Insuring That Your Funeral Goes According to Plan

Rochelle Sterling, LA Clippers owner’s wife of 50 years, filed a lawsuit last month against her husband’s lover, Vanessa Stiviano. The lawsuit states that her husband used community property to purchase lavished gifts and she wants the items and money returned.

Woman sexually assaulted while shopping at Vons

CAMARILLO, Calif. (KABC) -- Shoppers are asked to be on alert as police search for a suspect in an alleged sexual battery assault at a Camarillo supermarket. The assault happened at a Vons in the 5000 block of Mission Oaks Boulevard on March 31, 2014, as a female victim was grocery shopping, police said. Police have surveillance images of the suspect who is described as a white male about 55 to 65 years old, with gray hair and a bushy gray mustache.

The suspect allegedly walked by the woman, groped one of her breasts, walked away and quickly came back. He then acted like he was reaching for groceries and groped one of her breasts again, according to Ventura Country Sheriff’s Sgt. John Franchi. Police say there may be other victims.

By Tim Pompey Death is never pleasant to think about, but for the sake of friends and family, some advance planning could save them a lot of heartache and stress. After all, they’re the ones who deal with the aftermath. Things such as estate settlement, funeral expenses, and enough money to settle a host of bills while you are being laid to rest. Since death is never convenient, everyone who thinks about this realizes they’re up against a ticking clock and the risk of the unexpected. So, young or old, no one has a guarantee of tomorrow. The question is what to do about it...today. One large resource is right at your fingertips. The Internet. For instance, a couple of websites provide some good general information about preplanned funeral arrangements. Here’s a sample: www.wikihow. com/Make-Preparationsfor-a-Funeral, www.caregiverslibrary.org/portals/0/ checklistsandforms_funeralplanningchecklist.pdf, and www.bankrate.com/fi-

California bill reignites affirmative action fight

By Julie T.

Around the Tri-Counties Success leaves clues…but so does Failure! Is there a pattern for Failure? Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan We all know there is a pattern for success but did you know there is also a pattern for failure sometimes knowing what not to do will help you know what to do. I want to give you seven things that unsuccessful people do, in hopes that you will do the opposite. Just like successful people have habits, so do unsuccessful people. If you want to be successful, NEVER engage yourself in these 7 Habits of Unsuccessful people. HABIT #1- Unsuccessful People Think, Say, & Do Negative Things Unsuccessful people continue to fail at everything they do because they see problems in every opportunity. They complain that the sun is too hot. They cursed the rain for ruining their plans for the day. They blame the wind for ruining their hair. They think that

everyone is against them. They see the problems but never the solutions. Every little bit of difficulty is exaggerated to the point of tragedy. They regard failures as catastrophes. They become discouraged easily instead of learning from their mistakes. They never seem to move forward because they’re always afraid to come out of their comfort zones. HABIT #2- Unsuccessful People Act Before They Think They move based on impulse. They desire immediate gratification in every situation. If they see something they like, they buy it without any second thought. Then they see something better and regret their impulsive purchases. They get into impulsive relationships that usually end in disaster. They don’t think about the future and they don’t think about the consequences. HABIT #3- Unsuccessful People Talk Much More Than They Listen They want to be the star of the show. They always engage in conversation and say things that will make them seem important, even to the point of lying. Oftentimes they are not aware that what they’re saying makes no sense. Paid Advertisement

When other people advise them, they close their ears because they would rather die than admit their mistakes. In their mind they’re always right. They reject suggestions or help from others because it makes them feel inferior. HABIT #4- Unsuccessful People Give Up Easily Successful people treat failures as stepping stones to success. Those who seldom succeed usually call it quits on the first signs of failure. At first, they are excited to start a new endeavor, but then they lose interest quickly, especially when they encounter obstacles. Then they go and search for a new goal, business, career or relationship and get the same results. People who consistently fail don’t have the persistence to wok though their problems and obstacles to fulfill their dreams. HABIT #5- Unsuccessful People Try To Bring Others Down To Their Level Unsuccessful people envy other people who are successful. Instead of working hard to be like them, they spread rumors and try every dirty trick in the book to bring them down. They could have asked these successful people for help to succeed, FAILURE, See page 12A

Obtaining Your Place Inez Knows

By Inez Lanns Everyone loves peace. Everyone loves happiness. Everyone loves prosperity. And everyone loves success. Or do they? Do people truly love and desire those things? Or do they like the thought of obtaining them? What peace is to one may not be peace to another. For instance, the beach could produce serenity for one person while it is just messy sand and noise to another. Success may mean a lot of money to one person while a healthy family and home life is to another. Once you define what you believe peace, happiness, prosperity and success will

look like, the next step is to seek them and do what you must to find them. When you look at your life and your actions, are you doing taking the necessary steps to obtain and maintain true peace, happiness, prosperity and success? A major issue for some people who have sought after what other people have told them “happiness,” etc. means are often left unfulfilled. Their definition of “happiness” is relative to their individual experience and is suppose to be for them, but not for that certain individual. When they later find out that someone else’s happiness is not for them, they may feel a sense of loss or confusion at why “happiness” seems fleeting or unobtainable. It is best to follow your own path in life and stay in your own lane in life, even if people are not walking the path with you. It’s funny we tell people to be themselves, but then when they are themselves they are often ridiculed for not conforming to what ev-

If you are taking those steps to get to where you would like to be, kudos to you! However, I am finding that many people do not even know where to start.

The People’s Throb “L.A. Clippers” Franchise Owner Donald Sterling was sued by the Justice Department in 2009 for $2.73 Million for racism against African-Americans & Hispanic-Americans in his rental practices. Now, according to news reports, Sterling has made racist remarks and chastised his girlfriend (who is bi-racial), for posting pictures with Hall of Famer Ervin “Magic” Johnson and other minorities on By Gary L. Harbour “Instagram,” asking her not to bring them to L.A. Clippers basketball games. Do you agree with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s, ruling? Should Donald Sterling be barred from the NBA for his racist and offensive comments?

“A vast majority of higher ranking powerful people in the business world are of AfricanAmerican, Hispanic, Latino or Asian descent. A man owning a professional franchise has to be smarter regardless of his beliefs. Probably eighty to ninety percent of his team is minority. He is a confused, rich bigot, who has clearly refused to adapt and become a part of the world we live in. He should not be a team owner and should be banned from any NBA games. His only saving grace would be to step down from ownership.”

“No! In any business that a person has, I am sure they know how they hire. He built his empire. We are all racist to an extent.”

“I personally think that Donald Sterling should be barred for his comments. Not only from the N.B.A., but also from any organization that deals with him! It is shown from his actions, not only recent but prior years, that he is biased, not only against African Americans, but minorities in general.”

“I think he should be fined and hit where it matters. His bank account is what really fuels his team and life. I think he messed up, saying what he said because a lot of Blacks and Mexicans are gonna’ boycott his team. He better hope that this incident doesn’t get too big. He might lose his franchise, literally.”

“If the tape recording is found to be authentic, I strongly feel Mr. Sterling should not be afforded the privilege of owning a N.B.A. franchise, and profiting from African-American players, coaches, and fans. I am currently a Clippers fan and was disgusted as a fan, and an AfricanAmerican male. I am putting my support, as a fan of the Clippers on hold, until I learn the outcome and consequences of his remarks and views of Blacks and other minorities.”

“Well, at first I was in support of Mr. Sterling stating what he believed. Then I realized that what he believes was completely bigoted and racist. Now I’m still not in disagreement with him, because I think that you should be able to voice how you feel without being hindered by the status-quo, or what is politically correct. I just don’t believe he should be an executive of an organization that is fueled by the efforts of those in which he despises, or feels superior to.”

Sports News Yankees Pitcher Michael Pineda Mike Tyson's Ceremonial First Pitch Ejected for Substance on Neck Includes a Ceremonial Ear Bite

By Howard Ulman BOSTON — Less than two weeks after pitching against Boston with what appeared to be pine tar on his pitching hand, the New York Yankees’ Michael Pineda was ejected from a game against the Red Sox on Wednesday, April 23 after umpires found a foreign substance on his neck. Boston manager John Farrell didn’t alert umpires about brown goo on the lower part of Pineda’s right palm during a 4-1 win over Boston at Yankee Stadium on April 10. Photos of Pineda’s pitching hand that night sparked a debate about pitchers’ use of sticky substances to get a better grips in cool weather. With two outs and a 1-2 count on Grady Sizemore, Farrell left his dugout to talk with plate umpire Gerry Davis, who went to the mound. Davis touched the right side of the pitcher’s neck with his index finger then ejected Pineda as other umpires and Yankee infielders stood nearby. On a night with a game time temperature of 50 degrees, Farrell had said before batting practice: “I would expect if it’s used, it’s more discreet than last time.” Pineda left with the Yan-

Who the players are in the LA Clippers Fiasco From page 1A I replied, “You have great taste. I would like to speak with you about advertising the LA Clippers.” “Ok, speak with my assistant.” My conversation with Ms. “V”: “We already advertise in the Los Angeles Times.” “I want to help you reach more African-Americans and minorities.” “Uhhh… We only want to reach the people who read the LA Times.” “Oh! Excuse me!” In this current age, it’s hard to imagine a more flamboyant racist slumlord than Donald Sterling, the Los Angeles Clippers owner who was caught disparaging “black people” on tape. He has nothing but disdain for AfricanAmericans, telling his girlfriend—herself Black and Mexican—that it “bothers” him “a lot” that she wants to “broadcast” she’s “associating with Black people” and that she shouldn’t “bring them to [his] games,” despite the fact his games are played

by Black people. It started with Al Sharpton asking Clippers’ advertisers to withdraw ad dollars. Later, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling from associating with the Clippers and even attending all games for life. He fined Sterling the maximum allowed, $2.5 million. Finally, Silver said he will personally lobby the league’s Board of Governors to force the sale of the team that Sterling has owned since 1981. Sterling originally bought the team for about $12.5 million and stands to make hundreds of millions off any sale. Three-quarters of NBA owners are needed to force, under NBA governance rules, 80-year-old Sterling to sell the franchise he largely mismanaged into irrelevance through the years. This rightfully pushes responsibility for what’s next on fellow owners, should they decide to back Sterling, will have to answer to outraged players, coaches, executives, fans and sponsors.

Chad Johnson said in a statement. "As we added him into the mix, it was to see how he communicated with the players, how he held himself, the way he physically held up, his true interest in coming to the CFL. "It was a total evaluation so that it's a good fit. He was very happy and very excited to be on the field again and we are happy to welcome him to the Alouettes." Johnson, who once changed his last name to Ochocinco, spent most of his 11 NFL seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. In 166 career games, the sixtime Pro Bowler caught 766 passes for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns. He was in training camp in 2012 with the Miami Dolphins — his hometown team — but his contract was terminated one day after he was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. Montreal already has a solid core of receivers in Duron Carter, S.J. Green and Jamel Richardson. The Alouettes will hold a training camp in June and open their regular season at Calgary on June 28.

Mike Tyson was in Pittsburgh to promote a boxing event on April 18, so he stopped by PNC Park to throw out the ceremonial first pitch April 17. Mike Tyson may not have a second career in the major leagues ahead of him but he did manage to throw something resembling a strike. The former heavyweight champ showed off his unusual delivery tossing out a ceremonial first pitch before the Pittsburgh Pirates hosted the Milwaukee Brewers. Not only did the boxing legend manage to find the strike zone, but he also pulled out one of his signature moves. Pirates catcher Tony Sanchez was lucky to walk away with both ears.

Hopkins, the oldest major world champion in boxing history, won a split decision over Kazak fighter Beibut Shumenov to take the World Boxing Association title and keep his International Boxing Federation crown. "The only thing I want to know before I leave this game is that I gave it all," Hopkins said. "It's another page. Every page is history. Money is great but history is something you can't get rid of."

