Milwaukee Board of School Directors approves acting MPS Superintendent

MPS’ Chief Innovation Officer Darienne Driver brings extensive leadership experience; work with improving schools most in need

The Milwaukee Board of School Directors has named Darienne Driver, Ed.D. as Acting Superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools, effective July 1, 2014. Dr. Driver will serve as the head of the nearly 80-thousand student school district – the largest in Wisconsin – until a successor superintendent is selected. The Board sought an acting leader to replace Dr. Gregory E. Thornton, who accepted a position as Chief Executive Officer with the Baltimore City Public Schools effective July 1, 2014. “Dr. Driver has accepted the position and will lead us forward and build on the foundation laid by Dr. Thornton,” said Milwaukee Public Schools Board of School Directors’ president Dr. Michael Bonds. “We are honored to have such an outstanding candidate leading us

during this transition period.” Dr. Driver has served as the district’s Chief Innovation Officer since July 2012. She leads district efforts to improve outcomes in the schools in greatest need of improvement; oversees the district’s implementation of the Wisconsin Common Core State Standards in literacy and mathematics in partnership with the GE Foundation and Student Achievement Partnership through the development of ten MPS-GEF Demonstration Schools; recruits multiple educational organizations to serve as partners in efforts to improve student achievement; and oversees the district’s contracted school services which serves students through alternative programming for

Darienne Driver, Ed.D. at-risk students and non-instrumentality charter schools and turnaround models. “I look forward to continuing to serve Milwaukee Public Schools and the children of the city in my new role and appreciate the confidence of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors,” said Dr. Driver. “We will continue to

build on the great work that’s being done in the district. Much more remains to be done and it is challenging work. Working with my colleagues, the community, our students and families, we will move forward with our efforts to improve outcomes for our students.” Prior to joining MPS, Dr. Driver served as Deputy Chief – Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development, and Deputy Chief – Empowerment Schools for the School District of Philadelphia. In Philadelphia, she oversaw the Empowerment Schools efforts to increase achievement with large numbers of underperforming students and coordinated district efforts to provide needed support. Under her leadership, Empowerment

Schools outpaced district schools on the Pennsylvania State System Assessment (PSSA) in Reading and Math. Empowerment Schools’ high schools made the largest gains on PSSA in history in English/Language Arts and Math. Dr. Driver began her career as an elementary school teacher in the Detroit Public Schools. Dr. Driver received a doctorate from Harvard University in Urban Superintendency. She has a master’s degree from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and also received a master’s in curriculum development from the University of Michigan. She earned her undergraduate degree at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. The Board will continue the search process for a permanent superintendent.

Youth talk about violence and their future The youth of Milwaukee are concerned with the violence they see surrounding them. That was the feedback from dozens of young people who gathered this past weekend at the Social Development Commission (SDC) Youth and Family Development Program. Core Team members of the “A Single Bullet” project addressed their peers during the gathering at SDC Richards Street to present the findings of a half-year study for the project funded by Safe and Sound. The young people have been talking with Milwaukee Police, the Homicide Review Commission, the Project Ojima of Children’s Hospital and community leaders about gun violence and its impact on all residents, not just those who are immediately affected by a shooting. The young project members presented case scenarios involving gun violence to the gathered youth and then led a discussion on what they had in common and what could have been done to prevent them. Jessica Sims addressed the young people to share her pain at losing her brother during the past year. She

She pointed out that she is currently enrolled in college and asked the young people to realize the many options they have for their future of which they can take advantage. H2O Milwaukee presented a music video made with the help of local high school students that was videotaped and recorded in Milwaukee. The video was shot along well-known streets of the city and emphasized for the youth that the violence that

seems so common on the evening news is happening right where they live. SDC Commissioner Dr. Demond Means also led a spirited discussion among the youth as part of the agency’s Task Force on Youth and Poverty. He posed several questions to the young people that sparked a lively giveand- take from the youth about the challenges they face and what help they see as needed by the community. Dr. Means noted that the Task Force is currently gathering ideas and suggestions

