Golfer Don Cobb AG Harris and Legislative Leaders sinks hole-in-one Unveil Truancy Legislation SACRAMENTO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced a package of legislation to help local school districts and communities address California’s elementary school truancy crisis. Each year, an estimated one million elementary school students are truant and 250,000 elementary school students miss 18 or more school days at a cost of $1.4 billion in lost funds to California school districts. Joined by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, State Senator Bill Monning and Assemblymembers Raul Bocanegra, Rob Bonta, Joan Buchanan, Isadore Hall and Chris Holden, Attorney General Harris announced her sponsorship of five bills that will help schools, parents and government effectively intervene when children are chronically absent, and improve local school districts’ and counties’ ability to track attendance patterns. “California’s Constitution guarantees our children the right to an education, yet our elementary schools face a truancy crisis,” Attorney General Harris said. “When children in kindergarten through sixth

grade miss school, they fall behind and too many never catch up. The consequences for California’s economy and public safety are very serious. These bills modernize attendance monitoring and build the support schools, parents and communities need to get California’s children to class." The legislation will: • Assist schools and counties as they work with parents to address the core reasons behind truancy and chronic absence. • Provide local school

districts and counties tools to comply with attendance tracking requirements in the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), state truancy mandates and state and federal reporting requirements. • Modernize state and local systems to track and prevent truancy and chronic absence. • Ensure that schools, districts, counties and the state can evaluate the success of interventions to combat truancy and chronic absence.

“It is an honor to be able to partner with Attorney General Harris on SB 1107. We have long known the importance of early childhood education, and that full attendance of elementary school students is one of the keys to later academic success. By mandating the annual tracking and reporting by the Attorney General, we will be able to offer local school districts additional tools in tackling this very complex issue,” Senator Monning said.

By John P. Mello Jr. “Ransom” may elicit a vision of ships, pirates, and hostages. And while ransoms do take place in dangerous parts of the world, certain forms of ransoms are a lot closer to home. We’re talking about ransomware, malware that holds your computer for ransom and demands some amount of money, to be paid to “unlock” it. Nothing spurs malware development like success, and that’s likely to be the case in the coming months with ransomware. Ransomware has been around for about a decade, but it wasn’t until last fall, with the introduction of CryptoLocker, that the malevolent potential of the bad app category was realized. In the last four months of 2013 alone, the malicious software raked in some $5

million, according to Dell SecureWorks. Previously, it took ransomware purveyors an entire year to haul in that kind of money. So is it any wonder that the latest iteration of this form of digital extortion has attracted the attention of cyber criminals? A compromised personal computer for a botnet or Distributed

Denial of Service attack is worth about a buck to a byte bandit, explained Johannes B. Ullrich, chief research officer at the SANS Institute. “With ransomware, the attacker can easily make $100 and more,” he said. What distinguishes CryptoLocker from past ransomware efforts is its use of PC, See page 12A

Around the Tri-Counties So You Love God, But Hate the Church? Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan It’s a common statement in our generation people who say they “love God, but hate the church.” Or at least don’t feel very excited about the church. God seems cool. The local churches they’ve been to seem very boring. But the church is Gods’ bride according to the bible. Can you imagine telling your friend - you’re awesome, but I hate your wife, she’s boring and irrelevant to me. Really? That friendship would end fast. And while you may still feel how you feel -

your friend wouldn’t feel very liked at all, because you hated on the most important thing in their life part of their very flesh and soul, and the greatest joy in their life. Don’t get me wrong. Sometimes going to church is difficult, even painful. Here are some thoughts on why we must choose to love the church, if we claim to love God: 1. Its just two hours a week. While church is more than just about a weekly service, we are talking only 2 hours a week worshiping and listening to a sermon. Even if you don’t like music and the sermon is poor, it’s just 2 hour. I can’t help but wonder how anyone who really loves God would be unwilling to give 2 hour out of 168 hours in their week to God’s bride. If it’s important to God (and he says so in His Word), then it should be important to me if God is Paid Advertisement

important to me. 2. Its okay if it doesn’t feel ok. There are times for all of us, when church doesn’t feel fun or exciting, and sometimes it even feels painful, like going to the dentist. (But all of us know the dentist is important even though it’s painful. Same with the church.) It’s okay to not feel okay, but we should go to church anyways - those might be the times we need it the most. Don’t base your faith on your feelings. Feelings will come into line by God’s power and grace in our life over time, and we will realize God knows best - every time. Yes, we need to fight for joy in obeying God’s commands, but sometimes this is a process. Some season’s church is a great joy to us, and life-giving community, and other seasons it feels like we are carrying a cross. CHURCH, See page 12A

We Are More Alike Than We Are Different Inez Knows

Inez Lanns

By Inez Lanns As people, in general, we often find reasons to divide and separate ourselves from one another. We like to point out each others’ differences and focus on what divides us. We remain divided by race and ethnicity. We even go further with that and will separate based on the color of our skin – for instance, there are several shades of Latin-Americans, African-Americans, AsianAmericans and we will even separate even more within those groups. We divide amongst each other when it comes to social economic status or clas-

sism. People are divided by their religion, separated from one another through denomination, beliefs or practices. But in reality we have more in common than we do not. Although we were individually created and possess unique qualities, we carry common characteristics and share many common goals. Although we have different color skins, we all bleed the same color blood. We have the same internal organs - 1 heart, 2 lungs, etc. For the most part, we desire for our children to be well educated, to be their best and succeed in life whether that is educated on the streets or in the suburbs we want our children to know what they need to make it. We want to be safe and protected - we want to survive and want our offspring to survive. Whether we take action or not, we desire a lot of the same things. Although we take diverse paths, we are striving for many of the same end outcomes.

We are passionate about different things, but we all desire to have a thriving community to live and recreate in. One person’s passion may be feeding & clothing the homeless and another person’s may be youth & education. One person may be enthralled about making sure music & creative arts stay alive in our community while another is adament about stopping gang violence. Whether it is making sure people receive fair wages, fighting for health care of all, or any of the issues that plague our society, the end results of each of those things contribute to our community being a better place for everyone to live in. Although the specificity of our goals may not be exactly the same, many times each of us can reach our final destinations a little faster if we work together, as opposed to against each other. If we can find out what we have in common and use that commonality as a connector, we will be ALIKE, See page 12A

Thank Goodness for Pushy Dads: My #GetCovered Story By LaNika Wise On a chilly December evening, as I was healing from a volleyball-related mild concussion, my dad came into my room and said: “Don’t you think it’s time you looked into affordable health insurance?” He had urged me many times before to get covered, but I thought I was invincible. I’m 34 and have lived a healthy lifestyle. I thought if I ate my vegetables and drove defensively, I’d be okay. In October, in November, and into December, he pushed me to look into my options. I made a few halfhearted attempts to satisfy him, but I never took it seriously. Fortunately for me, his motto is, “Persistence beats resistance!” and he never gave up. I was born and raised in Flint, Mich. After graduating from Michigan State University, I was no longer covered by my parents’ health insurance. The idea of purchasing my own was nowhere on my radar because I didn’t think I needed it. Chasing my dreams, I moved to Los Angeles to try on different careers. I worked with a celebrity stylist, created a clothing line with my brother, and

began acting. Feeling a spiritual calling to be closer to home, I returned to Flint and pursued an acting career in the Metro Detroit area. With auditions and bookings so infrequent, I had to find part-time jobs—including a junior varsity volleyball coach position. With all of this uncertainty, my income frequently fluctuated; one day I was covered under the county’s health plan, and the next I was kicked off. Going from insured to uninsured was exhausting, and I finally gave up. I’ve

been uninsured for most of the past 10 years. I realize now what a dangerous gamble that time in my life was. I didn’t think about accidents or illnesses. I didn’t even think about a benign lump in my right breast that I had removed years ago under my parents’ insurance. I never considered what I would have done if a lump had returned. I was living on the edge, one mishap away from a financial disaster! Maybe the concussion knocked some sense into me, but I finally listened to my dad.

I logged onto Healthcare.gov and enrolled in a Silver plan that includes dental. And since I qualify for a reduced premium, the plan costs less than $100 a month. A burden I didn’t even realize I was carrying was lifted off of my shoulders! I received my health insurance card on my mother’s birthday, January 2nd. What a great gift to us all! My parents and I now have the peace of mind knowing that I have affordable, quality insurance. I can go anywhere and pursue my dreams because I have

the confidence of knowing that I am covered. I strongly encourage all young adults to visit the Health Insurance Marketplace at HealthCare. gov before open enrollment ends March 31 — even if, like me, you think you’re invincible. It’s easy and your options may be cheaper than you think. I won’t say that parents always know best, but I have to admit that signing up has been a breath of fresh air. I’m so glad mine never gave up. Thanks, Dad!

ALL RISE FOR ENROLL CALL

As the Obamacare enrollment deadline approaches, it becomes clearer that African-Americans have the most to gain from low-cost health care coverage. BY OLU ALEMORU STAFF WRITER With the March 31 Obamacare enrollment deadline fast approaching, one reality become inescapable: African-Americans are poised to gain the most from low-cost health coverage through the Affordable Care Act, but are lagging far behind in the number of people enrolled. Health care experts and community advocates agree on the urgency of getting more black consumers enrolled, and the facts behind that deep concern are stark: African-Americans are 55 percent more likely to be uninsured than white Americans, and face a growing number of health and wellness disparities that cost lives and have endured for far too long. Tragically, lacks have the highest cancer mortality rate of any racial and ethnic group are 40 percent more likely to have high blood pressure, but 18 percent less likely than whites ENROLL, See page 12A

Sports News Tiger Woods Withdraws from NBA Donating Collins Jersey Sales 2014 Honda Classic During Final Round to LGBT Groups

By Doug Ferguson PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Tiger Woods withdrew from the Honda Classic on the 13th hole, claiming a lower back injury with spasms. Woods was 5-over for the final round, 13 shots behind Rory McIlroy, when he shook hands with Luke Guthrie on the 13th green. The tournament sent a van to collect Woods and his family, and police kept media from the parking lot. Woods said through spokesman Glenn Greenspan it was lower back problems that started as he was warming up. Woods already has played a limited schedule this year — 11 rounds at portions of four tournaments. He was to play twice more before the Masters on April 10-13. Woods said the spasms were similar to what he felt last August at The Barclays, where he dropped to his knees after hitting one shot. Woods finished that tournament in a tie for second, one shot behind Adam Scott. It was the second time in two years that Woods has walked off the course

Richard Sherman:

Tiger Woods in the middle of the final round. He quit after 11 holes at Doral when he was well out of contention — and then won Bay Hill two weeks later for his first PGA Tour title since his return from the chaos in his personal life. Woods had said earlier this year in Dubai that he spent the majority of his offseason working on his physical strength, at the expense of neglecting his game. He opened the year by missing the 54-hole cut at Torrey Pines (where he was an eight-time winner), and then tying for 41st in the Dubai Desert Classic. Two years ago at Doral, Woods was driven in a cart to the parking lot, and NBC

Sports showed footage of his Mercedes-Benz driving out of the Miami resort toward his home about an hour north in Jupiter. This time, police blocked the media from entering the players' parking lot. Woods was seen getting out of a white passenger van with his mother and other members of his group. It was the second time the No. 1 player in the world walked out in the middle of the Honda Classic. A year ago, Rory McIlroy quit after 26 holes because of what he said was a sore wisdom tooth. He later said the frustration of a poor start to the year got the best of him.

