City Bureau Lawrence LeBlanc has been doing business in Austin for more than a decade. The furniture store owner operates on North Avenue, a high-traffic commercial corridor. LeBlanc’s business sits several hundred feet from a bus stop. One neighbor is a corner store. There’s a copy and print store across the street. But many of LeBlanc’s neighbors aren’t fellow businesses. His immediate neighbor to the right, his across-the-streetneighbor, and the new tenant of the old bank building on the corner: all churches. “When you have [so many] storefronts being used for churches, people who are shopping will not come into that area because they know that it’s mostly churches, and churches only open on Sundays,” said LeBlanc. The issue isn’t limited to foot traffic. Parking is also a sticking point, as are the liquor license restrictions on any business within 100 feet of a church. And since churches don’t pay property taxes, they don’t contribute to the local Tax Increment Financing district, which redistributes excess property tax revenue into community redevelopment funds, and which is supposed to be a tool for economic revitalization. “On a Sunday it looks wonderful out here with all of the cars, suits, and ties,” said Malcolm Crawford, who co-founded the Austin African American Business Networking Association and owns a business on Chicago Avenue, about a mile south of LeBlanc’s store. “But then around 1 or 2 p.m., when everyone leaves, it all goes back to us trying to survive.” Operating a business in Austin — a neighborhood that struggles with disinvestment and crime — is already a challenge, especially for those who rely on foot traffic. Crawford and LeBlanc both own businesses on commercial strips where storefront churches are prevalent. They say they’ve spoken to other business owners who share their concerns:

city regulations and economic conditions often favor churches at the expense of stores. “It’s not that we don’t get along,” said Crawford, who added that he knows many of the pastors on the block. “We are not frustrated with the church itself. Most of us go to church. We are frustrated with the structures.” Among those structures are TIF districts and Special Service Areas, two main ways that the city incentivizes economic development, which are dependent on property tax. Even if churches are renting a property, in some cases they are able to apply for a property tax exemption on behalf of the landlord. And because they’re only used once or twice a week, landlords are more likely to rent to churches than store owners, Crawford said. The commercial corridors on North and Chicago Avenues are part of the Austin TIF district; since 2007, the majority of funds ($2.3 million, or 60 percent) was invested in public improvements such as streetlight improvements, road resurfacing and alley construction. Business owners are keenly aware that storefront churches benefit from these upgrades without paying for them.

leaders are trying to create a “Soul City Corridor,” running on Chicago Avenue between Austin and Central. Crawford, who is board chair of Sankofa Cultural Arts and Business Center on that strip, said the Soul City project aims to showcase and attract African-American businesses and cultural establishments. Four new businesses in this vein — a travel agency, a sitdown restaurant, a bistro, and a sweets shop — have opened within the past two years. But at least a quarter of the establishments — the majority in the center of the strip — are churches. (Last December, the city announced an SSA just outside of the Soul City Corridor, starting east of Central Avenue on Chicago Avenue; in an SSA, property owners must agree to an additional property tax, which is then used to beautify and promote a business district.) Still, churches don’t merely exist for financial or economic purposes, said Frances Kostarelos, author of Feeling the Spirit: Faith and Hope in an Evangelical Black Storefront Church. “They’re a source of vitality and educational and cultural significance,” said Kostarelos, an anthropologist who has studied storefront churches on Chicago’s West Side. “These are really important

Store owners think a lot of churches are bad for business. computer courses, and a newly renovated banquet hall — it cannot afford to hire someone to run the programs, Giles said. If churches aren’t able to host programming during the week, business leaders have other requests that they say could help encourage commerce and, ultimately, bring economic change to the neighborhood. For instance, they could ask congregants to respect loading zones on Sundays and make their own parking lots available to the public during the week. Layla Bitoy, who owns Bitoy’s Sweet Treats and Bitoy’s Bistro, and Harold Blake, the owner of Avanti Elegant Boutique, all on Chicago Avenue, say parking is their businesses’ biggest challenge. Currently, there are no meters or hourly parking restrictions on the block. Bitoy is one of several small-business owners who said they asked the city to add parking restrictions to discourage people from parking all day in front of their storefronts, which limits the number of shoppers and makes it difficult to receive deliveries. Crawford and other Soul City Corridor members are working with the city in order to launch a jazz club, as well as attract other restaurants and bars to Chicago Avenue. Illinois statutes require that establishments selling alcohol be at least 100 feet away from churches and day care centers; in order to circumvent the statute, they must either get the approval of a majority of registered voters in a 500-foot radius of the business or persuade the alderman to lift the restriction. Many of these issues are in the purview of the alderman, whose office can influence whether churches get “special use” approval to open in a commercial zone. Chris Taliaferro, the alderman whose ward includes the Soul City Corridor, said he’s aware of the concerns of business owners but hesitates to call the “frustrations.” ‘”I think there’s concern about being able to economically develop these areas along the commercial corridors with the present number of churches that exist,” he said. “We have to find out how both can exist and flourish while still being in the same area. . . . We have to come up with creative measures to make sure that both can exist without one suffering.” Communication Barrier A major barrier appears to be communication. Though business owners say they have talked among each other about their concerns about churches, even those who

