Charlie Murphy, comedian, actor, “Chappelle Show” star and Eddie Murphy's older brother, died Wednesday morning from leukemia, according to his publicist. He was 57. The self-described “hothead” worked as a bodyguard during the early years of his brother’s comedy career. He wanted Eddie to succeed so much that he’d pick a fight with anyone who didn’t laugh at his brother’s jokes when he performed. "It was to the point that, if I went to a…
Monday’s tragedy in San Bernardino will live on in the minds of students at North Park Elementary School for a long time—especially those who personally witnessed the shootings of their teacher, her assailant husband and two classmates. Cedric Anderson, 53, was estranged from his newlywed wife, Karen Elaine Smith, also 53. Anderson came to her classroom, where she taught first to fourth graders, and without a word, shot her to death before turning the gun…

Written by Friday, April 14, 2017

It all happened on Sunday on a flight from Chicago to Louisville. United wanted to make room for 4 of its employees, but the plane was filled to capacity. After offering financial compensation with no takers, officials chose…

How to Spot Real Fake News

Written by Thursday, April 06, 2017
There was a time when the news was either considered relevant news or non-news. The latter consisted of information that was so mild or inconsequential that it wasn’t even worthy of being published. Now, “fake news,” has become woven into the fabric of the free press, to the extent that it’s hard to distinguish what’s real from what’s fabricated. Sometimes fake news is obvious, as in the case of a headline announcing the engagement between actors Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. Snopes had this to say: As far as we know, there’s never been any hint of romance between them…

Oakland Raiders Headed to Las Vegas

Written by Friday, March 31, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Neither promises of a shiny new $1.3 billion stadium, a deeply loyal fan base, nor Bay Area roots that go back 57 years were enough to keep the Oakland Raiders from the bright lights of Las Vegas. Nevada lawmakers approved $750 million in public funding for a planned domed stadium, and NFL owners voted 31-1 on Monday at the Annual League Meeting to approve the Raiders' proposal to relocate. The decision ends…

Councilman George Dotson is running for re-election in District 1 and District 2 Councilman Alex Padilla is running unopposed. Both were elected in 2013, respectively unseating the late Councilman Mike Stevens and long time Councilwoman Judy Dunlap. Since their elections, the City of Inglewood has experienced an upward spiral of growth which shows no signs of slowing down. The purchase, $100 million renovation and reopening of the Fabulous Forum in 2014 signaled the first realization that major change in Inglewood was on the horizon. Since then, a…
