Oxnard, CA -- It was almost 25 years ago that Dr. Irene and Bedford Pinkard of Pinkard Youth Institute decided to invite Oxnard students to Prairie View A&M University to watch a cousin graduate from the animal husbandry

program. The trip was the inspiration for the Black College Tours, which turns 25 years old this year. “After the first trip, the students were so excited,” said Dr. Pinkard. “We knew we held a project that had to be expanded

and continued. The program, which began with a visit to one college over a weekend, now includes visits to three or more colleges and universities and has now developed into a unique educational program.” The group, includ-

ing one parent, six students and the Pinkards, flew to Houston, Texas. When the group returned, they explained how the experience had changed the way they viewed college and their educational options. The six students who

attended the first tour were a part of the “A Heart for Youth” event sponsored by Pinkard Youth Institute. It was held to raise funds to partially fund the college tours, as well as a leadership academy at a local PINKARD, See page 14A

Around the Tri-Counties Your Words can Keep you Stuck in a Rut! Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan What keeps most people stuck are their own words and wrong thinking. As long as you believe you are missing something you will never be what you can be because deep down you will feel you can only be all you can be when that “thing” that you feel is missing shows up... and it won’t ever show up because it simple does not exist. If you keep saying to yourself I need more of you name it, I need it: more time, money, energy, information, certainty, resources. Without these, we tell ourselves, we can’t do what

we want to do. This perception that there is something missing or we don’t have what we need to create what we want is the biggest source of unhappiness and dissatisfaction in the world today. It is also the greatest lie we tell ourselves. It causes us to dream about “becoming” something big, to hold out for doing that one big thing that is so big that we can’t see a way to do it, let alone get started. We have fallen in love with the idea “becoming” more than “being” and that very belief keeps us stuck were we are. We are on an endless search for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, all the while not realizing that we are standing on the pot of gold…in fact we are the pot of GOLD! Many people travel their entire lives on this journey, believing they will find true happiness when they finally get somewhere when, in fact, they are lost right where they are. Paid Advertisement

The reason people find themselves getting stuck is because they don’t think who they are is enough enough to drop that weight, get that promotion, build the ministry or close that next big business account and be financially independent,. This causes us to resist the way things are for the way we want them to be in the future. Before you can create your future, you have to accept the way you are right now. You have everything you need right now!! Here is an analogy: People living in scarcity and struggle see the cup as half empty. People who are positive thinkers see the cup as half full. People who understand their true connection to God see the cup as overflowing. But people who are living in the Flow and in Alignment know they ARE the cup. What’s keeping you from seeing yourself as “The Cup”? You’re Words… The Bible WORDS, See page 12A

Santa Barbara hosted the 50th anniversary conference for the Western Division of the American Choral Directors Association (WDACDA), and teachers, conductors, composers, singers, and voice aficionados of all stripes descended on the coastal mecca by the hundreds to talk shop, show their wares, and get inspired — and humbled — by the knowledge and talents of their peers. The anticipation was mounting like a crescendo, and every indication points to bright major sevenths in multiple octaves.

Choosing a Doctor

You and your doctor (primary care provider) share an important relationship. It is focused on your health. So, you need to choose a doctor you’re comfortable with. The doctor should also fit your needs. Where do you begin? List Your Priorities
 Before you start your search, think about what’s important to you in a doctor. Be sure to consider the

doctor’s office, too. Then, write down some questions. For example: What type of doctor is he or she? What is his or her focus? If you have a preexisting medical issue, like diabetes, does that doctor have experience with your condition? Does the doctor’s office accept your insurance? Which hospital does the

doctor refer to? Is the office near your home? What are the office hours? Is the doctor or staff nurse able to answer your questions over the phone? Is e-mail an option? Tap Friends and Neighbors
 One of the best ways to find a good doctor is by talking to people you trust. Ask your family and friends which doctor they see. Find out what they like about their doctor. If you are new to an area, you can call a hospital or medical school for referrals. Make a list of the doctors you would like to see. Ask Lots of Questions Call the doctor’s office first on your list. Ask to speak with a nurse or the office manager. Find out if the doctor meets your needs. Then see if he or she is accepting new patients. It’s always wise to call your insurance company directly to verify coverage for a particular doctor. Meet Face-to-Face Schedule an initial visit with the doctor. Then, ask yourself the following questions. Did the doctor: Spend enough time with me? Make me feel comfortable? Answer my questions? Explain things so I could understand? Remember, you and your doctor are a team. Take the time to make sure you have the right partner.

Your Feet Tell the Story

By Valecia Weeks Special to the NNPA from the Houston Forward-Times IF YOUR FEET COULD TALK…. what would they say? Would they say, “I feel nice and pretty after that relaxing pedicure.” Would they say, “Please put some socks on me so I can avoid calloused heels.” Or would they say, “Let me tell you just how unhealthy your entire body is”? Ladies, isn’t it a nice feeling to be able to go to the salon and have your feet pampered – Nails done, feet scrubbed…the works. With the information that I am about to give you, ladies I think you will agree with me that those feet deserve any pampering that we may give them. Have you ever thought of other ways your feet can be beneficial? If you

ever want to take a quick glimpse at your health, take a sneak peek at your feet 1. Red flag: Toenails with slightly sunken, spoon-shaped indentations could indicate anemia. Internal bleeding such as ulcers or heavy menstrual cycles can cause anemia. 2. Red flag: Frequent foot cramping (charley horses) could mean that your diet may lack sufficient calcium, potassium, or magnesium. Pregnant women in the third trimester are especially vulnerable thanks to reduced circulation to the feet. 3. Red flag: A sore that won’t heal on the bottom of the foot can be a sign of diabetes. Elevated blood glucose levels lead to nerve damage in the feet — which means that minor

scrapes, cuts, or irritations caused by pressure or friction often go unnoticed. This problem overlooked can lead to ulcers or possible amputation. 4. Red flag: Cold feet may be nothing — or it may indicate a thyroid issue. Women over 40 who have cold feet often have an under functioning thyroid, the gland that regulates temperature and metabolism 5.

Sports News Report Details Vile Behavior of Marcus Smart can Learn from Fan Incident Dolphins Players

Metta World Peace: By Cliff Brunt Knicks forward Metta World Peace believes Marcus Smart can learn from the fallout that will come after Smart shoved a fan during Oklahoma State's game at Texas Tech. If anyone would know, it's the player formerly known as Ron Artest. In 2004, Artest infamously ran into the stands and attacked a Detroit Pistons fan who he thought threw a beer on him. Artest was suspended for 73 regular-season games and the playoffs before being traded the next season. Late in the game at Lubbock, Texas, Smart confronted Jeff Orr after the Texas Tech super fan appeared to say something to the All-American guard. Smart shoved him with two hands, and teammates quickly pulled Smart away as he pointed back in Orr's direction. Smart was issued a technical foul and did not play the final seconds of the game. No decision on a punishment for Smart has been made by the Big 12 or Oklahoma State. Texas Tech is still investigating, trying to speak with people who were in the area around Smart and Orr when the altercation occurred.

Metta World Peace "We are conducting a very thorough investigation, trying to collect everything we can," Texas Tech spokesman Blayne Beal said. "We are in conversations with Mr. Orr." There are no fan-behavior guidelines printed on Texas Tech basketball tickets, Beal said, but the school follows the Big 12's sportsmanship policy. Before each game the public address announcer reads a few sentences about sportsmanship that includes that inappropriate fan behavior will not be tolerated. World Peace said Smart -- who is projected to be a high NBA draft pick -might benefit from learning how to deal with obnoxious fans at age 19, before he becomes a pro and millions of dollars are on the line. "Just in general, I heard

By Brian Mahoney NEW ORLEANS — Carmelo Anthony said he knows "for a fact" the Knicks won't trade him, and said he would be open to staying in New York for

less than a maximum contract. Anthony has said he plans to become a free agent this summer. Anthony ruled out any chance the Knicks would move

Marcus Smart the kid is pretty good and a potential pro," World Peace said. "So those types of challenges on the court when you're playing and fans are rooting against you -- that was a great lesson learned, so that hopefully when he does become a pro, he'll be able to kind of withstand the fans that are rooting against him on the road." World Peace also said Smart needs to learn to control his energy. "I think that emotion and that fire could be directed towards winning on the court instead of directed other ways," he said. World Peace said more guidelines should be in place for college fans because college players don’t get paid. He said fans should have more leeway at NBA games.

Carmelo Opens Up About Future

Carmelo Anthony him to avoid the possibility they could lose him for nothing in July. "I know for a fact I'm not being traded," Anthony said at the NBA's All-Star weekend. "There's two things: I know for a fact I'm not being traded and I'm not going in there and saying I want to be traded." New York can pay him around $30 million more than any team, but Anthony said he wouldn't insist on making the Knicks do it. "As far as the money, it don't really matter to me. If I go somewhere else I get paid, if I stay in New York I get paid," Anthony said. "So as far as the money goes, that's not my concern. My concern is being able to compete on a high level, at a championship level coming at this last stretch of my career." The Knicks aren't doing it now. They are 20-32, one of the league's biggest disappointments after winning the Atlantic Division last season, and are wasting a strong season by Anthony that has him ranked second in the league with 27.3 points per game while also averaging 8.6 rebounds.

Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito, along with two other lineman, bullied teammate Jonathan Martin, according to a report released by lawyer Ted Wells following an investigation into the matter ordered by the NFL. The report released on Friday concluded that Incognito, along with linemen John Jerry and Mike Pouncey, "engaged in a pattern of harassment directed at not only Martin, but also another young Dolphins offensive lineman, whom we refer to as Player A for confidentiality reasons, and a member of the training staff, whom we refer to as the Assistant Trainer." The harassment detailed in the report included racial and homophobic insults along with taunts about Martin and his family members. A second-year player, Martin abruptly left the

Jonathan Martin team in October and sought treatment for emotional distress reportedly relating to mistreatment by his teammates. Incognito, who will become an unrestricted free agent in March, was suspended by the Dolphins in November and missed the final eight games of the regular season. In an interview with Jay Glazer of FOX Sports conducted that same month,

Charles Barkley:

Incognito admitted to using obscene language in communications with Martin but insisted the players had been friends. In a series of tweets two days before Wells released his report, Incognito lashed out at Martin, claiming "the truth is going to bury you." Contrary to Incognito's tweets, Wells' report clearly rejected the notion that Martin fabricated his claims. The Report rejects any suggestion that Martin manufactured claims of abuse after the fact to cover up an impetuous decision to leave the team. Contemporaneous text messages that Martin sent to his parents and others months before he left the Dolphins -- which have never before been made public -- corroborate his account that the persistent harassment by his teammates caused him significant emotional distress.

'Public at Large is More Homophobic than Guys in the Locker Room'

Charles Barkley doesn't think an openly gay basketball player would have any problem being accepted by his teammates. He thinks the bigger problem facing an out player would be being accepted by the general public. "I think that they're going to be safe with their teammates. I think the public at large is more homophobic than guys in the locker room," Barkley told CNN's Wolf Blitzer when asked how an openly gay NBA player would be received by his teammates. "If you go back and look at that Michael Sam interview, he told his team over the summer. He never had an issue and none of those players outed him on Insta-

Charles Barkley gram or Twitter or all that other social crap." The NBA Hall of Famer spoke with Blitzer a day after his interview with President Barack Obama aired on TNT. During the interview,

Obama praised former Missouri defensive lineman Michael Sam for publicly coming out as gay a few months before the NFL draft. Blitzer asked Barkley why he raised the issue of gay rights with Obama. "Well I think it's important as a black man to always be inclusive. I'm always against any form of discrimination. I learned that from Bill Russell," Barkley said. "As a black player, we always want to be inclusive. And we've all played with gay players. Listen, we should not be discriminating against anybody. And I think it's an insult to gay people to think that they're going to be looking at their teammates in a sexual way."

