The Power of a Good Idea

Written by Friday, October 13, 2017
Printing a weekly newspaper in this digital age can be challenging sometimes. But believe it or not, there are still many who like reading something tangible, which you can fold and read without the help of Wi-Fi. Realizing the rising cost of printing, I had to get creative. I decided Inglewood businesses were more than deserving of a contest that would inspire consumers and encourage local buying. And, given the record-breaking development in Inglewood now, I could think of nothing more timely. If we do not honor our own, who will? Thus, the “Best of Inglewood” contest—in which consumers voted…

The ceremony will celebrate the successful “Best of Inglewood” contest, which took place in August and September. It’s a free community event, and everyone is invited. Mayor…

NBA commissioner Adam Silver comments, “We have a rule that requires our players to stand for the anthem. It’s been a rule as long as I’ve been involved with the…

Affordable Living, Public Benefit

Written by Friday, October 13, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Affordable housing was the main focus of Tuesday’s Inglewood Council Meeting. Mayor James Butts announced several weeks ago that a housing trust fund was being started to help residents meet housing costs, in addition to programs already in place. A staffer from the Inglewood Housing Authority gave a report on affordable housing in the city—its history, current status and future. Affordable housing programs in Inglewood began in 1976, and serve both renters…

Where Was You At?

Written by Thursday, October 05, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Opposition over having an NBA basketball arena built in Inglewood again dominated the discussion at Tuesday’s council meeting during open remarks. A man from Uplift Inglewood—the coalition against the arena—said he was speaking “in support of homes before arenas.” He said Uplift has proposed that the land (at the south side of Century Blvd. and Prairie Avenue) be used for “true community investments.” A woman said she was told that the land…

By Mike Adams (Natural News) According to numerous media reports stemming from the Las Vegas mass shooting, concert-goers were blocked from fleeing and had little or no cover to protect them from the full-auto machine gun fire raining down on them. In desperation, some sought cover in porta-potties, according to media reports. Yet porta-potties are thin fiberglass structures that don’t stop bullets at all. Given that ISIS has now claimed responsibility for this mass shooting,…

Can You Hear Us Now?

Written by Thursday, October 05, 2017
The catastrophic chaos seen in Las Vegas Sunday night has taken violence in America to a new level. It is now the number 1 mass shooting in the country, due to the number of victims shot, killed and wounded. It’s a record we can do without. The timing could not have been more uncanny. It happened a week before the GOP was to vote on relaxing regulations on gun silencers. It caused the NRA to delay—not cancel—ad buys to get Republican lawmakers elected in Virginia. These are the good ol’ boys whose elections are being funded by gun money. So…

Trump: The Unmaking of America

Written by Thursday, September 28, 2017
A year ago, Colin Kaepernick got down on one knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback wanted to draw attention to the proliferation of police shootings of black men. Now, kneeling has become an emblem of solidarity for athletes and non-athletes alike. It has reawakened the debate over free speech, who should be allowed to publicly engage in it, and where. Donald Trump has likened the act to flag burning, called players who don’t stand during the anthem unpatriotic. He even tweeted his criticism of the players—and Kaepernick in particular—over 2 dozen…
