WASHINGTON — After just under one year on the job, Parks D. Shackelford has resigned as president of the American Textile Manufacturers Institute to take another job to lobby for a U.S. sugar company.
“I had planned to stay longer,” Shackelford said Thursday of his brief tenure at the textile association. “I was made an offer I couldn’t refuse,” he said of his new employer, Florida Crystals Corp., one of the largest U.S. sugar producers and owned by the Fanjul family.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
