I put together this website.  Some from a template, some hand-coded.  I'm sure I screwed up the CSS somewhere along the line.  On this page (www.savingthelivesofourown.org/index-2.html) the rollovers are not working, but the 'get url' function is.  The rollovers work great on the home page (www.savingthelivesofourown.org).

I'm attaching the code for the index-2.html page.  Please help!

                       <p>In a rebuke of the Motion Picture and Television Fund, state inspectors concluded that fund administrators violated state law when they transferred dozens of residents out of the charity’s beleaguered nursing home last year.</p>
                       <p>The California Department of Public Health said in a recent report that nursing-home managers did not issue 30-day discharge notices to more than 30 residents who left the nursing home informing them of their rights, including the option to appeal the decision to relocate them.</p>
                       <p>Such notices are required under federal and state law and were also supposed to be issued under a plan the fund had submitted to the department as part of its preparations for shutting down the nursing home and hospital in Woodland Hills, state records show.</p>

                         August 30, 2010<br />
                       </strong></p>
                       <p>Administrators of Hollywood's so-called celebrity nursing home didn't violate state laws when they transferred more than 30 residents last year, California health officials said late last week, reversing an earlier decision.</p>
                       <p>State inspectors had recently charged administrators at the Motion Picture and Television Fund nursing home with failing to give a required 30-day notice of discharge to roughly 30 residents. The administrators appealed that decision, arguing that the notices were not necessary since the residents transferred on their own, voluntarily. Late last week, the California Department of Public Health relented and sided with the home's administrators, according to the LA Times.</p>
                       <p>According to state health officials, the nursing home, though having announced plans to close in January of 2009, did not give residents an official closure date, and therefore the formal closure process had never been initiated, the Times reported. Two patient advocacy groups, the California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform and Saving the Lives of Our Own, the latter of which was formed to defend the residents at the MPTF home, both registered strong opposing views to the state's reversal.</p>

<p><strong>The A-list actor says, &quot;There's a way for Hollywood's wealthier to help out&quot; <br />
                         By Sharon Waxman</strong><br />
  <br />
  <img src="site/images/clooney.jpg" alt="George Clooney" width="203" height="240" align="left" />George Clooney and the Screen Actors Guild are working together on a plan to raise enough money  to reverse the planned closure of the Motion Picture and Television Fund’s hospital and long-term care facility, TheWrap has learned.</p>
                       <p>The plan involves seeking major donations from wealthy actors at a fundraiser <br />
                         that might well be a Clooney roast. But it is not clear that the fund would accept donations that are specifically aimed at saving the hospital and long-term care.</p>
                       <p>The fund announced in January 2009 that those facilities would close because of their high cost. The fund has had its normal, annual fundraisers, while continuing with plans to close the two essential facilities.</p>
                       <p>Asked about the efforts of Clooney and SAG President Ken Howard, MPTF CEO and President Bob Beitcher said, “The Fund has not been directly contacted by any of these parties. We are open to talking to any potential donors who are willing to step in and assume the ongoing funding of the MPTF Long Term Care unit.”</p>
                       <p>That statement suggests that the fund is uninterested in one-time donations, and will only discuss a longterm commitment -- which may not be on the table at this time.</p>

                       <p>We have given because we have all thought of the MPH as one of the best things our industry does in providing  for its &quot;own.&quot; Long-term care was not only included in the original concept of the MPH, but it is the most crucial part of the services the home was built to provide.</p>

