■ At a World Cup qualifier match in October in Quito, Ecuador, police arrived during the game to question star player Enner Valencia about an unpaid alimony complaint, and he saw them waiting on the sideline. Local media reported that Valencia then faked an on-field injury near the end of the match to "necessitate" being taken away by ambulance, thus outmaneuvering the police. (He settled the complaint in time for the next match.) [Daily Telegraph (London), 10-7-2016]

in order to encourage discussion of the role of sex. Younger students might explore why a boy should not look up a girl's skirt, but older students would view hard-core material to confront, for example, whether normal women should "shave" or make the typical screeching moans that porno "actresses" make. Dame Jenni said simply condemning pornography is naive because too much money is at stake. [The Independent (London), 10-12-2016]



THE PASSING PARADE ■ (1) The world's first constantly flowing (and free!) "wine fountain" opened in Abruzzo, Italy, in October, to help draw tourists and pilgrims who make the trek south from the Vatican to view the cathedral where remains of the disciple Thomas are kept. Operators said they hope the fountain will not become a home to "drunkards." (2) In September, the world's first (legal) beer pipeline opened, pumping 12,000 bottles' worth an hour from the Halve Maan brewery in Bruges, Belgium, to its bottling plant two miles away (and thus sparing visitors to the historic city the sight of tanker trucks cluttering the cobblestone streets). The pipeline was partly funded by private citizens offered "free beer for life" for their donations. [The Local (Rome), 10-122016] [New York Times, 9-17-2016]

■ New York's prestigious Bronx High School of Science enrolls some of the "best and brightest" students in the city -- some of whom (perhaps rebelling against the "nerd" label) for the last two years have held unauthorized, consensual fistfights (a "fight club") in a field near the school, according to an October New York Daily News report. Students at the school (which has produced eight Nobel Prize winners and eight National Medal of Science honorees)

TOO QUICKLY PROMOTED ■ Nathan Lawwill, 32, from Lansing, Michigan, was arrested in Tunisia in October after emigrating as a recent Muslim convert, speaking little Arabic -- which did not restrain him (a one-time Christian) from now being the Islamic Messiah, the "gift to Muslims," "Mahdi to Muslims and Messiah to the Jews." "I am going to be the center of the world very quickly," he wrote on Facebook. He and his brother Patrick were found by police on Oct. 25 "unwashed," and were detained on suspicion of terrorism. [The Daily Beast, 10-27-2016]

RECURRING THEMES ■ Joining some classic cases of sentencing overkill that have populated News of the Weird through the years: In October in San Marcos, Texas, jurors apparently had enough of recidivist drunk driver Jose Marin, 64, who had just racked up conviction No. 8 and so sentenced him to spend the next 99 years in prison and (perhaps more horrifyingly) sober. And in Fresno, California, Rene Lopez, 41, convicted of raping his daughter over a four-year period beginning when she was 16, was sentenced by a Fresno Superior Court judge to prison until the year 3519 (1,503 years from now). [KXAN-TV (Austin), 10-13-2016] [Associated Press via Los Angeles Times, 10-22-2016]

NEWS OF THE WEIRD CLASSIC (MAY 2012) ■ Awesome Achievement: William Todd, traveling by bus, faced a nine-hour layover in Nashville, Tennessee, on April 9 (2012) -- and with time on his hands, managed to (allegedly) commit at least 11 felonies, one after another, while he waited: shooting up a restaurant, setting it on fire, robbing four people at a bar, carjacking, breaking into a law office and defecating on a desk, trolling hotel rooms seeking theft opportunities, and stealing a taxicab and robbing the driver. He was captured at Opryland, where he had hid in water up to his nose. [WSMV-TV (Nashville), 4-9-2012]

BRIGHT IDEAS Prominent British radio host Dame Jenni Murray suggested in October that the U.K. scrap traditional "sex education" courses in school and instead show pornographic videos for classes to "analyze it in exactly the same way as (they analyze Jane Austen)"

