Country music festival coming to Chester County next year

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
 

LUDWIG’S CORNER >> A three-day country music festival featuring some of the biggest names in country music will be coming to Chester County next year, organizers announced Thursday.

The Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Association Wednesday night accepted an offer to host Country Spirit USA, a major country music concert.

The event will be held Aug. 24-Aug. 26, 2018, at Ludwig’s Corner, a 33-acre site at 1325 Pottstown Pike (Route 100) in Glenmoore.

“It’s a done deal, we’re excited we will be bringing a major festival to Chester County,” said Alan Jacoby, executive producer of Impact Entertainment, which also hosts Country Summer, northern California’s biggest country music festival. “The site process took longer than expected but Ludwig’s Corner was one of the top candidates when we first started looking at sites. This is a beautiful destination.”

Jacoby said it’s too early to name the entertainers, adding that talent negotiations are already underway.

“We will have the best big-name headlines in country music,” Jacoby said. “This is driven by talent.”

Jacoby said a one-day ticket to the event will start at $89, with a discounted rate for a three-day pass. He said once the headliners are locked in, tickets will go on sale.

Jacoby said every aspect of the country music festival will be of the highest quality.

“We will have food vendors, and these are the same ones who handle concessions at Bonnaroo and Country Jam,” Jacoby said. “We are bringing in top-notch people all the way around.”

Organizers have worked out details on security, traffic and curfew with West Vincent Township officials.

“I know they don’t have big police department, but we will work with them on supplementing their personnel,” Jacoby said. “Nothing will come out of the township’s budget.”

Susan Hamley, executive director of the Chester County Conference and Visitors Bureau, said the concert will be a boon to Chester County.

“This will put us on the map in a bigger way,” she said. “This (concert) will draw a lot of attention to the county, and people can see how beautiful it is, and everything there is to see and do. Then they will come back again and again.”

Organizers began planning the country music event two years ago. Chester County was chosen as an ideal location because of its bucolic setting, and because it is in close proximity to Philadelphia, Baltimore and New York City.

They first pitched it to East Marlborough Township in hopes of bringing it to the Willowdale Fair Grounds, but supervisors rejected it due to security, curfew and traffic concerns. The New Garden Flying Field was also eyed as a potential site, but the FAA rejected the idea because it is a non-aeronautical event. The Brandywine Polo Club in New Garden was also considered, but ultimately New Garden supervisors didn’t have enough time to consider the request.

“Ludwig’s Corner is beautiful, grassy, pristine and a perfect setting for a country music concert,” Jacoby said. “There is plenty of land adjacent to the site. There is room for parking and camping, and it’s close to the Pennsylvania Turnpike with some of the highest concentration of hotels in the county.”

Updated information will be posted on www.countryspiritusa.com, and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CountrySpiritUSA/. A limited number of category exclusive sponsorship options are available for a select group of companies that desire to align their brand with Country Spirit USA.

Mantis shrimp brain contains memory and learning centers found only in insects

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

 

 

This mantis shrimp (Gonodactylus smithii) might have a much more elaborate brain than previously thought. That’s the conclusion of the first study to peer into the head of more than 200 crustaceans, including crabs, shrimp, and lobsters. Researchers discovered that the brain of mantis shrimp contains memory and learning centers, called mushroom bodies, which so far have been seen only in insects. The team also found similar structures in close relatives of these sea creatures: cleaner shrimp, pistol shrimp, and hermit crabs. This may not be a coincidence, the researchers say, because mantis shrimp and their brethren are the only crustaceans that hunt over long distances and might have to remember where to get food. But the finding, reported in eLife, is likely to stir debate: Scientists agree that mushroom bodies evolved after the insect lineage split off from the crustacean lineage about 480 million years ago; finding these learning centers in mantis shrimp means that either mushroom bodies are much more ancient than scientists realized and were lost in all crustaceans but mantis shrimp, or that these structures are similar to their counterparts in insects but have evolved independently.

Are your child’s report card grades not as strong as you had hoped? Don’t wait too long to reach out for help!

 

The first step in helping your child to be successful this year is to accurately identify their skill levels. We can help parents to identify any underlying skill gaps and create a solution to fill them. This is the best way to answer the question: “WHY is my child struggling in a subject.”

 

We can also help students who are ahead of their game and challenge them to perform above grade level—in other words, we equip all students to reach their fullest potentials.

 

We’re primarily a group of highly qualified, certified educators. We use the most highly respected diagnostic skill evaluation in the world to identify a student’s skill levels. Just like a dentist wouldn’t treat your tooth without first doing a diagnostic x-ray, we need a diagnostic skill evaluation to accurately determine if a student has underlying issues or skill gaps. The innovative, adaptive technology in our testing yields results that are independently verified and extremely accurate.

 

How does our skill evaluation work? We simply email your child a link to take this evaluation online, right in your own home. It couldn’t be easier! We’re offering this test to families in our community at no charge and no obligation whatsoever. It’s an invaluable tool for parents to keep in their back pockets!

Are evenings more like a war-zone at your house?

Are evenings more like a war-zone at your house?

When schedules permit, consider instituting a Homework before Dinner” routine.

 

By the time kids have unwound from school, had dinner, and engaged in myriad other distractions, who wants to do more school work?? It takes a super-dose of effort and discipline to re-focus on homework…like trying to start-up a stopped train—wheels straining and squealing all the way.

 

Save

 

Having a “Homework before Dinner” routine can be an effective strategy to restore peace around the dinner table. Homework gets done more efficiently while momentum is still flowing from the school day, and kids are still “in the zone.”

Try it out! You have nothing to lose…except homework blues!
