Ed Robinson, Straight Outta Compton, Retires after 33 Years with Edison By Gloria Zuurveen Editor-in-Chief “Congratulations Ed Robinson on your comprehensive tenure with SCE. The community is far greater from your conscientious outreach and economic development, which will surely carry on in your next momentous stride of life. Many blessings, Dean L. Jones, Southland Partnership Corp. LONG BEACH— Jones is one of many who extols the great works Mr. Robinson accomplished over the 33 years at Southern California Edison (SCE) and on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 hundreds were in attendance to pay homage to Mr. Robinson at The Grand Long

During an interview with Mr. Robinson, it was clear as to why so many came out on a Tuesday evening to show their admiration and appreciation for a man of humble beginnings straight out of Compton where he, one of nine children, grew up poor and a welfare child raised by a single mother, who he said, juggled many jobs to provide for the family. He said they didn’t have a whole lot but he remember his mother calling companies and asking for extensions [to pay bills]. When he got to Edison, he said his attitude was that everybody was his mother.

Ed Robinson speaking at his 33 years of service retirement reception on Tues., December 8, 2015. A faith-filled man straight out of Compton who started at the bottom as a file clerk was being honored for 33 years of service after working his way to the position held at retirement as a principal manager of strategic engagement in the Local Public Affairs department. Mr. Robinson said initially when a friend asked him about working at Edison he said he told him, “I don’t want to be a meter readers.” His friend said, “There are more jobs at Edison besides being a meter reader.” Mr. Robinson said he applied and was hired immediately into the position as a file clerk and after six months he moved into customer service. Mr. Robinson said, “Edison is where opportunity and faith comes together.” He said at Edison there have been different and unique opportunities for instance after the 1992 Rodney King verdict Edison owned an old dilapidated service center building in Compton, he became the project manager for the regional training center with a budget of over $5 million dollars and a staff as Edison was one of the corporate partners supporting the Rebuild LA efforts after the riots. During his tenure at Edison, Mr. Robinson said he has taken jobs that no one else wanted because he believe sometimes you have to go places you don’t want to go to get to where you want to be. Robinson said even through he worked as a file clerk he would come to work looking like an executive because he was dressing for the part that he wanted to be in some day although he faced criticism and character assassination by many of his peers. He said he didn’t care because he wanted to be someone who made a difference. His philosophy proved to be true and he made a difference especially for boys at Verbum Dei High School where he and his SCE team participated in an internship program for boys. He also made a difference for 19

Mr. Robinson's, soft spoken nature, kind heart, willing spirit, and rock solid integrity not only made room, but has left an everlasting impact on one of Corporate America's giants called Southern California Edison.

Hello Everyone, Trump is a trip and his rhetoric recently about the Muslims is no laughing matter. It is serious matter especially for anyone who doesn’t fit the “Trumpite Mold” that is White Americans. Lest we forget it was long ago that it was us as a people, Black people who were castrated and separated placed to ghettos and had no where to go in these United States of America. Today, the ugly head of racism has erected and standing firm in its belief similar to that of Adolf Hitler when he conspired with likeminded souls to commit horrific crimes against humanity. So as you listen to Trump and watch him trip on evils words of exclusion, don’t be deceived thinking that it is an illusion. It is not. The mind of Trump and his “Trumpites” are serious about their intentions. But we must remember the words of the late Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was a victim of people like the Trumpites who feared change and freedom of an enslaved Black people, Dr. King said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Where do we stand with all the rhetoric from the Trumpites? How do we measure up in times like these?

