How to Raise Your Voice

Written by Thursday, July 17, 2014
By now, you have probably heard about Terry Bartley, a North Carolina father that made a video demonstrating what happens when young kids are left alone inside a hot car. He was motivated by the death of a 22 month-old toddler named Cooper Harris, whose father left him in a car for nine hours. The story appears in this week’s edition of Inglewood Today. There was also another story about a young mother who left her baby strapped in the car seat while she ran into a convenience store. It only took 10 seconds to have a carjacker drive away…

Our Time in the Sun

Written by Thursday, July 10, 2014
As Inglewood Today celebrates its 20th anniversary, our efforts have come full circle, evidenced by the prestigious coverage of the city in the Los Angeles Business Journal (July 2014). There are rare moments when all the positive intentions, hopes and wishes---things you want to believe but lack the evidence of—actually become reality. There are times when you realize that life really is good, dreams really do come true, and that nothing is too good to happen or last. The article (which I encourage everyone to read) is another testament to what many stakeholders have been saying recently and what Corporate…

Two Victories Won

Written by Wednesday, June 04, 2014
By Willie Brown Congratulations to Autumn Burke for winning Tuesday’s primary election. It certainly was a breath of fresh air to see a young person so focused and dedicated to her run for the State Assembly (62nd District), and such a nice person too.

Although it is far from over, she is getting a lot of buzz and most feel she will take it all in November. There can only be one winner, of course. But I would be remiss if I did…

Written by Wednesday, May 28, 2014
By Willie Brown As far as I know, the newspaper is not being sold, unless you count the thousands of dollars allegedly funneled through the Simona Farisse campaign to help buy the 62nd Assembly District seat. According to, Randall and Teka-Lark Fleming, editor and publisher of the Morningside Park Chronicle, have all but abandoned their one-time supporter, former District One Inglewood Council member Mike Stevens (also running for the 62nd Assembly seat) to follow the money. Remember, MPC is the same publication that Stevens and former Councilmember Judy Dunlap used to write for. As sitting council members, this was…

Don’t Mind the Haters

Written by Thursday, April 24, 2014
I don’t understand why there are always a few people intent on creating negativity, no matter how well things are going. It happens all the time. People naturally gravitate toward success, but not everyone has good intentions. Some want to be a part of success so they can enjoy it, contribute to it and be blessed by it. Others come just looking to exploit it. They have sinister intentions. I am talking about a few shady characters lurking around in Inglewood, trying to bring the city down. Some have lived here for decades and refuse to leave. Yet, they complain…
