On Friday, December 30, 2016 Northcott Neighborhood House, Inc., hosted their annual "Milwaukee Lights A Candle for Change," candlelight vigil for the homicide victims of 2016. The vigil was officiated at St. Gabriel Church of God in Christ, 5375 North 37th Street, and was presided over by Pastor Lee Shaw. Along with songs, praise dances, and words of comfort and encouragement, family members lit candles in remembrance of their loved ones who died by violence this past year. The names of all 168 victims who died by violence last year were read by Sis. Rose Stietz and Rev. Gregory Lewis of Pastors United (pictured). The event was co-sponsored by Northcott Neighborhood House, Inc., Pastors United, MICAH, and Wisconsin Annual Conference of United Methodist Churches, in cooperation with Milwaukee County.

Dylann Roof is sentenced to death in Charleston church massacre Dylann S. Roof, the impenitent and inscrutable white supremacist who killed nine African American churchgoers in a brazenly racial assault almost 19 months ago, shocking the world over the persistence of extremist hatred in dark corners of the American South, was condemned to death by a federal jury on Tuesday, January 10, 2016. The jury of nine whites and three blacks, who last month found Roof guilty of 33 counts for the attack at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, SC, returned their unanimous verdict after about three hours of deliberations in the penalty phase of a heart-rending and often legally confounding trial. He showed no expression as the verdict was announced. Two relatives exchanged a long embrace as the jury left the courtroom. The guilt of Roof, who coolly confessed to the killings and then justified them without remorse in a jailhouse manifesto, was never in serious doubt during the first phase of the proceedings in Federal District Court in December. By the time the jurors began their deliberations on his sentence, it seemed inevitable that they would lean toward death, not only because of the heinous nature of the crimes but because Roof, 22, insisted on

denying any psychological incapacity, called no witnesses, presented no evidence in his defense and mostly sidelined his court-appointed lawyers. His family, which has been mostly silent since his arrest, said in a statement on Tuesday that they would “struggle as long as we live to understand why he committed this horrible attack, which caused so much pain to so many good people.” The decision effectively capped Roof ’s first trial for the killings on June 17, 2015, when after six scouting visits to Charleston, he showed up in Emanuel’s fellowship hall and was offered a seat for Bible study by the Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney. Roof sat quietly; then, about 45 minutes into the study, Roof brandished the .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun he had smuggled into the church in a waist pouch. First taking aim at Rev. Pinckney, who was a state senator and the youngest African American ever elected to South Carolina’s Legislature, he be-

Obama's farewell (Continued from pg. 1) “It has been the honor of my life to serve you,” Mr. Obama said. “I won’t stop; in fact, I will be right there with you, as a citizen, for all my remaining days.” He drew some of the most thunderous applause of the night when he paid tribute to his wife, Michelle — “my best friend” — and Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. — “a brother.” As the crowd of 18,000 clapped and stamped their feet, Mr. Obama dabbed his eyes. Afterward, Mrs. Obama and her elder daughter, Malia, appeared onstage with the president, along with Mr. Biden and his wife, Jill. The Obamas’ younger daughter, Sasha, stayed in Washington because she has an exam in school on Wednesday morning, the White House said. But Mr. Obama clearly wanted to use his last major turn on the national stage to send a message. Americans, he said, should not take their democracy for granted. Lamenting the perennially low voter turnout rates, Mr. Obama urged people to become involved. “If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the internet,” he said, “try to talk with one in real

life. “America is not a fragile thing,” the president said. “But the gains of our long journey to freedom are not assured.” Mr. Obama’s message recalled his final State of the Union address last year, as well as speeches he gave in Springfield, IL; at the commencement ceremonies at Howard University and Rutgers University; and during the Democratic National Convention. There was, however, an undeniable tinge of sadness to Mr. Obama’s leave-taking — the dread among many in this crowd that his legacy will be undone by Mr. Trump, and the disappointment that, for all his political gifts, he was unable to hand over his office to his chosen successor, Hillary Clinton. Many said they had waited hours in the cold to get tickets, like Ja-mese McGee, an elementary school teacher from the Chicago suburb