Leaders Provide Vision — Not Division By Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr. Leaders provide vision. They help people understand where they are, how they got there and what they must do to go forward. They help calm nerves and strengthen courage. They are steady in times of trouble, inspiring in times of demoralization. Donald Trump’s reaction to the terrorist acts in Egypt, Lebanon, Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., both divides and weakens us. And for the most part, his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination have allowed him to lead the Republican Party and its run to the White House to ignominy. Americans are understandably worried. We have been fighting wars in the Middle East for over a decade. We lost thousands of lives and spent literally trillions of dollars in a wrong-headed war of choice in Iraq. We toppled the Taliban in Afghanistan, Saddam Hussein in Iraq, Muammar Qaddafi in Libya, producing failed states and generating more terrorists. Now we are trying to take out Assad in Syria even as his mortal enemy ISIS takes credit for terrorist horrors in Paris and Beirut. The violence keeps spreading; the terrorists keep reviving. And Americans grow more and more worried. The task of leadership is to provide clarity, and a strategy that quells fears and offers a way out. Mr. Trump has chosen instead to foster greater fear, to divide us one from another, while calling on us to abandon our own values. It is time for people of conscience to once more stand up. We are not in a war with our brothers and sisters of the Muslim faith. They are neighbors and friends. Some volunteer to defend this country. American Muslims despise ISIS and the way the terrorists distort and disgrace their religion. We should not lock our doors or close our hearts to those who are the victims of ISIS and the terror in Syria and Iraq whatever their reli-
gion or tribe. The threat to lock out Muslims is harmful, hurtful and divisive. It is immoral and perversely counterproductive. There are more Muslims in the world than Christians. There are more Muslims than Americans. ISIS may declare war on Western civilization, but that just illustrates their madness. We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with terrorists who threaten our people. We want to enlist the overwhelming majority of Muslims to stand with us, not provoke them to stand against us. In this Christmas season, we should not forget that after his birth in a manger, Jesus was a refugee, fleeing into Egypt with his parents from the threat of Roman violence. He taught us to care for the stranger on the Jericho Road, not spurn and scorn him. I grew up under segregation, locked out because of the color of my skin. The race test was hurtful because I could never pass it. The same is true of the call to exclude all Muslims. We must speak forcefully against those who would mindlessly impose a religion test for entry into the U.S., and those who would call for closing down Mosques or cracking down on places where Muslims gather peacefully. America will not defeat terrorism by dividing one from another. Terror is the weapon of the weak. For a people with hope, the hate of ISIS has no attraction. For people who are integrated into a society, ISIS’ call to violence goes unanswered. ISIS calls for jihad, arguing that the West is waging war on Islam. We need to isolate the terrorists, not inflate them. We need to give lie to their calumnies, not provide evidence for them. Anyone who aspires to lead this country ought to demonstrate that they will respect and defend the values on which it has been built. In this time of trouble, Mr. Trump and many of his rivals are denigrating the very principles that make America strong.
Donald Trump’s American and World History Review By Lee A. Daniels, NNPA Columnist Isn’t it time to acknowledge the contribution Donald Trump has made to American, and indeed, world history? That is that for all the momentous progress of the last few decades, it’s still possible for a crude, racist demagogue to capture the hearts and minds of a significant segment of White American voters. Trump has proved that if you’ve got the knack for telling the brazen lie and expressing a bullyboy cruelty that is both juvenile and adult, you can still go far in American politics. Of course, Trump, an extreme narcissist, is after a very personal redemption, too. After all, who can forget the President Obama-delivered humiliation he suffered in the spring of 2011 when his attempt to hold high the banner of the anti-Obama “Birtherites” ended in gales of laughter at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? But the game he’s playing now has much larger stakes. Donald Trump is the anti-democracy avatar of modernday America. He represents America’s tradition of exclusion – the evil twin to the tradition of inclusion