Woman shares love of gardening, flowers
Don't get to close to her," Shirley says pointing to Marlene, the Newfoundland, with a penchant for drooling on visitors.</p><p>It's a warm afternoon and with the breeze picking up the talk on the trek down the gravel driveway turns to the weather. An early evening thunderstom would suit Knox just fine. She's been waiting on rain all week. Her beloved bearded iris need a good soaking.</p><p>It's late April and it's show time at Knoxhaven Iris Garden in rural Lawndale, the time of year when her hundreds of "poor man orchids" as they are called are in their glory. Shirley has watched them closely for days and picked this afternoon as the best time to show them off.</p><p>And they don't disappoint her.</p><p>The first bed, the Circle Garden, in front of the 1874 Queen Anne Cottage she restored, is in full bloom.</p><p>She points to some of her favorites but is anxious to give a tour of the house. It's still heated with wood and she's filled it with a collection of period pieces, including three pianos.</p><p>"It was almost gone when I bought it ... no windows, no doors, no floors. My daughter said, 'You can't do that, Mama.'" But Shirley did.</p><p>A couple from California bought her last house and she's poured almost every cent from that sale into this farm.</p><p>In the kitchen, she's set out seven photo albums filled with photos of her irises. She's also laid out a collection of gardening newsletters that have written about her garden or published her advice. And she excitedly shows the invitation she's received for her 60th college reunion. She pulls out a Coldwater Creek catalog and flips through the pages until she finds the iris print dress she has ordered. She can't wait. Yes, she spent $100, but listen, it's a special occasion.</p><p>"I'm a Meredith girl," she says proudly of her alma mater.</p><p>The road of life that led Shirley to this farm comes filled with adventure.

Every Plant and Animal From Emily Dickinson's 1789 Poems, Cataloged
Seminary, which she attended for only 10 months around age 17. And in young adulthood she roamed the meadows and woods of Amherst with her giant Newfoundland dog Carlo, a present from her father at age 19.
Although Dickinson lived in a culture that often glorified the exotic and far-flung—in increasingly popular travel narratives and dispatches from scientific expeditions to jungles and tropical isles—she chose to remain at home following her brief education. By her late 30s, she wrote that she would “not cross my father’s ground to any house or town.” Dickinson is often portrayed as some white gossamer recluse, completely divorced from the world outside her bedroom—but that is not really true. The physical circumference of her adult life was small, but its psychological terrain was boundless. She was, as she put it, a “a href="https://books.google.com/books?id=VTHTUY5rUEMC&pg=PR5&lpg=PR5&dq=dickinson+%22Balboa+of+house+and+garden.%22&source=bl&ots=Ih-vUBRr2p&sig=UMhkkxgvJsAXmigji20C0VbGQQM&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjliN-_mszMAhUJ_mMKHU6zDrYQ6AE...

Legal dispute causing tension between fishing crews in Strait of Belle Isle
Walsh was in St. John's to observe the trial in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador.
He said he has fished scallop for 28 years, but he can't lay gear near an underwater cable that will bring Muskrat Falls power to the island.
Nalcor agreed in 2014 to a $2.6 million dollar fund to compensate fishers for their loss.
The Fish, Food and Allied Workers [FFAW] Union argues the money is to be paid out over 30 years, but 71 harvesters have filed a lawsuit asking for a lump sum payment.
Also at issue is whether the fund is meant to compensate only active fishermen or everyone with a scallop licence.

"We've had two years now that we weren't allowed to fish in the zone and we haven't had any compensation due to this delay in the court case racket," Walsh said Tuesday.
He told CBC that compensation should be limited to active fishers.
"Anyone who don't put the drag on don't deserve compensation."
"The union is out fighting fair, b'y, for fish harvesters. That's what they're doing. They're not fighting for anyone that don't want to fish."
Nalcor's vice-president for the Lower Churchill project, Gilbert Bennett, also took the stan... (CBC.ca)Feb 3, 2016
Curler Mike Harris keeps his cool now
Canada -- skip Pat Simmons, third John Morris, second Carter Rycroft and lead Nolan Thiessen -- will be front and centre as they attempt a repeat.
Newfoundland's Gushue, the 2006 Olympic gold medallist and World Curling Tour money-leader this season, will make his thirteenth appearance on the national stage. He'll be among the front-runners.
In his eighth Brier appearance, Quebec's Jean-Michel Menard will try to find the magic that won him the national championship in 2006.
Up-and-coming Adam Casey will represent P.E.I. for the second year in a row and shows potential despite finishing ninth last year.
Jamie Koe of the Northwest Territories returns for a tenth trip if he can get through the qualifying round among Nova Scotia, Nunavut, and Yukon to get into the full Brier competition. Rarely a contender, he tends to upset at least one of the favourites.
Four provinces will hold their championships between Feb. 10 and 14. Mike McEwen will try to make his first Brier while competing in a field including defending Manitoba champion Reid Carruthers. Defending champions remain the favourites with Brad Jacobs in Northern Ontario, Kevin Koe in Alberta and Jim Cotter in B.C.
Saskatchewan and New Brunswick will start their provincials Wednesday and declare champions on Sunday.

What are they thinking? Teenagers, naked photos and cyberbullying
News of the charges in Nova Scotia comes as school officials and police in Newfoundland and Labrador deal with a rash of so-called “ugly girl” polls online.
The province’s English School District has received complaints of six anonymous surveys that ranked girls based on their looks.
They involve five polls reported across the island, including one that made national headlines in Torbay, and a potential incident in Labrador.
High school student Lynelle Cantwell of Torbay inspired an international show of support, including flowers delivered to her home, after posting a Facebook reply to those who named her in a survey last month.
“I’m sorry that your life is so miserable that you have to try to bring others down,” it said.
Michael Ungar, an author and social work professor at Dalhousie University, specializes in building resilience for children and communities. He said it’s best when kids who are targeted can use the power of social media to make allies and fight back.
“It’s a good life lesson. They’re going to have to learn these skills to be able to have this competency to stand up for themselves.”
As for the kids behind such attacks, Ungar said there are uncomfortable questions to be asked.
“You’ve got to wonder how these kids got to the point where they would do such an awful thing. What kind of messages have they heard, not necessarily from their parents but from adult society, that promotes such behaviour?”
