ver the years, Miller Brewing Company— now MillerCoors— has been one of Milwaukee’s best corporate citizens, and its commitment to the community starts right in its own ‘backyard.’ The Martin Drive neighborhood where the brewery’s corporate headquarters is located is pristine and secure.

Flanked by Washington Park, in an eclectic residential community, MillerCoors has a history of not only engaging with the community, but supporting and encouraging its employees to do the same.

Many MillerCoors’ employees donate their time, energy and talents to numerous organizations throughout the community—from the YMCA, to the Boys’ and Girls’ Club, to various environmental clean up initiatives, such as the Milwaukee River and Lincoln Creek. MillerCoors was the dream of two German entrepreneurs who came to America in the mid-19th Century. Frederick J. Miller purchased the Plank Road Brewery and founded Miller Brewing Com-

pany in 1855. He started his brewery using yeast that he carried in his pocket all the way from Europe. Adolph Coors worked as an apprentice in a brewery in Prussia during his teen years and stowed away on a ship to America to realize his dreams of becoming a brewer. He opened the Golden Brewery (later Coors Brewing Company) in Colorado in 1873. Today MillerCoors remains committed to its founders’ legacy of not only brewing good beer, but remembering and appreciating its roots. And, while MillerCoors is the second largest beer company in America, the company has somehow managed to maintain a small-town, accessibility and presence in the community. MillerCoors has not shortchanged this community—it’s been a long-time sponsor of the MillerCoors Free Rides on New Year’s and St. Patrick’s Day, has received an award from Mother’s Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) for its responsible drinking campaigns, and is sponsor of virtually every major event and entity in Milwaukee, such as the

Jamye Chapman is new SDC W-2 Eligibility and Assessment director

amye Chapman, the new Director of W-2 Eligibility and Assessment for the Social Development Commission (SDC) doesn’t think the embattled program needs a dramatic overhaul or turn around.

Far from it. The Milwaukee native and former senior auditor and W-2 regional administrator for the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) believes the program just needs an infusion of energy and utilize innovative procedures to better serve an expanding segment of the population needing assistance.

As a former DCF auditor familiar with W-2 oversight, Chapman--a graduate of Martin Luther College in Minnesota--praised SDC’s administration of the program, saying it has always met and exceeded state expectations in providing employment preparation services, case management and cash assistance to eligible low-income families. Chapman assumed his position in January, replacing Paula Lampley. “The objective of W-2 is to get people into jobs,” Chapman said during a recent interview at the SDC’s offices located at 4041 N. Richards St. The program does this by assessing an individual’s employability by having a W-2 eligible participant meet with a Financial and Employment Planner, who helps the person develop an employ-

Jamye Chapman ability plan. The participant is then transfered to a partner agency which works with the person for 12 days. Within that time frame, a person participates in orientation, fills-out paper work, and is moved into one of two workshops: The Job Club and “KEYS” (Keeping Employment Your Scope). The Job club assists participants looking for work and ready to enter the workforce, provide employment coaching and support participants in developing essential skills and various resources needed for employment search. “KEYS” offers workshops which determines a participants most appropriate career objectives and identifies what skills a person must enhance to improve their employability.

Black parents are not intelligent enough to make informed educational decisions for their children. That’s apparently the determination of the superintendent of Racine Unified School District, a conclusion that has sent shock waves of anger and cries of prejudice throughout the Racine and Milwaukee communities. Speaking at an informational hearing at Racine St. Catherine’s School in December, Racine Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Ann Laing challenged the intelligence of Black Milwaukee parents who participate in the Milwaukee Parental Choice program. Laing’s comments came during a discussion about the inclusion of St. Catherine in the parental school choice program, which was expanded to Racine last year. After erroneously asserting that “white families” were the primary beneficiaries of the Milwaukee program,’ Laing went on to say,

Question of the week: “How do you feel about the permanent injunction against the photo ID law?” Photos and question by Yvonne Kemp

“I am glad that it was done. I thought it was an unnecessary law with no clear goals as to why it was imposed in the first place.”

JOE N. MCCOY:

“I think it is good because this give people who want to vote a better chance to (do so).”

DELORA P. B.:

“I believe it is a plot to eliminate certain races and ethnic groups; any way to practice institutionalized racism. The Black vote does count; this is another way to stop it.”

Skip Robinson, director of player development and director of community relations for the Milwaukee Bucks, recently spoke to students at James Madison High School on the value of an education--both high school and college.

Dr. Ann Laing

“African Americans have primarily been the ones who are more prone to enroll their children in fly by night schools that cropped up after vouchers existed…and they don’t know how to make good choices for their children…they really don’t. “They didn’t have parents who made good choices for them or help them learn how to make good choices. So they don’t know how to do that.” Although Laing’s statements were made in December, a video of her

presentation was only made available last week. The video made its way to Facebook, where it has generated outcries from around the country, primarily from African Americans who are incensed by her comments. Brother Bob, president of Messmer Catholic Schools in Milwaukee was among those who joined in lambasting Laing’s comments. The usually mild mannered Brother Smith said he could empathize, if not readily agree with critics who assert Laing’s statement was racist. “Her comments are offensive and an affront to the citizens who show they care about their children by seeking out options they feel will provide them with opportunities to excel in life,” Brother Bob charged. Messmer Catholic Schools, which includes three elementary and a highly acclaimed high school serves a primarily minority student population. It was the first sectarian school (continued on page 5)

ELECTION WATCH 2012

The Milwaukee Community Journal March 21, 2012 Page 2 Madison Firefighter and state firefighter union president Mahlon Mitchell announced Monday his candidacy for Wisconsin Lt. Governor. He made his announcement in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park. Mitche was born in the city. “I have been a fire fighter for 15 years. When firefighters see an emergency we respond. We respond because we care about our community,� said Mitchell, a lieutenant in the Madison Fire Department. Mahlon “It’s a level of service and a calling that only a few decide to take. I look at being Lt. Governor as another part of this service. “As firefighters we have a motto: “All hands working.� Every firefighter on scene is doing a task or job to stabilize the tragedy. We need all hands working now in our community to deal with the emergency in Madison.� Mitchell will challenge incumbent Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch in the expected recall election with Gov. Scott

Mitchell

Walker. “This administration of Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch has destroyed and divided our state by catering to corporate special interests instead of the working men and women of Wisconsin,� Mitchell said. “Now, we need leaders that will bring our state back and work to create the jobs we need.� Mitchell is president of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin, the organization’s first African American and youngest to serve in that posi-

tion. In the winter of 2011, when the fight over collective bargaining began, Mitchell led the fire fighters in a monumental stand of solidarity with other public servants. Despite being exempted from the bill, Mitchell and his fellow firefighters marched on the capitol with fellow working families that were threatened by the Budget Repair Bill.

