University law professor Ed Fallone, who is running for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice against current Justice Pat Roggensack, whose term on the court expires this year. Due to a previous commitment, Justice Roggensack was unable to attend. “The community and not just the African American community, but the whole community of our state really faces an important question and that’s why the election on April 2 is so important,” Fallone said. “It is absolutely essential when you have two

political branches that reflect the will of the majority – the agenda of the special interest, that the third branch (the courts) be independent and protect our constitutional rights,” said Fallone. He addressed many of the issues that we face across the state but are of particular concern to the African American community in Milwaukee, such as same-day voter registration, probation issues, voter ID laws and redistricting laws.

Community Brainstorming Conference (CBC) has been hosting meetings on the 3rd Saturday of every month for almost 30 years at St. Matthew CME church at 2944 N. 9th Street. On March 23 CBC hosted political candidate’s forum for the election coming up on April 2, 2013. In the interest of time, the invited guests had seven minutes to answer two questions each.

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats (SWOT) is the model that Pastors United is following to create change in the city of Milwaukee. Pastors United is a grassroots organization comprised of clergy and laypersons who are working together on five different interests which were surveyed Min. Greg Lewis as “highest priorities” from a March 16 Pastors United President, Pastors United luncheon held at Milwaukee Area Technical College. The priorities compiled from the survey are: family relationships, health and wellness (mind, body & spirit), employment, economic development and crime. These priorities are for the city of Milwaukee, the church and the community surrounding the church in order for Pastors United to set an agenda for what needs to be done and when. “Bite by bite the ant will eat the elephant,” said Pas- Pastor Nathaniel Stampley tor Greg Lewis, President Chairman, Pastors United of Pastors United at the follow up strategy and planning meeting held at Jerusalem Baptist Church located at 2505 W.

There is a lot of work to be done in Milwaukee and Pastor Lewis acknowledges that fact. “It is a resurrection season, our community is dead in many areas; we want to see a resurrection in many instances. We are here now to Pastor Teresa put forth strategies.” Thomas-Boyd Pastor Teresa ThomasMatters of the Heart Boyd from Matters of the Heart said to the group, “We know there are a lot of organizing models to follow, but we are presenting information and hopefully you can gain something and use it.” Pastor Thomas-Boyd spoke about power and organization power, including but not limited to economics and politics. “You start with something small, and then you can go big, you can take a big problem and cut it down Staff Photos into smaller pieces,” she said.

Georgia Congressman John Lewis named “Hero of History”

Senator says minimum wage should be $22 an hour

Occurs on Anniversary of Selma-to-Montgomery March

Is Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) actively fighting for the minimum wage to increase to $22? Not quite.  The Senator recently came under fire for stating that Americans would be making $22 an hour if minimum wage was directly tied into the nation's productivity increase. She also wants to point out that the minimum wage has had an extremely slow growth rate in the U.S. economy. At a hearing held by the Senate's committee on Health, Education Labor and Pensions, Warren stated “With a minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, what happened to the other $14.75?  It sure didn’t go to the worker.” Warren’s thoughts came from a 2012 study conducted by The Center for Economics and Policy Research.  The study concludes that the minimum wage would have increased to $21.72 an hour

Washingtron D.C. – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis has named Georgia Congressman John Lewis as a “Hero of History” for his role as a catalyst in the American Civil Rights movement and as a leader of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery march for voting rights. The brief ceremony Thursday, March 7, 2012 in the Congressman’s office in the Cannon Office Building came on the 48th anniversary of the march.  “Congressman John Lewis has dedicated his life to the non-violent struggle for social change in America,” Jarvis said. “The Congressman’s story and the Civil Rights story are part of our nation’s history and culture that the National Park Service keeps alive. We recognize this part of the Civil Rights story in many places, including the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail. I think it is fitting to recognize Congressman Lewis for the historic part he lived.” On March 7, 1965, civil rights marchers drawing attention to the need for voting rights legislation were at-

John Lewis tacked by state and local police officials as they crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge, an encounter that came to be known as “Bloody Sunday.” Television coverage of the brutal attack, including images of Lewis being beaten by police, awakened many across the country to issues of civil and voting rights and roused support for the movement. Two weeks later, protected by a court order and federal troops, Lewis and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., led 3,200 marchers across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. By the time the march reached

Super Saturday – Free tax prep and more Milwaukee area residents get their taxes filed at no charge and are able to access a wide range of other services on Super Saturday. Super Saturday is held by the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program at the Social Development Commission (SDC) to bring together a wide range of programs and services. The day is staged annually at SDC to make valuable services more accessible. In addition to the free tax preparation, residents were able to get at the SDC Richards Street facility a free blood pressure screening, attend a credit repair workshop by Greenpath, register for the American Cancer Soci-

ety Sankofa Project, and sign up for a checking or savings account for direct deposit of tax refunds. Attendees to Super Saturday were also able to enroll in public benefits through the City of Milwaukee Health Department. The free VITA tax service is available to residents whose annual household income is less than $56,000. Last tax season, that program filed more than 15,000 tax returns that brought back $13-million in tax refunds and credits. To learn more about the free tax program that operates through April 13, visit index/Programs--Services/ VITA.htm. Or call 414-9632694.

Montgomery four days later, the number of marchers had swelled to 25,000. Less than five months later, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965, considered by the Justice Department as the single most effective piece of civil rights legislation ever passed by Congress. Jarvis and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced the designation of the Edmund Pettus Bridge as a national historic landmark last week. The designation signifies the bridge as a nationally significant historic place possessing exceptional value in illustrating the heritage of the United States. The National Historic Landmarks Program is a cooperative endeavor of government agencies, professionals, independent organizations and individuals working jointly to identify and preserve America’s most important historic places. It is administered by the National Park Service on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior. Today, approximately 2,500 historic places across the country bear this national

Sen. Elizabeth Warren last year had it been tied into the increases seen in worker productivity—a policy that has been adopted in 1968. The study further states, even if the minimum wage got only a quarter of the pickup based on productivity, it would now be $12.25. While some are praising Warren’s arguments and support her opinion, others are giving her harsh criticism, describing her as being “clueless, out of touch” and even “delusional.” The federal minimum wage still stands at $7.25 and is not much more in most states.

