Voices and View Points Don’t allow anyone or anything Hyperarousal is Not Sexy to take away your blessings! The Mind Matters Words to Live by

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

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

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

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

#HearOurVoice Wow. Can you believe it’s been over three weeks since we marched five million strong on Jan. 21st? We didn’t stop there, though. Hundreds of thousands of us have gathered at over 4,750 community meetings, or Huddles, across the world to strengthen our local networks and nail down a plan to win back the world we want. All of us, together, have built the Women’s March into a powerful global movement. Now, it’s time for us to mobilize and demand that our elected officials Hear Our Voice. As the third action in our 100 Days campaign, we’re going to collectively generate a wave of thousands of grassroots-led protests, actions, and meetings directly engaging members of Congress when they’re back home for the President’s Day Week.

By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC Are you hyperaroused? That sounds kind of sexy, but it isn’t. Hyperarousal or acute stress response is your body’s response to fear. What are you afraid of? The world can be a very scary place. We all have fears. Some of them are real. Some are imaginary. But the mind doesn’t know the difference between what we perceive as reality and what we imagine. The body doesn’t know the difference either. The body perceives imaginary fear and responds with the same reaction as it would to a real threat. Although our bodies are amazing, they are primitive and fragile. In order to protect ourselves, we are genetically wired to perceive danger and impending threats to our physical

well-being. We are wired to act according to our perceptions in order to maintain not only our own body, but the genetic heritage of future generations. And we are also wired to recover from the fear and return to a state of homeostasis. It is a beautiful system designed to insure the basic survival of the organism – you. Perhaps you know hyperarousal by another name - the fight-flight syndrome. It is a physiological reaction that happens in response to a perceived attack or threat to survival. In primitive times, if you confronted a saber-tooth tiger or some other beast, you had two choices. You could run as fast as possible to get away from the danger. Or, you could choose to find a weapon and put up a fight. Your

body reacts to fear, perceived or real, with a discharge of the sympathetic nervous system, releasing norepinephrine and epinephrine to create a boost of energy and muscle response. Your body releases cortisol, which increases blood pressure and blood sugar. Estrogen and testosterone are released, along with the neurotransmitters HYPERAROUSAL, See page 12A

Creating Happiness Aspects Galore

By Sue Hines Life, Liberty and the Pursuit… Is happiness in your power or is it something that comes to you? One of the greatest developments of the last century, in my opinion, is the rise of “Positive Psychology.” The underlying principle this field has validated is that the lens through which you view the world shapes your reality. Your external world does not dictate your happiness! Yes! The truly wonderful thing about what they have discovered is that your happiness is up to you! In his TEDX talk, Harvard lecturer on the subject, Shawn Achor, blasts the mental model many people have: Working hard -> leads to Success Having success -> leads to being Happy

Instead, he points out that science shows, and every great parent knows: It is your positive attitude that leads to positive outcomes in your life (AKA Success). Achor’s colleague, Dan Gilbert, has shown that we are wired to create happiness. We don’t need to wait for it to find us or for conditions to be “right” to allow it to appear in our lives. It is not a “tomorrowthing” and it is not dependent on outside conditions. Our own happiness is up to us! Here are Gilbert’s 5 PROVEN WAYS to increase your happiness level in 21 Days: 1. At the end of each day, write down 3 new things you are grateful for 2. Journal about 1 positive thing that happened in the past 24 hours 3. Exercise for 40 minutes (even if it is 2 x 20 minutes)

4. Daily meditation 5. A daily act of kindness But happy for no reason is not good enough to positively affect your health, but having a sense of meaning will contribute to your physical well-being, even if you are not happy. They overlap, but there is a difference between “feeling happy” and the “wellbeing” that comes from having a sense of meaning. Research shows a sense of meaning more reliably translates into into physical wellness and resilience. Managing where you are NOW determines how happy and successful you will be tomorrow. The secret to actively managing now is to realize the meaning of this moment. 3 Ways to discovering or filling any moment of your life with meaning: HAPPINESS, See page 12A

From page 1A Holmes said she stayed in a total five homes. Holmes was in the program from 16-years-old until 21 when she aged out. “My greatest comfort was prayer,” Holmes said. “My situation had become pretty depressing and the isolation was overwhelming. So, I turned to God. “I felt like I had nowhere else to go and that all of these things had to be happening for a reason. I refused to think that God allowed me to endure tragedy, pain, abuse, or neglect for it to just end with depression and isolation.” Holmes was a junior in high school when she decided to turn her life around. One of the keys to her success was Linda and Edward Brown, who adopted her at age 17. She still calls them her parents. She graduated from high school at the top of

her class and enrolled in 2003 in her dream school, Spelman College. While volunteering at career fair, she spoke to a U.S. Coast Guard recruiter and met Lt. Jeanie Menze, the first African-American female aviator in the Coast Guard. Holmes decided then she wanted to fly. “Flying had never even crossed my mind as an option of what I could do in

life,” she said. “It wasn’t until I met Jeanine, a brown girl like me, that I considered it. Jeanine completely changed the perception of what a pilot was in my mind. So, I knew I could at least give it a shot.” She joined the Coast Guard in 2003, graduated Spelman in 2007, graduated from Officer Candidate School in 2008 and at the BARRIERS, See page 12A

ACCJC reaffirmed accreditation to Ventura County Community College District colleges, Feb. 2017

VENTURA, Calif. – Following the accreditation visits from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC), in September 2016, Chancellor Bernard Luskin, is pleased to announce the commission reaffirmed accreditation for 18 months for Moorpark College, Oxnard College and Ventura College. After careful review of the In-

stitutional Self-Evaluation Reports and evidentiary materials submitted by each institution, the ACCJC determined that each college “is in substantial compliance” with Eligibility Requirements, Accreditation Standards and Commission policies for reaffirmation. An 18-month review of recommended improvements, noted in the evaluations, followed by a visit to each campus by Commission representatives will be

scheduled. “On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we are pleased with the findings of the ACCJC,” stated VCCCD Board Chair Bernardo Perez. “The Board is proud of the hard work the colleges put forth in the self-evaluation reports and look forward to supporting the college presidents in meeting any recommended improvements suggested by the ACCJC,” added Perez.

Debate on Sessions Nomination Explodes Over Coretta Scott King Letter

By Lauren Victoria Burke (NNPA Newswire Contributor) The United States Senate debate over Attorney General nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions (D-Ala.) boiled over into confusion and accusations on Tuesday, February 7 as Senate Democrats carried their opposition into an all-night long protest. But at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, February 7, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (DMass.) recited the words of a letter authored by Coretta Scott King, the late widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., that’s been in the Senate record for over 20 years, the

Coretta Scott King

drama hit an all-new level. The Senate floor fiasco would lead to the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) releasing a blistering statement late in the

evening calling the episode “disgusting” and evoking the name of Civil Rights Era villain and unrepentant racist Bull Connor. Republican Sen. Jim Risch (R-Idaho) objected to Warren’s reading of a 1986 letter by King’s widow, because it was critical of Sessions back when he was a prosecutor. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) became the face of Risch’s objection, and rose to object to Warren’s reading of the Coretta Scott King letter. McConnell asserted that the letter violated a Senate rule prohibiting DEBATE, See page 12A

Blacks Feel Ignored by the Democratic Party

By Lauren Victoria Burke (NNPA Newswire Contributor) Cornell Belcher, the CEO of Brilliant Corners Research, said that it’s no surprise that Black voters have presented a very clear mandate to the Congressional Black Caucus to oppose the Trump Administration, because 92 percent of African Americans voted against President Trump. “However, to maintain this broad level of support among African American voters, Democrats more broadly will have to reevaluate the way they are engaging this critical section of [their] base,” Belcher said in a statement on February 9. Belcher made a presentation and presented his new study to members of the Congressional Black Caucus at their retreat on February 7. House Democrats then departed to Baltimore for their annual three-day retreat the next day. Belcher’s phone survey questioned 601 African Americans, at least 18 years-old, and registered to vote; the survey was conducted from January 4-8. The results of the Belcher survey showed that African American voters were dissatisfied with President Trump and the direction of the coun-

try, and want more drastic tactics used to fight programs and policies that negatively impact their communities. The results also showed that protecting social security, reforming the criminal justice system, keeping the country safe from terrorists and other issues are priorities for African Americans. “African Americans are the Democratic Party’s most loyal voters and they should be treated as such,” said Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), the chairman of the CBC, regarding the new study. “The results of this survey are clear marching orders for the

Congressional Black Caucus — African Americans want Democrats to stop using the same old playbook and to make substantive progress on the issues that affect their communities.” Here are some of the findings from Belcher’s study: • A large majority of African American voters (63 percent) feel taken for granted by the Democratic Party. This startling majority represents a growing problem among one of the most critical components of Democrats winning coalition. The outcome of the 2016 election IGNORED, See page 12A

State News Assemblymember McCarty Releases Jackson Reintroduces Bill To Clean Up Statement in Response to LAO Report Beaches By Plugging Old, Leaking Oil Wells

SACRAMENTO - Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento), Chair of the Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Education Finance released the following statement in response to the Legislative Analyst Office's (LAO) report, "Creating a Debt Free College Program." "The LAO's report on debt free college provides a number encouraging options to help our state's students achieve the California dream," said Assemblymember McCarty. This report provides a clear policy road map and potential budget options to fulfill a top legislative priority - making college more affordable and reducing the

mountain of debt that many students incur. I look forward to working with my colleagues, the administration, and stakeholders in the months ahead to make college accessible and afford-

able for all Californians." Assemblymember McCarty included the LAO report on creating a debt free college program as part of the 2016-17 Budget Act. A summary of the Legislative Analyst's Report can be viewed here: http://lao.ca.gov/reports/2017/3540/Debt-FreeCollege-013117.pdf. A joint hearing of the Assembly Budget Sub-Committee on Education Finance and the Assembly Higher Education Committee to discuss the LAO report will be held on Monday, February 27, 2017, upon adjournment of Assembly Floor Session in Room 447 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

SACRAMENTO – The State Water Resources Control Board extended its existing water conservation regulations, which prohibit wasteful practices such as watering lawns right after rain and set a conservation mandate only for water suppliers that do not have enough water reserves to withstand three more dry years. “These regulations have helped Californians rise to the occasion and show what they can do with conservation, while providing flexibility based on differing local water supply conditions across the state,” said Chair Felicia Marcus. “We are beyond happy that water conditions continue to improve this year, but the rainy season isn’t over yet and some areas of the state continue to suffer significant drought

impacts. As glorious as the first half of the season has been, we know that weather can change quickly, and vary depending on where you are, so it is most prudent to wait a bit longer until close of the rainy season to take stock of the statewide situation and decide what to do next.” While many parts of the state have benefited from this year’s rain and snow, other areas continue to experience the effects of drought, including Central Valley communities that still depend on water tanks and bottled water. Groundwater, the source of at least a third of California’s water supplies, remains significantly depleted in many areas. California has undergone more than five years of extreme drought with significant impacts to communities, agriculture, and fish and wildlife.

