Black College Tour Creates a Village

By Tim Pompey For Bedford and Irene Pinkard, the thought of sponsoring a black college tour started with the graduation of one of their cousins from Prairie View A&M University, a historical black college located near Houston, Texas. “As we thought about it,” said Irene, “we said that it would be a good thing for youngsters here to see a black college graduation.” For their initial tour, they recruited some kids from their church. “We took six kids in all,” she said. “We rented a van and our cousin fed us breakfast, lunch, and dinner. While we were at Prairie View, one of the deans met with the kids to talk about admissions.” The kids loved it. More important, they were amazed to learn that black colleges actually existed. As Irene explained: “When we saw the surprise and the pride the students had in seeing this, we said we need to do this because there’s definitely a need for them to see this.” That was twenty-five years ago. Last April, the Pinkards and their chaperones took twenty-four prospective college students on their 25th annual tour. A small sample of colleges along their route included Texas Southern in Houston, Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans, Grambling State University in Grambling (Louisiana), and Huston-Tillotson College in Austin. Irene notes how news

Around the Tri-Counties Respect Inez Knows

Being respected has a longer shelf-life than being popular. Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan Recognize what’s right in front of your face. Look in the mirror and face the music. People treat you how you teach them to treat you. Remember, what you radiate, you resonate and then you attract it back into your life. The cards you are dealt in life are your responsibility. Replace compensating for weaknesses with capitalizing on your strengths. Do what you do well often and recover quickly from setbacks. Decide to be respected and draw a line in the sand. Trust your judgment, deliver tough love and grow that backbone. Being respected has a longer shelf-life than being popular. These five keys will help you raise your standards and build your character! Key#1 Get fear out of your life! When you make the decision to release fear, indecision and procrastina-

tion out of your life, you will experience earth shattering results. Say it out loud? FEAR GET OUT OF MY LIFE! Scream it at the top of your lungs and say it every day, this will help release the enemy of fear out of your life forever. If your past is holding you back, then reach down and take off the shackles that are holding you back to your past. Do it! Take those shackles off your mind right now and release your negative past that is holding you back from success. If you think it’s silly to shout out loud or physically do something outside of your comfort zone to release something in your life that is holding you back, then you don’t want it bad enough! That’s right. I said it. You don’t want to be free bad enough if you can’t release yourself from the enemy of fear, doubt, procrastination or even your past. Key #2 Know the TRUTH about You. “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” “If you don’t know the truth you will not be free.” I only receive the truth about myself and you should too. People try to tell us their side of the truth all the time through their opinions, and even Paid Advertisement

their lies but it’s important to focus on the truth that you know about yourself and not what someone else thinks. Remember, the center of the word truth is “U”. You must believe in yourself and associate with other champions that know the real truth about you. Key #3 Never stop Building you. I am consistently building my belief structure with my “rollover” principle every morning when you roll out of bed, you roll right into the present. The past is gone. The present is today. Get up and open that present with great expectation for the first few minutes of your day pray and say what you are thankful for out loud…right when you get out of bed this will predict the rest of your day. But you can’t just do it one day. You have to do it consistently every single day. Key #4 Habits are the secret to success or failure without a doubt your habits will predict your level of success in life! I have seen in thousands of times in my life and the lives of people I help. If your habits consist of hanging out with naysayers, drinking at the local bar every night and watching garbage television, then how can you expect to WORDS, See page 12A

Inez Lanns

By Inez Lanns Be respectful. Respect your elders. Respect your spouse. Respect your body. Respect yourself. These are common terms we hear throughout life, but do we know what respect really means? Once we get an understanding of what respect is do we know how to utilize it? According to dictionary. com, respect means “to hold in esteem or honor; to regard or to have consideration for; esteem a sense of worth or excellence of a person, a personal quality or ability, or something considered as a manifestation of a personal qual-

ity or ability”. Well, that sounds easy enough, right? I wish it were that simple. All around us we see teenage girls who do not have a sense of self-respect and young men that do not have a sense of regard for authority. Graffiti, theft and vandalism are constantly ruining the property of others displaying a lack of respect for another person’s property. What happened to the times where people would not dare use foul language around an older person? Or when young men wouldn’t just watch a woman walk by carrying heavy items and not offer to help? These are just a few examples, but the list goes on. How did this problem seem to multiply so quickly? As individuals do we consider ourselves as being respectful of those around us, and how are we actively teaching the next generation to esteem those within their sphere of life? Let us be mindful of the example we set in our every day interactions. Do

we demonstrate a respect for other people’s time by being on time? Too many a persons who keep others waiting or continuously reschedule commitments, show a lack of respect for others’ calendars or for those persons themselves. We need to be people of integrity, people of our word, because in all actuality our time really is our lives. When a person needs their space, one way to show respect is by willingly giving it to them without taking it personal. Although we may have differences in thoughts, words or opinions, we can still respect the person in spite of our differences as people. We don’t have to argue, fight against them or attempt to bring them down, but allow them to say their word and actually have their own opinion. To respect your boss or those in authority is not a choice, it is a regard for their position that we uphold. Remember others are watching, listening and RESPECT, See page 12A

Poor Education, Pajamas in Public, Cheap Food, Tiny Cars, Bicycles Everywhere, Is America Becoming A Third World Country?

By Gary L. Harbour

Marcus Bagley, 30 Simi Valley, CA

George Elzie, 50 Oxnard, CA

Lamar Ludy, 30 Oxnard, CA

“I would say “No”. It’s definitely important to dress to impress in certain situations, but there is nothing wrong with being comfortable. Same goes for cars. If some want a more economical vehicle that should be their choice as it’s actually smarter to do. Education should be evaluated by every school. We should be in a day and age where our programs should be close in alignment. I think our country is just in a state of being comfortable and not going beyond our means.”

“No, it isn’t. I believe perception to some of the issues in the question tend to sway individual answers, but personally, in many ways America is just now catching up to much of the world. Western civilization that began in Europe has been driving compact vehicles and riding bicycles as alternative transportation for decades. Air pollution and congested roadways are near non-existent there. I won’t view the pajamas in public as third world criteria but I do consider it as inappropriate attire in public.”

“In many respects, yes. Our teachers are often overwhelmed with too many students and not enough resources. Our youth dress oftentimes in ways once deemed inappropriate. Our food is pumped full of steroids and antibiotics. I don’t mind tiny cars if they are environmentally efficient, or people riding bicycles, as I enjoy and wish I could ride mine more often. Will America truly lose its place as a world power? Only time will tell.”

“I think the shrinking of the middle class contributes significantly to this issue. As America becomes more defined as a ‘have and have not’s’ society, we likely will be even more impacted.”

“I don’t think we are becoming a “Third world country”, but it is always important to evaluate social trends and know that we have the power to make a change.”

“Besides poor education, all of these other traits are that of a utopian society. Being able to wear what you please, having access to nourishment at great low rates and people becoming aware of the state of the environment so low emission vehicles and bicycles are more widely used. It may be a different perspective that that of the question’s connotation, but who can argue with these positive things when the mindset of society, for whatever reason, increases the quality of life? I do believe the mindset of America is headed in a better direction in regards to education. I still wouldn’t classify the mindset as a third world one. But, we are gaining momentum from the “2008 crash of the market.” So the best is yet to come, especially if society’s mindset is positive and united.”

Kevin Johnson:

New Name for Redskins 'Should Strongly Be Considered'

By Dave Jamieson Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson said that Redskins owner Dan Snyder should think about giving his

football team a new name. "I think it should strongly be considered," Johnson, a former NBA point guard, said on "NBC's Meet the Press."

Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson "I think the Native American community and many others feel that's not the right name going forward, and I think the NBA set a great example that you can act swiftly and decisively." Johnson wasn't the first political figure to suggest that Snyder should take a cue from the NBA, which quickly moved to ban Clippers owner Donald Sterling from the league for life after his racist comments came to light. Last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor to argue that Washington needs a team name that doesn't denigrate Native Americans. Snyder has said emphatically that he won’t change the team name, once telling USA Today that the paper could quote him on the matter in capital letters. Under mounting pressure, however, Snyder has tried to show his concern for the Native American community, recently launching a charity organization for the community’s benefit.

By Tim Dahlberg LAS VEGAS — It might have been the toughest $32 million Floyd Mayweather Jr. ever made. Marcos Maidana did everything but beat Mayweather, taking him 12 tough rounds before losing a majority decision. Mayweather remained unbeaten, but not by much. Maidana swarmed all over him from the opening bell and gave him perhaps his toughest fight in a 16-year professional career. Cut over his eye and temporarily blinded by a head butt in the fourth round, Mayweather had to rally in the last half of the fight to avoid losing for the first time since he was beaten on a controversial decision in the 1996 Olympics. In the end, though, Mayweather got the win — just as he did in his previous 45 fights in a decision that was met with disbelief by Maidana and booed heavily by the crowd. He retained his welterweight title by winning 117-111 on one scorecard and 116-112 on another. A third judge

Marcos Maidana and Floyd Mayweather Jr. had it even at 114-114. Maidana threw far more punches, but Mayweather was more accurate with his as the two battled into the late rounds with the fight still very much in doubt. Cheered on by a large contingent of Argentine fans, Maidana took the fight to Mayweather, who was cut by the right eye in the fourth round by an accidental head butt. "It was a tough, competitive fight," Mayweather said. "I normally like to go out there and box and move. But he put pressure on me. I wanted to give the fans what

they wanted to see so I stood and fought him. Maidana raised his arms in victory when the final bell sounded, and Mayweather watched pensively from his corner as the scorecards were added up before he was declared the winner. Maidana, who was cheered by the crowd as he left the ring, said he wanted a rematch, and both promoter Richard Schaefer and Mayweather said he just might get one after nearly pulling off one of the biggest upsets in recent years.

