Don’t Get Scammed by Utility Impostors

Customers across the nation are being targeted by scammers who are demanding immediate payment on past due utility bills. Approximately 1,500 Southern California Edison (SCE) customers received fraudulent calls this year, resulting in more than 200 customers falling victim to the scam. According to SCE’s Consumer Affairs Manager Marlyn Denter, it is important for customers to be alert and aware when they receive calls from individuals demanding money for payment. “SCE will never call a customer to collect or demand money for past due bills,” said Denter. “We are not in the business of threatening our customers with the termination of service.” One of SCE’s customers recently avoided becoming a victim when a man named “Luis” called claiming he worked for SCE and demanded payment on a late bill with a prepaid debit card. “This guy ‘Luis’ was really good,” said the business owner. “He never broke away from his story and sounded like he knew what he was talking about. I pushed on him real hard saying this wasn’t SCE’s procedure. He never raised his voice and just said, ‘We’re sorry, sir, this is our new policy.’” To stall time, the customer told the imposter that it would take approximately two hours to purchase a prepaid debit card and remit payment. In the meantime, the customer’s spouse reported the call to SCE. A customer service representative confirmed that “Luis” was not an SCE employee and the customer did not have a past due bill. “Luis” called two hours later demanding the money and threatened to shut off the power if payment was not made. The customer knew “Luis” was a fraud and confidently told him to disconnect his power. Nothing was shut off. This business owner was fortunate. Others have not been so lucky. A customer in Rialto recently paid $3,000 in an attempt not to have the power disconnected, only to learn it was a scam. Customer losses average between $800 and $1,000. “We want our customers to know that they can always call us if they have questions about their bill because we are here to help and we don’t want them to become victims of this scam,” expressed Denter. Denter continued to emphasize that there are ways for customers to protect themselves. The following are tips to help customers protect themselves from these scam artists: • Ask for the person’s name, call back number, a supervisor’s name, how much money they are requesting, and the method of payment. • Check the area code of the number you are getting a call from. If it is not an 800 number, the call is fraudulent. • Call SCE directly at 800-655-4555 to ask about your bill. • Contact local authorities if you suspect the phone call is fraudulent. Advertorial

By James Carter California Black Media Contributor Sacramento, CA-- In the wake of grim statistics and reports highlighting disparate outcomes for young African-American men and an attorney general’s report underscoring the link between elementary school truancy and crime, The California Endowment announced it will commit $50 million over the next seven years to help improve the health and educational outcomes for young boys and men of color. Martin Ludlow, a spokesperson for The California Endowment, said the sizable investment is intended to act as a catalyst to convince other organizations to engage in efforts to reverse the educational, social and health trends for this most at-risk group. “We believe now is the

time to take action by investing in our sons and brothers of color because that is the demographic group that performs lowest across socioeconomic categories,” Ludlow said. “The investment is extraordinary, but alone it is not enough to get the job done. It is more of a call to action to other organizations we are hoping heed that call.” Under the name “Sons & Brothers Across California,” The Endowment campaign has enlisted the assistance of political and ENDOWMENT, See page 3A

Around the Tri-Counties The Blessed Life - Part Three…What is it? Faith Community Pledges Environmental Stewardship How do you get it? Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan Continuation from last week: In order to prosper, you must first have a prosperous soul. That’s the beginning of the prosperous life. But how do you get there? Once you find a promise in the Word, don’t disqualify yourself from receiving by saying, “God would never do that for me.” Be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2). Let God’s Word change your thinking. You will prosper in any area as your soul [mind, will and emotions] prospers in

understanding about that area from the Word, and you take that knowledge and act on it. Your inner man prospers when you believe the Word. Your circumstances prosper when you receive what He says and act on it. Be faithful to keep meditating on the promises in the Word until they overtake your life. Everything you receive from God starts with the Word in your heart. Proverbs 4:20-23 says, “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” (Proverbs 28:20). 3)Tithing and Sowing “Honor the Lord with your capital and sufficiency. And with the first fruits of all your income; so shall your Paid Advertisement

storage places be filled with plenty, and your vats shall be overflowing with new wine” (Proverbs 3:9-10, The Amplified Bible). I never had any financial growth until I became faithful in tithing. At first it looked impossible to give that 10 percent. But when I did, the 90 percent I had left went further than the 100 percent I had before. Tithing is a covenant transaction that gets God involved in what you are doing. The first 10 percent of your income—the tithe—belongs to God. The Bible calls it firstfruits. It’s devoted to God, and it goes to support ministries that feed you spiritually.Tithing is how you honor God with your money. It makes a way for God to bless you supernaturally. Whatever we do must be in obedience and in faith for God to be pleased with it. II Corinthians 9:6 says: LIFE, See page 12A

By Lyz Hoffman They are committed to God, and now they are committed to combating climate change, too. Leaders from different corners of Santa Barbara’s faith community gathered at the Unitarian Society to sign a pledge saying they would work to reduce the carbon footprint of their individual houses of worship. The event was put on by ECOFaith, a collaboration of various religious groups in the area that formed in 2008 after Reverend Wallace Shepherd of Second Baptist Church spoke with Congresswoman Lois Capps about aligning religious principles with environmental stewardship. Shepherd and the other founding members of the group — Imam Yama Niazi of the Islamic Society, John Reed of Holy Cross Church, and Dr. Ivor John, the organization’s chair — talked about spreading the “green” message not only to their congregations but also to government officials. “We’re waking the mind up of people as to why the environment is important,” Shepherd said. “The word of God says that we should be good stewards over the

environment and take care of everything around us.” Shepherd noted that his church has swapped out its light fixtures for more earth-friendly ones and provides each new member of the church with three energy-saving light bulbs. The project has shown his church, he said, that such small changes can reap big rewards for the earth and for wallets. “It has made a difference in the AfricanAmerican community, and it is going to make a differ-

ence all over the world,” Shepherd said. “It starts in the head.” State Senator HannahBeth Jackson also spoke at the event, sharing her support of the pledge. “We are responsible,” she said, citing a report from Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that deemed human activity the top cause of global warming. “The future is in our hands. It is what we will be passing on to the next generation.”

During the month of September, 1300 people, many of whom started lining up as early as three in the morning, received absolutely free dental treatments. For the eighth year in a row California Dental Group has made a very positive difference in the community by hosting Free Emergency Dental Treatment Days as part of their growing annual effort to serve those who don’t have the money to go to the dentist. Everything from fillings, root canals, extractions, toothache treatments, cleaning of infected gums and more were provided, at absolutely no cost, to as many people as possible between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., on a first come, first serve basis. Realizing that many people are struggling in the current economy, California Dental Group wants to give people, who couldn’t otherwise afford it, an opportunity to take care of dental problems before they become more serious, and more costly. California Dental Group sees hundreds of patients per month. Yet, according to Dr. Kamran Sahabi, owner of California Dental

Group, “We see an amazing number of people who need treatment and can’t afford it. We come across this every day. So I decided that we needed to address this serious health issue.” Each of California Dental Group’s seven locations, Glendale, Los Angeles, North Hollywood, Oxnard, Upland, Tustin and Whittier, now devotes at least one day per year to providing free dental care to the community. Dr. Sahabi considers the cost of the giveaway in staff time and supplies as “not really important.” “What is important is that people understand the two main problems in dental care — tooth decay and gum dis-

ease — and that they are both preventable with good hygiene and regular visits to the dentist. It makes us feel great to be able to provide these Free Emergency Dental Care Days to the community. People start lining up early in the morning; the more we’re able to help, the better!” California Dental Group has been serving Southern California for over 21 years and is a recognized leader in all aspects of dental services including family dentistry, dental implants, orthodontics, and all cosmetic dentistry procedures. California Dental Group is accredited with the American DENTAL, See page 12A

Sports News Tiger Woods Voted PGA Tour Calvin Johnson 'Can't Stand' Player of the Year for 11th Time Chicago Bears

By Doug Ferguson PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Tiger Woods was voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time on the strength of his five big wins and return to No. 1 in the world. It was the third time Woods won the Jack Nicklaus Award despite not winning a major. He made up for that with two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship among his five wins. No one else won more than twice this year, and Woods won the Vardon Trophy for lowest scoring average and the PGA Tour money title. "It's been an incredible year to have won five times, two of those World Golf Championships and one Players," Woods said on a conference call. "It's been just a fantastic year all around. It's also an incredible feeling to be voted by your peers, and to have that type of respect is something that's very humbling." The PGA Tour does not release the percentage of votes won or even who finished second. Jordan Spieth was voted rookie of the year in a race that likely was no contest. The 20-year-old Texan began the year with no status

Tiger Woods on any tour. He won the John Deere Classic, lost in a playoff at another event, reached the Tour Championship, was chosen for the Presidents Cup team and wound up 10th on the money list with nearly $4 million. He will be the youngest American – and first PGA Tour rookie – to play in the Presidents Cup in Ohio. "I don't know if it's a `pinch me' moment yet," Spieth said. "I think my mind is still really on next week." Woods was on the ballot with British Open champion Phil Mickel-

son, Masters champion Adam Scott, FedEx Cup champion Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar. Mickelson also won the Phoenix Open and was runner-up in the U.S. Open for the sixth time. Along with his first major, Scott won The Barclays. If either of them had won the Tour Championship, three wins and a major might have won some votes over five big wins and no majors. It was the first time since 2009, right before his personal life unraveled, that Woods won these awards.

