Dolan is

hired as


fire chief

Press Staff
After nearly 12 years, Richard
Dolan is no longer the part-time
Baker County fire chief.
He's now the full-time chief in
charge of the county's 71 volunteer
firefighters working in eight sta-
The Baker County Commission
voted unanimously at Monday's
board meeting to upgrade his sta-
tus. The county budget allots a
$40,000 salary for the position.
Chief Dolan, who has held the
position since June 1994, found
himself in the middle of some con-
troversy a couple months ago.
There was confusion over new
state training and certification re-
quirements that led to a number of
volunteers being dropped.
Referring to the "trials and tribu-
lations of the last couple of
months," Chief Dolan asked the
commission this week for a "clear
confirmation" of his status.
"I was in an unknown state." he
said Tuesday. "I didn't know how
they felt."
Immediately before the vote,
Commissioner Gordon Crews
spoke in support of Chief Dolan
"I've thought long and hard re-
garding this. I think Richard is do-
-ing a good job. My hope is that he
can devote undivided attention to
this department, which will be so
vital in the next ten years with the
growth that we're already experi-
After the vote, Chief Dolan
thanked the commissioners and
said, "I look forward to the chal-
lenge of taking this department to
the next level."
Prior to signing on as the part-
time chief, he'd worked two years
as a volunteer for the Macclenny
Fire Department. Before that he
worked in the Arlington area of
Jacksonville. where he was vice-
president of the city's volunteer
firefighters' association.
Chief Dolan said he plans no
major changes in how he runs
"We'll stay on the course we've
been following to improve the de-

ture and the possibility of future
Chief Dolan's full-time job until
this week was an officer with the
Department of Corrections.
In other action at Monday's
meeting, the commission rejected a
land-use and zoning change re-
quested by Susan Bennett. who
wants to build a fence manufactur-
ing and storage building on one
acre of her property on Mudlake
Road and Sunshine Lane.
County staff recommended the
request be denied because it would
not be consistent with surrounding
zoning, which is residential and
Ms. Bennett wanted her property
rezoned to light industrial.
Several neighbors spoke against
the proposed business, citing con-
cerns about noise and traffic.

Loves dairy 'lifestyle'

Press Publisher
The cows don't know when it's Christmas morning, or your wife's
birthday and your child's birthday.
So goes a time-honored saying among dairymen a saying they be-

of sophisticated veteri-
nary science, more pro-

In northeast Florida
where 50 or so family-
run dairies once flour- q

dairies still in existence.
One of them is the
168-acre D&D Dairy,
owned by Darryl and Daneitte Register of Glen St. Mary.
Located off Smokey Road near Interstate 10, the operation milks
500 or so cows twice a day, every day even Christmas and Easter.
Even on birthdays and anniversaries.
Even when the remnants of hurricanes howl through Baker County,
the cows are out there seemingly oblivious to what's going on

The owner of a Glen St. Mary
plumbing company was sworn in
Tuesday night as the town's newest
council member.
Morris (Dickie) Foster was one
of three candidates for the vacancy
created when former councilman
Larry Payne resigned February 14.
Others seeking the seat were
Roger Harvey, a long-time school
district employee, and Steve
Rhynehardt, who has worked for
the Department of Corrections and
the US Navy.
Mayor Juanice Padgett provided
councilmen with copies of the three
letters of application prior to the
meeting, then 'opened the floor for

There's but a few things milk cows care about, and feeding and
milking times are right up there on the top.
"Cows are creatures of habit. Don't mess with their milking times,"
advises Mr. Register.
"Anything you do to mess up their routine affects milk production.
I'd say the easier they have it, the nicer they are to you."

