Milwaukee Common Council approves mask mandate, Mayor signs ordinance into effect

Mandate would require face masks indoors and outdoors if you're within 6 feet of another person The full Milwaukee Common Council voted 15-0 Monday, July 13, 2020 to approve Milwaukee’s proposed mask mandate ordinance — passed by the Milwaukee Common Council’s Public Safety and Health Committee Thursday, July 9. It now heads to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s desk for his signature. Some major modifications were made to the proposal leading up to Thursday’s committee vote. More than 600 people submitted a comment to the Public Safety and Health Committee, and just 26 more people supported

the proposal than opposed it, similar to what FOX6 News heard along Milwaukee’s lakefront Sunday, on the eve of the full council’s vote. The committee vote Thursday was three yes, one no and

one abstained. Thursday’s special meeting of the committee was held to discuss the “MKE Cares” Milwaukee mask mandate following “extensive input from members of the community,” Alder-

woman Marina Dimitrijevic, who introduced the ordinance, said in a news release. Dimitrijevic noted since being introduced, MKE Cares has received diverse support from local small businesses, thousands of residents via a change.org petition, local health care providers, VISIT Milwaukee, The Milwaukee Area Labor Council and United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County, among others. The MKE Cares ordinance requires masks for everyone three and older when inside buildings open to the public, and outside when within six

feet of someone who is not a family member or member of your household. Some said they believe the outdoor requirement goes too far — including Alderman Mark Borkowski, who was the only committee member to vote against sending the proposal to the full council. Borkowski raised concerns involving neighborhoods that border other municipalities — and also, whether the policy would hold up in court if challenged. (Continued on pg. 2)

Being Frank

  By: Frank James Special to the Milwaukee Times

Who are the guns for? African Americans have been pushed and beaten to the brink of mental collapse in the USA. It’s only natural that African Americans seek some form of protection to ensure their safety in an unsafe environment. Since the George Floyd killing African Americans seem to have found a safety measure. Many African Americans have turned to the Caucasian’s old weapon of choice, the gun. Who will these African American guns be used on? Guns have been in the African American community since 1865. The atrocities that have taken place in 2020 have driven African Americans to purchase weapons at an alarming rate. National African American Gun Association (NAAGA) membership has boomed in the past few months. My guess is since the NAACP wasn’t getting the job done someone created a gun club to attempt the task. There are some people who feel the rise of NAAGA and African American gun interest as a whole took off with the election of President Trump. That may be true but let’s be honest. Who are African

Americans really buying the guns to protect against? If you said other African American, come on down. I get the concept behind the idea of seeking salvation via guns by African Americans. In their adopted country African Americans have never felt safe. Events in 2020 have opened many comfortable African American’s eyes to the fact that they reside in a war zone. But, who really is the terror behind the crime and violence in the African American community? Ironically when violence jumps off in the African American community the first people called, after Shaniqua, are the police. So this myth of

buying 9mm and semi-automatic weapons for a war against the powers that be is a lie. Or maybe that is what African Americans are telling themselves when they purchase guns and rifles. Maybe the lie of protection against whites and police enables African Americans to purchase guns that may be used on each other with a clear conscience. I recently went into a gun shop with a friend. I was shocked by the number of African Americans in the store buying guns. The man behind the counter was passing assault rifles out like word had come down that the US had been invaded

and foreign troops were two blocks over. The appalling part of this scene was the obvious lack of intelligence I observed by the customers. I taught SPED for years and was good at it. One of the tasks I performed was identifying students who had learning disabilities. In that store 99 percent of the African Americans who were purchasing weapons looked mentally challenged. Of course the man behind the counter was white and he was encouraging the African Americans to buy. Do you think this white man would have been doing this if he thought for a second African Americans were about to wage war on whites? The scene was past ridiculous. In the parking lot one African American male pulled his assault rifle out and was showing it off to a group of African Americans. Does this seem like a person with good sense? What nationality do you think is most likely to be on the business end of this Negro's rifle? Guns may have assisted African Americans to put up a good fight in the 1900’s but not in 2020. I stated before that guns were the Cauca-

sian’s old weapon of choice. If anyone thinks that guns will overcome or do anything but get African Americans slaughtered they are a fool. The technology that Caucasians have makes Star Wars technology look like Neanderthal drawings on a cave wall. Stop this foolish nonsense about African Americans protecting themselves from police and racist groups terrorizing their community. The guns that African Americans are buying have a good chance of being used on other African Americans. Be honest, African Americans. Admit that you are buying the gun to protect you and yours from other African Americans. Once this is done, have at it.

Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation commits additional $3-million in COVID-19 relief support to 'South LA Forward' collaboration

The Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation (OWCF) announced on Monday, July 13, 2020, a $3-million donation to South LA Forward, a newly created coalition of three Los Angeles based grassroot organizations - SoLa I Can Foundation, SEE-LA, and the Watts Healthcare Corporation. This OWCF donation is in addition to the previously announced $12-million donation to COVID-19 related relief efforts in Oprah's "home cities" of Chicago, Nashville, Milwaukee, and Kosciusko, Mississippi. Winfrey reached out to community organizations to best support South Los Angeles during the pandemic and beyond, and helped institute a collaboration created

to address the urgent needs of the community including food insecurity, access to healthcare and economic disparity. South LA Forward was established and committed to providing 200 tons of fresh food to feed 80,000 Angelenos, 200 scholarships to those who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic, and expanded COVID-19 testing and primary care for South LA residents.

Did you know on July 8, 1776, the first public readings of the Declaration were held in Philadelphia’s Independence Square to the ringing of bells and band music? A year later, on July 4, 1777, Philadelphia marked Independence Day by adjourning Congress and celebrating with bonfires, bells and fireworks. Now Independence Day is celebrated as one of our major summer holidays.1 A catalyst that was a link in the chain of events leading to the move for independence of the 13 colonies from Great Britain was Parliament deciding to tax its American colonies. Colonial assemblies denounced the law claiming the tax was illegal and burdensome on the grounds that they had no representation in Parliament, leading to the creation of the slogan, “no taxation without representation.” What is burdening you that you want to declare independence from? That’s the theme of this month’s series and the question posed to a handful of persons.

“Second wave” of coronavirus: what is it and how long will it last? As Americans continue to try and manage life while fighting off the coronavirus, one question is on a lot of people’s minds: Are we already seeing, or will we eventually see, a second wave of the virus? Most public health experts have said they anticipate a big uptick to happen this fall and winter. The White House has admitted it’s preparing for the possibility. However, part of that prediction was based on the assumption that the virus would slow down over the summer, and that doesn’t appear to be happening. Much of the attention aimed at fall has now shifted to concern over the possibility of two potentially lethal viruses circulating at the same time — COVID-19 and the seasonal flu, the latter of which kills around 40,000 people in the US per year. Because of certain overlapping symptoms such as fever and a cough, it may be hard for individuals and doctors to immediately determine which infection you have. Experts say there’s no official definition of when a “wave” begins or ends but, generally speaking, it pretty much acts like a wave: There’s a spike and then it goes down. A new rise and peak of positive cases would signal the start of another

wave. “It is probably not realistic for the number of new cases to drop to zero, but ideally one would like to see sustained decreases in the number of new cases over time or stability in the number of new cases over time,” said Nicole Gatto, an associate professor in the School of Community and Global Health at Claremont Graduate University in California. Disease expert Dr. Fauci has a more definitive answer. “We are still knee-deep in the first wave of this [pandemic],” Fauci said during a July 6 interview on Facebook Live. “And I would say, this [recent uptick in cases] would not be considered a wave. It was a surge, or a resurgence of infections.” The first wave will end when the rate of positive coronavirus tests drops to “the low single digits,” Fau-

