Correctional Peace Carib Takes Officers Work a Reparations Case Tough Beat to UK Parliament

Leaked Docs Show Spyware Used to Snoop on U.S. Computers

By Jeff Larson and Mike Tigas Special to the NNPA from ProPublica Software created by the controversial U.K. based Gamma Group International was used to spy on computers that appear to be located in the United States, the U.K., Germany, Russia, Iran and Bahrain, according to a leaked trove of documents analyzed by ProPublica. It’s not clear whether the surveillance was conducted by governments or private entities. Customer email addresses in the collection appeared to belong to a German surveillance

company, an independent consultant in Dubai, the Bosnian and Hungarian Intelligence services, a Dutch law enforcement officer and the Qatari government. The leaked files — which were posted online by hackers — are the latest in a series of revelations about how state actors including repressive regimes have used Gamma’s software to spy on dissidents, journalists and activist groups. The documents, leaked last Saturday, could not be readily verified, but experts told ProPublica they believed them to be genuine.

Around the Tri-Counties To Really be at Peace you must be OK with “Not being liked” by everyone! Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan One of the most important things I’ve learned is that Peace is Power. Our vision and success are born out of a peaceful mind. I have learned that freedom grows out from a peace-filled heart. Grace and mercy abound more in a peaceful state of being. The peace that I have today does not mean the absence of chaos and conflict. Rather it is the peace of knowing that no matter what, I will be okay. In fact, I will be better than OK — I will impeccable! Another lesson that I have learned is that peace begins on the inside and is sustained and advanced by the type of energy that I allow to surround my physical being. I have learned that it is also necessary to create, maintain and embody peace-filled energy. One way I do this is I try

my very best to keep thinking peaceful thoughts, with a peace-filled heart. I discovered that everything around me shifts and responds to the energy I bring into the room. I have worked hard through my struggles and setbacks, to remove and grow beyond the blockages, hindrances, obstructions and wounds that were present in me mentally and emotionally. Today I am free because I made the choice to be free. I found out it was my emotional and mental patterns from my past stopping me from living up to my potential. Jesus said you are the ”light of the world” not you have light you are light. A light shines. I know longer stress with the ideal of trying to save the world. That’s not my job. He is the Savior of the world. I can’t save anyone. I can only be a light and shine, so others can see where to go, so they don’t trip and fall in the dark. You and I have to protect our light. In the past I would respond to anything and everything that was going around me. I would judge my spiritual growth and spiritual condition on the amount of adverse con-

ditions I was willing to live through and with. I use to think that if I would endure certain people and put up with and forgive even the most hideous deeds of others, no matter how bad they treated me that I would be rewarded with an out pouring of God’s blessings. Now I am free from that wrong thinking. Today in my life there are some experiences I just no longer choose to have. I also accept the fact that everybody won’t like me. Everyone will not agree with me. And some people may not ever choose to see me as anything other than the perception they now hold in their mind. That is not my issue or problem. That’s their personal issue. (To really be free you must be cool with not being liked by everyone.) I can’t tell anyone what to do and how to talk or treat me but I can choose how I will participate with that person… and I chose to Release Them. Some people just want to fight you. They expect a fight. They look for a fight and if there is no fight around they will pick a fight. They want to argue and be upset. I know longer consider it a necessity to PEACE, See page 12A

Writing Your Story of Success The Mind Matters By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC We are always making up stories about ourselves. We tell stories about our lives and share stories from our past. Sometimes they are not the best stories. We may focus on our failures and disappointments. We think about what we did wrong and the mistakes we made. We repeat stories that hurt us. We think we are reporting the “truth”. We believe we are a victim or a perpetrator instead of a hero. What if you were to tell yourself a story about a perfectly successful day? What if….? And what if you continued to tell yourself such stories day after day? You’re making everything up anyway! Why not make up a happy story where you are the hero? Reality is just

a reflection of your beliefs which are a result of your thoughts. By creating a practice of thinking positive thoughts you begin to change your beliefs and as a result, your life changes and gets better. Each one of us creates our own reality by the story we tell. If your story isn’t working for you anymore because it makes you feel anxious or angry or sad, you can choose to write a new story. Perhaps you’ve realized that you’ve been living a story that others have written. Creating a new story gives you the power to feel the way you want to feel about your life. Who else can give you that power? Who is in charge of your life? I invite you to write a success story about any

Back To School Inez Knows

Inez Lanns

By Inez Lanns It is that time of the year again – it’s time to go back to school! You may be in the beginning stages and have children entering preschool or kindergarten, or you may have older children in college. Maybe you don’t have children but are an aunt, an uncle or a godparent who is active in the lives of children whom you love dearly.

Whatever the situation, most of us know someone who just went back to school or is preparing to go to school. As we prepare our children to go back to school, we shop for supplies, clothes and all the things that we believe are necessary to help prepare them to succeed. School shopping is exciting and a lot of fun for the students. It may not be as much fun for the parents footing the bill, but it gives them a sense of peace and satisfaction knowing their child will have the necessary tools to thrive in their educational environment. As much as we spend time, money and energy on making sure they have the items that they need to be equipped for school, there are some other things that we sometimes tend to forget:

1. Manners – Teach your children manners. Many of today’s children do not say “Excuse me”, “Yes, Sir”, “Yes, ma’am”, “Thank you” and the like. It may seem like they have never been taught these skills and the importance of being polite. A simple please and thank you go a long way. 2. Be On Time – Emphasize the importance of being at school, in class on time and ready to go before the final bell rings. When students are late, they disrupt the class and also miss out on important instruction. Encouraging being a few minutes early is even better. 3. Be Consistent – Setting and keeping a routine is a great skill to learn at an early age. As parents you SCHOOL, See page 12A

The People’s Throb Short, Tall, Skinny, Fat, or Muscular… Does Size Really Matter?

“I’m pretty sure it depends on the type of person doing the judging. Different people have different tastes, and what is beautiful to one person might not be to the other. In cases like this, I just like to go with one of my favorite lines, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

“I feel like it depends on a person’s choice. If they feel like they are interested in a fat, short, or tall person, then let them be happy with what they prefer, instead of downing the person.”

“No, size doesn’t matter because people all have one thing in common. They all have a choice to choose which best fits them. I prefer a tall, skinny woman, but that’s just me.”

“Size should not matter at all when describing a person. God made people different because, what would the world be like if everybody was the same?”

“No, because everybody has their own preference. No matter how you are, you should live comfortable in your skin!!”

“No, I believe that size does not matter. Humans (people) come in all shapes and sizes, and we must know and believe that we are beautiful, no matter our size. A positive self image is what’s important, as well as a healthy mind and body.”

Castaic, CA -- On Wednesday, August 13, police were called to a mobile home park where a woman was reportedly holding someone up with a gun. A SWAT team was dispatched to the area of Rolling Hills Lane and Heavenly Way around 10 a.m. Sheriff's Deputy Joshua Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Station says the woman allegedly kidnapped a man earlier, and then freed him unharmed. Nearby residents were evacuated as a precaution.

Sports News Back Pain Forces Tiger Woods McCutchen Calls Out Diamondbacks to Withdraw from Bridgestone After Getting Drilled in the Back

AKRON, Ohio — Tiger Woods was stricken with more back pain Sunday, August 3 and withdrew after eight holes at the Bridgestone Invitational. He struggled to even take off his golf shoes before being driven away to an uncertain future. In his third tournament since returning from back surgery, this had the look of a serious setback. Woods injured himself playing a shot from edge of a bunker on the par-5 second hole. With all weight on his right leg, he took an awkward slash at the ball, fell back toward the sand and landed with a thud, and kept jogging out of the bunker from sheer momentum of the steep drop. "I just jarred it, and it's been spasming ever since," Woods told a PGA Tour official before leaving. Woods kept playing, hitting a number of shockingly bad shots. He hit one into the water from the fairway on No. 3, coming up some 30 yards short of the flag. And on the par-3 fifth hole, his tee shot was 65 yards short of the hole. From a bunker left of the seventh green, he blasted out and back into the fairway and made double bogey. He grimaced at impact when he hit a 315-yard

Tiger Woods drive into the left rough on No. 9. Woods slowly stooped over with his right hand on his leg, reached toward his back and slowly bent down to remove the tee from the ground. Moments later, he stepped into a cart and headed for the parking lot. At his car, Woods could barely switch out of his golf shoes. His caddie, Joe La Cava, drove him away. "It's just the whole lower back," Woods said. "I don't know what happened." Masters champion Bubba Watson said he didn't see Woods hit the shot that hurt him on No. 2, though he could tell as the round went on that something wasn't right. "He hit some shots that we're not used to seeing Tiger hit, even when he's coming back from an inju-

ry like this," Watson said. "So obviously, something was bothering him. ... Like I told him when I shook his hand, I said, 'I'm praying for you. Hope everything turns out good. Hope to see you next week.'" With the pain he showed leaving the course — and just four months removed from back surgery — it would seem unlikely that Woods will play at Valhalla, where he won the PGA Championship in 2000. Woods is scheduled to play the opening two rounds with Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington. Mickelson was on the 11th hole — not far away from No. 9 — when he noticed Woods leaving. "It didn't look good. It looked like he was really in pain," Mickelson said. "I hope he's OK. I hope he's able to play next week. I hope it's a muscle and nothing serious because I'm really looking forward to playing with him. We rarely get paired together. "As much as I love playing with him, playing against him, trying to beat him, we all want him in the field. We all want him back. I just hope he's OK." If Woods does not play in the PGA Championship, that would be the end of his season.

Phoenix Suns Player P.J. Tucker Charged with Super Extreme DUI

P.J. Tucker Forward-guard P.J. Tucker, 29, was taken to jail and released following the incident, which took place in Scottsdale on May 10 but only came to light last week, according to a police report. Police said Tucker, considered a team leader by insiders, was returning home from the W Scottsdale Hotel when he was pulled over by police after allegedly running a stop sign. The officer said in the report that he noticed Tucker had possible signs of impairment, and that a strong alcohol smell was coming from the vehicle. Tucker registered a blood-alcohol content of .201 percent during a field sobriety breath test, with .08 percent being the legal threshold for drunk driving, the police report stated. He later registered .222 percent in a blood test. Super extreme DUI is .20 or above under Arizona law. Tucker signed a threeyear, $16.5 million contract with the Suns after a season in which he averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds a game. He signed with the team as a free agent in August 2012.

By Michael Klopman The Arizona Diamondbacks made Andrew McCutchen angry. In the ninth inning, DBacks reliever Randall Delgado drilled the Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder with a pitch in what appeared to be retaliation after their AllStar Paul Goldschmidt was accidentally hit in the hand during the previous game. Goldschmidt ended up suffering a fracture in his left hand and was placed on the disabled list. "I should be thanking them -- now I'm ready to go," McCutchen said after Pittsburgh's blowout win, via MLB.com. "They did what they needed to do. They hit me. It's water under the bridge. So we'll move on. We'll show up tomorrow ready to play and ready to win. Just remember: I don't forget. I'm ready to go now." Delgado started the atbat with a 95-mph fastball inside, but it just missed him. After throwing a low off-speed slider with his second pitch, Delgado

By Ed Mazza Paul George of the Indiana Pacers suffered a horrific injury during the Team USA Scrimmage in Las Vegas. After fouling James Harden early in the fourth quarter, George came down awkwardly and his right lower leg snapped. George was taken off the court on a stretcher: Roughly two hours after the injury, George -- or someone writing on his behalf -- sent out the following tweet: Thanks everybody for the love and support.. I'll be ok and be back better than ever!!! Love y'all!! #YoungTrece The game stopped for

Paul George approximately 10 minutes, and then coach Mike Krzyzewski addressed the crowd, saying the game would not be completed. “I want to thank the crowd here for understand-

ing what was most important,” he said, according to Fox Sports. George was expected to make the roster of the team that will compete in the World Cup of Basketball, which starts on August 30 in Spain. "This is a tough blow, not only for USA basketball but for the Indiana Pacers," USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said, according to ESPN. "And so as an organization we're just going to let a little time go by here before we address rosters... it seems so unimportant in scheme of things. When you have something like this, it puts things in perspective."

