Martha Cooper, Mother of Earl “Skip” Cooper, Passed Away

Omarosa Manigualt Uninvited to Speak at Barack Obama Global Academy is Political not Legal By Gloria Zuurveen Editor-in-Chief The recent invitation accepted by the Rev. Omarosa Manigualt to speak at the Barack Obama Global Preparation Academy's 1st Annual Women's History Month celebration on March 24, 2014 has turned into a political mine field. Rev. Omarosa, who happens to be a candidate for the Los Angeles Unified School District, accepted the invitation because of her outstanding achievements and accomplishments as a woman. She is renown for her role on the television show "The Apprentice" and serves as an assistant pastor of "The Historical" Weller Street Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles under the leadership of Senior Pastor Rev. K.W. Tullos. Rev. Omarosa recently spoke at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in honor of Women History Month and had every intention of doing the same in Los Angeles at the Barack Obama Global Preparation Academy after it was approved by the principal, David Bell and the Parent Center Coordinator, Roselee Jackson. Unfortunately, due to the political mine field the two found themselves in, Bell and Jackson, after the approved invitation and a published article appeared in the PACE NEWS newspaper, they backpedaled and sought refuge from the LAUSD communications and legal departments seeking a reason to un-invite the Rev. Omarosa as the keynote speaker for the Women's History Month celebration at the Barack Obama Global Prep Academy scheduled for Monday, March 24. Gayle Pollard-Terry, a former Los Angeles Times reporter and now a mouthpiece for the school district, emailed PACE NEWS on Tuesday, March 18 with attached responses from her and Bell stating why Rev. Omarosa cannot speak at the school. First, Bell's response said, "Dear Ms. Zuurveen, Please accept this brief note with my sincere apologies for my oversight in inviting Ms. Omarosa Manigualt to be a guest speaker at my school, Barack Obama MS in honor of Women's History Month. Unfortunately since Ms. Manigault is running for office, the vacant seat of Ms. Marguerite LaMotte, LAUSD Board of Education, District 1 in the special June election, allowing her speak to our students or parents on our campus would risk a violation of the education code which prohibits the use of school district resources for political advocacy."

OAKLAND—On Saturday, March 15, the mother of Earl “Skip” Cooper passed away peacefully at her home in Oakland, CA. She was 92 years old. I had the pleasure of featuring her in PACE NEWS for her 90th

With Bell email a link was also provided to the LAUSD Election Tipsheet. Pollard-Terry's email said, "Hi Gloria: Here is the response regarding why Omarosa Manigault can't speak at Barack Obama. Sorry for the delay. We had to get approval from legal, and then due to protocol I was asked to send it to you." Along with Pollard-Terry's email there were also copies of a Campaign Activities-Board Ruling.doc and Campaign policy.doc. I was baffled because at no time was Rev. Omarosa asked to campaign nor did she forward any information that indicated she was a candidate for a LAUSD school board seat. She simply sent a picture and bio with information about her being a servant abroad in places like Haiti and the Los Angeles community. The California Education Code 7054 is quite broad yet it is definitive in what it says and it certainly does not prohibits Rev. Omarosa in no way from speaking out in a public forum whereby she is compelled to give up her Constitutional First Amendment right as a citizen. According to the CA. Code 7054 it is a violation to advocate for a ballot measure or a candidate, neither of these activities were Rev. Omarosa invited to engage in nor had she expressed any intentions to do so. The information she forwarded after the acceptance of the invitation revealed nothing which indicated Rev. Omarosa was a candidate. It was indicative of her as a woman was asked to speak about on the theme, "Women of Honor and Virtue". The willful and negligent un-inviting of Rev. Omarosa was political and not legal. It was political, in that although Rev. Omarosa was asked to speak for a Women's History Month event, notwithstanding she is a candidate, Bell and his political allies chose to see her in no other way than a political foe, thereby causing a political minefield to erupt into chaos. Please see Omarosa, page 3

LAUSD Shined the Spotlight on the Arts By Ricky Richardson LOS ANGELES—A surge of creative energy swarmed throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District from March 1-14, 2014. All of this creative energy was powered by students within the District. From March 1-14, schools across the district held school-site events that featured student musical, dance and theatrical performances. The two-

mates. The idea for the Arts Fest came from Hamilton High School Freshman, Jordyn Sacino, who asked the question- “why not use art to save art?” Last year, LAUSD challenged its students in the “My Bright Idea” Challenge to come up with programs they would like to see in the District that promotes positivity. Jordyn’s suggestion towered above the rest. The “LAUSD Arts Fest in

