Late with the flowers - The Telegraph (blog)Wednesday, April 11, 2018
Georgia’s colleges and universities.He also was instrumental in bringing the Georgia Music Hall of Fame to Macon. It’s sad that it’s now gone, but it wasn’t his fault it failed to attract enough support to sustain itself. He was an “idea” person with high ideals.When Miller left the governor’s office in 1999, he had an 85 percent approval rating, making him the most popular governor in the nation. Those are poll numbers we likely will never see again by an elected official.I’m late with the flowers, but I’m a better man for having had him touch my life in ways I wish he had known. http://www.macon.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/ed-grisamore/article208186804.html
Hither Green burglar death flowers 'an insult' - BBC NewsWednesday, April 11, 2018
A 33-year-old neighbour, who did not want to be named, told the BBC he felt "intimidated"."I think that it's really sad that someone's died and I think it's not their fault that he's died and it's up to them to grieve for him however they want to do it."It is quite stark and you can't help but feel it looks a bit confrontational."It's a massive, massive display right in front of the house. If the family want to lay flowers that's fine but it feels weird. "It feels a bit aggressive to be honest."At the scene: Hamish Mackay, BBC news onlineMany residents in Hither Green have interpreted the large tribute to Mr Vincent as an aggressive act.One neighbour said they saw a car circling the block while the tribute was being erected, which they believe was an attempt to intimidate locals. If intimidation was the aim, it appears to have worked. Most neighbours are reluctant to talk publicly for fear of being drawn into a dispute that may not be over. While those living on South Park Crescent have all been quick to offer condolences to Mr Vincent, they argue his is not the only life that has been ruined. Mr Osborn-Brooks and his family have not returned to their house since the burglary and their windows have now been boarded up for fear of reprisals.Another neighbour, Theresa Webb, described the tributes as "inappropriate" and of "poor taste".Speaking about Mr Osborn-Brooks, she added: "One minute he is in his house and the next his life is turned upside down. "Everyone around here sends their best wishes to him."Police had been called to Mr Osborn-Brooks's property at about 00:45 BST on 4 April over reports of a burglary when they found Mr Vincent collapsed in nearby Further Green Road.A witness said an accomplice dragged Mr Vincent toward a van before leaving him for dead.On Monday, the Met Police said 28-year-old Billy Jeeves was wanted in connection with the burglary.Mr Jeeves's white Vauxhall Astra van was found burnt out and destroyed in Star Lane in Orpington, Bromley, on Saturday evening.Detectives want to hear from anybody who may have seen the van - with the registration GU52 AXT - in the days and hours before and after the burglary.In January, Mr Jeeves and Mr Vincent were named and pictured by Kent Police in connection with an investigation into a distraction burglary on a man in his 70s. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-43710526

Out of flowers? Flour? Businesses contend with supply crises - Colorado Springs GazetteWednesday, April 11, 2018
We rely on big industrial plants that are closing, buy the right to their power distribution systems, and rip them down," says Vaughn, whose company is based in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He also gets obsolete equipment from decommissioned call centers and data centers.Widespread Electric sells about half a million breakers a year, with some costing as much as $25,000. The cost is worth it for a business that otherwise would have to retrofit its power systems.Supply shortages are an inherent part of the electrical business, Vaughn says."It's directed by the manufacturers themselves," he says. "They put out a product line and sell it with a planned obsolescence program behind it."_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .
