Basketball legend enhances business portfolio while helping minorities

Magic Johnson By Stacy M. Brown When Earvin “Magic” Johnson starred in the NBA, there proved no better assist man than No. 32.

With seemingly great ease and the grace of a ballet dancer, the “Magic Man” helped turn ordinary players into stars and good players into great ones. Today, at 54, the retired Los Angeles Lakers legend has built an empire in which the assists he dishes out are so much more important than the ones he issued on the hardwood during his playing days. In an exclusive interview, the ever-enthusiastic Hall of Famer explained how and why his Magic Johnson Enterprises serves as a catalyst for driving unparalleled businesses for MAGIC, See page 12A

Around the Tri-Counties How to get rid of the I feel “DOWN Feelings” Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan Have you ever had a feeling that you can’t even describe, you simply call it” I just feel down”. Well the feeling of “DOWN” is a pain in your heart, when you know that something isn’t quite right with your life. The “DOWN” feelings are all the frustrations, the fears, the dullness, the sense of loss you may feel as you make it through each day as you provide for others, but neglect yourself. The “DOWN” feelings can be very damaging. They rob you of your strength that’s needed to seek your happiness, inner growth, healing, peace, and your ability to stay focused. It makes you feel like there’s no way out. You’re not alone in feeling “DOWN” most people are suffering, too. Most don’t know how to deal with the feeling

of “DOWN” so they suppress it and pretend it’s not there. It’s like burying something alive. The problem is it will resurrect, and often times when it does it is so damaging that it takes years to undo the damage. Many have lost jobs, relationships, friendships, finances, and even health, because they don’t know the proper way to deal with the, “DOWN” feelings! Do any of these statements describe you at this season of your life? • You feel like you’re just going through the motions of your life without any pleasure or sense of purpose. • You feel like romance has left your relationship. • You were often criticized as a child. Now you feel you must earn love and be sweet and selfless. • You can’t stand up for yourself when you’re mistreated. • You or your mate, don’t think your feelings count. • You have given up the most precious parts of yourself, or the things you love, to take care of other people. • You feel overwhelmed by resentment or guilt. • You’re not sleeping or eating properly. • You’re tired, bored or Paid Advertisement

sad… drained of your life force. • You have a lot of anger, but you’re afraid to express it. • You often feel no one understands you. • One unkind word can completely break down your self-esteem. Make no mistake; the “DOWN” feelings are real.. The good news is that the solution is real too. These feelings you have are very simple but, not easy to get rid of. They stem from ideas about yourself that you learned, from society, from your parents, your mate, your relationships. These messengers tell you how you’re supposed to act and think, and you may feel, as many people do, torn between what you need, and what you feel. Our culture taught us to be self-sacrificing, and on the other hand we have been taught to be independent and assertive. Sometimes it leaves us with an unclear idea of what we should do. Many people doubt their choices and are full of guilt and resentment. No matter what path you choose, you must have a game plan if you expect to reach the finish line. You DOWN, See page 12A

Rubicon Theatre Company Continues Season with Noises Off

Ventura, CA – Rubicon Theatre continues the company’s 16th Not Your Typical Season with sardines and lingerie in NOISES OFF, a comic romp by Michael Frayn about the outrageous exploits of a company of actors which opens Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at Rubicon Theatre, 1006 E.

VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. – 2014 marks the Ventura County Public Works Agency’s (VCPWA) 60th anniversary. Since its inception, the VCPWA has faced challenges, natural and man-made, as population and development have grown through the decades. On Jan. 12, 1954, several independently functioning units within the region were consolidated into a single public works department.

The County’s population was 141,300 and Camarillo, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Moorpark were not yet cities. The agency operated with 265 people and had expenditures of less than $4 million. Challenges at the time were urban growth, adequate water supply, enforcement activities, personnel shortages, and capital project funding. Today, the County population is over 831,700

and the Agency operates with 393 employees and an operating and capital budget of $497.0 million. Current challenges still include growth, adequate water supply, enforcement activities, and capital project funding (all on a much larger scale), but now also include sustainability and succession planning. The Agency is now made up of five departments: Central AGENCY, See page 12A

The People’s Throb Golden Globes, Oscars, What Movie Did You See in 2013, That Deserves to Win The Highest Award?

Kim Tillman, 34 Oxnard CA “The Butler” was my favorite film for 2013. I appreciate the insight on the importance of service and the work that was done to breakdown barriers so that we can enjoy the opportunities to work and pursue advancement in our careers today. The acting by Oprah Winfrey was exceptional. Her honest portrayal of the Butler’s wife captured the essence of that era.”

Doctor Ingrid Dineen-Wimberly, 46 New York City, NY “12 Years A Slave”, by far was my favorite movie of 2013 because it dramatized the real life manuscript of a man who experienced life as a man both free and a slave in 19th century America. It was painful, yet inspirational. Most importantly, it was historically accurate.”

“Silver Linings Playbook”. The movie covered issues involving mental, social, and financial. The material covered was inspiring yet sad. But overall, despite some of the difficult scenes, I found the movie inspiring.”

“My favorite 2013 movie was “The Butler” because it highlighted good old fashioned parenting, with the discipline that is necessary to raise children.”

“My favorite movie of 2013 was “Best Man’s Holiday”. I saw the original and loved it, and had been waiting for the sequel.”

“White House Down” was my favorite. I liked this movie because it had never-ending twist and turns. It was unpredictable, and I was not able to figure this movie out completely before it ended. Also, of course I loved the fact that it was an action movie of a Black President of the United States. I love Jamie Fox and Channing Tatum.”

Laying the Groundwork for Nonviolent Change

Martin Luther King, Sr. Indeed, Martin Luther King was born Michael King in 1929, it was as a teenager he chose to change his name to Martin Luther King Jr, after his father the preacher. Both Martin Luther and Martin Luther King Jr went to university and gained doctorates in Theology. Martin Luther became an Augustinian monk and lecturer at the University of Wittenberg. Martin Luther King became a pastor at his father's church in Alabama. They both started to write, committing their thoughts and beliefs to paper. A single issue for each of them was to spark their lifelong battles for reform. For Martin Luther, the Catholic monk, it was his parishioners buying indulgences, purchasing their salvation to fill Rome's

Police arrest 18-year-old for 3 sexual assaults, seeking other victims

Simi Valley police arrested 18-year-old Christopher Ng, for three separate sexual assaults. Police suspect there may be more victims. Ng was identified as the predator who committed the crime on November 22, 2013. Detectives discovered during their investigation two other sexual assaults that Ng was linked to. Ng used Facebook to contact his victims. The suspect used different names, including “Chris Pastrana” and contacted numerous other girls through Facebook. The victims ranged in age from 13 to 41, police said. While two of the vic-

tims were acquaintances of the suspect, investigators say one of the victims was a complete stranger. Ng was arrested on Sunday and held on $100,000 bond. He was scheduled to

be arraigned on Wednesday, January 22. Anyone with information related to the case is urged to call the Simi Valley Police Department at (805) 583-6248.

If a student supplies a college or university with an incorrect taxpayer ID number (TIN) and the school, in good faith, uses that TIN when it reports tuition payments to the IRS via Form 1098-T, who is ultimately responsible for the error? According to the IRS, the institution of higher education is. And while the government has levied penalties on colleges and universities for these errors in the past, now it appears to be taking a more aggressive approach: Recently many schools have received IRS Notice 972CG, assessing automatic penalties on their organization for incorrect or incomplete Forms 1098-T.

Complicating matters, some schools may voluntarily file Forms 1098-T for foreign students who lack a TIN. The instructions say a Form 1098-T isn’t required in these cases unless requested, so this voluntary report can be a contributing factor in the IRS’s penalty assessments. What’s more, because these penalties haven’t always been enforced in the past, schools may not be proactively and repeatedly asking students for their TINs, resulting in incomplete Forms 1098-T. From the IRS’s perspective, it’s a matter of verification. The IRS relies on Form 1098-T to help it determine which students are eligible for a variety of education-

related tax credits, such as the Hope and Lifetime Learning Credit. Invalid or missing TINs hinder the IRS’s ability to process those determinations. However, from a higher education institution’s perspective, it’s a potentially challenging liability to wrestle with. Fortunately, there may be ways to ease the impact. Penalty Waivers Available When colleges and universities collect students’ TINs, they rely on that data in good faith. And even though the IRS appears to be penalizing institutions for the sometimes poor quality of that data, Treasury Department regulations offer a remedy: If IRS, See page 12A

Sports News Concussion Protocol Violated by Two Players

By Barry Wilner BOSTON — Two players violated league concussion protocol during the wild-card games, according to a letter sent by the NFL's head, neck and spine committee chairmen to all team doctors and trainers. In a document obtained by The Associated Press, Drs. Hunt Batjer and Richard Ellenbogen said one player re-entered the game and another refused to leave the sideline. The doctors did not identify the players, but one was Green Bay tackle David Bakhtiari, who went into the game for an extra-point try despite being examined for a concussion and not cleared. The other player was Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis, who remained on the sideline but did not get back on the field. "On two occasions, and contrary to the advice of the team medical staffs, players who had been diagnosed with a concussion and therefore declared ineligible for play nonetheless refused to leave the sidelines as required by league concussion protocols," the letter said. "In one case, the player went back onto the field for one play before being removed from the game." The doctors found "no

Green Bay tackle David Bakhtiari fault" in how the team medical staffs conducted themselves. "If a player refuses to follow your advice and leave the sidelines after being diagnosed with a concussion, we recommend that the head athletic trainer seek assistance from the player's position coach (or another member of the coaching staff) or from another team official to remove the player from the sidelines as soon as possible," the letter said. The NFL's Madden Rule requires a player diagnosed with a concussion to be taken to the locker room or another quiet location. "We will continue working with the league to ensure that team doctors, coaches, trainers and other members of a team's medi-

Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis cal staff enforce return-toparticipation protocols," the NFL Players Association said in an email. "Players naturally want to play and ultimately, the game-day medical and coaching staffs have the responsibility and obligation for player protection and care." The Saints and Packers declined comment. No fines will be imposed for the violations. Bakhtiari's season is over because Green Bay lost to San Francisco. But Lewis' Saints are playing at Seattle and he has been practicing. Batjer and Ellenbogen noted in the letter how players may resist being kept out of the game, particularly during the postseason.

J.R. Smith Tries Same Trick After Reported Warning

J.R. Smith first quarter. But Monroe moved his foot away and avoided Smith while Josh Smith was at the foul line. Smith reached down during the free throw despite getting "interrogated by the NBA" and receiving a "warning" over untying Marion's shoe prior to the Knicks' win over the Pistons, Marc Berman of the New York Post reported citing an unnamed industry source. Steve Popper of The Bergen Record also reported that Smith received a warning. Knicks coach Mike Woodson said that he planned on speaking to Smith about the incident before the game. "He shouldn't be doing stuff like that," Woodson said, per Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com. "I'm going to talk to him a little more about it when I get in there. His focus should just be on playing basketball. That's what it's about and those are things you just don't do. You think you've seen it all and something creeps in." Smith was fined for attempting the shoe trick again.

Venus Williams Loses in Australian Open 1st Round

By John Pye MELBOURNE, Australia — Venus Williams was moving freely in her first-round match at the Australian Open, breezing through the first set and getting a look at another break in the second against a player who upset her sister here two years ago. That's when things started to go wrong for her the first day of the seasonopening major. The seventime Grand Slam champion missed the break-point chance in the sixth game and then, after getting to 40-30 on serve in the ninth, inexplicably firing three consecutive double-faults to surrender a break and just about the set to No. 22-seeded Ekaterina Makarova. After a quick break and a change of her selfdesigned zebra print dress, she took a 3-0 lead in the third before her unforced error toll climbed to 56 and Makarova won six of the next seven games for a 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 win. The 33-year-old Williams, the second-oldest player in the tournament,

NEW YORK - Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were elected to baseball's Hall of Fame, while Craig Biggio fell two votes short. Maddux was picked on 555 of 571 ballots by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. His 97.2 percentage was the eighth-highest in the history of voting. Glavine, Maddux's longtime teammate in the Atlanta rotation, appeared on 525 ballots and received 91.9 percent. Thomas, the first Hall of Famer who spent the majority of his career as a designated hitter, was at 483. The trio will be inducted in Cooperstown on July 27 along with managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa, elected last month by the expansion-

Among pitchers with 3,000 innings whose careers began in 1921 or later - after the Dead Ball Era Maddux’s 1.80 walks per nine innings is second only to Robin Roberts’ 1.73, according to STATS. Glavine, a 10-time AllStar and a two-time Cy Young winner, was 305203 over 22 seasons.

"I have to give her a lot of credit, though, she was very determined ... played hard."

Cam Newton's 1st Playoff Game Ends with Disappointment

By Aaron Beard CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Most of his Carolina Panthers teammates had cleared out of the locker room by the time a somber Cam Newton sat down at his locker to mull how his first playoff game ended with a loss. Cornerback Drayton Florence walked by with a consoling pat on Newton's right shoulder. Moments later, safety Mike Mitchell stopped to whisper something to his quarterback. These moments — the missed opportunities, the sting that comes with having a season end abruptly — will stay with the former No. 1 overall draft pick after the 23-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC divisional round. "We have to accept the task at hand and make the most of it because playoff

Cam Newton football is a different speed than the regular season," Newton said. "I learned that firsthand today. "You have to seize the moment when a moment allows. We had too many opportunities that we let slip through our hands. That was just the story of the day." It took Newton, the

former Heisman Trophy winner who led Auburn to a national championship in 2010, three seasons to reach the playoffs. He led a Panthers team that started 1-3 to eight straight wins to turn around their season and win the franchise's fourth division title, the No. 2 playoff seed and a first-round bye. Playing in front of a sellout home crowd in Carolina's first playoff appearance since 2008, Newton shook off a first-series interception and had the Panthers offense moving early. But Carolina struggled to finish first-half drives against a playoff-tested defense, then couldn't get much going through the second half as Colin Kaepernick got the 49ers back to the NFC championship game for the third straight season.

By Adrienne Lu In the not too distant past, kindergarten was a place where children learned to color, share and play. But a higher regard for kindergarten is emerging, including a move toward all-day sessions in some states, as a growing body of research underscores the importance of learning in the earliest years. The percentage of kindergartners attending fullday programs has grown from about 10 percent in the 1970s to about 76 percent in 2012, with a steep increase between 2002 and 2006, according to Child Trends, a nonprofit research center. While some programs took a hit during the recession, several states have taken action recently to expand access to full-day kindergarten. Part-day kindergarten typically last two or three hours, while fullday kindergarten can range from four to seven hours. Washington lawmak-

ChildFund:

ers, for example, added $50 million to spending on full-day kindergarten this school year, making twice as many children eligible to attend full-day classes compared to last year. The state expects to offer fullday kindergarten to all students by 2017-18. Minnesota last year allocated $134 million to allow all school districts to offer full-day kindergarten, and state officials expect close to 95 percent of students will attend full-

day programs starting in September. Currently, just over half of kindergartners in Minnesota public school attend full-day programs. Indiana has provided funding for universal, voluntary full-day kindergarten since the 2012-13 school year. In Kansas, Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has proposed a five-year $80 million plan to allow all kindergarten students to attend full-day programs.

States Take Steps for Full-Day Kindergarten

(NewsUSA) - ChildFund has put Richmond, Va., on the map. All over it, actually. The international child-focused development and protection agency currently serves children in 30 countries. Yet, when you count all the places the organization has worked in the 75 years since its 1938 founding, ChildFund has touched lives in nearly 100 nations across Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. The original idea from 1938 was simple: Create a connection between individuals who want to give and children in need. After its founding as China's Children Fund, the organization expanded its reach to other countries, and for decades was known as Christian Children's Fund -- advertising on TV with a phone number to call and sponsor a

child living in poverty. ChildFund International, as the organization is known today, still maintains the individual sponsor-to-child relationship. Its approach, though, has evolved into one of community development, with sponsor funds pooled to improve environments in the communities where sponsored children live. Support from diverse do-

nors and institutions allow ChildFund to expand its work for children. Through the years, ChildFund has learned many things about children. Children need loving caregivers, health care, nutrition, clean water and sanitation, education, opportunity and safety. If any one of these is missing, a CHILDFUND, See page 12A

State News Congresswoman Waters Encourages Jackson Named Chair of the Breast Cancer Survivors to Stay Strong Senate Judiciary Committee

Los Angeles, CA – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), a longtime advocate of breast cancer awareness, education and research, showed support for urban women and their families struggling with cancer at the inaugural Life Worth Saving Awards & Fundraiser Luncheon this past weekend. The founder of Life Worth Saving, Yvette Pye, is in her third fight against cancer. The organization understands that the effects of life-threatening diseases can potentially become devastating and serves as a vehicle to empower, educate and heal the community. The event was held at the Century Community Charter School in Inglewood, CA. Attendees included gospel duo Mary

SACRAMENTO – State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) announced that she has been named chair of the Senator Judiciary Committee by Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. “I’m extremely honored to be named to chair this important committee,” Jackson said. “One of my priorities is going to be ensuring that all Californians have access to justice in the wake of budget cuts that have decimated our court system. An effective and efficient judicial branch is absolutely critical to a functioning democracy.” “I’m delighted that Senator Jackson’s long-term dedication to the people of California will guide one of the Legislature’s most demanding committees, “

said Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. “She is a hard-working and diligent member who will bring great focus to this important task.” The Senate Judiciary

Committee’s focus includes legislation related to courts, consumer protection, privacy, equality, and family law, among other issues. Jackson, who was elected to the State Senate in 2012, practiced law for 22 years before entering the State Legislature. She is a former Deputy District Attorney. For more than 15 years, she was a managing partner of a law firm where she specialized in civil litigation and family law. From 1998 to 2004, she represented the 35th Assembly District in the State Assembly. Jackson represents the 19th Senate District, which includes all of Santa Barbara County and western Ventura County.

Assemblyman Dan Logue this decision, beginning to draft this legislation and urging the Governor and legislative leaders to call a special session to address this flaw with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. “Time and time again people were promised that if they liked their plan, and if they liked their doctor, they would be able to keep it,” said Logue. “I am proud to carry this legislation to hold up the promise that others could not keep. If Californians purchased their health insurance while it was legal then it should not be taken away from them. The implemen-

tation of Obamacare has resulted in multiple problems for the people it was supposedly meant to help and I hope that this bill will be able correct just one of those problems.” Eleven legislators have signed on to co-author this legislation alongside Assemblyman Logue which include: Assembly Republican Leader, Connie Conway, 26th District, Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian, 35th District, Assemblyman Travis Allen, 77th District, Assemblyman Donald Wagner, 68th District, Assemblymember Beth Gaines, 6th District, Assemblyman Brian Jones, 71st District, Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, 33rd District, Assemblyman Brian Nestande, 42nd District, Assemblymember Diane Harkey, 73rd District, Assemblymember Shannon Grove, 34th District, and Assemblymember Melissa Melendez, 67th District. Assemblyman Logue represents the 3rd Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Tehama, Glenn, Butte, Colusa, Sutter, and Yuba.