that some Americans love to pretend is the sole representative of the spirit of America. His careening this way and that to attack anyone and anything his mob of supporters will hoot at is a powerful reminder of how thin the commitment to democracy and decency has always been in this society. It’s not a coincidence, historically speaking, that the rhetorical rampages – heavily focused on Americans of color and foreign nationals of color – which so excite Trump’s near lily-White base of supporters come at the end of the nation’s commemoration of significant anniversaries of both the Civil War and the climactic years of the Civil Rights Movement, two historical moments when decency temporarily won out over racism. Nor is the fact that Trump has captured a large segment of Republican voters just when the two-term tenure of the nation’s first Black president has symbolized the present and future diversity of American society. Trump’s slogan that he’ll “make America great again” begs an entire history-book worth of questions and answers about what American society really looked like when it was allegedly “great.” In fact, Trump’s entire campaign is a reminder of how the tradition of exclusion – the underside of “American exceptionalism” – worked in the past. In his vicious slurs against un-
documented Mexican immigrants, one hears the echoes of the government and private sectors’ past exploitation of undocumented Mexican farm laborers. And one can also recall the earlier WASP grandees’ labeling as “inconceivable aliens” the First Nations’ peoples who originally settled the land and the Irish and eastern and southern Europeans who formed the 19th and early-20th century immigrant floodtide. In his “Big Lie” that nearly all Whites who are murdered are slain by Blacks and his casual approval of the “roughing up” of a Black heckler at a campaign rally, Trump reminded us how quickly in the past Whites resorted to violence against Blacks. His speech this month to the Republican Jewish Coalition – full of old, shopworn stereotypes about Jews – was stunning evidence of how many prejudices against people who are “not like” him Trump harbors. And his call to ban all foreign nationals who are Muslim from entering the U.S. recalls the numerous instances when America’s White majority declared war on an entire racial or ethnic group: casting Africans and African-Americans into the gulag of slavery and then Jim Crow; barring Chinese (and other Asians) via the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882; denying entry to many European Jews fleeing the Nazis in the 1930s; and imprisoning in concentration camps Japanese-Americans and Japanese nationals during World War II. These and other echoes of the past prove that Trump’s campaign is an old, not a new, phenomenon. His “special” talents are like those of past demagogues who’ve risen to prominence on the American scene: the bluster of a carnival barker, the oiliness’ of a trickster, an overweening ego, and a lack of decency. Of course, these “qualities” go a long way with the Republican electorate. Last week’s Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 42 percent of Republicans support Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the US. Only 36 percent oppose it. By contrast, 75 percent of Democrats and 55 percent of Independents oppose such a ban. Ironically, what is new about Trump the presidential candidate is that the Republican Party made his campaign possible. It was the GOP that increasingly over the decades played the right-wing-extremist and White-supremacy “cards” Trump has used to beat the GOP establishment candidates. It was the GOP that used the Citizens United case the Supreme Court decided in 2010 to destroy the restraints on the financing of political campaigns, a development that made Trump’s largely selffinanced campaign possible. So, it’s really the GOP itself that is responsible for the damage Trump is doing to the party – and to the nation.

CHURCH & COMMUNITY NEWS No Place Like Church for the Holidays By Carol Pipes NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Christmas is a great time to invite someone to church, according to a recent study by Nashville-based LifeWay Research. In a recent poll of 1,000 Americans, LifeWay Research found six out of 10 Americans typically attend church at Christmastime. But among those who don’t attend church at Christmastime, a majority (57 percent) say they would likely attend if someone they knew invited them. “Regular churchgoers may assume the rest of America has already made up their mind not to attend church,” said Scott McConnell, vice president of LifeWay Research. “In reality, many would welcome going to a Christmas service with someone they know.” Americans living in the South (66 percent) and Midwest (64 percent) are more likely to attend church at Christmastime than those in the Northeast (57 percent) and West (53 percent). And throughout the U.S., more women than men are likely to attend Christmas church services (66 percent vs. 56 percent). Those who attend church most frequently throughout the year (once a week or more) are the most likely (91 percent) to say they will attend church at Christmastime. Younger Americans are less likely to participate in a service or Christmas mass than their elders. Fifty-three percent of those 18 to 24 say they attend church at Christmas, compared to 68 percent of those 65 and older and 67 percent of 35- to 44-year-olds. For those who do go to church at Christmas, the most frequent reason for attending is clear—to honor Jesus. When asked, “For you personally, which of the following is the primary reason you attend church at Christmastime?” 77 percent chose “to honor Jesus.” Other reasons Americans chose lagged considerably with 9 percent saying they attend church at Christmastime to be with family and friends, another 9 percent say
The Village WORD for the Week By Rev. Frank Jackson, Jr. God Morning Family!!! “It may be that the Lord will work for us.” (1Sa 14:6 NKJV– PART I)
Has The phrase “MAYBE IT WON’T…” Ever Stopped You From Pursuing The Promises Of God? Jonathan, King Saul’s son, was pursuing a Philistine garrison. No prophet had spoken. He had no word from the Lord to confirm that he was going to win the battle. He simply said to his armor bearer, “Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised: it may be that the Lord will work for us.” Now, this doesn’t give you license to go off and do your own thing, then ask God to back you up. Clearly, Jonathan was fighting on the side of the Lord’s people so he knew that God was with him. But without specific, detailed direction he stepped out on a “maybe.” Did it work? Yes. When Jonathan and his armor bearer killed twenty of the Philistines, it threw the opposing force into such confusion that they started killing one another, and Israel came out on top. Solomon said, “He who observes the wind will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap” (Ecc 11:4 NKJV). In other words, if you wait for perfect conditions you’ll neither attempt nor accomplish anything. Yes, it would be wonderful if God always gave us specific directions. But often He leads by an idea or an impression that begins to grow inside you, and as it strengthens and persists you start to think, “MAYBE THIS IS WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO DO.” We like the guaranteed outcome (and income): My grandmother always reminded me there were only two guarantees in life (1) I was going to stay Black, and (2) I was going to die, and everything else in life required prayer and faith. We’re comfortable with the certain, absolute deal, with no risk of failure or loss. But you’re going to face a “maybe” more times than you will have guarantees. And it’s those times of uncertainty that strengthen your faith, your resolve, your courage, and your prayer life. THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: GOD’S PROMISES ARE A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!!! to observe tradition, and 3 percent to get in the Christmas spirit. Even among the 29 percent of nonreligious who typically attend church at Christmastime, 47 percent say it’s to honor Jesus, 20 percent say they do so to observe tradition, 27 percent to be with
friends and family, and 6 percent to get in the Christmas spirit. “Those invited to a church service at Christmastime, may not attend for the same reasons as those who already plan to go. But the majority are open to going,” McConnell noted.

HEALTH & COMMUNITY NEWS Heart Disease Now Kills 1 of Every 3 Americans By Robert Preidt HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay News) - One-third of deaths in the United States are caused by heart disease, stroke and other heart-related diseases, a report released Wednesday says. Heart disease and stroke are also the leading causes of death worldwide, the report showed. In 2013, cardiovascular disease killed 801,000 Americans, the American Heart Association (AHA) report found. These are deaths from stroke and all heartrelated conditions, which include heart attacks, heart failure, and valve and artery diseases. Coronary heart disease alone caused 370,000 deaths in the United States that year,
the AHA said. About 795,000 people in the United States had a stroke in 2013. These strokes caused nearly 129,000 deaths. Approximately 750,000 Americans had a heart attack in 2013. Those heart attacks resulted in 116,000 deaths in 2013, the researchers said. The report also noted significant racial differences. The risk of first-stroke in blacks is nearly twice that of whites, according to the report. The research found that almost half of all black people have some form of heart or stroke-related disease. The researchers looked at heart disease risk factors, too. They found that despite a 30 percent fall in smoking since 1998, nearly
