STATE RECEIVES APPROVAL FROM FEDERAL CENTERS FOR MEDICARE & MEDICAID SERVICES (CMS) OF 1115 WAIVER, BEHAVIORAL HEALTH TRANSFORMATION CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family

Services received notice from the Federal government recently that plans to better serve Medicaid beneficiaries with substance use disorders and mental health challenges have been approved. The Federal approval authorizes the state to receive federal financial participation (FFP) for the continuum of services to treat addictions to opioids, other substances and other health conditions. Federal rules outline how states can spend Medicaid funds. But states can ask for “waivers” of federal Medicaid requirements to pilot or demonstrate approaches to providing services not typically covered by Medicaid, creating more innovative delivery systems that improve care, increase efficiency and reduce costs.

t’s graduation season and as educational institutions award students their diplomas, 2018 college graduates are tossing their tassels symbolic of crossing over to another stage in life. The transition from college was a reason to celebrate recently for one Chicago mother and her daughter who received their bachelor’s degrees together on Thursday, May 10, 2018.   Joya Knox, a 54-year-old mother, received her degree just moments ahead of her 37 year-old daughter, Leza Knox, as each was handed a diploma for their degree in Business Administration from Chicago State University (CSU). Neither Joya nor Leza followed the traditional four-year path to graduation. After one year in college, Joya started a family and spent her time working and taking care of her daughter. She worked for several years in business before deciding to return to school to obtain her bachelor’s degree. Her decision to attend Chicago State was an easy one. “I grew up on the south side of Chicago,” said Joya. “Chicago State has always been a place known for its nurturing faculty and I wanted to attend a university where I knew I would be known by name and not by number. I encouraged my daughter to apply to Chicago State as well. I was confident that CSU would give her the positive experience she needed.” After 19 years despite life’s challenges, Leza was determined to complete her degree. She started her academic career after high school at a local private university where she felt misguided and dropped out after investing two years. Eager to pursue her degree, she took classes at her local community college while working, received a promotion and excelled as a Conflicts Paralegal. Notwithstanding her success, Leza lost her job during the 2008 recession and was forced to prioritize her academic career. She enrolled at Chicago State University in 2011, and shortly thereafter, became ill and had to take some time off to heal. Joya also took time off from school to care for her daughter. Yet determined to finish, they graduated together, often studied together and encouraged each other to pick up more classes as they neared completion. “The Knox family is an inspiration to our campus community,” said Dr. Rachel Lindsey, interim president of Chicago State University. “Their level of commitment and ability to persevere is phenomenal and we are proud to award www.thechicagocitizen.com

their degrees together as mother and daughter.” Leza is a Conflicts Analyst and plans to pursue her masters degree in Communications. As for Joya, she plans to pursue her masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) and hopes to be a part of Chicago State University’s first MBA class. CSU is set to launch its MBA program in January 2019. Meanwhile, City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) recently held a graduation ceremony for the seven colleges that make up the school system. One special graduate was the OliveHarvey College Valedictorian, Paola Salcedo who received her associate’s degree in accounting at the recent ceremony. After finishing high school in Mexico, Salcedo moved to Chicago and eventually began taking English as a Second Language (ESL) classes through CCC. She then moved on to the GED courses to further improve her math

and writing skills, and to prepare to enroll in college classes, all the while she was parenting her three young children and working to help support her family. “I was so scared to fail, but I found a lot of support with my tutors, with the teachers, with all the students, and I feel really grateful to be in Olive-Harvey. They made me feel like I was in a family with brothers and sisters because they all helped me and they still help me. They supported me when I felt that I couldn’t do it and they always encouraged me to complete my assignments. I have a lot of responsibilities outside of school, I work and I have three children, and I felt really supported by all the community of Olive Harvey,” said Salcedo. She remembers the first course that she took when she transitioned from the ESL and GED classes into college courses at Olive-Harvey. “It was not easy, it took me a lot of time to adapt to this new routine. One thing that helped me a lot was the first class that I took when I transferred from ESL classes to college credit classes. They offered a class called College Success and that was the first class I took. They taught me how to manage my time, balance my time Continued on page 5

