After months of anticipation, Dead & Company‘s 2017 tour is finally upon us! Last night, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti rolled into Las Vegas to kick off their 20-date summer run. The band came in hot in their first performance since 7/30/16 at Shoreline Amphitheatre, opening the show with classic cuts including “The Music Never Stopped,” “Dire Wolf,” and “Jack Straw,” each highlighted by poignantly beautiful guitar interplay by Mayer and Weir. You can watch pro-shot footage of the show’s first three songs (“The Music Never Stopped,” “Dire Wolf,” and “Jack Straw”) via nugs.tv, which the band streamed live on their Facebook page:Set one continued the string of jukebox Dead sing-alongs, including “Loser,” “Friend of the Devil,” “Brown Eyed Women,” and “Bird Song.” Set two kicked off with a joyous “Playin’ In The Band,” which eventually bled into “Deal,” sung with sly charisma by Mayer. A classic “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider” pairing came next, and eventually dissipated into “Drums/Space,” giving Mickey and Billy their first crack of the year at their patented percussion odysseys. Out of the “Space” arose “The Other One,” as Bobby fearlessly led the band on vocals through the remainder of the set, including “Black Peter” and the obligatory “One More Saturday Night.”However, as we all know, yesterday wasn’t just another Saturday night. Earlier that evening, the music world received the devastating news that Gregg Allman, the leader of the iconic Allman Brothers Band and widely respected rock and roll elder statesman, had passed away. In a moving tribute to the fallen legend (and Burbridge’s former Allmans bandmate), Dead & Company delivered a delicate rendition of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” the Bob Dylan classic performed by the Allmans, the Dead, and just about everyone else. As the band played, images of Gregg were projected behind the stage, blending with visuals of fluffy white clouds to give Allman’s an angelic aura. After the touching tribute, the band slipped back into a “Playin’ in the Band” reprise to cap an excellent tour opener.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit Share Recording Of Collaborative “Wooden Ships” With David Crosby [Listen]
Back in July, the 59th-annual Newport Folk Festival returned, taking over Newport, Rhode Island’s Fort Adams State Park. The festival has long stood out as one of the premier music events in the Northeast, consistently curating one of the most expansive and highly anticipated lineups of the summer. Friday’s opening day lineup was star-studded, as Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit headed the bill along with Sturgill Simpson, Lucius, Margo Price, St. Vincent, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, The Wood Brothers, Amanda Shires, and others.During Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit’s set, which closed down the Fort Stage on Friday evening, the band had a special surprise collaboration planned. While the beginning of the group’s set drew heavily on newer material off 2017’s The Nashville Sound as well as 2013’s Southeastern, toward the end of the performance Isbell and friends invited out the legendary folk and rock icon David Crosby to join them. Crosby first emerged for a rendition of his own “Wooden Ships”, which was featured on Crosby, Stills & Nash‘s self-titled 1969 release, and written by Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Jefferson Airplane’s Paul Kantner.Crosby stayed on stage, helping Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit in a rendition of the iconic fan-favorite 1970 Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young track “Ohio”, a protest song penned by Neil Young following the Kent State shootings on May 4th, 1970. At Isbell’s insistence, the crowd sang along for the ending choruses of the song.Listen to David Crosby’s collaboration with Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit on “Wooden Ships” below:Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit – Newport Folk Festival – 7/27/2018[H/T Jambase]

Despite a full range of opportunities, the first half went 0-0. All of that changed just 1:53 into the second half when Neivel finally put one past ESM goalkeeper Isabelle Chavoustie.Less than 10 minutes later, the Bees were attacking again and Mimas, taking a pass from Mackenzie Miller, earned the insurance goal. B’ville’s defense did the rest as Hannah Johnson, in place of injured Jenna Boutilier, stopped all five shots she faced.A night later, B’ville visited West Genesee, a team it beat 3-1 earlier this season at home. Bad weather moved the game from WG’s usual grass stadium to the artificial surface at Mike Messere Field. And it didn’t prove easy here, either, for the Bees, but again it won, 2-1, partially because it found offense from an unlikely source before the rain wore everyone down.Less than five minutes into the game, B’ville went in front on Anya Putszai’s goal, assisted by defender Gwyneth Madden, but WG’s defense kept the Bees quiet for the rest of the half.Deep into the second half, the margin was still one when, with 14;34 left, Mimas converted. That was needed, since the Wildcats answered less with 11:57 to play on Eva Poissant’s unassisted goal.Though it had a chance to get to overtime, WG could not quite do so, the