Kenny Guiton Headed Back to Ohio State Bench

By Dave Miller While it appears that Ohio State quarterback Kenny Guiton will be

headed back to the sideline with Braxton Miller cleared by doctors to return to the starting lineup

Kenny Guiton against Wisconsin at Ohio Stadium, the backup signal-caller's future could still be very bright. Guiton, who started the past two weeks and played nearly three full games on the season while Miller nursed a sprained knee, has been very impressive during his time in the spotlight, completing 68.4 percent of his passes for 664 yards and 13 touchdowns against two interceptions. The redshirt senior earned back-to-back Big Ten offensive player of the week honors, and he arguably solidified himself as the best backup quarterback in the country. And some NFL scouts have taken notice. Guiton has a real good chance of following the path of former USC quarterback Matt Cassel, who was a career backup with the Trojans before impressing scouts at his Pro Day, getting drafted by the New England Patriots in the 7th round of the 2005 NFL Draft and eventually signing a big contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.

By Anne-Marie Garcia and Peter Orsi HAVANA — Could a new wave of Cuban baseball players be headed for the major leagues without having to defect from the communist island? Cuba announced Friday that athletes from all sports will soon be able to sign contracts with foreign leagues, a break with a decades-old policy that held pro sports to be anathema to socialist ideals. It's a step toward the day when the road from Havana to Yankee Stadium might mean simply hopping on a plane rather than attempting a perilous sea crossing or sneaking out of a hotel at midnight in a strange land. But American baseball fans shouldn't throw their Dodgers or Rockies caps in the air in celebration just yet. The Cold War-era embargo against Cuba means it may not happen anytime soon. If it does come to pass, it could increase – astronomically, in some cases – the amount of money Cuban

Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) issued the following statement regarding the Pigford II settlement disbursements African American farmers began receiving this week from the United States Department of Agriculture: “The blatant and systematic discrimination the African American farmers involved in the Pigford I and II settlements endured at the hands of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is reprehensible and I am pleased that the claimants are finally getting the justice they deserve,” said Congresswoman Barbara Lee. “I will continue to fight to ensure that all Americans have equal access to federal government assistance, loans and contracting opportunities to continue to build our nation’s economy

from the middle-out.” The Pigford I and II class action lawsuits were filed to address the history of racial discrimination by the Department of Agriculture. Between 1983 and 1997, thousands of African American famers were denied loans solely because of their race. In May 2008, as part of the 2008 Farm Bill, Con-

gress passed legislation appropriating $100 million for compensation for Pigford II claimants. As the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus from 2009 to 2010, Congresswoman Barbara Lee fought vigorously on behalf of the Pigford I and II claimants to advance legislation which appropriated an additional $1.15 billion for these claims, bringing the total available compensation to $1.25 billion. On December 8, 2010, President Barack Obama signed this legislation into law. This week African American farmers began receiving settlement disbursements from the United States Department of Agriculture. To date, 149 claims in California have been approved, totaling $7,450,000 in economic impact.

Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson about how to proceed. If a majority of mobile home park residents do not support a sale, Senate Bill 510 allows – but does not require – a local government to disapprove of the conversion. “I am thrilled that this bill has been signed into law,” Jackson said. “This will give local governments the much-needed clarity in the law they’ve been asking for, so that

costly lawsuits will be prevented. Mobile homes are also a source of affordable home ownership, and this will give residents an important way to have a voice in the process when their parks are being subdivided and sold.” Ventura County Supervisor Steve Bennett said: “The approval of Senator Jackson’s SB 510 provides a tremendous relief for both mobile homeowners and local governments. Local governments and their taxpayers will no longer have to face costly litigation over unwanted subdivisions of mobile home parks. This bill protects affordable housing, protects local governments and taxpayers, and brings closure to many years of litigation over this issue.” “This is a great victory for low-income homeowners who have been fighting to ensure that their voice is heard when local governments are considering JACKSON, See page 12A

SACRAMENTO – Governor Jerry Brown has just signed a bill by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) to prevent lawsuits and give mobile home residents a voice when their mobile home park is being subdivided and sold.

This is commonly referred to as a “condo conversion.” But without clarity in current law, condo conversions have commonly left mobile home park residents without a say in the process and cities confused

Speaker Pérez Marks the School Year with School Supply Donations

LOS ANGELES – Speaker John A. Pérez (DLos Angeles) got a headstart on the new school year on September 23 with UCLA Chancellor Gene Block, 200 UCLA student volunteers and the K to College Executive Director Benito Delgado-Olson joined together last week to beautify Leo Politi Elementary School and dispense of over $53,000 worth of school supplies to children in the MacArthur Park, Pico Union and Westlake areas to help them prepare for the coming school year. The event was a partnership among Speaker Pérez, K to College and UCLA’s Volunteer Day program and stands as part of a larger school supply and volunteer activism effort throughout Southern California. “Today’s giveaway is about more than just making sure our kids have the best possible start to the school year—although that is certainly a very important goal,” Speaker Pérez said.

Speaker John A. Pérez “Today is about celebrating and honoring our community. Every single one of us will benefit by making sure that students have a quality, decent education—by making sure they have the tools they need to do their work, and that they have a school that they can be proud of. And each of us—dedicated teachers, hardworking parents, and every member of the community—must be invested in making sure these students get the support they need to envision excellence and exceed expectations.”

National News Letitia James Wins Democratic Runoff Former Detroit Mayor Should be Jailed for New York City Public Advocate for Decades, According to Prosecutors

By Colby Hamilton Brooklyn Councilwoman Letitia James won the primary election runoff for public advocate, beating her opponent State Senator Daniel Squadron by 20 points, and making her all but certain to become the first woman of color elected to citywide office in New York City in November. An emotional James thanked her supporters at her victory party at the Copacabana, crediting them with her success in the protracted, and increasingly negative, campaign. “I ran for Public Advocate because, all of my life, I have seen New Yorkers preserver,” she said, surrounded by current and former colleagues in the city council. “I have

By Layla Garms The African American man who said that he and his family were called the n-word by a white woman at the Winston Lake Family YMCA has cancelled his Y membership. Kenneth Boston said the July 28 incident and what he calls Winston Lake Y officials’ lackluster response to it have negatively impacted his family. The 52-year-old father of seven said he and three of his children were subjected to racial epithets while exercising on the Y’s indoor track. Boston said he immediately reported the actions of the woman, another Winston Lake Y member whom Boston says repeatedly used the n-word to re-

fer to him and his 16-yearold autistic twin boys. He is not satisfied with the Y’s response to the incident. He believes the woman’s actions warranted an immediate cancellation of her

membership, but that has not happened. Winston Lake Branch Director Terry Matthews told The Chronicle last month that both Boston – who admits to telling a staffer after the incident that he “should’ve thrown that white woman over the rail –” and the other member had been reminded of the YMCA’s Code of Conduct (a claim Boston denies) and that the issue had been resolved. The branch subsequently posted the Code of Conduct in several areas of the facility. It states, in part, that the YMCA “insists that individuals using this facility demonstrate caring, responsible, respectful and YMCA, See page 12A

By Tyler Kingkade A group of conservative students at the University of Texas at Austin held a bake sale on campus charging different prices for brownies based on the customer's race. The group said it wanted to show why affirmative action is a terrible policy. The affirmative action bake sale, held Sept. 25, was sponsored by the UT chapter of the Young Conservatives of Texas. Lorenzo Garcia, the group's president, said he wanted to demonstrate that affirmative action is "demeaning to minorities" and creates "reverse discrimination." White people were charged the most for bake sale brownies, and Native Americans were charged the least. Gregory J. Vincent, the university vice president for diversity and community engagement, called

the bake sale "inflammatory and demeaning," as well as "deplorable." "The choice of a tiered pricing structure creates the misperception that some students either do not belong at the university or do not deserve to have access to our institution -- or worse, that they belong or deserve only to a certain degree," Vincent said in a statement. "Nothing could be further from the truth." Pavel Nitchovski, a columnist at The Horn, a local newspaper that covers UT Austin, said the bake sale "was so hopelessly, so tragically stupid that it left me in that delirious state between laughter and tears reserved exclusively for those moments when you remember that your car’s windows are down during a rainstorm.” "What’s so sad about this whole bake sale (aside TEXAS, See page 12A

The sentencing memos, authored by four assistant U.S. attorneys for Michigan’s Eastern District, said Ferguson should be sentenced to 14 to 28 years, while Kilpatrick should spend “at least” 28 years in prison for what prosecutors called his “widespread and corrosive breach of trust” during his six years in office.

