Enter the Fair of the Century

The Fair of the Century is coming up April 30 through May 3; yes, earlier than ever. This is the Tehama District Fair’s 100th year of recognizing the resources—plant, animal, and human—of Tehama County. Red Bluff Garden Club has been in existence since 1955, making contributions to the Fair Flower Show since that time. We’ve made some changes over the years. This year we have more new divisions and classes. We have a Wheelbarrow Garden class—open to all adult exhibitors. Juniors have their own in Division 540—for both individuals and groups. Let your imagination go. In Horticulture, adults have Container Plants Grown for Flowers. Don’t you have a African Violet or Orchid in bloom? Container Plants Grown for Foliage. Enter that beautiful potted fern or begonia. And the fun one—Unusual Plants or Containers. Exhibitors, I urge you to start your grooming and cleaning, pinching and pruning now. Scope out your garden for Arboreal Branches—this is a pretty easy division as far as prep is concerned. Cut a 30-inch branch from a tree or shrub to bring. And there is a $25 cash award for winning…

Warriors on TV: So just how bad are those ratings?

For five glorious years, the Warriors not only dominated the NBA, they ruled the league’s television ratings on the local and national level. Now, not so much. Hobbled by injuries to their biggest stars — Steph Curry and Klay Thompson — and sadddled with the NBA’s worst record (12-43), the Warriors are clearly no longer must-see TV. The league has pulled several of the team’s games off the national prime-time schedule and Golden State’s ratings on NBC Sports Bay Area have taken a dramatic plunge. How dramatic? According to a report released this week by Sports Business Journal, the numbers for Warriors telecasts on the regional cable network are down a stunning 66 percent compared to last season. That’s the second biggest drop-off among NBA teams. In fact, only the Denver Nuggets had a bigger local ratings decline — 72 percent. But that situation is largely the result of a bitter standoff between the regional network, Altitude TV, and the state’s largest service provider, Comcast, which has left the Nuggets off air to most of Denver television viewers. Unlike the Warriors, the Nuggets are riding…

First the A’s audio broadcasts went digital-only; Now the Sharks are giving it a try

SAN JOSE — First the A’s announced the audio broadcasts for all of their games this season will only be available online. Now this week, the Sharks are experimenting with broadcasting audio for their next four games on its mobile app and not on terrestrial radio. Dubbed the “Sharks Digital Roadtrip,” audio broadcasts of the next four Sharks games will be on the team’s Sharks+SAP Center app. The broadcasts will include a one-hour pregame show and interactive features. The games from Feb. 20-25 will not be available on 98.5 KFOX, the Sharks’ radio network flagship since the 2000-01 NHL season. Fans wanting to listen to the broadcasts from the app in their car’s audio system will need to utilize Bluetooth technology or an auxiliary plug-in. The Sharks play New Jersey on Thursday and the New York Rangers on Saturday, with both games starting at 4 p.m. (PT). The team then plays the New York Islanders on Sunday at 2 p.m. and finish the road trip Tuesday against Philadelphia at 4 p.m. All four road games will still be televised on NBC Sports California.

49ers’ 2019 draft class named top in NFL as Raiders rookie claps back

The NFL draft class of 2019 is no longer a rookie class anymore. That doesn’t mean NFL.com can’t parse their ranks as we wait breathlessly for the scouting combine. Fans of the San Francisco 49ers will not be surprised. Their rookie class was given an A, the highest grade in the survey. “This latest draft class sings,” wrote NFL.com’s Gennaro Filice. “It’s a group that played an absolutely crucial role in San Francisco’s astounding turnaround from 4-12 bottom feeder to 13-3 NFC champion. Consequently, it’s a group that played an absolutely crucial role in (GM John) Lynch’s Pro Football Writers Association Executive of the Year honor. “Let’s start at the top, with the game-wrecking force of nature acquired at No. 2 overall. (Nick) Bosa ran away with Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. And while the ageless Richard Sherman churned out another stellar campaign and Arik Armstead broke out in a major way, there’s a solid argument to be made that Bosa was the best player on this dominant defense. Including the playoffs.” But Bosa was just one of five draftees to make solid contributions,…
