Woman dies from crash injuries, man hospitalized

From staff reports
A Grand Ridge woman was
killed Monday in a traffic crash
on U.S.90 near Cypress. Driver
Betty J. McDaniel, 77, was taken
to Jackson Hospital after the
crash, where she succumbed to
,her injuries and was pronounced
McDaniel was westbound
in a Lincoln Town Car on U.S.
90 when an eastbound Chev-
rolet Colorado truck driven by
18-year-old Ben Castro drifted

left and crossed into her lane of
travel, according to a Florida
Highway Patrol report.
The crash occurred around 8:25
a.m. Monday morning about a
mile east of where U.S. 90 and In-
dian Springs Road meet. Castro,
of Sneads, was taken to South-
east Alabama Medical Center
for treatment of serious injuries.
According 'to the FHP report,
charges m.y be pending further
investigation. The report states.
tthat "seat belt usage for (Castro)
is under investigation."


Fairview Road was closed Monday after it was flooded during the weekend's
torrential rains.


lead to schooldelay

dbjclh;alterd,,c.luoridan com
Jackson County School Super-
intendent Steve Benton decided
Monday to start the new school
year qn Tuesday. It was originally
set to begin Monday, but heavy
weekend rains forced road clo-
sures, which forced the delay of
school startup. Benton had seri-
ously considered a second day's
delay, but ultimately decided
against it.
; Benton made the call af-
ter speaking with the Jackson
County, Road and Bridge de-
partment. Anyone who wants to
double-check for any last-min-
ute change of plan can call the
school board at 482-1200, where
an automated inclimate weather
line can be accessed at any time
of night or. day.
About 40 roads in Jackson
County were either completely
closed off or had sections shut
down as 'of late Monday after-
noon because of the downpours.
There were so many roads un--
derwater or washed out in sec-
tions that the county had to' bor-

row some barricades from the
state to mark them all.
Jackson County Commission
Chairman Chuck Lockey signed
a local "state of emergency"'
document Monday morning,
making it possible for the county
to borrow barricades from the
Department of Transportation.
Those were to be delivered by.
the agency, but had not arrived
as of 3 p.m. Monday. The dec-
laration also puts the county in
line to recoup some of its weath-
er-related costs, and those may
be significant.
Jackson County Road and
Bridge Superintendent Al Green
said his road team normally
works Monday through Friday
until about 3 p.m., but that many

New Council focused on education end

WestPoint Home is one of the
manufacturing operations in the
12-county regionof concern for the
newly-formed Northwest Floriodda
Manufacturers Council. Terry
Ellis, the vice president of U.S.
Operations for WestPoint Home, is
on the organization's

)) LOCAL...3A

A newly formed regional orga-
nization is trying to help school
systems prepare North Florida
young people for high-end jobs
in the manufacturing industry.
Its board of directors is made
up of people like Terry Ellis, vice
president of U.S. Operations for
WestPoint Home in Chipley. He
and former Florida Speaker of
the House Allen Bense, now an
officer with GAC Contractors, are
founding board members, with
Bense serving as vice-chairman
of the group. Their businesses
and 1f0 more companies are part
of the Northwest Florida Manu-

facturers" Council. Gulf Power
is a founding member, along
with International Paper, St. Joe
Company, Maritech Machine,
Fort Walton Machining; Excelis,
MERRICK Industries, Taminco,
Ascend Performance Materials,
and RockTenn. The group for-
mally came into existence about
three months ago, but the lead-
ers have been talking intently
since January about the need
for a force in the industry that
could communicate current and
projected business needs to the
Bense and Ellis came to Jack-
son County on' Monday to talk
about the goals of the organi-



zation, which covers JacksOn,
Holmes, Washington, Calhoun,
Liberty, Gulf, Franklin, Bay, Oka-
loosa, Walton, Escambia and
Santa Rosa counties.
Bense said the primary goal
is straightforward: To partner
with school systems, starting
with Pre-K and going all the way
- through to colleges, in trying to
make sure the educational sys-.
tem is preparing young people
for the high-end jobs in manu-
facturing that might come to
the region if a ready workforce
existed. The Council mem-

Man found dead at

JUPITER, Fla. -Authori-
ties say a man has been
found dead from a gun-
*shot wound inside a South
Florida home owned by
singer Olivia Newton-John
and her husband.
Jupiter police Sgt. Scott
Pascarella said Monday
that the unidentified
victim wasn't a resident or

He said the victim had
permission to be at the
home but hadn't been
staying there.
Initial media reports
listed the death as a sui-

the case is classified as a
death investigation. He
didn't say whether foul
play was involved.
The Palm Beach Post
reports construction was
being done on the home.

