Investigations and consultations with local arborists have concluded that the Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer (PSHB) has very likely found a host in the trees on the eastern side of Maryâ€™s Market Parking Lot, and could very possibly be existing in a number of private trees in the area. The downtown trees, however, do not appear to have been infected by the pest at this time, and will continue to be closely monitored. Staff is arranging to conduct laboratory testing on various samples to further confirm the borer and test for its associated and destructive fungus.The PSHB beetle and its associated fungus is a very destructive pest that has recently been found in parts of Los Angeles and Orange Counties. It is also a very unique pest in the variety of tree species that have been shown to be hosts. At this time, known hosts include Sycamore (detected in Sierra Madre), Box Elder, Castor Bean, Avocado, Black Locust, English Oak, Liquidamber, Coast Live Oak, Persimmon, California Bay Laurel, Mimosa, Goldenrain, White Alder, Big Leaf Maple, Olive, and Wistaria Vine.There are no known treatments for infected trees at this time. Staff is in contact with a number of agencies that are conducting experimental treatments. Containment of the infestation is the priority right now.Species show various signs of the PSHB; in general look for a newer wound and look for a very small hole that would indicate boring activity. In most cases loose bark can be removed to locate the small hole. Avoid movement of any infested wood out of the area. It is very important to purchase firewood where you intend to burn it. Dead infested wood should be chipped and tarped for no less than 1 week before movement. Tree trimming and landscaping equipment should be sterilized after each location with 25% household bleach or 70% ethyl alcohol.Additional information will be provided as often as possible, including possible treatment and containment recommendations as well as locations of infestations.For additional information contact the City of Sierra Madre Public Works Department at (626) 355-7135.

Wine Opus Do you want to drink good wine, but don’t know what to buy? Do you know what you like, but want to explore new horizons?The Wine Opus harnesses the talent and opinions of a new generation of young wine writers to help you choose the best wines. Over 30 specialists have selected the 4,000 best wineries in the world and their trophy wines. Read their recommendations, from the Rhône to Rioja, from Napa to New Zealand, and from the Mosel to Mendoza in Argentina, and you will never buy bad wine again.If you enjoy drinking good wine, The Wine Opus gives you the names you need to know and introduces you to the new world of wine. Published by DK publishing house, the Wine Opus will be available from good book stores in September. NZ region feels the pinchREPORTS have filtered through the world of wine that several wineries based in New Zealand’s Marlborough have gone into receivership, with indications that more may follow.Earlier this month, Decanter reported that Cape Campbell Wines and its affiliate companies, Brown Sorensen Vineyards and the Brown Family Trust, went into voluntary receivership, owing creditors millions of dollars.The wine news publishers said that PricewaterhouseCoopers, which has been appointed to manage Cape Campbell’s assets, said the three entities had liabilities totalling between $10m and $12m. He said he was unsure whether the company would continue to trade or be liquidated.Last month, Awatere Vineyard Estates, a large contract grower owned by Auckland-based Barry Sutton, was put into receivership in addition to the Marlborough wine company Gravitas.David Cox, European director of the New Zealand Wine Growers Association, said that growers had been hit hardest by the strong New Zealand dollar.“For some (not all) of those wineries who are exporting Sauvignon Blanc, this has been compounded by the oversupply of Sauvignon Blanc from the large 2008 and 2009 vintages which has had an adverse effect on some export prices”, he added.He added that “the 2010 vintage has come in at a reduced tonnage (263,000 tonnes versus 285,000 tonnes in 2009) and yields were down.“As a result, export prices have already started to rise to more profitable levels and the requirement to deplete excess stock is diminishing quickly.” Wine Kiosks IN OTHER wine world news, Decanter reports that for the first time in the US, Pennsylvania shoppers are buying wine from automated wine kiosks.The kiosks, two of which have been installed in the town of Harrisburg, hold up to 53 different wines under temperature-controlled conditions. With some of the most stringent alcohol purchasing laws in the US, Pennsylvania authorities require that the kiosks verify customer age before purchase. Customers must insert their ID to prove their age and a built-in breathalyser takes instant readings. Until now in Pennsylvania, alcohol has been sold in state-owned wine and spirits shops under the authority of the state’s liquor control board, but kiosks will be installed in regular supermarkets for customer convenience.

