Your Healthcare at Risk? Ohio's Issue 2

October 18, 2017

Hello, Musicians!

As the old adage goes, "When you have your health, you have everything."  But if your health depends on prescription medications that are too expensive to buy, you may be in a lot of trouble.  For a musician, it can be a serious situation, because for many of us, when illness prevents us from working, our income is diminished. 

As you probably know, Issue #2, on Ohio's November ballot, could affect prescription drug costs for Ohioans.  With the various angles represented in TV and radio ads, I personally have found it difficult to fully understand the issue, and what it means for myself and my family.  A fellow musician and attorney led me to three articles from the Columbus Dispatch, which lay out the information in fairly plain English.  It provides an argument FOR Issue #2, and an argument AGAINST Issue #2.  And, finally, it relays the position taken by the Columbus Dispatch, and the reasoning behind their stance.

Below, is a link to Issue #2, as it will be presented on the ballot.  Below that, you will find the links to the three Dispatch articles.  I hope this information will help you as you vote this November 7, 2017.  I wish you much music and merry-making through the coming holidays!

New, online website:  MUSICIANS DIRECTORY

March 24, 2017



Brief description:

The MUSICIANS DIRECTORY will consist of individual pages, or "mini websites" for each member musician.  The DIRECTORY website will be open to the public, with password access and editing capabilities for members.  These pages will allow musicians to add:

  • Contact info
  • Biographical and artistic info
  • Teaching studio details
  • Personal photo
  • Links to sound files and other websites
  • Events calendar info

The individual pages will comprise the larger Directory.  The intent for the Directory is to provide a centralized listing of musicians, so that it eliminates the need to remember where everyone is teaching or working, in order to find email addresses and phone numbers to contact them.  Musicians will be required to confirm or update their contact info on an annual basis, to ensure the usefulness of the Directory.

The MUSICIANS DIRECTORY also will serve to promote the online community of musicians.  It will be presented to local individuals and organizations who are looking to hire singers and instrumentalists.  Further, it will list businesses and service providers, as well as collaborative artists (dancers, actors, poets, film-makers, etc) to assist musicians in their day-to-day needs, and in their multi-dimensional projects.  

The MUSICIANS DIRECTORY is designed to be very affordable, with memberships starting at $5.99/month.
