CeCe Winans headlines BSO Christmas Show By Stacy M. Brown Renowned gospel singer and 12-time Grammy Award-winner CeCe Winans is scheduled to join the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Morgan State University Choir for a rousing gospel Christmas program of holiday favorites on Friday, December 21, 2018 at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The 8 p.m. performance promises to feature some of Winan’s biggest hits and select tunes from her brand new Christmas CD, “Something’s Happening! A Christmas Album.” “Baltimore can come to the show expecting a great time. We’re going to have fun and sing some of the old stuff and some of the new stuff,” said Winans, whose trophy mantel also contains a staggering 23 Dove Awards and seven Stellar Awards. Winans has also been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and has her star on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Nashville Music City Walk of Fame. “It’ll be Christmas time— the time of year that gets me excited because it’s fun, refreshing and it comes around every year at a time when we all need it,” she said. This is not the first time that Winans has performed in Baltimore and based on her enthusiasm for Charm City, it likely won’t be the last.

There’s always a smile on our faces when Baltimore is part of the plan.” The eighth of ten siblings, Winans rose to international fame with performances and recordings with her brother, BeBe. Their first album, “Lord Lift Us Up,” was released in 1984 and several more

would follow, including the massively successful, “Different Lifestyles,” in 1991. Winans then launched a solo career and, in 1995 released her first project without her brother called, “Alone in His Presence.” That was followed by other successful CD’s including “Everlasting Love,” “His Gift,” and “Alabaster Box,” all of which led to several gold and platinum certifications along with a Grammy and several Dove Awards. In 2016, Winans became a member of the Artist Committee for the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. For her latest CD, Winans again

tapped her son Alvin Love III, to produce. It features singles like “Something’s Happening,” “Giving Season,” and classics like, “Feliz Navidad,” and “Silent Night.” “Earlier, my son produced a record that won two Grammys and we got back together to produce a Christmas album with full orchestration which I love and it’s really beautiful and lots of fun,” Winans said. While there is lots of work involved in creating new music, Winans says she believes her career and her ministry— she pastors a church with her husband— are a calling for God. “I’ve seen the power of music. It will help encourage you to do the right thing and encourage you to do the wrong thing when done in a negative way,” Winans said. “I’m blessed and honored to encourage people to do the right thing, and the main message for me is that Christmas is what we’re all about. “It’s about understanding that everybody is important.” Music has always been an integral part of Winans’ life. She began singing at the age of eight and by age 15, she was already in a recording studio making music. She also starred in her family’s television show. “I love music and there’s so much more to do and so much more to say and that’s why we keep going,” Winans said. “There were times when I’d say, ‘I’m done.’ But, I always knew that this is what I was called to do,” she said. “It was my purpose. Even in challenging times, I know I was created to do this.”

Guest Editorials/Letters When Trump was afraid of the weather, and other insults to veterans By Bill Fletcher, Jr. November 11, 2018 was not an insignificant date. It was not just another Veteran’s Day. One hundred years prior “The Great War”—as World War I was referenced— was ended with a cease-fire or armistice. Thus, November 11 was known originally as “Armistice Day.” A war that should never have happened but took place because the great powers at the time were fighting largely over colonies, ended up costing the lives of millions. The USA, which only entered the war in 1917, nevertheless suffered major losses, including well after the war as victims of poison gas suffered and slowly died. A great-uncle of mine was one such victim of World War I. Over the November 11 weekend leaders from around the world converged on France to commemorate the end of World War I. Donald Trump was to be one of the leaders and he had the special duty of visiting the mass graves for U.S. soldiers buried at the Aisne-Marne cemetery adjacent to Belleau Wood not far from Paris. Belleau Wood was the site of a major battle between U.S. Marines (along with their British and French allies) and the Germans in which there were more than 9700 casualties. In US Marine history, Belleau Wood holds iconic status. President Trump chose not to visit the cemetery due to the weather. Instead, he tweeted congratulations on the birthday of the U.S. Marine Corp. I am not a militarist, and I generally find myself in opposition to U.S. foreign policy. However, there is something that I find absolutely obscene about Trump’s attitude towards U.S. soldiers and veterans. U.S. soldiers should not have been engaged in World War I but the fact of the matter is that they were deployed and suffered horribly. They, along with soldiers on both sides of the endless “no-man lands” separating trench systems occupied by opposing fighters, experienced a living hell. There were no hotels to which to retreat; no television or warm meals; no warm baths. There was the ever-present threat of poison gas and the zing of bullets flying by or into one’s head. And there was the sound of the whistle being blown signaling for the troops to leap out of the trenches and march forward into the machine gun fire unleashed by those in the opposing trenches. With this bit of history in mind, President Trump could not find it in himself to get a little wet and honor the lives of men who would never return home? Instead, his actions ring of contempt for those who were not rich enough or powerful enough to avoid the conflict. Bill Fletcher, Jr. is the former president of TransAfrica Forum.