gan to fire seven magazines of hollow-point rounds.. In addition to Rev. Pinckney, eight other people were killed: Cynthia Hurd, Ethel Lee Lance, the Rev. DePayne Middleton Doctor, the Rev. Daniel L. Simmons Sr., the Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Susie Jackson, Tywanza Sanders and Myra Thompson. They were familiar, frequent presences at the church known as the oldest A.M.E. congregation in the Deep South and one with a storied history of resistance to slavery and civil rights advocacy over nearly 200 years. In 10 days of testimony, their names and photographs appeared again and again. Family members filled the reserved seats on the right side of the courtroom each day, and 23 relatives and friends delivered emotional testimonials to their character and the impact of their loss. The jury found Roof guilty in December of hate crimes resulting in death, obstruction of religion, and use of Country Club Hills. Those hours had a purpose. She wanted to demonstrate to her students that seeing Mr. Obama was worth the wait. “Better than waiting to shop on Black Friday. Better than waiting in line for gym shoes,” she said. But Ms. McGee was troubled by Mr. Trump’s inauguration, and the damage it could do to Mr. Obama’s legacy. “There’s so much to say about him,” she said. “He maintained class, he maintained dignity. Honestly, I don’t want him to leave, but I’m sure it will be a load off his shoulders.” Alvin Love, a Baptist minister, walked through the crowd holding the hand of his 6-year-old granddaughter, Bayleigh Love, who wore a red sequined party dress. He and Mr. Obama go back 30 years, when the president was a young community organizer on the South Side. “It’s mixed emotions for me,” he said. “I’m sad to see it come to an end, but proud and happy to see the work that he’s done.” Mr. Love said he believed Mr. Obama’s work could be sustained, even with the advent of a Trump presidency. “Any time right is done, it will sooner or later stand up again.”

a firearm to commit murder during a crime of violence. Eighteen of the 33 counts carried a potential death sentence. Although Roof declined to testify or present any evidence, his trial was unusual for the jury’s ability to hear from an accused mass murderer in his own unapologetic words. They watched video of his two-hour confession to the FBI, and heard readings of his online manifesto, a journal found in his car, suicide letters to his parents, and a jail house essay written within seven weeks after his arrest. Roof ’s rampage staggered the Charelston area, which was already reeling from the April 2015 shooting death of an unarmed black man, Walter L. Scott, by Michael T. Slager, a white police officer in North Charleston. But two days after the church shootings, with Roof standing expressionless in the Charleston County jail, five relatives of the victims publicly offered him forgiveness during an extraordinary bond hearing. The following week, President Barack Obama argued in a soaring eulogy for Rev. Pinckney, that the attacks lessons offered a way forward for race relations. Later, South Carolina lawmakers voted to remove the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Statehouse in Columbia, where

it had flown for more than a half-century and enjoyed decades of political protection. The Justice Department announced last May that its prosecutors would seek the death penalty for Roof, in part because of what officials described as his “substantial planning and premeditation” and his “hatred and contempt” toward black people. Although federal capital prosecutions are complex and expensive, the government rejected Roof ’s offer to plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence. Federal law classifies the jury’s decision as a binding “recommendation,” and Roof was sentenced formally on Wednesday, January 11. Yet the verdict confers no certainty about whether Roof will ever be put to death at a federal prison in Terre Haute, IN. His case could spur years of appeals and the scarcity of lethal injection drugs could hinder his execution. The federal government has not killed one of its prisoners since 2003. Roof also faces a separate capital prosecution for murder in South Carolina, where no inmate has been put to death in more than five years. The state trial, initially set for Jan. 17, has been indefinitely postponed.

