Entry Title Date
Recognizing The Ward Family As The 2014 Santa Rosa County, Florida, Outstanding Farm Family Of The Year September 19, 2014
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"The Ward family farm was started in 1917 when James B. Ward settled in Allentown and set up a farm near Highway 89. Today, nearly 100 years later, the Ward family farming tradition continues with James E. “Jimmy” Ward, his wife Angela, and their three sons, Jamie, Justin and Dustin. Like many family farmers, Jimmy Ward has been farming for as long as he can remember, and he discovered his love of farming and learned the core values of hard work, integrity, and generosity from working on the farm with his father, Lamar, and his three uncles. Since taking over the farm, 24 years ago, Jimmy has carried on the proud Ward family farming tradition, and today, the Ward family incorporates the lessons learned from generations of farming to grow peanuts, cotton, corn, and wheat on their 900-acre farm."
Honoring Judge James D. Trimble September 19, 2014
Andy Barr, R-KY
"Trimble has been happily married to Lucille Coldiron Trimble for 49 years. They have two children, Jami Miller and Jimmy Trimble; and three grandchildren—Travis Trimble, Kyle Miller and Bryce Miller."
Taiwan National Day September 19, 2014
Steve Stivers, R-OH
"Exactly six months ago, on April 10th, the United States and Taiwan celebrated a special anniversary—the 35th anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act. This bill passed Congress and was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter in 1979. The Taiwan Relations Act was crucial in establishing a legal relationship between our country and that of Taiwan."
Honoring James C. Russell September 17, 2014
Andy Barr, R-KY
"Mr. Russell, or Jimmy as he is warmly known to family, friends, and acquaintances alike, is the living example of the maxim that you ought to do what you love. Born into a family of distillers just 3 miles from the Wild Turkey Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Jimmy has been instrumental in the craftsmanship of nearly every barrel since he began working at the facility on September 10, 1954, when he was just 19 years old."
Kentucky Coal Jobs September 17, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Jimmy Rose of Pineville, KY, is well known to many as the voice of coal country. Jimmy is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who served in Iraq, a former coal miner, and a finalist from the television show “America’s Got Talent.” He is famous for his song “Coal Keeps the Lights On.” I think Jimmy put it best when he said, “Coal keeps the bills paid, the clothes on the backs, and shoes on the feet.”"