A Dilemma By Dean L. Jones, CPM Living with a mindset that you cannot afford to eat healthy should not be a worrisome dilemma as part of a free society. Except, for too many it does exist sometimes producing a necessity to cut down on the number meals consumed per day in order to reduce and possibly avoid consuming bad calories. It is common place seeing the shrinking value of food sold in major grocery stores, particularly when you compare prices on nutrient valuable food versus valueless foodstuff. For example, $5 can buy a limited 20-22 fresh oranges with fiber, essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, in contrast [for the same amount of money] to the ease with which you can buy five gallons of orange drink containing 2400 grams (600 teaspoons) of hazardous processed sugar. Feeding a family that much processed sugar has a high potential to negatively affect anyone's health, potentially contracting any number of seventy-five or so diseases. Specifically, excessive process sugar consumption can harm the liver organ, as the liver uses the fructose in sugar to create fat. Consequently, eating disproportionate amounts of processed sugary-filled foodstuff can cause a fatty buildup, thereby leading to liver disease. Liver disease is normally associated with something brought about from overdrinking potent alcoholic beverages. But when you take into account the access to buy good food one has to stay active in knowing how poor choices are simple to make. For instance, many less affluent neighborhoods have monosodium glutamate (MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, yeast extract, or soy extract) in many packaged and prepared foods, from chips, diet drinks, to the notorious Chinese deli's situated in urban neighborhoods throughout the country. Processed sugar consumption can put on extra weight, and fat can build up in liver cells, which can

Dean L. Jones lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This disorder makes the liver swell and over time can harden scar tissue so much that it replaces healthy tissue, a condition medically classified as cirrhosis of the liver. Essentially there is no cure, except eating more healthy items together with exercise has the greatest potential to reverse the disease. It is reported by science that one hundred years ago, the average American took in about 15 grams of fructose a day (about half an ounce), most of it from eating fruits and vegetables. However, today the average American consumes four or five times that amount, almost all of it from the processed sugars used to make breakfast cereals, pastries, sodas, fruit drinks, and other sweet foodstuff and beverages. Getting everyone to have some kind of healthcare is part of a concerted effort to handle the growing number of serious cases related to obesity, heart disease, some cancers and type II diabetes (Globally, 300 million people are diabetic).

19 percent of men and 15 percent of women in the United States still smoked in 2014. In that year, about onethird of adults said they didn't do any physical activity outside of work. Between 2003-2004 and 2011-2012, the proportion of Americans eating a healthy diet rose from 0.2 percent to 0.6 percent among children and from 0.7 percent to 1.5 percent among adults. Even so, nearly 160 million Americans were overweight or obese (69 percent of adults and 32 percent of children) in 2009-2012, the research revealed.During that time, about 17 percent of adults (13 million) were obese, according to the AHA's 2016 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics
Update. From 2009-2012, almost half of Americans had total cholesterol of 200 mg/ dL or higher. And, one-third (80 million) of Americans had high blood pressure, the report said. Nine percent of Americans have been diagnosed with diabetes and 35 percent have prediabetes, the AHA noted. Forty-six percent of black women and 45 percent of black men have high blood pressure, according to the report.The researchers also found that 31 percent of all deaths worldwide are caused by heart or stroke-related disease. Eighty percent of such deaths occurred in low- and middle-income nations. Stroke causes nearly 12 per-
cent of all deaths worldwide, the report noted. Nearly 17 million people had a first stroke in 2010, according to the AHA report. "We've made progress in the fight against cardiovascular disease, but the battle is not won," said AHA President Dr. Mark Creager, director of the Heart and Vascular Center at DartmouthHitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. "We need to maintain our vigor and resolve in promoting good cardiovascular health through lifestyle and recognition and treatment of risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking," he said in an AHA news release.

