big pharma is bilking the american people


mericans pay far more for prescription drugs than the people of any other industrialized nation. Alluding to this fact, Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser — who joined a multi-state lawsuit — tweeted: “If you are angry about rising drug prices, you should be. Particularly because a major cause of price increases is illegal collusion by generic drug companies.” An example: One brand-name drug, Acthar, a drug used to treat a rare condition called infantile spasms. In 2001, Acthar sold for about $40 a vial. By 2018, it sold for more than $40,000 — an increase of 100,000 percent. This week on “60 Minutes,” correspondent Bill Whitaker reports on a lawsuit against dozens of generic drug manufacturers. According to the suit, the price of hundreds of generic prescription drugs jumped 50 to 1000 percent in a single year —and plaintiffs say the drug makers colluded to do it. Manufacturers have denied allegations of collusion. A far-reaching lawsuit filed by the attorneys general of more than 40 states accused some of the nation’s largest generic drug manufacturers of conspiring to inflate prices, in some cases by more than 1,000 percent. “We have hard evidence that shows the generic drug industry perpetrated a multi-billion dollar

fraud on the American people,” Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, whose state led the probe into the companies’ practices, said in a statement. “We have emails, text messages, telephone records, and former company insiders that we believe will prove a multi-year conspiracy to fix prices and divide market share for huge numbers of generic drugs,” said Tong. The suit names 20 major drug manufacturers — including Pfizer, Teva, Novartis and Mylan — as well as more than a dozen senior executives, who the complaint accuses of deleting evidence after the states began their investigation in 2014.

Walters weaves poignant issues into latest mystery ‘Living Lies’ tackles mental health By Elise Cooper Military Press


iving Lies” by Natalie Walters brings to life the characters with an emotionally charged story. With thrilling suspense, threads of romance and important messages about removing the stigma of mental health and depression this book seems to have it all, including an actionpacked crime mystery. The crime revolves around murder, drugs, art and dealing with mental health issues. Lane Walton, widowed at the age of 28, journeys back to her hometown in hopes of a new start for herself and her young son, Noah. The small Southern town of Walton, Georgia, would seem like the place to begin again. She is hopeful she can overcome her depression and to find acceptance. But life gets in the way, which happens after Lane discovers a dead woman. Needing to work with Walton’s newest deputy, Charlie Lynch, to uncover the truth behind the murder, Lane hopes that saving the life of another is worth the cost of revealing her darkest secret. Struggling with depression she wishes the illness will not define her. Although depression affects countless people there is also a stigma surrounding it, in which many people suffer in silence. Her family’s lack of understanding isolates her further, making it harder for her to overcome the feeling that she is flawed. It’s a battle that often occurs daily and can be triggered unexpectedly. This is why she can connect with a Vietnam veteran Miguel Roa, who is also suffering, but from PTSD. Also very potent is how readers share their journey and experiences, and are reminded how unfairly Vietnam veterans were treated when they returned. This story has no shortage of action intertwined with messages about PTSD and depression. Readers will understand the harsh realities of life in this nail-biting crime novel. Elise Cooper: Why the military angle? Natalie Walters: I have a heart for those who are serving, since I am a military spouse for 22 years. I wasn’t just an author researching the military or law enforcement livelihood. I was the wife, daughter, granddaughter, sister and niece drawing details from personal history that have shaped me as a person that includes the hardships they have gone through. I wanted a military influence in my story, which is why I made the main male character, Deputy

2 May 15, 2019

Charles Lynch, a former Marine. EC: Did you know anyone who fought in Vietnam? NW: I have three uncles who fought in the Vietnam War. One was injured and one is still haunted by memories. It’s not a war that I see often written about, and I used my character, Miguel Roa, to shed light on some of the more tragic effects of the war that I discovered through articles, documentaries, and family history. EC: How did you come up with the mystery? NW: I wanted something that would force Lane to reveal her truth. I used art since it helps those who suffer but can also be a catalyst for a crime. I reached out to a friend who works in the DEA. He gave me information of how people can smuggle drugs. EC: Depression almost seems like a character in the book. NW: At the time I was thinking of the story, our daughter was suffering from depression, suicidal thoughts and cutting. We never thought we would have to experience something like this in our lives. Writing this book became therapy for me. I pulled and drew upon from what was happening to our family and hopefully made it authentic to the story. EC: How would you describe Lane? NW: An introvert who grew up in a Southern socialite family with a tender

heart. She grew up with depression but tries to keep it a secret because of the stigma surrounding it. She has internal strength that keeps her going as she fights to survive it daily. On good days she is not thinking about it, but on bad days it kind of manifests itself into her life. It sometimes gets to a point where it can be devastating. EC: Did you live in a small town? NW: Lane Kent’s story actually started in Northern Virginia, where our family was living when I first began writing her story. It wasn’t until our family was reassigned to Coastal Georgia that I really began to see the setting for “Living Lies” come to life. We once lived in a small town in Georgia 20 miles south of Savannah. I used the atmosphere to make the setting for this book. I wanted to make it realistic to the coastal Georgia region. EC: How would you describe the relationship? NW: Lane has some resistance because of her past. Charlie is very supportive of her. This allows Lane to open up with him. They help each other to gain confidence. EC: How would you describe Charlie? NW: Encouraging, steadfast, devoted and loyal. EC: The fathers seem a little harsh. NW: They were a bit hard on the