NFL Banning the N-Word is 'Almost Racist'

By Chris Greenberg Not everyone thinks that Richard Sherman always chooses his words carefully, but he is undeniably someone who thinks seriously about language. The loquacious Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback who

majored in Communications at Stanford has spoken out against the proposed ban on the N-word reportedly being considered by the NFL. “It’s an atrocious idea,” Sherman told Peter King of The Monday Morning Quar-

Richard Sherman terback. “It’s almost racist, to me. It’s weird they’re targeting one specific word. Why wouldn’t all curse words be banned then?” A rule prohibiting players from using the N-word during games has been promoted by the Fritz Pollard Alliance, a group that monitors racial diversity and equality of job opportunity in NFL coaching, front office and scouting staffs. The group believes the NFL will soon enact a rule that will penalize a player 15 yards for using the N-word on the field during a game. “I think they’re going to do what needs to be done here,” John Wooten, head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, said during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, via CBSSports. com. “There is too much disrespect in the game.” Sherman’s call to ban all curse words rather than just the N-word echoes a comment made by Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat, who felt that all slurs should be banned rather than just one. “It’s a very tough situation,” Bosh said. “If that’s the case, they should ban all slurs. And I know it’s a big deal, because I think that word is used too much, especially in the mainstream nowadays.”

NEW YORK — The NBA plans to donate proceeds from sales of Jason Collins jerseys to the Matthew Shepard Foundation and the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network. Collins became the league's first openly gay player when he signed with the Brooklyn Nets last Sunday, and his No. 98 jersey has been the top seller on NBAStore.com. He chose the number in tribute to Shepard, who was killed in a gay hate crime in 1998. Collins met Shepard's parents when the Nets played in Denver. The league says the donations will total no less than $100,000, and it will also auction off Collins' autographed, game-worn jerseys to benefit the same organizations.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Interested in Returning to Bucks

By Andrew Wagner MILWAUKEE — NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is interested in returning in some capacity to the Milwaukee Bucks. "If I get a call, I will definitely offer my services," said Abdul-Jabbar, the franchise's career leading scorer with 14,211 points. "There's nothing on the table right now. A couple of people have asked me and if I had the chance to be part of this franchise again, I would take it." In December, former Sen. Herb Kohl announced he would seek minority investors in the team, which he has owned since 1987. The franchise is at something of a crossroads, with an NBA-worst 11-46 record, struggling to draw large crowds to an aging building. Still, Abdul-Jabbar sees Milwaukee as a viable NBA market. "They have to get their business model right," Abdul-Jabbar said Monday. "I hope that the Bucks are able to sort it all out and get on a good footing. You can't win it all unless you get the right players and you can't get the right players unless you're really in a good position as a business." Abdul-Jabbar was in town in part to promote

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar a new tourism ad for the state of Wisconsin that played off his acting role in the movie "Airplane." He met reporters just before the Bucks' game at the Bradley Center against the Utah Jazz. Over the last few years, Abdul-Jabbar has expressed an interest in returning to the NBA as a coach. He's worked as a special assistant with teams such as the Clippers and Lakers. Abdul-Jabbar — then Lew Alcindor — was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1969 NBA draft and immediately turned the Bucks, coming off their expansion season, into contenders. Milwaukee went 56-26 and finished second in the Eastern Division behind Abdul-Jabbar's 28.8 points and 14.5 rebounds per

game. Not long after the season ended, the Bucks obtained Oscar Robertson from the Cincinnati Royals, leading to a dominant 1970-71 season. They finished with a 66-16 record and swept Baltimore in the NBA Finals, becoming the fastest expansion franchise to win a championship in the history of major professional sports. The Bucks returned to the Finals in 1974, losing to Boston in seven games. Robertson would retire just before the '74-75 season and Abdul-Jabbar quietly requested a trade, looking for a bigger market and the chance to join another contender. "They appreciated that and they appreciated that I kept my mouth shut about it," he said. "I gave them the opportunity to approach other teams and they figured out the best deal they could make for themselves." Abdul-Jabbar got his wish in June 1975, when he was shipped to the Lakers in a deal that included Junior Bridgeman going to Milwaukee. Both players have had their jerseys retired by the franchise. Bridgeman, who was honored by the team last week, also has been mentioned as a possible investor.

Chains of Black Teenagers teaches teens how to be leaders, how to be successful in any field, and how to build confidence. The book begins by establishing a positive self-identity for teenagers and reveals proven historical facts, including scientific discoveries such as math that were made by blacks. "They were utilizing their metacognitive thought processes," Braxton said of her students. "Yaba became a quick favorite in my class. The

children were thirsting for more information and waited eagerly for his arrival every week. There were a number of students who also took it upon themselves to extend their newfound information by doing their own research to learn more about what they read. I would definitely recommend this book to other teachers to use in their classrooms because knowledge is power. This book equips students with knowledge that they would have never known otherwise and that knowledge builds their self-esteem because they know and understand that they come from a people that are way beyond the stereotypes they are accustomed to."

He was proven correct when Ms. Braxton agreed to conduct a chapter by chapter discussion over a four-week period with her class. The topics covered sparked insightful classroom discussions about life choices and dispelled myths about getting rich quick, education not being important, and the fantasy of prison life that many black youth are accepting as reality. "The growth in my classroom was amazing and continuous!

State News AG Harris Appeals Ninth Circuit Statement on President Obama’s Concealed Weapons Permit Ruling “My Brother’s Keeper” Initiative

Attorney General Kamala D. Harris filed a petition in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, on behalf of the State of California, urging the court to review and reverse its decision in Peruta v. County of San Diego. In its February 13, 2014 Peruta decision, the Ninth Circuit ruled that San Diego County violates the Second Amendment by requiring individuals to show “good cause,” beyond a mere desire to carry a gun, when applying for a concealed-carry weapons permit. “Local law enforcement must be able to use their discretion to determine who can carry a concealed

weapon," Attorney General Harris said. "I will do everything possible to restore law enforcement's authority to protect public safety,

and so today am calling on the court to review and reverse its decision." California state law currently requires individuals to show "good cause" to carry a concealed weapon, but gives local law enforcement control over the permit process. If the Ninth Circuit’s ruling is allowed to take effect, officials throughout the State could be required to issue concealed-carry permits to individuals based on nothing more than the applicant’s assertion that they wish to carry a gun for self-defense. In San Diego County, concealed-carry permit applicants have, until now, been required to show “good HARRIS, From page 12A

This bill would return illegally collected taxes to the taxpayers… it’s just common sense,” said Senator Steve Knight (R-Antelope Valley). “When California taxpayers have been illegally forced to pay a tax, it should not be their responsibility RUNNER, See page 12A

House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Health Ranking Member Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) participated in a hearing entitled “VA Accountability: Assessing Actions Taken in Response to Subcommittee Oversight.” The hearing was a follow-up to oversight hearings from the first session of the 113th Congress on physician staffing standards, care and treatment for military sexual trauma (MST) survivors, and VA’s overuse of prescription painkillers to treat veterans with chronic pain. In addition, it focused on procurement reform, veterans’ access to care, and billing and collection from third-party health insurance companies for nonservice-connected care. Ranking Member Brownley focused primarily on VA’s Military Sexual Trauma programs. “I am sure we all agree that it is critical that Congress do all that we can to make it easier for all veterans, including survivors of military sexual trauma, to access needed benefits and services, and to receive treatment,” said Ranking Member Brownley. According to the VA, FY2013 saw an increase of 9.3 percent in rates of engagement of MST-related care at the Veterans Health

Ranking Member Julia Brownley Administration. Additionally, VA reports an increase of 14.6 percent in MST-related visits in FY2013. Brownley co-sponsored several bills to address MST, and the final FY2014 National Defense Authorization Act that was signed into law includes several provisions to address MST. Ranking Member Brownley also focused on physician productivity, VA’s staffing standards, skyrocketing use of prescription painkillers, alternative approaches to pain therapy, procurement wait times for surgical implants and prosthetic appliances, and thirdparty insurance collections. Brownley said she will continue to pursue rigorous oversight of the VA on the issues discussed, to ensure BROWNLEY, See page 12A

Runner Sponsors Legislation to Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Refund Illegal Taxes to Host Free Tax Preparation Event

SACRAMENTO – George Runner announced he is sponsoring legislation to extend common sense protections to taxpayers. Two identical measures, AB 2510 (Wagner) and SB 1327 (Knight), would require the state to provide a full refund to all individuals who paid a tax later declared unconstitutional or illegal. “It is criminal that the State of California can keep money it illegally collects from its citizens,” said Board of Equalization Member George Runner. “Anyone who in good faith pays what ends up being an illegal tax should get their money back. It’s as simple as that.” Currently, taxpayers are only eligible to receive re-

At Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, members and neighbors buy fruits and vegetables from a black farmers market and work in an organic garden named after botanist George Washington Carver. They recycle their church bulletins, plan to renovate their building with a “green” roof and have purchased 27 acres for a community project that will include an urban farm. “By any greens necessary,” the Rev. Otis Moss III, the church’s pastor, likes to say. When it comes to African-American churches and a focus on the environment, Moss and his congregation are the exception rather than the rule.

