By Tim Pompey Every day, according to Jane LeMond-Alvarez, cofounder and president of the National Association Against Child Cruelty (NAACC), ten children in the United States die of child abuse, about 2,500 annually. In Ventura County alone, approximately 10,000-13,000 cases of

abuse and neglect and 300 cases of sexual molestation are annually reported. Several years ago, in order to bring attention to this crisis and to help build public support to revamp state laws and improve California’s Child Protective Services, LeMond-Alvarez and her husband Leo founded NAACC and The

Children’s Wall of Tears. The Children’s Wall of Tears is the educational arm of NAACC. It uses names and pictures to memorialize children around the world who are killed as a result of child abuse and neglect.

Around the Tri-Counties Is there a secret formula to being successful? Words to Live by into their lives. Unsuccessful people criticize: They will find something wrong with everything and will blast your failures and shadow your successes. They will be the negative voice that doesn’t believe in anything and is narrow-minded. Successful people compliment: They understand when they should give constructive criticism or not. They will talk with positivity and see the future in something rather than just talking down about something. They don’t keep much negativity in their lives. Unsuccessful people blame others for their failures: These people love to point the finger on anything and anyone when something goes wrong in their lives. They constantly look for excuses and reasons as to why something didn’t happen, rather than looking into what they did wrong. This makes them feel better about failing; finger pointing is the easy way out. Successful people take responsibility for their own actions: They learn from their mistakes because they look at what they did wrong, recognize it and figure out a way not to make the same mistake twice. They understand Paid Advertisement

they are responsible for their own actions. Unsuccessful people think they know it all: It’s funny because they walk around with their heads high as if they have the answer to every question that life has. They are stubborn; they always think they are right and that they know it all, when instead they are idiots. Successful people are constantly learning: Successful people understand that everything in life is about experience and the day you stop learning is the day you are dead. They are always asking questions and are always looking to attain more and more information. Unsuccessful people don’t know what they want to be: They love spitting out the line “I don’t know what I want to do with my life.” They never have any direction and instead of looking for some direction or some sort of target, they just sit and complain about it. They are crybabies that lack action. Successful people have a target and goals: They understand there is one fundamental in life, you need to understand where you are aiming so that you can start shooting towards SUCCESSFUL, See page 12A

VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. – On Saturday, May 10, Ventura County letter carriers will be caravanning more than just incoming and outgoing mail, and community members won’t have to venture far from their doorsteps to give back to the local hungry in a big way. The day will mark the 22nd annual National Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive –the largest single-day food drive—when thousands of letter carriers across the country will collect residences’ food donations for their local food banks. To date, almost 1.3 billion pounds of food has been collected nationwide since the massive food drive

launched. Last year, FOOD Share, received more than 150,000 pounds of food to support the 74,500 hungry individuals as a result of the single-day food drive. Ventura County residents are asked to leave non-perishable, proteinrich foods in a bag next to their mailboxes for postal carriers to pick up while on their daily route. The donations will then be collected from participating post offices and taken to FOOD Share’s distribution site in Oxnard. Corporate sponsors of the local event, Farmers Insurance and Montecito Bank & Trust, will team up with the National Association of Letter Carriers to provide funds, resources

and company volunteers to support FOOD Share’s missions of feeding, nourishing and educating the hungry of Ventura County. “It’s amazing how much a single-day food drive can have a profound impact replenishing our distribution site’s shelves,” explains Bonnie Weigel, president and CEO of FOOD Share. “Today, one in six people in Ventura County struggle with hunger and this issue doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Every donation makes a difference and is truly appreciated. I encourage everyone to join us in making Stamp Out Hunger a success.” To drop off a donation on May 10, please visit these CHARITABLE, See page 12A

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan Success doesn’t just fall out of the sky nor does it happen out of nowhere. There is no book or movie you can watch to get you there. What it comes down to is habits. Habits are what separate the strong from the weak, the rich from, the poor, the doers from the hearers. It is as simple as that. The difference between the successful people and the unsuccessful people of the world comes down to their different habits. Those who are successful have set forth the habits to get them there and those who are not dwell on their bad habits that they have acquired and will never change. The difference between the habits comes down to the person. It comes down to their mind and how willing they are to take on the habits of those who are successful to manifest that

Be A Person of Your Word Inez Knows

By Inez Lanns It seems that it has become the “norm” to talk things up or exercise exaggeration. Sometimes when people want someone to like them, they will try to pretend to be who they percieve the person expects. Or they may say things that they hope will make them look better. It has become culturally acceptable to tell “little white lies.” If a person thinks that the truth is going to “get them in trouble,” they may decide to not share all of the facts (what I call half-truths) or purpose to bend the truth a little to get ahead. Truth however is black

and white. It is defined by Dictionary.com as a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle or take. Truth represents honesty and integrity. Ones reputation hedges on the character of the individual. Once your reputation for transparency is put into question, it becomes hard to earn a respect from those around you. It’s like trying to stop a blazing fire by pouring on oil. Those lies spread and contaminent every area they touch. It is better to say nothing at all, rather than to tell a lie. Why even open your mouth if you know that you cannot deliver on what you have committed to? Good intentions don’t mean anything without the corresponding actions to follow. When we don’t keep our word or make empty promises, we are inadvertantly teaching others, especially our young people, not to trust our words. We are also teaching them that they do not have to keep their word, unless it is convenient to do so. A lack of

VENTURA – Any recipients of a recent phishing scam disguised as an email from the Ventura Superior Court should immediately delete the email and not open any attachments which may contain computer viruses or stealth programs to steal personal information for possible identity theft. Recently, the Ventura Superior Court began receiving calls and emails from recipients of a phishing email which purports to be from the Clerk of the Court of the Ventura Superior Court as well as other law enforcement agencies. Several email and phone scams now are widespread throughout the United States, falsely claiming that the intended victims have court cases or other legal issues pending in

California, Arizona, Florida plus many other states, and must pay money or provide private information. Five different kinds of scams currently are ongoing, based on complaints received by California courts and other courts throughout the United States to date. However, new variations been appearing in the recent weeks. Examples of these scams include, but are not limited to: • Email scam falsely stating that the intended victim has engaged in “illegal software use” and must appear in court. • Another email scam falsely says that the intended victims have filed a court complaint or is the subject of court complaints. Many of these emails say

follow-through eventually leaves people feeling like they cannot trust or rely on others. It causes insecurity on many levels. We must all think before we speak, feeling free to say “I would like to, but I can’t” or “let me get back to you IF I can do it, but please continue to look for someone else.” By being people of our word, we demonstrate that integrity is important. Our actions and level of commitment will teach those in our sphere of influence that we are reliable, trustworthy and effective. Not only by our words but actions. Being a person of character and people of our word will result in stronger relationships with others. Now I know that we have all fallen short in some areas, but it is never too late to begin. Let’s commit to startong today. If you say you’re going to be somewhere, be there on time, if not early. If you say that you are going to do something, do it. That is a good place to start.

Assemblymember Das Williams Calls SCE Awards $1.2 Million in Out For-Profit University Abuses Scholarships to Edison Scholars

SACRAMENTO — Assemblymember Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara), Chair of the Assembly Higher Education Com-

mittee, joined Senator Ted Lieu and the Senate Committee on Business, Professions and Economic Development; Senate Education

Committee; and, Assembly Business, Professions and Consumer Protection Committee to hear from Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) Chief Joanne Wenzel and State Auditor Elaine Howle on Monday, April 21 at 10:00 a.m. in the State Capitol. "These colleges can play an important role in meeting the state’s educational and economic needs,” said Assemblymember Williams "But, the blatant abuses by some within the for-profit sector, which we read about in the news almost weekly, have forced California to focus on the business regulation and consumer protection side of oversight.” According to State Auditor Howle, the state's program for regulation of private colleges and vocational institutions has historically been plagued by problems; today's Bureau continues to fail in meeting its statutory mandate to protect consumers and enforce the law.

Sports News Manny Pacquiao Defeats Michigan State's Adreian Payne Timothy Bradley in Rematch Loses His Biggest Little Fan

By Greg Beacham LAS VEGAS — Nearly two years later, Manny Pacquiao finally got the decision most people thought he deserved the first time against Timothy Bradley. Pacquiao won a unanimous decision in his rematch with Bradley on Saturday night, avenging his 2012 loss and claiming the WBO welterweight title. Pacquiao (56-5-2) pursued and peppered the previously unbeaten Bradley around the MGM Grand Garden ring with an aggressive effort occasionally recalling the Pacman in his prime. Bradley fought back with counterpunching and elusiveness, but Pacquiao kept up his attack while Bradley (31-1) struggled down the stretch. In the same arena where

Angels Fan Learns Very Quickly That Players Aren't Supposed to be Touched

By Michael Klopman An Angels fan needed to be reminded that spectators aren't allowed to touch players during the game. After Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson caught a fly ball by the right field foul pole, a fan at Angel Stadium of Anaheim touched his back as he was about to throw it toward the infield. That didn't appear to sit well with Granderson, who held the ball and immediately turned around to confront the fan. The man was escorted out of the stadium by security shortly after the altercation, per Newsday.

By Ashley Woods College basketball fans across the country fell for the story of an uncommon friendship between a hoops star and one of his biggest fans: 6'10" Adreian Payne, a senior on the Michigan State Spartans, and a little girl in a long blonde wig who went by the nickname "Princess Lacey." Lacey Holsworth, age 8, of St. Johns, Mich., died early Wednesday, April 9, according to media reports. Her battle with a rare form of cancer led her to Payne, with whom she formed an achingly close bond. The friendship between Payne and Lacey wasn't just unusual, it was unlikely. Many expected Payne to leave Michigan State University for the NBA after his junior year. But Payne, who had been diagnosed as cognitively disabled as a child in Dayton, Ohio, wanted to finish his coursework in sociology and become the first person from his family to earn a college degree. Two years ago, during a team-sponsored hospital

visit, he met Lacey, who had been diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive cancer that invades the nerve tissue. The little girl had a football-sized tumor surrounding her kidney and another tumor wrapped around her spine when she was diagnosed in 2011. For several months, the cancer paralyzed her. By all accounts, she was drawn to

Payne from the beginning. Despite his life as a popular Michigan State basketball player and student, Payne visited Lacey in the hospital several times, and they began texting every day. When the Spartans competed in the Elite Eight this year, Lacey was there. When Payne competed during the NCAA slam dunk contest, Lacey sat in the stands. And when Payne was able to pick anyone in the world to accompany him on the floor for Senior Day this year, he chose Lacey. "There's days where the smiles don't come as easily. When he can walk in the room and you can see her light up like that, it means everything," her mother, Heather Holsworth, said in a segment filmed by the Big Ten Network. “She has taught me to fight through everything, to always continue to have a smile on my face,” Payne said in the video, “even when things are going wrong.” Lacey’s impact on Payne and the MSU basketball team will live on.

