For your dream to live never look at the door out. Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan I think one of the biggest hindrances to our joy, peace, health, wealth, and peace are the choices we make. Most choices we make or are motivated and instigated by our past. Too improve in our choices. We have to change our thinking. But our thinking is influenced from our thoughts from yesterday. Thoughts from yesterday put us where we are today. A lot of the bad habits we have today we learned. They began with the environment of our home as a child. To be successful we have to overcome the past. Sometimes knowing where you came from helps us, know how to move forward. Most of our childhood environment fit into one of

the six categories 1) Over controlling environment-If you lived in a controlling home, you never learn to make decisions for yourself. And this will affect you today because you will hesitant to take personal responsibility, for your life. It’ll be easy for you today to avoid anything that requires taking on much responsibility. 2) A fear-based environment- People who grow up in fear generally are afraid to try anything new they think it might result in failure. They’re afraid to fail. So they don’t even try anything. They are great at making excuse why they can’t, but the real reason is fear. 3) INSECURE –ENVIORMENT—This person learns to worry about not having enough they spend their lives trying to gain security and never learn to take risk. Growing up they heard a lot of voice say what “they can’t afford and how bad things are”. 4) An abusive environment- People who grew up in an abusive environment, sexual, verbal, emotional etc. Generally have self-worth issues and a lot Paid Advertisement

of times these people become “self-abusive” they become their own abuser and squander everything they gain. 5) A performancebased environment-If you grew up in an environment where you had to perform in order to get attention, or love. Then today you will be what is called a people pleaser. This person will always try to please others because they are you’re fighting the rejection of the past. These people never take risk because they’re afraid that if they fail they will not be love and generally they never speak to their mind, they say yes when they want to say no, and they say no when want to say yes. 6) Too much responsibility, too early-Generally, these are people who were forced to become responsible for others at too early of an age. They grow up without their childhood. Growing up they either had to take care of, a sibling or maybe take care of a parent because the parent was emotionally immature or an attic of some- sort. People who generally grow DREAM, See page 12A

By Inez Lanns Lately I have been hearing the word unity and the messages of support all around me. It is unfortunate that it often takes a negative event, or series of them, to cause people to start rallying for unity and support. When this does happen, however the circumstances come about, eyes are opened and action can be taken. As individuals we can accomplish some things, but a group can accomplish more work faster. The truth is we are a stronger force when we are united. When it comes to unity are you trying to jump on

the bandwagon? Or do you really participate in the movement? Do you want it but are unsure how to be a part of it? Unity means the state of being one; oneness; absence of diversity; unvaried or uniform character; oneness of mind feeling, etc., as among a number of persons, concord, harmony or agreement (dictionary.com). How can we unite when we are all so different? Although we are unique, we have some things that bring us together and connect us. It could be children, a love for sports, working in the same workplace, having similar likes and interests, knowing some of the same people, shopping in the same places or eating at the same restaurants, and the list goes on. If nothing else, we all would like to feel safe, be at peace and desire opportunities to prosper. If we would communicate with each other – not just talk, but also listen – we would find that we are more alike than different.

As for support…many of us have projects that we work on or things that we are passionate about, but I have found that so many people desire support but do not desire or know how to give support. When we support each other, that does not mean you’re coming out to help me with what I am doing, but I don’t ever support what is a priority in your life. Support can come in many different forms. It could be your physical presence and attendance. If you cannot be there, it can also possibly be financial support. And if you cannot do either of those, sharing the event or project can be a big source of support. Sometimes that kind of support can be worth more than the first two examples. However, if you can do all 3 things that is a display of optimal support that would greatly benefit the receiving party. We don’t have to go out and do something major and public in order to unite.

A new report titled “Temporary Food Facilities in Ventura County” has just been published by the 2013-2014 Ventura County Grand Jury on its website, http://grandjury. countyofventura.org. The Grand Jury investigated methods for providing inspections and permits for temporary food facilities, known as TFFs, based on an Environmental Health Division (EHD) report presented to county supervisors in May last year. The purpose of the Temporary Food Facilities Program is to regulate food operations at community events and certified farmers’ markets throughout Ventura County. The EHD evaluates such events to see if they meet the California Retail Food Code’s definition of a “commu-

nity event,” then ensures that all required paperwork is submitted and that all food vendors are prepared to serve food in a safe and sanitary manner. The EHD offers a monthly TFF class that aims to reduce chances of food-borne illnesses. Event organizers and foodtruck operators who take this class receive waivers or reductions of permit fees. In the past five years, the public’s desire to attend fun, family-oriented events—a lower cost alternative to vacations—has increased. This increase has not been met with an increase in the number of EHD staff to inspect TFFs. The insufficient number of inspectors led to eliminating inspections of TFFType 2 operators—those who sell prepackaged, less hazardous foods.

The Grand Jury interviewed EHD staff and County Fair operators, attended an EHD food-handling class and a food truck start-up and event organizer seminar and researched newspaper articles and various websites to obtain a more thorough knowledge of the county’s Temporary Food Facilities Program. Among other conclusions, the Grand Jury found that: • Waived or reduced fees have amounted to annual program losses of about a quarter of a million dollars; • The EHD has created a condition for possible safety hazards by eliminating inspections of TFFType 2 operators; • Current food-handling classes are not making operators more compliant with TRUCK, See page 12A

As tens of thousands of Black Californians face IRS penalties for failing to secure health insurance, a new spotlight is turned on shortcomings in AfricanAmerican outreach. By McKenzie Jackson California Black Media Contributor Ronail “Stretch” Shelton is about to be a little lighter in the pockets. A resident of Los Angeles’ Koreatown section, Shelton is among an estimated 70,000 AfricanAmerican Californians expected to be penalized by the Internal Revenue Service for failing to have health insurance. Although he is one of the millions of uninsured Americans, Shelton did not enroll in benefits through the Affordable Care Act — commonly known as Obamacare. His failure to obtain health care coverage means the 31-year-old personal trainer is due to be fined $95 or one percent of his household income. Despite heavy publicity and a deadline extension provided by Covered California (the state’s healthcare exchange), Shelton was still trying to enroll after the final April 15 deadline. A few days after that, he was scrambling to mail personal information to Covered California, but the effort was in vain. “I talked

up for health coverage through Obamacare. Statewide, 265,000 Latinos, 194,000 whites, and 83,000 Asians enrolled between October 1 and March 31. Also, six percent of the Medi-Cal enrollees are African-American, the second lowest percentage among all ethnic groups. Thirty-eight percent of new Medi-Cal enrollees are Latino, 27 percent are white, 17 percent are Asian, and nine percent self-identified as “other.” To many, these numbers are simply unacceptable. California Assemblymem-

to someone on [April 15],” he said. “They said I could try to still send something in. That day, their server or something went down.” He blamed his lack of health coverage on not knowing where to go. Still, the pending fine was news to him. “I didn’t know anything about it until you mentioned it,” Shelton said when asked to discuss his plan to pay the penalty. “Obviously, I don’t want to have to pay it.” Overall, California African-American non-enrollees who were eligible for subsidy who did not sign-

up by April 15 will reach fines well over $ 7.5 million for not obtaining health care through Covered California, Medi-Cal or some through other means. In an April 17 press release, Covered California said more than three million Californians enrolled in health insurance plans or Medi-Cal by the cutoff date. The organization also said it “has met the base projection for AfricanAmerican enrollment.” According to figures released by Covered California, only 21,974 eligible black Californians signed

ber Cheryl Brown said she and other members of the California Legislative Black Caucus believe the target of 22,000 black enrollees was far too low — especially in light of the fact that blacks are six percent of the population in a state that had an estimated seven million uninsured residents prior to Obamacare. “While they were close to their initial projection, clearly their outreach to the African-American community needed to have sufficient funding to achieve larger participation and enrollment,” said Brown,

Sports News Pacers' Paul George Heckled at 'Magic Johnson is Bigger Than That' His Own Stadium

Charles Barkley: By Michael Klopman Charles Barkley expressed disappointment with Magic Johnson over his gleeful reaction to the news that Mike D’Antoni would resign as the coach of the Lakers.. “Magic Johnson is bigger than that. Mike D”Antoni is a good coach. They didn’t give him a lot to work with,” Barkley said on TNT, via Mark Medina of the LA Daily News. “The Lakers weren’t to win with Phil Jackson either. They don’t have good players. We know Phil Jackson is arguably the greatest coach ever. The Lakers don’t have players. They’re not a good team. I don’t even know if Phil Jackson wanted that job. The Lakers stink and they’re going to stink.”

Irving ‘Magic’ Johnson and Charles Barkley Shortly after news broke of D’Antoni’s exit, Magic rejoiced on Twitter posting: “Happy days are here again! Mike D’Antoni resigns as the Lakers coach. I couldn’t be happier!” Johnson didn’t shy away from criticizing Lak-

ers executive vice president Jim Buss for choosing D’Antoni over Phil Jackson back in 2012, after the short tenure of Mike Brown. The Lakers legend also took issue with D’Antoni’s system during his time in Los Angeles.

For anyone who thought it couldn't get any worse for the Indiana Pacers, it did when they were booed in their own stadium during Game 5 against the Atlanta Hawks. One fan made sure his voice was heard after All-Star Paul George committed a traveling violation in the final minute of the second quarter. "Why don’t you start playing some basketball and stop traveling? I guess you’re ready to go home in the first round!" the fan yelled as the rest of the crowd at Bankers Life Fieldhouse quieted down. "You’re ready to go home in the first round against Atlanta. You’re supposed to be an All-Star. Start playing ball and stop traveling." George ended up with game-highs of 26 points

Paul George and 12 rebounds to go along with six assists and six steals. But the Pacers still fell to the Hawks, 107-97. The top seed in the

Eastern conference, Indiana has now lost 12 of its last 20 games and is on he brink of being eliminated by the No. 8 seed.

