Macclenny officials approved a
priority list of road repairs Tuesday
night, but will seek bids on the
work before deciding whether the
city can afford to do all of them.
A preliminary estimate for com-
pleting-all 19 trouble spots is
$715,232. The work ranges from
resurfacing to new construction.
The city will ask that the bids
remain valid for 60 days, giving
city manager Gerald Dopson time

mission, saying the city could ask
for bids on the cost per linear foot
then determine how much money is
available in the budget in order to

could be done.

Hit and run

1-10 fatality
Baker County's traffic fatality
count climbed to six late on June
11 when a Tennessee man who
had been thrown off his motorcy-
cle was struck by an eastbound ve-
hicle that failed to stop.
James N. Roberts, 49, of Sum-
mertown was also eastbound in the
inside lane of Interstate 10 two
miles east of Sanderson when his
bike struck a piece of tire debris in
the roadway, said the Florida
Highway Patrol.
He was lying on the pavement
still in the inside lane when what
witnesses said appeared to be mid-
size passenger vehicle rolled over
him. The impact tossed Mr. Ro-
berts' body into the median.
The accident occurred at about
11:00 pm and was the second mot-
orcycle-related fatality in Baker
County since early April.

to fie woes,

dPy summer
It was unclear as the remnants of
Hurricane (Tropical Storm) Alberto
moved over Baker County early this
week, but the man in charge of for-
est fires here says 6-7 inches of rain
could relieve the area of danger for
the majority of the summer. .
"If we get that much and it soaks
into the ground around these '
swamps and timber, we could be in
good shape for a long time," sur-
.mised Steve Holman, area sup-
ervisor for the Suwannee District of
the Florida Division of Forestry.
Though rainfall in the area at
10.5 inches so far.this year lagged
behind normal by 8 inches, DOF .
stopped short this month of ordering
a burn ban similar to the one man- Deputy co
spotter plane
dated in Union and Bradford coun-
ties to the south.
"The public has been responsible, and I hesi-
tate to recommend something like that unless
our "dry index" got worse," said Mr. Holman,
whose headquarters is at the DOF work station
west of Glen St. Mary. '
He believes the public has been aware of fire'

Lk fire in the Os-

e than 5" Forest that con-
sumed 4000 acres with varying
degrees of damage.
The US Forest Service dispatched crews from
as far away as Puerto Rico to battle that fire on a
limited basis because most of it was in an area
protected by the government. Mechanized vehi-
cles are banned from the area, so agencies sur-
round it and starve it of ground fuel (brush and
undergrowth) once it reaches a perimeter.
The government several years ago abandoned
then-traditional methods of controlling wildfires
burning off underbrush on a regular and con-
trolled basis.
Protected areas of the Osceola now are left

essentially alone for the elements to take their
course, and often during hot, dry summer
months that means lighting ignition and hope for
the best.
Baker County-based DOF crews also were dis-
patched to help out with wildfires that raged
across Volusia and Brevard counties in recent
weeks. Those areas are also hoping for helpful
precipitation from Alberto this week.
The decision earlier to hold off on a burn ban
is based largely on a drought index of varying
factors. Baker County's was 609 at the begin-
ning of this week; 800 is the maximum.

weekend, staying at a friend's con-

season decides to roar through.
That's about the way of it. The

catch that stunner between Togo
and the Korean Republic. Togo
sounds more like a geography les-
son than a World Cup team.
Sunday night, the weather
began to change. Tropical storm
Albenro had begun to form in the
Gulf. We listened to the weather
carefully and tried to decide
whether we should head home for
the duration. A
"No," I decided. "We'll proba-
bly get a lot of rain and some
wind. By the time it reaches us, it
will probably be nothing more,
than a nor'easter."
I've been on the beach in a
nor'easter and actually prefer the

grey, blustery days on the ocean to
the bright and sunny ones.
I'm not a complete idiot. If this
were a real hurricane heading our,
way, I'd be out of here and headed
inland in a minute. Thankfully,
I've been through precious few
hurricanes and tropical storms.'
The first was Dora. We hadjust
moved to the area from New York
and spending a few months in Ft.

little house in Lake City at the
time, and I remember watching
George Winterling on a 15" black

That was 1964.
Even then my mother trusted

Through this, we never once complained to the
school board. People would ask me where I lived,
and I'd proudly proclaim that we are next to the
school board building.
I am sorry to say this is no longer true.
I do not know what solutions exist for the present
traffic problems, and yes, they are definitely prob-
One would think they were addressed long be-
fore the new Kindergarten-Pre-K center was ever

It is understandable that there are minor prob-

around and so we also worried
about wind damage.,
We hunkered down and stayed
awake most of the night. It was
very windy. You could hear it

took turns trying to comfort the

Dear Editor:
Let me begin by saying I support Danny Lamb
one-hundred percent in his efforts to find a solution
to the traffic problems we encounter in our south
Macclenny neighborhood.
.I have lived in this neighborhood 52 years, and
when we built our home there was nothing but
woods between our property and the school.
Macclenny Elementary was built first, then the.
superintendent's office. We have always had school
traffic, but nothing of this magnitude.
Our children were in school and my husband and
I both worked, so the traffic was something that
could be tolerated. Our home was not air condi-
tioned back then so we slept with the windows
The parking lot of the superintendent's office was
a popular spot for local party animals. Their parties
began around 3:00 am and one could tolerate the
loud music and carousing for just so long.