that will be presented later this summer to policy makers at the local and state levels and promised that their feedback will be heard. The young women and men expressed a number of concerns during the resulting discussion. Many of the ideas given by the youth focused on the need for them to be able to access productive jobs that will provide a positive way to earn money. The young people also expressed concern about having schools that will challenge and help them, the need for respect from adults, and the need for programs that can help give positive alternatives to risky behavior, especially for pre-teens. The youth walked away from the full morning with the message that they can have some control over their futures. They were urged to take positive steps to create a better Milwaukee for themselves and those who will come after them. And that, they heard, starts with how they value themselves and each other. As Jessica Sims reminded them, “The grave will claim you if you don’t think you are worth more.”

Milwaukee’s newest ad campaign tackles NHSA healthy start fathersthe issue of statutory rape real life, real dads Ads targets teens and adult males in areas with highest teen birth rates United Way of Greater Milwaukee, in collaboration with Serve Marketing, is launching a provocative new public awareness campaign that will deliver a strong message to adults and teens – about the harsh consequences of statutory rape. According to the United Way of Greater Milwaukee, most babies born to teen moms in Milwaukee are fathered by adult men. It’s a problem that the city simply can’t ignore, said Nicole Angresano, Vice President of Community Impact at United Way of Greater Milwaukee. “This community cannot ignore statutory rape and sexual victimization if we truly want to impact teen pregnancy,” Angresano, said. “Milwaukee will not accept statutory rape as status quo. We will continue to elevate awareness of this issue until young people are able to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy relationships, between love and abuse, and between legal and illegal. ” The powerful ads show empty jail cells, as adults being fingerprinted and in the back of police cars. Headlines all start with the words, “If age is just a number,” then finish with statements like, “jail is just a room,” “sex offender is just a nickname, ” and “this is just a free ride.” The copy goes on to read, “Sex with an underage teen is statutory rape. It’s also a felony you may want to think twice about committing.” Viewers are directed to ItsStillRape.com for more in-

formation. One of the most shocking and significant challenges the United Way-led Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative has faced over the past eight years is the link between Milwaukee’s epidemic teen pregnancy rates and statutory rape. “For a lot of young teens girls, getting the attention of an adult man is flattering,” explains Serve founder

and volunteer creative director Gary Mueller. “We hope these ads make it crystal clear that when the relationship turns to sex, it’s rape.” This effort comes on the heels of the group’s wildly successful interactive YouTube campaign called “Sex Myths”-which launched last fall and got over 200,000 teens to take an interactive sex quiz online.

John Lewis to young leaders: Get in 'necessary trouble' Not every speaker tells a crowd of young leaders that their job is to get into trouble. But that’s part of the message iconic civil rights warrior and now Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) conveyed at this year’s week-long Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) Freedom Schools®’ National Training that began June 1st for nearly 2,000 college age Freedom School servant leaders and site coordinators. They will mentor, teach, and lead Freedom School programs for over 12,500 pre-K through 12th grade students across the country this summer in faith congregations, public schools, college campuses, juvenile detention facilities, homeless shelters, and a range of other settings where the neediest children live. Freedom Schools seek to

empower children through reading wonderful books, to engage parents, and to reweave the fabric of community support for children. John Lewis and Andrew Young spoke movingly at the opening training session celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Freedom Summer, when young White people from around the country joined local Black citizens and Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) workers to open up Mississippi’s closed Jim Crow society and demand the right to vote for Black citizens. Freedom Summer 1964 helped transform Mississippi and American society, but it demanded great sacrifice and courage. Three young people, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, gave

that when he was their age getting into “necessary trouble” shaped his life’s mission. As he explained, he grew up poor in rural Troy, Alabama, where his father, a former tenant farmer, had saved enough money to buy his own land. He worked on the farm alongside the rest of his family but was always desperate to get an education. A teacher encouraged him over and over to read all he could. Although he wasn’t allowed in his segregated county library like so many of our John Lewis generation, he did his best: “I their lives after investigating tried to read everything, the the burning of a local Black few books we had at home, church where a Freedom the magazines.