Thank a public health hero – National Public Health Week is April 1-7

National Public Health Week is April 1-7, and it’s a great time to applaud the work of our public health heroes who dedicate themselves to protecting and promoting the health of their communities. In the mid-1800s, Dr. John Snow tracked down the cause of deadly cholera outbreaks to contaminated water and convinced local officials to remove the handle from a well’s water pump to end an outbreak. Since that time, public health heroes have continued to work tirelessly to protect the health of their communities. There are other examples of Wisconsin heroes. Gretchen Sampson, Polk County Public Health Officer, was recognized nationally for building community partnerships, helping health departments work on gaining accreditation, and promoting professional development for the state’s public health nurses. This year, the West Allis Health Department became the first health department in Wisconsin, and one of only 11 health departments nationwide, to achieve national accreditation status by demTwo Milwaukee area residents get their taxes done at onstrating accountability, efSDC Richards Street on Super Saturday. ficiency and effectiveness,

So when the sun comes up, you better be running,” he said. “Run toward the prize with purpose,” he added. The breakout sessions and groups were divided in number with specific participant interests. Currently, a huge focus and agenda item is the Get Out The Vote campaign for the election coming up April 2. Pastors United isn’t supporting any particular candidate but will be encouraging their members to vote along with encouraging support for the five priority areas for Milwaukee with further meetings.

Sandy's Standpoint

By: Representative Sandy Pasch, 10th Assembly District

Wisconsin's unemployment and what we're doing to make it better Recent headlines proclaim that jobless rates in the United States are at a four-year low, and I think many of us are pleased with the direction that President Obama has taken to turn around our economy. Wisconsin, however, continues to seriously lag the nation and our neighboring states in job creation. And in parts of Milwaukee, jobless rates are near thirty percent. Our communities are hurting, and this must change. I know that the people of Milwaukee and across our state want their elected officials to work on creating family-supporting jobs and to promote economic stability for our communities. The best way to do this is by taking a balanced approach, one that provides targeted relief for low-to-middle income Wisconsinites, while also making vital investments in services - such as health care, transportation, and education to help our communities. I am doing just that by working on legislation that is aimed at creating family-supporting jobs and investing in worker-training programs. The first piece of legislation, Assembly Bill 49, would strengthen what is known as

the WISCAP Skills Enhancement Program. This program works to increase the incomes of low-wage workers by providing opportunities to obtain additional skills necessary for family-supporting jobs. It emphasizes short-term, demand-driven, job-focused training, while also helping with child care and transportation costs. My legislation would increase funding for this proven successful program and enable 700 more individuals to obtain better paying jobs over the next five years. Already, the 153 graduates of this program who have acquired new jobs have an increase in annual income of $8,454 and have reported a fivefold increase in access to employer-sponsored health care benefits. I am also the author of Assembly Bill 50, a proposal that creates a work-sharing program that would lessen the impact of a business downturn on workers, employers, and the government. Under a voluntary work-share program, the employer reduces the hours of work for all employees, instead of laying-off a portion of the workforce. Workers then receive partial unemployment benefits

to compensate for the lost hours of work. It also allows employers to ramp up their production when business improves, thereby helping the economy recover more quickly. I am happy to report the Assembly recently passed a slightly different version of my bill on a wide bi-partisan vote. The third jobs bill I am working on would establish a Self-Employment Assistance program. This program allows states to use their unemployment insurance systems to help laid-off workers start new businesses and waive work-search requirements for those who are working full time to establish their own small businesses. In addition, workers also are provided a weekly allowance in the same amount and duration as regular unemployment benefits. While these bills would assist all Wisconsinites, I am especially committed to the people of Milwaukee. Governor Walker's proposed budget neglects our city and harms the many services necessary to enable job growth, such as health care, education, and public transportation. As this legislative session moves ahead, I will

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

Coming home We are a nation that is proud of its military, its rich heritage and its leadership on the world stage. We especially appreciate the men and women who have proudly served, shown great courage under fire and true devotion to duty. Words cannot fully express the deepest admiration toward these men and women, who have stood the watch and defended the values of the nation over the centuries. It is more profound when considering the number of service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice, the missing-in-action, the wounded, those who endured being a POW, and those who suffered service-connected injuries. Even more moving, which words cannot fully express the feelings of the families of the fallen; they continue each day to endure the pain of losing a loved one from military service. They rightly deserve our prayers, considerations and ongoing support. A historical view It goes without saying that the US Military is what sets the nation apart from other countries and continues to make America a world leader. The current military structure came into being in 1971, when President Richard Nixon signed a new law that ended the military draft as we knew it and put the selective service structure on standby. And after a two-year review the draft formally ended in January 1973. This resulted in what is called today an “allvolunteer force.” Since its emergence, the all-volunteer force (AVF) concept has served the nation well in times of conflict and during peace times. From Desert Storm, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq and countless other missions, today’s military with all its reserves and special units continue to

Dr. Andrew Calhoun maintain the watch. However, it also continues to have its supporters and its critics. On one side, there has been an increase in the proficiency and professionalism of the force, the number of women serving, marital status, and educational level. On the other hand, the socioeconomic status of the force shows that most recruits are coming from middle and lower middle income families, people of color are overrepresented, and there still remain restrictions on career options. A grateful nation Throughout the decades, vets have been coming home from long deployments, extended periods of separation, the front lines, training missions and surges. Coming home is to be a time of celebration and a reunion with family and friends. However, for many, coming home means facing unemployment, homelessness, suffering from PTSD, mental illness, lingering health challenges, drug and alcoholic addictions. The legacy of faithful service from the all-volunteer force has created an opportunity for the nation to meet the needs of those returning (Continued on pg. 15)

Voter laws present threat to political clout for people of color By Cathy Cohen and Jon C. Rogowski In a democracy, few rights are as cherished as the right to vote. Yet, in the United States, people of color, mainly Latinos, African Americans, Asians and Native Americans, are finding that the more they demonstrate their civic responsibility by voting, the more obstacles surface that are designed to weaken the power of their votes. Since 2008, when the nation elected its first AfricanAmerican president, there have been numerous efforts in various states to impact ballot access.  Legislatures in 19 states have tightened identification requirements for citizens who wish to vote.  Many of these new laws require citizens to show a stateissued form of photo ID. The New York University School of Law Brennan Center for Justice warned in 2006 that because identification documents are not distributed equally across the population, voter-ID laws would significantly affect voter access for people of color — especially Latinos and African Americans — who possessed photo identification at considerably lower rates than whites did. That prediction became reality last November.  A study

