NAACP Protests City Manager Hiring Process

By Tim Pompey Just as the City of Oxnard is on the verge of hiring a new city manager, the Ventura County Chapter of the NAACP has raised concerns about the transparency of the process as well as the city’s treatment of Interim City Manager Karen Burnham. Calling it “odd” that there seemed to be little or no consideration of Burnham as a viable local candidate, Regina Crawford, First Vice President for the Ventura County Chapter of the NAACP, suggested that the process has not been transparent and open to community input and that one of the announced finalists, Modesto City Manager Grey Nyhoff, will actually end up being hired by default. “We’re not questioning whether he’s qualified or a good candidate,” said Crawford, “but will he be a good manager for the City of Oxnard?” Requesting that the decision about hiring a new city manager be pushed back until at least after the upcoming elections in November, the NAACP’s recommendation would delay a hiring that has already been more than two years in the

20 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I was a little boy! Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan Do you know why some people seem to ‘have it easy’ While others always seem to struggle through life? It’s taken me a while to find the answer to this question... and I’m happy to say I’ve Found It...The answer is: It’s because the people that seem to ‘have it easy’ have done the HARD work, gone through the hard times… and are now enjoying the fruits of their labor. Look... EVERYONE goes through Struggle. EVERYONE goes through pain EVERYONE goes through dark times. But you know what? there is ALWAYS Light at the end of the tunnel. Darkness doesn’t last forever - just look at Planet Earth! After darkness comes light, the light will always find its way through! An arrow can’t go forward and hit its GOAL until it has been

PULLED BACK. So if you’re reading this and you’re not where you want to be in life or you’re struggling in some part of your life right now...KEEP THE FAITH THAT YOU WILL MAKE IT Because you will. In all of my 25 plus years of fulltime ministry The BEST piece of advice I can give you is simply this… FOCUS. FOCUS.FOCUS. There are so many things you can do to be successful but you know what? If you try and do ALL the different things... your success probably won’t ever happen. Instead, what you have to do is FOCUS ON ONE THING. The great apostle Paul said: Philippians 3:13 “No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, THAT my friend is how you become (and more importantly STAY) successful. You must understand that your current circumstances do not determine where you end up. They merely determine where you start If you’re going through hell right now -KEEP GOING THAT’S NOT A GOOD PLACE TO STOP! People like me are here to help you Paid Advertisement

get what you want and inspire you to never give up on your dream. Here are 20 things I wish someone had told me when I was a little boy. 1. Everyone will not understand you ... so stop trying to explain yourself. Keep your vision... and move forward! 2. Everyone will not like you ... so stop trying to be popular. 3. You don’t have to be the person who actually solves every problem. Admit you are not the smartest person, and let your experts be your experts. 4. Spend way more time talking about who you are rather than who you are not. 5. A leader is always an easy target because they are... a leader. So, get over yourself and get on with what God called you to do! 6. When the Holy Spirit presses something into your heart ... don’t ignore Him. 7. Do not expect God’s next step to make sense. 8. You can’t plan a move of God ... but you must be prepared for one! 9. Do not resist something just because you do not understand it! 10.

20 key policymakers and administration officials. “Getting kids prepared for success in school, and then keeping them in the classroom and on track to graduate are two of the most effective ways to keep our streets and communities safe,” said Fight Crime: Invest in Kids California State Director Brian Lee. “We’re fortunate to have so many law enforcement leaders and victim advocates as members who recognize this and work to support policies and funding for programs that help keep kids off the streets and away from crime.” Mem-

bers of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids California called on legislators from both sides of the aisle to increase state funding for programs scientifically proven to steer kids away from crime, such as high-quality early education and dropout prevention strategies that address truancy and chronic absence. It is estimated that a 10-percentage-point increase in high school graduation rates would reduce violent crimes by 20 percent, and could prevent 400 murders and 20,000 aggravated assaults.

Inez Knows

By Inez Lanns In this fast-paced life we live, we are being taken over by the “microwave generation”. Slowing down and taking breaks is not often taught. As a matter of fact, resting can be frowned upon in our society. We teach those around us, and even our children, to go, go, go, to push, push and push. Keep it moving. Always produce. We teach them that they always have to be doing something. It is not surprising that many children today have a difficult time sitting still and desire to be entertained 24/7. Have you noticed that this present day society is always on their phone or

using some type of device? The young people may be playing Call of Duty or NBA 2K14, but the adults are playing Candy Crush all day & night also. I must admit, we adults are just as bad – we work from our phones, tablets and laptops and can be found on the Internet or on social media just as much as they are on their games. We are always on “go”. Yet, we see more people dealing with acute stress and anxiety today than in the past. In life we need to take breaks. A break is definined by some as an interruption of continuity or a brief rest. Some areas of society as set up to accommodate this time of lesuire or rest. Full time employees are required to take two 10/15 minute breaks and sometimes a one hour lunch break. Intermissions are scheduled during theatre productions and performances. Schools are out during the weekend (for the most part). In between seasons, breaks are scheduled (Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall breaks). Even the

bible says that God rested on the 7th day. Whenever there is a completion of something big (i.e. promotion to another grade/level or completion of a project) there is usually a period of rest or celebration. There are reasons we should stop and rest for a moment. To continue to work, press, keep moving, etc. without a break is unhealthy. Doing so will eventually lead to an overload, increased stress or even becoming burnt out. Getting to that point will stop us from producing well. Our bodies were designed in a way where we must get rest in order for us to function well and reach our maximum potential. Getting rest is vital. No matter what you may be doing – whether it’s school, work, business or something else that you are pursuing, make sure you take breaks! You’ll live longer and be stronger. Take a moment even now and breathe. Inhaile, exhaile deeply and rest your body and mind, briefly. If BREAK, See page 12A

OXNARD, CA —Anna Heath, an 11-year member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme, was named the 2014 Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Coastal Area Youth of the Year and received a $2,500 scholarship from the Coastal Area Council to help her with her college expenses. Heath was among seven Club members from Kern, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties vying for the title at the fifth-annual regional competition held March 25 at the Wedgewood Banquet Center in Ventura. She will travel to Redwood City, Calif., the week of May 19 for the California Youth of the Year Competition. Heath will be one of eight members competing for the state title and a $10,000 college scholarship. “We’re all very proud of Anna. She is a passionate, kind and responsible young woman who repre-

sents our Club with great pride and enthusiasm,” said Tim Blaylock, chief professional officer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. “I’d also like to thank our team and those who showed their support and helped guide Anna on this journey, which we hope takes her to the National Youth of the Year competition in Washington D.C.” BGCA’s Youth of the Year program uses 10 selection criteria for the judging process, including contributions to the member’s family, school, community and Boys & Girls Club, as well as overcoming personal challenges and obstacles. Each member is required to write two essays and is evaluated on their moral character, life goals, poise and public speaking. Heath, 17, is a senior at Pacifica High School in Oxnard and BGCOP’s 2014 Youth of the Year.

Heath attributes a lot of her self-confidence and achievements to experiences she has had at the Club. She works hard in school and was in the top 30 percent of her class at the end of her junior year. She has been accepted to four universities. She plans to study kinesiology with the goal of becoming a sports therapist. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme exists to inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. With three fullservice clubs, 13 school program sites and one housing site, the organization is one of the largest of its kind in California, serving more than 9,000 members annually. The group is also the first Boys & Girls Club of its kind to open a site inside a Juvenile Justice Center in the state of California.

Center for Nonprofit Leadership Berry Battle of the Bands Hosts Open House Coming to the Collection

CAMARILLO, CA — The Center for Nonprofit Leadership at the Ventura County Community Foundation invited Ventura County residents interested in training in nonprofit management to a free open house on Thursday, April 10. The Center for Nonprofit Leadership relocated in December 2012 to larger quarters in the VCCF Nonprofit Center — next to the historic Camarillo Ranch House — allowing it to enhance its curriculum tailored to nonprofit staffs and board members. After one year of residency, the Center increased its impact on local nonprofits by nearly 34 percent in

2013, with 855 local nonprofits sending representatives to the Center to learn such skills as writing winning grant proposals, mastering fund-raising strategies and using technology to make their operations more efficient. More than 2,700 nonprofit leaders attended 151 workshops. Center for Nonprofit Leadership faculty, including CNL Director Dena Jenson, were on hand at the open house to share their expertise and answer questions about the Center's curriculum. "This year's open house showcased our faculty and highlighted the valuable workshops planned for

the spring and summer of 2014," Jenson said. "Perfect for nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers or those interested in getting more involved in the nonprofit sector, the event will be an opportunity to ask questions of our expert faculty and staff and tour the VCCF Nonprofit Center." The center will add 45 new workshops to its curriculum in 2014, including courses on advanced social media, financial literacy for board and staff and the importance of planned giving.

Watch Out for Prediabetes Moorpark boy diagnosed with

Almost everyone who has prediabetes goes on to develop type 2 diabetes The battle of the bulge is a lifelong challenge for many women. This is largely because our bodies are designed to store fat more easily than men’s bodies to protect a potential fetus during the childbearing years. We have more enzymes for storing fat and fewer enzymes for burning fat. This struggle with weight gain gets more challenging as we age. Estrogen declines, cortisol (the stress hormone) increases and our metabolism slows, enabling more weight gain. And after age 40, we start to lose muscle mass. Body fat usually replaces that muscle. Being overweight comes with chronic disease risks, such as higher cholesterol and higher blood pressure. These increase the risk of developing other diseases, including diabetes, which is at epidemic levels in the black community. We are almost two times as likely to develop the disease as our white counterparts. Prediabetes: the Diabetes Precursor When blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diabetes, you are said to have prediabetes. Though it’s not full-blown type 2 diabetes, it still endangers your health. With prediabetes, your risk of heart attack

'California polio-like syndrome'

is 1.5 times higher than normal. (It’s two to four times higher with diabetes.) And long-term cardiovascular damage could be happening already. People who develop type 2 diabetes almost always start out with prediabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. [http://www. diabetes.org/are-you-atrisk/prediabetes/] Without preventive measures, prediabetes can become fullblown type 2 diabetes in three to 10 years. But this doesn’t have to happen. Diabetes can be prevented—even if there’s a family history of the disease. [http://blackhealthmatters.com/news/2013/ oct/17/know-your-familymedical-history/] Know Your Numbers To protect yourself from

developing type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, you’ll need to get a blood test. Blood sugar tests are as important for women in mid-life as regular mammograms and bone density screenings. You have prediabetes when: • Hemoglobin A1c levels are 5.7 to 6.4 percent • Fasting blood sugar is 100 to 125 • Two-hour glucose is 140 to 199 after a glucose challenge Beginning at age 45, you should have a blood test every three years so you can track your scores and offset any warning signs of diabetes right away. Start earlier if you: • Have a family history of diabetes • Have high blood pressure or high cholesterol PREDIABETES, See page 12A

