The 2016 installment of “Fall Ball” has come to a close, after three nights of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead madness. The weekend saw the debut of an acoustic “Terrapin Suite” in the bowling lanes, special guest appearances from John Mayer, Chris Harford, and plenty of song debuts, as Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and Scott Metzger once again showed their hometown crowd exactly why they are such a revered live band. Returning to their birthplace always brings a sense of comfortability for the Grateful Dead enthusiasts, but also an opportunity to expand on their already-adored interpretations.Thank to taper quinfolk, you can enjoy all three nights of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead in the full show audios below:10/6/16:Set 1:Jam ->Good Morning Little School Girl @ (SM) ->Birdsong (TH) ->St. Stephen # (All) ->Fortune Teller $ (All) ->Morning Dew Jam % ->I Know You Rider ^ -> (All)Jack Straw & (SM/TH)So Long Jerry ++ (DD)Acoustic Mini Set (On the Bowling Lanes Stage)Candyman * (TH)The Race Is On + (SM)It Must Have Been The Roses * (TH)Uncle John’s Band * (All)Set II:Silvio @@ (SM) ->Wharf Rat ## (TH/All) ->Loser $$(TH) ->King Bee %% (SM)Unbroken Chain ^^ (JR) >Here Comes Sunshine (TH) ->Playing In The Band && (SM)E: Marco Solo ** ->Werewolves Of London (MB)10/7/16:Set I:Jam ->Tough Mama>Good Lovin’Dark Star>Greatest Story Ever ToldSo Many RoadsCassidyAcoustic:Jack-A-RoeDark HollowSet II With John Mayer:Cryptical Enevelopment>The Other One>Cryptical Enevelopment>New Speedway BoogieKing Solomon’s MarblesLet It GrowTouch Of GrayQuinn The Eskimo10/8/16Set 1:Blues for Allah jam >Eyes of the World >Minglewood BluesThe Wheel >Ramble On RoseMama TriedMorning DewSet II:Crazy Fingers >Truckin >OtherOne>TruckinMagnificent Sanctuary Band >Help on the Way >Slipknot >Estimated >Hippie Dream*E:He Was A Friend of Mine**Not Fade Away* w/ Chris Harford** Acoustic and quietFor fans of Joe Russo and Scott Metzger, be sure to catch them with Robert Walter and Andy Hess at this year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive.

9 Mar 2012 National college title for Dulcie Sverdloff Essex teenager Dulcie Sverdloff has won the British Colleges Sport national championship at her first attempt. Essex teenager Dulcie Sverdloff has won the British Colleges Sport national championship at her first attempt. The 17-year-old from Garon Park claimed the women’s title in the final at the National Golf Centre at Woodhall Spa, and also won the companion open event which was held simultaneously. Dulcie, who is studying for A levels at Seevic College in Essex, shot one-over par 74 on the Hotchkin course, followed by one-under 71 on the Bracken. She finished two clear of Samantha Meese (Enville/King Edward VI Stourbridge), while Rebecca Horner (Woodham/QE Darlington) was third. “It’s nice to shoot a couple of good scores and give myself a quick start to the season,” said Dulcie, who is enjoying the confidence boost as she prepares for the 2012 national amateur circuit. Dulcie reckons the key to her success was leaving her driver in the bag in favour of her three-wood, avoiding all but two of the many bunkers on the Hotchkin course, and producing a tip-top short game. She was leading by two after the first round and produced a strong finish to secure the title, holing from 30ft on the 16th for a par and finishing with an up-and-down for birdie on the last. Dulcie is an Essex county player and was the 2010 winner of the Abraham Trophy, contested by England’s most improved girl golfers. She carried on improving last season with a string of good performances and plans to test herself further in 2012. Full scores: www.bcsport.org Image credit: leaderboardphotography.com

Facebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Thurston County Would you like to help the local food banks gear up for summer, while having some fun at work? Start a food drive challenge!A large number of children in Thurston County receive subsidized breakfast and lunch at school. During the summer, they are more likely to go hungry. Area food banks encourage donations of peanut butter to help families while school is out—it doesn’t need refrigeration, it’s easy for kids to make sandwiches with, and it provides a good source of protein. And, of course, jam and jelly go with peanut butter.To help out, the Thurston County Public Works Department will be holding an internal Peanut Butter Challenge from April 6 to May 15. The good-natured competition will determine which division within the department can collect the most peanut butter and jam. The winning team will receive bragging rights, a root beer float party and a fun trophy.A similar effort in 2010 netted over 1,000 jars, which the Thurston County Food Bank (TCFB) distributed countywide. Public Works Director Ramiro Chavez, who joined the department in last August, is hoping to make the Peanut Butter Challenge an annual springtime food drive event for the department, and encourages other businesses and local governments to hold similar food drives. And it certainly doesn’t have to be just peanut butter—TCFB needs a variety of foods for summer and weekend programs, which include:FORKids school backpack meal program which helps hungry, homeless children. Two days’ worth of kid friendly foods are provided on Fridays at area elementary schools. Summer School Lunch Program, under the umbrella of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, provides sack lunches to children in collaboration with local service providers. Summer Mobile Meal Pilot Program, funded by local donations, provides sack lunches to children living in low-income neighborhoods.TCFB serves 15,000 families annually through a variety of programs. These families include 47,000 individuals, half of which are children. Last year the number of visits increased 20 percent to 284,000. The food bank distributed 6 million pounds of food, which included locally-sourced food and federal food products.So start your own challenge this spring, and share your organization’s efforts on the Facebook pages of the Thurston County Food Bank or Waste Less Food—Thurston Solid Waste. TCFB can provide sample emails and flyers for you to use, as well as collection bins in a variety of sizes. Please contact Fran Potasnik with TCFB at (360) 754-5703 or [email protected]
