This afternoon we have a happy announcement for Jonathan and his wife Nancy but a sad announcement for the the rest of us.

Jonathan Barker, the long time stalwart of the Agricultural Issues Center has retired today.  As you might infer from the title of this post, Jonathan is an accomplished boater on the Sacramento Delta and leader of the local Yacht club.  He and Nancy plan to spend more time on their motor Yacht and less time skippering the AIC crew.
