We want to gift these projects to beautify and nourish our community and be a beacon of hope in some pretty tough times,” she said.They see endless site opportunities, including places that provide support and refuge for those suffering from troubles ranging from physical abuse to addiction.“Beauty belongs everywhere, especially in the dark,” Wethington said.Their plans also extend a branch into the area of events, where both women have experience and expertise.“We will be offering kids camps and senior citizen events with educational components and take-away projects such as seed planting and paper-making and flower-pressing,” said O’Steen. “These outreach projects are really the core of what we do. The business side of Corners of Eden is what helps us get there.”Local businesses can display Corners of Eden installations or sponsor Eden Elsewhere projects and summer camps.“Everyone is welcome to sponsor a Plant for a Project with many available price points to choose from. Donations are welcomed and encouraged for the Eden Elsewhere projects,” she added. “We will be looking for as many grant opportunities as we are able and continue to search for funding for these projects. We are excited for what Corners of Eden and the Eden Elsewhere Project has to offer New Bern’s citizens and beyond.”O’Steen has more than 25 years of hands-on horticultural experience.

Robert Mercer, CEO who helped win Goodyear War, dies at age 96 - Akron Beacon Journal
I tried to tell him [Goldsmith] that he was not just fooling with another company, another takeover target," Mercer said in "Wheels of Fortune," the Beacon Journal book on the history of the city’s rubber and tire industry. "We’ve got 132,000 employees who want to see you go home. You bring nothing to the party."Mercer, Goodyear and Akron prevailed against Goldsmith.Rick Reiff, part of a Pulitzer Prize-winning team of Beacon Journal reporters covering the attempted takeover, recalled speaking with Mercer the night the company agreed to pay "greenmail" to be rid of Goldsmith.Reiff said when they talked it was obviously the end of a long ordeal for the CEO.Mercer wanted to speak freely and let the Akron community share in the news, he said. One detail Mercer disclosed was that Goldsmith could not find the Goodyear stock certificates he owned when it came time to close the deal, Reiff said."It was very candid. It was honest," said Reiff, who recently retired as editor of the Orange County [California] Business Journal.Mercer "was a dyed in the wool Goodyear guy," Reiff said. "They don’t make CEOs like that any more. Or very few. He was a Goodyear lifer."Doug Oplinger, also part of the Beacon Journal’s coverage of the takeover and the paper’s retired managing editor, recalled Mercer talking about using his mechanical engineering background when he was a young Goodyear salesman. A client, Maytag, was having problems with a washing machine model. Apparently a tiny pulley that used a Goodyear belt wasn’t working properly. Mercer took a look and realized the pulley system required a notched, not smooth, belt."He designed it and saved the day for Goodyear and for Maytag," Oplinger said. "He took great pride in being an engineer who understood sales."The greenmail Goodyear paid to Goldsmith came at a high price, not counting the tens of millions of dollars the raider received to walk away. Mercer, who spent much of his time and energy to diversify Goodyear from slow-growth tires into areas such as oil and gas production and a $1 billion oil pipeline, was forced to spin off significant parts of the company to pay for the fight, which had saddled Goodyear with billions of dollars in debt.And where a top goal had been to create a more diversified corporation, Goodyear was forced to refocus on its core, tire making — something that Goldsmith had said the company needed to do. Goodyear Aerospace went to Loral Corp. for $588 million, and the Motor Wheel division was sold for $175 million to Lemmerz. Other non-tire subsidiaries were also sold off. Goodyear eventually sold the Celeron oil and gas business to a Texas company in 1998 for $420 million.Under Mercer, Goodyear introduced its first run-flat tire and also radial racing tires that debuted at the 1987 Indianapolis 500.Decrying takeov...