are friendly with pastors are loath to bring the issues directly to congregants. Crawford said his critiques of churches in the past year have caused some community members to accuse him of hating the church. “That just tore me,” said Crawford, adding that the problem is not the church but rather the economic conditions in which they live. “I love everything about Christianity. It’s just that the very thing that is supposed to save us is killing us.” One other business owner who was interviewed for this article asked his name and quotes be removed, for fear that he would lose customers over it.

institutions that needs to be understood by anyone who wants to be a neighbor.” Part of being a good neighbor, said pastor Robert Stevenson, is engaging with local residents and providing services to the community. Rock of Our Salvation Church, about a 10-minute walk from Sankofa Cultural Center, has worked with Circle Urban Ministries for more than 30 years to offer a law clinic, after-school programs, a medical clinic and food pantry. “The founders wanted [our church] to be salt and light to the world. They had a biblical principle of understanding social justice and racial reconciliation,” said Stevenson, who grew up on the South Side but now lives in Austin. But he recognizes that neighboring churches do not provide the same type of services. He added, “Community churches are not being intentional and engaging [with the neighborhood]. That’s why you see those doors closed throughout the week.” Though pastors along the commercial strips of Chicago and North Avenues said they organized at least one clothing drive or food drive in the past year, none had regular weekday daytime programming bringing people inside, according to interviews with pastors, posters and handouts. Attracting Loiterers And LeBlanc, the furniture store owner, says that the empty churches become magnets for loiterers: “All week long these places are closed. It creates a safe haven for people to hang out and do their dirty deeds,” LeBlanc said. Stevenson thinks it’s due to a lack of resources, not desire, that keeps other pastors from launching additional programming. He noted that most of his congregants hail from the neighborhood, which is not the case for many other churches in Austin. It’s a common phenomenon in northern cities after the Great Migration, according to research by University of Chicago sociology professor Omar M. McRoberts. Churches sprang up that appealed to people with “distinct origins and affinity groups — whether working-class Baptists from North Carolina or middle-class Methodists from Virginia,” he said in an interview for his book Streets of Glory: Church and Community in a Black Urban Neighborhood. “If a church distinguishes itself demographically and culturally, people will commute from other parts of the city, and even from outside the city, to attend it if that’s where they feel at home,” said McRoberts. That could explain why some Austin churches have active, insular congregations but minimal community outreach. Some say they wish they could provide more programming, but say they lack the funding and staff. “Over the summer I would love to have classes for the kids when they are out of school,” said Pastor Kenneth Giles, who leads Mt. Olive M.B. Church, which has been in the neighborhood for more than 30 years. But Giles is a full-time social worker whose shifts change on a weekly basis. Despite his church’s expansive facility — the building includes five classrooms, two auditoriums, a basement equipped for

ro warned that airing the business owners’ concerns could create a division in the community. What the community really needs, according to Andrew Born of Austin Coming Together, is someone who can give businesses and churches “the opportunity to come together to determine what works best in their specific target area, and . . . make rules that are mutually beneficial.” “These two parties should not be opposed, but the way the system and structure is set up they are,” said Born, director of programs and development at the community organization. “Both churches and small businesses have an important role in the community and in revitalizing the community. Austin needs a place where people can find jobs but people also have space to worship and build community and support systems.” Crawford agrees. He said he is working with local political and business leaders to encourage more churches to meet in public schools and community centers, such as Sankofa, rather than renting storefronts, which can be more economical for them. Crawford said he is looking for creative ways to break out of the structures that once posed challenges to his fellow business owners, while also working with the churches. “We’re just looking for the right to coexist,” said Crawford. “We have tons of problems right now. The last thing we need is the churches against the businesses.”