Mayoral Candidate Reiterates Common Claims Against Current Mayor

Illinois EPA to Host Additional Public Outreach Sessions on Draft Plan to Spend Volkswagen Settlement Funds

BY KATHERINE NEWMAN

M

ayoral candidate Willie Wilson recently released a statement making several accusations against the operations of Chicago’s current Mayor, Rahm Emanuel. Wilson has accused Emanuel of raising taxes to balance his budget, and targeting minority communities for his infamous school closures. “They closed down 48 schools in minority communities and that’s a slap in the face to our kids and our families and we need to get some schools back into the community, number one. Another reason I’m running is that property taxes are so high.” said Wilson. “We’ve got red light cameras and boots on cars, the only way he knows how to try and balance the budget is to raise taxes on people and run people out of the City of Chicago and that is unacceptable,” said Wilson. Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, did not respond to the Citizen’s request for comment by deadline. In May 2013, the Chicago Board of Education voted to close 47 underutilized elementary schools and at the time, it was the largest mass school closing in the nation’s history, according to the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research (CCSR). Students affected by the school closures were more likely to receive free or reduced-price lunch and special education services. Of the affected students, 88 percent were African American, according to the University of Chicago CCSR. The City of Chicago Proposed 2018 Budget stated that in 2012, Chicago was facing a $635.7 million shortfall in their operating budget and in the 2018 budget proposal, that deficit had finally been closed. For 2018, there were no new citywide general tax increases proposed in the Mayor’s budget, according to a press release from the Office of the Mayor. The release

stated that the city would save over $19 million through cost cutting and government reform efforts and generate over $119 million in savings for taxpayers in 2018. Like many other candidates, Wilson has stated that he will move forward with the legalization of marijuana, among other things, to generate income for the city. “We’ll try to raise money from a Casino. The one in Hammond Indiana brought in billions of dollars, if we open one in Chicago, it’ll do the same thing, probably more. The other thing is to legalize marijuana and tax marijuana. We can use those taxes to pay the teachers and the pension fund. If you stop raising taxes, people will stop going to Indiana and the suburbs to buy gasoline and food,” said Wilson. Wilson has been focusing on community campaigning and plans to visit 77 communities in Chicago. “We have gotten into about 20 communities already and we have been sitting down and having town hall meetings and using inclusion to get people’s ideas and things of that nature. We want to integrate our citizens of Chicago to live together not segregate the city and how you do that is by being fair with all citizens,” said Wilson.

EPA (IEPA) will host three public outreach sessions on its Draft Plan to use the state’s $108 million allocation from the Volkswagen Settlement. A public input period was initially held from February 28 to April 20, 2018. In response to the 1,600 comments and nearly 300 survey responses received, the Agency is opting to host three additional outreach sessions to communicate with the public. The Draft Beneficiary Mitigation Plan details Illinois’ proposal to remove old, dirty diesel engines from service and replace them with new electric, alternate fuel, and cleaner diesel engines. Illinois EPA developed the draft Beneficiary Mitigation Plan (BMP) with a goal of achieving the maximum NOx emission reductions possible while recognizing the diversity of potential projects that may be available. “The public input period resulted in extensive comments from individuals, companies, advocacy groups, and potential applicants,” said Illinois EPA Director Alec Messina. “Illinois’

BMP is a living document that will continue to evolve as needed to benefit air quality and the health of Illinois residents.” Public Outreach Sessions will be held in the evening from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the following locations: • Wednesday, May 23, 2018, Illinois EPA Headquarters (North Entrance) Sangamo Conference Room, 1000 East Converse, Springfield • Thursday, May 24, 2018, St. Paul Baptist Church, 1500 Bond Avenue, East.

Night Owls May Have 10 Percent Higher Risk of Early Death, Study Says BY KRISTEN KNUTSON AND MALCOLM VON SCHANTZ

D

o you wake up bright eyed and bushy-tailed, greeting the sunrise with cheer and vigor? Or are you up late into the night and dread the sound of your alarm clock? We call this inherent tendency to prefer certain times of day your “chronotype” (chrono means time). And it may be more than a scheduling issue. It has consequences for your health, wellbeing and mortality.

