Reaching for the Stars and Stripes impossible to envision him as anything other than a success. After attaining two advanced degrees, and working on his third, it is easy to see that Arthur Green is one such student. Except his classroom, unlike the traditional brick and mortar schoolhouse, is the United States Armed Services. And Green’s professional aspirations don’t just stop with his next degree.

BY: Allena G. Berry In every classroom, among the stereotypical clowns and brownnosers, lays a student who works so diligently that it becomes almost

“I put my goals higher,” Green stated. Which can only be expected from a man that now serves as the Fifth Brigade Command Sergeant Major of the 75th Training Division Mission Command, headquartered in California. Green explained that this title put him as the senior Non-

Commissioned brigade.




Of course, Green has had a history of working hard. Citing his father, the late James E. Green, as his role model, Green understood that he must give 110% every day in order to accomplish his goals. “While most people are sleep, I’m up strategizing, thinking about the big picture,” Green noted, a characteristic that is a testament to his high personal standards. In the United States military, a Command Sergeant Major assists the Commander in ensuring that the unit runs efficiently and effectively. Green’s current command has over 450 soldiers reporting to him and the Brigadier General that serves as Commander, an accomplishment that cannot be overstated. However, Green, with the same determination that vetted him his current position after an extensive interviewing process, has dreams of continuing in the service.

Although he may be required to retire in fifteen years, Green believes that he can become a Command Sergeant Major for a Lieutenant General, a three-star position that would have over 5,000 soldiers in the command. “I have dreams,” Green said, “but I’m doing a lot of them right now.” Green is currently working on his Master’s Degree in Business Management, and frequently travels to California, Colorado, and Oregon for his military position. Although he still calls Racine home, he plans on continuing his extensive travel resume in places like South America and Europe. Through all the late night strategizing and hard work, Green is doing exactly what he envisioned himself doing; of course, he will continue to “put his goals higher.” If Green’s track record is any indication, it seems that those goals will soon become a reality.

You Gotta Have Faith BY: Allena G. Berry

The day was October 23, 2008. It was Robert Camel’s birthday. And it was the day his life would change forever. On this day, Camel would wake up feeling like he never felt before. He complained of feeling ill, not being able to walk, or move much at all without agonizing pain. Camel was rushed to St. Mary’s hospital in Racine, but was eventually transferred to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It was here that he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of cancer that originates from white blood cells that is prevalent among young men. “I was scared,” Camel recalled of first hearing his bleak diagnoses. “My world was crashing in.” Being only 22 at the time, Camel was in the prime of his life but was faced with the doctor’s prognosis of never being able to walk again and only having six months to live. A week after this life-altering announcement, Camel was rushed back to the hospital after another bout with the disease that left him in dire straits. Shortly after his arrival at the hospi-

Local News tal, Camel’s heart stopped beating. The doctors, working feverishly and with skill, were able to revive Camel, stating that it was nothing short of a miracle. But this would be one of many events that were described as miracles in Camel’s cancer ordeal. Camel had to go through nonstop treatment, enduring grueling chemotherapy sessions once a week for two years. Pale, thin, and sapped of all of his youthful energy, Camel would repeat to himself, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper,” from Isaiah 54:17. 2010 was another big year for Camel. After finishing his chemotherapy treatment, Camel became a minister and got married to the woman who had stuck with him throughout his battle with cancer. Some community members even organized a benefit for Camel to help pay the costs of health bills. In December 2011, Camel would receive another miracle. Camel went to the hospital for a MRI and CAT scan. His doctor, perplexed, looked at Camel and said, “There’s no way the person I first saw is you.” Camel was cancer free. Camel was overjoyed, and cites his faith as the contributing fac-

Page 5 The Insider News Wisconsin, May 15-31, 2012

tor in overcoming Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. More than three years after Camel was given only six months to live, Camel lives every day to the fullest. Camel reminds us all that, with a little faith, we, too, can live out lives in light of the little miracles we receive every day.