MOORPARK, Calif. (KABC) -- A 2-year old boy in Moorpark has become the latest child to be diagnosed with a mysterious virus that public health officials are now calling "California polio-like syndrome." Doctors are stumped as to why there's been a recent increase in the number of those afflicted. The California Department of Public Health knows of at least 20 cases statewide; six of them are in Southern California. As researchers struggle to find a cause and a definitive way to make a diagnosis, the family of 2-yearold Lucian Olivera has decided to come forward in hopes it will help other families. After a year and a half of battling the mysterious illness, the Olivera family is finally getting some answers. In June 2012, Lucian was nearly 11 months old, very adventurous and already walking. He had an ear infection and a lowgrade fever, and then his dad noticed something strange. "He dropped to one side. His left side was leaning to the left," said Israel Olivera. Lucian dragged his legs when he crawled. Three ER visits ended with the family going home and doctors puzzled. Three

Sports News Dodgers' $235 Million Payroll is Kevin Ware Transferring from Largest in MLB Louisville Cardinals

By Ronald Blum NEW YORK — Zack Greinke and the Los Angeles Dodgers have knocked Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees off baseball's payroll perch, part of an offseason spending spree that has the average salary approaching $4 million for the first time. The Dodgers are ending the Yankees' 15-year streak as baseball's biggest spenders and had a projected payroll of $235 million, according to study of all major league contracts by The Associated Press. New York, which last failed to top the payroll rankings in 1998, was a distant second at $203 million. After that, it was another huge gap to Philadelphia at $180 million, followed by Boston at $163 million and Detroit at $162 million. Houston is last at $45 million, up from $27 mil-

Former Oklahoma State star Desmond Mason believes the Northwestern football players' bid for unionization is evidence that college athletes are recognizing that each of them can be "an individual business." A first-round pick in the 2000 NBA Draft who retired after the 2009 season, Mason believes such an awareness by athletes will help college sports. "College sports is in the business of basketball, football, baseball and so on

and so forth. So the players have to start thinking accordingly," Mason said on HuffPost Live. "Not to say it's not going to be confusing and tough at times because that's a whole different world to step into from a union standpoint. But I think it's something that's going to be good for college sports down the road. And it's also going to get guys, players and female players to start thinking about the business side of it all which is going to help them down the road."

Former NFL Player Rips ESPN Commentators

Derrick Ward Former NFL running back Derrick Ward didn't like what he heard from ESPN analysts as they discussed the Philadelphia Eagles' decision to release wide receiver DeSean Jackson. The 33-year-old who played in the NFL from 2004 to 2011 ripped ESPN's Ron Jaworski and Teddy Bruschi for their comments about Jackson during a long Twitter rant. The Eagles' announced their decision to cut Jackson shortly after NJ.com published a report outlining his alleged connections with suspected gangs members. in Los Angeles. To the apparent displeasure of Ward, this report and its possible role in the Eagles' decision to cut ties with Jackson was discussed during ESPN's initial coverage of the development.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A year after his gruesome leg injury in the NCAA tournament, Kevin Ware is transferring from Louisville. Ware became Louisville's rallying point on the way to the national title after he broke his leg in a win over Duke in the finals of the Midwest Regional last season. He had a rod inserted in the leg and tried to come back this season. But he averaged 1.7 points over nine games and eventually took a medical redshirt. He wasn't seen with the team over the past several weeks. The day after Louisville's season ended with a loss to Kentucky, the ju-

LeBron James wants what Miguel Cabrera has. Before the Miami Heat superstar dominated the Pistons in Detroit on Friday night, he told reporters how amazed he was with the massive 10-year, $292 million deal the Tigers gave Cabrera this week. "I wish we didn't have a salary cap," James said, via the Associated Press. Then he said he would opt out of his contract with the Heat if he could get the same deal as the two-time AL MVP. "The best players in each sport should be rewarded. It would be nice to sign a 10year contract for $300 million. I would do it. I would do it for sure." But while the four-time NBA MVP might be a little envious of Cabrera's new deal, the slugger might

If NFL locker rooms aren't ready for an openly gay player in 2014 then they have seemingly regressed since Troy Vincent retired. A five-time Pro Bowl defensive back who last played in 2006, Vincent told reporters at the NFL owners’ meetings on Wednesday that he played with six teammates who were "openly gay in the locker room" during his career. “I’m not going to share their names, but in my 15 years, there were six individuals who were at least openly gay in the locker room,” Vincent said, via Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post. “No problem. From my days in Miami until I ended in Washington, they were just my teammates. Just like my family members. … We ate together, we flew together, they’re roommates in hotel rooms. It was what it was.” Drafted into the NFL out of Wisconsin by the Dolphins in 1992, Vincent spent the first four seasons of his career in Miami before eight campaigns with the Philadelphia Eagles. He would finish his career with stints with the Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins. Vincent's comments come with first-team AllAmerican defensive line-

By Julie Cohen Ann Marie Galbraith’s class could barely contain themselves as they got off the bus. Their destination: UC Santa Barbara and the lab used for the chemistry department’s Fifth-Grade Outreach Program. The students, from Santa Barbara’s Monroe Elementary School, were primed by their own school’s science fair, which took place a week before their visit to UCSB. Ecstatic was the word Galbraith used to describe the students’ enthusiasm. “The type of hands-on experience they get in a UCSB lab is just priceless. It cannot be recreated in a classroom or in a science lab at an elementary school,” she said. The lab hosting the students contains five stations, each focusing on a different aspect of chemistry: dry ice, combustion,

ROSEMEAD, CALIF. -In 2005, Hurricane Katrina uprooted Tr’Vel Lyon from New Orleans to Los Angeles. The traumatic move began a new chapter in the displaced youngster’s life and included a surprising parental order. “They told me you’re now in Los Angeles. Second thing you need to know is you love UCLA and hate USC,” said Tr’Vel, a Gates Millennium Scholar who plans to receive a Ph.D. in educational policy. “My parents love the fact that I’m a diehard UCLA Bruin. They’re so proud.” As a recipient of the Gates Millenium Scholarship through the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the nation’s largest and most effective minority education organization, Tr’Vel is on track to fulfill his dream. Through UNCF, thousands of underrepresented stu-

dents across the U.S., who couldn’t afford to attend college, are able to receive college degrees at UNCFmember institutions thanks

to financial assistance that includes UNCF scholarships and internships. Tr’Vel was one of the student scholars who recently attended the third annual UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball in Los Angeles recently where Ted Craver, chairman, president and CEO of Edison International, was honored for his commitment to education. Under Craver’s leadership, Edison International has invested nearly $500,000 since 2004 to Los Angeles’ UNCF work. In addition, Edison International contributed $11.2 million to support education programs and scholarships to assist underrepresented students pursuing degrees in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields in 2013. “That has been the focus of our educational efforts, our philanthropic efforts, UNCF, See page 12A

Dollar signs attract students to check cashers, but are the high fees being overlooked? One. "However, what they fail to realize is the considerable fees check cashing services charge and how unsafe it is to carry large amounts of cash." Most check cashing services charge exorbitant fees that students might not realize until it is too late -sometimes as high as 6 percent. These fees can be especially high if the check is

for a large amount, such as a student financial aid check. According to Higher One (www.higherone.com), a company that partners with colleges to reduce the use of paper checks by distributing financial aid electronically to students' bank accounts, the average financial aid check is more than $1,400 -- that's a lot of cash to carry around. But many students choose to manage large amounts of cash without going through a bank. In fact, the aforementioned study also showed that 646,000 current college students who reported receiving financial aid also reported having cashed a check outside a bank through a check cashing service or similar business that can charge exorbitant fees. "Financial aid dollars may be the first time students have access to large CASH, See page 12A

(NewsUSA) - Check cashing services may provide convenience for college students when tuition refund checks arrive, but the cons may outweigh the pros. According to a recent study, "The Assessment of Unbanked U.S. College Students and Use of Nontraditional Banking Products," one contributing factor of the popularity of check cashing services among college students is that approximately 3 million American college students don't have checking or savings accounts of their own. In addition, 20 percent of college students avoid the banking system and cash checks, carrying cash. "Often, these students turn to check cashing services to generate cash when they need it -- especially when large tuition refund checks arrive," says Mary Johnson, a financial literacy expert at Higher

AG Harris Issues Statement on Federal Indictment of PG&E

SAN FRANCISCO -Attorney General Kamala D. Harris issued the following statement on the federal grand jury indictment of Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E) for criminal violations of the federal Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act of 1968: “Today’s indictment is an important step in providing justice for the individuals, families and community devastated by the 2010 pipeline explosion and fire in San Bruno.

On September 9, 2010, a portion of Line 132 in San Bruno exploded and resulted in a fire that killed eight people, injured 58 others, and damaged or destroyed numerous homes.

Proposition 30, enacted by voters in 2012 to temporarily raise sales taxes and income taxes on the wealthy, was touted by Gov. Jerry Brown and other proponents as an alternative to making billions of dollars in cuts to state school spending due to state budget deficits. Since its enactment, state Controller John Chiang reported Wednesday, Proposition 30 has pumped about $13 billion into local school district coffers. Chiang unveiled a new website, entitled Track Prop. 30, that allows users to plug in their local school districts and see their total budgets and the portions being financed through Prop. 30. As large as the $13 billion may be, it's still a relatively small portion of K-12

California produces more Peace Corps volunteers than any other state nationwide with 973 residents currently serving, including the 32 volunteers from the 13th Congressional District.

