This Memorial Day we should remember the African Americans who have fought on the frontlines, including in the war against COVID-19 By William S. Gooden Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to pay tribute to veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. Traditionally, this holiday is reserved for those who fought for our country in foreign wars. However, this year I think we could add a new type of soldier to honor. It is the soldier who is fighting a war currently, right here on our own home soil, the COVID-19 front line worker. The COVID-19 virus is a foreign invader that has ravaged multiple countries causing death by the thousands wherever it goes. Here in the U.S., it has hit many African American communities the hardest, with many of the fatalities coming in urban areas. Milwaukee is

Wisconsin’s largest city, with about 600,000 people, and is home to the state’s largest minority population. As of 2018, black people accounted for about 38 percent of the city’s population, with about 35 percent white and 20 percent Hispanic. About half of Wisconsin’s deaths and total cases were in Milwaukee. About 28 percent of those who have died from the coronavirus in Milwaukee County were black. Many of those deaths came from the inner city, as the black community started looking for treatment and testing and have turned to the local community health clinics. Many of the nurses, lab technicians and doctors who are currently on the front lines also are people of color.

for us so that we can return to our carefree lives and enjoy the things that we are use to once more. Many are still going to their jobs at our community clinics and are still providing much-needed medical services in our comunity, including pharmacy and dental services as well as COVID-19 testing.

While soldiers who fought in wars donned camouflage, bullet-proof vests, and fought with guns, our doctors and nurses have donned smocks and masks, and fought the virus with medical skill and human kindness. Like soldiers going off to war, they have separated themselves from their families to protect them and serve their loved ones and others whom they have never met. They are fighting

St. Ann Center helps Milwaukee Mask-Up!

St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care-Bucyrus Campus, 2450 W. North Ave., doubled as a mini mask-making factory on Wednesday, May 13, 2020. Staff members joined forces to make 700 masks, addressing the urgent need to stem the spread of COVID-19. Staffers volunteered as part of the MaskUpMke challenge to create 3.5 million homemade non-surgical masks for healthcare providers and other essential

service providers in Southeastern Wisconsin. St. Ann Center, an all-ages day care that serves children, frail elders and adults with disabilities, is temporarily closed as a precautionary measure prompted by the novel coronavirus pandemic. The center’s teachers, nursing assistants and administrators spread out in two large adult day care rooms. “We see this as an important way we can give back to our community and the entire Great-

er Milwaukee Community,” said Chief Operating Officer Diane Beckley. The Bucyrus Campus’ north side neighborhood was particularly hard hit by the virus. St. Ann Center partnered in this effort with United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County and other nonprofits, businesses and foundations. Others include the Milwaukee Bucks, Medical College of Wisconsin, Greater Milwaukee Foundation, Zilber Family Foundation, Ignite Change, Fiserv Forum, Habitat for Humanity and Saukville manufacturer Rebel Converting. After learning of the shortage of masks nationwide and how it was affecting Milwaukee, Thaddeus Kryshak, a recent graduate in engineering and physics, spoke to his father Mike, owner of Rebel Converting about how they might be able to make face masks using the materials they were already using to produce hospital-grade

Thaddeus then developed a way to convert the same material used to manufacture hospital-grade disinfectant wipes into face masks that volunteers could easily assemble. Initially, the mask kits were designed to be taken home and assembled by individual families. “I convinced United Way that St. Ann Center is a family,” Beckley said. “We have plenty of space for social distancing—so each of our volunteers had an entire table as a work station.”

After a 72-hour quarantine period, the face coverings will be distributed to the community under the guidance of the Medical College of Milwaukee. Beckley is also a member of Milwaukee’s Stronger Together Collective, a group formed to get information about the pandemic out to the African American community. “The mask-making project dovetails perfectly with this effort,” Beckley said.

said in a release. “Our statewide approach to containing the spread of COVID-19 will continue with robust testing and contact tracing efforts in all corners of Wisconsin, resources that ensure our critical workers have the equipment they need to do their jobs safely, and direct

investments in local communities and health providers. Wisconsin’s Safer At Home order may have ended, but our all-out war on this virus has not.” Wisconsin will use $260 million of the $1.17 billion for testing and $75 million for contact tracing.

“Our public health experts continue to recommend that folks stay home as much as possible, limit travel, wear a face mask in public, and practice good hygiene,” Evers said. “I also urge anyone who needs a test to go get tested at one of our community testing sites and help protect your community and family from this virus.” The state can now process 13,000 coronavirus tests per day at 52 labs. Tests are available for free for all Wisconsinites. The National Guard is operating 25 testing sites across the state, including two in Milwaukee – Midtown Shopping Center at N. 57th St. and W. Capitol Drive, and the UMOS Building at 2701 S. Chase Ave.

Evers said the money will be used for coronavirus testing, contact tracking, emergency operations, buying medical supplies and for local governments. The money was supplied by the federal government's $2 trillion CARES Act, which was signed into law by President Donald Trump at the end of March. “As I’ve said before, regardless of the political overtones of the past week, we still know what we need to do to box in this virus and help keep people safe,” Evers

ALS Awareness Month - #ALSAwareness (Week 2)

This month’s focus is on ALS Awareness. I noted in last week’s article that awareness days, weeks and months are helpful as they heighten awareness around a specific cause, start conversations and have spurred charity events and information campaigns. Awareness months also provide the community with opportunities to participate via support for a cause one is passionate about.

What is ALS? According to the ALS Association, ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, was first discovered in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that New York Yankees first-baseman Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the

body. The progressive weakening and wasting of the motor neurons by ALS eventually leads to death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. This week, I will begin presenting the 5 Myths about ALS1 which were identified by the ALS Association. The balance of the myths will be presented in next week’s article.

with ALS have no family history of the disease. About 90 percent of ALS cases are sporadic, meaning the cause or causes are unknown. The remaining 10 percent of ALS cases are familial and inherited through a mutated gene. In those families, there is a 50 percent chance that each offspring will inherit the gene mutation and may develop the disease.