BEETHOVEN AND LONDON AT THE BPO Violinist Tianwa Yang returns to the BPO to perform Beethoven BY JAN JEZIORO


uffalo Philharmonic Orchestra music director JoAnn Falletta returns to the podium at Kleinhans Music Hall for a pair of concerts this weekend, on Saturday at 8pm and Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm. The program includes Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 61, the greatest concerto for violin in the repertoire, and the colorfully programmatic Symphony No. 2 in G major, “London” by Ralph Vaughan Williams, the dean of 20th century English composers. Chinese born violinist Tianwa Yang, who now resides in Germany, returns to the perform with the BPO for the first time since October 2010, when she was the soloist in The Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto, one of the most famous modern works of Chinese music. Composed in 1959 by two composers, Chen Gang and He Zhanhao, the work only gained popularity in the late 1970’s after drastic restrictions imposed by the Cultural Revolution on all aspects of Western culture started to loosen. Raised in Beijing, Tianwa Yang began studying violin at the age of four, winning six competitions as a young child. At the age of ten, she was accepted to study at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and within one year Hong Kong media described the young artist as “a pride of China.” Yang recorded the complete 24 Paganini Caprices at age 13, making her the youngest artist to ever record these virtuosic showpieces. Following up on that early triumph, her recent release, and the latest of her 15 CD’s released on the Naxos label, of the even more challenging complete solo sonatas for violin by Eugène Ysaÿe immediately won several awards. Yang has performed in concert halls across 4

Europe, Australasia and North America. Recently, she gave her Canadian debut performances in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Calgary with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and she debuted in New York’s Rose Theater as part of the same tour. Upcoming debuts include those with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Slovak Philharmonic, Bratislava. Joseph Joachim, the greatest violinist of 19th century Germany, once famously declared that while “The Germans have four violin concertos (i.e. those by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Bruch and Brahms) the greatest, most uncompromising is Beethoven’s”. Amazingly, the violin concerto was less than totally successful at its 1806 premiere performance by Franz Clement, Beethoven’s young friend who was widely regarded as

one of the finest violinists in Europe, and who was also a fellow composer. Beginning in 1844, the then twelve-year-old prodigy Joachim, who first performed the work at the Philharmonic Society in London under the baton of Felix Mendelssohn was instrumental in reviving Beethoven’s masterpiece (talk about a historic performance that would make any music lover drool!) and more than a century later, there are very few classical music lovers who would challenge Joachim’s ranking as to the primacy of Beethoven’s work. Although the present situation in our country could not have been anyone’s wildest prediction at the time this concert program was finalized, I’m certain that many members of the audience, including this writer, will find some solace in the broadly affirmative humanity of Beethoven’s music. Ralph Vaughan Williams was inspired to compose his Symphony No. 2 in G major,

“London” shortly before the outbreak of World War I by his friend and fellow composer George Butterworth, who was subsequently killed on the Somme in 1916. Although the work received its successful premiere in March of 1914 in Queens Hall in London, an acoustically superb venue which would not survive the Blitz in World War II, Vaughan Williams afterwards sent the score to the conductor Fritz Busch in Germany, and it disappeared in the upheaval caused by the outbreak of World War I. The composer later reconstructed the score from the orchestral parts in 1915, but it went through several more revisions before being published for a second time in 1936, in its final form. Vaughan Williams initially insisted that his symphony was not a programmatic work, but rather absolute music. However, he allowed the English conductor Albert Coates to provide detailed descriptions of the work’s movements for a 1920 performance, which the musical public has generally been more than happy to accept as a verbal guide to what is happening musically. Interestingly, the work has only been programmed twice previously by the BPO, most recently in 2004 under the baton of then associate conductor Ron Spigelman. Tickets and mInformation: 885-5000 or


THE PRIVATE EYE By Bryan K Vaughn (Author) and Marcos Martin (Illustrator) Image Comics Inc. (Publisher) Reviewed by Jack Dumpert.


panish artist Marcos Martin told the website, “As an exercise for all reviewers, I’d propose they start by dropping the habit of structuring their reviews in two parts, where they discuss the story, plot and dialogue in the first half and leave a second half to go over the art…” Here at Graphic Traffic we aim to please. In the case of “The Private Eye” that’s easy because Martin’s dynamic art is the best part. He draws in the European style, realistic and proportional with a

hint of cartoon that underscores that it is illustration. In this mashup of California noir and sci-fi, veteran writer Brian K. Vaughn’s loopy premise - decades in the future everyone will have a secret identity and no one will go out in public without their disguise - provides Martin the opportunity to design hundreds of wildly imaginative costumes. “The Private Eye” originally appeared online in landscape format. The conventions of graphic fiction are in portrait format. Martin successfully surmounts the challenge of reconceiving how a story flows across a page. The vibrant coloring is provided by Martin’s partner, Muntsa Vicente. May their life together be as successful as their collaboration is here. | nov 17 nov 23

couldn’t vote for Trump you helped, too.