Today’s decision maintains existing conservation rules, which transitioned away from specific statemandated conservation standards last May for urban water suppliers that could demonstrate they have enough water reserves to withstand an additional three dry years. The majority of suppliers passed this “stress test” and have not been subject to state conservation mandates. Under the extended regulation, urban water suppliers that didn’t take or didn’t pass the “stress test” and have been subject to state-set standards are given an opportunity to update their analysis. To learn about all the actions the state has taken to manage our water system and cope with the impacts of the drought, visit Drought.CA.Gov.

State Water Board Continues Water Conservation Regulations, Prohibitions Against Wasting Water

SACRAMENTO – State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) is continuing her efforts to protect California beaches by reintroducing a bill to monitor and cap California’s old, abandoned and leaking oil wells. Senate Bill 44, the Coastal Oil Well Clean Up and Remediation Act, would require that the California State Lands Commission plug very old "orphaned" oil wells in California waters when the original oil company that operated the well is out of business and cannot be held responsible. SB 44 is the reintroduction of a bill Jackson carried in 2016 that was vetoed by Governor Brown. Research completed by the State Lands Commission in 2016 identified approximately 200 improperly capped “orphan” oil wells that risk contaminating our coastal waters through the continual seepage of oil. The vast majority of these so-called ‘legacy’ wells in California are located along the Summerland and Ellwood beaches in Santa Barbara County and along the Central Coast. “No one hoping to take

State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson

a peaceful walk along the beach wants to find themselves or their family members stepping into black, toxic gunk instead, “ said Jackson. “Oil is toxic, it is a carcinogen, it leads to poor air quality, and it is unsafe for wildlife. We don’t want it on our beaches, soiling a place of beauty and economic vitality, nor do we want it near our children, our out-of-town visitors, or our fish, birds and marine life. To the extent we can prevent having our beaches soiled by it, we should. I look forward to working with the Governor this year to get this bill passed."

Jackson’s bill was originally inspired by the influx of oil onto Summerland Beach, south of Santa Barbara, which continues to prompt health warnings and beach closures. The oil is believed to be coming from the Becker Onshore Well and other similar wells dating back to the 1890s, long before the creation of regulatory agencies and requirements about how to properly cap unused wells, and is believed to have been leaking oil for decades. The company that operated that well is now out of business. During the 2016 legislative session, Governor Brown approved $700,000 in funding in the state budget to remediate the Becker Onshore Well. It is estimated that the State Lands Commission will be able to start remediation of the Becker well by 2018. SB 44 redirects up to $2 million dollars annually to a fund set aside for the remediation of additional improperly abandoned legacy wells. With this fund, the Commission can begin identifying which old wells are leaking oil and prioritize addressing the highest risk wells first. The first hearing for the bill has not yet been set.

Assemblymember Bill Brough Seeks

Legislation to Establish Ronald Reagan Holiday SACRAMENTO -- Assemblyman Bill Brough (RDana Point) will introduce legislation this year to formally observe February 6th as a state holiday: the birthdate of former President of the United States and Governor of California, Ronald Reagan. “Ronald Reagan is more than a favorite son of

Assemblyman Bill Brough

the Golden State, he is an historic leader of our state and nation,” said Brough. “He deserves the same honor that California has bestowed on many others.” While February 6th is designated annually as “Ronald Reagan Day”,

Brough’s measure would designate a holiday for all state employees and schools, akin to several others already established by California. He also noted that Texas and Missouri celebrate President Lyndon Johnson day and President Harry Truman day, respectively. “No Californian in the 20th century represented our state and nation with more vision, dignity and moral purpose,” said Brough. “This is an ideal opportunity to fittingly pay tribute to the historic accomplishments of our 33rd Governor and 40th President, as well as truly appreciate the extraordinary Reagan legacy that continues to guide and inform public leaders and policymakers throughout America and all around the world.”

Statement from Treasurer John Chiang on CalSTRS Vote to Lower Discount Rate SACRAMENTO -- State Treasurer John Chiang released the following statement after today’s vote by the CalSTRS Board to lower the pension plan’s discount rate: "California teachers, perhaps more than any other profession, possess the power to influence our future. They prepare the next great minds, the generations we will look to for solutions to our most pressing challenges, from climate change to income inequality and affordable housing. “Study after study shows teaching is a greater factor in student achievement than any other aspect of schooling. But to retain and recruit talented educators, we must preserve a pathway to retirement security. Today’s vote helps to successfully ensure that path remains within the reach of current and future teachers. “By creating a more fis-

State Treasurer John Chiang

cally stable system, we are keeping our promise to our teachers to safeguard their hard-earned benefits for years to come so that they and future teachers will continue to provide years of service to our children and the future of California.” For more news, please follow the Treasurer on Twitter at @CalTreasurer, and on Facebook at California State Treasurer's Office.

Black boy joy is real,” the kids say. “Black support is real. Black excellence is real. Black love, that’s real.” Responding to more “alternative facts,” they

also note, “Black history didn’t begin with slavery, and it doesn’t end with the Obamas.”

Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast Receives Grant from the Amgen Foundation

Ventura, CA – Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast (GSCCC), with the support of a $15,000 grant from the Amgen Foundation, today announced the launch of the 2017 Imagine Your STEM Future program, which will provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities to approximately 325 low-income girls, ages 5-18 in Ventura County. The Amgen Foundation seeks to advance excellence in science education to inspire the next generation of innovators, and invest in strengthening communities where Amgen staff members live and work.

“We are very excited to implement the Imagine program thanks to the continued generous support from the Amgen Foundation,” said Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast Interim CEO Jody Skenderian. “This program will enable Ventura County girls to participate in a variety of STEM-related activities to inspire them and to foster exploration of their interests as they will learn about future career opportunities in these fastgrowing, lucrative fields.” The goal of the Imagine program is to expand girls’ STEM skills as they enjoy hands-on experiments, ex-

plore STEM careers, and care for their environment with the help of a strong network of volunteers. Girl Scouts helps foster a lifelong passion for STEM and inquiry-based learning as girls engage in cooperative partnerships— working together to solve problems, conduct experiments, and plan and implement STEM-based projects. Whether girls want to learn how to build a robot, a catapult, or participate in global conservation efforts, Girl Scout programs helps them imagine their STEM future with help from grantors such as the Amgen Foundation.

Sports News Stephen Curry says to expect him at the FIBA World Cup and 2020 Olympics Stephen Curry

By Eric Freeman Like many of the NBA’s best players, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry did not travel to Rio de Janeiro to represent his country in the 2016 Summer Olympics. After a grueling season in which he set virtually every three-point record imaginable and injured himself during the playoffs, the back-to-back MVP and two-time FIBA World Cup gold medalist opted not to participate in Brazil. That decision only put Curry on the same level as such terrific players as LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and Chris Paul, but it was certainly notable nonetheless. Fans certainly missed him, even if Team USA didn’t need him to capture gold. Thankfully, Curry has good news for anyone hoping to see him in red, white, and blue while

he’s still in his prime. In a new interview at FIBA.com, the sport’s preeminent perimeter threat says he intends to play at both the 2019 World Cup in China and the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo: “The way it went down this past year with the injury, it was the right decision,” Curry said to FIBA.com in his hometown of Charlotte, where he recently played for the Golden State Warriors against the Hornets. “It was a tough one because I put a lot of equity into playing for Team USA and was looking forward to playing for the Olympic team for the first time. “The decision for me personally was that it was best not to play, and to get ready for the season, to get healthy. “Going forward, I do plan on playing at the World Cup (in 2019 in China), being healthy and being in a good position to be in Tokyo.” “I love playing for the USA,” he said. “It was taking a lot not to be out there (last year). It’s just different and you get to play with the best in the NBA against the best in the world. It’s important to note the venue here — Curry wouldn’t tell a FIBA entity that he hates international basketball — but his statement still seems pretty strong. Big-name players have pulled out of international tournaments with relatively minor injuries before, but most of them don’t commit to them more than two years ahead of time. LeBron, for instance, usually puts his participation in the Olympics up in the air until a few months before the event starts. Plus, it would make sense for a big star like Curry to want to add an Olympic gold medal to his résumé. Curry had a good chance to make the 2012 Olympic team as a shooting threat, but he missed 40 of the 2011-12 season’s 66 games with ankle trouble and never got serious consideration because of it. At 28 years old, Curry lacks only that medal among major basketball accolades. Yet one of the more compelling reason for Curry to play in these tournaments has little to do with basketball. Legitimately competitive events in China and Japan represent a big chance for him and other superstars to expand their global brands. Frankly, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the majority of the NBA’s big stars play in the next World Cup and Olympics. Representing your country is nice, but there’s no substitute for that kind of exposure.

Cavaliers “backing far away” from Colin Kaepernick to opt out of 49ers contract, enter free agency Carmelo Anthony trade

By Kurt Helin Kevin Love is not completely off the table. There are maybe 10 guys in the entire NBA for which there is no price to make a trade work. However, Love falls into that next tier of “in theory you can get him but in reality there is no way another team would actually give up enough to make a deal.” Carmelo Anthony is not enough. Not close. No sane GM is moving a 28-yearold, at his peak Love for 33-year-old and declining Anthony. And the Cavaliers are not interested in a Love for ‘Melo swap, reports Joe Varden of the Cleveland

Carmelo Anthony

Plain Dealer. Multiple sources with knowledge of the Cavs’ thinking are also backing far away from a potential trade for Anthony. It doesn’t mean a deal for Anthony is

entirely out of the question. Just mostly out. So a deal for Love would have to make the Cavs better. Who they could acquire for Love and his huge contract that would actually improve the team is a small group. In fact, the Cavs would be more likely to seek multiple, gifted role players in return for Love who could play behind LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, instead of alongside them. While the Cavs will not rule out trading Love (the only player entirely off limits, in any scenario, is James), several sources said it’s highly unlikely he’s moved by the Feb. 23 trade deadline.

