New Ventura College VP Has High Hopes

By Tim Pompey For Patrick Jefferson, recently hired as an executive vice president at Ventura College, it’s been a long road to get here. A native of north Houston, he grew up in a neighborhood filled with tough economic circumstance called Acres Home. “I grew up in a house with a tin roof on it,” he said. He credits his dad, a groundskeeper, and his mother, an administrative assistant, with keeping college front and center in his life. He remembers his dad telling him, “You’re never going to work as hard as I have.” And Jefferson didn’t argue with him. When he finished high school, Jefferson ended up at Xavier, a historically black university in New Orleans. He acknowledged that the academics and the student life at Xavier pushed him to improve himself. Even more important, students on campus were encouraged to help each other be successful. “The first day of college,” he recalled, “I remember the president of the college asking us to look to our left, look to our right, and make sure that they are there with you at graduation. It was about helping everybody to succeed.” And Jefferson did suc-

Still, he admits that after graduating, it took him a while to find his footing. In fact, after moving to Los Angeles, he ended up selling televisions at Circuit City. That’s when he first considered the idea of teach-

ing. “A friend of mine told me that the school systems always need teachers,” he said. “That idea had never crossed my mind, but I needed a job so I thought I would teach until I figured this thing out.” Within a week of applying for a position as a substitute teacher in

the Compton school district, the city hired him. It quickly turned into a fulltime commitment. “I took a long-term temporary position at Dominguez High School,” Jefferson explained, “which turned into a permanent position.” While at Dominguez, Jefferson brought up some

of the student issues he dealt with, things like foster care, poverty, violence, malnutrition, and an attitude of nihilism. He admitted that it frustrated him. “I felt helpless as a teacher and I felt powerless to do something about it.” As a result, he left teaching to work on solving some of these issues. Initially, he was hired to work with The Youth Opportunity Movement, a joint partnership between the City of LA and the Department of Labor. Eventually he took a position at Pasadena City College as their director of Math/Science for Upward Bound. When he started his Master’s program at Loyola Marymount, he was fortunate to meet some influential people who pulled him into their orbit. As he tells it: “I found a really good mentor in Lisa Sugimoto, the vice president of student services. She encouraged me to go get my doctorate and told me, ‘It’s going to open some doors for you and get you the skills to get where you’re going.’” She also stated clearly, “You’re going to do this.” He described how the influence of a mentor can help someone see new things in a different way. “If JEFFERSON, See page 12A

Around the Tri-Counties An upset mind will create an upset body Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan January 18, 1991, Saddam Hussein, launched his first SCUD missile attack, on the nation of Israel. The doctors noted something that I find very incredible. The death rate on that day in 1991, of heart attacks went up by 54%, here’s what’s amazing, the death rate that went up from heart attacks were not from those who had been hit by the SCUD missile, but from those who had the fear of the SCUD missiles landing. In other words, that day there was something greater attacking their minds than the missile that hit their land. You would be sur-

prised how many people are wounded psychologically in life and as a consequence it has an effect on the body. The Lord wants to move everything from your mind that is stressing you out so you can move forward to a healthy place. There’s over 200 hills in Jerusalem and the enemy made a big mistake when he picked the hill called Golgotha to crucified our Lord, Golgotha means the place of the skull, the skull protects and insulates the mind, I find it interesting that where our Savior died was in the place to fight for our minds. That’s really what the enemy is, after your mind; the battle is in your mind. The Lord fought for your sanity and he fought for your thoughts on that day why he was on the cross; please don’t underestimate the totality of your salvation. When Jesus was crucified, it was not for cars, clothes, and money, it was so, our thoughts could be set free. You are set free from everything that has been Paid Advertisement

holding your mind hostage, you are set free positionally and from authority, but you may not be set free in your own experience. This is because most people don’t know their free. And like the elephant whose chain to the ground when it is young, even after the chain is removed it still never moves outside of its circle, even though the chain is off the leg of the elephant, the chain never leaves the mind of the elephant…and this, my friend is what keeps people in bondage. An upset mind will create an upset body. Researchers have found that a mind which is the psyche produces sickness in the body, which is Soma, and as a consequence we have something called psychosomatic. In other words, the mind has a direct impact of what’s going on in the body. 2/3 of doctor visits are a result of what’s going on in the mind. Psychosomatic in some cases can be traced UPSET, See page 12A

What Do You Deserve? The Mind Matters By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC “Letting go of a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.” ~ C.S. Lewis Do you deserve to be angry? Are there circumstances in your life that are unjust? Have you had an experience where you were treated badly? Maybe you deserve to be sad too! Or frustrated. Or disappointed. I’d like you to consider that even though circumstances may create a right to be angry, you also have a right to be happy instead. You deserve it. Letting go of the negative thoughts which create the negative emotions is always in your best interest. Do you realize that whoever you are angry with or whatever you are angry

about is not experiencing the results of your wrath? But you are!!! When you’re angry with your boss, or spouse, or kid, or government…they don’t suffer what you suffer. When you think angry thoughts, your body suffers. You may grind your teeth or clench your fists. You may experience flushing, paling or sweating. However you feel your anger, it’s much like the fight/flight response of survival. Stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol flood through your body. Your amygdala, the part of the brain that deals with emotion, is going crazy. It wants to act! And it wants to act right now! Meanwhile, the frontal lobe which controls reasoning, is desperately pulsing to balance it out. This is why it’s a good idea to count to ten before acting!

Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC

If you constantly think you deserve to be angry, this state of response can start to cause damage. Your nervous system is overworked and can eventually become overexerted. You can potentially damage your heart, your liver and your kidney. Anger may also be accompanied by DESERVE, See page 12A

Do More Of What You Love Doing Inez Knows

Inez Lanns

By Inez Lanns I have noticed that people are so busy in life that many do not take the time to participate in activities that they truly enjoy. Try not to be so busy with life that you forget to do the things that make you smile, laugh and bring you peace. On top of that, I run into people all of the time who do not even know what they truly enjoy because they have spent most of their time doing what other people want them to do or things for other people to the degree that they have neglected themselves. Some people have never taken the time do something for pure pleasure. Do you know what you enjoy doing? You don’t even necessarily have to be

good at it, but when you do it you know that it’s something you should do more of. You have fun when do it! It leaves you feeling content! It brings nothing but good into your life; it does not add anything negative or any sorrow to it. It makes you feel great, and when you do it you know that it is something you should be doing. If you haven’t found that thing yet, it is time you start looking for it! Take some time out of your busy schedule and see what is of interest to you. You are drawn to and passionate about certain things for a reason. It is a part of what makes you

The People’s Throb When It Comes To People, Please Describe Your Definition Of Beauty?

“Beauty is what a person projects both internally and externally. Beauty is really subjective, and it’s not just defined by looks. For example, the essence of a woman can help augment her physical beauty, as well as take away from it. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this “beholder” thinks that all women are beautiful.”

“Beauty should be defined by a person’s character and personality. In today’s society beauty is defined by the success and wealth of an individual, whether it’s a new job, new car, weight loss or money.”

“I believe that beauty is in the inside. Love everyone for who they are, not the way they look. Love each other and spread some love. Mellow vibes.”

“When it comes to my definition of beauty, it’s a combination of inner and outer beauty and impossible to define.”

“True beauty is that valued essence of people. It never fades. As time goes on it finds ways to manifest itself.”

“My definition of beauty comes in many ways. Inside and out. It can show in a smile, or a laugh. Beauty comes from the heart and can be contagious. Yes, people can be physically attractive because they are physically fit. But they can also be very ugly. Being beautiful is a choice, inside and out.”

Starbucks specifically noted their retail success in Harlem in New York, Bronzeville in Chicago and the Crenshaw district in Los Angeles claiming the partnership “anchored redevelopment of the areas.” In 2010, Magic Johnson sold back his 50 percent stake in the 100-plus Urban Coffee Opportunities locations to the parent company and in a joint release with Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, declared success in creating economic opportunities and delivering quality service by bringing a popular brand into the Black community and providing more than 2,100 jobs paying an estimated $29.8 million in salaries/ wages and benefits. “Through our partnership with Starbucks, we were able to serve as an economic catalyst in urban cities through the creation of new jobs, use of local suppliers, support for community-based organizations, and by attracting other retailers to the area,” said Mr. Johnson. “Our success also validates the loyalty and support of urban consumers to companies who bring quality products and services which meet their needs into their communities.” It would be hard to argue with him.

By Brian Melley LOS ANGELES — Embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling lost his attempt to block the $2 billion sale of the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. In allowing the deal to go forward, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas sided Monday with Sterling’s estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, who negotiated the record sale after the NBA banned the 80-year-old billionaire for making offensive remarks about blacks. Shelly Sterling sought the probate judge’s approval to ink the deal after taking over the family trust that owns the team because doctors found Donald Sterling had signs of Alzheimer’s disease and couldn’t manage his affairs. The judge said Shelly

Sterling had negotiated a good deal and the removal of her husband as a cotrustee was in good faith and not part of a secret plan to seize the team. Shelly Sterling hugged her lawyer and wept after the judge explained his ruling from the bench. “I can’t believe it’s over,” she said. “This is the best thing.” An unusual provision of the ruling bars Donald Sterling from seeking a court-ordered delay of the sale as he appeals. His lawyers plan to seek permission from an appellate court to file an appeal. Sterling was not in court for the ruling. Bobby Samini, one of his lawyers, said Sterling reacted calmly to the news and told his lawyers they had to keep battling on other fronts. Sterling testified during

the case that he would fight the NBA until his death. With lawsuits pending in state and federal courts, the ruling in Los Angeles County Superior Court is unlikely to put an end to the bizarre saga that began in April when a recording surfaced of Sterling scolding his young girlfriend for bringing black men to Clippers games. The NBA moved quickly to ban Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million. Sterling was apologetic after the audio recording went viral, but his mea culpa backfired when he criticized Lakers great Magic Johnson, who had been photographed with Sterling’s girlfriend, as a bad role model for kids because he had HIV. Sterling was roundly condemned from locker rooms to the CLIPPERS, See page 12A

The Los Angeles Lakers confirmed Byron Scott is their new head coach Monday night. The Lakers finally made the long-anticipated announcement in a news release.

Scott told reporters last weekend he had been hired by the Lakers, who have been without a head coach since Mike D’Antoni resigned April 30. Scott is the 25th head coach in the 16-time NBA champions’ franchise history. Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said he conducted “an extensive and thorough search” with team owner Jim Buss.