George Wallace of Alabama are waving Confederate flags and celebrating the election of a presidential candidate

TRUMP-YES Dear Artvoice editors, We have to support Donald Trump so he can hopefully perform well as President. He won the election, and a large segment of the U.S. population has spoken. I agree with many of the policies he wants to implement, and I believe he will stop the nasty rhetoric that he used in the primaries and the general election. I am convinced his rhetoric was contrived to draw attention to himself and away from other candidates. Every time he said something controversial he received extensive and free media coverage and he was in the spotlight. He played the media very well. The next step is for President-Elect Trump to fill Cabinet and advisory positions. Due to his lack of political, government and military experience the appointment of highly qualified people to key positions will be critical in determining the success of his Presidency. Early information on his possible appointees indicates he will surround himself with qualified and competent people. Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, and others being mentioned are potential viable candidates. Haters should not be included in the Trump administration. I look forward to a successful Trump Presidency that embodies the unbiased spirit of the American people. Donald Moskowitz Londonderry

If you voted for Donald Trump, congratulations. He lost the popular vote, but won in the Electoral College. Of course, you didn’t accomplish this alone. If you didn’t vote because “both parties are the same,” you helped. If you didn’t vote because you were a Bernie supporter, you helped. If you are African-American and didn’t vote because Barack Obama was not on the ballot, you helped. If you are a Democrat who didn’t vote because Hillary Clinton was or, was not, “fill in the blank,” you helped. If you didn’t vote because you are a Republican who is not a racist, misogynistic, xenophobe, who

Federal jurists have lifetime tenure. Since President Obama has been in office, the Republican Senate has refused to confirm the vast majority of his nominees to the federal bench. There are many vacancies at all levels. When Trump and the Republican Senate fill these positions with ultra-conservative judges, these people will be interpreting the law for the next 30-40 years. A Supreme Court loaded with Trump

appointed Justices might say with straight faces, “Unfortunately we are overturning previous Supreme Court decisions. We find no Constitutional right for a woman to control her own body. We find no Constitutional right for samesex people to wed. We find no Constitutional right for people to be able to vote conveniently and without intimidation. We find no Constitutional right for people to have clean water to drink and clean air to breathe. We find no Constitutional right for other religious groups, or atheists, to stop a church from celebrating its faith on federal land. But cheer up, “ Since there is a possibility that at any time, any citizen may be called to serve in a “wellregulated militia,” feel free to own all the firearms and ammunition you want. Now go and have a great day”. During this campaign people have focused on shiny objects: terrorism, immigration, jobs. These things must be dealt with, however the underpinning of the United States is a fair, equitable justice system. Without that we have nothing and we will not solve the other problems either. If Donald Trump was elected President due to your action, or inaction, thanks for nothing. To my grandson, Blake, I’m sorry. Grandma and I wanted you to grow up in a country where the government protected your health and personal freedom. We voted for Hillary Clinton. Larry Finkelstein East Amherst Dear ArtVoice Editors, My name is (Ms.) Stacey Bowers and I am a resident of Buffalo, New York. I'm writing to express my serious concerns about President-elect Trump's plan to appoint Steve Bannon to his cabinet. As you may know, Bannon once owned Breitbart News, which is known to be a site that foments bigotry among the "alt-right" or white nationalists.. While there, Bannon oversaw a number of bigoted articles, with titles such as: • "Gabby Giffords: The gun control movement's human shield" • "Planned Parenthood's body count is up to half a Holocaust" • "Bill Kristol: Republican spoiler, renegade

