Missouri bill would raise adult crimes age

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — An advocacy group is pushing a bill that would increase the age of people tried in court as adults to 18 years.

KOLR-TV (http://bit.ly/2oIfN81 ) reports that Missouri is one of seven states that treat 17-year-olds as adults in the criminal-justice system. A group called the “Raise the Age Coalition” has been pushing for a change.

Vivian Murphy is the former director of the Missouri Juvenile Justice Association. She says science has proved teenagers’ brains still are developing, and that that putting them in with adult inmates makes them more likely to re-offend.

Critics say the bill doesn’t include additional state funding to hire more juvenile officers.

The House bill could be heard before the end of the legislative session. A similar bill in the Senate has been stuck in committee.

TILT Pinball Bar: All the ridiculous childhood fun in an adult package

Game bars have been opening up across the Twin Cities, from an artist-designed mini golf course with adult cereal milkshakes to a full service scratch kitchen with a vintage arcade.

An increasing number have put the games front and center. But very few of them have done it the way TILT does.

TILT is pinball first, a bar second, and if you do not care to play, it’s probably best to look elsewhere.

But here’s the thing: You do want to play! You really do.

This arcade for adults (kids are welcome too, if accompanied by an adult before 9 p.m.) opens up into an ultra-cacophony the moment you step inside. Your eyes must adjust to the dim nightclub level lighting, with most of the illumination emanating from the machines. You already know what a pinball machine sounds like. But do you know what 22 of them sound like in all their simultaneous glory? Awesome, that’s what. It sounds awesome.

While it’s possible to use this place as a typical bar — with the affordable prices on beer, wine, and cocktails ($6 to $8), plus snacks and dogs in the $5 to $8 range — you’d be missing the point. It’s only when you acquiesce to the power of the game that the true value of TILT becomes clear.

 

Mecca Bos 

There’s a zen satisfaction to sliding a shiny quarter into a little slot and sending that silver ball sailing up its habit trail. For five minutes (or longer if you don’t completely suck) you’re the master of your own 29-by-55-inch universe.

The owners of Nightingale, Jasha Johnston and Carrie Mccabe Johnston, are in charge of the food and the drinks. Their third partner, John Galvin, is the pinball curator. His role is important to the aesthetic of the place. He’s also the owner of DG Pinball, a family business he grew up in, where he deals, maintains, and essentially lives and breathes pinball.

Galvin has hand-selected 22 machines, which will rotate periodically. Does the Adams Family by Bally mean anything to you? They got that. What about a Gottlieb Dancing Dolls produced in 1960, with only 1,150 produced in total? They have that too.

They also have all beef hot dogs from family farm Peterson Craft Meats, vegan dogs from the Herbivorous Butcher, family recipe potato salad that’s as good as a church potluck’s, and a bunch of chips and dips.

There’s a handful of well-selected beers on tap, including Sisyphus Double Danger Pale Ale brewed only for Tilt, plus many more beers in cans, actually drinkable wine priced affordably, and cocktails.

Also: shots. Because you need two hands to play pinball. All the games thoughtfully have drinks stands.

On Sunday mornings they plan to host a kid’s league.

This is the most sure-thing family outing in town, where everyone can be happy, with the games taking the pressure out of too much conversation with mom, or forcing kids to sit still. Plus a hot dog menu that takes the pressure out of dinner.

And drinking.

Now open.

Saturday Night as an Adult

We really want them to like us. We want it to go well. We overdress. They are narrow people, art people, offhand, linens. It is early summer, first hot weekend. We meet on the street, jumble about with kisses and are we late? They had been late, we’d half-decided to leave, now oh well. That place across the street, ever tried it? Think we went there once, looks closed, says open, well. People coming out. O.K. Inside is dark, cool, oaken. Turns out they know the owner. He beams, ushers, we sit. And realize at once two things, first, the noise is unbearable, two, neither of us knows the other well enough to say bag it. Our hearts crumble. We order food by pointing and break into two yell factions, one each side of the table. He and she both look exhausted, from (I suppose) doing art all day and then the new baby. We eat intently, as if eating were conversation. We keep passing the bread. My fish comes unboned, I weep pretending allergies. Finally someone pays the bill and we escape to the street. For some reason I was expecting snow outside. There is none. We decide not to go for ice cream and part, a little more broken. Saturday night as an adult, so this is it. We thought we’d be Nick and Nora, not their blurred friends in greatcoats. We cover our ears inside our souls. But you can’t stop it that way.

Hepatitis C hitting young adult New Yorkers as well as baby …

You won’t see a face like Kaysie’s in public service announcements about hepatitis C.