DOJ to Sue North Carolina Over Voter ID Law

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration will sue the state of North Carolina in an effort to block an array of voting restrictions passed by Republican officials this year, a source briefed on the Justice Department's plans told The Huffington Post. The lawsuit, which will be filed on Monday and announced at a press conference featuring Attorney General Eric Holder, challenges four provisions of the voting law, known as House Bill 589 and signed by North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) last month. Voter advocates have criticized the law as one of the most restrictive voting

Attorney General Eric Holder measures passed since the civil rights era. In addition to challenging the law's strict photo ID provisions, the lawsuit will seek to stop North Carolina from eliminating seven days of early voting,

nixing same-day voter registration during the early voting period and prohibiting the counting of provisional ballots that are cast in the right county but the wrong precinct. DOJ will also ask a federal judge to force the state to seek permission from the Justice Department or in federal court to make changes to its voting laws and procedures, using the bail-in process under Section 3 of the Voting Rights Act. North Carolina had been required to have changes to its voting laws pre-cleared under a separate section of the Voting Rights Act until a Supreme Court decision in June.

Payday Loans Still a Deliberate Debt Trap

By Charlene Crowell Payday loans – the small loans that come with big fees and triple-digit annual interest rates – pose serious threats to the financial wellbeing of borrowers. That was the conclusion reached by the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL). “Whether they receive the loans online, in storefronts or through banks, the vast majority of borrowers cannot both repay the loan and cover all their basic living expenses until their next payday,” states the report. “Payday loans create a debt treadmill that makes struggling families worse off than they were before they received a payday loan.” The newest chapters of CRL’s research series, The State of Lending in America, covering payday loans find these products continue to create a cycle of debt in which borrowers take out a loan, ostensibly pay it back, and then run out of money and have to take out numerous additional loans to afford their living expenses. In fact, even though payday loans are marketed as a convenient way to handle unexpected emergencies, the vast majority of borrowers use the loans for everyday expenses. Borrowers across the country pay more than $3.4 billion in fees. Further, more than two-thirds of these fees – at least $2.6 billion – are the direct re-

sult of payday loan “churning” or rapid and successive re-borrowing. Any of five factors can create borrower problems and can lead to payday lending’s debt treadmill: • Lack of underwriting for affordability – the lending model relies on borrowers’ inability to afford their loans; • High fees – often at an annual percentage rates of 400 percent or more; • Short-term due dates – usually a borrower’s next payday, generally around two weeks; • Single, balloon payment – the entire principal and related fees are due at the same time; and • Collateral in the form of a post-dated check or access to a bank account – the lender is first in line to be repaid, leaving many borrowers short of funds for living expenses.

er-focused reforms, 22 states, including the District of Columbia have enacted laws to curb or eliminate payday’s debt trap. In recent years, states with varying locales and demographics have rejected payday lending’s triple digit rates and imposed rate caps: Arizona, Montana, and Ohio. In 2006, enactment of the Military Lending Act created a 36 percent rate limit and prohibited the holding of a post-dated check from active-duty military and their families. Now, more paydayrelated developments are occurring at the federal level. Two regulators, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller, are developing guidance to crack down on payday lending by the banks they supervise. Additionally, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently issued a comprehensive report that reviewed more than 15 million accounts. CFPB is considering rules to address its own finding that the typical borrower is indebted for nearly 200 days in a year. Even so, today 29 states still have no substantive restriction on payday lending. Payday lenders in just 10 states collect 83 percent of all fees.

SBDC director Ray Bowman director Ray Bowman, the model uses banks’ risk analysis databases and comparative industry data. This information, historically difficult for businesses to access, enables them to see how banks view them as a loan candidate, and how they compare to their local competitors in the same industry. “It’s a comprehensive and easy-to-understand way for SBDC clients to identify pertinent information in their financial statements and use it to develop strategies to reach their long-range benchmark goals,” said Bowman. SBDC advisors and their clients input the financial data into the program, including key indicators of a company’s health, such as sales revenue, inventory costs, number of employees, etc. Data points are presented as separate line items, so businesses easily can see where they are excelling or falling short for long-term viability.

Lower Income?

Don’t Pass Up the Saver’s Credit

By Jason Alderman

In 2002, Congress passed legislation to create an income tax credit designed to encourage lower- and middle-income people to save money for retirement. The saver's credit, worth up to $1,000 a year for individuals ($2,000 for couples filing jointly), rewards people for contributing to an IRA or 401(k) plan. Regrettably, the people most likely to benefit from the saver's credit are also those who can usually least afford to set aside money for retirement. It doesn't help that only one-quarter of people earning less than $50,000 even know the credit exists. But if you can squeeze a few dollars out of your budget, the saver's credit is worth pursuing. Tax credits reduce the amount of income tax paid, dollar for dollar; so many lowincome people can recoup the amount they contribute to retirement accounts by

up to 50 percent through reduced taxes. And those whose employers match a portion of their 401(k) contributions reap even bigger rewards. Another good selling point: Parents or grandparents who want to jumpstart their low-income kids' retirement savings can fund their IRA or 401(k) contribution, thereby making them eligible for the saver's credit even if they can't afford to contribute on their own. Here's the nitty-gritty on the saver's credit: The saver's credit is a "nonrefundable" tax credit, which means it reduces income taxes owed, dollar for dollar – although it won't generate a tax refund if the credit is more than the taxes you owe. The saver's credit helps offset part of the amount you voluntarily contribute to an IRA or 401(k) plan. Your credit amount

is based on your tax filing status, adjusted gross income and the amount you contribute to qualifying retirement programs. It can be claimed by: • Married couples filing jointly with adjusted gross income (AGI) of no more than $59,000. • Heads of households with AGI up to $44,250. • Singles (or married filing separately) with AGI up to $29,500. The credit rate is 10 percent, 20 percent or 50 percent of the first $2,000 you contribute ($4,000 for married couples filing jointly), depending on your AGI; the lower your AGI the higher the percentage. For example: • Single filers with an CREDIT, See page 12A

Don't Get Spooked by Pests in Your Home This Halloween

(NewsUSA) - As fall sets in, many families begin thinking about Halloween: the costumes, the decorations, the parties and, of course, the trick-or-treating. Although rubber spiders, plastic bats and other ghoulish creatures are part of the fun of the holiday, real pest invasions can be quite a fright. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) advises homeowners to take precautions against creepy pests, which may look to take up residence during the cooler months. "Whether they are hiding in boxes of Halloween decorations that have been in storage the past year or looking for an easy way through a crack or crevice, creepy crawly pests can and do easily find their way indoors," noted Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the NPMA. "Because real spiders, cockroaches and rodents are surely not the spooky décor most homeowners have in mind, we

Don't let rodents and pests ruin Halloween festivities. encourage them to take a few easy steps to prevent infestations." The NPMA offers the following tips for pestproofing your home against unwelcome pests this fall: • Check all decorations before bringing them inside for any pests that may have nested over the past year. • Seal all cracks and crevices around the foundation of the home. Mice, often in search of warmth, can fit through holes the size of a dime. • Check for gaps under

exterior doors, and install door sweeps to close them. Spiders can fit through openings as thin as a piece of paper. • Trim branches or bushes that touch the home. These wooden pathways can provide direct pest highways right into the house. • Store firewood several feet away from the house. Wood that is next to the foundation of a home offers a welcoming environment for rodents, termites and other pests. PESTS, See page 12A

Foreclosure Crisis is Drawing to a Close

By Les Christie NEW YORK -- Our long national foreclosure nightmare may be over. The number of new foreclosure filings in August hit its lowest level in nearly eight years, according to RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosed properties. Soaring home prices and a big decline in underwater borrowers -- those who owe more on their mortgage loans than their homes are worth -- have helped drive the trend. August's initial foreclosure filings fell 44% to 55,575, just below the 56,063 that were recorded in October 2005. The foreclosure crunch began in summer 2006, at about the same time that housing prices hit their peak. "This is a strong indicator that the crisis is over," said Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac. "The foreclosure floodwaters have receded

Senior Living:

Spotlight on Health:

By Alicia H. Munnell While the unemployment rate for older workers is lower than that for the general population, older workers who lost their jobs during the Great Recession are still suffering. The reemployment rate for those ages 55 to 64 is 47%, compared to 62% for 20-to-54year-olds. And it takes an average of 52 weeks for older workers to find a new job, compared to about half as long for workers in their early 20s. Experiments in which researchers sent out resumes for older and younger workers with similar skills have shown that older workers are much less likely to be called in for an interview. Employers are clearly reluctant to hire older men and women. One reason might be that employers fear that once they hire an older worker, they may not be able to get rid of these older hires when they are no longer productive. In the early 1970s, about half of all Americans

By Whitney Greer The good news? Americans are exercising more. The bad news. The obesity epidemic is still growing. A nine-year study of data from the University of Washington suggests that physical activity alone is not enough to combat the problem of excessive weight gain. “While physical activity has improved noticeably in most counties, obesity has also continued to rise in nearly all counties,” said lead researcher Laura Dwyer-Lindgren, from the university’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. The obesity problem is directly related to how much Americans eat, said senior author Ali Mokdad, a professor of global health

