Joint Meeting Between Agencies on the Horizon Flynn suggests the meeting after council members approves the budget

By Chris Frost Special to the Tri County Sentry

We've had a heavy agenda for the last couple of years … and I think we've done a good job at it.

The Oxnard City Council discussed the possibility of a joint meeting between departments and outside agencies to address issues moving forward during its May 8, meeting.

M

AYOR Tim Flynn said he was going to be terse and to the point about the issue and said some of the agencies that have requested meetings with the city council are at the meeting. "I forgot to acknowledge that Jon Sharkey has been a member of the Port Hueneme City Council, and he has been on the city council for a long time," he said. "His institutional knowledge is appreciated. We see that in the comments he made on public works related issues." Flynn said some agencies had lobbied every council member for a joint meeting.

Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn

Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn "We've had a heavy agenda for the last couple of years," he said. "Just to get through our own business, not the business of other neighboring agencies, but it is very cumbersome, and I think we've done a good job at it." Flynn said he didn't want to take away from the efficiencies of the meetings and they consistently end around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday

night. "My idea is after we pass the budget, and we are going to be extremely busy until July 1, that we find a way that we can schedule either a Saturday morning meeting," he said. Flynn said he was completely open to any format and discussing the issues. "I think it's important that at a minimum, we have a joint meeting with the Port Hueneme City Council and I am just making a suggestion that it would go no more than two hours." He said there needs to be a specific agenda. "Four months down the road,

we can get our two staffs working together, so it is fully vetted." He said if they can't get the meeting done by July, they should wait until September. "Just so we are prepared, and it has results," he said. Flynn said the other agency asking for a meeting is the port. "They have a variety of issues they have brought to our attention," he said. "They have delegations of two members of the port that have met with two members the council, we have members of the port that have met individually with us, but one way or the other, we have a lot of mutual interest, and we have interests that sometimes collide." He said the two entities need to work together better and promote economic development for both. "In the case of Hueneme, just on the utilities and infrastructure projects, there is a synergy not only with Port Hueneme but other neighboring cities," he said. Councilman Oscar Madrigal agrees with the mayor. "I think we need to have these meetings," he said. "I know another issue is with the school district, specifically the Oxnard School n Meeting, see page 7

Council Reviews Earthquake Damage Potential Seismologist advocates preparedness

By Chris Frost Special to the Tri County Sentry Maintaining a standard of living through an earthquake was examined during the Oxnard City Council meeting May 15, as the group learned about the potential damage such an event can mean. Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones Center from The Center for Science and Society discussed the earthquake risk in Oxnard. She said people worry about the faults and grounds. “What’s really at stake is not so much our safety, but the future of our cities,” she said. Risks include where the faults are and how they are triggered, shaking, landslides and liquefaction (water in the soil). "That's what the earth does," she said. She said buildings could be made stronger. Building codes aren't retroactive, Jones said, so the building is only as good as the code that was in place when they built it and that increases the risk. The California State Legislature has bill AB 1857 before the body, she said, which mandates functional building codes for after an earthquake. "Buildings that aren't disposable," she said. "The estimate is that it will increase the cost of construction by 1 percent." She said they could reduce how people will suffer by how they respond. "That's where most people emotionally put the earthquake issue," she said. People look at earthquakes at

What’s really at stake is not so much our safety, but the future of our cities, Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones the moment it shakes, Jones said, and they fear that event. "This is incredibly important, but it's not the total story," she said. The other factor, she said, is having the will to recover. "When we look at what disasters do to communities, what we see is just not the moment, but how they respond to it and what happens afterward," she said. Communities and elected officials that respond quickly and keep people in place, she said, are more successful. "You then have a city where you can come back," she said. Other cities have an earthquake and too much happens, she said, and they can't get it back together. "They can have long-term consequences that can go on forever," she said. In Ventura County, she said people live on the edge of the plate boundary. We're talking about large pieces of the earth's crust, which is moving in respect to each other, and very importantly,

it's not straight here," she said. "If the San Andreas fault were completely straight, we'd move one side past the other and have one big earthquake at certain intervals, and that would be it," she said. Jones likened the fault to two pieces of glass that someone tries to push past each other and develops a kink. "They get broken up, and then you have to sweep the chards around the corner," she said. "Ventura County has the highest risk outside of the San Andreas fault itself." Jones said there are dozens of faults in the region. "Because they are dipping on top of each other, there is no place in this area that isn't sitting on top of each other," she said. "Many of them are moving quite quickly." She said the length of a fault determines the earthquake's magnitude. "If a fault is only 30 kilometer's long, you have a hard time getting an earthquake that is 6.5," she said. "If it's 1,000 kilometers long, you can have a magnitude

8.5." She said there are several faults in the region, and some of them connect to each other. "We have the potential for at least a magnitude 7.5 (earthquake) under this region," she said. Magnitude does not implicate what will happen to a resident, Jones said, but seismic intensity, illustrated on "shake maps" will. She reviewed a 7.2 magnitude earthquake called "El Mayor Cucaipa" the occurred in Mexico in 2010 and a 6.7 magnitude earthquake in Northridge in 1994. "The 7.2 is on a longer fault," she said. Jones said she doesn't know what earthquake will be next. "You probably care about the next 10 years, and that is a random subset of the big picture," she said. She said there would probably be another earthquake in the Ventura County area in the next 50 years. Jones said the San Andreas fault is the fastest moving and averages approximately 100 years between earthquakes on any one piece. In the Ventura County area, she said there are basins that trap the shaking during an earthquake. "Because you are in the flats, that means the soil underneath you is loose, and when the waves come off the San Andreas or whatever fault and move into here, they will slow down as they move into loose soils," she said. With that said, the waves will still carry the same amount of n Earthquake, see page 7

South African Photographer of Iconic Protest Image Dies By Andrew Meldrum JOHANNESBURG—Tributes are being paid following the death of Sam Nzima, the South African photographer who took the iconic image of a Black high school student carrying a fatally wounded fellow pupil away from the gunfire of apartheid police in 1976. Nzima, 83, died Saturday night in a hospital in the northwestern city of Nelspruit, said his son, Thulani Nzima. The photographer had collapsed two days earlier but did not recover in the hospital, he said. Nzima's photograph of the Soweto student uprising galvanized international public opinion against apartheid, South Africa's system of racial discrimination that ended in 1994. The compelling photo shows 16-year-old Mbuyisa Makhubu carrying the crumpled body of 13-year-old Hector Pieterson, as Pieterson's sister reacts in horror. “Sam Nzima was one of a kind,” said President Cyril Ramaphosa, in a statement Sunday. “His camera captured the full brutality of apartheid oppression on the nation's psyche and history.” Nzima's photo of the dying Pieterson “caused the world to come to terms with the ... evil of the apartheid system,” said South Africa's ruling party, the African National Congress, in a statement. “This came at a price to Nzima who was subjected to countless acts of intimidation.” Harassed by the apartheid regime, Nzima resigned from The World newspaper and left Johannesburg for his hometown Lilydale, where he was placed under house arrest for 19 months. Nzima said that for many years he regretted taking the photo because it destroyed his career in journalism. But he became proud when he saw the lasting influence of his photo and its contribution to ending apartheid, he said. In 1998 Nzima won the copyright

