Former Gilchrist 4-H Agent wins Sunbelt Ag Expo milking contest Last week former Gilchrist 4-H Agent Chris DeCubellis, who is now a statewide specialized agent for the University of Floridas 4-H program, won the title of champion milker. The milking contest was held at the Sunbelt Agricultural Expo in Moultrie, Georgia. DeCubellis went up against three other experienced milkers from Georgia, Alabama and Kentucky. The competition lasted just four minutes, with each competitor milking one of four Holstein cows for one minute at a time before rotating. DeCubellis grew up on a farm and said hes been milking cows since he was 3-years-old. I just milk the way my dad taught me, he said. That expert technique helped him produce the most milk during the competition. As a 4-H agent, DeCubellis passes on his wealth of dairy and livestock knowledge to the next generation. Florida 4-H is the youth development program of the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension, and gives young people ages 8 to 18 hands-on experiences with science, leadership, healthy living and community service. As prize for winning the competition, DeCubellis received a Sunbelt Ag Expo hat embroidered with Milking Champion. The 2019 Sunbelt Ag Expo is planned for October 15-17.

The panhandle bound caravan left Bell at 8 a.m. with the goal of delivering hot meals to those in need. Julie Thomas started the drive to collect as many good hot homemade casseroles as possible hoping to feed as many of our local people working hurricane relief as possible. The response was so overwhelming that they not only had enough for our GCSO deputies, lineman, and other workers, they were able to feed many citizens along the way. Thomas said, It all started with my desire to make sure folks that were away and working had a delicious, home cooked, made from the heart, Southern meal. Bryn Thomas hands out a one dish meal during the trip to the panhandle. Thomas reported that they traveled to four different towns with GCSO Lt. Clint Anderson and his brother Danny as their escort so that the caravan was able to reach as many people as possible. Matt and Alyssa Cowart pulled a covered trailer loaded with supplies and water they were donating to the cause. The Food Pantry of Gilchrist County and Ice River Springs water bottling plant in northeast Gilchrist County also donated water as well as those bringing one dish meals and casseroles. Thomas said, To those who made all those wonderful meals, a million thanks. Some folks out there had been eating MREs for days and some folks had been going without. The GCSO escorted the caravan through White City, Dalkeith, Port Saint Joe and Howard Creek. It was reported that they fed people in each town and were able to feed the entire community of Howard Creek. Reports are that the community of Howard Creek has pretty much adopted our After everyone else was fed, Lt.

Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Metuchen, New Jersey and then most of his boyhood was when they moved to Linden, New Jersey. When he was about 12 years old, his father purchased a mandolin for him and he learned to play it by ear. You might say it was a musical family as Pop played the accordion, his older brother Joe played the guitar. Eventually, Rich, his brother and another pal appeared each Sunday on a radio show in New York City called The Childrens Hour:. They were known as The Linden Trio. At this time, he also built model airplanes as a hobby and won several trophies in competition... and played on the high school bone crushers team. A country band came along and wanted him to join them playing his mandolin. His Mom gave him an alternative that he would have to give up one of his activities so as not to interfere with his studies. He gave up the football time and was very happy to join The Ozark Ramblers band as this gave him an opportunity to earn a few dollars for his model building supplies. Airplanes and music were his greatest interests. It was his ambition to join the Navy to see the world when he graduated high school. This he did in 1938. new ship and he was considered a plank owner on the USS Nashville. in February of 1942. However, Pearl Harbor was bombed and he was in for the duration of World War Two. The USS Nashville was part of Task Force 16 and beside the USS Hornet when the courageous Doolittle bombers were on their way to bomb Japan on April 12, 1942. He also served on the USS Hoggatt Bay and later transferred to the USS Saginaw including Iwo Jima and Okinawa. He was discharged as a Chief Aviation Metalsmith in September of 1945. He was proud to serve his country while in the Navy and he was active with the Naval Reserve while he worked at the Naval Air Base in Lakehurst, New Jersey. Before heading home after the war, he felt he was ready to settle down and have a family. With this in mind, he purchased an engagement ring at the PX before he knew who he would present it to. The pursuit turned out to be sort of a fairy tale. He met the lucky gal during a dance at the Polish Hall in his home town of Linden, N.J. One month later they were engaged, 5 months later married and they lived happily ever after, forever dancing. Upon moving to Florida, he was employed by Eastern Air Lines in Miami. Coincidentally, in his early days of model airplane building, one of his prize trophies was for an EAL plane model. When he was employed, a picture of the model was featured in an EAL magazine. His favorite employment years were at Lakehurst NAS and 28 years at EAL. He was a talented man and upon retirement, he took up oil painting. His paintings are hanging in homes across the country among friends and relatives. He even composed a few songs. Over the years he did lots of hiking, biking and exploring our country. When he came to North Central Florida and settled on the Santa Fe River, it was one of his had what he called his river visitors at and his little boat rides were almost heaven to him along with dancing and music evenings with so many friends... his favorite pastimes, he considered himself lucky and blessed coming thru his 99 years. Now to his many friends, he would say... hello there, Ive gotta go now, aint it funny how time slips away. On October 13th, 2018, at 8:58 p.m. he slipped away and went home to God his maker who will bless him and give him the peace he so deserves. Surviving are Florence Kubalak Egles, his wife of 72 years, two sons, Richard (Carol) Egles, Thomas (Brenda) Egles, four grandchildren Wendy Egles, Justin Egles, Kristy (Bo) Davis and David Egles, two greatgranchildren Hadley and Bennett Davis.

