It takes you twice the amount of energy to move around as that of your able-bodied friends, and yet you do it anyways. You may look more fragile than most but you are tough and you rior. They wont really see your strength. Today Jonzs journey, as his mother calls it, is on full display.

Once the business is in operation, the business plan can be used to monitor performance based on the expectations and assumptions of the plan. In this way it serves as a road map to help the owner verify that he is on the right track. The most successful start-ups I have seen far exceeded their business plan projections. The start-ups I have seen fail either did not have a solid business plan, or did not use it to monitor their performance and drive daily management decisions and adjustments as they moved forward.

Today she works with the Womens Center of Jacksonville, which counsels and supports victims of sexual assault and their families. Ms. Haynes spent about an hour with Mr. Yarick and Mr. Monahan at the Chamber of Commerce in downtown Macclenny the morning of October 4. I can access them anytime, she said. These guys really have their hand on the pulse of the resources that are out there. Mr. Monahan explained that everything small business owners share during their meetings with Mr. Yarick stays private. Both he and Mr. Yarick signed what he called a reverse non-disclosure agreement with Ms. Haynes that morning. He said the reasons small business owners, or those who hope to start small businesses, seek out advice vary widely. Some people just have a kernel of an idea for a business and we help explore that with them. Then there are other people who are already in business who are going, wait a minute, this isnt what I expected it to be. Pro or con. They might be expanding really rapidly or theyre just not moving as fast as they thought theyd be, said Mr. Monahan. The Florida Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at UNF targets businesses with $15 million or less in annual revenue. After that, Mr. Monahan said, they should tants. The center has served Baker County in some capacity for two decades, but we wanted to create more of a presence so we collaborated with the Chamber of Commerce to have a consultant available on a more consistent basis, added Mr. Yarick by email. He said he began accepting appoint ments on Thursdays in late August and has helped a handful of Baker County clients so far. He works exclusively in rural counties, but said Baker County is unique due to its close proximity to Jacksonville. On the other hand, Baker County is similar to other rural counties as far as the challenges of retail, mom-and-pop enterprises and the concentrated growth around the interstate, said Mr. Yarick. The passion that rural business owners, including those in Baker County, have for their communities is something else that makes them special. The most passionate and invested peo ple in the rural community are its business owners, Mr. Yarick said. They have taken the most risk, have the most at stake and have tied their personal success to the prosperity of the community. Asked about the most common pitfalls for small business owners, or aspiring ones, the consultant pointed to metrics. There is a Dutch proverb that says, Meten is Weten. It means measuring is knowing. In business we say know thy numbers, explained Mr. Yarick. The biggest mistake I see in business is that the owners are not ways joke about the person who takes a shoebox full of receipts and statements to his accountant at the end of the year, but I have met business owners who actually do important as marketing, management or any other aspect of doing business well. According to the Small Business Administration, only about one quarter of small businesses survive more than 15 years and being successful in the long-run is having a strong business plan and using it, Mr. Yarick said. The most successful start-ups I have seen far exceeded their business plan projections, he said. The start-ups I have seen fail either did not have a solid business plan, or did not use it to monitor their performance and drive daily management decisions and adjustments as they moved forward. For more information on the program, including about SBDC group workshops, please visit Cal the appointments with Mr. Yarick. those who see the video will have a new appreciation, not just of kids, but anyone When you see someone with arm crutches or any impairment you have a ten dency to feel sorry for them she said. The main point of the video is to show that he is like everybody else. The video also coincided with a T-shirt sale fund intensive physical therapy camp this summer at Believe Pediatric Physical Therapy in Winter Park, FL. Insurance doesnt cover it so a lot of families cant afford it, explained Mrs. Stenbeck. But she credits the intensive therapy with helping her son walk without the aid of crutches, which Jonz calls his go-go sticks. Jonz suffered nerve dam age that led to paralysis in his feet and lower legs. He learned to get around using a walker up until the sumthe Winter Park therapy facility. It was a three-week-long a day with only 15-minute breaks, said Mrs. Stenbeck. They basically worked him until he was able to walk. So he went to this therapy using his walker and left pretty much able to walk independently for the most part. She described the experience as the most miraculous and amazing thing you could ever see and it gives you a sense of hope. The one-week T-shirt fund raiser raised enough to pay the $2000 deposit required to continue the inWere so happy with the results, Mrs. Stenbeck said of the T-shirt drive, adding that with travel, lodging and other expenses, the whole experience is pretty costly. Jonz and his family including father Shayne and 1-year-old brother Ollis reside in Sanderson. He attends the PreK-K Center in ute therapy sessions weekly in Lake City. His mom said hes a big fan of superheroes and Spiderman in particular and he loves the beach. He doesnt like to swim a whole lot but I think he likes the freedom of it. The free dom to be in his own skin. I think thats what it is. He can play like every other kid can, said Mrs. Stenbeck. People often tell Jonz hes their hero, including Superintendent Raulerson last week, which may be why hes drawn to comic book characters. He does extraordinary things despite his disability, his mother said. Jonz is tough but also very social, which she thinks comes from his frequent interactions with medical professionals, and hes very much a typical boy who likes to get dirty and play with bugs.

