The Jackson County Tourist
Development Council is poised
to recommend Jackson County
resident Pam Fuqua as the or-
ganization's first executive di-
rector, in an arrangement that
would have her working as 'an
independent contractor rather
than a county employee with full
The board's first choice can-
didate, Judy Brooten, turned
the job down after she and the
TDC reached an impasse on
contract terms, largely related to
insurance and liability
One member of the board,
Daniele McDaniel, voted against
hiring Fuqua, saying she felt that
Fuqua did not have enough spe-
cific experience in the field to
take on the job.
If Jackson County Commis-
sioners'approve the TDC's plan
to hire Fuqua, who ran a close
second.to Brooten when, the list
was first narrowed, the TDC will
offer Fuqua the last version of
the contract that Brooten and
the county had worked on be-
fore she ultimately declined the

drafts at that point. If Fuqua
and the board cannot come
to terms, or if the commission

hire, the TDC could select an-

son County Sheriff's Office for Law
Enforcement Appreciation Day.
Jackson County Sheriff Lou Rob-
erts pointed.out the difference in law
enforcement officer deaths between
2011 and 2012.
By this time in 2011, about 33 U.S.
law enforcement officers had been
killed by gunfire, Roberts said. This
year, that number decreased to 15.
There were about 23 traffic-related
deaths' for law enforcement officers
in 2011, Roberts said. This year, the
number decreased to 14. Last year,
about 17 deaths were categorized
as "other." This year, the "other"
number decreased to 11.

On Wednesday, Jackson County Chamber of
Commerce Chairman-Elect John Alter presents a
proposalto sell the Chamber's current home, the
historic Russ House, to the Tourist Development
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Not everyone on the Jackson County Tour-
ist Development Council thinks it's a good
idea to buy the historic Russ House.'
Two members of the board Daniele Mc-
Daniel and Judy Riley voted not to pursue
the deal. The two-story house on Lafayette
Street in Marianna currently belongs to,
-and is headquarters for, the Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce. Chamber Chair-
man-Elect John Alter appeared before the
TDC Wednesday to offer the house to the
TDC before it goes out to general sale. No
price has been quoted as yet, and despite
the negative votes by McDaniel and Riley,
the TDC board agreed to get an appraisal
and move forward with research on whether
to buy the structure.
McDaniel questioned whether the Council
should take on a building that requires as
much as $36,00Q worth of maintenance each
Riley referred to the potential purchase as
something she considered a "bail-out" for
But Alter took exception to that remark,
saying that the offer is not a bail-out at-
tempt. He said the Chamber is offering the
house to the TDC as a courtesy before open-
ing it up to a general sale, because the busi-
ness organization would like the Russ House
to stay in "the family" of advocates trying to

"We want producers to know that DCP

had the option to participate in DCP or
ACRE. A producer who initially chose to
remain in DCP has an option to switch to
ACRE during th' current enrollment peri-