Gov. Rauner Meets With Covenant House to Launch Defender’s Editorial Board New Shelter and Services By Lee Edwards Defender Contributing Writer Nothing was off-limits in an hourlong sitdown with Gov. Bruce Rauner at the Chicago Defender’s office, 4445 S. King Dr., on Feb. 10. Rauner’s visit came on the heels of the Illinois Department of Transportation’s announcement for a proposed $2.7 billion expansion project of the I-290 Eisenhower Expressway, of which the governor pledged to reserve contract opportunities for minority-owned businesses. He stressed the importance of construction crews being representative of the communities where projects are located. The governor applauded the Illinois Tollway Authority’s (ITA) efforts to increase diversity in its contractors and suppliers. Specifically, he credited his ITA appointees — Robert Schillerstrom, Joseph Gomez, Rev. Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church of Chicago, 6620 S. King Dr., among others — for spearheading inclusion efforts. Since 2015, the ITA tripled the number of minority contracts set aside — from eight to 24 — compared to the standard set by the Quinn administration, according to Rauner. Additionally, more than 36 percent of contracts issued for professional service firms have been awarded to minority- and women-owned businesses.

Criminal Justice Reform

Since the beginning of the Rauner Administration, headway has been made on addressing Illinois’ staggering prison population. In 2015, Rauner signed Executive Order 14 to commission the creation of the Illinois State Commission on Criminal Justice and Sentencing Reform, with the directive to reduce the state’s prison population by 25 percent by 2025. In December 2016, the commission released the second of two reports that offered 27 recommendations to achieve its goal. Thus far, the state has reduced its prison population by 10 percent, according to Rauner. The full report, including recommendation information, can be viewed at http:// www.icjia.org/cjreform2015/index.html. “We have to change our criminal justice system. It shouldn’t be just about punishment, it shouldn’t be just about putting people in jail and throwing away the key,” said Rauner, who cited mental health and drug treatment as key to addressing recidivism. “We have to focus on what’s the cause of criminal behavior.” He vowed to reserve revenue in the state’s budget to implement all the reforms proposed by the commission. The governor noted State Sen. Kwame Raoul (Dist. 13), a commissioner on the criminal justice reform report, and State Rep. La Shawn Ford (Dist. 8) have been key contributors throughout the criminal justice reform process.

Chicago’s Gun Violence

Not much was discussed in terms of addressing Chicago’s gun violence; however, Rauner disagreed with President Donald Trump’s tweet that suggested the deployment of the “Feds” was a proper method

to address the issue. He said after speaking with experts on the topic, “Nobody thinks sending in the National Guard or federal troops is a good idea.” The National Guard should be deployed only during riots and other extreme situations, said Rauner.

Education

All levels of education are of the utmost importance to the state’s top elected official. Public education is a right and every parent in America should have “outstanding” public education options for their children – including charter schools – which are a part of the public school system, Rauner said. He claimed there’s a “monopoly” on public education in terms of learning structure and called for competition and innovation. In response to claims that charters’ selective enrollment restricts certain students – namely minorities – from attending, Rauner said he hasn’t seen any documented instances but is willing to take all claims of discrimination seriously. He said the unionization of charter school teachers should be based on teachers’ and charters’ discretion. But where does the embattled Chicago State University fit into the governor’s support of public education? While the governor pledged to provide CSU with more funding in the state’s budget, he said “no comment” when asked if he would approve equitable instead of equal funding to address capital projects, campus staff, and other items that would transform the South Side institution. He pointed the finger at CSU’s former leadership for its current state of affairs and suggested it has received patronage from elected officials in Springfield. “Chicago State has been mismanaged, there’s been some bad behavior there,” said Rauner. “Their financial and educational performances are not any that any reasonable person would want to have. That’s just true, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a great place and provide a high quality of service.” And Rauner said he was unaware of any allegations that CSU only awarded a small percentage of its contracts to minority-owned vendors, but vowed to look into the issue. “I would think that Chicago State would especially be very supportive and sensitive to the issue of diversity and inclusion in their contracting,” said Rauner. Rauner, who recently appointed an advisory board to assist CSU, explained his selections – including former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas – were based on his familiarity with them and their integrity.

