Written by Thursday, October 26, 2017
Wednesday, Oct. 18 was a night the Inglewood business community will not forget. It was the Best of Inglewood Awards Ceremony, the first of many to come. I must say, I could not be happier to see so many business owners come out. They are the life blood of this community. With all the progress that we’re seeing in Inglewood on a daily basis, it is only fitting that we have a celebration. And what a celebration it was! We were treated to delicious food by Dulan’s Soul Food (who was one of two overall highest vote-getters) and Lavender Blue…

While Puerto Rico struggles to recover from a devastating hurricane and unsympathetic president, California firefighters have been kept busy trying to contain a series of wildfires in Northern California. Some of them are so bad that a Sonoma County Sheriff said some of the victim’s bodies are so badly charred that it may be impossible to confirmed their identity. "Some of (the remains) are merely ashes and bones," he said. Thirty-six people have been killed…

The Power of a Good Idea

Written by Friday, October 13, 2017
Printing a weekly newspaper in this digital age can be challenging sometimes. But believe it or not, there are still many who like reading something tangible, which you can fold and read without the help of Wi-Fi. Realizing the rising cost of printing, I had to get creative. I decided Inglewood businesses were more than deserving of a contest that would inspire consumers and encourage local buying. And, given the record-breaking development in Inglewood now, I could think of nothing more timely. If we do not honor our own, who will? Thus, the “Best of Inglewood” contest—in which consumers voted…

Affordable Living, Public Benefit

Written by Friday, October 13, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Affordable housing was the main focus of Tuesday’s Inglewood Council Meeting. Mayor James Butts announced several weeks ago that a housing trust fund was being started to help residents meet housing costs, in addition to programs already in place. A staffer from the Inglewood Housing Authority gave a report on affordable housing in the city—its history, current status and future. Affordable housing programs in Inglewood began in 1976, and serve both renters…

By Mike Adams (Natural News) According to numerous media reports stemming from the Las Vegas mass shooting, concert-goers were blocked from fleeing and had little or no cover to protect them from the full-auto machine gun fire raining down on them. In desperation, some sought cover in porta-potties, according to media reports. Yet porta-potties are thin fiberglass structures that don’t stop bullets at all.
