“When it was announced that Todd was moving to Athens and the Center for Urban Agriculture was seeking a training coordinator, it was the right time in my career to reach out to a statewide audience and challenge myself personally and professionally,” Huber said. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with some amazing students at Southern Crescent (Technical College) over the past decade, and now I look forward to serving them as industry professionals through the Center for Urban Agriculture.” Huber and his wife, Beth, a speech pathologist and coordinator for the Exceptional Children’s Services Program of Fayette County Public Schools, are residents of Pike County, Georgia. They have three children: Davis, 12; Brooks, 9; and Eliza, 6. For more information on the Georgia Center for Urban Agriculture, visit ugaurbanag.com. After college, he worked at Breedlove Land Planning, in Conyers, Georgia, where he prepared site construction documents, grading plans and stormwater drainage plans for schools, parks and recreation facilities. “Our specialty was site planning for public school systems across Georgia,” he said. “One of my first projects was designing a new student plaza, bus loop and baseball complex for my alma mater, North Gwinnett High School.”Transitioning into the world of higher education, Huber first worked part-time at Southern Crescent Technical College while also operating a landscape design and consulting business before becoming the college’s full-time horticulture instructor. He enjoys teaching and especially likes installing landscape projects and watching them develop over time. “Having a photo record of landscape projects from installation to maturity is a great teaching tool. It really helps the students understand how a seemingly sparse landscape installation project can grow into a fully developed garden,” he said. “It is rewarding to see a space turn out just the way you imagined it on paper.” Huber served on the GCLP Task Force and collaborated on many projects with former GCLP training coordinator Todd Hurt, who has since transferred to UGA’s Athens Campus where he now coordinates statewide programs for UGA Cooperative Extension. Huber has been an advocate of the GCLP program since the beginning of his teaching career and used the GCLP study manual in several of his classes at Southern Crescent Technical College. Georgia registered landscape architect Greg Huber has joined the staff of the University of Georgia Griffin Campus as the training coordinator for the Georgia Center for Urban Agriculture.Huber comes to UGA after spending the past 10 years as program coordinator, lead instructor and adviser for the horticulture program at Southern Crescent Technical College in Griffin, Georgia. Many of his former students are employed in Georgia’s green industry — which encompasses landscaping, lawn maintenance and horticulture — and will likely attend the Georgia Certified Landscape Professional (GCLP) and Georgia Certified Plant Professional programs he now leads. “I am thrilled to welcome Greg as our newest member of the Center for Urban Agriculture team. Our programs and clientele will certainly benefit from his unique areas of expertise, experience and the energy he brings to every initiative,” said Kris Braman, director of the center and entomologist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.A native of Suwanee, Georgia, Huber’s first experience working in the green industry was at a Christmas tree farm. “While in high school, I spent summer and winter breaks at the tree farm,” he said. “I planted, pruned and fertilized during summers and assisted customers with harvesting, shaking and loading trees during the holidays. I discovered that I really enjoyed working outside.” Huber took that love of the outdoors and plants into college, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from UGA.
Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 LOS ANGELES — With Washington’s reserve center Moe Wagner sidelined Sunday with a sprained ankle, leaving Thomas Bryant as the Wizards’ only active center, the Clippers presumed an advantage in the post.Total bummer for the Clippers’ starting center Ivica Zubac.He said he’d been looking forward to going against both of his former Lakers teammates.“I wish it was both of them because I could talk a lot of trash to both of them, because they’ve been with me. We’ve been going through the same stuff with the Lakers,” said Zubac, whose two and a half seasons with L.A. overlapped separately with Bryant and Wagner, who’ve both shown significant growth since joining the Wizards. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Together, they bounced back and forth between the L.A. Lakers and their G League counterparts in the South Bay, a back-and-forth that could be tricky, even if it helped forge toughness.“It’s easier when they sent you to the G League for two weeks and you’re there, but we were just going one night there, other night back with the Lakers, third day practice for the Lakers, game for South Bay,” Zubac recalled. “That was tough, but it’s a good experience, it makes you stronger going through everything.“So I’ve been with (Bryant) for a year, but it feels like more, because we’ve been through NBA, G League, and everything else.”Related Articles Zubac said he’s been rooting for Bryant from afar and that the two have remained in touch, including joining the same pickup action over the summer at UCLA.“I always knew what he got and he just needed a chance, and he could never get a chance on the Lakers,” Zubac said. “So when he got cut, then they picked him up, that was really good for him. He showed what he got, got him a contract and it’s been great to see.”MCGRUDER’S STATUSClippers coach Doc Rivers didn’t offer an update on Rodney McGruder, who’s missing his second game with a right hamstring strain, except to say that he doubts the guard is “close to returning.”“He may be out there shooting,” Rivers said. “But I don’t think he’s close.” Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum On June 30, 2018, the same day the Lakers guaranteed Zubac’s contract for the upcoming season, the team waived Bryant, who was picked up by the Wizards two days later, and has since carved out a starting role there. He signed a three-year $25 million deal this past July with Washington, for whom he’s averaging 14.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game this season.Wagner arrived in the nation’s capitol as a piece of the three-team trade that finally brought Anthony Davis to the Lakers. Like Bryant, Wagner has started to establish himself; he currently leads the NBA in true shooting percentage (70.8) and effective field goal percentage (68.1).Zubac, of course, became a Clipper last season at the trade deadline, when he was swapped for Mike Muscala. After signing a four-year, $28.51 million contract in July, he’s been effective as a regular starter and leads the league in offensive rebounding percentage (15.5).Zubac said he believes he, Bryant and Wagner all benefited from their time together as Lakers — a relatively abbreviated period that built close bonds.“We went through a lot of stuff together,” Zubac said. “I got there a year before (Bryant), and I went through the same stuff, and kind of helped him explaining how it goes and what to expect — and I was going through some of the same stuff my second year. So we went through a lot of stuff together, and we built a really good relationship.”
Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said at a news conference that a brothel employee who called 911 reported Odom did cocaine Saturday and had taken up to 10 tabs of a sexual performance enhancer over the past three days. She said he was found unresponsive with blood coming from his nose and mouth.Wehrly earlier said investigators were seeking a blood sample to determine if Odom overdosed on drugs or alcohol.Odom spent most of his 14-year NBA career in Los Angeles with the Lakers and Clippers, becoming a fan favorite before he sought even more fame with the Kardashians.His one-month courtship of Khloe before their huge 2009 wedding was taped for the E! network, and Odom appeared on nearly two dozen episodes of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” as well as other family spinoffs, including his own “Khloe & Lamar” show in 2011 and 2012.• PHOTOS: Lamar Odom on the court and the red carpetKhloe Kardashian called him “Lam-Lam” and worried openly about him on the show. Even after they split up in 2013, cameras recorded her calling him and checking on his welfare.People always seemed to root for Odom, whose prematurely weathered face wore the impact of his personal tragedies in a friendly way. And news of his hospitalization brought an outpouring of dismay and encouragement from his friends and family.Kobe Bryant joined Kardashian and some of Odom’s childhood friends at his bedside after a Tuesday night Lakers game in Las Vegas.