Farmers Making Planting Progress This Week

first_imgGood weather is allowing local farmers to get more crops in the ground this week. Data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows 20 percent of Indiana’s corn has been planted.The percentage has been growing each day this week, but rain in the forecast Thursday through Saturday could sideline planting efforts.According to Hoosier Ag Today, some Southern Indiana farmers say that they have completed corn planting, while farmers in other regions of the state are just beginning.Statewide progress remains ahead of schedule compared to last year but still behind the five year average of 34 percent.Planting progress in the Hoosier State is ahead of Ohio, at nine percent. The U.S. Department of Ag reports planting progress in Kentucky and Illinois is approximately 40 percent.last_img

Perfect ten for Annie

first_img The Willie Mullins-trained six-year-old has the Champion Hurdle over two miles, the World Hurdle over three miles and even the OLBG Mares’ race as potential options in March, and this was no more than a most impressive stroll. Ruby Walsh set out to make every yard of the running on his only mount of the day and the giant mare gradually ground her rivals into submission. Annie Power enhanced her Cheltenham Festival claims with an effortless win in the OLBG.com Doncaster Mares’ Hurdle on Town Moor. Press Association While she was sent off at the prohibitive price of 1-6 favourite to oblige, she did have a smart rival in the shape of John Quinn’s Cockney Sparrow, who had finished a three-length second in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle to My Tent Or Yours. However, she fell at the second-last. Donald McCain’s Doyly Carte was left in second but she was no match for Annie Power, who followed up wins at Ascot and Cheltenham this season in effortless style to take her career record to 10 out of 10, despite a minor blip at the last. Walsh, who afforded himself a good look round on the run to the last, said: “She was a bit keen early on today but she travelled well all the way. “You should never look because you know you’ve won and you get indecisive and that’s what happened. “She was very slick over her hurdles and she’s just a very good mare. She’s 10 from 10 and I’m glad to be riding her. “Good horses aren’t complicated, complicated ones don’t tend to be good ones. “If she’s fit, sound healthy and well, the race (at Cheltenham) will pick itself. Getting there would be the big thing in my eyes.” Owner Rich Ricci said: “I think she jumped brilliantly apart from the last one. I always get nervous when they go to the last and there must be a better way than trying to run down the hurdle and take it easy or jump it like you’ve got to win. There should be something in between! “It was a shame Cockney Sparrow fell, but I think we had the beating of her and there’s some collateral form there with My Tent Or Your. We were very good. “That’s three times travelling. I’d like to have run her at home, but it’s worked out very well. “I think next time it’s Cheltenham. I’m trying to be transparent (about a target). I’ve been with Willie since 2005 and it’s always the same. We didn’t decide to run Champagne Fever in the Supreme until after he had worked the Thursday before. That’s how it is. “We haven’t had a chat about it yet. I’m sure we will. I’m sensitive to the yard. He’s got a lot of horses to mind and he’s got to balance them all out. “It’s my first visit to Doncaster. It’s fantastic and we’ll be back.” Mullins was at Leopardstown, where he said: “I was surprised how soft the ground was at Doncaster, but that wasn’t any harm. “She’s getting used to travelling, and hopefully three trips across to England haven’t taken a lot out of her but we’ll see how she comes back. The forecast is so bad, I don’t know whether she’s going to get back until Monday or Tuesday, but we’ll see, she might be lucky and get out. “She’s a wonderfully filly and hopefully we can add one or two more wins after that.” Paddy Power left Annie Power unchanged at 7-2 for the World Hurdle and 7-1 for the Champion Hurdle. RaceBets make her 3-1 to win any race at the Festival, with spokesman Joseph Burke saying: “Annie Power was tremendous at Doncaster again, showing her versatility as well as her class. She is a genuine prospect for the Champion Hurdle, Mares’ Hurdle and the World Hurdle and while the former is surely the most likely option at this stage, plans still remain fluid, so we’ve tried to take some of the guesswork out of it for punters.” last_img read more

Bilic aware of European pitfalls

first_imgWest Ham manager Slaven Bilic says their Europa League adventure would be exciting but draining, were his side to progress through qualifying and reach the group stages. The Irons beat Maltese Cup winners Birkirkara 1-0 with a scrappy 90th-minute goal from defender James Tomkins at Upton Park on Thursday night. Should West Ham secure an aggregate victory after the second leg next week at the Ta’Qali National Stadium, then either Scottish Premiership side Inverness or FC Astra of Romania would await in round three. While a subsequent fixture would also have to be safely negotiated before the Hammers – who entered via the UEFA Fair Play League – could take their place alongside Liverpool and Tottenham in the main draw for the group stages, Bilic understands all too well the demands placed on the squad should they deliver. “Like everything in life, it has two sides,” said the former Croatia and Besiktas boss, who takes his side to Southend for a pre-season friendly on Saturday. “The Europa League is great for the club, you could see with the spectators, they are enjoying it, against people from Andorra (in round one) and Malta, they all love to come for a European night. “It is great for a team, it gains not confidence, but they are different types of games, so it is good for us and for me – but on the other hand, it drains you. “I did it a few times last season, when it was great for Besiktas, but it was also very difficult to play on Thursday in Liverpool, then on the Sunday you have an away game in Turkey. “It was the same for Tottenham to come to Istanbul, to play on a Thursday night following a three-and-a-half hour flight. They lost the game, then on Sunday they had to play at Swansea. “That is shocking, for clubs like Borussia Dortmund, they had six games in the group stages of the Champions League, and afterwards they lost nearly all of their (German) league games, and they were down (the table). “It has got a lot of positive things, but also a lot of negative things. Press Association “But if you ask me, ‘do I like to play in Europe?’ Yes, I like it, it is good for the guys, but still we have to do a lot to qualify (for the group stages).” Bilic is expected to rotate his squad again for their next two domestic friendlies, which include a trip to Colchester on Tuesday night before jetting off to Malta. The likes of Cheik Kouyate and Enner Valencia could feature as they build up match fitness, while forward Diafra Sakho is suspended in Europe following his sending off in the away leg of the second round tie against Lusitans. Summer signings Dimitri Payet and Angelo Ogbonna will also be looking to get some game time, with the new Premier League season set to start in three weeks. Tomkins, meanwhile, felt the work-out against Birkirkara was positive, despite a largely frustrating night for the 33,048 supporters after West Ham failed to turn some 74% possession into earlier goals. The defender said on West Ham TV: “For a lot of the boys it was their first 90 minutes, so you can’t be too harsh. “The gaffer is impressing on us how he wants to play – pass and move, and press and defend. “It is the whole rotating system that we need to get used to and it takes a bit of time.” last_img read more

Quiet Birthday for Messi as Argentina Thinks about Nigeria Â

first_imgThis particular birthday would have been a sad one for Messi. Nothing anybody would have said or done to bring him out of the melancholy that would have enveloped the five-time world best player if Iceland had defeated Nigeria in that game in Volgograd Arena last Friday. The defeat would have  ended the Albiceleste’s quest to qualify from the group to the Last 16 stage of Russia 2018. They would have become the biggest casualty of this edition to crash out at this stage. There would have been uproar in Buenos Aires and other major cities of the South American nation.  But Super Eagles did the Argies ‘favour’ dispatching the Nordic country 2-0 through Ahmed Musa’s brace. Moment’s after that victory, the Jorge Sampaoli wards and their country folks erupted in celebration almost the same way Nigerians were in jubilant mood.Messi’s obsession with winning the World Cup which is the only major silverware missing from his rich trophy chest was back on track. It was understandable for Messi and his colleagues to celebrate the lifeline handed out to them by the Super Eagles. After they were held to a one-all draw by Iceland in their opening game and lost 3-0 scandalously to Croatia, a win or draw for Iceland against Nigeria would have been an automatic exit for Argentina with Croatia leading the group on six points and Iceland having minimum four points. There would have been nothing to play for beyond pride for the Albiceleste. But with Nigeria on three points Messi knows Argentina’s fate is still in their hands as they head to the final game on Tuesday.“It means so much because for Argentina the World Cup is special – and for me too. I’ve always had the dream of watching me raise the World Cup. And then seeing the emotion that goes with it.“My hair stands on end just thinking about that moment. It would make millions of Argentines in the world happy. So we cannot give up on that dream now,” said Messi.He reiterated his earlier stand not to quit the Beautiful Game without lifting the most coveted prize in global football- the World Cup.“I have won all the most important tournaments but I am ambitious to the end. I would not like to retire from active football without being a world champion with my country,” stressed the Argentine talisman who was rendered ineffective by a packed Croatian midfield inspired by Luka Modric last Thursday.Although Argentina has been in turmoil after that defeat against Croatia, signals coming out of the team’s base camp indicate yesterday that things have returned to normal with the players all focused on the clash with the Super Eagles.Even the Argentine football federation (AFA) at the weekend issued a statement dismissing insinuations that Sampaoli was on his way out of the team.Before training yesterday, Sampaoli congratulated Messi on his birthday without further elaboration. Unless there is a change of plan, senior players in the team like Messi and Javier Mascherano are likely to decide the game plan against Eagles. The dressing room revolt against Sampaoli appears real. Sergio Aguero gave life to this speculation here when he openly dismissed the gaffer’s tactics that failed against Croatia.Whether Messi will truly have the chance to move on to lift the trophy at this edition before taking a bow depends on the outcome of the clash with rejuvenated Super Eagles on Tuesday. If Nigeria succeeds in flying over the South Americans and berth in the Round of 16, it remains to be seen if Messi will have to wait till Qatar 2022 to try out his luck for the last time.The Barcelona star who will be 35 years in four years time, may not be as sharp as the phenomenon the world has seen since the petit forward started his trophy collection at the global stage with the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Holland in 2005. Incidentally, it was against Nigeria with Mikel in the team, that Messi picked his first FIFA title. Whether thunder will strike twice depends on the character exhibited by Eagles on Tuesday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram By Duro Ikhazuagbe in St PetersburgArgentina’s superstar footballer, Lionel Messi, was 31 years old yesterday. As usual, the Barcelona forward did not celebrate the day in any special way. It was like any other day at the team’s camp base in Bronnitsy, a city about 54km away from Moscow.Instead of the usual winning and dinning associated with such special days, the Argentine captain had other things in his minds. Messi and his teammates took to the training pitch at the camp base to perfect their game plan for Tuesday’s win or burst Group D last game with Nigeria at the St Petersburg Stadium.last_img read more