Congresswoman Lee Urges Postal Service Assemblyman Logue Introduces AB 1507 to to Halt Historic Buildings Sales Give Californians Their Health Plans Back

Congresswoman Barbara Lee explained that multiple provisions included in the omnibus appropriations bill unveiled on Monday urged the U.S. Postal Service to halt sales of historic post office buildings. One provision instructs the USPS to enact a moratorium on the sales until after the release of a pending Inspector General report on the legality of the sales. A second provision directs the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to issue a report on how to ensure the USPS follows the law in its sales of historic properties. The Inspector General

Congresswoman Barbara Lee report, which Congresswoman Lee formally commented on, will also examine whether the USPS is following applicable histor-

ic preservation laws in their historic building sales procedures and whether they have solicited sufficient public input in this process. Many community leaders and government officials feel that the laws have been skirted in these sales. “The language in the omnibus appropriations bill is clear: the USPS needs to put sales of historic Post Offices on hold while we wait to see what the Inspector General’s report and the ACHP reports say,” said Congresswoman Lee. “Buildings like the Berkeley Main Post Office are central to our communities LEE, See page 12A

Assembly Republicans responded almost immediately to

National News University Forbids New President from Detroit Man While Family Waits 46 Minutes for Ambulance Living with Potential Love Interests

Gwendolyn Boyd mingham News reports. According to her contract, the 58-year-old will receive an annual salary of $300,000, a car, and the on campus presidential residence. However, Boyd, who is single and lives

alone, is not allowed to cohabitate with anyone with whom she is romantically involved with who is not her husband. She is also forbidden from allowing immediate family members to reside in the home. The stipulation is outlined in a clause in her contract: For so long as Dr. Boyd is president and a single person, she shall not be allowed to cohabitate in the president’s residence with any person with whom she has a romantic relation. Boyd, an ASU alum, graduated in 1977 with a bachelors in mathematics. She went on to attend Yale University's School of Engineering in New Haven, BOYD, See page 12A

Parents say they no longer forgive a neighbor who fatally shot their teenaged son after he stumbled home drunk one night late in March and entered the wrong Virginia house. Caleb Gordley's parents initially accepted Donald West Wilder's claim that he fired several shots in selfdefense at whom he thought was an intruder. They are now saying that their 16-year-old was murdered. A new look at the evidence led the Gordleys to reverse their opinion about what happened after their son climbed through a window in a house two doors away from his actual home, according to station WJLA. The autopsy allegedly

Caleb Gordley shows that the fatal bullet struck Gordley in the back. The Stanley, Va., couple also lost faith in their neighbor because Wilder never told police that the intoxicated teen acted aggressively. “At no point ... did he

ever describe Caleb in any way being aggressive,” Shawn Gordley, Caleb's father, said on ABC's "20/20". Gorley says he's now "not one percent forgiving" of Wilder, according to WJLA. "Once I got the details, I was absolutely outraged." On the same TV network a few months earlier, Gordley's mother sent a significantly different message to Wilder: "I forgive you. I understand this was an accident." On the night Gordley died, he had been grounded, but he sneaked out to drink with friends. On his way home, he apparently got confused by the similarities between the two homes. PARENTS, See page 12A

Greg Brannon, a North Carolina Republican running for U.S. Senate, has argued that the food stamp program is comparable to slavery, calling on lawmakers to abolish the Department of Agriculture. In an interview recorded in October and unearthed by Mother Jones, Brannon characterized the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program as "goodies" given out by the government. "We're taking our plunder, that's taken from us as individuals.. and the government is now keeping itself in power by giving these goodies away," Brannon said. "The answer is the Department of Agri-

instead of giving them fish. When you're at the behest of somebody else, you are actually a slavery to them.. That kind of charity does not make people freer." Brannon, a tea partyaligned Republican, is vying for the Republican nomination in the race to unseat Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.). Brannon, a doctor, has named Jesse Helms, the longtime arch-conservative former senator who opposed the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act, as an inspiration. He's also spoken out against public education, and has claimed that "all ten of Marx's planks of communism are law in our land today."

By David Moye A kindergarten teacher in Memphis, Tenn., is being accused of locking a student in a closet and then forgetting about her after she went home sick. Kristin Ohsfeldt, who teaches at A.B. Hill Elementary, allegedly punished Akeelah Joseph, 5, by locking her in a closet as punishment. “I was playing too much,” Akeelah told WREG-TV. Deanna Williams, whose granddaughter is also in Ohsfeldt’s class, said the girl likes Ohsfeldt and that the closet is a form of time-out. “[My granddaughter] also said that the teacher is a nice teacher but when the teacher puts them in there for time out that she gives them a book, she gives them beads to count and it’s just a time-out, but my concern was why we weren’t informed,” Williams told WAFB-TV. In Akeelah’s case, it was more than a time-out. It seems Ohsfeldt went home sick and forgot to let Akeelah out or inform her fellow employees, CBS News reported. A substitute teacher finally found the girl and released her, Fox17.com reported. Akeelah’s mother, Wanda Joseph, said the princi-

Akeelah Joseph pal called two hours after it happened, and that it was the first time her daughter had been in trouble. “I am hearing that the teacher locked my child in a closet because she was supposedly bad. You don’t do that. I hurried up to the school and started yelling, ‘Where my daughter at? Where my daughter at?’” Joseph said, WATE-TV reported. “She was cold. She came out cold and shaking. Plus she has asthma. She could have had an asthma attack in that closet!” Joseph and the school’s principal filed a police report about the incident. Ohsfeldt was suspended with pay. The Shelby County School system, Memphis police and the state Department of Children’s Services are all investigating the incident, the New York Daily News reported.

With the limited number of black, female university presidents, we're usually quick to celebrate any woman and college that can add the rare feat to their resume.

Questions to Ask When Shopping for a Tax Professional

(NewsUSA) - Although you may not have received all of your tax documents yet, it's not too early to start looking for someone to prepare your tax return. Remember, not all tax preparers are created equal. So, when shopping around, ask yourself a few important questions: 1. What kind of tax preparer should I look for? Enrolled agents (EAs), certified public accountants (CPAs), commercial firms and seasonal tax preparers are popular choices for tax preparation. However, only EAs, CPAs and attorneys can represent a taxpayer before the IRS. The money you may save using an unqualified preparer could be overshadowed by the tax you may pay if the unqualified preparer is unfamiliar with current, legitimate tax deductions and credits. Many states have no special licensing laws for tax preparers, but enrolled agents receive their authority from the federal government. They are "agents" because they are authorized to appear in place of a taxpayer in dealing with IRS audits, collections or appeals. Enrolled agents earn their credential by passing a comprehensive exam administered by the IRS that covers the broad range of tax issues that affect individuals and businesses, and how to represent clients before the IRS.

2. Is the tax preparer knowledgeable and up to date? Members of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) are required to complete 30 hours of continuing professional education each year to maintain membership. This surpasses the IRS licensing requirement of 24 hours per year. Continuing education ensures that EAs keep abreast of constantly changing tax laws and regulations. Many EAs are also experienced in tax and financial planning, estate and trust services, small business consultation and more. 3. Is the tax preparer bound by any ethical standards? Enrolled agents are required to abide by U.S. Treasury Department Circular 230, which details the standards of professional conduct. EAs who violate the provisions of

Make sure your tax preparer has been trained properly. Circular 230 may be suspended or disbarred from practice. EAs are also subject to vigorous background checks before they receive their licenses. 4. What are your needs? Are you sure that you are getting all of the eligible deductions or tax credits? Perhaps it's been a while since you filed a tax return. Maybe you are one of the millions of Americans who started their own business, and this is the first time you are filing a business return. Enrolled agents prepare millions of tax returns each year and are an excellent resource for anyone seeking up-to-date information on all tax-related issues!

Although many economists claim the recession is over, millions of Americans are still reeling from its financial effects. In particular, communities of color continue to be disproportionately affected by billion-dollar losses in family wealth. New mortgage rules, effective this month, offer a strong foundation to begin rebuilding what has been lost. These new rules will provide protections for consumers whether they are struggling with troubled mortgages, looking to buy a home or seeking access to credit. Summarizing the reasons for the new rules, Richard Cordray, Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently said, “Consumers want – and need – someone to stand on their side and provide safeguards against bad mortgage deals that ruin their credit, cost them their homes, and saddle them with additional problems. . . .No debt traps. No surprises. No runarounds. These are bedrock concepts backed by our new

common-sense rules that take effect on January 10.” A central part of the new rules is a new designation of a Qualified Mortgage (QM) that sets standards that apply to all lenders and covers about 95 percent of loans currently in the marketplace. QM loans are restricted from having the kind of risky features that caused the financial crisis. QM loans must be fully amortization, meaning that loan balances cannot increase as payments are made. Other key QM characteristics require that: • Loan terms cannot exceed 30 years; • Lenders are required to determine a borrower’s ability to repay the loan, reviewing consumer income and assets against debt and other obligations beyond an initial teaser rate; • Points and fees for the total loan amount are capped at 3 percent with an adjusted threshold for smaller loans; and • Lenders offering adjustable rate loans cannot use teaser rates to underwrite these loans and are to use the maximum rate

during the first five years of the loan. Another CFPB rule bans “yield-spread premiums,” the financial incentives formerly paid to brokers for steering borrowers into higher cost loans rather than those that were cheaper and for which they qualified. It is important to note that none of these new rules affects the required amount of a mortgage down payment. Secondly, these rules apply to new mortgages applied for after the January 10 effective date. For borrowers with existing mortgages, as well as future borrowers, other rules will now affect mortgage servicing, i.e. how house payments are collected and managed. Loan servicers must now provide borrowers with a monthly statement that shows the interest rate, loan balance, escrow account balance DREAM, See page 12A

