Milwaukee Brewers clinch division title

Photo by Yvonne Kemp

What has been inevitable for weeks is now official: the Milwaukee Brewers are the 2021 National League Central Division champions. The Brewers clinched the Division title Sunday, September 26, 2021, with their 8-4 win over the New York Mets. Milwaukee had already clinched a postseason spot last week, though now the club knows it will avoid the win-or-go-home Wild Card Game. The Brewers had been in sole possession of first place in the NL Central since June 23, two games into an 11-game winning streak. Milwaukee clinched the division in front of an announced sellout crowd of 43,430 at American Family Field. The Brewers last won the NL Central in 2018, when they beat the Chicago Cubs in a Game 163 tiebreaker to clinch the division. This is only Milwaukee's third division title since moving from the American League Central to the NL Central in 1998. They also won the division in 2011 and 2018. The Brewers also won two division titles during their time in the AL East (1981 and 1982).

R. Kelly found guilty on all counts in sex-trafficking trial, faces decades in prison After decades of sexual abuse allegations, R. Kelly has been held legally accountable for the first time. The 54-year-old R&B singer was found guilty on all counts with a Brooklyn, NY jury of seven men and five women returning the verdict on Monday, September 27, 2021, after less than two full days of deliberations. Kelly was found guilty on one count of racketeering and eight counts of violating the Mann Act, an interstate anti-sex trafficking law. He stood accused of sexual exploitation of a child, bribery and kidnapping, among other disturbing crimes. According to the New York Times, the "I Believe I Can Fly" crooner "sat motionless in the courtroom" when the verdict was read. He wore a mask in court due to COVID-19 safety protocols. An attorney for Kelly said they are "disappointed" in the verdict. "Today's guilty verdict forever brands R. Kelly as a predator who used his fame

and fortune to prey on the young, the vulnerable and the voiceless for his own sexual gratification," Jacquelyn M. Kasulis, acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said in a statement. "A predator who used his inner circle to ensnare underage girls and young men and women for decades in a sordid web of sex abuse, exploitation and humiliation. To the victims in this case, your voices were heard, and justice was finally served. We hope that today's

verdict brings some measure of comfort and closure to the victims." The singer, who has long denied misconduct allegations against him, was accused of sexually abusing women, girls and boys. Prosecutors argued Kelly "used lies, manipulation, threats and physical abuse to dominate his victims" and that his inner circle "served as enablers for his criminal conduct" while he ran his criminal enterprise. The government claimed Kelly took

advantage of his fame to recruit his victims, as many were aspiring singers and fans. Kelly issued "Rob's rules" that many of his sexual partners were required to follow, according to testimony, including that the women and girls were to call him "Daddy" and get permission to eat or go to the bathroom. He isolated them from friends and family to make them dependent on him for their financial well-being, prosecutors said. He required most victims to engage in sex with him and others and recorded many of the sexual encounters. The nearly six-week trial saw 11 accusers take the stand against Kelly, six of whom were minors when the alleged abuse took place. Two were male. He was directly charged for crimes related to just six women who formed the government's case, one being the late singer Aaliyah. Prosecutors claimed the two were illegally married when he was 27 and his protégé

was 15. Although Kelly was dogged by misconduct allegations for years, many of his victims felt he would never face consequences. In 2008, Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges in Chicago after he was accused of making a sex tape with an underage female. While the #MeToo movement saw the downfall of many prominent men, it was 2019's Surviving R. Kelly that brought renewed public interest to his predatory behavior. Many of the women who participated in the Lifetime documentary testified during the trial. The filmmaker behind the series reacted to Monday's verdict, tweeting she's "grateful to the survivors." Kelly still faces state and federal indictments in two other states on similar charges. He will be sentenced in Brooklyn federal court on May 4, 2022.

Victory Garden Initiative hosts 'Voices of Bronzeville' event On Saturday, September 25, 2021, The Victory Garden Initiative, 249 East Concordia Ave., hosted a celebration to mark the release of the new book by local University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee professor and author Dr. Sandra Jones (lower, right photo), "Voice of Milwaukee Bronzeville." Dr. Jones was on hand to talk about her new book and sign copies. The event also celebrated the opening of their gallery with artist and Harambee legend William Nolen (top, right photo). The Victory Garden's new Kitchen Garden To-Go Window was also open to serve up good food for guests. The Victory Garden Initiative has several programs for urban farmer.

