FRESNO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today announced the arrest of five individuals who allegedly ran a statewide housing scheme by using adverse possession laws to fraudulently seize at least 23 homes in nine counties. “It is reprehensible that these individuals lied to the courts in order to steal homes and in some cases to demand payment from the rightful owners,” Attorney General Harris said. “The conduct of the attorneys in this scheme is even more offensive because they violated their ethical duty to be honest to the courts. I am pleased that my mortgage fraud strike force, together with our state and local partners, continue to investigate and prosecute these crimes against our people and our economy."

Around the Tri-Counties 7 of the hardest people to lead Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan I want to help you understand why so many people feel stuck and struggling... Many of us are stuck in what is called, the funnel of limitation. When we live in the bottom of the funnel of limitation we believe that what we see is real and we become trapped by an awareness of lack and struggle. Because we are surrounded by many other people who are also trapped in the bottom of the funnel, our beliefs and the beliefs we are surrounded with are also limited... It is within the bottom of the funnel that we believe in chance, fate and circumstances beyond our control. It becomes difficult to believe in the possibility of freedom. And when all you can see from your limited vision is restriction and limitation, you live in a state of survival and that’s when you get stuck.

Now, here is the good news, you can move to the top of the funnel - which is open and expansive and filled with life. The key to staying at the top of the funnel is to permanently change the way you live from first dimension living to third dimension living. You can do this consciously and deliberately. You can take back your power. You can free yourself from the limitations of the ‘tribal belief system’, and significantly remove your limitations! It all begins with awareness. Start by becoming conscious of who you are listening to. Are you listening to people who are living at the bottom of the funnel? If you live from a God in side consciousness you will begin to shift immediately. Also the people who are around you and those you have to lead or work with. Some people flow good with you others stop your flow the goal should be to lead those around you to victory, but sometimes they make it hard so be wise how you lead people. Here are 7 of the hardest people to lead: Know it all – It’s difficult to lead someone who won’t listen, because they don’t think they have a need for what you have to say. They think they know more than you…and evPaid Advertisement

eryone else. They may or may not, but it makes them very hard to lead. Gifted leaders - Don’t misunderstand this one. I don’t mean they try to be difficult. They just bring higher expectations for those who try to lead them. I have had some very successful leaders in my churches. I love having them … but they keep me on my toes! (And, that’s a good thing.) Hyper-critical – When someone is always negative it becomes difficult to lead them, mostly because they zap the motivation from you to do so. They never have anything positive to add to the team, the glass is always have empty, and the sky is always about to fall. Very draining. Wounded – Wounded people are more resistant to being led to something new until they heal. I’ve had members who came to our church injured. I knew before I could effectively lead them I had to help them heal from their past. Insecure – Those who lack self-confidence are harder to lead, because they are hesitant to take a risk. The best leadership involves delegation. It’s people who assume responsibility for a task. Insecure people will usually only move when they are PEOPLE, See page 12A

The People’s Throb In Your Opinion, Do Americans Care what Race, Color, or Nationality Other People Marry?

By Gary L. Harbour

Brittney Jo, 19 Oxnard, CA

Sarah Rushton, 20 Oxnard, CA

Dashawn Lee, 22 Oxnard, CA

Emmanuel Ferreira, 22 Oxnard, CA

Julie Bally, 31 Ventura, CA

Debra Harbour, 50+ Port Hueneme, CA

“I believe some Americans do care about nationality when it comes to marriage because of the way things used to be and negative stereo types. In my personal opinion, I don’t think it should matter. The race, color or nationality, and that we should take the time to get to know others, instead of judging a book by its cover.”

“There will always be Americans who will care about what other people are doing, and who they marry and why. However, in my opinion we are all here together. Americans should do what makes them happy, regardless of their color, nationality, or race.”

“Most people do not care what race, color, or nationality others marry. I have accepted interracial marriage as part of society, but there are a handful of people who have not accepted that and may ever look down their noses at interracial marriages.”

“No, I believe people don’t care about what race, color, or nationality other people marry because we are already so mixed in culture, race, color, and nationality that it doesn’t matter.”

“Unfortunately, some people do care what race, color, or nationality that other people marry.”

“In the past interracial marriage was more of a social stigma, especially in most Southern states and in some Northern states. Considering the fact that with each generation diversity in relationships has become more accepted, I think that the majority of Americans are unconcerned with the race, color or nationality as it pertains to marriage”

Why Legalized Weed Is Good News Tips for Californians to Prevent for Young Black Men

Consumer Alert:

Tax-Related Identity Theft

SAN FRANCISCO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today kicked off Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week by issuing tips for Californians to follow to prevent tax-related identity theft as the annual tax compiling and filing process begins. Tax-related identity theft increases in January and commonly occurs when: • Thieves use stolen personal information to file tax returns in someone else’s name in order to obtain a refund. • Thieves use a stolen Social Security number (SSN) for employment, which may complicate state and federal income tax ob-

ligations for the victim. • Thieves send phishing emails that look like they are from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) that ask for personal information or include links to official-looking web sites. California consumers are urged to use the following tips to better prevent tax-related identity theft: • Never open an email or a text message that says it is from the IRS or the FTB - they are always fraudulent. State and federal tax agencies never initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text message or social media to request personal or financial infor-

mation or to send notice regarding audits or refunds. • It’s fine to show your Social Security card to your employer when you start a job or to your financial institution for tax reporting purposes. Do not routinely carry your card or other documents that display your SSN. • While preparing your tax return for electronic filing, make sure to use a strong password. A strong password is at least eight characters and includes a combination of at least three upper and/or lowercase letters, punctuation, symbols and numerals. • Once you have e-filed your return, save it to a flash ALERT, See page 12A

Free Tax Preparation and Electronic Filing Offered to Low and Moderate Income Earners

Camarillo, CA — Low to moderate income workers with a household income of $52,000 or less in 2013 can receive free tax preparation and income tax filing at a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site located throughout Ventura County. Tax returns are filed electronically by IRStrained volunteers. The Ventura County Financial Empowerment Partnership

aims to increase the number of individuals and families who receive no-cost tax preparation assistance and who access the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program — the nation’s largest and most powerful federal aid program for the working poor. “The EITC can boost a family’s income, but the rules are somewhat complicated and so not every-

one who applies for it will receive it,” said Susan Englund, United Way’s Vice President of Community Impact. Beginning February 1, 2014 through April 12, 2014, trained volunteer tax preparers will prepare federal and state tax returns at sites located at El Concilio in Oxnard, Housing Authorities of Ventura and TAX, See page 12A

Sports News Jamaican Bobsled Team Races Kobe Bryant Doesn't Want Your to Make It to Sochi Olympics All-Star Votes

By Emily Thomas There may be a "Cool Runnings" sequel if the Jamaican bobsled team (or bobsleigh, as it's also known) succeeds in reaching the Sochi Olympics in just a few weeks. It’s been 26 years since the first Jamaican bobsled team went for gold at the Calgary Games in Canada -- an underdog story that inspired the movie. After failing to qualify in 2006 and falling short of funds in 2010, the Jamaicans are ready for a comeback. And veteran bobsledder Winston Watts may be just the guy to make it happen. In pursuit of another Olympics berth for his old team, Watts emerged from retirement in 2010 to become the new captain, according to Evanston, Wyo.'s Uinta County Herald. Watts, who at 47 would be one of the oldest Olympic bobsledders, previously competed in the 1994, 1998 and 2002 Olympics. In 2002, he and teammate Lascelles Brown recorded an Olympic record for the fastest push-start time in the two-man bobsled, with a time of 4.78 seconds. But before he re-entered the sport, Watts was working in the oil fields of Wyoming. “When you give up

Powerful Texas booster Red McCombs is not happy. After all, McCombs made a push for Texas to hire Jon Gruden. So when the Longhorns hired Charlie Strong from Louisville, he was not impressed.

That’s not to say McCombs doesn’t believe Strong could fit in at Texas — just not as head coach. “I don’t have any doubt that Charlie is a fine coach,” McCombs said on The Blitz with Dat Nguyen

Texas Booster Not Impressed with Charlie Strong

I don’t think it adds up.” Strong responded to McCombs’ remarks on the Dan Patrick Show. “There are going to be statements made. You can’t worry about that. You just move on. You have a job to do. You can’t worry about what people say or think. I’m going to be judged by my work here,” Strong said. Strong was hired to replace Mack Brown, who stepped down after the Longhorns were beaten in the Alamo Bowl by Oregon, 30-7. Brown was 158-48 from 1998 to 2013 at Texas, but just 30-21 and 18-17 in the Big Ten since the Longhorns lost the 2009 BCS title game to Alabama. Strong was 37-15 in four seasons at Louisville, including 12-1 this season and 11-2 in 2012.

By Greg Beacham LOS ANGELES — While Kobe Bryant heals from his latest injury, he has an unusual message for the fans who select the NBA All-Star game's starters: Don't vote for me. After playing just six games in an injury-plagued season, the Los Angeles Lakers' 15-time All-Star guard is hoping fans elect younger, more deserving players to start next month's showcase in New Orleans. "Even though there's so much respect that comes from me to be able to play for the fans, I'd much rather see the young guys go out there and play in the game," Bryant said before the Lakers faced Denver. "They've obviously put the work in to be there that weekend, so I'd much rather see them go in there and

Kobe Bryant participate." Bryant also gave a small update on his recovery from a broken bone near his left knee. He is riding a stationary bike to stay in shape while the bone heals, but must exercise patience with several weeks likely to go. "I'm pretty restricted in terms of what I can do,"

Bryant said. "So I'm just staying on the bike, keeping it moving and going, keeping the legs strong." Few players have more experience in the NBA's midseason exhibition showcase than Bryant, who has been chosen for every All-Star game since missing out as a rookie in 1997. Bryant is a four-time All-Star game MVP and the top scorer in the game's history, passing Michael Jordan in 2012. Although Bryant won't mind at all if fans pass on him this time, that doesn't look likely so far: Bryant was the second-leading vote-getter in the Western Conference in vote totals released by the NBA on Dec. 26 with 723,031 votes, trailing only LeBron James and Kevin Durant in the overall balloting.

Mother of Former NFL Players Sue Team for Wrongful Death

By Dave Skretta KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The mother of former Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher filed a wrongfuldeath lawsuit against the team after exhuming his body so that his brain could be examined for evidence of a degenerative condition linked to repeated concussions. The lawsuit, filed by Cheryl Shepherd in Jackson County (Mo.) circuit court, alleges Belcher was subjected to "repetitive head trauma," and that the Chiefs failed to provide adequate medical care before Belcher killed his girlfriend and then committed suicide last December. Shepherd is seeking a jury trial and judgment "in excess of $15,000 for actual damages, punitive damages, and/or aggravating circumstances, for the cost of this action, and for such relief as the court deems fair and reasonable." Belcher's body was exhumed at a cemetery in Bay Shore, N.Y., at his

Jovan Belcher family's request so that his brain could be studied for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative neurological condition. CTE has been linked to multiple concussions and includes symptoms such as memory problems, behavioral changes and eventually dementia. CTE has made headlines in recent years with the deaths of some former professional athletes, including former Chargers linebacker Junior Seau and

former Bears safety Dave Duerson. Shepherd's lawsuit claims the Chiefs failed to warn her son of the shortterm and long-term risks of concussions; failed to identify and remove Belcher from practice or games after sustaining head trauma; failed to educate Belcher about concussions; failed to monitor or treat Belcher for neurological dysfunction; and failed to provide appropriate counseling. According to the lawsuit, Belcher was knocked unconscious during a game against Jacksonville in 2009 but did not receive adequate treatment before returning to team activities. On Dec. 1, 2012, Belcher shot to death his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, while Shepherd was caring for his infant daughter in a nearby room. Belcher then sped from the residence to the Chiefs training facility, where he shot himself in the head in the parking lot.

Evander Holyfield Sparks Outrage with Shocking Comment

Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield said he does not think being gay is normal and compared it to a handicap that can be fixed. Holyfield made the antigay comments in the "UK Celebrity Big Brother" house while speaking to reality star Luisa Zissman about gay boxers. When Zissman -- who was seemingly unaware of the fact Orlando Cruz came out in 2012 -- said it would be good for a gay boxer to be public about his sexuality, Holyfield was taken aback. "What would be good about it?" he asked. "That ain't normal." After saying that the Bible spells out what's wrong and what's right, Holyfield compared being gay to having a handicap that could be fixed. "Only thing I'm trying to tell you... You know how handicapped people are

Evander Holyfield born? You can't say 'cause they were born that way you can't move that," he said. Adding, "It is a choice. Come on, that ain't the way nobody is made... You ain't gay unless you sleeping with the opposite sex." The 51-year-old former boxer was later reprimanded for his anti-gay remarks. “Evander was told that

his views weren’t shared by a large section of society and that expressing those views and the language he used could be seen as extremely offensive to many people," read a statement released by the show to RadarOnline.com. "He was warned to think carefully about repeating them. Evander understood and accepted this. The producers of Big Brother will continue to monitor this and will take further appropriate action should a similar matter arise again.” Despite the many complaints received, a representative for media watchdog Ofcom told the Independent there are no plans to launch a formal investigation into the issue at the moment. Holyfield has been married three times and has fathered 11 children, Yahoo! Sports Canada noted. He is a devout Christian.

Los Angeles -- The Campaign for College Opportunity released the third in a new series of research reports, “The State of Higher Education in California: The Gender and Racial Gap Analysis,” detailing the wide gaps between men and women in college preparation, enrollment and completion in California, with attention to the significant gap between Black and Latino men compared to their female counterparts. California is home to more college-aged men than women. However, women of all ethnic groups are now outpacing men in the state in terms of enrollment and graduation from both the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) levels. The gaps in college achievement are widest among Black and Latino men and women, according to the report. The education gap for Latino and Black men

begins upon high school graduation, with 93 Black or Latino men graduating high school for every 100 Black or Latina females. The number of males across all ethnicities who complete the A-G requirements (courses required for admission consideration into the UC or CSU) is low -- there is more than a 30% gap between the number of Black and Latina women and their male counterparts completing these require-

ments. The study also found that almost twice as many Black women enroll in the UC or CSU as Black men, and one-and-a-half times as many Latina women as Latino men. The gender gap widens even more among college graduates. For every 100 Black women who graduate from the CSU, only 45 Black men do so. For every 100 Latinas who graduate from CSU, 51 Latino men STUDY, See page 12A

As a newly independent young adult attending and paying for college, you'll experience many new and exciting things. But there's one thing we hope you'll never experience: being targeted by con artists looking to take advantage of inexperienced college students who are struggling to support themselves. International students are especially vulnerable to scholarship scams, as they must juggle starting college with becoming familiar with a new country and culture. Here are some tips and resources to help students avoid falling for some of the most common scams. 1. Don't fall victim to telephone or Internet scams: If you are an international student in the U.S., you could be seen as an easy target for scammers.

Remember to never share personal information over the telephone, especially your Social Security or passport number. Government officials will never call and ask for money over the phone, so if this happens to you, make sure you report it to the Federal Trade Commission. 2. Don't pay to apply for scholarships: When it comes to financial aid, be wary of scholarship pro-

grams that require an application fee or sound too good to be true. Legitimate scholarship programs will include selection parameters, which might include a high GPA, participation in clubs and activities or volunteer experience. Do some research to make sure the sponsor of any scholarship you apply for is legitimate. If you are unsure about the sponsor SCAMS, See page 12A

State News Gov. Jerry Brown Faces Policy Challenges Boxer Speaks on Need to Extend Jobless Ahead of Likely Reelection Bid Benefits for Long-Term Unemployed

By Juliet Williams SACRAMENTO— Gov. Jerry Brown is sprinting into the final year of his third term as governor with a series of policy successes and powerful financial backers boosting his all-but-certain run for another term. His voter-approved tax increases and relative restraint on state budgeting helped end years of deficits and have even led to projections of future surpluses. He has given every indication that he will seek re-election and already has racked up more than $15 million in contributions for a potential campaign, far eclipsing the fundraising of any of his would-be Republican rivals.

Statement from Rep. Bass on LA Unified calling a special election

Representative Karen Bass (D-Calif.) released the following statement on Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD’s) decision to fill the current board vacancy via a special election in lieu of an appointment. “The members of the LAUSD school board have made their decision to keep this seat temporarily vacant and to call a special election instead of appointing a caretaker. Nonetheless, the six remaining board members will still have to face crucial funding decisions over the next several months, and I am hopeful that the current

Rep. Karen Bass board members will commit to transparent inclusive process that will result in an equitable distribution of the new state funds that LAUSD will receive

under the new state funding formula even though the District 1 seat will be empty over the next six to eight months. It was important that the board instructed district counsel to thoroughly review options for representation for this period of time, and report back next week. "Community leaders convened their own meetings in the past few days to address this, and now more than ever, the community must remain engaged to ensure South Los Angeles schools are represented in all important matters that come before the board.”

U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) spoke on the floor after the Senate voted to overcome a Republican filibuster and allow consideration of an extension of unemployment insurance for more than 1.3 million Americans and 222,000 Californians who are still struggling to find work. “There are people out there that are at their wit’s end,” Senator Boxer said. “Holding their lives together, keeping their homes at 55 degrees when they have little children in it, not knowing if they can

Senator Barbara Boxer pay the rent, not knowing if they can go to the grocery store, not knowing if they’ll be homeless, not

knowing what the future holds. The least we can do in this chamber is stand up and fight for them.” Senator Boxer added, “Federal unemployment benefits have been extended no less than 28 times since 1958, 15 times under Republican presidents and 13 times under Democratic presidents. So this is nothing new… The fact that it’s been make such a big deal is incomprehensible given the circumstances of us recovering from the greatest recession since the Great Depression.”

Assemblymember Brown to Hold Bill Until After Court Ruling

SACRAMENTO - Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) has agreed to hold AB 475 in the Assembly Higher Education Committee until the Ed O’Bannon’s lawsuit is adjudicated in federal court. The case is tentatively scheduled for June 9th and will be presided over by Judge Claudia Wilken in the 9th District Court of Appeals. “It would be preemptive to enact AB 475 before the Ed O’Bannon Case is adjudicated,” Brown said. “This case has the potential to fundamentally change the NCAA and the culture of college athletics.”

