Over Easy: Flower power in the age of aggression - Press Herald
Fighting Redskins any more than we would accept a team called the Maine Jews or the Minnesota Swedes. The list of names of flowers and plants provides plenty of possibilities. And as an extra benefit, the level of violence in our society alone may begin to diminish. It’s just plain difficult to muster up hate when the object of that hate is a rhododendron.
Here is a suggestion for professional team owners, coaches, parents and spectators: When looking for a new mascot for your team, think flowers. Or plants (the Fighting Amaryllis) or cuddly animals (the Fighting Teddy Bears).
You like the sound of the Fighting Fiddleheads of Wiscasset? Or the Mt. Ararat Magnolias?
We could still enjoy our team mascots and cheerleaders, whose job it is to distract us so we don’t get bored. Instead of a man or woman stalking around dressed as a bear or an Indian chief, we could watch a small person dressed as a sunflower, armed with a fly swatter and a spray bottle of olive oil. One thing about having animated flowers or plants or cuddly animals is you have to be careful in dressing them safely, since most don’t have any places for arms and legs.
One more advantage to adopting more peaceful attitudes among competitors is that decades-old grudges and feuds are hard to maintain when the object of your rage is the team known as the Fighting Fiddleheads of Lincoln County, or the Brunswick Begonias, or the Newcastle Nasturtiums.
Flowers have a calming effect on people. Back in 1967, young people were asked to wear flowers in their hair when visiting San Francisco for what was labeled the Summer of Love. That was flowers, not guns or blackjacks or any other kind of weapon.
If we adopt this idea, anger and violence may be reduced, because who wants to hit someone dressed like a begonia?
And then there’s the ritual holiday sporting events tha... Jan 4, 2020
Florist files case against Raj Bhavan for non-settlement of dues - The Hindu
According to the petitioner, as many as eight invoices raised by him between December 2014 and June 2015 for a total amount of ?2.82 lakh remained unsettled for long. Subsequently, the Raj Bhavan paid him ?1 lakh, but did not settle the rest despite sending several reminders till September 2019, he claimed. “Finally, because of delayed payments from respondent Raj Bhavan and financial difficulties, I was forced to stop the supply of flowers... Because of the delay, I have suffered financial loss and incurred interest for the amount which I had borrowed for supplying flowers to the Raj Bhavan,” his affidavit read.The petitioner sought a direction to Raj Bhavan officials to settle the outstanding dues with interest at the rate of 10.5% per annum.

Obituary: Peter Bartlett - Press Herald
YARMOUTH – Peter Bartlett passed away on Dec. 8, 2019, at age 59.
Born Sept. 19, 1960, to Jim and Phyllis Bartlett, Pete grew up in Hampden, Maine, and graduated high school in 1979 from Hampden Academy. He was an outstanding athlete and captain of his football and basketball teams in high school. He went on to earn his B.S. in Marine Engineering from Maine Maritime Academy in 1983. Pete proceeded to start a career in the energy business, which included positions at Florida Power & Light, Central Maine Power, Constellation NewEnergy, and most recently, as Vice President at Competitive Energy Services in Portland.
Pete lived life to the fullest and had a love for the outdoors. He ran, hiked, biked, and skied. His love of basketball never waned, and he regularly played with a close-knit group of friends in Yarmouth. He was an effortless skier, growing up with weekend family ski trips to Sugarloaf, to later owning a ski home at Sunday River. He cherished special trips with family and friends to Vail, Jackson Hole, Alta, and Snowbird. He left this world, enjoying a bluebird day, skiing on fine snow, with his dear friend by his side.