Shawne Merriman

The lawsuit says Merriman acquired the federal trademark rights for Lights Out in 2007. He was nicknamed "Lights Out" after knocking out opponents in a high school game. The suit demands an injunction to stop trademark infringement and related unfair business practices, as well as damages to be determined at trial. A Nike spokesman said the company doesn't comment on litigation.

Former NFL Star Shawne Merriman Suing Nike Over Lights Out Name

Curtis Granderson argues with fan who touched his back. "He touched me," me.' So that was it. Say Granderson told News- whatever you want to say, day after the game. "Then boo, cheer, clap, cheer for I turned around and he's your team, cheer for the like, 'I didn't mean to.' I other team. But just don't said, 'Hey, just don't touch physically touch players."

Eagles' LeSean McCoy:

I'd Pick My Toddler Over Tim Tebow

LeSean McCoy If given the choice between a toddler and Tim Tebow, Philadelphia Eagles star LeSean McCoy says he'd definitely pick the tyke. TMZ asked McCoy for his opinion as to who he thinks the most talented NFL player without a team is. "[For] example, Vince Young, Tim Tebow… someone out there who doesn't have a team," a reporter for the news outlet can be heard asking the 25-year-old running back in a video of the exchange. "Tim Tebow?" McCoy responds, with a frown. "My son is two… I'd take my son over Tim Tebow." Tebow hasn't been picked up by an NFL team since being released by the New England Patriots after only a few months before the 2013 season.

SAN DIEGO — Former NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman is suing Nike Inc. for trademark infringement and unfair competition over its Lights Out apparel line. The suit, filed on behalf of Merriman's Lights Out Holdings LLC, was filed in U.S. District Court. According to the suit, after Nike and Merriman unsuccessfully negotiated to create a Lights Out apparel line in 2006 or 2007, the company used the name anyway.

Boston Celtics Veteran Bill Russell Sounds Off On Gay Athletes

By Jim Vertuno AUSTIN, Texas — NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell said that gay athletes' current fight for equality and acceptance reminds him of some of the same struggles black athletes faced in the 1960s. Russell, who won 11 NBA championships with the Boston Celtics, said talk about whether gay athletes can be good teammates or if they might disrupt locker rooms are the same questions black athletes heard years ago, when colleges and professional leagues were struggling with the concept of integration. "It seems to me, a lot of questions about gay athletes, were the same questions they used to ask about us," Russell said during a panel discussion at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, which is hosting a summit celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. Russell said he would have only one question about a gay teammate: Can he play? Russell, 80, joined NFL

Bill Russell Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown, 78, on a panel about sports and race during the three-day Civil Rights Summit. Brown and Russell were key figures, as athletes and black leaders, during the civil rights movement. Both men said they approached civil rights as a struggle for respect for human beings based on their character and merit, not the color of their skin. Their comments came just hours after UMass basketball player Derrick Gordon became the first openly gay player in Division I men's basketball.

The former athletes also addressed the question of whether college athletes should be able to form unions and collectively bargain with their universities. Brown said he opposed unionizing college athletes, but also said he disliked the model of the NCAA. "It's not going to be a struggle between the NCAA and the union, that will just be (about) money ... put the value back on education," Brown said. Russell, however, remembered fighting to form the NBA players union to get better contracts. That only worked when players threatened to sit out an allstar game and the playoffs, Russell said. "All great fortunes are amassed with either cheap or slave labor," Russell said. "The NCAA is the one group everybody is focusing on. They have this money machine. To keep it this way, the labor force has to be free or very low wages ... All the agreements with the NBA now are based on collective bargaining."

By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO - A proposal to offer free preschool to all California four-year-olds passed its first legislative hurdle on with support from Democrats but facing skepticism from Governor Jerry Brown and some educators that could doom its chances this year. The $1.5 billion program is being pushed hard by the state senate's Democratic leader, Darrell Steinberg, who is leaving office at the end of this year and views it as key to his legacy in the most populous U.S. state. "Thirty million words that's the gap between the number of words heard by low-income children and their middle- and upper-income peers," Steinberg told the senate education committee. "That number astounds me. They are behind before they even get started

in their formal schooling." The bill, which passed the senate education committee, comes as a call for universal pre-K is gaining traction around the country. Lawmakers in New York state included $300 million for public preschool programs there, and Oklahoma also offers them. The idea is favored by many education advocates, who say children whose parents cannot afford preschool fall behind quickly once

they get to kindergarten, and many never catch up. The California proposal let districts offer pre-K in public schools or pay private operators. The plan would roll out gradually over five years, starting with children with January birthdays and gradually expanding. Children would not be required to attend. The proposal goes next to the senate’s appropriations committee.

By Jessica Dickerson There was a time when black students were not allowed to attend Ivy Leagues universities. This year, Harvard University proved just how far they’ve come from that part of their history. According to the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, this year marks Harvard’s highest percentage of accepted black students to date. The journal predicts that the class of 2018 will have approximately 170 black students out of a total of 2,023 -- almost 12 percent of the class population. It goes on to stress the fact that American colleges most known for their selectiveness tend to average only 5 to 10 percent black students. Two high schoolers made headlines for not only receiving acceptance letters from Harvard, but from several Ivy League schools: Kwasi Enin -- who was accepted to all eight Ivy Leagues -- and

Avery Coffey, who was accepted to five. Indeed, it’s been a good year of breaking stereotypes for black students, including Ivy-bound Akintunde Ahmad, a Bay Area teen who carries a copy of his report card around on his phone to prove his 5.0 GPA and 2100 SAT score. The current rise in minority admissions is certainly something to celebrate, but there's still progress to be made. Dr.

Boyce Watkins of Syracuse University praised the institution for their historic achievement, but also challenged schools to look to increase diversity elsewhere on campus, namely through the faculty. While we are tempted to jump up and down in excitement over the school's decision to accept the fact that blacks are just as bright as whites, we might need to take a moment of pause. Even though the presence of black students is very important to a campus, the reality is that admitting students of color neither requires significant courage nor shows any real sign of meaningful progress when it comes to truly shaping the direction of a university. The holy grail of power in any academic environment is the number of tenured faculty positions, which Harvard continues to keep African Americans from obtaining.

Camarillo – CSU Channel Islands (CI) is pleased to announce its first fully online degree – the Bachelor of Science in Business, offered through the Martin V. Smith School of Business & Economics and CI’s Extended University. The new online degree allows students to earn their B.S. in Business at a convenient time and location and accelerated pace, with the same outstanding instruction and curriculum as CI’s oncampus degree, and in a format that meets the demands and challenges of 21st Century business learning. “A large number of our students are juggling jobs, family responsibilities and trying to further their education and career potential at the same time,” said Dr. William P. Cordeiro, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Director of the MVS School of Business & Economics. “We’ve adapted

CI’s popular business program so they don’t have to put their lives on hold to advance. Students can earn the same degree and enjoy the flexibility of 24-7 access to CI’s faculty, support and resources online.” The degree is offered in partnership with Cal State Online, the CSU system’s centralized resource for offering distance-learning degree programs. The first candidates are invited to apply no later than July 15 to be considered for admission to the fall 2014 entering class. “The online B.S. in Business represents another great step in fulfilling CI’s mission of making a highquality college education attainable for citizens of our region, the state, and beyond,” said Dr. Gary Berg, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, Extended University & International Programs. “Now we can reach and support

students for whom enrollment in our on-campus degree program is difficult or impossible. Among those served by this program will be working adults, members of the military, and former CSU students who have left in good standing, but had to ‘stop out’ of their degree programs.” The program is open to transfer students who have completed 60 units of lower division general education requirements for the Business major. For the 2014-15 academic year, CI anticipates enrolling 100 students, with enrollment increasing to 200 in the subsequent year. Students may complete the degree either on a full-time or part-time basis. A Cal State Online coach will guide and support them through the application process.

State News Jackson Puts Statewide Drug Take-Back AG Harris Announces Arrests in Multi-State Drug Trafficking Bust Legislation on Hold

SACRAMENTO -State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) announced that, due to a lack of support from some of her legislative colleagues in the Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee, she is shelving a bill this year to create the nation’s first statewide drug take-back program for prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Jackson plans to introduce a bill tackling this same topic next year. In the meantime, Jackson is amending Senate Bill 1014 to move a bill forward that will reinstate model guidelines, developed by CalRecycle, for local governments want-

ing to create their own drug take-back programs, so that efforts can continue at the local level. “I am disappointed that we were unable to move forward with a statewide plan this year, but I am

committed to this issue and to helping to solve the immense public health and environmental challenges created by unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs. I always expected change of this magnitude to be a multi-year effort. I look forward to taking the next several months to determine how to best move forward with legislation next year that will create a statewide drug take-back program,” Jackson said. Jackson added, “Most of all, I look forward to the day when the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry steps up to take responsibility and joins us as a partner in tackling legislation that JACKSON, See page 12A

“We can encourage a greater level of accountability and transparency by giving legislative staff members the confidence to report this type of criminal behavior in the future,” stated Assemblyman Gorell, a former Ventura County prosecutor. “Staff members have the greatest visibility over activities in and around the Capitol, and they are likely to have the most immediate knowledge of unethical or criminal behavior. We must create an environment where employees feel more comfortable reporting bad behavior.” While most state workers in California are currently GORELL, See page 12A

FRESNO -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced the arrest of eleven individuals associated with a Central Valleybased narcotics trafficking organization and the seizure of over $200,000 in cash and drugs including over 50 lbs. of methamphetamine and nearly 1,000 marijuana plants. "Transnational drug traffickers aren't troubled by the details of law enforcement jurisdictions or government borders, and neither should our enforcement efforts,” Attorney General Harris said. “My California Department of Justice Task Force worked closely with local, state and federal law enforcement officials throughout the Central Valley to dismantle the Magana organization. Our success shows the pressing need for more

collaboration and funding to fight transnational drug trafficking in California.” Defendants Jose Magana, Manuel Munoz and Juan Parra were arrested on March 4, 2014, defendant John DeWayne Young was arrested on November 10, 2013 and defendant Ana Valero was arrested

on March 11, 2014, all in Tulare County. Defendants Erwin Alva, Rosemary Alvarez, Ernesto Carrillo and Christopher Pellegrin were arrested on March 4, 2014 in Riverside County. They are charged with thirteen felony counts including possession, transportation and sale of a controlled substance, prohibited possession of ammunition, and conspiracy. All are currently being held in Tulare County Jail and are being prosecuted by the Tulare County District Attorney. Alva, Alvarez, Carrillo, Munoz, Pellegrin and Valero are being held on $500,000 bail, Magana and Parra are being held without bail and Young is being held on $3 million bail.

State Controller John Chiang credit card spending and mismanaged state grant funds. The Controller also reviewed redevelopment asset transfers and ordered $22.7 million in redevelopment assets to be returned to the successor agency. "These audits found

that the city's prior leaders displayed little regard for fundamental accounting and fiscal management practices necessary to promote transparency and protect taxpayer dollars," said Chiang. "Very few controls or checks and balances existed to guard against corruption, abuse, and fiscal mismanagement. The few rules that did exist were not followed, and questionable spending was rampant." The Controller initiated the internal control audit late last year at the request of the City's new management, and provided draft copies of the report to the City in February. The City's response to each finding is included in the published report.