Wilk Bill Passes Unanimously out of Assembly Higher Education Committee

SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Scott Wilk’s, R- Santa Clarita, California Community College Civic Center bill passed unanimously through the Assembly Higher Education Committee. The Civic Center Act allows nonprofit groups to rent K-12 and community college facilities at a direct cost. This means the renters only need pay the direct costs resulting from their use of the facilities such as supplies and operations costs. AB 1906 will expand the definition of “direct costs” to include a proportional share of the cost of maintaining, repairing, or renovating facilities. This bill allows California Community Colleges to recoup maintenance costs from community groups that use their campus facilities. To ensure a fair rate, the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges will develop the proportional share regulations

Black Female Soldiers Criticize Army's New Hairstyle Rules National Civil Rights Museum to Reopen After Major Renovation

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Army is facing criticism for its new appearance and grooming regulations, which some soldiers say unfairly target black women's hair. Army Regulation 670-1 was released with rules on tattoos, hairstyles, grooming and uniforms for soldiers. One of the new regulations, which applies only to women, is a ban on twists, dreadlocks and multiple braids/cornrows that are bigger than a quarter of an inch. Army spokesman Paul Prince told the Army Times that twists and dreadlocks have been barred since 2005, but these regulations go into more detail about specific

By Joe Mandak PITTSBURGH — Three white officers accused in a federal civil rights lawsuit of beating a black performing arts high school student falsely arrested him but didn't use excessive force, a jury found, awarding him $119,000 in damages. The split verdict by the all-white jury of four men and four women had attorneys for 22-year-old Jordan Miles and the officers — David Sisak, Michael Saldutte and Richard Ewing — claiming victory, with neither side completely satisfied. The jurors awarded Miles $101,016.75 in compensatory damages and $6,000 from each officer for punitive damages for acting "maliciously and wantonly." Miles' attorney, Joel Sansone, said he was gratified but didn't understand how the jurors decided on the damages or concluded police were wrong to arrest Miles but not to beat him. "The only thing he wanted to hear was that these officers did the wrong thing," Sansone said of Miles, "and he heard that in the courtroom today." Robert Leight, the attorney for Ewing — who has since left the city police force to work in the

Jordan Miles suburbs — said the verdict "makes no sense." Jurors leaving the courthouse declined to comment, leaving unclear how they viewed the conflicting accounts of what happened the night of Jan. 12, 2010. Miles contends he was talking on his cellphone while walking to his grandmother's when the plainclothes officers rolled up in an unmarked car asking for money, drugs and a gun without identifying themselves. His lawyers argued that "jump out" tactic — which police denied using — is designed to catch suspected drug dealers off-guard. The officers maintain they flashed their badges and yelled "Police!" and stopped Miles only because he appeared to be lurking near a neighbor's home. They claim Miles panicked and ran after being TEEN, See page 12A

Spend Your Tax Refund Wisely

The Five Biggest Turn-offs for Homebuyers

By Jason Alderman Last year the IRS doled out over 110 million income tax refunds averaging $2,803. Another way to look at it is that collectively, Americans overpaid their taxes by nearly $310 billion in 2012. Part of that is understandable: If you don't have enough tax withheld throughout the year through payroll deductions or quarterly estimated tax payments, you'll be hit with an underpayment penalty come April 15. But the flip side is that by overwithholding, you're essentially giving the government an interest-free loan throughout the year. If you ordinarily receive large tax refunds, consider withholding less and instead putting the money to work for you, by either saving or investing a comparable amount throughout the year, or using it to pay down debt. Your goal should be to receive little or no refund. Ask your employer for a new W-4 form and recalculate your withholding allowance using the IRS' Withholding Calculator (at www. irs.gov). This is also a good idea whenever your pay or family situation changes significantly (e.g., pay increase, marriage, divorce, new child, etc.) IRS Publication 919 can guide you through the decision-making process. Meanwhile, if you do get a hefty refund this year, be-

fore blowing it all on something you really don't need, consider these options: Pay down debt. Beefing up credit card and loan payments can significantly lower your long-term interest payments. Suppose you currently pay $120 a month toward a $3,000 credit card balance at 18 percent interest. At that pace it'll take 32 months and $788 in interest to pay it off, assuming no new purchases. By doubling your payment to $240 you'll shave off 18 months and $441 in interest. Note: If you carry balances on multiple cards, always make at least the minimum payments to avoid penalties. The same strategy will work when paying down loans (mortgage, auto, personal, etc.) Ask the lender to apply your extra payment to the loan principal amount, which will shorten the payoff time and reduce the amount of overall interest paid. Just make sure to ask whether there's a prepayment penalty before trying this strategy. Boost your emergency fund. As protection against a job loss, medical emergency or other financial crisis, try to set aside enough cash to cover six to nine months of living expenses. Seed the account with part of your refund and then set up monthly automatic deductions from

By Blanche Evans A lot of sellers don't listen to their real estate agents, so we'll tell you what your agent wants to say, but can't say to you and this is it - your agent can't get you the price you want unless your home is in pristine move-in condition. That means no sticking drawers in the kitchen. No leaning fences. No ruststained plumbing fixtures. We could go on, but maybe we need to make it clear. If you have even one of following "turn-offs," your home won't sell. Buyers can get instantly turned off. Here are their five biggest turn-offs: Overpricing your home If you ignored your agent's advice and listed at a higher price than recommended, you're going to get some negative feedback from buyers. The worst feedback, of course, is silence. That could include

no showings and no offers. The problem with overpricing your home is that the buyers who are qualified to buy your home won't see it because they're shopping in a lower price range. The buyers who do it will quickly realize that there are other homes in the same price range that offer more value. Smells Smells can come from a number of sources - pets, lack of cleanliness, stale air, water damage, and much more. You may not even notice it, but your real estate agent may have hinted to you that something needs to be done. There's not a buyer in the world that will buy a home that smells unless they're investors looking for a bargain. Clutter If your tables are full to the edges with photos, fig-

By Teresa Mears The TV shows make it look so easy. You buy an ugly house, fix it up in a week or two and then sell it for a whopping $100,000 profit. But as anyone who has ever tried it knows, house flipping is a lot harder than it looks. “The math never lies,” says Brandon Turner, senior editor and community manager for BiggerPockets, a website for real estate investors, and a veteran flipper near Olympia, Wash. And often, the math doesn't add up to a sizable payday when you factor in the time, effort, labor and money to execute a flip. But that doesn't keep people from trying. Investors flipped 156,862 single-family homes in 2013, according to RealtyTrac, which defined a flipped home as one bought and sold twice within six months. The number of flips was up 16 percent from 2012 and

32 percent in Phoenix, 17 percent in Tampa, Fla., and Houston, and 15 percent in Denver. In 2013, there was a bigger increase in the flipping of properties that sold for $400,000 or more than in lower-priced properties. “Investors have not lost interest in purchasing and flipping homes. In fact, now that we are seeing home price appreciation, they are more interested than ever,” Sheldon Detrick, CEO of Prudential Detrick/Alliance Realty, which covers Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla., said in a RealtyTrac news release. “The challenge for many would-be flippers in our markets is a shortage of available inventory to flip.” Flippers face four key challenges: • Finding a good house at a low enough price to make the deal work • Finding reliable contractors to do quality work at a reasonable price FLIPPING, See page 12A

your paycheck or checking account going forward. Increase retirement savings. If your debt and emergency savings are under control, add to your IRA or 401(k) accounts, especially if your employer matches contributions; remember, a 50 percent match corresponds to a 50 percent rate of return – something you're not likely to find anywhere else. Finance education. Enroll in college courses or vocational training to gain additional skills in case you lose your job or want to change careers. And ask whether your employer will help pay for job-related education. You can also set money aside for your children's or grandchildren's education by contributing to a 529 Qualified State Tuition Plan. As an incentive, the government allows your contributions to grow tax-free until they're withdrawn. And finally, to check on the status of your refund, go to the IRS's Where's My Refund site.

Spotlight on Health:

By Candy Sagon New statistics from the American Cancer Society show a remarkable 30 percent drop in colorectal cancer cases in the past decade, plus steep declines in the yearly cases among those age 65 and older — mostly due to more people getting screened through colonoscopies or other recommended tests. "We were surprised by the magnitude of the rate decline in just one decade," lead researcher Rebecca Siegel, director of surveillance research for the cancer society, told AARP. The numbers were released at a press conference in Washington, D.C. Colon cancer deaths have also dropped more rapidly within the past decade, the new study showed. Deaths decreased among both men and women in nearly every major racial group from 2001 to 2010, with the biggest declines among nonHispanic whites and black women. These dramatic declines are due to an equally dramatic increase in people getting screened for colon cancer. In 2000, only 19 percent of adults ages 50 to 75 had been screened. That jumped to 65 percent as of last November, according to the Centers for Disease

Funding for a federally administered health insurance program for children could end next year and jeopardize about 8 million youngsters who depend upon it to visit their doctors, emergency rooms and other medical facilities. “As states are adjusting to a variety of health system changes, it is essential that Congress secure the Children’s Health Insurance Program’s future so that states can operate their programs without interruption,” Bruce Lesley, president of the Northwest-based national bipartisan children’s advocacy organization First Focus, wrote in a letter dated March 13 to lawmakers and co-signed by more than 400 local, state and national organizations. While about 8 million are enrolled nationwide in the program – known as CHIP – more than 81,000 D.C. residents rely on the insurance. CHIP provides health

Colon Cancer Cases Drop

Control and Prevention. But that still means that about 1 in 3 adults has not been screened. And the cancer society estimates that this year there will be nearly 137,000 new cases of colorectal cancer and more than 50,000 deaths. "That's why we have started a national push to achieve an 80 percent screening rate by 2018," Richard C. Wender, M.D., chief cancer control officer for the cancer society, said in an interview. Some 40 percent of colorectal cancer cases could be prevented if people underwent regular colonoscopy screening, according to a large, longterm study released last year by the Harvard School of Public Health. Regular screening also means that the cancer can be caught early, when the five-year

survival rate is 90 percent. The more advanced the cancer, the lower the survival rate. The colonoscopy is considered the gold standard for detecting either cancer or precancerous polyps that can be snipped off before they cause problems. To view these potential trouble spots, the doctor inserts a thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera into the colon. Unfortunately, the only way a doctor can get a clear picture is if the colon has been cleansed using laxatives the day before — admittedly the biggest downside to the procedure. Wender agrees that the laxative prep is "annoying." "But it's not painful. And the colonoscopy itself is always accompanied by medication that makes it comfortable and painfree," he added.