Marlene Johnson-Odom passes Marlene Johnson-Odom a long-time Milwaukee resident who served the sixth aldermanic district for more than 24 years, passed away on Monday, January 9, 2017. Johnson-Odom often described herself as a “Kennedy girl,” meaning that she grew up in the era of John F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign, where she became a solid Democrat. Always approachable, Johnson-Odom succeeded her first husband Ben Johnson on the Common Council, and was frequently praised for working with developers to increase investments in her district. For example, property values which were

dropping when she took office have now increased, and she was especially proud of the development that has taken place along Brewers’ Hill and Humboldt Avenue. Her goal in working with developers was to help flatten property tax rates because of the range of income brackets in the sixth aldermanic district. Johnson-Odom earned a bachelor of science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and held a variety of positions— as a TV hostess at Channel 18 and for Milwaukee Public Schools as a social improvement instructor—before running for alderman in

Marlene Johnson-Odom 1980. A quiet leader, Johnson-Odom was always accessible and involved in the community before losing the election to Michael McGee, Jr. Though retired, she remained involved in the com-

munity, working quietly to facilitate change and make a difference in the community she called home. In more recent years she retired to Mississippi to be closer to family. In a statement released by Alderman Michael J. Murphy on Tuesday, January 10, 2017, Murphy shared his thoughts on the passing of his former colleague: "I am saddened to learn of the passing of Marlene Johnson-Odom, a former Common Council colleague with whom I had the honor of serving for many years. "Marlene was a trailblazer and a conscientious, deeply committed public servant

who served with genuine honesty and integrity. She was a tireless advocate for her constituents and for the poor and disenfranchised, and her gentle kindness came through in how she treated people. "She will also be greatly missed by her family, friends, and former constituents." Ms. Johnson-Odom's remains are being returned to Milwaukee for services, which are currently still pending. Final arrangements will be handled by Reid's New Golden Gate Funeral Home, (414) 358-0538.

Astronaut Jeanette Epps makes history as first African American to board International Space Station For the first time ever, NASA will be sending an African American crew member to the International Space Station (ISS). The astronaut, Jeanette Epps, will be headed up to the station under the command of veteran astronaut Andrew Feustel in 2018. “Each space station crew brings something different to the table, and Drew and Jeanette both have a lot to offer,” said Chris Cassidy, chief of the Astronaut Office at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. “The space station will benefit from having them on board.” While previous African

The pursuit of happiness It is the year 2017. It is a wonderful time to be alive on this small planet. The world is a beautiful place. The people on earth are okay, most of the time. There are many positive events taking place in the world. We should devote 2017 to the pursuit of happiness. In order to accomplish this we have to understand that happiness comes from within. First, take the time to find out what makes you happy at this point in life. This is something many people never stop to think about. Many people’s lives have become one big problem. The closest thing to happiness many people achieve is when they listen to other people’s problems. We have to find out what brings a smile to our face. What makes you feel good inside? Does this effect come from outside you or within? Many people think they are happy when they laugh. Laughter is good for the soul, but often it comes at another’s expense. When was the www.milwaukeetimesnews.com

last time you were alone feeling happy and content? Many people need external stimulation to begin to feel this way. That is fine to start the process, but you have to be able to feel happy without externals. I will explain why this is key. Many people feel happy when something goes their way. A football team wins, or a favorite person calls them. These examples are nice when they take place. What happens when the team loses, or the person doesn’t call? In many cases people who need such external stimu-

has your life become so drab that you need to feed off of misery? Do you need to share and pick up problems from others? Are these actions true happiness? Does social media generate happiness within oneself, or keep you from finding happiness in yourself ? Family has often been tied to happiness. In many cases family does generate external happiness. Too often, family becomes an anchor around people’s neck that drags them into misery. Family is the one factor that people do not see the misery it creates. Biological connections create misery and problems, but we don’t see it because it is family. Family can send you soaring into uncharted realms of happiness, and then drop you into an abyss of misery in the next instant. Family is an inconsistent form of happiness.

li fall into negative moods. The team lost, now a person is arguing or mad at others. That favorite person fails to call for a day or two and depression engulfs you. This is why a person has to find out how to generate happiness inside themselves. Social media is another option people turn to in the pursuit of happiness. Social media is a diversion from living. Social media is a fancy name for being nosy. Social media is a way to adopt You have to be able to find other people’s problems. If happiness inside of yourself. this is a form of happiness This is a form of happiness to you, hey, go for it. If so, that you control and moni-

tor. You can’t control if the team wins. You can’t make that special person call or come by. Lord knows you can’t make your family act right. Social media will make you a nutcase, but you will be one of billions. The happiness you find in yourself will never be lost. Once you tap into true harmony you can always find this form of happiness. In 2017 devote at least 15 minutes a day seeking that personal happiness. Once you find it, you may never give up this form of happiness.

