Home Town Paper Makes For a Better Home Town

Written by Wednesday, May 28, 2014
By Mark F. Weinberg To be forthright, I am a newspaper junkie. At the age of nine, I began delivering them. By the time I was eleven I was hooked on reading them. At sixteen I wallpapered my entire bedroom with months of Los Angeles Herald Examiner headlines and had my first brush with neighborhood celebrity when the paper published a photo of it. One of my parting regrets from this news-filled planet will surely…

Maya Angelou Dead at 86

Written by Wednesday, May 28, 2014
By Veronica Mackey I don’t recall the exact year that I drove to UC Irvine to see Dr. Maya Angelou. I only knew this was a moment I did not want to miss. I didn’t invite anyone else, not wanting to risk someone making me late. The auditorium was packed, no doubt, with scores of writers like myself, hoping for words of wisdom, some magical advice to make them great and Pulitzer Prize-worthy. She came…

Is the Morningside Park Chronicle for Sale?

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 2urbangirls.com, 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…

7 Ways To Self-Invest In Your 20’s

Written by Thursday, April 24, 2014
By Thomas Bunn For 20-somethings, self-indulgence is synonymous with life up to this point. We party hard, do what makes us happy right now, study hard to get the job, to get the money, to pay for more partying later. We’re utterly self-absorbed and naïve to what truly lies ahead. As more and more blacks and Latinos enter 4-year universities and colleges, without proper guidance on investment, we could be setting ourselves up for tremendous…

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…