Homeless Man 'Wins' Lottery and the First Thing He Wants to Do is Share the Money

By Eleanor Goldberg YouTube prankster Magic of Rahat usually regales us with antics that freak his victims out. (Like the time he made skeletons pull up to drive-thru windows as Halloween approached.) But the funny guy shared a pretty heartwarming stunt that will bring you to happy tears. Rahat decided to give a lottery ticket to a homeless man. But, before handing it over, he gave a store clerk $1,000, and arranged for the clerk to pretend that it was a winning ticket and to give the cash to the homeless man. There are plenty of in-

Thornton had been charged with a DUI, despite blowing 0.00 on a breathalyzer. He claims to have been guilty of "driving while black," and says racial profiling fueled the arrest. The city denies these allegations.

Free Help Lines Available for African-Americans with Money Troubles

Money-Saving Tips for Seniors By Jason Alderman We all love a good bargain, no matter what our age. But if you're a senior citizen on a fixed income, finding discounted goods and services can mean the difference between making ends meet and going without. The good news is that tons of senior discounts are available – often for people as young as 50. One caveat right up front: Although many senior discounts are substantial, you sometimes can find better bargains – especially on travel-related expenses like airfare, hotels and rental cars. So always do your research first before requesting the senior rate. Here's a roundup of

some of the best senior discounts I've found: An AARP membership costs only $16 a year for anyone over age 50, including free membership for spouses or partners (www. aarp.org). AARP's discounts website features discounts on dozens of products and services including rental cars, hotels, restaurants, clothing and department store chains. AARP also offers an inexpensive driver safety course for drivers over 50 (members and nonmembers alike) that can lower auto insurance premiums by up to 10 percent or more. Popular AARP discounts include:

• 20 percent discount on installation or upgrades to ADT home security systems. • 45 percent off membership to Angie's List. • 20 percent off purchases from 1-800-FLOWERS.com. • Up to 25 percent off car rentals from Avis and Budget. • Up to 20 percent discount at many hotel chains including Hyatt, Hilton, Wyndham, Best Western, Days Inn and Ramada, among others.

Three Ways Small Businesses Can Save Money on Their Taxes

(NewsUSA) - Running a small business can be tough, and keeping the money you earn in your pocket can be a challenge, especially at tax time. Check out these tips to help ensure you don’t give more money to the government than you must: 1. Deduct everything you can. The IRS has a variety of ways it helps small businesses, but many owners don’t take full advantage of all of the deductions they can claim. For example, if there’s a place in your home that you use exclusively for business, you can deduct some of your housing costs. For your 2013 return, you can claim $5 per sq. ft. of your office up to 300 sq. ft. Mileage is another overlooked expense. You can deduct the miles you drive for business, such

Keep hard-earned money from your small business in your pocket. as driving to see a client or pick up supplies. Every trip counts, even the short ones, so it pays to keep track of your business mileage. Small businesses can deduct 56 cents for each mile travelled. Other deductions small businesses are eligible for include travel expenses like tolls and parking, 50 percent of meals with clients,

as well as supplies and furniture for your office. 2. Use the right business structure. Small businesses can be structured in various ways, and choosing the right structure for your particular business can affect how much or how little you pay in taxes. Most small businesses choose to operate as a sole proprietor, Limited Liability Company (LLC) or corporation. A tax specialist can advise you which structure is best for you, but as a general rule of thumb, if your business generates more than $50,000 in profit, you can save taxes by incorporating. 3. Don’t get penalized. Many small business owners end up paying more to the government because they file late, resulting in the IRS charging interest, late fees and penalty fees. TAXES, See page 12A

Waxhaw, NC -- When a household relies on two paychecks, budgets are strained if one job is lost. In cases like this, a family can tread water for a time. But as they struggle to find work, many will fall into troubling debt. Fortunately, more households are finding lifelines for help. Since 2009, phone calls to financial help lines have risen 10% per year. As a public benefit, CareConnect USA publishes help lines for families seeking financial assistance. According to national director David Moakler, awareness is the key. “Although we are pleased that more people have learned about programs to ease their money troubles, the sad news is that the need for such help continues to grow.” The national rise in calls to the help lines has been especially strong from African-American regions.

By Les Christie NEW YORK -- Your next rent hike may be determined by a sort of Priceline.com for landlords. As demand for rental housing surges, a growing number of landlords are pricing their apartments based on a system similar to the one Priceline.com uses to determine airfare and hotel rates. Using this “dynamic pricing” software, landlords can determine what to charge tenants based on real-time supply and demand. When demand is high, it signals the landlord to ask for higher rent on vacant apartments. When demand drops, it tells them to lower their rates. “It takes the emotion and the stickiness out of rental pricing,” said Bryan Pierce, director of revenue management at Holland Partner Group, a multifamily housing management company. The software that makes these decisions has

been around for more than a decade, but adoption was slow -- until recently. But as more homeowners turned into renters in the wake of the housing bust, many larger management companies began trying dynamic pricing to set rents more efficiently. Dynamic pricing is now used to determine the rent of some 5 million apartments, according to Andrew Rains, president of the multifamily division at Rainmaker Group.

Priceline for Landlords may Determine Your Next Rent

That’s about 30% of rentals handled by professional property managers, says Rains, whose firm produces Rainmaker LRO, one of the more popular software packages used to determine prices. Two years ago, just 10% of those apartments’ rents were based on dynamic pricing, he estimates. Brock MacLean, a vice president with Homes. com, a website that lists both sales and rentals, said the software helps landlords LANDLORDS, See page 12A

CFPB to Mortgage Servicers:

The Shell Game is Over

By Charlene Crowell In a February 19 speech before the nation’s largest association representing real estate finance, Steven Antonakes, Deputy Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), updated the Bureau’s recent achievements before addressing how new mortgage servicing standards will be implemented. Since CFPB began operations, the Bureau has: • Returned more than $750 million to consumers as of September 2013 and issued fines totaling $81.5 million to entities that violated consumer laws; • Mandated an additional $2 billion in foreclosure relief; and • Received more than 289,000 complaints. An average of 4,900 mortgage complaints per month is second only to the 5,900 average filed on debt collection. Yet, the real focus of Antonakes’ address focused on mortgage servicers. He said, “When it comes to servicing, consumers have little choice

Charlene Crowell in the matter. After a borrower chooses a lender and takes on a mortgage, the responsibility for managing that loan can be transferred to another servicer without any so-so from the borrower. So if consumers are dissatisfied with their servicer, they have no opportunity to switch over to another provider.” Although consumers choose a lender, they do not choose a servicer. That judgment call comes from the originating lender. Mortgage servicers, not loan officers, are responsible for the

management of home loans, including crediting monthly loan payments. During the foreclosure crisis, many troubled homeowners became frustrated with mortgage servicers’ delays and sometimes lack of concern. If a mortgage loan was bundled and sold on the secondary market, servicers changed as well, despite homeowners never being given notice of a change in servicers or new operating terms. As a result, millions of troubled homeowners were forced to seek the attention and assistance of servicers they did not hire, nor paid. Servicers, on the other hand, were more concerned with meeting expectations of investors and lenders rather than customers. Consequently, if servicers been more responsive to consumers, the infamous ‘dual-tracking’ process would not have been so prevalent. Dualtracking is the servicer practice of pursuing foreclosure at the same time CFPB, See page 9B

How About Obesity in Older Women? Awareness & Fast Response Key to Combating Stroke in Children

By Candy Sagon Dear Mrs. Obama: Congratulations on the new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data that shows that obesity among preschoolers has plummeted 43 percent over the last decade. Certainly that was good news to coincide with the fourth anniversary of your Let’s Move! campaign to fight childhood obesity. As nice as that is, that’s not really why I’m writing you. I’m writing about the rest of that study, which included the less than stellar news about the obesity rate among women age 60 and older. Evidently, those ladies were not eating their veggies and dancing around like you got those little kids to do. Their obesity rate jumped significantly from 31 to 38 percent. In fact, adults in general don’t seem to be shedding any of their excess pounds. The CDC sampled 9,000 Americans and their obesity rate hasn’t changed, up or down, for the last 10 years.

By Brittany Gatson Falls are the second leading cause of accidental death. Seniors are the most at risk for a serious fall because of changes in balance and strength that can come with aging. Taking a few common sense precautions can help prevent falls and hip fractures. The following basic actions could save your life, prevent a hip fracture and keep you independent longer. 1. Exercise When you have osteoporosis, keeping still may seem like the best way to prevent falls and broken bones. But exercise improves strength, flexibility, and balance — which help you stay on your feet. Stick with low-impact activities like walking or swimming. 2. Talk to Your Doctor About Your Meds Many medicines and medication combinations can make you dangerously drowsy or dizzy. Review everything you’re taking with your doctor. Also, ask about other health conditions that might affect your

answer the doorbell or the phone. More accidents happen when you’re in a hurry. 6. Use Safety Devices Installing grab bars and rubber mats in the bathroom is just the beginning. Mount handrails on both sides of the stairs. Make sure all area rugs have skid-proof backing. 7. Keep Things Light Vision changes as we age, making it harder to avoid obstacles and get oriented in dim light. So keep your rooms bright! 8. Watch Out for Pets Dogs and cats make great companions, but it’s easy for them to get underfoot. Each year, an estimated 21,000 older adults wind up in emergency rooms after tripping over their pets. 9. Limit Your Alcohol It’s no surprise that heavy drinking can lead to more falls. When you drink, you can be unsteady on your feet. But excessive alcohol also can damage bone health. It can limit the calcium that gets into your bones and make them more brittle and prone to fracture.

