Thank you all for another wonderful year, You are why we are here! From the desk of Chairman Tommy Langford: In just a few short weeks we will be heading to the polls to elect men and women to lead our nation and our state. This coming election it is extremely important that everyone vote as the stakes here in Florida have never been higher. We have to elect a governor and three cabinet officers, and Ron Desantis is the person we need to become Florida's next governor. He is fighting back against the extreme socialist positions of his opponent who wants a one billion dollar tax increase and Medicare for all. We cannot afford the govern ment that he wants, we must elect Ron Desantis. It is also imperative that we show up to vote for our State Representative Chuck Clemons. Chuck has been a great friend of Gilchrist County and nobody has been more visible and more accessible for us the citizens than Representative Clemons. We need him in the Legislature to work with the governor to continue to make Florida the best place to live, work, and raise a family. That is why it is equally important to vote for Matt Caldwell, Ashley Moody, and Jimmy Patro nis. Please take the time to educate yourself on the numer ous constitutional amendments on the ballot, and the judicial races as well. The future of our state is too great to stay home. With early vote and election day vote at the polls, everyone has plenty of time to vote and to bring your friends and family out to vote. Thanks and God bless.

In my Tennessee mountain home, life is as peaceful as a babys sigh. Dolly Last Wednesday morning I threw my jeans, fall tee shirts and favorite bag and strapped on my leather bracelet, the one with Wanderlust stamped on it. At last the day had ar rived to load up with my daughter-inlaw Lyndsay and granddaughter Mat tie and head north to Nassau County. The three Ayers girls hopped into the car with our daughter, Carrie and granddaughter Allie Claire. Oh happy day! Our fun trip to the Smoky Mountains was underway. Several weeks ago Carrie asked Al lie what type party she wanted for her 10th Birthday. Allie gave it some thought and came back with, I be lieve I would rather have a girls trip. her MeMe. Boy, I was excited right from the start to be included on the trips guest list. Last November we visited the beautiful Biltmore House and en joyed all the Christmas decorations. Allie wanted to return and see it once again. Carrie and I put our heads to gether and came up with an extra sur prise for Allie, a visit to Dollywood. Allie loves all things handmade and we thought she would enjoy seeing the artists and crafters at work in Dol lywood. On our way down US 411 heading toward Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, we rounded the curve and stumbled upon Bushs Baked Beans Welcome Cen ter and museum. We hopped out of the car for a quick break and found a cute cafe, general store, as well as a very interesting museum about the bean company. The people working at the museum were so nice, everyone really en joyed our time there and we learned a lot about A.J. Bush who founded the company in 1897. The pretty valley where the original farm is located is named Chestnut Hill, Tennessee. There are two factories in the val ley, one is the Bush Bean factory and the Ball Canning company also has a factory there and they actually make the cans that the beans are packed in. Bushs welcome center is just 14 miles east of Sevierville. We checked into DreamMore Re sort right down the road from Dolly wood late in the afternoon. The resort has been open for about three years now. DreamMore was so homey and welcoming, I could have spent a week. But, two nights there was just great. We were welcomed with a warm cup of apple cider and a boatload of Fall decorations. The resort was de signed to have a mountain feel, from the swimming hole (pool with wa loads of white rockers on the porch es, it was perfect.

When testing this recipe Winesap apples were used. Winesap apples America during the colonial time. Roasted Mountain Apples 3 apples, peeled, sliced into 8ths 3 tablespoons melted butter 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice 1/4 cup brown sugar Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter and apple pie spice. Place apple slices into medium size bowl. Pour the butter mixture over apples and toss. Sprinkle brown sugar over apples and toss again. Pour the apples into a 9x13 glass baking dish or pan and spread out the slices so they are not touching. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from the oven. Turn the slices over and place back in the oven. Turn the heat to 400 and bake another 20 minutes or until apples are tender. If you are using another variety of ap ples they may take a longer or shorter baking time. We ate these apples as a side dish. These roasted apples would be good served warm over vanilla ice cream or spooned over homemade pancakes.


Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters Have you ever just known that you were supposed to do something? My oldest son direction in college until one night a friend who worked in emergency services invited him to ride along on an ambulance. He came home after that shift and declared, I know what I want to do! He still loves his work and sees it as a calling, but without his friends invitation, he may never have taken this path. Likewise, when I was a young adult in my late 20s a church leader asked me to teach a bible study for the very to death, but once I prepared and presented a lesson from Gods Word, I knew that this was something I was called to do! As we continue our study of Esther, this week we get a front row seat to watch as Esther discovers Gods purpose for allowing her to become queen of Persia. Last week we learned that Haman, Persians number one enemy of the Jewish people, had set a decree in motion to destroy every Jew in the land. Chapter four opens with Mordecai publicly mourning over this news. Mordecai mourned in the middle of the city and then to the entrance of the Kings gate clothed in sackcloth. No doubt it broke Esthers heart when she learned of Mordecais actions, and even more so because behind the safety of the palace walls, she had no idea what was troubling her cousin. Mordecai sent word and proof to Esther of Hamans decree and instructed her to go before the King and plead for the lives of her people. If we look back to chapter 2, we recall that even after Esther became queen, she still obeyed Mordecai just as when she lived in his home. So it was no small matter that she sent word back to Mordecai to oppose what he was asking. Esther 4:11 records her words: All the kings servants and the people of the kings provinces know that if any man or woman goes to the king inside the inner court without being called, there is but one law-to be put to death, except the one to whom the king holds out the golden scepter so that he may live. Esther was letting her cousin know that this was no small request-her life was on the line! Mordecais response is one of the most quoted lines in the book of Esther, and the entire Bible. With great faith, Mordecai explains that God will rescue His people, but if Esther does not stand up during this time, she will perish along with her family. Then he drives home his point, And who knows, whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this? What Mordecai reminded Esther is the same truth we all need to be reminded of from time to time: God grants us favor and uses our gifts and talents in order to further His plans. Not ours. What have you been called to do? When have you experienced a knowing of something you were supposed to be about? Has God used someone else to encourage you toward a certain end? Chances are good that God is using your small part in His story to bring together the bigger picture of His plan because every heart matters! New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

God now has another special angel to watch over us here on earth! Born in St. Augustine in 1929, Ruth was the daughter of William A. Jennings and Niona Key Pope Jennings. She is survived by two siblings, Olivia (Virginia) Clark of Virginia and Jeffrey Pratt of Florida. She was preceded in death by 3 brothers, Charles, Walter and Richard Jennings. Ruth was a direct descendant of Francis Scott Key author of the Star Spangled Banner. Her father was the last person to be buried at the Memorial Cemetery off Butler Blvd. on Tybee Island and was a celebrated and honored leader of Tybee Island during its early development. Ruth leaves behind 3 loving children, Barbara Len Starr, Nancy Ruth Snow and Robert Leonard Edwards, Sr. Barbara and Nancy live in Temecula and Escondido, California and Robert is a resident of Trenton. In addition, she has 7 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Ruth grew up in Georgia and spent most of her young years in Macon and then on Tybee Island. Tybee was her favorite place in the world and she loved it dearly and revisited there as often as possible. She, her brothers and their friends were the core group that started the original Tybee-ite Reunion. Their family home was two blocks from the Tybee Island Lighthouse and Fort Screven; which were the foundation for so many of her fond memories. She loved the beach and always wanted to return to Tybee Island. Ruths early career was in banking and accounting which eventually lead her to key administrative positions at Bayview Nursing Home in Beaufort and Hilton Head Hospital on Hilton Head Island. She had a sharp mind details! Ruth loved music and could always be heard singing around the house while doing chores and raising her three children. She was a single mother who gave her children everything they needed and more, while at the same time doing with the barest of essentials for herself. She would say You children are my life and she proved it all the would always ask, How is everyone doing? and then would ask about everyone by name. In her later years she became somewhat of an expert in genealogy and tracked her family records back to England and particularly Wales. Ruths nickname was Georgia Peach obviously tying back to her roots. She was loved by most everyone she met and was a true friend to many. But most of all she was the most wonderful mother and grandmother in the world! She will be missed-but not forgotten! You will be loved forever and always Mom! Services will be held at a later date on Tybee Island, Georgia. Please donate to your favorite charity in her name.

Dads, Take Your Kids to School September 26 was an exciting day at Trenton Elementary. There were many excited students and their dads at breakfast enjoying a cinnamon roll and a few extra minutes together.