Browne and Darnold still competing for starting spot

first_imgGoing into the 2015 season, it was a given that former quarterback Cody Kessler would be the starter. As a result, backup quarterback Max Browne was forced to patiently wait for another season to get his chance.It was initially thought that Browne, a former five-star recruit and Gatorade National Football Player of the Year, was going to be the definite starter heading into the 2016 season.However, head coach Clay Helton decided to give redshirt freshman Sam Darnold a legitimate chance to compete for the starting job. This is not an indication of a lack of confidence in Browne, but rather a testament to the massive improvement that the 19-year-old Darnold has made.“I feel like I could work on maintaining my mechanics and just keeping in the playbook — mastering the offense as much as I can,” Darnold said when asked what areas he felt needed work.At Pac-12 Media Day in July, Helton said the fact that Browne is a redshirt junior has no bearing on who ends up starting.“We are so fortunate at ‘SC to have the young men we have,” Helton said. “One of the things that they understand is when you come to ‘SC, it’s about competition. It doesn’t matter whether you are a junior, whether you’re a freshman — the best player plays.”Browne has had more time in the current offensive system and has gotten more reps in with the first team during practice. While this gives Browne the slight edge, it does not guarantee the starting position. Darnold has never played a snap for the Trojans, but in his time with the team, Browne has officially only thrown 19 pass attempts.On the first day of fall camp many felt, including Helton, that the team depth was the best it has been in some time.“It felt a little like a different team than spring,” Helton said.Darnold agreed with his coach.“There’s a different feel obviously [compared to spring ball], because we have Alabama the first game and the season is really close,” Darnold said. “It’s going to be a long season but we are looking forward to it.”Though many see a battle between two talented quarterbacks as a good problem to have, many  would have preferred a pick after the spring game. However, before the whispers of quarterback instability gain traction, it’s crucial to note that many talented programs have delayed making a choice and had tremendous success. Former examples include Johnny Manziel, named a starter on Aug. 15 at Texas A&M; Marcus Mariota, named a starter on Aug. 24 at Oregon; and Jameis Winston, named a starter on Aug. 23 at Florida State.During the first fall practice, Helton confirmed he would name a starting quarterback on Aug. 20.“Today both of them played well,” Helton said. “You didn’t see interceptions out there, and there were some big plays down the field. I look forward to watching the tape over the next practices and see how both progress … Competition is a good thing.”Despite the seemingly close battle, it appears that Browne will likely be the starter. Even the ambitious Darnold couldn’t help but compliment his competitor.“Max can run as well. He’s a threat to run the ball,” Darnold said. “He’s worked really hard on that — harder than anyone that I’ve ever known — at getting faster and stronger.”The athleticism and arm strength of Browne has been stated ad nauseam throughout his tenure. One thing that cannot be overlooked is Browne’s poise as he enters his fourth fall with the program. The team would be hard pressed to find a more patient player as he competes for a starting job. When asked how he felt regarding the Aug. 20 depth chart, Browne agreed with his coach.“It makes sense,” Browne said. “If I was head coach I’d do the same thing. You talk about that two-week mark, you have a mock week of what a game week is going to be like. Then it’s ’Bama week.”The two quarterbacks and the rest of the Trojans continue to practice before starting positions are named and the true preparation for the Alabama opener begins.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The post season starts tonight for several Sumner County basketball teams not named Wellington.Here’s a run down of four sub-states that include Sumner County teams.BOYSClass 3A CHENEY SUB STATEMonday – first round:#8 Belle Plaine (3-17) at #1 Garden Plain (16-4).