Nine Tips to Avoid Falls & Fractures

Clear Clutter Arrange furnishings so that it’s easy to walk around your home. Keep low coffee tables, magazine racks, stools, and plants out of your path. And make sure electric cords and phone lines are out of the way. 5. Go Slow At home, take your time getting out of bed or up from a chair. Don’t rush to

New Twists on Three Old Tricks

By Sid Kirchheimer Once again, scammers have developed new twists on some of the most popular frauds of years past. Although the original versions continue — especially preying on those over age 50 — here’s what you should know about some revised rip-offs currently making the rounds. The hostage scam: An offshoot of the notorious Grandparents Scam, it also feigns that a beloved relative is in trouble … and needs quick cash to remedy the situation. But instead of phone calls from scammers posing as grandkids who were supposedly arrested or hospitalized (often abroad) — with accomplices pretending to be police or hospital officials. The conning caller claims that a grandchild or other relative has caused an automobile accident but won’t pay for repairs. As a result, the victimized driver says the relative was taken hostage and is being held

for ransom until damages are paid. The actual name of the alleged kidnap victim may be used, likely gleaned from some online research. The same rule applies: Don’t send money — often requested by wire transfer or prepaid debit card — without checking with the alleged victim or other family members. Free gift cards: In the classic version of this con, scammers sent emails claiming you won a free gift card from a leading retailer such as Walmart or Target — a ruse to collect personal information or download malware onto your computer. Next, there were text messages to cellphones making the same false claims (with the same intent). The gotcha: You are asked for a credit card number to cover a $2 to $10 processing fee. If you provide your credit card information, scammers can make unauthorized charges on your account. So don’t.

The tech support scam: These phony phone calls are still hot, with scammers claiming to be from Microsoft, computer security software providers or even “Windows Computers” (some scammers must figure people don’t realize Windows is an operating system, not a type of computer). The claim is that they noticed a problem with your computer and are happy to fix it — for a price. You pay in two ways: First, you’re instructed to click on a provided link or take other steps that give scammers remote access to your computer — along with your files, passwords and other sensitive information. And then, you may be billed (credit card information is usually requested) for their fraudulent fixes, which can $300 or more. To add salt to the wounds, there was never a problem with your computer. Or if there was, the scammers certainly wouldn’t know about it.

By Dr. Renee When you think of strokes you typically think of adults, but research shows that children have strokes as well. A study on stroke in children conducted by the National Stroke Foundation and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute was presented at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference 2014. Warning Signs of a Stroke? The signs of stroke in children are very similar to adults: • Weakness or numbness of the face, arm or leg • Sudden difficulty in speaking • Sudden problems in seeing • Sudden difficulty walking • Dizziness • Sudden onset of headache

Researchers interviewed 28 parents whose child had a stroke about the factors that delayed arrival to the hospital. Seizures were more common in younger children and strokes mostly occurred at home. The parents thought the symptoms were serious, but only half called 9-1-1; 36% considered the possibility of

stroke and 21% had a “wait and see” attitude or called a relative before taking emergency action. The lead researcher and director of the Children’s Stroke Program at the Royal Children’s Hospital and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia, Dr. Mark STROKE, See page 9B

possibly make you dizzy during your workout. Eating on a full stomach or right before you exercise isn’t advised (because being nauseous is never fun), but eating 45 minutes to an hour will give your body some energy to run on. 2. Using bad form Doing a squat isn’t the same as doing a squat CORRECTLY. The same can be said for any exercise. Incorrect form can lead to serious injuries and

keep you from reaping the maximum benefits from the exercises you do. Try asking a trainer for assistance, or using a mirror to check your form until your body builds muscle memory of what correct form feels like. 3. Staying in your comfort zone The name of the game is progress, and progress is usually found beyond your comfort zone. Getting into your fitness groove is great, but to keep seeing results it’s important to go to your edge and beyond. Give yourself new milestones and challenges to reach. 4. Keeping the same routine Similar to the comfort zone, your body will adapt to your fitness routine and stop making progress. Not only does this cause frustration for you, but prevents your body from being the FITNESS, See page 9B

Five Bad Fitness Habits to Break Today

By Chris Shaw That “gold star” feeling you get when you stick to your fitness plans is priceless. However, making the commitment to exercise and following through is only the beginning. Showing up and “going hard” won’t be as effective if your exercise routine is filled with counterproductive bad habits. Whether you’re new to working out or a seasoned trainer, make sure you haven’t fallen into bad habits that can keep you from seeing the results you want and possibly do your body more harm than good in the process. Here are five habits you should break today. 1. Working out on an empty stomach Your body needs fuel for a good workout and this fuel comes in the form of glucose (blood sugar). Low blood sugar can make you fatigue quicker and

Racing Through the Pain With Olympic Ski Champion Picabo Street

(NewsUSA) - Named after a small town in her home state of Idaho, Picabo Street gained fame as an Olympic gold medalist and World Cup ski champion. But her career might've literally gone downhill had she not turned to chiropractic care. "Chiropractic has been a life saver for me," says Street. "I can say that [without it] I do not think that I would be able to ski today, recreationally or otherwise." Street won a gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics. Later that year, she slammed into a fence and broke her leg in multiple places. Despite this setback, she refused to give up -- and after her recovery, committed herself to getting back on the slopes. She returned in 2000, but was unable to train without the help of medication. After meeting her chiropractor, she was training prescription-free after two treatments. "After I had met with Dr. Craig Buhler, I can honestly say it's made a profound impact on my life," STREET, See page 9B

New Legislation Would Require Netflix Phishing Scam Tricks You a 'Kill Switch' in Every Phone with Phony Customer Service Reps

A New York congressman announced legislation aimed at reducing the growing number of smartphone thefts across the country. The bill, introduced by Democratic Rep. José E. Serrano, would require all phones sold in the United States to feature “kill switch” technology that allows consumers to wipe their data and shut down a phone’s capabilities when it’s reported stolen. Such a feature could reduce the incentive for thieves to steal phones by eliminating their resale value on the black market. Serrano’s bill comes just weeks after four Democratic senators introduced similar legislation, and a California state lawmaker proposed a measure that would require every new smartphone sold in that state to carry antitheft technology. “It is time for smartphone carriers and manufacturers to get serious about protecting the safety and security of their customers,” Serrano said in a statement. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has been leading a nationwide effort to reduce phone thefts, said of the legislation, “Because the industry dragged its feet, Congress is poised to act on legislation that will put consum-

ers ahead of profits.” But the success of such legislation is uncertain. The wireless industry has resisted rolling out a kill-switch feature, claiming it could be misused by hackers. San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon has suggested the industry has resisted for another reason: to preserve their profits from selling phone insurance. During a Senate hearing, however, a Verizon Wireless official expressed support for a kill switch. “We are actively engaging with app developers and manufacturers to encourage them to bring forward these options,” Randal Milch, Verizon’s general counsel, said in response to questions from Sen. Amy Klobuchar (DMinn.), who co-sponsored the Senate bill.

About 40 percent of robberies in major U.S. cities involve mobile devices, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Thefts of smartphones and other mobile devices increased in several major cities again in 2013, including New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. The robberies have become increasingly violent. Serrano represents a congressional district the Bronx where in 2012, Hwangbum Yang, a 26-year-old Korean immigrant, was shot and killed during an iPhone robbery. Last summer, Schneiderman and Gascon launched their “Secure Our Smartphones” initiative, aimed at pressing the industry to adopt technology that could make stolen phones worthless to thieves.

CarPlay is Apple's Latest Attempt to Take Over Your Life

By Dino Grandoni Now you never ever have to stop using your iPhone -- that is if you’re planning on buying a very

expensive car in the next year or so. Apple announced a new iPhone-to-automobile integration system called

CarPlay on Monday, ahead of the Geneva auto show. CarPlay syncs your iPhone with your car, letting you take phone calls, dictate text messages and emails and play music while driving. The new technology uses Siri to control native iPhone apps and a few third-party apps, including Spotify and iHeartRadio. CarPlay won’t work with the one app drivers probably need the most: Google Maps. Instead, CarPlay gives drivers access to turn-by-turn directions in the much-maligned and far less reliable Apple Maps. CarPlay will be available in Ferrari, MercedesBenz and Volvo cars starting this week. Thirteen other auto makers, including Ford, General Motors, Hyundai and Toyota, will integrate CarPlay, though Apple did not specify when. The system will only be available starting with new, 2014 models and will only work with the iPhone 5, 5C and 5S. Apple first hinted at its plans to weasel iOS into people’s cars at its developers conference in June. Last year, Apple made a similar partnership to integrate iOS into select Beetles with a built-in iPhone docking station. Both Apple and Google want a bigger place in people’s cars, starting with the software that runs vehicles’ entertainment and navigation systems. Last month, Google announced plans to bring Android to four auto makers’ vehicles. Google has its own highly touted plan to develop self-driving cars.

By Taylor Casti A new Netflix phishing scam preys on our blind trust of customer service representatives when it comes to our personal information. Users being targeted by the scam will see a phony Web page modeled after the Netflix login page. When a user enters Netflix account info, the scam site claims that the user’s Netflix account has been suspended due to “unusual activity” and then provides a fake customer service number. When the user calls that number, a representative on the phone recommends a download of “Netflix support software,” which is actually remote login software that gives the scammers complete access to your computer. The scammers may also ask for copies of photo IDs or credit cards. Jérôme Segura of Malwarebytes Unpacked first noticed the scam on Feb. 28 and made a handy video to protect customers from falling for it. He told The Huffington Post that users might stumble across the fake site via a link in a phishing email, pop-up

This page was designed to trick Netflix customers into calling a phony number and handing over sensitive personal data to someone posing as a Netflix customer service employee. Note that the URL is not Netflix.com. window or ad. Segura says that while he was on the phone with the “rogue representatives,” they were busy searching his computer for things like banking information or lists of passwords. There are plenty of red flags here to warn customers that something is awry, but for those who are too trusting of the voice on the other end of the customer service line, check out Segura’s video for highlights from the call. A good rule to remem-

ber is to not be too trusting when it comes to giving out personal information. Avoid letting someone remotely control your computer, don’t send pictures of your ID or credit cards over the Internet and be sure to double check URLs in the address bar of your browser. Also, anyone can look up the real Netflix customer service number and see that it doesn’t match the scammers’ number. Happy streaming, and stay safe out there.

Texting is a literal pain in the neck. HuffPost's Executive Lifestyle Editor Lori Leibovich has used computers and smartphones often over many years, and after visiting the doctor she found out her technology use was to blame for the perpetual pain she had been suffering. "I couldn't ignore the shooting pains anymore in my neck, and there was numbness and tingling in my arm," she said. "I'm getting an MRI next week to figure it out." Leibovich told HuffPost Live's Caitlyn Becker that she deduced the cause of the pain when she realized that it was triggered by the motion of swiping across her phone's screen and using her thumb to scroll.

