Grieving families protest 'duplicitous' website that reposts death notices to sell flower deliveries
An Alberta man who, on the advice of doctors, is trying to keep news of his father's death from his dementia-stricken mother, is the latest grieving family member to complain about a new website that reposts online obituaries alongside ads for flower deliveries.
His fear is that a bouquet and card will show up on his mother's doorstep, and thus interrupt the delicate balance of what she knows about her husband, what she is capable of understanding through her dementia, and how it will affect her.
"I can handle it if she hears it from me," Rick Laursen said. But finding out from a delivery would be needlessly traumatic. He has now put a sign on her front door directing any flower deliveries to a neighbour's house.

Our Town: Solar flower power more than a cute art installation
Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, China and the U.S. harness the sun to a degree that Canada hasn't yet come close to. To boot, Alberta, despite being the sunniest place in the country, is a laggard nationally. If you ask Armstrong, however, he'll tell you that's about to change-and fast.RelatedBusiness is booming for his company, Longday Solar, and, he says, for other local specialists. "We're the new hub for solar," he says. "Calgary has the most sun after Medicine Hat, and people are starting to realize that if you want it, now's the time."Indeed, there are currently several provincial incentives on offer (solar.efficiencyalberta.ca), including for residences, commercial properties and Indigenous communities. Homeowners, for instance, can now receive up to 30 per cent off solar-panel installation costs, to a maximum of $10,000.So what? Well, simply put, a solarized house means that whatever energy you consume during the day while the panels are producing energy, is all yours. What you don't use goes to the grid and gets credited to your account. (Note that when the panels are not generating electricity and you need to access the grid, a charge for distribution and transmission applies; as Armstrong puts it, "ideally, you want to do laundry while the sun shines.") A solar system for the average house in Calgary is a $20,000 investment, but for the next couple of years, anyway, the province will kick in 30 per cent. "That means a lot of people can pay it off within 10 years, and have 20 years of free electricity-just when rates are expected to be really high," says Armstrong, adding that, in a way, "it's like getting free money from the government."Turns out there is still something new under the sun.

'Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower
The bitterroot grows on the dry slopes of the Rockies, ranging from southern British Columbia and Alberta to the high-altitude deserts of New Mexico and Arizona. Dormant for nearly ten months of the year, the bitterroot flowers in May or June and blooms only briefly. The plant uses stored energy from nighttime moisture to open its flowers in the morning. The flowers close during the sunny afternoons and evenings to preserve their energy. Each brilliant blossom contains 60 to 70 tiny seeds, which are spread when the bloom dries and detaches from the plant and the wind blows the flowers across the plains. An enduring part of the culture and landscape of this region, the bitterroot was voted the Montana state flower in 1894. Anyone could vote, no matter age or gender. When the polls closed, 5,857 ballots were in. More than 32 separate flowers received votes. But the bitterroot was the clear winner with 3,621 votes, and has been our state flower ever since. Lewis And Clark are often credited with the discovery of the plant. In fact, its scientific name is Lewisia rediviva. But long before Lewis and Clark came along, the bitterroot was a staple in trade and cooking for several indigenous tribes, namely the Salish people who lived in the bitterroot's habitat. A sack full of the dried herb commanded a substantial price in trade. Documents show that a sack of the root could be... Jul 27, 2017