U.S. Department of Education

Newly confirmed U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has the governor’s confidence, according to a report by The Chicago Tribune, despite what some perceived to be a lack of relevant experience in public education. DeVos has been widely criticized for calling the U.S. public school system a “dead end.” Yet, Rauner said he does not see a conflict in his support of DeVos despite saying he and his wife, Diana, have always fought for high-quality public education.

Chicago’s 2017 Bud Billiken Parade Announces New Changes By Mary L. Datcher Defender Senior Staff Writer Last summer, The Chicago Defender Charities announced drastic changes would go into effect for the 87th historic parade. Every second Saturday of August, Bronzeville residents prepare for the second-largest parade in the country to take over their streets, fire up the grills, set out the lawn chairs and cheer on hundreds of talented youths. Due to rising costs and complaints of the parade’s long length, parade organizers decided to appeal to everyone’s concern. The number of participants was limited for each group, slots were cut down, passengers in open convertible vehicles reduced and the starting time was moved up from 10 a,m. to 9 a.m. Sounded like a fair deal, right? After the fallout of one of Chicago’s notable parade participants, the South Shore Drill team pulled out due to disappointing kids who would not be able to march in the parade. This move sent negative www.chicagodefender.com

ripples throughout the community and threatened the long-standing creditability of the Charities’ hard work and contribution to Chicago’s youth. This year, parade organizers met with community, faith and business leaders as well as public officials to ensure the continued success and positive presence that many Chicago residents look forward to. Among these changes include Chicago Defender Charities’ announcement of newly appointed president Myiti Sengstacke-Rice, granddaughter of the Chicago Defender founder, Robert Sengstacke Abbott. Dr. Marc Sengstacke will take on a new role as Director of Development, focusing on economic development and fundraising for the group. “It’s a new day. We’re moving in a new direction,” said Myiti Sengstacke-Rice. Additional updates include returning the start time to 10 a.m., increasing the number of parade and inviting HBCU marching bands units from 150 to 200, allowing to participate. A step up to gain more youth food vendors at the end of the parade route in Washington Park, involvement will be this year’s

Grand Marshal, three-time Grammy award-winning artist Chance the Rapper. He will take part in the festivities set for Aug. 12. Senior seating areas will be designated along the route to ensure residents can secure a premium location to view the parade. Having worked on the parade over the years, SVP of Operations Chaz Smith says senior residents and families bring all generations together for this special day. “We care about the comfort of our seniors and families that come to enjoy the parade. I am committed to ensuring the community, sponsors and parade participants have a great experience at the parade in 2017 and beyond.” In her new role, she is the parade coordinator and plans to overhaul the parade and re-engage the community. Community groups and activists who register are also welcome to participate.

Jumpstart to School Year The Bud Billiken Parade is a great jumpstart for the new school year for students nationwide. In its tradition, rain or shine, many me-

dia outlets, celebrities, dignitaries and the community come out. Participants have included President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Lena Horne, Michael Jordan, Frank Thomas and Muhammad Ali. Founded April 2, 1945, the Chicago Defender’s founder and publisher, Robert Sengstacke Abbott, created the non-profit charitable organization with the purpose of improving the quality of life for African-Americans. The parade’s route will begin at 39th and Cottage Grove and work its way onto King Drive, where it will end in Washington Park. Traditionally, it would be a day-long program, bringing out grill masters and the neighborhood candy and ice cone hustlers. With the onset of minor changes, we all realized how fast nearly nine decades of history can be dissipated by politics and stringent procedures. If ever a time where all branches of public service, organizations and churches come together for this special day, the Bud Billiken Parade has earned this priority and commitment.

