On Thursday, October 15, 2020, Jay-Z's social justice group Team ROC hosted a rally for the three victims of Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah; Alvin Cole, Jay Anderson, Jr., and Antonio Gonzales at Hart Park, 7300 W. Chestnut St. Team ROC partnered with Until Freedom, and Gathering for Justice organized the rally for the family of Alvin Cole to bring attention to the shooting after the decision two weeks ago not to charge Officer Mensah in Cole's death. Besides Cole's family, including his mother Tracy

Cole (left photo, center), there were also family members from the two other victims as well as family members of many of the police shooting victims from the past few years from all over the country. During the rally former Milwaukee Bucks player Caron Butler announced that he was going to pay for Alvin Cole's headstone. Jay-Z and Team ROC have also helped pay for the court fees for Alvin Cole's mother and others arrested for protesting in Wisconsin.

Milwaukee holds 'First Annual Milwaukee Police Appreciation Day'

An NCON Communications Publication

On Thursday, October 15, 2020, the City of Milwaukee hosted its first ever "Annual Milwaukee Police Appreciation Day,"at MPD District 1, 749 W. State St. The idea for "Police Appreciation Day" came from Milwaukee Coalition Against Hate Executive Director Tracey Dent (front row, right). "We just wanted as a community, as a whole, to say thank you for doing what you're doing because you are appreciated," said Dent. As part of "Police Appreciation Day," Dent has joined with a number of local organizations and businesses to bring food to each police district. The snacks served as a small gesture meant to start bridging the gap between the community and police. "It's extremely heartwarming to know that individuals will take the time to think about us in our profession and what we're going through right now," said Milwaukee Police Department Inspector Shunta Boston-Smith. www.milwaukeetimesnews.com

City of Milwaukee cancels trick-or-treating as Wisconsin's coronavirus surge continues The City of Milwaukee has canceled trick-or-treating this year as Wisconsin's surge in coronavirus cases shows no sign of improving. Milwaukee will not have designated trick-or-treat times like it has had in the past and the activity will not be sanctioned by the city’s Health Department since it is deemed high-risk during the coronavirus pandemic, city officials said. Officials are also urging neighborhoods not to have their own door-to-door trickor-treat activities. "The City of Milwaukee Health Department does not support any trick-or-treating door-to-door, whether it be at any traditional time as we have known it to be in the past or any individual neigh-

borhood times that we know happen sometimes the day before or the night of," Interim Health Commissioner Marlaina Jackson said. She said a lot of thought went into the decision to cancel trick-or-treat. "Using our medical and scientific experts as our guidance and our true north of

how we make decisions, we gave it a considerable amount of thought," Jackson said. She said that, like trick-ortreating, attending indoor parties with a lot of people who may or may not be wearing masks is also a highrisk activity that should be avoided.

Jackson said, if at all possible, Halloween activities should take place outside and social distancing should be practiced. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said he doesn't anticipate police being involved in enforcing the city’s decision, saying it's an issue of educating the public. "We have not used law enforcement for any of the orders that we've used thus far. We think it's an education issue more than anything else," Barrett said. "So I don’t anticipate that we’re going to have police out there looking for trick-or-treaters. Having said that, we're also not going to create a designated time for trick-or-treating as we have done in the past."

Officials urged people to try other smaller, family-friendly activities for Halloween, such as having a movie night with others in their "social bubble." "We must reimagine many things including Halloween as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic," Ald. Marina Dimitrijevic said in a statement. For example, she encouraged people in her Bay View district to participate in this year's socially-distanced Pumpkin Pavilion. Milwaukee wasn't the only municipality urging residents to reimagine the holiday. The Shorewood Village Board voted unanimously Monday, October 5 to not have village-sanctioned trickor-treating this year.