Asafa Powell Banned for Doping Richard Sherman and NFL Players Discuss 'The Modern Black Male Athlete' at Harvard

Former world 100m record holder Asafa Powell has received an 18-month ban for failing a drugs test. The Jamaican sprinter, 31, took the banned stimulant oxilofrine at last year’s national championships but the suspension has been backdated and will end on December 20, 2014. Powell called the ruling “unfair and unjust”, and said a legal supplement he took, Epiphany D1, was contaminated. He plans to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Fellow sprinter Sherone Simpson was also banned by the Jamaican anti-doping disciplinary panel. Simpson, an Olym-

Asafa Powell pic 4x100m relay gold and silver medallist, is a training partner of Powell and took the same substance at the same event. The three-member disciplinary panel that ruled on

Powell said he had been “negligent”. In January, he testified that Canadian physical trainer Chris Xuereb provided him with nine Xuereb has denied providing performance-enhancing drugs.

Mavericks' Blair Suspended for One Game

DeJuan Blair New York - Dallas Mavericks big man DeJuan Blair was suspended for one game by the NBA for kicking San Antonio Spurs center Tiago Splitter in the head. Rod Thorn, NBA President of Basketball Operations announced the suspension a day after Blair was ejected in the fourth quarter of the Mavericks' 93-89 playoff loss to the Spurs. The victory saw the Spurs pull even in the bestof-seven first round series, which is tied at two games apiece. Blair is averaging 5.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in the postseason.

By Jimmy Golen Cambridge, Mass. — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he refuses to back down from his raging rant after the NFC championship game because he wants to "educate the uneducated." During a session called "The Modern Black Male Athlete" at Harvard, Sherman told a standing-room crowd that he tried to start a conversation about how blacks are viewed by the media and fans. He was called a thug — and worse — on social media because he was so emotional in his trash talk about San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree after the Seahawks beat the 49ers to reach the Super Bowl. Houston Texans run-

Richard Sherman ning back Arian Foster laughed, "If you call Richard Sherman a thug, you have never seen a thug." Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald and former Broncos cornerback Do-

monique Foxworth also attended the pair of talks. Foxworth, the former NFL players association president, is attending Harvard Business School.

Cleveland Browns Confirm They're Trying Out Vince Young at Quarterback

By Eric Edholm The Cleveland Browns are exhausting all their quarterback options and it has been fascinating to watch that process unfold. Having released Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden, and with Brian Hoyer coming off a torn ACL, the Browns need quarterbacks. Plural. They apparently are looking under every rock, including trying to see if Vince Young has anything left in the tank. Young and NFL journeyman Tyler Thigpen are among the players the Browns are bringing in for tryouts at their upcoming minicamps. Browns general manager Ray Farmer confirmed the news, relayed here by the Akron Beacon Journal. The Browns very well might draft a quarterback, and they have the ammo — three of the top 35 picks in the draft, including two first-rounders (Nos. 4 and 26 overall) — with which to do so. But they also appear intrigued with Young, who — this even surprised us — turns 31 in a few weeks. Young has been brought

Vince Young in as a camp competitor, most recently with the Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers when those teams were short on quarterbacks. But he has not thrown a pass in a regularseason game since Week 13 of the 2011 season with the Philadelphia Eagles — Young threw four picks that day in a 31-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Could Young keep his career alive? If there's a place to do it, it might as well be QB-starved Cleveland. But Farmer wasn't done talking about the quarterback possibilities at his his pre-draft presser. Asked

about Johnny Manziel, one of the quarterbacks the Browns have done a lot of homework on (especially with a workout and a meeting recently), Farmer seemed comfortable with who Manziel is as a person and as a player. Will the Browns sign Young? Will they draft Manziel? We should have the answers soon. But for us, the idea of both on the same roster makes our brains bend a little. But then again, it would be quite the talking-point QB direction for a team that has been mostly rudderless at the position for 20 years.

Union Bank, LAUSD Open First Student-Run Branches

By Alexandra Zaslow The students of REALM charter school in Berkeley, Calif., are putting their creativity to the test. In the past, the eighthgraders have had the opportunity to create laser-etched skateboards and build classrooms out of shipping containers, but this year they've decided to build their school's first library, Berkeleyside reported. "There were some students who said, 'We don't have a library period,'" Emily Pilloton, REALM's creativity director, told Yahoo's Good News blog. "But there were others who said, 'We don't have a place to explore. We don't have a place to relax. We don't have a place of discovery.'" So now the students are building that place -- their dream library -- through a program called Studio H. The program is an offshoot of Project H, a design education nonprofit that Pil-

Students of the REALM charter school in Berkeley build shelves for new library loton founded in 2008, according to Berkeleyside. They're calling the library "X-Space." "X" represents the unknown, which is a concept the students recently studied in their algebra class. The students conducted their research by going on field trips to several libraries and considering their design. They also drew up a budget and launched

a Kickstarter. In just one month, they raised almost $79,000 -- which was more than their goal of $75,000. They're hoping that the library will be unveiled this fall. "We made a library so people can chill and learn and work on their homework, or just hang out," Leilani Gil, an eighthgrader involved in the project, told Berkeleyside.

State News Jackson Bill to Encourage Affordable Congresswoman Lee Issues Statement Housing Passes Out of Committee on Raising the Minimum Wage

SACRAMENTO – A bill by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) to prohibit non-profit affordable housing projects from being charged certain fees or back taxes passed out of the Senate Governance and Finance Committee today. The vote was 5-0. Recognizing the need and public good behind affordable housing, California law exempts non-profit affordable housing developments from property taxes. But some local governments have required some affordable housing developments to agree to annual PILOT payments (payments in lieu of taxes), often equal to the amounts that would be required if they had been paying property taxes. Others have threatened to charge back taxes, often in the hun-

dreds of thousands of dollars, risking the loss of existing affordable housing. SB 1203 would prohibit PILOT agreements in the future, while leaving existing PILOT agreements in place. SB 1203 would also make it illegal to seek back taxes from affordable housing develop-

ments with existing PILOT agreements. “In so many parts of our state, including in my district, we are facing an affordable housing crisis where housing costs are out of reach for far too many families. It is even threatening the ability of businesses to recruit workers, “ said Jackson. “We should be doing all we can to encourage affordable housing. This bill will clarify the law and make it abundantly clear that these PILOT agreements are illegal and aren’t consistent with our goal of encouraging affordable housing.” The bill is supported by The Arc of Ventura County, the Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation, and the Western Center on Law and Poverty, among others. The bill now heads to the Senate floor.

Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) issued statement on raising the minimum wage: “On the eve of the U.S. Senate’s vote on legislation to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, I am proud of my home state, California, for leading the minimum wage movement by signing into law legislation last September that increases the state minimum wage from $8.00 per hour to $9.00, effective July 1, 2014. Effective January 1, 2016, the minimum wage in California will be $10.00 per hour. “In California, we understand that to re-build

Congresswoman Barbara Lee our economy and expand the middle class, we need to put more money into the

pockets of workers. “An increase of the federal minimum wage would bring our country one step closer to establishing a living wage, that would give hard-working Americans the dignity of a good standard of living to afford the basics while working one full time job. “As a member of the Appropriations and Budget Committees and the Chair of the Democratic Whip’s Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity, I will continue to fight for a increase in the minimum wage that will improve the quality of life for low-wage earning families and will lift our entire economy.”

Wilk Bill Passes Assembly Arts & Entertainment Committee

SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Scott Wilk’s, R- Santa Clarita, Child Performer Service Protection bill passed unanimously through the Assembly Arts & Entertainment Committee. “This important measure will preserve the integrity of professionals within the entertainment industry and solidify the safety of children that are pursuing their career in acting or modeling,” Wilk said. Service providers in the entertainment industry that work with children must apply for a Child Performer Services Permit. The application includes fingerprinting to check the applicant’s criminal

Assemblyman Scott Wilk history and to screen out any sex offenders. Permit holders are registered in a searchable online database. AB 1680 requires permit holders to display

their Child Performer Services Permit numbers on all advertising, including internet advertising. This practice will preserve the integrity of professionals that fall under the permit’s jurisdiction and solidify the safety of children starting their entertainment careers. “Adding an additional layer of security for children in the entertainment industry, AB 1680 will help both parents and children distinguish the safest routes to fulfill their dreams,” said Wilk. The 38th Assembly District encompasses Simi Valley, the northern section of the San Fernando Valley and most of the Santa Clarita Valley.

National News NUL President Morial Joins Rush Limbaugh Randomly Attacks Gun-Control Advocacy Group Don Lemon for Being Gay By James Wright National Urban League President Marc Morial has joined a new gun-control advocacy organization that aims to galvanize Americans to end gun violence. Everytown for Gun Safety, founded with the support of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, was formed to counter powerful pro-gun lobbyists on Capitol Hill. Morial, a former mayor of New Orleans, is familiar with the pain and destruction that gun violence can cause. “Gun violence has often primarily been associated with poor, urban neighborhoods,” Morial said. “But the truth is that gun violence can and does happen everywhere. The common denominator is easy access to guns.” Bloomberg, who has been a force in the Mayors

National Urban League President Marc H. Morial against Illegal Guns organization and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, has committed $50 million to help the organization, which also has the support of billionaire business magnate Warren Buffett. Morial points out that gun violence kills 86 Americans daily and “yet

the U.S. Congress has failed to enact legislation requiring comprehensive gun background checks, despite overwhelmingly public support.” “In an effort to press for change in Washington and move beyond Congress to bring commonsense gun policies to state capitols, corporate boards and state and federal elections, Everytown’s supporters will back candidates and legislation aimed at saving lives and raise awareness around urgent gun safety issues,” Morial said. Morial, who will serve on Everytown’s advisory board with Bloomberg and Buffett, said that fighting gun violence has long been a part of his public life. “This is a fight to which I have been committed — whether being the first U.S. MORIAL, See page 12A

Wrongfully Convicted Man Files Suit Against City

By Michael McGee “My life has been in upheaval for five years.” The Dallas Examiner first published Finding Normal After Not Guilty Verdict in June 2013. The article described the story of Reggie Ruffin who stated he was arrested in 2009 and 2010 for unrelated violent felonies. After many court dates and repeated claims by Ruffin of his innocence and improper investigations by the authorities, he was found not guilty of all charges in two separate jury trials. Recently, Ruffin has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city, the police and the offices of the mayor and district attorney for what he claims was malicious prosecution. He filed case number 3:2014cv00046 in January in the U. S. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit Court, Texas Northern District.