Yasiel Puig the fences that surround the complex of fields at Camelback Ranch. Koufax is enthused by the Dodgers' good mix of experience and youth. He was as excited as anyone by what he saw last year in rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig. "It was crazy," Koufax said. "It was just fun to watch. This was exciting because the team was struggling. He came up and kind of ignited what eventually happened. It looked like in May that they were going to be having a really dismal year. He and a couple of other things turned it around."

Puig's confidence and aggressiveness sometimes led to mistakes in the field and on the base paths. "He's so physically talented," he said. "Everybody makes the comparison to Bo Jackson. The Cardinals had a guy who played football and baseball, Brian Jordan. These guys are so strong and so fast. Big, strong and fast. A combination you don't always see." "If the showmanship doesn't involve a bad decision, it's fine. People love it. You have a great arm, you want to show it off. But I'd like to see him throw it to the right place all the time," Koufax said. The 23-year-old Cuban hit .319 with 19 home runs and 42 RBIs in 104 games. "He's young. The biggest thing is he's not played against competition as good as he is. So you're always able to have your physical ability make up for whatever else you do. He's learning. I'm sure it's going to happen. He has too much talent," Koufax said.

Sandy Koufax Likes What He Sees in Yasiel Puig, Dodgers

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Sandy Koufax wasn't wearing a Dodgers uniform when he walked around the practice fields Monday at the team's spring training camp. "That's not my job," he said. Even without the famed No. 32 on his back, players and fans alike knew who he was. At 78, the Hall of Famer is the face of Dodger tradition and represents what Clayton Kershaw, Yasiel Puig and their current Los Angeles teammates hope to achieve. In his second year as a special adviser to team chairman Mark Walter, Koufax arrived at camp to work with the pitchers. He will also serve as a consultant throughout the season. Koufax likes what he sees from a Dodgers club that reached the NL championship series last year before losing to the St. Louis Cardinals in six games. "This is a great team if it stays healthy," he said after signing autographs for fans who lined up along

By James Clingman Part I The recent New York Times article, “Hard Times at Howard,” written by Charlayne Hunter-Gault was indeed riveting. It conjured up memories of October 15, 2003, when I sat in a Winston-Salem, N.C sanctuary and listened as 40 Black church leaders and Black college presidents publicly announced a self-empowering strategy to fund North Carolina’s 11 HBCUs. The name of that new organization was North Carolina Black Churches for North Carolina Black Colleges, or NCBC2. Begun after a fundraising effort I started for Barber-Scotia College, the NCBC2 brought high hopes for HBCUs. John Mendez, president of the Ministers’ Conference of Winston-Salem and Vicinity, said, “There is no logic to having millions of so-called educated people (most from HBCU’s) and thousands of churches that have enlightened and saved millions of Black people, and yet

Black colleges and universities.” Less than two years later, the effort ceased. Why can’t we sustain economically-based movements? Why don’t we get “fired up and ready to go” when it comes to helping one another with our dollars? We see reports on the dire financial state of our HBCUs from time to time, but we seldom mount a sustainable effort to help them. Howard University, having been at the pinnacle of HBCUs for many years, is now in the news for its financial challenges. Let’s be clear, Howard is in no way “up against the wall,” “drowning in debt,” “on its last leg,” or “about to go bankrupt.” The state of Howard University is quite strong, to borrow a typical Washington D.C. phrase. So please don’t sound a false alarm. However, there are issues that affect all educational institutions to which Howard University is not immune, and they are part of its continuous improvement plan.

Los Angeles, CA – Representative Karen Bass (D-Calif.) released the following statement after Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s announcement of a new program that will provide minors in Los Angeles County who were victims of sex trafficking with real resources to get them off the streets and into care. "I want to personally thank District Attorney Lacey for her important proposal. For far too long minors who were victims of sex trafficking were also victimized by the criminal

justice system who treated them as criminals and not victims. These young peo-

AB 1631 will help cut down on identity theft and fraud by requiring EDD to investigate when it sees multiple names associated with a single social security number. “Californians have been severely impacted by the recession, and so has the State’s Unemployment Insurance account, which is currently running a $10 billion deficit,” Chávez said. “Our state should ensure that funds paid for by taxpayers and employers are spent wisely and not subject to fraud and abuse.”

Assemblymember Chávez Introduces Bill to Reduce Fraud

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Rocky Chávez (R-Oceanside) introduced Assembly Bill 1631. The measure will require the Employment Development Department (EDD) to investigate cases in which a single social security number is associated with multiple names. In cases where the number is being used by multiple names, EDD will send the information to the Department of Justice for further investigation. In October 2013, the State Auditor’s Office discovered more than 1,400 instances where a single Social Security number

Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) applauded President Obama’s signing of an Executive Order that will improve the export/import processes for America’s small businesses by requiring completion of the International Trade Data System (ITDS) by December 2016. Once completed, the ITDS will reduce approval and processing times for U.S. small businesses seeking to import and export goods from days to minutes. Currently, California business must submit paper forms to a multitude of government agencies and wait days for processing

Congresswoman Julia Brownley and approval before moving goods across the border or through our ports. Once ITDS is fully implemented, it will reduce the

time and expense for businesses and will help facilitate the moving of 50 million containers and $3.8 trillion worth of goods that cross American borders each year. “I applaud this pro-small business export/import initiative, which will allow small businesses in Ventura County to more easily export American-made products to foreign markets,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “Not only will the ITDS help small businesses cut through burdensome bureaucratic red tape, it will help create jobs here at home that will continue to fuel our local economic recovery.” BROWNLEY, See page 12A

New Program Takes Big Step in the Fight Against Veteran Homelessness

A new residential treatment facility aimed at preventing homelessness among veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan opened in San Diego recently. While the city has a veteran population of 240,000, the Aspire Center is the only facility to exclusively serve veterans coming home from 21stcentury wars, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Runner Holds Small Business Telephone Townhall

SACRAMENTO – Board of Equalization Member George Runner hosted a telephone townhall for small business owners on Wednesday, February 19 at 2:00 p.m. The free event, co-hosted by the National Federation of Independent Business, provided specific information to small business owners on how best to avoid common tax errors. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, but everyday owners face challenges with California’s complicated tax laws,” said Runner. “As their elected taxpayer advocate, I want to make sure small business owners can be successful and avoid the pitfalls of California’s tax traps.” The telephone townhall informed small business owners about how to protect themselves from common tax traps such as missing records, successor liability, underreporting of tax, and invalid resale certificates. Information about these issues helps small business owners avoid making potentially costly mistakes. Runner held a similar telephone townhall earlier this month.

National News Police Video Shows Brothers Beaten, Allen West Back on the Campaign Trail Tased, Then Charged

By Christian Morrow After seeing a police video that was kept under wraps for months, Black Political Empowerment Project President Tim Stevens has asked Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala to drop assault charges filed against two brothers arrested in Homewood last July. The video shows police stopping and detaining 20-year-old Will El and his 18-year-old brother as they exited a confectionary in Homewood. “We then saw what appeared to be Officer (Frank) Welling slamming Will El against the wall. Anyone watching the video can clearly see Officer Welling putting on his black

Authorities in Florida have arrested a pregnant woman who they say led them to the body of her 2-year-old child in a shallow grave. It's the woman’s second child that has died in her care, police said. Rachel Fryer, 32, has not been charged in connection with her child's death, but she has been charged with aggravated child neglect. Fryer is being held in lieu of a nearly $1 million bond at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, according to Sanford Police Department spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly.

After failing to resuscitate the child, she said she put her body in the leopard-print suitcase and took it to the location in Crescent City (where it was ultimately found) and buried the girl, police said. Gordon's twin brother, 2-month-old Tavont'ae Gordon, died in 2011. In that case, Fryer claimed she rolled on top of the child while they were sleeping together and accidentally suffocated him. The medical examiner ruled the cause of death as mechanical asphyxiation -a "co-sleeping" fatality. According to The New GRAVE, See page 12A

Pregnant Mom Allegedly Leads Police Campbell Faces Ten Years to 2-Year-Old Daughter's Grave

By Zenobia Jeffries DETROIT — Excessive is how some describe the charges against Cass Technical High School studentathlete Jayru Campbell. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced at a press conference Feb. 11 the 17-year-old football player will be charged as an adult. Campbell, a junior quarterback, who led his team to back-to-back state championships as a freshman and sophomore in 2011 and 2012, faces a felony charge of assault to do great bodily harm, which carries a maximum 10-year sentence and a misdemeanor of aggravated assault, a one-year prison sentence, for allegedly body slamming a security guard on school premises.

Jayru Campbell (DPS Photo) “Any defendant would have been charged accordingly,” Worthy said. “Being a talented football player does not change these facts.” A mobile video, titled “Jayru Campbell bodyslam of Cass Tech security guard,” went viral Jan. 22, showing a student at Cass

An ‘Open Secret’:

Tech body-slamming a security guard. According to Worthy and earlier news reports of the incident, when asked by the 23-year-old guard to remove his hood inside the building, Campbell refused. In a statement following her announcement, Worthy said Campbell allegedly became “profane, picked the officer up and slammed him on the floor.” A second video and Campbell’s teammate Jamaal Brown tell a different tale. Brown told Fox2 news following the incident that Campbell was protecting himself from the guard. “When somebody puts their hands on you, you got a right to defend yourself,” Brown said.