“We’re proud to welcome Byron back to the Lakers family as our next head coach,” Kupchak said. “Byron has proven himself at the highest lev-

Sports News Tiger Woods Looks Ahead to Ryder Cup Dereck Chisora Fractures Hand, After Recording His Worst Finish Pulls Out of Fight with Tyson Fury

By Doug Ferguson HOYLAKE, England — Even after his worst 72hole finish in a major, Tiger Woods says he would pick himself for the Ryder Cup team. His first major of the year, and second tournament since March 31 back surgery, wasn't much of an audition for U.S. captain Tom Watson. Woods was never the same after opening the British Open with a 69. The mistakes kept piling up, and so did the big numbers, and he closed with a 3-over 75 at Royal Liverpool. "I just made too many mistakes," Woods said. He finished at 6-over 294, matching his highest score in the British Open. Only three players had a worse score, including U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer, and Woods finished in 69th place. His previous worst was a tie for 40th in the PGA Championship last year and the 2012 Masters. Worse yet, he didn't even beat the 64-year-old captain. Watson birdied his last hole for a 68, "It's just one day. It's a snapshot," Watson said. "It's not a big deal." Still, the concern was clear. Watson was speaking to the media as Woods was still on the course when he asked if Woods was shooting under par. Told that he was 4 over at the time,

Billy Joe Saunders and Emanuele Blandamura's matchup for a vacant European middleweight title now moves up as the card's main event. In a statement, Chisora expressed disappointment at having to pull out and promised to fight Fury once he is healed and cleared to compete again. “I can’t tell you how disappointed I am to have to pull out of the fight against Fury, but it is on the advice of my specialist that I have to do this," he said. "I’m sorry for the fans who will get to miss this great fight between me and Tyson this Saturday, but once my hand is healed and I’m given the all-clear

I’m sorry to have to pull out on Fury, as I know that he had been training hard and it was going to be

a great fight between two top athletes and I hope we can get it on again soon.” Chisora previously lost to Fury via unanimous decision in 2011. The Zimbabwe-born fighter is currently riding a five-fight win streak, however. The twenty five yearold Fury is still undefeated, at 22-0 and has finished his last two fights.

Bill Russell OK After Collapsing During Tahoe Speech

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Celtics officials say NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell is doing OK after collapsing during a speaking engagement near Lake Tahoe. Team spokesman Brian Olive says the 80-year-old Russell felt faint after the Thursday morning fall at the Hyatt Regency resort in Incline Village, Nevada, but was planning on returning home to Seattle this evening. Witness Michael Rooney tells The Associated Press that Russell was telling a story about Wilt Chamberlain to a roomful of Konica Minolta employees when he started to

NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell sway at the podium and then fell backward. Rooney says Russell seemed to be conscious as

hotel personnel and first responders came to his aid. The meeting was cut short and attendees left. Russell, a five-time NBA MVP, is considered one of the best players in basketball history. He won 11 championships in 13 years as a center with the Celtics. As a player-coach for the last two, he was the first black head coach in a major U.S. pro sport. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1975, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2010 and was honored last year with a statue outside Boston's City Hall.

Cavs Coach Dismisses Andrew WigginsKevin Love Trade Speculation

Keelan Johnson he pushed a police officer investigating a bar brawl. Officials said Keelan Johnson, a first-year safety, was arrested following a confrontation with officers outside a bar in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe, home of Arizona State University. Johnson played in 49 games for the school. A probable cause statement says Johnson ''violently pushed'' an officer in the chest, causing him to strike his head against a tree. Police say Johnson appeared drunk and refused officers' orders. He has been charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Eagles spokesman Derak Boyko said the team is disappointed in Johnson's arrest but is still trying to gather the facts. It was not known if Johnson had an attorney.

By Jon Krawczynski LAS VEGAS — Andrew Wiggins came to summer league to get an early education on the NBA game, from playing against better competition to learning about what his new coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers will demand of him as a pro. The 19-year-old Canadian is also receiving a crash course in the NBA rumor mill. Since he arrived in Las Vegas and found out LeBron James was coming to Cleveland with him, Wiggins has heard his name brought up in possible trade scenarios as the Cavaliers pursue Minnesota All-Star Kevin Love. They continued with several outlets reporting that the Cavaliers have decided to make the No. 1 overall pick available, a prerequisite from the Timberwolves to get any deal for Love done. But two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the Cavaliers' position has remained unchanged and that no offer including Wiggins has been made to Minnesota. The people requested anonymity because neither team was publicly com-

Andrew Wiggins menting on trade talks. "Rumors are rumors. That's why they call them rumors," Cavs coach David Blatt said. "Sooner or later in one's career, you're going to have to deal with it. If he has to deal with it now, then so be it. It's summer league. He's learning everything as he goes along." Wiggins scored 21 points in 31 minutes in a loss to the Houston Rockets. He showcased his superior athleticism by creating mismatches and getting to the free throw line at will, making 15 of 20 free throws and getting one jaw-dropping, chasedown block in transition. Several fans made remarks during the game about the Cavaliers getting Love,

but Wiggins was unfazed. "What you've got to like about the kid is that it doesn't make a difference if it's the fourth game of summer league in seven or eight days, or if people are keying on him or the crowd has funny things to say to him," Blatt said. "He goes out there and really plays and has a nice calm about him and a real good demeanor. Andrew's going to be a high-level player. It's good to see." The Cavaliers and Timberwolves have been engaged in discussions since before the draft for Love, who can opt out of his contract next summer. That stipulation gives Love tremendous influence on where he ends up, and he initially balked at joining a Cavaliers team that appeared to be in rebuilding mode after missing the playoffs and firing coach Mike Brown. That all changed when James decided to leave the Miami Heat and return to Cleveland, where the Akron native played for the first seven seasons of his career. James' signing changed Love's mind about going to Cleveland and the Cavaliers again started conversations with the Wolves.

Ventura, Calif.--Between 1978 and 2013, the cost of college textbooks increased 812 percent*. With the significant cost of today’s textbooks, many students struggle to buy needed books for their classes. To ease their burden, on Aug. 13 at the college’s Library & Learning Resource Center, an expected 1, 000 Ventura College students will borrow up to three textbooks each for the semester through the Textbook Lending Library program. In addition to the free lending service, the Ventura College Foundation supports a reserve textbook collection of nearly 1,500 books, where students can use the book for two-hour periods within the library. Between the two collections, includ-

ing books at Ventura College’s Santa Paula campus, nearly 7,000 textbooks are accessible as a free alternative to purchasing books. “Students are always very grateful for the opportunity to get free textbooks. Some of the students even choose their classes based on the availability of free textbooks,” said Tanya Shaffer, interim learning resources supervisor. “It’s great to see the generosity of the Foundation helping thousands of students achieve their academic goals.” The Ventura College Foundation annually funds over $50,000 for the Textbook Lending Library. Between the lending library and reserve collection, approximately 9,000 students take advantage of the program. “The Textbook Lend-

ing Library is an important Foundation initiative that greatly increases student success rates and helps keep college more affordable,” said Norbert Tan, executive director of the Ventura College Foundation. “Textbooks account for 72 percent of a two-year college’s tuition cost**, making the program critical for our students.” The program primarily is supported through the generosity of donors.

If not, you'll need to determine what you can afford to spend without blowing your overall budget. Here are a few organizational and money-saving tips: • Before you shop, make a comprehensive list for each child.

State News AG Harris to Convene Multinational Waters Pushes to Increase Law Enforcement Summit Consumer and Investor Protections

SAN FRANCISCO -Attorney General Kamala D. Harris convened state and federal officials from the U.S., Mexico and El Salvador for a multinational summit focused on the use of technology to fight transnational organized crime on Sunday, July 20. The summit, was held in association with the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Western Attorneys General (CWAG), will focus on human trafficking, intellectual property violations and money laundering. “Transnational criminal organizations are increasingly using sophisticated networks and technology to commit crimes against the people of California, the

Attorney General Kamala D. Harris United States, and globally,” Attorney General Harris said. “This summit will build on the partnership we forged in Mexico City this March to combat the increased use of social media in human trafficking and

disrupt money laundering schemes in the U.S.-Mexico border region. I want to thank my colleagues and international partners for joining me to address this serious issue.” Attendees at the summit, the 2014 CWAG Alliance Partnership Binational State Attorney General Exchange, included U.S. state attorneys general, U.S. federal officials, Mexico Attorney General Jesús Murillo Karam, El Salvador Attorney General Luis Martinez, and Mexico state attorneys general. The summit followed a U.S. delegation visit led by Attorney General Harris to Mexico City in March to strengthened relationships HARRIS, See page 12A

As the House of Representatives considers the harmful Republican financial services and general government funding proposal, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee, offered three amendments designed to provide adequate resources to our financial regulators. The amendments build off concerns raised by Waters, when she criticized Republicans for attempting to use an appropriations measure to make controversial legislative changes that would undermine consumer protection, weaken important Wall Street reforms and

Brownsville, Texas, until moving to California’s Imperial Valley with his family at 14, was praised by members of the state Latino Legislative Caucus. “Mr. Cuéllar is living proof that the American Dream is alive, well, and still thriving,” state Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) said in a statement. “From modest beginnings, Mr. Cuéllar has demonstrated a mastery of the law and a commitment to impartial justice.” Cuéllar will succeed the court’s most conservative justice, Marvin Baxter, disrupting Republican control over the court they’ve held since 1987, the San Francisco Chronicle noted.

SACRAMENTO — Assemblymember Das Williams (D - Carpinteria) applauds efforts to enforce water conservation in California. The State Water Resources Control Board has approved an emergency regulation to approve fines up to $500 a day for residents who waste water on lawns, landscaping, and car washing. “Our drought is such a threat that voluntary measures are not enough to protect our future. It is crucial that we all do our part to conserve California’s water. From fixing broken sprinklers, cease watering landscaping, to taking shorter showers, simple steps can go a long way.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters hurt regulators’ ability to protect our economy. She raised concerns about provisions within the legislation, H.R. 5016, that place improper funding restrictions on the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Consumer Fi-

nancial Protection Bureau (CFPB), among others. The three amendments offered by Waters included: An amendment to restore the independent funding of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Under the GOP finding measure, the Bureau’s independent funding stream would be eliminated, instead tied to the highly political Congressional appropriations process. Despite being directly relevant to the provisions within the bill, Republicans objected to the amendment, ruling it out of order on an appropriations measure. An amendment to fully WATERS, See page 12A

Assemblymember Das Williams Many local water agencies offer conservation incentives, like irrigation control devices and help with landscaping,” said Williams. California is experiencing the worst drought in nearly four decades. The new conservation regulation is aimed at reducing

outdoor water use. The regulation adopted by the State Water Board, mandates minimum actions to conserve water supplies both for this year and into 2015. Most Californians use more water outdoors than indoors. In some areas, 50 percent or more of daily water use is for lawns and outdoor landscaping. This regulation will expect Californians to stop washing down driveways and sidewalks; watering of outdoor landscapes that cause excess runoff; using a hose to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle, and using potable water in a fountain or decorative water feature, unless the water is recirculated. The regulation makes an exception for health and safety circumstances.