ComEd Introduces High School Students To Provide Great Service, Clone To ‘Solar Spotlight’ STEM Program Yourself

By Dr. Sakira Jackson Defender Contributing Writer

Various high school students from the Chicago, Western Suburbs and Rockford area attend ComEd’s STEM Black History Month program at ComEd’s Training Center in Bridgeport. (Photo courtesy of ComEd) By Mary L. Datcher Defender Senior Staff Writer The start of Black History Month is non-stop with many companies and organizations hosting programs to engage young people in various ways. ComEd welcomed Chicago and Rockford high school students representing community groups, youth organizations and schools for its annual Black History Month campaign, ”Solar Spotlight”, a STEM program. The hands-on activities introduced students to company employee volunteers in preparation for learning how to design a 7-foot solar-powered Art Installation. Over the course of two weeks, students explored STEM through the emerging worlds of science, art and solar energy through some forms of African-American history. Kevin Woods, 15 and a freshman at Gilford High School in Rockford, Illinois, had enjoyed his time participating and says it’s been a fun experience. “We got to learn a lot of things — creating — which is something I like to do,” he said. “Building these experiences and learning about new people that can help connect you with internships. That’ll help me in college.” Professional guest speakers: Dr. Rashid Kamau interactive presentations on ancient Egyptian culture; Creative Director for The Movement Worldwide, Shala provided students insight on the emerging worlds of art, science, solar artwork and hieroglyphics. As teams branched off and students worked actively with other students from other schools and organizations, some were fascinated at the opportunities that careers in STEM can present. As one of many female students in attendance, 17-year-old Traja Williams’goals is to become a chemical engineer. ComEd’s program was beneficial for her.

“We learned about STEM and how solar energy can benefit the community. It’s added to my knowledge because engineering as a whole needs more female engineers.” ComEd executives, Sr. VP of External Affairs Melissa Washington, and VP of Distribution of Operations Isaac

Akridge were on hand with encouragement and awards to hand out to each student participant before they closed out the program. Over the next couple of weeks, Black History Month will be ending, but for many high school students, the knowledge shared and learned will be lasting .

Cloning is defined as “to make an identical copy.” That is exactly what you need to do to ensure that your customers are receiving the same level of excellent service that you would provide yourself. For example, if after every customer purchase you personally call them to ensure that they are satisfied with their purchase, then make that a part of your company’s sales process. As I am working with Dr. Sakira Jackson my coaching clients, I often find that they have a tendency to assume that employees will automatically behave in the same way as they (the CEO) would. This is generally not the case, not only because they don’t have the same vested interest in the business success, but also because they may never have learned to do some or all of the things you would do. So what are you to do . . . in order to get them to provide that high touch-high quality service your clients want and need. Clone yourself. C.L.O.N.E.: clear line of never-ending service. Take the time to write out the entire process of how do you service a customer from start to finish. From the initial contact as a lead, to prospect, to customer and beyond. Cloning is the method you can use to really define your business model and your unique value proposition. What is that you or your company do that is unique and valuable to your customers? As a business owner, you may or may not be aware of what exactly you do that keeps your customers coming back to you, especially, if you offer a product or service that is readily available from other suppliers. But if you have customers who are willing to bypass your competitors, then you have something that they value. In our next issue we will talk more about UVP, unique value propositions. Suffice to say you need to know what yours is in order to clone yourself. To take it a step further, when cloning, or creating an identical copy, you must define the steps used to deliver the UVP, and then and only then will you be able to replicate. If you are wondering what a business clone looks like, go to McDonald’s in any city and you will see cloning at its finest. McDonald’s clones teenagers, millennials, Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers to produce the McDonald‘s UVP every time. So do you have a method to clone yourself in your business? If you would like to learn how to create a clone in your business, email me at sakira@drsakira.com or call 773-491-1028 to learn more.

Palm Oil: The New Fat Under Fire levels of the harmful substances in palm oils and fats fell by half between 2010 and 2015, because of voluntary measures by producers to improve processing techniques. Ferrero has said it processes its palm oil at temperatures below 392 degrees F and with low pressure to minimize the harmful substances.

Palm Oil and Heart Health

By Kathleen Doheny of WebMD As artery-clogging trans fats continue to disappear from foods, one of the fats replacing it is coming under fire: palm oil. Palm oil is found in many foods, including margarines and spreads like Nutella, peanut butter (Jif, Smart Balance and others), and baked goods, including Girl Scout Cookies and Dunkin’ Donuts. A European safety agency has said that substances produced when palm oil is processed at high temperatures may cause cancer, based on animal studies. Experts already know palm oil is not the healthiest oil for your heart, and environmentalists have long warned that the rising demand for palm oil is jeopardizing the world’s rainforests and endangering some animals. Nutella’s maker, Ferrero, is fighting back with an advertising campaign saying that its palm oil spread can be part of a healthy diet. Like other companies, it says it is using the oil in a safe way while working to minimize deforestation. Palm oil comes from the palm tree fruit and is one of the few vegetable oils high in saturated fat, says Alice Lichtenstein, a senior scientist and director of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory at Tufts University’s Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center. A 2015 FDA rule requires food