characters. They were rigid. I based Charlie’s dad on the fact he was a Marine. My dad was also a Marine and he had pretty rigid guidelines. Regarding Lane’s father, I based him on the mixed feedback we got from friends and family. Through her father, I wanted to show how it is a struggle for a lot of people to deal with depression. They need to learn they need patience instead of narrow mindedness. I had him transition as he recognizes that it is a treatable disease. EC: What do you want the readers to get out of the book? NW: An entertaining story with a good mystery. I want to remind those who might be suffering from depression or anxiety that they are not alone. They are seen, and have purpose, a reason to fight and live. My daughter did not want to tell anyone because she did not want to be a burden. But no one should have to struggle by themselves. Everyone has to be open, honest and compassionate. The reality is that many of us do not have perfect lives. I hope this story stays with readers long after they finished the book. EC: The next book? NW: It is titled “Deadly Deceit.” The story will feature Deputy Ryan Frost and the reporter Vivian DeMarco. Vivian has a person die in front of her, and then works with Ryan to find out what happened. They are a lighter couple than Lane and Charlie and like to play off one another. It comes out the end of the year. •

Spatz tells her story of ‘surviving birkenau’ By Jeri Jacquin Military Press

On DVD from Ron Small, the Holocaust Education Film Foundation and Dreamscape comes the story of the ultimate survivor with “Surviving Birkenau: The Dr. Susan Spatz Story.” Dr. Spatz is a woman who has no problem telling her story exactly how it is. Born in Vienna, Austria, her parents moved to Berlin, Germany, to work in their uncles’ greeting card company. The business was very successful and the family lived well. She recalls her father being a man who loved to dance and mother a woman who was always impeccably dressed. In 1935, Jewish students had to leave state schools, and she didn’t quite understand what was happening. In 1938, Adolf Hitler had taken control of their home country of Austria. That is also when she noticed that Nazi soldiers were beginning to harass Jewish men and women in hideous ways. That is when Susan’s father had to find a way out because visas were not to be had. In August 1939, her father left

on the last plane to Brussels, Belgium, to settle while Susan and her mother waited. A town was created called Theresienstadt Bauschowitz and two months later it was inhabited by Jews. That was the beginning of the Jewish Council that became part of a selection committee which had one of her moth-

ers’ friends there to help. Once they learned that it wouldn’t help, Susan’s mother left and the young 19-year-old girl stayed behind. In 1943 she was to be transferred by train through the large gates of what was to become the Birkenau concentration camp. Immediately everyone that ar-

rived were processed, given clothing and tattooed. Her number is 34042. Food was scarce and lessons of being in the prison camp were every moment of their lives. The women prison guards, according to Susan, were worse than the male guards, so they had to find solace with one another. Fate would come into play as she came into contact with a young girl she knew in Prague. That encounter helped her get to the administration offices and the construction department. By 1944, Susan is sent on the Death March, and the only thing that saved her was after being told quietly to load up on clothing and food or else they would not survive. Finally put on a train, they were once again told to huddle together and they would make it. She would see other trains with people who froze in their train cars. Staying alive, they were finally liberated and when they came to an American checkpoint they realized the world didn’t know about extermination camps. Susan was finally free, but where Birkenau, continued on Page 9

A COMMITMENT TO SERVICE AND EDUCATION When Jake Messier dropped out of college in his junior year to join the U.S. Marine Corps, he promised his dad that he would see the world and that he’d finish college. Messier served as combat correspondent, traveling to 43 countries and covering stories about fellow servicemembers. During his last assignment in Tokyo, he made good on the second part of his promise too, completing a bachelor’s degree from UMUC. At age 45, he founded Olderpreneur Coach, a consulting service for older entrepreneurs, and HEARD Strategy & Storytelling, a marketing firm that created jobs for furloughed employees during the recent government shutdown.

Bolts shore up defense in draft

By Art Garcia Jr. Military Press

or the second consecutive year, the Chargers addressed immediate needs on the defensive side of the ball in the draft. Looking to fill voids at defensive tackle, safety and linebacker, General Manager Tom Telesco used five of his seven picks shoring up the defense. Despite using their first four picks on defense in 2018, it was clear a serious upgrade was needed following their blowout loss to the Patriots in the playoffs. Although one cannot truly judge a draft class for at least two or three years after the players get acclimated to the NFL, many analysts assign a letter grade immediately following the draft based on their own player evaluations. In this article we will focus on the grades Chad Reuter, Pro Football Focus (PFF), Reuters News Group and Mel Kiper Jr. gave the Chargers.