Reggie Ruffin (Photo Courtesy: Michael McGee) Through Ruffin v. District Attorney’s Office et al, he maintains that the arrests and subsequent prosecutions left him in economic ruin due to legal fees and time lost from work, despite evidence throughout the investigations that, claim Ruffin and attorney Kevin Kurtz, indicated the felony charges had no merit.

Leonore Draper was found shot inside her car outside her home in the city's West Pullman neighborhood. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that about an hour before her death, Draper, who worked as a budget analyst for Chicago Public Schools, had attended a fundraiser she helped organize for Project Orange Tree.

$90 Million-Plus Lost to Foreclosure Scams

Help Your Mom Get Organized for Mother’s Day By Jason Alderman Mother’s Day is May 11. If you’re wracking your brain for ways to show your mom appreciation for all the sacrifices she made while raising you, here’s a thought: Why not offer to spend some time helping to sort through her financial, legal and medical paperwork to make sure everything is in order? While flowers and candy offer immediate gratification, I’ll bet your mom will truly appreciate the long-term value of getting her records in order now so that she – and you – will be able to take appropriate actions later on, should the need arise. Some of the areas you might want to organize include: Retirement income sources. Gather these documents so your mom will have a better idea how much income she’ll have available throughout retirement: • Register your mom at mySocialSecurity (www. socialsecurity.gov/myaccount) to gain access to personalized estimates of retirement, disability and survivors benefits, lifetime earnings records and estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes paid.

• You’ll also need your dad’s statement to determine any potential spousal or survivor benefits for which she might be eligible, so sign him up as well. • Annual statements for pension, IRA, 401(k) or other retirement savings plans for which she’s eligible. (Check your dad’s statements too in case she’s eligible for spousal death benefits.) • Bank statements for checking, savings, money market and CD accounts. • Company stock and bond certificates, and statements for other investment accounts. Outstanding debts. Also gather monthly statements and outstanding balances owed for major expenses including: home mortgage or other property loans, home equity loan or line of credit, car loan or lease, credit cards, medical bills and personal loans. Other important documents. Your mom should have documents instructing how she’d like her affairs to be handled, both while she’s living and after death. Look for: • Medical, homeowner/ renter, auto, life, disability and long-term care insurance policies.

• A will (and possibly a trust) outlining how she wants her estate managed after death. • Durable power of attorney and health care proxy specifying who will make her financial and medical decisions if she becomes incapacitated. • Also, a living will tells doctors which medical treatments and life-support procedures she does or doesn’t want performed. • Birth certificate, marriage license, Social Security card, funeral plans, safe deposit box information, etc. • Contact information for professional service providers (doctors, pharmacy, lawyer, financial advisor, bank, insurance companies, etc.) Also give these providers your own contact information in case of emergencies. Review these documents regularly and make updates whenever her situation changes. For example, make sure that designated beneficiaries for your mom’s will, life insurance MOM, See page 12A

Four Tips for Starting Your Own Home-Based Business

Dreaming of launching a business from your home? You’ll join an evergrowing number of entrepreneurs, according to a broad new report based on 6,000 surveys. Sixty-nine percent of all U.S. businesses start in the home and half of them are still home-based long after

they launch, according to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor report. “The median start-up cost was $15,000 but remember, that’s the median – it means plenty of people spend much less than that,” says Renae Christine, a serial entrepreneur who has created dozens of success-

ful home-based businesses for herself and others. She shares practical how-to advice in her new book, “Home Business Startup Bible,” (www.richmombusiness.com). If you’re thinking about starting a home-based business, she shares some tips for laying the groundwork. • It all starts with an idea – is yours a good one? You need to be able to easily explain your idea (product or service) in one or two sentences because that’s all you’ll get to “sell” it to customers, investors and the media, including bloggers who you seek out for reviews. If you can’t explain it well in two sentences, either work on a simpler way to describe it or come up with a new idea. • Determine whether your idea has been done before or if it’s brand new. There are generally three possibilities: It has been done but there’s still demand; it has been done and the market is saturated; or it has never been done. You can be successful in any of these scenarios, if you know where your idea falls and strategize appropriately. • Create a list of all the things you need to plan for in your business. The list might be a series of questions whose answers will be the basis for BUSINESS, See page 12A

By Charlene Crowell Earlier this month, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette charged an organization known as Freedom by Faith Ministries with defrauding more than 100 consumers in Southeast Michigan. The alleged crime: foreclosure rescue scams. Unfortunately, the circumstances that led to the Michigan lawsuit represent a continuation of a disturbing trend of profiteers seeking to financially exploit the misfortunes of troubled homeowners. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) in 2013 found more than 40,000 complaints of foreclosure fraud occurred nationwide and together totaled losses to homeowners of more than $90 million. Each year from 2010 through 2012, more than 18,000 foreclosure fraud complaints were filed beyond the 9,000 complaints received in 2009. Foreclosure scammers

Charlene Crowell typically demand large, upfront cash payments from troubled homeowners and advise homeowners to stop making mortgage payments. They also dupe their victims into sharing important personal information such as Social Security and bank account numbers. After payment is received, the scammers do little or no work to obtain a loan modification for the homeowners. In the process, homeowners fall deeper into delinquency

and also lose valuable time that could have yielded better results. Free services of a HUDcertified housing counselor are available nationwide to help negotiate with mortgage servicers. Many times these housing counselors facilitate securing options to avoid foreclosure such as home modifications, refinance, forbearance, short sales and more. A new research report, Foreclosure Rescue, Inc. by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law finds that foreclosure scams are beginning to take new forms while still fraudulently taking money from distressed homeowners. Some scammers falsely claim government affiliation while others include improper involvement of legal and real estate professionals The Lawyers’ Committee litigation includes 14 lawsuits against loan scam operators whose collective SCAMS, See page 12A

Sell Your Home with Words

By Phoebe Chongchua What is written about a home that's for sale may have a positive impact on its sale price. I've written many times about how professional videos and photos can help sell your home faster and possibly for more money but we can't forget the power of the written word. A new study reports that the words used in listings can help increase the sale price of the home. On average, each property characteristic mentioned in a listing increased the sale price by just under 1% and the probability of selling the home by 9.2%, according to the study conducted by Bennie Waller, professor of finance and real estates at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. The study found listings that provided detailed information about amenities and features such as granite countertops and woodburning fireplaces, sell for

Phoebe Chongchua more money. Of course, if it's stated the home must, indeed, have these features. The study didn't include standard features, just the premium ones. A listing with 15 additional property characteristics can sell for about 13.5% more. While certain words such as "fabulous" and "beautiful" may seem over-used in the real estate industry, there is a reason for their popularity. They work. The positive opinion words used to de-

Spring Cleaning Tips:

scribe the features influence buyers to want to see more. Mentioning these positive subjective words bumped up the sale price by 0.9%. The study reports that, on average, using just 10 positive adjectives can help send the price up by 9%. It would seem it's a case of telling your buyers what you want them to see and experience before they've even set foot in the home. Couple the powerful, positive descriptive words with excellent supportive pictures and videos and you have several compelling reasons for buyers to come tour your home. As it goes with all advertising, telling a story, painting a picture of how the home will benefit and appeal to buyers is very powerful. Also, not telling the full story is important. Too many details will leave no reason for buyers or their agents to call and ask questions. WORDS, See page 12A

It's Easy to Keep Your Vinyl Siding Looking New

(NewsUSA) - Just as your car gets dirty, so does your home's siding. The good news is that if your home has vinyl siding, it's almost as easy to clean as your car. Imagine, with nothing more than a hose and water, mild soap and a longhandled soft bristle brush, you can keep your home looking its best. "When it comes to beauty, value, and ease of maintenance, nothing comes close to vinyl siding, which is why it has been the leading exterior cladding in the U.S. and Canada since 1995," said Jery Y. Huntley, president & CEO of the Vinyl Siding Institute. Vinyl siding is the exterior cladding that demands the least amount of time and resources to maintain. And for time-starved homeowners, that's one less thing to worry about. Compare that to your neighbors' houses: • Brick requires repointing of mortar. • Fiber cement siding requires periodic painting and caulking. • Wood siding requires

frequent painting and staining. • Stucco requires painting and sealing. But vinyl siding ... well, here's how easy it is to make your vinyl siding clean and the envy of the neighborhood: First, mix your cleaning solution in a large bucket. Four gallons of water and 1/4 cup of dish soap should do the trick. Start at the top, and work your way down to prevent streaks, hose off a section to remove any loose debris, then wet your brush in the cleaning solution and scrub the siding. Be sure to rinse away the soapy water before it dries, or it will leave marks on the siding. Small spots of mold and mildew can be cleaned with common cleaners such as Fantastik or Windex. Have stains? Try a solution of 30 percent vinegar and 70 percent water. Be sure to spot check any general or stain-specific cleaner before using it on a large section of siding. After removing the stain, rinse thorough-

ly with water. Do not use cleaners containing organic solvents, undiluted chlorine bleach, liquid grease remover, nail polish remover or furniture polish or cleaners. They can affect the surface of the siding. If using a pressure washer, be sure to keep the stream at eye level and pointed straight at the siding, not at an angle. That way, you won't drive water in behind the siding, which could cause mold to develop. Also, use caution when using a pressure washer around openings like windows, doors and plumbing connections. Take note that some manufacturers don't want pressure washers used on their products at all. Others allow them, but have limitations on the amount of pressure and the cleaners that can be used. With just a little bit of time and effort, vinyl siding can be kept looking "like new" and will provide many years of trouble-free beauty for your home.

Spotlight on Health:

By M. Brooks It looks like there is some scientific truth to the old saying, “laughter is the best medicine.” A new study from Loma Linda University in California finds that humor may reduce age-related memory loss caused by the “stress hormone” cortisol. Too much stress has been linked to a number of health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, allergies and diabetes. Stress has also been shown to lessen learning ability and memory in the elderly due to increased cortisol production that damages neurons in the brain. One of the best (and proven) stress relievers is laughter, so the research team led by Dr. Gurinder Singh Bains, came together to test this hypothesis: Laughter may reduce neuron damage caused by “stress hormone” cortisol, therefore improving memory in older individuals.