Donovan McNabb Spends Day in Jail for 2013 DUI Arrest

MESA, Ariz. — Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb was released from an Arizona jail after serving a one-day sentence for a DUI arrest late last year. McNabb, 37, was arrested Dec. 15 in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community east of Phoenix, according to court records. A copy of the citation shows McNabb was stopped on the Loop 101 freeway just after 3 a.m. and radar clocked his Range Rover at 81 mph in a 65-mph zone. He also was cited for DUI, but no information about bloodalcohol level was on the citation. McNabb pleaded guilty on March 27 and nine days of his sentence was suspended. Court documents show McNabb was ordered to pay a nearly $1,500 fine

Donovan McNabb and enter an outpatient treatment program in Scottsdale from April 10 to July 8. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office released McNabb's mug shot starting a media frenzy about his arrest, which hadn't been previously reported. The agency later said in a statement that McNabb

was booked into a detention facility by order of the West Mesa Justice Court and released after serving one day for a misdemeanor DUI charge. McNabb's Phoenixbased attorney Stephen Benedetto didn't immediately return a call seeking comment on the case. McNabb played 13 years in the NFL after being drafted with the second overall pick in 1999. He led the Philadelphia Eagles to four straight NFC championship games from 2001 to 2004 and one Super Bowl berth that ended in a 24-21 loss to the New England Patriots in 2005. McNabb played for the Washington Redskins in 2010 and Minnesota Vikings in 2011 before retiring. He currently co-hosts a sports talk radio show and has a home in the Phoenix area.

It's already known that low-income students of color generally have less experienced teachers, but a new study from the Center for American Progress reveals they have less effective teachers, too. The Center For American Progress report analyzed the evaluation scores of teachers in low-income and affluent districts in both Massachusetts and Louisiana. Throughout the past few years, states have been incentivized to adopt new teacher evaluation systems through Race To The Top funding. The teacher evaluations in Massachusetts and Louisiana -- two states that are unique in making evaluation scores public -- rate teachers based on measures like student scores on standardized tests and effectiveness dur-

ing classroom observation sessions. In Louisiana, where teachers are rated as either "ineffective," "effectiveemerging," "effective-proficient" or "highly effective," researchers found that “a student in a school in the highest-poverty quartile is almost three times as likely to be taught by a teacher rated ineffective as a student in a school in the lowest-poverty quartile.” Similarly, students in schools with a high concen-

tration of minorities are more than twice as likely to have an ineffective teacher than students in schools with a low minority enrollment. Massachusetts teachers receive ratings such as "unsatisfactory," "needs improvement," "proficient" or "exemplary." Although Massachusetts has fewer teachers with poor ratings than Louisiana, students in high-poverty schools are three times as likely to be taught by a teacher rated STUDENTS, See page 12A

Summer is near, and many students are anticipating their summer jobs or summer internships. Many, however, are procrastinating and have not yet applied for the many opportunities that are available. Each year, minority students especially seem to be waiting to the last minute to apply. Last summer for example, the Black teen unemployment rate was at an alarmingly high rate, and this added to the already devastating statistics of Black unemployment. With all that being said, it is not too late and there are many programs that are still accepting applications – not just for the summer, but also for the upcoming fall and winter. Below is a list of the top 2014/2015 minority internships: #1 – The AAAS Minority Science Writers Internship

At just 11 years old, Walter Levin knows that is not the way to get things done. “Both kids and adults need to set goals and then get into the habit of working toward them,” says Walter, who recently published his first book, “The Kid Who Went to the Moon,” (www. spacekidbooks.com), and is working on his second in the series. “I set aside a day and time, or days and times, every week to work on whatever project I’ve got. When it becomes part of your routine, you just do it!” Walter’s book is also about a kid with a big goal, and the creative ways he and his best friend go about accomplishing it, including creating YouTube

videos that go viral. “Even though my book is fiction, I wanted it to be believable, partly because I like fantasy books that have enough real elements to make you think, ‘This actually could happen,’ but also because I want the kids who read it to really believe they can accomplish whatever they dream of,” Walter says. Whether you’re a kid – or an adult – who procrastinates on working toward goals, Walter offers tips for success based on his firsthand experience. • Focus on how you’re going to feel once you’ve made some progress. “If you’re a person who has a hard time sitting down to work on something, whether it’s an essay for school or cleaning your bedroom, think about how good it feels when you’re almost done,” Walter suggests. “Being almost there

can actually feel even better than finishing!” (Numerous studies back up Walter’s observation: We’re happiest when we’re making progress toward our goals as opposed to when we achieve them.) • Have faith that whatever you’re trying to do will get a lot easier with practice. Walter is also an avid unicyclist, but he lost his balance more than once when he first tried to pedal a unicycle. “I’m really glad for the experience of learning how to ride a unicycle because it was so hard for a long time. I thought, ‘This is impossible!’ and I wanted to give up,” he says. Something, though, made him keep trying, day after day. Eventually, it became the easiest thing in the world. “Whenever I’m trying TIPS, See page 12A

State News Assemblymember Brown Tackles Issue of Brownley Welcomes USDA Announcement Driver’s Licenses for Undocumented Immigrants of Specialty Crop Block Grant Funding

Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) welcomed the announcement that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has made approximately $66 million in Specialty Crop Block Grants available for projects to help specialty crop growers. As a member of the Specialty Crop Caucus, Brownley fought for the renewal of the Specialty Crop Block Grant program when Congress reauthorized the Farm Bill. “The Specialty Crop Block Grants will create jobs, strengthen our rural communities, and fund research to increase sustainability and profitability for our farmers,” said Brownley. “I voted for the Farm Bill to ensure that programs like this one can continue to benefit our

Congresswoman Julia Brownley farmers and farmworkers in Ventura County, and that families and students across the United States have greater access to healthy foods. Agriculture is a $2 billion dollar industry in Ventura, creates thousands of jobs, and is

an integral part of our culture and heritage. I want to do everything I possibly can to help it thrive.” Specialty Crop Block Grants are funded by the Farm Bill, and are allocated directly to U.S. states and territories for distribution based on crop production value and acreage. As the supplier of over half of the United States’ fruit and vegetables, California received $18.9 million for 65 different programs, the highest amount of funding provided to any state. Some of the 65 proposals include partnering with the California Strawberry Commission to improve water management, working with the California Cut Flower Commission and the California Flower Growers Cooperative to BROWNLEY, See page 12A

SAN BERNARDINO – A stakeholder meeting was held to discuss the process of implementing AB 60, a new law that allows the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to issue driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants beginning January 1, 2015. The first meeting was held at the District Office of Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown and included representation from the DMV, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the Consulado de Mexico, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Inland Congregations United for Change (ICUC), Latinas Educated And Empowering Communities, and Centro del Immigrante (Cdell). “As our state begins to advance immigration re-

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Rocky Chávez (R-Oceanside) announced today that Assembly Bill 2201 passed out of the Assembly Transportation Committee. AB 2201 will automatically sign young men to the Selective Service System (SSS) when applying for a new or renewed driver’s license. The Selective Service Act mandates that men ages 18 to 25 register with the federal Selective Service System. Failure to enroll can mean fines, imprisonment and loss of benefits.

ulation in the nation. According to a 2011 census report, California’s immigrant population represents nearly 2.6 million of the nation’s 11 million total. In California, undocumented immigrants account for seven percent of the total population and nine percent of the state’s workforce. Given California’s large immigrant population, stakeholders expressed a concern for immigrants becoming a target of abuse by law enforcement and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency due to the special identification symbol that’s embedded on the license. However, stakeholders were reassured that under AB 60, law enforcement officers are not permitted to target immigrants for criminal BROWN, See page 12A

Assemblymember Rocky Chávez ready collects and forwards new and renewed driver’s license information to the

SSS, who then mails out a registration card that must be filled out and returned. A recent report indicates that 42 percent of 18 year old men in California have not registered with SSS. AB 2201 will streamline this process. “This measure will help prevent young men in California from losing access to important benefits such as Federal student loans and grants, and can even prevent a person from gaining citizenship,” Chávez said. “AB 2201 protects California’s young men. I am happy to see the measure move forward.”

A Black Los Angeles police captain is suing the city, alleging he was denied promotions because he did not conform with what he claims is Chief Charlie Beck’s belief that all officers sent to Board of Rights hearings should be fired. Capt. Byford (Peter) Whittingham also alleges that only three Black captains have been promoted to elevated captain ranks with higher pay out of the 58 such promotions Beck has granted since becoming head of the department in November 2009. Whittingham’s whistleblower suit also alleges retaliation and discrimination. He’s seeking unspecified damages. An LAPD spokeswoman said the department does not comment on litigation. According to the lawsuit, Whittingham at times serves on Board of Rights hearings to determine whether officers should be disciplined for alleged misconduct. During a meeting of LAPD personnel of the rank of captain or above, a deputy chief — with Beck present — “told all command staff that when the chief sends an officer to a Board of Rights (hearing), he expects that officer to be terminated and the commanding officers sitting on

Capt. Byford Whittingham also alleges discrimination the Board of Rights do not have the authority to do anything different.” In August 2012, Whittingham says he sat on a Board of Rights hearing in which he believed that information existed to exonerate an accused officer and wanted to dismiss the case based on an opinion from the City Attorney’s Office. “However, Chief Beck overruled plaintiff’s decision and the Board of Rights (hearing) was ordered to proceed,” the suit states. At the end of the hearing, Whittingham says he voted to suspend rather than fire the officer. On another occasion, Whittingham testified favorably during an administrative hearing on behalf of a black officer who alleged he was subjected to racist LAPD, See page 11B

National News Brooklyn Man Exonerated After South Carolina Republicans Skip Event 24 Years in Prison Honoring Judge

By Dana Gethers Brooklyn native Jonathan Fleming, 51, has been exonerated after being falsely convicted of murder in August 1989 and spending over 24 years in prison. Fleming was imprisoned for supposedly shooting and killing Darryl Rush in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, despite declaring he was in Florida at the time of the crime. New evidence, including receipts from a Florida hotel stamped just four hours before the murder took place, have cleared him of the charges. Anthony Mayol, Fleming’s lawyer, brought the evidence to the new administration under recently appointed Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson. “Today’s actions follow a careful and thorough review of this case, and based on key alibi facts that place Fleming in Florida at the time of the murder, I have decided to dismiss all charges against him in the interest of justice,” said Thompson. The DA’s office gives credit for the discovery to the Conviction Review Unit (CRU), whose thorough investigation allowed

Thompson recently announced that the CRU would be headed by Harvard Law professor Ronald S. Sullivan Jr. The unit has been tasked with conducting thorough investigations of cases under review by the DA’s office. Fleming’s case was reportedly finalized on April 8 before a Brooklyn judge only months before he was eligible for parole for his 25-years-to-life sentence. Fleming’s release comes

only months after the DA agreed to the release of Anthony Yarbough and Shariff Wilson, also from Brooklyn, after 21 years behind bars. A CRU investigation into their cases revealed that they were not responsible for the triple homicide they were determined to have committed at ages 15 and 18. “There have been individuals released every month since the DA has been in office,” said Sheila Stainback, a spokeswoman for Thompson.

Jury Finds Physician Not-Guilty of Causing Brain Damage to Woman

Springfield, MA — At 45 years of age on May 1, 2006, patient Judy Peters attended an appointment with Dr. Carlos Valdes at a major hospital in Springfield, MA to have a needle core biopsy procedure performed. Dr. Valdes told Ms. Peters this type of procedure would take about 15 minutes. However, Ms. Peters remained on the procedure table for one hour and 35 minutes, during which Dr. Valdes said she hemorrhaged the entire time. Valdes admitted to administering Epinephrine at least five times during the one and a half hour time interval. A registered nurse was called over the hospital’s intercom to come into the procedure room in order to take Ms. Peters’ vitals. At 10:10 A.M the nurse recorded that the patient’s pulse dropped to 2 beats per minute and at 10:20 it had gone up to 6 beats per minute though a hand writing expert uncovered that those numbers had been tampered with. The patient’s blood pressure was recorded to have dropped to 80/50 mm/hg however, Ms. Peters heard the nurse say 60/50. The patient soon fell unconscious on the procedure table and was moved to a different room in which she remained unconscious for one hour. She was not provided oxygen, IV fluids, or a blood transfusion. She was not taken to the Emergency Room (despite the fact that the ER was on the same floor as Dr. Valdes’ office) nor was she taken to the Intensive Care Unit. When she woke up from her unconscious state, Dr. Valdes instructed

Judy Peters Ms. Peters to return home and drink orange juice and she will be fine in three weeks. It took Ms. Peters ten hours to drive herself home, when it usually takes one hour. She was forced to continually stop at various locations along the way to sleep. She does not remember the majority of the trip home. Ms. Peters called Dr. Valdes the following day to ask about the results of her biopsy, and after he did not return her phone calls she asked her son to drive her to his office to get the results. When Ms. Peters arrived she removed her winter gloves (in the beginning of May) to show Dr. Valdes how cold and blue her hands were. She also showed him her blue lips and discolored face. He told her that he did not get enough samples so he could not tell Ms. Peters if she had cancer or not. But again Dr. Valdes instructed Ms. Peters to return home and drink orange juice and she will be fine in three weeks. Ms. Peters did as Dr. Valdes instructed believing that if she followed the instructions of the specialized physician she would be okay.