Growing & Preserving Your Wealth

Ever since the financial crisis of 2008, many pundits and experts have openly doubted the viability of achieving the American dream. With homeownership, job opportunity and retirement security in decline, an Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor poll shows that most Americans agree with what the experts have said. Seven in 10 think that tomorrow’s adults – today’s kids – will have less financial security than adults today. “There are several longterm issues we need to address, including our estimated $17.3 trillion debt, a legacy that our children are poised to inherit; but I think the United States will be stable for the next 10 years, and maybe longer if we get our financial house in order,” says Stephen Ng, founder and president of Stephen Ng Financial Group, (www.stephenngfg.com). “Many Americans who’ve worked their entire lives for a comfortable, if not luxurious, retirement want to know their money will be there – that’s their dream.” Ng is an international financial planner with certifications in 19 states. He’s passionate about teaching sound wealth practices to both clients and his com-

munity. Here are three important tips every pre-retiree and retiree should know to help preserve their wealth. • Go to an independent retirement-planning advisor. Financial planning can be confusing. For most retirees who are not professionals, the numbers, rules and terminology can seem like a foreign language. An independent advisor, who is licensed in multiple products – insurance, annuities and more – allows for a higher degree of objectivity, tailoring options for a client’s specific needs. He or she will not be bound to a corporate agenda or limited in their knowledge. Also, talk to the person who will be the architect of your financial future. Find out his or her values. How do they feel about their job? Are they patient in explaining your options? Do you trust your advisor? • Pre-retirees: know your start-date options for retirement. Be aware that in most cases, withdrawals from tax-deferred retirement plans before age 59½ may be subject to a 10 percent federal income tax penalty. The latest date to begin required minimum distributions is usually April 1 of the year after you turn age 70½. In most cas-

es, withdrawals are taxed as ordinary income. There are 10 common planning options, some of which are funded by employers. They are the defined benefit pension; money purchase pension; profit-sharing plan; savings plan; employee stock ownership plan; tax-sheltered annuities, or 403(b) plans; individual retirement accounts; selfemployed plans; simplified employee pensions; Savings Incentive Match Plans for Employees; and annuity contracts. • Make sure you feel good about your annuity. An annuity is a contract with an insurance company in which you make one or more payments in exchange for a future income stream in retirement. The funds in an annuity accumulate tax-deferred, regardless of which type of annuity you choose. Fixed annuity contracts are issued with guaranteed minimum interest rates. Although the rate may be adjusted, it should never fall below a guaranteed minimum rate specified in the contract. Keep in mind that annuity guarantees are subject to the claims-paying ability of the insurance company and contain fees WEALTH, See page 12A

Children’s Health Program in Jeopardy

Courtesy photo coverage to children in families with incomes too high to qualify for Medicaid, but who cannot afford private coverage. The program, which started in 1997, provides federal matching funds to states for the coverage and federal spending climbed to $13 billion in 2013, approximately 8 percent more than the previous year.

“If the CHIP funding cliff is not addressed, important gains in children’s coverage would be lost,” Lesley said. “While the Affordable Care Act holds great promise for the millions of Americans who have lacked an affordable coverage option, especially uninsured adults, it will take JEOPARDY, See page 12A

wetting, do what you can to make nights, mornings, and cleanups as easy as possible on yourself and on your child. If you aren’t already doing so, decrease your workload by using disposable pants, waterproof pads, vinyl mattress covers, etc. Strategy #2: Get the whole family on board. This isn’t just your child’s challenge to overcome— he’ll need your continued

help, support and encouragement. Strategy #3: Establish a bedtime routine. Some children are more likely to experience a pattern of dryness when they have a regular nightly routine. Strategy #4: Refrain from punishment. It is crucial to realize that kids do not wet their beds voluntarily. Bedwetting can be caused by a multitude of factors, including genetics, small functional bladder capacity, food sensitivities, high nighttime urine production, and even constipation—but a wet spot in the morning is not a result of your child being too “lazy” to get out of bed. Strategy #5: Invest in an alarm. …a bedwetting alarm, that is! Unlike conventional alarm clocks, bedwetting alarms don’t ring at a pre-set time. A moisture sensor triggers TIPS, See page 12A

Tips to Turn Your Child’s Bedwetting Conflict Into Confidence

Children feel victorious when they have big accomplishments like staying dry throughout the day. With summer just around the corner, your child might not feel comfortable attending overnight social events like camps and sleepovers because bedtime becomes a battle rendering them powerless from defeat. But, according to Renee Mercer, a pediatric nurse practitioner and specialist of enuresis for over 25 years, it doesn’t have to be. In Mercer’s new book, Seven Steps to Nighttime Dryness: A Practical Guide for Parents of Children with Bedwetting, Second Edition, she arms parents with nine strategies to help their children turn their bedwetting troubles into triumphs. Strategy #1: Make your job easier now. As you ease into the steps that will help your child stop bed-

Forget Stealing Credit Cards, Now Amazon to Release FREE Hackers Just Straight-Up Blackmail You Netflix Competitor

While hackers tried to get rich by stealing millions of credit cards from Target, other cybercriminals have quietly tried another method to make a quick buck: Asking companies to pay them to go away. In recent weeks, two companies have publicly described their experiences with what has become a popular hacker tactic: cyber extortion. Cybercriminals have threatened to disclose sensitive data or cripple websites unless their victims pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars in ransom. Like kidnappers and terrorists, cyberciminals have been demanding ransoms for years. But cases of digital extortion appear to have grown more frequent in recent months and involved more high-profile victims, according to Matthew Prince, chief executive of the security firm CloudFlare. “The brazenness of the attacks has increased and they are targeting household names,” Prince said in an interview. Last month, an unidentified hacker threatened to cripple the website of Meetup, a social networking site with 16 million members, unless the company paid $300 in ransom. Then employees at

Basecamp, a software development firm, also got an email from an unidentified hacker who made a similar threat unless the startup paid “a relatively low amount in Bitcoin,” according to David Heinemeier Hannson, a partner at the company. Both companies refused to pay. In response, the hackers crashed Basecamp's service for two hours and Meetup's site for 24 hours. There are no statistics on how often hackers try to extort their victims because few companies ever admit it. The rare victims who do go public say they refused to pay because it would have set a dangerous precedent. Many victims do pay, albeit quietly. More than $5 million is extorted from

hacking victims each year, according to Symantec, the cybersecurity firm. In most cyber extortion cases, victims' websites are knocked offline for about 15 minutes. Then their site comes back online and they get an email from a hacker offering to stop the attack if the victim wires money. “Any victim that is perceived as being able to pay is a potential target of an extortion threat,” Aquilina James Aquilina, a former federal cybercrime prosecutor said. But he said victims should contact law enforcement instead. “I’ve never heard of a company actually surviving a cyber extortion by paying the money,” he said. “It just delays the inevitable. It doesn’t make it go away.”

By Tyler McCarthy Pinterest users should be aware of a recent hack that will fill up boards with several weight loss ads that are almost exclusively im-

ages of women’s butts. TechCrunch's Catherine Shu first reported on the scam and said her co-editor Hermione Way noticed her account had been overtaken

by several booty pics. Several other people were apparently affected as well. “Our systems were alerted to some incidents of spam yesterday evening. These reports did not come in at a large scale. We began working on cleaning up and placing the accounts in safe mode immediately. The accounts have since been secured,” a Pinterest representative told The Huffington Post. A rep told the Daily Mail that users have the power to remove the photos on their own at any time. Pinterest has also urged users to change their passwords as a precaution. “When we see that compromised e-mail credentials are being used to attempt access to Pinterest accounts, we immediately notify the at-risk Pinner and remind them to reset their password. The best precaution is to use a strong and unique password that is not used on other sites," told HuffPost. It seems Pinterest's popularity has made the site an increasingly larger target for hackers. As TechCrunch points out, earlier this month the Better Business Bureau issued a scam alert to warn users of the various ways in which hackers can infiltrate Pinterest users' personal accounts. However, these sorts of hacks have been making headlines for several years. In 2012, the New York Times reported that security software maker McAfee discovered several moneymaking scams aimed at Pinterest users. A number of other incidents were also discovered that year.

The move would allow customers to obtain Amazon streaming services without purchasing Amazon Prime, the $99 annual membership service that gives users access to Amazon's library of streaming television shows and films, in addition to free two-day shipping. Sources familiar with Amazon's plan also indicated to the WSJ that the service would offer free music videos. Such a free service would more directly pit the e-commerce giant against Google's YouTube and Netflix, which charges $7.99 per month for unlimited streaming.

LOS ANGELES — A week after saying it was justified in snooping through a blogger's Hotmail account to track down a leaker of company software, Microsoft has changed course, saying it will refer such matters to law enforcement starting immediately. The reversal, explained by general counsel Brad Smith in a blog post Friday, follows last week's revelation that it searched through emails and instant messages of a blogger who Microsoft believed had received proprietary code illegally. The search, in 2012, led

to Alex Kibkalo, a Russian native who worked for Microsoft as a software architect in Lebanon. Microsoft turned over the case to the FBI in July 2013.

Smith now says the company "will not inspect a customer's private content ourselves" and will refer the matter to law enforcement if action is needed.

By Alexis Kleinman It's not often that you read the words "fun" and "glitch" in the same sentence, but a newly discovered glitch in the recently updated software for iPhones and iPads is actually pretty fun. Apple's phones or tablets come with certain built-in apps, including rarely used programs like Stocks and Newsstand. Until now, you couldn't keep them from taking up valuable screen space on your devices, whether or not you've ever opened them. But now, an Apple expert on the iDeviceHelpus YouTube page found a glitch in iOS 7.1 that lets you hide those useless apps. Goodbye, clutter! We tested it out, and it works. You need to download the latest version of iOS 7.1 to begin. Here's how you do it. First, find the apps you'd like to hide and put them all into one folder by dragging them on top of one another. Then, make sure the dock at the bottom of your iPhone or iPad is completely full with icons. Also, make sure there are no other folders on the home screen and that it, too, is full of icons. Then press down on an app icon to turn on "wobble mode,"

wherein all the icons wiggle around. Here comes the tricky part: making a folder within a folder. Create the first folder by dragging any two app icons on top of each other. Then quickly drag the folder of unwanted apps into that folder. It may take a few tries. Then you'll have a folder within a folder. Remove the rest of the apps from the larger folder, so that the only thing in the larger folder is the smaller folder of useless apps. When you go back to the home screen the folder will look empty. Now make sure your home screen is full and has no other folders except for the empty-looking one you just made. Go into the folder again and pull the small-

er folder out to the home screen. It should disappear. Now all of those pesky apps are nowhere to be found. Unfortunately, although the apps are no longer taking up space on your screen, they're still taking up space in your device. When you look at your data usage, you'll see that the apps you've hidden are still using data. Also, if you turn your iPhone or iPad off, the apps you sent away will return when you turn it back on. In all likelihood, Apple will nix this awesome glitch with its next iOS update. Mobile software makers like to make it impossible to delete preinstalled "bloatware" apps, the idea being that you'll want to use them eventually.

and slide-to-unlock technology. Juries have already awarded Apple nearly $1 billion in restitution. Regardless, Apple is headed back to court again at the end of the month, this time to dispute the operating platforms of newer model Samsung phones. Its demand this go-around: a $40 royalty per phone or tablet sold, which some experts have called “objective insanity.” It doesn’t take an economist to forecast the impact of such a levy; the fee will get passed along to consumers in the form of higher device costs. Unable, or unwilling, to compete in emerging markets, Apple appears resolved to instead play outside the lines and drive up the costs of more affordable devices, which have gained significant traction in recent years. According to a Pew Research study, African American and Hispanic consumers are more likely to access the internet through their phone than others. Smartphone ownership is growing among this demographic as well, due largely to more affordable devices. Last year devices costing less than $200 made up 43 percent of all purchases, more than twice the level of 2011, according to the Internation-

al Data Corporation (IDC). Coupled with greater access to broadband and wireless, the drop in smartphone prices is helping close the digital divide along racial lines. Studies show African-Americans have about a 15 percent greater ownership of smartphones than the general public and spend more time online with them. More than 70 percent own an Android phone, compared with less than 60 percent of all consumers. Increasing mobile usage rates alone has important implications for small businesses. A Neilson study last year found African Americans are more likely to make purchases using their phone and spend twice as much time at personal hosted websites than any other group. This has a very real impact on our small business members who have invested in websites that can handle online sales. Apple finds itself falling behind in this digital revolution as rival phones running the Android operating system now dominate the market. One might assume Apple’s answer to APPLE, See page 12A