<p><strong>4000-plus members urged to write Sacramento</strong><br />
                           <br />
                         LOS ANGELES - Nancy Kalish Biederman, co-founder of Saving the Lives of Our Own, the grassroots organization opposing the proposed closure of the Motion Picture &amp; Televison Fund's Long Term Care Unit (Nursing Home) in Woodland Hills, California, issued the following statement concerning the appointment of Bob Pisano to replace Frank Mancuso as Chairman of the MPTF Corp:</p>
                       <p><img src="site/images/pebpisano.jpg" alt="Bob Pisano" width="203" height="275" border="4" align="left" />&quot;We look forward to working with Mr. Pisano for the good of the residents and the MPTF. We hope he displays the leadership and vision that the Fund needs, and that he has an understanding of - and an appreciation for - the historic mission of the Motion Picture &amp; Television Fund.&quot;</p>
                       <p>Meanwhile, the 4,000-plus members of Saving The Lives of Our Own remain committed to keeping the MPTF Long Term Care Unit open, preventing the evictions of its eldderly residents, and restoring peace of mind to the many senior citizens in Wasserman campus housing who were promised they would be able <br />
                         to live out their days there.</p>
                       <p>Saving The Lives of Our Own member and blogger Richard Stellar called for a letter-writing campaign to Governor Schwarzenegger ro raise his awareness of <br />
                         the vital situation at the MPTF and the plight of the 55 current residents of the <br />
                         MPTF nursing home. In citing the Governor's enthusiastic support for the grassroots efforts to save the Hollywood sign, Mr. Stellar said:<img src="site/images/1page-schwarzenegger.jpg" alt="Governor Schwarzenegger" width="224" height="243" align="right" /></p>
                       <p>&quot;If Governor Schwarzenegger used his influence to save a sign and preserve 130 acres of land, surely he must recognize the importance of saving lives and preserving Hollywood's 90-year humanitarian legacy of taking care of our own. It is sadly ironic that, when the MPTF announced its intention to close Long Term Care, there were approximately 130 nursing home residents. Is land more important than lives?&quot;</p>
                       <p>Community members are being urged to write to the Governor to seek his intervention in appealing to new MPTF Corp. Chairman Bob Pisano to respect and honor the MPTF's founding mission and to ensure that the nursing home remains open for the current residents and for future generations of entertainment industry workers.</p>
                       <p>Saving The Lives of Our Own is a grass-roots coalition of Entertainment Industry workers, long-term care residents, their families and community members. Our mission is to keep the MPTF long-term care facility open, to stop the evictions of its elderly residents and to ensure that the MPTF promise of &quot;Taking Care Of Our Own&quot; remains unbroken - now and for future generations.</p>

              <p>In findings released this week that are based on a CANHR complaint, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) cited the Motion Picture Home for violating the rights of dozens of residents it has moved since January 2009.

                       <blockquote>
                         <p>With over 300 guests and media in attendance, the Beverly Hills home of actors Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna was rocking to the sounds of humanity as entertainment industry members and friends showed their care and concern for the residents of the Motion Picture Home's Long Term Care Unit . </p>
                         <p>Over 200 items ranging from Frank Sinatra's snare drum, to &quot;I Dream of Jeannie's&quot; genie bottle found its way to the auction block.  David Streets along with Renee and Joe (shown above) kept things moving while the money flowed and the generosity showed.  The aroma of food coming from Renee's kitchen was evidence of the great down home cuisine that kept everyone well fed.</p>
                         <p>The auction directly benefits the residents of the Motion Picture &amp; Television Fund's Nursing Home, known as the Long Term Care Unit.  The MPTF has placed a funding barricade on the Nursing Home as it continues to insist that the facility will close.  Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna join thousands of others who refuse to allow this to happen. The residents and their families owe a big thanks to Renee and Joe for being leaders in keeping the promise of 'taking care of their own' alive.<br />

