Senator Anderson Declines Invite 9-Year-Old Boy Sang to Luncheon with Pres. of Mexico – Gospel Song Until His Cites Mexico’s Incarceration of Marine Kidnapper Set Him Free

California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris was at the Tuesday luncheon honoring Mexico’s President Peña Nieto hosted by Governor Brown and First Lady Anne Gust Brown. Attorney General Harris also attended Monday’s state address by President Nieto hosted by the California Legislature.

State Capitol – Senator Joel Anderson (R-Alpine) declined an invitation to a luncheon held this past Tuesday in Sacramento by Governor Brown to honor President Peña Nieto of Mexico in protest of Mexico’s imprisonment of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. For more than five months, Mexico has held Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, a U.S. Marine who served two combat tours in Afghanistan, in a Mexican federal penitentiary with-

Andrew Tahmooressi, who suffers from combat-related PTSD, he was beaten by guards in the prison until he felt his jaw go out of place. “I do not have an appetite for foreign officials who deny US citizens their basic human rights,” said Senator Anderson. “I am concerned that our military would feel betrayed if

it appeared we condoned the harsh and unfair treatment of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.” “I decline this invitation in solidarity with my fellow San Diegan, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, and join millions of Americans in calling for increased pressure on President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Governor Brown to demand his release.”

On the night of March 31, 9-year-old Willie Myrick was playing with his pet chihuahua outside his Atlanta home when a man grabbed him and forced him into a car, police said. “He was cursing at me telling me to shut up and didn’t want to hear a word from me,” Willie told ABC affiliate WSB-TV. “He said

if I told anyone, he would hurt me, like in a bad way.” But according to a report this week by NBC affiliate WXIA-TV, not remaining silent may have saved Willie’s life. A lover of gospel music, Willie, who just turned 10 this week, reportedly started singing the song “Every BOY, See page 12A

Around the Tri-Counties How Can You Improve Your Life In 24 Hours? Words to Live by

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

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan It doesn’t take a whole lot to change your life. You don’t have to make big changes; that’s a false belief that stops us from making any effort. It doesn’t take a whole lot to create favorable changes, or what I would call improvements, in your life. I don’t have 50 years to improve my life. I did years ago but I don’t any more. I don’t have 25 years to improve my life so how can you improve your life in 24 hours? Remember feelings are important. After all, everything we do is for a feeling. Never play down your feelings. Never trivialize

your feelings, but we know that they could change in a moment. You can be on a downer and one meaningful conversation can change the whole picture of your life. Feelings are very changeable. You may feel like “my life is going nowhere, nothing is changing, nothing’s improving, nothing’s happening in my life”. I want to remind you of two basic philosophies that run the earth. 1. Endure the dark nights because joy always comes in the morning. 2. Escape where you are and go to a better place Endurance has its place. There are some things that you must endure for a season; I believe anyone can change. Our decisions create our lifestyle. Your decisions create your joy. God is not responsible for your joy. He is the source of our joy, but not responsible for our joy. The Bible is a book about decisions; who to trust, what to change, what to focus on. You are one Paid Advertisement

picture away from a different feeling. Always remember that when you’re feeling bad, that’s not your life, that’s your feelings. A feeling is not your life. You may feel lonely, but remember that’s a feeling. How do you improve your life in 24 hours? Maybe you are going through a dark season at you don’t want to live another day. Technically nobody has it all together; we just look like we have it together. Everybody has got a part of their life that is in disorder. The best preachers on earth have some parts of their life that they are trying to work on. I want to make sure you realize, you are a secondary investor in your life. God was the first investor in your life. God sculpted you and created you. He is number one but you are number two. God has invested more in you than you will ever know, more than you will ever discover, and it’s your responsibility to discover what God has invested in you. LIFE, See page 12A

Your Words Have Power Inez Knows

Inez Lanns

By Inez Lanns I am a firm believer that our words have power. “I believe that the things that come out of our mouths are produced out of our mindset and therefore shape our lives. Our words shape our lives,” said Rhonda Byrnes, author of The Secret, and I believe that. If you think about where you are in life today and where you

believe you are going, do the words you speak line up with it? What do you think about yourself and what you can accomplish? When a person is heartbroken or sad due to a broken relationship or rejection, listening to sad love songs is only going to make him or her feel worse! If a person is fearful of everything, watching scary movies or negative news is a bad idea. When a person is always complaining or focusing on what they lack, he or she will feel down. Happiness, peace, love and joy are the feelings that make you feel good. Smiling and laughing look and feel great to everyone! It is very important to know yourself. Do things that make you happy and try to stay away from things that bring

about stress, anxiety, anger, sadness or hurt. When you slow down and count your blessings, start focusing on what you have and are grateful for. It leaves room for more good things to come into your life. If you have a person in your life (could be a spouse, child, coworker, or friend) and that person always complains, would you want to do more for him or her? Now if that person was always grateful and appreciative of what you do, would that motivate you to do more? Most people would gravitate towards the more pleasant situation. The words that are spoken to us stick with us. Whether they are good or bad, positive or negative, they replay in our minds and WORDS, See page 12A

Begin by Smiling The Mind Matters By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC “All you need in the world is love and laughter. That’s all anybody needs. To have love in one hand and laughter in the other.” ~ August Wilson Laughter improves the body, mind and spirit. If we can laugh at our troubles, we can create positive biochemical changes in our body which will help reduce feelings of depression or helplessness. When we laugh, we breathe more deeply, which fills our body with oxygen and improves our immune system. Our blood pressure decreases and endorphins and other natural pain-relieving hormones are released. We create a better state of mind and when we are in a better state of mind, we are able

to think more calmly and clearly. Our entire body relaxes. We feel joy. Perhaps “laughter is the best medicine”. In stressful situations, our body suffers. We create disease within our physical self. In fact, it’s been estimated that as many as 90% of doctor’s visits are for stress-related symptoms! The first symptoms may be headaches or chronic colds. If stress continues depression, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, sexual dysfunction and possibly cancer can result. The long-term effects of laughter release neuropeptides that help fight stress and improve your immune system. Laughter can ease pain by producing natural painkillers and help you to cope with difficult situations.

Constant stress robs us of our sense of humor. It takes the fun out of life! When we are children, we laugh on average about 400 times in a 24 hour period. As adults, we only laugh about 17 times a day! What a tragedy! SMILING, See page 12A

The Ventura County Fair, July 30 – August 10 closed the gates for another year after 12 days of good times and country fair fun. The 2014 Ventura County Fair provided exciting and affordable entertainment for all tastes. Fairgoers sampled food in the Agriculture Building, celebrated their long relationships at the Blessing of the Marriages ceremony and played with home made wooden toys in the Youth Expo. They took a scenic ride on the Ferris Wheel, competed in the Junior Fair Board’s “Quick Six” Slider Eating Contest, and watched FREE Grandstand concerts by top-name artists like The Beach Boys, WAR and Jake Owen. County residents came out strong with more than 18,000 competitive entries, displayed in exhibits throughout the fair. The Ventura County Fair welcomed visitors from every corner of the county. Fairgoers from all ten Ventura County cities told their own unique stories. Santa Paula residents shone in the Gem & Minerals De-

partment. Ojai residents won prizes in agriculture, and Port Hueneme exhibitors crafted beautiful quilts. Camarillo entries won big with herbs and produce, and folks from Fillmore took home grand prizes for their livestock. Venturans constructed prize-winning gardens, and Oxnard exhibitors received awards for home arts. Simi Valley winners were showcased in the Youth Expo and the Floriculture Department, Moorpark residents won prizes for their clothing and textiles, and Thousand Oaks gardeners earned awards for their produce. Friends,

neighbors and families joined these winning exhibitors to see the exhibits and congratulate the winners. Fair attendance numbers were strong, with 303,850 people attending the 2014 Fair. The Ventura County Fair credits the numerous Special Admission Days, like Dollar Day, Youth Day and Senior Day for the attendance. These Special Admission Days help make the Fair affordable to all. Also to be credited are the free shuttle buses throughout the county, which made transportation easier for fairgoers. FAIR, See page 12A

Texting & Telephoning While Driving, Children Spending Hours Playing Video Games, Is Technology Taking Over Our Lives?

“I can’t tell you how many near misses I have had from people on their phones, in their cars. My son is allowed games once a week, on my cell for 10 minutes, that’s it. He has a room of games (board), paints, a telescope, etc. I want him to know what’s around him and have his mind expanded. I firmly believe technology is taking over. I went to a BBQ and everyone was on their cell, on FB and whatever else. It was all rude and boring. I went to visit and instead everyone went to post who knows what. There is no face to face anymore, and it’s sad. : (”

“We are allowing technology to take over our lives. We have become a microwave society because we want things to happen, or occur right away. The government is creating new technologies that entice us and makes us want to get the latest in everything. Yet, everyday lives are being taken because we are engulfed in technology. Not paying attention to the road, not having in-person conversations, we have lost the way of simple communication. All of the smart phones serve to dumb society down. Most people would rather text than talk, email versus speaking. Pretty soon robots will only exist, not humans.”

“Why are we as parents allowing technology to make us useless? Diminishing our thinking capacity. It has taken over our lives and like any addiction; we will kick and scream if someone take it away. Not so much of an answer, just an opinion.”

“Talking on the phone and texting while driving is stupid. Excessive use of miraculous life changing technology can make us more disconnected from each other and dulls our common sense, and desensitizes us to each others humanity.”

“Yes, technology has taken over our lives. There has become a sense of urgency causing us to text and telephone while driving. We have disregarded our own safety and the safety of others. I just read the other day that someone was posting on Facebook while driving. I said to myself. “No one is that selfish.” Most of all what about the passengers? Why couldn’t this wait? I was rear-ended a couple of years ago because someone was texting. What has happened to paying attention while you drive?

“I believe technology has taken much of our communication interaction. No longer are we able to speak comfortably with one another. We lose touch with one another. It can take our time and consume all of our energy for example. I have seen social media ruin relationships. We become so involved and lose sight to what is important. We need to be careful and take time to talk to others face to face. You can tell a lot more from a person in front of you with their body language than a text from a friend.”

Will Attorney General Eric Holder pursue a civil case against Michael Brown’s killer?