Myth #2: Only older people are affected by ALS. Most people who develop ALS are between the ages of 40 and 70, with an average onset of 55. But there are many cases of people Myth #1: ALS is strict- in their twenties and thirties ly hereditary. In reality, the who have been diagnosed majority of people diagnosed with ALS. This “young on-

Myth #3: ALS does not affect brain function. While not common, approximately 20 percent of individuals with ALS also develop frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), which is characterized by changes in personality, behavior and speech. Another rare form of ALS, known as ALS-parkinsonism-dementia complex (ALS-PDC) is characterized by signs and symptoms of ALS in addition to movement abnormalities (slow movements, stiffness and tremors) and loss of intellectual function. Cognitive and behavioral impairment in ALS can vary widely from individual to individual. Some people with ALS develops a symptom called “pseudobulbar affect.” They may cry or laugh at inappropriate times; or notice how once they start feeling an emotion, it is difficult to suppress it and not express it. Pseudobulbar affect is common in ALS and is the result of a brain reflex no longer working correctly. People with ALS can have

pseudobulbar affect and no other cognitive, behavioral, or psychological symptoms.

Magic Johnson offers $100 million in loans to minority businesses Former Los Angeles Lakers guard and team president Earvin “Magic” Johnson announced his life insurance company will provide $100 million for women- and minority-owned small businesses as part of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Johnson, the owner of EquiTrust, the nation’s largest minority-owned insurance company, will partner with MBE Capital Partners, a Latino-owned company, to provide supply chain finance solutions for Fortune 500 companies and their suppliers. According to Forbes, John-

son was motivated after hearing reports of minorityand women-owned businesses being shut out of the PPP. At the same time, Johnson discovered the Lakers organization applied for and received $4.6 million from the program. The Lakers, worth an estimated $4.6 billion, returned the money after public pressure. “We knew why the money was gone and couldn’t trickle down to small businesses, especially small minority businesses, because they didn’t have those great relationships with the banks,” Johnson told the Wall Street Jour-

nal. “So this was easy for us to understand.” MBE’s Chief Executive, Rafael Martinez, said he received complaints from cli-

ents who couldn’t get loans from the PPP’s first round of funding. It was later reported that large banks prioritized existing relationships and large corporations before focusing on smaller and minority businesses. According to the Center for Responsible Lending, up to 90 percent of businesses owned by people of color have been, or will likely be, shut out of the PPP program. Martinez and Johnson also announced the partnership on MSNBC’s Politics Nation with Al Sharpton. MBE Capital is designed to

help small and diverse businesses take advantage of this latest round of PPP funding. The company can process up to 5,000 loans per day, utilizing end-to-end online technology to accept, underwrite, and transmit the applications to the SBA. After feeling ignored in the first round of PPP loans, African American-owned banks and businesses have found ways to team up to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Those interested in applying for the loans from EquiTrust and MBE Capital can apply https://www.mbecp. com.

The hotel industry, like so many others, is doing everything it can to stay viable during the COVID-19 pandemic In Milwaukee, hotels like the Iron Horse, Potowatomi and the Pfister, all closed early on in the pandemic. They're not alone. Trish Pugal, interim CEO of the Wisconsin Hotel and Lodging Association said at the start of the pandemic, 18,000 hotel and lodging employees were furloughed. She said that number likely has increased significantly. "Approximately 40 percent to 45 percent of the lodging properties around the state have actually closed, even though we are designated an essential business," Pugal said. "Those that have stayed open, for example, for other essential business workers, for first responders, if they

get double-digit occupancy, they're doing better than most." Pugal said it is difficult to say for sure how many, if any, hotels will have to close permanently from the financial stress the pandemic caused. "Certainly, looking at the financial challenges at this point, it's hard to predict where, when, what number, anything like that. It depends on how long it takes for some of the travel to increase," Pugal said. According to a survey done by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA), nearly nine out of 10 hotels have laid off or furloughed staff during the pandemic.

The survey said many hotels don't expect to return to pre-COVID staffing until 2021. At the Iron Horse Hotel, management said they have been closed since March 21 and are now bringing back some furloughed employees to prepare to reopen on June 1. "We decided it was in the best interest of our staff and also of our guests for us to close our doors and really focus on cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting, making sure that our spaces were absolutely sparkling clean," said Jordan Dechambre, director of lifestyle at the Iron Horse Hotel. "So that when we opened up on June 1, we would be

a wonderful place for people to call their home away from home." Dechambre said they plan on implementing a number of different measures to help keep their employees and hotel guests safe. "We're looking at testing (employees') temperatures when they come through the door in the morning. If anyone has a fever, they will not be allowed in the building. If (an employee) is showing signs of COVID-19, they are not to come to work," Dechambre said. "We have some branded Iron Horse Hotel face masks they'll be wearing at the hotel, so they can feel really safe when they're here and guests can also feel safe." In response to the pandemic and hotels slowly reopening, the AHLA released enhanced industry-wide ho-

tel cleaning standards. "We're really making sure our hotel is properly socially distanced," Dechambre said. "So when looking at our lobby, we're making sure everything has plenty of room in between where people might be sitting. We're also reviewing signage throughout our hotel, really reminding people to wash their hands, to be careful, to not touch their faces, to not have more than two people in an elevator at a time and then also looking at things down the road like looking at all-digital menus." The standards include guidance on hand washing and hand sanitizer usage, COVID-19 training and personal protective equipment for employees, and cleaning of rooms and public spaces.