An Attention Span Beyond Flight 370 media might focus more on gun violence, its sources and possible solutions to end senseless violence. Of course, that might anger the National Rifle Association whose specious slogan – guns don’t kill, people do – ignores the harm done by the proliferation of guns in our nation. President Obama has challenged our nation’s educators to increase the percentage of young people attending and graduating from college, so that we might better compete with other industrialized countries. People applaud at these sentiments, but these educational goals get little media attention. Yet, such coverage would raise an important issue and, perhaps, push us toward solutions. I do not begrudge the extensive coverage of Flight 370. The disappearance of a plane is both a mystery and a tragedy. But the excessive coverage of Flight 370 reminds us of the power of the media. If something is repeated enough, and repeatedly enough, it wiggles its way into our consciousness. Thus, the pilots have been tried and convicted by media speculation, without anyone actually knowing what happened. What if such repeti-

History is often made by leaders who make a consequential difference in quality of life of people. The world has now witnessed the historic meeting between the first African American to serve as president of the United States and the first Latin American to be Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met recently at the Vatican in the heart of Rome. At 77, Pope Francis, who was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is 25 years older than President Obama The 266th Pope is easily the most powerful religious leader in the world, the head of more than 1 billion Roman Catholics throughout the world. In the U.S. alone, there are more than 3 million African American Catholics. Though considerable, that’s just a fraction of the 270 million-plus Catholics of African descent across the Diaspora. With a deep political divide in the U.S., President Obama remains the most powerful political leader in the world. Even the cynical establishment U.S. media in the U.S. praised the ObamaFrancis dialogue as being crucial to the world discourse on income inequality, hunger and poverty,

health care, immigration reform and the fundamental human rights of all. A CBS News correspondent remarked, “A visibly energized President Obama held a nearly hour-long audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican, expressing his great admiration for the pontiff and inviting him to visit the White House.” Obama is acutely aware of his low standing in public opinion polls. There is a scripture that seems particularly apt in this case: “A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” {Mark 6:4, KJV} This is not to suggest to President Obama is a prophet. Rather, the point is that the president’s leadership can be properly described as prophetic as he pushes the socioeconomic envelope on such issues of equal justice and fairness for all people. And it is in this type of setting – the most powerful religious person in the world sitting down with the most powerful political person in the world – that we are reminded of the enormous responsibility the president carries as a national and international fixture. Many people, especially “in his own country, and among his own kin,” would like the president to adopt an even stronger

posture opposing various voter suppression schemes and pushing harder to close the income inequality gap. But that’s a tall order than cannot be accomplished in two presidential terms. This is a good time to remind ourselves, as a leading sociologist at the Catholic University of America did recently when he said: “A good deal of the economic agenda of President Obama and of the Democratic Party is consonant with Catholic social teaching.” I would expand that by saying it is also consonant with the teachings of other religious groups. While President Obama’s meeting with Pope Francis was originally scheduled for only 30 minutes, it lasted almost an hour. At the end, Pope Francis gave President Obama a “strategic theological” gift. It was a copy of Pope Francis’ papal mission statement, “The Joy of the Gospel,” that has a sharp focus on “decrying a global economic system that excludes the poor.” President Obama thanked the Pope for the gift and promised to read it MEETING, See page 11B

Julianne Malveaux If you missed the news about the disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370 over the Indian Ocean, you must have been buried in sand. For three weeks, we have been bombarded with theories – was it terrorism? Pilot error? Something else? Now the story has evolved. Were pieces of the plane found? Is everyone dead? How do the families of the presumed dead feeling? (This is a really stupid question. How does the clueless reporter asking such a question think the people feel?) CNN may well have been called MPN – the Missing Plane Network. An evening of watching covered the same angle with a different host and guests. Some of the focus was certainly understandable, but other networks managed to find news of things going on that did not involve Flight 370. Still, the prevalent and relentless emphasis on the missing plane was excessive. Couldn’t some of the airtime granted Flight 370 have been used for equally critical matter? There were 239 people on that plane, and there were more than 300 killed in 2013. I’m not suggesting an equivalency in the two types of tragedies, but I am suggesting that the

Apple Strays from its Roots

Apple’s success story is a familiar one: a group of misfits who grew an unlikely startup from the confines of a small garage into the world’s largest business. From the company’s iconic logo to the off-beat leadership of the late Steve Jobs, Apple’s public image has always invited the idea that it holds an equal bite at the apple for everyone. It seems quintessentially American – except it isn’t – and the tech giant’s efforts to eliminate its competition are perilous for the African American community. In recent years, revelations about Apple’s business practices – from evasive tax schemes to protracted courtroom battles – have gradually pulled back the veneer on a company that leaders from Washington to Wall Street have begun to question. Digging in its heels against shifting market dynamics, Apple has shown a troubling side, one prepared to disrupt competition and trample consumer interests. This month, a U.S. district judge rejected Apple’s request for a permanent injunction on Samsung smartphone sales on grounds of patent infringement. The ruling marks the latest chapter in a three year courtroom battle over features like autocomplete

tion were used to highlight some of our nation’s most serious social and economic challenges. What if we could get a couple of networks, just for a week, focus on reading proficiency, or the environment, or poverty and inequality? Perhaps we can’t focus on these issues because we can’t agree on their causes, not when the likes of Rand Paul are running around excoriating the poor and the unemployed every chance he gets. Or with, despite this long and frigid winter, the global warming deniers won’t give any ground. The media is used to rivet attention toward an issue or challenge. Unfortunately, it has rarely been used for good, although it could be. What if viewers demanded that there is some focus on essential issues? What if there were a media campaign to encourage children to read more, and encourage parents and teachers to encourage this reading. Such a campaign might include paid advertising, but much of it might be driven by news stories. FLIGHT 370, See page 11B

I have found myself getting a bit nervous as I hear various U.S. politicians rattling their swords in response to the Russian aggression in the Crimea. Before we lose our minds in this crisis let’s consider a few things. First, there was a revolution in the Ukraine that, no matter how justifiable, put into office a new government that from the beginning was quite hostile to Russia and to ethnic Russians in the Ukraine. Second, ever since the final years of the Soviet Union, the USSR and later Russia have pulled back militarily from Eastern Europe, only to see an expansion of NATO that the U.S.A. promised would not happen. An expansion, it should be added, that has been pressing up against Russia’s borders. Third, Western Europe has a demonstrated history of provoking or encouraging secessionist movements, as it did in the former Yugoslavia, and/or encouraging smaller nations to provoke Russia, as it did in the case of the Georgian Republic. Now, none of this excuses Russian aggression. None of this lets Russian

President Putin off the hook for inflaming ethnic nationalism in Russia and the Ukraine. But what this does help us to understand are the conditions in which this aggression took place and that the West, specifically Western Europe and the U.S. are not blameless. The United States has been willing to engage in all sorts of military aggression within the Western Hemisphere when the ruling elite believed that its interests were in danger, whether that was against Haiti in the 19th century through today; Cuba; or the countless interventions in the Caribbean and Central America. Despite this history, U.S. politicians have been acting as if they have never even heard the word “aggression” in the context of U.S. foreign policy. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), for example, has offered rhetoric that would lead the uninformed to believe that U.S. foreign policy has been guided by nothing but sweetness in comparison to the policies of the Russians. I believe that Senator McCain, and the Obama administration for that matter, need to reread a bit of the history of U.S. foreign policy.

Before we hear any more discussion of sanctions and military force in connection with the Russian/Ukrainian crisis, it is instead time for a different approach. There needs to be an actual honest broker who starts speaking with both sides to pull everyone back from the brink. If that is not the United Nations, then perhaps it can be an assortment of countries from Europe and the global South. “Discussions” and “negotiations,” in either case, should be the watch-words. In the meantime, class is in session for our politicians on the history of U.S. foreign policy. Anyone ever heard of the works of Howard Zinn, for instance?

SAFE From page 1A by sexual assault. Dr. Dineen-Wimberly knows about sexual assault from her own personal experience. “I know what it’s like to go through things and not have a voice in the military,” she said. But even more moving was the time she spent listening to many of her military students share their own struggles. “I had students in class who told me about their own experience with sexual assault and having to hide it.” Despite all the recent public attention given to the problem of vets and sexual assault, she believes that the problem in the military has gotten worse rather than better. This is because of the legal implications for vets who report assault. “Individual active duty members feel less safe to seek help for their troubles or to even be allowed to talk to anyone else except the advocate that’s been assigned to their case,” Dineen-Wimberly explained. “Structurally there are even fewer avenues for them to be open or to speak about what they have suffered.” Dineen-Wimberly compares treatment for sexual assault to any other type of treatment for a physical injury. “If you were hit by a car and broke every bone in your body,” she said, “you probably wouldn’t be surprised by the pain. If you underwent treatment by enduring a body cast, visiting a physical therapist, and eventually exercising those weakened muscles, you’d arguably be content or even grateful to feel the occasional aches of a rainy day.” She wonders, then, why it’s so difficult for victims of assault to seek out the same kind of care and treatment. “Why is that we accept as natural the imperfections of physical healing, but suffer self-loathing when unresolved emotional pain associated with trauma remains?” Safe Groups is an attempt by Dineen-Wimberly to bring the best of care to assault victims. She has a forensic nurse as one of her advisors and has included on her board a clinical psychologist. She is bringing in volunteer facilitators specially trained to deal with these issues. “They are all survivors,” she said. “They will provide a therapeutic and anonymous approach similar to a general 12-step group. The facilitators will all have experience helping other individuals.” She further emphasizes that the group is open to everyone, including members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transvestite (LGBT) community. “We realize that sexual violence is not gender specific,” said Dineen-Wimberly, “nor is it related to sexual orientation, so members of the LGBT community are welcome.” The initial Safe Groups forums will be held at the Café on A, 438 South A Street, in downtown Oxnard. The first meeting for women is scheduled for Sunday, May 4 at 2:00 p.m. The second meeting for men and will be on held on Saturday, May 24 at 2:00 p.m. Security will be provided.