Caytlin Crews has wanted to be
a Gatorette since she was five years
"You hear people say they've
always dreamed of doing certain
things," says 18-year-old Caytlin,
who lives in Macclenny. "I'm
lucky in that I've been able to
make my.dream happen."
Like many girls in the area,
Caytlin was taught at a young age
by former twirler Sherrie
Rauler'son, principal of the PreK-
Kindergarten Center.
The years that followed were
filled with lessons, competitions
and performances under the tute-
lage of June Stoeber, who coaches
the University of Florida Gatorette
Commuting to Gainesville sev-
eral times a week became a way of
Caytlin worked and worked and
worked, the dream of one day
being a Gatorette always present in
her mind.
Learning a baton technique can
involve hours of practice, tossing
the baton hundreds and hundreds
of times until the movement
becomes natural and the timing,
synchronized and automatic.
Having the ability to master
movements such as splits,, cart-
wheels and walkovers (a hand-
stand/flip) combined with tossing
and catching a baton is a given.
"Most people don't understand
what's involved in this activity. It's
very physical and you can get pret-
ty banged up," says Caytlin. "I'\ e
had my share of bruises been hit
in the face by falling batons and
once broke my toe. I've been a
cheerleader too, and twirling is
much more demanding physical-
ly." .

During the(2005-06 school year
when Ca tlin as a senior she as
'head majorette for the Baker High
Wildcats, an experience she be-
lieves was integral to her prepara-
tions for the event she had been
working toward for so long the
Gatorette audition.
"There was so much responsi-
bility for the younger .girls on the
team and I had to help design the
performance routines of the
twirling team for every halftime
show," said Caytlin. "It was pretty
For the past two years, Caytlin

Caytlin's first experience com-
peting at the, AYOP was also the
first time she 'had traveled away
from home by herself.
"I was so nervous for my child,"
said Cath,. Ca tlin's supportive
mother. "She'd never been away
from me and never flown on a
plane before either. When the
phone rang and I heard my daugh-
ter's hysterical voice on the line, I
thought something awful had hap-
It was Caytlin's amazement and
excitement that her mother heard
across the miles. Caytlin had man-
aged to perform a no-drop solo
routine, something very unusual
even for very seasoned competi-
"Almost. everyone has at least
one drop during a routine," says
Caytlin, "That's just normal. But I
performed my routine without a
single drop. I couldn't believe it."
This year, Caytlin and her team-
mates placed in the top ten in the
*AYOP competitions.
The Gatorette auditions were
held early .last month and Caytlin
was among the 16 girls competing
for the coveted few vacancies.

The 2-3 minute dance-ti\irl rou-

tricks which use more than one

To Daddy
A dad is a person who is loving
and kind,
And often he knows what you
have on your mind.
He's someone who listens, sug-
gests and defends,
A dad can be one of your very
best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient, helpful
and strong.
In all that you do, a dad's love
plays a part, there's al' a% s a place,
for him deep in your heart.
And each year that passes
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud just to
call him your dad!
Thank you, dad... for listening
and caring, for gi\ ing and sharing,
but especially for being just you!
Happy Fatlii 's Day

Using art

to teach

Press Staff
Terry Nauman wants to make a
difference in the lives of children in
Macclenny. Developing dynamic
reading programs for all children in
Baker County is her ultimate goal.
Ms. Nauman, a Children's
Outreach Assistant at the Emily
Taber Library has developed a.
vivacious reading program called
Arts Alive!, which is targeted
toward children ages 4 -10.
Arts Alive! which runs through
June 29th is a reading participation
program held :Tuesday and
Thursday mornings at the
Macclenny Woman's Club on Fifth
Street across from the library from
10:00 am- to, 11:00 am. The pro-
grams are free to all children in the
Arts Alive! has rapidly grown in
popularity due to Ms. Nauman's
arts and theatre' background and
her natural ability to connect with a
youngg audience.
"Reading and the arts go hand in
hand," says the energetic Nauman.
"It's been proven in study after
study that young children exposed
to some sort of arts program in
school featuring music, art, writ-
ing, or theatre do much better in all
subjects, including math and sci-
ence," she says. "Combine an arts
program with reading and you give
children an invaluable experience."
Ms. Nauman, a native of Peoria,
Illinois, started and managed her
own theatre arts program called
The Children's Performing Com-
pany. She has also worked for the
Georgia school system as a drama
'specialist and been involved with
children's music programming.
The Arts Alive! reading series
features many classic children's
books such as Clifford the Big Red
Dog, i-tere The Wild Things Are
and The Cow that Went Oink,. all
stories that lend themselves to cre-
ative dramatic interpretation,.par-,
ticipation and self-expression. The