“Lamar Odom is one of the greatest people I’ve ever known,” said Derek Fisher, the New York Knicks coach and Odom’s longtime teammate with the Lakers. “I don’t view him through the prism of choices that he’s made … I’m obviously hoping that he can pull through this, and that in some fortunate way this becomes the beginning of a different ending.”Even his estranged father, Joe Odom, was there at the hospital, according to his grandmother, Florence Odom, who told the AP Wednesday that Lamar was “in God’s hands.”Authorities were called to the brothel in Crystal, Nevada, about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday. The 6-foot-10 Odom was too tall for an available helicopter, so he was driven by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Las Vegas.Hof told the AP that his staff had picked up Odom from a home in Las Vegas on Saturday, and he seemed “happy, he was sleeping every night.”“He largely kept to himself, and at no time did he engage in any drug use in the presence of anyone in the house. He did drink alcohol from our bar, and was taking some herbal sexual enhancement capsules,” Hof’s statement said.Odom emerged as one of the most promising basketball talents of his generation after a difficult childhood in Queens, where his mother died of cancer when he was 12 and his estranged father was addicted to heroin. Drugs and crime were rampant in his South Jamaica neighborhood, and he never forgot where he came from, writing tributes to his mother and grandmother on his sneakers before games.Tall enough to play center and skilled enough to be a playmaking guard, the rangy kid with a beautiful shot and exceptional ball-handling skills drew comparisons to Magic Johnson when he played on a traveling youth team alongside Ron Artest, his future Lakers teammate.Despite an abbreviated college career marked by scandal and an arrest in Las Vegas, Odom’s talent was so coveted that he was picked fourth in the 1999 NBA draft by the moribund Clippers. Suddenly, he was “living like a 19-year-old rock star,” he said.Soon after, he was suspended for smoking marijuana.Odom had two children during those years, Destiny and Lamar Jr., with an ex-girlfriend, Liza Morales. The 2006 crib death of another infant son, Jayden, attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, prompted Odom to consider quitting basketball. He played the next season displaying a T-shirt bearing his son’s photo in his locker.• TEAMMATES: News of Lamar Odom’s hospitalization hits LakersOdom loved wearing purple and gold, and his selfless play won him the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award in 2011. He won a second straight NBA title in 2010 while playing alongside Artest, now known as Metta World Peace.But his basketball career faded as his life became a spectacle. He was heartbroken in December 2011 when the Lakers attempted to trade him; he eventually landed in Dallas, where reality TV crews followed.“The year he got traded people wanted to say, ‘Oh, it’s because of the show.’ No one wanted to bring up the accomplishments he had when we were filming,” Khloe Kardashian told the AP in a May 2013 interview. “Lamar loves doing the show and he’s the one who wanted to do ‘Khloe & Lamar” more than I did.”Still, Odom’s behavior increasingly worried family and friends. He pleaded no contest to drunk driving after an arrest in August 2013. Kardashian filed for divorce four months later and has been dating Houston Rockets star James Harden. The divorce has not yet received final approval from a judge.When cameras caught up with Odom on a sidewalk in August, he blamed the media for his downfall.“Y’all have discredited me, beat me down, took my confidence, took everything away from me. You will not do it again,” Odom told TMZ in an interview. “To everybody that I know and that supports me, I’m sorry but it’s just it. The dog has to bite back.”____Contributors include Ken Ritter in Las Vegas, Andrew Dalton and Beth Harris in Los Angeles and Alicia Rancilio in New York. Hospital authorities would not comment on the condition of the 35-year-old former NBA forward, but the Rev. Jesse Jackson was among his visitors. Jackson said Odom was on life support and improving.“Apparently from what the doctor said, he was much better off today than yesterday. He at least has some responsiveness now,” Jackson said. “He’s got tubes in him now but we felt inspired by his presence.”“We’re just holding hands and hoping he can bounce back,” Jackson added.Odom, who was embraced by teammates and television fans alike for his Everyman approach to fame, was found face down and alone Tuesday after spending four days at the Love Ranch, a legal Nevada brothel.Odom started “throwing up all kinds of stuff” after a 911 operator told them to turn him on his side, Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof told The Associated Press in a phone interview. Odom had “spent time socializing with some of my girls,” but wasn’t seen taking any illegal drugs, Hof said. LAS VEGAS >> Lamar Odom didn’t last long at the glittering intersection of championship success and Hollywood celebrity.Cut loose by his beloved Los Angeles Lakers, followed everywhere by reality television crews, the humble kid from Queens who married into the Kardashian clan saw his life spiral out of control, and so did everyone else.Khloe Kardashian tried to hide his addictions, then told the world she couldn’t save him. The two-time NBA champion landed on Skid Row, a regular tabloid target.Then he seemed to drop out altogether before he was found unresponsive in a brothel and hospitalized, bringing his estranged wife, his former teammates and the world’s attention back to his side Wednesday.

