Inside Linda Fargo's Epic Grey Gardens–Themed Birthday Party at Hayward House - Vogue.comWednesday, July 05, 2017
Linda Fargo’s Grey Gardens–themed birthday party held Friday night in New York City. Inspired by the Maysles brothers’ 1975 cult classic documentary, Hayward House was transformed into the Beales’ dilapidated East Hamptons compound. Cohosted by Marin Hopper and John Goldstone, the occasion called for decadent attire that followed suit. “In the spirit of Edie Beale, this is all DIY,” Fargo said of fashioning a black turtleneck into a turban and a mink fur coat around her waist like a ball skirt. “I think that’s what everyone remembers about Little Edie—how she took her old finery and recycled it. And brooches with everything.” Fargo made the look her own with custom mink earrings: “These are Ranjana Khan, and speaking of, here are Ranjana and Naeem Khan now,” she said just as the designer husband and wife walked through the door.Upon arrival, a pair of drag performers masquerading as Big Edie and Little Edie greeted guests. Little Edie took turns reading horoscopes, while Big Edie pointed out table assignments that had been given such names as Mother Darling and Cat Land. Past the replica of Big Edie’s rickety twin bed (where several lifelike kitt... http://www.vogue.com/article/linda-fargo-grey-gardens-themed-birthday-party-hayward-house
From flowers to housing: Family-owned Ah Sam property for sale in San Mateo - San Mateo Daily JournalTuesday, May 23, 2017
Developers of those two projects have cited the proximity to the Hillsdale Caltrain station and future grade separations as prime perks for the infill sites.
Further north, the Hayward Park Caltrain station has also spurred a flurry of redevelopment activity. Construction at Station Park Green is underway where 599 housing units will be located adjacent to the nearly complete Hines office complex along Concar Drive. Caltrain is also looking to redevelop a portion of its surface parking lot at the Hayward Park station into a mixed-use housing project as well.
Long gone are the days when neighbors were scattered and development sporadic as Ah Sam first got started in the 1930s. Now, traffic, parking and density are often cited as concerns by neighbors living nearby when housing is proposed.
But as one of the few remaining infill sites that’s completely underutilized, Paris noted he can’t imagine the city approving something other than a TOD housing proposal for the Ah Sam property. Plus, there are extensive planning documents such as the Hillsdale Station Area Plan that call for these types of projects, he said.
“Transit-oriented residential development is a premier use for any of these types of site,” Paris said. “Residential, in our market, is the highest and best use.”

Sensible signings pay dividends for Chargers GM Tom Telesco - ESPN (blog)Tuesday, March 14, 2017
NFL)Total contract value: $149,635,588 (20th in NFL)Three-year W-L: 18-30Biggest hit: Brought in to play nickel defender and add depth at cornerback, former Green Bay Packers defensive back Casey Hayward signed a three-year, $15.3 million deal with the Chargers during the offseason last year. Hayward developed into the Chargers’ best defensive back in 2016 after injuries sidelined starting cornerbacks Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers. Hayward led the NFL in interceptions last season with seven, which earned him an invitation to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his five-year NFL career. With Verrett, who earned a Pro Bowl invitation in 2015, returning from an ACL knee surgery, the Chargers should have one of the best cornerback tandems in the league in 2017.Biggest miss: The Chargers inked veteran return man Jacoby Jones to a two-year, $5.5 million deal during the 2015 offseason. However, Jones struggled to stay healthy, and his lack of production on the field prompted the Chargers to release him eight games into the regular season. Jones averaged 21.4 yards per return in 2015, his lowest output since his rookie season in 2007 with the Houston Texans. And Jones had minus-4 punt return yards for the Chargers that season. The Chargers finished last in the NFL in 2015 with 84 punt return yards.Sneaky-good move: In search of stability at the center position since longtime anchor of the offensive line Nick Hardwick retired after the 2014 season, the Chargers finally found someone in vetera... http://www.espn.com/blog/san-diego-chargers/post/_/id/19724/focus-on-sensible-signings-pays-dividends-for-chargers-gm-tom-telesco
10 Things to Watch: What's the Plan for Verrett, Flowers and Hayward? - Chargers.comTuesday, July 26, 2016