Sacramento – California taxpayers who disagree with local assessors’ valuation of their property can contact the local assessor’s office to discuss the assessment or appeal their property tax bills. “Thanks to Proposition 13, property taxes remain predictable and reasonable for California homeowners,” said Board of Equalization Member George Runner. “Even so, taxpayers should carefully review their bills and know they

have the right to challenge any mistakes.” The window to file an appeal varies by county, and ends either Sept. 15 or Dec. 1, 2014. That process is only available to taxpayers who are challenging the assessed value of their property as of Jan. 1. Different appeal periods apply to taxpayers who are appealing an assessment after a property was sold, underwent new construction, or was damaged in a natural TAX, See page 12A

Compton USD Member Skyy Fisher Vows to Keep Seat After Sexual Assault Arrest

A Compton school board member arrested last week on suspicion of sexually assaulting a sleeping man, said he will not step down despite numerous calls for his resignation. School board member Skyy Fisher, 31, was arrested on sexual assault charges of an unconscious victim reported law enforcement officials. On Tuesday, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for his arrest on suspicion of oral copulation of a person who was asleep or unconscious. The Los Angeles Times reported that Fisher was taken to San Diego County and booked at the Vista Detention Center. He was held on $100,000 bail and released Thursday. According to an arrest warrant, a 26-year-old man told San Diego police in April that Fisher had performed oral sex on him as he slept. The two men were on a trip to San Diego and shared a room, but were sleeping in separate beds, according to the arrest warrant. The man told police he woke as Fisher was sexually assaulting him. In May, authorities obtained a search warrant to collect Fisher’s DNA. An analysis confirmed the presence of Fisher’s DNA

Assemblyman Jeff Gorell Statement on Job Cuts at Amgen

Thousand Oaks, CA – Assemblyman Jeff Gorell (R-Camarillo) released the following statement about the announcement that Amgen would be cutting over 2,400 jobs worldwide. Although I am disappointed to hear that Amgen is making employee cutbacks throughout the nation, I am pleased that they are retaining a substantial workforce here in Ventura County. While it's difficult for those employees who may be leaving, I will be working closely with Amgen to help their displaced workers find jobs and stay in

our community. Amgen has one of the most talented workforces in the nation and retaining these people in our community would be a tremendous benefit for everyone. Amgen has always been an excellent corporate neighbor. I have enjoyed working with them in the past and I look forward to helping them in any way possible to grow their business and to continue to expand their future operations in Ventura County. Assemblyman Jeff Gorell, R-Camarillo, represents the 44th Assembly District in the California Legislature.

Renisha McBride Shooter Told Cops He Didn’t Know His Gun was Loaded

DETROIT — A suburban Detroit man who killed an unarmed woman on his porch immediately suggested to police it was an accident and that he didn’t know his shotgun was loaded, according to recorded remarks played in court. Theodore Wafer, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, met officers outside his Dearborn Heights home after they responded to his 911 call around 4:30 a.m. on Nov. 2. “What happened here?” Sgt. Rory McManmon asked, according to the recording played by prosecutors. “A consistent knocking on the door, and I’m trying to look through the windows and the door,” Wafer said. “It’s banging somewhere else so I open up the door, kind of like who is this?

Man Accused of Threatening to Kill Obama, Other Politicians

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A man left profanity-filled voicemails with Tennessee’s homeland security office threatening to kill President Barack Obama and other officials, saying in one that he would “light Nashville up,” according to court documents. Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney and former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan were also mentioned as targets in the four voicemails left by Jimmie Johnson Jr. on July 11 and 12, according to an affidavit filed by prosecutors in Nashville. The affidavit says the messages include threats against Obama and others saying that Johnson will “blow them all up” at an airport and come with an assault rifle “and kill all you.” One message refers to Obama by a racial slur. The affidavit says John-

son made the calls from his cellphone and identified himself by name. He was arrested and is charged with misdemeanor harassment. Johnson, 45, is from Ardmore, on the Alabama line. The affidavit says Johnson also threatened to have someone shoot a Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agent who works on drug investigations in that part of the state. Johnson also threatened Tennessee’s Homeland Security adviser. Court records don’t list an attorney for Johnson. He’s jailed on a $5,000 bond on the harassment charge and another $20,000 bond on DUI charges. A spokeswoman with the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security declined to comment on the case because the investigation is ongoing.

By Herb Boyd NEW YORK – Rev. Al Sharpton was in the middle of his speech recounting how Eric Garner, 43, had been killed in a chokehold by NYPD officer when Garner’s wife collapsed by his side on the stage of the National Action Network in Harlem. “They will try to scandalize the decease,” Sharpton said of the NYPD and what he anticipated they would say. “The issue is not about an unarmed man selling cigarettes…It’s about a man who was subjected to a chokehold and is no longer with us.” At that point, Esaw Garner collapsed and had to be held up by Sharpton and Rev. Herbert Daughtry, another prominent activist. After she was led from the stage and to a backroom,

Deval Patrick Aims to Unseat Fellow Governor Paul LePage

By Alex Lazar Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) campaigned for Rep. Mike Michaud (D-Maine), who is running to unseat Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R). Patrick, who attended a fundraising luncheon along with Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin (D), criticized LePage’s decision to skip conferences with his fellow New England governors focusing on regional issues. “It may surprise the governor, and surprise you, that we don’t sit around the table spouting partisan slogans,” Patrick said. “We’re

Gov. Deval Patrick about problem solving.” Patrick, who chose not to run for a third term as governor this year, is often mentioned as a potential

Democratic presidential candidate. Though he has denied he’s interested in a 2016 run, he has left the door open for a future bid. Shumlin is running for a third term in Vermont. As for LePage, his tenure as governor has been controversial. Among other things, he has been accused of (and denied) discussing the idea of hanging Democratic leaders and has proposed that a state ethics panel fact-check campaign statements. If elected, Michaud would be the first openly gay governor of a U.S. state.

From page 3A Englewood neighborhood where crime and violence is high, and in many areas, business investments are low. Some sections in Englewood are described as “food deserts” where reasonably priced and nutritious food is hard to get, especially for those without vehicles, yet there are complaints that the corporation is coming in to exploit, not serve. Ms. Alleyne says it takes a “collaborative effort” involving the private sector, non-profits, governmental policy and ordinary people to solve the economic problems that exist, but they are not insurmountable. Forbes contributor Cedric Muhammad says neither the activists nor the corporations are going far enough. “Neither the activists who fight the exploitation of incoming corporations nor those who raise the issue of our being ‘underserved’ go deep enough to the root of the problem,” said Mr. Muhammad. “They don’t advocate the independent pooling of financial resources which could provide investment to struggling small businesses, talented entrepreneurs and skilled professionals at home.

This is what true economic justice looks like.” Minister Farrakhan has long lamented the brain drain that occurs within the Black community, as well as the reluctance of those who have achieved professional success to invest in their own communities. He has also encouraged the learned and professional class within the Black community to use their knowledge and expertise for wealth production for their people and not simply to accrue wealth for themselves.

NAACP, CBC Lament High Rate African Americans Gaining of Black Unemployment Ground Developing Real Estate

By James Wright While the nation appears to be in an economic recovery, leaders of the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus bemoan the high number of unemployed blacks. The Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics report the national unemployment rate decreased to 6.1 percent in June; however, the unemployment rate for blacks was 10.9 percent, more than double that of Asians and whites. Dedrick Asante-Muhammad Sr., director of the NAACP’s economic department, said increasing job opportunities for public sector jobs is the key to higher wages for more Americans, particularly blacks. “The 288,000 jobs added this month indicates that the economy overall is beginning to recover,” he said. “However, black un-

Small Businesses Owners:

Raising Minimum Wage Makes Good Business Sense

By Freddie Allen WA S H I N G T O N (NNPA) – More than 60 percent of small business

owners with employees favor increasing the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 in three stages,

according to a new survey. The poll, sponsored by the American Sustainable Business Council, an advocacy group that represents more 200,000 businesses and Business for a Fair Minimum Wage, described on the group’s website as “a national network of business owners and executives who believe a fair minimum wage makes good business sense.” The results from the poll conducted in June, showed that nearly 60 percent of small business owners say that raising the minimum wage would increase consumer purchasing power. Blacks disproportionately work in low-wage jobs, accounting for 11 percent of the total labor force, but more than 14 percent of low-wage workers. Roughly 57 percent of low-wage workers are White. More than half of those surveyed also agreed that “that with a higher minimum wage, businesses would benefit from lower employee turnover and increased productivity and customer satisfaction.” Six percent of the business owners in the survey were Black and roughly 80 percent were White. Ninety-nine percent of all African American businesses don’t have any employees. For proponents of a higher federal minimum wage, the poll results undercut the argument that raising the minimum wage would hurt small businesses.

Four Reasons to Buy a Home Right Now

By Blanche Evans The nature of market bottoms is that it's hard to tell one's occurred until prices and sales volume start to rise again. That's why the best time to buy is when market conditions suggest a bottom. That means there's still some risk for homebuyers, since no one has a crystal ball that predicts the future. To take advantage of low mortgage interest rates and home prices still well below previous records, you may have to take a risk, such as riding out another short-term dip in property values. Here are four reasons to buy a home right now. 1. Houses are a great hedge against inflation The Labor Department also says the May Computer Price Index is up 2.13 percent year-over-year. The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.3 percent in May, its largest increase since August 2011. The CPI excludes volatile food and energy, so

Blanche Evans you can bet that the accelerating cost of things, otherwise known as inflation, also includes housing. You may be paying more for goods and services, but if you're a homeowner, you're better off financially. A major asset such as a home, purchased at a fixed cost, becomes more valuable when prices inflate. 2. Housing price increases are slowing The median existinghome price was $213,400, over 5 percent above May

2013. Considering that the national median existinghome price was $158,800 in January 2011. That's when the PMI Insurance Company said home prices relative to income are below market fundamentals in more than half of U.S. states. Prices overcorrected during the recession, and then they soared by the double-digits in 2013. Now housing is correcting once again from an overcorrection. 3. Mortgage interest rates are still low During the recession, mortgage interest rates for a benchmark 30-year, fixed-rate loan, averaged 4.32 percent. Now they're close to that and there's no recession. That means mortgage rates have nowhere to go but up. 4. Pent-up demand ready to release Since the recession, household formation fell dramatically to one percent of the national population. But considering that the HOME, See page 12A

Brain-healthy Lifestyle Works Third Hand Smoke: to Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease The New Cancer Risk for Children

By Elizabeth Agnvall After just two years, older people who exercised, socialized and ate a healthy diet improved their memory, focus and other signs of brain health, finds a breakthrough study presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. In another piece of good news, researchers announced at the conference that dementia rates are dropping in the United States—quite possibly because people are getting the message that healthy living can protect brain health. “These findings show that prevention is possible, and that it may be good to start early,” lead author Miia Kivipelto from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden told Time. For the lifestyle study, 1,260 Finnish adults ages 60 to 77 at high risk for developing Alzheimer’s

disease were divided into two groups. Half the participants were put on an lifestyle intervention program that included diet, exercise, social activities and brain training, as well as careful monitoring of blood pressure and cholesterol. A control group got regular health advice. After two years, the group that received the intensive lifestyle interventions performed significantly better than the control group on

tests of memory, planning, problem solving and quick thinking. This study is the “first randomized control trial showing that it is possible to prevent cognitive decline” using a combination of lifestyle interventions in older adults, said Kivipelto. The scientists plan a sevenyear follow-up study that will track how many of the study participants get Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.

