Sunday Shift: What's It Gonna Take for the Patriots to Keep Trey Flowers and Shaq Mason?
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 6, 2018
Teen arrested for illegally selling palmetto roses stirs controversy
Hand weaving palmetto roses is a historic practice that dates back to the Civil War and continues today in cities like Charleston and Savannah.Adrian Wilson, President and CEO of the Palmetto Rose Company was surprised to hear the news of the recent arrest. "If they focused more on resources and allowing kids to sell roses in a regulated way, it would be awesome," Wilson said. Wilson has owned and operated his palmetto rose and sweetgrass basket stand in the historic downtown market for 10 years. He believes children selling roses doesn't bring any harm to the city.
"The tourism industry is in the billions of dollars, these young people getting a couple dollars on the weekend isn't a problem," Wilson said. On July 2, a Charleston Police Officer was on patrol in the city market when he observed two teenage males illegally selling palmetto roses in the market. The officer recognized the teens because he had seen them for several weeks walking in and out of traffic illegally selling the flowers in the market. Around 1:15 p.m., the officer approached one of the teens, Prioleau. He then attempted to run away and that's when the officer tried to detain him. The police report says the teen fought with the officer. They fell to the ground, witnesses helped pull Prioleau off the officer, and he was finally arrested.EMS was called to the scene because the officer and the teen received small abrasions during the struggle, according to the report. State Representative Wendell Gilliard spoke to Prioleau and his mother Tuesday, and says there's a bigger issue here. "Here we are in a nine billion dollar tourist district and we have young people who don't have jobs," Gilliard said. According to police, the teens would run away from the officer each time he tried to approach them and explain that it is illegal to sell palmetto roses unless they are participating in the city's Palmetto Artisan Program, according to spokesman Charles Francis. The Palmetto Artisan Progr... Jul 6, 2018
John Flowers Organizing Saturday's Fourth Annual WVU Alumni Game
Saturday at 7 p.m. at Fairmont State's Joe Retton Arena. A couple dozen former Mountaineers are slated to participate, including Nate Adrian, Da'Sean Butler, Kevin Jones, Truck Bryant, Devin Williams, Juwan Staten, Jaysean Paige, Tarik Phillip, Teyvon Myers, Brandon Watkins, Herbie Brooks, Brent Solheim, Darryl Prue and many more.
The alumni game benefits a local charity each year, and nearly $20,000 has been donated from the three previous games. This year's recipient will be the Give A Hoop Foundation, which was founded by Butler and benefits children in West Virginia.
Having grown up just outside of Washington, D.C., in Waldorf, Md., Flowers was recruited to WVU in 2007 by then head coach John Beilein. The 6-foot-7 forward grew and flourished when Bob Huggins took over the program a year later, and Morgantown basically remains Flowers' home to this day. He keeps a condo for himself and also has rental property in the University City. And while pro basketball has taken him to Japan, France, Germany, Venezuela and Mexico, each offseason he returns to Morgantown to relax and recharge … and also to organize the alumni game.
"It's going to be a good game," stated Flowers of this year's alumni event. "We have a lot of fun. We've had great crowds, and the people keep coming back, so they obviously enjoy it as well.
"I'm still not sure how we're going to divide the teams up this time," he continued. "Last year was ‘Press Virginia' against the Final Four team. Apr 20, 2018

Local shops see boost, smiles during holiday rush
When there are special events, it makes a big difference,” store employee Adrianne Wisnewski said.
This year, owner Denise Cardona decided to add Sunday hours, but Sundays turned out to be slow days, Wisnewski said.
Holidays sales were up from last year at downtown’s Wildflower gift shop, owner Adele Wise said.
“People seemed in good spirits and it didn’t seem as rushed,” she said. “We had less actual Christmas merchandise but we sold a lot of candles, jewelry and (home décor). Everything sold throughout the store.”
Wildflower is also known for is distinctive card selection, another popular choice.
At Auburn Blooms in Old Town, owner Lisa McNabb said the holiday season was a good one for the florist and gift shop.
“We were more prepared and things went pretty smoothly,” she said. “Even Country Christmas (held two weekends during December) didn’t seem so chaotic. … There seemed to be more people out there, but not as many in the store.”
Nevertheless, sales of fresh flowers and gifts were brisk.
“We sold everything,” she said. “There’s not much Christmas stuff left. I’m now stocking up for the next holiday (Valentine’s Day).”
At Back Country rocks and minerals, owner Dave Holtzinger described holiday business as better than last year for the store.
“The day Trump signed the tax bill, the next two days had happier (customers) than the day before,” he said. “People were happy and in a better mood. I can’t say it was the same for everyone, but that’s how it appeared to me.”
Stocking stuffers were flying off the shelves during December at Totally Cool Gifts in Old Town, store employee Arla Gibson said.
“Every day I worked, it was really busy,” she said. “During Country Christmas, it was extremely busy. I would come in after the weekend, and so many things were gone. We sell a little bit of everything because we have a little bit of everything. The old-fashioned candies are really popular, as are our gag gifts and we sold a lot of socks.” ...

At the US Botanic Garden, a pungent corpse flower brings a touch of the Gothic
By Adrian Higgins, Not to be eclipsed by Monday’s tango between the sun and the moon, the first of three corpse flowers opened unexpectedly Saturday night at the U.S. Botanic Garden and then spent Sunday in languid and stinky decline.By noon its central spire had begun to droop and its ruffled cape became frayed at the edges. In spite of its retreat, the corpse flower, or titan arum, remained impressive as the world’s largest flower and drew thousands of visitors to the botanic garden’s conservatory at 100 Maryland Ave. SW.Word quickly spread on social media that the bloom had unfurled and a line had formed by the 10 a.m. opening time. As the number of visitors thickened, the potency of the bloom’s notorious pulsating odor began to wane. Those who did catch the smell likened it to very old fish. “We did get a little whiff, which was, er, fun,” said Casi Hutchings, who arrived with her husband, Nick Hutchings, to catch the spectacle.The Arlington couple had tried to see the botanic garden’...
