The disappearing American promise: Honest work, honest wage

By: Raina J. Johnson Special to The Milwaukee Times

Earlier this year, in his State of the Union address, President Obama called to raise the minimum wage: “Tonight, let’s declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hour. We should be able to get that done. This single step would raise the income of millions of working families. It could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank; rent or eviction; scraping by or finally getting ahead.” Elected officials and a nation full of hard-working Americans, primarily in the fast food, retail and home and health care industries have responded to the call. A Democratic senator from Iowa, Tom Harkin,

chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and Representative George Miller (D-CA) introduced the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, which would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by the year of 2015. Workers in the fast food and retail industries from all across the country are urging elected officials to raise the federal minimum wage which stands at $7.25 an hour. The last increase to the federal minimum wage occurred in 2009 when it went up from $6.55 to $7.25; before that, the minimum wage was stuck at $5.15 an hour for ten years. As President Obama said in his speech, “We know our economy is stronger when we reward an honest day’s work with honest wages. (Continued on pg. 2)

Thanksgiving Day Outreach Ministry Community Dinner and Fashion Share For more than a decade, the congregation at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 2207 N. Second St., has hosted their annual Thanksgiving Day Outreach Ministry Community Dinner and Fashion Share on Thanksgiving Day to pray, fellowship, eat and share some of their blessings with less fortunate individuals. Last Thursday was no exception, and everyone who participated was greeted in the stairwell to the fellowship hall with the wonderful aroma of oven roasted turkey, cornbread dressing, macaroni, green salad and a wide assortment of desserts and beverages where everything was in abundance. After dinner, door prizes were presented to the lucky individuals recognized by raffle tickets. School supplies were given to students and individuals in need of gently used clothing. They were allowed to select items from several tables stacked with a tremendous assortment of men’s pants, ladies dresses, shirts, and shoes donated by members of Mt. Zion. Pictured here are Thanksgiving Day Program Chairperson Lynda Guyton and Bertha Lipsey, Chairperson of the Mission Society. Rev. Dr. Louis Sibley, III, is pastor.

Disappearing American promise (Continued from pg. 1) Today, a full-time worker making the minimum wage earns $14,500 a year. Even with the tax relief we put in place, a family with two kids that earns the minimum wage still lives below the poverty line. That’s wrong, and that’s why since the last time this Congress raised the minimum wage, 19 states have chosen to bump theirs

Brandon Henning even higher." In Wisconsin, the minimum wage is still $7.25, but workers in Milwaukee from more than 2 dozen companies have joined together to form the Milwaukee Workers Organizing Committee . In addition to the fight for a higher wage, the group has also been fighting to form a union without retaliation, under a campaign called Raise Up MKE. In regards to this, there was a town hall meeting held on Thursday, November 21, 2013 at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center, located at 1531 W. Vliet Street.

The subject of the meeting was "The High Public Cost of Low Wages," sponsored by Wisconsin Jobs Now. At the town hall meeting, many elected officials were on hand to speak, including State Representatives Mandela Barnes, Evan Goyke, Sandy, Pasch, Daniel Riemer, Christine Sinicki, Leon Young, JoCasta Zamarripa; plus State Senators Chris Larson and Tim Carpenter. The event was moderated by Executive Director of Wisconsin Jobs Now Jennifer Epps-Addison and Representative Mandela Barnes. Also included on the panel were three individuals that are directly affected by the disappearing American promise. An economist and associate director of the Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr. Laura Dresser was on the panel. “At the bottom of the labor market, we’ve left workers there struggling to make ends meet and realize this supposed promise of the American economy, that if you work, you will be able to take care of your family. Our economy at the bottom isn’t working that way. COWS recently (June 2013) did a report called, ‘Raise the Floor Milwaukee’ [ raise-the-floor-milwaukee] that focused on three sectors where more than half of the workers in those sectors earned poverty level wages: fast-food, home health and long term care, and retail. Half of the workforce doesn’t even make enough to get to the poverty line for a family of four. There’s the fact that there is work to

do at that level, that’s about raising the floor. Raising the floor in every way possible, how do you raise the floor? You increase the minimum wage, you run living wage campaigns, you help people form unions, you help workers advocate for themselves and for each other.” Workers in Milwaukee and others involved in the Milwaukee Workers Organizing Committee have been advocating for and with each other. Mary Coleman is a crew member at Popeye’s. Known as Miss Mary, she earns $7.25 an hour. “I am forced to live with my daughter and her 2 kids because I can’t afford my own place. They tell me, the only thing I am eligible for is FoodShare. I am here today to say, I will gladly trade in that QUEST card for $15 an hour.” In Wisconsin, FoodShare helps low-income individuals and families buy nutritious food. Eligibility for FoodShare is determined by income level and family size; and each month benefits are disbursed on a debit card called a QUEST card using an electronic benefits trans-

Mary Coleman fer (EBT) system. Brandon Henning has been working at Wendy’s for

6 years and he earns $7.70 an hour. “We work at these companies who make billions of dollars; at least they should pay us for the hard work that we do,” he said. Brandon also agreed with Miss Mary about trading in the QUEST card for higher