Yasiel Puig Crashes into Wall Trying to Make Game-Saving Catch

By Michael Klopman Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was injured after throwing his body into the wall as he tried to make a game-saving catch in the bottom of the ninth inning. With two outs and the go-ahead run at third base, Miami's Jeff Baker hit a line drive to right field. Puig raced back and made a leaping attempt, but he missed the ball and violently crashed into the fence. To make matters worse, the ball bounced off the wall and hit Puig in the face before he landed hard onto the warning track. The play resulted in a walk-off double and the Marlins went on to win 5-4. The Cuban slugger was attended to by the team trainers before walking off

U.S. Track Star Returns Olympic Medal After Drug Test

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Sprinter Tyson Gay accepted a one-year suspension after testing positive for a banned substance nearly a year ago and returned the silver medal he won in the men's 400-meter relay at the 2012 London Olympics. The US Anti-Doping Agency announced that Gay's one-year ban began June 23, the day his sample was collected at the U.S. championships. His sanction is subject to appeal by International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) and by the World Anti-Doping Agency, USADA said. As part of the penalty, Gay, the American recordholder in the 100, also accepted loss of results dating to July 15, 2012, the date of when he first used a product that contained a banned substance. He was a member of the relay team

Sprinter Tyson Gay at the London Games that finished second to a Jamaican team anchored by Usain Bolt. The Americans set a national record with a time of 37.04 seconds. Gay has given his medal back to the United States Olympic Committee. USADA said in a statement that upon receiving notification of his positive tests, Gay voluntarily

withdrew from all competition prior to the 2013 world championships in Moscow and has not competed since. The 31-year-old Gay could've been given a penalty twice as long, but received consideration after assisting USADA in the investigation into his positive test. USADA said he tested positive for the presence of an exogenous androgenic anabolic steroid. "We appreciate Tyson doing the right thing by immediately withdrawing from competition once he was notified, accepting responsibility for his decisions, and fully and truthfully cooperating with us in our ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding his case," USADA CEO Travis Tygart said in a statement. Gay has until June 16 to enter a petition in order to gain entry into the meet.

The 18 year-old senior at Alliance William & Carol Ouchi High School in South Los Angeles quickly dismissed UC Merced, Cal Poly Pomona and Syracuse University, the other schools where she'd been accepted. It has taken weeks, however, for her classmate, Sabrina Montgomery, 17, to decide on a college, weighing the strengths and weaknesses of UCLA versus UC San Diego, after not getting into her No. 1 choice, UC Berkeley.

In California and across the nation, students are reassessing campuses, consulting counselors and crunching financial aid numbers ahead of Decision Day deadline to submit deposits to their college of choice. Edwards and Sabrina, like many other black students, are weighing other

concerns, too, such as the campus climate and the presence of student groups, faculty and mentors who would provide a network of support. In the nearly 20 years since California voters approved Proposition 209, banning consideration of race in public college admissions, the number of black students at UCLA, UC Berkeley and other campuses has plummeted. University of California leaders say that they want to improve those figures and that campuses are attempting more outreach into predominantly minority high schools, among other things. But for black students, a campus with few of their peers can be a daunting prospect. Some black and Asian students at UCLA also have denounced the racial climate at the Westwood COLLEGES, See page 12A

CHICAGO -- Less than 24 hours after a group of authors, publishers and writers launched an online campaign calling for more diversity in publishing, the #weneeddiversebooks effort has already gone viral around the world. Everyone from librarians in California to school kids in Africa are taking to Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram to share their reasons for why the publishing world needs to more diversity. "Library is the first place kids can assert themselves as individuals and make their own choices," Starr LaTronica, president of the Association for Library Service to Children -- a division of the Chicago-based American Library Association -- told HuffPost. "If you only stick to what you know, you're creating this poverty of experience for kids and funnel-

ing them into that." According to a 2012 study from the Cooperative Children's Book Center, in a survey of 3,600 books for children: • 3.3 percent of them were about African-Americans • 2.1 percent of them were about Asian-Pacific Americans • 1.5 percent were about Latinos • 0.6 percent were about

American Indians "You don't feel invited to the party if you don't see yourself reflected in the literature," LaTronica said. "Why would you be drawn in something you don't see yourself in at all? It's so important to those kids who don't have the exposure to a bigger world. It helps them build that respect and empathy and understanding." Sarah Park Dahlen, an assistant professor of library information science at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn. told HuffPost the lack of diversity in publishing has persisted for decades, noting "There's a lot of criticism that editors are relying on just the old standards instead of cultivating new talent." "Diverse readers grow up to be more empathetic," Dahlen added, citing American Indian blogger Debbie Reese who has long BOOKS, See page 12A

The software also uses the phone’s Global Positioning System (GPS), Wi-Fi, and Cellular technology to monitor the phone’s location, letting parents know where their child is located. “We are extremely proud to announce the official launch of TeenSafe. We understand children are getting mobile phones at younger ages each year. Wonderful advancements in technology have given us the ability to have the world at our fingertips in an instant. As parents we know that along with the good this technology offers, there is a tremendous risk in giving them an opportunity to stumble upon dangers that can affect their whole life. TeenSafe allows parents the ability to make sure their kids are using this very powerful technology safely and responsibly,” said Scott Walker, Co-Founder of TeenSafe.

The idea for TeenSafe was born through personal experiences involving the founders’ teens and their mobile devices, which could have been prevented with the use of monitoring software. Teens today are constantly subjected to extremely challenging social, cyber bullying, sexual harassment and peer-pressure issues that are often communicated through mobile devices without a parent’s knowledge. TeenSafe provides parents with the ability to see these messages and intervene before any of these types of activities have the potential to do harm. In addition to monitoring a child’s activity for risky behavior, TeenSafe can also help validate a child’s good behavior by using their mobile technology responsibly, which provides peace of mind to parents.

State News Gaines Bone Marrow Awareness Month Jackson Bill to Help Long-Term Resolution Wins Assembly Passage Unemployed Passes Out of Committee

SACRAMENTO – Assemblywoman Beth Gaines, R-Roseville, in partnership with Be the Match, presented Assembly Concurrent Resolution 122, designating May as Bone Marrow Registry Awareness Month in conjunction with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Man and Woman of the Year Campaign. ACR 122 was approved by the Assembly on a bipartisan vote. The need for more bone marrow donors was brought to Gaines’ attention through local LLS Woman of the Year Candidate Bernice Jimenez Creager, who campaigns to raise funds and awareness for the issue in memory of her cousin Danny, who passed away from Leuke-

Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) announced a total of $15,926,537 in Department of Health and Human Services grant to Bay Area community health care providers. These grants will allow Alameda County Health Care Services Agency, Asian Health Services, La Clinica de La Raza, Lifelong Medical Care and West Oakland Health Council, Inc. to provide quality and affordable medical and dental services to underserved populations in the East Bay. “I am proud that these community health centers will receive this critical federal funding to continue

Subcommittee, and cochair of the Congressional Asian and Pacific American Caucus Healthcare Taskforce, I will continue fight for resources to enable community health centers to provide the medically underserved quality and affordable healthcare in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.” The individual grant amounts are: Alameda County Health Care Services Agency: $1,131,856; Lifelong Medical Care: $2,896,217; La Clinica de La Raza, Inc.: $5,742,761; Asian Health Services: $2,757,336; and West Oakland Health Council, Inc.: $3,398,367.

SACRAMENTO – A bill by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (DSanta Barbara) to help the long-term unemployed get job training and get back to work passed out of the Senate Education Committee. The vote was 8 to 1. Every year, more than 7,750 Cal Grant C awards are set aside for vocational and job training. Senate Bill 1028 would require that special consideration in the awarding of those grants be given to the long-term unemployed, those who have been unemployed for six months or longer. Priority would be given to those seeking job training in growing industries with a high demand for workers and higher wages. “Our economy is improving, but there continue to be far too many people who have been unemployed for far too long, “

Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson

Jackson said. “My hope is that this bill will help give some Californians the jump start they need to get working again. It will also help meet the needs of businesses, who need a well-trained workforce to meet the needs of a 21st century economy.” Under SB 1028, annual grant awards of up to $5,000 could be used for up to two years for tuition, fees, books

and other expenses, including living expenses. California has one of the highest long-term unemployment rates in the nation, with close to 700,000 workers who have been unemployed for six months or longer. Research shows that the longer a person is unemployed, the harder it is for them to rejoin the workforce. The long-term unemployed are less likely to get interviews and must submit 3.5 times as many applications to be granted an interview. The bill asks the California Student Aid Commission, in consultation with state and federal agencies, industry leaders and others, to determine which training programs and industries should be prioritized in the grant awards, so that they are aligned with the state’s economic needs.

New Law Will Help Preserve Good Jobs in the Los Angeles Area

El Segundo, CA – California State Board of Equalization (BOE) Chairman Jerome E. Horton announces that space flight property will be exempt from property taxes levied annually beginning January 1, 2015, and for the following ten years. BOE-supported Assembly Bill 777 (Muratsuchi) was signed. “I applaud Governor Brown and the legislature for realizing this exemption will help preserve jobs held by SpaceX employees in Hawthorne, as well for employees throughout our state at other aerospace compa-

nies. This is great news for our state’s economy.” The legislation exempts certain types of space flight

property and its components from property taxes levied by county assessors. The BOE estimates that according to county assessors, the annual property tax loss will be at least $1.1 million. “While this legislation might cause slight losses in property taxes at the local level, the benefits in attracting aerospace companies and well-paying jobs they provide will more than make up for it. Plus, it will enable California to remain at the forefront of this exciting and dynamic industry.”