By Gwendolyn Harris Your most powerful weapon against the battle of the bulge may not be an eating utensil but a writing one! Watching what you eat starts long before food ever hits your fork or spoon by knowing what, why, when and how you eat. Like, how you REALLY eat and not just the healthy habits you’re kinda sorta thinking about doing most of the time. One of the best ways to know what’s really good with your health and eating habits is to write everything down. According to a study conducted by Dr. Gail Matthews, a Psychology professor at Dominican University of California, people who wrote down their goals, shared them with a friend and maintained accountability were 33% more successful reaching their goals than those who just formulated goals.

Three Tips for Choosing an Assisted-Living Home for Your Parent

Seventy percent of people age 65 and older will need long-term care at some point in their lives, according to a 2014 study by CareScout, a division of Genworth Financial Services. “But that doesn’t mean they have to sacrifice their quality of life,” says Peder Johnsen, CEO of Concordis Senior Living, www. concordisseniorliving. com, which owns, operates and develops senior housing communities. “In fact, a person who needs some assistance with day-to-day living will often find he or she is much happier in a good assistedliving community with an atmosphere that reminds them of their former home.” And it doesn’t have to be outrageously priced, notes Johnsen, a thirdgeneration ALF operator whose family pioneered the contemporary congregate community model. The median price for

a private, one-bed home in an ALF community is $42,000, he says, citing the CareScout report. By contrast, a semi-private nursing home bed costs a median $77,000 a year. But it’s up to prospective residents and their families to ascertain the quality of the community and whether it’s a good match for the person who will be living there. There are a number of

easy ways to see if a home has a truly caring atmosphere and well-trained staff. Johnsen offers these tips: • Ask to see the home’s state licensing survey, an assessment that usually includes inspections, audits, interviews with residents, etc. Every state has an ALF licensing agency and all have some form of survey system for ensuring that certain standards of quality HOME, See page 12A

Ten Medical Tests to Avoid

By Elizabeth Agnvall Doctors are warning that some of the common medical tests routinely taken by Americans do more harm than good, waste billions of health care dollars annually and could endanger your health or even your life. Among the tests targeted by prestigious panels of doctors as overused were annual Pap smears, regular PSA tests, regular EKGs and even routine yearly physicals. Overuse of such tests leads to dangerous side effects, pain, radiation exposure, unnecessary surgery — even death, the doctors said. The American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation asked more than 50 medical societies — of family doctors, oncologists, cardiologists and other specialties — to identify tests and treatments that are often unnecessary. AARP is a consumer partner with this campaign, called Choosing Wisely. 1. Nuclear stress tests, and other imaging tests,

after heart procedures Many people who have had a heart bypass, stent or other heart procedure feel they’ve had a brush with death. So patients — and doctors — understandably want to be reassured through a nuclear stress test or other tests that their hearts are beating strong. But performing these tests every year or even every two years in patients without symptoms rarely results in any change in treatment. In fact, it can lead to unnecessary invasive procedures and excess radiation exposure without helping the patient improve. 2. Yearly electrocardiogram or exercise stress test A survey of nearly 1,200 people ages 40 to 60 who have never had heart disease or any symptoms found that 39 percent had an EKG over the previous five years, and 12 percent said they had an exercise stress test. The problem: Someone at low risk for heart disease could be 10 times more likely to get a false-positive result than to

find a true problem. This could lead to unnecessary heart catheterization and stents. Instead, have your blood pressure and cholesterol checked. And if you’re at risk for diabetes, have your blood glucose level checked as well. 3. PSA to screen for prostate cancer Cancer is always scary, but the PSA test often finds slow-growing cancers that won’t kill men. As a result of the test, he says, men often have ultrasounds, repeat lab tests and even biopsies for a problem that isn’t there — an estimated 75 percent of tests that show high PSA levels turn out to be false alarms. When men do have treatments such as surgery or radiation, 20 to 40 percent end up with impotence, incontinence or both. 4. PET scan to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease Until recently, the only way to accurately diagnose Alzheimer’s was during an autopsy. In the last few years, doctors have begun TESTS, See page 12A

rious about your health and weight loss, here are three ways to use the power of the pen to help speed you to victory. 1. Keep a food journal. The method is simple: If you eat it, WRITE IT.

Can Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Help Prevent ADHD in Kids?

(NewsUSA) - Pregnant women might want to think twice before reaching for that pain pill. A new study published in the respected JAMA Pediatrics has discovered a possible link between acetaminophen -- found in Tylenol and many other pain pills -- and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. And while experts say the preliminary findings fall short of proving a direct causeand-effect relationship, the fact that acetaminophen is the most common drug taken by expectant mothers is sounding alarm bells. "We really should start looking at non-pharmacological ways to deal with pain," Jeff Chapa, director of maternal fetal medicine at Cleveland Clinic, told USA Today, while advising that acetaminophen continue to be used in the case of fevers. According to the study, which tracked more than 64,000 Danish children born from 1996 to 2002,

Gastro Woes More Common in Kids with Autism

By Brenda Goodman What many parents of children with autism have long suspected -- that autism and gastrointestinal complaints often go together -- is now supported by a new study. The study, a review of medical research, found that children with autism are more than four times as likely as their typically developing peers to have digestive difficulties such as abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation. The study authors stress that doesn’t mean the gastrointestinal troubles are the cause of autism, as one widely discredited theory has suggested, or that something about the biology of autism causes stomach complaints. No cause-and-effect relationship has been established. But the researchers say the link between the two problems is strong enough that it deserves more investigation.

A new study links acetaminophen use during pregnancy to ADHD in kids. those whose mothers took acetaminophen were: • 37 percent more likely to be diagnosed with hyperkinetic disorder -- the equivalent of "high end" ADHD. • 29 percent more likely to receive ADHD medications. One drug-free alternative that continues to gain

popularity is chiropractic care. The American Pregnancy Association notes it can help "maintain a healthier pregnancy" overall while also potentially "controlling symptoms of nausea, reducing the time of labor and delivery, relieving back, neck or joint ADHD, See page 12A

Virtual Reality Lets Dying Specialist Shares Three New Tech Tools Woman 'Walk' Outside Again Used to Combat Child Trafficking

Non-profit organizations, law enforcement agencies worldwide and even private industries are increasingly researching and funding technological innovations to disrupt and stem the global epidemic of human trafficking. Worldwide, 2.4 million people are human trafficking victims at any given time, according to a 2012 United Nations report. Eighty percent of them are children and women sold into sexual slavery. “These technological innovations allow us to attack the problem from many angles, from raising awareness and decreasing tolerance to actually identifying and locating traffickers and their customers,” says Timothy Ballard, CEO of Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), (http:// www.ourrescue.org/), a non-profit organization that specializes in rescuing children held by traffickers around the world and arranging for their captors’ arrests by local law enforcement agencies. O.U.R. was created Jan. 1 under the auspices of North American Child Rescue Association.

• Google Glass: People wearing Google’s new computer eyewear can, among many other things, shoot hands-free video and photos and share the recording. O.U.R. member Jesse Stay, founder of Commerce Futurists, is donating his Google Glass for O.U.R’s next few missions so a team member can record the rescues as they occur. O.U.R. hopes to eventually have deeper support from Google for this use. • Mobile Cause: This fundraising and mobile marketing platform allows non-profits to raise money and receive recurring donations through Mobile Pledging, which enables donors to donate when the impulse strikes them. It expands on “Text to Give,” the platform that was launched during the Haiti disaster and prompted mass donations in gifts of $5 or $10. Mobile Cause allows for donations of any size, and donors can share donations by posting to Facebook or Twitter from their phone. Non-profits can also share their missions and effectiveness to prospective donors through messages and videos. Mobile Cause charges no transaction fees. Donors to O.U.R. can text: ‘save’ to 41444 to give any amount using a credit or debit card.

Sometimes a simple walk outside can mean so much. Even if it’s not quite the real thing. Last December, Roberta Firstenberg died of cancer at the age of 76. Before the throat tumor formed, her granddaughter Priscilla said that Roberta loved to travel and garden. She baked cookies. She was known for her delicious banana bread. But cancer ultimately robbed Roberta of her ability to travel or ride in a car without great pain. Even the vibrations from being pushed in a wheelchair proved too much. That’s when Priscilla, a 29-year-old video game artist, reached out to Oculus Rift’s customer support center. She asked for one of the startup's popular virtual reality headsets that would allow her grandmother to “walk” outside again. “The Oculus Rift gave her options and gave her an experience that made her feel like she could walk again, without people having to hold her," Priscilla wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "She got to go up stairs on her own. She got to do a great number of things we couldn’t give her.” Since the video was posted in November and

Roberta Firstenberg wearing headset picked up interest again, Priscilla said the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Commentators with immobile loved ones said they wanted a headset of their own. Priscilla admitted that she doesn’t watch the video now, preferring instead to remember the happier moments before her grandmother became ill. “I can hear the difference in her voice, as it was getting tired from being used too much towards the end of her response,” Priscilla wrote, while also remarking how difficult it was to hear the sound of her sick dog in the background, the same dog she said she buried under her grandmother’s cherry blossom tree just a few

Oculus Rift’s virtual reality

By Kate Bratskeir For the hungry and the lazy, hunting down the perfect slice of pizza just got better, thanks to the ingenious merging of Yelp and emojis. Yelp released a new feature on its mobile app in late March, in which people can search using emoji if they're feeling too sluggish to type out actual words. Yes, where you used to have to tap out "ice cream," "doughnuts" and "pizza," the simple selection of an emoji will now suffice. But with 845 emojis to choose from on a standard iPhone keyboard (and with some having meanings that are indecipherable), you might wonder how reliable

this service can be. As it turns out, a lot of the emoji actually translate quite well. The pizza emoji, for example, proves practical when searching New York City's Greenwich Village. Locating nail parlors, banks, hair salons and post-

al offices is also a piece of cake (cake, no doubt, can be found too) with the applicable emoji. Of course, Yelp does have some limitations when it comes to the more elusive emojis. But the app manages to be clever and creative with these puzzling emoticons.