Dr. Laura Dresser wages. A college student, Devonte Yeats, who also works at McDonalds and makes the minimum wage, spoke to the crowd at the town hall of about 70 people. “It’s ridiculous how they say, well if you don’t want to be on food stamps or public assistance, why don’t you just go look for a job. To me, no matter what job I go to, it’s probably, most likely going to be a low-wage job. I’m a college student and I work 40 hours a week and I work hard every day, there’s no way in the world that I can make a burger for somebody but can’t even go home and make a cheese sandwich for myself. No one should have to feel like they should depend on another person when they go to work and work hard, that’s just not right.” Wisconsin Jobs Now Executive Director Jennifer

Epps-Addison spoke about the high cost of these low wages that workers earn. “We are talking about priorities. It’s not about if we’re going to spend the money - we’re going to spend the money, it’s about whose money we’re spending and who we are giving it away to. The workers you heard from aren’t takers, they work hard every day; the takers are the CEOs of the companies who expect tax-payers to continue to subsidize corporations to the tune of $166 million in our state and billions of dollars in the country.” With consumerism at a high, corporations rolling out advertisements and door-busting sales earlier than ever, and low-wage workers caught in the middle, many will be watching to see how this fight to raise the minimum wage ends. By the federal government not increasing the minimum wage or indexing it (which means that it is adjusted automatically each year to keep pace with the cost of living), the value of the wage erodes, thus taking away the promise to all Americans and what this county was founded on; nameless honest work that earns an honest wage.

Being Frank December 25th is right around the corner. Because of the lateness of Thanksgiving, the number of shopping days are scarce. There are wish lists to be filled and dreams to answer. The magical time of year is here so get out your debit card and head to the mall. The holiday season is a time of giving and spending so let's get shopping. Many Americans have children and don’t have an idea of what to buy them. To ensure many children have a great Christmas the following items are on the short list for children. We’ll start with the young girls. The top seller for decades and still ranked number one is: Barbie. Barbie is still the top requested toy by girls according to the

National Retail Foundation. The great thing about Barbie is she comes in all colors. Please don’t be scared to buy a boy a Barbie doll because it’s 2013 not 1913. Let’s shift over to the young boys. The top gift for young boys is: Legos. According to the Los Angeles Times the legendary Lego blocks are what every young boy wants. This is probably because of the variety of scenarios and set-ups the blocks can be used to create. Parents should feel good if their child wants Lego blocks because it takes time and imagination to use this gift properly. Similar to the Barbie doll, don’t be afraid to buy Legos for a female child. Teenagers are either the hardest to shop for or the

easiest. A parent has to know their child to shop for a teen. Lego blocks and Barbie dolls won’t cut it with a junior in high school. It is usually around this age where most parents get tired of shopping with their child and just hand them money. But it is Christmas so here are a few ideas. Technology rules the average teen's mind. A cell phone or tablet upgrade is

By Frank James IV always welcomed by a teen. The problem is many teens already have iPhones and iPads. Clothes can be a parent’s fail-safe gift. Teens never tire of wearing hooded sweatshirts and jeans. This Christmas an upscale designer hooded sweatshirt and jeans will make many teens happy. The gift ideas for adults are much simpler. This is the time of year diamonds become a women’s best friend. Any man shopping for a special woman cannot go wrong by investing in something that has a few carats in it. The smile and hug received from handing a woman a diamond ring, bracelet or necklace is an experience. It must be noted that diamonds can cure relationship woes, but only for a limited time. If your relationship is on the rocks, then hold off on the diamonds. Nine West boots or shoes are a cheaper remedy and the loss is less severe to the pocket. What to get a man for Christmas? Many women will get a man clothes or tools

for a gift, but is that what a man wants? Sure, the average man will take the clothes and put the tools to use. But what would a man in America really cherish? It could be as simple as having an enlightening evening with an attractive woman who makes him feel like he’s wanted and special. A woman who listens, encourages and doesn’t nag, this gift is also good for females from men. It’s ironic the one gift many long for can be given freely by loved ones or purchased from strangers for various prices. Happy Holidays!

CHILD WATCH   By: Marian Wright Edelman

Preventable hunger in our land of plenty While many American families gather around the Thanksgiving table this week, some of us combining this year’s traditional dinners with Hanukkah feasts, a too quiet group will be left out of the national celebration. The nearly 49 million Americans—including nearly 16 million children—living in food insecure households will be struggling to afford the food they need. These families won’t be choosing between apple or pumpkin pie this holiday season but will face choices about paying for groceries or rent, heat, electricity, medicine or clothing for their children as they do each month—choices no family should have to make in our nation with the largest Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the world. Congress will be choosing how many of these desperate families and children in need to cut from life-giving and life-sustaining federal nutrition programs. In the middle of this season of gratitude for plenty, Congress has put the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, often called food stamps) on the chopping block while leaving largely intact subsidies for rich farmers and even some non-farmers. With the decision deadline just weeks away Congress is working to bridge the gap between two dramatically different Farm Bill proposals which both include unjust funding cuts for SNAP. The Senate Bill cuts $4 billion from SNAP over 10 years while the House bill slashes more than $40 billion—denying food to as many as six million people, including children, seniors, and veterans. The House proposal would also drop 210,000 children from school meals and cost our economy 55,000 jobs in the first year alone. Any agreed upon Farm Bill cuts to the already meager SNAP food benefits will come on top of the $11 billion cut over the next three years that already began on November 1st and affected every single SNAP recipient. This recent cut was equivalent to a week’s worth of

