Candidates for L.A. mayor ■ There are four so far, so take your pick If diversity is what you crave in politics, you have it in this election. In the four candidates who will appear at the OurWeekly Mayoral Forum Saturday at Brookins A.M.E. Church, there is an African American, three White Americans, Jews, a gay, women and men. All but one of the candidates has a sizable track record in politics. The other is an attorney who has worked for one of the world’s largest law firms and is a former U.S. prosecutor.

BY STANLEY O. WILLIFORD OW EDITOR

You can call her “Valley girl” if you like, because Wendy Greuel has lived in the San Fernando Valley all her life. She’s proud of the 10 years she spent working for Mayor Tom Bradley, where she developed her love of politics.

Wendy Greuel

“Everything that I am today was [from] that time working for Mayor Bradley,” said Greuel. “My gut of what to do and how to solve problems came from him.” From 1993 to 1997, she worked at the department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Clinton Administration, serving under Cabinet Secretary Henry Cisneros. Greuel then joined the corporate affairs department at DreamWorks Movie Studios from 1997 to 2002 [while there she met her husband-to-be, Dean Schramm], but her romance with politics never ended. Soon she was back in city government as Councilwoman for the second district in the northeast portion of the Valley. She took office in April 2002, and served on the Council for seven years, during which time she chaired both the transportation and the audit committees, and served on the budget committee. Since 2009, Greuel has succeeded Laura Chick as city controller, a critical position as auditor and general accountant of the city budget. As controller, she’s charged with watching over the city’s finances, reign-

ing in unnecessary spending and eliminating government waste. Ask her what she sees as the city’s major problem, Greuel quickly answers “jobs and economic development.” “Many of the challenges that the city faces—which are revenue and expenditure problems as to how you balance your budget—relate to how you create a job,” she said. “Like Father Greg Boyle [executive director of Homeboy Industries] says, ‘There’s nothing that stops a bullet like a job.’ If someone has a job, they’re going to be able to go out and provide for their family; they’re going to be able to buy things which, of course, means we have more revenue in the city, and we’re able to go out and buy things for the residents of Los Angeles.” Greuel says working with Bradley she learned to encourage small businesses. “It was about providing them the resources,” she says. “So that began my journey to address that. We did business tax

Eric Garcetti

reform—everything from cutting business taxes across the board 15 percent; small businesses with gross receipts of a $100,000 or less no longer have to pay business taxes in the city of Los Angeles.” Greuel’s effort, according to her biography on smarttvoter.com, “eliminated the business tax for more than 60 percent of the city’s businesses and made the tax system more equitable with neighboring jurisdictions. The reforms have saved Los Angeles businesses nearly $100 million since their inception.” In her three and a half years as controller, Greuel has sounded the alarm on all kinds of governmental laxity and financial abuse. One of the most startling concerned her release of an audit showing that millions of gallons of fuel had been consumed at city fueling sites with no record of where it was going. It meant that $7 million worth of gasoline was missing and had not been accounted for. *** Eric Garcetti is the embodiment of diversity. He’s studied in Europe, and worked in Africa and Burma. He has a district that includes enclaves of Latinos, Filipinos, Armenians, Thais and others. He has lived

2 - July 2009 Sept. 20 - July Sept. 26, 9,2012

in the Valley, but now lives in Silver Lake. His grandparents and great-grandparents grew up in East Los Angeles, but his father grew up in South Los Angeles. He has Russian-Jewish, Mexican-Italian and Irish blood running through his veins. “You can plop me down anywhere in this 4-million-person metropolis, and I have a personal and intense connection,” Garcetti likes to say. Garcetti speaks Spanish, and practices Judaism. Aside from being a professor, he’s also a Jazz pianist and, like his dad, a photographer. Even though Garcetti’s dad, Gil, served 32 years in the city’s district attorney’s office—two terms as district attorney—Garcetti says he had no early desire to be in politics. “People assume I grew up in politics, but my dad didn’t run for district attorney until the year I graduated from college,” he says. “The same year I won the Rhodes Scholarship is the year he won. At elementary, junior high, high school I was just some anonymous kid in Los Angeles.” Garcetti spent his undergraduate years at Columbia University, and he directed a group called Black Men for Anita Hill. The group’s purpose was to bring together African American professors in defense of the embattled

Jan Perry

African American Oklahoma University law professor who had charged during Senate Judiciary Confirmation hearings that Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her when he was her supervisor at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission. However, the Senate went on to confirm Thomas as the second African American justice of the Supreme Court, succeeding Thurgood Marshall. While at Columbia, Garcetti met and befriended Ben Jealous, now president of the NAACP. Jealous, a Rhodes Scholar, encouraged Garcetti to apply for the scholarship, which he was awarded on his second try. Garcetti has served four terms as councilman for the 13th District, the most he can serve. In March 2013, another councilperson will be voted in to take his seat, and Garcetti is hoping to be well on his way to becoming mayor during the same election. (More than likely, no one will get 50 percent of the vote, so there will be a runoff election.) It may be due to his own extensive travels that Garcetti views Los Angeles as “the most global city.” “Los Angeles is the most diverse collection of

human beings that’s ever been assembled in history,” he says. “If you look at the number of countries and ethnicities and languages—people come from all across America, all across the world. I would say it is the most global city we’ve ever experienced. But it also is a place where people understand neighborhood better than anywhere else.” Garcetti says he wants to get the city back on track, something he feels he can do as mayor. Like most candidates, he sees jobs and the economy as the greatest challenges. “I think we, right now, face the toughest economic climate in my lifetime in Los Angeles, and our No. 1 challenge is getting people back to work. In all communities, in all neighborhoods.” His formula for restoring business is to cut the red tape, including getting rid of the city’s business tax, and use government assistance—economic development money, tax credits—to support key industries that are going to grow. *** Jan Perry is all about building, and she has the resume to show for it. She has been a mover and shaker behind the Staple Center, L.A. Live, the Nokia, and the JW Marriott, which were all in the down-

Kevin James

town portion of her 9th District. Building means jobs, and Perry claims 90,000 over the past 10 years. So it is not surprising that she is a big supporter of building the Farmers Field football stadium downtown. “One of the reasons I’m excited about the possibility of a stadium is because it will bring 20,000 new jobs,” she says. Perry has also been the force behind establishing the Downtown Women’s Center, a home for elderly, homeless women downtown, the Dunbar Village, Somerville I and II apartments, a new City Hall at 43rd and Central Avenue (“a $12-million environmentally friendly building”) new grocery stores at 20th and Central and Adams and Central. And she expresses pride in such 9th District projects as the Augustus Hawkins Wetland Park and the South Los Angeles Wetland Park. “Right now I’m building a project on Vermont (multigenerational housing for grandparents caring for their grandchildren), the first of its kind,” she

— THIS IS THE FOURTH IN A SERIES OF OCCASIONAL STORIES ON LATINOS WHO SUPPORT BARACK OBAMA —

Latino leaders meet with a top adviser to the president ■ Valerie Jarrett drops by two other campaign offices BY STANLEY O. WILLIFORD OW EDITOR

Senior Democratic Strategist Valerie Jarrett swooped into town on a hot summer’s Friday last week to meet with prominent Latino leaders and volunteers behind the Obama-Biden campaign at the Organizing for America Southeast Los Angeles office, as well as volunteers at offices on Crenshaw Boulevard and in Santa Monica. One report estimated that Obama may garner as much as 68 to70 percent of the Latino vote, with Mitt Romney taking about 25 percent. Among Jarrett’s several titles are senior adviser to the president and chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls. As a friend of long-standing to the Obamas, she is also considered by some to be perhaps the most influential adviser to the president. Jarrett holds a bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and a law degree from the University of Michigan Law School. Prior to joining the Obama administration, she was the CEO of the Habitat Co., chairman of the Chicago Transit Board, commissioner of planning and development for the city of Chicago, and deputy chief of staff for Mayor Richard M. Daley and has practiced law with two private law firms. Jarrett also served as a director of corporate and

