Walker administration will assist city in eliminating blighted properties

Staff Photos

Governor Scott Walker visited the 2500 block on 34th street in Milwaukee Tuesday September 17, 2013 to announce a $2-million pledge of state money from the Department of Financial Institutions that will be used to help eliminate blighted properties in Milwaukee. The governor was joined by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Common Council President Willie Hines, Aldermen Bob Donovan and Michael Murphy, Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn, State Representatives Evan Goyke and Mandella Barnes, along with other state and city officials. Before making the announcement of support, the governor spoke briefly with

two residents who reside in the 30th Street Corridor Redevelopment Zone after which he walked slowly on the sidewalk and chatted with Willie Hines whose aldermanic district he was in. The governor lauded Mayor Barrett for initiating an $11.7-million fund in the city’s next budget that will target boarded up and abandoned properties. Earlier in the year the Gov. Walker vetoed a $3.5-million provision in the state budget that was intended to demolish foreclosed homes in Milwaukee over the next two years.

Possibilities of a new direction for county transit system By: Raina J. Johnson Special to The Milwaukee Times Since 1975, Milwaukee Transport Services (MTS) has managed the transit system here in Milwaukee County. At the beginning of August, County Executive Chris Abele issued a press release answering some general questions about the management of that transit contract and why the management services were put up for bid in April 2013. County Executive Abele is looking to get the most value, accountability and service for taxpayers, riders and the public. In the past decade, transit has seen fares increase and routes cut. Putting the management out to bid does not commit us to any specific provider, but it allows us to ensure that

transit service is sustainable for decades to come. It is not certain if it will be decades, but the County will have options: section 2.2 of the RFP, states that “the initial term of the agreement will be not less than three (3) years with an option by Milwaukee County for two (2), one-year terms. Communications Director of MV Transportation, Inc. Nikki Frenney said, “This contract gives the County protection, so if someone isn’t doing well, they aren’t stuck with them for 38 years; that also challenges us to make sure that we’re doing a good job. We made the decision that MV Transportation would not make any profit on this contract for the first two or three years.” (Continued on pg. 3)

County transit (Continued from pg. 1) The move has its critics, though. In an op-ed piece published September 7, 2013 by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, critics pointed out that the County Executive needs to provide more transparency to the public regarding how the decision was made to have MV Transportation, Inc. run the management operations and what will become of the current employees, riders, routes, schedules and fares. MV Transportation, Inc. (‘MV’) is a Dallas, Texas based private transportation company with 16,000 employees. The African American, woman owned company was founded in 1975, and now boasts an annual revenue of $950 million dollars. They currently operate transportation services, both fixed

route (big buses) and paratransit services in 28 states in the United States, including in Green Bay, plus services abroad in Saudi Arabia and two provinces in Canada. Frenney added, “The manager from Green Bay will be the manager here; we wanted someone who understands Wisconsin, not just buses but Wisconsin politics.” According to the County Executive Chris Abele’s press release, MV Transportation, Inc. was vetted by “the Milwaukee County Department of Transportation panel of professionals who scored all the bids based on the cost, service levels and other important criteria to ensure the awardee would provide the best value to riders and taxpayers.” The release goes on to say, “Since taking office in 2011, County Executive Abele has heard numerous times from County Board Supervisors, transit drivers and riders that they are unhappy with

MCTS and the service they provide.” MV said they are committed to correcting any issues they can – within their management scope of the contract. Frenney said, “We don’t make the route decisions, we don’t make the fare decisions, the County still makes those decisions, but would we go to them and make suggestions? Absolutely! “And we would want feedback from our riders; one of the things we are known for across the county is starting Rider Advisory Groups – fixed route and para-transit. But we would want to work really closely with the police department to figure out where do we have a lot of issues on the buses, what routes – those hot spots, and work very closely with the County and the police department to beef up patrols there. All across the county, we advocate for DriveCam - DriveCam are cameras that are placed on the buses –

that are used for a number of issues – training, as well as for safety and the driver has control over that camera. We would not put our drivers or passengers at risk. We want to have open house meetings with drivers to have them come and ask us the questions directly. In these meetings, they’ll learn in the contract with the County, there are incentives for good performance and that we offer opportunity for growth.” County Executive Chris Abele’s press release echoed some of those points about drivers of M.C.T.S. “The County continues to recognize the important contribution these employees make to our transit system. Accordingly, MV Transportation, Inc. has assured the County and said publicly they plan to give preference to current employees, as well as honor all existing union contracts.” MV Transportation, Inc. has been putting their wheels to the ground