Chiropractor Dean Fishman has seen that before. He recalled an appointment with a 17-year-old girl who was experiencing headaches and neck pain. As he was reviewing the xrays, he noticed the patient was texting in the corner.

"We put the pieces of the puzzle together and we found that the repetitive stresses of having her head in a forward, titled posture for long periods of time was the contributing factor," he said.

Keeping an eye on tailgaters just got a whole lot easier with Nissan’s Smart rearview mirror. Whereas traditional rearview mirrors use reflective glass, the Nissan Smart rearview mirror relies on a camera located at the back of the car which feeds an image to an LCD screen within the rearview mirror housing. Nissan plans to release this tech to the global market by 2015. The company claims the camera lens gives drivers a wider view of what’s going on behind the car, and that the image will remain clear in all kinds of weather. Passenger heads, rear seat headrests and luggage will not obstruct the driver’s line of sight, since the image the driver sees comes from the rearmounted camera feed.

The LCD screen is also layered with a regular mirror, allowing drivers to turn off the screen and use a traditional glass rearview mirror if they desire. Nissan says that the Smart rearview mirror will

be used in the race car it’s fielding for this year’s 24 Hours of LeMans competition in June. The company plans to initially offer the Smart rearview mirror as a dealer option this spring in Japan.

Commentary Beyond the Rhetoric:

Obama’s One-Sided Responsibility Lecture

Russia is Winning the Chump Game

Walter Fields Too often during the presidency of Barack Obama, the nation’s first African-American president has felt the need to chide Black Americans to take responsibility for their destiny. In announcing his new “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative targeting young men of color at the White House, the president again waded in the personal responsibility waters and told the nation our Black and Latino young men simply have to do better, be better. After all, President Obama shared how he was the product of a single parent, did not have a relationship with his father and was sometimes angry about that, got high and made some bad choices. But look at him now, all grown up and occupying the White House. It’s not like we have not heard this pitch before. Most Black children receive this message whether the product of a two- or single-parent household, or from a family surrogate. If you have spent any time in a Black church, chances are you have heard that sermon on multiple occasions. And contrary to popular belief, Black people actually confront irresponsible behavior on a fre-

quency that would shock White America. What’s different here is that the message is coming from our highest and most powerful elected official, and someone whose reflection in the mirror looks like us. My level of disgust for this message delivered by the president is similar to the anger I feel when I hear the generalized “you people” when a White person seeks to demonize Black people. When President Obama uses such rhetoric it reinforces the perception among many Whites that if only Black people would get their act together they could make something of themselves. It reminds me of the movies I despised when I was a child; the films with the depiction of the mumbling and self-deprecating Black house servant who put down Blacks to curry favor with the White boss but was too ignorant to understand he was insulting himself. The crowd the president plays to with this message is predisposed to discount the value of Black people, including the one in the Oval Office. I can’t recall a White president delivering that message to White men. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and the wigged

Harry C. Alford

crew from 1776 certainly looked the other way when they and their White brethren were buying and selling Africans like cattle. My father served in World War II but I don’t remember reading that President Truman publicly rebuked White male military leaders for allowing Black soldiers to bleed for their country but be treated as second-class citizens. Perhaps I missed the kinescope of President Dwight D. Eisenhower chastising White men for spitting on and cursing at little Black children who simply wanted to go to school. I do not have a memory of President John F. Kennedy telling White, southern men who bombed churches and murdered Black children to be responsible. Nor for that matter did JFK dress down southern governors like George Wallace for being blatantly racist and trampling on the Constitution.

Israel, Occupied Palestine and the Dred Scott Decision

It seems that the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is the latest in a series of interaction between this aggressive government and the United States. In 2008, when Russia invaded the nation of Georgia who was flaunting total freedom from Russian influence, we imposed economic and trade sanctions on Russia in retaliation. So, when the Obama Administration came in and appointed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State they decided to be nice to Russia and hope that things would get better. Secretary Clinton said they want to “Reset” with Russia. In a public ceremony they held a gadget that said reset. It was actually a device for a Jacuzzi which they pilfered from their hotel. She exclaimed in Russian “Reset!” They should have checked the actual translation. The Russian Foreign Secretary said that wasn’t reset rather it meant “overcharge”. How amateurish and clumsy. While they ended all the sanctions as a good gesture and new start, Russian President Vladimir Putin must have been smiling and said to himself, “They are so weak”. So here we are. Russia has a president who wrestles bears and has a

walking through Occupied Palestine I found myself confronting the reality that Palestinians have no rights that the Israeli authorities feel bound to respect. In the interest of time and space, let me provide two examples. The first is land. Since 1948 there has been a systematic seizure of land owned by Palestinians, first in what is now known as the state of Israel, and later in the Occupied Territories. Rationales have ranged from alleging security concerns to the discovery of archaeological relics. Regardless of the rationale, once removed from the land, the Palestinians do not get it back. More than likely it is turned over to an Israeli settler in flagrant violation of international law, and sometimes even Israeli law. The second example concerns checkpoints and roads. There are roads in the Occupied Territories that Palestinians are forbidden to travel unless they receive special permission. There are checkpoints throughout the Occupied Territories that Palestinians must walk through, in an atmosphere of humiliation, to be inspected, questioned, etc. Additionally, Israeli security personnel can feel free to stop any Palestinian, including in territory nominally controlled by the Palestinian

background as a KGB professional (their version of CIA). We have a President whose background is that of a community organizer and wears “mom jeans”. Russia is building up its military as is China, India, Iran and others who might rival us soon. We are proposing to slash our military like never before all the while hot spots are starting to appear right before us. We shrunk our military in like fashion after World War II. It resulted in North Korea, Russia and China figuring we did not have the guts to support South Korea so they invaded. We had to lose a lot of young soldiers in that war because we weren’t ready. Let us recall that hard lesson and do not repeat it. We didn’t see this Ukraine event coming although Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney predicted such an event. Russia lined up 150,000 troops along their border with Ukraine and sent in another 15,000 troops into the Crimea region of the nation which is populated with many people of Russian descent. Putin claimed he was going in to protect those ethnic Russians. Funny, that is the same reason Adolph Hitler gave when he invaded Czechoslovakia

and Romania. The White House called an emergency strategy meeting. They were all there except one person, our President. The next day he put in a round of golf and then headed a fundraiser. It was like Benghazi when four Americans were killed and he could not be found. The next day he flew to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. I don’t think he understands or responds to pressure. Others would say he is frightened. The night our Seals went in to Pakistan to assassinate Osama Bin Laden, he played cards with a friend and two reporters until the deed was done. He couldn’t stand to watch it. What should he do now that Russia has thrown down? Europe is intimidated because Russia has a monopoly on supplying coal and natural gas to those nations. This is actually an opportunity for us. We can actually begin selling coal to Europe at a better price. We can also begin exporting natural gas since we have become so RUSSIA, See page 9B

The Jim Crow Impulse

Bill Fletcher, Jr. I found myself thinking about the notorious Dred Scott decision (1857) by the U.S. Supreme Court while traveling the streets of Occupied Palestine this past January. I was there leading a small delegation of African Americans who were trying to better understand the nature of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. There are many ways that the conditions of Palestinians have been described over time. Most recently the system of Israeli domination of the Palestinians (both internal to the state of Israel and externally through the occupation of Palestinian territories) has been characterized as an “apartheid system,” based on the criteria and analysis of apartheid that the United Nations established in the early 1970s. While I absolutely agree that apartheid describes the system in place, it was the Dred Scott decision that reverberated in my brain as I explored the reality of the conditions facing Palestinians. As you will remember, the Dred Scott decision concerned the legitimacy of an African American slave’s assertion of freedom once he was in a non-slave state. In this famous decision the Court argued, among other things, that Blacks had no rights that a White person was bound to respect. While

Authority, and interrogate them and/or seize them. In each case, protests by Palestinians rarely result in anything approaching justice. If Palestinians are attacked by settlers in the Occupied Territories, the Palestinians have come to expect little or no justice from Israeli authorities. If, on the other hand, a Palestinian attacks an Israeli, they can expect retribution from the Israeli authorities and the settlers. If you have any questions as to why the tide seems to be turning in favor of a rethinking of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and why growing numbers of people recognize the profound injustice in the treatment of the Palestinians, just remember the name “Dred Scott.” At that point it will all come together.

Arizona’s Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, after nearly a week of reading the political tea leaves, vetoed a bill Feb. 27 from her state’s GOP-controlled legislature that its advocates stated had the innocuous purpose of shoring up protections for the “free exercise of religion.” In fact, the legislation would have revived for use against gays and lesbians one of the oldest planks of the centuries-long statesponsored bigotry against Black Americans: religion. Or, perhaps, it’s more correct to characterize it as religious mumbo-jumbo. The bill, SB1062, would have amended Arizona’s constitution, to allow any individual, business owner, association, corporation, partnership or church to discriminate against gays and lesbians if they claimed they were following a “sincerely held” religious belief. In fact, current state law does not provide protection for gays and lesbians against discrimination; so, the bill would have increased the legal advantages of those operating an enterprise in the public sphere who wanted to discriminate. The bill also could also protect those who would discriminate against Muslims because they are of-

fended by Muslim religious beliefs. It would have overridden specific city ordinances of Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff protecting the rights of gay and lesbian individuals. And it would have undermined policies of private businesses that were inclusive of gays and lesbians. Do those provisions of law sound familiar? You don’t have to go too deep into the American past to find their rancid antecedents. Southern segregationists of the 19th and 20th centuries pioneered the use of religious mumbo-jumbo to try to sanctify the rank prejudice in the thousands and thousands of discriminatory laws southern state legislatures, city councils and other rule-making bodies enacted to deny Black Americans full citizenship. Despite its advocates’ mealy-mouthed claims that the bill was to protect the “religious freedom” of “Christians,” the Arizona bill’s intent was so obvious that progressive forces throughout the country immediately mounted a campaign against it. Implicit in their words of condemnation was the threat of an economic boycott against the state like the one rapidly organized in in the spring of 2010 af-

ter Brewer singed a draconian immigration law that was widely, and rightly, interpreted as anti-Hispanic. That boycott cost Arizona hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue. Clearly, avoiding a repeat of that economic and public-relations disaster played a role in the demand of the state’s business community, both of its Republican U.S. Senators, and other GOP politicians that Brewer exercise her veto power. Adding more muscle to that imperative was word from the National Football League, whose 2015 Super Bowl is scheduled for Phoenix, that it was “monitoring” the situation there. So, the forces of progress prevailed in this instance. The Brewer veto is another clear signal, along with public opinion surveys, federal court decisions striking down state bans against same-sex marriages, and the refusal of six state attorneys general to enforce such homophobic laws, that substantial progress is being made in expanding a true definition of freedom for all Americans.