"That was an extremely ugly time for milk prices," he recalls. "Af-

sumed in this country is through food services like restaurants, prices

Press Staff
Baker County commissioners
voted 4-1 to pay a Wellington, Fla.
firm $18,500 to conduct a search
for the next county manager.
In dissent, Commissioner Fred
Raulerson argued that a statewide
search would send a message that
there are no worthy local candi-
Other commissioners noted that
a statewide search would by defini-
tion include Baker County., but
everyone agreed to direct the firm
to advertise locally.
The county has been without a
manager since the board fired Ja-
son Griffis December 15 for a se-
ries of transgressions capped by his
use of a county phone to make hun-
dreds of personal calls.
At a workshop Monday after-
noon, Colin Baenziger made a pfe-
sentation to the board, outlining his
company's meticulous process for
collecting and culling candidates.
He said all but one of the clients
of his nine-year-old firm, Colin
Baenziger & Associates. have been
in Florida, but the fihm recruits na-
tionally. Since last May, it has con-
tracted with 18 cities or counties in
the state, including Clay and Nas-
sau counties.
Commissioner Julie Combs.
however, rejected a national search,
suggesting it be limited to the state
in order to save money on advertis-
ing and moving expenses. She also
said a Floridian would be familiar
with growth issues specific to the
Her colleagues agreed, so the
job will be advertised only in Flor-
Mr. Baenziger, who will do the
search personally, said his compa-
ny has conducted a survey of coun-
ty managers in Florida and will ad-
vise commissioners on the salary
and benefits necessary to attract
good candidates.
"I'll meet with you and any oth-
ers you want us to in order to get to
know Baker County, what makes it
tick, the issues, what kind of person
is best and how much you want to
pay," he said.
The firm will seek applicants,
narrow the field and conduct sever-
al types of background checks, ihn-
cluding Internet research and,
pulling credit reports.
Mr. Baenziger estimated the ap-
plication process would take about-
45 days.
He will choose about eight qual-
ified candidates, then sit down indi-
vidually with the commissioners to
discuss each one. He'll provide
them with a "notebook on inter-
viewing" that will be two or three
inches thick, including resumes, his
notes from interviews with the can-
didates and a schedule for the com-
missioners to meet with them.
Board members will then have a
week to review the material and
vote for five finalists.
He then suggests an "interview
weekend," where the board and the
finalists meet.
"In this business, sometimes you
don't really know what you want
until you see it," he said.
The weekend would kick off
with a reception that would include
community leaders.
"It's important to see them in a
social setting," he said, noting that
a large part of a manager's job is
representing the county at similar
functions, for instance, Chamber of

Commerce mixers and Rotary Club

The Joint City County Commit-
tee of Service Providers is the ten
dollar name for a collection of local
government agencies attempting to
figure out how we're going, to pay
for the demands on the public purse
caused by growth.
An excellent cause, the brain-
child of Macclenny Commissioner
Phil Rhoden, and the first gathering
took place last week with less than
impressive attendance.
Of the 15 agencies invited to the
organizational session 11 were no-
shows. Granted, there's some cross-
over responsibility areas, but the
poor turnout portended a rocky
start for what could at the very least
serve as a think tank. ,
The Baker County school dis-
trict was over-represented. Sup-
erintendent Paula Barton brought
her finance and facilities chiefs.
Since schools have so much at
stake when it comes to meeting
growth needs; perhaps that was ap-
propriate.- a ,3 ,, 0 o":,
The City of Macclenny was rep-
resented by its manager and, of

So there )ou have it.
Regardless of \ ho attended, the
same topics likely would have been
discussed, centered all of them on
the high cost of infrastructure and
the now-stringent requirements set
by the state of Florida.
So many agencies have their fin-
gers in the growth pie that it's
impossible to do anything of sub-
stance without a myriad of permits.
The state is also requiring vol-
umes of information from counties
dealing with growth plans and land
use regulations, putting huge bur-

dens on building departments.
The business of growth will be
closing in on us in the next few
years, perhaps not on as great a scale
as our neighbors irt Duval, Clay, St.
Johns and Nassau counties.
The effusion of government-
owned land in Baker County limits
the available space, but the imme-
diacy of the crush resulting from
sparsity of land in neighboring
counties, relatively lower land
prices and other dynamics suggest
we have to be ahead of events to do
this right.
It'd help if other agencies invit-
ed to participate in the committee
had a presence at its next meeting.

Two Convicts Attack Guard
A. E. Green, Division Inspector and General Supt. of Surfacing Equip-
ment for 15 counties, for the State Road Dept., was in town Saturday and
paid the Press office a pleasant call.
Mr. Green had just returned from Spuds where he had been called on
account of two prisoners attacking a guard with a spade and knocking him
down and making an effort to take his gun and pistol. They were frustrated
however, by two other convicts who took the guard's part and with the
help of another guard, captured one of them. The other made his escape.
Mr. Green says the two men making the attack were desperate criminals
and it was their intention, if they secured the weapons, to kill the guards
and make a general delivery from the road camp. It was only by the efforts
and quick action of the two other convicts, that they did not succeed. Mr.
Green says that these two men will be recommended for pardon and they
deserve it.
Mr. Green is a native son of Baker County, son of the late A. J. Green
of Sanderson and has made a wonderful advancement with the Road Dept.
during the ears since he has been in their employ. We congratulate him and

