Young RI organ donor's image will be part of Rose Parade float
Donor Services since the tragedy and the depth of Evan's gift to others, according to Kelly Green, manager of after-care services at the Waltham, Massachusetts-based organization. He is the first Rhode Island donor to be selected."A young boy who can give life to so many at such a young age," Green said.Two volunteer artists in California made Evan's image based on a photograph of him playing in the leaves. It was then flown to Rhode Island for Rogers and Brayden to complete. It will be returned to California, where it will be affixed to the 2019 Donate Life float, whose theme is Rhythm of the Heart. Living donors who have given organs will be seated on the float or walk alongside it during the parade.New England Donor Services will also pay to fly Rogers and Brayden to Pasadena, where they will help finish the float by adorning it with live flowers, Green said."The reason we do this is that it's another opportunity to spread the word about donations," Green said, adding, "I feel like donating gives a glimmer of hope in a very dark hour."Evan died at UMass Memorial Medical Center, in Worcester, of injuries he suffered in a crash on the Massachusetts Turnpike on Aug. 20, 2009. His father, Joseph E. Tellier, who was at the wheel and partially ejected, was also injured in the crash.Evan's heart went to an 8-year-old girl; one cornea went to a 16-year-old in California and the other to a 62-year-old Massachusetts man. His kidneys benefited two men, ages 23 and 47."It was a really important decision we made when he passed," she added. "Evan was a very caring and loving child. He'd be pleased."Rogersr described Evan as an "odd duck" with a taste for meatloaf as well as sushi."He was just, happy, fun-loving," she said, as Brayden listened. "He was a protective older brother. He never went anywhere without his little brother."Green encouraged people interested in becoming an organ or tissue donor to visit www.DonateLife.net.— firstname.lastname@example.org(401) 277-7417On Twitter: @kmulvane

Left Foot Charley Old Orchard Vineyard Kerner 2016
Leelanau Peninsula, Mich., $20
Kerner is an obscure grape that resembles gruner veltliner, but perhaps with a little more body. I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, Rodman's.

Stobi Rosé 2017
This is an unusual wine, not just because we don't see many from Macedonia. It is a blend of the white rkatsiteli grape (native to Georgia) and the native Balkan red vranec. The mash-up is delicious, a basketful of fresh-picked berries with a squirt of citrus. ABV: 12 percent.Imported by Winebow, distributed by Winebow in the District, Country Vintner in Maryland and Virginia: Available in the District at Rodman's, Town & Country Market, U Street Wine & Beer; on the list at Ambar, Bistro Boheme, Hank's Oyster Bar (Pennsylvania Avenue), Sospeso.

Flowers out, tech in: Massive Kendall Square-like development in South End nears approval
South Bay Harbor Trail for pedestrians and bicyclists through the area.The developer has also promised to work with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority to improve bus service or provide commuter shuttles - commonly used in the Seaport, Kendall Square, and Longwood Medical Area - to subway and commuter rail stations.Despite that, neighborhood groups worry
Exchange South End could still overwhelm nearby streets, and they're seeking firmer commitments from Abbey Group on transit improvements - including, perhaps, for help with an onramp to the expressway."We have substantial concerns as a group as to what 1,200 vehicles (the project would include nearly 1,200 parking spaces) added to the neighborhood will do to already choked streets and highways," leaders of the Washington Gateway Main Street group wrote to the BPDA on Monday. "WGMS strongly recommends that the proponent more directly address connectivity issues around the site."
Both the potential job growth and the traffic worries reflect the rapid changes underway in the neighborhood.The development site isn't far from the always-under-construction Boston Medical Center and is across the street from property where a 650-unit apartment building, Harrison Albany Block, is planned.p...

This pretty plant is dangerous — and it's growing in more than a dozen Mass. communities
Giant hogweed is an invasive species that can form huge blisters and burn your skin, biologists say. It's currently infesting 14 Massachusetts communities, and state officials are keeping an eye on its spread.Massachusetts biologists first spotted the plant in Granville in 2002, Jennifer Forman Orth, an environmental biologist at the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, said Wednesday.
Hogweed has recently been spotted in Acton, Blandford, Brimfield, Dover, Hinsdale, Lee, Martha's Vineyard, New Marlborough, Peru, Southwick, Stoughton, Sutton, and West Springfield, and control efforts are still in progress, according to the state Department of Agricultural Resources.

However, the plant has been eradicated in several other communities, including Boston.
"It's a very large plant with a large, flowering stalk that towers over people, like an umbrella of white flowers. It's very showy. I think that's what made people plant it years and years ago," Forman Orth said.While beautiful, hogweed can be extremely dangerous. It produces phototoxic sap that, after being exposed to sunlight, forms painful, fluid-filled blisters on human skin, she said. Experts say it can also cause blindness if it gets in your eyes.It also poses some ecological issues.
Once hogweed - which thrives along streams and riverbanks - sprouts flowers, it begins to die, Form... May 24, 2018
2018 'Art in Bloom' exhibit runs this weekend at Fitchburg museum
Sentinel and Enterprise staff photos can be ordered by visiting our SmugMug site.
FITCHBURG -- Spring has finally come to Massachusetts -- and to the Fitchburg Art Museum.
For the 20th year, visitors to Art in Bloom this weekend can look at the artwork in the museum alongside flower interpretations created by local residents.
Near Yasumasa Morimura's painting of Frida Kahlo is a pedestal with flowers arranged similarly to the ones that appear around Kahlo's head. By Mohamad Hafez's sculpture of ruins emerging from a suitcase are flowers poking out of a pot that appears to be at a similar level of decay.
The event opened Thursday with "Hidden Treasures," a tour specifically designed for patients with dementia and their caregivers.
"We try to activate long-term memory," said Ann Descoteaux, director of docents at the Fitchburg Art Museum.
Jane Epstein talks about how this arrangement of flowers was a representation of a piece by Dinora Justice during the 2018 Art in Bloom event.

She said docents lead the group through eight or nine pieces of art work each month and ask questions leading to conversation that can be sometimes serious, sometimes humorous.
"It can be a very failure-free experience, because art is always up to interpretation," said Kristi Mendoza, Alzheimer...