Come Alive October Five …let’s do it again MHSI helps residents register to vote from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. residents can get help registering to vote and get a COVID-19 vaccination at the same time. Come Alive October 5 will be held at MLK Heritage Health Center, 2555 N. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.

By Kathy Gaillard, freelance contributor Forty years ago Pamela Clark, Milwaukee Health Services, Inc. (MHSI) corporate communications specialist, accompanied her Uncle Obediah Reynolds as he went door-to-door in Chicago registering people to vote during Harold Washington’s bid for Chicago mayor. That highly successful voter registration initiative helped ensure Washington’s successful election and Clark never forgot the training she received from her uncle or the community engagement and excitement that ensued. Years later that memory still resonated with Clark, so she set about replicating a similar initiative in Milwaukee during last year’s presidential election. MHSI has earned a reputation for holistically serving the community, so they partnered with Souls

Pamela Clark to the Polls to host a Come Alive October 5 event at MHSI. In the wake of Mayor Barrett’s pending appointment to serve in the Biden Administration, another important election looms in Milwaukee. To ensure residents are engaged and registered to vote, MHSI will host Come Alive October Five, in partnership with Souls to the Polls. On Tuesday, October 5, 2021,

“The Come Alive October 5 voter registration event that MHSI hosted during the 2020 Presidential election was so successful, we thought we would do it again. Once the Mayor’s nomination as Ambassador to Luxembourg is confirmed, we want to make sure community residents have a say in electing our next Mayor,” said Clark. Quite by happenstance, a staff person with the Harold Washington Legacy Committee in Chicago, Googled Come Alive October 5 and Milwaukee’s initiative popped up. Curious, the Committee’s Chair, Augger-

Auggeretto Battiste etto Battiste, connected with Clark to learn how she knew about the effort. Battiste was involved with Chicago’s “Come Alive October 5” initiative more than 39 years ago when Harold Washington ran for Mayor. According to Battiste, at the urging of community leaders and politicians, Washington finally agreed to run with two conditions: He wanted a guarantee that they could

register at least 50,000 new voters, and he asked for seed campaign funding of at least $250,000. “At the time there were only 70,000 Blacks registered to vote in all of Chicago. I’m a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraturnity, so I and some of my Alpha brothers—Jack Childs, John Trotter (who later became Senator Trotter), and James Hill—had already been hosting weekly meetings to discuss ways to engage people to vote and address other social issues. Ultimately, with the help of many individuals and community organizations like POWER, the Divine Nine (fraternities and sororities), and others, we exceeded expectations, registering some 230,000 voters between January 1982 through the end of that year. “We understood that a voteless people is a hopeless people, so we forged ahead. As we continued our voter registration efforts, it gained steam and more organizations came onboard to help. A woman named Emma Young came up with the slogan, Come Alive October Five. This all started to help get Harold Washington elected as Mayor of Chicago, but it became a movement,” said Battiste. Currently, in recognition and celebration of former Mayor Harold Washington’s significant contributions to Chicago, Battiste and the Harold Washington Legacy Committee are also in the throes of repeating the Come Alive October Five initiative in Chicago, in honor of what would have been Washington’s 100th birthday. “We are grateful to Pamela Clark for reaching back into her memory bank to host a Come Alive October Five event in Milwaukee. She participated with her uncle—our Alpha brother—more than 39 years ago and, by bringing this event to Milwaukee, her experience is coming full circle,” said Battiste. MHSI is hoping to ignite similar interest in Milwaukee’s upcoming mayoral election as they work to ensure residents’ voices are heard. In addition to Souls at the Polls registering residents to vote, MHSI will be providing vaccinations, and MHSI staff and volunteers will also be giving away Conquer COVID Safety Kits that contain head thermometers, masks, sanitizer, and tissue. Individuals registering to vote must bring a valid Wisconsin driver's license or State ID. An HTGroup, LLC Publication

Honoring Grandparents – It’s Great To be Grand! (conclusion) Christian love in action.

