The last of a dying breed

Christian Fellowship Church presents its annual African American History program

WMCS-AM (1290) announced last week that due to a business decision, they were changing formats and call letters to WZTI Martini Radio – geared toward “mature” adults, primarily those over 50 years of age. WMCS talk radio had a 20 year-reputation in Milwaukee of being the voice and center of information for the black Sherwin Hughes community. This huge shock is a lost voice of outreach and opinion for the African American community, which now leaves WNOV-AM 860 as the last of a dying breed in talk radio for our community. WNOV morning show host, Sherwin Hughes, 38, uses the Twitter handle @sherwinagain and has been on air for the station for the past 8 months. He understands that the departure of WMCS from the community is an opportunity that yields “a tremendous responsibility that I take with great honor,” Hughes said. “I will do my best to be fair and objective on issues.” Hughes is a political consultant; he works on political campaigns and educational policy. He has a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in sociology. “I want to provide listeners with a more global perspective, and bridge multi-generational differences,” he added. Moving Photo by Willie Mitchell forward, Hughes said he plans to be at more events in the th community and participate in more activities. “I will do as The Congregation at Christian Fellowship Community Church, 2176 N. 39 Street, held its annual Black History program on Saturday, February 23, 2013 much listening as talking,” said Hughes.

at 4:00 p.m. The program theme was “The First Shall be Last and the Last Shall be First.” The guest speaker was Vincent P. Lyles, president and CEO Last week Governor Walker said, “I’d of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. Special guests who were focus on things that improve the qualpresent and made remarks included County Supervisor Russell Stamper, II; ity of life in the city of Milwaukee.

streetcar. Employers, employees, residents, business owners and visitors alike will be able to take advantage of this new, modern way to get around Milwaukee.” State and local government have different views on the proposed streetcar but many in the African American community share similar views as Governor Walker. Rep. Sandy Pasch (D-Milwaukee) said, “While the economic impact of improving transit in Milwaukee is undeniable, two miles of street car in Milwaukee’s central business district won’t directly benefit neighboring communities with large African American populations.” Alderman Nik Kovac (3rd District) challenges Gov. Walker’s statement by adding, “We have to start somewhere – and that’s in the densest part of town for jobs and people, and if we don’t start somewhere, we’ll never get anywhere. Ultimately, the streetcar will help everyone who rides public transit; think of this as the spine of the bus system.”

Double-take on Fire and Police Commission nominee

The controversy and delay in the appointment of Ann Wilson to the Fire and Police Commission (FPC) was “due to the Common Council injecting politics into the Fire and Police Commission, and we try to avoid that,” FPC FPC executive director Michael Tobin said. Historically, for mayoral appointments the Common Council has always had the authority to hold public hearings on any mayoral appointments to the Ann Wilson Fire and Police Commission but “up until Ann Wilson, they never did that,” Tobin added. Several weeks after Wilson was nominated, the Common Council confirmed the community activist in late February after Mayor Tom Barrett re-nominated her. (Continued on pg. 2)

Governor cleared in John Doe investigation

Gov. Scott Walker

Nearly three years after the secret John Doe investigation began into “misconduct related issues ranging from to campaign finance fraud to embezzlement,” DA John Chisholm said in a statement, the investigation ended up bringing charges on six individuals who made plea deals with the prosecution. Three were former Scott Walker aides, while he was Milwaukee County executive. “The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office follows a policy of filing charges only where it believes proof beyond a reasonable doubt supports the allegations in a criminal complaint. "After a review of the John Doe evidence, I am satisfied that all charges that are supported by proof beyond a reasonable doubt have now been brought and concluded,” Chisholm said. Governor Walker said that he was pleased that the investigation was over so we can move forward.

Common Council approves jobs act

The Common Council enabled the Milwaukee Jobs Act to take two more significant steps toward putting city residents back to work Thursday, February 28, 2013, approving funding that increases the number of positions in the LEAP program and dramatically expands the Neighborhood Ambassador program. “The Milwaukee Jobs Act continues to make a difference in the lives of city resi-

dents who have been affected the most by the economic recession,” primary sponsor Alderman Ashanti Hamilton said. “I’m grateful to my colleagues on the Common Council and Mayor Tom Barrett’s administration for the support that has enabled this young program to become so successful so soon.” “Expanding LEAP will further increase our base of skilled workers and prepare more young people for the

workplace, giving them the skills and confidence they need to be job ready,” said Alderman Willie C. Wade, one of the creators of the LEAP program. Participants will also receive assistance with resume writing, job skills and with applying for jobs online. Applications for the positions will be accepted through March 31, 2013.

Inquest into police custody death of Derek Williams

An inquest jury in Milwaukee County recommended that charges be filed against three Milwaukee police officers in the July 2011 police custody death of 22-year-old robbery suspect Derek Williams. Williams died gasping for air in the back of a squad car; the jury concluded that the officers, Richard Ticcioni, Jeffrey Cline and Jason Bleichwehl, failed to render aid, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of nine months in jail. This is a big step in the process, as inquest verdicts are only advisory. The decision to file the charges is up to special prosecutor John Franke.

COMPEL to celebrate National Black Marriage Day COMPEL will join more than 300 cities across the country in celebrating National Black Marriage Day on March 17, 2013. For the last three years hundreds of couples were nominated to be honored. Joining the celebration were partners, families, friends, and the faith based community. The theme this year is "Marriage Changes Things".

This is a very exciting year with guest speaker Roland Warren, CEO of Care Net and former president of National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI). Knowing your commitment to this community I am requesting your assistance come be a part of event, and past this information on to your family and network. If one believes "It takes a

village to raise a child", then one has to acknowledge it takes a village to destroy a child as well. Go to our web site for more information; www.compelmilw.org.

