Life in prison for Ridgefield florist in partner's murder - Rutherford Daily VoiceTuesday, March 19, 2019
Battinelli during the trial as a “cold, calculating” hunter who killed Murphy, his partner of 20 years, with a .22-caliber rifle in their G&M Wholesale Flowers shop on Midland Avenue in January 2010. Murphy was on the verge of discovering that Battinelli had stolen $81,883 from him — in part, by taking payments in cash — when he was killed, she said. Neary insisted authorities rushed to judgment and got the wrong man — and pointed instead to one of their drivers. A delivery man for the business found Murphy’s body on Jan. 6, 2010 and “literally ran across Midland Avenue to Garfield Police headquarters across the street,” Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said at the time. Neary told the jurors that the driver had immigration issues and was in hot water with Murphy for a series of flat tires. Murphy had questioned him about the flats that morning before he left to take a delivery to Glen Rock, he noted. Battinelli not only had “motive, means and opportunity” — he was the only person left in the building with Murphy when the driver and another left that morning, Grootenboer countered. After the shooting, she said, Battinelli drove across town to the City Hall on a “non-emergency errand” to buy parking passes, she said. “By his own admission, Thomas Battinelli was the last person to see Michael Murphy,” the prosecutor said. “It didn’t take long for Battinelli, an experienced hunter, to kill his unsuspecting friend.” A Garfield police dispatcher later testified that Battinelli was still at the City Hall when they called him to report that Murphy had been found dead. The murder weapon was found in the walk-in refrigerator at G&M under a pile of decorative branches, Grootenboer said. Battinelli bought the Browning .22 lever-action rifle at Ramsey Outdoor, she told jurors. When a Garfield police sergeant found it, she said, “the trigger was in the locked back position indicating it had been fired. It had one spent .22 caliber shell casing inside, and one .22 caliber bullet. “The bullet had a “B” stamp on the bottom of it. On January 6, 2010 when investigators searched Thomas Battinelli’s house, they found the same ammunition there.” Subsequent testing turned up Battinelli’s right, middle fingerprint on the gun. During his closing arguments, Neary ( left ) told jurors: “The fact it is Tom Battinelli’s gun and fingerprints isn’t proof.” STORY / PHOTOS: Mary K.

Daisy Jane's is a Florist on Wheels - Cincinnati CityBeatTuesday, July 23, 2019
I always knew, at some point in my life, I wanted to start a business,” Moore says. “I even bought a door — a mint green door.” Bought from a Habitat for Humanity Restore in Traverse City, Michigan — where she previously worked as a reporter for WPBN-TV in 2012 and ‘13 — the door has traveled with Moore to every city she has called home and served as a physical reminder to Moore of her ultimate entrepreneurial goal. Currently, the door resides in her basement, but she would love to use it in a physical storefront one day. For her, it serves as a symbol of the independence, hard work and the reward found as a small business owner. “I think what I love so much about small businesses is just the impact they have on the community,” she says. “When you buy from small businesses, you’re supporting your neighbor.”Moore says she loves being a part of a community of entrepreneurs who have carved out their own path. “Anybody who steps out and does that is taking a huge risk, but I think that so many can be inspired by someone knowing that this may not work, but it’s OK,” she says. “And if it inspires someone else to chase a dream that they have, then that’s all worth it."For more information on Daisy Jane’s Flower Truck and to find upcoming locations, visit daisyjanesflowertruck.com. https://www.citybeat.com/arts-culture/culture/article/21078504/daisy-janes-is-a-florist-on-wheels
Flint florist celebrates centennial with free flowers on first day of spring - MLive.comTuesday, July 23, 2019
Garland Street and 5th Avenue.John David began working at Vogt’s in the mid-1950s after following his college sweetheart to Flint. John David was studying horticulture at Michigan State University and it was required he find an internship, Krueger said.“So he took his internship at a flower shop close to where she was in Flushing,” Krueger said. “He never went back to school, like most people did and still do, and here we are today.”Gordon Anthony bought the shop from Vogt in the mid-1950s and John David operated the flower shop for him. It wouldn’t be long before John David saved enough money to buy the shop from Anthony in the late 1960s.Krueger remembers growing up around the flower shop as a kid. When his family’s company hosted parities and events, he would stay up until 1 or 2 a.m. helping to clean up.“I remember sleeping in the back of the vans because they couldn’t keep you at home,” Krueger said.Krueger credits his consistency and persistence to his family’s long-standing business.“Consistency is ... always (offering) a high quality product at a very reasonable, value-driven price,” Krueger said. “Persistence is you have to keep it going month after month, year after year. That’s the hard part. When it gets old and tiring you have to make sure you’re still passionate about what you’re doing.”It’s also key to keep up with industry trends, Krueger said.“You can’t be too comfortable with what you sell,” Krueger said. “Are you selling what your customers want or are you selling what you’re comfortable with? You have to change with that. Keep yourself educated within your industry by going to shows and markets.”If he had to choose, Krueger said his favorite flower would be roses because how beautifully they bloom.“I just think a rose is classic and there are certain roses when they open you just think that’s about as pretty as a flower can get,” Krueger said. “I’m not only proud of the flower shop, but I’m proud of how far the community has come in the last 15 to 20 years.”... https://www.mlive.com/news/flint/2019/03/flint-florist-celebrates-centennial-with-free-flowers-on-first-day-of-spring.html