Horse Sport Enews Email* Saturday was a beautiful day for show jumping at the Desert International Horse Park (DIHP) in Thermal, CA. The newly landscaped arena and snow-capped mountains provided the perfect backdrop as riders vied for the lion’s share of the prize pool. Thirty-three horse and rider combinations entered under the tower into the Grand Prix Stadium ready to compete in the $75,000 Grand Prix, sponsored by Marshall & Sterling. Leading the victory gallop was Shawn Casady (Harriman, TN) aboard Neil Jones’ Lyranta Van’t Gebroekt.Peter Grant of Calgary, Canada designed a well-rounded 1.50m track consisting of sixteen total jumping efforts. The course left riders with a handful of stride and distance options to choose from when cultivating a plan during the walk. Grant included a triple bar as the first fence of the triple combination before a daunting five stride to five stride line.“The triple combination was a really short two with a square oxer out at C, that was tricky,” recounted Casady. “The middle line was a flat five to a short five and some were opting to do 6. There were a lot of options and you just had to do what was right for your horse.”Three riders mastered the course and advanced to the jump-off; Casady and his mount, Mavis Spencer aboard Castelissimo, and Katie Laurie brought back three horses: Concales, Casebrooke Lomond, and McCaw MVNZ. Casady produced the first clear, earning the Roeckl Time to Beat award with a clean round and time of 41.076 seconds. Last to go on Concales, Laurie produced the only other clear ride but couldn’t catch Casady’s time. Tenths of a second behind, Laurie stopped the clock at 41.946 seconds for a second place finish with Concales.Casady gives all the credit to his mount Lyranta Van’t Gebroekt and her enormous stride for the win in the class, “It really is about the amount of ground she covers. The oxer in the middle, I was able to get nine over from one to 15. She just walked it. It was far away at like stride two and three and all of the sudden you are slowing down and she just snaps.”Lyranta Van’t Gebroekt is a fairly new mount for Casady as they have only been paired together since fall of 2020. Casady took his time to get to know the stocky bay mare and found a program that fit. He has been competing with her in the $25,000 National Grand Prixes held on Thursdays and after her FEI debut during Desert Circuit VI, Casady was excited to see how the horse would perform at the 1.50m height.“Last week, I did her in the FEI; her first FEI. She won the 1.40m and had one down in the 1.45m but jumped really well so I decided I would give it a go in the Grand Prix this week. I had one down Thursday and I figured we would see how it goes,” explained Casady.Casady has spent all circuit at DIHP and has enjoyed every minute of it. He has been able to compete in both the hunters and jumpers all while assisting clients.“It has been great. I have been having a blast. The horses have been jumping good; I have had some nice hunters to show, nice jumpers, wonderful students to teach. What I like is that everyone is in one place. I can really work hard and get a lot done.”This is Casady’s first season back since the facility changed management and he is really impressed with all the improvements they have made. Specifically stating, “the courses have been great, I think they have done a great job at throwing new fences in every once in a while.” He continued to compliment the footing changes that have been made to help cushion the ground.The management team will be replacing the footing after the end of the Desert Circuit in both the Grand Prix Stadium as well as the warm-up. It will be the first of its kind and includes an in ground water system, mats, and sand brought in from the east coast. Once complete, the other arenas will be updated as well. In addition, management will start building a new International grass arena to use next season.To view the full results, visit Showgrounds Live.Will Simpson and Whoop De Do emerge victorious in the $10,000 1.35m Open ClassicIn another feature class of the day, Will Simpson (Westlake Village, CA) and Whoop De Doo raced to the win in the $10,000 1.35m Open Classic, sponsored by Stal Hendrix. The duo crossed the timers at 33.669 seconds to clinch the win. Simpson has been attending the Desert Circuit all season long and competes both on a national level and internationally.Jumper riders, including Casady and Simpson, are preparing for the final week of FEI competition during Week VIII that will feature the $250,000 FEI 1.55m CSI4* on the concluding day.

He came to Syracuse as a quarterback, but was primarily a running back and wide receiver.This spring, he could be preparing for a breakthrough year. In practice, he has made plays split out wide, from the backfield and even under center, to prepare for a potential pistol offense.There were signs of progress, but Broyld suffered a high ankle sprain earlier this spring and was ruled out for the remainder of spring practice on March 29 — a setback for a player who wowed coaches early in the season.“It’s too bad, too, because he was playing really well,” head coach Scott Shafer said. “I was really pleased with the way he was playing.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBroyld starred at Rush Henrietta High School in Rochester, N.Y., and Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y., as a quarterback, but moved to running back upon joining the Orange. He rushed for 171 yards as a freshman, highlighted by a 61-yard game and his first career touchdown against Stony Brook, and a 58-yard game against Connecticut.He faded out of the running back rotation down the stretch. He carried the ball just five times in SU’s last five games and failed to see the field in Syracuse’s final two regular-season games.Part of that had to do with the strong running back duo of Prince-Tyson Gulley and Jerome Smith, but it was also the transition to a new position.This year, Shafer wants to use him “all over the place.”“Last year we tried to do it, I wasn’t quite ready. It was a lot for me. It was new,” Broyld said. “I’m glad that I had a chance to mess with it last year, but now I think I’m ready for the whole thing.”The time on the sidelines could help that. Broyld has the potential to be the ultimate gadget player for the Orange. He has the size to handle the ball in the middle of the field, the speed to play down the sidelines or as a return specialist, and the pedigree to take occasional snaps as a quarterback.“Mental reps … that’s just as important as actually being out there getting those actual reps,” quarterback John Kinder said, “so I think it should serve him well.”During seven-on-seven drills in the Orange’s first practice of the spring, Broyld was almost exclusively used as a wide receiver. With the top two wideouts gone from a year ago, it’s perhaps his best opportunity to get onto the field consistently.Broyld has been on the sidelines for each of the Orange’s scrimmages since injuring his ankle, getting a chance to see each of the positions he could play come fall — running back, slot receiver, wideout and quarterback.“He’s a great-looking kid and real exciting — he’s big and he can move real well,” wide receiver Jarrod West said. “He’s real good in open space, so he’ll definitely help us once he gets healthy and comes back.” Comments

The NBA has fined Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson $15,000 for an obscene gesture made toward a group of fans after Monday’s game against the Nets, the league announced Thursday.The 27-year-old flipped off fans as he walked off the court after Cleveland narrowly escaped with a 99-97 victory. It’s not clear what sparked Thompson’s gesture or if the fans were heckling him throughout the game. Thompson had a strong night before making the gesture, finishing with 19 points and 14 rebounds in the win against the Nets. Warriors star Stephen Curry says it ‘was a little weird’ playing Cavaliers without LeBron James Thompson’s fine is relatively small in comparison to punishments a few other NBA players have faced in recent weeks. Warriors forward Kevin Durant was hit with a $25,000 fine last month for telling a fan to “watch the f—ing game and shut the f— up.” Clippers guard Patrick Beverley also received a $25,000 punishment for throwing the ball at a Mavericks fan.