roll in ACRE cannot switch back to DCP.
Producers can make use of the electron-

who are eligible to participate in the DCP

Defense rests without calling Edwards
The Associated Press
GREENSBORO, N.C. John Ed-
wards' defense team rested Wednes-
day without calling the two-time
Democratic presidential candidate
or his one-time mistress to the wit-
ness stand, a sign of confidence after
presenting little more than two days
of testimony and evidence.
The defense had called a series of
witnesses aimed at shifting the jury's
focus from the lurid details of a po-
litical sex scandal to the legal ques-
tion of whether the Edwards' actions
violated federal campaign finance
Prosecutors spent nearly three
weeks trying to convince a jury that
Edwards masterminded a conspir-
acy to use nearly $1 million secretly
provided by two wealthy donors to
help hide his pregnant mistress, Ri-
elle Hunter, as he sought the White
House in 2008.
Many people watching the case
believed Edwards would testify so
the jury could hear directly from the
former U.S. senator and trial lawyer,
who had a reputation for his ability
to sway jurors.
But putting Edwards on the stand
was also a gamble: It would have
exposed him to withering cross-ex-
amination about his past lies and
Most experts were convinced call-
ing Hunter to testify would have
dredged up more negatives and lies.
The defense also elected not to ques-
tion Edwards' oldest daughter, Gate,
who has sat behind Edwards nearly
every day of the trial and could have
helped humanize him.
At one point during the trial, she
ran out of the courtroom in tears
during testimony about her can-
cer-stricken mother confronting
her father about his extramarital
The judge told jurors that no more
witnesses would be called and clos-
ing arguments would be Thursday,
with the jury likely beginning delib-
Edwards is charged with six crimi-
nal counts including conspiracy to
violate the Federal Election Cam-
paign Act, accepting contributions
that exceeded campaign finance lim-
its, and causing his campaign to file
a false financial disclosure report.
He fades up to 30 years in prison
and $1.5 million in fines if convicted
of all charges.
Edwards has sat quietly at the
defense table throughout his trial,
whispering with his lawyers and
rarely showing reaction to the often
emotional testimony from witnesses
who were once among his stron-
gest supporters and closest friends.
He has made no public statements
since October, following a pre-trial
hearing where a judge refused to
throw out the criminal case against
At the trial, prosecutors have
shown two members of Edwards' in-
ner circle, campaign finance chair-
man Fred Baron and once-close aide
Andrew Young, engaged in a year-
long cover-up to hide the married
presidential candidate's mistress
from the media. Young, who is mar-
ried, falsely claimed paternity of his
boss' baby and received $725,000 in
secret checks from an elderly heir-
ess, using some of the money to care
Baron, a wealthy Texas lawyer, pro-
vided Young and Hunter with more
than $400,000 in cash, luxury hotels,
private jets and a $20,000-a-,nonth

Prosecutors have introduced
phone records, voicemails and other
evidence showing Edwards was. in
frequent contact with Baron, Young
and Hunter, all while his mistress
was in hiding. Former members of
Edwards' campaign also testified
that Baron spoke of "moving Hunter
around" in the candidate's presence
and that Edwards told his speech-
writer he knew "all along" what
Baron was up to.

The coach said that he has been very happy
with how his first spring session has gone, but
there was no way to tell just how prepared his
team was for a challenge like Freeport.
"Are we ready? Yes and no," he said. "We've just
got so much to put in. We've got our base stuff
in, but we'll be real simple in' what we're run-

where we're at.
"I'm excited about it. It's live competition
against a reallywell coached team.We'll see if the
guys have been listening and if we're coached
up. I'm nervous about it, to be honest."
Beach was effusive in his praise of Freeport
coach Jim Anderson, who has led the Bulldogs
to 28 victories over the past three seasons, in-
cluding four in the playoffs.
"Anytime you can compete against a guy like
coach Anderson and if you can beat him on top
of it, that would say a lot about your team," he
said. "That guy doesn't come in unprepared,
and he and his staff does a great job. We would

ARIES (March 21-April 19)
If it seems like everything
is going against you at this
moment in time, you must
keep your cool if you're to
have any hope of making
things come out your way.
Dear Annie: For the past five years, I've
been with the most wonderful woman.
"Jane" and I plan to marry, but we haven't
set a date because she has two adult
daughters who still live at home, and
their future plans are unsettled.
Her younger daughter, "Trudi;" is
24 and recovering from a debilitating
gambling problem. Trudi lost her job,
got caught stealing family heirlooms
and was arrested for drunk driving. Jane
eventually kicked her out. Trudi bounced
from place to place, landed at a homeless
shelter, met an irresponsible young man
and got pregnant. At that point, Jane
made the difficult decision to bring Trudi
back home so she could help raise her
grandchild. Things actually worked out.
Trudi is sober and no longer gambling,
and she has become a trusted member of
the household again. (The father of the
baby is not in the picture.) Trudi hasn't
had much opportunity to look for a job.
Jane works all day and then goes home to
take care of her granddaughter. The other
daughter is busy with work, school and
Winston Churchill said, "One ought never to turn
one's back on a threatened danger and try to run
away from it. If you do that, you will double the dan-
ger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinch-
ing, you will reduce the danger by half."
That is easy to say, especially if the danger is read-
ily apparent. Sometimes, though, the menace is hid-
den around the corner. Then, having to guess what
might be waiting makes life much harder.
In this deal, many declarers would go down in six
hearts, not anticipating what is about to happen.
Only the wary would take the necessary precaution.
What should South do after West leads the club six?
South's four-heart opening showed a strong eight-
card suit and, usually, 5 to 10 high-card points.
North's raise to five hearts asked South to bid a
slam with at most a one-loser suit.
It looks so easy to take the first trick on the board
and to start drawing trumps. Here, though, disaster
can strike, East winning with his ace and giving his
partner a club ruff.
The only danger is that ruff. And there is a way to
avoid it. After taking the first trick on the board, de-
clarer should cash the two top spades and discard
his remaining clubs. Then he calls for dummy's
trump. East can win and play a club, but South can
ruff high, draw trumps and claim, his diamond loser
disappearing on one of dummy's club winners.
a serious boyfriend. She does not take
much interest in her niece.
In the past 18 months, intimate rela-
tions with Jane have steadily declined.
Menopause is a factor, but it's mostly
because she has a lot on her plate. She
hasn't been to my house in months,
and when I'm at hers, I try to care for
the baby so Jane can sit down and rest.
I feel like our relationship is slipping
Saway. We've talked briefly about it, but I
simply want more than Jane can give. Is
this just a rough patch, or is this our new:
Dear Too Much:You sound like a good
guy who is trying to help with a stressful
situation. Raising a baby is exhausting,
and we are certain that Jane appreciates
your patience and assistance. Instead
of pressuring her for intimacy, ask what
she thinks you can do to improve your
relationship. She will always have two
daughters and a grandchild. Decide
whether you can handle that.

