The Milwaukee City Council ap-. proved the lawsuit Friday. The council's decision came a day after the U.S. Department of Education said the DPI should make decisions about special education funding in charter schools. At issue is who is ultimately responsible for providing services to disabled students the city and its charter schools, or the Department of Public Instruction through Milwaukee Public Schools. The federal education department said Thursday that the char- . ter schools are public schools which means they have to accept children with disabilities. The city's lawsuit filed against DPI seeks full funding for the disabled students. Charter schools, which state law allows the city to sanction, operate independently of some state rules but still qualify for public funding. The city's three charter schools expected to get about $6,100 per student this year. Instead, the state is funding eligible low-income students at the level of the private-school choice program, about $4,950. Oprah remembers the Milwaukee years Oprah Winfrey may have an estimated worth of$550 million, but she remembers her days growing up in Milwaukee, when her mother was on welfare, raising three children and working as a housekeeper.

But I think it was necessary, because that is what gave me this . . . ambition," Winfrey said. Winfrey, whose popular syndicated talk show debuted in 1986, spent the years following her parents' breakup shuttling between Tennessee and Milwaukee, where she spent some of her elementary and high school years. Since that time, Winfrey's show has helped her climb to 349th on Forbes magazine's list of the 400 richest Americans.

Grief Specialist Andrea Torres, M.A. Participation in a focused event, such as a funeral or memorial service, gives a sense of control and a purpose beyond the overwhelming feelings flooding a newly bereaved person. Support and acknowledgement of loss are shared during these public rituals. During the coming months there are numerous opportunities for communal rituals. Many churches celebrate All Saints Day; funeral homes, hospices, hospitals and support groups provide holiday support meetings and services. Our annual holiday Notes of Remembrance rnterfarth services will be November 8 in Madison and December 5 in Stoughton. Private rituals also provide an opportunity to grieve, remember and heal. Examples include: writing thank you cards, visiting the grave, fixing the deceased's favorite food, lighting a candle, listening to a special song, setting up a memorial fund or making a donation. You choose and create unqiue ways of honoring her or his memory. Whether public or private, the essential quality of ritual is a healing beyond words which touches you deeply in a positive way and helps you Hve beyond your loss. CRESS QrSaafaaie OlOBamWlY.