SPLC’s Whose Heritage? reports more than 100 Confederate symbols removed since George Floyd’s murder in Southern states where regressive preservation laws halted removal and circumvented the will of communities. But when a society shamelessly honors and protects white supremacists, it follows that those in power would enact unjust laws that disproportionately impact communities of color.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) Wednesday, October 14, 2020 announced that more than 100 Confederate symbols have been removed since May 26, 2020 — the start of the protests following the police killing of George Floyd. The Whose Heritage? report’s data and map track public symbols of the Confederacy across the United States. Since May 26, 2020, we have found a total of 102 Confederacy symbols that were removed from public spaces or renamed. Sixty-four (64) of those symbols are Confederate monuments. Comparatively, 58 Confederate monuments were removed between 2015 and 2019. Virginia has removed the highest number of Confederacy symbols (40) since George Floyd’s killing, followed by North Carolina (18) and Texas (10).

Being Frank The NBA players and the stance they took this COVID infested season deserves a spot in history. Many people talk about the Civil Rights marches of the 60’s as defining moments in US history. The marches and speeches from that time were impactful. The stance the NBA players have taken this past season on social injustice is on the level with the events of the 60’s. People may not admit it, but the path the NBA players have used was laid by the social protests of one man. Colin Kaepernick's decision to sit, then kneel ,during the National Anthem during the 2016 NFL season paved the way for NBA players in 2020.

  By: Frank James Special to the Milwaukee Times

It started with a knee

the NBA played games in a bubble, the message got out to the public via the backs of jerseys. The Milwaukee Bucks took social protest to another level by refusing to take the court during the 2020 Orlando Magic playoff series. This level of protest from professional athletes has never been observed in the USA.

You have to wonder about how the USA would look if NBA players had taken a similar stance on social injustice in the 80’s and 90’s. What if NBA legends like Magic Johnson or Michael Jordan had spoken out like LeBron and modern NBA players have done? In the 80’s social consciousness was the norm in the African American community. Rap music was saturated with social consciousness. The average African American teen wore African medallions and had a concept of what was going on in the USA. What kind of impact on the African American community would Jordan have made if he told Nike that he refused to wear their shoes unless they said, “End racism?” What if Magic had taken a knee or refused to stand during the National Anthem in one of the NBA Finals games he played in?

example, would the 40-plus African American male still be wearing sagging jeans and jerseys in 2020? Would the African American female be so identity-blind to the point she believes weave is her real hair? I think not. Kudos to the 2020 NBA players for taking a stance on social injustice in the USA. These 2020 players in three months have done more to bring to light the plight of African Americans than their predecessors did in five decades. Hopefully the NBA players will continue to stand and be a positive voice for the African American community. Just think about it good people. The way for the 2020 NBA protest was paved by a man born in Milwaukee, WI back in 1987.

I was talking to a Christian scholar who pointed to the fact that the NBA players were following what Kaepernick did in the NFL. I thought about this and had to say that there was some validity to their point. Kaepernick did pave the way for modern pro athletes to use the platform they have and public image for more than selling Nikes. The concept of using their famous faces to speak out against social injustice has been adopted by LeBron James and other NBA players. Even though

Put on a smiley face ☺ (Week 3) Doing random acts of kindness will not only make you smile, but it will make you feel good inside. This week, you are encouraged to find opportunities to do random acts of kindness and show goodwill. Here are a few suggestions: 1. Gather several adults and children and on a Saturday this month, while maintaining appropriate social distancing, pick up the trash in a 2-3 block radius in your neighborhood. If anyone inquires as to the organization you represent, simply tell them, with a smile on your face, that you are performing a random act of kindness and goodwill in your community in celebration of World Smile Day! 2. Your place of worship has been closed for a while. Volunteer to freshen it up by cleaning, dusting and sweeping your church or place of worship this month without accepting monetary payment. Invite other parishioners to help you. 3. If you have an elderly neighbor, or a neighbor that is physically or visually impaired, volunteer to help do a fall cleanup of their yard.