Vandalism at Boy Scout Camp
During the past 60 days there has been much van-
dalism at the Boy Scout camp on the river. Troop 159
has been camping on two occasions during the past six-
ty days, prior to their first camping trip this year, the
door to the cabin was torn from its hinges, broken
whiskey bottles found on the floor and in the ice box
and the boys mattresses were cut up and otherwise de-
Between that trip and the last, the cabin had again
been entered and the door again torn down, and the
vandals proceeded to shoot 16 window panes out as
well as riddle the roof with 45 shots.
We are reasonably sure of the names of two parties
who are responsible for this disgrace, unfortunately we
lack witnesses, and it is deplorable to have to say that
people from Macclenny who saw certain parties being
held in the cabin, have neither the interest or which is
more to the point, the decency and "intestinal forti-
tude" to come out and make this public.
The sooner the citizens of this county start to take
pride and interest in her youth, the sooner we will have
a town and county where vandals and crooks cannot

Of course, many groups that

successfully because they follow
the rules, respect the property and

now the current rash of noise and
destruction has made the members
of the Women's Club wary of rent-

legitimate clients who genuinely
need the use of the property for
personal and civic events.
In the past, the club rented the
building in good faith. What a

Fed.by gusting 40 mile per hour winds, the most de-
structive forest fire here in recent memory swept along
a two mile path west and northwest of Glen St. Mary
Monday afternoon scorching 650 acres of young pine
On Tuesday, the Florida Division of Forestry sent an
investigator into the area since authorities are virtually
certain the fire was deliberately set. Preliminary esti-
mates are that 60 percent of the young trees are now
unharvestable at a loss of at least $200,000.
The land belongs to Southern Resin 'and Chemical
of Glen. Manager Ed Doss said the majority of trees
were on nine and ten year old plantations. No struc-
tures were destroyed, although some farms northwest
of Glen would have been in extreme danger had it not
been for an area that had been control burned last
month, thus creating a halting point near CR 139B.
The, weather service reported gusts between 30-40
miles per hour in many parts of the Southeast Monday,
a contributing factor in heavy woodland fire losses in
several states, including Alabama, Georgia, Florida and
the Carolinas.
Southern Resin was first alerted here about 11:30
am. It appears the fire was set at several places along
Hamp Register Road, and fanned by gusts. It was al-
ready engulfing a large area when equipment arrived.
The owners were assisted by DOF and three other large
timberland owners. It took five hours to control the
fire, and DOF declared it out at 7:00 that evening.
DOF was still allowing control and yard burning at
mid-week but urging extreme caution. Permission to
burn can be obtained by calling 259-2661.

The new "Good News" paper in
town carried a tidbit a couple of
weeks ago: "I couldn't repair your
brakes, so I made your horn loud-
We laugh because we know
how utterly ridiculous that would
be. None of us would accept that
trade off with our cars. We would
be looking for a new mechanic,
Yet we are often willing to
accept a similar reality in our lives
without thinking twice. We have
no brakes so we make our horn
louder. I'm referring to those of us
who don't control our impulses.
We are an indebted nation for a
variety of reasons, but one big one
is the combined credit card debt of
so many Americans. We don't ;
have the money, but it doesn't
matter, we want it, sometimes we :,
need it, and we have plastic.
When :people from other
nations are able to buy our land,
companies, and debt because they
know how to sacrifice, resist the
desire to:live greater than their
means, and save until they have
cash to pay for something income
producing, we complain loudly.
We blow our horn rather than
apply our brakes.
We are an overweight nation.
Again there are a variety of rea-
sons, but mostly we are unwilling
to curb our appetites. It isn't just
the unhealthy foods we consume
in mass quantities; it is the
unhealthy decisions we make on a
We refuse to brake our orders
for Biggie Fries, Biggie Drinks,
Biggie Burgers, Biggie Pizzas; we
don't brake our sitting habits in
front of TVs, computers, and
video games; we don't brake our
work hours and stress levels; we
don't brake the desire to park close
and walk less. Instead we com-
plain and make excuses; we blow
our horn loudly, but do nothing
about repairing our brakes.
There are so many areas in
which we have inadequate brakes.
We are a consuming nation. So
many have voracious appetites for
possessions, sex, and highs, and
rather than teaching people to
apply the brakes, society's answer
tells, "Take this pill and eat all you
want." "Buy this product and we
will finance." "Why wait? You can
have it all now if you just fill out
this loan application."
We blow our horn loudly
because individuals from other
nations have gained so much
power in our country, but the truth
is if we would stop blowing, and
fix our brakes we would be in a
position to reclaim the power.
One further note: Do you know
someone who complains a lot,
who is always blowing their horn?
Then steer clear, they have no
brakes, and we all know how dan-
gerous that can be!