By Shalise Manza Young It’s not a surprise, given that he tried to get out of San Francisco last year and restructured his contract during the season, but Colin Kaepernick is expected to opt out of his deal with the 49ers and become a free agent, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. Kaepernick has about a month before he can make the move official; Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group writes that the optout period is March 2-7. As Inman notes, Kaepernick parting ways with the 49ers, who drafted him in the second round in 2011, has seemed inevitable since October, when the deal the two sides signed in 2015

Colin Kaepernick

was revised, allowing either Kaepernick or the 49ers to terminate the 2017 season. Kaepernick is scheduled to make $14.5 million in base salary in 2017 if he plays under the existing terms. If he hits the free agent market, it would be the first time in Kaepernick’s career he’s been able to do so. After leading San Fran-

cisco to the NFC championship game in 2012 and then the Super Bowl in 2013, Kaepernick and the 49ers went 8-8 in 2014, after which then-general manager Trent Baalke decided to fire head coach Jim Harbaugh, who had drafted Kaepernick and orchestrated the onceproud franchise’s revival. In 2015, Kaepernick lost his starting job when he and the team faltered; he underwent multiple surgeries in the offseason, then returned to the starting job in October. He completed 59.2 percent of his passes for 2,241 yards with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions, adding 468 yards and two touchdowns rushing, though San Francisco was 1-10 in his starts (the team was just 2-14 for the season, with Baalke and head coach Chip Kelly fired).

Showtime-HBO boxing war could come down to who wins Klitschko-Joshua rights

Anthony Joshua (l.) and Wladimir Klitschko pose together during a media conference at Wembley Stadium on Dec. 14.

By Kevin Iole It isn’t even a question at this point which television network should be considered the home of boxing in the U.S. It’s clearly, and easily, Showtime. The premium cable network has a commitment to the sport that HBO, its long-time rival, currently doesn’t have. HBO is far more committed these days to pay-per-view boxing cards than anything else, and is quickly becoming an afterthought otherwise. Because of its subscriber base – HBO has roughly 32 million, while Showtime is approaching 25 million – HBO can never be counted out when there is a big fight

that both it and Showtime are angling to broadcast. HBO’s commitment to boxing, though, will be proven in the next few days or weeks, when U.S. rights are finalized for the heavyweight title bout between IBF champion Anthony Joshua and former world champion Wladimir Klitschko that will be held in Wembley Stadium in London on April 29. More than 80,000 tickets are already sold for the bout and there will ultimately be more than 90,000 in attendance. If Showtime wins the rights to the fight, it’s going to be a serious statement and it could have long-range implications for boxing fans.

National News Women’s March Organizers Are Planning A ‘Day Without A Woman’

By Alanna Vagianos On Monday, February 6, the Women’s March announced on Instagram that there will be a “general strike.” The Instagram post is simple and gives little to no information, reading: “General strike: A day without a woman. Date To Be Announced.” The caption reads: “The will of the people will stand.” Although details about the strike are scarce ― the above Instagram post appears to be the only information that has been made public, and Women’s March organizers did not respond to The Huffington Post’s request for comment ― the general reaction has

been largely positive. The initial Instagram post had already received more than 17,000 likes. The Women’s March also posted the news on Twitter and Facebook, where many users commented in support of a strike. Many celebrities retweeted the news in support. “Hit ‘em in the wallet,” writer and comedian Corinne Fisher wrote on Twitter. Feminist writer Jessica Valenti added: “I am so here for this.” This is not the first postelection strike aimed at engaging women. On Inauguration Day, more than 7,000 people participated in an organized Women’s Strike to protest President

Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Paulina Davis, vice chair of the New York chapter of the feminist group National Women’s Liberation and one of the strike’s organizers, told HuffPost in January that they hoped to have as many as 20,000 participants. Although the strike didn’t reach the lofty goal, Davis explained how impactful a strike can be. “If 20,000 women pledge, it’s a show of force. If 20,000 women say, ‘I’m not going to work today,’ people are going to feel that,” she said. “They’re going to feel that in the work place and they’re going to feel it at home.”

Langston Hughes’ Harlem Home Is Officially For The People

By Rahel Gebreyes Harlem artists and writers can finally call Langston Hughes’ home their own. The I, Too, Arts Collective, named for Hughes’ poem “I, Too,” held an opening event Wednesday evening at Hughes’ Harlem brownstone and invited the community to mingle, have refreshments and check out its new space. There was reason to celebrate. Not only was it Hughes’ birthday, but Wednesday marked the culmination of a monthslong process to lease the home in which the poet lived for his final 20 years. The brownstone first caught the eye of the collective’s founder and executive director Renee Watson when she moved to Harlem from Portland, Oregon more than a decade ago. She was disappointed to find out the home was neither a museum nor community center. In June 2016, she decided to take matters into her own hands. “I was tired of waiting on someone to do something with this space,” Watson told The Huffington Post. Watson found the owner of the brownstone, who told her that if she could raise the funds to lease it for a year, her newly founded non-profit could take over the space. The collective raised $150,000 goal through an online fundraising campaign, several separate donations and donation matching in a month and signed the lease in October. The brownstone, which will house workshops,

Ultimately, Watson wants to provide a springboard for budding authors to get their work published and carry on Hughes’ legacy of “generosity and hope.”

Langston Hughes

open mic nights, poetry salons, discussions with authors and more, opened during a time of serious change in Harlem. With rents skyrocketing and big businesses moving in, the grassroots action to lease the space marks a small victory for the community. “It’s a testament to wanting to hold onto Harlem,” she said. “And just make sure that we also take care of the history here and that we guard it [fiercely].” Given the current political climate, having a place for artists of color to come appreciate Hughes’ work and be inspired to create their own is especially important, Watson said. “[Artists of color have] always responded through art when stuff is happening in the world,” she said. “We are the rebukers. We are the people who are going to put on record the truth of what’s happening and document our experiences.” She also hopes the space can act as a “safe haven” and provide opportunities for self-care. The collective plans to have open forums, writing circles and healing spaces for those who need to step back from “the struggle.”

Teens Who Graffitied Historic Black School With Swastikas

Sentenced To Visit Holocaust Museum

A volunteer group painting the exterior of the Ashburn Colored School, a nineteenthcentury schoolhouse vandalized with racist symbols and hate language, on Oct. 09, 2016 in Ashburn, VA.

By Sebastian Murdock A group of Virginia teens convicted of spray-painting an historic black church with swastikas and “white power” have been sentenced to visit the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. The five boys, all 16 or 17, will also read books from Jewish, black and Afghan authors, and write a research paper on hate speech, The Washington Post reported. They were also sentenced to listen to an interview with a former student of Ashburn Colored School, which they vandalized. At their sentencing earlier this week, Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Alex Rueda argued that the boys were likely motivated by

ignorance, not racial hatred. Three of the five are minorities who also wrote “brown power” on the building, and none had previously been in trouble with the law, according to The Washington Post. All pleaded guilty to unlawful entry and destruction of property. The Ashburn Colored School opened in 1892 for black students who had been forbidden by law to attend school with white students. The school remained open until the late 1950s after the Supreme Court banned segregated education. Prior to the defacement of the building in September, local students were working to restore the school and open it as a museum.

Volunteers were able to raise more than $70,000 to restore the building after the the school was covered in graffiti. It now has a fresh coat of paint, new windows and restored siding. Along with a research paper detailing “the message that swastikas and white power messages on African American schools or houses of worship send to the African American community as well as the broader community,” the boys will also write papers on the books they read, Rueda said. Those titles include Elie Wiesel’s Night, Ta-Nehisi Coates’ The Beautiful Struggle and books by other eminent authors including Toni Morrison and Khaled Hosseini.

Use Technology For Attracting Serious Home Buyers

smartphones. Enhance your Home Surveillance Home security systems have always dabbled in the high-tech world of smart automation. In the past, most alarms simply triggered an annoying sound and contacted the police at signs of danger. Today, home security cameras keep an eye on the inside and outside of the home with wireless cameras. A wireless camera system can be mounted to the wall or ceiling and monitored remotely. Home buyers are sure to be wowed by its sleek and discreet design. Some home security companies, like Lorex Technology, even offer subscription-free monitoring options, yet another attractive feature for potential buyers.

Go High-Tech Culinary Updating a kitchen has always been a recommended way to raise a home’s price tag and attract buyers. But affluent home shoppers are looking for more than just new appliances and chef’s kitchens. The latest technology trends include no-touch faucets and smart refrigerators that can alert you when you’re running low on groceries. Other high-tech touches like Bluetooth smart cooking thermometers tell your mobile device when your food is ready to create perfect dishes every time. Upgrade your Luxury Entertainment Just about every home has a flat-screen television; some piped for surround sound and home theaters. Take your entertaining to a new level by controlling everything from one device like Savant. You can adjust the lighting, change the channel on your smart TV and turn on music. A system like Savant can also help monitor your home’s security and adjust the climate as needed. While getting ready upstairs for an evening with friends, you can adjust the entertainment area and living room downstairs to create a luxurious atmosphere.

