Widespread Panic continues its mine of the archives with a pair of video releases including footage of “Tallboy” from the band’s 10/5/13 concert at Family Circle Stadium, along with a clip of “Action Man” from the band’s concert film Live from the Backyard. Filmed live at The Backyard in Austin, TX on 7/20/02, the performance came less than three weeks after founding guitarist Michael Houser‘s last show on July 2nd.This is merely the latest in an ongoing content dump from the Georgia rock outfit. Over the weekend, the band also shared videos of “Tipitina” and “Driving Song” taken from the 2002 documentary The Earth Will Swallow You.The video of “Action Man” delivers a blast from the past from Panic’s transitional period following Houser’s departure and untimely death shortly thereafter. Here fans fan find George McConnell filling in on guitar and adding his own flavor of blues licks to the songs. Rather than trying to emulate Houser’s iconic lingering lead, McConnell instead puts in his own blend of spices into the pot while still giving reverence to the band’s founding guitarist and musical guidepost. Also on hand during this cut from the second set closer is Randall Bramblet on saxophone who helps drive home this impassioned version of the Don’t Tell the Band track.Related: The Lame Ducks Ft.

The state has sensible options to pay for childcare expansion and other smart investments while making Vermont’ s tax system more equitable. That’ s the focus of a new report released by Public Assets Institute. The report suggests getting rid of some state tax deductions, which would then lead to a significant increase in revenue.Most agree that expanding childcare is a good idea: good for children, workers, and the economy. The report (CLICK HERE) identifies five options that could pay for this expansion or other state investments by increasing revenue from the state income tax without raising rates and without hurting low-wage workers.‘ We need to make public investments in order to prosper,’ said Public Assets Institute President Paul Cillo. ‘ Vermont can make smart investments in people, programs, and infrastructure that provide opportunity and ensure the wellbeing of all Vermonters. And we can do it in a way that makes Vermont’ s tax system more equitable.’One option discussed in the report is elimination of the state income tax deduction for state income taxes paid. The vast majority of states that allow itemized deductions do not include state and local income taxes. Vermont currently caps the deduction at $5,000. Eliminating it would generate about $16 million in new revenue. Another option, eliminating itemized deductions in favor of a higher standard deduction for all filers, could raise $25 million. The revenue estimates were prepared by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy in Washington, DC.The governor’ s proposal to cut the state’ s Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) increases income tax revenue by about $17 million without raising rates. However, that revenue comes from the poorest working Vermonters, making the state’ s tax system more regressive.The report, ‘ Vermont Has Options to Raise Revenue for Smart Investments,’ is available at publicassets.org.Public Assets Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that promotes sound budget and tax policies to benefit all Vermonters.

Tens of thousands of people have been unable to assert their workplace rights due to the massive hike in employment tribunal fees, the Law Society has said, accusing the government of being ‘wilfully blind’ to the impact of the controversial measures.Responding to the Ministry of Justice’s review of the impact of tribunal fees, Chancery Lane said the ’oppressive’ fees must be removed to ensure justice is upheld for those who need it.Society president Robert Bourns said: ’In the face of plummeting numbers of cases going to the tribunal, falling settlement rates, and thousands of people saying they could not take their cases to the tribunal due to high fees, only by being wilfully blind can the government claim there is “no evidence” that fees are stopping people enforcing their rights.’An estimated 14,000 people per year have unsuccessfully attempted conciliation for their employment dispute but were unable to take their case to the tribunal because of fees.Bourns said: ‘With employment tribunal cases having fallen by around 70% immediately after the fees were introduced, these 14,000 people are the tip of the iceberg.’Tens of thousands of other cases have simply disappeared from the system, to be written off by the government as somehow unmeritorious or unworthy, adding insult to injury for those whose employment rights have been ignored.’Although justice minister Sir Oliver Heald said the current system is ‘generally working effectively and is operating lawfully’, the ministry will consult on proposals to extend support to people on low incomes.People over 25 earning up to £1,250 a month (gross) would be exempt from fees, up from £1,085 now. There will be additional allowances for people living as couples and those with children. Fees will be remitted for certain proceedings related to payments made from the National Insurance Fund.However, Bourns said: ’The solutions the government now proposes are little more than tinkering around the edges, which can never address the tens of thousands of individual workers effectively barred by these fees from asserting their rights.’If the government is genuine about workers being able to defend their rights at work it must restore access to the employment tribunal. This means removing oppressive fees to ensure that justice is upheld for those who need it.’

Chris Simpson held off Cayden Carter in winning the IMCA Modified feature, and $1,000, at Benton County Speedway’s opener Sunday night. The checkers put Simpson on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. (Photo by Jim Wittke) The IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature was another nailbiter. Leah Wroten led early as she has shown that she will be a force to be reckoned with. Steve Meyer took the lead on lap 16 of the 20 lap feature and went on to take the checkers, just nipping Damon Murty at the checkers. Wroten held on to finish third. Defending national champion Tyler Soppe scored the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod win. He chased down early leader Ben Chapman and made the winning move as the race slipped past the midway point. The headliner of the night was the 25-lap IMCA Modified feature, which provided great racing on the perfectly prepared track and a battle to the checkered flag. Simpson, driving a Doug Cue-owned car, started on the pole position, led the race early and appeared to have control of the race until fourth starting Carter began to reel him. Carter raced to the white flag on the rear bumper of Simpson and set up a side-by-side drag race down the back chute as the checkered flag was about to be waved. Simpson shot off the high side of turn four and held off Carter at the finish line taking the win by half a car length. Ethan Braaksma followed across the stripe in third. By Jerry Mackey Simpson’s victory paid $1,000 and put him on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.

You’re all set! “Winning is obviously the best part,” Long Beach State coach Mike Weathers said. “But getting to see so many guys this weekend was also nice.” The Dirtbags (2-1) used seven true freshmen in the three-game series against a USC lineup that didn’t have any starters back in the same positions from a year ago and featured eight newcomers throughout the weekend. The questions about the newcomers were quickly put out of the way, and the initial answers were more pleasing for LongBeach State. In a matchup of teams loaded with youth and uncertainty, Long Beach State put many of its newcomers to use in defeating USC 5-1 Sunday at Dedeaux Field in the deciding game of the season-opening series. Senior left-hander Omar Arif (1-0) got the win in his Long Beach State debut. Arif, a transfer from Texas Christian, where he was a reliever, was on a tight pitch count, but held USC to twohits in four shutout innings in the start against Trojans newcomer Anthony Vasquez. Vasquez (0-1), a sophomore transfer from Texas A&M who had started in the outfield during the Trojans’ first three games, went six innings. The left-hander allowed two runs on six hits and four walks with three strikeouts. The biggest blow of the afternoon came from one of the few established Dirtbags. Shortstop Danny Espinosa, lastyear’s BigWest Conference Freshman of the Year, hit a three-run homer on the first pitch from USC reliever Shawn Olsen to cap the scoring in the seventh inning. Designated hitter J.J. Owen, who was 2 for 3, was the only USC player with multiple hits. [email protected]