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson, New America Media Attorney General Eric Holder has a compelling federal case in the Michael Brown killing if he decides to bring civil rights charges against Ferguson Missouri cop, Darren Wilson. He’s certainly taken almost unprecedented lightning fast first steps in that direction. He’s got a phalanx of FBI agents assigned to the case. He’s authorized an autopsy by a crack medical examiner from the military. He personally travelled to the city to review procedures with civil rights division attorneys and investigators. None of this would have been done without the personal approval of President Obama, who already has made more statements on the Ferguson furor and the Brown killing than he has on any other racially charged

Back to School for Virtual Students, Anything But Routine

New school supplies and meeting new teachers are still part of the first day of school for students enrolled in California Virtual Academies (CAVA), IQ Academy California (IQCA) and Insight Schools of California (ISCA). They’ll meet each other in homeroom and catch up with classmates from last year, but there won’t be any backpacks, school cafeteria food or catching the bus for these students, who go to school full-time online. Instead, they’ll be learning how to log on, manage their homework and meet their

assigned teacher as they learn from home. CAVA, IQCA, and ISCA are tuition-free, online public school, available to students across the state of

California. Students attend school full-time online, and use the internet to access the engaging, award-winning K¹² curriculum. A public SCHOOL, See page 12A

Recruiting for Resident Advisory Council Alternate Members

The Office of Ventura County Supervisor Zaragoza is accepting applications to serve as an alternate member on the El Rio Del Norte Municipal Advisory Council, also known informally as the El Rio MAC. El Rio MAC members serve as unpaid volunteers. The responsibilities of the El Rio MAC are to advise the Board of Supervisors and County agencies and officials on public safety, health, welfare and parks and recreation issues in El Rio, Nyeland Acres,

the Strickland neighborhood and other County unincorporated areas near El Rio. The MAC meets on the third Thursday evening of each month (except August and December) with a prepared agenda of current issues important to the community. The community is encouraged to attend, ask questions and provide comments on items on the agenda. There is also time for local residents to ask questions or to provide their input on issues of concern not on the

agenda. Occasionally, the MAC will conduct special meetings or events in cooperation with the Office of Supervisor Zaragoza. The El Rio MAC, in existence since the 1970’s, has recently been revitalized under the leadership of Supervisor Zaragoza, with new MAC Chair Mike Barber providing guidance, inspiration and energy. Recent MAC meetings have included topics such as Boys and Girls Club after-school and COUNCIL, See page 3A

Burger King is ruling a larger fast-food kingdom — and having to defend its move on social media. The U.S.-based restaurant chain made it official Tuesday announcing that it agreed to merge with the Canada-based Tim Hortons restaurant chain. The deal, valued at about $11 billion, will create the world’s third-largest fastfood company, with about $23 billion in annual sales and more than 18,000 restaurants in 100 countries. The new global company will be headquartered in Canada, but each brand will be managed independently, with Burger King retaining its U.S. offices in Miami, the two companies said in a joint statement. With a new base in Canada, the Burger King merger quickly was lumped into the growing public outcry over tax inversions, which allow U.S. companies to

lower their tax bills by reincorporating in a country with lower corporate tax rates through a merger with a foreign firm. By midday several thousand comments had flooded Burger King’s Facebook page. On Twitter, #TimHortons was a trending topic with #BoycottBurgerKing

and similar tweets numbering in the hundreds. Burger King CEO Daniel Schwartz, who will become group CEO of the new company and handle day-to-day management, said that “the company is going to continue to be managed out of our Miami BURGER KING, See page 12A

AG Harris Issues Statement on Appeal of Court Ruling on California’s Death Penalty

SAN FRANCISCO -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris issued the following statement on the decision to appeal the federal district court decision that found California’s death penalty unconstitutional on the theory that it takes too long for courts to consider and rule on defendants’ challenges to their convictions and sentences: “I am appealing the court’s decision because it is not supported by the law, and it undermines important protections that our courts provide to defendants. This flawed ruling requires appellate review.”

Sports News Marcos Maidana:

'Floyd Mayweather Not as Good as People Think'

By Elias Cepeda Marcos Maidana exceeded most pundits' expectations last May when he lost a majority decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Heading into his Sep. 13 welterweight title rematch against "Money," Maidana is letting the world know that Mayweather didn't live up to billing. "He's not as good as people think," the Argentine said during a recent Showtime media round table. "I was able to pin him to the ropes and land punches, so he's not as difficult or as invincible as people think. He's hittable. You can land on him. I made mistakes. I was a little too anxious. He never hurt me, but he's got a respectable punch. You've got to respect him." Maidana insists that he hasn't tried to overhaul himself in this current camp for Mayweather. "[I'm] just working on my distance control and a couple other minor changes," he said. However, the brawler expects that he will have improved more than Mayweather could have from their first fight.

NBA's Allen May Press Trespassing Charges Against Miami Teens

Ray Allen children were sleeping, officials said. “Shannon, Ray and (their lawyer) are going to be meeting with authorities,” family spokeswoman Meredith Geisler said. Allen, in a statement questioned the decision of law enforcement officials, who said they were unable to charge the seven 18 and 19 year-olds with burglary or trespassing. “The suggestion that anyone can unlawfully enter into someone’s locked home and then into an occupied bedroom in the middle of the night without consequences is unsettling,” Allen said in a statement to Reuters. The group, which had been attending a nearby party, entered Allen’s home and fled after startling Shannon Allen while she slept, according to Coral Gables police spokeswoman Kelly Denham. There was not enough evidence to charge the group with burglary, and police could not charge trespassing as no officer saw the incident, officials said. Only a member of the family who witnessed it can file charges, said Denham.

Melo Follows LeBron's Lead

Just like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony is dropping a bit of weight heading into the 2014-15 NBA season. According to the New York Post, the Knicks forward aims to get his weight down to around the same as when he entered the NBA in 2005 as a 230-pound rookie with the Denver Nuggets. Last season, Anthony was listed at 240 pounds, but he likely got heavier as the season went on. Melo has been criticized as "too tired" to hit critical shots late in games. Among the NBA's top 25 scorers last

was the steepest. "He wants to be as athletic as he was when he was a rookie," the Post reported. According to another source, Anthony has been in the gym three times a day performing basketball and agility drills, lifting weights and doing yoga. "[Being thinner] will prolong their careers," said Reggie Miller, the slender star of the Indiana Pacers who was known for making clutch 3-pointers in his prime. Miller said extra weight on aging NBA players means more wearand-tear on their bodies.

'I'll Never Fight Rashad Evans'

Former teammates Rashad Evans and Jon Jones eventually fought one another after a bitter feud, but current Evans teammate Anthony Johnson says that will never happen with him and "Suga." "That just won't happen," Johnson told UFC.com. "That's just how it's going to be with me. I'll tell them I'll go up to heavyweight and fight. By that time Rashad should have a fight, and whatever the outcome is going to be, is going to be. Then I can have my fights at heavyweight or light heavyweight. “But I won't fight him, ever. We fight each other every day in the gym, so I think it's just pointless to go down that road and fight a brother." There are plenty of people on the resurgent UFC star's hit-list, however. First off, he'd like to fight Ryan Bader in October. Bader beat Ovince St. Preux via unanimous decision. Johnson was critical of the fight but still admires Bader's skill. "It was a boring fight,"

Anthony Johnson has a clear plan to becoming UFC champ. he said of Bader's win. "Exciting fighters put on exciting fights, and that's what fans want to see." Johnson is finally willing to call out potential opponents. “People finally want me to start calling people out, you know what I mean?" he said. "I never did that before. But I've always wanted to fight Ryan Bader because I've always thought he was a tough fighter. "Nobody has really seen my wrestling, so a fight with [Bader] would

be a good way for me to display my wrestling. In my opinion, he is a better wrestler than Phil Davis." After Bader, Johnson says he'd like to fight number one contender Alexander Gustafsson on the same Jan. 3 card where Daniel Cormier will challenge Jon Jones for his light heavyweight title. "It will be a good fight," he said of fighting the Swede. "Gus is taller than me, but I think we have the same amount of length of reach. So it'll be interesting. Gus likes to move a lot and I like to stalk people and see what they have to offer. It will be a hell of fight. I definitely want to give the fans what they want to see. “Hopefully we can make the Jones-Cormier fight, one of those fights where that whole card is like a preview of what the light heavyweights have to offer." Johnson's loyalty to teammates and ambition are both admirable. Do you think he can continue to roll through the 205 pound division to a title shot?

Agent for Greg Monroe Pursued Sign-and-Trade Deals with Five Teams

By Brett Pollakoff Restricted free agency hasn’t been kind to Greg Monroe of the Pistons. But it’s not for a lack of effort on the part of agent to get an agreeable deal done. Monroe averaged 15.2 points and 9.3 rebounds per game last season, and many believe that’s just the beginning of what he will be able to do over the life of his career. But since the Pistons could match any offer Monroe might have received from other teams this summer, his representation didn’t bother to seek any that could have potentially set an artificial value on his services, and restricted his earning potential over the next four years. Monroe’s agent did, however, seek to find another way out. From Michael Lee of the Washington Post: Monroe and his agent, David Falk, never sought an offer sheet from another team but pursued sign-andtrade proposals with at least five other teams, including Portland and Oklahoma City, according to person familiar with the discussions. Monroe denied re-

Greg Monroe ceiving a reported five-year, $60 million offer – or anything close – from Pistons and would’ve been unlikely to accept either way. His frustrations with the Pistons are understandable since he is about to have his fifth coach in five years with incoming coach Stan Van Gundy (who will also serve as team president) and Detroit is no closer to being a playoff team than it was when he arrived. Monroe doesn’t have anything against Van Gundy but is uncertain if he has the patience to invest four or five more years in the Pistons. Next summer, Monroe might be able to go where he pleases without

much competition. Kevin Love is likely to re-sign with Cleveland (once the Cavaliers consummate the expected trade with Minnesota) and Marc Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge will be the only other quality big man available. Several teams will also have cap space under a steadily increasing ceiling that could mean more money for the 24-year-old Monroe. Monroe would certainly have options as an unrestricted free agent following the conclusion of next season, but only if he continues to improve, and only if he manages to remain as durable as he’s been during his first four years in the league. Financially, seeking a max contract via sign-andtrade is the way to go if the Pistons aren’t coming with the amount of money he’s seeking, and if that doesn’t work out, playing for the qualifying offer of just over $5 million next year in order to reap the benefits the following season would, in theory, make a lot of sense. But the injury risk is real, which makes Monroe’s situation extremely interesting, no matter how it ultimately plays out.

LOS ANGELES -- Officials say that more than a fifth of all University of California freshmen will come from such places as Texas, Washington, China and India and each will pay an additional $23,000 in tuition, providing the system with an estimated $400 million in extra revenue that officials say helps support the education of Californians.

Less than half of high school graduates who took the SAT in 2013 were prepared for college, continuing a five-year trend. Less than half – 44 percent -- who took the ACT had the reading skills necessary for college. That’s down from 53 percent in 2009. And nearly a third failed to meet standards in four areas: reading, English, science and math. The failures have persisted despite years of new tests, new curricula and new demands on teachers, notes educational researcher and consultant Charles M. Reigeluth, author of “Reinventing Schools: It’s Time to Break the Mold,” (www.reigeluth.net). “We continue to approach the same problems with the same sorts of solutions, despite the fact that they’re not working,” he says. “Instead, we need a fundamental shift in how we educate our children. Our public school system was designed to meet the needs of a long-ago era – the Industrial Age. It’s not working because we’re now in the Information Age.” Teachers unfairly shoul-

der much of the blame for the lack of progress, he notes, but they’re hamstrung by roles and rules that don’t work for 21st century students. His multidimensional approach includes reducing bureaucracy in schools; encouraging students to teach each other with teacher supervision; having interns and other paraprofessionals, including retiree volunteers, assist with guiding student learning; and creating an “educational cooperative,” where a community’s adults can earn access to learning resources, advancing their own education, in exchange for helping students learn. • Mentor … the same 20 to 30 students for several years, addressing all aspects of student development. Students and teachers would develop the deeper relationships that foster real caring on both sides. Mentors would help students prepare a personal learning plan for each project period, six to 12 weeks, including helping each student and his parents choose appropriate instructional goals, subject to standards

set by the community, state and nation. Mentors would also help identify and support the best means for each student to achieve those goals. • Designer … of student work options, mostly projects or tasks, to engage students in the learning process. Open educational resources developed by teachers throughout the country and available to all educators for free via the Internet can alleviate much of the burden of the designer role. • Facilitator … of the learning process, which entails monitoring student progress, enhancing student motivation and coaching student performance. • Learner … the teacher is always learning with the students, about students, from and for the students. The teacher does not have all the answers, but the teacher helps students find answers. And the teacher is always learning more about how best to meet students’ needs. The new paradigm provides sufficient support for teacher learning. TEACHERS, See page 12A

State News Congresswoman Lee Announces Federal Rep. Bass Releases Statement Grant to Expand STEM Education Condemning Anti-Semitic Flyers

Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) announced a $1,900,191 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to the University of California-Berkeley. The grant will fund a five year project to investigate clean energy-focus intervention models to improve learning and career awareness amongst students 14-16. “I am excited to announce this funding for the University of CaliforniaBerkeley to ensure that our nation’s next generation of scientists and engineers undertake the important challenges of securing our clean energy future,” said Congresswoman Lee.

Congresswoman Barbara Lee The programs will work with approximately 975 students at 12 schools with large underrepresent-

ed populations. Students will have an opportunity to learn and apply STEM content and information and communications technology skills to expand their knowledge of energy and energy usage. Opportunities will be available in school day courses and in after school programs. “It is very important that diverse students have access to programs in the STEM fields, especially related to clean energy,” said Congresswoman Lee. “As we work to establish a clean energy future, we will need a diverse workforce ready and able to create a truly sustainable future.”