Catholic Sexual Abuse in the Black Community

By Ashahed M. Muhammad (Part II of II) Special to the NNPA from The Final Call The two parishes consisted of majority Black congregations and all three are on the city’s South Side. He was also accused of embezzling funds, money victims say was used to coerce and control them. In October 1991, a memo in his file noted the latest sexual abuse “accusations against him are well-founded and that someone is pushing for boys to come forward.” Yet a January 1992 letter from the Sex Crimes Division chief of the Cook County attorney’s office announced the unit had ended its investigation, and there would be no charges. After leaving that church, Fr. Stewart served at Mercy Rehab Center. An April 1992 memo suggested that he not be alone with teenagers who worked at the center without another adult present. A June 1992 memo added, “Stewart will have to get therapy and be under monitoring for a long time.” “The most disturbing thing about this is that the Chicago Archdiocese fought tooth and nail and called me a liar,” said Mr. Nolan. “I’m deeply disturbed by it because they made me out to be a liar

for 30 years! It’s disturbing because a lot of my friends and brothers were abused and have continued to suffer because of this abuse.” In a Jan. 21 statement, the Archdiocese of Chicago said their awareness and understanding of the problem of sexual abuse within the church represents a new reality and abuse of any child is a sin. They asked victims of priest sexual abuse to continue to come forward. “Today no priest with even one substantiated allegation of sexual abuse of a minor serves in ministry in the Archdiocese of Chicago,” the statement continued. “The Archdiocese acknowledges that its leaders made some decisions decades ago that are now difficult to justify.” Those decisions have also cost the Catholic Church millions of dollars in America and abroad in civil suits won by abuse victims. Allegations of racial discrimination In November 2009, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago delivered a report to The Final Call complied by the law firm Pugh, Jones, Johnson and Quant dealing with charges of racial discrimination in the abuse settlement process. Many Black victims of priest sexual abuse believe their cases were

not treated with the importance of cases brought by wealthier White congregants. According to the report, there was no evidence of racial discrimination during the review or settlement process, however, the charge persists. Attorney Phillip Aaron, who for over a decade has represented Black victims of sexual abuse by priests, said no one reached out to his office to speak with any of his clients for that 2009 report. How could the church conclude there was no discrimination without talking to those who made the accusations? he asked. Rather than trying to be fair and just, the archdiocese went out of its way to avoid talking or communicating with any of my clients, said Atty. Aaron. “There’s been no contact with me about the Black clients—not even a whisper,” he added. To critics, it is disingenuous to hear Cardinal George say he was unaware of sexual abuse claims. Reports alleging sexual abuse have been sent to The Vatican since the 1950s. Although he was not the leader of the Catholic Archdiocese when many of these abuses occurred, the problem of Catholic priest sexual abuse is well-known. The Survivors Network

of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) holds regular protests and wants current and former Chicago Catholic church staff and members to help protect children by identifying pedophile priests, making sure their histories are known. In some cases, offending priests— though removed from public clerical duties—are living among unsuspecting neighbors, they said. Some of these clerics would be behind bars, SNAP said, if not for three factors. First, in many cases, Catholic officials shielded them from law enforcement for years. Second, church officials have long lobbied against reforming what SNAP called “archaic and predator-friendly secular child safety laws.” And third, when credible abuse allegations surface, church officials are slow to conduct effective outreach to identify other victims or witnesses, said the advocacy group. “SNAP fears that many who were abused by Stewart are still suffering in silence, shame and selfblame, in part because of the severity of his crimes. Stewart also worked primarily in African-American communities where, more families tend to struggle with economic need and tend to distrust authorities, SECRET, See page 12A

Most Americans not Prepared for Retirement

By Jazelle Hunt WASHINGTON (NNPA) – Seventy-five million working Americans do not have a retirement plan, and half of all Americans have less than $10,000 in savings, according to a report by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension (HELP) Committee, It’s even worse for African Americans and other people of color. According to a December report from the National Institute on Retirement Security, the typical retirement account-owning household of color has a balance of $23,000, which is less than half the $50,500 median balance of White households with retirement accounts. By the HELP Committee’s estimates, the retirement income deficit is between $6.6 and $14 trillion. Some in Washington seems to have taken notice. In the latest State of the Union address, President

Renters Day of Action held in Sacramento

Tenants converged on the Capitol Tuesday, February 18 for the largest renter mobilization in Sacramento in decades. Frustrated with surging rents and evictions, California renters are demanding more affordable homes, an end to Ellis Act evictions by speculators, and restoration of the renters’ rebate. The event was being organized by Tenants Together, California’s statewide organization for renters’ rights. Hundreds of renters took to the Capitol for the Renters’ Day of Action. The day started with a march that began at 10:00 a.m. at 11th & L Streets in Sacramento. A rally followed at 11:00 a.m. on the North Steps of the Capitol Building.

Foreign Money Transfers Just Got Safer If you're among the millions of U.S. residents who each year send tens of billions of dollars to family, friends or foreign businesses overseas, here's good news: The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently instituted new rules governing international electronic money transfers to better protect consumers against hidden fees and improve dispute resolution policies. CFPB was given oversight over international money transfers as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. Up until then, federal consumer protection rules did not apply to most "remittance transfers," whose exchange rates, processing fees and taxes often vary widely and can be hard to decipher. Here's an overview of

the new remittance transfer rules: In general, most foreign money transfers for more than $15 sent by money transmitters (like Western Union and MoneyGram), banks, credit unions and other financial services companies that consistently send more than 100 international money transfers annually are covered. These institutions now must fully disclose their fees, taxes and foreign currency exchange rates so consumers will have a clearer picture of the true cost of transactions and be able to more easily comparison shop. Also, once a transaction concludes, the company now must provide a receipt that repeats this same information, as well as shows the date when the money will arrive and directions for reporting any problems with

the transfer. The new regulations include several additional protections: • Consumers are allowed 30 minutes (and sometimes longer) to cancel a transfer after they've paid – in which case, they're entitled to a full refund. (However, if the recipient has already picked up the funds or had them deposited into their account before 30 minutes have passed, the refund guarantee is voided.) • If the wire was scheduled in advance, you can cancel it up to three business days before the transmission and receive a full refund.

Families Step in as Lenders to Help Kids Buy a Home

Employment troubles, large student loan debt, and tight underwriting standards have been major hurdles holding back potential first-time home buyers in their 20s and 30s, the Los Angeles Times reports. Studies have shown a strong desire among 20and 30-somethings to buy a home, but their finances are holding them back from making such a move. As such, more relatives are stepping in to provide assistance with downpayment and closing costs. Twentyseven percent of first-time buyers received a money gift from relatives last year. In some cases, instead of just handing over the money, some family members also are serving as “mini-lenders” themselves to help their adult children purchase a home, The Los Angeles Times reports. The family members may provide a second mortgage or first mortgage that are designed to deal with the young relative’s financial hurdles too, like paying off student loans to reduce debt-to-income ratios (which has been a hurdle for many in qualifying for a conventional loan). What’s more, the loans can provide annual returns to family members that have been known to perform better than money-market funds or bank deposits.

CAMARILLO, CA — Economic Development Collaborative-Ventura County recently entered into an agreement with City National Bank for a $250,000 contribution to EDC-VC’s flagship Revolving Loan Fund. The funding brings EDC-VC’s loan portfolio to approximately $4.4 million, and will be used for business lending and access to capital services for small- to medium-size businesses in Ventura County that may not qualify for commercial credit. “We are longtime partners with EDC-VC and strongly support the organization’s mission to stimulate and foster business growth in Ventura County. As City National Bank was founded in 1954 by entrepreneurs to serve entrepreneurs, we share the same goals and want to further economic expansion,” said Greg Glover, senior vice president and regional manager for City National Bank. “Our invest-

Bruce Stenslie, EDC-VC president and CEO ment in EDC-VC’s loan program enables us to reach our goals and give small businesses a boost so that they can prosper.” City National Bank has been on EDC-VC’s board of directors since 2009 and represented by Sim TangParadis, vice president and branch manager of the Oxnard and Camarillo offices. Tang-Paradis recently was installed as EDC-VC’s

2014 board chair. The funding is part of City National Bank’s mission to assist low- and middle-income communities and to invest in under-capitalized small businesses, as suggested by the federal Community Reinvestment Act. It is expected that the funding will help create and retain local jobs. “EDC-VC has operated revolving loan programs continuously and successfully since 1997,” said Bruce Stenslie, EDCVC’s president and CEO. “This infusion of funds will go a long way in meeting our organizational priorities of securing additional loan capital to support business growth and create more jobs.” With the Revolving Loan Fund, EDC-VC has helped companies create more than one job per $15,000 loaned, which exceeds its goal of one job per $25,000.

Watch Out for These Six Common Tax Myths

(NewsUSA) - We can all agree that filing taxes can be confusing. Asking questions or web searching for answers only leads to more confusion and misconceptions because when it comes to taxes, one standard answer does not always fit all. The National Association of Enrolled Agents -- a group of federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxes -- sheds some light on six common tax misconceptions. Myth: I had a really big loss in the stock market this year, so I won't owe any income taxes. Fact: Deduction of capital losses against ordinary income is limited to $3,000 per year. Also, whether you reinvest or receive dividends, they are technically still income and are taxed as such. Myth: I'm filing an extension this year, so I don't need to pay anything yet. Fact: Tax extensions only extend the time you have left to file, not the time you have to pay any

Be mindful of these common tax misconceptions. taxes owed. If you owe money and file an extension, you have until April 15 to pay, regardless of the extended deadline date. Otherwise, interest and penalties begin to stack up. Myth: Income earned in a foreign country is not taxable. Fact: The operative word is "income," which means it's taxable. The IRS requires taxpayers to report all earned income, even if it's earned abroad. Myth: They paid me in cash, so I don't have to report it. Fact: If it's income, you must report it. You always

report income, regardless of whether it's cash, tips, bonuses or dividends. Myth: I'm too young to have to pay taxes. Fact: Even dependents working part-time while in high school must file a tax return if they earned more than $6,100 in 2013 or if they want to receive their refund. Myth: Tax preparers only fill out forms that you can do yourself. Fact: Paid preparers know the intricate (and constantly changing) tax laws, regulations and codes, and how they can be applied for your benefit and save you money. Enrolled agents, America's tax experts, receive annual continuing education so they are knowledgeable of tax laws and how they can apply to you. Enrolled agents not only specialize in tax preparation and tax planning, they can also represent you before the IRS.

Can Stress Really Make Us Sick?

By Dr. Melissa E. Clarke What is health? A check-up with your doctor often focuses on making sure we are not sick – checking our blood pressures, mammograms, pap smears and colonoscopies. These are all excellent things we must keep on top of, but do not always necessarily focus on “health”. You can have all good check-up results but still not be healthy. That is because health, or wholeness, is really not just a physical concern; it starts with something only we can do for ourselves – focusing on well-being, both mentally and emotionally, which in turn leads to promoting a healthy body. “Feeling stressed” however, makes the immune system not healthy. Feeling stressed sets off a its own set of hormones and messenger chemicals that gets the body ready for the “fight or flight” – the same system that goes into action when the body is in danger. Your blood pressure goes up, the heart pumps faster, the intestines slow down, and the immune system shuts off – just to name a few. This system works great when there is real physi-

cal danger – you want to be using all your energy to get away or defend yourself. But it does not work well when it is always “on” due to feeling stressed – from bills, traffic, arguing with family, the boss at work, deadlines. You know the drill. This constant state of being stressed often leads to the common ailments we experience. Here are just 5 common ways this happens: 1. Headaches With stress, certain hormones set off a series events in your brain that stimulates your nerves and causes your blood vessels to swell. In many people this is felt as tension headaches and migraines. 2. Stomach Upset/ Reflux/

Irritable Bowel Disease Chronic stress, and its sister emotion anxiety, lead the body to make more stomach acid, which in turn leads to heartburn. The stomach also can take longer to empty food, which causes gas and bloating, and cause the intestines to contract more, leading to cramping and diarrhea. 3. Colds and Flus Stress suppresses the immune system, making you susceptible to catching airborne illnesses. In a study at Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, researchers surveyed volunteers about what was going on in their lives, and then infected them with a cold virus. The men and women coping with stresses ranging from a bad marriage to unemployment were twice as likely to get sick as those with fewer problems. 4. Weight Gain Under stress, the hormones adrenaline and cortisol are released. With chronic exposure, these stimulate hunger since your body assumes you will need energy to defend yourself. We often respond to this hunger by eating the items which will provide STRESS, See page 12A

diabetes and diabetes), or if you are on diabetes medications • Constant hunger • Fatigue after meals • Chronic pain A skilled physician can make this diagnosis with a special blood test and a physical examination. If left unchecked, this condition can have some very adverse effects to one’s health, such as: early aging, unexplained weight gain, vision problems/ blindness, kidney damage, heart disease, skin lesions, peripheral neuropathy and death. In women, this can lead to androgen dominance which is an increase in male character-

istics leading to infertility (PCOS), irregular periods, unexplained weight gain, fluid retention, fatigue, mood swings, acne beyond puberty, darkened patches of skin on the neck and arm pits, hair loss and unwanted hair growth on the body and face. Although these are unwanted characteristics, there are more serious underlying problems such as an increased risk of some cancers and heart disease. Something you can try at home to assess your risk is checking your waist to hip ratio (abdominal obesity). First measure your waist (don’t hold your breath in!) and then the widest part of your hips. Now divide the waist measurement by your hip measurement. A ratio larger than 0.8 for women (or 1.0 for men) indicates abdominal obesity and a higher risk for developing metabolic syndrome. If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms, it is important that you get this checked out by a skilled practitioner. Even if your WEIGHT, See page 12A

The Hidden Secret to Weight Loss

There is a hormone imbalance that 44% of the adult population over the age of 50 have and it is called Syndrome X or metabolic syndrome. It is more common in women than men and is seen in most populations around the world. The exact cause is unknown, but the general consensus is that it is a result of the Standard American Diet (SAD) combined with a sedentary lifestyle. The SAD diet is low in essential fatty acids, fiber and high in saturated fats and sugar which promotes many glucose disorders or insulin resistance. Symptoms include, but are not limited to: • Fatigue • Sugar cravings • Inability to lose weight (especially abdominal obesity) • High cholesterol, or if you are on cholesterol mediations • High blood pressure (hypertension), or if you are on blood pressure medications • High blood sugar (pre-

Healthy Aging:

What Can You Control?

