Pulling from their somewhat older catalog with a rendition of “Middle Mountain Towns”, the group then played Bill Monroe’s “Wheel Hoss”, made all the more complete with Paul Hoffman’s performance of the Macarena—a tune that the group gave a lot of love to recently during Strings & Sol.Greensky Bluegrass Cover Widespread Panic, Do “The Macarena” At Strings & Sol [Video]Shifting back to newer songs, next came a rendition of “Fixin’ To Ruin” featuring Guido Batista on woodblock before a cover of The Dillards’ “Reuben’s Train” and the band’s own “Cold Feet” off 2011’s Handguns. Joshua Davis’ “Last Winter In Copper Country” was up next before the group invited out The Infamous Stringdusters’ Chris Pandolfi and Andy Hall to help them close out the set for renditions of Greensky’s “I’d Probably Kill You”, Johnny Cash’s “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, and The Dusters’ “No More To Leave You Behind”.“I’d Probably Kill You”[Video: Kyle Isaac]“Will The Circle Be Unbroken”[Video: Kyle Isaac]After the sit-in heavy close to set one, Greensky Bluegrass surprised fans once again, opening set two with their debut cover of Dawes’ “Quitter”. After “Living Over”, which featured references to their Johnny Cash tune, “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, from set one, the group performed “Take Cover” off their newest album, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, using the tune as a vehicle for a number of “Jeopardy!” theme teases.To close out set two, the band gave the crowd lots of love during a “The Four” sandwich housing Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved”. The number also contained quotes from Burt Bacharach’s “What The World Needs Now” and The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love”, most likely referencing My Morning Jacket’s love-filled New Year’s Eve celebration just outside of Denver at 1st Bank Center, during which MMJ played the two songs back-to-back.“Could You Be Loved”[Video: Kyle Isaac]For the group’s encore, the band played “Frederico”, though changed the lyrics to reference dobro player Anders Beck, with lyrics like “Anders is the name” and “Who is Anders?”“Frederico”[Video: Kyle Isaac]You can check out the setlist from last night’s performance below.Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 1/12/2018Set One: Windshield (1), Middle Mountain Towns, Wheel Hoss (2), Fixin to Ruin (3), Rueben’s Train, Cold Feet, Last Winter in Copper Country (4), I’d Probably Kill You (5), Will the Circle be Unbroken (5), No More to Leave You Behind (5)Set Two: Quitter, Living Over (6), Take Cover (7)(8), Just to Lie > Eat my Dust, Working on a Building, Worried about the Weather > The Four > Could you be Love (9)(10) > The FourEncore: Frederico (11)(12)(1) – Harpua tease(2) – Macarena dance by Paul(3) – w/ Guido Batista (woodblock) x2(4) – Tarpology tease(5) – w/ Chris Pandolfi and Andy Hall(6) – Will the Circle be unbroken tease(7) – Jeopardy theme tease(8) – Contact tease(9) – what the World Needs Now quotes(10) – All you Need is love quotes(11) – Lyric change “Anders is the name…”(12) – Lyric change “Who is Anders”Check out the full gallery from photography Bill McAlaine below.center_img Greensky Bluegrass | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 1/12/2018 | Photos by Bill McAlainelast_img read more

NCUA adopts annual meeting, board meeting flexibility for FCUs

first_imgThis is placeholder text continue reading » This post is currently collecting data… A few weeks ago, we blogged about holding virtual meetings into 2021 and the limitations of guidance issued by NCUA back in March 2020 with regard to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many federal credit unions (FCUs) have asked about holding virtual meetings next year, and whether NCUA has provided any flexibility for the requirement that at least one meeting of a FCU’s board be held in person.Specifically, while the March guidance allowed FCUs to adopt a bylaw provision that would allow the annual in person meeting to be held virtually under certain emergency situations, four requirements must be met for that amendment to be permissible to use. One of these requirements was that “NCUA has issued general or specific guidance notifying the credit union that it is appropriate to invoke this bylaw provision.” However, NCUA had only indicated the agency thought this was appropriate though December 31, 2020. FCUs that usually hold their annual meetings in the early parts of 2021 were already thinking ahead to how to conduct these meetings safely, especially since the FCU bylaws require that members be provided notice at least 30 but no more than 75 days’ before the meeting.Meanwhile, the FCU bylaws require that at least one board meeting be held in person, although if a quorum is present, the remaining board members can participate by audio or video teleconference. Given the continued spread of COVID-19 in many communities, many FCUs continued to have concerns about holding these meetings in person.center_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Gov. Wolf: More Than $2 Million in Grants for Employment Services for Individuals with Opioid Use Disorder

first_img Economy, Press Release, Substance Use Disorder Governor Tom Wolf announced today that the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) is awarding more than $2 million in federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) grants to provide employment support services for individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD).The grants are part of the $55.9 million SAMSHA grant secured by the Wolf Administration to bolster the state’s response to the prescription opioid and heroin epidemic.“We have not lost focus on the continuing opioid crisis in Pennsylvania,” Gov. Wolf said. “And now more than ever, employment services are vital to help people struggling during the pandemic with the loss of a job or need to find employment. These grants will help those with substance use disorder have a better chance at recovery by helping to access employment.”“Just like having access to recovery supports and stable housing, employment is a critical component of a person’s sustained recovery,” said DDAP Secretary Jennifer Smith. “These grantees have support programs to equip people with necessary tools to find jobs and, as equally important in today’s job market, partnerships with employers to hire people in recovery. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this funding has on people and workplaces across the commonwealth.”The funding will be directed to 14 organizations commonwealth-wide through grant agreements up to $200,000. Awardees will provide a wide variety of services including vocational assessments, resume writing, interviewing skills, job placement, and transportation assistance related to employment. Additionally, each awardee has identified one employer partner who is committed to hiring individuals in recovery from OUD.