Letters to the Editor: Editor: Re: Our Sissy President President Trump, our sissy president, flew across the Atlantic Ocean to France to participate in ceremonies honoring the military personnel who fought and died in WWI, but he couldn't attend the ceremonies at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery due to light rain. The cemetery has 2,288 graves, including many Americans who fought in the Aisne-Marne Offensive and the Battle of Belleau Wood. My wife's father, Alton Christmas Jones, who was gassed in France; and her uncle, William Howard Jones, were marines who fought at Belleau Wood. Our sissy president sent Chief of Staff John Kelly and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford to attend the cere-

monies. Kelly and Dunford are true Americans. Dignitaries who visited various WWI sites included Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; German Chancellor Angela Merkel; and French President Emmanuel Macron, but Trump stayed dry. Our military fights and dies in all types of weather, including rain, snow, the heat and the cold. The sissy president says he cares about our military but in the two years since his election he has not visited our military in an active war zone. He has disrespected our military and is a disgrace to our country. Donald Moskowitz Former PO2 & LT, U.S. Navy Londonderry, NH

Page Opposite/Commentaries From a digital desert to an entrepreneurial hub By Harry C. Alford and Kay DeBow The National Black Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) has launched a prototype project that, if successful, will transform minority, low-income and rural communities from forgotten places into entrepreneurial hubs of economic innovation. Our goal is to create communities with access to 5G-technology, integrated into low-income housing, job training and access to telemedicine and social services. It will all be done with private sector resources. If this prototype is successful, it will revolutionize economic development in these distressed areas.

Moreover, recent studies indicate that in the next decade over 50 percent of the working population will work as “freelancers.” To address the future these minority, low-income and rural communities need to develop a path that creates jobs in their communities. The top-down approach has failed after 65 years of government funding. How would a bottom-up approach work? The foundation of the prototype is to develop technology (cell towers and small cell 5G technology) and low-income housing in a community to provide the community jobs that have access to the world. The technology without people and workers is useless. Housing without technology is just another housing project. It is the combination that provides a future to the community. The prototype financing would be provided by developers of the specific parts of the project. The primary form of financing for the housing portion of the

Jobs would be created in the construction of the project, the long-term management of the housing units and with the addition of 5G technology the community would have the ability to create technology jobs and market their products to the world. Without access to high-speed broadband, minority and low-income communities will be permanently stuck in a wasteland, which has few jobs, few skills, few employers and little access to education.

create jobs in their communities. The technology without people and workers is useless. Housing without technology is just another housing project or Digital Desert. It is the combination that provides a future to the community. These minority and low-income communities do not have the money to build their own telecommunications infrastructure or housing. The federal government has talked about funding rural broadband for years but with little success. Now a bipartisan group of senators is actively promoting the AIRWAVES Act to fund 5G-technology in low-income and rural areas with revenues from the auctions that sell spectrum, the fruits of those very needed efforts are most likely years in the future. Minority and rural communities certainly do not have the time to wait for government funding. We must see if the private sector can do it now. If the prototype project is successful the NBCC will work with communities across the country that want to overcome impediments to success. Armed with an honest assessment of what they want to become NBCC will work with them to persuade those with resources to invest in their entrepreneurial vision. Not possible? Well, every major social change starts with a different vision of the future. It’s now time to apply creative thinking to transforming these forgotten people and communities into entrepreneurial hubs.