Washington Prep High School Band Photo by Ricky Richardson week festival celebrating the arts served as a grand segue into the March 15th event at Grand Park entitled “LAUSD Arts Fest in the Park.” The final result was a massive showcase of sparkling outpouring of the Arts at the inaugural “LAUSD Arts Fest in the Park” on Saturday, March 15th, 2014. Yes, ladies and gentleman; boys and girls, Spring is in the air, even though it felt like it was Summer. Several thousand students performed in front of a huge crowd assembled in Grand Park. Grand Park served as the perfect canvas for the student’s creative expressions. The crowd consisted of LAUSD Administrators, proud parents and teachers, counselors, family, friends and fellow class-

the Park” featured several stages with ongoing live student performances; an artist market; a screening room featuring student short films; a creativity zone; an opportunity drawing for student art; vendor booths; plus many giveaways. Attendees had ample options if they were hungry; food trucks lined the south end of Grand Park. The participating food trucks set up for the event were; Belly Bombz Food Truck, Cousins Maine Lobster, Grilled Cheese Truck, Kogi BBQ Taco Truck, Me So Hungry Food Truck, Ragin Cajun Food Truck, Tainamite Food Truck. Additional treats available were Homeboy Industries Bakery, Keith’s Popcorn, and Madelin’s Delight Nuts. Please see Arts, page 3

Mrs. Martha Mouzone Cooper birthday. I also had the honor and privilege to speak with Mrs. Cooper on several occasions. For one who was nearly twice my age, she amazed me as to how such a quick thinker she was and oh how she could keep a conversation going with very clear thoughts. She spoke about her many grandchildren, her great grandchildren and great, great children. She talked about how much fun she had with them. She talked about her crossword puzzles she loved to work on to keep her mind sharp. I called her mama and she received me as one of her own although she had never seen me face to face. I will miss the opportunity to pick up the phone and chat with her but I am so grateful for the time I had. Mrs. Cooper was the mother of four children: Eleanor Mae, Barbara Jean, Earl, Jr. (Skippy) and Charles Bruce who preceded her in death. One of our local business leaders and trailblazer, Earl “Skip” Cooper III is the President and CEO of the Black Business Association, (BBA). Mrs. Cooper was a housewife to Earl Cooper who passed away in 1976. She resided in the same home since 1947. She worked for Kaiser Permanente and retired in 1983 after twenty years of service. She was an active member in her church, First AME Church over 70 years. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and loved ones. A memorial services is scheduled for April 3, 2014 at the Frist AME Church located at 530 37th Street, Oakland, CA 94609. The phone number is (510) 655-1527.

Hello Readers, It is spring time and we are in a new time frame. We have more daylight and can spend more time outdoors with our families and friends. It is almost Easter a time for resurrection power. The Lord is good and he has shown his mercy toward us in while we were yet sinner He died for us. We are to be grateful and gracious for all He has done to set us free. Thank God for being such a good God. He is a wonderful God and He can do anything but fail. He is my rock in a weary land. I lean on Him for all my needs. When times seems like I just can’t go on, I look to Jesus sitting high and making intercession for me upon the throne. I say to myself I need to count my blessings and name them one by one. I need to count my blessings and see what God has done. He has done it all and I have nothing to do but to put my faith in His finished work and praise Him daily. Join my in my praise. Amen.

More Than 100,000 Black Parents are Homeschooling Their Children By Jawanza Kunjufu We hear so much about the plight of Black children and their low test scores. We have not heard that African-American children who are homeschooled are scoring at the 82 percent in reading and 77 percent in math. This is 30-40 percent above their counterparts who are being taught in school. There is a 30 percent racial gap in schools, but there is no racial gap in reading if taught in the home and only a 5 percent gap in math. What explains the success of African-American students being taught by their parents? I believe that it's love and high expectations. I am reminded of Booker T. Washington High School. They were honored several years ago for producing the greatest turnaround as a Recovery school. The principal had the opportunity to pick and choose her staff and emphatically stated, "If you want to teach in this school you must love the students." Researchers love promoting that the racial gap is based on income, marital status, and the educational background of the parents. Seldom, if ever, do they research the impact of love and high expectations. Since the landmark decision, Brown vs. Topeka in 1954, there has been a 66 percent decline in AfricanAmerican teachers. Many African-American students are in classrooms where they are not loved, liked, or respected. Their culture is not honored and bonding is not considered. They are given low expectations – which helps to explain how students can be promoted from one grade to another without mastery of the content.

There are so many benefits to homeschooling beyond academics. Most schools spend more than 33 percent of the day disciplining students. And bullying has become a significant issue. One of every six Black males is suspended and large numbers are given Ritalin and placed in special education. These problems seldom, if ever, exist in the homeschool environment. Another major benefit is the summer months. Research shows that there is a 3-year-gap between White and Black students. Some students do not read nor are involved in any academic endeavor during the summer. Those students lose 36 months or three years if you multiply three months times 12 years (grades first -12). Homeschool parents do not allow academics to be forsaken for three months. Finally, in the homeschool environment, parents are allowed to teach their children values. Large numbers of parents are teaching their children faithbased morals and principals. And many are teaching their children with the Africentric curriculum SETCLAE. These children are being taught truths like, Columbus did not discover America; Abraham Lincoln did not free the slaves; Hippocrates was not the father of medicine and that African history did not begin on a plantation, but on a pyramid. Until public schools give more love, higher expectations, better classroom management, greater time on task throughout the entire year, values, and the SETCLAE curriculum, we can expect to continue to see an increase in African-American parents homeschooling their children.