BREAK From page 2A you are like me and have a very full schedule, schedule in some down time. Your body needs it. Your mind also needs it. It’ll be unfamiliar and uncomfortable at first, but you can begin to train yourself to rest and relax. Teach those around you and your children how to slow down “and smell the flowers” as they say, as you learn to do the same. This will only lead to functioning better as a refreshed person, which will result in your being a healthy, happier person and enable you to do a better job at whatever it is that you do.

ATTORNEY From page 2A who receive high-quality early education and care are more likely to graduate from high school and less likely to ever become involved in crime. Fight Crime: Invest in Kids California members asked lawmakers to support SB 837, a bill authored by Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg that would make early education available to all 4-year-olds by expanding the state’s transitional kindergarten program. Fight Crime: Invest in Kids California members also asked lawmakers to support AB 1866 (Bocanegra), which would help identify early warning signs for dropout by tracking school attendance in CALPADS, the state’s longitudinal student data system. California in one of just four states that does not track individualized school attendance. For kids already involved in the juvenile justice system, intensive family therapies, such as Functional Family Therapy (FFT) and Multisystemic Therapy (MST), have been shown to cut re-arrests by as much as 50 percent. The Mentally Ill Offender Crime Reduction (MIOCR) program used to support these evidenced-based therapy programs, yet funding for the program was eliminated several years ago. Members of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids California encouraged policymakers to support SB 1054 (Steinberg) which would restore the MIOCR program and provide $50 million for MIOCR grants, evenly divided between juveniles and adults.

PREDIABETES From page 3A • Had gestational diabetes [http://blackhealthmatters.com/ news/2014/jan/16/task-forcerecommends-screening-womengestational-/] • Gave birth to a baby weighing more than 9 pounds Preventive Measures To prevent prediabetes, keep your weight in check. You don’t need to go all dramatic and drop half your body weight; losing just 10 to 15 pounds can make a big difference. You can slash your risk of diabetes in half if you: Eat a low-carbohydrate, low-fat diet. Choose mostly fresh fruits and vegetables, whole-grain breads and cereals, skim milk and yogurt, and lean meats. Limit soda, sweets, snack foods, fruit juices and alcohol. Do moderate-to-intense exercise 35 minutes a day, five days a week. Walk briskly, swim, dance, lift weights or do other activities that keep you moving. Don’t obsess about your weight. Refrain from hopping on the scale every day. Just weigh yourself once a week and track your progress on a calendar. Try to do this on the same day and time every week (for example, Tuesday mornings). Set easily attainable goals. Say, “I will walk for 15 minutes every day” instead of “I will lose 30 pounds.” Celebrate with a non-food treat when you reach your goals. Build on your successes by adding to your goals each week. Medications can lower your blood sugar, but lifestyle changes work best, lowering your chance of developing fullblown diabetes by more than 50 percent. Additionally, they can improve your blood pressure and reduce your overall cholesterol—all while helping you look and feel better than ever! And who doesn’t want that? MOORPARK From page 3A the Child Development Center at Simi Valley Hospital is helping Lucian work around his left leg. “There’s no nerve innervation into the muscle so therefore it ends up atrophying,” said Karen Newsome with the Child Development Center. The goal is to strengthen his right leg so Lucian will learn to stand on his own and walk with a cane instead of a walker. And while Lucian’s parents are heartbroken, their son reminds them he’s going to be OK. “When you’re just having a moment of down, he’ll go, ‘Momma, I love you more than a camel.’ And you just melt,” said Erin. “We have to remain strong for him.” UC San Francisco and Stanford researchers will present the latest information in April at a meeting of the American Academy of Neurology. http://abclocal.go.com CHEMISTRY From page 5A UCSB’s Fifth-Grade Chemistry Outreach Program, now in its 15th year, is designed to nourish natural curiosity in science and to stimulate an interest in science education. The program focuses on fifth-graders because the California physical science standards for that grade include many advanced and complex scientific concepts grounded in chemistry. These standards provide an opportunity for students to experience creative scientific thinking. More than 1,400 fifthgrade students, teachers and parent volunteers participate in the UCSB program each year. UNCF From page 5A for many, many years now,” said Craver. “We get involved with the community, get involved with high schools, get involved with state universities, community colleges. We’re obviously getting involved with UNCF as a true partner in trying to extend STEM education to all of the employees that will hopefully be a part of Edison, as well as all the communities we serve.” Dr. Michael L. Lomax, UNCF’s president and CEO, praised Craver and Edison International for investing in America’s future by helping students get to and through college via organizations like UNCF. UNCF provides financial assistance to 37 private, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and awards 10,000 scholarships and internships to students from low- and moderate-income families to attend more than 900 colleges and universities across the country. “Edison International is a valued UNCF partner and shares our goal of expanding access to a college education,” said Lomax. “Ted Craver’s commitment to

his company is matched by his commitment to UNCF and the students we serve and the education we help to provide.” CASH From page 5A sums of money,” says Johnson. “Non-traditional students may have had bad experiences with accounts in the past, and younger adults may not have had as much experience with banks.” No matter why students don’t use bank accounts now, the benefits of using them include smart money management because you can keep track of spending with transaction records. It’s important to educate students about how bank accounts can be as quick and convenient as a check cashing service, but safer with FDIC insurance and fraud protection, Johnson notes.

Miles denies even carrying the bottle, which officers said they threw away because it wasn’t evidence of the prowling, assault and resisting arrest charges they filed against Miles. A city magistrate didn’t find the police version credible and dismissed those charges weeks later. Sisak’s attorney, James Wymard, believes that’s why jury found the officers wrongly arrested Miles.

And we mean all the math. For example, if you calculate a potential flip this way: Buy a house for $100,000, spend $20,000 on improvements, sell it for $150,000 and earn $30,000 profit, you clearly haven’t done all the math that’s needed. What about the cost of borrowed money and the cost of selling the house? What if the contractor discovers, once he starts the work, that half the plumbing lines are rotted? What about the cost of insurance, utilities and property taxes while you own the house? You must dig below the surface-level figures to paint a complete and accurate picture of the flipping opportunity. Only then can you determine whether it’s a sound financial move for you.

Instead, the company has doubled down, mechanically rehashing and rolling out the same products. There is only a handful of Apple smartphone models on the market today, while there are several dozen smartphones that are equipped with the Android operating system. In fact, Apple hasn’t shipped a new format phone since 2012. The average price difference between an iPhone and an Android phone has grown to $374, and an Android now costs half as much as an iPhone. So, if not through greater innovation or competitive pricing, how does Apple hope to hold its own in the marketplace? It appears by closing down its competitors’ markets through courtroom litigation. Simply put: if you can’t beat ‘em, ban ‘em. Starting in 2010, Apple noticeably stepped up its litigation against others. The company recently appealed the court’s rejection of the ban Samsung phone sales (it was the second time the court dismissed the bid), likely as a grounds for further action against its competitor’s newer model phones. Apple’s latest charge, that Samsung should pay a $40 fee per device, promises to drive up costs and leave consumers in the lurch if approved. The biggest impact of such a decision will fall on the shoulders of lower income consumers, who will effectively be priced out of the marketplace and then their Internet access could be limited. Equal opportunity is tenet of the America promise. In today’s increasingly connected world, an individual’s location, race or income should not determine whether or not he or she has access to online information and resources.

Evelyn Lozada Fires Back at Wendy Williams' New Michael Jackson Album Coming Offensive Baby Comment Five Years After His Death

Last weekend reality star, Evelyn Lozada and fiancé-Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Carl Crawford welcomed their newborn baby boy, Carl Crawford Jr. in Arizona. And among the many people who sent... um, "well wishes" for the couple’s family addition was talk show diva, Wendy Williams, who acknowledged the news this week during her "Hot Topics" segment on the "Wendy Williams Show." “Evelyn gave birth to a cash register…I mean… a baby boy with her fiancé, the $142 million Carl Crawford,” Williams announced to her studio audience before apologizing, “I didn’t mean to make that cash register joke, but you see why it’s easy to be said. Evelyn, girl, congratulations.” Apparently, Williams’ sly celebratory “cash register” comments didn’t bode too well with the 38-year-old “Basketball Wives” star, who responded via her personal Twitter account. You know @WendyWilliams, I never bother anyone. I even bought

Evelyn Lozada you a beautiful bouquet of flowers congratulating your broadway debut... During her show, Williams went on, taking the jab a bit further. “And Carl, like a lot of sports players and a lot of artists, he’s not a bad looking man, but certainly wasn’t getting the likes of an Evelyn Lozada if he wasn’t playing baseball, you know what I mean,” she added. “Like she upgraded him, and now that she had the baby, he’s upgrading her…Here’s what I’m thinking, Ev. You should become involved in a lot of charity work.

Wendy Williams And also, talk to your man about opening you up another Dulce…except Dulce Beverly Hills, not Dulce Miami.” But while Wendy advised Lozada to open up a Beverly Hills location of her coveted Miami women's shoe boutique, Dulce Couture, the reality star fired back, revealing some allegations against Williams’ husband, Kevin. Since u want me 2 open Dulce n LA. Maybe ur man can come 2 that store & purchase shoes 4 another woman like he did @ my Miami store. Bloop!

Why Beyonce Was Crying Onstage

By Madeline Boardman After months spent running the world on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Beyonce finally wrapped the tour in Portugal on Thursday evening. The Grammy-winning singer kicked off the concert series last April in Serbia, making her final stop at Lisbon's MEO Arena, and breaking down onstage when she spoke to fans about her time on the road. "I want a [spotlight]. I want them to see me. If you all don’t know, tonight makes 132 shows," Beyonce said, getting emotional as she addressed the crowd. "Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show. We started a year ago and I want to say this

Beyonce has been such a journey." In the year since Mrs. Carter hit the road for her tour, she released her surprise, platinum-certified self-titled album, celebrated her fifth anniversary with her husband

Jay Z, and made stops in four continents, selling out shows in major cities across the globe. "In the past year, we’ve been through so much together," the singer continued. "The Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows. When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet." "I just want you to know that I am so lucky," Beyonce said, beginning to cry. "I’m giving y’all an ugly cry. Thank y’all again. Thank you for allowing me to have a career. And when I fall, you lift me up. When I’m hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light. I dedicate this song to you guys."

Music fans will get to hear new Michael Jackson music in May, nearly five years after the singer's death in 2009. Titled "XSCAPE," the record will arrive on May 13 via Epic Records and in conjunction with Jackson's estate. From the Epic Records website: After mining by the Estate of Jackson’s archives, L.A. Reid was granted unlimited access to the treasures spanning four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals. Reid then teamed up top producers to “contemporize” the songs while retaining Jackson’s essence and integrity, creating the best music you’ve never heard. The list of producers include global hitmakers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain. According to a press release, "XSCAPE" will feature eight new songs, including the album's title track.