U.S. Postpones 2014 Hike in Mortgage Fees

By Les Christie NEW YORK -- Planned fee increases that would have added to the cost of millions of mortgages will be postponed. Currently, borrowers seeking loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are set to pay higher upfront fees starting April 1. The fees, ordered by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, are meant to help safeguard banks against risky borrowers who might default. But housing experts say they will add thousands of dollars to the cost of all mortgages insured by Fannie and Freddie, with the biggest hits taken by borrowers with less than perfect credit histories. The new chief of the FHFA, Mel Watt, said he intends to postpone the fees -- and perhaps even cancel them -- until more analysis is done. The FHFA oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Watt, a former Democratic member of Congress, has been confirmed to his post by the Senate and took office on January 6. In a statement, Watt said he intends to “evalu-

ate fully the rationale” for the fees and their impact on Fannie and Freddie and the “availability of credit.” The mortgage industry has been bracing for substantial increases in the price of loans in 2014. “If these [policies] had been implemented, it would have increased borrowing costs dramatically,” said David Stevens, CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association. The hit for individual borrowers would depend on the amount of the home purchase being financed, according to Brian Koss, executive vice president at Massachusetts-based lend-

The latest Housing Scorecard from the Obama Administration shows progress on several fronts—notably home prices—but continues the familiar cautionary language in describing the recovery.

are continuing to make progress helping struggling home owners get back on their feet,” says Edward J. Szymanoski, associate deputy assistant secretary for economic affairs. “Since the beginning of 2012, the number of home owners underwater has declined by 5.7 million and homeowners’ equity has risen by 55 percent to $9.7 trillion. There remains more work to do to address the 6.4 million home owners who remain underwater; nevertheless, these are encouraging signs that the housing market recovery

er Mortgage Network. Borrowers would have paid a fee when they took out the loan, or they could have effectively rolled the higher fees into their interest rate, raising monthly mortgage payments by as much as a quarter percentage point. Even with the reversal, however, mortgages will probably get more expensive over the next few months anyway as the Federal Reserve cuts back on its purchases of mortgage backed securities, a program designed to keep interest rates low. Stevens, the mortgage industry representative, said the proposed increases made little sense. Defaults on mortgages made in recent years have been much lower than on those made before the housing crash. As a result, Fannie and Freddie are flush with profits, so much so that they have already returned almost all of their $187 billion taxpayer-funded bailout. “The GSEs are making a lot of money,” said Stevens. “There’s no rationale for the increases.” To top of page

As of December 2013, nearly 1.3 million home owners have received permanent loan modifications through the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).

Should You Move to Live Near Your Grandchildren?

By Donne Davis When I became a grandma ten years ago, I wished I didn't have to drive two hours to see my granddaughter. Whenever I visited, my daughter showed me the latest house for sale in her neighborhood. But I didn't want to move. One of my friends told me: "I'd never relocate near my grandchildren. I'd be giving up too much and it's such a big risk." I know three grandmas who took that risk. They sold their homes and moved to be near their grandchildren. These grandmas left family and friends they'd known for 45 years to be closer to their grandchildren. I'm awed by their courage to start over at this stage in their lives, as well as their commitment to their grandchildren. Here are some things to consider about moving near your family. Pros • Getting to know your grandchildren as they grow up. • Getting help from

adult children with decisions such as budget and long-term care. • Getting help with daily life such as shopping, transportation, and doctor visits. • Getting emotional support when your spouse or partner dies or you become ill. Cons • If you didn't get along with your children when they were young adults, moving near them usually doesn't make it better. You may have to face the fact that your children may not want you to be that close.

• Your kids may move somewhere else because of a great job opportunity or better education for their kids. • You may end up doing more babysitting than you want. • If your kids live in different places in the country, who do you move near? • Location, weather and cost-of-living may not be what you like. It may be the best move of your life, but before you pack up and move near your kids, make sure it's something you think has a good chance of working out.

turned those assumptions on their head creating prolonged unemployment for millions, repeated layoffs and home foreclosures. The statistics for older jobless workers paint a dismal picture. Those aged 55 and older were unemployed for about 51 weeks as of November

2013, about three months longer than their younger counterparts, according to AARP. And when older workers do land a new job, it’s often for less money. The families in Set for Life also face health problems (several lack health insurance) and the specter of losing their homes. Adding to the pain, Congress let extended unemployment benefits lapse at the end of 2013, affecting about 1.3 million job seekers, according to AARP. AARP is pressing for a restoration of those benefits through 2014 and an emergency three-month extension has been proposed. It remains unclear if that will pass in Congress.

Older Unemployed Face a Tough Road

The hour-long program tracks several primary breadwinners who have lost their jobs, the effect that has on their families and their efforts to land a new one. The program catalogs the dismantling of the American Dream – an informal compact that assured workers of relative job stability, health care, and the opportunity to own an affordable home.

Three Foods to Avoid If You Want to Lose Weight

By Jason Alderman power of attorney to make their financial decisions, and millions of others – including younger disabled adults – have courtappointed guardians or other fiduciaries. "In order to protect our seniors, we must educate the caregiver generation," he explains. Sometimes that means learning more about the financial products and services available to seniors to help them make informed choices. But often, it's the caregivers themselves who must make critical decisions – whether they've got power of attorney for a parent with Alzheimer's or have been tapped to manage Social Security benefits for a disabled friend. The CFPB guides are geared toward people in four different fiduciary capacities: • Someone has granted you "power of attorney" to make money and property decisions on his or her behalf. • "Court-appointed guardian," where a court appoints

It's more like "inspiring an overwhelming feeling of fear." (Thank you, Dictionary.com.) In recognition that millions of Americans act as fiduciaries (i.e., manage money or property) for loved ones, often with no formal training or expertise, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has created four, easy-to-understand caregiver guides called "Managing Someone Else's Money" (at www.consumerfinance.gov.)

Losing weight is in large part about avoiding unhealthy foods. You can work out as hard as you want, but if you’re replacing those burnt calories with unhealthy foods, chemicals and extra fats, you’re probably not going to see much in terms of results. Here are 3 foods to avoid if you want to lose weight. Anything Microwavable Anything that’s frozen or designed to be microwaved should be avoided. The level of fats, sodium and sugars are extremely high. Many TV dinners that people eat in one meal on their own are actually three or more servings – meaning you’re getting much, much more fat than you think if you just skimmed the in-

gredients. High Calorie Drinks Drinks are one of the biggest sources of sugar and extraneous sugars in the standard American diet. A lot of people just don’t realize how much fat is in these various beverages. Another common offender is caffeine. Coffee

itself has very few calories. However, once you add in the milk or cream plus the sugar, it suddenly becomes a high calorie drink. Processed Meats Finally, processed meats are also poor choices if you want to lose weight. It’s no mystery if you look at what really goes into processed meats. It’s often the fattiest parts, blended skin, various body parts that couldn’t be sold separately, all mixed with copious amounts of fat. In addition, these processed meats are usually full of preservatives, chemicals and sodium. Stick to lean, whole meats and avoid processed meats. You’ll consume fewer calories and you’ll be eating healthier overall as well.

and can cause constriction of airways. For people with asthma, this can be a dangerous problem. • Wind and rain. Rainfall can increase and stir up mold spores, and wind can blow around pollen and mold. • Heat. In the summer months, increased ozone from smog, exhaust fumes, and pollutants tend to be higher and can trigger asthma symptoms. • Lightning. Thunder-

storms, which can generate ozone, are now thought of as an asthma trigger. Managing Weather-Related Triggers Managing the symptoms of weather-related asthma is similar to managing asthma that is triggered by any cause, like pet dander. Whether the trigger is heat, pollen, or a fierce rainstorm, the best way to avoid climate-connected asthma is to first identify what your triggers are. Just as you would with other triggers of asthma, avoid these triggers and control your exposure. Specific weather triggers will vary from individual to individual. If lightning storms tend to set off your asthma attacks, then stay inside. If cold air is your trigger, use Albuterol before going out in the cold and wear a face mask or scarf over your face. If your asthma tends ASTHMA, See page 12A

How to Control Winter-Related Asthma

Certain weather conditions, from extreme heat to extreme cold, from rain to thunderstorms, can prompt an asthma attack. But there are ways to manage a weather-related asthma trigger so your asthma symptoms don’t kick in. For some people with asthma, a change in weather conditions can be trigger symptoms. While environmental allergens and pollutants such as animal dander, smoke, and pollen are common factors that can aggravate asthma, weather can also play a role. Cold air, humidity, and even thunderstorms are known asthma triggers. Your Asthma Weather Report Common weather triggers that can aggravate asthma symptoms include: • Cold air. Frigid temperatures can be an asthma trigger. Cold air seems to predispose people with asthma to have more symptoms

Shingles May Raise Later Stroke, Heart Attack Risk

Having shingles is associated with a higher risk of stroke and heart attack later in life, a new study shows. Researchers from University College London found that having shingles before age 40 is associated with a 74 percent higher risk of stroke, a 50 percent higher risk of heart attack, and a 2.4 times higher risk of transient ischemic attack (a warning sign for stroke). Heart attack risk was also higher for people who had shingles after age 40 (though not as high as for those under age 40). People who had shingles after age 40 had a 15 percent higher risk of transient ischemic attack and 10 percent higher risk of heart attack. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox -- varicellazoster -- and triggers rash symptoms. The study, published in the journal Neurology, is based on data from 106,600 people who had shingles and 213,200 people who never had shingles. It is possible to be vaccinated against shingles; however, researchers noted that more research is needed to determine if receiving a shingles vaccine can decrease risk of stroke and heart attack.