Jew" • "Lesbian bridezillas bully bridal shop owner" • Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy. As a Buffalo resident whose nearest neighbors are a People, Inc., home for the developmentally disabled, a home of Burmese refugees and several gay men and lesbians, including Carol Speser, who performed the first gay and lesbian wedding in New York State, I fear that the appointment of such a bigoted person to such an important office will have tragic ramifications on our most vulnerable citizens. Please join me in denouncing this appointment and in emphasizing how important it is to be tolerant of our fellow humans, regardless of their gender, race, creed, ability, sexuality, or otherwise. Many thanks, as always, for your attention and your representation! Best, Stacey Bowers Buffalo

counterculture when his debut album, Songs of Leonard Cohen, was released in 1967. Long before his fellow Canadians Joni Mitchell and Neil Young had made their first solo statements, he was embraced as an avatar of the burgeoning singer/ songwriter movement. Even into his 80s, Cohen seemed invigorated, working with power and intention all the way to the end. His final album, You Want It Darker, was released just weeks before his passing. Its title track featured the refrain “Hineni, hineni, I’m ready my Lord.” A fitting bit of closure. Taylor McPhail


LEONARD COHEN Artvoice editors When Leonard Cohen’s death was announced on November 10, the music world mourned its poet king. True, Bob Dylan has always been deified as the man who broke ground for all the singer/ songwriters who followed in his wake, but even Dylan gave it up to Cohen, once telling the Canadian songsmith in no uncertain terms that he was “number one.” Looking back at Cohen’s half-century of communiqués from the soul, Dylan’s assessment is tough to dispute. Cohen became an unlikely hero of the

I was one of many in New York State who were disillusioned and shocked when the Empire State Pride Agenda decided to declare ‘mission accomplished’ and close its doors. The idea of any lobbying group saying its work is over is ludicrous. There is still so much work to be done and so many issues to be resolved both now and for what might come in the future. So with thankfulness and relief I was happy to see some people, including folks from the former Pride Agenda, try to create a new lobbying group Equality New York. They have my heartiest wishes for success. I also hope that they don’t make the same mistakes as Empire State Pride Agenda did.

In 2002 when I retired from the New York State Crime Victims Board I was honored to get an award from the New York City Anti-Violence Project. Doing claims investigation for LGBT crime victims both upstate and downstate I saw an incredible difference between the large metropolitan areas with an organized gay community and some small town where being gay is still “a love that dare not speak its name.” I recall an assault in the village of Livonia, New York in Livingston County where the only reason I found out it was a bias anti-gay attack was because the victim/advocate the in DA’s office was from that village and knew the story. Empire State Pride Agenda was always money hungry. They cut off relations with WNY because the Buffalo Brunch wasn’t bringing in enough cash. If the great metropolitan area of Buffalo was cut because it wasn’t giving them enough Benjamins then what hope for support could a little place like Livonia in Livingston County have? We saw from the results in this recent presidential election how a progressive message of inclusiveness fell on deaf ears in the rural areas of Upstate New York. Yet that is where out battle has to be won. At least there’s a gay community in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse etc. to be connected to if one wants. Where could that young man from Livonia turn for support in his crisis? Every so often I heard about stories from the rural areas of upstate and I would send the information along to Empire State Pride Agenda and it fell on deaf ears. There was never any attempt to organize rurally. I mean what could a Livonia Pride group that probably met in someone’s living room do for Empire State

Pride Agenda financially? That message of inaction from Empire State Pride Agenda was “we can’t be bothered with you.” Yet being gay is the loneliest feeling in the world in these small towns. It’s why so many young people can’t wait to get out. Hopefully some of our larger LGBT organizations and foundations will help Equality New York and one way they could help is funding for one or more organizers whose job it will be to search New York State’s hinterlands for an LGBT community and help nurture it. Just the fact that someone actually cares what is going on in our state’s Livonias would be received with indescribable gratitude. These are the folks that will spread our message in that region, maybe convince some hard case Republican Senator that our LGBT lives are real and our issues have merit. Or organize to kick them out if they’re not convinced. Maybe they’ll look beyond the votes the Conservative Party gives them in the fall or the nodding approval of various fundamentalist churches in their districts. After the last election this is a message that has to reach the small towns. We have to give all the LGBT young people in this state who are living and trying to survive in our Livonias of New York State a sense of pride and the knowledge that someone actually cares about them and the struggle they have.