Norman admit ted to being involved in a sexual rela tionship with the victim, admitted he knew her age and admitted to send ing nude photographs of him to her. Norman was arrested and charged with two counts of lewd and lascivi ous battery on a child, transmitting obscene images to a child and use of two way communications to commit a felony. He is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility in lieu of a $250,000.00 bond. The use of the internet and the multitude of ways it allows people to communicate are dangerous and con fusing. Children often do not under stand that predators constantly look for ways to communicate with new potential victims. Sheriff McCallum urges parents to faithfully monitor their childrens internet use and social media presence to avoid crimes such as this. If the parent in this case had not been vigilant in the supervision of her daughter, this situation could have had more severe lifelong conse quences. I applaud this parent in her efforts to protect her daughter and for her willingness to report this situa tion so that other children may be protected from this suspect as well, said Sheriff McCallum. You dont have to move mountains. You can change the world just by being a warm, kind hearted human being who cares about others. Anonymous Oh, how my heart has been blessed by the good people of our county during the past two weeks. Hundreds of local citizens have given in more ways than I can count to fellow Floridians in the panhandle. I have not been out that way but many have described the hardest hit areas as looking like a war zone. I cant imagine what it must look like after hurricane Michael. For the past ten years our family has spent our vacations in the Indian Pass area between Apalachicola and Port Saint Joe. We shopped at the local Piggly Wiggly in Port Saint Joe and ate at lots of their local home owned restaurants for years now. In my minds eye, I picture it as the beautiful coast that it has been for as long as I can remember. Sadly it may not ever be the same. The red brick United Methodist Church located across 98 from the waters edge is damaged beyond repair from what I have been told and the parsonage is completely gone. Every year when we passed that church I always thought it should be on the cover of a calendar. I read that the good people of Port Saint Joe brushed off their knees and held a community wide church service at Port Saint Joe High School three days after the hurricane hit. I love, love this part of old Florida and it makes me so sad to think of the lost homes and lives in the panhandle. If you havent given and would like to, you can drop off any school supplies or nonperishable food items at the Gilchrist County Journal by noon on Friday, October 26. I will be glad to deliver all donated items you. Our Gilchrist County School District is adopting Jackson Countys School District by providing food and school supplies.Their school district plans to send home food with their children next Monday when they open their schools. I think it is a wonderful gesture for students from one district to help out students in another district. It is also a good time for students here to learn to help someone who is in need through no fault of their own. ---Last week while standing at the counter at the Sun Stop store in Trenton having some Boars Head ham sliced, I picked up a Boars Head brochure with recipes. The Apple Cashew Chicken Salad caught my eye and true to form I started thinking of ways that would improve the recipe. But you really could use the Boars Head Ever Roast Chicken Breast or even a rotisserie chicken in this recipe and it would be really quick to make. You will need two cups of cut up cooked chicken. Apple Pecan Chicken Salad 1 pound chicken tenders 2 teaspoons olive oil Salt and pepper 1/3 cup chopped celery, optional 1/3 cup Cranraisins 1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans 1 Honeycrisp apple 1 tablespoon minced parsley Dressing 1/3 cup mayonnaise 1/3 cup Greek yogurt 2 tablespoons honey 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon salt Wash the chicken tenders and pat dry with paper towel. Salt and pepper tenders. Place in a baking dish and drizzle with oil. Bake the chicken for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. While chicken is baking mix up dressing. Chop up celery, cranraisins, and apple. Mince parsley. Toast pecans in 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Let chicken cool and chop into 1/2 inch cubes. Stir all salad ingredients together and pour dressing over top and toss. Chill for one hour or longer before serving.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters A few months ago I invited a good friend who is an exercise junkie out to lunch and was telling her how I was struggling to get back to a routine of working out. I asked for her recommendations on which workouts were best and such. By the end of the meal, I had some great ideas and was really motivated to get started. Then she looked at me and said start today. Today? Well, I was thinking I could start over the weekend or maybe next Monday. Isnt Monday the day to begin a new thing? Yes, today. If you dont just get going, and keep going, it will never happen. Hard things are, well, hard, and even harder to start! The challenge before Esther in Chapter 5 was one she certainly would have loved to put off, but the time had arrived. The three days of fasting she requested from Mordecai and her people had come to an end. It was time. Today. On the third day Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the kings palace, in front of the kings quarters, while the king was sitting on his royal throne inside the throne room opposite the entrance to the palace. (Esther 5:1) Can you even imagine what was going through Esthers head in those moments? Three days ago she had resolved to this task, stating If I perish, I perish. Today if the king would accept her visit, hear her request and ultimately save her people. Or, would he reject her visit and have her put to death, and likely thwart any rescue for the Jews from Hamans death decree. To her relief, the king held out to Esther the golden scepter, inviting Esther to approach and make her request known. It is interesting to consider the kings reaction to Esthers action; while she was fearfully making her approach, he responds with excitement: What is it Queen Esther? What is your request? It is your request? It shall be given you, even to the half of my kingdom vs.3 I think the kings curiosity was at an alltime high. He knew that Esther had risked her life to approach the king and had to be dying to know why! Her invitation to a banquet where he and Haman would be the only guests had to intensify that curiosity even more. The fact that Esther did not blurt out her request shows remarkable patience and self-control. Gathering the courage to begin Patience and self-control will be the second necessity, but the good news is that both are fruit of the Spirit of God. Focusing on our relationship with Christ will allow these qualities to develop and pour forth. They will bring about excellence and results in our lives. As I commit to working out, I have to be patient in order to build stamina and strength and I will need self-control (lots!) to keep working when I desperately wanted to quit. The same is true when we are to be used by God for His purposes. 2 Peter 1:8 includes these qualities in a comprehensive list: For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they will keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