David Wilson dream and live that, too." Wilson was drafted in the first round, 32nd overall, out of Virginia Tech in 2012. As a rookie, he rushed for 358 yards and scored four touchdowns while making his mark as a kick returner. Wilson led the NFL with 1,533 kickoff return yards, a team record. But he got off to a slow start last season before the injury. Wilson's condition is not expected to require additional surgery or therapy. Wilson met with Dr.

Russell Warren, the team's physician, and Dr. Frank Cammisa, the chief of spine service at New York's Hospital for Special Surgery. Cammisa performed the spinal fusion surgery on Wilson. They told him he needed to stop playing football. Wilson then returned to the Giants' training facility and met with team President John Mara, general manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin. Wilson had only 146 yards on 44 carries and one touchdown in five games last season before the injury. He struggled with holding onto the ball, losing three fumbles. Coughlin was prepared for the worst before getting the official medical reports about Wilson. Against New Orleans his rookie season, Wilson set a team record for allpurpose yards with 327. He had 227 yards on kickoff returns and added 100 rushing.

Young Giants RB Told to Stop Playing Football After Another Injury

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants running back David Wilson's NFL career is over after two seasons because of a neck injury. The 23-year-old Wilson was told by doctors that he risked more serious problems if he kept playing. He underwent fusion surgery to repair vertebrae and a herniated disk in his neck in January. Then at practice, Wilson caught a pass and ran with his head down into the back of an offensive lineman, a hit that caused numbness in his hands and lower extremities. He missed the final 11 games last season after being diagnosed with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal cord.

Oxnard, Calif. – Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme announced the launch of the Great Futures Campaign to mobilize the community in support of kids and empower today’s youth to achieve great futures. The local Club is joining Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide to redefine the opportunity equation for kids by elevating the critical role out-of-school time plays in a child’s development. Through the Great Futures Campaign, the organization seeks to ensure that every child and teen has access to a safe place after school and during the summer where they can build the knowledge, skills and behaviors to put them on the path for success. Every day, 15 million kids nationwide (1 out of 4) leave school with no place to go, putting them at risk of being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe. During the summer, an alarming 43 million (3 out of 4) kids in America lack access to summer learning programs, increasing their risk of learning loss and putting them at a disadvantage before the school

year starts. The way a child spends their time after school and during the summer can significantly impact the path they take. “When the nation prepares to go back to school this fall, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme wants to ensure out-of-school is part of the conversation. We’re taking a leadership role with the Great Futures Campaign to elevate the impact of out-of-school time, a critical, yet often overlooked, part of their day,” said Erin Antrim, interim chief professional officer. “When school is out, no child should be unsafe or unguided.

A new report from the Center for American Progress (CAP) in Northwest — “The Leaky Pipeline for Teachers of Color: Getting More Teachers of Color into the Classroom” — revealed that while much has been done in the past 25 years to substantially increase the number of minority teachers, high levels of attrition has offset that success. “If you spend time in almost any major school district in America today, you will notice that the students often do not look much like the teachers. In fact, in some areas, the students don’t look anything like their teachers,” said Ulrich Boser, a senior fellow at CAP. “There is a significant demographic gap in the largely white teaching profession and an increasingly diverse student population,” he said.

State News Feinstein, Boxer, Waxman Urge White House Congresswoman Lee Introduces Measure to Request Housing for Homeless LA Veterans to Strengthen Anti-Poverty Programs

Senator Dianne Feinstein Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer (both D-Calif.) and Congressman Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) urged President Obama to request funds to house homeless veterans on the West Los Angeles Department of Veterans Affairs Campus

Senator Barbara Boxer be included in his fiscal year 2016 budget. “We believe solving homelessness for veterans in Los Angeles should be a national priority,” the lawmakers wrote. “As such, we specifically ask that you request an authorization for the Department of Veterans

Congressman Henry A. Waxman Affairs to enter into enhanced use leases for buildings 205 and 208 as envisioned in S. 1987 and H.R. 2004. Alternatively, we ask that you include funding in your Fiscal Year 2016 budget request to modify buildings 205 and 208 to provide homeless housing.”

Congresswoman Barbara Lee introduced legislation to take measurable action to lift Americans out of poverty and create opportunities into the middle class. “My Pathways of Out Poverty Act starts with creating good paying jobs that will lift families out of poverty and into the middle class while strengthening our social safety for those still struggling,” said Congresswoman Barbara Lee. “When we create good paying jobs and lift people into the middle class, we grow our economy and allow more jobs to be created.” Congresswoman Barbara Lee is the chair of the Democratic Whip Task Force on Poverty, Income Inequality and Opportunity; Co-Chair of the Out of

Poverty Caucus; Co-Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Poverty and Economy Task Force and a member of the Appropriations and Budget Committees. The Pathways of Out Poverty Act was introduced with thirty-five co-sponsors.

“As a nation, we need to commit to the goal of ending poverty in America. This bill establishes a national goal to cut poverty in half over the next decade while providing the resources, infrastructure and good paying jobs to achieve that goal,” added Congresswoman Lee. This bill expands early childhood education; extends the emergency unemployment compensation program; expands EITC as proposed in the President’s FY 2015 budget; improves the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program; restores the SNAP cuts made in the recent Farm Bill; adds critical investments in job training for youth and adults and addresses discrimination against the long term unemployed.

Congresswoman Karen Bass contacts with the child welfare system, and 58 percent of 72 sexually trafficked girls in Los Angeles County’s STARS Court in 2012 were children in foster care. Under-age girls should never be arrested and charged with prostitutions when they are victims. "Today the House of Representatives took a big and important step to protect children in the foster

care system," said Rep. Bass. "This legislation will provide real training to those responsible for protecting foster children and will compile concrete data so that we can continue to fight against sex trafficking" “Rights4Girls applauds the passage of the Strengthening the Child Welfare Response to Trafficking Act and thanks Congresswoman Bass for her tireless efforts in bringing the vulnerability of these youth to light,” said Yasmin Vafa, Rights4Girls’ Director of Law and Policy. "There is an undeniable intersection between child welfare involvement and child trafficking. Today's legislation takes crucial steps to protect our most vulnerable children by improving our current policies to ensure that trafficked and exploited youth in our system are no longer invisible.” The legislation now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Assemblymember Chávez was part of the delegation of State Legislators joining Governor Jerry Brown on the recent trade mission to Mexico City last week. The delegation met with Mexican government and business leaders. “The California-Mexico Trade Mission emphasized the strong economic and social relationship we have with Mexico. Matters pertaining to immigration and drugs are not the sole issues the people of our state should be concerned with.

National News Man Who Filmed Eric Garner's Chokehold Tight North Carolina Race Could Death, Arrested on Weapons Charges Determine Control of U.S. Senate

By Victoria Cavaliere A man who filmed a New York City police officer use a choke hold on a suspect who later died has been arrested on weapons charges, law enforcement officials said. Ramsey Orta, 22, and a 17-year-old female were spotted outside a known drug location on Staten Island by narcotics officers who saw Orta put a handgun in his companion's waistband, the New York Police Department said. Orta, who has a previous criminal conviction, faces two charges of criminal possession of a weapon. At some point during his arrest, Orta told officers, "You're just mad because I filmed your boy," an NYPD spokeswoman said.

Ramsey Orta (c.) The comment was apparently in reference to the July 17 cellphone video shot by Orta during the arrest of Eric Garner, who was placed in a choke hold by a police officer while being detained for peddling illegal cigarettes. Garner later died, and

the New York City medical examiner ruled the his death a homicide. Footage of the incident circulated widely on the Internet, triggering outrage and raising questions about police tactics and use of force. ARRESTED, See page 12A

Mom and Foster Daughter Found The Family of Keith Warren Found Hung Slain in New Jersey Apartment on a Tree Seeks to Have Case Re-Opened

Washington, DC — Sean Bell. Amadou Diallo. Trayvon Martin. Keith Warren. These four men and countless others have no familial or formal relationships, but their lives are interconnected as they each were victims of a grave miscarriage of justice by those who were to protect and serve their communities. On July 30, 1986, the lives of the Warren Family, their friends, and Montgomery County Maryland community would be impacted forever as they were informed of tragic news that Keith Warren – their ambitious 19-year old son, brother, cousin, and friend – was found hung on a tree. After a brief (less than 24 hours) and “reckless” investigation, Keith’s death was ruled a suicide by the Montgomery Police Department. Because of the amount of neglect and unanswered questions surrounding Keith’s death, his mother Mary spent the remainder of her life seeking “justice for Keith”. After her death, the torch was passed to his

Now, 29 years later, the family is asking the Montgomery Police Department to re-open the case to seek accountability and justice into the death of Keith. On the family’s web site there are documents/ texts which outline some of the pressing issues still left unanswered and unproven. For example, how can a man nearly 6 feet and 5 inches tall suspend himself in a tree that was double-bent twice his weight? Why was the same tree

Brooklyn, NY — Prosecutors in Brooklyn, New York City are now reviewing at least 90 cases that may be wrongful convictions. Even worse, 57 of those cases involve the same former detective, NYPD Detective Louis Scarcella. Scarcella’s past cases are being reviewed after evidence revealed that she once coached a witness to pick a suspect of a lineup, and allegedly used another witness who was addicted to drugs to fabricate information at various different trials. One person in one of her past cases has already been exonerated after spending more than 20 years in jail. But according to USA Today, Scarcella’s cases are not the only cases in question. In the past 6 months, seven people have been exonerated after being once convicted by the

district attorney’s office, and the evidence is pointing towards potential police misconduct. Since January of this year, the current district attorney Kenneth Thompson has expanded his office’s Conviction Review Unit and has even budgeted more than $1 million a year to investigate cases of potential wrongful convictions. He is also ensuring that investigations are being more closely monitored. Reportedly, Thompson’s office is first reviewing wrongful conviction claims made by people who are still in prison serving time. Other claims made by people who have already been released from prison or never went to prison will be considered last. Sadly, such investigations can take years to complete and can be very difficult when evidence is lost and/or witnesses have died.

Furthermore, and the question that has caused them to really raise their voices again on behalf of Keith is; how is an official investigation and ruling found legitimate if it is based on falsified allegations and hearsay? In short, the family says that the investigating detective used information from unnamed, unrelated, and unverified sources to rule Keith’s death a suicide 5 hours prior to notification of next of kin.

By David Lohr The deaths of a woman and young girl whose bodies were discovered in a New Jersey apartment have been ruled homicides, police said. The victims were identified by the Long Branch Police Department as Joan Colbert, 62, and her 10-year-old foster daughter, Veronica Roach. A family member reported finding the bodies inside Colbert's first-floor apartment in Long Branch, police said. Authorities have yet to release details on how the two were killed. According to The Asbury Park Press, Colbert had raised the girl since she was 3 months old. Colbert's close friend,

Consumer Reporting Agencies Follow Your Moves By Jason Alderman By now, you've probably heard about the Big Three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion), which monitor your financial history and issue credit reports and credit scores to potential lenders. But did you know that there are dozens of other specialty consumer reporting agencies that track your history for activities that may not appear on your regular credit reports – things like bounced checks, late utility payments, insurance claims and prescription orders? Most people never hear about these companies until they're suddenly turned down for an apartment, checking account, insurance policy or even a job or promotion. But you need to know that potential landlords, banks, insurance companies and employers are very likely ordering specialty reports to help them assess the risk of doing business with you. That's fine if you've got a squeaky-clean track record. But what if their files contain mistakes; or worse, what if someone has hijacked your identity and is poisoning your record with their own bad behavior? Fortunately, you do have recourse. Under federal law, you can request a copy of your report once a year from each agency, generally for free. You're

also entitled to a free copy whenever an "adverse action" is taken against you because of something in the report. (For example, if you're turned down for a checking account.) Unfortunately, there's no central clearinghouse for these specialty agencies so you need to contact each individually. However, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has taken some of the legwork out by compiling a list of the most commonly used agencies, along with instructions and contact information for ordering your reports. (Search "Specialty Consumer Agencies" at www.cfpb.gov.) Another great resource is the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse's fact sheet on specialty reports at www. privacyrights.org. Specialty consumer reporting agencies collect information about you from various sources and share it with creditors and other businesses, including: • Public records of criminal and civil cases • Credit history • Bankruptcy filings • Companies with which you have an existing or prior relationship • Medical information • Driving records Typical inquiries might include: • Check-writing history – for banks, credit unions

and businesses that accept payments by check. They'll look for things like bounced or returned checks and fraud. • Medical conditions and prescription drug history – if you're applying for an individual life, long-term care or disability insurance policy. (Note: Health insurers can't deny coverage or charge higher premiums because of preexisting conditions.) • Residential – landlords checking your tenant history, credit, criminal background, etc. • Auto or homeowner/ renter's insurance – insurers will screen your records for things like traffic violations, claims and property losses. • Payday lending – creditors investigating people who don't use traditional financial services (banking, credit cards, etc.) might evaluate payday loans, check-cashing services, prepaid cards, etc. • Utilities – If you're trying to open a new utility, phone, cable or Internet account. • Employment background – By law, employers must obtain your permission to run a background check.

