The Long, Slow Flow of Oxnard’s Wastewater

By Tim Pompey When you wash dishes or take a shower, do you ever wonder where that water ends up? Probably not. Out of sight, out of mind as the saying goes. But the City of Oxnard is certainly thinking about it, and their public works department must deal with it 24/7. For Oxnard, Port Hueneme and Point Mugu, there are about 425 miles of sewer lines, an enormous multifunctional water treatment plant located off of Perkins and Hueneme Road in Oxnard, and a water pipeline that travels under Ormond Beach, stretches 6800 feet out into the ocean, and releases an average of 21 million gallons of treated water a day. These are only a few of the things that came to light during the City of Oxnard’s public tour of their wastewater treatment plant and advanced water purification facility on July 17 and 19. For Daniel Rydberg, the city’s public works utilities and engineering manager, talking to local water users about these and other details are part of his department’s goal—to help educate its customers about what goes into water treatment. As the tour demonstrated, it’s a massive hightech process that remains largely unnoticed by the

(Photo Courtesy: Tim Pompey) general public. “One of the reasons why we wanted to have the tour,” said Rydberg, “is to let everybody know what we have here and what it takes to treat our water.” Rydberg feels it’s important for the general public to have a better understanding of what it takes to run a large water treatment

facility. “I think that the main thing to know is that there are a lot of facilities that are kind of out of view that are very important and in some cases very expensive and need maintenance and attention.” Currently, the department of public works is working with the city to help update the city’s gen-

Around the Tri-Counties It’s Time to Reclaim Your Lost Blessings! Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan The Israelites had been in slavery year after year for some 400yrs., even though they were promised land that they could live from, a land that flows with milk and honey. They were brutally mistreated and taken advantage of. One day God supernaturally brought them out over that bondage, through the miracle of opening up the Red Sea. The Israelites walked across on dry land. After much traveling, they finally made it to the promise land they were camped right next door. God promised them the victory; all they had to do was fight for the land. They were so close they could taste it. Their dream was about to come to pass. Moses sent some men in to spy out the land. They came back and said Moses we’ll never defeat these people. They are so much stronger and so much powerful than us, we don’t have a chance.

That negative report spread like wildfire throughout the rest of the camp. The people got discouraged. They started complaining saying Moses why did you bring us out here in the desert to die why can’t we just go back to being slaves. Do you know those people, even though they were right next door to the biggest blessing ever, never made it in to the promise land they wandered around in the wilderness for over 40 years? My point is this. It became permanent because of their own wrong thinking. It was never Gods intention for them to stay in mediocrity. God never planned for them to wander around defeated, constantly struggling, constantly in lack. They had seen God do great things but when we get discouraged and we slip over into that negative mentality, we start thinking my obstacles are too big I don’t see how I could ever change it’s always going to be like this, wrong thinking is what allows it to become permanent. And some of you today just like them you are camped right next door to your biggest promise. You are so close to a major victory. You are so close to seeing that promotion you’ve been praying for, so close to a new day in your health. Let me encourPaid Advertisement

age you, don’t do like they did and say Oh I’ve had this sickness for years my obstacles are too big, I’ll never get any good breaks. No shake that off and let this seed of faith take root. You must have the attitude: It’s my time, this may look permanent but I say through the Christ in me it’s temporary I’m not going to live my life defeated, depressed, negative I’m going to step in to my promise land. Situations our only permanent if we allow it to become permanent in our own minds. In the book of Genesis Isaac was talking to his son Esau and he said something so interesting he said Esau your brother has tricked me and he has carried away your blessing. This is saying someone or something can carry away our blessing. I’m sure sometimes we’ve let disappointment carry away our blessing. Sometimes we let discouragement carry away a blessing. No doubt at times we’ve all let other people steal a way our blessing. I don’t know about you but this does something to me on the inside; it makes me more determined than ever that I am going to stand in faith and not allow anyone or anything to carry away my blessings. BLESSINGS, See page 12A

The Body-Mind Workout The Mind Matters By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC Did you know that you could maximize your sports performance and tone both your body and mind using simple techniques that the pros use? Before a workout or game, you’re probably not thinking about relaxation. You may want to reconsider. Relaxed muscles allow the fluid motion needed for sports, which improves your athletic performance. After relaxation, your mind becomes quieter, allowing better focus on your fitness routine. You are less likely to injure yourself when you are relaxed and concentrating on your form and motion. Attention to breathing is an important part of many relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga and hypnosis. A progressive muscle relaxation can also prepare you for exercise. Although it is possible to self-induce

a trance from a script or an audiotape, you should consider starting with a Certified Hypnotherapist to reach a deeper level and to learn self-hypnosis methods. Relaxation combined with imagery creates a more dramatic effect on your performance. Elite athletes have incorporated imagery into their training for years. Men’s Fitness (June 2002) reports “athletes from Tiger Woods to a variety of Olympians have used hypnosis to help visualize optimal performance and overcome self-doubt.” Imagery is the process of creating a mental “picture.” Effective imagery is not limited to sight, but uses sound, smell, taste, touch, kinetics and emotions as well. Imagery creates a powerful experience of being your best. It improves your performance and achievement because “you build a template in

Slow Down! Inez Knows

Inez Lanns

By Inez Lanns Everything is so much more intense these days. The competition has even thickened. So much more is required these days, but are we missing some things? Back in the day, kids went to kindergarten so that they could learn to read. Now they are behind if they don’t know how to read and write their name when they begin kindergarten. In order to be chosen to play on a high school sports team one can’t just be athletic, but nowadays must have been playing the sport since elementary school. In order to get into a good four year college you don’t just need to have good grades, but you also

need community service and other exemplary items on your academic resume to get in. The pressure that is put on these young people can be a lot to handle. The school standards have also greatly increased. Now there are all these tests to see if students have obtained the required educational standards, so much so that teachers are teaching to test (which means that they aren’t always able to take the time to thoroughly go over material).

An Eye For An Eye, A Tooth For a Tooth. How Do You View the Death Penalty?

By Gary L. Harbour

Julie Simmons, 50 Oxnard, CA

Angel Garcia, 26 Oxnard, CA

“I think that this saying means we’ll all become blind if we do evil for evil. I do not believe in the death penalty. There are some poor people that can’t afford high price attorneys, or afford legal defense to get out of trouble. This system is unfair to people who can’t afford a defense. Our system tries to be fair, but America is falling so short of justice for all. It is justice for the rich. So, no death penalty.”

“My view on the death penalty is if you kill someone you should get the death penalty. But, only if it has to fall under the premeditated murder clause. If you asked me this question ten years ago, I would have a different overview.”

“My view is that law enforcement can kill people, and don’t get charged. Although if someone harmed one of my family members and I killed them, I would get the death penalty. So, that is justice.”

“I do not believe in the death penalty. Punishing convicted individuals with death cannot be justified, regardless of the alleged crime.”

“An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, speaks for itself! Especially, when giving the death penalty.”

“My views on the death penalty is of course it’s only right for law enforcement to decide who deserves to be put to judgment, when they are not always serving justice to those who truly deserve death. Rapist, murderers, pedophiles still walk freely. So, why is it wrong for civilians to handle what the law doesn’t see, if it’s right?”

1 Injured In Gas Explosion

At Oxnard Bakery

OXNARD — Officials say a gas explosion at an Oxnard bakery has left one person injured. The Ventura County Star reported that the Sunday morning explosion happened inside the Ortiz Bakery, blowing out the store’s windows and injuring one of two people inside the business. The Oxnard Fire Department transported the injured person to a local hospital. According to the newspaper the person was later taken to a burn center. Authorities say the explosion started from the bakery’s oven. They are investigating the cause. Fire officials say the blast did not cause any structural damage. The bakery’s owner was one of the two inside but escaped unharmed.

Santa Paula volunteer cop suspended over video rant against cyclists

Laura Weintraub, a Santa Paula reserve police officer was suspended after she posted a video rant against cyclists on YouTube. The part-time volunteer drew the ire of local cyclists after she posted a video revealing her ‘hate’ for two-wheeled riders. She later apologized on Facebook. Weintraub filmed herself asking a man who was driving her around how much she’d have to pay for him to run over a cyclist. “I hate bicyclists, every

single one of them,” she said before mocking the clothes and demeanor of every single two-wheeled rider they passed. The video finished with an image of a car plowing into several cyclists. “Like you’ve never thought about it ...,” the caption stated. Cyclist “Shaioved” suggested that Weintraub should be placed on bicycle patrol. At first, despite a wave of criticism, a spokesman stated that reserve officer

Weintraub did some “great satire videos in her personal spare time.” The clip was deleted from Weintraub’s YouTube channel Saturday morning. “It was never meant to be hurtful or harmful in anyway. I am a human being. I made a mistake. I have learned from this and ask for your forgiveness,” she wrote. Police Chief Steve McLean said he accepted Laura Weintraub’s resignation letter on Sunday.

Inductees, from left, Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux and Joe Torre pose with their plaques at Clark Sports Center during the Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown, New York. (Photo Credit: Jim McIsaac) By John Kekis COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Frank Thomas choked back tears, Joe Torre apologized for leaving people out of his speech and Tony La Russa said he felt uneasy. Being enshrined in the Hall of Fame can have those effects, even on the greats. Thomas, pitchers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, and managers Bobby Cox, Torre and La Russa were inducted into the baseball shrine and all paid special tribute to their families before an adoring crowd of nearly 50,000. "I'm speechless. Thanks for having me in your club," Thomas said, getting emotional as he remembered his late father. "Frank Sr., I know you're watching. Without you, I know 100 percent I wouldn't be

here in Cooperstown today. You always preached to me, 'You can be someone special if you really work at it.' I took that to heart, Pop." "Mom, I thank you for all the motherly love and support. I know it wasn't easy." The 46-year old Thomas, the first player elected to the Hall who spent more than half of his time as a designated hitter, batted .301 with 521 home runs and 1,704 RBIs in a 19year career mostly with the Chicago White Sox. He's the only player in major league history to log seven straight seasons with a .300 average, 20 homers, 100 RBIs and 100 walks. Ever the diplomat as a manager, Torre somehow managed to assuage the most demanding of owners in George Steinbrenner,

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice

received a two-game suspension from the NFL on following his offseason ar-

maintaining his coolness amid all the Bronx craziness while keeping all those egos in check after taking over in 1996. The result: 10 division titles, six AL pennants and four World Series triumphs in 12 years as he helped restore the luster to baseball's most successful franchise and resurrected his own career after three firings. Torre, the only man to amass more than 2,000 hits (2,342) and win more than 2,000 games as a manager, was last to speak, and in closing delivered a familiar message. "Baseball is a game of life. It's not perfect, but it feels like it is," said the 74-year-old Torre, who apologized afterward for forgetting to include the Steinbrenner family in his speech.