By Carina Kolodny If you're going to spend your life with your hands hovering over a keyboard, you might as well do it right. Or at least make the experience as tolerable as possible. And while most Mac users know basic keyboard shortcuts -- command + "X" to cut, command +"V" to paste, etc. -- there are so many more life-altering, time-saving tricks to be discovered. Let us lead you into the light. 1. If you need to cut through the clutter, press COMMAND + F3 Command + F3 pushes all your open applications out of the way so you can actually see your desktop, so you can procrastinate dealing with impending

application overload. 2. To become a tab-scrolling expert, press COMMAND + 1 (and so on) Command + a number helps you easily scroll through the respective tabs in your web browser, so you can quickly see what you need and, more importantly, click out of what you don't. 3. If you don't want to watch the entire hourlong YouTube video of your niece's dance recital, press 1, 2, 3 (and so on) 1, 2, 3 will advance the video to 10 percent completion, 20 percent completion, 30 percent completion, respectively (and so on and so forth). Take that, little niece. 4. If you frequently write words like "antidisestablishmentarianism," press

OPTION + DELETE Option+Delete deletes entire words so you don't have to hold down the delete key forever. Unfortunately, there is not a keyboard shortcut to ending insufferable wordiness. 5. If your vocabulary isn't quite as advanced, try CONTROL + COMMAND + D Control+Command+D will define any highlighted word. Look at you, all literate now! 6. If formatting copied text drives you insane, try CONTROL + COMMAND+V Control+Command+V pastes your copied text without including its formatting. Your formatting problems have now been disappeared.

days after filming. “The video has been described as ‘beautiful and sad’ by many. But because events are still fresh with me, it’s a marker of the most struggling time of my life.” Most recently, Oculus Rift has been best known for its $2 billion buyout by Facebook, which imagines using the technology for non-gaming purposes like virtual classrooms and doctor visits. But Priscilla insists that her video wasn’t a PR stunt for the headset. "It’s about using something that was thought of as just a video game, a toy,” Priscilla wrote, “and turning it into something more important than anyone could ever really understand."

about their opinions on the future of technology. About half of Americans think that in 50 years, computers will be able to create art that is indistinguishable from that made by human artists. Nearly half of us are also ready for driverless cars, Pew found. Fortyeight percent said they'd like to ride in one, while 50 percent said they wouldn't. While some of us might be OK with the idea of robot cars driving us around, we aren't cool with robots taking care of our grandmas. Sixty-five percent of those surveyed said they believe it will be a change for the worse if robots are the main caretakers of the elderly. Similarly, very few people said they would want a robot servant. Those surveyed were pretty wary of drones, as well. Pew found 63 percent of Americans think it will be a negative development if "personal and commercial drones are given permission to fly through most U.S. airspace," while 22 percent think that would be a positive change. While we might be split on certain innovations, 59 percent of people said they were optimistic that coming technological and scientific changes will make life in the future better.

Commentary Beyond the Rhetoric:

etary schools and career colleges teach on-the-job skills that are necessary for good, specific careers: dental hygienists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, computer programmers, chefs, beauticians, barbers and many more who learn their trades at these institutions and get the foundation for a path to the middle class. Companies depend on these institutions to train qualified employees and provide a pipeline of skilled workers to grow their businesses. For years, these institutions have served both African-American students and African-American businesses well. Proprietary schools provide a pathway to career success and have allowed our African-American middle class to grow. I know this personally. My daughter graduated from high school and had trouble figuring out her next step. Eventually she landed in a private sector university and I was so proud when she got her Bachelor’s degree. Being motivated and full of self-esteem she went further. Next week, she marches onto the stage and will receive her Master’s degree. Two private schools saved my daughter’s future and now the Federal Government wants

to slam their doors shut to other striving youth. It is an American tragedy. That’s why it’s so disappointing to see the federal government aiming its sights at this sector of higher education and the students they serve. And it’s even more disappointing, but not surprising, to see them twist the facts to make their case. As they say, “figures don’t lie, but liars certainly will figure”. At least they’re getting called out for it. The Washington Post last week reported that the Department of Education went “too far” when it said that three quarters of the graduates of these institutions make less than a high school dropout. Not only is this wrong— and the Washington Post dug into the numbers to show why—but what an awful lesson for the Department to teach! We drill it into our kids that they need to stay in school, study hard, and graduate. We encourage them to go to college and continue their education so they can find a good career.

New NBA Commissioner Adam Silver wants to spend several days “investigating” the clearly racist remarks of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. There’s no need to waste a scintilla of another second on this foul-mouth bigot. Escort him to the closest exit and say good bye – for good. Record fines or a long suspension won’t do in this case if – and that’s a big if – the NBA is serious about addressing raw racism in a sport dominated by African Americans. Sterling, 81, has fouled out with his own words and the decision to permanently throw him out of the game doesn’t require a huddle around the scorer’s table to review his odious behavior. Unless you’ve been under a rock or just landed from Mars, you should know by now that Sterling, who has a long and acrimonious history with people of color, exposed his true feelings about African Americans in a conversation with his mistress, Vanessa Stiviano, who is almost 50 years his junior. The conversation was apparently taped surreptitiously in Sterling’s home by Stiviano, who describes herself as part Mexican and part Black. A 9-mintute segment of the conver-

sation was posted Saturday to celebrity website TMZ. A 15-minute excerpt was later posted by Deadspin. There was this exchange in one segment: V: I don’t understand, I don’t see your views. I wasn’t raised the way you were raised. DS: Well then, if you don’t feel—don’t come to my games. Don’t bring black people, and don’t come. V: Do you know that you have a whole team that’s black, that plays for you? DS: You just, do I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have—Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league? At one point, Sterling said: “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?…” “You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games…” “I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Ins-

Supreme Court Continues to Limit Affirmative Action

Rancher Cliven Bundy and ‘The Negro’

Julianne Malveaux

Lee A. Daniels

The Roberts Supreme Court decided last week that voters in the state of Michigan had the right to ban affirmative action policies in college admissions. Michigan is one of many where mediocre White students challenge the fact that African American students, far more qualified than they, have been admitted to college. This has happened in Texas and California, among other states. These challenges to affirmative action have roots in the 1976 Bakke case, where the 38-year-old Alan Bakke sued because his application to medical school was rejected and he felt that he was displaced in favor of a minority student. The Supreme Court ordered Bakke admitted to the University of California at Davis, and also ruled that affirmative action was permissible under law. What bothers me most about these anti affirmative action cases is the implicit White skin privilege that compels them. College admissions are an art, not a science. Students whose parents contribute generously to a college get an edge. In the name of diversity, a student from California, regardless of race, may get a bit of an edge at

Dartmouth or Columbia. A violist, newspaper editor, or budding sports star, might also get a break. Meanwhile obdurate and privileged Whites don’t go after these people. Their ire is directed toward African Americans and other people of color. Justice Sonia Sotomayor got it completely right when she said that race still matters. When the Supreme Court upholds these anti affirmative laws they deny history. Make it plain. The Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964, a scant 60 years ago. Affirmative action policies were developed shortly after that so that the formerly closed doors of academia could be opened. Affirmative action had a short shelf life before it was challenged in 1978, just 14 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act. The opponents of affirmative action say that the color blindness that the Civil Rights Act mandated prevents remediation from past discrimination. What about contemporary discrimination? The University of Michigan, in its admissions policies, has evaluated students by a points system. Students get extra points if they have participated in Advanced Placement

Once again, the federal government has been caught making up numbers, this time to support its efforts to put career colleges and proprietary universities out of business. As background, the U.S. Department of Education is trying once again to impose a “gainful employment” rule on college students who attend private-sector colleges and universities. These institutions serve a disproportionate number of African-American students, and provide these students with valuable career training and job skills. They serve an important purpose for students who come from underserved communities and have not succeeded in traditional education environments. But if the government has its way, it will deny options to these students and shut down an entire sector of higher education. The “gainful employment” rule would apply arbitrary metrics only to these types of institutions. The government is proposing to deny financial aid to students who seek to attend programs that don’t meet these metrics, and the effect on both students and businesses would be disastrous. These are not traditional education institutions. Private sector or Propri-

(AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses. How many high schools in troubled Detroit, have access to these classes. Yet the people of Detroit pay taxes to support a college that discriminates against them. When the anti-affirmative action crowd talks about fairness do they take this into consideration? When University of Michigan admits do not reflect the demographics of Detroit, aren’t the Whites who attempt to dominate the welfare recipients of the state? The attempt for fairness is misplaced when anti-affirmative action proponents want people of color to pay for a university system that gives White people preferential treatment. In a few weeks we will commemorate the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. While it took some time for Brown to be implemented, it was a Supreme Court decision that opened doors to equal education for those who have been discriminated against.

As is typical of blowhards, Cliven Bundy, the conservative movement’s most recently defrocked hero/criminal, opened his mouth once too often. In doing so, the Nevada rancher revealed who he really is behind all the Stars-and-Stripes flagwaving and man-of-theWest rhetoric. The man who has grazed his cattle on federal land for more than two decades but has refused to pay the minimal grazing fees the government charges all ranchers (Bundy now owes about $1 million) is an arch-racist as well as a chiseler. On Saturday, April 19, Bundy, speaking to a small group of his supporters – and, fortunately for the rest of us, a New York Times reporter and photographer – went off-message to hold forth on a number of topics, including race. According to the Times, Bundy said: “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” as he recalled driving past a Las Vegas public housing project, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids – and there is always at least a half dozen people sitting on the porch – they didn’t have nothing to do.

