I read the recent letter to the editor entitled “Fighting ACA a bad proposition for Republicans” (Tribune, Oct. 25, evtnow.com/607). While I do not agree with the partisan nature of that letter, it highlighted that there are some good things in the ACA that should not be thrown away. Some aspects in particular will positively affect cancer survivors. For example, the protection of patients with pre-existing conditions, as well as the elimination of annual and lifetime limits will provide patients with access to the care they need as well as reduce the number of medical bankruptcies. Too often, patients are faced with daunting financial challenges on top of those related to their treatment and care. However, one issue that is not addressed in ACA is the unequal treatment of oral versus infusion cancer drugs by insurers. There is an urgent need for additional legislation to resolve this problem.

As creaky as an arthritic hip, "Last Vegas" does for four leading stars of the '70s and '80s what movies like "Tough Guys" and "Grumpy Old Men" did for survivors of Hollywood's storied Golden Age: It lets them show they can still throw a punch, bust a move, and get it on, and that they're not quite ready for the Motion Picture Home just yet. Beyond that, this genteel "Hangover" for the AARP crowd has little to recommend it, though a smattering of funny gags and the nostalgia value of the cast keeps the whole thing more watchable than it has any right to be.

Mayor Marlin Kuykendall took a lead role in helping Prescott mourn the loss of 19 firefighters this summer, sharing the stage with the governor and Vice President Joe Biden at a nationally televised memorial.

Jan Brewer needs to “just say NO” to a proposed special session and current demands for increased benefits for the families of the 13 part-time Prescott firefighters killed last June in the Yarnell Hill Fire.

“I guess it is probably OK for (Alex Rodriguez) to appeal his well-deserved suspension. However, I believe that, should he lose his appeal (meaning he ends up with any suspension at all, even if only one game), the Yankees should forfeit all games he participates in after August 4, 2013. So if they win the World Series, they have to give it back.”