Alicia Keys Recruits Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell for Explosive New Track

Alicia Keys teamed up with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer for "It's On Again," her contribution to the upcoming film "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Produced by Pharrell, the song opens with Lamar fiercely spitting through a wall of distorted riffs, continuing the rapper's recent crossover expedition. After about 40 seconds, the song takes a sharp turn to Pharrell's more recent penchant for disco-tinted beats, Keys unleashes her vocals over the top. "I'm very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer," Keys said in a press release announcing the song's release. "This is the next chapter in the 'Spider-Man' legacy and we really feel ‘It’s On Again’ captures the experience, the story -- and most im-

Alicia Keys portantly -- the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a super hero in all of us.” Zimmer produced the score for the entire film, along with his Magnificent Six: Pharrell, Incubus' Mike Einzinger, Johnny Marr, Junkie XL,

Andrew Kawczynski and Steve Mazzaro. "We were looking for just the right song to close out the film -- a song that would be upbeat and exciting, but also contain a note of foreboding," film director Marc Webb said of the track. "Alicia’s song, ‘It’s On Again,’ is the perfect end note. For the overall score, I’m so amazed by what Hans Zimmer and the Magnificent Six were able to achieve with the music in the film. Every director wants his movie to have a unique sound, but this is beyond unique. It’s completely unlike any movie score that’s come before.” A music video has already been shot for "It's On Again," and should be arriving soon. The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" soundtrack debuts April 22, and the movie hits theaters on May 2.

CEDC and KNS ROCKSTAR celebrates Cesar Chavez Day

On Monday, March 31, 2014, Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) celebrated Cesar Chavez Day at Villa Cesar Chavez Community. KNS ROCKSTAR held an anti-bullying workshop and spoke to the youth about bullying and youth violence and how to overcome these issues. Six youth leaders from that very community, led by Priscilla Cisneros of CEDC, started with an icebreaker that set the tone for an important video that they wanted to share with other families within the community. KNS ROCKSTAR also shared a video that highlighted their "Stop Tha Bullying & Youth Violence" School Tour that shows the powerful message and the excitement behind the major incentives that are given to the students at each school by KNS ROCKSTAR. The workshop was then followed by a presentation of selected teachers from a few schools in the area that led to a Q&A session for the Spanish speaking parents to better understand bullying. KNS ROCKSTAR then

opened the floor back up to the youth and created a platform for them to speak about their own views on bullying. KNS asked a series of questions to those students that volunteered and all that participated were given Six Flags Magic Mountain tickets and movie tickets courtesy of County Schools Federal Credit Union. Keyi and Silky finished with a live concert where the whole community gathered to enjoy the hot tunes of KNS' music. By the end of the last song parents that could hardly speak Eng-

lish were standing, chanting the words of each chorus that KNS sang. Students were wearing their "We Busy" movement shirts given to them by KNS as they were singing and dancing along. "It's such a great experience to be able to work so closely with a non-profit organization that cares so deeply for the youth and families to build a better community,” said KNS ROCKSTAR. CEDC has invited KNS ROCKSTAR to work on additional projects in the future at their various communities/ property locations. KNS, from page 1 Union. Four also won tickets to Six Flag Magic Mountain. The event concluded with families lining up at the KNS ROCKSTAR "Stop Tha Bullying & Youth Violence" booth to take pictures, get autographs, posters and CDs. Jane, Leo, Pauline, and the CTW board were so thankful and excited by the huge turnout and performance by KNS ROCKSTAR, they requested them back for next year and surprised them with a certificate of appreciation on Wednesday, April 2, 2014. KNS ROCKSTAR is one of the most unique duos in the music industry. They use their influence and music to promote an important message—Stop Tha Bullying—a campaign that they have taken around the country. The campaign resulted from their experience with their school tours. What they heard directly from some of their young fans was disturbing. “One kid came up to us and talked about suicide,” said Keyi. The mission of Children’s Wall of Tears is to raise the awareness of child cruelty, illuminate the laws that permit abused children to be reunified with their abusers and hopefully inspire others to step out of their comfort zones and do something about it.

NAACP Protests City Manager Hiring Process

NAACP From page 1A Eventually, Bob Murray and Associates, headquartered in Roseville, California, was awarded a contract to conduct an executive search. In consultation with the city, it has been responsible for gathering resumes and making recommendations regarding viable candidates. Recently, after narrowing the list down from more than 50 submissions (including Burnham), the City of Oxnard announced its two finalists: Nyhoff and former Santa Barbara County CEO Chandra Waller. Both were introduced to the community at a special Oxnard City Council meeting on April 2, a meeting that was met with further protests by community leaders. “There’s a hole in the heart of this city,” said Reverend Ralph James, a pastor at Overcomers Community Outreach Ministries. “The people of Oxnard deserve the most qualified city manager and the decisions and actions that were taken by the mayor and the city council have created a groundswell of emotions, questions, and reactions about the measures.” Calling the city “trapped by the past,” James questioned how Burnham could have been overlooked in the hiring process. “She was good enough to be the interim city manager but she wasn’t good enough to

be the permanent city manager. Ms. Burnham’s many years of highly competent and professional executive experience doesn’t seem to matter to this council.” James raised concerns about the credibility of the process itself, asking if the decision about whom to hire was already made by the mayor and the city council before the interview process even began. John Hatcher, president of the Ventura County NAACP, called the policies which ignored Burnham’s qualifications unbalanced and racist. “You can take it from my word,” he said. “I think it was a racist move. We didn’t call anybody racist. I just said it was a racist move, and we need to take a look at those people who are representing us who have racist tendencies.” Responding to the NAACP’s charges, Mayor Tim Flynn noted the sensitive nature of the hiring process. “Being fair and transparent is what any city should do,” said Flynn. “But because of the nature of employment issues, it is sometimes very frustrating that there are elements that are not transparent.” Flynn explained that the city must comply with the Ralph M. Brown act, which ensures that personnel hiring decisions are limited by laws that protect a candidate’s confidentiality. As for charges that the process was rigged and that he was involved in

racism, Flynn pointed to a city staff that is racially and ethnically diverse. “I think very highly of Mr. Hatcher and the NAACP,” he said. “It’s unfortunate that he has drawn that conclusion and it means that I need to try harder as the mayor to erase that perception in his mind.” Asked whether or not he held undue influence over the hiring process, Flynn responded, “I’m not aware that anything existed before the process began.” In terms of his own involvement in the matter, he stated, “I have no more influence as mayor than anyone else. I’m only one of five council members involved in the decision.” Pointing toward elections in November, James implied that the city’s treatment of Burnham may be an issue when it comes to upcoming reelection bids for the mayor and members of the city council. “The mayor and the council must own the decision they made,” James asserted, “and they must give an account to the people of Oxnard, all the people.” Flynn insisted however that the hiring of a new city manager has already been adequately and openly discussed as part of the city council’s agenda, that the process is fair and has worked as planned, and that final hiring of a new city manager is nearing completion.

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that on April 1, 2014, Eric Gabriel Suarez of Oxnard was sentenced to serve four years in state prison. Suarez pleaded guilty in December 2013 to felony trafficking in food stamp benefits, grand theft, and admitted an excessive taking allegation. He was arrested during a multi-agency crackdown on store owners trafficking in government food assistance benefits. This case was the result of a joint investigation by the District Attorney's Bureau of Investigation, the United States Department of Agriculture's Office of the Inspector General, and the United States Secret Service. CalFresh and the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program provide nutrition assistance benefits to eligible, low-income individuals and families. It is illegal for a store owner to redeem these food assistance benefits for cash. Between October 2010 and February 2013, Suarez illegally received $878,059 in EBT benefits at Avenue Mini Market in Ventura. In addition to the prison sentence, Superior Court Judge Ryan Wright ordered Suarez to pay $755,645 in outstanding restitution. Previously, federal authorities seized and forfeited $113,883 in cash and a minivan seized from Suarez because they were proceeds of his crimes. Nineteen additional persons have been convicted of misusing their EBT benefits by selling them for cash to Suarez or other employees of the Avenue Mini Market in Ventura.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On April 3, officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to a robbery involving a firearm in the 900 Block of S. Victoria Av.

Moving Forward, How Do You Find Happiness, Joy, and Contentment in Life?

By Gary L. Harbour

Debra Herrera, 44 Santa Paula, CA

Rhoan Brown, 35 Oxnard, CA

Kenyon Tobin, 40 Ventura, CA

Theresa Washington, 65 Oxnard, CA

Donnell Bryant, 28 Oxnard, CA

Ryan Kirkham, 20 Oxnard CA

“I find happiness in being a part of the Kingdom of God. Having Jesus in my life has allowed me to know that no matter what happens I can look to him for the answer. Sometimes it is hard to find happiness when things go wrong but joy comes from the Lord who does all, is all and knows all. So sometimes, when I don’t understand why, I know my heart is filled with joy & happiness because my life has a purpose. In happiness or sadness, my life is content. I trust in God.”

“Enjoying free will by making decisions guided by the almighty which will keep me alive and in perfect health. To enjoy the beauty and wonders of nature and enjoy the success of my children’s children and pass from this earth peacefully in my sleep, in perfect health. My job at Ray’s barbershop is a vital aspect in realizing this future.”

“I find happiness, joy, and contentment in my life through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! He gives me joy. He gives me happiness because I simply believe in Him and talk to Him everyday. Having a relationship with God has changed my life forever!”

“Happiness is finding the right person in my life. Joy is having five grandchildren. My contentment is having God in my life.”

“Keeping God first and taking care of yourself. Spiritual, mental and physical and taking care of your family.”

“I am a young man still going through my growing stages. Everyday seems to be a learning process and can also bring emotions very high, and have you feeling sad and low. Happiness, joy and contentment in life right now for me, is staying busy cutting hair and focusing on my family. My career had a blessing the moment that I was offered a job at Ray’s Barbershop. Coming in every day brings me joy. To have a job helps me stay on the good path. Happiness comes from my family always being there for me. Being content for me will never happen because I always strive for better.”

Das Williams Hosts Prescription How Exactly Do Colleges Drug Abuse Workshop Allocate Their Financial Aid?

They Won’t Say.