They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.” Bundy didn’t stop there: “And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.” Did Cliven Bundy form those views just from driving past – once? twice? – a federally subsidized housing project where Black Americans live? Or did they come from the stew of racist notions that still have wide circulation in the political ideology – conservatism – Bundy claims to be an adherent. Some of his wellknown enablers among the conservative echo chamber of politicians, talk-show jockeys and pundits quickly distanced themselves from Bundy as soon as the Times story appeared. Others, doublingdown, claimed his racist

tagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.” “Don’t put him (Magic Johnson) on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games.” Finally, there was the following exchange: DS: You think I’m a racist, and wouldn’t— V: I don’t think you’re a racist. DS: Yes you do. Yes you do. V: I think you, you— DS: Evil heart. DS: It’s the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs. V: So do you have to treat them like that too? DS: The white Jews, there’s white Jews and black Jews, do you understand? V: And are the black Jews less than the white Jews? DS: A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent. V: And is that right? DS: It isn’t a question— we don’t evaluate what’s right and wrong, we live in NBA, See page 11B

views were irrelevant to what they asserted were his proper resistance to federal government overreach. But it’s too late for that flimflam. Beyond the laughable hypocrisy of Cliven Bundy, chiseler, asserting that “the Negro” is too dependent on government largesse, his words underscore that American conservatism’s central motivating force from the long-ago past to the present has always been the oppression of ‘the Negro.” For one thing, consider that Bundy brought up the topic himself – and not only made it clear he thinks Blacks were better off when the vast majority were enslaved but would be better off now if reduced to something approximating slavery. Bundy’s views aren’t at all unique among American conservatives. Especially since President Obama took office, conservatives, high and low, have shown an obsession with twisting the truth about Negro slavery.

STATES From page 1A especially those of color and/or from low-income homes, who are more likely to attend in-state public institutions. First, these budget cuts are affecting the quality of education at public colleges and universities. “States (and to a lesser extent localities) provide 53 percent of the revenue that can be used to support instruction at these schools,” the report states. “When this funding is cut, colleges and universities generally must either cut educational or other services, raise tuition to cover the gap, or both.” These cuts often result in the loss of full-time, expert teacher positions in favor of switches to adjunct (contracted) instructors, the disintegration of entire departments and majors, truncated access to resources such as computer labs and libraries, and more. For example, in 2011 the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill eliminated 16,000 course seats, four of its computer labs and two distance education centers. In 2012, Louisiana State University eliminated 1,210 full-time positions, including more than 220 faculty members. The University System of Georgia has merged independent state schools five times in the last two years. Nationwide, the number of faculty per student has declined. In addition to the decline in educational quality, the decline in state investment is resulting in long-term financial instability for today’s students. There’s the national trend known as the Great Cost Shift in which students and families, particularly low-income households, are shouldering more of the cost of keeping public colleges afloat. According to the report, enrollment fees, tuition, and other student charges accounted for 24 percent of state schools’ revenue in 1988. Today, schools rely on student charges for 48 percent of their revenues. Stated differently, in 1988 schools received 3.2 times as much in revenue from state and local government as they received from students in 1988— today, it’s just 1.1 times as much. In fact, at that time only two states—Vermont and New Hampshire, both very affluent— had average tuition amounts larger than state expenditures. By 2008 that had grown to 10 states, including Michigan and Pennsylvania, which both have significant poverty. In eight states (including a few with large Black populations, such as Louisiana, Alabama, California, Georgia, and Florida), average tuition has jumped by more than 50 percent in six years. The Great Cost Shift is directly feeding swelling student debt. According to a 2012 report from the Center for American Progress, 81 percent of Black students who earned a bachelor’s took on debt to do it— and 27 percent of these students are on the hook for $30,500 or more. Earlier this year, the United Negro College Fund, the largest and oldest private minority financial aid organization, called for emergency aid to supplement the weakened public financial aid system. By the end of 2013, student loan debt had surpassed car and credit debt, with American students borrowing more than $1 trillion to pursue degrees. “As students are asked to shoulder a greater burden, they resort to borrowing,” says Michael Mitchell, co-author of the report. “Over 2008 to 2012, there’s been a major increase in debt, especially for low-income families, because financial aid is no longer covering the costs.” And the financial indebtedness extends well past college. In an effort to mitigate costs, students, especially lowincome students, are choosing less competitive and less selective intuitions, despite being academically qualified for more prestigious institutions. “Where a student decides to go to college has broad economic implications, especially for disadvantaged students and students of color,” the report states, citing a 2011 study which found that, “students who had parents with less education, as well as African-American and Latino students, experienced higher postgraduate earnings by attending more elite colleges relative to similar students who attended less-selective universities.” There are the students who aspire to attend college but are deterred by the rising cost and even their family’s ineligibility for loans. As of 2008, only 44 percent of high-scoring students in the bottom 25 percent of household income enroll in college, compared to the 80 percent of students in the top income bracket. According to research cited in the report, 65 percent of all American jobs will require at least some college by 2020.

Ultimately, this widespread disinvestment and its results have implications for the future of the American economy, which makes it difficult for recent college graduates to enter the middle class. This debt deters many from even attending college. Those who do attend and graduate go into repayment and cannot afford homeownership, advance degrees that qualify them for highly skilled careers, or full participation in the economy as a consumer. “College attainment has grown increasingly important to long-term economic outcomes for states and the nation. Research suggests that states should strive to expand college access and increase college graduation rates to help build a strong middle class and develop the skilled workforce needed to compete in today’s global economy,” the report stated. While these cutbacks in higher education funding were undoubtedly caused by the recession, current state tax and budget decisions are perpetuating the decline. “While some states are experiencing greater-than-anticipated revenue growth due to an economy that is slowly returning to normal, state tax revenues are barely above pre-recession levels,” the report explains. “To bring higher education back to pre-recession levels, many states may need to supplement that revenue growth with new revenue to fully make up for years of severe cuts.” The report also highlights Florida as an example of poor budgeting. According to the report, Florida’s higher education funding is 30 percent below 2007 levels, while tuition at its public four-year schools is up 66 percent. Despite this, the legislature has cut taxes by $400 million, making it financially impossible for the state to adequately reinvest in its college students. “I can’t stress enough how much the source of these problems are policy choices, not income,” says Mitchell. “Essentially state law makers are making decisions today that will have serious economic significance for students later in life.” Federal financial aid has significantly increased since the recession. Between 2007 and 2013, need-based Pell grants have doubled, allowing the government to not only award students, but also increase the individual award from $2,975 to $3,704, on average. The report also cites College Board data, which finds that this and other federal measures have offset 73 percent of the tuition hike paid by the average American student. The extra federal funding is also largely a stopgap measure. According to the report, the approved House of Representatives 2015 budget proposal calls for a $125 billion cut in Pell grants over the next decade, plus new eligibility restrictions and a cap on grant amounts. However, the funds have already gone a long way at community colleges, where outof-pocket cost for the average student is on the decline. “It’s impossible to overstate the impact of the recession, but states had the option of taking a balanced approach over the course of the recession,” Mitchell explains. “As revenues start to come back to pre-recession levels, state legislatures really have a choice to make now to rebuild their states’ higher education systems.” GROPER From page 1A elder or dependent adult abuse.

Milt had been studying the life of the man whose picture was on the back of the Wheaties box, Bob Mathias had won the gold medal in the decathlon competition at the Olympic Games in London, England in 1948. Mathias’ success inspired Campbell, who began to train his mind and body to do what Bob Mathias had done. Milt started to visualize himself standing on the top step, having the gold hung around his neck. He worked hard and trained hard.

UNITY From page 2A We don’t have to be at every event or meeting to show support. We can begin with the little things. We can make a decision and choose to stand together. We can humble ourselves and realize if nothing else, we all live here. We can stand firm in the idea that this is our community, and every single person that lives here is a part of it and contributes something. We can decide to respect each other. We can show support by lifting up what our neighbor is doing instead of criticizing what they are doing and sowing toxic seeds by talking bad about it to everyone else. We can start by hoping the other person does well, just as we would want people to wish us well on our endeavors. Start with the little things, and they will grow into bigger things. If we can unite and support one another in our community - our families, our schools, our businesses - all will benefit from it. Inez Lanns was born and raised in Ventura County.

The Grand Jury recommends that the Board of Supervisors eliminate its policy of fee reductions and the total waiver of fees for food operator permits; this would significantly add revenues to the EHD operating funds. These revenues would allow the EHD to hire additional full-time inspectors to facilitate inspections of all food-handling operations, develop time-saving computer programs to efficiently track the permit process and develop more comprehensive food-handling classes. These steps would help to assure the public of continued safety from food-borne illnesses even in an environment of increasing community events and TFFs. FINE From page 3A As Lenoir sees it, Covered California’s outreach to AfricanAmericans began too late, and did not effectively utilize black newspapers and radio. Considering the health care exchange’s $85 million marketing budget, he called the level of black outreach “pitiful.” “There are no challenges, just will,” said Lenoir, who is also the host and executive producer of the “About Health” program on Pacifica Radio. “The effort to reach AfricanAmericans was never robust. I don’t think there was enough outreach to African-Americans on not only what [Obamacare] is, but how to access it.” With so many questions remaining, Lenior, whose show

broadcasts in the Bay area, said education and outreach will be key. He devotes every third program to the topic, and believes strongly that partnerships between black health professionals and black media organizations are crucial. Later this month, his show will begin hosting radio town hall meetings to discuss Obamacare and other health issues. “I want to be able to reach the African-Americans out there drinking gin and juice,” he said. “My whole career, I have been trying to address the problems of people who listen to the radio.” Brown, whose district stretches from Grand Terrace to Muscoy, said the Black Caucus recently met with Covered California officials to express concern about the African-American enrollment numbers. “Covered California indicated they are going to review their efforts and make any necessary changes and provide the funding to improve African-American outreach and increase the number of enrollees,” she said. “We look forward to working with them as we approach the next open enrollment period.” As for non-enrollment penalties, Brown said reactions to the IRS bill will likely depend on the depth of knowledge about Obamacare. “If people are not made aware of the advantages of having health care,” she said, “they will simply ignore the law and not participate — regardless of the threat of a fine.” Shelton, the personal trainer in Los Angeles, said he isn’t looking forward to that bill. “I guess,” he said with an air of resignation, “I will just have to pay it.” LAUSD From page 5A with Union Bank to celebrate the grand opening of these studentrun branches in Los Angeles.