OAKLAND, Calif.-- Kaiser Permanente registered nurses and consumer advocates revealed how the HMO giant has accumulated a reserve that is $21.7 billion – 1626 percent – more than required by the state, while cutting patient care services and raising premiums on consumers. The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United, California's largest nurses organization, also announced its endorsement of a measure that will appear on this November's ballot to regulate health insurance rates in California. The initiative can force refunds to consumers based on such excessive amounts held in reserve. CNA Treasurer Martha Kuhl, RN noted that California registered nurses regularly "struggle to get our patients the care they need, including people facing financial ruin because of high insurance bills. Too often these struggles are over what the insurance company will pay rather than what is the best care option for patients. This November Californians can confront the bottom line mentality of insurance companies by passing this initiative to rein in these out of control price hikes." "Kaiser has given more

than $7.1 million against rate regulation because it wants to continue overcharging customers," said Jamie Court, proponent of the ballot measure and president of Consumer Watchdog. Kaiser Oakland RN Katy Roemer decried Kaiser's recent rate hikes, which cost small group policyholders $18 million, and individuals $59 million, while cutting patient services. "Kaiser nurses cannot stand by quietly while Kaiser is hiking rates, cutting care and accumulating vast reserves and using patient care dollars to defeat an initiative that begins to bring some accountability into high prices that insurers impose on patients and families," said Roemer. Roemer described a number of ways Kaiser could use the $21.7 billion for the benefit of patients rather than Kaiser executives. Those include admitting patients who need care rather than blocking admissions, stop using "observation status" to circumvent hospital admission and prevent Medicare penalties when patients discharged too soon return to the hospital, stop sending patients home prematurely placing the burden of complex medical care on KAISER, See page 12A

Resilient Three-Year-Old Lives Out His Dream Of Being A Firefighter

By Kate Abbey-Lambertz Tyren Johnson is a very resilient toddler -- at three years old, he's already gone through a more challenging experience than some will ever face. But last week, he got to see his biggest dream come true, and it's been making us smile ever since. Tyren, who lives in Detroit, is a heart transplant survivor. He underwent the difficult surgery last year when he was at the University of Michigan's Children's Hospital with heart problems, according to MLive. After his recovery, Tyren was selected to have his wish granted by Make-A-Wish Michigan, the local arm of the organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. His wish? To be a firefighter. "I love fire trucks, and I want to be a fireman when I grow up," Tyren said. Tyren arrived at De-

cording to the Detroit News. Though Tyren reportedly had little to say to the large crowds of people -maybe overwhelmed by all the attention -- his mother, Tiesha Johnson, told the Detroit Free Press her son was doing well. "We made it -- almost a year now," Johnson said. "You see him running around here. He’s doing excellent."

Tyren Johnson troit Fire Engine Co. 54, decked out in pint-sized firefighter gear and a hat that said "Fire Chief." A crowd of onlookers was there to cheer for him and support him as he sprayed a firehose, met a Dalmation, received a badge and hung out with his fellow firefighters. Detroit Fire Commissioner Edsel Jenkins even "demoted" Fire Chief John King and officially made Tyren chief for the day, ac-

Wisconsin Boy Shoots Self in Head with Mom's Gun

By Andres Jauregui A three-year-old Milwaukee boy remained in critical condition after shooting himself with a gun he found in the glove box of his mother's car. It happened after Kevin Donald's family returned from a shopping trip. While adults weren't looking, Kevin somehow got a hold of the gun and shot himself in the head. Police are still investigating, but so far the shooting appears to be a tragic accident. No arrests have been made. Brittany Petersik, the boy's aunt said that she and the boy's mother were moving a television inside their house when the shot rang out. She thinks Kevin went back into the car and started

playing with the gun. "He thought it was a toy, like we say. Accidents happen, and this was one of the times that it was a major accident," grandmother Jane Triplett said. Neighbors ran to help as they waited for first responders to arrive. "I brought towels and sheets just to kind of stop the blood from flowing -- not pressure it, but just holding, and myself kind of shocked because I’m thinking ‘what if this was my (child)?'" one neighbor, who asked not to be identified, told WITI. "We just all prayed together." Triplett said that her daughter began carrying the weapon after she got carjacked three years ago.

A state Senator’s blog post likening the insurance requirement under President Obama’s health care law to the forced deportation of Jews during the Holocaust drew swift condemnation Monday from leaders of both parties in Tennessee. Republican Sen. Stacey Campfield of Knoxville wrote the comment in a post titled “Thought of the Day.” “Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s,” he wrote. State Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney called the comment “igno-

Sen. Stacey Campfield rant and repugnant,” and called for an immediate apology to the Jewish community. Democratic Party Chairman Roy Herron called the statement “outrageous, pathetic, and hateful.” Campfield in a phone

interview shrugged off the criticism, and said he stands by his comments. “I think Jewish people should be the first to stand up against Obamacare,” Campfield said. “When you have government deciding who gets health insurance and who doesn’t, what services they get and what services they have to provide, they’re really deciding who lives and who dies.” “It’s a slippery slope,” he said. Campfield, who is running for re-election this year, has a long history of controversial statements and legislative initiatives. In 2011, he was the sponsor of a failed bill that sought to ban teaching about gay CAMPFIELD, See page 12A

Among his crimes were shooting a 19-year-old girl and then helping to bury her alive in a shallow grave, where she died. President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry, whose state executes more people than any other, both had similar lines on the Oklahoma execution, saying something went terribly wrong.

Are Mortgages Becoming Easier to Obtain?

Providing Financial Literacy to the Unbanked By Jason Alderman In today's world of Internet banking, smartphone shopping apps and webbased access to investment accounts, it's easy to forget that billions of people around the world – including millions in our own country – lag far behind when it comes to accessing even the most rudimentary financial management tools. Indeed, according to the World Bank: • Approximately 2.5 billion adults worldwide don't have a formal banking account. • In developing economies, only 41 percent of adults have bank accounts (compared to nearly 90 percent in high-income countries). • In developing countries, the wealthiest 20 percent are more than twice as likely to have an account than the lowest 20 percent. • There's a gender inequality as well: 46 percent of men in poorer countries have a formal account, while only 37 percent of women do. These statistics helped form the backdrop for the eighth annual Financial Literacy and Education Summit hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Visa Inc. Renowned U.S. and international finan-

cial experts led lively discussions around the theme, "Providing Financial Literacy Resources to the Unbanked and Underbanked." Approximately 1,500 participants in 50 countries attended or watched the live online telecast. Central to the discussions was the underlying question: "Is financial education important for a segment of the population that is largely excluded from formal financial services?" According to Keynote Speaker Bill Sheedy, EVP, Corporate Strategy, M&A and Government Relations, Visa, and the other panelists, the answer is an unqualified "yes." "Providing these adults with useful, scalable and accessible financial services is just one piece of the puzzle," said Sheedy. "They need to know how to use these products wisely and have the skills and confidence to manage their money soundly. The only way we can be successful in bringing these 2.5 billion people into the economic mainstream is to provide them with financial education long before they ever acquire account numbers." Along with identifying numerous challenges unbanked and underbanked people face, panelists also

Participants who successfully completed the six-week course then had a leg up when responding to government RFPs. • Jennifer Tescher, President & CEO, Center for Financial Services Innovation, cited her organization's funding to help a financial coaching program become more cost-effective by allowing remote sessions and data transfer between clients and volunteer coaches. Followup research showed that the remote-session clients demonstrated greater involvement and participation than subjects who only had in-person counseling. • Leora Klaper, Lead Economist, Finance and Private Sector Research Team of the Development UNBANKED, See page 12A

Investors' Interest is Sparked by Vapor Cigarettes

Vapor cigarettes are causing a stir in the investment world. world away from hazardous, unsafe, cancer-causing cigarettes to a better, cleaner, healthier alternative," says Daniel Balsiger, president of Icon Vapor. "And the time is now." The market for vapor cigarettes -- battery-powered inhalers that turn heated, nicotine-laced liquid into vapor -- is currently small, but growing quickly. In a blog last year for the Motley Fool Network, Ilana Greene, a writer and member of the financial website, wrote that, "Vapor cigarettes are a healthy investment for casual and everyday traders because it [the vapor cigarette industry] is already a $300 million market ... and has the growth potential to become a $1 billion market share within three years." In addition, financial reports from the Wall Street Journal reported that the vapor cigarette industry made $500 million in 2012, while Wells Fargo Securities noted that sales would top $1 billion last year. (As of this printing, actual sales figures were not available.) Although the market for vapor cigarettes is still relatively small when compared to VAPOR, See page 12A

Lenders are reportedly easing credit standards. Wells Fargo, the nation’s largest mortgage lender, recently announced it has cut its minimum credit score for borrowers of Fannie Mae and Freddie-backed loans from 660 to 620. Borrowers with lower credit scores must prove their ability to sustain home ownership, however, says Frank Codel, head of production for Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo is looking for “compensating factors” to close the loan, such as requesting an explanation of a credit history event, reviewing the strength of income and stability of employment. But some borrowers are also have an easier time including gifts from relatives as part of a down payment. And in January, the bank began accepting borrowers with credit scores of 600—down from 640—for FHA loans. Other smaller lenders have also cut some of their requirements recently too. For example, the U.S. unit of TorontoDominion Bank has lowered down payments to 3 percent without, in some cases, borrowers having to

pay mortgage insurance, Bloomberg News reports. Following the housing crisis, banks tightened up credit standards. The Urban Institute estimates that up to 1.2 million loans were prevented from being made in 2012 due to the tightening of credit. Lenders mostly concentrated on the refinancing business, but as rates have risen in the past year, refinancing has fallen drastically. Lenders are now looking to the purchase market to

ramp up their business. Credit standards are at the loosest point in at least two years, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association index, reflecting March data. What’s more, Morgan Stanley data shows that nearly 16 percent of the mortgages for home purchases in March were issued to borrowers who had monthly debt obligations exceeding 43 percent of their pay—up from 13.4 percent in mid-2012.

By Blanche Evans You may have loved your home when you first moved in, but over the years your feelings have changed. You start to dream about another setting for your household -- on the beach, in the sky, on a golf course. You dream about a downstairs master suite, a bigger yard, an open kitchen -- something you don't have about your home right now. So how do you know it's time to make a move? Here are three tests to help you make a decision: 1. You can afford to move. Affording a new home means you have enough for a down payment (between 10 to 20 percent), your income and credit are good enough to qualify for a bigger loan, and your debt-to-income ratio is below 36 to 40 percent. You should also be able to comfortably handle moving costs, homeowner's association fees or maintenance costs for your new home. When you run the numbers, be sure to

Blanche Evans include higher mortgage payments, including higher hazard insurance and property tax escrows. 2. You can sell your home easily. Your home is worth more than your current mortgage, to the point that you can easily cover approximately eight percent of the sales price for closing costs. You're willing to spend the money and/or time to put your home in top condition for marketing, especially for repairs and updates that will help you sell faster in the cur-

rent market. You're prepared to do the dirty work of cleaning, decluttering, and staging your home. Most important, you're willing to price your home for the current market. 3. You can improve your quality of life. It's not just about the costs; it's about how you want to live your life. Having more space is one of the most important things to homebuyers. A bigger kitchen can mean quality time cooking with your spouse. A different neighborhood can mean better access to friends, family, an easier commute, better schools or other benefits and amenities. Ultimately, you want your next home to solve problems for you, like giving you more room for your growing family. Think carefully about the pros and cons of moving. Most real estate professionals would suggest that you sell your home before you buy a new one, but you also need to have a plan and know where you're going. HOME, See page 12A

Spotlight on Health:

By Carole Fleck Employers added a h i g h e r- t h a n - p r e d i c t e d 288,000 jobs to the economy in April and older workers seemed to benefit a little from that momentum, the government said. Among men age 55 and older, the jobless rate in April declined slightly to 4.7 percent from 4.8 percent in March. Older women saw a similar drop, to 4.6 percent from 4.7 percent the month before. For some perspective on the improving employment picture, consider that in April 2013, the jobless rate for older men stood at 5.7 percent and for women it was 5.1 percent. The jobs landscape brightened for workers of all ages in April. The unemployment rate fell to 6.3 percent from 6.7 percent in March. To see how far we’ve come, the jobless rate in October 2009 was 10 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The spring rebound,

The heart is one of the most complex organs in our body, affecting many other parts of our body and our health. Having a healthy heart is a key to having a healthy body; heart health and a healthy life go handin-hand. This makes having reliable, accurate information about your heart health so important. Reliable information is even more important when you or your loved ones are facing questions about issues or conditions affecting the heart, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, or other related diseases. This is especially important for African American and Hispanic communities; heart disease is more prevalent among African Americans and Hispanics—as are some of the factors that increase the risk of developing it, including high blood pressure, overweight and obesity, and diabetes.

Five Ways to Make Your Retirement Not Suck

By Ann Brenoff By most indicators, there is a Silver Tsunami coming -- millions of people who will enter retirement without enough money to house and feed themselves for the rest of their lives. Here are five ways to make sure your retirement doesn’t suck. 1. Figure out where you will live. Housing is everyone’s big ticket item. Maintaining a home or apartment in cities like New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco can be super-expensive. There are many places where you can pay far less for rent or home ownership. Getting a handle on just this one monthly expense can totally shape your retirement life. 2. It’s not too late to start saving. Many of us haven’t yet figured out that saving can feel as good as spending. What we do is spend to our earning capacity; the more we earn, the more we purchase. AARP says that

three out of five households headed by someone 65 or older have no money in retirement savings accounts. That’s none, as in zero. 3. Learn to live on a budget. Retired people live on fixed incomes that generally are a combination of Social Security and a company pension and/or withdrawals from their 401k or IRA. They may have some passive investment income, but that’s not most of us. Today’s job market isn’t a happy place for most post-50s. They are met with rejection and told that their skills are out-of-date. So if you are entertaining a fantasy of be-

ing able to pick up a little supplemental income from a part time job when you retire, well, you might want to change the channel to some reality TV. It’s smarter to practice living on a budget -- because that’s what you will be doing in retirement. 4. Prepare your home for the long run. If you own your home and plan on staying in it, now is a good time to make sure it can accommodate you as you get older. Think about things like steps, first floor master bedrooms, cabinets that you can reach. And think RETIREMENT, See page 12A

Whether you’re meeting people through social media networks, dating sites or through online ad-

vertising, Massie offers these cautionary tips for fellow boomers. • Don’t use Craigslist as a dating website. People advertising on Craigslist haven’t been vetted by anyone – you have no idea if anything they’re saying is true, Massie says. Several people have died at the hands of those they met on Craigslist, and it’s not just women who are vulnerable. In 2012, Troy LaFerrara was killed by a young couple he met through a “companionship” ad. • If it looks too good to be true, beware! Let’s face it, as we age, we want to believe we’re still the hot young stud or studette that we were in our prime, but we’re not, Massie says. If some beautiful woman or extraordinarily handsome man suddenly becomes completely enamored of you, be wary. Yes, it does happen sometimes, but we become extremely vulner-

able when we want something to be true so badly that we ignore all signs to the contrary. • Don’t rush into cohabitation. If you have an independent lifestyle – your own home, etc. – don’t be tempted to move right in with your new honey. Think about the advice you’d give your own kids or grandkids! Once you’re sharing an abode, that person not only has access to all of your personal belongings, computer, accounts, etc., he or she also has more control if you’ve moved into their place. If you invite him or her to move in with you, it can be very difficult to remove the person if you realize you’ve saddled up with a freeloader. Many of the safety and other concerns associated with meeting people online are the same no matter what your age, Massie notes.

Are You Dehydrated During Your Workout Program?

Stay properly hydrated during your workout. (NewsUSA) - Studies have shown that Americans are chronically dehydrated. In fact, it appears that we will drink anything but the one thing our body needs -- water. Highlighting this point is a study of college football players preparing for a major NFL scouting event by trainer Amanda Carlson. She found that 98 percent of them were dehydrated at the morning evaluation. Another study by researchers at Tufts University found that college athletes who were mildly dehydrated and engaged in high-impact aerobics for 60 to 75 minutes without adequate water intake were more likely to feel fatigued, confused, angry, depressed or tense. The point? No matter if you're an elite athlete, a weekend warrior or a gym rat, water matters. "In my experience, most people are not aware of how much they're drinking and are not drinking enough -- many, as little as half of what they need," says Carlson, director of

Apple's Spending a Ton of Money to Make the 'iWatch' Happen

By Christina Farr SAN FRANCISCO Apple Inc is building a team of senior medical technology executives, raising hackles in the biotechnology community and offering a hint of what the iPhone maker may be planning for its widely expected iWatch and other wearable technology. Over the past year, Apple has snapped up at least half a dozen prominent experts in biomedicine, according to LinkedIn profile changes. One prominent researcher moved two weeks ago, and Apple is recruiting other medical professionals and hardware experts, although the number of hires is not clear, said two people familiar with the hiring, who declined to be named. Much of the hiring is in sensor technology, an area Chief Executive Tim Cook singled out last year as primed "to explode." Industry insiders say the moves telegraph a vision of monitoring everything from blood-sugar levels to nutrition, beyond the fitness-oriented devices now on the market. "This is a very specific play in the bio-sensing space," said Malay Gandhi, chief strategy officer at Rock Health, a San Fran-

Apple's CEO Tim Cook cisco venture capital firm that has backed prominent wearable-tech startups, such as Augmedix and Spire. He was aware of several of the moves. Apple is under pressure to deliver on Cook's promise of new product categories this year. The company has not introduced a new type of product since the iPad in 2010, a fact that weighs on investors' minds: its stock remains well off its highs despite a series of buybacks and dividend payouts. Investor Carl Icahn tweeted his approval of Apple quarterly results and buyback plans on April 23. "Believe we'll also be happy when we see new products," he added. Apple has registered the trademark "iWatch" in Ja-

pan. Several Apple patents point to wrist-worn devices, and in February, Apple filed a patent for a smart earbud patent that could track steps and detect gestures of the head. One mobile health executive, who asked not to be named, told Reuters he recently sat down with an Apple executive from the iWatch team. He said the company has aspirations beyond wearable devices, and is considering a full health and fitness services platform modeled on its apps store. Apple spokesperson Steve Dowling declined to comment on the company's health-tech plans or its recent hires. The med-tech community is betting on Apple to develop the apps-store style platform so startups can develop their own software and hardware mobile medical applications. "There's no doubt that Apple is sniffing around this area," said Ted Driscoll, a Silicon Valley-based partner at Claremont Creek Ventures, which specializes in digital health and medical devices. He said Apple seemed primarily focused on recruiting engineers with experience in "monitoring the body's perimeters."