TRUANCY From page 1A “I’m proud to stand with Attorney General Harris to unveil this package of legislation that will help to address the truancy crisis here in California. AB 1866 will allow educators and stakeholders to identify students at risk of becoming truants earlier in the process, which will allow preventative steps to be taken to ensure these students get back to school and back on track. Hundreds of thousands of our young men and women are truant from school each and every year. That is simply unacceptable and I applaud Attorney General Harris for helping to shine a spotlight on this critical issue,” Assemblymember Bocanegra said. “Putting our children on the right path starts with making sure they are in school, and requires that we all work together to ensure that happens. That means developing the lines of communication between schools, parents and law enforcement to address the issue—which is what AB 2141 does. Additionally, this package of bills being put forward by the Attorney General will help stakeholders intervene early when students are not in class,” Assemblymember Bonta said. “With the right individuals at the table, such as mental health or social service agencies, we can work with students and families to find a positive solution to attendance challenges. By requiring every county to have a SARB, we guarantee that this important tool is available across the state,” said Assemblymember Buchanan. “A student’s chronic truancy is a symptom of larger problems in a young person’s life. Our efforts to reduce student truancy mean very little when we don’t know which programs work and which ones don’t. My AB 2141 is an important tool in helping to identify successful outcomes which will help us to better coordinate state and local efforts needed to keep students on track and in the classroom,” Assemblymember Hall said. “I am proud to author a bill that will help more students stay in the classroom and out of the courtroom. If schools aren’t tracking what students are missing you won’t be able to effectively fix the problem. Second graders are missing school and arriving late for very different reasons than 11th graders. Requiring County Offices of Education to forward the complete reports to the Department of Education will allow the State to identify trends and find best practices to address this crisis,” Assemblymember Holden said. In School +On Track also made the point that elementary school truancy is at the root of the state’s chronic criminal justice problems. Missing large amounts of school is one of the strongest predictors of falling behind academically and dropping out, even in early grades. According to one study, students who missed 10% of their kindergarten and first grade years scored, on average, 60 points below similar students with good attendance on third-grade reading tests. And, students who don’t read proficiently by the third grade are four times more likely not to receive a high school diploma than proficient readers, which puts them at risk of becoming a victim or perpetrator of crime. An increase of graduation rates by just 10% would result in a 20% drop in violent crime, and prevent 500 murders and more than 20,000 aggravated assaults per year in California. Annually, dropouts cost California taxpayers an estimated $46.4 billion in incarceration, lost productivity and lost taxes. As the District Attorney of San Francisco, Attorney General Harris started a citywide truancy initiative in 2006. Over a two-year period, then-District Attorney Harris’ initiative reduced truancy among elementary students in San Francisco by 23%, according to the San Francisco Unified School District. The initiative also served as a model for SB 1317 (Leno),

which defined “chronic truancy” for the first time under state law and established the initiative’s model of combining meaningful services with smart sanctions in the California Penal Code. The bill was sponsored by thenDistrict Attorney Harris and was enacted into law in 2010. Attorney General Harris’ Truancy Legislation Package SENATE BILL 1107 - Mandated Annual Report Legislation Author: Senator Bill Monning Mandate that the California Attorney General issue an annual report on elementary school truancy and chronic absenteeism similar to 2013’s In School + On Track report. This will help track truancy and chronic absence rates and highlight effective programs to improve attendance across the state. ASSEMBLY BILL 1866 Statewide Attendance Data System Author: Assemblymember Raul Bocanegra Enhance the state Department of Education’s student record system to include fields on truancy and absenteeism. California is one of only four states in the country that does not collect student attendance data. This will allow local school districts to monitor and analyze attendance patterns, as required under the LCFF. ASSEMBLY BILL 1672 Enhanced SARB (Student Attendance Review Board) Reports Author: Assemblymember Chris Holden Require that local SARBs (School Attendance Review Boards) report annually on referral rates to county offices of education and expand these reports to include information on student enrollment, absence and truancy rates, district attorney referrals and SARB intervention outcomes. Current annual SARB reports provide minimal information about intervention outcomes, so it is difficult to get the full picture of SARB efforts around the state. This bill ensures schools, districts and counties can evaluate the success of truancy intervention efforts. ASSEMBLY BILL 1643 Mandatory SARBs Author: Assemblymember Joan Buchanan Require that every county create a SARB. Forty years ago, the legislature created SARBs in order to divert students who were having school attendance issues from the juvenile justice system. County SARBs are a great local tool to provide training, guidance and oversight to local SARBs within a county to ensure consistency and achievement of the SARB’s core mission: improved attendance. ASSEMBLY BILL 2141 District Attorney Referral Outcome Reports Authors: Assemblymember Isadore Hall, Assemblymember Rob Bonta Require that when a parent or student is referred to district attorney’s office or any other agency engaged in prosecution or charges are considered to enforce state school attendance laws, the prosecuting agency must provide a report on the outcome of the referral. This helps school officials determine which outcomes are effective and guarantees baseline information sharing between referring agencies and prosecutors.

CHURCH From page 2A But shouldn’t this happen sometimes? Jesus said if we wanted to follow him, we would have to pick up our cross daily. There will be seasons of our life where following Jesus feels like we are carrying a cross. Dying to self feels that way. If we cut out or avoid the parts of our Christian life where we feel like we are carrying our cross, we will be immature. Granted, some people make too much of their Christian life about sacrifice, but that doesn’t mean we should avoid it all together. There’s no version of the Christian life where we get out of carrying our cross. 3. We all play a role. When we accept Christ, we become part of the Church, and we each play a role. This means we don’t need to accept church as normal - we can have a hand in changing and shaping it’s future - in making it meaningful to our own lives, and the lives of those around us. That said, church gatherings through thousands of years have been the same - gathering with other believers to worship together and listen to God’s word together. These groups of believers did their part to better the world around them. We now need to do are part. 4. It’s really a trust issue Really, going to church is a trust issue. Do I really believe God has my best intentions in mind? When God tells me to do something, do I believe he’s doing it to get on my nerves, or to save my life? Going to church is more than just about community. It is God’s lifeboat for a dying world. It is his bride.

ENROLL From page 3A to have it under control twice as likely to be diagnosed with diabetes suffer from an infant mortality rate that is more than twice

that of whites, with black infants four times more likely than their white counterparts to perish due to complications related to low birth weight. With the renewed focus on preventive and wellness that has come with Obamacare, AfricanAmericans stand to gain much better health outcomes — if they would only enroll. With weeks to go before the deadline, the statistics are troubling: according to data released last month by Covered California, blacks represented only 3.1 percent of Californians enrolled in , despite being close to seven percent of the state’s population. White Californians account for 54.7 percent of Obamacare enrollees, in the state. “It is extremely important [to be educated on the benefits of Obamacare] because all you hear and you see in the media is the negative stuff,” said Frederick B. Young Jr., president of the Tri-City NAACP in Solano County, which is partnering with other organizations to rally more blacks to enroll. “You don’t see the positives.” Yet, there are many. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, blacks are poised to benefit from Obamacare in a number of ways: • More than 120,000 Black Californians will benefit from the dramatic expansion of MediCal without having any expenses, according to the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network.. Many are unaware of this, but thanks to the Affordable Care Act, you are now eligible for Medi-Cal if you make less than $$16,104 as a single man or a woman or $32,913 as a family of four. Those earning less than $$46,680 as a single adult, or $95,400 for a family of four, will be eligible for subsidies when purchasing coverage through Covered California. Premiums cost no more than 10 percent of your income, with the government subsidizing the rest. • Nationally 7.3 million African Americans with private insurance now have access to expanded preventive services with no cost sharing. This includes services such as colonoscopy screening for colon cancer, Pap smears and mammograms for women, well-child visits, and flu shots for all children and adults. • Nationally an estimated 5.1 million African American women with private health insurance now have guaranteed access to women’s preventive services without cost sharing. These services include well-woman visits, HPV testing, counseling services, breastfeeding support, mammograms and screenings for cervical cancer, prenatal care, and other services. • Nationally 4.5 million elderly and disabled African Americans who receive health coverage from Medicare also have access to many preventive services with no cost-sharing, including annual wellness visits with personalized prevention plans, diabetes and colorectal cancer screening, bone mass measurement and mammograms. At www.coveredca.com, consumers can shop for, compare and obtain quality, low-cost health care plans and receive information about Medi-Cal enrollment.

OBAMA From page 5A education cash for students in poverty -- and special education research, were flatlined. The only increase in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act was in a section known as Part C, for babies, and a new competitive grant for results-driven accountability in special education. Obama’s budget is unlikely to win approval from the divided Congress. Shortly after the president’s speech, Rep. John Kline (R-Minn.), who chairs the House Education and the Workforce Committee, issued a skeptical statement. “Today’s budget proposal includes hundreds of billions of dollars in additional spending to fund new federal programs. In critical areas such as early learning, job training, and higher education, the president wants to make an existing maze of programs even more costly and confusing,” Kline said. “Spending more money on broken programs will not provide the support our most vulnerable children, workers, and families desperately need.” STUDENTS From page 5A Latina, don’t feel strange about reading the book.