(NewsUSA) - Just started a new job with an employer who thinks you're as visionary as Steve Jobs? Or maybe you're between gigs and "exploring other opportunities." Either way, you need to decide what to do with your old 401(k). It's been estimated that there are about 15 million such accounts left behind by former employees, mainly because of either inertia or plain confusion over strict rules for moving the money. And since the IRS doesn't allow procrastinating on a key decision -- if you withdraw even a dime, you've got just 60 days to reallocate into a different tax-advantaged account -- here's a rundown of your options to avoid what could be a costly mistake: • Option No. 1: Cash Out Unless you're in dire financial straits and really, really need the bucks to live off, the consensus is this is a bad idea. "Cashing out comes with an immediate price, both in terms of giving up potential future gains in your portfolio and in the IRS taxes the company handling your 401(k) for your former employer is legally obliged to withhold," explains Nupur Bahal, vice president for retirement at Fidelity Investments. "That's money you won't have for retirement." Yes, the government

must have its cut. Specifically, 20 percent in federal income taxes, 10 percent in an "early-withdrawal penalty" for those under age 59, and -- wait, we're not done yet -- whatever additional percentage your individual state may or may not assess. Translating that into real money, Fidelity's website (fidelity.com) uses the hypothetical example of a 36-year-old who decides to cash out the $16,000 balance in her account. After deducting just the federal taxes and penalties, she'd be left with only $11,200. Feel free to imagine how much you'd be out if your account is fatter. • Option No. 2: Move the Money to Your New Employer's Plan Doing what's called a "rollover" is an easy way to keep your 401(k) savings together and growing tax-deferred. But bear in mind: Investment options vary from plan to plan -- as do fees. (And

not all employers even accept rollovers.) Which means you might want to do some comparison shopping before committing. • Option No. 3: Move the Money Into an IRA As with the previous rollover, you get to avoid the tax bite of cashing out. The difference here, though -- and these could be major plusses -- is that not only do IRAs offer more investment choices than the typical 401(k), but you're also able to make penalty-free withdrawals for qualified education expenses or up to $10,000 for a firsttime home purchase. "Especially if you already have other, non-401(k) accounts elsewhere, it may be simpler and more effective to consolidate everything under one roof," says Bahal. • Option No. 4: Leave It With Your Ex-Employer Penalty-free withdrawals are allowed for those who leave their jobs at age 55 or older -- as opposed to 59? for IRAs -- and unique investment options might warrant just letting things ride. But some people forget the account exists with the passage of time -- no, really -- and further contributions are verboten. Whatever you decide, remember the clock is definitely ticking for you to contact your old 401(k) administrator should you choose to withdraw even that one dime.

Depending on where you live, saving for a down payment can take several years of financial planning. For example, in some markets, it may take the average person nearly a decade to save enough to buy a home. In California, that especially rings true. California is home to four of the five cities on a recent list by SmartAsset of the places where it takes the longest to save for a down payment: San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose, and San Diego. SmartAsset scanned the data on median home

prices and median household income in the 15 largest cities in the U.S. From there, researchers calculated how long it would take for a household to save enough for a 20 percent down payment if consumers saved 20 percent of their incomes. (Note: Buyers are not required to have 20 percent down for a mortgage. It’s often recommended, but buyers can take advantage of several other low-down payment loan offerings.) Here’s how many years buyers can expect to wait to save enough to afford a

20 percent down payment in these cities: 1. San Francisco, Calif.: 9.84 years 2. Los Angeles, Calif.: 9.38 3. New York, N.Y.: 9.27 4. San Jose, Calif.: 7.20 5. San Diego, Calif.: 7.01 6. Chicago, Ill.: 4.59 7. Austin, Texas: 4.17 8. Philadelphia, Pa.: 3.80 9. Phoenix, Ariz.: 3.45 10. Dallas, Texas: 3.09 11. Jacksonville, Fla.: 2.92 12. Houston, Texas: 2.85 13. Columbus, Ohio: 2.83 14. Indianapolis, Ind.: 2.82 15. San Antonio, Texas: 2.50

But luxury homebuyers are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.

This Anti-Bullying App Helps You Brighten Someone’s Day In Seconds

By Hayley Miller Austin Kevitch was in high school when he first came up with the idea for an app that would allow users to send compliments to each other anonymously. But it wasn’t until tragedy struck years later that he decided to turn that idea into reality. Kevitch was studying abroad in South Africa when his friend, Oliver Pacchiana, died in a rock climbing accident. Soon after, positive and loving messages flooded Pacchiana’s Facebook wall. The tributes moved Kevitch deeply, and he imagined how much they would have meant to his friend if he’d received them while he was alive. “Just hearing one of those comments could change your life,” said Kevitch, now 25 and the CEO of the app Brighten. “I learned a lot about him just from what people were sharing. It was a wake-up call that the world needs something like [Brighten].” Today, Kevitch runs Brighten out of Santa Monica, California, with a six-person staff. The app,

downloaded over 1 million times since its 2015 release, allows users to send out anonymous compliments called “brightens,” although Kevitch says most people choose to identify themselves. Users can also send a snapshot of their smile to the person who complimented them. Social media can be a minefield of anxiety for many, so Kevitch has made it his mission to create a space that’s focused on spreading positivity. “It’s all about establishing a positive culture,” he said. “No one is inherently bad. People just have bad days and project that negativity onto someone else.” The positivity is now spreading through communities and classrooms, with many educators embracing the app as an anti-bullying tool. Brighten recently partnered with the gun violence prevention organization Sandy Hook Promise for “Start With Hello Week,” a weeklong effort to fight social isolation. Students in more than 1,700 schools

will be introduced to the app. More than 20 percent of students ages 12 to 18 report being bullied, according to a 2015 survey conducted by the Department of Education. Anti-bullying expert Dr. Malcolm Smith is optimistic about Brighten’s “power to use social media to do good,” though he is hesitant to embrace the app’s anonymity feature as a way to combat cyberbullying. “Anytime a child can say something positive to someone ― even if it’s someone they don’t know ― it causes a very positive brain interaction,” Smith said of the app. “But it’s so much better for a person’s soul to give compliments in person.” First lady Melania Trump announced her desire to tackle online bullying in November. Though President Donald Trump frequently engages in cyberbullying on Twitter, Kevitch said he would gladly partner with the White House if it would spark positive change in society at large.

By Charles Blain The more we rely on technology, the more detailed a technological footprint we leave behind. A recent study from Deloitte shows that, on average, American millennials check their phones roughly 82 times a day. This dependence on technology has led to a world where most people are never more than a few feet away from their cell phone at any given time. Being constantly connected to the world is one of the many benefits of our advanced society, but unfortunately, privacy regulations haven’t kept pace with the advances we’ve made. Your cell phone records every location you visit if the phone’s location services are turned on, which is more often than not. Called cell-site location information, this data is tracked on both Android devices and iPhones. The information can be quite telling; it might show the location of your home, your office, and other places you visit often. The problem is that it can teach police about a person’s behavior and then can be used against them. In some states, the data can be used without a warrant. Across the country police are using this data to track and catch suspects, and the resulting cases are often challenged in court. Since it’s collected by cellular service providers, the data falls under what’s known as the third-party doctrine, which states that by giving information to a third party — banks, internet service providers, email servers, or in this

case, phone companies — users have no reasonable expectation to privacy. Still, suspects in these types of cases often claim that by accessing their cell phone data without probable cause or a warrant, law enforcement is violating their Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure. In some instances courts have agreed with these arguments, resulting in a patchwork of guidance governing how the data can be used. For instance, in Commonwealth v. Augustine, Massachusetts’ highest court ruled that the government’s acquisition of this data should require a warrant. Meanwhile, four Courts of Appeals have opined on the issue, and only one, the Fourth Court of Appeals, deemed it necessary for government to obtain a warrant first. These divergent rulings mean that a person could travel to four different states and have widely varying levels of privacy protection for the information collected in each places. In some instances, location-specific data can be fully protected, in others not at all. In one state, law enforcement may only be able

to access historical data, and in another they may be able to track a person in real-time. Six states — California, Utah, Montana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Maine — currently require a warrant for all cell-site location information. Illinois, New Jersey, and Indiana require warrants for realtime tracking only. Thirtythree states have no binding authority or explicitly allow for law enforcement to access this data without a warrant. That is more than half of US states that offer no protection for extremely personal information. Because of this hodgepodge of regulation, or lack thereof, police often claim authority to access this information without a warrant. The absence of consistent protections for citizens opens up the opportunity for rampant abuse by law enforcement. Congress has yet to regulate this area and the Supreme Court hasn’t weighed in, but, legislatures across this country are taking up the issue and pushing for broader protections for civilians.

Police Could Get Your Location Data Without A Warrant. That Has To End.

Spotlight on Health:

By Jessica Migala Rise and shine! Here’s how to make the first hour the best part of your day. Skip the news Starting your day already stressed? Blame the bad news. In a 2014 poll, 40 percent of those who said they were under a great deal of stress pinpointed this top reason: watching or listening to the news. The negativity may make you worried and anxious before you have to tackle the stressors in your own life. Stay informed, but consider listening to a book on tape or podcast during your commute to keep you on an even keel. Pump up your breakfast It’s easy to get protein at lunch (turkey sandwich) and dinner (salmon and veggies), but people often skimp at breakfast (toast and fruit). Eating more protein during the day, including breakfast, is linked to less body fat, better muscle function and better blood sugar control, research shows. A few higher protein morning options: Greek yogurt, cottage cheese and hardboiled eggs. Throw open the shades Now this is a reason to love a good sunrise. A 2014 PLOS One study found that more early morning light exposure is associated with lower body fat, possibly because it resets your circadian rhythm, which could boost your metabolism. Heading outdoors is best, but at the very least

Hypoglycemia, also called low blood glucose or low blood sugar, is a condition that occurs when the body’s blood glucose decreases and is too low. Hypoglycemia is defined as a blood glucose level below 70 mg/dl. Hypoglycemia may range from mild to moderate (60-70 mg/dl) with few or no symptoms, to severe hypoglycemia with very low levels of glucose. What Causes Hypoglycemia? Hypoglycemia can be a side effect of insulin or other types of diabetes medicines that help your body make more insulin. Hypoglycemia can occur in people with diabetes for many reasons. For example, blood glucose can drop if meals are skipped, delayed or are too small; too much insulin or oral medications; increased amounts of exercise or activity; or excessive alcohol consumption. Symptoms and Management of Hypoglycemia Symptoms of hypoglycemia include shakiness, dizziness, sweating, hunger, headache, pale skin color, clumsiness, confusion, change in behavior, and seizure. Untreated, hypoglycemia can lead to unconsciousness and death. If you start to feel one or more of the symptoms of hypoglycemia, check your blood glucose levels. If your blood glucose level is less than 70 mg/dl, eat or drink 15 grams of carbohydrates right away. Food that will raise your blood glucose rapidly and have about 15 grams of carbohydrate include 2 to 3 glucose tablets, 4 ounces of fruit juice, 4 ounces of regu-

Seven Ways to Make Your Morning Healthier

open your shades to stream in lots of light. Prep coffee Your daily java packs big health perks. The latest: drinking at least four cups a day slashes your risk of melanoma by 20 percent, compared to the noncaffeinated set, per research in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Focus on your shower Morning meditation is helpful, but if you’re pressed for time, even getting in short bursts — called mindful meditation — can help brain areas responsible for memory and stress, say Harvard researchers. “Mindfulness” means being aware of sensations in the moment, like focusing in the shower on the feel of the warm water

on your skin and the smell of your body wash. Turn up the tunes Add energy to your morning routine with upbeat music. People who listened to positive tunes while trying to be happier and improve their mood reported more happiness after two weeks compared with a control group. Take a 10-minute walk Whether you do it outdoors or on a treadmill when the weather turns icky, commit to a short stint of activity. Overweight postmenopausal women who walked at a modest pace for only 74 minutes a week improved their quality of life (like mood and energy) compared with a sedentary group — whether they lost weight or not.