AARP WI poll reveals tight presidential race

Survey shows Wisconsin voters age 50-plus aren’t shifting their candidate preferences AARP Wisconsin’s final battleground election survey of likely Wisconsin voters age 50-plus finds President Trump (46 percent) trailing former Vice President Joe Biden (49 percent). The poll results have moved only slightly from AARP WI’s first poll, released Sept. 10, which showed Trump (45 percent) trailing Biden (50 percent). The survey, conducted by Benenson Strategy Group, also found that fears about contracting the coronavirus have increased among those age 50-plus – from 53 percent worried about catching the virus a month ago to 65 percent in the latest poll. “Wisconsin is poised to play a crucial role in the outcome of this year’s election and our survey indicates it will come down to the wire this fall,” said AARP Wisconsin State Director Sam Wilson. “Any candidate who wants to win needs to talk about their plans to protect the health and financial security of 50-plus voters.” With 4 percent of those polled saying they are still undecided, Wilson stressed that candidates must talk about the issues that matter to voters 50 and over, such as voting safely from home or in-person, preventing cuts to Social Security and Medicare, and lowering prescription drug prices. “Wisconsin voters age 50 and up consistently turn out at a higher rate than younger voters, they are casting their ballots earlier than ever. That’s why candidates need to address their concerns now,” Wilson said. Poll findings include: • President Trump (46 percent) trails former Vice President Joe Biden (49 percent), with 4 percent undecided and 1 percent saying they won’t vote. • Overall favorability for Trump is up two points from the Sept. poll, from 48 to 50. Biden’s favorability went down from 50 to 48.

Choosing a Medicare Part D Plan in the COVID-19 era By Kelle Turner, Medicare Part D Expert, Express Scripts The year 2020 has been like no other. The global pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives. From entertainment and sporting events, to travel and family celebrations—everything has changed. Selecting a Medicare prescription drug plan (also known as Medicare Part D) will also look differently this year. Since the in-person resources used in previous years—such as local workshops or broker consultations—may now need to be scheduled well in advance or held virtually, starting this research early is more important than ever to make sure you choose the plan that works best for your needs and budget.

People in Milwaukee already know! If you are one of the more than 72 percent of Medicare eligible people in Wisconsin who enroll in a Medicare prescription drug plan, you already know how important it is to take the time to compare plans. This is especially true for those new to Medicare because the choices made now can impact your costs for the year ahead.

Once Part D enrollment closes on December 7 you will need to wait another year before you can switch to a plan that better fits your needs.

Three reasons you’re waking up in the middle of the night Unable to get your beauty sleep? Do you find yourself constantly roused during the wee hours of the night? Being unable to sleep through the night could be a sign of a deeper health issue. Here are a few of the most common causes of nighttime waking and what you can do about it. Anxiety or depression It’s no secret that mental health issues such as anxiety or depression can cause restlessness and the inability to fall or stay asleep at night. In some cases, symptoms can worsen and become so severe, that one may wake up due to panic attacks, nightmares or feelings of uneasiness. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), anxiety

disorders are the most common mental disorder, affecting about 40 million adults in the U.S. Symptoms: While occasional anxiety is normal, those with anxiety disorder are, “three to five times more

likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders” than those who don’t suffer from the disorder, the ADAA says. Sufferers may feel constant irrational worry and fear that can

interfere with day-to-day life. How to fix the problem: If one of the two is preventing you from counting sheep, you may need to seek professional help. There are several forms of treatment that may benefit you, including cogni-

tive-behavior therapy, medication, relaxation techniques or exercise. Nocturia Also called nocturnal polyuria, notcturia is defined as frequent urination at night. For most people, urine production slows down as you slumber. But, with the medical condition, that urge to go never ends, prohibiting you from getting that much needed 6 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Symptoms: An immediate urge to pee whenever you wake up at night on a regular basis could mean nocturia. How to fix the problem: Say no to fluids before you call it a night — especially tea or coffee, which act as diuretics. Other underlying health problems that can mimic nocturia include: urinary tract infection, pregnancy, kidney woes, an enlarged prostate gland, or even diabetes. Naturally, treatment will vary based on what’s causing your symptoms. Sleep apnea Sleep apnea is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Every time this happens, you may be awakened from your sleep. Symptoms: Sufferers may experience migraines, sore throat, dry mouth, and chest pain. Some may even have nightmares, after the fact. How to fix the problem: Once diagnosed, doctors may treat the condition by suggesting certain lifestyle changes, such as weight loss, or quitting smoking as well as the use of a breathing assistance device at night, called a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.

