Florida Jam is set to take place on October 20th, at Boca Raton’s Sunset Cove Amphitheater. Earlier in the year, Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts would headline the festival, as part of this 2018 comeback tour following his retirement announcement three years ago. In the months since, Betts has toured across the United States, with sporadic headlining shows and festival sets, including at the highly anticipated Peach Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in mid-July. However, recently, Florida Jam shared with fans that Dickey Betts cancelled his performance at Florida Jam. In his stead, Gov’t Mule has been tapped to headline the event with a 90-minute set, joining the lineup also featuring The Elvin Bishop Band and Eric Gales.Florida Jam was previously scheduled to take place on May 19th, coming at the start of Dickey Betts’ comeback tour. However, weather forced the festival to be canceled, with the scheduled time moving five months later to October 20th. An announcement posted by Florida Jam’s promoter, Music Jam Productions, notedWithout getting into drama related to Dickey Betts, we will just say that he canceled his appearance without any explanation. We take issue with that decision, especially after he agreed to the new date of October 20 from the prior May 19 rain date. Unfortunately this is not the first time Betts has canceled shows in South Florida. We placed trust in him at great expense. However we are more than thrilled to have the very professional, reliable and talented Gov’t Mule come in and take over as the headliner.

Press Association There was the odd hairy moment in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Tottenham, but the France international is confident of kicking on next term. “It was a little bit difficult for me,” Mangala said, assessing the campaign. “I need to adapt to the Premier League. “I know the Premier League better now. I think I am used to playing each kind of game and I am very confident for the other seasons and the next season now.” Mangala’s adaptation has no doubt been hampered by City’s own struggles, with their tame title defence ended by Chelsea on Sunday. However, they can at least look forward to Champions League football next term after the win in north London all but secured a top-four finish. That was far from certain a few weeks back and now Manuel Pellegrini’s men are aiming to finish second or third, which would see them progress straight to the group stage. “We are happy because we knew yesterday Manchester (United) lost against West Bromwich,” Mangala said. “It was important for us to win this game and the most important thing is three points, so it was a good game for us. “We have three games and now the objective is that we need to finish second or third to go straight to play the Champions League next season.” Mangala knows City would not have been celebrating an eighth win in nine Premier League matches against Tottenham was it not for Sergio Aguero and a man-of-the-match display from Joe Hart. “For me, I enjoy playing with Joe,” he said. “He showed today he is a good goalkeeper. It is important to have a goalkeeper like that behind us. “I think he is a young player, he has a good career ahead of him and we need to respect what he does. “The first goal started with Joe. He recovered the ball and played it quickly to David and finished with Kun, he scored a very great goal. “It was very important for us today – thank you Joe today and thank you Sergio.” The defeat almost certainly extinguishes Spurs’ hopes of Champions League qualification and left defender Eric Dier ruing what could have been. “It was very frustrating,” the England Under-21s international told Spurs TV. “I think we played well for the majority of the game. “Obviously Man City are a good side and had spells when they were better than us, but I think we played well and obviously missed a few chances which is disappointing. “If you don’t take your chances, that’s what happens, especially against big teams like Man City. You’ve got to take your chances and we haven’t done that.” Eliaquim Mangala believes Manchester City will soon see the best of him after what has been a “difficult” first season. Arriving in a £32million deal from Porto, a lot was expected from the highly-rated 24-year-old central defender. The transition has been far from seamless, though, and Mangala has endured a fair few tough moments in his first Premier League season.

By John BurtonSEA BRIGHT – There’s plenty to be done as the borough continues to work its way back after Super Storm Sandy and Mayor Dina Long is glad for the help Sea Bright received from a handful of county inmates.“There is no shortage of projects in Sea Bright,” Long said as she and representatives from the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office joined seven inmates from the Monmouth County Correctional Institution, Freehold, as the inmates provided the labor for some work on the borough’s beachfront.Monmouth County Sheriff’s Officer Thomas Johnson is joined by Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long while overseeing inmates from the county correctional institution cleaning the beach in Sea Bright.Five to seven inmates traveled to the borough for much of the week of Jan. 28-Feb. 1 and cleared mounds of sand; cleaned up debris and trash; shoveled sand off of walkways along the borough’s sea wall along Ocean Avenue; and other needed work, according to Cynthia Scott, public information officer for the sheriff’s office.The group also worked on cleaning up the borough’s police headquarters that had been damaged in the late October storm, Long noted.The seven men, clad in orange jumpsuits, were stringing a length of dune fencing on Thursday, Jan. 31, along a section of beach located behind the borough hall and the former Donovan’s Reef bar site on Ocean Avenue.The fence is being erected in a zigzag pattern along that stretch to catch shifting sand and to build up the dunes. It’s an important step in helping rebuild the beaches, Long said.The mayor was happy to get the help. “We’re real lucky that Monmouth County has this program,” Long said.Over the last few weeks crews from the sheriff’s Inmate Labor Program have been working in Belmar and Bradley Beach, helping with those towns’ recovery and cleanup efforts. They are scheduled to be in Millstone the next week, Scott said.“I think this program is a good opportunity to help these towns” impacted by Sandy, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden said in a phone interview.The sheriff’s office has had the labor program for about 10 years. During his time as sheriff, Golden, who was elected in 2010, said he has increased it, with an average of three crews of five to eight inmates each, out in the field in any given week.The sheriff’s office operates the county’s 1,328-bed correctional facility and permits inmates incarcerated for minor offenses, usually first-time offenders, to participate in the program. It allows the inmates access outside of the facility, usually for five to six hours a day, and permits them to accumulate credits which could result in an overall reduction of their sentences, Golden said.The workforce is available at no cost to the communities, according to Scott.Sea Bright has benefitted from the program previously with crews coming to the borough to participate in the annual spring Project Clean Shores program, according to Long.