Meet the Bed of the Future Your Gmail is About to Get Even Less Private

LAS VEGAS -- When you think of mattress technology, you probably think of springs and stuffing, not sensors and voice recognition. Sleep Number, the company that makes mattresses with adjustable firmness, is trying to change that. At the International Consumer Electronics Show on Tuesday, Sleep Number unveiled the x12, a mattress that not only has built-in sensors that track how well you and your partner sleep, but also can respond to voice commands, do something about your partner's awful snoring and give you a massage. The x12, which goes on sale in some markets next month and throughout the U.S. later this year, features some of the biggest themes at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, such as embedded sensors that track your movement and give biofeedback, and so-called “smart devices" -everyday household objects like TVs and appliances that connect to a network. SleepIQ technology, as the company calls it, monitors movement in the bed as well as average breathing rate and heart rate to determine how well you and your partner sleep. People who have mattresses with SleepIQ can use an accompanying app or website to keep track of any number of things that may affect sleep, such as

diet, exercise, caffeine or having a sick child. Based on the biometric information, the bed will give you a sleep score and recommend different firmness and support settings to help improve sleep. “It will help you know better sleep by communicating how you slept the night before and what affected your sleep,” Shelly Ibach, president and CEO of Sleep Number, said at a press conference. “And tell you straight up: Here’s a good night’s sleep, here’s a better night’s sleep and here’s an awesome night’s sleep.” The x12, which starts at a whopping $7,999 for a queen-sized mattress, also has a feature that is sure to appeal to many: If your partner is snoring, you can use a voice command to raise his or her head, which can help stop the snoring. (Or you could, of course, just give him or her an affectionate nudge.) Other features of the

many, many of them will tell you how many calories you've burned. But there's also one that wants to keep you from getting burned.

bed include the ability to elevate each side of the bed independently and voiceactivated lights on each side that will help light your way in the middle of the night. A bed that tracks your every move raises the question: What about those intimate moments that you probably don’t want recorded? Sleep Number says there’s a privacy button that will turn off Sleep IQ. Sleep Number is hoping to cash in on the growing trend of sleep tracking, much of which is done at this point with smartphone apps or wrist-worn products, such as Fitbit Flex and Jawbone UP. With a price range of $7,999 to $15,399 (for an upholstered bed, side panel and nightstands), the x12 is far from affordable for most people, though Sleep Number does have plans later this year to introduce mattresses with SleepIQ technology that start at $999.

This Bracelet has One Very Special Power

The Netatmo June is a piece of jewelry with a UV sensor. June, by Paris-based company Netatmo, is a piece of jewelry with a sensor that detects UV rays and provides you with information -- in real time on your iPhone -- about how much sun you've been exposed to. The accompanying app will calculate, based on your skin type and that day's UV index, how much time you should spend in the sun, and warn you when you've been outside for too long. (This, it should be noted, is not without controversy.) June is unlike much of the wearable technology being shown off here for a couple of reasons. It's meant to look like a piece of jewelry rather than a gadget. It was designed by Camille Toupet, who has collaborated with Louis Vuitton and Cartier. And it's being marketed directly to women. "It will help women to better protect themselves against premature skin aging and sunburn," said Annika Beck, Netatmo's international marketing manager. "I think it opens doors for women to the world of connected objects." June, which costs $99, can be worn either as a bracelet or as a brooch. It will go on sale during the second quarter of the year.

By Alexis Kleinman If you're a Gmail user, you probably also have a Google+ account. Until now, that likely meant nothing to you. However, with a new Gmail update, random people on Google+ will be able to send emails to your Gmail account without you ever having given them your email address, according to a new post on the Official Gmail Blog. These messages from strangers will arrive in your Gmail inbox just like emails, but the stranger won't know your email address unless you respond. "Your email address isn't visible to a Google+ connection unless you send that person an email, and likewise, that person’s email address isn’t visible to you unless they send you an email," Google explains.

If you fear new people or believe that you're important enough that your inbox will get flooded once the new feature arrives, Google is offering an easy way to opt out. You'll have the option to limit who who can email you through your Google+ profile to "extended circles," "circles" or "no one".

Don't worry, though. Google says it will email you with a direct link to that setting once the changes go into effect. Sure, strangers may be invading your inbox, but Google's been selling your email data to advertisers this whole time. It's up to you to decide which is scarier.

LAS VEGAS -- It doesn't matter whether you give your iPhone a light tap or a hard press. Your phone responds the same, either way. But what if it didn't? Canopy, a Minneapolisbased startup, thinks touch screens limit how we interact with our smartphones. And at the International Consumer Electronics Show here, the company debuted the latest version of Sensus, an iPhone case that transforms the back and sides of your phone into large, pressure-sensitive touch pads. This, Canopy says, has two advantages: It allows people to use their phones without touching the screen, increasing the viewable area (great for playing games). It also lets people use varying pressure to get different responses from apps and games. "It's a whole new dimension to applications that isn't currently available on anything," Ian Spinelli, the marketing coordinator for Canopy, said in an interview. Spinelli demonstrated

the pressure-sensitive features by using the back of his iPhone as a scale to weigh a bottle. He also took a selfie (of course!) by squeezing the sides of case. The developer version of Sensus weighs 1.4 ounces and looks like a robust protective case, albeit one with sensor-laden pads on the sides and back. (The company says the final version will weigh an ounce.) It plugs into your iPhone's Lightning connector. Spinelli said it uses less battery power than Bluetooth Smart, the latest and low-energy version of Bluetooth.

For now, only three apps are compatible with Sensus. But Spinelli said Sensus is working with many third-party apps, including "prominent" ones "that you've definitely heard of." You can imagine what pressure-sensitive controls could do for Snapchat, the incredibly popular app that allows you to draw on photos or video, or for a mapping app like Google maps. For now, Sensus, which costs $99 and will be available this summer, will only work with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.

This Case Might Change How You Use Your iPhone

Meet the Tennis Racket of the Future

LAS VEGAS -- Meet the latest in tennis technology. Babolat, the French racket maker, showed off its sensor-laden, connected tennis racket at the International CES here this week. The racket, which is a version of its best-selling Pure Drive, has gyroscopes, accelerometers and a piezoelectric sensor in the handle. These sensors pick up a variety of data, including where the ball hits the strings, how much power goes into a shot and how much spin a player puts on a ball. The new Pure Drive Play syncs to a smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth or USB, and presents the data in an accompanying app. The idea, said Thomas Otton, Babolat's global communications manager, is that the more information players have about their game, the more they will improve.

The Babolat Play Pure Drive has sensors in the handle and syncs to a smartphone app. "Today, a tennis player has no information -- only sensations," he said. "Now, all the necessary information -- you will have." Babolat spent a decade developing the racket. It costs $399, $189 more than the Pure Drive, which does not have the sensors. The connected racket, which weighs the same as the Pure Drive, has a power button on the handle. The battery lasts six to eight hours before it needs

to be charged via USB. In case you're wondering -- as of the first of the year -- the racket is actually legal for use in professional games, according to the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the sport's governing body. A player, however, cannot look at the data during a match. The theme of connected "smart" objects, everyday items outfitted to collect data, is dominating this year's CES. In a recent report, Gartner, the technology research firm, said that this so-called "internet of things" will grow to 26 billion units in 2020, up from just .9 billion in 2009. “All rackets will be connected," said Otton. “Kids -– in five, 10 years –- they will be looking for the blue [power] button, and if they don’t find the button, [they’ll say] ‘hey, this is useless.’”

Change Comes When Change is Demanded

King’s True Legacy Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. This month will mark the 85th birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Across the nation and throughout the world community, millions of people will pay tribute and celebrate the birth of one our greatest freedom fighters and most effective leaders. The legacy of Dr. King is more than a federal holiday although we should never forget the protracted but successful struggle that was required to get that holiday recognition signed into law. The legacy of Dr. King is more than a tall magnificent statue that now stands on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. King’s legacy is also more than a faint remembrance of the past sacrifices and victories of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. The living legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. should be a legacy of present-day continuing the good fight for freedom, justice, equality and economic empowerment in America, Africa and everywhere in the world. Yes, today that is a big order and a tremendous challenge. As a young, statewide youth organizer from 1963 to 1968 for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in my home state of North Carolina, I witnessed first hand the incredible genius

and courage of Dr. King. I also remember his militant band of preachers, community organizers and student leaders who had become impatient with the status quo of systematic racial injustice in the United States. Golden Frinks, the N.C. state field secretary of SCLC recruited and introduced me to Dr. King and SCLC. Working with Dr. King changed my life for the better. Today, my purpose is simply to apply what I believe is the living legacy of Dr. King to some of the most pressing issues that oppressed people face nationally and internationally. Remember when Dr. King spoke out against the atrocities of the Vietnam War in 1967, there were many in the African American community who could not readily make the connection that saw between the issues of racial and economic oppression in the United States and the issues of war and peace in southeast Asia. One of Dr. King’s famous quotes was, “An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” It was only after Dr. King’s tragic assassination in 1968 that many shared his opposition to the Vietnam War. Martin Luther King Jr. would not have supported

the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact, there should be much louder voices now concerning the post-colonial devastating wars and violence in the Sudan, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Somalia, and in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo where millions have died. There is just too much public silence about these and other global violent conflicts. Dr. King’s commitment to nonviolence was non-negotiable. Africans and African Americans as well as all people must strive to settle differences and disputes without engaging in selfdestructive violence. This in part is what I mean when I use the phrase “living legacy” of Martin Luther King. Gun violence is down somewhat now in Chicago, but it is still too high. Gun violence is rising in Detroit, Washington, D.C. and in Philadelphia. SCLC, NAACP, National Urban League, National Rainbow Coalition, and the National Action Network should take on the National Rifle Association KING, See page 12A

on engaging “maximum feasible participation” in poor neighborhoods, so that recipients of aid could express their needs and create their own strategies. Johnson’s program was an institutional response, enlisting the resources and the capacities of the federal government to address poverty and racial division. But we should remember, as we head to the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday, what Johnson was responding to. He wasn’t simply reacting to entrenched poverty and racial segregation; those were not new. Johnson’s program was the government’s response to the call issued by Dr. Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement. At the March on Washington for Jobs and Justice, Dr. King issued his dream. From his cell in Birmingham, he issued his moral challenge. In his 1964 State of the Union and his later address at the University of Michigan, President Johnson issued his response. This is important in today’s debate. Many comment on how timid our politics are now, how tied into knots, even as poverty is getting worse and the middle class is struggling. The economy is rigged to

benefit only the few, while most Americans struggle to stay afloat. Yet there is little response from Washington. Affordable health care is essential, but reform has been met with unrelenting hostility. The Republican majority in the House has forced cuts in food stamps, dropped children from Head Start, cut aid to poor schools and even rejected continuing emergency jobless benefits. Rather than a war on poverty, they seem intent on waging a war on the poor. But focus on the inadequacy of the response ignores the other missing factor: the inadequacy of the call. The poor are only beginning to find their voice, as witnessed in the protests of fast food workers. The movement for justice has only begun to stir, with voters forcing increases in the minimum wage in states and localities. Those who benefit from the current arrangements will not lead the change. Political reformers face implacable, and wellfunded, opposition. What is needed is for citizens of CHANGE, See page 12A