Disabled Americans Seek More Consumer Protection

As part of commemorating the 24th anniversary of the American Disabilities Act, the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) turned its attention to consumer protections, particularly as relates to settlement factoring. Incidents and accidents that result in disability often come with “make whole” cash settlements from the responsible party. Structuring the settlement allows the money to be safeguarded and split into uniform, tax-free, market-independent monthly payments for life, even if one is able to, and does, work. “[T]he factoring of structured settlements…it is an important issue to many people with disabilities. On average, there are about five to six thousand people a year who factor their structured settlements, so it’s something that’s really critical for us to look at,” says Mark Perriello, president and CEO of the AAPD. People with disabilities usually rely heavily on their disability settlements and/or social assistance for all or most of their income. When financial emergencies arise, beneficiaries in a bind can’t simply draw funds from their settlements (outside of the established monthly payments). Factoring allows people to draw against their settlement by selling the rights to some or all of the monthly payments in exchange for an immediate lump sum of cash. In many cases, factoring also cuts future monthly payment amount to stretch the remaining funds across the lifetime. Of course, this reduction can set the stage for future factorings. DISABLED, See page 12A

By Chris Isidore NEW YORK--Home prices continued to rise this spring, but the pace of increase has slowed since late last year. The S&P/Case-Shiller home price index, a closely watched measure of home values. posted a 9.3% annual increase in its May reading, down from the 10.8% rate in April. The rate of increase was as high as 13.7% in November before slowing every month since. The good news for homeowners is that the index has now been up every month over the last two years -- after posting drops almost every month over the previous five years. And some experts say the current growth is better for the market, because rapid price increases can keep some buyers on the sidelines. "Today's Case-Shiller data is consistent with the slow glide-path down towards a more normal housing market," said Stan Humphries, chief economist for real estate Web site Zillow. "Almost across the board, lower-priced homes have been appreciating more quickly than the most expen-

sive homes, a welcome reversal from prior years." Prices rose in all 20 cities measured by the index, and nine of those markets posted double-digit percentage gains. The fastest growth was a 15.4% yearover-year jump in San Francisco. The most modest gain was in Cleveland, where prices rose 2.4%. Most of the big gains were in markets in California and Florida, as well as Las Vegas. All of those markets were hit particularly hard by the housing bust that followed the home price bubble in the middle of the last decade. A drop in mortgage fore-

(NewsUSA) - No longer do you have to choose between comfort and design. Once thought of as purely utilitarian, today's ceiling fans offer sophisticated styling, designer finishes and glamorous accents. According to the American Lighting Association (ALA), ceiling fans are a unique home cooling option, as they blend aspects of both form and function to improve comfort while enhancing home décor. Indeed, there are many ceiling fan models available that can serve as an eclectic centerpiece for any room, without sacrificing cooling air movement. Modern features, such as single-blade fans, allow homeowners to get the necessary performance while having style options that seamlessly entwine with a home's interior design. Whether modern with clean lines, traditional with classic features or something in between, the newest, most popular fans apply technology that moves the maximum amount of air. "The better fans are quieter, more efficient and have better airflow," says Sean Lavin, chief design officer for Generation Brands, parent company of Monte Carlo Fan Co.

If you’re a struggling homeowner trying to save your house from foreclosure, beware the latest mortgage-relief scam: Dozens of companies have been accused of falsely promising mortgage relief—while collecting millions of dollars in illegal upfront fees, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently filed three lawsuits against eight firms accused of ripping off homeowners. The agency says the

companies collected more than $25 million in illegal upfront fees while promising to modify mortgages or prevent foreclosures. The crackdown on the mortgage-relief scam is code-named “Operation Mis-Modification”. “These companies pocketed illegal fees, taking millions of hard-earned dollars from distressed consumers, and then left those consumers worse off than they began,” Richard Cordray, the bureau’s director, told the Los Angeles Times. “These practices

Home prices were up less than 10% for the first time in more than a year in May. closures and unemployment, low mortgage rates and pent-up demand for people who had wanted to buy homes have combined to help lift home prices. A recovery in home sales and prices have been a major driver of the rebound of the U.S. economy so far this year, as the jump in prices has increased household wealth. The price increases and low mortgage rates also helped many homeowners refinance their mortgages and lower their home payments. But even with two years of increases, prices are still 17% below the peak reached at the height of the housing bubble in early 2006.

are not only illegal, they are reprehensible.” According to the bureau, there are a few red flags to tip off potential victims. Consumers should be wary of any demands for upfront payments and any guarantee that a modification or other assistance will be obtained. The Federal Trade Commission also filed six lawsuits, according to the Los Angeles Times. Overall, officials from 15 states— including Florida, Illinois and New York—have filed a combined 32 lawsuits.

Who needs marriage? It seems to be, the pervasive trend among baby boomers is choosing to live together instead of saying the “I Dos.” It’s only fitting that baby boomers are leading the way when it comes to shacking up among older Americans. It’s fitting because the group born between 1946 and 1964 are the first generation to cohabitate -- as the researchers like to call it -- in large numbers. Cohabitation, once thought to be the lifestyle of younger people aged 20-40ish, has now grown into a very real option for those 50 years and older after they divorce. Cohabitating is now viewed by many as the best long-term alternative to marriage for older Americans. With divorces for those 50 and older doubling since 1990 and making up 25 percent of all US divorces, up from 8 percent

tion with Jennifer Roebuck Bulanda, a sociology professor at Miami University, Ohio and Gary R. Lee, a sociology professor at Bowling Green. “Cohabitation is gaining ground as a family form across the life course,” the researchers say. The study says most researchers have focused their attention on young and middle-age adults and ignored older Americans. Most of the study done on them is on marriage or widowhood, but not on cohabitation. With baby boomers aging, this trend is only going to grow because this was the first group to cohabit in large numbers in the first place, the study says. In essence, many are returning to their roots of what they did before they got married in the first place. The study states “cohabitation will be increasingly common among older Americans.”

(NewsUSA) - When illness or injury strikes, home health care is oftentimes not only preferred, but statistically shown to rapidly improve healing and give peace of mind. So, how do you sift through the many choices? To begin the process, make a list of what you think your loved one will need. Next, ask for referrals from your loved one's physician or a family member or friend. If your loved one has been hospitalized, ask a social worker or nurse at the hospital. Another good place to look is the Internet. Once you've identified the type of care needed, narrow the search to a few agencies. Here are some important questions to ask: Services • Service listing. Do their services cover your loved one's needs? Is someone available to provide information about services, eligibility requirements and funding sources? • Training and supervision. What formal training programs and certifications does the agency require of its direct care providers? What level of professional supervises the care? How often and how do the supervisors oversee the caregivers on location to ensure proper care? • Documentation and coordination. Are visits

Your New Retirement Number

By Carole Fleck Financial experts seem to speculate endlessly about boomers’ projected lifestyle in retirement based on their savings and spending patterns. Now a new survey that polled recent retirees about their standard of living has found that, for some, you don’t need a lot of money each year to retire comfortably and live happily. According to the survey by Baltimore-based investment firm T. Rowe Price, recent retirees report living on 66 percent of their pre-retirement income on average — $58,000 annually — and say they’re very satisfied. Half of the 1,507 people surveyed say they’re living as well or better than when they were working. Most say they’re better off financially than their parents were at that age. The key finding is that retirees are making their retirements work,” says

Anne Coveney, a senior manager at T. Rowe Price. “What’s impressive is that they’ve adjusted their spending and their satisfaction is quite high.” The retirees surveyed had a 401(k) or IRA and a median household savings, including any home equity, of $473,000. Retirees typically have fewer expenses than people in other age groups. They no longer pay for work-related costs, for

example. And by the time they’re retired, their children — and the expenses that go along with them — are gone. According to a J.P. Morgan Asset Management study in March, consumer spending peaks at age 45 and then declines in all areas except health care. The study also found that retirees don’t seem to need as much income to be content. After spending hit $40,000 annually, their satisfaction in retirement increased only incrementally. So can boomers retire with less than financial experts recommend? Generally, advisers say retirees need at least 75 percent of their annual pre-retirement income to maintain their standard of living and reduce the risk of outliving their savings. In other words, if you earned $100,000 a year, you’d need about $2.25 million to last 30 years.

How often does the care provider visit, and how long do they stay? Do they provide care on weekends and evenings? Do the visits allow time to get to know the patient? • Rotation of care. Is care provided consistently by the same caregiver, or is it rotated among different people? If rotated, how often? Does the family receive advance notice when a change is being made? • Accessibility. Do agency office staff and the care provider stay in regular contact? Do they keep you informed of any changes in the patient's health or plan of care? Fees • Funding and billing.

Are services covered by Medicare or Medicaid? Do they supply written statements detailing costs? How often is the care invoiced if there is payment due? • Special fees. Are there fees for special or extended services? Who is responsible for them? Are payment plans available for any out-of-pocket services? Is there someone at the agency who can assist in exploring all payment options?

surgically removing the affected lens and replacing it with an artificial one. While 50 percent of those over

age 80 have cataract, studies have shown that the risk for cataract development can be reduced by taking preventative measures in one’s younger years. While it is possible to reduce your risk of developing cataract, unfortunately it is not 100 percent preventable. There are many factors that can contribute to the development of cataracts including family history, medications, and age.

Four Ways to Protect Yourself from Cataracts

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness across the world and affects more than 22 million Americans. August is Cataract Awareness Month, and NurseWise, a nurse triage and health education provider, has compiled information about the ways you can help protect yourself from getting cataracts. 1. Get a baseline exam if you’re over 40. It is recommended that adults with no signs or risk factors for eye disease get a baseline screening exam at age 40. This is the time when early signs of disease and vision changes may start to occur. People with cataracts usually do not experience symptoms like pain or discomfort in the eye until the cataract is more advanced. 2. Know your risk factors. In addition to having a family history of cataracts or having diabetes, other factors can increase your risk of developing a cataract. People who smoke at least 20 cigarettes per day have twice the risk of developing cataracts as compared to nonsmokers. Tobacco smoke contributes to the development of cataracts. 3. Reduce your risks. Studies have also shown that ultraviolet radiation may cause the protein in your eye lens to breakdown, resulting in cataracts. Wearing glasses with UV protection while outside will protect your eyes from excessive amounts of the rays. Remember to wear your protection in all seasons, though, as the sun is prevalent year round. Not all sunglasses are efficient in filtering out UV rays. When purchasing sunglasses, make sure that they are 100 percent UV-absorbent. 4. Be informed. Impaired vision can be restored by

Why is the NAACP Siding with Verizon Over Net Neutrality?

