The Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival lit up downtown’s parks and streets for the 15th season during its switch-flipping ceremony, the Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival Kick- Off Extravaganza, Thursday November 21, 2013, in Pere Marquette Park. Festivities began with a holiday variety show which included performance ice sculpting by Ice Beat Factory; live music by Spider George & The Web and The Tempters; skits by The Rep and First Stage; and dancing by Danceworks Youth Performance Company and Studio VIA. The show’s guest of honor, Santa Claus, flipped the switch on downtown’s décor with Mayor Tom Barrett, County Executive Chris Abele and Alderman Bob Bauman. A holiday -themed fireworks display topped off the night. Free hot cocoa and cookies were available, compliments of Cousins Subs® on Old World Third and State Streets. Following the park lighting, families were invited to tour downtown Milwaukee’s sights with free Jingle Bus rides presented by T-Mobile Operated by Wireless Vision, LLC. Lighted scenes include “Community Spirit Park” at Cathedral Square Park, “Electric Elves” at Pere Marquette Park and “Musical Bears” at Zeidler Union Square. The Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival will illuminate downtown parks and streets Nov. 21 through Dec. 29.

Some of SDC’s Senior Companion volunteers. More than 70 senior volunteers have been recognized for their successful efforts to improve the lives of others. Volunteers for the Senior Companion Program of the Social Development Commission (SDC) were singled out at a Recognition Luncheon. Senior Companions are older adults who volunteer to make regular home visits to the homebound and provide in-home services that include light housework, setting up and going to doctor’s appointments, shopping, and just being a friend. That support has been found to help the homebound remain living independently longer in their own homes. Curtis Marshall of the Wisconsin Division of Public Health was the guest speaker and he told the senior volunteers that their efforts are

helping end the social isolation that many homebound feel. He said there is another benefit to their efforts, that of providing an example to coming generations of the value of volunteering. He urged the Senior Companions to continue their efforts to better the quality of life for those whom they serve. SDC CEO George P. Hinton also thanked the volunteers for their efforts. He said they need to Curtis Marshall of the State Division of Public Health and realize the value Mattie Payne of SDC’s Senior Companion Program at the of the work that Volunteer Recognition Luncheon. they achieve in

Our Time

Let’s take back Thanksgiving

The story of the origins of Thanksgiving in America is one told year after year, but never gets old. On the “First Thanksgiving” in 1621, after the Pilgrims’ first harvest in the New World, they had a feast that lasted three days and was attended by both Pilgrims and Native Americans. They ate delicious food, downed wonderful drinks, and after they thanked God for their blessings, they rushed out to the nearest department store and fought off hundreds of other people to get epic discounts on clothes and electronics. Wait … well, the latter sounds a little funny — a little off. That’s actually because it never happened. Thanksgiving is a national holiday primarily celebrated in the U.S. and Canada as a day of giving thanks for our blessings — it has historical roots in religious tradition. For a long time, Thanksgiving was a guaranteed day of rest for everybody. It was an opportunity to get a break from work, spend time with family and friends, enjoy, possibly overindulge, when it comes to turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries and the other standard fixings of the holiday. Then, the next day, “Black Friday,” was the “kick off ” to Christmas, with millions of individuals braving the cold weather super early in the morning

to buy gifts for outrageously low prices. Year after year, the stores kept opening earlier. But now, a whole bunch of retailers, including JC Penney, Kmart, Target and Walmart, will open their doors on Thanksgiving Day. We’re not here to say they are in the wrong — there’s a demand for those stores to open, so who are we to say they shouldn’t make money? That said, the problem is there is a demand for stores to open on Thanksgiving Day. As a result, employees will be forced to leave their families and clock in at the office if indeed they get scheduled for a shift on Thursday. Why is it so hard for us as a society to take one day to relax with our loved ones and appreciate what we have rather than worry

about what we need? We’re so wrapped up in preparing for Christmas that we’re taking away from Thanksgiving, and if we’re not careful, we’ll destroy it. Retailers are opening on Thanksgiving Day, but it doesn’t mean we have to go to the stores. Enjoy your holiday — spend time with loved ones, eat some good food, watch a little football or the Macy’s Parade. After all, if you’re planning to brave “Black Friday” the next morning, you’ll need your rest. Otherwise, let’s just rename Thanksgiving “ThanksRetailers.”

