Sublime with RomeSublime with Rome is only to be sort of confused with California reggae/ska/dub superstars Sublime, who rose to fame in the 1990s just as their founding singer died of a heroin overdose. The last remaining original member of Sublime still jamming with the reincarnated version the band, bassist Eric Wilson, now shares stages with newish members Josh Freese on drums and singer/guitarist Roman Ramirez, aka Rome. Their tour bus stops here at the ‘Mount for a highly anticipated set list that includes fan-favorite tributes to the late great Sublime singer and guitarist Bradley Nowell, as well as Rome-grown singles off their 2011 album, Yours Truly. Opening the show are local funksters Oogee Wawa.

You will absolutely eat up Bourdain, then. We’re sure you’ve consumed his cult classic Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, stood in awe at least a few times throughout the past few years in front of the TV set, eyes wild open, jaw agape, while he took down some insanely bizarre exotic food concoction on his wild treks around the globe on his wildly popular No Reservations on the Travel Channel. Recently he’s taken his legendary no-holds-barred approach to food to CNN, as host of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. To some, he is nothing short of a food demi-god (You can bet your bacon bits Press food marauder Chris Cooke is a fan; damn that man likes to eat! Would Bourdain possibly pair up with Cooke to kneecap some strange, weird feast sometime in the future if the TV star is impressed with some of the culinary treats he’ll be devouring during his trek out East!? Wow.). If you’re not as familiar with his edible conquests (or his love of NYC and the Ramones), fear not, this visit is your chance to jump right in.

Siems raced to the front and Olson raced too high in turn four and dropped his right rear off the track which caused him to drop way back in the field. Olson charged back through the pack to earn a top five, crossing under the checkers one position behind Siems. With the finish, Olson and Siems tied in points earned but Olson held the tie breaker in feature wins earning him the track championship. The IMCA Sunoco Late Models decided their season championships a week ago but ran a draw/redraw show on Saturday. Sean Johnson ended the season on a high note by scoring his third consecutive feature win. Wroten then charged back to the front as a young lady on a mission. When the checkers flew it was Holtz taking the win with Schmitt in second, Kevin Rose was in third and Wroten raced all the way back to fourth. The finish ended the season point standings in a tie with Schmitt and Wroten and the tie breaker was feature wins with Wroten holding the advantage. By Jerry Mackey The same scenario played out in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods. Tony Olson came into the night with a one point advantage in the season standings ahead of Kip Siems. Troy Bauer took the lead early and raced out front the entire main event as the battle for the track championship unfolded behind him. The IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars came into the night with Leah Wroten holding a two-point advantage over Tom Schmitt. Wroten needed to finish no more than two positions behind Schmitt to earn the season championship. With Phil Holtz racing out front and both Schmitt and Wroten headed to the front, Wroten was involved in a skirmish that sent her to the back of the 20-car field. INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (Aug. 8) – Saturday saw the 2020 IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing season come to an end with the running of season championship races at Independence Motor Speedway and several division titles were decided in dramatic fashion. Wroten stated in victory lane, “Winning a track championship was not even on our radar this year, as a rookie in the IMCA Stock Car class all I wanted to do was get seat time and finish races.” Hibdon took the lead early and appeared to have the race in the bag until his mentor chased him down and made a late-race charge to the win. Aikey scored his first Indee IMCA Modified track title as well as winning the season championship main event. The IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks saw a first-time winner make his way to victory lane. Marcus Wayne scored his first win at his hometown track. Kaden Reynolds had built a comfortable lead in season points and with a fifth place finish the 18 year old from Cedar Rapids earned the track crown. Jeff Aikey put an exclamation point on a great season in the IMCA Modifieds Saturday night. Aikey started the 20-lap season championship in the sixth row, with his teammate Kollin Hibdon in the second row. All 2020 IMCA point standings become official on Oct. 26.
University of Wisconsin women’s golfer and First Team All-Big Ten senior Brooke Ferrell was named the Big Ten Conference Golfer of the Week Wednesday after her performance and win at the Cardinal Cup in Simpsonville, Kentucky late last week. The senior will look to back up arguably the best outing of her career in Madison as the Badgers travel to the UCF Challenge in Orlando, Florida in early February to begin the spring season.Ferrell’s collective effort of 2-under for the tournament and 4-under 68 in the second round was enough to earn her the third Big Ten Golfer of the Week award of her career and closed out a successful season for the Badgers. After starting off slow with a 3-over 75 in the first round, the Edgerton, Wisconsin native roared back to close out the tournament with a combined 4-under in the final two rounds to secure her first-ever solo title.Ferrell came close a season ago at the same event when she was unable to shoot ahead at the end and tied for first. The Badger senior followed up her performance last year with a strong start and separate Big Ten Golfer of the Week honors with a tie for first at the 2016 Westbrook Invitational earlier this season.With a standout season a year ago, Ferrell has firmly established herself as the leader on this team and will most likely continue to make headlines as the team heads into the spring. While golf is an individual sport, the Badgers will hope to give the senior a better supporting cast as their leader heads into her final semester.Ferrell has been one of the most consistent female golfers in Wisconsin history, leading the team this season at 72.3 strokes per round and posting a program season best 73.25 a year ago. While the school has not had an especially storied past, Ferrell led the team in scoring for three straight years and finished third in the Big Ten Championships and tied at 59th in the NCAA regionals a season ago.Warm weather brings out the women’s golf teamThe recent wave of warm weather has had many college students out walking the streets and sitting at the Union Read…The headline come spring will be whether Ferrell can make some postseason headlines and capture the elusive Big Ten title that she fell just short of a year ago. All in all, her win at the Cardinal Cup is a good sign moving forward for her and the Wisconsin program.