RUNNER From page 6A to fill out paperwork that they may or may not know exists, in order to recoup this money. The State needs to reimburse the taxpayers as quickly and painlessly as possible – it is not our money,” said Assemblyman Donald Wagner (R-Irvine). The bills would apply to state taxes and fees paid by both businesses and individuals, including the controversial Fire Prevention Fee. Even if a class action lawsuit challenging the fire fee is successful, under current law only taxpayers who filed appeals within 30 days of the date on their bills would be eligible for refunds. BROWNLEY From page 6A that veterans receive the care they earned and deserve. Testimony from the hearing will be made available on the committee’s website at: http:// veterans.house.gov/hearing/ va-accountability-assessingactions-taken-in-response-tosubcommittee-oversight GREEN From page 7A The Rev. Lennox Yearwood, CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, which works to engage young minorities on policy issues, takes part in marches on the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. that challenge the fossil fuel industry. That’s why GreenFaith, a national organization that builds environmental leadership through congregations, drafted Yearwood to lead a Black History Month webinar to discuss “eco-leadership and divestment” with AfricanAmerican churches. ALEXANDER From page 7A ruled that when a defendant is convicted of multiple counts from the same crime, judges must make the sentences consecutive, not concurrent. Alexander said she fired the warning shot a few days after giving birth. Her estranged husband, Rico Gray, accused her of having an affair and questioned whether the baby was his. She says she locked herself in the bathroom until he broke through the door and shoved her to the floor. She ran into the garage, found a gun in a car and fired a “warning shot” after he said he would kill her. TIPS From page 8A • 10 to 20 percent off at many restaurant chains, including Claim Jumper, Denny’s and Outback Steakhouse. • 15 percent off many Geek Squad services from Best Buy. • A free 45-minute consultation with an Allstate Legal Services Network attorney, as well as 20 percent off member attorneys’ fees. A quick Google search will uncover numerous other senior discount resources. One popular site is SeniorDiscounts.com, an online directory of more than 220,000 U.S. business locations that offer discounts to people over 50. Registration is free, although they also offer a $12.95/ year premium that offers members-only discounts and other perks. Other good sites include Brad’s Deals, Sciddy.com and Savvy Senior. Other commonly available senior discounts include: • A 15 percent discount on the lowest available rail fare on most Amtrak trains for travelers over age 62. • Greyhound offers a 5 percent discount on unrestricted fares (over 62). • Southwest Airlines offers senior fares (over 65). Although not necessarily their lowest available rates, Southwest’s senior fares are fully refundable. • The U.S. Geologic Survey senior pass (over 62) provides free lifetime access to more than 2,000 government-managed recreational sites (including national parks), as well as discounts on camping and other amenities. Senior passes cost $10 in person or $20 by mail (http://store.usgs.

gov/pass/senior.html). • Verizon Wireless offers discounted mobile phone service for subscribers over 65. • Both Walgreens and Rite Aid offer monthly senior discount days for members of their rewards programs when most non-prescription items are 15 to 20 percent off. Ask your neighborhood pharmacy if they offer similar programs. In addition, many restaurants, department stores, movie theaters, museums, theme parks, banks, credit card issuers, utilities (including gas and electric, water, garbage, telephone and cable) and other businesses offer special discounts or promotions for seniors. Always ask before your purchase is rung up. Bottom line: Abundant resources are available to help seniors save money on purchases large and small. You just have to do a little research – and ask whether senior discounts are available. Remember, 10 percent here and 20 percent there can really add up. TAXES From page 8A Missing deadlines is often the result of not being organized, which is all too common for owners focused on generating sales and servicing clients, rather than maintaining their books. To keep organized, many owners are taking advantage of technology and turning to cloudbased systems like FreshBooks (www.freshbooks.com), which makes it easy to stay on top of accounting tasks like invoicing and expense tracking. Such systems also allow the owner to send their accountant all the reports and information they need with one click. SBDC From page 8A Huggins, is an introduction to the entrepreneurial mindset, the planning stages, products and pricing, marketing practices, managing sales, operations and HR, legal considerations, financing and funding sources. The workshop will be 1-3 p.m., March 21 and meets the third Friday of each month. *Preapproval required for participation. Topic will focus on the importance of creative thinking and how to effectively apply and develop it.

Anthony Mackie Comments on 'Fantastic Four' Casting Controversy

Anthony Mackie stars in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" as The Falcon, but in an interview with Marc Lamont Hill on HuffPost Live, the 35-year-old had more to discuss than just his franchise. When asked about the recent controversy that sprouted up in the wake of Fox casting Michael B. Jordan in "Fantastic Four" as Johnny Storm, a character who has been portrayed as white in the comics, Mackie said the problem lies with the viewers. "As an audience member, if you can't [accept that anyone can play a fictional

Whoopi Goldberg:

‘Shame’ on ABC for Not Inviting ‘The View’ to the Oscars

By Katherine Fung Whoopi Goldberg and her fellow “View” cohosts had a bone to pick with ABC. Goldberg, who was back from Los Angeles where she attended the Oscars ceremony on Sunday, criticized the network for not sending the “The View” to the awards to cover the show. “I had a great time at the Oscars. I want to say two things,” Goldberg began on Tuesday. “One is directed toward ABC. ABC, [it] was a shame to walk down that red carpet and see every other ABC show, daytime show represented -- except for Rachael Ray

Whoopi Goldberg -- and we weren’t there.” Goldberg, who presented at the Oscars, continued, “We are the only show -and I hate to ring my own bell, but what the hell -‘The View’ is the only show

that has an Oscar winner on the panel and I thought it was a crying shame that we weren’t there.” She praised Barbara Walters’ past Oscars coverage, and Walters made her position on the issue clear as well. “’The View’ was created 17 years ago,” Walters said. “Not that I’m going to be here forever, but I can gripe too. We don’t get promos the way other — we’re sort of the stepchildren [of ABC].” “Bill [Geddes] and I have done Academy Award specials year after year,” she added. “But, you know, we’re still here, Whoopi, and we’re very proud of you.”

Expect a New Kendrick Lamar Album This September

By Ryan Kristobak Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and the rest of the Top Dawg Entertainment crew are the cover story in the latest issue of Billboard. In it, Lamar, Q and Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith share stories of the label members' come-ups and the best business practice that made TDE the powerhouse it is today. At the very end of the story, it is revealed that Lamar is planning to drop his follow-up to "Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City" this coming September, as well as the long-awaited debut from Black Hippy (Lamar, Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul). In 2014, TDE hopes to lock and load its most ambitious slate of releases: Rashad and the label's first nonrap signing, New Jersey-based female singer-

Kendrick Lamar songwriter SZA, will be coming with albums, as will original team members Jay Rock and AbSoul. Meanwhile, Free thinks the long-awaited debut from Black Hippy the supergroup featuring Lamar, Q, Rock and AbSoul - is likely to appear in 2014; Tiffith indicates that TDE is planning to release

a new Lamar album this coming September, too. The whole piece is full of nuggets that help piece together the sudden rise of TDE. While we have received bits and pieces of the lives of Lamar, Q and the rest of the crew through their lyrics and numerous interviews, the examination of Tiffith's techniques add a fresh chapter to their story. "I had a little trick to make sure we hit No. 1 on iTunes," says Tiffith. "All records come out on Tuesday then peak after the first few days. When they were on the way down on Friday, that's when I'd drop TDE's s--t -- and we'd zoom right to the top. Even if we got to the top of the charts by selling 200 copies, we still had the perception of being No. 1, and people paid attention."

Some call her a hypocrite. Others call her a strong Christian woman. Tyler Perry calls her one of the most controversial characters he's ever written. She's Hanna Young, the struggling single mother played by actress Crystal Fox on OWN's "The Haves and the Have Nots." When Perry sat down with the cast of his hit drama series on "The Tyler Perry Show," he asked Fox how she felt about playing a character viewers love to hate. "You are one of the most controversial characters I have ever written," Perry tells Fox. "Because she's Christian. And lots of people, man. They are giving you, 'What kind of Christian does not talk to their daugh-

Reporter Asks Mindy Kaling Super Racist Question

Mindy Kaling Mindy Kaling was not nominated for an Oscar Sunday night, March 2, but she definitely wins for "Best Response to an Uncomfortable Question." The "Mindy Project" star was hanging out before the Oscars when she was approached by E! News correspondent Alicia Quarles to chat about the night. The two began talking about Kaling's FOX hit comedy and the men her character romances. "So who's your type?" Quarles asked Kaling. "Who's my type? Good looking," Kaling responded, not skipping a beat. "Okay, so any color?" "Yeah," the actress said, laughing. Earlier, Kaling joked about what people might think when they see her walk by on the Oscars red carpet, saying: "That's that girl from that show where she kisses all the white men."

Tyler Perry ter? What kind of Christian does not tell her daughter where her son is?'" Fox, who says she works on her faith every day in her own life, says she didn't steer away from the role. "I think when you're a real human being, if you show people the reality of people, it's a wonderful privilege and a

wonderful gift to be able to do that. So I think Hanna is a real strong Christian. She's human, though, and we make mistakes." That imperfection is exactly what Perry says he wanted to show in Hanna. "I did not want to write the perfect Christian -- because I don't know any," Perry says. "There was only one, and it was Jesus," he continues. "But on this earth, I feel like people have put so much emphasis on trying to be perfect that nobody wants to strive or even look towards Christianity. Everybody's looking at everything else because the image of it is that you have to be perfect, which is not so. It is not so. It is a process, it is about being the best you can be, and being as strong as you can be to grow through whatever you're going through."

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that Jane Ellen Graham, of Ventura, was ordered to pay more than $131,000 in restitution, following an evidentiary hearing in her criminal matter. On September 19, 2013, Graham was convicted of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter that caused the death of Scott James Townsley. Graham was placed on 36 months summary probation and ordered to perform 400 hours of community service. This matter was investigated by the Simi Valley Police Department. On March 7, 2012, Graham was making a left turn from westbound Cochran Street to northbound Stearns Street in Simi Valley. As Graham was turning, Mr. Townsley and Tammy Lynn Gritton-Jara were on a motorcycle traveling eastbound on Cochran Street. Graham's car collided with the motorcycle head on, ejecting both Mr. Townsley and Ms. Gritton-Jara. Mr. Townsley sustained blunt force injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Ms. Gritton-Jara was taken to the hospital in critical condition with multiple fractures. Lab work showed no traces of alcohol or drugs in either party. In the restitution hearing, Ms. Gritton-Jara testified and presented documentary evidence corroborating her claims. Judge Nancy Ayers awarded $124,858 in restitution to Ms. Gritton-Jara, in addition to monies she received from Graham in a civil settlement. Restitution of$7,520 was also ordered to be paid to Mr. Townsley's estate.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On March 6, the Oxnard Police Department’s Emergency Communications Center received numerous calls of a subject climbing onto a power pole in the 3400 block of South “C” Street. Upon their arrival, officers located a 22-year old male standing on top of a power pole with stereo headphones covering his ears. The initial Oxnard Police Officers on scene had previously attended Crisis Intervention Training (CIT). CIT training is designed to assist officers in de-escalating potentially dangerous situations with persons suffering from mental illness or experiencing an emotional crisis. With the assistance of Southern California Edison Company lift buckets, officers attempted to begin dialogue with him but he refused to acknowledge them. Edison Company employees assisted in making all of the nearby power lines safe. Based on the circumstances, members of the Oxnard Police Department Hostage Negotiation Team (HNT) and the Oxnard Fire Department were called to the scene to assist. HNT negotiators began communications with the subject from nearby lift buckets and were able to convince the subject to come down from the nearly 40-foot high pole. After nearly four (4) hours, an empty lift bucket was raised to the subject and he was safely rescued from the pole. The subject later told officers he was despondent over recent family issues. He was safely transported to a Ventura County Mental Health facility for evaluation.