By Stephanie Watson When it comes to aging, Bebe Shaw didn't hit the genetic lottery. Her mother died from congestive heart failure, her father of a heart condition. The younger of her two brothers had a heart attack at age 52, and her younger sister is on the verge of congestive heart failure. Shaw, 69, has high cholesterol -- a serious risk factor for heart disease. With such a checkered health history, she's not taking any chances. She eats well, takes a statin drug to control her cholesterol, exercises on regularly and visits her doctor regularly for checkups and screenings. Aging: Nature or Nurture? Looking at your relatives’ medical histories is like peering into a crystal ball. You get a glimpse at your future but not the whole picture. You can’t change the genes you inherited, but you can avoid habits that contributed to your

family’s health problems. Take preventive action now to help make sure you’re healthy into your 60s, 70s, 80s, and beyond. “You must remain active and engaged. By that, I mean physically and mentally active and socially engaged,” says James Pacala, MD, who is also president of the American Geriatrics Society. He ticks off the necessities: aerobic and resistance exercises, a balanced diet that’s low in saturated fat and high in fruits and vegetables, and brain games and social outings to keep you sharp. You also want to try to avoid diseases. “Get your immunizations, your cancer screening tests, your cardiac and osteoporosis risk factors assessed before you have those problems,” Pacala says. Staying Forever Young We’ve all seen 70- and 80-year-olds who look and act decades younger.

How do they do it? Pacala shares a few secrets. Refuse to take it slow. “There’s a sort of societal expectation that you’re supposed to slow down as you get old, and I think you should fight against that,” Pacala says. Take a daily walk. Even if your pace is gentle and the distance is short, the time spent on your feet will help keep your bones strong. Read the newspaper with your morning bowl of oatmeal. Keeping your mind engaged could ward off the brain changes that lead to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, while the whole grains in your bowl help prevent heart disease. Downsize your portions. Overeating leads to obesity and diabetes, which can shorten your lifespan. An overstuffed plate has also been linked to memory loss in people 70 and older.

Extending the reach With Black community awareness of Obamacare benefits falling short of expectations, California advocates and consumers urge renewed effort and focus. By McKenzie Jackson, California Black Media Last May, Covered California, the state’s health insurance marketplace, announced the awarding of $37 million in grants that would flow to a total of nearly 300 organizations — all working to conduct outreach and develop tailored education plans about affordable health care coverage available through the state exchange. At the time, the organization’s executive director, Peter V. Lee, said the initiative would “build on our partnerships with organizations that have trusted relationships in diverse communities throughout the state.” Targeting a total of 9 million Californians, 32 grants were said to be focused on African-American outreach, compared to 37 targeting Latinos. Twenty-seven grants were focused on Caucasian outreach and education, with 20 aimed at the Asian-Pacific Islander community. According to a statement issued by Covered California, the intent was as clear as it was noble: to foster successful outreach “programs in communities where likely enrollees live, work, pray, shop, and play, with a goal … to increase awareness about the new benefits, to educate targeted audiences about the subsidy programs avail-

able to them and to motivate consumers and small businesses to be part of obtaining health insurance.” These efforts are widely perceived to have been in good faith. But with so few African-Americans enrolled in Obamacare benefits through the state exchange questions linger about the effectiveness of the outreach. As of last month, only about 11,000 blacks were on the Covered California rolls — representing about 3.1 percent of enrollees, despite numbering seven percent of the state’s total population.. “We definitely need to increase the outreach to African-Americans,” said Karen D. Lincoln, a professor of social work at the University of Southern California and founder of the organization Advocates for African-American Elders. “I think the fact that the primary method of enrollment is via the Internet, there is a large segment of our population who cannot enroll. Now, among the general population of African-Americans, there is certainly more use of social media — but access can be a problem, particularly when you are in a multigenerational household and there are many people, who are maybe using one computer. Access can be a bit of a challenge.” “Yet,” says Lincoln, “the issue is not entirely generational. The other part that I think is important for the general population of African-Americans, we do need more outreach,” she said. “As advocates, we

have been passing out fact sheets about how to enroll, the importance of enrolling, the deadlines, the penalties for not enrolling … but I don’t think the message is clear. I don’t think the message is widespread enough among us, and I think we do need to do a little bit more educating on the importance of it.” A growing number of health care advocates believe additional education and outreach should be focused on raising black community awareness about the opportunities available through Medi-Cal. Too often, it is misunderstood to be a program only available for mothers and their children, but as of January 1, 2014, it has expanded to cover anyone whose resources are so limited that they cannot afford any other health care plan. Advocates are now stepping in to help boost the effectiveness of the outreach.

What Every Black Woman Needs to Know About Her Heart

By Dr. Richard Allen Williams Almost 400,000 women die of heart disease in the United States each year, and a large percentage of them are black females. In fact, diseases of the heart and circulation, which include heart attacks, stroke, heart failure, kidney disease, hypertension, and diabetes, are responsible for killing more black women than anything else in our society. That includes cancer, although women tend to be more afraid of developing cancer than of getting heart trouble. African American women are especially affected by heart disease in a negative manner. They have a higher mortality or death rate than white women and black men under the age of 55 years. The mortality rate from coronary heart disease is 69% higher than for white women. In addition, the first heart attack occurs at an earlier age in black women and is more likely to be fatal than is the case in white women. And premenopausal women who have hypertension, which is more common in black women, have 10 times the heart attack risk of those

Tech News

Is Your Netflix Slow? This May Be Why

Verizon and Comcast customers aren't hallucinating -- Netflix really has gotten slower for them. The streaming video service released its monthly ranking of Internet service providers from fastest to slowest in terms of average performance of Netflix streams. Comcast again ranked among the slowest on the list, while Verizon FIOS dropped one spot, to seventh of 17, according to a Netflix analysis of data culled from its millions of subscribers. The news hardly comes as a surprise to many customers of Comcast and Verizon, who've gone to message boards and blogs to voice their complaints about Netflix speed in recent months. Some question whether slower Netflix performance is related to last month's federal court ruling that struck down the government's ban on Internet traffic throttling. One person, a satisfied Verizon customer for a few years, wrote in January that Netflix had become "pretty much unusable" over the previous month. "During a movie or show, it will stop for buffering every minute or two and hang for about 30 seconds, then resume, then repeat." A frustrated Comcast customer in Spokane, Wash., wrote on a thread in November about issues

with Netflix "over the last couple of weeks." "Daytime is fine but the evenings suck bad," the person wrote, adding that Comcast has "replaced 2 modems and changed all my connections." "This has not been a problem for the last 5 years in this house, just the last 2 weeks." As Ars Technica's Jon Brodkin noted, Netflix speeds on both Verizon FiOS and Comcast, which have 6.1 million and 20.7 million respective subscribers, have been slowing for the past few months. Netflix speed on Verizon's network has become a controversial topic after a blog post accused Verizon of "throttling," or slowing down, content hosted by Amazon's cloud computing service, including Netflix. The charge gained significance because it comes

By Sara Boboltz You know the one. Little Tikes' Cozy Coupe -- the red plastic, yellow-roofed model that's been awkwardly piloted across suburban sidewalks by toddlers everywhere

since 1979 -- is now street legal. And it might help raise money for charity. John Bitmead, a mechanic in Oxfordshire, England, spent about $6,600 and 1,000 hours over the course of five months con-

after last month's federal appeals court ruling that struck down Federal Communication Commission rules known as net neutrality. Now, theoretically, an ISP like Verizon or Comcast could charge a company like YouTube, Netflix or Facebook to deliver content faster to subscribers. Verizon denied the report and said in a statement to HuffPost that it "treat[s] all traffic equally, and that has not changed." Netflix, for its part, reportedly said Verizon is not slowing its traffic, and the streaming video company isn't concerned with the possibility that ISPs may throttle its service, according to an article on Re/Code. Still, when it comes to streaming Netflix, the average performance of Comcast and Verizon's FiOS networks has been declining.

Not a Toy Anymore

verting a Daewoo Matiz into an adult version of the classic toy. His two-seat car runs on unleaded gasoline and can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 17 seconds. Not bad when the original runs on children's foot power. The middle section of the Matiz was sliced out to maintain the correct proportions, and of course the windows all had to be removed. No detail was overlooked -- the car even has two giant drink holders like its prototype and its ignition is a big button. Bitmead, whose brother Geoff and friend Nigel Douglas helped with the project, manages a custom auto shop where the other two work. He explained how the three got the idea for the project when they decided the Cozy Coupe was probably the mostdriven type of car, and "it snowballed from there." Bitmead would like to tour the nation in his attention-grabbing creation to raise money for London’s Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, he told The Oxford Mail. Although for public safety's sake he's a bit wary of taking it out on the highway again due to the surprise factor for other motorists. "People can't believe their eyes when we come driving down the street in this red and yellow toy car," he said.

Horrifying Gmail App Informs People When You Open Their Email

By Alexis Kleinman Bye bye, everyone. It's time to quit the Internet. There's a Google Chrome extension called Streak that, when installed, lets you see when someone has read an email you sent. You know what this means? It means other people can use Streak and see that you have opened their email without responding. We're all doomed. An email recipient doesn't have to have the plugin installed in order for the sender to be notified that it was opened. The recipient won't get any notification that you're tracking your emails, either. It's all very secretive. The plugin is free and easy to install. Once you download it and give it access to your Gmail account, it will start automatically start tracking your outgoing messages. If you send an email

to multiple people, Streak will tell you how many people have viewed it, but won't necessarily reveal their identities. Streak does a lot of other useful stuff, too. It's built as a tool for customer relationship management, and it can do things like schedule emails in advance. Streak has been around since 2012, but the read receipt feature was added in November. Do read receipts sound familiar? They should,

since they are a big part of BlackBerry's messaging service, BBM, and have been making people crazy for years. You can also enable read receipts in iMessage, though Apple makes the feature optional. Another plugin, Boomerang, also offers users read receipts, but if you want to track an email, the recipient will be notified that it's being tracked with a line inserted at the end of the email.