Ray Rice Suspended Two Games By NFL for Domestic Violence Arrest

Ray Rice rest for domestic violence. Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The six-year veteran was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer. The 27-yearold Rice has been accepted into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being expunged. Rice met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after joining the diversion program. Goodell ultimately decided to suspend the running back for two games without pay and fine him an additional game check "for conduct detrimental to the NFL in violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy." Rice’s suspension will begin on Aug. 30. He will be eligible for reinstatement Sept. 12 after the Pittsburgh game. Rice may participate in all aspects of training camp and preseason games.

STANFORD, Calif. — Serena Williams finally realized what happened days later, when she was allowed to get out of bed. Williams said she was barely aware of how sick she was as she tried to play through a viral infection that caused her to lose equilibrium during a women’s doubles match with sister Venus at Wimbledon. It was only later, when she was able to clear her head, that she realized the seriousness of her situation. “It was interesting and I was scared after,” Williams said. “I didn’t realize how I felt until later. In the moment I didn’t realize how sick I was. It’s weird but that’s the fight in me. I never know when to say when.” She would have contin-

ued had not Venus insisted she get off the court. “She kept saying, ‘Walk off the court, I’m the older sister and I say you have to leave,’” Williams said. “I’m feeling really good right now and I’m happy to be here.”

Williams said she will undergo a series of tests at the end of the season. “I was really ill,” she said. “I got to thinking about a lot of things and because of family history, I’ll get the tests done and we’ll go from there.” Williams apparently expected to play in Bastad the following week until her mother nixed the idea. Doctors wouldn’t let her leave her room, so she got some much-needed rest before resuming a full schedule that included a working vacation and a movie shoot. Williams maintained that after three days in bed, she had already moved on and stopped thinking about it. She also ignored Internet rumors.

Former NFL coach Tony Dungy the Rams. “I wouldn’t have taken him,’’ Dungy told Tampa Tribune reporter Ira Kaufman. “Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it." "It’s not going to be totally smooth," Dungy also told the Tribune. "Things will happen." The comments by

Dungy, who advocated for teams to give Michael Vick a second chance to return to the NFL after the quarterback served time in prison for his involvement in running a dogfighting ring, appeared in an article published by the Tampa Tribune. They sparked controversy and earned him the title of the "World's Worst Person In Sports" on Keith Olbermann's ESPN2 program. "Thank God he wasn't St. Louis Rams' coach," Sam responded with a laugh, via NFL.com. "But I have a great respect for Dungy, and everyone in America is entitled to their own opinions." Rams head coach Jeff Fisher also addressed Dungy’s comments during an appearance on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike” radio show. He stated that Sam was “absolutely not” a distraction for his football team.

Michael Sam is 'Absolutely Not' a Distraction for Rams But Tony Dungy is Becoming One

By Chris Greenberg Former NFL coach Tony Dungy vaguely claimed that "things will happen" when explaining why he would not have drafted openly gay football player Michael Sam. What he didn't say at the time was that one of those things would, apparently, be Tony Dungy. The former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who is currently an NBC analyst, drew attention to himself and Sam as the St. Louis Rams were preparing to get training camp underway for the upcoming season with comments to the Tampa Tribune.

Shave Strokes off Your Golf Game -- Without the Eraser

(NewsUSA) - "To shave strokes from your golf game, the only equipment you need is a good eraser." Although this phrase is uttered jokingly by many golfers, recreational golfers who've reached their plateau have had very few other options, until now. "If recreational golfers insist on following the rules used by the PGA Tour, there's little they can do to immediately improve their game," says John Hoeflich, executive director, of the United States Recreational Golf Association (USRGA). "However, if they play by USRGA rules, they do have the option to switch to better equipment." The USRGA is the official organization that governs recreational golf. Its rules allow the use of higher-performance golf equipment. Hoeflich estimates that more than half of U.S. golfers agree with the USRGA rules that permit equipment that "puts fun back in the game, speeds up play and helps achieve better scores." Callaway Golf started the recreational equipment

Recreational golfers have options to improve their golf game. movement in 2000 with the ERC II driver. Now Polara Golf is advancing the movement with its Advantage driver and Ultimate Straight golf balls -- both engineered to eclipse the PGA limits, which means you can't play them in the Masters or U.S. Open. David Felker, chief technology officer for Polara Golf, explains, "Our drivers and balls are not intended for the top amateur players and professionals. We purposely designed equipment that

exceeds the performance limits accepted by the PGA Tour, so that recreational golfers can experience less frustration, score lower and have more fun." A 2012 Google consumer survey revealed that 63 percent of respondents would consider using golf equipment that provides a performance advantage. This sentiment is shared by the PGA of America president, Ted Bishop, who says, "I think anything we can do to relax the rules, if it means putting non-conforming equipment in the hands of players that enable them to hit the ball higher and farther and enjoy the game more -- what's the problem?" According to the National Golf Foundation, golf rounds have fallen by 8 percent since 2007, largely due to the frustrations of the game, excessive play times and high costs. "The technology now exists to make golf more pleasurable for everyone," says Felker. "Who doesn't want to have more fun?" For more information, visit www.polargolf.com and www.usrga.org.

By Jason Alderman For many people, their biggest expenses in life are funding retirement, buying a home and paying for their children's college education – or a portion of it, anyway. Setting aside money for these and other financial goals is difficult, especially when you're trying to save for them all simultaneously and from a young age. One of the more popular college savings vehicles is the 529 College Savings Plan. Every state and Washington, D.C. offers at least one 529 plan option, although most offer several. Key features include: • You make contributions using after-tax dollars; their investment earnings grow tax-free. • Withdrawals aren't taxed if they're used to pay

The Ins and Outs of 529 College Savings Plans

By Paul Netter Don’t swim with shocks. It’s a nice play on words in a Consumer Product Safety Commission fact sheet, but there’s nothing nice about the hidden dangers it warns of in and around swimming pools with the summer in full swing. The spring electrocution of a 7-year-old boy in his family’s Miami swimming pool is a tragic worst-case example, but another non-fatal Miami accident where three children were badly shocked is instructive as well. Faulty pool lighting and bad wiring, respectively, are suspected in both accidents. In fact, underwater lights and their wiring are the greatest potential electrical hazards inside a pool since it can’t be said enough that water and electricity don’t mix. A pane of glass and a rubber seal are often swimmers’ only protection from electrical wiring. Any water inside the un-

These risks are only heightened if lighting and circuits aren’t protected by Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs). And older pools may not only have degraded lighting fixtures, but also may not have

GFCIs on underwater lighting circuits.

State News L.A. Mayor Accepts Michelle Obama's Water Challenges Discussed at Roundtable Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness Hosted by Assemblymember Brown

By Robbie Couch Los Angeles is the latest major U.S. city to set a bold goal regarding veteran homelessness: It wants to end it within the next two years. Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the city's plan at the Unite for Veterans Summit alongside the first lady, accepting Michelle Obama's challenge to rid L.A. of veteran homelessness within the next 17 months, the L.A. Times reported. The mayor's ambitious objective won't be easy to achieve. Not only do aspiring actors gravitate toward the City of Angels, so do homeless veterans -- L.A. County has more homeless vets than any other county in the nation, at 6,300. But

the first lady affirmed Los Angeles can count on her husband's administration to make the goal a reality. "The image of even one of these heroes sleeping out in the cold, huddled up next to an overpass -- that should horrify all of us," Mrs. Obama, who attended the summit, told the crowd,

according to the L.A. Times. "Because that’s not who we are. And the truth is, we know that there are simple steps that we can take -- whether that’s in business or government or in our communities -to prevent and solve these kinds of problems." HOMELESS, See page 12A

Two California women have sued a Ventura County psychiatric hospital and its clinical director, saying that the therapist was sexually inappropriate while the women were patients. They also allege that hospital administration knew about their allegations, but did nothing to stop the abuse. In 2013, both women were in inpatient care for eating disorders at Pacific Shores Hospital in Oxnard and were under the care of marriage and family therapist Daniel Rozdial. According to the lawsuits, Rozdial began acting in a sexual manner with both women soon after their admission.

When the husband of one of the women complained to hospital administrators, the woman was prematurely discharged from the program. Because no one complained on behalf of the second woman, Rozdial ultimately had sex with her. Pacific Shores Hospital is a 30-bed facility that deals exclusively with patients suffering from eating disorders. Rozdial is no longer employed at Pacific Shores, but still sees patients in his private practice in Simi Valley. “Patients with eating disorders often have a history of trauma and boundary violations and are therefore among the most

vulnerable psychiatric patients,” said attorney and licensed psychologist Dr. Joseph C. George, who represents both women. “The administration of Pacific Shores knew this, but did nothing to stop or control Rozdial when they knew his behavior was against the law and damaging to their patients. That is reprehensible.” George also said that his clients would request that anyone who saw, suspected, or suffered sexual harassment and abuse by Daniel Rozdial contact the Board of Behavioral Services Senior Investigator, Scott Vredenburh at 818885-2000.

