Girl Scouts plant memorial garden for fallen deputies - The Denver Channel
Scout Troop 62211 planted flowers for a memorial garden. The garden honors the three Douglas County deputies killed in the line of duty: Deputy Wayne Bryant (1932-1978), Deputy Sheriff Ronald King (1956-1999) and Deputy Zackari Parrish (1988-2017). The scouts, who are students at Mountain Ridge Middle School in Highlands Ranch, created the garden to earn their Silver Award. The award requires scouts to do a service project that has a lasting impact on the community.They chose the Highlands Ranch substation partly because Parrish was killed in Highlands Ranch."There's only (a memorial) in Castle Rock, so we wanted to put one that was closer to the families that they could visit," said Abby Guy, a Cadette Scout.Guy and her fellow scouts Juliana Pepper and Sarah Gross planted perennial flowers, so they'll return every year. The memorial includes a plaque with the three deputies' names, and a concrete block where the sheriff's office plans to eventually erect a permanent monument.There are also small markers with the names of individuals and businesses that donated money, time and supplies to the project.

Florists Convince Companies to Rethink Negative Flower Ads - PerishableNews
When Robert Bryant, AAF, AIFD, of Flowers By Robert Taylor West
Covina, California saw a Facebook post that read, "Get Tickets instead
of Last Minute Flowers for Valentine's Day," he acted fast. He reached
out to the owner of the independent ticket broker - who happens to be a
customer - and brought the negative floral remark to his attention. "'I
know you didn't create the ad'," Bryant said to the ticket broker, "I'm
just asking that you promote your services on their own merits."
after, TicketGiant posted not one, but two flower-friendly messages on
Facebook. The first read: "After buying her Roses don't forget to add
the Concert tickets For Valentine's Day." In the second post,
TicketGiant shared a Flowers by Robert Taylor Valentine's Day post with
the message: "My florist since 1983."
Kate Delaney, AAF, of
Matlack Florist Inc. in West Chester, Pennsylvania, experienced similar

Police deliver flowers to victims of senior housing attack
The Madison Police Department posted photos on its Instagram page of grateful residents receiving the thoughtful gift.
Police arrested 32-year-old Bryant Williams in the case. Williams is facing several charges including armed robbery, battery and intimidating a victim while armed.
The incident happened early Saturday morning when a woman tried to shoo away the man who was loitering outside her building at the Sherman Glen Apartment complex on Sherman Avenue in Madison.
The woman told police the man wouldn't leave. Authorities said Williams knocked one of the women down, pointed a gun at her and took her cell phone as she tried calling 911.
Two neighbors came to her aid and also tried calling 911, but Williams took one of their cell phones. The second woman managed to connect with 911 just long enough for police to respond before he grabbed her phone and took off.
"We spot this guy and started chasing, both on foot and in squad cars. At some point as he's running, he takes this gun and throws it. He's armed at that time and we end up corralling him on the playground, the sports field area of Sherman Middle School," said Joel DeSpain, spokesperson for the Madison Police Department.
Williams was already on the Madison Police Department's radar. He had a warrant out for his arrest in connection with a violent robbery and kidnapping case last month.
The gun turned out to be a BB gun. None of the women were seriously hurt.

