By Marian Wright Edelman Publisher note- This is a good article, but bad for small businesses that are trying to stay a float. One of our country’s most cherished values is the idea that if you work hard you can get ahead, be part of the middle class, raise a family comfortably, and ensure your children will do better than you did. But this is a hollow promise to countless families today. The sad truth is you can work full time in America and not be able to meet your family’s basic needs. A parent working full time at the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour earns $15,080 a year before taxes. That’s $4,700 below the poverty level for a parent with two children.

How to Deal With Rejection Words to Live by

Dr. Lonnie G. McCowan, pastor of Miracle Center of Ventura

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan We reject things on a daily basis -- we reject items we don’t want, ideas we don’t like and opportunities we don’t see fit. Rejection is as much a part of our world as is approval. It drives a healthy system of competition and ensures a high standard of quality. But what happens when we as human beings reject each other? Rejection comes as one of the most brutal stakes to the heart because it deals a direct blow to our ego. The ego is the inherent part of the self which holds intact our pride, esteem and self-worth. When the ego is bruised, a core element of our being is damaged. We often feel reduced to a lesser version of ourselves. We automatically begin to blame ourselves, assuming there must be something wrong with us and criticizing the behavior that led to our rejection. Of the many forms of rejection, being denied by a love interest is most agonizing. We are grieved by a deep sense of bitterness and spite, both against the other person and against ourselves. Ironically, though, we feel an inexpli-

cable sense of longing -- a stronger desire towards the rejecter than ever before. As a pastor, I’ve seen many become stuck in a cycle of voluntary, unrequited love. The more they are rejected, the more they “wanted” the person rejecting them. They refused to give up. Rejection can cause cycles of unhealthy emotions and behavior. To change the hold rejection has on you, first solidify your self-worth. Bear in mind these five truths the next time you feel overwhelmed by rejection. 1. It really isn’t you. When somebody rejects you, they are acting on their own insecurities and fears. Take comfort in knowing that the person who rejects you is dealing with their own personal issues and that you most likely did nothing to cause their decision. Rejection -- especially harsh or cruel rejection -- is a manifestation of selfinsufficiencies and a lack of self-tolerance. 2. It happened for a greater reason. When we feel rejected, we trap ourselves in a moment of doubt and distress. But we must learn to see past the fleeting period of pain and acknowledge that there is a higher purpose to not getting what (or whom) we want. That higher purpose is usually revealed in time. I’ve had many people tell me that they felt awful when someone they loved turned them away, only to find the perfect partner when they least expected it. When that happened they became grateful that they Paid Advertisement

were rejected, or else they would’ve never met the new and better person. In retrospect, they laugh at the fits of emotions which rejection invoked. We all discover the greater purpose of our pain in due time. 3. This is not a new pain. Rejection can be a lifelong ordeal stemming from childhood. For some children who were abandoned by a parent, rejection becomes a recurring challenge to conquer throughout life. They may overreact when they feel turned down and not know that this is caused by a subconscious memory. Understanding the primary source of rejection and the impact it had on you can help you deal with this unpleasant emotion. Accept that this is not the first or last time you’ll feel the ache of rejection, but that you’ve defeated this emotion before and will emerge stronger from each instance. 4. They’re really missing out. A person who rejects you cannot comprehend your inner and outer beauty. So why let someone hurt you who doesn’t see the full spectrum of your wonderful being? The next time you feel rejected, remind yourself of your amazing traits, you’re positive characteristics and your invaluable qualities which undoubtedly exist but may have been overlooked by someone else. 5. A chance to evolve. Rejection offers us an opportunity to evolve through and learn from our experiences. It allows us to look REJECTION, See page 12A

By Inez Lanns A new season has arrived, and that season is spring! This is the time of the year when the days get longer, so we begin to see the sun more often. The air and ground temperature increase more rapidly, which makes a perfect place for things to grow. Flowering plants begin to bloom during this time. Spring is known for the time of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, and resurrection. It is also known as a time for new life to be born. It is a time for things to grow! We can be actively engaged in many areas of our lives, but time does not

slow down nor stop for any of us. This season is here, and since we have knowledge of the beginning of this new season, we need grab a hold of it. It is the perfect time for the dreams and visions that have been lying dormant throughout the winter to grow and blossom. It is a time to be refreshed – to provide new vigor and energy; to stimulate. It is not a time to sit and do nothing. It’s time to start taking the proper steps to help make those dreams come true! “Spring is the time of plans and projects.” ~Leo Tolstoy The spring season comes after winter and before summer. Winter is the coldest season, and summer is the hottest season; yet, spring falls right in between the two. Due to the warm weather coming into the dry we can often find some unstable weather during this time. Well made plans may have seemingly fallen apart, or been delayed in the previous season, but we are to keep pushing for new-

ness is being born. During spring we feel the warm weather come in, but we may also have some days filled with rain. Although the “April Showers” come they bring about “May Flowers.” Rain comes and washes away the old things, and also waters the ground for new things to grow. Whether we want to accept it or not, the new season is here! Spring has arrived, and we can jump on board during this season of rejuvenation, renewal and resurrection and watch growth take place in our lives. Or we can sit around and observe the blooming, blossoming and birth of people, flowers, animals, dreams, projects and visions take place all around us. “You can cut all of the flowers, but you cannot stop Spring from coming.” ~Pablo Neruda Inez Lanns was born and raised in Ventura County. She currently writes a blog on her web site: www.inezknows.com.

CAMARILLO – The CSU Channel Islands Choir recently held the Choral Spectacular, a rare concert combining the talents of the Channel Islands Choir, Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra and the First United Methodist Church Chancel Choir in a moving performance of Brahms’ Requiem. The groups performed two separate concerts. The first was held on Saturday, March 22, at the Studio Channel Islands Art Center at 2222 Ventura Blvd. in downtown Camarillo. The second, on Sunday, March 23, took place at the First United Methodist Church at 1338 E. Santa Clara Street in Ventura. Brahms’ Requiem is a sweeping, emotional work, popular with singers and audiences alike. The Channel Islands Choir chose to

perform Brahms’ Requiem for this year's Choral Spectacular program as an anniversary tribute to the victims of last year's Boston Marathon tragedy on April 15, as well as in remembrance of a beloved former choir member, the late Rev. William Gutkneckt. A highlight was the dual performances of soloists Juan Dunn and Rabihah Davis Dunn – a husband and wife team from the Bay Area. Both have long-established careers as professional baroque, opera and oratorio singers; however, they have never performed together before in public. Baritone Juan Dunn has sung for more than two decades, including over 50 performances with the Washington National Opera in Washington, D.C. Soprano Rabihah Davis Dunn has received many awards

and honors during her 17year career, including winning the Grand Prize from the Bel Canto Foundation. She will have her San Francisco debut shortly in Bizet's Pearl Fishers, but has made time in her performance schedule to appear at the Choral Spectacular. “Brahms finished his Requiem in 1869 after the death of his mother; however, the piece was intended to be a message of hope rather than loss. He wrote it as a comfort to the living who are left behind,” said Choral and Orchestral Director Dr. KuanFen Liu. “His Requiem took Germany by storm when it was first performed, and its comforting message for those dealing with loss still speaks to people of all cultures and faiths 145 years later.” CHOIR, See page 12A

From page 1A Publisher note- This is a good article, but bad for small businesses that are trying to stay a float. Please see Ventura County Living Wage Chart on page 11B. Children 2014” report highlights, in no state can a parent working full time at the minimum wage afford a fair-market rent two-bedroom apartment and have enough left over to pay for food, utilities, and other necessities. Child care costs alone can eat up more than half of a parent’s paycheck: the average cost of centerbased child care for an infant is $9,500 a year. Most experts agree that families need to earn twice the poverty level to be able to begin to provide adequately for their children. Today, we have an opportunity to begin to realign our values by enacting the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013 which would raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour, the first increase since 2009, and raise the minimum wage for tipped workers for the first time since 1991. The current federal minimum wage is worth 32 percent less in

Marian Wright Edelman inflation-adjusted terms than at its peak in 1968. If it had grown at the same rate as wages for a typical worker in America since 1968, it would already be $10.65 an hour. But if it had grown at the same rate as productivity of the economy during that period it would be $18.30 today. So increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would restore the minimum wage closer to what it would have been if it had kept up with average wages but still leave it far below what it should be, given productivity and economic growth since the late 1960s. Nationwide, increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 would increase

It would lift 900,000 people above the official poverty threshold. Nearly 90 percent of those benefiting would be 20 years or older and over half would be working full time. According to the Economic Policy Institute those affected by the minimum wage increase earn on average half of their family’s total income. The Economic Policy Institute has also found more than a quarter of those benefiting would be parents. Most importantly, the increase to $10.10 an hour would improve the lives of an estimated 14 million children — nearly one in five children in America — by helping their parents put nutritious food on the table, keep a roof over their families’ heads, and make sure their children get the health care they need to ensure they can develop to their full potential.

Sports News Jonathan Martin Traded to 49ers from Dolphins

By Janie McCauley SAN FRANCISCO — Jonathan Martin, the offensive tackle who accused a Miami Dolphins teammate of bullying, was traded to the San Francisco 49ers and will be reunited with his college coach, Jim Harbaugh. The Dolphins announced the move on the first day of NFL free agency. San Francisco then confirmed the trade, saying only that it would send an undisclosed draft choice to Miami and that Martin still must pass a physical to complete the deal. "Big news.... Beyond Blessed ... Opportunities are few in the NFL... Can't wait to get to work (hashtag)9erEmpire," Martin posted on Twitter. Martin's move cross country brings him back to the Bay Area to play again, and he has been at Stanford taking classes. "This is great for him to get back on the field and he's in Palo Alto right now.

Darren Sproles' Wife was Not Happy with How Saints Treated Her Husband

The wife of NFL running back Darren Sproles was not happy with the way her husband was treated by the New Or-

leans Saints. After learning that the team planned on trading her husband rather than releasing him as had expected, Michel Sproles

Darren Sproles expressed her "disappointment" in a post on Instagram. The post was subsequently deleted but the discontent lives on. Days before NFL free agency began, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported that the Saints were releasing Sproles. It would seem that his family was planning accordingly. The Saints then changed their reported plans at the eleventh hour due to increased interest in the running back from other teams. Making the change in plans all the more jarring, the 30-year-old NFL veteran appeared to learn of it on Twitter. The speedy playmaker would tell ESPN's Josina Anderson that he preferred to be released so that he choose his destination. "I don't know where they would send me because I have no control over it and I want to be able to pick," he told Anderson. "The good thing is none of the teams I'm told they're talking to are terrible." The Saints ended up trading the 30-year-old to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a fifth round NFL draft pick.

The Miami Heat Can't Handle 'The Truth’

LeBron James and the Miami Heat still can't seem to handle "The Truth." With the nickname famously bestowed upon him by Shaquille O'Neal stitched on the back of his jersey on Wednesday night, Paul Pierce led the Brooklyn Nets to another win over the Miami Heat. The 36-year-old veteran scored a game-high 29 points in Miami as the Nets improved to 3-0 against the Heat this season. He poured in 17 points in a scorching third quarter and later came through with a tie-breaking bucket late in the fourth. With the score 92-92 and less than two minutes remaining in regulation, Pierce got Dwyane Wade off his feet on the perimeter and then drove for a go-ahead layup.

Paul Pierce “From the time I woke up, I was locked in,” Pierce told reporters after the Nets' 96-95 win, via Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. “Like I said this morning, I understand that this is going to be one of our toughest games to date. You understand these times of year, as a veteran, because you’ve played in

so many of these games. You understand the mentality you have to have.” While Pierce is producing below is career averages in his first season in Brooklyn, he has been able to bring the right "mentality" to the court whenever facing James and the Heat. Pierce is averaging slightly more than 13 points per game this season but has far surpassed that figure in each of the Nets' wins over the Heat this season. He scored 19 in the first meeting, 23 in the second and 29. "I'm sure his antenna is raised in games like this, against us," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game, reported Tim Reynolds of The Associated Press.

BALTIMORE – The Obama Administration announced new steps to address growing concerns about troublesome student loan debt by requiring for-profit colleges to do a better job of preparing students for gainful employment – or risk losing access to taxpayer-funded federal student aid. The proposed regulations released by the U.S. Department of Education will protect students by limiting how much debt students can amass in career-training programs and by setting standards that dictate what for-profit colleges must do to ensure that their graduates find jobs. The NAACP released the following statement in response to the president’s proposal regarding career programs and for-profit colleges. From NAACP Interim President Lorraine C. Miller: “Many for-profit colleges offer high-cost degree programs that rarely lead to high-paying careers and saddle many of their students with heavy debt,”

President Barack Obama said NAACP Interim President and CEO Lorraine C. Miller. “The NAACP applauds new steps taken by the president to ensure that all students, but especially those in black and brown communities, are protected. We know that many for-profit colleges are like subprime mortgage lenders, targeting low-income students of color, falsely advertising a quality education at a fraction of the cost and time of a traditional institution.” “President Obama’s proposal to limit how much debt students can

NAACP Interim President Lorraine C. Miller amass while attending for-profit institutions is a step in the right direction,” Miller continued. “Between 2004 and 2010, black enrollment in forprofit bachelor’s programs grew by a whopping 264 percent, compared to a 24 percent increase in black enrollment in public fouryear programs. Institutions of higher education should not be allowed to prey on students who are simply trying to do what is right. In this country, education should be a vehicle to success not distress.”

The portrait of the American student buried under a crippling load of homework has been way overblown in news articles, argues a new report from the Brookings Institution, a Washingtonbased think tank. Homework loads have actually been stable over the last 30 years, despite front-page reports of overworked kids and a centuryold "war on homework," according to the report, one of three released Tuesday by Brookings' Brown Center on Education Policy. The study relies on federal surveys of students before they took the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a parental survey by MetLife, and University of California, Los Angeles's Higher Education Research Institute survey of college freshmen.

The image of kids drowning in homework has been swirling for years. In 1900, Ladies Home Journal editor Edward Bok called homework "A National Crime at the Feet of Parents," resulting in what the new study's author, Tom Loveless, called "an anti-homework campaign ... that grew into a national crusade."

In 1901, California banned homework for any student younger than 15. More recently, major publications have joined the war on homework, arguing it hurts students -- in part, said Loveless, due to the No Child Left Behind Act's focus on student performance. Last fall, The HOMEWORK, See page 12A

Camarillo, Calif. – CSU Channel Islands (CI) will host a statewide twoday conference highlighting successful efforts to prevent alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse among students.

It has already exceeded records for the number of registered program presenters and submissions. The conference will feature opening keynote remarks by CI President Richard R. Rush and a closing address by acclaimed Oscarwinning actor, author and philanthropist Louis Gossett Jr. Gossett will share his poignant story of film, TV and theatre success, behindthe-scenes struggles with racism, alcohol and drug addiction, and his renewed purpose as founder of the Eracism Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated

to stamping out racism and mentoring troubled youths. Scott and Julia Starkey, founders of the national program Aware Awake Alive, will also join in the conference. After losing their son Carson to alcohol poisoning in a fraternity hazing ritual, the Starkeys formed Aware Awake Alive to bring alcohol awareness and education programs to schools nationwide and prevent others from suffering a similar tragedy. Over the two-day conference, colleges and universities from around the state will share successful programs, lessons learned and plans for the future. A variety of topics will be covered, including alcohol and tobacco abuse prevention, bystander intervention and mental health issues. CI, See page 12A

State News Congresswoman Waters Urges Action Congresswoman Lee Stands with on Unemployment Insurance Workers to Protest Wage Theft

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) joined her Democratic colleagues in signing a discharge petition to extend unemployment insurance. This special congressional procedure allows a majority of members to bypass Speaker Boehner and force an up or down vote on the Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act (H.R. 3546). This bill would extend emergency unemployment insurance for nearly 5 million Americans looking for work through the end of the year. "Unemployment insurance is a critical lifeline for millions of families. In 2012, it kept 2.5 million people above the poverty line, including 600,000 children," said Congresswoman Waters. "Since Republi-

Congresswoman Maxine Waters cans let the program expire just three days after Christmas – more than 2 million Americans, including nearly 340,000 here in California, have been deprived of the support they need to get back on their feet." The number of people

who have lost their unemployment benefits as a result of the program’s Dec. 28th expiration surpassed two million last week, according to a new analysis from House Ways and Means Committee Democrats. Every week, 72,000 people, on average, are losing their unemployment benefits nationwide without an extension of the program. Despite the growing struggles, House Republicans have blocked multiple efforts by Democrats to bring up legislation to extend the program on the House floor. Last month a Senate measure to extend the program came one vote short of the 60 votes necessary to move the legislation forward. "Recently, I spoke at a WATERS, See page 12A

Assemblymember Rocky Chávez Named to Rules Committee

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Rocky Chávez (R-Oceanside) was appointed as a member of the Assembly Rules Committee today. He replaces Assemblymember Tim Donnelly who is running for Governor. The Assembly Rules Committee acts as the executive committee of the Assembly. Its most important function is to refer all bills and resolutions to the appropriate Committee. Rules Committee also grants rule waivers or suspensions and handles all personnel matters. Chávez serves as Vice-

Assemblymember Rocky Chávez Chair of the Assembly Higher Education and the Assembly Veterans Com-

mittee. He also serves on the Budget, Education, Health and Utilities and Commerce Committees. “I am excited to have the opportunity to take a role on this vital committee,” Chávez said. “I look forward to working with Assemblymember Gordon and the other members of the committee. By working with the members of the Committee, I hope to identify ways to streamline the bureaucracy of the Assembly and create a more efficient system that is responsive to the needs of Californians.”

Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) joined workers, community members, and faith leaders to protest wage theft in Oakland, CA. This protest was held days after the filing of classaction lawsuits claiming McDonald’s is deliberately and systematically infringing on their employees’ pay. The event is part of a nationwide series of actions calling on the fast food giant to stop this illegal wage theft and was held at the McDonald’s located at 2520 E 12th Street, Oakland, CA 94601. “I am proud to join workers in the fight against income

Runner Proposes Tax Help for Disabled Veterans

SACRAMENTO – George Runner announced today he is sponsoring legislation to enhance tax benefits for California’s disabled veterans. SB 1113, authored by Senator Steve Knight (R-Antelope Valley), will help ensure that disabled veterans who encounter bureaucratic delays can still claim a key property tax exemption. “These brave men and women have sacrificed greatly for our country and should not be penalized by a slow bureaucratic process,” said Runner. “This legislation is necessary to give veterans better access to the full benefit offered to them by a grateful state.” Under California law, veterans who receive a 100% disability rating from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may be eligible for a property tax exemption on the value of their home up to $124,932 or $187,399 in 2014 and equivalent amounts adjusted for inflation in future years. The exemption starts on the date of disability and disabled veterans may claim a refund for up to four years of back taxes paid. Unfortunately, due to VA backlogs, some veterans have had to wait more than four years to receive their disability rating certifications. As a result, they’ve missed out on thousands of dollars

George Runner in property tax refunds to which they were entitled and anticipated receiving. SB 1113 would increase the availability of refunds on taxes previously paid from four years to eight years, allowing veterans to receive the full benefit of their exemption, even if the rating process takes more than four years to complete. “Veterans wounded in the defense of our country have earned more than our appreciation and respect,” said Knight. “I am proud to author SB 1113 to ensure they have access to the tax benefits they deserve.” SB 1113, currently sponsored by Runner, will be considered for sponsorship by the full Board of Equalization at its March 25 hearing.

(Photo Credit: Mark Lennihan) NEW YORK — A black firefighters' group that had sued New York City, alleging discrimination, said that minority fire department applicants will be eligible to receive back pay totaling $98 million. The settlement of the 7-year-old case was announced by lawyers from the Center for Constitutional Rights, who repre-

The city says the figure includes back pay, fringe benefits and interest to the test takers. It wasn't immediately clear how many people would be affected by the settlement. Among other things,

The potential 2016 presidential contender has made a point of proposing Republican solutions to ease poverty that focus on the private sector. The Wisconsin lawmaker, who chairs the House Budget Committee, said in a statement that he "was inarticulate" about the point he was trying to make. "I was not implicating the culture of one community, but of society as a whole," Ryan said. "We have allowed our society to isolate or quarantine the poor rather than integrate people into our communities. The predictable result has been multigenerational poverty and little opportunity."