stories are presented in such a \ a\y
that children ha\e lots of opportu-
nities for interaction.
Manners and consideration are
stressed, too, especially listening,
during the program. .
To get the excited children's
attention, Ms. Nauman pulls out a
horn and toots on it loudl\.
"Now boss and girls, I need
your ears for a while," she. says.
"OK, everyone take off your ears
and throw them to me!"
The children pretend to unscrew
their, ears and toss them to Ms.
Nauman, who jumps back and
forth catching them.
"I'll give them back after the
program," she tells the children,
who think this hilarious. "Now
don't forget and go home without
your ears, 'cause you'll look really
funny!" she laughs.,
It's easy to see why the program
is successful. Ms. Nauman is hav-

ing as much fun as the kids.
The Emil) Taber Library will
sponsor additional reading pro-
grams with Ms. Nauman in the
library's children's room featuring
such topics as space exploration,
good manners, insects and more.
These programs '\aill start Jul\
12th. Look for a % isit from Smokey
The Bear at the end of July.
For more information call Terry
Nauman at 259-6464. As soon as
the recorded message begins dial
23. Happy summer reading, kids!

"Davis did a good job of shutting
Bolles doM\ n," Staples said in a state-
ment. "Offensively. een though I
know it's the summer and we don't
practice too much, we were not
very effective....
"We can't continue to play
down to lesser programs than ours,
no matter what the season."
The coach said his team plays
tw% ice a week and practices only on
those days, prior to the games,

Why some houses don't sell

By Jared Wilkerson planning or poor execution, people living in a home that up, but they all show up to Try to imagine two onE
Real Estate Writer can sometimes be the big- is worth 66 percent of your a beat-up house in need of hundred dollar bills. Qne

SA few
ago I had
a home-
owner in i
the area
tell me he
did not
wish toQ
hire me
to sell his Jared Wilkerson, Realtor
home. I
cried a little, then wiped my,
nose and asked a rather silly
question: "Why not?"
"Because we know this
place is gonna sell itself,"
he replied.
Well, I'd feel kinda dumb
if I now had to tell every-
one that the home had sold
already. Besides, that would
ruin the whole premise for
this article. Last I checked,
they were still trying to sell
it by owner.
I'm not happy that it hasn't
sold after all this time. I
kinda knew they'd: have a
bit,of trouble with it when I
walked out of the house that
evening. Inefact, I even went
so far as to tell them so. But
TI'm a pretty decent guy over-
all and I don't get a kick out
of saying "I told ya so."
To be honest, I really can't
say for sure why it hasn't
sold. It's a fantastic house,
in a great neighborhood with
relatively .high traffic and
they've spent a small for-
tune on advertising.,
Well, they're not alone.
There are' several good
homes on the market right'
now that are having a tough
time trying to find the right
buyers. There's no doubt
about it, the market has
slowed down a bit and some
of these problems selling
can be attributed to that.
Overall, however, home
sales are still moving along
at a pretty fair pace. So,
when they aren't selling,
there are a few things that
deserve a closer look.
For the most part, the
usual suspects when a home
doesn't sell are marketing,
condition, and the kingpin of
crime himself, price.
An ineffective marketing
plan, whether from lack of

gest obstacle a homeowner
can face.
Owners trying to sell on

their own are not the only
ones that run into this prob-
lem. Last year alone there
were 76 homes in Baker
County being marketed by
local real estate agents and
they didn't sell either. We
call these "expired listings."-
Basically, the homeowners

The market-
ing plan has to
include several -j,, -
activities, such | J
as local adver-
tising, internet exposure, fly-
ers, Multiple Listing Service
(for REALTOR homes), open
houses, mail-outs to nearby
neighborhoods, target mar-
keting (to the demographic
that will most likely purchase
the home; either renters or

home's current value), show-
ing appointments, feedback
from buyers who viewed the

home but still decided not to
buy it and, of course, stick-
ing a sign in the front yard.
Try to keep in mind that
there is no successful com-
pany (well, at least none I
can think of) that only adver-,
tises its products through
one medium and leaves it