conducted immediately after the 2012 election surveyed a nationally representative sample of 1,500 young people ages 18-29 with large oversamples of blacks and Latinos. Consistent with other national reports, the study sponsored by the Black Youth Project confirmed a high voter turnout among youth. It also determined that young people of color— especially black youth—were asked to show identification when voting at considerably higher rates than white youth were. Even in states with no identification laws, 66 percent of black youth and 55 percent of Latino youth were asked to show ID, compared with 43 percent of white youth. When nonvoters were asked to indicate the reasons why they did not vote, black youth were three times as likely as white youth were (17 percent compared with 5 percent) to say that they did not vote because they lacked the proper identification documents. The study provides compelling evidence that identification laws are applied inconsistently across racial groups, and appear to reduce turnout disproportionately among people of color. In the aftermath of the 2012 election, also under attack is the principle of   “one

person, one vote,” established in 1964 when the Supreme Court ruled in Reynolds v. Sims that legislative districts must contain equal numbers of citizens. Several states, including Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virginia, recently considered or are considering measures to apportion their electoral votes by congressional districts in place of the winner-take-all system currently in place. Discussions of these proposals have focused, not incorrectly, on the implications for the outcomes of presidential elections. But these proposals are designed explicitly to reduce the electoral influence of citizens living in densely populated areas—precisely those areas more likely to contain larger proportions of people of color—and increase the electoral im-

portance of people living in more sparsely populated areas that take up larger swaths of geography. As Sen. Charles Carrico, who introduced the measure in the Virginia State Senate, explained, residents in rural areas “were concerned that it didn’t matter what they did, that more densely populated areas were going to outvote them.” Under the Electoral College split-vote  plans, the gerrymandering of congressional districts ensures that black voters in states like Ohio and Pennsylvania would have considerably less influence on the apportionment of the state’s electoral votes. For instance, the 538 blog recently reported that President Obama would have lost twelve of Ohio’s 18 electoral votes had they been appor-

tioned by congressional district. Not only would this have distorted the voices of Ohio’s voters writ large (Obama received more than 100,000 votes more than Romney), but it also would have significantly weakened the influence of Ohio’s black voters. Nearly 65 percent of black residents of Ohio are concentrated in the four congressional districts---mostly in the Cleveland area---in which Obama won. Along with weakening the political potency of urban voters generally, proposals to apportion Electoral College votes by congressional district seriously devalue the votes from people of color. This tension between individuals and geography is also found in the debate surrounding the current Supreme Court case Shelby County v. Holder. At issue is Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which requires that states with a history of racially discriminatory voting practices receive federal clearance before changing electoral laws. In oral arguments on February 27, attorney Bert Rein argued on behalf of Shelby County, Alabama, that this provision is “an inappropriate vehicle to sort out the sovereignty of individual states.” But the sovereignty (Continued on pg. 5)

By Rev. Judith T. Lester, B.Min. M.Th

Following Jesus on the mountain and in the valley (conclusion) “Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” - John 20:28 Christ is Risen, He is Risen indeed! Alleluia!!!! The resurrection of Jesus lies at the heart of the Christian faith. There is absolutely no form of early Christianity known to us that does not affirm that after Jesus’ shameful death God raised him to life again! Therefore for the last 2,000 years the foundation of Christianity has rested securely on the simple yet unfathomable truth: Jesus is alive! There’s joy that fills us when we encounter the risen Christ. The Scripture notes in John 20:28 when Jesus comes in, sees Thomas, and

addresses him, desiring him to come to Him and put his finger into the print of the nails, etc. Thomas, satisfied of the reality of the Lord’s resurrection says unto Jesus “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28). In other words, Thomas was saying you are indeed the same person, my Lord and my God, and therefore the object of my joy and adoration. When your joy is found in your relationship with Jesus, you have an anchor that will not shift, change or fail when you encounter situations in life that bring despair, disappointment, sadness or frustration. When you have joy in Jesus, your joy will not depend on your circumstances, but the mere fact that “the Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” (Psalm

126:3). Easter Sunday is unquestionably and undeniably a mountaintop experience. Jesus’ resurrection gave validity to everything He has said, taught and preached. However, after the excitement of the resurrection, believers have a responsibility to continue the work that Christ has commissioned us to do. (John

9:4, Matthew 28:19-20). We work because of what Christ has done for us. We must let others know about the love and authority of Jesus Christ. Thus, after the resurrection (our mountaintop experience) we must continue to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, give shelter to the poor and empower those who may feel powerless. We

must share the Good News of the Gospel with a lost and dying world and with those who may be walking through their own valley experiences. The resurrection of Jesus was indeed the ultimate victory and we are recipients of the blessing. How can we not share that blessing with others? This is our ministry after the resurrection!

Voter laws threat to people of color (Continued from pg. 4)

of states should not be privileged over the equal protections constitutionally granted to individual citizens. Just as states like Ohio and Pennsylvania should not be allowed to weigh the votes of rural residents over votes from urban areas, neither should Alabama be excluded from provisions designed to protect Alabama citizens’ voting rights because Alabama’s sovereignty is judged to be

more important than their citizens’ electoral voices. Rein is right, though, on at least one point. As he and some of the conservative justices on the Court pointed out, the South is not uniquely racially discriminatory. Schemes to apportion Electoral College votes by congressional district, for instance, have been discussed mostly by states that are not required to receive federal preclearance. But this is not an argument for striking down Section 5. Indeed, any measure that limits ballot access or dilutes some group’s electoral influence in any state ought to be opposed. However, if states like South Carolina, Texas, Vir-

ginia, and others currently subject to Section 5 have their way, significant numbers of people of color are especially likely to feel the negative consequences of new electoral laws. Keeping Section 5 in place will continue to help guard against attempts to limit the influence of people of color on Election Day.

