Annie J. Jackson celebrates 100 years of life
She’s the lone surviving charter member of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church
Annie J. Jackson celebrated 100 years of life this past Monday, November 18, 2013. A celebration of her birth was held Saturday, at Old Country Buffet, 6538 W. Brown Deer Road. Jackson is the only living charter member (one of 17 original congregants) of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, which was founded in May of 1956, at 2747 N, 4th St. Jackson served on the Mission Board and was its first president. She was also an usher. Even

though she is now wheel chair bound and unable to attend church services, Jackson continues to support the church she loves spiritually and financially. Born November 18, 1913 in Hopten, Ala., Jackson grew up in Adamsville, Ala., where she grew up and enjoyed farm life with her parents and four siblings. Reflecting on her century of life, Jackson noted because her family produced everything they needed, she didn’t realize growing up how poor they were. Jackson said one of the most vivid memories from her childhood was going to work with her mother. She remembered how patient her mother was instructing her in the art of southern cooking and cleaning. Jackson said cooking is still her favorite activity. As a matter of fact she is already preparing for Thanksgiving. She has already cleaned 30Ibs of chitter(continued on page 2) www.communityjournal.net 25 Cents BULK RATE

AT&T Pioneers donate over 530 winter clothing items to help keep area students warm this winter
Students from two of Milwaukee Public Schools’ elementary schools will have winter clothing items to help keep them warm this winter, thanks to a donation from the AT&T Pioneers. The AT&T Pioneers have donated 535 winter children’s items, including hats, scarves, gloves, coats, snow pants, shirts and socks for students at Clarke Street School and Benjamin Franklin School in Milwaukee. The Pioneers have collected winter clothes for Wisconsin students through their annual “Warm Smiles for Kids” program since 2008. “With winter fast approaching, we know that not every Wisconsin family has the means to provide their children with the clothes they need to stay warm this winter season,” said Scott T. VanderSanden, president of AT&T Wisconsin. “The AT&T Pioneers are helping to fill that need by collecting warm clothes and donating them to Milwaukee schools where children may lack proper winter attire.” This year, employees at 10 AT&T offices throughout the state, including in Milwaukee, Brookfield, Waukesha, Appleton and Madison, are holding collections and accepting donations through January 31. Individuals in Milwaukee interested in donating items for the cause may contact Jeannette St. Onge with the AT&T Pioneers at 414-227-6745 or firstname.lastname@example.org. “We are thrilled to receive these donations from the AT&T Pioneers to help keep our students warm this winter,” said Daryl Burns, principal of Clarke Street School. “With Wisconsin’s often harsh winters, we want to do what we can to make sure all of our students have the warm winter clothing they need, and these donations will go a long way toward filling that need.” Items that are being collected through January 31 include new or gently used winter coats, hats, mittens, scarves and socks. All sizes of children’s items are needed, including all sizes of coats for younger children, as well as all sizes of adult coats for teenagers and older children. “These donations will help struggling Milwaukee families keep their kids warm this winter,” said State Rep. Leon Young (D-Milwaukee). “It is wonderful to see volunteer organizations like the AT&T Pioneers stepping up to give back to their communities and make a difference in the lives of these children.” The AT&T Pioneers are a local organization of employees and retirees who volunteer their time to various community causes.

