Wayne Clausing has been chosen to represent Carbon County as the honorable Grand Marshall in the 2009 St. Patrick's Day Parade. With his heritage being 50 percent Irish, it would seem to be a perfect choice, but in reality it goes much deeper than this. Clausing is a valued addition to the community.

In 2004, he came to Price to manage Sutherlands, a national home improvement center. This brought to our community a person with a lot of energy, someone who treats everyone with respect, and someone who wants to be involved.

Clausing wants to and seems to be involved in every aspect of the community. As president of the 2010 Chamber of Commerce, Treasurer of the Kiwanis, he is socially, and politically active in all areas.

"Being involved pays back in the friendships," states Clausing, "I have more friends here in Carbon County than I ever did in Salt Lake City. The people here are genuinely friendly and very good people. "

Clausing is not new to the home improvement business. Starting as a stock boy when he was 16, he has worked his way up through the ranks and will soon be celebrating his 24th anniversary in this line of work. His father's advise to him when he was growing up was either work in the grocery business because everyone has to eat, or work in the home improvement business because every one needs to do repairs. He took his father's advice.

Coming from a poor family, he has grown up to appreciate people. His father a laborer and his mother handicapped with cerebral palsy, made his growing-up years tough.

"It made me who I am today," said Clausing. "I am grateful to the people who helped us along the way, and now I am in the position to give back."

Wayne is very generous, either with his donations to the causes in the area. He also has infectious friendship and hospitable personality.

"I hold this to be true; support and shop locally," said Clausing. "I am very fortunate to be here and thank all who support me. I am also grateful for my wife Monica and our family. I am fortunate and blessed to have them in my life."

Clausing has a can of corned beef in the window of his office. He explained that when he first moved here, he missed the traditional corned beef and cabbage on St Patrick's Day. Years ago, an employee brought this in to him to cheer him up, and it has been there ever since.

Maybe he is all Irish instead.
