Former White House Florist: State Visit Revealed First Lady Melania Trump's 'Formidable' Cultural Diplomacy - Breitbart NewsTuesday, May 01, 2018
Even die-hard critics seemed to pause for a moment to admire the multi-faceted diplomatic itinerary that went off without a hitch.”Dowling noted that when the Macrons arrived at Joint Base Andrews, they were given a bouquet of purple irises — the national flower of France.“At the intimate state dinner, meticulously planned and executed by the first lady herself without a coterie of consultants and planners, guests reveled in the elegant setting of a candle-lit State Dining Room,” Dowling wrote. “In the manner of Jacqueline Kennedy, the first lady planned and executed an impressive series of symbolic activities that demonstrated the power of style and cultural diplomacy when carried out on the high profile White House stage.”“There is inherent meaning in the symbolism surrounding the White House and the ability to bring citizens together around shared values and ideals,” Dowling wrote. “While individual details of a state visit may seem innocuous or even frivolous, including the selection of flowers, linens, china, and menu for the dinner, they actually have much greater significance.”“The details roll up into a larger narrative that fosters a dialogue between leaders of nations and their citizens, highlighting common bonds and a shared cultural heritage,” Dowling wrote. “A White House state dinner is perhaps one D.C. ritual that allows us to dial back political vitriol and celebrate time-honored traditions in a non-partisan way.”Dowling noted that the state dinner also reflects how the first lady — not bringing the usual political pedigree to the White House — is making her mark in her role as the nation’s highest-ranking hostess.“Even before the state dinner, there were clues that it would be a departure from previous years,” Dowling wrote. “Pared down and pared back, the first lady wanted the focus to be on the diplomatic tasks at hand.”“A smaller guest list, a streamlined menu and skillful deployment of the White House collection (rather than the use of rental tables and china), all placed emphasis squarely on the honored guests and eased the burden on taxpayers, too,” Dowling wrote. “Even the decision to move the press preview of the décor and table settings to the night before the dinner had implications for how e... http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/28/former-white-house-florist-statevisit-revealed-first-lady-melania-trump-formidable-cultural-diplomacy/

Instagram."The Instagram account currently has over 32,000 followers, and Julio even did the flowers for Erin Andrews wedding, but it's not just his floral arrangements that are getting noticed. Julio's flower hats have taken a life of their own. " A friend of mine had traveled to a different country and she brought me this hat. And I wore to all of my events and then when it came time to get a name that was the first thing I thought of."Julio now sells the flower hats and once they go on sale you better get one quick."They sold out in 20 minutes. I shipped them to Brazil, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany and one in Japan and then almost every single state in America got a hat.

A promising life, cut shortTuesday, October 16, 2018
One person who knows, Asbill herself, is dead. She was 19 years old.A second person who knows, Michael Vernon Beaty, of Clinton, is suspected in the homicide. He faces a murder charge which, in South Carolina, could be a capital crime.A third person who knows, William Jarrell Alexander, of Cross Hill, is the man authorities say tried to prevent Beaty from being arrested.The men were arraigned on their charges - murder for Beaty, accessory after the fact of murder for Alexander - Tuesday in Clinton Municipal Court.Municipal Judge Bob Link denied bond for both men; he said the charges against them “are not bondable offenses” in municipal court. Beaty and Alexander are scheduled to appear in Laurens County Circuit Court Aug. 9.Beaty has retained a private attorney, and Alexander at this time is represented by a public defender. No testimony was allowed at Tuesday morning’s hearing. Relatives of the victim Asbill and both suspects watched the proceedings. What Asbill, Beaty and Alexander did the night of June 29 remains the subject of intense scrutiny by law enforcement.“They rode around (for an hour),” said Robin Morse, director Clinton Department of Public Safety, who on Monday afternoon announced Beaty’s and Alexander’s arrests.“They stopped. They rode around, they stopped.”Finally, after leaving the party, they stopped at 502 Calvert Avenue in the city.There, arrest warrants allege, Asbill was strangled to death. An autopsy Sunday in Newberry determined her cause of death to be “asphyxiation due to strangulation.”Morse said authorities believe Beaty strangled Asbill.That may have been the culminating act in an hour’s time period when authorities have yet to account for all the actions of the three.Asbill had “road... http://www.clintonchronicle.com/breaking-news/promising-life-cut-short

Ask LaFleur: How is the money for my South Carolina wildflower license plate spent?Tuesday, July 17, 2018
The focus is broader now, but funds raised by the plates still go exclusively toward beautification projects through the Highway Beautification Fund, according to the South Carolina Department of Transportation website. A state law that dates back to 1990 mandates that the fund may only be used for landscaping, wildflower planting, scenic easements or other highway enhancement projects. Eligible projects include wildflower planting, gateway projects, landscaping and bike or pedestrian paths, according to DOT. Ask LaFleur: When will Greenville glass recycling begin? Rubbing alcohol challenge: What made the South Carolina case more dangerous? Brian Keys, deputy secretary for finance and administration for DOT, said the department is currently working to finalize an agreement with the South Carolina Department of Parks and Tourism specifically for beautification projects tied directly to welcome centers across South Carolina. The fee for the "Keep It Beautiful" plate is $54 for two years. It's available to all South Carolina residents. More than 12,000 of the tags have been purchased, according to DOT, and the tag is one of the state's most popular specialty plates. Do you have a question you want answered?