By Barbara Ortutay NEW YORK — A group of consumer and children's advocates are renewing their legal battle with Facebook over teenagers' privacy on the world's largest online social network. At issue is how the company uses the vast trove of information that its 1.23 billion users share on the site. Facebook faced a class action lawsuit in 2011 over its use of people's images in advertisements known as "sponsored stories." This allowed companies to pay to retransmit users' activities to their friends' pages. If someone clicked the "like" button for a brand, the click could show up as a "sponsored story" on friends' pages. To settle the lawsuit, Facebook agreed to pay $20 million to users and in charitable contributions and make changes to its privacy policies. The settlement was approved by a federal court last August, though

appeals are pending. On Thursday, the nonprofit Public Citizen, along with six parents of teenagers, filed a legal brief in a federal appeals court in California saying the settlement should be rejected. Public Citizen and supporting groups, such as the Center for Digital Democracy, argue that the settlement should have not been approved because using minors' images in ads without parental consent violates the law in seven states. "Class-action settle-

ments are supposed to compensate people for wrongdoing and deter the defendant from engaging in the bad behavior in future. This settlement does neither," said Scott Michelman, the Public Citizen attorney handling the case, in a statement. Jodi Seth, a spokeswoman for Facebook, said that the settlement "goes beyond what any other company has done to provide consumers visibility into and control over their information in advertising."

By Tyler McCarthy Everyone wants to feel loved. A new web app aims to help you share the love (and receive some in return) by automatically liking every post on your Instagram. But Instagram doesn't seem happy about this. Developer Rameet Chawla created the webonly Lovematically app to automate the process of satiating friends' desires for digital affection. On Valentines Day, he opened the service up to the first 5,000 users who wished to sign up. Instagram was quick to begin blocking the app. Ryan Matzner, the director of Chawla's development company, had this to say about Instagram's attempts to shut down Lovematically: The service is running for the vast majority of users who've already signed up. I can't get into specifics, but we architected

the tool to be robust and we don't believe it can be shutdown en mass, at least not without significant effort on Instagram's end. Instagram appears to have made a dent in shutting us down, but they still have a long way to go. And there are numerous countermeasures we are employing. It's a bit cat-and-mouse right now. On Lovematically's

website, Chawla explains his motivation for creating the app. He also describes the satisfaction of getting likes: “It’s our generation’s crack cocaine. People are addicted. We experience withdrawals. We are so driven by this drug, getting just one hit elicits truly peculiar reactions. ... They’ve inconspicuously emerged as the first digital drug to dominate our culture.”

Commentary Black History Month:

U.S. Spending Extraordinary Amounts on ‘Guard Labor’

Needed Now More Than Ever

Marc H. Morial

Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. America’s gun culture costs lives and feeds our fears. Consider the most recent injustice in Florida, the verdict in the Michael Dunn case, and the most recent news about America’s “guard labor.” In Jacksonville, Fla., Michael Dunn, a 47-yearold White man, was aggravated by the loud rap music coming from an SUV filled with four Black teenagers in a convenience store parking lot. An exchange of insults ensued. Dunn, who was armed and clearly dangerous, claimed that he was threatened by Jordan Davis, a 17-yearold high school senior, and later claimed he saw the barrel of a shotgun coming from the SUV. There was no shotgun; no other witness saw anything that might resemble a shotgun. Dunn opened his door and fired 10 shots into the SUV as it drove away, killing Jordan Davis. Dunn then drove away without calling the cops, and without ever mentioning that the boys had a shotgun. Under Florida’s inane “Stand Your Ground” law, however, Dunn had the right to use lethal force to defend himself if he “reasonably” thought his life was threatened. Dunn’s lawyer said, “I don’t have to prove the threat, just

that Mike Dunn believed it.” The Jacksonville jury found Dunn guilty of three counts of “attempted murder” in his strafing of the car, but they couldn’t come to a decision on his murder of Jordan Davis. In Florida, it is increasingly dangerous to be young, Black and male. In the New York Times on Monday, Samuel Bowles and Arjun Jayadev report in “One Nation Under Guard” that the U.S. now employs more private security guards than high school teachers. Tallying up all of what they call “guard labor,” including police officers, prison guards, soldiers, etc., they come to a figure of 5.2 million, more than all teachers at all levels. The “guard labor” share of the labor force in America has risen dramatically since the 1970s, as inequality has reached new extremes. Bowles and Jayadev find that guard labor and inequality are connected. We have four times as much guard labor as Sweden, a country of equal living standards but far less inequality. States with extreme inequality like New York and Louisiana have far more of their work force employed in guard labor than states with less inequality like Idaho and

New Hampshire. Bowles and Jayadev discount race as a factor, but obviously Sweden, New Hampshire and Idaho are also far less diverse than the U.S., New York and Louisiana. Bowles and Jayadev note that social spending seems to decline as guard labor grows. The U.S. is spending more of its money on guards and less on opportunity. One haunting feature of South Africa under apartheid was the extent to which the homes of the affluent whites were protected by walls, barbed wire and private guards. Fear of crime and of majority revolt pervaded the country. Our gun and guard culture is, at root, also about fear. We pride ourselves on being the home of the brave and land of the free. But increasingly we are the home of the fearful, and land of the armed. Michael Dunn’s murderous rage was grounded in fear. Our soaring guard labor reflects rising fear. As Jacksonville demonstrated once more, guns can make those fears deadly. GUARD, See page 12A

Clarence Thomas’ Self-Inflicted Amnesia day more race and difference-conscious than I was in the 1960s when I went to school. To my knowledge, I was the first Black kid in Savannah, Georgia, to go to a White school. Rarely did the issue of race come up. Now, name a day it doesn’t come up. Differences in race, differences in sex, somebody doesn’t look at you right, somebody says something. Everybody is sensitive. If I had been as sensitive as that in the 1960s, I’d still be in Savannah. Every person in this room has endured a slight. Every person. Somebody has said something that has hurt their feelings or did something to them –left them out.” People didn’t talk about race much until the 1950s and early 1960s, and when they did, then, they did them with a whisper. When Emmett Till was killed in 1955, there were few African Americans who took White folks to account for this, except for the large African American organizations, such as the NAACP. Because of their very public stance on the issue, the organization was described as “subversive,” their members (and the members of other organizations) were labeled “outside agitators”.

“There is no more powerful force than a people steeped in their history. And there is no higher cause than honoring our struggle and ancestors by remembering.”– Lonnie Bunch, founding director, National Museum of African American History and Culture Ever since the 2009 election of Barack Obama as America’s first Black president and the 100th anniversary of the National Urban League in 2010, the perennial debate about the need for Black History Month has intensified. Some have questioned the need for a special month to recognize the many unknown and unsung achievements of African Americans. With Obama as president, the logic goes, we have now achieved Dr. King’s dream of a nonracial America where everyone is judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. I wish it were so. Last year, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and the passage of the Voting Rights Act. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the repeal of the poll tax. But unfortunately, the suppression of voting rights and other instances of racial discrimination remain. All one needs to

do is look at the glaring disparities between Blacks and Whites in income, employment, incarceration rates, educational achievement and health status to see that race still matters in America. Income inequality and equal opportunity are still part of the unfinished business of American democracy. In 1926, after centuries of Blacks being excluded, not only from the mainstream of American life, but also from the textbooks in our schools, African American historian Carter G. Woodson did a service to all Americans when he created Negro History Week, which was expanded to Black History Month in 1976. Woodson’s vision was one of unity and inclusion. He said, “What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but the history of the world void of national bias, race, hate and religious prejudice.” That is a goal that America is still struggling to achieve. In fact, legislatures in a number of states, including New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, have passed laws mandating or encouraging teachers to broaden their history courses to include more ethnic, racial and gender diversity. That is why we still recognize March as

Women’s History Month, May as Jewish American History Month, September 15 to October 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month and February as Black History Month. These celebrations serve a dual purpose: first to build self-esteem among historically oppressed people, and second to remind all Americans that in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, our diversity is our greatest strength. Black history is American history. While the story and achievements of African Americans are especially celebrated this month, the contributions we have made and the struggles we still face deserve recognition every day of the year. Next year, for the first time, Black History will enter the mainstream when the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture opens on the National Mall in Washington. The Museum describes itself as “a place of meaning, of memory, of reflection, of laughter, and of hope. It should be a beacon that reminds us of what we were; what challenges we HISTORY, See page 11B

U.S. Seeks to Destabilize Venezuela

Julianne Malveaux Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is at it again. Whenever he opens his mouth about race, he displays a surprising myopia for a 65-year-old African American man who was raised in the Deep South during a segregated era. During his confirmation hearing, Thomas excoriated his own family, speaking of his sister as someone (and I paraphrase) waiting around for her welfare check. He was equally contemptuous of other members of his family, even as they were loyal to him and attended some of his hearings. A notable point in his confirmation hearing was a moment when he said he experienced the pain of racism when his grandmother could not use a desegregated bathroom. I’d remind him now, as I did then in a column, that it wasn’t personal, and it wasn’t just his grandmother, it was everybody’s grandmother. That’s the collective and institutional knowledge than Thomas lacks. The old Clarence Thomas resurfaced when he went to Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Fla. to deliver a speech. According to news reports, he said: “My sadness is that we are probably to-

Before Till, there were thousands of incidents, few making headlines. For African Americans, acts that left African Americans lynched and killed, run off their property, and just plain disappear were not much discussed. It was understood that those harassed are those who “stood up to the White man.” For Whites, this fatal harassment of people of African descent, the outright theft of property, rape of women, and a litany of other oppressions, was nothing more than business as usual. White men could rape Black women, beat up or kill Black men, and do whatever they wanted without fearing reprisals. Some of these oppressions are only now being uncovered. Of course, people are talking about race. Furthermore, things like employment discrimination are not simple “slights” that result in hurt feelings. Instead, they are institutional attacks on a community’s economic well being. Differences in the well-documented ways THOMAS, See page 11B

Whether under Bush or Obama the U.S. appears determined to destabilize the Bolivarian government of Venezuela. The U.S. political establishment, including these two administrations, regularly provoke the Venezuelan government, make false allegations, and demonstrate their support for the opposition forces in Venezuela irrespective of the strategies and tactics which the opposition pursues. Enough! This must end. The current clashes in Venezuela between progovernment and anti-government forces should be an internal matter of the Venezuelan people. The U.S. political establishment, including but not limited to the Obama administration, insists on caricaturing the administration of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, portraying it as authoritarian. Yet this was a democratically-elected government in a bitterly divided country. The Obama administration should know a bit about bitterly divided countries and about those who insist on the illegitimacy of a democratically elected president. The Obama administration continues to fish

in troubled waters when it comes to Latin America. In 2009, while at first orally opposing the coup in Honduras, the Obama administration undermined all efforts to return the legitimate president to office. With regard to Venezuela, despite the late President Hugo Chavez’s interests in a better relationship between Venezuela and the U.S.A,, the Obama administration has seemed to be more concerned with projecting its aggressive face. Rhetorical provocations, as well as U.S. hostility toward several of Venezuela’s chief allies in the region, have led to Obama successfully seizing defeat from the jaws of victory in Latin America. This brings us to today. The opposition, once again, seems intent on provoking the Maduro government into an action that will make the opposition appear to be victims. The mainstream U.S. media and political establishment are cooperating in this effort. Despite the fact that the Maduro government has popular support, U.S. politicians are laying the public relations foundation for regime change. All those concerned about peace and justice should

simply not let this happen. The first step is to refuse to be silent. This means that we need to take concrete steps, including writing to the White House and making it clear that we oppose U.S. interference in Venezuela; sending “letters to the editor” to your local media outlets conveying the same point; and getting organizations to which you belong to pass resolutions that are sent to the White House expressing their displeasure with the manner in which this administration is carrying out its relationship with Venezuela. The bottom line is that silence and passivity in the face of U.S. provocations can simply not be options. Bill Fletcher, Jr. is a racial justice, labor and global justice writer and activist.

