Within just one year’s span of time, Inglewood has out-booked Staples Center and the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine. Yes, the Forum, buoyed by a $100 million investment by Madison Square Garden and world class entertainment, is truly “fabulous” again. Just one week later, Inglewood has been named the …

Missing Stuart Scott

Written by Thursday, January 08, 2015
Stuart Scott, the humorous, high-energy, sports announcer on ESPNs SportsCenter, whom Kobe Bryant said “changed the game,” is being remembered as much for his cameo film roles and catchphrases as the sports he covered. Scott, 49, who died of cancer on Sunday and joined ESPN in 1993, himself became as much of a celebrity as many NBA and NFL players. In fact, Scott’s popularity with sports fans led to several cameo appearances, including: “He Got…

Let’s Build on Our Momentum in 2015

Written by Thursday, January 01, 2015
Now that the new year is here, it’s time to renew our faith about what is possible. Yesterday’s troubles can weigh us down until we feel like things won’t ever get better. But we must remember that there is a silver lining in every cloud. Even the challenges of 2014 can bring good things if looked at from the right view point. Right now racial tension and conflict between black people and police is at its height. Hardly a day goes by when we do not hear about yet another shooting by police. And now, with the recent deaths of…

Farewell 2014

Written by Thursday, January 01, 2015
2014 is in the can, and big congratulations to the 8% of people, who according to studies, have achieved the goals they set for themselves at the beginning of the year. The other 92% of folks may have gotten close but on the bright side, have 2015 to make amends and begin again. If the City of Inglewood were a person, I’d most definitely say it’s part of the accomplished 8%. This year, I’ve witnessed…

Inglewood ‘City of Entertainment’

Written by Thursday, January 01, 2015
When Madison Square Garden purchased the Forum in 2012 for $23.5 million from Faithful Central Bible Church, there were more than enough opinions about why the deal would not work. Negative publicity about Inglewood, a depressed economy, loss of two franchise sports teams, and pessimistic residents suggested that Inglewood and its iconic entertainment venue had seen better days. How could the Forum possibly compete with Staples Center in the absence of a sports team? But…

Thoughts for 2015

Written by Thursday, January 01, 2015
As the old year draws to a close and the New Year dawns, our thoughts naturally turn to what was and what will be. I’m not one for New Year resolutions. I’ve tried it over the years and, like most folks, can’t keep the resolutions going. So this year, I’m resolving to do things I know I will definitely be able to handle. Experience Inglewood Food Food is a good place to start. Here are…

Rules of Regifting

Written by Thursday, January 01, 2015
Recycling unwanted gifts is a growing practice, especially in today’s economy. And there’s nothing wrong with it as long as you follow some basic regifting rules. Disregard them and you could end up hurting someone’s feelings and appearing thoughtless. If you are the recipient of a nice gift that—for whatever reason—does not work for you, consider passing it on to someone else. But before you do that, make sure you understand the etiquette of this…

Be Thankful for Christmas and the New Year

Written by Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Against the backdrop of political and social unrest and economic injustice, one could conclude that world events (mostly negative) would overshadow Christmas. But if you will fully embrace the Christmas-New Year’s holidays, you will gain a positive perspective. While the violence we have seen this year both within the U.S. and overseas makes us feel enraged and a little uncertain, it also reminds us of how much there is to be thankful for. Being with friends and family, and enjoying the light of Christmas will eclipse what we have witnessed in Ferguson New York, and overseas in Syria—even if temporarily.…

Who Were The Wise Men

Written by Wednesday, December 24, 2014
The meaning of Christmas is often defined by a myriad of symbols from gifts and Christmas trees to angels and lights. While many criticize the commercialization of the Christian holiday, even worse is the distortion of facts surrounding the birth of Jesus. The facts of his birth, like the manmade traditions associated with Christmas, has deviated from the truth. Yet, if we look to the Scriptures, we find that the historical account of his first…
