Historically Speaking: Florists a big part of Dover -

Nashua several years previously where he had been involved in several floral enterprises. Upon arrival he opened the Sunnyside Conservatories on Rutland Street "a 4-minute walk from the Sawyer Depot."He abandoned this business in favor of the Garrison Hill location which, by 1905, he had turned into the largest greenhouse operation in the state, with 14 glass structures and several acres of outside plantings (he had bought additional land from Joe Ham). The size of the operation was such that he was able to open and supply retail outlets in Portland and Augusta, Portsmouth and Laconia. He put down more roots by marrying a local woman, Ellen "Nellie" Vittum, and he built a sizable home adjacent to the greenhouse complex. In addition to growing flowers he was an active member of the Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, and a relatively exclusive organization, the Society of the Colonial Wars (perhaps the male equivalent of the Daughters of the American Revolution?).In 1921, Howe sold the business to Elwill Shortridge, a prominent Dover entrepreneur, owner of the C.E. Brewster Co., wholesale druggists, which was located in a building at the corner of Chestnut and Fourth streets, now the site of St. Mary's Parish Hall. At one time Shortridge also served as president of Merchants National Bank and president of the Dover Realty Co.

As a young man he worked in the business, served in World War II, and upon his return an...

State: Vermont Gas likely won't face fines for killing flowers

Public Service asked that Vermont Gas also face penalties for an apparent violation of the permit for the pipeline, which is called the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project. The Public Service Board issued a certificate of public good — the permit authorizing the pipeline — with the condition that Vermont Gas obtain all necessary permits before beginning work. Because the company had no permit to take endangered species, it violated its certificate, lawyers for the Agency of Natural Resources argued to the board. The agency filed its request earlier this month that the board investigate the incident and pursue enforcement. (The Manchester Journal)