OK Ellen Davis, Let's See the Budget</strong><br />
Referencing her quote in an article<br />
by Steven Mikulan in thewrap.com</p>
              <p>Ellen Davis who now speaks for the MPTF leadership states that it costs the MPTF $11,850 monthly per resident in the MPTF Nursing Home. The Nursing Home has 189 residents at full capacity. &nbsp;That's over $26 million dollars per year. &nbsp;It is inconceivable that it costs over $26,000,000 per year to take care of 189 people who need varying degrees of skilled nursing. &nbsp;It is laughable when you consider that the MPTF owns the land and buildings outright, and as a &quot;charity&quot; pays no taxes, and bills and is paid separately for medical tests and services.<br />
  &nbsp;<br />
                         How can the ultra first class private and for profit Sunrise skilled nursing facility [Brighton Gardens] located in Chatsworth, CA charge about $6,800 per resident monthly &quot;all in&quot; and make a profit? How do any of the for-profit nursing homes make a profit on half or less of what MPTF receives?<br />
  <br />
  <strong>WE DON'T BELIEVE YOU ELLEN - SHOW US THE BUDGET. IF IT'S TRUE, AND NOT A BIG FAT LIE OR &nbsp;GROSS MISMANAGEMENT, SHOW US THE BUDGET AND WE'LL HELP YOU FIGURE OUT A WAY TO TAKE CARE OF 189 SICK AND ELDERLY RESIDENTS FOR LESS THAN $26 MILLION PER YEAR. THAT'S A PROMISE!</strong></p>

If one is truly concerned about institutional decisions that result in life and death, the below is the kind of situation where one's attention should be. Not the government, to be sure, but at one of the crown jewels of the private health care industry. And if it's happening here, it's impossible to not think it's happening all over. And therein lies the lesson.</p>
                       <p>The Motion Picture and Television Fund has announced it's closing health care for the renowned Motion Picture Home.<br />

  A lot of bad blood remains between the two rival factions of the Screen Actors Guild, but one issue might just be powerful -- and apolitical -- enough to bring them together.<br />
  <br />
  Board members representing both sides of the ideological divide hope they can unite their fractious supporters in opposition to the closure of the Motion Picture and Television Fund’s nursing home and hospital.<br />
  <br />
  At least three board members, including Elliott Gould, are planning to put the MPTF closures on the agenda of a Hollywood division board meeting next Monday as part of a coordinated effort to find a way to prevent the oldest, most infirm members of the entertainment community from being thrown out of the home they long assumed would be their last<br />

                         The drama over closing the Motion Picture &amp; Television Fund's longterm care facility and acute-care hospital will continue well into 2010.<br />
                         Although the fund declared nearly a year ago it would shutter the operations by the end of this year, it will remain open for a little while longer. </p>

But outside the event in Century City, the grassroots organization &quot;Saving The Lives Of Our Own&quot; held a candlelight vigil to protest the &quot;Evening Before Eviction&quot; -- its moniker for the MPTF closures of the acute- and long-term care facilities.

                       <p>The California Department of Public Health has reversed its earlier finding that the Motion Picture and Television Fund broke state law when the charity transferred dozens of residents out of its nursing home.</p>
                       <p>The department said this month that the fund had been at fault for not issuing to more than 30 residents 30-day notices informing them of their rights, including the option to appeal the decision to relocate them. Fund administrators appealed, however, maintaining that the relocations were voluntary and didn't require the notices.This week the department agreed, clearing the fund of fault.</p>

                         <p>This is a summary of the just released California Department Of Public Health inspection of the Motion Picture &amp; Television Fund's skilled nursing facility completed on June 4, 2010. The advocacy group Saving The Lives Of Our Own, which has been fighting the closing of the long-term care hospital and nursing home, compiled this summary and also has posted the full report.</p>
                         <p><strong>Illegal Transfers</strong></p>
                         <p>After announcing its plan to close the facility, the Motion Picture Home moved dozens of its residents to other facilities without notifying any of the residents of their transfer and discharge rights – including their right to appeal the transfers – in violation of California and federal laws. The Home also failed to comply with its own relocation plan, which required it to provide 30 days advance written notice to residents and their representatives prior to any transfers initiated pursuant to the closure.</p>
                         <p>According to CDPH’s report, the Motion Picture Home’s Director of Social Services and Vice-President of Professional Services admitted that none of the transferred residents were notified of their rights. Prior to closure, California law requires nursing homes to develop and implement relocation plans in order to protect elderly residents from transfer trauma. (Note: Many of the transferred residents have since died.)</p>

