AACC luncheon featured trailblazing entrepreneurs By: Raina J. Johnson Special to The Milwaukee Times The African American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Milwaukee presented its annual ‘Women in Business’ series luncheon, with the theme of “Journey of Powerful Women.” This year, the sold-out event featured two very successful entrepreneurs who went after their dreams and never looked back: Ms. Lazonnie Belton, President/ CEO and Instructor at Visions in Hair Design (VHD) Institute of Cosmetology, located in Milwaukee; and Miss Robbie Montgomery, owner of Sweetie Pie’s at the Mangrove and The Upper Crust, nationally acclaimed soul food restaurants in St. Louis, MO. Ms. Belton, or Ms. B, as her students affectionately call her, is a trailblazer in the

beauty and business worlds. Dr. Eve Hall, President of the African American Chamber said, “Visions in Hair Design is the only female, African American owned and operated cosmetology institute in the state of Wisconsin.” That fact alone makes Ms. B a visionary leader and pillar in this community. The realization of her dream didn’t come easily, but Ms. B never gave up. “As a little girl, I was always the one that wanted to do somebody’s hair. When I got older, everyone would come to me to get their hair and make up done for their special occasions. It was always my dream and vision to become a cosmetologist. I also liked to play school, but I had to be the teacher or the principal,

Men's Day at St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church The League of Women Voters

of Milwaukee County hosts 'Redistricting: A call for reform'

The League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County is hosting a meeting on the effects of redistricting in our state. Redistricting: A Call for Reform is being held on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. in the Firefly Room of the Wauwatosa Public Library, located at 7635 W. North Avenue, Wauwatosa, WI 53213. This non-partisan meeting Staff Photos is open to the public. League of Women Voter members St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church, 3057 North 35th Street, observed Men’s Day Carolyn Castore and Han-

on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. The Men’s Day theme was: “The Man Who Wanted a Blessing (1 Chronicle 4:9-10)." The Master of Ceremony was Minister Oscar Reap. Other program participants included: Minister Timothy Medley, Jr., and musical selections were sung by the Christ Chapel Male Chorus from Racine, WI. Other special guests included: A. D. Conner, of True Faith Baptist Church; Pastor Julia Fields, of Good Generation of Hope Church; Pastor William Robbins, Sr., of Bethel Baptist Church; Pastor Verbie Swanigan, of Solid Rock Baptist Church; Brother Jason Wilson, of Christian Faith Fellowship Church; and representatives from the Wisconsin Baptist Pastors Conference. Pastor Mark Gates preached the spoken word. Deacon Charles Elim is President of the Male Chorus and the Rev. Dr. Oscar Elim is pastor.

Trailblazers speak at AACC luncheon (Continued from pg 1) so the two passions merged.” Since its inception in 2003, VHD Cosmetology Institute has graduated at least 100 students. Ms. Belton said her greatest success is the school. She concluded saying, “My school isn’t just for me, it’s for the community, it’s for those young people that need to be poured into; they need direction for life and that’s what Visions in Hair Design is endeavoring to do.” Recalling her time starting up her own salons and the institute, Belton said, “Was it easy? Was it smooth sailing? Absolutely not! But where there is opposition, where there are obstacles, there is opportunity! A set-back is really a set-up for your destiny!” She encourages others to fully discover and pursue their purpose through their passions. Owner/operator Miss Robbie Montgomery of three St. Louis-based restaurants; Sweetie Pie’s, which opened in 1996; Sweetie Pie’s at the Mangrove; and Sweetie Pie’s: The Upper Crust--opened in 2012. All are nationally acclaimed for their southern style cooking: and Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s is a television show that appears on the OWN network, a cable network operated by Oprah Winfrey. Montgomery, who was the keynote

speaker for the luncheon, shared her story with conviction and humor. She came from very humble beginnings. Robbie was the oldest of nine children. She also toured the U.S. as a back-up singer for Ike and Tina Turner in the ‘60s. “We didn’t know we were poor, we had a little of everything. My dad was a railroad man; he went and cashed his check, took out what he wanted and sent the rest to my mom. I said one day, that’s not going to happen to me. I’m not going to wait on nobody to take out their money, take out what they want and give the rest to me.” Miss Robbie didn’t wait for anybody. After she spent time helping her mother in the kitchen as a child, her dream was to open a restaurant. Miss Robbie followed her dream even when others didn’t believe in her. “You don’t know how you’re going to get there, but you’re going to get there, if you believe, because this is your dream. So, during that time when I was trying to get people to help me or loan me some money, none of that was coming through. I would go home at night and pray Lord, help me, and then I would cry because nobody believed me, nobody believed that I could do this, but me,” she said.