Fitter Seniors May Have Healthier Brains

By Robert Preidt Good heart and lung fitness can benefit older adults' brains, researchers report. They assessed the heart/ lung fitness of healthy young adults (aged 18 to 31) and older adults (aged 55 to 74), and compared their ability to learn and remember the names of strangers in photos. MRI scans recorded images of their brain activity as they learned the names. The older adults had more difficulty with the memory test than the young adults. But older adults with high levels of heart/lung fitness did better on the test and showed more brain activity when learning new names than those of their peers with lower levels of heart/lung fitness. The increased brain activity in those with higher levels of heart/lung fitness occurred in regions typi-

cally affected by age-related decline. The findings suggest that heart/lung fitness may also help keep the brain healthy as people get older, according to the researchers. But the study did not prove a cause-and-effect link. "Importantly, [heart/ lung fitness] is a modifiable health factor that can be improved through regular engagement in moderate to vigorous sustained physi-

cal activity such as walking, jogging, swimming or dancing," said study corresponding author Scott Hayes. He's an assistant professor of psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine. The researchers said high levels of fitness will not prevent brain decline, but may slow it. The findings were published recently in the journal Cortex.

Premature death rates in the United States have fallen for some groups but risen in others, a federal study says. Researchers looked at death certificate data from 1999 to 2014. They found that rates of premature death (between ages 25 to 64) declined among blacks, Hispanics and Asian/Pacific Islanders. At the same time, the rates went up for whites and American Indians/Alaska Natives. "Death at any age is devastating for those left behind, but premature death is especially so, in particular for children and parents," said study senior author Amy Berrington, from the U.S. National Cancer Insti-

tute. "Our study can be used to target prevention and surveillance efforts to help those groups in greatest need," she said in an agency news release. There were fewer deaths from cancer, heart disease and HIV for blacks, Hispanics and Asian/Pacific Islanders. Success in public health programs to reduce tobacco use is one reason for these drops. Another is medical advances to improve diagnosis and treatment, the researchers said. Despite these improvements, overall premature death rates are still higher among blacks than whites. Significant jumps in ac-

cidental deaths -- mainly drug overdoses -- were the primary reason for the increase in premature deaths among whites and American Indians/Alaska Natives. There were also increases in suicides and liver disease, the study reported. Death rates rose as much as 5 percent a year for 25to 30-year-old whites and American Indians/Alaska Natives during the study period. That's similar to increases seen at the height of the AIDS epidemic in the United States, researchers said. One positive trend was seen in whites -- cancer and heart disease deaths went down, the study found.

Rates of Early Deaths Rise for Whites, Drop for Blacks

Is Your Blood Sugar Dangerously Low? Symptoms Hiding In Plain Sight

lar soda, 1 cup of milk, 5 to 6 pieces of hard candy, or 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar or honey. Wait 15 minutes and then re-check your blood glucose level. If it is still too low, treat again with another serving. Repeat these steps until your blood sugar is at least 70 mg/dl. If your next meal is more than 1 hour away, have a snack to keep your blood glucose level in your target range. Try crackers or a piece of fruit. If you feel symptoms of hypoglycemia but are unable to check your blood glucose, then it is best to treat yourself than risk your glucose level going too low. The American Diabetes Association states, “When in doubt, treat.” The following actions can help prevent hypoglycemia: Check blood glucose levels. Knowing your blood glucose level can help you decide how much medicine

to take, what food to eat and how physically active to be. Eat regular meals and snacks. Your meal plan is key to preventing hypoglycemia. Eat regular meals and snacks with the correct amount of carbohydrates to help keep your blood glucose level from going too low. Ask your health care provider what to do if you often skip meals. Also, if you drink alcoholic beverages, limit to 1 to 2 drinks per day and eat some food at the same time. Be physically active safely. Physical activity helps your body better use insulin so if you are not careful you may experience hypoglycemia after exercising. Physical activity can lower your blood glucose during the activity and for hours afterward. It is important for you to check your blood glucose before and after exercising and may be necessary for you to test during exercise as well.

wards. Such advanced "dry powder" technology can deliver three to 50 times more drug to the lungs compared to current inhalers, while dramatically reducing the amount stuck in the mouth or throat. "It's like a pill for

the lungs," he says. Pulmatrix is now developing an inhaled bronchodilator product for COPD that combines the active ingredient found in Spiriva with its proprietary dry particles. Clinical trials show that the product is five times more efficient at delivering the drug to the lungs than the currently marketed alternatives. "That should bring both good efficiency and fewer side effects -- offering important benefits to COPD patients," says Dr. Edwards.

Harvard Scientist Says Improved Treatment Coming for COPD

(NewsUSA) - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) takes an enormous toll in human suffering and medical costs. More than 30 million Americans battle with frequent coughing, increased breathlessness, wheezing, and the other symptoms of the progressive lung disease. Most COPD patients have to take medications every day. As a result, inhaled drugs for COPD, such as Spiriva, have become blockbusters, bringing in billions of dollars a year in revenue. These particular drugs work by opening up airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. Unfortunately, the so-called bronchodilator drugs currently on the market have limitations, says Dr. David A. Edwards, Professor of the Practice of Idea Translation at Harvard University. "The main problem is that they are not very efficient at delivering drugs to the lungs," he explains. Much of the drug sticks in the mouth or throat rather than getting to the lungs where it is needed. In addition, says Dr. Edwards, "the fact that the drugs remain in the mouth and throat can lead to serious side effects." Which is why a number of companies have been working on innovative new approaches to increase the efficiency of drug delivery. "One particularly promising idea, being developed by Pulmatrix, Inc. [NASDAQ: PULM], is to attach drugs to small particles that can 'fly' far more easily into the lungs," says Dr. Ed-

Baldwin Documentary Why Naomie Harris Almost “I Am Not Your Negro” Receives Oscar Nod

By Lauren Victoria Burke (NNPA Newswire Contributor) On February 1, the first day of Black History Month, the National Museum of African American History and Culture premiered the Oscar-nominated documentary “I Am Not Your Negro,” which features commentary by James Baldwin. The film is a tribute to the staggering contribution of one of America’s greatest men of letters. Director Raoul Peck spent ten years completing the film. The documentary was inspired by one of Baldwin’s unfinished manuscripts regarding his friendships and views on three of his friends: Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. None of the three would live to see their 40th birthday. Medgar Evers was assassinated in 1963 in Jackson, Miss.; Malcolm X was assassinated in 1965 in New York City; King was assassinated in 1968 in Memphis, Tenn. At the heart of the film, the jarring documentary provides

James Baldwin

Baldwin’s sociopolitical observations and showcases the writer’s eloquence and directness as a communicator. Baldwin was an American social critic, novelist, essayist, playwright and poet. His essays, as collected in “Notes of a Native Son” (1955), explore issues of race and class differences in a poignant, sometimes provocative way. His books include “The Fire Next Time” (1963), “Giovanni’s Room” (1965), “No Name in the

Street” (1972), and “The Devil Finds Work” (1976). There hasn’t been anyone who has been able to duplicate the power of Baldwin since his death at 63 in France in 1987. Baldwin confronted the “moral monsters” of racism in the United States and dealt with the complex social and psychological pressures confronting Black people in America. Baldwin often challenged White Americans on the question of racism.

Turned Down ‘Moonlight’ Role

By Brennan Williams Naomie Harris says she initially “didn’t want to play a crack addict” in “Moonlight.” In an interview with The Telegraph, Harris opened up on why she was apprehensive to take on the role of the main character’s mother, Paula. The role earned Harris a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nod. Harris’ character suffers from drug addiction and is a single mom to a young boy named Chiron. Throughout the film Chiron struggles with discovering his identity in the impoverished neighborhood of Liberty City, Miami. “I feel that there are enough negative portrayals of women in general, and black women in particular,” she said. “I grew up with this really strong mother - really intelligent, powerful, independent - and I’ve always admired her. She was part of a group of strong, powerful women as well. I very rarely saw those women represented then. So I initially said no to the role.’” The British actress previously told “CBS This Morning” that she overcame preconceived no-

tions about the character after watching YouTube interviews with crack users and meeting a woman who struggled with crack addiction. She went on to tell The Telegraph, that she’s very pleased to have discovered the nuances of Paula’s character traits.

“The more layers I have to hide under as a character, the happier I am,” she said. “So with Paula in ‘Moonlight,’ despite the tortuous journey to get to her, once I found her was incredibly comfortable on set. Because she is so far removed. She is like the polar opposite to me.”