Obama Keeps Promise to Use 'Power of the Pen By Julianne Malveaux During his State of the Union address, President Obama promised to use the power of his pen to achieve the policy objectives that Congress continues to block. After advocating fairness and being rebuffed by Congress, the president chose to use the power of his pen to require federal contractors to pay workers at least $10.10 per hour, or $21.800 per year. That puts a single parent with two children below the poverty line. Now the president is using the power of his pen to ensure that workers receive overtime pay. Currently, the only workers required to receive overtime pay are those who earn $445 a week, about $11 an hour or $23,000 per year. The president has proposed that that amount be raised to somewhere between $550 and $970 a year. Splitting the difference means that those who earn about $760 a week or $39,500 a year would be entitled to overtime. Already the business lobby has said that both a higher minimum wage and mandatory overtime cuts into their profits. Already they have talked about cutting the number of workers they will employ, and the number of hours they will employ people. These greedy corporate giants fail to note that while wages and salaries for the top one percent soared by nearly a third in the past three tears, the wages of those in the remaining 99 percent rose by a fraction of one percent in three years. A worker earning $30,000 a year saw her wages rise to $30,300; someone earning $300,000 a year saw his wages rise to $396,000. Clearly, those who earn $30,300, if not poor, are a stone’s throw away from poverty. These are the folks who struggle from paycheck to paycheck, who make decisions about whether to buy their children new shoes or pay the cable bill. These folks aren’t trying to purchase luxuries, and they aren’t looking for handouts. They just want to live decently, with enough food on the table, with bills paid, and with a little breathing room. These are folks who don’t take vacations. Luxury for them may mean a couple of days off to visit neighborhood parks.

Summertime, when the living is easy for children, may be a burden to those parents who can’t afford childcare. With his effort to reduce income inequality and improve the lives of those at least the President is moving in the right direction. Unfortunately he can’t get enough members of congress to follow, because they are committed to obstructionism. Aren’t there poor people in these republican districts? Are they willing to sacrifice the well being of their constituents to hold fast to party principles? Researchers should look at the levels of poverty in each Congressional district and shame thesemiscreants into doing the right thing. Republicans forget, and some Democrats fail to argue, that increasing the economic well being of those at the bottom improves the nation’s economic status. Those at the bottom will use added wages to pay bills, to buy some of the things they’ve put off purchasing, to pump money into the economy. In contrast, those at the top are likely to save their money or invest it, failing to spend enough to trickle down their spending to benefit those at the bottom. It is said that a rising tide lifts all boats. But some folks are riding a luxury yacht, while others are struggling to survive on a raft. The rising tides argument only works for those at those at the top who have seen their wages grow dramatically. Those at the bottom are barely floating on a tottering raft that has dozens of holes, as evidenced by their small pay increases, low wages, and lack of overtime. To the extent that President Obama has the power of the pen he can both improve the lives of those at the bottom, but also remind us of the meaning go fair labor standards. This is a conversation our nation has not had in awhile. We have been content to let the wages of those at the bottom continue to drift downward, while using tax policy and fiction (rising tide) to enrich those at the top. What does it take to sensitize those at the top to the plight of those at the bottom? The Occupy movement looks better by the day. Julianne Malveaux is a Washington, D.C.-based economist and writer. She is President Emerita of Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, N.C.

EDUCATION & COMMUNITY NEWS Waters Calls on HHS Inspector General to Investigate LACOE LOS AN GELE S— Congresswoman Maxine Waters on Wednesday called on the Office of the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to investigate questionable techniques used by the Los Angeles County

Office of Education (LACOE) to close Head Start Centers located in densely populated low-income African-American and Latino communities. These techniques include relinquishing head start contracts without the opportunity

to appeal or without a formal LACOE vote recommending closure. LACOE is the nation's largest regional education agency that supports over two million preschool and school-age children in the Los Angeles region. Congresswoman Waters