paper and read it.” He also listened to the radio to learn more about the news outside his small community, and eventually started hearing about new events that would change his life: “In 1955, 15 years old in the 10th grade, I heard of Rosa Parks. I heard of Martin Luther King, Jr. I heard his voice on an old radio, and it seemed like he was saying, “John Lewis, you, too, can do something . . . You can make a contribution.” John Lewis decided then that was exactly what he would do. He started with the library: “So in 1956, 16 years old, some of my brothers and sisters and cousins, (Continued on pg. 4)

Get in 'necessary trouble' (Continued from pg. 3) we went down to the public library in the little town of Troy, Alabama, trying to get a library card, trying to check out some books, and we were told by the librarian that the library is for Whites only and not for coloreds.” A year later, as a high school senior he decided to apply to Troy State College (now Troy University), a White college close to his home—but his application was ignored and unanswered. John Lewis was stopped temporarily—but he was not finished. Without telling his parents or anyone else what he was doing he wrote a letter to Dr. King asking for his help, and Dr. King responded by sending the teenager a roundtrip Greyhound bus ticket and inviting him to come to Montgomery to meet with him. By that time John Lewis had enrolled in his first year at American Baptist Theological Seminary (now American Baptist College) in Nashville, Tennessee. Over his spring break the 18-yearold decided to take Dr. King up on his offer: “So in March of 1958, I boarded a Greyhound bus [and] traveled to Montgomery . . . I was so scared. I didn’t know what to say or what to do, and Dr. King said, ‘Are you the boy from Troy?’ . . . Meeting Martin Luther King Jr., meeting Ralph Abernathy, meeting Rosa Parks, and later meeting Jim Lawson, who taught me the way of peace, the way of love, the way of nonviolence, changed my life and set me on a path. And I haven’t looked back since.” John Lewis explained that his parents and community hadn’t taught him to challenge segregation: “When I would ask my parents about those signs they would say, ‘That’s the way it is. Don’t get in the way. Don’t get in trouble’.” But his experience in the civil rights movement taught him a different lesson that he wanted to share with today’s young leaders: “I got in trouble. I got in good trouble, necessary trouble. I say to you, you’re more than lucky. You are blessed, and you have to use

whatever you see to pass it on to someone else. Bless someone else. Be bold. Be brave. Be courageous. Speak up. Speak out. You must get out there and push and pull and help change things and bring about a nonviolent revolution, a revolution of values, a revolution of ideas . . . Someone must put out and say what is going on is not right, it is not fair, it is not just, and we are here to do something about it.” He told the very rapt audience that getting into necessary trouble in order to stand up for what is right is required of us all: “If we fail to do it, history will not be kind to us.” And he reminded us that this is true even when there is a terrible cost, as with the murders of the three Freedom Summer volunteers in Philadelphia, Mississippi: “Andy Goodman, Michael Schwerner, and James Chaney. I knew these three young men. On the night of June 21, 1964, almost 50 years ago, these three young men were detained, taken to jail, taken out, turned over to the Klan, where they were beaten and shot and killed. They didn’t die in the Middle East or Eastern Europe or Vietnam or in Central or South America. They died right here in our own country, and they must be looked upon as the founding fathers of the new America, a new way of doing things, a new way of life.” John Lewis was another of those founding fathers and mothers whose leadership in the civil rights movement and in nearly thirty years as a Member of Congress is helping shape the America we must become. He left his audience with a final encouragement to do the same: “So go out there and be a headlight and not a tail light. Get out there and get in the way, get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and be yourself. It will all work out.” It’s a message young people across our nation and all of us need to hear and act upon today. Marian Wright Edelman is President of the Children's Defense Fund whose Leave No Child Behind® mission is to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.