meals for a nine-year-old. SNAP benefits now average a mere $1.40 per person per meal. Imagine preparing your family Thanksgiving meal on that budget. SNAP lifted 2.2 million children out of poverty in 2012 and provided benefits to over 46 million Americans on average every month, including more than 22 million, or more than one in four, children. SNAP was a life saver for millions of families in need during the recent recession and still sluggish recovery. Nearly three-quarters of SNAP households are families with children. Any additional cuts will take desperately needed food away from many vulnerable children and adults. At a time when child poverty remains at a record high, and when three-quarters of our nation’s teachers report students who routinely show up to school hungry and half report hunger to be a serious problem in their classrooms, what kind of political leaders could for one minute consider cutting children’s food assistance while protecting subsidies for rich farmers? Hunger and malnutrition have devastating consequences for children and have been linked to low birth weight and birth defects, obesity, mental and physical health problems, and poorer educational outcomes. SNAP cushions these threats and yields a strong return on investment. Children who benefit from SNAP are less likely to be in poor health, experience fewer hospitalizations, and are less likely to have developmental and growth delays than those with similar incomes denied the program. A recent study found that needy children who received food assistance before age five were in better health as adults. Specifically, the girls studied were more likely to complete more schooling, earn more money, and not rely on safety net programs as adults. Adults who care and have

Rebuilding our Community By Dr. Andrew Calhoun, Ed.D. Special for the Milwaukee Times

The things we do Many people often wonder how those who are in the positions of leadership in public service and private business take the news when reports come to light that things are not getting better and that some outcomes are having a negative effect upon others and the community at large. It is assumed that people in leadership will do the right thing, act ethically, make positive changes to improve the quality of life of those they serve. It is assumed that these leaders and managers have what it takes, the skills and talent to keep things headed in the right direction. It is also assumed that when it comes to ensuring that the people they represent or lead will always have their voices heard regardless of the situation. But that is expected. What really happens? Can a person in leadership do something that is beyond their belief system, heart, faith or conscience? Is there a separation between what is right and wrong, church and state; or does a person give in to what is in their best common and economic sense would strengthen and not cut this critical lifeline for children. During this Thanksgiving week, those of us blessed with enough or too much food can show our gratitude for living in a wealthy country where we can take action and urge our political leaders to put hungry children before rich farmers. And as millions of us sit down to a Thanksgiving dinner let us offer a simple Thanksgiving grace: God, we thank You for this food for the hands that planted it for the hands that tended it for the hands that harvested it for the hands that prepared it for the hands that provided it and for the hands that served it. And we pray for those without enough food in Your world and in our land of plenty.

interest? What is in it for me, myself and I… or better yet, how can I get the most out of this situation that benefits my future ambitions. Oddly and strangely enough these and more are the questions that continue to beset our society even in the 21st century. However, there is not a day that goes by or even a moment that we find people struggling to keep their heads above water, homeless, hungry and alone. There are so many people in our society that are hurting, hearts broken and crushed by the weight of policies and regulations that benefit only a few and not the many. It is not that all of them have lost their way, made bad choices,

lost their lot in life, but also there continues to be many people who can help… who don’t. The story of the Good Samaritan in the Bible provides the best insights to helping those in need, especially when the question is asked… Who is my neighbor? We must remember that there are no limitations on who can make a difference in another person’s life. And with that in mind during this holiday season, let us answer the question not only through our words, but through our actions.

Christian Times


The Counseling Corner By Rev. Judith T. Lester, B.Min. M.Th

Year in review: a variety of topics covered This month we will take a look back at some of the articles that were featured in this column in 2013 and then momentarily peek ahead to what awaits us in 2014. Annually, the month of June is recognized as National Health Month. Therefore, this column ran articles addressing health issues the entire month of June 2013. Health is one of the issues often neglected in the church. If your church has an active health ministry, you are to be commended. In addressing health issues members will not only be healthier but they will be better able to serve God and others with the gifts God has given them. Charles Reynolds Brown, past dean of Yale Divinity School in his book “Faith and Health” (T.Y. Crowell & Co., 1910) wrote: “The Church of Jesus Christ ought to ‘teach health,’ not as its chief business, but as a leaf on the tree of its main purpose, which… is to produce the good fruit of Christian character and service.” The words of Dean Brown were written in 1910 and as any timeless truth, they remain applicable even today. I encourage you to take charge

