Living history: Wasserman's Flowers & Gifts is a story about Muskegon's past—and future
Americanize” the name, Troy explains), who came to the United States at the age of 19 in 1872 and opened Wasserman’s Flower Shop with his wife, Amelia, in 1880. It’s a story about following dreams, about the ebb and flow of the city, about making it through the Great Depression and leaving the store to fight in World War II, about moving the shop because its home on Western Avenue, where the flower store was located for 94 years, was torn down to make way for the downtown mall in the 1970s. It’s about five generations of the Wasserman family embracing the city they’ve always known as home, about them loving, supporting, and celebrating Muskegon and its residents. “It’s amazing when I watch the History Channel or see a documentary and it shows what was happening in the country in the 1880s and 90s, and I say, ‘Oh my gosh, the flower shop was open then,’” Angie says as she sits in the store’s back room and flips through a binder teeming with the shop’s history: news clippings from decades past, black-and-white photos of relatives, obituaries of the people who once filled Wasserman’s, receipts from flowers regularly purchased by lumber barons Charles Hackley and Thomas Hume, and many more details that give a glimpse as to what 137 years means in the life of a family, a store, and a city. “It was open through the Depression, the World Wars,” Angie says. “It’s hard to wrap your head around. Our everyday livelihood goes back that long into the history of the United States and the community. And so many things have changed. There’s a wow factor for me; that’s a lot of years.”Louis Wasserman, standing at right in the back, in his greenhouse located at Irwin and Terrace around the turn of the 20th century. The beginning: Dreams of Louis Wasserman Louis Wasserman was born in 1853 in Germany and was one of three million people who, prompted by low wages and a lack of employment opportunities, left the country between 1862 and 1890 in search of a better life abroad. The great-great grandfather of Angie and Troy, Louis came to the U.S. in 1872 and first settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he met and married Amelia. Together, they moved in 1874 to Muskegon, where Louis worked as a tailor while cultivating his passion during off hours: his garden. Encouraged by his wife to leave tailoring and pursue his dream of working with flowers, Louis built what’s believed to be Muskegon’s first greenhouse on the corner of Irwin Avenue and Terrace Street. As Louis grew and tended to the rows of plants, Amelia would sell the flowers that were quickly embraced by the city. Wasserman’s makes one of its first media appearances in a Muskegon Chronicle section titled “Local Events” published on May 21, 1886. In the sea of text that were newspapers in the 1800s, the Chronicle gives a rundown of a variety of events in the city, including the funeral for five-year-old Elsa Kanitz, H.B. Smith opening a new grocery store on Jackson Street, and frustrations over a blustery day. (“The South Wind has been enjoying the fun of kicking up a dust today, but he’s the only chap that enjoys it. Pedestrians have found it extremely disagreeable going about the streets collecting sawdust and splinters in their optics,” the newspaper writes.) In the midst of these details, the newspaper describes a welcome scene at Wasserman’s. “A large cactus plant in full bloom at W... (Rapid Growth)Mar 30, 2017

Michael Shikany Funeral Services Tomorrow as the Miami Culinary World Remembers Him
I said not bad for an $80 entree and he laughed and said whatever — go paint more plates!"Nicole Amelia, brand manager for Double Cross Vodka, responded to New Times' story regarding the chef's love of tweezers by showing a screenshot of Shikany with the caption "Tweezers is back." Amelia said, "I wanted to share this with you because we had a joke about the 'tweezers' which you referenced. In times like this, a smile is everything." The most amazing story of all came from Gratzi Ela, who met the chef at an event in 2014. Her son Lucas was diagnosed with cancer when he was 8 years old, and she had trouble finding food he wanted to eat. "Michael was there for us. He gave me amazing culinary advice for Lucas," Ela said. Lucas, now 12, is a published author and runs his own foundation, the Lucas Ryan Foundation. Ela said Michael planned to write a children's cookbook, "basically, how to make very healthy food taste amazing so kids would be interested in eating healthy." The proceeds would be donated to charities that help kids fight cancer.According to an obituary shared on Legacy.com, services for Shikany will be held Saturday, March 18, at 11 a.m. at the Granada Presbyterian Church in Coral Gables. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in his name to Women of Tomorrow, the Chapman Partnership, and Miami Lighthouse for the Blind. (Miami New Times)Feb 9, 2017

Heart-Shaped Rose Blooms For Valentine's Day At Brookfield Flower Shop
Day, a second favorite are tulips.
“I think people like the tulip because it’s a spring flower so it gets people in the mood for spring,” said Amelia Soderquist of Newtown, who owns the business.
“They're a breed of their own,” she said, coming in many different colors such as pink, purple, yellow and white.
If properly cared for, roses can last up to a week-and-a-half, while tulips should last five days.
When caring for flowers, “be sure to give them fresh water every day. The water should be cold and filled to the rim of the vase. ... If you don’t replenish the water, the stems will die faster," Soderquist said.
The three-person shop arranges all of its bouquets on the premises, by hand.
Although Valentine's Day is still two weeks away, the flower shop is already beginning to get orders.
“Last year, we made 125 arrangements for Valentine’s Day. We had a line out the door the entire week of Valentine’s Day,” Soderquist recalled.
Her customers are as young as teenagers and range in age up to senior citizens.
“Every year, I have 200 roses that I save for the 'last-minute boys,'" as Soderquist calls them -- "and they know that."
According to Soderquist, independent flower shops are becoming dinosaurs — as they are replaced by large online corporations.
However, she said, there are many advantages to purchasing flowers from independently owned stores.
“When flowers are shipped out from a large online corporation, they are in boxes and are transferred onto a truck that has no heating or cooling system, which can harm flowers.
“If the person who is receiving the flowers isn't home, the flowers are left outside to freeze," she said.
At Flowers By Whisconier, the delivery van is kept inside the 2,000-square-foot heated warehouse.
Also, before delivering the flowers, "We always call the person w... (Wilton Daily Voice)