Sequester showdown in Washington

Stepping down from the fiscal cliff we all heard about in 2012 and the beginning of 2013, Congress has now put the country in another drama-filled tailspin called a “sequestration or sequester.” Sequestration is mandated, automatic budget cuts - we’re talking about a cool $85 billion split between domestic and defense areas. President Obama and some Republicans in Congress are unable to agree on alternatives to reduce the debt. What does the sequester mean to you? Well, the average American may not feel the pinch for weeks or months to come. But according to Whitehouse.gov, the impact on Wisconsin could be huge. According a White House fact sheet, Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for approximately 900 children in Wisconsin, reducing access to critical early education. Wisconsin will lose about $661,000 in funding for job search assistance, referral, and placement, meaning around 23,120 fewer people will get the help and skills they need to find employment. Locally, more than 6,200 federal employees in Milwaukee County could be affected.

The silent race – District 2 Milwaukee county board supervisor

Less than 30 days away is a general election for what some are calling the “silent race” in Milwaukee’s District 2 for County Board Supervisor. This election in District 2 for a nonpartisan seat is special election because the seat was vacated by Nikiya Harris – who began her term in the Wisconsin State Senate in January. The top two candidates that will be squaring off in the April 2, 2013 general election are Ravae S.M. Sinclair and Khalif J. Rainey. Others that ran in the race were Penny Sikora, a county bus driver; and Walt Love, a former radio personality and construction worker. Ravae S.M. Sinclair is a graduate of Marquette University Law School and served in the Wisconsin State Public Defender’s OfficeMilwaukee Trial Division. Khalif J. Rainey is an aide to Rep. Gwen Moore – a Democrat from Milwaukee.

A little reminder about life insurance. A curious little reminder.

Hard fought battle for the Wisconsin high court On the ballot for the April 2, 2013 spring primary election is another hot and expensive race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Justices serve for a term of 10 years. Incumbent Pat Roggensack’s term expires at the end of July. She is being challenged by Ed Fallone, a Marquette University law professor. Roggensack captured 64 percent of the vote in the primary election. According to campaign finance records, Fallone has about $65,000 in the bank compared with Roggensack, who has almost $220, 000.

Rebuilding our Community

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

Let’s build it! The beautification that one sees or seeks in any neighborhood all began with an idea or dream of what was possible. Given the time to grow, develop and to mature to its full potential only further ensures that great ideas occur when people shared the vision. The transformation that transpires reflects the common belief that change is possible and is required to keep things moving forward for the next generation. Transformation is when there is a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance. It is also known as metamorphosis. In realistic and clear terms, when people work together in the community and are compassionate about making something positive happen…change always materializes. It is taking the present situation or moment as it exists…envisioning the future…and setting plans in motion to make it come to life.

A game changer In the movie Field of Dreams, Kevin Costner plays the role as Ray Kinsella, a novice farmer who is struggling to pay the bills of the farm and to keep his family going, hears a voice while walking in the midst of his cornfield, that says, “if you build it, he will come!” As the plot of the story begins to emerge, he builds a baseball field in the midst of the corn field and soon some infamous baseball players from the 1919 Black Sox scandal emerge from the surrounding corn field to play on the ball field. At the beginning, only a few people are able to see these players. However, by the end of the movie, countless number of people come to the baseball field, can see the players and watch the game. Because of his faith, perseverance and belief in making it happen, Ray is able to not only save his farm, but also restore the hopes and

Being Frank The world turns, football's over and it’s almost baseball season. The politics of the nation continues to be a cesspool and crime is still a major problem. But how are you? How are you doing, dear reader? How is your life going? Do you know your life’s path? If so, is the path one of your choosing? It’s been said that the average person spends 90 percent of his time worrying about other people’s business. That business may be in the form of gossip about peers or family. Many people spend the majority of their waking hours worrying about the state of the USA. Vast amounts of people spend their time focusing on the entertainment world via sports or movies. But how are you doing, dear reader? Do you know? Anyone can criticize people whether they know them or not. How many can criticize themselves? The easy way in life is to criticize rich people who you’ll never meet. But does this form of criticism make you feel better? How do you feel when you do this, dear reader? How are you feeling now? What are your thoughts and what makes you think them? Many say if you know the origin of thoughts you will have the

One of the key lines in the movie came from another character, Dr. Archibald “Moonlight” Graham of the 1922 New York Giants, played by Burt Lancaster. He only played in one game, but never got a chance to bat in that game… he said later, “We just don’t recognize life’s most significant moments while

they’re happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there’ll be other days.' I didn’t realize that was the only day.” Now is the time Likewise, some of the most significant moments for urban neighborhoods are today. It is a time for change, for tomorrow is never promised. Change always affects people, where they live, work and play… change is about life and making the best of what you have to work with. It is about the unending process… and it moves on regardless of one’s stature or status in life. Urban America is in need of game changers, people who want, can and do make things happen, regardless of scale or size. They are optimistic about a neighborhood future regardless of the odds. Their can-do and get-it-done attitude in the face of unbelievable odds, misfortune and adversity is what sets them apart. They enjoy taking on challenges and taking “lem-

ons” and making some “lemonade.” These are transformative leaders, dreamers, and visionaries. They see what is possible and do not care who gets the credit as long as the results are realized. All great cities that are actively engaged with its residents in building great neighborhoods invest in their people for positive change and growth. A true change to believe in and a change that is worthwhile and sustainable. So while we are at it … let’s tear up some old attitudes, break down some walls of indifferent, remove barriers to collaboration and start building new communities of inspiration, hope and prosperity. So… I say, “Let’s build it! Our urban neighborhoods of dreams and see who comes!” For feedback you can contact Dr. Calhoun at email: andrewiiicalhoun@gmail.com, Facebook, twitter: AC53, http://whatdoesitlooklike.blogspot.com/ or 414-571-5015.