Special: Election 2013

NOTICE OF SPRING ELECTION, SPECIAL ELECTION AND SAMPLE BALLOTS April 2, 2013 OFFICE OF THE MILWAUKEE COUNTY BOARD OF ELECTION COMMISSIONERS TO THE ELECTORS OF THE CITY OF MILWAUKEE: Notice is hereby given of a spring election to be held in the City of Milwaukee, on the 2nd day of April, 2013, at which the officers named below shall be chosen. The names of the candidates for each office to be voted for, whose nominations have been certified to or filed in this office, are given under the title of the office, each in its proper column, together with the questions submitted to a vote, for a referendum, if any, in the sample ballot below. INFORMATION TO ELECTORS Upon entering the polling place, an elector shall state his or her name and address and sign the poll book before being permitted to vote. Where ballots are distributed to electors, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot. Upon being permitted to vote, the elector shall retire alone to a voting booth and cast his or her ballot except that an elector who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the elector’s minor child or minor ward. An election official may inform the elector of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice. At the spring election, where optical scan voting systems are used, the elector shall connect the arrow next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the elector shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided and connect the arrow on the write-in line. On referendum questions, the elector shall connect the arrow next to “yes” if in favor of the question, or the elector shall connect the arrow next to “no” if opposed to the question. Where touch screen voting systems are used, the elector shall touch the screen next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the elector shall type in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote. On referendum questions, the elector shall touch the screen next to “yes” if in favor of the question, or the elector shall touch the screen next to “no” if opposed to the question. The vote should not be cast in any other manner. Not more than five minutes time shall be allowed inside a voting booth or machine. Sample ballots or other materials to assist the elector in casting his or her vote may be taken into the booth and copied. The sample ballot shall not be shown to anyone so as to reveal how the ballot is marked. If the elector spoils an optical scan ballot, he or she shall return it to an election official who shall issue another ballot in its place, but not more than three ballots shall be issued to any one elector. If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is defective in any other way, the elector shall return it to the election official, who shall issue a proper ballot in its place. After casting his or her vote, the elector shall leave the voting booth, properly deposit the ballot and promptly leave the polling place. The elector may spoil a touch screen ballot at the voting station before the ballot is cast. After an official optical scan ballot is marked, it shall be inserted in the security sleeve so the marks do not show. After casting his or her vote, the elector shall leave the booth, insert the ballot in the voting device and discard the sleeve, or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit. After an official touch screen ballot is cast, the elector shall leave the polling place promptly. An elector may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the elector declares to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing or understanding English or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot. The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the elector’s employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the elector.

The following is a sample of the official ballots: Wards 3, 4, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 98 will have the following additional contest on their ballot: SPECIAL ELECTION COUNTY SUPERVISOR, DISTRICT 2 (Vote for One) Khalif J.

The Milwaukee Times

Writers Gallery Milwaukee Times is teaming up with Lindsay Heights "Youth SPEAK Out", a Boys & Girls Clubs program, to showcase some of the talented young writers from Shalom High School and The Boys & Girls Club to learn their views on some of today's hot topics.

Kenya Quezaire Who is my role model? I would have to say my grandparents because they did so much to make our family strong and independent as individuals. Coming up in life, they didn’t have much and they tried their best to give anything they didn’t have as kids. My grandparents had raised ten kids, three grandkids and a lot of foster kids. I thank them for supporting me when I needed them and being there when I needed them the most. Why do African American youth join gangs? A lot of young men I know join gangs because it’s the next level to having a family. Some gang members are looked up to by these young men as fathers just because they don’t have one at home. They need somebody to teach them how to be a man and some mothers can’t do that at home. What is your impression of the Milwaukee Police Department? It all depends on how they do their job. I mean as long they are keeping people safe and not harassing anybody for any reason. My impression on them is they will have to be good. I really think most of the time they can do their job a little bit better because there are lot of people out here who should not be out here -- point blank. Alexis Moore Who is your role model and why? My role model is myself because looking up to someone else will not help me accomplish anything. By looking up to myself and believing in myself, I can grow to be someone else’s role model. I’m also a good role model because I’m always

helping others do the right thing. I’m good with listening and giving good advice. Furthermore, I am a teen mother of two who hasn’t given up and is doing well in life with my children. I show others that I care rather than just talking about how I care. This is why I am my own role model. Why do African American youth join gangs? African Americans join gangs sometimes because of peer pressure of the people around them talking about it and not wanting to be left out so they do it as well. Or they join because their relatives are doing it and they are trying to be like them. Most children do what they see other older people doing, especially their family and close friends. It could also be because they had no parents in their life and that led to being out on the streets selling drugs and hustling; then that led to gang violence. A lot of times when a kid’s family is messed up, they end up spending more time on the streets, and the gang becomes like their second family. Maybe they only have a mom and she has drug problems or is never around or is around too much. Maybe they have a dad that is never around or is on drugs. Some kids suffer through home life with parents who are always drunk on alcohol and they don’t really know their parents. So they meet older gang members that give them money and make them feel like a little brother or even like a little son. What is your impression of the Milwaukee Police Department? My impression of the Milwaukee Police Department is not good because every time I tried calling them about an emergency I had or someone else had, it took them hours to respond to the call and by that time I could’ve been dead. At the same time, they are very helpful and sacrifice their lives to protect others and I respect that about them. I also like living by the police because most of the time not too much happens around the police district stations, but overall they protect our city. Khadijah Lloyd Who is your role model and why? My role model is my mom, because she loves helping others, she is always happy and everyday she tells me I could be something in life. Or I can be the world's greatest poet; and even if I don’t believe in myself she be-

Khadijah Lloyd lieves in me.

ers may just be highly influenced and follow what others around them do, whether it’s music, games, etc. Then, there are others who just join a gang just to do so. Being in a gang doesn’t make any situation better, but mainly worse. Many of our young African American youth are dying because of this. Not only does this affect gang members, but the community suffers as well. Neighborhoods are full of calamity, and many people who live in those neighborhoods suffer whatever gang acts are going on. The person, him or herself, can only make such a decision to join a gang or not, and there are always repercussions. The decision a person makes today determines their tomorrow.

Free Focus:

Bianca Brown Why do African American youths join gangs? African Americans today are engaged in many violent acts, more than any other race. One of the reasons young African Americans are subjected to violence linked to gangs. In my era, I know a lot of African American youth who are associated or affiliated with a gang. It is known that gang violence is one of the leading causes of deaths. One reason, I believe that the youth join gangs is because they don’t have any family. When you are young and basically take care of yourself, you yearn for a family or people to look to and you end up finding yourself in a gang because that’s the only family you know. Oth-

Community Column Headline: Helping adults plan for their education futures Esmeralda Cruz was nervous about making the transition from Milwaukee Area Technical College to the University of WisconsinMilwaukee. Michael Brown wanted to complete his GED (General Education Diploma) and begin to turn his life around after some struggles. Both Cruz and Brown found support in reaching their goals through the federally funded Educational Opportunity Center (EOC), based at UWM but serving eligible adults from all over Milwaukee County. The center’s advisers help students set education goals, plan for the future and enroll in programs. The EOC’s services are free to low-income adults who are residents of Milwaukee County and the first in their families to go to trade or technical schools or college. Success stories Cruz, who is now a business management major at UWM, was worried about making the transfer from MATC to the university. “I was concerned UWM would be very different from MATC, and I

wasn’t sure how I would do. I had stereotyped myself… that as a Latina woman and an older student I wouldn’t be able to do it. I know better now, but at the time I was concerned.” With a daughter in third grade, Cruz was also concerned about balancing family needs with her academic work. “The Educational Opportunity Center helped me make that transfer from MATC to UWM.” Now she’s confident that she will earn that accounting degree so she can help her husband in their family business, and perhaps become an entrepreneur herself. Brown was working to overcome personal problems when he discovered the EOC. “I was determined to do something to help myself and the Lord presented this opportunity.” EOC director and adviser Rita Muwonge was working at an EOC location near his home, and helped him get started on his journey to a new life. With her help and encouragement, he went on to earn his high school diploma and enrolled at MATC in Oak

