Phaedra Trethan Cherry Hill Courier-Post Published 6:27 AM EST Mar 1, 2019 WATERFORD — The room smelled like springtime, even though a harsh February wind blew through the pines outside the Archway School's flower shop, From the Ground Up. Nestled in a trailer at its Atco campus, the shop is where students at the school for intellectually or developmentally disabled children and adults learn the basics for horticulture and floral design. Their arrangements, corsages and centerpieces become accessories and decorations for school functions like graduations and fundraisers. Soon, though, the school will launch a separate, full service retail store in a nearby shopping center, staffed by adult students. On a recent Monday, 16 students trimmed white chrysanthemums and carnations, carefully placing them in mason jars with tree fern and baby's breath. Kris Henle-Blank watched, reminding them to leave enough stem so the delicate flowers could reach the water inside the … [Read more...] about Flower shop will help special needs students grow toward employment

By Taylor Pettaway | [email protected] | Boston Herald PUBLISHED: February 18, 2019 at 8:07 pm | UPDATED: February 19, 2019 at 4:19 am A South End flower shop owner hit by a burglary last month still has a sense of unease, even after police charged a man for the incident. Police arrested 44-year-old Luis Mercado of Boston on Monday morning after he allegedly broke into the Bloom Couture Floral Studio on January 29. “It is good that they caught him, but I don’t think I will feel a change,” said owner Suphoj Chanchew, adding that his biggest concern would be if his shop is targeted again. “I don’t know why he chose me,” Chanchew said. For Chanchew, what was once a nice neighborhood now seems less so with open-air drug activities and thefts around the area. “I still feel nervous because I can see so much of it going on,” Chanchew said. “I have to deal with these people and it is happening in the middle of the day. I … [Read more...] about Suspect arrested in connection to flower shop break-in
AUBURN — John Morrison opened Port City Relief in a former gun shop in April, two doors down from the Rollodrome. The interior is sleek black and gray, with a tall cafe table in one corner and two long cases filled with glass containers neatly labeled with offbeat names such as Oil Spill and Mimosa #14. Morrison and his son own one of just two shops licensed to sell medical marijuana in Auburn. They plan to open a second one in Lewiston, above Pedro O’Hara’s on Main Street, in time for the holidays — and in time for the rush. “When we opened up and started growing, I was nervous as a cat, it hadn’t really sunk in that this is legit,” Morrison said. “When recreational (marijuana) comes, (sales) will be 50-fold more, at least.” People already come in to Port City every day looking to buy. The state’s medical marijuana rules are getting an overhaul next month amid a sudden flood of retail medical marijuana shops opening. … [Read more...] about Marijuana storefronts: Coming to a corner near you?

Living Give me a Decaf Mocca Frappuccino – and hold the fish By ALAN BEHR Tribune News Service LinkedIn Google+ Pinterest Reddit Print Order Reprint of this Story June 26, 2018 01:00 AM A prudent first consideration when trying to understand Seattle is that it is not Athens, Rome or, for that matter, Stratford-upon-Avon. The seed of Western Civilization was planted in classical Athens, blew westward on a storm toward ancient Rome, was miraculously grafted onto stronger roots during the Renaissance in Florence and Siena and, one thing following another, kept going until it hit Seattle, where it stopped, the broad Pacific being too great a barrier for its further transit. Instead, Asian culture came east, and although Seattle remains heavily European in population and influence, it doesn't completely fit a classical definition of what is Western; in fact, it doesn't quite fit any classical definition. It is, in a word, "whatever," in the very … [Read more...] about Give me a Decaf Mocca Frappuccino – and hold the fish
