Minneapolis musical mentor and ‘mad scientist’ Ed Ackerson dies at 54 - St. Paul Pioneer Press

Still, Polara established Ackerson on a national level. He went on to produce and/or engineer albums for everyone from Clay Aiken to Joseph Arthur to the Kinks’ Dave Davies. Hundreds of acts recorded music at Flower Studios over the years, including Lizzo, Brian Setzer, Hippo Campus, Craig Finn, Metro Station, Juliana Hatfield, Grant Hart and Rhett Miller. In 2006, the Replacements reunited to record a pair of new songs for a Rhino Records compilation and asked Ackerson to produce. The band worked with him again on 2013’s “Songs for Slim,” a benefit for Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, who had suffered a stroke. “I’ve known Paul (Westerberg) and Tommy (Stinson) forever, so I think they feel comfortable working at Flowers,” Ackerson told City Pages in 2013. “They like to work fast, capture the moment and spirit, and our studio is designed to make that sort of thing happen easily. … With a great band, the best approach is often to let the energy develop naturally and make sure the technical aspects are invisible to the players.” Soul Asylum recorded their 2012 album “Delayed Reaction” at Flowers Studio. “I love Ed and loved working with him,” said former Soul Asylum guitarist Daniel Murphy. “He made everyone around him more concise and really ran a great studio, where fun and ease and productivity were king.” [embedded content] Over the past decade, Ackerson focused on raising his 4-year-old daughter Annika and making music as BNLX with his wife. BNLX’s “LP” featured a photo of the family’s late dog Wiggy on its cover. “We started thinking about it and Wiggy is kind of like another band member,” Ackerson said in a 2012 Pioneer Press interview. “Beyond maybe an hour, he was with us literally every minute we wrote and recorded everything for this band. He’s even gone on tour with us. We wanted to have something on the cover that was very much part of our world, and that’s Wiggy. Plus, it’s time for him to start carrying his weight. You put a picture of a cute puppy on something and it sells more.” [embedded content] Ackerson continued to make music while dealing with his cancer. “Despite it all, I’ve been in an amazingly creative period musically, with a couple of brand new sonic collaborations in the works,” he wrote on Facebook. “I can’t wait to share some of these new sounds soon.” Mallman said losing Ackerson was like losing a family member. “We went through all kinds of stuff together. When I lost my mom, he was the...

Doctors said she wouldn’t live to her first birthday. She just went to prom with two dates. - The Washington Post

Waterford, Ontario, on June 1. (Courtesy of Alex Daiken) Allie Caren Video editor focusing on breaking news and viral content June 13 Gabby Horner-Shepherd wasn’t expected to live to see her first birthday. She was born with the genetic disorder partial trisomy 13, and doctors said that if she did make it through her first year, she would likely fall into a vegetative state soon after. But 21 years later, Gabby is still here. Because of her disability, Gabby has the motor skills and cognitive understanding of an 18-to-24-month-old, her mother said. Still, Gabby enjoys horseback riding, paddle boarding and zip-lining. And she’s a big fan of Ed Sheeran. Gabby is in her final year of high school near the family’s home in Port Dover, Ontario. Her mother said she is part of a special education classroom, allowing her to attend the school until age 21. Nearing the end of her high school career, Shannon Horner-Shepherd felt that there was one final rite of passage her daughter should experience: prom. “She loves music, and she loves to da...

The perfect poinsettia: How to pick and care for the 'Christmas flower' throughout the season

Experts at Clemson University and Cold Creek Nurseries in Aiken say when selecting a poinsettia to purchase, buyers should look for a full cluster of cyathia, the true flower; the cyathia can be found in the center of the bracts, which are the leaves of the plant that can be a variety of colors.The flower should be tightly budded when the plant is purchased as opposed to being open, which signals a more mature plant, said Cold Creek greenhouse manager Joy Abbott.Jim Faust, an associate professor of horticulture who has been studying poinsettias since he was in college in the 1980s, shared similar thoughts in a news release issued by Clemson University. "... If the cyathia have fallen out, then the plant has passed its peak performance," he said. "Also, the lower leaves of the plant should look fresh and dark green. Yellow, faded leaves are indicators of plants that are nearing the end of their potential shelf life."Poinsettias are available in several colors. They range from red, white, pink, peach, yellow as well as marbled and speckled bracts, but the most popular are red, Clemson reports. Red poinsettias account for 80 percent of the sales in the United States, according to the university. +5 When purchasing a poinsettia, Jim Faust, an associate professor of horticulture at Clemson Univer...