Michael Brown completed his high school GED and started classes in carpentry and cabinet making at MATC’s Oak Creek campus. Creek, learning the skills for a new career as a carpenter and cabinetmaker. “I’ve always liked working with my hands, but before I didn’t have the education to do the measuring and drafting.” Those success stories and others illustrate the work of the EOC, says Muwonge. “Our mission is to expand awareness about educational opportunities and postsecondary education options to low-income, first-generation college students who

are Milwaukee County adult residents,” she adds. The EOC works in collaboration with MATC, the YWCA, United Migrant Opportunity Services (UMOS), the Social Development Commission and a wide variety of community-based social service providers, employment agencies, and other organizations. A wealth of services EOC advisers can help adults plan for their individual career and academic

goals. They also work with potential students to select a college and handle admission and financial aid applications. The advisers can help students with study habits, time management and computer skills, and connect them with mentors and tutors. In addition, the EOC holds workshops on resources, financial aid and transferring from two-year to four-year programs, and hosts a variety of cultural programs. “We all know that education is an important key to advancement, but the choices are sometimes complicated, and mistakes can be expensive,” says Muwonge. “The college or university needs to fit an individual’s needs and financial situation. Many students we work with also have jobs and families to balance with their education. Our goal is to help them make the best decisions to meet their goals.” For more information about the services of the EOC, call 414-229-2917 or visit the website at http://

The Federal Department of Labor highlights Milwaukee youth’s success story The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment & Training AdministrationDivision of Youth Services, published a story about Johnny Elam from Milwaukee who is thriving as a result of the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board’s (MAWIB) Civic Justice Corps program. This collaborative workforce initiative brings together community partners to assist juvenile offenders between the ages of 18 to 24 in getting back on track. “The Civic Justice Corps program is an excellent example of preparing a population with significant barriers to employment for the future workforce,” says Donald Sykes, MAWIB President and CEO. “We are pleased the Department of Labor published Johnny’s story. His success demonstrates how effective collaborations can have a tremendous impact on our community.” Civic Justice Corps The Civic Justice Corps initiative gives juvenile offenders the opportunity demonstrate accountability for their actions and make reparations to the community by participating in short-term community service projects. The target population for the Civic Justice Corps project is juvenile offenders ages 18 to 24 who have been in-

to return to school in the fall. Currently, he is getting some valuable firsthand experience working at Northcott.

Coming home (Continued from pg. 3)

Johnny Elam volved with the juvenile justice system within 12 months prior to entry into the program. This program, which is currently in progress, has set a goal to provide project management and serve 96 participants. Johnny Elam graduated from North Division High School in 2009 where he excelled as a basketball player for the Blue Devils. His basketball skill landed him a full scholarship to attend Indiana Hills in Indiana. A short time after graduation, Johnny ended up hang-

ing out with some friends that decided to commit an armed robbery of an individual after they left a party. One of the individuals stole the car of the person they robbed and parked it not too far from his home. As a result, the police captured one suspect and that individual told the names of everyone else involved including Johnny Elam. Johnny was placed at Lincoln Hills until his 18th birthday. Despite this unfortunate setback, the recruiter from Indiana Hills had kept in contact with Johnny and still of-

fered the full scholarship for fall 2012. In the meantime, Johnny was enrolled into the Civic Justice Program in November 2011 and was placed at Northcott Neighborhood House as a construction aide. Johnny is doing an excellent job there and per his supervisor, he sets a great example for other workers to follow. Johnny reports to work on time every day and has had no issues. Johnny stated that he uses this opportunity to stay out of trouble while doing something productive and assisting his mother with paying some bills. He plans

from service. These men and women, who answered the call, wore the uniform, stood the watch, completed the mission, deserve an opportunity for a good job, education and quality of life. There is a need to ensure that those who served are not forgotten, thrown to the side or used up. For, we must always remember that “freedom is not free.” For feedback you can contact Dr. Calhoun at email:, Facebook, twitter: AC53, or 414-571-5015.

Talking Health with Dr. Carter

By Dr. Lester Carter Owner, Carter Drug Store

Superfoods: Foods with benefits (part 2)

Hippocrates had it right around 300 B.C. when he advised, "Make thy food thy medicine, and thy medicine thy food." (We're slow learners as a race, aren't we?) We discuss 10 superfoods. Traditionally defined, these foods have exceptional properties. A grocery list follows that discussion. It features the foods most frequently rated as "super." Please note that although there is currently an exciting trend toward vegetarianism (no flesh foods), vegan (no foods sourced from animals), and raw food diets, we list foods from both dairy and meat categories.

Green grasses and algae: These food families make it easy to pack green nutrition into your day. They are both available as powders, either isolated or in mixes with other nutrient dense foods. There is so much information on these foods that three Nutrition News issues exist to laud their health benefits. Algae has been called a perfect food, one that could be used to end world hunger. We are talking about spirulina, chlorella, and Klamath blue-green algae. Research has shown that these foods can increase our energy and stamina, heighten mental clarity, improve our ability to handle stress, enhance immunity, and give us a greater sense of well-being. You can easily make algae a part of your life by taking a teaspoon a day with your regular food (or a like amount, 4 grams, as tablets or capsules). I use Hawaiian spirulina powder in my daily smoothie while Mr. Khalsa prefers a handful of tablets with a glass of water in the midaftemoon. Green grasses are the foundational food for most landbased life. The grasses came to light as human nutrition with the curative work of the late Ann Wigmore who originally expelled wheat grass juice using a second hand meat grinder. In 1980, barley grass came on the market. Its health benefits were discovered by Yoshihide Hagiwara, MD,

pharmacist, and researcher. These two grasses have similar nutrients and benefits. However only wheat grass is readily available as fresh juice. Aloe vera: Known as an external applicant for burns and other skin conditions, taken internally aloe vera can heal the intestines, support cholesterol management, and enhance immunity. Amazingly, only one percent of aloe is substantive. The remainder is water! That solid material contains over 75 different compounds, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, lignins, salicylic acid, antioxidants, and more. Since we can't cover all of aloe's benefits here, let's look at its use as a digestive aid. Studies at the Linus Pauling Institute show that six ounces of aloe juice taken 3 times daily increase protein digestion and absorption, decrease bowel putrefaction, and improve intestinal pH. The mucous lining of the gastrointestinal tract is soothed by aloe, reducing pain and inflammation. Food allergy relief is another benefit of healing the gut lining. Incidentally, researchers have found that taking vitamins C and E with aloe increases the vitamins' bioavailability by over 200 percent. In addition, vitamin levels remain significantly higher over 24 hours. (Read Nutrition News "True HealerAloe Vera".)