THEATER | THEATRICALLY SPEAKING “I never tire of singing them!” he insists. “Unlike in the West End or on Broadway, with a concert schedule, it’s not as if I perform them every night. When I return to these songs, they are always fresh again. And they are, after all, great songs to sing – and who wouldn’t enjoy the audience reaction!” A colossal hit, Les Miserables, which has been running continuously in London since 1985, inarguably changed Wilkinson’s life.

Colm Wilkinson: Broadway, Christmas & Beyond



olm Wilkinson, the IrishCanadian star of London and Broadway returns to UB’s Center for the Arts on Saturday, November 26th at 8 p.m. along with a seven-piece band to perform a concert called “Broadway, Christmas W& Beyond.” Wilkinson originated the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables and was actually the first performer to sing the title role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera while the landmark musical was still being developed.


nov 17- nov 23 |

It is guaranteed that during this evening of music and stories, Wilkinson will perform the two songs with which he is most closely associated, “Music of the Night” from Phantom, and his signature song, “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables. Some performers chafe when their fans demand to sing the same tunes at every concert. Speaking to Wilkinson by telephone I ask about his feelings toward these two songs, which he has sung thousands of times.

“We had no idea that the show was going to be such a big success,” says Wilkinson. “In fact, many people don’t know that in London, the show was not well received by the critics at first. It was panned. It was the audiences who embraced the show and made it a success. Very quickly, we were booked a year in advance. That was very gratifying, and I feel very lucky. In New York, on the other hand, we got rave reviews all around – with the exact same show! You never know what is going to happen. After that, I never read reviews anymore, because if you believe the good ones, you have to believe the bad ones. I just listen to the audience!” Wilkinson enjoys performing at UB’s Center for the Arts, where he has appeared a number of times.

“It is a very warm hall,” he says. “It seats between 1,500 and 2,000 people, which is not so large that you lose a feeling of connection to the audience. It feels very intimate, actually, and I really like to feel connected to the audience. I don’t just sing. I tell stories, and some corny jokes, and I like to hear the audience reactions and participation. And for the music, yes, I sing ‘Bring Him Home,’ but you will also hear some show tunes, and some Beatles songs, some country, and some rock ‘n’ roll. I like to mix it up. I want the audience to feel as if they are at what we call a céilí [pronounced KEL-lee], where everybody just gets together and has a great time!” Wilkinson reveals one special treat for the evening. He will perform Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Cohen, the great Canadian singer, songwriter, poet, and novelist died last week at the age of 82. Wilkinson knew him. “I was very upset by his death,” confides Wilkinson. “He was such a humble man. He had such intellect. He was erudite, and dear, and warm, and yes, he was flawed – he was truly human. And when he died, I thought I just have to do this!” Wilkinson has long kept a rigorous concert schedule. He reveals, however, that audiences should not depend on him keeping this up forever. “I have really been thinking about getting back into the studio and recording some of my own material,” he says. “I enjoy touring. I will be back in Ireland in a few weeks, and I always enjoy the hometown welcome I get there. But I have really been thinking that I should stop for a while and focus on my own songs. I will have to think about that.” In the meantime, fans have at least one more opportunity to visit with the remarkable Colm Wilkinson at UB’s Center for the Arts. Prepare to sit back and enjoy a real céilí!


In the Midnight Hour: The Life & Soul of Wilson Pickett. by Tony Fletcher 328p. illus. Oxford, hardcover,published November 1, 2016. This biography of soul singer Wilson Pickett (1941–2006) is distinctive for its voluminous and nonjudgmental accounting of his life, from early childhood on, and of the complex early days of rhythm-andblues recording. Pickett, always an extraordinary singer, was also troubled (and trouble), and violence (and guns) plays a more major part in this opus than is customary. In a book remarkable for its copious family research, Fletcher, a true devotee of the music, gives us the complete Pickett, more so than Mark Ribowsky did for Otis Redding, or James McBride has done for James Brown. Much is about the people (Jerry Wexler, Ahmet Ertegun) and the labels (Atlantic and, egregiously, RCA). Fletcher is quick to acknowledge the role of frequent collaborator Bobby Womack and, for example, the spectacular guitar work (on “Hey Jude”) by a very young Duane Allman, though the focus is on Pickett throughout, both through his glory days, the turbulence and occasional bright moments afterward, and to his long, sad decline. — Mark Levi

Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook. Marley, Ziggy (author). Oct. 2016. 120p. illus. Akashic, hardcover, This slim volume reflects the food Marley grew up with in Jamaica, including traditional dishes heavy on fish and Caribbean spice as well as the largely vegetarian Rastafarian diet called “Ital,” which emphasizes juices and healthy eating. The musician, his family, and a few well-known chefs all contributed recipes, which are vibrant with fresh vegetables, herbs, and signature Jamaican ingredients like allspice berries and Scotch bonnet peppers. Brief chapter introductions offer personal insights about Marley’s life and upbringing as they relate to featured dishes. Coconut seems to be a favorite flavor, whether as milk in coconut curry squash soup or freshly shredded on oatmeal amped with nuts and seeds. It’s the cooking oil of choice, too; however, the book suggests using Marley’s own line of coconut oils and hemp seeds, Ziggy Marley Organics, which undermines the integrity of this collection. Readers will enjoy the vivid, colorful photos of the food and Marley’s family. — Alison Neumer Lara | nov 17 nov 23

hey say a prophet is never recognized in his own country, sometimes musicians, too. New Yorker Brian Setzer had little success playing in his own country. Gigging around his hometown NYC area Setzer went unnoticed. Frustrated he and his two band mates sold their instruments for one-way tickets to London and renamed their trio Stray Cats because that’s what they were. Suddenly everything was different. Setzer did the seemingly impossible. He successfully countered the London punk scene that dominated the England at the time. Fashion-wise Setzer looked punk with loads of tattoos, black leather and peircings, but instead of playing music that was the raw angst of punk Setzer reached back to the 1950s when that angst was filtered through the unbridled joy of early hip shaking rock and roll, and he was great at it. He could dance, he could sing, he looked cool as shit and most important the boy could rock.

The band’s early hits “Stray Cat Strut” and “Rock This Town” were a refreshing blast of the new rockabilly sound and Setzer’s clean guitar licks were signature to that sound. Any music fan who hasn’t seen the videos of these songs from the early days of MTV owes it to themselves to see them.

his big band is a natural and wonderful evolution from the stripped down trio of Stray Cats. “Jump, Jive An’ Wail” Setzer is bringing that 19-piece big band to the UB Center for the Arts for the Brian Setzer Orchestra’s 13th Annual Christmas Rocks Tour. Setzer’s trademark guitar work and vocal stylings are matched with his Orchestra’s rockin’ big-band horn arrangements creating an unbelievable combination guaranteed to rock you into the holiday spirit.

“Stray Cat Strut” “Rock This Town” Stray Casts eventually disbanded and Setzer’s rockabilly sound morphed into the 19-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra. This time Setzer reached even farther back to the 1940s when the excitement was swing bands and jump music. Again, Setzer tapped into the madcap energy of past music that once had young people doing somersaults on the dance floor. When you see the video of his Grammy winning cover of the Louie Prima song “Jump, Jive An’ Wail” it’s easy to see how

all the same guidelines as the other local cancer treatment groups.

“I’m currently in remission, and my medical care team has done an outstanding job for me,” said McGinnis who has to undergo constant screening to make sure he’s still okay. “Thankfully, my doctors tell me there’s an 80 percent chance it [the cancer] won’t return, but now I must decide what to do with this threat of the loss of health insurance if I remain with my CCS team, this after paying $579.62 a month for four years to Independent Health for my family insurance plan. The last thing I want to do now is to find a new care team with another care provider to see me through this.”

“We’ve asked them from the beginning, when the first analysis was done in the first quarter of 2015, to provide us with the data,” said Dr. Yi. “We’ve said, give us the data and let us see...maybe we can learn from our peers. But they denied giving us the data.”

McGinnis, a pastor and former chief of staff with the Niagara County Legislature and also a former personnel officer for Niagara County, has reached out to the state Dept. of Health for guidance but was told to contact his provider. McGinnis said he wasn’t advised about the insurance cutoff until he received a letter dated Oct. 28 from Independent Health, telling him that his doctors were being dropped from the insurance network and that the health insurer would help him find a new care provider. He says his calls to Independent Health have not provided much relief other than he needed to contact another provider even though that’s not what he wants.