By Gerry Smith The NAACP and several other major civil rights groups have emerged as flashpoints in the debate over net neutrality, the idea that all Internet traffic should be treated equally. More than 40 civil rights groups are supporting broadband providers that oppose strict net neutrality rules. The civil rights groups say they’re siding with the Internet giants because it’s in the best interest of minority communities. Yet critics say many of those groups are against stronger net neutrality rules because they’ve received substantial funding from Internet providers. Many of the civil rights groups currently siding with the broadband giants also supported the controversial Comcast-NBC Universal merger, came out in favor of AT&T’s failed takeover of T-Mobile in 2011, and supported broadband providers the last time the Federal Communications Commission ruled on net neutrality back in 2010. While all the civil rights groups say that net neutrality is a good idea, they disagree on how to enforce it. Some groups, including Color of Change and the Center for Media Justice, want the FCC to have more authority over Internet providers

to ensure those providers don’t discriminate against certain content. They also say that if net neutrality is weakened and Internet providers are allowed to charge companies to speed up their traffic, it will lead to higher costs being passed on to consumers -- which could have a disproportionate effect on minorities, many of whom already struggle to afford basic broadband connections. Other groups, including the NAACP and the National Urban League, side with Internet providers and oppose subjecting those companies to greater oversight. They claim strict net neutrality rules would deter broadband companies from expanding service in their communities, preventing more minorities

from adopting the Internet. But some civil rights leaders say the different opinions are more than just an honest policy dispute. Alex Nogales, president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, a media watchdog group, claims that many minority groups side with Internet providers on net neutrality because they fear they will lose funding otherwise. “If you have programs with any of these companies, you feel beholden to go along with what they believe,” said Nogales, whose group supports strict net neutrality rules. Civil rights groups tend to play an influential role when the government makes policy decisions that affect communities of color, so their stance on net neutrality is significant. The FCC has made it a top priority to ensure that minorities have equal access to the Internet and aren’t left behind in the digital age. Earlier this month, the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council, a nonprofit that aims to promote civil rights, filed comments with the FCC on behalf of more than 40 minority groups. The letter sided with Internet providers in opposing strict net neutrality rules that subject those companies to more oversight.

Westboro Baptist Church Will Protest Pretty Much Every Tech Company

Wednesday. The quasireligious group, known for its vitriolic anti-gay rhetoric and picketing of funerals, kicked off its latest crusade on Aug. 12. Facebook, Google and Apple headquarters are just a few of the sites on the docket. From a July 25 press release about the stunt: God hates the media; in all its forms. God did not set these social media networks in place to facilitate perverts pursuing their divers filth; nor do they exist for paedophile grooming, spreading sodomite agenda, other wicked political propaganda or propagating mountains of false doctrine. On the contrary, all these media platforms have one purpose; to spread the gospel far and wide. Though you labour in vain to demonize and stop the words we speak; you only succeed causing more people to see, hear and be convicted [all sic]. The WBC’s rationale behind the slew of tech protests is muddled. In a release about the Apple picket, the group calls the company’s late co-founder, Steve Jobs, “a rich, proud fool who now inhabits hell.” The group is also protesting YouTube, because the site “has a long history of removing videos and comments that are biblically accurate.” Even Reddit is a target of the Aug. 12 event, because the site’s late cofounder, Aaron Swartz, was “a poster boy for this online community: a fag, an atheist and a thief.” Before the tour began, WBC hosted a Reddit AMA on Aug. 10.

A Simple Way to Fix a Slowly Charging iPhone

By Kevin Short If your iPhone or iPad seems like it’s taking an eternity to charge, it may not be a problem with the device or the charging cable. Rather, as CNET’s Dan Graziano explains, it may be a simple buildup of dust or debris in the device’s lightning port. This clogged-up port may be the reason behind many people’s charging woes. Graziano recommends using a toothpick or bobby pin to gently clean the lint or debris out of the clogged lightning port. If that doesn’t work, try using a can of compressed air to remove the build-up.

By Paul Carr Recently, Sarah Lacy wrote a blistering critique of anonymous gossip app, Secret, adding to a growing chorus of criticism of the service and its growing use as a tool for bullies and defamers. As the Economist put it: Once, bullies taunted their victims in the playground; today they use smartphones to do so from afar. If you are bullied via Facebook, Twitter or text, you can usually identify your attacker. As a victim of an anonymous messaging app you cannot: at best you can only guess which “friend” whispered to the online world that you might be pregnant. Sarah’s criticism wasn’t just aimed at the founders of the service, though, but also at those who funded it. As she wrote: If Secret continues to grow with everyone trying to profit off of its popularity willfully justifying and ignoring the social cost, there will be Secret suicides. As a community, we will regret this. It will make the Craigslist killer and the Airbnb meth head-gate scandals

seems to be that the relatively small number of people who clicked on a particular link in a story indicates that not many people saw Sarah’s criticism. And so therefore it was irrelevant. The first part of that logic suggests that Byttow doesn’t understand how links work. According to our internal numbers, out of the thousands of people who read Sarah’s post, just 39 readers felt the need to click on the word Secret. Presumably that’s because the vast majority of Pando readers — especially those who clicked on a story about Secret — know full well what Secret is. It wasn’t exactly a story about a product launch. (By the way, if Byttow’s % is accurate, he’s claiming 3m pageviews for the front page of Secret.ly.) Grotesque as it might seem, Byttow’s position on concern over his app’s potential to cause an increase in teen suicides is that criticism only matters if enough people see it. That is, young people killing themselves thanks to Secret only matters to Byttow if it becomes a PR problem.

Commentary Beyond the Rhetoric:

The GOP:

The EPA Has Failed to Consider Our Economy

Chaos is Their Goal Lee A. Daniels

Three events occurred in the tight confines of Capitol Hill last week that underscore the Republican Party’s extraordinary institutional decline and its responsibility for the Congress’ fully deserving its “do-nothing” label. First, early in the week, all but seven Republicans in the GOP – controlled House of Representatives voted to give Speaker of the House John Boehner of Ohio the go-ahead to sue President Obama because they claim his executive orders are in violation of the constitution. The purpose of that “political stunt” – the president’s words for the lawsuit, which he and the Democrats have come to relish for the 2014 campaign – is to keep alive the GOP’s rhetoric about impeaching the president if the November elections give them control of the Senate. Secondly, later in the week Boehner was forced to give up on a GOPdrafted bill to authorize emergency funds for the government’s efforts to cope with the sudden crisis of undocumented immigrant children massing at the U.S-Mexico border. The first-level reason for that stunning rebuke of a Speaker of the House by his own party members

was that GOP hard-line conservatives made it clear they wouldn’t vote for their own party’s bill. But what made the rebuke to Boehner even more humiliating was the week’s third noteworthy event –which was actually a facet the second. That was that the hard-liners had been urged on by the Tea Party’s favorite U.S. Senator, Ted Cruz of Texas. According to numerous media reports, Cruz had met with a dozen or more of the House hard-liners the night before the scheduled July 31 vote to declare his opposition to it. The next day, Boehner, clearly seeing he didn’t have the votes for passage, pulled the bill from consideration. Boehner allies in the House pledged to try to get a spending measure enacted before Congress broke for the summer recess. But the real point of the week’s developments had been made – reinforcing what has been evident since President Obama took office. First, in the midst of a crisis, when America’s national government needs to act swiftly, count on the Republican Party, driven by its reflexive antiObama mania, to oppose any positive action. Secondly, the GOP, which still

Harry C. Alford

boasts about its adherence to tradition and conservative principles, remains wracked by an internal battle between conservative extremists and establishment regulars only slightly less vicious than its war against the president. That civil war these past six years has produced the electoral primary defeats of such staunch GOP veterans as former Senators Robert Bennett of Utah and Richard Lugar of Indiana and, in June, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor – all deemed not conservative enough by the GOP’s Tea Party reactionaries. Cruz, who’s been running for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination since his election in 2012, has waged the war of disruption against the GOP congressional establishment in both the House and the Senate in unprecedented fashion. From the first, he’s been eager to show his disrespect of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, of Kentucky, and Boehner. His meddling GOP, See page 12A

Democrats’ Smart Butt White Boys Syndrome

Earlier this summer, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released new regulations intended to reduce carbon emissions from America’s power plants. It’s now become clear that a measure we’ve been told will do good in our communities will actually be among the most impactful policies passed in our time—and not for the better. Last week, EPA visited just four cities—Atlanta, Denver, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C.—to solicit input on the proposed carbon regulations. This will be the only opportunity, besides submitting written comments, for the American people to weigh in on the proposal. While I and members of my organization hoped to testify and share our concerns about how these regulations will impact the Black business community, the spots filled up in minutes. This wasn’t surprising, as EPA’s carbon regulations are both complex and unprecedented. While many came forward to express misgivings about the proposal and its impact on their constituencies, the hearings appeared to be overrun with environmental groups that seem hardly concerned about the high price our community will pay if these regulations

smart butt White boys talk about. My fear is that another group of smart butt White boys will lead Democrats down the path of defeat unless the strategists reverse course. The upcoming mid-term election may be yet another example of Black voters never getting the credit they deserve winning seats for the party but getting an overabundance of blame when Democrats get their heads handed to them. The Washington Post, carried a story under the headline, “Will black voters be House Democrats’ midterm firewall?” In the story, Israel noted that in 15 of the top 25 districts being targeted by the DCCC, Blacks make up at least 10 percent of the voting-age population, enough to provide the margin of victory. “We have a unique challenge in offsetting drop off with African American voters, with Hispanic voters, and with young female voters,” Israel said. “So we’re tackling those challenges head on.” In the meeting with reporters, Israel mentioned efforts from getting commercials cut by First Lady Michelle Obama to getting Black voters to sign cards committing them to vote in November. As Election Day nears, those cards will

move forward. EPA’s carbon regulations seek to override state authority by prescribing a specific energy mix for each state. The regulations, as proposed, will effectively eliminate coal-based power generation, which also happens to be the most abundant and affordable energy source in the U.S. I fear that by moving too quickly in a direction toward more costly energy sources, the EPA has failed to consider the economic consequences inherent in its proposal. Our small businesses are the lifeblood of America, and they sustain our communities, supporting the livelihoods of owners and employees. Black small business owners have faced more challenges than most and deserve the support of their leaders as they grow and develop their operations. Unfortunately, EPA’s proposed carbon regulations will do just the opposite. By causing utility rates to rise, these regulations will create an impossible environment for economic development, instead of fostering growth. And when the price of electricity rises, prices of goods will rise across the board. For low-income families, too many of whom are African-American, elec-

tricity bills are already a monthly struggle to afford without sinking into debt. This is the wrong time to implement policy that will surely hurt lower- and middle-class families the hardest. We need to invest in our communities through job creation and economic empowerment, not by imposing policy that knowingly pushes families’ monthly budgets to the brink. I want our government to do everything it can to empower innovation among Black entrepreneurs. We’re blessed to live in a country that has recently experienced a manufacturing renaissance, spurred in large part by the innovation intrinsic to the very fabric of America. The uptick in manufacturing is closely tied to having an all-ofthe-above energy portfolio and the low-cost power diverse energy use affords. We cannot take this for granted. We need to utilize all sources at our disposal from coal to wind, natural gas to solar, hydro power to nuclear. It would be irresponsible for us to sit by EPA, See page 10B

Taxpayers Fund Corporate Tax Avoiders Julianne Malveaux

George E. Curry In 1984, former UN Ambassador Andrew Young described the inner circle of Democratic presidential nominee Walter Mondale as “smart a– White boys” who thought they knew everything. Obviously, they didn’t because Mondale lost the general election by a large margin to Ronald Reagan. Knowing that in a president’s second-term, the party in power usually loses 29 House seats, along with the real possibility of Democrats losing control of the Senate this year, some party leaders are trying to give the appearance they are in control and Democrats will buck that historical voting trend. In an interview with a group of African American reporters last week, for example, Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, described how much better positioned Democrats are this year compared to past off-year elections. He spoke of the DCCC hiring a diversity director for the first time, adding a national voter training director, creating an Internet platform for vendors of color and allowing resumes to be dropped off in the field. In other words, he talked about the kind of things

be mailed back to prospective voters, hoping that action will get them to turn up at the polls. The most troubling aspect of the exchange with Israel was that he appears to be putting more faith in such long-shot gimmicks as voter commitment cards than reaching the Black community through the Black Press. In fact, when pressed on the issue of utilizing Black media, Israel said while there may be some Black media buys, “The vast majority of our budget is spent on one thing – that is buying television time. That’s it.” That may be “it” for Democrats in November if they think the best way to reach Black voters is to lump them in with everyone else who watches TV. Even if television reaches more Black voters than Black newspapers, radio stations, magazines and Internet sites, it is not as trusted by African Americans as the Black Press. As a Nielsen study found, “Companies mistakenly believe there are no SYNDROME, See page 10B

