Making Trump Accountable

Written by Thursday, November 10, 2016
It’s the day after the shock. The day after learning Donald Trump was elected the 45th U.S. president. Many feared this day and others felt it would never happen. Well, it happened, like it or not. So now, those of us crushed by Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat are left with picking up the pieces of what has been a particularly hard, long and bitter campaign. We’ll all have to put on our big boy and girl pants to survive. Trump made a lot of promises when we ran for office. And although he was not the candidate that many of…

My Endorsements for November 8th

Written by Friday, November 04, 2016
Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are my choices for president and vice president for obvious reasons. Clinton brings tons of experience to this office and Trump’s unsteady temperament, possible friendly relationship a Russian dictator, and horrific remarks about anyone non-male or non-white make him downright dangerous. In the race for U.S. Senate, current Attorney General Kamala Harris has my vote over Rep. Loretta Sanchez. She fought hard for Californians who lost their homes in the massive foreclosure scandal and I believe she’ll be just as tough in Washington. Speaking of fighting, anyone who knows Rep. Maxine Waters knows she doesn’t…
By Thomas Bunn Last week the conversation at City Council was over extending parking permits. This week, the Permits and Licenses Committee along with City staff held a public hearing to consider the P&L Committee’s denial of a business license renewal request from Los Dos Hermanos to operate music boxes, as well as their request for the operation of a billiard room. Deputy City Manager, Ms. Yakema Decatur provided a staff report on the matter,…
By Veronica Mackey After his bombshell announcement to reopen the Hillary Clinton email investigation last week, FBI Director James Comey has gone silent—leaving the media and political pundits to ponder what the vaguely written letter released 11 days before the presidential election could possibly mean. We only know that there may be new evidence in the case, but so far nothing has been found. The letter was Comey’s heads up to Republican Congressional leaders that…

Remembering E.J. Jackson

Written by Friday, November 04, 2016
A local legend and philanthropist E.J. Jackson has died, just weeks shy of his highly popular Thanksgiving turkey giveaway. Jackson was the founder of Jackson Limousine Service, one of the top transportation companies in Southern California. Heavily patronized by A-list celebrities and regular folks, Jackson is the go-to limousine service for concerts, proms, weddings, funerals and other special events. Family members said he died of a massive heart attack Tuesday night at a local hospital.…
A male birth control shot exists and is nearly 96% percent effective at preventing pregnancy, researchers found, but a study on the contraceptive ended early after men taking it reported negative side effects including mood swings, an altered libido and acne. In other words, they experienced side effects faced by women already taking birth control every day. In the study, published last week in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, researchers found only four…
Watching interviews with black Trump supporters reminds me of one of the most tragic events in modern history. I’m talking about the Jonestown Massacres. On November 18, 1978, 918 people, many African American, were brainwashed into committing suicide because of false prophet Jim Jones. Being very religious and believing Jones was the closest thing to the Messiah on Earth, the group followed him to a compound in Guyana, South America, which he built up as paradise. Paradise, however, was not cheap. The fiery preacher convinced the vulnerable bunch to support his ministry by giving him their hard earned savings and…
A rogue loan officer was sentenced this week to 18 months in federal prison for approving bad church loans. Paul Ryan pleaded guilty to scamming his former employer, Broadway Federal Bank by lending to churches that were poor credit risks. Working with loan brokers, Ryan pocketed $354,000 in kickbacks in exchange for approving the loans from 2007 through 2010. He was ordered to pay the same amount in restitution on Monday to Broadway Federal. During…

LA Sparks Win WNBA Championship

Written by Thursday, October 27, 2016
It’s been 14 long years since the L.A. Sparks won a WNBA Championship. But fate smiled on them Oct. 20, in a stunning defeat over the Minnesota Lynx 77-76. The dramatic nail biter of a game came to a dramatic finish when forward Nneka Ogwumike hit a fallaway shot with three seconds left on the clock. The play helped seal her title of “2016 WNBA Most Valuable Player.” Target Center exploded and champagne began to…

Self-Employment Mortgages Are Much Simpler

Written by Thursday, October 27, 2016
By Glenda Brass, MBA For the 14 million self-employed borrowers nationwide, it's getting easier to get approved for a mortgage. Recently, Fannie Mae issued new loan guidelines related to self-employment income. Some of the highlights include a documentation reduction from two years of federal income tax returns to one, in certain cases; and, a new income calculation for business owners with little or no history of distributions. The new loan guidelines are also friendlier toward…

Parking Permits Extended in Inglewood

Written by Thursday, October 27, 2016
Last week, traffic concerns dominated the Inglewood Council meeting. On Tuesday, attention was focused on parking. A public hearing was held to consider amending the Inglewood Municipal Code to provide permit parking on Glasgow Avenue (from 350 feet north of Hillcrest Blvd. to Spruce Avenue), Spruce Avenue (from Hindry Avenue to Glasgow Avenue) and on Hillcrest Blvd. (from Hindry Avenue to Glasgow Avenue). The council approved permits for businesses in these areas to allow employees…
Eleven year-old resident makes film about his experience As many as 10,000 students and millions online said no to bullying last week in Inglewood. The Be Strong LIVE Tour came to the Forum, giving young people a voice and support for what has become a major public health and safety issue. And a rising star in Inglewood produced a documentary about his experiences as a survivor of bullying. Working with the Los Angeles County Office…
The third and final debate between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump got even uglier on Wednesday, each making personal attacks against the other. It was obvious they did not like each other and tempers flared as the debate went on. A pivotal moment came when Trump refused to say if he would accept the result of next month's presidential election if he lost. He told Fox News moderator Chris Wallace "I will keep…

Build It And They Will Come

Written by Thursday, October 20, 2016
Based on a few comments made in previous weeks about attendance at council meetings, one might get the impression that 2pm meetings are the kiss of death. Some have even accused the Inglewood City Council of conspiring to keep the public from getting information by scheduling regular public meetings in the afternoon. They argue that people have to work and cannot get to the meetings, and that we should bring back 7pm meetings instead. Well, the meeting held on Oct. 18 debunks this theory. It was held at 2pm and there were not enough seats available for everyone. Most stood…

Who’s on Your Ballot?

Written by Thursday, October 20, 2016
A look at national, state and local candidates There is no doubt that the presidential race has stolen the spotlight from state and local races in terms of media coverage. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and her vice presidential pick Tim Kaine have been embroiled in an usually contentious battle against Republican rival Donald Trump and vice presidential candidate Mike Pence. It’s really nasty—even by Washington’s standards. The daily barrage of insults and scandals, leaked emails…
