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…
By Veronica Mackey On Tuesday, a public hearing was held to consider appealing the Inglewood Planning Commission’s denial of a special use permit to allow a beauty salon with 300 feet of a similar use at 10800 S. Prairie Avenue. Miguel Tellez applied for a permit for a barber shop which specializes in children’s haircuts. The proposed shop would be located within a two-story shopping center which includes a car wash, gas station and AM/PM…
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…
As President Donald Trump continues to push his immigration policies, which include mass deportation of undocumented immigrants, churches and government leaders throughout L.A. County are preparing for a showdown. Last week, the Malibu City Council voted 3-2 in favor of a resolution to become a sanctuary city. Backers said the move is a chance for Malibu’s privileged to stand up for the city’s vulnerable population. Los Angeles has officially vowed to defy federal immigration officials…

By Glenda Brass, MBA A just-released report reveals underwater properties are steadily declining, with more than one million shifting status in 2016—a possible turning point in the ongoing inventory crisis. According to ATTOM Data Solutions’ Year-End 2016 U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report, the amount of “seriously” underwater properties in the U.S. decreased by over one million last year, while the amount of “equity rich” properties increased by 1.3 million. Seriously underwater is defined as…

Written by Thursday, March 16, 2017
On Wednesday, jurors convicted fallen Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca of obstructing a federal investigation into abuses in county jails and lying to cover it up.

Jurors convicted Baca of three felonies: obstruction of justice, conspiracy and making false statements to federal investigators. A national law enforcement figure, Baca led the sheriff’s department…

‘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. Whether real or imagined, Trump’s accusation has alarmed intelligence leaders on both sides. However, the bipartisan consensus is that “there is no basis for that claim whatsoever.” “We don’t have any…

‘People, Not Police’

Written by Thursday, March 16, 2017
By Veronica Mackey A controversial decision to purchase an armored vehicle for the Inglewood Police Department and pressure to release information about a year-old police shooting, which ended in the deaths of a young couple, drew harsh reactions from residents at Tuesday’s council meeting. The public session ended with Mayor James Butts and council members walking out. People packed the council chamber to express their discontent over the armored car purchase. “We’re not one of…
It’s no secret that black men are skilled athletes. While some may call it a stereotype, it is no less true. Significant achievements of black men in sports conform to the notion that they are naturally bigger, tougher and stronger. But the same thing that may give black men respect on the football field is met with fear on the street. Unfortunately, according to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the world views black men as physically taller, heavier and stronger (and therefore more threatening) than white men even when the facts prove otherwise. These…

Persevere

Written by Thursday, March 09, 2017
On Wednesday, I was invited to tour the new and improved Centinela Hospital. A lot of positive changes have occurred since the hospital changed ownership, and this expansion is just one of them. Today, Centinela Hospital has a reputation for being one of the highest-rated health facilities in the area. Residents can be proud to claim the hospital as belonging to our city. In the 90s, residents had three nearby hospitals to go to: Centinela and Daniel Freeman in Inglewood, and Robert F. Kennedy in Hawthorne. The latter two were closed years ago, much to everyone’s disappointment. And while another…

Hardy Street. The event was held to showcase its newly expanded Emergency Room (ER), as part of a larger effort underway. Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts, Jr. City discussed the hospital against the backdrop of Inglewood’s current revitalization efforts. Centinela Hospital Chief Executive Officer Linda Bradley discussed the hospital’s…
While GOP leaders are pushing to roll out the new alternative to the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare by Easter, Democrats and some Republicans are saying “not so fast.” Critics say the Republican-sponsored healthcare bill, known as the American Health Care Act, would leave millions of lower income individuals without coverage. Currently, 20 million people have health coverage under Obamacare. About 1.2 million are enrolled in California. Subsidies from the federal government are used to…

Written by Thursday, March 09, 2017
By Veronica Mackey “He was the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland from 1984 until his retirement in 2013. As a pioneer in neurosurgery, Carson's achievements include performing the only successful separation of conjoined twins joined at the back of the head, pioneering the first successful neurosurgical procedure on a fetus inside the womb, performing the first completely successful separation of type-2 vertical craniopagus twins…”--Wikipedia This abbreviated biography of Dr. Ben…
