Statistics show that most baby boomers have a strong desire to remain independent as they age. These hardworking Americans are turning their noses up at the idea of spending their golden years in a strange nursing home. They have an unshakeable yearning to live life at home as long as possible. This factor, combined with advances in modern medicine that are helping seniors live longer, has set the stage for more home care franchise opportunities than ever before.
Research by the University of Alabama shows that more than seven million people in the U.S. need some form of home care. This fact is bolstered by the rising trend of "aging in place."

Ed Hennings, a Milwaukee man who spent 20 years in prison, is using his business Go Time Trucking to deliver inspiration and lead by example.
MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee man who spent nearly half his life in prison has done more than turn his own life around; he's helping others in the city.
One of Go Time Trucking's goals is to help people who are struggling in life get back into the driver's seat. It's not just about trucks delivering items, but inspiration.
"He's an example for everybody, because so many of us we are Ed. His story is our story," said employee Todd Jones.
Milwaukee-born Ed Hennings says he's in the "inspiration" business. He is the first to tell you: When he was young, he took the wrong road in life.
"I said, ‘Who am I fooling trying to go to school do all these good things. I really belong back with guys in the neighborhood just making the fast money,’" Hennings said. "Once you go one way down that road, change is the hardest thing for any human being on earth."
A big change came when Hennings went to prison in 1996, convicted of first-degree reckless homicide. He said he used his 20 years in prison to build momentum and turn things around.
"Your struggle is actually a blessing," he said.
Hennings got out of prison in 2016 and went on to start a barbershop, his own shoe line and his company Go Time Trucking.
"You just keep chugging away," Hennings said. "People see ‘Ed did it. Ed was gone for this length of time, so I think I can do it.’"
Now, he wants to lead by example – giving employees like Jones the key to rerouting their lives.
"Me myself, I was in prison for 25 years. I went in when I was 15 years old," Jones said.
Hennings' other employees have similar backgrounds and, now, new direction.
"We see Ed, it’s like a walking example of a billboard of what we can be, but it’s also an accountability thing because there’s no excuses," said Jones.
"Whether it be in prison or out here in the free world, there’s a lot of brokenness, so people need some inspiration and to know they can do it," Hennings said.
Hennings holds Zoom calls every Saturday to help people learn how to get into the business and into a truck of their own. He has information about those classes available online.
INDIANAPOLIS -- — When the Milwaukee Bucks needed a steadying presence Friday night at Indiana, Giannis Antetokounmpo provided it — even from the free-throw line.The Eastern Conference All-Star captain finished with 41 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and made five of eight free throws during the final four minut...
The Eastern Conference All-Star captain finished with 41 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and made five of eight free throws during the final four minutes to help Bucks fend off Indiana's second-half rally for a 141-131 victory.
“We had a good rhythm and were able to just hang on in the second half," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “These road wins are pretty sweet and there were some real positive things, especially in the first half.”
Jrue Holiday added 23 points and nine assists for Milwaukee, Khris Middelton added 17 despite playing just 15 minutes.
Budenholzer even liked Antetokounmpo's form on his late free throws as the Central Division-leading Bucks won their third straight, this one in front of a surprisingly friendly road crowd.
For the Pacers, it was a familiar script — slow start, deep hole and late comeback. They've won an NBA-leading 11 times after trailing by double digits this season, twice after trailing by 20 or more points.
“The starts we've been getting off to have been atrocious,” T.J. McConnell said after finishing with 19 points and nine assists. “It was the pace. When we get out and run and play with pace, we're pretty good. When we can't get a stop, you see what happened in the first half.'
Milwaukee took control quickly with a balanced attack and incredible 3-point shooting. The Bucks' ninth 3 capped a 15-3 run to close the first quarter and gave them a 45-30 lead. The charge continued through the second quarter as the margin expanded to 85-52 in the final minute of the half.
But Indiana finally answered in the third quarter, trimming it to 114-99 and then methodically got closer in the fourth while repeatedly sending Antetokounmpo to the free-throw line. With 3:27 to go, they were within 131-124 but the Bucks didn't let Indiana get any closer.
Bucks: The 85 first-half points were a season high. ... Antetokounmpo was playing his third straight game since missing five games with an injured right knee and was 7 of 18 on free throws. ... Brook Lopez had 15 points and Pat Connaughton had 14 as the Bucks made 19 3s.

Let’s talk about two things.
One: How did you feel about how the Marquette men’s basketball game was going at halftime, when the Golden Eagles held a narrow 33-32 lead over DePaul?
Two: How did you feel about how the Marquette men’s basketball game was going with 1:54 remaining, which is when they registered their largest lead of the afternoon, 22 points, and led 88-64?
For me, the answers are “relatively confident that they can adjust at halftime and leave Chicago with the win” and “wondering why they don’t build the whole plane out of David Joplin.”
The big reason for the 19 point Marquette margin in the second half as they hung 56 points on DePaul and scored 1.60 points per trip down the floor after halftime? The pride of Brookfield Central, David Joplin. The Jopwagon went for 18 of his game high 28 points in the second half, including a patently ridiculous 6-for-8 from long range.... and he did this in just 11 minutes of playing time.
Let’s fast forward through the first half, stopping briefly to mention that the Golden Eagles led by eight at one point, 24-16, and then went without scoring for five minutes and only MU’s first free throw make on five first half attempts with two seconds left sent Marquette to halftime with a one point lead.
The first points of the second half were an omen of things to come, as Tyler Kolek cashed an offensive rebound by Olivier-Maxence Propser for a long range bomb and a four point Marquette lead. The first five minutes were more back-and-forth action kind of like how the first half had gone. Joplin subbed in at the 15:48 mark, and on MU’s second possession after that, he hit a three.
That triple was the first in a 9-0 personal run for Joplin, elevating the Golden Eagles to a 50-38 advantage. It was an 11-0 run overall, since Oso Ighodaro had scored the most recent bucket in the game. That’s a big tipping point, but DePaul’s Umoja Gibson had a thing or two to say about it. He answered Joplin’s series of threes with a pair of his own, so it was only a six point game. That’s where OMax Prosper comes in, as he hit two three-pointers of his own surrounding a transition layup by Stevie Mitchell, and the second triple for Prosper came with a foul on Da’Sean Nelson. OMax cashed the freebie, and Marquette was up 13, 59-46.
That’s a 20-8 Marquette run.
The refs handed Gibson a four-point play on the other end, inventing contact by Mitchell in transition as Gibson collapsed upon landing after his jumper. In fact, for a while, it seemed like Marquette was on the verge of breaking the game wide open or even wider than it was if you prefer, but Gibson was the one dragging the Blue Demons along within shouting distance.
Joplin hit another three with a little less than nine minutes to play to make the lead 15, and another one with 6:28 to go for another 15 point margin. Things were starting to solidify in Marquette’s direction, and after Javan Johnson threw a pass away, Kolek bombed in a three to make it 76-58, with just 5:43 to go. 70 seconds later, another three by Joplin put the Golden Eagles up 20 for the first time, and things were pretty much over.
We have brushed up against it and in fact mentioned it up at the top, but while David Joplin’s scoring was a big reason why Marquette won this game, we have to tip our cap to Tyler Kolek. Marquette’s junior point guard had himself an amazing day, getting 24 points on 9-for-14 shooting and draining four of his six long range attempts. That’s not the fun part. The fun part is that he also had 10 assists and if not for Stevie Mitchell tapping a DePaul miss to Kolek in the closing minutes, he would have gotten his 10th rebound as well. As it stands, he finished with nine caroms to go with his three steals as well, and so he falls one rebound short of Marquette’s first triple-double since Dwyane Wade ran wild against Kentucky in the 2003 NCAA tournament.
Meanwhile, in the “couldn’t be heard over the sound of those two guys” department, Olivier-Maxence Prosper went for 13 points and eight rebounds, while Oso Ighodaro finished with 10 points, four rebounds, eight assists, two blocks, and a steal. Those are great games! Just happened in the shadow of Joplin and Kolek, that’s all.
It was very important for Marquette to have multiple guys come up big in this one, as the Golden Eagles started the day shorthanded and got even more shorthanded from there. Freshman guard Sean Jones missed this one as he’s been apparently dealing with a wrist issue for a little while now. Sophomore guard Kam Jones took a bonk to his hip in the first half, was never quite right on it through halftime, then only played four minutes in the second half as a result of all of that.
Shaka Smart on Sean Jones' wrist injury."He'd been playing through it. Practicing through it. The X-ray was negative. Practiced yesterday really well and then we got out here before the game and his wrist was just a little more swollen." #mubb— Ben Steele (@BenSteeleMJS) January 28, 2023
Shaka Smart on Kam Jones:"Kam kind of hurt his hip a little bit in the first half. He tried to go back in but you could see he just didn't have the same ability to play as hard." #mubb https://t.co/Rpr6xdYhDn— Ben Steele (@BenSteeleMJS) January 28, 2023

Up Next: Can I interest you in a pair of home games this coming week? With the Golden Eagles currently tied with Xavier atop the Big East standings at 9-2 since the Musketeers lost at Creighton on Saturday, Marquette will first host Villanova on Wednesday night. Tipoff on that one is set for 7:30pm Central on FS1. The 10-10 Wildcats have won two straight as I write this, but they will host Providence on Sunday afternoon before making the trip to Milwaukee.