What Snapchat Doesn’t Want You to Know About Its Latest Update

Snapchat’s latest update gave users the ability to send self-deleting SMS messages and videos to their friends. Lauded by tech blogs as brilliant, the update became

undeniably popular almost instantaneously. But the update has come with an unexpected cost that has nothing to do with Snapchat’s added func-

tionality. Those who want to use Snapchat’s filters to add a little color boost to their photos will now have to turn on the app’s Location Services to do so. Snapchat’s previous version split the filters into two categories: the locationbased Smart Filters, which required location data to share information like temperature, speed or time of day; or the Visual Filters, which affect saturation and color, like an Instagram filter. Users could opt to turn on one category of filter over the other (or both) if they wanted, meaning those users who were concerned about sharing their location data could still use the Visual Filters. The new Snapchat offers no such option. All filters are lumped together in one On-Off toggle option, which requires your Location Services to be turned on before you can use them. A Snapchat spokesperson did assure the Daily Dot that the use of Location Services data is just for the fun filters, saying, “We rely on location services to provide useful filters, such as speed and weather. We don’t keep locational data, and we don’t associate it with any usernames.” The question that remains is why Snapchat decided to bundle the filters in the first place. It’s understandable why such data would be needed to provide accurate speed, temperature or time; but to just put a sepia tone on an ugly selfie, users shouldn’t have to provide more data than necessary. Those of you concerned about location data should just stick to filterless photos from now on.

Amazon Now Lets You Add to Your Cart By Tweeting

By Mae Anderson NEW YORK — Amazon wants to make shopping online as easy as a tweet. The online retailer is introducing a service that lets Twitter users add Amazon. com products to their carts without leaving the social media site. The service comes as Amazon seeks to make social media a bigger source for sales. Twitter also has been seeking new revenue streams beyond advertising services like promoted tweets. Under the program, users must link their Amazon.com account with their Twitter account. Then they need to add the hashtag #AmazonCart when replying to a tweet that has an Amazon product link. The product will then be automatically added to their shopping cart. Twitter users will get a reply tweet from @MyAmazon as well as an email

from Amazon when the item is successfully added to their cart. The service is for U.S. customers only, although U.K. users have a similar service with the hashtag #AmazonBasket. "This is an example of the constant innovation both Amazon and Twitter are using to push social shopping forward, but I don't think it's going to be a huge needle mover for

either company," said CRT Capital analyst Neil Doshi. "More and more people are showing items they've bought on Twitter, so it might be a way for followers to buy something more quickly." Shares in Seattle-based Amazon.com Inc. rose $1.63 to $309.64 in afternoon trading. Shares in Twitter Inc., which is based in San Francisco, rose 9 cents to $39.11.

By Taylor Casti Google Now already helps millions of users plan their daily commutes, keep track of upcoming flights and find nearby concerts. Now it's moving on to more important tasks: helping users remember where the heck they parked their cars. Aimless wandering through parking lots and city sidewalks are a thing of the past thanks to the latest Google Now update. The update was first spotted by Android Police. Android Police reported on the added function when it was just a rumor at the beginning of April, but now it appears the site's information was correct. Google is now listing the feature on a tech sup-

port page, where users can also learn how to turn off or modify when parking location is used. But the feature may need a little time to work out the kinks. Some are insisting that you get what you pay for

with the free feature. Android Authority's Andrew Gush, for example, says that results are hit or miss at best, but he's hopeful that future updates can bring the feature up to scratch.

Netflix Takes Net Neutrality Fight Straight to the Top

By Alina Selyukh WASHINGTON - After weeks of public outcry, Netflix Inc brought its concerns about Internet neutrality directly to U.S. regulators in meetings with Federal Communications Commission staff, according to sources familiar with the matter. The video streaming company has been outspoken in its push to do away with fees that content companies pay Internet service providers to deliver their video and other data to consumers. Netflix recently agreed to pay such fees to Comcast Corp and Verizon Communications Inc to ensure smooth delivery of its videos, but it argues they weaken the principle of net neutrality, which says all Internet traffic should be treated equally. Netflix's representatives brought that message to the FCC commissioners' offices in meeting with advisers over the course of several days this week, the sources said, as the agency prepares to rewrite so-

called Open Internet rules that regulate net neutrality by setting limits to how Internet providers treat web traffic crossing their networks. The sources spoke anonymously because the meetings have not been publicly revealed yet. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has drafted rules that would soften the agency's stance on payfor-priority to comply with a court rejection of earlier rules. If his proposal is adopted, the FCC would allow some "commercially reasonable" deals where content companies can pay Internet providers to give priority to their traffic and

ensure its smooth delivery to users. Though Wheeler has since said he would not tolerate moves to "degrade the service for all for the benefit of a few," public interest groups and the Web community at large worry that the rules may create "fast lanes" for those who pay up. "Tolls coming for the Web thanks to FCC. What is the FCC thinking?" Netflix Chief Executive Reed Hastings posted on his Facebook page last week when the news of the proposal leaked out. In a blog post on March 20, Hastings took a sharp stance against allowing Internet providers to charge fees for connections, including in deals known as "interconnection" or "peering" agreements that have traditionally been outside the scope of net neutrality as regulated by the FCC. Netflix has been the most outspoken of major U.S. Internet companies on the issue of net neutrality so far.

Commentary

Lee A. Daniels

Bill Fletcher, Jr. that can exist in any country and is not restricted to South Africa. As a result, the term “apartheid,” describing a system of racial categorization and suppression, can and should be applied to what we have seen unfold in Israel since its founding, quite ironically, in 1948. Palestinian land has been seized, allegedly for security reasons, never to be returned. Palestinian refugees have been refused the internationally right of return to the homes and land that they left in the midst of the 1948-49 war. An educational system exists in Israel in which there is a differential in the resources available for Jewish Israelis vs. Palestinian citizens of Israel. And, of course, the Israelis continue an illegal occupation of Palestinian territory that commenced in 1967 whereby the Palestinians have only nominal control of a portion of their own land. Secretary of State Kerry, out of apparent frustration with the antics of the Israeli side in negotiations,

correctly noted that if/ when negotiations break down, the permanent occupation of the West Bank along with Israel’s policies towards its own Palestinian citizens, will shatter any idea that Israel exists as an alleged democratic state. Kerry was, more than likely, trying to appeal to the Israeli establishment to awaken and smell the coffee. Instead, opponents of Palestinian justice threw the coffee in Kerry’s face. Bill Fletcher, Jr. is a racial justice, labor and global justice writer and activist. This past January he led an African American fact-finding delegation to Israel and Palestine.

Sotomayor:

A Voice of Reason Among Reckless Rhetoric Marc H. Morial

“Race matters…because of the long history of racial minorities being denied access to the political process…because of persistent racial inequality in society — inequality that cannot be ignored and that has produced stark socioeconomic disparities.”– Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Supreme Court of the United States. Two weeks ago, in a disturbingly lopsided 6-2 vote, the United States Supreme Court once again became a willing accomplice in the recent onslaught of attacks on 50 years of civil rights progress. On the heels of last year’s decision by the court to dismantle the Voting Rights Act of 1965, on April 22, the Court ruled that Michigan voters had the right to ban race, i.e. affirmative action, as a factor in college admissions. The court’s decision undermines a landmark 2003 ruling that affirmed the use of race-sensitive admissions policies at the University of Michigan Law School because of a compelling interest in fostering diversity in higher education. In 2006, opponents of that ruling successfully campaigned and passed Proposal 2, a state constitutional amendment that gave voters the right to supersede elected university trustees and the right to ban the consideration of race as one of many factors in admissions. It is important to note that only race was singled out for the ban. Other

factors, such as alumni status, athletics and geography remain in place. A federal appeals court subsequently ruled Prop 2 unconstitutional as it violated the Equal Protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The case made its way to the Supreme Court, and the egregious decision in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, the 2006 amendment was allowed to stand. Justice Anthony Kennedy was joined by Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Alito, Scalia, Thomas and Breyer in concurring in the judgment. Having worked on the case when she was Solicitor General, Justice Kagan recused herself. The two dissenting votes were cast by Justices Ginsberg and Sotomayor, the court’s most reliable civil rights defenders. Justice Sotomayor’s written dissent is an exceptionally scholarly, eloquent and impassioned argument in defense of affirmative action. She methodically eviscerates the majority’s legal justification for its decision, citing several previous cases where the court overturned attempts to change rules midstream in ways that were detrimental to minority voters. She also reminds the court of its obligation to right historical wrongs and to expand educational opportunities for those who have traditionally been locked out. Her dissent is based primarily on the court’s untenable allowance of a change

“Thugs in the Dessert” at the Bundy Ranch

Yes, “Apartheid” Describes Israel I was struck by how quickly Secretary of State John Kerry backed down when he was chastised by anti-Palestinian critics for suggesting that Israel might be on the road to becoming an apartheid state. What was so unusual about such a statement? Israeli media commentators, including some political officials, use that term to either describe the current situation or to warn of impending disaster. Here in the U.S, however, we have to fret over using such a term because it, allegedly, might offend someone. If I am critical of anything, it is precisely that Kerry did back down, added to the fact that Israel is not on the road to becoming an apartheid state: it is already such a state.Apartheid is a term that was both used by the White South Africans to describe their system of racial separation and oppression from 1948-1994, as well as an officially recognized term by the United Nations that describes the broader system of racial suppression

