After much anticipation, the Grateful Dead finally released their 12-CD box set, July 1978: The Complete Recordings. Focusing on five shows held between July 1-8 of 1978, the complete set is packed with hours of prime Grateful Dead goodness.In addition to the full box set, the Dead have shared a separate release of their performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO from July 8th, 1978. This was the second night of a two-night stand, and the band’s second show at Red Rocks ever. The Dead would go on to play the iconic venue for a total of 20 times, setting a long-held sold-out show record that was recently broken by Widespread Panic.Fortunately, the entirety of the July 8th show is also on Spotify, which means we can happily share and listen to the pristine audio from this show. From the opener “Bertha” to the finale, a cover of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London,” which was released that year, this is some of the best Grateful Dead music around. Enjoy! You can also watch Twist & Shout Records owner Paul Epstein talk about the shows, which he attended, below:Thanks for the music, Grateful Dead!
You’re probably familiar with North Carolina’s national forests, state parks, and national parks, but what about the privately-owned conserved lands that are open to the public? The Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy has introduced a hiking challenge to introduce the public to their impressive portfolio of protected lands. Complete eight hikes on lands like Bearwallow Mountain, a bald overlooking Hickory Nut Gorge, and the Foothills Spur Trail in the East Fork Headwaters preserve, and you’ll get a patch and free hiking gear. While most of the properties on the CMLC hiking challenge list are still privately owned, Dupont State Forest is also on the docket. Dupont is now North Carolina’s first state recreational forest, and CMLC was instrumental in bringing the 10,000 acre park into public ownership.See more details about the challenge and the individual hikes here.

Share Image via:eatfishdaydominica.comOrganizers of the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative 4th Annual Eat Fish Day, held in the community of Coulibistrie on Sunday, November 6th, 2011, are describing the event as a major success.The Eat Fish Day which was conceptualized by the St. Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative in 2008 has now become an annual event, gaining much popularity among both locals and visitors.Fisheries Officer, Mr Riviere Sebastian who was involved in coordinating the event told Dominica Vibes News that the aim of the event which is to encourage more persons to eat fish is now being realized.“The idea of the Eat Fish Day basically is to encourage people to eat more fish because we think that people eat a lot more other protein products. And I think fish is a highly nourishable protein product so we are encouraging more people to eat more fish. Secondly, there is a huge economic buzz in various communities because fishermen are able to sell fish, also the vendors who sell fish on that day”. The highlight of Sunday’s event was fish dishes prepared in various styles and forms, patrons therefore had a large variety of dishes to choose from prepared by chefs and experts from Venezuela, Japan, Cuba, Dominica, the French, and the United States of America. Mr Sebastian said that the various embassies who were represented at the event also had the opportunity to showcase a little of their culture on that day.Plans are already being made to host the fifth Eat Fish Day in 2012, although the venue is yet to be determined.“One thing about next year’s event is that it is going to be a much bigger event. We are going to have some special groups from Belgium and France. We’ve already started plans for next year’s event. We haven’t decided the location yet but we normally rotate the communities, but it will be in one of the larger communities”. Every year the event is being held in a different community. The first Eat Fish Day was held in the community of Bioche, the second in Dublanc, the third; Colihaut and this year; Coulibistrie.The planning committee of the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative is expressing their gratitude to the many persons who contributed to the success of the event, especially the sponsors.“I would like to say thanks to everybody, all the patrons who came, and all the embassies especially the l coordinator for the Eat Fish Day event. The embassies in particular did a very good job because every year people look forward to eating fish prepared by various embassies and Mr Paul came in and did a very good job as the President of the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative”.The communities making up the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative include Bioche, Coulibistrie, Colihaut and Dublanc.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!

BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 12) – The seventh time was a charm as Ricky Thornton Jr. put another check on his IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s bucket list Saturday night. Ricky Thornton Jr. checked off another Modified bucket list win when he topped the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. At lest is IMCA President Brett Root, at right Fast Shafts’ Pat Fagen. (Photo by Nick Woolley) He becomes the fifth driver to complete the Super Nationals Modified triple crown, having previously won both the main event and the Harris Auto Racing Race of Champions. Much accomplished at Boone Speedway himself, Aikey took off again and led Thornton and defending race winner Joel Rust into traffic by midway. Aikey rocketed from sixth starting to the front on the initial green flag, following the high side of the track and scored ahead of Mitchell Hunt and Thornton, who’d started 10th, following the only caution of the contest on lap two. Nineteenth starting Jason Wolla, 16th starting Tim Ward and Ethan Dotson rounded out the top five. Now the two-time and defending Late Model champion, he’s already qualified for Sunday’s Modified and Stock Car main events. Feature results – 1. Ricky Thornton Jr., Adel; 2. Jeff Aikey, Cedar Falls; 3. Jason Wolla, Ray, N.D.; 4. Tim Ward, Chandler, Ariz.; 5. Ethan Dotson, Bakersfield, Calif.; 6. Todd Shute, Norwalk; 7. Richie Gustin, Gilman; 8. Chris Elliott, Abilene, Texas; 9. Joel Rust, Grundy Center; 10. Mitchell Hunt, Kent City, Mich.; 11. Kelly Shryock, Fertile; 12. Tom Berry, Des Moines; 13. Jay Noteboom, Hinton; 14. A.J. Ward, Ionia, Mich.; 15. Clay Money, Penokee, Kan.; 16. Zane DeVilbiss, Farmington, N.M.; 17. Brandon Beckendorf, Danube, Minn.; 18. David Goode Jr., Copperas Cove, Texas; 19. Steven Bowers Jr., Topeka, Kan.; 20. Chris Abelson, Sioux City; 21. Tanner Black, Otis, Kan.; 22. Jeff Taylor, Cave City, Ark.; 23. Jeff Larson, Freeport, Ill.; 24. William Gould, Calera, Okla.; 25. Kyle Brown, Madrid; 26. Trever Sloan, Lake Odessa, Mich.; 27. Jesse Sobbing, Malvern; 28. Kelsie Foley, Tucson, Ariz.; 29. Cayden Carter, Oskaloosa. Making his career seventh start in the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational, Thornton chased down Jeff Aikey in traffic, leading the last eight times around the track in taking a fast-paced IMCA Modified feature. Twenty-eight drivers were elected to the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational field, which was filled by the top driver in national point standings and the top driver in 40-point feature wins competing at Super Nationals. The win paid $1,675. Thornton previously posted a race career best third place finish in 2016 and was already a candidate for next year’s Invitational. Thornton cut into Aikey’s lead and finally slipped past when the leader was slowed by a lapped car, then sped to the checkers.
