losing side
then can take his order to

World powers worry Syria sliding to civil war
The Associated Press
GENEVA World pow-
ers share a belief that Syria
could descend into civil
war and plan to map out
possible ways to avoid
such a disaster for the re-
gion, a deputy to interna-
tional envoy Kofi Annan
told reporters after pri-
vately briefing the U.N.
Security Council, the world
body's most powerful unit,
that diplomats are deeply
troubled by Syria's cycle of
"I believe thatin the coun-
cil there's an understand-
ing that any sliding toward
full-scale civil war in Syria
would be catastrophic, and
the Security Council now
needs to have that kind of
strategic discussion on how
that needs to be avoided,"
Guehenno said in Geneva
after speaking to the New
York-based Security Coun-
cil by videoconference..
* However, there was no in-
dication that Russia, one of
the veto-wielding perma-
nent members of the Secu-
rity Council, Was changing
its position on Syria.
Dmitry Peskov, President
Vladimir Putin's spokes-
man, was quoted as say-
ing by the ITAR-Tass news
agency Wednesday that
"there can be no talk"
about a shift in Russia's
stance on Syria under for-
Russia, along with China,
has twice shielded Syrian
President Bashar Assad's
regime from the U.N. sanc-
tions over his crackdown
on protests. Syria is Rus-
sia's last ally in the region,
providing Moscow with its
only naval base outside the
former Soviet Union and a
top customer for Russian
Guehenno, the Annan
deputy and a former U.N.
peacekeeping chief, also
warned of the possibility
of outside groups and ter-
rorists 'taking advantage of
the violence. "In any situa-
tion where there is a risk of
civil war you have opportu-
nistic actors, if one can say
that, thatcan try to exploit
that," he said.
Guehenno said he told
the closed session of the 15-
nation council thatAnnan's
six-point peace plan to end
the 15-month conflict must
be fully implemented and
that political process must
include talks between the
Syrian government and the
"It's very important that
the Security Council be
united in pushing for a po-
litical process," Guehenno
Annan held talks with
Assad in Damascus on
Tuesday following the
weekend massacre in Hou-
la of more than 100 people,
many of them women and
At the U.N. headquarters
in New York, Germany's
U.N. Ambassador Peter
Wittig said Guehenno told
the council that while An-
nan was in Damascus he
appealed to the Assad's
government "to take bold
steps forward" to end the
violence immediately and
implement the peace plan.
U.S. Ambassador Susan
Rice said the worst but
most probable scenario in
Syria is a failure of Annan's