Rep. Young Invites Kathleen Falk to Discussion on Black Male Unemployment

MADISON – Representative Leon D. Young (D-Milwaukee) announced today he has extended an invitation to former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk to a roundtable discussion with black men on the subject of black male unemployment in the Milwaukee Metro area. This discussion would be held in conjunction with Rep. Young’s coalition aimed at employing 15,000 black men in the Milwaukee area. “If we are going to be serious in our effort in employing black men, it is vital that we include those black men who are affected,� said Rep. Young. “I believe that the lack of employment for black males in Milwaukee has statewide ramifications, which is why I invited Kathleen Falk to be a part of these discussions.� Earlier this month, Rep. Young announced the formation of

Milwaukee Democrats Endorse Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett for Re-election

he Democratic Party of Milwaukee County announced today that it has endorsed City of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett for re-election in the April General Election. "Tom Barrett has made it priority one to create and retain family supporting jobs in Milwaukee," said Democratic Party of Milwaukee County Chair Sachin Chheda. "Take a look at what Mayor Barrett has done with the Menomonee Valley. Under his leadership, a wasteland of brownfields has been transformed into a haven for cutting edge manufacturing right in the heart of the city." "It is especially clear that Mayor Barrett's style of leadership is to build consensus, rather than score poltiical points," continued Chheda. "He has never put his own political future before the needs of the people, unlike what we have seen from the leadership in Madison. He has made the hard, necessary decisions

a coalition to employ 15,000 black men in the Milwaukee Metro area. A recent study has shown that the employment rate of black males between the ages of 16 and 64 was 44.7 percent. Only the metro areas of Buffalo and Detroit have lower black male employment rates. “Any person campaigning to be the next governor of Wisconsin must be willing to confront this issue,� Rep. Young added. “Job creation must be a goal for any governor in this state. It is only fitting that some of these jobs would be in Milwaukee. Furthermore, it is common sense that there should be efforts to employ a segment of the population that has been traditionally underemployed.�

for all of Milwaukee, not just the privileged few." "I'm honored to be endorsed for another term by my fellow Democrats in Milwaukee," said Mayor Barrett. "I've been a member of the Democratic Party for many years, and was proud to serve as a Democrat in the Legislature and in Congress. "It's all about creating jobs and building a future for all of us," said Barrett. "We have a smart fiscal strategy, and we're focused on the priorities of working families here in Milwaukee. And, more than anything, we know we're all in this together, and that we shouldn't pursue a strategy of turning citizen against citizen." Party officials cited Mayor Barrett's efforts in job creation, public safety and fiscal responsibility, as well as his dedication to environmental responsibility, as key reasons for the endorsement. Mayor Barrett has racked up a plethora of accomplishments since he took office in 2004, including working with local law enforcement to significantly reduce violent crime in Milwaukee.

Murder of Florida teen reminicent of Emmitt Till

A 21st century Emmit Till. That’s the first thing that came to mind when we heard the details of the shooting death of Black 17year-old Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watchman who claimed his action was in “self-defense.” Comparing Martin to Till may seem like a stretch...but not by much. While Till, then age 14, made the mistake of whistling at a White woman that led to his murder at the hands of White racists in Money, Mississippi in 1955, Martin’s mistake was simply walking home from a local 7-Eleven store with Skittles and a can of iced tea. So much for the post-racism era many individuals, social observers and some poltiical leaders erro-

neously boasted about after the election of President Barack Obama. We said time and time again in previous editorials on the subject of race and the president that if you believe racism died with his election in 2008 the desert property at the South Pole is still available. Racist actions toward President Obama and other African Americans, Latinos and women--both physical and verbal--has increased in the last year and a half with the presidential elections drawing near and Republican candidates and conservatives in the media making racist and sexist statements almost everyday. What happened to Martin is the predictable fallout

from the racist vitriol that has been part of the public discourse for the last three-and-a-half years. Given that fact, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise what happened in Sandford, Florida. The only surprise has been the fact the police in that Florida town are covering up a crime and allowing a murderer to walk the streets with impunity. We call on the U.S. Justice Department and the F.B.I. to vigorously investigate this murder and arrest Zimmerman on charges of first-degree intentional homicide. Martin and his family deserve nothing less. We believe when such callous racist crimes are remembered or committed in the future, Martin’s name will be mentioned in the same breath as Till’s.

Memo to Southern Racists: Obama's a Christian

Steadfast in his faith, President Barack Obama has spent the past three years in the White House reaffirming that he is, indeed, a Christian. It's an absolute shame that Obama, America's first black president, has to constantly remind

some Americans that he's a Christian, but apparently there are many conservative voters in the Deep South who either don't believe Obama embraces Christianity or they don't care enough to learn the truth. Either way, it's a disturbing set

of circumstances. A new survey by Public Policy Polling shows is that a majority of Republicans in Alabama and Mississippi – where primary elections were held on Tuesday - believe Obama is a Muslim. In Alabama, 45 percent of Re-

publican voters think Obama is a Muslim, while 41 percent are not sure. In Mississippi, 52 percent of Republicans think Obama is Muslim, while 36 percent are not sure. Still, despite Obama's closedminded critics, the president con-

Ostracism by White teacher of 13-year-old Black student sounds the alarm – Again!