Lorenzo Crawford, ageless Oxnard, CA “No, I believe over the past several years America views are more conservative than they were prior to Obama’s term. I believe it will be several years down the road before America inaugurates a female president.”

“I think the idea is cool, and pretty amazing.”

“I think we are ready for a female president…because women are more responsible financially.”

“I truly don’t believe we are ready for the female they have in mind. Female OK, but not Hillary.”

California Consumers May Now File Claims BGCOP Appoints Two New Members to its in Computer Chip Settlement Board of Directors

SAN FRANCISCO Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced that consumers may now file claims to recover money in a $310 million multistate settlement with major manufacturers of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) computer chips over price fixing allegations. “These companies betrayed the trust of consumers by artificially inflating prices to drive up profits,” Attorney General Harris said. “I encourage California consumers who purchased one of these

products to file a claim immediately.” Consumers who purchased computers, printers, video game consoles or other electronic devices with DRAM memory between 1998 and 2002 are eligible to make a claim before August 1, 2014 and could receive money from the settlement. To file a claim, visit www.DRAMclaims.com or call 1-800-589-1425. After completing an investigation in 2006, California, with other states, filed antitrust suits alleging that consumers over-paid

for electronic devices containing DRAM chips for purchases made from 1998 to 2002. DRAM is a common form of memory chip found in computers and other devices. The settlement, reached in conjunction with class actions, pays individuals and businesses that purchased these chips or devices containing these chips in the United States between 1998 and 2002 from someone other than a DRAM manufacturer, such as retailers like Best Buy or Staples. The settlement also requires that

these DRAM manufacturers implement antitrust compliance programs and enjoins them from certain conduct related to the sale of DRAM that would violate antitrust laws. Court filings associated with the settlement can be found here: http://dramclaims.com/settlement-details/court-documents/ A full list of defendant companies can be found here: http://dramclaims. com/faq/ For more information about the settlements, visit www.DRAMclaims.com

A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 04/16/14 at 9:00AM in Dept. J6 located at 4353 VINEYARD AVENUE, OXNARD, CA 93036 IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 877-484-9942 or 800-280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site www.

The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Date: February 24, 2014 NORTHWEST TRUSTEE SERVICES, INC., as Trustee Jeffrey Mosher, Authorized Signatory 1241 E.

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.

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

CFPB From page 8A that a troubled homeowner was seeking to modify or refinance their loan. The unfortunate consequence for affected homeowners was that they would learn of a foreclosure filing, not knowing that their servicer pursued dual interests. To the stakeholders assembled, Antonakes issued a warning that was as clear as it was direct: “Servicing transfers where the new servicers are not honoring existing permanent or trial modifications will not be tolerated. There will be no more shell games where the first servicer says the transfer ended all of its responsibility to consumers and the second servicer says it got a data dump missing critical documents.” Antonakes explained, “It’s not just about collecting payments. It’s about recognizing that you must treat Americans who are struggling to pay their mortgages fairly before exercising your right to foreclose. We have raised the bar in favor of American consumers and we are ready, willing and able to vigorously enforce that bar.” Charlene Crowell is a communications manager with the Center for Responsible Lending. She can be reached at Charlene. crowell@responsiblelending.org. OBESITY From page 9A So how about a Let’s Move 2! to encourage women your age and older to do something about their unhealthy weight and lack of exercise? You already have a move-inspiring playlist of songs that could be used. You could even add some lessons in healthful meals, like choosing more veggie-heavy sub sandwiches that appeal to both kids and adults. Just one suggestion: You might want to hold off pushing those kale chips. They’re great for you, yes, but they are “so green,” as comedians Will Ferrell and Jimmy Fallon put it on ”The Tonight Show.” Sincerely, Candy Sagon STOKE From page 9A MacKay says, “Think stroke, act fast, and call 9-1-1.” This applies to children and adults. In order to administer clot-busting drugs, you need to identify a stroke victim within 3-4.5 hours from the onset of symptoms. “Getting to the hospital quickly is an essential first step to develop strategies to improve access to emergency treatment in children,” MacKay said. Dr. MacKay suggests that child neurologists educate primary care physicians, pediatricians, heart specialists and emergency room physicians about stroke in children and parents of children with conditions associated with increased risk, such as sickle cell disease or heart conditions. FITNESS From page 9A best it can be. You want your body to be strong and flexible in multiple ways. If you always do yoga, add a cardio class. If running is your thing, incorporate strength training. Try switching up your routine every two weeks to keep your body on its toes. 5. Holding your breath “Waiting to exhale” stops oxygen from circulating blood properly and flowing to your muscles. This is an easy bad habit to adopt when focusing on a challenging move or lifting heavy weights, but the secret is that breathing will actually make things easier. STREET From page 9A she says. “It has allowed me to chase my dreams and make them come true.” Street retired from competitive sports after the 2002 Olympic games. Movie-goers can see her in the documentary “Doctored,” where she talks about the benefits of chiropractic care and can be seen receiving care. For more information, visit www.yes2chiropractic.org. LECTURE From page 11A they mismanage billion-dollar corporations, causing thousands of workers to lose their jobs but walk away with million dollar golden parachutes as a ‘reward” for their incompetence? And who holds corporations, run by predominantly White, male directors, responsible when they hire these failures to run their enterprises, running the risk of creating more collateral damage in the form of displaced workers and devastated families? It is near impossible to get a predominantly White jury to convict a police officer who is a White male and has killed a Black male with excessive force. And I’ve never heard a president tell White college students that riot after a sporting event that they should be more responsible and stop causing property damage and injuring police. It seems that responsibility is a one-way street on which only Black people are expected to travel. Yet, Black people have been responsible to the point that America needs to send us a “thank you” card. The fact that there has not been more violence in this country over

Page 9B

our treatment has always amazed me and is a testament to our divine connection. After experiencing the brutality of slavery, the betrayal of Reconstruction, the terror of Jim Crow and the dehumanization of economic oppression, the real message should be one of gratitude and respect. Why did millions of Blacks have to leave their birth homes in the south and migrate north? How were so many Blacks murdered and how did so many White juries let the killers go free? How did drug laws come into existence that were racist at face value and used for the mass incarceration of Blacks and disproportionately Black men? Why did we need a Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act if the Constitution is the law of the land and the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments supposedly guaranteed us citizenship and equal protection? And, who is irresponsible Mr. President? I do not need to hear the president’s personal story of redemption. Too many of us could one-up him when it comes to the burdens we have carried as Black men. What the nation should hear is the truth and the acknowledgement that the reason the president’s new initiative is needed is because young men of color are the latest in a line of Black casualties. Walter Fields is the Executive Editor of NorthStarNews.com. RUSSIA From page 11A productive via the Fracking process we have started. The problem is President Obama’s cronies, the environmental movement, will complain as they want to kill coal and stop fracking. We can’t stop as there is too much money to be made in trade and no proof of environmental danger. Nations like Russia, Brazil, China and India certainly aren’t caring about it as they use this energy like I-40 going east. Our energy is about national security and our economic future. This will also give our allies reason to stand strong and resist the evil ways of Putin. Our president gave a knee jerk reaction by exclaiming he will not attend the next G8 Summit in protest of the invasion. He should have checked with our allies first. None of them are saying such and will probably attend. Thus, we are going to be the only member absent and will be seen as an outlier. We aren’t going to isolate Russia but isolate ourselves. He should take this back. One thing we should do is start building the missile shield system we promised Poland and Czechoslovakia. This is justified now that we know Russia is longing for the old Soviet Union days of invading its neighbors and exploiting its power through bullying. This is about having courage and strength. Think of a school yard. Bullies do not choose to fight those who are willing to fight if it is necessary. Only those who are timid, unprepared and without courage will suffer from the bullying. America, let’s be strong once again Mr. Alford is the Co-Founder, President/ CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce®. Website: www.nationalbcc.org. Email: halford@nationalbcc.org. CROW From page 11A But before progressives celebrate too much, they’d do well to note that similar “religious freedom to discriminate” bills – all sponsored by Republicans – exist in the legislatures of nearly a dozen states. Progressives would do well to note that these proposals are cut from the same cloth as the voluminous GOP-sponsored bills intended to suppress the vote of Democratic Partyleaning Americans, especially Blacks, and restricting the reproductive rights of women. What all these have in common is the essential scam of the old Jim Crow laws: the zerosum claim that their “freedom” is dependent on their denying freedom to those they don’t like. That fact underscores one of the key political questions of the day: Is the Republican Party – not just in Arizona but everywhere – suffering from a kind of collective memory loss? Have they forgotten the evil the Jim Crow impulse created in an era not all that long ago? Or, are its members trapped in that favorite scenario of science fiction – the timeloop – that compels them to keep trying their once-successful “wedge politics” stratagem? Don’t they yet realize that that gambit has come home to roost as a virus within the party itself, making it congenitally unable to shed the old Jim Crow “values” of excluding all those who don’t look or act as they do? Finding the antidote to eliminate that poison from their system is the “freedom movement” the GOP needs to be focusing on. Lee A. Daniels is a longtime journalist based in New York City.

Hugh Masekela: 75th Birthday Celebration at the Walt Disney Concert Hall

Tuesday, March 18 at 8 p.m. at 1214 State Street, in Santa Barbara From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time.

And the extraordinary, Tony®-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance.