Marian Wright Edelman and 17-year-olds like adult criminals. The bad news is that Judge Polier’s home state, New York, is one of them. North Carolina is the other. It’s time for change. Our society takes adolescent brain development into account in many ways and takes steps to protect children and youths. We don’t allow youths to do certain things because we say they are not mature enough to fully appreciate the consequences of their actions. Young people can’t see certain movies without an adult until their 17th birthdays and can’t see others at all until they turn 18. They can’t buy alcohol until their 21st birthdays. In New York, young people can’t get a tattoo under age 18. The New York City Council recently voted to raise the legal age of buying tobacco products and electronic cigarettes from 18 to 21. Yet, there is a double standard; the day a young person turns 16 in New York, they are automatically treated as adults in the criminal justice system when charged with a crime. This means a 16-year-old can be arrested and spend a night or more in jail locked up with older adults without his or her parent or guardian ever

The 50th anniversary of Lyndon Johnson’s declaration of a war on poverty brought long overdue attention to his commitment. Today, with one in five children in America still raised in poverty, an accounting is vital as part of a renewed commitment. But largely absent from the debate around the war on poverty is any sense of its context. Johnson’s program was bold and courageous. Medicare and expanded Social Security dramatically reduced poverty among the elderly and the disabled. Food stamps and infant nutrition virtually erased malnutrition among children. Medicaid and hikes in the minimum wage helped lift the floor under the working poor. Head start, aid to schools in impoverished neighborhoods, and later Pell grants contributed directly to rising high school and college graduation rates. The Jobs Corps provided training and jobs for the unemployed, with a particular emphasis on Appalachia and rural poverty. The National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities and National Public Radio nourished minds as well. Most creative was the Office of Economic Opportunity, situated in the White House itself, and focused

Beyond the Rhetoric:

Funneling Children into the Adult Criminal Justice System Children are not little adults. Adolescents are not the same as adults. We’ve known this for years. The research showing that their brains are still developing is clear. Although young people act on impulse, they have the ability to positively change and have a productive future. That’s why it’s outrageous that in the 21st century we still ignore the consequences of automatically funneling children into the adult criminal justice system against so much research on youth development and juvenile justice best practices. It’s bad for public safety and it’s bad for the youths and their families. One of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF)’s earliest research projects was its 1976 report titled, Children in Adult Jails, documenting the inhumane, ineffective practice of treating children like adult criminals and housing them side by side in the same prisons. Some states had already begun abolishing this harmful practice decades earlier but others were resisting change or dragging their feet. Nearly 40 years later, the good news is that there are only two states left that automatically treat all 16-

knowing. A young person can spend five years incarcerated alongside adults before they are old enough to buy a beer. And even younger children – some as young as 13 years old – can be treated as adults in New York State’s criminal justice system when charged with murder or other serious or violent offenses and assumed to be criminally responsible, and automatically prosecuted as an adult before they’ve entered high school, although they are not detained in adult facilities until 16 or in some cases 21. Charging children and youths as adults and incarcerating them with adults is the opposite of an effective intervention that helps young people turn their lives around and decreases crime. It makes our communities less safe. Youths processed in adult criminal justice systems are rearrested and reincarcerated at higher rates than youths processed in the juvenile justice system. Eighty percent of youths released from adult prison CHILDREN, See page 12A

This is in response to a recent article by Congressman Charlie Rangel entitled “We Ain’t Broke”. It wasn’t the first time that incendiary campaignstyle rhetoric attempted such a bold masquerade as public policy prescription. Nor was it the first instance of extensive “economic data” being manufactured out of proverbial “whole cloth.” This IS Washington, after all. Neither is it rare for a Congressional staffer to pen a piece in his boss’s name. And, certainly, America’s oil and gas industry – daily derided as “Big Oil” – couldn’t have been shocked to once again find itself maligned in the furtherance of some political operative’s ideological agenda. Nope. The only surprise inherent in, “We Ain’t Broke,” the error-riddled oil industry hit-piece that recently ran in some papers, was the caliber of the elected official to whom it was attributed: the esteemed Charlie Rangel. Few in Washington can lay claim to a public service career that rivals Charlie Rangel’s. A combat-wounded Korean War veteran, Charlie Rangel earned a law degree, counseled pioneering civil rights activists, marched

on Selma, was appointed Assistant U.S. Attorney under Bobby Kennedy, challenged a well-known and powerful incumbent and won election to Congress with a bipartisan 88 percent of the vote – and, once there – became a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus. All this before his 32nd birthday. Charlie Rangel is now the third-longest currently serving member of the U.S. House of Representatives, having devoted 43 consecutive years of his life to his constituents’ concerns. He is universally regarded as smart, charming, and likeable. And, with a seat on the powerful Ways and Means Committee since 1975 – chairing or serving as the ranking member for nearly 14 years – as well as experience at the helm of the Joint Committee on Taxation, Charlie Rangel is also a bona fide authority on the Federal budget, a man thoroughly versed in even the most intricate details of U.S. tax-code minutia. Which is why it was impossible to reconcile the man with the article to which his name was affixed. If the congressional staffer responsible for writing the piece in Congressman Rangel’s name

still has a job – and in this market, he should count himself fortunate for it – a crash-course in economics and current tax law is definitely in order. Especially considering that 2014 will feature a long anticipated overhaul of America’s bloated, arbitrarily punitive, and counter-productive corporate tax laws. A good place to start would be the New York Times and its feature earlier in the year on corporate taxes. Utilizing data from the Standard & Poor’s Capital IQ, the Times plotted the total effective tax rate – local, state, federal and international combined, after credits and deductions – of companies on the S&P’s 500 index from 2007 to 2012. While the data demonstrate a 29.1 percent effective rate for the S&P index as a whole, the average tax rate for the energy industry – “Big Oil,” in Rangel staffer parlance – came in significantly higher, at 37 percent. Of course, America’s three largest energy firms – Exxon Mobil, Chevron, TAX, See page 10B

BUFFETT From page 1A It was a play-off day to remember and had many already looking forward to the Super Bowl. Not everybody is thinking about football. Today, Warren Buffett had tongues wagging about basketball. The billionaire, who ranks 4th on Forbes list of top billionaires, with an estimated worth of $53 billion, wants to make you an offer: he’ll give you $1 billion for a perfect March Madness bracket. Nope, that’s not a typo. Buffett, together with his company, Berkshire Hathaway, are offering $1 billion to any person who can correctly pick the winners of all 63 games in this year’s NCAA men’s college basketball tournament. Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway are partnering with Quicken Loans, owned by fellow billionaire Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, to offer the ‘Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket.’ Gilbert is listed at #384 of Forbes’ list of billionaires with an estimated net worth of $3.9 billion. It’s a pretty safe bet to say that they’re good for it. But are you up for the challenge? The odds of winning are said to be one in 4,294,967,296. That feels about right, considering that it’s all I can do to make it past the first round with my final four teams still intact. Don’t worry if you don’t have the chops to pick a perfect bracket. Quicken will still award a whopping $100,000 each to the 20 most accurate “imperfect” brackets for use in buying, refinancing or remodeling a home. It’s enough to make you start reading ESPN every day, right? I have to think they’re already salivating at the notion. The network’s tweet earlier today about the contest has been retweeted over 38,000 times: The details are as follows: pick all of the correct winners and win. If there is more than one winner (statistically, that’s nearly unfathomable), you’ll share the $1 billion prize. The $1 billion will be paid in 40 annual installments of $25 million. Or if you don’t want to wait around that long, you can claim a lump sum payment of just half: $500 million. There’s nothing to it to enter. No fee. In fact, it’s so simple, joked Buffett, throwing in a reference to a Geico commercial, “To quote a commercial from one of my companies, I’d dare say it’s so easy to enter that even a caveman can do it.” You can enter the contest at any time beginning Monday, March 3rd, 2014 through Wednesday, March 19th, 2014. Brackets will be made available on Selection Sunday, March 16, 2014, and will initially be limited to 10 million entrants, but only one per household. For more information, you can check out the Quicken Loans page on Facebook. What happens if you actually win the $1 billion? That’s more than 68 miles of cash in stacked one dollar bills. Let that sink in for a minute. If you win, you will owe IRS almost $400,000,000 in federal income tax.

