Obituary: Joseph Walter Fortenberry - Oak Ridge Today
Thaddeus S. Fortenberry, daughter-in-law Leyla Megrelidze, and granddaughter Asta Eeva Elizabeth of Austin, Texas. Joe leaves his sister Mary Ellen Clark and her husband Don Clark, along with nieces Julie Holland and Terri Kerley of Knoxville and Steffanie Benson-Elliott of Altamonte Springs, Florida; nieces Stephanie Hall and Lindsay Morton and families; and nephews Ryan and Christopher Kittrell and families, all of Atlanta, Georgia.
Joe was preceded in death by his mother Stella, his father Joseph Hubert, and his younger sister Debra Fortenberry.
Joe will be missed, but the family is comforted knowing that he is free from the pain and discomfort he had experienced for years.
A celebration of Joe’s life will be held in June 2021 in Knoxville, Tennessee, with the dates to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joe’s name to Sacred Heart Home in Hyattsville, Maryland, are welcomed. Sacred Heart is where Joe called home for the last 12 years. The wonderful staff and the Ministry of Sisters, Servants of Mary Immaculate, made Joe feel safe and secure and introduced him to the beautiful teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The address for Sacred Heart Home is 5805 Queens Chapel Road, Hyattsville, MD 20782.

Where to see bluebonnets and wildflowers in Dallas-Fort Worth while social distancing - culturemap.com
Fort Worth Botanic Garden are not options.
Some DFW parks and natural areas that remain open — like Tandy Hills Hills Natural Area in Fort Worth, Clark Gardens Botanical Park in Weatherford, and Cottonwood Park in Irving — are pretty spots for walks among flowers. But parks attract visitors, and visitors attract groups, and groups are a bad thing.
What's blooming whereA family drive out to a field or a bike ride down a country road might just be the only real way to view bluebonnets in the age of social distancing.
Proska says besides bluebonnets, we'll see Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket, Evening primrose, Mexican Hat, and Coreopsis blooming now. Photo-worthy patches have sprung up along roads in Mansfield, Azle, and areas around Ennis — even if the official trails are closed.
According to posts in the Facebook group Texas Bluebonnets and Wildflowers, Indian Paintbrush (which can be various shades of red, white, orange, yellow, and purple) are abundant in far west Fort Worth, off Interstates 30 and 20, toward Weatherford.
Each year, bluebonnets paint the landscape along highways 183, 121, and 114 near DFW Airport. And they dot stretches of I-30 within the Fort Worth and Arlington city limits, too.
For those willing to drive a bit out of town, pretty patches and gorgeous fields have been spotted in Plano. One is near the J.C. Penney headquarters on Legacy Drive. Another is along the Bluebonnet Trail Greenbelt, just east of where the trail crosses Custer Road. Frisco's got some pretty ones just outside Zion Cemetery.
For those making it a day-long adventure, farther out of the Metroplex, there are patches at the entrance to Mallard Park in Lavon (about 30 miles north of McKinney) and fields of wildflowers off Highway 75 in Denison and Sherman, spotters say.
Practical considerationsBefore you head out on a country drive, remember we are living in a world without pit stops at roadside Whataburgers. Plan snacks, drinks, and potential restroom situations accordingly.
Also, remember the "groups" rule. If you approach a pretty patch and another family is taking photos, ride on by.
Some regular guidelines to keep in mind, too: Don't trespass on private property. Don't pick the flowers. Step gently so you don't squish them, and don't leave anything behind. Also, beware of snakes, fire ants, and other critters that might be hiding among the flowers.

Flowers for Drew: Remembering the life of an editor, writer and friend - Delaware State News - Delaware State News
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 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.

Bob Shane, last original member of the Kingston Trio, dies at 85 - Los Angeles Times
Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark became a perennial best-seller, writing or co-writing “A Stranger Is Watching,” “Daddy’s Little Girl” and more than 50 other favorites. Her sales topped 100 million copies, and many of her books, including “A Stranger is Watching” and “Lucky Day,” were adapted for movies and television. She was 92.
Fred Silverman was the head of programming at CBS, where he championed a string of hits including “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “All in the Family,” “MASH” and “The Jeffersons.” Later at ABC, he programmed “Laverne & Shirley,” “The Love Boat,” “Happy Days” and the 12-hour epic saga “Roots.” He was 82.
Kobe Bryant was just 18 when he started playing for the Lakers, but by the end of his 20-year career — all of it as a Laker — the Black Mamba was a five-time world champion, two-time Olympic gold medalist and 18-time All-Star. His post-basketball career included an Oscar for the animated short “Dear Basketball” and a series of children’s books that became New York Times bestsellers. He was 41.

It's November, and Southcentral Alaska's unusually warm fall has some plants putting out spring buds - Anchorage Daily News
And that, in turn, could have consequences for other species. He said fewer willows could be bad news for a specific type of bee — the Clark’s andrena (Andrena clarkella) — which has evolved to feed specifically on willows. "They wake up out of dormancy at about the same time as the willows do,” he said. “Their timing is pretty in sync.” There’s scant research on Alaska’s springtime bees and even less on the impact of willows that bud out too early. However, Fulkerson said there’s little doubt that the early pussy willows are a sure sign plants are noticing the unseasonably high temperatures. “It’s not too surprising these warm temperatures are confusing these plants,” he said. “Plants are a really good indicator of what’s happening in these environments." And there’s no sign the warm weather will go away. According to Ludwig, higher than normal temperatures are likely to remain in place across Southcentral Alaska for at least the next seven to 10 days. “It’s going to stay warm.” ...