By Taki S. Raton Well, here we are. At this place – again. The alarm has been sounded – again and again. And we are still at this same place. Have not moved much. We are probably now beyond a “State of Emergency.” We might even be moving closer and closer to self-annihilation and self imposed genocide. If we do not care about the safety, welfare, education and development of our own children, how can we expect others to respect them – our babies/children – or us, for that matter? Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu called for a state of emergency when in 2001, he published his title: “State of Emergency:We Must Save African American Males.” Dr. James L. Moore, director of the Todd Anthony Bell National Resource Center on the campus of Ohio State University and one of the nation’s leading experts on Black males in education, titles his June, 2008 article appearing in the “Diverse: Issues in Higher Education” website: “Black Males in a State of Emergency.” He says that “African American males represent a state of emergency, whether you’re talking about health, education or the criminal justice system.” And Dr. John H. Jackson in the 2010 The Schott Foundation For Public Education report “Yes We Can: The Schott 50 State Report on Black Males in Public Education” list in their Table 1 the “Ten Lowest Performing States for Black Males,” with the lowest graduation rates enrolling more than 1, 600,000 Black males. This would represent 40% of the Black male public school population. This 2010 notation is under the heading: “States of Emergency”. Even going back 54 years ago to an August, 1958 paper called “The Reflector” as published by editor Thomas J. Sellers. Sellers reports that “Southern states spent forty million dollars less per year on Black education than they did on white education. Black education was again cited at that time to be in a “State of Emergency.” Nor did we appear to listen when this writer in a 2006 MCJ article consulted the April 4, 2006 edition of the Chicago “Courier” newspaper quoting Chicago based Black Star Project founder and executive director Phillip Jackson who noted that our children are fighting a war amongst themselves and against their communities: “Many Black children are out of control. They swear, fight, vandalize, challenge authority and exhibit overly aggressive behaviors. They have a reckless disregard for virtually any social norm, rules, or grace,” he says. Jackson adds that in cities across America, too many Black children “have little respect for authority and no fear of consequence for their actions. They won’t listen to well-meaning adults in their communities and they don’t respond to positive guidance. They do not fear or respect clergy, teachers, their parents or even the police. In some schools, the daily classroom environment is a war zone with the possibility of crippling violence between the children themselves and the world in which they operate.” Quoting a study by the Advancement Project entitled “Education on Lockdown: The Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track,” the document reports that in the Chicago public school system of 434,419 students, 29,700 students were suspended in the 20022003 school year and possibly up to 3,000 students were expelled in the 2003-2004 school year. That was in 2006. And a very small sampling at that. That was indeed a “State of Emergency” alarm. But nothing has changed. In fact, save for quoting stats which these articles under the above by-line have consistently underscored over the six years hence, conditions in our community with our children have worsened. Dr. Ron Daniels in the FinalCall.comNews says in his July 14, 2010 writing “Black America: A State of Emergency Without Urgency,” that he has come to the “disturbing conclusion” that there is “little urgency, spark, movement to protest, counter or overcome the ‘State of Emergency, in the urban centers of Black America.” He adds that: “There is an awareness that large numbers of Black people are suffering, but that awareness appears not to have provoked a common, coordinated and effective response from Black leaders and organizations or an uprising from the masses.” Daniels continues with the point that if we are “incapable or unwilling to mount an offensive to combat the conditions of the least among us, we cannot count on empathy and support from others. The key to the rescue of our communities is in our hands – but only if we have a sense of urgency and the collective will to mobilize, organize and fight to uplift our people.” So where is the local, regional and national alarm calling aid this time to a young sista, 13-year-old Jada Williams, another striking and horrid reflection of a “State of Emergency”? Where are our Black leaders, Black politicians, Black ministers, Black educators, Black fraternity and sorority models, adult civic stakeholders, Black “Community Excellence” awardees, Black newspaper reporters? Where are our “Who’s Who” in Black whatever city? This writer is about to sound the alarm again! Where are you? Ms. Williams was verbally persecuted, ostracized, humiliated and forced to leave her Rochester, New York School # 3 in response to an essay on her impressions of the autobiography, “The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas.” Her sharing

was to be included in a December, 2011 essay contest. But her contribution was never entered. According to the February 29, 2012 posting of YourBlackWorld.com, our Ms. Williams quoted a page where Douglass’s slave master, Mr. Auld, catches his wife teaching the then Frederick to read. Auld verbally lambasted his wife. The 13-yearold quotes Auld: “If you teach that nigger how to read, there will be no keeping him. It will forever unfit him to be a slave. He would once become unmanageable, and of no values to his master.” In her youthful yet eloquent conscious astuteness, Williams personalized Douglas to her own situation as a Black student in the Rochester school district. As noted in the BlackWorld writing, she commented in her essay how the “white teachers do not have enough control of the classroom to successfully teach the minority students at Rochester.” From all accounts, Jada stands out as a high achieving student “due to her own perseverance and diligence.” But it is revealed that many of her fellow Black classmates are not learning to read and that this, in her conclusion, is “a form of modern-day slavery. Their illiteracy holds them back in society.” She writes in her summary: “A grand price was paid in order for us to be where we are today. But in my mind, we should be a lot further. So again, I encourage the white teachers to instruct and I encourage my people to not just be a student, but become a learner.” In another February 29, 2012 writing in the DemocraticChronicle.com by Tiffany Lankes, it is disclosed that 75 percent of the students at School #3 “cannot read at a level appropriate for their age,” recounting Williams’ reference “to a modern day form of slavery.” Quoting her in the Lankes article: “When I find myself sitting in a crowded classroom where no real instruction is taking place, I can say history does repeat itself. The reality of this is that most of my peers cannot read, and therefore comprehend the materials that have been provided. So I feel like not much has changed. Just different people. A different era. The same old discrimination still resides in the hearts of the white man.” Her white English teacher was greatly offended by Williams’ prepared comments, returning to the BlackWorld account. The teacher copied the essay for other teachers and for the principal. The web article cites that following the circulation of their daughter’s essay among the faculty and administration of School #3, the mother and father began to receive phone calls from “numerous teachers” claiming that their daughter is “angry.” Mostly a straight-A student, Williams, notes the report, started receiving “very low grades” and was kicked out of class for a simple laugh and threatened with inschool suspension. There were several meetings with teachers and administrators. But none of the concerns of the parents over their daughter’s status at the school were answered or responded to with sincerity or due diligence. Her teachers refused to show her mother the tests or any work that she had supposedly executed “so poorly.” The teachers and administrators instead branded Jada as a “problem.” The parents decided to pull young Jada from School #3. There appeared to be some resistance to enroll her into other buildings as they were “quickly informed that the school was filled” and told to try a school that was far below Jada’s social norm upbringing and scholastic level: “During her first day at this new school, she witnessed four fights, and other students asked her if she was put here because she fights too much.” In summary, notes BlackWorld: “They took an exceptional student with the radical idea that kids should learn to read and put her in a school of throwaway students who are even more unmanageable then the average student in her previous school.” To protect her daughter, her mother had to remove young Jada from school altogether and quit her job so that she can stay home and take care of her. In a phone call to a source in Rochester who asked not to be identified, this writer was informed that only 5% of the students who graduate from the Rochester schools are “ready to go to college.” There was a further inference, which has respectfully yet to be confirmed, that the majority of the Rochester school board membership may be African American. In a writing by Mack Right of the Frederick Douglas Foundation of New York, the subhead is titled in reference to Williams’ leaving the Rochester school district that “They Kicked her off the Plantation.” He observes in his commentary that: “I’m not exactly sure why the teachers were offended. I can only surmise that it was Miss Williams’ thesis that her ‘white teachers,” due to their apparent inability to teach her and her Black classmates to read, were a part of a racist-based plan to keep Blacks uneducated, just as Frederick Douglass’ slave master had attempted during the time of slavery.” Quoting Williams: “This type of thinking is somewhat still prevalent in our society today. Most white teachers that I have come into contact with over the last several years of my life has failed to instruct us even today. The teachers are not as vocal about us not