of your future by taking care of your health today! From the responses I received from the articles titled: The Pain of Unrequited Love (August 2013), you considered the series bittersweet. Most of you indicated you were enlightened by the article’s information; but at the same time, you were forced to come face-to-face with a relationship that was unmistakably and undeniably unrequited love. Reading the series triggered a flood of emotions for you that caused feelings of sadness, but a sense of relief at the realization that not all relationships are destined for the altar. While we are on the subject of relationships, I was glad to hear that many of you (male and female) are not giving up on your marriage but are working hard to maintain the love that initially drew the two of you together. On that note you have asked that I re-run the articles regarding marital forgiveness from a few years ago. In 2014, I plan to accommodate your request. Marriage is honorable. It is an institution ordained by God. While couples must fight against many external temptations to keep a marriage from falling apart, it is

not impossible. The key is mutual trust, honesty, transparency, communication and commitment. Even in a year where we saw times of achievement and triumph which often seemed few and far between, we were delighted to read about combat missions oversees in some countries were winding down which meant for most American troops, the steady drumbeat of repeated deployments to the war zone was slowly coming to an end. (Holt, NBC Nightly News, August 2013). In honor of our veterans and military personnel, we personally thanked our veterans and troops for their valor, courage, sacrifice and unyielding devotion in serving our country. In articles titled: "Honoring Our Veterans and Military Personnel" (November 2013), we noted the greatest thing we can do this holiday season is to re-

member these brave soldiers who have been willing to go, to serve and to give. Remember, “it is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35). If you are interested in assisting in collecting items for our military personnel who serve our country, contact supportourtroops@tds. net or any of the local organizations dedicated to this cause. While we did not address dementia in 2013, I want you to know I have received your requests and I plan to run articles once more regarding Alzheimer’s, the warning signs, etc., in 2014 during National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Finally, many ministries are scrambling to find ways to reach and retain Millennials (those young people between the ages of 18-29). Church leaders are getting the message; Millennials will leave their ministry if they are not ministered to in ways they can relate. Simply put, church leaders are recognizing they cannot continue operating with an 8-track tape mentality in this digital society. Either you update – or they will vacate! In 2014, I will dedicate a month to outlining ways to keep Millenni-

als from running out of your church’s back door. 2013 has been a year many of you have commented to me you will never forget. You shared with me your highs and your lows, your struggles and your spiritual victories. As we come to the end of another year and wait patiently for the New Year, it is my prayer that: The Lord bless you, and keep you; The Lord make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.’ - Numbers 6:24-26 As always, this column will take a brief interval for the remainder of December and return January 2014. May you enjoy a happy and blessed holiday season! The writer does not assume responsibility in any way for readers’ efforts to apply or utilize information or recommendations made in these articles, as they may not be necessarily appropriate for every situation to which they may refer. Rather, the objective is strictly informative and educational. If you would like to contact Rev. Lester, write to her c/o P.O. Box 121, Brookfield, WI. 53008.

Bulletin Board Leader at MPS’ Pulaski High wins national ‘Principal of the Year’ honors from NABSE Dr. Darrell Williams, principal of Milwaukee Public Schools’ Casimir Pulaski High School, has been named national “Principal of the Year” by the National Alliance of Black School Educators. Members of NABSE from across the country are asked to nominate principals “who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills that have led to a greater sense of student, teaching staff and parental community support.” Dr. Williams, who has led Pulaski since 2011, topped the field and received the national honor. “It’s great to see that the work that you’ve done over the years is recognized by such a prestigious national organization,” he said. “Aside from being humbling, it validates our efforts to move kids in a positive direction. We’ve been able to change the culture and climate at the school while increasing student achievement, which is

our mission at the school.” During Dr. Willams’ time at Pulaski, reading and math proficiency have improved. He also implemented a student leadership initiative that encourages students to take pride in their school community and serve as role models to younger students. “We’re always pleased when the spotlight shines on the hard work of our school leaders,” MPS Superintendent Gregory Thornton said. “I am especially proud of Dr. Williams receiving this prestigious honor.” The Pulaski principal was nominated by retired longtime MPS principal Rogers Onick, who won the award in 2006. The honor was bestowed the same month that the High School of Business (HSOB) national organization honored Pulaski business teacher Mauricio Garzon for his dedication to building the HSOB program at Pulaski. Now in its second

year, the HSOB program is for students who want to study business in college, and particularly those who plan on pursuing an MBA or their own business. “Our goal is that students who graduate from the HSOB program are wellprepared with the skills and knowledge to enter either college business administration programs, other postsecondary education, or the workforce,” MPS Career and Technical Education Coordinator Eric Radomski said. “We rely on Mr. Garzon’s leadership efforts to make that goal a reality.” In addition to the business program, Pulaski has a Career and Technical Education program of study in transportation, which includes automotive coursework and hybrid-electric vehicle curriculum. Pulaski’s auto shop is home to two hybrid-electric vehicles donated by Johnson Dr. Darrell Williams, leader at MPS’ Pulaski High, Controls. is named the NABSE Principal of the Year.

Thousands attend Fresh Coast Classic College Fair Fresh Coast Classic student college scholarship recipients were honored Wednesday, November 27 during the 2013 FCC College Fair by Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Gregory Thornton; Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett; Milwaukee Ald. Willie Wade, Dawn and Victor Barnett of Running Rebels; and presenting sponsor Barry Mandel. Sponsors Molina Healthcare, Northwestern Mutual and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee were also recognized. Thousands of students attended this year’s fair, which exposes students as young as 2nd grade to college opportunities including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and local institutions of higher education.