'Read that!' said the Cat in the Hat

Press Staff
The birthday of Dr. Seuss,
world renowned author and illus-
trator of children's books, was
March 2nd.
Bonnie Jones, reading coach
and tutor at the PreK-Kindergarten
Center, was inspired to use the
anniversary of the author's birth-
day as. a focus for classroom in-
Ms. Jones, who is also The 2006
Baker County District Teacher of
the Year, arrived for class that day
dressed as The Cat in the Hat, prob-
ably Seuss's most famous character.
Her costume included whiskers, tall
red and white hat and long feline
The "Cat" was accompanied by
other Seuss characters, Thing One
(teaching assistant Lettie Crews)
and Thing Two (teaching assistant
Tammy Brownlee) who delighted
the children in their matching
bright orange suits and bright blue
Thing One and Thing Two used
grease pencils to decorate the stu-
dent's faces with. cat noses and
The students participated as
well in dressing the part as they
donned the floppy cloth cat hats.
Paper cat hats were also made by
many of the children.
The day's reading lessons fo-
cused on learning word families,
which are groups of words that
rhyme. Rhyme is a simple but',
powerful tool in the teaching of
language instruction, and is enjoy-.
able for children.

An. example of a word family:
hat, cat, at, bat, sat, that, gnat, rat.
Rhyme, similarity of spelling and
repetition make it easy for children
to learn to recognize words and
assimilate them into sentences:
An example of a word family
used in sentences would be:
a cat wore a hat.
and a rat swung a bat

then they both sat
and that was that
Dr. Seuss (real name Theodor
Geisel), who utilized word fami-
lies constantly in his work, began
his writing career for children after
reading an article in a 1954 issue
of Life Magazine concerned with
the illiteracy levels of children in
the United States. The number one

reason for children's low reading
levels, according to.the article, was
that reading was not fun.
Seuss's publisher challenged
him to write a fun children's book,
using only 220 words.
The Cat in the Hat was the re-
sult. Seuss' extensive collection of
books remains one of the most uti-
lized sources of children's reading

Kites in the sky over Westside

Press Staff
It's a breezy March morning at
Westside Elementary. The sky is
blue and filled with fast moving
clouds what Winnie The .Pooh
would have called a "blustery day."
And just as Winnie The Pooh
knew, the students at Westside also
know that this is perfect weather
for fl) ing kites.
Kite Day is an annual event at
the Glen St. Mary school and was
started more then ten years ago by
Michele Yaracs, the head of the.,
physical education department.
Yaracs and her assistant Katie
Rhoden plan and coordinate the
day for flying kites and hold the
event with the help of the school's
resource teachers.
"Parents are a big part of Kite
Day," said Ms. Yaracs as she looks
around the busy field while grown
ups help children hoist kites into
the breeze and assist with untan-
gling knotted string. Yaracs herself

plastic streamers which she doles.
out if a kite looses its tail.
She attaches a handful of the
streamers to a tail-less kite as a
child excitedly waits.
"O.K.!" she says. "You're ready
to launch!
A delighted child takes off,
squealing with excitement as the
kite climbs.
Students bring their own kites
for the event, but teachers have
some extra ones on hand just in
case someone forgets.
As many as five classes file onto
the field east of the school at once.
Kites of every shape, color and
description fill the air. A huge kite,

Runs off with beer
Deputies searched a neighbor-
hood off West Boulevard in Mac-
clenny early on March 14 shortly
after a suspect ran off with two 12-
packs of beer from the BP station
and convenience store on US 90.
The store clerk said a white
male entered the store about 3:25
and went to the beer cooler, then
hurriedly exited while a female
companion held the front door
open for him.
Moments earlier the clerk un-
locked the door from her protected
area to let the two suspects in. She
had locked it while cleaning the
floor, a policy at the all-night
She told the police the two ran
north on Boulevard.
In other thefts reported to the
sheriff's department the past week,
a boat and trailer valued at $500
were taken from a barn outside the
residence of Don White off Bob
Kirkland Road overnight on
March 16.