Her son, Tim was sentenced to 10 years in prison at the age of 17. As a mother, Robbie says she felt helpless, because she knew when he came back home, it would be hard for him to find gainful employment. With his help, they opened Sweetie Pie’s: The Upper Crust in 2012. Everyone at Sweetie Pie’s believes in giving second chances. “That’s why we hire ex-offenders and homeless people, because all they need is a second chance, they need somebody to believe that they can go straight. Some of them don’t make it, but we try. I’ve had four and five chances,” Montgomery said. She told the crowd a story her son often shares. “He said in prison they were given a number and it was impressed upon them that they would always be a number. So what I say to you today is you can be a number but be number one,” she concluded. At the luncheon, there were a host of business representatives from small businesses, like Ms. B’s salons and cosmetology institute; and major corporations such as Johnson Controls. Business owners are working to develop stronger businesses and a stronger community. The African American Chamber of Commerce’s helps business to fulfill their dreams by abiding by the mission of developing programs to strengthen and sustain businesses owned by African Americans.

nah Dugan will review the redistricting process and discuss its statewide and local impacts with city and county officials. County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic and Milwaukee City Clerk Jim Owczarski will join the panel discussion.

By Frank James IV

The easiest solution

The American government has shut down. There is a rift between the governing factions of the greatest empire of the last three centuries. The USA is facing more than the loss of ObamaCare. At stake is more than the loss of revenue from closing state parks. The good old US of A is facing the same thing Rome faced -- decline. There is one solution to avoid the slide into obscurity; give up anything that causes division. If you look at the root of many problems in the USA, you find color. Color has shaped the consciousness of this country to the point where many can’t see past it. It’s not just white versus black but brown versus beige. Many people in America identify with color and that ties them to a certain nationality. These ties to certain nationalities create division. America is supposed to be a

melting pot, so color or race shouldn’t be a concern. The cure for this divisive mentality is to give up color and nationality altogether. Identifying with color or nationality opens the door for the division thought process to take root in the mind. A beige person who feels mistreated by a black person will automatically feel slighted because of the difference in color. The same way a German person may feel slighted by a Jewish person in a similar predicament. Color and nationality create boundaries that hinder the interactions between people. Would it be easier to just see another human being instead of a black or white person? If people looked at each other in this way, there would be no division and many problems wouldn’t exist. The more diverse groups in a country means more

division. The saga in Washington has some of its basis in differing political ideologies. One side is Democrat, the other Republican. What difference does it make if the goal is to create a better place for the citizens of the USA? Do you really care if it’s a Democrat or Republican who solves the budget crisis and creates jobs? The differing parties just create chaos, animosity and keep any progress from taking place. The goal is to keep the USA strong, right? Does shutting down the government and creating hatred do this? Division isn’t just tearing the country apart on a national level; it’s doing a job in the neighborhood. The gang violence that plagues many cities and communities is an example of this. Sadly many of the violent acts aren’t from organized gangs, just people who see others dif-

ferently. The mentality that separates one group from another because of an address or clothes has led to many caskets being bought. Why not just see everyone as being a living, breathing human being? Division is running rampant in family life. Instead of a marriage being the union of two becoming one, division comes into play. Many marriages and relationships are divided into men versus women. You have a husband battling with a wife or a wife scheming on a husband. Is there any wonder divorce is the American pastime? If the purpose of marriage or a relationship is becoming one, why then are there two opinions? Sadly this type of manic atmosphere affects the children who are usually forced to take sides against one parent for another. If people just let go of

their misconceived ideologies and saw others as human beings, America may be a better place. The diversity of the country is quickly becoming the poison that is killing the nation. People are more than the crude flesh and maddening mentalities they exhibit. In order for people in the USA to reach the next level of greatness, the division and boundaries have to dissolve.

The talk By Nicole Angresano VP Community Impact, United Way of Greater Milwaukee

as if our time together, once so open and unstructured, is becoming increasingly filled with sports, homework and play dates. Between school Parenting is tough work. drop off, soccer, swimming, My son is 6 years old, and negotiating bedtimes and in the first grade. It seems monitoring TV watching

(mine and his)—sometimes it feels like we are on fast forward all day long—and then it starts over again. We make time to talk, though. Lucas asks more questions than Jeopardy’s Alex Trebek. Last week,

90% OF TEENS SURVEYED SAID BEING ABLE TO TALK TO THEIR PARENTS ABOUT

Nicole Angresano at an unnamed superstore, he asked me –LOUDLY— “Mom—how old do I have to be to kiss a girl that isn’t you?” I took a deep breath, and answered him as sincerely as I could: “46.” And let’s be serious—that was not a hard question. But he asks those, too, just like your kids do. The tough questions range from topics about bodies, babies, love and families to everything in between. As his mother, I do the best I can to answer each and every one. I have to, because if he doesn’t get the answer from mom or dad—he’s going to seek it elsewhere. And often, those other sources—Johnny from up the street or Wikipedia— don’t really cut it, do they? And the MYTHS? Oh, my. The amount of false information floating around is staggering—and the internet makes it even worse. We address this in our newest public awareness campaign, focused on empowering parents to have factual information so they can be the first and best sexual health

educators for their children. Kids who feel like they can talk with their parents about sex are less likely to engage in high-risk behavior as teens than kids who do not feel they can talk with their parents. The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy released survey data in a report called “With One Voice” (2012). Believe it or not, youth said that it is parents who most influence their decisions about sex—more than friends or peers, TV or popular culture, or coaches or teachers. And, once again, teens reported that they would welcome more conversations with their parents about sex and avoiding teen pregnancy. So whatever your child’s age, it’s very important that you talk with them about sex— and not just once, but many times, over many years. Easier said then done, right? For most of us, talking about sex isn’t easy under any circumstances—let alone when the conversation is with our children. Luckily, October is Let’s Talk Month, a national observation of the importance of parent-child communication about sex, and there are tons of great resources out there for parents. Here are a few of my favorites: Baby Can Wait Parent Portal: On this site you can find United Way of Greater Milwaukee’s Let’s Talk Month Toolkit, available in English and Spanish, for talking with your kids about (Conitrnued on pg. 5)

