Mrs. Vera LeBlanc celebrates her 98th birthday with parade

Photos by Robert Bell

Just because there is a pandemic going on, and everyone should be staying home, doesn't mean that you can't celebrate your birthday. Though social distancing, Mrs. Vera LeBlanc (left photo, on left) still got to celebrate her 98th on Thursday, July 16, 2020 with a parade in her honor. Vera's friends, family, church family, and members of the North Central Service Club, Inc., lined up in their vehicles and decorated them with balloons, signs and streamers to help celebrate such a wonderful lady.

Vera is a native of Pulaski, Virginia and relocated to Milwaukee more than 70 years ago. For more than 25 years, she worked in the Milwaukee Public School System as a psychological aide. In her free time she devoted herself to community service by mentoring young women. She was also a member of the North Central Service Club, Inc., for 50 years and helped to raise money to provide scholarships for Milwaukee-area high school girls.

Happy 98th Birthday Vera! Northside Rising marches against end of energy assistance and for green jobs On Thursday, July 16, 2020, Northside Rising held a rally seeking divestment from WE Energies (also known as Wisconsin Electric), a waiver of their planned moratorium on energy assistance, and investment in green, net-zero carbon jobs that are not monopolized by the company. Investing more in a climate justice plan, as well as a solution to the depletion of job opportunity for Milwaukee’s Northside, would be a step in the right direction for the city’s Black residents. The rally began at the Victory Garden Park in the Harambee neighborhood. Speakers included Pastor Jonathan Barkan, Supreme Moore Omukunde, Dana Kelly (top left photo), and George Martin of Mil-

waukee 350 (top right photo). Amidst the COVID-19 crisis there are many issues that, while already present before, are being exacerbated because of the material conditions of the pandemic. One of those issues is the high cost of utilities in spite of high unemployment, at levels comparable to those seen during the Great Depression, particularly on Milwaukee’s Northside.

Mayor Barrett and city celebrate completion of 'Fond du Lac Ave. Safety Project' On Wednesday, July 15, 2020, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (left) was joined by Milwaukee Commissioner of Public Works Jeff Polenske (center left); Department of City Development Director Layfayette Crump (center right); and Sherman Phoenix Director of Programing adn Events Jan Anderson (right) to celebrate the completion of the "Fond du Lac Ave. Safety Project." The project was implemented due to a high number of fatal crashes and increased concerns about reckless driving. The plan revamped the sidewalks and medians around the busy three-black stretch of West Fond du Lac Ave., from North 36th to North 38th streets, to better control traffic and make pedestrians more visible to drivers. The plan which started in April and finished around the end of June, provides safer access to the Sherman Phoenix, a collection of small businesses at 3536 W. Fond du Lac Ave. The plan follows the city commitment to 'Complete Streets,' a policy Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett signed into law in 2018.

Donald Trump says he won't attend John Lewis' memorial services

President Donald Trump said Monday, July 27, 2020, he will not be attending memorial services for civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis this week. Lewis will lie in state at the Capitol as part of six days of funeral proceedings, and the public will be allowed to visit later Monday and Tuesday. Lewis died July 17 from pancreatic cancer at 80. "No, I won't be going, no," Trump told reporters when asked if he would pay respects to Lewis Monday or Tuesday at the Capitol. Trump traveled Monday to North Carolina to visit a facility working

on a COVID-19 vaccine and returned in the early evening. Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence paid respects to Lewis as he lay in state Monday evening. Former Vice President

tion against Black Americans during the Civil Rights Movement, was an organizer of the March on Washington and a member of the original Freedom Riders. In 2017, Trump lashed out at Lewis on Twitter, accusing him of being "all talk ... no action or results," after the congressman said he would skip Trump's inauguration. Lewis considered Trump an illegitimate president because of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Joe Biden and Jill Biden also visited the Capitol to honor Lewis Monday. Lewis served in Con“I don’t see this presigress for more than three dent-elect as a legitimate decades and fought against president,” Lewis told NBC's segregation and discrimina-

"Meet the Press" a week before the inauguration in January 2017. "I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected and they have destroyed the candidacy of Hillary Clinton." Lewis also refused to attend events where Trump would be present, including the dedication of a civil rights museum in Mississippi. Trump issued a two-sentence tweet honoring Lewis the day after his death and the White House lowered flags to half-staff.

