Adam and Ashley Cook finalist for Farm Bureau Award Trenton Commission intends to expand City Park with purchase of property By John Ayers The Trenton City Commission took action Monday afternoon to pur chase a .5-acre parcel of property that is located at 410 South Main Street and Southeast Third Avenue. This property is adjacent to the Trenton Community Center on the west and the Trenton Fire Department on the north. City Manager Lyle Wilkerson reported to the Commission that there is a real estate appraisal in the meet erty of interest is valued at $80,000. This property has three older mobile homes that are currently rented out to single families. Lucy Hendricks owns this prop erty and she has put the property on the market for sale. Commissioner Randy Rutter made a motion to di rect the City Manager to enter into an option to purchase the property from the owner for $75,000 plus the cost of the closing to expand the Trenton City Park onto this parcel. Commis sioner Davis gave a second to the motion as Vice Mayor Haley called for a vote. The Commission approved the motion by a 4-0. Attorney David M. Lang, Jr. explained if the owner is receptive to the offer, the Commis sion will enter into a contract, have a public meeting and then determine when a closing on the property would be held. Submitted for Florida Farm Bureaus 2018 Achievement in Agriculture Award and will compete in October for the top statewide honor at the Florida Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in St. Augustine October 24-26, 2018. Ashley Cook of Gilchrist County, Andrew Taylor of Walton County and Chance Clay of St. Johns County. The Achievement in Agriculture Award recognizes members of Florida Farm Bureaus Young Farmers and Ranchers program who excel in their involvement in agriculture, leadership abilities and participation in Farm Bureau and other civic and service organizations. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 35. They may apply as individuals or as couples. We are very excited about announcing this years Achievement Its the water ...seems like a simple statement but as Floridas population grows, so does concerns over the water supply. BMP Logic is a family owned company headquartered on SR129 in South Trenton. You may have passed by the white building lo cated next door to A-1 Pest Control many times and never knew about the innovative water saving device that the company sells. Justin Jones and Doug Crawford are partners in BMP Logic, which sells soil moisture probes also re ferred to as soil moisture sensors. The business began in 2014 and has grown steadily since that time. The business is a family affair, not only are Jones and Crawford brother-in-laws, their three sons work with them. Justus and Carson Jones have worked with the com pany over the summers and Brett Crawford works full time with BMP Logic. Soil moisture probes were in vented by Peter Buss in Australia back in the early 1990s. Australia is the driest continent on earth. Craw ford said that through the years the software has improved to make the probes more user friendly. BMP Logic sells Sentek moisture probes which cost around $2000 each and are reported to be the best on the market. These water saving probes mea sure the depth of the moisture in the soil, as well as the length or depth of the plants roots which needs the moisture to grow and produce the optimum crop. A grower or farmer can see how deep the moisture has or zone on the device of their choice. Many farmers use a smart phone to data that the probe collects is avail able to farmers every three hours 24 hours a day. Some farmers want data more often and the program can be set up to accommodate that. This in formation is a big help as farmers are good stewards of the land and dont want to over water their crops. It costs to run irrigation equipment and over watering can leach out the fer tilizer which causes them to have to apply more fertilizer. The idea is to have the plant use all the water and fertilizer the farmer applies. These moisture probes will also give an indication of the salinity in the soil which tends to be an indicator of the fertilizer remaining in the soil. Another advantage of the probes is record keeping because they provide a record of the amount of water a given farmer is using on a crop dur ing the growing season. The most common crops the moisture probes are being used on in the Tri-County Area are wa termelons, corn and peanuts. Ac cording to the Suwannee River Water Management Districts the soil moisture probes are saving 6,000,000 gallons of water per day.