MOVIE REVIEW: Think Like A Man By Kam Williams Nationwide (April 23, 2012) -Comedian/actor/radio and television show host Steve Harvey shocked the world a few years ago when he added love guru to his repertoire with the publication of "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man." The popular relationship primer, which earned the #1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list. Â mapped out a step-by-step strategy designed to help any woman turn her man into Mr. Right merely by understanding and manipulating the male psyche. Think Like a Man, the movie, is less an adaptation of the book than a battle-ofthe-sexes romantic comedy revolving around a quartet of conniving females who secretly rely on the tenets of Steve's philosophy to try to land the men of their dreams. This proves easier said than done once the guys discover what the objects of their affection are up to, and then decide to beat them to the proverbial punch by reading the

opus themselves. Directed by Tim Story, the film features an A-list cast with stars in both the lead and supporting roles. Calling the playby-play is Kevin Hart, who does double duty as narrator and as Cedric, a trash-talking blowhard going through a difficult divorce. Luckily, the four ill-matched couples at the heart of the tale are so simplisticallydrawn that they're easy to keep straight. Earnest Dominic (Michael Ealy) is an unemployed chef who dreams of opening his own restaurant. He goes to extraordinary lengths to impress Lauren (Taraji P. Henson), a status-conscious corporate executive he thinks wouldn't give him the time of day

if she knew he didn't have a job or a Mercedes. Meanwhile, Michael (Terrence Jenkins) and single-mom Candace (Regina Hall) can never get together between the distracting demands of his meddling mother (Jenifer Lewis) and her precocious, 6 year-old son (Kaleel Harris). Then there's Kristen (Gabrielle Union) who has grown weary after 9 years of waiting for her immature boyfriend (Jerry Ferrara) to pop the question. And finally, we have Mya (Meagan Good) who refuses to sleep with hot-and-bothered Zeke (Romany Malco) for 90 days after having been seduced and abandoned by her previous suitor.

Overall, the banter is so laugh-out-loud funny that I strongly urge you to sit near the front of the theater, since the audience din drowned out a lot of dialogue at the screening this critic attended. Many of the film's most memorable moments arrive courtesy of celebs making cameo appearances, especially talk show host Wendy Williams, comedienne Luenell, hunky Morris Chestnut, The View's Sherri Shepherd, singer Chris Brown, pro basketball players Ron Artest and Lisa Leslie, and Steve Harvey himself. Still, I would be remiss in my duties if I failed to forewarn that the picture's politically-incorrect brand of humor is apt to offend those sensitive about homophobia, misogyny and the use of the N-word. One only hopes all is forgotten, if not necessarily forgiven, by the time the canoodling couples disappear into the sunset. The male mindset as the path to happily ever after. Who knew?

Healing For Heart

Untangle the Knots...One Day at a Time

by Joyce Meyer

Picture your life as a jumble of shoestrings all tied up in knots, each shoestring a different color. The different shoestrings represent the different elements of your life, such as your family, your job, etc. This jumble of knots could represent many of our lives—with everything all knotted up. Each knot represents a problem, and the process of untangling those knots and straightening out those problems is going to take a bit of time and effort. It took a long time to tie all those knots, and it will take some time to straighten them all out. I realize from my own experience that it often seems no progress is being made. You may feel you have so many problems that you are getting absolutely nowhere. However, you must keep in mind that even though you have a long way to go, you have also come a long way. The solution is to thank God for the progress you have made thus far, and trust Him to lead you to eventual healing—one day at a time. One of our problems is that in our modern, instantaneous society we tend to jump from one thing to another. We have come to expect everything to be quick and easy. It's difficult for us to have the patience to stick with a problem until we see a breakthrough, and that's why we need God's help. You see, God never gets in a hurry. He never quits or runs out of patience. He will deal with us about one particular thing,