How will you communicate with customers? The list may seem daunting, but take time to make each decision one at a time and soon, you’ll see your business taking shape. • Name your company after yourself or give it a made-up, easy-to-remember one-word name. Naming the company after your product or service seriously limits future expansion (remember – it’s important to think ahead!) Naming it after yourself or giving it a one-word, madeup name allows you to expand into other products, services, and even industries. It also provides a common denominator that ties everything together. If you think you may eventually sell the company, go with a made-up name. Doublecheck the U.S. Patent and Trademark website to ensure the name – even if it’s your own! -- is not already trademarked. SCAMS From page 8A efforts affected more than 400 troubled homeowners.

PET scans in older people consistently find the protein in 30 to 40 percent of people whose memories are just fine. If you’re concerned about your memory, the better course is to have a complete medical evaluation by a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating dementia. Many other medical conditions, such as strokes, thyroid deficiencies and vitamin deficiencies, can cause the same symptoms, and these are treatable. 5. X-ray, CT scan or MRI for lower back pain Unfortunately, back pain is incredibly common — 80 percent of people will suffer from back pain some time in their lives. It can be both excruciating and debilitating. Naturally, people want to know what’s wrong. Here’s the catch: The best imaging machines in the world often can’t tell them. Many older people with no back pain can have terrible-looking scans. Most back pain goes away in about a month and imaging tests tend to lead to expensive procedures that often don’t help recovery. If you don’t feel better in a month, talk to your doctor about other options such as physical therapy, yoga or massage. TEST, See page 11B WORD-FINDS, From page 5A

James Earl Jones Returning to Apollo Theater Announces Broadway This Fall Annual Spring Gala Performers

James Earl Jones By Mark Kennedy that forces a wealthy upNEW YORK — James tight family to meet an offEarl Jones is coming back kilter one. It was written to Broadway in a play by Moss Hart and George that's almost as old as he is. S. Kaufman. The 87-year-old twoPreviews will begin in time Tony Award-winner August, with official openwill star in a fall revival of ing set for Sept. 28. Adthe zany "You Can't Take It ditional casting and the With You," the 1936 com- theater will be announced edy about an engagement later. Scott Ellis will direct.

Jones, who won Tonys in 1969 for "The Great White Hope" and in 1987 for "Fences," was in "Driving Miss Daisy" in 2010 opposite Vanessa Redgrave, and Gore Vidal's "The Best Man" in 2012. The plot centers on a young woman who must introduce her fiance's straight-laced family to her rather more eccentric family. Craziness immediately ensues. The play, which won a Pulitzer Prize and initially ran for two years from 1936-38, was last revived on Broadway in 1983 starring Jason Robards and Colleen Dewhurst. Frank Capra directed a film version in 1938 starring Lionel Barrymore and James Stewart. The upcoming revival of "You Can't Take It With You" will be produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Steve Traxler, Jessica Genick and Will Trice.

By Jessica Goodman Mariah Carey is pulling a Beyoncé and announced plans to release a "surprise" album. In Billboard's latest cover story the legendary singer revealed she has been working on her 14th album since 2010, and will debut the name, track listing, artwork and music at the same time online. Carey released her last album, "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel," in 2009 and the LP only had one song kill in the charts, "Obsessed." But she saw success last summer with "#Beautiful," a collaboration with Miguel that sold 1.2 million downloads, according to Billboard.

Mariah Carey Rumors of the "secret" or "surprise" album circulated online before the issue was

published. Reports from Digital Spy cited an official press release that mentioned a "surprise" for Mariah's fans and one of her dancers tweeted about something special in the works. Though it hasn't been announced which digital music service Carey will use to release the album, Digital Music News reported that iTunes was collaborating with another big-name artist to replicate the Beyoncé's success. Despite speculation, this untitled album won't be Carey's last. "I will always make music. When I said it could be my last, that's because tomorrow's not promised to anyone," she told Billboard.

If he loses that job nobody’s living in Calabasas anymore.” “I guarantee you, three years from now she’s going to be thinking, ‘Damn, I should have shut the f*ck up…women always running out the mouth when they shouldn’t.’... This bitch was thirsty. The bitch was thirsty. What, she gone go back to dancing? She gone f*ck her money up?” The audio clip, which has since been removed from the show’s hosting site, has drawn a hailstorm

of criticism, prompting a Change.org petition, urging Hughley to publicly apologize for “endangering the lives of Black women who may be victims of domestic violence by encouraging them to remain silent.” On April 30, D.L. Hughley addressed the controversy during a candid conversation on-air for all of his listeners to hear: “Columbus Short’s wife came up and she is alleging that he had hit her with a wine bottle and assaulted her with a knife. I quickly jumped to Columbus Short’s defense, and I put my mouth, my, my, if this were a joke, or if I had a done a joke that people got offended by I can honestly say I wouldn’t be apologizing. I don’t think humor, as subjective, as sometime as cutting that it can be, I think that’s something, that’s where I draw a line, I won’t apologize for that. “What I will apologize for is putting my mouth on a woman who was victimized by a man who I know, and before I knew the facts, or before I knew the severity or before I knew much of anything about it.”

Mariah Carey Plans Surprise Album, Ruins Surprise

D.L. Hughley Stirs Outrage After Controversial Domestic Violence Comments

Just days after the announcement of Columbus Short’s dismissal from ABC’s hit series, “Scandal,” comedian D.L. Hughley has landed himself in hot water for recent comments he made regarding Short’s ongoing marital woes with estranged wife, Tanee McCall-Short . During a recent segment on his Radio One show, “The D.L. Hughley Show,” the 51-year-old questioned the validity behind Short’s misdemeanor spousal battery charge, in which the actor reportedly choked his wife while she was sleeping. “The star of one of the hottest dramas in the country, chokes the f*ck out of his wife? That doesn’t ever happen. I don’t think it happened first off. Like the time Warren Sapp was getting ready to do the Super Bowl and some broad said that he raped her. There are just as many examples of women lying on men in the middle of divorce proceedings to get what they want as there are men who actually do anything. My point is if he did what she’s alleging he did, she could still get all that she’s go-

Wayne Brady As this year marks the 80th anniversary of the prestigious Apollo Theater, the iconic venue has decided to revamp its annual Spring Gala into a starstudded birthday party. For the second consecutive year Emmy Awardwinning and Grammy nominated entertainer Wayne Brady will helm hosting duties for the June 10 benefit, which will commemorate eight decades of the theater’s illustrious history of highlighting some of entertainment’s biggest and brightest stars.

Totten announced that on April 24, 2014, Scott Christopher Wood, a transient living in Thousand Oaks, was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Colleen Toy White to serve three years in state prison following his guilty plea to one count of indecent exposure and his admission that he was in violation of his probation terms. Wood was on probation for both felony possession of child pornography and misdemeanor domestic violence and vandalism. On March 6, 2014, Wood exposed himself to women at the Camarillo Premium Outlets and in a parking lot on Carmen Drive in Camarillo. Camarillo police detectives identified Wood as a potential suspect by using information from the sex offender registry. Victims later identified him as the perpetrator. This case was the result of a joint investigation by the Ventura County Sheriffs Office and the Ventura County Probation Agency.

The People’s Throb

On Mother’s Day, What Do Have Planned for Your Mother, or the Woman That Raised You?

By Gary L. Harbour

“Well, to start with I am going to thank my mother for being the strong woman and wonderful mother she is. Next, call in to my grandmother thanking her for being such a wonderful mother to my mother. This year is the first year that I can’t call my greatgrandmother. However, she is in my thoughts. She was my own Queen Bee. She passed on 10-12-13 at 100 years and 8 months.”

“I will call my mom and wish her a happy Mother’s Day.”

“I was thinking of taking my wife to a nice brunch, then a day of wine tasting.”

“Me and my brother will probably cook breakfast or take her to breakfast and spend a day at the beach.”

“I am scheduled to work on Mother’s Day in the E.R., so I plan to call her at 5 A.M. before I start, as I’m sure she would love to hear from me at that time. We do have a great relationship, so I’m probably forgiven before the year is up.”

“For Mother’s Day, I plan to go to dinner with my family to a nice restaurant. During the day, I sell flowers for the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays. I will make her a gorgeous bouquet to place on the dining room table for everyone to enjoy. She is the most amazing mother I could ever imagine. She is my rock and the most inspirational woman I know. I am so blessed to be her daughter.”

Show Moms, Grads Your Love but Ventura County Community Foundation Tie Down Those Metallic Balloons Honor Dedicated Community Leaders

ROSEMEAD, Calif. — Sixty-six percent. It would be a great number in an election. Unfortunately, it reflects a one-month spike in pow-

er outages caused by metallic balloons. Since the month of May and its celebrations of Mother’s Day, graduations and proms has arrived again, Southern

California Edison (SCE) urges its customers during National Electrical Safety Month to keep the balloons secured to a weight as required by law and to never release them outdoors. Last year, SCE’s balloonrelated outages increased from 70 in April to 116 in May and eventually caused 2,454 hours of interruptions for homes and businesses over the 12 months. “Customers should keep the balloons indoors, if possible, but they should always keep them tied to a weight that prevents them from floating away,” said BALLOONS, See page 11B

CAMARILLO -- The Ventura County Community Foundation recognized five individuals and two organizations at its Fourth Annual Community Leadership Awards at the Los Robles Greens Golf Course on April 22.

Ventura resident Jackie Pearce received the Kesa Ryono Award. Pearce grew up in the economically disadvantaged Westside com-

munity, known as "The Avenue." She became an educator on the Westside as well as an advocate for green space in an area with few parks.

Philanthropist Award.

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.

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 .

A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 06/04/14 at 9:00AM in Dept. J6 located at 4353 E. VINEYARD AVENUE, OXNARD, CA 93036 IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner JUSTIN M. ALVAREZ SBN 223472 CHRISTOPHER P. YOUNG SBN 281512 THE ALVAREZ FIRM 24005 VENTURA BLVD.

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. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: DAVID J. GLASS, ESQ.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that

the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1350892. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, (714)730-2727 for information regarding the trustee`s sale or visit this Internet Web site, https:// www.lpsasap.com/, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9550-1005. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder`s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

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.

