Front Porch: Caldwell's Lorie Jakubowski honored with Good Neighbor Award for garden
We’ll finish off this tidbit with sincere congratulations to Laurie (please refrain from clogging up the street when you go over to take a gander), as well as a final note from Linda:
“Laurie’s love of her yard and the containers shows the creative hard work that is worthy of Nampa Garden Club’s Good Neighbor Award, for which we are honored. Thank you, Laurie Jakubowski, for all your hard work.”
Idaho Business Review accepting Women of the Year nominations
The Idaho Business Review is now accepting nominations for its Women of the Year award, which is meant to recognize women who make a difference in Idaho. Honorees will be featured in a Women of the Year magazine and be honored at an awards event in February.
A press release I received about it said that “Women of the Year honors women who are shaping Idaho’s economic and community well-being through their outstanding leadership, mentoring efforts and community involvement.”
So the big question is whether you know anyone who fits that description — which I’m sure is a “yes.” Nominations are due by Nov. 14 and can be made online at idahobusinessreview.com/nominate. The nominee will also have to do some paperwork, which can be found at that same website.

Cabela's cancels contract to buy Summerville site
Charleston area for sellers of hunting, fishing and other outdoor goods.
In addition to numerous locally owned shops, Gander Mountain opened in the Promenade at Northwoods shopping center in North Charleston in 2014, and Field & Stream, an offshoot of Dick’s Sporting Goods, opened in August near Tanger Outlets.
Also, Cabela’s rival Bass Pro Shops announced plans in late 2013 to open a 130,000- to 150,000-square-foot store at the Ingleside development near I-26 and U.S. Highway 78. Construction has not yet started. A Bass Pro Shops spokesman did not return a call or email for comment Wednesday on the status of the store, which has been delayed by wetlands permitting issues.
“It is our understanding that Bass Pro is under contract with the developer to purchase the property within Ingleside Plantation and the project is in the early design phase,” North Charleston city spokesman Ryan Johnson said in written statement Wednesday.
1,000 ways to celebrate
A downtown Charleston flower shop will offer a bouquet of events to mark its 20th anniversary.
From 2-6 p.m. Friday, Tiger Lily at 131 Spring St. will give away 1,000 flowers and offer free champagne, cake, organic cotton candy and door prizes.
Tiger Lily, started in a vacant 1920s-era gas station in 1995, will give visitors two bouquets — one to keep and enjoy and one to pass along to someone else as an act of kindness as part of its “Petal It Forward” celebration.
The flower shop, owned by Manny and Clara Gonzales, started its first year with $150,000 in sales and one employee. It now boasts sales of more than $1.6 million a year, employs 25 and calls itself the largest florist in South Carolina.
“It’s never been easy, but it’s been mostly fun,” Manny Gonzales said. “We’re glad we live and work in such an amazing place as Charleston.”
The owners have tried to give back over the years as well. He serves on the board of directors of the Society of American Florists, and she has been instrumental in raising more than $1 million for Trident Technical College. The Tiger Lily was once named “Charleston’s Small Business of the Year.”

4. The Hardest Year So Far
Jennifer Hicks’ twin three-year-old daughters, Karen and Krista, drowned in Gander Lake during the summer of 2002 while in the care of their father, Nelson Hart. Hart was charged with their murder after a police sting and was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison, but appealed his conviction and was ordered a new trial. The Supreme Court of Canada ruled the evidence against Hart procured by the sting was inadmissible, and the murder charges were withdrawn due to insufficient evidence. Hicks, now divorced from Hart, has written a book, “Mr. Big: The Investigation into the Deaths of Karen and Krista Hart,” with TV journalist Colleen Lewis. In the book, she tells of her life with Hart, whom she describes as abusive, the day her daughters drowned, and the court case that ensued. “I think he did it out of jealousy,” Hicks told The Telegram about Hart’s role in the twins’ death. “He told me I cared more about the girls than I did him.”
5. McCann moves to mainland
Singer/songwriter and former Great Big Sea member Séan McCann moved away from the province for the first time over the summer, finding it hard to make a full-time living here. He and his family are now based in an Ottawa suburb, and he’s playing gigging non-stop. “I can drive an hour in any direction and play a show. I miss Newfoundland but I wasn’t getting the work. I love what I do and I want to keep doing it, and it’s important to be able to do it without the heavy travel expenses,” he said. He said he’ll be home for anyone who needs him, most recently to perform a show with Easter Seals musicians.

8. Life of Lewis
Kevin Lewis: teacher, actor, husband, father, mental health services consumer and author of a book telling of all those things, called “A Paperboy’s Story,” published over the summer. With wit, comedy, tragedy and catharsis, Lewis tells of his childhood imagination, his time in St. Bon’s on his way into the priesthood (“It never quite worked out,” he said), his addiction to valium, and the death of his wife and son of lung disease (a second son passed away from the same disease after the book was written).
9. Beardless Shanneyganock frontman Chris Andrews causes social media stir
Some commenters questioned whether it was worth an article, but the numbers prove it definitely was: Shanneyganock frontman Chris Andrews shaved off his 23-year-old beard for dental surgery, and became instantly unrecognizable, to the point where his bandmates jokingly made a missing person post on their Facebook page. “If you see this person on Water Street at such places as Erin’s Pub, do not be afraid of him, he’s harmless,” they wrote, alongside a photo of a freshly-shaven Andrews. The clean shave didn’t last long, and Andrews’ beard is back in full force.
10. Local woman wins big on ‘Let’s Make a Deal’
St. John’s resident Angela Bailey attended a taping of ‘Let’s Make a Deal in L.A. last June, and won some great prizes: a trip for two to Rio de Janeiro, a washer and dryer and two Vespa scooters, worth a total of more than US$22,000. “I couldn’t believe I was on ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ and I had just won. I was so overwhelmed and just overjoyed.” Bailey had to keep her... (The Telegram)
