Family Demands Answers in Hanging Death The St. Louis County NAACP is joining the McKinnies family in the call for transparency and justice regarding the murder of Danye Jones. “There’s too many unanswered questions” said John Gaskin III, St. Louis County NAACP President. “We support Mrs. McKinnies call for justice and transparency in the death of her son.” FERGUSON, MO — As the nation moves into the Holiday season, it’s been a brutal eight-weeks since that dreadful day when Ferguson-based activist Melissa McKinnies found her son Danye Jones hanging dead from a tree in her yard; eight weeks with no answer from the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office regarding the cause of death. While reports from police say the death was reported as a “suicide,” McKinnies says no, it was a “lynching.” She believes that she and other activists who have protested police brutality, including the deaths of Michael Brown Jr., and Freddie Gray in Baltimore, have been targeted and monitored not only by racists and White Nationalists, but also agencies within the US government. She believes there was foul play in the death of her son and is calling on transparency by police. “My son was murdered, point blank,” said McKinnies. “We are demanding the Medical Examiner’s office to release its findings and demanding police investigate his death as a murder,” she added. The St. Louis County NAACP is joining the McKinnies family in the call for transparency and justice regarding the murder of Danye Jones. “There’s too many unanswered questions that we are demanding answers to,” said John Gaskin III, St. Louis County NAACP President. “We support Mrs. McKinnies call for justice and transparency in the death of her son.”

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Authorities say the man suspected of gunning down a California policeman has been arrested while preparing to flee to his native Mexico. A two-day statewide manhunt ended Friday with the arrest of Gustavo Perez Arriaga at a Bakersfield, California, home. He's expected to be charged with killing Cpl. Ronil Singh, a 33-year-old Newman police officer who was shot after stopping a suspected drunken driver in the tiny San Joaquin Valley town. The case inflamed the debate over immigration because authorities say Perez Arriaga had crossed into the U.S. illegally. At a news conference, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson argued that the slaying could have been prevented if California's sanctuary law hadn't prevented local authorities from reporting Perez Arriaga _ who had gang affiliations - to immigration officials after two previous DUI arrests. But a spokesman for Gov. Jerry Brown says the law permits sharing information on dangerous gang members with federal authorities.

According to a report in the Washington Post several deaths of Ferguson Activists since 2014 have “inspired speculation that Ferguson protesters are being systematically murdered…” While the reports suggests there is no evidence yet regarding this, numerous media reports have confirmed the surveillance of Black activists by Federal agencies. Earlier this year groups Color of Change and the

Center for Constitutional Rights filed a lawsuit  against DHS and the FBI regarding information on the government’s tracking of activists involved in the Movement for Black Lives. For McKinnies, the most pressing matter right now is justice regarding her son’s death. “This is about justice! All Black lives matter and so does the life of my son!”

Cop Killing Reignites Sanctuary Law Fight By OLGA R. RODRIGUEZ and JOCELYN GECKER Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ The shooting death of a California police officer has reignited the debate over sanctuary laws, with a sheriff all but blaming the statewide immigration policy for the killing as he announced the arrest of a man living in the U.S. illegally. A two-day statewide manhunt ended Friday with the arrest of Gustavo Perez Arriaga, who came out with his hands up as a SWAT team prepared to raid a home in Bakersfield, about 200 miles (320 kilometers) southeast of where Cpl. Ronil Singh was shot in the small town of Newman before dawn Wednesday. Perez Arriaga was captured while planning to flee to his native Mexico, authorities said. Sheriff Adam Christianson, who led the investigation, blamed California's sanctuary law for preventing local authorities from reporting Perez Arriaga to U.S. immigration officials for deportation after two previous drunken driving arrests. "We can't ignore the fact that this could have been preventable," Christianson told reporters, asking why the state was "providing sanctuary for criminals (and) gang members. It's a conversation we need to have." The laws are a flashpoint between jurisdictions that say they allow immigrant communities to report crimes without fear of deportation and the Trump administration, which has vowed to crack down on such cities and states. President Donald Trump tweeted about Singh's kill-