U.S. Health Secretary Sebelius promotes ACA in Milwaukee
(continued on page 2)
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius visited Milwaukee on November 15, to promote the Affordable Care Act (ACA). During her visit, Secretary Sebelius met with leaders who are working locally to ensure those in need of health insurance take advantage of ACA. Dr. Patricia McManus, President & CEO of Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin (BHCW), talked with Sebelius about the agency being one of a few entities in Wisconsin that received a Navigator grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. BHCW provides ACA outreach, education and enrollment assistance for Milwaukee County.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: PULSE OF THE COMMUNITY Why is church/religion good for PHOTO AND QUESTION BY YVONNE KEMP the Black community?
REV. LOUIS E. SIBLEY, III (PASTOR OF MT. ZION MBC): “The church relates to the totality of man. We are social, physical, psychological and spiritual. Whenever a part of us is not being met or addressed, we are off balanced and inadequte. Without God our life is totally off.”
WASHINGTON — Health care spending since the 2010 passage of the Affordable Care Act has risen by 1.3% a year, the lowest rate ever recorded, and health care inflation is the lowest it has been in 50 years, a report released Wednesday by the White House shows. An economy hobbled by the recession and 2008 economic crisis played a role in some of the reduced spending growth, officials said, but the report cited "structural change" caused, in part, by the law. The report's release comes as President Obama and his administration struggle with the political fallout associated with the problem-filled opening of the federal health care exchange, the online marketplace where uninsured Americans can shop for and buy insurance. The exchange's website, HealthCare.gov, opened Oct. 1 and has been hampered by outages and delays, particularly in its first weeks of operation. Per capita spending has grown at a rate of 1.3% since 2010, the lowest recorded rate for any three-year period on record, according to the report, which was conducted by the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Price inflation rose by 1%, the council found — the lowest since 1962. Because of cost reductions, the Congressional Budget Office reduced Medicare and Medicaid spending projections in 2020 by $147 billion since 2010, the council noted. The lower increases in spending as the economy has recovered is a sign
CYNTHIA THOMAS (MT. ZION MBC): “We as a Black community need to start putting God first in our lives, and praying more as a family.”
MICHELE TAYLOR-EVANS: “(The) Church is important to the Black community. We are the one organization that is constant. The church needs to be more visable to all people.”
GUY THOMAS: “The church is part of our culture. It is a good place to come when you’re having problems. It relieves stress and you get to praise the Lord.”

Annie J. Jackson celebrates 100 years of life
(continued from page 1) lings! Jackson said it gives her a great deal of satisfaction cooking the holiday meal for her entire family; having them sit down at the table and thank God for all their blessings. After the death of her mother, Jackson left Adamsville and moved with her two children, Jonathan and Arlene (both deceased) to Milwaukee in 1945 to join her sister and two brothers. Jackson found work at the Patrick Cudahy meat packing company. She was also worked at Veteran’s Hospital and American Can Company, where she worked for 23 years before retiring in 1976. In retirement, Jackson was a volunteer with Lutheran Services calling the elderly and determining their needs
and refer them to needed services. On March 12, 1950, Jackson married Junior Lee Jackson, who was the proprietor of the Party House Inn, located at 234 E. Vine Street. He held the position for 30 years. As an entrepreneur, Mr. Jackson was able to provide help for many people in the community. The couple had one child together, Valerie Jackson. Mr. Jackson died in 1982. Jackson also helped her daughter Arlene raise her two children—Jackson’s grandchildren—Venus (A.J. Cutter, spouse) and Raven. Despite being confined to a wheelchair, Jackson still pursues her other passion besides cooking, fishing. Happy 100th Annie Jackson! And may you have many more!