Bees’ defense holding them to four shots overall as, in the net, Wildcats goalies Liz Croft and Caitlin Mills combined for 11 saves.Back home Friday night to finish the regular season against Cicero-North Syracuse, B’ville honored its senior class, and then went out and shut out the Northstars 3-0.Having already defeated C-NS 4-1 in September, the Bees quickly took charge when Pia Cavallaro, one of those seniors, assisted on an early goal by Mimas. Then, 5:38 before halftime, two more seniors made it 2-0, Johnson heading home Neivel’s corner kick.In the 51st minute, Cavallaro to provide a perfect feed to Neivel, again a senior combination as Neivel’s goal wrapped up a 14-2 regular season.Six teams advanced to the sectional Class AA playoffs and B’ville, with the no. 2 seed, has a bye straight into the semifinals, as does F-M, the top seed.Those semifinals on Oct. 30 at Central Square will have the Bees against either no. 3 seed West Genesee or no. 6 seed Rome Free Academy, with the Hornets against either Auburn or Cicero-North Syracuse. For eight days, the Baldwinsville girls soccer team had to stew on the first-half barrage Fayetteville-Manlius threw at them on Oct. 7, the 4-1 defeat getting the Hornets even for losing to the Bees a few weeks earlier.A combination of tough practices and much-needed rest for some injured players led to a stretch of three games, two of them 24 hours apart, that would close out the regular season.It all began last Tuesday night, at East Syracuse Minoa, where the state Class AA no. 14-ranked Bees had to be patient before its star duo of Simone Neivel and Hannah Mimas again rescued them in a 2-0 win over the Spartans.

Safety Aaron Henry intercepted quarterback Jon Budmayr in practice Saturday and nearly scored.[/media-credit]If spring football can be used as any sort of barometer for where the Wisconsin Badgers’ personnel stand, one fact stood out as Saturday’s practice came to a close.The offense has a ways to go in catching up to the defense.In a practice with live tackling and situational scrimmaging, Wisconsin’s No. 1 offense started out hot, scoring touchdowns on its first two drives and covering 60 yards on both occasions.Then the defense clamped down.The second-team offense never managed to score a touchdown, and the first-teamers only got one more score when running back James White broke away on a run and took it to the house from 45 yards out.Otherwise, the defense contained the running game and shut down the passing attack.Quarterback CompetitionWith Joe Brennan routinely struggling to lead the No. 2 offense, Jon Budmayr has never been threatened during spring ball as the No. 1 starter.Yet, Budmayr has done little to cement his status as starter heading into the fall with quarterback Curt Phillips returning from injury.Budmayr tossed two more interceptions Saturday – against one touchdown – and missed several open receivers.During two attempts at a red zone drill, the No. 1 offense was unable to put the ball in the end zone, with Budmayr watching three of his passes fall incomplete. He avoided having any passes blocked at the line for the first practice all spring, but still forced too many balls into tight windows.On his first interception, Budmayr failed to look off safety Aaron Henry, who had a chance to return the pick for a touchdown if the coaches hadn’t blown the play dead.Red Zone RespectDefensive coordinator Chris Ash admitted this spring he is trying to instill a sense of swagger into his guys on “D.” If someone makes a big play, he wants them to celebrate it.Never was this more apparent than when the No. 1 defense and offense matched up for a two-minute drill. While the offense moved the ball down to the three-yard line after broken coverage allowed tight end Brian Wozniak to get free for a big gain, the defense clamped down from there.On second down, Budmayr tossed a well-placed fade route to receiver Jeff Duckworth, who managed to get both hands on the ball before being crushed by Devin Smith. The senior cornerback immediately got up after breaking up the pass and stood over Duckworth talking smack.One play later, the defense converged in the middle to keep running back Montee Ball just short of the end zone as time ran out on the two-minute clock. They left the field celebrating and chest bumping.Injury ReportFullback Bradie Ewing and linebacker Kevin Claxton both sat out Saturday, though both supposedly with minor injuries to shoulder and ribs, respectively. … Phillips did not suit up at all for the first time this spring, though that may have been because most of the practice was spent doing live work with few non-contact drills. … Jacob Pedersen got rolled up on the back of his legs and was taken off the field to have his right ankle taped up and iced. He did not return but was able to walk around on his own power.Mental MistakesAfter a season spent building a well-deserved reputation as an offense that didn’t shoot itself in the foot, the Badgers were well out of sorts Saturday.The No. 2 offensive line was hit with at least five holding penalties and at one point false-started two plays in a row.White lost a fumble to start a drive – curiously enough, it was Joel Stave’s one series with the No. 1 offense – and took a lap to pay the price.The little things that made such a big difference for the offense last season held them back Saturday.