In a major step forward for Ellis Act reform, Senator Leno’s bill to stop unfair Ellis Act evictions in San Francisco passed the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee. SB 1439 closes a loophole in the Ellis Act that allows speculators to buy rentcontrolled buildings and immediately begin the process of evicting longterm renters. The bill is co-sponsored by San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee and Tenants Together, and is supported by numerous local businesses, labor groups, elected officials, senior organizations, and tenant advocates. Tenants from San Francisco rallied on the steps of the Capitol before the hearing and packed the hearing room. Numerous community organizations including Chinatown Community Development Corporation, Community Tenant Association, Mission Economic Development Corporation, Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco, Bill Sorro Housing Program, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice were present to support the bill at the hearing. “California’s Ellis Act was specifically designed to allow legitimate landlords a way out of the

rental business, but in San Francisco this state law is being abused by speculators who never intend to be landlords,” said Senator Leno, D-San Francisco. “As a result, longtime tenants, many of them seniors, disabled people and lowincome families, are being uprooted from their homes and communities. The five-year holding period in my bill would prevent these devastating evictions from forever changing the face of our diverse city.” SB 1429 authorizes San Francisco to prohibit new property owners from invoking the Ellis Act to evict tenants for five years after the acquisition of a property. The bill also prohibits property owners that exit the rental housing business through the Ellis Act from later using the Act on new properties they acquire. A new report from Tenants Together, California’s statewide organization for renters’ rights, reveals that most Ellis Act evictions in San Francisco have been initiated by investors, not landlords. Tenants Together’s report, The Speculator Loophole: Ellis Act Evictions in San Francisco, released last week, is available online at www.tenantstogether.org/ellisreport.

A group of New York lawmakers have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asking that the Department of Justice conduct an investigation into the fatal 2012 shooting of an unarmed black teen by New York City police officers. “In the interest of seeking truth and justice, we are asking for an extensive and exhaustive investigation into the killing of Ramarley Graham," reads the letter, which the New York Daily News reports was sent to Holder's office last month by members of the state's Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic and Asian Legislative Caucus.

Family Wants the Case of Woman Killed by a Police Officer Reopened

By Kate Abbey-Lambertz The family of a woman who was accidentally killed by a police officer is asking for the case to be reopened after he was cleared of charges. On a Saturday in July of 2012, Adaisha Miller attended a fish fry hosted by Detroit Police Officer Issac Parrish at his home in the city. Miller, 24, was celebrating -- she would have turned 25 the following Monday. Parrish was off-duty, but wearing his gun. While Miller was dancing with him that night, the weapon accidentally discharged, puncturing her lung and striking her in the heart. She died after she was taken to a hospital. "All my daughter did was try to enjoy her 25th birthday. Now, instead of planning her 25th birthday party, I have to plan her funeral," Miller's mother Yolanda McNair told WXYZ-TV at the time.

Woman Brutally Attacks Elderly Couple

Little Rock, AR — Joecelyn Thornton, a 33-year old woman from Little Rock, was caught on video attacking an elderly couple at a local restaurant when they asked her to stop cursing while she was talking on her cell phone. It happened at Cuisine of China, a local Chinese food restaurant, where 74year old Don Francis and his 69-year old wife Bettye told police that were brutally attacked by Thornton after they politely asked her to stop cursing. The surveillance video seems to confirm their story. Thorton is seen walking over to their table and jumping in to the elderly man’s face, provoking him. His wife intervenes, and then Thornton jumps into her face and starts provoking her. The elderly woman then pushes Thornton out of her face, and then suddenly Thornton starts attacking

Joecelyn Thornton her, shoving her into a table and punching her in the face. Employees at the restaurant were reportedly in complete shock. They called police immediately, and Thornton was arrested on the spot. She is now being charged with 2nd degree battery and 2nd degree assault. The elder couple, meanwhile, were so shaken up that they did not comment to the media about what happened.

"I think what we have seen is kind of a breakdown in civility in Washington, D.C., and that becomes important because I think it has substantive impact," Holder said. "We are celebrating the 50th anniversary passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. If we had a Congress or an executive branch-legislative branch relationship in the way that we now have one, where there's this lack of civility, I wonder whether or not you could have forged the necessary compromises, things that involved personal relationships, in order to get such a landmark piece of legislation passed.

Homeowners Desire American-Made Solar Panels

Reining in Prom Expenses By Jason Alderman If you've got teenagers, you already know how expensive high school can be. Besides food, clothing and school supplies, a whole host of extracurricular activities are competing for a share of your wallet – even as you frantically try to save for college and your own retirement. One of the biggest expenses you'll encounter is prom. Gone are the days of borrowing dad's suit and crepe paper streamers in the school gym: Today's proms are often more like a Hollywood premiere with limousines, designer gowns and swanky afterparties. I'm not kidding. According to a recent nationwide survey conducted by Visa Inc., the average U.S. family with a high school student attending the prom expects to spend $978 this year. Surprisingly, that's down 14 percent from last year's survey average of $1,139 per family. A few other interesting statistics the survey uncovered: • On average, parents plan to pay for about 56 percent of prom costs, with their kids picking up the remaining 44 percent. • Parents in lower income brackets (less than $50,000 a year) plan to spend an average of $733 – a considerable share of the family budget. Thankfully, that's down significantly from last year's $1,245 estimate. • Those earning over

$50,000 will spend an average of $1,151. Here's a breakdown of how those prom dollars typically get spent: • New prom dresses often cost $100 to $500 or more. • Plan on spending another couple hundred for shoes, accessories, flowers and professionally styled hair, nails and make-up. • New tuxedos cost several hundred dollars, not to mention the formal shirt, tie, studs and shoes you'll need. Even renting all this will likely run over $150. • Figure at least $80 an hour plus tip to rent a limousine for a minimum of four to six hours. • Prom tickets typically cost $50 to $150 per person, depending on venue, entertainment, meals, etc. And don't forget about commemorative photos. • The couple will probably need at least $50 for a nice pre-prom meal. • After-parties can run anywhere from a few bucks at the bowling alley to hundreds of dollars for group hotel suites. As with weddings and vacations, spending on prom can easily spiral out of control, especially if your teenager isn't used to sticking to a budget. Use this as a learning experience by getting your kid involved making tough decisions, helping to prioritize expenses from vital to non-essential. To help with the prom budgeting process, Visa

launched a free smartphone app last year called Plan'it Prom. You simply enter your budgeted amounts for each item and then track actual spending on your phone or tablet as you shop. The app also includes budgeting tips, a photo gallery and a timeline for tracking preprom deadlines. Plan'it Prom is available at the iTunes store, the Google Play store and from www. practicalmoneyskills.com/ prom. Here are a few prom cost-saving ideas: • Shop for formal wear at consignment stores or online. As with tuxedos, many outlets rent formal dresses and accessories for one-time use. • Have make-up done at a department store's cosmetics department or find a talented friend to help out. • Split the cost of a limo with other couples, or drive yourselves. • Team up with other parents to host a pre-prom dinner buffet or after-party. • Take pre-prom photos yourself and have the kids use their cellphones or digital cameras for candid shots at various events. Bottom line: You want to ensure your child has a memorable high school experience, but not at the expense of your overall budget.

(NewsUSA) - With solar installation booming in the U.S., a growing number of consumers are choosing American-made solar panels for their homes. To date, about 13 gigawatts of solar electric capacity have been installed nationwide -- enough to power over 2 million households. Simultaneously, 82 percent of people who responded to a recent solar survey said they support making solar panels on American soil. "We've all heard about the importance of manufacturing to the American economy," said Robert Fortunato, whose California home hosts 26 solar panels made by SolarWorld in Hillsboro, Ore. "We selected our U.S.-made solar system for its quality, reliability and financial return and because we think it's important to support American workers." Solar installers and electricians offer a range of domestic products.

"We made a decision at PetersenDean to only source our solar products from North America. As a result, we're supporting the American economy, supporting American workers and reinvesting those dollars back in America," said Jim Petersen, founder of PetersenDean, a nationwide solar and roofing company. According to industry experts, here are the top reasons that homeowners select solar panels from American manufacturers:

Quality and reliability. A residential solar system is, effectively, a power plant installed on a home rooftop, and it's designed to last at least 25 years. Consumers trust American solar manufacturers to stand behind their product guarantees because these companies rank high in measures of quality, responsiveness to warranty claims, accessibility for customer service and compliance with safety requirements.

Home Decorating For Mass Appeal:

Choices You Make May Affect Your Home Sale

By Phoebe Chongchua One of the advantages of owning your own home is the ability to decorate it and make structural changes the way you like. However, when it comes time to list and sell that same home, those changes may help or hurt you depending on what you have done to the house. When it comes to homes listed for sale, being unique can be both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing if what makes the home unique is appealing to most. For instance, the only lot with a larger than normal backyard. It’s a curse, if the home is unique because of its outrageous color, or incredibly small storage space. If, for example, a two bedroom home was remodeled to remove a closet and make the room a den or study, this could negatively impact the home because it will appear to many buyers that while the room can be

Phoebe Chongchua used for sleeping, it’s not practical because it lacks a closet. Many buyers will see this as a flaw. While they might appreciate space for a den or office, it’s better to not remove the closet because then when it comes time to sell it, the den can be shown as both - an office or a bedroom. Wood floors offer a timeless appeal to the masses. Yes, some may not prefer wooden floors but, generally speaking, most buyers will appreciate

them. They also know that they can easily cover up the wood with their own area rugs to keep the home cozier-appearing in winter months. Wood floors, kept in good condition, can create an anti-aging look. Over the decades they hold their appeal. Slightly worn furniture. I don’t mean worn as in the baby threw up on the sofa. Rather, I’m referring to pieces of furniture that have slight imperfections. These imperfections can actually enhance the furniture. Instead of being seen as an eyesore, this style, sometimes called “distressed”,is often coveted and more easily assimilated into current decor because any slight imperfections are perceived as “the way the piece was meant to be” rather than a flaw. When you buy something that must be kept precisely perfect like new in order for it to look good, DECORATING, See page 12A

In order to afford a modest, two-bedroom apartment at Fair Market Rent in Southern California, renters need to earn at least $26.88 per hour in the Los Angeles metro region, $21.54 in the Riverside/ San Bernardino metro region, and a high of $31.62 in Orange County. This is Southern California’s 2014 Housing Wage, revealed in a report released today. The report, Out of Reach 2014, was jointly released by the National Low Income Housing Coalition, a Washington, DC-based research and advocacy organization, and the Southern California Association of Non Profit Housing (SCANPH). Every year, Out of Reach provides this figure, referred to as the Housing Wage, and other housing affordability data for every state, metropolitan area, combined non metropolitan area, and county in the country. An estimated 65% of renters in Los Angeles metro region, 58% in the

Riverside/San Bernardino metro region, and 60% in Orange County do not earn enough to afford a two-bedroom unit at the Fair Market Rent. It is estimated that 61% of renters statewide cannot afford this rent. According to Robert Dhondrup at SCANPH, “the divergence between the ever growing costs of housing to real income levels of Southern California working families has gotten wider. Real income has stagnated or remained flat for most Southern California households but the cost of housing, even with the financial crisis, has kept increasing – especially with regards to the rental market. Those foreclosed families are now renters adding to the market pressure.” Working at the minimum wage in California, a family must have over three full-time wage earners working full-time, or one full-time earner working 130 hours, to afford a modest two-bedroom

apartment. This would demonstrate that arguments calling for increasing the minimum wage at both the State and local levels, as with the City of Los Angeles, could provide a substantial amount of economic relief to these minimum wage households. The national Housing Wage is $18.92 in 2014. In California, the Fair Market Rent (FMR) for a two-bedroom apartment is $1,354. In order to afford this level of rent and utilities – without paying more than 30% of income on housing – a household must earn $4,514 monthly or $54,168 annually. Assuming a 40-hour work week, 52 weeks per year, this level of income translates into a Housing Wage of $26.04 in California – the second highest in the nation only behind Hawaii. In California, the estimated mean (average) wage for a renter is $18.50. In order to afford the FMR RENTS, See page 12A

(NewsUSA) - Home health care is an essential part of the nation's health care system. Rapid advances in technology and new ways health care is provided to patients have created new opportunities to receive care at home. The health care community is constantly evolving and understanding that not only does home health care reduce the overall cost of treatment, it also improves the quality of life of patients and their families. In fact, a recent study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office revealed that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life.