Rise in health care spending lowest on record
(continued from page 1) the changes are structural, said Jason Furman, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Prices remain low, he said, and Medicare spending, which he said doesn't typically reflect trends, remains low. One key area in which the law helped drive costs down, the report said, are the provisions that allow Medicare to reduce overpayments to providers and health plans. Another factor, Furman said, are fines for hospitals that readmit Medicare patients within 30 days of their release and the increased use of accountable care organizations. "For a long time, [readmission rates]were hovering around 19%, and now they are continuing to go straight down," Furman said. "A very important part of the structural story is the Affordable Care Act," he said. The Consumer Price Index statistics released Wednesday showed that "year over year health inflation slowed," Furman said. Private insurance spending grew at an annual rate of 1.6% in the last three years, Furman said, while Medicare spending had 0.0% growth rate and Medicaid spending was "actually minus 0.5%." "Health spending is certainly cyclical when you see a downturn," Furman said. But increases in cost-sharing, such as high-deductible insurance plans, as well as medications coming off patent, helped decrease costs, Furman said.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “This isn’t a revolution of Black against White; this is a revolution of right against wrong. And right has never lost!��� --Dick Gregory
President Obama’s healthcare initiative deserves a chance to work!
Your Milwaukee Community Journal has supported the Affordable Health Care since its initiation because we believe it is in the best interest of our readers and the U.S. economy overall. When we see what lack of health care has wrought in premature deaths; over-burdened emergency rooms; limited regular access to follow-up; and the development of healthcare choices that potentially can reduce or eliminate statistical disparities that plague the African American communities throughout the country, we know we must support it. Take a look at our October 30 issue where we isolated a full page to navigating the Affordable Care Act web site. As you know, the president has been taking a lot of heat for the breakdowns of the website designed to allow individuals to sign-up for health insurance. He also bore the brunt of criticism for allegedly “lying” to the American people about being able to keep health insurance they already have. We believe the insurance companies should be coming forward with their failures on the backend portion of the website, as well, and they too owe the American people an apology. We believe the insurance companies could have easily adjusted pre-existing policies that would have allowed their policy holders to keep their insurance and not be unceremoniously dumped just because their policy supposedly didn’t meet the ACA’s criteria. Another group that should offer Mia Culpa’s (apologies) to the American people are Congressional Republicans who, since the president first initiated the idea of universal healthcare for Americans, have fought tooth-and-nail to keep it from passing several years ago. Their heartless shut down of the government made it virtually impossible for the Obama Administration and government monitors of the website to rectify the problems before they got out of hand. Thankfully, the country has already benefitted from the
ACA. Even before the website was officially launched in October, the positive impact of the initiative could be seen. Insurance companies could no longer deny coverage to individuals with pre-existing conditions such as asthma, MS, leukemia, sickle cell disease, heart conditions, and high blood pressure. That major accomplishment—in and of itself—makes the president’s initiative already an overwhelming success. The Administration and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, under the guidance of Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, are working hard to eliminate the bugs in the Marketplace enrollment website. Each day, more and more people are able to go to the site and sign-up without any problems. Healthcare and health advocacy organizations are working diligently to meet citizens where they are and explain the ACA’s benefits, help them navigate the website and enroll them onsite at various forums held around the city and Black community (and we’re sure around the nation) explaining the healthcare initiative and helping the uninsured and underinsured navigate the website and enroll them at various local enrollment sites we’ve been listing in the MCJ. Nothing is perfect…except the Almighty! Some Democratic Congressional legislators who have suddenly become weak at the knees in their support of the president and the ACA because of upcoming mid-term elections, should rediscover their collective backbones and support the president in this difficult time. Politically, Republicans should not be allowed to topple a historic piece of health legislation. They owe it to the president; and they owe it to the Americans people! Universal healthcare can still be a “win-win” for the American people. We will continue to heartily support the initiative.”
JFK’s Civil Rights Legacy 50 Years of Myth and Fact
By Earl Ofari Hutchinson, Courtesy of New America Media
here’s been as much myth as fact regarding John F. Kennedy’s civil rights legacy in the more than fifty years before, during and especially after his assassination on November 22, 1963.
In the days before he delivered his now famed presidential inaugural address on Friday, January 20, 1961, two of his principal advisors Louis Martin and Harris Wofford battled hard to get Kennedy to add two words “at home” to a pivotal sentence in his speech that addressed human rights. Kennedy meant the human rights fight that the U.S. waged internationally against Communism. The “at home” referred to the battle for civil rights in America. Kennedy reluctantly added the words. That re-
luctance typified the wariness that Kennedy had in making civil rights a centerpiece of his presidency. The myth and fact about his civil rights legacy came jarringly together in the quip from his wife and widow Jackie Kennedy on his assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, ”He didn’t even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil rights.” Jackie in the national trauma after his murder understood that Kennedy’s place in history would be even more firmly established if he were seen as the civil rights president, rather than a president who was forced under extreme duress to champion civil rights. In the decade before he won the White House, Kennedy said almost nothing about civil rights. In 1957, as a senator he voted against the 1957 civil rights bill. His opposition has been spun two ways; one cynical, one charitable. The cynical spin is he opposed it to appease Southern Democrats because he had an eye on a presidential run in 1960. The charitable spin is that he thought the bill was too
weak and ineffectual. Three years later though he ignored the angry shouts from Southern Democrats and lobbied for a forceful civil rights plank in the Democratic Party's 1960 platform. During the presidential campaign he publicly pledged to end segregation in federally subsidized public housing “with the stroke of a pen.” Despite a mass campaign for him to keep his promise, he foot dragged for months in signing the order. This was not hypocrisy, or racial faint heartedness. There was a brutal political calculus at work. In 1961, Southern Democrats, all staunch segregationists, had an iron grip on the House. They held 11 of 19 committee chairmanships and in the Senate two-thirds of its standing committees. Kennedy did not have anything near a governing mandate to prod, cajole, and arm twist Southern racial obstructionists in Congress following his nail bite, squeaky 1960 presidential election win over Richard Nixon. But if he had would he? The answer is probably a no. His expertise, passion, and focus then were on foreign policy, more particularly, trying to contain, if not best, the Soviet Union on everything from the nuclear arms race to influence in emerging Third World nations. The bloody desegregation clashes at the University of Mississippi and the bloody assaults on freedom riders in Alabama, however, could not be ignored. But even here there was a hard political calculus that struggled side by side with the moral calculus. African-American voters made a major difference in his narrow election win over Nixon, aided in large part by a massive black voter shift to him in direct response to his famed phone call to Dr. Martin Luther King’s family following King’s jailing in Georgia for contempt of court stemming from a civil rights protest. Kennedy had a keen eye on the black vote and its potential to be a crucial factor in future national elections. That included his almost certain reelection bid in 1964. The tipping point was the spectacle of women and children beaten, hosed, and gassed by brutal (continued on page 7)

