Record launches special edition that will help raise awareness for Not-for-profits Bookmark


Dear St. Johns County Neighbor,


Giving Back.   Philanthropy.   Supporting a cause.   I know that it’s as important to you as it is to me.  And, to celebrate the tradition of philanthropy in St. Johns County, The St. Augustine Record will be producing two special sections to highlight the giving spirit of our community.

ST.JOHNS COUNTY GIVES will explore and extol the charitable efforts of local people, businesses and corporations in support of a wide range of causes.  Giving at every level will be included, with a look at who gives and why, as well as profiles of doers of good deeds.  These pages will publish on Sunday, May 28th and Sunday, September 24th to spotlight local non-profit foundations and their strategies for navigating the economic climate.

Clearent: An introduction and FAQ's Bookmark

Dear Business Owner,

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  This is simply a sheet to inform you on Clearent as well as frequently asked questions about the industry.  Besides the possibility of us doing business together it is also my job to inform.  I have been in the industry for 8 years and am familiar with a lot of the same frustration you are surrounding card processing and your business.  I understand that most business owners at some point in time have been taken advantage of and when someone like myself walks into your door a wall goes up, which is why I have created this sheet for you.
