He’s even brought his younger brother, Ryan, to the camp and hopes he can stay on a similar path.“I try to look out for him and be helpful,” said Poe.MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Shawnee grads helping raise money for cancer research with bike ride Poe came to the program around the time Hill started and she’s seen his growth as well as her own.“It’s amazing to see how far he’s come. We’ve tried to bring some consistency, support and mentoring,” she said.Another ceramic project involved creating something the campers would like to see in Springfield. These ranged from a Ferris wheel and palm tree to an army of cats and a sign reading Chick-fil-A, a plea for the fast-food chain to open here.This was Luketic’s first time working with a group like this and he’s experienced a lot of what the campers have from an adult perspective.“I came in curious, wondering how we could accomplish this. The kids dove in and continued to,” he said.Luketic added he’d be happy to continue working with Project Jericho in the future. Mariah Kaminsky from Durango, Colo. was returning here after supervising Project Jericho’s creation of the “Catching Light” mural two years ago.Project Jericho Success Coordinator Kristi Limes said during the shadow painting project the campers learned to do layers and to their credit never lost interest in the project and kept attention to detail, a tribute to the artists and the kids’ dedication.Project Jericho is a program of Clark State Community College supported through funding from Clark County Department of Job and Family Services, the Ohio Arts Council, The Turner Foundation, Clark County Juvenile Court and private contributions.For more information, go to www.project-jericho.comThank you for reading the Springfield News-Sun and for supporting local journalism.

Blooming business - Hays Daily NewsSunday, February 11, 2018
I got started,” Sherfick said.While Sherfick is mostly self-taught, she has taken various classes and recently had the opportunity to assist Diana Ryan, owner of Floral Accents located in Shawnee and the winner of the Knot’s 2017 Florist Pic of the Year award. Sherfick spent two days with Ryan preparing flowers for four weddings.“It was the most amazing experience in my life,” Sherfick said. “She taught me so much and was just awesome.”Sherfick offers silk and fresh flowers. The fresh flowers are supplied by Valley Floral in Wichita. Valley Floral is unique in that its entire warehouse is kept between 34 and 38 degrees and also delivers the flowers in a refrigerated truck, which ensures the flowers last longer.A unique option Sherfick also offers is preserved roses, which have become quite popular among brides. The roses are real, but have been through a chemical process that takes the color out of the flower and then the color is added back in. The preserved roses will last up to 10 years when kept out of direct sunlight.“When they are attached to the stems and in an arrangement, you can’t tell,” Sherfick said of the preserved roses. “They can make any color. The options are endless as to what they can do for you.”Sherfick will work with all kinds of budgets and provides customers with up to four quotes for silk, fresh, “real feel” flowers and a combination of the different types. With silk flowers, her goal is to deliver the finished products two to four weeks before the wedding to allow time to make adjustments the bride might want.When it comes to customer service, Sherfick is dedicated to going the extra mile — literally. She has traveled to meet with people all across Kansas and even Nebraska for consultations.“I tell them, ‘I’ll come to you. You have enough to deal with,’ and they love that and I don’t mind it at all,” Sherfick said.Rebekah Lee, Hays, found out the lengths Sherfick will go to for her clients. Lee originally had planned to put together the flowers for her October wedding herself, but decided to contact Sherfick three weeks before the wedding for last-minute help.“I found her through ... http://www.hdnews.net/news/20180113/blooming-business
