The combined wholesale value of domestically produced cut flowers in 2010 for all flower-producing operations with $100,000 or more in sales. Among states, California was the leading producer, alone accounting for more than three-quarters of this amount ($286 million). (FILE - In this Feb. 16, 1984, file photo, American Alpine skier Bill Johnson, of Van Nuys, Calif., raises his arms into the air to celebrate on the podium after winning the gold medal in the men's downhill skiing race at the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina. A series of strokes over the past few years have all but immobilized Johnson, the skier who once lived life on the edge. His brash confidence, movie-star charisma and rebellious attitude made him a fan favorite at the 1984 Olympics, when he became the first American to capture the downhill crown.
