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…

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to decide whether U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jesus Mesa Jr. can be sued for killing an unarmed Mexican teenager. The shooting occurred in the concrete culvert that separates El Paso, Texas from Juarez, Mexico. The victim, Sergio Hernandez, 15, was playing a game of dare with three other friends, in which the boys would run and touch the fence separating the U.S. from Mexico, and then run back.…

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded the City of Inglewood’s Lease Revenue Bonds Series 2012 from Baa1 to A2. This is Inglewood’s second upgrade of lease revenue bonds.

Moody’s noted, “The rating upgrade incorporates the city's ongoing steps toward fiscal balance, most significant of which has included expenditure cuts, staff downsizing, and controlling unfunded liabilities. The large…

Are Republicans on the Verge of Civil War?

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
By Veronica Mackey Friday, October 7 may be the day in history that Donald Trump single-handedly split the Republican Party in half. It was on this day that the Trump campaign imploded over a leaked videotape of him making lewd remarks about women. At one point, Trump suggested he could—and probably did—get away with sexual assault. Newly married to his third wife Melania when the video was made in 2005, Trump bragged to Billy Bush…

If It Quacks Like A Duck, It Must Be Donald

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
With less than 4 weeks until the election, it unnerves me how dead-set some black folks are on voting for Donald Trump. There are those who will stick with him regardless of his obvious racism for reasons that are beyond me. If, there is one example that should change a black person’s mind about voting for Trump, it should be the Central Park 5. The term refers to 5 teenagers—4 African Americans and 1 Hispanic—who were pressured into falsely admitting to the brutal rape and assault of Trisha Meili, an affluent 28 year-old Wall Street executive. The boys spent between…
By Veronica Mackey Roland S. Martin, syndicated columnist and Host of “NewsOne Now,” said on Sunday that Fox News Analyst and host of the “Larry Elder Show” might need some medicine “because the brother’s in serious pain this morning.” The men went head-to-head last Saturday during a 3-hour debate in The Tabernacle at Faithful Central Bible Church in Inglewood. The debate and community forum was sponsored by Inglewood Today and Urban Family Communications, and broadcast…

Council Waits for No One

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s council meeting was so brief that several would-be attendees missed it. There was only one working elevator in the building, which made ascension to the 9th floor painfully slow. By the time the stranded ones arrived around 2:15, lights were out in the chamber and those in the meeting were leaving. Advice: arrive early! This is what the council approved: •Amendment to an agreement for legal advice, guidance and representation. The…

Kaine-Pence VP Debate

Written by Thursday, October 06, 2016
By Veronica Mackey On Tuesday, America watched vice-presidential nominees Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine (D) and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R ) duke it out on the debate stage, representing respective running mates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The men debated for 90 minutes at Virginia’s Longwood University. Dems Lose on Style Kaine, who has called himself “boring,” came out swinging, aggressively attacking Trump’s business record, refusal to disclose income tax returns, disparaging remarks against women…
