Around the Tri-Counties Freedom Under Attack

Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan All over the world right now freedom is under attack. The United States and nations standing with her against the forces of terror are continually on alert. They are constantly threatened with violence by those who hate their liberty. They are under assault by hidden foes intent on using all the devilish ingenuity they can muster to bind free nations everywhere and imprison them behind invisible bars of fear. Do you know that your personal freedom is under that same kind of vicious attack? Do you know the enemy is working night and day to rob you of your liberty in Christ? Do you know he is continually assaulting you with threats and lies meant to rob you of God’s blessings and put you back in bondage to the evils from which you, as a born-again child of God, have already been freed? If you don’t,

it’s time you found out. It’s time you got wise to the enemy’s schemes and launched your own “Operation Freedom” on the battlefield of life. How? By employing the one weapon that Jesus said would guarantee your freedom—the truth. What Worked for Jesus Will Work for You: “The truth?” you may ask. “That’s all I need to be liberated from the bondages of the enemy?” Yep. Jesus Himself said so. In John 8, we find Him speaking to a group of new believers. Just moments before, they had put their faith in Him. No doubt they were just like you and me when we first believed in Him—full of enthusiasm and eager to be like the Lord. They were probably looking at Him thinking, “Wow, this Man isn’t in bondage to anything! He casts out devils. He heals sickness and disease. He isn’t held captive by sin like we’ve been. I want to be His disciple! I want to be like Him!” But there was one big problem. They didn’t have the first idea of how to go about it. So at that moment, Jesus gave them the information they needed. He gave them the key that would unlock every door for them. He said: “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; Paid Advertisement

and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32) Have you ever read those verses and wondered how Jesus knew the truth would make those people free? He knew it because He had proven it in His own life. He had always lived in accordance with the truth of God’s Word. Just a few verses earlier He had explained and said, “I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things, The Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him” (verses 28-29). Most Christians don’t realize that Jesus had to live by faith and obedience to God’s Word just like we do. They make the mistake of thinking that He was able to live free from all the bondages and hindrances of the devil when He walked this earth because He was the Son of God. “Jesus couldn’t have sinned,” they say. “He couldn’t have been sick. He couldn’t have been afraid. After all, He was divine. He was God!” Yes, He was (and is) God, but He also was (and is) man. He could have sinned. Thank God He didn’t, but He could have. We know that because the Bible says He “was in all points tempted like as we are.” (Hebrews 4:15) FREEDOM, See page 12A

The Right to Pursue Happiness The Mind Matters By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC Independence Day is a celebration recognizing the freedom of the United States of America, a country of self-determination and sovereignty. Why not make this 4th of July, your own personal day of independence? Do you recognize and rejoice in your own personal liberty? Or do you feel trapped or limited? Will you allow yourself the freedom to make the right choices to create joy in your life? Or will you make up some reason why it’s not possible? Do you embrace self-rule and selfgovernment? Or are you influenced by the choices or restrictions of others? Like all beliefs, your view of personal freedom

and liberty is a perception of your subconscious mind. It is a thought that you keep practicing. You can choose to change the thought at any time. You are completely in control of your freedom as well as your limitations. You set your own boundaries. What limitations have you set on your success and happiness? Would you like to be free of self-imposed limitations? Would you like to create your own Independence Day? We live our lives based on our perceptions and beliefs, often unaware that there may be a new and different way to approach a situation. Einstein tells us “Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” Our founding fathers

created a new way of government and a new way of thinking. They imagined “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. We have benefited from their vision and their beliefs. Why not approach a situation in a different way? HAPPINESS, See page 12A

Let Freedom Ring Inez Knows

Inez Lanns

By Inez Lanns When I asked the question, “What comes to mind when you think of the Fourth of July” the responses that I received were along the lines of “BBQ,” “Food,” “Picnic,” “Family” and “Beach.” Other common things that often come to mind are fireworks, red-white-and-blue, and the American Flag. I

completely appreciate the day off, the holiday and time of celebration, but I always want to know why I am doing what I do. I like to see these days as more than just a day off. Independence Day, more commonly known as the Fourth of July is a federal holiday which celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence which took place on July 4, 1776. This is when the United States declared its independence from Great Britain. (For more info, check out http:// www.usa.gov/Topics/Independence-Day.shtml) History is not one of my stronger subjects, but I have come to truly appreciate it. Many lessons can be learned when you look back in time – at people, situations, mindsets, cul-

ture, thought processes and more. Thinking back, it amazes me how thirteen small colonies together decided they wanted to be independent. Now looking forward centuries later, the United States has grown tremendously and changed so much over time. Independence means freedom from the control, influence, support, aid, or like of others (dictionary. com). When I think of our country, there are things that automatically come to mind, such as the patriotic song with lyrics that state: “My country ‘tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrims pride, from every mountain side, let freedom ring!” (My Country ‘Tis Of RING, See page 12A

The American Heart Association’s (AHA) 2014 Ventura County Heart Walk raised more than $110,000 and drew over 500 participants to Mission Park Downtown Ventura on June 14. Participants enjoyed free health screenings, CPR demonstrations and visited health-related exhibits before hitting the 5K walk aimed at raising awareness and funds to fight heart disease and stroke, the nation’s leading killers. “I’d like to extend my personal thanks to the volunteers, sponsors, and 500 plus walkers that joined us for a tremendous day in Downtown Ventura,” said Tim Gallagher, co-owner of The 20/20 Network and chairman of the 2014 Ventura County Heart Walk. “I was glad to see so many people take ownership of their heart health, and the health of those around them.

Good Health, Wealth, Strength, Intelligence… What Is the Key to a Long Life?

“My answer would have to be intelligence. This is because intelligence is the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills. It will ultimately help you live a long successful life. Things like good health, wealth, strength would be automatically included with being intelligent. Like Salvador Dali said, “Intelligence without ambition, is a bird without wings.”

“Confidence is the key to a long life. That’s because if you ever fall on hard times you have the confidence to persevere and get through anything. Confidence makes for a long and healthy life.”

“The key to a long life is to keep moving. Use your body every day in some way. Go to the gym; go for a walk, play golf, anything that gets you up and moving.”

“The key to a long life is good nutrition, and faith in God. My grandmother lived long time. She was a woman of great faith”

“Pace yourself in every activity. Endure through adversity by being calm. Envision your future for what you want it to be.”

“I believe the key to a long life is happiness…If a person is happy I believe that a lot of other things will come along such as good health, money etc… The key to a long life is the actual desire to live your life to its maximum potential. If a person’s living a happy life, the desire to be healthy, rich, and being intelligent, will just come.”

PORTLAND, Oregon (NNPA) – Former San Francisco mayor and Democratic powerbroker Willie Brown received the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) prestigious Legacy Award last week for his distinguished public service. The award was presented to Brown at the NNPA’s annual convention here. After recounting his days as a paperboy for the Bay area’ s Sun-Reporter, Brown said, “Your role in the African American community is unparalleled.” He said today, as in the past, Black readers rely on the Black Press more than White-owned publications. He said discussions in local barber and beauty shops center on what was published in that week’s Black newspapers. “They don’t read the oth-

er papers first – they don’t believe them,” said Brown, who served 15 years as speaker of the California Assembly before serving as mayor. “You represent the source of inspiration, the sense of accuracy.” Even though he is out of office, Brown is helping avert a transit strike in San Francisco and returned there shortly after accepting the award. “Mayor Willie Brown’s name is synonymous with excellence,” NNPA Chairman Cloves Campbell, publisher of the Arizona Informant, said prior to the ceremony. “He spent three decades in the California State Assembly – half of that time as speaker – forging coalitions and working tirelessly on behalf of Blacks and other disadvantaged groups.” Born in the small East

Texas town of Mineola in 1934 during the Jim Crow era, Brown moved to California at the age of 17 to live with an uncle. He worked his way through San Francisco State University, graduating with a degree in liberal studies and earned a law degree from the University of California. Along the way, he held a variety of jobs, including working as a janitor and as a doorman to pay for his education. He was elected to the California Assembly in 1964 and rose to speaker in 1980, a position he maintained until 1995. No speaker served as long before Brown and thanks to a 1990 term limitations law, none are likely to serve as long in the future. In 1996, Brown won the first of two terms as mayor of San Francisco.

By Jon Krawczynsk Tim Duncan could have easily gone out on top, with his fifth NBA championship trophy under his arm and his health intact just a few months after his 38th birthday. There's just no way. Duncan is having too much fun with his San Antonio Spurs coaches and teammates, and he's playing too well to call it quits now. Duncan has decided to exercise the option on his contract for 2014-15 and will return next season, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. As the Spurs beat the two-time defending champion Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, Duncan was asked several times about his future, as he has been for the last five or six years. He was noncommittal, saying he would take some time after the season ended to mull his decision. But after Game 5, most of the Spurs said they expected the group to return and now Duncan has reached his decision, which was first reported by Yahoo! Sports. He will make about $10.3 million next season in the final year of a two-year agreement that was drawn up specifically to allow the Spurs the financial flexibility to surround Duncan with top-shelf talent.

work, success and stability that is unparalleled in the league. In Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, he has two trusted teammates who have been by his side for years, have sacrificed money, fame and statistics right along with him to build the Spurs organization into the envy of the NBA. And in Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, Duncan has a young, fresh-faced star on the rise to carry more of the load as the Big Three get older. ''With the front office putting the teams together that we've had and us playing smaller roles and our roles changing over the years, and us happy to accept the roles that we're in, I feel we can do it until we feel we don't want to do it anymore,'' Duncan said two weeks ago. Perhaps as important as anything, Duncan is still one of the best big men in the league. He was named first team All-NBA in 201213 as he helped the Spurs to the finals, where they lost to the Heat in a heart-breaking seven-game series. This season, Duncan averaged 15.1 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in just 29.2 minutes per game, playing in a system expertly devised by Popovich to limit the wear and tear on his body. He shot almost 57 percent in the finals and dismantled Heat star Chris Bosh, who grew up with a Duncan poster on his bedroom wall.

