Camellias bloom, compete for judges favor in annual Kenner flower show

Camellia. The 77th annual Camellia Club of New Orleans flower show and competition was held recently at Theodore Roosevelt Middle School in Kenner. Over 830 blooms from more than 25 exhibitors from across the Gulf South competed. American Camellia Society-certified judges selected the blue, red and yellow award winners in classifications based on variety, species, size and protected or unprotected growing conditions. The flowers were judged on their size, color, freshness and foliage. The judges look for a flower that is true to the form for the variety standards. The best of the blue award winners advanced to the contention table where awards were given for the top blooms in each class. John Grimm was the sweepstakes winner, earning 82 blue awards. Often called the Queen of Winter, the Camellia generally blooms between November and March, bringing color to the garden. "I enjoy them because in the winter they produce beautiful flowers and we are limited as to what we can produce in the winter," show chairman and club treasurer Nick Piazza said. Freeze impacts the flowers but the plant is freeze-resistant and is still attractive in the landscape when not blooming, he added. Hunter Charbonnet harvested 40 blooms for the show from the 550 Camellia plants that he has on his North Shore property. In 1992 he started his garden and, "It is just a hobby that ...

Moms and mementos: The Mother's Day to remember

Granny, my mother Dolores Dollar, and reminds me that parents are the “rock” for their children all of their lives. — Debbie Settoon, of Kenner ••••• My son Graham made this cut-out card when he was in grade school — probably about first or second grade. He is left-handed and you will see from the inside of the card that it opens from the left. You will see from oldest son Greer’s card, it opens to the right and, rather than a cut-out, he drew a teddy bear, cut it out and pasted it on top of the card. The cards are unique, so different and special, as are my sons. I keep the cards taped to my bathroom mirror. Graham is now 20 and a freshman at LSU. Greer is now 21 and a senior at LSU. — Lisa Gardner, of Baton Rouge ••••• I love being a mom just to get these gems! — Cheri Olinde, of St. Amant, says of the pictures colored by 6-year-old son Bryson ••••• This is one of my favorite drawings by my daughter Emmy Miller (age 13). She gave me it to me last year for Mother’s Day when she was 12. It is very special to me for several reasons. First, you can see the thoughtfulness and effort she put into it, w... (The Advocate)

The death of Dr. Elbert Goodier: Murder, suicide leave sadness, questions

A nurse at the reception desk told Thomas not to open the door, that the doctor was with another patient. But the Kenner man opened the door anyway, authorities said, pointed his handgun at Goodier's head and squeezed the trigger, killing the 75-year-old husband, father and grandfather. At a Wendy's restaurant on the hospital campus, with Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputies advancing toward him, Thomas placed the gun in his mouth and ended his life. Anger over medical condition It's still unclear what drove Thomas to kill the doctor and then himself. He had been a patient of Goodier's, said Jefferson Parish Sheriff's spokesman, Col. John Fortunato, and he was upset over a medical condition, which Fortunato declined to identify due to privacy concerns. Fortunato also declined to specify the mental illness Thomas' family told investigators he suffered from – again citing privacy issues. Neither Jefferson Parish authorities nor Kenner police said they've had any past contact with Thomas, save a 2002 speeding ticket. A member of his family declined to speak with a reporter when reached by phone Friday morning. Residents in the block where Thomas lived said he would wave to them whenever they saw him, cane in hand, walking in the neighborhood. After shooting Goodier, authorities said Thomas ran out of the office and through the attached parking garage. A woman who came to pick up Mikulecky's patient said she saw a man with a gun run past her through the garage, Mikulecky said. Seconds later, the lab technician and one of Goodier's nurses ran into the garage, frantically asking if anyone saw a man in a trench coat. "He just shot the doctor!" Mikulecky remembered them yelling. "He just shot my doctor in the head!" Witnesses spotted Thomas heading through some bushes and into the Wendy's. A female customer, who asked not to be identified, said she didn't notice Thomas until she heard workers yelling that police were coming. "Once the officer made eye contact with the elderly gentlemen, it appears as though he had taken the handgun, and placed it in his mouth and took his own... (NOLA.com)