Campaign supports Baltimore-based Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults By Stacy M. Brown The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, which provides support services to young people with cancer and their families, is nearing completion of a house in Baltimore where patients can stay while receiving life-saving cancer treatments. The campaign to fund the house located just north of the Johns Hopkins Hospital campus has been the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the Ulman Cancer Fund’s two-decade history. “Housing is critical,” said Brock Yetso, executive director of the Ulman Cancer Fund. “Just a 30-minute drive when you have to be in the hospital every single day can be very challenging. A patient who doesn’t have close housing might bypass treatment. They might go somewhere closer to home where the treatment is not the same.” The house will include eight private family suites on the top floor and a communal living space on the main floor. It also includes a 1,000-square-foot meditation room and wellness area. “Patients and survivors say these are the things they wanted to see,” Yesto said. “They wanted it to be useful and medically safe, but not childish.” With fundraising still a priority for the house and other Ulman Cancer Fund initiatives, the founders of industrial design firm, Grappleworks stepped in to lend a helping hand. In search of a social cause to support the team at Grappleworks say they listened during a brainstorming exercise as everyone in the room shared stories impacted by cancer. Grappleworks co-founder Simon Fallows said someone in the room shouted out “Screw Cancer” and everyone noted

(Right) The Screw Cancer Campaign was launched on the crowdfunding platform, www.INDIEGOGO.com runs until December 15, 2018. Courtesy Photos/The Ulman Cancer Fund how the words simply stuck. During a research exercise to uncover how others use the term, Grappleworks created a “Screw Cancer” event hosted by The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in Baltimore. Fallows says it didn’t take long for both organizations to recognize the potential to build out the “Screw Cancer” brand together— creating a movement that includes events and products that people could wear, share and declare the Screw Cancer message. Now “Screw Cancer” is a popular campaign launched on the crowdfunding platform, www.INDIEGOGO.com. The “Screw Cancer” collection of well-designed gift and lifestyle products, which includes jewelry, hydration, tools and apparel is the creation of an international partnership between Grappleworks and The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

“The launch of the ‘Screw Cancer’ lifestyle brand on Indiegogo.com galvanizes the need for a unique cause marketing brand that connects with a young adult demographic with the funds from the sale of the ‘Screw Cancer’ products directly supporting programs like our ‘1:1 patient navigation program’ and The Ulman House,” Yesto said. Both Yetso and Fallows say they wondered if “Screw Cancer” could be the next big thing to open the conversation and unite young adults. As the number of cancer diagnoses continues to rise among young adults, their hope is a world without cancer. Until then, Ulman House and Grappleworks officials say they will continue their mission to empower young adult cancer survivors, their family and friends, to unite together, encouraging conversations so no one feels helpless or alone.

“One of their biggest projects to date is Ulman House, a home for young adult cancer patients who are traveling to Baltimore to seek treatment,” Yesto said. The House is scheduled to open in early December and officials are looking for community members to get involved. There are many volunteer opportunities to help set-up the home and cook meals for patients. For more information or to volunteer, visit: https://ulmanfund.org/ulmanhouse/. “If you’re coming out to volunteer why not pre-purchase a Screw Cancer T-shirt or a unique gift in time for Christmas,” Fallows said. “It’s a great way to show support to loved ones battling [cancer] while also contributing to the Ulman mission.” To purchase “Screw Cancer” gifts, visit www.indiegogo.com or directly to https://igg.me/at/screwcancergifts.

How to cope with the holiday blues By Melanie Bennett, Ph.D. This article is part of the #STCPreventionMatters campaign from the University of Maryland Medical Center. For more information about the campaign and the Center for Injury Prevention and Policy, visit: www.umm.edu/PreventionMatters Many people experience stress during the busy holiday season. Rushing around, worrying about others, missing people, navigating tough relationships— all can be difficult to manage, especially when we are surrounded by messages that we are “supposed” to feel happy. More than 60 percent of people report feeling down during the holidays, often referred to as the “holiday blues.” Most people report feeling stressed, stretched, and overwhelmed by commitments during the holidays, and many people are caught between feeling bad and wishing they could feel better. Fortunately, there are many things that people can do as the holidays approach to look ahead, identify situations that will cause stress, and make a plan to cope with them. Here are several tips for managing the holiday blues: 1. Plan ahead. The business of the holidays can leave us rushing from place to place with little time to think about what we’re doing or how we want a situation to go. Take a few minutes to plan, both at the start of the season, and again at the start or end of each day. This planning can involve thinking about the things that are on your schedule, identifying what must be done and what can be put off, and organizing your time. Such planning will allow you to see if your schedule is realistic or needs to be changed to reduce stress.

