For the record

November 24, 2013

First AME Church: In the Oct. 29 California section, an article about turmoil at FAME Housing and FAME Assistance corporations quoted tenant Michael Reeder as saying that his apartment lost its Section 8 housing subsidy after a city inspector cited the unit for code violations. Reeder lost his Section 8 eligibility for other reasons. The article also said that the First African Methodist Episcopal Church had debts totaling more than $500,000 accumulated during the tenure of former pastor, the Rev. John J. Hunter. That claim should have been attributed to a lawsuit filed by the church and its current pastor against Hunter, alleging fraud. The lawsuit claims that the current pastor discovered $400,000 in past due payables and $200,000 in judgments against the church. The article also said that mold was found in some apartments operated by the FAME Housing during Hunter's tenure. City housing inspection documents do not mention mold in any units, although the former property manager and a tenant said a company was hired to remove mold from an apartment.

Sunday Conversation: In the Nov. 24 Calendar section, the Sunday Conversation feature said that Penn Jillette executive produced the film "Tim's Vermeer." Jillette produced the film.