ci said in June. Instead, new cases declined modestly, then plateaued through most of May before starting to spike again in late June, never quite getting low enough. Basically, you can’t have a second wave until cases and deaths from the first wave drop close to zero for a sustained period of time. If cases spike again after that point, that’s a bona fide second wave. One bright side is that the number of deaths hasn’t gone up as the number of cases have. South Korean officials, for example, have declared the country is experiencing a second wave as case numbers have begun to surge again after about two months of single-digit infection rates. However, while the World Health Organization has acknowledged the seriousness of these new clusters of cases, the WHO has stopped

short of calling it a “second wave.” As state reopenings take place across the country, more than 20 states are reporting steady increases in new COVID-19 cases on a daily basis, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. On June 30, U.S. officials broke another record by reporting more than 48,000 new COVID-19 cases across the country, the highest single-day increase thus far. So, if you’re in a state that is still seeing an increase in cases, “it would not be accurate to talk about a second wave,” Gatto said. “What causes those peaks, and whether or not there will be more than one peak, as opposed to one continuous wave, will be human behavior and how humans react to what is going on around them.” According to Kaiser Health News, there were at least three distinct waves of influenza in 1918 and 1919, which killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide. The pandemic was simultaneous with World War I, and the war is believed to have spread the virus around the globe more quickly than it otherwise would have. The first wave began in March 1918 and eased by the summer. The second wave

came in the fall, followed by a third wave during the winter and spring of 1919. So what does that mean for us now? We’ve got to do our part. That’s what that all this means. State health departments are continuing to pass recommendations onto businesses that are reopening, but experts say it’s crucial for people to exercise best practices while out in public. If you do choose to visit non-essential businesses, remember the following: Physical distancing: Maintain a 6-foot distance between yourself and all those who do not live with you currently. Face masks: You should be wearing them when you are outside the home in public spaces, per current CDC guidelines. Frequent hand washing and sanitation: Be sure to wash your hands before touching your face, and use hand sanitizer when a sink isn’t available. While you may not feel sick personally, remember to reduce the number and length of exposure to people in closed spaces while keeping a safe distance is very important to keeping others healthy as well.

SENIOR LIVING

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Milwaukee Times Weekly Newspaper

Want to spend your senior years at home? Here's how to do it Don't let anyone tell you that moving to a retirement home is mandatory.

For 30 Years, Pat Weis has called the Bay Indies community in Venice, Florida, home. It’s where she lived with her husband until his death three years ago and where she currently resides with a friend. Now 80, Weis has no plans to leave her house anytime soon. “I’ve been here 30 years and enjoyed every bit of it,” Weis says. “I’ve had no second thoughts [about staying].” Weis is among the seniors who are “aging in place” or who are “active aging,” as David Inns, CEO of senior living solutions provider GreatCall, prefers to say. “We don’t like to use the term ‘aging in place.’” He worries it gives the impression of seniors passively living out their days on the couch. Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, head of care for in-home services provider Honor, argues there is no reason even seniors who need extensive care can’t stay in their house. “People fundamentally want to remain in their homes,” she says, “and we figure out how to do that with joy, comfort and grace.” Here are three keys to staying in your home and actively aging: 1. Create a safe environment in your house. Seniors who want to re-

main in their homes as they get older may find they need to make adjustments to their current living arrangements. While some people choose to renovate their house to make it more accessible, Ellis-Lamkins says small changes can be just as useful. She recommends seniors and their families consider the following: • Remove tripping hazards like throw rugs. • Adjust toilet seats to be higher. • Install grab bars in the bathroom. • Relocate the bedroom to the main level of a house. • Move a mailbox from the curb to the door, if possible. • Switch to smaller, more easily maneuverable trash bins. Ellis-Lamkins adds that some of the biggest hazards may be easily overlooked. “The reason people often fall is because of shoes and toenails,” she says. Selecting shoes that fit well with adequate traction and keeping toenails clipped so they don’t snag on rugs are simple ways to prevent falls and keep seniors safe at home. 2. Be realistic and open about needed services. At a certain point, seniors may find they need extra help with daily living tasks

