Bigger than a quarter, Kiowa blackberries thrive in Georgia gardens. Tara is one of the biggest bronze muscadines. Things wouldn’t be quite so sweet for shoppers and home fruit growers today without the Georgia legislature’s farsighted action in the 1940s.For six decades now, Georgia has had muscadine and blueberry breeding programs. The results are thriving muscadine and blueberry industries and a great number of excellent cultivars for home gardeners.This year, farm gate sales of blueberries and muscadines topped $20 million. These small fruits provided much-needed income for struggling family farmers.Both muscadine and rabbiteye blueberries thrive in Georgia’s hot, humid climate. They can usually be grown with great success without pesticides in home gardens.Top Muscadine PicksMy top picks for large muscadine grapes to plant in 2001 and 2002 are Tara (bronze fruit), Cowart (black), Scarlett (red), Summit (pinkish bronze) and Supreme (black).These should work everywhere in Georgia except in the high mountains. In the high mountains, American bunch grapes, such as Niagara or Fredonia, are a better choice in the home garden. (See your county Extension Service agent for a publication on this.)Rabbiteye blueberries thrive all over the state. Plant early-, mid- and late-season cultivars for extended ripening.Top picks for early season are Austin, Premier and Climax. Austin is new and might be hard to find this year. The best midseason choice is Brightwell. Late-season picks are Tifblue, Powderblue and Centurion. If you’re in a frosty spot, go with Brightwell, Tifblue, Powderblue and Centurion. Photo: CAES File Photo Best BlackberriesBesides these fruits, a breeding program for blackberries in Arkansas is producing cultivars we can use with great success in Georgia.The ones that are doing best in Georgia are Kiowa and Chickasaw (very big fruit on thorny bushes) and Arapaho (medium fruit on thornless bushes). Kiowa and Chickasaw do well statewide, while Arapaho does better in north Georgia than in south Georgia.Fall-planted strawberries do well in Georgia, too, but this is a project for next September. In the fall, plug plants are available from several Georgia producers. (See your county agent for a source and a publication on the subject.)The Chandler and Camarosa cultivars from California are the best I’ve seen for this project. Georgia now has about 45 pick-your-own strawberry producers, and the strawberry harvest is here. Your county agent can give you a list of farms near you. Photo: SRSFC
Ghana’s Black Meteors’ hopes of making it to next year’s Olympics Games in Tokyo were dealt a huge blow on Monday night.The Meteors, despite leading on two separate occasions against Egypt, succumbed to a 3-2 loss to the hosts.Yaw Yeboah had put the Meteors ahead inside six minutes before Egypt pegged them back 11 minutes later, with Mostafa Mohamed heading home.Samuel Obeng restored Ghana’s lead right at the start of the second half after capitalising on a defensive error.Egypt then laid siege to Ghana’s goal, desperate for an equaliser, and even hitting the crossbar at one point.Ramadan Sobhi eventually found the leveller, poking home after Meteors keeper Baah failed to hold on to a shot.Sobhi set up Egypt’s winner two minutes from time as his corner was headed home by Ahmed Rayan.The result leaves the Meteors with one point from two games ahead of their final group game against Mali, who have lost both of their games so far.Ghana will need to beat Mali and hope for a favourable result in Egypt’s encounter with Cameroon in order to stand a chance of making it to the semis.Watch highlights of the match below
And does Rivers have the appetite to remain on the sidelines to coach the Clippers through some version of a rebuild?The suggestion that he may look to earn his paycheck elsewhere is only the beginning of the high stakes the Clippers will face this summer.Staying readyRivers caught some off guard earlier last week when he said Paul Pierce might be able to contribute down the stretch for the Clippers.Before Thursday night in Denver, Pierce had not played since Feb. 5 in Boston.“My job is just to be ready,” said Pierce, who plans to retire after this season. “I ain’t played too many games this year, so my job is just to stay ready.”In his 19th NBA season, Piere said his lack of court time this season has not affected his approach.“I’m thinking I’m going to play every game,” he said. “I prepare like I’m going to play every game. That’s how I prepare. I come here, I work, I prepare mentally, to get ready to play.”Rivers said Thursday that Pierce could help out as a smaller power forward in certain lineups.