LeBron James will Opt Out of His Contract and Become a Free Agent

Duncan Back for Spurs in 2014-15

LeBron James likely be up to not just the Heat, but Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as well. Through his agent, James informed the Heat that he has decided to opt out of the final two years of his contract, a move that means he became a free agent on July 1. He will be able to sign with any team, including Miami, and Heat President Pat Riley said he "fully expected" James to take advantage of his early termination option. "We look forward to sitting down with LeBron and his representatives and talking about our future together," Riley said. The Heat have been preparing for this for some time. James, Wade and Bosh all got six-year contracts when they teamed up in Miami in July 2010, the last time free agency was accompanied by the sort of frenzy that will envelop the league over the next few weeks. But each of those deals came with options to leave either this summer or in 2015, in part to allow both the players and the team to have financial flexibility.

Tim Duncan ''He feels a responsibility to his teammates,'' Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said after the team won the championship. ''He enjoys them. He wants to hang around as long as he can while he's useful and while he's having an impact on the game. He takes care of his body. He works out all summer long with a variety of different things, boxing, swimming. He's very careful about what he puts in his body, so he does everything he can to maintain a level of play. ''At some point,'' Popovich added, ''that will stop.'' But not this year. When Duncan looked around at the Spurs, he saw every reason to come back and try to do just about the only thing the Spurs haven't done during his 17 years there - win back-toback titles. In Popovich he has perhaps the best coach in the game, one who has established a culture of team-

Google to Help Inspire Girls to Be Computer Programmers

Ventura, Calif. ---The Ventura College Foundation received a $4,500 grant from the Julius Gius Memorial Rotary Foundation for the college’s Women’s Safety Net program. The program, which started in 2012, provides emergency funds of up to $500 to female students who are experiencing crises that threaten to derail their education. The funds can be only used for childcare, textbooks, materials, fees, transportation and other education-related expenses. During the program’s first year, 34 women received assistance and the numbers are expected to be comparable for 2014. “The small amount of

financial support provided by the Women’s Safety Net program not only gives recipients the momentum they need to complete the semester in which the crises occur, but also to enroll again the following semester. We’ve found that 80 percent of Women’s Safety

Net recipients return to school, versus 60 percent for other students,” said Norbert Tan, executive director of the Ventura College Foundation. “The generosity of the Julius Gius Memorial Rotary Foundation enables us to help more of these female students in need so that they don’t have to compromise their educational goals.” The Women’s Safety Net program started with seed funding from the Women’s Legacy Fund in response to calls the college received from students asking for emergency assistance.

ell. “We will continue to closely monitor the teachout or sale of Corinthian’s campuses to ensure that students are able to finish their education without interruption and that employees experience minimal disruption to their lives. The Department is committed to ensuring all students receive a quality education that leads to a well-paying job and a strong future.” Corinthian is the parent company of the Everest Institute, Everest College, WyoTech and Heald brands, which together receive $1.4 billion in federal financial aid money for students annually. Under the agreement, Corinthian is required to put teach-out plans in place for all schools, including those for sale. An independent monitor approved by the Department will review matters related to ongoing operations and will have fulltime access to Corinthian’s financial and operating records. In addition, Corinthian is permitted to continue enrolling new students but must reimburse any students who enroll in

a campus found to be ineligible for federal student aid through the Department’s reviews and investigations. The Department put Corinthian on heightened financial monitoring with a 21-day waiting period for federal funds on June 12 after Corinthian failed to comply with repeated requests to address ongoing concerns over the company’s practices, including falsifying job placement data used in marketing claims to prospective students and allegations of altered grades and attendance. As part of the agreement, heightened financial monitoring remains in effect and Corinthian has agreed to turn over data that the Department has been requesting for the last five months to address inconsistencies in the company’s job placement claims for graduates, as well as grade and attendance records. Inquiries by the Department and other federal agencies into Corinthian’s practices will continue. Students can receive updated info at www.studentaid.gov/Corinthian.

State News Congresswoman Waters Applauds Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Approval of Airport Security Act Honors Men of Distinction

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) applauded the Homeland Security Committee’s approval of H.R. 4802, the Hernandez Airport Security Act, a bipartisan bill that was introduced in response to the November 1, 2013, shooting incident at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which took the life of Gerardo Hernandez, a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer who was killed in the line of duty. LAX is located in Congresswoman Waters’ congressional district. The Homeland Security Committee approved the bill by voice vote during a markup today, and it now awaits consideration on the House floor. "I applaud the Home-

Congresswoman Maxine Waters land Security Committee for approving this bill to improve security standards at our nation’s airports," said Congresswoman Waters. "The security failures at LAX, which were tragically revealed during the shooting, are simply unac-

ceptable. Congress must make certain they are never repeated." H.R. 4802 requires the Department of Homeland Security to conduct outreach to airports to verify that they have working plans to respond to security incidents, including active shooter incidents, acts of terrorism, and incidents that target passenger-screening checkpoints. Such plans may include a plan for establishing unified command, a schedule for testing of communications equipment used to receive emergency calls, a plan to communicate with travelers and other persons in the airport, and a schedule of training for airport police, fire, and medical personnel and other relevant stakeholders.

Attorney General Kamala D. Harris partners, will continue to protect California’s investors and consumers by bringing perpetrators like him to justice.” “Along with the Attor-

ney General’s Office, our office expended incredible resources in order to bring this scam artist to justice,” District Attorney Jill Ravitch said. “The scale and scope of this man’s fraud on unsuspecting investors is staggering. That so many of his victims lost their livelihoods, their homes and their retirement savings, to this man’s scheming and greed is beyond tragic. This was not just a fraud he perpetrated, but a crime against their futures and the emotional toll is incalculable. Thus, we believed his loss of liberty should be in proportion to their loss.” HARRIS, See page 12A

National News Sotomayor Defends Affirmative Action

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor rejects the notion that using alternative measures to affirmative action such as income or residency could achieve similar results in diversifying the nation's colleges and universities. She says on ABC's "This Week" that statistics show the alternatives simply don't work. Sotomayor strongly backs affirmative action and wrote the dissent in April in a 6-2 decision that

She said her alma mater could fill its freshman class with students who scored perfectly on undergraduate metrics, but it chooses not to do so because it would not create a diverse class based on standards the school considers important for success.

Tea Party Will Be Closely Watched for Voter Intimidation

By Lydia O'Connor The Justice Department said it will closely monitor Mississippi's U.S. Senate runoff election for voter intimidation after conservative groups said they would send poll watchers to the state. “The department is aware of concerns about voter intimidation and is monitoring the situation,” a Justice Department spokesman said in a statement to several media outlets. "Voters that experience problems are encouraged to call 1-800-253-3931.” The Mississippi secretary of state and the attorney general said they also would monitor polls in the Republican runoff.

Greensboro, N.C. Prominent trial attorney Willie Gary along with his legal team James Leonard Brown of Los Angeles, California and Michael Jones of Durham, North Carolina announced the filing of a multi-million dollar discrimination and breach of contract lawsuit on behalf of Michael and Ramona Woods and Black Network Television against the City of Greensboro, North Carolina. The lawsuit was filed in Guilford County. The lawsuit details the irreparable damage and harm that the City of Greensboro’s bad business dealings caused Michael and Ramona Woods and Black Network Television. The Woods are suing the City of Greensboro for discrimination and losses related to an economic development loan from the City that was approved on June 18, 2013, and then reneged on one month later by a City Council vote of 6 to 3. The lawsuit outlines the claim for damages caused by the denial of the promised funds. The loan was slated for network operations, including production of a new national comedy series titled, “Whatcha Cookin’?” “The City of Greensboro’s discriminatory acts crushed our client’s dream,” said Gary. “Michael and Ramona Woods discussed

Willie Gary with various city officials what a successful minority owned Greensboro-based television network would mean to the community in terms of job creation, skills and training and economic development. As a result, the Woods’ put full trust and confidence in the City’s promise to grant the economic development loan, only to be misled, misguided, deceived and discriminated against,” continued Gary. “It isn’t right and we will not stand for it!” “Black Network Television is a strong voice in this community, and we must address the injustice of this situation,” said Michael Woods. “Black Network Television tells stories that other stations don’t tell and focuses on people and communities that are often overlooked on other GARY, See page 12A

ate Republican facing his toughest reelection, has appealed to Democrats for votes in recent days. McDaniel enjoys support from the deeply religious and the intensely fed-up -- a constituency that analysts have said are likely to vote in the runoff. “If you did vote in the Democratic primary -- and there's files to check and all of that -- we just want to make sure that stuff is being done to make sure that people can't be voting twice in this election,” Adam Brandon, executive vice president of the conservative group FreedomWorks told Talking Points Memo. FreedomWorks and the Tea Party Patriots launched their so-called voter integrity project after Cochran began reaching out to black Democrats. Mississippi primaries are open to voters regardless of party affiliation.