Addressing Abuse of Older Americans

Leaders in the fight against elder abuse announced on July 10 a framework for tackling the highest priority challenges to elder abuse prevention and prosecution, and called on all Americans to take a stand against the serious societal problem of elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation. Research suggests that 1 in 10 Americans over the age of 60 have experienced elder abuse or neglect, and that people with dementia are at higher risk for abuse. Supported by the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, The Elder Justice Roadmap was developed by harnessing the expertise of hundreds of public and private stakeholders from across the country and by gathering their input. The goal of these expert summits was to identify the most critical priorities and concrete opportunities for greater public and private investment and engagement in elder abuse issues. The Elder Justice Roadmap, published July 10, reflects the knowledge and perspectives of these experts in the field and will be considered by the Elder Justice Coordinating Council and others in developing their own strategic plans to prevent and combat elder abuse. “The Roadmap Project is an important milestone

for elder justice,” Associate Attorney General Tony West said. “Elder abuse is a problem that has gone on too long, but the Roadmap report released today can change this trajectory by offering comprehensive and concrete action items for all of the stakeholders dedicated to combating the multi-faceted dimensions of elder abuse and financial exploitation,” he explained. “While we have taken some important steps in the right direction, we must do more to prevent elder abuse from occurring in the first place and face it head-on when it occurs.” “From now until 2030, every day, about 10,000 baby boomers will celebrate their 65th birthday. And the fastest-growing population is people 85 years old, or older,” said Kathy Greenlee, HHS assistant secretary for aging and administrator of the Administration for

Community Living. “Stemming the tide of abuse will require individuals, neighbors, communities, and public and private entities to take a hard look at how each of us encounters elder abuse – and commit to combat it.” To support the mission of elder abuse prevention and prosecution, DOJ has developed an interactive, online curriculum to teach legal aid and other civil attorneys to identify and respond to elder abuse. The first three modules of the training cover what lawyers should know about elder abuse; practical and ethical strategies to use when facing challenges in this area, and a primer on domestic violence and sexual assault. This training will expand to include six one-hour modules covering issues relevant to attorneys who may encounter elder abuse victims in the course of their practice.

By Kristin Keckeisen Finally, some muchneeded attention to the long-running grandparent scam. The Senate Special Committee on Aging held a hearing as part of an ongoing series highlighting fraud’s devastating impact on seniors. Among the witnesses: an 81-year-old Ohio resident who lost more than $7,000 to a con artist impersonating his grandson. The grandparent, or “family emergency,” con is simple — and effective. Scammers troll obituaries and social media sites to glean personal information about their target, and rely on getting their victim into a highly emotional state

where they are unable to make rational decisions. Con artists call this state “under the ether,” and it is the bread and butter of any impostor scam. The Federal Trade Commission received reports of more than 127,000 impostor scams last year alone — costing Americans more than $73 million. And yet, this is likely just the tip of the iceberg, since so many victims fail to report the crime out of embarrassment. Stop con artists in their tracks with these tips from AARP fraud expert Sid Kircheimer: • Verify a caller’s real identity by asking ques-

tions that only your grandchild could answer, or provide some misinformation and gauge the response. • Say you will return the call at his or her home or cellphone (but don’t ask the caller for it). If you don’t have the phone number, contact a trusted family member for it. • Never provide your bank or credit card account numbers to any caller — and don’t wire-transfer funds. Scammers often request money sent this way because once you give them a wire-transfer confirmation number, they can collect funds anywhere in the world (no matter where they claim to be).

By M. Brooks Raising children in a smoke-free home isn’t enough to keep them away from cancer-causing toxins. “Third hand” tobacco smoke may be in your home, hiding in plain sight, according a recent study. Researchers behind a York University study published in the journal Environmental International found that carcinogens from tobacco smoke can enter the home from outside (clothing, shoes, etc) and settle on surfaces and in dust, what’s now being called third hand smoke, and the long-term effects are especially dangerous for children between the ages of one and six. “The risks of tobacco exposure do not end when a cigarette is extinguished,” said lead investigator, Dr. Jacqueline Hamilton. Residual pollutants remain on surfaces and in dust and continue to emit toxic gases over time. Researcher Professor Alastair Lewis adds, “Car-

cinogenic materials can be passed from smokers to non-smokers during shared contact, for example between clothes and surfaces and also enter homes via airborne transport of cigarette smoke.” As smoking restrictions in public spaces have become more common, the home has become the primary space for passive smoke inhalation, also known as second hand smoke. A reported 600,000 deaths occur each year worldwide from second hand smoke.

Managing Pain:

The study is the first to reveal the presence of tobacco-related carcinogens in dust found in homes of non-smokers. Dust samples were collected from the homes of smokers and non-smokers and studied for potential cancer risk by applying official toxicology information. Scientists found that the cancers risks for children aged one to six exceeded the limit recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in two thirds of the non-smokers’ homes.

Are You Reading Your Medicine Labels?

Senate Panel Holds Hearing on Scams Aimed at Seniors

(NewsUSA) - You may not be able to spell or even pronounce the word "acetaminophen," but almost 50 million Americans use it each week to manage pain and fever. Acetaminophen is the most common drug ingredient in America, found in more than 600 different prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. While it is safe and effective when used as directed, there is a limit to how much can be taken in one day: 4,000 mg for most adults. Taking more acetaminophen than directed is an overdose and can lead to liver damage. According to the Acetaminophen Awareness Coalition, sometimes people may unintentionally exceed

Cinnamon May Slow Progression of Parkinson’s Disease

Cinnamon may be the latest addition to the list of recognized “brain” foods. The sweet spice contains a chemical that can help protect the brain and new research shows it may even halt the progression of Parkinson’s disease. According to a study recently published in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology, researchers at Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center found that ground cinnamon eaten by mice with Parkinson’s improved their motor functions, stopped the loss of Parkin and DJ-1 and normalized neurotransmitter levels. When eaten, the liver converts cinnamon into the chemical sodium benzoate, an FDA-approved drug for neural disorders. The two most common types of cinnamon sold in the U.S. are Chinese cinnamon (Cinnamon cassia) and Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamonum verum). Both types convert to sodium benzoate, but according to Dr. Kalipada Pahan, the study’s lead researcher, Ceylon is better because it is more pure. The next step is to test the effects of ground cinnamon on humans with PD.

Many of your medicines may contain acetaminophen. Always read and follow your medicine labels. the 4,000 mg daily dose because they don't realize that several medicines they take -- such as pain medications and fever reducers, cough/ cold and allergy medicines, and even some sleep aids -may all contain acetaminophen. In its report, "Acet-

aminophen: How It's Used, Preventing Overdose and What We Can Do to Promote Safe Use," the Coalition points out three common acetaminophen dosing mistakes: • Taking the next dose too soon. • Using multiple acetaminophen-containing medicines at the same time. • Taking more than the recommended dose at a single time. "Educating patients is a key step to promoting safe acetaminophen use and preventing overdose," said nurse practitioner Anne Norman of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, a founding organization of the AAC.

Comcast's Nightmare Customer Service Agent Apple is Making a Mind-Boggling 'Did What We Paid Him to Do,' Says Exec Number of Huge iPhones

By Alexander C. Kaufman Comcast isn’t surprised one of its customer service agents went off the rails in an attempt to hang on to some cable subscribers. A recording of that agent verbally sparring with two customers who wanted to quit Comcast went viral late early last week. Now a top executive at the cable and media giant is offering a tepid defense for what happened: “The agent on this call did a lot of what we trained him and paid him -- and thousands of other retention agents -- to do,” Dave Watson, Comcast Cable’s chief operating officer, said in the email, which the company shared with The Huffington Post. The memo was first posted on Consumerist. Comcast earlier apologized for its agent's behavior and said it was “embarrassed” by the call, which it found “unacceptable and not consistent” with customer service training. In the memo, Watson admitted “it was painful to listen to this call, and I am not surprised we have been criticized for it.” “I know these retention calls are tough, and I have tremendous admiration for our Retention professionals, who make it easy

for customers to choose to stay with Comcast.” The bolded bit, emphasis ours, was apparently written with little self-awareness. The agent, who was not publicly named, spent nearly 20 minutes on the phone with writer Veronica Belmont and her husband Ryan Block, a product manager at AOL, to prevent the couple from disconnecting their service. The aggressive tactics seem to be working. Comcast reported nearly $2 billion in profits in the second quarter, a 15 percent increase from a year ago. The company boasted that it only lost 144,000 video customers -- below the 162,000 in the same period last year -- bringing the total count to 22.5 million. Comcast typically loses a chunk of video subscribers during the second quarter as college students graduate or disconnect for the sum-

mer months, and customers who spend winters in warmer southern states migrate north for the summer. Jennifer Khoury, Comcast’s senior vice president of communications, said improved product offerings drove growth and downplayed the role of retention agents. “It’s so much more than retention, which is a sliver of the business versus all of these things that we think are driving our better customer numbers,” she said. “There’s nothing different about the retention queue today -- the incident that happened with that customer is an isolated incident.” Comcast, considered one of the most hated companies in America, is awaiting a green light from regulators to merge with its chief rival, Time Warner Cable -- a move that many say would be disastrous for customers.

By Krystina Gustafson It's a habit that many shoppers are guilty of. When they want to buy something online for the cheapest price, they head directly to Amazon, not

even bothering to extend their search to other sites. But according to new research from Savings. com, more than 50 percent of the time consumers can find a better price else-

where on the Web, resulting in $47.50 in savings, on average. The study compared prices on 1,500 best-selling Amazon products that cost more than $10 and carried on other retailers' sites. "[People] assume that Amazon has the best price, but it's just not always the case," said Seth Barnes, head of marketing at Savings.com. The results highlight that traditional bricks-andmortar stores are making headway in becoming more competitive on price, though it often comes at the expense of their margins. But smaller mom-andpop shops are also putting pressure on Amazon, particularly when they operate online-only and have lower overhead costs, Savings. com found. They also pose a larger threat when shoppers are looking for a specific item because they don't have to have the lowest prices across the board—just on a particular product. To highlight its findings, Savings.com is launching a new tool, called PriceJump, which compares Amazon’s prices to about 5,000 other retailers on the Web. The company said the tool is designed to make it easier for shoppers to figure out whether the best deal is, in fact, on Amazon. It calls the process “Amazon Rooming”—a play off the industry term “showrooming,” which describes shoppers’ penchant for visiting a store to touch and test a product, but then buying it online it at a lower price. Despite Savings.com’s findings, there’s no doubt that Amazon continues to steal share from its competitors.

Amazon Doesn't Always Offer the Best Deals

Apple Inc has asked suppliers to manufacture between 70 million and 80 million of its two upcoming large-screen iPhones by the end of the year, its largest initial production run of iPhones, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. Its forecast for the iPhones with 4.7-inch (11.9 cm) and 5.5-inch (14-cm) displays is much larger than the initial order last year of between 50 million and 60 million versions of the iPhone 5S and 5C, people told the Journal. Both iPhone 6 screens will be larger than the 4.0inch panels on Apple's existing iPhone 5S and 5C models. The new phone models are also expected to feature metal cases similar to the iPhone 5S and likely come

in multiple colors, these people said. Both iPhone 6 screens are expected to use incell touch panel technology - built into the screen and allowing for thinner construction than with standard touch panel films - that was introduced with the iPhone 5, sources told Reuters in March.

