'Place between heaven and earth:' Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland delivers flower ministry - Clarion Ledger
Dan H. Broughton, a local home health business owner, combined their medical and business knowledge and established Hospice of Central Mississippi, the first not-for-profit home hospice in central Mississippi, in 1989.
In 1992, with the help of the Willing Hearts Circle of the Kings Daughter Medical Center, Hospice of Central Mississippi opened another center in Brookhaven.
In 1997, Hospice of Central Mississippi and Whispering Pines Hospice of South Jackson merged and Hospice Ministries resulted.
The Rev. Don Fortenberry recalled that Whispering Pines Hospice initially served patients with HIV/AIDS but, as medical treatment improved for HIV/AIDS patients, it enlarged its focus to include patients facing the end of life. The Catholic Diocese of Mississippi, the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi and the Methodist Conference of Mississippi established Whispering Pines.
A June 14, 1999 photo Clarion Ledger photo shows Bishop William Houck of the Catholic Diocese of Jackson, with the Rev. Jerry McBride of St. James Episcopal Church and the Fortenberry of the Mississippi Area of the United Methodist Conference by his side, sprinkling blessed water during the dedication of the Ridgeland facility.
“Hospice Ministries has developed a reputation for quality, compassionate care of people at the end of life,” said Fortenberry, who served on the board at Whispering Pines Hospice and chaired the Hospice Ministries Board for several years. “People who go to work there and stay for many years see it as a ministry. That makes all the difference in how they help people deal with impending death.”
In addition to care at its facility in Ridgeland, Hospice Ministries also offers in-home hospice care as well as hospice care for patients in nursing homes, assisted living homes and other residential care settings. The McLean Fletcher Center at 12 Northtown Drive in Jackson provides programs for grieving children and teens and also falls under the umbrella of Hospice Ministries.
The in-patient facility of Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland has room to care for 40 patients and that care extends to emotional support for their families. Care is focused on the patient’s priorities, needs and values, and services are designed to ease pain and alleviate symptoms.
“Thirty years ago, hospice was something new,” said Houston. “More people understand it but it’s still new to some people.”
Hospice Ministries accepts private insurance and Medicare and uses Medicare guidelines for admitting patients. “A patient has to have a life-limiting illness with a life expectancy of six months or less,” Britt said.
The in-patient facility in Ridgeland includes a chapel with windows designed by Andy Young of Pearl River Glass Studio in Jackson. The chapel was named in honor of Fortenberry after he completed his service on the board.
“The chapel represents the religious base of the facility as does the name,” Fortenberry said. “It’s a very pretty setting that can be used for memorial services.”
Community organizations have assisted with updates to the facility, Britt said.

In The Garden | Tiger swallowtail butterflies abundant this summer - Mansfield News Journal
Other states prevented from planting due to weather include Arkansas, Michigan and Mississippi.
• Northwest Ohio was hit hardest for wet fields, namely Fulton and Williams counties.
• In Ohio, a total of more than 1.5 million acres that normally would be planted were unplanted this year — a total of 881,000 acres of corn and 599,000 of soybeans.
Our hope is we don't get a couple more back-to-back seasons like 2019
We realize there could be more wet seasons ahead, but hope that doesn't happen. Farmers nationwide appreciate all of the support during this tough year.
• The most beautiful flowers grow in rocky soils and crevices.
• Humans have one mouth and two ears; there is a message there.

These Flowers Have Been Growing for 103 Years - The New York Times
Belma Fashions. On a recent morning, the firm’s 61-year-old president, Warren Brand, was leading a tour there for a group of fashion students from Mississippi State University. They had come to see a unicorn, a scrappy holdout, a working museum of old-fashioned artisanship that somehow had to turn a modern-day profit.Schmalberg, a fourth-generation family business founded in 1916, makes artificial flowers from silk and other fabrics for clients including milliners, theatrical costume designers, fashion stylists, bridal houses and designer labels like Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. The flowers adorned the Thom Browne hybrid suit-dress that Zazie Beetz wore to the Met Gala, and they have decorated the angel wings of a Victoria’s Secret runway model and the uniforms of Marriott employees, who wear leather camellias pinned to their suits. One year, Schmalberg made 200,000 tiny silk petals for Vera Wang to stitch into its dresses. More recently, the firm created leather leaves for the display windows of the jeweler Harry Winston’s Paris boutique.ImageWarren Brand, left, and his son Adam, who run M & S Schmalberg.CreditVincent Tullo for The New York TimesBut in the age of fast fashion and offshoring, the business of Manhattan fabric flora is not exactly bustling.