and then He will let us rest for a while—but not too long. Soon He will come back and begin to work on something else. He will continue until, one by one, our knots are all untied. If it sometimes seems that you're not making any progress, it's because the Lord is untying your knots one at a time. It may be hard, and it may take time, but if you will commit yourself to the process of getting well, sooner or later you will see victory in your life and experience the freedom you have wanted for so long. In some things I experienced freedom in a few months or a year, but there was one area in my life that took fourteen long years to overcome. The important thing to remember is, no matter how long it takes, never give up, and never quit—keep at it. Maybe you're standing in the way of your own healing. Have you ever asked yourself, "Do I really want to get well?" Did you know there are people who really don't want to get well? It takes some people years to overcome their problems…and some never do. They don't really want to move past their problems. It seems

they've become accustomed to having those problems around, and they're just content to live with them. Sometimes people actually get addicted to having problems. It becomes their identity—their life. It defines everything they think, say and do. Their life seems to revolve around their problems. If you have a deep-seated and lingering disorder, you may be tempted to make that the focal point of your life. But I encourage you not to give in to that temptation. If you do, it will try to control your thinking and dominate every conversation you have. Don't let your life be taken over by your problems. If you really want to get well, you'll have to stop using your problem as a means of getting attention, sympathy or pity. When I used to complain to my husband, he would tell me, "Joyce, I'm not going to feel sorry for you." "I'm not trying to get you to feel sorry for me," I would protest. "Yes, you are," he would say. "And I'm not going to do it, because if I do, you will never get over your problems." That used to make me so mad I could

have beaten him to a pulp. We get angry with those who tell us the truth. And the truth is that before we can get well, we must really want to be well— body, soul and spirit. We must want to get well badly enough that we are willing to hear and accept the truth about our situation. Make a vow right now that from this moment on you are not going to waste any more of your valuable time feeling sorry for yourself and wallowing in self-pity over things you cannot change. Promise yourself that you'll stop using your problem as a crutch in your life. Instead, pledge that you will untangle the knots a little at a time, while living each day to the fullest, looking forward to what God has in store for you as you follow Him…one day at a time. Spirit.” What we need to do is walk in the Spirit. When we concentrate on walking in the Spirit, we won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh because we will be focused on God, His goodness, our relationship with Him, and His love for us. Other things will just dissipate because of the power of God in our life. Grace is power—plain and simple. It’s the power of God available to us in whatever amount we need.

What’s New?

Educating Moms and Changing Lives BY: Allena G. Berry This Mother’s Day, the individuals at Next Generation Now childcare want all new mothers to know how to keep their little ones safe. Alison Haas, a Family Advocate at Next Generation Now, located at 1220 Mound Avenue, teaches the Cribs for Kids program that educates mothers and any potential caregiver to prevent co-sleeping deaths. Co-sleeping is the practice of a child, less than a year old, sleeps in the same bed with the mother or other adult, rather than in a separate area designated for the child. “If you are sleeping with your kids, you could roll onto them or they could roll into you,” Haas explained. This type of sleeping arrangement could lead to the baby’s suffocation. Having blankets, stuffed animals, or even letting the child fall asleep on a soft surface, such as a couch, could also cause suffocation. The Cribs for Kids program aims to stop such preventable deaths. “We’re trying to do anything we can to bring that percentage down,” Haas said, when referencing Racine’s troubling statistic as the city with the highest infant mortality rate in the state of Wisconsin. Started by a group of individuals who saw cosleeping deaths as a contributing factor in Racine’s high infant mortality rate, the Cribs for Kids program educates parents on how to prevent suffocation. The program also provides various materials to assist parents in preventing cosleeping. Education is not just for mothers, however. Many co-sleeping deaths occur when someone other than his or her parents is caring for the child. Haas recommends that mothers discuss the

