Get the Upper Hand on School Bullies

Written by Thursday, August 10, 2017
Hearing about the tragic fate of Gabriel Taye, an 8 year-old black boy who took his own life as a result of being bullied, broke my heart. Not only is Gabriel among the youngest suicide victims I have heard about, but it points to a serious social problem that has turned deadly over the years. School bullies have been around forever, but what has changed is its reach and intensity. There are now more ways for bad guys and girls to intimidate their victims thanks to the Internet, social media sites, cell phones and videos. Gabriel hung himself with a…

Time to Show Why Inglewood is the Best

Written by Thursday, July 27, 2017
Since the Fabulous Forum was reopened more than 3 years ago, Inglewood has been reinventing itself at a rapid pace. Looking back, it’s amazing how far the city has come in such a short amount of time. And when we look ahead, signs of success are all that can be seen. The sleepy community that folks drove through to get to the airport is fast becoming the destination city where people will want to come and shop, be entertained and just hang out. When I thought about other places where I’ve lived, I could think of no other city in…

There seems no clear path forward now. President Donald Trump said perhaps the best thing do to is to let ObamaCare “fail” and start over again.