"We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated." Maya Angelou

Rebuilding our Community By Dr. Andrew Calhoun, Ed.D. Still I Rise “You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I’ll rise” Those were the words spoken by Maya Angelou in the poem, “Still I Rise,” and are included in her book of poetry entitled, “And Still I Rise.” Over the decades, her gifts as an author, teacher, poet, actor, dancer and singer continue to make a profound impression upon many generations as well as internationally. During her life time, she wrote seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, and was credited with a list of plays, movies and television shows spanning more than 50 years. She received countless awards, over 30 honorary doctoral degrees, worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, James Baldwin, recited her poem “On the Pulse of Morning,” at the President Bill Clinton’s inauguration in 1993 and in 2011 received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama. She was born in 1928 in St. Louis, Missouri; however, her childhood was quite challenging as she and her brother lived in various places. Those early years played a pivotal role in her life and future. In those early years, she learned the hard way; worked various menial jobs, all the while trying to develop her artist talents of singing, dancing and writing. It was through her gift of writing that she begin to find her place in a complex world and began writing about her childhood and early adult life experiences. In her first autobiography, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” in 1969, she tells of her life up to the age of seventeen. This book brought her international recognition and acclaim as she wrote about how strength of one’s character and a love of literature can help overcome trauma and racism. In her book, “And Still I Rise,” which consists of 32 short poems; she uses themes that point to a hopeful determination to rise above difficulty and discouragement. Throughout the book she speaks for her race and gender, and yet again emphasizes the strength

and resiliency of her community. In the poem, “Still I Rise,” she see beyond the actions of others and with a clear understanding that regardless of what is hap-

pening there will always be an opportunity. As so, with some much occurring in our communities these days ... gun violence, racism, gangs, prejudice, drugs, and poverty... “still we can rise.” What do you think?

Lifestyle evangelism: A living faith (Week 2) “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only…” - James 1:22 (ESV) This month we are looking at evangelism. Evangelism is the active calling of people to respond to the message of grace and commit oneself to God in Jesus Christ. Evangelism is derived from the Greek word euaggelion, meaning “gospel” or “good news” and therefore evangelism has to do with the proclamation of the message of good news. The verbal forms of euaggelizesthai, meaning “to bring” or “to announce good news” occur some 55 times (Acts 8:4, Acts 8:25, Acts 8:35; Acts 11:20) and are normally translated with the appropriate form of the word “preach.” While the word “evangelism” does not occur in the Bible, it is woven into the very fabric of Scripture. The responsibility to evangelize rests upon every believer (Matthew 28:19-20). Believers are most effective

when they teach and practice lifestyle evangelism. What is lifestyle evangelism? Lifestyle Evangelism is proclamation through words and deeds rather than through words only. Lifestyle evangelism is an evangelism strategy that focuses on living a holy, winsome life among unbelievers with the goal of attracting people to the message of Jesus Christ. Many variations of lifestyle evangelism exist, but the definitive resource is the book Lifestyle Evangelism by Joe Aldrich: "The unbeliever needs to feel the impact of the gospel (good news that Christ loves people), and not merely listen to it. When love is felt the message is heard [p. 83] we need to pause and underscore a crucial fact with a crucial implication. Our world has changed. One major implication is that our presentation of the gospel must adapt itself to a vastly changed target audience [p.

85]. God has good news for the person who needs love and affection, security or esteem [p. 88]. People are more inclined to respond to the gospel when they understand how trusting Christ will satisfy their needs [p. 95] ...” Lifestyle evangelism has been popular since the 1990s, and many Western Christians have sought to share their faith through their lifestyle in addition to their verbal testimony. In contrast with other methods such as tracts, crusades, and media-based outreach, popular in the midtwentieth century, lifestyle evangelism focuses on building relationships with one person at a time. Through friendship and relationships, opportunities arise to share

the gospel. Critics claim that lifestyle evangelism is insufficient or that it ignores the Bible’s command to share the gospel verbally. Doing good works is not enough; we must speak the truth. However, lifestyle evangelism can and should do both. There are many examples in Scripture of those who both lived out their faith and verbally shared their faith. For example, Peter boldly shared his faith in Christ on the Day of Pentecost in the streets of Jerusalem, and 3,000 people were converted to Christ and baptized as a result (Acts 2:41). Shortly afterwards, he and the other apostles took actions to meet the needs of the people (Acts 2:41-47). Paul exhorted Timothy to “Pay close attention to your life and your teaching; persevere in these things, for by doing this you will save both yourself and your hearers” (1 Timothy 4:16). Paul empha-

sized that Timothy’s lifestyle and preaching were both important in the effort to evangelize others. So long as lifestyle evangelism does not replace the verbal sharing of the gospel, it is a legitimate ministry tool. Lifestyle evangelism can be a wonderful way to show faith in action in a world that needs to see what true Christianity looks like.