Ed O’Bannon is the lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against the NCAA, alleging that the NCAA violated anti-trust law by con-

fiscating and profiting on the likeness of former studentathletes. The NCAA claims that student-athletes forfeit their right to profit from their athletic exploits when they accept a scholarship from a member university. “I am still extremely passionate about protecting the rights of student-athletes who should receive the education they are promised when they are recruited. Once the ruling is handed down we will be ready with legislation that will empower California’s studentathletes,” Brown concluded. For more information, contact Ashley Jones at (909) 381-3238.

largest and most notorious landlords – JD Homes Rentals – alleging operation of a huge portfolio of slum housing. The lawsuit seeks immediate court intervention to ensure that substandard conditions in the thousands of units managed by JD Homes Rentals are repaired and the properties made habitable. Catalina Mendoza, a JD Homes tenant and party to the suit, said, “For years, JD Homes refused to fix bad conditions in our home. We need the court’s help so that this landlord makes our homes safe and healthy places to live.” Mendoza and her family have resided in the JD Homes rental unit for seven years. Typical of tenants’ experiences with JD Homes, the Mendozas have made requests for repairs on a number of issues that were routinely ignored. Among the allegations, the complaint details JD Homes’ business practices of failing to maintain properties, leaving tenants with roaches, leaking plumbing, defective wiring, and a plethora of other unsafe conditions. Requests for repairs are often ignored for months, and sometimes years. When repairs are made, the complaint alleges, they are merely cosmetic and fail to address the health and safety issues, and JD Homes often retaliates against tenants who complain to authorities. According to Leah Simon-Weisberg, Legal Director of Tenants Together, the lawsuit is the largest known housing conditions

lawsuit against a California landlord. She characterized the substandard conditions as “shocking and pervasive” and part of an “ongoing business plan to profit at the expense of vulnerable tenants by collecting rent while refusing to invest in keeping the properties safe and habitable.” The Complaint alleges that JD Homes Rentals, a real estate property management company that is owned, operated and managed by John, David, and Bryce Hovannisian, has added hundreds of foreclosed properties to its inventory since the housing crisis in 2008. Patricia A. Van Dyke, a staff attorney at Bet Tzedek Legal Services, co-lead counsel on the case, offered that “residents and tenants need immediate relief from slum conditions and neighborhood blight.” The deplorable conditions of JD Homes Rentals properties are well known in the area, but the landlord has been able to sidestep efforts to force compliance with health and safety codes, at least partially because of the size of their holdings and the extent of the issues. Local officials and advocates welcomed today’s filing. Tenants of these properties, or anyone with information about JD Homes Rentals, are encouraged to call the litigation team at the following hotline that has been set up by Bet Tzedek Legal Services in connection with this case: 559-376-2060.

The Florida mom who lost a controversial “Stand Your Ground” case after firing what she called a warning shot at her abusive husband might be thrown in prison again if a judge rules she violated the strict terms of her release. Prosecutors claim that Marissa Alexander violated the terms of her November in-home detention by shopping for clothes, driving family members to the airport, going to the bank and running other errands, the Florida TimesUnion reported. Alexander, 33, who is preparing for her March retrial, claims through her lawyers that the Jack-

that the single shot she fired near her estranged husband and stepchildren was legal under the state’s controversial Stand Your Ground law. Instead, she was convicted of aggravated assault with a firearm. No one was wounded in the shooting and the mother of three had a clean record. Mandatory sentencing rules, however, stipulated that she receive a 20-year sentence -- a penalty that many decried as excessive. An appeals court ordered in September that she deserved a new trial, because the jury received improper instructions from the judge about proving self-defense. ALEXANDER, See page 12A

Foreclosures Drop to Lowest Level in 7 years

By Blake Ellis NEW YORK -- The foreclosure crisis is showing signs that it's finally fading away. The number of new foreclosure filings -- which includes default notices, auctions and bank repossessions -- dropped 15% to a total of 113,454 properties in November, according to RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosed properties. That was the biggest monthly decline since November 2010, and foreclosure filings are now at the lowest level since December 2006. From a year ago, filings are down 37%. "[T]he depth and breadth of the decrease provides strong evidence that we are entering the ninth inning of this foreclosure crisis with the outcome all but guaranteed," Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac,

Why a Tenant Background Check is So Important

Identity Theft is absolutely rampant. According to security firm Lifelock. com, this type of fraud is the number one most reported financial/property theft in the US. Since the early 2000s, 37 states have created legislation outlawing "Identity Theft" as a separate, distinct crime. ID theft is now a $21 billion business, and says nearly 7 percent of American families are victimized every year and those numbers are growing, reports StatisticBrain. How does your tenant know the guy next door is not an escaped convict, a convicted armed robber, sex offender/child molester or murderer? Your first concern, as a landlord/property manager is whether an applicant is a "good" tenant: someone who pays the rent on time, doesn't tear up the

property and doesn't cause problems for your other renters. The American Apartment Owner's Association (AAOA) says the best way to insure your applicant doesn't have a history of bad tenant behavior (and if he's not an escaped convicted serial killer) is through a tenant background check. You can do a limited check of somebody's background your-

self, but to get an accurate, in-depth and broad-based report on every possible aspect of the person's life, you'll need to buy a report from one of the thousands of background screening services in the market. A Complete Background Check Report Within a complete professional Background Report, there are numerous component reports that most screening services, such as RentecDirect. com, allow you to order a la carte. Here are the most common reports that generally cover the needs of property managers: Credit Report By far the most requested report and probably the most useful, the Credit Report comes from three leading credit monitoring agencies: Equifax, Experian and TENANT, See page 9B

More Homebuyers Willing to Compromise

Faced with tight inventories of homes for sale, more buyers are realizing they may have to bend a little in order to get the home they want. According to a new survey by the real estate brokerage Redfin, 35 percent of real estate agents said that buyers are now “willing to pay more” to find a home compared to this summer. About 30 percent of agents also reported that buyers are more “flexible on features,” held “lower expectations” for how far their money would stretch, and were “looking to new construction” due to inventory constraints. Real estate agents also reported that homebuyers were more “prepared to waive contingencies” in order to win a bid. Eighty-seven percent of the Redfin real estate agents surveyed cited “limited inventory” as the biggest challenge that homebuyers face nationwide. While homebuyers may be getting more realistic about market conditions, the survey found that sellers are not. Sixty-three percent of agents said that sellers have “unrealistic expectations” about the value of their home. What’s more, 31 percent of agents say that sellers also are frustrated with the number of homes available that they would be interested in buying.

Retirement Plan Limits Largely Unchanged in 2014 Anyone who's bought groceries, filled their gas tank or paid insurance premiums recently would probably be surprised to learn that, according to Department of Labor's Consumer Price Index for Urban Consumers (CPIU), the rate of inflation is relatively flat – only 1.2 percent from September 2012 to September 2013. That's bad news for people who were hoping to boost their contributions to an IRA, 401(k) plan or other tax-advantaged retirement savings accounts, since the IRS uses the CPI-U's September yearover-year performance to determine whether or not to make cost-of-living adjustments to many of the retirement contributions you and your employer can make in the following year.

(NewsUSA) - As the winter months drag on, cabin fever sets in for many people. However, being cooped up inside is even harder for people suffering from asthma and allergies because more time indoors means greater exposure to indoor allergens. Although mold, pet dander and dust mites are often blamed for sneezing and itchy eyes this time of year, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) warns that winter pests such as cockroaches and rodents can also be common asthma and allergy triggers. "The saliva, urine and fecal droppings from cockroaches and rodents contain allergen proteins known to elicit allergic reactions and asthma attacks," said Dr. Jorge Parada, medical advisor for the NPMA. "During the winter months, cockroaches and rodents seek shelter from the elements inside homes, thereby increasing allergic reactions among those people who suffer from allergies and asthma." According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), cockroach allergens are present in 63 percent of American

Watch out for winter allergy and asthma triggers. homes, and mouse allergens in 82 percent. Moreover, the number of homes containing cockroach allergens increases to as many as 78 to 98 percent in urban areas. "It's important for a person suffering from allergy or asthma symptoms to see his or her doctor. A medical professional will be able to test for a cockroach allergy, as well as other common allergens," Parada advised. "Although there is no cure for asthma, asthma can be controlled through medical treatment and management of environmental triggers. A doctor may recommend the use of antihistamines and decongestant medications to manage symptoms, and

may also prescribe an antiinflammatory medication and bronchodilators." The NPMA recommends the following tips to help keep allergy-causing pests out: • Seal cracks and holes around the outside of the home, including utility pipes. • Properly ventilate basements and crawl spaces to prevent moisture buildup. • Keep counters free of crumbs, and vacuum floors often to reduce the accumulation of allergens. • Keep garbage in a sealed container, and dispose of it regularly. • Pay extra attention to kitchens and bathrooms -especially under appliances WINTER, See page 9B

usually develop AIDS within five years. Typically, in the older strains of the virus, it takes much longer than that. The good news is that despite the fact that patients are developing AIDS much quicker, the current medications available for treatment are still effective against the new strain. Experts say that it's just a matter of time before the new strain spreads to other parts of the world, including the US and Europe.

Is High Blood Pressure Okay Scientists Discover New HIV Strain for Some People?

By Felicia Vance If you’re older than age 60 and have high blood pressure, you might want to check with your doctor about a recent update for managing the condition. That’s because according to new research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, a committee of experts determined it’s OK for older folks to have a higher blood pressure reading. The group of 17 hypertension experts said they now believe that the initial, systolic component of a blood pressure (BP) reading—the top number—can be about 10 points higher than was previously considered the gold standard. In the past, most doctors aimed to keep a patient’s blood pressure below 140 for the systolic reading and 90 for the diastolic—the bottom number. But after combing through mountains of data from the past 30 years, experts found

Researchers have uncovered an aggressive new strain of HIV in GuineaBissau, a West African country. The new strain, discovered in 2011 and called A3/02, has been shown to cause people to contract AIDS almost two years faster. According to researchers, the new strain has so far only been found in GuineaBissau. It apparently forms when two strands of HIV that are most common in that country are fused to-

that the systolic number can actually be higher, especially for older folks who can remain healthy with a 150/90 reading. Experts predicted the guidelines will affect millions of people currently being treated for high blood pressure who may now be able to go off their medications. (Hypertension is usually controlled by combining a healthy diet with medication to ward off strokes, heart attack, kidney failure and death if the illness is left

untreated.) But the experts stressed that these guidelines only apply to people 60 and older. “There is insufficient evidence in hypertensive persons younger than 60 years for a systolic goal, or in those younger than 30 years for a diastolic goal,” experts stated in the report. “The panel [still] recommends a BP of less than 140/90 for those groups.” Studies show 9 out of 10 African Americans with hypertension develop early heart disease.