A Petition for Probate has been filed by PAUL WAGNER in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that PAUL WAGNER be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: MAY 21, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Justice Center. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: /S/Alfred R. Keep (CSB #032192) LAW OFFICE OF ALFRED R. KEEP 4266 E.

FREER AND VIOLA M. FREER, HUSBAND AND WIFE, BY DEED RECORDED FEBRUARY 27, 1968 IN BOOK 3268 PAGE 282, OFFICIAL RECORDS. The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be 919 & 923 N. Main St:, Piru, CA 93035-9723. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $350,000.00 (Estimated).

The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located and more than three months have elapsed since such recordation. NOTCE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liend 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 of deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about the trustee sae postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1143. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet

Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. DATE: 05/05/2014 Parker Foreclosure Services, LLC PO Box 2940 Ventura, CA 93002-2940 (805) 5703500 Donald D.

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

ponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the schedule sale. The beneficiary of said. Lien hereto-executed and delivered to the undersigned, a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale; and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the County .where the real property is located. Date: May 2, 2014 Association Lien Services, as Trustee P.O.

California DMV reports possible breach of credit card data

By David R. Baker The California Department of Motor Vehicles is reporting a possible data security breach in its credit card processing services but said it had not yet found evidence that its computer system had been hacked. The department did not describe in detail the nature of the possible breach. But the news comes at a time when extensive hacks at retailers Target and Neiman Marcus have raised doubts about the security of credit and debit card information. The DMV, which lets Californians pay many fees online, first learned of the potential problem from law enforcement authorities, according to a statement the department posted Saturday on its website. Aided by state and federal investigators, the department is seeking information from credit card companies as well as the firm that processes credit card transactions for the DMV. “Protecting the identity and security of our customers is our highest priority, and we fully understand the potential impact any breach of security can have,” said Armando Botello, public information officer for the DMV. “The department has implemented heightened monitoring of all DMV website traffic and credit card transactions. We will immediately notify any affected DMV customers as quickly as possible if we find any issue. DMV customers are also encouraged to closely monitor their credit card statements and transactions for any fraudulent or unusual activity and report it to their credit card company immediately.” Hackers working through one of Target’s outside vendors last year stole debit and credit card information for 40 million customers who shopped at the low-cost retailer between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15. A separate attack last year netted the card information of 350,000 Neiman Marcus customers.

TEST From page 12A 6. Yearly Pap tests The yearly Pap smear is a common part of women’s health checklists, but it doesn’t need to be. Women at average risk only need them every three years, since cervical cancer generally takes 10 to 20 years to develop. If women have also had negative tests for the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is now known to cause the cancer, they only need a Pap test along with the HPV test every five years. And women older than 65 who have had several normal Pap tests in a row can stop having them altogether. Do note, however, that a yearly visit to an ob-gyn stays on the to-do list. 7. Bone density scan for women before age 65 and men before age 70 For the estimated 10 million people — mainly women —in the United States who have osteoporosis, bone-strengthening medications can lower the chances of breaking a bone. But many experts argue that for those ages 50 to 65 who have osteopenia — mild bone loss — testing and subsequent drug prescriptions may be a waste of time and money. Not only is the risk of fracture often quite low, medications such as Fosamax (alendronate) and Boniva (ibandronate) have been linked to throat or chest pain, difficulty swallowing, heartburn, muscle pain, bone loss in the jaw and thigh-bone fractures. 8. Follow-up ultrasounds for small ovarian cysts Many women receive repeated ultrasounds to verify that ovarian cysts have not become cancerous, but current research says that these tests aren’t necessary. For one thing, premenopausal women have harmless ovarian cysts regularly. For another, about 20 percent of postmenopausal women also develop harmless cysts. 9. Colonoscopy after age 75 Most people should have screening for colon cancer at 50 and then every five to 10 years after that, if the first test is normal. By age 75 — if you’ve always had normal colonoscopies — you can stop taking this test altogether. That should be good news, because a colonoscopy can cause serious complications in older people. 10. Yearly physical There’s little evidence that having an annual checkup can keep you healthy. Many tests that doctors regularly perform — to diagnose anemia, liver disease or urinary tract infections, for example — don’t make sense unless there’s a reason to suspect a problem. Your specific needs should determine how often you see your doctor, he adds. If you have an illness that needs treatment, you should see your physician. And do talk to your doctor about how often you need to have your blood pressure and cholesterol tested. NBA From page 11A a society. We live in a culture. We have to live within that culture.

In 2009, he paid $2.7 million to settle a suit accusing him of discriminating against Blacks, Latinos and families with children at an apartment building he owned in Los Angeles. In addition, NBA Hall of Famer Elgin Baylor, who spent 22 years with the Clippers, filed a suit against Sterling in 2009 for wrongful termination. According to the Los Angeles Times, “In his deposition, Baylor spoke about what he called Sterling’s ’plantation mentality,’ alleging the owner in the late 1990s rejected a coaching candidate, Jim Brewer, because of race. Baylor quoted Sterling as saying: ‘Personally, I would like to have a white Southern coach coaching poor black players.’ Baylor said he was shocked. ‘And he [Sterling] looked at me and said, ‘Do you think that’s a racist statement?’ I said, ‘Absolutely. That’s plantation mentality.’ ” Donald Sterling is the Paula Deen of professional basketball. Accordingly, the NBA should stick a fork in him and tell him he’s done. George E.

BUNDY From page 11A President Obama’s intent is to “enslave” Whites; it’s White conservatives – and their Black frontmen such as Ben Carson, Herman Cain and Allen West – asserting that Blacks who vote Democratic are unthinkingly content to laze about on the Democratic “plantation.” If it’s not the Family Leader, an Iowa-based conservative group, proclaiming that Blacks were better off during the Slave era because the slave-owners kept their families intact – a brazen lie – it’s former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, now head of the powerful, conservative Heritage Foundation, declaring on a right-wing Christian talk show earlier this month that the slaves were not emancipated by “big government” but by “a growing movement among the people, particularly people of faith that [slavery] was wrong.” I’ve no doubt that the ignorance on display in the conservative movement’s obsession with American slavery is largely a deliberate gambit to obscure how evil – and widely accepted among Whites – slavery and its successor, legalized racism, was. But I also think that, as with Cliven Bundy, some of it stems from the deep-rooted fear of what “freedom” for Black Americans means for those Whites who need the crutch of White supremacy to feel good about themselves. If Blacks were “free,” you could get Black Americans contributing a full measure of their talent to American society. Why, you might get a Paul Robeson, or an Althea Gibson, or a Leontyne Price, or even a president of the United States. And then, what would America be? Lee A.

dropping out of high school than attending a proprietary college is beyond the pale! It also shows the lengths to which the Department will go to shut down these schools that have served our community so well. The Washington Post says that if you use the same math the Department uses on all private schools—from Harvard Dental School to child care training programs—well over half would fail! And yet the Department is proposing to regulate only proprietary colleges and universities. At risk, by the Department of Education’s own admission, are more than 1 million students who will be negatively impacted by the proposed Gainful Employment regulation. What about their future? Denying them a chance to improve the quality of their lives and better living for their future children hurts them and hurts our economy. The chance of poverty increases exponentially. That will spike poor healthcare, crime (as an alternative to suffering), domestic violence and hopelessness. These ailments are far too familiar to our communities and crushing the hopes of more than 1 million students will take it to another much higher level. We must stop them from this. I just don’t know why this Administration keeps fighting the principles of free enterprise. It may be a first amongst modern nations. We now have a government that decides to fight the vehicles of education and increased opportunity for its citizens. Let’s show the outrage! Not every student needs to go to Harvard Dental School to get a great career. But students do need to have the option to pursue the education that is right for them and the ability to access higher education that can provide them with career options. It’s time to tell the Department of Education to stop the gainful employment rule before it’s too late. Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce®.

AFFIRMATIVE From page 11A affirmative action case, the Supreme Court has chosen to slam doors in the face of those who have experienced historical discrimination. This Supreme Court, collectively, has behaved no better than Southern night riders who would stop at nothing too exclude African Americans from participation in education, voting, or owning property. This court is no better than the administrators at the University of Georgia who denied Charlayne Hunter Gault and Hamilton Harris admission, despite their qualifications. This court has legalized educational segregation, and Sonia Soyomayor’s blistering attack on her colleagues reflects the sentiments of millions of people who are tired of this court trampling on their rights and history. Justice John Roberts is 59 years old. He attended college when long excluded people of color were admitted because of race-conscious policies. What are his resentments toward his classmates who, equally qualified, may have “displaced” some of his friends? Does everyone who has been “displaced” have grounds for a lawsuit? What impact will Roberts have on race matters in the future? While Justice Sotomayor is on the court to check him, and while her opinions will have some weight, she and her colleagues will not be able to outvote the myopic conservative majority. Roberts led the cabal that slammed the door in the faces of people of color. His justice is a “just us” attempt to reinforce White privilege.

BALLOONS From page 1B Don Neal, SCE director of Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety. “Never removing this weight is the best way to prevent outages and mishaps caused by balloons.” Those mishaps include fires and injuries that can occur when balloon contact leads to downed power lines. May and June are traditionally the worst months for balloon-related outages, with nearly 33 percent of SCE’s 689 such outages last year occurring in those months. In the past five years, only the 126 balloon outages in June 2012 exceeded last May’s 116. There were 110 outages last June. By comparison, February and March — also high months because of Valentine’s Day — produced 19.4 percent of last year’s balloon outages. With this increase in mind, SCE recommends some other safety tips for handling metallic balloons: • Do not attempt to retrieve a balloon — or any foreign object — tangled in power lines. Instead, call SCE at 800-611-1911 and report the problem. • Never tie a metallic balloon to a child’s wrist. If the balloon comes into contact with electricity, it will travel through the balloon and into the child, possibly causing serious injury or even death. • Never attach streamers to any balloon — latex or metallic. • When done with them, puncture the balloons or cut the knot to keep them from floating away. • If you see a downed line or dangling wire — even if it appears not to be live — don’t touch or approach it and call 911 immediately.