Hardly anyone was around — lights were dim, residents alone in their rooms — as Schary-Robinson Shaw, the daughter of Isadore “Dore” Schary, who ran MGM in the 1950s, wheeled her husband, Stuart Shaw, a resident of the home, around his desolate indoor neighborhood.</p>

I would like to honor his memory with my own endorsement of that position.<br />
  <br />
  &nbsp;We have all been witness to and many of us affected by the scorched-earth profits-first mentality of our times. And while I support the basic tenets of a free market, I also know in my heart that at SOME POINT compassion and humanity must trump material gain.<br />
  <br />
  &nbsp;I grew up in Calabasas just down the street from the Hospital and Home, so my attachment to the place is perhaps deeper than most people's. Even so, we should all agree that the concept of &quot;taking care of our own&quot; is a noble one. For every big-money star there are hundreds of supporting players whose later years are often &nbsp;fraught with financial uncertainty. And should the time come when long-term care is required the Home has been a haven of compassion and dignity coupled with a sense of &quot;still belonging&quot;; of still being somehow connected to &quot;the industry&quot;.<br />
  <br />
  &nbsp;Let's do everything we can to preserve the Actors' Home. We owe it to those who've helped make it all possible for each successive generation.<br />
  <br />
  &nbsp;Thank you,<br />

                         by Dave McNary</p>
<p>David Tillman has resigned as president and CEO of the Motion Picture &amp; Television Fund, following a year of controversy over the fund's plans to close its long-term care facility and acute-care hospital.<br />
                           <br />
                         In an announcement Tuesday, Tillman said he was departing after a decade at the MPTF &quot;in my own best interests as well as in the best interest of the fund.&quot;</p>

It’s been a year since the Motion Picture and Television Fund announced it was closing its in-patient hospital and Long Term Care Unit, setting off a war of attrition that has prevented the fund from closing as quickly as it otherwise might.  </p>
                       <p>In a place where even the Christmas tree managed to cause hard feelings, the new year shows no sign of compromise.<br />

     <p>The administrators of the Motion Picture Home in Woodland Hills must believe that silence is golden.</p>
     <p>Why else would they keep the retirement facility’s remaining residents in the dark about a final moving day deadline? There were 78 of them left back in August, when MPTF CEO Dr. David Tillman sent them a letter stating the necessity for them to leave by year’s end, but no one has actually give an official close-date for the longterm care center.<br />

     <p><strong>Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood</strong><br />
       March 19, 2009<br />
       By Steven Mikulan</p>
     <p>Interesting how the same Hollywood moguls who say the necessary millions can't be raised for the expansion and modernization of the Motion Picture &amp; Television Fund's acute care hospital and longterm care nursing home are instead meeting lofty fundraising goals for the expansion and modernization of the USC School Of Cinematic Arts. But then we know the reason for that: one institution is producing tomorrow's talent whom the studios and networks can then exploit for years to come. And the other simply houses yesteryear's old and sick and used-up workers.<br />

       WOODLAND HILLS -- The Screen Actors Guild has voted to oppose closing the &quot;Motion Picture and Television Fund Long Term Care Facility&quot; where many actors and others have spent their last years.</p>
     <p>The SAG board voted 52% to 48% on Saturday to oppose closing the facility in Woodland Hills.</p>
     <p>&quot;I think the extremely close vote is evidence of the difficult decision we wrestled with today,&quot; said Screen Actors Guild National President Alan Rosenberg.<br />

     <p> David Tillman, president and CEO of the Motion Picture Television Fund, is resigning, the fund announced Tuesday. Although the news came without warning, rumors of a shake-up of the MPTF hierarchy have been swirling for the past month -- and it's possible that Tillman's exit from the fund won't be the last.</p>
