The Magic Beans returned to the place of their conception this past weekend, playing an unforgettable show in the mountains to close out their fall tour. Nederland, CO is a town that sits 20min west of Boulder at 9,000 feet above sea level. It’s best known for being home to bands such as String Cheese Incident, Leftover Salmon, and Yonder Mountain String Band as well as its quirky yearly event, Frozen Dead Guy Days. Ned’s rich musical history has prompted the creation of a beautiful new venue, The Caribou Room.The Beans helped break in this new hometown spot with a packed, two-set show featuring Amoramora as support. The first set included a huge palindrome song sandwich and a very appropriate set closing “We Are Family” cover featuring Rachel Hollingsworth on vocals. The second set featured fan favorite bustouts like “Pizza Baby” and non-stop music segued from first song to last. However, more notably there were multiple references to the King of Pop; including “Smooth Criminal” teases, an instrumental “The Way You Make Me Feel”, and a “Billie Jean” jam all encapsulated into improv sections of the set.Listen to the instrumental cover of “The Way You Make Me Feel” here.Next up for Magic Beans is their Hallow-Bean run at The Fillmore in Denver, Schmiggity’s in Steamboat Springs, and Barkley Ballroom in Frisco.

In the consultation document, MHCLG said the funds projected that 50% of the newly merged fund would be under Border to Coast’s management by 31 March 2023, and 60% by 31 March 2025.The administering authorities have previously estimated the merger would enable administration and governance savings of around 10-12% per annum.David Davison, head of charity and public sector services at Spence & Partners, said the approval of the merger was “to be greatly welcomed and will hopefully be the start of many more similar arrangements adding value and consistency in the sector”.“There are too many small LGPS in the UK who cannot benefit from the economies of scale of larger funds so are not serving the tax payer, or indeed their members, as well as they might,” he said, adding that transition costs needed to be effectively managed to ensure maximum value was derived from the merger.As at the end of March 2019, the Tyne and Wear pension fund had £8.8bn (€9.8bn) in assets under management, and Northumberland £1.4bn.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here. The UK government has approved the merger of the Northumberland and Tyne and Wear local authority pension funds, the former being one of the smallest funds in the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) in England and Wales.The decision follows a consultation on the merger that drew three supportive responses, with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) today also saying the joint application that had been submitted last year “set out a strong case for the merger of the two pension funds”.The merger is intended to facilitate efficiencies and economies of scale, and will build on existing collaboration between the pension funds, which have been operating a shared pensions administration service for two years.Both pension funds participate in the Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, one of the eight asset pooling vehicles in the LGPS. According to the MHCLG document, the plan has been for Northumberland’s assets to be transferred to the pool at the same time as they are aligned with Tyne and Wear’s new target investment strategy.

Though Wildcats kept possession for most of the match, they could not find the net with the game ending in a 0-0 tie.Richmond barely had the ball beyond their halfline, forcing freshman keeper Levi Sanders to only 3 saves. The rest of the match was all FC. Noah Burgin returned from a knee injury and stabilized the back four with Reese Catron. Kenny Bruns and Lucas Stacy had their best performances of the young season so far, neutralizing the outside speed of Richmond. Keep it up boys!The ‘Cats have the day off today but will return to the practice pitch on Monday in preparation for Union County on Tuesday.Courtesy of Wildcats Coach Dan Gartenman.