Being a night owl has been associated with a range of health problems. For example, night owls have higher rates of obesity, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Night owls are also more likely to have unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, alcohol and drug use, and physical inactivity. We study the health effects of being a night owl. In our recent study published in Chronobiology International, we found even worse news for the owls of the world: a higher risk of early death.

YOUR VERY OWN BIOLOGICAL CLOCK Our bodies have their own internal time-keeping system, or clock. This clock would keep running even if a person were removed from the world and hidden away in a dark cave (which some dedicated researchers did to themselves years ago!). We believe these internal clocks play an important role in health by anticipating the time of day and preparing the body accordingly. For example, as humans, we typically sleep at night, and our www.thechicagocitizen.com

bodies start preparing for our habitual bedtime even before we try to fall asleep. Similarly, we eat during the day, so our body is prepared to process the food and nutrients efficiently during the daytime.

Our chronotype is also related to our biological clock. Morning larks’ biological clocks are set earlier. Their habitual bedtimes and wake Continued on page 5

CHICAGO – The market for Chicago-area homes

selling at $1 million or more showed broad strength in the first quarter of 2018, according to the RE/MAX Luxury Report on Metro Chicago Real Estate, a quarterly analysis of market activity. First-quarter sales totaled 489 units, the most in that quarter since RE/MAX began tracking luxury sales in 2011 and an increase of +7.5% over the same quarter last year. Perhaps of even greater significance was the +5.5% increase in the median sales price of $1-million-plus homes, which came in at $1.35 million. It was the second consecutive quarterly gain following four quarters in which the median price declined in comparison to the same period one year earlier. A third encouraging result for the quarter was a continued reduction in the number of unsold homes listed for at least $1 million. Luxury listings fell -5.6% to 2,742 units, declining only -0.6% in the City of Chicago but falling -8.4% in the suburbs where the inventory had been especially high for the last few years. Even with that reduction, existing luxury listings in the suburbs still represent a 22.5-month supply of homes based on the pace of first-quarter sales. In comparison, there is an 11.8-month supply of luxury homes in Chicago. “Demand for luxury homes is clearly on the upswing right now, but only time will tell if this is a temporary situation sparked by buyers eager to act before interest rates move higher, or if this reflects a longer-term trend that will help pare down the large number of luxury listings on the market,” said Jeff LaGrange, Vice President, RE/ MAX Northern Illinois Region. “Of particular interest going forward will be the trend in the median sales price. If it continues to advance, it will confirm that demand and supply are moving into better balance,” he said.  CITY OF CHICAGO LUXURY SALES Chicago’s luxury-attached-home market enjoyed an upbeat first quarter, with 140 luxury units changing hands, +16.7% more than the same period in 2017.  That compares to 120 luxury detached homes sold in the quarter, a decline of -1.6%, but still the second strongest first-quarter sales figure for luxury detached homes since RE/MAX began tracking that data in 2011. The combined +7.4% increase in city luxury sales for the quarter came along with an uptick in average market time to 166 days, a 12-day increase. And while the inventory of luxury homes for sale in the city remained essentially stable, falling just -0.6%, that result masked an interesting split. The inventory of luxury attached

