Love flowers? This SLO County company is America’s main grower of cut roses - San Luis Obispo Tribune
The award-winning company's beautiful blooms have graced such prestigious events as presidential inaugurations, the Kentucky Derby and the Pasadena Tournament of Roses.
Founded in 1984 by sixth-generation rose grower Andy Koch, Eufloria now produces 4 to 5 million rose stems a year in 350,000 square feet of greenhouses. The company employs 35 to 40 workers.
For the past couple of months, Eufloria's staff has been busy working to bring their hothouse divas to perfection just in time for Valentine's Day - the nation's No. 1 floral holiday, when roses make up 84 percent of U.S. flower sales.

State Champion: Send Flowers | Review - Pitchfork
They recorded their third album, 2015's Fantasy Error, in the fields and the farmhouse of Paul Oldham's Kentucky studio; ambient sounds of crickets bled into the mix. Davis is based in Louisville, where he runs the label Sophomore Lounge (the label's releases also include records by Spider Bags and Wooden Wand) and has hosted the terrific festival Cropped Out almost every fall since 2010, skipping a few years when State Champion have been on tour-the main time the band members see each other these days. They continue to book their own gigs, playing house shows and DIY spaces; they remain committed to a name that yields a hilariously wide range of Internet results-choices pointed toward a life in music that isn't defined by others' expectations. They're old-soul enough not to be bothered with careerism, nimble enough to embrace the situations they encounter and make themselves at home.
The songs on Send Flowers suggest being on the road-a band of wandering troubadours picking up fine guest players along the way. Angel Olsen guested on their second record and Freakwater's Catherine Irwin joined in on Fantasy Error; this outing brings Edith Frost on vocals and Christopher May on pedal steel. Star-chart the album and you'd likely peg its origin to some after-midnight hour, gas-station coffee mugs filling the cup holders of a van, when the only two or three people still awake let fly strange, salient thoughts: riffs on lives hidden beyond the lights of the highway.
Silver Jews are among State Champion's obvious kin, and Send Flowers' packaging duly comes bearing a blurb from David Berman: "If Bob Dylan was funny, if Tom Waits was relevant, Ryan might not be peerless at what he does best, which is writing large gregarious circles around his pitiful colleagues in the field." Humor equips the dreamiest of these songs with necessary gravity. Before a recent ... Nov 28, 2018
In the Dark podcast: Supreme Court will hear Curtis Flowers’s appeal - Vox.com
Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall favored its complete abolition.
And a 1986 Supreme Court case, Batson v. Kentucky, established that peremptory challenge cannot be used to discriminate against jurors based on race, ethnicity, or sex. But that's not always a guarantee of fairness.
In fact, in each of Flowers's first four trials, Evans used all of his juror "strikes," including his peremptory challenges, with the apparent intent to remove as many black jurors from the jury selection as he could.
Flowers's appeal of his latest 2010 conviction rests on this aspect of the case, and his petition minces no words about how Evans used peremptory challenges to racially discriminate against him:
Through the first four trials, prosecutor Doug Evans relentlessly removed as many qualified African American jurors as he could. He struck all ten African Americans who came up for consideration during the first two trials, and he used all twenty-six of his allotted strikes against African Americans at the third and fourth trials.
Two previous courts found that Evans's conduct violated Flowers's right to equal protection under the 14th Amendment. In fact, in 2007, the Mississippi state Supreme Court found that Evans's behavior represented "as strong [a] case of racial discrimination as we have ever seen in the context of a Batson challenge."
Now, the current appeal, which has reached the US Supreme Court, is arguing that the Mississippi state Supreme Court should have considered Evans's established history of using peremptory challenges to violate Flowers's rights when it upheld Flowers's 2010 conviction. It points out that Batson v. Kentucky explicitly orders courts to consider established patterns of discrimination by attorneys when they decide the merits of peremptory challenges.
Without taking this context into account, Flowers's lawyers argue, the "unintended message" the courts are sending to attorneys when they use peremptory challenges to discriminate is, "Just be careful to cover your tracks."
The rule that peremptory challenges can't be used to discriminate is well-established in judicial procedure. New Supreme Court appointee Brett Kavanaugh even wrote about the issue when he was a Yale law student; at the time, he argued that the defense team in a case should always be allowed to hear and rebut a prosecutor's peremptory challenges in order to prevent discrimination. In 2016, the Supreme Court issued a nearly unanimous decision upholding the Batson v. Kentucky precedent.
The current Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments in Flowers's case in an order issued on Friday. If the Court rules against Flowers's appeal, it would mark a surprising shift in the way courts are allowed to view peremptory challenges, which could in turn substantially alter the way peremptory challenges work during criminal proceedings. Such a shift would most likely work against the defendants who most need equal protection under the law.
However, if the Court finds in favor of Flowers, it has an opportunity to expand upon the previous rulings to strengthen the limits of the peremptory challenge and to compel lower... Nov 15, 2018

Plant Lovers' Almanac: Enjoy the leaves, flowers and fruits of fall
So, enjoy the spectacular fruits of magnolias, the gumdrop fruits of cannas, the pincushion fruits of dock, and the outsize pods of Kentucky coffeetree, all now on display.The kingdom fungiEver interested in the dark side, we have had a magnificent display of fungi this autumn, from poisonous destroying angel mushrooms to delicious edibles. We do not have enough room in 100 Almanacs to distinguish which are which, so remember the old maxim: There are old mushroom hunters. There are bold mushroom hunters. There are no old, bold mushroom hunters.Not only are there many clear-cut bad actors, but many mushrooms that are choice edibles for some are not a happy experience for others. So if you hope to eat any wild mushrooms, do your homework with guides such as the Audubon Field Guide and the many books and websites, seasoned by consulting with knowledgeable friends, experts, and your own physiology.Having said all that, I have seen a number of interesting fungi this fall, such as toothy coral mushrooms 20 feet up a tree rather than on the ground, to a convoluted puffball mushroom in my backyard, quickly itself rotting in a matter of a few days, and a carpet of another species of puffballs conveniently taking over the world at a fungal workshop I did at Morton Arboretum in Chicago with Davey Tree’s Chrissy Balk.Fungus finale: In New York City recently, I was impressed by the interplay of genetics relative to powdery mildew diseases. First, each powdery mildew fungus is specialized in its host range: the powdery mildew fungus on zinnia will not get on lilac, for example. Secondly, I was impressed while looking at a few examples in NYC of how intimate this susceptibility is: horse-chestnuts side by side, white with fungal growth on one right next to horse-chestnuts with no or very little powdery mildew, lilacs that looked whitewashed compared to lilacs next to them an unblemished green. Genetics, though not everything is a big player in disease.And now for something very different: I turn your attention to OSU’s Buckeye Yard and Garden Line (http://bygl.osu.edu). Tune in to the wondrous story told by Joe Boggs of OSU, talking about what he thought was an eriophyid mite infestation on wild sweet potato. This was right up Joe’s alley since he is an entomologist, and though mites have eight or four legs instead of six, they are still part of his interest zone.Then he thought it might be a fungus, then learned it was white rust, caused by Albugo, once thought to be a fungus, but now classified as an oomycete organism. It is a great tale, really, about diagnosing plant problems — and most importantly about being curious, even about something you thought you knew. Life, and Joe as Alice might say, are curiouser and curiouser.And as Mark Twain noted: “What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know. It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.” Jim Chatfield is a horticultural educator with Ohio State University Extension.