manufacturers to eliminate trans fats in three years. As trans fats are being phased out of foods, the demand for palm oil has modestly increased, says Robert Collette, president of the Institute of Shortening and Edible Oils, an industry group. It gives texture and volume to baked goods and is also used in margarines and spreads, frostings, icings and candies.

Palm Oil and Cancer Risk In May, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) singled out palm oil as something that may cause cancer, based on studies in mice and rats, although it said the risk to humans “remains uncertain.” The agency studied harmful substances that form during food processing when vegetable oils are heated to temperatures of 392 degrees F or higher. The highest levels of these substances, known as glycidyl fatty acid esters, or GEs, are in palm oils and palm fat, followed by other oils and fats, according to the EFSA. Margarines, pastries and cakes are the main exposure sources for anyone over age 3. The agency’s panel concluded that average exposures are a concern for younger age groups, and high exposures are a concern for all age groups. The report does not include recommendations for “safe” levels. However, the panel concluded that an infant receiving only formula (which can contain palm oil) would be below the level of concern. The panel also said

Palm oil is not the first choice for heart health, because it is high in saturated fat, Lichtenstein says. “For heart health, we recommend people use the fats higher in polyunsaturated and low in saturated — ones like soybean and corn. If someone is going to use [palm oil] to prepare a favorite dish, or eat a food prepared with palm oil, it should be limited to special occasions,” she says. In one study, palm oil and partially hydrogenated soybean oil, compared with regular soybean and canola oil, drove up levels of LDL or “bad” cholesterol in those who already had slightly abnormal cholesterol levels. In another analysis, researchers concluded that eating palm oil leads to higher LDL cholesterol than eating vegetable oils low in saturated fats. It recommended cutting palm oil use in favor of vegetable oils low in saturated and trans fats. But many food makers using palm oil cite moderation and a long history of its use. Nutella’s website notes, “palm oil has been used in human nutrition for thousands of years.” The company says that it uses “mild heat treatments” to minimize harmful substances and that Nutella “is already in line with the new thresholds recommended by EFSA.” Girl Scouts USA says on its site, “our licensed bakers are committed to using as little palm oil as possible in Girl Scout Cookies and have committed to continuing to research viable alternatives.” Palm Oil and the Environment Palm oil isn’t just a health issue; its production is also destroying global forests and pushing animals out of native habitats, says Sharon Smith, campaign manager of the Tropical Forest and Climate Initiative for the Union of Concerned Scientists. “The main environmental concerns are tropical deforestation, primarily in Indonesia and Malaysia, where 85 to 95 percent of the world’s palm oil is produced,” she says. “We can’t tackle reducing the impact of global climate change if we don’t tackle deforestation.”

FINANCE

Some Tax Refunds Take Longer Than Others By Constant W. Watson III Defender Contributing Writer As millions of people begin filing their tax returns, the Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers about some basic tips to keep in mind about refunds. During the early parts of the tax season, taxpayers are anxious to get details about their refunds. In some social media, this can lead to misunderstandings and speculation about refunds. While the IRS issues more than 90 percent of federal tax refunds in less than 21 days, some refunds take longer. Recent legislation requires the IRS to hold refunds for tax returns claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) until mid-February. Other returns may require additional review for a variety of reasons and take longer. For example, the IRS, along with its partners in the states and the nation’s tax industry, continue to strengthen security reviews to help protect against identity theft and refund fraud. The IRS encourages taxpayers to file as they normally would. Many people mistakenly think that talking to the IRS or calling their tax professional is the best way to find out when they

will get their refund. In reality, the best way to check the status of a refund is online through the “Where’s My Refund?” tool at IRS.gov. Taxpayers eager to know when their refund will be arriving should use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool rather than calling and waiting on hold or ordering a tax transcript. The IRS updates the status of refunds once a day, usually overnight, so checking more than once a day will not produce new information. “Where’s My Refund?” has the same information available to IRS telephone assistors, so there is no need to call unless requested to do so by the refund tool. Ordering a tax transcript will not help taxpayers find out when they will get their refund. The IRS notes that the information on a transcript does not necessarily reflect the amount or timing of a refund. While taxpayers can use a transcript to validate past income and tax filing status, they should use “Where’s My Refund?” to check the status of their refund. The IRS will update “Where’s My Refund?” on both IRS.gov and the IRS2Go mobile app with projected deposit dates for early EITC and ACTC refund filers a few days after Feb. 15. Taxpayers claiming