Ready to Renovate? Here's Your First Move

Why Disability Insurance is Critical By Jason Alderman Most people understand why having life insurance is a good idea: Nobody wants to leave their survivors in a financial lurch if they were to die suddenly. But what if you suffer an accident or illness and don't die, but rather, become severely disabled? Could you or your family make ends meet without your paycheck, possibly for decades? Although most people are entitled to Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits if they've paid sufficient FICA payroll taxes over the years, the eligibility rules are extremely strict, applying can take many months, and the average monthly benefit is only about $1,150. So what are your other disability coverage options? Many companies provide sick leave and short-term disability coverage to reimburse employees during brief periods of illness or injury. Some also provide long-term disability (LTD) insurance that replaces a percentage of pay for an extended period of time. But employer-provided LTD plans usually replace only about 60 percent of pay and the money you receive is considered taxable income, further lowering your benefit's worth. Plus,

such plans often have a waiting period before benefits kick in, will carve out any SSDI benefits you receive, and cap the monthly benefit amount and maximum payout period (often as little as two years). Thus, even if your employer provides basic LTD, you might want to purchase additional coverage. Just be prepared: LTD insurance can be expensive. Yearly premiums may cost 1 to 3 percent of gross income, depending on plan features, your age, and whether you have preexisting conditions. First, see if you can buy supplemental coverage through your employer's plan – their group rate will be cheaper than an individual policy and you probably won't need a physical exam. Or see if any professional or trade organizations you belong to offer group coverage. If not, you'll have to buy an individual policy. A few of the things to keep in mind: • The younger and healthier you are, the lower the premiums you'll be able to lock in. • Some policies won't pay benefits unless you can't perform the duties of your own occupation, while others specify that you must be physically

unable to perform any job (the latter coverage is much cheaper). • Look for a "noncancelable" policy, which means the insurer can't cancel or refuse to renew your policy – or raise the premium – if you pay on time. • The longer the waiting period before benefits are paid, the lower the premium. Thus, if you have enough sick time and savings to wait 120 days before payout, your premiums will be significantly less than for a 60-day waiting period. • Some policies only provide benefits for two years, while others pay until your normal Social Security retirement age – most cover somewhere in between. The shorter the term, the lower the cost. • Many plans exclude preexisting conditions, mental health or substance abuse issues. • For an additional fee, policies with a "future purchase option" allow you to increase coverage as your wages rise, without having to take another physical or rewrite the policy.

By Josh Garskof When the real estate market was in the dumps, snagging a great contractor was a simple task. With few people remodeling, no project was too small for hungry pros, many of whom were bidding at 10% to 40% below their boom-time rates. Those days are gone. Remodeling spending is now up 30% from its low point, and single-family construction spending has doubled. Depending on where you live, a project that cost $50,000 in 2010 might now come in at $60,000 to $70,000. "Materials costs are up, much of the skilled labor pool has jumped to the oil and gas industry, and contractors' phones are ringing," says Bernard Markstein, U.S. chief economist at Reed Construction Data. To get the best help, you'll need to be strategic. Start with referrals. Begin by polling friends and tradesmen, and tell the contractor who pointed you in his direction. Using a referral will do more than just ease your mind -- it will also make you a priority for the pro, who wants to keep his clients and subcontractors happy. Don't be vague. When you reach out, show that you've put careful thought into the project by expressing a clear vision of what you want to accomplish

Find the right pro at the best, not the cheapest, price for your home renovation project. and a sense of what you can spend. "Bidding on a job takes about a dozen hours," says Boston renovation consultant Bruce Irving. "He's not going to bother unless he thinks you're serious." Get his opinion. When a contractor comes to see the job, don't jump right into discussing price. First ask for his input on the plan and on any initial sketches your architect has put together. This shows you value his knowledge and don't just see him as a nail banger. Plus, his answers will show you how he thinks -- and whether you want to hire him. Is he channeling what you want? Great. But if he suggests lazy solutions or pricey add-ons, move on. Now negotiate. Solicit bids from three or more contractors. Be sure to stoke competition by let-

ting them know that you're gathering multiple offers. Skip any bids that are wildly high or low. Should your first choice still be over your budget, haggling is risky: He'll probably either walk or cut corners on the project. Instead, let him know how much he's over, and ask for some suggestions on how he might tweak the job to lower the price with minimal impact, says UCLA law professor Russell Korobkin, a negotiation specialist. Remember to hold out a contingency of 10% to 20%, since many remodels mushroom over the course of the project. Be flexible. This is also the time to nail down scheduling. Ask him for approximate start and end dates. But don't press too hard. For a top contractor, at a fair price, you may to have to wait a bit.

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Paltry Number of SBA Loans to Taking Mortgage Complaints Seriously Black Businesses

By Ron Busby, Sr. A recent Wall Street Journal (WSJ) story detailed the inability of Black-owned businesses to be approved for SBAbacked loans made through America’s most prolific small business lenders. And

while it was satisfying – in a weird kind of way – to have confirmed what Black business owners have known for years, it was something of a gut punch to learn just how bad the situation has become. “Black borrowers re-

Ron Busby, Sr. ceived 1.7% of the $23.09 billion in total SBA loans. The percentage is down sharply from 8.2% of overall SBA loan volume in fiscal 2008. By number of loans, black-owned small businesses got 2.3% of the federal agency’s roughly 54,000 loans last year, down from 11% in 2008,” the newspaper reported. According to the SBA, their average loan is $426,796, more than double the average of $192,919 in 2005. That’s a major problem for Black businesses because 80 percent of the loans Black business need are $150,000 or less. As you might imagine, there are several reasons this latest report is so disturbing. In addition to Black-owned businesses being approved for 2.3 percent (only 1,242) of the 54,000 SBA-backed loans, Black businesses received just 1.7 percent of the dollar value of those loans – $325 million – at a time SBA lending spiked to $30.29 billion. So get this straight: While the economy is relatively booming and the number of Black-owned businesses is skyrocketing (now about 7 percent of the SBA, See page 11B

By Ken Harney A Realtor friend of mine recently asked me about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau: “Do they really do anything when somebody submits a complaint about their mortgage company? Can I tell clients that it’s not a waste of time to complain to the CFPB?” Here’s what I said: The CFPB puts out numbers and reports on its complaint resolution activities — the latest annual report came out March 31 — detailing complaint volume, the names of the companies that are the subjects of complaints and the current status of each case. In its annual report for 2013, the bureau says that it has logged in 310,000 total consumer complaints since mid-2011, and that the volume is exploding — up 80 percent last year alone. Nearly 2 out of 5 complaints (37 percent) come from homeowners. The total was 60,000 in 2013. Another 15 percent concern inaccuracies in credit reports of the type that often lead to loan rejections and higher interest rates and fees. An astounding 85 percent of the mortgage complaints involve loan servicers, running the gamut from messed-up escrow

More homeowners' groups may be operating with insufficient reserves, which could one day result in an unexpected increase in costs to home owners. An estimated 70 percent of association-governed communities are underfunded, a rise from 60 percent a decade ago, according to a new report from the consulting firm Association Reserves.

Associations that lack adequate reserves may impose large special assessments for emergency repairs, says Robert Nordlund, Association Reserves' founder. What’s more, home owners who don’t pay could then face liens against their property, or the association could even have the power to foreclose on them. Housing experts urge

home buyers to ask for a copy of the homeowner group’s most recent reserve study and ask about the percentage of residents who are more than 60 days delinquent on their fees.

What Kind Of Inheritance Do Mental Health Trending Toward Recovery You Really Owe Your Kids? By Bart Astor “I don’t believe in inheriting money,” CNN host Anderson Cooper recently told Howard Stern on Stern's radio show. Added Cooper, a son of designer and heiress Gloria Vanderbilt: “I think it’s an initiative sucker. I think it’s a curse.” Cooper acknowledges that it's easy for him to say so, given his multimilliondollar TV salary. But his attitude toward inheritances is not unique. Only 46 percent of boomers believe it’s important to leave an inheritance to loved ones, according to a new survey by the Insured Retirement Institute, a retirementincome industry group. In the past, that figure was closer to two-thirds. While many in midlife expect to spend everything they have before they die, others are planning diligently to ensure their heirs are taken care of appropriately and that Uncle

Sam won’t take too large a share of their estate. To Bequest or Not to Bequest... How about you? Do you endorse Cooper’s attitude that inheriting money is a curse? Or do you want to preserve all you can and provide for your kids, grandkids or perhaps to a cause you believe in? If so, have you taken steps to make sure that happens in an efficient and effective way? Alice Anselmo, a finan-

cial adviser with UBS in Red Bank, N.J. frequently poses questions like these to her clients and says there’s no right answer. Planning Is Key for Inheritances But financial planners, eldercare attorneys and accountants are quick to point out that if you want to leave an inheritance but don’t make the proper plans for it, you’re setting up yourself and your heirs for multiple problems. INHERITANCE, See page 11B

By Gerald Payne An older gentleman named Stamatis Moraitis was living in the United States, when he was diagnosed with lung cancer and told he had only nine months to live. He considered taking his doctor’s advice – aggressive chemotherapy that might prolong his life, but wouldn’t cure him. But upon reflection, he decided to decline it, choosing instead to return to Ikaria, the Greek island where he grew up, where he could be buried with his ancestors in a graveyard overlooking the Aegean Sea. He and his wife moved into a small house on a vineyard with his elderly parents, where he expected he would die soon. While he prepared to die, he started going to his old church. He reconnected with friends over a bottle or two of wine. He even planted vegetables in a garden, not expecting he’d be around to harvest them. He basked in sunshine, savored the salty air, and relished in his love for this wife.

Six months passed, and not only did Stamatis not die, he was actually feeling better than ever. He started working in the vineyard during the day, making himself useful, and in the evenings, he’d play dominos with friends. Forty-five years later, Stamatis is now 98 years old. At one point, 25 years after his diagnosis, Stamatis went back to the United States to ask his doctors what had happened. Apparently, his doctors were all dead. A New York Times article “The Island Where People Forget To Die” describes

the Ikarians, a population of Greeks like Stamatis who frequently live to be over a hundred years old. What can we learn from the people of Ikaria about how to live long, happy, productive lives? Here are some of the longevity-inducing factors researchers ferreted out from studying this population of centenarians: 1. Sleep In and Take Naps A 2008 study conducted by the University of Athens Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health studied more than 23,000 Greeks and found that occasional napping was associated with a 12% reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease. But regular napping — at least three days weekly — was associated with a 37% reduction. Zzzz’s, anyone? 2. Grow & Eat from Your Own Garden Eat plants, avoid animal products, consume lots of olive oil, avoid processed foods, and drink wine in the company of good friends. TIPS, See page 11B

We have all heard the saying "60 is the new 40." For us baby boomers, aging is truly a different experience than it was for our parents and grandparents. Gone are the "grandmas" of yesterday in their dusters, always baking and identified for the most part through their husbands. Gone too are the grandpas in their recliners who only get up for the next meal or to go fishing. We are more fit, more fun and more happening than previous generations. We wear similar clothing, like the same music and enjoy the same movies, books and television shows. Plastic surgery, Botox, fillers and peels can keep us looking younger (if you go to someone good and in moderation) -- or if taken too far -- like old women, unwrinkled and fish-lipped who can't move their faces. But the secret to staying young? Keeping up in our technological world. Want to instantly age your-

self? Be the person who "doesn't get Twitter," can't figure out Facebook and won't even consider texting or Instagram. Be the one who never uses a computer -- better yet call it a "machine" and "don't do email." Yep. Be that person. And you are old. Twitter is not frivolous. In fact, it is used by businesses, hospitals, media, universities and government agencies. In the earliest days of Twitter, major stories broke on Twitter, not on CNN. When a Continental Airlines crashed in Denver in 2008, Twitter broke the story. It was first to report the earthquake in China in 2008 and terrorism in Mumbai. The Iranian election in 2009 was a Twitter event with reportedly 2,500 updates per minute. And we learned on Twitter that Bin Laden was dead -- in fact Keith Urbahn, the former chief of staff for Donald Rumsfeld tweeted, "So I'm told by a reputable person

they have killed Osama Bin Laden. Hot damn." That was supposedly Twitter's biggest scoop. And the scoops continue today. You can turn on cable news and watch an endless loop of theories about the Malaysian air crash. Or go to your Twitter feed and a world of information is at your fingertips. Assuming you follow reputable people who are tweeting accurate news, you can learn more in just a few minutes about the stories of the day than from cable news. Twitter can be used to find a job, research an illness, check out a movie review or a hurricane. It will allow you to see what the world is talking about. Skeptical? Turn into Twitter next time there is a big event: A Presidential election, the Academy Awards, Super Bowl or State of the Union. The feed is fast and furious. So baby boomers. Want to stay young and current? Get yourself a Twitter handle.