key to piece of mind. Let’s look at your thoughts. Where do you get your thoughts? Are your thoughts harmonious or are they petty and vindictive? Do your thoughts bring a smile to your face or a scowl? A good number of people harbor resentment for things done to them in the past. This brings angry and bitter thought to their minds. Is your mind consumed with perceived past slights? If it is and these thoughts of past grievances aren't making you feel happy why are you thinking about them? In ancient Rome the rulers used the gladiator pit to keep the population from realizing how pathetic their lives were. Is this tactic being used on you dear reader in modern day America? Is their anything wrong with allowing your mind to be diverted in order to stay sane? No. But this leads back to the question, how do you really feel? Do you feel that your life is just a monotonous trek back and forth to a job? Has your life become the epitome of suffering because of a lackluster relationship? If so why have you allowed this to happen? Why do the majority of Americans care so much about other people’s lives?

How are you? Could the answer be because they feel their own lives are nothing? Is this the reason many people live their lives through sports teams, political parties, or Hollywood? What are your feelings about your state of mind? Do you even take the time to look at your state of mind? More importantly, do you have a state of mind and if so is it of your creation? The path you have chosen in life, was it your choice? Many people do what society dictates when dealing with both occupational and personal choices. Are you doing what you want to do or are you just doing what Mama feels is right? While you are doing what you do, how do you feel? Are you feeling happy and harmonious with the world and yourself ? If you aren’t maybe it’s time to re-evaluate yourself. The same amount of energy used to talk about others should be applied to the creation of a new you. The only life that matters is your own and how you feel should be number one on the agenda. Frank James IV © 2013 beingfrankwithfrank@ gmail.com The opinions expressed in this editorial are those

The Counseling Corner

BY REV. JUDITH T. LESTER, B.MIN. M.TH

Following Jesus on the mountain and in the valley (Week 2) Have you experienced the glory and presence of the Lord on one hand, only to have to battle sin, brokenness, disappointment, discouragement, challenges, loneliness, pain, fear, anxiety, and worry on the other? At those times you may find yourself questioning the validity of the work that God had begun in your life. What I love about the encounters that Moses had with God is that God not only spoke to Moses on the mountaintop but God also spoke to Moses in the valley. Moses was told by God how to deal with pain, disappointment and problems he had encountered. (Exodus 32:33 cf. Exodus 33:1-5). As a result, Moses learned God is God whether on the mountain or

in the valley. In Exodus 19 Moses had returned to Egypt, dealt with Pharaoh, seen God use him in mighty ways to send plagues on the Egyptians; Moses witnessed the parting of the Red Sea and ultimately led the people out of Egypt on their way to the Promised Land. Moses had come a long way since his first mountaintop experience; but he still had a long way to go. Moses knew what it meant to be on the mountaintop. Exodus 24 records that “Moses went up on the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. The glory of the Lord dwelt on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days… Moses entered the cloud and went up on the mountain. And Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights” experiencing the presence and glory of

it was a reminder we have a choice to follow God or remain on the path of eternal ruin and destruction. It is a willful decision and it must be made personally. As we continue to journey toward Calvary and the triumph resurrection of Jesus from the grave, remember the choice is yours. Have you decided to follow Jesus? God. (Exodus 24:15-18). But Moses also knew the anguish of the valley. He came down off the mountain carrying the two tablets that God had given him only to find the Israelites had “made for themselves a golden calf, worshipped it… and sacrificed to it.” Moses was so distraught and enraged that he “threw the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain.”

Moses stood at the gate of the camp and asked “Who is on the Lord’s side.” Those who were on God’s side came near to Moses while the others who had chosen to worship the golden calf remained where they were. Three thousand of those who chose to stay with idolatry died that day at the command of Almighty God. (Exodus 32). The punishment may have seemed harsh, but

MATC to host sustainabilty summit March 6-8

Vincent High School team members prepare an answer during the 2012 Black Knowledge Bowl. Teams of high school aged young people will be offered the chance to show off their knowledge of Black History at the 5th Annual Black Knowledge Bowl. The annual event will be held Friday, March 15 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Manpower Group headquarters at 100 Manpower Place in Downtown Milwaukee. Twenty-two teams of youth have registered to take part in the daylong event that will focus on how spoken word and music both reflect and influence Black History. Presentations will be made by spoken word artists and the youth will engage in the

creation of their own spoken word pieces and collages that address Black History. The Black Knowledge Bowl will also test the teams on their knowledge of different aspects of Black History. A tournament style competition will quiz them on areas like Africa, Education & Government, Literature, Discovery & Industry, and Milwaukee Black History. The Black Knowledge Bowl is intended to recognize youth for their knowledge, expose them to cultural enrichment activities and foster self-confidence. By staging the event at Manpower Group headquarters, it also