HOWELL, Mich. — High school officials in Michigan said they reprimanded students involved in posting racist messages on Twitter after a predominantly white basketball team defeated a team with black and white players. Messages were posted after Howell beat Grand Blanc 54-49 in a Class A boys’ regional final near Flint at Linden High School on Thursday, The Flint Journal reported. The Twitter posts referred to Howell’s team being white and included Ku Klux Klan and Hitler references. By Friday, the newspaper reported, the messages had been changed to apologies. Howell High School Principal Jason Schrock

said the school “responded to each instance and is moving forward.” Students involved in the posts weren’t affiliated with the school’s basketball program, The Detroit News and WHMI-FM reported. “We have addressed it with them and their families and we’d like to move on and focus on the positive things,” Schrock said. “Unfortunately, even though both teams played their hearts out and worked hard all season, there were students on both sides that did some egregious things that they regret and those

actions have started to overshadow the positive things that both sides are accomplishing.” Schrock said he hopes people in the Howell and Grand Blanc areas understand that what he believes were knee-jerk reactions of a few teens don’t speak for all of Howell. “A life lesson can be learned for these students without dragging a community’s reputation through the mud,” he said.

Paul Ryan to Meet with Congressional Black Caucus

WASHINGTON - Republican U.S. Representative Paul Ryan agreed to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus after members of the group branded his remarks about inner-city poverty this week "highly offensive". The controversy began after Ryan said on William Bennett's talk radio show, "Morning in America," that there was a "tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value of work." Representative Barbara Lee of California, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, called Ryan's remarks a "thinly

U.S. Representative Paul Ryan veiled racial attack." "Let's be clear, when Mr. Ryan says 'inner city,' when he says, 'culture,' these are simply code words for what he really means: 'black'," Lee said in a statement. Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice presidential

Missing Malaysian Plane Did Not Crash Editor’s Note: The continued portion of the article was missing from our March 21st issue. Here is the article in its entirety. By Frederick H. Lowe It’s pretty clear that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared March 8 while cruising at 35,000 feet from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, China, did not crash because there isn’t any debris and neither the cockpit voice recorder nor the flight data recorder, which send pinging signals for 30 days to search and rescue teams, following a plane crash, have been activated, a former commercial airline pilot told The NorthStar News & Analysis. The flight data recorder is often referred to as the “black box,” although it is bright orange in color so it can be found easily at a crash site. The flight data recorder or accident data recorder is an electronic device employed to record any instructions sent to any electronic systems on an aircraft. It is a device used to record specific aircraftperformance parameters. The cockpit voice recorder records conversations in the cockpit and

radio communications between the cockpit crew and others, including air traffic control personnel. It, too, is bright orange in color. Both the flight data recorder and cockpit voice reporter are located in the rear of the plane, mostly in a plane’s tail because that section of the plane is most likely to survive a crash. The flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder are double wrapped in corrosion-resistant stainless steel or titanium. They are designed to emit an underwater locator beacon for up to 30 days and can operate in a depth of up to 20,000 feet. The underwater locator beacon assists in helping to find a plane in the event of a crash in water. The device, which is called a “pinger,” is activated when the recorder is immersed in water. Search personnel also have not received a signal from the Emergency Locator Transmitter, which sends out a signal when a plane crashes. The ELT also is located in the tail and the cockpit or another part of the cabin. In the instance of a plane crash, the ELT located in the cockpit is taken

by the crew and turned on and the one in the tail is automatically activated. In 2009 when Air France Flight 447 en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, search and rescue teams were able to locate the plane because of floating debris although the plane crashed in 15,400 feet of water. “The flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder helped pinpoint the crash,” Edward Horne, a retired international 747-400 captain told The NorthStar News. “The signal continues for 30 days and so far there are no reports of transmissions from any of the devices.” Horne was a pilot for Japan Airlines, TWA, United Parcel Service and a retired search and rescue HC130 pilot for United States Air Force. In the Air Force, Horne’s job was to listen for signals from aircraft that crashed into the water. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said during a news conference on Saturday, March 15, that government authorities are investigating what caused Malaysia Airlines Flight

MH370 to deviate from its original flight path. Government authorities are searching a northern corridor, stretching approximately from the border of Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan to northern Thailand, or a southern corridor, stretching approximately from Indonesia to the southern Indian Ocean, Razak said. The last confirmed communication between the plane and a satellite was 8:11 a.m. Malaysian time on Saturday, March 8th. As of Saturday, March 15, 14 countries, 43 ships and 58 aircraft have been involved in the search for the phantom Boeing 777. The investigation is heating up on the ground. Police searched the homes of plane’s pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, 53, and 1st Officer Fariq Ab Hamid,27. Retired Captain Horne said it is not known what type of cargo other than passengers the plane was carrying. “Many of these international flights carry valuable cargo such as gold and diamonds in the cargo hole,” he said.

Engineers as Entrepreneurs

(NewsUSA) - Engineers have given the world many of the great innovations we live by today -Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, the Wright Brothers and Henry Ford, just to mention some household names. But did you know what else each of those great engineers did to realize success? They founded great enterprises to support the potential of their engineering innovations. The great American tradition of engineers-asentrepreneurs continues today. Young, ambitious visionaries are still coming forward, stoked with ideas and the savvy to bring these ideas to life by bringing them to market. Sometimes they've conceived a previously undreamt-of way to improve some aspect of life we all face every day. Sometimes they've dreamed of making life just a little bit easier for people in far-flung or disadvantaged parts of the world. Sometimes they're figuring out how to make modern life greener and cleaner for everyone. Ecovative Design LLC, Green Island, N.Y., is a great example of this tradition in operation today.

Accelerating Black Business Growth

By James Clingman While the 2012 economic Census data have not yet been released, I am certain we will see another increase in the number of Black-owned businesses over the past five years. As a matter of fact, Black business start-ups increased at the highest rate during the previous 5-year census period. It’s great that we are going into business, but

New Mortgage Rules Protect Against Risky Loans

it is shortsighted for us to stop there and celebrate just the number of businesses and overlook the growth of those businesses. Understanding that most small businesses go out of business in a few years, it is vital that we concentrate on growing the businesses we have in addition to merely counting them. A closer look at 2007 census data will indicate

James Clingman that of the nearly 2 million Black-owned businesses, only 106,566 had employees; the total number of employees is 909,552, not all of whom are Black, of course, with an annual payroll of just more than $23 million. Please take a moment and juxtapose those stats against the $1 trillion annual income of Black people in this country, and then analyze the information relative to our population size and the percentage of Black businesses that are sole proprietorships. One-person businesses are not inherently bad; don’t get me wrong. However, the problem with approximately 5 percent of Black-owned businesses having employees indicates a dearth in business growth within our ranks. With that same scenario being repeated from census to census Black economic empowerment via the very engine that moves this nation and the world—business—will never be achieved. That is a prescription for falling even further behind, especially when you consider the realignment of geopolitical power and influence; Black businesses must not only be started, they must be grown to a scale that hire more people and increases their value proposition. We have heard and continue to hear the litany of excuses and reasons for why our businesses are in BUSINESS, See page 12A

Good news for people shopping for a mortgage – and for current homeowners facing foreclosure because they can no longer afford their home loan: New mortgage regulations drafted by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently took effect and they provide a slew of new rights and protections for consumers. One of the cornerstones of the new mortgage rules is that lenders now are required to evaluate whether borrowers can afford to repay a mortgage over the long term – that is, after the initial teaser rate has expired. Otherwise, the loan won't be considered what's now referred to as a "qualified mortgage." Qualified mortgages are designed to help protect consumers from the kinds of risky loans that brought the housing market to its knees back in 2008. But obtaining that designation is also important to lenders because it will help protect

them from lawsuits by borrowers who later prove unable to pay off their loans. Under the new abilityto-pay rules, lenders now must assess – and document – multiple components of the borrower's financial state before offering a mortgage, including the borrower's income, savings and other assets, debt, employment status and credit history, as well as other anticipated mortgage-related costs. Qualified mortgages must meet the following guidelines: • The term can't be longer than 30 years. • Interest-only, negative amortization and balloonpayment loans aren't allowed. • Loans over $100,000 can't have upfront points and fees that exceed 3 percent of the total loan amount. • If the loan has an adjustable interest rate, the lender must ensure that the borrower qualifies at

By Les Christie NEW YORK -- Millions of Americans say they want to buy a home this year, but many won’t be able to, according to a new survey from Zillow. The reasons: Limited supply of homes, soaring prices and strict lending standards. “The dream of homeownership remains very much alive and well,” said Zillow’s chief economist Stan Humphries. “But these aspirations must also contend with the current reality, and in many areas, conditions remain difficult.” In all but one of 20 metro areas Zillow surveyed, 5% or more of residents said they wanted to buy a home over the next 12 months. The desire is particularly strong for renters: 10% of them want to buy. That would translate into 4.2 million first-time buyers, double the number who purchased in 2013. That won’t happen. Inventories of homes for sale are up slightly, but there are still many local shortages. And in some markets, like San Francisco, New York and Seattle, tight sup-

Even though the “vast majority” of respondents to Zillow’s survey said they felt confident they could afford a home in the next year, many will face obstacles that will prevent them from achieving that goal. ply has translated into sky high prices few first-time buyers can afford. Nationwide, home prices are up some 11% last year, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller national home price index. Meanwhile, mortgage rates have also been moving higher. The average rate for a 30-year fixed is about 4.3%, up about 0.8 of a percentage point compared with a year ago. That has made loan payments on a $200,000, 30year mortgage about $90 a

month more expensive. Even when buyers find deals they can afford, they still may not be able to get a loan. Lenders these days require solid credit scores, well-documented incomes and job histories, as well as substantial down payments, of 20% or more, to qualify for the best mortgage deals. Homebuyers with little cash to put down and less than ideal credit scores can often get mortgages backed RENTERS, See page 12A

LOS ANGELES – RISE Financial Pathways (RISE) is looking for qualified applicants to participate in the Match Your Savings $2,500 grant aka IDA (individual development account) program. The IDA is a savings account designed to help families and individuals of modest means on their path to building wealth. A participant’s individual savings and matched funds are used towards buying a home, starting a business or going to school. The program is funded in part by the federal government and RISE. Income guidelines and other requirements must be met. Qualified participants make a one or two year commit-

ment to deposit a minimum of $50.00 per month into an IDA. Through this no-risk savings program, deposits are made directly into a personal savings account set up with RISE partner Union Bank. “This is an amazing opportunity for qualified individuals and families who want to build assets,” said RISE Financial Planning Counselor Lissette Rojo. “The matching grant helps them get closer to their goal of building wealth.” For every one dollar participants save, they will receive $2.50 in matching funds (matching only the first $1,000 saved). At the end of the program year, participants would have saved $3,500 that may be

used to help buy their first home, start a new business or invest in their education.