“To forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.” ~ Chinese Proverb As church membership across the country ages, this certainly gives rise to the need for ministries that specifically serve to our aging population. If you haven’t done so already, consider establishing a Senior Adult Ministry in your church that will minister particularly to this age group. While these members have aged, they still have power and ability. They are still capable of serving others and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Any Senior Adult Ministry should empower seniors to continue to serve God whom they love so very much. Above all, love, hon-

or and respect them for their faithful years of service and ministry to the church. Another such ministry is a Nursing Home/Assisted Living Facility Visitation Ministry. Sometimes the loneliest people are those who are residents of nursing homes.

Brewers' Ryan Braun retires during grand pre-game ceremony On Sunday, September 26, 2021, during the Milwaukee Brewers' final home game of the season, Ryan Braun was honored in a grand retirement ceremony at American Family Field Stadium. In front of a packed house of 40,000 people, Braun thanked the fans for the past 14 years, which included four playoff appearances, six All-Star appearances, countless walk-off home runs and more home runs than any other player in franchise history. Braun also teared up while thanking the fans, who live in one of baseball’s smallest markets but “over-deliver in their love for the team.”

Education

COVID-19 changed education in America — permanently (part 2) It’s been a school year like no other. Here’s what we learned.

Lesson 2: Online learning is here to stay For weeks starting in January, from my home in Maryland, I sat in on a virtual course on American Indian education and policy at Salish Kootenai College on the Flathead Reservation in western Montana. The professor, a woman named Michael Munson, had never taught a live (or “synchronous,” in the industry lingo), fully virtual course before. But her warmth helped make it feel like an intimate group of friends. Sure, something was lost because the students couldn’t chat after class or grab a cup of coffee. But something was gained in that they could join even if they were sick — as one did while convalescing with COVID-19 even if they were in their car taking care of some essential family matter, and even on the day in February when it was -5 degrees in Montana and the pipes burst in Munson’s academic building. In virtual classrooms at all levels around the United States, teachers and students have been making discoveries like this. To be clear, online learning has been disastrous for many, many children, whether because the screen is a barrier to building teacher-student relationships, or because they lack a strong internet signal or a quiet place to work. After all, we’ve seen students logging in from the laundry room and doing class presentations in the bathroom. Alarming news about failing grades makes this abundantly clear. But one of the most surprising lessons to emerge is that some students are thriving, and that includes quite young students. A recent poll from POLITICO and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that 29 percent of parents want their child to be in remote or hybrid learning for the next school year, while a RAND Corporation survey of school districts found that by last fall, one in five were already planning or contemplating a post-pandemic virtual schooling option. Experts believe that postCOVID-19, most students will be back in a classroom. But for a subset who face challenges ranging from social anxiety to the disproportionate rates of school discipline for Black students, remote learning may be a good option. Same for families where parents like some aspects of home-schooling, but still want a strong tether to a formal program. As physical classrooms adopt cameras, students who are often out of school due to a chronic illness will have an option to stay better conwww.milwaukeetimesnews.com

nected. Schools disrupted by blizzards or wildfires will have a fallback. (Okay, ending snow days is not going to win any popularity contests.) It will take vigilance, however, to ensure that options that arise to meet this new demand for remote learning are of high quality. As RAND noted in reporting its survey results, based on pre–COVID-19 research, “students enrolled in online schools have had poorer outcomes in math, reading, science, writing, and history achievement when compared with students in traditional schools.” Even when they are teaching in person, many teachers will continue drawing on lessons they learned from having to teach online. After she was forced to cancel all four of her annual choral concerts, Kate Lee had

to radically rethink what to teach as director of choirs at Maine East High School in Park Ridge, IL. She asked students in her heavily immigrant community to choose and perform a song that was meaningful to them, and was blown away by video performances that included a folksong from Nigeria and an Assyrian funeral hymn. Lee decided that going forward, she won’t just assign music