Giving thanks and helping others

On Thursday, November 21, 2013, students from Brown Street Academy delivered nearly 1,000 pounds of food to benefit local families this Thanksgiving. As part of Walk for Hope, the culmination of the school’s annual monthlong food drive, students walked from their school across Johnson Park to deliver their nonperishable food donations to Feeding America. This is the 14th year that Brown Street Academy students have supported local families through Feeding America, which supplies food to more than 300,000 people in Wisconsin.

The fair, which was created in 2007 by Running Rebels, was organized this year through MPS’ TEAMUP College Access Centers, located at 27th & Fond du Lac and 27th & Morgan, which provide counselors and programming to demystify college for thousands of Milwaukee students. The centers served 3,600 students last year. Pictured are MPS Superintendent Gregory Thornton; Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett; Milwaukee Ald. Willie Wade, Dawn and Victor Barnett of Running Rebels; and presenting sponsor Barry Mandel; along with the Fresh Coast scholarship recipients.

Talking Health with Dr. Carter


By Dr. Lester Carter Owner, Carter Drug Store

Coenzyme Q10: Breakthrough with CoQ (part 5) 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. Here is a brief overview of other areas of supplemental CoQ 10 effectiveness. • Dental health: surprisingly, oral health doesn't depend solely on regular brushing, flossing, and cleaning. Gum disease basically

is a bacterial, inflammatory process. When a flagging immune system is marked by by CQ10 deficiency, even the most severe cases have resulted in renewed oral health with CoQ10 supplementation. Take 120 mg of CoQ10 twice daily. Improvement is gradual and takes about three months. • Overweight: Overweight may also represent a CoQ10 deficiency connection. Some obese people have only half the fuel burning capacity of lean people. By improving energy production with supplemental CoQ10

calorie-burning may be enhanced, yielding weight loss. In a controlled study, individuals eating only 650 calories a day and not losing weight were given 100 mg of CoQ10. At nine weeks, the

CoQ10 group showed an average loss of 30 pounds while the nondeficient groups lost only 13 pounds. Researchers theorize that at least half of all overweight adults might benefit from daily use of CoQ10 as a diet adjunct. • Infertility: About 6 million couples are unable to conceive. Male infertility accounts for 50 percent of cases. Coenzyme Q10 improves the motility of sperm and protects seminal fluid from free radical injury. To improve reproductive function (besides a healthy

diet), take a multivitaminmineral formula and CoQ10. Include vitamins C and E, zinc, and the amino acids nacetyl-cysteine and arginine. In one study, fertilization rates were improved with 60 mg of CoQ10 per day. Other areas where CoQ10 supplementation shows promise include diabetes, neurogenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's), AIDS, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, skin damage, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Reducing holiday stress, keeping a realistic perspective

By Joanne Barker Reviewed By Hansa D. Bhargava, MD

Talk about stressful. The average American spends 42 hours a year on holiday activities. That's one standard work week spent shopping, wrapping, and returning presents, attending holiday parties, and traveling from place to place. Often these extra activities get squeezed into already busy schedules. Holiday stress can take many forms. In a survey conducted by Mental Health America, money concerns and chaotic schedules are two of the top sources of holiday stress. Women reported feeling slightly more stressed than men -- and parents in general feel more stressed than most groups. This year, take the pressure off. Here are eight tips to help you relax this holiday season. 1. Put stress in its place: It's not about the holidays People who get stressed out easily are most likely to feel intense stress during the holidays. It's really all about you, and not about the holidays. But there's good news. You can learn to put stress in its place, and take the pressure off throughout the year. "Stress and distress are often related to worrying about the future or fretting about the past," says David Levingston, LMFT, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Brattleboro, VT. To find peace and joy in any season, he advises focusing on the present moment. 2. Create the holiday you want "When the holidays come around, there may be pressures pulling you in all directions off your center," Levingston says. He suggests you make clear decisions about

how you want to spend your time and resources. Do it early, before the decorations go up around town. Consider what is most important to you. What memories will you look back on when the season winds down? A little advance planning can help identify areas where you could cut back. Maybe nobody in your family enjoys certain functions. If so, be ready to RSVP with a polite no thank you. 3. Involve your kids "It's a part of all holidays that people get thrown off schedule," says Hinda Dubin, MD, a University of Maryland professor of psychiatry. Dubin advises parents to stick with kids' regular meal and bedtime schedules as much as possible. Eating and going to sleep at roughly the same time each day is good for children, Dubin says. Kids feel more secure when their days follow a predictable order. It improves their moods, and helps to create a peaceful household. Of course, a

regular schedule isn't always possible during the holidays. You can offset holiday chaos by involving your children in holiday planning. Having a say in the planning can help your kids feel more in control during busy times. 4. Beware of shopping pitfalls Shopping -- especially if you're worried about money or getting elbowed in the stores -- can drain the fun out of the holiday season. People who focus on gifts generally feel less holiday cheer than those who spend more time with close friends and family. Also, despite your best efforts, your gifts may not express your love as well as you hope. According to a survey by Consumer Reports, up to 49 million people get gifts they don't want each year. Some people donate their holiday duds to charity, return them, or try to sell them on eBay. A few even post photos of "bad gifts" online. So, think about what your loved one truly enjoys. Perhaps lunch out together