Sam Nzima … caused the world to come to terms with the evil of the apartheid system. for the much reproduced photo. In his later years he taught photography to young students in rural Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga Province. Nzima's photo is the centerpiece of the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum which shows history

of the Soweto students' uprising on June 16, 1976. The museum was opened in Soweto in 2002 and is one of South Africa's most visited sites. Pieterson's sister, Antoinette, whose grief is captured in the photo, has for many years been a guide at the museum. In 2011 Nzima was awarded South Africa's Order of Ikhamanga, which honors South Africans who excel in the arts, culture and journalism. Nzima's photo was named one of the 100 most influential photographs in history by Time Magazine in 2016. “Suddenly the world could no longer ignore apartheid,” wrote Time. “The seeds of international opposition that would eventually topple the racist system had been planted by a photograph.”

Starbucks Changes Bathroom Policy Following Racial Firestorm WASHINGTON—Starbucks has adopted an open-bathroom policy following the arrest last month of two African American men at a coffee shop in Philadelphia. Chairman Howard Schultz says he doesn't want the company to become a public bathroom, but feels employees can make the “right decision a hundred percent of the time,” if that choice is removed at the store level. One of the men

came into even sharper focus after another video, taken in January, emerged. The video shows a Black man claiming he was denied access to a bathroom at a Starbucks in California while a white man was allowed entry. Neither man had made a purchase, according to the video shot by Brandon Ward, which is posted on his Facebook page. Schultz, speaking at the Atlantic Council in Wa s h i n g t on o n

a r re s t e d on April 12 was denied use of a bathroom. He and his partner sat down to await a business meeting they had scheduled at the store, but were arrested minutes later by police. The incident was captured by people using cell phones and it went viral. The arrest of Rashon Nelson, along with his childhood friend and business partner, Donte Robinson, set off a firestorm for the company, which will shut down more than 8,000 of its U.S. stores on the afternoon of May 29 to instruct 175,000 employees how to better recognize unconscious bias. Access to store bathrooms, for which Schultz said Starbucks had maintained a “loose policy,”

Thursday, said previous policy required a purchase, but that the decision was ultimately left with store managers, The Washington, The Seattle Times, and other media outlets reported. The arrests in Philadelphia were a major embarrassment for Starbucks, which has long projected itself as a socially conscious company. Nelson and Robinson settled with Starbucks earlier this month for an undisclosed sum and an offer of a free college education. Separately, they reached a deal with Philadelphia for a symbolic $1 each and a promise from city officials to set up a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs.

California Counties Sue Drug Makers Over Opioid Epidemic SACRAMENTO—Dozens of California counties are suing drug makers and pharmacy chains that officials say created a public nuisance by manufacturing and distributing prescription painkillers they say contributed to the deaths of 64,000 people in the United States in 2016 alone.

The lawsuit is part of a nationwide effort by local governments to seek repayment for money spent to deal with the epidemic.

T

HE Sacramento Bee reported that Sacramento, Placer and 10 other Northern California counties filed a lawsuit this week in federal court in Sacramento alleging that racketeering and fraud by the companies led to the nation's opioid epidemic. Officials say 30 California counties are expected to file such lawsuits. “The number of annual opioid prescriptions written in the United States is now roughly equal to the number of adults in the population,” the 322-page lawsuit said. “Many Americans are now addicted to

prescription opioids, and the number of deaths due to prescription opioid overdose is unacceptable.” The lawsuit is part of a nationwide effort by local governments to seek

Smithsonian Museum to Install Henrietta Lacks Portrait WASHINGTON—A portrait of Henrietta Lacks, whose cells were taken without her consent and widely used in groundbreaking research, will be installed at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. The portrait was painted by Kadir Nelson and jointly acquired by the gallery and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Lacks died of cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins University, where researchers discovered her cells reproduced indefinitely in test tubes. HeLa cells have since contributed to the treatment of thousands of patients and many scientific breakthroughs, from

the polio vaccine to genetic technology, even as her family struggled without health care. Lacks remained virtually unknown until a journalist spent years investigating and writing a bestseller, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.”

Marley's Granddaughter Wants Accountability for Police Stop By Deepti Hajela NEW YORK—Bob Marley's granddaughter said last week that she felt like her life was put in danger when a woman saw her and three friends leaving an Airbnb rental in California, got suspicious and called the police. Donisha Prendergast and her friends, Kelly Fyffe-Marshall and Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan, all of whom are Black, plus an additional friend who is white, were leaving the home in Rialto on April 30 when a white neighbor called 911 and reported strangers carrying bags out of the house. Police officers stopped the renters and questioned them for 22 minutes while they contacted the homeowner. Rialto Police released body camera video footage showing that the officers were polite and professional. They never drew their weapons. Some engaged in joking chatter with the renters while they checked out their story. Prendergast, though, said at a news conference Thursday in New York that she felt she was singled out because she is Black. She cited instances where innocent Black

people have been shot by police. “Do you not understand how you jeopardized our lives because of your fear?” she asked. “Just because I'm living here to tell this story doesn't make it any more right.” She quoted her famous singersongwriter grandfather: “We don't need more trouble, what we need is love.” Lawyers for Prendergast, FyffeMarshall and Olafimihan have said they plan to sue over the incident. At the news conference, Prendergast said the police should be investigated for how they handled the situation. So should the neighbor who called police in the first place, she said. Fyffe-Marshall, who is a filmmaker, posted a short video of part of the encounter on Facebook, writing that they were “surrounded” by seven police cars and told to put their hands in the air. The longer video released by Rialto police captured a cordial interaction, though one in which the Black renters questioned whether the 911 call was racially motivated and expressed frustration that it was taking so long to clear up the situation.

repayment for money spent to deal with the epidemic, Placer County attorney Brett Holt said. It claims there were 1,925 opioidrelated deaths in California in 2016

and blames the makers of such drugs for “false, deceptive and unfair marketing” that made opioids the most prescribed class of drugs, generating $11 billion in revenues for

drug companies in 2010. A spokesman for the Healthcare Distribution Alliance, which represents distributors named in the lawsuits, said the lawsuits are misplaced. “The misuse and abuse of prescription opioids is a complex public health challenge that requires a collaborative and systemic response that engages all stakeholders,” said vice president John Parker. He said the idea that drug distributors are responsible for the number of opioid prescriptions “defies common sense and lacks understanding of how the pharmaceutical supply chain actually works and is regulated.”

