Congratulations to Elliott Foster, author, Panic River, on a great event at Moon Palace Books in Minneapolis the evening of Feb. 12. Panic River is the story of Corey Fischer, a gay man on the cusp of his 40s. As the story gets underway, he stands to lose all connections in his life, from his family, which has disowned him because of his sexuality, to his chosen husband Nick, who has betrayed his trust. His artistic pursuits do not hold the promise they once did, either, and this is one of the reasons Nick, who has been largely supporting them, has grown distant and disappointed.
Of the book, Midwest Book Review says, "In many ways, Panic River is the quintessential story of middle-age revelations and angst; but it also presents an edgy exploration of the impact of an inheritance which changes everything and exposes the darker underside of a much-changed relationship.... Elliott Foster excels at creating a hard-hitting story that begins softly, with a life on the verge of big changes, and then moves into the protagonist's ability to accept illusion and, finally, reality. This forces him - and readers - to understand not only the pull and power of past influences, but their ability to craft and warp present-day reality."

A story about Melody Page's effort to overturn an unfair law in the state of Florida aired Feb. 10 at 11 p.m. on WPEC TV, the CBS affiliate in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Page is a founding member of the Florida Medical Rights Association. Her organization has been very active in trying to get Florida’s so-called “Free Kill” law repealed, and significant progress was made a few weeks ago. HB 6051 is in the House to repeal Florida's Free Kill law, which protects doctors and hospitals from lawsuits in cases where a person who dies of medical negligence does not have a spouse, or a child under the age of 25.
Page's motivation was the death of her father, Ken Sandberg. He died at a Broward County hospital after an inappropriate dose of a medication he was given to sedate him caused him to stop breathing. In Sandberg’s case, his wife had died just days before he did, and his children are in their 40s. This family, and many others just like them, have no legal recourse even when negligence is clearly to blame for a loved one’s death.
