    Elder Abuse via Trustees & Guardians

    in Legal

    In investigating a hearing's officer over in Spokane I found some horrifying things regarding the Trustee Guardianship scams. The hearing's officer's (there are two) plus some of their associates have had their cases destroyed illegally, & one brings her business partner who is a convicted murderer along with her to visit clients when they fight back & God forbid that they get a lawyer to try to fight her, she simply gets them disbarred since she is the one making the decision as a hearings officer. She is a former nurse & was also the hearings law judge for the Medical Board so same goes, if any healthcare provider complained about her clients treatment she could end them pretty quickly. So how did this happen? The WSBA (Washington State Bar Association) is well aware that this is happening but have done nothing to stop it. As usual

    Your Family Name Was Not Changed at Ellis Island - Kenneth A. Bravo, JD

    in History

    Why the New York Times is Wrong – Using Basic Genealogy Tools and Methods to Show that Your Family Name Was Not Changed At Ellis Island.


    There is a common misconception, call it an old wives tale or an urban legend, that family names were often changed at Ellis Island.  Such myths gain a great deal of credibility when newspapers such as the New York Times, the country’s “paper of record”, perpetuates these myths by repeating them, in this case in obituaries.


    When Kenneth saw one of these obituaries a few years ago, he wrote to the Times pointing out their error and suggesting sources that they could check to verify what he was saying.  When they seemed to ignore him, he did the research on the family of the person named in the obituary and was able to show what the name was when the family immigrated and how the family name changed as they adapted to life in the United States.  He sent all of the proof to the Times and was still ignored.  Finally the Times responded.  They were not going to do anything to correct the erroneous obituary but suggested they might do a news story on the issue.  The experience led him to do a search of other Times obituaries with the Ellis Island story.  He located about half a dozen.  After doing the research on each, he was able to show the original name for each of them.


    Kenneth A. Bravo received his JD from The Ohio State University, College of Law and his B.A. degree in Economics from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.  He is Vice President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and, the former president and current member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland.  Bravo has lectured on a number of genealogical topics.

    O yE DRYBONES, SELMA PART2: JESUITS, JEWS AND COMMUNIST CONNECTION

    in Current Events

    Dr. King was invited to speak at Saint Peter’s Michaelmas Convocation by the board of trustees, with the main push coming from Jesuit Father Victor Yanitelli, the president at the time. Held at the beginning of the school year, the Michaelmas Convocation is an annual celebration honoring student and faculty with awards as well as featuring a guest speaker.Saint Peter’s awarded Dr. King with an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws and Letters. After receiving the honorary degree, Dr. King spoke on the evils of inequality and how segregation was in opposition of democracy.


    When Martin Luther King visited the White House on June 22, 1963, President John Kennedy took him on a private walk in the Rose Garden and urged him to cut his personal and organizational ties to both Stanley Levison, a white businessman and lawyer who was a close confidant, and Jack O’Dell, a Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) staffer who had been hired on Levison’s recommendation, on the grounds that they were Communists. Levison had been a central figure in party financial activities. Not only was he the source of a big chunk of money bundled from Communist-leaning businessmen, he was also actively involved in laundering party funds. 


    A master strategist and tireless activist, Bayard Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. He brought Gandhi’s protest techniques to the American civil rights movement, and helped mold Martin Luther King, Jr. into an international symbol of peace and nonviolence.


    Despite these achievements, Rustin was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era.

    Freedom’s Gate: Enterprising women – Pamela Paquin & Susan Swift Arnall

    in News

    When it comes to high fashion fur there is one woman who is creating quite a rage and setting the scene ablaze and her name is Pamela M. Paquin.  The company she founded Petite Mort has legitimized the phrase “ethical fur” and is simultaneously revolutionizing the fur industry with American road kill.  That’s correct, and what could have been merely animals who were simply the casualties of the nation’s roadways are ending up as fur accessories for wearers all over America.


    Paquin has worn many hats and one of them has been as a business entrepreneur who has a penchant for fighting resource misuse as a world renowned global sustainability expert.  But her new life as a fur fashion firm president began after leaving Copenhagen, Denmark to return to America as a single mother and pursued a business dream to build a new life for her daughter and herself.


    The fashion fur dream of road kill couture is also a story of a woman who struggled as millions of single mothers do, and the pathway she took that serves as an example for others.  On Standing at Freedom’s Gate join Pamela M. Paquin, President of Petite Mort,   who she uses her courage,  conviction and Native American heritage in a business that PETA should not find fault with.


    Also on the show will be Susan Swift Arnall, who has been a noted actor, attorney, businesswoman, and writer who is running for Glendale Community College (GCC) Board of Trustees. See how she explains why a conservative leader can and will make a difference in California higher education.

    HBCU Tuesdays! Discussion On ALA State Football & Coach Brian Jenkins Allegation

    in Sports

    Brian Jenkins turned the Bethune-Cookman University football program into a winner, but off the field former players and coaches say the program was rife with rules violations and teetering on the edge of dysfunction because of the animosity between them and Jenkins, who is the new head coach at Alabama State University.


    With one exception, they independently provided nearly identical details of rules violations and what they felt was Jenkins' mistreatment of players.


    Allegations against Jenkins and his program include:


    — Improper benefits provided to players;


    — Improper housing arrangements;


    — Continued and extensive violations of the NCAA weekly practice time limits;


    — Failure to pay three assistant coaches that resulted in a federal lawsuit;


    — And, bullying of staff and players with retaliation against those who spoke up.


    Prior to Jenkins' departure in December from Bethune-Cookman, officials there had conducted an investigation into a number of allegations, and assistant athletic director Tony O'Neal, who wouldn't answer questions about the investigation, said, "Anything that needed to be reported (to the conference and NCAA) was reported."


    "I talked with Coach Jenkins about those issues, and he was very up front with me about everything," Hines said. "My view on that is that it's all personnel matters from his previous workplace and this is a fresh start. (The trustees and I) have discussed those issues, and I made them aware of potentially what could be out there."
