America in Bloom judges see flowers, historic sites, more

Richland County Fairgrounds. Mansfield joins Saratoga. California; St. Charles, Illinois; and Henderson County, North Carolina in America in Bloom's 25,001-50,000 population category, according to the organization. More Mansfield news: • Entertainment: Mansfield Children's Festival is Saturday • As part of museum renovation, Mansfield UMADAOP seeks oral interviews • Newsies 'a dream come true' for young actor Versaw said groups and organizations have been doing a lot of things over the last six to eight years and now want to bump it up and do more. "Everybody has been doing their part," he said. Judges will be looking at seven categories: flowers, landscaped areas, urban forestry, celebrating heritage, environmental efforts, community vitality and overall impression, he said. Woodard, who lives in West Jefferson outside Columbus, said she has been involved in America in Bloom for the past three years. "I just love what plants can do to a community," Woodard said. "It creates a lot of pride and the beautification efforts brings together a lot of people in the community. It's very rewarding," she said. Waller of Arroyo Grande, California, said as an America in Bloom judge she loves seeing the transformation of cities and towns all over the United States becoming the best thing they can be. To date, more than 250 communities from 45 states have participated in the program and more than 22 million people have been touched by it. Awards will be announced on Sept. 27-29 at AIB's National Symposium & Awards Celebration, held this year in Lexington, Kentucky, according to America in Bloom's news release. lwhitmir@nncogannett.com 4190521-7223 Twitter: @LWhitmir ...

Judges from national organization will evaluate Mansfield in Bloom's efforts

Mansfield joins Saratoga. California; St. Charles, Illinois; and Henderson County, North Carolina in the 25,001-50,000 population category, according to the AIB organization. Versaw said groups and organizations have been doing a lot of things over the last six to eight years and now want to bump it up and do more. "Everybody has been doing their part," he said. "They (the judges) will spend two days looking at your community and they will be looking at six different categories and give you points one each one of those categories," he said. Those categories are flowers, landscaped areas, urban forestry, celebrating heritage, environmental efforts, community vitality and overall impression, he said. Professional volunteer judges from the America in Bloom (AIB) national awards program coming to Mansfield are Teresa Woodard and Laurie Waller. Woodard writes and produces garden and lifestyle stories for regional and national magazines. She blogs with two other garden writers at www.heartland-gardening.com and recently published a book with them. She is a Master Gardener Volunteer for The Ohio State University Extension, editor of the Master Gardener Training Manual and winner of the 2015 Ohio Outstanding Master Gardener Award. She gardens on two acres at her home in a conservation community west of Columbus, where, she nurtures prairie strips, an edibles garden and perennial beds. After 25 years as a teacher, Waller retired and moved to Arroyo Grande, California, where her husband Richard was born and raised. The Waller family were flower seed growers throughout the 20th century. Curious about coastal California horticulture, Laurie began volunteering with the local America In Bloom group, Arroyo Grande In Bloom, an all-volunteer, non-profit group. She completed the University of California Master Gardener program, where she currently volunteers as a helpline consultant. Under Laurie's stewardship, the floral displays program has flourished and been recognized for top honors within AIB. To date, more than 250 communities from 45 states have participated in the program and more than 22 million people have been touched by it. Awards will be announced on Sept. 27-29 at AIB's National Symposium & Awards Celebration, held this year in Lexington, Kentucky, according to America in Bloom's news release. lwhitmir@nncogannett.com 4190521-7223 Twitter: @LWhitmir ...

April Showers Can Be Good For May Flowers, But Not Consumers ...

While these types of accidents are unexpected, they certainly aren’t uncommon. Another customer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina was up late studying for exams one spring evening when she finally decided to go to bed. After shutting her laptop off and quickly falling asleep, a heavy rainstorm ensued overnight and rain leaked in through the window. When the customer woke up in the morning, her laptop was sitting in a puddle of rain on her desk and it was inoperable.A third customer in Wilmington, North Carolina had experienced a week with nothing but torrential rainstorms. When the weekend rolled around, his dog couldn’t wait to go on a walk. After a quick lap around the block, the dog ran back inside soaking wet and began to shake dry in close proximity to the customer’s open laptop. As a result, his laptop became soaked and would not power on.“With almost twenty percent of claims received from college students coming from liquid damage, it is no surprise that rainy spring weather contributes to so many electronic mishaps,” says Safeware’s Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “Fortunately, our protection plans are created with these incidents in mind and we are proud to offer comprehensive coverage for students.

Out of flowers? Flour? Businesses contend with supply crises

Fink, whose company is located in Pittsboro, North Carolina.That happened as the U.S. economy was still suffering after the Great Recession, making it hard to find new business and make up the revenue. Fink developed new products including motorized lifts used to store flat panel TVs in decorative cabinets. He also increased his online business."You just don't give up — we're a small entrepreneurial business," he says.While shortages are an obstacle for many small businesses, some owners have actually made materials in short supply the heart of their business.Albany Woodworks uses reclaimed wood from demolished houses, barns and other buildings to make flooring and paneling. When Richard Woods started the business more than 40 years ago, reclaimed wood was easy to find and he had no competition. But demand has grown from renovating homeowners and groups restoring historical sites, and so has the number of rival firms."We are constantly having to network to find new suppliers that may have quality wood," says Woods, whose company is located in Tickfaw, Louisiana. His suppliers are demolition companies, and most sites with the wood he needs are in industrial revolution-era towns in New England and along the Mississippi River. "We go wherever we have to," Woods says.At Widespread Electrical Sales, owner Scott Vaughn also travels the country in search of equipment that may be decades old."We rely on big industrial plants that are closing, buy the right to their power distribution systems, and rip them down," says Vaughn, whose company is based in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He also gets obsolete equipment from decommissioned call centers and data centers.Widespread Electric sells about half a million breakers a year, with some costing as much as $25,000. The cost is worth it for a business that otherwise would have to retrofit its power systems.Supply shortages are an inherent part of the electrical business, Vaughn says."It's directed by the manufacturers themselves," he says. "They put out a product line and sell it with a planned obsolescence program behind it."_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .
