In 1968, a mass of counterculture activists
spearheaded a massive protest in Chicago’s
Grant Park, hoping to draw attention away
from the Democratic National Convention and
onto their anti-Vietnam War demonstration. To
say their plan succeeded, is an understatement.
All eyes were on the “Chicago 7” after
the protest sparked a riot between police and
protestors, overtaking the city and leading to
political unrest (sound familiar?). Charged
with criminal conspiracy and crossing state
lines to incite a riot, the seven men and the
trial that followed became one of the most
infamous events in history. And with The Trial
Of The Chicago 7 (streaming on Netflix),
the story comes to audiences by way of Mr.
Courtroom Drama himself: Aaron Sorkin.
Acclaimed for his Oscar-winning screenwriting
but here directing his second film,
Sorkin assembles a top-notch cast of actors,
including Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron
Cohen, Jeremy Strong, Frank Langella, and
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, plus short but sweet
appearances by Kelvin Harrison Jr, and Michael
Keaton, to name a few. To be expected
in any Sorkin work, there is a lot going
on here: from fast-paced dialogue to quick
cuts that jump between archival footage and
reenactments, The Trial Of The Chicago 7 is
sealed with the stamp of Sorkin. If you love
his previous work, I won’t have to sell you
on this film. I know you’ll watch it anyway.
A line that’s repeated throughout the film
is the protestor’s battle cry “The whole
world is watching!” That was true in 1969,
and it’s still true today. Here we are, in
2020, reliving eerily similar scenarios of
unlawful police brutality, peaceful demonstrations
turned into aggressive brawls, and
a legal system than runs on bias (conscious
Sorkin said it himself at the drive-in screening
I attended at the Rose Bowl: “This film
will upset you. Anger you. But above all
else, it will inspire you.” It’s no coincidence
that the film’s release is just weeks before
the most important Presidential election of
our lives, and if there is one takeaway from
The Trial of the Chicago 7, it’s this: every
voice in our country matters, and has the
potential to change the world–even it starts
as just seven. •

Food Prices: Why They’re
Rising And How To Save
(BPT) - The COVID-19 pandemic has
affected food prices more than nearly any
other part of the household budget. In
April, the Food-at-Home Consumer Price
Index increased 2.7%, which was the
largest monthly jump since 1974. From
June 2019 to June 2020, food prices are up
5.6%. Why is this happening, and furthermore,
how can you save on your family’s
The food supply chain is made up of three
parts: production, processing, and retail. As
food items move down the supply chain,
value is added to the product.
• Production incudes the farms and ranches
that grow the food.
• Processing entails the manufacturers that
turn food from the farm into consumer-ready
options such as corn flakes or orange juice.
• Retail includes the stores where shoppers
purchase different food items.
There are several factors that regularly
influence food prices such as weather, farming
production, growth in the population and
trade. Sometimes there are shocks to the
food supply chain that have big influences
on prices, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
As communities quickly responded to the
COVID-19 pandemic, every stage of the food
supply chain saw costs increase. There are
four key trends that are influencing food costs:
Shift to eating at home: In a matter of two
months, approximately $23 billion in consumer
spending away from home was redirected
toward grocery stores as restaurants were
forced to close due to COVID-19, according
to FMI - The Food Industry Association.
Loss of foodservice demand: When restaurants
closed, farmers and ranchers lost a key
channel for their product. With fewer buyers,
it is costly or impractical to harvest, preserve
or store some food and beverage products.
Increasing production and processing
costs: During COVID-19, companies have
made investments and adjustments to
safeguard their products and employees.
This means costs for food production are
higher. Some manufacturers have been able to
innovate and find new markets for their
products, but these changes often entail
Increasing operating costs for grocery
stores: Compared to 2019, supermarket
operating costs were up 7.9% in April
2020 and 6.7% in May 2020, according to
USDA Economic Research Service. Grocery
stores have remained open during the
pandemic and have had to quickly adjust to
new regulations, safety and sanitation practices
and enhanced customer education - all
requiring resources. In addition, some areas
of the grocery store, including salad bars and
hot bars, have had to shut down, meaning a
loss of revenue.
For additional information, visit www.FMI.
The experts at FMI - The Food Industry
Association predict food prices may remain
high for a while but stress the food supply
chain is resilient and is likely to normalize
over time. Regardless, there are ways shoppers
can save money while at the store:
Plan ahead: Planning meals and snacks
for the week before heading to the grocery
store helps ensure you only purchase what
you need. Use a shopping list or app to help
stay organized. Check your store’s circular,
website or app for coupons and specials
ahead of time.
Compare options: Consider purchasing
store brands, usually priced less and with
equal taste and nutrition. When possible,
purchase bulk protein options for freezing
extras. Compare unit prices of different brands
and package sizes to save. The “unit price”
is the price per ounce, pound or pint, and is
typically listed on the shelf tag. Canned or
frozen food options can have an extended
shelf-life and help stretch your dollar.
Seek out assistance programs: The Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
and Women, Infants & Children nutrition
program, or WIC, help families during times
of need. Visit FeedingAssistance.com for
more information on these federal programs
and eligibility. •