Scary Good Take the fear out of trying unfamiliar produce

I

FAMILY FEATURES

ntroducing kids to unfamiliar flavors doesn’t have to be a frightful experience. Getting creative and taking cues from some beloved characters may be all it takes for families to explore produce in a new way and discover how delicious, satisfying and enjoyable fresh fruits and vegetables can be. A passion for produce may begin with America’s favorites, like bananas, apples, citrus, celery, carrots and broccoli, but that’s just the beginning. Whether it’s their angry names and tough exteriors, or simply a fear of the unknown about taste and pre­ paration, dozens more diverse and exotic fruits and vegetables like dragon fruit, horned melon and Brussels sprouts are often the sources of produce paranoia. An initiative from Dole, in collaboration with Disney and Pixar’s Monsters, Inc., is helping to take the scare out of specialty fruits and vegetables and widen America’s produce horizons. That’s because, like a good book or the characters in a beloved film, you can’t judge a fruit or vegetable by its appearance; nature’s true beauty often lies within. The campaign offers character­inspired recipes, serving suggestions, digital and social activations, family­friendly activities, fun trivia and influencer partnerships that celebrate the not­so­scary world of the planet’s more unusual fresh bounty. One easy way to introduce new flavors is by trying a variation of a familiar fruit or veggie. For example, there are more than 500 edible banana varieties in the world. You might sample a red banana or a Manzano, or even an ice cream banana, with a taste resembling vanilla custard. These fun and kid­friendly Green Slime Nacho Cups feature plantains, for example, a member of the banana family with a different taste and texture than everyday yellow bananas – more firm and starchy like a potato. Increase your family’s produce intake even further with a Slippery Slimy Smoothie and Chicken Stuffed Roz Heads, which call for green grapes, celery, avocados, strawberries and blueberries. Find more recipes and other not­so­scary fun at dole.com/Disney, and follow #Dole and #DoleRecipes.

Chicken Stuffed Roz Heads

Prep time: 15 minutes Servings: 3 1 cup cubed, cooked chicken breast 1/2 cup DOLE® Green Grapes, halved 1/4 cup chopped Dole Celery 1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 1/2 Dole Avocados, halved, pitted and peeled 6 whole-wheat pretzel twists 18 whole-wheat pretzel sticks 1 Dole Strawberry, sliced 3 dried, sweetened blueberries In bowl, stir together chicken, grapes, celery, yogurt, salt and pepper. Scoop three equal portions onto serving plate. Shape each into oval. Top each with upside down avocado half. Decorate each avocado half to resemble Roz’s face. Using sharp paring knife, trim each pretzel twist to create horn­rimmed glasses lens by cutting off double loop section of each pretzel twist and discarding or enjoying as snack, keeping single loop portion, which will become one lens. Two lenses are needed per Roz Head. Place two pretzel lenses on each avocado to form glasses. Add pretzel stick to each side of avocado to form arms of glasses. Push four pretzel sticks into top of each avocado to form hair. Add strawberry slice, trimmed to look like lips for her mouth, and place blueberry on lower left side of face to form mole.

Green Slime Nacho Cups

Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes Servings: 4 1 green starting to turn yellow DOLE® Plantain, peeled and thinly sliced on bias 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1 Dole Avocado, halved, pitted and peeled 1 tablespoon lime juice 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 cup thinly shredded Dole Purple Cabbage Preheat oven to 375 F. Toss plantain slices with canola oil and season with pinch of salt. On parchment paper­lined

baking sheet, arrange slices in single layer with no overlapping. Bake 18­20 minutes, or until crispy and lightly golden. Cool completely and set aside. Using spoon, scoop flesh of avocado into small bowl and mash, reserving one half avocado shell. Stir mashed avocado with lime juice, garlic and remaining salt. Stir in slaw, reserving some for garnish. Scoop into reserved avocado shell and smooth top with back of spoon. Stick reserved cabbage shreds out of avocado mix­ ture to look like hair. Serve slime nacho cups with plan­ tain chips.
