Dr. Vincent Matthews has announced he is stepping down from his post as state-appointed trustee of the Inglewood Unified School District to become superintendent of San Francisco's public schools.

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…

My Endorsement for City Council

Written by Friday, March 31, 2017
Next Tuesday, April 4th, Inglewood voters will elect or re-elect city council members. 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…

A Little About Reverse Mortgage

Written by Friday, March 31, 2017
By Glenda Brass, MBA Lately I’ve had quite a few questions surrounding reverse mortgages. Below, I’ve provided some general information. Though there’s a lot more analysis one should do prior to deciding whether a reverse mortgage is right for them, this will provide some basic understanding. When you have a regular mortgage, you pay the lender every month to buy your home over time. In a reverse mortgage, you get a loan in which the…
By Veronica Mackey According to the California Center for Disease Control, 18.5 percent of California high school students report bullying on school property. While educators work hard to combat the problem, author, martial arts and bullying expert James Gavsie says our schools are falling way short. “It’s not their fault. Schools are doing some amazing things with our kids, but they are not set up, nor do they have the personnel or expertise to effectively…

WINNIPEG, Manitoba/OTTAWA– As Trump supporters wait to see what will happen with the proposed wall south of the border, America’s northern neighbors are dealing with their own border concerns. Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapproves of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday. An article by GlobalNews.ca,…
The plot thickened on Wednesday when House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes suggested that intelligence agencies monitoring foreign officials may have “incidentally” picked up communications of Trump transition team members. Although the bipartisan intelligence team, which includes Nunes (R-Tulare, CA) and fellow Intelligence Committee member Rep. Adam Schiff, (D-Burbank, CA), found no evidence to support Trumps claims that former President Obama wiretapped him, Republicans are already jumping on the bandwagon, suggesting the finding supports the…

‘No Evidence’ Found of Obama Wiretapping

Written by Thursday, March 16, 2017
President Donald Trump’s allegations that he was wiretapped by President Barack Obama during the 2016 presidential campaign has, so far, proven false. Since Trump tweeted this as a fact on March 4, the FBI and top Congressional officials have been scrambling to uncover evidence.