There could be difficulties with in-cell production technology for the larger 5.5-inch size, one of the sources told Reuters then. To factor in the possibility of a higher failure rate for displays, Apple has asked component makers to be prepared to make up to 120 million iPhones, people told the Journal.

By Tyler McCarthy Facebook is giving students access to the Internet. The company recently announced a new pilot program to provide free Wi-Fi access to high school students in Forest City, North Carolina, a Facebook data center site. The company is working with a North Carolina-based nonprofit Internet provider called PANGAEA, Tech Crunch notes. In recent months, Facebook was thought to be losing its appeal among teens, though a recent survey from Forrester Research found that younger people are using the site in greater numbers and with more frequency than other social networks. But Facebook once admitted during an earnings call last year that it was having trouble keeping young teens on the site. Facebook is building off a previous initiative by Rutherford County Schools that provided more than

6,000 of the district's middle and high school students with personal laptops. Administrative officials soon learned that nearly half of those students had no access to Wi-Fi at home, the statement said. As of right now, Facebook says it is providing the service to 75-100 homes in neighborhoods surrounding a school. The company worked with the town to create and establish

Wi-Fi end points that give the entire area coverage. Facebook says it hopes to expand the program if the trial is successful. “This program is still very early in its development,” Facebook’s Keven McCammon wrote in an announcement. “And we all have a lot of work to do to build out this network and ensure that it performs well for the students who need it.”

By Gerry Smith Google said it had created an elite team of researchers to find and report major Internet security flaws, potentially thwarting both Chinese hackers and U.S. intelligence agencies. In a blog post, Google security engineer Chris Evans said the team, dubbed Project Zero, will hunt for bugs in widely used software and report them to vendors so they can be fixed before hackers exploit them for malicious purposes. Evans said sophisticated hackers have used software flaws to spy on human rights activists or steal trade secrets from major companies. Hackers also sell knowledge of such previously unknown bugs to other hackers or foreign governments for thousands of dollars. “You should be able to use the web without fear that a criminal or statesponsored actor is exploiting software bugs to infect

your computer, steal secrets or monitor your communications,” Evans said. “Our objective is to significantly reduce the number of people harmed by targeted attacks,” he added. The mission of Project Zero appears to run counter to the work of the National Security Agency, which has reportedly exploited software bugs as part of its controversial spying programs. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama creat-

ed an exception that allows the NSA to take advantage of security flaws to collect intelligence, but only when there is “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” The New York Times reported. In April, Bloomberg News reported the NSA knew for at least two years about the so-called Heartbleed bug -- a major Internet security flaw disclosed in April -- and exploited it to collect intelligence. U.S. officials denied the report.

Commentary Beyond the Rhetoric:

of the session I rose and walked to the podium and these words flowed: “Regardless of where we live in this world we have one thing in common besides our race. We have been exploited, imprisoned, raped and enslaved by Europe. Whether we were put on a ship and taken across the Atlantic Ocean for a life of slavery or colonized via our land being stolen and new borders drawn that do not make sense and our resources plummeted for over a century. We have been harmed by historical proportions. The future is ours and we must now become united under a banner of economic empowerment. Once we have connected all the dots of the African Diaspora we will unite and present two demands to the United Nations: 1. Recognition of our plight and 2. Be given a formal apology. From there we move forward and become productive because God will bless the one who has his own. We will have our own!” It was received with a standing ovation. Yes, this is where we are going to proceed. The NBCC has been traveling to Cuba, Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Marten, Barbados, Brazil, Suriname, Colombia, Paris, Canary Islands,

Ghana, Botswana, South Africa, Kenya, London, Mexico, Toronto, Tanzania, Barcelona and Equatorial Guinea. Some of these nations and cities we have visited more than a few times. From now on we are going to connect each and every city/nation that has significant numbers of members of the African Diaspora. We will begin to communicate on a regular basis and plan economic projects to employ more and more workers and build more and more wealth via entrepreneurship. These dots of people of African descent will become the envy of the world. Oh, how resilient we have been. Now we will not only survive but begin to thrive. The Chinese and Indians have successfully done this and we can too. There are 1 billion Blacks living on the African continent. South America has 140 million Blacks. The United States has 45 million. There are significant amounts elsewhere such as 5 million in France and nearly 2 million in the United Kingdom. The WORLD, See page 12A

UNCF Stands its Ground in Koch Flap 125 awards for grad students at $10,000 per semester, and 50 awards for Ph.D. students at $25,000 per semester. Additionally, the program will provide mentoring in entrepreneurship, economics, innovation, reading groups and speaker series, an annual summit, and an online community to foster collaboration and learning. The grant will also help pay for administrative costs, research and evaluation, and tracking of students who participated in the program. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the “use” of the funds; it’s the “source” of the funds that some folks find problematic. “They are taking over ‘our’ organization,” is the hue and cry of some. (If it’s “our” organization, why aren’t “we” taking better financial care of it?) “Koch money is funding political causes we don’t agree with.” “The Kochs are evil; they support the Tea Party.” Some say UNCF should return the $25 million, and some have called for a boycott of Koch products in response to its political donations. Wanting to find out more about the Koch’s and their business, I asked a friend of mine, a conscious Black man in the mold of Marcus, Malcolm, and Martin, who

I have been increasingly concerned by the near hysteria in connection with the Central American immigrant children who have attempted to enter the USA, fleeing from poverty, crime and violence. The political Right in the USA is trying to make this the defining moment in their attacks on the Obama administration, playing to the worst and most xenophobic sides of the U.S. public. The Obama administration, true to form, has done a very poor job in responding to this insanity. They have particularly avoided saying something that could change the entire tenor of the debate. It goes something like this. The immigration from Mexico and Central America cannot be understood outside of understanding U.S. foreign policy and, specifically, the relationship of the U.S. towards Mexico and Central America. Continuously, since the 19th century, the USA has interfered in the internal affairs of Latin America and the Caribbean. This has included direct invasions, e.g., the Dominican Republic in 1965; coups, e.g., the 1954 ouster of the Guatemalan President Arbenz; the promotion of insurgencies, e.g., the Contra war against the Sandinista government of Nicaragua; blockades, e.g., Cuba, Haiti (in the 1800s); and colonial-

ism, e.g., Puerto Rico. As a result the entire region has been destabilized for more than a century. Added to that is that there exists a proliferation of U.S.-produced weaponry that has shifted, over time, from political battles to battles among and between various crime families. To all of this, of course, one must add the economic domination of the region by the U.S. This, most notably, includes NAFTA which destroyed Mexican agriculture and resulted in a mass migration of Mexicans to the USA. In order to address immigration, we must come to terms with the role of the United States in Latin American and the Caribbean. We cannot continue to act as if there is no correlation. We cannot continue to act as if the USA can avoid responsibility for the depth of the crises in these regions and simply say no to migration. Yet, this is what most of the Republican Party and many Democrats seem to want to do. None of this is to suggest that the immigration crisis lends itself to easy solutions. What it is to suggest, however, is that people would rather stay in their own countries as opposed to migrating. That means that the U.S. can and should provide the necessary support

to countries that are attempting to stabilize and grow. It should not be promoting or endorsing coups, as it did as recently as 2009 in the case of Honduras, or as it implies in its relationship to the Venezuelan opposition. It needs to be cooperating with the governments of Latin American and the Caribbean on the basis of mutual respect rather than imposing what it sees as solutions, a factor that has contributed to the near civil war situation involving criminal gangs in Mexico. While the U.S. political elite, and much of our population, would rather forget history and ignore the role of the USA in the crimes against the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean, if we want solutions, we need to bite the bullet, so to speak, and come to terms with our own role. There actually is no alternative. Bill Fletcher, Jr. is a racial justice, labor and global justice writer and activist. He is a Senior Scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies.

Haven’t I Seen These People Before?

James Clingman The controversy over the recent donation by the Koch Foundation to the UNCF begs a discussion of politics, education, and business. After receiving a $25 million gift from the Charles Koch Foundation, the UNCF and its president, Michael Lomax, took incoming fire from the AFSME union, which discontinued its funding of UNCF because it disagrees with the Koch’s Republican views Was AFSME’s annual $60,000 donation to UNCF tied in some way to its support of Democrat views? Here are some facts about the issue: $18.5 million will be used to provide scholarships in various areas of study, and $6.5 million will fund HBCUs that have been adversely affected by the Department of Education’s modifications in the Parent PLUS Loan Program. HBCUs lost $155 million because of changes in that government initiative. The Koch Scholars Program will run for seven years. Full-time students with a minimum 3.0 GPA are eligible to apply. Koch representatives have two of the five votes on the scholarship committee. The funds will provide approximatdely 2,800 awards for undergrads at $2,500.00 per semester,

U.S. Foreign Policy Led to Border Crisis

Connecting the Dots throughout the World

The idea hit me during the International Panel at our 22nd Annual Conference in Chicago last week. Speaking on the panel were NBCC members from Colombia, Benin, Ghana, Suriname, Ethiopia and France. Ghana, France and Suriname have participated at previous conferences. It was Colombia’s first and they were given an NBCC board seat (Juan Camilo Cabezas) for their effort in forming a strong and viable chapter headquartered in Cali, Colombia (a city of 2.5 million people and 70% Black). The Ethiopia participation comes by way of the Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry. This association of 35 African countries was recently formed and is headquartered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We look forward to a productive relationship by way of our Memorandum of Understanding which was executed during the conference. A contingent of 5 participants from Benin attended the conference and they have convinced me to visit this West African nation sometime in September. As each representative spoke before the audience, my mind started clicking and the excitement was overcoming. At the end

lives in Wichita, Kansas, where Koch is domiciled. Here is an excerpt from his reply: “From a local perspective, the Koch’s are revered personages. They make generous donations to good causes. They run a tight ship business-wise… They have a very conservative (in the non-political sense) culture, but are not impossible to work for. They hire Blacks, but I am not aware of how many Blacks are promoted inside the company. They pay well and offer good benefits.” In response to my question regarding the UNCF donation, my friend went on to write: “In these days and times, who will step up and write $25 million check to replace what they want the UNCF to refuse? Not our liberals/ left/ progressives or Negro ‘friends.’ They won’t come up with 10% of that.” Koch has given to the UNCF since 2005, the year they acquired Georgia-Pacific. They have also given funds to Spelman College, Albany State, WinstonSalem State, Fayetteville State, and Florida A&M UNCF, See page 11B