Education

Congratulations to the 2014 class of high school graduates

By State Superintendent Tony Evers

It’s graduation season again in Wisconsin. Over the course of the next few weeks, nearly 60,000 high school seniors will wrap up their journey from kindergarten to 12th grade and begin the next phase of their lives. Receiving a high school diploma unlocks countless opportunities, and Wisconsin continues to be a national leader in high school graduation rates. Wisconsin’s graduates will take many diverse paths. Some will enter the workforce or join the military, but most will continue their

education at a two- or fouryear college or university. In fact, recent data shows that more Wisconsin students are seeking to continue their education immediately after completing high school. This trend runs counter to that of the nation and demonstrates the desire Wisconsin’s graduates have to further their education. Yet despite the different routes graduates take after high school, they will forever share a common experience — the strong educational foundation they received. Students are exposed to a variety of challenges, sometimes in schools or simply through life events. When

will undoubtedly arise. The skills they have learned from teachers, administrators, support staff, and their parents will prove invaluable to them. I have the opportunity as state superintendent to visit schools across Wisconsin. I interact with students with different backgrounds, but the foundation of skills that help our graduates succeed is something they all share. State Superintendent And while every graduate Tony Evers does not possess identical students encountered these skills or life experiences, the obstacles, they had the help quality education they reof their families and educa- ceived prepared them in the tors to lead them along and best possible way to succeed. teach valuable lessons. As Whether our graduates folthey begin the next stage of low in the footsteps of Wistheir lives, new difficulties consin high school alumna

Marissa Mayer, the current CEO of Yahoo, or alumnus Tony Shalhoub, a multiple Emmy award winning actor, their education will be an essential element to their success. So graduates, if you have not done so yet, take time to reflect on the education you received, and think about the people who guided you along the way. Before you move on to the next chapter of your life, thank them for getting you to where you are now. Always remember the skills these people taught you and use them to reach your dreams while giving back to others and our communities.

Keeping kids off the 'summer slide' Something is waiting for many children each summer and their parents don’t even know it’s out there. It's called the "summer slide," and it describes what happens when young minds sit idle for three months. As parents approach the summer break, many are thinking about the family vacation, trips to the pool, how to keep children engaged in activities at home, the abrupt changes to everyone's schedule—and how to juggle it all. What they might not be focusing on is how much educational ground their children could lose during the three-month break from school, particularly when it comes to reading. Experts agree that children

who read during the summer gain reading skills, while those who do not often slide backward. According to the authors of a report from the National Summer Learning Association: "A conservative estimate of lost instructional time is approximately two months or roughly 22 percent of the school year.... It's common for teachers to spend at least a month reteaching material that students have forgotten over the summer. That month of reteaching eliminates a month that could have been spent on teaching new information and skills." The report's authors further note that family income plays a significant role in determining the magnitude of

this summer slide. Students from low-income families "... experience an average summer learning loss in reading achievement of over two months." Not only do these students suffer greater slid-

ing during the summer, they also experience cumulative effects of greater learning loss each summer. Sociologists Karl Alexander and Doris Entwisle have shown that the cumula-

tive effect of summer learning differences is a primary cause of widening achievement gaps between students of lower and higher socioeconomic levels. Research demonstrates that while student achievement for both middle- and lower-income students improves at similar rates during the school year, low-income students experience cumulative summer learning losses throughout their elementary school years. Summer slide affects millions of children each year in this country—but it doesn't have to.