Participating in Kite Day is
especially meaningful for Charlie,
who at age 7, has survived multi-

says Yaracs. "They love doing

NCAA Toumey lives up to 'March Madness billing

Gators head north after wins in Jax

I've been glued to the televi-
sion set this weekend watching
the NCAA basketball champi-
onship tournament. I love March
Madness because it so easily fits
that trite: label. It really is. quite
unlike any other sporting event
across the world.
The Super Bowl and the World
Cup have bigger audiences, but
nothing quite matches the fervor
of NCAA playoffs. It's estimated
that across the US, $3 billion in
productivity will be lost over the
three weeks of the tournament
due to workers checking brackets
and e-mailing co-workers.and fid-
dling with pools.
I'm not doing any of that, but I
am pretty rabid about watching
the playoffs, and my wife, who is
a tremendous basketball fan is
even more so. She was particular-
ly vocal when her beloved Gators
were playing.
"Look at those empty seats,"
she yelled, scowling. "I could
have been there. I can't believe
there are empty seats. Why aren't
I there?"
There were indeed empty seats
in the Veterans Memorial Arena in
Jacksonville for both the games in
which the Gators took,part. I find
that hard to believe. I'd have been
there if I my drama production
wasn't running at the high school.
The Gators won a tight one
against South Alabama and a
much easier game against Wis-
consin-Milwaukee. They domi-

nated the paint in both games and'
Joakim Noah was outstanding in
all aspects of the game rebound-
ing, scoring, blocking shots and
passing. He was the most domi-
nant player on the court.
The rest of the Gators were no
slouches, either. They will travel
to Minneapolis this week to face
Georgetown. 1I am a fan of the

and the SEC in the number of
schools still in contention. Who'd
have figured that?
Well, the guys who made the
selection of the 65 teams' and got
so much heat for it. They must.
have been smugly smiling as the
games played out in the early
rounds. It's clear that they knew a
lot more about what they were do-
ing than I did.
So, who will advance to the
Elite Eight'?
I'd go with LSU in a squeaker
over Duke. They have the size
and Duke hasn't been that domi-

powerful team left in the tourney
should defeat Washington.
I'm hoping West Virginia beats
Texas for the sake of Press pub-
lisher Jim McGauley, whose
brother-in-law, is the Mountaineer
coach. But think the Horns will
pull it out.
But who really knows? That's
what's so much fun about all this.

Noah's reputation is on upward arc

I'm such an expert on college
basketball that I've been able to
avoid winning any NCAA tourna- MIcham
ment pool since 1986. It hasn't
been easy; you'd think by random Spor
chance one of the several pools I'
play each year would fall my way. Nonetheless, I'm
crazy about the game and spent four days last week in
a hoop stupor watching the nation's best sports event
unfold in all its bracket-busting glory.
I didn't see every single game'- I missed a few.
while at the Gators' game Thursday -: but w watched at
least parts of most. So from that perspecti ke, here are
some random obser' nations from the Big Dance.
Best player
Florida's Joakim Noah. Nobody can match hisJ
combination of height, agility,. court sense, defense,.
shooting. rebounding, passing, ball handling and ,es,
despite his brittle appearance, his toughness. Nation-
all., people are taking notice.
Most impressive team
Te\as. The Longhorns' first si\ are pla ing out-
standing ball. Only UConn can match them player for
7pla.er, but the. Huskies can go deeper. You can also
throw LUCLA into the mi\. but the few times I saw% the
Bruins this \ear they showed some inconsistency.
Best announcer
.As a former college player and coach. Bill Rafters
knows the game and is fun to listen to. He's been a fa-
'orite of mine for years, so I'll stick with him al-
though he sometimes o\erplays his signature lines.
Jay Bilas and Len Elmore are also at the top.
Worst announcer
Billy Packer's Mr. Kno%%-It-All'attitude rubs me
the %wrong wa\. That's %h. it w\as such a pleasure to
see him 'fall flat on his face \with his pre-tournament
criticism of the selection committee for in% iting too

teen. At least one will advance to the next round and

Current trendy pick
Memphis, but check back in an hour, it might be
the Gators.
Easiest path to the championship game
UConn. They need only beat Washington, then ei-
ther George Mason or Wichita State to get into the Fi-
nal Four, where they'll play Villanova or George-
town, both of whom they've beaten, or a still-too-
young Florida team, or Boston College.
Toughest path to the championship game
Villanova, who plays Boston College, then either
Georgetown or Florida. then probably Connecticut.
Most forgotten team
Vest Virginia. Last year's Cinderella is this year's
plain Jane.
Coolest team to watch
Villanota. Throughout the,season, I kept waiting
for that four-guard offense to flame out. It's an ex-
hausting, exciting, push-it-to-the-limit game plan. I
still don't understand how% it works, especially against
big front lines, but %when the Wildcats beat Connecti-
cut last month, I became a believer. A couple of
weeks later, however, the Huskies stomped the Cats.