Bee products: When we think of bees, most of us think of honey. There is amazing news about honey. A recent issue of Women s Health Letter carried the following headline: "The Worse Your Diabetes, The More This Sweetener May Lower Your Blood Sugar". Editor-author Nan Fuchs, PhD, reports that honey helps lower blood sugar. When 48 people with type 2 diabetes ate small amounts of honey throughout the day for eight weeks, it low-

ered both their blood sugar and HbAlc. Nan referenced several studies as well as The Honey Revolution by Ron Fessenden, MD. Dr. Fessenden suggests 3-5 tablesppons of honey daily, taking two tablespoons in the morning with fruit, yogurt, or cereal. Another couple tablespoons midday and one at night to help you sleep. If you have diabetes, monitor your response carefully. Nan advises that you "replace most sugars in your diet with honey". In addition to honey, bees produce four substances that make our lives better: pollen, royal jelly, propolis, and beeswax. Except for beeswax, each of these can be considered a superfood. To learn more about them, watch for Nutrition News, "Health From The Hive".

hypertension. In 1996, it was scientists at the University of California at Davis who revealed that chocolate is rich in antioxidants. Called phenolics, these are the same compounds that occur in red wine. Those researchers calculated that a 1.5-ounce bar of dark chocolate contains 205 mg of phenolics, comparable to the 210 mg found in a 5-ounce glass of cabernet. A cup of hot chocolate made from 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder delivers 219 mg. - but make it with nonfat milk.

Dark chocolate: The big news about chocolate hit in 2003 with research published by two prestigious science journals: Nature and JAMA. The article in Nature distinguished that only dark chocolate - not milk or white chocolate - raises antioxidant levels in the body. However, even drinking a glass of milk with the dark chocolate canceled its antioxidant potential. In the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers reported that dar chocolate had the effect of lowering blood pressure in Continued next week: l3 men and women with mild The incredible edible egg

What’s Happening?

Meet the candidates (Continued from pg. 1) The next speaker was Judge Rebecca Bradley, for Milwaukee County Circuit Court Branch 45. She currently serves on the Children’s Court and is a Marquette graduate. Also running for Circuit Court Branch 45 is Attorney Janet Protasiewicz; she is an Assistant District Attorney. The questions posed to them were involved with their experience with diverse populations. Bradley is a Milwaukee native, and has spent many years in Milwaukee interacting with diverse communities. Now that she’s on the campaign trail, as she is still serving on children’s court, she has also been reaching out to schools and visiting schoolchildren. “I currently belong to the Wisconsin Advisory Committee to the US Commission on Civil Rights, which has enabled me to participate in forums with diverse populations,” said Bradley. Bradley’s opponent, Janet Protasiewicz, Assistant District Attorney for the last 25 years, spoke about how she has really enjoyed Community Brainstorming events over the last couple of months. “I truly believe in controlling those non-violent crimes there has to be alternatives to

incarceration and there has to be ways that these young people are not being made felons (at 17 or 18 years old),” Protasiewicz said. Khalif J. Rainey and Ravae S.M. Sinclair are running for Senator Nikiya Harris’ seat in District 2 of Milwaukee County, they spoke about issues of betrayal and maintaining a strong interaction with constituents. Khalif J. Rainey has worked in Congresswoman Gwen Moore’s office and was on the board of Community Brainstorming Conference. Ravae S.M. Sinclair has served in the public defender’s office and is a lifelong Milwaukee resident. “It goes without question that our community has suffered as a result of those we entrusted in government, but not only those that resulted in criminal charges but those that turned a blind eye…I would never betray my community, I’m a product of the community. Win, lose or draw, I’m going to provide service to the city of Milwaukee,” Rainey said. “My family has taught me service. My dad is a plumber and a teacher, my uncle is a pastor. I began my training in service at home and in my family; we have a shared, collective responsibility even with the challenges. Serving as an attorney is a pleasure; I am who I am and I’m committed to the people,” said Sinclair. Running for MPS school

board in District 6 is Tatiana Joseph; she is an educator, educational researcher and has lived in the district for over 20 years. The questions the candidates were asked were surrounding innovative ideas and budget constraints. Dr. Joseph spoke about her immigrant background and how she made it, being an English-language learner and her growing up in poverty. “We need to make sure we have strong relationships with community programs like Arts @Large, the Boys and Girls Clubs and reaching

out and partnering with organizations so that students can take advantage of those things,” she said. Her opponent, former Alderman Angel Sanchez,

spoke about the same concerns she did. “We need to do neighborhood clean ups and work together, we need to also invite people into the schools, teachers change lives,” Sanchez said. The final candidate that spoke at the forum was candidate for the school board in District 7, Claire Zautke; her opponent David Voeltner was unable to attend the forum. Claire Zautke currently works in Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele’s office. She answered the same questions that the other candidates did regarding innovation and budget concerns with Milwaukee Public Schools. “We need to get the community to start believing in MPS again,” Zautke said. Overall, the political candidate forum that was held at Community Brainstorming provided the opportunity for candidates to speak about concerns, answer questions and restate their platforms for the election on April 2, 2013.

Personal Finance & Business

By Jason Alderman Director of Visa’s financial education programs

Maximize your disabled child's government aid

Parents of special needs children have enough on their plates just tending to the health, educational and emotional needs of their kids – not to mention often having to cope with drastically lowered income because of reduced work hours or having to pay someone else for childcare. So it's not surprising that many of these parents haven't had time to hatch a long-term financial plan in case their kids need care after they're not around. Fortunately, many government programs and community resources are available to help relieve the financial burden of parenting special needs children. But eligibility criteria are complicated and the application process time-consuming. Plus, if you're not careful, you or well-meaning relatives could

inadvertently disqualify your kids for future benefits by not structuring their inheritances correctly. Here's a brief overview of key government assistance programs: The Social Security Administration provides two types of disability coverage: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). Rules and eligibility requirements differ between the two programs – and benefits differ for children and adults. In a nutshell, SSI is a needs-based, cash-assistance program for disabled people of any age in low-income families with limited resources. Children qualify for SSI benefits if they meet certain strict criteria outlined in SSA Publication 05-11000 (www.