She’s not a baby boomer, the high-risk group that TV and magazine ads urge to get tested for the potentially life-threatening liver disease. She’s a 34-year-old single mother from Cohoes who works two jobs and takes care of an 8-month-old baby.

But while her smooth skin and long, light-brown hair may not fit the image of a “typical” hepatitis C patient, it should. She’s one of a new and growing group, young adults age 20-40, whose rates of hep C have outpaced those of people in their mid-50s to early 70s. And while among baby boomers statewide hepatitis C rates are twice as high for men as for women, the gender gap is much narrower for adults in Kaysie’s age group.


More young adults infected, more women infected. And there’s also an increase in hepatitis C in suburban and rural areas, according to the state Health Department.


If it sounds familiar, it’s because hepatitis C rates are rising among the same groups that have seen spikes in drug overdoses during the last decade, amid an epidemic of heroin and opioid abuse. Like many others, including a whole bunch of boomers with hep C, Kaysie contracted the illness by sharing a needle to inject drugs.

Due to their sheer numbers, there are still more boomers with hepatitis C than young adults. But the higher rates of illness among the younger group is creating a second wave of contagion three years after the state took aim at infection among baby boomers by requiring doctors to ask anyone born between 1945 and 1965 if they wanted a test to check for the virus.

Statewide, excluding New York City, cases of hepatitis C rose to 16,169 in 2014, from 13,424 the year before, after eight years of declines. (The Health Department attributes some of the increase to finding more people through mandated screening.) New York City used to be the epicenter of hepatitis C cases, but more than half of newly reported chronic cases in 2014 were elsewhere in the state. National data show deaths related to hepatitis C are on the rise, too, reaching an all-time high of nearly 20,000 in 2014.

More than 100 treatment and advocacy groups, including VOCAL-NY, the Alliance for Positive Health and Catholic Charities Care Coordination Services, presented the state with a consensus statement in February, urging officials to take on the illness in the way it has approached AIDS with the “End the Epidemic” campaign that aims to bring the number of new cases of HIV to 750 per year by 2020.

“We have a test. We just need to ensure everyone takes it. We have a cure. Everyone should be given it. We know how to stop new infections, driven mostly from injecting drug use,” said Jeremy Saunders, co-director of VOCAL-NY. “We have all the tools to end hepatitis C, we just need the resources and political will to do it.”

At a state conference that month, New York health officials committed to make the illness rare.

There are reasons to believe that aim can be achieved: In recent years, new, easy treatments are curing more than 90 percent of patients, a far cry from the best options of the past, which were only effective for about half of patients, had to be given by injection and came with dreadful side effects. And New York health officials have established a solid track record in how to reduce infection among the highest-risk patients — injection drug users — in the battle against HIV and AIDS.

But there are also big challenges: Perhaps half of the estimated 200,000 infected New Yorkers don’t know they have hep C and those that do don’t always seek treatment due to complicated lives or lack of confidence in the cures. The virus lives longer outside the body than HIV, so its spread is tougher to curb. The medications are costly — ranging from about $56,000-$90,000 for a full treatment, according to health providers. And the drugs only work if you take them correctly, something that can be an issue for patients struggling with drug addiction or in the early stages of recovery.

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus that can cause chronic infection of the liver and, in the worst cases, liver failure.

It spreads from one person to another through blood, putting IV drug users who share needles or other supplies in the highest risk group for contracting the virus. Men who have sex with men are another high-risk group, but not close to injection drug users. Anyone who received a blood transfusion before 1992, when hep C tests became available, is also at risk.

But any blood-to-blood transmission will do, and up to 40 percent of patients have no obvious risk factors, said Dr. Chris Murphy of Ellis Family Health Center in Schenectady. John Thompson, a 62-year-old from Cobleskill, believes he got the virus from sharing straws to snort cocaine years ago. A 64-year-old retired nurse who lived in Albany until recently, and asked that her name be withheld, isn’t sure whether she got it from a needle-stick injury or from a man she was married to decades before either of them had a diagnosis.

The virus starts out in an acute stage, and 20 to 25 percent of patients clear it on their own, local experts said. When the body’s own immune system does not get rid of acute hep C, the illness becomes chronic, often progressing at a snail’s pace. Patients may live without symptoms for years, or the symptoms may develop so slowly that people don’t realize that their feeling worn out or confused is the result of a creeping infection, said Dr. Peter Ells of Albany Medical Center.

“You kind of get used to the fatigue, it’s just part of life,” said Ells’ patient, David Steele, 67, of Malta.