Atty General Kamala Harris Issues Comprehensive Report on Transnational Organized Crime in CA LOS ANGELES - Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued the first comprehensive report analyzing the current state of transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) in California and the threats they pose to the state’s public safety and economy. The report also sets forth recommendations to combat the increasingly complex issue of transnational organized crime in California. “The growth of transnational criminal organizations seriously threatens California’s safety and economic well-being,” Attorney General Harris said. “State and local law enforcement officers are on the front lines of this fight every day. Our response must include sustained funding for their work and strong coordination at all levels of government.” This new report, Gangs Beyond Borders: California and the Fight Against Transnational Organized Crime, addresses the three emerging pillars of transnational criminal activity: the trafficking of drugs, weapons and human beings; money laundering; and high-tech crimes, such as digital piracy, hacking and fraud. The report highlights the work of law enforcement to date in combatting transnational crime and details major strides that have already been made to stop this violent, insidious threat. It analyzes how transnational criminal organizations are innovating, and outlines recommendations to adapt to new challenges, including stricter laws targeting TCO leaders, sustained funding for law enforcement, and strong collaboration between federal, state, local and international governments. The report is a result of extensive research and consultation with federal, state, and local law enforcement, non-governmental organizations and academia. The full report can be viewed

the relinquishment of its Head Start contract is the fourth Head Start program that has been closed using the same questionable techniques. The other Head Start centers serving the Los Angeles area, Urban League, Delta Sigma Theta, and Federation of Preschool and Early Education Center, were accused of violations, some of which were not substantiated, and given no opportunity by LACOE to appeal." "It is my belief that LACOE's intimidation tactics in this case and other similar cases raise serious questions and should be thoroughly investigated by the Office of the Inspector General," the letter continues.

CHURCH & COMMUNITY NEWS Answering Your Children's Questions About Easter By Jeff Land Easter is a great time for parents to teach their kids about Christ's death and resurrection. It's also a time that many parents would prefer for their kids' Sunday School teachers to do the teaching because it's hard to gauge what to share and what not to share. Imagine explaining to your 3-year-old that even though Jesus never disobeyed His parents and never did anything wrong, He was beaten, spat upon, and then hung on a cross. Christ's obedience to His Father and His love for us is what led Him to the cross. The beauty of Easter is foreshadowed by the darkness of Good Friday. You should take every opportunity with your kids to share the hope of Jesus' miraculous life as well as the love and obedience He showed on the cross. Here are a few ways to share the beauty of Easter with your kids: Avoid the trap of a commercialized Easter For our family, we've chosen not to have the Easter Bunny. Abbey and I felt that introducing its existence to our kids would take away from the Easter message that we want our kids to know. We want to keep Easter a

sacred day in our home and help our kids know that it's something special. Getting caught up with the worldly view of Easter can create confusion for your kids, who may learn that Easter is more about coloring eggs and getting baskets than the resurrection of our Savior. Tell the whole story Though you might not share all the details of Christ's trial, persecution, and crucifixion, you should share key parts of the biblical text with your child. Depending on your child's ability to comprehend, you can adjust the information you share. Your child should know that Jesus was judged unfairly, died on a cross, and rose again. If you stop at the crucifixion, your child misses the glorious resurrection. If you start at the resurrection, your child misses Christ's payment on the cross for our sins. The whole Easter story is transformational. Focus on Jesus He's the hero of the story. Remind your child about His life and teachings. Talk about His perfect nature as the Son of God. Help your child to understand that Jesus came to earth knowing that His crucifixion and resurrection would happen. His earthly life was given for the purpose of being the Savior of humanity. He died for you and me. If your child is at the age where he or she is inter-

Board of Equalization Members Horton and Yee Hit the Hallelujah Trail for Taxpayers LOS ANGELES— Congregations at McCoy Memorial Baptist Church, City of Refuge and Grant AME Church got a surprise visit at Sunday services from Board of Equalization Chairman Jerome E. Horton and fellow Board Member, Betty Yee. They were there to encourage the church communities to get behind the last remaining weeks of the agency’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Taxpayers who attend the events receive tax preparation assistance from trained and certified volunteers, and receive information about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Individuals who are eligible may qualify for as much as $6,044 from the EITC. Taxpayers should bring proof of identification including social security cards, wage and earning statement(s) from employers, interest and dividend statements from banks, bank routing and ac-

ested in becoming a Christian, this is a perfect opportunity for you to share how he or she can make Jesus Lord over his or her life. Want to share the gospel with your children but aren't sure where to start? Use this for guidance. God's Plan for You • God rules. The Bible tells us God created everything, including you and me, and He's in charge of everything. (Genesis 1:1; Colossians 1:16-17; Revelation 4:11) http://www.lifeway.com/ Article/HomeLife-Answering-YourChildrens -Que s tions -About-. . . 3/21/2014 • We sinned. We all choose to disobey God. The Bible calls this sin. Sin separates us from God and deserves God's punishment of death. (Romans 3:23) • God provided. God sent Jesus, the perfect solution to our sin problem, to rescue us from the punishment we deserve. It's something we, as sinners, could never earn on our own. Jesus alone saves us. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:89; Romans 6:23) • Jesus gives. He lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again. Because Jesus gave up His life for us, we can be welcomed into God's family for eternity. This is the best gift ever! (Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18; Ephesians 2:8-9) • We respond. Believe in your heart that Jesus alone saves you