Thanksgiving Quotes! "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice." -Meister Eckhart "Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude." – E.P. Powell " So once in every year we throng. Upon a day apart, To praise the Lord with feast and song. In thankfulness of heart." - Arthur Guiterman, The First Thanksgiving "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." – John Fitzgerald Kennedy "Remember God's bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!" – Henry Ward Beecher

My first Sunday in Burkina Faso was really remarkable. At the time, I was roaming the countryside with Jonas Yogo, my new seed producing farmer friend. He asked me if I wanted to go to church, and I simply responded, yes, of course. We went that morning to greet the pastor and share breakfast before the service. The pastor had a very humble house, and his three daughters were working on getting ready for church. Breakfast was fresh coffee and bread. I would soon learn that it is common to spend nearly four hours straight in worship with no bathroom break, even while sweat rolls down my back in the 100 degree weather. Services are delivered live in at least two languages, usually French and the local native language. Everybody takes great care to get dressed up in the best clothes they have and be as clean as possible, and the diversity of fashion was amazing. While improving their computer infrastructure, I came to intimately know the Christian radio known as Radio Evangile Development, or RED for short. The radio had been incubated and supported by the missionary organization I am partnered with, Francophone Ministries for Christ, twenty years ago. Part of this trip was to participate in the celebration of the radio ministry’s anniversary. After twenty years, the radio now broadcasts from nine towers covering much of the country. Over this time, millions have come to know Jesus or grow stronger in their relationship with Him because of the radio. The radio reaches out in more than fifty different languages to people whom the Word of God would otherwise not be present. This includes areas where there is no church as well as the vast numbers of people who are unable to read or write and therefore cannot receive the written Word. It also reaches areas where people are unable to afford a TV, but they can get a radio. And where

there is no electricity since a radio can be solar powered. God used this radio mightily for twenty long years to bring vast numbers of people closer to Him. The impressive 5-day-long anniversary celebration activities and concert were attended by many thousands of people including dignitaries like the president of the country. Clearly, I could see that Burkina Faso was a place where the love of Jesus readily shined through the entire Christian community by breaking straight through massive barriers, occupying the hearts of the people and moving strong and fast through the spoken Word. Embracing their multi-lingual identity, the RED radio ministry even runs a web site in English. If you’d like to learn more about them, visit: http://red-burkina.org/ and click on “English” To be continued next week with “Building churches through pastoral schools of agriculture” Tony Farrell started his current business venture, Farrell Marketing Technology LLC, in April of 2011. Over his lengthy career as an information technology entrepreneur, he has worked on tens of thousands of computers and helped dozens of business to have smooth running, efficient computer infrastructure and great looking web sites that generate more business through search engine optimization. In February 2012, Tony began intensive organic farming on a small scale in his living room, including vermicomposting and aquaponics systems, and he completed Growing Power’s Commercial Urban Agriculture program in May 2012. Tony is currently enrolled in the Milwaukee-based Victory Garden Initiative’s Food Leader Certificate Program and Permaculture Design Certificate Program and is building a local for-profit microgreen production business called Farmer Tony’s Mission Greens. Tony recently returned from a three week agricultural mission trip to Burkina Faso, marking his first foray into international work. This series tells the story of that journey. Tony welcomes comments and feedback, and he may be contacted through his personal email address tony@farrellfamily.org

First African American Team in Midwest Senior Softball USA Tournament takes First Place By Don Edward Pannell Special to the Milwaukee Times