SSDI is a separate program funded by payroll deductions (part of FICA). Although children sometimes receive SSDI payments if their parents are disabled, their eligibility is based on their parents' disability status, not on their own. However, after turning 22, already disabled children may qualify for SSDI on their own if at least one parent qualifies for Social Security benefits. Eligibility rules and definitions for SSI and SSDI are complex. To see if your child qualifies, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213, or search the Disability and SSI tabs at One particularly helpful resource is "Benefits for Children with Disabilities," SSA Publication No. 0510026. Many families inadvertently jeopardize their disabled

child's eligibility for government-provided benefits by opening accounts in the child's name or designating them as beneficiaries. Unfortunately, federal law dictates that recipients of SSI, Medicaid and many state assistance programs will be disqualified if they have resources worth over $2,000. So, if Uncle Jerry leaves your daughter $10,000 in his will, she could lose her benefits. One good alternative is to create a special needs trust, whose assets can be used by its trustee to manage the finances and personal effects of a disabled person. Trusts are governed by state laws and should only be drafted by an attorney familiar with this area of law. Some parents name the trust as beneficiary of life insurance policies to ensure

a source of funding if they die before their child. (Stay current on your premiums.) Other possible funding sources include cash, stocks and other investments, retirement plan death benefits, home sale proceeds and inheritances from other relatives and friends. Just make sure that the trust –not the child – is named beneficiary. Preparing a special needs trust can be expensive – possibly several thousand dollars, depending on your situation. But weigh that against the prospect of your child losing out on a lifetime of government-provided benefits because of an accidental inheritance – speaking of which, be sure to let any wellmeaning relatives or friends know about the trust.

How rising food costs affect black families

People of color suffer disproportionately from food insecurity. What will our leaders do? By: Edward Wyckoff Williams Like most Americans, you may have noticed the price of chicken has risen by nearly a quarter over the past year. Fresh vegetables and produce are increasingly more expensive. Feeding the average family of four is taking a toll on the poor, low-income and middle-class alike. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that U.S. inflation is relatively low -- averaging 2 percent since the recession. But the overall numbers belie a hidden truth -- that food price inflation is expected to rise 3 to 4 percent this year alone, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Overall inflation remains low mostly because of the Federal Reserve's decision to suppress interest rates -- allowing banks to borrow money at near zero. The theory behind this rationale, of course, is to offer cheap capital to cash-strapped consumers, those seeking to enter the housing markets and businesses looking to invest. But following the TARP program and corporate bailouts of 2008 and 2009, banks didn't lend. Unemployment skyrocketed, and wages continued a 40-year trend of decreasing. In fact, researchers at the Brookings Institute found that real earnings of working-age men (25-64) have declined 19 percent since 1970. Furthermore, the "core inflation rate" of 2 percent, measured by the Consumer

prices. Higher oil prices are also a factor, as transporting food across the country becomes more expensive with higher gasoline prices. Political instability throughout North Africa and the Middle East has also taken its toll. And increasing affluence in emerging market nations has a measurable effect: As the

Price Index (CPI), is a misleading figure, because it is often reported excluding volatile measures like food, gas and oil prices. Much has been written about the disproportionate effect the recession has had on the African American community -- with crippling levels of unemployment -but less attention is being paid to the empirical realities that such statistical analysis represents; in short, when people can't work, they often don't eat. Although correlated, poverty and food insecurity are not the same. Unemployment is the strongest predictor of food insecurity -- and as minority communities struggle the most in finding work, they also disproportionately become victims of hunger. The USDA defines "food insecurity" as struggling to put food on the table and often not knowing where your next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, 25.1 percent of African American households

and 26.2 of Hispanic families were food insecure in 2011. African American households with children were affected the most -- at 29.2 percent, compared to 20.6 percent of other U.S. households with kids. Single mothers were the most vulnerable, at a rate of 36.8 percent of their households experiencing food insecurity. So what's actually causing food price inflation? The answer is not so simple. The effects of the Midwest drought in 2012 have become undeniably apparent in the early months of 2013. The drought -- which some experts claim will worsen with climate change -- has meant that prices for corn, soybeans and other grains rose sharply. But the truth is that grocery prices have been rising 2 to 3 percent each year between 1990 and 2011. The U.S. government's subsidy of corn production for use in biofuels is one reason. This reduces the corn supply and subsequently raises

middle classes grow, people eat more meat -- grains (for animal feed) increase in value as demand increases. The problem, therefore, is circular and compounded -- meaning the drought has simply made an already tenuous situation worse.

“Do I Look Like an ATM?” by Sabrina Lamb

Your child has caught some bug that’s going around. He has a terminal case of The Gimmes, and he’s not getting any better. It’s “Gimme that” and “Buy me this” all day long. It’s GimmeGimmeGimme, usually accompanied by whining, pleading, and a maddening inability to understand the word “no.” The Gimmes are enough to make any parent crazy. They make you wish there was some sort of doctor who had some sort of shot to prevent it. But there isn’t so why not read “Do I Look Like an ATM?” by Sabrina Lamb instead? Somewhere in your home, there lives a little beggar who can’t take “no” for an answer. He’s always got his hand out and he knows exactly how to wear you down when it

comes to money. If you had a dime for every dollar he’s asked for, you’d be rich. So how did this happen? Sabrina Lamb says that your child was born to beg, which is a situation you need to stop. Avoiding the issue (or worse, giving in) can result in big problems now and even bigger problems in the future. But first, the stats: members of the black community have an estimated $1.1 trillion dollars to spend – and yet, many report having no savings, most don’t know their credit score, and forty c.2013, percent have little or nothing Lawrence Hill Books for retirement. Furthermore, $14.95/$16.95 Canada “…African Americans tend 215 pages to wield their tremendous buying power on products with little or zero monetary and fancy phones take monvalue.” That means rented ey out of your pocket but homes, expensive vehicles, don’t put it back.

The first step to fixing that situation is by looking inward. Chances are that you never learned financial literacy and your attitudes toward wealth may be limiting your ability to understand money issues. Just giving yourself an education on finances presents a good example for your kids. Speak your financial truth and tell your child. Understand the difference between “need” and “want” and teach your child that looking financially successful is not the same as being financially successful. Forget about keeping up with your neighbors. Identify your parental money style. Set your family up as a business, show your kids how to save - and then show them how to give, too. Wow. I was so impressed at what I found inside “Do

I Look Like an ATM?” that I was uncharacteristically speechless. When it comes to financial literacy for children, so many authors take mincing baby-steps and waste everybody’s time, but not founder Sabrina Lamb. She takes a different approach that starts with parents, and she’s not gentle with her words. No, Lamb’s a little sarcastic and very in-your-face, but her boot-camp-like attitude left no doubt in my mind that what she says, works. I like that no-nonsense talk and I think you will, too – especially if you’re serious about money matters. If talking about dollars to your kids just makes sense, then “Do I Look Like An ATM?” would be a shot in the arm to your family’s finances.