A Canadian study found the number of people living to 100 and beyond has risen over 70 percent in the last 15 years. Researchers from the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences looked at data from approximately 1.8 million people 65 and over and found that the number of centenarians in Ontario has risen from 1,069 in 1995 to 1,842 in 2010. What’s more is that a staggering 85 percent of these centenarians are women. “Our study highlights that older people are living longer, and women make up

a significant proportion of centenarians,” lead author Paula Rochon said in a release. “The predominance of women among those of advanced age challenges us to consider tailoring health and social care to meet their particular needs.” Researchers also looked at the health care services provided to the older adults as well as their living arrangements. Over 95 percent of the individuals saw a primary care physician in the year preceding the study and many were prescribed preventive medications like statins. Global life expectancy has risen from 64 in 1990 to 70 in 2010, according to the World Health Orga-

nization. While women are expected to live four years longer than men at birth, the findings are some of the first to look at a large population of centenarians and their health habits. Experts believe women outlive men due to a delay in the onset of cardiovascular health issues like heart attack and stroke, compared with men. Rochon hopes the findings will help improve health care strategies for the aging population and also help policy makers. “We need a better understanding of who centenarians are, and how and when they use the health care system in order to improve their health service delivery,” Rochon said.

Meditation May Reduce Mild Depression, Anxiety

By Steven Reinberg Daily meditation might help some people relieve anxiety, depression and pain, Johns Hopkins University researchers report. Many people meditate in an attempt to reduce stress and stress-related health problems. But whether this centuries-old approach to greater self-awareness has actual medical benefits isn't really known. For this study, published online Jan. 6 in JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers reviewed 47 prior studies that looked at meditation's effect on various conditions that included substance abuse, eating habits, sleep, pain and weight in addition to depression and anxiety. "The maximum strength of evidence we found was moderate for anxiety, depression and pain; low for some others and insufficient for the bulk of outcomes we evaluated," said lead researcher Dr. Madhav Goyal, an assistant professor of medicine. He noted, however, that few trials included people with a clinical diagnosis of anxiety or depression. Meditation, said Goyal, "is an active training of the mind to increase awareness, MEDITATION, See page 9B

How Developers Want to Make Apple's New Promise to Women and Minorities You a Cyborg in 2014

By Malathi Nayak SAN FRANCISCO Wearable computers like Google Glass and the Samsung Galaxy Gear watch may not have caught fire yet, but that hasn't stopped mobile game developers from rushing to create apps for the new devices, eager to seize what they hope is the next big moment in consumer technology. Niccolo DeMasi, the CEO of mobile games maker Glu Mobile, compares the potential of wearables to that of Apple Inc's iPhone launch in 2007 - an event that was the catalyst to create much of the mobile app world that exists now. DeMasi and others are betting that by developing compelling apps designed with the wearables' special features in mind, they can create overwhelming demand for the products. "A whole new app ecosystem is going to be born," said Shawn Hardin, chief executive officer of Mind Pirate, which will release "Global Food Fight," its first game for Google Glass, this month. "Those who are going to make that happen in a big

way are going to be valuable companies because of it, and those who wait too late won't be a part of it." The market for mobile game apps is expected to grow to $17 billion this year from just $6 billion in 2010, analysts said, and wearables could fuel growth in the years to come. An array of new smartwatches and devices like fitness tracker Fitbit will go on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, heralding a potential breakthrough for the devices in 2014. Google Glass is expected to launch broadly

sometime this year. So far, its user-testing version has only been available at a $1,500 price to about 15,000 developers and consumers who registered to be part of its early adopter program. Galaxy Gear smartwatches from Samsung have garnered mixed reviews since their September launch, and consumers have not warmed to them yet. Wearable computing devices basically function as mini-computers, mainly strapped on a user’s wrist or face, though they may end up being worn on other parts of the body, too.

As smartphones begin to render low-end cameras obsolete and Netflix continues to upend the DVD and Blu-ray market, it’s clear the technology landscape will look dramatically different in the near future. Here are five tech products we predict will go the way of the dodo in the next

half-decade. Blu-ray/DVD players Netflix, Netflix, Netflix. Amazingly, the entire demise of Blu-rays and DVDs (and Blockbuster) are due to one company. There were other players in the cultural shift to streaming movies, but Netflix is the iTunes of movies

on demand. Funny enough, iTunes offers movie rentals as well. Stand-alone in-car GPS units In a little over six years, over 1.3 billion iPhone and Android smartphones have been sold around the world, and all of those devices have access to mapping software. Combine that with the propagation of in-car GPS systems, and it spells a swift demise for the stand-alone GPS units for vehicle dashboards, which saw widespread success in the early and mid-2000s. Dial-up Internet Yes, dial-up Internet is still around, and people still use it. In fact, 3 percent of Americans still use dial-up Internet. That’s 9 million people, equal to the population of New Jersey. Only 65 percent of Americans currently have broadband connections. Thanks to the necessity of the Internet and new alternatives for connecting to the Internet at faster speeds, this won’t be the case for long. Low-end digital cameras We have Apple to thank for this one. The 2010 release of the iPhone 4 and its game-changing camera forced the mobile industry to step up camera quality to the point that it has rendered sub-$200 pointand-shoot cameras all but obsolete. Car keys One of the quickest and least discussed changes to happen over the last few years is the reduction of physical car keys and the introduction of smart keys in a number of new vehicles by manufacturers. With benefits like keyless entry, push to start, driver profiles and remote start, buyers of newer vehicles have enjoyed the benefits of the new smart system.

The added language reads: “The Committee is committed to actively seeking out highly qualified women and individuals from minority groups to include in the pool from which Board nominees are chosen.” The change follows diversity concerns raised by shareholders Trillium Asset Management LLC and the Sustainability Group, which objected to former Avon CEO Andrea Jung being the eight-person board’s only woman and sole ethnic minority.

By Ryan Nakashima LAS VEGAS — Roku Inc. is launching a line of TVs that play video from services like Netflix without requiring a set-top box. While similar to smart TVs on the market, Roku's Internet streaming platform has some 1,200 apps and offers a more comprehensive selection of niche content. The Saratoga, Calif.based streaming set-top box pioneer is partnering with two of the biggest Chinese TV makers in the world, TCL Corp. and Hisense International Co. Ltd. on six models. It plans to showcase them at the

annual gadget show in Las Vegas, International CES. The Roku TV will also offer users a way to access

feeds from regular live TV providers and to connect to other devices such as Bluray disc players.

By Betsy Isaacson The largest, most spectacular TVs in the known universe are currently all in one place: the Las Vegas strip, which is glowing more than usual as light from a thousand gadgets illuminates the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Along with solarpowered cars and 3D-printing pens, CES always holds a host of beastly, enormous TVs, each claiming to do something more mindblowing than the last. We've collected some of the most genuinely fantastic TVs from this year's conference for reader perusal. Flat screen television manufacturer Vizio revealed a 6 feet high, 9 feet wide Ultra HD TV. ("Ultra HD," for those unfamiliar, means it's four times the resolution of HD.) According to the Baltimore Sun, Vizio was reluctant to say the creation is the largest Ultra HD TV at CES -- claiming other TVs might surpass this one in coming days. OLED TVs (OLED stands for "Organic LightEmitting Diode) don't need backlighting; a thin, flexible OLED screen will glow simply by having electricity run through it. This

allows OLED TV manufacturers like LG to put out thin, gorgeous screens that curve, allowing for a "a more immersive, glarefree experience," according to NBC News. LG's largest curved screen on display is 77 inches wide -- that's more than 6 feet from end to end. Samsung's Smart TVs can't match Vizio's for sheer scale -- but they're desirable, nonetheless, as the linchpin of Samsung's new "Smart Home." The "Smart Home" allows homeowners to control gadgets all over their house via television

or (when on the go) smartphone -- you can check the TV to see when the laundry's done, for example, or use a smartphone to flick off the lights after you've left the house. The sad fact about Ultra HD (also called 4K) is that it usually isn't affordable unless you already own a private jet. Not so with Toshiba's "entry level" 4K TV, a 55-inch (yeah, that's nearly 5 feet) Ultra HD monster that's supposedly going to be the "affordable" entry in Toshiba's Ultra HD lineup. Only problem is, the price hasn't been released yet.