While it was a significant fact an African American team took First Place in the Midwest Senior Softball Tournament in August, it was even more significant that Miss Cynthia Cone was the first female manager and first African American manager to take home the trophy. Miss Cone’s teammates were in their third year together as they competed in the tournaments for aged fifty and over. Cone stated they played five games; three games were played the first day. “On the second day we played round robin best of three. When we went into the championship round we played a team around our same age scoring 20-8 and 21- 6. Cone states they are happy to have their rings and tournament team patches. “To top it all off, some players were chosen as tournament player and will receive an additional ring for All Tournament Players. Miss Cone initially started out as an avid fan; traveling and watching the Milwaukee teams play in various tournaments. As she viewed the teams, although competitive, she determined something was missing. The players she followed were usually quite older than opposing players. This led her to do some brainstorming with her cousin James Huff where the idea developed to put together a senior team. Huff was playing at Clinton Rose Center as player coach on a team. By pooling players

Ms. Cynthia Cone

The team with coach Ronald Radcliff (back row, 3rd from left) Huff was familiar with, Cone and Huff were able to form a competitive senior softball team. Cone was interested in working at Marshall High School gym with the players during the off season to keep in shape. Cone as manager felt this was a natural progression since most of the players were pretty good athletes already. By doing this, the team was able to participate one night a week in the softball league through the Milwaukee Public School System on Thursday nights. “The first year team fees took care of all our cost for uniforms and league fees.” Cone said. “The second year Catfish Lounge came on as sponsor to pay league fees, although we still paid our

tournament fees.” With a rooster of twenty players in the senior program, Miss Cone’s theory was to have enough players to rotate. In the league play they were obligated to play twelve to fifteen games. With a first year placing of fifth place, the team improved to third place their second year and this year, their third, first place this year. After the league games, although not obligated, they participated in the Midwest Senior Softball USA. “The unique thing about

this,” Cone says, “is we are the oldest team in the Milwaukee league, but we are the youngest team in the Senior Softball USA tournament. Playing the young players helps keep us in shape to compete in the USA tournament which is aged fifty to eighty years old!” Taking on another league playing for Fitzgibbons Pub on Tuesday and MPS on Thursday further enhances their preparedness for the senior tournament. When asked about her philosophy, Cone referred to the team

motto. “As a member of the Milwaukee Magic Softball Team I will always act as a role model by showing respect for my teammates, tournament and league officials, opposing teams and our fans. As long as I am a member of the Milwaukee Magic Softball Team I will show good sportsmanship and I will always play with honor.” While keeping the team motivated is a priority as team manager, Cone does collaborate with acting coach Ronald Radcliff and assistant coach Michael Causey. “While we don’t have significant disciplinary problems, if I see a member appearing to have trouble, I just pull them aside to see what the problem is. That’s where the collaboration (Continued on pg. 15)

Master electrician and founder of One Hope Made Strong Program provides free construction training to Milwaukee residents

Ezzard C. White By Don Edward PannellSpecial to The Milwaukee Times Father Michael H. Bertram, O.F.M Capuchin pastor of St. Francis Catholic Church provides space for Ezzard C. White, owner of EWS Electric LLC, to present free classes to students interested in the construction industry. Mr. White, also founder of One Hope Made Strong (OHMS) presents a series of courses designed to provide a fundamental working knowledge of the various aspects of electrical theory, blueprint reading, drafting, building structures, carpentry and plumbing are presented one night per

week. The program also covers communications, technology, business ethics and more. Students will also benefit from guest speakers and will get the opportunity to visits a variety of job sites to see how their training is applied in the workforce. Father Mike, as he likes to be called, was approached by parish member Ruby Dawson who relayed the mission of (OHMS). “Their mission is not only to give training in construction related skills but to follow up to get sure they get jobs in their field.” Father Mike went on to say, “There are big projects going up such the hotels and Northwestern

Earnest Evans Mutual. So the jobs will be here in Milwaukee for them. We had the space to offer that didn’t conflict with our schedule and it fit the number of people they were hoping for. Now, every Wednesday morning they are here conducting the instructional portion. We are very proud to have them here by just being able to afford more people in Milwaukee to have employment.” While the program has been in session for about a month,” Father Mike states, “with so much going on in here, there are Wednesdays I don’t even know they are in the building. They take such good care of themselves. We are just