Local MDs answer questions about sight-threatening macular degeneration Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of central vision loss in Americans age 50+. Although it affects white people more than blacks, a study in East Baltimore showed that AMD was the third leading cause of bilateral (both eyes) blindness in blacks after cataracts and glaucoma. Whatever the risk rate, it is important to know that AMD can affect quality of life, independence and happiness. Selfeducation, prompt diagnosis and advanced treatment are key to protecting your vision and lifestyle. The ophthalmologists at Eye Care Specialists help our readers by answering the following questions. What is macular degeneration? “AMD is a condition in which the macula, a highly sensitive area of the retina responsible for central and detail vision (about the size of this “O”), is damaged. There are two forms of AMD. Both cause loss of central or straight-ahead vision (as needed for driving, reading and recognizing faces) but, fortunately, not side vision,” explains Daniel Ferguson, MD, a partner at Eye Care Specialists, where thousands of AMD patients are diagnosed and treated each year. “’Dry’ AMD is more common (90 percent of cases), progresses slowly, and is caused by a thinning of macular tissue. ‘Wet’ AMD is less common, can progress quickly, and is marked by the growth of abnormal new blood vessels under the macula, which can leak fluid and blood. This leakage can create scar tissue which causes blind spots and profound loss of sharp central vision. The earlier it is detected, the better the chances of preserving vision.” Who is most at risk for AMD? Brett Rhode, MD, private practitioner in Milwaukee and West Allis and Head of Ophthalmology at Aurora Sinai Medical Center, explains that although the exact cause is unknown, the following are culprits behind AMD: • Aging • Circulatory problems • Heredity • Light eye color • Race (white ethnicity) • Smoking (increases risk 3-4 times) • Gender (being female) • Sun exposure • A diet high in fat and low in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants How fast does sight deteriorate? “Dry AMD usually does

not cause rapid vision loss, and many patients retain good sight throughout life. Others may need to use magnifiers and aids. Wet AMD tends to cause a rapid and profound loss of sharp central vision, which may result in legal (less than 20/200 vision), but not total, blindness (because some side vision remains). Without treatment, about 70 percent of wet AMD patients become legally blind within two years,” states Ferguson. What are some of the warning signs for AMD? AMD usually develops gradually and painlessly, and good vision in one eye can mask problems in the other. As AMD progresses, however, signs may become obvious. If you suddenly notice any of the following symptoms, see an eye care specialist as soon as possible. • Difficulty reading or doing close-up work • Faces, clocks and printed words appear blurry • Distortion of lines, colors, sizes and edges • Straight lines in a landscape appear wavy •Blind spots (dark or empty spaces) in the center of vision “Don’t assume you simply need new glasses and then wait to make an appointment. A comprehensive eye exam is necessary to evaluate the presence, type and severity of AMD and whether or not treatment would be beneficial,” advises Mark Freedman, M.D., a leading local eye surgeon, continuing education lecturer, and partner at Eye Care Specialists. What treatments are available? Rhode explains, “If dry AMD is diagnosed, we may recommend vitamin supplements, healthy omega fatty acid intake, sun protection, and avoidance of smoking, as measures to prevent or slow progression. If wet AMD is diagnosed, we review the risks, benefits and candidacy for injections of special medications (Avastin, Eyelea or Lucentis). These revolutionary drugs inhibit growth of the abnormal blood vessels that cause wet AMD.” He adds, “Although there are NO guarantees, we have seen remarkable results with injection treatment. In the past, there wasn’t much we could do. But, with regular injections (about every 4-8 weeks), we are able to stop the progression of wet AMD in 90 percent of our

patients and even have up to 30 percent gain improvement in vision.” (Injections are also used to treat diabetes-related vision damage.) What else can be done if you have AMD? “Besides following your eye care specialist’s treatment plan, you can utilize low vision aids (handheld and closed circuit TV magnifiers, telescopic devices, talking books, etc.), contact support/transport services, and learn new ways to perform activities. These steps will help you stay indepen-

dent and productive,” notes Freedman. Are there any tips for preventing vision loss? “Sight-robbing conditions often develop gradually and painlessly, and good vision in one eye can mask problems in the other,” explains Daniel Paskowitz, MD, PhD, an eye care specialist with credentials from Harvard and Johns Hopkins. “A professional eye exam is the only way to accurately detect eye diseases.” Paskowitz recommends the following steps to protect vision:

• People age 40-64 should have a thorough dilated eye exam every 2-4 years and every 1-2 years after age 65, especially if you have a parent or sibling with an eye condition, like AMD, glaucoma or diabetic eye disease. • If you notice a problem with your vision (especially straight lines appearing wavy or blind or dark spots) don’t ignore it. Call your eye specialist immediately to see if you should come in for an exam. • Wear sunglasses and hats with brims. Prolonged or frequent UV-light exposure may be a factor in developing AMD and cataracts. • Avoid smoking. Smoking can increase the risk of AMD by 3-4 times, as well as raise other eye disease risks. Second-hand smoke is also a threat to vision. • Proper nutrition and supplements. Although highdose combinations of vitamins and minerals cannot cure AMD or restore vision, studies show they may be key to protecting existing vision. (Continued on pg. 14)

Highlights from the 2013 Black Excellence Awards

13

Stay on-target and come back home By Peggy Schulz Special to the Milwaukee Times Staying on the right path, acknowledging your support, especially when it’s God-given, acting as a voice to the voiceless, and coming home – these were common themes for many of those honored at the 28th Annual Black Excellence Awards on Friday, February 22, 2013. Steve Pemberton, the keynote speaker, also echoed those sentiments in his remarks at the event. Whether the award recipient was near 70 or just 17, the ideas that were shared for how to live a blessed life were both simple and profound. Lynda Jackson-Conyers, in closing remarks, described the Milwaukee Times Weekly Newspaper as “celebrating black history as a weekly event.” Brenda SheppardNelson, principal of LaFollette School, described the Black Excellence Award winners as “the essence of our community, not just examples of excellence.” Louvenia Johnson Scholarships of $1,000 each were presented at the dinner to 14 high school seniors. Louvenia Johnson was one of the founders of the Milwaukee Times Weekly Newspaper. The scholarship fund was established in her name in 1988 to recognize her outstanding contributions to community journalism. Each student scholarship winner also received a laptop computer at the dinner, courtesy of Reid’s New Golden Gate Funeral Home. Lorna Piggee, mother of

