New FEI CSI 5* Added to the 2021 Calendar in West Virginia

first_img SIGN UP A new event at a new show jumping venue ‒ the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV ‒ will be the site of an FEI CSI 5* and CSI 2* on October 13-17, 2021.The ArenaMend Classic will take place at the spectacular five-star Greenbrier Resort, which until last year hosted a major tournament on the PGA golf tour. With stunning views of the Allegheny mountain range, the vision for this horse show with a limited number of competitors (50 5* riders and 60 2* riders) is to offer a ‘destination weekend’ experience for the riders and their families (it is unlikely at this point that large crowds would be allowed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic). Alan Wade of Ireland will be handling the course designing duties. Livestreaming will be offered so viewers all over North America can watch the high-performance international action.Organizer Dan Carr, owner of ArenaMend, a sustainable organic footing company, and the former CEO of the now-defunct Palm Beach Masters Series, hopes to combine world-class show jumping with the resort’s wide array of sporting activities ‒ from trail riding, falconry, kayaking, fishing, mountain biking and even glass-blowing.The ArenaMend Classic joins 10 other FEI CSI5* shows on the USEF calendar and will offer prize money of $711,200. More details will be published as they become available. Subscribe to the Horse Sport newsletter and get an exclusive bonus digital edition!

EXCLUSIVE: Listen To BIG Something’s Slinky & Haunting New Song, “Smoke Signal”

first_imgBIG Something is currently gearing up for the release of their fifth full-length studio album, The Otherside, which is due out on April 20th and serves as a follow-up to the band’s well-received record, 2017’s Tumbleweed. If you haven’t heard of the six-piece powerhouse jam act out of Burlington, North Carolina, they’re certainly one to keep your eye on. In addition to being tapped as support for the likes of Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, The B52s, and others, BIG Something continues to climb festival lineups and curate stronger and stronger lineups for their own festival, The BIG What?Composed of Nick MacDaniels (Guitar, Vocals), Doug Marshall (Bass), Josh Kagel (Keys, Trumpet), Casey Cranford (Sax, EWI), Jesse Hensley (Lead Guitar), and Ben Vinograd (Drums), the six-piece ensemble offers up an infectious sound that draws on rock, pop, funk, and more. With roots in improvisation, BIG Something’s live shows take the group’s extensive catalog and transform it, stretching and segueing in between tunes in an innovative way that will impress even the stodgiest and most traditional of jam band fans. Today, BIG Something debuts a brand-new tune, “Smoke Signal”, off the upcoming The Otherside. Sitting squarely in the center of the eight-song album, “Smoke Signal” stands out for its slinky and laidback feel. At points, the song is haunting, playing off the song’s mellow groove and sometimes unsettling lyrics, which are a wonderful offering from MacDaniels. A saxophone solo from Cranford is another highlight of the tune, solidifying the smokey jazz-club imagery the tone of the song invites. As “Smoke Signal” continues, it builds to a shred-heavy peak featuring Hensley before the song ends with a reverb-heavy decrescendo.Drummer Ben Vinograd had this to say about the song:You can listen to BIG Something’s “Smoke Signal” below. If you like what you hear, you can snag The Otherside on April 20th via the band’s website here.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Upcoming BIG Something Tour Dates: 3/27 – Durango, CO @ The Animas City Theatre3/28 – Frisco, CO @ The Barkley Ballroom3/29 – Denver CO @ Bluebird Theater3/31 – Teton Village, WY @ Village Commons4/3 – Bozeman MT @ The Eagles Ballroom4/4 – Missoula MT @ Top Hat Lounge4/5 – Sandpoint ID @ The Hive4/6 – Sandpoint ID @ The Hive4/7 – Seattle WA @ Tractor Tavern4/10 – Boise ID @ Neurolux4/11 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Elevate4/13 – Steamboat Springs, CO @ Schmiggity’s4/14 – Fort Collins CO @ Hodi’s Half Note4/18 – Montgomery, AL @ Capri Theatre4/19-21 – Live Oak, FL @ The Wanee Festival4/27 – Wilmington, NC @ The Big What?