Commentary America’s Public School Students Deserve Better Than Betsy DeVos

Beyond the Rhetoric:

For the Love of Money

Michael H. Cottman

Betsy DeVos has no public school experience. She has never worked in a public school. She has never been a public school teacher. She has never served on a public school board. And she never attended a public school. And yet she was confirmed as the nation’s next Secretary of Education. The vote in the Senate was 50-50 on party lines save two Republicans. Vice President Mike Pence had to cast a tie-breaking vote. It was the first time that a vice president has been called to the U.S. Capitol to break a tie on a cabinet nomination. Should her lack of public school experience disqualify her from the job to lead the nation’s public school system? Yes. Donna Brazile, interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, said U.S. Senators who voted for DeVos may be targeted by their constituents who “will cast their votes next year to kick them out of office for selling out their state’s public schoolchildren.” DeVos is clearly not qualified to oversee an agency with about 4,500 employees and a budget of about $70 billion. It’s an agency that manages millions of public school students, many of whom

are African-American and other students of color who, in some cases, have already been marginalized by a flawed education system. Consider this: According to The National Education Association, Black boys in America’s public schools are more likely than their peers to be placed in special education classes, labeled mentally retarded, suspended from school, or drop out completely. What is DeVos’ education plan for Black boys? A billionaire from Michigan, DeVos is a staunch supporter of charter schools and school choice, arguing that parents should have the ability to choose the best schools for their children. She supports for-profit charter schools and the use of public money to subsidize tuition at private schools. What’s troubling is that DeVos doesn’t seem to understand the struggles of public school students or the financial hardships some families face. She is completely out of touch with public school students, parents and teachers and she would be a disaster for students who need bold leadership and compassion. DeVos offers neither. More than 300 Democratic lawmakers opposed her confirmation and her critics say her philosophy

on education destabilizes the public school system. Take Detroit, for example, my hometown. Detroit is the lowest performing big city in the country, but over the last 15 years, the entire state of Michigan has failed in student performance. Thirty-eight schools in Michigan are in jeopardy of being shut down by the State due to low academic performance – and 26 of those schools are in Detroit. Nearly half of charter schools in Detroit are ranked in the bottom of American schools, according to the Education Trust Midwest. Twenty percent were given a “D” or “F” grade. DeVos was raised in Holland, Michigan, about a 3-hour drive from Detroit. Holland is 80 percent white and African-Americans make up about 4 percent of the population. Does DeVos understand the changing racial demographics outside of Holland? Has DeVos visited any Detroit public schools recently to study first-hand the challenges facing inner-city students and teachers? DEVOS, See page 12A

Barbara Reynold’s Coretta Scott King Memoir is a Must Read

There just seems to be no end to the scandals connected with Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State and the Global Clinton Foundation. It was a moneymaking rouse aimed at raking in as many millions of dollars regardless of the security of our nation and the scores of victims who got in their way. The following letter describes a struggle that our national office as well as our affiliate, Manatee County (Florida) Black Chamber of Commerce, are going through to prevent the destruction of a major American company and the people who are employed there. Commissioners, In recent days, you have no doubt seen a great deal of activity from the Sierra Club concerning a phosphate mining operation owned by Mosaic in your county. This is an issue of some importance to The National Black Chamber of Commerce, as our Manatee County Chapter represents minority-owned business in the community. Like you, we are committed to the growth of the county and believe that creating new jobs, and retaining existing ones, is of paramount importance. That is why it is truly disappointing to see the Sierra Club leading a fake grassroots fight against Mosaic’s

has taken a decade for the book to be published, largely because of complications with the King estate. But Reynolds chooses not to talk about the complications, instead choosing to talk about the many ways her life was enriched and enhanced by her association with Mrs. King. She also chooses to illuminate the leadership roles that Mrs. King embraced, both while her husband, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was living, and after his death. The book is a great and inspirational read, especially now, when so many have despaired at the irrational-seeming leadership of Donald Trump. It is a reminder that it took 15 years of persistence to establish the King holiday that we now all take for granted. It is easy to forget that Congressman John Conyers (DMich.) introduced the King holiday legislation in 1968, just days after Dr. King’s assassination. He introduced it again and again, year after year. According to Coretta Scott King, the bill was rejected more than 70 times. But she, and Conyers, persisted in their efforts to create a national holiday. Coretta Scott King met with the reformed segregationist Senator Robert Byrd. She says she would have been “anxious” to meet with a man who fili-

permit for the mine. In fact, as you may know, the Sierra Club appears poised to file a lawsuit against the permit no matter what you, as Manatee County commissioners, decide. There can be little doubt that you have an important decision to make about the future of Mosaic’s phosphate mining operation. More than a hundred families in your community directly depend on this operation for their livelihood. A number of vendors who service the mine also have jobs and income at stake. Disapproving a permit for the mine means lost jobs, lost dollars, and lost opportunity for many, including the kinds of minority businesses my organization represents. The Sierra Club’s involvement appears even more disappointing when one considers recent revelations from major news outlets that the Clinton Foundation, which is tied closely to the Sierra Club, funneled millions of dollars from Moroccan business interests to try to put Mosaic out of business. After the Clinton Foundation took as much as $28 million in donations from Morocco’s ruler, King Mohammed VI, Ms. Clinton and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Lisa Jackson did everything they could

in 2011 to shut down Mosaic’s operations. You will recall that EPA was relatively uninterested in phosphate mining until Lisa Jackson and the EPA began their assault on Mosaic in 2011. Why would Morocco have such an interest in a phosphate mining operation in south Florida? The reason is clear. Morocco’s state-owned phosphate company, OCP, is a direct competitor of Mosaic and would benefit greatly from a shutdown of the mine in Manatee County. Shutting down the Mosaic mine was such a priority for Morocco and its state-owned competitor of Mosaic that King Mohammed VI directed $15 million to the Clinton Foundation through OCP. In the meantime, the Sierra Club, which has wellknown ties to the Clinton network, has become the artificial voice of the people working on the front lines in Manatee County to shut down Mosaic’s permit. You will recall that In June of 2016, the Sierra Club “enthusiastically endorsed” Ms. Clinton for President. MONEY, See page 12A

What Bothers You Most In The World? Shaun King

Every day that he holds the presidency, Donald Trump does something outrageous. He blusters, he just plain lies, and he bullies. He pushes his decisions, his executive orders, down the throats of a Congress that he dominates. Why not let the democratic process work and let them vote to build a wall and pay for it, instead of insisting, by executive order, that the wall will be built. In just one short week as President, he has demeaned our democracy and our voters, caused international turmoil, and more. But he is doing exactly what he said he would do. We’ve been here before. Remember Ronald Reagan, the President who cut school lunches and declared ketchup a vegetable? Remember warmonger George W. Bush? Remember Richard Nixon and his coldness toward Coretta Scott King? Remember history! Journalist Rev. Dr. Barbara Reynolds offers us the opportunity to remember history in the Coretta Scott King memoir, “My Life, My Love, My Legacy.” Reynolds took copious notes and made extensive recordings in the decades that she worked and travelled with Coretta Scott King, and she has turned them into a memoir.

bustered the 1964 Civil Rights Bill, but was assured that his views had changed. Indeed, Byrd supported the effort to establish the King holiday, but through a rules change, a two-thirds vote was needed to establish a holiday instead of a simple majority. In 1979, the bill lost by a mere five votes. Agitation continued after this loss. A petition drive yielded six million signatures. Stevie Wonder released his “Happy Birthday” song that advocated for a King holiday. Senator Jesse Helms opposed the holiday, introducing a 300-page document that detailed King’s “Communist activities.” Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan was so outraged by the document that he threw it to the ground, describing it as a “packet of filth.” On October 19, 1983, the Senate passed King holiday legislation 7822, following a House vote of 338-90. President Ronald Reagan signed the bill into law on November 3, 1983, establishing the King holiday on the third Monday of January, beginning in 1986. Of course, some states dragged MEMOIR, See page 12B

When I’m traveling on the road, speaking at colleges and universities around the country, I get several questions over and over again, no matter where I am in the country. The one question I might get more than any other goes a little something like this, “Shaun, I am bothered by injustice, I am bothered by Donald Trump, I am bothered by police brutality, I am bothered by racism and xenophobia, I am bothered by the issues of the world, but I just don’t know what to do about it. Where do I begin?” I get that question everywhere I go. The fact of the matter is that our country is so messed up right now, that people are overwhelmed to the point that it’s hard to know where to start. Yes, people will march and protest and sign petitions, but we’ve crossed a point where people want to know what exactly do they do after they march and protest and sign petitions. Well, that’s exactly what I want to help you all out with this morning. And I’m going to start with a quote from Dr. Howard Thurman, one of the most beloved alums of Morehouse College, and a mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Howard Thurman said, “Don’t ask what the

world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Let me read that one more time. “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Before I was doing the justice work that I do today, I was a pastor in Atlanta for over 10 years. The question I asked people to help them find their purpose and passion in life was very similar to Dr. Thurman’s, but simpler. I want to ask it of you this morning. It’s actually a deeply personal question that must be answered if you are going to go out and make a difference in the world. What disturbs you most in the world? What issue, what crisis, what problem in our country personally shakes you up and bothers you the most? See, we often assume that our answer is the same answer as the people around you, but I’ve asked that question to thousands of people across the country, and people assume that what bothers them is what bothers everybody else, but it’s just not true. Your answer to that question is deeply reflective of your

own life. It’s as unique as your fingerprint. I am deeply bothered and troubled by police brutality, deep down in my soul, because I was once assaulted as a kid, and abandoned by those in authority who knew full well that they could help me, but chose to do nothing. When people in authority abuse their power, it bothers me in a way that I can’t fully explain. You need to answer that question for yourself. What bothers you the most? For you, it might be child literacy or failing schools, it might be income inequality, it might be seeing immigrants or Muslims discriminated against, it might be issues related to mental health or homelessness, it might be human trafficking. The first step to finding out where you begin to make the world a better place starts in finding the one issue that breaks your heart. And this morning, I want to ask you to become a specialist. The world has enough generalists, who care a little bit here and there about a whole lot of stuff. But the world we’re WORLD, See page 12B