Board of Equalization Chairman Jerome E. Horton said Chairman Jerome E. Horton. “We estimate that California is losing $8.5

billion in tax revenue to criminals operating in the underworld, and Governor Brown’s signature on this bill will provide us another tool to help recapture the hidden revenues.” If AB 2681 is signed, it will enable the state to impose sales tax on those convicted of trafficking in counterfeit goods at the wholesale level. Under current law, suppliers of counterfeit goods are able to avoid paying sales tax, claiming their items are being sold to retailers who are then charged with collecting and paying taxes on sales to the BOE. This legislation will make convicted criminals at any level of the distribution chain liable for the sales tax.

Counterfeit Crackdown Bill Heads to Governor’s Desk

Sacramento – Board of Equalization Chairman Jerome E. Horton announced that BOE-sponsored legislation to counter our state’s large-scale counterfeit goods suppliers is one step away from becoming law. Assembly Bill 2681 is on its way to the governor’s desk, after the Senate voted it out on August 19, 2014. “Leveraging both state and federal laws that allow for the prosecution of criminal bosses trafficking in counterfeit goods, this measure empowers the BOE to investigate wholesalers of counterfeit goods who distribute illegal products including contraband medicine, electronics, and construction products,”

LOS ANGELES, CA-Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement after reports of antiSemitic flyers being left at a Westwood business: "I am deeply concerned that anti-Semitic flyers with swastikas have been left at a Westwood business this week, and I unequivocally condemn whomever is responsible for this despicable action. Los Angeles thrives because of our diversity, and the Jewish

Congresswoman Karen Bass

community is an integral part of our great city's history and culture. All Angelenos deserve to live, work and play in a city free from intimidation and discrimination. "It is unfortunate that we see these spikes in hateful rhetoric every time there is increased violence in the Middle East. I know that Los Angeles is better than this; this sort of hateful rhetoric has no place in our neighborhoods, and it must stop immediately."

Bill Providing Transparency to the State Water Resources Control Board Passes Assembly Floor

SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Scott Wilk’s, R- Santa Clarita, bill requiring all external scientific peer reviews conducted by state and regional boards to be posted on the State Water Resource Control Boards website passed the Assembly. Assembly Bill 1707 is now on its way to the Governor’s desk, where it awaits his signature. “The need for this bill was discovered while searching for the peer review of the Upper Santa Clara River chloride Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL). The document was later discovered by regional board staff in a three ring binder revealing the lack of transparency this bill seeks to fix,” said

Wilk. “Regional quality boards often impose regulations on communities that may cost millions of dollars and it is imperative that peer reviews are available for public access as a

way for ratepayers to ensure the process is appropriate and necessary.” The performance of the peer reviews is already mandated by law, so the only change AB 1707 makes is requiring the reports be posted for public access. Furthermore, the bill stresses the importance of sound science being employed before requiring ratepayers to fund these mitigations and AB 1707 will be an incremental step in accomplishing that goal. “As long as we make certain that environmental action is conducted through the use of sound science and community consensus, you can be certain that I will continue to fight for its further protection,” said Wilk.

passed, the cities of Grover Beach and Wasco recently abandoned their efforts to place Charter proposals on the November ballot. However, three cities including Arroyo Grande, Costa Mesa and Escondido are among those who will place similar measures before voters in November. Chartering has come under increased scrutiny in recent years, with high profile corruption scandals landing officials from the Charter Cities of Bell and Vernon in jail and three California Charter Cities having recently declared bankruptcy. The Middle Class Taxpayers Association (MCTA) launched www.CharterWarning.com earlier this year to warn the citizens of California of the potential risks and costs associated with Charter proposals. With the deadline for filing charters for the November ballot now passed, MCTA Board Member Dr. Murtaza Baxamusa issued the following statement: "For months, the Middle Class Taxpayers Association has been working to educate the public about the hidden dangers that some city charters contain. Dangers that can open the door for corruption and mismangement that led to the scandal in Bell and paved the road to bankruptcy in other cities. "In the past few weeks, the City Councils of Grover Beach and Wasco heeded our warnings and those from the community and opted against putting a charter measure on the ballot. Realizing the potential

of public support, and the likelihood that these communities would be divided by controversy, these cities wisely decided against moving charter proposals to the ballot and we applaud them for their decision. "A small number of cities have moved to place measures on the ballot despite having almost no public support, and even worse, having just had a charter fight in 2012 – likely hoping that lower turnout in the off year will improve their chances. Costa Mesa placed a charter on the ballot in 2012, and 59% of voters voted No. That same year, voters in Escondido rejected a similar charter measure with 53% of local voters saying No. Sadly, the taxpayers in these communities are once again being forced to foot the bill to put these already-rejected proposals back on the ballot. Those resources could be put to far better use creating jobs or improving public safety. "Proponents of charters had targeted up to 30 cities for potential charter conversion, but the vast majority of those cities they lobbied – including cities like Taft, Moreno Valley, La Mirada and Murietta – all looked at the record of charter cities, and decided that general law was a safer bet for their citizens. "Ultimately, it is clear that as more Californians learn about the potential costs and consequences that chartering can bring to their communities, they are becoming more and more inclined to oppose them."

By Emily Wagster Pettus JACKSON, Miss. — A Mississippi sheriff says a man was beaten and shot two weeks after calling authorities to report a cross burning in his yard, and investigators are trying to determine whether the attack was prompted by people being upset that the man was visited by his mixed-race grandchildren. Deputies were called to a disturbance in a rural community outside Raleigh. Craig Wilson, 45, had been shot in the stomach and beaten and was taken to University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, said Smith County Sheriff Charlie Crumpton.

Investigators heard numerous reports from relatives about what might have started a confrontation between Wilson and 37-yearold Jeff Daniels, Crumpton said. Among other things, the sheriff said investigators were checking whether it might have been connected to people being upset about visits from Wilson's mixed-race grandchildren. The children's mother — Craig Wilson's daughter — is white, and their father is black, the sheriff said. Crumpton said Daniels was arrested and booked with aggravated assault. He was released on $20,000 bond. Wilson and Daniels are both white. The victim is the

boyfriend of the arrested man's mother, Crumpton said. Crumpton said he doesn't know whether there's a connection between the cross burning and the shooting. He said Wilson called the sheriff's department and investigators went to see the burned cross, but Wilson didn't press charges. The cross burning and the shooting and beating took place in the Cohay community of Smith County, about 45 miles southeast of Jackson, where Wilson and Daniels are neighbors, the sheriff said. Crumpton said a case against Daniels could be presented to the grand jury, probably in October.

Five Myths About Buying a Home

Identity Thieves Target Kids as Well as Adults By Jason Alderman I'm sorry to report that child identity fraud is alive and well in 2014. If anything, the problem may be worsening as identity thieves devise new methods to steal – and use – children's personal information. Most commonly, they'll harvest kids' dormant Social Security numbers (SSNs) and use them to illegally obtain jobs or open fraudulent bank and credit accounts, mortgages or car loans. Many victims don't realize there's a problem until they later apply for a student loan, bank account, job or apartment and are turned down because of the poor credit history someone else racked up. Some families are even hounded by collection agencies or arrested because the debts or criminal activities were so extreme. There are no completely foolproof methods to protect your children's identities, but here are some precautions you can take: While it's tempting to simply not register your kids for SSNs until they turn 18, that's not practical in today's world. For one thing, they'll need one to be claimed as dependents on your taxes. You may also need SSNs for your kids to obtain medical coverage or government services or to open bank accounts in their names. Because each person's SSN is unique, it's not uncommon for schools, healthcare providers, in-

surance companies, banks and others to require them as ID. However, don't be afraid to ask: • Why do they need to use an SSN – is there a legal requirement? • Will they accept alternative identification? • What will happen if you don't disclose it? • What security precautions do they take with personal information? • Will they agree not to use the SSN as your child's personal identification number on correspondence, account statements or ID cards? Watch for these clues your child's personal data may have been compromised: • They receive preapproved credit account offers. • They receive calls or billing statements from collection agencies, creditors or government agencies. • You're unable to open a bank account in their name because one already exists with the same SSN. • They're denied credit, employment, a driver's license or college enrollment for unknown or credit-related reasons. Remember, there could be legitimate reasons why your child is receiving credit offers. For example, it could be a marketing outreach from an affiliate of your bank or because you opened a college fund in their name. If you strongly suspect

or have evidence that identity theft has been committed, you can: • File a police report and keep a copy as proof of the crime. • Contact the fraud units at the three major credit bureaus for instructions: Equifax (800-525-6285), Experian (888-397-3742) and TransUnion (800-680-7289). • Notify the Federal Trade Commission (877438-4338), whose Identity Theft site contains information on fraud alerts, credit freezes, how to work with police and much more (www.ftc.gov). • Ask Social Security (800-772-1213) whether anyone has reported income using your child's SSN. Search "Identity Theft" at www.ssa.gov for information. • Contact the IRS' Identity Protection Unit (800980-4490). The FTC recommends contacting the three credit bureaus around your child's 16th birthday to see whether they have credit reports on file. (There usually wouldn't be unless they're an authorized user on one of your accounts.) If there is a report – and it has errors due to fraud or IDENTITY, See page 10B

Overdraft Fees Drain Consumer Dollars

By Charlene Crowell Consumers who maintain low and no cushions in their checking accounts may have thought that the overdraft “banking service” was a big help against bouncing checks. But as the use of debit cards have replaced most cash purchases, this “service” has become a drain of available cash for consumers and a major source of revenue for banks. A new research report by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) found that the majority of debit card overdraft fees are incurred on transactions of $24 or less. Further, as the majority of overdrafts are repaid within three days when

Charlene Crowell the bank repays itself from the consumer’s next deposit, the median overdraft fee of $34 carries the equivalent of 17,000 percent annual per-

centage rate (APR). Earlier research by the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL) similarly found that consumers using debit cards paid $1.75 for every $1 overdrawn. “With the advent of debit cards, consumers started using them rather than cash for more and more small or impulse purchases. And, as banks and credit unions covered more and more of the transactions, they have assessed higher fees for doing so,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “Today, more than half of consumer checking account income is from overdraft fees.” An overdraft occurs when a consumer does not have enough money in his or her checking account to cover a transaction, but the bank or credit union pays the transaction anyway in exchange for a fee. Consumers can be charged overdraft fees on checks, debit cards, ATM transactions, automatic bill payments or direct debits from lenders or other billers. CFPB’s new study both reinforces and heightens ongoing concerns that overdraft fees on debit card transactions in particular are harmful to consumers. CFPB also found that a 2010 rule from the Federal Reserve did not solve the overdraft problem. That rule required financial institutions to get consumers’ opt-in to overdraft fees on debit cards; but it failed to address how large and frequent these fees can be. Additionally, many banks used heavy-handed and deceptive marketing tactics to lure consumers to ‘opt-in.’ CFPB found that consumers subjected to overdraft fees on debit cards, pay OVERDRAFT, See page 10B

By Les Christie NEW YORK -- From housing bubble to foreclosure crisis to somewhere in between, the housing market has changed dramatically over the past decade -- and so have many of the rules of homebuying. Here are five once commonly believed myths that no longer apply. Myth #1: Buying a home is a great investment If the housing bust taught us anything, it's that the housing market can be just as risky as the stock market -- if not, worse. Homes lost a third of their value nationwide and some markets took an even bigger hit. There are, of course, other factors that can eat even further into those returns, such as maintenance. Have to repair the leaky roof? That will be $500. Need a new water heater? That's another grand. Myth #2: Buying is always better than renting Now that the housing recovery has taken hold, some markets have become way too expensive for homebuyers. One quick way to figure out whether to buy or not: If the home costs more than 15 times the annual cost of renting a similar home, you're better off renting.