Reflections (Letter One)
By Joseph Heru Cook
Your story isn’t perfect, no story with meaning ever is, but it’s yours, and that’s reason enough to cherish it. Cherish it, we have too. No one else will. Those distant from and closist to our culture will judge you as a stereotype: A black woman who had her first child as a teen and two more unwed. I do believe there is some truth in all stereotypes, but it certainly isn’t the whole truth. It certainly isn’t the Joseph Heru Cook whole you. Who you were, who you are, and who you are becoming is a story of hurt and hope, love and lust, unhealthy family ties and finding one’s true self. In essence, it’s not just your story, it’s your mother’s story, our sister’s story, explored and expounded on so that our daughters won’t repeat this story. And although you, a beautiful queen, is the subject matter, it’s not just a feminine story. Without you, I see myself, not on a romantic level of love poems and rose petals, but the parallels of our process and our progress binds us into a union. Coming of Age The first time I laid eyes on you, you were fourteen, I was thirteen. It was the summer of “98” and you were exiting the 27th street bus on your way to my house. I watched you exit the bus and walk north in my direction. As I sat on my porch on the opposite corner of the bus stop, I watched you sashay my way. You were draped down in a floral pattern summer dress and sandals separated your precious feet from the piercing hot concrete. As you walked my way, I first noticed your length (tall like a model), then your rich brown skin (smooth and soft), as you got closer, I noticed a face without blemish, and ultimately I observed your smile that wasn’t seductive or pretentious, but authentic. It was one of those smiles that made other people smile when they witnessed it. On the surface all was picture perfect. But beneath your surface was a scar and many more scabs delivered to you in your childhood, by witnessing the brutal beatings of your mother by the hand of your father. Then having your mother verbally abuse you by saying you never liked her because you “supposedly” sided with your father during those beatings. How does a girl process that Shamela? Where did you store that pain, in what areas of your body is it hidden? And while the beatings may have stopped, you watched and were victim to your parents’ addiction. Your father is still plagued with addiction. Your mother recovered, but it seems like a part of her was lost forever. She lost a piece of herself somewhere Shamela, and a part of you was lost too. A womanchild can’t go through trauma and come of age healthy without help, without healing. Neither can a manchild. My trauma began when I was a child. There were times when my foster brother used to beat my siblings and I during mother’s work hours. As a child, I told myself that once I got older I was going to get payback. But as I came of age, I wasn’t possessed by revenge, and revenge didn’t prevail. What prevailed were feelings of weakness that overcame me when I couldn’t protect my younger siblings. It’s a feeling that I still deal with, a feeling that resurfaced when my [younger] brother committed suicide in ‘09. Bullying was one of the hands that pushed him over the edge. A fleeting thought was I should smash my foster brother for causing a pain I never processed. During this period of abuse, I witnessed the actual death of my father and didn’t process that either. I didn’t speak to a close loved one or a professional. I didn’t have the words at the time. That’s why children should have healthy adults around, to help them understand themselves, and the events shaping them. My mother underwent trauma in her childhood and early adult years. She buried her only true love. The head of my home and my life was suffering from age-old pain. She loved me dearly, but in areas she didn’t deal with in her own life, she couldn’t help me deal with mine in my life. All these events we carried with us, and they merged the day you and I met. We started to date and eventually you began to run your mother’s daycare. You were valued by her based on how much you worked, not on how much you were truly worth. So you devalued your worth, and for a while your dysfunction was your guiding force. Our dysfunction was our guiding force. Yours led you to look for love in men. Mine led me to look for fatherly or brotherly love in the streets. We were looking for others to give us something that we first had to give ourselves. In the end, I ended up trying to be like the older homies, which led me to prison at the age of seventeen. You had your first child with one of the older homies at the age of seventeen. We bear the same tribal scars that stem from similar sources and both went