Bring Back Mandatory Retirement? The Disease No One is Safe From

were covered by mandatory-retirement provisions that required they leave their jobs no later than a certain age, usually 65. In 1978, the earliest legal age for mandatory retirement was increased from 65 to 70 through amendments to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). Under pressure from civilrights activists, an aging population, and rising Social Security costs, mandatory retirement was eliminated entirely in 1986 for the majority of workers through further amend-

ments to the ADEA. Some exceptions to the prohibition include airline pilots, judges, partners in professional firms, and some highly placed executives. Life without mandatory retirement is hard. Compensation and health-care costs tend to increase with age, and in many – albeit not all – cases productivity declines. Employers can dismiss older workers who cannot do their jobs. But that is a very unpleasant task for both parties. The elimination of mandatory RETIREMENT, See page 11B

Getting the Right Life Insurance Balance

(NewsUSA) - Would you be able to cover more than a few months of living expenses if your family's primary earner died? If you answered "No," there's at least some consolation in knowing that two-thirds of U.S. households are in the same boat, according to research from the association LIMRA. So, for anyone concerned about society's future wellbeing, the question is this: If so many Americans apparently realize that life insurance is one of the best ways to protect against potential impoverishment -- half of U.S. households say they "need more" of it -- why, then, is ownership of such policies at a 50year low? And by "low," we mean that three out of 10 households completely lack life insurance. With a hat tip to September being "Life Insurance Awareness Month," experts cite three main reasons for the drop-off:

Shopping for life insurance may be easier than you think. • Economic turmoil. Let's face it, the past decade has been rough for most people. Wages have stagnated when adjusted for inflation. Home mortgages remain underwater. The Big Corollary (Non) Surprise As Americans Tightened Their Belts: Since 2007, the volume of new individual life insurance sales has fallen annually by five percent -- and more people have let their policies expire.

• Misperceptions about the "prohibitive" cost. Neil Sprackling, president of U.S. life and health at Swiss Re (www.swissre. com), a leading wholesale provider of reinsurance celebrating its 150th anniversary, is among those who say people would be surprised to learn that a policy can actually cost as little as one latte per week. "Balance that," he says, "against the reality that life insurance is essential to a family's long-term health. An inadequate policy could spell big trouble, and the wrong policy could render a household unable to maintain their standard of living upon the death of an income-generating family member." • Too many and too complex options. "Overwhelmed" is probably a fair way to describe consumers' typical reaction to all the different policies out there. So, it's heartening to know that the industry INSURANCE, See page 11B

Do Omega-3 Fatty Acids Really Bolster Aging Brains?

By Elizabeth Agnvall “Eat your fish — it’s brain food,” our mothers told us, and we repeat that mantra to our own children. For years we’ve heard that fish, especially fatty fish such as salmon, is good for our brain health. And many scientists identified omega-3 fatty acids as the substance in the fish that would help our math skills, keep us alert and preserve our brain health. That made sense because omega-3 fatty acids — which are also found in high levels in tuna, sardines and trout — are a type of fat that is crucial in brain function. Based on those ideas, plenty of people started taking fish oil pills with omega-3s to keep their brains sharp — after all, the pills don’t stink up the kitchen. But some scientists weren’t sure all those logical leaps — from fish to pills to brain health — really made sense. In 2012 a group of scientists reviewed all the scientific literature on omega-3s

supplements. Their analysis found that the pills didn’t seem to help brain health. A new study published in the journal Neurology supports that finding, at least when it comes to older women. The new study involved 2,157 women ages 65 to 80 who were enrolled in the Women’s Health Initiative clinical trials of hormone therapy. The women were given annual tests of thinking and memory skills for an average of six years. Blood tests were taken to measure the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in the participants’ blood before the start of the study. Researchers at the University of Iowa analyzed these tests and found no difference in memory tests between the women with high and low levels of omega-3s in the blood. They also didn’t find that omega-3s made any difference in how fast thinking skills declined. A couple of important caveats: The researchers did not measure the women’s dietary intake of omega-3

fats, only blood levels at the beginning of the study. Those levels may have changed over time. Where did omega-3 fats get their brain-healthy reputation? The Neurology study’s lead author, Eric Ammann, an epidemiologist with the University of Iowa, said that although previous studies have found that omega-3s seem to protect brain function, those studies didn’t prove cause and effect. There could be other factors influencing the results. “People who eat lots of fish or nuts, or who take omega-3 supplements, tend to be more affluent and health conscious than those who don’t. They are also less likely to smoke, more likely to exercise, and have a lower body mass index,” he said. Ammann says the take-home advice from his study comes down to this: Keep the fish in your diet, but consider talking to your doctor about the supplements.

at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. “Americans are not doing enough to control what they eat,” he said. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese, and obesity contributes to serious

chronic illnesses, high medical costs and premature death. “We have to face the reality that obesity is affecting our health,” Mokdad said. “We need to take care of ourselves by watching what we eat and how much we exercise.” DISEASE, See page 12A

Last Month was Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

By James Morning Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men, striking over 200,000 men each year. African-American men are at the highest risk. Every year, about 30,000 men die of this disease, making it the second deadliest cancer in men. Caught early, prostate cancer can be treated, usually successfully. But because many men experience no symptoms, it is often identified only by an abnormal result on a basic prostate cancer screening. For the last 20 years, doctors have had a powerful weapon in their arsenal for detecting prostate cancer. In addition to the DRE (a physical exam allowing the doctor to feel the prostate), patients can also have a simple blood test called a PSA, which

A quantity surveyor by profession, Alhajri is a focused, hard worker, although he achieved his dream when he “discovered the physical and mental health cure” which he shares in “The Miracle & Wonders of Treatment from Hot Water” and its companion book, “The Values of Well Being & Its Secrets for a Better Living – Theories.” Alhajri describes the contents in “The Miracle & Wonders of Treatment from Hot Water” as, “The various studies and efforts that were exerted for the last six years have proven that by understanding the benefits of drinking hot water and by abiding the methods of drinking hot water, it kills harmful bacteria, neutralizes toxins and melts the fats inside our bodies. “Water is the elixir of our life,” says Alhajri. “There is a miracle in water as it is considered the most powerful medicine in the world.

FreedomPop Launches Plan You Won't Believe How Many with Free Calling and Text Americans Don't Use the Internet

By Betsy Isaacson For years, wireless companies have been giving you a phone for free and then killing you with monthly bills. Now, one company has flipped the promo. Startup FreedomPop is promising consumers a completely free data plan with the purchase of a phone. For the cost of a $99 phone, you can get 200 free voice minutes, 500 free texts and 500MB 4G/3G data per month. It’s an amazing deal, so what’s FreedomPop and what’s the catch? FreedomPop also sells portable Wi-Fi hotspots, high-speed wireless Internet and iPod cases that turn an iPod Touch into a makeshift iPhone. The company has a history of selling products with skeletal (but free) data plans, and then letting users boost their data consumption by paying additional fees or

FreedomPop customers can get 1GB of phone data for $10, 2GB for $20, 4GB for $35, or 5GB for $40, according to Gizmodo, but that’s when the pricing starts to stink. Retailers like Virgin Mobile sell unlimited data for $35 a month.

For many people, 200 voice minutes, 500 texts and 500 MB 4G/3G data is a pretty bare-bones cell phone plan. For $10.99 a month, FreedomPop users can upgrade to unlimited talk and text, but any extra data over 500 MB comes with costs -each MB over the cap costs an additional $.02.

The next time you have an absolute meltdown when your Internet connection goes out during a Netflix binge, think about this: 15 percent of Americans don't use the Internet at all, according to a new study from the Pew Internet And American Life Project. Thirty-four percent of those not using the Web said it's simply not relevant to their life -- they're "not interested," and "too busy." These respondents also said the Internet was a "waste of time." A point that's hard to counter after you've spent more than an hour on Facebook looking at pictures of your ex-boyfriend's new dog. More significantly, another 19 percent of noninternet users said the Internet was too expensive -- indicating that we still

have a ways to go in closing the so-called digital divide. Notably more people said they had trouble using the Internet this year than they did in 2010. Three years ago only one in five non-Internet users cited difficulty getting on-

line, that number has now jumped to one in three. Not surprisingly, a vast majority of Internet holdouts are seniors. Nearly half of non-Internet users are 65 and older; 44 percent of Americans in that demographic don't use the web at all.

By Ryan Nakashima SEATTLE — Amazon is refreshing its line-up of tablet computers with new devices called Kindle Fire HDX, which are significantly faster and lighter than the previous generation. The 7-inch (17.8-centimeter) and 8.9-inch (22.6-centimeter) versions also have sharper, more colorful displays than older models, and both have more pixels per inch than the latest iPad. To help those who are unfamiliar with tablets, the new Kindles come with a feature called "Mayday", which allows users to summon a live customer service representative in a tiny video window. The helpers can explain new features or troubleshoot problems while guiding users with on-screen hand scribbles. They can even take control of the device from afar. CEO Jeff Bezos intro-

duced the feature to reporters, saying it is "completely unique" and takes advantage of Amazon's massive cloud computing and customer service infrastructure. It also builds on Amazon.com Inc.'s reputation for excellent customer service. "You shouldn't have to be afraid of your device," Bezos said. In a demo, Bezos asked an on-screen customer

service rep to recommend a hot app. The rep mentioned "Angry Birds: Star Wars II". Bezos also received instructions on how to set time limits on various activities for children. In the May-July period, Kindles accounted for 17 percent of all tablets sold in the U.S., compared to 48 percent for Apple’s iPad and 8 percent for Samsung’s Galaxy line, according to NPD.

