Retiring County Agent Marvin Weaver honored with a retirement dinner Longtime Gilchrist County Agent M arvin Weaver was honored with a retirement dinner at the Suwannee River Fair Barn on the evening of Thursday, October 25. A large crowd of former 4-H members, farmers, neighbors, and friends were on hand to wish Weaver well. Weaver started his career as a County Agriculture Agent back in July of 1972 in Escambia County, Florida, shortly after graduating from Mississippi State University with a Masters Degree. He spent eight years working in the Pensacola area where he met his wife of 42 years Kathy Hitchcock Weaver. After their daughter Laura and son Ryan were born they had an opportunity to move to Gilchrist County after Bill Brown left the position of County Agent. Weaver recalls that when he moved to the county in 1980, he worked for not only UF but for local County Commissioners Addy Jones, Cecil Corbin, Horace Douglas, Bud Mathis and Perk Thomas. When Weaver arrived in Gilchrist County his secretary was Betty May, his current secretary of 33 years is Shelia Langford. Weaver worked with the late Elaine Faison who was in charge of 4-H in those days. He later worked with 4-H Agent Chris Decubellis for ten years and for the past three years he has worked with 4-H Agent Jessica Cooper. While recalling his 38 years in Gilchrist County Weaver said, Life has been good here, people have been good to me, its kind of like Mississippi, just good people. During the retirement dinner longtime friend and fellow county agent from Levy County, Anthony Drew said through the years, Marvin and I have pulled tricks and pranks on UF/IFAS all the way to the top. He recalled working with Weaver for years and the many meetings they traveled to and from together, laughing and singing all the old Hank Snow and Tex Ritter songs. After working together for years, the duo of Weaver and Drew will retire together Time to Vote!

Suwannee River Fair President, Loran Brookins, thanked Weaver for his many years of service to the area youth at the Fair. Brookins said, Marvin did all the jobs behind the scenes. He would be at the fair at 5 a.m., cleaned up everything, loaded up the garbage and left before we ever got to the fair. Afterward, Weaver reminisced for a few minutes about the old fair barn and his many years working at the youth fair. Former Gilchrist 4-H member and Katie Jones asked the crowd, Raise your hand if you have ever ridden with Mr. Marvin and thought you would die. About one third of the crowd raised their hand. Jones said, He also has the kindest heart of anyone I have ever known. Another former 4-H member and current 4-H Leader, Leslie Faison, recalled Weavers ability to talk his way out of a speeding ticket. He also recalled how Weaver had kept 4-H alive and running well in the county through the years. Later Weaver recalled how much his job has changed through the years. When he arrived in Gilchrist County there were a lot of people growing tobacco and lots of farmers Now there are a lot fewer farmers and the few remaining farmers farm on a lot bigger scale. Another change in farming is the amount of technology used in farming these days. Weaver and his wife, Kathy plan to do some baby sitting, traveling and 4-H Agent Jessica Cooper will serve as interim Director at the director is selected.