Ominous clouds of deceit, injustice hang over the $82-million West Lawn Housing Project

United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Serve Marketing launch provocative “Sex Myth” ads Campaign debunks common myths, promotes dialogue between parents and teens

Staff Photo

Last week, this community witnessed a press conference called by Milwaukee Inner City Congregations Allied for Hope (MICAH) to shame the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM) for its failure to implement rules promulgated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) which mandate contractual and hiring opportunities for black and other minorities, which didn’t happen in the first phase of demolition and construction of new townhouses and apartments in the first phase of the West Lawn

Housing Project. This situation of denying blacks and other minorities employment and contractual opportunities didn’t just start with the West Lawn Housing Project. It’s a continuation of benign neglect, which began centuries ago with our black forefathers who came to this country and were bruised and battered, yet they survived despite conditions of outrageous oppression, which still exists to this day. Will this situation occur again? We believe it will. And we should be about the business of not allow-

ing it to happen again. We should demand that anyone doing construction in the black community hire black employees and provide contractual opportunities to our people. We don’t believe a black construction firm can go into any other community working in predominantly white neighborhoods without something being said. We should demand no less. And if necessary, we need to protest and sit down at construction sites where no contracts have been let to black contractors or black men and women working.

Economic solution lies within Letter to the Editor In his run and recall campaigns for Governor, Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefishch, a former small business owner herself , constantly declared that “Wisconsin is Open for Business”, touting brownbag lunches, relocating businesses from Illinois and sponsoring listening sessions with small business owners all across Wisconsin. Sadly, a large number of African American businesses have been struggling to stay open. We have not taken hold of the steering wheel which could guide our destiny. Blacks have been labeled, and perhaps rightly so, as the biggest, most loyal consumer in America. In April 2013, Journal Sentinel columnist James E. Causey wrote about the plight of black businesses in our community. “I’m not saying that blacks should patronize only black businesses – that’s unrealistic – but imagine what inner cities, like Milwaukee, could gain if even half of that money blacks spend stayed within the community,” he wrote. That money he is referring to is from a 2010 article titled, “Buying Black – the Ebony Experiment,” where author James Clingman Jr., wrote that $850 billion that moves through black consumers’ hands each year, but 90 percent of that amount goes to businesses owned or

Dester Martin controlled by non-blacks. Apparently, this notion has reached others in foreign lands. In droves, shortly after reaching these shores, others set up shop on our corners and directly in our neighborhoods, where we have no problem spending our hard earned dollar. What sort of things must run through young black minds when they saunter down to the corner store and do business with someone of another descent and, perhaps more and more impressionable, to see adult blacks in the store performing menial tasks. Little do they know the solution to our economic current situation and future progress lies within us. The social business development and affirmative action agenda haven’t worked for the African American business community for the last 35 years. Our blackowned businesses have disappeared, gone out of business or folded into a diversity support position for large corporations. While visible signs of de-

terioration persist like in Milwaukee and Detroit, city jails are over crowded, school drop outs, large foreclosure rates, and poverty appears out of control. There are Fortune 500 companies in Milwaukee, such as Johnson Controls and We Energies, which have large departments for diversity, with more dollars going to the department than to the African American businesses. We Energies has a large African American client base. Johnson Controls has the largest state dollar volume with a worldwide position; however African American business dollar values are low there, as well. I tip my hat to the Milwaukee Inner City Congregations Allied For Hope (MICAH) group for their research and efforts for job and business development regarding federally funded projects, most recently the West Lawn Housing project, which was a $82,000,000 development. They have challenged the leadership positions in power. Let us stop pointing the finger at and railing against others. The solution to setting a bent situation straight lies within us, with organizations like MICAH and challenging these issues in the black community. We need to take the reins for our own progressive leadership and business growth. Dester Martin, Founding Member, African American Chamber of Commerce

United Way of Greater Milwaukee, in collaboration with Serve Marketing, launched a provocative new campaign on Tuesday, October 8, 2013, that will deliver a strong message to parents of teen and pre-teen children – if you’re not talking to teens about sex, someone else is. The campaign, titled “Who’s Teaching Your Child about Sex?” is designed to start that conversation between parents and youth about sex and the many myths surrounding teen pregnancy. The campaign features kids proliferating many sex myths, and depicts them spreading throughout a school without any attempt to debunk or call into question the validity of the myths. “The campaign is a wakeup call to parents, urging them to take control of the conversation,” explains Nicole Angresano, Vice President of Community Impact for United Way of Greater Milwaukee. "Though it may seem hard to believe, and even silly, these myths are out there and young people believe many of them. We want to make sure our youth are getting accurate information and we know parents are the best source for that. Parents should be their children’s first and primary health educators, and we want to give them tools that will help them answer tough questions.” The integrated campaign kicked off with a strong, interactive social media and online component that includes videos and an online quiz. Teens and parents will be directed to a website created by Serve Marketing for the campaign, www.GetThe-