(NewsUSA) - The discrimination and stigma surrounding mental health challenges along with a troubling history of medically sanctioned treatments are no secret. Today, for someone with a psychiatric diagnosis -- such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar or ADHD -- the standard treatment is psychotropic medications that are always doctor-ordered and sometimes court-mandated. Researchers and clinicians are now providing data suggesting that recovery is not always achieved solely with prescribed medications. "By pursuing a multifaceted approach that combines peer support, persondriven plans and other supports with medication at an individual's optimal level, if needed, we are witnessing results with much better long-term success," said Dr. Gina Firman Nikkel, president and CEO of the Foundation

Improved research is leading to better options for mental health recovery. for Excellence in Mental Health Care. Part of the equation is recognizing that psychiatric medications can come with side effects, and because each person's chemistry differs, these can range from minor to significant. Over long periods of use in particular, the side effects can outweigh the benefits, particularly when addiction is involved. This recovery model for

mental health care is not a one-size-fits-all cure. Because mental health issues develop regardless of age, race or income level, an approach that requires collaboration is crucial. Most importantly, individuals and their families who face mental health challenges need to realize that they have choices. Dr. Nikkel's organization, which was founded in MENTAL, See page 11B

You’re approaching 50 and can’t help but notice the signs of aging – your vision and hearing aren’t what they used to be, and it seems your cuts and bruises take longer to heal. But before you write off those and other symptoms as a normal part of getting older, be forewarned that they actually might be indicators of diabetes. Your risk of developing type 2 diabetes begins increasing as you age, especially if you are overweight (even if by only 10 pounds). Factors such as a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high triglyceride levels, low HDL cholesterol and being African American, Latino, American Indian or Asian also can put you at increased risk. The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) recommends asking your doctor about get-

ting tested for diabetes if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, particularly if you are 45 or older. Are you: 1. Finding it more difficult to see or hear clearly? Everyone around you seems to be mumbling all of the sudden and you find yourself squinting to clear your blurry vision. Hearing loss is twice as common in people with diabetes as in

those who don’t have the disease, according to research. Doctors aren’t sure why, but believe it might be because diabetes damages blood vessels and nerves in the body, including those in the ear. Buildup of glucose in the blood can damage your eyesight, too, by distorting the shape of the lens in your eye and making your vision blurry. 2. Feeling tired and grouchy? You’re getting older, so you get tired more easily, right? Perhaps. Or maybe because of type 2 diabetes your body isn’t effectively converting glucose to energy and so you feel exhausted all of the time. And when you’re tired, you’re irritable. 3. Experiencing odd symptoms? Other unexpected indications of diabetes include dry, itchy skin, the development of DIABETES, See page 11B

A Little Wine Might Help Kidneys Stay Healthy

By Kathleen Doheny An occasional glass of wine might help keep your kidneys healthy, new research suggests. And for those who already have kidney disease, which puts one at higher risk for cardiovascular problems, moderate wine drinking might help the heart, the researchers added. “Those [with healthy kidneys] who drank less than one glass of wine a day had a 37 percent lower risk of having chronic kidney disease than those who drank no wine,” said study author Dr. Tapan Mehta, a renal fellow at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center, in Aurora. “Those with chronic kidney disease who drank less than one glass a day had a 29 percent lower risk of cardiovascular events [than those who drank no wine],” he added. Mehta and his colleagues looked at data from the 2003 to 2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination that included nearly 6,000 people. Of those, about 1,000 had chronic kidney disease.

Netflix and Hulu are Starting to Facebook Will Now Tell Your Kill Cable 'Friends' When You Are Nearby

By Timothy Stenovec Cable companies, you've been put on notice. Cord cutting -- ditching your steep monthly cable or satellite bill and instead watching video online -- is on the rise, according to a new report from Experian Marketing Services. In fact, some young adults may never even pay for cable TV in their lifetimes. The number of cordcutters, which Experian considers people with high-speed Internet who've either never subscribed to or stopped subscribing to cable or satellite, has risen from 5.1 million homes to 7.6 million homes, or 44 percent, in just three years. In 2013, 6.5 percent of households in the U.S. had cut the cord, Experian found, up from 4.5 percent in 2010. What's more interesting, though, is that number goes way up for households that use Netflix or Hulu, the subscription services that stream movies and TV shows online. Nearly a fifth of Americans who use Netflix or Hulu don't subscribe to cable TV. And that number gets even higher if you look at a younger segment of the population. Almost a quarter of young adults between

18 and 34 who subscribe to Netflix or Hulu don't pay for TV, Experian found. And who can blame them? TV is pricey. The average cable TV bill, not including fees, promotions or taxes, has increased by a whopping 97 percent over the past 14 years, according to the media research firm SNL Kagan. That bill could reach a whopping $200 per month by 2020, one study found. That could spell trouble for cable companies like Comcast and Charter down the line. "The young millennials who are just getting started on their own may never pay for television," said John Fetto, a senior analyst at Experian Marketing

By Betsy Isaacson Prophecies abound of BlackBerry's demise, but the Canadian smartphone company is still making investments -- including collaborating with Patrick Soon-Shiong, founder of health care IT company NantHealth and mobile

innovator NantMobile, to create what Soon-Shiong calls a "novel" smartphone. Soon-Shiong and BlackBerry's plans are ambitious, to say the least. By the end of the year, they hope to deliver a new BlackBerry smartphone with two features large-

Services. "Pay TV is definitely declining." Fetto said that cable companies, which of course are often also the gatekeepers to the Internet, will have to get more creative with their billing to make up for the revenue lost by people who are cutting the cord. So-called "data caps" -- which limit the amount of data a person can download each month before they're charged overage fees -- are already in place in more than 60 percent of homes in the U.S., according to GigaOm. We may also see more tiered pricing models, which would charge more to people who stream more, Fetto said.

BlackBerry's Next Move May Be a Phone That Keeps You Healthy

Patrick Soon-Shiong ly unknown to the general public: NantHealth's Clinical Operating System (cOS), which aims to improve doctor and patient access to patient health data, and NantMobile's iD Browser, a system for scanning and searching the "real world" via smartphone camera. The Clinical Operating System was built to slurp up most types of medical data. Currently cOS can grab info directly from 1600 types of medical device, including ventilators, glucose monitors and IV drips. It can also mine and integrate most forms of electronic medical records, meaning that, for example, a physician will be able to see a patient's clinical history, their co-pay data and notes from previous visits, all in one place. If NantHealth’s cOS is meant to take the mystery out of medical science, NantMobile’s iD Browser aims to take the mystery out of everything else. An iD Browser works with a smartphone’s camera. Point a phone equipped with iD at a movie poster, and the phone displays movie trailers, reviews and the option to buy tickets. Similar things happen with sports logos and popular retail products.

By Alexis Kleinman Facebook has always been creepy. But now it's allowing you to be creepy, too! The site started rolling out an "optional" new mobile feature called Nearby Friends, which alerts you when your friends are nearby (and vice versa.) But if you fear weirdos, don't worry: The feature will only load if you opt-in and turn it on. Facebook also lets you decide which of your friends can view your location, and those friends can only do so if they allow you to view them too. The feature was announced in a blog post by Facebook Product Manager Andrea Vaccari. You can use Nearby Friends however you want. Want to only be visible to certain groups (like "family" or "close friends") or specific friends? That's cool. Want to be visible to your entire friends list?

That's fine too. Want to turn it off completely? Chill. You can also share your specific location with someone for a short time period, setting it so your friend can only see your location for an hour or two. For example, say you're meeting up with a friend in a big park. You can share your location with your friend via Facebook and he or she will be

able to find you on a map. Since Facebook is notorious for having confusing privacy settings, and because everyone has Facebook "friends" who really aren't friends at all, this new feature might raise some eyebrows. So here's to hoping Nearby Friends will be more straightforward than, say, everything else about the site.

How to Recognize and Avoid Identity Theft Scams

(NewsUSA) - Across the nation, identity thieves are using legitimate information to scam honest taxpayers, and frequently posing as the IRS to do so. So, what can you do? The IRS is taking this seriously, and has created the IRS Identity Theft Protection Unit to address the growing problem. However, being aware of some of the most common scams can help protect you from having your personal information used to commit fraud or other crimes. Phony IRS emails. In a "phishing" scam, an official-looking email shows an IRS logo that lures the consumer to a website that requests personal and financial information, such as a Social Security number, bank account, or credit card numbers. In truth, the IRS does not send out unsolicited emails and does not use email to ask for detailed personal or financial information such as PIN numbers, passwords or similar secret access information for credit cards or bank accounts. The only genuine IRS website is

Know which tax websites are safe. www.IRS.gov. Refund scam. In a refund scam, a bogus e-mail tells the recipient that he or she is eligible to receive a federal tax refund for a given amount (often $63.80) and sends the recipient to a website to complete a form to submit the tax refund request. The form then asks for personal and financial information. In fact, the IRS does not notify taxpayers of refunds via e-mail. Antifraud Commission scam. In this case, the scammer sends an email stating the IRS "Antifraud Commission" has found that someone tried to pay their taxes through the Electronic Federal Tax Payment

System, or EFTPS, using the email recipient's credit card. As a result, some of the recipient's money was lost and the remaining funds were blocked. The e-mail includes a link that sends the recipient to a website where he or she is directed to enter personal and financial information in order to unblock their funds. Don't take the bait! The IRS does not have an antifraud commission. Get help. A taxpayer who believes they may have received a fraudulent or otherwise questionable communication related to taxes should contact a licensed tax professional. Enrolled agents (EAs) are America's tax experts. They are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. That means that if you get a letter from the IRS, or worse, are audited or are the target of a collection action, your EA can speak directly to the IRS on your behalf.

By Gerry Smith The number of smartphone thefts nearly doubled last year, according to a new survey that suggests the crime is rapidly spreading while industry and law-enforcement officials bicker over a solution. More than 3 million Americans were victims of smartphone theft in 2013, compared with 1.6 million the year before, according to a survey by Consumer Reports. Another 1.4 million smartphones were lost and never recovered last year, according to the survey, which projected these numbers using a poll of 3,000 adults. The spike comes as the smartphone industry and law enforcement officials argue over the best

way to fight the problem. Earlier this week, smartphone makers and wireless companies announced they would introduce new antitheft technology next year that would render a stolen phone inoperable. A feature that lets victims disable stolen devices could drastically reduce phone thefts because criminals would no longer have an incentive to steal them. But the industry’s commitment fell short of what law-enforcement officials have demanded: a “kill switch” that is automatically activated on every phone. They argue that consumers should be required to opt out of using the kill switch because they are unlikely to turn on

the feature themselves. The results of the Consumer Reports survey appear to support their argument: Most people fail to activate even the most basic smartphone security features. For example, only one-third of people lock their phones with four-digit pin codes, and only 22 percent have installed software that can find their phone if it is ever lost or stolen, the survey found. “Our survey revealed that the number of lost and stolen smart phones is on the rise, and too many smartphone users are needlessly imperiling their personal data by not taking basic security measures,” said Glenn Derene, the electronics editor at Consumer Reports.

