Three “Legacy Leaders” Recognized By Bacon On House Floor For Black History Month

On February 20 in a ceremony at Compassion in Action, Inc. 2001 North 35th Street, Rep. Don Bacon (NE-02) presented Ella Willis, Teela Mickles and Bettie McDonald with copies of the Floor Speech he delivered to Congress on February 4. The remarks, recognizing them for their contributions to Omaha as part of Black History Month, are made a permanent part of the Congressional Record.

Willis is the head of Neighborhood Action and Fact Association and she has been working diligently in the Omaha community for decades. Mickles is the founder of Compassion in Action; a faith based, non-profit organization that serves individuals confined in the state correctional facilities and families affected by incarceration. McDonald is the co-founder of Native Omaha Days; a week- long home-coming event that celebrates the community’s historical and cultural legacies.

Rep. Bacon sought input from the community for this recognition through a committee that consisted of Terry Sanders, publisher and president on the Omaha Star; Thomas Warren, executive director of the Urban League NE; and Marcus Bell, president of 100 Black Men Omaha.

“We can never thank these three incredible women for the impact they have made in the community, but they will forever be remembered in the history of our nation because of their inclusion in the Congressional record,” said Bacon. “I also want to thank the committee for their work in helping us identify and select the honorees this year.”

Struggling to sell one multi-million dollar home currently on the market won’t stop actress and singer Jennifer Lopez from expanding her property collection. Lopez has reportedly added to her real estate holdings an eight-plus acre estate in Bel-Air anchored by a multi-level mansion.

The property, complete with a 30-seat screening room, a 100-seat amphitheater and a swimming pond with sandy beach and outdoor shower, was asking about $40 million, but J. Lo managed to make it hers for $28 million. As the Bronx native acquires a new home in California, she is trying to sell a gated compound.