tinues to make his case. "I have fallen on my knees with great regularity ... asking God for guidance not just in my personal life and my Christian walk, but in the life of this nation and in the values that hold us together and keep us strong," Obama told faith leaders at the National Prayer Breakfast last month. "I know that He will guide us. He always has, and He always will." "For me as a Christian," Obama said, "it coincides with Jesus' teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.'" Here was Obama, talking to a gathering of pastors and faith leaders from across the country for the third consecutive year, explaining his commitment to Christianity in a way that few presidents have articulated. "In my moments of prayer," Obama said. "I'm reminded that faith and values play an enormous role in motivating us to solve some of our most urgent problems, in keeping us going when we suffer setbacks, and opening our minds and our hearts to the needs of others." "I wake up each morning, and I say a brief prayer," the president added, "and I spend a little time in scripture and devotion." So, what will it take for some Americans to realize – and ultimately accept - that Obama is not a Muslim? And how many more times during the 2012 campaign will the president have to repeat himself and acknowledge that he's a Christian? Obama has been appealing to the right-wing fanatics for too long. In fact, a University of Georgia poll conducted during the 2008

THE MILWAUKEE COMMUNITY JOURNAL

presidential campaign showed that 20 percent of Americans continued to believe he was a Muslim. There are some warped minds the president will never change, so he should simply stop trying. No more reminders. No more acknowledgments. No more admissions documenting his faith. He's already said plenty. And here’s the worse part: One in four residents in Alabama and Mississippi – some of the same people who want to link the president to Islamic extremists - believe Obama's parents' interracial marriage should have been illegal. These are people who will never admit that Obama is a Christian and who still harbor deep-rooted hatred for "race mixing." Meanwhile, Obama has told faith leaders that his family did not go to church every week, but said his faith increased with age and that his Christian values have guided his tenure in the White House. "I thought about my own spiritual journey," Obama said. "Growing up in a household that wasn't particularly religious, going through my own period of doubt and confusion, finding Christ when I wasn't even looking for him so many years ago, possessing so many shortcomings that have been overcome by the simple grace of God." For the God-fearing folks in Alabama and Mississippi who still believe that Obama is a Muslim, these Christian comments from the president during the National Prayer Breakfast should be enough. And if not, then too bad. Get over it.

We are to be like a grain of wheat

BREAD IN THE WILDERNESS

his coming weekend we will celebrate the Fifth Sunday of Lent, with Palm Sunday following a week later on April 1, 2012. Our scripture readings are: Jeremiah 31: 31-34, Hebrew 5: 79, and John 12: 20-33.

Jeremiah spoke of a new covenant that God was making with His people, since our ancestors had broken the old covenant. And this new covenant would be within the person.

“I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people…. They shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.” This is the God of our ancestors that is the God of Jesus. This is a God of mercy and loving kindness, never a God of wrath and vengeance, as we so often portray God. Our Gospel, keeping with the fact that we are approaching Holy Week and the death of Jesus, speaks about a grain of wheat. “Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” Jesus was speaking about himself and his impending violent death. It was a sad time for him. He says, “Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say—‘Father, save me from this hour?’ No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour.” The end was near and He knew He would be “lifted up from the earth (fastened to the cross by nails) and He would “draw all people to myself.” What are we to make of all this? From this most violent death of Jesus we find a new way of living—a non-violent way of life that receives its power from our Baptism.

Wisconsin Church Begins 'Adults Only' Services for Sex Offenders

ChristianPost - A Wisconsin church has recently begun holding biweekly church "adults only" services, in part as a way to allow convicted sex offenders to worship. First Congregational United Church of Christ of Madison began holding the services earlier this year on every other Thursday evening, a time in which no children would be at their facilities. The Rev. Jerry Hancock, director of First Congregational's prison ministry, told The Christian Post that the idea for the service came through their efforts at witnessing to prisoners in general. "First Congregational United Church of Christ in Madison Wisconsin operates an active prison ministry," said Hancock. "Through our work with prisoners we realized that there might be a need for a service of this kind because many sex offenders cannot for legal reason or should not for therapeutic reasons attend worship service when children are present." The service is also for the benefit of those who would prefer to worship without children present. Since being implemented, the service has only garnered those who desire a child-free worship experience rather than recovering sex offenders. "We have had 10 to 12 church members attend the first two sessions which began on Feb. 23. No one in our target audience has attended," said Hancock. "This may be because it just takes time for word to spread. It may also be that the people we would like to serve have had very bad personal experiences with organized religion. Coming to church is an act of courage for them." Pat Nolan, vice president of Prison Fellowship Ministries, told CP that he approved of the "adults only" service concept from First Congregational, considering it "very creative." "This church is reaching out and having services because that is a problemsolving approach which is very good," said Nolan. "Many sex offenders I've talked to miss corporate worship and so if this were in their community and they heard about it they would be there."

