There’s never been a more exciting time to be in Inglewood. Construction is well underway on the $2.6 billion home of the Rams and Chargers. The Forum is bringing the music industry’s greatest talent to our city. Now, the L.A. Clippers are looking to build a new privately funded arena, practice center and related facilities in the City of Champions. To start the process, we signed an exclusive negotiating agreement (ENA) identifying 80 acres for…
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s public council meeting focused primarily on the proposed L.A. Clippers Arena, and what it will mean for the future of residents. The council approved an amended Exclusive Negotiations Agreement with the Clippers, which will reduce the size of the area being considered for development. Inglewood Today’s cover story provides in depth coverage of that discussion. Additionally, Mayor James Butts and members of the Inglewood City Council approved the following: •A resolution…
By Steve Finley The Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers stayed true to form in their preseason openers. The Rams and the Dallas Cowboys played a close defensive dominated game with Los Angeles winning the contest 13-10 last Saturday at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Chargers looked good for the first few minutes of the game before being dominated by the Seattle Seahawks 48-17 last Sunday at the StubHub Center in Carson. Both…

People lined up on Tuesday to take their turn at the mic. Many received fliers from an organization called IRATE (Inglewood Residents Against Taking and Eviction), which claimed the City of Inglewood would use eminent domain to remove families living in the vicinity of the…

The Hoods are Off

Written by Thursday, August 17, 2017
The vicious, hateful and senseless violence that took place in Charlottesville, VA over the weekend is a sad reminder of how racially divided we really are. After having a black man occupy the White House for 8 years, the creation of more black millionaires than ever before and what appeared to be more racial tolerance all around, Ku Klux Klan members made it clear that racism is very much alive and well. And not the covert kind of racism, but the kind that gets people killed. James Alex Fields Jr., 20, believed to be the driver of a car that…

Short, Not Sweet

Written by Thursday, August 10, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s council meeting was cut short when a woman demanded that the council make public results of a police investigation involving the officer-involved shooting deaths of Kisha Michael and Marquintan Sandlin. There was a brief exchange between the woman and Mayor James Butts. “They were asleep… and to have the officers shoot them is unheard of in this country,” the woman said. “You apparently know a lot. So you’d know the family’s…

Silicon Beach and the Digital Divide

Written by Thursday, August 10, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Silicon Beach. If you haven’t yet heard of it, you should know that this hotspot for tech-driven companies it is closer in distance than you think. It is driving up property values and creating thousands of new jobs, and is being blamed for displacing renters and small businesses. Unlike Silicon Valley in Northern California, home of Google and Facebook, Silicon Beach is not overwhelmingly geared toward technology jobs. Rather, the area tends…

Get the Upper Hand on School Bullies

Written by Thursday, August 10, 2017
Hearing about the tragic fate of Gabriel Taye, an 8 year-old black boy who took his own life as a result of being bullied, broke my heart. Not only is Gabriel among the youngest suicide victims I have heard about, but it points to a serious social problem that has turned deadly over the years. School bullies have been around forever, but what has changed is its reach and intensity. There are now more ways for bad guys and girls to intimidate their victims thanks to the Internet, social media sites, cell phones and videos. Gabriel hung himself with a…

By Veronica Mackey Last week, Inglewood Today reported that Madison Square Garden (MSG), owner of the Forum, filed a claim for damages against the City of Inglewood. That claim was followed by a lawsuit, filed July 28 by MSG.
