Two Victories Won

Written by Wednesday, June 04, 2014
By Willie Brown Congratulations to Autumn Burke for winning Tuesday’s primary election. It certainly was a breath of fresh air to see a young person so focused and dedicated to her run for the State Assembly (62nd District), and such a nice person too. Autumn ran a highly professional, intelligent campaign, and brought fresh new energy and ideas to the table. Although it is far from over, she is getting a lot of buzz and most feel she will take it all in November. There can only be one winner, of course. But I would be remiss if I did…

Home Town Paper Makes For a Better Home Town

Written by Wednesday, May 28, 2014
By Mark F. Weinberg To be forthright, I am a newspaper junkie. At the age of nine, I began delivering them. By the time I was eleven I was hooked on reading them. At sixteen I wallpapered my entire bedroom with months of Los Angeles Herald Examiner headlines and had my first brush with neighborhood celebrity when the paper published a photo of it. One of my parting regrets from this news-filled planet will surely…

Maya Angelou Dead at 86

Written by Wednesday, May 28, 2014
By Veronica Mackey I don’t recall the exact year that I drove to UC Irvine to see Dr. Maya Angelou. I only knew this was a moment I did not want to miss. I didn’t invite anyone else, not wanting to risk someone making me late. The auditorium was packed, no doubt, with scores of writers like myself, hoping for words of wisdom, some magical advice to make them great and Pulitzer Prize-worthy. She came…

Is the Morningside Park Chronicle for Sale?

Written by Wednesday, May 28, 2014
By Willie Brown As far as I know, the newspaper is not being sold, unless you count the thousands of dollars allegedly funneled through the Simona Farisse campaign to help buy the 62nd Assembly District seat. According to 2urbangirls.com, Randall and Teka-Lark Fleming, editor and publisher of the Morningside Park Chronicle, have all but abandoned their one-time supporter, former District One Inglewood Council member Mike Stevens (also running for the 62nd Assembly seat) to follow the money. Remember, MPC is the same publication that Stevens and former Councilmember Judy Dunlap used to write for. As sitting council members, this was…

7 Ways To Self-Invest In Your 20’s

Written by Thursday, April 24, 2014
By Thomas Bunn For 20-somethings, self-indulgence is synonymous with life up to this point.

As more and more blacks and Latinos enter 4-year universities and colleges, without proper guidance on investment, we could be setting ourselves up for tremendous…