or maintaining their home. That’s when the vast number of senior service providers can come in handy. “Part of what we do in people’s homes is an assessment to determine their needs,” Ellis-Lamkins says. Depending on the results of that assessment, arrangements may be made for meal delivery, transportation, in-home care or other services. At a certain point, seniors may find they need extra help with daily living tasks or maintaining their home. That’s when the vast number of senior service providers can come in handy. “Part of what we do in people’s homes is an assessment to determine their needs,” Ellis-Lamkins says. Depending on the results of that as-

sessment, arrangements may be made for meal delivery, transportation, in-home care or other services. Getting family members on board with the idea of a senior staying in their current home can be a challenge sometimes. However, services are available for that as well. Everything from mobile devices to sensors can be used to not only improve the quality of life for seniors but also provide peace of mind to caregivers, Inns says. “Technology is really something underleveraged,” Inns says. While some families may overlook their potential, today’s apps, phones and other devices can be used to monitor a senior’s vital signs, detect falls and track movement and meals. 3. Stay active and engaged. Although improving home safety and using available services is important, Weis says her advice to seniors hoping to stay in their homes is to remain active. “The most important thing is to stay positive, to join in and do things,” she says. At her community, Weis has plenty of friends and activity options. That’s one reason she declined her daughter’s suggestion to move north. “Going to another place where you don’t know anyone?” she says of her re-

sponse to the idea. Seniors who don’t live in a community where activities are arranged may find the same engagement by volunteering for a favorite nonprofit organization, joining senior groups or becoming involved at a place of worship. Homebound seniors can use companionship services, like those arranged by Honor, or technology to connect with family members or play games designed to improve mental focus. GreatCall offers wearable devices that encourage seniors to stay active and engaged by issuing daily challenges. At the same time, family members and caregivers can check in on their loved one’s activity at any time. “They can see that mom has been exercising or that she made it to her doctor appointment,” Inns says. There’s no place like home if it meets your needs By making minor changes to a home, utilizing available resources and maintaining social connections, experts say there is no reason seniors can’t stay in their homes as they get older. “It’s transformative for people to own the aging process,” Ellis-Lamkins says, and living in their own house is one way many people are doing just that.

FAMILY FEATURES

hen temperatures soar this summer, many American families may be seeking a break from the monotony of their everyday routines. To make the most of the extra time at home, firing up the grill can be a simple solution for relatively quick food preparation that also allows for spending time with loved ones in the comfort of your own backyard. A gas grill provides families flexibility for preparing everything from a casual meal of burgers and hot dogs to an upscale surf and turf menu. You can prepare virtually every course on the grill, including protein, veggies, sides and even fruits like pineapple or watermelon. Whether you are grilling for the first time or the first time in a long while, above all, play it safe during your next cookout.

Transporting Propane Cylinders

Unless your grill connects directly into your home’s propane system, you’re likely to use a standard 20-pound propane cylinder to fuel your grill. When transporting a propane cylinder, place it in the vehicle securely and upright so it can’t fall, shift or roll. Avoid leaving a propane cylinder in a hot vehicle; always head straight to your destination and remove the cylinder when you arrive.

Lighting Your Gas Grill

Propane gas grills are popular because they provide fast, efficient heat for grilling. To safely operate your gas grill, consider these tips from the Propane Education & Research Council. n

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Whether it’s assembly, use, maintenance, cleaning or storage, make your grill manufacturer’s instructions your go-to resource for safe grilling.

n

Position the grill in a safe location. Keep your grill outdoors and away from the house based on the recommendations of the equipment manufacturer. Choose a level surface that is clear of outdoor furniture, overhead trees or other potential fire hazards.

