Carol Smith's IRS Tax Code Violation
What Happens When an Ojai City Councilmember VIOLATES IRS TAX CODE.....? Carol's Tax Election Code Violation - Too Late for a "Carol" IRS Audit?
NOTE: Carol Smith Campaign Ad (posted here), as printed in the Ojai Valley ("News"), Oct. 29, 2010 ~ Smith was elected in the Nov. 3, 2011 election. The Ad clearly cites Smith was being endorsed by two non-proft 501 (c)(3) organizations based in the Ojai Valley, which is directly prohibited by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Tax Code (left).....or were the organizations simply unaware Smith took out the Ad citing their illegal endorsement? IS it too late for the IRS to do a Tax Audit on Carol? Guess newly-elected  Ojai Mayor Carol figured.... Anything to Win the Campaign, eh.......
1. "The Ojai Music Festival is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible."
2. "...the Nan Tolbert Nurturing Center (formerly known as the Ojai Valley Birth Resource and Family Support), a non-profit 501(c)(3)...." Ed NOTE: A non-profit organization does not pay taxes, like you and I, and therefore is accountable to the public. Did Ojai Councilmember Carol Smith jeopardize at least two Ojai (stalwart) non-profit organizations Tax Exempt Status and open herself up to an IRS Audit, when she obtained their Illegal Political Campaign Endorsements? ACCORDING TO IRS Regulations. Sec. 1.501(c)(3)-1(c)(3)(iii), a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization is
Richard Senate: Ghosts of Meiner's Oaks 4/2014
VIEW EXCLUSIVE: The Ghosts of Meiner's Oaks
by Richard L. Senate
Near Ojai, stands a small unique community called Meiner's Oaks.
The community of Meiner's Oaks has a population of 3,571 souls and extends for a little over one square mile. It was named for John Meiner, a brewer from Germany who settled here in the 1870s and ranched oranges, lemons, plums apricots and apples. As the years passed a hamlet developed around the ranch. In time it became known for its own laid-back persona, but, if the stories are true, more ghosts walk this small town than many large cities!
Peter Milhado #45: Part II Neurosis
EXLUSIVE 4-3-14: Is Anyone Neurotic Out There? Check This Out! (What Happens in Psychotherapy - Part Two)
Dr. Peter Milhado, PH.D.
In my last article I distinguished between real suffering, which is imposed upon us by loss and fateful external events, and neurotic suffering which is ‘inauthentic suffering’, because we create it ourselves. The good news is, if we create our own suffering and are responsible for our neurotic symptoms of depression, anxiety, loneliness, obsessions etc., we can choose to undo them and heal. How?
Here’s an example. Many people were raised in a household of emotional chaos. At worst, their parents shamed them or intimidated them, overpowered and controlled them, or rejected and abandoned them, and so forth.
Apr. 3, 2014: WAV Crashing?
EXLUSIVE 4-3-14: Mediocre "Art"? WAV Bye Bye? NOT Free Speech?
THIS IS INTERESTING.... ~ Has Ventura's Government/Developer Subsidized alleged Artiste Housing "Project", called "WAV", Crashed and Burned?
FACEBLOKES:"[Someone named] Real Ventura Local SAID 'Hey, I had a conversation with one of my local successful artists today while out on my westside walk.. He was very disappointed with his interaction at the wav... He was given a show there and when he showed up to look at the space.. Well let's just say it was bad.. No lighting and torn up walls were the least of his concerns. He met with a young lady that told him the Wav no longer participates in ventura's first Friday. She also said it was up to him to bring people to see his show at what is suppose to be ventura's main art center.. I hope this was a miss understanding. The wav is a tax subsidized facility that was built as the center for our new art city. If this is true Ventura has failed horribly'"