Last quarter’s rate of economic growth is good news, especially after the economy stalled, losing momentum in the first quarter of 2014. Many said it was an aberration, caused by bad weather, especially since economic growth in the last half of 2013 was more than 3 percent. On the surface, the economy is, indeed, recovering, not only because of growth rates, but because other indicators (excepting unemployment) are positive signs. Of course, consumer spending explains twothirds of economic growth. If people don’t put their money into the economy, buying durable goods such as cars and refrigerators and non-durable goods, including, clothing and food, the economy stalls. Yet, while the economy is growing overall, the 99 percent have captured most of the growth. U.S. grew by 209,000 jobs in July, according to a report Friday from the U.S. Labor Department reported Friday. Unemployment rate, inched up by a tenth of a point to 6.2 percent. The official unemployment rate in 2009 dropped by a third, indicating that those at the top have gained more in recovery than those at the bottom. How can the stock market expand so rapidly while the bottom

99 percent are stuck? Low wages mean high profits. Some of the stock market gains that have been realized are a function of wages that have not increased. Indeed, some corporations have chosen to move their headquarters away from the United States. Fortune magazine’s Alan Sloan reports that Ireland, Bermuda and Switzerland are the tax havens for the top ten corporate tax- tax avoiders. While these companies hit the road to avoid taxes, they have no hesitation in enjoying the benefits that come from tax protection, and regulation. When these corporations underpay their workers, we supplement their inadequate wages with government-funded income subsidies (food, housing assistance, etc.). When these companies need securities protection, they don’t hesitate to use the Securities and Exchange Commission), also paid for with our taxes. While these corporations operate like foreign corporations for tax purposes, they expect the services of the United States government for their protection. Meanwhile, the leaders of these companies are some of those who argue for lower estate taxes, and

lower taxes for the wealthy. Give me a break! These corporations are ripping off United States taxpayers in two ways. First, they don’t pay taxes on the benefits they receive. Secondly, their advocacy to cut personal taxes is yet another attack on the tax base. Those in the bottom 80 percent gain little from the Securities Exchange Commission and other financial regulatory agencies. They gain little from the regulatory agencies that force corporations to play nice. They’ll pay for these regulatory agencies because they are part of the budget, part of the tax bill. Can we do something about this? Either those corporate deserters should be heavily taxed before they go (or their products should be taxed), giving their competitors an advantage because of lower prices. Similarly, the companies who choose to stay in the United States ought to gain a tax benefit for their loyalty. The tax system can be used to level the playing field.

OFFICERS From page 1A Facility (VYCF) on Wright Road in Camarillo, briefly described his daily work environment. “We deal with people that most people don’t want to deal with,” he said. “It’s tough. Fights, gang related, family problems. We deal with troubled youth, many of whom have single parents or no parents at all.” Daryl Lee, who was employed at VYCF for twenty-four years and now serves on the executive council of the CCPOA as the vice president for the state’s Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), described the youth population there as “the most dangerous, and they’ve failed rehabilitative services at the local level.” It’s no surprise then that among members of the CCPOA, a special bond forms. The stress and danger of the job brings them together and leads them to support each other in good times and bad. Some of that support comes from gatherings such as the one held Saturday night, August 10 at the Bamboo Steakhouse in Camarillo, about five minutes or so from the VYCF campus. It’s a union-sponsored event with balloons and a DJ, a festive atmosphere with a strong sense of camaraderie in the room. Ruby Gaston, who worked as a correctional peace officer at VYCF for 28 years before retiring, still comes to these events because she loved her job and she loves the people that she worked with. “My career not only was something that was my income, it was something I loved to do,” she said. “Over the years, I developed a love for the people who worked there, and I want to be an encouragement to those who still work there.” VYCF has been refashioned since she started in 1980. From simply jailing kids to providing specialized help for an increased number of children suffering from mental illness, the clientele and the treatment that these convicted youths receive has changed dramatically. As Gaston explained: “We started getting a lot of mentally ill youth, and from the time I started in 1980, there’s a big difference in the treatment needed. Drug babies, kids with fetal alcohol syndrome, kids that had been in the foster care system, kids with parents incarcerated. When these kinds of kids started coming in, we weren’t prepared.” That changed in 2005, when a lawsuit forced the DJJ to become more skilled at providing specialized treatment for their young population. The numbers of incarcerated youths in the state juvenile system also dramatically decreased. From 10,000 kids in custody and fifteen facilities across the state prior to the lawsuit, the DJJ is now down to three facilities and about seven-hundred kids. The Camarillo facility is the last state juvenile correctional facility in Southern California. “For the last 10 years we’ve had court intervention that has transformed us from warehousing kids to providing the most cutting edge treatment services in the U.S.,” said Lee. “Youth now are actually being reformed upon their release.” Despite the difficult circumstances, there is a certain reward that officers gain from doing this type of work. “I’ve seen a lot of guys turn their life around,” said Craig Blow, a 12-year veteran. “Guys who’ve beat some people around, and they start programming to take care of their business and go to school. Sometimes the satisfaction of this job is knowing that you had a part in it.” Elsa Zavala, who’s worked with the DJJ since 1986, comes to these gatherings to support her fellow officers. “It’s an opportunity for the staff to just let each other know that we appreciate one another,” she said. Zavala believes that this is all part of her personal workplace philosophy, which is to encourage officers to care for each other and ensure their safety. As she explained: “When I talk to my new staff, my advice is to look out for each other, take care of each other.” Lee feels that people should be aware of the training and dedication of correctional peace officers. “Without trained officers mandated to complete an academy, these guys at VYCF could easily walk away and create havoc in the public,” he pointed out. Having these types of gatherings acknowledges the correctional peace officers’ hard work and the support they provide to their inmates and to each other. “This is the kind of job that has many years of service and you form close bonds because you work daily with the same person,” he said. “This is our way as a union to give back to the rank and file and to the administrators.” CARIB From page 1A fact that European slave owners were paid for giving up slaves at emancipation in the 1830s, rather than the people who were brutalized on plantations without being paid a single cent.

that defined the colonial past,” Beckles said. “It is here, in this house, that the evil system of slavery and genocide was established. This house passed laws, framed fiscal policies and enforced the crimes that have produced harmful legacies and persistent suffering now in need of repair.” He said research by governments shows that British slave ships brought an astonishing 5.5 million enslaved Africans to Caribbean colonies over 180 years, but by the time the practice was abolished in the 1830s, only 800,000 remained, a survival rate among the slave population, including those born into slavery, of a mere 15 percent. His address came two weeks after Caribbean leaders at their summit in Antigua had asked European nations to participate in a reparations summit later this year or early next year and as the region prepares its case to fight Britain, France, Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands, among others, for reparations for slavery, genocide against indigenous communities and Asians shipped to work on Caribbean plantations. He said governments feel that paid reparations will “bring honor and dignity to the people of the Caribbean, as well as to the people of Great Britain and Europe.” Additionally, Beckles argued, governments today are saddled with the task of “cleaning up the awful mess left behind by Britain’s colonial legacy,” noting that the region has waged this battle valiantly. “We are not beggars,” he said. “We are not subservient. We do not want charity and handouts. We want justice, reparatory justice. “Britain and its Parliament cannot morally and legally turn their backs upon this past, and walk away from the mess they have left behind. This parliament has to return to the scene of its crimes and participate as a legitimate parliament, as a legal parliament, in the healing and rehabilitation of the Caribbean.” PEACE From page 2A support them in their self-produced drama.

SUCCESS From page 2A world of creation, there are no restrictions of time or space. Create a vision of your life…the past as well as the future. You are the author of your life. You are the one who is in control of your story. You can choose to break free from limitations and negativity by changing your perceptions about what is possible. As a creative spirit, you can give voice to the best story you can imagine…your soul’s journey. You’ll be surprised and delighted by the results. “The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself” (Alan Alda) If you need help with your “Story Medicine”, I am happy to be your guide. SCHOOL From page 2A should check to make sure their homework is done daily. Set aside a designated time and place for them to do homework each and every day. If they don’t have homework, let have them read during that time. Believe me, doing this early will save you a lot of trouble later on when you find out there was homework that should have been turned in and wasn’t or that they are up late cramming for exams. 4. Don’t Give Up – Teach your children to keep trying, especially when things aren’t easy. Each year the work gets more challenging and more will be expected of them. However, they need to know that they will not win each and every time but to keep trying anyway until they reach their personal best. They will make mistakes along the way, but always be their coach and cheerleader egging them on, “Don’t ever give up!”

5. It’s Okay To Ask Questions And Ask For Help – If your child doesn’t understand something, encourage him or her to ask the teacher questions. Sometimes students feel like their question is a dumb one and can be embarrassed to ask in front of the class so they don’t ever ask them. If your child is tentative then tell them to make time outside of class to speak with their teacher. An interested child is regarded as eager to learn which will make a good impression on their teacher. Always encourage your child to seek answers and assistance when they don’t understand something. Let them know that you are there to support them and will provide what is needed to help them succeed. 6. Be A Leader/Don’t Give Into Peer Pressure – This is something that really takes time, encouragement and consistency, but is very important. First, you want your child to be able to stand tall and have a healthy self-esteem. In order to do that, you as an adult must be consistent, trustworthy and instill how wonderful they are. They need to know who they are and what they possess and be comfortable with that. This means they may not look like everyone else and may not do everything that everyone else is doing. School is a place where almost everyone wants to fit in somewhere, but many find out later on in life that being unique and selfconfident as the individual they were created to be, is where they will find inner peace and be able to fulfill their purpose. 7. Choose The Right Company – The type of people your child hangs around will greatly affect who they are – what they believe, how they talk, how they dress, where they hang out and more. We can’t choose our children’s friends for them, but we can communicate with our children about the importance of knowing who they are and discerning the types of friends they would like to be around who will build them up instead of tearing them down. Discuss character qualities with your child. It is also a very good idea to get to know your child’s friends AND their parents. 8. Don’t Be Afraid To Try New Things – Sometimes a student has an interest in an elective but wants to do what his or her parents desire or what his or her friends want so they can be in the same classes. Sometimes students won’t try out for different sports or participate in clubs because it is something they have never done, or maybe they don’t think it will be fun or interesting. Well one thing is for sure: you never know unless you try it. These experiences will prepare them for college and life. So remember while you’re out shopping in preparation for the school year, to invest in their life skills development. Just as we want to make sure that our children have those necessary supplies to have a successful school year, let’s put in an extra effort to make sure they have some other necessary tools to thrive in school. Not only will your student’s teachers appreciate it, your children will greatly benefit from these things during this school year and later on in their lives. Inez Lanns was born and raised in Ventura County. She currently owns an internet marketing and communications business called Inez Knows. She also writes on her blog on her web site: www.inezknows.com. SPYWARE From page 3A found that it could not be blocked by most antivirus software. Documents also reveal that Gamma had been working to bypass encryption tools including a mobile phone encryption app, Silent Circle, and were able to bypass the protection given by hard-drive encryption products TrueCrypt and Microsoft’s Bitlocker. Mike Janke the CEO of Silent Circle said in an email “We have serious doubts about if they were going to be successful” in circumventing the phone software, and that they were working on bulletproofing their app. Microsoft did not respond a to request for comment. The documents also describe a “country-wide” surveillance product called FinFly ISP which promises customers the ability to intercept internet traffic and masquerade as ordinary websites in order to install malware on a target’s computer. The most recent date-stamp found in the documents is August 2nd, which coincides with the first tweet by a parody Twitter account, @GammaGroupPR, which first announced the hack, and may be run by the hacker or hackers responsible for the leak. On Reddit, a user called PhineasFisher claimed responsibility for the leak. “Two years ago their software was found being widely used by governments in the Middle East, especially Bahrain, to hack and spy on the computers and phones of journalists and dissidents,” the user wrote. The name on the @GammaGroupPR Twitter account is also “Phineas Fisher.” GammaGroup, the surveillance company whose documents were released, is no stranger to the spotlight. The security firm FSecure first reported the purchase of FinFisher software by the Egyptian State Security agency in