Obama urges regulators

to enact Wall Street rules

The Associated Press

years after President
Barack Obama signed
a sweeping overhaul of
lending and high-finance
rules, execution of the law
is behind schedule with
scores of regulations yet
to be written, let alone
enforced. Meeting pri-
vately with the nation's
top financial regulators on
Monday, Obama prodded
them to act more swiftly.
The president's push
comes as the five-year an-
niversary of the nation's
financial near-meltdown
approaches. The law,
when passed in 2010, was
considered a milestone in
*Obamiia's presidency, a ro-
bust response to the crisis
that led to a massive gov-
emrnment bailout to stabi-
lize the financial markets.
But the slow pace of
implementation has
prompted administra-
ion concern that banks
could still pose potentially
calamitous risks to the
economy and to taxpay-
ers. Obama hoped to con-
vey "the sense of urgency
that he feels," spokesman

In this 2007 photo,ia Wall Street sign is seen at an entrance to the New York Stock Exchange.
Three years after President BarackObama signed a sweeping overhaul of lending and high-
finance rules, implementation of the law is behind schedule with scores of regulations yet to
be written, let alone enforced.

Josh Earhest said before
the president convened
the meeting with the eight
independent regulators
in the White House Roos-
evelt Room.
-Lehman Brothers col-
lapsed into bankruptcy on
Sept. 15, 2008, and the ad-
ministration has wanted
to use that dubious mile-
stone to look back on the
lessons of the crisis and
progress so far to prevent
a recurrence. In a state--
ment at the conclusion
of the meeting, the White
House said Obama com-

mended the regulators for
their work "but stressed
the need to expeditiously
finish implementing the
critical remaining por-
tions of Wall Street reform
to ensure we are able to
prevent the type of finan-
cial harm that led to the
Great Recession from ever
happening again."
Not everyone feels that
way about the law, known
as Dodd-Frank after its
Democratic sponsors,
Rep. Barney Frank and
Sen. Christopher Dodd.
Republican House Fi-

-nancial Services Conmmit-
tee Chairman Jeb HIensar-
ling, an early opponent of
Dodd-Frank, dismissed
Obama's meeting with the
regulators, saying, "Much
like Obamacare, Dodd-
Frank is an incomprehen-
sively complex piece of
legislation that is harmful
to our floundering econ-
omy and in dire need of
Three years after pas-
sage, many other Repub-
lican lawmakers also see
the law as more negative
than positive.

Although MNonday
turned out to be a per-

wake of the storm system,
that wasn't enough to dry
out allthe roads and make
them passable.
"Quite a few are in de-
cent shape, but espe-
cially on .,the western
side of the county, there
are some in pretty rough
shape," Green said. "Run-
ning the buses is probably
going'to be a challenge
since almost all our roads
are part of the bus route,"
Green said.
"We've got a lot of roads
with some pretty bad
washouts, and we're try-
ing to fill those in until we
can do something more
permanent, but there's a
lot to do. We've been able
to grade a few of the roads,
but most of them are just

Green advised motor-

common sense over the
next few days; he said it's
possible that, in the case
of less-traveled roads, his
crews may not yet know of
all the washouts or other
road degradations caused
by the rains.
Fairview Road was still
underwater Monday and
will likely be for several
more days, Green said.

pipe had washed away

Sneads JV searching for continuity, consistency

The Sneads junior varsity Pirates will look to I k :
bounce back from a sub-.500 season in 2012
under new coach Bruce Hubbs, though there
remains more questions than answers at this _
point heading into the team's Aug. 29 opener
against Liberty County.
Sneads went 2-3 last year and lost a large
portion of the team's core, including talented
playmakers like Antwan Durn, javarris Good-
son,. and Devonte Petis. .
Hubbs is trying to build back up a roster ..
comprised totally of freshmen, but the coach
said it has been difficult thus far due to a lack .. *" :-
of continuity at practice. '.
The coach said that as of Monday he still
had not had a practice with his full expected
complement of 22 players since the start d"
fall practice two wee ksago.

Indians pitcher headed to.Tallahassee in 2014

dlerI'ij':tloridan corn

Chipola indians pitcher Michael Mad-
er has made his college choice known,
committing to play for the Florida State
Seminoles on Monday, picking FSU
over the University of Florida and Troy
The former Marianna Bulldogs player
had a brilliant freshman season for the
Indians in 2013, finishing 8-3 with a 3.19
Earned Run Average and winning his last
six Panhandle Conference starts to earn
the league's Pitcher of the Year award.
He drew interest from both FSU and
Florida and had an offer from Troy as
well, but ultimately he picked the pro-.
gram he grew up rooting against.