Losses are piling up for lady Cats

Press Sports
After a 6-3 loss to visiting
Suwannee County Tuesday night,
the Wildcats girls softball team
has fallen to 2-11 on the season.
Details were not available at
press time.
The Lady Cats have lost five
straight and seven of their last
They also remain winless in
eight home games this season. In
fact, their five-game losing streak,
is'all h6me games.
It seems the Cats are coming
up a little short in just about every
area of the game.
Against the Bulldogs, they
were unable to generate any runs
through five innings, falling be-
hind 6-0. The last couple of runs
came in the top of the sixth
thanks to some indifferent de-
In the bottom of the inning,
however, their bats came alive as
they scored three runs with two
outs. With two runners on and the
tying run at the plate, a timely hit
would have put them right back in
the game, but it didn't happen.
In the top of the seventh, pitch-
er Tiffany Smith loaded the bases
with two outs. The next Bulldog
batter smacked a line drive to
center that looked like trouble un-
til Kassie Crews made a diving
catch to end the inning.
In the bottom of the seventh,
Brittany Hansen got a two-out

single, but the Cats were unable
to rally.
The game serves as a micro-
cosm of the team's season. When
they get good pitching, they don't
hit. When they score runs, their
defense lets them down. And
when their defense makes plays,
sometimes the pitching falters.

Sophomore shortstop Jessi Nunn is
having a solid year at the plate.
Occasionally, the baserunning
hurts them. In a recent game, two
runners were picked off third,
killing rallies.
Last week, the Cats lost to
Middleburg 8-2.
Smith gave up eight hits and

.five walks, but thanks to five er-
rors behind her only three of the
Broncos runs were earned.
On offense, the Wildcats
banged out 11 hits and also
reached base on an error and two
Yet they scored just two runs,
leaving at least one runner on
base in every inning. In the sixth,
they got three hits and a walk, but
failed to score.
Crews, the Cats' leading hitter
for the season, had three hits in
the game, including a double. She
scored once.
Through the Middleburg game,
she is batting .387 with four dou-
bles. As a team the Cats have just
eight extra base hits, all doubles.
Brittany Hinson is also hitting
well, batting .286 and tied with
Brittany Gray for second on the
team. Jessi Nunn is at .250..
Smith, the pitcher, leads the
team with five runs batted in,
Despite her record, the fresh-
man has pitched well, with an
earned run average of 1.97. She
has 52 strikeouts in 78 innings,
but has walked 33.
As a team, the Cats are averag-
ing nearly five errors per game.
Their next game is March 24 at
Bradford County. They then host
Santa Fe March 28. The junior
varsity game begins at 4:00 pm,
the varsity at 6:00 pm.
After those two games, they
have just five more until the dis-
trict tournament.

By Jared Wilkerson

When planning to sell a
home, sellers sometimes be-
gin to look around the property
in search of repairs or
upgrades that need to
be made in order to
make the home more
appealing to buyers.
While the idea is a
good one in terms of
selling points, often
times the repairs cost
more money than the
sellers will recoup
when selling the prop-
erty. Also, making cost-
ly upgrades
just prior to ;
selling a Aft
home is one
of the roads
that leads to
overpricing in
a seller's at-
tempt to get
back upon
closing what
they've just
put into the property.
Some repairs and upgrades
are worthwhile, however. For
instance, if all of the other
homes in the neighborhood
that are currently on the mar-
ket have recently remodeled
kitchens and bathrooms, it
would be a pretty tough; sell to
market a home with all original
fixtures and cabinetry at the
same pricing levels as the
rest. Here's a handy list of
do's and don't regarding
home repairs:
Do: Repaint all interior

rooms with neutral colors. Not
only will it make the home look
nicer and less lived in, but neu-
tral colors are sure not to of-
fend the design tastes of

prospective buyers. Light c
ors also make a room look b

Do: Consider re-shinglir
the roof if it is over 20 yea

over 100% return on repair
costs upon the resale of the.
home. This study included only
homes that were stripped to

the bare wood and


then re-shingled. If there is
- wood damage already pre-
sent in the roof, it may be a
better idea to simply lower the
price and disclose this infor-
mation to the buyers. Among
buyers who like a home and
are considering purchasing it,
one of the major turnoffs that
will change their minds is
knowing that the roof will need
to be replaced soon. Guess,
what one of the major turn-ONs