Discovering my true self in Africa

By Tony Farrell

This is definitely not Kansas After a bus to Chicago, flight to Detroit, flight to Paris, 4 hour excursion into Paris, and flights to Niger and finally Ouagadougou, I had finally arrived in Burkina Faso at around 10 p.m. The city air was really musty and warm, filled with some stench of pollution I could not recognize. We walked down off the plane onto the ground and onto a transfer bus that stood still for 30 minutes and then finally took us only about 500 feet away to the airport terminal, which was notably small and unassuming. Slowly moving through customs, like everyone else, I gave my picture and fingerprints. This triggered old thoughts of hostile environments, reminiscent of when I was booked in downtown Milwaukee many years ago. Thankfully, my mission team was with me, and their local friends who speak English had come to meet us at the airport and help us sail through customs. Leaving the airport, there were immediately people trying to sell me all manner of goods from arts and crafts to audio CDs to cellular phone cards. I would have said, “No thank you” or “I’m not interested” but I did not speak enough French to do so. On the street, there seemed to be no traffic rules whatsoever with the right of way typically going to the largest vehicle. The air quality got worse as we went further from the airport, and my lungs started to ache. It seemed like the whole entire city had been hit by all manner of bombing and

shelling, with many buildings in various states of disrepair. However, the next day I learned quite the contrary – all those buildings, hundreds of them, were not bombed out at all – they were new construction going up. The primary transportation was clearly motorcycles and bicycles, and even late at night there was all manner of them moving about rapidly. After a ten minute drive, we arrived at the guest house which was our base camp. I noticed it had solid metal doors and windows secured with steel bars. Inside we had electricity, plumbing, air conditioning, flushing toilets, showers, stove, refrigerator, and an initial ration of clean drinking water. I began thinking maybe this won’t be quite so different after all, and I slept quite well that first night. This was fortunate since I would soon wake up early to go visit a farm in the rural area known as Po with my new friend Jonas. There I would be fully immersed in the amazing culture that is Burkina Faso for the first time. I had no idea that it was going to be, for me, love at first sight. To be continued next week: “Love At First Sight” Tony Farrell started his current

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

Back to our future “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.” These were the words once spoken by Edmund Burke, a noted author, orator, political theorist and philosopher in Great Britain. Those words are ringing so true today in the 21st century as never before. The echoes and legacy from America’s past have reemerged and many of us are appalled at what we see happening. A new generation has emerged with a set of values that is reflective of a previous era. Even though we have made progress in many ways in our nation, the overarching results still remain the same. Today, this remix of values with a modern twist continues to plague the greatest nation in the world. There are no more slavery ships, trading blocks, branding irons, or whipping posts, and chains, but the tentacles of that era have reached far into this 21st century.  In her book, "Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome," Joy DeGruy Leary points out that the ongoing legacy of slavery, is physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual traumas that African people endured for hundreds of business venture, Farrell Marketing Technology LLC, in 2011. Over his lengthy career as an information technology entrepreneur, he has worked on tens of thousands of computers and helped dozens of businesses to have smooth running, efficient computer infrastructure and great looking web sites that generate more business through search engine optimization. Tony welcomes comments and feedback, and he may be contacted through his personal email address tony@farrellfamily.org

years. She further cites that the descendants had to endure ongoing trauma for another century after the Civil War. The effects of these long term traumatic experiences of de-humanization and crimes against humanity continue to impact African Americans today. In defining these experiences she goes on to say that is a condition that exists when a population has experienced multigenerational trauma resulting from centuries of slavery and continues to experience oppression and institutionalized racism. It seems to me that in order to move forward in finding some workable solutions to the many problems that exist in African American

communities today, there is a need to come to grips with our past, its history, and struggles. There is a need to talk about it, remember its lessons, and provide a day of atonement…in other words we must learn to “heal our brokenness.” Some have made it out … but the work is far from over… for there are still countless others who are still trapped in a cycle of self-destruction, self-doubt and limited opportunities. This effort requires all of us to share in helping those who are lost and can’t find their way out. The time is now… our future awaits.

Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 - Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013

Education

Bulletin Board More MPS schools are meeting or exceeding expectations on the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s school report cards, showing more students are on a path to college and career success. Thirty-four MPS schools are rated meets expectations, exceeds expectations or significantly exceeds expectations in the second year of DPI report cards, up from 29 schools in the first year. Those 34 schools served about 18,000 students in 2012-13 and are a mix of neighborhood, specialty and charter schools spanning grades K-12. The 34 schools and their ratings are: Significantly Exceeds Expectations: Fernwood Montessori School Exceeds Expectations: Academia de Lenguaje y Bellas Artes (ALBA), Honey Creek Continuous Progress Charter School, Milwaukee German Immersion School, Golda Meir School and Walt Whitman Elementary School Meets Expectations: Academy of Accelerated Learning (AAL), Louisa May Alcott School, Luther Burbank School, A.E. Burdick School, Clement Avenue School, James Fennimore Cooper School, Craig Montessori School, Jeremiah Curtin Leadership Academy, Dover School (now part of Milwaukee Parkside School for the Arts), Escuela Fratney, Greenfield Bilingual School, Hawley Environmental School, Hmong American Peace Academy (HAPA), Fairview School, Humboldt Park School, I.D.E.A.L. School, International Peace Academy (IPA – Now part of HAPA), Rufus King International School, Lowell Elementary School, Maryland Avenue Montessori School, Milwaukee French Immersion School, Milwaukee Spanish Immersion School, Morgandale School, Parkview Elementary School, Ronald Reagan College Preparatory High School, Tippecanoe School for the Arts and Humanities (now part of Milwaukee Parkside School for the Arts), Escuela Vieau and Whittier Elementary School. At the same time, fewer MPS schools are rated by the state as failing to meet expectations with that number dropping to 49 this year, down from 60 last year. However, Milwaukee Public Schools’ overall district re-

port card shows that much more work remains to be done. As a district, MPS is rated as not meeting expectations, which reflects the challenges that remain as well as the opportunities to improve academic achievement in Milwaukee Public Schools. The district has seen slight growth in reading and math achievement across all student groups over the last five years, which, in a district as large as MPS, represents a large number of students achieving at higher levels. MPS has also seen a decrease in suspensions, more schools recognized for successfully reinforcing positive behavior through Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports; and more schools recognized by the state as Wisconsin Schools of Recognition. In addition, the district is seeing improvement in critical areas that are not reflected in the current DPI report cards because the report cards are based upon older data. For example, the district has continued to see growth in student attendance through the 2012-13 school year. The most recent attendance data on the report cards dates back to 2011-12. Many district efforts are aimed precisely at the critical measures evaluated on the report card, including college- and career-readiness programs aimed at boosting academic achievement, graduation rates and closing achievement gaps; and other efforts to improve attendance rates. Key MPS initiatives for 2013-14 include: • The launch of the College Board’s SpringBoard preAdvanced Placement program in seven MPS schools: Audubon Technology and Communication Center Middle School, Bay View Middle and High School, Humboldt Park School, Golda Meir School, Milwaukee School of Languages, Morse•Marshall School for the Gifted and Talented and the Wisconsin Conservatory of Lifelong Learning.

• Expansion of the rigorous Project Lead the Way hands-on science/technology/engineering/math curriculum into three additional schools for a total of 34 MPS schools. • Exploration of additional International Baccalaureate schools following the lead of MPS’ Rufus King International School – High School Campus and Ronald Reagan College Preparatory High School, which were named the two best high schools in the Milwaukee region in 2013 by the Washington Post. • Expanded use of the Standards-Based Report Card in K-5 and K-8 schools, which helps staff, parents and students clearly identify Common Core learning expectations in each subject, and notes where students are succeeding and where assistance is needed. • Doubling the allocation of art, music and physical education specialists to district elementary schools. Those new efforts compliment ongoing reforms continuing to show promise including MPS’ Comprehensive Literacy Plan and Comprehensive Math/Sciecne Plan, both of which are aligned to the rigorous Common Core State Standards; increasing collegeand career-readiness efforts, including programming at MPS’ TeamUp College Access Centers which offer assistance in putting students on track for post-secondary success; the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program to reinforce positive behavior and improve school climate; and providing services and resources for parents at three District Parent Resource Centers located at North Division, South Division and Washington high schools.