SAN BERNARDINO - Key water district leaders gathered for a meeting hosted by Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) on Tuesday, July 22, to discuss the Inland Empire’s priorities for the state’s upcoming water bond measure. Meeting attendees included San Bernardino County leaders as well as directors and general managers from the Fontana Water Company, Cucamonga Valley Water District, San Bernardino Municipal Water District, West Valley Water District, Inland Empire Utilities Agency, Colton Public Utilities and Rialto Water

Services. “When I go back to Sacramento, I’ll have to vote on a bond to be placed on the November ballot. I want to know how the bond is going to affect the Inland Empire so I can fight for our specific needs,” said Assemblymember Brown. Currently, there are four water bond bills circulating throughout the legislature: AB 1331, which proposes an $8.2 billion bond; SB 848, amended from a $10.5 billion bond to a $7.5 billion bond; AB 2686, a $10.25 billion bond; and SB 1250, a $10.15 billion bond. “The consensus in Sacramento is that an $11 billion water bill is too bloat-

Act, legislation sponsored by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) that designates the Distinguished Flying Cross Memorial at the March Field Air Museum in Riverside, California, as a national memorial to recognize members of our Armed Forces who have distinguished themselves by heroism in aerial flight. "I applaud the President for signing this bill to designate the Distinguished Flying Cross Memorial in Riverside as a national memorial," Senator Boxer said. "This new memorial is an important way to recognize and honor the service of courageous military aviators in California and the United States." The bipartisan legislation was introduced in the House by Representatives Ken Calvert (R-CA-42) and Mark Takano (D-CA41). Senator Boxer introduced the bill in the Senate with Senators Dianne

Feinstein (D-CA) and Bill Nelson (D-FL), and it was successfully voted out of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources in May 2013. The House passed the legislation by voice vote in October 2013, followed by its passage in the Senate by unanimous consent on July 10, 2014. The Distinguished Flying Cross - the oldest military aviation award created by Congress - is given to Americans who have performed acts of "heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight." Since Congress established the award in 1926, tens of thousands of Americans have received the honor, including Wilber and Orville Wright, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, former President George H.W. Bush, Senator John McCain, former Senator John Glenn, Chuck Yeager, General Jimmy Doolittle and Admiral James Stockdale. More recently, the award has been given to a number of American men and women who have served our nation in Iraq and Afghanistan. The legislation has the support of the Distinguished Flying Cross Society, the Military Officers Association of America, the Air Force Association, the Air Force Sergeants Association, the Association of Naval Aviation, the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association and the China Burma Indian Veterans Association.

National News Pregnant Woman Allegedly Put Gun Violence May Cost America's in Chokehold By NYPD Officer Most Famous Mayor His Job

By Emily Thomas A New York City police officer allegedly placed a 27-year-old pregnant woman in a chokehold Saturday after she was accused of illegally grilling in East New York, Brooklyn. The incident was captured on camera. Photos first published by the New York Daily News appear to show an unidentified member of the New York City Police Department wrapping his arms around Rosan Miller's neck and upper torso as her daughter watches nearby.

It's been another violent summer in Chicago. More than 80 people were shot, 16 fatally, over the Fourth of July holiday weekend -- the bloodiest weekend of 2014. In the two weekends that followed, a total of 76 people were shot, eight fatally. Victims included 11-year-old Shamiya Adams, whose family is raising money for a funeral after the girl was killed by a stray bullet July 18 while making s'mores during a sleepover at a friend's house. Shamiya didn't make it to sixth grade. Police charged an 18-year-old in Shamiya's slaying, saying he fired aimlessly into a building to avenge a young friend's

Rahm Emanuel beating in a fistfight. As the toll of the bloodshed mounts, there are indications it may spread to Mayor Rahm Emanuel's re-election, according to experts.

Two polls this month show Emanuel's approval far below potential challengers. The headlines practically wrote themselves: "Rahmbo" is in trouble. News coverage of Emanuel's poll plunge failed to note that the survey showing the worst news for the mayor was conducted following the bloody Fourth of July weekend. The city's violence, back in the national spotlight two years after some news outlets incorrectly called Chicago America's "murder capital," is a major factor in Emanuel's unpopularity, according to Dick Simpson, a University of IllinoisChicago political science MAYOR, See page 12A

Judge Tracie Hunter of the juvenile court system of Hamilton County, Ohio voters by sending them to the wrong booth. Hunter encountered more resistance even after she had proven herself as

the rightful winner of the election. Within her first two months on the bench, Hunter became the target of over 30 lawsuits filed against her by The Cincinnati Enquirer (the city’s largest newspaper and supporter of Hunter’s opponent in the elections), the Hamilton County Prosecutor, the Hamilton County Commissioner’s Office, the Hamilton County Public Defender’s Office, and WCPO-TV. These attacks on Hunter have since culminated in nine felony charges, resulting in her removal from the bench only 18 months after taking her seat. Even those who had supported her soon found themselves on the wrong side of the law. JUDGE, See page 12A

Man is Suing Pizza Restaurant for $260,000

Newport, DE — Back in 2010, a man named Nigel Sykes recently tried to rob Seasons Pizza restaurant in Newport, Delaware, but employees tackled him, took his gun, and beat him up. Now he is suing the restaurant for his injuries, and he’s doing it from jail. Now 23-years old, Sykes has just filed a federal civil complaint claiming that the rough treatment was “unnecessary”. He also says that because of his incurred injuries during the attempted robbery, he wants to be compensated. He also claims in his suit that after employees subdued him, two local police officers improperly used their stun guns on him and denied him access to medical attention. In his written complaint, Sykes admits committing the robbery and “displaying” a handgun. He then goes on to explain: “All of the Season’s Pizza employees participated in punching, kicking and pouring hot soup over my body. I was unarmed and defenseless and had to suffer a brutal beating by all of the employees of Seasons Pizza.” “It is a joke lawsuit,” said Newport Police Chief Michael Capriglione. “It is

Nigel Sykes sad to see this kind of suit being looked at. The court shouldn’t waste the taxpayers’ money.” But U.S. District Judge Sue L. Robinson is allowing the case to move forward. Sykes filed his lawsuit from prison where he is serving a 15-year sentence for both robbery and attempted robbery. He wants to be compensated more than $260,000. He is demanding $20,000 from each of the six restaurant employees, $20,000 from each of the two arresting officers and $100,000 from the restaurant itself. On a side note, at the time of his arrest back in 2010, police said that Sykes was linked to nearly 10 other robberies including a bank, other pizza restaurants, a couple of fast food restaurants, and at least two convenience stores.

Cincinnati, OH — As the first African-American woman and the first Democrat to ever become a judge in the juvenile court system of Hamilton County, Ohio, Tracie Hunter had high hopes of changing the system for the better. Unfortunately, her efforts have been sidetracked by an onslaught of personal and professional attacks designed to discredit her and undermine her authority. Hunter won her seat after a heated court battle and numerous appeals in which voter suppression was suspected. Inevitably, the county was required to count more than 800 votes from majority black precincts when it was found that poll workers were responsible for disqualifying

Black Businesses are Booming in Brazil Ellie Mae’s Self-service Mortgage Platform Targets ‘Tech-savvy’Borrowers

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — Nearly 80 percent of Brazil’s new members of the middle class are Black, according to a recent report from TheRoot.com. Apparently, these Afro-Brazilians are benefiting hugely from a great economy and a government program that aims to reduce income inequality. Black Brazilians’ income has grown by more than 100 percent According to the Brazilian government, the country’s middle class has grown by nearly 40 percent in the last 10 years alone. This has allowed the incomes of black Brazilians to also grow by as much as 123 percent between 2000 and 2012. Naturally, this has allowed many of these middle class newcomers to fund and start their own businesses. Adriana Barbosa, an

Afro-Brazilian entrepreneur, comments, “It is a highly promising segment. Today people self-declare as black, and … there is entrepreneurial opportunity. The market needs to see this population. There are few companies developing products specifically for blacks.” In order to help the cause, Barbosa created a very successful annual cultural fair that allows hundreds of black exhibitors to showcase their various products and services. Since 2002, it has helped thousands of entrepreneurs get their start. The good news According to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, there was a 29 percent growth in entrepreneurship among blacks in Brazil from 2001 to 2011. Even more, such an economic and entrepreneurial boom has apparently cre-

ated a new level of Black pride in the country. On the 2010 census, for example, millions of Brazilians of African ancestry started identifying themselves as “preto” or “black” - something that they were in denial about in the past. The not so good news However, Black business owners still earn less than half as much as their white counterparts. They also have fewer years of education, and have less access to technological resources like telephones and computers. They also have, like most Blacks around the world, difficulty getting access to capital. Afro-Brazilian businesses are also generally much smaller, and just 8 percent have actual employees. In addition, most of the businesses offer services in the fields of construction, agriculture and cosmetology.

Four Tricks for Creating a Winning Corporate Culture

If you’re the CEO of a company, the realization that much of what you do can be copied by your competitors may be distressing, but veteran sales manager, consultant and business speaker Jack

Daly says not so fast. “Sure your competition copy what they can, but there are two things they can’t: your people and your culture,” says Daly, author of “Hyper Sales Growth,” (www.jackdaly.net).

Jack Daly “I specialize in corporate coaching and sales, the latter of which really counts on the talent and sustained motivation of the sales force. Even your best salesperson needs that extra shot from time to time, and the best way to ensure a driven team is to create a culture that fosters the results you want.” • Start new hires on a Friday – and with a big welcome. Many managers think new employees should start on Monday – the day when their new co-workers are facing a long to-do list for the week. Consider starting them on Friday, when the office is a bit looser. Also – how about throwing the new hire a welcoming party? Many offices hold going away parties for departing employees, but it makes more sense to put this enthusiasm toward the person with whom you’re making a commitment, rather than the person who’s no longer working for you. • Recognize accomplishments by putting it in writing – handwriting. Typing emails and instant messaging is clearly much more convenient, which is why an employee who deserves special attention will recognize the extra effort behind a hand-written note.

