Ten Steps to Conserving Energy
and Controlling Electric Costs
Keep the thermostat as high as comfortable possible during the
summer months.. A good rule of thumb is to set .\our thermostat for 78
degrees. By the same token, each degree below 78, can cost 5-6 percent
more for cooling energy-
Fans cost less to use than the air conditioner; rely on them as much
Keep windows shaded from direct sunlight whenever poilible.
Blinds and curtains will block the sun and keep your house cooler.
Awnings or porcites are effective ways to reduce heat gain in the sum;
Set your water heater to 120 degrees or the "Lo\<" setting to sale
energy. If your dbihwasher does not have a booster hear element. You
may need to increase the temperature to 140 degrees for good pertoibl-
Only run the wishing machine and dishwasher

about 11 percent.

pliers for coal and natural gas, it has
requested the Florida Public Service
Commission to adjust consumer

A committee of Cottondale-area residents
will help craft a resolution for Jackson County
commissioners to consider as the board decides
. whether to allow it tbl1 road to be built within
The road would be an I-10 connector meant
to give southeast Alabama fast-paced access to
Interstate 10 in northwest Florida, and would
likely go on to cut a path to the Gulf coast in
Focus 2000, an organization with roots in
Dothan, Ala., wants to establish the access road
to I-10, using the toll to pay offibonds that
would be issued to build it. The group has con-
sidered various general routes through the
region, and needs the in-writing cooperation of
host counties to proceed with its plan.
Focus 2000 could ask the county to sign a
resolution authorizing exploration of a toll road
plan as soon as July.
A crowd of more than 300 people made it
clear at a meeting in Cottondale Tuesday that
they want their voices heard as the county con-

While many Jackson County families are struggling
with higher gas and food costs, Jackson County students
will not be paying more for school breakfast or lunch any
Among several other items, the Jackson County School
Board unanimously voted to approve a contract with
Sodexho Food Service.
During discussion of the contract, board members con-
firmed that the cost of school meals would not be any dif-
ferent than the last school year.
Superintendent Danny Sims said he's pleased that, dur-
ing a time when many parents are facing financial hard-
ships, they won't have to worry about paying more for
their students to eat.
Sims satid the price of a school lunch is notably less
expensive than a meal at a fast food restaurant.
In the contract, rates for meals were listed as follows:

may have been premature because sp few
details have been put together as of yet.
For instance, a corridor generally delin-
eating a possible path for the road has
been established, but it covers a wide path
in places. The model shows that the
north-to-south road could hug the
.Washington/Jackson County line near
Cottondale as it moves down from
Alabama, or be built as far east as
Marianna. At its widest, the possible path
covers roughly 13 miles. At its narrowest,
it covers about three nules.
Stanton.had agreed to the meeting at
the request of community member Linda
Dilmore, but said he'd expected a much
smaller crowd. Dilmore said she'd only
invited 20 or 25 people, but was pleased
by the large turnout. It was only after the
majority of the audience had left that the
conversation between Stanton and those
remaining settled down.
After a period of discussion with this
smaller group, Stanton had asked those
who remained to stand if they were in
agreement that a resolution should be
drafted for Tackson County commission-
ers to review. Everyone or nearly every-
one in the room stood, and then Stanton
pointed to the five people named above
and asked them in turn if they would be
willing to serve on a resolution commit-
Jackson County is currently being
looked at closely as the primary host
commumty along the path to I-10 and
Bay County, now that Washington
County commissioners have declined (p
enter an agreement with the not-for-prof-
it entity. Washington County was the first
choice, in part because it offered a more
direct line to Panama City Beach.
Some members of the Cottondale busi-
ness community, like Kountry Candy
Store owner Lacy Farkash, fear that the
toll road would make a ghost road of U.S.
231 as far as their business traffic is con-
Farkash said she and other businesses
along U.S. 231 depend on the business
generated by motorists who stop at their
stores dn the way to and from Panama
City Beach and other points south..
Speaking to that point, Stanton
acknowledged that U.S. 231 businesses
would likely feel a loss if the toll road
were to materialize in Jackson County,
but he said that could happen whether or
not the route comes through here. He said
he felt the Alabama contingent is deter-
mined to create a route to I-10 some-
where, and that Jackson County needs to
at least explore the possibility before tak-
ing itself out of play. ,
If Focus 2000 puts its road elsewhere,
Stanton said, Jackson County would be
losing some U.S.. 231 traffic anyway as
truckers and others seek out the faster
path to I-10 and the coast.
Stanton said that, on the other hand,.
, having the connector in Jackson County
could open up new business centers and
jobs around the access points to the con-
nector. He said Graceville and
Campbellton governments have already
expressed an interest in exploring the
idea, and that Focus 2000 has committed
to putting in an access ramp on the con-
nector at Highway 2 near those communi-
ties if it comes through Jackson County in
that sector of the candidate corridor.
The crowd was standing-room only
when the meeting began at 7 p.m. and
remained so for the npajority of the time.
Tempers flared as the discussion touched
on several other sensitive subjects. In
addition to the potential threat to busi-
nesses in Cottondale, individual property
rights and quality of life issues were
among the top concerns. .
Concerns about property,
quality of life
Some people spoke with emotion about
their family homesteads, saying they
were concerned that the county might
invoke its power of eminent domain to
force the sale of any property needed for
the access road.
Many at the meeting wanted assurances
in writing that the county would not use
that power, and some said that writing
that proviso into a resolution might be
one ivay of achieving that assurance.
Stanton pointed out that the county has
never used eminent domain for economic
development projects and that he and the
county commission board members noty
seated are, to a man, "philosophically
opposed" to the idea. Stanton said he
would not personally participate in any
plan that would include seizure by emi-
nent do41ain, but some members of the
audience still wanted something on paper.
Some audience members also won-
dered about the toll road's future upkeep.
Once the debt is paid off, the toll ioad
would be turned over to the county for
maintenance. Some wondered if it would
become a liability with age, and others
said they've seen toll roads fail in the past
because there wasn't enough paying traf-
fic to foot the construction bill.
Others wondered whether the coristruc-
tion of a toll road could impede traffic
patterns on adjacent dirt roads.
Some wanted to know how quickly
emergency service providers could be
routed onto the road itselftin the event of
traffic crashes at various points on the
Some members of the public said they
just don't want the additional traffic com-
ing through their community if it means
more noise and nuisance
In ,addition to facing a larger crowd
than he'd anticipated, Stanton was also
thrown another curve at the meeting.
A surprise development .
Someorig in the crowd showed him
paperwork from the state showing that
articles of incorporation had been filed on
May 21 by an entity known as Focus 2000
of the Panhandle, Inc.
Jeff Adams is listed as the registered
agent. Three board members are listed as
Ron Meers (a developer-UPI of Orlando),
Steven Shaw (of Couch USA
concrete/construction materials company
based in Dothan with an office in
Marianna, and Bob Bunting. Joe
Chambers is listed as the incorporator.
Although Stanton has been in contact
with at least one of the named parties -
Shaw he said he had no idea the papers
had been filed.
Stanton said he was blindsided by that
development, and called the action "a stu-
pid move bn the part of whoever did it."