Commentary “Race War” at Fox News

Conservatives Embrace Selective Stupidity

George E. Curry In 2013, race still mattered – especially at Fox News. According to MediaMatters, the watchdog group, last year was a banner period for race-baiting at Fox. “Viewers who spent 2013 absorbed in Fox News might be under the impression that an all-out race war has erupted across the nation this year, thanks to the network’s coverage of everything from voter fraud to Santa Claus echoing one common theme: white folks are being victimized in Obama’s America,” an analysis of coverage on the network concluded. The review showed that Fox, the nation’s toprated cable network with 1.76 million daily viewers, routinely exploited racial fears to boost its ratings. “Fox became obsessed with black crime rates in the summer of 2013, when Floridian George Zimmerman went on trial for the 2012 murder of AfricanAmerican teenager Trayvon Martin, whom Zimmerman shot and killed while he was walking home from a convenience store. Zimmerman, identified as white Hispanic, alleged that he shot Martin in selfdefense, and was not subsequently arrested or charged with any crime until a sig-

nificant public outcry made the story national news,” MediaMatters noted. “Fox immediately began running defense for Zimmerman in what became a red meat story for the network – an opportunity to justify right-wing gun culture and stand your ground laws, stoke fears about the dangers of black youth, and paint white-onblack crime as exceedingly rare and usually justified while black crime is exploding.” When Fox wasn’t fear mongering about Black crime, the report stated, it was supporting voter ID laws that suppress the African-American vote. “2013 marked a unique year with regard to free and fair elections in the United States. In June, the conservative bloc of the U.S. Supreme Court disregarded history, legal precedent, and congressional intent in a 5-4 Shelby County decision that gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA). Weeks later, thousands of Americans gathered with civil rights leaders in the nation’s capital to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington – a 1963 march that featured Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I have a dream” speech and helped lead to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and

aforementioned VRA,” the analysis recounted. “The summer’s Shelby County decision paved the way for Republican-controlled state legislatures to continue pushing through voter ID laws, a movement purporting to fight voter fraud that in fact disenfranchises Democratic voting blocs, particularly minorities, by imposing stringent prerequisites to vote that many older and minority voters cannot easily meet. Previously, such measures – in states with a history of disenfranchising minorities – required approval from the Justice Department before being implemented.” The report noted that the Voting Rights Act’s preclearance provision had been invoked more than 700 times between 1982 and 2006 to prevent racially discriminatory voting proposals to go into effect. “Perhaps the one story that best encapsulates the way Fox News goes out of its way to paint a distorted image of the crossroads of race and crime in America, it’s the network’s coverage FOX, See page 9B

and those who believe in global warming is that Jesus will return.” Donald Trump, with his usual carnival-barker gusto, tweeted, “This very expensive GLOBAL WARMING (his emphasis) [expletive] has got to stop.” All three ignored the obvious: that both incidents are the kind of things that usually happen in the winter in the northern United States, and in the frozen expanses of the Antarctic and thus aren’t likely to indicate anything, one way or the other, about decades- and centurieslong climatic patterns. Last year Paul Krugman, the Princeton professor and New York Times columnist, attributed such behavior to what he calls a “widening ‘wonk gap’ – the G.O.P.’s near-complete lack of expertise on anything substantive.” But Krugman and other political analysts have also noted something else behind this seeming selective stupidity – that the conservative movement’s political actions are being grounded more and more in religious belief. That development was underscored by the Pew Research Center’s late December release of their new survey of the “Public’s Views on Human Evolu-

tion.” What their research showed was that while Americans’ views on evolution as a whole are about the same as four years ago, the proportion of Republicans who reject the theory of evolution and say human beings have always existed in their present form has sharply increased. The survey found that while 54 percent of Republicans said they believed in evolution four years ago, only 43 percent now do. Nearly half – 48 percent – now express a belief in creationism, compared with 39 percent four years ago. Those percentage swings differ sharply from the stability of views of the rest of the American public, regardless of how they’re differentiated: Overall, six in 10 Americans believe in evolution; one-third does not. Roughly two-thirds of both those who identify themselves as Democrats and those who identify themselves as Independents believe in evolution, findings essentially unchanged from 2009. A key answer to the striking movement of Republicans on evolution lies CONSERVATIVES, See page 9B

Charter Schools in Wisconsin -- A Great Alternative

Walter Fields demn the actions of this young man, and mourn the death of an innocent bystander, but we had better come to terms with the degree to which many young people harbor deep resentment and anger over their nothingness in our nation. Decades of indifference toward youth, and specifically young Black boys and men, has resulted in generations of young people who internalize any slight as threatening the little shred of humanity they possess. It is why the most innocuous comment can trigger the most extreme reaction. In communities where so little regard is shown for young people, they protect the only thing they have left – their dignity – at any and all cost. This is not just a streetlevel reality; it persists in homes and schools. The belligerence of many young people in family environments is the direct result of their feeling belittled and abandoned. So many of our youth are raising themselves and forced to go it alone, that any suggestion of behavior modification is taken as a personal affront. The same goes on in the classroom. Stories of student rage and violence directed at teachers is often rooted in the

A virus has been sweeping through the ranks of the conservative movement in recent years – and it seems to be getting worse with each passing week. By that I mean that in a number of areas conservatives have been deliberately rejecting widely-accepted facts in order to cling to old, or embrace new, bizarre notions that further their political agenda. In other words, their behavior doesn’t stem from the kind of “ignorance” that is simply not knowing something. Rather, they willfully reject a particular knowledge because they just don’t want to believe it. For example, last week’s snowstorm that slashed across the northern Midwest and the northeast and, half a world away, the trapping in ice in the Antarctic of a research ship on a mission to investigate climate change provoked some conservatives to claim they represented damning evidence against assertions of global warming. “‘Global warming’ isn’t so warm these days,” Louisiana Republican Rep. John Fleming felt compelled to tweet. Erick Erickson, the widely-read conservative blogger, waxed theological: “The difference between people who believe in the 2d coming of Jesus

Beyond the Rhetoric:

Killing and Dying for Respect There was some disbelief over social media when it was suggested the accused shooter of two Newark, New Jersey youth was prompted by the suspect’s feeling disrespected. The suspect, a 15 year-old boy, is reported to have been angry because he believed two other young men had ‘hit’ on a girl he was dating. The boy’s rage resulted in the death of a 13-year-old girl, Zainee Hailey, who was struck by a stray bullet while taking out the trash on Christmas night. Another victim, a target of the shooter and one of the boys the suspect alleged to have acted disrespectfully toward him, died of his injuries. The third victim was shot in the neck and seriously injured. While so-called crimes of passion are not rare, many adults can’t fathom how a child could be driven to kill because of being slighted. It seems inconceivable to many people that being “dissed” could trigger such a violent response, let alone the actions of a teenager over youthful romance. However, to dismiss the importance of “respect” among youth, particularly Black boys, is to miss the larger issue of social disconnection. We can con-

young person’s sense of being disrespected by an authority figure; the same tension that often surfaces during interactions with police. It could be the tone that is used by the adult, the body language or words spoken in a way that conveys the message that the young person is viewed as inferior. It is why youth to youth interactions turn deadly. If you are not being respected by adults who are expected to demonstrate civility, you sure are not going to let a peer put you down. The alternative, perhaps walking away, is viewed as an act of submission, of cowardice that buys you nothing on the street except more abuse. If you can’t protect your personal “space,” you begin to question your very existence. And in a day and age when life is viewed through the shortest lens by many young people, the learning curve is irrelevant since there is no sense of the possibility of a tomorrow or adulthood.

Across the nation our public schools are not performing as they should or as they used to. There is so much attention given to improving our public schools but the successes are far and too few. According to the National Assessment of Adult Literacy, American literacy rates have not changed in over ten years. With all the attention we are giving to public education there is just no improvement by using the traditional methods. Just reading alone is a factor in national security, economic attainment, access to health care and the chance of full participation as a 1st class citizen. According to the US Department of Justice, “The link between academic failure and delinquency, violence, and crime is welded to reading failure”. Yes, 85 percent of all juveniles in our juvenile court system are functionally illiterate. Over 70 percent of inmates in our prisons cannot read above a fourth grade level. As the great Booker T. Washington stated, “We cannot be truly free without an education.” We as a nation must come up with new direction as the same old methods are failing us while education levels and literacy in many

rival nations are improving and pulling away from the achievement of US schools. Alas, the state of Wisconsin has stepped up and created an alternative. The state legislature of this progressive state has authorized a comprehensive Charter School Program. The state has three types of charter schools. The first is a basic Charter School. Here is the definition: “Charter schools are public, nonsectarian schools created through a businesslike contract or “charter” between the charter governance board and the sponsoring school board or other chartering authority. The Wisconsin charter school law gives charter schools freedom from most state rules and regulations in exchange for greater accountability for results. The charter defines the missions and methods of the charter school. The chartering authority holds the school accountable to its charter. The charter school motto is Autonomy for Accountability.” The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction justifies the above via this explanation: “Wisconsin established charter schools to foster an environment for innovation and parental choice. They can exist as living laboratories that

influence the larger public school system and introduce an element of competition within that system. Charter schools are created with the best elements of regular public schools in mind. Their leaders may experiment with different instructional theories, site-based management techniques, and other innovations. They learn, sometimes by trial and error, what works best for their student population. Regular schools can observe and learn from what happens in the charter school and make similar improvements. Through this process, the entire public school system is continually challenged to improve itself.” They also demand parental involvement. Parents can participate in choosing upcoming curriculum changes, technology methods and encouraging the entire community to stay involved with all school programs and give input for new direction. It must be working! The greater Milwaukee area has 37 charter schools running with many more on WISCONSIN, See page 9B