The neglected story of African Americans on D-Day

Official histories of D-Day have long excluded the contributions made by African Americans. Literature professor Alice Mills waded into the past to uncover these forgotten World War II heroes. William Dabney could barely see the outline of the French coast as his landing vessel made an unsteady approach before dawn on June 6, 1944. A giant, zeppelinshaped helium balloon hovered over the Allied boat. Strapped to Dabney via a long steel cable, it was designed to dissuade German fighter pilots from strafing the US soldiers who were about to hit Omaha Beach. In the bloody chaos that ensued, Dabney’s balloon was shot out above him. “Some marines had already landed before us and the beach was just about covered with dead bodies,” he told FRANCE 24 in a recent interview. “Of course we were still coming in, just stepping over the bodies, moving forward.” With no replacement balloon to raise, he dug into the sand and survived long hours of carnage before regrouping with other members of the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion – the first African American unit in the segregated US Army to come

ashore on D-Day. Dabney, like other black WWII soldiers, didn’t just play a key role in reclaiming and keeping France’s northwestern shores on D-Day, he actively contributed to the entire war effort. Following the heroic invasion, the young soldier was then dispatched to a 90 mm antiaircraft gun team. “I followed the big gun wherever it went. I went to Saint Lo, then near Paris, and then later to Belgium and Holland,” he remembered. His task was always to raise the explosives-packed helium balloons, a defensive measure that proved decisive in protecting Allied materiel and men from Luftwaffe bombings. Dabney returned stateside only when the war in Europe ended and nearly saw combat in the Pacific. Japan

capitulated as his unit was on its way to the Philippines. However, the commitment and bravery that members of the 320th Battalion displayed during World War II would then fade into obscurity for decades. A personal quest Half a century after that fateful day, Alice Mills, a French scholar of African American literature, joined the Université de Caen, not far from the American war cemeteries in Normandy. That year the city was celebrating the 50th anniversary of D-Day with billboards of archive photos. Mills was struck by the fact that not one poster included an African American soldier. “They had been erased from memory. I wondered, why this complete absence? It didn’t seem fair,” she told FRANCE 24.

Furthermore, she recurrently heard historians say that black troops had stood out in Normandy for their criminal behavior toward the locals - claims contradicted by her conversations with people who had lived through the war. “I began to systematically record eye-witness accounts,” she recalled. “Most often older people would tell me: ‘We were terrorised by the Germans, but not by the black soldiers. For me the white and black American soldiers were the same’.” In 2006, Mills was able to take her investigation further. Far from the familiar field of literature that was her specialisation, she amassed a trove of interviews about war-time Normandy, and delved into WWII archives in Washington, DC. She resurfaced clutching a completely different story about African Americans in the Normandy campaign. The importance of the 320th Battalion for D-Day’s success had been recognised in an address by General Eisenhower himself. African American soldiers had fought Germans, sometimes in hand-to-hand combat. They had almost exclusively manned the so-called Red Ball Express operation, a

massive round-the-clock truck convoy that re-supplied the Allied front line and made the push toward Paris possible. Yes, some excesses had been committed in Normandy by black soldiers, as was the case with white soldiers, but the story of AfricanAmerican GIs did not start and end with court-martial cases. An overdue thank you In 2009 Mills received an unexpected phone call. Her research had been highlighted in an article in the French newspaper Le Monde and then the International Herald Tribune, and the White House was calling her to ask if she had contact with any surviving members of the 320th Battalion. One of them was William Dabney, by then a pensioner in Roanoke, Virginia. He had returned to a still segregated US in 1945, and while he earned an electrical engineering degree, sector jobs were largely barred to black candidates. Instead he became a carpet layer and tile setter and ran his own successful business for 40 years. Several weeks after the surprise phone call, Dabney and his son travelled to Normandy for the 65TH (Continued on pg. 14)

Melatonin also stimulates the production of SOD, catalase, and glutathione, and initiates repair to the genes and nervous system. It functions better in the presence of fiber.

