Spring Surprises: Edible Flower Season in Barcelona
Al-Andalus, the territory of southern Spain governed by Muslims during the medieval period. Influenced by the Arabs, Andalusian cooks used rose and azahar (orange blossom) to aromatize water and make syrups, jams and pastries.More widely used were squash blossoms, which then, like now, were typically battered and fried. The practice of preserving saffron flower stems and clove buds and using them as spices also has a long history on the Iberian Peninsula. And in the lavish Renaissance and Baroque culinary traditions, flowers like violet, borage, elderflower and rose were candied with sugar, used to aromatize dishes, or added simply as decoration.But over time, edible flowers mostly disappeared from the Spanish cuisine, with a few exceptions like cauliflowers, artichokes and capers – all of which are technically flowers but rarely thought of as such. As a result, over the last 20 years, only a very few restaurants in Barcelona regularly cooked with flowers.It didn’t help that with the introduction of an EU regulation on “novel” foods in 1997, certain edible flowers that “had not been consumed to a significant degree by humans in the EU” prior to the passing of the regulation were, for a time, forbidden in Catalonia. (A 2015 amendment to the regulation further specified the definition of a novel food, which placed edible flowers, whether wild or cultivated, outside of its scope.)Despite these legal troubles, a few producers continued to offer as wide a range of edible flower...Jun 22, 2017
Cops flood Gables, hunt down man who came with flowers, but shoved officers
Coral Gables, South Miami and Miami-Dade flooded the streets around the Publix Supermarket on LeJeune Road and north to Andalusia Avenue. Some cops wore vests and carried long rifles. Some roadways were partially blocked off. Tosco eventually disappeared at a construction site in the 400 block of Valencia Avenue, Salcedo said. Then, at about 1:30 p.m. police heard a noise. They looked up and spotted movement in an air duct at the construction site. Moments later Tosco was in custody. “He was hiding in an air duct,” Salcedo said. The woman who called the police is fine and the two officers who Tosco is accused of pushing were not injured. (Miami Herald)Apr 22, 2016

The town of Trujillo in southwestern Colombia overflows with lush beauty. On its steep green hillsides hang banana plants, coffee bushes and picturesque trees with white flowers. Behind this beauty, however, lies a historic tragedy in which over 300 campesino farmers were massacred between 1989 and 1992, with the majority of people killed during March and April of 1990.
"It's a very difficult and ugly experience that no family should ever have to live through."
Neither the prospect of a peace accord being brokered in Havana, Cuba, between guerrillas from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the Colombian government, nor the prospect of a future agreement with guerrillas from the National Liberation Army (ELN) has given these residents hope. The majority of the violence that they suffered was at the hands of dr... (Truth-Out)Feb 3, 2016
Dothan Bridal Extravaganza makes trip down aisle easier
The couple plans to wed in October at the Blue Lake United Methodist Church Camp in Andalusia.
“It’s remote, which lends itself to be very beautiful,” Tippit said. “But it can also be difficult to find vendors.”
Tippit said they have to find some of the typical wedding vendors like a florist or food service who are willing to travel.
“It’s nice to come to something like this where you can actually experience it,” Tippit said. “I’m a very visual person. Online you can only see one side of things, and it feels very real here.”
Madrid, who carried a pen and notepad as they walked around the civic center, said they also likely found a DJ to use for their wedding.
“I did come prepared,” Madrid said.
Dothan Eagle marketing manager Stephanie Madden said the Bridal Extravaganza had over 40 vendors offering people a variety wedding planning options from florists, to caterers to venues like Landmark Park.
“I think it’s great to showcase our local businesses,” Madden said. “It works out great for brides because it’s a one-stop shop. They can do everything right here from your invitations to your honeymoon.”
The event also included a fashion show, several door prizes and a honeymoon give-away by one of the event’s sponsors, AAA Travel. Madden said the sponsors for this year’s bridal event, in addition to AAA Travel, were the House of Flowers and the Dothan Civic Center. The event also included a variety of door-prizes.
“We had a great turnout,” Madden said of the event in its 20 th year. “We had even more people than last year.”
Libby Krietemeyer, of Dothan, found the bridal extravaganza very convenient and helpful as she plans for two weddings during 2016, one of her son and another for her daughter.
“It’s so nice to have all this information all under one roof,” Krietemeyer said. “They have some special prices and deals too.”

Wildcats eek out a win against Andalusia, Lady Cats roll
Alonzo Barkley had to somewhat echo a similar statement to his team late in the game, as the Wildcats eeked out a 29-25 victory against Andalusia January 7 for their first victory in the 2016 calendar year.
“At the end of the night, that’s what I had to tell them in the fourth quarter. In a few weeks, they may remember this game, but they need to remember that they came away with a W. We were able to do that, so I was happy about that,” Barkley said.
Both teams had their fair share of struggles from the field, with the Wildcats only shooting an abysmal 28 percent from the floor, as well as committing 13 turnovers on the night. The only points in the first quarter from the Wildcats side came from a Cincere Flowers jumper and a Darius Kearse free throw. They were scoreless for more than five minutes in the period
The Wildcats were able to take a 10-9 lead in the second quarter when Kearse found Dennis Chastang cutting to the basket, feeding him down low for the easy layup. Points in the paint were hard to come by, as the Bulldogs relied heavily on a zone defense that clogged up the middle and forced the Wildcats to take a bevy of perimeter shots.
“It’s a make-or-miss game. It’s about getting st... (The Southeast Sun)Jan 8, 2016