The Counseling Corner

By Rev. Judith T. Lester, B.Min. M.Th

Ignorance is not bliss: The importance of sound biblical doctrine to God’s people (Part 2) “You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine.” - (Titus 2:1)

As the people of God, we must be well-grounded in God’s Word. If you do not study, you become susceptive to falling into the trouble traps of false teachers. We are fortunate to have the Bible, which is replete with foundations that are Christ-centered and dependable. We must study it, meditate on it and apply its doctrinal principles to our everyday lives. Why? Swindoll suggests that there are basically six benefits for being grounded in the truth of God’s Word: (1) Knowledge gives substance to our faith; (2) Knowledge stabilizes us during times of testing; (3) Knowledge enables us to handle the Bible accurately; (4) Knowledge equips us to detect and confront error; (5) Knowledge makes us confident in our daily walk; and (6) Spiritual truth filters

out fears and superstitions. (Swindoll, The Bible, pp. 3536). This month this column is focusing on the importance of sound biblical doctrine to God’s people. This week we will outline the attributes of Scripture. The major teachings of the Bible about itself can be classified under four major characteristics (sometimes called attributes): authority, clarity, necessity and sufficiency. The authority of Scripture enjoys the right to rule and command our obedience. It is the principium cognoscendi (the

beginning of knowledge) of Christian theology, and the causa media (mediating instrument) of our knowledge of God. The Scriptures speak with authority, as does no other literature in the world and is our final authority in faith and conduct. Scripture bears prophetic witness to Christ and is designed to instruct believers in divine matters. The Old Testament is repeatedly cited in the New Testament as the univocal Word of God. When we find that message, we have God’s truth to us which is all we need for religious

knowledge, faith and obedience. (Mullins, Baptists Beliefs, pp. 11-13.) The clarity of Scripture means the Bible is written in such a way that its teachings can be understood by all who would read it seeking God’s help and being willing to follow it. Because it is clear, Scripture also attests to its certainty, God comes into our life and we know beyond a pre-adventure that the Bible speaks to us truly concerning God. The necessity of Scripture means the Bible is necessary for knowing the gospel, for maintaining spiritual life and for knowing God’s will, but it is not necessary for knowing that God exists or for knowing something about God’s character and moral laws. The sufficiency of Scripture means that the Scriptures contains all the words of God that God intended for His people to have at each stage of redemptive history and that it now contains all the words of God we need for salvation, for trusting and obeying God perfectly.

Theology, pp. 73-138.)

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration at King Center, Jan. 16 “Everybody Can Be Great” is the theme of this year’s public celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, Monday, Jan. 16, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The Center is located at 1531 W. Vliet St. “In the words of Dr. King, ‘Everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service’,” said Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. “In his sermon, ‘The Drum Major Instinct,’ Dr. King teaches us that it is not status or fame that makes us great, but our commitment to others through service. King was a great man, and we celebrate his life and legacy.” To honor King, the program will include music, dance, and spoken word, and will feature guest speaker Tyra McFarland, Community Relations Coordinator for the Milwaukee Bucks. The first 200 people at-

tending the program will receive a token for a ticket to the afternoon Milwaukee Bucks game, including transportation from and returning to the Center. Minors must be accompanied by an adult to receive a token/ticket and to ride the bus. The Bucks will be playing the Philadelphia 76ers. A King Center open house will follow the program, from 11:30 a.m.–2 p.m. Birthday cake will be available while the supply lasts. Discounted Center memberships, which include admission to both the King and Kosciuszko community centers, will be offered at the King Center only, Jan. 16 from 9–10:15 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m., and Jan. 17 from 9 a.m.–8 p.m. For all youths age 13–17, the salute to King will continue with a DJ dance party sponsored by King Advisory, Inc., in partnership with Fresh Empire, the FDA’s

