Expert judges evaluate their work and interview them on their presentations and portfolios.”What was relevant to their young lives in the early 20th century has changed over the years,” Ryles said, “and 4-H has changed, too, to remain relevant.”A banquet July 26 honored state winners.This year’s winners, projects and donors, listed by their home counties:Bartow: Abbey Hufstetler, public speaking, Farm Credit Associations of Georgia.Bleckley: Chelsea Sawyer, sports, White Water.Bulloch: Ashlin Reid, entomology, Georgia Pest Control Association and the UGA entomology department.Charlton: Richard Capps II, health, Ellinore Nicholson, Mr. and Mrs. Lamar Martin and the Georgia 4-H Foundation.Chattooga: April Blackwell, fruits, vegetables and nuts, Meadows-Knox Family Fund and Alice Griffin Howard.Clarke: Joseph Stunzi, physical, biological and earth science, Georgia Electric Membership Corporation.Clayton: Kenneth Evans, photography, GEMC Georgia Magazine.Columbia: Valeria Nwabiani, bread, Georgia 4-H Foundation.Coweta: Michelle Landrein, communications, Georgia 4-H Volunteer Leaders Association; Katy Kirbow, horse, Georgia 4-H Foundation; Ethan Robertson, plant and soil science, Georgia Plant Food Educational Society, Inc.Crisp: Lauren Edalgo, performing arts – vocal, Six Flags Over Georgia.Dade: Amy Tamburello, textiles, merchandising and interiors, Georgia 4-H Foundation.Douglas: Emily Dunnell, food fast and healthy, M.K. “Curly” Cook Family in memory of Sandra B.

LAT/USC poll: Voters lean toward Brown

first_imgDemocratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown has a slight edge over his Republican rival Meg Whitman, according to a new poll conducted by the Los Angeles Times and USC’s College of Letters, Arts & Sciences.The poll is part of a series of six statewide opinion polls that began in November 2009 and will continue until the November elections this year. The most recent poll surveyed 1,511 registered voters in the state, including 887 likely voters, from Sept. 15 to 22.Laurel Van Patton | Daily TrojanAbout 49 percent of voters said they would vote for Brown if the governor’s election were held today, compared to 44 percent of voters who supported Whitman. Five percent were undecided, according to the poll.Brown’s five-point lead is because of his double-digit advantage among likely Latino voters, who voted 55 to 35 percent in favor of Brown with 10 percent undecided, said Darry Sragow, interim director of the Los Angeles Times/USC poll.“We included a very large Latino oversample in the poll,” Sragow said. “These data are stronger in relation to the number of Latino voters because the samples were much closer to the actual demographics.”The poll showed that Whitman has had trouble connecting with voters, polling 12 points behind Brown on whether she “understands the problems and concerns of people like me.”Whitman scored positively among only 36 percent of voters, versus Brown’s 48 percent.“We all noticed that [Whitman’s] support levels reached a certain point, then seemed to stall,” Sragow said. “Brown has been ramping up his campaign, so you’d expect to see his force solidifying.”Whitman did score high, however, among voters who thought she had more “new ideas to help California,” scoring positively with 48 percent of voters; compared to Brown’s 32 percent.Neither candidate has an advantage among voters on immigration or taxes, but potential voters believe Brown would do a better job on education by a margin of 47 to 33 percent.“[Voters] are divided on whether they want a governor with business experience or government experience,” Sragow said. “They overwhelmingly prefer a governor who will be collaborative rather than confrontational.”A majority of voters were also in support of Democrat Barbara Boxer in the race for the U.S. Senate. Boxer leads among 51 percent of likely voters, compared to 43 percent for former Hewlett-Packard Co. chairman and CEO and Republican candidate Carly Fiorina.A majority of women support Boxer — 53 percent to Fiorina’s 39 percent — as do a majority of decline-to-state voters, of whom she holds 56 percent of the vote to Fiorina’s 34 percent.“A large number of people still seem to remain undecided,” said Jane Junn, professor of political science at USC. “And this is among likely voters, adding uncertainty to the campaign.”last_img read more

Syracuse falls to Portland in foul-ridden game, 2-1

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments After failing to record a stat in SU’s season opener, junior Massimo Ferrin made his presence known for the Orange at about the 17 minute mark, putting a shot on goal from the top of the box. Portland goalie Kienan Weekes made the first save of the night, though, keeping the contest scoreless. But Ferrin wasn’t done, creating another opportunity 8 minutes later, this time for a teammate. A Pilots shot sailed wide right of the goal and Syracuse pushed the ball up the field to Ferrin, who found fellow forward Tajon Buchanan just in front of the box. Buchanan sidestepped his defender and found a hole by the left post past Weekes, and the Orange was on the board. “We still haven’t seen the best Massimo,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “He’s gonna be an important part of us moving forward. We’ve got to get him in better spots. He’s a creative handful. I think he was good tonight, but he can be better.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhile the first 25 minutes of the game saw six shots and eight fouls, the following 20 minutes of the half were increasing choppy. The teams combined for 11 fouls and failed to record a shot, and Syracuse went into the break with a 1-0 advantage. “I think the referees, especially in the second half, called it a little bit tight and maybe a little bit inconsistent,” McIntyre said. “It was a combative, competitive game, it wasn’t over the line. The fouls did disrupt the flow of the game a little bit.”The dry spell continued after halftime, as neither goalies were tested through the first 12 minutes and the Pilots earned two yellow cards. But in the 57th minute Portland finally broke through, attempting the first shot of the half and converting on it. Benji Miller connected on a header to the right post for his second goal of the season, and the game was tied at 1.Four substitutions by the Orange in the next 16 minutes failed to spark its offense, and Portland continued to stop the SU attack. Syracuse earned a corner kick but it was all for not, as the Pilots deflected it away and turned toward the Orange half of the field. An overzealous challenge in the penalty box by freshman Ryan Raposo got him a yellow card and gave Portland a penalty kick. Rey Ortiz snuck the attempt past SU goalie Hendrik Hilpert, and the Pilots took the lead. The Orange couldn’t find its footing until the 89th minute, when it nearly tied the game with two last-chance opportunities. Raposo almost made up for his earlier blunder with a shot on goal from the left wing, but Weekes was there to make his second save of the night. Ferrin corralled the rebound and got off a second shot which sailed wide left, ending SU’s chance at a comeback.“We’re still trying to work things out in the attacking area,” McIntyre said. “We didn’t have as much quality in the final third. Tajon, Massimo, Severin (Soerlie) were causing some problems, I just don’t think we executed that final pass and created enough to merit a win.” On Friday, Syracuse traveled to Oregon State for its season opener and never trailed, putting all seven of its shot attempts on goal and earning just six fouls en route to a 2-1 win. On Sunday against Portland, the Orange took just five shots, tallied 25 fouls, and found itself on the other side of a 2-1 game.Both teams struggled to get much going offensively early on, combining for just one shot attempt through the first 11 minutes. That’s when Portland (1-0-1) managed its first threat of the night, having a shot blocked and followed by a corner kick. The ensuing kick was thwarted however, and the Orange (1-1) took possession, looking to attack the Pilots’ side of the pitch.