James McGinnis, CSS Oncology cancer patient


s we reported last week, more than 500 cancer patients throughout Western New York are facing the loss of their medical insurance coverage from Independent Health if they stay with their current care provider, CCS Oncology, after Jan. 1, the date when CCS oncologists are slated to be dropped from Independent Health’s provider network in a fee dispute. James McGinnis, 59, of North Tonawanda, is one of those cancer patients who is going to have to find a whole new team of cancer doctors and care providers if the cutoff takes place as scheduled even though he

has been treated by CCS oncologists since he was diagnosed with metastastic squamous neck cancer in August of 2015 and told he may have only a few weeks to live.

“I feel let down by this, after all I’ve been through, and I’m sure the nearly 600 other cancer patients with CCS feel the same way,” he said. He plans to meet with his CCS team on Dec. 15 to decide what to do.

“There are close to 600 people out there [cancer patients] like me who are being told to find a new cancer team,” said McGinnis during an interview this week. “We’re caught in the middle of this dispute and I don’t know what’s going to happen and I’m definitely very concerned.”

As we reported last week, CCS Oncology feels it is being dropped from the Independent Health network based on flawed data that suggests it is charging more than its peers for cancer treatment. Despite repeated requests, Independent Health has refused to allow CCS Oncology to review the cost analysis data.

McGinnis has been through 33 rounds of radiation and three rounds of eighthour chemo sessions at the CCS treatment center on Williams Rd. in Niagara Falls while under the care of CCS oncologists Alvin Panahon and

Dr. Wom Sam Yi, the CEO and chief medical examiner of CCS Oncology, says that data showing CCS’s costs were as much as 50 percent higher for treatment of lung and breast cancer has to be flawed because CCS follows

A clearly frustrated Dr. Yi, who leads the CCS Oncology group with offices and treatment facilities throughout the region, has concluded “they [IH] are trying to put us out of business,” and CCS will go to court within days to fight the cutoff. Dr. Yi said 30 to 40 percent of CCS’s cancer patients will lose coverage from Independent Health if CCS is dropped from the network. CCS attorney Paul Joyce of Buffalo said the health care provider will be going to court very shortly to fight Independent Health on the decision to drop CCS oncologists from the provider network. Independent Health says its action was the result of a strategic decision “to move away from the inefficient and costly fee-for-service payment system toward a network of select oncolgoy specialists who have agreed to a value-based reimbursement model.” Independent Health says it has been able to work with other local oncology providers but has not been able to agree on such an arrangement with CCS, which negotiates on behalf of its affiliated physicians. It must be noted that Amherst-based Indepdent Health ended last year with a$44 million loss on premium revenue of $2 billion, including operating losses of $49.4 million. It was a second straight year of operating losses. While CCS Oncology prepares to go to court, the many cancer patients like Jim McGinnis who are currently being treated by CCS oncologists are not only in a fight for survival but are faced with the problem of possibly having to change doctors in the middle of that fight. As Jim McGinnis said, it is indeed a stressful time for families already under great stress from their battle against cancer.

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet brings Bram Stoker’s Dracula to life under the inventive choreography of Mark Godden. Set to a glorious score by Classical master Gustav Mahler, with opulent sets and costumes, flying bats, gargoyles and mysterious transformations, RWB’s “Dracula” is gothic ballet at its best. For over one hundred years, the public has been both horrified and fascinated with the character “Dracula” and this ballet portrays those emotions that in dance. The 77 year old Royal Winnipeg Ballet holds the double distinction of being Canada’s premiere ballet company and the longest continuously operating ballet company in North America. They have garnered both critical and audience acclaim with their versatility, technical excellence and a captivating style. They have performed “Dracula” since 1998.

Guitar master Joe Satriani has called Adrian Legg “the best acoustic guitarist he’s ever heard.” Born in London, Legg’s music is a colorful blend of gentle contemplative ballads, snappy and percussive jams, rock-edged electricity and hints of folk music, Irish jig and church influences. In short, he is a master guitarist of the highest order. “Some artists have problems reproducing their recorded sound live," said Legg, "but my problems are the other way around, that is, actually recording the live sound as well as it works onstage.” Obviously, Legg’s connection with the crowd is what propels him to greatness. Legg is also a commentator-at-large for National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.