We are baptized into the death and resurrection of Jesus. We become like Him in all things, especially His loving concern and compassion for all. How can we do this since all of us carry within ourselves the potential for hate and murder? It is only by the fact that we have been taken up into Christ and His Father that we can have any chance of living as peace-filled and joyfilled people. We, Like Jesus, must be lifted up and experience the words spoken by God at the time of Jesus’ impending death: “I have glorified it and will glorify it again.” Yes, the death of Jesus has become a thing of “glory” since it was the final act of violence that did not call for vengeance but absolute forgiveness of those who perpetrated his death. And we must count ourselves among the murderers. “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” We, the forgiven, are now commissioned to reach out to others with that same forgiveness. Please come and join us On Palm Sunday, April 1, at 10:30 AM; and again on Holy Thursday (April 5th) at 7:00 PM, Good Friday at 7:00 PM and at the Easter Vigil at 8:00 PM. Easter Sunday we worship at 8:00 and 10:30 AM. Our address: 4051 N. 25th Street, in the heart of the city.

Is it Godʼs vision or your desires?

A

fter taking time to intentionally hear from God, a Christian leader is charged with the responsibility of writing the vision in a clear and concise way so that those who are following their leadership have a clear sense of direction. The difficulty that many leaders have is distinguishing between the vision of God versus the plan based on ones own desires.

The vision of God provides a clear plan. “The Pastor will then develop for the team a curriculum that focuses on two main topics; the development of health leaders and the development of healthy congregation,” wrote Paul Borden in the book ‘Direct Hit: Aiming Real Leaders at the Mission Field.’ It is based on ethical principles and guides people to the ultimate goal that God set in motion before the foundation of the earth was framed. The vision of God has to be both taught and caught. There is a need to communicate the vision clearly enough for people to understand that they are not following the leader’s desires, but are following the direction of God. This is where the integrity of the leader is important because if the Christian leader is not careful they could initiate a situation where they are manipulating people emotionally, spiritually or financially in order to accomplish their own desires. These desires do not necessarily have to be negative or malicious in origin, however when a Christian leader dares to speak what they believe is from God, I believe they have a responsibility to be cer-

ANOINTED THOUGHTS

tain that the vision of God and the desires of their own hearts are not co-mingled. Many times leaders struggle with separating vision from desire and even finding the courage to share the vision of God. • How does a leader know that they have received a vision from the Lord? • How does a leader know a God vision from a good idea? • What does a leader do when the vision or instruction does not make sense? • Who holds a leader accountable for the accuracy of the vision? Is the implementation of the vision the responsibility of the Christian leader or the group of people being led? For example, if a leader presents the vision and it does not pass the “vote” of the congregation, is the leader held accountable for the failure to implement, or the church? • Is this vision for now or is it to be manifested in another time, location or generation? • What is God’s ultimate goal in speaking forth this vision? I believe that many times as a leader the vision will not make sense, the timing will not seem right, the resources will seem inadequate and everything will appear as though it can not be accomplished. We have to put our faith and trust in God. Can He do the same with us?

Wisconsin African American Tobacco Prevention Network teams up with Milwaukee youth to fight tobacco use in honor of National Kick Butts Day Youth-led advocacy day is nationally coordinated by Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids

Milwaukee youth are joining thousands of kids across the country who are taking part in Kick Butts Day, a nationwide initiative in which kids lead the effort to stop youth tobacco use. “Tobacco companies make smoking look cool in their ads, but that’s nothing but a lie,” said Asia Allen, 15. “I was sad to learn about how many African American people die because of tobacco, so I’m looking forward to being able to do something about it.” As part of the Kick Butts Day celebration, the Wisconsin African American Tobacco Prevention Network (www.waatpn.org) and the City of Milwaukee Tobacco-Free Alliance has teamed up with local teens from the Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club to literally “air out the tobacco industry’s dirty laundry” outside the Club, 3000 N. Sherman Blvd, March 21st from 4:00-6:00 p.m. To air out tobacco’s dirty laundry, the youth will visually express their feelings about tobacco on 123 tshirts that they will hang on clothes-

lines during rush hour for drivers and bystanders to see. Each year, 45,000 African Americans die from a tobacco related illness, according to the Campaign for Tobacco-free Kids. Sadly, this amounts to 123 African American deaths per day. Each tshirt hung on the clothesline will represent a life and help residents visualize the magnitude of this statistic. “Smoking is the number one cause of preventable death,” emphasized Michael Campbell, project manager, Wisconsin African American Tobacco Prevention Network (WAATPN). “Getting youth involved in tobacco related advocacy is not only a great way to help educate youth and the community, but it is also a great way to prevent future

generations from addiction and preventable death.” “Our youths are ecstatic about this day and they’ve been diligently preparing for it,” said Gregory Ware, manager of the Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club. “The partnership with WAATPN, the event and this critical cause all fit our mission of inspiring and empowering all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.” For more information about the Kick Butts Day event at Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club, contact Michael Campbell at mcampbell@waatpn.org.

MPD to help Next Door promote literacy

(continued from page 1) books; specifically infant board books, picture books and multi-cultural children’s books representing African American, Hispanic and Asian families. Pam Edyburn, Books for Kids Program Coordinator states: “We would like to see more books representing African American, Hispanic and Asian/Hmong cultures. This gives Next Door an opportunity to promote family literacy to all of the cultures we serve in the community.” Wendy’s Restaurants will provide a free junior frosty from 10 am to 3 pm for book donations collected at any of the nine participating Wendy’s Restaurant locations: (3050 S. Chase Ave, 633 W Capitol Drive, 627 E Capitol Drive, 2725 W Capitol Drive, 6225 W Capitol Drive, 4601 W North Ave, 2310 S. 43rd Street, 11201 W Silver Spring Drive and 8331 W Brown Deer Road). Books can also be collected at the African World Festival Offices from 9 am to 7 pm (275 West Wisconsin Ave) and District Three Police Station (2333 North 49th Street).

