    The Cherokee Nation is denouncing scholar-activist Andrea Smith for falsely claiming to be a member of the tribe. Beyond untrue, the ethnic fraud is a painful reminder of their past. “I have always been, and will always be Cherokee.” This is University of California, Riverside professor Andrea Smith’s official response to recent allegations that she is not Cherokee, an identity that she has claimed throughout her decades-long career as a prominent figure in Native American scholarship and activism. In a blog post on Thursday night, Smith maintained that she is Cherokee, that she has “consistently identified [herself] based on what...

    Vanity: Some all comedy stations have dropped the format as distribution of 24/7 comedy ended. One is KFNY AM 1440 Riverside, CA, which is now news-talk as "IE (Inland Empire) 1440". As one would expect with Clear Channel this probably means syndicated talkers like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. Not sure, as the KFNY website doesn't have a schedule yet but I just went to iHeartRadio at 11:06 ET--8:06 PT--and heard Glenn Beck. So if you like conservative talk and are up there, it may be worth checking out. (The site does have a new logo, a mention...

    RIVERSIDE: RCC student body president is registered sex offender It was no April Fools’ joke. On Monday, April 1, anonymous black-and-white fliers were found pinned to billboards at Riverside City College saying the student body president is a registered sex offender. Students at first thought it was a cruel prank, but once it was confirmed, the revelation left them asking whether RCC administrators, who acknowledge they knew about it before the election, should have disclosed the information to the campus community. Doug Robert Figueroa, 40, of Riverside, was sentenced to five years in prison for admitting that in 2005 he...

    Hemet could become one of the first California cities to formally support Arizona's immigration law. The City Council on Tuesday unanimously agreed to direct city staff to craft a resolution backing the law. The Arizona law requires police officers during a "lawful stop, detention or arrest" to detain people they reasonably suspect are in the country without authorization and to verify their status with federal officials. It is scheduled to take effect in August. Federal efforts to reform immigration law have repeatedly collapsed, leading states to attempt their own legislation as they experience spikes in illegal immigrants and related costs....

    Riverside and San Bernardino counties added more Latino residents between 2000 and 2007 than all but three other U.S. counties, a new analysis of U.S. Census data found. The report, by the nonpartisan Washington, D.C.-based Pew Hispanic Center, also found that most Latino population growth is now from new births. In the 1980s and 1990s, it was mostly from immigration. That means no matter what happens to the immigration rate, the Latino population of Riverside and San Bernardino counties will continue to grow steadily, reaching a majority within several years, experts say. Riverside County's Hispanic population surged 60 percent between...

    NORTH COUNTY ---- Blame it on the sky-high housing prices. In all but one year of this decade, more people have moved out of San Diego County than have moved in from other parts of the state and nation. And, not surprisingly, say analysts, the trend accelerated during the last three years, with homes never more out of reach of the typical area family. The total number of fleeing San Diego County residents reached a peak of 42,034 last year, eighth highest among all U.S. counties, according to new Census Bureau statistics. That exodus ---- focusing on the 12 months...

    Forum: How is the immigration issue impacting your community?(please enable pop-ups to see the gallery)When he came to the United States from Brazil on a tourist visa four years ago, the carpenter decided he would stay, even if it meant living here illegally. And when he thought about where he would live, Riverside, in Burlington County, seemed the natural choice.  The old industrial town's quaint feel and modest homes were reminiscent of his native village in Brazil. And many residents and merchants spoke Portuguese because there was an established community of immigrants from Portugal.  Now, he is planning to...

    I passed through Shannon Airport in Ireland the other day. They've got a "holiday" display in the terminal, but guess what? It says "Merry Christmas." The Emerald Isle has a few Jews, and these days rather a lot of Muslims, and presumably even a militant atheist or two, but they don't seem inclined to sue the bejasus out of every event in the Yuletide season. By contrast, the Associated Press reports the following from Riverside, Calif.: "A high school choir was asked to stop singing Christmas carols during an ice skating show featuring Olympic medalist Sasha Cohen out of concern...