For most people, the decision comes down to the number of the years they plan to stay in the home. If you think you can stay put for five years or more then it might be worth taking the plunge. Myth #3: The three most important factors are location, location, location. Finding the perfect home used to mean that it had to be in a well-established community with low crime, good schools and far from annoyances like airports or heavily used roads. But these days some of the best deals are found in neighborhoods that have yet to reach their peak. Myth #4: Buy the worst home in the best neighborhood. The advice seems sound: You can fix up a bad home but you can't clean up a whole neighborhood. Those bad homes,

though, can come with some pretty huge flaws. In the end, you may end up paying more on that fixer-upper than if you had bought a home in better condition in a up and coming neighborhood. Myth #5: All real estate is local. It wasn't too long ago that the way to make profits in real estate was to study the local market inside and out. Local conditions, such as wages, unemployment and population growth, would dictate the direction of local home prices. Not anymore. International buyers accounted for about 7% of all U.S. home purchases during the 12 months ended March 31, while investors accounted for 20% of sales. And many of these buyers are paying in all-cash, driving prices sky-high.

By Phoebe Chongchua As home prices increase, homeowners have options. Some are quickly gaining back the equity they lost over the last several years. That creates opportunity to refinance, remodel, or maybe sell. If you're sitting on the fence trying to determine whether to list your home for sale or to stay in it, consider these important tips. Tip 1: Do a "Love it or List it" Analysis. On a sheet of paper write down the things you love about your home and the things that might cause you to decide to list your home for sale. Take your time doing this. Really give every aspect of your home consideration. Is it where you want to stay for a long while or even retire? Is the area or your home lacking something? Could remodeling your home be the solution? Once you do the "love it or list it" analysis, you'll be able to identify which parts of your home are bothering your the most. With that information, you can now start to explore more options.

Phoebe Chongchua Tip 2: Do your research. This applies to both options–remodeling or selling. Visit other neighborhoods that you might like to live in. Carefully explore the surrounding area, the homes, the types of people, the shops, businesses, and churches. Think about your commute. Also, invite some real estate agents to your home to get some expert advice on how much your home would sell for and how long it might take. When you get that information, it can help you determine if selling is best.

Next visit some remodeling companies. See their remodeling projects and invite their team to your house to offer their suggestions. Sometimes what a homeowner thinks is a difficult remodel is really quite simple. Of course, the opposite is true too. Tip 3: Have your financial records in order. Whether you decide to remodel or sell, having your financial records easily accessible is vital. You'll need these documents for both situations. Knowing what upgrades you've already done to the home will help when it comes time to sell. And, having your tax documents and other financial information on hand will help you if you decide to remodel using financing. Take your time and pay close attention to all the details. Both selling and renovating a home are major decisions. Make sure you give the decision-making process ample time as well as compiling a considerable amount of research to make your final decision.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is ordering Amerisave Mortgage to pay $19.3 million, alleging the lender scammed thousands of customers with a bait-andswitch mortgage-lending scheme. CFPB also accuses Amerisave affiliate Novo Appraisal Management Company and Patrick Markert, the owner of both companies, of being involved in the scam. CFPB says that between mid-2011 and 2014, Amerisave advertised misleading interesting rates and then locked customers in with pricey up-front fees. The agency alleges that Amerisave failed to honor its advertised rates to customers and illegally overcharged them for affiliated

"third-party" services. "By the time consumers could have discovered that the advertised low rates were too good to be true, they had already committed to pay hundreds of dollars to Amerisave," says CFPB Director Richard Cordray. Amerisave advertised its low interest rates through online banner ads and searchable rate tables on third-party websites. When customers clicked on the ad, they were then directed to Amerisave's website, which provided consumers with quotes based on an 800 FICO score, even if customers had entered a lower FICO score on the previous third-party website. As such, CFPB says that customers were being provided with misleadingly

low interest rates. CFPB also says that consumers were required to order and pay for an appraisal before Amerisave would provide a Good Faith Estimate for the mortgage. Amerisave then charged consumers for "appraisal validation" reports and failed to disclose that the service was being provided by Novo, a move that violates RESPA, CFPB stated in its allegations. CFPB asserts that the price charged on the appraisal report was inflated by as much as 900 percent. Amerisave and Novo have been ordered by CFPB to refund $14.8 million to customers who were affected, as well as pay $4.5 million as a penalty. Markert is ordered to pay an additional $1.5 million penalty.

"Longevity has a strong genetic component, but how healthy you are as you age is largely up to you," says Harvey Jay Cohen, M.D., director of the Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development at Duke University in North Carolina. "Most of us want to be healthy until the end, not live to 100 and be a decrepit wreck." Join a laughter club Numerous studies have shown that laughter can reduce stress, improve your immune system, even relieve pain. The findings have prompted the proliferation of "laughter clubs" around the globe. Participants, many of them with chronic illnesses, gather together to laugh and do breathing exercises.

99-Year-Old Sprinter Ida Keeling Leaves Aging in the Dust

By Ron Dicker Ida Keeling finished last in her 100-meter race at the Gay Games in Akron, Ohio, but she still ran away with the show. That's because Keeling is 99 years old and really fast for her age. Keeling, a great-great grandmother from New York City, finished the race against competitors of many ages in 59.80 seconds. Her daughter, Shelley, also Ida's coach and a competitor at the Gay Games, said that no woman at 99 "has ever recorded a faster time in an internationally certified 100-meter race," NewsNet5 writes. USA Track And Field, the national governing body of the sport, does not list a 100-meter best for women beyond the 90-94

Ida Keeling age group. But Keeling has previously made headlines for her record-setting ex-

ploits. Keeling actually walks with a cane, the Plain Dealer reported. "Walking with a cane takes minutes," she told the newspaper before the race. "Running with the champions takes seconds." According to outlets, Keeling began running after she lost her two sons to drug-related killings more than 30 years ago. This was her first Gay Games, a competition she sees "just as running with other runners," her daughter said. Keeling turns 100 in May and hopes to break more records. Her secret to staying young and swift? "Do what you need to do, not what you want to do and don't leave out your daily exercise," she said. "Love yourself."

Fed Report Paints Dreary Retirement for Some

By Carole Fleck Five years after the Great Recession, many Americans say they’re still struggling to get by financially. Nineteen percent of adults ages 55 to 64 say they have no retirement savings or pensions to fall back on, according to a survey by the Federal Reserve. Also troubling was that an additional 20 percent of people age 60 and older say they’ve given no thought at all to planning for their retirement. That was also the case for about 19 percent of people ages 45 to 59. Sara Rix, a senior strategic policy adviser with the AARP Public Policy Institute, says the Fed survey reinforces what other studies have shown for years — that people may not be able to maintain their standard of living once they leave the workforce for good. “Many Americans near retirement age have not saved adequately — often because they lack ac-

cess to a retirement savings plan or because they have little extra income to save,” Rix said. “Continuing to work may be one of the few options available to those who are not financially prepared for retirement, and many older Americans expect to do just that … but it doesn’t always work out,” she said. “Far fewer Americans actually work in retirement than say they expect to, often for reasons beyond their control. For those with little or no retirement savings and dim job prospects, a much reduced standard of living in retirement may be the sad outcome after a lifetime of work.” About half of full-time workers, and even more part-time workers, don’t have access to employerprovided retirement savings plans. And not surprisingly, those with higher incomes were more likely to save than lower earners, the survey found. So how are current retir-

ees paying for their golden years? About 75 percent cited Social Security, the survey found. Some 44 percent said pension plans. Nearly 32 percent had savings outside of a retirement account. Almost 29 percent had an IRA and nearly 19 percent said they were relying on a 401(k)-type plan. The Fed commissioned the survey last year to better understand how consumers perceive their financial well-being and how certain money matters shaped their decision-making and spending patterns. Results of the survey, which polled more than 4,000 people, were released last week. Although the recession officially ended in June 2009, its effects are still reverberating through many households. Nearly 40 percent said they were barely managing to get by. And more than one-third said they went without some form of medical care in the last year because they couldn’t afford it.

By Gwendolyn Harris If your passport has more stamps than the post office, you’re probably a travel pro who understands that long flights are just part of the journey to a beautiful destination. Although being able to sit for an extended amount of time is an acquired skill, it does come with some risks no matter how much of an experienced traveler you are, one of those being deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The first reported case of travel-related DVT happened in 1954 when a doctor developed a blood clot after a 14-hour flight. DVT happens when blood flows too slowly through the veins, eventually forming a blood clot deep in the veins (hence the name). These clots typically form in the legs and are life threatening. If left untreated, you can develop a pulmonary embolism, which happens when the blood clot breaks away and travels to the lung. Are you high risk? Anyone can experience DVT, but the following can increase DVT risk when flying for eight hours or more: • Pregnancy • A recent operation (within the previous two months) • Obesity • Cancer • Prior history of DVT or PE • Blood clotting disorders like polycythaemia or thrombophilia • Being very short or very tall

• Having a close relative with DVT or PE • Women on the combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP) or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) • Recent chronic illness such as heart attack or pneumonia If a long flight is in your future, use these tips to keep your legs healthy: Drink lots of water Water helps with circulation and prevents dehydration. Try to drink more water leading up to your trip instead of guzzling water during the flight. Don’t take sleeping pills - Sleeping pills do exactly what they’re intended to do and render you immobile. Wear compression stockings - These kneehigh stockings apply gentle pressure to your ankles to help blood flow. Studies have shown that wearing these “flight socks” during flights of four hours or more reduced their risk of

leg swelling and DVT significantly. Avoid alcohol - Alcohol leads to dehydration and immobility. Exercise your calves and feet - During your flight, take regular breaks to stand and walk up and down the aisle. To increase blood flow to your legs, try exercises like pressing the balls of your feet down hard against the floor or foot rest every so often. Walk - That long walk to baggage claim after the flight is actually a good thing! If your bag isn’t checked, be sure to spend a little time walking right after your flight to increase circulation. It’s normal to experience slight swelling (painless) after a long flight, but if you notice painful swelling and difficulty breathing during or after a long flight, please see your doctor immediately. If you are in a high risk group for DVT, it’s best to see your doctor before traveling.

Maximize Your Teleconferences Apple May Work with Hospitals with Better Tools for iPhone’s New ‘Healthkit’

(NewsUSA) - As the number of workers who telecommute or work remotely increases, conference calls are even more essential for effective communication. Having access to the latest technology will help ensure that all participants in the call are engaged in the presentation and understand the message, making meetings more productive and efficient. Here are the top features to make your teleconferences better: • Screen sharing. Connecting people who aren't working in the same place, screen sharing allows them to collaborate on demos, presentations, reports and more, as if they were in the same room. Finding a conference calling service with screen sharing is crucial for those who work remotely. For example, the screen sharing technology from UberConference makes interaction during conference calls as simple as a single mouse click. "Adding screen sharing has been the single most requested feature from our users since day one," says Craig Walker, co-founder and CEO of UberConference.

This Device Claims to Make Texting and Driving Totally Safe By Avery Stone The dangers of texting and driving are well-known, but a San Francisco-based startup has a device it claims will let

drivers use a phone safely while barreling down the road. Navdy is a device that sits on your car’s dashboard and projects infor-

mation from your smartphone onto a 5.1-inch-wide glass display. The device is also hands-free: you can simply swipe left in front of you to answer a call, or right to dismiss a notification. This way, you can keep your eyes on the road, or at least looking forward, while using your phone. Sleek and user-friendly as it may seem, such technology does not ensure driver safety. Hands-free infotainment technology is no cure for distracted driving, according to more than 30 research studies. Although hands-free devices let drivers look straight ahead, a 2013 study from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that, even when drivers keep their eyes on the road, mental distractions can still be dangerous. As a driver’s mental workload increases, their reaction time slows and brain function is compromised, causing them to scan the road less and miss visual cues. Navdy attempts to reduce this danger by enabling any notification on your phone -- texts, calls, social, navigation -- to be read aloud or disabled entirely. Navdy also reminds potential customers that not every local law in the U.S. is fully down with handsfree texting.