On top of that, 38% were only "somewhat" confident. In an effort to better prepare today's workers or, at least help you start asking the right questions - I've enlisted the help of one of Cetera Financials Top Financial Advisors. David Elefant is a 25year veteran of the financial industry and he graciously donated his time to give us seven questions everyone should ask themselves to prepare for retirement. 1.

By Gwendolyn Harris Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, it’s hard to enjoy yourself if you’re worried about how your allergies may act up. Outside of your usual routine, it can be challenging to manage food and pollen allergies in new environments, but it’s not impossible. Careful preparation before traveling will not only make things smoother for you, but also help you avoid a life-threatening allergic reaction or inconvenient sinus discomfort that could cost you a trip to the doctor instead. Use these tips to help allergy-proof your next trip. Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, with the number steadily increasing, especially among children. According to Dr. William Calhoun of the University of Texas Medical Branch, it’s extremely important for people with food allergies to be even more cautious while traveling and “watch their dietary intake.” • Read labels and ingredients when shopping and eating away from home. • Bring your own snacks, especially if you’re on a flight serving peanuts and you have a peanut allergy. • Carry an ID card that lists all foods you’re allergic to, as well as your emergency contact infor-

Harry Rosen, 103, is charmer, according to The New York Times. He enjoys dinner out every night, often in fancy Manhattan restaurants, almost always ordering fish and enjoying conversations with other diners. When most of us envision a very long life, it’s that kind of vitality and engagement we all want. Researchers call people like Harry Rosen "Super Agers". They reach "old old" age with the physical and cognitive health of people much younger. Living Better, Not Just Longer The point of being a Super Ager isn’t just to live a long time — it’s to live a long, healthy life. “We have to age, but we can, to some extent, add years to life, and to a far greater extent, add life to years,” says David Katz, M.D., director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center and author of the new

When to Have Knee Replacement Surgery — And What to Expect

By Nancy L. Snyderman, M.D So you're in extreme pain and have been told you need a total knee replacement. You're not alone. The number of knee replacements in the U.S. has almost doubled in the past decade, to 600,000 a year, in large part because boomers like you want to remain active as they get older. "Historically we would reserve knee-replacement surgery for people who were really in the end stages of arthritis — those who literally couldn't walk and had to use a wheelchair," says Carl Deirmengian, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon with the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia. "Today, knee replacement is performed for a younger, more active patient population than previously seen." Surgery in general is not without complications, though, and knee-replacement surgery in particular will require months of rehabilitation. So how do you decide when it's time

mation. You can present this card at a restaurant, or have it on you in case of a medical emergency. • Pack extra medications, including your epinephrine autoinjector. An epinephrine autoinjector, sometimes called by the shortened brand name Epipen, is the only treatment for anaphylaxis, a life-threatening reaction that can include difficulty breathing and closure of the throat. • Translate your allergies if traveling abroad in the language of your destination. Resources are available online to assist you. Environment Allergies From outdoor pollen to indoor dust and pet dander, several things in your environment can trigger an allergic reaction. Dr. Clifford Bassett, director of Allergy & Asthma Care of New York, recommends

to schedule the procedure — or just deal with the pain a little while longer? From my own experience as a surgeon, and from talking with orthopedists like Deirmengian, here is my best advice about when to schedule the surgery and what to expect in the process. When to Schedule Surgery • Traditional therapies are no longer working. These might include antiinflammatory medications, physical therapy, even steroid or hyaluronic acid injections. • You find yourself avoiding even minor activities. • Your sleep is constantly interrupted by pain. What to Expect Before and After Surgery • It's best to have only one knee replaced at a time. Recovery is faster and easier when you have one healthy leg to assist with strength and balance. • Knee replacements are expensive. Hospitals charge almost $50,000 on average, though Medicare

and private insurance generally cover most of that. • Rehab is hard work. You'll start physical therapy within 24 hours. • The pain can be intense, but it usually subsides quickly. After a few weeks, most patients can be weaned off narcotics and rely entirely on over-thecounter pain medications. • Setbacks are common. "My patients sometimes find that around weeks three to four, the knee starts swelling again. This is only a transient phase," Deirmengian says. • Full recovery takes time — at least six weeks, though it will be longer before you can return to athletic activities. Artificial knees don't last forever. But you can expect at least 15 or 20 years of good use before you might need surgery again, says Deirmengian, adding that knee-replacement surgery is "one of the surgeries that patients rate highest in satisfaction because of the improvement they see in their quality of life."

It's often fact vs. myth when it comes to food. (NewsUSA) - Don't you just hate food scolds? Especially when they're as certain they're right as all those tech geniuses were about iPhones never replacing Blackberries. Well, in some cases, people are actually basing their assumptions on either pure myth or the latest diet fad. You know, as in: Gluten is bad for you. And listening to them can actually be risky. "Food myths are dangerous because they can deprive you of the benefits of a healthy diet," says Tara Gidus, MS, R.D., who's the team dietician for basketball's Orlando Magic. Here's a few myths that deserve to be debunked. MYTH: All yogurt is good for you. C'mon, if you smother anything with enough sugary fruits and toppings, it becomes dessert. MYTH: Fresh veggies are more nutritious than frozen or canned. Lived on a farm lately? We didn't think so or you'd know, as the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics's Melissa Joy Dobbins explains, that veggies (and fruits) "are canned as soon as they're picked so they're at peak nutrition." There's also been research showing that canned tomatoes, in particular,

This Home was Built with a 3-D Printer Inventor of Web Calls for Online 'Bill of Rights' By Toby Sterling AMSTERDAM — Hundreds of years after wealthy merchants began building the tall, narrow brick houses that have come to define Amsterdam's skyline, Dutch architects are updating the process for the 21st century: fabricating pieces of a canal house out of plastic with a giant 3-D printer and slotting them together like oversized Lego blocks. Hedwig Heinsman of architect bureau Dus says the goal of the demonstration project launched this month is not so much to print a functioning house — in fact, parts of the house will likely be built and re-built several times over the course of three years as 3-D printing technology develops. Rather, it is to discover and share the potential uses of 3-D printing in construction by creating new materials, trying out designs and testing building techniques to see what works. "There's only one way to find out," she says. "By doing it." She envisions a future in which personalized architecture may be customcrafted on the spot, or

perhaps selected from an online store for architectural designs, downloaded and tweaked. At the core of the project is a 6-meter (20-foot) -tall printer dubbed the Kamermaker, or "roombuilder." It's a scaled-up version of the open-source home 3-D printer made by Ultimaker, popular with hobbyists It takes the Kamermaker about a week to print each massive, unique, honeycomb-structured block, layer by layer. The first block, which forms one corner of the house and part of a stairway, weighed around 180 kilograms (400 lbs).

The blocks will later be filled with a foam material, still under development, that will harden like concrete to add additional weight and bind the blocks together. Dus expects to add more printers and change designs along the way, with help from Dutch construction company Heijmans, German chemicals manufacturer Henkel, and anybody else who wants to participate and can make useful contributions. The construction site in northern Amsterdam is also an exhibition, open to the public for 2.50 euros ($3.00).

By Alexis Kleinman Finally, there’s a new social media app that doesn’t try to make you talk more with your friends. In fact, it helps you do the exact opposite: Hide from them. This “incognito mode for real life” is called Cloak, and by pulling in

check-in data from those you’re connected with on Instagram and FourSquare, it plots each of your friends’ locations on one pretty little map. That’s information any good misanthrope would want, since it would let him or her avoid running into friends.

In reality, you have to be on at least one social network to use the app, so you can’t be that much of an outcast. In fact, if you’re not a loner, but just lonely, you can use the app to “casually” “run into” “friends.” Creepy. If you tap on the dot, you see exactly where the person is and when he or she checked in. This all makes sense when it comes to FourSquare, but people often post on Instagram hours after taking a photo. For example, Cloak told me that my friend above was at a bar at 10 a.m. When I looked more closely, however, I saw that she had actually been there the night before, but just posted a photo on Instagram with the tag “#latergram.” You can “flag particularly hazardous people to get alerted,” so Cloak tells you when a particular person is anywhere from a block to two miles away. You can also receive an alert when anyone gets within a certain distance. Creepy, but if your friends are broadcasting their locations, they clearly want people to know where they are. The app is free and was created by Brian Moore and Chris Baker. Baker also created the popular Chrome extension Unbaby.me (later rebranded as Rather), an extension that tries to scrub baby pictures (or anything else that irritates you) from your Facebook and Twitter feeds. “Things like Twitter and Facebook are packed elevators where we’re all crammed in together … I think anti-social stuff is on the rise,” Baker told The Wall Street Journal. “You’ll be seeing more and more of these types of projects.” As usual, “Arrested Development” called it.

An App That Helps You Avoid Friends

LONDON — The British inventor of the World Wide Web wants a digital bill of rights to protect Internet users from surveillance. Speaking on the 25th anniversary of his creation, Tim Berners-Lee says he hopes to spark a global conversation about the need to defend principles that have made the Web successful. He told the Guardian newspaper that the Web was under increasing attack by governments and corporate interests. He said the system needed an online Magna Carta, or foundation of rules, to protect its openness and neutrality. Berners-Lee said in a statement he believes the Web should be "accessible to all, from any device, and

U.S. Government Letting Go of Key Internet Oversight Role

The U.S. government announced Friday that it is relinquishing it's hold on a key Internet oversight role. The Wall Street Journal reported that the Commerce Department announced the decision to transition out of managing domain names and addresses for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). The move is planned for September 2015, when the current contract runs out, the Journal added. According to the Journal, the move is considered a response to international backlash that the U.S. faced as a result of the National Security Agency spying scandal. The Washington Post adds that the move is likely to please those crit-

ics, but business leaders could be concerned. Back in January, ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé warned HuffPost Live that the "biggest threat" to innovation on the Internet is a fragmented web. "If we cannot find a way to govern the Internet in an equal footing, in an

open transparent way this year, we might descend into a fragmented version of the Internet," Chehadé said. "The moment we fragment the Internet it is possible there will be tariffs between borders, there will be rules... it will not be the internet as we know it."