“He’s so smart,” Pierce said. “When we’re playing with the smaller four I think Paul can help us.”Pierce started the second and fourth quarters for the Clippers against Cleveland, finishing with 7 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 14 minutes. Mid-way through the fourth he scored on a one-handed dunk from the baseline. Rivers, whose primary residence is in the Orlando area, coached the Magic from 1999-2003.When Rivers arrived from Boston in 2013, he said, he established the goal of establishing a sense of “pride of place” with L.A.’s less popular NBA team.“When I took this job that was my goal,” he said. “I haven’t accomplished that yet. That’s my goal that drives me to make this a destination that you want to come to and have pride in. I think we’ve improved it greatly but it’s still not where… I haven’t reached my goal at all, and I’m fully aware of that.“I am a goal seeker, that’s who my life has been and that’s my goal right now. That’s my only goal.”The ramifications of another first round have the potential to be dramatic. Will Paul and Griffin want to reunite for yet another run when each of the first six together have been fraught with disappointment? Can they afford to pay Redick market value with the salary cap at an all-time high? LOS ANGELES >> Doc Rivers forcefully refuted a report that he is considering an offseason exit from the Clippers that would lead him back to the Orlando Magic, the team with which he got his start in coaching.“I have a past with the Magic,” Rivers said Saturday. “I have no future. My future’s here.”Rivers is in the third year of a five-year contract to serve as both the Clippers head coach and president basketball operations. However, with Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and J.J. Redick all set to hit free agency, there is a league-wide expectation that the Clippers roster could undergo a significant shakeup if the Clippers fail to make a deep run in the playoffs.According to a report from ESPN.com on Saturday, that could include Rivers. Depending on how the rest of the season plays out, the report suggests that owner Steve Ballmer could explore changes throughout the organization. If Rivers were seeking an exit strategy, the option that has coursed through the NBA’s grapevine would be a return to Orlando, where General Manager Rob Hennigan is on the hot seat.

ARCADIA, Calif. (July 8, 2016)–In a breathtaking performance, heavily favored Masochistic took Friday’s $65,000 Santa Anita allowance feature by 6 ¼ lengths under Mike Smith while covering 6 ½ furlongs geared down in 1:13.74.Breaking from post position four in a field of five older horses, Masochistic, who is conditioned by Ron Ellis and had been idle since well beaten in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint on Oct. 31 at Keeneland, fairly glided through fractions of 21.53, 43.61 and 1:07.42.“That’s just not normal,” said Smith as he acknowledged the ease with which the 6-year-old California-bred gelding by Sought After had just completed his assignment. “Ron’s done a tremendous job bringing him back. From the first time I got on him after the Breeders’ Cup until today…He was taking baby steps in his training and after his last work, Ron said ‘I’m running him.’ And that was the right move, as you saw.”A winner of the Grade I, seven furlong Triple Bend Stakes four starts back here roughly a year ago, Masochistic was off at 3-5 and paid $3.40, $2.80 and $2.10.Owned by Will Shamlian’s Los Pollos Hermanos Racing and Samantha Siegel’s Jay Em Ess Stable, Masochistic collected his seventh win from 12 starts and with the winner’s share of $50,700 (which includes a California-Bred Owner Fund bonus of $11,700), he increased his career earnings to $652,550.“Visually, I would have never thought he was going that fast,” said Ellis, who succeeded A.C. Avila as the horse’s trainer five starts back, in the spring of 2015. “That was pretty amazing, really…We’ll skip the Bing Crosby (Grade I, six furlongs on July 31) and play it by ear.”(Ellis indicated the Grade II, seven furlong Pat O’Brien Stakes at Del Mar on Aug. 27 was a more likely destination).Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Heir of Storm finished second by 4 ½ lengths at 7-1 and paid $3.60 and $2.80.Indexical, ridden by Mario Gutierrez, was off at 10-1 and paid $2.80 to show.First post time for a nine-race card on Saturday at Santa Anita is at 1:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 11:30 a.m.