Charlie Rangel Suggests Republican Opposition to Obama is Rooted in Racism By Ashley Alman Rep. Charlie Rangel (DN.Y.) spoke out against Republicans, who he said discriminate against President Barack Obama because he's African-American. MSNBC's Kasie Hunt asked Rangel, also African-American, whether he believed the president faces Republican opposition because of his race. “You know, that’s a subjective question," responded Rangel, who faces a tough reelection in the primary. "But, let me say this: Are most of the states that they represent, are they in the Confederate states that fought the Union? Were

far right opposes Obama's domestic policy just to embarrass the president -- a goal he said is rooted in their prejudice. “Who would hurt their own people -- in terms of cutting off health, job opportunity, food stamps -- to get after this president? It takes a lot of hatred to hurt yourself just to embarrass the president," Rangel said. "So, I’m trying to think with the tea party -- and basically what they have said and what their spokespeople have said -this would not be the same if the president was not of color."

threatened deadly force," Attorney Anthony Rickman told WTVT. "The problem was that under Florida's Stand Your Ground laws, as it was originally, it only allowed you to use that defense if you used actual deadly force." But gun owners interviewed by the station expressed concern that the law will allow people to pull out their guns and start shooting whenever they feel threatened. "Bullets have to go somewhere," Jason Collazo told WTVT. "It's going to endanger people whether they're firing into the air, into the ground, at a tree, they don't know if that surface is going to ricochet, so it's just not well thought out."

Florida Extends 'Stand Your Ground' to Cover Warning Shots

By Andres Jauregui Florida Governor Rick Scott signed into law Friday an extension of the state's controversial "Stand Your Ground" law, which would cover warning shots. According to Newsy, the bill was written with the case of Marissa Alexander in mind. Alexander, 33, was found guilty of aggravated assault and sentenced to 20 years in prison after firing what her defense claimed was a warning shot at the husband during a domestic dispute.

The Ten Questions You Should Owning a Home No Longer the Be Asking a Potential Employer American Dream

By Joe Konop Many job seekers focus so hard on answering interview questions well that they forget something very important: You are there to ask questions, too. Asking the right questions at an interview is important for two reasons: First, when done correctly, the questions you ask confirm your qualifications as a candidate for the position. Second, you are interviewing the employer just as much as the employer is interviewing you. This is your opportunity to find out if this is an organization where you want to work. I recommend preparing three to five questions for each interview, and actually ask three of them. (I like to have more prepared than is needed because some of my questions might be answered in the course of the interview.) Ten Questions You Might Ask In a Job Interview 1. What skills and experiences would make an ideal candidate? This is a great open-ended question that will have the interviewer put his or her cards on the table and state exactly what the employer is looking for. If the interviewer mentions something you didn’t cover yet, now is your chance. 2. What is the single largest problem facing your staff and would I be in a position to help you solve this problem? This question not only shows

that you are immediately thinking about how you can help the team, it also encourages the interviewer to envision you working at the position. 3. What have you enjoyed most about working here? This question allows the interviewer to connect with you on a more personal level, sharing his or her feelings. If the interviewer is pained to come up with an answer to your question, it’s a big red flag. 4. What constitutes success at this position and this firm or nonprofit? This question shows your interest in being successful there and the answer will show you both how to get ahead and whether it is a good fit for you. 5. Do you have any hesitations about my qualifications? I love this question because it’s gutsy. Also, you’ll show that you’re confident in your skills and abilities. 6. Do you offer continuing education and professional training? This is a great positioning question, showing that you are in-

terested in expanding your knowledge and ultimately growing with the employer. 7. Can you tell me about the team I’ll be working with? Notice how the question is phrased; it assumes you will get the job. This question also tells you about the people you will interact with on a daily basis, so listen to the answer closely. 8. What can you tell me about your new products or plans for growth? This question should be customized for your particular needs. Do your homework on the employer’s site beforehand and mention a new product or service it’s launching to demonstrate your research and interest. 9. Who previously held this position? This seemingly straightforward question will tell you whether that person was promoted, quit, fired or retired. That, in turn, will provide a clue to: whether: there’s a chance for advancement; employees are unhappy; the place is in turmoil or the employer has workers around your age. EMPLOYER, See page 12A

What to Do if You Inherit Someone’s 401(k) By Jason Alderman Talk about good news wrapped in bad: In the midst of grieving the loss of a loved one, you learn that you were named beneficiary of their 401(k) plan. Chances are you've got too much on your mind

to make any sudden decisions about what to do with the money. However, don't procrastinate too long. The IRS has ironclad rules, deadlines and penalties concerning inherited retirement accounts, which vary depend-

Jason Alderman ing on what type of account it is. This column discusses inherited 401(k) and similar employer-provided plans. Under federal law, surviving spouses automatically inherit their spouse's 401(k) plan unless someone else was named beneficiary and the surviving spouse signed a written waiver. If someone is single at death, their plan's assets go to their designated beneficiary. The IRS has basic tax and distribution rules and timetables for inherited 401(k) plans. However, the plans themselves are allowed to set more restrictive guidelines if they choose, so read the plan documents carefully. Basically: You must pay income tax on distributions (except for Roth accounts, which have already been taxed), although you may be able to spread out withdrawals and tax payments over a number of years, depending on how you structure it. Many 401(k) plans require beneficiaries to withdraw the money in either a lump sum or separate payments extending no longer than five years after the person's death; however, some will allow you to keep the money in the plan indefinitely, so check their rules. 401(K), See page 12A

By Les Christie NEW YORK -- The great American Dream is dying. Even though many Americans still desire to own a home, they are losing faith in homeownership as a key to prosperity. Nearly two-thirds of Americans, or 64%, believe they are less likely to build wealth by buying a home today than they were 20 or 30 years ago, according to a survey sponsored by non-profit MacArthur Foundation. And nearly 43% said buying a home is no longer a good long-term investment. "Americans no longer see homeownership as a secure path to building equity and wealth," said Geoff Garin president of Hart Research Associates, which conducted the survey of 1,355 adults. A majority of respondents said they believe renting is more appealing than buying -- and that renters are just as likely to be successful financially as someone who owns a home.

During the first quarter, the homeownership rate dipped to one of its lowest levels in almost two decades, according to the Census Bureau. Historically, owning a home has been considered an essential part of achieving the American Dream. However, the housing bust, with its explosion of foreclosures, changed all that. "People believed if you reached the middle class,

you didn't have to make the difficult decision of renting or buying without falling behind on credit card payments or health care bills," said Garin. And even though many experts say the housing market is recovering, many Americans aren't buying it. The survey found that 70% of Americans still believe we are in the midst of the crisis and nearly 20% think the worst is yet to come. HOME, See page 12A

NEW YORK--In many hot housing markets, bidding wars have been breaking out on a regular basis -- and some house hunters are getting beaten out time and again. But it’s not always about who has the most money. Sellers will accept lower offers if it means less hassle. Here’s how you can win over a seller and get the house you want: Pay with cash. The best way to get a seller’s attention is with cold hard cash. That is, if you can afford it. Ever since the housing meltdown, getting a mortgage has become a longer and more arduous process. Securing a loan can take weeks -- and there is always the chance it will fall through. Get your mortgage ready in advance. Don’t have a ton of cash to put on the table? Try pre-underwriting a mortgage instead. With pre-underwriting, lenders take the pre-approval process a step further by reviewing all of the income and asset documentation that they would

typically need to approve a mortgage. Be flexible (but not foolish) with contingencies. Contingencies are clauses that allow buyers to back out of deals if specified conditions are not met. A bidder will sign a contract to buy a home contingent on the appraisal coming in at or over the selling price, for example. One contingency you should think twice about before waiving is the home inspection. Should the inspector discover a major problem, such as widespread termite damage or a badly cracked foundation, it could cost far too much to fix. You want to know that before making a com-

mitment you can’t back out of, said Nicholas. Be first. See the home as soon as it comes on the market. That way, you can get your bid in early and preempt later offers. Agree to outbid everyone. Do you really want the place? You can outmatch every other bidder by creating a contract with a socalled “escalation clause.” The clause basically states that you will pay $1,000 or $10,000 more than whatever the highest bidder offers. So if the seller gets an offer for $200,000, your bid will automatically jump to $201,000 if you have an escalation clause. BIDDING, See page 12A

By Jaymi Naciri We all know that renovated kitchens and bathrooms sell homes. Slabs of granite and gleaming floors make us ooh and ahhh…but do they top the list of projects that provide the best return on investment (ROI)? Not according to Remodeling magazine. Their annual Cost vs. Value Report on remodeling provides some insight into average remodeling costs, and this year, the top of the list in terms of value-add renovations is: a new front door. Not a new kitchen. A new front door. And it's not surprising to experts who understand that flash is great, but foundation is greater. "Basic maintenance, such as the roof and exterior painting, are frequently more important than an awesome kitchen," said HGTV. "If the roof is leaking, buyers won't get beyond that," no matter "how awesome the kitchen is."

