Jim’s daughter Jody Jones and son-in-law John operate the place now, with Jim sitting in with the Cracker Box Band several nights per week, until recently.

Agnew, a resident of Fort Myers, is tackling that challenge March 1st, when he disembarks on foot from Jacksonville, Florida, to Seattle, Washington. "This paper I have here, says it’s 2,950 miles, but I think it’s longer,” he said. "I don’t care if it takes me six months, I’m going to do it.”