L.A. mayor from COVER STORY page 3 says. Perry came west as a teen to attend USC in 1974. She earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a master’s in public administration. In 1990, she “was offered a position as planning deputy” in the office of then-Councilman Mike Woo. Few people know that Perry speaks Spanish, which helps her with her large Spanish-speaking constituency, and a small group of immigrants credit her with establishing a large area where they can grow and sell produce. And like her mother and father, who were both mayors of a tiny suburb near Cleveland, Ohio, where she grew up, Perry wants to be mayor. After almost 12 years as councilwoman for the city’s 9th District, Perry can’t reduce her political career to one major accomplishment. But she adds: “I would say that there are a number of housing units that I have shepherded through . . . . In 2013, it will be up to 5,000. The fact that I have been able to complete projects, both large and small, that have put 90,000 people back to work I think is major.” “The Downtown Women’s Center, a beautiful

not-for-profit boards, including chairman of the board of the Chicago Stock Exchange, director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and chairman of the University of Chicago Medical Center Board of Trustees. Not every leader she was supposed to see was present, but she did field questions from labor leader Maria Elena Durazo, Los Angeles City Councilman Ed Reyes and El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero at the campaign office on 1167 E. Florence Ave. Assembly Speaker John Perez and United Farm Workers cofounder Dolores Huerta were apparently unable to attend. Durazo spoke passionately of “dreamer” youth, who though given a two-year reprieve by the president, still live under the shadow of deportation, along with their parents. Jarrett said she was happy Durazo brought up the issue. “I know all of us have had an opportunity to meet the Dream Act students,” she said. “They’re just what America is all about. They work hard. They want to serve our country. Many of them want to join the military and defend our country, putting their lives in harm’s way. They want to teach in our schools. They want to start businesses. They want to be wonderful citizens and give back to the country that they love. And so for so many of them, they’ve known no other country.” Jarrett said the president embraces and fully stands with them and wants to provide a permanent path to citizenship for them and their families. She

building that houses 77 elderly homeless women. It’s such a beautiful project that people take tours just to come and see it. So there’s a lot to be proud of. I can’t nail it down to one thing. That’s just a partial list. I’ve done a lot. I mean I surprise myself sometimes.” Beside being African American, she is the only female on the City Council. Perry sees the core of the city’s problems, with its cutbacks in services and $72-million budget deficit, as being a lack of jobs. Although she is optimistic about the future, she believes the city may have to ride it out for the next two years. Perry believes her “strong sense of pragmatism, ability to reflect people’s needs for housing, or transportation or more retail in the neighborhood, more jobs and to be able to translate that into things that are deliverable. . . .” are her best qualifications for being mayor. *** Kevin James grew up in Norman, Okla., and Texas. At the University of Oklahoma, he studied accounting, and he holds a law degree from the University of Houston. In 1987, at 23 years old, he headed West to what he calls “the land of opportunity.” In 1988, he joined the huge global law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, before being hired by the U.S. Department of Justice as an assistant U.S. attor-

said what was frustrating to see was the Republicans’ unwillingness to engage on the issue of immigration reform. Los Angeles City Councilman Ed P. Reyes, who is spearheading a plan to revitalize the L.A. River in hopes of generating 19,000 jobs, wanted to know how to break down the “silos” of the federal government in order to get help with the project. “Absolutely,” said Jarrett. She said the president has been concerned about such situations, and has asked all of his cabinet to come together and figure out how they can work collaboratively and fast-track many of these large projects that “traditionally would go from one agency to another agency to another agency for review.” Rather, his desire is to have all of them do the review together to streamline the project. El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero reminded Jarrett that September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, and that in his city 50 percent of

the children were obese. In studies of 100 cities in the state. He said, El Monte ranked No. 9 in childhood obesity. He said it was part and parcel with healthcare reform and asked what could be done in the nation and in the communities to combat the problem. Jarrett spoke of the first lady’s effort along those lines reaching out to mayors and local elected officials across the country because so much of what needs to be done is at the local level. “This is not something that can be mandated from the federal level,” she said. “We have to get everybody involved.” She related a personal experience of the first lady when her daughters were very young. A nutritionist asked if she was aware of the nutritional value of what her children were eating. She said the first lady did not know. She was admonished to be aware of the children’s calorie intake, make sure that they are exercising and make the exercise fun so it’s a family activity.

ney in Los Angeles. He remained with the department for three and a half years before joining the entertainment firm of Lavely & Singer. James has been characterized as a political outsider and a gadfly with little chance of winning. He believes the fact that he has never held public office is not a major hindrance to his quest to be mayor. As a talk show host on radio stations 790 KABC and 870 KRLA, he has covered government for years and evinces a thorough knowledge of its inner workings. He points out that he is the only lawyer in the field and has a background as a prosecutor. “No one in the mayor’s race even has a business degree,” he said. The “openly gay candidate” points to his more than six years’ experience as both vice-chair and cochair of AIDS Project Los Angeles as another plus. At the time, it was the largest locally based nonprofit in the city; a $20 million a year agency. James identifies the city’s No. 1 problem as the lack of employment, and he lays most of the blame at the doorstep of city government, which he says “has run private business and small business out of Los Angeles. Our leadership in California, and more locally, in Los Angeles, has created this environment that says no to private business.” “There are two primary problems,” says James. “One is the gross receipts tax and the business tax structure in the city. The other is the permitting

process . . . , and then there is the third arm that is believed to be, and I tend to agree, a corrupt City Hall . . . what the Wall Street Journal calls the second most corrupt regional government in the country.” As proof of corruption, James cites a lack of outcry from city leaders when John Noguez, county assessor was charged with giving huge tax breaks to political supporters; the scandal involving the socalled “Gold Card Desk,” where council members were allowed to fix parking tickets for constituents, and the federal investigation of the building and safety department. He also notes the lack of affordable housing “and what this City Council has allowed to happen with some of their big-time, corporate, crony developer friends and donors” and what he sees as “a massive shift away affordable housing into what many of their favored developer friends want.” The fact that he has collected only a fraction of the funds needed to mount a credible campaign is not bothersome to him. James says most of his funds will come in after the presidential election in November, when he will gain much greater support from Republicans. What he has collected thus far has come from small grassroots contributions and he claims he doesn’t have “the debt-load that his opponents have to special interests.” “My theme is to make L.A. great again, but my vision is to make L.A. work again. Nobody thinks L.A. works. It wasn’t that long ago that people did.”

Bank robbers who flung cash in getaway attempt charged ■ Three in custody; one suspect still being sought CITY NEWS SERVICE

Criminal charges were filed against three alleged gang members accused of robbing a Bank of America branch in Canyon Country and leading sheriff ’s deputies on a wild chase on Wednesday, Sept. 12, during which stolen money was tossed from the windows of a stolen SUV in South Los Angeles. Phillip Ely, 29, of Carson; Lavelle Lee Mosley, 22, of Los Angeles; and Terion Lamarr Collins, 25, described as a transient, pleaded not guilty in San Fernando Superior Court to four counts each of second-degree robbery and one count each of kidnapping to commit another crime. Ely is also charged with evading an officer and unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle. The criminal complaint also includes allegations the robbery and kidnapping were committed “for the benefit of, at the direction of, and in association with a criminal street gang,” and that all three men personally used a handgun during those crimes. The kidnapping charge involves one of the alleged

AEG sale seen as a multibillion dollar deal

victims in the bank. The three remain jailed on more than $1 million bail each, and are due back in court Wednesday. A fourth man is still being sought. The televised chase sparked a circus-like atmosphere in South Los Angeles, as people ran into the streets in hopes of scooping up cash and crowded around deputies as two of the suspects were being arrested. The chase began shortly after 10 a.m. on Sept. 12, when four men robbed the bank in the 19000 block of Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country. Deputies began pursuing the robbers, who were in a dark Volvo SUV that officials said had been stolen in South Los Angeles, starting a chase that initially led to the Sylmar area. Sheriff ’s Capt. Mike Parker said two suspects jumped out of the vehicle when it made stops in Sylmar, one at Yarnell Street and Carol Lane, and another at Astoria Street and Foothill Boulevard. The suspect who got out at Yarnell was arrested around 1 p.m., but the second got away, according to sheriff ’s officials. The vehicle chase continued on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway and eventually onto the southbound Pasadena (110) Freeway, then onto Third Street and Alvarado Street in the Westlake district. As the driver continued into South Los Angeles, a back-seat passenger began throwing money out of the windows. Some residents scrambled into the streets to scoop up the cash while others ran after the vehicle in hopes of grabbing some of the purloined loot.

