Flower Show exhibits offer advice on protecting watershed
Elsewhere, other exhibitors offered additional advice. An installation made by environmental design students at Temple University's Ambler campus focused on the Schuylkill River, highlighting its chronological journey from marshland to coal shipping to lock system to the present."Most people don't know the Schuylkill River is actually tidal," said Ciara Vellers, a junior at Temple and landscape architecture major. "It's hidden within the city, there's concrete walls on all sides."Villers urged Delaware Valley residents to preserve forestland in order to limit erosion and sedimentation from polluting the watershed, to redouble their efforts not to litter, and to use native plants that promote healthy soil, which also protects drinking water.An exhibit titled "The Backyard" provides additional do-it-yourself conservation tips, including "check dams" that slow the speed of stormwater runoff and native plant ideas to soak up rain. A "make and take" workshop also invites guests to create a mini-water garden or succulent planter to take home and put into action.Feeley said the flower show's focus on conservation culminated Wednesday with the first-ever Philadelphia Water Summit, an all-day conference bringing together environmental experts and industry leaders to discuss water issues and solutions. Mary Ellen Weber, a NASA astronaut, delivered a keynote address on the search for water in space."When they go out looking for life on another planet, what they're really looking for is water," Feeley explained.But the show isn't all education, Feeley said, noting its bread and butter is still beautiful horticultural displays from florists and designers throughout the mid-Atlantic region.Among them is Langhorne's Flowers by David, a florist shop in its 29th year exhibiting at the show. Husband and wife co-owners David and Robin Heller sat Tuesday by their display, which has water features inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater" home in southwest Pennsylvania, sprinkled with pops of colorful floral arrangements."We had been to Fallingwater a few years back and had been very impressed by it," Robin Heller said. "We like the movement and the different experience (flowing water) adds to static display."Her husband added that after nearly three decades exhibiting, he's learned exactly how to design a display."I realize I have about one minute of someone's attention," he said. "I try to design something that is a visual grab for that minute of time ... Fun, simple. Something they can get the idea, smile and take a picture."... (Bucks County Courier Times)Jun 22, 2017

30 Questions in 30 Days: Most picks in 2016?
Janoris Jenkins. Usually a safety is a safe (no pun intended) bet to lead a team in interceptions, but this year I like Jenkins. He is a gambler and is an expert at anticipating where a quarterback is going with the ball due to superior film study and instincts. In practice this spring he has played the ball in the air exceptionally well, and I think we’ll see a lot of big time plays from him in the fall.DAN SALOMONE: Take your pick between Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins, two of the biggest play-making corners in the game. They both had five over the last two seasons, but I’m going with the newcomer Jenkins who will be looking to make his mark with the Giants. He was the MVP of spring and we saw why he was one of the most coveted free agents on the market this year. Whether he leads the team in picks or DRC does, we’ll see. But what we do know is that when they get the ball in their hands, they can take it to the house. They have 11 interception return touchdowns between them.>> VIEW GIANTS TRAINING CAMP SCHEDULELANCE MEDOW: In three of the last four seasons a safety has led the team in interceptions and I think this year’s third round pick Darian Thompson will continue that trend. He only set a Mountain West Conference record with 19 career interceptions at Boise State and once again showed his knack for finding the football during OTAs and minicamp. With that defensive line playing in front of him, it will only help Thompson’s cause to lead the team in interceptions.Question 15. Who will lead the Giants in tackles this season?JOHN SCHMEELK: Landon Collins, and it won’t be very close. (Giants.com (blog))Jun 22, 2016

Well liked beginner GOOD LOOKING LEO, trained by Mark Frostad, worked hard to win his debut by inches over the tough luck Gibbons Gambler in this $25,000 maiden claiming race. By Leonnatus Anteas, this is a 4yo beginner who was ridden by Sheena Ryan. Bred by Colebrook Farms, the colt is owned by a company of numbers (1200181)
race 6 – Refund on DIBS who was held at the start of this $20,00 claiming race and the winner was the big fave TIMBERLINE, a white faced filly well ridden by Sheena Ryan. By Old Forester, the Rachel Halden trainee is a homebred for Chris Harris.
race 7 – GREAT START, well named for trainer Nick Nosowenko as he is indeed off to a great strat. This gal was dropping fom 40,000 to 20,00 claiming for her 2nd start since last summer and she won big under a hot Alan Garcia. Michelle Newell owns the 4yo filly by Jump Start.
race 8 FRENCH QUARTER was the 2nd winner for Gerry Olguin as that rider took over from a litany of different riders who have been on this Norsemen.John Mattine gelding. The Florida bred tracked the rapid pace of Bear No Joke, took over turning for home and held off Cumming Road in 1:10.62 – a 94 Beyer Figure.
race 9 – LORD OF GREATNESS, well named and a 10-year-old entire horse, was claimed away from his long time trainer Robert Tiller and the Entourage Stakes in May 2015 for $20,00. He won for the 3rd time since changing barns when he took a $6,000 claiming race on Friday for his 18th career win. Jesse Campbell rode the old timer for Peter and Willie Armata. It was a tough race for the old guy but he looks great and he is closing in on $600,000 in career earnings.
The best news came after the race when it was announced that Robert Tiller had claimed the horse for $6,000.
FIRST FRANKEL IS FABULOUS…but what about this photo? Wow!
Cunco (city in Chile), the first offspring of the mighty Frankel’s to race, got his sire off to the perfect start when coming from behind to win a six furlong maiden at Newbury this afternoon.
Trained by John Gosden, Cunco was settled behind runners by Robert Havlin before quickening well inside the final furlong to get up near the line. The Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot could be on the agenda for the Clarehaven inmate now.
Owned and bred by Don Alberta Stable, Cunco did just his sire did – he won his debut on a Friday the 13th!
GETTY IMAGES – JULIAN HERBERT captured this image of CUNCO before his debut – watch your toes!! This is such an amazing photo from all aspects that I had to borrow it – congrats Julian, could be an award winner