By Christina Farr SAN FRANCISCO - Apple Inc has been discussing how its “HealthKit” service will work with health providers at Mount Sinai, the Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins as well as with Allscripts, a competitor to electronic health records provider Epic Systems, people familiar with the discussions said. While the talks may not amount to anything concrete, they underscore how Apple is intent on making health data, such as blood pressure, pulse and weight, available for consumers and health providers to view in one place. Currently, this data is being collected by thousands of third-party health care software applications and medical devices, but it isn’t centrally stored. Apple also hopes physicians will use this data to better monitor patients between visits – with the patient’s consent — so the doctors can make better diagnostic and treatment decisions. Apple has not divulged much specific detail on HealthKit, which is expected to be incorporated into the iPhone 6 come September.

By Sara Gates What if you could charge your phone just by yelling at it? That’s the idea behind a recent collaboration between scientists at Queen Mary University of London and Nokia. The team is working to develop a prototype charger that could replenish the battery of a mobile phone using human voices, music or even background noise. “Being able to keep mobile devices working for longer, or do away with batteries completely by tapping into the stray energy that is all around us is an exciting concept,” researcher Dr. Joe Briscoe said in a statement released by the university. “We hope that we have brought this technology closer to viability.” So how does it work? To harvest energy from sound, the team used a type of nanotechnology called nanorods, which are capable of generating

electrical energy and responding to vibration in sound. For the prototype, engineers attached electrical contacts on both sides of the rod in order to transform the sound vibrations into energy and capture the charge. So far, researchers have been able to generate five volts of electricity with their prototype, which is enough to charge one phone. While the hope is that sound-powered devices could replace conventional

chargers, Briscoe admits that sound vibrations may not produce quite enough energy to do away with current charging methods entirely. “I believe charging phones this way could be a part of the future, but there probably isn’t enough energy in sound to remove the need for conventional charging completely,” Briscoe told Mashable. “It could help to reduce how often we need to charge our phones, though.”

Amazon’s New Phone ‘Traps’ You

By Michelle Fox The new Amazon Fire smartphone doesn’t measure up against its competitors and “traps” its users in the Amazon ecosystem, according to a new review by Consumer Reports. While the Fire, which wants to be the ultimate shopping phone, taps into all Amazon has to offer, other phones can provide most of those benefits, Mike Gikas, an editor at Consumer Reports, said Thursday on CNBC’s “Power Lunch.” Instead, users are “trapped in Amazon’s retail world.” “What happens with the Fire is that it’s locked

out of Google’s Play app store, which prevents people from downloading very popular Google apps” like Gmail, Google Maps and the search tool Google Now, Gikas said. “These apps work together

in a very interesting and compelling way that a lot of people like.” That said, the Fire isn’t “awful” or necessarily doing anything wrong, he noted. However, when you tally up the test results and compare them to the 100 other smartphones the magazine tested, the Fire “didn’t add up to a high enough score.” One issue was that its battery life is much shorter than its rivals. The phone provides about 10 hours of talk time, compared with other phones that can go close to 20 hours or more, Gikas said.

Commentary Beyond the Rhetoric:

Dogs Get More Respect than Michael Brown

Shrinking Our Military will Guarantee a Major War

Julianne Malveaux

Harry C. Alford

The Obama Administration has a flawed theory: Use diplomacy to keep the peace; it is better relations with other nations that is the easiest and most effective way to maintain peace. That is dangerous thinking. It’s unrealistic! Nations attack the vulnerable and naïve and this proposed policy is going to drive us to the brink. They are proposing to set our military levels to pre-World War II levels. As you all know our weak military became an attractive target to Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany. They attacked us and every other economically viable nation. Over 40 million lives were lost as a result of that. It took us four long years before we were able to build up enough military strength to defeat them. If there is a next time we will not be able to recover as before. Modern technology and weapons of mass destruction are possessed by too many powers. The next major war will be fast and terribly deadly. This administration is setting us up for destruction. It will be the end of America as we know it. Is anybody listening? One senior Pentagon official has been quot-

ed, “You have to always keep your institution prepared, but you can’t carry a large land-war Defense Department when there is no large land war.” He has drunk the “Kool-Aid”. You don’t begin a war with a little military and start to build it up. It is too late and the “game” will be over quickly. The thinking during the Cold War was to keep a military large enough so that we could fight two large land wars at the same time. Well my friends the Cold War is about to return. The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, believes our president is a punk. So far, he is correct as Putin does what he wants to do without fear. Iran and other rising military powers feel the same way. No longer do they fear America and that’s a big problem. They, despite Congress, have already started to shrink back military components. Over 1,000 majors and captains have been fired. This will result in a reduction of enlisted personnel by the tens of thousands. They are planning to cut pay and benefits such as grocery commissaries for military personnel with families. They want to shrink the $1.4 billion direct subsidy provided to military commissaries which will re-

duce inventory and increase the price of groceries for the families also. Our navy and air force will face reductions in strength accordingly. Also, we are going to slow the growth in military family housing. Going into the military and proudly serve our great nation is starting to become less and less attractive. The Marines say “a few good men”. Well it is about to get fewer and fewer. Let’s look at the nations that have total military strength over 1 million. Brazil has over 2 million personnel. China has nearly 4 million. North Korea has 7.6 million. India has 4.8 million. Iran has 2.4 million. Pakistan has 1.5 million. Russia has 3.2 million. South Korea has 2 million. Turkey has 1 million. Ukraine has 1.2 million. Vietnam has 5.5 million. The United States (us) has 2.2 million. That is kind of scary when the United States is out manned or matched by eight other nations. Even Iran has more personnel and is about to get a nuclear arsenal. 5 other nations already have a nuclear arsenal. WAR, See page 10B

Tired of Political Pitches, but not the Fight

It doesn’t matter if you are state legislator or an alderman, a journalist or a local leader. If you are in Ferguson, Mo., you won’t get any respect. You can be the uncle of a victim whose body was left to lie on the street for several hours and you will not be allowed to cover your young nephew. Not many would let dog lay uncovered for several hours. Young Black Michael Brown apparently got less consideration than a dog. The streets burst into flames, but Gov. Jay Nixon couldn’t make a statement until five days after Michael Brown was massacred. We know Michael Brown’s name; we know how he was treated, but Chief Thomas Jackson refused to release the shooting officer’s name until he was forced to by an enterprising Internet hacking group. The officer was supposedly entitled to privacy, however briefly, but Michael did not deserve enough privacy to have his bloody body covered after he was massacred. The police, armed with stun guns, pepper spray, SWAT teams and plastic bullets, were heavily armed to “contain” the protesting crowd. Who will contain the out-of-control so-called officers of the law? When is it all right to

of Obama in 2008. So, I am going to take a different approach. We should ignore the polls for right now. One thing that is clear in midterm elections is that turnout is generally down, which means that the advantage tends to go towards whoever is angrier. That is most frequently the party that is out of power. The second thing that is clear is that the margin of victory for any one will be close. In that sense, every vote really does count. The third thing that must be factored in, and relates to the polls, is that with the greater use of cell phones as exclusive phones for individuals, it has become more and more difficult for pollsters to get completely accurate reads of the public. What does this mean? Simply put, there is nothing inevitable about Republican victories, despite gerrymandering of election districts and voter suppression campaigns. Everything, and I mean everything will depend on turnout. Increasing the progressive electorate and ensuring that they get to the polls on November 4 will make a remarkable difference. In order for this to work, it is not enough to scare people as to the ramifica-

call a McDonald’s a site of trespassing, or to knock reporters around, fail to offer identification, and then get flippant about it? Charles Dooley, the St. Louis County Executive, gave a facetious news conference where he suggested, “We sit down and talk about it.” Let’s talk about the shooter’s police file. Let’s talk about the fully armed and unreasonable police officers. The St. Louis mayor spoke of “protecting the innocent.” Who is innocent? Certainly not the police officer who shot Michael Brown. The unarmed folks chanting “no justice, no peace,” are certainly innocent. With police officers clad in military gear and armed as fully as those who are fighting abroad, the governor said ‘Yesterday was yesterday.” He added, “I’m not looking backward, I’m looking forward.” In other words, he refuses to hold the officers accountable. “We want to get trust built,” says the governor. He seems to be totally clueless. How do you build trust when socalled officers of the law callously and lawlessly fire into peaceful crowds because they could? The governor needs to hold officers accountable before he calls for a “Kumbaya” moment.

What do we tell our young men? Michael Brown had his hands up and he was still shot multiple times. Many of us who have Black teens and young men in our lives. We counsel them to be non-combative, non-confrontational, even humble, so they won’t be shot. But police officers should be punished or even fired if they can’t share their badge information. What do they have to hide? There is absolutely no accountability, with police officers being afforded more protection than a murder victim. During his August 14 press conference, the governor worked very hard to walk a tightrope as he maneuvered his way thorough a set of pointed questions. He talked about “healing,” about “conversation.” Here’s the conversation: A police officer killed Michael Brown while he had his hands up, in surrender mode. Witnesses say that even after Brown held his hands up, the police officers continued to shoot. BROWN, See page 10B

White Cops Kill at Least Two Blacks Each Week George E. Curry

Bill Fletcher, Jr. So, the midterm elections are fast approaching and, with every passing day, you are probably receiving an email and/or letter suggesting that the world will end if the Republicans take the Senate on November 4. If, like me, you are sick and tired of receiving such communications, you might be tending towards turning off and ignoring everything in connection with the elections. Don’t! I am not going to tell you how bad things will get if the Republicans capture the Senate. My guess is that you already know that. You may be denying it. You may say that things cannot get much worse. They actually can. Let me reassure you. I am not going to try to scare you into voting. I actually do not think that such an approach works. It becomes the equivalent of yelling that the sky is falling. The bottom line is that there is a rabid right-wing, represented by today’s Republican Party, that wants to reverse the victories of the 20th century. You know that already. You know that they have been playing the race card since Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” in 1968, and have gone into overdrive since the election

tions of Republican victories, e.g., impeachment; cuts; war with Iran. If people get scarred enough they may just go into their cocoons and hope that everything comes out in the wash. No, we actually have to be inspired. Therefore, in addition to making sure that the Caligula wing of the political elite does not win total control, we have to be actively supporting candidates who are standing on the side of the regular person. We need to be standing with those who support voting rights; who support tolerance for religion and orientation; who are for racial and gender equality; and those against the USA engaging in one war after another. The great labor leader Mother Jones coined the phrase: “Don’t Mourn, Organize.” I will borrow from her and suggest: “Don’t panic; vote!” This is not a time to let anyone turn us around.

