                 G. Effective Date means November 14, 1997.

                 H. [Intentionally Left Blank]

                 I.  Initial Term means the period  beginning  on the  Effective
Date and ending on the date which is twelve (12) months  following the Effective
Date.

                 J. Permanent  Disability  means a physical or mental  condition
which renders Employee  incapable of performing his regular duties hereunder for
a period of one  hundred  twenty  (120)  consecutive  days.  In the event of any
disagreement  between  Employee  and  the  Company  as to  whether  Employee  is
suffering from Permanent  Disability,  the determination of Employee's Permanent
Disability  shall be made by one or more  board  certified  licensed  physicians
practicing  the  specialty  of medicine  applicable  to  Employee's  disorder in
accordance  with the  provisions of this  Subsection J. If either the Company or
Employee desires to initiate the procedure provided in this Section,  such party
(the  "Initiating  Party") shall deliver  written notice to the other party (the
"Responding  Party")  in  accordance  with  the  provisions  of  this  Agreement
specifying  that  the  Initiating  Party  desires  to  proceed  with  a  medical
examination  and the  procedures  specified in this  Section.  Such notice shall
include the name,  address and telephone number of the physician selected by the

<PAGE>

fails within  thirty (30) days after the receipt of the  Disability  Examination
Notice to designate a physician  meeting the  standards  specified  herein,  the
physician  designated  by the  Initiating  Party in the  Disability  Examination
Notice shall make the determination of Permanent  Disability as provided in this
Section. If the Responding Party by written notice notifies the Initiating Party
within thirty (30) days of the receipt by the Responding Party of the Disability
Examination Notice by notice specifying the physician selected by the Responding
Party  for  purposes  of this  Section,  then each of the two  physicians  as so
designated by the respective  parties shall each examine Employee.  Examinations
shall be made by each such physician within thirty (30) days of such physician's
respective  designation.  Each  physician  shall  render a written  report as to
whether  Employee  is,  in  such  physician's   opinion,   suffering   Permanent
Disability.  If the two physicians  agree on the status of Employee for purposes
of this Section,  such determination shall be conclusive and dispositive for all
purposes of this Section. If the two physicians cannot agree, the two physicians
shall jointly select a third physician  meeting the standards  specified in this
Section  within thirty (30) days after the later report of the two physicians is
submitted.  The third  physician  shall render a written report on the status of
Employee  within  thirty  (30)  days of  selection  and  such  report  shall  be
dispositive  for purposes of this  Section.  For purposes of this  Subsection J,
Employee agrees that he shall promptly submit to such  examinations and tests as
such physicians shall reasonably  request for purposes of making a determination
of Permanent Disability as provided herein. Failure or refusal of the Company to
designate a licensed  physician to make a determination of Permanent  Disability
as  required  in  accordance  with this  Section or of Employee to submit to the
examination as required by this Section shall constitute a conclusive  admission
by the Company or Employee,  as  appropriate,  that Employee is suffering from a
Permanent Disability as provided herein.

Subsection 2J; and (f) with respect to Constructive Termination,  the date which

employment  relationship  of Employee with the Company  during the Term which is

electing  not to renew  this  Agreement  at the end of the  Initial  Term or any
Renewal Term which ends prior to Employee  reaching the age of  sixty-five  (65)
years.
                    (ii) Any  relocation of Employee by the Company,  not agreed

Employee of his employment  with the Company prior to the end of the Term and in
the absence of a Triggering  Event,  or as a result of Employee  electing not to
renew this Agreement at the end of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term.  Notice
by  Employee  to  the  Company  of a  failure  by the  Company  to  fulfill  its
obligations  under this Agreement  pursuant to Section 2F shall not constitute a
Voluntary Termination for purposes of this Agreement.

              3. Employment. The Company, through its Board of Directors, agrees
to  employ  Employee  in the  office  of Vice  President,  Controller  and Chief

Company may promote or elevate  Employee to higher  offices or  positions in the
Company.

              4.  Responsibilities.  Pursuant to this Agreement,  Employee shall
assume the responsibilities, perform the duties, and exercise the powers as Vice

                                       6

charitable and professional  activities,  from trading,  for his own account and
benefit, in stocks, bonds, securities,  real estate, commodities, or other forms
of investments. Employee agrees to comply with the Company's policies, rules and
regulations as determined by the Chief Executive Officer or Board of Directors.

Company, but in no event less frequently than monthly.