Chapman admits there are pressing concerns threatening SDC’s continued administration of the program, especially the emergency assistance portion of the $24.8 million W-2 contract the agency has with the state’s Department of Children and Families. SDC’s handling of its W-2 program has been in the uncomfortable glare of the mainstream media spotlight for several months. Media reports revealed SDC’s allegedly questionable documentation of the emergency assistance program for poor people, not having a cost allocation plan, the lack of proper documentation for the Job Access Loans program, which administers shortterm, no-interest loans designed to help with immediate expenses related to getting or keeping a job. Chapman has the charge of making sure SDC is compliant with the rules and regulations of the state in administering the program. “There have been challenges,” Chapman admitted. “All agencies have some of the same issues and challenges we have. But I can tell you not many--or few--agencies can say they met contract performance standards as SDC has. “We’re working to implement strategies to meet and exceed standards and allow people to look at SDC as leaders in the W-2 program,” Chapman said, stressing the agency now has systems in place that increases accountability and efficiency. Among the systems now in place: • An electronic system that will allow managers to immediately make decisions on the eligibility of applicants for emergency assistance, which is a support service available to help those affected by homelessness, fire or natural disaster. Emergency Assistance (EA) and W-2 are separate programs which utilizes the same funding source. The new system reduces the number of days it takes to determine a person’s eligibility. Currently the state allows five days to determine eligibility, something the agency had difficulty meeting in the past. Since the new system has been in place, SDC has reduced the determination time to 3.62 days, putting them 1.4 days ahead of schedule. Chapman said no other agency does emergency assistance. “We process 35,000 Emergency Assistance applications--which is more than the entire state and 10-times more than the next largest county per week.” • The implementation of a web-based purchasing system to enhance the ability to process payments. Instead of running it

through the agency’s finance department, the payment request will go through the web purchasing system currently used to do electronic check requests. Finance personnel will be able to view purchasing requests directly online. Chapman said these moves have helped resolve some of the problems that led to government reviews and a threatened termination of the emergency assistance portion of the W-2 contract. Several weeks ago, Chapman unveiled function-specific performance standards for the W-2 program, which lays out every function of W-2 facilitators. Training will also be more intense and policy specific with processes updated to match the process with agreements, contracts and policies. The SDC W-2 director also wants to put into place a proactive monitoring system that focuses on the agency’s compliance with W-2 guidelines so they can recognize and resolve challenges before they occur. “It’s a problem that has now been resolved. We’re now looking to improve other services and functions.” Chapman says the next challenge is changing the mind-set of W-2 participants to see the value of the program. “If they allow the program to work for them it can be a powerful path out of poverty,” he said, noting that many people still think of W-2 as welfare. “It’s not a welfare program. It’s a work program. We have to break through that mentality of getting dollars without putting in the effort of getting a job,” Chapman said. Chapman says SDC is the perfect fit to implement W-2, stressing no other agency is set-up like SDC to provide the services low-income families need. “There’s no comparison,” Chapman said. “You can walk into one building and get help with childcare (Headstart), get help with your taxes, or get help with W-2. “We help 800 people obtain and retain employment. It’s not our primary function. But we’ve done that over the course of our contract--help people find jobs” SDC CEO Debra Blanks has nothing but praise for Chapman and the job he has done in such a short time. She noted he was one of the top four candidates for the position. Blanks said during the one-on-one interview with Chapman, she was immediately convinced he would do a fantastic job. “And that’s exactly what he’s been doing. “He’s a very talented, qualified, compassionate leader,” Blanks said. “I believe he is exactly what we need to move W-2 forward. He’s a great asset as a member of our executive team.”

MillerCoors has also taken a leadership role in supplier diversity initiatives. Focused on increasing both their participation and spending with minority vendors, MillerCoors has a solid sup-

learning, but their actions speak volumes.” On Saturday, February 18, 2012, the Frederick Douglas Foundation of New York presented the first “Spirit of Freedom” award to Jada in recognition of her hard work and dedication to her commitment to learning. - This writer is not through with this story. An updated follow-up is definitely in order down the road. But I do want to sclose with select thoughts from Dr. Umar Abdullah Johnson ofrom an interview that I was both occasioned and blessed to have with him on January 26, 2012 in Chicago. In addition to being a nationally certified school psycholoogist and a featured presenter in the highly regarded “Hidden sColors” film, Dr. Johnson is also related and kinsmen by blood to Frederick Douglas. I will paraphrase his response to my first question in the interview, “How have Black parents and adults become so dedsensitized to the pain of our children, particularly our boys.” And, incidentally, Johnson’s response has absolutely no re-flection on Jada’s very loving and supportive parents. - The school psychologist asserts that one of the “biggest realsons” why our parents and the Black community is so desensitized to the pain of our children is “by way of the massive indoctrination of Black parents with the belief that the system

n

has the best interest of their children at heart.” He adds that many Black parents, “especially mothers,” would find it difficult to understand “that there is a psychoacademic war against Black children in general and Black boys in particular.” He says: “I think that the menticide of the Black parent is actually making them an active participant in the mis-education and extermination of their children because they are finding it difficult to believe that society would be determined to marginalize and harm an entire generation of children.” And this is exactly what we have allowed to happen over the past three decades to our babies – to our sons and daughters, to our magnificent budding youth struggling to mentally, emotionally, psychologically and even spiritually navigate their way through uncaring and insensitive elementary, middle and secondary public school learning corridors. The alarm has been sounded again. But we still refuse to step up and protect our children who in Johnson’s words cannot protect and fend for themselves. “They need their communities and their families to do that for them,” he positions. So how will we protect Jada and all of the Jada’s and Anthony’s under our charge and in our mist - be they our children, our neighbor’s children, our students, our future? So, here we are. At this same place – again.

AND GARDEN

s the snow melts, homeowners may get the itch to tend to their lawns. Plants are disheveled, the shrubs need pruning, and there are noticeable bare spots in the grass.

