Christine Flowers: Free speech extends to students, too - pressherald.com
In December of 1965, the week I turned four, a group of high school students in Des Moines Iowa decided to wear black armbands to class in protest of the Vietnam War. They were suspended, and filed a lawsuit against the school district claiming that their First Amendment rights had been violated. Two lower courts dismissed their claims, but the Supreme Court reversed.
Holding that the student’s right to freedom of expression had been compromised, the 7-2 majority held that unless the “speech” was disruptive or that it would “materially and substantially interfere” with school activities, it could not be forbidden.
While there have been other cases that bubbled up through the system over the past half century, none has been as important in that area where students rights intersect with government interests than Tinker. Until, that is, this past week, when an eight-justice majority ruled in Mahanoy School District v. B.L. that a disappointed cheerleader at a Pennsylvania high school who dropped a bunch of “F” bombs on social media should not have been suspended because it violated her First Amendment right to expression.

Obituary: Kristine Lynne Franklin - Prescott Daily Courier
Lord and Savior on Sept. 12, 2020, after a four-year battle with cancer. Kris was born on Jan. 13, 1965, in Independence, Iowa, to Robert and Sharon Allen. Her family moved to Prescott Valley, Arizona, in April 1969. She graduated from Bradshaw Mountain High School in 1983 as Valedictorian of her class.
She married her sweetheart, Anthony Franklin, on June 1, 1983, five days after graduating high school. Kris always just wanted to be a wife and mother. Her life revolved around being a homemaker and mom to her four children. She and Tony also took in three other teens for a period of time who were also in need of a home.
Kris became a born-again Christian as a young girl and was faithful to Jesus her entire life. She enjoyed reading, loved to work jigsaw puzzles and baking. She also loved listening to Christian music and was a huge fan of tenor David Phelps, actually getting to meet him and attend a Barn Bash at his home in Culeoka, Tennessee, just before starting her cancer treatment. This trip was a special highlight in her life.
Kris is survived by Tony, her husband of 37 years; her children, Brandon (Dayna) Franklin, of Presc... Sep 7, 2020

To keep enjoying your garden's flowers, consider drying them - Fairfield Citizen
Testing with a few flowers and different drying times may be necessary, however," said Cindy Haynes, an associate professor of horticulture with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Silica sand, when used for preserving flowers, tends to be better at retaining their natural colors, but no single process works for all plants, Haynes said.
When using this method, the entire flower head is normally submerged or covered in a box of the silica sand or gel.
"This is often used for delicate flowers that don't respond well to air drying or for flowers for crafts that don't need the stems," Haynes said.
Blooms with a low moisture content, pinecones, seed heads, foliage, grains and grasses are the most popular choices for centerpieces or special occasion use (think wintertime weddings or fragrant Valentine nosegays). Combining their different colors, sizes, shapes and textures results in the best displays.
Certain flowers like globe amaranth, strawflower and celosia have petals that are partially dry at bloom so they dry quickly and retain their shape well during and after the drying process, Haynes said.
"These species and several grasses and grains are often listed on 'flowers for drying' lists," she said. "Other, more succulent flowers, are less successful as dried flowers."
Dried flowers usually are arranged into bouquets, but there are many other applications. Dried plants can be used for cooking (cakes, teas), bathing, paired with cleaning products (delightful scents), attached to homemade cards and parchment paper, and made into dyes, gifts, wreaths, or sachets and potpourri.
Some generic tips for drying flowers:
— Harvest in the cool of the morning, but after the dew evaporates. That prevents mold from developing.
— Flowers that are cut for drying should be almost fully bloomed, according to horticulturists with Johnny's Selected Seeds in Winslow, Maine. "In the weeks when they are drying... Aug 22, 2019