2011. In 2012, Bloomberg News and The Citizen Lab showed how the company’s malware was used to target activists in Bahrain. In 2013, the software company Mozilla sent a cease-anddesist letter to the company after a report by The Citizen Lab showed that a spyware-infected version of the Firefox browser manufactured by Gamma was being used to spy on Malaysian activists. MUGABE From page 3A families renting farms from African owners to stay, which is what some had been doing since being violently chased away and having their farms seized a decade ago. “There are white farmers who are still on the land and have the protection of some cabinet ministers and politicians as well as traditional leaders … that should never happen,” he stated. “They [Caucasians] were living like kings and queens on our land, and we chucked them out. Now we want all of it.” Mugabe, 90, has governed Zimbabwe since its independence in 1980. He came to power on the heels of the Lancaster House Agreement, which established that he couldn’t make any land reform changes for a decade. After numerous attempts to redistribute land back to Africans, in 2000, the Zimbabwe government instituted the FastTrack Land Reform Program, which violently forced Caucasian farmers off “their lands” without compensation. The government reportedly seized 110,000 square kilometers of land, and millions of Black farmers were said to have become unemployed. By 2005, the Parliament agreed to nationalize all farmland, silencing farmers who wanted to contest the land grab in court. A decade and a half ago, Mugabe, a former guerrilla leader, embarked on a revolutionary nationwide campaign for land reacquisition, where his supporters forced thousands of Caucasian commercial farmers to turn over their territory under a so-called “indigenization” land reform policy. Caucasians began heavily populating Zimbabwe in the 1890s. The Land Apportionment Act of 1930 divided the lands by ethnicities (Shona, Ndebele, etc.). While traditionally Africans had shared the lands communally, the Caucasians’ presence offset nature’s balance. The Caucasian population flourished while the native inhabitants were relocated to low rainfall areas, forcing 99 percent of the population onto 25 percent of the land. By 1979, Caucasians only made up about 5 percent of the population, with only 4,500 farmers, yet they owned 70 percent of the fertile land. Mugabe was reelected last summer to his fifth consecutive term with 61 percent of the vote while outing his own associates who make lucrative profits by owning farmland and renting it to Caucasians. Mugabe characterized this practice as unpatriotic under his notions of indigenous Black African nationalism. The president’s Zanu-PF party also gained a parliamentary majority of more than two-thirds, winning 160 of the 210 seats. Following this presentation, the 90-year-old leader collapsed. It was reported that he was immediately rushed back to Harare for evaluation. Rumors about Mugabe’s health have circulated for some time, but as he is advancing in age, speculation has increased over the years. Despite official denials, it is widely believed that Mugabe is being treated for prostate cancer. JACKSON From page 3A an unarmed black teen followed by black youth from high-unemployment neighborhoods erupting in rage. “Black men should not be the objects of target practice,” Jackson said of the shooting. “It’s not a unique situation. It’s a prototypical American situation. Police departments do not reflect the population. It’s awful, but it’s not unique.” The resulting community violence on Sunday, following a non-violent candlelight vigil to commemorate Brown, should be seen in the context of a chronic urban crisis, he said. “Poverty is a weapon of mass destruction. Poverty is in the community, guns are in, drugs are in, jobs are out. Banks are bailed out without meaningful community reinvestment. Too many people have no stake in the culture.” Jackson said that chronic urban problems remain to be addressed after the shooting of Michael Brown and the community’s outrage are resolved. “These kids need education, skills, job training, jobs, and scholarships to college. We need a national forum on urban policy, justice and repression. This is a national crisis that has manifested in Ferguson.” When asked for advice from organizers on the ground, Jackson said, “That’s tough. I saw a sign that said we need quietness. Quietness is not the answer. Quietness is the absence of noise. We need the presence of justice.”

CLUBS From page 5A Goals for the Campaign include: • Increase membership and access to Clubs for kids who need a safe place to go after school and during the summer • Ensure successful transitions to middle and high school, and foster college- or careerreadiness with 21st century skills • Motivate kids to be healthy through nutrition and health education, more access to healthy foods, avoidance of risky behaviors and a lifelong commitment to fitness • Engage youth in taking action in their community and the world, promote resilience, build character strength, and develop the next generation of America’s leaders Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme is asking the public to help the organization reach more kids and put them on the path to a great future. For more information about the Great Futures Campaign, visit www.bgcop.org. EDUCATORS From page 5A “Because it’s required by most states and higher education institutions to pass the Praxis I and II exams as well as all required courses, minorities have not been able to do so and they change their majors to something more compatible,” she said. “The second barrier is the financial and family obligations which may hinder future progress toward an education degree and the third barrier that I propose has to do with culture.” BROWNLEY From page 6A bring much needed dollars to our community.” The Port of Hueneme will receive $409,410 from the FY2014 PSGP. The funds will help protect critical port infrastructure from terrorism, enhance maritime domain awareness, improve port-wide maritime security risk management, and maintain or reestablish maritime security mitigation protocols that support port recovery and resiliency capabilities. RACE From page 7A from Dare to Cherokee that the “Old North State is not for sale.” She is delivering this message to groups and communities across the state and recently hosted a summit with hundreds of members of North Carolina’s African American community last weekend in Raleigh. According to campaign staffers, “The purpose of the summit was to help coordinate the efforts of the campaign with the power of the community leaders in attendance.” Speakers included North Carolina’s U.S. Congressional Representatives G.K Butterfield and David Price, State Rep. and Congressional candidate Alma Adams and Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus. North Carolina is now less than 100 days from the 2014 midterm elections, which includes the North Carolina U.S. Senate race. “This election is a clear contrast between my work to put North Carolina first and Speaker Tillis who has shown he will pick the special interests over our families every single time,” said Hagan. “I’ve been proud to build a record of results for North Carolina families and my top priority has been jobs.” ARRESTED From page 7A The choke hold is banned by the NYPD, which says it is investigating why the maneuver was used. Police did not immediately comment on Orta’s assertion that he was arrested as retribution for taking the video. CONSUMER From page 8A Unfortunately, they’re generally not required to identify which company they’re using unless they decide not to hire you – it doesn’t hurt to ask ahead of time, though. Note that when you dispute information in your reports, agencies are legally obligated to investigate and correct any inaccurate or outdated information. Also, they must give you an update on the status of your request to view your report. However, there is no time limit on when your request must be processed. Bottom line: You might not realize there’s false or potentially damaging information being reported about you, so get in the habit of ordering specialty consumer reports along with your credit reports. DISABLED From page 8A Decades of inadequate regulation have allowed predatory practices, such as charging steep fees or underpaying beneficiaries for their settlement rights, to seep into the factoring industry. To address this, the federal government installed structured settlement consumer protections into the tax code. Enter Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Penn.), who introduced the SAFER Structured Settlements Act at the start of this year. It

would eliminate rip-offs by preventing companies from taking any more than 5 percentage points higher than the current ideal interest rate, and would limit administrative fees to 2 percent of the lump sum’s value. Finally, companies would be required to disclose information to help payees understand the process in general, and their transaction in particular. CRUISE From page 9A to protect yourself: • Beware of buzzwords. ”Gotcha” cruise promises tend to use language like “you’re eligible to win” or “guaranteed.” One word that should never trick you: “Free.” It means just that — so don’t pay deposits or service fees on the promise you’ll get them back later. • Find out who really sent the offer. If an offer comes from an unrecognized source, assume the worst. But legitimate cruise lines may send past customers emails or mailings about real low-cost offers. Before you respond, authenticate the address with an online search. Watch out for look-alike Internet addresses that are just a letter or two different from legitimate ones. Never click on attachments in unsolicited emails; they could unleash rogue programs known as “malware” on your computer. • Get proper confirmation of your booking. If you book through a travel agent or other third party, make sure that you get two sets of confirmation numbers — one directly from the cruise line and one from the other agency. That will help in any disputes. • Pay with a credit card. That’s safer than a debit card or check and will allow for easier reimbursement or settlement of payment disputes if problems arise. Courtesy of AARP GOP From page 11A in House matters last week marks the second time he’s undercut Boehner in order to grab the spotlight and build support among the GOP’s reactionary base. Last year, he was among the loudest voices urging GOP hard-liners to stand fast for a government shutdown. Cruz’s sabotage last week led New York Republican, Peter T. King, to complain to a New York Times reporter, “I do wish that Ted Cruz would stay in the Senate. Nobody elected him Speaker … it’s really a cheap shot to be coming in from the side. To have some guy come in from the outside like the Pied Piper is wrong.” And yet, Cruz’s behavior perfectly represents the political game going on on the conservative side of American politics these days – a game whose goal is sowing chaos. Cruz and his Tea Party confederates must disrupt the GOP’s own time-honored political processes and lines of authority – sow internal party chaos – if they’re to seize power from establishment figures like Boehner and McConnell. That strategy has both intensified and yet, ironically, also undercut the commitment the GOP leadership itself made at the very beginning of Obama’s first term to reflexively oppose his administration proposals – to sow governmental chaos – in order to recapture the White House. Those two dynamics adopted by the conservative movement and the Republican Party are the major reasons why the American politics of this era is so polarized: because, for them, political chaos is the goal.

Sherri Shepherd is Heading to Broadway Beyonce's Dad is Teaching a Course on How to Be the Next Beyonce

By Katherine Fung Sherri Shepherd is leaving "The View" soon, and then, she's going on Broadway. The departing co-host announced that she'll make her Broadway debut as the evil stepmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella" come Sept. 9. Shepherd has appeared on "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "30 Rock," among other television shows. Keke Palmer, also making her professional stage debut, will step into the title role. "I am so excited," Shepherd said, showcasing a pair of glass slippers. Shepherd announced in

Sherri Shepherd June that she will be leav- roundtable. Co-host Jenny ing "The View" after seven McCarthy is also leaving years as part of the show's after this season.

The last time Brandy appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in March of 2002, she was 23 years old, pregnant and had recently gotten married -- or so she said. At the time, Brandy had been involved with music producer Robert Smith. The singer told Oprah that the two secretly wed the summer prior. But, after their daughter was born and the couple separated, Brandy's ex revealed that there had never been a marriage. Speaking with Oprah for this weekend's "Oprah: Where Are They Now?", Brandy explains what made her tell the big lie.

"It was a sin." With her innocent, cleancut reputation, the Grammywinning singer also felt the pressure to maintain her public image. "I felt the pressure of having to be perfect. And I was scared," Brandy admits. "I thought that everything that I have worked hard for and everything that I worked to build -- the image that I worked so hard to build -- was threatened." Now, the 35-year-old mother feels remorse for lying to Oprah. "I'm really sorry for that," Brandy apologizes. "I mean, you just don't lie to Oprah!"

Brandy Tells Oprah Why She Lied About Being Married in 2002

Brandy "At that time, being pregnant out of wedlock was not a trend," she says.