He said the latest average wind speed forecast for Baker County was 40 mph hours earlier. I think tomorrow is going to be a rough day, he told commissioners. Were hoping because its mov ing pretty fast it will move through and Thursday wont be as intense. I think the fear is that people will say the storm is passed and all is good. He said weather ex perts are warning of torna dic activity that could last through Thursday evening. So we still want people to be vigilant all the way through Thursday, said Capt. Volz. City fire chief Buddy Dugger echoed those sentiments to county commissioners but reported that the storm had moved slightly to the west and was also downgraded in strength. Its still dangerous, said the chief, adding that some damage is expected to occur.

Shes already a part of our community, so welcome, said commissioner Jimmy Anderson. In another personnel-related matter last week, commissioners approved a new three-year deal with the union representing county road department employees. The only amendments to the union contract were to its personal leave policy. The accrual rates were increased slightly 1.1 more days a year for workers with days for 5-10 year workers, one-eighth of a day for 10-15 year workers and one-tenth of a day for those over 15 years. However, new language caps the total hours than can be accrued to 1000 hours, or 125 eight-hour days, and allows workers to request payouts of personal leave in eight-hour days, once a year at the end of November. For this year, employees can request the payouts for all leave time in excess of the 1000 maximum. There are a handful of employees would have more than the maximum today, but most department employees are close to it, said county human resources director Cathy Williams.

