God. I remember her. Every day after school in the dorm lounge at Arizona State all of my room -mates. 1981-82. We all watched "GH" after class. That was a lifetime ago. Sorry to hear of her passing. She was far too young.

Wow ... she was incredibly gorgeous. She passed way too soon. RIP good lookin.

She could play silly and gossipy at the same time. I'll never forget her. She was taken far too soon.

Oh, what a shame. Back in the day (80's) I use to watch GH all the time. Remember her well. Wonder if she had cancer or something. So sad.

She had renal failure. Sad that everyone just assumes it's always drugs.

And how do you know she had renal failure? Were you there? Do you know her personally? All that aside. I remember her too from when I was in HS. Ran home to turn in on....geeshhh seems like forever. But any how, so sorry to hear the loss of a wonderful person.

Sheesh, I read an article that said what the coroner said. Don't be so negative.

The article at Renal failure was on tmz.com or perezhilton.com . I saw it there yesterday.

If actress Shell Kepler was born in 1961 and died before Oct. 5th then she was only 46 years old. Either her DOB was published wrong on every article I have read so far or nobody knows how to do math.

My dad died in Portland. The hospitals are questionable. Maybe she died because of the place she was operated on for her kidneys.

Oregon has some of the worst in the country which is why they were fighting so hard for a widespread liability cap.

Now that is disgusting considering what they did to this poor child.

The Oregon Supreme Court ruled Friday that the family of a brain-damaged child can pursue millions of dollars from Oregon Health & Science University despite a state law capping awards at $200,000.

The impact of the ruling is far beyond OHSU, allowing people injured by state and local employees to pursue their full damages.

The court ruled that the liability cap violated the constitutional rights of Jordaan Michael Clarke, whose family sued for more than $17 million after the boy suffered permanent brain damage in 1998 while in intensive care at OHSU Hospital.

"It's possible that we can get some help now," said Sari Clarke, the boy's mother. "We're just thankful that there is justice for my son."

Folks, for a little balance here’s what the last 5 pages of what others have to say about the poster above. Keep in mind, he changes names with his loss of credibility. As far as healthcare in Oregon, it’s likely the same as across the nation; the best money can buy!

Your ad-nauseam rants add up to Zilch, while your credibility’s the same. You don’t experience life - thus you’ve no right to comment on it. You envy others and attack them for it. You’re not only a shame to humanity but envy the fact you’ll never qualify as an Oregonian!

Most people would just get up and MOVE but not you, you are living out your dream. Oh! by the way, good luck with that billboard dream I hope the pay is decent.

Oregon comes here to work through his issues of self-loathing. Imagine, if you will, a psychodrama playing out on Topix for all to see. I like to think that this is just an opportunity for Oregon to move toward serious self-reflection and healing. This is a very angry person who is disconnected from reality.
Hopefully, this individual will find the strength and courage to move on with his life........perhaps to Mexico, Guatemala...

Please forgive disgusting; he is, well, from a "special place". We citizens of Oregon knew that giving internet access to State Hospital Patients might cause some problems.

It (disgusting) really doesn't speak for anyone other than itself. It just spouts off more of the same old liberal agenda, using half reasoned arguments and selectively choosing information to back its mantra.

HAHA.... thirteen hundredth time you say. Thanks for proving all these people on this forum right. You are simply too stupid to count to five. No wonder you are so pissy. Oh yes, and I did see some words in another post of yours that were spelled wrong. So by the standards you judge others on, you are illiterate AND can't count to five.

Again, thank you for proving us all right.

I am convinced he is the black sheep of the family,has nary a friend and has had much trouble in the past at holding a decent job. I haven't been here in months and what do I see. The same self loathing individual hurling insults at anyone and everyone. This is hate at the highest level. LOOK AT HIS LIFE. Would anyone here want his kind of life? CASE CLOSED.

Oregon Misery. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. Oregon is surrounded by three borders and they all leave the state. It is very apparent that you are a very unhappy and negative person and if you hate Oregon that much you would be doing the entire population a favor by exercising the right to leave.

To return your own words to you:
Why don't you just shut up (figuratively speaking) and just move? What are you prattling on and on and on about?

For those who were denied the pleasure of Winnie the Poo as Children Eeyore is a character in the book series Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne. He is a pessimistic, gloomy, old, depressed stuffed donkey who is a friend of Winnie-the-Pooh.

Oregon has truly been miserable since Eeyore's arrival and in order to end this sad state of affairs I suggest we all donate towards a one way ticket to send Eeyore back from whence he came.

I suggest sending him to the 1000 acre wood instead of the hundred acre wood as there is a better chance that he would get lost.

More on Oregon's lousy medical care. Small wonder OHSU is suddenly out of money and will take it out on the rank and file.


TV personality Ackerman awarded $1.4 million in OHSU injury suit

12:19 PM PDT on Saturday, September 9, 2006

By FRANK MUNGEAM, kgw.com Staff

A jury on Thursday awarded former Portland TV personality Ken Ackerman a total of more than $1.4 million in his injury lawsuit against doctors at Oregon Health Sciences University.

KGW photo

Ken Ackerman talks about the lawsuit.

The jury awarded $412,000 in addition to another $1 million in compensatory damages.

The main doctor in the case was found liable. The internist who assisted was not found liable.

Ackerman, 45, sued the hospital and doctors for $5 million, claiming that a botched surgery forced him to live with a constant pain in his right arm and without most of the fine motor skills in his right hand http://www.kgw.com/news-local/stories/kgw_090...