                 B.  Bonuses.  During the Term,  Employee  shall be  entitled to
participate in the Company's quarterly salaried employee bonus program, pursuant
to which Employee  shall be eligible to receive  bonuses of up to twenty percent
(20%) of Base Salary.  Fifty percent (50%) of such bonus shall be  discretionary

the  achievement  of  corporate  earnings  goals as set by the  Chief  Executive
Officer and Chief Financial Officer; provided, however, Employee shall receive a
guaranteed bonus of not less than Three Thousand and No/100 Dollars  ($3,000.00)
per quarter. During the Term, Employee shall be entitled to participate in other

under this Section 5 to pay to Employee  for the balance of the Term  Employee's
then Base Salary pursuant to Subsection 5A.

                    (ii) For  purposes  of this  Agreement,  the term  Severance

connection with a Change of Control) occurs within one hundred eighty (180) days
prior or subsequent to the date of a Change of Control, or is in any way related
to, results from,  arises out of, or is in connection  with a Change of Control,
the Severance  Amount shall be an amount equal to one and one half (1 1/2) times
Employee's  Base Salary;  or (c) if a Triggering  Event  otherwise  occurs,  the
Severance  Amount  shall be an  amount  equal to one (1) times  Employee's  Base
Salary.

                    (iii)  If the  Severance  Amount  payable  pursuant  to this
Section is an amount equal to one and  one-half (1 1/2)  times  Employee's  Base
Salary,  then the Severance  Amount shall be paid within thirty (30) days of the

<PAGE>

to this Section  shall be paid over the twelve (12) month period  following  the
Triggering Event according to the Company's  payroll practices and procedures in
effect at the time of the Triggering Event.

                    (iv) Upon the occurrence of a Triggering  Event, any and all
stock options to purchase shares of the Company's Common Stock which are held by
Employee  shall  become  one  hundred  percent  (100%)  vested  and  immediately
exercisable as of the date of such Triggering Event, and shall be exercisable by
the  Employee  over the balance of the  remaining  stated term of any such stock
options (which term shall be the term  applicable to the Employee in the absence
of termination of employment),  notwithstanding  any provision  contained in the
stock option agreement to the contrary.

                    (v) [Intentionally Left Blank]

                    (vi) Any  controversy or claim arising out of or relating to
whether termination of Employee's employment is due to a Triggering Event, or is
a  Termination   With  Cause,  a  Termination   Without  Cause,  a  Constructive
Termination or a Voluntary  Termination as provided herein,  shall be settled by
arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules ("Rules") of the
American Arbitration  Association  ("AAA").  Arbitration shall be initiated by a
party by giving  notice in the manner set forth herein to the other party of its
intention to arbitrate, which notice shall contain a statement setting forth the
nature of the dispute,  the amount claimed,  if any, and the remedy sought.  The
initiating  party  shall  then file a copy or copies of the  notice as set forth
under the Rules. Dothan,  Alabama shall be the location where the arbitration is
held.  The  parties  shall  agree  upon and  appoint  three (3)  arbitrators  in
accordance  with the Rules  within  thirty  (30) days of the  effective  date of
notice of  arbitration;  however,  if the parties fail to make such  designation
within thirty (30) days, the AAA shall make the appointment.  The determinations
of  such  arbitrators  will  be  final  and  binding  upon  the  parties  to the
arbitration,  and judgment  upon the award  rendered by the  arbitrators  may be
entered in any such court having  jurisdiction,  or  application  may be made to
such court for a judicial  acceptance of the award and an order of  enforcement,
as the case may be. The arbitrators shall apply the laws of the State of Alabama
as to both substantive and procedural questions.

                 D. Car Allowance.  The Company shall pay Employee a monthly car
allowance  payable monthly in advance in accordance with customary  practices of
the  Company of not less than Five  Hundred  and No/100  Dollars  ($500.00)  per

                 E. Insurance and Benefits.

                    (i) Employee  shall be entitled to participate in or receive
benefits  under all employee and  executive  benefit plans or  arrangements  and
perquisites of employment,  including, without limitation, plans or arrangements
providing for health and disability  insurance coverage,  life insurance for the
benefit of Employee's beneficiaries, deferred compensation and pension benefits,
and  personal  financial,  investment,  legal or tax advice,  all at the highest
level that is available through the Company to other peer executive  officers of
the Company subject to the same terms and conditions as apply to such other peer
executive officers.

                    (ii) Employee  shall be entitled to all holidays  recognized
by the Company and paid  vacation  time in  accordance  with the most  favorable
plans, policies, programs and practices of the Company as in effect for Employee
at any  time  during  the  ninety  (90) day  period  immediately  preceding  the