and teach students how to perform it. “Now, I want to give my students more of a voice, so I can learn about them, and they can learn about each other,” she said. “And they can also learn about themselves, right?” Lesson 3: Technology is a basic need With the possible exception of the earliest grades, it’s now clear that in a post-pan-

demic America, every student needs their own device and a reliable internet connection. There is just too much good happening today in the digital environment for students to miss out. Even when school is fully in-person, digital access will allow students to more easily form study groups and do homework together, get involved in coding or digital art projects, or practice patient care in a simulated hospital while training for health care jobs. Consider what Precious Allen has done this year with her second graders at Betty Shabazz International Charter School in Chicago. The students have been blogging, making games and animations in Scratch, a coding language for kids, and holding a book club with students (Continued on pg. 12)

What every 'Sickle Cell Warrior' must know about their patient journey As you try to maintain consistent wellness when dealing with sickle cell disease, it is imperative that you navigate the Patient Journey Roadmap by making five key stops to living the best life possible. Having a chronic illness such as sickle cell disease means understanding all the ways you must take control of your life and not let the disease take control of you. For sickle cell patients, managing your pain crisis is the number one priority. The first stop on the roadmap is: Awareness A sickle cell patient must understand their condition. They must know all there is to know about the disease and how to manage it. Understand your pain triggers. Know what foods increase your immunity. Re-

alize the role exercise plays in your treatment and how much you can handle. Recognize how much stress you can tolerate. Find the medicine that works best for you. Always be aware of the latest drugs and treatments that come to market and research them to see if it is something you want to try. For example, Adakveo is the new infusion drug designed specifically for pain management. It is taken once a month and ensures relief from your pain until the next infusion.

If you hear about a new drug or treatment, ask about it. If they don’t know the answer, ask if you can be directed to someone who does. Be your own advocate. If you begin to feel your Fulfillment doctor does not have your Always be curious about best interest at heart and your disease.

the healthcare system, especially what directly affects you. Navigating the healthcare system can be daunting, so ask family and friends to assist you if life becomes overwhelming, because the last thing a sickle cell patient needs is stress. Find out how to leverage affordable drugs through programs and grants. There are many prescription discount programs available. Research the one that best fits your need. Onboarding Get comfortable with your treatment. If you are trying a new drug or treatment, talk to your doctor about what to expect. Discuss what changes may occur. Will there be side effects, and if so, what should you look out for? If you find that you must go to the emergency room, what will you need

to bring? Ongoing compliance It’s vital that you stay on your regimen. No half doses, no skipping doses. Stick to your nourishment plan. Talk about any depression or anxiety you feel. Find sickle cell support groups that have people to commiserate with that know what you are going through. These support groups can be excellent resources to help you traverse the sickle cell landscape. Always keep your healthcare provider in the loop. They are your first line of defense. It is critical for patients to stay the course on the Patient Journey Roadmap. You are the driver on this healthcare journey. If you make each stop a priority, you are on track to living the best life possible.

COVID-19 isolation linked to increased domestic violence, researchers suggest While COVID-19-related lockdowns may have decreased the spread of a deadly virus, they appear to have created an ideal environment for increased domestic violence.

grades in her class, dismal early in the pandemic, are now quite strong. As with many other teachers, the virtual school environment also transformed Allen’s relationships with her students’ families. Though we had telephones and video apps pre-COVID-19, the pandemic has forced a pronounced shift towards more communication. Going forward, parents with rigid

people completed the survey. Respondents, whose average age was 47, were asked about how COVID-19 had affected them financially and otherwise.

“there are more things to worry about and subsequently argue about. In many instances, that type of situation leads to an occasion for intimate partner violence,” the researchers said.

Research participants in the study completed an online survey asking about previous disaster experience, perceived stress, their current situation as it relates to COVID-19, if they experienced intimate partner violence, and what their personal and household demographics were. In all, 374

Of the respondents, 39 reported having experienced “In our sample’s case, as violence in their relationship, people lost their jobs and and 74 percent of those peo- suffered financial losses, ple were women. they also likely increased their worry about eviction,” Although only 10 percent Cannon said.
