Historically Speaking: Florists a big part of Dover - Seacoastonline.com
Joe Ham). The size of the operation was such that he was able to open and supply retail outlets in Portland and Augusta, Portsmouth and Laconia. He put down more roots by marrying a local woman, Ellen "Nellie" Vittum, and he built a sizable home adjacent to the greenhouse complex. In addition to growing flowers he was an active member of the Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, and a relatively exclusive organization, the Society of the Colonial Wars (perhaps the male equivalent of the Daughters of the American Revolution?).In 1921, Howe sold the business to Elwill Shortridge, a prominent Dover entrepreneur, owner of the C.E. Brewster Co., wholesale druggists, which was located in a building at the corner of Chestnut and Fourth streets, now the site of St. Mary's Parish Hall. At one time Shortridge also served as president of Merchants National Bank and president of the Dover Realty Co. He and his wife, who had been Ada Massingham, lived at 4 West Concord St., and he remained active in the business until his death in 1946. Ada then took over and with her nephew, Tom Massingham, managed the operation until her death in 1958.Tom Massingham had been born in England, but at age 5 was sent by his family to Dover to live with the Shortridges. As a young man he worked in the business, served in World War II, and upon his return and at Ada's death, became the owner of the Garrison Hill Greenhouses. In 1950, he was one of the first to construct a building on the nascent Miracle Mile, at what was then called Page's corner, opposite Glenwood Avenue. It was originally intended to be a retail flower and gift shop, but on Nov. 25-26 Mother Nature intervened at the Garrison Hill site with close to hurricane force winds that shattered greenhouse glass, entirely uprooting one building which landed on another, and causing an estimated $50,000 damage, well over a half million dollars in today's money.As a result, production at that location was limited and a much-reduced greenhouse space was grafted on to the building at Central Avenue. Over time the original greenhouse structures were dismantled and removed, the space eventually c... Jun 19, 2020
Obituary: Edith Florence Oliver - Press Herald
Small Point School, West Point and Phippsburg Center Schools and Bath Junior High. Upon graduation from Morse High School in 1960, Edith moved to Portland to attend business school and worked at First National Bank of Portland. On May 11, 1963, Edith married David Bichrest. Early in their marriage, they were stationed on Wood Island Lighthouse off Biddeford Pool for 30 months. After leaving the island, they moved to Cundy’s Harbor and built the home where, as she put it, “I did my best work”, raising six daughters, who were the “the loves of my life”. Edith dedicated herself to helping others and serving the Cundy’s Harbor Community. She participated on the Cundy’s Harbor Auxiliary, as a driver for the Ambulance Crew and served proudly as a volunteer during elections. Edith attended the Cundy’s Harbor Community Church and found great peace in knitting prayer shawls for those in need. For many years she participated in the annual community craft fair and spending the day with family and friends. The community will miss her smile and wave as they pass by Holbrook Street. For 31 years, Edith worked as a manager at Eldridge General Store. After her retirement she missed her time spent with the regulars and her ‘coffee crew’ who came in every day. Those years were incredibly important to her and her friends forever held a special place in her heart. Edith was predeceased by her mother, father; sister, Margaret Eleanor Oliver Ladue; and grandson, EN2 Austin Thomas Williams, United States Navy. She is survived by her six daughters, Cynthia Moody of Cundy’s Harbor, Vida Leeman and her husband Jerry of Cundy’s Harbor, Teresa Mann and her husband Joseph of Brunswick, Meredith Williams and her husband Andrew of Freeport, Michelle Shipley and her husband Aaron of Lewis Center, Ohio, and Edith Cram and her husband Matthew...

Sad, surreal scene in Los Angeles before Lakers' first game since Kobe Bryant's death - San Angelo Standard Times
Friday seemed to keep getting bigger and sadder and more surreal.
A few hours before the Lakers played the Portland Trail Blazers, a flock of doves flew up from the plaza outside.
Down below, a quiet congregation of basketball fans gathered again to mourn, writing messages to their perished hero on the ground and offering pieces of art as gifts to the grieving.
“Tonight, I’m not going to the game,” said impressionist painter Reza Safa. “I’m just going to paint.”
He painted as people watched, adding careful strokes to a work he called “Carry Me Dad.” It depicted Gianna Bryant on the shoulders of her father Kobe, the Lakers legend, both of whom died Sunday with seven other people in a helicopter crash in Calabasas — an accident that sent shockwaves of sadness the world over.
This was the first time the Lakers played since their deaths. And it felt like a state funeral, dwarfing in emotional importance the game itself, which the Lakers lost, 127-119.
At 7:25 p.m. PT, the lights went off inside the area, sparking chants of “MVP!” and a star-studded tribute to Bryant. Singer Usher started it, belting out a soulful rendition of “Amazing Grace” as he stood on the court between giant displays of Bryant’s two Lakers jersey numbers in gold flowers: 8 and 24.
Cellist Ben Hong then took Usher’s place and played for the crowd as a video of Bryant played on the screens above the court.
“You guys will always be in my heart,” Kobe said in it. “Thank... Feb 1, 2020
Roses for Kobe and Gianna as Lakers return to action - Rome Sentinel
Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash five days earlier. “Everybody was emotional,” James said after the Lakers lost to Portland 127-119. Davis, who scored 37 points, added, “We wanted to make him proud.” Portland’s Damian Lillard had 48 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in a Kobe-like performance. “I don’t think anybody walks away from this moment and this situation a winner,” Lillard said. “The memories that we’ll take away from it was just sad and just tough.” James paid tribute by wearing an oversized jersey, finger sleeve, wristbands and Bryant’s shoes. “Just showing that appreciation and love he gave us way before he knew us,” said James, who had 22 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists. The crowd tried to rally the Lakers, breaking into chants of Bryant’s name when the home team was down double digits. “That was pretty awesome,” said coach Frank Vogel, who used all 13 players on the roster. “I wanted to give everyone an opportunity to contribute.” James took center court in a pregame ceremony and read the names of the victims, ending with Bryant. He told the Staples Center crowd he had remarks prepared and pulled a piece of paper from his sweatpants. But then James tossed it to the floor. “Laker Nation, I would be selling you short if I read off this (expletive), so I’m going to go straight from the heart,” he said. “The first thing comes to mind is all about family. As I look around this arena, we’... Feb 1, 2020