Carter Piggee, one of the Louvenia Johnson Scholarship winners, related that she and her husband, Dennis, “have always instilled values and learning in our children. We kept him [Carter] on the path to be successful.” His parents are very proud of what Carter already has achieved, and hopeful for more. Carter expressed his desire to create a cycle in which African-American men continue to return to Milwaukee to help strengthen the community. Josephine “Josie” Scott, another scholarship winner, is on the path to becoming a pharmacist. Upon hearing of Josie’s plans, Steve Pemberton, the keynote speaker, who is Vice President/ Chief Diversity Officer for the Walgreen Co., rushed to give Josie his business card, apparently hoping her path might lead her to work at Walgreens someday. A third scholarship winner, Jordan Taper, shared his hope that a career in music will allow him to inspire young people in the community – yet another example of a young person already on a positive path to not just personal, but also community, success. All of the Louvenia Johnson Scholarship winners are not only excellent students. Each of them also has taken the time to already give back to the community through volunteer work at a variety of service agencies. Just as Carter Piggee talked about working to create a cycle of coming home, a number of (Continued on pg. 18)

Talking Health with Dr. Carter Time to weigh in (part 3) In a fully functioning body, leptin sends signals to the brain that reduce hunger, increase fat burning, and reduce fat storage. Surprisingly, this hormone is produced by our fat (white adipose tissue). That's right. That stuff we think we don't want is not inert. Although it does serve as padding, insulation, and fuel storage, that's just the beginning. This week we continue to look at resensitize ourselves to leptin as well as to insulin and adrenaline as we achieve our "right weight", by using the 3 most popular diet methods by Doctors Richard, Richard, and Rosedale.

the body can metabolize. Too many carbohydrates confuse the natural ebb and flow of leptin. For example, too many carbs at lunch can cause ravishing hunger at dinner. More importantly, an excess of carbs keeps the body from going to its fat reserves for energy, which is how we got into this overweight problem in the first place. Plus, excess carbs are easily stored as fat. The Richards don't concur with eliminating dense carbs altogether. Saying that when an insufficient amount of carbohydrates is eaten, fat is not burned efficiently and one is dissatisfied after eating, they recommend a "50/50 technique". Have a palm size piece of protein and match it with a starch. In other words, when eating a meat or other protein food, eat about the same size serving of bread, rice, potatoes, fruit, or dessert. (If you are going to eat dessert, skip the heavy starches in the meal- bread, rice, potato. Otherwise, have only a bite of dessert.)

When you read their books, you will find that Dr. Rosedale does allow a very low carb sprout bread which is helpful. Otherwise starchy carbs and certainly sugary foods are a big no-no for the first 3 weeks of his plan. Rosedale reminds his followers that his diet is a high good fat diet (avocados, nuts, olives, olive and coconut oils), and he supplies great recipes. The first 2-4 weeks put your body into transition, 'unlearning' how to bum sugar and 'leaming' how to bum fat. He adds, "Once this transition happens, you'll notice your hunger decrease and your energy

will skyrocket. The transition period may vary, but EVERYONE gets better, no exceptions." Although carbs are essential, this need does not have to be satisfied by starchy carbs - as anybody who has ever experimented with Atkins knows. Both plans include all the non-starchy veggies you want. Here is an easy way to determine if your daily carb intake is too high. Weigh in before breakfast and then again before you go to bed. Compare. If you weigh over two pounds more than your morning weight - and you have followed Rules 1-4 then, you've eaten too many carbs that day. 5.) Eat 3-4 meals a day and do not snack or eat carb free meals and snack when hungry. Here is the Great Divide. The Richards prefer that you eat 3 meals, one every 5-6 hours. (They relent for those of us who can't do that and we eat every 4 hours.) They point out that grazing is counterproductive to having our goal

4.) Reduce the amount of carbs eaten. Here we begin to see the parting of the ways in the two plans. The Richards recommend that you cut back on starchy and sugary carbs, not cut them out. Oppositely, Rosedale's plan is to avoid them altogether for the first 3 weeks. This may seem unnecessarily strict, but the truth is that Americans eat double the amount of carbs that

weight. This is because during the first three hours after a meal, insulin is in charge of storing the calories from the food we have eaten. They point out that even low calorie snacks stimulate insulin release (not to mention that waiting an hour after a meal to eat dessert creates a huge insulin surge). In this case, fat burning either ceases or never getsstarted in the first place. But what about non-insulin stimulating snacks? Rosedale points out that hunger is the greatest human drive and that one must eat when hungry. He then directs us to eat very low glycemic snacks, so insulin doesn't get started in the first place. Nuts of all kinds, olives, avocados, veggies like celery, broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower eaten with nut butters or dip are very satisfying and help break the sugar craving cycle.

Cancer rates dropping among black Americans But they’re still more likely to die from the disease than whites, study finds A new report finds that cancer rates among blacks in the United States are on the decline, especially among black men, and the improvement may have saved almost 200,000 people from dying of the disease since the early 1990s. Still, blacks continue to be more likely to die of cancer than whites, and researchers say they don’t have a good handle on why. There are many possible explanations, everything from genetics to choices about health to the treatment of blacks in doctor’s office and differences in wealth and education. In the big picture, “it’s the good news, bad news story,” said report author Carol DeSantis, an epidemiologist with the American Cancer Society. Despite the positive numbers, she said, “the AfricanAmerican community is still unduly burdened by cancer. They have the highest death rates [for many types of cancer], poorer survival and are more likely to be diagnosed with advanced stage disease.” Specifically, the report found that: • Black males are 15 per-

