Give Eugene Goodman All His Damn Flowers - The Mary Sue
Bruce C.T. Wright of News One, a bill been introduced to award Goodman with the Congressional Medal of Honor!
Nearly two weeks later, the country remained in deep gratitude to him for upholding his oath to protect and serve, something that stood in stark contrast to the potentially treasonous actions of some of his Capitol Police Department colleagues who appeared to aid and abet members of the riotous group of thugs whose actions that fateful day led to at least five deaths, including two police officers.
That’s why a bipartisan group of Congressmembers has introduced a bill to award Goodman with the Congressional Gold Medal, a distinction enjoyed by the likes of Rosa Parks, the Tuskegee Airmen and Dr. Dorothy Height, to speak nothing of the past U.S. presidents and international dignitaries who have also received the coveted prize.
“By putting his own life on the line and successfully, single-handedly leading insurrectionists away from the floor of the Senate Chamber, Officer Eugene Goodman performed his duty to protect Congress with distinction, and by his actions, Officer Goodman left an indelible mark on American history,” the legislation that was introduced by Florida Rep. Charlie Crist and Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II, both Democrats, along with Republican South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace, says in part.
To see Goodman recognized for his actions is the kind of energy we need in 2021. We especially need to keep this energy as we acknowledge just how heavy of a task it wa... Feb 1, 2021
Pasadena florist: Orders reflect people’s isolation in pandemic - Houston Chronicle
Wright has seen the impact of COVID-19. Rules for funeral services have fluctuated to reflect pandemic conditions, but orders to Wright’s shop have remained steady.
“There are more people sending flowers,” Wright said. “That’s the way they’re expressing themselves because they’re not able to attend; so we’ve been very, very busy.”
Like restaurants offering curbside and other businesses going online, Wright has found a way to survive during an unpredictable business climate.
The need to say it with flowers, Wright said, has become more pronounced.
“People want you to know that they’re thinking about you,” she said.

People are also looking for other means to connect.
“People are so excited nowadays to get flowers,” Wright said. Sometimes the delivery becomes a welcome break for those customers just wanting to come out of their pandemic seclusion, especially older people, homebound and alone.
“Older people are very afraid of COVID,” Wright said. “They are just very careful … and we want to keep a distance, but when we go deliver they’ll follow us and not let us get back in our car, because they’re lonely, they want to talk and have some kind of interaction.”
Heartfelt messages on cards
Wright said it’s those longer messages on cards and the personal stories from customers that drive home the emotional toll the pandemic has had on people.
“When someone orders a casket cover and they tell you that their husband died alone because they couldn’t come in (to the hospital room) — that gives you goosebumps,” she said. That order, Wright said, becomes part of the grieving process in a way that’s different than before.
Enchanted Florist arranger Gloria Cervantes sees the difference, too. She had always taken pride in her work, but now, like Wright, Cervantes finds greater gratification in her role as messenger. Her arrangements fill a void, she said.
“We feel a lot of people are lonely now, and then for those people who can’t go to a family member’s funeral, they feel helpless and sad because they can’t be there,” Cervantes said. “With flowers, it’s a way for us to help them express their affection and love.”
Wright started her business because she just loved flowers, but she also felt a calling to be provide a source of comfort or to convey joy.
“This year has made what we do more meaningful,” she said. “I take it very personal and try to do the very best with every order that comes in.”

Gardening: Order from seed catalogs now - The Providence Journal
March 1 is good where I am.What are my favorite companies? This year I ordered most of my seeds from FEDCO Seeds, a co-op based in Maine. I like that it’s a cooperative and does everything in a low-key, sustainable way: their catalog has no color pictures designed to make me drool. They offer small seed packs for as little as $2. And instead of saying that every tomato variety is “The Best Tasting,” they tell the flaws as well as the positive attributes of each variety.I always get some things from Johnny’s Selected Seeds, an employee-owned company in Maine that is favored by commercial growers. They provide excellent growing information. This year, they provide excellent comparison photos in each section — all their tomatoes, side-by-side, for example.Last year, I tried John Scheepers’ Kitchen Garden Seeds and liked them a lot. If you are interested in unusual vegetables like shiso, Karikachi edamame, tatsoi, mizuna and other Asian veggies, they have plenty to choose from. They even have peanuts for Northern gardeners! Like Fedco, no color photos in the catalog.partner-banner util-module-path="elements/partner" fluid bottom lazy class="spac... Oct 15, 2020
If a sunflower blooms in a city, does it make a difference? - Columbia Chronicle
We looked at sunflowers grown in contaminated soils and if we could produce a seed oil that remained free of lead and other contaminants,” McHugh said.
Sunflowers were chosen because they can grow well even in contaminated soils, McHugh said. They can also contribute to clean energy and product development through the use of sunflower oil.
The experiment soon became secondary, McHugh said.
When the sunflower heads turned downward for the first time in 2012, McHugh knew it was time to harvest them. But he found the residents of the Washington Park neighborhood wanted the sunflower patch to become a permanent fixture.
“Over time, I realized that there was something more important than a technical-scientific research project,” McHugh said. “There was something that took precedence over that, and that was what can natural beauty do for neighborhoods.”
In addition to being beneficial for wildlife, green spaces in urban areas are also important for “our own human benefit and emotional well-being” to break up what is otherwise a concrete jungle, said Michele Hoffman-Trotter, adjunct faculty member in the Science and Mathematics Department.
In Chicago, groups such as Chicago Eco House, 6439 S. Peoria St., are using urban agriculture to beautify neighborhoods while educating residents. When living in an urban environment, it can be easy to disconnect from Mother Nature, said Quilen Blackwell, president of Chicago Eco House.
Because of this, the group is there to establish a new connection between human beings and nature by turning vacant lots into 100% sustainable flower farms.
“The industry in the United States is pretty small for flowers; about 80% of the flowers that you see at the market come from overseas,” Blackwell said. “Very few urban flower farmers are located within the city.”
Despite this, McHugh believes Chicago is a great place for urban agriculture.
“Unlike New York City or Los Angeles, we are situated in the middle of some of the most productive agriculture in the world, some of the finest soils, even though they have been degraded in the cit... Oct 15, 2020
Dennis Koeppen Obituary - Longview, WA | The Daily News - Legacy.com
Rhythm and Blues. He enjoyed jamming with his longtime friend, Dan Whyms, who performed in a Johnny Cash Tribute Show around the world. Dan remained a close friend until the road for Dennis ended. Family and friends remember Dennis as a positive and upbeat person. He always seemed to discover the plus side of seemingly negative obstacles and challenges we all face in life. His faith beliefs kept him hopeful and trusting that the future will be glorious and eternal in Jesus Christ our Lord. Due to Covid restrictions we were unable to hold a large gathering. The family is planning to hold a Celebration of Life gathering near Dennis's Birthday in August 2021. In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.Published by The Daily News on Oct. 13, 2020.