By Blanche Evans When your home is marked down from its original price, it's a sure sign that your marketing plan failed. Not only have you missed the critical first two weeks when buyers and real estate professionals are most interested, but there's no way for your home to compete with other homes that are better priced. No one wants to waste time trying to deal with an unreasonable seller, so lowering the price may not help as much as you may think. Buyers may think something is wrong with the home, or they may decide that there's room for even more discounts. Real estate professionals won't get excited when your agent relists your home at a lower price because it's not a new listing. If you're really ready to sell your home, don't test the market. The best thing for you to do is to price it right in the first place and then sell as close to the original asking price as possible. For the best results, price your home at

current fair market value -- not where prices were in 2005, or where they might be in 2015. Current fair market value means your home favorably compares to recent listings and closed sales of homes most similar to yours in size, finishes, amenities and location. It also means your home is on target with price trending. If homes are dropping in price in your area, you may want to set your original price under current fair market values in order to generate more interest from buyers. If prices are trending upward, stay current

- don't price ahead. That only works in the strongest sellers' markets when banks are more comfortable about rising prices. Next, make sure that buyers see your home in the best light. Among real estate professionals, the most important considerations is how your home looks from the curb and how it looks online. First impressions require that you spend particular time and attention on curb appeal, from keeping your walks and drives swept, to painting the front door a fresh new color, to putting out a new welcome mat.

Download These Apps First

By Les Christie NEW YORK - From enabling us to virtually walk through an open house to instantly learning about the social scene in a neighborhood we're thinking about moving to, a new generation of apps and other technologies are taking the real estate shopping experience to the next level. "There's been a revolution in innovation," said Alex Perriello, CEO of Realogy Franchise Group, which sponsored a conference last month showcasing several new real estate technologies. Matterport, of Mountain View, Calif., recently unveiled 3D Showcase, which produces high-quality, 3-D images of homes that can be embedded in online listings. Users can virtually walk room-toroom, behind sofas, around beds and past corners. Then, at a click of a button, walls peel away revealing a photographic image of the house with all the spaces exposed. The

3D image can be rotated, turned and zoomed in on. Matterport's CEO, Bill Brown, said that until now, listing sites usually contained slideshows of photos but, "There was no context to the space as a whole." Furniture can be erased, leaving empty space behind. Or, it can be replaced with other furniture to re-stage rooms. Homebuyers can see what the place would look like after they buy it and put in the sofas, chairs and table they choose. Meanwhile, to avoid crowded open houses where you can't get an answer to your questions, or agents who are unfamiliar with the property, a company called BrightDoor is offering Beamly. It uses small Bluetoothenabled devices located throughout the home to send home shoppers information via their mobile phones or other devices. When a buyer goes into the kitchen, for example, they can learn more about the appliances or wood cabinet

options available to them. With Boston-based CO Everywhere, users with Bluetooth-equipped mobile devices can draw boundaries around interactive maps of neighborhoods they are looking to move into and the site will display an array of local social media content from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook from that area. It also posts local Meetup events and deals and coupons from local businesses through sites like YipIt. Zumper, which specializes in rentals, has produced the Zumper Pro app that enables agents to quickly create new online listings in a matter of minutes. Using their smartphones or tablets, agents can take photos, write descriptions and fill in details, such as the number of bedrooms, baths and square footage. Then, even before they leave the apartment, agents can post the listing online and send alerts to prospective renters with the app that a new place is on the market.

Spotlight on Health:

(NewsUSA) - Let's face it. For many people, getting older has less to do with chasing the almighty dollar, and more to do with enjoying special moments with friends and family. Highlighting this point is new research by AARP showing that many of America's baby boomers are choosing to celebrate personal milestones such as anniversaries, birthdays or family reunions by traveling rather than throwing a party or buying or receiving a piece of jewelry or other item. "Travel is the numberone aspirational activity for the boomer generation," says Sami Hassanyeh, AARP's chief digital officer, "We are seeing not just AARP members but also non-members who seem to prefer investing in a celebration vacation for their life's special moments." Currently, there are 76 million baby boomers in the U.S., and AARP (travel. aarp.org) aims to help this

By Alana Shakur Massage is often seen as a pretentious act designed for the elite and those who can afford the service, but massage is actually a form of therapy that releases toxic chemicals, tension and stress from the body that builds up over days and months of activity. Massages are actually more affordable than one would think, typically starting at $59 at facilities that are national chains and working their way up in price at hotels and spas. No matter where your budget is set, adding a bi-weekly massage to your health routine is highly recommended. Here are five healthy reasons why bi-weekly massage is necessary. Relieves tension Poor posture from sitting in chairs at desks all week, sleeping incorrectly, slouching while walking and holding on to stress can cause muscles to become tense and sore. One study found that patients who received weekly or bi-weekly massage had less stiffness and increased mobility. Bi-weekly massage can help with releasing tension that can make the body ache and allow more free movement in everyday walking and bodily function. Removes toxins from muscles On a daily basis, our bodies absorb many different chemicals through

process. It involves writing down (or sharing in a group) past life events as a way to bring to consciousness the different stages of our life and integrate any unresolved conflicts. 3. Develop your inner life: Carl Jung believed what healed patients in the second half of life was to cultivate a spiritual outlook. He recommended tools such as dream analysis and creativity. Journaling, prayer, or spending time in nature are also ways

to awaken those parts of the self that were not developed while we were building a career and constructing our social persona. 4. Simplify, simplify, simplify: As we age the desire to acquire is less and the need to scale down becomes stronger. That includes relationships, activities and feelings that are holding us back. This can be challenging which is why the inner work is so crucial; by paying attention to the inner messages and feelings we receive guidance for the journey ahead. Ultimately, aging well is about being authentic; discovering your own rhythm, making your own rules, going at your own speed. It's being flexible enough to change and grow but not feeling pressured to stay relevant and look youthful. So lean back, lean in, reach up, lie down and most of all love yourself where you are.

The Big Juicy Secret Nobody Tells You About Aging

It actually gets better as you get older. You get better. Life gets better. The merrygo-round slows down and you can finally enjoy the ride. I'm not going to tell you it's easy; especially in this economy. But it is possible as long as you're willing to do the work; the inner work. It's necessary to make peace with yourself, your past, and the whole process of aging. 1. Finding a purpose for this phase of life is essential: It doesn't have to be professional but we all need something that brings us joy and gives us a way to be in the world as an elder person. Finding something to devote our lives to is part of the great adventure as we age. 2. If you don't have a purpose then take some time to discover it: Ask yourself, if you died at this moment what would you regret not having done? A life review is a valuable

Drug Abuse:

Antipsychotics in Nursing Homes

By Jan Goodwin When Patricia Thomas, 79, went into a Ventura, Calif., nursing home with a broken pelvis, the only prescriptions she used were for blood pressure and cholesterol, and an inhaler for her pulmonary disease. By the time she was discharged 18 days later, she "wasn't my mother anymore," says Kathi Levine, 57, of Carpinteria, Calif. "She was withdrawn, slumped in a wheelchair with her head down, chewing on her hand, her speech garbled." Within weeks, she was dead. Thomas, a former executive assistant, had been given so many heavy-duty medications, including illegally administered antipsychotics, by the Ventura Convalescent Hospital in November of 2010 that she could no longer function. If one drug caused sleeplessness and anxiety, she was given a different medication to counteract those side effects. If yet another drug induced agitation or the urge to constantly

move, she was medicated again for that. "Yes, my mom had Alzheimer's, but she wasn't out of it when she went into the nursing home. She could dress and feed herself, walk on her own. You could have a conversation with her," says Levine. "My mother went into Ventura for physical therapy. Instead, she was drugged up to make her submissive. I believe that my mother died because profit and greed were more important than people." A Ventura County Superior Court judge agreed that Levine had a legitimate complaint against the nursing home. In May, attorneys from the law firm Johnson Moore in Thousand Oaks, Calif., joined by lawyers from AARP Foundation, agreed to a settlement in an unprecedented class-action suit against the facility for using powerful and dangerous drugs without the informed consent of residents or family members.

Tragically, what happened to Patricia Thomas is not an isolated incident. According to Charlene Harrington, professor of nursing and sociology at the University of California, San Francisco, as many as 1 in 5 patients in the nation's 15,500 nursing homes are given antipsychotic drugs that are not only unnecessary, but also extremely dangerous for older patients. The problem, experts say, stems from inadequate training and chronic understaffing, as well as an aggressive push by pharmaceutical companies to market their products. Fortunately, a growing number of nursing homes have begun to look for more effective — and more humane — ways to care for patients. According to Cheryl Phillips, M.D., a geriatrician at LeadingAge, an organization representing nonprofit services for older people, nursing home staff can be trained to deal with behavior issues thoughtfully and creatively, without resorting to drugs.

the skin, eyes and from the food we eat, and these chemicals seep into the muscles that can cause cramping and stiffness. Getting a massage biweekly can help to remove these impurities from the muscles and flush them out through the bowels and urine. Drinking lots of water after a massage is key. Reduces stress Long after stressful situations have passed, we hold the emotions in our body. Reflexology and massage techniques can help to relieve stress by releasing tension in various muscle groups and internal organs. Adding aromatherapy into the mix helps with relaxing the body and releasing stress from the sinus cavity. Promotes healthy cellular growth Massaging the skin and muscles helps with pro-

moting healthy cellular growth. Cells go through a cycle of dying and regenerating themselves in every part of the body, and massage helps to facilitate this process. Healthy cellular growth reduces one’s chances of contracting cancer. Promotes a healthy mental state When the body is relaxed the mind is relaxed and this is a great way to maintain mental health. By allowing the mind to drift into a state of meditation while in a massage session, you can ease into a state of relaxation that will usher in peace and tranquility. Participating in this type of activity bi-weekly will allow the mind to dump the garbage and debris of emotional baggage into the room and leave it there.