SexFacts.com where they can take the Sex Myth quiz, view the videos, share them with their own friends through social media and get access to more information. There is also an interactive YouTube site where teens and parents can take the quiz; http:// youtu.be/vNAQAAv47PA. "The average teen spends more than five hours a day online and the kind of misinformation they're getting about sex is frightening," notes Serve Creative Director Gary Mueller. "We wanted to use social media to combat these myths because that's where the conversations are happening. And at the same time we want to open the eyes of parents to what their kids are learning online." Mueller and Angresano are hoping teens and parents alike will share the content with their networks to create greater awareness of the importance of these types of conversations. Other elements of the campaign, including bus shelter ads and television spots will roll out throughout October in support of Let’s Talk Month. The multi-pronged campaign is the latest tactic in the United Way-led Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative. Milwaukee’s teen birth rate is currently at a historically low level. City of Milwaukee health officials say the current trend indicates that Milwaukee should be on track to reduce the teen birth rate by 46 percent by 2015, a goal which was set by United Way of Greater Milwaukee, the Center for Urban Population Health and the Milwaukee Health Department in 2008.

Discovering my true self in Africa

By Tony Farrell

Meeting my African family After having arrived in Po with Jonas Yogo the farmer, we started making stops at many different places. At these stops, we greeted the people. I soon came to learn that outside of the city, everyone greets everyone on arrival, on leaving, and even when passing. This greeting is a sign of respect for the individual and acknowledgement of coming into the presence of another person. It is done with a handshake, hello, direct eye contact and often a small bowing and a simple smile. Everyone was greeted in this manner – men, women, children, elders, clean, dirty, black skin or white skin. It was very warm and friendly and made me feel extremely welcome; I knew these people were glad I was with them. Because I was not used to so many greetings, it was not long before I began to feel somewhat exasperated by dozens upon dozens of greetings in many different places over a short period of time. Soon enough however, I was thoroughly enjoying all the love that was being willingly poured out on me, and was readily reflecting it back. Together they were all like long lost family welcoming me home. Jonas and I sat with a group of men at a tiny village restaurant for lunch. It seemed like it was just someone’s residence where the local people knew they could go buy a meal; there was no signage. Not being able to speak French or their native language, I was unable to communicate verbally. Therefore, I noticed many small details I may have otherwise missed. There were two sets of tables and chairs under a large mango tree providing shade. There I was offered a Coke® or Fanta®, and I learned a whole routine regarding beverages. For example, nobody drank directly from the glass bottle. Instead, a small amount was poured into a cup to wash the bottom and then dumped on the ground before being filled again. The cap was kept on the bottle, and a small coaster covered the cup to keep bugs and dust out of it. I had some trepidation regarding urinating because the custom was not clear

to me, and Jonas explained “going to the corner” to me. I watched him go first, and then I followed after. I noticed that the pigs liked to sit on the ground right where our urine drained out of the pipe in the wall. Our lunch was very laid back; mostly we just sat there together and enjoyed the company and the day. I also learned hand washing routines used before and after eating, where each person assisted the person sitting next to them. A chicken was butchered and cooked fresh for us, and it was served with a hot pepper spice and some vinegar for flavoring. The bones were thrown on the ground where the pigs that had been rolling in our urine came right up to our feet and ate them. It was all so rustic and raw; I could not help but smile with appreciation. Our next stop was Jonas Yogo’s farm nearby, where I would learn intimately about his own vision for a better life in Burkina Faso. To be continued next week with “A Vision For Rural African Prosperity” Tony Farrell started his current business venture, Farrell Marketing Technology LLC, in April of 2011. Over his lengthy career as an information technology entrepreneur, he has worked on tens of thousands of computers and helped dozens of business to have smooth running, efficient computer infrastructure and great looking web sites that generate more business through search engine optimization. In February 2012, Tony began intensive organic farming on a small scale in his living room, including vermicomposting and aquaponics systems, and he completed Growing Power’s Commercial Urban Agriculture program in May 2012. Tony is currently enrolled in the Milwaukee-based Victory Garden Initiative’s Food Leader Certificate Program and Permaculture Design Certificate Program and is building a local for-profit microgreen production business called Farmer Tony’s Mission Greens. Tony recently returned from a three week agricultural mission trip to Burkina Faso, marking his first foray into international work. This series tells the story of that journey.