By Adam Goldberg There may be hope for Flappy Bird fans yet! Dong Nguyen, the Vietnamese creator of the insanely popular smartphone game, told Rolling Stone in a March 11th interview that he is "considering" bringing the game back after taking it down last month. On February 8th, Nguyen sent the following tweet, breaking the hearts of countless Flappy Bird fans: After the game was removed from Apple's App Store, Nguyen told Forbes that he took it down because it had become "an addictive product." Rolling Stone gives readers a glimpse of Nguyen's past: Growing up in Van Phuc, a village outside Hanoi famous for silk-making, Nguyen (pronounced nwin) never imagined being a world-famous game designer. Though his father owned a hardware store and his mother worked for the government, his family couldn't afford Game Boys for him or his younger brother. But eventually, they were able to purchase a Nintendo, which, like most electronics in Vietnam, was available only

in cloned form. Marveling at the power of controlling a character onscreen, Nguyen spent his free time obsessively playing Super Mario Bros. The article explains that before making an estimated $50,000 a day from Flappy Bird, Nguyen studied computer science and eventually went to work for a company that made cellphone games. He modeled the nowiconic smartphone app on the classic game of paddleball, along with some Nintendo-esque visuals. After Flappy Bird sat unnoticed

on the App Store and then eventually went viral, Nguyen became concerned about the game's addictive quality, and its success began to weigh down on him. The rest, as they say, is history. Nguyen pulled the game, and now the App Store is flooded with Flappy Bird clones. If Flappy Bird returns, Nguyen tells Rolling Stone that it would come with a cautionary message along the lines of "please take a break." Unfortunately, lots of us probably won't heed his warning.

Commentary Beyond the Rhetoric:

Still Fighting for Right to Vote

President Obama’s War Against Minority College Student

Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. This week, I wanted to focus my column once more on the issue of voting. After 246 years of slavery, Americans fought a brutal Civil War — the bloodiest in our history — to end slavery and preserve the union. Three amendments were added to the Constitution: the 13th abolished slavery; the 14th guaranteed equal protection under the laws, and the 15th outlawed discrimination in voting on the basis of race or prior servitude. But although they surrendered on the battlefield, the Confederates did not give up. They waged a fierce rear-guard battle over state sovereignty, also known as “states’ rights.” They sabotaged the post-war reconstruction, unleashing a wave of terror across the South. Several states began to enforce segregation against the newly freed slaves. And in the shameful decision of Plessey v. Ferguson in 1896, the Supreme Court gave approval to state Jim Crow laws, endorsing the oxymoron of “separate but equal.” It took another half century of struggle to reestablish the reach of the civil rights amendments. In 1965, the Voting Rights Act was passed to enforce the 15th Amendment’s guaran-

tee against discrimination in voting. States, counties and municipalities in the South continued to invent new obstacles to voting, but for areas with a history of discrimination — largely Southern states — the Voting Rights Act required preclearance of any changes in voting laws. This enabled the Justice Department to prevent significant voter suppression. But having lost the military battle in 1865 and the legal battle in 1965, the Confederates did not give up. They continued to argue for states’ rights. And since the 15th Amendment only outlawed denying a citizen his right to vote based on race or color, voting procedures remained under the control of states and localities. In 2013, with a conservative majority in control of the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court revived states-rights arguments in Shelby v. Holder, acting shamefully to weaken federal authority, gutting much of the vital preclearance portions of the Voting Rights Act. Once more as the federal authority was weakened, the Confederates churned out new obstacles to voting — strict photo ID requirements, elimination

of same-day voter registration, reducing early voting periods, eliminating early registration for young people, outlawing use of student IDs and more. Within two hours of the Shelby decision, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot — now running for governor — announced that the Texas’voter identification law, previously rejected by the U.S. Justice Department and a federal court (which said it was the most discriminatory measure of its kind in the country), would immediately be implemented. North Carolina followed shortly. Now some 34 states have erected new obstacles to voting. The absence of a constitutional guarantee to the right to vote remains the source of continuing injustice. Professor Obama wasn’t just teaching history; he was introducing his students to an ongoing human rights struggle. If the fundamental individual right to vote had been constitutionally guaranteed in 2000, Al Gore would have been elected VOTE, See page 12A

Last week, the Obama Administration declared war on one million underserved students pursuing higher education throughout the United States. While the President and First Lady launch their campaign to make it easier for lowincome minority students to access college, the Department of Education has launched an unprecedented assault on this same community through a new proposal that will cut thousands of college programs that disproportionately serve poor communities, single working mothers, veterans and other at-risk populations. At a time when American employers desperately need an educated, skilled workforce to sustain economic recovery, a confused and conflicted White House is hurting the underserved communities it claims to support. On March 14, the Department of Education published its new proposed “Gainful Employment” rule. The rule is a rehashed patchwork of regulations concocted several years ago in an attempt to prevent abuse of the federal financial aid system. Rejected through legislative process and shot down in federal court only a few years ago, the Administration has nonetheless resur-

peers seeking high paying jobs. The same is true for those pursuing their passions in culinary training, design, animation and other careers in the arts. This will hurt employers like hospital systems, hotels, restaurants and food service companies who heavily recruit qualified talent from programs threatened by the rule. Perhaps the biggest problem with the ill-conceived Gainful Employment rule is the fact that it discriminates against programs that are sought primarily by low income minorities and other nontraditional students. From poor working families, to single mothers to veterans and other special needs communities, there are millions of Americans who don’t fit the mold or plainly weren’t accepted for a typical college experience. In order to gain the skills, training and credentials needed to secure and maintain a job, many of these individuals enroll in proprietary vocational programs. President Obama’s Gainful Employment rule WAR, See page 12A

Lee A. Daniels

Walter L. Fields, Jr. Even the left-leaning cable TV outpost MSNBC got in on the fun and gave Keyes a show to promote his idiocy on the airwaves. Then there was Florida congressman and Tea Party darling Allan West who was so far on the extreme right that he became a caricature of a Black conservative caricature. And who can forget Herman Cain, the former corporate pizza pusher, a political simpleton whose ignorance convinced the former CEO that he could run for the presidency and made thinking Republicans blush. The dark side of the far-right is truly an intellectual wasteland. What makes Carson stand out is his professional pedigree. He was seen as the epitome of Black success; a true rags-to-riches story, having overcome challenges in his youth to rise to a place of prominence through hard work, determination and sheer brilliance. He might not have earned a place on the wall in Black households beside John, Martin and Jesus (and soon Obama), but his name was certainly held in great esteem by Black parents who wanted to provide their children with a role model to emulate. At least until Carson voices his political beliefs. The famed surgeon has

rected the policy and repackaged it in an 841-page proposal that will decimate college programs and career-focused vocational training currently serving one million students. The proposed regulation, which applies primarily to proprietary (for-profit) colleges and universities, would make academic programs ineligible for federal Title IV financial aid if they fail to meet arbitrary formulas primarily related to student debt and earnings a few years out after graduation. Put more simply, students who don’t command high enough starting salaries relative to their student loans will find their programs eliminated without any solution for continuing their educational career. If the rule is enacted as proposed, thousands of vocational training and educational programs will disappear, creating an $8 billion shortage in the higher education market and many aspiring students left out in the cold. Students pursuing careers in public service, which often pay lower starting salaries, like teachers, social workers, nurses and other allied health careers will be barred from receiving the same federal aid as their

The GOP’s “Culture of Poverty” Gambit

Ben Carson’s Political Malpractice By any measure Ben Carson is at the top of his field. The renowned surgeon has established a clear and irrefutable legacy in medicine. His life-altering surgical procedures are the stuff of legend, and the fact that he is an African-American male in a profession where Blacks comprise just 4 percent of practitioners is all the more impressive. I first became aware of Carson during my years in Baltimore as he made news at the Mecca of medical research, Johns Hopkins Hospital in the port city. Now, Carson is making news not for his medical exploits but for his foray into the world of partisan politics. The surgeon has declared himself an unabashed conservative and has become the latest Black darling of the political right. Every so often we hear a Black voice being elevated by the far-right in an attempt to neutralize racial claims in political discourse while actually inflaming the passions of the overwhelming majority of Blacks who see through the charade. We’ve seen the likes of Alan Keyes emerge, as he ran for every office with the exception of dog catcher and seemed to appear everywhere when race was at the center of the debate.

become a stalker, attacking the Affordable Health Care Act every chance he gets to stand behind a podium or make a television appearance. Carson uses his credibility in the medical profession to assault Obamacare and by effect, disparage the nation’s first AfricanAmerican president. His vitriol has earned him the admiration of the GOP’s right flank and given him ‘most favored Black son’ status with the conservative propagandist tool, the Fox News Network. Carson gives conservatives a convenient race-shield, a Black person who can carry their water and deliver messages that are racially codified but cannot be charged with being a racist due to his race. And unlike the silent assassin on the United States Supreme Court, Ben Carson usually doesn’t look like a buffoon when he engages in buffoonery. It’s not just Carson’s critique of health care reform that is earning him rave reviews from the political right. At the Conservative Political Action CARSON, See page 12A

The 2014 mid-term elections are just eight months away – and the Republicans are worried about Black voters again. They have good reason to be – that is, to worry about a repeat of 2012. Then, despite the best efforts of GOP-dominated state legislatures to block Blacks’ access to the polls, black voters’ turnout rate surpassed that of Whites for the first time ever. That achievement, along with the substantial turnout of both Hispanic-American and Asian-American voters, helped underwrite President Obama’s decisive re-election victory. Equally important, Obama’s name on the ballot was only partially responsible for Blacks’ march to the polls, because the Black vote had been rising markedly since 1996. So, despite the predictions of some politicos and pundits that the Democrats will lose the Senate in November, the vote of voters of color may once again prove the president’s party’s ace in the hole. That’s part of the political lens through which to consider the recent comments by Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican chairman of the House of Representative’s budget committee, and Bill

O’Reilly, the Fox News talk show host, painting black Americans as “problem people.” Their purpose was to signal the GOP and conservative echo chamber that it’s time to start whistling “Dixie” anew— but this time replacing the words of longing for the “old times they are not forgotten” with a lament about blacks’ supposed culture of poverty. O’Reilly, responding to President Obama’s late February announcement of a Black Male Initiative to help young males of color prepare for a productive adulthood, commanded Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to “ attack the fundamental disease if you want to cure it … get people like Jay Z, Kanye West, all these gangsta rappers to knock it off.” Daily Beast.com columnist Jamelle Bouie drily noted O’Reilly’s ignorance, pointing out that “Jay-Z is a multimedia mogul with a gift for business and the credibility of the art world. Kanye West is a hyper-talented producer and visual artist who has refined and redefined the sound of pop music several times over. And in their relentless drive for accomplishment and success, they embody the American dream. “To Bill O’Reilly,

however,” he continued, “they’re just ‘gangster rappers’ who need to be put in their place.” Ryan, who’s tried mightily to erase the public’s memory of his spectacular failure on the 2012 GOP presidential ticket by talking about the country’s crisis of poverty, claimed it was largely due to a “tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and culture of work. So, there’s a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.” California Democrat Rep. Barbara Lee quickly and bluntly got ahead of the resulting firestorm, characterizing Ryan’s remarks as a “thinly veiled racial attack … [that] cannot be tolerated. Let’s be clear,” she said, “when Mr. Ryan says ‘inner city,’ when he says, ‘culture,’ these are simply code words for what he really means: ‘black.’” Lee added that Ryan should “produce some legitimate proposals on how to tackle poverty and racial GOP, See page 12A

Students reporting less than one hour of homework a night increased from 36 percent to 44 percent during the same period. Meanwhile, the number of 17-year-olds reporting no homework grew from 22 percent in 1984 to 27 percent in 2012.

