The council voted to adopt the Amended Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Salary Ordinance to include the Inglewood Police Officers Association negotiated salary increases. The ordinance was introduced August 22, 2017. During final public comments, long time resident Ray Davis noted how developers are now making good use of vacant properties. “I was on Hazel Street and I…
State lawmakers introduced a bill last week to limit the environmental review process by the California Environmental Quality Act on all rail, bus and related transit projects for the 2028 L.A. Olympics and the proposed L.A. Clippers arena in Inglewood. The bill would exempt CEQA, the state’s primary environmental law, governing development. The law, known as CEQA, requires developers to disclose and minimize a project’s impact on the environment, often a time-consuming and costly process…

Written by Thursday, September 07, 2017

A Win for Venus, New Baby for Serena

Written by Thursday, September 07, 2017
Venus, now 37, is an old woman in tennis years. But the senior player held her own and beat out two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, 27, on Tuesday in a three-set contest at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. The two-time U.S. Open champ showed everybody how tennis is done, in spite of having Sjorgen's syndrome, an incurable auto-immune disease that causes fatigue and joint pain. Venus and sister, fellow tennis superstar Serena Williams, who…

It’s All You Can Do

Written by Thursday, September 07, 2017
Devastating hurricanes in Texas and Gulf Coast areas, raging wildfires on the West Coast, and an overly zealous North Korean leader testing nuclear missiles--it’s been a rough 2 weeks. It seems we barely catch our breath before the next devastating news cycle begins. Fear can paralyze you until you feel helpless, and think there is nothing you can do. But there is something you can do, even if it may seem insignificant. In times of devastation, taking action and helping others can go a long way. Here are a few things you can do now: •Prepare, prepare, and prepare. Watching…

VMAs Return to Forum in Inglewood

Written by Thursday, August 31, 2017
Inglewood became a temporary oasis of music royalty last weekend, as the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards returned to the Forum. The A-list event, hosted by Katy Perry, was a combination of intergalactic entertainment, explosive visual effects and political commentary. It was very dramatic for sure, but these are dramatic times, as several artists and presenters reminded the viewing audience. Their messages were heard loud and clear—equality, justice, unity, peace, self-love, tolerance, and compassion for…
This is the question that remains unanswered as Inglewood Today’s business promotion comes to an end. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated—all the voters and those generous co-sponsors: Papa John’s Pizza, Metro and the Inglewood Airport Area Chamber of Commerce. Thanks also to those who left positive comments. Your encouragement is much appreciated The “Best of Inglewood” is officially closed, but the celebration won’t end until final votes are tallied and winners get their bragging rights. At the end of September, Inglewood Today will publish a special edition (print and online) which includes all the…
By JD Heyes (Natural News) In the days leading up to Hurricane Harvey, Texans in the storm’s path were warned to evacuate or, if they were going to chose to remain in their homes and shelter in place instead, to at least do authorities a favor and write their names and Social Security numbers in Sharpie on their forearms — so their bodies could be identified later. There is some morbid logic to that. Many…

Thanks for the Love and Laughter, Dick Gregory

Written by Thursday, August 24, 2017
What can be said about Dick Gregory that has not already been said? The 84 year-old civil rights activist, comedian, author and health guru who broke color barriers and died last weekend following a bacterial infection, was so many things rolled into one. His incredible and often humorous insight into the world at large often made folks pause and think about their lives and conditions. As is many times the case when people pass on,…

Total Eclipse: The Greatest Show Above Earth

Written by Thursday, August 24, 2017
By Veronica Mackey It’s been 38 years since a solar eclipse occurred in the U.S. and 99 years since a total solar eclipse has swept across the U.S. from coast to coast. The next partial eclipse will be visible in 2024. This once-in-a-lifetime event when the moon completely covers the sun brought a divided country together to witness something way bigger than mankind. Massive traffic jams and sold-out hotel rooms evidenced its significance. Briefly, various…
The City of Inglewood and the Los Angeles Clippers are getting help from Sacramento that could significantly speed up development of the proposed basketball arena.

Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts, Jr. confirmed that he is leading the lobbying…

Hate is Being Fought in a New Way

Written by Thursday, August 24, 2017
Last week, I talked about how video is causing violent racists to be arrested and fired from their jobs after being identified. Now big business has joined the cause to fight domestic terrorism. In response to growing efforts to turn back the clock of American history to the 1950s and before, conscientious companies are fighting the war on racism Millennial-style. Reports surfaced this week of various websites and apps which are banning hate groups from using their service. Technology being what it is, users no longer have the luxury of simply re-registering under pseudo names because companies can pinpoint a…

Metro to Launch Campaign for Rider Etiquette

Written by Thursday, August 24, 2017
Taking a Metro bus or train around L.A. can be a really rough ride. Passengers can be obnoxiously rude, selfish and inconsiderate. It’s an adventure to be sure, because you never know when you will encounter someone who is high on drugs or mentally ill or one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Most tread very carefully, and ignore bad behavior out of concern for their personal safety. But bad behavior on public transit…
