Pharmacist Danny Cottrell of Brewton (pop. 5,498) created his own economic stimulus plan earlier this year by giving his full-time employees $700 and his part-time employees $300. He asked them to donate 15 percent to charity and to spend the rest locally. Cottrell paid the $16,000 in $2 bills so people in Escambia County (pop. 38,440) could track the dollars.
