Flowers dropped on Upland porches are ‘random acts of kindness’ amid coronavirus crisis - Inland Valley Daily Bulletin
James Russell, vice president of wholesale operations for Armstrong Growers, was sick of throwing out product. As a nonessential business, his retail centers are closed during the coronavirus pandemic and ornamental flowers are going into the trash bin.Last weekend he had an idea. He got in his truck and began dropping off flower baskets at homes around his neighborhood. All told, he left 28 colorful flower arrays on porches in Upland.
“I love Upland,” he said on Friday, April 24. “The houses are so beautiful here. So my wife and I have been going around dropping off flowers.”

‘Still in shock’ over death of rider Kat Morel - Sherwood Park News
Equestrian Canada High Performance director, James Hood. “On behalf of EC, I extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of Katharine, as well as to the entire team who surrounded Kerry On.”Hood had more to say in an interview with CBC Canada.“Rotational falls are generally the most dangerous falls we see in equestrian sport. And they often have very serious injuries as a result of them,” he said. “Katharine was just entering onto our radar of international events and was working her way toward competing for a spot on the national team. She was a great developing athlete and a great person.”In a story published in the Sherwood Park News in September of 2018, Morel dreamed of cracking Team Canada for the Paris 2024 Olympics in the sport of eventing — where a single horse-and-rider combination compete against others across the three disciplines of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping.Morel talked about discovering her horse.“I had a horse who I kind of maxed out with and I needed a new prospect,” she said. “Tricia knows all the trainers at Northlands and that you could occasionally find a diamond in the rough there. Some just don’t like to run. I came upon a three-year-old thoroughbred mare named Kerry On. She was a horse who wasn’t racing well — in fact, in her last race before I bought her, she walked out of the starting gate. She just wasn’t a runner. I looked at her, and you just kind of get to see them in the stall, not even ride them, but I just liked her instantly. I had no idea if she would even want to jump anything. But I took a chance on her. It took her a few years of training to get her feet and she has turned out to be phenomenal.”She also talked about her passion for the sport and her hopes of reaching a pinnacle and getting to represent Canada in a major event.“It is like any dream, you never really know what can happen. All you can do is stay positive, work hard and do your best to educate yourself on how you can keep getting to the next levels. Nobody in any sport has a straight arrow to the top, it is always a bumpy road. It takes hard work and it can eventually pay off. I believe that if I work hard enough, that is definitely obtainable. You have to have a horse that really enjoys what they do, and I have that.“I think it is a realistic dream. But you have to work really hard because there are other people out there working just as hard to get to the same goal and there is only room for a few.”Equestrian Canada is now working with sister federation, US Equestrian, to investigate the fall and to continue developing methods to improve safety for both riders and firstname.lastname@example.org/Realshanejones
