"Often times, those that are incarcerated are forgotten about because they're not here. When someone goes before the judicial system, they lose family and their children."We wanted to give and be a conduit to show their love because that's what it's all about," she noted.Victoria Oquendo, a member of Grace Gospel Church, said the party was a great way for the children to engage in arts and crafts while enjoying lunch and getting gifts for the holidays.Oquendo, who owns Creative Kids Entertainment, a local arts and crafts business, said she hopes the party will get children in Paterson's Fourth Ward, a poverty hub in the city, more into activities like arts and crafts.She painted snowflakes, Christmas flowers, and Santa hats, among other holiday symbols, on the children's faces that afternoon.Angel tree program is a Christmas Party for children with incarcerated parents in Paterson.

A Colorado baker, a Richland florist: Do religious beliefs justify discrimination?
The case drew an unusually long 90-minute argument before the Supreme Court and more than 100 amici curiae briefs.Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of seminal gay rights opinions, appeared likely the deciding vote.With the Trump administration arguing the case of baker Jack Phillips, Kennedy asked whether Phillips could have put a sign in the window: "We don't bake cakes for gay weddings." He described the administration's argument as offensive to the "dignity" of LGBTQ people.But Kennedy took Colorado officials to task in their treatment of Phillips, saying: "It seems to me the state in its position has been neither tolerant nor respectful of Mr. Phillips' religious beliefs." The justice suggested a state civil rights commission was excessive when it ordered Phillips to have remedial training for his workers.The case poses a basic question: Can religious beliefs be used to get around laws that forbid discrimination based on sexual preference or gender identity?Yes, the religious right has argued. "Pray that the Supreme Court will protect religious liberty and people of faith across our nation," evangelist Franklin Graham tweeted, with a picture of Jack Phillips.No, said the state of Washington in a strongly worked amicus curiae brief."Allowing commercial businesses to use the First Amendment as a shield for discriminatory conduct would undermine state civil rights law and the vital benefits they provide to residents and visitors , leaving behind a society separate and unequal by law," said the brief, filed by Attorney General Bob Ferguson.EMAIL NEWSLETTERS: Get breaking news and the day's top stories in your inbox"Many Americans would face exclusion from a host of everyday businesses or, at the very least, the ever-present threat that any business owner could refuse to serve them when they walk in the door -- simply because of their sexual orientation, or their race, religion or gender".The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal group, has represented both Phillips in Colorado and Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers, in this state.The group's attorney Kristen Waggoner, described Phillips' wedding cake as a "temporary sculpture", and that his services cannot be equated to other vendors."The tailor is not engaging in speech, nor is the chef," Waggoner argued."The baker is engaged in speech, but the chef is not engaging in speech?" asked Justice Elena Kagan.Phillips has argued through the case that he is a creative artist, befitting the title "Masterpiece Cakeshop." The Trump administration argued that under the First Amendment, Phillips is protected from crafting something that "inherently" sends a message opposed to his religious beliefs.But Justice Sonia Sotomayor noted that Subway...Nov 17, 2017
Delle Donne wedding: Cascading flowers, ensemble changes and moving moments
A wedding reading that’s gained popularity in the past few years are the words of Justice Anthony Kennedy in the Supreme Court ruling recognizing same-sex marriage nationally.Cane read the passage that states: “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death.”

Brownsville florist has deep roots
NSVILLE – What started as a business selling artificial flowers is now the only store left in Brownsville where you can get fresh flower arrangements.Anthony Madison started his business roughly 35 years ago, originally running it out of his home in Chalybeate.“I actually ran it on my back porch, and I started out only selling silk flowers,” he said.For a florist selling fresh flowers, a cooler to preserve the flowers is essential. At the time, Madison didn’t have the money for one.Opening Madison’s Flowers in his Chalybeate home came nearly two decades after he was last involved with floristry, he said.Madison got his start in the floristry business at 15 when Marguerite Moody, the owner of Marguerite’s Flowers, unexpectedly offered him a job.“I actually went in one day to pay a flower bill for my dad and she asked me would I like to have a job,” he said.At the time, Madison said he was mainly employed as a “gofer” but learned the basics of floral arrangement.For 17 years, he worked at Holley Performance Products in Bowling Green but decided to change jobs when his daughter Autumn was born in 1981.“My wife wanted to be a stay-at-home mo...

Fragrant daphne: the right variety for every garden
Top dress with rhododendron food (one formulated for pots) in spring and autumn. ANTHONY TESSELAAR PLANTSDaphne 'Perfume Princess' has much bigger blooms that grow along the stems.The pink and white odora daphnes, Daphne odora 'Leucanthe', Daphne odora 'Leucanthe Alba'and Daphne odora 'Leucanthe Rubra' are the ones you are most likely to see at the garden centre along with Daphne 'Perfume Princess' which is widely available this year. Bred by Taranaki plant breeder, Mark Jury, 'Perfume Princess' was released in Australia in 2015 and won Plant of the Year at Australia's Nursery and Garden awards. It has much larger blooms than comparable Daphne odora varieties, a longer flowering season and can even flower down the stem.
Daphne odora varieties form rounded shrubs about a metre high or they are available as standards from Wairere Nursery.There are many other daphnes with different growth forms. Plants can be tall or prostrate, flowers of various sizes can be pink or creamy white but they all have wonderful scent.BLUE MOUNTAIN NURSERYDaphne bholua 'White Ice' has small flowers but lots of them all winter long.Not all varieties are commercially available in New Zealand but it is worth seeking out a different daphne for a special spot in your garden.At Blue Mountain Nursery in Tapanui, Denis Hughes grows several varieties of Daphne bholua all of them upright in habit to around 2m. These include 'Jacqueline Postill' which is deep pink and white, and 'White Ice' which is Denis' favourite and is a feature of his own garden. It's strategically positioned by the front door and flowers prolifically all winter and into spring.At Larnach Castle near Dunedin, Margaret Barker grows Daphne blagayana, a dainty prostrate plant with heavenly perfumed creamy flowers in August. It hails from southeast Europe and throws out long, somewhat straggling branches. Margaret wires the long branches down, inducing them to layer. Leaves from overhead trees supply natural mulch and the daph...