Commentary Beyond the Rhetoric:

George E. Curry

Harry C. Alford has used the same tactics against Be-Well Marketing, Hello Product LLC and Clio Inc., three companies that were supplying oral care products to retailers such as Target, CVS and Rite-Aid who service millions of Ohio’s citizens. It would be one thing if P&G had a case; every company has a right to defend its patents. But P&G’s claims are highly suspect. Be-Well and Hello Product exited the market simply because they could not afford the legal costs to defend their position. Clio, however, requested a review from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Trial and Appeal Board. This review upheld Clio’s petition for invalidation of P&G’s patents. In a further setback for P&G, the review board also found that P&G’s own patent claims might be invalid and concluded that Clio would likely prevail in the final USPTO ruling expected in this fall. Rather than rethink its position, P&G decided to double down. It has petitioned the U.S. District Court in Southern District of Ohio, Western Division, which, located in Cincinnati, is literally the company’s home court, for a ruling on its patent claim later this summer, before

the USPTO can invalidate its claim outright. This is the wrong way to go because, in the end, everyone loses. In some respects, the damage has already been done. Generic brands often sell for half the price of name brands like P&G’s competing Crest. When they disappear from store shelves, consumers lose. We can be thankful that the Ohio economy is slowly recovering, but many consumers are still economizing and store brands offer a real savings for households on a tight budget. P&G’s shareowners and employees lose, too. Since it is looking doubtful P&G’s claims will stand up, the legal costs it is incurring to press the case will be wasted. This hurts doubly in light of P&G’s February announcement that it was shedding 5,700 nonmanufacturing jobs as part of a plan to reduce costs by $10 billion. These job losses and spending cuts hurt the Cincinnati community as well. Unfortunately, P&G’s use of patent litigation is part of a disturbing trend in courts across America. P&G, See page 11B

As we approach May 17, the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education landmark decision outlawing “separate but equal” schools, several studies show that our schools are more segregated now than they were three decades ago. And there are no indications that things are likely to change for the better in the foreseeable future. A report by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) titled, “Brown v. Board at 60,” concluded, “Today, things are getting worse. The typical black student now attends a school where only 29 percent of his or her fellow students are white, down from 36 percent in 1980.” Actually there were two Brown decisions. The first, in 1954, outlawed racially segregated public schools, which had been defended as “separate but equal.” Faced with foot-dragging by intransigent school officials in the Deep South, the Supreme Court issued a second ruling in 1955, sometimes called Brown II, declaring that the schools had to be desegregated “with all deliberate speed.” But speed was nowhere to be found. Two years after the court ruling, no Black child attended schools with

Richard B. Muhammad minister to a climate or in the same philosophical universe as a man whose history is apparently tied to hate groups. Their attempts to malign the Minister are beyond insulting and outside the bounds of any commitment to truth and any respect for the truth. Minister Farrakhan’s name must never be mentioned in the same breath as wicked murderers who exist among Caucasian people or accused killers like Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Mo., charged with first-degree murder after attacks at a Jewish community center and a Jewish retirement complex. His name must never be mentioned alongside anyone who takes life unjustly and anyone who foments violence and death. Minister Farrakhan has never been arrested for spitting on a sidewalk, let alone physically assaulting anyone. He is far above such cheap charges and such vicious, malicious and vociferous lies. The Minister speaks the truth and has spoken against Jewish misdeeds and organizations in relationship to the status of Blacks in this country and inordinate involvement in Black affairs and control

a White student in eight of the 11 former Confederate states, including Alabama. The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR), a coalition of nearly 200 organizations, noted, “It took ten years after Brown, but beginning with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the nation committed to desegregation and it worked. Courts and executive agencies consistently supported desegregation plans and from 1968 to 1988, as more schools integrated, academic achievement increased for African American students.” However, that progress stalled. “…The legal and political tide turned against integration during the 1980s,” LCCR observed. “Courts stopped ordering desegregation plans and began dismantling existing plans – both court-ordered and voluntary. Federal agencies stopped aggressive enforcement and by 1989 schools were beginning to resegregate, reversing many of the academic gains of the previous 20 years.” Upon entering office in 1981, President Ronald Reagan set the political climate for retrenchment. And so did an increasingly conservative Supreme Court. But some African-

American leaders also played a role in dismantling desegregation. An investigation of resegregation in the South, conducted by ProPublica, focused on Tuscaloosa, Ala., my hometown. The city had been under a federal desegregation decree since 1979. In 1993, with Tuscaloosa vying for a new MercedesBenz plant, business leaders decided it was time for them to make a move. “Publicly, the city’s movers and shakers said the lack of neighborhood schools made the district unattractive … Behind closed doors, they argued that if they did not create some schools where white students made up the majority – or near it – they’d lose the white parents still remaining,” the investigation found. “Districts under desegregation orders aren’t supposed to take actions that increase racial separation. And so the city’s leadership decided the desegregation order needed to go, and they believed the time was ripe for a court to agree.” SEGREGATED, See page 11B

Minister Farrakhan is No Terrorist The news cycle April 14 was filled with reports of the murders of three people in Overland Park, Kansas that these killings occurred during a time of religious observation, the Jewish celebration of Passover, and the killer may have targeted victims for their religious faith or presumed faith makes the loss of life even more reprehensible. That a grandfather and his grandson could be shot down in the streets says something about the sickness of this society, the prevalence and continued cancer of hatred and an unhealthy and deadly obsession with guns and solving problems or disputes with violence. Such activity is woven into the history of this nation and America cannot deny that her history is bathed in blood and oppression from the slaughter of the Native peoples to the April 13 killing of Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood. In the midst of this horrible reality, the Southern Poverty Law Center, some Jewish leaders and organizations were speaking the name Louis Farrakhan alongside false charges of hate speech and trying to link the Nation of Islam

Schools More Segregated Now than Three Decades Ago

Consumers and Small Business Lose in P&G Patent Litigation

Procter & Gamble enjoys a long, proud history as a major Cincinnati employer. Its history goes back more than 175 years and today it owns many of the world’s most recognized brands with wellearned reputations for quality. My first corporate job was with this magnificent company. Its main strengths are Research/Development and Marketing. That’s why it’s all the more disappointing to see P&G take the low road of dubious patent litigation to compete in a marketplace where it has consistently prevailed with competitive products and the innovation needed to keep pace with changing consumer trends. Procter & Gamble has become a “Patent Troll”. In the last few years, P&G appears to have shifted its competitive focus away from innovation and competitive product development and toward the courtroom. For example, the company has been aggressively pursuing makers of competing brands of toothpaste and teethwhitening strips with questionable claims of patent infringement. P&G used patent litigation to kick out Johnson & Johnson from the teeth whitening strip market in 2008. Since 2012, it

Neither he, nor any of his followers, has been arrested in 30 years for threatening, hurting, harming or denying one Jewish person the right to life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness. Yet, wicked demons attempt to impugn his character and slander his name as families and a community suffers because of the unjustified taking of lives. This is not the history of Louis Farrakhan, this is not the spirit of Louis Farrakhan, this is not the way of Louis Farrakhan. This violence is the product of America and her twisted psyche and mentality that Louis Farrakhan has warned of and has offered a medicine to heal. Instead of taking the medicine and getting into therapy, these wicked ones denounce the doctor and attempt to blame the doctor for the illness.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio ran on a campaign to fund full-day public preschool for all New York City children through a modest increased income tax on residents making more than $500,000 a year. Although Mayor de Blasio’s tax proposal was not approved by the state legislature or supported by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the legislature did approve statewide funding for preK that included a $300 million increase for New York City’s preschool program. This means that for the first time fully funded fullday quality preschool will be available for all 4-yearolds in the city. New York City is moving forward for children – and it isn’t the only major city or and school district making such progress. The Boston Public Schools system (BPS) offers a full day of prekindergarten to any four-year-old in the district regardless of income, although funding limitations prevent the district from serving all eligible children. BPS ensures the quality of its prekindergarten program through high-quality teachers, professional development delivered through individualized coaching sessions, and evidence-based curri-

cula for early language and literacy and mathematics. Prekindergarten teachers have the same requirements as K-12 teachers in BPS and are paid accordingly. And it’s working. A study conducted by researchers at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education examined the impact of one year of attendance in the BPS preschool program on children’s school readiness and found substantial positive effects on children’s literacy, language, mathematics, emotional development, and executive functioning. Tulsa is another city making great strides. Oklahoma has offered universal preschool to 4-year-olds since 1998. In the 20112012 school year, threequarters of all 4-year-olds in the state were enrolled in the preschool program. High-quality year-round programs are also available to some at-risk Tulsa children from birth through age three through the Community Action Project (CAP) of Tulsa County, which combines public and private funds to provide comprehensive services for the youngest and most vulnerable children. Oklahoma’s preschool teachers are required to have a bachelor’s degree

with a certificate in early childhood and are also paid equally to K-12 teachers. Preschool is funded through the state’s school finance formula, although districts can subcontract with other providers of early care and education by putting public school teachers in communitybased settings and Head Start programs. Researchers from Georgetown University have conducted multiple evaluations of the 4-year-old preschool program in Tulsa over the last decade and found evidence of both short and long term gains, with the most persistent gains in math for the neediest children who are eligible for free and reduced price lunch. A long term economic projection of the future adult earnings effects of Tulsa’s program estimates benefit-to-cost ratios of 3- or 4-to-1. New Jersey has offered high-quality state-funded preschool to 3- and 4-yearold children in 31 highpoverty communities since 1999 in response to a series of state Supreme Court rulings starting with Abbott v.

FUNERAL From page 1A From page 1A personal advocate who assists the family during funeral arrangements. “Basically, their niche is that they work with an organization called Funeral Guardian Society,” said Davis. “When you have a Funeral Advantage policy with Lincoln Heritage, you also have the representative from FGS who helps work with the family to plan the final expense and/or funeral.” For Davis, who owns both the Clinical Training Institute and the Quality Life Insurance Agency in Oxnard, the appeal of this type of plan is the personal attention it offers to the family dealing with the aftermath of a loved one’s death. “It provides an opportunity for the insured to plan everything in advance, and they do this planning with a rep from Funeral Guardian Society.” What a plan like LHFA may also offer is the luxury of time. Rather than waiting for an estate settlement and having to cobble enough cash together to cover funeral costs, LHFA allows the process and payment of funeral costs to be immediate. “With this plan,” said Davis, “within 24 hours, a representative will come in. When the designated family member calls the rep, they’ll follow the deceased’s plan to the T.” The plan itself is a whole life policy with a cash reserve, double indemnity, and a rider to add a child up to age 18. Because it involves a cash reserve rather than advance paid funeral arrangements, LHFA is not locked into any particular cemetery or funeral home. “You tell them what you want and they will look for the best program within the area,” Davis explained, “and it will all be done within 24 hours. You don’t have to worry about a time period waiting for your money to arrive.” Like any standard insurance policy, there are some caveats. For instance, in the case of serious health concerns such as cancer or being diagnosed as HIV positive, some people may not qualify for this plan. Premiums will also depend on your age and life variables such as smoking or other risk factors. Forethought is the most important tool a person can use when thinking about their life, death, funeral arrangements, and estate planning. Having a living will is considered one essential element. Organizing your documents—life insurance, wills, social security information—so they can be easily accessed is another. Writing out your obituary and funeral service is a third and quite helpful detail. But the most important thing the living can accomplish is to do their own due diligence on funeral planning. The goal is to allow the legal and financial aftermath following death to be arranged so that friends and family can focus on what’s really important at a funeral—memorializing your life. For Davis, it’s important to make a plan while time is still on the side of the living. “When a person has all their mental faculties and they can think about it, that’s the best time to do it,” he said. For more information about LHFA, Davis can be reached at (805) 217-2301. There’s no fee for a consultation. Davis also offers a complete review of current life insurance needs as part of the consultation. As always, shop around, do research, and find out what’s best for your personal needs. But most important, do something now to make your death and funeral easy to manage. Your friends and family will thank you long after you’ve been laid to rest. ACTION From page 1A all but killed the measure this year. “I was surprised,” said Sen. Ed Hernandez, D-Covina, the author of the bill. “I didn’t expect it.” Asian-American students are enrolled at many of California’s top schools in numbers far greater than their proportion of the state’s population. Critics of Hernandez’s plan worry that qualified students would be dismissed simply because of their ethnicity. The ensuing debate has reopened an old fissure over the role of race in college admissions, divided Democrats along racial lines and created an opportunity for the California GOP. California voters were the first in the nation to ban the use of affirmative action in university admissions in 1996. Hernandez’s proposal was his fourth attempt to undo that action, which he says harms black and Latino students. A similar voter-approved ban in Michigan was upheld by the nation’s highest court Tuesday, but that ruling is not expected to change the discussion in California, where the prohibition is likely to remain in place independent of the court decision. Hernandez’s proposal sailed through the state Senate in January on a Democratic Party-line vote. Legislative leaders, however, pulled the bill before it could be debated in the Assembly after the harsh reaction. The controversy highlights the complexity of racial politics in California, where the public school system has struggled for