Rebuilding our Community

By Dr. Andrew Calhoun, Ed.D. Special for the Milwaukee Times

An Affordable Care Act “Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away.” This is one of the notable quotes the leading character, played by Will Smith, makes in the movie “Hitch.” Just such a moment occurred on October 1, 2013, when it became official that over 43 million uninsured Americans could begin to sign up for health insurance, even with pre-existing medical conditions. This new law is better known as ObamaCare. As you are aware, maintaining a good health insurance plan for yourself and your family is essential to improving and extending one’s quality of life. Those with a great insurance plan are truly blessed, while those who are struggling to make ends meet find it quite difficult to afford any health insurance at all. However, even for those with good health plans, there are financial limits within those plans and not covered by the standard insurance premiums. Over the years, health insurance companies have always set risk limits on various medical conditions and what would be covered for those who become ill. And if and when those coverage limits were reached the ongoing costs to cover those future medical bills would have to be paid by the individual or family. In many cases those with high risk medical conditions would be dropped

from future policies with the same company, face restrictions or much higher future premiums. If and when a family finds themselves dropped from a policy, then the task of finding another health insurance carrier is nearly impossible. All health insurance companies do not want to take on the risk and the cost of providing a level of care for an individual or family that has pre-existing medical health issues. The pre-existing medical condition occurred before a program of health benefits when into effect. In most of these situations, families have been left high and dry, saddled with enormous debt, unpaid medical bills, losing their homes, wiping out their life savings and reducing the ability to enjoy any quality of life. Offering a great health insurance package and other family benefits was once the hallmark of major compa-

nies. They prided themselves on maintaining a quality workforce, longevity, loyalty and good working conditions. However, today many of those kinds of companies, both private and public, have reduced those kinds of benefits and more. Today, it is more about the bottom line and not the workers who keep the company profitable. It been a long time coming. Numerous US presidents have tried and failed to get something like this in place, but now it is official… Health Care for the most vulnerable individuals and those families that have experienced a health care crisis that has left them without any coverage at all… it is now available and affordable.

The Counseling Corner By Rev. Judith T. Lester, B.Min. M.Th

National Domestic Violence Abuse Month (Week 2) Domestic violence — also known as domestic abuse, battering or intimate partner violence — occurs between people in an intimate relationship. Domestic violence against men can take many forms, including emotional, sexual and physical abuse and threats of abuse. It can happen in heterosexual or same sex relationships. It might not be easy to recognize domestic violence against men. Early in the relationship, your partner might seem attentive, generous and protective in ways that later turn out to be controlling and frightening. Initially, the abuse might appear as isolated incidents. Your partner might apologize and promise not to abuse you again. In other relationships, domestic violence against men might include both partners slapping or shoving each other when they get angry

— and neither partner seeing himself or herself as being abused or controlled. This type of violence, however, can still devastate a relationship, causing both physical and emotional damage. The Mayo Clinic indicates the following signs of domestic violence if your partner: • Calls you names, insults you or puts you down. • Prevents you from going to work or school. • Stops you from seeing family members or friends. • Tries to control how you spend money, where you go or what you wear. • Acts jealous or possessive or constantly accuses you of being unfaithful. • Gets angry when drinking alcohol or using drugs. • Threatens you with violence or a weapon. • Hits, kicks, shove, slaps, chokes or otherwise hurts you, your children or

• Justifies abuse by telling you that you’re not “really” gay, bisexual or transgender. • Says that men are naturally violent. Domestic violence against men can have devastating effects. Although you may not be able to stop your partner’s abusive behavior, you can seek help. Remember, no one deserves to be abused.

your pets. • Assaults you while you’re sleeping, you’ve been drinking or you’re not paying attention to make up for a difference in strength. • Forces you to have sex or engage in sexual acts against your will. • Blames you for his or her violent behavior or tells you that you deserve it. • Portrays the violence as mutual and consensual. If you’re gay, bisexual or transgender, you might also

be experiencing domestic violence if you’re in a relationship with someone who: • Threatens to tell friends, family, colleagues or community members your sexual orientation or gender identity. • Tells you that authorities won’t help a gay, bisexual or transgender person. • Tells you that leaving the relationship means you’re admitting that gay, bisexual or transgender relationships are deviant.

Bulletin Board Growing, successful Interfaith-MPS Tutor program seeks more volunteer tutors

As the growing and successful Interfaith-MPS Tutor Program stays on track to expand from 50 MPS elementary and K-8 schools in 2012-13 to 71 in 2013-14, MPS and Interfaith Older Adult Programs are seeking more volunteer tutors.

Many MPS middle and high schools will offer open houses.

community commitment we all have for academic success in the district,” Lisa Bittman, Interfaith’s Executive Director said. Volunteers should be 55 years old or “better” and must be willing to commit to spending 90 minutes per week in a classroom throughout the academic year. Tutors receive training to maximize their effectiveness when working with students – and spend the year working in the same classroom. Tutors interested in volunteering should contact Robyn Wohlfeil of Interfaith at (414) 220-8657.