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

n

Verify the grill is off. All knobs and switches should be turned to the off position before you attempt to attach or replace a propane cylinder.

n

Ensure a tight connection. When attaching the propane hose to the fitting on your grill, be cautious of cross-threading. Keep twisting by hand until the hose and fitting are as tightly sealed as possible to minimize the chance of leaks.

n

Check for leaks. Use a leak detector solution or soapy water solution to check connections for leaks. Slowly open the cylinder valve and watch for bubbles, which indicate a leak. If bubbles appear, close the valve, tighten the connection and check again. Follow this procedure every time you replace a cylinder.

n

Follow proper lighting procedures. Follow the manufacturer’s lighting instructions to generate a flame. Regardless of the grill model, keep the lid open and avoid leaning over the grill when lighting it.

n

Follow proper relighting procedures. If your flame goes out, turn off the gas and refer to your owner’s manual. At a minimum, keep the lid open and wait at least 15 minutes before relighting.

n

Be present. Stay close and never leave your grill unattended.

Storing Propane Cylinders

Your propane cylinder can remain attached to the grill when not in use, but if you have extra cylinders that are not in use, it’s important to store them safely and properly. Never store a small cylinder inside; it should always be kept outside, never in an enclosed area like a basement, garage, shed or tent. Choose a location away from potential heat sources over 120 F, such as a stove or fireplace. Never store extra cylinders near the grill. Keep ignition sources away from the area while handling or transporting a propane cylinder.

Meal Times

Just like an indoor gas range, propane grills give you instant on-off convenience and precision temperature control for perfectly done meals. With no coals, soot or ash, cleanup is a breeze, too. Propane grills come in a variety of sizes and styles, with different perks like side burners for sauces and even rotisserie features. First, consider your budget and what size grill will reasonably fit your space. Then determine which features are essential, as well as what extras might make your grilling experience more enjoyable. When you’re ready to browse, remember the more burners a grill has, the more you can cook in different temperature zones so you can perfectly grill fish, burgers and corn simultaneously, for example. For a large family, getting a larger grill allows you to put all the food on the table at once rather than grilling in batches.

Find more tips for grilling safely this summer at propane.com.

When most people think of propane cylinders, the allpopular gas grill comes to mind. However, propane can fuel many other aspects of your outdoor living space. Full outdoor kitchens, patio heaters, fire pits and flame lighting are all examples of propanepowered outdoor products that can keep the fun going well into the night. In addition, pools and spas can heat quickly and efficiently using propane heat.

Spotlight on Community Leadership

Milwaukee Times Weekly Newspaper

MHS alum and Harvard grad Miles Weddle creates Stand in Solidarity Fund By Genna Batson Ever since George Floyd was murdered by a police officer on May 25, 2020 there has been a global outpouring of support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and ongoing protests against police brutality. There has also been a widespread disruption of content across Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Instead of sharing selfies and food pictures, much of Gen-Z have been dedicating their digital real estate to amplifying Black voices and sharing a plethora of resources including educational infographics about systemic racism and the prison industrial complex, petitions to sign, countless funds to support, and extensive anti-racism reading and watch lists. As the most tech-savvy generation, Gen-Z have collectively overthrown the social media ‘norms’ in order to show their support for Black Lives Matter and spread awareness. Perhaps for the first time since its creation, people are beginning to use social media to its best and fullest potential – as a tool to educate and create real social change. From social media activism to showing up to protests – Gen-Z’s experiences have become an important bridge of information between generations. Montclair, NJ resident Miles Weddle (Montclair High School alumnus and 2020 Harvard grad) is one of the Gen-Zers taking the initiative to spark action among his own network. Miles recently put together a fund to match donations up to $10,000 to be split evenly between four criminal justice organizations – The Equal Justice Initiative, The Innocence Project, The National Bail Fund Network, and the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund. Before announcing the matching fund, Miles published a letter which first appeared on Instagram, sharing his own thoughts and feelings about being a Black man in America, and his response to the recent tragic murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and Tony McDade. He then created Stand in Solidarity, a compilation of resources with representatives to contact, petitions to sign, books to read, organizations to support, mental health resources for the Black community, and a variety of Black-owned businesses to support in the New York/New Jersey area.

