The group dusted off a song from the rocker’s back catalog that hasn’t been played in 48 years – that’s 1968, for the record. “If I Could Have Her Tonight” appeared on Young’s 1969 self-titled album.Young started off the number by saying, “This is a song that you probably never even heard in your life….but that’s ok”, before playing the bust out. The group also debuted the track “When You Dance I Can Really Love“. Check out the second live version of “If I Could Have Her Tonight”, courtesy of M.

Image via New York State Governor Pool Feed.ALBANY — In remarks during Monday’s virus update, Gov. Andrew Cuomo foisted the blame on the Trump administration and the federal government for COVID-19 issues in New York.“The COVID problem in New York was a direct result of the negligence of the federal government. If this was a private situation, the state could sue the federal government for negligence. Gross negligence. The federal government is responsible for public health and international monitoring of public health,” Cuomo charged.He said the federal government, not state governments, are responsible for “public health, homeland security, track diseases around the world and make sure you know where they are and make sure you know if they’re coming here. That’s the federal job. You know what they did? They failed. They failed. You know how you know that? They admitted it. They admitted it. They said China virus. The virus came from China. The virus was in China in December. They don’t take action until March.”Cuomo challenged lawmakers to not provide funding for the MTA and come home seeking votes. “Now, you cost New Yorkers lives and you cost New Yorkers billions of dollars and now to add insult to injury, you want to say you’re not going to provide federal funds to help alleviate the damage that you caused? That’s going to be the imposition? It’s reprehensible,” Cuomo said.“Let those Congress people produce no federal funds and then come home to New York and run for re-election in November and let’s see what happens,” Cuomo said.Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)

Statewide-The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife is looking for volunteers to count wild turkeys and their offspring from July 1 to Aug. 31.Each summer, wildlife biologists and volunteers conduct brood surveys, counting the number of young wild turkeys observed with turkey hens to estimate how many young turkeys live through the summer. Summer brood survival is one of the primary factors influencing wild turkey population trends in various regions of the state and informs wild turkey management.Turkey biologists can’t do it by themselves. So they need help from volunteers to get an accurate count of turkey broods in the state.The goal this summer is to collect 3,000 brood observation reports from citizens across the state, with at least 25 brood observations in each county.To help, please register as a 2019 participant by clicking here. Instructions for the survey and an illustrative guide on how to report observations of wild turkey broods and hens are provided on the website.