Rodney Franklin so eager and happy to host them. We are not looking to make money off their being here—just consider it a sponsorship by the parish. They stop in just to say ‘Hi Father Mike’ to show their appreciation. Anything that can encourage more people to work, we are happy to open our doors to them. The young men and women attending the session were happy and eager to share how they became involved with the project. Anthony Young states he began the program six weeks ago training as an electrician. “The program is great and it gives you hope to know it is never too late. Keep hope alive!” Anthony states although he has a job now doing maintenance in an apartment complex, this opportunity was so great

Anthony Young he couldn’t pass it up. “… And it’s free!” Anthony was very excited about that aspect of the extended year long program. “It was nine months but another module was added making it now a year long.” David Jones says he plans to stick with the yearlong program also. “I really enjoy learning new things and this is something I enjoy. This is something I can apply to my life. I plan on putting the training to use working for someone and eventually working for myself. I discovered the program through a friend of mine and I figured it was time to do it! You have to attend all the sessions and you can’t be late for any. That works for me!” (Continued on pg. 14)

UWM-Trained Teachers Take Top Honors Marko Radmanovic, assistant principal at Escuela Vieau, looks astounded when asked if he’s ever considered leaving teaching or Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS). “The idea has never crossed my mind. It’s such an exciting environment. Every day is interesting, with new successes and challenges. I love the diversity of MPS, the students, the parents and the wonderful colleagues who inspire me and who are so dedicated.” Katerina Jones, a second grade teacher at Samuel Clemens School in Milwaukee, says she simply ignores those who criticize teachers or public schools. “I know I’m doing good work here, and I know all my colleagues come here every day and do good work so I don’t let it bother me.” Radmanovic and Jones, both University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Education (SOE) alumni, were among teachers receiving Advanced Career awards at the Oct. 17 Celebration of

Teachers and Teaching event, sponsored by the Education Deans of Greater Milwaukee (EDGM). Education Deans of Greater Milwaukee is a collaboration involving the deans of nine area higher education institutions, including UWM. Proceeds of the October awards event benefit a fund to promote professional development for teachers and to advance the reputation of teaching. “This event gives us the opportunity to spotlight the work that teachers do,” says Barbara Daley, interim SOE dean. “It is a way of honoring all teachers for the energy and enthusiasm and skills they bring to their work.” An indirect path to the profession Radmanovic got into teaching in a roundabout way. He’d earned his undergraduate degrees in criminology and history from Marquette University and was working in the safety department in Milwaukee Public Schools when he became interested

Katerina Jones in the challenges special education students face. He began volunteering on his lunch hours to work with students with behavioral and emotional issues. He then entered a special education post-baccalaureate partnership program between MPS and UWM, which allowed him to work as a special education teacher while earning his certification in the field. Later, he earned his regular education and history certi-

fications. He has taught in MPS since 1990. “I liked to focus on a student’s strengths, as a way to help them reach their potential.” The parent of a student who made “huge gains” in math skills wrote in a nomination letter: “Children have an innate sense of when someone truly believes in them, and (our child) knew that Mr. R. did.” Partnerships, programs key to developing educators Jones, a second-grade teacher at Samuel Clemens Elementary School in MPS, has 10 years teaching experience. She was part of the 2002-03 cohort of UWM’s former Metropolitan Multicultural Teacher Education Pre-service Program, which prepared paraprofessionals to become certified teachers. “Ms. Jones demonstrates an uncommon commitment to providing quality instruction based on each student’s developmental level and learning style,” Clemens principal Jacqueline Richardson wrote in her nomination letter.