cent more likely than whites to get cancer and the most common cancers are prostate, lung, colon, kidney and pancreas malignancies. They’re also a third more likely to die, even though their death rates have been declining faster than white men, largely because they’re smoking less, DeSantis said. • Overall, black females are 6 percent less likely to get cancer than whites, but their death rate once they are diagnosed is 16 percent higher. One of the problems is that they’re more likely to get an especially deadly form of breast cancer. “AfricanAmerican women get breast cancer at a lower rate, but they’re more likely to die from the disease,” DeSantis

said. • Colon cancer is about 22 percent more common in blacks than whites, and death rates are roughly 50 percent higher. Researchers say this is because blacks have more risk factors, are screened less often and are typically treated differently. • The good news: Cancer death rates have declined since the early 1990s by 2.4 percent a year for black men (higher than a 1.7 percent annual decline among whites), while they’ve gone down by about 1.5 percent a year for both white and black women. Dr. Dalliah Black, a surgical oncologist at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, said it’s difficult to figure out

the causes of the differences in how cancer affects whites and blacks. She said biology may play a role, along with differences in how doctors treat patients of different races. Skepticism among blacks about the medical profession could be a factor, she added, “but I don’t think it’s as pervasive of a feeling in the AfricanAmerican community as in the past.” What to do? Black said more cancer screening is crucial, and “there’s a lot of room for improvement in increasing public awareness about cancers that can be treated. That can translate into improvement in survival,” she said. The report appears in the Feb. 5 issue of the journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians.

THE

Personal Finance & Business

17

By Jason Alderman Director of Visa’s financial education programs

Avoiding tax refund identity fraud Many people file their income tax returns as early in the year as possible. Some are eager to claim their tax refund right away, while others are simply following their New Year’s resolution not to procrastinate until midnight, April 15. Let me add another good reason to file your taxes right away: tax refund identity fraud. That’s where someone uses your Social Security number (SSN), birth date and other private information to file a fraudulent income tax return in your name and then pockets the resulting tax refund. Often, a victim’s first clue is a letter from the IRS contesting their legitimate tax return, saying one has already been processed under that name. It can take months – and mounds of paperwork – to unravel the mess. This scam has proliferated

in recent years thanks to a confluence of events: • There’s a thriving black market in personal information stolen from healthcare facilities, nursing homes, schools, insurance companies and other institutions that require an SSN as identification. • The IRS is pressured to begin issuing refunds shortly after taxpayers start filing returns in mid-January, even though employers and financial institutions aren’t required to submit withholding and income documentation until the end of March. Thus, disparities often aren’t caught until months later. • The growing popularity of electronic filing, where hard-copy documentation (like W-2 and 1099 forms) isn’t required. • Many people receive refunds via direct deposit and prepaid debit cards. Crimi-

nals open and close accounts using bogus addresses long before the theft has been detected. Thanks to severe budget cuts and chronic understaffing – not to mention constantly playing whack-a-mole with thieves who dream up new schemes – the IRS is hard-pressed to keep up. In one extreme example, the agency issued more than $3.3 million in refunds for 2,137 tax returns filed to a single address. But all is not lost. The IRS

has significantly beefed up its fraud-prevention efforts. In 2011, they intercepted nearly 262,000 fraudulent tax returns seeking almost $1.5 billion in refunds related to identity theft. And they now issue special personal identification numbers (PINs) to impacted taxpayers to protect their future tax filings. So what should you do if you’ve been victimized? Typically, the IRS will send you a notice that: • More than one tax return for you was filed; • You have a balance due, refund offset or have had collection actions taken against you for a year in which you didn’t file a return; or • IRS records indicate you received wages from an employer you don’t recognize. This could indicate that someone has used your personal information to get a job.

If you receive such a notice, don’t ignore it. Complete an Identity Theft Affidavit (IRS Form 14039 at www.irs.gov) and return it with a copy of the notice to the address provided on the notice. If you did not receive a notice but believe you may be at risk, the form contains separate submission instructions. The IRS’s Identity Theft Protection website (www.irs. gov/uac/Identity-Protection) includes tons of helpful information, including ways to tell whether your identity may have been stolen, how to report a breach and tips to avoid identity theft. And finally, file your tax return as early as possible to beat potential scammers to the punch. If you owe money, you can always file your return now and mail the payment by the April 15 deadline.

When retiring together doesn't make sense And finally, if your plan is to have one spouse continue working for a while, try living on only that one salary for a few months before retiring as an experiment. This

By Jason Alderman Back when people from my parents' generation were first planning their lives together, most married couples looked forward to working hard for a few decades, buying a house, raising a family and then retiring together while they still had enough money and energy to travel and pursue favorite hobbies. Some couples do manage to pull this off and thrive; but for many others, any of a host of obstacles can block their ability to retire at the same time. For example: Thanks to periods of unemployment, home-value decline or 401(k) account loss suffered during the Great Recession, many couples simply don't have enough money to retire together comfortably. If there's a significant age difference, one spouse may not have accumulated enough Social Security credits to qualify for a benefit by the time the other is ready to retire. Women often worry that the couple hasn't saved enough since they're statistically likely to survive their spouses – often for a decade or more. One spouse must continue working to supply employerprovided medical coverage until both reach Medicare eligibility age (65 in most cases). One spouse is just hitting his or her stride, career-wise, and isn't ready to slow down. Among couples who have

managed to save enough to retire together, when it comes time to pull the trigger many realize they haven't fully agreed on where or how to retire; or they discover that their wishes have diverged over the years. This can put tremendous strain on a marriage if you're not willing to compromise and talk things through. Long before you actually retire, ask yourselves, should we: • Downsize to a smaller dwelling or even move to a retirement community? • Sell the house, buy a trailer and live like nomads for a few years? • Move to a warmer climate or to be nearer our grandchildren? • Move to a state with lower taxes or cost of living? • Start a small side business to keep money rolling in? • Are we finished supporting our children financially? Even before asking those tough questions, you already should have begun