homes, spurred by new development, rose +12.9%, while the detached luxury inventory was down -14.7%, reflecting a recent slowing of new construction in that category. One noteworthy shift in the attached market was the emergence of the city’s Near West Side as a major locus for luxury residences. During the first quarter, that area registered 25 luxury attached sales, trailing only the Near North Side, the traditional leader of the attached market, in unit volume. That is particularly striking because from 2011 through 2017, first quarter sales of luxury attached homes in the Near West Side totaled only eight units. In 2017, there were 12 luxury attached sales there during the first six months, then 33 sales in the July-December period.  The median sales price for attached homes, which are primarily condominium apartments and townhouses, was $1.33 million during the first quarter, a gain of +4.7%. For detached homes, most of which are single-family houses, the median rose +3.9% to $1.39 million. The communities of North Center and Lincoln Park together accounted for slightly more than half of all first-quarter luxury detached sales in the city. North Center led with 28 sales, up +12%, at a median price of $1.37 million, while Lincoln Park had 25 sales, up +8.7%, with a median price of $1.7 million. SUBURBAN LUXURY SALES Suburban luxury sales, which almost exclusively involve detached homes, delivered generally positive results. Sales activity rose +7.5% to 229 units during the first quarter, and the median sales price climbed +2.4% to $1.3 million compared to the same period last year. Average market time, however, increased to 257 days from 228 days a year earlier.  Hinsdale had the most active luxury market during the quarter, with 29 sales completed, a +16% increase, while its traditional rival for the top spot, Winnetka, recorded 23 sales, a decline of -17.9%.  Solid sales gains were seen in several other leading suburban luxury markets, including, Wilmette, up +8.7% to 25 units, Lake Forest, up +84.6% to 24 units, Naperville, up +116.7% to 13 units and Glencoe up +120% to 11 units.

200 Cities and Counties Now “Open for Solar Business” WASHINGTON, D.C. – Lee’s Summit, Missouri was designated recently as SolSmart

Gold, marking the 200th local government nationwide to be recognized under the SolSmart program, which provides no-cost technical assistance to help communities make it faster, easier, and more affordable to go solar. The 200 SolSmart designees are in 35 states and the District of Columbia and represent over 59 million Americans. The newest designees range from small towns such as Fairfield, Iowa; to cities such as Asheville, North Carolina and Shawnee, Kansas; to county governments like Suffolk County, New York. Major cities such New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, and many others have also achieved designation. The two states with the largest number of SolSmart designees are Colorado and Illinois (each with 18 designees), followed by California (17 designees), Massachusetts (12 designees), Florida (12 designees), Minnesota (11 designees), Missouri (10 designees), and Texas (10 designees). Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office and led by The Solar Foundation and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), SolSmart launched two years ago in April 2016. Local governments that meet objective criteria are designated SolSmart Gold, Silver, or Bronze, a signal that the community is “open for solar business.” Every local government in the United States is eligible to receive no-cost technical assistance to achieve designation by SolSmart. “Local governments are on the front lines of our national clean energy transformation, taking bold action to cut costs and expand solar energy use,” said Andrea Luecke, president and executive director of The Solar Foundation. “SolSmart has helped 200 local governments and counting reduce administrative hurdles to solar, making them more resilient, more competitive, and well-positioned to attract new jobs and economic growth.” Other municipalities and counties interested in achieving SolSmart designation can begin the process at SolSmart.org.

Night Owls May Have Higher Risk of Early Death times occur earlier in the day. Night owls have internal clocks set for later times. But are there any problems related to being a lark or owl, other than scheduling difficulties? Research suggests that there are; night owls tend to have worse health. And, in our new study, we compared risk of dying between night owls and morning larks. In this study, death certificates were collected for an average of 6.5 years after the initial study visit to identify those who died. We found that night owls had a 10 percent increased risk of death over this six-and-a-half year period compared to larks. We also found that owls are more likely to have a variety of health problems compared to larks, particularly psychiatric disorders like depression, diabetes and neurological disorders. The switch to daylight saving time in the U.S. (or summer time in the U.K.) only makes things more difficult for night owls. There are higher rates of heart attacks following the switch to daylight savings, and we have to wonder if more night owls are at risk. WHY DO NIGHT OWLS HAVE MORE HEALTH PROBLEMS? We researchers do not fully understand why we see more health problems in night

owls. It could be that being awake at night offers greater opportunity to consume alcohol and drugs. For some, being awake when everyone else is sleeping may lead to feelings of loneliness and increased risk of depression. It could also be related to our biological clocks. As explained above, an important function of internal biological clocks is to anticipate when certain things, like sunrise, sleep and eating, will occur. Ideally, our behavior will match both our internal clock and our environment. What happens when it doesn’t? We suspect that “misalignment” between the timing of our internal clock and the timing of our behaviors could be detrimental over the long run. A night owl trying to live in a morning lark world will struggle. Their job may require early hours, or their friends may want to have an early dinner, but they themselves prefer later times for waking, eating, socializing and sleep. This mismatch could lead to health problems in the long run. WHAT CAN OWLS DO? It is true that someone’s “chronotype” is (approximately) half determined by their genes, but it is not entirely preordained. Many experts believe that there are behavioral strategies that may help an individual who prefers evening. For example, gradually advancing your bedtime

