Each year, the Farm-City Committee invites a member of farming community and a member of the urban community to swap jobs for a day.The purpose of the Farm City Job Swap is to bring greater awareness to and appreciation  for each other’s job, said Dana Sanders, Pike County Chamber of Commerce president. His duties include staying current on existing and proposed legislation, meeting with local, state and federal government officials and lobbyists, and updating university management on relevant laws and regulations. Paramore is a member of the Troy City Council and Johnson is a member of the Pike County Commission. Their memberships on governmental bodies, one urban and the other rural, provided the job swappers with an opportunity to discuss issues of local and common interests.Later, Paramore donned his work boots and joined Johnson in a Paul Bunyan kind of world. Johnson explained the purpose and importance of planned cutting programs and managing timber sales. He discussed the machinery that is necessary to move the timber from the farm to the lumber mill. Safety is job-one in the forest just as it is in all other workplaces,  On behalf of the Pike County Farm City committee, Sanders thanked Paramore and Johnson for agreeing to swap jobs for a day and for their outstanding leadership in their chosen professions.The Farm City Committee would like to thank Marcus Paramore and Russell Johnson for graciously agreeing to give of their time to participate in this year’s Job Swap, Sanders said.Sanders also took the opportunity to encourage all Pike Countians to learn more about the relationship between the rural and urban committees by tuning in to the 2020 Pike County Virtual Farm City Awards event on Troy Cable’s YouTube.Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the Pike County Farm City Awards Banquet had to be canceled. However, the Farm-City Awards were presented virtually.The 2020 Farm City Award winners are: Charles Long, beef; Chase Flowers, Fixed Wing Farm, poultry; Thompson Timber Farm, timber; Justin Garrett, row crops; Kevin Ward, conservation; Brock Davis, Young Farmer; Addison Garrott, female youth; Slade Outlaw, male youth; Service to Agriculture, with the family of the late Tammy Powell accepting, and Pike County Cooperative, business award.Sanders said the there’s a flip side to everything. Even though the Farm City Committee was unable to host the annual awards banquet, the committee members had opportunities to visit the award winners on their farms or business site and meet their families. So, the virtual awards program was a positive.Sanders expressed appreciation to the Farm City Committee, Abby Peters, county extension coordinator, and the many others who made this year Farm City Week a success. Farm City Week 2020 will be celebrated nationally November 20-26, culminating on Thanksgiving Day.