KING From page 1A “10 to 15” he steered to a towing company owned by the brother of the acting King City police chief, according to a criminal complaint. The acting chief, a former chief, other police employees and a towing company owner were arrested Tuesday on multiple charges, including a scheme to steal impounded cars belonging to mostly Latino immigrants, authorities said. Among the vehicles he allegedly kept: a 1970 Pontiac LeMans, a Ford Expedition and Ford Explorer. The 5:59 a.m. sweep Tuesday came after a six-month investigation that was led by the Monterey County district attorney’s office and spurred by “ongoing complaints of corruption and other criminal acts within the King City Police Department,” Dist. Atty. Dean Flippo said in a statement. Flippo told reporters at an afternoon news conference in Salinas that King City residents -- many of whom are poor and cannot speak English -- told him, “The police are taking our property. They are taking our cars. They take our money. And we can do nothing about that.” Authorities said that while investigating those allegations, they stumbled across other alleged crimes they also pursued. The investigation is ongoing, Flippo said. Those arrested in connection with the alleged vehicle scheme were: Acting Police Chief Bruce Miller; his brother Brian Miller, owner of Miller Tow; Sgt. Bobby Javier Carrillo; longtime Chief Dominic “Nick” Baldiviez, who retired last September; and Officer Mario Alonso Mottu Sr. The charges include bribery, embezzlement and conspiracy. According to the complaint, Carrillo sent 87% of 200 vehicles impounded between March 2010 and last November to Miller Tow, even though the city had towing arrangements with four companies, and received cars in return. Acting Chief Bruce Miller allegedly received a vehicle as a bribe from Carrillo in an influence-buying arrangement. Baldiviez and Mottu were charged with embezzlement by a public officer for an incident in which Baldiviez transferred ownership of a marked patrol car -- complete with Department of Motor Vehicle documents -to Mottu, said Chief Assistant Dist. Atty. Terry Spitz. Also arrested were Officer Jaime Andrade, who was charged with possession of an assault weapon and illegal storage of a firearm, and Sgt. Mark Allen Baker, charged with making criminal threats. Criminal complaints allege Andrade possessed a semiautomatic Colt AR-15 with the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and stored it in a manner where “a child was likely to gain access to it.” Baker is alleged to have threatened a man named Leon Rosalio Infante. Bruce Miller told a KSBWTV reporter after posting bail that he was “completely surprised” and “blown away” by his arrest. “The charges they are looking at is receiving or requesting a bribe, and I’ve never done that,” the acting police chief said. “I was aware of the investigations but I didn’t know that I would become a suspect.... My reputation is soiled. There’s no coming back from this, even if I’m found innocent.” The agricultural community of fewer than 13,000 residents along Highway 101 is more than 80% Latino. Antonio Rivas, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens’ Council of Salinas, said his organization was “very upset” about the allegations and will press the City Council to “take the matter very seriously and … hopefully restore the trust of the community.” Elected leaders pledged to do so....

ing of our kingly attributes and priesthood as being ordained to speak on behalf of God and “to bless.” Too many of us have neglected our royal duty to decree blessings over our marriages, families, businesses, ministries, and every other realm of our lives. The whole universe is waiting for us to take dominion, to speak out, and to give instruction. That’s what we were created to do! The Bible says, “the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19 esv). All of creation waits in anticipation for God’s called out and anointed ones to bring it back into alignment with the Creator’s original intent--declaring His glory to the nations. (Isaiah 25:3 and 66:19.) Every word you speak is pregnant with, creative power. God created everything that exists by speaking out what He envisioned. He dreamed about creating the cosmos, but it was not until His Word framed what He saw in His mind’s eye did the earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars appear. Imagination has no power until it is expressed--and the most powerful expression in the universe is the spoken word. God spoke, and from “nothingness” came everything that is. Only say what you want and what God says about you nothing more and nothing less. This week, speak yourself blessed! Speak yourself healed!

Fisher said she too is writing a formal request for Zappala to drop the charges. CAMPBELL From page 7A The videos show the guard did not have his back turned when Campbell grabbed him.

Campbell turned himself in to the Detroit Public Schools Police Department prior to being arraigned the morning of Feb. 12 before Magistrate Millicent Sherman who set bail at $5000 with a 10 percent surety. Sherman ordered Campbell not to have contact with the school. GRAVE From page 7A York Daily News, Fryer is four or five months pregnant and has three other children who are still alive. The Orlando Sentinel reported the three surviving brothers and sisters had been taken away from Fryer in 2011 and placed with a foster family. The children, who have since been taken away again, were reportedly returned in November. SECRET From page 7A especially law enforcement,” according to a recent statement on SNAP’s website. The scandals appear to be taking a toll. The Chicago church had paid $77 million for sexual abuse settlements as of 2008, according to the Catholic News Agency. At least six Chicago area Catholic schools

are closing by the end of this school year due to declining enrollment. The number of Blacks identifying themselves as Catholics in Chicago is shrinking. The Chicago Archdiocese serves just over 2.2 million Catholics and approximately 66,000 or 3 percent are Black. This is down from 90,000 self-identified Black Catholics just two years prior. According to the United States Conference on Catholic Bishops, there are 3 million Black Catholics in America. Reginald Montgomery is another victim of priest sexual abuse who was represented by Atty. Aaron. They spoke briefly after reports of the most recent release of files appeared in the news. His traumatic stories of abuse also began when he was 13. He was homeless after his mother kicked him out for misbehaving. Mr. Montgomery looked up to his priest as a father figure and was allowed to sleep upstairs in the rectory. Late one night, he was awakened by the priest rubbing on his body. Before he realized what was happening, it was too late. He was overpowered and raped. Days after the document release, the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago and a lawyer for an alleged sexual abuse victim announced a $3.2 million settlement. The lawsuit by the plaintiff, who hasn’t been identified, accused the archdiocese of failing to promptly remove Daniel McCormack after claims he abused children had emerged. Plaintiff attorneys say their client was abused as a boy between the eighth and 11th grades. “We are pleased to have reached this settlement because it marks one more step toward bringing justice to the victim and his family,” Attorney William F. Martin said in a statement. The archdiocese noted Jan. 30 that the settlement was reached with help from a mediator. “The Archdiocese continues to encourage the use of alternatives to litigation to resolve claims of sexual misconduct in a just, fair and compassionate manner,” it said. “The Archdiocese encourages anyone who has been sexually abused by a priest, deacon, religious or lay employee, to come forward.” Mr. McCormack pleaded guilty in 2007 to abusing five children. He was sentenced to five years in prison and removed from priesthood. He’s currently confined to a state mental health facility. Other civil claims against the Chicago church are still pending. Losses as a result of church failures to act are also mounting: The Roman Catholic Diocese of Helena, Montana filed for bankruptcy protection Jan. 31 as part of a proposed $15 million settlement for hundreds of victims who say clergy members sexually abused them over decades while the church covered it up. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Helena, Mont., includes the Cathedral of St. Helena. The diocese filed for bankruptcy protection but doesn’t expect to liquidate any of its assets. Diocese spokesman Dan Bartleson said the Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan comes after confidential mediation sessions with the plaintiffs’ attorneys and insurers, resulting in the deal to resolve the abuse claims. The settlement details are being worked out, but the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Montana would be responsible for approving and supervising the disbursement of $15 million to compensate the 362 victims identified in the two lawsuits. In addition, at least $2.5 million will be set aside for victims who come forward later, spokesman Bartleson said. (The Associated Press contributed to this report.) RETIREMENT From page 8A plans. Both systems use employers as a middleman; employers that do not already offer benefits will be required to offer the system to employees, and will link the employees to the system via automatic payroll deductions. In both systems, the employers neither access/manage their employees’ retirement funds, nor are they required to contribute to any accounts. Despite these similarities, the systems are fundamentally different. The USA Retirement Fund Act is the result of a two-year study of the retirement crisis by the Senate HELP Committee and its Chairman, Senator Harkin. Under this act, private entities (such as non-profits, trade organizations, financial institutions, etc.) could start their own

retirement fund accounts, with approval and regulation from the Department of Labor. Approved accounts would be designated USA Retirement Funds. The private entity would choose its own independent, qualified board trustees (who would also be federally investigated and approved) to manage the funds. MONEY From page 8A • Senders have 180 days to report any errors they later uncover. By law, the company must investigate such reports within 90 days. For certain errors (e.g., if the money never arrived), you can ask for a full refund or have the money resent. While the new regulations are certainly welcome, they don’t go far enough when it comes to helping customers compare the net costs of making money transfers at different vendors. You’ll still need to carefully weigh each company’s exchange rate (which fluctuates frequently) and fees (which vary depending on how much you’re sending, how quickly you want the money to arrive and the funding method) to determine which one provides the best value – the so-called “effective exchange rate.” One company may have a more favorable exchange rate than another but charge higher fees. Depending on how much money you’re trying to transfer and by what method, however, the balance could shift over which transaction is more costeffective. To calculate various effective exchange rates, add the amount you’re sending (in U.S. dollars) plus all fees; then divide that into the amount of foreign currency to be delivered. The company with the highest result provides the best value. If you don’t trust your math skills, Viamericas has a handy comparison tool that lets you plug in fees and exchange rates for up to three additional vendors and it will calculate their effective exchange rates (visit www.viamericas.com). Use the tool’s manual comparison option to allow for more choices. For more information on the new remittance transfer rule, visit www.cfpb.gov.

Ross, M.D., CEO and President of The Endowment. “We are excited to partner with DHCS to fund outreach and enrollment assistance at the local level. This is an important investment that will help hundreds of thousands of Californians enroll in Medi-Cal.” Considering the numbers, those efforts appear to be worthwhile. According to Covered California, as of 2013 there were 8.5 million Californians enrolled in Medi-Cal. Thanks to Obamacare, up to two million more residents of are expected to be eligible this year — with a significant percentage of those potential enrollees believed to be African-American. Thomas Duncan, CEO of Trusted Health Plan, a Washington D.C.-based managed healthcare organization, argues that African-Americans are poised to be among the chief benefactors of the healthcare law. In an article entitled “African-Americans Will Benefit Greatly From Obamacare,” published February 6 in the International Business Times, Duncan wrote that a disproportionate percentage of blacks will become newly eligible for health coverage. “Prior to the Affordable Care Act, our nation’s healthcare system was discriminatory to both lower- and middle-wage workers,” he wrote, adding that socioeconomic factors and of debilitating and fatal diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity. “But now, Obamacare will open the door to preventive, primary, and strategic specialty care for millions of AfricanAmericans and others.” With those factors in mind,

those who have been served by Covered California express hope that more African-Americans will decide to enroll themselves and their families. “Black people, we need that,” said Joseph Thomas, a 31-year-old Woodland Hills resident. He estimates that the Covered California plan he recently obtained online with his domestic partner would save their household about $1,200 per year. “[It’s important because] we don’t seem to go to the doctor as regularly as we should — but we always seem to have health issues and die earlier.” To find out where you or a loved one can enroll in person go to www.coveredca.com and click on find local help.