through what He's already done on the cross. Repent, turning from self and sin to Jesus. Tell God and others that your faith is in Jesus. (John 14:6; Romans 10:910,13) If you stop at the crucifixion, your child misses the glorious resurrection. If you start at the resurrection, your child misses Christ's payment on the cross for our sins. Keeping It Appropriate Preschoolers Preschoolers need to know the basics. They generally don't understand words such as perfect, crucifixion, and resurrection. You can tell your child that people killed Jesus on the cross, but Jesus was able to rise from death and is alive because He's God's Son. These concepts lay a foundation for future understanding. Talk to your preschooler in warm, reassuring tones. Young Children Younger kids are capable of handling more detailed information. They can know that bad people unfairly tried Jesus and He was sentenced to death on the cross. You can point out that Jesus was beaten before He was crucified. Jesus died. He was buried. After three days, God raised Him back to life. Some key words to start to emphasize and define are crucifixion and resurrection. As you tell the story, try to share it in 5 to 7 minutes to maintain your child's attention. Ask questions to check for understanding. Older Children

Older kids need to understand the details of the story. They need to know why Jesus' trial was unfair. They need to hear that Pilate could find no guilt in Him. They can hear about the people's demand for Barabbas' release. Share with them the agony that Christ felt as He was beaten and hung upon the cross. Allow them to read about how He was treated while on the cross. By this age, your child has probably gained the basic understanding of Christ's death and resurrection, so this is the time to add details. But Why? Kids are full of questions. Here are a few questions kids may have about Easter and possible answers for you to consider: • Why did Jesus have to die? Jesus came to earth knowing that He would one day die. He died because people needed a Savior. • Did God want Jesus to be killed? No. God created people to be perfect, but then people did bad things. But because God's love for us is great, He sent Jesus to redeem our sins. • Did it hurt Jesus when people were mean to Him? Yes. Jesus had feelings.

HEALTH & COMMUNITY NEWS Covered California Director Admits African American Enrollees Too Low SACRAMENTO— Concerned about the low number of African-Americans taking advantage of low-cost health insurance plans or free Medi-Cal coverage, Covered California is pumping new resources into an eleventh-hour drive to get more black Californians to seize the opportunities available through Obamacare. The Affordable Care Act enrollment deadline is March 31. Beyond that date, Californians without health care coverage — either through an employer, the Covered California insurance exchange or MediCal — will face financial penalties. Only about half of the blacks in California eligible for a dramatic improvement in their health care coverage have enrolled thus far. Of particular interest to advocates are the opportunities in Medi-Cal: it is now available, free of charge, to all single men and women earning

less than $14,431 per year; families of four are eligible for MediCal with an income less than $29,367. In a recent press briefing, Covered California executive director Peter V. Lee acknowledged the challenge of getting more African-Americans engaged in the enrollment process. “With African-Americans it’s about 2.6 percent of folks that have enrolled, and the percentage who are eligible is about 4 percent — so we are not doing as well as we want,” he said in response to a question from California Black Media. “So, one of our targets in the last month has been to redouble our efforts. We’ve made additional ad buys in African-American papers and are doing more outreach. We’re optimistic, because our aspirations are that we want to enroll everybody that is eligible.” However, Betty Williams, of 1 Solution — a statewide certified

Chocolate Capsule By Dean L. Jones, CPM Living a sugary-filled product free life feels good, except for the temptation to eat dark chocolate. In view of that, I became intrigued upon learning about how the Mars candy company has funded a fiveyear study of 18,000 healthy people to determine whether a pill containing the cocoa flavanols nutrients in dark chocolate can help prevent heart attacks, strokes and other related heart diseases. My interest follows how these cocoa flavanols have already proven to have positive benefits in preventing the risk factors associated with heart disease, high blood pressure (helping blood vessels to dilate), cholesterol, and sensitivity to insulin. Making it no secret that cacao, which is the source of dark chocolate's distinct taste, comes loaded with healthy chemicals like flavanols and theobromine. The challenge for food manufacturers is cacao has a bitter, chalky like taste so by adding sugar, an emulsifier (usually soy lecithin), and flavorings such as vanilla work to make it more palatable. The cocoa content of commercial dark chocolate bars can range from 30% (semisweet dark) to 70%, 75%, or even above 80% that extremely dark chocolate bar, which is what I personally prefer eating. Nevertheless, constantly eating small amounts of processed sugar is an unhealthy practice and the pursuit to develop a concentrated pill gives room for a somewhat valid surrogate. On the other hand, it would be completely logical if chemical pills did not always come with a level of toxicity that normally far outweighs the dangers associated with eating processed milk, butter and/or sugar. What's more, anywhere dominate corporations voluntarily pay for scientific research the end result can only be to amass huge financial profits, therefore the mere idea that Mars Incorporated is doing this solely to create a heart disease pill stopper is open to discussion. This scientific study focuses on bio-active nutrients found in