Spring is the ideal time to clean up after the effects of winter and prepare the lawn and gardens for summer. Before gardeners pull out their gardening gloves and tools, members of the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc., celebrating 50 years as the area’s leading home improvement and remodeling industry resource, offer spring lawn and garden tips. Preparation Service lawn mower. Sharpen the blade and adjust the cutting height. This will make mowing easier and keep the grass looking healthy. Clean out the garage or shed. Don’t wait until the last minute to organize tools. Discard items and make a list of supplies that need to be purchased, repaired, or replaced. Inspect the yard. If the lawn is snow-free and not too soggy, examine the yard for dead branches, thatch, bare spots, signs of damage caused by critters, or other issues that need to be addressed. Lawn Care Rake the lawn. Once the lawn is dry, it’s important to begin spring lawn care with raking. Rake dead grass, leaves, twigs, and other debris from the winter months. Raking also controls thatch, a dense mat that can form on the lawn. Use a pre-emergent herbicide. Apply pre-emergent herbicides to the lawn before weeds appear. If a weed is spotted during the inspection, pull it up and apply the herbicide. There is a short time frame

when pre-emergent herbicides can be applied. Check the lawn’s pH level. Test the soil to determine the soil’s acidity or alkalinity. If the soil is acidic, apply lime. Add sulfur if it is too alkaline. The local county extension can help homeowners determine the pH level and offer advice to solve the issue. Loosen compacted soil. Compaction is common in areas of high traffic. Use lawn aeration or tilling to loosen the soil. Reseed bare spots. The ideal time to reseed the entire lawn is fall, but it is helpful to reseed spots that were damaged by the winter weather in spring. Fertilize the grass. Don’t fertilize too early. Wait until the grass begins to grow and green. Allow grass to grow before mowing. Let the grass grow three to four inches before mowing. Leave the grass clippings on the lawn. Mow frequently, so no more than one-third inch is removed each time. Gardening and Planting Sow the seeds. Plant perennials in early spring so they’ll be established by summer. Wait until there is no threat of frost or high winds. Cut back perennials. If perennials were not cut back in the fall, it should be done in the spring. Unlike fall, don’t let the clippings drop. Collect and dispose them. Prune shrubbery. Ornamental grasses rose bushes, and other flowering shrubs should be pruned in the spring. Cut out dead, diseased, or damaged limbs. Don’t overdo it. The shrubs should keep a natural shape. Weed early. Getting a jump-start on weeding will save time during the summer months. Do a little at a time – 10 minutes in the morning or five minutes here and there. The Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council was chartered in July 1961, as a Chapter of the National Home Improvement Council. In May of 1982, the National Home Improvement Council merged with the National Remodelers Association to form NARI – the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. The Council’s goals of encouraging ethical conduct, professionalism, and sound business practices in the remodeling industry have led to the remodeling industry’s growth and made NARI a recognized authority in that industry. With over 800 members, the Milwaukee Chapter is the nation’s largest.

The event, a collaborative effort with Creative Images LLC, took place at the corporate headquarters of the ManpowerGroup, located at 100 Manpower Pl.

companies such as Molina Healthcare, Northwestern Mutual, US Cellular and Johnson Controls. Johonna Duckworth, lead consultant with Creative Images, led workshops for the teen audience on how to dress for interviews, jobs and other special functions. The fashion show featured models who benefitted from the Boys & Girls Clubs’ Career Development and Teen Services programs. The models successfully completed the programs to land jobs with the Clubs or with one of its corporate and community partners last summer. Clothing was provided by JCPenney in Menomonee Falls and Upscale Resale, a clothing store for men in Milwaukee’s Third Ward. Afterwards, all of the events’ young guests were able to select professional attire donated by employees at US Bank, Wells Fargo and Herzing Uni-

versity to wear for job interviews or employment. Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee is celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2012. Known as the oldest and largest youth-serving agency in Milwaukee, the Clubs offers high quality afterschool and summer programming for children ages 5-18, focusing on those who have major life obstacles, most often poverty. The Clubs operates 40 sites, which include six primary locations, 32 school sites, Camp Whitcomb/Mason in Hartland and an extension site at St. Charles Youth and Family Services in Milwaukee. Membership to the Clubs is only $5 per year, per child, but no one is ever turned away based on inability to pay.

“Building the Water Generation” comes as report highlights underrepresentation of women in science, technology, engineering and math fields

More than 100 young women who attend Milwaukee Public Schools high schools will spend Thursday at Discovery World learning about careers in science, the importance of clean water and Milwaukee’s role as a fresh water hub. The “Building the Water Generation” event, which begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 1 p.m., coincides with United Nations World Water Day. Discovery World has been designated a UN Global Compact Cities Innovating Centre. Students will spend time on the topic during the same week that an analysis from the Institute for Women¹s Policy Research highlighted the fact that while women make up half of the U.S. workforce, they hold just one in four of the jobs in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). MPS encourages girls and young women to get involved in science. Nearly half of the 5,500 district stu-

dents who take part in Project Lead the Way, an innovative STEM-focused program, are girls. Thursday¹s hands-on event, thanks to the district¹s partnership with Discovery World and sponsorship from the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, is yet another opportunity. The 100-plus young women who will attend the event study environmental science at Bay View High School, Riverside University High School, Vincent High School and the Washington High School of Information Technology. On Thursday, they will interact with women water experts from the Milwaukee Water Works, the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Discovery World staff along with a Milwaukee County supervisor. The students will learn first-hand about the Great Lakes environment, the importance of access to clean water, and invasive species along with career possibilities. The captain of the S/V Denis Sullivan will be on hand to talk about her sailing career. Students’ experiences will tie into the curriculum in the district’s comprehensive math and science plan. “MPS students will have an opportunity to connect with professionals in the field in an interactive, hands-on setting that focuses on the impact of water in our daily lives and how important access to clean water is,” said Sandra Schroeder, director of extended learning opportunities for MPS. The district is grateful to its community partners that are making that opportunity possible.