Mount Mary art professors guide students to create multimedia look at Bronzeville Exhibit at Milwaukee High School of the Arts ran through March 22 Two Mount Mary art professors worked with more than a dozen Milwaukee High School of the Arts students for five months to create “Standing on Their Shoulders: Memories of Bronzeville,” a multimedia exhibit on the African American neighborhood. Through oral histories, photo collages and painted murals, the teenagers captured key elements of the historic area. Led by Mount Mary art professors Paul Calhoun and Brad Bernard, the students learned a variety of skills, including interviewing, writing, editing and storytelling. Most importantly, the students were educated about Bronzeville. According to Calhoun, none of the students, most of whom were African American,

Photos by Yvonne Kemp

knew anything about the neighborhood. “The students conducted more than a dozen interviews with elders who lived in Bronzeville,” says Calhoun. “They heard firsthand about segregation and what it was like at the turn of the 20th century.” The student work focuses on three aspects of Bronzeville – the importance of religion and jazz and African American life during that time. The exhibit was on display at the Milwaukee High School of the Arts, 2300 W. Highland Ave., Milwaukee, through March 22. The project is supported by a grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund and Know Thyself.

Spiced Grilled Ham with Citrus Glaze

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 1 1/2 to 2 hours Yield: 12 to 14 (4-ounce) servings 6 to 7-pound fully-cooked bone-in ham, trimmed 1 tablespoon ground coriander 1 tablespoon ground paprika 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 cup lemon marmalade (or other citrus marmalade) 2 tablespoons orange juice 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar Preheat gas or charcoal grill to mediumhot (375°F to 425°F). Prepare grill for indirect cooking: For gas grill, turn off center burner; for charcoal grill, bank coals on either side; place a drip pan under grate between heat sources. Score a diamond pattern into ham, about 1/8 inch deep into any fat. In small bowl, combine coriander, paprika, cumin, cinnamon and cloves. Rub spice mixture over all sides of ham. Place ham, flat side down, in center of grill over drip pan. Cover and cook, adding briquettes as necessary to maintain heat, until internal temperature of ham reaches 140°F, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or 15 to 18 minutes per pound. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine marmalade, orange juice and sugar. Brush marmalade mixture over ham. Cover and grill 5 minutes, until glaze is lightly caramelized. Remove ham from grill, transfer to cutting board, and let rest 15 to 30 minutes. (Oven-roasting instructions can be found at


from the National Pork Board n n


Grill over indirect heat. This allows the ham to heat evenly, without burning. Score the ham. Scoring (diagonal cuts about 1 inch apart on the surface of the ham) not only looks more appealing, but it allows both the natural juices and the glaze to penetrate and flavor the meat. Use an instant-read thermometer. Heat pre-cooked (or cured) ham until the internal temperature reaches 140°F. Cook fresh uncooked ham until the internal temperature reaches 145°F, followed by a 3-minute rest. When inserted into the thickest part of the meat (without touching any bone), the temperature should register within a few seconds.

Roasted Potatoes with Bacon and Goat Cheese

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes Yield: 6 servings 1/2 pound bacon, sliced 12 small red potatoes, halved Olive oil 1/2 cup sour cream 1/4 cup goat cheese, plain 4 tablespoons green onions, sliced 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 3 tablespoons dill, snipped, plus dill for garnish 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper Heat oven to 450°F. In large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, turning to brown evenly, until crisp. Blot bacon on paper towels, mince and set aside. Brush cut surfaces of potatoes lightly with olive oil. Place potato halves cut side up on a shallow rimmed baking pan; bake until potatoes are tender and faces of potatoes are lightly browned, about 20 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in small bowl mash together sour cream and goat cheese, stir in minced bacon, onion, Parmesan, dill, salt and pepper. Top each potato with a spoonful, about 2 teaspoons, of sour cream mixture. Serve warm. Make-Ahead Tip: Roast potatoes before guests arrive; keep warm in the oven. Top with cheese mixture before serving.

Ham and Peas with Mint and Tarragon

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Yield: 4 to 6 servings 4 ounces cooked ham, cut into 1/4-inch dice 3 cups peas, fresh or frozen 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick) cut into 4 to 6 pieces 1/4 cup fresh mint, coarsely chopped, plus sprigs for garnish 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, coarsely chopped, plus sprigs for garnish Salt and pepper to taste Bring medium saucepan of well-salted water to a boil over high heat. Add peas and cook until tender, 3 to 8 minutes depending on size of peas. Drain peas, reserving 2 tablespoons cooking water. Return peas and cooking water to saucepan. Add ham, butter, mint, and tarragon, stirring until butter melts. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl, garnish with mint and tarragon sprigs, and serve.

Caramel Frozen Yogurt Pie with Grilled Peaches

Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Yield: 8 to 10 servings 2 pints premium vanilla frozen yogurt 1 9-inch prepared graham cracker pie crust, or 8 individual graham cracker pie crusts 1 1/4 cups caramel sauce, store-bought 2 tablespoons butter, melted 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar 6 ripe medium sized peaches, halved and pitted Transfer 1 pint of frozen yogurt from freezer to refrigerator to soften for 30 to 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake pie crust until lightly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. To assemble pie, spread softened yogurt evenly over pie crust. Place in freezer and chill about 1 hour. When firm, spread about 3/4 cup caramel evenly over frozen yogurt. Return pie to the freezer, and transfer second pint of frozen yogurt to refrigerator. Allow pint to soften for 30 to 40 minutes. Spread second pint of yogurt evenly over caramel, making decorative swirls, if possible. Freeze until firm. Remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving. To grill peaches, prepare medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat gas grill on medium. Melt butter and stir in brown sugar until dissolved. Toss peaches with butter mixture until well coated. Grill peaches directly over medium fire, cut-side up, until grill marks are visible, about 5 minutes. Turn peaches over and grill until grill marks show and peaches are tender, about 4 minutes longer. Set aside to cool. When cool, cut peaches into thick wedges. When ready to serve, cut pie into wedges and serve with peaches on the side. Drizzle a little of remaining caramel sauce over top.
