SUBURBAN LIFE
— Wheaton officials voice concerns about proposed facility for new, expectant single mothers  Facility proposed for former Wheaton Inn – ERIC SCHELKOPF
http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2016/12/06/wheaton-officials-voice-concerns-about-proposed-facility-for-new-expectant-single-mothers/ah07kpi/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Greg Dose, attorney for the applicant, said the facility would not be considered a day-care facility and therefore would not have to be licensed by the state. “This is their own residence,” Dose said. “They are not taking their child to another location.” That drew concerns from councilwoman Suzanne Fitch, who said she thought the facility would provide child care so mothers could attend college classes. As proposed, they would have to be enrolled in college to participate in the program. Mayor Michael Gresk also voiced concerns about who would be watching the infants. “To the casual observer, it would appear that if you are going to have 8, 10, 12 kids and you are going to have mothers going to classes during the course of the day, somebody’s got to watch the infants and perhaps toddlers along the way also,” Gresk said. Dose said he thought some of the women would do the babysitting while others attended college classes, but he was not sure of the arrangement. Florczak-Seeman was not able to attend the Dec. 5 meeting. Councilman Thor Saline also noted that floor plans for the facility show only 10 beds, although the facility could serve as many as 12 women. “Did I miss something, or will the plans change?” he asked. In response, Dose said he wasn’t sure. This would be the company’s first facility, which will be called The Butterfly Garden…A Place for Healing and Transformation.)

— Black Activists Launch Monthly Fee System For Whites To Pay Blacks – Alex Pfeiffer
http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/05/black-activists-launch-monthly-fee-system-for-whites-to-pay-blacks/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Liberal black activists have launched a monthly “subscription box” designed for white people “to not only financially support Black femme freedom fighters, but also complete measurable tasks in the fight against white supremacy.”  The subscription service is called Safety Pin Box and was launched last week. Wearing a safety pin has recently become a symbol within the liberal community for one to show solidarity with minorities. The group is headed by Leslie Mac and Marissa Jenae Johnson. Johnson is one of the Black Lives Matter protesters who interrupted Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during a speech in Seattle last year. There are four different types of subscriptions offered by the group. The “e-ally box” is $25 a month and is “an electronic form of solidarity.” It comes with “exclusive ‘calls to action’ when urgent ally services are needed in times of crisis.” Ally is a term used by Black Lives Matter activists to describe white comrades.)