Dean L. Jones the cocoa bean, without all the extra ingredients such as sugar, found in chocolate candies. This follows other research that has shown how cocoa flavanols when taken as a pill improves blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the body’s use of insulin. Although I have never considered taking such a pill, lozenge, or tablet, Mars Incorporated already sells CocoaVia, which is a cocoa extract capsule containing 250 milligrams of flavanols. Even more interesting is that the Mars company's large line of products barely carries true dark chocolate items. The Dove® Dark Chocolate bar comes close using ingredients that include a semisweet chocolate, although it is made with sugar, milk chocolate, chocolate processed with alkali, cocoa butter, milkfat, soy lecithin, natural and artificial flavors, which are non-heart friendly items. Mars also produces Uncle Ben's Rice and Wrigley Company's line of foodstuff. Mars is legendarily known for creating and selling milk chocolate candies like Milky Way, M&M's, Twix, Snickers, and the Mars bar, not to mention its trendy Skittles. www.SugarAlert.com Dean Jones, Ethics Advocate, Southland Partnership Corporation (a public benefit organization), contributes his view on consuming various unwholesome packaged foods and beverages.

Covered California enroller and educator, serving a predominantly African-American population — believes the turnout could have been better. “I’ve been saying that for a long time,” she said. “The coverage in print, radio and social media just wasn’t there from the beginning. I’ve had to step up and hire more staff. In addition, the 800 [information] number closes at 5 [p.m.], and I’ve partnered with some churches to enroll people from 5:30 onward. I’ve even used my own money to cover the expense.” These challenges don’t exist in every community. At a recent public event in downtown Los Angeles, Lee, along with Toby Douglas, director of the California Department of Health Services (DHCS), announced that more than 3 million Californians have signed up through Covered California or Medi-Cal since Oct. 1. According to Lee, the number of consumers selecting a Covered California health insur-

ance plan reached 880,082 by the end of February — including 762,174 consumers who are eligible for subsidies. He added that the five-month enrollment figure exceeds by more than 200,000 the base projection for Covered California for the entire sixmonth enrollment period, which ends March 31. Still, in the AfricanAmerican community, advocates are pushing forward with culturally-specific methods of outreach. One of those avenues: getting people enrolled in houses of worship. Several faith-based organizations in California have been enlisted to spread the word about the importance of securing health care coverage. “Churches are considered an important engine in funneling information to the African American community, because historically the church, family and the school have been the major institutions responsible for the viability of the African-American community,” said Tara Lynn Gray of the

California Black Health Network. “In addition, the church is many times the center for social interaction in African- American communities — and therefore influences ideas, thoughts and cultural dynamics of the entire community.” With the deadline drawing nearer, civil rights organizations are also stepping up efforts to boost enrollment. Frederick B. Young Jr., president of the Tri-City NAACP in Solano County, said his organization has hosted forums aimed at disseminating accurate information and encouraging peopleto enroll. Most forum attendees have questions about cost and the process of changing coverage. Among the proudest successes for Young’s organization: helping secure coverage for both a cancer patient and a developmentally disabled young adult. “Our primary objective,” Young said, “is to educate folks.” CBM correspondent Kenzie Jackson contributed to this report.

BUSINESS & COMMUNITY NEWS Solid February Gains Point to Seller Optimism From RISMedia As prices continue to rise, more sellers are putting their homes on the market than this time last year, according to Realtor.com®’s recently released National Housing Trend Report for February 2014. This movement is a sign of confidence in the gains sustained through the winter and an indication of a strong early beginning to the spring home buying season. Data from realtor.com® reveals the number of properties for sale in February rose 10.1 percent above February 2013 levels, to 1,744,032 units. The median list price at $199,000 increased 7.6 percent compared to the same month last year, and the median age of inventory increased 6.5 percent above year ago figures, to 114 days. “Overall these figures indicate a continued reinforcement of steady gains and market stabilization that we’ve been watching since late last summer,” says Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Move. “Seller confidence is the factor to watch as we head into the spring home buying season, and these are very encouraging indicators – not only are more homes coming onto the market, but typically we don’t see a rise in asking prices this early into the year. This is the market these sellers have been waiting for.” Many have speculated that as homeowners gained equity across 2013, sellers otherwise prevented from making ‘life event’ associated housing changes, for various reasons such as births, children entering school, aging home owners downsizing to smaller residences and others, now are finally able to tap into the resources necessary to make those changes. The increase in inventory is even more noteworthy given the severe climate conditions that likely dampened a more typical

