(Photo: Peter Ackerman)Buy PhotoRED BANK - When Lisa Smith took over her business this past April, she was met with the challenge of reacquiring a lot of her customer base.The previous owners of Roses R Red Bank were not florists by trade, unlike Smith, who has been in the field for 27 years, and, as a result of that lack of experience, the business needed a boost.“It’s been a struggle restoring the business to its full potential,” said Smith. “For the most part, I was running this business for the first two and half years that I worked here, but the business itself needed a necessary makeover and other adjustments with the way it was operating at the time I became the owner."She changed the name to Love At Last Florist and started anew.“I made up postcards with discounts and we have tried to do a good deal of advertising,” said Smith. “The way we interact with customers now has really gone a long way to get our clientele back into the store and get them to really invest their time into our business.“We try to get the word out there that the name of the business has changed along with the fact that t...

Services set for Kettering shooting victim
Jessica Combs said. “All of the detectives have been working around the clock.”
Bowers died from a gunshot wound to the head at Willowdale Avenue and Ackerman Boulevard, where Kettering Police Chief Chip Protsman said he was an “innocent bystander.”
Three juveniles — all Kettering students — are being detained by Montgomery County Juvenile Court on felonious assault charges. Because of Bowers’ death, it is likely those charges will be upgraded.
A fourth suspect — 2016 Fairmont grad Miles Heizer, 18 — was jailed on felonious assault Monday morning but has been released from the Kettering jail.
Before the family moved to Kettering a few years ago, Bowers attend Mississinawa Valley schools in Darke County and Weisenborn Middle School in Huber Heights.
Aside from his mother and stepfather, he is survived by his father, Ronald (Amanda) Bowers, Jr.; siblings, Jesse Koch, Lance, Lacey and Lucas Bowers; maternal grandparents, Richard Glover and Donna Glover; paternal grandmother, Cindy Wolfe; step-grandparents, Robert and Julie Combs, Roger Hemmelgarn and Cyndy Konrady; his dog, Chunk; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

NEPTUNE - Though Merion, Pennsylvania, native Elana Knopp considered a career in journalism after graduating from Rutgers University, she always felt the tug of another calling.
“I’ve always loved baking, cooking and experimenting in the kitchen,” said Knopp, 45, a Neptune resident who’s lived in the Shore area for the past 25 years. “Even though I ultimately became a certified English teacher and ran my own tutoring company, I still really wanted to be in the kitchen working with food.”
That desire seemed like a distant dream until Knopp had a chance conversation with Kathryn Phelps, her partner and fellow cooking enthusiast, on the patio of their shared home in Neptune three years ago.

Warm weather means early growth in Black Mountain

Some trees and shrubs are blooming when they shouldn’t, and weeds are on the move like it is spring.
Joyce Ackerman of Black Mountain has a Lenten rose, or Hellebores, in bloom.
“It shouldn’t bloom until March,” she said. “This too warm weather is confusing to plants and people, and it isn’t healthy.”
Jeff Seitz, owner of Appalachian Creek Nursery and Landscape in Swannanoa, said that when he returned from an out-of-town Christmas trip, his sister’s blueberry bushes were blooming and putting out new growth.
“When it turns cold, they will freeze,” he said. “It probably won’t kill the bushes but it will ruin the fruit buds, and will probably stunt the bushes’ growth. Anything flushing (putting out new growth) right now will get hurt by a freeze.”
Seitz says the azaleas and rhododendrons that bloomed in Dec. will not bloom again in spring.
“Both azaleas and rhododendrons set buds for the next season’s blooms in August,” he said. “They have to go through the cycle of resetting buds again before they bloom. Shrubs and trees blooming too early means a less colorful spring. If we get a late spring freeze, which is common here, it means even less color in the spring.”
Most spring-flowering shrubs, trees and even bulbs, require a cold-weather ... (Black Mountain News)Jan 8, 2016
Family, friends honor 'Big' Mike Martin
Boston Red Sox emblem to honor Mike Martin — a lifelong Red Sox and Seattle Seahawks fan.
Signify Designs owner Chris Ackerman designed the emblem, which was changed to included Mike Martin’s name, the year of his birth and the year he died.
“Sometimes, when I don't have the words to express my sorrow,” Ackerman wrote in a Facebook post, “I will do the only thing I can do: design.”
After what Kathie Martin described as her husband’s “38 years of confirmed bachelorhood,” Mike Martin found his soulmate in Kathie and the pair were married Jan. 19, 2002 in Apple Valley.
“He often noted how I ‘messed up’ his plan to move to a cave in Colorado and become a hermit,” Kathie Martin joked. “Mike was a devoted and loving husband. I never opened a door, put on my own coat, (or) doubted his deep and abiding love for me.”
A resident of Apple Valley since he was 8 years old, Mike Martin attended Rancho Verde Elementary, the former Apple Valley Junior High School and Apple Valley High School, graduating in 1981.
He then attended San Diego State University, completed his bachelor’s degree at Cal State San Bernardino and achieved the rare feat of a dual major in English and mathematics.
Countless loved ones described Mike Martin on Facebook as a “gentle giant” and Kathie Martin said his gruff exterior was a poor camouflage for a sensitive, insightful man who was a voracious reader and enjoyed arts and culture.
“We were season ticket holders to the Falcon Theater in Toluca Lake since its inaugural season in 2002,” Kathie Martin said, “and made an annual trek to Laguna for the Pageant of the Masters and art festivals. He took great joy in purchasing original art directly from the artists, and would spend time to understand their story when doing so.”
Mike Martin leaves behind loving memories that will be cherished by his wife and stepchildren, Jill and Nick Baxter.
A celebration of Mike’s life will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at Sunset Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary, 24000 Waalew Road in Apple Valley. Guests are encouraged to wear their favorite sports team attire or join Team Red Sox in honor of Mike. A reception will follow at the Apple Valley Conference Center at 14975 Dale Evans Parkway.
In lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged to the Apple Valley Community Resource Foundation (SAVE) in support of special events and cultural arts in Apple Valley. Donations can be made by check and sent to SAVE, 14955 Dale Evans Parkway, Apple Valley, CA 92307, or online at www.AppleValleyEvents.org.