Chad Reuter (

Draft picks: Rnd. 1. Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame (No. 28 overall); Rnd. 2. Nasir Adderley, S, Deleware (No. 60); Rnd. 3. Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls (No. 91); Rnd. 4. Drue Tranquill, LB, Notre Dame (No. 130); Rnd. 5. Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota St. (No. 166); Rnd. 6. Emeke Egbule, OLB, Houston (No. 200); Rnd. 7. Cortez Broughton, DT, Cincinnati (No. 242). Draft analysis: “The Chargers ignored needs at offensive tackle and in the secondary to address the need at DT in Round 1. Tillery is a load when allowed to get upfield, especially when he keeps his hips low to push through blocks. They were apparently not as worried as some teams about the shoulder surgery the tackle had before the draft. “Adderley is a versatile cover freesafety prospect who can replace the released Jahleel Addae and will complement Derwin James quite well. Pipkins is a project player who has potential as an offensive tackle but was picked a round or two early because they felt the need to find one before Day 3. “I projected Stick to go to the Chargers in the sixth round, but they jumped on him a round earlier to compete with Tyrod Taylor and Cardale Jones for a roster spot. Tranquill meets a need at linebacker, and Broughton is an active interior defender.” Overall grade: B+

Pro Football Focus

of football – which still doesn’t make a ton of sense – but Renner didn’t factor in Tillery’s love for reading or traveling into his evaluation. Shocking some, he kept his eyes on the film, advanced statistical production and the grading. “The Bolts got another PFF favorite for a very cheap price, stealing Derwin James at pick No. 17 a year ago and Tillery at No. 28 this year.” Day 2: “Delaware safety Nasir Adderley received a first-round grade from PFF this offseason. The small-school product lit up the Senior Bowl. He also earned a 90.3 overall grade with Delaware a year ago, and his 89.9 2018 coverage grades led all draft-eligible safeties. “Sioux Falls’ Trey Pipkins didn’t make his way onto PFF’s final top-250 list for this year’s draft.” Day 3: “Scooping up former Notre Dame off-ball linebacker Drue Tranquill at pick No. 130, Los Angeles made yet another value pick at the top of Day 3. Tranquill is a former safety turned linebacker with great athleticism and all the intangibles teams normally fall in love with when scouting linebackers. He has been one of the best coverage linebackers in college football over the past

couple seasons after earning an 83.3 coverage grade in 2018 and 90.1 in 2017. Emeke Egbule, PFF’s No. 212 overall player in the class, is a solid pass-rushing off-ball linebacker coming out of Houston. He earned an impressive 76.4 pass-rush grade and totaled 22 total pressures this past season. “Cincinnati’s Cortez Broughton, a favorite of PFF’s Andrew Russell, is a sneaky good pick to take before the frenzy for undrafted free agents starts. During his career at Cincinnati (20142018), Broughton racked up 94 quarterback pressures and 98 defensive stops by putting all of his power into a vicious first step. He can apply interior pressure on any down, and he can clear lanes in an instant. Against the run, Broughton was just as efficient. He never fell outside of the top 10 among qualified AAC interior defenders during his final three seasons, posting a run-defense grade over 80.0 each year.” Draft grade: Excellent

all of their original picks, but they did quite well. Tillery was a reach on some boards, but Adderley’s value at the end of Round 2 more than makes up for it. Pipkins is a project but could be a great tackle in time, and Tranquill has been effective when healthy. Taking a flier on Stick to develop behind Philip Rivers also makes sense. “Best pick: Adderley provides not only great value — some pegged him as a late first-rounder — but also a perfect complement to Derwin James. Adderley can patrol center field in Gus Bradley’s Cover-3 scheme while James prowls underneath, and both are versatile enough to interchange at times. “Upside pick: Tillery’s motor runs hot and cold — not just snap-to-snap but game-to-game — but his combination of length and athleticism is rare. His offfield character has drawn rave reviews, leading many to believe he’ll become a star with proper coaching.” The Endzone: ESPN Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr. wasn’t as high on the Chargers draft picks as other pundits, Reuters Reuters news group gave the Char- giving them an overall grade of C+. “The Chargers made the playoffs last gers an overall grade of B for their picks.

So how could you get lost? “Leaning close to grandma, so that the policeman couldn’t hear. Morris whispered, “ I wasn’t lost… I was just too tired to walk home.”

Through that she would learn the fate of her family and began the long road to finding a life of her own. She discovered her freedom, her voice and a new purpose for her life. Established in 2018, the Holocaust Education Film Foundation was started to build an international, interactive online community one Holocaust Survivor story at a time. Through full-length documentaries, distributed globally through numerous platforms, the online site and educational programs, the 501c3 foundation seeks to ensure that we will never forget.

There is a steadiness or perhaps defiance in her voice that would not allow her to give in to her captors. There is nothing wrong with doing everything humanly possible to survive, and Susan makes that clear by the choices she made in her three years in Birkenau. It would seem that life after years in the concentration camp were so much more difficult.