Should Older Workers Have to Pay More for Their Pensions?

By Lisa McElroy You’ve undoubtedly heard the advice again and again: If you are close to retirement age, you should max out your contributions to employer-sponsored retirement plans. But requiring older employees to contribute more than younger ones to a pension fund is another matter entirely, a federal appeals court in Baltimore held last week. “Certain older Baltimore County employees were forced to pay more for their pensions than younger coworkers,” David Lopez, the general counsel of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, said in a statement. “That’s age discrimination, plain and simple.” The EEOC brought the case on behalf of two corrections officers (ages 51 and 64) and others in the same situation. Counting from the officers’ initial complaint to the EEOC,

the case has dragged out more than 15 years. The decision stemmed from a policy the county put in place in 1945. It required older workers to contribute more to the county’s pension fund than younger workers, even if they were not planning to retire at the set retirement age. In 2007, the county changed the policy to require all workers to contribute the same amount, regardless of age.

The county argued that employees could receive a pension on retirement starting at age 65, even if they had only been county employees for a short time. Therefore, it said, older workers should pay more to make up for the fact that their contributions would earn less interest over a shorter time than those of younger workers. The court rejected this argument, saying that the county’s WORKERS, See page 12A

Five Financial Risks to Consider in Retirement Most people don’t know that 80 percent of mountain-climbing accidents don’t occur on the way to the summit – they happen on the way down, says financial expert and extreme sports enthusiast David Rosell. Although arriving at the top of the mountain is considered by many mountaineers to be one of life’s greatest accomplishments, I can tell you firsthand that summiting is not the ultimate goal for climbers,” says Rosell, CEO of Rosell Wealth Management and author of “Failure is NOT an Option,” (www.DavidRosell.com). “They know that most climbing accidents and deaths occur on the descent. With this in mind, they will tell you that their objective is to reach the summit and get back down alive to see their family and friends. They understand that the second half of their journey presents

the greatest risk and requires the most planning.” “Likewise, we need to think of retirement as the descent from the financial mountain, which can be treacherous.” Retirees and pre-retirees need to evolve from the traditional view of retirement, especially with so much legitimate concern about an unprecedented retirement crisis on our immediate horizon, he says. According to a 2013 report by the National Institute on Retirement Security, 45 percent of working-age American households have no retirement savings. That’s on top of the 3.5 million baby boomers who have been retiring each year, and will continue to do so for more than a decade. To help his clients thrive while experiencing descending their own financial mountains, Rosell briefly touches upon five major financial risks many experience during retirement.

• Inflation: During the second half of your financial journey, it’s critical that you’re able to maintain your purchasing power. Inflation simply means that every year your money buys a little – or a lot – less than it did the year before. Currently, inflation is 3.5 percent, which doesn’t sound like much. However, even if the rate holds steady and doesn’t increase, prices will have doubled in 20 years. • Longevity: According to U.S. Census Bureau figures, the over-80 population is increasing five times faster than the overall population. By 2030, the demographics of 32 states will resemble those of Florida today. With more golden years to play, you’ll want the funding to make them fun! • Health/long-term care: Sadly, the escalating costs associated with long-term care during retirement can RETIREMENT, See page 10B

Know when to work out Staying active and exercising for at least 30 minutes a day is a great way to fight off illness, but for allergy sufferers, be sure to plan workouts accordingly. Pollen counts are highest in the morning, so it’s best to plan to work out during

a time of day when pollen levels are a bit lower. Allergy-proof the house Allergens exist indoors and outdoors, so take steps to make your home allergy-proof. A simple way to keep allergens at bay is to wipe your feet and take off your shoes when entering the home.

to encourage being active on your lunch break. Instead of sitting with coworkers during lunch, choose to take a walk outside around the building to get your blood pumping. If your company has a fitness center, you can also choose to get a light workout in before returning to your work. Wear ankle weights. Ankle weights assist in toning up the legs and getting the heart rate up with every step you take. If your career involves a lot

of walking back and forth, place a light to medium weight around your ankles and make sure you take full strides while keeping your back straight to practice using proper posture. Take the stairs. Taking the stairs to floors in your building that aren’t too high up provides a cardio workout to help get the heart pumping and the blood flowing into the body. As you use the stairs, make sure to engage every muscle in the legs. For an extra workout, take the stairs two at a time! Use public transportation when possible. Using the bus or the train when possible will encourage the use of the greatest vehicle there is: your own two feet! Walking from one destination to another will give you a reason to get your legs and feet moving to become a healthier you. Not to mention, walking at a quickened pace helps keep the heart healthy.

Super Busy? Sneak Fitness Into Your Day

By Alana Shakur The hustle and bustle of today’s society often leave us moving from one activity to another in a quickened pace, causing us to neglect proper eating, sleeping and fitness habits. When we choose to neglect health maintenance, the body can experience imbalances and leave you functioning more slowly, making you more accessible to sickness. The American Heart Association now recommends that everyone have at least 150 minutes of physical activity weekly to stay fit and healthy, but sometimes it can be difficult to get that rigorous activity in while on the move. If you are a busy bee looking to remain healthy, check out some of these simple tips on how to remain active with a busy lifestyle. Keep athletic shoes with you. Placing a pair of good walking or running shoes in your work bag or at your desk at work is a great way

Sleep Apnea May Be Linked to Poor Bone Health

By Robert Preidt People with sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder, may be at increased risk for the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis, especially women and older people, a new study suggests. Sleep apnea causes repeated, brief interruptions in breathing during sleep. Untreated sleep apnea can increase a person’s risk of heart disease, heart attack and stroke. “Ongoing sleep disruptions caused by obstructive sleep apnea can harm many of the body’s systems, including the skeletal system,” said study coauthor Dr. Kai-Jen Tien, of Chi Mei Medical Center in Tainan, Taiwan. “When sleep apnea periodically deprives the body of oxygen, it can weaken bones and raise the risk of osteoporosis,” Tien said. “The progressive condition can lead to bone fractures, increased medical costs, reduced quality of life and even death.” For the study, published April 15 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, researchers APNEA, See page 12A

This New Invention will Save Lives of Facebook to Force You to Get a Second App for Messaging African-American Children

San Diego, CA — A typical story played over and over again in AfricanAmerican families all over the country, which involves the drowning of African-American children, yet it goes un-noticed, and under-reported. It may be a swimming pool, a lake, a river or the ocean, all too often, are places of no return for a disproportionate number of AfricanAmerican children. The following story is true, however, at least partially typical. The bad news is, that this story ends in the death, and destruction of a typical African-American family. The good news is, that a possible remedy was born out of this tragedy. This tragic beginning led to the birth of the Alfred Jones Anti-Distress Device (AJADD) U.S Patent # 8,659,435 B2 issued Feb. 24, 2014, the first true swim safety system. In the fall of 2009 there was a swimming party for children which was given by a middle-class AfricanAmerican family with two children, that were using their home as a fun house for children of various economic backgrounds. One of the children, named Albert who was 7 years old, came from Los Angeles to San Diego, with his two sisters all under the age of 14, were brought by the

Drowning is the second highest vause of accidental death among African-American children — but this new invention will save lives. Sister-in-law of the homeowners. The sister-in-law’s name was Muriel, Albert’s teacher. During the party, the children were having great fun, playing water games, diving, and having fun with water toys. Muriel who was also a professional lifeguard kept a somewhat watchful eye on the pool along with a designated parent on duty to make sure that the utmost safety was observed. The party was held at the home of George and Wendy McKinney who were the homeowners. During the party, the kids were playing dead man float, and as fate would have it, Albert got in trouble, yet no one notice, and before anyone caught on, Albert was at the bottom of the pool. Once discovered, Wendy, and her 9 year old son Tyler, along with Mu-

riel immediately dove to the bottom of the pool, and brought Albert to the pools edge, began to perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation (CPR), as one of the parents called 911. The fire department was only a mile from their home and the paramedics were there in minutes. The paramedics rushed Albert to the hospital. George and Muriel left from the home devastated with a friend, and fellow parent named Barbara, who drove them to the hospital. When they got there, they were greeted by a member of the hospital staff who whisked them off to a special room. They were all asked to sit down, and designated hospital staff began to tell them how their medical team had tried desperately to save Albert, but, “he was gone.” INVENTION, See page 10B

the “Heartbleed” computer bug, according to security experts who warned that the risks extended beyond

just Internet Web servers. The widespread bug surfaced when it was disclosed that a pernicious flaw in a widely used Web encryption program known as OpenSSL opened hundreds of thousands of websites to data theft. Developers rushed out patches to fix affected web servers when they disclosed the problem, which affected companies from Amazon.com Inc and Google Inc to Yahoo Inc. Yet pieces of vulnerable OpenSSL code can be found inside plenty of other places, including email servers, ordinary PCs, phones and even security products such as firewalls. Developers of those products are scrambling to figure out whether they are vulnerable and patch them to keep their users safe. “I am waiting for a patch,” said Jeff Moss, a security adviser to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and founder of the Def Con hacking conference. Def Con’s network uses an enterprise firewall from McAfee, which is owned by Intel Corp’s security division. He said he was frustrated because people had figured out that his email and Web traffic is vulnerable and posted about it on the Internet - but he can’t take steps to remedy the problem until Intel releases a patch. The Heartbleed vulnerability went undetected for about two years and can be exploited without leaving a trace, so experts and consumers fear attackers may have compromised large numbers of networks without their knowledge.

