I hope whoever helped themselves to my flowers this weekend enjoyed them. It’s amazing. You took all my geraniums, hanging baskets and flats. I can’t imagine if it was kids why their parents weren’t concerned where the flowers came from.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t down there much this year. I tried to keep my expenses down so I didn’t hire anyone. My mornings and afternoons consisted of going to get flowers either to stock up or for orders. Then I left early some nights to go to my grandchildren’s ball games. Whoever took them this weekend had to know I was busy with my grandson’s open house.

My customers that I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with for the last 15 years know if I’m not there they can take what they want and come back later to take care of their purchases. I would like to thank all those who have had the courtesy to do so. Only in a small town like Morenci can business be done this way.

I do have a mailing address if those who took the flowers would like to take care of the situation.

Thanks again to all my past and present customers.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