The power of introverts

first_imgNot everyone craves the professional spotlight. Some of us would rather stay in the background, doing good work and making strong contributions. Thankfully for introverts, there are many different ways to be heard and recognized to enrich your career—but it’s still on you to find the right way to get noticed.Defining an IntrovertPeter Vogt, publisher of Introvert Insights, and author of The Introvert Manifesto, Moorhead, Minnesota, says it can be challenging to find a widely accepted definition of “introvert.” “It’s better, and more accurate, to refer to yourself (or whomever) as someone ‘with a tendency toward introversion’ much of the time. The term ‘introvert’ is shorthand for something that’s a mouthful to say in everyday life.”It’s too easy to think of all introverts are the same, he notes, when they’re not. Rather, people who see themselves as introverts may share certain tendencies most of the time, defined in two ways: continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Not everyone has Christmas Day off, state trooper shares his thoughts

first_imgDespite having to work, Ward says it’s important to remember that on days like Christmas, those you work with are your family too. He says that if you’re working with your co-workers, everyone is experiencing the same thing. “It’s tough,” he said. “It takes a special person to work holidays and be away from your family.” New York State Trooper Ronald Ward says he tries to make the most of the time away from family when he works. Today was his first Christmas Shift with State Police. He says, “Everyone is just one big family” and “everybody is always there for eachother.” Trooper Ward says he makes up for it by being with his family before he goes to bed or the day before.center_img (WBNG) — Although it may be Christmas, many people must work instead of spending time with their families. He says he spent the morning with his three daughters and opening presents and eating breakfast with them. Trooper Ward also says he stays awake working Christmas thanks to a caramel macchiatto.last_img read more

$2,000 fine for possession of 332 grams marijuana

first_img Share LocalNews $2,000 fine for possession of 332 grams marijuana by: – May 22, 2012 Sharing is caring! Share 27 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Tweet Photo credit: cannabis-pictures.comThirty one year old Stocky Antoine of Petite Savanne has been given three months to pay a $2,000 fine for possession of 332 grams of marijuana.Antoine who was charged with possession of 332 grams of marijuana pleaded guilty when he appeared before magistrate Candia Carette-George on Tuesday.According to police prosecutor Claude Weekes, members of the Drug Squad Unit of the Police Force executed a warrant on the defendant’s premises on May 21st in Petite Savanne.Although he was not present at the time, they were invited by the defendants’ mother to search the premises.During their search of a room in the basement of the premises the officers noticed three cuttings of marijuana hanging on a nail above the defendants’ bed. They continued their search outside the house and found a quantity of cured cannabis on a path leading away from the house.Antoine later returned, and was met by the police who inquired about the alleged marijuana found, to which he responded “officer the weed all you get in the place and outside is mine. It fell outside when I was running with it when I saw all you coming there”.In mitigating on her client’s behalf Gina Dyer-Munroe informed the court that her client was a “first time offender, he was extremely remorseful and he was at the mercy of the court”.She pleaded with the magistrate to consider that her client lived with this mother and sisters and that he “assists his mother with her upkeep”.She further implored the court to temper justice with mercy and not impose a custodial sentence on her client who was not gainfully employed and “deserves a second chance”.Before handing judgment, Carette George asked the defendant why he was not gainfully employed.He replied; “I plant some things on my land but they very young. Whenever the sea is calm I do a little fishing to make a little money to buy a shoe or something”.Magistrate Carette-George said because Antoine had “not wasted the courts time, was a first time offender and pleaded guilty she would impose a $2,000 fine to be paid by the 30th of September, 2012.If he fails to pay the fine on or before the ordered date, he will have to serve four (4) months imprisonment at the state’s prison.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Ryerson races to first win of season at Boone

first_imgChad Ryerson made his first visit to victory lane this season at Boone Speedway following the Saturday Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature. (Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photog­raphy) By Joyce Eisele The final race of the night was the 20-lap IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature.  This one saw lots of action at the front of the pack as five cars went at it. Troy Jerovetz had the lead by lap two after starting eighth. Meanwhile, working through the pack was a trio of Smiths and a Schmidt. Logue finished a close second with Smith in third. Twelfth place starter Adam Birck finished fourth and Robert Moore was fifth. This Saturday, July 11 is another regular weekly program with racing in all classes along with a King of the Hill for the Stock Cars.  New times are pits at 4:30 p.m., grandstands 5 p.m., hot laps 6:15 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. Another first time winner came out of the IMCA Modifieds as Randy Havlik took the checkers in just his second night in the car. Havlik overtook Joel Bushore to put win number one in the books. Bushore held the runner-up position while Jake McBirnie took third. The race went cau­tion-free. Ryerson started sixth and took over the top spot at lap nine but had a lot of close company com­ing at him hot and heavy in the likes of Doug Smith and Johnathon Logue.  Smith and Logue tus­sled back and forth for the second position and Ryerson was content to let them do so as he raced to the win, his first at Boone this season.  BOONE, Iowa (July 4) – It was a happy Chad Ryerson in his post race interview after winning the 18-lap Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod contest Saturday at Boone Speedway.