The Sagehens have one of the best guards in the conference in David Knowles, who is averaging 16 points and just more than four assists. Whittier has been led by Matt Mesaros and Raphael Farlough. Mesaros, a senior guard, is averaging 13.5 points. Farlough, a sophomore forward, is averaging 12.9 points and 6.7 rebounds. Tip off is 7:30 tonight. The Poets then travel to Claremont-Mudd-Scripps for a game Saturday, also at 7:30 p.m. Rio Hondo’s women’s basketball team is off to a solid start after not having much recent success. The Roadrunners are 12-7 overall, 1-1 in the Foothill Conference heading into a game tonight at home against Victor Valley College. Tip-off is 5 p.m. Leading the way has been Kim Ramirez, a 5-foot-9 freshman out of St. Paul High School. She is averaging 14.1 points and 14.1 rebounds. Ramirez also is averaging 2.5 blocked shots and is shooting 56.9 percent from the field. But she is not alone.

However, Rio Hondo recently received some news that made its season more than worthwhile. The Roadrunners received a No. 6 national ranking in the season-ending poll put out by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. “This is the highest we’ve ever been ranked,” Brenes said. “It’s a tremendous accomplishment for our players and team, especially considering we’re talking the entire nation.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa AnitaThe Roadrunners finished 20-7-2 and registered postseason upsets over Mt. San Antonio College and L.A. Harbor. Rio Hondo was led by, among others, Carlos Lopez, Javier Delgadillo and Jeff Meyer. Whittier College has done well of late in men’s basketball. The Poets have won their past three games and tonight will take a 6-5 record into the beginning of SCIAC play. Unfortunately for Whittier, it will be traveling to Pomona-Pitzer for a game against the two-time defending conference champion Sagehens. Pomona-Pitzer is only 5-5, but it has played a very difficult nonconference schedule. Two of its losses were to UC San Diego, a Division II school, and Amherst College, which was ranked No. 4 in Division III. Rio Hondo College, after a gut-wrenching 3-2 loss to Santa Rosa last month in the state men’s soccer semifinals in Fresno, was upset because it believed it had been victim of poor officiating. Said officiating, Roadrunners coach Orlando Brenes believed, allowed Santa Rosa a free kick that resulted in the game-winning goal in overtime.

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho proud of Mane assistby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool midfielder Fabinho is delighted after his assist for Sadio Mane’s opener in victory over Manchester United on Sunday.The Brazilian laid on his first goal for Liverpool before turning in a dominant display that led to an eventual 3-1 victory.“It’s a thing I always try to perfect, to train,” Fabinho said of his chipped pass. “I get a lot of [the] ball, in a position that normally the opponent’s defence is making the move outwards, and our attackers are getting in.“I saw Mane making the sign with his hand and I launched it.”It was a good pass.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

He’s 18 years of age and can spray the ball around like that, left or right, and he is full of confidence.”He can go on the outside and come on the inside.”Everything Chelsea did well he was at the heart of it.“He did his bit defensively which he had to do and he was hugging the touchline, and with that drive that he’s got he makes it very difficult for defenders.”For the goal he sets it up for Alonso, puts it into his path and says ‘go on, have a go’ and that was the winning goal. Chelsea were the better team and deserved to score.”
NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – NOVEMBER 19: A general view during the first half of a game between the Cincinnati Bearcats and Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Rutgers Stadium on November 19, 2011 in New Brunswick, New Jersey. (Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty Images)Gibsonton (Fla.) East Bay defensive end Marques Ford was committed to Tennessee for six months until losing his scholarship on Jan. 21 due to a numbers crunch in the Vols’ class. Ford rebounded by committing to Rutgers two days later, and indicated after his official visit to RU this weekend that he planned to sign with the Scarlet Knights.Because Tennessee lost a commitment from four-star running back Kendall Bussey this afternoon, some Vols’ fans on Twitter broached the idea of trying to bring Ford back into the fold, but the four-star recruit dismissed any notion of that tonight.All this talk about me going back to Tennessee and im just like .. #CHOPNation pic.twitter.com/TW7S9VZabP— 5⃣6⃣ (@Marques_Ford) February 3, 2015Even with Bussey de-committing, it’s doubtful Tennessee would have tried to move back in on Ford. If they did, he indicated he wouldn’t be interested. Somehow, I think this one works out well for all parties: UT still has a highly-rated class under Butch Jones, Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood lands a talented four-star and Ford ends up in a place where he is clearly wanted.
