Traffic: The Price of Progress

Written by Thursday, October 20, 2016
By Veronica Mackey It was a packed house at the council meeting on Tuesday. Residents and other stakeholders gave comments during a public hearing about the future of Downtown Inglewood and Fairview Heights, and the impact of traffic on the city. City staff and consultants presented plans and designs illustrating what the “new” Downtown Inglewood will look like. Taking into consideration the 2 train stations currently being constructed, an ordinance was introduced to amend the…
On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to decide whether U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jesus Mesa Jr. can be sued for killing an unarmed Mexican teenager. The shooting occurred in the concrete culvert that separates El Paso, Texas from Juarez, Mexico. The victim, Sergio Hernandez, 15, was playing a game of dare with three other friends, in which the boys would run and touch the fence separating the U.S. from Mexico, and then run back.…

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded the City of Inglewood’s Lease Revenue Bonds Series 2012 from Baa1 to A2. This is Inglewood’s second upgrade of lease revenue bonds.

Are Republicans on the Verge of Civil War?

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
By Veronica Mackey Friday, October 7 may be the day in history that Donald Trump single-handedly split the Republican Party in half. It was on this day that the Trump campaign imploded over a leaked videotape of him making lewd remarks about women. At one point, Trump suggested he could—and probably did—get away with sexual assault. Newly married to his third wife Melania when the video was made in 2005, Trump bragged to Billy Bush…

If It Quacks Like A Duck, It Must Be Donald

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
With less than 4 weeks until the election, it unnerves me how dead-set some black folks are on voting for Donald Trump. There are those who will stick with him regardless of his obvious racism for reasons that are beyond me. If, there is one example that should change a black person’s mind about voting for Trump, it should be the Central Park 5. The term refers to 5 teenagers—4 African Americans and 1 Hispanic—who were pressured into falsely admitting to the brutal rape and assault of Trisha Meili, an affluent 28 year-old Wall Street executive. The boys spent between…
By Veronica Mackey Roland S. Martin, syndicated columnist and Host of “NewsOne Now,” said on Sunday that Fox News Analyst and host of the “Larry Elder Show” might need some medicine “because the brother’s in serious pain this morning.” The men went head-to-head last Saturday during a 3-hour debate in The Tabernacle at Faithful Central Bible Church in Inglewood. The debate and community forum was sponsored by Inglewood Today and Urban Family Communications, and broadcast…

Council Waits for No One

Written by Thursday, October 13, 2016
By Veronica Mackey Tuesday’s council meeting was so brief that several would-be attendees missed it. There was only one working elevator in the building, which made ascension to the 9th floor painfully slow. By the time the stranded ones arrived around 2:15, lights were out in the chamber and those in the meeting were leaving. Advice: arrive early! This is what the council approved: •Amendment to an agreement for legal advice, guidance and representation. The…

Mike Pence (R ) duke it out on the debate stage, representing respective running mates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The men debated for 90 minutes at Virginia’s Longwood University.

Written by Thursday, October 06, 2016
By Veronica Mackey The Inglewood City Council welcomed the first meeting of the new fiscal year with a presentation on the status of Inglewood’s water supply and conservation efforts. An engineering consultant hired by the City described how Inglewood fares within the State of California. California just ended its fifth straight year of a severe drought and no one knows when it will end. The State has mandated that cities reduce water use by 20%…

The Real Estate Market IS Getting Stronger

Written by Thursday, October 06, 2016
By Glenda Brass, MBA Whenever there is talk about an improving housing market, some begin to show concern that we may be headed toward another housing bubble that will be followed by a crash similar to the one we saw last decade. I actually am not convinced that this is the case and here are some data points that I believe show the housing market will continue to recover, and that a new housing crisis…

Yahoo Spies on Users at Request of FBI, NSA

Written by Thursday, October 06, 2016

Reuters broke the news that in 2015, Yahoo created a tool for scanning its webmail at the request of the FBI and NSA. Hundreds of millions of incoming emails were scoured for specific keywords that the agencies consider hot buttons for possible terrorism or other criminal activity. Back in 2012,…

Take a Pause From Political Burnout

Written by Thursday, October 06, 2016
With the election just a month away, political sound bites of candidates bickering back and forth is just about all that mainstream media wants to cover. It’s been a long political season, and many are burnt out by the process. If you can take some time off, now would be a great time for a vacation. Getting away helps us to re-connect to what is really real and important—being in nature, spending time with loved ones, fulfilling a personal dream, and just relaxing. A Glassdoor Q1 2014 Employment Confidence Survey found that “the average U.S. employee only takes half of…

Watching Trump Squirm

Written by Thursday, September 29, 2016
There is nothing like a televised debate to bring to life the true essence of political candidates. Anyone can poke fun at their opponents from a distance, and say things to rile up their base. But when candidates are forced to come face-to-face and answer specific questions for 90 minutes, well, that’s what separates the serious from the kidders. All I can say is, if Donald Trump sticks to his policy of being loose and free on the debate stage, Democrats won’t have anything to worry about in November. He said he didn’t want to over prepare against Clinton. Well,…