A life-long Gators fan. Mader said it
was a bit strange to envision himself
wearing the garnet and gold, but he had
to make the best and most logical deci-
sion for his career.
"It's actually very weird," he said. "Af-
ter the visit with Florida I felt like I was
stuck on Florida and it was more for the
fact that I'm a Gator fan. But I knew I
can't choose it because I'm a Gator fan.
I had to make sure I was doing the right
thing, and I just felt like FSU was meant
to be."
Mader said he was impressed by his
communications with Seminoles head
coach Mike Martin, as well as pitching
coach Mike Bell and assistant coach
Mike Martin, Jr., and encouraged by the
fact that the team willUJ lose at least three

of its top four starters after next season.
. "I liked the way it looks like for me to
come in next year and as long as I do
what I'm supposed to do get the spot
I want, which is a weekend starter," he
said. "It looks like they're starting fresh
next year. With UF, they don't know who
their weekend guys are going to be yet,
and it's tough to take a sophomore or
a junior out of that spot if they're set in
those spots and they've already adapted
to that level."
Although Mader is now committed
to FSU, he stilt has an eye towards pro-
fessional baseball and with another big
season could be drafted very high in the
2014 MLB Amateur Draft.

Annie's Mailbox

Dear AnnlW Three years ago, my mother
was diagnosed with lung cancer and
then a brain tumor. She has had numer-
ous surgeries andtreatments.
Mom is the youngest of five siblings.
The whole time she.has been fighting
this disease, her siblings have been un-
sipportive. In three years, one uncle has
visited twice and called twice. Another,
lives less than two miles away, but has
stopped by for a total of one hour. His
wife and kids have neither visited nor
My aunt speaks to my mother about
twice a year. She never visits. She also.
yells at Mom and is rude to her. She has
managed toconvince my 84-year-old
grandmother that these arguments are
myparents'.faultSeveral years ago, this
same aunt had cancer, and my mother
was there for her altthe time like fam-
fly should be.,- : .. ..
SIfind it hurtful and disheartening that
her siblings are so uncaring. They never
'offer to help, let alone offerwords of

comfort. Is this nornalbehavior? The
only thing my mother has asked for is
moral support ftom her family, and she
has'received none. My father, my brother
and I feel only animosity toward these
family members, knowing how much
they have hurt our mother. I think we
should forget about them and cut off
contact. What do you say?

Dear Daughter- We don't knowthy your
aunts and uncles haven't been more
Supportive. In some families, one'person
often becomes a "caregiver" by virtue
of his or her personality. It sounds as if
your mother is that person..Itmeans her
siblings do not know how to respond
.appropriatelyin caregiving situations
because they never have hadto do so.
Before you decide to cut them off, please
lt your mother decide. She may prefer to
forgivethem and continue therelation-
ships, although with a more limited set of
expectations. .

East wondered about intervening with four hearts, but

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com

From Page 1B
Mader was projected to
go as high .as the fourth
or fifth round in the 2013
draft before ultimately de-
ciding to pull his name out
and go back to school.
He said that if he is draft-
ed in the first round in next
year's draft that he would
almost certainly sign a
professional contract, and
odds could favor Mader
signing if he goes in the
top three rounds.
But while the prospect of
playing professional base-
ball is still at the forefront,
of his ambitions, Mader
said the chance to play
big-time Division-Il base-
ball is also a dream come
true forhim.
"It's definitely nice to
know that if I don't get
drafted where I want that
I'll get a chance to go to
FSU and be hia great posi-
tion to go to Omaha (site of
the College 'World' Series)
every year. It's awesome to
know that," he said. "Every
college player'sdream is to
play in the College World
Series, so it's a win-win for
Chipola coach Jeff John-
son was in contact with
Mader throughout the re-
cruiting process anrid said
that he believes his pitcher
made the best of many
good choices:
"He had some great op-
tions and .I told him he
needed to weigh the posi-.
tives and negatives and
also look at his situation
and do some research on
who is losing pitchers and
who has younger pitchers,
SandI thinkhe looked at all
of that," the coach,said.
'Any time you can be an
hour away from home and
get to play at a program
like FSU it's a good thing.
"I told him you're never
going to be totally sure
when- you have great op-
tions, so just make a great
choice and. go with it.
He's going to a great pro-
gram with great support,
great tradition, and great
fans. It's probably one of

"Normally a break would re-