Well if you'd like to continue to do so, you'll soon be forced to download an entirely separate app from Facebook's current one. Yes, it's true: Facebook is planning to disable messaging in its main apps for the iPhone and Google's Android and demand its users download Facebook Messenger, an app dedicated solely to chatting with friends. "We are starting to notify people this week and will be rolling this out on Android and [Apple's] iOS to a handful of countries over the next couple of weeks," a Facebook spokesperson wrote. (The company notified some European users that soon they will be unable to message with the main Facebook app.) Facebook claims splitting off its messaging service benefits customers, since people get messages 20 percent faster on a dedicated messaging app. And Messenger, introduced in November, already ranks

By Taylor Casti The technology blog BGR gave the public what appears to be the first leaked images of the ever illusive phone that Amazon is supposedly making. If the photos are legit, this much-anticipated gadget will sport not one, not two, but six cameras that may be used to produce 3-D images. The online retail giant, which has been getting its fingers into all sorts of hardware lately, hasn't announced the speculated Android device yet. But there have been rumors circulating about the phone for quite some time -- much of it credible. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that the phone would begin shipping by

the end of September and that it will have a screen capable of displaying 3-D images without glasses. To that end, the phone prominently features six cameras -- one rear-facing, one front-facing "selfie" camera and four others on the front of the phone -- that seem to support the 3-D rumors. According to BGR, those four extraneous cameras will serve to

track the user's face and eyes to make adjustments to the screen in real time, so that the 4.7-inch screen can give its owner a 3-D image without those dweeby movie-theater glasses. For those concerned by recent reports about Apple raising the price of the iPhone 6 by $100, BGR reports that Amazon's phone will likely be lower-cost.

By Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO Google Inc updated its terms of service informing users that their incoming and outgoing emails are automatically analyzed by software to create targeted ads. The revisions more explicitly spell out the manner in which Google software scans users' emails, both when messages are stored on Google's servers and when they are in transit, a controversial practice that has been at the heart of litigation. Last month, a U.S. judge decided not to combine several lawsuits that accused Google of violating the privacy rights of hundreds of millions of email users into a single class action. Users of Google's Gmail email service have accused the company of violating federal and state privacy

and wiretapping laws by scanning their messages so it could compile secret profiles and target advertising. Google has argued that users implicitly consented to its activity, recognizing it as part of the email delivery process. Google's updated terms of service added a paragraph stating that "our automated systems analyze

your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored." A Google representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Women Get Unequal Pay for Equal Work

Progressives Should Campaign Against the Supreme Court

Julianne Malveaux

Bill Fletcher, Jr.

When John and Ann started working on January 1, 2013, John had an immediate advantage. Because women earn 77 cents for every dollar men earn, it took Ann until April 11, 2014 to earn the same amount of money that John earned in the calendar year of 2013. The issue of unequal pay is so important that President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act 50 years ago. While we have come a long way, baby, the pay gap has remained stubborn. This is why President Obama signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act as soon as he assumed office. This year, to commemorate National Equal Pay Day (that’s the day Ann finally earns as much as John), the president signed an Executive Order protecting workers from retaliation when they speak of unequal pay in the workplace (one of the ways employers can maintain unequal pay is to make discussing pay grounds for firing). The president, through the Secretary of Labor, is also requiring federal contractors to provide data on pay, race, and gender to ensure that employers are fairly paid. Furthermore, the Senate is considering the Paycheck

Fairness Act, which may pass the Senate, but not the House of Representatives. We know all about John and Ann, but what about Tamika? If women earn 77 percent of what men earn, what about African American women? Women surely have come a long way, but some are moving far more slowly than others. How many African American women are there in the Senate? Among Fortune 500 leaders? In other positions of power? What about pay? African American women earn about three quarters of what other women earn, meaning that if it takes Ann until April 11 to catch up with John, It will take Tamika until about June 1 – about another six weeks – to catch up. Tamika earns in 18 months what John earns in 12 months. Even African American women with the highest levels of education experience these differences. White men with a postgraduate degree earn a median salary of $1,666 a week African American women earn a median salary of $1,000 during the same time period. For all the talk of pay equity and paycheck fairness, the status of African American women is largely ignored. It wouldn’t take much

for the president, or some of those feminist groups who support paycheck fairness to throw in a line or two about African American women. Nor would it hurt African American organizations, especially those who serve Black women, to point out this injustice. Are African American women invisible? Don’t we count? African American women raise the majority of our children, and shoulder many of the challenges in the African American community. Ignoring us in a conversation about unequal pay simply marginalizes our experiences and us. The focus on “overall” data is yet another way of marginalizing not only African American women, but other people of color well. Reporting aggregate data gives some notion of economic progress. Reporting specific data about African American women and men makes it clear, for example, that African Americans experience depression-level unemployment rates. WOMEN, See page 10B

‘Hammerin’ Hank’Aaron Slugs it Out with Obama Attackers er revealing that deep down inside, he’s a man’s man. Criticism over his use of the KKK analogy is nothing compared to what Aaron went through while chasing Ruth’s record. “I was being thrown to the wolves. Even though I did something great, nobody wanted to be a part of it. I was so isolated. I couldn’t share it,” Aaron said. “For many years, even after Jackie Robinson, baseball was so segregated, really. You just didn’t expect us to have a chance to do anything. Baseball was meant for the lily-white. Now, here’s a record that nobody thought would be broken, and, all of a sudden, who breaks it but a black person [Bobby Bonds].” But instead of been cheered, Hank Aaron, the ultimate gentleman, was receiving hate mail and death threats on a daily basis. A reporter asked Aaron why he kept copies of hostile letters that he had received four decades earlier. He replied, “To remind me of the past and the present.” One letter that he received in the past read, “You are not going to break this record established by the great Babe Ruth if I can help it……. Whites are far more superior than jungle bunnies.

amendment in light of the court’s further opening of the gates to super-money. So, what do we do? The first and most immediate step must be the formation of a very broad coalition to take initial steps towards securing such a Constitutional amendment. This coalition needs to make the midterm 2014 elections about the super-rich and money in elections. In that sense, candidates need to be running against the Supreme Court. Progressive candidates need to make the McCutcheon decision their battle-cry and use it to demonstrate the extent to which the 1 percent is moving at breakneck pace to derail any pretense of democracy. And they must commit to fighting for a Constitutional amendment to remove corruption from the electoral process. The McCutcheon decision must be understood in tandem with the voter suppression efforts that we have been witnessing over the past eight years. These are steps that are being taken to hold back the future, that is, to deflate the power of the growing majority in

the U.S.A. that is seeking broad and significant social and economic changes. To the extent to which people of color, youth, seniors, veterans, and others are blocked from voting and to the extent to which the faucets are opened for the super-rich to contribute inordinate amounts of money to the candidates that they now own, elections lose any meaning other than being a veneer over a very clever dictatorship of wealth. The time has come to refocus the November elections on what is really at stake: the greed and avarice that now feels completely comfortable showing its face in public.

Beyond the Rhetoric:

No, This is Not a Black Thing

Harry C. Alford

George E. Curry Major League Baseball’s home run king, Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron has just knocked another one out of the park. But this time, Aaron wasn’t on a baseball diamond. Aaron stood up boldly on the national stage and blasted a political homerun against Republicans who have made a sport of attacking President Obama. In a recent interview with USA Today, Aaron, now 80 years old, said, “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated……. The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.” The occasion was Aaron’s 40 anniversary of breaking Babe Ruth’s home run record on April 8, 1974 with his 715th home run. In the aftermath of Aaron’s comparison of Republican opponents of President Obama to the Ku Klux Klan, there was a firestorm of criticisms aimed at Aaron, particularly in social media. Some baseball fans who preferred to retain a safe image of Aaron socking one into the stands and nev-

When I first heard the news, my response was one of both outrage and a calm lack of surprise. I knew that there was a very real chance that the Supreme Court, in its McCutcheon v Federal Election Commission decision, would make it even more difficult to have limits on campaign spending. I suppose that I did not want to believe it. Thus, when the decision was issued, I found myself both resigned and furious at the same time. The U.S. Supreme Court’s majority has made a mockery of right-wing allegations that it is liberals who have been engaged in so-called judicial activism. The conservative majority of the Supreme Court has gone out of its way to ensure the political supremacy of what the Occupy Movement called the 1 percent – the plutocrats. There have been discussions ever since the Supreme Court’s notorious decision in the Citizens United case that there is need for a Constitutional amendment that addresses campaign finance. We now have an even more urgent need for such an

My gun is watching your every black move.” Other letters expressed similar views. “It wasn’t just the thousands of hate letters and death threats. He could handle those,” teammate Dusty Baker recalled. “It was the isolation. He couldn’t even stay in the same hotel as his teammates. His name was listed in one room, and he checked into another. Constantly, he had a security guard at his side.” Baker also said, “Hank never showed his fear, but we did. I remember one day we were told that there was going to be this guy in a red coat that was going to shoot Hank in Atlanta. Hank told us not to sit by him on the bench. Me and Ralph (Garr) couldn’t concentrate one game. We kept looking for the guy in the red coat the whole game. Hank acted like it didn’t bother him, but I know there was a lot of pain.” Another former teammate, Rich Casanova, recounted, “He told me, ‘I don’t AARON, See page 10B

Racial discrimination does exist in this world but certainly not at the level it did prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It has been waning but sometimes it will lift its “ugly head”. Whenever that happens it should be snuffed out quickly and firmly. As one proud Jamaican member of the National Black Chamber of Commerce commented to me about the subject, “Show me that I am late; my price is too high, my product is unsafe. Don’t you ever say no because of the color of my skin, for I will fight you with every breath of my life.” That is wise advice and we must be certain not to shrug off pressure or rebuke by saying, “It’s because I am Black.” So when we hear people say that our President or Attorney General is being criticized because they are Black, we should check them. Heck, the fact of the matter they are where they are because of the timing and the fact that they are Black – at least considered Black. The fact is, as a whole, our nation is in a very critical state of uneasiness. It is pure chaos right now. We don’t look assuring to our allies and our enemies are smiling at our apparent weakness. Yes, right now we are in a giant cesspool of deceit, timidity, corruption and cowardice. Great nations don’t act like this and it has nothing to do

with “Black”. My people it is time to get a grip on the realities at hand. “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” Let me note some examples. We have had a nonaccountable State Department. I hope Secretary John Kerry can turn it around. Can you believe that this major agency had been operating without an Inspector General for five years? What does that mean? The IG is responsible for oversight and accountability. During the absence of an IG the State Department cannot account for over $6 billion in procurement. Who got paid for what? Did they actually do the work? Was strict procurement law followed? They don’t know. Many of the files are lost and some have been pilfered. Where is the investigation and who is going to jail? The five Mafia families of New York could not have been more corrupt. Oh yes, the State department is still playing dumb about the Benghazi attack which is now a scandal. Oh, how they lied on all of the Sunday news channels about it – like we weren’t going to find out. Four of our people were murdered by Al Qaida linked persons and we won’t even arrest them for trial. They fear what will come out in court. So they stall and stall and stall. Justice is not served.