■ News not expected to hinder plans for football stadium CITY NEWS SERVICE

Anschutz Entertainment Group, the company that owns Staples Center and is the driving force behind an effort to build a professional football stadium in downtown Los Angeles announced it is being put up for sale. AEG, a subsidiary of the Anschutz Co. owned by Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz, also owns the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings and Major League Soccer champion Los Angeles Galaxy and has a stake in the Los Angeles Lakers. It also owns the L.A. Live entertainment complex in downtown Los Angeles and the O2 arena in London. “Given the success of the management team and employees in establishing AEG as one of the premier real estate development, live sports and entertainment platforms in the world, as well as the value AEG has created with the strategic assets that comprise its platform, this is an appropriate time to transition AEG to a new qualified owner,” said Cannon Y. Harvey, president of the Anschutz Co. “This process represents a unique opportunity to maximize value for all concerned and will allow us to assure that, like the Anschutz Co., the new owner will have the financial resources, commitment and vision to support AEG’s management team as it continues to grow the business of AEG and the power of its brands,” he said.

Bank of America and Chase bank announced that for a limited time they are offering enhanced relocation assistance payment for qualified homeowners who initiate a short sale. Without an offer you could be eligible to receive $2,500 - $30,000 in relocation assistance and owe nothing more on their mortgage with the sale of their property.

The driver of the SUV led authorities onto narrow streets through residential neighborhoods, at times going onto sidewalks and driving the wrong way on one-way streets. Around 11:15 a.m., the SUV got stuck on a crowded residential street, and sheriff ’s deputies swarmed the vehicle with guns drawn, dragging two suspects from it. As they made the arrests, however, dozens of residents who had been following the chase packed into the intersection, setting up a tense situation as authorities tried to get the suspects into a patrol car. Los Angeles police summoned more units to the

scene and set up a skirmish line to control the crowd. As the suspects were being driven from the scene, some people ran after the patrol car, some pounding on the car or windows. Parker told reporters sheriff’s investigators were using electronic mapping to determine where money was thrown from the vehicle to determine if any of the cash could be recovered. About $1,500 had been recovered by Thursday, authorities said. Los Angeles police Cmdr. Andy Smith told reporters the suspects likely threw the money out of the vehicle in an attempt to draw people onto the roadway to block law enforcement officers from capturing them. “I don’t know how much was taken in the bank robbery, but I think pretty much everything they had was thrown out on the streets,” Smith said.

Romney’s appearance coincided with his campaign’s release of two new television ads. In a new 30-second commercial, Romney calls for trade policies that “crack down on cheaters like China” and for opening new markets, balancing the budget, cutting the deficit, reducing spending, and having “tax policies, regulations and healthcare policies that help small business.” U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk announced that the U.S. has requested dispute settlement consultations with China at the World Trade Organization concerning China’s auto and auto parts “export base” subsidy program, which he says appears to provide export subsidies prohibited under WTO rules. In the television commercial released Monday, Romney called the request for dispute settlement consultations “too little, too late for American businesses and middle-class families.” “President Obama’s credibility on this issue has long since vanished,” Romney said. “I will not wait until the last months of my presidency to stand up to China, or do so only when votes are at stake. From day one, I will pursue a comprehensive strategy to confront China’s unfair trade practices and ensure a level playing field where our businesses can compete and win.” A second commercial, titled “Failing American Families,” cites recent Census Bureau data about the decline in median family incomes since Obama took office and discusses the ever-burgeoning national debt. “We have a moral responsibility not to spend more than we take in. We can’t keep buying and spending and passing on debts to our kids. And I’ll stop it,” Romney says in the ad. Polls have shown the Republicans far behind the Democrats with Latino voters—about 68 to 70 percent versus 25 to 26 percent. Republican strategists have no hope of overcoming that deficit but want to cut the Democrats’ lead, particularly in battleground states. The Obama campaign released a nearly twominute Internet video mocking Romney’s efforts to win support from Latinos, calling it one of his “most implausible makeovers yet.” The video shows Romney’s claim during a Republican primary debate that illegal immigrants would voluntarily leave the United States.

With the GOP trailing badly among Latino voters, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney brought his campaign to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s 33rd annual national convention in downtown Los Angeles Monday, outlining his plans for jump-starting the American economy by supporting businesses. “My plan is premised on the conviction that it is freedom that drives our economy—that free people, creating free enterprises, is what creates good jobs with good wages,” Romney said. “Government supports the job creators, but it cannot take their place.” Romney detailed five steps he would take as president to create 12 million jobs and raise salaries, including capitalizing on North American energy resources to achieve energy independence, bolstering the education system and slashing the national deficit. “I will put the federal government on a track to a balanced budget by eliminating programs that are not absolutely essential and cutting federal subsidies for things like Amtrak, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Legal Services Corporation and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities,” he said. “I like some of these things but we just can’t afford them. In fact, my test is this—is the program so critical that it is worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?” Romney also touched on the issue of immigration, saying he would prioritize controlling the borders and making the system “more simple and transparent.” He said he opposes “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants, “because amnesty will make it harder, not easier to strengthen our legal immigration system.” Several hours before Romney’s appearance, some local Hispanic elected officials lashed out at the candidate’s stances on the economy and issues impacting the Latino population. “Regardless of what Mr. Romney may choose to say in that room, the record is clear that the RomneyRyan ticket is a clear pathway back to the failed policies that caused the worst financial crisis in generations,” Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles, said. L.A. Councilman Ed Reyes added, “We know that Romney is on the wrong side of every issue that’s important to the Hispanic community.” The chamber’s convention “provides an important forum for Gov. Romney to address key economic issues that directly impact the country’s 3 million Hispanic-owned businesses,” said Nina Vaca, the chamber’s chairman of the board. Romney’s attendance “demonstrates the important role that Hispanic business plays in our national political conversation,” said Javier Palomarez, the chamber’s president and CEO.

The California Department of Education recently released the 2012 Standardized Testing and Report (STAR) results, and while the state is celebrating nine straight years of student improvement on the annual statewide mathematics and English language arts exams, it appears that even the most economically gifted African American students are not on par with their White and Asian counterparts. The data showed that statewide only 37 percent of African Americans students scored at proficient and above in English Language Arts (ELA) and only 36 percent of Black pupils scored at proficient or above in math. Even more problematic is the fact that only 56 percent of not economically disadvantaged Black students scored proficient and above on the ELA compared to 87 percent for Asians, 78 percent for Whites and 60 percent for Hispanics. The story is much the same in math. Only 42 percent of not economically disadvantaged Black students scored at proficient and above compared to 85 percent of Asians, and 66 percent each for Whites and Latinos. A look at the largest high school district in Antelope Valley, Antelope Valley Union High District, finds that again the pattern is repeated. In ELA, only 37 percent of Black ninth-graders, 32 percent of 10th-graders and 27 percent of 11th-graders performed at proficient and advanced.

“Schools continue to serve best those whom schools have always served best: the White middle and uppermiddle class.” Wanda Blanchett Of African American ninth-graders who were not economically disadvantaged, only 38 percent scored at proficient and above while 22 percent of 10thgraders and 33 percent of 11th-graders hit the mark. The math numbers were 43 percent for 10thgraders and 16 percent of 11th-graders. Black education experts agree that the situation is a complex, ongoing dilemma that is impacted by a number of factors. It is also a national phenomenon, according to Quentin Lawson, executive director of the National Alliance for Black School Educators (NABSE). Lawson points to a statement by researcher Wanda Blanchett that provides one of the most simplistic but profound reasons for discrepancies in school outcomes: “Schools continue to serve best those whom schools have always served best: the White middle and upper-middle class.” The NABSE executive director goes on to add, “As sad as it is to say in 2012, while there are similarities across all middle-class families, much of the discretion still has to do with race, culture, and social class differences. These differences continue to be a key factor in

revealing that some middle-class Blacks, as well as students from low-income families are still at the bottom of most comparative measures of progress overall. “Therefore, it suffices to say that being Black in America and the world continues to bring additional burdens that must be overcome. Although some do not want to raise issues of race or poverty in the equation during this time when we are supposed to be in an imaginary “post-racial state” in America, realistically, many people of color, including Blacks, Browns, Native Americans, some Asians and others are in the bottom rungs of life and school measures also. As has been the history of African Americans in America, Black students continue to work against the odds. Some are successful, but many still lag behind, regardless of class distinctions.” Lawson says a good analogy was seeing the Olympic sprinter with two prosthetic legs from South Africa who competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics 400-meter relay against those who ran with their biological legs. The celebrated fact is that he was finally given the chance to compete in the race against others who had advantages. Although as hard as he worked and trained for the final race, he placed behind most others at the finish line. In other words, his best or competitive effort and score lagged behind others, but what an accomplishment to at least be in the race. With motivation and determination, most likely he will continue to strive to be a competitive part of the success story. That is the plight that Black people have been facing since slavery, segregation, desegregation, and the opening of society since the Civil Rights era. George McKenna, the storied educator who turned around the academic program at LAUSD’s Washington Preparatory High School says the reason why even middle-class Black students are faring poorly on standardized testing is a complex mixture of factors. “This has been a historical dilemma for us,” said McKenna. “It comes down to what happens in the classroom. What are principals doing to improve classroom instruction in the subject areas they know the students are going to be tested on?” “There’s a lot of conversation around “why are we teaching to the test; if you already know what is going to be tested, why not teach that information?” What else should you be teaching, asks McKenna pragmatically. But the former Pasadena Unified School District superintendent does not mean that students should only be taught the test. He stressed that they should also be taught the other subjects and information in the common core curriculum. McKenna also acknowledges that the information on standardized tests come from the dominant culture in America. Since educators know what those things are. He believes Black students should be taught them. And they cannot be taught by teachers who ask students questions, and instead of waiting for the young people to produce the answers, give it themselves. McKenna also believes there is a generational deep resistance within the African American culture to embracing the dominant culture. “No other culture is as unwilling to embrace the White culture. They came here to be an American. They came over here to become Americans as defined

Here’s a look at African American people and issues making headlines throughout the country.