Page 8 T B C P ursday, October 11, 2018 This weeks column is just a random collection of whats running through my head. Today as I write this, it is Columbus Day, celebrating the European who discovered America. It is also Indigenous Peoples Day, since, well, there were already upwards of 10 million people living here when America was discovered. Considering that the Danes and the Chinese also claim to have discovered America, pretty soon our calendar is going to be so full of fake dates that there wont be anywhere to write day in October. Some of these holidays I can understand, but others to be told what to celebrate I would much rather have my suggestions. National Powdered Donut Day. Really, this is just as important a holiday as Arbor Day. I like trees, but those Sweet 16 powdered donuts I would rank that above Presidents Day. National Air Conditioning Day. This should be a state holiday if nothing else. If it wasnt for air conditioning, Florida would have the population of Wyoming. Thank you, Willis Carrier and Floridian John Gorrie, who are credited with inventing mechanical cooling. We all bow down degree August day with 100 percent humidity. Siris Birthday October 4. To a lot of people, Siri, the iPhone app, is more important than their congressman. I asked Siri about her birthday and she informed me, as she always does, Im told that only biological entities can have birthdays. I became operational on October 4, 2011. Walt Disneys birththe birthdays of historical important to kids growing up than Walt? I learned a lot of shaky historical facts from watching Disney cartoons. How else would I have known that Pocahontas talked to a big tree and had a pet raccoon? Thats able as Washingtons cherry tree and wooden teeth. Growing up I learned to watch the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite. watching George Winterling on Channel 4, we set tled in with our dinner and watched Uncle Walter tell us about what was going on in the world. He wasnt my uncle, he just seemed that way. Though Im sure he leaned one way or the other politically, no one not even presidents dared claim that Uncle Walt was fake news. One thing I did notice about the news when I was a kid was that commercials on the news were not pointed at my 8-year-old self. The demographics were for much older viewers and advertised Cadillacs, Centrum Silver vitamins and Geritol. Over the years, that has changed some, but mainly stayed the same. CBS and you will see ads for Xarelto, Cialis, heart medication, blood pressure meds, ads for arthritis medication with a list of den death and Audis and Mercedes Benz motor cars. You get the feeling that much of the viewing audience is going to pass out at any moment and be driven to the hospital in foreign luxury cars. Nowadays, social media will comment on just about anything. Currently they are obsessed about Melania Trumps wardrobe for her trip to Africa. They threw shade at her for looking too colonial. I like Melania Trump. I feel sorry for her and she seems to be doing the best she can despite all the negative publicity about her marriage. I also liked her colonial with the pith hel met she wore, but it also had an Indiana Jones vibe. Besides, if you left it up to social media who they would want for First Lady, the list would probably look like this: Beyonce, Me gan Markle, Taylor Swift, Joanna Gaines. President Trump would probably be happy with that list. Doris Kerns Goodwin, a noted historian, did an interesting piece on Sunday Morning on CBS in which she looked at the current political divide in the U.S. from an historical perspec tive. She claimed we arent even close to this being the most divided the country has ever been. Abraham Lincoln had to disguise himself as his train rolled through Confederate sympathizing Baltimore on his way from Illinois to his inauguration. Teddy Roosevelt led a country so divided between the super rich and terribly poor that there was talk of revolution. FDR was faced with chronic unemployment and famine during the Great Depression. He was accused of being a Socialist and a Communist by many of the papers at the time. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson took on a segregated South where 25 percent of the population couldnt use the same restrooms as whites, ride in the front of buses, attend the same schools or sit with whites at a lunch counter. They were often stopped from voting by restrictive Jim Crow laws. Its bad, and you cant close your eyes to that, but its nice to know that weve pushed our way through in the past. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD More fake holidays to add to calendarDear Editor: The Democrats have sunk even further into the sewer! They have shown that they would stop at nothing in of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, including character assassination. Morals, integrity, justice are words unfamiliar in this era to the Democrat Party. Their mission is to destroy any and all conservative thinkers and its a necessary collateral damage if their entire family is destroyed in the process. Twenty-seven years ago the Democrats attempted the same slimy tactics against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Judge Thomas, a black man who dared to identify as a conservative, endured a ferocious character assassination by the Democrat Senators and when that failed to brought in an eleventh hour ringer (Anita Hill) to attempt to impugn his character. Democrats attempted the same tactics with Judge Kavanaugh. They brought in a liberal college professor from California making allegations from thirty-seven years ago. Problem is, there were no witnesses, no evidence and she cant remember what party, what house or even when it happened. For those who didnt see Judge Thomas smack down the Democrat Senators, the following is a powerful excerpt that probably persuaded the Democrats who still had any sense of This is a circus. It is a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as black American, as far as I am concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to ideas, and it is a message that, unless you kow-tow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S Senate, rather than hung from a tree. The Democrat Party has a long history of this ruthless behavior pre-dat ing the Civil War, but thats for another letter.David Jackson MacclennyDear Editor: I would like to thank all of the people who prayed for me during my illness of H1N1 in January. I beg you the complications of ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome), which I actually went into respiratory failure. Only God, much prayer, ECMO and the ECMO team saved my life. They called me a medical miracle. God heals! I am very grateful I baby. I would like to thank Dr. Derrick Carter and Debbie Cole for blessing me so abundantly. It will never be forgotten. Thank you to all who visited me during the seven weeks. My home church of Sanderson Congregation Holiness, Christian Fellowship Temple, my mom and dads home church and all the other churches that prayed for me. Thank you to my sister for visiting me before and after work and sometimes at lunch. Thanks to all who drove my mom and dad to the hospital. Thanks to my cousins and sister for the talks about the Lord. It uplifted me so much. Thank you to my son and my nieces for making all the hard decisions.LaDonna Sherlene Johnson Macclenny (Ms. Johnson was the focus of last weeks article on Dear Editor: protect all the members within my community and correct injustice when I see it. This job is not one I take lightly. I am proud to help ensure those convicted of a crime are treated fairly within our legal system. However, there is one party that is not treated fairly: the victim. I believe it is a wrong that must be amended. Everyone, regardless of their role in a legal case, deserves the right to fair treatment. But currently, there is no provision in Floridas constitution that requires courts to inform victims about their cases or gives those victims a voice, and those are just two examples of the numerous rights victims lack. Crime victims should have the same protections the defendants receive, nothing more and nothing less. Fortunately, we have a solution that would work for all parties in the justice system. Amendment 6, or Marsys Law, proposes a clear set of rights for victims that will be included in our states constitution, accused. I think we can all agree crime victims deserve fair treatment, too. Justice is the greatest way we can show cannot claim to act fairly without ensuring that individuals on both sides are protected. I urge everyone to vote for Amendment 6 this election cycle and help maintain equality within the justice system.