MPS school nurse uses CPR to save student's life As school nurse Marlene Priewe entered Kilbourn School over the lunch period on a typical school day, a staff member immediately rushed her to the cafeteria where a three-year-old child lay unconscious and unbreathing. With her coat still on, Priewe began chest compressions on the small boy, a student in the Head Start program. The chest compressions quickly expelled food from the boy’s airway and he began breathing. The child had suffered a seizure while eating lunch and unbeknownst to staff, food had lodged in his airway.

Because of her quick action and knowledge of emergency procedures, the boy returned home safely that evening. Priewe was honored with a Heart Hero award by Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin through its Project ADAM initiative. The program works to save lives by preventing and responding to sudden cardiac deaths, and is named after a student from Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Fire Department was also present to congratulate Priewe for receiving the award.

Diabetes a growing threat in blacks who are heavy smokers He knows cigarettes are bad for him. He knows years of smoking causes the pain in his lungs when he runs up and down the basketball court. But Terrence Raper said he’s not quitting any time soon. “My health is not really a major concern of my own,” said the 29-year-old father of two from Arlington, TX. The veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan started smoking in the Army about 10 years ago. Researcher Wendy White, Ph.D., hopes the work she does changes Raper’s mind. The scientist at Mississippi’s Tougaloo College has spent close to 15 years studying how smoking affects the health of Black Americans. Results from a recent study she led suggest heavy smoking increases the risk of diabetes in Blacks, who have higher rates of the disease compared to U.S. whites and Hispanics. For the study, the investigators selected nearly 3,000 people, mostly women, who did not have diabetes when they enrolled in the Jackson Heart Study, a large study of cardiovascular disease in African Americans. The researchers looked at data from more than half of the people in the Jackson sample. The majority of subjects had never smoked when they signed up. Only 361 people smoked, and 119 of them were heavy smokers, meaning they smoked at least 20

cigarettes — or a pack — daily. White said the No. 1 finding is that smoking at least a pack a day may cause diabetes in Blacks. Both diabetes and smoking are tied to cardiovascular disease. “We hear all the time about smoking and lung cancer and other lung disease, but the risk with smoking and diabetes is there,” said White, the deputy director of the Jackson Heart Study’s Undergraduate Training and Education Center. The findings were presented in November at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions. The link between smoking and diabetes is important, she said, because it is very damaging to the body and diabetics can lose limbs or have other complications. It’s also expensive to treat: The estimated medical costs of treating diabetes were $245 billion in 2012. The study statistics show 466 participants were di-

agnosed with new cases of diabetes between 2000 and 2012. Among past smokers and those who smoked less than a pack a day, the rate of new diabetes diagnoses was similar to those who never smoked. But the rate of new cases among smokers who consumed at least a pack a day was 62 percent higher compared to those who never smoked. A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that American Indians and Alaska Natives are much more likely to smoke cigarettes than other race and ethnic groups. Hispanics and Asians have the lowest smoking rates. According to the CDC’s statistics, about 17 percent of whites and Blacks smoke cigarettes. Black men are more likely to smoke than their white peers, but black women are less likely to smoke than white women. A diabetes diagnosis is more common among Black adults than white and Hispanic

adults. “One of the interesting things that we saw was that smoking was associated with increased amounts of fat within the abdomen,” said Michael E. Hall, M.D., a study co-author and an assistant professor of medicine in the division of cardiology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. “Visceral fat was higher in current smokers, and this is what we think is one of the potential mechanisms by which smoking may increase the risk of diabetes.” Hall, a co-investigator on a project under the AHA’s Tobacco Regulation and Addiction Center, added: “Fat within the abdomen has several potential adverse effects which affect glucose. This fat causes alterations in hormones that regulate blood glucose and it may cause more inflammation.” Cardiovascular disease researcher Neha Pagidipati, M.D., said the study is helpful because there’s little information about the link between smoking and diabetes in blacks. “I think this study was important because it looked at a very important and modifiable risk factor in a population that has generally been understudied in terms of cardiovascular risk factors,” said Pagidipati, a cardiology fellow at Duke University’s School of Medicine who was not involved in the study.