Here are five unexpected ways to add value to your home: 1. The front door "The top-ranking home improvement? A new front door, which on average adds 96.6 percent of the amount you spent to the value to your home," said MSN. But "it has to be the right front door. Keep in mind that sometimes painting the existing front door provides the same payoff." 2. The garage door Another economical renovation that pays dividends is replacing the garage door. A $1,534 investment pays back $1,283, for an 83.7 percent return on investment. 3. Adding a deck Most people wouldn't think of spending $9,539 on a deck addition at the expense of other, more necessary renovations and updates when they are getting ready to sell. But for those who want to add a great amenity that also adds value and pays them

back later on, a deck is a great way to go. The deck pays back $8,334 for an ROI of 87.4 percent. 4. New windows No one wants to hear they need to replace their windows. It's thought of as a pricey job that doesn't have much tangible benefit, at least in terms of the "wow" appeal (like a renovated bathroom would have). But spending $10,926 on windows yields a 79.3 percent ROI, which translates to $8,662. 5. Attic bedroom An addition to the house can cost huge dollars ($103,844 with a 67.5 percent return for a master bedroom, $155,365 with a 71.8 percent return on investment for a two-story addition). Which is why building up instead of out can be a great way to go if you need to add space. An attic bedroom is No. 3 on Remodeling's list of smart renovations, with a cost of $49,438 and an ROI of 84.3 percent, or $41,656.

Spotlight on Health:

By Charlotte Cowan M.D. Expect the frantic call. Your daughter’s running late for a critical meeting. Her husband’s out-of-town. The baby’s too feverish for day care. And — guess what? — the emergency sitter’s booked solid. You could say “no” to her plea for backup support. But when a child reaches out in a pinch, with arms flailing, an “I’ll take the baby” is more likely to slip out. If you have ongoing medical problems or are recovering from surgery, it’s wise to ask your physician if exposure to certain infectious illnesses poses a special risk. The response will provide solid guidelines for when it’s best not to babysit. If you’re allclear to welcome a sniffling grandchild into your home, take extra precautions to keep from catching the bug.

By Gwendolyn Harris No matter where you are in your health journey, it’s always a good time to check in and correct those sneaky habits you may have picked up along the way that are “supposed” to be good for you, but actually do more harm than help. Here’s five that will surprise you: 1. Brushing after every meal Your dentist hasn’t been lying to you all these years, we promise! Brushing after meals is a healthy habit that helps prevent plaque build up and other dental disasters, but the key is to brush at the right time. Experts recommend waiting at least 30 minutes after eating highly acidic foods before you brush. The acid from foods like citrus fruits and soft drinks can soften your tooth enamel and speed up the acid’s erosion effects. 2. Drinking bottled water You MUST drink water! Drinking at least half your body weight in ounces daily is ideal for overall wellness. However, reconsider drinking bottled water. The plastic containers may cause some bottled water to become tainted with chemicals and bacteria. Invest in an aluminum or BPA-free water bottle, or a water filter for your tap. 3. Squatting over toilet seats The idea of sitting on a public toilet seat is gross,

coddling them. Before you pick up your grandbaby, though, slip your bathrobe on over your clothes. When you put your grandchild down for a nap, take off the robe and leave it with him. Then, just before you pick him up again after he wakes, put your robe on. De-germ frequently. With almost all infectious illnesses — colds, coughs, flu, fever, sore throats, vomiting, diarrhea — washing your hands (and face) after being with your grandchild can minimize the spread of sick germs. Wash your hands after you read a story or have a meal together, after you give him a hug (no kisses!), after you tuck him in for a nap. After any contact, rinse your hands and face. And remember not to share your grandchild’s

food or drinks. Create a boat bed. A toddler grandchild will be more comfortable resting nearby as you move about the kitchen or living room. Make an ideal bed for your hacking grandchild by turning two comfortable armchairs to face each other. This special “boat” bed will safely contain the child — and limit your time spent sitting next to him on the sofa. Fill the “boat” bed with pillows and your grandchild’s favorite stuffed animals and toys. Give her a special tissue box.

(NewsUSA) - Ray Territ, 75, was playing golf when his feet started feeling abnormally heavy. After his legs started to hurt, Territ made an appointment with his Kaiser Permanente family physician, Lisa Tran, M.D., in Southern California. When Dr. Tran reviewed Territ’s medical history in Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect, one of the world’s largest private electronic health records, she quickly identified that he was missing a screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Dr. Tran advised Territ to get tested, and he agreed. His decision saved his life. The ultrasound showed that Territ had an abdominal aortic aneurysm twice the size of those that normally require surgery. The technician immediately sent the results to Kaiser Permanente heart surgeon Majid Tayyarah, M.D. That same day, Dr. Tayyarah stood in front of Territ and explained the urgent need for surgery, and the deadly consequence, if the aneu-

And we went into the operation room, had the operation, no problems.” Territ is fully recovered and back on the golf course. “Dr. Tran and Dr. Tayyarah -- they’re my heroes.” What Is Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm? An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a balloon-like bulge in the aorta, which -- if ruptured -- can cause serious bleeding that can quickly lead to death. Most aortic aneurysms don’t

cause symptoms. Sometimes a doctor finds them during exams or tests done for other reasons. People who have symptoms notice pain in the abdomen, chest, or back. Who Should Be Screened? Those at highest risk are men over the age 65 who smoked tobacco and men or women over 60 who have a family history of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Both Medicare Part B and Medicare Advantage cover a one-time abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, if you are at risk and get a referral from your doctor. The Role of Electronic Health Records Kaiser Permanente’s HealthConnect now features a number of proactive screening reminders, including one for abdominal aortic aneurysm, which was being added at the time Dr. Tran diagnosed Territ’s condition. Today, electronic alerts automatically appear at each doctor’s appointment for members who fit the criteria. A Kaiser Permanente study, published in the Journal of Vascular ANEURYSM, See page 12A

Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and heart disease top the list for the most new drugs in development to treat the common chronic diseases of older Americans, according to a new drug- industry report. The report, by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), an industry trade association, says 435 medicines that primarily target seniors are currently either in clinical trials or under review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Diabetes drugs are the largest chunk, at 110 potential new medications, followed by 67 for Al-

zheimer’s, 62 for arthritis and 61 for heart disease. The numbers are a drop from last year, when 142 diabetes drugs were in development, arthritis had 92 and Alzheimer’s had 82. This year’s report notes that Americans are living longer, meaning the number of those who are 65 or older and dealing with serious chronic conditions is also growing. For the drug industry, that means developing medications to treat the nearly 50 million Medicare beneficiaries suffering from conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis and diabetes. The report warns, how-

ever, that the development of new medicines “is a long and risky road.” Even medicines that reach clinical trials have only a 16 percent chance of being approved. Of the 110 diabetes drugs currently under development, nine have submitted an application for FDA approval, while 77 are in the early stages (phases one and two) of clinical trials — in other words, several years away from approval. Among the 67 Alzheimer’s drugs being tested, only one has been submitted to the FDA, while 56 are still in phase one or two clinical trials.

Surprise! Five Healthy Habits That Really Aren’t

but according to one doctor, squatting may increase women’s risk of urinary tract infections. “Squatting causes the pelvic muscles to contract and tighten around the urethra,” says Elizabeth Kavaler, MD, urologist. This prevents the bladder from emptying all the way, setting up a perfect environment for UTIs. Instead of squatting, use the paper toilet liners most restrooms provide (or line with tissue) and have a seat. 4. Sitting up straight Good posture is good for your health, but sitting up straight can also be bad for your back. Researchers found that sitting in a reclined position is best because it takes stress off of the spinal disks in the low back. Too much sitting – “sitting disease” – is

also common and has been linked to serious health issues like heart disease. If you sit for long periods of time, take breaks to stand and walk around. 5. Catching up on sleep Most of us are living for Friday just so we can rest and sleep on the weekends, but trying to catch up on sleep is like trying to catch the wind: you can’t! “It’s a myth that if we miss sleep over the course of the workweek we need to catch up on an hour-for-hour basis on the weekend,” says Gregory S. Carter, MD of UT Southwestern Medical Center.” The best thing you can do is get yourself in the habit of going to sleep earlier during the week and getting at least seven to nine restful hours of sleep a night.

Raising Awareness About a Silent Epidemic son. The most common way for it to be transmitted is through the sharing of needles or syringes during injection drug use. Lesscommon ways of getting HCV include accidental needle pricks in health-care settings, sexual contact and mother-to-child transmission during childbirth. For some people, hepatitis C is an acute infection that can clear up on its own.

