Ward died in a car accident that year, was replaced by Barry Flast, another keyboardist from San Francisco. In 1974, Kingfish became more well known, signed their first record contract, after Grateful Dead guitarist and singer Bob Weir, a long-time friend of Kelly's, joined the band. Weir toured with Kingfish and was a band member on their first two albums and Live'n' Kickin'; when the Dead started touring again in 1976, Weir left Kingfish, along with Hoddinott and Herold, who were replaced by Michael O'Neill and David Perper. The lineup of the band continued to change, with Torbert remaining at the core. In 1979 Torbert and Kelly parted ways and Torbert formed a new lineup with Danny "Rio" DeGennaro and Michael O'Neill on guitars and sharing lead vocals.

Part of that lineup were Steve Shive and Ralph Liberto. Dave Torbert died of a heart attack in 1982. Starting in 1984, Kingfish would regroup from time to time and go on tour with a evolving lineup of musicians led by Matthew Kelly. In 1987, Kelly released a solo album called A Wing and a Prayer. In 1999 Kingfish released a new studio album, Sundown on the Forest, recorded over a period of several years with different combinations of musicians, including Bob Weir and a number of other Kingfish veterans.

Bo├čler family

The Boßler or Bossler family is a German family from Neckarsteinach in the state of Hesse. Members of the family were entrepreneurs in inland navigation on the Rhine. There is a family line, active in freight shipping called the older line and a family line, active in passenger shipping called the younger line; the younger line of the family is still co-owner of the Weiße Flotte Heidelberg. The family tree begins in 1616 in the hessian Amt Lichtenberg; the progenitor of the family was Martin Boßler. His descendants were foresters in the service of the Landgraves of Hesse-Darmstadt, higher tax officials in the Amt Lichtenberg and Burgraves of Lichtenberg; the grand-grandson of Martin Boßler Johann Ludwig Boßler became resident in Nieder-Modau in the district Darmstadt-Dieburg. The teacher Johannes I. Boßler from Nieder-Modau became resident in 1822 in Neckarsteinach, another town in Hesse directly on the Neckar. There he was a landlord, his wife Catharina Friederike Pfautz comes from the Pfautz family who lived in Sinsheim and the surrounding villages.

Members of the Pfautz family went to the USA in the 18th century. Herbert Hoover was one of the descendants. Elisabeth Margaretha Boßler was married to Johann Jacob Liebig, an uncle of the chemist Justus von Liebig; the astronomer Jean Bosler was a member of the Boßler family from Hesse. His great-grandfather Johannes Boßler went to Paris. In France the surname Boßler was changed to the form Bosler; the entire Boßler family is divided into a younger line and an older line. Werner Ludwig Boßler from the older family line had placed the construction order for the largest inland cargo ship in Germany in 1990; this could carry 3200 freight. Another cargo ship built by Werner Ludwig Boßler was the Jean Bossler III this inland freighter ship was under the name Excelsior involved in an accident on the Rhine in 2007 that went down in the history of the river. After this accident, the Rhine was closed for five days; the younger line of the family had owned shipping companies in passenger shipping. In 1926 Andreas and Georg Boßler founded the shipping company Personenschiffahrt Gebr.

Bossler. Herbert Rudolf Bossler, who comes from the younger family line, became resident in Bad Friedrichshall in the district of Heilbronn. In 1948 he created the Personenschiffahrt Herbert Bossler; the shipping company of Herbert Bossler was unrivalled until 1975. In 1986 Personenschiffahrt Herbert Bossler was sold to Personenschifffahrt Stumpf from Heilbronn. Gebr. Bossler was followed by Heidelberger Fahrgastschiffahrt Bossler oHG in 1968. In 2013, Heidelberger Fahrgastschiffahrt Bossler oHG merged with another company to form the Weiße Flotte Heidelberg, thus a family branch of the younger line is involved in one of the largest tourism companies in the shipping industry in southern Germany.

Callitris columellaris

Callitris columellaris is a species of coniferous tree in the family Cupressaceae, native to most of Australia. Common names include White Cypress-pine, Murray River Cypress-pine, Northern Cypress-pine. Callitris columellaris has become naturalised in southern Florida, it is 4 -- 12 m high, with a trunk up to 50 cm diameter. The leaves are scale-like, 2–6 mm long and 0.5 mm broad, arranged in decussate whorls of three on slender shoots 0.7–1 mm diameter. The cones are globose, 1–2 cm diameter, with six triangular scales, which open at maturity to release the seeds; some authors divide it into three species, based on the foliage colour, with green plants predominating on the east coast of Australia, glaucous plants in the interior, on cone size, with on average marginally smaller cones in tropical areas. However, others point out that both the foliage colour and cone size is variable from tree to tree in local populations, maintain that it is impossible to distinguish three taxa within the species.