• Send borrowers clear monthly statements that show how payments are being credited, including a breakdown of payments by principal, interest, fees and escrow. • Fix mistakes and respond to borrower inquiries promptly. • Credit payments on the date received. • Provide early notice to borrowers with adjustablerate mortgages when their rate is about to change. • Contact most borrowers by the time they are 36 days late with their payment. • Inform borrowers who fall behind on mortgage payments of all available alternatives to foreclosure (e.g., payment deferment or loan modification). With limited exceptions, mortgage servicers now cannot: initiate foreclosures until borrowers are more than 120 days delinquent (allowing time to apply for a loan modification or other alternative); start foreclosure proceedings while also working with a homeowner who has already submitted a complete application for help; or hold a foreclosure sale until all other alternatives have been considered. For more details on the new mortgage rules, visit www.consumerfinance.gov/ mortgage. Bottom line: You should never enter into a mortgage (or other loan) you can’t understand or afford. But it’s nice to know that stronger regulations are now in place to help prevent another housing meltdown. RENTERS From page 8A by the Federal Housing Administration. But the agency has been hiking its fees and changing the terms on its loans, which has made them less attractive. Renters in Miami, Atlanta and Las Vegas expressed the most desire to become homeowners, according to Zillow’s index. Prices in the South Florida metro area are still about 40% off their highs and the median price of homes sold lately is well under $180,000, much more affordable than other major cities. Meanwhile, renters in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Minneapolis were least aspirational about buying a home in the next year. BUSINESS From page 8A the shape they are in and, believe me, I know most of or all of them. I understand the history connected to our businesses and how they were excluded from the general marketplace and how they have been discriminated against by lenders and equity funds. I know we had to take nontraditional steps to establish our businesses, and we did pretty well at it, in spite of the treatment we received and the government actions that inhibited us. So let’s spend a little less time complaining and more time building our businesses with tried and true strategies and positive traits of great entrepreneurs—Black and any other color; because the main color in business is green.

RETIREMENT From page 9A clients are creating a budget for retirement, it’s fairly common to forget to account (pun intended) for taxes. Pensions and investment income (such as annuities) will all be taxed so prepare your budget accordingly. 5. “Will you maintain your home?” As most home owners are aware, mortgage or not, maintenance and upkeep of a residence can get expense. So for future retirees, deciding how and where you’ll

like to live is an essential consideration. 6. “Do you have assets that can be repositioned?” As mentioned earlier, the timeline for when you plan to retire will have a significant impact on the type of investment vehicles that makes the most sense. 7. “Do you want to take one big trip per year, or five?” Maybe you want to spend your retirement traveling, opening a small business, or just sitting on the couch and watch TV. Either way, deciding how you want to spend your retirement will have an impact on how you should plan to save. 100 From page 9A been shown to increase your likelihood of being a Super Ager? “Eating well, being active, not smoking, getting enough sleep, dissipating stress, and sharing love,” says Dr. Katz. “After that, everything else is vanishingly less important. I call these: feet, forks, fingers, sleep, stress, and love.” One interesting point: Being an “ideal weight” isn’t on Dr. Katz’s list. It’s not that he thinks weight isn’t important, but that it’s primarily a function of exercise and good diet — factors we can control. MYTHS From page 9A wheat, barley and rye -- people have somehow gotten it into their heads that the 99 percent of Americans who don’t have celiac disease should also avoid it. Problem is, such wholegrain foods happen to be rich in B vitamins, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and fiber, and may even help lower the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer. That explains why no less than Peter H.R. Green, the director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, told WebMD that going gluten-free “isn’t something that anyone should do casually.” MYTH: Eggs are bad for your heart. According to the Harvard Medical School, the only large study that addressed the issue found “no connection between the two.” However, egg yolks do contain a lot of cholesterol, calories and fat. So for a lean and healthier option, discard the yolk or switch to pourable egg whites-only Egg Beaters (www.eggbeaters.com). VOTE From page 11A president over George W. Bush because all the individual votes of Floridians would have had to be counted, as felons in Florida were not allowed to cast their votes. The individual right of Florida’s citizens would have taken precedence over Florida’s state laws. If there were a constitutionally guaranteed right to vote, we would not have different laws for 50 different states and 13,000 election jurisdictions. We’d have a federal law that would govern voting rights for all. Congressmen Mark Pocan, D-Wis., and Keith Ellison, D-Minn., have introduced House Joint Resolution 44 to amend the Constitution to guarantee the right to vote. It would provide every American with a fundamental individual right to vote and give Congress the clear authority to create a unified national voting system with minimum standards. The right to vote is not a partisan question. It should not be left to changing legislatures or biased Supreme Court majorities. It should be clearly guaranteed in the Constitution. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. is founder and president of RainbowPUSH. WAR From page 11A penalizes these programs almost exclusively while applying completely different standards for private nonprofit schools with the exact same curriculum. At the same time, the schools who serve more affluent populations of

traditional suburban teenagers are protected from the President’s biased standards. This is a policy of discrimination. Not only is the Department of Education proposing an unprecedented program that discriminates against certain types of schools, the Obama Administration has not produced any plan to compensate for the six million students who will be displaced and dejected before the decade is over. No regulation of this type and this complexity has ever been enacted in higher education. The collateral damage of this proposed rule is great and the risk to these communities and to our fragile economy is very real. Another reality is the plight of ex-felons. Finding full time employment is a very difficult thing to accomplish when you have a record. The only professional license an ex-offender can earn is that of a barber or beauty license. With this a person can find work or even become an entrepreneur by way of owning his/her own establishment. It can be a lifetime of progress. But no, this rule will end any chance of that happening anymore. As the United States continues its slow economic recovery, it’s critical that the public and private sectors collaborate closely to provide all individuals with the resources they need to get the education and training required to participate in our modern workforce. As we have seen time and again, aggressive, ambitious policies designed to improve social programs for the underserved should be applied fairly and pursued carefully after thorough due diligence. The Obama Administration’s current rule will immediately and unfairly targets one million underserved, atrisk college students throughout the nation, and ultimately discriminates against the communities it proposes to serve. This will hurt employers, vulnerable students and our economy. If the president truly seeks to protect and expand low income access to college while addressing the issue of student debt, he needs to start by rethinking his misguided Gainful Employment crusade. Mr. Alford is the cofounder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce. Website: www. nationalbcc.org Email: halford@nationalbcc.org CARSON From page 11A Conference (CPAC), he gave the salivating crowd something to really devour. He played upon the pseudo-religiosity of the CPAC audience when he declared, “I hate political correctness. I will continue to defy the p.c. police when they try and shut me up. I still believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.” That’s good stuff for that crowd. By attacking the president and gay marriage Carson solidified his conservative credentials. The mistake Carson and his fans make, as has others before him, is confusing his fame in his chosen field with competency in public policy. And they fool themselves into believing that most Blacks and thinking other folks don’t know the difference. The reason why the likes of Ben Carson, Allan West, Clarence Thomas and Alan Keyes never gain traction among Black voters and mainstream white voters, Republican of Democrat, is that their too easy to deconstruct. There is no intellectual depth, no substance when they share their thoughts on matters of policy. We know the difference between real and pretend because we have experience with Black Republicans who gained our respect with their thoughtful analysis. Whether it was E. Frederic Morrow in the Eisenhower White House, former Massachusetts Senator Ed Brooke, Arthur Fletcher or William Coleman, Jr., the first Black Secretary of Transportation, we have witnessed Black

Republicans who put the interest of their community before the extreme views of the fringe of their party. And history informs us that Blacks like Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Hiram Revels and Sojourner Truth only allied with the Republican Party because it stood on the side of Black liberation and has nothing to do with the present day iteration of the GOP. What we see today in the Republican Party is nothing short of minstrelsy, Black faces in Black face. Walter L. Fields, Jr. is executive editor of NorthStarNews.com GOP From page 11A discrimination in America. His uninformed policy proposals continue to increase poverty, not solve it.” Ryan at first insisted such criticism was unwarranted. Then, when the heat continued to build, claimed he’d been “inarticulate” in expressing his thoughts. In fact, the “lazy, shiftless” racial vein both Ryan and O’Reilly were mining dramatically illustrates that for a segment of white Americans bigotry remains impervious to logic or fact. Ryan, who was once believed to be knowledgeable about America’s economic history, somehow forgot that in 1999, at the end of the nearly decadelong period of prosperity, the black unemployment rate (now at 12 percent), fell to an historic low of 7.6 percent. The reason: the demand for workers in the economy’s low-wage sector was so great, those jobs opened up, finally, to poor black men. A study of more than 300 metropolitan areas by the National Bureau of Economic Research, the think tank that serves as the official arbiter of whether the economy is in a recession, found that black males, ages 16 to 24, with a high school education or less, were working in greater numbers and earning bigger paychecks than ever before. Those job-takers were pushed not by the pronouncements of civic or political leaders, black or white, but by their own desire for honest work. (The study also noted crime had declined most sharply in those areas where the declines in joblessness had also been greatest.) Those men, the most maligned group in America society then and today, understood what the poor have always understood. They don’t need any condescending lectures about the value and dignity of work. They just need the opportunity to work. Lee A. Daniels is a columnist for the National Newspaper Publishers Association. His most recent book is Last Chance: The Political Threat to Black America.