‘This Is America' Seals Glover's Rep as Protest Artist

By Jesse J. Holland WASHINGTON—It's been called a moving testament to modern times and an unflinching exploration of the wretched past experienced by African-Americans. Donald Glover's “This Is America,” a music video that depicts gun violence amid a mélange of racism, Negro minstrel shows, police brutality and mass killing, not only touched off a national debate, it affirmed Glover's place in the pantheon of artists who reveal uncomfortable truths about race through their work. “The themes ain't new but this brings it into fresh (but dark) light,” author and pop critic Luvvie Ajayi said Sunday in her online column. “It turned the mirror on this country and said ‘see your life.' It is a read, an indictment and a challenge.” This terrain is not new for Glover either. Through his award-winning FX show “Atlanta,” which has gotten critical acclaim for its portrayal of Black Southern life, Glover has delved into topics ranging from single parenthood to crime, the pitfalls of fame and recently, youth suicide. As his musical alterego Childish Gambino, Glover performed “This Is America” last weekend while serving as guest host of “Saturday Night Live.” He released the video around the same time. Glover also has been outspoken about his career arc. As “Saturday Night Live” host, he joked about being turned down for the SNL cast in the past despite his many talents. After his “Deadpool” TV project was scrapped earlier this year,

I can't think of any other video that deals with American violence in the way that ‘This Is America' does. Lester Spence, Johns Hopkins University Glover took executives at FX and Marvel to task by releasing a fake Deadpool script in which the main character wonders whether racism was why the project was killed. He later deleted the tweets with his complaints, including the script. Still, Glover's star is rising. He's set to appear in two upcoming Disney properties—the live-action Lion King remake and as Lando Calrissian in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Lester Spence, co-director of the Center for Africana Studies at John Hopkins University, called Glover's “This Is America” an heir to “Strange Fruit,” recorded by Billie Holiday in 1939 to protest lynchings of AfricanAmericans in the South. There have been others: Nina Simone's “Mississippi Goddam,” N.W.A.'s “F--- Tha Police,” Marvin Gaye's “Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology),” Public Enemy's “Fight the Power.” But what sets “This is America” apart, Spence said, is that it “functions as an R&B song but also functions as a really, really powerful ‘Black' with a capital ‘B'

commentary.” “I can't think of any other video that deals with American violence in the way that ‘This Is America' does,” Spence said. The video's imagery is jarring: Police chases, a Black guitar player shot point-blank in the head then dragged away unceremoniously, a Black choir being gunned down mid-song—both times with the weapon treated with kid gloves— all while a shirtless Gambino sings, dances and raps with a smile on his face. He sings: “Yeah, this is America/ Guns in my area/ I got the strap/ I gotta carry ‘em.” At the video's end, he appears to be chased by a white mob. The reactions on social media were swift. “Donald Glover is a Genius,” tweeted singer Erykah Badu, who explored poverty, violence and African-American identity in her 2008 album, “New Amerykah Part One.” Calvin C. Winbush II, who played the murdered guitar player in the video, told REVOLT TV in an interview Monday that he feels the video shows how desensitized America has become to violence against people of color. “In a matter of seconds, (my character) being shot and taken away was shocking,” Winbush said. “We can say that's rude to show that, but this happens for real. ‘He shot up the choir? That's crazy.' This happens for real. This is America.” The general consensus was that “This Is America” was a condemnation of gun violence, which disproportionately affects African Americans. Gun violence is the top killer of African Americans aged 15 to 34, according to the NAACP, and Blacks are nearly half of all gun homicide victims, while making up only 13 percent of the population. “There is a direct commentary on the commonness of gun violence and the rush to protect the gun and not necessarily the rush to understand, to mourn, to really engage with the loss of life, particularly in the area of Black life,” Treva Lindsey, an Ohio State University women's study professor told the AP in an interview. “That is something that is significant here, his drilling down the gun violence conversation distinctly to the loss of Black life.” Glover's use of violence, and the reactions to it from mainstream America, bothered some.

Honoring Birmingham’s Great Children’s Crusade Which Changed Our Nation By Marian Wright Edelman “Daddy,” the boy said, “I don't want to disobey you, but I have made my pledge. If you try to keep me home, I will sneak off. If you think I deserve to be punished for that, I'll just have to take the punishment. For, you see, I'm not doing this only because I want to be free. I'm doing it also because I want freedom for you and Mama, and I want it to come before you die.” This teenage boy overheard talking to his father by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the many hundreds of Birmingham children and youths who 55 years ago this month decided to stand up for their and all our freedom. They stood up to fire hoses and police dogs, went to jail, and finally broke the back of Jim Crow in that city known as “Bombingham.” Last week, Jack and Jill of America, Inc. invited the Children's Defense Fund to come together with them and over 2,000 children, youths and families from across the country in Birmingham’s Civil Rights District to commemorate that inspiring and courageous act of resistance and peaceful protest that played a pivotal role in changing American history. The anniversary celebration of the Birmingham Children's Crusade was designed to remember, honor and follow the example of those frontline child soldiers and transforming catalysts in America’s greatest moral movement of the twentieth century – the movement for civil rights and equal justice. The Children’s Crusade happened at a critical time in the civil rights struggle in Birmingham. In April 1963 the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, together with the Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights and its great and fearless leader Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, had started a direct action desegregation campaign in the city. There were mass meetings, lunch counter sit-ins, nonviolent marches, and boycotts of segregated stores during the busy Easter shopping season. Dr. King became one of several hundred people arrested in the first weeks of the campaign when he was jailed for violating an anti-protest injunction on April 12, Good Friday, and four days later wrote his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” As the days went on with little response from city leaders a new idea was raised: including more children and youths. Children didn’t face some of the risks adults might, including losing breadwinning jobs, and college

students had already proven to be extremely effective activists in cities across the South in desegregating lunch counters. But once it became clear that many of the children volunteering for meetings and training sessions in Birmingham were high school students and some even younger, concern was raised about whether allowing and encouraging them to protest was too dangerous. Dr. King later described the decision this way: “Even though we realized that involving teenagers and highschool students would bring down upon us a heavy fire of criticism, we felt that we needed this dramatic new dimension. Our people were demonstrating daily and going to jail in numbers, but we were still beating our heads against the brick wall of the city officials’ stubborn resolve to maintain the status quo. Our fight, if won, would benefit people of all ages. But most of all we were inspired with a desire to give to our young a true sense of their own stake in freedom and justice. We believed they would have the courage to respond to our call.” The children’s response “exceeded our fondest dreams.” James Bevel, Andrew Young, Bernard Lee, and Dorothy Cotton helped identify and train the students. Black disc jockeys were key allies in encouraging and deploying their listeners. May 2 was “D-Day.” Class presidents, star athletes, and prom queens from local high schools led the way as hundreds of children skipped class, gathered at the 16th Street Baptist Church, and marched into

