Five new grants, one CVSG, but no Arlene's FlowersTuesday, July 03, 2018
National Park Service told him that it was a crime to operate his hovercraft (which he was using to hunt moose) on the Nation River, which is within the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. The rangers cited a Park Service rule that prohibits the use of hovercraft on public lands; Sturgeon countered that the waterway was owned by the state, and he went to court to challenge the enforcement of the rule on the river. The lower courts ruled for the state, but in 2016 the Supreme Court threw out those rulings, holding that the lower courts had misconstrued the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, a federal law governing the National Park Service’s authority over lands in Alaska. The justices did not, however, say how the law should be interpreted, instead returning the case to the lower courts.Sturgeon is now back at the Supreme Court, asking the justices to decide the same question that they declined to settle two years ago: whether the ANILCA bars the National Park Service from regulating other land – owned by the state, native corporations or private owners – within the boundaries of Alaska national parks. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that the Nation River is actually “public land” because the federal government has a water right in it – a conclusion that Sturgeon describes as a “crushing blow to Alaska’s sovereignty” that gives the Nationa... http://www.scotusblog.com/2018/06/five-new-grants-one-cvsg-but-no-arlenes-flowers/
Dr. Dirt: Start planting potatoes in early April - Indianapolis StarFriday, March 18, 2016
Cooperative Extension Office (every county has an office) and get a bulletin on growing potatoes. This will take the guesswork out of the task and greatly increase the yields and your satisfaction. Yukon Gold is a popular yellow-fleshed variety. Other popular varieties are Norland with red skin and Kennebec, which has brown skin and is easy to peel. The Idaho russet varieties are popular with consumers, but they are more difficult to grow here because of their need for a constant soil moisture supply. Plant certified seed potatoes rather than those from a grocery store, which have often been treated with a sprout retardant. Potatoes are a cool season crop, so planting is done starting in early April. Growing potatoes is not as popular as many other vegetables due to large space requirements, long maturity dates and proper storage facilities. The ideal storage temperature is around 40 degrees. At higher temperatures the potatoes will sprout.Dear Dr. Dirt: Although it has been a mild winter, my lenten roses look terrible. The foliage is scorched. What kind of TLC will save them? — Helen, IndianapolisDear Reader: This dependable evergreen perennial, Helleborus orientalis, is a late winter bloomer that does exceptionally well in shady areas. Snow provides some essential winter protection from the wind. And, by early March when the plants normally start blooming, there had only been about 12 inches of snow. Prune away the ratty foliage to make room for new growth. Fertilize with a general purpose product like 12-12-12. The flowers are long lasting and dead heading will reduce heavy re... http://www.indystar.com/story/life/home-garden/2016/03/10/dr-dirt-start-planting-potatoes-early-april/81610616/

Have You Spotted the Giant Floral Displays Popping Up Around the City? - Pittsburgh MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
A mother of three boys who previously worked for Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana, Dickson says she came up with the idea for the installations after seeing florist Lewis Miller Design’s “Flower Flash” project in New York City. In February, she installed her first display, wrapping garlands of flowers around the columns of Shadyside’s Family House — which provides a “home away from home” for patients and their families seeking medical treatment in Pittsburgh. “To all of the healthcare workers and all of the patients and their families, this one’s for you!” Dickson wrote on Instagram of the project. Later that month, she spruced up her hometown area, coating a light pole and corner on Brilliant Avenue in Aspinwall with flowers. In early March, she struck again, creating an enormous bouquet atop a recycling bin on Penn Avenue and 21st Street in the Strip District. Beside the display, she used sidewalk chalk to quote French artist Henri Matisse’s famous line, “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” Dickson told the Post-Gazette the recycling can project was particularly inspired because the already-cut flowers — from supplier BW Wholesale Florist in the Strip District — would have been thrown away had she not repurposed them. If you missed any of the installations, your chances of catching one have not wilted. The pop-up displays will continue to sprout up across the city, possibly through April, Dickson says — and suggestions as to where are welcome.