Jamie Foxx & Kevin Hart Set to Gorillaz Alums Reunite at SXSW Unite for New Comedy Flick

It may be safe to label Kevin Hart the hardest working man in Hollywood, as the comedian continues to expand his portfolio. According to Variety, the 34-year-old Philadelphia native and actor Jamie Foxx are currently in talks to star in Screen Gem’s developing film, “Black Phantom.” The movie is reportedly set to revolve around a double-crossed hitman “who enlists the help of the Black Phantom, the same African-American hitman who had been sent to kill him.” The site also revealed that the film could see the re-pairing of Hart and producer Will Packer, who has been at the helm of a string of the comedian’s successful projects, including “Ride Along,” and “Think Like A Man.” During an interview with the Huffington Post last summer, Packer revealed one of the common traits he shares with the

Jennifer Hudson Parts Ways with Weight Watchers

Jennifer Hudson will no longer be spokesperson for Weight Watchers, the weight loss plan which helped her lose 80 pounds in four years, People reports. "I have chosen to step away from my role as ambassador and I am excited for the year to come, with many new projects and lots of new music," Hudson told People, adding: "My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing. I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me." In 2010, Hudson explained her motivation for losing weight were the pounds she packed while pregnant. "I didn't realize it was me. I was like, 'Who? ... Oh, my God, this is me.' And now when I look back, wow, look at the difference from then to now," she said. At the time, she had just signed on to be spokeswoman for the brand, since using it helped her shed the baby

By Madeline Boardman After multiple platinum-selling albums, dozens of chart-topping singles, and four Grammy awards, Lil Wayne's solo rap career may be finally coming to an end. In a new interview with MTV News about his upcoming album "Tha Carter V," Weezy announced that the project will likely be his last. "I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes and it's definitely the final Carter album," he told the outlet. "It's the final Carter album. It's stopping at five." Lil Wayne released his first Carter album, "Tha Carter" in 2004. The album performed strongly, going gold and hitting the top-

were certified multi-platinum. The album sales are evidently not what Weezy is looking for, as he has voiced his desire for retirement in the past. "Oh, I know I'll be able to retire at 35 because I am so ready to retire now," the 31-yearold rapper told Katie Couric in an interview in September. With "Tha Carter V" currently scheduled to hit stores on May 5, Wayne seems to be on track for his retirement plans. If Lil Wayne were to be persuaded to make another album, however, it would take more than "A Milli" to get him on board. As he told MTV, "$25 to $35 million would get me to do another solo album after this."

By Chris Talbott AUSTIN, Texas — For a guy who got his start in the '90s British rock 'n' roll scene, Damon Albarn sure knows how to throw a hiphop party. Albarn invited De La Soul and Del The Funky Homosapien to join him during his performance at South By Southwest, pulling off one of the bigger surprises so far at the annual music conference and festival. De La Soul joined Albarn for their Gorillaz collaboration "Feed Good Inc.," before Del came on stage to perform initial Gorillaz single "Clint Eastwood" for the first time since its release 13 years ago. "What can I say about them? They're very dear friends of mine," Albarn said of De La Soul before the performance. "But it's Del The Funky Homosapien I'm most excited about. It is literally the first time that not only have I met him, but he's going to sing 'Clint Eastwood.' It's actually quite a momentous moment." And not just for Albarn, who also debuted songs from his new solo album "Everyday Robots," out April 29. Those who bothered to stick around after De La Soul's high-spirited appearance got a double

Snoop Dogg took the stage at the Fader Fort, where the magazine is celebrating its 15th anniversary by inviting artists to perform who have appeared on its cover, contributing a surprise verse as well. Albarn said Snoop's appearance was meant to add "a little cayenne" to the set. Albarn's music has increasingly featured hiphop and bass-inflected electronic music, and he says he finds inspiration working with diverse artists from different musical worlds. "I'm more of a fan of making it than listening to it," Albarn said of hip-hop. "I've got my favorites, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, and I suppose that first wave really. Mind you, I love Kendrick Lamar. That sort of excited

me again. Of course I love hip-hop but I'm not hip hop. It's another aspect of the spectrum that I kind of can hear the spirit of music in." Dave Jolicoeur of De La Soul said Albarn's open-mindedness has led to a great friendship. "He's a cool dude who just likes to have fun and create music," Jolicoeur said of the Blur frontman. "For us, that's been our MO ever since Day 1, goofing around, having a good time. There's no real rules at all, but hopefully we get something out of this. That's been the person that I've known, a guy who just likes to create. There are no embarrassing moments where you say, 'You can't do that, you can't say that.' Just do what you're doing, and be free."

Tyler Perry By Clifford Coonan Lionsgate and Tyler Perry's 34th Street Films have bought an action-comedy pitch from screenwriters Jim and Brian Kehoe for mid-six figures, sources close to the deal said. To give the film extra traction internationally, they are partnering with China-based DMG Entertainment, which coproduced Iron Man 3 and Looper -- both big hits in China in recent years. The pitch, titled Top of the Food Chain, is described as a cross between City Slickers and The Grey. Tyler Perry, Ozzie Areu, and Matt Moore will produce the project, along with Chris Cowles. DMG Entertainment's Dan Mintz and Chris Fenton will executive produce. The sale marks another coup for the Kehoe brothers after their 2012 Black List script, Cherries, moves into production this spring with Good Universe’s Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg producing alongside DMG Entertainment. The Kehoes entered the comedy scene in 2003 when they wrote and directed the indie film Overachievers, which starred Gary Busey. They have also written and directed

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that Judge Matthew Guasco sentenced Geoffrey Charles Sjostrom, of Simi Valley, to ten years and four months in state prison. In December 2013, a jury convicted Sjostrom of 20 felony counts of grand theft, money laundering, forgery, perjury, and excessive taking enhancements. This case was investigated by the Simi Valley Police Department. Sjostrom was trustee of a trust made by Frank Copland, his longtime family friend who died of cancer in 2005 at the age of 81. Over 18 months, Sjostrom embezzled $265,000 from trust bank accounts and concealed his thefts from Copland's beneficiaries. When his actions as trustee were questioned in 2006, Sjostrom initially refused to make an accounting of trust assets. Sjostrom later filed sworn pleadings in which he claimed Copland had exhausted his bank accounts before he died. After the beneficiaries discovered the concealed bank accounts in 2008, Sjostrom claimed he took money from those accounts as repayment for a large loan he made to Copland. Sjostrom produced a forged promissory note ostensibly signed by Copland to support his claim. In addition to the prison sentence, Sjostrom was ordered to pay $732,283 in victim restitution to the trust beneficiaries, and a fine of $50,000.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On March 21, officers and EMS were dispatched to the 400 block of North Hayes Avenue regarding a subject not breathing. When officers and EMS arrived they located the male subject. Despite emergency responders’ efforts to save the subject, he was pronounced deceased at the scene. The subject was a 40 year old Oxnard resident. His name is being withheld until his family is notified. Investigators didn’t observe any signs of trauma on the victim and at this time don’t know the cause of death. Investigators are attempting to locate witnesses and establish what occurred.

In What Areas Do You Believe That Women Are Better Suited Than Men Are?

“I think women can do the same as men in many arenas. However, we differ in having certain attributes. Women tend to have more patience and nurturing qualities that allows them to be more qualified in fields such as education & administration. Women have the ability to endure stressful situations better than most men can.”

“Women, in my opinion, have always been “hardwired” to be leaders, due to the fact that they can analyze every single angle of a situation, and see through all of the “malarkey”, and get right down to the source of any issue.”

“Women are capable of anything that they put their minds to. As far as being better suited, I believe that we as a society need to get away from the “us versus them” mentality and determine suitability based on ones individual merits.”

“I believe that women are better suited than men in most areas. Most certainly, they are the foundation and the backbone of the family. They are also excellent planners. Some women are also amazing managers.”

“Honestly, in my experience, women tend to be more organized than men, or me in particular! So more events and activities are completed by women, and quicker than men could do them.”

“First off, I think women are equal to men and can do anything a man can do. However, we are definitely better suited than men when it comes to using our intuition. I believe this is a gift God has given us to help lead and guide our families, and discern what is truth, and what is false.”

BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this

property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1351670. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. In compliance with California Civil Code 2923.5(c), the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent declares: that it has contacted the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure; or that it has made efforts to contact the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure by one or more of the following methods: by telephone, by United States mail; either 1st class or certified; by overnight delivery; by personal delivery; by e-mail; by face to face meeting or the borrower has surrendered the property to the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent and that the compliance with Civil Code Section 2923.5 was made at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of this Notice of Sale.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1472 ORCHARD DRIVE , OJAI AREA, CA 93023 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining unpaid balance of the obligations secured by and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust (together with any modifications thereto). NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting. com, using the file number assigned to this case 11-01079-5. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $471,478.07 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a

check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable.

A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: 4/24/14 at Time: 9:00 A.M. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned

off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800-542-2550 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site www. rtrustee.com, using the file number assigned to this case. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. In compliance with California Civil Code 2923.5(c), the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent declares: that it has contacted the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure; or that it has made efforts to contact the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure by one or more of the following methods: by telephone, by United States mail; either 1st class or certified; by overnight delivery; by personal delivery; by e-mail; by face to face meeting or the borrower has surrendered the property to the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent and that the compliance with Civil Code Section 2923.5 was made at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of this Notice of Sale.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

From page 3A wage would not cost the government anything — as the CBO acknowledged, it might even save money in the short term as people with increased incomes need fewer government benefits and pay more in taxes. The increase also would help spur the economy. Recent research from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago found that raising the minimum wage to $10 could increase U.S. gross domestic product by up to 0.3 percentage points in the short term. Some resist a minimum wage increase because of fears it would lead to job losses, but af-

ter extensive research the latest consensus in the field is that this is not the case. This is why more than 600 economists, including seven Nobel Laureates, have endorsed the increase to $10.10, saying in a joint letter to President Obama and congressional leaders: “In recent years there have been important developments in the academic literature on the effect of increases in the minimum wage on employment, with the weight of the evidence now showing that increases in the minimum wage have had little or no negative effects on the employment of minimum-wage workers, even during times of

weaknesses in the labor market.” And even if you don’t believe the newest research is the most valid, and look instead at all the research combined, as the Congressional Budget Office conservatively did in its February 18th report, CBO’s best estimate was that this change would reduce employment by 0.3 percent. Should we really deny a certain income boost to 24.5 million workers to spare a much smaller number uncertain job loss? Of course not. If Congress is worried about uncertain job losses from a minimum wage increase, they could offset them through complementary policies like changes to the Earned Income Tax Credit, which boosts employment among low- and mid-income earners, or private or public sector jobs programs. Increasing the minimum wage would give an immediate pay raise to millions of workers in America who are still waiting for the country’s economic recovery to reach them. No one in rich America should be working full time and be forced to live in poverty. That’s why nearly threequarters of Americans support raising the minimum wage, including a majority of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. There is no reason for Congress to continue to deny hard-working Americans, many of them parents, a long overdue and needed pay raise. It’s long past time to begin to make work pay again.