Marches and protests continued in Birmingham with children leading the way. downtown Birmingham in groups of fifty, organized into lines two by two and singing freedom songs. More than a thousand students marched the first day and many hundreds were arrested. Virulently racist police commissioner Bull Connor’s overwhelmed force started using school buses to take the children to jail. But that first wave was only the beginning. When hundreds more returned the next day, Bull Connor directed the police and fire department to begin using force on the child marchers. The decision surprised even those used to his meanness and brutality but it was not enough to stop the determined young marchers. The searing heartbreaking pictures of children being battered and tossed about by powerful fire hoses and attacked by police dogs appeared on front pages around the country and world and helped turn the tide of public opinion in support of Dr. King’s local and the national civil rights movement’s fight for justice. Marches and protests continued in Birmingham with children leading the way. As some were arrested and attacked more and more kept coming to take their place, leaving

Birmingham jails so overflowing that some child prisoners were held at the city’s fairground and others in an open-air stockade where they were pelted by rain. On May 8 a temporary truce was called and on May 10 an agreement was reached that released the jailed children and others on bond and paved the way for desegregation of Birmingham’s public facilities. But hateful White segregationists in the city did not give in quietly. Within hours the Gaston Motel where Dr. King and other SCLC leaders stayed and Dr. King’s brother Reverend A.D. King’s home were firebombed. Four months later, a bomb was placed under the steps of the 16th Street Baptist Church with a timer set to go off Sunday morning that exploded as children were in the church’s basement preparing to lead Youth Sunday services. Fourteenyear-olds Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley and 11-year-old Denise McNair were killed and more than 20 others were injured. More than a year later, when one interviewer asked Dr. King how he felt after that bombing, he first described his despair at thinking that if men could be that bestial maybe there really was no hope. But, he said, time had eventually “buoyed me with the inspiration of another moment which I shall never forget: when I saw with my own eyes over three thousand young Negro boys and girls, totally unarmed, leave Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church to march to a prayer meeting – ready to pit nothing but the power

of their bodies and souls against Bull Connor’s police dogs, clubs, and fire hoses.” He told the same interviewer: “I never will forget a moment in Birmingham when a white policeman accosted a little Negro girl, seven or eight years old, who was walking in a demonstration with her mother. ‘What do you want?’ the policeman asked her gruffly, and the little girl looked him straight in the eye and answered, ‘Fee-dom.’ She couldn’t even pronounce it, but she knew. It was beautiful! Many times when I have been in sorely trying situations, the memory of that little one has come into my mind, and has buoyed me.” The same example that buoyed Dr. King should inspire us today. It has been thrilling to see young people step forward to protest the egregious actions this Administration is taking against immigrants. It has been thrilling to see young people mobilized to reaffirm that Black Lives Matter. It was thrilling for those who participated in the March for Our Lives to hear so many young people from the stage speaking to the need to Protect Children, Not Guns and to see so many others taking part in school walkouts across the country – all nonviolently! And it was thrilling to be in Birmingham last weekend with Jack and Jill’s wonderful families and see some of the original marchers standing up again along with a new generation of engaged children and parents to honor the sacrifices that changed Birmingham and America and pick up the baton and to sit next to the young African American Birmingham Mayor. And what an honor to arrive at the Fred Shuttlesworth International Airport named for the most courageous God fearing man I know, undeterred by multiple bombings of his churches and threats to his life. The Children’s Crusade reminds all of us that children can be transforming agents of change who can show us adults the way to becoming a just and safer nation.

A Life Altering Discovery: Mothers Are Not Fathers Dr. James L. Snyder Celebrating another "Mother's Day,” gave opportunity for reflection. I think for the most part mothers get a bad rap these days, or at least they don’t get the kind of appreciation they truly deserve, and they sure don’t get the pay-package they earn. Of course, if they did nobody could afford a mother. The most astounding thing I discovered about my mother is that mothers are not fathers. I know this may come as a shock to many people; it came as a terrific shock to me. I'm not sure I have gotten over it yet. I knew there was a difference somewhere, but I really could not put my finger on it until I made this awesome discovery.

Once the shock of this truth waned, I gave this some thought and came up with a few comparisons that helped me understand the difference. I remember my mother always having a funny smell about her not quite like the good earthy aroma my father had. My mother always went to great pains so she would smell "pretty." I never did like perfume. It made my nose burn. I remember liking the smell of my father. It was just more natural. And some days it was more natural than other. I remember mother was highly allergic to dirt, while father was quite at home with it. Whenever I would come into the house with dirt from head to toe, my mother would go into some kind of

If it is a good relationship, it will have a positive influence throughout a person's lifetime. hysterical fit wanting me to take off all my clothes and get in the tub right away, and sometimes, it was not even Saturday night. Father, on the other hand, seemed happier when he was the dirtiest. Dirt never seemed to bother him. Grease spots or grass stains never offended him at all. But all of this offended my mother.

My mother was always laying down the law while father just lay down. I think my mother had some kind of nervous problem because she never could sit still long enough to really relax. Dad could relax just about anywhere, and he did... often. My mother and father made a good team, particularly in the building business. I can remember my mother always raised the roof while father enjoyed painting the town. My brother, sister and I enjoyed the painting exercises of my father, which may explain why his finances were always in the red. Another thing I observed about my mother and mothers in general for that matter. There are times when mothers will have a good bawl for no reason, while fathers

just loved having a ball for no reason. I'm sure there were other differences between my mother and my father. When I realized that mothers are not fathers, the whole world began to make more sense to me. A good father is a perfect balance between a mother and a boy. The Bible encourages us to honor both our father and mother. "My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:" (Proverbs 6:20). Perhaps wise Solomon had our generation in mind when he wrote, "There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother." (Proverbs 30:11). Mothers may not be fathers but they are exactly what God ordered.

Blacks Can’t Afford to Ignore Dental Health

A Smile for Every Child: ‘Sharing Smiles Day’ and the Importance of Dental Health By Julianne Malveaux While Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) over the all children, provide a safety net, access to dental care is a big issue, especially for children of color. According to the Pew Charitable Trusts, “tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children in the United States, five times as prevalent as asthma, and dental care is one of the nation’s greatest unmet children’s health needs.,” Why? Sometimes children’s parents simply did not arrange for them to see a dentist. Sometimes, dental services were not available in particular areas, for example, dental needs are sometimes more likely to be addressed in emergency rooms than dental clinics. And, a 2016 report from the Department of Health and Human Services said that dental provider shortages were at least part of the reason some children, especially low-income Black and Hispanic children, lack dental care. Children pay a big price when their dental needs are unmet. In the worst and most extreme cases, as in that of Maryland’s Deamonte Driver, children can die, because they do not have access to basic dental services. “Childhood dental decay can lead to pain, difficulty eating, speaking and sleeping, and more serious infections, some of which can be lifethreatening,” said Dr. Diane Earle, the managing dental director for Kool Smiles. To address some of the need, Kool Smiles, a division of the Benevis Corporation, is offering free dental care to children in need on Sunday, May 20. Offices in 13

Childhood dental decay can lead to pain, difficulty eating, speaking and sleeping.