Wauwatosa Police Officer Joseph Mensah suspended by city’s Police and Fire Commission Wauwatosa Police Officer Joseph Mensah has been suspended by the city’s Police and Fire Commission (PFC). The unanimous vote by five commissioners, done virtually over Zoom because of the pandemic, came as part of a special meeting on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, that accepted administrative charges filed against Mensah by the family of Jay Anderson. “This is not a criminal investigation, this is a hearing on the unemployment status of the officer complained about,” said Alan Kesner, Wauwatosa city attorney. Anderson was shot and killed by Mensah in 2016. He was cleared of criminal wrongdoing in that case. Attorneys for Anderson’s family argue that Mensah violated his law enforcement code, calling for his firing. “We believe that proper protocols, rules and procedures were violated by Officer Mensah,” said Kimberley Motley, attorney for the Anderson family. Mensah has been involved in the shooting deaths of three people in five years. The 2015 fatal shooting of Antonio Gonzalez was ruled

Mensah is on administrative leave, with pay, stemming from an officer-involved shooting death of 17-yearold Alvin Cole earlier this year. That case is still under review by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office. “I’m feeling very good about the outcome, about the decision,” said Tracy Cole, Alvin Cole’s mother. “I’m very pleased, this is just one step.” This suspension by the FPC is on top of that administrative leave, but with pay, as the commission does not have the authority to suspend without pay.

Mensah’s attorney, Jon Cermele, described the process as tainted. “Those public pronouncements certainly taint the ability of this board to act in an impartial, adjudicatory fashion,” Cermele said. The board appointed former U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic as an independent investigator; he is doing the work pro bono. “My goal on this is to be thorough, to move promptly,” said Biskupic. Attorneys for Anderson’s family are also representing the Gonzales and Cole families. Charges have also been submitted to the PFC in those cases.

Get to know Ozell Cox: Republican candidate for the 12th Assembly District of the Wisconsin State Legislature Not long ago lifelong Milwaukee resident Ozell Cox filed to run as a Republican for the 12th Assembly District of the Wisconsin State Legislature, because he believed that his hometown was not providing its residents with sufficient economic opportunities or essential goods and services such as quality grocery stores, department stores, movie theaters and hospitals to mention only a few examples. “I love Milwaukee and I want to see it successful,” he said. “I want to help greatly

Beloved, as I write this, I have declared my independence from fear of rejection, from allowing others' criticism to upset me and my subtle desire to be accepted by everyone. I am reminded of the words of Aristotle: “the only way to avoid criticism is to say nothing, do nothing and be nothing.” I realize, there is an ample supply of haters we all come in contact with who all come from a dark place of negativity, envy, fear and jealousy.

We live in a time of social and economic Darwinism. Only the loudest, most vocal, and opinionated stay afloat with the new realm of social media. Furthermore, the majority of individuals, including myself at this current moment, are barely main-

taining their existence with the small purse they have. Inflated credit card statements, living paycheck to paycheck, or just not finding ways to afford the life they desire, people remain at the bottom of the economic chain perpetuating the endless cycle of be employed, be a consumer, be in debt. Enough is enough! I refuse to succumb to the ease of not aspiring for greatness. Time to eternally adopt Mamba Mentality. Ascending towards both personal soulful fulfillment and financial freedom for generations is the only option. My Declaration of Independence is from all Financial and Social Shackles so that I may inspire

Instead of allowing them to hurt me, I’ve become more confident and comfortable with the gifts, talents and skills God has blessed me with and I am using these gifts, talents and skills to be all that God has called me to be! Certainly, I’m far from perfect, however, the more confident I’ve become, the less influenced I am by other people’s negativity, rejection, envy and jealousy. In fact, criticism and rejection have taught me to always do the others while also living an best I can in everything I’m abundantly wealthy life filled asked to do, give my 100 percent in all things, and give the with love. - MMN rest to God!

The Declaration of Independence severed the 13 American colonies’ ties with Great Britain. The Declaration of Independence committee included: Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston. After 86 changes to the initial draft of the document, which was drafted mostly by Thomas Jefferson; the Second Continental Congress officially adopted the final version of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.1 This month, I have used ‘independence’ as a theme and allowed persons to respond to the prompt: ‘What Do You Want to Declare Independence From?’ I received the most compelling responses. In the last installment of this series, I am presenting a Declaration written by a 28-year old male:

How to be healthier in a tough economy You’ve probably figured out by now that times these days are a little less kind to your wallet. Many people find themselves considering scaling back on things like health insurance and prescriptions in order to better balance their budget. But this is a mistake – no matter how tight money is, you need to take care of your health. Why? Because, ironically, not doing so can actually be the most expensive choice of all. See your doctor regularly Keep up to date on screenings. Mammograms, cholesterol level checks, and colonoscopies can catch serious problems. If medical conditions are caught early, they can be less complicated to treat and, as a result, less expensive. Keeping up with treatment, medication, and healthy habits is especially important if you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, asthma, or heart disease. Why? This can keep your health from getting worse and requiring more costly treatment. Get your shots to prevent illness Vaccines aren’t just for kids. Immunizations can help keep you and your loved ones healthy. Most vaccines are covered by insurance —

and many are affordable without it. Plus, they save you the cost of medical care, treatment, and sick days off work by preventing illness. Talk to your doctor or another medical professional to find out which shots you should get to prevent illness. Cut prescription drug costs Ask your doctor if you could safely split some of your pills. If so, your doctor can prescribe a higher-dose, and have you take 1/2 a pill at a time to save money. Or you may be eligible for drug company “prescription assistance” programs. Shop for low prices. Mail-order pharmacies may offer 3 months worth of a drug for a discounted price. Doctors can sometimes offer free samples. Embrace a healthy lifestyle Healthy habits like eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep can decrease your risk of disease and illness. If you smoke, consider quitting. Overweight? By becoming more active you may help cut your risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis.