For all you chronic dieters and cardio enthusiasts out there trying to shed fat, the right strengthtraining program can boost your metabolism and help burn off more fat. Excessive cardio and dieting can eat

muscle tissue away, compromising this furnace. • Women: “But I don’t want to look like a man.” Females who lift weights won’t look like men; they do not have the hormonal support to pile on a significant amount of muscle mass. Female lifters will, however, assume a shapelier figure. MYTHS, See page 12A

Bodybuilder & Neurosurgeon Debunks Five Training Myths

Dr. Brett Osborn While big chunks of America’s population continue to be ravaged by obesity, causing other problems such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, there are many millions who choose to prevent those conditions by exercising regularly. “The Centers for Disease Control recently estimated that only 20 percent of us get the recommended amount of daily exercise,” says Dr. Brett Osborn, author of “Get Serious, A Neurosurgeon’s Guide to Optimal Health and Fitness,” www.drbrettosborn.com. “Given our diet and lifestyles, it’s no wonder that some of our first-world diseases have reached epidemic proportions. Osborn, an avid bodybuilder, shatters some of those misconceptions: • More exercise is always better. Everyone wants more muscle and less fat, Conventional wisdom says that hours and hours of exercise will achieve those results. That’s completely wrong, Osborn says.

Apple May Be Spying on You Through Your iPhone

By Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO Personal data including text messages, contact lists and photos can be extracted from iPhones through previously unpublicized techniques by Apple Inc employees, the company acknowledged this week. The same techniques to circumvent backup encryption could be used by law enforcement or others with access to the “trusted” computers to which the devices have been connected, according to the security expert who prompted Apple’s admission. In a conference presentation, researcher Jonathan Zdziarski showed how the services take a surprising amount of data for what Apple now says are diag-

nostic services meant to help engineers. Users are not notified that the services are running and cannot disable them, Zdziarski said. There is no way for iPhone users to know what computers have previously been granted trusted status via the backup process or block future connections. “There’s no way to `unpair’ except to wipe your phone,” he said in a video demonstration he posted showing what he could extract from an unlocked phone through a trusted computer. As word spread about Zdziarski’s initial presentation at the Hackers on Planet Earth conference, some cited it as evidence of Apple collaboration with the

National Security Agency. Apple denied creating any “back doors” for intelligence agencies. “We have designed iOS so that its diagnostic functions do not compromise user privacy and security, but still provides needed information to enterprise IT departments, developers and Apple for troubleshooting technical issues,” Apple said. “A user must have unlocked their device and agreed to trust another computer before that computer is able to access this limited diagnostic data.” But Apple also posted its first descriptions of the tools on its own website, and Zdziarski and others who spoke with the company said they expected it to make at least some changes to the programs in the future. Zdziarski said he did not believe that the services were aimed at spies. But he said that they extracted much more information than was needed, with too little disclosure. For all the attention to the previously unknown tools and other occasional bugs, Apple’s phones are widely considered more secure than those using Google Inc’s rival Android operating system, in part because Google does not have the power to send software fixes directly to those devices.

Vibrating Smart Shoes Tell You Where to Turn

settles, guys. Now shoes are getting even smarter. An Indian company called Ducere Technologies has created sneakers and insoles called Lechal that pair with an app and Google Maps to help you get from place to place. The shoe and insole are both connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth. You input a destination on the app and then as you walk around, your left or right shoe vibrates to show you which way to turn. You can either wear the sneakers, which come in red or black, or put the insoles in shoes you already have. The shoes and insoles were originally designed to help blind people navigate, in conjunction with a cane. As the company began to develop the shoes, it became clear that they could also have other uses. For every pair of footwear sold, Ducere will subsidize another pair for someone who is visually impaired. The shoes don’t just tell you where to go. They also serve as a pedometer and a calorie tracker. Shoes are “a natural extension of the human body,” the company’s cofounder and CEO, Krispian Lawrence, told the Wall Street Journal. You’d never forget to wear shoes, the way you might forget your phone or wallet at home, he says. The shoes and insoles will be available in September for around $100. They’re compatible with iPhones, Android and Windows phones. You can sign up to pre-order them now.

This App Sort of Blurs Your Face So You Can Share Your Deepest Secrets

By Alexis Kleinman If you have a secret and you want to confess it to the world semi-anonymously, try Awkward, a new app for creating, sharing and watching video confessions. The app, which was created in Germany, launched for iPhone on July 14. Here’s how it works: You record a video that’s up to 10 seconds long using your iPhone camera, decide how much to blur it, and then post it for people users to see. You can also watch other people’s videos on the app and rate them. It’s sort of like Whisper meets FMyLife.com meets Snapchat. We downloaded the app, and it can be sort of fun in a voyeuristic way. But many of the confessions are from people who seem to be quite young, which can be upsetting.

Nobody wants to watch a tween talk about having “crazy, monkey sex” with her boyfriend and then running into her parents. Yes, that’s a real confession I saw. It’s all just terribly uncomfortable. Tween confessions aside, there’s another important point to make about Awkward: Even if you blur your face the maximum amount, it’s still possible someone will recognize

you. Between your voice, your blurred face and the story you tell, it’s hard to say just how anonymous you might really stay. Plus, if you screenshot the video and put it in Photoshop, you can sharpen the images and make them even clearer. Maybe not being totally anonymous is part of the fun? Our advice: If you use this app, keep your confessions PG-13.

about the switch. Facebook first started talking about it in April. With 200 million Facebookers chatting every month, messaging is one of the most popular activities on the social network. So what’s the wisdom behind slicing the app into two? The answer, as is the case with so many of

Facebook’s decisions, is that the additional app will get you to spend more time with Facebook and, in turn, give it more information about you. Facebook decided to make the change after finding earlier this year that people in Europe responded 20 percent faster to messages on Messenger than they did through the site’s flagship app, Facebook told HuffPost. They also sent more photos, videos, stickers -- basically, everything -- if they had Messenger. An app built specifically for messaging, according to Facebook’s thinking, is just better to use. All those extra sent messages only feed the data monster, making it easier for Facebook to show you ads you’ll be interested in. The dual-app approach also means it’s more likely you’ll have at least one Facebook-owned app open on your phone at any time.

Facebook Just Killed One of Its Main App's Most Popular Features

By Dino Grandoni Facebook is betting you love talking to your Facebook friends so much that you’ll download an entirely separate app for the privilege. In a matter of days, people will no longer be able to use the Facebook app on their iPhone or Android phone to message friends. To do so, they’ll have to download an entirely different app called Messenger, the company said. The app has been around since 2011. The company is in the process of notifying Facebook users of the switch, a spokesperson told The Huffington Post. Some people got an email asking them to download “a free app that’s faster and more reliable for everyday messaging.” On the Facebook app itself, a friendly little otter is prodding people to download Messenger.

Walter Fields ginalization in society and the degree to which they are a criminalized class. There is no benefit of the doubt, no reasonableness, no dialogue – just force and upon the slightest protest on our part, violence and probable injury or death. We need to be clear and unambiguous about Eric Garner’s death in the larger context of the suppression of Black males. What is experienced by Black males on a daily basis is seldom the experience of White males, and cannot be fathomed by Whites in general. White mothers do not have to counsel their sons on their behavior should they encounter police or worry when their sons step out their door whether they will be a victim of police violence. Even in the most extreme situations when White males are the perpetrators of violent crime, police are in apprehend mode and not in pursuit with deadly intent. Eric Garner was lynched. He is the most recent case in a gigabyte file of such cases. I have yet to see the movie “Fruitvale Station” because I know how difficult it will be to see the reenactment of the killing of Oscar Grant. It cuts too close to home because I remember the killing of

15-year-old Phillip Pannell by a White Teaneck N.J. police office in 1990. The boy was shot in the back with his arms raised in surrender mode. The White police officer, Gary Spath, was acquitted by an allWhite Bergen County jury. The acquittal came amidst a massive police march through the community in support of the officer. That’s the other piece of this ongoing horror show; the closing of the ranks of the blue fraternity and the perpetual denial on the part of law enforcement that these episodes are not the end result of racist intent. Eric Garner was a victim of racism. The New York City Police Department is not alone in perpetuating crimes against Black males or operating in a way to violate the civil liberties of Black people. The NYPD just happens to be the largest police force in the country and has perfected the art of police abuse. Last week, the federal government announced the monitoring of GARNER, See page 12A

being merchandised by the liberals. Why do I say that? For many years liberals have taken the black community for granted. If you are black you are expected to be a democrat and to consistently vote for liberal causes. Even though the majority of blacks believe in God, they are for traditional marriage and are pro-life, they still overwhelmingly support the Democrat Party. In 2008 and in 2012, approximately 95% of African Americans voted for Barack Obama and the Democrat Party. Before moving forward I want to clarify; I am not, nor have I ever, been a Republican. This is not necessarily about political parties but about ideology. I use the labels of Democrats and Republicans because those are the two belief systems most clearly defined by the two-party system in America. The ideology that I am focusing on is the socially conservative belief system most associated with Christian beliefs; that being marriage between one man and one woman, pro-life, and freedom of religion. Sadly enough, although most black people openly declare that they support these beliefs, their ideologies have become disconnected with

their political affiliations. There is a shift happening; more and more people of color are waking up and coming out of the mental plantation of liberalism. They are recognizing that liberal causes are not only in opposition to what their deeply rooted morals and values dictate, but overwhelmingly we see the deep destruction that the liberal platforms of fatherlessness, godlessness, and entitlement programs being pushed by the liberals are literally destroying the black community. Black America has the highest incarceration rate, the highest rate of fatherlessness, and the lowest mortality rate of all racial groups in the US. Liberalism and godlessness has run its course for the people of color in the US! On August 16 in Hershey PA there is a movement starting. It is a movement to turn the nation back to conservative values. It is a call to stand for Biblical Marriage, for pro-life and religious freedoms.

