Cancer has touched most of us in the area— either directly or through someone weknow and/or love.One of the moments that stands out forme while living through my father’s cancerdiagnosis and treatment was the day he lostmost of his hair.I had gone into the bathroom to take ashower and when I pulled back the curtain,there it was. At first I thought, “Sheesh, wholeft that there?” Then I realized what it wasand why. I immediately sat down on the stooland cried. It was the first physical sign myfather was sick and he might not make it. Wehad all tried to stay positive and upbeat andwere pretty much ignoring the darker side of the disease. It’s what we had to do to carry onday after day.Everything changed after that. It was real.It was happening to us.Rebecca Sypin is one of the people behinda Facebook campaign urging Mattel to createa bald Barbie, one she says children battlingcancer and other diseases that cause hair losscan relate to.Sypin knows about children and cancer.Her daughter is battling leukemia.The Beautiful and Bald Barbie Facebookpage has been up and running for less thana month and already has more than 65,000friends. But despite that support, bald Barbiehas gotten a cool reception from Mattel. Abald Barbie may still be a possibility. Mattelreleased a written statement Thursday sayingthe company is honored that so many peopleare looking to Barbie as the face of such animportant cause.“We receive hundreds of passionaterequests for various dolls to be added to ourcollection,” the statement reads. “We take allof them seriously and are constantly explor-ing new and different dolls to be added to ourline.”Many have had a problem with the buxomblond and her curvy attributes. She doesn’trepresent most of the real women we know— a few but not the majority. Even her impos-sibly tanned and toned boyfriend, Ken, is anunrealistic portrayal of the common man.Sorry guys.Being different can be tough for a kid. Itcan also be a way for children to ostracizeeach other. Children can be as mean as snakes.Don’t take offense. You know it’s true. Theylatch on to any little thing and they’re off andrunning.For children dealing with cancer and theloss of their hair, Bald Barbie can serve as anambassador. They can look at her and knowthat if Barbie doesn’t have hair, it must beOK. It can also help with children whose par-ents may be struggling with cancer treatmentsand have lost their hair. I imagine if it fright-ened me, it would absolutely frighten a child.So, go to Facebook, check out the BaldBarbie page and let’s help the fantastic, plasticlady who gave us hours of fun and stretchedour imaginations as little girls help put thenext generation at ease.

Etta James dies in Calif.
LOS ANGELES (AP) —Etta James’ performance of the enduring classic “At Last”was the embodiment of refinedsoul: Angelic-sounding stringsharkened the arrival of her pas-sionate yet measured vocals asshe sang tenderly about a lovefinally realized after a long andpatient wait.In real life, little about Jameswas as genteel as that song.The platinum blonde’s first hitwas a saucy R&B number aboutsex, and she was known as ahell-raiser who had tempestuousrelationships with her family,her men and the music industry.Then she spent years battling adrug addiction that she admit-ted sapped away at her greattalents.The 73-year-old died onFriday at Riverside CommunityHospital from complications of leukemia, with her husband andsons at her side, her manager,Lupe De Leon said.James’ spirit could not becontained — perhaps that’s whatmade her so magnetic in music;it is surely what made her sodynamic as one of R&B, bluesand rock ‘n’ roll’s underratedlegends.“The bad girls ... had the lookthat I liked,” she wrote in her1995 autobiography, “Rage toSurvive.” “I wanted to be rare,I wanted to be noticed, I wantedto be exotic as a Cotton Clubchorus girl, and I wanted to beobvious as the most flamboy-ant hooker on the street. I justwanted to be.”Despite the reputation shecultivated, she would always beremembered best for “At Last.”After her 1955 debut, Jamestoured with Otis Rettigs’ revue,sometimes earning only $10a night. In 1959, she signedwith Chicago’s legendary Chesslabel, began cranking out thehits and going on tours with per-formers such as Bobby Vinton,Little Richard, Fats Domino,Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee Lewisand the Everly Brothers.James recorded a stringof hits in the late 1950s and‘60s including “Trust In Me,”‘’Something’s Got a Hold OnMe,” ‘’Sunday Kind of Love,”‘’All I Could Do Was Cry,” andof course, “At Last.”In 1967, she cut one of the most highly-regarded soulalbums of all time, “Tell Mama,”an earthy fusion of rock andgospel music featuring blister-ing horn arrangements, funkyrhythms and a churchy cho-rus. A song from the album,“Security,” was a top 40 singlein 1968.Her professional success,however, was balanced againstpersonal demons, namely a drugaddiction. She was addicted tothe drug for years, beginningin 1960, and it led to a har-rowing existence that includedtime behind bars. It sapped hersinging abilities and her money,eventually, almost destroying hercareer.It would take her at leasttwo decades to beat her drugproblem.She was inducted into theRock Hall in 1993, captureda Grammy in 2003 for bestcontemporary blues album for“Let’s Roll,” one in 2004 forbest traditional blues album for“Blues to the Bone” and one forbest jazz vocal performance for1994’s “Mystery Lady: Songsof Billie Holiday.” She was alsoawarded a special Grammy in2003 for lifetime achievementand got a star on the HollywoodWalk of Fame.Her health went into decline,however, and by 2011, she wasbeing cared for at home by a per-sonal doctor. In October 2011,it was announced that Jameswas retiring from recording, anda final studio recording, “TheDreamer,” was released, featur-ing the singer taking on clas-sic songs, from Bobby “Blue”Bland’s “Dreamer” to Guns N’Roses “Welcome To the Jungle”— still rocking, and a fitting end