- Do: Update bathrooms if
they are becoming unsightly.
This especially applies to any
bathrooms that are adjacent to
major living areas (these are
the ones the new owners will
let guests use). These repairs
can be .extensive and still pay-
off. Replace all fixtures to in-
clude sinks, tubs, shower-
heads, and even the toilet.
New solid surface countertops
are a great selling feature
here. A remodeled bathroom
fetches nearly 110% of the
costs upon resale.
Do: Consider doing some
minor remodeling of the
kitchen. The kitchen is one of
the most influential areas of
the house. If it looks a little
outdated, the buyers will never
forget that. All-new cabinets
simply cost too much to re-
place to ever recoup that mon-
ey at closing. However, older
cabinet doors can be easily re-

placed with newer fashions at
a fraction of the cost of replac-
ing box frames and all.
Linoleum is a floor covering

whose time has
passed in today's
housing market. If it
can be re-
placed with a
: moderately
.,- ^'. priced alter-
native, it will
,,... be well worth
the effort.
Finding a good deal on

more energy efficient
appliances is not a
bad idea either, de-
pending on how old the
existing ones are.
Don't: Bother replac-
ing windows. Everyone
'f- loves the idea of dou-
ble-paned thermal win-
dows, but the price
and time involved will
cost an average of
about a 20% loss at re-
;, Don't: Remodel any
ao- rooms to include
adding customized
shelving or built-in stor-
age spaces. Not only will it cut
out roughly 25% of the cost of
upgrading, but the newly built-
in entertainment center may
leave buyers wondering where
the big-screen TV is supposed
to go. Also, the new shelving
inlay in the third bedroom may
knock out just enough space
to preclude junior from upgrad-
ing to a queen sized bed this
Don't put in new carpet if
the old carpet has any life left
in it at all. Worst-case sce-
nario: if the carpet is really
that bad, offer a carpet al-
lowance for the buyers at clos-
ing. Now they can select their
own carpet, which will make
them happier anyway, or at
least make them feel better
about living with ragged carpet
while using the allowance to
go out and get that big screen
TV that they still have room for.

Very often your credit report can contain inaccurate or miss-
ing information which could not only affect whether or not you
get financing, but also the rate at which you are approved for.
I suggest that before you begin looking for a home you visit
http://www.annualcreditreport.com to request a free report
from each of the three nationwide credit reporting agencies.
This. report is provided free to all consumers once every 12
.The National Association of Realtors reports that 77% of all .
recent homebuyers used the Internet-to search for homes. I
am sure that most prospective buyers have visited sites that
have requested personal information from them in order to
"refer them to a local realtor who can assist them with their
real estate needs. These websites are usually selling the
Information that you provide them with to third parties. I know
that I get solicited by at least three companies a day wanting
.me to pay for buyer leads. These leads are coming from
sources like the one I described. I recommend that if you are
SIokihg for a realtor you go to www.realtor.com. Not only will
you be able to find a local one who can assist you in your
search, but you will also be able to search the most compre-
hensive listings database in the country.
"Be careful when searching for a lender on the Internet. It is
always a good idea to be extra cautious about sharing your
financial or personal information over the internet. There are
people out there who make a living stealing other people's
identity. As a rule of thumb, I always recommend that you use
a, lender you are familiar with. If you don't already have a
. lender that yoi do business with then ask your realtor. Most
have several reliable and reputable lenders that they can
refer. you.
Buying a home should be exciting and fun. When you first
start out It usually is, but if you are not being represented by
a professional it can also become very scary. A Realtor can
help you not only find the right home in the area that you
wanting, but they also make sure that all the items neces-
sary for closing are taken care of. Would you know what to do
if your termite inspection failed or if there were issues on the
home inspection that needed to be taken care of? There are
many issues that can come up and throw a wrench in the
closing if they are not acted upon quickly and professionally.
Realtors know the market they are working in and have expe-
rience in dealing with all types of problems that may arise.
The first step in selling your home is to know the market
value of it. There are a couple of ways that you can obtain
this information. If you have the money you can hire an
appraiser to give you an appraisal. This fee is typically
between $300 and $500 on a residential property. You can
find a list of appraisers in your area by calling the Chamber of
Commerce or by looking in the phone book. The second
option is to have a local realtor who knows the market to per-
form a comparable market analysis (commonly referred to as
a CMA). A CMA is very similar to an appraisal but cannot be
used for lending purposes. This service is usually provided
free of charge and will compare your home to other similar
properties that have sold within the past year giving you a
good idea of the fair market value.