Occasionally, police officers behave in such as dastardly manner that it captures international attention. There was the 1997 famous video of four White LAPD officers taking turns clubbing and kicking Rodney King nearly beyond recognition after a high-speed automobile chase. In 1999, on the opposite coast, an unarmed, 23-year-old Amadou Diallo was killed after four policemen fired 41 times into his Bronx, N.Y. apartment, striking him 19 times. In New Orleans, Robert Davis, a retired elementary school teacher, was returning to his hometown after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to inspect the damaged family home. He went to the French Quarters to purchase some cigarettes. Four White officers, who suspected him of public drunkenness, accused Davis of resisting arrest and began beating him. An Associated Press producer filmed a video that showed no indication of resistance. Timothy Thomas, 19, was shot to death in Cincinnati in 2001 by Patrolman Stephen Roach. The officer said he thought Thomas was armed – he wasn’t. The shooting touched off the largest urban unrest in the U.S. since the L.A. uprising a decade earlier. And the list doesn’t stop

there: Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, Frank Jude, Jonathan Ferrell, Kathryn Johnson, Kendrec McDade, Timothy Standsbury, Jr., Kenneth Chamberlain and so many more. Three more names were added to the list in the past month: Eric Garner of Staten Island, N.Y.; Ezell Ford of Los Angeles, and now Michael Brown, the 18-year-old unarmed victim in Ferguson, Mo. Police kill African Americans more frequently than you may realize. According to stats compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice, an unarmed African American died at the hands of an armed White police officer at the rate of nearly two per week from 2005 to 2012. Over that 8-year-period, 400 police killings were reported per year. White officers killed a Black person, on average, 96 times per year. Of those, 18 percent of the African Americans killed were under the age of 21, compared to 8.7 percent of Whites. As bad as those figures are, they grossly understate the problem. The FBI statistics are based on the voluntary reporting of local law enforcement jurisdictions. Currently, approximately 750 of 17,000 law enforcement agencies reg-

ularly report their figures to the FBI. That means if the ratio holds true for all 17,000 agencies, the annual 96 Black deaths at the hands of White cops could be as high 2,170 a year or almost 42 (41.73) per week – nearly six per day (5.94). To be conservative, let’s presume that the death rate for the non-reporting law enforcement agencies is only half of those now reporting. That would still be approximately three Blacks killed by a White police officer every day. According to Officer Down Memorial Page, which catalogues the deaths of all law enforcement officials, 416 cops were deliberately killed in the line of duty from 2005 to 2012, an average of 52 a year from 2005 to 2012. Using the most conservative data, Blacks are almost twice as likely to be killed by police as cops are likely to be murdered in the line of duty. In most of the high-profile cases of police killing unarmed Blacks, there was no justification for the use of deadly force. COPS, See page 11B

BOY From page 1A Praise” until the man -- who had been driving around for almost three hours -- finally threw him onto the street and drove away. “Every praise is to our God,” the gospel song begins. “Every word of worship with one accord.” Touched by Willie’s story, Hezekiah Walker, the songwriter behind “Every Praise,” flew to Atlanta this week to meet the young man. Walker told WSBTV that he believes God spoke through him to “save that boy’s life.” “You never know who you’re going to touch,” the gospel singer said. According to CBS Atlanta, there’s $10,000 reward for the capture of the man who kidnapped Willie. The suspect is described as a black male in his mid- to late-20s.

You are the owner of your company. You are a corporation. People invest in you every day. They invest their energy, their time, their words, their information. They introduce you to others as their friend. This increases your credibility, but you must start seeing yourself as a company. You, like a company, must invest time into you to increase the worth of your company (YOU). I’m going to give you some a few things that I think will improve your day and your life. Life has 3 basic pleasures… Creativity, Progress, and Completion. Creativity is the birthing and the begging of something that excites you. Then we observe and evaluate any progress we’re making. Then when we complete something, it’s finished. You move to another level, another level of pleasure. You have to identify what pleasures you, what excites you. This is more important than anything else on the planet. Which is more important iPad or the Apple Company? The Apple Company, because without the Apple Company there would be no iPad, no iPhone and no iPod. You want to see yourself as extremely important in your world, so you must invest in you. The best gift you can give anybody is a happy you. You must give attention to yourself because nobody is thinking about you all day. They’re thinking about them. Even a critic, the only time they think about you is when they criticize you. You must take care of your mind, because your mind is your life. Find the broken pieces in you because nobody arrived whole. Everybody arrived damaged. The purpose of knowledge is the ability to make changes. Focus on making just one day go right. Why are you trying to make your life time go right? Your life is today because tomorrow has not started. Yesterday is over, tomorrow is not here, so today is your life. Your lifetime involves yesterday, today, and tomorrow, but your life is a 24 hour period, that’s it! If you cannot manage one day, you cannot manage your life. Since the life of God is in us we are life. I decide my successes. I decide my pleasures. Your decisions create your life, your world. That day has been invested in me to see how I can prepare for the future, generate favor and launch favor. So God has planted and given us 24 hours to invest in our life. A day is a divine investment in you. There’s a plan we can implement. There are keys that we can use to make a day the highest level day possible. Today is the seed for tomorrow. You and I are not just trying to survive today; the goal is to live life! Proverbs 4:18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. If your day is not “going right”, remember you are the driver. Life is a collection of goals. Success is the obtaining of something you want. Success is an experience. If you have something you wanted, you succeeded. Your desires will change and your goals will continuously change. You identify those goals and put pictures of them in front of you. You have the nature of God in you. This passion to obtain, this passion to produce is a God thing inside you. You cannot be delivered from that part of your life because you have the nature of God. The keys to improve Your Life in 24 Hours! 1. Identify the dominant

Friday AUGUST 29, 2014

goal of your day. What’s the one thing every day that if you achieve it the day was successful? What’s the dominant goal of today? Do not try to live the future today. When God finished his first day of creativity the Bible said he looked at what he had done, so you know that one of the things you’re going to have to do is learn how to celebrate a day. At the end of that day look over what you have accomplished. You are responsible for your pleasure. What has to happen today for you to feel like this day was successful? Don’t try to drag the past into today. Don’t pull the future into today. Choose one thing a day- that if you accomplish that it has been an achievement. It is possible that in your attempt to live out and squeeze everything into a day that every day you will feel the complexity of your life, and you will not taste pleasure you will not—it’s like swallowing food without the pleasure of eating it. 2. View today as an investment of preparation for tomorrow. Something you do today will create a reward tomorrow. Something you are doing today will birth favorable changes in your future. Today is a seed. Today is an investment. Today is a time that God has given you to invest and things that you will do today will not pay off today. They are long term. Part of today is a seed, so that we will walk into the harvest a month from now. 3. Name the theme of the day Create a theme for everyday of your life. It narrows your focus. Have you ever had your house so messed up that you didn’t know where to begin to clean it up? When you name the theme of a day, you immediately unclutter your mind. You unclutter your life. You unclutter your day. You cannot make a Wednesday decision on Thursday manna. God is distributing to you every day he is giving you something fresh, something new. 4. Prophesy Your Day. A thought is not a declaration. A thought is not prayer. Worry is not prayer. I prophesied what my day will be like. You do not work for your day. Your day is your servant. If you prophesy your day for 31 days, you are going to suddenly sense, “I can sculpture my life.” Life is where you get to choose your own gifts. God gives you a day to choose the gifts you could open that day. Tell your day what will happen. Before I get out of bed every morning, I prophesy my day by saying out loud what the day will be. I give a name to my day and I say I call today restoration day, or favor day, or peace day, or financial increase day or lots of love day! Don’t let the day tell you what it is going to be. You tell the day what it is going to be before it starts. Lonnie G. McCowan is pastor at The Miracle Center of Ventura, in Ventura, CA.

Everyone has different experiences in childhood, but a common example is when adults have called some children “bad.” More times than not, when a child hears he or she is bad, that is what they believe and their actions will show it. The people that believe that they can do anything were told that they could and actually believe it! Therefore, they then set out to achieve it. What we allow into our bodies through our eyes (what we see/watch) and our ears (what we listen to) through the environments that we choose to be in, greatly influence our thought patterns. My belief is what goes into your mind goes into your heart, and what goes into your heart comes out of your mouth. And what comes out of a person’s mouth (words) is what ends up manifesting in their lives. We can recondition or control our thought patterns, but it does take some work on our part. Sometimes it can be difficult to speak positive words if you have spent your entire life hearing negative words. Hearing the negative words can shape a person to be negative. I know so many people who want to be positive and want to be happy, but they have gotten so stuck in their negative ways. But I like to remind a person that being and speaking negative feels horrible! No one enjoys the feelings of anger, hurt, bitterness, loneliness and all those things that bring people down. If you have always been that way or have experienced some situations that have you hurt and down, you can change that. The only way you can change what comes out of your mouth is by beginning to change the way that you think. Pay attention to your thought life, and you will

be able to actually control what comes out of your mouth. Many people don’t pay close attention to that. Some ways to start would be to write down some positive affirmations and say them daily. Post them in common places in your house (the bathroom mirror, fridge, by the night stand). One common exercise for people who are not pleased with their physical appearance is to look in the mirror each day and say, “You are beautiful” until you believe it and can walk in it, even if someone puts you down. Your circumstances and situations around you may not agree with what you desire or what you are speaking. But you have to make up in your mind that you are going to speak life so that you can produce good things in your life. It won’t happen overnight, but if you keep it up it can happen.

It’s the beginning of laughter and it’s contagious. Collect books and movies that are funny and the next time you’re feeling down, bring them out and laugh. Choose to surround yourself with happy and positive people. Be more playful in your daily activities. Give yourself some “laughter therapy” whenever you’re feeling down. As Oscar Wilde said, “Life is too important to be taken seriously!” In my practice, I encourage my clients to lighten up. We focus on the positive aspects and the solutions which bring a sense of peace. Being able to laugh at yourself is an important step on the way to enlightenment…a state of acceptance and love for your true authentic self…including that part of yourself that laughs so hard your belly hurts! May your world be filled with love and laughter! FAIR From page 2A The Ventura County Fairgrounds Receives no Tax Dollars or other State Funding.

There has to be a “compelling interest” that the defendant’s conduct could constitute a federal offense and that there is sufficient evidence against the defendant that the government can obtain a conviction. There are clear elements of each of these hard federal prosecution requirements in the Brown killing. The compelling interest is probably the easiest of the requisites to satisfy. Wilson did not charge Brown with a crime; the 18-year-old was stopped by all accounts for jaywalking. The allegations that Brown was a suspect in a convenience store heist, and that he smoked marijuana, and even that he may have actually had some physical altercation with Warren came way after the fact. Multiple eyewitnesses have been absolutely clear on this crucial point. He was shot on the ground with his hands up. An independent autopsy has confirmed that Brown could not have been shot during a scuffle as Wilson, police, and an anonymous eyewitness claim. The key point is that he was on a public thoroughfare when he was killed. The right to freedom of movement without the danger of undue harm is a fundamental right that’s enshrined in constitutional law and public policy. It’s inviolate. The courts have repeatedly upheld a citizen’s right to freedom of access and movement in public places. Though there was no apparent racial motive in Wilson confronting Brown, his action clearly violated Brown’s right to exercise his freedom of movement. This directly impacts on an individual’s right to life and liberty. This civil right was violated the moment Wilson pre-

sumed that a young black man walking in a public thoroughfare had committed a crime. The safeguard of that right must be a fundamental concern of federal prosecutors. The Brown case also strongly points to systemic issues of excessive force by police. The obvious excessive force that was used was the slaying of Brown. This strikes to the heart of another basic right of citizens, namely the right to life and liberty, and again the freedom from undue harm. His killing once more raised deeply troubling questions about the power of the law to protect citizens from their unimpeded right to life and safety. Federal prosecutors play a major role in insuring that where there’s the suspicion that an individual’s rights might have been violated solely because of their race and gender that the power of federal law is brought to bear to insure that right is protected. Wilson was a police officer and the charge that he abused his power in killing Brown under the color of law is the linchpin of federal prosecutions of local police officers. This was the rationale that federal prosecutors used in the Rodney King beating case to bring civil rights charges against the four LAPD officers that beat King. The crucial legal point was that they acted in an official capacity when they violated King’s rights. The Justice Department scrupulously goes to great lengths to shield itself from the charge that it’s bowing to media or public pressure to prosecute. This is why the percentage of civil rights prosecutions it authorizes is infinitesimally low, especially against police officers. Yet in the Brown slaying there are crucial federal interests in insuring the rights of individuals to be free from undue harm because of their color, age, and being in a public area merely because someone perceives they shouldn’t be in and then acts on that perception with no cause other than that belief or perception. Holder will give serious consideration to the civil rights violations in the Brown killing. This alone sends the strong signal that civil rights violations will always be subject to full and public scrutiny by federal prosecutors. This is exactly why he has a more than compelling reason to not only consider a Warren civil rights prosecution, but has a compelling case for a prosecution.

