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. 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... Sep 7, 2020
Historically Speaking: Florists a big part of Dover - Seacoastonline.com
Merchants National Bank and president of the Dover Realty Co. He and his wife, who had been Ada Massingham, lived at 4 West Concord St., and he remained active in the business until his death in 1946. Ada then took over and with her nephew, Tom Massingham, managed the operation until her death in 1958.Tom Massingham had been born in England, but at age 5 was sent by his family to Dover to live with the Shortridges. As a young man he worked in the business, served in World War II, and upon his return and at Ada's death, became the owner of the Garrison Hill Greenhouses. In 1950, he was one of the first to construct a building on the nascent Miracle Mile, at what was then called Page's corner, opposite Glenwood Avenue. It was originally intended to be a retail flower and gift shop, but on Nov. 25-26 Mother Nature intervened at the Garrison Hill site with close to hurricane force winds that shattered greenhouse glass, entirely uprooting one building which landed on another, and causing an estimated $50,000 damage, well over a half million dollars in today's money.As a result, production at that location was limited and a much-reduced greenhouse space was grafted on to the building at Central Avenue. Over time the original greenhouse structures were dismantled and removed, the space eventually covered by apartment buildings, and the only reminder we have of what was there is the name of the street, Floral Avenue. (The business remains in operation, however, with the next generation, Thomas Massingham as owner, located in the small plaza at the corner of Chestnut and Fourth streets.)This was not the only florist operation in town. Recently we mentioned the Elliott Greenhouses set back some distance from the Dover Point Road (the location of the present Ponte Place development). This was a major producer of roses, with a national, even international, clientele. For a time there was a retail store, Thornwood, in the building now occupied by Patty B's restaurant.Bob and Barbara Drew had a small greenhouse on Tolend Road. There was Bob's Flower Shop, Robert Ham proprietor, at 2 Central Ave. In the mid-1940s, there was Brown's Flower Shop (Aaron and Ralph Brown, owners) at 107 Washington St., which advertised being open on Sunday morning.The Whatnot Flowers and Gifts was at 517 Central Ave., owned by Edward and Natalie Duffy, with "a full line of religious articles."Perley Lee and his wife Mabelle had a greenhouse and retail store at 120 Stark Avenue next door to their home. In the mid-’80s the Siranian family at 103 Stark Ave. had a small greenhouse, and just down the road, beyond the current Dover Chevrolet complex, John Viola, who worked many years for the Lees, had two small greenhouses behind his family home.A larger, longer-lived business was Meader's Greenhouses at 21 Back River Road (the remains of some of the greenhouse buildings are still visible). The Meader family had deep roots in the Dover area. John lived at the corner of Back River and the Durham Road. Herbert lived just beyond the greenhouse property at 31 Back River Road (the ...

Protesters hand flowers to Madison Police Officers: "Remarkable and kind moment" - WMTV
State Street, encourage the group to leave, and inform them that the protest was over. The woman made clear that whoever remained would know that their decision could carry a consequence. The woman then headed down to the top of State Street, and I could hear her voice in what I understood to be an attempt to speak with the group. The woman returned back to our position, and she wished SET a safe night. Her group also handed out flowers to SET officers, and I do not know an officer who turned the offer down. Many officers carried the flowers on them during the subsequent clear of State Street (after looting broke out)."
"Obviously, this week has been extremely challenging for so many. I thought it was incredibly brave for these three individuals to approach the police, and offer a gesture of kindness. This demonstrated to me what almost all of us recognize - many of those in the crowd wish to lawfully express their constitutional liberties, and only a small group of people are causing the chaos we have seen. SET is absolutely committed to protecting lawful protest, and this commitment is why I joined the team. Unfortunately, SET's responsibilities to public safety limit our ability to engage in a conversation about what is happening while in hard gear, but many SET officers noted how remarkable and kind this moment was."
