Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”
E. Stephen Hein Florist is located at 380 E. Second St. More info is available at www.estephenheinflorist.com.
The best independent florists delivering flowers in London | Interiors | House - Luxury LondonSunday, February 28, 2021
London, whose experimental arrangements are bringing colour and joy to the capital. From single stems grown and cut in Kent, to large bodacious bouquets made using rare and unique flowers, a handful of creative florists are shaking up the industry. Here’s our pick of the bunch.SAGE FlowersRomy St Clair and Iona Mathieson had no experience in floristry when they founded SAGE Flowers. Starting out at a pop-up market in a car park in Peckham, the duo threw away with the proverbial rule book and created experimental and unique bouquets inspired by more unusual flowers and foliage. In the three years since, the pair have created installations for the likes of Fenty, Gucci and Stine Goya, and built a sizeable following in the capital and beyond. A selection of seasonal bouquets are available to buy through the brand’s website, with each bunch beautifully wrapped and delivered from the Peckham store.From £30, sageflowers.co.ukRebel RebelFounded in 2000 by flower fans Mairead and Athena, Rebel Rebel’s flamboyant blooms have caught the eye of brands such as Aston Martin, Harrods and Dior, who have all enlisted the he... https://luxurylondon.co.uk/house/interiors/the-best-independent-florists-in-london

The COVID-19 death toll just kept mounting for this family - Los Angeles TimesSunday, February 28, 2021
AIDS treatment or COVID-19 prevention. Wafford at his home in Inglewood(Kent Nishimura/Los Angeles Times) Wyatt has seen up close how higher rates of diabetes and cardiovascular disease among low-income people and minorities put them at high risk for whatever ailment comes along. “All that’s changed is the disease” he said.They live in our most environmentally unhealthy and dangerous neighborhoods. They don’t always have access to good schools or to convenient, quality healthcare. They struggle with trauma and the stress of daily struggle, and healthy food is not always easy to get or affordable. “If we knew how to take better care of ourselves, we wouldn’t be at such risk,” said Wyatt. “This is a battle people themselves have to be engaged in. We don’t talk enough about healthcare. We talk about food, games, celebrities. But we don’t talk about health.”Wafford had been working of late at a South Los Angeles clinic where he leads sessions on sexual and cardiovascular health. Dr. Wilbert Jordan, who runs the clinic, told me he learns a lot about his patients and the economic and cultural reasons for high rates of disease when he visits them in their homes.“You might see eight people sleeping to a room. This is true of some blacks and some Latinos,” Jordan said, and if one person is sick, everyone else in the room may soon be.Jordan added that the spread of the virus might also have been fueled by faith, in a manner of speaking.“Drive down any street in South Los Angeles and you’ll pass four or five small storefront churches,” said Jordan, who suspects that, before social distancing began, congregants meeting in tight quarters may have been exposed. Doctors and nurses rush in to save a patient’s life in the ICU unit at Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Hospital.(Francine Orr/Los Angeles Times) On Friday morning, Dr. Elaine Batchlor got a text informing her of an increase in the number of COVID-19 patients on ventilators at Martin Luther King Community Hospital, where she is the chief executive. The total number of patients hospitalized at MLK with the virus has remained fairly stable, at around 30, Batchlor told me, but even without a pandemic, the hospital’s daily challenge is monumental./... https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-05-23/column-first-one-death-in-the-family-then-another-and-the-toll-kept-mounting-for-inglewood-couple
Texas Florist Who Admitted to Being in Pelosi’s Office Wants Case Moved from D.C. Because of ‘Cancel Culture’ - Law & CrimeWednesday, March 31, 2021
U.S. Capitol siege wants her case severed from a co-defendant she was charged with, and she also demands a change of venue, asserting she cannot get a fair trial in the liberal-heavy Washington, D.C. because of “cancel culture.” The defense for Texas florist Jenny Louise Cudd, who was on video happily admitting to being in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, asserted authorities were creating the “illusion” of a conspiracy between her and Eliel Rosa by linking their cases.“According to the Government’s Statement of Facts, the two were seen on security footage walking into the building, walking around, and walking out,” attorney Marina Medvin said in a filing Wednesday. “There is no evidence of communications or a plan between the two to enter the Capitol. Instead, the evidence is purported to be that they were at the same place, at the same time, followed a crowd into the open doors of the Capitol building, then walked out. They didn’t take anything, they didn’t break anything.”Cudd was among rioters raiding the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, after then-President Donald Trump continued to lie that he actually won the 2020 presidential election.