His writings are timeless and still resonate today. Martin Luther King Jr was renowned for his simple and powerful oratory. His sentiments echoed the desire of so many and have become near universal beliefs. KINDERGARTEN From page 5A Advocates say publicly funded full-day kindergarten programs help the youngest students build a strong foundation for the rest of their learning. And while prekindergarten has received significant attention in recent years, including President Barack Obama’s proposal for universal preschool, some argue that full-day kindergarten is also vital. (The president’s plan would encourage states to expand full-day kindergarten once preschool is available to 4-year-olds from low- and moderate-income households.) Some research has shown that attendance in full-day (as opposed to part-day) kindergarten is linked to higher levels of early reading skills, although the impact may not last beyond kindergarten. Some studies also show a correlation between fullday kindergarten and improved math skills. Other research, however, suggests the impact of full-day kindergarten compared to part-day is minimal. CHILDFUND From page 5A child’s potential remains out of reach. A child’s earliest years are the most important. During this sensitive time, the foundations for a child’s future development are laid, and disruptions have lifelong consequences. Children’s experience of poverty differs from that of adults, and that experience changes as they grow from infancy to childhood to adolescence and young adulthood. We know that at every age, children have unique gifts to offer their communities. Locally owned change is the most sustainable. When community members join hands to create an environment where children can thrive, children do. ChildFund has mobilized a global network of relationships linking children, sponsors, parents, teachers, community members, community leaders, local organizations, schools, local and national governments, foundations, corporations and more. What ChildFund doesn’t know is how many children it has helped. That is because so many of the children who have been helped have gone on to help many others. For example, Monica, once a sponsored child in Ecuador, earned a degree in finance and now manages her community’s credit union and helps many families. Thanks to wonderful supporters, these sponsored children grew up to change more children’s lives. WATERS From page 6A sure you are aware of breast cancer risk factors, doing monthly breast self-exams, and getting regular mammograms to detect breast cancer in its earliest and

most treatable stages.” Congresswoman Waters’ advocacy on health care issues, and her willingness to challenge the health insurance companies, started nearly four decades ago. In 1978, then a California Assemblywoman – Waters fought insurance companies when she introduced AB 3548, legislation requiring insurance companies to cover reconstructive surgery or prosthetic devices for women who have undergone mastectomies. Waters’ legislation passed both chambers of the California Legislature and was signed into law in September of that year. In Congress, she continues to serve as an effective advocate on breast cancer and other women’s health issues. “According to the Centers for Disease Control, breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer and the second most common cause of cancer deaths in American women,” said Congresswoman Waters. “By continuing to support organizations like Life Worth Saving, together we can all help do our part in reducing the incidence of breast cancer by speaking with family members, friends, and loved ones about risk factors, education and prevention.” LEE From page 6A and our cities, and while the USPS continues to grapple with financial woes, it must not resort to selling off historic properties without complying with federal historic preservation laws. Based on the legislative language included in the omnibus bills, I expect the USPS to immediately halt all pending sales.” MAN From page 7A the physical description given by a witness, Love was put in a lineup and identified as the shooter. That was the prosecution’s only evidence. A jury in Third Judicial Circuit Court convicted Love of first-degree murder and assault in 1982, but Love worked to get his case overturned. Years later an attorney discovered the prosecution withheld evidence that someone else had confessed to the crime. ‘’I don’t have the words to say how I feel,’’ Love told The Detroit News in 2001. He was eventually released in 1998 after the case was thrown out in 1997, but prosecutors filed a new case that wasn’t dismissed until four years later. ‘’It’s been a nightmare. I guess I can start living my life now.’’ He was free for 16 years before he died. BOYD From page 7A Connecticut, becoming the school’s first African-American woman to receive a masters degree in mechanical engineering in 1979. She said she has no qualms with the language in the contract. “I do live alone, so it was not problematic for me,” she said. Boyd’s contract duration is for two years, after which the university’s board of trustees have the option to decide whether they’d like to extend the agreement for another two years or not. PARENTS From page 7A The Loudoun County’s Sheriff office said in March that the shooter fired a warning shot and verbally warned Gordley before firing. Wilder has said that Gourdley walked past him and was headed towards the bedroom where Wilder’s girlfriend was sleeping. DREAM From page 8A and how payments are applied. Servicers cannot begin foreclosure proceedings until after 120 days of delinquency, giving borrowers time to apply for loan modifications before initiating a foreclosure process. A new web-based resource by the Center for Responsible Lending brings together fact sheets on the new rules, related analysis and testimony.

GUIDE From page 9A property carefully. This includes paying bills on time, protecting unspent funds, investing carefully, and maintaining a list of all monies, properties and debts. • Keep your money and property separate. This means paying the person’s expenses from his or her own funds, and avoiding joint accounts. • Maintain good records: Keep detailed lists of money received or spent on the person’s behalf, avoid paying in cash in order to have a record of purchases, and keep all receipts. The guides walk caregivers through their fiduciary responsibilities and provide practical money-management ideas, such as what sorts of records you should keep, how to interact with banks and other professionals on their behalf, and suggestions for avoiding conflicts with family members and friends who disagree with your actions. They also provide tips for spotting financial exploitation and avoiding scams. As Cordray notes, seniors “make attractive targets because they often have tangible household wealth – whether it is in retirement savings or home equity – but they may be isolated or lonely or otherwise susceptible to being influenced by a predator in disguise.” Bottom line: Fiduciaries must be trustworthy, honest and act in good faith. If you don’t meet these standards you could be removed from the position, sued, forced to repay ill-spent money or possibly even jailed. That’s why it’s important to make sure you’re qualified before accepting the responsibility of watching over someone’s finances. ASTHMA From page 9A to worsen in hot summer months, use an air conditioner and try to stay in a controlled environment. To stay on top of weather changes, monitor the weather forecasts — consider signing up for email and text updates from online services. Beyond temperature changes, watch the forecast for rain, humidity, air pressure changes, and ozone reports. Another effective way to control weather-triggered asthma is by taking your prescribed asthma medications. Regular use of controller meds is an important part of managing asthma. While it’s not possible to control the weather, you can take steps to limit asthma attacks. Identify your weather triggers, then do what you can to protect yourself from the elements. KING From page 11A (NRA) and its policies to proliferate gun sales in America. Support of universal health care and the Affordable Care Act should be viewed as a fundamental aspect of the living legacy of King. We are most affected by the absence of health care delivery to our families and communities. Yet, in too many of our communities there still appears to a slow response to the Affordable Care Act. Dr. King new the importance of education at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s). King’s legacy demands more financial support for all HBCUs. We must also meet the challenge of curbing drop-out rates and the failures of the secondary school systems of education with respect to our communities. Lastly, Martin Luther King’s concept of “the Beloved Community” involved economic equality and development as a means of eliminating poverty. We should be encouraging the rise and training of a new young generation of entrepreneurs. If we want more jobs, then we have to have more businesses and employers who emerge from the communities that live in and serve. Yes, the National Holiday for Dr. King is about remembrance and celebration. But it should also be about living the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. everywhere people are crying out for a better life through freedom, justice and equality and economic empowerment. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr. is president of Education Online

Services Corporation and the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network and can be reached at: http://drbenjaminfchavisjr.wix. com/drbfc. CHILDREN From page 11A reoffend for more serious crimes. Incarcerating youths in adult jails puts them directly in harm’s way. They suffer increased rates of physical and sexual abuse and high rates of suicide. Youths in adult facilities are 36 times more likely to commit suicide while incarcerated than those in juvenile facilities. They also are often subject to solitary confinement like adults – 16- and 17-year-olds sitting in isolation 23 hours a day, for days, weeks, and months at a time. This is cruel and unusual punishment. Like so many policies in our nation’s criminal justice system, youth of color are disproportionately affected and treated as adults. A Black boy born in 2001 has a one in three chance of going to prison in his lifetime and a Latino boy a one in six chance of the same fate. The repercussions of treating youths as adults in the criminal justice system affect communities when young people returning home are denied jobs, educational opportunities, and housing as a result of having a criminal record. Families are torn apart by the immigration consequences of criminal records including deportation. The legacy of an adult criminal record on a child, his or her family, and his or her community is long lasting. Advocates for youths in the system have helped reduce the number of children in adult jails and prisons 54 percent since 2000 and 22 percent since 2010 with commitment, hard work, and persistence. But an estimated 250,000 youths are still tried, sentenced, or incarcerated as adults each year. We must never give up on any child until we have tried every means to put them on the path to successful adulthood. Marian Wright Edelman is president of the Children’s Defense Fund whose Leave No Child Behind® mission is to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.

Build that call to a tide that cannot be turned and then, and only then, will there be a response. Dr. King led a movement that issued a stirring call for justice. Lyndon Johnson used his remarkable skills to drive an unprecedented response to that call. The prophet and the president were both remarkable leaders. We may not look on their like again. But even so, one thing is still clear: When we build the demand for change, leaders will arise to offer the response. Jesse L.