Some reminders about detecting and treating strokes are offered as Stroke Awareness Month continues.

anniversary of D-Day. The veteran shook hands with President Barack Obama and received the Legion of Honour from France. “I had to stand at attention and salute the flag for four national anthems. I felt like my arm was going to fall off because I was in my 80s then, and now I’m 90,” he admitted with a laugh. Alice Mills says she is happy she has contributed to the neurological surgery and true story of African Ameriradiology at Stony Brook, in the news release. “Ask to be taken to a primary stroke center, where appropriate and efficient protocols are in place, the latest interventions are available 24/7 and your medical team is experienced and highly trained.” Fiorella said it’s important to know that there are two kinds of strokes -- ischemic (a vessel becomes blocked and can’t bring proper blood flow to parts of the brain) and hemorrhagic (a vessel ruptures and bleeding begins in or around the brain). Ischemic strokes are the most common, Fiorella said. “Both kinds can be either acute or chronic. Acute stroke generally signifies the sudden onset of symptoms, indicating that you are indeed having a stroke. Chronic stroke indicates the presence of factors that could eventually cause a stroke, such as a blockage or an un-ruptured aneurysm. In these cases, if detected in time and treated, stroke can be prevented.”

Alice Mills cans in World War II. The Peace Memorial in the city of Caen now includes photos of black GIs. But as the world marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day she says “official” histories continue to present

a distorted and superficial account of African American soldiers. She hopes her book “Black GIs Normandy 1944”, published in March, will encourage historians to dig deeper.

Family caregivers:

Have a family meeting before a crisis situation Support Network Why have a family meeting? Too often a family meeting is delayed until the older adult has a health or housing relocation crisis. They are frequently held informally through discussion during the holidays or at special family events. However, when family meetings are held because of a crisis or during informal activities, discussion can be fragmented and often not everyone involved is consulted. It is common for family members to have misconceived or pre-existing ideas regarding the physical and mental capabilities of the older adult. Family members also may be confused about exactly what their caregiving role is going to be. This is why having a family meeting is so important; and why doing so before a crisis situation can help avoid the heightened emotions brought on by stressful circumstances. Ideally, in a situation of aging parents and adult children, the parents should openly discuss their caregiving expectations with their children. The adult children need to define their limitations as to how much caregiving they are willing to do. All immediate family members should be present in a non-crisis situation. A good way to bring up the topic of caregiving is to get all close family members and

15

Purposeful life might be a longer life Those who had activities, people they cared about were more likely to be alive at end of 14-year study

friends, age 18 and older, together to fill out their Power of Attorney for Health Care forms, appoint health care representatives and discuss care preferences. The forms, which are free, can help stimulate discussion about the older adults’ care and housing preferences. They can be found at http://www.dhs. wisconsin.gov/forms/advdirectives. Is a family meeting always needed? Some families who frequently communicate by telephone or face-to-face and understand the need to “share” caregiving functions may not need a family meeting. However, this scenario is rare. A family meeting can still be a nice way to check on whether or not everyone feels they are being treated fairly or kept in the communication loop. How do you hold a “family meeting?” The meeting

should be kept as small as possible, only attended by those individuals who will have direct decision-making or care involvement. If the older adult is mentally competent, he or she needs to be involved in all decisions about his or her own care and attend all family meetings. A basic agenda should be developed to keep the meeting on track. Before the meeting everyone should be able to give their input on the topics for discussion and no one’s ideas should be discounted. The outline can change and develop with future meetings and as care needs change. For ideas on important topics to include and discuss see the Family Caregiver Support Network’s handout entitled “Family Planning is Important”.