OBAMA, From page 1A University upset 3rd ranked Duke University 78-71 in the second round. Online viewers also voted on in a video GIF contest titled “The 16 Sweetest Reasons to Get Covered.” A video titled, “Women can’t be charged more than men” featuring First Lady Michelle Obama and NBA superstar Lebron James video bombing Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade, Ray Allen and Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra won the People’s Choice Award in the short video contest inspired by the Affordable Care Act. When serious and casual college basketball fans tune in to ESPN, ABC, TNT and NBATV to catch up on March Madness action, they’ll see NBA superstar Lebron James in a 30-second television ad encouraging people, especially young, healthy people to get covered. NBA legend Magic Johnson and former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, each who have battled highly-publicized health problems, appeared in similar ads. The ads, largely paid for by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services could go a long way in sparking conversations about the need for health insurance coverage in the Black community. According to a study by the Yale University Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity Black children and teens are exposed to at least 80 percent more ads than their White peers. Commercials often feature more positive portrayals of Black men when compared to prime time television. According to a new report

by the Department of Health and Human Services, almost 2 million Americans suffered sports-related injuries. including ankle and knee sprains that landed them in the emergency room, one of the most expensive places to get medical treatment. “Some sports-related injuries, such as sprained ankles, may be relatively minor, while others, such as head or neck injuries, can be quite serious,” stated the HHS report. The report sports-related injuries continued: “The most common of these were ankle or knee sprains and leg fractures. Estimated rates of sports-related injuries were even higher among children and young adults under the age of 25. An estimated 12 million individuals between the ages of 5 and 22 years suffer a sports related injury annually, and about 20 percent of all injury-related emergency room visits are among children 6 to 19 years of age.” The most common basketball injuries for adults 25 to 40 years-old were ankle and knee sprains, then facial injuries and broken fingers. NBA veteran and Miami Heat forward Shane Battier said that through 25 years of competitive basketball, he’s received over 90 stitches from elbows to the face, sprained his ankles more than 25 times, suffered broken elbows, reconstructive ankle surgery and arthritis in the knees and the hip. “These injuries can happen to anyone,” said Shellie Pfohl, executive director of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. “For those without health insurance they

can be very expensive.” According to the HHS report: “For 25- to 40-year-olds, the estimated average charges for a leg fracture were about $3,403, while the estimated average charges for an arm fracture were about $7,666 (2011 dollars), according to 2009-2011 pooled data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey.” In 2012, emergency departments treated nearly 600,000 basketball injuries. For adults, sprains cost on average $2,294 and broken arms cost $7,666, medical expenses that most people would struggle to pay out of pocket the report noted. Emergency rooms reported almost 500,000 football injuries coming through their doors and about 10,000 of those required hospitalization. The costs associated with treating a broken leg for someone 10- to 19 years-old was $4,700 and a broken arm cost almost $3,000. Charges for treating dislocations for the same age group averaged $6,900 and for 25 to 40 year-olds the average was roughly $4,600. The average cost for treated sprains and strains was about $2,300. The rate of injuries in basketball and football may have a disproportionate impact in the Black community, where young Black men play basketball and football at higher rates than their White peers. In a blog post on the report at http://www.hhs.gov/healthcare/, Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services wrote that six out of 10 uninsured Americans will pay about $100 a month or less for a health insurance plan.

AG Harris, U.S. State Attorney General Sign Anti-Money Laundering Cooperation Agreement with Mexico

MEXICO CITY -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris and four other state attorneys general signed a letter of intent with the National Banking and Securities Commission of Mexico to establish a bi-national working group on money laundering enforcement. The delegation of U.S. state attorneys general is in Mexico to strengthen working relationships with governments of both countries and enhance efforts to combat transnational crime. "The laundering of money fuels transnational criminal organizations and threatens California's economy and our public safety," Attorney General Harris said. "This bi-national agreement will create the cooperation and communication needed to disrupt the financing of transnational crime. I want to thank my colleagues and the Mexican government for their steadfast commitment to addressing this serious issue." Last week, Attorney General Harris issued a report, Gangs Beyond Borders: California and the Fight Against Transnational Organized Crime, that identified California as a key portal for the transfer of illicit money. According to the report, transnational

criminal organizations transfer billions of dollars out of the U.S. through California. As much as $40 billion in illicit funds were laundered in the state in 2012. The bi-national agreement will develop an anti-money laundering working group with the following purposes: • Establish the scope of coordination between Mexico and U.S. state attorneys general on money laundering enforcement issues. •Develop a plan for mutual technical assistance and training on combating money laundering. • Share best practices on money laundering enforcement techniques and other enforcement issues of mutual concern, including the impact of money laundering on the border region of the U.S. and Mexico. The delegation of U.S. state attorneys general, including California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris, Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, and New Mexico Attorney General Gary King signed the letter of intent with Jaime Gonzalez Aguadé, President

of the National Banking and Securities Commission of Mexico. On Monday, the U.S. delegation of state attorneys general met with Mexican state attorneys general to discuss various issues related to transnational crime, including high-tech crime, human trafficking, and the use and adoption of technology. The delegation met with Mexican state attorneys general from Baja California, Chihuahua, Campeche, Distrito Federal, Jalisco, Sonora, and Zacatecas. On Monday, the delegation also met with Mexican Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam to strengthen cooperation in the fight against transnational crime in the areas of drug, human, and weapons trafficking, money laundering, cybercrime and use of technology in law enforcement. Attorney General Harris’ report last week was the first comprehensive report analyzing the current state of transnational criminal organizations in California and the threats they pose to the state’s public safety and economy, including the problem of money laundering. The report is available here: https://oag.ca.gov/transnational-organized-crime

NNPA, From page 3A hampering the economic growth of the country. “Reagan told the 80 percent at the top of the economic ladder that they were being hurt by the 20 percent on the bottom because of the government,” he said. “That is an example of class warfare and there are some people now trying to recreate that Reagan moment.” Anderson, who received national attention in 2009 when she and her family decided to live for a year solely on products and services provided by Black businesses, wrote a book, Our

Black Year, that chronicled the struggle for Black businesses in the Chicago metropolitan area despite its huge Black population and spending power. ”There was only one Black grocery store in all of Chicago and it was very nice,” she said. “It only lasted eight months.” Anderson managed to buy gas from a Black-owned Citgo service station that was miles away from her home and frequently bought produce from Black farmers in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. She said the experience taught her that Black businesses do not engage Black

consumers enough and the services of Black professionals must be used. “In order to find a Black business, one should go to their area Black chamber of commerce and Urban League,” she said. Ron Busby, president of the U.S. Black Chambers Inc., said that sometimes Black businesses do not want to be identified as such, which he said is a mistake. “There is a stigma about Black businesses not being good enough to provide quality services and products and that is not true,” Busby said. “Businesses should be proud to be Black.”

COMMUNITY CALENDAR

MARCH 28, 2014

Brad Mehldau Trio and Joshua Redman Quartet at the Walt Disney Concert Hall

Milkshake at Campbell Hall

Ventura Jazz Collective at Squashed Grapes

Saturday, March 29 at 7 p.m. at 2351 E. Main St. in Ventura The Ventura Jazz Collective is a group of musicians that play and love jazz – the great American art form. We enjoy performing straight ahead jazz in various formats, ranging from a duo of guitar and bass to a vocal sextet. Available to play shows, private events, and clubs the VJC is dedicated to providing great jazz that engages but never intrudes, invites but never overwhelms. The VJC is comprised of seasoned musicians that include guitar, sax, flute, percussion, bass, and vocals. We are familiar with jazz standards and enjoy playing all styles from Latin to Bebop, from Swing to West Coast Jazz. Band members include Bill Bannister on Keyboards, Doug Johnson on Drums, Patrick Martin on Tenor Sax, and Pablo Plasencia on Bass with guests singer Crystal Rose Sanchez and Alto Saxman Sal Avila. For more information, call (805) 643-7300.

Wednesday, April 2 at 8 p.m. at 111 South Grand Avenue, in Los Angeles A night of cerebral explorations and improvisations that burst with color and angularity: Brad Mehldau (left) opens with inventive reworkings of pop songs in his volatile rhythmic style. Mehldau’s musical personality forms a dichotomy. He is first and foremost an improviser, and greatly cherishes the surprise and wonder that can occur from a spontaneous musical idea that is expressed directly, in real time. But he also has a deep fascination for the formal architecture of music, and it informs everything he plays. Tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman (right) and his quartet are ambitious, technically brilliant and adventurous. Redman infuses traditional acoustic jazz quartet instrumentation with a progressive attitude and modern sound, creating music that is rhythmically and technically complex and at the same time harmonically rich, melodically satisfying, and emotionally compelling. For more information, call (323) 850-2000.

Tuesday, April 8 at 8 p.m. at 800 W. Olympic Blvd., in Los Angeles For Ziggy Marley, his latest vehicle of expression the album Fly Rasta, represented a galactic sonic journey. The trip began in early 2013 with a handwritten note by the six-time Grammy Award winner (with his most recent being the 2014 Best Reggae Album Grammy for Ziggy Marley In Concert). He sat in his home recording studio, took out a scrap of paper, and began to think about what would become his fifth solo studio album. The concept was simple: make a record that was true to himself, and expanded the territories of the traditional reggae sound by exploring new musical spaces. He had brought strands of other genres into his previous albums, but now he was looking further into the musical universe, like the deep-space eye of the Hubble telescope. Fly Rasta, scheduled for release April 14, fulfills Ziggy’s mission by marrying his own distinctive reggae sound with elements of psychedelica, rock, funk, soul and pop, exploring further musical zones with the addition of sitar, tabla and taiko drums. Tickets are $31 in advance and $36 the day of the show. This is an all ages event For more information, call (213) 765-7000.
