Master Gardener: M is for Michaelmas daisies — asters for fall color - The Daily World
Among the many choices of A. novi-belgii are Persian Rose (rose pink) and semi-double Professor Kippenburg (lavender blue). The robust Climax variety bears large sprays of single medium-blue blossoms on stems 6 feet tall.
Aster x frikartii Monch, native to the Himalayas, is planted in other parts of the perennial beds in my garden. It is upright 16 inches tall and wide with purple blue sprays of 2-inch-wide flowers. Their growth habit differs a bit from many of the above plants and are the finest, most useful and widely adapted of perennials.
In large borders or among shrubs, tall asters with their abundant color are invaluable as companion plantings. Hardy chrysanthemums and asters are complementary with their contrasting colors of peach, yellow and rusty reds. Clouds of coreopsis, switch grass and other grasses, black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) and the burgundy seed pods of penstemons add to the color until frost arrives. Massing several plants of some of these varieties together creates a delicate balance.
At season’s end, a carefully planned palette transitions to blue, gold and burgundy and a colorful finale as winter approaches.
This article, by Master Gardener Dolores Cavanah, is part of an occasional series in which she describes the plants she most admires at her expansive garden at Schafer Meadows, east of Montesano. Visit her during the 2020 WSU Master Gardener Garden Tour on July 18.

Roper St. Francis Hires Mary Toni Flowers As Its First Director of Diversity
Officer’s office.In a letter to Roper St. Francis President and CEO David Dunlap the members said, “The level of intimidation has reached such a climax that we as a group feel threatened and unanimously have lost total confidence in the activities of the office of the CMO.” The bias against African American physicians and double standards imposed on them forced the group to seek legal advice.The letter outlined issues that included damaging members’ reputations, intimidation, interfering with patient management, unfounded complaints about the quality of care minority physicians provide and disregarding and disrespecting minority physicians’ judgement.One physician said the discrimination against the doctors ferments a culture of discrimination that ripples through all levels of patient care and support services. He added that if Black physicians were being discriminated against, it’s reasonable to assume Black employees likely were being discriminated against also. An employee at the system’s Mount Pleasant hospital this week said discrimination, though not as bad, still exists.Flowers said while her role will focus on disparities in healthcare, it must include working to create an environment where all the system’s teammates can do their best work. Diversity, she said, is not just the right thing - it’s the smart thing. (charlestonchronicle.net)Aug 15, 2016

The meeting ended in song. “One Voice” written by Barry Manilow, was dedicated by Shipley in recognition of the sister city relationship how the voices of two communities can join together to improve the lives of our world.
Afterward, Shipley was introduced to artist Lesya Baranska and interior designer Romina Quaglieri, whose work was both on display at the meeting. Mayor Renato Rea and Councilman Francesco Rabotti introduced Councilman Shipley to the Mandolin Museum located in the municipal building and discussed the “Gonfalone” and annual week long cultural sport, similar to the Palio of Siena, where areas of the community complete in various games in traditional garb to win bragging rights for the best in the community.
The Roselle Park Arts Council along with Roselle Park Loves Arts adopted the “Arts Beyond Borders” initiative, to increase awareness of the importance of building the cultural, educational, economic and government relationships that are mutually beneficial to communities around the world.
Arpino Italy, also known as the “Community of Art” has maternal roots with former Roselle Park Mayor Joseph DeIorio. The former mayor and Councilman Shipley first met with Arpino Councilman Francesco Rabotti and Mayor Renator Rea during their visit in 2014 and took the opportunity to discuss both communities and opportunities.

'America is weeping': Taking stock after 3 days of tragedy
It was a devastating climax to three horrific days that Americans are struggling to understand.
At the Justice Department, Attorney General Loretta Lynch called it “a week of profound grief and heartbreaking loss.” In Chicago, Archbishop Blase Cupich said, “Every corner of our land is in the grip of terror.” On Capitol Hill, civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis of Georgia said, “We feel the pain. We feel the hurt.”
Kevin Boyle, an American history professor at Northwestern University, thought of the late 1960s and the 1992 Los Angeles riots, seeing “terrifying parallels” and “echoes for me of other really incredibly tense points.” The presence of video documentation of the incidents calls attention to strife that had previously existed only in agonizing private memories.
“It’s not that the incidents are new,” he said, “it’s our ability to see them.”
At the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C., Kim Hernandez welled with tears Friday as she took stock of the week. “There’s just a really scary sense of humanity right now,” she said. “I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know how we can fix it, but it doesn’t seem like talking is working.”
At Bible Way Temple in Raleigh, N.C., Darnell Dixon Sr., the chief pastor, wondered why more positive change hasn’t come. He presided over the funeral of another black man who was shot by a white officer earlier this year, and was part of a dialogue with police that followed and brought him a sense of healing.
“I started feeling better,” he said. “But yesterday set me back. It bewildered me.”
As rancor grew, a handful of violent incidents against police arose across the country, including the shooting of an officer in Valdosta, Ga. Authorities said a man called 911 to report a break-in, then ambushed the responding officer.
Some lashed out at the movement that was born of police shootings of blacks, and even at President Barack Obama, accusing him of fueling divisions among people of color and whites. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called Black Lives Matter a “terrorist movement.” while U.S. Rep. Roger Williams, a Republican from Texas, said the “spread of misinformation and constant instigation by prominent leaders, including our president, have contributed to the modern-day hostility we are witnessing between the police and those they serve.”
Black Lives Matter organizers condemned the violence in Dallas, and police haven’t given any indication that the shooter had anything to do with the group.
If the gravity of it all seems clear, the road from here does not.
Does the assemblage of killings by police around the country and the resulting Black Lives Matter movement lead to more than candlelight vigils and calls for change? Does the anger that seemingly fueled the shootings in Dallas precipitate and lead to similar attacks on police akin to the Black Panther-style violence of long ago? Is this a turning point or simply a continuation?

Where It Hurts
By Reed Farrel Coleman; G.P. Putnam’s Sons
It’s been two years since Gus Murphy’s son collapsed and died during a game of pickup basketball. Since then, grief has taken a toll on the ex-cop and his family. His once-happy marriage has imploded. His daughter is dabbling in drugs and alcohol. Most of all, Gus just doesn’t know where to put his rage, anger and sorrow. Then a con named Tommy D begs Gus to solve the murder of his son. Gus declines, but when Tommy also turns up dead, his cop instincts kick in, and Gus starts to ask questions. Soon he is caught in a web of deceit and danger that starts on the streets but may climb to the halls of power. Here’s a crackerjack thriller from a writer Lee Child calls “one of the best.”
By Kim Brooks; Counterpoint Berkeley
This searing debut novel takes place in 1941 as the U.S. government, the national press and the American people become increasingly aware of the Nazi persecution of Jews in Europe. An ocean away from the horrors, denial of the events is widespread even among American Jews. That distance is shattered when a Manhattan synagogue mysteriously burns to the ground. In “The Houseguest,” Brooks tells the interlocking stories of several Jewish Americans against the turmoil of the period. Chief among them is Abe Auer, a happily married, less-than-ambitious Utica scrap metal dealer who is pulled into the conflict when he agrees to shelter a refugee, the beautiful, seductive actress Ana Beidler.