Miles Weddle is the grandson Nellie Weddle who is the Executive Director/Founder of NORI, Inc., also a 1999 Black Excellence honoree, and Willie Weddle who was a longtime businessman and owner of Club Deville; and the son of Steven Weddle. Managing Director Head of the North American Investments (NAI) East Team in the Asset Management Division of J.P. Morgan and the Milwaukee Times 2019 Black Excellence Awards keynote speaker. The Stand in Solidarity Fund is the most recent addition to his website, which has raised $2,642.40 as of June 15th. I spoke with Miles recently to learn more about his Stand in Solidarity project. Q: How did your time spent at MHS influence your activism? A: In all honesty, I probably was not as involved as my peers in activism at MHS. I think the diversity of MHS is what lends itself to an actual exploration of the myriad of different socio-political topics that are present in this country. I attended three high schools: a year at Newark Academy, two and a half years at MHS, and half a year at The School for Ethics and Global Leadership in Washington, DC. Collectively, those different experiences gave me a platform as well as people that I could reach out to in order to feel comfortable to be an “activist.” Regarding MHS specifically, the general diversity of the school is what gave me the foresight or at the very least, introductions, to narratives other than my own to consider creating platforms in order to highlight those narratives. Q: Would you say you became more of an activist in college? A: I don’t know if I would characterize myself as an activist. The events that have taken place thus far are so horrific that I personally felt compelled to share my narrative. Certainly, some of it has

An NCON Communications Publication

been as a result of college because classes I’ve taken with Cornell West, Roberto Unger, and Elizabeth Hinton have pushed activism to the forefront of my mind. Q: What inspired you to create a matching fund? A: It was largely wanting to get more people involved. By nature of growing up in Montclair, attending Harvard, and the connections I had made interning at JP Morgan, I had a network that could put together a pool of $10,000 in matching funds. I felt it would also serve as an impetus for my network to actually donate and contribute to the cause. On the other end, the matching fund would serve as a way of motivating kids like us, or people that were sitting on the fence about which funds to donate to, or those that thought their contribution wouldn’t necessarily go a long way. Q: Why did you choose to support these four organizations (The EJI, The Innocence Project, The NAACP LDF, and The National Bail Fund Network)? A: If you look at EJI, the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, or the Innocence Project, they all have the mission of helping those who are currently being assailed by racial injustice in this country, but they also research and advocate for long-term structural reform. Each of them is somewhat involved with criminal justice reform which has been

more of a key topic since Michelle Alexander’s publication of The New Jim Crow. The prison system is an $87 billion industry. There are 2.2 million people incarcerated in the U.S. The National Bail Fund Network is trying to assist the 700,000 people in U.S. jails that haven’t been convicted of a crime, but can’t post bail. In the context of picking these non-profits, there was a huge emphasis on one of the major issues facing Blacks in America – the criminal justice system. Also, if you look at the longrun history of these organizations, they have a very good track record, which is important to me as well. Q: Are you still looking for donors to match donations? A: Yes, I am still looking for individuals to donate to these organizations so we can use the full matching pool of $10,000 to double the impact. I am hoping that this will serve as a long-term project in the sense that we’re able to get more people involved. Q: Do you have any other thoughts you’d like to share? A: I’m excited about making sure this isn’t just a singular moment in history, but something that we’re all continuing to work on. I think we as a society cannot look for a quick fix because there isn’t one. It’s going to require every single one of us, including myself, educating

ourselves on the history of race in this country. It’s not just an issue in the United States, it’s a global issue. To understand the intricacies of not only what’s going on in the U.S. but also abroad, it’s going to require all of us going that extra mile – reading more and having more conversations. How to Contribute to the Stand in Solidarity Fund: 1. Make a donation directly to the Equal Justice Initiative, Innocence Project, National Bail Fund Network, or the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational fund by visiting their websites. • The Equal Justice Initiative • The Innocence Project • The National Bail Fund Network • The NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund After you donate, you will receive an email confirmation with your receipt – take a screenshot of your receipt. 2. Visit the Matching Fund website here to submit your donation for matching and upload an image of your receipt. 3. Fill out the form Submit Your Donation for Matching to have your donations matched. Please note that you can only submit one receipt at a time. 4. Repeat this process for each organization, and spread the word!