By Tamara E. Holmes While much progress has been made in increasing awareness about the realities of HIV, hepatitis C is a silent epidemic that is wreaking havoc on the Black community. Hepatitis is a family of viral infections that affect the liver. One of those infections, hepatitis C, is caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV). “African Americans have a higher rate of chronic HCV infection than other racial and ethnic groups, and the African American mortality rate related to the hepatitis C virus is almost double the rate for nonHispanic White people,” says C. Virginia Fields, president and CEO of the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS (NBLCA). In addition, hepatitis C, also called hep C, is more prevalent among people born between the years 1945 and 1965. Within the Black community, men in their 50s bear the brunt of the disease, with 1 in 7 living with chronic HCV. Understanding the Disease Hepatitis C is transmitted when blood from an infected person enters the body of an uninfected per-

However, for between 75 and 85 percent of people who become infected with hep C, it becomes a chronic condition that can last a lifetime, causing such problems as cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer. In fact, “Black people ages 50 to 64 have the highest mortality rate—18.6 percent—related to liver cancer,” Fields points out. HEPATITIS C, See page 12A

Amazon Phone’s Hidden Feature:

It Makes Phone Calls

By Dino Grandoni At the unveiling of Amazon’s new smartphone, founder and CEO Jeff Bezos touted the many innovations he claimed the phone delivers: Its ability to display images with 3D depth. Its ability to identify any object at which you point the camera. Its ability to scroll through text with just a tilt of the phone. But there’s one Fire Phone feature that Bezos didn’t mention even once during Amazon’s 1-hourand-30-minute presentation: Amazon’s phone has the ability to make phone calls. The omission underscores the extent to which the smartphone has become more of a go-to device for managing our lives and less of a, you know, phone. A Pew Research survey last year found that making phone calls is a decreasingly important activity for cell-phone owners. The survey found that a majority of U.S. adults who own cell phones use their phones to send and receive text messages, access the Internet and read and respond to email. (Pew didn’t publish the percentage of cell owners who make phone calls.) So irrelevant is the

(NewsUSA) - Google has been making news in recent months for its work in a ground-breaking area: driverless automobile technology. A prototype of Google's new self-driving car -- a two-passenger electric vehicle with buttons to turn the vehicle on and off, but no steering wheel, accel-

erator pedal or brake pedal -- was unveiled in May. Without a driver at the wheel, the car is instead guided by a light detection and ranging (LIDAR) rotating sensor on the vehicle's roof that scan the vehicle's surroundings to determine its driving route as well as to identify such

obstacles as pedestrians, bicyclists and other cars. While Google is widely considered a front-runner in the development of such advanced automation technology, the major automakers are also getting into the race. Albeit at a more conservative pace, they're introducing automated features that perform specific tasks -- such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and collisionavoidance braking -- to their new car models. According to a recent report by Lux Research, cars with these so-called "Level 2" features are expected to account for 92 percent of a worldwide $87 billion-peryear autonomous car market by 2030. Only 8 percent of the market will go to "Level 3" cars, which would be primarily driven autonomously, but would allow drivers to regain control of the vehicle in an emergency. In addition, the research firm doesn't expect any fully automated vehicles on the road by 2030. "We consider that ultimate level, Level 4, to be full autonomy, where you just get in and you don't interact with the car at all," explained Cosmin Laslau, lead analyst at Lux Research. "And we don't think that's coming by 2030. The biggest opportunity that we see will be actually from the Level 2 features, which are the more conventional advances that we're already starting to see come onto the market from higher-end developers." Hermann Winner, director and professor of automotive engineering at Germany's Technische Universit?t Darmstadt, agreed. "We will start with a partially automated car, then a highly automated one," he said, adding CAR, See page 12A

How Police are Scanning All of Twitter to Detect Terrorist Threats

When Boston officials decided to monitor Twitter during this year’s marathon, they didn’t scan the site’s 500 million daily posts for signs of trouble. Dataminr did that for them. The company’s software sorts through millions of tweets for clues about major events or emerging threats, flagging mentions of everything from fires to suspicious packages and sending real-time alerts to customers. Dataminr has been quietly working with public safety officials in Boston and three other cities with the aim of detecting potential criminal or terrorist activity bubbling up on Twitter before it happens. Boston’s use of Dataminr was part of the city’s broader effort to tighten security at the 2014 marathon after last year’s bombings. At a time when eyewitnesses may tweet about an emergency before -- or

even instead of -- calling 911, Dataminr’s co-founder Ted Bailey said his company offers a valuable tool to first responders. “How can you afford to have these blind spots in your area?” Bailey said in an interview Monday at the company’s New York City office, where employees with Ph.D.’s in mathematics and linguistics sat in front of computers and tested Dataminr’s complex algorithm.

Dataminr is one of several companies marketing such products to police departments. A company called BrightPlanet is selling a tool called Blue Jay that allows law enforcement officers to listen to what gang members say on Twitter and track their movements. The FBI is also building its own application to monitor social media posts for words like “bomb,” “suspicious package” and “white powder.”

By Peter Svensson NEW YORK — On the heels of success with “The Lego Movie,” the Danish toy company is giving kids a chance to put their own blocks on the screen, with a new product line that copies their creations into phone and tablet games. The Lego Fusion line will launch in August. Each $35 box will contain some 200 bricks and a special plate to build on. Creations on the plate can be photographed with Apple or Android phones or tablets and imported into free, downloadable games. There are several Legothemed games already, but this is the first time it’s blending real and virtual this way. Many toy companies are going down that route, trying to capture some of the attention — and money — that’s being diverted from physical products to iPhone and Android games. In “Lego Fusion Town Master,” kids build house facades on the plates and

import them into a game that simulates a small town, inhabited by Lego figures. In “Battle Towers,” they build sections of a medieval-style tower and defend it against flying monsters. In “Create & Race,” they build cars and race them on a virtual track. Different designs yield cars that differ in speed, durability and handling. In September, Lego is following up with “Resort Designer,” in the style of its girl-oriented “Friends” line. The games are designed to force the kids to return

to the physical blocks and rebuild their structures, said Ditte Bruun Pedersen, senior design manager at Lego’s Future Lab. But the lab’s research also shows that kids want to bring their physical creations to life, she said. “Kids want to be this mini-figure and they want to be in this world they create,” Pedersen said. The Fusion boxes are launching in the U.S. only and will be exclusive to Toys R Us and Lego’s own stores, Lego said.

Lock makes it nearly impossible to turn off Find My iPhone, rendering their thievery useless. Unfortunately, setting up the features is a little confusing, so we’ve decided to create a step-by-step guide to walk you through it. 1. Get an iCloud account. You likely already set up iCloud immediately upon purchasing your iPhone, but

if you didn’t, here’s how: A. Go to Settings, then iCloud. B. Tap iCloud C. Type in your Apple ID and create a password. If you’re not sure what your Apple ID is, Apple can help you find or create one. 2. Activate “Find My iPhone.” A. Go to Settings. B. Tap iCloud. C. Turn on Find My iPhone. Scroll down and you’ll find it. Just swipe the little bar to the right so it turns green, and Find My iPhone is on. D. Tap “OK.” Now you’ll be able to find your iPhone much more easily if it gets lost or stolen. Fortunately iPhone theft is going down, thanks, in part, to Apple implementing Activation Lock around six months ago. You should do your part too.

How to Really, Really Annoy iPhone Thieves in 2 Steps

By Alexis Kleinman iPhone thefts are a huge problem, especially in New York City, where more than 40 percent of thefts involve cell phones. But there are steps you can take to protect your iPhone, or at least really annoy thieves after they steal it. Yes, it’s time for you to set up “Find My iPhone” and its new feature, “Activation Lock.” If someone steals your iPhone, and you have Find My iPhone on, the thief will try to turn it off so you can’t find your phone.

The Central Park Jogger Case Settlement

Republicans Favor U.S. Going Back into Iraq

Lee A. Daniels

Bill Fletcher, Jr.

How much is a person’s innocence worth? That’s the most fundamental question framing the news that, after years of bitter dispute, a settlement has been reached in the lawsuit stemming from the notorious Central Park Jogger case that a quarter-century ago inflamed racial tensions in New York City and across the country, sent five Black and Latino youth to prison for years – and since then has become one of the best-known examples of the injustice that’s corroded much of America’s criminal justice system. The five men, who, though 14 to 16 years old at the time, were tried as adults for beating and raping the young White woman, will now receive about a million dollars for each year they served in prison. Four of the men—Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, and Raymond Santana, Jr. – spent about seven years in prison. One, Kharey Wise, served about 13 years. More than a decade after their trial, DNA and other evidence uncovered by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office proved that none of the five youths had beaten and raped the jogger. The evidence tied the attack to one man, Matias

Reyes, who by then was in prison for murdering a woman shortly after he had attacked the jogger, then confessed to the crime. The convictions of the five were vacated in 2002, but for a decade the administration of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg refused to settle their lawsuit that charged that police and prosecutors had deliberately suppressed the DNA and other evidence. City officials, however, then maintained that the police and prosecutors had not committed any wrongdoing and therefore could not be held liable. By contrast, the administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio, who took office in January, moved quickly to settle the case, which yet remains one of the most notorious examples of the egregious mistakes and willful misconduct by police, prosecutors and judges that have sentenced men and women of all backgrounds to long terms in prison – and some to death row. Thanks to technological advances in the use of DNA evidence and action taken by some state legislatures and some police and prosecutors, too, the list of the exonerated has grown significantly in the decade since the Central Park Jog-

ger Five were cleared. According to data from The Innocence Project, a national litigation and public policy organization, there have now been 316 post-conviction DNA exonerations in the country. That includes 18 people who were sentenced to death before DNA proved their innocence. The average sentence those convicted served before their DNA-based exoneration was nearly 14 years, 70 percent of those exonerated were people of color, and in 50 percent of the cases, the true criminal was identified by the DNA testing. Undoubtedly, the most stunning example of the criminal justice system’s wrongful conviction dynamic is now unfolding in Brooklyn, N.Y. Growing doubts about numerous murders convictions obtained there in the 1980s and 1990s in recent years led the New York City borough’s long-time prosecutor, Charles J. Hynes, to establish an special unit to investigate claims of innocence. The result: in recent months six men who had CASE, See page 12A