Wayne Brady Set to Revive Classic Musical Role

The Pasadena Playhouse announced that Wayne Brady will star as Fred/Petruchio in the Cole Porter Broadway musical KISS ME, KATE. The multi-Emmy Award winning Brady will head a cast of 17. Sheldon Epps will direct the 2014-2015 Season opener, which will run from September 16- October 12, 2014 with the official press opening on September 21. The production also stars Merle Dandridge (Broadway's Spamalot and Tarzan) as Lily/Kate. "It is said that a huge percentage of a director's work is done in the casting process (and I believe that to be true). By this maxim, I know that the cast that we have blessedly brought together for this wonderful show will make my job a joy, and bring genuine electricity to our stage. It has long been my hope to work with Wayne, and he is perfectly suited to this role," said Sheldon Epps. "And I am thrilled that we will have the bountiful visual and musical delights that Merle embodies on our stage once again. I know that this incredibly gifted pair will lead our wonderful company splendidly. It will indeed be 'Too Darn Hot' at each and every performance!" KISS ME, KATE represents the iconic composer-lyricist Cole Porter at his very best and includes some of musical theatre's most famous songs: "So in Love," "Another Op'nin' Another Show," "Too Darn Hot," and "Brush Up Your Shakespeare." It is without a doubt one of the great classics of the American

Wayne Brady musical theatre, celebrating Shakespeare (it describes a production of The Taming of the Shrew) and the joys, madness, and the rewards of working in the theatre both onstage and off. The Pasadena Playhouse production will view the work through a new lens, using the wonderful material of this celebrated production to showcase the trailblazing African-American actors and entertainers of the early 20th century. Emmy Award winning Wayne Brady is one of the most versatile performers in show business today, entertaining audiences with his acting, improv, singing and dancing on television, film and the stage. He became well known for his improvisational skills on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" for which he won an Emmy Award and earned two Emmy Award nominations. Brady went on to host his own syndicated talk/ variety show, "The Wayne Brady Show," for two years. Brady picked up two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Talk Show Host and the show won an Emmy Award for Outstand-

ing Talk Show. He currently is the host of "Let's Make a Deal" on CBS. Brady's additional television credits include "The Dave Chappelle Show," "30 Rock," "Dirt" and "Everybody Hates Chris," as well as "How I Met Your Mother," on the Network. Also, Brady hosted "Don't Forget the Lyrics." Recently, Brady provided his voice for the upcoming animated feature, "Foodfight!" He starred in numerous feature films including, Crossover, and the independent feature The List, a romantic comedy with Sydney Tamiia Poitier and Illeana Douglas. Brady was also featured in Roll Bounce. Brady earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for his single "A Change is Gonna Come" off his debut musical album, "A Long Time Coming." In 2005, he completed a run playing Billy Flynn in the Broadway production of Chicago. Also, he has made a big splash in Vegas with his stage show, Makin' It Up. The Pasadena Playhouse is located at 39 South El Molino Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101. The performance schedule is Tuesday through Friday at 8:00 p.m.; Saturday at 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.; and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Tickets, priced from $47.00 to $87.00, plus premium seats at $125.00, are available online at PasadenaPlayhouse.org; by calling The Pasadena Playhouse at 626-356-7529; or visiting The Pasadena Playhouse Box Office.

By Stephanie Marcus Do you want to be the next Beyonce? Shhh, no need to answer that, it was a rhetorical question. We'd guess that it requires a combination of being blessed with incredible natural talent, a perfectionist attitude, hitting the genetic lottery and a one hell of a pushy stage parent. Enter the Beyonce's own former manager (and current father) Matthew Knowles, who is offering a "day-long, intensive boot camp" at Houston Community College Central on Sept. 13. Yes, the man who not only helped Beyonce become the superstar she is today, but is also responsible for 50 percent of her DNA, is offering a course called "The Entertainment Indus-

Beyonce and Matthew Knowles try: How Do I Get In?" And you know they are calling it boot camp for a reason, lest we forget that Matthew Knowles, who is currently estranged from Beyonce and was accused

of embezzling money from her and other artists he managed, put the girls of Destiny's Child through intense trainings, refusing to accept nothing less than their best, often making them cry. Of course, when the 63-year-old tried to recreate the boot camp trainings that led Destiny's Child to superstardom on his 2011 reality show, "Breaking From Above," let's just say it didn't work. The show followed five women from the U.K. looking to make it big with the help of Matthew Knowles' 20 years of music industry knowledge, and it's safe to say you haven't heard of any of them. The cost for Matthew Knowles' community college course is $295 (preorder) or $350 (at the door).

Nene Leakes on Rosie's Rumored Reality Star Ban on 'The View'

By Denny Directo Is Rosie O' Donnell's preventing reality stars from co-hosting The View? Rosie reportedly has a clause in her new contract that bans reality stars on the show. ET recently caught up with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes to get her take on the latest Rosie rumors. "I would be kind of disappointed to hear that she's like, 'I don't want any reality stars,'" Nene admits to ET. Nene, who was a guest co-host with Rosie on Anderson Cooper's now canceled daytime talk show Anderson Live in 2012, adds, "Once upon a time she and I hosted Anderson's

Jamie Foxx Will Reportedly Play Mike Tyson

Jamie Foxx Jamie Foxx has been cast to play Mike Tyson, one of the most polarizing modern sports figures, in an untitled biopic, Variety reports. Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter is set to write the film. Although details are sparse, Tyson certainly has a wealth of biographical details to mine, including but not limited to: his rise and fall as a heavyweight champion, his six years in jail on rape charges, the Holyfield ear-biting incident, the tragic death of his daughter, his bankruptcy, and his re-entry into pop culture. This wouldn’t be Foxx’s first foray into boxing films. The actor, who will appear next in the Annie reboot, played Muhammad Ali’s corner man in Ali.

Nene Leakes show together and she really was like 'I would love to do a talk show with you.'" That's not all the realitystar-turned-actress had to say to the former talk show host. "The good thing about this Rosie is that Nene

Leakes is not just a reality star," she quips. "I am a mogul, I am an actress, I am a producer, I am a clothing designer." Leakes is certainly proving her power these days with the launch of her new clothing line, "Nene, by Nene Leakes" on HSN. Reports of Rosie's reality star ban don't come as much of shock considering her former frenemy Elisabeth Hasselbeck was a contestant on Survivor: The Australian Outback in 2001, before joining The View panel in 2003. Rosie O' Donnell returns as co-host of The View with moderator Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18, beginning this fall.

Jim Hensley Port Hueneme City Council candidate

Port Hueneme, CA -- On Saturday, August 9, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union members hosted a successful Children Cancer Fundraiser titled “Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer”. Over 200 people walked near the eroding beach in Port Hueneme -- 80 walkers were children. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to have a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since the first stand, the foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. The walk started at the Dorill Wright Pavilion Parking Lot and ended in front of the lighthouse. Port of Hueneme CEO and Port Director Kristin Decas opened the port to the fundraisers. Participants boogied down to the groovy sounds of City Sound Club while dining on scrumptuous barbeque catered by BG’s Cafe. The fundraiser was co-sponsored by: BG’s Cafe, Vomax Inc., Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, Ports of America, 1st Imprint and Clinicas Camino del Real. Jess Ramirez, a Port Hueneme longshoreman, also helped organized the event.

News from the D.A. VENTURA, CA - District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that former Ventura County Human Services Agency (HSA) employee Ana Maria Castro, of Oxnard, was sentenced to four years in state prison for misappropriation of public funds, embezzlement of public funds, public benefits fraud, and filing false or forged documents. She was also ordered to pay $252,903 in restitution to HSA. The sentence was imposed by Superior Court Judge Ryan J. Wright. Castro was employed by HSA for 10 years as a client benefits specialist. She used her position to appropriate CalFresh (food stamps) and cash aid benefits from two inactive clients, and also created an account for a nonexistent family, adding numerous nonexistent household members to each account to maximize the illegal benefits she received. Additionally, Castro provided CalFresh cards to two relatives, who also illegally appropriated benefits. Castro's sentencing follows her guilty plea on April 24, 2014. Castro's thefts defrauded not only her employer, but stole money paid by taxpayers intended to help our most vulnerable residents meet basic needs. All events are subject to change.

Only the hotel and a few condo buildings sit on this man-made isle at the base of Biscayne Bay. The high-roofed lobby, with floor-to-ceiling windows looks like a set from a Wong Kar-Wai art-house film. Impeccable decoration, pleasing colors and stately furniture underscore the pure elegance. The 295 rooms and 31 suites feel open, spacious and some have a large window between the bathtub and sleeping area that provides unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline. After sunning on the sand-beach pier or dunking in the pool, head to the 15,000 square-foot spa.

Soul 4 II trio at Cafe Fiore, 66 S California St., in Ventura The Sound Effect band prides themselves in their trueness to live music. All instruments are played live and they never use pre-recorded background tracks at any live performances. This gives them the ability to change the feel of songs as they feel the need to which in turn keeps them fresh and energetic on stage. The fact that the core 4 members of the group have been together for over 11 years makes this possible. Having performed together for so many years also gives them the tightness that distinguishes them from any other group. Besides their unmistakeable talent, they enjoy themselves on stage so much that the feeling is contagious. Their fans become more like family and the vibe they give off becomes their own.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-730-2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http:// www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-08214153-CL . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, di-

rections to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. 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 a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations.

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 appli-

cable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http:// www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-13586672-CL . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. 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 a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations.

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.

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

auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 730-2727 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.LPSASAP. COM, using the file number assigned to this case 008100-CA. 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.

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.

YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED March 1, 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 PROCEEDINGS AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. On August 27, 2014 at 11:00 AM, at the main front entrance to the County Government Center Hall of Justice, 800 S. Victoria Ave., Ventura, CA 93003, MTC Financial Inc. dba Trustee Corps, as the duly Appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust recorded on March 9, 2006, as Instrument No. 200603090050419, of official records in the Office of the Recorder of Ventura County, California, executed by MIRNA A. ESPINOZA, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN, as Trustor(s), in favor of MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION SYSTEMS, INC. as nominee for OWNIT MORTGAGE SOLUTIONS, INC. as Beneficiary, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER, in lawful money of the United States, all payable at the time of sale, that certain property situated in said County, California describing the land therein as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 207 EAST SANTA PAULA STREET, SANTA PAULA, CA 93060 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 $569,782.78 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. 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. 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 Priority Posting and Publishing at 714573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08001735-14-1. 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.

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. 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 a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holder’s rights against the real property only. THIS NOTICE IS SENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF COLLECTING A DEBT. THIS FIRM IS ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT ON BEHALF OF THE HOLDER AND OWNER OF THE NOTE. ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED BY OR PROVIDED TO THIS FIRM OR THE CREDITOR WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not

automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-730-2727 or visit this Internet Web site www.servicelinkASAP. com , using the file number assigned to this case 11-09597. 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.

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.

The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the In-

dependent 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: 9/11/2014 at Time: 9:00 AM in Dept.: J6 Room: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Ave, Oxnard, CA 93036, Oxnard - Juvenile 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.

EPA From page 11A while EPA dictates that we must use the most expensive and least reliable energy sources. I spend a great deal of time worrying about the future of the black community. This is, in large part, because the median household income has decreased for African-American families since the economic crash in 2008. And I became all the more concerned when learning of the EPA’s dangerous carbon regulations that will increase energy costs that in turn create a domino effect of job losses, higher bills and a bleak economic future. The Black community should pay close attention to the debate as it unfolds and call for our government to invest in Black business owners, workers and families; not leave us struggling to survive. They seem to smile when we claim small business will hurt. It is like the EPA and radical environmental extremists get a “kick” out of the idea. Increased poverty is not the way to make the world a safer place. It brings poor health which isn’t what they say there mission is. It brings crime and violence. It makes America less than it can be. My people, we must rise to this threat and fight it with all we have. The phony hearings, false science and claims should be challenged. Contact your political leaders and ask them don’t they see this coming? We are going to fight this in the fashion we used to fight Cap and Trade legislation. We defeated it even when both the Senate and Congress were controlled by the White House. It will take some time but in the end we all must be fierce and unrelenting in our activities against this very severe threat to our communities. Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce ®. Website: www.nationalbcc.org Email: halford@ nationalbcc.org SYNDROME From page 11A language barriers, that a general market ‘one-sizefits-all’ strategy is an effective way to reach African-Americans. Just the opposite is true.” If smart butt White boys are as smart as they think, they would recognize that in the Black community, the messenger is as important as the message. And that is not limited to the Black Press. It also applies to the largely White-controlled 527 organizations established in recent elections that acted as though they knew more about our community than grass root organizations that are on the ground every day, yet continue to struggle for funding. Democrats face another hurdle – 67 percent of the Democratic base does not know there is a midterm election in November, according to polling done for the DCCC by Cornel Belcher, an African American. In addition, a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center in July found: “Currently, 45% of registered voters who plan to support the Republican in their district say they are more enthusiastic about voting than in prior congressional elections; that compares with 37% of those who plan to vote for the Democratic candidate.” Democrats need to give Blacks something to vote for rather than overly relying Republican calls for impeachment to motivate the Black base. According to an analysis of the Black vote by the Associated Press, African Americans voted at a higher rate than Whites in 2008 and 2012. Obviously, having Barack Obama’s name on the ballot was a key factor. Blacks can vote at high levels again in 2014 if they understand the success or failure Obama’s last two years in office will be determined by who gets elected in November. But if Democrats stubbornly stick to relying on television to reach Black voters, they will lose in 2014 just as smart butt White boys lost 30 years ago. George E.

