Valentine secrets safe with florists - Otago Daily TimesThursday, February 18, 2016
Many recipients of flowers sent anonymously on Valentine's Day will be desperate to find out who sent them - but Dunedin florists are sworn to secrecy.Simply Flowers by Donna owner Donna Thornton said she once had a woman spend three hours in her shop trying to convince her to reveal who sent her flowers.• Feature: Unwrapping intimacy‘‘The thing is, you can't say anything. I've actually had to ring the customer who sent them and ask for permission. People get really angry and upset, but it's a confidentiality thing.‘‘I don't know why you would want to be anonymous when you're spending the money on flowers. Maybe they are scared of rejection. I don't know,'' Ms Thornton said.Flowers on Mornington owner-operator Samantha Chilcott said whenever someone placed an order and did not want to sign the card she would ask what they wanted her to do if the recipient asked her who they were from.‘‘They'll either say yes or no - if they say no, I won't tell them.

Floral-shop killer has behaved in prison. The parole board wasn't impressed. - SILive.comThursday, May 02, 2019
ISLAND, N.Y. – Despite a positive prison record that includes a clean disciplinary history for the past 15 years, a state parole board has again denied the release of the killer of a Mariners Harbor florist.In rejecting Steven Morales, 57, the panel cited the “tragic, senseless nature” of the nearly three-decades-old crime, along with a “strong statement of official opposition” to Morales’ request to be set free. “Discretionary release on parole shall not be granted merely as a reward for good conduct or efficient performance of duties while incarcerated,” the board wrote. “The panel was … concerned about inconsistencies in your statements about the specifics of the crime itself and your motivations before and afterward.”“With all factors weighed and considered, the panel concludes that your rehabilitation is still incomplete, and therefore, release at this time would be inappropriate as it would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime and undermine respect for the law,” said the board.Morales is serving 25 years to life for the Mother's Day 1991 murder of retired police detective Jasper (Jerry) DeMarco in the victim's Mariners Harbor floral shop.DeMarco, 46, was shot once in the c... https://www.silive.com/news/2019/04/floral-shop-killer-has-behaved-in-prison-the-parole-board-wasnt-impressed.html