BUSINESS & COMMUNITY NEWS What You Can Do To Protect Yourself From Card Fraud in 2016 (BPT) - You may have already received your new credit or debit card equipped with a microchip. If you haven't received your new chip card, you most likely will by the time your card expires. The EMV chip technology is intended to help reduce debit and credit card fraud, and thanks to a collaboration between America's payment networks and card-issuers, you'll see many more merchants using EMV-equipped card readers over the coming months. Chip-enabled cards store the same basic information that's already in the magnetic strip on the back of your card, such as the card number and expiration date. They add a layer of fraud protection by producing a single-use code to validate every transaction. While EMV technology is intended to reduce card fraud, it's still important to be aware of how fraud happens, what you can do to prevent it and what your cardissuer does to help protect you. "Fraud prevention is a partnership between cardholders and the bank," said Pam Codispoti, president of Chase Consumer Branded Cards. "By working together, we can help customers keep their accounts safer and more secure." Chase offers some tips to help you stay alert to fraud while you holiday shop and in
the New Year: * Keep your contact information, including phone number and email address, up to date so the card issuer can contact you quickly if they detect signs of fraud on your account. * Review your card agreement to be sure you understand what anti-fraud measures the issuer takes. For example, Chase uses specialized monitoring tools to keep an eye on your account 24/7. * If your card company or bank offers it, sign up for account alerts to monitor your finances and keep your accounts safe. Most issuers will allow
you to choose to be alerted to any unusual account activity via text, email or phone call. * Review your statements every month to ensure all charges are accurate and authorized by you. If you spot a charge you don't recognize, contact the card issuer or bank immediately. With the shift to greater use of EMV technology, if fraud occurs on your account and you have a chip-enabled card, the merchant will be responsible for the costs in most situations. Also, banks like Chase offer zero liability protection - you won't be held responsible for unauthorized charges made with your
card or account information. * Monitor your credit reports. Although you're entitled to a free report from all three major credit bureaus once a year, checking your report more often can help catch signs of fraud earlier. * Opt for secure paperless billing. Theft of paper documents, such as from your mailbox or trash, is still a top way fraudsters obtain information. By going paperless, you eliminate an opportunity for someone to steal your statement and get your account information. * Switch to secure online or mobile payments to
help protect your account information. Online payments add layers of security to your transaction and can help ensure you never miss a payment. * When using your card in a store, never allow the card out of your sight. If you have to enter a PIN number to use the card, be aware of who's standing around you and shield the keypad from view when you type in your PIN.

NATIONAL/STATE & REGIONAL NEWS Schools Around U.S. Receive Hoax Threats; Two Arrested in Indiana By Fiona Ortiz and Suzannah Gonzales A rash of email and phone threats of violence hit schools on Thursday from New Jersey to Washington, D.C., and from Florida to California, but most were deemed to be hoaxes and schools opened. However, three suburban Indianapolis school districts reported potentially serious threats, with two districts shutting down on Thursday and another canceling classes for Friday. Overnight, two students from Danville High School west of Indianapolis were arrested, accused of a separate set of threats made on Wednesday
before the social media threats that prompted the closures. Officials were on heightened alertness after the deadly attacks in San Bernardino, California, on Dec. 2. On Tuesday, Los Angeles shut down schools over emailed threats that later were deemed a hoax. School districts in Houston, Dallas, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and San Francisco all decided on Thursday that emailed threats were not credible and were similar to ones sent to schools in New York City and Los Angeles earlier this week. All-clears were given after bomb threats on Thursday
Congresswoman Waters Delivers Remarks at the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce 14th Annual State of the Region Event LOS ANGELES – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA43), Ranking Member of the Committee on Financial Services, and Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-33) delivered remarks at the 14th Annual State of the Region event sponsored by the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce on Monday, December 14th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Torrance-South Bay in Torrance. Congresswoman Waters and Congressman Lieu were invited by the Chamber to give updates about the legislation and economic development opportunity affecting the South Bay region. Congresswoman Waters opened her remarks by giving an update on budget negotiations in Congress. She informed the audience of the continuing negotiations in Congress pertaining to finalizing a budget and educated them on policy riders that jeopardize negotiations. In addition, Congresswoman Waters discussed the impending interest rate increase being discussed by Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen. As Ranking Member of the Financial Services Committee, Congresswoman Waters’ remarks focused on the historic efforts she led to renew the Export-Import Bank, which provides critical support to the United States exporters looking to compete and sell products to foreign markets. Some of those suppliers such as Boeing and Space X are in the South Bay Region. “We worked with a diverse coalition, including The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, small businesses and labor groups such as the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers to ensure the Bank could get back to the business of growing jobs and supporting American exporters,” said Congresswoman Waters. The Congresswoman also discussed job creation, business development and major developments in the South Bay Region, such as the $200 million dollar renovation of the Del Amo Mall in Torrance and the football stadium in Inglewood that is scheduled to open in 2018. “These new developments and initiatives will bring more revenue to the region. When