MAY 16, 2014

One can be forgiven for thinking the contest for the most outrageous, publiclyexposed racist behavior of recent weeks was between Cliven Bundy, the chiseling Nevada rancher, and Donald Sterling, the despicable billionaire owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. As New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow wrote last week of Sterling’s now-famous taped rant, both men’s words offer “a rare and vivid exposition of the historical themes and loopy logic of the racist mind: possessed of derangement, detached from reason, bereft of morality.” Further, Blow’s column is a must-read for its sharp-eyed analysis that the race-driven pathology of both Sterling and his mistress, V. Stiviano, provides “a disturbing peek at the intersection of racism, misogyny and privilege.” In one sense, that tips the scale between the two toward Sterling. He’s so deeply mired in the psychosexual muck of the slave-master mentality – of being attracted to a woman of African-American and Mexican-American parentage while deluding himself that he’s dominating Black men because he’s so personally powerful and attractive. However, the top prize

in this particular pathetic contest belongs to the reportedly nearly 1,000 men and women who trekked to Bundy’s ranch to be his “militia” in the stand-off he and they manufactured against agents of the federal Bureau of Land Management who had come to end Bundy’s cheating the federal government out of the $1 million. There were these selfdescribed American patriots, with rifles, pistols, revolvers and AK-47s in hand, declaring themselves ready to “protect” a man who had repeatedly said he doesn’t recognize the authority of the federal government. There were these so-called patriots prepared to shoot to kill officers of the United States of America. There were these men and women, so wrapped up in their delusional, mashed-up Hollywood western, “Rambo” and “Dirty Harry” fantasies, clutching their weaponry as if they’d be naked without them, itching for their personal apocalypse. Tim Egan, an op-ed columnist for the New York Times, got it right when, before Bundy’s racist rant, he called this motley crew, “the thugs in the desert.” He wrote, “This phony event brought out the worst of the gun-waving far right,

and the national politicians who are barely one degree of separation from them. … If you changed that picture to Black Panthers surrounding a lawful eviction in the inner city, do you think right-wing media would be there cheering the outlaws?” Egan’s point underscores, as with so many of the forces roiling American society today, how deeply racism motivates White conservatives’ criticism of President Obama and opposition to federal policies. It’s laced through and through the “angry White man” dynamic that pushes so much of the politics of the Tea Party and the Republican Party now—an “aggrieved entitlement” scholar Michael Kimmel calls it in his 2013 book, Angry White Men: American Masculinity and the End of an Era. The anger of these men and women at having lost their “place” in society has numerous causes and targets. But chief among them is the “threat” they feel from the advancement of people of color, especially BUNDY, See page 12A

Beyond the Rhetoric:

of rules that nullify the authority of elected University governing boards and now permit a majority of voters to end affirmative action in higher education – a clear violation of the Equal Protection Clause. Justice Sotomayor writes, “… a majority may not reconfigure the existing political process in a manner that creates a two-tiered system of political change, subjecting laws designed to protect or benefit discrete and insular minorities to a more burdensome political process than all other laws.” Mindful of Michigan’s shameful history of segregation in higher education and of a significant decline in minority enrollment and graduations since Prop 2 took effect, Sotomayor concludes, “The effect of [the Court’s ruling] is that a white graduate of a public Michigan university who wishes to pass his historical privilege on to his children may freely lobby the board of that university in favor of an expanded legacy admissions policy, whereas a black Michigander who was denied the opportunity to attend that very university cannot lobby the board in favor of a policy that might give his children a chance that he never had and that they might SOTOMAYOR, See page 12A

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Still Needed Harry C. Alford

My time in Washington has given me a real primer on the phrase “flavor of the week.” This week, all of the buzz in the nation’s capital is housing. Specifically, the Senate Banking Committee is set to consider Johnson-Crapo, a significant piece of legislation that would completely reconstruct the housing finance system as we know it, eliminate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In their place, the bill would create a new government-backed mortgage-bond insurer and regulatory agency called the Federal Mortgage Insurance Corporation (FMIC) to oversee the secondary mortgage market. But since there is no African-American member of the Senate Banking Committee, it is worth reviewing why this issue is so important to millions of current and prospective African American homeowners – and why the current proposal is a dangerous one. In the past five years, the privately-owned, publiclytraded Fannie and Freddie have been central to bringing stability to the federal housing market, with a full return to profitability earlier this year. But with JohnsonCrapo, Congress is threatening to jeopardize that stability and undo years of

resilience from American taxpayers. That’s the wrong direction. Instead, Congress should be looking to bolster that stability by expanding access to and ensuring affordability of homeownership for all Americans — and especially for underserved communities. The problems that African American and minority borrowers face obtaining access to mortgage credit are well-documented, and should not be a surprise to members of Congress. According to a report in the Washington Times, home loans have been tough to get for most Americans since the crisis, as banks severely tightened lending standards and caused millions of consumers to go into default and lose their good credit ratings. The credit crunch has been especially harsh for minority communities hit disproportionately by foreclosures. In fact, only 131,000 Black families obtained mortgages in 2012, compared with nearly 600,000 in 2005 before the crisis, according to the Urban Institute Center for Housing Finance Policy. And overall, the share of Black borrowers dropped from 8 percent to 4.8 percent over the overall mar-

ket in that time, and Hispanic borrowers dropped from 13.3 percent of purchases to 8.6 percent. As written, JohnsonCrapo does not address these underlying structural concerns to the housing finance market. And per reporting by the Washington Times, some Democrats on the Banking Committee realize that fact, as they’ve asked to revise the legislation to add mandates that would require private lenders to offer loans to Hispanics, Blacks and other disadvantaged groups. The fact that these requests have been met with resistance is troubling. At best, this legislation would preserve a status quo that keeps the dream of homeownership out of the grasp of countless middle- and lower-income African American families. That’s not a real reform effort – it’s an affront to the taxpayers who supported Fannie and Freddie, and who are looking for leadership from Congress to give them an honest shot at pursuing the dream of American homeownership.

RESPECT From page 2A formulating an opinion on who we are by how we speak about or engage with others. Even if you have good cause, don’t be disrespectful because those who are younger than you may choose to model that when they meet with others and have difficulties. Or even worse your attitude my lead to gossip, which could keep you from getting ahead. Respect the dreams of others! If you are fortunate enough to have another person share his or her dreams with you, be considerate of that. It is a big deal. Do not tear them down or hate on them. It’s their dream, not yours, so respect that. It was placed in their heart or mind, not yours, so you don’t have to understand it. Think about how you can be an encourager, even if you’re not a contributor, in helping them reach success. Then when it is your turn, they may be the very person who helps to uplift you. Some people find it hard to respect others because in reality they do not even respect themselves. All over the media we see children being disrespectful to their parents, men disrespecting women, women disrespecting men, people disrespecting all sorts of authority and lots of people disrespecting themselves! When a person does not value them self, they will easily disrespect others. If one does not see them self worthy of much, that lack of self-worth will allow them to accept disrespect from others. It is challenging to try and get someone who doesn’t respect them self to respect someone else. When we have positive regard for ourselves we treat ourselves well. We don’t allow people to walk over us. We honor our time and make sure that those around us do too. We understand respect, because we respect ourselves and therefore know what it takes to respect other people. If you lack wisdom and understanding on how to begin to be a person of your word who has a healthy sense of self worth and shows consideration for others, where can you start? Begin to make conscious decisions at the individual level. Each person can do their part. First, make a decision to respect yourself – your time, your life, your body, your very being. You are a very special person, there is not another person exactly like you on this earth. Even twins do not share the same finger prints. Love yourself and see your value and worth. Don’t allow others to disrespect you – once you learn to respect yourself, you won’t accept disrespect. Respect others. I know that we often say that respect is earned and not given, but if you at least respect others as people, as human beings, the probability of receiving some respect back is much higher than if you approach them disrespectfully. In a nutshell, it goes back to the Golden Rule: Treat others the way that that you would like to be treated. If we each do our part, first respecting ourselves and then respecting others, we will set an example to our young people and can begin to see a positive, lasting change.

The student drives their own car to learn its handling limits and how to control their car in unexpected situations. Trained SBR members ride with the students to coach them through the various driving exercises. The goals of the Tire Rack Street Survival program are to teach students some of the basics of car control and to improve their competence as drivers. The student learns to understand how their actions govern a car’s response, and as a result become safer, more effective drivers on the road. The Porsche Club of America, Santa Barbara Region will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary on July 19th starting with a great drive through the Santa Ynez Valley, and ending with driving back through downtown Santa Barbara to the Fess Parker Resort for their celebration. The club was chartered on June 15, 1964 by a group of about two dozen Porsche lovers and has grown into a car club of over 1200 members, primarily from Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. “The Santa Barbara Region is very active and conducts two breakfast meetings a month-one in Santa Barbara and one in Camarillo. In addition to one or two driving and social events each month. We frequently have over one hundred members participating in an event and it’s an amazing sight to see 45-50 Porsches traveling as a group on the back roads. Long lasting friendships have developed over the years amongst club members and we remain an active car club because of these friendships and our common passions,” said Doreen Pankow, President, (SBR). COLLEGES From page 5A campus, after recent incidents of students receiving hate mail and the posting of offensive fliers. Students must generally rank in the top 9% of their high school class and top 9% statewide to be admitted into one of the 10 UC campuses. At UCLA, only 16.3% of state students were admitted for the fall 2014 class, with African Americans

