My Message to Graduates

Written by Thursday, May 25, 2017
As this school year comes to a close, graduates will, no doubt, think about the things they can finally leave behind like books, getting up early and going to classes they don’t like. They’ll be glad to ditch the studying—even if only for a summer. If you are a graduate, there will be a lot of emphasis on what you’re graduating from, but there may not be much thought on what you will be graduating to. You may or may not know what’s next. High school, college, graduate school, a job or a year off to figure it out. There…
Introduced by Sen. Steven Bradford Sacramento – The California Senate approved SB 620 (Bradford) on a vote of 22-14 to allow a court, in the interest of justice, to use judicial discretion when applying a sentence enhancement for using or discharging a firearm, consistent with other enhancements. Senator Steven Bradford (D-Inglewood) spoke about a case where a 17-year old was given a 30-year to life sentence when it was not clear if he or another…
Local police departments have prepared for extra security, particularly around areas and events which draw large crowds. On Tuesday night at the Forum in Inglewood—one day after 22 concertgoers were killed in a suicide attack in Manchester, UK—security was heightened at the Chris Brown concert. Inglewood, like Los Angeles and many other cities across the nation, is beefing up security with increased police presence, and also asking the public to be vigilant about suspicious looking…

A Friend, A Home, A Mortgage

Written by Thursday, May 25, 2017
By Glenda Brass, MBA There comes a time over the course of any renter's time in a particular piece of real estate where it seems that the payments are providing a great stream of income for a landlord but little for you. Indeed, as incomes begin to creep up and the ability to handle at least a portion of a mortgage becomes a possibility, more and more renters are beginning to feel that way and…

City On Track Financially This Year

Written by Thursday, May 25, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s council meeting began with two public hearings. The first hearing outlined new penalties and administrative fines for fireworks violations in the City of Inglewood. The Inglewood Municipal Code has been amended to provide stricter guidelines (including the criminal penalty and fines) for dealing with unlawful use or possession of illegal fireworks. Basically, the City only allows the use of Safe and Sane Fireworks, which are the only fireworks sold legally in…

Written by Thursday, May 25, 2017
NFL team owners and officials, and developers of the NFL stadium in Inglewood are looking up, despite an announcement last week that the planned $2.6 billion stadium would be delayed by one year. In a statement, the Rams said, “This new target gives us flexibility to accommodate any additional delays that may arise while still delivering an unparalleled experience upon opening.” According to the developer, LA Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park, “Southern California…

The Case for Due Process

Written by Thursday, May 18, 2017
By Veronica Mackey At Tuesday’s council meeting, activists who expressed frustration over the pace of investigations into the shooting deaths of Kisha Michael and Marquintan Sandlin by police were given advice by others in the audience. The couple was killed 15 months ago. Investigations by the police department and L.A. County District Attorney’s Office are currently being conducted. A woman brought a bouquet of pink flowers to illustrate that Michael’s children couldn’t give flowers to…
Sexual assault trial begins next month. Jury selection will begin next week in Philadelphia in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial. The defamed comedian and actor said he won’t testify, but had plenty to say to Michael Smerconish on Sirius XM.

By Veronica Mackey A small group of Trump supporters tested the mettle of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Inglewood) last Saturday and got run out of the building. The fiery, 78 year-old Congresswoman, whom Millennials refer to as “Auntie Maxine, ” shut down the hecklers while simultaneously informing constituents about serious issues facing lawmakers in Washington. Foes and supporters piled into the Inglewood High School auditorium for a town hall meeting held at Inglewood High School, 231…

Can We Say the I-Word Yet?

Written by Thursday, May 18, 2017
Ever since Trump was inaugurated as president in January, political foes have been waiting for his demise. Resistance rose to a new high, stirred in part by disgruntled Hillary Clinton voters. The most immediate proof was the thousands of women’s and anti-Trump rallies that took place the day after President No. 45 was sworn in. Some occurred the day after the election. It didn’t take long, though, for Trump to become his own worst enemy. First there was the failed travel ban on Muslim countries, and hiccups in the healthcare plan. Now, in office barely 4 months, Trump is at…

Help A Young Mother Be The Best She Can Be

Written by Thursday, May 11, 2017
A common complaint that I hear from older people is that younger parents are not taking enough time with their kids. They point out that Millennials are growing up without a sense of connection to family—that technology has taken over their lives to the point that they lack basic social skills. I agree that this is true to a certain extent, but the question is always, “what are we going to do about it.” With Mother’s Day weekend upon us, I think this is the perfect time to come together and support our mothers. Remember, parenting doesn’t come with a…

Written by Thursday, May 11, 2017
By Veronica Mackey The Inglewood council meeting on Tuesday was adjourned early after a young man at the podium refused to leave when his time was up. The man was one of several activists who have been showing up regularly since the one year anniversary of the shooting deaths of Kisha Michael and Marquintan Sandlin by Inglewood police. The group is demanding answers that Mayor James Butts said he cannot give, as his office has…
Now that FBI Director James Comey has been fired, Washington politicians are left with a myriad of questions. Chief among them, is who should continue with the investigation into the Russian interference during the 2016 presidential campaign. Until Tuesday night, Comey was in charge, and had reportedly asked for more funding. Republican and Democratic lawmakers are asking for an independent special prosecutor to take over. The firing came unexpectedly. In fact, Comey was at a…