month of listing activity across much of the nation. National Perspective · Widespread inventory increases: Nationally, inventories in February were 10.1 percent higher than they were one year ago. 99 of the 146 markets tracked by realtor.com saw year over-year gains in inventory in February; of those, 63 markets rose by ten percent or more. The added supply does not appear to be impacting price gains; just eight markets of those with inventory gains registered declines in median list price year over year, none greater than 6.1 percent. Broad inventory gains in more than half the markets in February are strong signs of a far healthier inventory than the previous year. · List prices rise in advance of the buying season: Despite the increase in inventory, the median list price jumped by more than 2 percent in February to $199,000, 7.6 percent higher than it was one year ago. These list price increases are another sign of seller confidence going into the selling season, as sellers price their homes in anticipation of market conditions in the coming months. While annual gains in list price were widespread, they also were fairly modest throughout much of the country; of the 121 markets that posted year-on-year gains in median list price in February, 84 markets rose less than 10 percent. These modest increases are positive signs of a more balanced market overall heading into the spring season. · Days on market grow slightly: Along with the notable uptick in inventory and median list price in February, median age of inventory gained 6.5 percent in February compared to year ago levels, to 114 days. 93 of the markets tracked by realtor.com saw increases in

time on market in February; of those, 21 markets increased time on market by 20 percent or more. 45 markets still registered year-over-year declines in age of inventory in February 2014, with 8 markets dropping

more than 10 percent compared to year-ago levels. Local Market Highlights · In the California markets that became overheated last spring, inventories have bounced back. Stockton has twice as many homes listed on

realtor.com than they had a year ago. Fresno, Bakersfield, Riverside and Oakland all report year over year increases of 40 percent or more on the numbers of homes for sale.

Atty General Kamala Harris Issues Comprehensive Report on Transnational Organized Crime in CA (Continued from page 3) enforcement agencies should increase operational coordination in combatting transnational criminal organizations •State and local authorities should develop public-private partnerships to leverage technology against transnational crime. •Businesses should adopt industry best practices designed to protect against cybercrime. •The Legislature should amend California law to enable prosecutors to temporarily freeze the assets of transnational criminal organizations and their gang associates before the filing of an indictment. •The Legislature should strengthen California’s prohibition against financial transaction

“structuring.” •California prosecutors need advanced training to combat sophisticated money laundering schemes. •State authorities should partner with their Mexican counterparts to share intelligence and disrupt the illicit flow of money across the border. Next week, Attorney General Harris will lead a delegation of state attorneys general to Mexico to strengthen working relationships between the governments of both countries and enhance efforts to combat transnational crime. The delegation will meet with Mexican state attorneys general and federal officials to discuss the issues of drug, human and firearms trafficking, money laundering and high-tech crime. The Attorneys General will

travel to Mexico City from March 24 through the 26. The delegation includes California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris, Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and New Mexico Attorney General Gary King. In 2012, Attorney General Harris released a report, The State of Human Trafficking in California, which outlined the growing prevalence of the crime of human trafficking in the state, the increasing involvement of sophisticated transnational gangs in perpetrating the crime and the modern technologies that traffickers use to facilitate it. http://www.oag.ca.gov/humantrafficking/2012

LOCAL NEWS The Community Mourns the Loss of Civil Rights Activist Celes King IV On Saturday, March 15th, 2014, well known community leader, political and civil rights activist, Celes King IV, passed away by heart failure in San Diego. He was surrounded by family and close friends. Celes King IV was born in Los Angeles on October 19th, 1943, the first born of legendary Civil Rights leader and Bail Bondsman to the stars, General Celes King III, and Anita Lugo King, internationally respected, delegate to the UN World Conference on the Rights of Women. As a youth he drove for his father and mother and in this capacity with his sister Teri he was able to participate in their parents hosting of prominent figures from around the world. After attending Antioch College Celes IV, left the family business, set out on his own and managed several businesses throughout the country before returning to participate in the multi generational family business built around the Celes King Bail Bond companies. After his return to the fold, the family suffered the loss of both parents and Celes IV then joined with his sister Teri who managed administration of the Bail Bond business internally

with Celes IV handling the expediting of external affairs. It was in this phase that Celes developed into a very effective lobbyist in the course of advocating for several organizations throughout the state including most notably the Congress of Racial Equality of California which had been founded by his father General Celes King, a veteran of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen. Celes IV quickly became a popular and effective operative in the halls of government in both Los Angeles and Sacramento. He was significantly able to work on both sides of the aisle, relentlessly advocating on behalf of the underserved communities. Fellow directors of the CORECA Board and family recalled Celes frequently saying that his role in Sacramento was to “Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” With characteristic determination Celes founded the Family Foundation named after his parents Anita Lugo King and Celes King III. He was also President and CEO of the King Central Self Development Foundation, The Phoenix Alliance and served on several Boards including the California Black Chamber of

Congresswoman Bass’ Statement On the Passing of Celes King IV “I join countless Angelenos, Californians, and Americans in mourning the loss of Celes King IV. Celes was a dear friend to many of us and a tireless activist up until his last days. Celes’ passing is a huge loss for the organization he led, the Congress of Racial Equality, and the South L.A. community. “I remember Celes working the halls of the legislature when I served in Sacramento as an assertive and compelling voice for affordable housing and education, and his efforts con-

tinue to benefit marginal communities not just in South Los Angeles, but he created waves of good that touched every corner of California. “Celes was a bridge builder, an advocate and a friend. He stood on the shoulders of a strong lineage of civil rights leaders and he built on their legacy. Angelenos and Californians for generations will benefit from the energy and compassion of this truly extraordinary man.”