decades to improve achievement. Critics of the affirmative action ban say it’s part of a school system that fails black and Latino students. Blacks and Latinos are more likely to attend the state’s lowestperforming schools than their white or Asian counterparts, affecting their ability to be accepted into four-year universities, where they are underrepresented. Rather than debate Hernandez’s proposal, lawmakers now plan to hold hearings about affirmative action and other aspects of campus equality. The state’s governing party has split along racial lines. Three Asian-American senators, all Democrats who were seeking higher office at the time, withdrew their support of the bill after being bombarded by public criticism. Six black and Latino lawmakers have since withdrawn their endorsements of Sen. Ted Lieu, who is Chinese-American, in a Los Angeles-area congressional race where he faces another Democrat in the primary. And some black and Latino Assembly members this month withheld votes from unrelated legislation about the state’s carpool program by Assemblyman Al Muratsutchi, D-Torrance, who is Japanese-American. The Senate’s Democratic leader, President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, acknowledged the animosity. He said in a statement that he wanted “a serious and sober examination” of affirmative action, adding “I am deeply concerned anytime one ethnic group turns on another.” In recent statistics, the University of California system said 36 percent of its in-state freshman admissions offers for fall 2014 are to Asian-American students, 29 percent are for Latino students, 27 percent are for white students and 4 percent of offers are to black students. At some campuses, including UC San Diego and UC Irvine, Asian-American students accounted for more than 45 percent of admitted freshmen last year. Hispanics have slightly overtaken whites as the largest ethnic group in California, although both groups represent about 39 percent of the population. AsianAmericans — a population that includes Filipinos, Chinese, Indians, Japanese, Vietnamese, Laotians and others — comprise about 13 percent. Blacks are less than 6 percent. Hernandez said nothing in his proposal would impose quotas based on ethnicity, which have been ruled unconstitutional. He said race, ethnicity and gender would be added to a list of factors college admissions officers already consider, such as extracurricular activities and family income. “Rather than create a wedge, my idea is to have a real public debate about this,” he said. “What’s wrong with talking about race?” Asian voters are a rising political force in California, said Karthick Ramakrishnan, a political science professor at the University of California, Riverside and director of the National Asian American Survey. While they typically lean Democratic, the voting bloc is not strongly loyal to either party, meaning “if you’re trying to either win or defeat a statewide proposition, you ignore AsianAmerican voters at your peril,” Ramakrishnan said. Republicans have struggled to attract younger and non-white voters since 1994, when Republican Gov. Pete Wilson supported Proposition 187, a proposal that banned immigrants in the country illegally from access to most social services, and the constitutional amendment that prohibited the use of racial considerations in education, state hiring and contracting, Proposition 209 in 1996. Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma and Washington subsequently adopted similar bans. Republicans are now capitalizing on the controversy by targeting upwardly mobile Asian-Americans. Peter Kuo, a Republican candidate for state Senate, has been outspoken on the issue during his campaign for an eastern San Francisco Bay Area district that is 40 percent Asian-American. “The Democratic Party is the party using the name of equality and diversity to lower the standard and preventing us from going into higher education,” said Kuo, who came with his family from Taiwan when he was 14. “I can’t go and tell my kids, ‘Hey, because you’re Asian you can’t get into the school you want,’” he said.

HABIT #6- Unsuccessful People Waste Their Time They don’t know what to do next. They often eat too much, drink too much, watch TV and sports for hours or play video games all day, and have no thoughts whatsoever about what direction their life is going. Most of their time is spent on instant gratification and they avoid thinking about and proving the

quality of their life. HABIT # 7- Unsuccessful People Take the Easy Way Out If there are two roads to choose from, unsuccessful people will choose the wider road with less reward now than the narrower road with much greater reward in the future (according to the bible). They avoid anything that may cause temporary hardship. They want an easy life. What these people don’t know is that what you reap is what you sow. Efforts and action will not go unnoticed. If only they would be willing to sacrifice a little, they would gain a lot more. Successful people reach their goals, dreams and desires through trial and error. They never give up. They do what it takes to create what they desire. What is the solution to these 7 unsuccessful Habits? Just do the reverse. Success is not difficult. All it takes to succeed is to discover what unsuccessful people do- and then just do the opposite. You are virtually guaranteed to succeed!

PLACE From page 2A within one month, one year, another for five years and another for what you would like to see in ten years. Looking at the long term can be a bit much for those that are dealing with some tough situations and circumstances. To those people, I will say: try to get where you are going one day at a time; one moment at a time if you need to. It has been said it takes 7 days to break a habit, 3 weeks to form a new one and 3 months to form a new lifestyle. All people long for a sense of fulfillment, but we may go about it differently. Let’s just make sure we’re not competing against each other for those them! If people choose to humble themselves and not only care about their own agenda, they would find that having a bigger and better team could take them further. The specific goals will indeed vary. However, we could collaborate and each benefit from the efforts of others strengths and expertise, thereby reaching our indivudal and the greater common goals of the team. We don’t have lose focus on what we are doing in order to team up. If we put together our brain power, our resources, our efforts and our energy, the possibilities could be endless and one could see an excelleration of achievement that might take longer alone. We can all get to where we are going a lot faster if we would work together. We could ALL win through self actualization and a focus on benefitting our community and thereby the world in the process.

GM From page 3A and I was on a mission,” Welburn recalled, chuckling. “They thought, ‘Well, maybe he should be a mechanic or something. No, he wants to be a car designer.’ So they did everything to help me realize that dream,” Welburn recalled several hours before speaking at the 50th anniversary summit of the 1964 Civil Rights Act at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library, where GM served as the lead sponsor. His father, Edward, Sr., who owned his own auto mechanic shop, encouraged his son to work on his car designs; his mother, Evelyn, made sure young Ed never strayed academically. “As a kid, I was a slow reader,” Welburn remembered. “I didn’t like reading at all. My mother sent me to all kinds of special programs every weekend. Then, she discovered how I loved reading car magazines. I was age 10 when I got subscriptions to Hot Rod, Motor Trends, all of these. I would read these magazines cover-to-cover.” When he was 11 years old, Welburn wrote a letter to General Motors asking for advice on how to become a car designer. To his surprise, he got a detailed reply, including a recommendation to get a college education. Welburn did that at Howard University, graduating in 1972 from its College of Fine Arts, where he studied sculpture and product design. While enrolled as a student at Howard, he interned at General Motors. He started his career at GM in 1972 as an associate designer in the Advanced Design Studios. The next year, he joined the Buick Exterior Studio, working on the Buick Riviera and Park Avenue. In 1975, he joined the Oldsmobile Exterior. In 1989, he was promoted to chief designer of the Oldsmobile Studio. In 1996, Welburn accepted a 2-year assignment with Saturn, working mostly out of its Russelsheim, Germany studio. He became director of GM’s Advanced Design studio in Warren, Mich. After several key assignments, he was named vice president of GM Design North America in 2003 and two years later was selected to fill the newly-created position of vice president for Global Design. Welburn has repeatedly demonstrated that he knows how to connect with GM’s customers, having had a hand in the design of such best-sellers as the Cadillac Escalade, Hummer H2, Chevrolet Avalanche and the SSR, a retro hot-rod pickup. Even with a heavy work load that requires him to be in the office from 6 am to 6 pm to communicate with designers living in different time zones, Welburn devotes personal time and money to encourage other African Americans to pursue design careers. He serves on the board of Detroit’s College of Creative Studies and serves as GM’s liaison to Howard University, his alma mater. He also interacts with other top design schools, always letting them know in his understated manner that they need to do more to improve diversity in the industry. And he is not unaware that he is the ultimate diversity story. “It’s interesting because it’s something I don’t celebrate because to celebrate it means there are so many years it didn’t occur,” he said in an interview with Ward’s Auto World. “… But I know it is very important. It can’t be ignored. I know it isn’t ignored, and I know there are a lot of people in the African-American community that really, really consider this something very significant, so I don’t take it lightly. If it has an effect on young people, then I think that’s great.” It’s great that the basement of his design studio headquarters in Warrensville, Mich. has become a favorite hangout for Detroitarea high school students who dream of following in Welburn’s footsteps. GM designers volunteer time at the center, hoping to encourage a new generation of artists. “There’s one kid who’s really good,” said Welburn. “His church has set up a system where each week, somebody from the church goes and get him. They make sure he gets there.” Getting to the top of his craft, means that Welburn has to be on the road a lot, traveling to 10 design studios in the United States and six other countries: Germany, Korea, China, Australia, Brazil and India. Back home in Michigan, he has become a recognizable public figure, even by children who dream, just as he did, of becoming a car designer. He recalled, “I was in this restaurant one night and this little kid [motioning to the height of a dinner table] came up with a piece of paper and he said he had an idea for a car. And he just stood there at the end of the table and he drew the car and gave it to me.” Welburn graciously accepted

the drawing. And that’s not the only public interaction that he enjoys. “It’s kind of interesting to sit in traffic and see a family in one of your latest products and see how happy they are. That feels very good,” he said. Welburn said it also feels very good to see the joy in the eyes of designers when he accepts one of their ideas. “When a young designer’s design is picked and I say, ‘That’s the design we’re going with,’ it just…”Welburn’s smile completes the unfinished sentence. “And it doesn’t matter if they’re 20 years old nor 50 years old – it’s like they are 14.” When asked the about the most difficult part of his job, Welburn is succinct: “”Managing 2,500 creative individuals in a corporate world.” Judging by the awards, he has managed well. In 2008, the Chevrolet Malibu was named North American Car of the Year. In 2010, the Chevrolet Camaro was picked the 2010 World Car Design of the Year and in 2011, the Chevrolet Volt, a revolutionary electric car, was selected North American Car of the Year. But the most significant recognition GM received was the trust Presidents Bush and Obama – and the American people – gave it in 2008 and 2009 with a federal bailout. The Treasury Department extended a loan of $49.5 billion, secured by 912 million shares of GM stock, or a 60.8 percent stake. After it sold its last share of stocks, the federal government lost $10.5 billion on the GM deal. According to the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich., if the government hadn’t intervened and GM went out of business, nearly 1.9 million jobs would have been lost in 2009 and 2010, resulting in a loss of $394 billion in tax revenues and payments for unemployment benefits and food stamps. Although it lost money on GM, the federal government said it made a profit on the $421.8 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). After being paid back from banks and other financial institutions, the Treasury Department said it made a $11 billion profit on TARP. The significance of Welburn’s contributions to the turnaround at GM was underscored last year at the Washington Auto Show when he and President Obama sat alone in a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu. The most powerful leader in the world was sitting next to the highest-ranking African American in the automobile industry. “He just let me know how proud he was with the work that I do, and I was just like ‘Wow,’” Welburn told reporters. “At the very last vehicle, he did ask me, he just remarked that the design of GM cars have gotten so much better in the past few years.” And the president would know. His official limousine, sometimes dubbed Cadillac One or Limo One, was built on the Cadillac DTS model. Though Welburn’s dream of becoming a car designer never extended to meeting the first Black president of the United States, he is as exuberant about his career choice now as he was when his parents took him to that memorable auto show in Philadelphia. “I have so much fun doing what I do –I really do,” he said. “It’s not easy and there are significant challenges every day. But it’s soooo much fun.” STUDENTS From page 5A “unsatisfactory” than students in low-poverty schools, the report notes. Results are similar for schools with a high concentration of minority students. Another Center For American Progress study analyzed the root causes for what is called the unequal distribution of teachers. The report noted that while No Child Left Behind previously asked states to devise plans that would ensure the equitable distribution of teachers, subsequent waivers gave states flexibility from these requirements. “Regardless of how it is measured, teacher quality is not distributed equitably across schools and districts. Poor students and students of color are less likely to get well-qualified or high-value teachers than students from higher-income families or students who are white,” says the report.

'Rock Of Ages' Creator Aims to Prince Drops New Single 'The Breakdown' Bring 'Soul Train' to Broadway

By Mark Kennedy NEW YORK — The groundbreaking song-anddance show "Soul Train" is chugging toward Broadway. Stage and film producer Matthew Weaver, who helped create "Rock of Ages," has acquired the theatrical stage rights to the TV show and said he's hoping to repeat his success by turning "Soul Train" into a show that attracts both diehard Broadway fans and those who usually avoid Times Square. "I'm nervous and I'm humbled and I'm excited," said Weaver, who heads the production company MediaWeaver Entertainment. "I do think we're the right people to do it because I think it's got to have that spirit of 'Rock of Ages,' which is part oldfashioned musical but also part party." "Soul Train," with its trademark animated train opening, provided a national, weekly showcase for R&B artists, black cul-

'The Keke Palmer Project' Set to Make Television History

Keke Palmer is set to make talk show history this summer with the debut of her new daily BET show tentatively titled, “The Keke Palmer Project.” According to a press release provided by BET and Telepictures, the 20-yearold actress will target millennial viewers as she covers an array of topics and issues ranging from social, pop culture, fashion sex, and more. Which makes her the youngest talk show host in television history. In addition to etching her name into the record books, the four-week test run in July is also produced

Keke Palmer by Judge Greg Mathis who was instrumental in establishing the relationship between Palmer and Telepictures.

