Flowers enlightens audience on local voting systems - Village News Online
Voter Justice and is a columnist for black newspapers across the country. His work dates back to the ‘90s when he served as vice president for Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition.
The intent behind this program was to enlighten people on the importance of voting and to educate people on the structure of the voting system in Virginia. Flowers started off by giving a history lesson dating back to 1870, when the 15th Amendment was passed and blacks received the right to vote. “Blacks had the privilege to vote, not the right to vote,” said Flowers. Many oppressive obstacles still prevent blacks from voting. Voting didn’t become completely fair and equal until the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965; which later became less effective after the Shelby County v. Holder case, which essentially made the Voting Rights Act ineffective and allows states to make changes to their systems without informing the voters.
Flowers not only gave the audience many historical facts such as those, but also uttered much rebellious rhetoric that was influenced by his mentor, Jesse Jackson. “America is a republic, not a democracy,” he said. “Who owns the voting machines?”. He challenged the governor on topics such as allowing felons to vote, automatic weapon control and restructuring the Electoral College. He believes felons should be able to vote and that the popular votes should elect the president, not the Electoral College.
“I’d suggest a civic voting class to inform the peop... Feb 27, 2020

PARMA TWP., MI – A seasonal product offering at western Jackson County's first recreational marijuana shop is spruced up to look like a bouquet of a dozen roses.But instead of traditional flowers, the bouquets at Kinship Cannabis Co. feature a different kind of flower – 12 pre-rolled marijuana joints. The $50 product – along with Valentine’s Day baskets with other forms of marijuana – have been a hit, Kinship principal owner Curt Molino said."Anything we can do to be creatively marketing ourselves and giving somebody something that's a little extra than the other guy, that's what we try to do," Molino said.Kinship opened at 2199 N. Concord Road, just off I-94, for recreational marijuana sales on Jan. 30. It’s the first recreational marijuana shop in Parma Township and third in Jackson County. The other two, Choice Labs and 20 Past 4, are in Leoni Township.This is Kinship’s first location, but the business plans to open additional marijuana shops in Monroe County, near where Molino is from.Of Molino’s four business partners, two of them are...

In one of Seattle’s most threatened neighborhoods, a flower shop still blooms - The Seattle Times
Central District families. As the neighborhood changed, so did her clientele, but Wesley kept on, a mainstay on the corner of 23rd and Jackson for 28 years, her bright flowers and signs cheerfully calling out to passersby on the busy intersection. Yet Wesley’s story serves as a microcosm of the shifting demographics and challenging landscape for Black business owners in the Central District.
In 2014, the first bloom began to come off the rose for Wesley. Her longtime customer, Southwest Mortuary — one of the last Black-owned funeral homes — was purchased by Bonney-Watson, which led to a decline in her funeral flower business.
The second hit came in 2015, when a city construction project disrupted traffic on 23rd Avenue and created so much chaos Wesley said she lost tens of thousands of dollars in business over nearly two years. While the city eventually gave her $25,000 (from federal dollars) to mitigate the lost business, the damage had already been done.
After that project finished, Wesley got another blow — her building was going to be razed to create new apartments. She would have to move.
In April 2018, her shop was relocated with help from the apartment developer to a smaller location on the corner of 23rd and Cherry, across from the Garfield Community Center. With little parking or foot traffic, her business struggled.
“I’ve been suffering ever since we moved here,” Wesley said from her shop. “Continually losing money.”
After many setbacks, she got behind on rent and in November her landlord gave her a 14-day eviction notice. As news of Wesley’s potential eviction sprea... Feb 1, 2020
Flowers for Drew: Remembering the life of an editor, writer and friend - Delaware State News - Delaware State News
Drew learned, was staking out a good spot. “The early bird gets the berm,” he wrote.
University of Delaware journalism professor Dennis Jackson recognized Drew’s talent early on and recommended him to the State News in 1992 when we had an opening for a sportswriter.
Not long after, we moved Drew to a role as a news editor for our sister paper, The Daily Whale, in his hometown of Lewes. It was there that Drew really started to shine, putting his knowledge and appreciation of the area into play.
He appreciated the Sussex County landscape as much as its unique culture.
Perhaps that made it easy for him to interview Dover International Speedway builder Melvin Joseph — a man who, despite having only a sixth-grade education, started his Georgetown construction business with just a dump truck and a shovel.
“They had Sussex connections, they had common ground,” said Mr. Nardone. “You can’t write about someone unless you get to know them in some way. Drew always found common ground and found a way to relate to people.
“He did that with Roy Klein, the ‘Duke of Kent.’ I think he appreciated what those people accomplished.”
Drew spotted quirky stuff and found ways to work it into his stories.
There was the story he did on mosquito control. “They had a young guy run across the marsh and then they would count the bites,” he remembered.
In 1999, he did an amazing piece on “The Dual” – what Delaware old-timers used to call 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 ... Jan 4, 2020