Cop Killer was Fleeing to Mexico

ing Thursday by saying it was "time to get tough on Border Security. Build the Wall!" The immigration fight has intensified as Trump pushes for funding for a border wall that congressional Democrats oppose, forcing a partial government shutdown. Perez Arriaga crossed the border in Arizona several years ago and had worked a variety of jobs as a laborer, including at several dairies. The 33-year-old had gang affiliations and multiple Facebook pages with different names, Christianson said. An email to a sheriff's spokesman asking whether Perez Arriaga had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf wasn't returned and a phone call rang to a voicemail that was full. California's sanctuary law includes more than 800 exceptions for violent crimes and felonies and bars police from asking people about their citizenship status. Gov. Jerry Brown has said the law strikes a balance between protecting families and ensuring consequences for serious criminals. His spokesman said Friday that if the suspect was a known gang member, police could have informed federal authorities. "California law fully permits the sharing of information on dangerous gang members," spokesman Evan Westrup said. Former state Sen. Kevin de Leon, the Democrat who wrote the legislation, said it's "highly irresponsible" to blame the law for the officer's death. "The type of tone and attitude that Sheriff Christianson has taken instills fear and panic in all immigrant com-

munities" that could make people afraid to report crimes, de Leon told KNX-AM radio in Los Angeles. Cpl. Singh had pulled over a suspected drunken driver in Newman when he was fatally wounded, and he managed to fire back but didn't hit the attacker, authorities have said. A resident who saw the driver get behind the wheel flagged down Singh and heard the gunshots minutes later, Stanislaus County sheriff's Sgt. Tom Letras told the Modesto Bee newspaper. Authorities have arrested seven other people, including Perez Arriaga's brothers, 25-year-old Adrian Virgen and 34-year-old Conrado Virgen Mendoza; his girlfriend, 30-year-old Ana Leyde Cervantes; and a co-worker, 27-year-old Erik Razo Quiroz, authorities said. Three people were arrested at the home near Bakersfield. All are accused of helping Perez Arriaga, who's expected to be arraigned on charges Wednesday, authorities said. Singh, 33, was also an immigrant, coming legally from his native Fiji to fulfill his dream of becoming an officer, authorities said. Singh had a newborn son and joined the 12-officer Newman police force in 2011. Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson called him a patriot. "This is a man that loved his country. This is a man that worked hard for what he believed in. He believed in this community," the chief said at a candlelight vigil that hundreds attended Friday night to honor Singh. "Ronil loved his job," Reggie Singh told the crowd, holding his brother's 5-month-old son.

Security Guard Charged with Murder

LOS ANGELES (AP) – A store security guard was charged Monday with murder in the fatal shooting of a man he suspected of shoplifting at a Los Angeles pharmacy, prosecutors said. Donald Vincent Ciota, 28, was scheduled for arraignment Jan. 2 on the murder count and an allegation of using a firearm as a deadly and dangerous weapon. Ciota confronted Jonathan Hart on Dec. 2 inside the pharmacy on Sunset and Vine and a physical altercation ensued, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said. Ciota pulled a firearm and shot the 21-year-old in the back as he ran away, prosecutors alleged. Family attorney Carl Douglas said Hart was unarmed and was not shoplifting the night he was killed. Douglas claimed Hart was the victim of profiling because he was homeless, harassed because he was gay and “shot, because he was black.’’ The family was “heartened’’ that prosecutors charged Ciota, the attorney said at a Monday press conference. Douglas said Hart’s family is planning to file a $525 million wrongful-death suit against Walgreens. He said the family is calling for a boycott of Walgreens until the company removes armed guards from its stores. “The death of Jonathan Hart has left blood on the hands of executives of Walgreens,’’ Douglas said. Mark Geragos, Ciota’s attorney, said he believed his client will be vindicated. “There is no way in the world this should be a murder case,’’ Geragos told reporters. “If this were a police officer, they would be lauding him let alone filing murder charges. It’s ridiculous. He was assaulted, he defended himself.’’ Walgreens said it continues to cooperate with authorities and has extended its condolences to Hart’s family. “We operate in thousands of communities and neighborhoods across the nation and the suggestion that we would inappropriately serve any community is simply false,’’ the company said in a statement. Ciota’s bail was set at $3 million. If convicted as charged, he faces a maximum sentence of 50 years to life in prison.

Farm Bill Includes Millions for Black Farmers & Rural Communities of Color

Congressman Cedric L. Richmond represents the 2nd District of Louisiana, which includes parts of New Orleans and Baton Rouge. He is also the chair of the 48-member, bicameral, bipartisan Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), which was established in 1971.