Facing increased competition from Google and Apple, Roku is trying to stay in the streaming game by refreshing its products without raising prices. The company announced that it's giving its lineup of set-top boxes, which stream video from the Internet to your TV, a facelift, as well as making it easier to purchase new releases and popular TV shows. The announcement comes as Roku faces fierce streaming competition from some of the biggest tech companies. Apple TV continues to add apps for premium channels, and is selling better than ever. Chromecast, the $35 Google streaming stick that puts Netflix, YouTube and your Internet browser on TV, sold so well after it was announced in July the product was backordered for months and Google had to end a promotional partnership with Netflix just one day after the device went on sale.

NEW YORK - T-Mobile US Inc, the No. 4 U.S. wireless service provider, plans to stop carrying BlackBerry Ltd smartphones in its stores and instead ship the devices directly, according to an executive for the company. David Carey, executive vice president for corporate services told Reuters about the plan on Wednesday, a few days after BlackBerry said it would no longer market to consumers because of drastically weakening smartphone sales. Carey said that "keep-

Twitter Hoax Reveals What We Desire Most from Machines

Twitterers around the world received some devastating news: The Twitter account @Horse_ebooks, a cult favorite, was human after all. For years, @Horse_ebook’s over 200,000 avid followers had been convinced its sometimes poetic, often nonsensical, frequently hilarious tweets had been the musings of a spambot created to elude Twitter’s spam detectors and peddle books about horses. There was something captivating about an algorithm that seemed so gifted at capturing the conundrums of our age. (“Everything happens so much” read one post, retweeted 8,500 times.) Recently, that fantasy came crashing down. The New Yorker’s Susan Orlean revealed that two living, breathing homo sapiens had been composing the tweets as an art piece. The disappointment that followed this crushing news stemmed in part from an indignation at having been fooled, and in part from the letdown at learning such witticisms had stemmed from people. We were rooting for the robot. We loved the idea that something we thought was meant to be a nuisance -- to sell us things -- could be so charming. Here, finally, was an algorithm that wasn’t just efficient, but actually was weirdly insightful. Our dismay at finding that the bot was human actually reveals a great deal about we want from our devices: We're rooting for the compassionate computer.

Commentary The Real Lesson of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’

Republicans’ Venom Aimed at Obama

Jesse Jackson, Sr. America just celebrated the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s great “I Have a Dream” speech. Everyone says that they “love” Dr. King (now), but the media did notice that no top Republican Party leaders attended any of the main anniversary events. Maybe it was this line of Dr. King ’s that they don’t like: “I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification…” What is nullification? It’s one of the last-ditch philosophical stands of the slaveholders, the historically disreputable — and thoroughly discredited — concept that a state could “nullify” a federal law by declaring it null and void. The idea of the Slave Power was that the Southern states would “interpose” themselves between the national government and the slaveholders, and prevent our laws from being enforced. The concept was most famously expounded by South Carolina Sen. John C. Calhoun almost two centuries ago. It has been struck down repeatedly by the courts and was never accepted outside the Con-

federacy. Since it was used mainly to protect slavery in the South, it eventually helped lead to a horrible Civil War, and eventually the idea was totally discredited. But we forgot to drive a stake through its heart. The idea has never completely died away and keeps creeping into our politics in dangerous forms. Now we see it raising its ugly head in the battle to block Obamacare, risking the economy of the whole country, as Republicans in Washington act at the beck and call of the one-quarter of America that calls itself the Tea Party. We’re not talking the Boston Tea Party here. We’re talking the Fort Sumter Tea Party. We’re talking about a modern, right-wing movement built on a new Republican South in reaction to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. A “Southern Strategy” led by Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms led directly to the elections of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan and eventually to Speaker Newt Gingrich and President George W. Bush. The Fort Sumter Tea Party has never accepted the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s presidency. A

huge chunk of the right wing has subjected the first African-American president to massive abuse, name-calling, vicious threats. Unfortunately, due to John Boehner’s lack of leadership in the House, the tea party minority faction now dictates policy and rhetoric to the entire GOP. This means that the GOP continues to try to delegitimize, defund and delay Obamacare. They have spent the last 5 years trying to keep poor and working Americans from getting health care. This is wrong, it’s immoral, and it’s very undemocratic, since Barack Obama was re-elected by a large margin. But as I write this, the GOP has taken our nation to the brink of disaster, holding our economy hostage to extort the Senate and the president to defund or delay Obamacare. The GOP is holding our hospitals hostage. They’re holding our universities hostage. They’re holding the Smithsonian Museum, LESSON, See page 11B

Another upcoming deadline is the October 17 deadline to raise the debt ceiling or further imperil our once-solid credit rating. In each instance, Republicans have another opportunity to crow about their fiscal mindedness and argue about Obamacare. But, as Harry Reid has said, Obamacare is the law of the land. It takes effect October 1, government shutdown or not. The Republican House may despise Obamacare and they may change some provisions of it, but they can’t stop it now. Indeed, Republicans are gearing up for the debt ceiling debate, which is another opportunity for brinksmanship. If they remove the Affordable Care Act from negotiations, it will surely resurface when the debt ceiling is discussed. We can spend the rest of this year, and part of next, with this budgetary brinkmanship, all driven by the fact that many Republicans simply cannot stand the notion of the Affordable Care Act. Actually, it’s not just about the Affordable Care Act, it is about President Obama and Republican resistance to anything he proposes. Their attitudes go beyond partisanship to

venomous distaste. You’d have to go back to the nineteenth century to find members of Congress so rude as to holler out “you lie” as a President spoke, assertions that that thing would happen “over my dead body” are far more common. It has always amused me when people so quickly offer their dead bodies up for discussion, as if they so lightly value their living bodies that they’d offer their dead one in the name of public policy. Just recently, Rand Paul said the federal government would bail out Detroit over his dead body, and years ago Dick Armey (R-TX) said the minimum wage would pass over his. Last I heard the minimum wage rose and Armey is still living, though no longer in Congress. If the government does shut down, “nonessential” employees will not be paid. The bumbling Congress, however, will continue to be compensated for the little they do. Many Congressional representatives don’t care because they OBAMA, See page 11B

Lee A. Daniels ic speaking skills, have gained Jackson the GOP nomination for Virginia’s second-highest office and made him the most prominent Black Republican running for office this year. But they’ve also helped to turn the GOP’s oncebright prospects for retaining the two highest offices of that politically-important state into a tightlycontested race – one in which Jackson’s partner at the top of the ticket, Virginia’s current Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli II, has continually had to distance himself from Jackson’s more inflammatory remarks. It’s gotten so bad that recently, after Jackson said he’d support eliminating the state’s corporate income tax, a spokeswoman for Cuccinelli declined to tell the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch whether he agreed with Jackson. “Ken speaks for Ken,” she said. “If E.W. is saying things, you’ll have to ask him about it.” What makes that standoffishness the more ironic is that Cuccinelli is himself a Tea Party favorite who, during the campaign has tried to obscure his past positions in order to appeal to the state’s growing bloc of politically independent and moderate-conserva-

At press time, it was unclear whether Congress would finally evade a government shutdown on October 1. I do know, however, that I am sick of the budgetary brinkmanship that plagues our government. Every few months there is some crisis or another that has the House of Representatives and the White House at loggerheads. This time, Republicans in Congress want to defund Obamacare as part of the budget that must be passed and say they are willing to let government close to meet their goal. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid says that Republicans are holding a gun to the American people’s heads and he isn’t lying. It doesn’t stop on October 1. The back-and-forth exists because Congress has not passed a budget the way it normally does since 2009. Now, government operates through a series of continuing resolutions that make it difficult for federal departments to know how much they have to spend. And if Congress passes an agreement to keep government open, it will only keep it open through November or December 15, depending on which version (House or Senate) of the law passes.