estimating your retirement income needs. Social Security has a helpful online Retirement Estimator that can help (www.ssa.gov/estimator). After you've explored various retirement scenarios, consider hiring a financial planner to help work out an investment and savings game plan, or to at least review the one you've devised. Along with the financial impact retirement will have on your marriage, keep in mind that this may be the first time that you've been together, day in and day out. Many people are so consumed by their jobs that they haven't taken time to develop outside interests and hobbies. Well before retirement, you and your spouse should start exploring activities and networks of friends you can enjoy, both together and independently. Consider things like volunteer work, hobbies, athletic activities or even part-time employment if you miss the workplace interaction and need the money.

will give you an inkling of how well you'll do financially and whether you might both need to keep working to amass more savings.

adults at the awards ceremony noted the cyclical nature of success, that the young people present could look to the Black Excellence Award recipients sitting in the same room as role models for their adult lives. Erik Conner, principal at Clarke Street School, one of the presenters of the Louvenia Johnson Scholarship Awards, was a first-time attendee at the Black Excellence Awards ceremony. “From my perspective, the student awards help to highlight some of the positive things going on in America, young people who are going to be our leaders next year. A lot of times,” Conner said, “a lot of hard work goes unnoticed.” He was very grateful to be part of this recognition

nurse who treated him compassionately when he was beaten by his foster parents, a high school teacher who took time to encourage and support him, and a woman – a complete stranger – who stopped to talk to him one day and returned later on to bring him a box of books. “They are the ones who are special,” Pemberton said, “the ones who made all the difference in my life, who helped me focus on the triumphs, not the tragedies.” Again, referencing the award winners, Pemberton said one key to their own success is that they obviously are “a bit more than dreamers, a bit more than hopers. These are people who believe,” Pemberton said, “who sacrifice something and act as advocates for others. You change generations of lives, you do God’s work.” In addition to the 35 Black

“They are the ones who are special,” Pemberton said, “the ones who made all the difference in my life, who helped me focus on the triumphs, not the tragedies… they obviously are, a bit more than dreamers, a bit more than hopers. These are people who believe…who sacrifice something and act as advocates for others. You change generations of lives, you do God’s work.” of the scholarship winners who already show so much promise for the future. Many in attendance at the awards event were encouraged by how many of the scholarship recipients expressed their intent to return to Milwaukee after college to make a strong contribution to the community that supported them as children and teenagers. In introductory remarks before dinner, Mayor Tom Barrett spoke to the fact that “the strength of this city is found in the residents. The everyday heroes are the ones who have the most significant impact on our city.” Newly-elected State Rep. Evan Goyke also touched on the “everyday” nature of the amazing contributions of the Black Excellence Award winners. “Excellence happens every day in the city,” Goyke said. Steve Pemberton, the keynote speaker, is the author of the book, “A Chance in the World.” The title comes from his childhood, when a baby sitter who learned of his circumstances, as an often unwanted, unloved foster child, wrote in his diary that he didn’t have “a chance in the world” of succeeding in life. He certainly proved them wrong. He is the first person in the 110-year history of the Walgreen Co., to hold the position of Chief Diversity Officer. Pemberton spoke of a number of experiences he had as a child, of people, much like the Black Excellence Award recipients, who “stood in the gap” for him. A

Excellence Award winners spread across 14 categories, five special awards were presented in the field of Child and Youth Advocacy, in recognition of the childhood experiences of Pemberton. Dawn Shelton-Williams talked about the importance of speaking for those who don’t have a voice. Bregetta Wilson, who, like Pemberton, also grew up in foster care, talked about her position as a community health navigator with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and “circling back to give people opportunities. It’s [her job] like breathing, it’s part of who I am as a person,” Wilson said. “I became that youth voice.” In a real-life example of many of the common themes of the evening, Tito Izard, a family physician and director of Milwaukee Health Services, was seated at the same table as Lessie Hudson. Izard thought she looked familiar and approached her. It turned out Hudson had been Izard’s third-grade teacher at Henry David Thoreau School in Milwaukee. “She [Hudson] was very supportive and very strict, to make sure we got all our work done,” Izard said. “Ms. Hudson was passionate about teaching. There were no excuses for why you couldn’t do better.” Izard has two brothers, one of whom also is a doctor, and the other is in the ministry. The 2013 Black Excellence Award winners join a group of more than 800 other remarkable individuals over the award’s 28-year history.

Our History

Remembering the "Bloody Sunday" 1965 civil rights march Vice President Joe Biden apologized twice Sunday, March 3, 2013, first to an audience in a college gym, then to a crowd at the foot of the historic Edmund Pettus Bridge. Both were gathered to commemorate "Bloody Sunday," when Alabama troopers and Selma, AL, law enforcement beat back civil rights marchers on March 7, 1965. "I feel a lot of guilt, like many in my generation, that I could have been here, I should have been here 48 years ago," he said at the Martin and Coretta King Unity Brunch on Sunday morning, saying he remembered watching the scenes of troopers and deputies shooting tear gas at the nonviolent marchers, trampling them with horses and beating them with clubs. "But I wanted my daughter (and) my sister to be with me here 48 years later." Biden said not coming to Selma to support the civil rights activists was one of the regrets in his life.