By Congressman Cedric L. Richmond (D-LA-02) Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus In 1986, on her award-winning “Control” album, singer-songwriter Janet Jackson asked: “What have you done for me lately?” This is a question the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is asked a lot. Well, here’s our latest answer to that question: Since its founding in 1971, the CBC has used the legislative process to right historic wrongs and to give a voice to the voiceless, and that’s exactly what we did in the $867 billion Farm Bill that passed Congress, which includes millions for HBCUs, black farmers, and rural communities of color. As a result of the CBC’s efforts, 19 historically black land-grant universities will now get millions of dollars that states have been denying them for years. According to federal law, states are required to match federal funding dollar-for-dollar for land-grant universities, but many HBCUs have not been getting what they are owed. In fact, a 2013 report by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities found that from 2010-12, 61% of the historically black land-grant universities did not receive 100% of the one-to-one matching funds from their respective states. Now states are required to report to Congress how much funding they’re providing to both historically black landgrants and their predominantly white peers. This is something the CBC has been fighting for for over two decades. In addition to this new reporting requirement, at least three of these institutions will get a research center, called a “Center of Excellence”, that will allow them to lead the nation in research on food insecurity issues that affect African Americans in both rural and urban communities. It’s no secret that a lot of low-income, black communities are food deserts – meaning that there’s no place for the people who live in these communities to get fresh fruits and vegetables. The hope is that the research coming out of these Centers of Excellence will help address this issue and others. Finally, the 19 historically black land-grant universities will get at least $2 million in additional federal funding for scholarships that they can use to attract new students. This funding will come from the $80 million scholarship program ($40 million in mandatory funding and $40 million in discretionary funding) that the CBC fought to get included in the Farm Bill.   When I first came to Congress, the CBC had just helped thousands of black farmers win a billion-dollar settlement against the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for discriminating against them for federal farm loans. It took work to get that settlement and it took more

work to make sure that settlement was paid out. But the CBC’s fight for black farmers continues. As a result of the CBC’s efforts, black farmers will now be able to get the training and resources they need to better run their farms through USDA’s  Farming Opportunities Training and Outreach Program (FOTO), a program that is a combination of the USDA’s Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program and the Outreach and Assistance for Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers and Veteran Farmers and Ranchers, the latter of which provides grants to organizations that work with farmers of color and farmers who are veterans. The combined FOTO program will get $50 million in federal funding, a $20 million increase from previous years.  As a result of the CBC efforts, black farmers will also be able to more easily pass their farms on to their families.  Some estimates show that 60% of land owned by African-Americans in the United States is heirs’ property, which is property that is passed down without a will or transfer of title. Before now, owners of heirs’ property were unable to get the credentials that are required to access USDA programs that could help them resolve heirs’ property issues. The CBC fought to address this contradiction in the Farm Bill. Finally, because of issues that black farmers experience both within and outside of USDA, the CBC fought to include a provision in the Farm Bill that protects the Department’s Civil Rights Division from reorganization and political interference.  Specifically, the provision prevents the Division from implementing actions, policies, or decision documents until a civil rights analysis is conducted by the Department on how well the Division processes and resolves civil rights complaints.  This analysis is necessary to protect the civil rights of USDA employees, contractors, and beneficiaries (e.g. black farmers). My last day as CBC  chair is Wednesday, January 2. Members of the CBC can’t be chair for more than one Congress so I’ll be passing the torch on to Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA-37) who I’m confident will take the CBC to higher heights. For me, chairing the CBC has been an opportunity of a lifetime. But the thing I’m most proud of is this: Despite a White House and Congress that was hostile to bettering the lives of African Americans, the CBC was still able to get a lot done, and the policies and programs included in the Farm Bill is just one of many examples. Happy holidays to you and your family.