The facts: MPS and its facilities Citizens and taxpayers in the city of Milwaukee deserve to know the facts surrounding MPS and the use of district facilities. Here are the facts: - In 2012, the Board of School Directors determined that a good use for some closed or surplus facilities, including Malcolm X, was as community resource centers which may include educational components as well as community support services. This year, MPS was invited to participate in a collaborative community planning session led by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee involving the Martin Luther King Economic Development Corporation, the Martin Luther King Drive Business Improvement District, the Milwaukee Department of City Development and the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA). This planning process validated the Board’s vision of a community center for the site. The MPS Board voted in August to move forward with that vision after months of discussion. • Since 2011, MPS has sold four school buildings, including three to successful independent charter schools— Milwaukee College Prep and Hmong American Peace Academy—and one that has been successfully redeveloped as senior housing. • Eleven charter or partnership schools are current-

ly leasing MPS sites. This school year alone, new independent charter schools are opening in five MPS buildings, including the opening of a second campus for the academically successful Carmen High School of Science and Technology. • MPS is using its buildings to expand successful MPSrun schools. That includes the 2012-13 expansion of Golda Meir School, rated “Exceeds Expectations” on the state report card, into a former middle school property and the 2012-13 creation of Howard Avenue Montessori School, in a former elementary school building. Howard is modeled after the successful Fernwood Montessori School, which also was rated “Exceeds Expectations.” • MPS is open to discussing other building options with private and public organizations for unused space the district has not identified as needing for future growth of successful MPS schools or for our charter partners. • MPS is committed to making decisions about buildings that benefit all Milwaukee taxpayers, families and students, not just one school or advocacy group. The citizens of Milwaukee deserve to have a thoughtful, comprehensive plan implemented for the buildings their tax dollars have paid for. That is exactly what we have done.

Talking Health with Dr. Carter

By Dr. Lester Carter Owner, Carter Drug Store

Seven paths to your ideal weight (part 4) Worldwide, obesity is on the rise. In the US, seven out of ten people are overweight or obese. According to an article in Obesity, Johns Hopkins researchers predict that by 2030 (one more generation), 86.6 percent of American adults will be overweight or obese. In other words, it is going to take a concerted effort from all concerned adults to transform this almost certain future. The responsibility falls especially hard on parents who need to ensure that their children grow up eating wholesome food and getting regular exercise. Cure stress The Stress Eating Cure, by Rachael F. Heller PhD and Richard F. Heller, PhD. The doctors Heller are the famous authors of over a dozen, "The Carbohydrate Addict," books. Initially, they solved their obesity by recognizing their addiction to

carbs. Later, Ms. Heller had an epiphany around her still unresolved cravings. The two researchers then worked ten years to define and solve the stress eating syndrome. "The Stress Eating Cure" is the result. Do you eat when stressed? Take the Heller test and find out. (I scored high.) The reason for stress eating lies in an imbalance in our hormones. Stress creates this imbalance, starting cravings and hunger that are virtually beyond our power to control. As the Hellers put it, "Stress-eating is not a matter of willpower. It's a matter of biology, pure and simple." With the Hellers' method, you can break the stress eating cycle, and take control of your food intake. The subtitle of the book is "Lose Weight With The Noweight or obese: Willpower solution to stress-hunger and cravings." A

big component of this method is eating breakfast. There are many studies showing a tendency for breakfast eaters to be at a healthy weight, and conversely, a tendency for non-breakfast eaters to be over-weight. A most persuasive paper was presented at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in 2008.

Maybe when the remaining snacks and meals are made up of non-starchy veggies and whole protein foods as in the Heller plan. On days when you are going out for lunch or dinner that meal becomes the Big Blowout Breakfast. Eat protein and a non-starchy vegetable at breakfast time. I'm currently following this diet. Does it work? Too soon to know, but it certainly is satisfying.

Researchers found that when the weight loss regimen inThe Stress Eating Cure cluded a BIG, well-balanced Sample Breakfast breakfast, there was a five • Plain yogurt with strawfold increase in weight loss. berries (sweetener optional) After 32 weeks, the breakfast • Toast with butter and/or eaters lost an average of 40 jam pounds versus 9 pounds for • Cheese omelet those following a lower calo• Cheese Danish rie, low carbohydrate diet. • Water, tea or coffee Wow!

Black Health Coalition Flu season is around the corner of Wisconsin to host get vaccinated to protect you and your Affordable Care Act (ACA) loved ones from flu (part 1 of 2) Everyone 6 months and forum older should get an annual Agency to celebrate their 25th anniversary with advocacy event

In keeping with their tradition of advocating for the health needs of the Black community, the Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin (BHCW) will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with a community forum on the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The event is free and open to the public. The forum will be held on Thursday, October 3, 2013 from 5:00 – 6:30 pm at BHCW, 3020 W. Vliet Street. The offering of this forum comes at an important time for the community as the open enrollment period for ACA begins on October 1, 2013. The ACA offers an opportunity for thousands of people to access affordable health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace (Health Exchanges). The initial enrollment period for ACA will end March 31, 2014. Qualifying individuals who enroll through the Marketplace by December 15th can begin receiving health coverage in January 2014. Confirmed speakers for the ACA forum include Shirley Ellis, senior advisor for Congresswoman Gwen Moore; Senator Lena Taylor; and City of Milwaukee Health Commissioner Bevan K.