#5 Douglass (8-12) at #4 Cheney (12-8).#7 Leon-Bluestem (3-17) at #2 Conway Springs (16-4).#6 Chaparral (4-16) at #3 Wichita Independent (14-6).Thursday semifinals at Cheney Belle Plaine-Garden Plain winner vs. Douglass-Cheney winner, times TBA.Bluestem-Conway Springs winner vs. Chaparral-W. Independent winner, times TBA.Saturday – Finals at Cheney, 7:30 p.m. Analysis: This is wide-open sub-state in which four teams have a good chance of winning the tournament. Garden Plain is the hottest team here at 16-4 – last losing to Cheney on Feb. 2. Conway Springs hasn’t looked crisp as of late, losing to Wichita Trinity and barely getting past Medicine Lodge. However, it picked up a 10-point win over Cheney to close out the regular season.Both Wichita Independent and Cheney also have potential of winning this tournament. Cheney playing at home could be big for this group of Cardinals.Class 2A SEDAN SUB STATETuesday:#8 Udall (5-15) at #1 Sedan (19-0)#5 Yates Center (10-10) at #4 Pittsburg Colgan (12-7).#7 Oswego (7-12) at #2 West Elk (14-6).#3 Uniontown (13-7) at #6 Oxford (8-12).Friday – Semifinals at Sedan.Saturday – Finals, 7:30 p.m.Analysis. Oxford would have to go on the run of its life to come out of this sub-state a winner. Sedan is the favorite to win at home but keep your eye on Pittsburg Colgan as the No. 4 seed as a tournament dark horse.Class 1A Div. 1DEXTER SUB STATEMonday#1 Pretty Prairie (13-7) bye#5 Fairfield (4-16) at #4 Central-Burden (4-15)#2 South Barber (11-9) bye#6 South Haven (3-16) at #3 Dexter/Cedar Vale (10-11)Thursday– semifinals at Dexter.Saturday – Finals, 7:30 p.m.Analysis: South Haven has had just one league win and it was against Udall. It wasn’t but a few years ago when South Haven and Udall were big-time players battling each other for the opportunity to get to state.Class 1A Div. 2 CALDWELL SUB STATEMonday#1 Attica (18-2) bye.#5 Norwich (7-13) at #4 Caldwell (12-8)#2 Argonia (14-6) bye.  #6 Cunningham (4-15) at #3 Ashland (13-6).Thursday– semifinals at Caldwell.Saturday – Finals, 7:30 p.m.Analysis: This sub-state looks very, very interesting. Caldwell is sitting at 12-8 and hosts of its own sub-state. Yet it is only a fourth seed. The scenario of a Titan Bowl Sub-state Championship featuring Attica vs. Argonia looks promising.GIRLSClass 3A CHENEY SUB STATETuesday#8 Belle Plaine (1-19) at #1 Garden Plain (18-2).#5 Douglass (11-9) at #4 Wichita Independent (13-7).#7 Chaparral (1-19) at #2 Conway Springs (17-3).#6 Bluestem (3-17) at Cheney (13-7).Friday (at Cheney)Belle Plaine-Garden Plain winner vs. Douglass-W. Independent winner, times TBA.Chaparral-Conway Springs winner vs. Bluestem/Cheney winner, times TBA.Saturday – Finals, 6 p.m. Analysis: This sub-state is loaded. Conway Springs comes in as the Central Plains League champions, but is a No. 2 seed to Garden Plain because the Owls have the better record. Conway Springs and Garden Plain have placed twice with Conway Springs winning the league contest.However, don’t count out Cheney, Wichita Independent and Douglass which all factor into pulling off the upset. Cheney is at home so there is that.Class 2A SEDAN SUB STATEMonday:#8 Yates Center (2-18) at #1 Sedan (18-1)#5 Udall (9-11) at #4 Pittsburg Colgan (10-9).#7 Oxford (4-15) at #2 Uniontown (13-7).#3 Oswego (11-9) at #6 West Elk (5-14).Thursday – Semifinals at Sedan.Saturday – Finals, 6 p.m.Analysis. Like the boys, the Oxford girls would have to pull off some incredible upsets to win.Class 1A Div. 1DEXTER SUB STATETuesday#1 South Barber (15-5) bye#5 Pretty Prairie (3-17) at #4 Central-Burden (9-12)#2 South Haven (11-8) bye.#6 Dexter/Cedar Vale (2-17) at #3 Fairfield (10-10)Friday- semifinals at Dexter.Saturday – Finals, 6 p.m.Analysis: South Haven girls will probably play Fairfield on Friday. A victory there could pit the Cardinals against South Barber, which is 15-5.Class 1A Div. 2 CALDWELL SUB STATETuesday#1 Norwich (19-1) bye.#5 Argonia  (8-13) at #4 Caldwell (9-11)#2 Cunningham (15-5) bye.   #6 Ashland (3-16) vs. #3 Attica (15-5)Friday– semifinals at Caldwell.Saturday – Finals, 6 p.m.Analysis: Argonia and Caldwell have a very interesting first-round matchup tomorrow. The winner then plays Norwich, a heavy favorite to win the Caldwell sub-state.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