Both teachers credit their experiences at UWM with helping them become excellent teachers. Both Radmanovic and Jones talk about the importance of helping students begin to see the relationships among the materials they’re encountering. Students need to not only see those relationships, but the relevance to their own lives, these teachers agree. Every success builds confidence for the next steps in learning. That, says Jones, is a key reason she is a teacher. “I really love those ‘ah-ha’ moments, and I’m getting to see quite a few of them.” Other honorees at this year’s event included educators from Milwaukee College Prep, Walker Elementary School, Carmen High School of Science & Technology, Rufus King International-Middle Years Campus, Young Leaders Academy, St. Adalbert School, and Seeds of Health-Windlake Elementary.

Talking Health with Dr. Carter

By Dr. Lester Carter Owner, Carter Drug Store

Coenzyme Q10: Breakthrough with CoQ (part 4) Supplemental CoQ10 not only improves the quality of life, it also saves lives

Coenzyme Q10 has been called the miracle nutrient of the 21st century. It has been shown to energize the body, strengthen the heart, revitalize the immune system, control periodontal disease, normalize blood pressure, overcome infertility, reverse the effects of aging, and more. Enhanced immunity Our bodies retain extra supplies of CoQ10 where they are needed most: the heart, the liver, and the immune system. CoQ10 is a way to give that system a boost. According to the National Cancer Institute, animal studies have shown that coenzyme Q10 helps the immune system work better and increases the body's ability to resist certain infections and types of cancer. In a study comparing antibody production in young and aging mice, the young mice produced 300 units of antibodies and the old mice

only about 130 . When treated with CoQ10, aging mice increased their production to 240 units, nearly double. Similar results have been found in limited human studies. Chronically ill patients took 60 mg per day for 1-2 months. The CoQ10 supplementation was associated with a significant increase in antibodies. Researchers concluded that the coenzyme may prevent the immune suppression which commonly occurs with chronic illness. Further experiments have demonstrated the ability of CoQ10 to reduce the number and size of chemically induced tumors in mice. Since human tumors manifest in the same way as mouse tumors, scientists anticipate that the human response to CoQ10 will be equally beneficial. CoQ10 has already been used as an adjunct to Adriamycin, a chemotherapy agent, to reduce its side ef-

fects which include weakening of the heart muscle. Sources and subalimentation Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra contends that functioning on low levels of CoQ10 is like running a high octane engine on low octane fuel. Meats and fish, especially mackerel and sardines, are very high in CoQ10. Cereals, particularly brans; nuts, especially peanuts; dark green vegetables like spinach and broccoli; soybeans; and canola, soy and sesame oils are all rich food sources. CoQ 10 supplementation

only works if there is a deficiency of coenzyme Q10. Once we pass 40 most of us are deficient. From that point, we can get our CoQ10 needs met only preformed in food or with CoQ10 supplements. In addition, aging, poor eating habits, infection, stress, and strenuous exercise affect our ability to provide adequate amounts. People taking statio type cholesterol lowering drugs (e.g., Lovastatin) compromise CoQ10 production in the body. Ironically, the very drugs which lower cholesterol endanger the heart. Although there are no clinical studies providing information on the use of CoQ10 for prevention, if you are over 30, add CoQ10 to your supplement program. For healthy people, the usual dose is 30-60 mg once a day. Because CoQ10 is fat-soluble, absorption is significantly improved when it is taken with a fat-containing food. In

addition, some people experience a major increase in energy when they take CoQ10 supplements. This lead to trouble sleeping. In this case, take the supplements during the day with food. The ability of individual bodies to uptake Q10 varies greatly. Some patients attain good blood levels on 100 mg per day while others require 200-300 mg to attain the same levels. Remember, coenzyme Q10 works like a vitamin not like a wonder drug. One to three months or longer may be necessary to saturate deficient tissues. Please note: Studies have shown that health status declines when CoQ10 supplements are discontinued. Continued next week: Miscellany