U.S.-African Leaders Summit Long Overdue Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. President Barack Obama will once again make national and international history when the White House hosts the first United States – African Leaders Summit on August 5-6. In the 238-year history of the United States, no U.S. president has ever invited the presidents of each African nations to convene in Washington, D.C. Announcing the purpose of the summit, the White House stated, “President Obama looks forward to welcoming leaders from across the African continent to the Nation’s Capital to further strengthen ties with one of the world’s most dynamic and fastest-growing regions. The Summit will build on the progress made since the President’s trip to Africa last summer, advance the Administration’s focus on trade and investment in Africa, and highlight America’s commitment to Africa’s security, its democratic development, and its people.” According to the U.S. State Department, the upcoming U.S. – African Leaders Summit will bring the largest number of heads of state ever to be assembled in Washington, D.C. U.S. News & World Report cautioned about what it considered to be “Obama’s

High-Risk Africa Summit,” noting, “The president is breaking tradition during a meeting with more than 50 African leaders.” Gird yourself for strident attacks on President Obama because of this bold initiative on Africa. Instead of applauding this move to improve relations with the continent that is home to seven of the 10 fastestgrowing economies in the world – Ethiopia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Congo, Ghana, Zambia and Nigeria. Without a doubt, the summit is a positive step forward and a long overdue break with the past traditions and “benign neglect” policies of the U.S. toward Africa. Interestingly, both China and Japan have already sponsored and financed successful African leaders summits. Led by China, Asia is the biggest investor in Africa. What do Asians see or know about Africa that Americans appear to be so slow to grasp? In fact China and Japan have made separate investment commitments to Africa that now total more than $60 billion. In addition to bustling economies, Africa not only has the world’s largest supply of natural and minerals resources. Beyond the vast reservoirs and deposits of

oil, gold, diamonds, platinum, uranium, copper, cobalt, iron ore, tantalum, tin and tungsten, the greatest natural resource throughout Africa is its people. Even after centuries of oppression, slavery, colonialism, and neocolonialism, and other forms of massive economic exploitation, African people are resilient and focused on improving their overall quality of life. There is an axiom that still holds true for Africa: As the cradle of civilization emerged from the heart of Africa, so shall the future rise of all of humanity. The reality is President Obama is now attempting to lead the U.S. in a strategic effort to “catch up” with other global investors who are helping shape the future of Africa. The return on these investments will be tremendous. We need to find additional ways and means to ensure that unprecedented networking and new business development opportunities be also pursued by African American leaders and organizations during these summit meetings. SUMMIT, See page 12A

In the context of the current crisis in Iraq, I have been astounded by Republican suggesting that Obama is not taking a tough enough stand; that that U.S. withdrew troops prematurely; and that the U.S. needs to exert its power. Let’s start with a very fundamental point: the current situation in Iraq is the direct outgrowth of the U.S. invasion in 2003. In carrying out that illegal invasion, the U.S. set in motion the events that we are now seeing playing out. Our country encouraged the preexisting tensions that unfolded as a Sunni/Shiite split. The United States demobilized the Iraqi Army in such a chaotic manner that there was no institutional spine in the country. The U.S. sat back while Sunnis were excluded from the realm of power. We in the U.S. have to begin with a sense of our direct culpability in this crisis. This is not about

whether Obama pulled the troops out too soon. The troops should never have been there in the first place. Now what we are witnessing is a situation where there are multiple Sunni forces at war with a Shiite-dominated government that seems to have little interest in inclusion. These forces, fighting on the ground, also have regional sponsors, with the two most important being Iran and Saudi Arabia. Iran and Saudi Arabia are deeply suspicious of one another and see the other as a threat to their own regional ambitions. Given that, the crisis in Iraq will not be resolved without the engagement of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and, of course, the forces on the ground in Iraq, including Sunni, Shiite, Kurd and secular social movements (the latter having been largely ignored in the media). Contemplating air strikes or other military involvement in Iraq is nothing more than a fool’s course.

Page 11A

Among other things, who would be bombed? The situation on the ground is so complicated that military intervention could exacerbate the situation rather than stabilize it. If the U.S. wishes to help, it should first do no harm. It should then work with regional powers (plus Russia) in constructing a comprehensive settlement. Unilateral action by the U.S,, including but not limited to military involvement, will be the proverbial kerosene thrown on the fire.

Beyond the Rhetoric:

Art of the Corporate Shakedown

Harry C. Alford

There is probably no poverty pimp that is lower than a leech. This type of hustler wants to suck up as much money as he/she can within a very short period. These guys are found all over the nation and many try to camouflage themselves by “representing” a nonprofit. As they demand money from reputable corporations who provide products and services to the public and create jobs by the thousands. They have no shame whatsoever. It is like a soft robbery. When they succeed there is damage to sincere groups trying to protect the under-served or under-represented. Money given to them is the money that was formerly earmarked for the community. That is where the damage is done. It happens so much in the activist arena that when true accomplishments are achieved the leeches will claim, “He must have been paid off. How much did he get?” When we protested a United Air Lines billion dollar project in Indianapolis, no one believed we could make them do the right thing. When it was announced that victory was ours, a rumor went around claiming that I took a $300,000 payoff. I was enraged by this, being that Kay and I were having financial pains at the time and we would not have lowered ourselves even if it were offered to us. They didn’t want to talk about the $200 million we brought to the local Black businesses. They just called it a payoff. Another good example is when the National Black

Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) filed a discrimination suit against U.S. West (now Quest). This went on for a couple of years and it was contentious. The Black businesses of Denver were terrified that we would come from D.C. and sue their biggest employer. It was like “You going to get us in trouble.” I would reply, “You Negroes just sit back and watch how Black folks fight those who discriminate against our businesses.” They actually thought we were going to be in trouble for challenging a Fortune 100 company. Every time I went to Denver, I would be given certain evidence to support our suit by anonymous citizens, mostly US West employees. During depositions, I would let the US West lawyers know that I had such information. The strategy worked and we settled. The last settlement discussion with the CEO was done on their corporate jet that took us to Washington Dulles Airport. You would think the people of Denver would marvel at the victory for our five members who were made whole by the settlement money. No, they claimed that I sold them out during the flight. That’s silly. Our plaintiffs were happy with the settlement money they received and nothing bad happened on that plane – the NBCC did not receive a nickel. Nothing humiliates a leech more than someone playing the game correctly with honor and succeeding. Mergers by major corporations draw leeches

like no other transaction. AT&T was merging with Pacific Bell and officials of a California nonprofit decided they would file a lawsuit to contest the merger. This was their modus operandi whenever there was a merger in California. They would file suit, put up a major fit, and embarrass the companies in the public. Then they would offer an easy settlement. The settlement would be a couple of easy steps and no money except reimbursement for their legal fees. The law firm would be a one man shop. That man would actually be the real principal of the nonprofit and his legal fees would be $600 per hour. 500 hours of legal fees would amount to $300,000 in his pocket and a kick back to the nonprofit. I saw this guy and his nonprofit do this three times in two years. High level leeches can receive more than a million dollars in a merger. They threaten to hold up the process, costing market share and value for the companies trying to merge. It can be intimidating to stock holders, board of directors and executives. One day I hope companies would stop submitting to this and hold their ground. So now, Comcast and Time Warner have proposed a merger. This is major in terms of market share, annual sales and a number one position in the telecommunications industry. Its CORPORATE, See page 12A

RIGHTS From page 1A of voter discrimination had to pre-clear any changes to voting rules with the Department of Justice or a federal court. After the ruling, Republican lawmakers in Texas, North Carolina and other states rushed to pass restrictive voter ID laws that often block poor and Black voters from the ballot box. Attorney General Eric Holder, Department of Justice, and civil rights groups countered by filing lawsuits in a number of states across the country. During a press conference highlighting the one-year anniversary of the Shelby County v. Holder case, Henderson said, “Voting is the language of American democracy: if you don’t vote, you don’t count.” Henderson added: “Discrimination at the ballot box is unfortunately still alive and well across America.” A study by the Leadership Conference on recent voting rights violations said, “Between 2000 and June 2013, there were 148 Section 5 objections or other Voting Rights Act violations recorded across 29 states. Texas had the most with 30.” The report also said that the abuses ranged “from an instance in Kilmi­chael, Mississippi, when the town cancelled a general election for the office of mayor and board of alderman after Blacks had come a majority of the registered voters, to the closure of polling places in heavily minority areas.” Because local elections operate outside of the national media spotlight, voting rights transgressions often receive little attention, until it’s too late. Then voters and non-profit advocacy groups with limited resources are forced to file costly lawsuits and wait. Last summer’s Supreme Court ruling that invalidated the preclearance coverage formula of the VRA made it more difficult for those groups to seek redress. Testifying before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary on the one-year anniversary of the Shelby County v. Holder decision, Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. said that many discriminatory changes have been enacted, but have gone undetected or unchallenged. “Some have said that other provisions of the Voting Rights Act are sufficient to deal with discrimination in voting. This is also not true. Litigation is costly, time-consuming, and can only address voting discrimination after it has gone into effect and after the democratic process has been besmirched with the taint of discrimination,” said Ifill. “Moreover, even the assortment of civil rights law organizations that, like my own, are committed to representing voters in such cases, could not keep up with litigating the litany of changes that have been unleashed in just the first year after the Shelby County decision.” In January, a bipartisan group of Washington lawmakers accepted the Supreme Court’s challenge to update the VRA, by introducing the Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2014. While the proposed VRAA covers states with five violations in 15 years and jurisdictions that show continuous low minority turnout and enhances Department of Justice’s power to monitor elections, it only requires Georgia, Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi to “pre-clear” changes to voting laws. Voters’ rights advocates have said that North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Florida should also be covered. The bill also goes soft on restrictive voter ID laws, installing a special rule that separates voter ID laws from other discriminatory practices. Henderson said that it’s time for Congress to pass modern, 21st century protections found in the VRAA to combat documented discrimination and protect the fundamental right to vote for all. Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, called on Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to “do the right thing” and call for a vote on the Voting Rights Amendment Act. Although the bill isn’t perfect, most voters’ rights advocates and civil rights groups agree that headed into the 2014 midterm elections, the VRAA is better than nothing. According to a report by the Brennan Center for Justice, “In 2013 and 2014, at least 10 of the 15 states that had been covered in whole or in part by Section 5 introduced new restrictive legislation that would make it harder for minority voters to cast a ballot. These have passed in two

