    http://www.hhs.gov/healthcare/rights/A Fight over Health Care is Occurin all over the United States but in Tennesse Heroes are fighting Back. Pamela Weston, Randall Rice and his wife retired therpist Meryl Rice were determined not to let their neighbors go uninsured. Learn how they launched a campaign for ACA.Pamela Weston is a grandmother in East TN who organized a 70 mile walk through her state senate district to reach out to those in the healthcare coverage gap resulting from Tennessee's decision not to expand Medicaid.  Her Insure TN Journey for Justice crossed a rural senate district through five counties in an effort to reach out to the district's nearly 15,000 uninsured adults. Meryl Rice is a retired psychotherapist whose last position was as the Director of Crisis Services  for a mental health agency which covers five rural counties in West TN.  She also has many years experience in the healthcare field working in med-surg hospitals .  Her 40 year experience has made her acutely aware of how access to affordable healthcare affects not only individuals and families, but the community at large.  After retirement, Meryl and her husband Randall Rice took it upon themselves to promote the Affordable Care Act and initially trained to be navigators/certified application counselors.  When there were no "sponsoring agencies" near them willing to take on the responsibility of volunteers, they decided to launch out on their own. However, they hit another roadblock.

    LIVE Exclusive: " FAKE DIANA ROSS" The woman who attacked Sly Stones Lawyer

    in Entertainment

    FAKE DIANA ROSS 
    The woman Now known as Nichole Jackson age 46 of Los Angeles Ca aka. the "Fake Diana Ross", allegedly threw a punch at Stone's lawyer, leaving him with a cut to the face. She was quickly arrested by police and booked for misdemeanor battery
    Ms. Jackson has told us herself that it was the arresting officer who came up with the whole "Diana Ross" story and belittled her in jail telling her to sing songs made famous by the Motown legend. " They kept asking me to sing "Baby Love" and kept introducing me to other officers as Diana Ross. Funk Legend Sly Stone Had A Hearing Into His Ongoing Royalties Case Postponed  After His Lawyer Was Attacked Outside The Courthouse by longtime close friend who claimed she was Diana Ross REPORTED BY TMZ.The twist in this story is that Ms.Jackson is no other than Sly Stones long time friend of over 20 yrs. El DeBarge ( from the musicical group "DEBARGE") is the the one who introduced Sly to Nichole in the late 80's when she came to him as a victim of abuse.." she couldn't walk..., couldnt talk.." say's Sly Stone " we had to teach her how to live again, she had lost her memory.. So I healed her thru my music"...Said the Funk Legend.


    Now on to the Bizzare Diana Ross claims.....Once back in 1992 Ms. Jackson played the very small role of Diana Ross in the motion picture " DEATH BECOMES HER" starring Meryl Streep, Bruce Willis & Goldie Hawn, so maybe thats where she got it??? either way the lawyer knows her, Sly knows her ( and pays her) Gerry Goldstein knows her ( and pays her) and She has been accompanying Sly during these Royalty hearings for months now and is more than emotionally connected to Sly, this case and all the lawyers involved..SHE IS HERE LIVE TONIGHT!