For much of this month I was experiencing flashes of déjà vu. It’s come from watching the demonstrators in some towns across the country and reading some of the commentary and reader responses in the newspapers and the blogs protesting the Obama administration’s efforts to temporarily shelter the children fleeing the gang violence ravaging their Central American countries. I’d felt an insistent mental tugging that I’ve seen these people and heard these people and read what these people were saying before. Now I’ve realized I was flashing back to that period from the late 1950s to the mid-1970s – the years encompassing my childhood and young adulthood – when the scene and sound track of American life repeatedly included adults in some cities and towns angrily demanding that children be stopped from “invading” where they lived. Then, of course, the skin color of those children was, by and large, darker—more my shade of brown—than that of the children who’ve fled from elsewhere to America’s southwestern border. And those children, like me, spoke English. And those

children, like me, had been born in the United States, descended from parents and grandparents and, most likely, a long line of ancestors who had been born in the United States. The children I’m remembering from those years, in other words, were American citizens of long lineage. But none of that shielded those children from their adult antagonists. Because those adults considered them, and their parents and all the other Americans who looked like them – who looked like me – to not be American citizens in any sense of that concept. They – we – were “illegal” by dint of skin color and previous condition of servitude. Those adults declared that the children who looked like me had “illegally” crossed boundaries to go where they did not belong, where they were not wanted. And, in fact, in some places, like Little Rock, Ark. and New Orleans, La. and Cambridge, Md. and so on, the children who looked like me were breaking what had been “law.” In other places, like Chicago and Boston and so on, they were challenging long-standing customs and bureaucratic rules which had the force of law. As with the “border

children” of today, the children of yesteryear who looked like me were also called “criminals,” “diseased,” a “pestilence” by mobs of adults at whose fringes lurked men with guns they carried to buck up the courage they needed to harass children. Then, as today, it was the task of the pundits and the politicians who agreed with the children’s adult tormenters to speak of obedience to law and custom, and the need to defend property values, and the “tyranny” of “Washington” in order to simultaneously obscure and justify the spectacle of adults threatening children. Yes, I have seen those adults who’ve been so much in the news this month waging war on children before, because the virus they’re carrying makes all the people infected by it look and sound the same across time and place. But, as I remember happening a half-century ago, some Americans today have also chosen kindness over cruelty, decency over PEOPLE, See page 11B

JEFFERSON From page 1A you don’t see it, then you don’t know it’s a reality,” he said. “Sometimes we have to experience things to know that it’s true. My family gave me enough to get to the door, but I was fortunate to have mentors to help me better understand things.” From that point on, Jefferson pursued a career in education. From Pasadena City College, he wound his way through various positions at El Camino College, Southwest College, Argosy University, and Antioch University. He also received his Masters in education administration from Loyola and his doctorate in educational leadership from UCLA. Last January, he was hired at Ventura College to be the executive vice president in the office of student learning. As a part of his personal activism, Jefferson helped found a community-based organization called A2mend (http://www. a2mend.org). “Our focus is to retain African-American male students and help them go to community colleges,” he explained. Jefferson firmly believes in the importance of community colleges, but he acknowledges that the current system has its share of challenges. “We have a large number of first-generation students,” he noted. “We have a big divide between high performing and low performing students. We have challenges in math and English and institutional challenges as to how to be a community college in the 21st century.” One of his goals for Ventura College is to reestablish relationships within the community. He affirmed that his vision for the college is “to be a community college with a capital C in the community. I want Ventura College to be the center of educational opportunities and activities in our area.” True to what he’s learned over the years at Xavier, within the community college system, and through his work at A2mend, he wants to help every student at Ventura College gain confidence and establish their own lofty expectations. “I’m looking forward to Ventura College being the model community college,” he said. “I think we have the capacity of personnel, the location, and the energy. We just need to refocus on what kind of college we want to be and where we’re going.” KOREA From page 1A United States and US bases in the Pacific. But most experts believe it is still a long way from developing a viable intercontinental ballistic missile with the required range. The North has conducted three nuclear tests, but is not thought to have mastered the miniaturisation techniques necessary for mounting a warhead on a missile. It does possess a range of short-and mid-range missiles capable of striking South Korea and Japan, and has conducted a series of test firings into the Sea of Japan (East Sea) in recent weeks. The latest test on Saturday guided by the leader Kim Jongun - simulated a short-range missile strike on South Korea where 28,500 US troops are stationed, the North’s state media said. It defied censure by the UN Security Council which officially condemned Pyongyang on July 17 over the recent tests as violations of UN resolutions prohibiting the North from using ballistic missile technology. UPSET From page 2A to diseases, strokes, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, allergic reactions, and many more most of these begin with the mind.(I realize there are different cases and I’m not saying that all of these attacks are just in the mind, what I am saying is they all start their) So what happens with the mind has a direct impact and effect to what’s going on in the body. When scientists try to figure out a remedy, or prescription for certain diseases. I’m always amazed how they use laboratory animals, and I know much has been accomplished through this. However, what puzzles me is laboratory animals are two dimensional beings, they have a mind, and a body. What separates us from any other animal in the animal kingdom, is not that we live in houses, go to school, have jobs but the most important thing is that we are made in the image and likeness of Almighty God, and we are spirits. The animals cannot boast that claim. Psychosomatic leaves out a missing ingredient need for our healing. We are not just Psych, which is the mind or Soma, which is the body we are also Pneuma which is a spirit. This is very important because our healing comes from our spirit. The third dimension, that’s connected to Almighty God, It then sends a message to our mind that sends a message to our body. When we disconnect from God our spirit can no longer receive

from God. Therefore, it sends no signals to the mind for victory, healing and peace as a consequence; the mind cannot send those messages to the body. Every human being has a spirit that is hungry and yearning to stay connected to God. This is called holistic healing, because it heals the spirit, soul and body. Inner healing comes first outer healing comes second. Remember, put God first in everything you do live your life and passion, and I’ll see you at the top. Lonnie G.

DESERVE From page 2A depression or anxiety. Chronic anger can create disease and early death. “If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.” ~Ajahn Chah I’d like to remind you that you deserve happiness and joy. You have a right to experience a life filled with the good stuff. Make a decision now to let go of the thoughts that create anger or any negative emotions. You are only hurting yourself. And that’s just not right. You deserve better. LOVE From page 2A If you enjoy children, be around them! The more that you smile and laugh, the more you will attract those who like those things too. Real joy, laughter and peace are things that money cannot buy. Doing what you enjoy is a healthy part of taking good care of yourself. The more that you do it the more you will produce positivity in your life. Inez Lanns was born and raised in Ventura County.

CLIPPERS From page 3A Oval Office, where President Barack Obama called Sterling’s remarks “incredibly offensive racist statements.” With the NBA threatening to seize the team and auction it, Sterling initially gave his wife of 58 years permission to negotiate a sale but then refused to sign the $2 billion Ballmer deal, which would be a record price for an NBA team. He said he would sue the league instead and then revoked the trust, which his lawyers said effectively killed the deal. The nonjury trial held over several weeks focused mainly on whether Shelly Sterling properly removed her husband as a trustee and whether her actions carried any weight after he revoked the trust. Donald Sterling claimed his wife had deceived him about the medical exams. His lawyers argued Monday that Shelly Sterling’s lawyers were in cahoots with the doctors who examined him and that his wife conspired with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to remove him from the trust. “There’s no evidence, I’ll repeat that as loudly as you allow,” attorney Maxwell Blecher said during closing argument, his voice rising. “There’s no evidence that Mr. Sterling was incapable of carrying out his duties as a co-trustee.” Levanas said there was no credible evidence that Sterling was defrauded. Blecher said he was deeply disappointed in the judge’s legal analysis. The ruling Monday was tentative until the judge files it in writing. NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement that the league was pleased and looked forward to the transaction closing as soon as possible. At the conclusion of his lengthy ruling, Levanas envisioned what might happen if Donald Sterling remained the owner. Citing testimony of Clippers interim CEO Richard Parsons, he said the team would go into a “death spiral.” Sponsors would withdraw, players would quit and coach Doc Rivers would leave. “The Clippers would suffer a massive loss of value if the team survived at all,” Levanas said. The judge was adamant that a team owned by Donald Sterling would not draw a price anywhere near the “stunning” $2 billion pledged by Ballmer. Sterling, a lawyer who made a fortune as a landlord, bought the team in 1981 for $12 million. “Ballmer paid an amazing price that can’t be explained by the market,” he said. On the witness stand, Shelly Sterling was more credible than her husband, who was more evasive, gave inconsistent answers and presented wild fluctuations of damage estimates, Levanas said. He noted that the couple presented genuine professions of love for each other despite Donald Sterling’s outburst calling his wife a “pig” after she

testified. Outside of court, his wife said she thought her husband would be happy with the ruling. She said she thinks he will ultimately drop his antitrust suit in federal court against the NBA and the lawsuit he filed in state court against her, Silver and the league. Her lawyer wasn’t so sure. Asked what might stop the deal, Pierce O’Donnell said: “Donald.” “He never met a lawsuit he didn’t like,” he quipped. Bruce Givner, a Los Angeles tax attorney who handles celebrity cases, said he thinks Sterling’s lawsuits will fail and an appeals court won’t care about the probate case. “I think the sale is going to go through,” Givner said. “I suspect the NBA is ready to move very quickly. They want to get rid of Sterling like a canker sore. Nobody wants him around except the people that are charging legal fees to continue this charade.” SCOTT From page 3A track record for success make him the ideal person to lead this franchise forward.” Scott is 416-521 as a head coach for New Jersey, New Orleans and Cleveland, reaching two NBA Finals with the Nets. He has won three division titles, and he was the NBA’s coach of the year in 2008. Scott also was a shooting guard for the Lakers for 11 seasons, playing alongside Magic Johnson during the “Showtime” era. He was a teammate of Lakers star Kobe Bryant during his final NBA season and Bryant has endorsed Scott for his new job. “I am ecstatic to once again be a Laker and to have the opportunity to work alongside Mitch and the Buss family,” Scott said. “I know firsthand what it takes to bring a championship to this city and, as someone who both grew up in L.A. and played the majority of my career here, I know how passionate and dedicated our fans are. “I will give everything I have to fulfil the championship expectations that our supporters have for us and that we have for ourselves.” Scott spent last season as an analyst on the Lakers’ television network, watching their disintegration during a 55-loss season, the most in franchise history. Bryant played just six games last season. The Lakers interviewed several coaching candidates over the past three months, including Lionel Hollins and George Karl. Scott has been widely considered the front-runner for the job since early summer, but Kupchak and Buss appeared to be more focused on the NBA draft and free agency than their current team’s leadership. SCHOOL From page 5A dress code so you don't waste money on inappropriate clothing. • Although shopping online can save money, time and gas, don't forget to factor in shipping and return costs, which could undo any net savings. If your kids are old enough, put them in charge of online comparison shopping and coupon clipping. • Ask which school supplies you're expected to buy. Go in with other families to take advantage of volume discounts and sales. • Find out how much extracurricular activities (athletics, music, art, etc.) cost. Account for uniforms, membership dues, private lessons, field trips, snacks, etc. • Rent or buy used sporting equipment or musical instruments until you're sure they'll stick with an activity. • Know when to spend more for higher quality. Cheaper notebook paper shouldn't matter, but don't buy poorly made shoes that might hamper proper physical development. • Before buying new clothing or accessories, look for "gently used" items in the closets of your older kids and friends, at garage sales, thrift and consignment stores and online. • Clip newspaper and online coupons. Many stores will match competitors' prices even if their own items aren't on sale. Plus, many consolidation websites post downloadable coupons and sale codes for online retailers, including: CouponCabin.com, CouponCode.com, CouponCraze.com, DealHunting.com and Dealnews.com. • Mobile shopping apps let in-store smartphone and mobile browser users scan product barcodes and make on-the-spot price comparisons, read reviews, download coupons, buy products and more. • Follow your favorite retailers on Facebook and Twitter, where many post special savings for their followers. Bottom line: If you get organized before setting out on back-to-school shopping, you can save money, time and aggravation. Jason Alderman directs Visa's financial education programs.