Yes, it is Christ the King Sunday, but our king is not like any other king; not like Saul, David, Solomon or any other king that has ruled at some place and time. And that reality is very hard for us to understand since we want a king to push people around that we don't like.
We want a king to bring righteous judgment on the heads of all those sinners out there. We. like our Jewish ancestors, want a "real" king to rule with power and might. And we get a king whose throne is a cross and who has been described as hanging on a tree. What do we make of this? We are followers of this "king." And if we are true followers, our lives must also radiate the loving forgiveness that Jesus

BREAD IN THE
by Fr. Carl Diederichs, All Saints Catholic Church showed on the Cross. "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." And to the thief: "today you will be with me in paradise.' This is the heart of our faith: loving, constant forgiveness of those who hurt and hate us. This is the message of The King. This does not mean rolling over and playing dead, however. Our vocation is to constantly preach the Good News of non-violence and love of all. We, like Jesus, must spend our lives reaching out, speaking out, and shouting out for justice. And there are many issues today that demand we stand up; health care for all, a decent job for everyone, good health insurance, the end of racism and the Jim Crow culture that claims privilege for white people.
St. Mark AME Church recently held its annual Community Business Bazaar. Vendors who participated in the event showcased, for sale, household items, jewelry, scarves, holiday decorations, homemade baked goods. There was also a gift shop for holiday shopping. The annual community bazaar also included a free health fair and screenings for blood pressure, blood sugar and BMI (Body Mass Index), and a presentation about the Affordable Health Care Plan.

And our identity with Jesus comes from our Baptism. At our baptism we were anointed with the Holy Chrism as a Priest, Prophet and King (I say servant leader). With this "new birth" with water and the Holy Spirit our lives become one with Jesus and his mission and ministry. In the Our Father we pray: They kingdom come, thy will be done ON EARTH as it is in heaven. Each day our prayer and works should be making that Kingdom come. Too often, we find Christians sitting on their hands, disengaged from the work of making justice and peace a reality. They wait for the Second Coming, thinking that then God will come with fire and wrath and set things right. The biblical scholar Dominic Crossans has another idea: "The Second Coming of Christ is not an event that we should expect to happen soon, violently, or literally. The Second Coming of Christ is what will happen when we Christians finally accept that the First Coming was the Only Coming and start to cooperate with its divine presence." And cooperating with the divine presence within us is the heart of our vocation. With Christ the King you and I can "make all things new."
‘Forever Jones’: The newest addition to reality TV families
EURweb.com Forever JONES becomes the latest gospel act to take to reality TV. They look to offer an intimate look at the interaction of music and family in their Bounce TV show “Forever Jones. The Jones’ join the likes of fellow gospel acts such as Mary Mary and The Sheards. I think what you’ll find in watching our reality show is that we’re not a perfect family at all, whatsoever,” said D’Jeniele, the eldest sibling who serves as songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist for the band. “But in our family we’re keeping God center, where we’re allowing Him to guide [us] through our everyday issues that we go through and that we deal with like every other family out there.” Being compared to shows such as “The Sheards” and “Mary Mary” is an inevitable thing. With obvious similarities beyond just the genre of music, each show offer the opportunities for fans to see what life is like offstage for these artists. “I loved seeing KiKi talk about wanting to get an apartment [on 'The Sheards'],” D’Jeniele said. Forever JONES the group is comprised of parents Kim and Dewitt Jones (married for more than 34 years) and children D’Jeniele, Dominique, Dewitt IV, Judah and Mya. They are considered a band on the rise. Their aspirations are to expand beyond the success of their Grammy-nominated and Stellar Award-winning smash, “He Wants it All.” The position of being humble and working on camera to build something will be endearing to fans and inspiring to other up-and-coming artists. “I think there are a lot of people who feel helpless,” said Dominique, the group’s vocalist, co-writer, acoustic
guitarist and keyboardist. “They don’t know what to do. They’re trying to wait on God, and they don’t understand certain business portions of the music industry, so we’re so open to opening up those doors and letting people see that.” With seven members of the family, we get a first look at how they are able to keep the groups’ vision first; even while being pulled in different directions. The first show reveals how Kim and Dominique were offered solo record deals by their label, EMI Gospel. This was an attempt to draw more buzz towards the group but the next forever JONES album would be delayed for at least two years. On the other end, Judah is headed off to Kansas State University on a football scholarship and D’Jeniele is caught in the daily grind of singing while also serving as wife to husband Nate and being a mother to two young daughters. The mother of the clan, Kim, practices “godly conflict resolution” in handling the chaos in the family. No matter what, the Jones’ keep God first, marking the very reason Kim believes they have succeeded in music and in life. “One thing I’d love for [viewers] to take away is that family is doable,” said Kim, “but don’t do it without The Creator.” Keep up with the Joneses on Bounce TV Wednesday nights at 9 ET/6 PT.
TD Jakes on using media: There are more people in theaters than in pews T.D. Jakes recently discussed his new TV show, upcoming film and how he has utilized modern technology to reach the masses on a spiritual level. While he is nationally known as a pastor Jakes has also gained recognition for producing popular African-American films, such as Jumping the Broom, Sparkle and Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day. Recently he went all in on the Preachers Of LA. for doing a reality show. “The great commission calls Chris-