SCHOOL From page 3A school choice, CAVA, IQCA, and ISCA give parents and families the opportunity to maximize their success with individualized learning. Similar to any first day of school, a student meets virtually with his or her Californiacredentialed teachers and logs in to explore the topics they will study that year. While the technology makes it possible to focus on each student’s individual academic challenges and strengths, it is the partnership between parents and teachers that makes online learning a powerful education alternative for a variety of students. CAVA, IQCA, and ISCA teachers provide a childcentered learning experience, offering instruction and support, one-on-one guidance, and regular interaction with students and parents via an online classroom, email, phone or face-toface meetings. Students have a vibrant school community with plenty of social interaction as well, working with peers in the online classroom, and gathering in-person for events like science fairs and service projects. Students enroll in CAVA, IQCA or ISCA for a wide variety of reasons. Some are advanced learners, motivated to increase their knowledge beyond the basic course offerings, while others are athletes or performers looking to balance a full schedule, as well as those who benefit from a different learning environment and a focused one-on-one learning experience. CAVA, IQCA, and ISCA are still accepting enrollment of students for the 2014-2015 school year. California families are invited to learn more about online education by signing up for inperson and online information sessions being held across the state.

BURGER KING From page 3A office. We are going to continue to pay U.S. taxes as we have been doing,” he said in a conference call with media after the deal’s announcement. The deal was not about taxes, Schwartz said, noting that the corporate tax rate paid by Tim Hortons in Canada is in the mid20s percentage-wise and Burger King’s “blended” tax rate it pays globally, including U.S. taxes, is also in the mid-20s. “So when we look at the combined company we don’t expect there to be meaningful lower or higher tax rates than we had before,” he said. Instead, he said, “What is going to add value and drive growth for the long run is more restaurants around the world and growing sales and profits.” Tax and business planning attorney Paul Gilman of Chicagobased law firm Aronberg Goldgehn Davis & Garmisa expects that Burger King’s U.S. tax rate won’t change much “because they derive most of their income from franchisees, and (those in the U.S.) are still going to be subject to tax,” he said. Burger King has “to get out in front” of any possible public boycott. “All of a sudden people on my Twitter and Facebook feeds are saying ‘Boycott Burger King,’ but don’t boycott (them) because these are small businesses that need the revenue, and Burger King is going to pay U.S. tax on those. They can’t shift those dollars out of the country.” Regardless, Burger King may have a public affairs brouhaha cooking. Several members of Congress, including Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., decried Burger King’s Canadian business move. In recent months, as more companies have used inversions, President Obama and Congress have publicly criticized the moves because they cut into U.S. tax revenue. “Burger King’s decision to abandon the United States means consumers should turn to Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers or White Castle sliders,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. Wendy’s and White Castle are based in Ohio. For the two companies, the merger made good business

sense, says Matt Porzio, vice president of strategy and product marketing at Intralinks, which provides online deal-sourcing tools for mergers and acquisitions. “These big companies have got to grow,” he said, “and the best way to grow right now is to acquire and grow inorganically. It just so happens Tim Hortons is in Canada, which might have a tax benefit to them. But if Dunkin’ Donuts brand group was in their wheelhouse ... they probably would have considered that.” Warren Buffett’s investment firm, Berkshire Hathaway, committed $3 billion of preferred equity financing for the deal, but will not have any participation in the management and operation of the business, the companies said. Tim Hortons’ stock surged 8.5% to close at $81.05, and Burger King’s stock fell 4.3% to $31.00. Tim Hortons, with about 850 outlets in the U.S., can gain reach globally and here with Burger King’s help. And Burger King might get some advice on breakfast strategies to counter new products from Taco Bell and Subway. By combining the two companies, “We are creating a global (quick-service restaurant) powerhouse,” said Alex Behring, executive chairman of Burger King and managing partner of 3G Capital, the majority owner of Burger King. Behring will become executive chairman and director of the new company, and Tim Hortons CEO Marc Caira, as vice chairman and a director, will handle overall group strategy and global business development, the companies said. The new company is expected to trade on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange. Under the deal, Burger King will pay $65.50 Canadian ($59.74) in cash and 0.8025 common shares of the new company for each Tim Hortons share. This represents total value per Tim Hortons share of $94.05 Canadian ($85.79), based on Burger King’s Monday closing stock price. Alternatively, Tim Hortons shareholders may choose either all cash or all stock in the new company. TEACHERS From page 5A • Owner and manager … of the school. Like lawyers and accountants in a small firm, teachers would be partners who own their public school and make decisions about its operations, including budgeting and staffing. This model is already a success at the Minnesota New Country School and other EdVisions schools. This role elevates teachers to that of true professionals, rather than workers controlled by an all-powerful bureaucracy. MCBRIDE From page 7A Simmons said of his daughter the day Wafer was convicted. “And he took that; he took that away from us.” The case sparked national attention as civil rights activists connected McBride’s case to other unarmed young people killed by white shooters. Like Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen who was shot to death by a self-appointed neighborhood watchman in 2012, McBride’s case was a rallying point for those who see justice continually denied to black victims.

“Scandal” Actor Joe Morton Smokey Robinson Taps Industry Nabs First Emmys Heavy Hitters for New Duets Album

Joe Morton, from ABC’s “Scandal,” nabbed his very first Emmy during the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. He won Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama, playing the role of Rowan Pope (the father of Olivia Pope/ Kerry Washington) in the popular series. His win marks the second Emmy award for the show. Seems Daddy Pope was a bit nervous when it was time to name the winner in his category. He expressed, "When my category came up, I looked for a door marked exit," joked Morton from the stage, acknowledging that he didn't expect to hear his name. But once he received his award, all the jitters were gone and he was ecstatic about win. He said, "It’s an incredible feeling to have been in the business this long — this is the first time I’ve been up for one of these things – and given who I was quote unquote up against, it’s terrific. My head is in the clouds somewhere, and my feet are trying to touch the ground."

'Belle' Director Amma Asante Talks Engaging with Moviegoers

Originally slated for development as a script for HBO, Amma Asante’s second directorial project, “Belle,” managed to defy the odds and attract Fox Searchlight as a distributor to showcase the film on a major platform. Inspired by true events and starring Hollywood newcomer Gugu MbathaRaw, "Belle" tells the story of a mixed-race woman, Dido Elizabeth Belle, who was raised in British aristocracy. And despite the period drama taking place during the 18th century, Asante was adamant on interjecting “contemporary resonance,” into the film in an effort to connect with theatergoers. “I worked from my bed-

Amma Asante room in Holland trying to fit these thoughts and feelings on paper, and then suddenly you have this movie that’s out there and people are connecting and engaging with the movie particularly in America,” the British filmmaker recently told

The Huffington Post. “That goes particularly for African Americans to embrace this movie in a way that you can’t imagine that they are going to connect and love the movie… And so, it has given me confidence for the future and for my next movie that I can tell stories that will connect to audiences.” Since its limited opening on May 2, “Belle” has grossed $10.6 million domestically to date, according to Box Office Mojo. Despite, the project’s lackluster ticket sales, the film adds Asante’s name to the growing list of British talent making waves in Hollywood, including Steve McQueen and Idris Elba, who she admires.

Damon Dash Butler” raked in an estimated $100 million, putting Daniels among the few African-American filmmakers to score such a triumph. The lawyer said Daniels treated Dash’s generosity like a running tab at a bar, and that he repeatedly vowed to make good on the cash infusions. Fed up with Daniels’ broken promises, Dash finally had no alternative but to take legal action and filed the suit in Manhattan Su-

preme Court, Bhushan said. Although Dash did get producer credit on some of Daniels’ early films, like the 2004 flick “The Woodsman” starring Kevin Bacon and the 2005 crime thriller “Shadowboxer” starring Cuba Gooding and Helen Mirren, he says he was not compensated for the work. Dash’s name is missing entirely from the roster of producers in the later films. In addition to Daniels, Dash is also suing Simone Sheffield of Canyon Entertainment, who was a producer of “Shadowboxer.” He wants $1 million from her. Dash, who made a fortune after founding Roc-Afella Records with Jay Z — and then selling his share to the rapper — has been the target of a series of lawsuits in recent years for not paying his bills, including one from a woman who rented her Putnam County home to Dash for a year.

Damon Dash Files $25 Million Suit Against Director Lee Daniels

By Barbara Ross Hip-hop mogul Damon Dash has hit Hollywood director Lee Daniels with a $25 million lawsuit charging the filmmaker stiffed him on investments he made in his flicks. Dash, who has blown through a $50 million fortune and is reported to be deeply in debt, claims Daniels owes him money on a half-dozen films, including “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “Precious” and “The Paperboy.” He also charged that Daniels cheated him out of executive producer credits on the movies. “He never received money that Mr. Daniels promised him,” said Natraj Bhushan, Dash’s lawyer. Bhushan said Dash pumped at least $2 million into Daniels’ films and got nothing in return despite the box-office success the movies generated. “The

By Ryan Pearson LOS ANGELES -- After five decades in show business, the man who shaped Motown with instantly recognizable hits like "My Girl" and "Tears of a Clown" says he can't stop writing. Smokey Robinson says he scribbles down lyrics on a pad or leaves a fragment of a tune on his own voice mail whenever inspiration hits. "I write on the plane, on the bus, on the train, I write in the bathroom," Robinson said in an interview. "I do have a bunch of songs that I'm very anxious to record." But you won't hear any of that material on his latest album, "Smokey & Friends." The collection of Robinson tunes pairs the legendary singer-songwriter with Elton John, Mary J. Blige, James Taylor, CeeLo Green, Miguel, Steven Tyler and more. Robinson, who is on a U.S. tour, talked to The Associated Press about his duets collaborators and his love of being on the road. On "Smokey & Friends," Robinson sang "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" in-studio with longtime friend Steven Tyler, while the other tracks were pieced together electronically from separate recording sessions. Each collaborator picked a favorite song

Smokey Robinson written by Robinson. Elton John, a Robinson friend for three decades, chose "The Tracks of My Tears," first recorded by the Miracles in 1965. "When we're around each other, we have a great time. Neither one of us is from affluency," Robinson said of John. "So when you come up like that and your dream is to be in show business or to sing or play and you get the chance to really do it and earn your living, and it's your life it's a wonderful thing." Robinson, 74, has been performing for over five decades and won’t be stopping anytime soon. He gets a spark of energy from see-

ing parents in the audience holding infants. “The first time I saw those people, they were on their parents’ laps. There’s everybody there from 6 months to 100, and they’re of all races,” he said. “I’m not going to get that anywhere else. I’m not going to get that same feeling, that same vibe, that same energy, anywhere else.” There’s no after-party after each two-hour show nowadays, though. “That was the party for me. I’m going to my hotel now. I’m going to watch some TV until I wind down and go to sleep. But it is a party,” he said. “That’s why I still do it.”

