Morristown service for 'Muzz' Lindsley, revered coach and florist, June 8Tuesday, June 19, 2018
Muzz as a player and later as a coach.“He wasn’t tall, but he was a good ball handler with a dependable outside shot,” MacKenzie recalled.In a charity game against the Allentown Jets, who were defending champs of the Eastern League with several NBA-bound players on their roster, “Muzzy was able to move the ball and get off his shot against those pro players,” MacKenzie said.Later, Lindsley coached basketball at Morristown and Bayley-Ellard high schools. “His teams were well-drilled and always in top shape. He lived and loved the game,” the judge said. The Daily Record named him Coach of the Year in 1967.“There are so many good memories with Muzz,” said friend Milton Goldband. “The kids he helped, his passion for the game, his love of family, his sense of humor and respect for all people. For many years we sat together on the bench at Bayley enjoying each other’s plotting how to squeeze out one more win. Never a cross word or an I-told-you-so.”Lindsley’s family can trace its New Jersey presence to 1667, when the first Lindsley arrived in Newark from Connecticut.Tara Schaberg, assistant archivist at the Morristown & Township Library, found documentation of Muzz Lindsley’s great-grandfather, who was killed in the Civil War.Records show the first post of the Grand Army in Morristown was renamed the “Ira J. Lindsley Post. No. 18” in honor of Captain Lindsley, who fell in the battle of Chancellorsville, on May 3, 1863.Muzz Lindsey is survived by his wife of 55 years, Beverly (Morrison), and his children Leann, Marianna D’Elia (Michael) and Kristen Galdieri (Frank). He also is survived by grandchildren Nicholas, Megan, Jack, Paige, Andrew and Tatum; his brother Herb Lindsley and his wife Eileen, and nephew Herb Jr.; and many great nieces and nephews. https://morristowngreen.com/2018/06/08/morristown-service-for-muzz-lindsley-revered-coach-and-florist-june-8/comment-page-1/
R15 for a delivery: The battle of 3 desperate men who deliver your foodTuesday, June 19, 2018
I get from Uber is an app," he said.He wishes Uber would help him with insurance in case of an accident. He says many drivers have been involved in accidents.Uber spokesperson Samantha Allenberg said: "Uber Eats offers people, who want access to flexible opportunities, the opportunity to make some extra money delivering great local food." She did not respond to questions about pay rates or insurance but suggested that GroundUp contact other delivery companies.'We are on our own'Explaining the need for insurance, a Burundian man said he had been involved in an accident in 2014 and still had trouble with his leg. He said OrderIn refused to help at the time."It would be better if the company would contribute towards insurance. We are on our own.""Since 2014, when I started doing this work, I still get R20 for a delivery. In our last negotiations the company said, if we are not happy with their offer, we can leave," he said.OrderIn did not respond to questions sent by GroundUp, despite emails and several telephone calls.A Rwandan delivery man said the rainy weather makes his job more dangerous, with the increasing risk of being involved in accidents. "We have mates seriously injured, some even dying. But we do not have an option."The man who is contracted to MrD Food, said that, after deducting operating costs such as fuel, data and motorbike maintenance, he battled to clear R800 a week.'A willing buyer/willing seller service'Mark Musto, national franchise operations manager for Takealot.com, which owns MrD Food, said delivery services were provided by independent contractors, who were offered a "willing buyer/willing seller" service rate before signing a contract.He said contractors were paid between R15 and R27 per delivery, "depending on a number of factors"."Some independent contractors are supplied with a vehicle and receive a lower delivery rate. Some supply their own vehicles and deliver services further away, so they receive a higher rate.""Independent contractors work in a small prescribed radius, it's unlikely that the independent contractors are not making profit."He said the company's research suggested the drivers travelled on average 6km or less from collection to delivery. A Honda PCX150 motorbike, for example, could make 45 deliveries on a single tank of fuel - "a clear indication that it is a profitable partnership", Musto said."In addition, 100% of all tips are also paid to independent contractors."Musto said: "We increase the rate year... https://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/r15-for-a-delivery-the-battle-of-3-desperate-men-who-deliver-your-food-20180619

CSU campus in Fort Collins. One part research facility and one part tourist attraction, the gardens test how well new plants can stand up to Colorado’s challenging growing conditions.Plant breeding companies pay to submit their top entries to the trials each year. Over the summer, CSU Extension master gardeners in Larimer County help manage nearly 3-acres of annual flowers from planting until evaluation day in August. A smaller follow up visit confirms judging in September.About 150 discerning judges rate each plant’s performance. Judges include the trial garden advisory committee, green industry professionals, university employees, and master gardeners. Annuals are rated on plant habit, quality of the foliage, disease resistance, flower power (number of flowers per plant), flower color, flower size and uniformity, vigorous growth, and overall appeal.Because of the rigorous testing and evaluation process, home gardeners can be assured the ‘Best of ‘ winners will be beautiful and tough performers in their gardens, too. With more than 20 classes of plants included in the trial garden — from argryranthemum to vinca — there’s a likely bunch of winners for every spot in the landscape.In addition to the individual classes of winners, the judges select three special awards: Best of Show, Best Novelty Plant and Best New Variety.Best of S... https://www.denverpost.com/2018/06/01/colorado-state-university-annual-flower-trial-winners/
