Widespread Panic Continues To Bring The Heat, Pays Solemn Tribute To Fan Who Fell In The River

first_imgWidespread Panic resumed their Southern conquest with a second night of music at Mud Island Amphitheater in Memphis, Tennessee last night. To many fans, the first night was one of the most intense and tight shows of the year, so when it was with great anticipation that the band shuffled back onstage.A short and sweet “Disco” kicked the night off before John Bell led the audience through a serene stroll with a mellow “Wondering” from 1993’s Everyday. Jimmy Herring mystified through a blazin’ “Papa Johnny Road” from Ball (2003) before Dave Schools trounced a bouncy beat for “Walkin’ (For Your Love)” from their self-titled second album.Putting the pedal to the metal, the band came together nicely for a sizzlin’ “Papa’s Home”. This jam from Everyday has several tempo changes and breakdowns and had the audience stompin’ and dancin’ with a full display of the band’s collective talents. A dirty “Shut Up and Drive” from 2010’s Dirty Side Down segued into a heroic version of “Hatfield”. John Bell was in peak form and nailed the lyrics beautifully before dishing out a rousing rap with all the bells, whistles, and descriptions of “Hatfield’s mama with her two-string ukulele” intact.For only the fourth time since its debut at Panic en la Playa Siete, the band delved into a stirring rendition of “Sundown Betty” before cutting a suave cover of Bloodkin’s “Can’t Get High”. To close the set, the boys aced a frenzied “Action Man” from Don’t Tell the Band (2001), leaving the audience in a stunned stupor as they walked off the stage for setbreak.Upon returning to the stage, the band appropriately delved into a cover of Pops Staples‘ song “Hope in a Hopeless World” from Bombs & Butterflies as a homage to the missing teenager who jumped into the Mississippi River the night prior. Jimmy Herring electrified a cutting version of “Pilgrims”, another from Everyday, before JoJo Hermann took the helm for the beginning of a jam that didn’t relent until the end of the second set. An outstanding psychedelic massacre of J.J. Cale’s “Ride Me High” moved into a heavy and lively “Tie Your Shoes.” With repeating spiraling descents, the entire band came together to casually obliterate this jam.Duane Trucks commandeered the spotlight for a powerful percussive cornucopia before the band returned for the beginning of “Fishwater” with John Bell and Jimmy Herring acting as unstoppable forces. Cody Dickinson from North Mississippi Allstars came out with a washboard to supplement as Dave Schools and JoJo Hermann led the charge on “Big Wooly Mammoth”. The musicians returned from this beloved classic back into “Fishwater” with Cody Dickinson before allowing Sonny Ortiz time to wallop his drum kit with minimum help from Duane Trucks.Widespread Panic w/ Cody Dickinson – “Big Wooly Mammoth” > “Fishwater”[Video: Fred Ramadan]The band returned once more to finish “Fishwater” (this time without Cody Dickinson) before segueing into a raucous and sexy rendition of George Clinton’s “Red Hot Mama”. To conclude the second set and nearly eighty-minute sequence of nonstop jams, the boys hammered home the party-anthem “Chilly Water” complete with a night sky full of flying cups of water.For the encore’s first number, Jimmy Herring led the band through a scorching cover of Murray McLauchlan’s “Honky Red”. Before finishing the evening, John Bell said a few words to make light of last night’s tragic misfortune, “Ladies and gentlemen, this will be the ‘Last Dance’ of the evening. Please take care of each other, watch out for each other so you can live to play another day.” With that, the musicians closed with a cover of Neil Young’s “Last Dance” with a dreamy breakdown and emotionally wrought lyrics.Widespread Panic returns to the stage next on August 24th in Arrington, Virginia for the 6th annual LOCKN’ Festival. Many have speculated about with whom the band will be collaborating, and considering the band played three Neil Young covers this weekend, we can only hope that it is Ol’ Neil himself—or, at the very least, some members of his band, Promise of the Real, who are set to play LOCKN’ the same day as Panic. Until next time, my friends.

Many older cars just have a lap belt, what then? Since the cops can’t see the lap belts but stop them, isn’t that and illegal search? Just more government overreach trying to drum up arrest’s and money.