Baker. Other invited speakers include Senator Tammy Baldwin and a representative for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions after the panel. In addition to the ACA forum, a community awards program and reception will be held from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. To learn more about BHCW, please visit the organization’s website at www. bhcw.org and stay up-to-date with current racial health disparities information and community health events via their Facebook page.

flu vaccine. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop an immune response. Get vaccinated now so you will be protected all season long! Now that kids are back in school, we are reminded of many things typical of this time of year—parent-teacher meetings, sporting events and extracurricular activities. This time of year should also serve as an important reminder that flu season is just around the corner. By getting a flu vaccine for yourself and your entire family every year, you can help prevent flu-related illness, missed school, and missed work. Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory disease that infects the nose, throat, and lungs and can lead to serious complications, hospitalization, or even death. Pneumonia and bronchitis are examples of serious flu-related complications. The flu also can cause certain health conditions, like diabetes, asthma, and heart and lung disease, to become worse. Anyone can become sick with the flu and experience serious complications. But even if you are healthy and bounce back quickly, others around you might not be so lucky. Getting a flu vaccine is the single best way to protect yourself and your family from this se-

rious disease. Everyone needs a flu vaccine – every year Flu viruses are constantly changing, and different flu viruses circulate and cause illness each season. The annual flu vaccine is updated each year to protect against the flu viruses research indicates will be most common. This is why everyone needs a flu vaccine every year. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each year. Vaccination is especially important for people who are at high risk for complications from flu, and for people who live with or care for someone who is at high risk. Some of those people include the following: • Pregnant women • Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old • People 50 years of age and older • People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions, such as chronic respiratory (such as asthma), cardiovascular disease (except hypertension), or kidney, liv-

er, neurologic, hematologic, or metabolic disorders (such as diabetes mellitus); • People who are immunosuppressed • People who are or will be pregnant during the influenza season • Children who are 6 months through 18 years old and are on long-term aspirin therapy • People who are morbidly obese • American Indians/Alaska Natives • People who live in nursing homes and other longterm care facilities • People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu, including: • Health care workers • Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu • Household contacts and out of home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age (these children are too young to be vaccinated) (Continued on pg. 16)

BloodCenter of Wisconsin enhancing treatments for patients with sickle cell disease Lakiesha is an Alverno College student who hopes to one day produce documentary films and travel the globe. She’s also one of 800 Wisconsin residents living with sickle cell disease (SCD). “I want to start my own production company someday,” said Lakiesha. “I don’t want sickle cell disease to stand in the way of my future.” SCD is the most prevalent hereditary blood disorder in the United States. It affects 90,000-100,000 Americans and one in every 500 African Americans. SCD causes red blood cells to take on a sickle or crescent shape, making it more difficult to flow freely through blood vessels. Insufficient blood flow to tissues can result, causing excruciating pain crises, increased infections and organ damage. Lakiesha was diagnosed with SCD at age 13, and the years that followed were difficult. “I experienced frequent pain crises,” said Lakiesha. “I was hospitalized many times.” In 2011, BloodCenter of Wisconsin’s Dr. Joshua Field

Lakiesha founded the Adult Sickle Cell Disease Clinic at Froedtert Hospital. Today, Lakiesha is one of more than 270 patients being treated at the clinic. There she receives regular blood transfusions that keep her as healthy as possible. “While I still experience occasional pain, I’m so grateful for the blood donors who have helped me feel healthy enough to manage my daily life.” The care Dr. Field provides to patients at the clinic is helping to bridge the health care gap for local adults living

with SCD. His work is changing the way patients with this disease in Milwaukee are being treated — through comprehensive, specialized care that is preventing costly emergency room visits and hospital stays. In addition, he is developing new treatment methods and bringing cutting-edge therapeutics to his patients. New treatment promises better pain management Dr. Field is leading the efforts for a Phase II clinical trial of a drug called regadenoson. Regadenoson is a promising new patient therapy with the potential to decrease the severity of painful episodes suffered by people with SCD. A Phase I safety study of regadenoson was completed earlier this year. The trial’s second phase is being conducted at treatment centers in eight major U.S. cities including Milwaukee, Boston, Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Cincinnati, Chapel Hill and St. Louis. “Sickle cell disease can be devastating,” says Dr. Field. “Therapies for the two most common complications, pain and acute chest syndrome, are very limited. Regadeno-

Regular blood transfusions help sickle cell patients like Lakiesha manage their days – and plan for their futures. Lakiesha is a dedicated student who hasn’t let sickle cell disease stand in her way. She is currently studying interactive media design, and is grateful for the generosity of blood donors who have helped her pursue her dreams.