John and I celebrated our 39th wedding Anniversary last Saturday. We were invited to Ebenezer Baptist was it good, fresh hot mullet, Miss Maxines good hush puppies and amazing pots of swamp cabbage with lots of bacon rounded out the meal. Well, lots of from-scratch side dishes and desserts, including homemade truly cant remember having a better meal in a very long time. The fellowship is always enjoyable at Ebenezer. Just good people who love the Lord and really good food cooked by Southern cooks with lots of experience. I cant think of a better way to spend our anniversary. Can you believe school starts in just over a week. The summer has about backpacks and school supplies. If you are one of those Moms who still prefers to send their children off to school after they eat breakfast, this recipe is not only good, its simple to make. The nuts can be optional in this recipe and in the Fall a 1/2 tea spoon of cinnamon would be a nice addition. 3/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup chopped pecans 3 medium ripe bananas 1 large Egg 1/3 cup butter, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla extract soda, salt and pecans, stir with whisk until mixed. In another bowl, mash the bananas. Add egg, butter and va nilla, mix well. Stir banana mixture That equates to a saving of 151,000 gallons per acre over a growing sea son on these common local crops. According to Jones and Craw ford, the probes have a 90% saving in water use. One probe can save 5 1/2 million gallons of water per year. Standard probes measure moisture 20 inches deep but probes are available Farmers and growers are quickly adapting to this new technology. Many including area watermelon grower Loran Brookins are commit ted to the use of moisture probes. Brookins has been using the probes for three growing seasons in his wa love them, Im an old school farmer and I have learned to trust them, if you can do that you will save a lot of money. Brookins said after the season the probes are removed from Brookins said he feels good about not good for the environment, Brookins said. Jones and Crawford said that they are happy to help farmers become fa miliar with reading the data that the probes report. Crawford said with just a little training farmers are using the data to save water, save fertilizer and take care of their land. izen would be surprised to know how much technology farmers are using. To help farmers implement these water saving devices the Suwannee River Water Management District has a cost sharing plan for soil mois ture probes. Hugh Thomas of the Suwannee River Water Management better technology on the market for managing irrigation and water con servation than the soil moisture sen sors (or probes). Our goal is to get at least one sensor on every farm in the Suwannee Valley within the next few years. Both Jones and Crawford have ag riculture backgrounds. Jones was a county agent and later worked with UF/IFAS at Live Oak as a research coordinator before moving back home to Trenton.

Letter to the Editor Submitted I would like to applaud both Lowell Chesborough and Rosemary McDaniels on their letters to the editor in recent GCJ. Mr. Chesborough is right about the knee jerk reaction of the county to increase the Sheriffs Department (in reaction to recent school shootings) and Ms. McDaniels and the county jumping on that bandwagon, too. We all respect any increase in our little countys budgets should be thoroughly and thoughtfully reviewed. The whole war on drugs is, unfortunately, a huge waste of time and major waste of money. People who are addicted to any drugs need help, not more laws criminalizing their actions. Yes, there is a lot of crime involved with drug dealers, but if the drugs were legal, you probably wouldnt have so much crime with smuggling and drug dealing. Prohibition didnt work and cost so many lives with all the crime it created. People who want to get high There are some people who need strong pain medications and who do not get hooked on these drugs. They will be the ones to suffer in the end. This is why it is so important to vote for very conservative candidates who have experience in managing, and not just spending, tax payer money.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters Ready or not, the back-to-school bells are getting ready to ring! The slower pace of summer is ending, and we face the task of preparing our children for the challenges of the upcoming year. A few that come to mind are buying new supplies, getting bedtimes back into practice and meeting the new teacher. Thinking back to our own school days may remind us of something important that we often to overlook as parents. Our kids may begin school with some real anxiety about what the year will hold. As adults, it can be easy to get caught up in grown-up problems such as work, paying bills, etc. and tend to brush off the fears our kids may have as unimportant or even silly. To your children, however, these issues are as real as any you may be facing. If your children seem less than thrilled about going back to school, ask some questions: Are you looking forward to seeing your friends? Are you nervous about how hard the work will be? What do you think about your new teacher? What do you hope will (or will not) happen this year? Listen to how your children answer these and other questions, and respond with encouragement. Proverbs 12:25 gives great insight: An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. Helping your child bring their fears out into the open will not only make them less fearful, it will also give you an opportunity to encourage them to deal with their feelings in a positive way. Commit to checking in with your children on a regular basis, asking open-ended questions (ones that require more than a yes or no answer) to draw out their feelings. One great daily practice is intentional goodbyes and hellos. It works like this: every morning before your child heads off to school, encourage them about the day, no matter how stressful the morning has been or how hard it was to wake them up. Make sure that you and your children part ways on a positive note: I love you, have a great day! or I know you will do great on your test! It works the same way when you reunite at the end of the day. Make sure to take a few moments to ask about the day, especially if their heart seems weighed down. Dont get discouraged if they dont open right up and talk. Give it time and practice. Keep asking and keep encouraging and remember that our children have their own giants to face. Above all, we want to make sure they know we are in their corner! New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

Arri Grant, son of Wes and Julie Grant and member of the Kountry Bumpkins 4-H Club, represented Levy County with his horse Penny. Arri, eleven years old, entered 5 events in the Western Division and rode away with 2 state championships in Western Pleasure and Western Riding. For western pleasure, Penny must respond to Arris loose rein while exhibiting three gaits, different leads, her ability to back easily and stand quietly. Western riding combines all of the requirements of western pleasure in addition to performing one of 3 patterns selected by the judges. Arri competed against 4 senior division riders to complete a complicated 15 step pattern and win a second championship. When asked how he could overcome nervousness to remember so many detailed steps of multiple patterns, he replied, I was nervous but me and Daddy have practiced a lot. Needless to say, it helps to be riding a lucky Penny! Arri lives with his family in Southern Gilchrist County. Arri Grant does well at 4-H State Horse Show Arri Grant and his horse Penny enjoyed the Florida 4-H State Horse Show in Tampa.
