Brownsville florist has deep roots
BROWNSVILLE – What started as a business selling artificial flowers is now the only store left in Brownsville where you can get fresh flower arrangements.Anthony Madison started his business roughly 35 years ago, originally running it out of his home in Chalybeate.“I actually ran it on my back porch, and I started out only selling silk flowers,” he said.For a florist selling fresh flowers, a cooler to preserve the flowers is essential. At the time, Madison didn’t have the money for one.Opening Madison’s Flowers in his Chalybeate home came nearly two decades after he was last involved with floristry, he said.Madison got his start in the floristry business at 15 when Marguerite Moody, the owner of Marguerite’s Flowers, unexpectedly offered him a job.“I actually went in one day to pay a flower bill for my dad and she asked me would I like to have a job,” he said.At the time, Madison said he was mainly employed as a “gofer” but learned the basics of floral arrangement.For 17 years, he work...

MLK Day shootings of 8 people in park sparked by rival gangs, police say
The gunfire that caused chaos at a Brownsville park and left eight people shot during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration was an exchange between rival gangs, police said Tuesday.And all eight victims, ranging in age from 11 to 30, were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, investigators believe.“All the people struck by rounds were innocent bystanders,” Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said.Tuesday, a day after the carnage at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, some of the victims came forward and shared their experience, while community leaders met at the park to express their outrage and beg anyone with information to come forward.Remarkably, all the shooting victims survived. Police said only one person who was shot was in critical condition. Yet Tuesday, 20-year-old Gerome Battle was well enough to address the media from his hospital bed at Jackson Memorial Hospital.Battle was shot in the buttocks, with the bullet coming to rest near his bladder. He underwent surgery Monday.“I took off running an... (Miami Herald)Dec 15, 2016
Caledonia florist Mary Ann Schmitz is ready to retire after 65 years
Welscher said of working at a flower shop.
“I have to thank the people from places like Caledonia, Brownsville, Hokah, Houston, Spring Grove, Etizen, Freeburg and New Albin,” said Schmitz, who has three part-time employees. “They’ve all been very good to us. Without their help, we’d have never made it.”
Schmitz said she always has loved flowers, and their smell. Pink roses are her favorites.
“I like everything but sunflowers,” Schmitz said. “I’ll put them in (if asked), but I don’t like them because they tip their heads and look shabby.”
Roses, carnations and lilies have been the shop’s biggest-selling flowers, Schmitz said.
Mother’s Day is the shop’s busiest season, and Valentine’s Day is second.
Besides cut flowers, Mary Ann’s Floral & Gift sells cemetery urns, plants, seeds, insecticides, fertilizer, other gardening supplies and party balloons.
Schmitz still has the first item that her shop ever sold – a small ceramic planter in the shape of a woman. Her aunt, Tillie Ernster, bought the planter.
“She always kept it on display in her house,” Schmitz said. “When she died (in 1968), her kids gave it to me.”

Brownsville residents continue Day of the Dead tradition
Gone, but not forgotten.
On Day of the Dead, some residents of Brownsville took time Wednesday to visit the Old City Cemetery and pay respects to family and friends.
Linda Limon continues to honor the tradition her grandmother introduced to her.
“She would make a point to paint the tombstones and bring flowers,” Limon said. “Back then, people used to sell flowers outside the cemetery and we’d spend a whole day here.”
Limon said they would walk to the cemetery with their paint, pails, and soap and clean the tombs.
Rey Flores has also visited the graves annually to honor his mother, father and more recently, his cousin.
“I am praying for them so that they can leave purgatory and go to heaven,” Flores said. “I’m praying that God forgives them for their sins.”
At the Historic Brownsville Museum, a huge altar was put together for the Dia de Los Muertos Celebration held earlier in the week.
“It’s a good way to remember our loved ones that passed away. We pay tribute by remembering what they liked to eat, drink and do,” event coordinator Rosendo Escareno... (Brownsville Herald)