The same goes with Homeland Security. The “Fast and Furious” disaster put hundreds of illegal weapons onto the streets. We lost a border patrol officer and hundreds of Mexican citizens and they stall and stall and stall. Justice is not served. The National Security Agency (NSA) in its sweeping/wiring of telephone and email communications is an ongoing disaster. Recently, we find that the USAID agency ran a covert operation in Cuba. The mission of the USAID is: “Our Mission: We partner to end extreme poverty and to promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity.” Not anymore! They took 500,000 cell phone numbers of Cuban citizens (from NSA) and began spamming them on a cooked up Twitter account covertly placed in Spain. Money was funneled through the Cayman Islands. The intent was to provoke discontent among Cuban citizens against their government. Sounds a little bit like the Arab Spring affair which backfired tremendously on us. Syria, Egypt, Libya are probably lost to democracy because of our botched THING, See page 10B

JUSTICE From page 1A representatives from other social justice organizations. They also provide via their monthly meetings an important resource for networking and collaboration among social justice organizers. The fundraiser will feature as its keynote speaker actor and activist Martin Sheen, best known for his roles in movies like “Badlands” and “Apocalypse Now,” and as President Josiah Bartlett on the TV show “The West Wing.” The festivities will include a gourmet buffet lunch and a live and silent auction featuring such unique items as a ride-along with Oxnard Police Chief Jeri Williams and a tour and lunch with California State University Channel Islands President Dr. Richard Rush. “Currents of Change” is an annual event and one of the organization’s primary fundraisers. Now in its fifth year, the name points toward the fund’s mission, which according to Small is to see “a change in solving social justice problems in the community.” While Small doesn’t consider her organization to be political in the direct sense, she does think that the Social Justice Fund has an overall political and social impact. “We stand up for areas that we think are not right, especially related to such things as access to education,” she said. Small believes that if anyone has an interest in social justice, the Social Justice Fund provides many ways to get involved in community activism. “It’s a good opportunity for people who are interested and want to be involved in making positive changes in the community,” she explained. It is one of the largest donorled funders for social justice programs as well as one of the largest social justice educators in the county. The cost of the fundraiser is $75 per person. Sponsorships are also available starting at $250. Reservations can be made through their website at http:// www.socialjusticefundvc.org.

WILLIAMS From page 1A to the dire needs of these children and to inform the public about the reality of child abuse. “We want to inspire people to step out of their comfort zones and do something about it,” she said. “We want to hold social workers and judges accountable when they continually reunify abused children with their abusers.” The Children’s Wall of Tears was recently featured on Saturday, March 29 as part of the first annual Celebrating Children’s Day at Plaza Park in Oxnard. “Because we focus on the effects of child cruelty and child death,” said LeMond-Alvarez, “we decided to have a very positive event to kick off child abuse month.” The gathering drew fivehundred people and was supported by Oxnard Police Chief Jeri Williams, one of the keynote speakers, and Commander Eric Sonstegard, who helped provide patrol support and pointed them toward the K9 unit and the DRAGGS (Drag Racers Against Gangs and Graffiti). The support from Williams, Sonstegard, and their fellow police greatly impressed NAACC board member Pauline Daerr. “I called him and he suggested the K9 unit and also the DRAGGS,” she said. “So he gave me the contact numbers for them and they were there the whole four hours. It was amazing.” LeMond-Alvarez, a retired officer with the Oxnard Police Department, thinks it’s important to recognize the role of the police in the fight against child abuse. “Police officers see child cruelty every day and it takes a toll on them,” she noted. “It was wonderful seeing the officers mingling with the children at our event.” To show their appreciation, LeMond-Alvarez and Daerr met Williams on Wednesday, April 16 at the Oxnard Police Department and presented both her and the K9 unit with separate certificates of appreciation. “We do appreciate the time the Oxnard police department spent there,” said Daerr. “It was a four-hour event and we had police protection the whole time.” “We’re just very thankful for the generous participation of the department,” said LeMondAlvarez. “There were no questions. They were right on it. They wanted to be part of our event.” Chief Williams thanked LeMond-Alvarez and Daerr and was quick to give credit to members of her department, particularly the family protection unit, for their participation and service. “I accept this on behalf of my agency,” said Williams. “I can’t do my job without all their great help, especially the work of the family protection unit.

They are some of the most committed, amazing, professional, conscientious human beings I have ever met.” LeMond-Alvarez hopes that the wall of tears and the interest it generates will raise the community’s awareness about the prevalence of child abuse and neglect. “It was a resource event for the community,” she said, “to let them know where they could go if they had problems, and it was also to celebrate the first annual Children’s Day in Oxnard.” More information about NAACC and the Children’s Wall of Tears can be found at www. thechildrenswalloftears.org. SUCCESSFUL From page 2A it. It’s having a target and the shot is your actions towards that target. They know exactly what they want out of life, where they want to be and what their purpose is. They are constantly doing, and their actions speak louder than their words - and if they are chasing something, there is nothing that will stop them. Unsuccessful people fear change: They think that what they are doing right now will never change and they are content with where they are in their lives. As long as they have the bare minimum of their basic needs, they are okay with it and don’t really change their lives much because they are afraid to lose that consistency. Successful people love innovation and change: They are always thinking about what is next, not what is going on right now. They welcome risks into their lives and are okay with sacrifice and risking it all for the greater good of their goal. They understand change is what brought humanity to its current advanced state, so they are always looking for it. We are all born and we all will die. It’s what we do with our time in between that makes us special. It’s the habits, actions and beliefs that separate us - not anything else. Lonnie G.

PERSON From page 2A It is such a shame how finding dependable people has become such a rare find. It feels good to know that when a person says they are going to do something, it just gets done and with excellence. You don’t have to wonder or worry. You don’t have to follow up. The person just does it. You know that you can count on them, which gives you a sense of security and also builds trust. We all love it when we have people like that in our lives. Those types of people make life more pleasant and simply make the world a better place. The fact of the matter is we can all be that type of person. It is a matter of choice. No more empty promises. No saying things just because it sounds good. Let’s each say what we mean, in a kind way. Let the people you engage with see a side of you that looks great not matter what circle you may be in. Be a person of your word! Inez Lanns was born and raised in Ventura County. She currently has a blog on her web site: www.inezknows.com.

ABUSES From page 3A heard testimony indicating many of the challenges facing the Bureau can be tracked to delays in spending authority, inadequate staffing resources and expertise, and an inability to prioritize cases and establish clear and workable procedures. “Given the large amounts of public money these private and for-profit institutions receive through financial aid and veteran’s education programs, a strong oversight structure is necessary to ensure accountability in spending taxpayer dollars,” said Assemblymember Williams. The primary goal of the hearing was to identify the statutory changes necessary to ensure regulation of schools that promotes student success and supports quality innovative programs, while also preventing predatory practices. Of the 26 recommendations raised in the hearing background report, committee members expressed strong interest in reestablishing the Bureau as a public board, increasing staffing and resource expenditure authority, and requiring degree-granting institutions to obtain accreditation.

In college she studied journalism and worked in TV news before following her real passion, travel. She has married the two together in this new series for public television. In the inaugural season of Rhythm Abroad, Pierce spans the globe bringing in a new era of travel entertainment in each episode. • Episode 101: Viewers journey to the sumptuous topography of Tahiti in French Polynesia and observe Pierce learning the fast hip shaking indigenous dance of Tahiti. • Episode 102: Pierce is transformed into a Spanish Gypsy as she has a foot-stomping good time learning Flamenco as well as sampling the culinary delights of Seville. • Episode 103: The Swiss Alps are noted for skiing and winter sports, but Pierce finds an annual summer festival devoted to local folklore with the largest gathering of alphorns in the world.

• Episode 104: A celebration of the Blackfoot First Nations people where Pierce dances in full regalia set against the natural beauty of Alberta’s Waterton Lakes National Park at the annual Blackfoot Arts and Cultural Festival.

JACKSON From page 6A helps solve the statewide challenges created by unused prescription drugs.” A response to the growing problem of prescription drug abuse, accidental poisonings, and traces of pharmaceuticals found in drinking water, Senate Bill 1014, as it was introduced in January, would have required drug manufacturers to create, finance and manage a statewide system for collecting and safely disposing of unwanted prescription drugs that people have in their homes. The bill was modeled after an Alameda County ordinance that was the first of its kind in the country. SB 1014 had the support of more than 100 local government and environmental groups, but faced stiff opposition from the pharmaceutical industry. GORELL From page 6A covered by the Whistleblower Protection Act, those rights are protected by the State Personnel Board, an agency which has no authority over legislative staff. The bill establishes a clear process in which legislative staff can bring allegations of improper acts to the Committee on Rules of the Assembly or Senate for investigation. The language of the whistleblower protection bill will be amended into AB 2065. HARRIS From page 6A arrested in Jonesboro Arkansas by the Independence County Sheriff’s Department, Jonesboro Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration on February 13, 2014 and charged with one count of felony possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Both are currently being held without bail at the Craighead County Jail and are being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Arkansas. In the summer of 2013, agents with a California Department of Justice task force in the Central Valley initiated an investigation into Jose Magana for suspected marijuana trafficking. Further investigation revealed that Magana and members of his organization were trafficking narcotics including methamphetamine and cocaine from Mexico through the Central Valley of California to be sold as far away as Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, New York and Pennsylvania. Agents also discovered that Magana and his organization were supplying narcotics to a Nuestra Familiaaffiliated street gang operating in Kings County. The announcement of these arrests and seizure was delayed due to the ongoing nature of this investigation. HOLDER From page 7A “And that’s essentially what I was decrying, the fact that we can’t somehow separate whatever our personal feelings

are and focus on our functions as members of the executive branch or as legislators. I think that I’ve done a pretty good job in doing that, but it’s frustrating at times,” Holder said. Holder also noted that he hadn’t planned to mock Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) during his appearance last Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee, but said Gohmert’s strange “asparagus” remark last spring “sort of stuck” in his mind. NYPD From page 7A according to The Daily News. “It is imperative that the Department of Justice send a clear signal that the lives of black and brown minority men matter.” Graham’s family and members of the New York City Council held a press conference outside Manhattan Federal Court to call on the DOJ. “Ramarley should be here today, but instead I spent his 21st birthday at the cemetery,” Graham’s mother, Constance Malcolm, told reporters. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in August that his office would review Ramarley’s death for civil rights violations. According to the Daily News, that review is still ongoing. The Department of Justice said last August it would review the case. FAMILY From page 7A that a “thorough, unbiased” investigation was “not conducted and that there was a blatant disregard for due process, policy and procedures in regards to timely disclosure of evidence, information and results.” The petition goes on to state that the family learned from the local news that the investigation had ended, and complains that Miller’s family and friends were never interviewed.