Talking on the phone? Can we as citizens write them a ticket as well? What gives them the right? A Badge? I never wore seat belt growing up, none of us did. Your more lickly to get injured on highway driving at higher speeds than a little bump in city limits. Laws need to change instead of restrict choices. Report Reply 0 replies · active 222 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down Larry · 222 weeks ago The laws in most state is as follows: What ever the vehicle was equipped with is all that is required. So if it has no seat belts is legal but some states require installation of a lap belt. If is has only a lap belt that is legal and no requirement for shoulder belt. If you do get stopped and have the lap belt on you are good. It is not an illegal search since they don’t have to physically enter the care to check. Most states laws have exempted law enforcement and are allowed to use cellphones well driving for official use only. I don’t care for that, but that is the way it is. The only question I have is that they should click it or ticket it all the time. Everyone should remember that driving is a privilege not a right.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Submitted to Sumner Newscow — Beginning on Monday, May 23, and continuing through Sunday, June 5, drivers can expect increased police presence on Wellington city streets as the Wellington Police Department joins almost 150 other law enforcement agencies in aggressively enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the 2016 Kansas Click It or Ticket campaign.  This activity is supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.  Enforcement will occur around the clock.  Officers will be especially vigilant at night because the likelihood of seatbelt use at night is much lower than during the day and the percentage of unrestrained crash deaths soars much higher at night.Drivers can expect strict enforcement of both the Safety Belt Use Act and the Child Passenger Safety Act.  These acts require that all vehicle occupants must be appropriately restrained.  Law enforcement officers can stop vehicles and issue tickets when they observe front seat occupants, teens in any position, or children under the age of 14, riding without being properly restrained.  Occupants, ages 14 and over, are cited individually.  In the event that a passenger under the age of 14 is observed to be unrestrained the driver will be cited.  The fine for an adult violation is $10 (plus the time out for the traffic stop, during which the driver’s license number will likely be called in to dispatch).  The fine for a youth (14-17) violation is $60 (no court costs), while the driver’s fine for a child (0-13) restraint violation is $60 + a court cost charge of at least $98.Children under the age of four must be correctly secured in an approved child safety seat.  Children, ages four through seven, must be securely belted into an approved booster seat unless taller than 4 feet 9 inches or heavier than 80 pounds, in which case, the booster may be removed and the child belted in without it.  Children, ages eight through 13 must be safety-belted.   In addition, the act prohibits persons under the age of 14 from riding in any part of a vehicle not intended for carrying passengers, such as a pickup bed.  For answers to child safety restraint questions and the location of the nearest safety seat fitting station, or safety seat technician, contact the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Office at 1-800-416-2522, or write [email protected] aim of Click It or Ticket is simple:  to drastically reduce the number of preventable deaths and injuries that occur when unbelted drivers and passengers are involved in traffic crashes.  According to KDOT, fully 57% of those killed in crashes on Kansas roads are not belted in, while 93% of crash occupants who suffer no injuries of any kind are belted in.  So, in general, unrestrained occupants who are involved in a crash have, at most, only about a 7% chance of not suffering some degree of injury.  And all because drivers neglect to ensure that each occupant in their vehicle is properly restrained – an activity that requires only seconds to complete.  While seat belts may not always protect from serious or fatal injury, certainly no other piece of equipment within the vehicle provides more protection.Kansas’ overall adult seat belt compliance rate is 82% and ranges, by county, from 59% to 95%, with occupants in rural counties generally less likely to buckle up than those in urban counties.  According to KDOT, this rural-urban difference in seat belt rates is especially problematic because rural roadway conditions are, in general, less forgiving than those in urban areas and the consequences of driver misjudgment – such as unsafe speed and failure to buckle up – are likely to be more severe.  Picture, for example, two lanes, narrow shoulders, ditches on both sides, and random culverts waiting to snag vehicles leaving the roadway.  Or, consider the rollover crash, which is so much more prevalent on rural roadways than city streets.  One of the grimmest duties a police officer is called upon to perform is to work a crash where an unrestrained occupant is partially or completely ejected, and then crushed by the rolling vehicle.  It is easy to see why fully two-thirds of Kansas’ fatality crashes occur on rural roadways even though they see only one-third of all crashes.Kansans like to see their state as one which protects children, and it does well with its youngest ones, those aged 0-4, who are buckled in to child safety seats at the rate of 97%.  However, the percentage of properly restrained 5- to 13-year olds is only 82%.  Moreover, eight out of ten times when drivers, themselves, are unbelted, their child passengers are also unsecured.According to Chief Tracy Heath, “I want people in Wellington to remember that when they don’t buckle up themselves, or require their passengers to buckle up, they are, in effect, promising themselves and those passengers, along with family and friends not present, that no circumstance will arise that will trigger seat belt activation.  That the drivers they will encounter on the road are not going to be critically affected by drug or medical impairment, sleepiness, cell phone conversations, texting, sloshing coffee, the radio dial or kids fighting in the back seat.  Nor will there be animals in the road or a mechanical or other circumstance that will cause them to suddenly slow or veer out of their lane.”“I want people to know that, day or night, the Wellington Police Department is committed to aggressively ticketing violators of seat belt and child safety laws, as well as other traffic infractions – such as speeding and texting while driving – which make the need for occupant restraint so necessary.”Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