Thankful for Historic Anti-Lynching Bill

“History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again,” Booker said as he thanked the Senators who agreed in a historic moment to stand up as one and make lynching a federal crime. By Stacy M. Brown NNPA Newswire Correspondent
@StacyBrownMedia Cory Booker was so moved by the unanimous passage of a historic – and long overdue – bill to make lynching a federal crime that he was stirred to quote Maya Angelou. “History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again,” Booker said as he thanked the Senators who agreed in a historic moment to stand up as one and make lynching a federal crime. The bill would require an enhanced sentence for those who commit such crimes and judges would now be able to hand down life sentences to perpetrators. “Gratitude,” Booker said as earlier, the New Jersey Democratic Senator joined with California Democrat Ka-

mala Harris in seeking the Senate’s support. Introduced to the Senate in June, the legislation still needs House approval and, of course, the signature of President Donald Trump. Reportedly, there have been 200 previous attempts over the past century to pass similar legislation, but each had failed to this point. Between 1890 and 1952 in the United States, seven presidents petitioned Congress to end lynching, reads language in the bill. The bill defines a person guilty of lynching as “willfully, acting as part of any collection of people, assembled for the purpose and with the intention of … (causing) death to any person.”

Between 1882 and 1968, the NAACP recorded 4,743 lynchings, 3,446 of which included victims who were black. In all, 73 percent of the people lynched were black, but the NAACP said not all lynchings were recorded at the time. “Lynching is a dark and despicable aspect of our nation’s history,” said Senator Harris, who along with Booker are the center of swirling speculation about a 2020 presidential run. “We must acknowledge that fact, lest we repeat it,” she said. As racial tension grew in the late 19th century, mostly in the South, lynchings became a popular way of resolving the anger whites had toward newly freed slaves in the middle of general economic problems. However, Newsweek reported that 27 percent – or 1,297 of the 4,743 total number of people lynched from 1882 to 1968 – were white. The NCAAP said many whites were lynched in retaliation for aiding blacks, expressing anti-lynching sentiments or committing domestic crimes. “This has been a long arc, a painful history and a shameful history in this body,” Booker said. “At the height of lynchings across this country, affecting thousands of people, this body did not act to make that a federal crime... at least now, the United States Senate has acted. One hundred senators, no objections,” he said. Just one day before the Senate passed the anti-lynching legislation, President Donald Trump signed “The First Step Act,” a bill that provides a measure of criminal justice reform. Booker co-sponsored The First Step Act. He appeared on the “Black Eagle” Joe Madison’s Sirius XM Radio Show to talk about that bill and to slow some of the rhetoric that it was a complete criminal justice reform overhaul. “I just want everybody to know it is just a first step and I know there will be some people heralding it as the reform of the criminal justice system. That’s a little a wrong

and it’s a lot wrong and even offensive because we have a lot more work to do,” Booker said. “But this bill, think of it as doing about three major things: one is a lot of sentencing reform, giving judges more flexibility to not go around the mandatory minimum sentencing for low-level drug offenders, correcting one of the biggest disgraces around the crack cocaine powder cocaine disparity,” he said. The bill makes that retroactive, which means about 2,660 people, 90 percent of whom are black will now find justice and have pathways to liberation after the wallowing in jail for years, disproportionately and wrongly because of what was in effect a racist policy, Booker said. “It does a lot on the sentencing reform. Then it changes a lot of things inside prison that are just outrageous, from effectively ending juvenile solitary confinement on the federal level; ending the shackling of pregnant women and, when they’re in prison, even just like basic acts of dignity,” he said. The legislation also ensures that a woman’s feminine hygiene products are made available free to women in prison and the bill helps to prepare those who are leaving jail. “With allowing for everything from re-entry programs and efforts to helping people earn time, shave off months and years to help them, because if they’re participating in programs that will empower them when they get out,” Booker said. “And the fact the good time credit fix alone by making it a fairer system is going to help get rid of 33,000 years in prison alone with what they’re doing.  “This is going to help a lot of people get pathways to liberation, sooner pathways to liberation immediately. It’s going to stop some awful things that go on to people in prison. “So, this is a good bill, but it is just a first step in a mile-long journey of criminal justice reforms we need to do from policing all the way through to re-entry.”

NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) – An Academy Award-winning actor is among those calling for an end to violence in a southwest Mississippi city. Larry Hooper, principal of the ninth grade school in the Natchez-Adams school district, says Jamie Foxx made the 17-second video after talking to the mother of an 18-year-old shooting victim. The Natchez Democrat reports that Foxx says it’s his “sincere hope that we stop the killing in Natchez, Missis-

sippi.” Adams County and Natchez have seen at least 13 slayings this year, up from five in 2017. Police blame killings on a cycle of retaliatory violence. Foxx won a best actor award for portraying Ray Charles in the 2004 film, “Ray.” Hooper says he became friends with Foxx after Hooper and his daughter won a trip to Los Angeles and met Foxx.