HYPERAROUSAL From page 2A dopamine and serotonin. While all these chemicals are flooding your body, your heart rate accelerates and your skin may flush or pale. Your stomach and upper intestinal tract slows down or stops. Digestion is put on hold. Sexual functions are not functioning. Your blood vessels constrict and your pupils dilate. You may suffer from a relaxation of your bladder or your anal sphincter. You could suffer the temporary loss of your hearing. Your peripheral vision may fail; you only have tunnel vision focusing on the object of your fear. You may experience shaking. Your awareness is intensified. This surge is responsible for the super-human strength of a mother who lifts a car off of her child or a hero who walks into danger to save another. This ability serves us well, but it has a cost. When we are on guard against a threat, our body’s natural defenses wear down. When we suffer from frequent stress – or when we frequently perceive life as stressful - an essentially

healthy response to stress can become distress. The fight-flight syndrome bypasses our rational mind and moves us into the primitive mode of survival. Everyone is a possible enemy. We overreact from a place of distorted thinking and fear is magnified. When we are stuck in survival mode, our consciousness is focused on fear, not love. We are overwhelmed with stress and lose the ability to relax as we deal with a series of emergencies. We become skilled worriers, a condition brilliantly described by Mark Twain who said, “I’ve experienced many terrible things in my life, a few of which actually happened.” All external circumstances affect how the body reacts internally to stress. In our modern world, driving in heavy traffic on the freeway can create the conditions that illicit the same response as being face-to-face with that saber-tooth tiger. Watching the evening news can create a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease. It can instill fears about an imagined imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. Fight has become anxiety. Flight has become depression. There is much evidence that a cumulative buildup of stress hormones can lead to disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and high blood pressure. Disorders of the immune system can create autoimmune diseases such as lupus and allergies and a susceptibility to infection and chronic fatigue. And all external circumstances also affect how the body recovers from stress; the rest-digest response, or the relaxation response. When we make the effort to change our external environment (our perceived reality) by getting out of toxic, harmful relationships or soul-crushing jobs, we take action to make our environment spiritually safer. When we choose to change our perceptions of our reality – viewing our difficulties as events which make us stronger, wiser and better – our attitudes and reactions change. The relaxation response is a physiologic response which you can create whenever you want. When you’re walking or doing a repetitive exercise, focus on a positive word such as “love.” Practicing yoga can quiet the mind. Focus on the breathing can trigger relaxation almost immediately. Singing, chanting or prayer is beneficial. Being mindful of your life experience can be a form of active meditation which elicits the relaxation response. Walking on the beach listening to the waves or watching the flickering flames of a fire can be as peaceful as focused meditation. The important thing is to practice going within whenever you have the opportunity. With practice, everything becomes easier and more automatic. Practice now so you’ll be ready when you need it. You don’t throw yourself off a boat in the middle of a stormy sea to learn how to swim. You learn to take care of yourself in quiet and calm waters, like a lake with no ripples.

HAPPINESS From page 2A 1. What you do. The first way to find meaning is seek it the tasks you undertake. 2. What you encounter. The second way is to recognize the unique and special meaning a moment, your interaction with life, a situation, or another person offers you. 3. What attitude you take. Realizing that you choose, at any single moment in life, the stand you wish to take and what you will make of it, brings meaning into focus. Connecting the dots – this moment as part of a string of moments that lead or have led you to now – allows meaning to burst through the fabric of your existence. So does making the connection between you and others, as does linking your involvement in this present moment.

DEBATE From page 3A senators from ‘Impugning’ other senators — known as “rule 19.” Warren was then ordered to stop reading and take her seat on the Senate floor. The Senate then voted to effectively censure Warren for the remainder of the debate on the Sessions nomination by a vote of 49-43. The Senate voted on Wednesday, February 8 to confirm Senator Sessions to secede Attorney General Loretta Lynch as the nation’s top cop under the Trump Administration. King wrote the letter in 1986 urging a Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee to reject then U.S. Attorney Sessions’ nomination for a district court judgeship. Coretta Scott King’s letter in part read that, “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly Black voters. For this reprehensible conduct he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.” The Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus released a blistering statement on the incident on the Senate floor hours later. “Republican senators’ decision tonight to silence Coretta Scott King from the grave is disgusting and disgraceful,” said Rep. Cedric Richmond, the chairman of the CBC, in a statement on the incident. “Mrs. King’s characterization of then U.S. Attorney Senator Sessions was accurate in 1986 and it is accurate now. He is as much of a friend to the Black community and civil rights as Bull Connor and the other Good Old Boys were during the Civil Rights Movement.” Senators stood confused after that vote. Asking for points of order and clarifications on whether or not they could refer to anything negative about Senator Sessions. Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King’s youngest daughter Bernice King tweeted in support of Warren shortly after Warren was silence by Republican objections. “How do you honor #MLK but dishonor #CorettaScottKing, architect of the King legacy? #LetCorettaSpeak #LetLizSpeak” she wrote. Senator Sessions had already been criticized during his confirmation hearing for several issues related to race, voting and his actions as a prosecutor. Sessions once called the gutting of the 2006 Voting Rights Act reauthorization named after Coretta Scott King, “good news for the South.” He also once prosecuted three individuals for voting fraud, including Albert Turner after they registered many in Alabama to vote. The incident was the latest evidence that the coming years that mark the start of the Trump Administration are likely to be contentious ones on Capitol Hill.

IGNORED From page 3A was widely the result of this coalition splintering away from the top of the ticket along the margins with younger and browner voters. • The majority of African American voters (53 percent) want the Congressional Black Caucus to oppose President Trump. While 53 percent is not an overwhelming majority, it does represent an unusual decision for voters that normally prefer cooperation rather than obstruction from elected officials in Washington. • African-American voters broadly support more drastic tactics to obstruct the Trump administration, including not confirming President Trump’s appointees (53 percent), sit-ins and other acts of civil disobedience. • African-American voters are overwhelmingly dissatisfied (69 percent) with the direction of the country now, a drastic departure from the satisfaction they experienced during the Obama administration. Only 22 percent of African Americans are satisfied with direction of the country now, while 69 percent are dissatisfied. • The list of important priorities for African American voters includes: Protecting Social Security (88 percent, very important), keeping us safe from terrorists (78 percent), criminal justice reform (74 percent), reforming the election process so the candidate with the majority wins (72 percent), investigating Russian interference with the 2016 election (72 percent), protecting Obama’s legacy (71 percent), banning assault weapons (61 percent), and blocking Sessions (60 percent) are the top legislative priorities for African Americans nationally.

DEVOS From page 11A Today, Detroit and state school administrators are trying to decide if poorperforming schools in Detroit should be closed, a devastating decision that will impact thousands of public school students. Does DeVos have a comprehensive plan to revitalize Detroit’s public school system other than promoting charter schools and private schools? So when I hear Republicans argue that DeVos can effectively serve our nation’s public school students even though she doesn’t have a clue about how public schools operate, I cringe. Our children deserve better. What do you think? MONEY From page 11A If this story seems difficult to follow, there

is a reason. The story involves Arab business interests, millions of dollars changing hands through private foundations, and politicians and government officials directing their crosshairs at an American business. It also involves the Sierra Club, a group eager to take money from the Clinton circle to target American industry. The story is complicated because those involved hoped to hide the truth. The evidence unearthed recently, though, provides the clear picture that a foreign company in Morocco used influence and money to shut down an American business that provides jobs right here in Manatee County. If successful, this plot would hurt many in Manatee County. There are consequences, though, for all Americans, since Mosaic is the only domestic producer of fertilizer. If the Moroccans are successful in using their allies to shut down Mosaic, it will leave the U.S. dependent on phosphates from Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia. This has dangerous implications for our food supply. We urge you, in your capacity as county commissioners, to consider not only the benefits that the Mosaic mine brings to this community, but to also consider the nature of the opposition to this permit. It is our strong belief, born out by the evidence, that the Sierra Club is far more interested in a coordinated takedown of Mosaic than any sincere degree of environmental concern. Our hope is that you will do everything in your power to cut through the web of influence that extends from the Arab world, through the Clinton Foundation, and now into Manatee County, and make the right decision for this American business upon which so many people rely.

Several minutes later, St. John’s Hospital called to report a separate gunshot victim had just arrived at the hospital. This victim would also be transported to VCMC.

Mistress of Ceremonies, Dr. Karen Hill-Scott, serves as team mother along with Mrs. Thompson for the freshman team. Tiffany Bumpus serves as

team mother for the sophomore team. Dr. Hill-Scott described the gathering as, “…a team bonding event where the freshman and sophomore players, their parents, and coaching staff can come together in unity and love to encourage each other. Many hands make light work. Many of the parents work and may need someone to provide trans-

portation for the players. Some of the players benefit from positive male role models. Team cohesiveness and cooperation by the coaches and parents is essential for these great teams to continue doing well. It keeps the players out of trouble and keeps them excited about playing.” Coach Hank “O” Ornalez OXNARD, See page 12B

“The most influential person to me is Malcolm X. He taught that we didn’t need to keep taking punishment from the violent whites… that we need to fight back.”

“My favorite is Barack Obama. You are always told to be who you want to be. In America, that saying comes with contingencies. Obama broke that and made being president possible for all.”

VENTURA – The Ventura County Community College District Veterans Resource Center Coordinators from Moorpark College, Oxnard College and Ventura College met with managers from California Lutheran University, California State University, Channel Islands, and National University to discuss best practices for helping student veterans achieve success. Leading the discussion was VCCCD Trustee Larry Kennedy, Chancellor Bernard Luskin and Vice Chancellor of Educational Services Rick Post, all United States Navy veterans. The meeting included all of the cooperating higher education institutions in Ventura County that have a veteran’s center. The VCCCD is leading a state-wide effort to expand and improve veterans’ services on college campuses.

Kennedy, Co-Chair of the Community College League of California Veterans Caucus, shared the Caucus goal to increase the organization’s membership of individuals and institutions to advocate on behalf of veterans and encourage state and federal support in funding for counselors and other needed services for student veterans. “Things were different when I returned from Vietnam,” stated Kennedy. “Today’s students need more than VFW halls. In addition to academic support, they need re-entry and transitioning support. We would like to see a Veterans Resource Center on every community college campus in the state,” Kennedy added. Chancellor Luskin and members of the Board of Trustees, including Chair Bernardo Perez and Trustee Stephen Blum, will attend

the Association of Community College Trustees National Legislative Summit in Washington, DC, Monday, Feb. 13-16, 2017, to connect the CCLC Veterans Caucus with ACCT and national legislative staff.