When split into three species, the following names apply: Callitris columellaris F. Muell. Sensu stricto – coastal northeast New South Wales, southeast Queensland. Callitris glaucophylla Joy Thomps. & L. A. S. Johnson – throughout most of the southern half of Australia. Callitris intratropica R. T. Baker & H. G. Smith – northern Queensland, northern Northern Territory, northern Western Australia. Eric Rolls described the pollination of C.columellaris thus: "At pollination time when hundreds of cones go off together with a sharp crack and spurt brown pollen a metre into the air, the whole tree shivers."

Brian Quinn (hurler)

Brian Quinn is an Irish former hurler who played as a right corner-back for the Clare senior hurling team. Quinn made his first appearance for the team during the 1994-95 National League and became a regular member of the starting fifteen over the next decade. During that time he won one Munster medal on the field of play while he won two All-Ireland medals as a non-playing substitute, he ended up as an All-Ireland runner-up on one occasion. He won all Ireland junior. At club level Quinn is a one-time county club championship medalist with Tulla, his brother, Andrew Quinn played hurling with Clare. Quinn enjoyed much success in the twilight of his career. In 2007 Tulla reached the final of the county championship for the first time in seventy-five years. Crusheen, a team who had never won the title, provided the opposition. Quinn scored a crucial goal and collected a Clare Senior Hurling Championship medal following a 1-7 to 0-9 victory. Tulla lost by 2 points in terrible conditions. Quinn won his second Clare hurler of the year for his club performances, scoring seven goals along the way.

Quinn first came to prominence on the inter-county scene as a member of the Clare junior hurling team. He won a Munster medal in this grade in 1993 following a 2-15 to 0-10 trouncing of Waterford. Clare qualified for an All-Ireland final meeting with Kilkenny. A 3-10 to 0-8 victory gave Quinn an All-Ireland medal. Success in the junior grade allowed Quinn to join the Clare senior team, he made his debut in a National Hurling League game against Galway in 1994 and was an unused substitute for Clare's Munster and All-Ireland triumphs in 1995. Quinn made his senior championship debut against Kerry in 1997, however, he was once again confined to the substitutes' bench for Clare's subsequent Munster and All-Ireland successes. In 1998 Quinn became a regular member of the Clare starting fifteen, he won his first Munster medal on the field of play that year following a tense draw and a replay with Waterford. While Clare were installed as the favourites to retain their All-Ireland crown, a series of bizarre events led to one of the most controversial championship summers ever.

Clare drew with Offaly in the All-Ireland semi-final, however, in the replay Clare were winning by two points when the referee, Jimmy Cooney, blew the whistle with two minutes of normal time left to be played. The Offaly fans staged a sit-down protest on the Croke Park pitch; the result was not allowed to stand and Clare were forced to meet Offaly for a third time that year. They lost the second replay. Quinn got an all star nomination for his displays that year. Clare lost Munster final and all semi final again in 1999,In 2000 2001 and 2002 clare lost all first rounds to tipp. After a number of disappointing championship seasons, Clare surprised the hurling world by qualifying for the All-Ireland final again in 2002. Quinn's side put up a good fight against Kilkenny, however, a combined tally of 2-13 for Henry Shefflin and D. J. Carey gave "the Cats" a seven-point victory. Clare bounced back in 2003 and beat tipp in first round with his brother Andrew scoring an all important goal only to get knocked out by cork and galway in the qualifiers.

Quinn won his 1st Clare hurler of the year in 2003 for his displays. Quinn continued to line out with Clare for the next few seasons but called time on his inter-county career following the team's exit from the championship in the 2005 all ireland semi final. Quinn was included on the Munster panel in 1999 in a defeat by Connacht in the final of the Railway Cup. In 2015 after managing successful underage teams Quinn went on to manage his club Tulla at senior level for 3 years retaining senior status and reaching two quarter-finals. At underage he was involved with Tulla winning a U21 in 1992, losing a final in 1997 and a minor A final in 1998, but won again U21 in 2014, he won a U16B and a minor B championship with Tulla /Boydke, has been involved in successful Tulla Comogie teams