would be appreciated more than a scarf. 5. Get creative in your gift giving Many families have had to cut back on holiday gifts. If this includes you, have a family meeting and get creative. "Some families draw names and each person buys for one person. Some families do handmade gifts or coupons," Dubin says. A coupon might be good for a massage or night off from doing the dishes, for instance. You don't have to go into debt to make the holidays special. 6. Play games Games can keep things fun and light at family gatherings. "Games are a good way to connect with each other and engage your mind, body, and imagination," says Levingston. The game is up to you. You can play games indoors or out, and they can be anything from a walk, treasure hunt, cards, or charades. "The key thing is, you are in the moment." 7. Postpone family feuds There is a reason many

people equate holidays with family strife. "When you have a group of people in a small area and everyone expecting to have a great time, it is almost a set up for arguments," Dubin tells WebMD. With so much emotion and expectation, the holidays are not the best time to work things out. If old family baggage surfaces, plan to talk after the festivities wind down. "It's better to address emotional issues in a more relaxed, private setting," Dubin says. 8. Have compassion for yourself and others Even if you shop less and focus on family time, stressed-out friends, in-laws, and co-workers may still come calling. How can you be a good friend and keep your calm? Try not to take things personally. Levingston says that's one of the most important skills you can learn to reduce stress. During the holidays in particular, he says, most people are trying to get their needs met. Maybe it's their need for love or simply for validation. "Even if someone is being a jerk or insensitive, it is their way of trying to get their needs met," Levingston says. So try not to think about how people "should be." Accept them as they are, and release the tension from your body. "I think when we can see where people are coming from, there can be less frustration and more compassion," Levingston says.

"The key thing is, you are in the moment."

Milwaukee community says farewell to "Great Mother" Ruthia M. Brookens

Services were held November 2, 2013 for Ruthia M. Turner-Brookens, known as "The Great Mother," at St. Mark A.M.E. Church, 1616 W. Atkinson Avenue, Milwaukee, where she had been a member since 1950. She was also a member of its gospel chorus for almost 50 years. Proclamations were issued by Governor Scott Walker, Mayor Tom Barrett, Russell Stamper Jr., of the County Board, and a letter was sent by the Honorable Gwendolyn S. Moore, U.S. Representative, whose campaigns for State Senate and her current office the Great Mother had worked on. In attendance at the memorial services were also former State Repre-

sentative A. Polly Williams, County Board Supervisor Willie Johnson, and Sherry Hill, former director of the Milwaukee Governor's Office, among others. The Milwaukee JournalSentinel also cited her in a November 3, 2013 article, "Brookens Was Mother To All." It had previously cited her on June 5, 1997 in an article, "Family Story Is An Education All By Itself," for successfully raising six children, all of whom attended college, with many of them having postgraduate degrees, while using Christian and leadership principles. Brookens became so widely known as a mother figure that she earned the nickname Great Mother. Word of that

including former State Rep. Polly Williams, the late former Deputy Superintendent of Schools, Barbara PowellHorton, former Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Russell Stamper and members of the clergy. This event recognized the mothering instincts of Ruthia Brookens, which extended far beyond her family, as they recognized her for inspiring and producing quality leaders through endless motivation by a labor of love Family Photo to the public schools, politispread to the mayor's office cal, and church communities, and, in 1998, Mayor John and at the polls, and by many, Norquist and Gov. Tommy G. many other gestures of love. Thompson declared a "Great After dropping off her own Mother Ruthia Brookens children at school, she'd go Day," said the November 3 back and comb the neigharticle.

said she came to her home, picked her children up and took them to the library to teach them how to be somebody. Another friend said she came to her home asking if her children had summer jobs, delivered letters of employment to them from the mayor's office, and followed through by delivering them to their workplace on their first day. This included the neighbor's teenage brother visiting from Mississippi for whom she also found employment. "Great Mother" was quick to share lessons and had many famous quotes: (Continued on pg. 16)

AT&T Pioneers donate over 530 winter clothing items to help keep students warm this winter at Clarke Street, Ben Franklin schools ‘Warm Smiles for Kids’ pogram accepting donations through January 31 Students from two of Milwaukee Public 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 “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

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.

