Flowers for Drew: Remembering the life of an editor, writer and friend - Delaware State News - Delaware State News
U.S. 13. It was then that he met James E. Clark, the proprietor of a service station in Dover.
We found it odd that it remained opened, yet no longer had gas pumps thanks to an environmental regulation. His headline — “Running on fumes” — came naturally.
“Clarkie” was still offering service to locals, though. He would check oil and inflate tires, and sometimes he would drive his old customers to a nearby station to fill up their tanks because that’s what he always did for them.
After meeting him, Drew tucked away another idea after learning Clarkie had survived the Indian River Inlet bridge collapse in 1948. The man plunged into the icy waters and managed to swim to a bulkhead where he reached out for a tire that saved his life.
The lede of the story:
“James E. “Clarkie” Clark curls his left pinky finger toward his hand.“
“More than 50 years ago, it was the strength of that little finger that stood between life and death.“
Drew’s newspaper career took him from the Delaware State News to Delaware Today in the 1990s and then back to our newspaper. In 2005, he returned to the magazine so he could spend more quality time with his family and less time on the road and less time attached to a daily newspaper nights and weekends.
Craig Horleman, our features editor, was alongside Drew for much of his career, dating back to work at The Review at the University of Delaware. They reunited at The Daily Whale and spent many evenings playing trivia and talking shop at Grotto’s Grand Slam.
“We’d talk about the day’s events and discuss how we could make the paper better and brainstorm story ideas,” Craig said. “This turns out to be pretty common among us newspaper folks. We can never seem to turn it off.
“He had his nervous moments like any of us do from time to time but it was out of an abundance of care to get the job done. He knew when to make things light and knew when to take things seriously and that mix really made him what he was — a great journalist and a great friend.”
It was in the fall that I last talked with Drew.
Whenever he called, there was a jestful greeting. This time, he opened with “Why don’t you send me flowers anymore?”
It had been too long between conversations.
You can’t help but wonder what Drew’s headline for this column would have been.
“Flowers for Drew” seems right.
We’ll not forget him.

Winning poster design for 2020 Common Ground Country Fair highlights native flowers, pollinators - Bangor Daily News
Collecting posters, prints and T-shirts from the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association’s annual Common Ground Country Fair is a tradition almost as cherished as the fair itself. Every year, fairgoers clamor at the merchandise tent for keepsakes featuring that year’s fun, farm-related design, which is chosen every year through a contest juried by members of the fair steering committee and the MOFGA board of directors.
This year’s design will highlight a pollinator and a native flower.
On Tuesday at the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in Augusta, MOFGA revealed the winner of its annual Common Ground Country Fair poster contest. The winning design by Portland-based artist Joy Grannis features blooming stalks of scarlet and magenta Monarda flowers, commonly known as bee balm, surrounded by three hovering yellow bees.

The 44th annual Common Ground Country Fair's winning poster design.
“The whole image really pops,” said April Boucher, director of the Common Ground Country Fair. “When we unveiled it at the [Maine Agricultural] Trades Show, people would stand in front of the image and take it all in. It’s a very stop-the-traffic kind of design.”
Grannis said that finding out her design had been chosen was “thrilling.”
“I wanted this for a long time,” she said. “I grew up knowing about the fair a... Feb 1, 2020

Bea Koch | Obituary - La Crosse Tribune
School and the Vernon County Teachers College and subsequently taught elementary school. Bea married Owen Levi Koch of Viola, Dec. 9, 1947, and remained his faithful partner until his passing Oct. 15, 2012. Bea and Owen together operated one of the most successful dairy farms in Southern Wisconsin, for over 40 years and were frequently recognized for their Holstein cattle. Following the sale of their farm and beloved Holsteins, Bea and Owen relocated to the Viroqua-Westby area. Following retirement from farming, Bea worked at Walmart for 27 years and formed many enduring relationships. Walmart was in some ways her "happy place." Bea was a thoughtful, humble and elegant woman, who was well known for her chocolate fudge, pineapple upside down cake and various other sweets. She loved desserts and ice cream bars and never turned down a good strong cup of black coffee. A lover of "all things to do with shopping," Bea was always conscientious and wanted to do the right thing. Bea had many friends from her days on the farm and card clubs, to her Oak Knoll and Walmart friends and Maplewood/Bethel Oaks. Surviving Bea are her three children, Randy (Heidi) of Gardnerville, Nev., Patricia (Dennis) Sobik of Merritt Island, Fla., and David (Julie) of Wayzata, Minn. Further surviving are six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; a brother, Sigurd (Cinda) Molland; two sisters, Joan Hayhurst and Emma (John) Oleski.