– going to bed a little earlier each night – may help to move someone out of the “night owl zone.” A gradual advance is important because if you try to go to bed two to three hours earlier tonight, it won’t work, and you may give up. Once you achieve an earlier bedtime, maintain a regular schedule. Avoid shifting to later nights on weekends or free days because then you’ll be drifting back into night owl habits. Also, avoiding light at night will help, and this includes not staring into smartphones or tablets before bed. On a broader scale, flexibility in work hours would help to improve the health of night owls. Night owls who can schedule their day to match their chronotype may be better off. It is important to make night owls aware about the risks associated with their chronotype and to provide them with this guidance on how to cope. We researchers need to identify which strategies will work best at alleviating the health risks and to understand exactly why they are at increased risk of these health problems in the first place.

Hamilton: The Exhibition Premieres in Chicago this Fall Prior to Tour of U.S. Cities CHICAGO – HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION

– a 360-degree, immersive exhibit that will travel to select U.S. cities -- will premiere in Chicago in the fall of 2018 for a limited engagement, it has been announced by Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the musical HAMILTON, and Jeffrey Seller, the musical’s producer. HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION – on display in a specially-constructed freestanding, all-weather structure the size of a football field -- opens November 17, 2018 for a limited engagement on Northerly Island in Chicago, where HAMILTON has played a soldout run since 2016. 

HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION is a creative collaboration between creative director David Korins, who designed the set for HAMILTON, Yale University professor and historian Joanne Freeman, HAMILTON creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail and producer Jeffrey Seller. Harvard University history and law professor Annette Gordon-Reed is also contributing to the historical accuracy of the exhibit.   This exhibit is presented with Imagine Exhibitions, Inc., one of the leading operators of traveling museum exhibits throughout the world.  Lin-Manuel Miranda states, “HAMILTON is a musical.  It’s as much of Alexander Hamilton’s life as we could wrestle into two and a half hours of musical theater, and it’s been incredible and surreal to see the renewed interest this has sparked in Alexander Hamilton’s life and times.  I’m so thrilled with the work David Korins has done alongside

eminent historians Joanne Freeman and Annette Gordon-Reed, who are experts in this arena. With this exhibition, they’re creating an immersive companion piece for HAMILTON, and a deep dive into the details and experiences of Hamilton’s story.” Featuring an audio tour narrated by Mr. Miranda the musical’s creator, HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION is designed to take visitors deeper into the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, while at the same time chronicling the American Revolution and the creation of the United States of America.   With a dynamic, interactive mix of in-depth scenography, lighting, sound, multimedia and music, HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION will give visitors an experiential journey from Hamilton’s childhood in St. Croix to his untimely death in Weehawken, New Jersey and the numerous, indelible ways Hamilton’s bold actions over 200 years ago affect our lives today. Mr. Seller states, “I hope to use this exhibition to answer some questions that the musical doesn’t address, like ‘What did Alexander actually do when he was a trader in St. Croix?  What did Hamilton’s Manhattan look like?  How did we win the battle of Yorktown?’  In an environment that is visually stunning, aurally thrilling and ingeniously educational, we aim to give visitors yet another unique portal through the life of Alexander Hamilton into the American founding.” “HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION will be an enriching, educational and entertaining attraction for Chicago residents and visitors,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said. “HAMILTON has been bringing down the house to sold out audiences in Chicago, and I am confident this exhibit will be met with similar enthusiasm. I commend producer Jeffrey Seller, Lin-Manuel Miranda and the creative team behind HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION for choosing Chicago for its inaugural run.” HAMILTON: THE EXHIBITION is the most recent extension of HAMILTON, the musical, following the release of “HamiltonThe Revolution,” the best-selling book about