Universities rarely release the specific criteria behind their aid decisions. Could a littleknown regulation help open the black box? By Marian Wang Special to the NNPA from ProPublica At the center of the admissions and financial-aid process is a massive information imbalance: Schools make their decisions with detailed data about each applicant that goes well beyond test scores and transcripts. Many universities have access to comprehensive financial profiles, sometimes down to the type of cars a family drives. Some analyze patterns and interpret even the most subtle indicators from students, such as the order in which schools are listed on the federal financial-aid application, or even how long a student stays on the phone with an admissions officer. Students are not so lucky. Schools offer comparatively little information about exactly who they’re awarding aid to and for what. College-bound teens and their parents often resort to college forums, sharing their personal “stats” — their financial and academic profiles —

with strangers online to get advice on which colleges are likely to be generous with aid. Once they get their financial-aid awards, some even go back to these forums tocompare their aid packages in an attempt to reverse engineer colleges’ criteria. Most colleges offer “vague and superficial” disclosures about how they allocate their financial-aid dollars, said Mark Kantrowitz, a financial-aid expert with Edvisors, which publishes websites about paying for college. “They don’t give details about the actual formulas they use.” Take Newman University, a Catholic liberal-arts college based in Kansas. What are the actual criteria the college uses to determine who gets aid and how much? “That’s proprietary information,” said Pam Johnson, Newman’s interim dean of admissions and financial aid. “It’s part of our competitive strategy.” Six other universities we contacted declined or did not respond, to our request for details on how they allocate aid, including Columbia University, George Washington University, and Indiana Wesleyan University. While universities don’t

want to disclose the details, they have become increasingly strategic in recent years about how they use their aid and which students get it. Aid isn’t just given to students in need, it’s also used now for what schools call “financial aid leveraging” — often to entice high-scoring students who will help a school’s ranking or to give a small, feel-good discount to attract out-of-state students who will still end up paying a higher price. Such strategies can result in curious outcomes. At Newman, for example, the most recent data available shows the school charging students in the lowest income bracket, on average, several thousand dollars more than students in the two income bands directly above them. It’s “certainly not intentional,” Johnson said. “There’s not a financialaid grid that says, ‘Give more money to rich kids.’ It’s kids who meet other criteria that are getting financial assistance.” Johnson says the school provides need-based aid in addition to its merit-based grants and athletic scholarships. But, according to Johnson, even “needbased” grants aren’t based COLLEGES, See page 11B

VENTURA — Assemblymember Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara) hosted a workshop on prescription drug abuse in Ventura on Saturday April 5th from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM. The workshop focused on the epidemic of prescription drug abuse, prevention, and services available to people caught cycle of abuse. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, prescription drug abuse is ‘the intentional use of a medication without a prescription; in a way other than as prescribed; or for the experience or feeling it causes.’ After Cannabis, prescription drugs and Over-the-Counter medications are the second most abused drugs for 12th graders, nationwide. “Prescription Drug abuse is a serious threat not just to our seniors, but to the youth of Ventura County,” Assemblymember Williams said. “People may not understand that prescription drugs can be just as harmful and addictive as Heroin and other drugs if they are used improperly.” Approximately one in four teens are reported to misuse or abuse prescription drugs once in their lifetime, and onethird of teens believe it is okay for them to use other people’s prescribed drugs for pain.

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 will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-730-2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http:// www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-13603060-CL . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of mon-

ies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations.

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.

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 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 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 website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

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.

not present at the sale.

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. In compliance with California Civil Code 2923.5(c), the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent declares: that it has contacted the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure; or that it has made efforts to contact the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure by one or more of the following methods: by telephone, by United States mail; either 1st class or certified; by overnight delivery; by personal delivery; by e-mail; by face to face meeting or the borrower has surrendered the property to the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent and that the compliance with Civil Code Section 2923.5 was made at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of this Notice of Sale.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of GAIL G. GOODWIN. A Petition for Probate has been filed by DEBORAH L. TIBBETTS in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that DEBORAH L.

The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without

obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: April 23, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E. Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Oxnard - Juvenile Courthouse. 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.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien.

COLLEGES From page 1B solely on need: The size of the grants also depends on a student’s academic merit — a fact the school’s website doesn’t mention. The Obama administration and Congress have tried to nudge colleges toward greater transparency, rolling out a number of consumer tools to help make information about college more accessible and comparable across institutions. Among the tools available are the model financial-aid award letter and colleges’ net-price calculators, which provide students with individualized cost estimates. Both were meant to help students understand what college will cost. But neither brings any transparency to how colleges themselves are helping to determine those costs when they give aid dollars to some students and not to others. “I think opening up the information would be a good thing,” Kantrowitz said. “It would enable perhaps something even better than a net-price calculator, which are just approximations.” In fact, a mechanism for greater transparency may already exist. There’s currently regulation on the books requiring colleges participating in federal student-aid programs to disclose to current and prospective students “the criteria for selecting recipients [of financial aid] from the group of eligible applicants,” as well as “the criteria for determining the amount of a student’s award.” That goes not only for federal and state dollars, but also for the financial aid that universities give out themselves. The law and regulation don’t spell out what details colleges have to disclose. U.S. Department of Education Press Secretary Dorie Nolt sidestepped our questions about what the regulation actually requires. Nolt also did not say whether the department has ever enforced the transparency regulation. The ambiguity leaves colleges and universities a lot of wiggle room, and exactly what financialaid information is available varies depending on the school. Jon Oberg, a former congressional liaison in the Department of Education’s Office of Legislation, told ProPublica that Secretary of Education Arne Duncan could give the regulation teeth with a simple letter that spelled out what “criteria” universities would have to reveal about their decisions about financial aid. “The need for disclosure is paramount right now because of the shenanigans going on,” said Oberg, who worked with Congress on matters of interpretation, enforcement and regulation related to federal higher-education law. “Without that, it’s very open to people saying, ‘It’s vague, so we don’t know,’ or schools saying, ‘If it’s vague and there’s no enforcement, we don’t have any obligation.’” As it stands, colleges’ disclosures about their aid criteria “could be very ambiguous and still meet the statutory framework,” said David Bergeron, formerly the top advisor on higher education at the Department of Education. “Unless you have a regulation that’s specific about more detailed disclosure, I don’t think the Department can enforce anything.” Bergeron and Oberg say that colleges are doing things now with institutional aid that those writing the regulations could not have anticipated at the time. “It’s a very old provision,” Bergeron said. “It predates a lot of the significant activities and changes over time. It likely predated a lot of the public higher education financial aid.” Bergeron worries about the unintended consequences of disclosure — particularly, that the colleges that do give generous aid to needy students would feel pressure to equalize aid across all income classes to make their practices seem more palatable to the public. He’s also not sure, he said, whether the greater disclosure would ultimately be helpful to students, or whether it would get lost among the other paperwork sent their way. Oberg, on the other hand, believes that the benefits of greater transparency would outweigh potential drawbacks — and that it’s better for people to know more rather than less. “The consequences of being able to keep these decisions behind closed doors have been very bad for a lot of people,” Oberg said. “I would argue that transparency leads to positive things for higher education.” Nolt said the Education Department has encouraged more transparency, pointing to the standardized financial-aid letter the agency has developed and that colleges can voluntarily adopt. “The U.S. Department of Education and Secretary Duncan think that institutions should be transparent about the cost of college and should empower students with the information necessary to make a smart decisions about where they will attend college,” Nolt said in a statement. “Students are best served by receiving clear, easy-to-understand information about their aid package from their college – and that’s what we’ve been developing in partnership with institutions and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.”

Young Drive East, in Los Angeles Renowned theater and film director Peter Brook brings us a musicfilled adaptation of a poignant original story from South African writer Can Themba. The Suit is a tragic tale of betrayal and resentment as a scorned husband takes out his anger, pain and frustration on his wife. The suit her lover left behind takes on the symbolic embodiment of him and becomes the tool of her husband’s aggression. The suit is a constant and painful reminder of her adultery and through its presence, tension erupts, sorrow abides and the couple’s inability to heal is invoked. Set in apartheid-era South Africa, Brook’s innovative staging integrates live musicians performing African melodies and Schubert lieder. Show time is 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays with an additional 2 p.m. show on Saturday, April 12 and Sunday, April 13. Tickets are $30-$65 for the general public and $20 for UCLA students. Late seating will be subject to company approval and will occur only at a suitable time at the discretion of house staff.

R&B Bombers at Yolies

Friday, April 18 at 8 p.m. at 138 W. Main St., in Ventura The story of the R&B Bombers starts long ago, in the 1980’s, at a time that music was starting to become unhinged. Larry Nass, a guitar virtuoso from Ventura CA, along with another pair of Southern California natives Steve Nelson on bass and Joe Wilson, a vocalist whose influences are almost forgotten (but revived by Wilson in a brand new way,) wanted to form a band with a raw, human emotional feeling that captured the essence of what music is, and what made all of us start to play music in the first place. And so players in the area were recruited one by one. Success for the R&B Bombers unfortunately was not, shall we say, handled as well as it could have been, and the group had to replace members temporarily and in some cases permanently, and this led to general disarray of the band. This coupled with the untimely passing of guitarist Larry Nass ultimately caused the break-up of the group. In early 2008, the core remaining members decided that the R&B Bombers music is timeless, and extremely enjoyable to play and to be experienced by the listener. The R&B Bombers are back and have become a mighty force on the American music scene. Tickets are $12. For more information, call (805) 816-9663.

Abraham.in.Motion at Campbell Hall

Tuesday, April 22 at 8 p.m. at the University of California, Santa Barbara One of the most groundbreaking and sought-after artists of recent years, Kyle Abraham creates a conversation of movement that is fresh, unique and innovative. In his newest work, Pavement, he layers urban and classical dance influences, provocative imagery and gripping, voluptuous movement. Inspired by the neighborhoods of his youth, the 1991 film Boyz n the Hood and W.E.B DuBois’ classic essay “The Souls of Black Folk,” Pavement pays comedic homage to the bold Kriss Kross/backward jeans/hi-top fade era in hip-hop, while reflecting on the growth and loss of Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods. (Mature content due to language.) Tickets are $35 for the general public and $19 for UCSB students (current ID is required / limited availability).

SENTRY TRI COUNTY

Serving Ventura County for over twenty years

SUBSCRIPTION FORM 1-Year - $70.00

Please start my subscription immediately: Saturday, April 12 through Sunday, May 25 at 135 N. Grand Ave., in Los Angeles Obie Award-Winning writer and performer Daniel Beaty chronicles Paul Robeson’s remarkable life in an extraordinary theatrical biography. Embodying not only Robeson but also dozens of international personalities who crossed Robeson’s path, Beaty fills the theatre with the dreams, words and songs (American classics like “Ol’ Man River”) of a man who sacrificed everything in the name of liberty. We marvel at Robeson’s triumphs — All-American linebacker and valedictorian while at Rutgers, NFL linebacker while in Columbia Law School, and eventually international star of stage and screen (Showboat; the longest running Othello in Broadway history) — and we gasp at the indignities he suffered as a civil rights and labor rights activist during the McCarthy era. This remarkable play with music provided by a live combo on stage is a powerful, unflinching account of a minister’s son, who became the voice of the everyman around the world, daring to speak up and sing out for what was right.