Black patients less likely to ask for lower-cost meds African American patients may feel less comfortable than white patients asking doctors if they can take cheaper drugs, a recent survey from an emergency department shows. White patients in the study were also more likely to be aware of low-cost prescription drug programs, according to lead author Dr. Preeti Dalawari, of Saint Louis University School of Medicine, and her colleagues. They said the study supports recommendations that doctors talk with patients about how much drugs cost

and ways to overcome high price tags. Such discussions may help people stick more closely to their prescribed medications. “There are viable low cost pharmacy options that patients, especially those who have difficulty obtaining medication, should be aware of,” Dalawari told Reuters Health in an email. “If we, as Emergency Medicine physicians, are doing the prescribing, we need to make sure we advocate for the patient and let them know of these options.” “This is not really a racial is-

sue,” Dr. Robert Solomon, a spokesperson for the American College of Emergency Physicians, said. Instead, it’s “something we ought to be applying across the board.” Solomon was not involved with the current study. As an emergency department (ED) doctor at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he said he teaches doctors-in-training to pay attention to whether what they are recommending is possible for a patient. “What we’re dealing with is physicians not doing what told Reuters Health. they should be doing,” he Dalawari and her team surveyed 552 mostly African American and white adults who came to an urban ED in the Midwest. Participants answered questions about the affordability of their medications, perceptions about doctors’ habits of prescribing lowercost medicines and whether they felt comfortable asking doctors for cheaper alternatives to the medicines they were originally prescribed.

pared to almost 83 percent of whites, the researchers report in The Journal of Emergency Medicine. Most of the survey respondents - 86 percent - said doctors do a good job of prescribing lower-cost prescription medications, however. “I found it surprising that 86 percent of the participants actually thought that physicians were doing a good job prescribing low cost medications, given the possible extra steps involved in the ED setting to find this information,” Dalawari said. The participants reported taking an average of four medications every day, and 44 percent said they were unable to afford at least one of their drugs. One in four respondents said they had trouble paying for their medications at least half of the time. (Continued on pg. 12)

Low cost drugs (Continued from pg. 11) African Americans were less likely to be aware of pharmacies that offer lower prices for medications. Some large retail pharmacies charge $5 for a 30-day supply of certain drugs, for example. White participants were almost three times more likely than African Americans to be able to name such discount pharmacy options. The researchers did not look at the reasons for the discrepancies among African Americans and whites. But they are likely due to many different factors, Dalawari said. The lack of pharmacies close to the homes of some participants may be one factor, she said. Mistrust of the healthcare system among some African Americans may also make them less likely to bring up their needs. Solomon said these issues can be addressed if doctors pay attention to each patient’s background and knowledge coming in. “Rather than making assumptions specific to individuals, work from assuming that they may not have resources” readily available, he said.

One Hope Made Strong (Continued from pg. 9) It also works for Rodney Franklin who says he is in the mindset to take all of the training. “My mom told me about it and I will do what it takes to stay off the streets. I plan on going to school to be an architect but I wanted to take this to increase my knowledge base first.” Rodney just graduated from high school and says instead of a traditional college he listened to his mom. “Mom said you can’t pass up this free training—take advantage of the knowledge.” Rodney says he is good in math so he is looking forward to this training. The training is also for women interested in entering the construction industry. Keisha Benjamin was referred to the program by a pastor friend. While she attends Kaplan University now, she plans on using this program to own her own home. “The program is going good and the hands on with different wires and tools should be coming soon.” Earnest Evans has been with the program from the beginning. He states he is unemployed at this time, but helps his brother who owns a construction company every now and then. I don’t know anything about electricity now, but I figure common

sense will come through. Earnest states, “Besides this I plan on attending MATC for business management. Earnest says he commends the people running the program for taking their time to offer the training. “I appreciate them coming back to give their experience to the community and helping people get jobs making the future for their daily lives better.” That future is something Teresa Thomas-Boyd speaks of from her position as volunteer with OHMS. She relates how the director has a passion for the community since 2008. “Mr. White goes into his own pockets in order to share his gifts and passion. He sees it as a way to help this city grow, especially within the city of Milwaukee. His passion has caught the interest of city pastors who opted to meet with Mr. White to see where they can assist. What we have seen is corporations oftentimes will seek waivers so as not hire Blacks or low-income persons on construction jobs. So what Mr. White is