'Letters to an Incarcerated Brother' by Hill Harper “borrow” a car, gain respect. Make a little money and it’d be all good, right? Now that lock you had… has you. You’re in prison and it’s a whole new world in there, one you’re not sure you can survive. But when you read “Letters to an Incarcerated Brother” by Hill Harper, you’ll see that you have choices. It’s no secret that there are more people in American prisons than ever before. “In less than thirty years,” says Harper, "our prison population has mushroomed.” But though statistics show that are likely to return, c.2013, Gotham Books offenders Harper says “there is hope $27.50 / $29.00 Canada and there are solutions.” This 400 pages book lays them out. When Harper was contacted by an old friend who You figured you had a lock landed in “county,” he admiton things. ted to the young man that he Sell or steal a little some- “didn’t know what to say.” thing. Hold for somebody, Harper believes himself to

be a problem-solver. He had no answers that time, but he quickly discovered some. First, he says, find mentorship. You can’t go it alone, so look for someone you want to make proud. Consider prison as a place to “make… tune-ups and adjustments” in your life, but remember that “you need to be prepared to change.” Stay patient, even though it’s hard and even though you don’t always understand what’s to come. Sometimes, “it’s more important for you to simply understand you.” Learn to keep your mind free, even if your body is not. Get as much education as you can: get your GED, look for college coursework that’s available to incarcerated students, and read. The time you spend in prison shouldn’t go to waste; use it to better your mind. Stay in your children’s lives

"Great Mother"

a retired school administrator, Theresa Brookens, a lawyer, sons Karl Brookens, an auditor for the state, and Herbert Brookens of Washington, D.C.; 7 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Another son, Lloyd, died in 1994, as well as her late husband, Benoit, Sr. in 1997. Memorials are suggested to the Greater Parenting Foundation in care of Educators Credit Union, 7139 N. Port Washington Rd.

(Continued from pg. 14) "What you do for self dies with you; what you do for the community will become a legend and last long after you're gone; moreover it will inspire others to give because they have received the same." Ruthia Turner, the great grand-daughter fourth removed of Nat Turner, famous civil rights activist, was born in Smale, AK, the youngest of six children of middle-class landowners. She was valedictorian of her high school class where she was even then allowed to major in chemistry, where the lowest grades she received were an A+. She met her husband, the late Benoit Brookens, Sr., when he came home after serving in World War II and spotted her. They married in 1947, moved to Milwaukee in 1950 for his job at Allis Chalmers, and joined St. Mark A.M. E. Church and were lifelong members. Due to activities and parenthood demands, in her mid-life she attended Milwaukee Area Technical College, earning an associate degree; while working in various capacities at the county in administrative, supervision, and at the local library. But Brookens never gave up on the kids, and people never gave up on her guidance. Many sought her advice. She'd say, 'We're losing the children, talk to them, reason with them, show

them love, encourage them, and set high standards." She had a vision for raising children which enabled them to graduate high school by age 16 and be out of college by 20. One of her last visions was establishment of the Greater Parent Foundation, where great mothers and fathers could be recognized and parenting skills passed on. Brookens is survived by Benoit Brookens, Jr., a lawyer, Gloria Brookens Dooley,

any way you can. Keep away from prison gangs and trouble; it’s only going to make things worse. Learn not to take things personally. Understand that real men do ask for help when they need it. Eliminate disrespectful words from your vocabulary, particularly in reference to women. Set goals. Learn to apologize and embrace change. Be a leader. And do not “micro-quit.” In his introduction, author Hill Harper lays out several goals for this book: among others, to show the importance of education, to offer inspiration through example, and to explain how to “beat the odds and avoid returning” to jail. Definitely, those goals

are attained but that’s not all. Harper offers words of wisdom from influential contributors to support his ideas. There’s guidance here, help and resources, and he displays gentle patience, even deference, for his friend – but Harper’s nobody’s fool. He’s not afraid to call the man on his lies and half-truths, and he’s not afraid to show frustration. Such realism makes this one powerful book. This isn’t just a reference for inmates, though. It’ll also be a great help for families, as well as a caution for boys who are headed for trouble. If that – or encouragement, sense, or inspiration – is what you need, “Letters to an Incarcerated Brother” has it locked up.

Personal Finance & Business

By Jason Alderman Director of Visa’s financial education programs

Watch out for potholes in your car insurance Would you be surprised to learn that if your laptop gets stolen during a car break-in, your automobile insurance probably won't reimburse you for the loss? Don't be. Many people have only a vague idea of things like: what their car insurance does and doesn't cover; how they might accidentally void their coverage; or that even if an accident isn't their fault, their own insurance may not pay for damages if they don't have the right kind of coverage. Common car insurance exclusions include: • Named driver exclusion. This is an agreement between you and your insurance company to exclude a specific person from coverage for liability or physical damage caused when driving a car you insure. You might choose it if, for example, the insurer is threatening to cancel your policy because a family member has an unsafe driving record or a suspended license.

Such drivers should never be allowed to drive cars from which they've been excluded; it's the same as driving uninsured and you both could be held personally liable for any damages. Interestingly, some policies will cover friends and/or family members when they drive your car, provided they don't live in your household. Coverage levels in such situations may be less, so check your policy carefully for details. • Car rental insurance.