Letter to the Editor It may be a total waste of time and effort, but I really would like to respond to the op-ed by Rosemary McDaniel that was published in last weeks Journal. Rosemary starts by labeling the publication by the League of Women Voters as being BIASED. Then she proceeds to make it very clear that she has her own bias. What is bias as used in this sense? My dictionary or inclination, partiality, prejudice, bent. I would like to offer that we might simply say an opinion might be an apt synonym as it is used in this discussion. I was taught that everyone has a right to their own opinion. I had been under the impression that the League of Women Voters was a highly re spected source of information. Ap parently not everyone has that opin ion, but there are intelligent people who do. I was very disappointed that Rosemary chose to presume to take it upon herself to alter the name of the League of Women Voters. Just because the person who is now our president chooses to label those who may disagree with him as losers, it is my own humble opinion that the rest of us should refrain from pre suming to label others in that way. In my own humble opinion, I have to agree with whoever it was who said that this is attempted bullying. I can not see how this type of rhetoric is going to help to make America great again. I was also taught that, regardless of en Rule, --Do unto others as you would have them do unto you -or, in more modern language, Treat others as you would like to be treated -is really the best advice on behavior. Another old admonition worth con sidering is Judge not, that ye be not judged. If we all made a real effort to act in that manner in our dealing with our fellow humans, what a dif ferent world it could be.. Could we please, at least, have a measure of civility in addressing the differences in our biases in public discussions? In my humble opinion that could go a long way towards Making America great again. Thank you. Naomi Hudson Hasnt this early morning crisp Fall air been nice this past week? It seems like I just want to curl up in our porch swing, with a hot cup of coffee and a thick slice of sweet potato pound cake in my hand. What a way to start off a morning. John had burned some old oak wood Saturday evening and Sunday morning the wood smoke smell was still lingering in the air when I made it to the swing. Wood off the chill, peace and quiet, what a blessed way to start the day. I am so The sweet potato pound cake recipe I had been planning to bake started me thinking about the sweet potato crop this year. It seems that this years sweet potato crop took a hit when Hurricane Florence made landfall in mid September. After Florence drenched the Carolinas everyone was talking about the path of destruction for pigs and chickens but sweet potatoes havent been talked about much. North Carolina produces about 60 percent of the countrys total sweet potato crop each year. Rainfall from Florence fell at just the wrong time for the sweet potato crop which were potatoes got as much as 30 inches of rain in just three days. When sweet potatoes become waterlogged and soggy they begin to rot. Reports are that growers had delayed harvest due to a dry summer, hoping for a little extra time and rain to make their sweet potatoes weigh more. But, of course nobody expected Florence and 30 inches of rain. Some say that as much as 30 percent of the crop was lost. Which means prices of sweet potatoes will jump just in time for Thanksgiving. This makes me sad for the farmers and us because in the South sweet potatoes fall just below grits in terms of importances to a Southern meal. Those old hurricanes, Florence and Michael have sure made it tough for a lot of people this year. --Last week I went through a bag of recipes that Momma had collected and found this one. Its not as sweet as most pound cakes, which makes it perfect for breakfast and coffee. Loaf Size Sweet Potato Pound cake 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temp 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla 1 cup baked sweet potato 2 large eggs, room temp 1/3 cup broken pecans Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl mix the pre-sifted baking soda, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. In a large mixing bowl add the butter and both sugars and beat until creamed. Add vanilla and mashed sweet potato and beat until incorporated. Then add eggs one at a time. With mixer on low When the batter is combined spoon pan. Add broken pecans to top of batter and bake for 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let pound cake rest in the pan after it is removed from the oven for 10 minutes. Then remove the cake from the pan and cool on wire rack. Trenton FFAs team of Gracie Langford and Alizabeth Morehouse placed 2nd in the Food Processing Category.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters Recently I attended a leadership conference where the instructor handed out envelopes to everyone in attendance. Each envelope contained a single word. The instructor explained that our envelopes contained a Word from God. Our task was to begin seeking God about this word and see what He wants to teach us. My word was thankfulness. I decided this was an easy one: we all have much to be thankful for and I certainly know that I could be more thankful for the blessings I enjoy. Still, I placed the card in the front of my Bible, committing to seek the Lord for any new insight. In the meantime, lets head back to our Esther study. This week was successful in her attempt to approach the King: When he saw Queen Esther standing in the court, he was pleased with her and held out to her the gold scepter that was had to decide how to ask the King to reverse a decree that he had allowed his second in charge to write and seal using his own signet ring! So, she invited the King and Haman to dinner. Can you imagine being invited to dinner as the only guest of the King and Queen? Already on an ego trip from a huge promotion, having all blanks on a decree signed by the King, Haman was riding high with this invitation. Haman went out that day happy and in high spirits. does that word come along just as everything is going well? Mordecai at the Kings gate and observed that he neither rose nor showed fear in his presence, he was against Mordecai. Nevertheless, Haman restrained himself and went home. Calling together his friends and Zeresh, his wife, Haman boasted to them about his vast wealth, his many sons, and all the ways the king had honored him and how he had elevated him And thats not all, Haman added, Im the only person Queen Esther invited to accompany the King to the banquet she gave. And she has invited me along with the King Is Haman counting his blessings in this passage? Nope. Haman is bragging about all of his accomplishments and taking credit for every single promotion, possession and position. This passage offers the new insight to thankfulness I was asking for. Thankfulness is not bragging to others about how much better our life is than theirs, or what honors we have received. Thankfulness is about understanding how little we deserve the good things that we have been given and giving credit to the One who blesses us anyway. Thankfulness also helps others see the blessings in their lives as gifts from God too. How can we tell the difference? when he says, But all this gives me no satisfaction as long as I see that Jew Mordecai sitting at the kings gate. No matter how great our blessings, bragging gives us no satisfaction if everyone isnt on board with how wonderful we are. Thankfulness brings satisfaction as we understand clearly who we are in comparison to who God is. Anything and everything we have is the result of grace, offered because every heart matters.

Seven Bulldogs registered multiple kills, with Jillian Cassube leading the way with 15, Jill Morgan adding nine and Taria Liles adding eight. Four Bulldogs had multiple aces. Jenna Holley had four, most of which helped blow the third set open after a tight beginning. Liles and freshman Michelle Heilig each tallied three, and Hailey Pope had two.

