Jackson concerned about Bryant’s lack of focus

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Bryant did not practice again Saturday, the product of a sprained right wrist that remains painful. The Lakers are off today and have only one more day of practice before Tuesday’s season opener, but Bryant is expected to play. The bigger question is whether or not Bryant is dedicated to giving his all to the Lakers. “It was my feeling, from a conversation with Kobe (before camp), that he was going to work at this thing and put his full being into this,” Jackson said. “Right now he’s having a hard time doing that.” Jackson added his belief that Bryant’s attitude has had an adverse effect on the other players. “I think that they were, that they are, a little bit confused,” Jackson said. “Obviously, he hasn’t thrown his heart and soul into performing on the floor, and I think that hurts a little bit. “I think they’re enjoying their time together right now. I think they liked the game (in Las Vegas). They had a good time together, and it was good for them. But I think there’s a certain sense of, `How does this all fit together?”‘ By Rich Hammond STAFF WRITER Kobe Bryant showed up for training camp and declared himself ready to focus on basketball and winning games. Almost four weeks later, Lakers coach Phil Jackson isn’t convinced. After Saturday’s practice, Jackson issued a subtle, but biting, critique of Bryant’s effort this month, one in which the coach said Bryant has not succeeded in “mentally getting himself here and playing hard.” So, what to do? While not closing off the possibility of trading Bryant, Jackson called the possibility “very slim” and said the Lakers are not in “fire-sale time.” Jackson was asked if, as the coach, he bore the responsibility of getting through to Bryant and bringing him back into the fold of the team. “In a certain manner, yes,” Jackson said. “But in this regard, I’ve been working on it since June 1. Is that about the day the whole thing started?” Bryant’s trade-me, trade-me-not summer figured to be a distraction for the Lakers. Since June, however, Bryant has remained quiet and not made a public issue of his presumed desire to leave. Bryant, in a playful mood, froze up Saturday when Jackson’s concerns about his state of mind were brought up. “That’s the least of his concerns, or anybody’s concerns,” Bryant said. “You don’t got to worry about that.” Asked if he was concerned that his situation might negatively impact the team, Bryant shook his head. “I don’t know what situation you’re talking about,” Bryant said. “I told you, I’m not going to talk about it no more.” rich.hammond@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Latest: Chelsea 1 Schalke 1 – Blues rattled by Huntelaar equaliser

first_imgKlaas-Jan Huntelaar netted a 62nd-minute equaliser for Schalke at Stamford Bridge. Cesc Fabregas’ first goal for Chelsea had given them a flying start in their opening Champions League game.Fabregas struck in the 11th minute when he found Eden Hazard on the left and then collected the Belgian’s pass before steering his shot beyond keeper Ralf Fährmann.Schalke were unhappy because Fabregas appeared to foul Max Meyer before scoring, but the tables were turned in the second half because Chelsea felt the Spaniard was fouled in the build-up to Huntelaar’s leveller.After Fabregas was bundled off the ball, Julian Draxler burst downfield and picked out skipper Huntelaar, who fired into the bottom corner.It came against the run of play as Chelsea appeared to be in control.They made a bright start and Ramires should have put them ahead but miscued after being found by Didier Drogba.After the opener, Hazard’s low shot was blocked before Fabregas might have scored a second but blazed over following great work on the right by Branislav Ivanovic.At the other end, Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois did well when he was finally called upon, palming away an effort from former Tottenham man Kevin-Prince Boateng.And in the final minute of the first half, Draxler missed a great chance for the German side when he shot wide of the far post.Drogba recovered from an ankle problem in time for the match and is making his first start since returning to the Bridge, while summer signing Filipe Luis was handed his full debut.Drogba looked set to score with a tap-in early in the second half but the Ivorian failed to make contact with Willian’s excellent ball into the danger area.And he missed another chance shortly before Schalke’s equaliser, dragging a shot wide after being put through by Hazard.Oscar has been sent on in place of Ramires as Chelsea look to regain the lead. Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Luis; Matic, Fabregas; Ramires (Oscar 67), Willian, Hazard; Drogba.

Ohio Forage and Grassland Council highlights bright opportunities for the future of grazing

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Last week the Ohio Forages and Grassland Council (OFGC) held their Annual Conference at the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The program covered topics including research into the value of irrigating pasture, the benefits of reduced lignin alfalfa in increasing digestibility and the use of nitrogen inhibitors in pasture.All of the components of the program were to help attendees piece together a plan for better managing their pastures in the future.“A long time ago, 99% of farms were actively grazing, even up in my neighborhood in northwest Ohio. Now it is predominantly corn and soybeans road to road. But at one time everybody had grazing,” said Gary Wilson from Hancock County, with the OFGC. “As economic conditions become harder, doesn’t it make sense to have animals do the work and the harvesting? The problem is that a lot of the experience and intellect to take care of animals has left with the previous generations, but we are learning more and there is a tremendous future. There are a lot of acres under grass in Ohio. Forages and grazing have a strong history and strong future.”With improved research into forage blends and management techniques and the use of technology, the grazing season can extend through much of the year, or all year.“There are opportunities with better yields and better quality. There is a lot of research about how you can go into winter with grazing,” Wilson said. “Anyone who has been grazing stockpiled forages has been doing well this winter and you are not using stored feeds that have a lot more cost because of the harvesting equipment and labor to get those crops off.”There are benefits, but successful intensive grazing efforts must be carefully managed.“Every day you have to manage it. A lot of people I work with want me to give them a cookie cutter method to do it this way and you’ll be good for this year. Every day you have to think about when you should turn them into a new pasture, when you should take them out of the old pastures. The problem we have in the spring is that we have more forages than livestock, and then in the summer we have the opposite — we have too much livestock and not enough forage. We have to take the extremes out of this equation. We can do that with management,” Wilson said. “You have to think through that because it involves your resources, different species, your soil type and many other factors. It takes planning and every day you have to think about what you want to do.”The OFGC also presented awards at the event, including the Bob Evans Leadership Award to Bill Dix and Stacy Hall, the Outstanding Producer Award to Scott Myers, Woodlyn Acres Farm, and the Jack Tucker Distinguished Service Award to Dan Fullenkamp.last_img read more