ONE CALL DOES IT ALL! ELECTRICAL PLUMBING ER0004960 WELL PUMP SERVICE WATER SOFTENER COMPLETE PLUMBING SERVICE SEPTIC & DRAIN FIELD DRAIN CLEANING & VIDEO INSPECTION Letter To The Editor: Biased Information By Rosemary McDaniel At a recent visit to the Trenton Library I noticed two large stacks of newsprint entitled Nonpartisan Voter Guide. These guides were published by the League of Women Losers (oops, voters) of Florida in partnership with the MIFAMILIA VOTA Education Fund and the generosity of Elayne Goodman and Betty Castor. While the group claims to be nonpartisan, they are most certainly BIASED. Remember, this is the group that sued, and won, to change of Representatives District 2 in order to take US Representative Ted Yoho from us and put him into, what they perceived to be, a more leftist-friendly district. The publication begins with the groups biased explanations pertaining to each of the proposed Amendments to the Florida Constitution. Rather than providing unbiased, accurate information your vote. Some of the proposed amendments are complicated, but the best reference source was printed in the Sept. 27, 2018 issue of the Gilchrist County Journal. The proposed amendments were printed in their entirety. You may also go online: FloridaPublicNotices. com at DOS Elections.MyFlorida. com/initiatives If you dont fully comprehend the impact of a proposed amendment it might be best to withhold your vote. The second section called Getting to Know the Candidates submitted questions to candidates for US Senate, Governor, Attorney and Commissioner of Agriculture. Only Responses were printed by the Democrat candidates except for both candidates for Commissioner of Agriculture. The League of Women Losers (Voters) claimed that they had requested answers from the Republican candidates, but had not received replies by the publication deadline. Candidates for the 2nd and 3rd Congressional Districts were not represented even though this publication appeared to be directed to this local area. I could be wrong, but it did appear odd. I have no idea who is running for the US House against Neal Dunn or Ted Yoho. Elections have consequences and we need to keep ourselves informed with the truth, not some biased, leftist publication from the Florida League of Women Losers (Voters). At BES Pre-K, we are learning about living things and good-for-you foods. This week students from Mrs. Carie and Ms. Kathys classroom picked lettuce they grew outside in their class pallet garden.

Page Seven GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2018 Obituaries From the desk of Chairman Tommy Langford Let me again say, this mid term election is the most important election of your lifetime. The stakes here in Florida have never been higher. We all must vote! Ron Desantis is the person we need for our next Governor. Endorsed by President Trump, he will keep Florida going in the right direction. His opponent (Andrew Gillum) wants a 40% increase in Corp. taxes. Do you know where Corporations get their tax money to pay these kind of taxes? You the consumer, every thing you buy will go up 40% to give Tallahassee billions of dollars to spend. Gillum's extreme agenda will kill the economy in the sate of Florida. I am asking each and every registered voter to please get every one you know to go vote. With social media today you can reach a lot of people. Use facebook, text, phone or any resource you have to remind people they must vote for their future and their family's future.
