He completed a semester of college in Kearney, picked apples in Colorado, was a carpenter's helper, worked with poultry, tried out fora farm club of the St. Louis Cardinals, and went hungry sometimes as it was the Great Depression. He later learned banking at an uncle's bank in Ilwako, Washington, and helped his parents move off the Nebraska farm in a packed car with little more than the change in their pockets and had to leave his beloved dog, Fritz, behind in the care of a tenant. By 1940 he joined his parents and other relatives in San Diego and did clerical work for Cadahy Packing Company.It was during a day trip to Tijuana when he and his high school sweetheart and future wife, Anita, learned of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Located in Newark Valley, New York, NJW is an 9 year old company, which has been serving florists in the Central, Finger Lakes and Southern Tier regions of New York. The business will be consolidated into DVFlora, a division of DVFG.
The customers of NJW will be served from the current DVFlora Sales and Distribution Centers in Wilkes- Barre and Syracuse. Nathan Little, owner at NJW commented; “Cinnamon and I have been blessed to be able to serve the floral industry for the past nine years.

Did They Wear Flowers in Their Hair? See the Happy Hippies in 1967
We’re living through the summer of golden anniversaries: The Detroit and Newark rebellions occurred 50 years ago this season, as did the releases of “Sgt. Peppers” and “Bonnie and Clyde.” And then, overarching all, there was San Francisco’s 1967 Summer of Love, subject of Jack O’Connell’s on-site report, “Revolution.”Mr. O’Connell’s grandly titled documentary — advertised “for adults only” when it opened in New York in 1968 — has been digitally restored for showings at Anthology Film Archives on Saturday and Sunday. It is a prize artifact. While images of hippies and be-ins may be overfamiliar, an 87-minute immersion in countercultural exuberance can still be disorienting. In its blithe sense of social breakdown, “Revolution” would make an excellent double bill with George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead” — the yin to the yang of the period’s most evocative American movie.A tour of Haight-Ashbury in “Revolution” is straight travelogue — bare feet, psychedelic posters, handmade notices pasted up by desperate parents, weird pets, garishly painted cars.

In The Garden | Two lily shows this weekend at Kingwood
For complete information, visit www.kingwoodcenter.org or call 419-522-0211.Summer garden careMegan Fleischer, gardens manager at Dawes Arboretum in Newark, offers important tips for summer garden care – they are worth sharing.Watering. The most important summer task is watering plants. Even perennials need watering periodically. Deep and infrequent watering of perennials during drought periods helps maintain vigor and sustain blooms.If you have a source of rain water, take advantage of it. The cost is nil and it is nature’s choice.Deadheading. All too often an overlooked step to encourage more blooms is deadheading. It is the act of removing spent flower heads to promote additional blooms. Doing this encourages the plant to put more energy into the production of more beautiful flowers. For abundant roses, deadheading is very important. If not deadheaded, the rose plant produces seedheads that takes energy away from new flower production.Weeding. Another routine task for all gardens. A weedy garden is a mess and will only get worse over time. Weeds are fierce competitors with garden plants and often is one of the major causes of garden failure. Weeds tend to crowd out flowers or vegetable production. They compete for water, fertilizer, space and light.If you can, learn to identify and know something about the habits of the weed. One of the most common weeds is Canada thistle. It’s a tall weed with many sharp spines and is difficult to control.It is a strong survivor because the plant has a deep taproot. Without root removal, the root system grows and produces more weeds. In addition, it produces flowers that produce seeds and more weeds.Many gardeners use an herbicide for control, or you can keep cutting off the plant so it doesn’t produce seeds and starve the root system. This becomes almost a full-time job and all too often the gardener gives up.If you need help with weed control or identification, call the Dawes Plant Clinic at 800-44-DAWES. A trained staff member will help you find the information you need.Richard Poffenbaugh is a retired biology teacher and active home gardener since 1960. He is a member of the Mansfield Men's Garden Club and was editor of the club newsletter (... (Mansfield News Journal)Jun 2, 2017
Meet Adriana Quiñones, interim director of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden
She was living in the country, felt “bored to death” and wanted something to do. She volunteered at the Dawes Arboretum in Newark, Ohio, to help them make Christmas wreaths.The plant propagator invited Quiñones to help him propagate trees, she said.“And it was trees that actually did it for me,” she said. “The permanence of them. The stateliness of them. They last hundreds and hundreds of years. And not like a daylily or a daffodil that’s here one day and gone the next. And that’s what I fell in love with.”The volunteer work led Quiñones to get a bachelor degree in agriculture (with a focus on horticulture) in 2002. She celebrated her graduation with her first tattoo. Near the top of her back, it depicts the white-and-yellow flowers of a stewartia tree, her favorite.Quiñones later got a master’s of science degree in horticulture and eventually ended up with an office job making educational programs for a national horticulture association. But she didn’t enjoy it.She realized she needed a new job when she saw landscapers working on the grounds outside her window and she wished she were working with them.And that brought Quiñones to Fayetteville in 2014, when the Cape Fear Botanical Garden hired her to be its horticulture director.Quiñones revels in the property, excited to talk with visitors about the trees, flowers and wildlife on its 80 acres. She touches the flowers as she talks about them and even pets the bees sipping their nectar.“This is a place people can come and enjoy nature on so many levels,” Quiñones said.“If they just need a peaceful place to walk, this place is a place to come," she said. "If they want to learn about plants, this is a place to come. If they want to know, ‘What grows best in my yard?’ this is the place to come. If they want to bring their children to learn stuff, this is the place to come."Staff writer Paul Woolverton can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, 910-486-3512 and 910-261-4710.