states plus Washington, D.C. will be open to provide dental exams, extractions, fillings, sealants, and other emergency services. The free day is open to children who either lack insurance or are underinsured. To be sure, Kool Smiles can’t possibly provide a smile for every child, but they are taking a step in the right direction. This year represents the fourth year that the organization has offered the free service. It’s first-come, first-serve; so if you are interested, check out mykoolsmiles. com/sharing smiles, where you can register for a free appointment. In the past three years more than 1,400

children have received free dental health care, with more than 500 being treated last year. Kool Smiles hopes to serve even more children this year. Access to safe and affordable health care has been part of my portfolio for some years. In 2015, I had the privilege of spending a week at Meharry Medical College, lecturing on health policy. The challenges that people of color face around health care can be distilled to the 3 A’s: Access, Assets, and Attitudes. All too often access is limited, because people live in the wrong areas, because providers are

unavailable, or because there are other reasons people can’t physically get to the care they need. Assets determine almost everything—if you don’t have the dollars, no matter what the proximity, you won’t likely have the care you need. Finally, the attitudes of both providers and patients make a difference in who seeks care and in what kind of care is provided. Recent work on maternal mortality among African American women, regardless of race, suggests that racial attitudes in treatment make a difference. Consider the case of our superstar, Serena Williams, who almost died giving birth to her precious Alexis Olympia, partly, because of some preconceived notions about Black folks on the part of misguided medical professionals. Mental health and dental health are the two parts of healthcare that are most frequently ignored. It is not enough to simply get an annual checkup. Increasing research shows that mental health and physical health are inextricably intertwined. Dental health, all too frequently, is ignored. Even those with “good” health insurance may have limited dental insurance. And lower-income folks rely on Medicaid and CHIP, but may not have anywhere to go to get the help they need. Dental practitioners like Dr. Diane Earle, a second-generation Meharry-

trained dentist, stand in the gap for those who may not have access to healthcare. In her role as Managing Dental Director for Kool Smiles, Earle said that, “Sharing Smiles Day is an opportunity for our dentists and staff to put a smile back on the faces of children who need dental care but whose families cannot afford it.” Pew says that more than 18 million low-income children had no access to health care in 2014. Kool Smile’s modest effort to see 500 or more children on May 20 doesn’t begin to deal with the enormity of the challenge, but it’s an effort that will make a big difference for the children who are treated. And it’s an opportunity for us to reflect on the importance of dental health that the role that dental service organizations (DSOs) like Kool Smiles can play in closing the dental health gap. Full disclosure: I’ve worked with Benevis and Kool Smiles and their dental service organization, Benevis, on a program called Watch Yo’ Mouth, featuring Dr. Diane Earle and healthy living author Debra Peek-Haynes. We plan to offer more of these programs in coming months. Meanwhile, though, I am excited about Sharing Smiles Day and about developing ways more low-income children can have access to dental care, so that there can be a healthy smile for every child in our nation.

Fighting Discrimination in the Housing Market Takes a Strong FHA By Charlene Crowell In the classic movie film, “Gone with the Wind,” the owner of the Tara plantation admonished his daughter for remarking that she didn’t care about her home. In a sharp rebuke, Gerald O-Hara declared that “land was the only thing worth living for, worth fighting for…worth dying for.” For the fictional O’Hara family, Tara was their home, and the source of the family’s wealth. Fast forward to the 21st century, having a home remains a rock-solid route to building wealth that grows and becomes a key opportunity to share that same wealth inter-generationally. Unless you are among those who have been denied your own American Dream. New research by the Center for Responsible Lending finds that today’s racial wealth gaps were supported and sustained by the federal government’s Fair Housing Administration (FHA). From the program’s inception during the 1930s, FHA perpetuated racial discrimination by making mortgage credit broadly available to White borrowers and at the same time, excluding Blacks and other people of color. More importantly, FHA has an important role to play in leveling today’s mortgage finance field and its two-tiered system. “These homeownership rate disparities did not occur by chance,” argued Peter Smith and Melissa Stegman, authors of “Repairing a two-tiered system: The critical but complex role of FHA.” “The homeownership rate gap between Whites and people of color is in large part due to historic federal housing policy choices that created decadeslong impacts.”

CRL, however, credits FHA mortgage lending as an important aid to the nation’s economic recovery following the Great Recession. As much of private mortgage lending retreated during the housing crisis, FHA increased its purchase market share to 42 percent in 2009. Prior to that economic crisis, FHA’s market share was only 8.8 percent of the market. FHA also sustained the mortgage market and provided broad liquidity for wealthier borrowers in addition to low-tomoderate income families. FHA’s refinancing of toxic subprime loans saved many family homes from foreclosure and became a sustainable alternative. Today, with much of the mortgage market recovered, unnecessarily tight and expensive credit in the conventional mortgage market often makes FHA the only option to finance homeownership for low- to moderate-income borrowers, lowerwealth borrowers, and borrowers of color. This single-option also means that borrowers broadly denied the lower-cost, most-affordable private loans available, have a slower rate of home appreciation due to fees and insurance that accompany government-backed loans. CRL’s analysis of mortgage data from 2004 to 2016 found that: • The FHA market share for Black and Latino borrowers now approaches half of all purchase mortgage lending to these borrowers;

• FHA is the major source of mortgage credit for higher-income Black and Latino borrows as compared to conventional lending; • Tight and expensive credit in the conventional market has led to FHA becoming the only mortgage option for many borrowers of color, low-to-moderate income families, and lower-wealth families. • Of the top 10 FHA home purchase lenders in 2004, five were banks and five were non-depositories; by 2016, eight of the top 10 FHA lenders were non-depositories. It is important to note that the withdrawal of banks leaving the FHA insured program, comes at a time of record profits, made possible in large by taxpayer dollars that provided a financial bailout of failing financial institutions, during the housing

collapse. These lenders exit the program at a time when it is inadequately funded and lacks up-to-date technology that could enhance its administrative functions. Further, the exit of large banks additionally became a gateway for non-depository institutions to fill the market’s gap. Non-banks, subject to fair lending protections, are not however included in the Community Reinvestment Act. Many of the financial abuses that led to the housing crisis began with unregulated and nonbank lenders. Many lenders will argue that the retreat from FHA was caused by actions taken by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Justice under the False Claims Act. This federal law allows the government to hold companies accountable for making “false claims” to the government about their products or services. Beyond being assessed damages for infractions, enforcement of the law can additionally include a company or representative being banned from future federal funds or contracts. State attorneys general would counter this lender claim by pointing to the $25 billion national mortgage settlement reached with five of the nation’s largest mortgage servicers as evidence that lenders engaged in egregious conduct in clear violation of the law. The significance of major banks withdrawing from the mortgage

market is further underscored by other findings shared in a related report by the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA): • Since 1988, close to $1 billion in victim compensation has resulted from lawsuits alleging redlining and discrimination by mortgage lenders; • Housing discrimination com­ plaints grew from 2016 to 2017’s 28,843 cases; • Of 2017’s discriminatory ho­ using complaints, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) processed less than five percent, or 1,311; and • Among the 6,896 complaints processed by state and local Fair Housing Assistance Program Agencies, the Department of Justice brought only 41 cases. “As the 2018 Trends Report shows, we must put an end to the many institutionalized barriers that prevent too many families in this country from fair access to housing,” said Lisa Rice, the NFHA President and CEO. “We cannot build a thriving society as long as our nation is plagued by discrimination, segregation, and severe economic inequality.” CRL President Mike Calhoun said that in the year that marks a half century of the Fair Housing Act it is appropriate to acknowledge the journey traveled in five decades. It’s also the time to, “look ahead to the hundreds of miles yet to travel, before fair housing is a reality for all,” Calhoun said.