CALIFORNIA Major progress toward the creation of the new Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital occurred recently when the MLK hospital board named Dr. Elaine Batchlor as the institution’s new chief executive officer. Now as the hospital, still under Dr. Elaine Batchlor construction, is built, Batchlor will begin to assemble its staff—physicians, personnel and also oversee the equipping of the new facility. Scheduled for completion in 2014, the hospital will have 130 beds, including a 21-bed emergency department and a critical-care unit. It also will provide a range of healthcare and social services. Batchlor, a doctor of internal medicine and rheumatology, previously served as chief medical officer for L.A. Care, the largest public health plan in the United States.

During the day, they built hiking trails, restored campsites, and removed invasive plants before heading to base camp to prepare their own meals over an open fire, take in environmental lessons from their crew leaders and retreat to their tents for a restful sleep. The project is part of the Forest Service’s 10-year challenge to achieve specific stewardship objectives at more than 400 U.S. Forest Service sites by 2014, the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

NEW YORK DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA A new class is opening up its doors to teach Hip Hop as an after-school activity. A Plus Kids, a nonprofit agency, has added the curriculum to a variety of other courses that include radio broadcasting, music, dance, acting, fashion and photography. The multi-faceted music and arts school, which also has a Spanish division, is designed to cultivate young talent for a future in the entertainment industry. The class, taught by renown Hip Hop historian and Rap artist Sean XLG, teaches kids, teens and young adults how to rap. The class begins with an overview of Hip Hop history to educate students on how the art form was created. “In learning the origins, students will develop an appreciation and respect for the craft and the pioneers who developed Hip Hop culture,” stated Sean XLG. The class will focus on the disciplines of songwriting, vocal performance and recording.

GEORGIA The Georgia and North Carolina State Conferences of the NAACP, in conjunction with the NAACP recently held a press conference and rally to demand justice for John McNeil, an African American man who was sentenced to life in prison for defending his family and himself at his home. NAACP National President Benjamin Todd Jealous, along with NAACP State Conference presidents Edward Dubose (Ga.) and William Barber (N.C.) recently visited with McNeil in prison. In 2006, McNeil returned to his home to protect his son from Brian Epp, an armed trespasser on his property. After calling the police and firing a warning shot into the ground as Epp approached him near the backdoor of his home, McNeil shot and killed Epp, who was White. Despite the investigating officers’ conclusion that McNeil did not commit a crime, 274 days later the Cobb County district attorney charged McNeil with murder regardless of the “Castle Doctrine” that gives property owners the right to protect themselves with a weapon, without a duty to retreat, if they feel threatened on their own property. McNeil was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

ILLINOIS Fifth Third Bank Chicago and the DuSable Museum of African American History will host an exclusive free showing of a onehour documentary entitled “Whatever Happened to Idlewild?” on Sunday, Sept. 23, at the DuSable Museum in Chicago. From the 1930s through the 1960s, Idlewild was considered to be the Black mecca for African Americans. In this time of strict racial segregation, people wanted the opportunity for recreational pursuits in a setting far removed from racism and discrimination in the cities. Idlewild was one of only a few resorts in the country where African Americans were allowed to vacation and purchase property before this discrimination became illegal in 1964. This story is told by the people who actually lived it and experienced the delight of seeing up-close-andpersonal some of the greatest African American entertainers of the time, including Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Dinah Washington, B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, and others.

PENNSYLVANIA The Links Foundation Inc. recently announced that it has been selected for a $250,000 grant from Chevron in support of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education. The funds, designated to help eliminate the STEM academic achievement gap for students of color, will be dispersed over a two-year period, beginning in the fall of 2012. The grant provides vital funding to enhance one of the key programs of the Links Inc.—“STEM - ULATING Left Brain and Right Brain.” With a focus on students from the 6th to 12th grades, the program aims to enhance the current curriculum, emphasizing STEM disciplines, engineering and energy industry career readiness. The organization expects to reach approximately 1,200 students across the country with this academic enrichment. A key enhancement of the program is the incorporation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration STEM Application Content. The content includes educational and professional development, as well as teacher training tools.

After years of research, he has now written a book on the subject, “Crackback! How College Football Blindsides the Hopes of Black Coaches.” Seeking a diverse perspective on race-related issues for African American football coaches, Hill chose to co-author his book with Mark Purdy, an award-winning sports columnist for the San Jose Mercury News. Hill has spent the last 24 years studying race-related barriers for African American football coaches employed at predominantly White colleges and universities.

Practical Politics ■ Is the GOP campaign burning? BY DAVID L. HORNE, PH.D. OW CONTRIBUTOR

Very recently, in a calculated attempt to undermine the credibility of his opponent in the upcoming presidential debates, and to provide himself cover in case he suffers an ignominious defeat in them, Mitt Romney announced that he might not do well in the debates because the president was simply going to prevaricate his way through them. Really? A liar calling someone else a liar? Things that make you go hmmmm . . . . Sure, politics is not about fairness, but once again, the Romney team shows that it is the leader in utter gall. The list of Romney-Ryan prevarications in pursuit of the executive brass ring is already huge, and it is growing, as one reporter put it, “ . . . into a lie-bynight” operation. Interesting how quickly the admonitions and prohibitions of Christianity are being trampled so harshly already, and this is just the campaign. What are we to expect if they actually win? A mantra repeated at the Republican National Convention was, “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.” Ha! The truth be damned, huh? Who are you guys? Really? The three debates should really demonstrate in direct ways the true character of the two men who would be president, and the one vice-presidential debate should be immensely entertaining, to say the least. The polls that follow the debates will be the most accurate accounting up to that time of the perceptions and views of the American public. It will really be show-and-tell time, and neither candidate will be able to hide. As in all the preparations for a major title game in football or baseball—Enough talk. Let’s play the game! Since none of the debates will be traditional Lincoln-Douglas, a lot will depend on the adroitness and skill of the designated moderators. But essentially, each candidate will either know what he is talking

Beyond the Rhetoric ■ Joint-venture shams, D.C.-style BY HARRY C. ALFORD OW CONTRIBUTOR

Sometimes the best intentions can be shattered by unforeseen consequences. Such is the case with the Washington, D.C.’s Department of Small and Local Business Development. One of the missions of this department is to stimulate participation from D.C.-based business, particularly smalland minority-owned firms. It has become popular for this department to encourage minority/majority joint ventures seeking construction contracts. This sounds noble, but it could become a disaster

about or he won’t. Artful dodging will not be enough. The emperor and would-be challengers must all wear visible clothing and bring their intellectual and political A-games to the fore. The debates, for many of us, is the real core of the presidential and vice-presidential races. Mano y mano. Let as much truth be told and shown as possible, and shame the devil and the Tea Party. Remember how Ms. Engle of Nevada, and Ms. McDonnell of Delaware were each politically slain by their own voices? Bring on the debates! Here are some top examples of outright prevarications from the Romney-Ryan perch: On Medicare: Romney and Ryan have repeatedly accused President Obama of being the true threat to Medicare, not them. Ryan recently said, “You see, even with all the hidden taxes to pay for the healthcare takeover, even with new taxes on nearly a million small businesses, the planners in Washington still didn’t have enough money. They needed more. They needed hundreds of billions more. So, they just took it all away from Medicare, $716 billion funneled out of Medicare by President Obama. An obligation we have to our parents and grandparents is being sacrificed, all to pay for a new entitlement we didn’t even ask for. The greatest threat to Medicare is Obamacare, and we’re going to stop it.” Well, truth be told, President Obama did use those Medicare savings—in the form of targeted cuts in payments to providers, but did not, as Ryan said, cut benefits to seniors to pay for the healthcare law. Ryan’s budget calls for using that same $716 billion cut to finance tax cuts for wealthy Americans, and deficit reduction. But by now calling to restore that spending commitment to Medicare, Ryan and Romney, allowed to implement their plan, will simply hasten Medicare’s insolvency by many years, according to the independent Congressional Budget Office. On the U.S. credit rating: Ryan recently said (and echoed by Romney) the Obama presidency, “began with a perfect Triple-A credit rating for the United States; it ends with a downgraded America.” That’s partially true. That rating was at Triple A when Obama came in, but Standard & Poor’s downgraded the country’s sovereign debt rating in 2011 because congressional Republicans, led by Ryan,