Mr. Ethan L. Branch, 71,
a native of Alliance, passed
away Monday, May 14,
2012, at his home in Grand

dent of this area since 1956,
coming from Wewahitchka
and had retired from Law
Enforcement with the City
of Chattahoochee and the
Florida State Hospital in
SChattahoochee and was a
member of the Shady

to all and was surrounded
by his family and friends at
the time of his passing.

thing had to change. I know that
violence in America in general is up,
but in Florida we are glad to see we
have seen a reduction in crime, and
I am hoping that will also reflect in
the number of our officer killed in
the line of duty."
Florida leads the nation in the
number of officers killed so far this
year, Roberts said. Clay County
Sheriff's Office Detective David
White died from gunfire on Feb. 16.
Brevard County Deputy Sheriff Bar-

6. Florida Department of Correc-
tions Sgt. Ruben Howard Thomas,
III was stabbed to death on March
"We must all work together to pre-
vent any further deaths," Roberts
said. "We know this is a dangerous
job. We know what we do is some-
thing that nobody else really wants
to do. This is a ... sometimes a thank-
less job, but the rewards are many."
Roberts pointed out the increases
in law enforcement officers being
sworn in. There are about 900,000
officers in the U.S., Roberts said.
Last year, this increased by 13 per-

Key Republican: JPMorgan $2B loss raises questions
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON A key House
Republican says the $2 billion trad-
ing loss at JPMorgan Chase raises
critical questions about how banks
control their risks. But Republican
lawmakers rejected calls from Dem-
ocrats for stricter regulation.
chairman of the House Financial
Services subcommittee, noted the
loss during a hearing about how to
regulate banks big enough to bring
down the broader financial system.
Lawmakers said a firm's character
should count when regulators de-
termine if they are systemicallyy im-
portant financial institutions." Such
a designation would subject them to
a stricter level of oversight.
The panel's hearing on a key tenet
of the 2010 regulatory overhaul was
scheduled well before JPMorgan re-
vealed its trading misfire last week.
Republicans on the subcommittee
denounced the overhaul's require-
ment for financial firms to be tagged
as systemicallyy important." They
said it really means a firm is consid-
ered "too big to fail" the doctrine
that brought taxpayer bailouts of

sters the case for stricter rules.

Home construction is
near a three-year high.
And factory output has
risen in three of the year's
first four months.
The data released
growth in the -April-June
quarter is off to a good
start, helped by falling gas
prices and solid hiring
gains. Fears of a spring
slump are easing.
"It's all very encourag-
ing," said Paul Ashworth,
chief U.S. economist at,
Builders broke ground
in April at a seasonally
adjusted annual pace
of 717,000 homes, the
said. That nearly matches
January's pace, the best
since October 2008.
Some economists have
noted that a warm winter
led companies to move
up some hiring and ac-
celerate other activity-
- that normally wouldn't
occur until spring. That
gave the appearance
that the economy had
strengthened in Janu-
ary and February and
weakened in March.
But Ashworth noted
that the overall trend in
housing starts has been
running at roughly"the
same annual pace -
approximately 700,000 -
over the past six months.
That's 100,000 more on
average than the pace fo|
the previous six months.!
Ashwdrth said the high-
er level suggests demand
is increasing and the mild
winter had less ,effect
than some economists
"We expect starts to
strengthen further this
year," Ashworth wrote in
a note to clients.
Even with the gains, the
rate of construction for
all homes is only about
half the 1.5 million an-
nual pace that most