Tom Leahy(Updated Sunday) Sumner Newscow report â€” Conway Springs teacher Tom Leahy, who was on leave for two weeks after showing a controversial anti-bullying film, will return to his teaching position Monday, district officials said.In a written statement, officials said he â€œwill be allowed back in the classroom with some safeguards in place to make sure the students in the classroom are okay which is our number one concern.â€Â Superintendent Clay Murphy would not provide details on the safeguards or elaborate on the written release.The one-page statement, sent to Conway Springs parents and media Friday, was issued on behalf of the district and Leahy, Murphy said, and would be â€œour final statements on this issue.â€â€œWe will have no further comment on the topic,â€ it says.Leahy confirmed by phone to the Wichita Eagle Friday that he did not plan to comment further.â€œThe fact is that the vast majority of complaints were about the graphic suicide scene and some of the comments made after the film had ended,â€ the statement said.Leahy said he no longer plans to speak to Conway Springs school board members at their regular meeting Monday night. It was unclear Friday whether board members would address the topic.Thursday, Leahy reversed a previous decision that he would tender his resignation to the Conway Springs School BoardÂ (see story here).Leahy was asked to leave after he showed his eighth-grade history students â€œLove is all you need,â€ a short film that depicts a fictional town in which heterosexual children are bullied by homosexual classmates. The film was shown as a teaching tool about tolerance, Leahy said.Leahy said he showed the film after a history lesson took a disturbing turn. He directed students last month to create their own colonies, like early American settlers, and several students declared that homosexuals would not be allowed in their colonies, Leahy said. Other students created colonies where everyone was welcome, which led to heated debates and hard feelings.He and Superintendent Clay Murphy were scheduled to address the community at a joint news conference on Thursday, but the event was canceled shortly after noon at Leahyâ€™s request, Murphy said.Follow us on Twitter.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 248 weeks ago -8 Vote up Vote down learn more · 248 weeks ago I understand the teacher had the students work on a project about colonies, but how did keeping homosexuals out of them even become an issue? Schools are not the place for social issues such as homosexuality. I think every school should focus more on “reading, writing and arithmetic.” Report Reply 0 replies · active 248 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

JOHNSTON — Governor Kim Reynolds says $3.5 million of the state’s federal pandemic response money will be used to support food banks and other efforts to feed needy Iowans.“Covid-19 has been one of those times when we’ve seen food insecurity skyrocket,” Reynolds said yesterday. “More Iowans than ever have required food assistance.”One million dollars will be used to buy shelf-stable food like rice, oatmeal and pasta in bulk. AmeriCorps volunteers will break it down into consumer-sized packages.“That allows us to purchase the product at bulk prices in large quantifies, outside the normal supply chains, and hedge against future disruptions,” said Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg, who has been leading the state’s Feeding Iowa task force.Another $1 million go to directly to Iowa food banks “to assist with the increased costs and challenges they’re facing with food acquisition during this time and also to cover increased supply costs,” Gregg said. “For example, the shift to pre-boxing the food has created significant additional costs, along with increased sanitation costs during the pandemic.”A million dollars more will be used to help needy Iowans buy fresh produce. The “double up food bucks” program is for Iowans who qualify for food stamps — for the purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers’ markets or grocery stores.“We feel this is a particularly good investment because it both helps Iowans in need,” Gregg said, “and it also helps our specialty crop farmers who tend to sell at farmers’ markets and have experienced disruptions in their businesses as well.”Half a million dollars is set aside to support the slaughter and processing of donated pigs and cattle that would otherwise be euthanized. The “pass the pork” program set up in early May is providing fresh meat to Iowa food banks and food pantries. Local meat lockers are processing the meat and the lieutenant governor says the Iowa State University meat lab is working on the project, too.“We’re also working on solutions to support donations from turkey, egg and dairy producers,” Gregg said.All of these “mini-supply chains” will boost the amount of food that’s available for hungry Iowans, Gregg said.According to the Feeding America organization, there’s been a 63 percent increase in demand at U.S. food banks and food pantries as millions of Americans became unemployed or were furloughed because of the pandemic.