who have been helped to by CFPB’s supervisory actions. The irony is that despite these positive results, the 113th Congress has continued to propose a series of bills all designed to dilute the power and effectiveness of the CFPB. From changing CFPB’s governance to a multi-member commission, or revoking its independent, the antiregulation players are still at work and according to Open Secrets, have donated nearly $248 million to anti-regulatory candidates. In many ways, these are the same failed arguments that were made at the height of the nation’s housing crisis and the advisability of reform. The Bureau’s anniversary comes at a time of increasing partisan divides. Two separate reports offered diverging views on Dodd-Frank and CFPB. While one stressed that the legislation failed to end ‘too big to fail’, the other extolled the resulting efforts to protect consumers from unfair and deceptive practices and products that led to the 2008 crisis. In a CNBC interview, the two former public servants whose names were added to the historic legislation, Barney Frank, former House Financial Services Committee Chair, and

A few years ago, I was confronted with a very interesting question. I was doing an interview concerning my opposition to gay marriage. One of the callers, who if I had to guess is like myself, an African American, said to me “I am surprised that, as a black man, you are against same sex marriage”. It took me a couple of seconds to let this process; what exactly do you mean by this? Was my question to the caller; although he couldn’t articulate exactly what he meant, the implication was clear. What the caller was trying to suggest was that there is a connection between being black and being gay. This is one of the many deceptions that have been perpetuated against blacks and other minority groups for some time. To equate homosexuality with race is absurd; yet more and more blacks have fallen for this. Although the Democrat Party was the party that started the KKK and the Republican Party the party of Lincoln and the Party of Sojourner Truth, Carter G Woodson, and Mary McLeod Bethune to name a few; yet if you are black and a conservative you are considered “not black enough” or a “sellout”. The narrative is clear, black America is

Beyond the Rhetoric:

In Four Years, CFPB Returns $4.6B to 15 Million Consumers Yet Public Debate Continues In recent days, many policymakers and analysts have noted the July 21 anniversary of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). This day marks the anniversary of President Obama signing the historic Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act into law. The cornerstone of the law’s reform was the creation of a new bureau dedicated solely to ensuring that when it came to financial services, consumers would have a cop-on-the-beat, fighting for and ensuring transparency and fairness. CFPB has vigorously pursued its mission. In celebrating the anniversary, the Bureau announced that $4.6 billion has been returned to 15 million consumers. And here are four more consumer victories thanks to CFPB actions: 1. First-time federal protections and oversight for 30 million consumers involved in abusive debt collection and another 12 million consumers who use payday loans; 2. 2.8 million unique visitors to its web, where information and complaint forms are available; 3. $150 million in civil penalties ordered as a result of enforcement actions against businesses that violated consumer laws; and 4. 775,000 consumers

Should Black Americans Be Liberals?

The Lynching of Eric Garner It was one of the most difficult scenes in Spike Lee’s classic movie “Do the Right Thing,” the brutal strangulation of peaceloving Radio Raheem by New York City police in a Brooklyn pizza shop. That scene touched a raw nerve as it recalled the 1983 death of 25-year-old graffiti artist Michael Stewart, another choke-hold victim of the New York City Police Department. Now, we find ourselves enraged over the police killing of Eric Garner in Staten Island, which was captured on cell phone video as a police officer puts him in a choke hold, with the man pleading that he can’t breathe. Garner was taken away unconscious and later pronounced dead. Another day in America. Let me be clear – Eric Garner was lynched. He was brutally assaulted and choked to death by a police officer who, supposedly trained, abused his authority with deadly precision. It is not enough to state that the officer used deadly force because when it comes to Black males and police, there is a violent regularity that has persisted for decades. The manner in which Black men and boys are set upon by law enforcement is consistent with their mar-

Chris Dodd, former Senate Banking Committee Chair, reminded viewers of why major reform was needed. Noting the loss of $12 trillion in national wealth, 5 million homes foreclosed, taxpayer bailouts and more, Mr. Dodd remarked, “The carnage of the collapse of six years ago – we’re still paying a price for it – dearly.” “The point of the legislation was to bring stability to it [the system], modernize regulation so that we could have a 21st Century system and get us out of the shadow banking system”, Dodd continued. Speaking directly to the purpose of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Dodd added, “Have a consumer protection bureau that would give consumers with financial grievances some redress.” Concurring, Mr. Frank added, “The abusive mortgage loans that hurt consumers, hurt financial services and hurt the economy – we outlawed them and they haven’t been made CFPB, See page 12A

It reminds me of the classic Gone with the Wind. A young Scarlet O’Hara was standing in a field with her father. He picks up a handful of dirt and puts it in Scarlet’s hand and replies “Remember, it’s the land Scarlet. It won’t leave you. It can make you rich.” That is so heavy and very true. At the end of the movie Scarlet is down and out in Atlanta. Then she remembers that lesson and says to herself “I am going back to Terra (family farm). Yes, that’s what I will do.” Land, especially arable land, is potential wealth. For some reason our African nations don’t seem to understand this. We went on a trade mission to Kenya back in 2004. We were given a tour of a textile facility that was supplying Target, Walmart and JC Penney with children’s clothing. To my shock, I noticed all of the cotton which was piled high to the ceiling marked with “Product of China”. The day before we were approached by the Kenya Cotton Growers Association who were protesting about the lack of support the Kenya government was giving them. They were going broke because the textile plants like the one we were visiting were exclusively buying their cotton from China and In-

dia. It became clear to me. China was running its cotton through Kenya to the United States to avoid tariffs and a trade imbalance via AGOA credit. AGOA is the African Growth and Opportunity Act. We certainly supported this when it was going through legislation. But afterwards the textile lobby pushed for the “Third Country Fabric Provision”. This allows a nation from outside of Africa to participate in AGOA for fabric trade to the United States. It has been devastating to cotton farms throughout Africa. Nigeria once had a thriving fabric industry but now it is all but gone. AGOA was written by two white congressmen. But for this big trick they used a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Then for the Central American Free Trade Agreement the same CBC congressman put in an exception for Haiti to be in the deal. Immediately after that China puts a massive textile facility in Haiti. So now China is trading much textile fabric to the United States duty free – pimping off programs meant for underserved Black nations. Besides under the table money, why are these nations allowing this to happen? I think I just found the answer. An editorial by

Isaac Sebakijje solved the mystery. “Uganda Presidential Adviser Rose Zimulinda’s comment… pointed out how the 23rd Ordinary Summit of the Heads of State of the African Union was not excited about discussing agriculture.” “Sub Saharan Africa must stop viewing agriculture as a rudimentary activity. The current harsh reality of poverty can be traced back to lack of agricultural development. There is a misconception that the engines of growth lie outside of agriculture. Nonagriculture enterprises are supposedly the “more important” sectors. Multinational companies conserve more effort in absorbing the workforce in non-agriculture sectors to stimulate growth. It is simply faulty logic to conclude that promoting agriculture confines the poor in a poverty trap especially in East Africa where 75% of the workforce is engaged in agricultural activities.

WASTEWATER From page 1A Since these projects will affect a resident’s water rates, the goal is to replace older parts of the plant with new technologies that are more advanced and cost efficient, all in an attempt to keep utility rates as reasonable as possible. Rydberg explained that this new water treatment plan is the first in the department’s history to pull together “water quality evaluation for water, storm water, recycled water, waste water, all done together as one plan.” The benefit of this is significant. “You can coordinate all the quality aspects of water,” he said. “Since your waste water quality and your storm water quality affect your drinking water, a lot of the water is going back into the aquifers, and so you want to make sure all of those are coordinated.” In addition, with California in a severe drought, the public works department wants to make water conservation a high priority. “In middle of this drought in California, we want to make sure we’re conserving, but also using storm water and waste water and recycling it as much as possible so that we’ll increase water supplies,” he said. The good news is that the public works department is making progress on several fronts. A new headworks station was installed in 2008, and if all goes as planned, a new advanced water purification facility is scheduled to go online next spring. Rydberg believes another point for the tour is to show that, for all the work and expense that goes into treating water in Oxnard, its residents are getting a good deal. “For the cost of my cell phone bill,” he explained, “I can pay for water and wastewater that is the best quality in the world. Compared to other things, it’s a pretty good value.” PINNOCK From page 1A testimony from behavioral and mental health experts and law enforcement officials examining police protocols and procedures for interactions with mentally ill persons. “We are trying to make sure that folks are clear their government is responsive to the needs of those who are concerned about safety,” Ridley-Thomas told the Los Angeles Watts Times prior to the hearing. He explained that the community advocacy piece is the reason why the hearing was being held. “If it wasn’t for community groups of strong and engaged guidance such as Mr. Danny Bakewell in particular, then we would not be having this conversation,” Ridley-Thomas stated. Assemblymember RidleyThomas said, “What brings us here today is the July 1st beating of a woman who may have been suffering from a mental health episode or crisis and the series of events that led her to have a violent interaction with a California Highway patrolman. Our purpose today is to examine the entirety of the systems and structures in place within California to find the point where levels of law enforcement, persons with mental illnesses, and providers of mental health services intersect.” Assembly member JonesSawyer said, “We’ve spent the last two years trying to correct two generations of public policy that criminalized persons suffering from mental illness. It’s time for California to get smart about crime prevention, mental health intervention, and behavioral health rehabilitation,” said Assembly Member Jones-Sawyer. BLESSINGS From page 2A I dare you to go back and get your blessings. The great thing about God it’s never too late you can reclaim lost blessings. Maybe you didn’t go into the promise land the first time when you were SO CLOSE TO GETTING IN but this time your attitude needs to be; I’m going to get in, this time nobody is going to talk me out of my victory, no obstacle is going to defeat me, no sickness is going to hold me back, no disappointment is going to discourage me. What I lost in the past God can make up in my future so I’m going into that reclaiming mode. I am going to reclaim every lost opportunity. I am going to reclaim every blessing that I passed up. I am reclaiming every promotion that should’ve been mine. I am reclaiming the victory that people tried to talk me out of. If somebody carried away your blessing in the past well this is your New Day you can still live a life of victory. You can still accomplish every dream, you can still overcome that addiction you can still be happy in that marriage, you can still be a successful satisfied single, you can still live a blessed prosperous life it is never too late to become all that Gods created you to be.