doing with his training is to show how not only that you should hire them but more so, have a desire to hire them. What you will have are qualified people on your site now and on future projects. The students will receive certification to provide proof they have completed a series of modules in the program. Observing Mr. White in the training session offers an opportunity to witness his passion and commitment to providing a much needed service to individuals and the community. He gets right in with the students to make sure they take advantage of the hands on opportunities provided in the classroom setting. They will need to be ready because as student Keisha Benjamin said, “… the hands on with all the wires and tools are coming soon!” Volunteer Pastor Teresa Thomas-Boyd sums it all up by stating, “Mr. White is a master electrician and a compassionate man of God who uses his gifts to make the community better and stronger!”

(Continued from pg. 8) comes in so as not to rely on just my interpretation of an issue. However, if a player is willing to rotate and do their best, win or lose I have no problem with them.” When asked what the future plans for the team were, Cone stated, “As we continue into next year, we may acquire new players in the league which will make them eligible to play in the senior tournament once they reach fifty years old. I do see us going back to Lansing MI, to participate in the ring tournament. When we begin our year we plan on participating in the tournament of

champions, although you do pay a little more money for fees. Although we were shorthanded on players due to some unable to show, we still look forward to traveling there. We went to the tournament with just twelve players when we could have taken twenty. Of those twelve, ten traveled with the team and two drove down on their own. “I’m just glad it was worth mentioning we made history as the first African American team to win the tournament—and of course that Miss Cone was the first African American female!”

Celebrating National Hospice Month

Comfort When You Need it Most

AseraCare® provides hospice services to those facing life-limiting illness as a way to bring comfort and compassion to people when they need it most. Hospice can allow families to enjoy their remaining time together and focus on the important things in life. In the below excerpt from The Journey Home: Stories of Compassion and Inspiration from AseraCare Hospice, Sharon explains how choosing hospice was a reflection of her lifestyle and personality.

Sharon’s Choice Sharon was a country girl. Memories of her childhood and young adulthood in the close-knit community where she grew up sustained her as she grew older, raised two children, worked as a charge nurse on a maternity ward, and took care of her husband, a well-respected community leader and school principal. When the doctor told Sharon that he had done all he could and that he thought she had only several months remaining, she thought about how she wanted to spend those months. Sitting in her beloved country home, an apartment at her daughter’s house, she looked around and knew she didn’t want to be in a cold hospital room. She wanted to be close to her two daughters and grandson. Sharon’s decision to enter hospice was a choice that reflected her lifestyle and her personality. Hospice arranged for her to have the medical support necessary to meet her needs. All of her supplies are delivered, so neither Sharon nor her family have to worry about finding what she needs. The nurses bring her medications and aides help her with personal hygiene, relieving her daughters of that responsibility. Remaining in her home allows Sharon to stay close to her friends, who visit often. She is able to continue to be a part of her church community. Sharon has been in hospice for almost two years. “I would not be here if I didn’t have hospice taking care of me,” she says. It might be the emotional support from hospice that is most precious to Sharon. The hospice social worker, Sara, comes often to chat with her, and Sharon particularly enjoys reminiscing about her youth and the many changes she has seen in the world and in her own life over the years. “We’ve worked a lot with her on life review,” says Sara. “She loves sharing her memories and knowing that someone would remember after she was gone. But we also talk about the choices she’s made throughout her life. She loves to tell me about her husband, who passed away many years ago. Sharing her stories makes her happy.” One of Sharon’s fondest childhood memories is the visit from a local doctor who came to her home whenever she or one of her siblings was ill. She recalls the comfort of seeing the doctor arrive and knowing that care was on the way. “You know,” she confides, “hospice is really the best thing since the country doctor.” Sharon is so thankful for the spiritual and emotional support hospice has brought to her and for the opportunity to live out her days wrapped in a cocoon of country comfort and family love that would have been impossible without hospice.