Counting the Cost ■ Double whammy hits African Americans BY JULIANNE MALVEAUX TRICE EDNEY COLUMNIST

see PRACTICAL POLITICS page 9

We have learned that African American unemployment rates stayed level last month with an absurdly high official unemployment rate of 14.1 percent. Unemployment rates for African American men fell, while those for African American women rose. These rates are way too high and understate the extent of pain that exists in the African American community. The philosopher Albert Camus wrote, “Without work all life is rotten” because so many people value and define themselves by the work they do. Indeed, at many professional social gatherings the first, second, or third question is “What do you do?” Work seems to anchor us to stability and to the world. Too many African American people have no anchor. While President Barack Obama, Vice-President Biden and other key Democrats have acknowledged that unemployment rates are not falling quickly enough, few deal with the psychic effects that unemployment has on people. For many, it causes a malaise and a sense of absolute disconnection. Others feel disillusioned and depressed, while others use their own talent at entrepreneurship to create work where there is none, using skills to offer goods and services to their neighbors. We don’t need government data to validate the pain that many in the African American community experience; far more pain than experienced in other communities. The overall unemployment rate dropped from 8.3 to 8.1 percent with African American unemployment staying level, means some are enjoying our tepid economic recovery, while others are waiting for gains to trickle down. Unemployment data were released on Sept. 7, and the poverty data released on Sept. 12. That’s a double whammy for African Americans. Not only is the employment situation stagnant, with “real” unem-

To qualify, the minority portion has to have at least 51 percent ownership in the joint venture and must reside within the District. The majority portion must have less than 50 percent and does not have to reside within the District. That is a major flaw. The two companies come together under the formal incorporation application to the government. Bylaws governing the joint-venture arrangement explain how they are going to work on a particular bid, providing they win that bid. They present their application for CBE certification. The CBE office reviews their papers and makes a decision. Those with CBE certification will get a gift of 12 percent preference points. This gives them an advantage over other bidders. They can even bid higher than a non-certified company as long as they land within the 12 percent gift. The above advantage is enticing to those White-

owned firms living outside the District and wishing to get those plum D.C. projects, so they begin to break the rules. They contact the Department of Small and Local Business Development to get a recommended list of potential minority contractors. To some of these sneaky prime contractors, this becomes a sucker list. They begin surveying the contractors on the list and may end up with the most naive business they can find. Together they work on the Joint Venture Agreement and execute all of the needed paper work, including signature cards for the joint-venture bank account. The minority/local owner will usually declare 51 percent ownership. The out-of-town majority owner will declare the remaining 49 percent. They get certified and go after that designated bid. If they win, then all hell will break loose. Quickly, the White out-of-town firm will sit his joint-venture partner down and start dictating how things are going to be on the project. The minority partner’s signature card at the bank has disappeared. Instead of 51 percent local minority and 49 percent out-of-town

ployment rising as high as 25 percent, but new data on income and poverty suggest, again, that African Americans experience a greater burden than others in our society. The poverty rate among African Americans rose from 27.6 to 27.8 percent. Some might describe these numbers as ”not statistically significant,” but try telling that to the 200,000 more African Americans in poverty. Overall, poverty rates dropped slightly from 15.2 to 15.1 percent. This means that nearly one in six Americans experience poverty, while one in four African Americans and Hispanics experience poverty. Incomes have dropped by more than 8 percent since 2007, and again, African Americans have lost more. While household incomes fell by 1.5 percent between 2010 and 2011, African Americans incomes fell by 2.7 percent, the largest drop of any racial or ethnic group. I don’t mean to underestimate anyone’s pain. All incomes fell, but African American incomes fell most. African American incomes hit their peak in 1999 at $38,700. Today, with dollars adjusted, the amount is $32,200, the lowest level since 1997, or in more than 15 years. At the top or at the bottom, African Americans lost ground.

“For many, it causes a malaise and a sense of absolute disconnection.” In the face of this double whammy, how do we answer the Reagan question–“Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Economists have described the “misery index” as the sum of unemployment rates and poverty rates, and using that index, all of America has seen erosion in status. Still, legislation to improve both poverty and unemployment rates has been stuck in legislative gridlock, because House Republicans would rather see people suffer than to see President Obama appear successful. But for the obduracy of House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his posse, including vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan (R-Wis.),

majority, it’s now around 10 percent minority and 90 percent out-of-town majority. If the minority starts to protest he will get threatened with firing. Firing? Yes, it is like he is becoming an employee. Thus, the promising joint venture has become more like “Front and Flunky.” The bylaws are mysteriously amended and the whole agreement is breached. The leverage the front has is the bid bond for the project. The bond is in his company’s name. The minority firm has very little bonding capacity and could not have done it on his own. Thus, the front controls the whole project. He will self-perform as much of this work to himself, which makes it very profitable, plus he probably overbid the project, which adds even more profit at the expense of the District. The frustrated minority may go to the aforementioned D.C. offices. They really don’t want to hear it, as it will cause a decrease in the listed minority participation. Plus, there is too much dirty business to

Woman found burned to death in South L.A.

Vote set on DWP power rate hike

■ Name was not released

A power rate increase of more than 10 percent proposed by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is going before the full City Council for a vote. The increase was proposed in the middle of 2011, but the Council postponed voting on it until the Ratepayer Advocate, Fredrick H. Pickel, Ph.D., could provide an independent analysis of the proposal. Pickel agreed that the increase of 4.88 percent for

A woman whose body was found burning on a South Los Angeles street was the victim of a homicide, the coroner’s office announced this week. The Los Angeles Police Department has the case listed as a “death investigation,” Officer Sara Faden said. The body was found at 319 W. 94th St., near Broadway, around 9:40 p.m. Monday, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department. Someone called authorities to report that the body was burning in the street, prompting a response by firefighters and police, said Los Angeles police Lt. Andy Neiman of the Media Relations Section. The woman’s name has not been released because her relatives have not been notified, coroner’s Lt. Fred Corral said. On Tuesday, Project Islamic Hope held a candle-

PLUM Committee to review $10,000 reward offered in USC environmental plan ■ Housing, jobs, retail space on tap BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Compared to other major universities around the nation, USC puts up a significantly smaller percentage of its students in housing owned by the school. That is among the findings presented Tuesday at a hearing of the Los Angeles City Council Planning and Land Use Management Committee (PLUM), and is also some of the detail the body will need to wade through before voting on a plan by the school to revitalize the University Village retail complex through a project called The Village at USC. The project is expected to create an estimated 8,900 new jobs as part of a total of 12,000 jobs (8,000 permanent and 4,000 construction-related) to be added through the USC Specific Plan. It will also provide up to 350,000 square feet of retail serving both the USC campus and the community, including at least one grocery store, several sitdown restaurants, a food court, shops and services. A hotel is also planned for the space, and hundreds of private housing units currently occupied by students will be returned to the area’s housing pool. The PLUM Committee will meet again Oct. 9 to review the new information, receive public comments and get an update on the project’s California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) report. This environmental impact report must be completed and presented publicly before the project can move forward. At the next meeting, the committee is also expected to hear an update on the negotiations between USC and local labor unions about a project labor agreement that will determine what percentage of the jobs created will go to local residents, what type of job-training program will be established in conjunction with the redevelopment; and what assistance will be provided to small business owners within the proj-

ect development area. Finally, the next meeting will also address what kind of public benefits should be negotiated into the development agreement the city signs with USC, and the question of how this project will impact the availability of affordable housing in the area will also be examined. Community activists have continually stated their concern that USC’s plan does not include enough affordable housing to relieve the pressure of students and local residents battling for the same places to live around the campus. At its last meeting, PLUM Committee members asked staff to come back with a report on how other major universities around the nation compared. According to the planning department staff, USC houses 29.2 percent of its 16,023 undergraduate students in university-owned housing and zero percent of its graduate students. In comparison, the University of Pennsylvania houses 64 percent of its undergrads in school-owned housing; Columbia houses 95 percent of its 8,000; Harvard houses 97 percent of its 8,000 and the University of Chicago houses 66 percent of its 5,000 undergraduates in university-owned facilities. In terms of community benefit programs, while none of the development projects were exactly the same, Columbia is most comparable to USC. That university created $100 million in public benefits while USC has proposed $30 million. Harvard signed a cooperative agreement that included $11.8 million in park and street improvements, $4.7 million in educational benefits, $3.9 million in employment and life-long learning work force development. Of the universities, the USC project is by far the largest, encompassing 207 acres (8.8 million square feet), with 4,200 student beds proposed, compared to 538,000 square feet and 1,200 student/faculty beds for Harvard; and 8.8 million square feet and 500 student beds at the University of Pennsylvania.