Beyond the Rhetoric:

The Gutter Politics of Virginia’s E. W. Jackson Following the campaign trail of E.W. Jackson, the evangelical minister who’s the Republican Party candidate for lieutenant governor of Virginia, is an exercise in astonishment. Does Jackson, who holds degrees from Harvard Law School and Harvard Divinity School, really believe, as he’s said, that while “slavery did not destroy the Black family, even though it certainly was an attack on the Black family,” it was with the passage of the federal Great Society that “the Black family began to deteriorate?” Does Jackson really believe, as he’s said, that “Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to Black lives than the KKK ever was. And the Democrat (sic) Party and their Black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide?” Does he really believe that homosexuals are “frankly very sick people, psychologically, mentally, and emotionally, and they see everything through the lens of homosexuality?” Does he really believe, as he’s said, that people who say they are religious but aren’t adherents of Christianity are practicing “some sort of false religion?” Those sentiments, along with his charismat-

tive voters. Jackson’s statements show the true sentiments behind the curtain of bland campaign pronouncements. All are among the key talking points of the radical conservatism that has become the tail wagging the dog of the Republican Party: bigotry against Black and Hispanic Americans; a denunciation of women’s reproductive rights that is anchored in crackpot conspiracy theories and weird science; homophobia, of course; and a deeply-rooted religious intolerance against anyone who doesn’t follow their brand of Christianity. How, one might wonder, did the political party which in the late 1990s generated a Colin-Powellfor-President boomlet that captured the attention of a lot of Democrats, too, descend to an E.W. Jackson? One part of the answer is that, in fact, Jackson, like Cuccinelli, benefited from the same Republican Party dynamic that in the past five years threw up Sarah ‘you betcha’ Palin, Missouri’s Todd ‘legitimate rape’ Akin, and a host of others with cookie-cutter JACKSON, See page 11B

There have been times in the 20-year history of the National Black Chamber of Commerce that we had to put on our agenda a major lawsuit. It is in our mission to promote the interests of Black entrepreneurs. Much of that is advocacy, public policy, procurement enhancement, etc. But sometimes you can bundle that all up and give it a steroid shot by filing a lawsuit against an entity that seems to oppose all of that. Such was the matter with US West. The 14 state telecom (now known as Quest) was a powerful force in the industry. It was developing a reputation as being aloof to Black businesses and, believe it or not, the Colorado Black Chamber of Commerce was afraid to confront them on this important matter. Every now and then I would get a complaint about them. I decided to go over to the General Services Administration (GSA) and look at telecom minority participation records. Every report had US West dead last in minority participation. Specifically, Black participation was a zero, “nada”, “goose egg”, down right nothing. Thus, I sent out a message on the next eblast to our database: “If

you feel your company has been discriminated against by US West contact our office for follow up.. We got seven complaints. Three of the complaints were by trucking companies (located in Phoenix, Omaha and Des Moines). Their contracts were abruptly cancelled on the same day within a 20-minute period and were replaced with Whiteowned trucking companies. It definitely smelled like a conspiracy. The other firms were suppliers, a janitorial firm and two IT firms. Seven complaints were enough to start a war. We all met in St. Louis at the law firm of our attorney. We unanimously decided to file a discrimination lawsuit. We filed it and the war was officially on. It was our intention to expand this complaint into a class action lawsuit but we would have to have meaningful participation from Black firms in Denver, the base of US West. Therefore, we asked for a meeting with the management of the Colorado Black Chamber of Commerce. We went there and explained the merits of the lawsuit. We asked the 40+ businesses there had any of them done business with US West, the corporate

giant of their hometown. Not one hand went up. We assume they would be in support but to our surprise, they were horrified. “I can’t mess with US West!” “They could destroy my company.” “They could destroy my business.” Wow! I felt like Harriet Tubman trying to convince slaves to jump the fence and run to freedom. They had no will to fight. Finally, our attorney stood up and stated, “Listen! We have come to this town to put our foot up US West’s behind and if you want to get in the way we will put our foot up yours.” The timid group thought we were crazy. Sleepy towns such as Indianapolis, Denver, etc. need to be shaken. Controversy can be your ally in these types of situation. From this meeting we decided to get right up into US West’s face. We announced that being that we had a major lawsuit in Denver; the NBCC would bring its annual convention to the city. The times were getting contentious and then I got a phone call from one of the opposing attorneys. He DENVER, See page 11B

LIFE From page 2A “He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.” The Scripture plainly says you reap what you sow (Galatians 6:7). If you desire to be a receiver, you have to be a giver. “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38). 4) Believing and Saying “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak” (II Corinthians 4:13).The Bible says several times, “The just shall live by faith” Romans 1:17. Abraham was blessed because he lived by faith. He believed God. We’re supposed to live the same way: “So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham” (Galatians 3:9).Faith must be in two places—in your heart and in your mouth. “The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach” (Romans 10:8). Believing in your heart and saying with your mouth produce the operation of faith. “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith” (Mark 11:23). I learned that if I let the word of God get in to my heart in abundance, it would come out of my mouth as faith-filled words and Gods words coming out of my mouth or your mouth can and will changed things around us!

But in the Canton plant, according to the report, Nissan has launched a campaign of fear and intimidation to nullify these rights. “Under international law and pursuant to its own stated commitments, Nissan is supposed to respect human rights standards on workers’ freedom of association – the right to organize and the right to collective bargaining. But in the Canton plant, Nissan has launched an aggressive campaign of fear and intimidation to nullify these rights,” said Johnson. “Our research shows that Nissan is not living up to the standards of worker treatment enshrined in International Labor Organization (ILO) core labor standards, UN human rights principles, and other international norms. It also belies Nissan’s own public commitments to honor international standards through its membership in the United Nations Global Compact,” said Compa, an American lawyer currently based in Europe. “Workers’ descriptions of how they are treated behind the walls of the massive Nissan plant in Canton, Miss., affirm that Nissan is systematically interfering with the internationally recognized right to form a union.” “Workers and everyone in the Canton community are appreciative of this research on the unfair treatment of Nissan workers,” said Cong. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss). “The finding that Nissan is in violation of international labor rights standards is alarming. I and the entire Canton community continue to stand with workers in Mississippi, because they deserve the freedom to organize a union if they so choose, free from implied threats.” The International Labor Organization’s (ILO) 1998 Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and ILO Conventions 87 and 98 are the foundation of international standards on workers’ freedom of association. They prohibit: • Imposing pressure, instilling fear, and making threats of any kind that undermine workers’ right to freedom of association. • Creating an atmosphere of intimidation and fear with respect to union organizing. • Pressuring or threatening retaliatory measures against workers if they choose union representation. • Denying reasonable access for workers to hear from union representatives inside the workplace. Workers at Nissan’s Canton plant, who are supported by a growing student movement, community organizations and trade unions around the world, described in the report treatment that violates the ILO’s 1998 declaration and conventions 87 and 98 – standards included as well in the UN Global Compact, which Nissan joined in 2004. Worker Jeff Moore, a body shop quality technician hired in 2001, stated that anti-union intimidation began early on. “In the first meetings, managers told us that Nissan is totally non-union and didn’t want any part of unions, that unions make plants close,” said Moore. “Everything they said about unions was negative, nothing positive. It’s like they were drilling it into our heads, stay away from the union,” said Moore. Workers also recounted “captive audience” meetings in which they were forced to watch films and hear speeches filled with implicit threats of plant closure if they formed a union, and orchestrated one-on-one meetings with supervisors warning of dire consequences if they

choose union representation. Nissan, the report says, also targets their anti-union behavior at hundreds of “associates” or temporary workers, known as precarious workers globally, many of whom do the same work as regular Nissan employees but are paid lower wages and have less job security. The report concludes temp workers, because of their tenuous situation, often feel even more susceptible to the company’s intimidation and climate of fear if they support a union. The report’s authors say call on Nissan to change its practices; specifically: • Affirm workers’ right to organize in keeping with the core labor standards of the ILO and ILO Convention 87 on freedom of association. • Make clear that Nissan will not close the plant or fail to introduce new product lines because workers choose union representation. • Assure workers that if they choose representation, Nissan will negotiate in good faith with a sincere desire to reach a collective bargaining agreement; and • Grant access to UAW representatives so that employees can receive information from them inside the workplace. The report also recommends that socially responsible investment firms “ … re-evaluate their portfolio holdings of Nissan stock in light of ILO standards and the company’s actions at the Canton plant, and engage with Nissan management to encourage adoption of the recommendations in this report” and that “ … The United Nations Global Compact and the OECD … consider whether the company’s actions in Canton are consistent with its commitments to, and obligations under, international labor standards.” Nissan recognizes and bargains with unions at almost all of its operations globally, but not in the U.S. Nissan workers and their supporters want Nissan to change how it treats workers, including: • Stopping the anti-union campaign at its U.S. operations and treating workers with dignity and respect. Allowing union supporters equal time to address employees on the issue of union representation. Apologizing and retracting past statements that imply the future of the plants would be at stake if workers choose union representation. • Providing permanent jobs for all temporary workers and paying these workers the same as it does its regular employees.

The information is then transferred to a laptop computer, which displays a trace of the “shake” that the student generated with their jumps. In Seale’s time, the equipment has evolved from the expensive and complicated field gear, where measurements were recorded that took days or even weeks to analyze and return to the students, to a USB accelerometer, with software developed by NEES@UCSB and the Quake Catcher Network, that not only allows the students to walk away with a printout, but also made the module more readily available to schools outside of the UCSB area. Due to current funding uncertainties at the federal level, Make Your Own Earthquake may no longer be a regular sight at local Santa Barbara elementary school science fairs. However, NEES@UCSB will be maintaining –– and even increasing –– its outreach by putting together an interactive exhibit at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum which will feature, among other things, the MYOE module. The exhibit is anticipated to be completed within the next few months.