The findings, however, don’t definitively show heavy cigarette smoking causes diabetes, she said, and scientists should look deeper into that relationship. “This is an important issue.” White said she would like to see health advocacy groups and federal agencies address the link between smoking and diabetes in education campaigns. She thinks aggressive messages that show the ugly side of smoking are effective. Hall, who has patients who smoke, said doctors should talk to their patients about the smoking-diabetes connection. He said many smokers don’t quit until faced with a major health problem. Raper, a graduate film student, said he’s not worried about the damage smoking has done to his body. “I can’t control when I’m not going to be around. And whether I’m smoking or not smoking,” he said, “I don’t think really it makes much of a difference.” He’s tried quitting, and wants to before his 30th birthday — mainly because he wants to stop spending the $80 to $100 month on his cigarettes. Smoking campaigns generally don’t speak to him because he said scare tactics don’t work on adults. “You can stop kids from starting to smoke,” Raper said. “But getting somebody to quit at an older age is a completely different story.”

MONEY MATTERS

Making money management unmistakable The U.S. consumer is awash in financial information and tools in preparing for their financial future. An Internet search of the words “financial planning” generates millions of Web hits. With all this financial knowhow at Americans’ fingertips, it’s reasonable to believe they are doing the things to put their financial house in order. Right? Wrong. Americans tend to avoid financial goal setting. If they do set goals, they focus on a specific one such as saving for college or retirement. However, they often fail to look at the entire picture, including weaving in their personal values into the equation, which can be critical to building a personalized financial program. A holistic approach to managing your finances links decisions about money with matters of the heart. Another common mistake is making a financial decision without understanding its effect on other financial issues. One’s choices do not oper-

Financial information is out there, and the more Americans can learn about financial matters, the better.

alone, and I'm encouraged by people who challenge themselves time and time again. Resolutions related to finances and health, two important components of everyone's life, are especially common. Here are a few ways that you could tie physical activities to achieving your financial goals. Hopefully being able to tackle both resolutions at once can help keep you motivated for the entire year. 1. Compete with yourself, or others. If you're up for a little friendly competition, consider creating or joining a challenge and putting money on the line. There's an online app that you can use to place a wager on how often you'll work out. At the end of the week, you have to pay your preselected amount for each workout you miss. But if you complete your workouts for the week, you collect a portion of the amount paid out by everyone else. Some people make an arrangement with a friend where you each agree to work out X times a week and

to pay the other person $5 or $10 for each workout missed. Or, you could opt to make a donation to a charity of your friend's choice rather than pay each other. The goal is to provide accountability, and the financial aspect can add a sense of urgency and be a great motivational tool. 2. Connect an activity tracker to rewards programs. Several services give you points each time you work out and let you redeem the points for cash, gift cards or other prizes. The real trick is to use multiple programs and maximize your rewards from every workout. Some employers also provide bonus points to employees that use these programs or have similar rewards programs of their own. 3. Make working out your work. If you're looking to make a serious lifestyle change, and potentially some serious money, consider becoming a personal trainer or fitness instructor. While the certification process can be expensive and time-consuming, afterward you'll be able to charge clients for classes or one-on-one training. Or, you could try to find flexible and active work that suits your interests and experience. Gardener, referee or dog walker could be good fits to supplement your income. 4. Keep exercise-related expenses down. It can be tempting to buy new work(Continued pg. 15)

Similar to the programs that reward you with points, there are apps like Charity Miles that you can use to raise money for your favorite charities while exercising. You could also sign up for a charity walk, run or ride and know that when you cross the finish line you'll be helping a good cause.