Inglewood Unified School District hands over authority to the state ■ Brown approves $55-million loan to avoid bankruptcy BY JULIANA NORWOOD OW STAFF WRITER

The Inglewood Unified School District became the first Southland school district in nearly 20 years to lose local control over its budget, causing California Governor Jerry Brown to approve an emergency loan of $55 million to keep it from going bankrupt and implement an immediate takeover of the school district’s administration. “We will have a quality education for the city of Inglewood and the Inglewood Unified School

District. That is our goal that we will achieve by any means necessary. And if it required having a state takeover, that is what we had to do,” said Sen. Roderick Wright who carried SB 533, a bill that would allow the district to evade bankruptcy. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson released a statement saying that his office would consult with the Los Angeles County Office of Education to name an experienced administrator to get the district back on track. “The governor’s action was necessary to keep Inglewood’s public schools operating and serving students despite the district’s extreme financial difficulties,” said Torlakson.

Ex-Assemblyman arrested in bank fraud investigation

The Business Mind ■ How to keep your company from attacking you: deal in good faith

BY SHAUNE B. ARNOLD, ESQ.

■ Probation Department employee accused of masterminding four-year scheme CITY NEWS SERVICE

A former assemblyman who now works for the Los Angeles County Probation Department was arrested Tuesday on federal charges for allegedly falsely claiming to have lost thousands of dollars as an identity theft victim. Carl Washington, 47, of Los Angeles is charged with three counts each of bank fraud and making a false statement to a federally insured financial institution, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Each count carries a potential maximum of 30 years in federal prison. According to an indictment filed last week in Los Angeles federal court, Washington masterminded a four-year scheme in which he obtained credit cards and loans from banks and credit unions, racking up thousands of dollars in charges for airline tickets, hotels, restaurants, rental cars and cash advances. He then allegedly filed a police report, claiming to be the victim of identity theft and reporting that the credit cards and loans had been opened by someone unknown to him. The indictment alleges that Washington subsequently filed a copy of the bogus police report with Experian, one of the three major credit reporting agencies, in order to have the charges and past due amounts removed from his credit report.

AEG for sale from NEWS page 5 Harvey said the sale process would not disrupt AEG’s day-to-day operations. “It’s a multibillion-dollar deal,” Craig Silvers, a real estate analyst at Bricks & Mortar Capital, told the Los Angeles Times. “This is a group of trophy assets of the type that don’t come along often.” Councilwoman Jan Perry, one of the stadium’s most ardent supporters, told the Orange County Register, she didn’t think the move by AEG was a setback for the city. “Whoever comes in will have to fulfill all the obligations that AEG agreed to,” she said. “The city has been well-negotiated and well-protected.” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa issued a statement saying he was confident the sale would not disrupt the pending plan to build a football stadium adjacent to Staples Center and lure an NFL franchise to the city. “I have worked with both Philip Anschutz and (AEG President) Tim Leiweke for years to bring a football team to Los Angeles,” Villaraigosa said.

Once Experian removed the charges, Washington applied for new credit cards without disclosing his outstanding debts or the fact that he had charges and unpaid balances removed from his credit report, according to federal prosecutors. When new credit cards were issued, Washington again ran up debts worth another couple of thousand dollars and filed yet another police report, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Washington, who allegedly operated the scheme from February 2007 to August 2011, is the Probation Department’s director for intergovernmental relations and legislative affairs. A Democrat from Compton who represented Paramount, Washington began his service in the state Legislature in 1996, and was active in fighting street gangs. He was termed out in 2002 and lost a race for a Los Angeles City Council seat to Jan Perry. Prior to his legislative service, he served on the staff of former Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke. Washington’s arrest was part of a yearlong probe of alleged misconduct among Probation Department employees that has resulted in dozens of arrests, Probation Department Chief Jerry Powers said. “These recent arrests should serve as a clear message that this chief—and this probation department—will not tolerate criminal behavior by staff,” he said. “This is a law-enforcement agency, and as such we will hold ourselves to a higher standard both on and off duty.”

BUSINESS STRATEGIST

My client, Daniel, called me recently with a worried heart. He’s the majority shareholder in a small manufacturing business. The company has suffered in the current economy as the sales of their luxury product nosedived over the last few years. Fearing the worst, Daniel began to cast about for new opportunities to bring to the table. An opportunity came up for him to bring business to the company that would greatly increase revenue, and that would also allow him to make a lot of money in the process. He wanted to know how best to present this opportunity to the directors of the company, and to his fellow shareholders, and whether he needed to tell them that he stood to make money on the deal. Firstly, I commended Daniel on his genuine concern for his fellow shareholders. Very often clients call me because they really don’t want to do the right thing, and they want to know how close to the line they can skirt without getting into trouble. But not Daniel. I gave him some idea of management’s and controlling shareholders’ fiduciary duties to the company, and to minority shareholders. The management team of a company, including its directors and officers, and its controlling shareholders owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to minority shareholders, and to the company itself ?the duties would be the same if Daniel were instead the

majority member of a limited liability company?. These duties generally arise when a director, officer, or controlling shareholder is engaging in acts that compete with the company, or that takes a business opportunity away from the company. The duties also arise when the controlling shareholder seeks to sell his or her controlling interest in the company, or when they deal with insider information, especially if the company is publicly traded. ?Ask Martha Stewart if this is an issue.? The point is that a person in a position of power in a company must take care not to oppress minority shareholders, and to care for the company as well. I told Daniel that if he properly disclosed his interest in this opportunity to the directors, and to minority shareholders, he would be immune from attack and liability. However, if he failed to do so, the director and minority shareholder could actually sue him for any resulting loss to the corporation. Daniel fully disclosed his business opportunity to the directors, and to minority shareholders, and then stepped out of the picture and let the remaining directors decide whether or not to take advantage of the business opportunity that he had presented. Ultimately, the directors decided that the deal he brought to the table was in the best interest of all parties involved, and they voted to take advantage of it. The minority shareholders were notified of the directors’ decision, and the deal was consummated. Within months the company’s revenues began to rise again, and the minority shareholders hailed Daniel as a hero. © 2011. All Rights Reserved. Shaune B.