Minute Meditation: Prayer for trust, love
o you really trust people? The answer to that question in this day and age is no. We are bombarded everyday with actions of people that misuse trust. We pray that our family and friends are not victims of crimes where trust is violated.
Even banks and financial advisers we once regarded with high regard have wiped their feet on our welcome mats. How do we get over it? How do we manage it? We try to face life with conviction that we won’t continue the behavior. Today let’s try and ask in our prayer to give us back what has been ripped away.
O Lord, we ask for a boundless confidence and trust in Your divine mercy, and the courage to accept the crosses and sufferings which bring immense goodness to our souls and that of Your Church. Help us to love You with a pure and contrite heart, and to humble ourselves beneath Your cross, as we climb the mountain of holiness, carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory. May we receive You with great faith and love and allow You to act in us, as You desire for your greater glory. O Jesus, most adorable Heart and eternal fountain of Divine Love, may our prayer find favor before the Divine Majesty of Your heavenly Father. Amen. May you rest in safety and security wherever you are.

Take Action Update on... During Medicare Open Progress over the weekend Enrollment By Julie Green Bataille By Chris Abbott
According to a recent survey, more than 60 percent of Medicare beneficiaries have never shopped around to find health or prescription drug coverage that might better suit their needs, despite their annual opportunity to do so during the Open Enrollment Period (Oct. 15 to Dec. 7). That’s unfortunate because Medicare is not a one-size-fits-all program, and a lot can change in a year in terms of people’s health status and budget, as well as the plans that are available. Perhaps even more concerning is the confusion surrounding the new state health insurance marketplaces (also called “exchanges”). The survey found that more than a third of older adults who are aware of the exchanges incorrectly believe that Medicare beneficiaries can shop for and enroll in Medicare coverage through them. Simply put: People cannot enroll in Medicare plans through the exchanges. Decisions about health coverage are important and personal. I encourage the more than 140,700 Medicare beneficiaries in the Milwaukee area as well as their caregivers to take action during open enrollment by evaluating their options and deciding if they should switch to a new plan that would better meet their needs. The Open Enrollment Period for Medicare began on Oct. 15 and continues until Dec. 7. Like in years past, people can shop for and compare plans in their area at www.Medicare.gov. Chris Abbott is the regional vice president of UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement in Milwaukee. Serving nearly one in five Medicare beneficiaries, UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement is the largest business dedicated to the health and well-being of seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries.
ACA Enrollment and Health Fair
Over the past few weeks, we’ve made measurable progress to improve HealthCare.gov, addressing both software glitches and hardware upgrades–all of which will make a meaningful difference in the consumer experience. I’m pleased to say that, as of today, we’ve cleared more items from our punch list that will have a direct, positive impact on consumers using the site. The pace and quality of execution on bug fixes and hardware upgrades intensified when QSSI came in as general contractor and thanks to their management and coordination with CMS leadership and our other contractors we made progress over the weekend implementing important fixes. Nearly half of the fixes resolved issues specifically related to issues within the application and another set of fixes focused on improving Plan Compare shopping functionality. Some of the most consumer-facing examples of improvements are: • Issues that were preventing some users from proceeding through the income information of the online application have been fixed. • Users can now select “weekly,” for the frequency they receive unemployment benefits. In the Plan Compare shopping: • When consumers choose a Catastrophic coverage plan, the available dental coverage for that plan now appears properly. • When users save plan information in the Plan Compare section, those results now display correctly. In addition to these software fixes that significantly improve the user experience, we also increased system capacity. This upgrade is part of an ongoing hardware improvement process that will help keep the system stable with growing volume, improving overall system performance. We have a lot more work to do but as this work to date demonstrates, HealthCare.gov is getting better and improving performance and user experiences each week. We will continue to make improvements and we won’t stop working until every American who wants it gains access to new options for quality, affordable health coverage.