states: Virginia (stricter photo ID requirement and increased restrictions on third-party voter registration) and North Carolina,” stated the report. “ Further, seven other formerly covered states also passed restrictive legislation in 2011 and 2012, prior to the Shelby County decision.” Lorraine Miller, the interim president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), said that her group plans to engage members of Congress and call for House hearings on the VRAA, enlist registered voters to help first-time and elderly voters securing all required documents and identification necessary to vote, work with faith leaders to educate their congregations about voting, and deploy 2.5 million digital activists to support unfettered access to the polls. “We must act with renewed urgency in advancing the VRAA through the congressional process,” said Lorraine Miller, the interim president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. “The looming risk of voter disenfranchisement threatens our democracy.” Miller added: “Failure to advance this legislation gives a free pass to voter discrimination.” FREEDOM From page 2A Even though Jesus is God, when He came to earth He laid down the rights, privileges and power that belonged to Him as God and lived as a man. As Philippians 2:7 AMP says, He “stripped Himself of all privileges and rightful dignity. In that He became like men and was born a human being.” What made and kept Jesus free, what held Him up and made Him strong was not His divine willpower. It wasn’t even the fact that Almighty God was His Father. What made Him free was the fact that He walked on the Word of God! He said what His Father said. He did what His Father told Him to do. He lived on the Father’s Word continually, night and day, and that Word kept Him free. So when those new believers needed to know how they could be His disciples, since a disciple is “one who is like his teacher,” Jesus told them to do the same thing He had been doing. He said, “Keep on listening to me like I listen to my Father. I’ll keep on giving you His words, and then you’ll know the truth and that truth will make you just as free as I am!” In other words, you can have Heavenly Freedom Here on Earth! Lonnie G.

Access the power of your subconscious mind to imagine a future of self-mastery and a new way of being. You deserve to pursue happiness. It’s an inalienable right. Happy Independence Day! RING From page 2A Thee (America) by Samuel Francis Smith). We used to sing songs like these regularly during elementary school which displayed love for our country through song. Those lyrics bring about a sense of pride and gratitude for the freedom we are fortunate enough to have in our country. I also think of the end of the Pledge of Allegiance, which states: “with liberty and justice for all.” Liberty means freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control; freedom from external or foreign rule; independence (dictionary.com). We live in a place where many people gave their lives and fought for us to be able to enjoy the freedom and liberation we are born with here in the United States. Although we live in a free country many people walk around imprisoned and in bondage. Some are imprisoned by fear – the fear to step out on their real passion and dreams, fear of failure, fear of not being accepted. Many are enslaved and controlled by other people in so many different ways. Here in our free country people are in bondage to money, power, media, substance and more. The question is: are you free? Or are you living in a free country but imprisoned? Do you feel liberated and at ease? There were others that came before us who fought for our freedom. They paid the price for liberty, and it belongs to each one of us. It is our birth right as U.S. Citizens. Don’t allow

yourself to be imprisoned and enslaved to things that you need not be. Don’t allow people or circumstances to control you – that is not true freedom. Some are not aware that freedom is available to them because they have been trapped all of their lives. The song says, “From every mountain side, let freedom ring!” In other words, from the north to the south and the east to the west, on every side of the hills freedom has been declared. It belongs to all of us. Walk in liberty. This freedom and independence is the reason why we have the fireworks, the BBQs, the feasts and festivities. It is a time for celebration! Do not take freedom for granted. Don’t just celebrate your freedom, but also exercise it. Inez Lanns was born and raised in Ventura County.

HEART From page 2A Teams (collectively), Amgen, Ventura County Medical Center/Santa Paula Hospital and Guitar Center. The Ventura Heart Walk is an annual event that brings the community together to help achieve the AHA’s 2020 impact goal of improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent. Participants included many heart disease and stroke survivors as well as families who lost loved ones to the nation’s leading causes of death. For information about next year’s Heart Walk, visit www. VenturaHeartWalk.org or call (805) 445-7050. JORDAN From page 3A $600-625 million so most of Jordan’s net worth comes from owning the team. With the pending sell of the Clippers, helped boost the net worth of every franchise in the NBA. Jordan’s team was once known as the Bobcats, but once New Orleans dropped the Hornets for the name Pelicans, Jordan acted quickly to change the name back to what it once was many years ago. So bye, bye Bobcats and hello Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets rank 29th in the NBA ahead of only the Milwaukee Bucks, who were sold in May for a then-record $550 million. Jordan said his goal is to ‘attract superstars’ to Charlotte. BROWN From page 3A Brown was one of the most powerful speakers in the history of California, nicknaming himself the “Ayatollah of the Assembly.” But even the “Ayatolla” was not invincible. While a state lawmaker, he was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a heredity disease characterized by a gradual loss of peripheral vision, sometimes resulting in blindness. He has not let the disease limit his activities, working as a radio host and making several cameo movie appearances. His reputation extended far beyond California. He was as wellknown for his flamboyant style of dress as his political clout. Some days he would change clothes three or four times. Many of his tailored suits were made in Europe and he capped off his fastidious dress with hats. He was a target of several FBI stings, none of them successful. GRANT From page 5A victims of domestic violence, the Ventura College Foundation program helps all women in crisis, including domestic violence victims and those who are homeless or combat veterans. To qualify, a recipient must be a female Ventura College student who is experiencing an emergency that would cause her to drop out of school if she didn’t have financial assistance. Applications are available online at the foundation’s website at www.venturacollege.edu/ foundation. HARRIS From page 6A Baccala was arrested in June of 2012 and charged with grand theft, securities fraud and elder abuse. On March 12 of this year, Baccala entered no contest pleas to 140 counts and admitted to excessive taking and white collar enhancements. The case was jointly prosecuted by both the Attorney General’s Financial Fraud and Special Prosecutions Section and the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office. Consumers should exercise

WILLIAMS From page 6A Dutch-Indonesian ancestry he was able to settle in Holland where he married and had three daughters. In 1957, René and his family immigrated to the U.S. and later settled in Ojai, California. He became an accountant for the Thatcher School and worked there for over twenty years before retiring. Diets is also an accomplished artist and painter. Much of his retirement is spent painting the scenes that surround him in the Ojai Valley. RANGEL From page 7A Despite Rangel’s support for the president, Obama has chosen not to endorse anyone in the race to represent New York’s 13th Congressional District, where incumbent Rangel faces a challenge from state Sen. Adriano Espaillat (D). Rangel defeated Espaillat in 2012 by fewer than 1,000 votes. “Like 2010 and 2012, the president will not be endorsing in this race,” Michael Czin, a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, said in a statement. “However, he believes that Mr. Rangel has been and continues to be an advocate for quality, affordable health care, fair wages and opportunity for all his constituents.” Rangel has received endorsements from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and former President Bill Clinton.