STAR report from NEWS page 6 They came over here to become Americans as defined by White people,” says McKenna, who points out that the American school system also often blames children for what they don’t bring to the classroom instead of embracing what they do bring and teaching the rest. McKenna also talks about another phenomenon that is actually the antithesis to the idea that Blacks resist embracing White culture—some Black students who are bused out of the community are often sent out “trying to get away from us . . . . But that creates its own challenges. “They are not part of the community (they’re bused into). They are seen as intruders,” notes McKenna who adds that often because they do not have transportation home Black youth who are bused out cannot stay and hang out with their friends, cannot go to school functions.” All of this paints them as outsiders. And within the school environment itself, McKenna says there is sometimes a lack of rigor in the teaching, because instructors will accept less than the best effort from Black students because they think they are doing the young person a favor. Debra Watkins, founder, president and executive director of the California Alliance of African American Educators (CAAAE) paints the why in bold colors—“I would say in a nutshell, it’s what the Kellogg Foundation and others have named it— structural racism. “That is where the system in place sometimes

deliberately and sometimes unconsciously allows for teacher bias against Black and Brown children.” Watkins, pinpoints this bias as settings with low expectations for the children, and says this is not just White teachers. Black educators are guilty of this bias as well. Watkins says these teachers don’t believe that Black kids (and Brown) can achieve at certain levels, and this causes them to interact with (the students) differently. One example of this different interaction comes from a study by the College Board on why so few Black and Brown students take advanced placement classes. Researchers found that their teachers don’t recommend taking such classes. At the opposite extreme, Watkins relates the story of a friend’s son, who was a ninth-grader taking honors classes. His school created a program called Ujima to help low-performing African American students feel better about themselves and improve academically. Her friend was livid that her son was called out of his honors classes to attend the program. Another reason Watkins sees for the lower scores of more affluent Black youth is that they are sometimes placed in an environment where they are marginalized. “The children start to internalize the belief that they can’t do well academically, and it ends up a selffulfilling prophecy.” Gwendolynne Cole, president of the High Desert Alliance of Black School Educators (HDABSE) like the other Black educators does not want to give a blanket overall reason about why Black pupils in Antelope Valley (like their peers around the country) are lagging. But she does believe Black youth have some specific and unique needs that need to be addressed. “I have to be real careful here, because I don’t

here in the school-into-prison-pipeline.” Watkins points to one final consideration to ponder. Some Black parents feel that once they enroll their children in a “better” school, the problem is solved. But a Shaker Heights Study (and subsequent book: “Black American Students in an Affluent Suburb: A Study of Academic Disengagement”) by Stanford professor John Ogbu, shows why that is a serious mistake. “Shaker Heights is a very wealthy community in Cleveland. Parents called him in to find out why their kids were doing so poorly. What he found out was that parents were turning their kids over to racist teachers who, for the most part, didn’t care about them and were treating (students) horribly,” Watkins said. Parents called the results crazy and disregarded the findings. Lawson of NABSE says it may also be instructive to consider these factors as well—(1) Black middleclass status is more tenuous and sometimes mythical. But faces the constant threat of downward mobility. (2) Hip Hop has permeated deep into the African American culture and the majority of its content is skeptical of traditional school achievement, distrustful of the traditional educative process and resistant to school achievement-oriented masculine identity. For Black youth, at every GPA, being into Hip Hop is associated with higher self-esteem, but it is also associated with more problem behaviors in school. And finally (3) the new African American family structure is evolving without the cultural guidelines and values of the past, and is rife with young people, especially males, who lack an interest in education and development of one’s self to the fullest potentials, writes researcher Searetha Smith-Collins.

Inglewood unified from NEWS page 10 Inglewood Unified’s elected school board and its superintendent will lose their decision-making authority, instead becoming an advisory board to the newly named administrator, which an aide in the state superintendent’s office said would probably be named in the next few days.

Before Gov. Brown signed SB 533 into law, in efforts to evade impending bankruptcy, the school board had begun to implement a number of budgetcutting procedures, including cutting teacher and classified employees salaries by 15 percent. The California Professional Employees, the union for the classified employees at Inglewood Unified School District are demanding that decision be reversed. “Local 2345 demands that the district rescind Resolution No. 12/2012-2013, restore the status quo prior to the resolution, and abide by all terms of the

collective-bargaining agreement currently in place between Local 2345 and the district. If the district refuses to take these actions, the union will be forced to consider pursuing all available legal remedies to vindicate its rights and the rights of its members,” stated Christopher Graeber, field representative for the Union, which represent 650 employees in the district, including support staff, custodians, office, workers, food service, instructional aides, police and maintenance workers. “The way the decision was made was improper and the district isn’t supposed to make unilateral

decisions like that without bargaining. We are also hoping to have some sort of input when the new trustee is chosen because we certainly don’t want it to be anyone who is currently directly affiliated with the district. Even if the final round of candidates goes to some sort of vote, or we have an opportunity to do some background checking and research on the person who is being put in place beforehand we would be more comfortable with that. We are hoping that the state can offer some type of assurance that our interest is being taken into account,” said Graeber on behalf of the union.

New Compton Unified School superintendent faces a rocky road ■ Budget shortfalls loom large

BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Darin Brawley has been appointed the new Superintendent of Compton Unified School District at a very tough time. He replaces interim superintendent Carmella Franco, and is the fifth person to hold the position in the last 10 years. The former superintendent of the San Bernardino County-based Adelanto Elementary District takes over the much larger Compton district (8,027 versus 24,221 student enrollment for the 2010-11 school year) at a time when Compton is in its third year of program improvement because it has not met the federal Adequate yearly progress goals. The district is also one of 188 statewide that has landed on a watch list because it may not be able to meet its financial obligations for fiscal year 2011-12, 2012-13 or 2013-14. In fact, according to documents the district filed with the state Department of Education, Compton is projecting a $15,976,664 deficit in the 2012-13 school year; a $24,456,875 short fall in 2013-14 and a $27,629,819 shortfall in 2014-15. It is one of a record-setting number of districts statewide facing the possibility of not meeting its financial obligations in the next three school years. According to State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, this represents 2.6 mil-

lion children attending financially challenged schools. Torlakson puts the blame in part on the state’s financial crisis, which has continued to force deep cuts in education spending. Prior to his appointment in Compton, Brawley spent three years as superintendent in Adelanto Elementary District, which teaches students in kindergarten to grade eight. During his tenure, five schools in the district— which predominantly serves Hispanic students with African Americans and White comprising the other two top ranking ethnicities—exited program improvement status and several received Title I top performing schools recognition and California Distinguished School awards. Additionally, Brawley, a San Bernardino native who began working with Adelanto in 2005, has served as a

by White people,” says McKenna, who points out that the American school system also often blames children for what they don’t bring to the classroom instead of embracing what they do bring and teaching the rest. McKenna also talks about another phenomenon that is actually the antithesis to the idea that Blacks resist embracing White culture—some Black students who are bused out of the community are often sent out “trying to get away from us . . . . But that creates its own challenges. “They are not part of the community (they’re bused into). They are seen as intruders,” notes McKenna who adds that often because they do not have transportation home Black youth who are bused out cannot stay and hang out with their friends, cannot go to school functions.” All of this paints them as outsiders. And within the school environment itself, McKenna says there is sometimes a lack of rigor in the teaching, because instructors will accept less than the best effort from Black students because they think they are doing the young person a favor. Debra Watkins, founder, president and executive director of the California Alliance of African American Educators (CAAAE) paints the why in bold colors—“I would say in a nutshell, it’s what the Kellogg Foundation and others have named it—structural racism. “That is where the system in place sometimes deliberately and sometimes unconsciously allows for teacher bias against Black and Brown children.” Watkins, pinpoints this bias as settings with low expectations for the children, and says this is not just White teachers. Black educators are guilty of this bias as well. Watkins says these teachers don’t believe that Black kids (and Brown) can achieve at certain levels, and this causes them to interact with (the students) differently. One example of this different interaction comes from a study by the College Board on why so few Black and Brown students take advanced placement classes. Researchers found that their teachers don’t recommend taking such classes. At the opposite extreme, Watkins relates the story of a friend’s son, who was a ninth-grader taking honors classes. His school created a program called Ujima to help low-performing African American students feel better about themselves and improve academically. Her friend was livid that her son was called out of his honors classes to attend the program. Another reason Watkins sees for the lower scores of more affluent Black youth is that they are sometimes placed in an environment where they are marginalized. “The children start to internalize the belief that they can’t do well academically, and it ends up a selffulfilling prophecy.” Gwendolynne Cole, president of the High Desert Alliance of Black School Educators (HDABSE) like the other Black educators does not want to give a blanket

Also during his tenure at Adelanto, Brawley, 47, was involved in a fight similar to one that rocked Compton Unified not long ago, where a group of parents at the district’s lowest performing school (Desert Trails Elementary School, where three-quarters of the students are unable to read and write) sought to use the 2010 “Parent Trigger” law to make changes as the school.