DECORATING From page 8A think of a white rug. You’re in for a difficult road to keep it in its original pristine condition. Chances are that rug will be tossed out in the not-too-distant future. Custom-designed, builtin furniture that’s meant for a specific piece of technology such as a computer or a TV can limit your home and its appeal. During the period in which the TV actually fits in the built-in cabinet, it may have mass appeal. However, because we are in rapidly changing technological times, the danger is that your beautiful custom built-in furniture may not fit future TVs. Keep your decorating and remodeling to timeless styles and you’ll increase your home’s mass appeal among buyers. RENTS From page 8A for a twobedroom apartment at this wage, a renter must work 56 hours per week, 52 weeks per year. Or, working 40 hours per week year-round, a household must include 1.4 workers earning the mean renter wage in order to make the two-bedroom FMR affordable. The California Legislature is currently debating SB 391, the California Homes and Jobs Act. This legislation would provide a dedicated source of state funding for affordable home production. As the costs of housing keep increasing for most California households, SB 391 would help to make more affordable housing available and help alleviate the high costs of housing.

ADVISOR From page 8A Finley identifies your best allies -- and the voices that do not have your best interests at heart – when it comes to money management: Do trust: • Your No. 1 advocate – you: The best thing you can do right now is to educate yourself so you can make sound financial decisions. A great start is to embrace the concept of paying yourself: Put away at least 20 percent of your income for your future, which requires a lifestyle of living below your means. • Real teachers -- Most people want something from you, but some truly want to give. Look for classes at local colleges; workshops sponsored by nonprofit organizations, and even websites geared to im-

proving your money decisions, including SaveandInvest.org, MrMoneyMustache.com and JaneBryantQuinn.com. Beware: • Most financial advisors -- Most financial advisors, especially those employed by massive, nationwide firms, are trying to sell prepackaged financial products. • Advertisements -- Advertisers are not just selling products – they’re trying to sell happiness. Learn to view advertising messages with a discriminating eye so that you purchase what you truly need – not what they tell you to need.

Harry Belafonte, Martin Luther King Jr. Naya Rivera and Big Sean's Estate Settle Document Lawsuit Engagement is Off

NEW YORK — Lawyers say Harry Belafonte will retain possession of historical documents he acquired during his friendship with Martin Luther King Jr. Belafonte and the King estate said they have settled a lawsuit. The singer had sued the estate in Manhattan federal court in October to establish rights to the documents. They include an outline of a Vietnam War speech by King and notes for a speech he never got to deliver in Memphis, Tenn. There also is a condolence letter from President Lyndon B. Johnson to

By Kory Grow A museum honoring the musical and cultural contributions of artists from Otis Redding to Marvin Gaye is set to be built in Nashville. The planned National Museum of African American Music will also honor black musicians who were local to Music City—Frank Howard, Jimmy Church and Marion James—given Nashville 's long history of music outside of country. Construction could begin as early as next year, according to The Associated Press, as it is part of the redevelopment of the site of the old Nashville Convention Center downtown. The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce created a task force in 2000 to study the idea of honoring black musicians, but development on

the museum was not immediate. The project had a budgetary goal of more than $43 million, but that was later reduced when the city made the Convention Center available. The city committed $10 million to the project in 2006, and Mayor Karl Dean has said that the offer is still good. "I believe there is strong

interest and demand for this type of museum, and the planned location is in a vibrant section of our downtown," he said. The museum's goal is now $25 million, and its President and CEO H. Beecher Hicks told The Tennessean that it is about two-thirds of the way to that goal. He said that it was not necessary to achieve the full funding for the project for construction to commence. In addition to serving as a tourism attraction, the museum will honor Nashville's history of black music. The museum has already started community programming including teaching Nashville schoolchildren about instruments like spoons, the washboard bass and the cigar-box guitar. It also has started an emerging artist concert series.

Davis takes an opening night bow. (Photo Credit: Joseph Marzullo) ing lows — his womanizing ways were well documented in the media, and a career-derailing addiction to cocaine cost him almost everything. Since those days of decadence, Davis, who also starred in the 70s sitcom 'That's My Mama,' has survived triple bypass surgery, became heavily involved in religious endeavors and restored his acting career — appearing in countless TV series and movies. "Let's be real, during that period of time I ended up taking two and three and four steps backwards in my career and although I bounced back, I hurt myself in a way that was irreparable," Davis confessed. "Thank God I repaired a whole lot of damage and put my life together and

redeveloped and redirected myself with God's help, and I'm just grateful for life and opportunities." In Aladdin, based on Disney's 1992 animated blockbuster, he takes on the role of Princess Jasmine's father, the ruler of Agrabah. A far departure from the character in the movie, the role has been expanded quite a bit. "I've seen the movie and of course in the movie The Sultan was sort of a nonentity," Davis explained. "I mean, he was a meek and mesmerized puppet leader and he was short and stubby and white. So it was quite different. So I knew if they were entertaining the idea of using me for the role, it would be different. I only saw the sides, I didn't see the entire script until we finally started rehearing and upon reading the script I was very, very happy that my character figured very strongly in the show and I think it gave me the opportunity to contribute to the piece by bringing just a little dignity and gravitas." Davis can still be seen regularly on television too. Classic episodes of ‘That’s My Mama’ often airs on the TV One network. He’s also resumed his role as host of ‘Praise the Lord’ series on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Clifton Davis Returns to His Broadway Roots in Disney's 'Aladdin'

By Karu F. Daniels With his new role as The Sultan in Disney's Aladdin, Clifton Davis is back on Broadway after a very long spell. Ask the veteran entertainer why it took him more than 40 years to get back on the boards (since appearing in 1971's Two Gentlemen of Verona) and he'll take the opportunity to clarify his record; he starred in Lincoln Center's production of Tom Stoppard's Hapgood, opposite Stockard Channing in the mid-1990s. "Actually, all along the way, I have been doing some theatre," the 1972 Tony Award nominee explained. "I came back to New York in 94 and I was in Hapgood for six months. So I was back on Broadway, so to speak." "Now granted, that's still 19 years ago but I am thrilled to be back," the debonair and eloquent thespian quipped. In between his someodd 20 year breaks from The Great White Way, Davis has ascended to soaring heights — composing the #1 R&B hit song 'Never Can Say Goodbye' for The Jackson 5 in the 1970s, and during the 1980s starring in 'Amen,' the NBC sitcom that netted an average of 30+ million viewers weekly.

Kevin Navayne to Star in New Marcus Garvey Film

Kevin Navayne Hollywood, CA — Marcus Garvey is alive and well. At least the feature film is. The film which has seen its way through production company to production company will settle with IDK productions which will produce and submit the film to all the usual suspects of film festivals in the hopes of being acquired by a distributor or studio. Garvey will be played by model and relative new comer to the acting world Kevin Navayne. Navayne who himself is Jamaican will have to lose those model good lucks as he will be required to gain approximately 65lbs while growing a beard and mustache to his usual clean cut face. The film will focus on the rise and fall of the legendary civil rights leader. Pre-production is slated to begin in fall of 2014.

Anthony Mackie maintain one of the longest running romantic relationships with his girlfriend. During an appearance

on the April 11 episode of the “Queen Latifah Show,” Mackie revealed that he and his “Falconette” have been dating “off and on” since they were 7-yearsold. “It was funny. I was coming from a very bad school and going to a very good school,” he said. “And when I walked into second grade it was Dr. Seuss Day, and we had the little hot plate out and the teacher was making green eggs and ham. So I walk in and I looked and I see this little girl with these ratty pigtails and skinny legs, and I was like ‘WOW!”

Third Annual African American Women’s Luncheon “Stepping Up and Stepping Forward”

AAW Committee member Lillian Pipersburg and family From page 1A actor and Cover Girl model. She has also graced the Staples Center with the Star-Spangled Banner and performed at the House of Blues. Keynote speaker Qiana Charles, a Senior Community Liaison with Southern California Edison in Rosemead, demonstrated skills in communicating with a diverse demographic of women. Tapping into their potential as women, ranging in age from young to a beautiful 90 year old, Ms. Charles quickly had them standing to their feet aligning themselves not with ostriches, head buried in the sand, not peacocks, all beauty and very little else, but eagles.

Eagles soaring high above the mundane, focusing on others, like themselves to help, mentor and protect. When asked about the African American Woman’s Luncheon organization, whose motto is “Coming Together, Being Together”, Ms. Sims-Moten stated, “It actually isn’t an organization, but it feels so much like that. I think sooner or later it will become a more formal organization, but for right now, it’s about four women putting this event together because we just want to help each other help others. This really started about three years ago as a pilot based on conversations I’ve had with other women in Santa Barbara

Diane Boggess and Julie, an attendee at the luncheon County, where we are less than two percent of the population. We felt somewhat disconnected and isolated; so, there was something we needed to do to go about addressing that starting with a luncheon. The first luncheon that we had was at Mosher Hall, a UCSB meeting facility. There were three or four women on the committee. We actually cooked our own food and did all sorts of things. It was quite successful. Then, the second year luncheon was a validation. Yes, we still continue to want this. We need this; we have fun when we are together connecting. However, some of the feedback was that we needed to network during the

luncheon. This time the third one was really about validation and about “stepping out, and stepping forward” in our communities, about being more visible, most importantly to ourselves. Realizing that we are such a great resource and, if there are things that we want during this opportunity of getting together, then we need to be able to do that, because when we do that we form lasting bonds, we form alliances, we realize that there are more resources then we’d realized that are just around the corner. Today was very evident of the resources that we have. We had people put things on a board

Jackie Joice, Qiana Charles, Wendy Sims-Moten, Maylynda Hale that talked about services that they offer and the things that they do. I’m sure there were a lot of women surprised “oh, a massage therapist, a person who walks the dog or who sings, someone who tutors”, women who do all sorts of things that. Because we don’t get together, we don’t know that. So, even when on those long nights when I’m sitting up wondering what to do or is this is the right thing to say do, I know that in the end it’s the right thing to do. I see it on these faces of these women, I hear it in the conversations, I hear them enjoying laughter with their voices. And, just as our key speaker noted spoke about today, it’s important for us

as women to support our young girls that are coming up. When asked about the keynote speaker’s eagle analogy Sims-Moten said, “Yes, eagles soar and they rise above, they fly really high in the sky. You see them every now and then and say, “Ooh”! She really brought that home. When I see an eagle, I’ll remember that conversation and where I was, with my other sisters. And now they’ll know “Eagle sisters going on. African American eagle sisters is a good theme. A theme that plants seeds when you come and interact with other people. Many others will talk about what we need to do. Don’t be an “Ostrich, don’t WOMEN, See page 10B

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that a federal bankruptcy court issued a key ruling in an action involving Body Shaping Gyms, Inc., formerly known as Gold's Gym in Oxnard ("Gold's Gym"). Gold's Gym filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on December 16, 2013, after the District Attorney's Office filed a lawsuit in the Ventura County Superior Court alleging that Gold's Gym has been violating unfair business practices and false advertising laws. On March 13, 2014, the District Attorney's Office, on behalf of the People of the State of California, filed a motion in bankruptcy court to request dismissal of the bankruptcy action or, in the alternative, appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee to oversee the business operations of Gold's Gym. Yesterday, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Robin L. Riblet granted the People's request to appoint a trustee after finding "abysmal business behavior" and "gross mismanagement" of Gold's Gym. The resulting order means that the U.S. Department of Justice will appoint a trustee who will be responsible for the management and operation of the business and, if deemed appropriate, the filing of a plan of reorganization.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On April 18, Oxnard Police Officers responded to a call of stabbing victim at the 1500 block of Kipling Court.