WATERS From page 6A fund the Securities and Exchange Commission, one of Wall Street’s top cops, at the President’s request of $1.7 billion, and at no cost to the taxpayer. The underlying bill undermines the SEC by cutting nearly $300 million or nearly 20 percent from the requested level. The Waters amendment will be voted on in the coming days. An amendment to provide the SEC with the authority to impose and collect reasonable user fees on federally registered investment advisers to increase the number and frequency of SEC examinations. This provision is consistent with legislation coauthored by Waters and Rep. John Delaney (D-MD), H.R. 1627, the Investment Adviser Examination Improvement Act. Last week, Waters called on House Financial Services Committee Chairman Hensarling to hold a hearing on this and other legislative proposals that would increase these reviews. Republicans also objected to this amendment, ruling it out of order on an appropriations measure. FISHER From page 6A -“We’re meeting this Tuesday at 7 o’clock. Oh! You’ve got to definitely come. There’s solidarity with this Trayvon Martin bitch, and I’m trying to get on news so I’m wearing the hoodies at the whole board meeting… It’s the perfect publicity stunt. I’m going to wear a hoodie, the news is going to come out, and I’m going to announce my candidacy for City Council, goddammit.” -“If I saw myself walking down the street with a hoodie on, I’d shoot myself too!” Fisher later issued an apology and took a leave of absence to address what he called “a range of personal and healthrelated issues,” posted on the Compton Unified School District’s website. In a statement released through his spokeswoman, Skyy D. Fisher said inaccurate information has been disseminated in an effort to force him from the school board. He vowed to fight the allegations while continuing to serve the students and parents of Compton. “Mr. Fisher expects to be fully exonerated and vindicated in this matter,” Jasmyne Cannick, his spokeswoman, said in the statement. TAX From page 6A disaster or other calamity. The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) prescribes property tax rules and instructs local agencies on how to handle property tax appeals, and seeks to make the process easy for taxpayers to navigate. A series of videos explaining the process of appealing a property tax assessment is available on the BOE’s website at www.boe. ca.gov/info/AssessmentVideo/ AppealAssessmentIndex.html. Many California taxpayers know that property tax increases are limited by law, but tax bills can vary greatly under certain circumstances. Proposition 13 (1978) limits annual property tax increases to 2 percent. However, many homeowners sought temporary reductions of their tax bills – a process allowed by Proposition 8 (1978) – when housing values plummeted during the housing crash. The values of many properties in California were temporarily reduced by percentages much larger than 2 percent. The 2 percent limitation under Proposition 13 does not apply to values under Proposition 8. Taxpayers who wish to ap-

peal the assessed value of their properties can do so by filing an Application for Changed Assessment, form BOE-305-AH, with their county clerk of the board. Contact information for all 58 county assessors can be found on the BOE’s website at www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/assessors.htm. NYPD From page 7A more affectionately the “Bear” by his wife. None of these appellations were effective in stopping the officers who sought to detain him in front of a hardware store in Staten Island. It didn’t matter to the officers who surrounded him that he was the father of six children and was known as the “Gentle Giant.” Or, the fact that he repeatedly told them: “I can’t breathe.” Once Garner, who was asthmatic, was no longer moving the cops took a step back and one of them stooped over Garner as if to see if he was still alive. He wasn’t. The entire video can be seen on YouTube courtesy of liveleak. VOTER From page 7A Democrats, including black voters, are far less enthusiastic about the coming midterm elections than Republicans, who could win control of the U.S. Senate. President Obama has said that Democrats have to learn to mobilize voters in nonpresidential elections. One way blacks have been motivated is by warnings of Republican attempts to limit their ability to vote. Republicans say they are only trying to stamp out voter fraud, but Democrats have highlighted the efforts to mobilize black voters. BLACK From page 7A support the institution financially. Entertaining a consumer nation Though not monolithic, Black people have been described as a “consumer nation” in terms of spending habits, and in some ways, this appears to be paying off, but not in a way that benefits the masses. The 43 million plus Black people in America have a current buying power of $1 trillion forecast by economic analysts to reach $1.3 trillion by 2017. Of that amount, $3.1 billion is spent on leisure and entertainment. The most recent Nielsen report on America’s television habits found Blacks watch significantly more television than any other group, making them excellent targets for advertisers. Likewise, there is no denying that many Blacks are among the most visible and highly compensated in American society, especially in the area of entertainment. In fact, a quick glance at Forbes’ 15th Annual Celebrity 100, which uses power, influence, and earnings to determine rankings, reveals seven of the top ten on the list are Black. Topped by glamorous entertainer Beyoncé with estimated earnings of $115 million in 2014, superstar athlete LeBron James followed and in the 3rd position was producer Dr. Dre. Rumored to become hip hop’s first billionaire, Dr. Dre’s $620 million is the most earned in a 12-month period than any other person in the history of the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. Oprah Winfrey lands in 4th place with Beyoncé’s husband JayZ 6th, boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather 7th and Barbadian recording artist Rhianna in the 8th position. Are these individuals moving towards establishing generational wealth, are they simply highly compensated employees, or are they successful entrepreneurs capitalizing on their skills talents and opportunities? “They are what we call high growth entrepreneurs,” said Ms. Alleyne. In her view, these individuals are moving toward creating legacies by leveraging their resources. Mr. Muhammad used the term “intrapreneurs” to describe those like Beyoncé, JayZ, and Oprah Winfrey seeing them as both highly-paid employees and highly successful entrepreneurs, depending on their contracts, where they are on the “economic power pyramid” and their contracts. “In some ways it may be more accurate to say that Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Oprah are intrapreneurs because they sell ownership of what they create. An intrapreneur effectively perceives and conceives of an opportunity but does not build or own the institution which ultimately finances it or brings it to reality or the point of sale to a consumer,” said Cedric Muhammad. “The long-term money is not in the quick and one-time sale of a creative product like an album, TV show or movie. The larger income streams which come down through the generations, can be found in owning the rights to continuously distribute, use and sell that creative work. What is encouraging about JayZ and Oprah is that over time they have negotiated stronger deals which allow them to share in this kind of economic power.

As they grow in power and skillfully utilize technology, they will function more like entrepreneurs than employees,” said Mr. Muhammad. HOME From page 8A leading age of the largest generation ever - 81 million Echo Boomers -- is now over 30, the numbers should be closer to the 2.3% annual growth of the 1970’s, when 78 million Baby Boomers reached adulthood. The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) said about 2.1 million households delayed formation due to the recession which allegedly ended in 2011. Now there’s pent-up demand for housing that should continue to drive home prices higher.

WORLD From page 11A city of Guangzhou, China has over 300,000 Blacks. It would be safe to say that there are 1 billion on the African continent and nearly 300 million throughout the rest of the world. Wherever there have been Black American soldiers, Black babies were born. Vietnam, Germany, Korea, Philippines, Italy and other 20th century military venues hold descendants of these soldiers. They are there waiting to communicate with the rest of us. Thus, we have 1 billion in Africa and about 300 million spread out throughout the rest of the world. Let’s connect the dots. Technology allows us to do this now. I am going to put a couple of my staffers to work on this. Searching via the internet, they will make contact and build a gigantic database. We will sort their interests industry and commerce. Kay and I started a local Black chamber in Indiana. Then we started a national Black chamber in DC. Perhaps it is now time to start a global Black chamber. It will have to be virtual and a periodical publication produced that will inform us of opportunity and good case studies and models. It reminds me of the saying, “If not you then who; if not now then when? Through this we can build power through communication. With that power we build wealth which will be the best instrument to end poverty, disease and violence. We have a wonderful God and He has tested us through these last 500 years. He will be pleased once we complete this noble mission. Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce ®.

Guess Who Was Chosen to Sing the Universal Pictures Speaks Out Songs for Whitney's Biopic Against Offensive Casting Call

By Jessica Dickerson As plans for the Whitney Houston biopic continue to develop, fans have already gotten exciting updates about what the film will have to offer. And now, there's even more! On the heels of a photo released last week that gave a first look at Yaya DaCosta done up as the late-singer, comes news that singer Deborah Cox is set to lay down the vocals. The film, which will focus on the renowned singer's relationship with her ex-husband Bobby Brown, will be directed by Angela Bassett and is set to pre-

By Emily Tess Katz Keke Palmer made waves when she secured her own BET talk show, "Just Keke," but her choice to host Chris Brown's current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, possibly generated even more media attention as it forced her to confront some turmoil from disgruntled Rihanna fans. Still, 20-yearold Palmer -- who's a friend of the "Rude Boy" singer -maintains she doesn't regret her choice. "I want to give my generation everything they're asking for," she told host HuffPost Live's Nancy Redd in an interview. "I feel like this was a specific thing that a lot of people were curious about. They were curious to hear what Karrueche had to say." "You kinda know how Rihanna feels 'cause she kinda tweets here and there," Palmer continued. "You kinda know how Chris Brown feels, 'cause he'll just tell you -- he'll put a video to it! -- but Karrueche has never spo-

Keke Palmer ken out, and so I was really glad she trusted us at 'Just Keke' to kinda give us the word on how she feels." Brown's relationship with Tran comes on the heels of a very public relationship with Rihanna, which continued off-and-on even as he was found guilty of assaulting her. Rihanna's loyal fan base is known for its hostility towards Brown, which has extended to his current girlfriend. Fans were predictably unhappy that Tran was being offered

a forum to speak. "[There was] lots of drama about me having her on," Palmer recalled. "Because people know I'm a huge Rihanna fan and so their initial thing is, 'Why would you have Karrueche on if you're a huge Rihanna fan?' And the thing is, it's not about me ... it's about me keeping a promise to you guys, which is to always give you the real ... this was news to my generation and I wanted to make sure I gave it to them." Coincidentally, Rihanna is the guest whom Palmer said she'd most like to have on her show. And no, she doesn't think her interview with Tran, which aired July 16, will hurt chances of scoring a sit-down session with the pop star. "Rihanna's not a petty person like that," she explained. "This [love triangle] has nothing to do with me, so I can't imagine she would feel a way about [the interview] -- that's just not her character."

Kerry Washington Unless the show decides to change the Constitution of the United States and let Fitz remain as POTUS past another four years, an early ending, at least when it comes to that part of the series, seems likely. But Rhimes also revealed the decision on when to pull the plug doesn't hinge on Fitz completing his time as president. Although fans would no doubt love to see Olivia and her married man finally get their happily-everafter complete with that house in Vermont, Rhimes says that while it would be interesting to continue following the couple once the politicking ends, she's

already set boundaries for the show's time-frame and she intends on sticking to them. "I've given myself a parameter of what that is," Rhimes said when asked if the end of Fitz's time in office meant the end of the series. "Whether or not that means we end up deciding to stretch or shrink his presidency based on that remains to be seen." What fans can expect to see when Season 4 returns this fall is more Kerry Washington and more drama. Rhimes admitted Washington's pregnancy meant less screen time for the actress and was the reason Season 3 seemed jampacked with multiple characters and storylines. When the newest season debuts, the spotlight will once again be on the remaining core cast members. "As we're telling stories, the stories really do seem to be more focused on our core people," Rhimes said. "We're very excited to get back to Olivia-centric storytelling." Season 4 of "Scandal" premieres Thursday, Sept. 25, at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC.