A hemophiliac, Steele contracted the infection from blood he received before 1992. But over time, it wreaked havoc on his liver, causing cirrhosis and then cancer. He is now on a list awaiting a liver transplant.

Until recently, the standard treatment for hepatitis C, interferon, was both difficult to endure and often ineffective. Side effects included flu-like symptoms — fever, chills, aches, poor appetite. And after all that, interferon worked for only about half the people who took it.

So lots of patients like Steele just watched the damage accumulate over time.

But the outlook for patients changed radically in 2013 and 2014, when two new drugs, Sovaldi and Harvoni, hit the market. They were pills with manageable side effects that cured more than 90 percent of the people who took them. Patients and advocates initially cheered their arrival, but then revolted when Medicaid and private insurers would not cover the drugs’ price — $100,000 for a complete treatment — until patients were in advanced stages of liver disease.

Last year, with a big push from advocates and the state attorney general’s office, Medicaid and private insurers changed those rules. Now, most patients get coverage if doctors recommend them for treatment, local experts said.

As of June, more than 16,000 New Yorkers on Medicaid had received the treatments, about 28 percent of the Medicaid enrollees with a hepatitis C diagnosis. It’s unclear what that cost state taxpayers. The drugs’ cost on average $88,000 per patient, but the state also receives rebates that are proprietary and undisclosed.

One common reason formerly given for denying coverage was that a hepatitis C patient had only recently stopped using drugs or was still using them. Randy Viele of the Alliance for Positive Health in Albany, which provides supportive services to people with chronic illness, said some doctors still won’t recommend medication for active drug users. They reason that the medicine is pricey and those patients are at risk for reinfection, Viele said. Some are also concerned that the new drugs won’t work as well if a patient needs a second treatment. So with the disease’s slow progression, they sometimes choose to postpone treatment.

Dr. Murphy does not think active drug use should automatically disqualify a hepatitis C patient for treatment. Some IV drug users can comply with taking a pill every day and know not to share needles or other paraphernalia. What’s tougher to assess is whether someone will maintain insurance coverage for three months of treatment. Or whether a patient has bigger concerns than early-stage hepatitis C, like homelessness, he said.

Samara Gabree, the clinical director of Project Safe Point, an Albany-based syringe exchange program, argued that treating active drug users can curb the spread of illness. She cited one study that showed curing one in 100 drug users of hepatitis C reduced the transmission of the virus in the community by 30 percent.

Her program is working to educate young drug users, especially, that hepatitis C is different from HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The 20-to-40-year-olds who are getting sick have heard the HIV-prevention messages and know they shouldn’t share needles, Gabree said. But the hepatitis C virus can live on any part of what’s called “the works” used to prep drugs for injection — cookers, cotton pads, bands to tie around the arm. So those can’t be shared either.

Experts throughout the region said it can be difficult to convince people to get tested, and then to urge them to seek treatment. Complicated lives are one reason. Whitney Young Health runs a program through a $250,000-a-year state grant that seeks to help people in its addiction treatment program and throughout the community to stay on their hep C medication and also stabilize the rest of their lives, with life skills and nutrition training.

Another obstacle, experts said, is mistrust, based on past experience: Infected people don’t believe that the medicines are easy to take, won’t cause toxic side effects and will actually work.

Angel Marquez, a 58-year-old Schenectady resident, has had a long journey with both drug addiction and hepatitis C infection. A native of Puerto Rico, he was first offered interferon treatment in Albany in 1994, but was actively using heroin and didn’t comply. He later got interferon injections while in prison, but left without knowing whether they were effective. Eight years ago, Marquez again tested positive for hep C at an addiction treatment program, but didn’t stay there.

Meanwhile, the hepatitis C tired him out and an inflamed liver caused severe abdominal pain. He dulled the pain, and everything else, with heroin.

In 2015, he got clean with help from the Camino Nuevo addiction treatment center in Albany. A year later, after attending a hep C conference with staff and other clients, he felt motivated to try treatment. Medicaid denied him coverage, and his doctors helped him appeal. Eventually, he took Harvoni and was cured.

Proud of being free of both heroin and hepatitis C, Marquez walked into group therapy one day and announced, “Estoy curado!” (“I’m cured.”) Fellow clients knew he was off drugs, but did not believe the hep C treatment worked. Camino Nuevo Director Micky Jimenez said they questioned him: You’re completely cured? Insurance paid? It didn’t make you sick? Three of them got into treatment afterward, she said.

Younger adults may not face those same psychological blocks. They don’t have experience with the old medication.

