Spring Flowers and Trees Along the Marathon Route
Marathon every year since it is an opportune time to view spring flowering plants while running a relatively flat course throughout beautiful Champaign-Urbana.With spring a little later this year, we'll get the opportunity to view flowering quince. It is usually an early bloomer and mostly done by this point of the season in normal years. The flowers of Rhododendron ‘PJM' are not new to the IL Marahon route. They typically persist for about a month every spring, so we usually have a good show at marathon time.Star magnolia is still in bloom this year for the IL Marathon. In typical years, this plant nearly done flowering.Saucer magnolia, with its beautiful pinkish-white blooms, is just starting it's 2018 show. In most years, this plant is in full bloom now.Red maples flower for a month or more each spring since the timing of flower development varies among individual plants. This year, the IL Marathon really hit the prime time for red maples. It is probably one of the most common flowering trees along the marathon route. Although its tiny flowers are hard to see individually, they make a wonderful display when filling an entire tree canopy.Norway maple is another species with tiny flowers that make a big display. We are lucky to hit this one in full bloom this year as it typically is in the final stages for the IL Marathon.This year, redbud has barely started its display. In typical years, it is much further along, often in full bloom. Although flowers have not quite emerged fully, the red to hot-pink, expanding flower buds are still quite beautiful. Apr 6, 2018

40 years of flowers for the Peoria area
Callahan said. “That was 40 years ago next month. [On] St. Patrick’s day, it’ll be 40 years.”The Peoria-native pursued his college degree in Champaign before coming back to his roots to buy the shop.“I grew up right in the neighborhood of the store here. I went to [University of Illinois], and my goal was to get a master’s in architecture, but I ended up stopping at the end of having my bachelor’s and decided that this was the career I wanted,” Callahan said.Since buying the business in 1978, Callahan said he’s seen a myriad of changes occur in Peoria and the shop itself.“It has been a revolution in every way, shape and form,” Callahan said. “[When we opened], we had very few gift items; the silk flowers we had in and artificial things were just light years more primitive and lower end than what we do now. [Now], we have our flowers come weekly from overseas … To get daffodils and tulips and hyacinths and lilies from Holland every week, that was unfathomable back in that day. [The store is] also wildly different. What we do is primarily service now and high-end design work … [where we’re] working with the people about their themes and logistics and creative ideas. It’s the world of pinterest.”According to Callahan, he takes pride in his products’ ability to enhance big life moments.“Nowadays, whenever you invite a girl out to a prom or homecoming, or whatever, there’s some kind of specialness about it, the venue or how you announce it,” Callahan said. “Well, every one of our flowers, we like to think, is one of those portals to a relationship or some [special] experience.”Throughout his time servicing the community, C...

Flowers, anger, regret as accused kidnapper indicted
Goodwin Avenue, with a card that read: "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Family and Friends of Yingying Zhang during their trying time."At Champaign's Stonegate Village Apartments — where Christensen lived and allegedly "held (Ms. Zhang) for his own benefit and purpose," in the words of the one-paragraph indictment delivered Wednesday — Pondja Djamba expressed regret and anger.A Parkland College student who has lived in the complex for about a year, Djamba said he doesn't know his neighbors well. But had any of them heard or seen the acts authorities allege Christensen committed against the visiting Chinese scholar, he has enough faith in humanity to believe they'd have sprung into action."How could this happen at our complex?" Djamba asked. "We could have done something."The news that arrived just before 4 p.m. Wednesday wasn't what many in the community had been hoping for. Thirty-four days after she was last seen, Ms. Zhang still has not been found, and the U.S. attorney's office repeated what the FBI said the day Christensen was arrested: Ms. Zhang is presumed dead."This determination is based on facts presented in court and court documents, and other facts uncovered during the ongoing investigation," read a statement from Patrick Hansen, acting U.S. Attorney for the Central District.Asked about the scope of the search for Ms. Zhang and her photograph being removed from the Most Wanted Kidnappings & Missing Persons page on the FBI website, Springfield-based bureau spokesman Brad Ware declined comment. From this point forward, he said, the U.S. Attorney's Office will be the only agency commenting about the case.Christensen, 28, remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service at the Macon County Jail. He was denied bail last week in his second appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Eric Long and is due back in Long's courtroom at 3 p.m. July 20 for arraignment.A preliminary hearing scheduled for Friday at the federal courthouse in Urbana was vacated.Few new details were provided in the indictment issued Wed...