Palmer’s passion for discussing various issues via social media is one of the many reasons why she has decided to venture into daytime television. "I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” she noted in the press release. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively!” “I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us."

The R&B-pop-dancesoul singer, who had a breakthrough with the 2003 adventurous hit "Milkshake," returns with an album full of soulful horns, lush strings and thumping piano keys that feel grand. A huge departure from 2010's electronic dance album, "Flesh Tone," Kelis' latest release shows she's just as versatile as her Neptunes-produced 1999 debut, "Kaleidoscope." With the success of "Milkshake," it's fitting that the Le Cordon Bleucertified chef and saucier finds success with cuisinethemed tunes, as she intertwines her love for food and music. Entirely produced by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, "Food" is her most mature album-to-date. Kelis masters a mix of jazz funk ("Jerk Ribs," ''Hooch"), Afrobeat ("Cobbler," ''Change") and gospel ("Breakfast," ''Biscuits n' Gravy") on her sixth album. Her smoky, sultry vocals perfectly match the blues-inspired "Floyd," where she asks her lover to bring some surprise and excitement to romance. "I want to be blown away, blow me away," Kelis angelically coos.

The Mighty Men of Bethel AME hosted the fifth annual “Come Fly with Me” Paper Airplane Contest Project

See page 15A By Mr. Buddy Gibson Oxnard, CA -- The Mighty Men of Bethel AME Church hosted the fifth annual "Come Fly with Me” Paper Airplane Contest (PAC). This year's theme was "If We Believe It, Then We Can Achieve It". Fifteen young men participated in three class groups: Class A (ages 9-12); Class B (ages 13-15); and Class C (ages 16-19). The first event was a red carpet field trip to the Camarillo Aviation Air Museum on January 18, 2014, for a morning tour of airplanes and lectures by museum volunteer staff. It was followed by a luncheon for the PAC Cadets at Café Amri, in Oxnard. The second event was a work-

shop and paper airplane contest held at the Juan Soria Elementary School Gymnasium in Oxnard, on February 15, 2014. The program featured three guest speakers. Bruce Stewart’s topic was "Heroes and History of the Red Tail Pilots of the Tuskegee Airmen". Albert Duff, Jr.’s topic was "Come Fly with Me" and Vincent Stewart’s topic was "The Way to Become a Cadet at the United States Air Force Academy and Its Rewards". The highlight of the day was the paper airplane contest itself. The PAC Cadets competed in three categories: flight distance, acrobatic flight and airplane design. On display at the event was an exhibit of contemporary and World War II African American “H.E.R.O.S.” figurines by Law-

rence Lee. Buddy Gibson and Lawrence Lee had model airplanes on display as well. The third event was the PAC Grand Awards Ceremony and Banquet held for all the winners that placed first, second and third in each of their classes on March 16, 2014, at Bethel AME Church, in Oxnard. Lee and Gibson provided a display of “H.E.R.O.E.S” figurines and model airplanes. The program featured two guest speakers: Dr. Eugene Fussell, renowned Ventura County Orthopedic Surgeon and Retired United States Navy Admiral, and Junior Air Force ROTC Cadet Nicholas Twine, Pilot Trainee and Oxnard High School sophomore. Dr. Fussell’s topic was "History of Heroes and What It Takes to

be an Achiever”. Twine’s topic was "What it Takes to Stay with Your Dream and Achieve It”. After the speeches, a luncheon was catered by Nawlinz Bistro Restaurant, located in Oxnard. After lunch, the Grand Awards were presented. The young men sat straight up in their chairs waiting for the big moment for the announcing of the winners. The Class A PAC Cadet winners were: Darren Holland, first place; Andrew Cornish, second place; and Giovanni Scott, 3rd place. The Class B PAC Cadet winners were: Amos Scott, first place; and Kameron Camerena, second place. The Class C PAC Cadet winners were: Albert Duff, III, first place; Jordan Gibson, second place; and Ruben France, third place. All

winners received trophies, medals, ribbons and certificates. The first place winners received their PAC star and a PAC Cadet hat. A cake was then cut and served. "I would like to thank my Bethel family male mentors and guest mentors," said Gibson. "This year's PAC project was a big success. The young men received so much from all of you and will never forget what you all have taught them through teamwork." Gibson continued, "You showed them about the flight of paper aerodynamics, history lessons, cultural awareness self-expression and creative designs of the fine arts of paper aircraft. A special thanks to our Master of Ceremonies, Marvin McKenzie, for an outstanding job."

Gibson finished with giving appreciation to the people who helped make the event a success. “I would also like to thank our Golden Sponsors: Bethel AME Church, Rev. Robert L.

News from the D.A. District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that Port Hueneme resident Julietta Quinones has been convicted of six felony counts of grand theft, one felony count of elder abuse, one felony count of filing a false tax return, and two felony counts of failing to file a tax return. The jury also found true a special allegation that she stole more than $200,000 from the elderly victim. The victim once owned 14 rental properties throughout Ventura County. She met Quinones at Uno Mas Realty in Oxnard, and entrusted Quinones to make her monthly mortgage payment on each rental property. The victim provided the defendant with signed, blank checks for that purpose. Instead, Quinones used the victim's checks for personal expenses in excess of $200,000. As a result, the victim lost all 14 rental properties. The Franchise Tax Board (FTB) investigation discovered that Quinones failed to declare the stolen monies as income on her 2009 tax return. The FTB also determined that Quinones failed to file tax returns in 2010 and 2011 as required. Superior Court Judge Mark Borrell remanded Quinones into custody following the jury's guilty verdicts. Quinones is currently being held at the Ventura County jail. She is scheduled to be sentenced on May 27, 2014, at 8:30 a.m. in courtroom 45. Quinones faces a maximum possible sentence of 12 years in state prison.

American Red Cross Honors Oxnard Fire Department

On Tuesday, April 29, at 1:30 p.m., Oxnard Firefighters were eloquently thanked and honored by the American Red Cross for their courage and bravery for extinguishing a wind driven fire that took place in October of 2013. The fire displaced over 70 people. The ceremony was held at Oxnard Fire Station #1 located at 491 S. K Street, in Oxnard. “I’m quite appreciative of the Red Cross recognizing our crews, our firefighters, as well as the firefighters in Santa Barbara County, for their efforts in fires that occurred that

day. We commend the Red Cross for their efforts in helping people around the world and here in Ventura County,” said Fire Chief James Williams. The Oxnard Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the City of Oxnard and is staffed by 87 uniformed members. “The Red Cross wanted to give us recognition for our efforts. On October 4, 2013, we had the Oxnard Boulevard fire where several mobile homes were destroyed by fire. On the same day in Santa Maria,

there was a big incident. A similar incident, so they wanted to recognize the region for their efforts on that day,” said Battalion Chief Sergio Martinez. The Mission of the Oxnard Fire Department is to serve the public and to safeguard the community by preventing or minimizing the impact of emergency situations to life, the environment, and property by responding to both emergency and non-emergency requests for service. Second and third from the left is Oxnard Fire Chief James Williams and Battalion Chief Sergio Martinez, respectively.

By Joshua Rhett Miller A new social media app that works like a localized, anonymous version of Twitter is rapidly gaining popularity on college campuses nationwide, but some educators fear it’s being used by high school students to issue threats and to bully classmates. Yik Yak was launched in December by Atlanta-area entrepreneurs Brooks Buffington and Tyler Droll, two recent college graduates who designed the app using geofencing technology to create countless small communities. The app works like a “virtual bulletin board” for any 1.5-mile radius, Droll told FoxNews.com. “With Yik Yak, we allow anyone to have that power, that audience,

and you’re not limited by who’s following who,” he said. “And this app isn’t a one-to-one messenger. Anyone within 1.5 miles can see it. We equate it to a virtual bulletin board.” Currently available for iOS and Android, Yik Yak allows users to vote on or reply to any so-called “Yak” posted anonymously using 200-character messages instead of Twitter’s 140-character limit. Although Yik Yak, which was designed with college campuses in my mind, restricts access on some 130,000 primary and secondary schools across the country, some parents and educators have raised concerns that younger kids are active on the service. Most recently, in Con-

necticut, parents received a message from Fairfield Public Schools warning them that Yik Yak was “creating opportunities for mean-spirited, bullying behavior” at some of its schools. “Upon researching this we have learned that Yik Yak has been causing many issues at middle schools, high schools, and colleges around the country,” the message read. “The issues range from bullying behavior, racial harassment, sexual harassment, to bomb threats and threats of physical violence.” As a result, district officials asked Yik Yak to utilize its GPS technology to block access to the app within all of its campuses.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of ZARA FLETCHER A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Carolyn Katzin in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Carolyn Katzin be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on May 28, 2014 at 9:00 AM in Dept. No. J6 located at 4353 E. Vineyard, Oxnard, CA 93036. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal

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

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 OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF LINDA LOU TIPICH Case No. 56-2014-00450073-PRPW-OXN

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of LINDA LOU TIPICH A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Debra Linsley in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Debra Linsley named in the will as Debra Sue Villa be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on May 22, 2014 at 9:00 AM in Dept. No. J6 located at 4353 E. Vineyard, Oxnard, CA 93036. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

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.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liend that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage of deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary,

trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $224,108.44 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include

all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08000272-141-FT. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. 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 appli-

cable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1451916.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may


Tri-County Sentry LAPD From page 6A conduct by a captain. Before the hearing, the captain called Whittingham a “traitor” and used epithets in her remarks, the suit says. The complaint also states that Whittingham was told by a deputy chief that Beck considers the conclusions of captains sitting on Board of Rights hearings in deciding whether their positions should be upgraded. Whittingham believed the comment was in reference to the times his opinions regarding officer misconduct allegations during Board of Rights hearings did not coincide with Beck’s, according to the complaint. Whittingham says he also believes that his decision to stand up for the rights of Black officers as an active member of the Oscar Joe Bryant organization — named for a Black LAPD officer killed in action in 1968 – also has been held against him within the LAPD hierarchy. JUDGE From page 7A Graham (R-S.C.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.) declined to attend, as did Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), who represents Charleston. All three had been invited to attend. A staffer for Scott went in the senator’s place. Scott is currently one of just two African-American Republicans in the Senate and the first from the South since Reconstruction. Graham told The Post and Courier that he had “something ... planned several months before.” His campaign specified that he had a large event in the afternoon. Scott’s spokesman, according to the paper, said the senator “had some previously scheduled meetings in Dorchester County that day, and then some personal things that needed attending.” And Sanford’s spokesman told The Post and Courier that “he spent that Friday working in his D.C. office before driving to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville to attend parent’s weekend with his son, Marshall.” NAACP From page 7A From Hilary Shelton, the Director of the NAACP Washington Bureau and the Sr. VP of Policy & Advocacy: “The NAACP is outraged with the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Michigan’s ban on the use of equal opportunity programs such as affirmative action as race conscious solutions must be available for racially discriminatory problems. As we approach the 60th anniversary of Brown v. the Board of Education, we are reminded that there remain challenges to securing educational opportunities for all Americans regardless of race or ethnicity. The Supreme Court has impeded our country’s efforts to address the underrepresentation of racial and ethnic minorities in higher education and puts the access of future generations to high quality and well-rounded education in serious jeopardy.” JURY From page 7A the Emergency Room, which she immediately did. Upon arrival, they discovered that she had a bradycardia, and was administered two units of blood over her four-day stay in the emergency room and hospital. Prior to the incident Ms. Peters rarely visited the doctor. Usually once a year for a routine check-up and for pregnancy related visits only, and prior to the procedure the only ailment she was diagnosed with was menstrual cycle related anemia. From the date of the procedure, Ms. Peters has had numerous appointments with many doctors in various specialties, sometimes as many as four per week. She has suffered from damage in the heart, lung, brain, thymus, pancreas, and both eyes which have resulted in her being diagnosed with Lung Nodules, Asthma, Glaucoma ,Insulin dependent diabetes, Lupus, Cognitive Memory Impairment, and Clinical Depression. On March 13, 2014, the Jury found Dr. Valdes “not guilty”. Valdes’ lawyer asked Ms. Peters why, on May 1 (after Dr. Valdes sent her home and said she would be fine) she did not find another hospital to go to? Since when is it the responsibility of the patient to provide their own medical care when they are in a critical condition? Ms. Peters was a healthy 45 year old woman when she walked into Dr. Carlos Valdes’ office. She did not receive the proper care that should have been provided to her, and she wants justice for what she has lost of her health and quality of life. She has been fighting for many years and will continue to fight. She is planning to appeal the case. INSURANCE From page 8A • Check whether the benefit payout amount is fixed or if costof-living adjustments are made periodically. The latter type is more expensive but offers better protection against inflation if you’re disabled for many years. Bottom line: If you became

seriously disabled it could easily wipe out your savings and put your family in financial jeopardy. Before you actually need it, investigate what disability coverage you already have and what other options are available. SBA From page 8A total number), federally backed loans to support the growth and development of these businesses is not just shrinking, it’s practically disappearing. To be blunt, that’ shameful. But we have not been idle in the face of these disturbing figures. The U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. has forged a relationship with the National Bankers Association that resulted in $5 million being deposited into Blackowned financial institutions. We also supported Maria ContrerasSweet’s confirmation as the new administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration. We believe that Administrator Contreras-Sweet, who founded ProAmerica Bank in Los Angeles, not only understands the challenges facing Black businesses. Our conversations with her lead us to believe that the shrinking numbers of loans to African American businesses troubles her, too, and that she will immediately go to work to make improvements. If a bank can’t borrow money cheaply, it can’t lend money at a profit. If a bank doesn’t make a profit, it’s either declared insolvent and goes out of business, or it’s bought by another, bigger bank. Unfortunately, it seems some banks would rather face the prospect of insolvency or takeover than lend money to a Black-owned business. Ron Busby, Sr. is president and CEO of U.S. Black Chambers, Inc.