Carrie, a 39-year-old Glens Falls resident who recently finished Harvoni treatments, was indignant, much like Kaysie, when she was initially denied coverage for Harvoni. Diagnosed with hepatitis C 14 years ago, she wasn’t sick but worried that she would become ill and could in the meantime spread the illness.

She recently got through a full treatment and is cured.

“It’s a miracle, a godsend,” said Carrie of being cured after more than a decade of knowing she carried a potentially lethal illness. “It’s so hard to come to terms with knowing you have a chronic disease, and then one day it’s mentioned that you’ll be cured. It brought tears to my eyes.”

Route 66 adult coloring book features Amarillo-area attractions

Jo Ann Kargus has spent the last few months with a classic song stuck in her head.

“(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66” has been running through her mind on repeat, and for good reason: The St. Louis artist has been illustrating an adult coloring book themed around the Main Street of America titled “Route 66 Splendor: An Adult Coloring Book.”

“My publisher gave me lots of freedom for what the images were. I kind of felt like I was my own art director because I could come up with what I wanted to draw,” she said. “I decided I’d break it down from state to state. I always think of it as ‘Chicago to LA.’ I’d always sing that song, ‘(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66,’ while I was drawing. I had Nat King Cole’s greatest hits on in the background.”

As you might expect, the Texas Panhandle is featured prominently in the book.

The 104-page book includes scenes from Amarillo’s Cadillac Ranch, along with each state along the route, including some of the most iconic landmarks like Devil’s Rope Museum, Madonna of the Trail, Chain of Rocks Bridge and Hackberry General Store.

Kargus worked with Reedy Press, a St. Louis-based publisher, to create the book of 50 detailed black and white line drawings of historical landmarks and cultural icons along Route 66 in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.

Each state has a title page with the shape of the state filled with a collage of thumbnail sketches of a few of the state’s iconic images. Behind each title page are a handful of full-page illustrations of different landmarks. For Texas, she included U-Drop Inn in Shamrock, Phillips 66 Gas Station in McLean, Devil’s Rope Museum in McLean, Britten Leaning Water Tower in Groom, and Cadillac Ranch.

With 32 years of doing architectural renderings under her belt, Kargus was the perfect candidate to create depictions of the Mother Road.

“It’s very detailed and realistic, but I kind of simplified my style I normally do for architect and made my drawings realistic and fun to color,” she said.

Kargus has yet to travel the entire route and relied on Google Maps images of each destination to get a realistic feel of the locations. She said she went “old school,” drawing each image first with pencil and eraser, then a final draft in pen on white paper before scanning it into a computer and submitting to the publisher.

Though Kargus calls her book a coloring book, she describes it more as a “book of drawings people can choose to color or not.” The book can be used as a coloring book, she said, or simply a fun book of black and white line drawings. Each page is perforated so users can color pages and tear them out to either share or frame.

It’s Kargus’ second coloring book for Reedy Press. Her first, “St. Louis Splendor: An Adult Coloring Book,” released September 2016, sold 3,000 copies in just seven weeks. The book was popular enough for Reedy Press to order a second printing of 5,000 copies. Kargus said that second printing is nearly sold out, too.

Reedy Press’ Lanna Demers said coloring books are a great way for adults to be creative without needing to be a fine artist. It seems many are attracted to the hobby, she said, because it’s a good way to unwind and destress.

Plus, it’s just fun.

“Adults get the chance to be creative and create a beautiful piece of art in an already drawn-out format,” she said. “It allows adults to be creative. It gives adults an artistic outlet. I think it is important to have a creative outlet, especially for those of us — like myself — who are not artistic. It allows you to create something beautiful, something you can be proud of.”

Kargus agrees that coloring books geared towards adults are a great way for adults to engage in the creative process in a non-intimidating way. The hobby is appropriate for any skill level, and colorers can make their images as simple or complicated as they’d like.

“In the past, most coloring books were very simple and really oriented — and simply drawn — for little kids. I’ve seen books based on Disney movies and ‘Game of Thrones,’ and they’re drawn beautifully,” Kargus said. “You can pick a book on any topic you’re already interested in, and you can just sit down and do it anywhere.”

The adult coloring book trend also has created another venue for artists to make and sell work, Kargus said, as well as an affordable way for consumers to support artists.

Kargus said her ultimate hope is someone would bring her Route 66 coloring book along with them on the route, coloring the images as they visit the real-life destinations and take their own pictures.

“I look at adult coloring books as black and white drawings and then I think how would I color it? But it’s art in and of itself,” she said.