representing about 4.4% of those accepted. Last year, about half of admitted black students actually enrolled and administrators are hoping this time to increase that yield, said Youlonda CopelandMorgan, UCLA associate vice chancellor for enrollment management. BOOKS From page 5A called for modern depictions of Native Americans in literature. In a survey of 2,000 educations by the literacy non-profit, First Book, 90 percent “agreed that the children in their programs would be more enthusiastic readers if they had access to books with characters, stories and images that reflect their lives and their neighborhoods.” GAINES From page 6A According to LLS, more than 12,000 patients in the U.S are diagnosed with blood cancers such as leukemia each year. For many, a marrow transplant from an unrelated donor is their only hope for a cure. “About 70% of patients in need of a bone marrow transplant do not have a matching donor in their family,” Gaines said. “These people depend on organizations like Be the Match to receive the transplants they need.” Among the many children diagnosed with Leukemia are local LLS Girl and Boy of the Year Emily Love and Garrett Heisinger. Both were diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at a very young age. “Unfortunately, leukemia continues to be the primary cancer responsible for deaths in children under the age of 20,” Gaines said. “That is why I am proud to partner with Emily and Garrett and to champion their cause.” “ACR 122 is will increase awareness about Bone Marrow donor registration,” Gaines said, “as well as the extreme need for donors with minority backgrounds.” KAISER From page 6A families, reverse cuts in patient services, proper nurse staffing of hospital units, and rolling back huge premium increases and copays. Kaiser increased its excess reserve, or tangible net equity, by $8.8 billion in 2013, according to state records. The latest filings show $21.68 billion in “TNE Excess.” In January Kaiser raised premium rates for individual policyholders by as much as 22 percent and for small business policyholders by as much as 56 percent. The health insurance rate review and regulation ballot measure on November’s ballot will allow for refunds if consumers have paid excessive rates since November 2012 and requires future rate hikes and benefit cuts to be justified. The initiative allows the state to return excessive reserves to policyholders in the form of lower premiums. FREED From page 7A Anderson walked out of the courtroom with his wife and 3-year-old daughter on one arm and his mom on the other. Before being driven away to a freedom celebration at an undisclosed spot, Anderson told reporters he was “very happy. My faith has always been in God. I’m just so thankful. Thank God for everything.” Missouri assistant Attorney General Michael Spillane told Brown the court should consider the seriousness of Anderson’s crime, “but also Anderson’s behavior over the 13 years of his freedom and the impact that imprisonment would have on his family.” The judge said rather than Anderson being granted parole, he would get credit for the 4,794 days between when he was convicted and when he was arrested last year. CAMPFIELD From page 7A issues in public schools. The next year, he drew fire after telling a satellite radio host that HIV and AIDS originated from a man having sex with a monkey and that it was nearly “impossible” for AIDS to be contracted through heterosexual sex. GOVERNOR From page 7A Obama said the botched execution in Oklahoma raised questions about the death penalty in the United States and that he would ask the U.S. attorney general to look into the situation. The head of Oklahoma’s Department of Corrections requested a stay of all executions in the state until a study has been completed to find out what went wrong and new procedures have been put in place. UNBANKED From page 8A Research Group, World Bank,

mentioned a World Bank project in Indonesia with migrant workers who frequently send money to family members. Staffers divided training about cost-effective remittance methods into three separate audiences: the workers themselves; the recipients; and the two groups being trained together. Interestingly, families who learned together had a much higher retention of information and made wiser choices than those who were taught individually. Bottom line: Tremendous technological advances are being made around personal financial management. Our challenge is to find ways to bring those tools – and basic financial services – to vast populations of underserved individuals. A parallel challenge is to continue developing and distributing financial education materials that enable children and adults to understand how to manage their money.

VAPOR From page 8A overall cigarette sales, usage of the smoking alternative is growing at exceptional rates. Therefore, investors are expecting a boom in the fledgling sect of the cigarette industry. Balsiger agreed that investors would do well to get in on the ground floor, citing growth of 300 percent in the vapor market, with sales reaching $10 billion in the next five years. “Our goal at Icon Vapor is to help you tap into the $800 billion dollar opportunity that is currently owned by big tobacco,” he says. “The time is right, and the vapor market is exploding.” It would follow that if you choose to invest in the vapor cigarette boom, you’d be making a wise choice. Should you choose Icon Vapor, you’d be making an even wiser one. For more information, visit www.iconvapor.com. HOME From page 8A It’s easy to jump online and look at homes for sale and run mortgage calculators to see what you can afford, but until you talk to a real estate professional and learn what your home is likely worth, you won’t have the information you need to make a decision. Together, you can run the numbers -- how much you can clear, how much you need to spend to make your home market-ready, and how much you’d have available to put down on your next home. WORKOUT From page 9A thirst. So quite often, when you feel hunger, it may just be your body needing a drink. But not all water is the same. Some, like Alkame Water, has benefits that tap and other bottled waters simply do not. Think of it this way: in order for your body to function properly, it must continuously work to maintain a proper pH, or chemical balance. An unbalanced pH can force your body to borrow important minerals from your vital organs and bones in order to remove exess acid, according to Dr. Theodore A. Baroody. By using a mildly alkaline water such as Alkame, which counters the acidity in the body, you have a better chance of pre-empting sickness, premature aging, weak bones and fatigue. Another benefit of drinking alkaline water is that it is infused with high levels of stabilized, dissolved oxygen, which is not only good for overall health, but improves aerobic capacity and enhances energy and overall vitality. Alkame Water, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Alkame Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALKM). For more information about Alkame Water and its benefits, visit www.alkamewater.com. WORKERS From page 9A The average duration of unemployment for workers age 55 and older was about 51 weeks, the same as it was one year ago, Rix says. It was about 35 weeks for those under 55. Just under 10 million people were out of work in April, the BLS said. Of those, more than 35 percent had been out of a job for six months or more. Also worrisome was the decline in the labor force last month. It shrank by 806,000, the biggest drop in six months, in part because unemployed people stopped looking for work. People aren’t counted as unemployed if they give up their job search altogether. Also, fewer people entered the job market, the government said. RETIREMENT From page 9A hard whether you will still need the space. Even if your home is paid off, houses are expensive to heat and cool.

Also, look for ways whether your home can provide some income for you. Is it big enough to rent a room to a college student or another retired person? If any remodeling or updating needs to be done, do it while you are still working. 5. Lower your expectations. Sorry, but this is a reality many will face. You will not have your parents’ retirement, nor will you even have the one you were expecting 10 years ago. What you can realistically expect is to work longer, be forced to be creative about reducing housing expenses and ways to do the traveling you hope to, and accept the fact that your retirement may look very different than the one you dreamed about. BUNDY From page 11A Blacks. That’s clearly the source of the –what else can one say? –anguish strikingly evident in Donald Sterling’s taped comments at having to acknowledge that Black men exist on their own without his permission. But Egan’s accurate assessment of the Bundy mob also recalls another moment a halfcentury ago, when a similar band of “armed thugs” gathered to mount an insurrection against the federal government’s enforcing the law. That was the firefight more than 2,000 violent White extremists staged the night of Sept. 30, 1962 at Oxford, Miss. to try to kill James Meredith and the small force of federal marshals guarding him as he prepared to make good on his enrollment in the University of Mississippi. The insurrection – the most violent action against the federal government since the Civil War—lasted all night. Two civilians were killed and 160 federal marshals were wounded. Meredith and the federal officers were saved only when President Kennedy ordered a small unit of the Mississippi National Guard and paratroopers from the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division to occupy the campus. What would have happened at the Bundy ranch if federal officials had not kept their cool and let the armed thugs goad them into a gun battle? The Oxford insurrection—and the entire history of the South’s Jim Crow regime—illustrates what happens when so-called respectable conservatives let the “armed thugs” faction of White America into their tent. When is today’s conservative movement going to accept that lesson? Lee A. Daniels is a longtime journalist based in New York City. His latest book is Last Chance: The Political Threat to Black America. FANNIE MAE From page 11A The only meaningful reform is one that serves all Americans – especially those who have been locked out of homeownership through no fault of their own. Preserving and strengthening Fannie and Freddie only expands opportunity and brings more qualified borrowers into the system. It’s a goal that makes sense for borrowers and lenders, builders and brokers, and hard-hit communities looking to come back from a foreclosure nightmare. What’s more, broadening access to homeownership, by encouraging the responsible use of credit, is an important step for driving entrepreneurship – one of the nation’s economic engines, and one the administration has dedicated ample resources to jumpstarting. When used properly, the mortgage financing process via Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac was a beautiful and productive transaction. As a former real estate broker, let me say that if you follow the rules to the program things were locked tight and guaranteed to work. What happened is that more than a few banks and Wall Street decided to stretch the rules or just break them down right. Sooner or later the “jig” was going to be exposed and the bottom fell out. Tragedy came to many home owners who were persuaded to take these subprime mortgage packages. They have paid the price severely. Let’s not close the book and kill off Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It works if done properly. Let’s clean up the mess and begin to once again do it right. The intent should be to safe guard the process. Years after the financial crash, our elected leaders surely know they have one chance to get housing reform right. Doing so requires fidelity to two broad principles: expanding opportunity, and ensuring stability of the markets. Johnson-Crapo fails to meet both of these goals, and moving forward with this ill-conceived bill would risk doing more harm than good. Harry C.

SOTOMAYOR From page 11A never have absent that policy.” We may have lost this battle for affirmative action, but as long as there are voices as clear and strong as Sonia Sotomayor’s on the Supreme Court, we are confident that in the end, equal opportunity, equal protection and equal justice will prevail. Nonetheless, six other justices clearly demonstrated that our fight for civil rights is still not over – even in 21st century America. It is an unfortunate commentary on the direction of our nation when the highest court of our land determines that it is acceptable to consider factors that have seldom – if ever – been used as a basis for discrimination, such as legacy, athletics and geography in admissions, but not race. As Justice Sotomayor reminded her colleagues, “As members of the judiciary tasked with intervening to carry out the guarantee of equal protection, we ought not sit back and wish away, rather than confront, the racial inequality that exists in our society.” Marc H.

