Columnist, AG debate issues of Arlene's Flowers court case

The Unites States Supreme Court has had two chances to answer these questions in recent months - the Masterpiece Bakery v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission and the Arlene's Flowers Inc. v. Washington cases. However, the court either opted to rule more narrowly, or did not rule at all, and declined to answer the broader questions that came with each case. The defendant in the Arlene's Flowers case, Barronelle Stutzman, lost the suit when the state Supreme Court ruled Stutzman discriminated against a gay man when she refused to arrange flowers for his wedding because of her religious beliefs. Stutzman appealed to the Supreme Court, but the high court punted the case back to the state earlier this summer. Columnist Rich Elfers wrote a column ("Expect WA court to reverse Arlene's Flowers decision," printed July 4 in the Courier-Herald) about the case. Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson wrote a letter to the Courier-Herald on July 20, challenging some of Elfers' facts and characterizations in his column. Ferguson's letter, as well as a response column by Elfers, are printed below. While unusual in its presentation, it is my opinion that the nuances of the Arlene's Flowers case are best presented in simultaneous debating pieces, to give readers the best chance to form their own opinion on the matters at hand. Both Ferguson a...

Jeff Mitton: Elaborate elephant's heads flowers require buzz pollination

In Colorado, the primary pollinators are at least seven species of bumble bees in the genus Bombus. Advertisement Pollination biologists described specific bumble bee behaviors and floral morphology that convincingly suggest a long-term pattern of coevolution between bees and flowers. The flower has two lateral petals that suggest ears, and a median lower petal. Two upper petals are fused dorsally but not ventrally to form a galea (the elephant's domed forehead) with a rostral extension (the elephant's trunk). The style, or female portion of the flower, extends through the trunk so that the stigma, which receives pollen, protrudes from the end of the trunk. The four anthers are hidden in the galea and they shed pollen through a small ventral opening at the base of the elephant's trunk. How does the bee coax pollen from the anthers, which are inside the galea, or the elephant's head? It lands on the trunk, with its antennae reaching toward the galea. It then uses its mandibles to grasp the median ridge on the forehead, while pulling the lateral petals (ears) with its anterior legs. This brings the rostrum (trunk) beneath the bee so that its end (stigma) touches the center of the bee's abdomen. The bee then vibrates its wings at a rate almost twice the rate it uses in flight. Buzzing wings vibrate the galea, spilling pollen that falls to the lower petal and splashes against the bee's abdomen and also forms an enveloping cloud. This unusual technique is called buzz pollination. The bee grooms the pollen from its body and packs it into corbiculae, the pollen baskets on its back legs. The same bumble bees may also be harvesting pollen with buzz pollination from a second, intermingled species called shooting star, Dodecatheon pulchellum, which also has an unusual shape, though very different from elephant's heads. While hanging from the sharp point of the shooting star, they buzz, causing pollen to be released and shower down on them. Once again, the bee grooms pollen from its body, transferring it to the pollen baskets. Elephant heads and shooting stars are commonly found intermixed and they flower at the same time. Bees carrying shooting star pollen also had elephant head pollen in their baskets, suggesting that mixed loads of pollen were delivered to each species, running ...

Loveland couple's gardens designated a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Foundation

Dean said. "Life is just more fulfilling with wildlife around." It was, in part, that love of wildlife that attracted Dean and Barbara to Colorado when it came time for retirement. But while the home they purchased boasted a beautiful golf course setting and clear mountain views, the sloping area behind their home that is now the centerpiece of the garden was "originally nothing but grass and concrete." Advertisement So Dean set about using his lifetime of gardening and wildlife knowledge to create a garden consisting of dozens of plants as well as several bird feeders, birdbaths and other elements necessary for birds to live. However, he said two of the most important elements are actually mint and berry plants, which are both essential to attracting birds in particular. A mother house wren flies away from her nest, which used to be a bird feeder, in Dean and Barbara Dobbins' Loveland backyard on June 5. Their yard is recognized as a certified wildlife habitat by the Natural Wildlife Federation. (Jenny Sparks / Loveland Reporter-Herald) According to the National Wildlife Foundation, yards, apartment balconies, schools, business parks and a variety of other settings can be turned into suitable wildlife sanctuaries. For more information about ways to do so and the NWF certification process visit nwf.org/Garden-For-Wildlife. "They have berries to eat and then, obviously, they also love nectar of all the flowers," he said. "That's why hummingbirds love it here." Those elements have made the garden a paradise for hummingbirds, house finches, Bullock's orioles and even Baltimore orioles, which he said are very rare. "If you come here early in the morning the birds are galore and singing," he said. "They love to stand on that birdhouse there and sing." The garden's many flowers also provide an important habitat for the bees and other pollinators that are necessary for plants to thrive. Dean said his habitat has also been known to attract another distinctive and much larger species: elk. He said he's seen as many as seven in the gardens and dozens more in the fields behind house in the spring and fall. He did acknowledge that the gardens have required a great amount of work but said the workload is also decreasing as now he mainly just needs to prune some of the plants. "I figure if you can do a habitat on the seventh fairway of Mariana Butte Golf Course you can do it anywhere," he said. "And that's the message I am trying to send to people, that you don't have to have 200...