Selling a

Just doing
one or two of-
the activities.
above will
only make
buyers ,pay
attention for a split second,
then they'll forget all about
The second culprit, condi-

repair, they still won't buy
it regardless of how excited
they were to see it. If they do

decide to make an offer any-
way, they certainly won't pay
a decent price for it, even
if the repairs are simply
cosmetic in nature. This is
especially true if, despite its
poor showing condition, the
home is still being marketed
at top dollar for the area.
Homes for sale should
ideally be freshly painted.
inside and out. They should
be free of clutter and unnec-
essary furniture. Believe
it or not, the way that the
home smells makes a world
of difference to buyers, too.
I've seen buyers and even
agents walk about five feet
into a home, get a good
whiff of the family dog and
turn right back around and
get in the car. It may seem
a bit trivial, since smell is
a problem easily fixed, but
if they can't stand to be in
the home long enough to fall
in love with it, they aren't
gonna be buying it, either.
On the opposite end of
the condition spectrum, just

tion, is an aspect of the sale having a home that is in pris-
that only the seller can con- tine shape doesn't give the
trol. If the marketing gets seller license to go wild on
40 groups of buyers to show the asking price, either.



fresh, new, and crisp and
the other looks like it has
been dragged through the
mud and then hung up to
dry. If I held them out and
asked you which one you'd
like, you'd probably want
'the newer-looking one. But
would you be willing to pay a
lot more for it just because it
looked better? Probably not.
It's still worth a hundred dol-
lars regardless of its condi-
tion. So, for the most part,
condition is more of a sell-
ing feature than a huge price
determinant, which leads
me to pricing.
Without a doubt, the
number one reason that
homes have trouble sell-
ing is because the sellers,
whether influenced by a real
estate agent or not, are sim-,
ply asking too much money
for the home.
There's an old joke that
the three most important
things forthe salability of real
estate are location, location,
location. I called that a joke
because the truth is that the
most important factors are
price, price, price. It doesn't
matter if the home is right in
the middle of a nuclear test-
ing site, if it's priced right,
some guy with three eyes
and a five-legged dog will
come along and buy it.
If you've been trying to sell
your home for some time and
truly feel that the marketing
plan being used is a good
one, then it may be time to
rethink your assessment of
local market values. Aeain. a

Press Business "
A group of out-of-state inves-
tors concerned about a delayed
townhome project in Macclenny
are about to receive refunds of
their deposits, according to the
local builder who'd initiated the
George Knabb Jr. said
Monday checks were cut
June 9 and forwarded to the
Jacksonville real estate agent
who'd been working with the
17 to 19 investors from the
Maryland area.

that was'fair to everyone," he
Each had put down $2500
deposits on townhomes
planned for the Cypress Pointe
development off US 90 just
east of Macclenny.
The project, however, ran
into trouble.
"There were severe engi-
neering problems that set us
back," Knabb said. "I tried to
explain to then that it was just
a delay, but they ran out of
patience. I can't blame them
for that because it had been
about a year."
He wouldn't identify the engi-
neering company, but said a
new one has been hired.
Meanwhile, William, Walton
Jr., a Jacksonville businessman
who had invested in the project,
bought out Knabb, who said he
now has limited involvement.
He also said Walton offered
the Maryland group "pretty
good discounts" off the town-
homes if they wanted to stick
with it.

Why some houses don't sell

(From Page 1)
real estate agent is probably
the best source of this info.
What sellers must realize,
though, is that an agent may
seem to be quite competent
'when they give you a good
-asking price to use for your
home, but most of the time
that price will only be useful
if you actually hire the agent
to market the property.
Unfortunately for sell-
ers wanting to sell on their
own, the cards are stacked
against them when it comes
to competing with homes
that are actually on the mar-
ket with agents. We're steal-
ing a lot of your exposure to
buyers by working with them
at no cost out of their pock-
ets. They know that if they
try to buy directly from an
owner, they won't have the
advantages of professional
Therefore, most 'buy-
ers, (roughly 79 percent,
according to the National
Association of Realtors
2005 market survey) will
stick to what's listed if they
intend to purchase a used
home. Another 12 percent
will purchase new construc-
tion. This limits a lone sell-
er's exposure, thereby low-
ering demand and thus low-
ering offers.
That's why owners who

have a plan to speak with an
agent only to get a little free
priding advice often find that
their plan backfired on them.
The natural instinct is to later
assume that the agent just
didn't know what her or she
was talking about. However,
the truth is that sellers are
unfortunately often unaware
of what they're getting them-

selves into.
Before placing a home on
the market for sale, whether
by owner or hiring an agent,
take a good, objective look
around the house. Try to find
things that buyers might look
down on and fix them. Plan
out a timeline for marketing
activities which allows the.
highest number of people
nnssihle to all find out about

Then, make certain that the
price is based on actual

Most people don't just
one day get bored and say,