You may live longer if you feel you have a purpose in life, a new study suggests. Researchers analyzed data from more than 6,000 people who were asked if they felt they had a purpose in life and about their relations with others. The participants were then followed for 14 years. During that time, about 9 percent of them died. Those who died during the follow-up had reported feeling less purpose in life and having fewer positive relationships than the survivors, according to the study published recently in the journal Psychological Science. Having greater purpose in life was also associated with lower risk of death in younger, middle-aged and older adults. This consistency across all age groups came as a surprise to the investigators. “There are a lot of reasons to believe that being purposeful might help protect older

adults more so than younger ones,” lead researcher Patrick Hill, of Carleton University in Canada, said in a journal news release. “For instance, adults might need a sense of direction more, after they have left the workplace and lost that source for organizing their daily events. In addition, older adults are more likely to face [death] risks than younger adults,” he explained. The results could be used to help promote healthy aging, according to the researchers. “Our findings point to the fact that finding a direction for life, and setting overarching goals for what you want to achieve can help you actually live longer, regardless of when you find your purpose,” Hill said. “So the earlier someone comes to a direction for life, the earlier these protective effects may be able to occur.”

“All Different Now: Juneteenth, the First Day of Freedom” by Angela Johnson, illustrated by E.B. Lewis Tomorrow morning, when you wake up, everything will be changed. Oh, sure, you’ll still be in the same bed with the same sheets and jammies. Your room will be the same room you went to sleep in. Your mom will still be your mom and your dad will still be your dad – but it’ll be a whole new day with new possibilities. As you’ll see in the new book “All Different Now” by Angela Johnson, illustrated by E.B. Lewis, one day can really mean a lot. Every morning, the breeze from the gulf woke everyone up, telling them it was time to start the day in the fields beneath the hot Texas sun. Just like every other day, it was time to work and work some more – but there was one day when everything was different, though nobody knew it at first. And then someone told someone else on the edge of

$6

c.2014, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, $17.99 / $19.99 Canada, 40 pages the gulf. And that someone took the word to town, and told friends. The friends were so happy that they spread the message around the country. The news was like a wave in the ocean and pretty soon, everyone in the fields knew –

and they were happy. They knew that “a Union general had read from a balcony” that everyone was free – not just now, but “forever.” From that minute forward, nothing would be like it was the day before. Everything

would “be all different now.” People sang their happiness with faces raised. Others – those who didn’t think they’d ever see it – cried tears of joy. Some could hardly believe that day had come and they “whispered things” to one another. Since nobody was being forced to work in the fields that day, they all went to the beach for a picnic by the water. Even the sand was changed. Dancing felt new. Food tasted different for those who were free for the first time. Even stories sounded sweeter. And at the end of the day, it was especially nice to walk next to cotton fields that didn’t demand work. It was nice to go to bed, knowing that the next morning and every one after that, the sun would wake everyone up and nothing would ever be the same… In her notes, author Angela Johnson says that a photo of

her great-grandparents led her to wonder how they celebrated when they learned of their freedom which, because they were slaves in Texas, came more than two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. That’s a great way to introduce the pages of historical overview about Emancipation and Juneteenth that follow, but be sure to read the illustrator’s note, too. E.B. Lewis writes about making this book come alive, which he calls his “biggest challenge.” The challenge for you, I think, is talking your 3-to7-year-old into letting go of this book now and then because they’ll want to hold fast to it. As for you, if you’re prone to saying no to “just one more book,” then “All Different Now” might change your mind.

One of our intentions, "Dads and Diamonds are Forever," is an 11-week curriculum that aims to restore a man's sense of value to himself, his child(ren), the mother of his child(ren), and his community. But since fatherhood is just one facet of men's identity, we also educate our fathers (and their partners) about "men's health," in the broadest sense, including mental, physical, social, emotional, and financial. A man's health influences his ability to successfully engage with his family, and we know that the healthiest fathers-

the ones who take charge of their own health, who support their children and the mothers of their childre.n -have the potential to be the best fathers, and to become the most positive contributors to their communities. To help us achieve our goal of meeting the needs of at-risk fathers nationwide through best-practice and evidence-based programming, we often partner with other organizations that share similar goals and whose expertise complements our own. June is Men's Health Month, and as men's unique health needs become more widely known and documented,

We recognize that most dads today aren't Jim Anderson (Father Knows Best), nor are they Cliff Huxtable (The Cosby Show). And we recognize that although many dads today face tremendous obstacles-cultural, educational, financial, and legal-to being as involved as they'd like to be, they care about their family and love their children just as passionately as those idealized TV fathers do.