the local economy thrives, more people in this region will start businesses and even more jobs are created,” said Congresswoman Waters. Homelessness was also a major focus. The Congresswoman discussed the work she has done to increase federal investments in public housing, homeless and rental housing assistance for vulnerable population. Congresswoman Waters guided the passage of the reauthorization of the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance program, and worked to support federal funding for programs such as the Los Angeles County Continuum. The Congresswoman also fought to ensure that federal funds support permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless veterans and seniors. “Homelessness is a major issue across the country, especially among veterans. I am determined to ensure that the men and women who valiantly serve this country have homes. Vermont Villas in Harbor Gateway is a new development that recently opened due to private and public sector funding to reduce the number of homeless veterans and elderly residents living on the streets. We need more developments of this kind across the country, and I have focused my efforts to achieve this goal,” said the Congresswoman. The Congresswoman also discussed the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) that Congress recently passed. The FAST Act includes $3.7 billion in bus and bus facilities funding, a 75 percent increase over current funding levels that will help transit agencies in the South Bay region. “I am pleased that this additional funding will help agencies such as the Torrance Transit in the City of Torrance, and GTrans in the City of Gardena to expand and improve services and reduce traffic congestion,” stated the Congresswoman. At the conclusion of her remarks, Congresswoman Waters complimented the Torrance Chamber of Commerce and the other Chambers of Commerce in the area for the work they do to improve the business climate and the care they have shown by providing resources for the vulnerable in our society such as the homeless.
at East Orange Campus High School in New Jersey and at Anacostia and Frank W. Ballou Senior high schools in Washington, D.C., according to officials. At least two of those schools were temporarily evacuated. "MORE OF A LOCAL SITUATION" The Indiana threats appeared to be different from the hoax emails sent to the larger school districts elsewhere in the country, Danville Community School Corporation Superintendent Tracy Shafer told Reuters. "This seems to be more of a local situation and the perceived threats were posted to social media and were specific to our schools," Shafer said. Earlier, Danville Police Chief William Wright told reporters at a news conference that two Danville Community High School students, a freshman and a senior, were arrested after midnight on Thursday "due to threats received through social media." He said the two juveniles could be charged with intimidation and other crimes. Wright and Shafer both said that further threats were made on Facebook after the arrests, apparently by another person who is still being sought. The later threats involved schools in Plainfield and Danville, prompting both districts to shut schools on Thursday.
Plainfield has six schools and about 5,400 students, while Danville has four schools and about 2,500 students. South of Indianapolis, Franklin Community Schools, with close to 5,000 students at eight schools, evacuated its high school due to a threat on Thursday afternoon and said all of its schools would be closed on Friday. FLORIDA, TEXAS, CALIFORNIA THREATS NOT CREDIBLE School officials in Texas, Florida and California said they increased school security to be on the safe side. "At this time, we do not believe the threat is credible, but as a precautionary measure, law enforcement officers are in the process of conducting random sweeps of school district buildings to ensure student safety," the Houston Independent School District, with about 215,000 students, said in a statement. In a move criticized by some law enforcement officials as an overreaction, officials in Los Angeles, the nation's second -largest school district, canceled classes for 640,000 public school students on Tuesday over a threatened attack with bombs and guns that was later deemed a hoax. New York City officials said they received a nearly iden-
tical threat to public schools but dismissed the message and kept schools open. A spokeswoman for Broward County Public Schools in South Florida said the district's police department immediately communicated an emailed threat it received late Wednesday to federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. "At this juncture, the threat is deemed as less than credible," said Tracy Clark, school district spokeswoman, adding additional security had been deployed to schools as a precautionary measure. The district has more than 265,000 students. The Dallas Independent School District, with approximately 160,000 students, also said it would keep schools open. San Francisco Public Schools said the emailed threat was "non-specific," and an FBI search of school buildings uncovered nothing suspicious.
