STS9 Covers The Grateful Dead At The Fillmore In San Francisco

first_imgSTS9 closed out a wildly successful fall tour last night, wrapping things up at the famed Fillmore venue in San Francisco, CA. The Fillmore has played host to countless legendary performances over the years, something of which STS9 was keenly aware when they stepped into the building.Not wasting any time, the band jammed into “Monkey Music” for the second song of their first set. From there, the group worked in a cover of the Grateful Dead classic, “Dark Star”, before jamming back into “Monkey Music” to keep the show going. The clear nod to the Grateful Dead certainly stemmed from the location of the performance, as the Dead emerged from the Bay Area to revolutionize the music world.Check out a few video clips from the performance below, as well as the full setlist from Church of STS9.

Governor Wolf Encourages Pennsylvanians to Use Online Voter Registration as Primary Deadline Approaches

first_img Government That Works,  Press Release,  Voting & Elections Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of State Pedro A. Cortés today reminded Pennsylvanians that Monday, April 17, is the deadline to register to vote in the May primary election. Citizens are reminded of the availability of Online Voter Registration (OVR) as a convenient option to register.“Voting is one of our most fundamental rights as citizens,” said Governor Wolf. “Our secure online voter registration, which has been used by more than 930,000 Pennsylvanians, assists in reducing barriers for participation in the electoral process while also reducing costs for county governments.”On May 16, primary voters who are registered as Republican or Democrat will choose the two parties’ nominees for seats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Superior Court, Commonwealth Court, the Common Pleas Courts in each county, and Philadelphia Municipal Court.Also on the party ballots will be a wide variety of county, school board, and local seats such as mayor, city or borough council member, township commissioner or supervisor, magisterial district judges, and precinct election officials.Sec. Cortés encouraged eligible citizens to make use of the state’s OVR site, whether they are registering for the first time or updating an existing registration with a change of name, address or party affiliation. As of today, 932,438 users have utilized the OVR application site.“OVR makes registering or updating an existing registration more convenient, secure and accurate than using a traditional paper form,” Secretary Cortés said. “The OVR system ensures that applications are complete when submitted, so there is much less chance for error.”Even applicants who do not have a driver’s license or PennDOT ID card may complete their registration online, thanks to a feature that allows users to easily upload a digital copy of their signature.Individuals wishing to register to vote in the May 16 primary must be:A citizen of the United States for at least one month before the primary.A resident of Pennsylvania and the election district in which the individual desires to register and vote for at least 30 days before the primary.At least 18 years of age on or before the date of the primary.In addition to using the OVR site, eligible voters can register by mail or apply in person at a county voter registration office, county assistance offices, Women, Infants & Children (WIC) program offices, PennDOT photo and drivers license centers, Armed Forces recruitment centers, county clerk of orphans’ courts or marriage license offices, area agencies on aging, county mental health and intellectual disabilities offices, student disability services offices of the State System of Higher Education, offices of special education in high schools, and Americans with Disabilities Act-mandated complementary paratransit providers.Applications for new registration, change of address or change in party affiliation must be postmarked or received in county voter registration offices by April 17.Pennsylvania law requires a closed primary, meaning only voters registered as Democrats or Republicans will select nominees to represent their party in the November 7 general election.The Department of State’s website, votesPA.com, available in English or Spanish, offers printable voter registration applications, a polling place locator and county boards of elections contact information.  It also includes tips for first-time voters and members of the military.In addition, voters can familiarize themselves with the voting system they will use in their home county on Election Day.For more information on voter registration, call the Department of State’s toll-free hotline at 1-877-VOTESPA (1-877-868-3772) or visit votesPA.com.

Alpena Public Schools Keeping the ‘Ready, Set’ Programs

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisIn part 2 of the Alpena Public Schools meeting the Board of Education revealed some key topics including programs that would be staying, awards, and budgets.There was a lot to discuss during the Board of Education meeting held on Tuesday, and that’s why we have a part two. Other topics discussed during the meeting included programs like the ‘Ready, Set, Program.”APS Superintendent Dr. John VanWagoner said the ‘Ready, Set, Programs’ including swim, create, jump, and skate will stay but there will be changes due to some issues.“Some of our school, and teacher concerns were the transportation, but we wanted to make sure that it was kept. ‘Ready, Set, Swim’ was one of the key ones that we wanted to keep. We’re continuing ‘Ready, Set, Swim’ for our second graders. We’re also going to continue, ‘Ready, Set Jump,’ and our ‘Ready, Set, Skate.’ Those will actually be one time,” Dr. John VanWagoner said.Another program that will benefit Alpena schools is adding the ‘DK’ Program to more elementary schools.The program helps in the first year of a two-year kindergarten program learn target skills including letter sounds, writing their name, identifying objects like colors and shapes.Director of CTE and Early College, Joyce McCoy said a form would be handed out soon for parents to decide to put their child in the ‘DK’ Program.“We’re starting kindergarten registration in the next couple of weeks. You can see on both sides, but a child going in the dk is a parent’s choice. We can recommend it, but in the in it’s a parent’s choice. We’re going to talk to them about this 3rd grade-reading program, and what this might mean. We find it to be less stressful for a student to be in ‘DK’ then to get held back in the third grade. Research shows that holding a student back in the 3rd grade is the beginning of a not so good school career down the line,” McCoy said.Other topics included the APS budget.The board hopes to add more security cameras, books, indoors and outdoors wireless access points, upgrade phones, and other network switches, add chrome books, and more desktops.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Public Schools, APS, Ready Set ProgramsContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena Community College Help Raise Funds for the Huron Humane SocietyNext Early College Students Set to Graduate in Maylast_img read more