Entertainment After a Decade of Dormancy, Chaka Khan Blooms Again Wednesday, January 2, 2019

By MIKE CIDONI LENNOX AP Entertainment Writer PASADENA, Calif. (AP) – If Chaka Khan were a flower, she'd be a perennial. "Because I go dormant and then I...” Khan stops and gracefully lifts her arms together, then slowly brings her hands apart, like a tulip emerging in spring. "I've done it many, many times,” explained the singer, perhaps best known for her multimillion selling 1984 cover of Prince's "I Feel For You.” On the brink of her first new album in a decade, and, on New Year's Day, serving as grand marshal at the Rose Parade, Chaka Khan is in bloom again. After receiving the call from the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, the term "grand marshal” had the 65-year-old Khan's mind running wild. "I'll tell you what I visualized,” Khan recalled. "I imagined myself with a baton, marching in the front. `I'm leading the whole parade.' That's what I thought.” Not even close. Instead, Khan will be seated on a comfy bench in the back seat of a classic convertible, which will slowly make its way past the thousands along the 5.5-mile parade route. (The parade will also be seen by millions more on TV.) "This is all new for me,” the 65-year-old Khan commented. "I love challenges. And I love new stuff.” Khan will also open parade festivities with a performance. Publicists were unable to confirm whether the grand marshal-performer double duty is a Rose Parade first, but they did note it was the first time in recent memory. Khan said she would sing two songs: "I Feel for You,”

BAKERSFIELD NEWS OBSERVER A5

as well as "Hello Happiness," the second single from the new album. The new song is not a political statement _ unless you want it to be. "I think we need a shot of just not taking the little things so seriously,” Khan said of the "Happiness” lyrics. "Little things are important. It's about the little things, but just flow.” The new album, expected by the end of 2019, is her first since the well-received 2007 "Funk This.” So, why take such a long break between the two releases? Khan said she never stopped recording from 20082018, she simply stopped releasing material. She also took care of herself physically and made up for all those lonely years on the road by spending time with family and friends. She also needed time to pull herself together after the April 2016 passing of old friend Prince, who died of a drug overdose. About six months later, Khan entered rehab to deal with her own prescription-drug addiction. "You cover up and rethink your whole life,” Khan commented. "You've got to rethink yourself.” At last, for Khan, it is time to bloom again. And this parade, with its roses in winter, seems the perfect place for a perennial to make her return. Khan even has her regal wave ready the masses. "It's just that,” she said, raising her arm, cupping her hand and moving it back and forth ever so slightly. "You use as little energy as necessary. You know, the Queen is very stingy with her energy.”

‘Aquaman’ Rules & Others See a Post-Christmas Bump

By LINDSEY BAHR AP Film Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) – In the final weekend of 2018, “Aquaman” still led the pack at the box office, but other films like “Mary Poppins Returns,” “The Mule” and “Second Act” enjoyed post-holiday bumps too, even amid an onslaught of new Christmas offerings like “Vice,” “Holmes and Watson,” “On the Basis of Sex” and the Netflix phenomenon “Bird Box.” Warner Bros. said Sunday that “Aquaman” added an estimated $51.6 million in North American ticket sales over the weekend to take first place again. Down just 24 percent from its domestic debut, the DC Comics pic, which has been No. 1 internationally for four weeks, has now grossed nearly $748.8 million worldwide. Although other films in theaters were left in “Aquaman's” wake, more than a few in the top 10 experienced an uncommon uptick in returns this weekend. Disney's

“Mary Poppins Returns” ended the weekend up an estimated 19 percent, in second place, with $28 million, while “Bumblebee,” down only five percent, settled in third with $20.5 million. Up 11 percent, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” got fourth with $18.3 million, and “The Mule,” up 24 percent, took fifth with $11.8 million. The Jennifer Lopez-led “Second Act,” which got off to a slow start last weekend, also found itself up 11 percent, with $7.2 million in seventh place. But the biggest bump of all came for Disney's “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” which was up nearly 40 percent in its sixth weekend in theaters, with $6.5 million. “There is a bit of a lull on the weekend leading into Christmas. People are busy and distracted,” said Comscore's senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “But the weekend after, most of these films in the top 10 got a bounce.” This so-called “catch-up” weekend made it a little difficult for the Christmas newcomers to make a huge impact, however, especially when the big wide-releases this time were either politically charged (the Dick Cheney movie “Vice”) or poorly reviewed ("Holmes and Watson,” which is in the single digits on Rotten Tomatoes and got a deathly D+ CinemaScore). Annapurna's “Vice,” starring Christian Bale as the former Vice President, came out on top for the new films, grossing $7.8 million from the weekend and $17.7 million since its Christmas opening.