STRESS From page 9A the quickest energy – fats and carbs. This of course leads to weight gain. 5. Neck and Back Pain Stress triggers nervous system to reduce blood flow to the muscles, which makes them prone to spasms. In addition, our posture when stressed tends to suffer, since we tend to hunch over and tense the shoulder and neck muscles, making the muscle tension worse. WEIGHT From page 9A waist to hip ratio is within the normal range and you have some of the above symptoms, it is still important to get checked because it is not the only deciding factor. If you are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome this can be corrected relatively easily with a change in lifestyle. GUARD From page 11A We would be far better off investing in opportunity rather than fear, making the country less unequal and more confident in its diversity. Contrary to the NRA, spreading concealed weapons around makes our streets more, not less, dangerous. Contrary to real estate agents, gated communities and armed guards offer more provocation than protection. In the end, real security comes not from guards or guns, but from justice. Jesse L.

NUHO Offers Unique Film Festival Steve McQueen on the Moment He Saw Lupita Experience to the Masses

(NewsUSA) - From Sundance to Palm Springs to Cannes, film buffs ogle at these cinematic fetes but typically can only dream of parading among the who's who of Hollywood. Now, however, a new indie distribution company is making it easier -- and less expensive -- to attend a film festival by hosting it online. NUHO Online Film Festival is the brainchild of New Hollywood Entertainment CEO Keith Mitchell and Ivy League entrepreneur Chris Kanik, and was born out of what Mitchell describes as an "inherent problem with quality independent films making it into the movie theaters." "The festival business is a necessary spoke in the wheel of film distribution," says Kanik. "However when the festival benefits the hosts more than the filmmakers, that's wrong. We offer filmmakers a friendly site where everybody succeeds." What makes NUHO different from other film festivals is that independent filmmakers gain from profit sharing, have exposure to a worldwide audience, and contact with agents, distributors and other industry professionals -- all without having to

By Alanna Vagianos As if actress and allaround feminist superwoman Rashida Jones hadn't already turned us into hardcore tween fangirls, the "Parks And Recreation" star's most recent comments have us seriously swooning. The Harvard grad sat down with The Guardian's Hadley Freeman to discuss her final farewell to "Parks And Rec," funny women in Hollywood and the "full princess fantasy." After allegations of "slut-shaming" Hollywood actresses during an October 2013 Twitter debacle, Jones clarified and expanded on her perception of a "pornification" of pop culture in a column for Glamour magazine. The actress told The Guardian: "I'm just asking people

Rashida Jones to take a breath and talk about it. I also wanted to say there's more than one way to be a woman and be sexy -- like, you're a really great dancer, or you're really f**king smart." Jones also discussed her frustration with the value put on marriage as an achievement for women -and how she overcame the

narrative that women can't be happy without it: I had the full princess fantasy: the white horse, the whole being saved from my life, which is ridiculous. What do I want to be saved from? My life's great! But it's just this weird thing that's been hammered into my head culturally: that's the only way to succeed, that's the only thing that counts for a woman. I'm happy, but the fact that I'm not married and don't have kids – it's taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don't feel like I'm some sort of loser. While Jones has had to defend some of her positions, there's no question she is committed to women's equality -- if not superiority.

Nicki Minaj already blasted the song's lyrics. The rapper's use of the image in unison with the track caused even more of a stir. Minaj posted an apology to Instagram, along with a screengrab from her music video. In the mes-

sage, she wrote: What seems to be the issue now? Do you have a problem with me referring to the people Malcolm X was ready to pull his gun out on as Lookin Ass N****z? Well, I apologize. That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single. This is a conversation. Not a single. I am in the video shooting at Lookin Ass N****z and there happened to be an iconic photo of Malcolm X ready to do the same thing for what he believed in!!!! It is in no way to undermine his efforts and legacy. I apologize to the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was misconstrued. The image of Malcolm X has since been removed from Minaj's Instagram account and her website.

It Took Rashida Jones 'A Long Time' to 'Be OK With' This

Steve McQueen’s critically acclaimed drama, “12 Years A Slave” has not only received an endless amount of praise from industry insiders and theatergoers, it has also birthed a tremendous amount of recognition for one of the film’s stars, Lupita Nyong'o. Since appearing in McQueen’s masterpiece, the 30-year-old actress has graced the covers of various magazines, and spotted rubbing elbows with the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Anna Wintour. Earlier this week McQueen appeared alongside Nyong'o during an episode of “Piers Morgan Live” where he discussed how he was blown away by her pres-

ence prior to filming the Oscar-nominated flick. “I first saw Lupita on tape, and at first I thought it was a mirage, in a way," he recalled. "I was rubbing my eyes as I was seeing what I was seeing. I brought my daughter in, I brought my wife in and they confirmed to me that

I was looking at a great actress.” “And then I got on the phone to my agent and said that we need to see this woman immediately. And it was just one of those moments where you kind of just quiver and sort of tremble because you know this is something big.”

Vanessa Williams musical numbers that showcase dance, jazz, tap or singing backed by 17 musicians from Jazz at Lincoln Center. Williams, the former “Desperate Housewives” star, will be called on to sing four songs, including “Stormy Weather,” ‘’I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” and “I’ve Got

the World on a String.” She said she enjoyed the music of that era when she was in the TV movie “Stompin’ at the Savoy” in 1992. What can people expect? “It’ll be me,” she said flirtatiously. “It won’t be k.d. lang. It’ll be me. The people that know me know what I bring. I love the music and it’s our history. This is the music of African-Americans in New York.” The actress and singer has never recorded the four songs in the show and especially looks forward to the chance to make “Stormy Weather” her own. “Lena Horn is such an icon for me and her performance is emblazoned in my mind,” she said. “To be able to do my version is phenomenal.”

Vanessa Williams Heads Back to Broadway

By Mark Kennedy NEW YORK — Vanessa Williams wants to stay up after midnight. The actress, singer and former Miss America watched the matinee performance of “After Midnight” on Wednesday and then broke it to the cast backstage that she has signed up for a stint in the Broadway show celebrating Duke Ellington’s years at the Cotton Club nightclub. “It’s an honor to jump in. It’s a well-oiled machine, up and running and I think it’ll be a perfect fit,” Williams said afterward. She signed on before ever seeing the show and says it was an “easy, easy” decision to jump in. Williams, who next month turns 51, will start as a guest vocalist on April 1 and end May 11, replacing Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Toni Braxton, who in turn replaced k.d. lang. Lang took over from Fantasia Barrino, who originated the part at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. The high energy show, directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, features two dozen

Lil' Kim Releases an Ode to Her Haters

Nicki Minaj Apologizes for Using Malcolm X Image

By Cavan Sieczkowski Nicki Minaj has apologized for using an image of Malcolm X for the cover art of her controversial new single, "Lookin A** N****." Minaj released the music video for her new track along with a photo of the cover art shared on her Instagram page, USA Today reported. The cover art featured the song's title on an iconic photo of the civil rights leader holding an M1 Carbine semi-automatic weapon and looking out a window, the outlet noted. (The image originally appeared in Ebony magazine in 1964, a time during which Malcolm X was receiving death threats.) As the Wall Street Journal points out, critics had

Lil’ Kim Lil' Kim is taking on her naysayers in a new track with rapper B Ford. Called "Haterz," the song made its debut recently with Kim writing, "The hate is real." The expectant mother has had plans to release an upcoming mixtape, "Hard Core," for months but the project has been delayed indefinitely. No word from Kim if "Haterz" will be included on the eventual release.

Oxnard Mayor Pro-Tem Carmen Ramirez Given all Daisy Tatum did for Oxnard High School, her name could be on practically any building or field at the school. Tatum threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Saturday's field dedication. The well-liked former Oxnard High School Principal was honored by city officials, family and friends during the OHS softball field dedication ceremony on February 22. Many call Tatum their mentor and over the years have shared stories about the positive influence she had on their lives. A plaque with the field’s new name now faces the softball field. About Tatum After earning bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Arkansas, she took her first teaching job at

a high school in Little Rock. In 1969, she accepted a job at Channel Islands High School as a physical-education teacher. Five years later she became assistant principal, and in 1982 she was moved to Hueneme High School as assistant principal. After 11 years at Hueneme, she was appointed interim principal at Frontier High, the alternative school. She became the first African American principal in Ventura County in 1994 when she was assigned to Oxnard High. And since she has been there, attendance and test scores have increased, and the number of fights has decreased, according to Tatum and several parents. Tatum is also credited with alleviating racial tensions at

the school. Campus supervisor Pat Martinez said he remembers walking through the middle of campus, with blacks on one side and Latinos on the other, and feeling the tension. But now, he said, people of different races interact with little conflict. Though Tatum has been married twice, she spent too much time at school to make either marriage last, she said. She has no children of her own, but cared for a foster child for more than eight years and has invited at least 30 foreign exchange students into her home. During summers, she visits her "children" all over the world. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Mayor Flynn unveiled a plaque for the newly renamed field

Get the Scoop on Crime! On February 20, officers from the Oxnard Police Department were dispatched to a residential burglary in progress in the 1300 block of W. Kamala St. Officers arrived on scene and found that the suspect, Miguel Santillan, was being detained by a resident and one of the burglary victims. An investigation revealed that Santillan entered a residence through a doggy door. He was confronted by the resident and fled into another house across the street. Once inside the second residence, he was again detained and held until officers arrived. Santillan was found to be in possession of property that had been taken from the residences. He was arrested for suspicion of residential burglary and booked into the Ventura County Jail. The property was returned to the owners.

Knowledge is Power, Wisdom is Free, Please Share a Wise Thought or Saying.

“Trust me when they say “experience is the best teacher”, it is. When I was younger people would tell me this, and I wouldn’t pay attention. But, now days I find myself telling people the same thing. From my life’s experiences I feel that I can pass on a few things to help others.”

“Be wise, be kind, share with one another, and be free.”

“In Life some rain must fall, but just enough make the flowers grow.”

“If you’ve always done what you’ve always done, you’ll always be where you’ve always been.”

“Everyone gets knocked down, just be one of those people who get up and knock back.”

“If we are so wise, how can we have no answer for help for the homeless population. A wise man named “Jesus” said sell all of your possessions and give to the poor. A wise man would think of others.”

Ben Chavis to N.C. Democrats:

Decide if You Want Me

By Cash Michaels Special to the NNPA from The Carolinian In the aftermath of the recent political firestorm surrounding the nomination of Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. as executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP), Chavis, who had his nomination temporarily withdrawn amid false allegations from moderate and conservative Democrats, says he can and will help the party muster up needed votes to win this fall. But only if the state party can overcome its internal differences and divisions, and unify in asking him to help.

