Flowers ends stellar career at Sam Houston
Fargo, North Dakota.
The other semifinal matches Youngstown State (11-3) against Eastern Washington (12-1) at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Roos Field in Cheney, Washington.
The national title game will be Jan. 7 in Frisco.
“If they play the lights out game like they did tonight that have a chance” to win the national title, Flowers said of JMU.
Flowers was a first team all-district wideout and cornerback at JT. He caught 69 passes as a senior and 64 as a junior, and had 40 tackles and three interceptions as a senior.
With the loss at JMU the college career for Flowers came to an end.
“Honestly it has not sunk in yet,” he said moments after the game ended. “To go out this way … I know my team put all they could into it. Nobody left anything out on the field.”
What will Flowers remember the most of his time at Sam Houston?
“I made a lot of good memories with great guys around me,” he said. “I learned a lot of things for life, not just football. Being around great guys who like to win, who like to do the right thing; it was just a great experience for four years.”

Manchester Music Garden To Feature All-Weather Instruments
A sale of engraved bricks for the patio is to begin soon, and a fundraiser is to be held at Cheney Hall on May 6, featuring Wild Heart, A Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac tribute band.
Rotary Club members had been seeking a collaborative project with the town, and the idea for the music garden was among a list of potential projects that Shanley submitted to the club last year, Rodner said.
"So we presented it to our club and everyone agreed it was a homerun if we could pull it off," Rodner said.
The music garden is to be installed near the new playscape, which will be to the left, as a person faces the park from Charter Oak Avenue. The park has been closed during the ongoing renovation, which includes new basketball and tennis courts and parking area. The planned re-opening is set for July, General Manager Scott Shanley said.
Contributions to the Music Garden should be made out to the Manchester Rotary Club Foundation at P.O. Box 1, Manchester, CT 06045.

GARDEN BRUNCH EDITION -- TRUMP revives Latino activism – POOL REPORTS from WHCD party circuit -- B'DAYS ...
ZEITGEIST – “GOP’s Stop-Trump fever breaks: But a small core of Never-Trump operatives is still plotting a contested convention,” by Kyle Cheney and Ben Schreckinger: “[P]ro-Cruz and anti-Trump forces are running out of options to prevent Trump from becoming the nominee. If the real estate developer and reality television star scores a big win in Indiana on Tuesday, Cruz’s only remaining strategy may be a hostile takeover of the Republican National Convention — a move GOP insiders still see as possible but certainly one that could severely damage the party.” http://politi.co/24cq1zD
JUICY READ – “Donald Trump, José Andrés and the death of a grand Washington restaurant,” by WashPost’s Jonathan O’Connell: “He called it Topo Atrio, his vision for a sumptuous hotel restaurant befitting a $200 million makeover of the Old Post Office Pavilion on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington. José Andrés designed a 212-seat, 9,000-square-foot dining room clad in travertine limestone and trimmed in gold. Costing nearly $7 million to build, it would feature hand-carved cured ham from the black-footed Iberico pigs of his native Spain and squid ink pasta with head-on red shrimp, cuttlefish and aioli.
“But as Andrés prepared to present his final plans ... [Trump] took the stage at Trump Tower in New York to announce his candidacy for president and, ... (Politico)Feb 2, 2016

A summer of change for Gig Harbor's farmers markets
Girl’s Night Out in November. That position will be taken on by Heidi Gerling, formerly a program director at the Cheney Family Branch of the Boys and Girls Club.
Alliance president Pat Schmidt said Rose stepped down from the market to spend more time with her family and the alliance then decided to transform the position into a year-round commitment.
“We needed someone to do the full picture,” Schmidt said.
Gerling was brought on for her experience in event planning, grant writing, social media and web design, Schmidt said.
The market is in its last week, finishing up the year on Thursday (Sept. 24).
The Gig Harbor Farmers Market opened a new location at Uptown this summer, which ran from April to September and featured produce, flowers and crafts, as well as live music. Schultz declared the new market a success.
The Sunday market at Uptown had about 15 to 18 vendors each week, with about 10 vendors being crafts and others selling seafood, cheese, produce and flowers. Three farmers visited the market weekly, Schultz said: Artondale Farms, Hayton Farms and Gig Harbor Flower and Vegetable Farm.
The Uptown market will finish up with an 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. market on Sunday (Sept. 27).
The flux in markets began last fall when the city announced it would not renew the permit that allowed Schultz’s summer market to operate in downtown Skansie Brothers Park. The city accepted a proposal from the alliance to put together the new market.
At the time, City Manager Ron Williams sent Schultz an email saying the city wanted to move away from a market that included craft-focused vendors. The markets run by Schultz at Uptown and Peninsula Gardens still offer crafts from local merchants.
The waterfront market, on the other hand, wanted to bring in produce vendors from around the area. For Ken VanBuskirk of Davis Farm in Belfair, that’s appealing.
“One of the things about this market is it’s strictly local producers and farmers,” he said.
The Waterfront Farmers Market had about 1,000 visitors a week shopping at the more than 20 vendors in Skansie Brothers Park, according to a Sept. 14 release from the alliance.
The downtown market benefited from a relationship with the City of Gig Harbor, which provided seed money to start the market and hire Rose as director.
The summer market season may be ending, but there’s still a market f... (TheNewsTribune.com)Jan 8, 2016