MILWAUKEE – Two high-profile venues are playing host to stunning artwork created by the students at Milwaukee Public Schools’ Ronald Reagan College Preparatory High School, one of six International Baccalaureate schools in the MPS family. Visitors to the rotunda at Milwaukee City Hall – 200 E. Wells Street, Milwaukee 53202 – have the chance to see Reagan students’ moving, honest, self-reflective photo collages and emotional essays that reflect the joy, pain and resilience of Milwaukee youth. The work is the result of a creative arts alliance between award-winning photographer Paul Calhoun and KnowThyself, a character development and creative expression program for middle and high school students in 10 MPS schools. The “Voices of the Young Showcase” was on display at City Hall from November 4 through November 16.
Elementary Answer: Improving kids' health improves their minds
Tips for high schools seniors on picking the right college
Selecting the right college means not only choosing where you’ll live for the next four years, but finding the best fit for your personality, interests and your family’s financial situation. It’s often one of the biggest decisions many teens have ever faced. If you’re considering several colleges, the best way to compare them is to make a list of the things that are most important to you and see how each school stacks up. You might include proximity to home, athletics or arts programs, campus size, etc. When listing pros and cons, consider cost, academics, social life and the impact it will have on your future career. Consider costs According to the most recent Annual Survey of Colleges by the College Board, students attending a fouryear college in their own state will spend an average of $17,860 on tuition, fees and room and board during the 2012-2013 academic year. The average price tag jumps to $39,518 per year for a private four-year college1. To cover the costs, parents and students may need to consider student loans, financial aid and scholarships. You can get a list of available scholarships from your high school guidance counselor as well as the colleges and universities you want to attend. It’s important to start your scholarship search early and look at all possible sources. For example, Foresters™, an international life insurance provider committed to family well-being, offers the Foresters Competitive Scholarship Program2, which awards up to 250 tuition scholarships for higher learning worth up to $8,000 each in the US and Canada for eligible members and their spouses, children and grandchildren. Rank your priorities Cost may be one of the biggest factors when choosing the right college, but there are many things to consider while researching each prospective school. Though some people judge a school solely on published college
Beginning November 10 and continuing through January 5, 2014, encaustic (hot wax) pieces created by 60 Reagan juniors to evoke memories of travel and adventure will be on display at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, 608 New York Avenue, Sheboygan 53081. The “Choose Your Own Adventure” show is part of the Arts Center’s “THE OPEN EYE” series. The center is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is by voluntary donation. “I’m excited that the general public has the opportunity to see what we at Reagan see every day: the extraordinary artwork created by our students under the direction of International Baccalaureate art teacher Chad Sperzel-Wuchterl,” Reagan Principal Mike Roemer said. Over the past two years, MPS has added more than 90 art, music and physical education specialists into its schools.

rankings, it may be more important to find the rank of specific departments within those schools. A top medical school or culinary program could be part of a school that doesn’t have a high overall ranking. Assessing what you value most in an educational program will help put you on the path to success. !arrow down top choices Plan a few campus visits to get a feel for campus size, dorm life, the school’s resources and how helpful school staff will be. Finally, make sure any scholarship you might be awarded can be used at the schools you have on your short list. For example, Foresters Competitive Scholarship can be used for tuition at any vocational or trade school, college or university offering a full-time academic program of two years or more. If you find yourself overwhelmed by all of the choices, just make the best decision you can with the information you have. Many students change majors during their college days. What may be the best fit academically now can change as quickly as what you want to be when you graduate.
NewsUSA - The brain develops faster during early childhood and more than any other time in our life. In children, it is a magnificent thinking machine that learns and grows by interacting with the world. Not surprisingly, experts say that the foods kids eat not only fuel their bodies but their minds as well. "Research shows that healthy eating can improve children's concentration and help them do better in the school," says Janice Baranowski from Baylor University in Houston. "Getting proper nutrients is especially important for young brains that are still growing and developing." The modern paradox is that, for all of its conveniences, there are more demands on children's attention these ... what we put into our days, and if not managed properly, kids' bodies is can easily lead to unhealthy minds and bodies. directly related to how The following tips will give you ideas on how to give your kids a well their minds will grow healthy, balanced life: and work.