HEALTH

Underprepared Cancer Docs Still Recommend Medicinal Marijuana By Carla K. Johnson SEATTLE—Nearly half of U.S. cancer doctors who responded to a survey say they've recently recommended medical marijuana to patients, although most say they don't know enough about medicinal use.

If we're not comfortable having these discussions, patients will get information from other sources, and it's not going to be as reliable. Dr. Steven Pergam, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance

T

HE results reflect how marijuana policy in some states has outpaced research, the study authors said. All 29 states with medical marijuana programs allow doctors to recommend it to cancer patients. But no rigorous studies in cancer patients exist. That leaves doctors to make assumptions from other research on similar prescription drugs, or in other types of patients. “The big takeaway is we need more research, plain and simple,” said Dr. Ilana Braun of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, who led the study published last week in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Patients want to know what their doctors think about using marijuana. In the new study, cancer doctors said their conversations about marijuana were almost always started by patients and their families, not by the doctors themselves. Overall, nearly eight in 10 cancer doctors reported having

discussed marijuana with patients or their families, with 46 percent recommending it for pain and other cancer-related problems to at least one patient in the past year. Among those who said they recommended marijuana, 56 percent said they did not have sufficient knowledge to do so. “They're not as close-minded as you might think, and they also feel they have a lot to learn,” Braun said. The survey was conducted in a

random sample of cancer doctors; researchers got completed surveys from 237 doctors, or 63 percent. Marijuana is considered an illegal drug by federal officials and federal restrictions have limited research. Last year, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine concluded the lack of scientific information about marijuana poses a risk to public health. There's evidence marijuana

Graduates Losing Health Coverage Eligible for Covered California You have finally climbed the mountaintop and are about to graduate from college. You’re going to walk across that stage, grab that diploma and begin the rest of your life. But life can change in an instant, and it’s imperative to have the important things—like your health— covered. Graduation means some of you may be coming off a schoolsponsored health plan, or turning 26, the limit for when you can remain on your parents’ health plan. Some of you may be getting married and entering a new phase of life. “Congratulations, gra­dua­tes, for everything you have achieved. As you prepare to move onto the next stage of your life, ask yourself: What am I doing for health care?” said Covered California Executive Director Peter V. Lee. “If you are leaving your coverage behind when you graduate, then you may be eligible to enroll through Covered California’s specialenrollment period. Taking care of your health gives you the freedom to pursue your dreams.” Graduating and thus losing your coverage, turning 26 and coming off of your parents’ plan and getting married are all scenarios that might make you eligible for special enrollment through Covered California, the agency that administers the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in California. There are currently more than 250,000 Californians between the ages of 19 and 29 enrolled in a plan through Covered California, and they are receiving affordable, name-brand insurance coverage. The following circumstances are among the more common reasons individuals become eligible for special enrollment: • They lose their health coverage because they have lost or changed jobs. • They get married or enter a domestic partnership. • They have a baby, adopt a child or place a child for adoption or in foster care.

can treat chronic pain in adults and medications similar to marijuana can ease nausea from chemotherapy. In the study, 67 percent of cancer doctors said they view marijuana as a useful addition to standard pain therapies, with 75 percent saying it posed less risk of overdose than opioids. About half view marijuana as equal to, or more effective than, standard treatments for cancerrelated nausea.

• They move and gain access to new Covered California health insurance plans that were not available where they previously lived. • They become a citizen, a U.S. national or a lawfully present individual. If you qualify under any of these conditions, you are eligible to get health insurance coverage and join your fellow Californians in having one less thing to worry about. Make sure you take advantage of the financial help available to you and your family. During the recently completed open-enrollment period, the 85 percent of Covered California enrollees who receive subsidies saw their cost of coverage drop 11 percent in 2018 over the previous year. Nearly 60 percent of subsidyeligible enrollees have access to Silver coverage for less than $100 per month, and 74 percent can purchase Bronze coverage for less than $10 per month. That’s less than what some people pay for their cell phone bill.

For more information on specialenrollment rules, visit: http://www. CoveredCA.com/individuals-andfamilies/getting-covered/specialenrollment. Those who qualify for MediCal may enroll through Covered California year round. Eligible consumers who are interested in signing up should go to www.CoveredCA.com where they can get help to enroll. They can explore their options and find out if they qualify for financial help by using the Shop and Compare Tool. They can also get free and confidential enrollment assistance by visiting www.coveredca.com/ find-help/ and searching among 800 storefronts statewide, or more than 17,000 certified enrollers who can assist consumers in understanding their choices and enrolling, including individuals who can assist in other languages. In addition, consumers can reach the Covered California service center by calling (800) 300-1506.

Marijuana isn't harmless. The National Academies report said pot smoking may be linked to higher chances of traffic accidents, chronic bronchitis from long-term use and schizophrenia and other causes of psychosis, especially in the most frequent users. Dr. Steven Pergam of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance answers questions about marijuana's safety from his colleagues at the treatment center. His responses depend on the patient. A dying patient with cancer that's spread? “Whatever they want to do to make themselves comfortable,” said Pergam, who wasn't involved in the new research. A patient with leukemia, however, should be warned of a theoretical possibility of a fungal infection tied to cannabis use. “If we're not comfortable having these discussions, patients will get information from other sources, and it's not going to be as reliable,” he said.