Settlement Reached in Tamera Mowry Recalls Shocking Comments ‘Blurred Lines’ Dispute About Her Interracial Marriage

By Mesfin Fekadu NEW YORK — Marvin Gaye’s children have settled claims against a music company owned by Sony over Robin Thicke’s Grammy-nominated hit song “Blurred Lines.” The Gayes had accused EMI of not pursuing a copyright infringement case against Thicke because “Blurred Lines” has similarities to Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.” A Los Angeles judge granted Nona Marvisa Gaye and Frankie Christian Gaye’s dismissal of their lawsuit against EMI, which is owned by Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Documents say the Gayes and Sony have an agreement and claims against Sony can’t be brought again. A representative for the Gaye family said the terms of the settlement were confidential. Dueling lawsuits between the Gaye family and Thicke remain active. Thicke and his collaborators T.I. and Pharrell Williams asked a federal

Cliff Beach headlines Target Sundays Black History Month Show Music Legend Has No Plans to Retire

UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. — Music legend Chuck Berry says he has no plans to retire. The 87-year-old rock 'n' roll legend will make his 200th performance at a Missouri night club where he's been performing for nearly two decades. He says he hopes to make it another 200 shows. Berry's hit songs include "Johnny B. Goode," ''Roll Over Beethoven" and "Sweet Little Sixteen." The St. Louis native has been performing at the Blueberry Hill night club in University City since 1996. Berry said in October 2012 that his singing days

Chuck Berry had passed. But he told the for each day, has no plans St. Louis Post-Dispatch that to retire and will keep going "for as long as the big performing is in his genes. He says he's thankful man upstairs allows."

Gabourey Sidibe Brushes Off Haters in the Best Possible Way

Hollywood, take note -for this is the way to deal with haters. The Internet seems to bring out the worst in people, and "American Horror Story" star Gabourey Sidibe found herself the undeserved target of cruel comments about her weight and appearance at the Golden Globe Awards. The 30-year-old actress has more than a bit of experience when it comes to the public callously discussing her weight and, as such, she's developed the perfect response that was recently posted on Twitter: To people making mean comments

Gabourey Sidibe about my GG pics, I mos def job last night. #JK cried about it on that private Ladies and gentlemen, jet on my way to my dream that is how it's done.

Berry Gordy has been privately sticking up for Oprah Winfrey in Hollywood since she was snubbed by the Golden Globes. Spies at a reception at the home of WME agent Robert Newman, who reps directors Baz Luhrmann and Robert Rodriguez, said the Motown mogul was overheard referring to “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” as “my movie,” and telling

others to support it. Winfrey was overlooked by the Globes as best supporting actress for Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts, June Squibb and Sally Hawkins. Her boosters hope the Ben Affleck factor will work as it did for him a year ago: That a diss from one awards body can make her an underdog favorite in another.

The 28th annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., birthday celebration

From page 1A released in 2014. With 20 years of teaching experience, she currently teaches history and political science at the University of La Verne, Pt. Mugu Campus. The day began with a Freedom March from Plaza Park at Fifth and “C” Streets. Community members, elected officials, and spiritual leaders assembled at the park for prayer at 8 a.m. The march began at 8:15 a.m. and proceeded to the Oxnard Performing Arts Center. The program featured youth speakers, scripture readings, and gospel music by the MLK Youth Choir. The youth choir was directed by Mary Ann Woodard, director of the after school music programs for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. Included in the MLK day was an activity created to motivate low-income and first generation middle and high school students in the Ventura County area through an educational resource fair, college readiness mini-workshops, and a community dialogue. The activity was sponsored by the CEDC, which is a private non-profit communi-

ty development corporation that provides comprehensive housing services through a community building approach in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. Exhibits, refreshments, and vendor booths were also set up in the Oxnard and Ventura Rooms of the Performing Arts Center. The Martin Luther King, Jr., Committee of Ventura County now has an online presence through its website and social media. The website address is http://www.mlkventuracounty. com. The Facebook page can be found under the heading “Martin Luther King, Jr., Committee of Ventura County.” The Committee’s Twitter address is www. twitter.com/MLKventura. From its inception in 1986, the MLK observance program has attempted to spotlight the positive achievements and accomplishments of the youth of our community. In previous years, the Monday program has drawn approximately 800 people from throughout Ventura County and Santa Barbara. It was necessary to cancel the program only once, on January 17, 1994, due to an earthquake.

As in previous years, this year’s program was an inspirational, informative and enjoyable experience. See page 15A

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that the Consumer and Environmental Protection Unit has filed and settled a civil unlawful trade practices case against Aquakleen Products, Inc., and its president, Ross Allen Levine. Aquakleen Products, Inc., marketed and sold water treatment devices through doorto-door solicitations that primarily targeted Spanishspeaking consumers. The complaint alleges that defendants' sales representatives "spiked" over 150 sales by installing the $5,000 devices in residences throughout Ventura County before the required three-day "cooling-off' period had expired. This tactic tends to discourage a customer from exercising the right of cancellation available for such sales because, once the fixture is installed, the consumer believes he or she has no option but to keep it. The complaint also alleges that the defendants engaged in false advertising and misrepresented the water quality of its consumers. Without admitting liability, the defendants stipulated to entry of judgment signed by Judge Mark Borrell. The defendants, who cooperated with the investigation, will be bound by a permanent injunction prohibiting fraudulent and unlawful practices and will be required to obtain building permits for every system they installed in Ventura County. They will also be required to repair building code deficiencies discovered by inspections and pay restitution of over $40,000 and civil penalties and costs of $62,000.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On January 14, Oxnard Police Officers responded to a call of a carjacking in the 2500 Block of Vineyard Avenue. Once on scene, officers learned that the victim was seated in his vehicle (Blue ’97 Volvo 4Dr, 6RQS103), when he was confronted by the suspect. The suspect indicated he had a handgun and wanted the vehicle. The suspect eventually took control of the vehicle and drove away in an unknown direction, possibly towards Thousand Oaks. If anyone has information about this incident, they are encouraged to call the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7740. If you wish to remain anonymous you may call the Violent Crimes Hotline at (805) 982-7070 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.

Pastors and Community Leaders Unite to Honor the Dream

Oxnard, CA – On January 19, pastors, churches choirs and praise teams gathered at Bethel A.M.E., located at 855 S. ‘F’ Street, to honor and celebrate the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Speakers at the service included Pastor Robert Cox, Bethel A.M.E. Church; Pastor Lonnie McCowan, Miracle Center Ventura; Bishop Princeton Allen, Ephraim and Manesseh Worship Center; Pastor Lawrence Droughn, Camarillo First Church of God in Christ; Pastor Ken Johnson, Eternal Life Christian Center; and Pastor Michael Mc-

Curtis, Total Life Christian Center. The pastors felt it was important to honor Dr. King as a pastor for his love, vision and insight he displayed as a pastor on the cutting edge. Dr. King was an example of a giving pastor shining the light for those in darkness, being a voice for those who had no voice. The special service was concluded by the awarding of several influential members in the community including Byron Ward, Don Montgomery, John R. Hatcher, III, Chief Jeri Williams, Fire Chief

James Williams, Librarian Barbara Murray, City Manager Karen Burnham, and Peggy Hunt, Publisher of the Tri-County Sentry Newspaper. All proceeds from the event went to benefit Pinkard Innovative Enterprises, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to expose African American students in Ventura County to Historically Black Colleges and Universities who offer them alternative educational opportunities outside of the traditional colleges and provide African-American role models in higher education institutions.

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.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of BARBARA O’HAGAN. A Petition for Probate has been filed by JOYCE PLAYFAIR in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that STUART JACOBSON (A LICENSED PRIVATE PROFESSIONAL FIDUCIARY) be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval.

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.

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 $652,266.62 (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.

NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE TS No. 130009187 Title Order No. 13-0028513 APN No. 083-0-220-605 YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST, DATED 09/18/2006. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by MATTHEW A. LINN AND KARA MARUOKA-

LINN, HUSBAND AND WIFE, dated 09/18/2006 and recorded 9/22/2006, as Instrument No. 20060922-00200342-0, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Ventura County, State of California, will sell on 02/13/2014 at 9:00AM, Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor Resort 1050 Schooner Drive, Ventura, CA 93001 Grand Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1037 MCHUGH COURT, VENTURA, CA, 93003. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $449,784.01. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks 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 Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ‘’AS IS’’ condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 a 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 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 1-800281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www. recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case 13-0009187. 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.

(This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. 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. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: 02/05/2014 at Time: 9:00 am in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E.

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.

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.

If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to the return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. 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 (866) 684-2727 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.LPSASAP.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 2720008151-F00. 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.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of ANDREA RENEE DAVIS. A Petition for Probate has been filed by STEFFEN MEVIK in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that STEFFEN MEVIK be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. 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. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: February 19, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E. Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Oxnard Courthouse. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. 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. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: /S/Brian S. Dicker, Esq.

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 best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney.

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.

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 contact Priority Posting & Publishing for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit its website www.priorityposting.com for information regarding the sale of this property. 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 website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

TAX From page 11A and ConocoPhillips – paid well above even that average in their effective rates – 37, 39, and 74 percent respectively. In absolute terms, those three companies combined paid the most of any companies: $289.7 Billion, from 2007 to 2012. Again, these are findings published in the New York Times, and they describe rather a different universe than the “9.2 percent” – and the “billions in subsidies” – cited in the “Rangel” piece. Additional highly sourced economic reality can be found within the Progressive Policy Institute’s (PPI) annual “Investment Heroes” report, (http://ow.ly/ssWnz) which documents the leading role that oil and natural gas production has had on U.S. economic growth and job creation; of the $56.1 billion invested by the energy sector in 2013, eight of the top 25 companies hail from oil and gas industry. Please remember that it was our energy industry that fed our war machine during World War II while Germany and Japan literally ran out of its energy supply and had to capitulate to the Allies. Yes, our energy industry is our economic life blood as well as a key component to our national security. With a few clicks of a mouse and a brief Internet stroll, “Rangel” can feast on inexhaustible data demonstrating the oil and gas industry’s support of more than 9.2 million American jobs, (http://ow.ly/ssW7e) and its deep investment in America’s current and future economy. While his boss surely doesn’t need the education, let’s hope “Rangel” helps enlighten his Congressional colleagues with some of his newly acquired tax acumen. Maybe then we can all have confidence that corporate tax reform will augment rather than handicap America’s economic growth, her energy security, and her richest source of tax revenue.
