It’s not quite a dynasty, but one Terrell County, Georgia, teenager has ruled the competitive pumpkin-growing circuit for youth in Georgia for the last two years. For the second year in a row, Caroline Daniel of Terrell County 4-H won first place in Georgia 4-H’s annual pumpkin contest. This year, her behemoth Atlantic Giant pumpkin weighed in at 350 pounds. In 2014, Daniel’s pumpkin came in first at 430 pounds. While she did not match her own personal best this year, her pumpkin was more than twice the size of the second place gourd. Daniel, who inherited her green thumb from her father, Mark Daniel, of Mark’s Melon Patch in Dawson, Georgia, comes from a family of dedicated Georgia 4-H’ers. Each year her father sets aside a separate patch at his commercial melon farm in which his daughter grows pumpkins and watermelons for competition, said Terrell County 4-H agent Margaret Halbrook. “It is just really cool (that Mark provides Caroline with the space to grow pumpkins and watermelons) because she’s able to work beside him and learn the way he does things, but she has her own distinct part of the farm to work in,” Halbrook said. This is Daniel’s last year of eligibility for the Georgia 4-H Pumpkin Growing Contest, Halbrook said. Her fellow Terrell County 4-H’ers are sad to see her go, but joke that they’re eager to see if they can take the top prize next year without her in the competition. Daniel is one of dozens of Georgia 4-H club members who enter the club’s annual pumpkin-growing contest each year. On average, Halloween pumpkins are about 10 to 20 pounds each. The 4-H’ers who placed in this year’s top 10 managed to raise gourds that were at least five times as large as the average jack-o’-lantern. Kellee Alday of Seminole County, Georgia, took home second place with her 148-pound Atlantic Dill pumpkin, and Savannah Crosby of Lumpkin County, Georgia, took home third place with her 147-pound gourd. The top three 4-H’ers will receive a cash prize from the Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association in recognition of the months they spent tending their plants. Other Georgia 4-H club members who produced pumpkins of note this year and the size of their pumpkins are as follows:Fourth place: Ella Daniel of Tift County, Georgia, 124 poundsFifth place: Bradden Weeks of Tift County, 111 poundsSixth place: Ree Daniel of Tift County, 110 poundsSeventh place: Collin Weeks of Tift County, 99 poundsEighth place: Bradley Cohen of Grady County, Georgia, 94 poundsNinth place: Taylor Walker of Tift County, 92 poundsTenth-place tie: Ansley Starling of Tift County, 83 pounds, and Janeth Vasquez of Tift County, 83 poundsGeorgia 4-H leaders say the pumpkin contest teaches students the responsibility needed to complete a long-term project, the self-motivation and confidence needed to tackle a project independently and the ability to use problem-solving skills to persevere against insects, dry spells and pumpkin diseases. “The 4-H Pumpkin Growing Contest is a great project to get kids digging in the dirt, planting seeds and learning about gardening. Whether their pumpkin ends up the size of a Volkswagen Beetle or just a grape, 4-H’ers can experience firsthand the challenges and satisfaction of growing plants,” said Jeff Buckley, a Georgia 4-H faculty member who has coordinated the contest in the past. “Perhaps this contest will spark an interest in gardening that will guide them to a career in the agricultural and environmental sciences.” To learn more about the Georgia 4-H Pumpkin Growing Contest, contact contest organizer Olivia Browning at [email protected] or call (706) 542-4H4H (4444).

Uganda National Team’s Head Coach Milutin Micho Sredojevic is confident to face Ghana in the group stage qualifier of Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] 2015 set for Saturday 6 September.The Serbian tactician who was speaking to the Ugandan federation’s website after losing 2-0 to Niger in a build up match which was played at Niamey on Monday 1 September, expressed his confidence in his preparations and left the task to the players.”I have done my part, now go for exams. I am confident you will pass”, the tactician said.The Cranes who were expected to leave for Ghana from Niger at 1600 hours will be without the services of marksman Dan Sserunkuma.
Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers There was some good news on Friday: Kuzma (left foot stress reaction) was seen shooting off of both feet after practice, after shooting one-footed jumpers on Monday. But the 24-year-old isn’t scheduled for another MRI until after the team returns from China on Oct. 12, just 10 days before the season.The team isn’t sure how soon Kuzma will be able to return to playing shape once he’s re-evaluated.“He’s missed a significant amount of time already,” Vogel said. “We’ll see where he’s at when we get back from China. Hopefully, he’s cleared and we can start activating him for practice. We’ll be smart still.”As one of the team’s leading returning scorers, there’s an obvious use for Kuzma’s scoring ability and length on both ends of the court. While James snipped at a reporter Thursday for asking what the team is missing in Kuzma – “we know what we have in Kuzma” he insisted – he also acknowledged the void.“Multi-dimensional, talented,” he said. “Can shoot the ball from the outside. Can run the floor extremely well. He’s a 6-foot-9 forward, guard, whatever you need him (to be). He moves great without the ball.” Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years The Lakers feel as though they’ve already worked through a lot of things behind closed doors, even if not all of the answers will be revealed on Saturday. The biggest thing McGee said he was looking forward to is variety in his competition.“I’m tired of looking at these guys in the face,” he said. “I’m ready to look at some other people, and dunk on some other people.”COULD KUZMA MISS START OF SEASON?With one week of camp under their belts, the Lakers have been most cautious with Jared Dudley, who has sat out several scrimmage sessions and won’t play at Golden State on Saturday. But the concern is less about the 34-year-old’s sore knees, and more about protecting the shallow small forward depth as Kyle Kuzma’s prognosis remains frustratingly uncertain.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs EL SEGUNDO — The LeBron-And-A.D. Era begins in earnest on Saturday evening. Just expect the debut to be brief.Both LeBron James and Anthony Davis will be ready to play against the Golden State Warriors in the Lakers’ first preseason game on Saturday (5 p.m.) in the newly minted Chase Center in San Francisco. But Coach Frank Vogel is risk-averse when it comes to playing his go-to players too long in exhibitions: It’s unlikely that either of the Lakers’ two most prominent stars will get a lot of floor time.“My preference is that your main guys play as little as possible,” he said Friday, as the team was preparing for its first flight of the season. “Basically have the mindset of only enough – as much as we need to get a rhythm, not more than that.”Vogel didn’t acknowledge a specific hard cap to either James’ or Davis’ minutes, saying the coaching staff would “feel it out” and would be looking for both rhythm and conditioning from the top-line Lakers. But neither will play a full game. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersBeyond the idea that those two stars will be the bedrock of the Lakers’ starting lineup, many other details of the rotation remain a mystery. It’s not clear who will start at center between JaVale McGee and Dwight Howard. While Danny Green is an expected starter at one guard position, the other is arguably the question of training camp, particularly with James expected to play point guard for much of the time while he’s on the floor.The biggest hint Vogel has given to how the playing time will be divvied up has come in the last few days, as he’s suggested that he’ll look for ways to stagger James and Davis, keeping one of the two on the floor for most of the game. But it’s unclear what the lineups will precisely look like around them in those instances, particularly with a diverse array of guards and wings who have dramatically different strengths.Given that James and Rajon Rondo are the Lakers’ most productive playmakers from last season (both averaged more than eight assists per game last year), Vogel acknowledged it makes sense to play Rondo alongside Davis as a ball-handler and creator when James rests. But the coach also continued to push the idea that Rondo, entering his 14th season, could become more of an off-ball shooting threat that could also play alongside James if needed.“Honestly, I like him out there with LeBron every bit as much, so it’s not a situation where I’m only going to try to pair him up with Anthony Davis,” he said. “I like those two guys together. Again, I think Rajon is going to have an exceptional year shooting the basketball this year, and he allows LeBron to exercise his versatility at coming off the ball.”Assuming both Steph Curry and D’Angelo Russell play on Saturday, the Lakers will also get a look at how they match up defensively against two All-Star guards – the first such test in a Western Conference full of them. The Lakers’ plan is to start Davis at power forward alongside Howard or McGee at center. With James also starting, the Lakers could look at placing another defense-oriented wing next to Green (Avery Bradley, it’s worth noting, has drawn numerous rave reviews in camp).
Džanan Musa scored the unbelievable 50 points in the match against Taiwan and thus set the world record in the number of points scored in a single match of the World Championship.Before Musa, the French Jaylen Hoard and Australian Isaac Humphries scored 41 points each.