John Flowers Organizing Saturday's Fourth Annual WVU Alumni Game
State's Joe Retton Arena. A couple dozen former Mountaineers are slated to participate, including Nate Adrian, Da'Sean Butler, Kevin Jones, Truck Bryant, Devin Williams, Juwan Staten, Jaysean Paige, Tarik Phillip, Teyvon Myers, Brandon Watkins, Herbie Brooks, Brent Solheim, Darryl Prue and many more.
The alumni game benefits a local charity each year, and nearly $20,000 has been donated from the three previous games. This year's recipient will be the Give A Hoop Foundation, which was founded by Butler and benefits children in West Virginia.
Having grown up just outside of Washington, D.C., in Waldorf, Md., Flowers was recruited to WVU in 2007 by then head coach John Beilein. The 6-foot-7 forward grew and flourished when Bob Huggins took over the program a year later, and Morgantown basically remains Flowers' home to this day. He keeps a condo for himself and also has rental property in the University City. And while pro basketball has taken him to Japan, France, Germany, Venezuela and Mexico, each offseason he returns to Morgantown to relax and recharge … and also to organize the alumni game.
"It's going to be a good game," stated Flowers of this year's alumni event. "We have a lot of fun. We've had great crowds, and the people keep coming back, so they obviously enjoy it as well.
"I'm still not sure how we're going to divide the teams up this time," he continued. "Last year was ‘Press Virginia' against the Final Four team. It was a good game, and the Final Four team won. I'm sure we'll have another good game... Mar 23, 2018
Flower entrepreneur's lavish lifestyle, prior convictions described in sentencing documents
William T. Koch Jr., was on trial elsewhere and was granted an extension. Adams' sentencing is now set for May 30 before Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford. He faces decades in prison.Adams is the founder of Flowers USA and another online floral business, both of which he has sold. He is a principal of Saybrook Realty Partners, which has an interest in the Saybrook Junction plaza near the Old Saybrook train station.In a sentencing memorandum submitted to the court, Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan L. Wines says Adams has been a "tremendous drain on federal resources for 20 years" who appears to have no intention of ever repaying the government.As of October 2016, he owed more than $4.7 million in back taxes, interest and penalties for tax years 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012, according to the government, and interest and penalties have continued to accrue since that time.Attorney Drzislav "Dado" Coric said he would be arguing on behalf of Adams at the sentencing hearing."It's going to be a very unique and interesting sentencing, both from a factual and legal standpoint," Coric said Wednesday evening. "While people may not be able to put all the pieces together in a coherent manner at this point, the hope is that after sentencing they'll see this may not be what it seems on the surface."Wines said Adams lived a lavish lifestyle. She described a decadeslong cat-and-mouse game that he played with the government, evading taxes while building a luxury estate, named ...Jan 26, 2018
Flowers ready to bloom at Oxford
I looked up to, and all the figures I looked up to, were basketball players. I had posters all over my walls — Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki ... I loved Allen Iverson." … Flowers was an immediate hit on the hardcourts, becoming a starter early in his freshman season and helping Lincoln to the state championship game. He played his first three seasons for David Adelman and his senior season for Sean Christensen, earning first-team all-state honors during his final campaign in 2011-12. Flowers also was a two-time second-team all-state tournament selection. That freshman success, though, didn't come without some self doubts. Soon after he became a starter, Flowers stewed over a poor performance. "I felt like there was a tremendous amount of pressure on me to be something I didn't quite know if I could be," he says. "I texted Coach Adelman, 'You gotta take me out of the starting lineup. I don't deserve a spot. I'm more than happy to come off the bench.' He texted me back: 'Not only are you a varsity basketball player, you are a starter for this team. Go out there and play your game, and you'll be fine.' "That was a shot of confidence that radically transformed not only the way I fit into that team, but the way I looked at basketball in general. It made Lincoln feel more like a home. I felt like I had somebody in my corner." Says Adelman: "JT was ready to play from the beginning." Adelman says his work ethic helped get Flowers to the top. "I gave him a key to the gym," says Adelman, now an assistant coach for the Denver Nuggets. "He'd get there early and shoot by himself. He'd practice with the freshman team in the morning. He had such a desire to get better." A D V E R T I S I N G Continue reading belowBy the time Flowers was a senior, "he was our most valuable player," says Christensen, now head coach at La Salle Prep. "He was a wing with guard skills. He could do everything — shoot, defend, rebound. He carried our team." Flowers' coaches appreciated him as a person, too. "Very likable," Christensen says. "Has a great smile. Charismatic. Well-liked by everybody. The kids liked him, teachers liked him, administrators liked him." "He's an eclectic kid, unique, involved in a lot of different parts of life," says Adelman, now an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets. "One of the best kids I ever coached. Really motivated, an inspirational guy to coach. He was very smart. When he struggled with classes, it was because he was bored by them. The stuff that interested him, he'd knock out of the park. It's cool years later to see what he's turned into. Just a complete person." Flowers says he feels fortunate to have played for Adelman and Christensen. "It was an absolute joy to learn from Coach Adelman," he says. "He...
