Narcotics professor, florist found faith
I waited a lifetime to
get to where I am.” Sale grew up in Philadelphia and has one
younger brother, Robbie. They were baptized in the Lutheran faith, but as she
grew up, Sale said she never connected with one particular Christian
denomination. She earned a degree in nursing in 1979 and started work at Prince
George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly in the intensive care nursery, often caring
for drug-addicted infants. She also cared for addicted mothers who were
encouraged to abort. “I said, ‘Why are you making these women feel so bad?’ If
we want them to stop using drugs, then don’t make them feel bad — lift them up.”
Sale loved the work, but after a while was laid off. Her friend encouraged her to work with
detoxing adults at Fairfax Hospital. She told her friend, “I work with babies;
I don’t know how to work with adults.’ She said, ‘Same thing, they just talk.’
” So Sale became licensed through the state as a substance abuse treatment
provider. As her interests and career aspirations grew, her time in the
classroom did, too. In 2000, she earned her bachelor’s in social work and a
master’s in counseling education in 2005, both from George Mason University in
Fairfax. Sale has worked in mental health, in a
treatment center for youths and in an outpatient facility. One memorable job
was working for the state with pregnant inmates in the five county jails of
Northern Virginia. “I was doing social work and counseling
groups and case management. The stories you heard were horrific,” she said. But
she also witnessed amazing transformations — inmates who now are married with
children or who own businesses. “I’ve run into multiple people that I’... Oct 26, 2018

In spring, before new growth begins, prune vigorously, removing thin, weak canes and reducing height to 12 inches or less.Modern roses bloom best on vigorous new growth stimulated by pruning, rather than old, woody canes allowed to remain.

Flowers: When we officially abandon civil discourse

Sunday Shift: What's It Gonna Take for the Patriots to Keep Trey Flowers and Shaq Mason?
Sometime in the next eight months, we will find out whether Flowers is considered in that same vein.

Working against Flowers is that the Patriots' spending on the defensive line has been relatively paltry since the departure of Wilfork. They traded Chandler Jones, the only potential edge rusher since then who would get paid a big extension. The Patriots' cash spending on the defensive line is set to be $19.3 million in 2018, which would rank 23rd in the NFL. In 2019, it drops to $10.9 million, 25th in the league. So if they want to keep Flowers in the fold, they'll have to pay him almost 50 percent on top of their total cash spending in '19.
Also not working in Flowers' favor is the depth the Patriots have along the D-line. They signed Adrian Clayborn in the offseason, and they have Lawrence Guy, Deatrich Wise, and Derek Rivers all signed through 2020. If one of these players, particularly the latter two, take a big step forward in 2018, that may make Flowers more expendable in Belichick's eyes.
The last report on Flowers and his contract status came shortly after Super Bowl LII, when Jeff Howe reported in the Boston Herald that the Patriots would begin contract talks with him later in the offseason. Well, it's later. The fact that nothing else has come out could really mean anything. But if the Patriots can't lock him in to an extension before the 2018 season, it'll get a hell of a lot more expensive for them to make it happen after that. In that same light, NBC Sports Boston's Tom E. Curran noted earlier in the offseason that Flowers is far from a lock for an extension, considering how pricey he could get as a talented, versatile player at a premium position.

Mason's situation is far less complicated, but not much less expensive. Does Belichick hold Mason, who's ascended to become one of the better guards in the NFL in recent years, in the same high regard as he did Logan Mankins? Regardless of how Belichick values Mason as an asset, the reality is he could end up the best player available at his positi... Jul 26, 2018
In the Dark's Madeleine Baran on the Curtis Flowers Investigation
APM Reports, published the final episode of its excellent second season on Tuesday. In its sophomore effort, Peabody-winning reporter Madeleine Baran and her team examined the troubling case of Curtis Flowers, a black man accused of murdering four people in Mississippi two decades ago, who has since been tried an astonishing six times — and, more astonishingly, all six times by the same white prosecutor, District Attorney Doug Evans.
Over the course of ten episodes, Baran & Co. paint a picture of a nightmarish justice system infected with severe potential for abuse of power. Their reporting systematically lays out the myriad ways in which the prosecution’s case against Flowers didn’t quite hold up, or seemed outright manufactured. It also produced new information that may be pertinent to future considerations of the case, like how the prosecution’s sole piece of direct evidence — the testimony of a jailhouse informant named Odell Hallmon — turned out to be a lie, and how an alternate suspect named Willie James Hemphill was never directly put forth in any of the six trials.
The season is over, but the cas...