Just about all of southeastern Wisconsin still has a good chance of at least 3 inches – or more – of snowfall by Sunday morning, Jan. 29.
The biggest factors moving forward is where the heaviest snow bands set up as they interact with dryer air, and if we get lake-enhanced snow rates later Saturday night. Both of these variables could easily bump up totals locally. As of now, a safe bet is a broad 3-inch to 6-inch forecast for a majority of the region.
The highest accumulations are in areas closer to the state line and near Lake Michigan such as Kenosha County, Milwaukee County, Ozaukee County, and Racine County. Lake-enhanced snow will be possible late Saturday night into early Sunday morning — that is favored again for areas in the closest proximity to Lake Michigan.
There will be periods of just light snow, but bursts of heavier rates will be possible into Saturday night. Late afternoon and evening is when we'll likely see our fastest accumulation of snowfall.
Impacts: Plan on traveling in slippery road conditions. Scattered blowing and drifting may be possible Saturday night in early Sunday morning with increasing winds, especially in open areas.

The Brewers have signed outfielder Skye Bolt and right-hander Colin Rea to minor league deals, ...
Bolt joins the third organization of his professional career. He’s spent most of the last eight years with the A’s, joining the pro ranks as a fourth-round draftee in 2015. Bolt debuted with Oakland briefly in 2019, getting into five games. He didn’t appear in the big leagues in 2020, then split the 2021 campaign between Oakland and the Giants. Returning to the A’s late in that season via waiver claim, he held his 40-man roster spot until last September.
The 29-year-old has played in 81 major league games in his career. More than half came last season, as he tallied 116 plate appearances over 42 contests with Oakland. After missing the first couple months of the season thanks to an oblique strain, he got some run as the A’s primary center fielder. The switch-hitter managed only a .198/.259/.330 line with four homers and a slightly elevated 25.9% strikeout rate before being outrighted off the 40-man roster.
Bolt hasn’t hit well in limited MLB time thus far. The UNC product owns a .313/.399/.526 line through parts of three Triple-A campaigns, and while that’s no doubt aided by the Pacific Coast League’s favorable hitting environment, that’s still above-average production at the top minor league level. Bolt’s a quality runner who can play all three outfield positions, so he doesn’t need to make a huge offensive impact to carve out a depth role.
Milwaukee has Christian Yelich locked into left field, while top prospect Garrett Mitchell is the favorite for center field run. Tyrone Taylor is the top right fielder, with recent signee Brian Anderson set to bounce between third base and right field. Jesse Winker is the primary designated hitter but could see some corner outfield action, while Blake Perkins secured a major league contract this offseason despite having no prior MLB experience. Top prospect Sal Frelick doesn’t seem far off MLB readiness after reaching Triple-A last season, though he’s not yet on the 40-man roster.
Bolt will try to crack the group in exhibition play but could open next season with Triple-A Nashville as a depth option. He’s out of minor league option years, so the Brewers would have to keep him in the big leagues or designate him for assignment if he earns a promotion at any point.
Rea has some familiarity with the Milwaukee organization. His most recent big league appearance was a six inning relief outing for the Brew Crew in 2021. The 32-year-old has pitched for four different clubs over parts of four big league campaigns. His most extended work came in a 2016 season divided between the Padres and Marlins, where he pitched to a 4.82 ERA through 102 2/3 innings.
An Indiana State graduate, Rea has just 20 big league frames since the conclusion of that 2016 season. He made seven starts in Nashville during the 2021 campaign, posting a 2.27 ERA over 35 2/3 innings. Last year, Rea pitched for the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks in Japan, logging an even 100 innings through 23 outings. He allowed just fewer than four earned runs per nine with a fairly modest 19.6% strikeout rate but a solid 7.8% walk percentage. He’ll offer some rotation or multi-inning relief depth in camp.