STATE / NATIONAL & WORLD NEWS Holly Mitchell Bill Would Equalize CA Penalties for Crack and Powder Cocaine Offenses SACRAMENTO, CA — Senator Holly J. Mitchell (DSouth Los Angeles) has introduced SB 1010 to set the same penalties for sale of crack cocaine as now apply to the equally illegal sale of powder cocaine. In current California law, sentences for intent-to-sell crack convictions range from three to five years, but for powder only two to four years. Because crack cocaine is cheaper than the powdered version, there are more crack convictions in low income and minority communities. Senator Mitchell’s bill would correct the unjustified disparity in sentencing, probation and asset forfeiture guidelines for low level crack and powder cocaine offenses. The nonparti-

san Legislative Analyst’s Office estimates millions of dollars in savings for state and local governments if SB 1010 becomes law. ”Same crime, same punishment is a basic principle of law in our democratic society,” said Senator Mitchell, a member of the Senate Public Safety Committee. “Yet more Black and Brown people serve longer sentences for trying to sell cocaine because the law unfairly punishes cheap drug traffic more severely than the white-collar version. Well, fair needs to be fair.” Scientific reports, including a major study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, demonstrate that the powder and crack forms of cocaine have

Waters' Statements on the Passing of Ovarie "OV" Smith Lo s A ng e le s, CA – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) issued the following statement recently on the passing of Ovarie "OV" Smith, a longtime advocate for the mentally disabled. "I am deeply saddened by the loss of my dear friend OV Smith, whom I have known for more than 30 years. OV and I became friends while I served in the California State Assembly and she was working to educate members of the Assembly about the needs of persons with developmental disabilities. "OV Smith dedicated her life to caring for the developmentally disabled. For more than 40 years, she welcomed them into her home while also taking them to church on Sundays, traveling with them on cruises and other trips, and accompanying them to activities in the community. OV founded several organizations in Los Angeles to help them develop to their full potential, initiate public policy through the legislative process, and educate caregivers on how to care for and develop the potential of their clients.

"In 1970, Ms. Smith founded OV’s Willing Workers for the Mentally Retarded, which provides day care, social development and educational services to developmentally disabled persons. This was the first organization of its kind in California that provided extensive and comprehensive services. "Her courage to confront the establishment, knowledge of the law, and commitment to initiate change has gained the respect of lawmakers, agency officials, and the overall community. She had been recognized by many organizations and sought out for her insights. Her motto “These are God’s people, and we are responsible for them” bespoke the true heart she put into advocating for people with developmental disabilities. "OV Smith will be sorely missed by everyone who had their lives touched by her graciousness. We all benefitted from her commitment, vision, and caring heart. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends during this difficult time."

nearly identical effects on the human body. Crack results from processing cocaine powder with an alkali, typically common baking soda. Gram for gram, there is less active drug in crack cocaine than in powder cocaine. According to national survey data, crack cocaine use is approximately equal among all ethnic and racial groups. However, according to intake data from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, people of color account for over 98% of persons sent to California prisons for possession of crack cocaine for sale. From 2005 to 2010, Blacks accounted for 77.4% of state prison commitments for crack possession for sale, Latinos accounted for 18.1%. Whites

accounted for less than 2 percent of all those sent to California prisons in that five year period. Blacks make up 6.6% of the population in California; Latinos 38.2%, and whites 39.4%. “Eliminating this disparity is a very important step towards fulfilling the promise of equal justice and ending the pattern of racial discrimination and over-incarceration that has targeted Latinos and all communities of color for many years now,” noted Antonio Gonzalez, President, William C. V el asquez Inst itut e (WCVI). We’re trying to break the drug-related cycle of offenses, incarceration, subsequent unemployability and recidivism in urban communities,” said Senator Mitchell, who chairs

California’s Legislative Black Caucus. “The law isn’t supposed to be a pipeline that disproportionately sucks in the young and unemployed who are most vulnerable to illegal drug traffic.” Mitchell’s bill is cosponsored by nearly a dozen civil rights and criminal justice reform organizations across the state; the Drug Policy Alliance, ACLU of California, A New Way of Life, California State Conference of the NAACP, Californians for Safety and Justice, California Public Defenders Association, California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, Ella Baker Center, Friends Committee on Legislation, National Council for La Raza, and the William C. Velasquez Institute.