Ventura – Rubicon Theatre Company celebrates Black History Month with The Devil’s Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith, starring singer and actress Miche Braden of the original Off-Broadway production (named one of the 10 Best Off-Broadway productions of the year by the N.Y. Daily Times). Described by CBC as a, “bawdy, bluesy, boozy rollicking night out at the theatre,” the show follows the life, loves and career of blues and jazz singer Bessie Smith, called the “Empress of the Blues.” The Devil’s Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith is conceived and directed by Joe Brancato of Penguin Rep, and written by Angelo Parra. Set in 1937 in

Memphis, Bessie and her musicians have been turned away from performing at a “Whites-Only” theatre, then finding a hospitable gin joint where Bessie recounts her incredible journey from an impoverished childhood in Chattanooga, to her fortuitous rise as a show-stopping singer. Laughter, pathos and music all come together to deliver an electric, entertaining and surprisingly touching evening. Says Rubicon Producing Artistic Director Karyl Lynn Burns, “We are thrilled to celebrate Black History Month with this triumphant and turbulent story about a woman whose life was as large and as outrageous as her talent. She was unapologetically herself and carved

out a unique place in history, influencing and inspiring hundreds of notable artists who followed her (including Janis Joplin, who bought the tombstone for Bessie’s unmarked grave.” The Devil’s Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith opens in Ventura on Saturday, February 25 at 7:00 p.m., followed by a post-show party with cast, crew and local VIPs at NOW Ventura. Low-priced previews are February 22-24. The show runs Wednesdays through Sundays through March 12, 2017. The Rubicon Theatre is located at 1006 E. Main Street in Ventura’s Downtown Cultural District (the corner or Main and Laurel).For tickets, go to www. rubicontheatre.org or call (805) 667-2900.

Notice To Potential Bidders: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. Notice To Property Owner: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (877) 440-4460 or visit this Internet Web site www.mkconsultantsinc. com, using the file number assigned to this case 160929254. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close

in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

A Petition for Probate has been filed by THOMAS STEVENS in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that THOMAS STEVENS be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: February 22, 2017 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VEN-

TURA, 4353 East Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Justice Center. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court.

The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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 (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 048892-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

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.

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.

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.

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 In Source Logic at 702-659-7766 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, CA0800234716-1.

President Trump Approves

California Emergency Declaration

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today that federal emergency aid has been made available to the State of California to supplement State, tribal, and local response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from the potential failure of the emergency spillway at Lake Oroville Dam beginning on February 7, 2017, and continuing. The President's action authorizes FEMA to coordinate all disaster relief efforts that have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the counties of Butte, Sutter, and Yuba. Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct federal assistance, will be provided at 75 percent Federal funding. Timothy J. Scranton has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal response operations in the affected area. MEMOIR From page 11A their feet. Arizona did not acknowledge the holiday until the NFL moved a Super Bowl in protest in 1992. South Carolina waited until 2000 to acknowledge the holiday. We often see Coretta Scott King as a stoic, dignified lady, and a graceful partner to civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King. This memoir shows her from another perspective, as a leader in her own right, as a dedicated pacifist, as a persistent adherent to principles of nonviolence, as a gritty fighter for her husband’s legacy through the holiday and the establishment of the King Center. We also see her as a mother, and can read her assessment of her children, their strengths and their challenges. While I had the privilege to be in Mrs. King’s company on many occasions, and to speak with her personally and at length more than once, this book adds a depth to my knowledge of her and makes me wish I’d had the opportunity to know the side of her that laughed with Betty Shabazz and Myrlie Evers (I laughed with both of those women, but never Coretta), enjoyed opera, and let her hair down. As we attempt to develop the “fight back” plan for the outrageousness of the Trump presidency, it is useful to consider the women on whose shoulders we stand – Fannie Lou Hamer, Ida B. Wells, Shirley Chisholm and so many others. And it is useful to remember the grit and grace of Coretta Scott King, the power and passion in her persistence. For me, this book put steel in my spine. The Trump years will be a long four years, but imagine waiting 17 years to establish a King holiday that is now so widely celebrated!

WORLD From page 11A living in right now needs you to put your feet down and decide to actually make some change happen. That begins with you deciding what your primary cause is going to be. I’ll close with this thought…. You can always change your mind later, but what I have found is that once you answer the question of what bothers you the most in the world, and then make up in your mind that you will dedicate your life to moving the needle on that problem, it immediately becomes so much easier for you to find the people and organizations and partners that you need to work with to solve that problem. You don’t have to answer the question today, but soon, answer the question of what bothers you the most in the world, and then commit to being the change you want to see in the world. OXNARD From page 14A was recognized for his 30+ years of coaching and teaching around Ventura County. Coach “O”, as he prefers to be called, discussed his drive to work with the team. He simply loves sports and his life has been dedicated to teaching physical education and coaching since his graduation from UCSB in the late ‘60s. Mrs. Ornalez had an opportunity to share with the group as well, sharing the dedication and hard work that coaches put in at home and work. Coach Thompson received accolades for his consistency with the team, while some of the students had comments for him and Coach Fukmitsu. Dr. Karen Hill-Scott conducted team-building exercises by asking the coaches why they chose the occupation. She then asked the sophomore and freshmen teammates to share how they felt about the coaches. The parents and players showed an amazing amount of gratitude to the coaches and each other for showing love, unity and helping each other out. There were a few tearful moments, mainly by the parents and coaches. The goals of the event were accomplished. KNS ROCKSTAR From page 15A allow their voices to be heard, allowing school administration to get an idea of current issues going on around campus. “It’s extremely important that we show our next generation that someone loves you, someone cares, and someone is here to inspire you to conquer your dreams,” said KNS Rockstar. The judges at America’s Got Talent loved KNS Rockstar’s school tour mission and praised them for doing great things in their community. Let’s tune in, rally, support and vote for this dynamic duo. BGCOP From page 1B had at least a 4.0 GPA all four years of high school. He has taken honors and advanced placements classes and received Wendy’s 2016 Heisman scholarship for his school.

Southwestern Tofu Scramble

Cooking crumbled firm tofu in a skillet approximates the fluffy texture of scrambled eggs in this vegetablestudded, vegetarian main dish. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Serve with steamed corn tortillas, some extra salsa and black beans. Active time:30 minutes Total time: 30 minutes Servings: 4 (about 3/4 cups each) 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided 1 14-ounce package firm water-packed tofu, rinsed and crumbled 1 1/2 teaspoons chili

powder 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided 1 small zucchini, diced 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed 4 scallions, sliced 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese 1/2 cup prepared salsa 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1.

Add zucchini, corn, scallions and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just tender, about 3 minutes. Return the tofu to the pan and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese until just melted. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons salsa and 1 tablespoon cilantro.

Brown Butter & Dill Brussels Sprouts

When you brown butter, as in this recipe, the flavor intensifies so adding just a little to Brussels sprouts still makes a big impact. Active time: 25 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes Serving size: 3/4 cup 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons slivered almonds,

toasted (see Tip) 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add Brussels sprouts, cover and steam until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small skillet over

medium heat. Cook, swirling often, until the butter turns a nutty brown, 1 to 3 minutes. Stir in oil and scrape into a large bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the Brussels sprouts, almonds, vinegar, dill, salt and pepper and toss to combine. Tip: To toast slivered almonds, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

Grilled Steak with Pepper Relish

Here, we toss colorful bell peppers in a balsamicherb vinaigrette and grill them in a foil packet at the same time as the steak. Serve with corn on the cob. Active time: 35 minutes Total time: 35 minutes Servings: 4 3 small red, yellow and/or orange bell peppers, sliced 1 small onion, halved and sliced 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried, divided 1/2 teaspoon salt,

divided 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided 1 pound sirloin steak or strip steak (1-1 1/4 inches thick), trimmed and cut into 4 portions 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1. Preheat grill to medium. 2. Combine bell peppers, onion, vinegar, oil, capers, 2 teaspoons fresh thyme (or 3/4 teaspoon dried) and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. 3. Stack two 30-inchlong pieces of foil. Arrange the pepper mixture on one half and fold the foil.

Tightly seal the packet by crimping and folding the edges together. 4. Sprinkle both sides of steak with garlic powder, the remaining thyme and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. 5. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Place the steak and foil packet on the grill. Grill the steak about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, 5 minutes per side for medium. Grill the packet until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes. Serve the steak with the peppers. Tip: To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

We love York peppermint patties and the flavor of these festive pots de crème is a dead ringer for the candy. Active time: 40 minutes Total time: 3 hours 30 minutes Serves: 8 Custard 3 large egg yolks 1 cup sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon pepper mint extract 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups low-fat milk, divided 1/4 cup cornstarch 1/2 cup half-and-half Chocolate Glaze & Garnish 1/3 cup nonfat evaporated milk 1/4 cup bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips 2 tablespoons honey 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar Small sprigs fresh mint for garnish 1, Preheat oven to 325°F. Put a kettle of water on to boil for a water bath. Place eight

4-ounce ramekins or custard cups in a roasting pan. 2. To prepare custard: Whisk egg yolks, sugar, vanilla extract, peppermint extract and salt in a large bowl; set near the stove. Whisk 1/2 cup milk and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth. Heat the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk and half-and-half in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until steaming hot. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the steaming milk and continue cooking, whisking constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens, 2 to 4 minutes. Gradually whisk the thickened milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture. 3. Carefully pour the custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup or heatproof pitcher. Evenly divide among the ramekins or custard cups. They will be about threequarters full. 4. Pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan to come about halfway up the sides of the cups. Carefully transfer the roasting

pan to the oven. Bake the custards until they are set but still jiggle a little bit, 35 to 40 minutes. 5. Remove the roasting pan from the oven. Let the custards cool in the water bath to room temperature, about 1 hour. Remove from the water bath and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour more. 6. To prepare chocolate glaze: Shortly before serving, heat evaporated milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Place chocolate chips and honey in a heatproof medium bowl. As soon as the milk starts to bubble, pour it over the chocolate chips and whisk until completely smooth, about 1 minute. Sift in cocoa powder and confectioners’ sugar while whisking; whisk until smooth. 7. Divide the chocolate glaze among the custards, tilting each to cover it completely. Garnish with mint, if desired. Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 5, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
