Top 5 Ways 9/11 has Changed America

Written by Thursday, September 14, 2017

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month!

Written by Thursday, September 14, 2017

Roybal (D-Los Angeles), and first proclaimed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1968. Rep. Esteban E. Torres (D-Pico Rivera) wrote a bill expanding the observance to a full month, which was signed by President Ronald Reagan 20 years later in 1988.…

On Tuesday, both houses of the California legislature passed a resolution that will immortalize former President Barack Obama. A portion of the Ventura Freeway (134), between the Glendale (2) and Foothill (210) freeways will be named the President Barack H. Obama Freeway. The dedicated portion of the highway is the same stretch Obama drove from his apartment in Pasadena when he attended Occidental College in Eagle Rock from 1979 to 1981. He would later move…

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…

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…