HARRIS From page 1A Feigel, 50, and Craig Merrill Mortensen, 60, all of Fresno, were arrested today and charged with 288 felony counts including perjury, filing false court records and preparing false evidence. Cambria Lisa Barton, 21, remains at large. All were booked into the Fresno County Jail on bail ranging from $27,500 to $1,795,000 and face restitution payments of at least $3.5 million. According to the Attorney General’s filing, the Barton family, along with Vedenoff, Sandra Barton’s boyfriend, allegedly worked with two lawyers, Mortensen and Feigel, to identify seemingly abandoned residential properties and file for adverse possession of the property in court in order to obtain title. Once a Barton family member obtained ownership, the property would then allegedly be restored and was typically sold or rented. Under California law (Code of Civil Procedure 325), an individual can claim adverse possession of real property if he or she has occupied or claimed it continuously for at least five years and paid property taxes for that period of time, among other requirements. According to the Attorney General’s filing, since 2006, Barton family members and their attorneys allegedly provided factually impossible and knowingly fraudulent evidence and statements in court under penalty of perjury in order to obtain at least 23 residential properties in nine counties. These counties include: Fresno, Kern, Los Angeles, Madera, Merced, Santa Barbara, San Mateo, Sonoma and Tulare. The alleged scheme was uncovered when Nancy Zelepsky, the true owner of a residence in Santa Barbara County, sought an equity loan in 2010 and contacted a title company in order to determine if there were any liens against her property. Zelepsky was notified that Sandra Barton had been listed as the deed holder of the home in July of that year through documents filed by Mortensen. After seeking assistance from the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County, a court determined that Sandra Barton’s prior claim to the property was

fraudulent and restored ownership to Zelepsky. The court then notified the California State Bar regarding Mortensen and the California Attorney General’s office opened an investigation in June 2011. This case was headed by Attorney General Harris’ Mortgage Fraud Strike Force, which was created in May 2011 to investigate and prosecute misconduct at all stages of the mortgage process. Sandra Barton faces a maximum state prison sentence of approximately 103 years, Mortensen faces 108 years, Feigel faces 15 years, Christopher Barton faces 7 years and Vedenoff faces 8 years. The Attorney General’s Office was assisted in this case by the State Bar of California, Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office, Kern County Sheriff’s Department, Clovis Police Department and Fresno Police Department.

Religious or Traditionalist – This may not be the right word, perhaps risk-averse would be better, but leadership always involves change… Always. Without change there is no need for leadership. So, those who cling so tightly to the past are harder to lead to something new. There is nothing wrong with tradition or with enjoying the memories of the past. It’s when someone’s love of our history prevents them from embracing their future that it becomes difficult leading them. Self – The hardest person to lead is almost always our self.

WEED From page 3A marijuana will encourage more young people to smoke pot instead of exploring things more constructive and challenging. Meanwhile, Ruth Marcus, who also acknowledges having smoked her share of pot in days now associated with “polyester,” worries about data showing that the pothead teen often lowers his IQ permanently. This is hardly a new take on the matter. Mark Kleiman, a UCLA public-policy professor and a leading voice and author on the drug war, has long been convinced that legalization will raise addiction rates, and encourages more carefully targeted enforcement efforts. To anyone who supports the end of the war on drugs—and opposes legalization in states like Colorado—views like Kleiman’s and the others’ can’t help but seem like a bucket of cold water. Here we all are, excited about the “ Hamsterdam (Preview) ” vision from the third season of The Wire coming true, in which the cops allow drugs to be sold in a carefully policed setting instead of endlessly rounding up the Bodies and Wallaces. And then here come these pundits and professors worried about increased addiction rates—it feels abstract, soulless. Which is why it’s too bad they’re probably right. It’s how I felt when I debated Kleiman a while back. The burden is on the rest of us to explain why, if drugs were legal, more people wouldn’t use them. But there’s more to the issue than this. People like Kleiman, Brooks and Marcus have little reason to consider that the war on drugs is the main obstacle, in our times, to getting past race in any real way. Running a society requires hard choices, and for me, quite frankly, that is a social priority to the extent that I consider possible rises in usage and addiction rates collateral damage in comparison.

It’s pretty simple: Because drugs are illegal, one can sell them for a huge markup, and that means you can make a living, or even get by, helping to sell drugs instead of getting a legitimate job. That black market stands as an eternal temptation—often quite a rational one—for a young black boy stuck in a lousy school and growing up in a tough neighborhood. Two things result. One is that for this boy, negative interactions with often surly white cops are the main contact he ever has with the world outside his neighborhood. Hence, generations of young black men who feel like aliens in the only country they will ever know. TAX From page 3A Oxnard, Catholic Charities in Moorpark, SurePath Financial Solutions in Camarillo, Santa Clara Valley Neighborhood for Learning in Santa Paula, Many Mansions in Thousand Oaks, and at the Job & Career Centers in West Oxnard, Ventura and Simi Valley. The public is asked to call 2-1-1 beginning January 21 to schedule an appointment first before stopping by any of the ten Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) locations throughout Ventura County. Some of the VITA locations do not accept walk-ins. Tax filers must bring a social security card or an ITIN for each family member, W-2 forms for all jobs worked in 2013, all 1099 forms for other income earned, photo identification for each adult filing, child care provider information, and a cancelled check for direct deposit of refund. Bringing a prior year tax return is helpful. Back again this year, is an online strategy available for individuals who prefer to file their own income tax returns using www.myfreetaxes.com/VenturaCounty. This is an easy-to-use, interview-based software that allows eligible taxpayers to prepare and file for free their federal and state taxes online. The target population for this program are single filers with W2 income only, who are computer savvy, and possess an email address. Last year (from February through April) a total of 52 volunteers prepared 1,586 tax returns at nine Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites located throughout Ventura County. A mobile team strategy was also utilized to reach communities with limited access to the nine permanent sites. The number of returns prepared in 2013 represented a 32 percent increase over the prior year. The total amount of tax refunds to clients last year was $2,282,958. Ventura County Financial Empowerment Partnership members include United Way of Ventura County, the Business and Employment Services Department of the County of Ventura’s Human Services Agency, Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation, and the IRS. STUDY From page 5A do so. At the UC for every 100 Black women who graduate, only 46 Black men do so. Slightly more men than women, across all ethnic groups (except Latinos), enroll in community colleges, where there is not a major gap in completion rates -- which are very low across the board for all students and have been in decline since 2006. Young men of all ethnic groups not only are performing worse than their female peers but also worse than their fathers before them in terms of actual degree attainment, according to the report. Among the generation older than 55 years of age, men have higher levels of educational attainment than women. This trend shifts among the younger generation--women of all races/ethnicities between 25and 34-years old are more likely than their male peers to have an associate degree or higher by an average of eight percentage points. “These disparities must be narrowed so that California’s young men have the skills necessary to participate in the workforce and contribute to a robust economy for the state’s future,” said Michele Siqueiros, Executive Director of the Campaign for College Opportunity.

SCAMS From page 5A of a scholarship program, you can contact the Better Business Bureau in the city where the scholarship service is located, or the FTC. 3. Be suspicious of banks that charge large upfront fees in exchange for low interest rate loans: Besides scholarships, other forms of financial aid generally come from the government in the form of grants or loans you receive in your financial aid package after filling out the FAFSA. If you plan to take out pri-

vate bank loans, make sure you deal with a trusted bank and understand any fees and interest charges you will incur. 4. Don’t send a deposit for an apartment before visiting in person: If you’re not planning to live in your college’s dorms, it can be a challenge to arrange housing for school – even more so when you live in a different state or country. Many international and out-of-state students will search for apartments online and might be tempted to send a deposit without actually seeing the place firsthand, especially if it seems to be an amazing deal. If you think you might be caught in a scam, your state department of consumer protection and state attorney general’s office are trusted institutions you can turn to. The National Consumer League’s Fraud Center will also investigate and advocate on your behalf. If you receive a strange email or phone call, write down the contact information of the organization contacting you and talk to an adviser at your school before you give out any financial or personal information. Don’t be afraid to report a scam if you think you might have been victimized. You might be able to help other students avoid falling into the same situation. RAMP From page 5A the most challenging backgrounds and circumstances become successful, productive and responsible adults,” said Tim Blaylock, chief professional officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. “These are young people who have lost their way but have great hope for the future; they just need a caring adult to help guide them down a new path to a better and brighter future.” Service clubs like the Lions, Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs are encouraged to help identify additional mentors for this important program.

BROWN From page 6A with the initiative approved by voters in 2008. A $24 billion proposal to build two massive tunnels for shipping water from Northern California to Southern California has drawn opposition from the delta region and conservationists. And his landmark sentencing overhaul to address a federal court order on prison reduction is giving fodder to Republicans who raise the specter of a rising crime rate. None of those concerns is likely to be enough to derail his path to re-election, though. Brown has proven to be politically adept, persuading voters in 2012 to approve Proposition 30, which temporarily raises the state sales tax and income taxes on the wealthy. The infusion of an extra $6 billion a year helped the balance the state budget and allowed him to score points with the public by giving more money to schools. He also had the good fortune to take office as the national economy was beginning to rebound and after voters approved an initiative allowing the state budget to pass with a majority vote in the Legislature rather than a two-thirds supermajority. With Brown’s fellow Democrats controlling the Legislature, the change ended the political gridlock faced by his predecessor, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. OBAMA From page 7A They cut the deal months ago, but the administration took some time to vet the nominees. The president formally submitted them to the Senate last month, but they were returned when Congress adjourned for the year. Obama resubmitted them on Monday. The package deal means all six nominees -- four of whom are GOP picks and two of whom are Democratic picks -can move forward. The White House appears to have gotten the short end of the stick, but at the least, it allows some Georgia nominees to move forward after years of going nowhere. A source familiar with the situation, who requested anonymity, said Democrats angry about the package arrangement were pushing to leave all six of the slots vacant instead of taking the deal, which was unacceptable to the White House. MACK From page 7A also known as “The Fat Man” and “JoJo,” pleaded guilty in December 2013 to two counts of extortion. Prosecutors accused them of trying to conceal their activities by avoiding meetings in City Hall, which is near the federal courthouse, and instead gathering at Giorgianni’s residence, his steak house and restaurants