What is the next step in the process? This is the essential last question and one you should definitely ask. It shows that you’re interested in moving along in the process and invites the interviewer to tell you how many people are in the running for the position. With luck, the answer you’ll hear will be: There is no next step, you’re hired! 401(K) From page 8A Note that distributions will be added to your taxable income for the year, which can greatly increase your tax bite. Thus, many people prefer to spread the payments out as long as possible. Plus, the longer funds remain in the account, the longer they accrue earnings, tax-free. If the original account holder had already reached the mandatory withdrawal age of 70 ½, you may be allowed to continue withdrawing funds according to his or her withdrawal schedule. Your minimum annual withdrawal amount is based on your own life expectancy, according to IRS tables (see Appendix C in IRS Publication 590 at www.irs. gov). Alternatively, you could speed up the payment schedule or take a lump sum. You may also be able to transfer your balance into an “inherited IRA,” which must be named and maintained separately from your other IRAs. With an inherited IRA, you must withdraw a certain amount each year, based on your life expectancy. Distributions must begin the year following the donor’s death, regardless of whether or not you’re retired. Make sure the 401(k) trustee transfers funds directly to the inherited IRA’s trustee so you never touch the money; otherwise the transfer may be voided and you’ll have to pay taxes on the entire sum that year. Surviving spouses have an additional option: Instead of opening an inherited IRA, they’re also allowed to do a “spousal rollover,” which means rolling over the balance into an existing or new IRA in their own name. The key advantage of a

spousal rollover is that you don’t have to begin taking mandatory withdrawals until you reach 70 ½, unlike inherited IRAs where you must begin withdrawals the year after the donor’s death. One last point: Always withdraw at least the required minimum distribution (RMD) amount each year, if one is specified. If not, you’ll pay a penalty equal to 50 percent of the difference between the RMD and what you actually withdrew. Bottom line: Talk to a financial or legal expert before taking any action on your inheritance. HOME From page 8A That’s because many Americans were impacted directly by the economy and the housing bust and are still struggling to get by. More than half of those surveyed said they had to take on an additional job or work extra hours, stop saving for retirement, accumulate credit card debt or cut back on health care in order to afford their housing payments at least once over the past three years. BIDDING From page 8A The problem is that the final home price may be a lot higher than the appraised value of the home. That could jeopardize the mortgage or force you to come up with a lot of cash to make up for the shortfall. One way to prevent that from happening is to place a cap on the bid, offering to pay no more than 10% or 20% above the original asking price. HEPATITIS C From page 9A To determine whether you have HCV, testing is paramount. A blood test determines whether there are HCV antibodies in the bloodstream. If there are, a follow-up test confirms the diagnosis and determines how much HCV is in the body. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that baby boomers—anyone born between 1945 and 1965—get tested. Others at high risk for HCV include current and former injection drug users, recipients of a blood transfusion or an organ transplant before July 1992, anyone with abnormal liver tests and people infected with HIV. HEALTHY From page 9A at the bottom of the nose keeps it from getting chapped. Then, wash your hands. Consider wearing a mask. Some infectious disease experts suggest wearing a mask when taking care of a sick grandchild (they can be bought over-the-counter at drugstores). But wearing them can be uncomfortable and, to your grandchild, frightening to look at. It’s your call. But if the risk is great enough to warrant strapping on a mask, declining to babysit may be a smarter option.

For questions or advice about a specific condition, talk with your physician. CAR From page 10A that he doesn’t expect a completely autonomous car -- one with no specific limitations with respect to traffic environment or driving speed -- on the market for the next 40 years. “The big challenge to total automation is getting safety approval. Even if you assume the system is ready by 2020, approval is going to be problematic.” Winner is scheduled to address the challenges facing the development of the driverless car during the panel session “IT Meets the Automobile: Interactive Advanced Vehicle Technologies and Self-Driving Cars” at the ASME Advanced Design and Manufacturing Impact Forum in Buffalo, New York. Visit www. asme.org for more information. CASE From page 11A already spent as much as 23 years in prison after being convicted of murder, have been exonerated and set free. Now, Kenneth Thompson, Brooklyn’s newly-elected district attorney (who defeated Hynes last year in a bitterlyfought contest), is, as the New York Times put it in a recent news article, “grappling with a

metastasizing wrongful conviction scandal in which dozens of imprisoned men have asked for freedom, their convictions linked to mistakes and misconduct by police and prosecutors in the violent, drug-plagued 1980s and 1990s. It is a tidal wave that could dwarf other exoneration clusters.” This wrongful conviction scandal, mind you, concerns just one borough of one American city. But, like the Central Park Jogger case, the terrible miscarriage of justice that is being uncovered there underscores that for many individuals accused of a crime, the criminal justice system’s operating principle has been, not innocent until proven guilty, but guilty until proven innocent. That terrible reality brings us back to the question I posed at the beginning, and a host of others. They include: How much is one’s innocence worth? How much is the wrongfully imposed stigma of a felony conviction worth? How much is the trauma of long years spent in prison worth? How much is the pain and the stigma endured by the family of those incarcerated worth? And, how many more of those now incarcerated in our nation’s jails and prisons for serious and lesser crimes are still enmeshed in the trap the Central Park Five and others now exonerated endured: serving time for a crime they didn’t commit? Lee A. Daniels is a longtime journalist based in New York City. His latest book is Last Chance: The Political Threat to Black America. SUMMIT From page 11A That is why we are sending out this action alert. You need to know about this summit, not just a curious observer, but as a responsive and responsible grassroots activist or as a globally conscious entrepreneur. Let’s continue to be change agents. As we help Africa, we help ourselves, our families and our communities. The U.S. – African Leadership Summit should be more than a “meet and greet” event. My hope is that President Obama will establish lasting and binding “empowerment” relationships and investments with Africa en route to freedom, justice and equality for all. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. is president of Education Online Services Corporation and the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network and can be reached at: http://drbenjaminfchavisjr.wix.com/drbfc. CORPORATE From page 11A “tall cotton” as southerners would say. Trust me, the leeches will be coming. Some will be subtle and try to do the shake down behind the scenes and others will be boisterous and try to drag it through the “court” of public opinion. So let’s watch as they emerge and try to discredit these two major corporations in hopes of fast cash or hush money. I don’t think it is going to work this time. American corporations have had their fill of it. Harry Alford is the cofounder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce®.

By Brennan Williams Throughout her career, Meagan Good has alway attracted attention for her effortless beauty. But oftentimes the 32-year-old actress, who is married to movie executive and Seventh-day Adventist preacher, DeVon Franklin, has also caught flack from the religious community for baring too much skin at events. Last year the “Think Like A Man Too” star received a fair amount of criticism on social media for wearing a revealing royal blue gown with a plunging neckline and a super high slit to the annual BET Awards, where she was on hand to present the Best Gospel Artist award. Despite the critics, Good maintains a positive outlook on how she presents herself, as she explained in the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine. “I feel like religion can get very judgmental and a lot of people don’t approach you with love,” she said. “I try to be conscious of the responsibility I have as a Christian, but if I did

According to SAFE Groups, there has been widespread support from a coalition of groups and individuals throughout Ventura County. “I’ve learned that when victims of assault help others, they help themselves. It is my hope that those who are impacted by recent or past sexual assault or violence will trade in shame for service. Given the warm reception SAFE Groups has received from the Dr. Ingrid Dineen-Wimberly, SAFE military, veterans’ Groups Founder and President and organizations and Ritchie Wimberly, SAFE Groups coother civilian non- founder and Vice President profits, it’s a message of empowerment that resonates,” says Dr. Dineen-Wimberly. “I’m proud of our city, and proud to help create a cohesive community wherein seemingly disparate groups of people join forces to support one another. This community-celebration party is a huge pat on the back to a wide range of supporters.” The launch event was open to the public and included musical performances by “The Question” (Reggae), “Duo Subito” (Classic Rock), and “Big Ben Garcia” (Folk).

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 4523 N VISTAPARK DR, MOORPARK, CA 93021-2147 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 $365,179.17 (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 Auction.com at 800.280.2832 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address www.Auction.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA0900005614-1.

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 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.

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.

You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property.

The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: July 30, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Courthouse.

Friday JULY 4, 2014

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.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of ARTHUR JOHN FROST. A Petition for Probate has been filed by DAVID FROST in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that DAVID FROST be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: July 30, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J-6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E. Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Justice Center Probate. If you object to the granting

of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: /S/Jeanne M. Kvale, Esq.

Victoria Ave., Ventura, CA 93003 all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 977 VIA PALERMO THOUSAND OAKS, CA 91320 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $580,958.81 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. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding

on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.PRIORITYPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 013013-CA. 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. FOR SALES INFORMATION: (714) 573-1965 Date: 6/9/2014 Date Executed: CLEAR RECON CORP.

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. WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT, AND ANY INFORMATION WE OBTAIN WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. SALE INFORMATION LINE: 714-730-2727 or www.lpsasap.com Dated: 6/13/2014 PEAK FORE-

A Petition for Probate has been filed by BONNIE BROWN in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that BONNIE BROWN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: July 10, 2014 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93036, Juvenile Courthouse. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: /S/Katherine H.

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 877-484-9942 or visit this Internet Web site www.USA-Foreclosure.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2014-CA006753 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 successful bidder(s) will have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to return of the deposit paid. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. Date: 6/16/2014 R.E.F.S.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: July 31, 2014 at Time: 9:00 A.M. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E.

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.

Totten announced that Albertsons LLC (Albertsons) was ordered to pay $3.3 million to settle a lawsuit charging illegal disposal, transportation, storage, and mismanagement of hazardous waste. Albertsons has 195 retail stores and two distribution centers currently operating in California. There are eight open Albertsons stores in Ventura County, and two that closed during the pendency of the action. The settlement is the culmination of a civil enforcement action filed in Orange County Superior Court on behalf of 11 agencies led by the offices of the district attorneys in the counties of Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura, and the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office. Albertsons violated California hazardous waste laws by unlawfully disposing of and transporting hazardous waste, and failing to properly manage that hazardous waste at its California facilities. The hazardous waste Albertsons generated at each facility included, but was not limited to, over-the-counter medications, pharmaceuticals, aerosol products, ignitable liquids, batteries, electronic devices, pool chemicals and other products that contain hazardous materials. Albertsons agreed to pay $3.3 million including $2.7 million in civil penalties, $300,000 for investigation costs, and $350,000 for supplemental environmental projects that will enhance enforcement of California's environmental laws. The Ventura County District Attorney's Office will receive $327,711 in civil penalties and $14,250 in costs.

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