Never allow people to view
your home without scheduling
an appointment. Most serious
buyers are escorted by a real
estate professional and will
call ahead of time to make an
appointment. When a prospec-
tive buyer calls to schedule an
appointment it is always a
good idea to write down their
contact information and call
them back at the number they
provided prior to their appoint-
ment to assure that they are
When presented with an offer
on your home make sure that
you thoroughly understand all
parts of the contract before
you sign it. Most important are
the contingencies and time
frames that are going to affect
the transaction. If you have

any questions, or are unsure,
it is my recommendation that
you seek the advise of a real
estate attorney before signing
Your home is usually the
largest financial investment
that you have. When you con-
sider that the majority of.
homes sold using a realtor
sold for 16% more than those
being sold by owner, it only
makes good financial sense to
hire one to help you sell yours.
When choosing a realtor don't
be afraid to shop around; ask
your friends and relatives for
referrals and interview several
agents before you make your
decision. You should feel com-
fortable and confident in the
professional that you hire.

Showcasing a Home for Sale

By Jared Wilkerson

There are many particulars
that need to be sorted out
when staging a home to sell in
today's market. Putting the
"FOR SALE" sign in the yard
and taking numerous appoint-
ments is only a small portion of,
the job, and not necessarily a
*: largely important one. A home
must be in a condition to
appeal to the largest number of
buyers possible before the first
potential purchaser walks in
the door.
One of the first things to con-
sider in preparing a home to
sell should be an obvious one -
curb appeal. -.No matter how
great the inside looks, the out-
side appearance of the home is
what makes a buyer want to
see more. There are many pro-
fessional landscapers available
that specialize in making
homes look more inviting by
adding small shrubs and creat-
ing walkways that connect dif-
ferent areas of the yard to one
another. However, some of
these services can be quite
expensive and often sellers will
not recoup the money spent to
spruce up the outward appear-
ance of their homes. Of
course, if the yard is just in ter-
rible shape, it may actually be
worth the cost to hire such a
company- in order to obtain a
sale on the property. On the,
other hand, there are several
cost effective methods of
adding curb appeal thai require
little more than a bit of sweat
equity from the owners. Such
improvements include adding
new mulch to the perimeter of
the home and around large
trees, applying preformatted
flowering arrangements along
walkways, and pressure wash-
ing the unavoidable dirt and
grime that attaches itself to the
exterior walls of a home over
the course of time. It should go.
without saying that any clut-
tered materials that have found
a-home for themselves, in. th .
yard -should be removed from
sight and placed in storage or
gotten rid of completely.
Next, the front door of the
home should look as inviting as
possible. A fresh coat of paint
goes a long way for making the
front porch look more welcom-
ing. Scuff marks from when
everyone pushed the door
open with their feet while carry-
ing packages and groceries will
give a bad impression, and
they're easily fixed. "
Once inside, sellers should
strive to create: an atmosphere
where buyers can see them-
selves coming home to this
place every night. One of the
most important ways of doing
this is to remove any personal
items from the main living
areas of the house. It is a psy-
chological oddity, yet true, that
when prospective buyers walk
through a home and see, for
example, family photos of the
current owners, they. invariably
feel as though they are merely
temporary guests in the
home...the home of someone
else. Sellers sometimes have
a problem with this concept
due to the fact that they have
history in the home and these
personal items chronicle that
history. Try to focus on the fact
that a move is taking place and
the only way to accomplish it is

to sell the house. That's all it
is at this point, anyway. It's
just a house. Your new home is
down the road somewhere.
There are two easy ways to
make a house look more spa-
cious: Painting and de-clutter-
ing. Paint is probably the most'
cost effective method of
improving the selling quality of
a home. "Twenty dollars in the
'can, two-thousand on the wall"
is an adage that almost every-
one is familiar with. To create
an open feeling, use brighter
colors. Deeper colors tend to
make a room feel more
cramped. Also, non-neutral col-
ors may clash with a buyer's
own sense of style. Believe it
or not, the first thoughts
through their mind will not be
" that they can just repaint the
place. They'll immediately

think about how ugly the place
looks and then probably make
fun of the .owners, just for
De-cluttering: Remove all
items that are not necessary
for the remaining time to be
spent living in the home. Not
only does this create space,
but statistically, buyers are
three times" as likely to pur-
chase a home that is vacant
than an almost identical fur-
nished home. The supposed
reason being, they can more
easily mentally arrange their
own furniture in a room that is
already near empty.
Remember, the keys to a
successful sale are making the
home as inviting and as mal-
leable to the next owner as
