By Benjamin Siegeln It won't be business as usual on Capitol Hill tomorrow. Former FBI Director James Comey's appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee is expected to captivate lawmakers -- and grind some official business to a halt. "This will be watched as much as the Watergate hearings," said Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, who plans to watch the hearing.

Celebrating Black Music Month

Written by Friday, June 09, 2017
At the end of the day, there is nothing that makes a black gathering come together better than black music. Second to food, black music provides “magic” that makes every setting special, whether it is R&B, soul, blues, jazz, gospel or hip hop. June is the official time to observe Black Music Month, and like Black History Month, an ideal time to learn and teach others about African American culture. Although popularized by nearly every race and culture, the history of black music in America was born from pain. Gospel and blues are expressions of injustice and oppression, whether it…

June is Black Music Month

Written by Friday, June 09, 2017
With black music being such an intricate part of African American life, many of us might not feel the need to celebrate it as a national observance. Still, Black Music Month has its rightful place in history. The observance, honoring the vast musical contributions of black artists, was first declared in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter. In 2000, President Bill Clinton signed the African-American Music Bill, which formally established June as Black Music Month nationally.…

What You Should Know About Opioids

Written by Thursday, June 01, 2017
Tiger Woods’ recent brush with the law may have saved his life. Although the 41 year-old golf legend didn’t have a trace of alcohol in his blood, he did test positive for drugs—among them, an opioid called Vicodin. Woods was prescribed Vicodin for a back injury, and is recovering from back surgery. While he escaped unharmed—he was in his car asleep at the wheel, but stopped—this story could have ended far worse. Vicodin, the brand…

Freedom of Speech

By Veronica Mackey Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Black Lives Matter were subjects of criticism by a few residents at Tuesday’s council meeting. Long time resident Ray Davis who attended the City’s Memorial Day ceremony honoring veterans, said Waters “desecrated” the memory of his father, a military man. When pressed for details, Davis said Black Lives Matter members disrupted the ceremony, and Waters invited one of the leaders to sit up front with her. “They (Black…
It’s no secret that in communities of color, payday loan companies are everywhere. Easy money lenders know Black and Hispanic Americans are paid the least, making it harder for them to make ends meet between paydays. They see us coming. Advocates of this type of predatory lending argue that they are providing a valuable service by offering help to those who could not get access to money in other ways, due to poor credit. But if their intentions are so good, why did Republicans try so hard to protect them from reasonable government regulations. The L.A. Times did an excellent…

My Message to Graduates

Written by Thursday, May 25, 2017
As this school year comes to a close, graduates will, no doubt, think about the things they can finally leave behind like books, getting up early and going to classes they don’t like. They’ll be glad to ditch the studying—even if only for a summer. If you are a graduate, there will be a lot of emphasis on what you’re graduating from, but there may not be much thought on what you will be graduating to. You may or may not know what’s next. High school, college, graduate school, a job or a year off to figure it out. There…

A Friend, A Home, A Mortgage

Written by Thursday, May 25, 2017
By Glenda Brass, MBA There comes a time over the course of any renter's time in a particular piece of real estate where it seems that the payments are providing a great stream of income for a landlord but little for you. Indeed, as incomes begin to creep up and the ability to handle at least a portion of a mortgage becomes a possibility, more and more renters are beginning to feel that way and…

City On Track Financially This Year

Written by Thursday, May 25, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s council meeting began with two public hearings. The first hearing outlined new penalties and administrative fines for fireworks violations in the City of Inglewood. The Inglewood Municipal Code has been amended to provide stricter guidelines (including the criminal penalty and fines) for dealing with unlawful use or possession of illegal fireworks.