Anonymous benefactor donates rackets to Bay View girls’ tennis team In the Milwaukee Public Schools, Rufus King has had the championship girls’ tennis team for many years, winning the city championship every year since before many of the current players were even born. They were the subject of a feature in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last month, earning welldeserved praise. Because Bay View English teacher Michael Schinner coached the last team to beat King, in 1996, he was also quoted in the story, talking about how King’s program compared to the teams he fields at Bay View: “I appreciate that they are the first ones to acknowledge that they are playing with a stacked deck when it comes to competing in the City Conference,” Bay View coach Mike Schinner said. “It has been a number of years since I have coached a tennis player at Bay View who owned her own tennis racquet. It is a bit intimidating when the King girls pull out a $180 Babolat racquet out of their Babolat tennis bag that they own and my Bay View player is playing with a beat up racquet that her coach takes out of his car’s trunk. “They also don’t deal with the high student turnover that other city schools deal with. They often have the luxury of working with their athletes for four years. It is rare that I coach a girl for two years. The girl who was my No. 1 singles player and team captain last year, and I was counting on this year, moved to Atlanta last spring. That is tough for me to overcome, but even if that happens at King they have other capable experienced players to replace a girl who trans-

Senior Amy Sanchez fers; most of the other city schools do not.” A few days after that story appeared, though, Mr. Schinner was called down to the front door of the school, where he was presented with a box–a box of four highquality Babolat tennis racquets in Babolat tennis bags. It turns out an anonymous donor–reports say it was a woman, but she did not leave her name–had read the story of King’s tennis team and had been moved by Mr. Schinner’s description of the challenges he faces as a tennis coach at Bay View. There was a card inside the box, which read in part, Dear Mike, I read the Sept. 25 Milwaukee J.S. article where you were quoted. It brought a lump to my throat. I hope you can find some players who can use these racquets. They are used but in pretty good condition. … Good luck on the courts! Mr. Schinner was stunned to find the gift. “We no longer go into battle outgunned and under-equipped,” Mr. Schinner says. “My players would never have the opportunity to use a racquet of this quality without this generous donation.”

Talking Health with Dr. Carter

By Dr. Lester Carter Owner, Carter Drug Store

Healthy blood pressure (part 2) Heart disease, cardiovascular disease (CVD), is the leading cause of death for all Americans age 35 and older. This means men and women among all racial and ethnic groups. According the Centers for Disease Control, over 600,000 people died of heart disease in 2008, 25 percent of all deaths. In other words, one in four Americans died of heart disease in 2008. Among those with heart disease, 32 percent are known to have high blood pressure (HBP) or hypertension. HBP damages the blood vessels, weakening and robbing them of their inherent flexibility. This can result in heart attack, congestive heart failure, stroke, blindness, and kidney failure. Called “the silent killer” because symptoms are so subtle, even moderately elevated blood pressure is associated with a shortened life expectancy. High blood pressure is a major health problem in the U.S. The CDC estimates that 1 in 3 U.S. adults – about 68 million – has high blood pressure. In 2008, HBP was listed as a primary or contributing cause of death for

more than 347,000 Americans. African Americans are especially susceptible, and are one of the most likely ethnic groups in the world to receive the diagnosis. HBP has also been diagnosed in twothirds of Americans over 65 and in a growing number of young adults and children. Self care Although considered incurable, at its base, HBP is the result of unhealthy lifestyle choices. Overweight; diets high in salt, fat, and alcohol; smoking; chronic stress; persistent exposure to toxins; and sedentary habits are all contributing factors. Correct any of these and the result is healthier blood pressure readings. Correct all of them and improve health exponentially. Of course, the changes must be maintained or the numbers will go back up. “While some people need drugs to lower their blood pressure, millions can do it through diet,” says Norman Kaplan, MD, the nationally known blood pressure expert. Eating an ideal diet not only lowers blood pressure but restores damaged blood

vessels, kidneys, hearts, eyes, and brains. Kaplan agrees that whole, fresh, and lively foods are the basis of a healthy diet. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially leafy greens; grains and legumes; nuts and seeds; low fat or no fat dairy foods; lighten up on meat and put deep water fish on the menu at least once a week. This diet ensures high fiber intake, increased beneficial fat and decreased saturated fat, and a beneficial mineral balance. For many, weight loss comes automatically. Consistently recommended by Nutrition News, these foods mirror the original DASH diet, developed for the NIH by a world class team of doctors and nutritionists. The first DASH study involved 459 individuals (8,800 applied), sixty percent of whom were AfricanAmericans. In the amazing results of the 12 week study, reductions in blood pressure occurred in the first week, stabilized within two weeks, and remained low during the remaining weeks. Losing weight is another

Study says healthy eating benefits heart failure patients Low-sodium diet lowered high blood pressure after 3 weeks Healthy eating habits can significantly reduce high blood pressure and improve heart function in heart failure patients, a new study says. The study included patients, most in their 60s and 70s, who ate only meals that were prepared for them in the kitchen of the University of Michigan Clinical Research Unit. The meals, which could be picked up and heated at home, followed the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet eating plan, which is high in potassium, magnesium, calcium and antioxidants. The diet is recommended for high blood pressure treatment by the American Heart Association and the U.S. National Institutes of Health. The diet used in the study also contained a daily sodium intake of 1,150 milligrams or less, which is much lower than American adults’ typical intake of about 4,200 mg a day for men and 3,300 a day for women. “Our work suggests diet could play an important role in the progression of heart failure, although patients should always talk to their doctor before making major dietary changes,” Dr. Scott Hummel, a cardiologist at the University of Michigan