NEW ORLEANS—One used to deal drugs on the streets of New Orleans. Another grew up in Chicago with two drugaddicted parents. A third survived the tough streets of New York and Washington, D.C., where he once stared down the barrel of a gun. All three young Black men became board-certified doctors. In an interview with The Associated Press, Pierre Johnson, Maxime Madhere and Joe Semien Jr. said they knew the odds were stacked against them when they entered Xavier University of Louisiana in 1998 with hopes of becoming doctors. Black men make up a small percentage of doctors in America, and they knew getting through college and medical school wouldn't be easy. Their early lives, college struggles, and victories are chronicled in “Pulse of Perseverance: Three Black Doctors on Their Journey to Success.” They said they wrote the book to show AfricanAmerican boys that athletes and entertainers aren't the only examples of Black achievement and success. Madhere, an anesthesiologist in Baton Rouge, said they're fortunate and have a responsibility to share their experiences with the next generation. “Young boys need to know it's not a game in these streets. They need to know that we are completely marginalized as people of color when we mess up. They also need to know you don't have to rap or shoot a ball to get out of their circumstances,” said Madhere. Semien, Johnson and

Madhere each set a goal early on to become a doctor. Semien, an obstetrician/gynecologist from New Orleans who practices in Lake Charles, describes in the book how he became intrigued by a sixth-grade anatomy class. Madhere discovered his love for medicine after volunteering at a hospital. Johnson said he “just knew” he wanted to heal people after dealing with his parents. Getting there, however, wasn't easy. Four percent of doctors in the U.S. are African American, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. The men chose Xavier, knowing that the nation's only historically Black Catholic institution consistently places Black students in medical school. Johnson, an obstetrician/ gynecologist working in Chicago, writes about Xavier's nurturing environment, which helped spark the trio's friendship. Johnson said he often saw Madhere in class and around campus but noticed that he, too, was “always in the library.” “We started a conversation about how things were going and the struggles we were going through in class and ultimately decided we needed to band together ... and we saw that same energy in Joe,” Johnson said. “We held each other accountable,” Semien recalled. “When one was falling short, the other would pick him up.” Semien had to shed a street reputation that included dealing drugs and an anger problem that got him in trouble. He dropped out of Xavier at one point, joined the military, re-enrolled, dropped out again, and finally returned and met Johnson and Madhere.

NEWS Settlement Reached in LA Shooting of Homeless Black Man LOS ANGELES—A settlement of $1.9 million was reached last week in a civil lawsuit stemming from the fatal police shooting of a homeless Black man on Skid Row in Los Angeles three years ago, attorneys said. A jury found two police officers liable for financial damages in the shooting death of Charly “Africa” Keunang, a transient from Cameroon. Jurors were set to begin the damages phase of the trial when the settlement was announced. The agreement, which requires City Council approval, resolves all fees, costs and claims and

closes any future litigation over Keunang's death, City News Service reported. The settlement will go to Keunang's family if approved. “There's no amount of money that's going to bring back the loved one,” U.S. District Judge Terry J. Hatter Jr. said at the conclusion of the federal civil trial.

The eight-member jury unanimously determined that Officer Francisco Martinez deprived Keunang of his Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable force and that Sgt. Chand Syed breached his duty as a supervisor to intervene during the fatal encounter. Prosecutors in 2016 declined to file charges against the officers after it was determined the shooting justified because Keunang grabbed a rookie officer's gun during a struggle March 1, 2015. The Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement

STATEPOINT CROSSWORD THEME: MOUNTAINS AND RANGES

saying that it stands by the findings of the LAPD, the city Police Commission and the Los Angeles County district attorney's office that “the uses of force by our officers were consistent with the law and Department policy.” LAPD officers “make every effort to safely take suspects into custody without the use of force,” the statement said. “In this situation, force was

necessary because of the violent behavior of the suspect.” Officers were responding to reports that Keunang, 43, a Cameroon national, had threatened another man living on the street in the section of the city teeming with homeless people. Video of the shooting by a bystander was viewed millions of times online and prompted protests in the city and drew

comparisons with the deaths of other Black men killed by officers in the U.S. A lawyer representing Keunang's family in the lawsuit disputed that the homeless man ever had hold of an officer's gun. The Police Commission cleared officers of the shooting, though it found one officer's tactics violated policy. It did not publicly reveal what policy was violated.

after an earthquake. "We're not saying stop all the damage, that is impossible," she said. A modern city is a system of systems, she said, like pipes, roads and, homes. "Those systems need to continue so people can be able to stay here," she said. The area needs critical infrastructure, she said, like water, electricity, gas, internet, phone systems, cell towers and buildings. "These are the core set of functions we build our systems for modern life," she said. Losses from water system damage, she said, was extensive and surprising. She said the total loss from damaged buildings and structures is $50 billion, plus an expected $50 billion cost if there is no water. The water is estimated to be out for so long, up to 6 months, that it becomes the "single largest" piece of the financial pie in their models. "Our water systems are old; they're buried, nobody wants to think about them, we all have other issues that come up

and why spend the money on hidden pipes," she said. Imported water during an earthquake would cross the San Andreas fault to get to Southern California, she said and if that area breaks it would take approximately 18 months to repair. "Everyone of those aqueducts would break at the same moment," she said. She said retrofitting URMs (unreinforced masonry) buildings save lives, and no one died in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. "The City of Los Angeles did mandatory URM retrofits; they had 10,000 URMs, threequarters of them had been retrofitted, and one-quarter were demolished," she said. The retrofitted buildings were less damaged than other buildings, she said, and at lower levels of shaking. Jurisdictions have retrofitted or demolished 88 percent 88 percent of URMs with mandatory programs. "Only 22 percent were retrofitted in areas where there are voluntary programs," she said.

"They are the future of this city," she said. "It sounds like such a platitude, but it is. If they don't get what they need from the city and the school district, from the society and the community, we'll suffer the consequences." Councilman Bryan MacDonald said he too had been approached about joint meetings. "I'm not opposed to joint meetings," he said. "We as a council need to be on our "A" game. We need to be concise, to the point and get things done and not be vociferous and talk on forever." He hopes the staff has been talking before the meetings.

"So we can go in on a level playing field," he said. "I'm not comfortable with a Saturday meeting, but every time we meet, whether it says council or it says the fiscal policy task force, it involves staff support. If we do this on Saturday, we're going to have a boatload of the staff here supporting us, and that is one of the days they can spend time with their family." Councilman Bert Perello said the Oxnard School District hasn't approached him but approached other council members. "I have been in a meeting with the United Water Conservation District with another council member, and we were told there had been attempts for well over a year in trying to have meetings and they've never happened." He said there was something with the management that no longer works in Oxnard not getting it done. "I can see the point that Councilman MacDonald says about Saturday and staff, but if we need to have these meetings and we need the extra information," he said. "I don't know when else we would do it and make the coordination between the different entities work out." He said Oxnard needs to take the bull by the horns with this issue. "These things are not going away," he said.

energy per unit time. "When they slow down, they have to get bigger to carry the same amount of energy," she said. Most of Oxnard is in the flats, she said, which amplifies the potential for shaking several times. "There is a further potential problem of liquefaction," she said. "If the soils have water in them and they get compression by shaking, sort of like shaking a canister of flour, the soil compresses." If there is water in the soil that become compressed, she said, the water pressure goes up and acts like quicksand temporarily. "We tend to see a lot of (building) damage when liquefaction happens," she said. Jones said it is too late to stay off the faults and cited the neighboring hills. "Something is pushing that mountain up faster than erosion can bring it down," she said. "The fact that mountains are here shows you that you have very active faults." Jones said her objective is to make sure society functions

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 916-939-0772 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-17-770666-CL.

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.

This shall be the Purchaser's sole and

exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary's Agent, or the Beneficiary's Attorney.

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.