In turn, forgo the fast food and instead, spend more money on groceries that are good for you and your family. * Get moving. If you want your kids to get off the couch (and away from the video games), get the whole family moving their bodies. Be it a bike ride, a walk, or even chasing each other around the local park, exercise has been shown to give the brain a boost. * Drink more water. Drinking water is crucial to maintaining good health, but not all waters are created equal. While tap and bottled water aid in hydrating kids' bodies, a better choice might be alkaline water such as Alkame. One bonus to ionized water is that it has smaller molecule clusters that are able to permeate a body's cells and hydrate much more effectively. This makes the water and minerals better able to be absorbed by little bodies and allows cells to flood out the toxins within. Another added benefit? Alkame Water contains a powerful source of antioxidants that boost the immune system. * Pick up a book. One way the brain rewires itself is through reading. It's the best way for children to exercise and flex this marvelous organ. Challenging a child's brain early in life builds up more "cognitive reserve."

JFK’s Civil Rights Legacy

The barbarous scenes were beamed globally, that and the eloquent heart wrenching letter and appeal by Dr. King from his Birmingham jail cell propelled Kennedy to do what he had long been urged to do and deliver the definitive statement on civil rights. He did on June 11, 1963. He piggybacked on the words and sentiments King expressed in his letter about rights, justice, inequality, and the moral and political shame and disgrace to the nation of racial bigotry. King and civil rights leaders applauded Kennedy’s words. But King also saw more political pragmatism than moral outrage in it. He quipped that he was “battling for the minds and the hearts of men in Asia and Africa.” This was probably true.

Yet the equal truth was that it didn’t much matter whether Kennedy was motivated by pragmatism or idealism, crisis or conscience, he had spoken, and this marked the major turning point for the nation on civil rights. If Kennedy had lived would he have fought hard for passage of the 1964 landmark civil rights bill, or been stonewalled by his party’s racists, and forced to accept a watered down bill? An assassin’s bullet insured that that question would remain forever unanswered. Fifty years after that horrific November day in Dallas, Kennedy’s civil rights legacy is an enduring and deserved fact, despite the many myths surrounding it.

hen I was in college in Michigan a police officer stopped me while I was driving two miles outside of campus because I happened to “fit the description” of a suspect with an arrest warrant.
I knew I had not committed any crime and was not the suspect. Nevertheless, I cooperated with the cop, gave him my dri- Atty. Anthony Jackson ver’s license, and asked what was the reason for the stop. Eventually, after verifying my driver’s license the police officer allowed me to leave, and stated I could go to the Ann Arbor police station to confirm his assumption. This real example demonstrates what the United States Supreme Court has identified as a “Terry Stop.” At issue in a Terry Stop, is whether the police officer had justified grounds to stop the person or the vehicle. The Supreme Court has held that the Fourth Amendment permits a police officer to stop and briefly detain a person if the officer has reasonable suspicion supported by articulable facts that criminal activity may be afoot. This suspicion must be based on something more than a hunch. A hunch entirely based on a generic description of a person’s race likely violates the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection under the law. An officer must point to some other specific factors justifying the stop like the high crime in an area, a furtive movement, or physical evidence like the smell or smoke of marijuana or a bulge in a person’s waist demonstrating a handgun. The fact that I happened to be black, similar to the targeted suspected was too generic to form the basis for reasonable suspicion, especially considering other factors the police officer should have considered like the out of state vehicle I was driving, the other passengers in the car, and my proximity to campus (a low crime area). So, if you have been stopped by the police and subsequently arrested, it is important to determine the police officer’s justifications for the stop. When a police officer decides to stop and question a person on the sole rationale of a person’s race, ethnicity, or national origin, such a method is unjustified.
