Flower delivery complaints bloom in the spring
Lee of Kailua Kona, Hawaii. "They then argued with me and said they were roses when clearly they were carnations."
Olivia of Ocala, Fla., also had a problem with the selection. "They sent whatever they wanted!!! Not even close to what I purchased for $103.00. They said they were local... THEY ARE NOT!"
Kiki of Waynesville, Ohio, called on a Friday afternooon to get flowers for a Saturday funeral.
"I was called this afternoon (Tuesday) and told that the flowers were not delivered but they could send a nice arrangement to another address. They stated that they miscalculated the distance to the funeral home," Kiki said. "I spent close to an hour trying to speak to someone to get a refund. I was disconnected, or repeatedly sent to a Customer Service Expert who gave me the same story each time. While on hold, a recorded voice told me that Avas is locally owned and operated. Each time I called, I got through to a call center."
Avas, headquartered in Mahwah, N.J., claims to have been in business for 30 years, much of it as a brick-and-mortar floral shop. It now takes orders nationwide, sending them on to local florists for fulfillment.
While all flower delivery services have their problems, especially at busy times of the year, Avas has lately seen the brunt of many reader complaints. As with any vendor, consumers should carefully review Avas' cancellation and refund page before placing an order:

Lawmakers Strike Optimistic Tone Ahead Of Session
Medicaid expansion—that’s one thing you won’t see.”
And Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) is skeptical of the governor’s new gaming compact.
“Well I’m not looking forward to the whole debate over gambling expansion and regulation,” Baxley says. “I think that’s a very difficult conversation to have.”
In addition to the compact, the governor is bringing forward two other big lifts—a tax cut package and more cash for economic development. Between the two, he’s looking for $1.25 billion.
While putting your nose to the grindstone after a vacation is never easy—and there’s plenty of work to do—most lawmakers are as optimistic as Rep. Joe Geller (D-Aventura).
“Oh, I wouldn’t say I’m dreading anything,” Geller says. “I just hope that we’ll be able to get our work for the people done in a timely fashion—make some things happen that’ll make a difference in the lives of average Floridians.”
They’ll have until March 11 to make that happen.

Furling the Flag
Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. While the number of protests and the audiences were smaller than that first weekend, two key protests in Ocala, Fla., and Memphis, Tenn., boasted impressive numbers, 5,000 and 500 respectively.
That was just the start.
Between June 17, the day of the Charleston massacre, and Aug. 26, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) counted 218 pro-battle flag rallies, most of them in the former Confederate states. A total of more than 20,000 people turned out, based on the SPLC’s tally. At least 67 more were planned in the coming weeks. Many of the rallies were spontaneous; but, giving the lie to the slogan of “Heritage, not Hate,” racist groups like the Klan also played key roles in the backlash.

Pride? Or Hate?
Perhaps the reaction should not have come as such a surprise.
The battle flag has long had a major constituency, especially in the South. Facebook pages run by local “flagger” groups began popping up almost overnight after the Charleston killings, even as most Americans mourned the victims’ deaths. The association of the pennant with slavery, segregation, the Dixiecrats, and the Ku Klux Klan in its battle against civil rights, seems to matter not a lick to certain white Southerners. Shocking numbers of whites see the flag in positive terms.
In early July, a CNN poll found that 57% of all Americans viewed the flag more as a symbol of Southern pride than of racism. And these views have held fairly steady in recent years, with a 2000 poll also finding that most Americans saw it then, as well, as a symbol of Southern pride. But, to the surprise of no one, opinions are sharply divided by race. In the recent CNN poll, 72% of African Americans saw the battle flag as a symbol of racism, while just 25% of whites agreed.
The racial divide is widest in the South. While 75% of Southern whites describe the flag as a symbol of pride and 18% call it a symbol of racism, those figures are almost exactly reversed among the Southern black population — just 11% see the flag as a sign of pride, while 75% see it as a symbol of racism.
But white support for the flag is linked to a lack of educational achievement. Among white people with a college degree, 51% see it as a symbol of pride and 41% as a symbol of racism. By contrast, 73% of whites who do not have a college degree see it as symbol of Southern pride and just 18% see it as symbolizing racism.
Dylann Roof, who was 21 at the time of the shooting and had dropped out of high school several years before, revered the flag. Like a surprising number of his peers, he repeatedly took photos of himself proudly flying the banner.
Hate Groups Step In
Although most flaggers have no known history in racist groups and say their support has nothing to do with hatred, organized hate groups have played a key role in fighting what they describe as the “American Kristallnacht” — a reference to the 1938 pogrom against Jews and Jewish property throughout Germany. The SPLC has documented the involvement of six major hate groups, sometimes as organizers.