overall reason about why Black pupils in Antelope Valley (like their peers around the country) are lagging. But she does believe Black youth have some specific and unique needs that need to be addressed. “I have to be real careful here, because I don’t want make it seem like African Americans are different from the human race. They are human with the same needs, desires, goals and aspirations. I believe our children can learn to thrive and be very productive individuals the world.” But Cole, whose organization is an affiliate of NABSE and prides itself on having data to back up statements would go no further on these speculations. She did say that the group expects to have information in the coming months that should shed light on the issue. But one of HDABSE’s efforts to combat the problem is to focus on teaching parents the importance of being at the table. Watkins of CAAAE, who just retired after working 35 years in high school, believes one solution is culturally responsive professional development of teachers. At the same time, Watkins says African American students must be educated. “Our kids get mad, and say ‘she doesn’t like me, I don’t like her. I’m not going to do the work.’ We have to work on the kids. They can’t take those attitudes in class, because she (the teacher) is still going to get paid, and you (the student) are still going to be sitting here in the school-into-prison-pipeline.” Watkins points to one final consideration to ponder. Some Black parents feel that once they enroll their children in a “better” school, the problem is solved. But a Shaker Heights Study (and subsequent book: “Black American Students in an Affluent Suburb: A Study of Academic Disengagement”) by Stanford professor John Ogbu, shows why that is a serious mistake. “Shaker Heights is a very wealthy community in Cleveland. Parents called him in to find out why their kids were doing so poorly. What he found out was that parents were turning their kids over to racist teachers who, for the most part, didn’t care about them and were treating (students) horribly,” Watkins said. Parents called the results crazy and disregarded the findings. Lawson of NABSE says it may also be instructive to consider these factors as well—(1) Black middleclass status is more tenuous and sometimes mythical. But faces the constant threat of downward mobility. (2) Hip Hop has permeated deep into the African American culture and the majority of its content is skeptical of traditional school achievement, distrustful of the traditional educative process and resistant to school achievement-oriented masculine identity. For Black youth, at every GPA, being into Hip Hop is associated with higher self-esteem, but it is also associated with more problem behaviors in school. And finally (3) the new African American family structure is evolving without the cultural guidelines and values of the past, and is rife with young people, especially males, who lack an interest in education and development of one’s self to the fullest potentials, writes researcher Searetha Smith-Collins.

J.U.i.C.E uses Hip Hop culture to empower youth ■ Opportunities to showcase their work BY JULIANA NORWOOD OW STAFF WRITER

Justice by Uniting in Creative Energy (J.U.i.C.E.) is a nonprofit weekly Hip Hop arts program that seeks to develop youth leadership and technical skills, creative expression and self-confidence through the artistic elements of Hip Hop, which include breakdancing, urban art, deejaying, emceeing/spoken word and music recording. J.U.i.C.E. was founded in 2001 in the Rampart District of Los Angeles. The area roughly includes Westlake, Echo Park and Pico-Union. “We teach visual arts workshops, paint large-scale and legal graffiti murals in the community, record and produce music, emcee, and B-boy/B-girl,” said executive director Monica Delgado. “We create unique opportunities for underserved young artists to showcase their work, network with peers and pro-

fessionals and engage with their communities in a positive manner through the arts.” The program is free for all age groups and the organization’s vision is to sustain a safe and permanent home for youth where the elements of Hip Hop are used as a tool for social change, youth empowerment and art education. “Our mission is to address the root causes of juvenile crime and of youths’ need for belonging by providing a safe center run by and for young people, focused on skill building in the arts of the Hip Hop culture,” said Delgado. A major accomplishment for the organization was hosting their first Hip Hop artist exchange program this year. J.U.i.C.E. partnered with Amagezi Gemaanyi Youth Association, a nonprofit organization committed to creating safe, supportive, sustainable learning environment where youth can develop leadership skills and express themselves creatively, and took Los Angeles-based MC and Hellfyre Club recording

artist, Open Mike Eagle, and producer/recording artist, Ras G, to work with Ugandan rapper Mon MC, youth artists, and other local musicians in Uganda for three weeks in May. The program set out to accomplish four major goals: 1. Exchange knowledge about the musical traditions of Hip Hop, both its roots in African music and the unique styles of rapping and production born in Los Angeles, paying particular attention to similarities and differences in rhythm, melody, harmony, instrumentation and content. 2. Support the growth and development of Hip Hop music in Uganda through artist-led workshops for emerging artists in Uganda, focusing on production and rapping. 3. Collaboratively produce works of art, culminating in the production of five-track CD, which is now available for free online, called “Kampala Blackouts.” 4. Provide public benefit and experience of the arts through a live performance for the general public at the Ugandan National Theater in Kampala, Uganda. The nonprofit Hip Hop collective meets every

Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m. at the MacArthur Park Recreational Center at 2230 West 6th St., Los Angeles, and every Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. at Chuco’s Justice Center at 1137 E. Redondo Blvd. in Inglewood. This evening and on the third Thursday of every month, the J.U.i.C.E collective participates in “Fighting Words,” an open mic night where citizens of Inglewood take peaceful action through poetry and music to stop police brutality. The event is an outlet for those who have been affected by controversial police violence to gather and share their stories through rhyme and rhythm. On Saturday, Sept. 22, J.U.i.C.E will host their fifth annual Hip Hop Dance Festival at the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. The festival began as a way to allow local artists to explore and present commonly recognized styles of street dance with their own unique interpretations. Tickets for the event are $25 general admission and $12 for students and can be purchased online at http://www.fordtheatres.org/en/events/details/id/220.

OK, do you want to see something refreshing and different? If so, then you need to check out BBC America’s newest drama “Copper.” Here’s the background of the series. From Academy Award winner Barry Levinson and Emmy Award winner Tom Fontana, “Copper” is a gripping crime drama series set in 1864 New York City, filled with intrigue, corruption, mystery and murder. That description wasn’t enough to send me over the edge to seek the program out. After all, intrigue, corruption, etc. we get that even in our comedies, but setting a drama in 1864, in New York City? In the notorious Five Points district, this I had to see, and now I’m hooked. Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones, “MI-5?”), an Irish-American former boxer turned cop, returns from the Civil War to find his wife missing and his daughter dead. Corcoran seeks justice for the powerless in the notorious immigrant neighborhood of Five Points. Bonded by battle to two Civil War compatriots— the wayward son of a wealthy industrialist (Robert Morehouse) and an African American physician who secretly assists the forensic investigations—Corcoran is thrust into the contrasting worlds of elegant and

corrupt Fifth Avenue, and the emerging African American community in Northern Manhattan. The three men share a secret from the battlefield that inextricably links their lives forever. Yeah, that’s right. A brother stars, in a major role, and he’s married. This couple’s story alone is intriguing. Dr. Matthew Freeman is an African American physician, who was Morehouse’s valet during the Civil War—where he first encountered Corcoran. When called upon, Freeman now assists Corcoran in murder investigations, though he receives no credit for his contribution. Freeman practices modern scientific methods of deduction, but precinct superiors believe this to be Corcoran’s work and he doesn’t tell them otherwise. Freeman is devoted to his wife Sara whose two brothers were lynched during the Draft Riots. Anxious to allay her fear of White men, he moves them to the African American community of

Carmansville in order to assure her peace of mind. Sara simply doesn’t like White people; she doesn’t even want them walking on the road in front of her home, so she’s not exactly hospitable to Corcoran when he shows up all hours of the day or night, sometimes with a dead body in tow. Ato Essandoh (CBS’s “Blue Bloods”) stars as Dr. Freeman. Born in Schenectady, N.Y., to Ghanian parents, Essandoh attended Cornell University as a chemical engineer. He got the acting bug on a dare, got hooked and decided to study acting. He’s played a variety of roles on film and in television, and we can look for him in Quentin Tarrantino’s upcoming film “Django Unchained,” starring Jamie Foxx. Tessa Thompson (Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls”) stars as Sara Freeman. A Los Angeles native, Thompson was raised part-time in Brooklyn. She began her acting career on the stage, and has been featured in a number of guest-starring television

roles, most notably “Veronica Mars.” What I like about the storyline of the Black characters is we get to see what kind of life Blacks who weren’t slaves lived. As history tells us, the free Blacks still faced restrictions because of race, but many managed to somehow achieve in the face of great adversity. Case in point, although Dr. Freeman is a brilliant man, he dare not let his light shine too bright, or his light will surely be snuffed out. “Copper” is BBC America’s first original scripted series, and when it premiered on Sunday, Aug., 19, it became the channel’s highest-rated series premiere ever.

ABING AND MYRNA R.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 22619 ISLAND AVENUE, CARSON, CA 90745-4027 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining unpaid balance of the obligations secured by and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust (together with any modifications thereto). NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder`s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714.730.2727 or visit this Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com, using the file number assigned to this case 12-01087-3. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The 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 $340,405.00 (Estimated), provided, 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.

In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks 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 Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state.

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 (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www.rppsales.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1364499-02.

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 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 (800)-280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2012-00384. 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.

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 800280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-12-511170-AB . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney.