UF/IFAS, Communities to Team Up Again for Annual Peanut Butter Challenge Start spreading the news and the peanut butter! From Oct. 1 to Nov. 21, you can donate unopened jars of peanut butter to hungry Panhandle families through the Peanut Butter Challenge, a project coordinated by UF/IFAS Extension faculty and volunteers. During those dates, you may drop off jars at your UF/IFAS Extension works with the Florida Peanut Producers Association to send the peanut butter to food pantries from Pensacola to Monticello. Since 2012, the volunteers and UF/IFAS Extension faculty have collected thousands of jars of peanut butter from residents, volunteer groups and businesses in 16 northwest Florida counties. Last year, UF/IFAS 6,222 jars of peanut butter, said Libbie Johnson, agricultural agent for UF/ IFAS Extension Escambia County and co-organizer of the Challenge. In addition to these donations, the Florida Peanut Producers Association also contributes, supplying more than 3,000 jars each Challenge. Why peanut butter? In addition to feeding the hungry a nutrient-packed spread, peanuts are a major crop in the Panhandle. The Peanut Butter Challenge not only raises awareness about the important contribution of North Floridas peanut growers to the state peanut industry, but also helps provide a healthy, locally produced product to food-insecure families in northwest Florida, said Johnson.

Page Seven GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2018 Obituaries Mr. Jack Michael Anderson Jack Michael Anderson of Bell, passed away on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, at the Suwannee Valley Hospice Care Center, in Lake City. He was 78 years old. Jack was born on April 18, 1940, in Gainesville, the second child, of Willis W. and Malvine Anderson (nee Andrison). Much of his childhood, through early adulthood, was lived in Leesburg. There, from his father he and motorcycles, along with a bit of wanderlust, which was manifested and exploring much of the US from Florida to Alaska, and from coast to coast. As a teenager he met the lovely, Shirley Ann Arnold, of Wildwood when he dropped by her house, to visit her sister. The attraction was instant, and led to romance, and marriage in 1957. The two started with little more than a rented, two room apartment, some groceries, and $2.00 in cash to hold them over until payday. Jack had a strong work ethic and he held many jobs in his youth. He started out his full-time working career as a tree surgeon, and later worked for phone and utility companies in Leesburg and Orlando. The major break in his working life was the opportunity to work on an electrical line construction crew, in the early 60s, which through experience, training and testing, developed into a 50+ year career as a Journeyman Power Lineman. He was a proud, card carrying member of the IBEW, from that point to the end of his life. He built high voltage, power lines, all over Florida and throughout the US. He moved his family to Bell in 1972, by purchasing a small farm. For several years he farmed, and supplemented his income by continuing to do line work, usually during and after major storms, where the work hours were long, but He raced open wheel cars most of his life, and was known as an innovator and master mechanic. He spent countless blissful hours in his shop, where he could always be found working on multiple, on-going projects. His work led him to his beloved, adopted, home state of Alaska, where he maintained multiple residences for over 20 years. The move to Alaska allowed him to better provide for his family, and to quench his motorcycles, and race cars. There he became a licensed, private pilot, and purchased and restored his own 5 seat, Aeronca Sedan airplane, which was used on countless moose, carabao and bear hunting trips. The allowed him to land on rivers, lakes and inlets all over Alaska. He would also use the plane for trips with his wife; going on romantic shoreline cookouts, Alaskan bush style, of freshly caught trout or grayling, and A self-proclaimed working man, a Journeyman Power Lineman, and work after retirement, even when starting several small businesses, including trucking, well pump repairs and sand blasting. While living in Alaska he and his wife maintained a small farm and home in Bell, where he semi-retired in 1998. He was a member of the informal Hot Rod Club of Bell, and developed many new friendships with like minded guys who loved cars, boats, motorcycles, and bench racing. and his friends. Though tough, he could also be uncommonly generous to acquaintances and strangers alike, with his time, money, and expertise. Starting with little, grounded by a loving, and strong wife, he was able to pull himself up by the bootstraps, creating a comfortable life and retirement. He was the consummate provider. Together, Jack and Shirley raised a family and achieved the American Dream. He was guided by strong principles and more than a little determination and stubbornness. As attested by his family, friends, and even his foes, he was a one-ofa-kind, and did it his way; at least as much as a man can. It was a life richly and well lived. Jack is preceded in death by his parents, as well as a younger brother, David Anderson (Kathy) of Tifton, Georgia. He is survived by his wife, Shirley of Bell; his two sons, Michael Anderson of Kasilof, Alaska, and Rod Anderson (Suzanne), of Tampa; and his daughter, Roxanne Stone (Shawn) of Kasilof, AK.; his brother, Willis W. Anderson, Jr. of Milton; his sisters, Carol Davis of Milton and Gay Kauf, Carlisle PA.; his six grandchildren Kristen, Lisa, Brittni, Brody, Jackson, and Blake; and one great-grandchild, Chayse; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