2. Identify activities that make you happy. Many people end their holidays wishing they had spent more time doing things that they enjoy. Think about the activities that make you happy and plan to do them. If you like baking, make sure you have time for that. If you like to have quiet time to enjoy holiday music or watch a special movie with a friend, move that to the top of your to-do list. If you’re not much interested in the holidays, get involved in other activities that you enjoy. Schedule these pleasant activities so that you have time set aside to do them. The goal is to make sure you do more of what brings you pleasure and makes you feel happy. 3. Accept that some activities and situations are difficult. Many people

find that the holidays are filled with commitments and obligations that leave them feeling stressed or sad. Review the activities that are difficult for you and plan ways to limit how much time you spend on them. This may mean skipping a holiday gathering that would cause you stress or saying “no” to a request that you don’t have time to fulfill. If this is difficult for you, plan what you want to say and how you want to say it – you can even practice until you feel comfortable. Setting these boundaries can be difficult but doing less or saying no can free up time for those activities that bring you joy. 4. Ask for help. If you start to feel down, talk to someone about it— a friend, family member, co-worker, or

professional. People often feel alone with negative emotions, but most people have felt bad during one holiday or another and can relate to what you’re going through. If you would rather not have an emotion-filled conversation, simply asking someone to grab coffee, run an errand for you, or go for a walk can help you feel better. 5. Take care of yourself. Whatever helps you cope with stress all year long will be even more important to help you cope during the holidays. Exercise, sleep, eating healthy— all are very important to ward off the holiday blues. Schedule time to do things that make you feel calm, such as listening to music, taking a bath, reading a good book, practicing relaxation, or taking a walk. For more intense negative thoughts such as extended feelings of depression, isolation or loneliness, please reach out— help and understanding are only a phone call away.

Ravens look to bounce back after bye week By Tyler Hamilton The Baltimore Ravens started the season with an impressive 47 - 10 win over the Buffalo Bills. Things were really looking good for them after shutting out the Tennessee Titans 21 - 0 in week 6. Entering week 7, the Ravens had a 4 - 2 record before things started to spiral out of control. Coming from the bye week, Baltimore is stuck in a three-game losing streak and sporting a 4 - 5 record. They'll look to turn things around starting in Sunday's game against their AFC North Division rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. "The bye came at a great time. It allowed us to refresh and regroup. We have seven weeks to make some noise, to play our style of football and win as many games as possible," said cornerback Brandon Carr. "Guys came back with a bounce in their step." The Pittsburgh Steelers sit on top of the division thanks to a 6-2-1 record. Baltimore split their two games against the

Steelers, winning one on the road and losing the other at home just before the bye. The Cincinnati Bengals currently have the lowest playoff seed with a 5 - 4 record, which places them a game ahead of the Ravens. Cincinnati beat the Ravens earlier this year so winning this week is imperative for Baltimore if they plan on making a playoff push. "We just have to win one game right now. That's where our mindset is right now. Everyone is laser focused on Cincinnati," said guard Marshall Yanda. The second half of the season can prove to be a make or break period for head coach John Harbaugh who has been on the hot seat recently. Quarterback Joe Flacco may also be in the midst of a passing of the torch situation as well.

Make a lasting, positive impact this holiday season: Give family and friends gifts from the Arbor Day Foundation Nebraska City, Neb.— Celebrate this year’s holiday season with friends and loved ones while supporting conservation and tree planting with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation. •Returning for the ninth season in a row, Give-A-Tree cards from the Arbor Day Foundation offer a unique holiday giving opportunity with conservation benefits that will endure for generations. And again, this year, Give-A-Tree cards can be purchased individually and with customized text. Cards can be purchased for $5.95. •Purchasing the Arbor Day Foundation’s coffee helps preserve rain forests in Central and South America. The Foundation’s coffee, a part of the Rain Forest Rescue program, is shade-grown under the canopy of Latin American rain forests. Unlike sun-grown coffee farms, this traditional shade-grown method gives the coffee a rich and delicious flavor. Cost per bag is $16.44, including shipping. •The Foundation’s Trees in Celebration program allows the giver to honor loved ones while supporting crucial con-

servation efforts. For each dollar donated, one tree is planted in a highneed forest, and recipients are given a certificate showing them where the trees were planted. •Give the gift of membership with the Arbor Day Foundation and recipients will be sent 10 free trees, which will be shipped at the right time of year for planting. Membership levels vary and begin with a $10 contribution. “The holidays are a time for thinking about others, and as you do, take a moment to think about what you can do to protect the beauty and splendor of the earth,” said Matt Harris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “We encourage everyone to give gifts that will have a lasting impact for generations to come.” To purchase holiday gifts that give back to the planet, visit arborday.org.