Car rental agencies offer their own collision, liability, theft and other insurance coverage. Conventional wisdom says you should avoid buying it if your own insurance – or benefits available from your credit card – provide similar coverage for rental cars. However, first contact your insurance company and credit card issuer to make sure you are fully covered. • Replacing stolen items. Most car insurance policies won't reimburse you for items stolen from your car

that are not permanently installed (like built-in sound systems). These might include cellphones, computers, wallets, luggage, etc. However, homeowners or renters insurance generally covers your personal property, no matter from where it's stolen. • Business use restrictions. You must maintain a business car insurance policy if you use your personal vehicle for business purposes, whether you deliver pizzas part-time, participate in a ride-sharing service (like Lyft or Sidecar), or even run business errands for your boss. Otherwise, you may not be covered in an accident or theft and may even void your coverage. Ask whether your employer's policy covers you; if not, add business use to your own policy or use a company car. Other coverage shortfalls to watch out for: • If your car is stolen or damaged, most insurers cap payments for a loaner car at specific daily and total usage

rates, so if you want a nicer loaner car or your vehicle needs extensive repairs, you might have to pay out-ofpocket for some expenses. • If your car is stolen or totaled, the insurer will reimburse you for what the car is currently worth (Blue Book value), which, if you're leasing or paying off a loan, may not be enough to cover what you owe. In that case, consider getting gap insurance. • Don't skimp on uninsured motorist coverage, which protects you if the other driver is at fault and isn't insured. It's relatively inexpensive compared to the collision coverage you take out in case you're at fault, so why tempt fate? •Policies generally won't provide liability coverage for injuries or property damage that were caused intentionally. Even if you drive a clunker, it pays to have adequate car insurance. Just make sure you fully understand what is and isn't covered.

Don't let cyber Grinches ruin your holidays I'm usually in too much of a Thanksgiving food coma to hit the sales on Black Friday, but millions of other Americans somehow find the energy. Last year, 89 million people took advantage of Black Friday sales (57 million of them online), while an estimated 247 million shopped throughout the four-day weekend, as stores increasingly have opened their doors on Thanksgiving itself. In addition, millions of bargain hunters spent another $2 billion on Cyber Monday, so it's clear that online holiday shopping is here to stay. Unfortunately, cyber criminals have zeroed in on this trend and are redoubling their efforts to separate shoppers from their hardearned cash. Whether you're shopping online by computer, smartphone or tablet, here are some common cyber scams to watch out for and security precautions to take: Tips for buying gift cards: • Only buy from secure websites of trusted retailers (look for an "s" in the "https://" web address and a lock symbol). • At walk-in stores, only purchase cards from employees who have them locked up. Avoid cards at unattended display racks, since thieves can scan the card's unique serial number; then, after you've loaded it with cash, drain its value with online

ed. • Hackers create realisticlooking web addresses that, when clicked, take you to a bogus site that can infect your device with malware or install a Trojan Horse program to steal your personal information. To be safe, let your cursor hover over web addresses you didn't type in yourself and look for misspelled or weird-looking sequences of characters. • Before completing an purchases before the recipient has a chance to use it. • Never purchase deeply discounted cards or event tickets from online marketplaces like eBay or Craigslist – chances are good that the cards are counterfeit or were stolen. Most retailers offer holiday sales as a way to boost their year-end bottom line. If you've "liked" a product or store on Facebook or Twitter, or have signed up to receive their emails, you may well get genuine offers for steep discounts or last-minute sales. But beware of bogus offers from sites that mimic those of legitimate retailers. They could be: • Trying to harvest your credit card number and other personal information to make illegitimate charges to your account or open new accounts in your name.

• Attempting to sell you counterfeit or stolen goods. • Trying to gain access to your social media profile to log into other accounts tied to it, or to post illegitimate offers purportedly endorsed by you to lure in your friends. • Another common scam is to send an email claiming a courier is trying to deliver a package or there's a problem with your order. You'll be told to click on a link to get details and will likely be asked to reveal account or other personal information to verify. Unless you previously provided them your email address, this is probably bogus. A few additional holidayrelated security tips: • When shopping online, avoid pop-up ads touting incredible deals. If you think it might be real, log into the retailer's website yourself to see whether the deal is post-

online order, visit the site's "Contact Us" and "Terms and Conditions" pages for their phone number, mailing address, return policies, etc. Phony sites often either don't have such pages or they're filled with easy-tospot errors. Don't let the prospect of getting a great deal during the holiday allow you to drop your guard against scammers who would love to fill your stocking with coal.

Tips for Starting the Hospice Conversation Discussing hospice with your loved one can be a difficult choice, but there are ways to make the conversation easier. AseraCare® recommends keeping the following tips in mind when deciding to have this important conversation. •

When faced with a diagnosis of a terminal disease, discuss your options for care, including hospice, with your doctor, family member or clergyman.

Find a quiet time and a place with no distractions to broach the subject.

Include as many of the family in the conversation as is comfortable for all.

Remember that feelings and reactions may be highly emotional, so give everyone time to adjust to the idea.

Don’t expect a decision immediately, but give everyone the freedom to discuss the topic in the future.

Hospice can be provided in your home, in a nursing home, in a hospital or in a hospice facility. Regardless of the venue, hospice provides a team of caring professionals who can manage the medical and emotional needs of both the patient and the family.

Ask for a free hospice consultation so that you understand the services available. Medicare and many insurance plans cover hospice services.

If you have questions about how hospice can help your family focus on the important moments in life, contact us today. AseraCare - Milwaukee 6737 W.