WORKOUT From page 2A from your body to your brain, it’s best to treat pain directly through the subconscious. Shape Magazine (Feb 2003) cites a Harvard Medical School Study that found patients who used self-hypnosis needed less pain medication. Increasing tolerance to pain can also be helpful when fatigue is hindering your workout. As a bonus, hypnosis boosts the production of endorphins, the neurotransmitters in your body that suppress pain sensations. Imagery can also help you learn new skills more quickly, perhaps even preventing an injury. Often there is a limit on the amount of physical practice you can do, however, imagery allows you to go through the movement until you get it right. When you picture yourself succeeding, your mind becomes more comfortable with it. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between “reality” and what we imagine. Visualizing success boosts your confidence and helps you learn to believe in yourself. Let go of negative thoughts and fears. Think positive. Remember that your performance doesn’t come from any individual workout but from consistently effective workouts over a period of time. Focus on using good technique and having fun. Relax.

SLOW From page 2A training our kids are involved in and club teams to “help” them excel in their skills and abilities. But are we truly “helping” them? Have we forgotten why we put them on these teams? Most of us simply began wanting our child to learn a sport and have fun doing it. We wanted them to learn teamwork and work on their motor skills and then they loved the game. When did all of that change? When did we start adding so much pressure to it, so much so that we have taken the fun out of the love of the game? All of the planned and structured activities our children are engaged in has somewhat taken away from our youth’s creativity and ability to just “be”. Do they even know what to do when they are outside without some phone, game or gadget in their hand? Playing outside used to be so much fun when we were kids, but many of the youth of today do not have that luxury. Do they know how to create games and simply have unplanned fun? What happened to going to the park simply “to play?” When we were growing up, walking to the store with your friends used to be a lot of fun. That was the activity. You used to be able to give kids blank paper and crayons and it would keep them busy. They would draw, play tic-tac-toe, mash, mad libs, etc. These days they would like it all written out for them. When they don’t have something to look at or listen to it seems to drive this generation crazy. When I sit and think about it, it is scary. But it is we who are bringing them up this way. Are we so busy trying to get work done and accomplish so much that we are missing a lot? Are we so busy trying to make money that we are losing time with our family and loved ones? By the way, that is time that we won’t get back. Do we buy nice homes, nice cars and all of the latest gadgets but never have time to enjoy and use them? We live in such a fast-paced world that we have forgotten some of the simple pleasures of life. We live right here by the beach. When was the last time you took some time to simply be out there and enjoy it - to walk, to play, to sit, to get in the water, etc.? When was the last time you picked up the phone and had a meaningful conversation with someone - without doing other things at the same time (I.e. driving, texting, on social media, cooking)? When was the last time you sat and had dinner with your family without your phones, without the television on and without any electronics? Even though you live with your family members, do you really know them? Do you take the time to actually talk with them? You may spend more time at work than you do home; do you know your co-workers? We have come such a long way in the areas of knowledge and technological advancements. The knowledge we have access to is much more than it has ever been and is readily available 24 hours a day. With that “always available and accessible” culture has come an increase in require-

ments to “get ‘er done mentality” for almost everything. And although we are getting smarter, are we missing out on some important things? Do we know how to look people in the eye when talking to them? Do we know how to shake a person’s hand and greet them correctly? Do not be so busy doing that you miss out on living! Don’t be so smart that you miss being human. Don’t be so busy that you miss what’s really important. One of the perks of living in this county is we have the best weather. Appreciate the scenery in which you live. Take the time to enjoy it. Slow down and participate in the lives of your children while there is still time raising them. Be actively engaged in the lives of those who are important to you. Simply slow down. You will then be able to see, hear and experience more than you could have imagined.

COLLEGE From page 5A • You can rollover funds to a different 529 plan or change investment strategies once a year. If you want to do more than one rollover within a 12-month period, you’ll need to change the beneficiary in order to avoid taxes and penalties. (You can always change it back later.) • Contributions up to $14,000 a year, per recipient, are exempt from gift taxes ($28,000 for married couples). • You can also make a lump-sum contribution of up to $70,000 ($140,000/married couples) per beneficiary and then average the contribution over a five-year period without triggering the gift tax – provided you make no other gifts to that beneficiary for the next five years. • These plans are treated as an asset of the account owner (vs. the student) when calculating the expected family contribution toward college costs, so they have a comparatively low impact on financial aid eligibility. Most financial experts recommend looking first at your own state’s plan to see what tax advantages, if any, are offered to residents. They may be significant enough to offset lower fees or better fund performance in other states’ plans. Carefully examine the fee structure. Common fees include those for opening an account, annual maintenance, administration costs, and most importantly, sales commissions if you’re buying from a brokerage – which could be up to 5.75 percent of your contribution. Buying directly from the plan eliminates sales fees but puts the onus on you to research the best option for your needs. And finally, examine the investment performance of the funds, both when you enroll and periodically thereafter. Morningstar (www.morningstar. com), College Savings Plans Network (www.collegesavings. org) and FinAid (www.finaid. org) all have helpful comparison tools. Bottom line: The sooner you can start saving for college, the less your kids will have to rely on expensive loans. POOLS From page 5A Edison (SCE), which also offers a pool-pump rebate program to assist customers. “In addition to fixing any problems, that electrician should upgrade your pool, as well as your hot tub or spa, in accordance with local codes and the National Electrical Code.” GFCIs should also be used on pumps and electrical equipment, such as heaters, used with pools, spas and hot tubs and on all outlets within 20 feet of the water’s edge to protect people from shocks. These are all very important steps because there have been 60 electrocutions and nearly 50 serious electrical shocks in and around swimming pools in the U.S. since 1990, according to the safety commission. The commission said some of the deaths and shocks occurred during attempted rescues of shock victims because the rescuers were unaware of the electrical hazards. Another safe move is to have an electrician downgrade pool lighting from a potentially deadly 120 volts to 12 volts. The 120-volt lighting systems are particularly prevalent in older pools and GFCIs are recommended on any lighting system 15 volts or greater. “The lower voltage is simply less dangerous,” said Neal “In case of a broken glass or leakage into an underwater light, you should avoid having 120 volts introduced into your water. Landscape lighting should also be powered by a low-voltage system to prevent shocks on a rain-soaked lawn.” A well-ground power system is also very important since it

adds critical protection by guaranteeing that if something goes wrong, the power flows to the ground and not to those in the pool. “Pool owners should also make sure that electrical wires and junction boxes are a minimum of five feet away from water, as also required by the National Electrical Code,” said Neal. As for other hazards outside the water, a permanent or storable pool should never be built or set up underneath power lines (if this exists, there are clearance requirements, but pool owners should consult their local inspection agency). Long-handled cleaning tools also should be used away from power lines and electrical cords should be kept at least five feet away from the pool. Neal offers an additional warning on the electrical cords, suggesting that, “When possible, people should use battery-operated appliances and not cord-connected ones in and around a pool, spa or hot tub.” Meanwhile, pool owners should always have an emergency plan within view of pool users and power switches should be labeled for pool, hot tub and spa equipment and lighting so they can be turned off quickly during an electrical emergency. In addition, a fiberglass Shepherd’s crook should be used to remove any victims from the water, CPR should be administered and 911 should be called. As for rescuers not taking these precautions, they risk serious injury if they touch a conductive fixture or enter the water before the current is stopped. “Pool electrical accidents are easily prevented,” said Neal. “But pool owners must follow state-mandated codes, conduct proper inspection and maintenance and use qualified electricians to achieve that prevention.” CI From page 5A “This partnership engages students in complex science while also showing them that they can play an active and valuable role in saving their environment,” said CI’s Dr. Cause Hanna, Manager of the Santa Rosa Island Research Station, and one of the grant’s Principal Investigators. “We hope this will be a transformative learning experience that cultivates a new community of Channel Islands stewards and inspires more students to pursue disciplines like science, marine biology and natural resource management.” Learn more about NOAA’s B-WET program at http://www. oesd.noaa.gov/grants/bwet.

HOMELESS From page 6A The first lady’s challenge to mayors to tackle vet homelessness is part of the Obama administration’s larger plan to tackle the chronic issue nationally. Initiatives taken by the Obama administration have helped reduce veteran homelessness by 24 percent since 2010, the Department of Veterans Affairs announced last November.

Emanuel’s popularity also has been plagued by mass closings of public schools, largely in black and Latino neighborhoods, and “the general problem of the perceived arrogance and unwillingness to have citizens involved in making decisions about the city,” Simpson said. JUDGE From page 7A Vanessa Enoch and Cheri Franklin-Scott, doctoral students with Cincinnati’s Union

Institute & University, have completed a case study in which they highlight the racial injustices within Hamilton County’s juvenile system. They state that over 80% of the juveniles charged within Hamilton County are African American, and that they have been subjected to a school-to-prison pipeline. These are the same injustices which Hunter had tried to eradicate until she was forced from her position. Enoch and Franklin-Scott contend that the $30 million budget associated with Hunter’s position (the second largest budget in Hamilton County) was also a motivating factor in targeting her.

NYPD From page 7A has a “backlog” of chokehold complaints currently under investigation. The latest chokehold incident comes just over a week after Staten Island man Eric Garner died while being placed in a chokehold by a member of the NYPD. At the time, Garner was being arrested on charges stemming from illegal cigarette sales. A bystander captured the incident on video. TRICKS From page 8A • Provide lunch – for free. While many may cringe at the expense, employee appreciation outweighs the cost, Daly’s client says, and it keeps people engaged within the office, rather than having employees leave for lunch. • Flatten the privilege structure. It’s not a good idea to create anything resembling a class system, including special parking for upper management. Parking should be on a firstcome, first-serve basis. Upper management shouldn’t feel too entitled or privileged above other employees.

