Day of the Dead comes to life in Petaluma
For Margo Gallagher, October comes with a lot of emotions.Ever year the Petaluma resident takes the altar for her son, Aaron Gallagher, downtown to honor his memory for El Dia de los Muertos, or The Day of the Dead. At 20 years old, he died after putting up a valiant fight against cystic fibrosis.Those who knew Aaron usually stop by the Petaluma Mail Depot, where his altar is located, to share stories. His cousin, who now has a 3-year-old son, can even pass on his tale to those that never knew him.“Aaron is not truly gone as long as his memory lives on,” said Margo, co-coordinator of El Dia de los Muertos Petaluma. “Our community celebration offers us all the chance to collectively remember and honor our loved ones each year. It strengthens our friendships and support. It’s a beautiful tradition.”Aaron Gallagher is just one of the stories behind the downtown altars – called ofrendas in Spanish. During the buildup to El Dia de los Muertos, which lasts Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 this year, families from all over Petaluma leave their altars in businesses along Kentucky and 4th streets.Through this communal support system, Margo Gallagher’s grieving gives way to joy.

America in Bloom judges see flowers, historic sites, more
City of Mansfield's Engineering Department, and Josh Maurer of the City of Mansfield Shade Tree Commission and Alta Greenhouse employee, talked about urban forestry with the judges.
Maurer said 13 new hawthornes and Swedish aspens were planted in the fall of 2017 in the city.
"I just think it's amazing how it brings the community together," he said of beautification efforts.
Maurer was busy Thursday preparing the floral centerpieces at the Carriage House at Kingwood Center Gardens for the community dinner with judges Thursday night.
"The theme is pink and gold," said Maurer.
Judges are looking at dozens of projects, not just flowers, including the Mansfield Blockhouse, Mansfield Memorial Museum's Daisy Thomas House and the Third Street murals at Crowe's Shoes - and that's just for starters.
It is the second year Mansfield has been involved with the America in Bloom project.
Judges will visit some unusual sites, including The Ohio State University Mansfield's microfarm, the sunflower garden at Fifth and Main streets, the Mechanics Bank Courtyard and the Nature Park at the Richland County Fairgrounds.
Mansfield joins Saratoga. California; St. Charles, Illinois; and Henderson County, North Carolina in America in Bloom's 25,001-50,000 population category, according to the organization.

Versaw said groups and organizations have been doing a lot of things over the last six to eight years and now want to bump it up and do more. "Everybody has been doing their part," he said.
Judges will be looking at seven categories: flowers, landscaped areas, urban forestry, celebrating heritage, environmental efforts, community vitality and overall impression, he said.
Woodard, who lives in West Jefferson outside Columbus, said she has been involved in America in Bloom for the past three years.
"I just love what plants can do to a community," Woodard said. "It creates a lot of pride and the beautification efforts brings together a lot of people in the community. It's very rewarding," she said.
Waller of Arroyo Grande, California, said as an America in Bloom judge she loves seeing the transformation of cities and towns all over the United States becoming the best thing they can be.
To date, more than 250 communities from 45 states have participated in the program and more than 22 million people have been touched by it. Awards will be announced on Sept. 27-29 at AIB's National Symposium & Awards Celebration, held this year in Lexington, Kentucky, according to America in Bloom's news release.