“1. Corporations in the area must be more involved with the youth. 2. Events like today’s luncheon need to be published their events and involvement to the communities and businesses. 3. We should have an event for teenagers like the one today and use it to nurture and mentor. 4. We need to demand the negative shows our youth are exposed to off the air. 5. The African American (eagles) leaders need to step up, and forward. Let others (our youth know who they are) set examples.”

GM Waited Years to Recall 335,000 Saturn Ions Mrs. Armida Galvan Monares for Power Steering Failures, Documents Show City Of Oxnard Employee of By Tom Krisher DETROIT — General Motors waited years to recall nearly 335,000 Saturn Ions for power steering failures despite getting thousands of consumer complaints and more than 30,000 warranty repair claims, according to government documents released Saturday. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the government’s auto safety watchdog, also didn’t seek a recall of the compact car from the 2004 through 2007 model years even though it opened an investigation more than two years ago and found 12 crashes and two injuries caused by the problem. The documents, posted on the agency’s website, show yet another delay by GM in recalling unsafe vehicles and point to another example of government safety regulators reacting slowly to a safety problem despite being alerted by consumers and through warranty data submitted by the company. A recall can be initiated by an automaker or demanded by the government. Both GM and NHTSA have been criticized by safety advocates and lawmakers for their slow responses to a

GM admitted knowing about the problem for more than a decade, yet didn’t start recalling the cars until February. The company says it knows of 13 deaths in crashes linked to the ignition switches, but family members of crash victims say the number is much higher. The Ion was one of a few GM cars included in a March 31 recall of 1.5 million vehicles worldwide to replace the power steer-

ing motors; the recall also covered some older Saturn Auras, Pontiac G6s and Chevrolet Malibus. If cars lose power steering, they can still be steered, but with much greater effort. Drivers can be surprised by the problem and lose control of the cars and crash. In a statement issued Saturday, GM admitted that it didn’t do enough to take care of the power steering problem. NHTSA closed its investigation into the Ion because GM had decided to recall the

cars, according to the documents released Saturday. “This raises more troubling concerns about GM’s and NHTSA’s actions as well as questions about whether NHTSA has the capability to effectively do its job,” said Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo. “I intend to aggressively pursue these issues as our congressional investigation into GM and NHTSA continues.” DeGette was a ranking member of a House subcommittee that grilled GM GM, See page 10B

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. 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, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales and Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting and Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www. priorityposting.com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-2802832 or visit the Internet Web site www.auction. com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-730-2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http:// www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-09254942-ED . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 2786 CALLE OLIVO, THOUSAND OAKS, CA 91360-0000 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein.

The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $652,841.00 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon

Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08001430-13-1. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

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.

WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable in full at time of sale by cash, a cashier’s check drawn by a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state). At the main front entrance to the County Government Center Hall of Justice, 800 S. Victoria Ave., Ventura, CA all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and state, and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 4945 BURSON WAY, OXNARD, CA 93036 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made in an “AS IS” condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $665,261.93 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. 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, pur-

suant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1350892. 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 will be bidding on a lien, not 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.

WOMEN From page 15A be a peacock”, be the eagle because they soar, they nurture the young. When the young are ready to encourage them to leave the nest, they have what they need to be able to do that. That’s exactly what she’s saying with regards to us being nurturers to our young women, they need us. I remember being young, I probably didn’t appreciate it so much then, but many women were supporting me in so many different ways. I hope that eventually through this alliance that it becomes a support and a foundation for our young women. Life gives you different things, but if you have a foundation from which you can rise from, then you can conquer anything. When asked about the Christine the yoga Instructor, who provided breathing exercises or “Chakras” (which promote physical and spiritual health in the body). Ms. Sims-Moten stated, “Absolutely, we wanted to incorporate and have more substantive things. When people come here, they’re going to be getting something, gaining something from this event. Not only the camaraderie and the alliances, but something for me personally. I think that we as African Americans are the last ones to take care of ourselves. Therefore, sometimes our health suffers. I think yoga in a sense helps you free from your mind and helps it and your body become one with each other. We chose “Chair yoga” because we had elderly women here, some were frail, and we wanted to make sure that they were included in the whole thing. Christine and her co-teacher were very happy to oblige”. When asked about the many different cities represented this year Ms. Sims Moten stated, “We had people from Santa Maria , we had Lompoc , Ventura , Oxnard , and Los Angeles County much appreciated because we are so small and fragmented. Here in Santa Barbara . We also had some women from UCSB who we’ve not necessarily been connected with and seems often disconnected with the community. Another thing that’s really important, how do we let parents know that when their kids are coming up here…as African American parents, they need to know that they have a community behind their children. And so, that’s another goal, to keep us connected and make sure that we touch base with UCSB and Santa Barbara City College and other organizations…that they know there’s a community that’s going to support these students when they need to”. When asked how do you get others to cooperate Sims-Moten stated “Because it’s not a small thing to do, three or four women that have been involved since the inaugural feel that they’re getting something out of this as well, their being connected. There is something about helping, I know for me, that stirs really deep when I connect with others and I see their happiness, their appreciation for it, so we continue to go forth. None of us is higher than the others. We’re all working together. There are no levels. I may be the visionary, but I know that I don’t put the technical things together and I want to say I appreciate every gift that each one brings. I’m no more important than each part that they bring so, us together bring this peace”. When asked about the plans for next year, Sims-Moten stated, “Yes, on the second Saturday for sure in April, we’ll be doing it again In the next upcoming years, it’s really going to be intentional, “Stepping Out And Stepping Forward” to really engage our young women and become mentors and make a connection. That’s absolutely the next goal in forming that There’s no greater resource than ourselves because we can connect, we can understand our experiences like no one else can. So, when the days get long, when the nights

are long and the days get early, I still hearken back to these last three (luncheons) . I hear the laughter; I hear the comments “thank you so much…I am so glad that I was here”. So that keeps me going, that keeps me saying that we want to do it, we want to connect with other cities that are doing it”.

likely to be more severe than the ones Lily Ledbetter faced. The pay gap for African Americans is larger and too many live in food deserts where the cost of food is higher even as the quality is lower. Lily Ledbetter deserves the limelight she earned because she brought this matter to the president’s attention. There’s a Black woman out there who can tell a similar or more compelling story. She, too, needs to be lifted up. We ought to know her name, see her name on a piece of legislation. Ledbetter is an ordinary shero, a working class woman who stood up for her rights. She reminds us that, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “You don’t have to be great to serve.” We need a sister to remind us that we don’t have to be elected, appointed, or anointed to make a difference. When African American women are marginalized, so are our girls. They are left with the mistaken impression that we have not fought for our rights. We’ve been fighting and fighting, but somehow the story of a sister struggling is too unremarkable to be noted by the media. Race and gender continue to shape the opportunities that African American women have, and race and gender continue to marginalize us Black women. When do African American women have equal visibility in the policy and imagery arena? When we demand it and when we stop applauding our own marginalization.

RETIREMENT From page 9A make the possibility of outliving one’s retirement income a reality for many. Statistics reveal that as we age, there’s an increased probability of our eventually needing assistance with basic daily activities. The truth is that most of us will need long-term care in our later years. • Market risk: Economic recessions have occurred throughout the history of modern economics and always will, averaging one almost every nine years. If the market loses 50 percent one year and then increases 50 percent the following year, where are you? Many people get this wrong; after the fall and subsequent rise of 50 percent, you will have lost 25 percent. • The sequence of returns: Gains or losses, or the order in which you receive your returns, can have a major impact on your retirement portfolio. It can mean the difference between having enough income in retirement and running out of money too soon. Be careful when an analysis states that you should achieve your goals by obtaining a specific rate of return. In most cases, this statement has not accounted for the AARON sequence of returns.

GM From page 1B CEO Mary Barra earlier this month during a hearing on the ignition switch problems. NHTSA said Saturday it was “actively working to bring this investigation to a resolution” when GM issued the recall. “Over the past ten years, NHTSA defect investigations resulted in 1,299 recalls involving more than 95 million vehicles and items of motor vehicle equipment, which has helped us reduce vehicle fatalities to historic, all-time lows,” the agency said in an emailed statement. The number of complaints and claims with the power steering issue appears to be high when compared with other recent recalls that were preceded by NHTSA investigations. In March, three recalls — none of which were GM vehicles — were issued after two or fewer complaints. There were 29 warranty claims in one case, 263 in another and none in the third investigation. All three cases covered fewer vehicles than the Ion recall. A search of the agency’s database records shows that Ion owners started complaining about power steering failures as early as June 2004, and the first injury accident was reported to NHTSA in May 2007. The owner of a 2004 Ion reported driving 25 mph and tried to turn the steering wheel, but it locked, and the car crashed into a tree. “Saturn stated the vehicle is not a defect,” the complaint said. Another driver who filed a complaint in July 2010 said that one evening, “midway around a bend, my vehicle’s electric power steering went out and straightened my wheel, putting me into oncoming traffic.” “I could have died and killed another driver,” said that person, who also owned a 2004 Saturn Ion. The government does not identify people who file complaints with NHTSA. Some of the people who complained about the Ion power steering found on the Internet that GM had recalled the Chevrolet Cobalt for the same problem in 2010. The Cobalt is nearly identical to the Ion. “Very disturbed that the Cobalt was recalled for this problem and not the Saturn,” one owner wrote in 2010. “Makes no sense since the power steering is the same in both vehicles.” GM spokesman Greg Martin wouldn’t comment directly on the Ion power steering Saturday, but pointed out a quote from the company’s new global safety chief Jeff Boyer when GM issued the power steering recall. “We have recalled some of these vehicles before for the same issue and offered extended warranties on others, but we did not do enough,” Boyer said in March. “With these safety recalls and lifetime warranties, we are going after every car that might have this problem, and we are going to make it right.” Martin also said GM has created a team that includes safety in the company’s product development. MONARES From page 1B Armida is well respected and liked by all the members of her department as well as other departments and the public. Customers ask for her specifically because they know that she is willing to accommodate them. Armida is very considerate about her fellow employees. She always manages to see about their well-being even in the most stressful times when the work load is high and there is a shortage in staff members. She always does that with a smile on her face. Armida received an employee of the quarter plaque, a $250 cash award and is now eligible to receive a $500 cash award if she is selected Employee of the Year. AOL From page 1B an email from an Aol email address, it’s best not to open it, and make sure they know their account was compromised. The hack seems widespread, although Aol has yet to comment on the scope of the incident.