MYTHS From page 9A • You need to buy “product X.” We live in a very moneybased culture – so much so that we often place the almighty dollar above health. Get out of this mindset, at least regarding exercise. What counts for building muscle includes determination, intensity, consistency and safety. • CrossFit is a good exercise program. If you want to build muscle, then CrossFit has many problems. First, it encourages ballistic movements from novice lifters, and since the program’s rise in popularity, there has been a marked increase in injury rates, which can set fitness goals back by many months. Second, as mentioned above, you don’t need to pound the body five times a week; you may increase endurance and lose fat, but you’ll also lose muscle. GARNER From page 11A the Newark, N.J. police force, which for years residents lodged complaints against. Now, it has come to light that officers in New Jersey’s largest city are even suspected of stealing personal property from residents they detain. In Chicago, the former city police commander, Jon Burge, presided over a department that regularly brutalized citizens and he himself was alleged to have engaged in violence. He was convicted in 2010 for lying about the torture of police suspects. NYPD Chief Bill Bratton’s order that all officers undergo training on the proper techniques to apprehend suspects is too little in light of the brutality of Garner’s death. For starters, every officer on the scene should be dismissed. If officers sworn to uphold the law can witness a citizen being choked to death and not intervene, they are not capable of fulfilling their legal duty to protect and serve. The video clip clearly shows a man who was not confrontational, who was attempting to defuse the situation and was trying to communicate with the officers. He is taken down by the officers and then thrown to the

ground as an officer puts him in a deadly choke hold. Garner can be heard on the video pleading “I can’t breathe,” but his physical condition was of little concern to the officers who were intent on demonstrating that they were the dominant force. Eric Garner was lynched. Walter Fields is executive editor of NorthStarNews.com. LIBERALS From page 11A taking place in PA.

Instead of developing the agriculture sector through the use of AGOA, they are abandoning that opportunity. Get some under the table cash and buy a textile mill and run as much Chinese and Indian cotton as possible. Ship them duty free with “Made in Kenya” tags or whatever nation is perpetrating the scheme. Go to a Joseph Banks store and look at the men’s suits. Some will say “Made in Haiti” but that isn’t the whole story. The success of any nation starts with its agricultural base. There is a reason why the United States is the most powerful nation in the world. We have the most arable land. Our agriculture sector is the champion of the world and it feeds our other sectors. Africa has so much potential. Zimbabwe was once known as “The Breadbasket of Africa”. In a racist act they ran out the white owned farms. Now, Zimbabwe is one of the poorest nations on earth. There is plenty of arable land and if it realized its full potential Africa would have over 660 million acres of arable land. That is without irrigation! With a good infrastructure for irrigation they would double that. As cotton once made the South king, it can do the same for the nations of sub Saharan Africa. Leaders of Africa please get busy.

Universal Announces 2016 Date The Hardest Working Man in for ‘The Best Man’ Threequel Show Business Gets His Story Told

Malcolm D. Lee is back to write and direct the third film in the series, which Universal has titled and slated for April 15, 2016. The studio says the ensemble cast is returning for The Best Man Wedding, which features the group getting back together for a most unexpected nuptials. The previous film in the franchise, $17 million sequel The Best Man Holiday, was a hit right out of the gate, scoring a $30 million opening in November. It was the fifthlargest bow for an R-rated romantic comedy, the second-highest for an urban romantic comedy and the sixth-biggest for an urbanthemed film overall. It also received an A+ CinemaScore across all quadrants.

Just over a month after its June 19 Broadway premiere, Kenny Leon’s Tupac Shakur-inspired musical, “Holler if Ya Hear Me” announced its closing, sparking a number of questions about the production’s limited run. But the show’s cast reportedly foresaw this fate in the weeks leading up to their final show, according to star, Saul Williams. “We've known what was going on all along. Every day at rehearsal, Kenny Leon was saying, ‘Let's be very clear with the fact that this play is probably going to be hated coming out the gates,’" Williams admitted during an interview with Rolling Stone. “We see how full or empty the house is every night. Twenty-six thousand people have seen the play and, of those people, we've had f**king standing ovations every night and tremendous support from the people that have seen it. But the producer, Eric Gold, said to me, ‘We expect that the first two months are going to be really difficult.’"

By Joseph Erbentraut An Ohio music festival has found itself in a difficult position on the heels of its booking of controversial R&B singer R. Kelly as one of its headliners. The Fashion Meets Music Festival, slated for Aug. 29-31 in Columbus, Ohio, has run into a number of troubles since they announced that Kelly would be playing their inaugural fest alongside jam band O.A.R. and Destiny's Child alum Michelle Williams, among others. Earlier, two Ohio-based bands -- Damn the Witch Siren and Saintseneca -- have dropped out of the lineup since Kelly's booking was made public and Sunday Columbus Alive reported that radio station WCBE 90.5 FM has withdrawn from sponsoring the festival, also due to Kelly's previous addition to the lineup. As WBEZ's Jim DeRo-

On Monday, July 28, the festival announced they had “decided to part ways” with Kelly and canceled his concert. In a statement shared with HuffPost by the festival, a Kelly spokesperson said, “R. Kelly is sorry to disappoint his fans, but looks forward to seeing them in the near future during one of his upcoming tours.” In response to the criticism, Fashion Meets Music Festival co-founder Bret Adams had previously defended the booking to Columbus Alive, noting that Kelly was acquitted of the allegations in 2008, saying, “we’re not the morality police.” Kelly also headlined the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago last year, a booking DeRogatis lashed out against but which was not met by any bands or sponsors dropping out from the event.

R. Kelly gatis notes, ticket sales for the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer's previously-scheduled performance at the festival -- which started at $58.50 plus fees -- also appeared to be selling very slowly. The pushback stemmed from Kelly's past allegations of child pornography and sexual assault, a story DeRogatis helped break and Jessica Hopper detailed in a viral news story for the Village Voice in December 2013.

By Dwight Brown This much-awaited biofilm tells you some things you already knew: James Brown could sing the funk out of a song. It also shows you some things you might not have grasped: troubled boys grow up to be troubled men. Warts and all, in fits and starts, finally the Hardest Working Man in Show Business gets his story told. As the film unfolds, a young James Brown (Jordan and Jamarion Scott) lives with his mother Susie (Viola Davis) and his father Joe (Lennie James, Snatch) in a shack in backwoods South Carolina. Mom and dad have a torrid and abusive relationship. At a tender age, she abandons James. One day dad drops him off at his Aunt Honey’s (Octavia Spencer) whorehouse. James becomes a barker, driving customers to Honey’s house of prostitution. James can’t stay out of a trouble as a kid and as a teen (Chadwick Boseman, 42) his law-breaking ways get him a prison sentence. Behind bars he meets a gospel group headed by Bobby Byrd (Nelsan Ellis, True Blood). Before you can count, a-one-anda-two, Brown is paroled into Byrd’s home and he becomes the lead singer of gospel-turned-soul group

The Latest Update on Missy Elliott’s Long-Awaited Next Album output has been limited to feature appearances. In 2013, she had verses on Little Mix's "Without Me" and Fantasia's "I Deserve

It," and earlier this year she and Sharaya J, an artist signed to her the Goldmind Inc., rapped over Faith Evans' "I Deserve It."

Missy Elliott By Nick Murray It's been nearly a decade since Missy Elliott's last solo album, 2005's "The Cookbook," but Timbaland says a new one may be on its way. "It's coming," the rapper's longtime producer and songwriting partner tells Rolling Stone. "It's on her. She got the first single, it's just a matter of when she wants to do it. We got the hollow-tip bullet in the gun. We have the game-changer right there," he says, making the sound of a gun firing. Asked what that bullet sounds like, Timbaland remains vague: "It's something you ain't never heard Missy do. It sounds today, but the future." Despite their close relationship, the two artists work in an unusual way. "I've never watched her record, never in my whole career," he continues. "I do it, she be like, 'OK, I got it,' and I leave the room. She kicks us out. That's how she do it: She does everything herself." In 2012, Elliott released two new Timbaland-produced songs, "9th Inning" and "Triple Threat," but in the following years her

Prior to the tee times, prominent artist Emmy Lu, of Beverly Hills, displayed several his paintings in the clubhouse lobby. He donated some of his work that was sold during the auction. Prizes for the first place were awarded to winning teams based on lowest score of 15 under par, with three eagles along the way. The winning team consisted of players Kathleen Bradley, Cecil woods, Don Cobb and Scottie Wells. Second Place went to the team of Ken Fewer, Rashad Regard, Mike Bennett and Beyer. The third place team was Kirk Davis, Richard Singer, Mark Porter and Fernando Camberos. No one won the any of prizes for the Hole-In-One contest for the par 3’s. The grand prize was a 2014 Toyota Camry LE provided by DCH Toyota of Oxnard, one of the event’s sponsors. Closest-To-Pin for men

was won by Fernando Camberos on Hole 5, and Closest-To-Pin for women was won by Kathleen Bradley on Hole 7. Long Drive for Men was won by Kirk Davis and Long Drive Women was won by Kathleen Bradley the big winner of the day. The 17th Annual Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Scholarship Tournament was a great success and was co-sponsored by our 501(c)3 non-profit, Gold Coast Charities, Inc., of Oxnard.

Ventura County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Hosts Premiere Movie Night

Ventura County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Camarillo, CA --The ladies of the Ventura County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., hosted a red carpet premiere for

the movie Get on Up, the story of James Brown. The event was held at the Roxy Stadium 11, located at 50001 Verdugo Way on August 1.

In his follow-up to the four-time Academy Award®-nominated blockbuster, The Help, Tate Taylor directs 42’s Chadwick Boseman as James Brown.

Based on the incredible life story of the ‘Godfather of Soul’, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into

one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. Boseman is joined in the drama by Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott and Dan Aykroyd. The event was well at-

tended by Delta sisters, family and friends. All proceeds from the event will go towards the Ventura County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.’s scholarship fund and community service projects.

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.

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 $190,512.89 (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.

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 out-

standing 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.

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.

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.

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) 848-9272 or visit this Internet Web site www.elitepostandpub. com, using the file number assigned to this case 13-25931. 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.

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.

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.