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 916-939-0772 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-17-765228-RY. 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 sale is set aside for any reason, including if the Trustee is unable to convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser's sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary's Agent, or the Beneficiary's Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right's against the real property only.

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.

Soul and R&B Legend Wonder: Kanye Slavery Comments ‘Foolishness'

WEST HOLLYWOOD— Stevie Wonder has called out Kanye West for saying slavery is a choice, calling the idea “foolishness” and likening it to Holocaust denial.

W

O N D E R bro­ught up West without prompting during an interview Thursday after a show at a West Hollywood club. “There's been a lot of talk about what was said by Kanye,” Wonder said. “I want people to understand that the truth is the truth and a lie is a lie. “We all know that slavery was not a choice,” he went on. “So I just think that people need to understand that if you know your history, if you know the truth, you know that's just foolishness.” Wonder said saying slavery is a choice is like saying the Holocaust is not real. West made the remarks May 1 in an interview with TMZ. “When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years, that sounds

People need to understand that if you know your history … you know that's just foolishness. Stevie Wonder like choice,” West said. He defended his statements and did not back down from them on Twitter after widespread criticism. An email to his representatives seeking a response to Wonder's comments was not immediately returned. Wonder spoke softly, not angrily, and said he also felt sympathy for West, especially over the rapper losing his mother, who died after having cosmetic surgery procedures in 2007. “You know he lost his mother, the horrible thing that happened,” Wonder said. “I don't know if he had a chance to really mourn about all that.”

Ryan Coogler Reflects on Tsunami That Is 'Black Panther' By Jake Coyle CANNES, France—At the Cannes Film Festival last week, filmmaker Ryan Coogler reflected on the historic sensation of “Black Panther” and the changes he hopes it might effect on the movie business. Noting that Hollywood theories can't be challenged “if you don't have anything that disproves it,” Coogler said in a conversation on stage that he hopes “Black Panther” is the groundbreaking force many say it is, disproving the old myths that Black films “don't travel overseas.” “I just hope that changes. It's got to change,” said Coogler. “I hope that me and you can leave the business in a better place than where we found it.” Coogler brought 60 film students, many of them African, to the event because Cannes had a significant influence on him when he came to the festival in 2013 with “Fruitvale Station.” “It really did something to me as a filmmaker,” he said, adding that in his festival experience “sometimes it can be challenging when you're in a talk and you don't see faces that look like yours.” In preparing the film, Coogler said he realized that the story of “Black Panther”—about a young man ascending to a family throne—bore many similarities to “The Godfather.” He studied Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece and even screened an early cut of “Black Panther” with Coppola. But Coogler didn't want that to divulge that inspiration before the movie came out because he said he was worried that people would think he was “aiming too high” for a comic book film.

Protesters: Black People Should Hold R. Kelly Accountable

By Tom Foreman Jr.

It really did something to me as a filmmaker, Director Ryan Coogler “Black Panther” became one of the year's most acclaimed films and grossed more than $1.3 billion worldwide. About half of ticket sales were overseas. On Wednesday night, “Black Panther” was screened on the Cannes beach. The first time he screened the film for an audience, Coogler said, was for a group including a few dozen family members, Ava DuVernay, Kendrick Lamar (who produced the soundtrack), Issa Rae and George Lucas. Coogler also cited the likes of Lamar, DuVernay and Donald Glover's “Atlanta” for pushing him, indirectly, on “Black Panther.” “My mind is being stretched by what we as people can do,” he said. “Black Panther” has been hailed for its empowered and pivotal female characters, also a rarity in the superhero landscape. An interviewer also noted that Coogler had on his three films always worked with female cinematographers and editors. The women of Wakanda, the imaginary land featured in the film, reminded Coogler of home. “In a macro sense, that's the Black community,” he said. “You find these incredibly layered women (who are) smart, heads of household. That's the world I come from. The women in my life are amazing and I want to make films that capture that.”

GREENSBORO, N.C.—A defiant R. Kelly took the stage last Friday night in North Carolina, in spite of efforts to silence him over his treatment of women, and had barely begun performing when the bone-rattling background beat stopped playing. “I've been through a lot of (expletive)” this week, he said. He thanked his fans, “for y'all to fight for me all these years.” He said someone had asked him to tone down his act. And then he launched into his sexually suggestive repertoire. At one point, he rubbed a fan's cell phone between his legs. He persuaded another to wipe his face and crotch with a towel. Women's groups had urged the Greensboro Coliseum to cancel, days after Kelly was disinvited from a concert in Chicago. Spotify announced it would no longer stream his music in its curated playlists. Other streaming services appeared to be demoting his music as well. Kelly denies abusing anyone and faces no current criminal charges, and his fans weren't giving up on their R&B superstar. “Everybody has some skeletons in the closet. I'm not going to tear him down, every good thing he does, because of something negative in his life,” said Clarissa Kelley of Lancaster, South Carolina. The Greensboro concert was among the R&B singer's first performances since the (hash)MuteRKelly movement accelerated boycott efforts in recent weeks, with help from the Time's Up campaign against sexual harassment and assault. Protesters gathered outside the Greensboro Coliseum and criticized arena officials for declining to meet with a coalition of women's groups that signed a letter citing a “long term history of sexual misconduct” by Kelly. “It's important for the Black community to stand up and hold him accountable for his actions,” said Omisade BurneyScott, with the Sistersong, a

R. Kelly police mugshot.

It's important for the Black community to stand up and hold him accountable for his actions. Sistersong’s Omisade Burney-Scott reproductive rights group. R. Kelly is one of pop music's best-selling artists, with hits including “Ignition,” ‘'I Believe I Can Fly,” ‘'Step in the Name of Love,” ‘'Same Girl” and “Bump N' Grind.” He's also written hits for Celene Dion, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga. He's written classic love songs and even gospel music, but he's defined by sexually explicit songs such as “Feelin' on Yo Booty,” ‘'Your Body's Calling Me,” and ‘'Sex Me.” He was acquitted in 2008 of child pornography after a video circulated appearing to show him having sex with a teenage girl. But as he continued to score hits and sell out stadiums, more women have come forward in

recent years accusing him of sexual misconduct. Kelly had been scheduled to be among the performers at a May 5 concert in Chicago, but was dropped as efforts by organizers of (hash)MuteRKelly gained attention with support from Hollywood's Time's Up campaign. Spotify, citing its new policy against hateful content and conduct, announced Thursday that Kelly's music is no longer available on the service's owned and operated playlists and algorithmic recommendations. His music can still be found by those who search for it, but Spotify will not promote it. Kelly's management protested the move in a statement to The Associated Press. “R. Kelly never has been accused of hate, and the lyrics he writes express love and desire,” the statement read. “Mr. Kelly for 30 years has sung songs about his love and passion for women. He is innocent of the false and hurtful accusations in the ongoing smear campaign against him, waged by enemies seeking a payoff. He never has been convicted of a crime, nor does he have any pending criminal charges against him.”