to join the state’s choice program. Messmer has among the highest Black graduation rates of any school in Milwaukee, with nearly 90% of its graduates going on to college. “Anybody who can make the comments (Laing did) is obviously ignorant, or has been living on another planet,” the Capuchin monk asserted. “The fact that she is the head of the Racine school system should raise flags.” Brother Bob said he would be eager to meet with Laing to ‘provide her with a history of the choice program as well as to refute her allegations.’ The local chapter of the Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO) was also quick to condemn Laing’s comments. The executive director of the Milwaukee chapter called the statements ‘shocking, disingenuous and blatantly prejudicial.’ “That a public official would make such inflammatory, prejudicial statements about Black families is nothing short of insulting,” said Naryan Leazer, executive director of McBAEO. “To generalize about Black parents, to imply they are ignorant --or stupid-- is totally unconscionable. She (Laing) paints with a broad bush, making assumptions that falsely characterizes Black people. How can she explain the thousands of concerned, active parents whose involvement has resulted in their children not only graduating from schools in Milwaukee, but obtaining college degrees? And can we assume these same Black parents she refers to can’t make good decision about sending their children to the Racine Public Schools as well? And if we follow her statements to their logical conclusion, I guess Black parents can’t make good choices about how to raise their children, what they should eat, their religions or their mores and values. BAEO is the nation’s leading parent advocacy organization. The organization has chapters in a dozen states and recently drew over 500 parents, activists and Black political figures to its annual symposium in Washington, D.C. BAEO champions educational options and parental empowerment initiatives. Former Racine Alderman Michael Shields said he too was perturbed by Laing’s comments and would be meeting with a group of Racine Black leaders to discuss the situation. Shields said he talked with a Racine school board member on Tuesday night about the comments. Shields said from his previous relationship with Laing he was giving her the benefit of the doubt, and assuming she didn’t understand what she was saying, or the negative feedback it would generate. Nonetheless, he is organizing Black leaders to arrange a meeting with the superintendent to seek clarification.

Milwaukee King fall short in WIAA Div. 1 championship game

MADISON – If this was indeed the last hurrah for the city of Madison to host the boys and girls state basketball tournament, the WIAA put on quite a show, beginning with the conclusion of the boys tournament last weekend and hosting the girls tournament this weekend. You won’t get an argument from at least one person if the WIAA decides to move the tournament to Green Bay beginning next year. Milwaukee King boys coach Jim Gosz is looking for a fresh start at a new venue. “I’ll be the first one up in Green Bay,” he said minutes after his Generals lost a heartbreaking game to Germantown in theA disappointed Milwaukee King coach Jim Gosz addresses the media Division 1 title game, Mar. 17, 72-69, atfollowing his team's loss to Germantown in the WIAA Division 1 title the Kohl Center. “I think Green Bay willgame in Madison, Mar. 17. do a great job. We need to have a Final Four experience where the town embraces it. Madison doesn’t want us. Come on, Green Bay, let’s go.” If you were in the post game press conference like I was and other media members, you would have seen the face of defeat because he felt bad for his players. Some breaks here and there in a highly anticipated game should have gone King’s way. Of course, the officiating wasn’t impartial, and some of the foul calls leaned towards Germantown’s way. As I saw the game courtside, I was thinking that most people wanted Germantown to win the game. During the game, I chatted with a couple of highly placed people on the WIAA staff, a man and a woman. The man didn’t like the way that King played their basketball. He thought they were out of control and the players were trying to take over the game instead of running their offense. I told the man that every team in the City Conference gets up and down the court that way. The teams in that conference press a lot and score lots of points. Sometimes the action gets out of control, but that’s how the City Conference is. He prefers the kind of ball that was played in the Division 2 title game between Onalaska and Kaukauna won by Onalaska. There were lots of jumpers made from kids who spent hours practicing their shots in the driveway and none of that fancy playground stuff. My opinion is that the WIAA stacked most of the city teams into one sectional because they don’t want to see more than one city school at state. Not too many fans would come to the Kohl Center to watch a King vs. Vincent or a Milwaukee Hamilton vs. King final now. The economic impact would suffer since it’s believed that people from Milwaukee don’t spend enough money there and might only bring three busloads and some MPS security guards, especially when outsiders think that city people don’t know how to act. But let’s go back to the game. The pressure that Germantown faced from King was something that they never experienced in all the games that they won in their 28-0 season. “Their pressure bothered us,” winning Germantown coach Steve Showalter said. “I told my guys before the game started . . . . ‘Don’t make me sit up on that table after the game and tell those guys that we weren’t ready for that pressure.’ We were ready for it. We knew that it was coming. It was a beast trying to handle it. Every trip down the floor was a war, every trip, the whole night.” The Generals were on a mission to win the title for the first time since 2004. They are the high school version of the Marquette men’s team. You looked at those kids and you knew that they were undersized. They were also hard workers who came to work every day with their lunch pails. One disadvantage that worked against King was a lack of size. “We didn’t have anything 6-11, 6-7, 6-5,” Gosz said. “And we got 6-2 hard kids, kids who just battle. That’s the way we are.” The WIAA threw King in the belly of the beast and the hardest Division 1 sectional out of the four. They won their sectional and the Division 1 semifinal game against Oshkosh North and looked for a flash of daylight in the title game. They were scrappy, and they made the Warhawks sweat for 31 minutes 55 seconds before a last second three-point try was no good. Without being critical of the officiating, Gosz probably wanted to know why Germantown had 37 trips to the free-throw line, making 29, and why his team got only 10 attempts, making five. Eight fouls were called on King in the last 5:30 of the game. Madison Memorial made their ninth straight trip to state. King was in Madison for the 13th time and Gosz has been a frequent visitor 11 times over his 22-year coaching career. Both teams have been mainstays in the state capitol and some people are tired of seeing Memorial and King here every year or every other year. I guess they want new blood. The Generals collected their fourth silver ball for being the runner-up to go with their five gold balls they have in their trophy case. But Gosz felt bad for his guys who were so close to beating the odds and paying back the WIAA for their ban from the 2009 playoffs for a rules violation. “I just feel for my kids,” Gosz said. “They worked their tails off all year and they’re just crushed. They’re absolutely crushed. We did our best.” Gosz got some fresh air in his time in Madison and noticed that maybe some people around the UW campus didn’t care about the state tournament because they were partying on St. Patrick’s day. “I walked along State St.,” he said, “and I don’t think that anyone knew that it was a state tournament going on here (Saturday), and I think that a change of venue is needed.”