If you have not filed your returns in several years, the IRS has several programs to settle your IRS debt. EITC or ACTC will not see a refund date on “Where’s My Refund?” until then. The IRS cautions taxpayers that these refunds likely will not start arriving in bank accounts or on debit cards until the week of Feb. 27 if there are no processing issues with the tax return and the taxpayer chose direct deposit. This additional period is be-

cause of several factors, including banking and financial systems needing time to process deposits. Taxpayers who have filed early in the filing season, but are claiming EITC or ACTC, should not expect their refund until the week of Feb. 27. The IRS reminds taxpayers that President’s Day weekend may impact when they get their refund since many financial institutions do not process payments on weekends or holidays. Taxpayers should always keep a copy of their tax return. If you have not filed your returns in several years, the IRS has several programs to settle your IRS debt.

Chicago Natives Receive Grammy Honors Amidst Lack of Diversity By Mary L. Datcher Defender Arts & Entertainment Editor On Sunday night, the music industry’s most recognizable night of the year, the 59th Annual Grammy Awards recognized some shining young talent. Chicago native Chance the Rapper was among the cool and hip elite of music creative — nominated for seven Grammys. In his gray suit and signature baseball cap, he happily accepted the award for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album. Why all the fanfare surrounding the kid from Chicago’s South Side Chatham community? He did what many thought he couldn’t pull off — he stayed consistent with his stance on remaining an indie artist. His millions of streams and downloads put pressure on the folks at The Recording Academy to change the criteria for artists like Chance to become eligible without retail distribution or physical units being the case. We look forward to seeing bigger things from Chancellor and his camp. Expect a celebratory bash back at the crib because in his acceptance, ”Glory be to God” and a BIG KUDOS to the Bennett family and Social Works team. Also, a wonderful congratulations to Lalah Hathaway on her stellar big night! The daughter of the late Soul music artist Donny Hathaway won two Grammys, winning for Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best R&B Album. Jennifer Hudson and the cast of The Color Purple won for Best Musical Theater Album. Multiple-Grammy songwriter Malik Yusef has won five Grammys working on several Kanye West albums since The College Dropout. He worked on Beyoncé’s Lemonade as one of the premiere songwriters on her album. Her win for Urban Contemporary Album of the Year is another feather in his hat and adds to his repertoire of esteemed work. Throughout this year’s program, many were in high anticipation for George Michael and Prince tributes — two iconic musical geniuses who passed in 2016.

14 February 15 - 21, 2017 • THE CHICAGO DEFENDER

Chance the Rapper estatic for his third Grammy win at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. Adele’s performance of Michael’s “Fastlove” was halted suddenly due to repeat of technical difficulties, but clearly the audience and viewers could see the emotional dedication caught the fellow British singer off-guard. Nonetheless, the song drew a standing ovation. Equally, the electric performance from Bruno Mars and his band members reminded so many Prince fans how much the ”purple one” is missed. Adele swept five Grammy wins including Song of the Year and Album of the Year, the latter only won by two African-American artists in the last two decades. This win did not go unnoticed, including by Adele, who clearly was a genuine fan and admirer of Beyoncé, a nominee in the same category. Addressing her from the stage, as she held the Grammy, said “the award belongs to you” and thanked her for empowering many, including “her Black friends.” The producer of the Grammys, the National Recording Academy of Arts and Sciences (NARAS), has been under fire from their political process of selecting more Urban artists, to its lack of aggressively pursuing more people of color into the Recording Academy’s membership — like critics of the Oscar awards. Four African-American artists have won in the Album of the Year category in the last two decades — an honor that is saved until the end of the ceremony. Lauryn Hill for The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1999), Outkast Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2004), Ray Charles, Genius Loves Company (2005), and Herbie Hancock – River: The Joni Letters in 2008.