The internship was only for five weeks this year and that may have been a disadvantage to getting ‘connected’. Once the interns got comfortable and adjusted to their work sight, the program ended. We will start earlier next year and give the students an eight week internship.” The program included two workshops for the interns that would equip them for a work sight and in life. The first workshop presented was ‘Anger Management’ by a certified anger management facilitator. “There are so many angry people and workplace violence due to angry employees or clients, we wanted to prepare the interns on appropriate responses and insight into

what may cause people to be angry,” stated Bedford Pinkard. The Oxnard Main Library was the scene for the culmination of the program for 2014 and the second and last workshop. The workshop consisted of some parting advice from two speakers on Thursday, August 20. Ms. Veronica Allen, a ten year Ventura County Community College District employee, told the interns how she rode a bike to her interview. She told the students, “I didn’t have a reliable car so I rode my bike and changed clothes in the bathroom and went to my interview.” Needless to say, Ms. Allen got the job! Continuing, she spoke about her success as an employee and how her mentor encouraged her to

excel. She stated she listened to her mentor and took advantage of every opportunity provided to her by her colleagues. Ms. Allen gave the interns advice on how to be a valuable employee and told the interns, “You never know who’s watching you, so always do your best.” Mr. Crittenden Ward, Senior Vice President for Citibank, spoke on ‘Money Management’. He started by telling the interns that the time to plan how you manage money is now. “You don’t wait until you get what you consider a lot of money,” stated Ward. He stressed planning your expenditures, avoiding impulse buying and credit card debt. His many examples of individuals who made millions and are now bankrupt was an eye opener

Interns during workshop--Cameron Smith, Reyna Brown, Joseph Pinkard and Ka’sha Crawford for the interns. “Always pay yourself by saving money each time you are paid,” he said. “One thing I want you to always remember,” he said, “It’s not about how much money you make but how you manage the money you make!” The interns will be able to use these life lessons in the future. Anyone interested in being an intern for 2015 should contact the Crittenden Ward emphasizing money management with Pinkard Youth Institute at Jasmine Pinkard taking it all in. (805) 988-2426,

News from the D.A. VENTURA, CA - District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced the arrest of Oxnard resident Michael McDevitt for felony grand theft and tax evasion. He is charged with seven felony counts of grand theft and two felony counts of tax evasion. The charges are the result of an investigation conducted by the District Attorney's Real Estate Fraud Unit and the Franchise Tax Board (FTB). District Attorney McDevitt operated a Gregory D. Totten loan modification company called Scovis Law Group (SLG) in Thousand Oaks, California. The SLG represented that it was an expert in the field of loan modifications. McDevitt and his agents are alleged to have made numerous false representations to victims who were promised loan modifications throughout 2010 and 2011 in return for advance fees. The collection of upfront fees for mortgage loan modifications is illegal in California. Victims received no actual services and suffered monetary losses of approximately $29,000. In addition, it is alleged that McDevitt failed to disclose $67,818 in taxable income for 2009 and failed to report $718,197 in taxable income for 2010.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On Monday, August 18, Oxnard police responded to the 700 block of Nandina Place in reference to a domestic with a handgun involved. Upon arrival, officers learned that Anthony Carbajal had been involved in an argument with the mother of his 3 year old child. Carbajal fled the residence in his car before police arrived, taking his son with him. Officers from the Oxnard Police Department Special Enforcement Unit located Carbajal driving north on Ventura Rd. and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Carbajal tried to evade officers and a 5 minute pursuit began reaching speeds of 60 mph. He led officers back to the 700 block of Nandina Place where he stopped and was taken into custody without further incident. A search of the vehicle revealed a small quantity of narcotics, ammunition and a handgun magazine. The 3 year old child was also inside the vehicle and unharmed. Carbajal was booked for battery, child endangerment, evading the police, violation of a domestic restraining order and several firearms charges. If anyone has information about this incident, they are encouraged to call the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7740.

Soul 4 II trio at Cafe Fiore, 66 S California St., in Ventura 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.

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.)

A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: 9/10/14 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E.

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.

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 $238,889.23 (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.

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 prop-

erty 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, CA09000164-14-1. 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.

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 or visit the Internet Web site, using the file number assigned to this case 13-520400. 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.

A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: 9/24/14 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E.

suance 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 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 $9,374,780.35 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary`s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier`s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the

Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee`s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder`s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714-5731965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA01000022-14. 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.

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.

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.

EPA From page 7A The civil suit was filed in federal district court last year. In February of this year, the EPA settled and a consent decree was signed for the agency to begin the process of updating its rules for petroleum refineries. In addition to the fence line data, the proposed rules include caps on emissions from storage tanks and incinerating gases through a process called flaring, which releases billowing black smoke into the air for hours at a time. They also propose mandatory updates to monitoring equipment and public health procedures. Oil refineries in particular release tens of thousands of tons of toxins into the air annually, including a known carcinogen called benzene. Places such as Richmond, California; Dearborn, Michigan; Port Arthur, Texas; Northeast Philadelphia, and many more, literally host and neighbor hundreds of the nation’s industrial plants. MORAL From page 7A how to “repeal and repent” for the legislature’s actions. More than 900 people were arrested at the state capitol for trespassing after Republicans took the governor’s mansion and both chambers of the legislature in 2012. Protesters were reacting to bills blocking Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, reducing unemployment benefits, cutting public education funds, implementing voter identification requirements and restricting abortion access. IDENTITY From page 8A misuse – you’ll have time to correct it before you kid needs to use credit. Warn your kids about the dangers of revealing personal information by phone, email, or social networking. Don’t hesitate to monitor their accounts and install parental blocking software. And remember, if they share your computer, a downloaded virus could infect your accounts as well. OVERDRAFT From page 8A an average of nearly $260 per year in overdraft and nonsufficient funds (NSF) fees. Nearly one of five consumers overdrew their checking accounts more than 10 times a year. Every dollar charged for overdraft translates into fewer available dollars once a deposit is made into the account. Even worse, many consumers are unaware of the deficiency in their funds or how often these fees were charged until after the fact. As a result, many consumers can be blindsided by a barrage of fees resulting in a devastating financial impact. The hardest-hit of consumers in these scenarios are those with low- to moderate-income. Some banks – such as Citibank, Bank of America, HBSC and a significant number of community banks – have chosen not to charge overdraft fees on debit card purchases at all. Even so, most banks continue to use overdraft fees as a lucrative revenue stream. Charlene Crowell is a communications manager with the Center for Responsible Lending.

YOUNGER From page 9A supports the functioning of your hormones and immune system, helps kidneys remove the body’s waste and promotes wound healing. • Theanine helps support better moods. Theanine is a calming extract of green tea. Clinical research indicates that it helps focus a distracted mind. • Resveratrol: a versatile antioxidant for general well-being and long-term peace of mind. Resveratrol promotes healthy circulation, prevents cholesterol oxidation and protects your entire cardiovascular system from the effects of dangerous free radicals. • Vitamin D – for when the sun isn’t as bright as it was during summer. Up to 90 percent of the vitamin D the body needs comes from sunlight, which is in much shorter supply after summer. Vitamin D is required for the regulation of the calcium and phosphorus in the body. WAR From page 11A Now let’s look at the top 10 nations with naval weapons: 1. United States 2. China 3. Russia 4. India 5. South Korea 6. France 7. Mexico 8. Taiwan 9. Turkey 10. Pakistan. As we propose to shrink back our naval power, China, Russia, Japan and India are busily increasing the size of their navies. Are you scared yet? Now let us look at the most powerful air forces in the world: 1. United States 2. Russia 3. China 4. India 5. United Kingdom 6. France 7. Germany 8. Israel 9. Australia 10. Japan. Yes, we are planning to shrink back our power here also. Russia, India, China and Japan are in a phase of bulking up their air forces. We are marching to disaster. When Ronald Reagan was elected he stated that our military was too weak to fight two major wars at the same time. He embarked on a campaign to build it up. In the end, we saw the Cold War enemy, Soviet Union, fall into oblivion. After this shrinking, proposed by the Obama Administration, it may return. It will be our fault. Unlike the song, “Live and learn as you watch your bridges burn” we won’t be living too well at all unless we stop this madness. The attempt to minimize America must be stopped! Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO, of the National Black Chamber of Commerce®. Website: www.nationalbcc.org Email: halford@nationalbcc.org BROWN From page 11A What do we tell our young men? Whether you are compliant or complaining, an elected official or a reporter, you can be harassed without consequence. There is little safety when you are confronted with out-of control “police.” Son, you can be killed anyway! The federal government gave Ferguson, Mo. a grant to purchase dash cams to be installed in police cars. They purchased the cams but they haven’t installed them. Perhaps if they had, we would have more data about the massacre of Michael Brown. African American communities have walked down this path many times before. We walked past it when Bull Connor used attack dogs to reinforce racial segregation. We walked this path for Medgar Evers, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We can call the civil rights roll and the massacres we have experienced. James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Shewerner. Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis and Michael Brown. All these folks killed in different circumstances but apparently for the same reason– for being Black and male in America. The outpouring of rage in Ferguson streets is not a riot, but an uprising. People are rising up against police brutality, rising up against the massacre of another young man. Rising up, so that hopefully another mother will not have to suffer again. Julianne Malveaux is a Washington, D.C.-based economist and writer.

Florentine Hash Skillet

Here’s a super-quick all-in-one-skillet breakfast to start your day, loaded with hash browns, spinach, egg and cheese. Active Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 10 minutes Servings: 1 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil 1/2 cup frozen hash browns or pre cooked shredded potatoes (see Note)

1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach 1 large egg Pinch of salt Pinch of freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons shred ded sharp Ched dar cheese 1. Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Layer hash browns and spinach into the pan. Crack egg on top

and sprinkle with salt, pepper and cheese. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the hash browns are starting to brown on the bottom, the egg is set and the cheese is melted, 4 to 7 minutes. Ingredient note: Shredded cooked potatoes can be found in the refrigerated produce section or dairy section of most supermarkets.

COPS From page 11A One case, Tennessee v. Garner, grew out of an incident in Memphis where a Black 8th grader was shot fleeing from a home burglary after stealing a purse. The judges said cops couldn’t shoot someone simply because they were escaping. In another case, Graham vs Connor, the judges said police have the duty to protect the public. Therefore, it’s okay to use force in apprehending violent offenders. But in the Memphis case, police would not be allowed to shoot at a non-violent offender even following the commission of a crime. Of course, personal prejudice enters the picture long before an officer pulls his or her gun. “When we ask police officers directly, ‘Who looks criminal?,’ they choose more Black faces than White faces. The more stereotypically Black a face appears, the more likely officers are to report that the face looks criminal,” according a study in Stanford’s Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. In addition, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights found that, “most white officers (95 percent) do not believe police are more likely to use physical force against blacks and other minorities than against whites in similar situations. The majority of black and other minority officers (69.5 percent) believe persons who look like them are more likely to receive physical force from police.” But Blacks are treated differently from Whites – even when they are part of the law enforcement hierarchy. As Attorney General Eric

Holder recounted before the NAACP last year, “I was stopped by a police officer while simply running to catch a movie, at night in Georgetown, in Washington, D.C. I was at the time of that last incident a federal prosecutor.” If that can happen to Eric Holder in Washington, you know what can happen to Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. George E.

Shortly after, the Pastor’s Angel Choir (small children), sang a moving rendition of “Stomp” by Kirk Franklin. Energetic, confident and spirit filled, everyone in the church to rose to their feet in praise and song, while a teen rapped in gospel cadence. Poet Jessica Kimble then took the podium, expressing through poetry and song how we must tear down the walls of expectation and rise to the higher calling of our Lord and Savior. She was followed by gospel mime dancer Shaquile Read, who through her expressions and movements proved what many say, that people can be brought to Christ by simply watching Christ work through you. Jessica then blessed the church with another song. Reverend Torrence K. Nivens, Pastor of Evangelic Missionary Baptist Church, then explained the theme of the annual youth day, reiterating the extreme faith challenge that our youth face today. He then yielded the pulpit, introducing Pastor Steve Perez of Fountain of Life Apostolic Church, in Ventura. Pastor Perez preached from Matthew 14:30-31, emphasizing that all can call out to the Lord when distressed. He emphasized the need for our children in high schools, colleges and even adults in the workplace to have faith when face with adversity. Such times we can call on Jesus, thus demonstrating our faith. The Youth Department Director, Sister Terrina Price, gave closing remarks, thanking the Pastor’s Angel Choir, visitors, and all the volunteers who worked diligently to make the annual youth day a success.

EVANGELISTIC From page 15A themselves of fire, videotaping the episode, believing that they can quickly rinse themselves off and be okay. Wrong. This activity has quickly killed several people over the years. In view of the zany dares and challenges facing today’s youth, the theme of the Annual Youth Day was: “EVANGELISTIC MISSIONARY CHURCH HAS ISSUED AN EXTREME FAITH CHALLENGE TO YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS. YOU’VE BEEN CALLED OUT! WE DARE YOU TO TRUST JESUS!” The service began with wonderful selections by the Evangelistic Missionary Baptist Church Devotion Team. The entire congregation and visitors were then challenged to have and keep faith in God and Jesus Christ.
