Anyone who had a huge weakness for the late '80s/early '90s East Bay punk scene (such as yours truly) will probably dig The Bad Years in a big way.

The young band — most of them are still in high school — has a sound that's heavily inspired by Jawbreaker, early Green Day, Samiam, Pinhead Gunpowder and the like.

They weave in local influences as well, The Big Cats namely. Check out "Nowhere in Sight," for a catchy nugg of buzzsaw pop-punk.

  • Lawsuit says Crittenden Regional Hospital charged employees for health insurance premiums but never paid claims

    A lawsuit filed on Friday in the Circuit Court of Crittenden County alleges that at least beginning in 2014, Crittenden Regional Hospital (CRH) withheld money from employees' paychecks for health insurance premiums, but never actually paid the claims. That would potentially leave their employees on the hook for tens of thousands of dollars in medical care they were told was covered by their health insurance. The practice may have dated back even further, said Denny Sumpter, the attorney for the plaintiffs.