It’s a professional conference attended by Ph.D.holding professors from around the world and a handful of Ph.D. students. When I first started working with these students, they had almost no idea what research was or how to do it.” The annual ICCSA conference offers opportunities to discuss new issues, tackle complex problems, and find advanced solutions able to shape new trends

in computational science. Learn more at www.iccsa.org.

BASS From page 6A Commision’s first female head including that of its predecessor organization, the Organization of African Unity (OAU). Her visit coincides with highlevel meeting at the 68th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) held in New York. “What an incredible honor to not only have Chairperson Zuma come to address this year’s Braintrust, but also two sitting presidents,” said Rep. Bass. “We plan to build on this event to continue the dialogue regarding the U.S. relationship with the African continent and I hope to continue to engage relevant stakeholders as we develop a more positive narrative of Africa.” Chairperson Zuma paid homage to the combined 50th anniversary of the OAU and AU and a history which saw the fall of colonialism and apartheid and the rise of the independent nations of Africa. The Chairperson also remembered the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and the impact Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy had in Africa. The African Presidents’ Panel featured President Blaise Compaoré of Burkina Faso and President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud of the Federal Republic of Somalia. Each addressed the audience regarding their perspectives of the role of the African Union. President Compoare spoke of the “Brotherhood and Solidarity” of the AU and his experience assisting in the mediation of peaceful settlements on the continent. President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud spoke of the role played by the AU in support of Somalia enabling the country to “stand on its feet” following two decades of conflict and anarchy. Congressional Black Caucus Chair Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) also spoke briefly at the African Braintrust. JACKSON From page 6A proposals to convert the land underneath their homes,” said Brian Augusta, legislative advocate for the Golden State Manufactured Home-Owners League. “Governor Brown’s action today gives them the right to be heard and protect their investment in their homes.” Current law on the issue has been unclear, and the uncertainty has led to dozens of lawsuits. The City of Goleta has spent more than a half million dollars just on litigation expenses related to the conversion of the Rancho Mobilehome Park. California has nearly 5,000 mobile home parks. Typically, residents own their mobile homes but rent the spaces in which their homes are placed. MAYOR From page 7A Prosecutors said that Kilpatrick used the mayor’s office to steer $127 million in contracts to Ferguson, a contractor and head of Ferguson Enterprises. Kilpatrick was convicted of 24 charges, including racketeering, extortion, attempted extortion, bribery, mail fraud, wire fraud

and filing false tax returns, after a five-month federal trial that concluded in March. Ferguson, who was convicted by a jury of nine out of 11 counts he faced during trial, was said to have extorted at least $73 million worth of contracts and fees during the Kilpatrick administration.

Willard Bass, founder of the Institute for Dismantling Racism and a Winston Lake Y member, to discuss the incident. Boston said the meeting felt more like an “interrogation” than a mediation session. “They weren’t hearing anything I was saying. The first thing that came out of their mouths was, ‘We call ourselves the nword everyday, what’s the big deal?’” he said. “That was the way they came at me with it.”

DISEASE From page 9A From 2001 to 2009, the percentage of adults meeting recommendations for physical activity — 150 minutes of moderate activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity a week — increased in most counties in the United States, the researchers report July 10 in Population Health Metrics. But the percentage of adults considered obese also increased significantly. “In some counties, this increase was greater than 15 percentage points,” DwyerLindgren said. There was very little correlation between change in obesity and change in physical activity, the researchers noted.

Having an annual prostate exam, including a PSA test, just might save your life. No matter what age you are, that annual PSA test creates a benchmark against which to judge future tests. When you receive your PSA test results, ask your health care provider what your PSA number is, write it down, and compare it against future tests. If the number goes up in future tests, talk to your doctor. It’s the perfect time to call your health care provider, schedule an appointment, and get your prostate cancer test done.

Legendary Motown Group Sued Ruben Studdard Joins 'Biggest Loser' Cast

PONTIAC, Mich. — A Detroit-area law firm has filed suit against the Four Tops, claiming the singing group owes it $109,000 in legal fees. Sullivan, Ward, Asher & Patton filed the lawsuit in Oakland County Circuit Court. According to The Detroit News, the Southfield firm says it has provided legal services on behalf of the Four Tops, but the group failed to pay an outstanding balance of $109,156.73. The group was a key member of the Motown Records family of artists during the Detroit label's 1960s heyday.

Renaldo 'Obie' Benson, Abdul 'Duke' Fakir, Lawrence Payton and Levi Stubbs of the Four Tops Abdul "Duke" Fakir is The Four Tops' hits inthe only original member clude "Reach Out, I'll Be still with the group. He's There" and "Baby I Need named in the suit. Your Loving."

Michael B. Jordan Rumored for 'Independence Day 2' Role

Welcome to Earth? According to TheWrap, Michael B. Jordan is being sought as a potential star in "Independence Day 2," Roland Emmerich's upcoming sequel to the 1996 blockbuster. The site reports, however, that Jordan has not received an offer from Twentieth Century Fox and that he shouldn't expect to see one, if it even comes, until the holidays. Jordan, a breakout star this year thanks to the Sundance film "Fruitvale Station," is already attached to star in the movie "Creed," a seventh sequel to Rocky. (Jordan would play Apollo Creed's grandson.) The 26-year-old has also been rumored to play The Hu-

Michael B. Jordan man Torch in the Fox reboot of "Fantastic Four." It's possible he could fit those films and "ID4 2" into his schedule: Fox has the "Independence Day" sequel set for release in 2015, but Emmerich recently said that the date

could push to 2016. The elephant in the room, of course, is whether Will Smith will return to the franchise to reprise his role. Over the summer, Emmerich said Smith would cost too much, but in a recent interview the director claimed that Smith's participation was still on the table. "It's changing every month. To put a sequel together of that magnitude is an enormous undertaking," Emmerich said to Digital Spy. "I sometimes say, 'No, Will Smith will not be in it,' because he didn't want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen."

Chicago, IL -- When the neo-soul, smooth jazz vocalist KENYA was a kid, she took years of piano lessons and sang in community ensembles. However, after the Denver, CO native graduated from high school, she put music aside and mapped out a career as a physical therapist. "No one in my family considered music a viable option," she laughs. Fastforward to 2008, Kenya was married with kids and had a successful physical therapy practice but something was missing and not knowing what it was threw her into a funk. "Lots of stuff was happening," she confesses as she reflects on that period when her marriage was crumbling because of her depression. "I had some come to Jesus moments because I knew something was wrong." As a fluke,

she took a music theory class at a community college to distract her from her issues and the joy of being involved with music again began to heal her. "I started meeting people and Chicago's a big music place so we have a lot of independent artists so I began to feel more at home there. My husband noticed the positive change in me and said, 'is this what was missing? Music?'" When Johnson realized that music was bringing Kenya so much joy, he encouraged it and before long she was in the studio recording songs with the Grammy Award winning producer Maurice Joshua who has produced or remixed tracks by Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Rhianna. The resulting digital EP "Starting Over" ignited the buzz on Kenya's smooth style and led to her

current album "Jazz Made Rhythm" that features her cozy rendition of Michael Jackson's 1979 evergreen "I Can't Help It." The clever Sugaboom remix of the song has been transformed into a music video featuring Malik Yoba and the tune has risen to the Top Ten on London's Starpoint Radio Soul chart. Kenya has peace of mind now that she's reconnected with her musical roots and is having success. She's opened for Lalah Hathaway at Chicago's House of Blues, performed at Billie's Black in Harlem, The Biltmore in Los Angeles and Denver's Dazzle Jazz Club. Now that she's back with her first love, Kenya says, "Its hard to dream because there's so much happening that I never expected. New things keep getting revealed but I'm enjoying the revelations."

Kenya Finds Self-Therapy Through Music

"You know, the funny thing is, I was actually working the night before, so I didn't get an opportunity to have a pig-out session, no," Studdard said in a phone call. "I actually flew from a concert to the ranch. ... I'm sure I probably would have had a piece of cake or something before I went up to the ranch for months and months."

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced the filing of felony complaints against Ana Maria Castro, of Oxnard, and Darlene Monica Neri, of Port Hueneme, and the filing of a misdemeanor complaint against Irma Estela Gardea, of Oxnard. Castro is charged with misappropriation of public funds, embezzlement of public funds, public benefits fraud, and filing false or forged documents, with enhancements alleging the thefts involved the taking of more than $200,000. Neri and Gardea are charged with public benefits fraud. Castro was employed by the Ventura County Human Services Agency (HSA) for 10 years until she resigned in December 2012. As a client benefits specialist, Castro's job duties included managing welfare cases and issuing CalFresh food stamps and cash aid benefits. She is charged with fraudulently appropriating benefits and cash to herself in excess of $240,000. Two of her family members, Neri and Gardea, are charged with using CalFresh food stamp cards not issued to them.