Awareness Month. In addition, BloodCenter hopes to raise awareness of the critical need for African American blood donations. “People with SCD are less likely to experience complications if they receive blood of a type that closely matches their own,” says Dr. Field. “The best matches for individuals of African descent come from individuals of African descent because people of a common genetic heritage are more likely to Dr. Joshua Field express similar proteins on their red blood cells.” son has the potential to help Today, fewer than 3 perpeople with SCD by decreas- cent of BloodCenter’s blood ing the severity of these life- donors are African Amerithreatening problems.” can.

N95 Day clears the air about respirators

Flu season (Continued from pg. 13) For a complete list of all people recommended for flu vaccination, as well as those who are not recommended for flu vaccination, visit http://www.cdc.gov/flu/ protect/whoshouldvax.htm. Get a flu vaccine every flu season You should get vaccinated every year for two reasons. The first reason is that because flu viruses are constantly changing, the flu vaccine is often updated from one season to the next to protect against the influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. The second reason is that a person’s immune protection from vaccination declines over time so a yearly vaccination is needed for optimal protection. Yearly vaccination is recommended even for those who received the vaccine during the previous flu season. Continued next week

Head Start (Continued from pg. 10) $26.3 million grant was split between other agencies in Milwaukee, including out-of-state company, Acelero Learning Inc.; Milwaukee Public Schools; and Council for the Spanish Speaking. “We’re partnering closely with MPS, we have some Head Start children in their Oliver Wendell Holmes school and it’s working really well,” Keintz added. Last week Kohl’s CARES, KaBoom! and Next Door Foundation all joined together with almost 300 volunteers to build a playground in just four hours for the children who will attend the 5310 W. Capitol location. “Art is a really great way for children to express themselves, and to look at the world differently and create stories. The children drew pictures of what their dream playground would look like and then we took those pictures and gave them to the parents; the parents participated over a period of about a month in helping to design the playground. They were pretty excited and I think they got the playground that they wanted.” Demolition at the Capitol site began earlier this week. To enroll in Next Door’s Head Start program, parents initially must bring in proof of income, name and address verification, and health (immunization and annual physical) records. Next Door also has a variety of other programs that include a parent ambassador program, a free library, a fatherhood program and Adult Basic Education/GED program.

Tweeting, blogging, and sharing. None of these sounds like the typical Federal government awareness campaign, but this is precisely what the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is doing for its national workers safety outreach campaign led by NIOSH’s National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL). Occurring on September 5, 2013 (9/5), “N95 Day,” is a national worker’s health awareness day meant to increase knowledge of on-thejob respiratory safety and protection to the millions of Americans directly impacted by such risks. NIOSH is the federal agency responsible for the prevention of work-related injury and illness. They esti-

mate that every day, over 20 million workers –in dozens of industries— are exposed to significant airborne health risks, and as a result, almost 50,000 deaths are attributed to work-related diseases each year. Data compiled from the NIOSH’s decades of research concludes that wearing a NIOSH-approved N95 filtering facepiece respirator significantly reduces the wearer’s risk of inhaling hazardous airborne particles. The N95 Day theme, “Myth vs. Fact,” will arm audiences with the information needed to debunk common myths about respirator protection and will bring together dozens of state health departments, media partners, and various Industry and Asso-

     

ciation partners. Awareness day activities include: a live webinar, an online blog, engaging tweets throughout the day (#N95Day), an opportunity for real users to share personal stories of how their health was protected by N95 respirators, and more. Ultimately, NIOSH believes the N95 Day will be successful because the efforts

reflect the federal government’s push to develop modern and engaging ways to educate their audiences. “Workers must play a proactive role in protecting their own health and safety,” explains Maryann D’Alessandro, Director of NPPTL. “It is our job to provide them with the tools and information they need to be as knowledgeable as possible, and we really believe N95 Day will be a fun and engaging way to do this.” For more information about N95 Day, visit www.cdc.gov/ niosh/npptl/n95day.html or search the twitter #N95Day. When in doubt of a product’s certification, workers can also find helpful tools and information on the Respirator Trusted Information Page at knowits.niosh.gov.
