Flowers ready to bloom at Oxford
Flowers attended schools out of district through a Spanish immersion program, first at International School, then Ainsworth Elementary, West Sylvan Middle School and, finally, Lincoln. "My mom was adamant in funneling me to a more high-functioning public education," Flowers says. "She bent over backward to make sure I had that opportunity." Basketball was Flowers' passion through childhood. "One of the first Christmases I can remember I got a Little Tyke hoop," he says. "My favorite movie growing up was 'Space Jam.' Pretty much everywhere I went, basketball was a fixture of life for me. "All the kids I looked up to, and all the figures I looked up to, were basketball players. I had posters all over my walls — Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki ... I loved Allen Iverson." … Flowers was an immediate hit on the hardcourts, becoming a starter early in his freshman season and helping Lincoln to the state championship game. He played his first three seasons for David Adelman and his senior season for Sean Christensen, earning first-team all-state honors during his final campaign in 2011-12. Flowers also was a two-time second-team all-state tournament selection. That freshman success, though, didn't come without some self doubts. Soon after he became a starter, Flowers stewed over a poor performance. "I felt like there was a tremendous amount of pressure on me to be something I didn't quite know if I could be," he says. "I texted Coach Adelman, 'You gotta take me out of the starting lineup. I don't deserve a spot. I'm more than happy to come off the bench.' He texted me back: 'Not only are you a varsity basketball player, you are a starter for this team. Go out there and play your game, and you'll be fine.' "That was a shot of confidence that radically transformed not only the way I fit into that team, but the way I looked at basketball in general. It made Lincoln feel more like a home. I felt like I had somebody in my corner." Says Adelman: "JT was ready to play from the beginning." Adelman says his work ethic helped get Flowers to the top. "I gave him a key to the gym," says Adelman, now an assistant coach for the Denver Nuggets. "He'd get there early and shoot by himself. He'd practice with the freshman team in the morning. He had such a desire to get better." A D V E R T I S I N G Continue reading belowBy the time Flowers was a senior, "he was our most valuable player," says Christensen, now head coach at La Salle Prep. "He was a wing with guard skills. He could do everything — shoot, defend, rebound. He carried our team." Flowers' coaches appreciated him as a person, too. "Very likable," Christensen says. "Has a great smile. Charismatic. Well-liked by everybody. The kids liked him, teachers liked him, administrators liked him." "He's an eclectic kid, unique, involved in a lot of different parts of life," says Adelman, now an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets. "One of the best kids I ever coached. Really motivated, an inspirational guy to coach. He was very smart. When he struggled with classes, it was because he was bored by them. The stuff that interested him, he'd knock out of the park. It's cool years later to see what he's turned into. Just a complete person." Flowers says he feels fortunate to have played for Adelman and Christensen. "It was an absolute joy to learn from Coach Adelman," he says. "He...Jan 19, 2017

Steph and Greg Murray opened a florist shop in Spotswood just two days after their wedding.
Shelves are stocked with Taranaki-sourced goods, including body products from Urenui, jewellery from Inglewood, and coffee from New Plymouth.

Colors were neutrals and greens with touches of gold. The wedding planner was Planning by Kara and Beyond Details handled the florals.
Menu: Beyond Details prepared spinach and feta mushrooms and barbecue chicken cornbread cups during cocktail hour. Dinner featured spinach-and-cheese encrusted tilapia, chicken Francois with lemon basil sauce, Greek salad, sauteed green beans and tortellini with parma rosa.