Oxnard, CA – On Friday, October 4, Ephraim & Manasseh Worship Center, pastored by Bishop Princeton Allen and Pastor Tammie S. Allen, kicked off their two-day Women of Warfare Women’s Conference at 2380 Eastman Avenue, Suite 101. The annual event, directed by Dr. Tammie S. Allen, is held for women of all walks of life to come together for spiritual renewal, restoration and revival. This year’s theme was “A Divine Spiritual Makeover.” Day two of the conference featured a worship concert titled “A Throne Room Experience” with Lady Janice Allen & Friends. Many men and

women came to experience the presence of God in a whole new dimension. The Women of Warfare Ministry is the church’s women’s prayer and intercession group. It works to teach women the principles of God and aid battered and abused women. The community has many single mothers that are in need. Some of these women may be in need of job skills or have been hurt and are in need of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Women of Warfare meets for monthly empowerment sessions every first Saturday at 11 a.m. and every third Wednesday at 7 p.m. Ephraim & Manasseh invites the com-

munity to come. About Ephraim & Manasseh Worship Center: Ephraim & Manasseh Worship Center offers a multi-cultural experience featuring worship service every Sunday at 10 a.m. The church offers Christian services including ministries and outreach programs with a strong spirit and dedication to excellence. Bishop Allen had a vision that led to the founding of Ephraim & Manasseh and the ministry education center. In his vision, the Lord showed that no matter where people are in life, the Lord wants us to know He is taking people from the back of the line and moving them to the front.

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.

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

cable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http:// www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-13562746-JB .

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 POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1350279. 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.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of PAUL THEODORE A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Karin Kennedy and Reed Kennedy in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Karin Kennedy and Reed Kennedy be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the 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 Oct. 24, 2013 at 9:00 AM in Dept. No. J6 located at 4353 E. Vineyard, Oxnard, CA 93036. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are 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.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1221699. 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.

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

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this

property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself.

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.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1763 ANDERSON ST, SIMI VALLEY, CA 930652116 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $328,700.32 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of out-

standing liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA05001897-13-1. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

A Petition for Probate has been filed by ANGELIQUE FRIEND in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

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: November 7, 2013 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J-6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E.

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.

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 (855)986-9342, or visit this Internet Web site www.superiordefault. com using the file number assigned to this case 1306422CA . 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. Date: 10/7/2013.

Page 11B

RETIREMENT From page 9A retirement combined with the shift from defined-benefit pensions to 401(k) plans also means that retirement is a much less predictable and orderly event than it has been in the past. With mandatory retirement, both the employer and the employee knew that as of a certain age the relationship would end. And they knew that with the promise of lifetime benefits, employees would have enough money to retire. No such structure exists in a 401(k) environment. If the stock market tanks, employers face the prospect of workers with inadequate 401(k) balances hanging on much longer than desirable – at least from the employer’s perspective. The real challenge in a world of 401(k) plans and an increasingly mobile workforce is for workers in their 50s to be able to get jobs. It seems at least worth considering the possibility that mandatory retirement might make employers more willing to accept older applicants. INSURANCE From page 9A has made big strides in terms of being more user-friendly. Not only can consumers now research and apply for policies online, but many insurance websites offer calculators to determine how much protection a family will need. Another positive: Many financial advisors now partner with life insurance specialists who can walk a customer through the application process quickly. The bottom line? It’s never been easier to find the plan that works for you, and it may be cheaper to acquire that protection than you think. LESSON From page 11A Grand Canyon National Park, the baby panda cam at the National Zoo hostage — along with our slowly recovering economy, the same one they drove into the ditch with their deregulated free market fantasies five years ago. Don’t let them get away with it, President Obama, Senator Reid. Don’t let them nullify Obamacare. Don’t let them shut down our fragile economy. I can’t end this column without making one more point. During his filibuster, Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) read from the Dr. Seuss classic “Green Eggs and Ham.” Now, I know a bit about “Green Eggs and Ham.” Some readers are no doubt old enough to remember the night I read this great story on the air, during a “Saturday Night Live” skit. (Look it up; it’s a funny bit.) I know the story of “Green Eggs and Ham.” But Sen. Cruz must not. Apparently, he doesn’t understand that the story is about a loud, stubborn character who rejects something based entirely on looks, without even trying it. When he’s finally convinced to taste it, he discovers, much to his surprise, that he likes it. In the book, the dish on the table is “Green Eggs and Ham.” In America today, the issue on the table is Obamacare. Maybe the Republicans should let people try the new health care law before they hold the economy hostage in an attempt to nullify it. Jesse L. Jackson is founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. JACKSON From page 11A extreme positions on a broad range of political issues. Afraid of the multiracial and multicultural – and more tolerant – society America was rapidly becoming, a significant bloc of conservatives instead chose to pursue what one can call the politics of ideological purity. What it also meant was that the GOP was choosing to become even Whiter than it already was. As Ryan Lizza’s recent article in The New Yorker, “Where the G.O.P.’s Suicide Caucus Lives, noted, “While the most salient demographic fact about America is that it is becoming more diverse,” many Republican members of Congress come from districts that “actually became less diverse (his emphasis) in 2012.” Lizza, who mapped out the actual districts of House Republicans, continued that these GOP officeholders thus “represent an America where the population is getting whiter, where there are few major cities, where Obama lost the last election in a landslide, and where the Republican Party is becoming more dominant and more popular. Meanwhile, in national politics, each of these trends is actually reversed.” In other words, via Congressional-district gerrymandering, the GOP has built a political “bizarro world” where the time-honored traditions of American politics are reversed: Accommodation to others is always bad. Intolerance of those who have different views on some issues, or practice a different religion is always good. Black conservatism, which at the beginning of the presidency of Ronald Reagan seemed to hold such political promise (although even then that promise was illusory) has followed White conservatism down the same path to the political gutter. That’s where, if you can stand the stench, you’re left, astonished, asking Black and White conservatives: “Do you really believe that?” Lee A. Daniels is a longtime journalist based in New York City. His latest book is Last Chance: The Political Threat to Black America. OBAMA From page 11A don’t need the money. A large percentage of our “lawmakers” are millionaires. Last time there was a government shutdown, people were paid retroactively. This time, back pay is unlikely. With so many government employees experiencing pay cuts because of furloughs, an additional pay cut is onerous. Congress seems unconcerned with the plight of the average government worker. The only good news in this mess is that the American people aren’t stupid. Most of them blame gridlock on House Republicans. The last time government shut down in 1995-96 (when two shut downs lasted a combined 26 days), the people responded by giving President Bill Clinton a second term nine months later. Clinton defeated rival Bob Dole in part because of Dole’s leadership in the government shutdown. With 2014 mid-term elections imminent, Republicans should be worried. When President Obama spoke at the Congressional Black Caucus dinner in late September, he asked people to gear up their activism for the 2014 elections. If the House of Representatives looked more like the Senate (or if more Republicans had good sense), perhaps we could avoid this constant budgetary brinkmanship that has plagued us for the past four years. Julianne Malveaux is a Washington, D.C.-based economist and writer. She is President Emerita of Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, N.C. DENVER From page 11A said, “Mr. Alford, your attorney is about to miss a very serious deadline in filing. If he doesn’t produce required documents, which were seriously past due, by next Friday the judge will throw your lawsuit out.” Besides being shocked I wondered why they were helping us. I had to act quickly. I went to my old friend in Indianapolis, Attorney Robert Webster (White veteran of the civil rights bus rider movement who worked on Indianapolis cases with us). He took over and saved our case. US West hired my childhood companion and first cousin as a vice president. They got the intelligence on my mind from him. He later told me “I let them know that you could not be intimidated and had a bite like a pit bulldog. It is best to settle with him.” At the same time I was given some very sexy controversy about one of the executives who was in the chain of command over their minority business office. In the last deposition, I told it all (hoping it was true). They abruptly ended the deposition. That same day CEO Richard McCormack offered me a flight back to DC.. on their corporate jet. He informed me he would be on the plane also (a planned meeting he had in D.C.). We flew out and discussed our philosophies through the air. At the end of the flight, he said they would settle the case. They did and our guys got paid. The Black folks in Denver still can’t figure out how we were successful and are still alive. As one of their Black businesses told me recently, “Denver Black businesses are pushovers….” There is some truth to that. Harry C. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce. Website: www.nationalbcc.org. Email: halford@nationalbcc.org.

SFJAZZ Collective at the Campbell Hall

Friday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m. at 2301 N. Highland Ave., in Los Angeles After leaving the Commodores, Lionel Richie became one of the most successful male solo artists of the ‘80s, arguably eclipsed during his 1981-1987 heyday only by Michael Jackson and Prince. Richie dominated the pop charts during that period with an incredible run of 13 consecutive Top Ten hits, five of them number ones. As his popularity skyrocketed, Richie moved farther away from his R&B origins and concentrated more on adult contemporary balladry, which had been one of his strengths even as part of the Commodores. Richie performed one of his most popular hits, “All Night Long” (1983), at the closing ceremony of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games. Richie co-wrote the famine relief song “We Are The World” with Michael Jackson in 1993. Later albums include Louder Than Words (1996), Renaissance (2000) and Coming Home (2006).