TAX From page 11A many use the free market excuse to say their hands are tied. Legislation that prevents corporate rip-offs makes sense, but it is likely to be swallowed by the legislative gridlock that is a permanent feature of this Congress. As long as runaway corporations push their tax burden on the rest of us, economic recovery is rushing up instead of trickling down.

Spanish Tortilla

Active Time: 40 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes Servings: 6 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided 1 small onion, thinly sliced 1 cup precooked diced red potatoes, (see Tip) 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika 6 large eggs 4 large egg whites 1/2 cup shredded Man chego, or Jack cheese 3 cups baby spinach,

roughly chopped 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add potatoes, thyme and paprika and cook for 2 minutes more. 2. Lightly whisk eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Gently stir the potato mixture into the eggs along with cheese, spinach, salt and pepper until combined. Wipe the pan clean; add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and heat over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture, cover

and cook until the edges are set and the bottom is browned, 4 to 5 minutes (it will still be moist in the center). 3. To flip the tortilla, run a spatula gently around the edges to loosen them. Invert a large plate over the pan and turn out the tortilla onto it. Slide the tortilla back into the pan and continue cooking until completely set in the middle, 3 to 6 minutes. Serve warm or cold. Make Ahead Tip: Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Tip: Look for precooked diced potatoes in the refrigerated section of most supermarket produce departments.

MIAMI From page 1B Herbal Compress Ritual (warm compresses of herbs and essential oils applied to the body’s key muscles in a tailored massage: $285) to the indulgent Oriental Harmony (starts with a footbath, continues with a four-handed scrub and massage and ends with a simultaneous head and foot massage: $495). After a refreshing day at the pool and spa, dinner can be near or far. The hotel’s Peruvian cuisine at bayside restaurant La Mar by Gastón Aurio is impressive. On first view, you walk in the main dining room past the unique Cebiche Bar (aka Peruvian sushi bar with 15 different dishes) to an outdoor verandah. Start with Tiraditos (Japanese sashimi Peruvian Style), Causas (whipped Peruvian potatoes and aji) or Hot Piqueos (Peruvian sliders made with pork, scallops or calamari). If you’re lucky, the whole fish of the day will be the Hogfish, a tender snapper-like fish that’s fried to perfection and served curled up on a plate with spicy sauce, bok choy and white chaufa broccoli rice. End the meal with Los Picarones de las Esquinas (crispy soft sweet potato and pumpkin fritters). For a more festive experience, walk across Brickell Key Drive Bridge, up Brickell Avenue to the restaurant named 15th and Vine, which sits on the 15th floor of the Viceroy Hotel. Some nights there’s a live band outside on the patio where you’ll hear tunes by Marc Anthony, Ed Sheeran and Pharrell. The lively spirit of the venue is also embodied in the menu. Begin the meal with Duck Confit Mac & Cheese
 (orecchiette, smoked cheddar), Bacon Wrapped Dates or Grilled Flatbreads with Roasted Pears or Shrimp. But save room for main courses such as their tender Double Bone Lamb Chops (with spring peas and house made dumplings). The Area 31 Restaurant and Outdoor Lounge sits perched on the 16th floor of the Epic Hotel, at 270 Biscayne Boulevard Way. Its view down Brickell Avenue at night is perhaps the best cityscape in downtown. Under the direction of Executive Chef Wolfgang Birk, fresh, local ingredients is a key factor on the menu with entrees like Seafood Risotto (ruby red shrimp, grouper, snapper, mussels, sea urchin); but your palette might be really pleased by the soft-as-butter ribeye steak. South Beach has its Oases And if you do head to South Beach, you’ll notice that the crowds cluster at beachside hotels on trendy Collins Ave or boisterous lower Ocean Drive. Washington Avenue runs one street west of Collins and is far less traveled. Between sixth and seventh streets, there is gem of a boutique, luxury hotel, the cottage-looking, white-colored The Angler’s. It has

a choice of 45 rooms and suites, with balconies, poolside views and/or two-floor-duplexes that are adjacent to a plush Moroccan style lobby. For brunch, lunch or dinner the hotel’s restaurant, 660 Angler, is a cozy, banqueted room and the food is sweet. The Three-Fried Chicken Tacos appetizer is almost a meal by itself. The Seared Mahi Mahi (with Chipotle Adobo rice, black bean puree and jicama mango salsa) is delicately flavored. The Key Lime Pie has the consistency of a gritty Ricotta cheesecake. If you want to venture out for local dining, two new restaurants with similar names and different cuisines have sprung up two blocks apart on Lenox Avenue near 16th Street. People flock to the over-crowded, eternally waitlisted, Yardbird Southern Table + Bar at 1600 Lenox, where the house specialty is southern food. Don’t get talked into ordering Moma’s Chicken Biscuits, they’re sliders made with tender biscuits but they’re filled with a fried chicken thigh that’s so tough you might crack a tooth chewing it. Up the street is the friendlier, less pretentious sports bar/restaurant Yardhouse at 1681 Lenox Ave. The party atmosphere is punctuated by big screen TVs showing soccer, tennis and baseball. Dig into the Black Truffle Cheeseburger (with truffle cheese, tomato bacon and onion jam) on a potato bun and order a side of Truffle French fries.The Quiet Part of Ocean Drive A city ordinance bans loud outdoor music from 14th Street to 15th Street on Ocean Drive where the popular avenue ends. No noisy outdoor roof bars, blaring house music or raucous, scantily clad young partiers. This is quiet zone. Families frequent the Hagen Daz ice cream shop, adults wait in line at Starbucks, couples snack at the local pizza parlor. This is where you’ll find Edgewater South Beach, a former condo building turned small hotel. The front façade looks like a pale, pale pink South of France chateau. The 48 Deluxe Studios and One-Bedroom Suites are big enough for couples and entire families, and that’s whom they attract. Oceanview rooms look across a park to the beach. Top floor rooms have outdoor patios where you can sunbathe or dry your swimsuits. An $18 daily guest fee includes brunch on the rooftop terrace, wickedly fast WiFi, local calls, beach chairs and towels. Walking down to festive lower Ocean Drive takes seconds. Walking up to the more adult- and tourist-filled, shop-lined Lincoln Road takes minutes, and on the way ladies can stop by the Ritz-Carlton South Beach’s Spa for their 110-minute, 10-step, self-indulgent Carita Precious Ceremony Diamond Facial. The treatment includes: rénovateur

massage and skin exfoliation, ultra targeted facial massage with Pro-Lift machine, Diamond Mask application, Paraffin wax on hands and feet, etc. for $355 and is part of the Ritz’s 10th Anniversary Dazzle You In Diamonds $100,000 package. Most of the restaurants on Ocean Drive are tourist traps. The glaring exception is the BLT Steakhouse, one block north of the Edgewater. Dine here and you may need to bring your heart medication. Once you see the prices, heart palpitations could ensue: $55 for a Ribeye, $58 for New York Strip. The quality of the food is as high as the price. More modest wallets can pay $32 for Grilled Local Snapper (with sweet pea guacamole and cilantro vinaigrette), which is delectable. But you may find yourself jealously eyeing the $90 Porterhouse Steak for Two. Things to do and a Family Surprise The Flamingo Park Tennis Center in South Beach, and North Shore Tennis Center on 72nd Street near Collins are now comanaged with Miami Shores Tennis Center at 825 NE 100th Street in Miami Shores. The tennis pros (Julio, Marcello, Burd, Thibo) are a joy to play with, the facilities run smooth and clinics for adults and day camps for kids abound. If adult time to you is shopping, jump in your rented car (it’s a 35-minute drive north) or hop on a shuttle bus to arguably the best discount mall in the country, Sawgrass Mills Mall (http://www. simon.com/mall/sawgrass-mills) in Plantation, Fla. The sprawling, bargain-shoppers’ paradise features more than 350 stores. The 75-year-old Jungle Island (http://www.jungleisland. com/index.cfm), a private animal abode, is appropriately located on 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, a street on a small island on Route. 395 between downtown Miami and South Beach. There are several ways to encounter the exotic animals (white tigers, red kangaroos, Brazilian macaws, South African penguins, orangutans), some of which have been bred out of extinction here. Just show up with the kids. Or, take a scheduled tour. Come for one of the shows (wild birds, big cats, penguins). Sleep overnight on a Jungle Slumber. Or, for the most intimate experience, take a V.I.P. Safari Tour. The latter is a privately guided, 90-minute, $240-per-person excursion that starts with personal interactions with red-ruffed lemurs (primates from Madagascar). In the summertime, no matter how warm it gets, there’s a breeze off the ocean in Miami and the air is clean and clear. Unlike the winter months, when the snowbirds from the northern cities swarm the restaurants, hotels and attractions, it’s peaceful, less expensive, accessible and a pure joy whether you’re living the life of pure luxury or seeking out hidden gems.

Velvet Chicken with Baby Bok Choy

Active Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes Serves: 4 (about 1 1/2 cups each) 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut cross wise into 1/4-inch thick bite-size slices 1 egg white, lightly beaten 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon corn starch, divided 2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons Shao Hsing rice wine (see Note) or dry sherry, divided 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided 3 tablespoons peanut oil or canola oil, divided 1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth 2 teaspoons reduced sodium soy sauce 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper 6 cups water 2/3 cup chopped scallions, divided 1 tablespoon finely julienned or minced fresh ginger (see Tip) 1/4 teaspoon crushed

8

red pepper cups trimmed and halved baby bok choy (about 12 ounces) 1. Combine chicken, egg white, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 2 teaspoons rice wine (or sherry) and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Stir until the cornstarch is totally dissolved and no clumps are visible. Add 1 tablespoon oil and stir to combine. Marinate in the refrigerator, uncovered, for 30 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, combine broth, soy sauce, white pepper and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch and 2 tablespoons rice wine in a small bowl. 3. When the chicken has 10 minutes to go, bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add 1 tablespoon oil. Reduce the heat to low. Carefully add the chicken to the barely simmering water; gently stir so it doesn’t clump together. Cook just until opaque but not cooked through, about 1 minute. Carefully drain the chicken in a colander and shake to remove excess water. 4. Heat a 14-inch flat-bot-

tomed wok over high heat until a bead of water vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact. Swirl in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add 1/3 cup scallions, ginger and crushed red pepper; using a metal spatula, stir-fry until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add bok choy and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir-fry until the bok choy is almost crisptender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chicken. Stir the broth mixture again, swirl it into the wok and stir-fry until the chicken is just cooked through and lightly coated with sauce, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Serve sprinkled with the remaining 1/3 cup scallions. Note: Shao Hsing (or Shao xing) is a seasoned rice wine. It is available at most Asian specialty markets and in the Asian section of some larger supermarkets. If unavailable, dry sherry is the best substitute. Tip: To finely julienne ginger, cut peeled fresh ginger into paper-thin slices, make a stack of 3 slices at a time, then cut into fine matchsticks (about 1/8 inch wide).