MENTAL From page 9A 2011, is driven by a mission to educate professionals and individuals with the goal of making the recovery model of care the new mainstream. As a community foundation with an international reach, the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care funds independent research, new program development and awareness. “As a community mental health development bank, we match the passion of private philanthropy with today’s top researchers to bring recovery practices to every community,” said Dr. Nikkel. For more information about the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care, the programs and research it funds and how to help spread the message, visit www.mentalhealthexcellence.org. DIABETES From page 9A darkening and velvety patches of skin around the neck or other parts of the body, cuts and bruises that don’t heal and tingling and numbness of the hands and feet. Many of these symptoms occur because the blood vessels and nerves are damaged by the excessive amounts of glucose. 4. Feeling hungry – all the time? When your body doesn’t use glucose effectively, it needs more fuel, so you feel hungry and eat frequently. 5. Going to the bathroom a lot but always thirsty? These signs of diabetes are related. If you have diabetes, your body tries to get rid of the glucose that’s building in your blood by causing you to urinate frequently. When you go to the bathroom a lot, you lose a lot of fluid, making you dehydrated and thirsty. The good news is that diabetes is manageable. A diabetes educator can help people with prediabetes or diabetes be as healthy as possible by talking with them about the best ways to manage their condition to fit their lifestyle. INHERITANCE From page 9A Without having everything in place, there’s no guarantee that whatever wealth is there will be distributed as you wish. On top of that, the federal and state government might wind up taking more out of your estate in taxes than necessary. Beyond Leaving Money: Leaving a Legacy Financial advisers also say that it’s important to view your inheritance beyond money or assets. Ask yourself: How do I want to pass down my legacy? For example, you can write down your personal history — a legacy letter, if you will — for future generations to read. It would explain who you are, what you believe in, what you have learned and what you hope your heirs will value. An Adviser Can Be a Big Help If you’re inclined to provide some sort of inheritance for your children or grandchildren, you need to make plans for it. Working with a reputable financial adviser is one way to accomplish that. TIPS From page 9A 3. Never Give Up Your Purpose Finding and fulfilling your calling throughout your lifetime

can extend your life. In fact, studies have linked early retirement to reduced life expectancy. 4. Have Sex–Lots Of It A study of Ikarian men between 65 and 100 found that 80% of them claimed to have sex regularly, and a quarter of that self-reported group said they were doing so with “good duration” and “achievement.” 5. Take a Placebo Once Per Day Ikarians take a spoonful of honey every morning. They believe it is their “medicine” and use it for both prevention and treatment of illness and injury. They also regularly consume a homemade tea made of a special blend of herbs they believe extends their lives. 6. Walk…DAILY To get around the island, Ikarians walk. And it’s hilly where they live. Exercise isn’t something they do at the gym. It’s an enjoyable, built in part of their lifestyle. 7. Cultivate a Sense of Community Finding your tribe, alleviating loneliness, and feeling like part of a community can cut your risk of heart disease in half and extend your life up to 10 years. 8. Go to Church, Temple, or Mosque Studies show that gathering as part of a spiritual community can extend your life up to 14 years. 9. Surround Yourself with Like-minded People The more you surround yourself with people engaged in the same kind of health behavior, the more it becomes part of your culture. If, however, you surround yourself with obsessive compulsive couch potatoes, it’s easier to become one yourself. P&G From page 11A For the past decade, frivolous patent suits have been the tool of entities that produced nothing and whose sole aim was to extract a royalty payment from a small entrepreneur. The claim generally is based on an otherwise worthless patent acquired for pennies in a bankruptcy sale during the dot.com bust. But the approach has since been adopted by companies from whom we expect better, like Apple, to stymie competition. Ultimately, frivolous patent suits are a losing proposition. As I wrote in my blog on the National Black Chamber of Commerce website, Apple has been so busy in patent court that it lost its smartphone lead. Only a handful of Apple smartphone models are on the market today, while there are several dozen smartphones that are equipped with the Android operating system. And Android phones cost half as much as an iPhone. The damage these baseless lawsuits are causing small businesses has not gone unnoticed. There is bipartisan legislation in Congress that would penalize frivolous litigants whose patent claims are found to be frivolous. President Obama also has spoken out for patent reform. Meanwhile, not only does P&G stand to lose its case against Clio, it risks having its own patents invalidated as well, something that might not have happened had it not taken the litigious route. The company, its employees and Ohio consumers would all fare better if P&G were to redirect the aggressiveness it has shown in court back to the marketplace.

FARRAKHAN From page 11A and killer as 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, of Aurora, Mo. “At around 1 p.m. a gunman shot two people in the parking lot behind the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. He then drove a few blocks away to a Jewish retirement community, Village Shalom, and gunned down a woman or girl there … . Officers arrested him in an elementary school parking lot a short time later.” According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, this same man founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and was its ‘grand dragon’ in the 1980s. The Army veteran and retired truck driver later founded another White supremacist group, the White Patriot Party, the center said. Miller was the subject of a nationwide manhunt in 1987 for violating the terms of his bond while appealing a North Carolina conviction for operating a paramilitary camp. The search ended after federal agents found Miller and three other men in an Ozark mobile home, which was filled with hand grenades, automatic weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition. AP said Miller tried running for U.S. House in 2006 and the U.S. Senate in 2010, espousing a white power platform each time. Nothing in this man’s history, life or activity connects him to Minister Farrakhan, despite the New York Times assertion that he was a so-called fan. More likely, Miller was a “fan” of the

extremist Tea Party, right wing Republicans, hardcore gun enthusiasts and anti-government groups. Absent of any evidence, the White media feels it’s okay to malign Minister Farrakhan’s good name. But we will not accept their lies. The killing of innocents is America’s history and America’s legacy and we will never allow her nor Jewish groups to assign such infamy to a noble man and a noble name. Richard B.

SEGREGATED From page 11A The court did agree to bow out after some Black leaders went along with the plan. “The roster of witnesses lined up behind the school board shocked many in the black community,” ProPublica reported. “It included some of the city’s most influential black leaders, including a city councilman, a state senator, and Judge John England, Jr…Rumors spread within the community that England’s and others’ support had been part of a secret arrangement with white leaders.” A person with direct knowledge of the arrangement confirmed to me that a deal was indeed made whereby a new Black school would be constructed on the predominantly Black west side of town in exchange for supporting an end of the courtordered desegregation. However, after extracting what they wanted from Black officials, Whites reneged on the deal and no new school was erected. “Freed from court oversight, Tuscaloosa’s schools have seemed to move backwards in time,” according to the ProPublica report. “The citywide integrated high school is gone, replaced by three smaller schools. Central [the former high school that served the entire city] retains the name of the old powerhouse, but nothing more. A struggling school serving the city’s poorest part of town, it is 99 percent black.” Other cities have undergone similar experiences. A scholarly study at Stanford University found, “Over 200 medium-sized and large districts were released from desegregation court orders from 1991 to 2009. We find that racial school segregation in these districts increased gradually following release from court order…” Another reason schools are being resegregated is that segregated housing patterns have remained intact. “Schools remain segregated because neighborhoods in which they are located are segregated,” said the EPI report. “Raising achievement of low-income black children requires residential integration, from which school integration can flow.” Without dismantling segregated residential housing patterns and getting federal courts or the Justice Department to retain some jurisdiction over court-ordered desegregation plans, public schools are on a path to return to their pre-Brown status of being separate and unequal.

PRESCHOOL From page 11A Burke that found poorer New Jersey public school students were receiving “inadequate” education funding. Researchers at Rutgers University’s National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) have conducted a longitudinal analysis of the impacts of the Abbott preschool program on the cohort of children served in 2004-2005, and the fifth grade follow up shows participation has had a sustained significant effect on students’ achievement in language arts and literacy, math, and science and reduced grade retention and special education placement rates. Other cities also are finding new ways to move forward. In 2011 San Antonio, Texas Mayor Julian Castro convened a task force of education and private sector leaders to identify the best way to improve the quality of education in the city. The task force concluded the most effective solution would be a high-quality, full-day four-year-old prekindergarten targeted at low-income and at-risk children. The San Antonio program was launched after city residents voted for a one-eighth of a cent sales tax increase in November 2012 to fund it. It will serve 3,700 four-yearolds annually when fully implemented. Studies have shown children enrolled in high-quality early childhood programs are more likely to graduate from high school, hold a job, and make more money and are less likely to commit a crime than their peers who do not participate. High-quality preschool is a critical piece of the early childhood continuum — and we need to celebrate and support the cities, states, and political leaders who are successfully providing this experience for all children. Congress needs to follow their good example now by enacting the Strong Start for American’s Children Act to enable millions of the nation’s children — not just thousands or tens or hundreds of thousands — to get quality early childhood education including home visiting through kindergarten and be better prepared for school and for life. This should be a litmus test for our vote this November. If leaders don’t stand up for children, they don’t stand for anything and they don’t stand for a strong American future that requires educated children.

Yik Yak has been blocked to three middle schools and two high schools within the district. “We’re proactively trying to keep high schoolers off the app,” Droll said. “It’s being used very well at colleges. We think psychologically high schoolers aren’t ready to use our app.” In California, a 17-year-old high school student was charged with three felony counts of making a terrorist threat earlier this month after he allegedly posted on Yik Yak that a shooting would occur at two local high schools. The student thought the threat would be “funny” and untraceable, according to a news release from the Reedley Police Department. Elsewhere, in Mobile, Ala., a 16-year-old and 14-year-old from the area were reportedly charged with making terroristic threats after allegedly using Yik Yak to announce forthcoming shootings at local high schools. But Buffington said those “growing pains” are not unique to Yik Yak, and he recalled a story of the app being used by students at Vanderbilt University to raise money for a fellow classmate diagnosed with cancer. Other users might not have personally known the student, but the immediate forum and increased awareness created by the app worked wonders, he said. “It allowed him to easily connect with his whole campus,” Buffington said. “Within one day, more than 1,100 people showed up to see if they were a blood match. Awesome things like that happen all the time with our app on college campuses.” Company officials announced on Monday that it had secured $1.5 million in funding, aimed at enhancing current features and expanding its user base. Both Kroll and Buffington declined to indicate how many people are currently using Yik Yak, but some estimates are as high as 250,000. They did say, however, that it’s been used on more than 100 college campuses, primarily in the South. Buffington said he expects the app, which was originally launched a meager side project, to eventually rival social media behemoths like Facebook and Twitter because users are not anchored to any one particular profile, photo or circle of users. “The trend we saw in all other forms of social media was, you have a profile, something that weighs you down,” he said. ‘You’re expected to act a certain way. Another big thing is they’re closed networks that lack diversity and differentiating content.” Parry Aftab, an attorney specializing in Internet privacy and security law, told FoxNews.com that Yik Yak is quickly becoming “very popular” in places like Chicago, California and large swaths of the South. She said the anonymity apps like Yik Yak provides does indeed tend to make its users more daring. “If people know what they’re doing is being monitored, they tend to think twice,” Aftab told FoxNews.com. “But I have no problem with schools blocking access to anything that isn’t related to education during school hours – period. Parents can deal with it when they get home.” http://www.foxnews.com