Keke Palmer's Interview with Chris Brown's Girlfriend Upset Rihanna Fans

Shonda Rhimes Says 'Scandal' Won't Make It Past Season Eight

By Jessica Toomer Ready yourselves, gladiators, this isn't good news. Shonda Rhimes, the mastermind behind shows like "Scandal" and "Grey's Anatomy," just revealed a bit of her endgame when it comes to Olivia Pope & Associates and it doesn't go past Season 8. The showrunner spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about plans for the upcoming season of the show and admitted she doesn't see too many years left for Olivia, Fitz and the rest of the crew. "I think there's only so much 'Scandal' you can tell satisfactorily," Rhimes said. "The Fitz-Liv thing can only be told so long and in such a way. It's not a 10-season or eight-season show. I've already decided how long that is and what that's going to be." Honestly, it's not too surprising that Rhimes has already forged the ending for her political drama. Last season's final episode saw Olivia flying off into the sunset with Jake, Harrison meeting his end at the hands of daddy Pope and Fitz being re-elected for a second term in office.

Zendaya Explains Why She Exited Lifetime's Aaliyah Biopic

By Jessica Goodman Lifetime cast a new lead in its Aaliyah biopic after Zendaya Coleman backed out of the role last month without comment. Nickelodeon actress Alexandra Shipp will now take her place, but Coleman took to Instagram to explain why she exited the made-for-TV movie. In three separate videos she said she didn't leave because of the haters like many fans thought. "The main reason is that the pro-

The New Captain America is Black

There's a new Captain America coming to town. Sam Wilson, Captain America's longtime partner The Falcon, will be replacing Steve Rogers this fall in the comic book series, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada revealed on Comedy Central’s "The Colbert Report" Wednesday night. "Well if there is one bird associated with America, it is the falcon," Colbert remarked. Wilson will officially take on the cowl and shield in "All-New Captain America #1" by Rick Remender and Stuart Immonen. Colbert addressed the fact that Wilson is black, to which Quesada said, "I don't see colors." According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wilson is the second former sidekick to take on the Captain America identity in the past decade, and will be the seventh character to use the name in Marvel continuity. “I’ve been having a lot of fun writing Sam," Remender said in a Marvel. com interview. "It’s a completely different attitude. The fact that he’s not a soldier shifts things up a bit. Sam’s not going to be Steve. Steve can be very rigid. That can be kind of joyless at times, whereas Sam is absolutely not that.” While there have been other replacements for Rogers, Wilson will be the first person of color to appear as the title lead in the comic.

Zendaya Coleman duction value wasn't there, there were complications with the music rights, and I just felt like it wasn't

being handled delicately considering the situation," she said. Aaliyah died in a plane crash at age 22 in 2001 and her family has been outspoken about fighting the film. Zendaya addressed their concerns and said, "I tried my best to reach out to the family on my own, and I wrote a letter, but I was unable to do so; therefore, I felt not really morally OK with moving forward with the project." She wished Shipp well in the new role and asked fans to drop the drama. "Let's practice motivation and love; not discrimination and hate. All right?"

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

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

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

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.

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 POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 848-9272 or visit this Internet Web site www.elitepostandpub. com, using the file number assigned to this case 13-25931. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

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.

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 or visit the Internet Web site, using the file number assigned

to this case 13-520424. 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.

A Petition for Probate has been filed by GERARD SALVADOR C. RODOLFO in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that GERARD

SALVADOR C. RODOLFO be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: AUG 20, 2014 at Time: 9:00AM in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Courthouse. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: /S/Mary P. Kulvinskas (CSB #201469) LAW OFFICES OF MARY P.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 830 OLIVER STREET, FILLMORE, CA 93015 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in

said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $659,467.65 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

No.: 20040406-0088796, WILL SELL on 8/21/2014, 11:00 A.M. at the main front entrance to the County Government Center Hall of Justice, 800 S. Victoria Ave., Ventura, CA at public auction to the highest bidder for lawful money of the United States payable at the time of sale, all right, title and interest in the property situated in said county as more fully described in the above-referenced Lien. The purported owner(s) of said property is (are): Jose Martin and Jisela Martin, husband and wife as community property. The property address and other common designation, if any, of the real property is purported to be: 3708 Red Hawk Court, Simi Valley, CA 93063, APN 6140-170-095. The undersigned trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Sale is: $19,285.28. The opening bid at the foreclosure sale may be more or less than this estimate. In addition to cash, the trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn on a state or federal credit union or a check drawn on state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or the endorsee as a matter of right. Said sale shall be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Lien, advances thereunder, with interest as provided in the Declaration plus the fees, charges and expenses of the trustee. THIS PROPERTY IS BEING SOLD IN AN “AS-IS” CONDITION. This communication is from a debt collector. Witkin & Neal, Inc. is attempting to collect a debt and any information obtained will be used for that purpose. If you have previously received a discharge in bankruptcy, you may have been released from personal liability for this debt in which case this notice is intended to exercise the secured party’s rights against the real property only. 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 AND ALL OTHER INTERESTED PARTIES: 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.

Turf Replacement Rebate Program

Did you know that one of the main water uses in homes is landscape? In fact, during the summer months over half of all household water use is applied to lawns and gardens. That is why Oxnard residents are replacing their thirsty turf with beautiful water-wise gardens, saving thousands of gallons of water each year. You too can transform your yard into a beautiful, easy-care garden and help conserve our precious water supply. As a City of Oxnard water customer, residents are eligible for a rebate of $3.00 per square foot of turf removed. This rebate, increased from $1/Ft2 to $3/Ft2, is being offered as a result of the severe drought declared by Governor Brown early this year. Water-wise gardens lower your water bill. They are beautiful and productive. Additionally, water-wise gardens require fewer fertilizers and pesticides, making them a healthy choice for your family and the planet. Featuring native or climate appropriate low water-use plants, they only require drip irrigation. These water and planet-friendly gardens require much less water than lawns or tropical climate plant gardens. Water-wise gardens provide a wide array of choices and are not limited to cactus gardens. Many Mediterranean plants feature colorful flowers and interesting foliage. An added benefit to having a garden that features native plants is that they attract local wildlife and insects beneficial to the environment. To learn more and to apply for a rebate go to www.bewaterwise.com or call (805) 385-8136. Rebates are subject to available funds and are subject to change without notice.

universities. Where’s the call for those funds to be returned. Another Republican funder, Las Vegas casino owner, Sheldon Adelson, contributed $100 million to candidates that Black people do not support. According to Forbes, in one year Adelson earned $32 million per day! I am sure a lot of Black dollars were included in that haul. I have not heard a call for a boycott of his casinos. Dr. Dre, who made much of his money from Black folks, gave $35 million to USC. Is there a call to boycott his headphones because he didn’t give that money to an HBCU? Can you see the misguided nature of this UNCF argument? Although they do work together, we must be intellectually capable of separating politics from business. George Leef, contributing writer to Forbes Magazine, says, “Money is fungible. Any dollar has exactly the same worth as any other dollar. Money is also sterile – it does not magically transmit whatever real or imaginary evil the person who earned it may have done to the next person who takes the dollar in trade or as a gift.” University of Pennsylvania professor Marybeth Gasman argues that UNCF should reject the money because it is “tainted” with the Koch brothers’ political advocacy and work to undermine the interests of African Americans, namely, federal programs that built the Black middle class. I say, if federal programs “built” the Black middle class, they can also destroy it. Kudos to Michael Lomax for “standing his ground” in support of HBCUs. I trust he will not allow the political influence of any donor group to alter his commitment to maintain the integrity of the UNCF and to help Black students attend college. Jim Clingman, founder of the Greater Cincinnati African American Chamber of Commerce, is the nation’s most prolific writer on economic empowerment for Black people. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati and can be reached through his Web site, blackonomics.com.

indecency. Undoubtedly, they’re the ones who understand that the mid-20th century “invasion” into the rest of America of the children who looked like me and the boundary crossing of the children who came behind them redeemed the American Dream and saved American society by illuminating a fundamental human truth: When you open wider the gates of opportunity, the benefits to all stretch far beyond imagining.

PAGEANT, From page 14A

crowned tonight. The entire Tri County community and beyond is anxious to see who the first queen size models. Their stature, posture and presence commanded respect and admiration. Women arrived dressed so beautifully that many could have walked the stage as contestants. In a word, they were fine, beautiful and dressed to impress. The men, somber, sharp, and as cool as cucumbers escorted them with confidence and pride. Suddenly, as if things could not get any better, A-list celebrity Megan Good arrived. Megan is as beautiful in person as she is on screen. One could not help but adore her. Her husband was as handsome as she was beautiful. Actor Lahmard Tate another A-list actor arrived with his brother. Many of the women almost lost their cool, but nobody passed out. For the last several months, Miss Plus contestants have been groomed, coached and attended workshops on how to be confident speakers by Ms. Satterwhite, a member of Toastmasters International. Their pageant coach Sabrina Hayes, the winner of several beauty pageants, must have had an easy job with these young women. Their poise and elegance seemed like something they were born with. The pageant commenced with Ms. Jai Nix speaking on the virtues of confidence, class, and creativity. The contestants were then introduced to the guest. They did an opening group dance that was fun and energetic. The judges for the event were introduced. Megan Good, Belle Broomfield, Cedric Hanna and Jennifer Chapman had ringside seats. The pageant hopefuls were judged on creative fashion, talent, and evening gown competition. During the interview segment the contestants had to demonstrate an in depth understanding about the challenges and misconceptions of autism. The event helped everyone understand more about autism by shining a spotlight on misconceptions. During intermission for vote tabulation, Q104.7’s Miss Alynette, a rising star and media personality kept the audience hypnotized with her wit, intelligence, and stunning beauty. Comedian Jay Mac had the entire audience laughing so hard we almost busted a gut. Watch out D. L. Hughley and Kevin Hart because Jay Mac is on the way. He randomly selected audience members to have fun by having them sing and dance. Finally, the auditor Hubert Wells and assistant auditors Derrick Wilson and Monica Negron returned with the vote. Miss Plus 805 has a new Queen for its first annual pageant, Kiesha Nicole Cotton. All the guest went to their feet. There were tears, cheers and applause as Queen Kiesha Nicole Cotton accepted her crown, gifts and flowers from Plus 805 Pageant founders and directors Doris Wells and Rhonnie Harris. They have worked tirelessly so that the world will benefit from the training that the pageant contestants received. Rhonnie and Doris also put us on notice that a young girl’s pageant is in the planning stage and we will hear more about it soon.