sleeping plan for the child with anyone that could come to care for the baby. “It’s not a secret,” Haas stated. “You need to talk [to others] about how you put your baby to sleep.” Next Generation Now provides many childcare services for parents, such as a parenting class on Tuesday evenings, a class on positive play on Thursday evenings, and a parent support group, which is held every third Wednesday of the month. The parent support group will be held May 16th this month. Each event has childcare, is free to attend, and also provides refreshment. The Cribs for Kids class is available for mothers who are at least eight months pregnant, or have a child that is under the age of one. Classes are held on Tuesdays at 9:30 am and Thursdays at 1:30 pm, but Haas frequently makes trips to homes or hospitals in order to share this important information. Next Generation asks that interested mothers be Racine residents. Please call Next Generation Now at 262-6351920 for more information on all of their classes.

Obama: Same-sex marriage should be legal By David Jackson President Obama became the first U.S. president to endorse same-sex marriage today, telling ABC News that it "should be legal." "I've just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Obama told ABC's Good Morning America. After years of what he had called an "evolving" view of the issues, Obama said family and friends gradually persuaded him that gay and lesbian couples should be treated the same as heterosexual ones. Facing a re-election bid in which gay rights are a hot button issue, Obama also said his endorsement is a personal view, and that states should set their own marriage laws. The interview took place a day after voters in North Carolina approved a constitutional ban on gay marriage. His comments also came within a few days of pro-gay marriage statements by Vice President Biden and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, increasing pressure on Obama from gay rights supporters. ABC News broke into regular programming to report Obama's comments. Mitt Romney, Obama's likely opponent in the Nov. 6 election, told a Denver television station he doesn't agree with Obama's assessment of gay marriage. "When these issues were raised in my state of Massachusetts I indicated my view which is I do not favor marriage between people of the same gender and I don't favor civil unions if they are identical to marriage other than by name," the former governor said. "My view is that domestic partnership benefits, hospital visitation rights and the like are appropriate but the others are not." Aides said Obama intended to make the announcement before the Democratic convention in early September. But the intense media scrutiny given to the comments by Biden and Duncan pushed up the

timetable. They also said the gay marriage issue would not be a major part of their campaign, and do not know how or if it will affect the outcome of the election. That said, the Obama re-election team posted video of the ABC interview on its campaign website. Gay rights organization praised the president's announcement. The Human Rights Campaign, which has long lobbied Obama to take such a step, said Obama "made history by boldly stating that gay and lesbian Americans should be fully and equally part of the fabric of American society." HRC President Joe Solmonese said Obama's "words will no doubt inspire thousands more conversations around kitchen tables and in church pews," promoting equality for gay couples. The Family Research Council, a conservative group, called Obama's decision disappointing, but not surprising. FRC President Tony Perkins predicted that the president would suffer for it at the ballot box. "As demonstrated by yesterday's overwhelming vote in North Carolina, redefining marriage remains outside the mainstream of American politics," Perkins said. "Especially in the critical battleground states and among minority voters." Perkins said said that 10 of 16 battleground states that have "marriage amendments" could be at risk after Obama's announcement. "Today's announcement almost ensures that marriage will again be a major issue in the presidential election," Perkins

said. Once an opponent of gay marriage, Obama said he changed his views in part because of the "incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships" he has seen among friends and staff. Obama said his views also changed as he worked to end the military ban on openly gay servicemembers, the former policy known as "don't ask, don't tell." Views of gay marriage also tend to be "generational," Obama said, telling Robin Roberts of ABC that most young people he has met -even very conservative Republicans in college -- tend to be more accepting of same-sex couples. Obama said daughters Malia and Sasha believe discrimination against gay marriage "doesn't make sense to them and frankly, that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective." First lady Michelle Obama has also

Page 14 The Insider News Wisconsin, May 15-31, 2012

shaped his outlook, Obama said. "This is something that, you know, we've talked about over the years and she, you know, she feels the same way, she feels the same way that I do," Obama said. The president said he and Mrs. Obama "are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others." "But, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf," he added, "but it's also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated." Obama's decision is drawing a variety of strong reactions on social media.