along with rising builder
confidence and stronger
job growth, is a sign that

Day Trips contract
, BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
A sub-committee of the
Jackson County Tourist
Development Council is
recommending that Jack-
son County Commission-
ers approve a proposed
12-page contract that
would be used to seek
out a driver/manager of
a "Day Trips" program to
lure beach-goers inland
for tours of sites in Jack-
son, Holmes and Wash-
The full TDC board
wants a look at the con-
tract before it is forward-
ed to commissioners, but
it is expected to be pre-
sented to'the local gov-
erning body soon.
Jackson and Washing-
ton counties would split
the cost of the program
equally, with Jackson
County's share coming
out of bed tax dollars.
The TDC had also ear-
lier recommended that
some money from the
Same fund be spent to
help with the cost of pro-
ducing a tri-fold quar-
terly brochure that pro-
motes events in the two
counties. Jackson County
that expenditure earlier
this year. The .summer
brochure is due out soon.
It includes information
about two upcoming golf
tournaments being host-
ed by the Chamber of
Commerce and the Jack-

Firefighters, the summer
concert series sponsored
by Jackson County Parks
and Recreation and Main
Street Marianna, the Cov-
enant Hospice Garden
Gala, Marianna's 4th of
July celebration, and sev-
eral Washington County
As for the Day Trips
program, the contrac-
tor would be expected to
provide transportation oi
subcontract it to some-
one else with prior ap-
proval, market the tours,
coordinate the trips, and
price them, with some
limited marketing assis-
tance and funding from
the counties. The con-
tractor would act as an in-
dependent operator with
no employee benefits,
and would be required
to provide all applicable
insurance, licenses and
permits. He or she would
also be required to make
sure the host of the visit
has any necessary li-
ability insurance before
delivering tourist to the
The contractor would
be required to get prior
approval for expenses
that he or she would
then seek draws on the
balance of funds in the
annual program budget,
which had not been de-
termined as of Wednes-
day. The first term of the
contract would conclude
sometime in 2013, with a
three-year renewal to fol-
low if all' parties are sat-
isfied with the arrange-
ment. There is a 30-day
termination clause as
well, and a provision that
would give the counties
the ability to instruct the
operator to cease op-
erations immediately on

TDC to help pay for brochures, display racks
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
SThe Jackson County
Board voted Wednesday to
recommend that moneybe
used from bed tax dollars
to pay for 10 display racks
to promote downtown
Marianna and other Jack-
son County attractions.
The racks would be
placed in the lobbies of
all 10 motels leading into
Marianna from the east-
side Interstate 10 corri-
dor, State Road 71, and
will together cost a total of
$2,436. The board also rec-
ommends paying for the
design and publication of
a new brochure to replace
the existing 10-year-old
self-guided walking tour of
historic homes in Jackson

dations for the plans to go

chures comes to $4,594.

Brunner said members
of the'Chipola Historical
Society have volunteered
250 man hours to help edit
and research the publica-

time valued at $3,750 if
they had been paid for it.

agree to be featured. The

homes in those two towns.

Executive Director Char-
lotte Brunner is to get with
local historians for infor-
mation on houses in other
areas. Adding pages might
increase the price of publi-
cation, she said.
The existing book has
been informally updated
over time with four inserts
that volunteers have had to
fold into the brochure by
hand, and some sites have
been renovated since the
flier was first published, as
well. It's time to polish up
the book and bring every-
thing up to date, Brunner
There dill be room for
the new brochure and in-
formation on four other
attractions in the display
racks that would be pur-
chased, Brunner said, and
the brochures would also
be placed at key spots
downtown and given out
at special events.
The plastic display racks
are free-standing racks,
with space for a poster
above the five acrylic slots
for brochures. Brunner
said that space would be
fitted with words and pic-
tures meant to drawpeople
downtown while they're
here and perhaps extend
their stay. TDC Chairman
Paul Donofro said he be-
lieves many travelers tend
to think that the interstate
corridor represents the
main body of Marianna,
and he believes Brunner's
plan will help remedy that