in Atlantic City. Mack, 48, took office in 2010. He faced a stalled recall effort in 2011, and the City Council has since repeatedly failed in its efforts to cut his $126,000 annual salary by as much as half. HUDSON From page 7A detention and, since becoming involved, he has helped over 20,000 children develop the practical skills and techniques to overcome obstacles in life as illustrated through the best and most intellectual visual aid, the chessboard. After moving to the Atlanta area in 2001, Hudson launched “Be Someone”, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit foundation that uses numerous tools, including the game of chess, to promote selfesteem, responsibility, and analytical thinking to underprivileged youths. He has touched numerous young lives and has been relentless in his pursuit of reaching more young people and introducing them to the game that changed his life. His teaching methods are designed to share something positive to inner city kids where the focus is discipline and patience required by the game of chess. For more details about Orrin Hudson and his Be Someone organization, visit www.BeSomeone.org. ALEXANDER From page 7A Paying a $150,000 bond in November, Alexander was released and given home detention, according to station WAWS. “She continues to demonstrate her utter disregard for conforming her behavior to the rules ... [others] must abide by,” state prosecutors wrote in a motion filed. Her lawyers argued that the prosecution wants Alexander locked up again, even though the state’s attorneys were aware she obtained permission to run household errands, MSNBC said. MURPHY From page 7A Nelson police allegedly have video footage of Taylor at an adult novelty store, that was taken the same day Murphy disappeared, but the timing on the video is unclear. The shop, police said, is just two miles from the movie theater where Alexis Murphy’s car was found. Authorities ultimately searched Taylor’s Lovingston home, but whether they found anything related to the case remains unclear. The search warrant, as well as affidavits in the case, have been sealed. Hearings related to the case have also been closed under court order. FORECLOSURES From page 8A quite recovered to the level of around 86,000 that was seen in 2005 and 2006, before the housing bubble burst. And certain markets, like Florida, Delaware, Maryland and South Carolina, are still struggling with high rates of foreclosures. “While foreclosures will likely continue to stage a weak rally in certain markets next year as the last of the distress left over from the Great Recession is dealt with, it is highly unlikely that there will be a foreclosure comeback that poses any major threat to the solid housing recovery that has now taken hold,” said Blomquist.

Alicia Keys Out As BlackBerry's Aretha Wants to Cover Beyonce’s Song 'Creative Director'

Alicia Keys, we hardly knew ye as Blackberry's "creative director." The singer and the smartphone maker are parting ways after just one year. BlackBerry bestowed Keys with the creative director title in January 2013, at a big launch of the company's new BlackBerry 10 operating system. But on Thursday, the company said it had "completed our year-long collaboration" with Keys. BlackBerry (BBRY) declined to comment specifically as to why the relationship came to an end. Her stint officially wraps up on January 31. Lately it's become popular for tech companies to sign on celebrities as "creative directors," which some see as glorified spokespeople. Lady Gaga holds the position at Polaroid, while will.i.am holds that title at Intel (INTC, Fortune 500). In addition to the BlackBerry 10 launch, Keys also backed company initiatives including the "Keep Moving Project," in which the singer invited fans to send photos of themselves to be used in one of her

Alicia Keys and former BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins one year ago, during happier times. music videos. BlackBerry also highlighted Keys' work with the BlackBerry Scholars Program, a scholarship for women studying science, technology, engineering and math. But Keys made few public appearances beyond those initiatives, and the struggling BlackBerry got into even more trouble as the year wore on. BlackBerry 10 phones sold poorly, and the company was forced to take a nearly $1 billion writedown on unsold devices in September. That same month, the company announced it would cut 4,500 jobs -- or 40% of its work-

force -- and that it would seek a buyer to take it private. But in November BlackBerry abandoned its plans to sell the company and ousted CEO Thorsten Heins. With such serious issues at hand, BlackBerry seemed to have little need for a celebrity creative director. Keys herself landed in hot water after sending a tweet from an iPhone (AAPL, Fortune 500) instead of a BlackBerry just days after her appointment to creative director; she later said her account was hacked.

Sasheer Zamata Joins 'SNL' Cast Amid Controversy Over Black Women

By Ross Luippold "Saturday Night Live" will add Sasheer Zamata to its cast this month, according to a spokesperson for the show. Deadline first broke the news that Zamata will join the cast after months of press surrounding the lack of black women on the NBC sketch program. Zamata comes to "SNL" from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, the comedy collective co-founded by "SNL" alum Amy Poehler that has served as a training ground for many young comedy stars. "SNL" currently has no black women in the cast, a fact that received criticism from the press as well as within its own cast. After Kenan Thompson vowed to no longer portray black

Sasheer Zamata women in drag, many questioned whether the show would indeed add a black woman in order to portray celebrities such as Beyonce and First Lady Michelle Obama. (Only four black women have been in the "SNL" cast after nearly 40 years.) In a break with the tight-

lipped secrecy typical for "SNL" casting decisions, word broke that the show's producers were indeed auditioning black women for a mid-season addition. They also addressed the situation in the opening of an episode hosted by Kerry Washington this year, in which Washington was expected to portray several black female celebrities since nobody in the cast could do so. Like many of the new cast members, Zamata has been tirelessly writing and acting in live and online comedy that has been written up in a variety of sources. Her work has attracted the attention of celebrities such as Lena Dunham, who tweeted one of her sketches last month.

Armond White Says He Didn't Heckle Steve McQueen

By Jake Coyle NEW YORK — Hollywood’s award season, never known for civility, is roiling from a heckling incident between “12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen and film critic Armond White. At the New York Film Critics Circle Awards on Monday night, White allegedly jeered McQueen as “an embarrassing doorman and garbage man” while he was presented the best director award by Harry Belafonte. McQueen dismissed the outburst, apparently not bothered by it. In an email to “12 Years a Slave” distributor Fox Searchlight, NYFCC chairman Joshua Rothkopf apologized to Fox Searchlight and McQueen for “the crass bit of heckling.” In the letter, first posted online by Deadline

Steve McQueen Hollywood, Rothkopf said he was “mortified” that it came from one of the group’s own members and pledged “disciplinary action.” White, an editor for CityArts, is known for his contrarian film reviews. He panned “12 Years a

Slave” as “torture porn.” In response to questions by email, White disputed reports about his awardsnight behavior but declined to explain what he said of McQueen. “The barrage of lies, misreporting, unsubstantiated sources and madeup quotes is dismaying,” White said. “The awards themselves, and the highlights of the evening, such as James Toback and Peter Bogdanovich’s praise for best-picture winner ‘American Hustle,’ have been forgotten in the melee.” Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is one of the most prestigious critics groups in the country, made up of 38 New York-area critics. White has previously served as chairman.

Aretha Franklin is the Queen of Soul but apparently Beyonce’s fans don’t care. Beyonce’s loyal — and cutthroat! — fan base recently went in on Twitter after the “Respect” singer announced plans to remake “Bootylicious” on an upcoming cover album. “It’s a concept CD,” Franklin told Billboard. “They’re records that, musically, I respected and that I liked a lot and that I would love to have one go-’round with. I aspire for musical excellence. I have very high standards where music is concerned, and I’m looking for something I haven’t done, something that you haven’t heard and something

Aretha Franklin just absolutely smashing.” the 71-year-old songstress Along with prospective added, “I’m even thinking songs like Barbra Strei- of ‘Bootylicious,’” a track sand’s “People” and Donna penned by Beyonce and perSummer’s “Last Dance,” formed by Destiny’s Child.

Jennifer Hudson did something really awesome for her assistant this Christmas, and her assistant responded in an equally awesome fashion. On Dec. 31, Hudson uploaded a video to her Instagram account that showed the moment her assistant, Walter Williams, found out she was buying him a house for Christmas. Hudson and Williams met as kids while attending Yale Elementary School in Chicago, according to E! News. They've been through it all together. After high school, he

Jennifer Hudson became her manager and tried to get her noticed by entering her in talent competitions at gay clubs, Wil-

liams told Entertainment Weekly back in 2009. He stuck with her through her "American Idol" auditions, even after she only placed seventh in the competition. ''I promised her that I wouldn't stop until the whole world saw her,'' he said. Despite all the fame, she hasn't changed. ''You know, out of all this, all the press and the accolades, she has remained true to herself. She's still the same sweet girl I met in grammar school. She's still Jennifer.'' In 2011, Hudson told the Advocate she considers Williams her closest friend.

Rick Ross Sues LMFAO Over Lyric in 'Party Rock Anthem'

Rick Ross Rick Ross and LMFAO can't both be shufflin', according to a new lawsuit. Ross is suing the electronic-rap duo, claiming they lifted the line "Everyday I'm shufflin'" for their 2010 hit, "Party Rock Anthem." Ross used the lyric first -- except his was "Everyday I'm hustlin'" -- in the 2006 song "Hustlin,'" which appeared on the rapper's debut album, "Port of Miami." The Hollywood Reporter obtained a copy of the lawsuit, which claims, "The use of 'Hustlin' in 'Party Rock Anthem' is readily apparent, despite the slight change from 'Everyday I’m hustlin'' … to 'Everyday I'm shufflin'' … and constitutes, inter alia, the creation of an unauthorized derivative work." Ross is accusing LMFAO, which includes Stefan Kendal Gordy (Redfoo) and Skyler Austen Gordy (Sky Blu), of "perform[ing] in a manner to sound like" his own track. The rapper is seeking an injunction and maximum statutory damages, according to THR. "Party Rock Anthem" reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it re-

The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the 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: 2-6-14 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E. Vineyard Ave., Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Justice Center. 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/Robert S. Waldo (CSB #39922) ROBERT S. WALDO, A LAW CORPORATION P. O.

Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to the return of the deposit paid.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (866) 684-2727 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.LPSASAP.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 2720008151-F00. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

The Petition for Probate requests that STEFFEN MEVIK be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

(This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: February 19, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E. Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Oxnard Courthouse.

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.

NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE TS No. 120069145 Title Order No. 12-0122122 APN No. 632-0-261-025 YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST, DATED 01/12/2006. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by ANTHONY FIGUEROA A MARRIED MAN, dated 01/12/2006 and recorded 1/20/2006, as Instrument No. 20060120-0012732, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Ventura County, State of California, will sell on 01/30/2014 at 9:00AM, Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor Resort 1050 Schooner Drive, Ventura, CA 93001 Grand Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1621 SPENCE STREET, SIMI VALLEY, CA, 93065. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $578,440.35. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ‘’AS IS’’ condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy

to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www. recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case 12-0069145. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. 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.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by MATTHEW A. LINN AND KARA MARUOKALINN, HUSBAND AND WIFE, dated 09/18/2006 and recorded 9/22/2006, as Instrument No. 20060922-00200342-0, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Ventura County, State of California, will sell on 02/13/2014 at 9:00AM, Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor Resort 1050 Schooner Drive, Ventura, CA 93001 Grand Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1037 MCHUGH COURT, VENTURA, CA, 93003. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $449,784.01. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL

BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www. recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case 13-0009187. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF ELISABETH M. COLEMAN CASE NO. 56-201300446068-PR-LA-OXN

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of ELISABETH M. COLEMAN. A Petition for Probate has

Tri-County Sentry TENANT From page 8A TransUnion. Lenders, Creditors, Landlords and a myriad of other interested parties periodically report their debtors’ credit-related activity, such as new loans, account balances, payments (including late ones), defaults, judgments, etc. The agencies maintain files on every person who uses credit of any kind. Evictions This is a deal breaker every time. If a landlord had to forcibly remove a renter from the property, it was probably for non-payment of rent. If the eviction is for another reason, it could be for criminal activity or repeatedly disturbing the peace, offenses often worse than nonpayment. Criminal Background You can bet that if the prospect has a criminal past, he or she isn’t going to admit it, unless the offenses are minor. Here is where you find out whether this person is even the right owner of the information. Identity theft, posing as someone else, is a real possibility these days.

Why? Over 75 percent of HR respondents cited a “lack of relevant experience” among candidates, and 50 percent reported that it was simply difficult to hire “established professionals.” Candidates had their own ideas about why they were not getting hired, which differed somewhat across the generations. Among the responses, Gen X job seekers blamed a “weak economy” (62 percent) for their lack of employment, the Millennial Generation cited their “lack of work experience” (55 percent) and Baby Boomers felt “age discrimination” (64 percent) was why they didn’t get the job. Putting generations aside, the majority of all respondents (52 percent) agreed that the weak economy was the overriding reason for their unemployment. It remains to be seen what the new year has in store for the unemployed, but one thing seems certain -- finding work will take some work. BLACK From page 8A American community.

MEDITATION From page 9A and different meditation programs approach this in different ways.” The type that looked most promising -- mindful meditation -- emphasizes acceptance of feelings and thoughts without judgment and relaxation of body and mind. It’s typically practiced 30 to 40 minutes a day. However, popular mantrabased meditation (including Transcendental Meditation) did not show any benefit over placebo, and it appeared no better than any other active treatments on any measures, he said. The analysis included 3,515 participants, many of whom received about 30 to 40 hours of training in mindful meditation. RETIREMENT From page 9A • If you are covered by an employer plan and are single/ head of household, the tax deduction phases out for AGI between $60,000 and $70,000 (up from $59,000 to $69,000 in 2013); if married and filing jointly, the phase-out range is $96,000 to $116,000 (up from $95,000 to $115,000).

Consult IRS Form 8880 for more information. FOX From page 11A of the so-called ‘knockout game,’” the report explained. “Fox described the knockout game as a violent and spreading trend primarily involving black youths assaulting unsuspecting and primarily white victims on the street for recreation. The network has run numerous segments on the alleged craze, and Fox’s Greta Van Susteren has dedicated a recurring segment to the phenomenon. “The primary take-away for viewers: Be afraid of young, black men and women, and don’t let yourself be an unsuspecting victim – black people could assault you at any time for no reason other than the fact that you’re white.” In fact, as the report states, “A New York Times piece on the knockout game cited police officials in several cities where attacks have been reported who concluded that the game ‘amounted to little more than an urban myth, and that the attacks in question might be nothing more than the sort of random assaults that have always occurred.’” Fox even played the race card with Santa Claus. “Fox capped a year decorated with race-baiting overtones and racial dog whistles with a comparably absurd ornament for the top of their tree: New Fox megastar Megyn Kelly’s unabashed declaration (“for the kids at home”) that Santa Claus is white,” MediaMatters recounted. “‘Santa just is white,’” Kelly told viewers in response to a Slate column by Aisha Harris, an African-American who noted that depictions of a Caucasian Santa Claus can have an alienating effect on minority children. Conservative media rushed to agree with Kelly’s assertion, most notably Fox race-baiterin-chief Bill O’Reilly, who concurred that ‘Miss Kelly is correct. Santa was a white person.’” The report stated, “Sadly, the Santa story illustrated how harmful race-baiting media coverage can be. Amidst the back and forth over the race of Old St. Nick, a teacher at Cleveland High School in New Mexico reportedly told a black student that he should not be dressed up as Santa because he was the wrong skin color…” George E.

CONSERVATIVES From page 11A in the fact that nearly two-thirds of White evangelical Protestants – a group that overwhelmingly votes Republican – believes in creationism. Just 27 percent express a belief in evolution. The Pew study found that by significant majorities Catholics, mainline Protestants, and those who identified themselves as religious but unaffiliated express a belief in evolution. However, it also found that 50 percent of Black Protestants believe in creationism, too. I’ll come back to this finding in a moment. Following the Pew survey’s release, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank rhetorically asked whether the GOP’s “big tent [has] evolved into a house of worship” and suggested the findings indicate the GOP itself has increasingly become “a narrow group of conservatives who believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible – or partisans who regard evolution as a political question rather than science.” It’s that latter remark that offers a crucial insight. The GOP’s political leadership and operatives, sitting atop a party that is overwhelmingly White and becoming even more so, have become increasingly dependent

WISCONSIN From page 11A the “books”. As typical public schools are closing and/or consolidating, charter school expansion is there to fill the void. Now the state has come up with another version of a charter school. That is a 2R Charter School. They are identical to a regular charter school except their authorizers can be the city of Milwaukee, University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, University of Wisconsin – Parkside or the Milwaukee area technical college district board. Wait, they also have one more version of a charter school. There is the Virtual Charter School. “Virtual charter schools are publicly funded, nonsectarian schools that are exempt from many regulations that apply to traditional public schools and that offer some of their classes online. They began operating in Wisconsin during the 20023 school year. Pupils typically attend from their homes and communicate with teachers using e-mail, by telephone, or in online discussions. During the 2010-11 school year, 17 virtual charter schools enrolled 4,110 pupils. Most were high schools. Currently there are 25 virtual charter schools.” It is very apparent that the state of Wisconsin has developed a model program for many other states that have urban centers that could use improvement and innovation towards the better product it is putting out through their school system. One thing is clear – there is no room for street gangs, drugs and general violence in a charter school system. It makes a school a place for learning and achievement plus preparation for the future. Oh, if Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago and many other cities with challenging school systems would try to emulate this successful program. It could make a wonderful change. What are we waiting for? We are talking about our children’s future. Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce®. Website: www.nationalbcc.org. Email: halford@nationalbcc. org.

We’re Champions for Change

on the religious fundamentalist group – White evangelical Protestants – in their midst. That’s why, as Milbank writes, the “Republican Party is achieving the seemingly impossible feat of becoming even more theological.” That un-American development – the injection of an explicit religious creed into the political mainstream – is the opposite of how the 50 percent of Black Protestants who also believe in creationism have behaved. In sharp contrast, they’ve not tried to push their particular theological beliefs into the political realm. Instead, they, along with Black Americans and other Americans, have hewed to one of the pillars of the American political tradition: the separation of church and state. That’s a conservative principle today’s conservative movement would do well to follow. Lee A. Daniels is a longtime journalist based in New York City. His latest book is Last Chance: The Political Threat to Black America. RESPECT From page 11A of what took the life of Zainee Hailey in Newark you must first acknowledge the message we have sent to young people. We don’t care if they are living in decent housing or have a place to call home. We herd them in school buildings that reek of indifference and then label them failures when we fail to live up to our moral and legal obligation to provide a quality education. Young people are easy prey for the drug trade when the adults in their lives are permanently severed from economic opportunity. And when our youth are pushed out of school and pushed into the underground and illegal economy, they become prey for an increasingly corporate criminal justice system driven by profit and little concerned with justice or rehabilitation. Respect? There is none shown young people so our youth will claim it by any means necessary. Elected officials can call for all the police city and state budgets can muster and it will not matter. Preachers can evoke scripture and shout from their pulpits and it will not matter. Hell, at this point the tears of victims’ families don’t even matter much. It seems to me that unless we fundamentally alter our relationship with young people, make children and teenagers our priority, we stand little chance at stopping the bloodshed in our communities. Our only hope is in a radical restructuring of how we engage children from early childhood to young adulthood, and how we simultaneously support families and reform institutions that exist in theory to facilitate the transition to adult life.