Open a flexible spending account (FSA) FSAs cut costs by saving you taxes. Pre-tax money is taken from your pay and put into an account for you to spend on health care not covered by insurance. Put only what you’ll spend on medicine and co-pays in your FSA. Save receipts to prove you’re meeting FSA rules, in case asked. Spend all your FSA money before the year is up. What you don’t use, you lose! Preserve coverage with low-cost plans A “catastrophic” or “high-deductible” insurance plan can be a cheap option if you’re healthy. Bought through your employer or on your own, monthly payments are low. But you and your family may pay $5,000 or more of medical bills out of pocket before insurance pays. Save for emergencies Broken or lost glasses. A

chipped tooth. Emergencies can and do happen. And putting medical bills on high-interest credit cards can bury you in debt. Starting an emergency medical fund can help. Sock away $100 or $200 a month into savings. Most banks will let you set up automatic deposits online. Can’t afford that much? Put aside what you can to help lessen debt from an unexpected bill. Pick only necessary procedures Sometimes you are offered products or procedures that are not medically necessary. Beware the up sell on teeth whitening at the dentist, or new frames from the optometrist, or a neck adjustment at the chiropractor. These often aren’t covered by insurance. Take care of your teeth Get a dental checkup and regular cleanings. It costs about $200 to fill a cavity caught early. Untreated, you may later need a root canal, which can cost $2,000 for the operation and crown. Laid off ? Try COBRA The hitch? Cost. Before, your company likely paid part of your premium. Under COBRA, you pay the whole cost, plus a 2 percent

fee. Laid off since late 2008? Financial help may be available, visit http://www.dol. gov/cobra. Or ask an insurance agent about a short-term individual policy. They can cover you a month at a time and may be cheaper than COBRA. Help when you’re uninsured Community health clinics often offer some health care at reduced cost or for free based on your income. Contact your local health department. If you have a limited income and meet other requirements set by your state, you may be eligible for Medicaid coverage. Find your local Medicaid office at http:// www.benefits.gov. Get the most from doctor’s visits When you do go to the doctor, write down all your questions ahead of time. This can cut down on follow-up visits. Once there, ask your doctor to help you decide which care or procedures are really necessary, and which are elective. Be sure your doctor understands your financial situation. Tell her if you’re thinking of skipping a procedure or dropping a medicine because of cost. She may be able to help you manage your medical care on a budget.

hile eating healthy and enjoying sweets seldom go hand-in-hand, choosing the right combination of nutritious ingredients can allow for guilt-free indulgences that shirks conventional dieting wisdom. In fact, some eating plans take it a step further by actually encouraging eating big in the evening when you’re naturally hungriest to help achieve your weight loss goals. For example, “Always Eat After 7 PM,” written by Joel Marion, CISSN, NSCA-CPT, fivetime best-selling e-book author and co-founder of the e-commerce supplement company BioTrust Nutrition, debunks popular diet myths and offers an easy-to-follow diet that accelerates fatburning and allows you to indulge in your most intense cravings by eating the majority of your calories at night. The outlined plan features a 14-day “acceleration phase” designed for rapid results, a “main phase” when you’ll learn which fat-burning foods to eat to achieve your weight loss goals and a “lifestyle phase” to keep the weight off for good. Conventional wisdom dictates that it’s best to avoid carbs, eat an early dinner and never eat immediately before bed. However, Marion debunks the myths underlying traditional dieting with a simple, highly effective weight loss program allowing readers to enjoy social dinners without restriction, satisfy nighttime hunger with fat-burning sweet and salty pre-bedtime snacks and indulge cravings with strategically timed cheat meals. With straightforward food lists, easy-to-follow meal plans and recipes for each phase, this can be a simpler, more enjoyable way to lose weight without feeling restricted. Taken directly from the book, these recipes for No Bake Salted Caramel Bars, Cherry Garcia Ice Cream and Fruit Tarts can satisfy that sweet tooth before heading to bed.

July 30, 1822 – James Varick becomes first bishop of African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. July 31, 1874 – Patrick Francis Healy inaugurated as president of Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.

A medical research study to learn how to treat patients with a type of prolonged seizures in the emergency department was recently performed in this community. Before the study, doctors didn’t know what medicine worked best. The study showed that three medicines commonly used to treat prolonged seizures all work similarly well, stopping seizures about half the time in both children and adults. The medicines were also similar in safety. These results give doctors more flexibility and confidence when treating patients with prolonged seizures. The researchers thank the community for their support of this emergency research conducted with exception from consent. The study, called the Established Status Epilepticus Treatment Trial, or ESETT, was published in the November 28, 2019 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health. To learn more about the research and the results visit the ESETT website at: www.esett.org
