Coronavirus hit California's cut-flower industry at the worst time - Los Angeles Times
New Year’s Day floats in Pasadena and thoroughbred horses at Churchill Downs, announced it would shut down its Nipomo farm on March 18. It laid off most of its workers and donated unsold stems to hospitals and nursing homes.But such was the outcry from fans and clients, Eufloria reopened two days later.
“We are starting to bring some of that employment back,” sales manager Chad Nelson said. “We want to make sure that we’re doing things to keep [plants] producing the way that they should, and if and when this market does come back, then figure out how we can handle those orders.”
Coastal farms from San Diego County through Humboldt County likewise laid off most of their workers and went into dormancy at the very time when they usually earn the bulk of revenue — the string of holidays from Valentine’s Day through Mother’s Day. Chain groceries were among the first to cancel orders, said F.J. Trzuskowski, vice president of sales for Washington-based Continental Floral Greens, which grows the “supporting cast” green foliage for bouquets on three California farms.
“There was no forewarning of this. It was like, ‘Hey, stop all shipments starting now,’” Trzuskowski said. “Then with social distancing, all of a sudden the wholesaler can’t be open to the public. It was a very quick stop to the industry.”Mellano said he also was hit hard by cancellations of events such as conferences, particularly in Las Vegas. Weddings were put off, along with their roses, said Eufloria’s Nelson.“Maybe they didn’t happen right now, but they’re going to happen, right?” he said. “We just don’t know what size they’re going to be when they do happen. Budgets are going to be different.”
The California Cut Flower Commission has told its members that floriculture is protected under the agricultural exemption to closure orders. But with the collapse of the distribution pipeline, the clarification amounts to a technicality. Los Angeles’ historic flower market, like others around the nation, is a ghost town. “We’ve got wholesale companies closing down and retail stores, which in some cases have business, are losing their normal lines of distribution,” CEO Pruitt said. “We’re in the process of trying to put that back together.”Pruitt said it’s hard to predict how many farms will fail and which ones will have enough funds left to reboot once demand increases. Growers could switch crops or hedge their bets, as some of the financially strapped greenhouse operations did by leasing space for cannabis cultivation when that crop was added to the California agricultural portfolio in 2016.Cut flowers are a $1.3-billion industry nationwide, though most of that revenue comes from the sale of imported flowers, predominantly from Colombia, according to the UC Davis Agricultural Issues Center. Domestic growers account for about 27% of national sales, down from 37% roughly a decade ago. California-grown flowers account for three-quarters of the national domestic sales, according to the UC Davis re... Feb 1, 2020
Sad, surreal scene in Los Angeles before Lakers' first game since Kobe Bryant's death - San Angelo Standard Times
I was making friends because of that,” said Huitron, who drove down from Nipomo, about two hours north. “I was the new guy in school and had no friends. People saw I was a Kobe fan and a Lakers fan, and it helped me make new friends.”
He said tickets for the game were too expensive, but Friday was their only day off. “We made a trip just to pay our respects,” he said.

NBA ALL-STAR GAME: Teams will honor Kobe and Gianna Bryant with special game jerseys
Others wore their Lakers jerseys, wrote messages on poster boards and observed piles of memorabilia and gifts on the ground outside, including shoes, photos, candles, flowers and basketballs.
This is the next step in a long wake for Los Angeles, whose loving bond with Kobe was unlike that of any other celebrity. It was almost like he was a city superhero, having started his pro career here in 1996 at age 18 and then growing up, up and away but never leaving. He played for only one NBA team, the Lakers, for an entire generation — 20 straight years — and won five NBA championships, generating countless indelible memories for fans.
By contrast, in baseball, the Angels in Anaheim and the Dodgers in L.A. haven’t won a championship since 2002 and 1988, respectively. The NFL’s Rams didn’t return to L.A. until 2016 — after 21 years without any NFL football in Los Angeles. The Kings in hockey won an NHL title in 2014 but don’t capture the public’s attention the way the Lakers do when they’re winning.
“He was a cocky young man, but he always backed it up,” said Jason Nguyen, who brought a floral arrangement in purple and gold and stood it up next to the growing pile of gifts on the ground outside the arena. “We’ve just seen him grow and grow and grow. And you’d see progress and maturity. He just exploded. He just took over and brought us championships.”
Before Kobe, Lakers legends Magic Johnson, 60, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 72, were among the few who might have occupied the same stratosphere in terms of success and tenure in Los Angeles. Perhaps that’s why news of Kobe’s death reminded some of Johnson’s shocking announcement in 1991 that he was retiring immediately because he had tested positive for HIV.
Like Kobe, Johnson then was in the prime of his life and a transcendent star in "The City of Angels." He was only 32 at the time, when HIV was considered a death sentence. Back then, it seemed like a sad warning that his days were especially numbered. But in this case, there was no warning, and everybody’s still trying to process it. Kobe was only 41. He leaves...

Local flower growers busy as Mother's Day nears
Mother's Day sales top Valentine's Day sales.Wholesale growers have been gearing up for Mother's Day since the end of January. Florists in Nipomo say local flowers this year are of great quality. At Eufloria in Nipomo, 30,000 stems are harvested each day then shipped across the country, but many locals don't know they can go there, too, and get $10 bunches."People don't always know what's in their backyards," said Chad Nelson, Eufloria Flowers. "We are open to the public Monday-Saturday."At Eufloria, they pride themselves on American-grown roses. They harvest more than 130 different rose varietals. Women in the warehouses are looking at each stem and picking out any imperfections. Then, the roses are bunched, tied together, and covered with plastic before being shipped out.Workers at Eufloria sort bunches of roses. (KSBY photo)"We distribute our product to wholesale florists across the country," Nelson said. "We also sell to retail florists and then direct to some high-end wedding event specialists across the country.""I wanted to do something that was hands-on and be creative," said Ann Rust, Nipomo Flowers. She's been on the receiving end of the flowers and is a local florist of 40 years. "The flowers that I picked up this morning were cut today and that's a huge advantage," Rust said. Rust says she shops her flowers locally at many places around the two counties including Brassica, Eufloria and Skyline. "It is busier and it's more fun," Rust said. Feb 9, 2017
