Robert Mercer, CEO who helped win Goodyear War, dies at age 96 - Akron Beacon Journal
CEO in 1983, succeeding Charles Pilliod. He retired as CEO at age 65, with Tom Barrett taking over the top position."It is not an exaggeration to say that the Goodyear of today would not exist without Bob Mercer," said Rich Kramer, Goodyear chairman, president and chief executive officer."As our CEO during the attempted takeover of the company in 1986, Bob stood firm in his commitment to our associates, to the company, to our customers and to the city of Akron. He not only saved the company from an uncertain fate but used the experience to reposition us for growth in the future. Bob added to the legacy of a great American company and planted the seeds for the Goodyear of the future.

VIDEO: Flowers stolen from Vernon distillery – Summerland Review - Summerland Review
The family-owned distillery’s Pat Dyck was back replanting Wednesday after her flowers were taken from the whisky barrel planters in front of the Vernon business last week.
“What’s really sad is that this is the third time this has happened. Twice last year and now again last week,” said the distillery’s Jeremie Dyck.
“We realize it’s not anything worth troubling the police over but our 75-year-old mom puts so much effort into planting beautiful flowers and keeping our distilleries decorated for every season. This is really disheartening.”
The distillery on 24th Street captured surveillance video of a black car pulling up to the barrels just after 10 p.m. Thursday, May 21.
A person can be seen digging out the plants and putting them in the car before leaving.
“Déjà vu from the last two times,” Dyck said.
Not one to give up easily, Dyck said the barrels have since been replanted and the security camera lens has been given an extra cleaning for good measure.

Will there be a super bloom next year? The spot to see wildflowers is Oswit Canyon - Desert Sun
Yes, a real orchid!
No less than nine cactus species have been found in the area, including the California barrel cactus (Ferocactus cylindraceus). With occasional specimens developing several stems and reaching up to 7 feet, it is the largest succulent in the region.

Hikers are warned to keep a safe distance from the jumping cholla (Cylindropuntia bigelovii), as it is the spiniest of all local cactuses. Segments immediately attach to clothing if even the slightest contact is made. (Curiously, asexual reproduction is the primary method of establishment for jumping cholla. Every time a segment breaks off, it has the potential to start a new cactus.)
Lucky hikers may encounter a hedgehog cactus (Echinocereus engelmannii) in bloom beginning in late March. I argue the large magenta flowers of this species are the showiest of any cactus species in the valley. It is true that cactus numbers have declined at Oswit, beginning with five successive years of drought from 1999 through 2003. Nonetheless, a majority of the nine species have survived.
Last year, much heavier-than-normal winter rainfall released a bloom the likes of which hadn’t been seen in more than a decade. Dormant shrubs, led by brittlebush (Encelia farinosa), turned the alluvial fan yellow with tens of thousands of daisy-like blossoms.
Splashes of red dotted the landscape, derived from the flowers of the chuparosa (Justicia californica). With each shrub laden with hundreds of flowers, the red stood in colorful contrast to the otherwise yellow surroundings. The long and tube-shaped chuparosa blossoms are a mecca for hummingbirds, the primary pollinator of the species.
Observant hikers also found the pale lavender to pink flowers of the desert hibiscus (Hibiscus denudatus) covering the stems of what is an otherwise unnoticed shrub.
Annual wildflowers, perhaps better described as ephemerals, were led by the ever-present and white-flowered popcorn flowers (Cryptantha). Though smaller than a dime, their sheer abundance forced them to be noticed. Sep 19, 2019
Puyallup will help pay for your rain garden. City promotes stormwater conservation - Tacoma News Tribune
The program focuses on creating greener infrastructure through rain gardens, permeable pavement and rain barrels, all of which put stormwater back into the ground, filtering out toxins and reducing flow rates.
Dan and Cheryl Comsia have had stormwater nourishing their front and back yards since 2016. It cost them about $2,500 to excavate the yard, and Puyallup picked up $1,000 for materials, including piping, and native plants like lavender.
“It was an easy step for us in making a bit of a difference,” Cheryl Comsia said.
Puyallup already helped to fund 63 rain gardens, where runoff flows into shallow, sunken plant beds; 22 permeable pavements, to ensure water reaches the earth beneath concrete; and 34 rain barrels to collect stormwater for lawn and garden use.
“You don’t see too often the city giving up money without strings attached,” Marrinan said.
The Comsias have pipes running from their roof, down the house, underneath the ground and into a soil mix with enough compost and organics to support plant life. The front yard is full of grasses, herbs and flowers.
Puyallup will pay up to $1,000 toward rain garden materials, one rain barrel and up to 50 pe... Sep 19, 2019