Vice President Joe Biden walks arm in arm with Congresswoman Terri Sewell and Congressman John Lewis while crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge during the bridge crossing jubilee in Selma, AL, on Sunday March 3, 2013. The vice president joined more than two dozen members of Congress, civil rights leaders, and some of the original marchers for the annual commemoration of Bloody Sunday. Before marching across the bridge,

the vice president was joined on a stage at the foot of the bridge by Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), an Alabama native who was beaten trying to cross the bridge, and Rep. Terri Sewell, a Selma native who became the first black

woman elected to Congress from Alabama in 2010. With the protection of federal troops, protesters eventually marched more than 50 miles from Selma to Montgomery. After people in the nation watched the brutal attacks in news reports, Congress passed and President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which created protection for minority voters and which activists are currently fighting to keep intact. Johnson's daughter, Luci Baines Johnson, participated in Sunday's activities. The Rev. Al Sharpton said the remembrance on Sunday was not a commemoration, but a continuation. Sharpton was one of a number of speakers who voiced concerns about what they believe to be an attack on voting rights with voter identification laws, and the U.S. Supreme Court considering the removal of a key portion of the Voting Rights Act, known as Section 5. The section requires certain states and regions with a history of voting discrimination to have the U.S. Department of Justice or federal courts preclear voting laws and maps for voting districts before they are implemented. The nation's high court heard a lawsuit last week brought by Shelby County, AL, over the provision known as Section 5; attorneys for Shelby County argued the South had changed since the law was implemented, removing the necessity of the provision. Sharpton said there are still those with a scheme to suppress other voters. Earlier in the day, Biden told those attending the brunch at Wallace State Community College that Americans "can't let their guard down" against attempts to restrict access to voting. Biden said states had passed 180 laws restricting voting, "some more pernicious than others." "Here we are, 48 years af-

ter all you did, and we're still fighting?" Biden asked the capacity crowd. "In 2011, '12 and '13? We're able to beat back most of those attempts in the election of 2012, but that doesn't mean it's over." U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told the crowd gathering for the march that the work of activists, including those who marched in Selma, made the election of President Barack Obama possible and the appointment of a black attorney general possible. Holder, the brother-inlaw of Vivian Malone Jones who was one of the first two black students to attend the University of Alabama over the objections of thenAlabama Gov. George Wallace, said the nation is not at a point where Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act can be deemed unnecessary. At the brunch, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said the removal of the provision would lead to protests. "If they remove Section 5, streets cannot hold us," he said. "We're not going back. If they remove Section 5, jails cannot contain us. We're not going back." William Bell, the mayor of Birmingham, AL, mentioned that challenge and touched on the 50th anniversary of several critical developments in the civil rights fight in Birmingham, including the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church where four young girls died. "Challenges every day are occurring," Bell said. "Now is the time to recommit ourselves (to civil rights)." Lewis, a Democrat who represents Georgia in Congress, recalled tests put up as obstacles to black residents voting and the brutal attack in March 1965. "We didn't give up. We didn't give in," Lewis said, while vowing to continue the fight and noted the accomplishments in Sewell's victory and in Selma having a black mayor. "But we're not there yet," Lewis said. The vice president praised those who marched for having "the courage to look evil in the eye, fight against it (and) never give up, knowing, believing that though the cost be high, that victory was inevitable." "We owe you a debt that can never be repaid ... but must be constantly taught to our children," Biden said. He said there is no more important moment than Selma in the civil rights movement. "You lost the battle that day, but you won the war," Biden said. He thanked the marchers, including Lewis, for "helping to liberate the soul of the United States of America."

By Terri Schlichenmeyer

“The Art of Doing” by Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield Your goals are just out of reach – as they should be. You’ll attain them someday, and that’s the day you’ll set more goals. It’s the best way you know how to operate and, looking back, you’ve been doing things that way for most of your life: set a goal, knock it down, and pounce for the next one. You know what success looks like from your office chair, but what’s it like in other industries? In the new book “The Art of Doing” by Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield, you’ll find out. In your field of work, you know what it takes to get to the next level, then to the top. You assume it’s the same in a lot of places, but what does it take to become a successful race car driver? How does one become a great major league ball player, a crossword puzzle creator, or a successful author? Sweeney and Gosfield call those people “superachievers” and, after “months of research and over 100 hours of conversations,” they noticed, despite the lack of similarity in jobs, that superachievers have ten strategies in common. Superachievers, the authors say, show dedication. They’re smart in their persistence. They know their community, they listen, and they know

c.2013, Plume $16.00 / $17.00 Canada 272 pages the power of story. They’re willing to test their theories, they never let their emotions run away from them, they’re patient, and they’re willing to evolve. Finally, they know that happiness and success are tied tight together. As for advice, from game show winner Ken Jennings: “… enjoy the crazy experience…” and follow your bliss. “Instill the ‘WOW’,” says Zappos’ Tony Hsieh. From 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin and Robert Carlock: “Good ideas come from anywhere, even from bad ideas.” Be a contrarian and grow old ungracefully. Know your values and focus on them. Love what you do. Seek out

role models at every stage of your life. Be “a madman” when it comes to detail. Remember that you truly are what you eat. Work hard and devote yourself to that about which you’re passionate. Reward talented people for risk-taking and don’t let them leave. Challenge yourself and your brain. Be likeable. As business / motivational books go, “The Art of Doing” is a quirky little thing. Authors Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield say in their introduction that they enjoyed finding and interviewing their superachievers, which is abundantly clear in every bubbly chapter. I also thought their format was fun: a short bio, followed by advice, then trivia about the person and their industry, all in just a few pages per chapter. That makes this book a bit on the lighter (but very informational) side and, despite that there are some off-thewall industries represented here, I think you’ll find it useful in many ways. This is the perfect book for those days when you wonder what it would be like to have a different job, because it gives you a peek, then a boost. So when you need exactly that, “The Art of Doing” is the book to reach for.
