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. Supporters of the development are hoping to get approval to amend state legislation that would reduce the time allowed for environmental review and fast track plans for connecting local transit to the future sports and entertainment hub. Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts, Jr. confirmed that he is leading the lobbying…

Written by Thursday, August 24, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s council meeting began with a hearing to consider the Permits and Licenses Committee’s denial of a permit request submitted by Ellesa Maxie to house a third dog at 2703 W. 78th Street, Inglewood, CA, 90305. Maxie said she has been keeping her sister’s dog until another residence can be found. The animal is an emotional support dog, Maxie said, and lived with her sister until a new landlord threatened eviction if…

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…
There’s never been a more exciting time to be in Inglewood. Construction is well underway on the $2.6 billion home of the Rams and Chargers. The Forum is bringing the music industry’s greatest talent to our city. Now, the L.A. Clippers are looking to build a new privately funded arena, practice center and related facilities in the City of Champions. To start the process, we signed an exclusive negotiating agreement (ENA) identifying 80 acres for…
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s public council meeting focused primarily on the proposed L.A. Clippers Arena, and what it will mean for the future of residents. The council approved an amended Exclusive Negotiations Agreement with the Clippers, which will reduce the size of the area being considered for development. Inglewood Today’s cover story provides in depth coverage of that discussion. Additionally, Mayor James Butts and members of the Inglewood City Council approved the following: •A resolution…
By Steve Finley The Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers stayed true to form in their preseason openers. The Rams and the Dallas Cowboys played a close defensive dominated game with Los Angeles winning the contest 13-10 last Saturday at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Chargers looked good for the first few minutes of the game before being dominated by the Seattle Seahawks 48-17 last Sunday at the StubHub Center in Carson. Both…
By Veronica Mackey Prompted by rumors that some residents would be kicked out to make way for the proposed L.A. Clippers arena, attendance within Inglewood City Council Chambers was wall-to-wall. People lined up on Tuesday to take their turn at the mic. Many received fliers from an organization called IRATE (Inglewood Residents Against Taking and Eviction), which claimed the City of Inglewood would use eminent domain to remove families living in the vicinity of the…

Inglewood May Host 2026 World Cup

Written by Thursday, August 17, 2017
Inglewood is being considered as a potential host city for the 2026 FIFA World Cup soccer tournament, according to sources. The still-under-construction stadium and future home of the L.A. Rams and L.A. Chargers is in the running, along with Pasadena’s Rose Bowl and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The venues are being looked at, organizers said, as part of a joint bid by the U.S., Mexico and Canada. Forty-four North American cities were asked to…

The Hoods are Off

Written by Thursday, August 17, 2017
The vicious, hateful and senseless violence that took place in Charlottesville, VA over the weekend is a sad reminder of how racially divided we really are. After having a black man occupy the White House for 8 years, the creation of more black millionaires than ever before and what appeared to be more racial tolerance all around, Ku Klux Klan members made it clear that racism is very much alive and well. And not the covert kind of racism, but the kind that gets people killed. James Alex Fields Jr., 20, believed to be the driver of a car that…

Short, Not Sweet

Written by Thursday, August 10, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s council meeting was cut short when a woman demanded that the council make public results of a police investigation involving the officer-involved shooting deaths of Kisha Michael and Marquintan Sandlin. There was a brief exchange between the woman and Mayor James Butts. “They were asleep… and to have the officers shoot them is unheard of in this country,” the woman said. “You apparently know a lot. So you’d know the family’s…

Silicon Beach and the Digital Divide

Written by Thursday, August 10, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Silicon Beach. If you haven’t yet heard of it, you should know that this hotspot for tech-driven companies it is closer in distance than you think. It is driving up property values and creating thousands of new jobs, and is being blamed for displacing renters and small businesses. Unlike Silicon Valley in Northern California, home of Google and Facebook, Silicon Beach is not overwhelmingly geared toward technology jobs. Rather, the area tends…
As construction continues on the massive new football stadium and entertainment center, due to open in 2020, potential sponsors and suite owners got a preview of the finished product at the new stadium model center on Tuesday. Located in Playa Vista, about 15 minutes from the site, the new model is a dramatic display of what is to come. With a floor to ceiling video screen, it’s one spectacular way to advertise the new stadium.…