General Motors adds 842K cars to ignition switch recall

DETROIT (KABC) -General Motors doubled the number of vehicles involved in a massive ignition recall linked to multiple fatal crashes. Two weeks ago, the automaker announced the recall of more than 780,000 Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s. GM is now adding 842,000 cars bringing the total to more than 1.6 million vehicles. The vehicles being recalled include: Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s from the 2005 through 2007 model years; Saturn Ion compacts from 2003

through 2007; and Chevrolet HHR SUVs and Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky sports cars from 2006 and 2007. Most of the cars were sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. GM says a faulty ignition switch could shut off the engine and electrical power. The problem is being linked to several fatal crashes. The company admits it may have been too slow issuing the recall. GM North American President Alan Batey issued a rare apology saying, “We are deeply sorry and we are working

to address this issue as quickly as we can.” According to chronology documents GM filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the company knew of the problem as early as 2004 and was told of at least one fatal crash in March of 2007. GM issued service bulletins in 2005 and 2006 telling dealers how to fix the problem with a key insert, and advising them to tell customers not to dangle too many items from their key chains.

California Banks Buy Little from Minority-Owned Businesses, New Study Finds

SAN FRANCISCO California's largest banks buy few goods and services from minority-owned businesses, reports a new study from The Greenlining Institute, released this morning in San Francisco. In a state where people of color make up 60 percent of the population, banks obtained less than eight percent of the goods and services they procured in 2012 from businesses owned by African Ameri-

cans, Latinos, Asians or Native Americans. ESCAPING THE OLD BOY NETWORK: The Banking Industry and Supplier Diversity is the first study to ever examine in detail the degree to which banks with the largest California market share contract with diverse-owned businesses. "Banks are a key engine of our economy, purchasing over $51 billion in goods and services in 2012," said Green-

lining Institute Economic Equity Director Sasha Werblin. "It should not be considered acceptable that their supplier networks so completely fail to reflect the diversity of California." Key findings of the report include: • Entrepreneurship is essential to the health of communities of color. Minority business enterprises (MBEs) outpaced the growth of their counterparts BANKS, See page 11B

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.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court.

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 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.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of DAVID REINIG AKA DAVID HUGH REINIG AKA DAVID H. REINIG. A Petition for Probate has been filed by ERIC REINIG in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA.

The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: MARCH 12, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Justice Center. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: /S/Alfred R. Keep (CSB #032192) LAW OFFICE OF ALFRED R. KEEP 4266 E.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of PETER J. MORENO; PETER JOSEPH MORENO. A Petition for Probate has been filed by MICHELE SUPAN in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that MICHELE SUPAN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: 3/20/14 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, California 93036, Juvenile Justice Center. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: /S/Robert P. Wright, Esq. (CSB #200957) LAW OFFICES OF ROBERT P.

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.

(This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

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.

Tri-County Sentry THOMAS From page 11A that interest rates are offered for homes and automobiles are not slights but pernicious economic discrimination. Thomas willfully reduces institutional racism to oversensitivity, when one more cognizant of history might acknowledge that both micro and macro inequities impact economic advancement, and quality of life. Thomas is joined by George Zimmerman, who says his massacre of Trayvon Martin has nothing to do with race, and has cast himself as the victim in a tragedy he perpetuated. Thus, Michael Dunn, objecting to loud music, aimed multiple bullets at a vehicle holding four young Black men, killing one, Jonathan Davis, who was leaning away from the window of the vehicle, weaponless. Hiding behind the Stand Your Ground law, he says he felt threatened. Others posit (more correctly) that he objected to a young man mouthing off at him when he demanded that they turn down their music. If he felt so “threatened” why did he even bother to approach the car of young men minding their business? What has race got to do with it? In the time when people didn’t talk about race, this question might not be asked. Today, because people perceive “slights,” (like the murder of young Black men), the question of race inevitably and appropriately comes up. Thomas dissented in the Hudson case, which awarded an inmate $800 after he claimed cruel and unusual punishment when he was beaten so badly that his dental plate was broken in his mouth. I guess he regarded police brutality as a simple “slight.” People talk about race (and gender) more because they are not muzzled by an institutional racism that made it impossible to have these conversations without consequence, because “race champions” were beaten, firebombed, and killed because they dared seek social and economic justice. Thomas may lack institutional memory but he, frankly, makes a fool of himself when openly displays his ignorance. Julianne Malveaux is a Washington, D.C.-based economist and writer. She

Dinner was served and entertainment was provided by one of the past tour participants, Cheryl Gilbreath, whose professional name is Geneva Renée. Gilbreath is a pharmacist and Howard University graduate. She is also a professional singer and received honorable mention for her new CD, Beautiful Wonder, from the Grammys. Throughout the event, past participants stood at the podium and shared their experiences about attending the tour. A common theme participants mentioned was being appreciative for having the opportunity to experience the different culture and history that HBCUs provided and visiting so many. The first annual event was so well attended that three extra tables had to be set up. “I want to thank you all for your love and support. The community came out in force and it let me know that we are all about our kids,” said Dr. Irene Pinkard. Looking out into the crowd she continued, “Every one of you showed us that you trust us. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts that you would put that much trust in us and be here for our inaugural event.” Bedford Pinkard stressed the opportunity that Pinkard Youth Institute provides to local youth. “We’ve had youngsters go with us that have never been away from home on the weekend or never spent a night away from home, but we had them for a whole week. I say thank you to the parents and all of the support here this evening.” Pinkard Youth Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the empowerment of youth. The organization sponsors educational workshops, seminars, activities and events that will educate and expose young people to opportunities that will enhance their awareness and need for community service. CHAVIS From page 1B the party’s African-American Caucus has issued a statement backing Voller, and the nomination of Chavis. In an exclusive interview with The Carolinian and Wilmington Journal newspapers , Chavis said, “It is up to the [NCDP]…” if he is to become executive director. “I would never try to impose my leadership on anyone or anything.” Chavis says Chairman Voller, whom he had known for only a short time since the Wilmington Ten Pardons of Innocence Project and had supported as chair, approached Chavis with the offer to become an interim NCDP executive director. The previous executive director, Robert Dempsey, was summarily fired by Voller Feb. 9, according to that statewide petition letter to the state Executive Council, because he allegedly, “… has ignored matters brought to his attention by members of minority groups within the Democratic Party. The members are loyal voting Democrats, and on a daily basis fight Governor Mc-

Crory and General Assembly Republicans, while experience unprofessional treatment within one’s own party is outrageous.” Gracie Galloway, Democratic chairperson of the Eighth Congressional District, which includes Mecklenburg County, confirmed in an interview that Dempsey was unresponsive to the needs of “minority” members of the NCDP, having dealt with him personally on several organizational issues. Chavis was moving back home to North Carolina to pursue other opportunities – particularly to help historically black colleges and universities – but says he was willing to lend his talents and services to the NCDP when Voller made the executive director offer for what is considered a crucial midterm election year. But once word leaked out, it didn’t take long for Chavis to realize that those in the party who opposed the progressive politics of Voller were moving swiftly to block his nomination. “Some of the people who opposed Voller used this as an opportunity to create their own agenda,” Chavis said. “I thought that when the chairman of the [NC] Democratic Party extended an overture, that his overture was representative of the political will of at least a majority of the officials at the party.” He explained, “I would have never entertained the idea of becoming executive director of the NCDP if I didn’t feel that it was a sincere overture.” Chavis said Chairman Voller had hoped to unite all factions of the party around a massive voter registration effort, which needed to start immediately in order to generate enough of a statewide base to carry the Democrats to victory in November. The key was to do what the Obama campaign successfully did in 2008, namely bring new voters into the base. With a tight statewide race between incumbent Democratic Senator Kay Hagan and any Republican and GOP redistricting essentially making almost every Republicanled voting district bulletproof on the state and congressional levels, many felt Chavis said his previous experience at running voter registration campaigns on national, regional and statewide levels, plus his skills communicating with young people through his Hip Hop Action Network with Russell Simmons, might be the NCDP’s best hope of taking North Carolina back from the Republicans. Chavis said there are 1 million unregistered voters, many of them Black or Latino. “My motive was to come to serve the people of North Carolina, to serve institutions of higher learning, and to serve those, heretofore, whose rights have been denied and suppressed,” Chavis said. But before his plane could touch down Feb. 11 in Raleigh, Democrats opposed to Voller had revived allegations of sexual harassment against Chavis from his days as executive director of the NAACP 20 years ago and his brief membership in the Nation of Islam. Chavis says though there was a settlement of a sexual harassment allegation when he was executive director of the NAACP in 1994, it was a “totally false” allegation, with no admission of guilt. He also vehemently denied charges of anti-Semitism that grew out of his relationship with Minister Louis Farrakhan. Chavis said he works with Jews “almost every day,” adding that his critics would be hardpressed to find any statements by him expressing hatred of Jewish people, because he’s never made any. Chavis said he hasn’t been a member of the NOI for years, and is a member of

Friday

Oak Level United Church of Christ in Manson, N.C. Chavis says what has happened in the past two weeks proves that there is a fear in North Carolina that is not just generated by Republicans, and that’s what has North Carolina “trending backwards.” He said, “If the [NCDP] wants me to serve [as executive director], I am open to that overture, but it’s up to them. I’m not going to stand still.” Chavis asked Chairman Voller to with draw his nomination, possibly to regroup in 30 days. Last week, a statewide petition letter, addressed to the NCDP State Executive Council, not only denounces the attacks on Chavis, but challenges those members to own up to the party’s own misdeeds of sexual harassment coverup and criminal corruption by elected officials, before they judge the civil rights leader. Eighth District Chairperson Gracie Galloway says she wants Democrats to sign the letter, and send it to Chairman Voller at NC Democratic Party Headquarters. Galloway calls what happened to Dr. Chavis, “ a travesty.” CARS From page 1B company’s records showed that only 474 vehicle owners got the key inserts. The company thought the service bulletin was sufficient because the car’s steering and brakes were operable even after the engines lost power, according to the documents. By the end of 2007, GM knew of 10 cases in which Cobalts were in front-end crashes where the air bags didn’t inflate. In 2005, GM initially approved an engineer’s plan to redesign the ignition switch, but the change was “later canceled.” Drivers with these vehicles will be notified. Dealers will replace the ignition switch for free, but GM said it will take some time for the parts to be manufactured and sent to dealers. No time frame was given for making the repairs. http://abclocal.go.com BANKS From page 1B between 2002 and 2007. When MBEs do business with major institutions like banks, they generate wealth and create jobs in their communities, but these firms still face challenges breaking through “old boy networks” and obtaining contracts. • Banks are major purchasers of goods and services, and thus a huge potential engine of economic activity. In 2012, the participating banks in this report spent over $51.05 billion on goods and services. • Nationwide, contracting with minority business enterprises was nominal, with median spending at just 5.96 percent of total contract dollars and ranging from 3.46 percent to 8.37 percent. Bank of America was responsible for nearly half of all total dollars spent with MBEs. • California MBE contracting was only slightly better, and pales in comparison to the state’s diverse population. The banks’ 7.72 percent median spending with diverse businesses fails to represent a state that is 60 percent people of color. Only five banks currently track state-specific spending in substantial detail, and many with substantial California market share do not. • Currently, no uniform standard exists for how to measure banks’ investment in supplier diversity, making “apples to apples” comparisons impossible. The federal Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion should create standard reporting regulations to create transparency and assist the financial sector, advocates and small businesses as they work together to improve opportunities for minority business enterprises.

Tonight’s show at The Canyon should be no exception. Opening sets by Shaky Feelin’ and Ana Popovic. Tickets are $30 and $55 in advance and $35 and $60 on the day of the show.