Gideon bibles are now in hotels, schools, universities, military bases, hospitals, convalescent homes, and communities in 197 countries in 45 different languages. Last fiscal year 87 million bibles and testaments were distributed worldwide. The program concluded with Ralph Nichols, the Camp Chaplain, leading the group in prayer and scripture. Ralph discussed the Gideon “Card” program. The program allows people to dedicate bibles through tax deductible monetary contribution, on behalf of individuals, churches, community groups etc…. Mr. Nichols explained that the funds generated through donations allow worldwide distribution of God’s word. Ralph fondly recalled that at one time, all U.S. soldiers received a Gideon bible when they enlisted.

Entertainment News Two Black Designers Snag Major Honors

By Julee Wilson Last week, New York City's Pratt Institute closed the doors on its highly successful "Black Dress: Ten Contemporary Fashion Designers" exhibit, which ran for 11 weeks and spotlighted the contributions and creations of black designers. While the show has been shuttered, that certainly doesn't mean the celebration of those talented individuals has ended. In fact, two of the fashion designers included in the exhibit, Stephen Burrows and Byron Lars, were honored at the 2014 Pratt Institute Fashion Show and Cocktail Benefit. The annual event is an opportunity for the fine arts school to showcase designs from its graduating class and hand out its most prestigious awards. This year, Pratt's Fashion Award for Lifetime Achievement went to Burrows, a designer whose work spans more than 50 years and whose creations have been worn by Michelle Obama, Kate Moss, Diana Ross and many more. Lest we forget, this is also the man that put Iman in her first pair of high heels.

Byron Lars, with actor Angela Bassett, was one of two designers honored by Pratt University at its annual fashion show. But it was another icon- was on hand to present him ic supermodel and a close with the Pratt award. friend of Burrows, Pat Thomas F.

Gabourey Sidibe's Speech on Confidence is Incredibly Moving

By Stephanie Marcus We're just going to say it: Gabourey Sidibe is awesome. She's made to put up with a lot, but she doesn't let the haters get her down. Not anymore. Once again, the 30-year-old actress proved why she's one of the strongest women in Hollywood with a powerful and moving speech about confidence at the Gloria Awards and Gala in New York City on May 1. Sidibe opened by declaring that she loathes questions about the source of her confidence.

Gabourey Sidibe "I hate that," Sidibe told the crowd. "I always wonder if that's the first thing they ask Rihanna when they meet her. 'RiRi! How are you so confident?' Nope. No. No. But me? They ask me with that

same incredulous disbelief every single time. 'You seem so confident! How is that?'" The former "American Horror Story" star went on to say that every day she went to school, people made fun of her, and that she had to go home to a place where everyone made fun of her as well. But when she moved in with her aunt, Dorothy Pitman Hughes, whom she described as a "feminist, an activist, and a lifelong friend of Gloria Steinem," a portrait of her aunt and Steinem together gave her hope and strength.

Amma Asante Rachel Portman ("Chocolat"), the costumes were conceived by a woman and it was edited by women. Asante points out that for women and minorities, landing quality jobs is difficult in the U.K., just as it is in America, since most producers envision a director that "doesn't come in my shape or color," she says. Having only one film under her belt didn't help her cause, either. (Her directorial debut, the BAFTA award-winning "A Way of Life," was released

in 2004.) "But I've at least arrived at an age group that appears appropriate," laughs the 44-year-old in a recent phone interview from New York. Now, Asante is determined to get other ladies in the door. "My stories are about women so why not have women help make them?" “Belle” weaves in the historical 1781 Zong Massacre, in which 142 enslaved Africans were drowned in the Caribbean by the crew of the British slave ship Zong. The slave owners made an insurance claim for the loss of the slaves, which was challenged by the insurers and wound up in the British courts. The chief justice ultimately deciding the case was Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson), Dido’s great uncle with whom she lived after her Royal Navy admiral father sets sail for the Indies. Mansfield ruled in favor of the insurers and his verdict led to the end of the British slave trade in 1807. In the film, Dido influences Lord Mansfield’s decision.

British Director Amma Asante Talks 'Belle' & Diversity in Film

By Jessica Herndon LOS ANGELES — British director Amma Asante knows how hard it is to get a costume drama off the ground — especially when it stars a black female newcomer and is directed by a black female with only one previous film to her credit. But for the 18th centuryset "Belle," Asante fought for diversity and the feminine eye in front of and behind the camera. "We need a variety of lenses in which to tell these stories," she says. "Being in a strong position where you can make the decisions ... I have a responsibility to open up those opportunities." Based on real events, "Belle" tells the story of a mixed-race woman, Dido Elizabeth Belle, who was raised in British aristocracy at a time when such a thing was unheard of. It not only stars English newbie Gugu Mbatha-Raw in the title role, but it was penned by black British writer Misan Sagay ("Their Eyes Were Watching God"), scored by

2014 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival:

Talent Through the Generations

By Chevel Johnson NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is filled with artists who have handed down their knowhow and love for their craft to their children. At the festival, Charmaine Neville and her band shook the Blues Tent with a rendition of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" and The Temptations' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone," with help from her son, Damion on vocals, and her father, Charles Neville on saxophone. They're not the only Nevilles playing this year's festival. Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk played Sunday and includes another cousin, Ian Neville on guitar. Their family is just one example of how the music has flowed from one generation to the next and how the festival, by showcasing them, continues the city's musical heritage. "I'm 32 for 32 on Jazz Fest," said Ian Neville, the 32-year-old son of Art Neville. "I've played at about half or more. I think that's a pretty good record."

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that the District Attorney's Consumer Fraud Unit filed a felony complaint against Moorpark residents Sokthaly Luong, Sokpuy Luong and Peou Ou for conspiracy, perjury, computer access fraud, forgery and grand theft. The felony complaint alleges that between April 5, 2010, and April 24, 2014, the defendants conspired to forge or alter lottery tickets by engaging in "pinning," which involves scratching off the laminate on the front of a California State Lottery Scratcher ticket to reveal the VIRN (void if removed number). Once the number is revealed, the retailer can check the pinned ticket by using a California State Lottery Altura Terminal to determine if the Scratcher is a winner or loser. The defendants are alleged to have knowingly sold pinned losing tickets to consumers at Donut Queen in Simi Valley. The defendants are additionally alleged to have taken pinned winning tickets and fraudulently collected for themselves cash prizes and reimbursements from the California State Lottery. An early disposition conference is scheduled for June 10, 2014, at 1 :30 p.m. in courtroom 12 of the Ventura County Superior Court. Individuals who believe they have been victimized by Donut Queen, or others working with the defendants, are encouraged to contact the Ventura County District Attorney's Office at (805) 662-1750 to file a complaint.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On May 7, officers responded to a family argument involving a firearm in the 100 block of Cordova Street. Witnesses told officers that Jorge Ortiz, 25-year old Oxnard resident, pulled a gun and pointed it at his sister, Sandra Ortiz. He then fired a round into the ceiling and fled. Responding officers saw Ortiz run into a neighbor's yard and onto the roof of that residence. Ortiz subsequently fled into a residence in the 100 block of Alpine Street. The family in that home was in fear and notified officers. This family was evacuated from the home. Ortiz remained inside the bathroom of that residence as officers ordered him out over a police car loudspeaker. After about fifteen minutes, Ortiz walked out of the home and surrendered to the officers. Ortiz was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm, brandishing a firearm, and outstanding felony warrants. Persons with additional information may call the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7740, the Violent Crimes Hotline (805) 982-7070, or the Ventura County Crime Stoppers, (800) 222-8477 and www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org/contactus.aspx to submit a tip via test or e-mail.

From page 1A black families and their children grow up with an ethnic minority viewpoint. The black college tour seeks to educate families and their children about the abundant choices that exist among 140 historically black colleges in the Midwest, the East and the South. “You find them everywhere in the South and East,” Irene noted. “Historically, they started there because most black slaves weren’t allowed to get an education. When the slaves were freed, they needed an education to sustain themselves. The establishment as well as the African-Americans in the community started the land grants for black colleges, and each one had their own special niche.” For the kids on tour, the exposure to black education and culture within a black community can be a shock. “When you’ve been in the situation where you’ve been a minority, and you go to one where you’re the majority, it’s a different feeling all together,” said Irene. “They’re also exposed to their own history. And once you talk about a college, they are impressed that the college is actually in the community where the community lives and the community supports the college.” Even more important, students come face-to-face with successful educators and business leaders who serve as role models in the black community. “They meet and listen to other black leaders who are successful,” Irene added, “and see that there are numerous opportunities for successful blacks in positions of power within black universities.”

For 15-year-old Louis Clark, a freshman at Santa Clara High School, getting to see how black students can be successful was a highlight of the tour. “I was impressed with how you could take a bunch of kids to some colleges to show us that we are going to go to college,” he said. “I learned that we can go to college and we will succeed in our lives.” Furthermore, Clark was impressed with the communities where black colleges existed. “The colleges are very family oriented,” he said. “They stick together, have a good time, and still get their work done.” 17-year-old Mychael Hill, a junior at Channel Islands High School, was most taken by the abundant history and tradition of historical black colleges. “We had our eyes opened a lot

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court.

Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property.

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.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of ZARA FLETCHER A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Carolyn Katzin in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Carolyn Katzin 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 May 28, 2014 at 9:00 AM in Dept. No. J6 located at 4353 E. Vineyard, Oxnard, CA 93036. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal

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

The Sound Effect band prides themselves in their trueness to live music. All instruments are played live and they never use pre-recorded background tracks at any live performances. This gives them the ability to change the feel of songs as they feel the need to which in turn keeps them fresh and energetic on stage. The fact that the core 4 members of the group have been together for over 11 years makes this possible. Having performed together for so many years also gives them the tightness that distinguishes them from any other group. Besides their unmistakeable talent, they enjoy themselves on stage so much that the feeling is contagious. Their fans become more like family and the vibe they give off becomes their own.