July 30.What is the Cornerback Rotation?From the moment the Chargers inked former Packer Casey Hayward on March 13, many have wondered how the team plans to use their top three cornerbacks in unison.With Jason Verrett fresh off his first Pro Bowl appearance and former Pro Bowler Brandon Flowers back to full health, what tricks does Defensive Coordinator John Pagano have up his sleeve to deploy the trio at the same time?After seeing glimpses of those plans throughout the offseason program, training camp will offer the best look yet at how they will be used. According to Defensive Backs Coach Ron Milus, it may actually change from week to week come the regular season.“Casey and Brandon have played both outside and inside, but I want Jason to be able to go in there also at any time,” he said. “If we ever get into a game where our matchup is best for Jason to be inside, we can put him in there. If we can get Jason to that point where he is comfortable as the nickel defender, and the other two guys can go outside, I think that helps us. We want those three guys to be able to play al... http://www.chargers.com/news/2016/07/22/10-things-watch-whats-plan-verrett-flowers-and-hayward
Flowers Done Green - local flower shop keeps it unexpected - Volume OneMonday, December 17, 2018
Valley.“We don’t have to always go looking to the exotic to find something exceptionally beautiful. We’re celebrating what’s beautiful about Wisconsin.” – Sarah Lambert, Hive & Hollow“What I’m trying to do that’s different is having all of my flowers sourced as locally as possible,” Sarah said. In the spring and summer that means using supplies from her own greenhouse and garden and supporting local flower growers. When the winter months restrict local options to willow branches, pine cones, and evergreens, rather than ordering carnations and roses from Central American farms, she brings out the best of the seasonal options, accentuating them with plants from a Minnesota greenhouse.“We don’t have to always go looking to the exotic to find something exceptionally beautiful,” Sarah said. “We’re celebrating what’s beautiful about Wisconsin.”Sarah is also celebrating sustainability through her choices in product. She recalls a conversation with a fellow florist from ten years ago, when her coworker expressed concern the effect of floral industry chemicals on fertility. Before then, she hadn’t realized the proliferation of carcinogenic chemicals in pesticides and plastics associated with flower arranging. Sarah aims to carry as many organic, recycled, and locally grown products as possible to avoid negative environmental impact.Many of Sarah’s arrangements are presented in thrifted tins, glassware, and pots. On a recent Friday, she placed a bridal bouqu... https://volumeone.org/articles/2018/11/28/27005_flowers_done_green
Appletons Memorial Florists to diversify by growing hemp - Appleton Post CrescentMonday, December 17, 2018
There's literally no way you can get high off hemp," said Rob Richard, senior director of governmental relations at the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation in Madison. Nevertheless, hemp was outlawed as a crop in Wisconsin in 1970, squashing Wisconsin's hemp growing industry. "Wisconsin has a long history of growing hemp and was the top producer in the country from the 30s to the 50s," said Richard. The state Legislature passed a law in November 2017 to allow farmers to grow industrial hemp once again. While legal to grow, Richard said farmers are keeping an eye on a federal 2018 farm bill, yet to be signed, that gives them more incentive. "It clears up any misinterpretation or legal interpretation of what hemp is. It will be a crop. It removes it from the controlled substances act," Richard said. "It makes it eligible for crop insurance, so it takes away some of the risk." Richard sees hemp as a good option for Wisconsin farmers. "Our farmers are going through a rough time because commodity prices and milk prices are taking a beating. This is one avenue for farmers to hopefully make some profit on a crop." Besides Front Range, a number of other companies offering seeds and "clones" or tissue cuttings for propagating plants are starting in the state. "They're looking at Wisconsin because we're No. 2 in available organic acreage. Organics are where a lot of the profitability is," he said. Front Range leased one of Memorial's 15,400-square-foot greenhouses to grow tiny hemp plants — in much the same way greenhouses grow bedding or pack plants for home gardeners — that it will sell to Wisconsin farmers for planting in the fields. The operation will add eight full-time jobs. Memorial Florists' traditional floral and greenhouse operations will continue in the remainder of its 40,000-square-foot facility. That means home gardeners, decorators, brides, funerals and those looking for the business' better quality plants will ... https://www.postcrescent.com/story/news/2018/12/04/appletons-memorial-florists-greenhouses-signs-deal-grow-hemp/2201857002/