"I'm really proud of Yates Racing," Gilliland
said. "From where we were last year, ... just
in these [first] 16 races, it's 180 degrees, and
I think it still has the potential to get even
better. I'm real proud of that, real proud
being a part of that "
Busch said that even though he and Gilliland
are good friends, going back several years, "I

Ambrose, a 31-year-old Aussie making the
jump to NASCAR, did a superlative job in his
first Cup start, right up until the moment he
got bopped by Elliott Sadler, a late incident
that put the Woods' Ford behind the wall.
Ambrose called it "a great car," and his
work for the Woods may be a good omen for
the team, which has struggled this season.
"We were fighting with Elliott pretty hard,
and he got into the-back of us, spun us out,"-
Ambrose said. "I was actually just selecting
first gear on the downshift when he hit me.
The impact must have shoved the gearbox
and broke the gears.
"But we leave with our heads held high. We
raced hard, and we raced well at the front,
and it was just a lot of fun.
"I couldn't believe it. Here I am passing Jeff
Gordon and racing with Dale Earnhardt Jr. It's
just fantastic. It's what I dreamed about."
Hendrick's Gordon did manage to pull off a
third-place finish, but that seemed to be a
fluke run. His car was terrible all weekend, And
if not for several crashes and some good luck;
Gordon wouldn't have even made the top 10.
Gordon was in an'odd mood afterward,
giving Busch a backhanded compliment.
"I'm really impressed with Kyle, because
I've been around him and I don't think he's
a very good road racer," Gordon said. "I'm
kind of shocked actually."

26th at Michigan,
It's time for a turnaround, if he and crew
chief Gil Martin are to hang in for the Chase.
Last season, Bowyer and Martin sneaked
into the Chase. This 'year?
"It has been a lot different," Bowyer said.
"Making the Chase was tough, and then finish-
ing third. A lot of things have changed.
"But still you have to be good week-in,
week-out. We are focused on bouncing back
. from three or four bad runs. We had some
bad luck, we had a part failure. I crashed out
in Pocono. It is time to get back on track."

Bowyer had his second straight fourth-place

"The track has been good to us," Bowyer
said. "You have to hone in on fuel milenge ...
and be fast. You still have to be fast on these

"I really enjoy the technical part of the
Sonoma course. It is slower and more tech-
nical than Watkins Glen. I enjoy this one
more than Watkins Glen. The Glen is real
fast, wide-open throw the car around and
go. At Sonoma you have to really hit your
marks and focus.
"If you race the track, make good fuel
mileage, and make the right decisions, you
will have a good finish.
"If you get caught up racing people, well,
there are always people on different agendas

have to just keep racing the track. Keep the
big picture in mind.

By Mike Mulhem
Kyle Busch proved Sunday in Sonoma that
his road-course win in Mexico City earlier
this season was no fluke.
Busch, NASCAR's biggest winier this season'
won his fifth Sprint Cup race with a two-lap
overtime liotory over David Gilliland in the
Tovota/Save Mart 350.
But Busch's regaining momentum after a
couple of tough weeks wasn't the only big
.story of the weekend.
Marcos Ambrose's stunning performance in
the Wood brothers' Ford and another rough
weekend for Rick Hendrick's drivers were
also major stories.
Buseh was almost surprised at how his
weekend turned out.
"We unloaded and we were absolutely
horrible," he said. "We were so bad we
didfi't know what was going on. ;
"Friday I thought it was just going to be a
dismal weekend, and I was trying to figure
out what tire barrier we were going to put it
in, because it wksia't fun. I've never tixrned a
race car around that much."
Gilliland's run to second was easily.his best