Kargus is currently working on a third coloring book — with a theme she won’t yet disclose — and hopes to someday create a second Route 66-themed book using the imagery that didn’t make it into her first book.

“Listen, I’m all ready to draw another one,” she said, laughing. “This is what I love to do. I love being able to make a living as an artist. This is a good fit for my skills.”

Penthouse CEO Kelly Holland wants to revive the legendary adult entertainment brand

The gig: Kelly Holland is the chief executive and majority shareholder of Chatsworth-based Penthouse Global Media, the adult entertainment brand founded in 1965 by Bob Guccione. She acquired the company last year from parent company Friend Finder Networks after a long period of financial difficulty for Penthouse.

Holland now oversees all the company’s operations, including its cable and satellite channels, which reach more than 100 countries, as well as its iconic magazine that is famous for its nude female models, known as Penthouse Pets.

Catholic school girl: Growing up in the Dallas area, Holland attended a Catholic convent school and quickly found her rebellious streak. “I didn’t understand why Mary had to be a virgin,” she recalled.

Her single mother struggled to make ends meet and she didn’t know her father. “I had no role models growing up, so I had to make up my position in life,” she said.

‘Camp No Counselors’ adult summer camp coming to Michigan in …

DETROIT – “Camp No Counselors” is a weekend-long sleepaway camp for grown-ups – and it’s coming to Michigan this June.

Each camp weekend is filled with land and water sports, arts ‘n crafts activities, epic nightly theme parties, an open bar, delicious meals and, of course, all of your favorite classic camp activities. 

The camp dates are June 22 to June 25. Here’s more information from the camp:

Exceeding industry standards for summer camps, our Michigan location offers the rustic charm of a gorgeous natural environment, with a modern twist. This hidden gem located in the Manistee National Forest (near Grand Rapids), provides its campers with the opportunity to celebrate their escape with a variety of activities throughout its 100+ acres, including a zip line, a ropes course, a plethora of sailing and water activities and even a lazy river! 

ALSO SEE: Your ultimate guide to Michigan’s best wineries, breweries and distilleries

Vintage 1930s cabin spaces have been updated and maintained, which line a path leading directly to the centrally located and recently renovated Dining Hall. With 5-6 bunk beds per cabin, each unique space accommodates 10-12 adults comfortably and conveniently. Often used as a resort, this camp’s facilities continue to evolve and expand, while retaining the natural and original camp vibe.

Part of what differentiates the Camp No Counselors experience from a traditional kids camp, is our delicious food! We start each day with a healthy breakfast including: eggs, bacon, pancakes, cereals, juices, fresh fruit, yogurt and always tons of coffee (and, of course, mimosas Bloody Marys!). For lunch and dinner, our chefs prepare mouthwatering takes on traditional camp classics like delicious barbecued baby back ribs, rosemary skirt steak, grilled chicken, corn on the cob, fish tacos, veggie burritos and other tasty dishes. Each meal is accompanied by healthy salads, fresh fruit and more. In addition to our standard menu, we offer gluten-free, vegetarian and other options for those with dietary restrictions.

Michigan Camp’s Activities Include:

Archery / Arts ‘n Crafts / Baseball / Basketball / Canoe Trips / Capture the Flag / Color War / Dodgeball / Friendship Bracelet Making / Kayaking / Kickball / Lazy River Tubing/ Nature Hikes / Painting / Ping Pong / Ropes Courses / Sailing / Slip n’ Slide / Softball / Sunbathing / Talent Show / Tie-Dye / Tubing / Ukulele Lessons / Ultimate Frisbee / Wakeboarding / Water Skiing / Zip-Line and much more!

Theme parties and open bar:

While the activities are all “fun and games” during the day, our open bar takes the weekend experience to the next level. At breakfast, we have a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar; beer and wine available at lunches, and from happy hour throughout the night, we have a full service open bar. In the evenings, we bring in world class DJ’s and up-and-coming bands to play intimate, unforgettable shows. Since there’s no party more fun than a costume party, we introduce themes for each bash well before the camp weekend, so everyone can prepare for the parties. The themes have ranged from “Superheroes and Villains” to “Jock Jams”, to “Wet Hot American Summer” and beyond. While we do have an ‘open bar’ available throughout the course of the weekend, we do not serve alcohol in between meals as we take the safety of our campers during our activity periods very seriously.

Registration runs between $525 and $599 for the weekend and it includes:

  • 3 nights of lodging and accommodations
  • All meals, snacks, and s’mores
  • Open bar all weekend
  • Outrageous nightly theme parties
  • All your favorite camp sports, games and activities