Frankel Cardiovascular Center, said in a university news release. “We’re excited to confirm these results in longer-term studies that also help us understand the challenges patients face when

they try to improve their eating habits,” he added. Heart failure means the heart can’t pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs.

positive effect of a fresh food diet. This is sometimes the only thing people need to do to bring blood pressure levels to normal. Even a loss of ten pounds can make an improvement. Although HBP does not necessarily follow a weight problem, overweight people are three times more likely to have it than normal weight individuals. In fact, obesity is a key factor in 60 percent of all cases of HBP. In the US, weight increases with age. By age 74, half of us have high blood pressure. In societies where weight does not increase with age, neither does blood pressure. A natural diet also implies greater fiber intake and the use of vegetable-based (rather than animal-based) fat sources. Diets with high fiber and low fat have been shown to have benefits in reducing blood pressure. In addition, studies show high fiber diets to be effective in preventing and treating many forms of heart disease. Further, the presence of soluble fibers in the body clears the blood of toxins such as lead and cadmium, both higher than nor-

mal in persons with HBP. A wholesome diet is also low in sodium and provides sufficient potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Denatured foods like sugar, hydrogenated fats, caffeine, and white flour are avoided. These substances activate the stress response, using up nutrients and weakening the body’s ability to recover from common stressors. Beyond diet, other lifestyle changes can improve the result. Of course, smoking is out. Not only is it a major heart disease risk factor, nicotine actually constricts the small blood vessels and thickens the blood, directly affecting blood pressure levels. Additional helpful behaviors are learning relaxation techniques, exercising regularly, and taking nutrient supplements. Continued next week: Magic Minerals

I experienced psychological abuse through the eyes of a child -- part of the stories I share in “Believe in the Magic: Let the Tenacity of Mattie Fisher Inspire You,” (www.mattiefisher.com), the story of my mother’s remarkable journey. I watched as my father systematically and maliciously attempted to drive my mother crazy. He would constantly move car keys and other items from the places she normally kept them. He would then pretend to find them in odd places, like the refrigerator. After playing the 2801 E. Morgan Avenue, Milwaukee hero for a month or so, my father would start insulting my mom with degrading remarks. After months of psychological warfare, with her mental state sufficiently weakened, my father would begin the physical abuse. For the rest of her life, my mother was inconsolable and shaky whenever something went missing. Signs of psychological abuse include: • Your partner uses finances to control you. • He often threatens to leave. • Seeks to intimidate using looks, gestures or actions. • He smashes things. • Your partner seeks to control you by minimizing, denying and blaming. • He makes light of the abuse and does not take your concerns about it seriously. • You are continually criticized, called names and/or shouted at. • She emotionally degrades you in private, but acts charming in public. • He humiliates you in pri-

Personal Finance & Business

By Jason Alderman Director of Visa’s financial education programs

Lower income? Don't pass up the saver's credit In 2002, Congress passed legislation to create an income tax credit designed to encourage lower- and middle-income people to save money for retirement. The saver's credit, worth up to $1,000 a year for individuals ($2,000 for couples filing jointly), rewards people for contributing to an IRA or 401(k) plan. Regrettably, the people most likely to benefit from the saver's credit are also those who can usually least afford to set aside money for retirement. It doesn't help that only one-quarter of people earning less than $50,000 even know the credit exists. But if you can squeeze a few dollars out of your budget, the saver's credit is worth pursuing. Tax credits reduce the amount of income tax paid, dollar for dollar; so many low-income people can recoup the amount they contribute to retirement accounts by up to 50 percent through reduced taxes. And those whose employers match a portion of their 401(k) contributions reap even bigger rewards. Another good selling point: Parents or grandparents who want to jumpstart their low-income kids' retirement savings can fund their IRA or 401(k) contribution, thereby making them eligible for the saver's credit even if they can't afford to contribute on their own. Here's the nitty-gritty on the saver's credit: • The saver's credit is a "nonrefundable"tax credit, which means it reduces income taxes owed, dollar for dollar – although it won't generate a tax refund if the credit is more than the taxes you owe. • The saver's credit helps offset part of the amount you voluntarily contribute to an IRA or 401(k) plan. Your credit amount is based on your tax filing status, adjusted gross income and the amount you contribute to qualifying retirement programs. It can be claimed by: • Married couples filing jointly with adjusted gross income (AGI) of no more than $59,000. • Heads of households with AGI up to $44,250. • Singles (or married filing separately) with AGI up to $29,500. The credit rate is 10 percent, 20 percent or 50 percent of the first $2,000 you contribute ($4,000 for married couples filing jointly), depending on your AGI; the lower your AGI the higher

the percentage. For example: • Single filers with an AGI up to $17,500 receive a 50 percent credit on the first $2,000 they contribute (i.e., up to a $1,000 credit); 20 percent on AGI up to $19,250 ($200 credit); and 10 percent on AGI up to $29,500 ($100 credit). Anything over $29,500, you don't qualify. • For joint filers the credit amount limits are: 50 percent on up to $35,500 AGI (50% X $4,000 = $2,000); 20 percent on up to $38,500 ($800); and 10 percent on up • You can't be claimed as to $59,000 ($400). a dependent on someone Other eligibility rules: else's return. • You must be at least age • You can't have been a 18. full-time student during any

It's a little extra bookkeeping, but could be worth the effort. Saving money for the future is never easy, especially when you're struggling to pay daily bills.