Michael Jackson’s Mother, Katherine Jackson Gravely Ill

Katherine Jackson (Photo source: Facebook.com)

By Stacy M. Brown NNPA Newswire Correspondent
@StacyBrownMedia Katherine Jackson, the matriarch of the famed Jackson family, is reportedly gravely ill, with family members already fighting over her share of the late Michael Jackson’s estate. Outlets like Radar Online, the National Enquirer and even Atlanta Black Star have reported that Jackson, 88, is facing brain surgery. Previously, the outlets reported that Jackson has had several strokes and other ailments that have left her wheelchair-bound and dependent upon caretakers. The latest reports also suggest that several of Jackson’s children have engaged in a fierce battle to control their mother’s share of the late King of Pop’s vast estate – valued at more than $1 billion. “Now everybody in the family is jockeying for position!” a source told the National Enquirer. Although a rep denied it, two family insiders claimed the great-grandmother has suffered from excruciating headaches, leading to a hospital visit in late summer, the tabloid reported. “Katherine is in dire condition,” another source told RadarOnline.com. “Now everybody in the family is jockeying for position.” “Her doctor thought she had a stroke,” another unnamed source – described as an insider – told Radar. According to another source, Katherine remained hospitalized for about a week. “More tests were conducted to see if her condition might be something even more serious – like a brain tumor,”

the source said. The family insider said doctors discovered a golf ballsized growth on Katherine’s brain and declared she must undergo surgery as soon as possible. While some doubt the veracity of unnamed sources, several members of the Jackson family are well-known for speaking off the record and requesting anonymity. Michael Jackson, who died in 2009, provided stories about himself and his family to the National Enquirer, according to his former publicist and others around the Jacksons. Earlier this year, family patriarch Joseph Jackson died at the age of 89 after a bout with cancer. Multiple outlets had reported that Joseph had been alienated from the family after he publicly tried to cash in on Michael Jackson’s 2009 death by employing look-a-likes and holding press conferences to push new music and other material while the family mourned the “Thriller” singer. Battles over the King of Pop’s fortune reportedly began moments after he was pronounced dead, with Katherine, Latoya and others searching his Los Angeles home and beseeching Jackson’s former nanny to tell them where cash may have been stashed inside. Now, sources have told news outlets that Katherine’s children are elbowing each other to ensure they get their slice of the pie before — and after — Katherine dies. She currently pays out a combined $37,000 a month to daughters La Toya, 62, and Rebbie, 68, a source told Radar. Katherine also forks out $12,000 to son Jermaine, 64, and nearly $10,000 to pay the rent for some of Jermaine’s and Randy’s children. “Some of those people want her to live so they can stay on the gravy train,” a source told the tabloid. “Others would like to see her go, thinking they’ll get even more from her estate!” Born in Barbour County, Alabama, on May 4, 1930, Katherine and Joseph married in 1949 and had 10 children together including superstars Michael and Janet. A musician and singer, Katherine, along with Joseph, encouraged the family to pursue a career in music. She’s made very few recent public appearances – once at her grandson’s concert in Los Angeles; later at another show featuring one of her granddaughters and at Joseph Jackson’s funeral in August. Katherine and Joseph Jackson had nearly 30 grandchildren and, despite varying media reports, the two never divorced.

Chris Brown Charged with Monkey-Related Misdemeanors LOS ANGELES (AP) – Chris Brown has been charged with monkey-related misdemeanors. The Los Angeles city attorney’s office confirms Thursday that the 29-year-old singer was charged last week with two counts stemming from his possession of a pet capuchin monkey without a permit. Brown posted a picture to his 44 million Instagram followers in January showing his 3-year-old daughter, Royalty, cuddling with the monkey, named Fiji. California fish and wildlife agents took the monkey away soon after. Brown is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 6. An after-hours email seeking comment from his attorney Mark Geragos was not immediately returned. Brown has been in repeated legal trouble since pleading guilty to the felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed his probation in that case in 2015.

