Sweeney Attends Grand Opening of Inclusive Vaseful Flower Shop - InsiderNJ
Our communities are continuing to become more inclusive for people with disabilities,” said Senator Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland). “In many ways, this has been my life’s work. But that doesn’t merely mean putting a ramp alongside a stairwell, or greater educational opportunities, it also means a greater breadth of employment options for everyone.
“Community Options has done incredible work over the years to help the developmentally disabled realize their value as hard-working members of our society. Their steadfast commitment and advocacy has helped educate and train countless individuals with developmental disabilities, providing them support and opportunities they would not have received without this organization. Everyone deserves to live the fullest lives they can, socially and professionally, and businesses like the Vaseful Flower Shop make this possible.”
For 30 years, Community Options has developed residential and employment support for people with severe disabilities. Community Options believes in the dignity of every person, and in the freedom of all people to experience the highest degree of self-determination.
“I’m incredibly proud of everyone’s work that made opening another location in New Jersey possible,” said Robert Stack, President and CEO. “We could not have done this without the support and advocacy of our community leaders, particularly Senate President Sweeney. I look forward to working together in the years ahead as we strive to make everywhere in the state, but particularly the ... Aug 17, 2018

She said this is the first time the organization has been asked to be the program's recipient.

Don't be fooled by these pretty invasive flowers that are bad for Maine
Olmstead said, adding that a colleague first noticed abundant populations of the iris along the Spurwink River in Cumberland County. "He also found it not just in the salt marsh areas along the river but also forested wetlands. He documented a doubling of the plants in a year. It can be a very aggressive plant."
Jewelweed, swallow-wort can take over
Then there's ornamental jewelweed, which also is known as Himalayan balsam, and is native to India and the western Himalaya. The annual with large pink or purple flowers looks a lot like Maine's native jewelweed, which has orange flowers, but the pink one "will take over a landscape," Jackson said. It also may attract bee pollinators away from native plants. Olmstead said that it has started to settle in to pockets of Maine, including the Rockland area.
"The pink jewelweed is very abundant locally in that area," she said. "Folks there might be surprised to hear that plant is a new threat. But really you don't find that plant downeast. It's a great opportunity for folks to become aware and take quick action against it."

The third plant on her list is black swallow-wort, a member of the milkweed family that is native to southwestern Europe. It's a perennial vine with small black flowers.
"It is such a pretty plant," Jackson said. "And so few plants have naturally black flowers."
But its good looks definitely belie its more negative qualities. Even though it is in the milkweed family and has a seed that looks similar to the common milkweed, it is toxic to monarch butterflies. It also can choke out native plants.
"It has a very smothering growth habit," Olmstead said. "It climbs other vegetation. It can really block light and reduce the vigor of the other vegetation. It's a very aggressive vine that is particularly harmful in an open sun environment."
So far, black swallow-wort is mostly limited to Maine's southern coast. The Casco Bay area has been hit by it "very badly," Olmstead said, and it has spread east to areas around Damariscotta and Newcastle. But it is on the move.
"Unfortunately, it's making its way inland," she said. "It's been located in Augusta, and people found it in the Sebago Lake region last summer. Because the seed is so small, it's easy to transport."
What to do if you find them
If people notice these plants in Maine, there are different strategies to take, the experts said. If they find them on municipal, state or federal property, they are encouraged to take photos and make a public report on the iMapInvasives website.
"Public reports are super helpful for us to understand where plants are distributed in the United States," Olmstead said.
If the plants are on their own property, people can take a more aggressive approach. According to Jackson, the best thing to do as soon as a homeowner notices a plant they've never seen before is to get it identified. If they can't do so on their own, they can head to their local University of Maine Cooperative Extension office to consult with the horticulturists there. Then, as soon as the plants hav...

Police: Woman arrested after gift cards stolen from Fayetteville cancer patients
Friday. It was not immediately clear if Flowers was an employee or visitor to the cancer center.She was booked into the Cumberland County Detention Center and released on a $20,000 unsecured bond, police said in a written statement.The cards were in gift baskets locked in glass display cases in the lobby of the cancer treatment center, and police said that, between Jan. 19 and Jan. 22, someone gained access to the cases – apparently with a key because there was no sign of forced entry.The thief or thieves made off with more than $900 in gift cards to local businesses, such as Chris's Steak House on Raeford Road, where someone used a card for $100 in food."It hurts because we love our patients like they're our family members," said April Bratcher, physician office manager at the cancer treatment center. "When they come into the cancer center, we love on them, and to have someone steal something from the cancer patients is very heartless."Fayetteville police initially said they wanted to question a couple in the case, but they later said they didn't need to speak with the couple, and no charges were filed against them.Some of the stolen gift cards have been replaced by merchants who found out what happened, but others could not be replaced, officials said."The money that we raise goes back to our cancer patients for our Ribbon Walk, and we use those funds to help with mortgages, give gas vouchers, (pay) light bills, utility bills, anything that they need while they're getting treatment," Bratcher s...

Roger Mercer: Some plants have wings to help imaginations fly
There aren't many winged plants, but the few that exist are all treasures.May favorite is the winged elm, Ulmus alatus. It is native to Cumberland County where it has not been attacked by Dutch elm disease. And excellent specimens of the small tree can be found in the Cape Fear Botanical Garden .A few years ago I collected a few of the tens of thousands of seeds the trees produce in early spring and started a tree for myself.Last week, with great regret, I cut the tree down. It was growing trunk-to-trunk with a 35-foot heavy-flowering, golden rain tree that was intended to be there. Somehow, one of my seeds escaped and ended up in the wrong place. The winged elm had to go. And now I will have to start over with a seed or seedling.Since I was a child I've been fascinated by winged elm. It's a shame I don't have the tree on my six acres now. I do grow an American elm or two that are nearing mature size. I found these Dutch elm disease-resistant, elegant trees in a grove of resistant elms 35 years ago about 100 yards from Lake Brandt in Greensboro.All of the Greensboro trees have continued to exhibit disease resistance here in Fayetteville.As a youth, I used to marvel at the intricate patterns winged elm branches made. And in spring, I'd wait with eager anticipation for the remarkable number of seeds to drop. When they fell, I knew the goldfinches would soon arrive in flocks to eat them.For many years I've grown the compact form of winged euonymus, Euonymus a... (Fayetteville Observer)