    A "silent night" as carolers told to stop singing at skating show RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) -- A high school choir was asked to stop singing Christmas carols during an ice skating show featuring Olympic medalist Sasha Cohen out of concern the skater would be offended because she's Jewish. A city staff member, accompanied by a police officer, approached the Rubidoux High School Madrigals at the Riverside Outdoor Ice Skating Rink just as they launched into "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" and requested that the troupe stop singing, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported Thursday. Cohen, the 2006 Olympic silver medalist and 2006...

  • RIVERSIDE'S TERROR RALLY (Church rally for Lynne Stewart)

    RIVERSIDE'S TERROR RALLY By CHARLES E.F. MILLARD October 18, 2006 -- In the uproar over Monday's outrageously soft sentence for terror-aiding lawyer Lynne Stewart, Riverside Church seems to be distancing itself from the despicable rally it hosted in her support Sunday. Stewart was convicted by a jury of her peers. The uncontested facts were that she had smuggled messages from convicted terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman ("the blind sheik") to his followers in the Islamic world. Those messages directed his followers in the terror group Gama'a Islamiyya to end their cease-fire with the Egyptian government and begin killing Rahman's enemies. Rahman,...

    Eminent-domain action goes to Inland council Plan calls for condos on 12 downtown lots RIVERSIDE - The city Redevelopment Agency is proposing to condemn 12 parcels on Market and Main streets downtown for a large condominium project by Los Angeles-based developer Mark Rubin. The proposal to force the property owners to sell their land if they can't agree on a price comes to the City Council, acting as the agency board, Tuesday afternoon. The agency estimates the cost of buying the parcels, which total about 3.5 acres, at $5.4 million. That makes it the costliest eminent-domain action for the benefit...

    Simmering tensions over illegal immigrants were ratcheted up Aug. 20 in Riverside, N.J., as a rally protesting the passage of a recent township ordinance drew several hundred people and forced the closure of the town's main street. About 200 people gathered in front of the Riverside Township Municipal Building to protest the law passed last month, which imposes penalties on anyone hiring or housing illegal immigrants. On the other side of the intersection, behind police barriers, several hundred people waved signs and American flags and screamed epithets at the gathering. "This can only lead to more separation, more hostility, more...

    RIVERSIDE, N.J. - Hundreds of protesters and counter-protesters assembled in this small Philadelphia suburb Sunday in response to the community's new attempt to crack down on illegal immigration. About 200 protesters argued against a township ordinance adopted last month that bans the hiring and housing of people who cannot verify they are legal residents. A larger group massed across the street to support the new law. People on both sides of the street waved American flags, but traded hostile remarks. "This can only lead to more separation, more hostility, more hatred, more anger," Marlene Lao-Collins, associate director of the New...

    Southern CA at risk for massive quake KPBS San Diego KPBS SAN DIEGO (2006-06-21) A new study by Scripps Institution of Oceanography indicates a considerable amount of strain is building on the southern end of the San Andreas fault, and could result in a significant earthquake at any moment. The study, led by Scripps' geologist Yuri Fialko, is comprised of more than 20 years' worth of detailed data, and suggests the two plates on either side of the southern San Andreas fault are slipping past each other at 25 millimetres per year. Without a recent quake to alleviate that pressure,...

    Inland Rep. Jerry Lewis has received more than $1 million in donations from lobbyists and current and past clients of a top Washington lobbying firm under investigation by federal authorities, an analysis of campaign-finance data shows. A federal grand jury issued subpoenas last month to Inland cities and counties asking them to turn over documents about their decision to hire the firm, billing statements and communications between local officials, Lewis and the lobbying firm Copeland, Lowery, Jacquez, Denton & White. Clients of Copeland Lowery have received millions of dollars in congressional earmarks -- the special projects lawmakers insert into federal...

    Jerry Lewis is a man embattled. In nearly 40 years of public service, he has risen from humble roots on the school board of San Bernardino to become one of the most powerful members of the United States House of Representatives - chairman of the Appropriations Committee, which oversees nearly $900 billion in federal funding. He touts his successes in developing federal clean-air standards, crafting crime and drug legislation and securing emergency funding for disaster relief for California. Closer to home, he counts the establishment of a high-tech cancer center at Loma Linda University Medical Center, the expansion of Ontario...