Golden Globe Awards this coming Sunday, the film earned mixed reviews from critics and a C+ CinemaScore from audiences. “That a movie with that subject matter can ride a wave to sixth place is really indicative of how interested people are in this movie,” Dergarabedian said. “This is required viewing for anyone studying the awards season race.” Driven by the star-power of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, “Holmes and Watson” managed to take in $7.3 million despite the negative audience and critic reviews. The Sony film has grossed $19.7 million since Christmas Day. And in limited release, the Ruth Bader Ginsburg film “On the Basis of Sex” starring Felicity Jones grossed $690,000 from 33 locations, for a total of $1.5 million since its debut. The Laurel and Hardy film “Stan & Ollie,” also with Reilly, opened on five screens to $79,674,” and “Destroyer,” with Nicole Kidman, earned $58,472 from three locations. The box office year as a whole is barreling toward a record $11.9 billion in returns, as time runs out on 2018, although final numbers won't be in from all the studios until mid-week. “This is the perfect way to end a record box office year,” Dergarabedian said. “This weekend represented everything that this year was about: Diversity, escapism and the movie-going experience in the theater, once again proving that the movie theater can take on all competition and come out a winner.” Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic fig-

ures will be released Monday. 1. "Aquaman,” $51.6 million $85.4 million international). 2. "Mary Poppins Returns,” $28 million ($28.9 million international). 3.

Delano Youth Come Together to Fight for Justice for 7 Year Old By Marco Rodriguez South Kern Sol The Delano community organized a vigil and fought for justice Friday at a local park in honor of seven-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin, a Guatemalan girl who died in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody. Jakelin and her father Nery Gilberto Caal Cuuz escaped the treacherous living conditions of Guatemala and were seeking asylum in the U.S., along with other Central American migrants. The caravan with Jakelin and her father eventually reached the U.S. border on Dec. 6. On Dec. 7, the migrants were spotted by border patrol and received health screenings. Jakelin was in good health, according to CNN. Shortly after, Jakelin became ill. She received medical attention and was transferred to the nearest children’s hospital where she was pronounced dead the next morning. People in Delano were outraged after hearing of Jakelin’s death. They were furious but also compassionate. Young community members of Delano lit candles for the unjust death of Jakelin Caal Maquin. “If something happens that you don’t think is right, voice the injustice,” Delano city councilman Bryan Osorio said to a crowd of young people honoring the seven year old. While this tragedy not only shatters one family, it also brings chills through the spines of many in the Central Valley, where an abundance of undocumented people search for a better life, just as Jakelin did. “I think the community should be concerned about this because we never know who it could happen to, as we saw earlier this year,” Osorio said. “We didn’t think ICE would be involved in an event that implicated the lives of two immigrant parents.” “Just to remind the people that this is not something normal,” Osorio continued. “This is something that could happen to anyone, being a predominantly immigrant community.” Bakersfield College student Hector Jimenez helped organize the event to raise awareness in his community. “Jakelin’s journey is Delano’s journey,” he said. “When you look around Delano, you can’t deny the fact that we have a huge population of undocumented people and that’s often something that gets overlooked.” “We need to be aware that Delano has a cultural rich history in organizing Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, and all of those people planted the roots for change, and

it’s up to us to water the seeds and to make the change happen.” It is essential for some families to seek asylum and escape the troubling conditions of their home country, said Elizabeth Meza, a youth who attending the vigil. “What pushes someone to actually leave their family behind — leave their children behind — cross the border knowing that they might die, I learned that they all left their native land because they were in search for a better

life,” Meza said. “Whether there was too much corruption, whether they didn’t know if they were going to eat the next day or whether they just didn’t feel safe, people go through this journey to find a better life as Jakelin and her dad did so.” The U.S. border is more than the physical wall or structure, said Angelica Rodriguez, a member of Loud 4 Tomorrow.

“We need to recognize how physically and emotionally draining and violent the border is,” she said. “We need to see it as a death cape whose function is to kill.” The death of Jakelin Caal Maquin didn’t stop the willpower of Delano youth. Instead, it brought them together to raise awareness. The youth said they are determined to create a change. Osorio said, “Jakelin didn’t make it but her story did.”