“The Rejected Stone” by Reverend Al Sharpton swers. You wanted someone to show you what to do. You needed a leader. So why can’t it be you? In the new book “The Rejected Stone” by Reverend Al Sharpton, you’ll see how it could happen.

c.2013, Cash Money Content $22.00 / $26.00 Canada 272 pages The directions didn’t make any sense. They came with diagrams, but that didn’t help. Online information was no better, you were making a mess of things, and about ready to scream. You needed clarification. You needed simple an-

Every once in awhile – especially when he’s somewhere unexpected – Reverend Al Sharpton looks around, surprised and pleased. He’s been working for social justice and civil rights since he was nine years old, and there are many things he never thought he’d see in his lifetime. He admits that he’s come a long way since his Tawana Brawley days. He’s lost weight and gained insight, changed his outlook and his mind on issues. He’s become a leader because the Black community needs more of those. Great leaders, he says, don’t become leaders by accident. They know where they’re going and they know how they’re going to get there.

They don’t let their past deter them; they don’t blame their childhood or neighborhood for their shortcomings. They understand that successful African Americans became successful because of community, not family. They listen to the giants of history; they have mentors and they mentor. Leaders are true to themselves, but they understand that they must be “different, better, more” than those around them. They know their own strengths and don’t pretend to be something they‘re not. They’ve defined themselves, they ask for what they need, and they aren’t afraid to “be big.” Successful leaders, he says, are all-encompassing. If you are against injustice, then you must be against all injustice. It’s “hypocrisy” to pick and choose. To be a leader, you must focus and commit to a cause. You must understand that religion isn’t something you

Rev. Al Sharpton merely preach, it’s what you practice. And, to be a leader, you must know when it’s time to quit. In all that author Reverend Al Sharpton has done in his life, considering the people he’s known (Michael Jackson and James Brown, for example, both of whom he writes about at length), and the issues that have made

him front-page news, who would’ve expected wide-eyed amazement at his current life? Yes, that’s what you’ll see in the first chapter of “The Rejected Stone,” and it’s good. From his roots in Brooklyn to his current activism, Sharpton weaves his own experiences in with advice on becoming a leader, reaching for one’s “blessings,” and being an agent for justice. Readers may be pleasantly surprised to see humility here, too; Sharpton occasionally writes with what seems like hindsight tinged with regret, which truly adds to the magnetism of his words. I liked that; I liked the lighter, no-nonsense tone of this helpful, easy-to-read book; and I think if you know someone with potential – teen or adult – it’s what they need: “The Rejected Stone” could be a push in the right direction.

Evelyn Patricia Terry with her one of many mixed media artworks, "Magic is Dream Stacking," will be showing at LightHorse 4041 on Gallery Night, October 18th, from 6 pm – 9 pm. The artwork will be exhibited through Sunday, October 20th. The event will be held at 4041 North Oakland Avenue and is open to the public. Please visit evelynpatriciaterry.com for more images.

FAMILY FEATURES

B

risk autumn evenings call for warm, homemade meals that bring the family together around the dinner table. Dishes that deliver savory flavors are sure to win over their hearts, as well as warm them. If your taste buds call for a fall classic, cuddle up with a piping hot bowl of chili. The sweetness of brown sugar complements the blend of fresh garlic and Italian sausage in this recipe for Chiliville Chili. Because it’s made with Johnsonville Italian Ground Sausage, you can customize the robust flavor of this dinnertime staple by picking your favorite of the mild, sweet or hot varieties. The best part — it’s all natural with no fillers, artificial flavors or colors, so you know you’re feeding your family the best. For more recipes, visit www.johnsonvillekitchens.com. Warm up the family with their favorite Italian dishes that feature the bold and savory flavors of Johnsonville Ground Sausage and Sausage Links. You can’t go wrong with this kid favorite for Easy Sausage Pizza, which is served up without the hassle and fuss of standard homemade pizza recipes. Grab the garlic bread and, please, don’t forget the Parmesan. You’ll need them for these delicious recipes for Italian Sausage Rigatoni, Italian All Natural Ground Sausage Lasagna and Italian Meatballs.

Savory Sausage Additions

For those looking to add more flavor to their meals, head over to the sausage section at the local grocer. Here are some great tips and reasons for adding this hearty, bold protein to your family’s favorite dishes: n Swap for spice Add more flavor to your favorite meat meals by replacing half the ground beef with ground sausage. n Go for convenience For those looking for added flavor without the hassle, go with ground sausage. Since there’s no need to remove the casing it has added convenience. n Find your flavor Many ground sausages come in additional flavors, so pick your favorite. Look for hot, mild or sweet varieties of ground Italian. n Choose an affordable option When compared with other meats, ground sausage saves consumers money with more consumer-friendly pricing.
