The Lakers organization and Jerry Buss family awarded Inglewood an $80,000 grant to resurface basketball courts at both Darby and Rogers Parks.

When Your Holiday Season Isn’t That Bright…

Written by Thursday, December 08, 2016
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas now that the City’s Christmas tree has been lit at the Forum. Local shopping centers are all decorated with lights and Christmas music can be heard everywhere you go. Signs of the holiday are not hard to find, but at this special time of year, there are those among us who are not feeling the Christmas spirit. For many, 2016 has been an especially hard year, and the pressure to be “merry” only serves to further aggravate their depression. While I always seek to inspire people, I won’t make light of anyone’s…

One More Reason I Am Thankful

Written by Thursday, December 01, 2016
Last week, I recalled my many blessings in my weekly message. Now, I’d like to add one more. I’m thankful to live in California—a progressive blue state which, though not perfect, remains one of the freest places in America. Besides the gorgeous weather in Southern California, it is a place where independence and innovation reign. I am particularly proud that I live in a state where diversity is the norm. It makes us more tolerant and loving and open-minded toward our neighbors. This frame of mind will become more necessary to endure a Trump administration. According to the L.A. Times,…
Eight years ago, as America was teetering on the edge of financial collapse, then President-Elect Barack Obama predicted that as the economy recovered, some jobs—even entire industries—would disappear. Fast forward to 2016, and we find job growth steady and the labor force growing at close to its fastest pace since 2000. Despite changes in the job market, more people are going back to work. That’s why economists are finding it disheartening that an important part…

What’s Next for Cuba after Fidel Castro?

Written by Thursday, December 01, 2016
Now that Fidel Castro has died, some Cubans wonder if brother Raul Castro—who took over when the leader became ill—will modify the communist regime in favor of a more democratic society. Don’t count on it. Castro, who died on Nov. 25 at age 90, came into power by deposing Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, and ruled the Republic of Cuba for 47 years as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as President from 1976…
