n less than a month, Inglewood voters will once again go to the polls to decide the next mayor. Mayor James Butts is running against former Inglewood District 1 Councilman Mike Stevens, and Inglewood residents, entertainer Sandie Crisp and retired businessman Gil Mathieu. The mayor’s race is one of the most closely watched races in the city. But it is only a part of the election. In this Midterm Election, voters will cast ballots for state officials as well as decide on important California initiatives. So, what else is on the ballot? Glad you asked. Here is what Inglewood voters will decide, in addition to the next mayor. Use it as a condensed guide to the upcoming election on Nov. 4. Do your research now to make informed decisions and save time. Statewide, voters will decide whether to give 4 more years to incumbents, Gov. Jerry Brown, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Kamala Harris, Insurance

homas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who flew to Texas, and was the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed and confirmed in the U.S., died Wednesday. Officials from Texas Health Presbyterian, the hospital where he was treated, said he fought courageously, but was pronounced dead at 7:51am. Duncan first came to the hospital on September 26th, complaining of symptoms of Ebola. The visit prompted deep concern and some panic as the public watched the case unfold in Dallas.

Experts say Ebola patients are contagious only once they are displaying symptoms, which include fever above 101.5 degrees, severe headaches, muscle pain, diarrhea and vomiting. The disease gained global attention last December when the outbreak occurred in West Africa. The virus (Continued on page 2)

What Raven Really Meant

O

By Maya Mackey

n Sunday night (October 5) Raven-Symone was interviewed by Oprah for a special titled, “Where Are They Now?” which debuted on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). A lot of black people are mad about a comment Raven made regarding her identity. Oprah addresses the tweet Raven wrote over a year ago in support of the gay marriage act passing through the U.S. Supreme Court. The tweet Raven-Symone reads, “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.” with a woman. Raven exclaimed, however, that she doesn’t like the label of “gay” or labels in general. Here’s where it gets messy. In the list of labels she dislikes, she includes African-American. “I’m an American. I’m not African-American, I’m American.” Black Twitter went rampant with rebuttal tweets claiming Raven is adding to the list of black celebrities claiming they are the “new black.” This new “philosophy” started Maya Mackey with a comment by Pharell WilOprah asks if that was Raven’s liams earlier this year. Also in an way of “coming out.” Raven ex- interview with Oprah, Pharell says: presses that while her tweet was the “new black” doesn’t blame otha general cry of excitement for the er races for our issues. The “new LGBT community, she is currently black” dreams and realizes that it’s in a happy and healthy relationship not pigmentation; it’s a mentality.

Ebola Victim Dies (Continued from page 1) has killed more than 3,400 people worldwide. Eight people in Los Angeles County, suspected of being infected by the virus, have been tested, but were not found to carry the disease. Centinela Hospital in Inglewood tested another Liberian man with Ebola-like symptoms Tuesday. He was tested negative. However the hospital did not take new patients for two hours overnight, It was fully functioning Wednesday. “Ambulance personnel alerted the hospital prior to arrival so upon entry to the hospital campus, all CDC precautions were fully implemented,” Centinela spokesman Steve Brand said. He added that “The patient will remain fully isolated in the hospital’s ER for continued evaluation and all appropriate testing will be conducted in consultation with the CDC.” Patients suspected of Ebola are quarantined until all tests are completed. Elsewhere, a freelance cameraman remains hospitalized in Nebraska with the virus. His is the second confirmed Ebola case in the U.S. According to CBS News, the man is taking an experimental drug called brincidofovir, which is an oral medication developed to fight

And it’s either going to work for you or against you. And you’ve got to pick the side you’re going to be on. People of color are upset (and I would argue rightfully so) that Pharell seems to think anyone can get ahead and your race has nothing to do with it. However, I don’t think that is what Raven is getting at. She goes on to explain that what she means is she doesn’t have knowledge about her specific African roots. She’s from Louisiana and her values, beliefs, and identity primarily come from America. I can’t get behind a “post-racial-I-don’t-seecolor” mentality but I can understand what Raven was trying to say. I grew up in America. For better or for worse, America has shaped my identity. I believe in individualism, independence, and self-sufficiency. These traits are definite American and individualistic culture ideologies. I am Black American, not African-American. I have no knowledge about African culture, ideologies or languages. If I were to go to Kenya or Sierra Leone tomorrow, I would not fit in. We might have similar skin tones but that’s about where the similarities stop. That is the point I believe Raven was trying to make.

Federal officials said that 5 U.S. airports will begin screening passengers traveling from the West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea—countries hardest hit by the epidemic—as early as this weekend. The screenings will include taking the passengers’ temperatures with a gun-like, noncontact thermometer and requiring them to fill out a questionnaire. Airports include JFK International (New York); Washington Dulles International (Washington, DC); O’Hare International (Chicago); Hartsfield-Jackson International (Atlanta); and and Newark Liberty International (New Jersey).

Meanwhile, family members of Thomas Eric Duncan have raised questions over his care, and have demanded a full investigation. A major concern is why Duncan was initially sent home after showing signs of Ebola and telling the hospital he had come from Liberia. Another issue is why it took the hospital 10 days to get the experimental drug to him when the effects of Ebola are so devastating and fast moving Duncan’s body will be cremated, Texas health officials said.

Senior Officials: Taking the High Road

hoever thought that it would never happen? In spite of their disparities on Capitol Hill for the past six years, high-ranking lawmakers “took the high road;” put aside politics momentarily and vehemently spoke out in President Obama’s favor two days after the Obamas’ White House mansion had been intruded by an armed attacker, according to CNN. Matter-of-factly according to news media, “two senior lawmakers from both parties had urged the Secret Services Director at that time to resign (nypost.com;usatoday).” Also according to CNN, a select committee plans to conduct an investigation into the White House security breach (www.cnn). That in and of itself may help to ensure the American public that the President will have much tighter security from now on, even though presidents in general have always been vulnerable to attacks. To give a quick analogy according to American history, former

treet construction and the future of the old Daniel Freeman Hospital site were the main topics discussed at Tuesday’s council meeting. Resident Leroy Fisher wanted to know how the City “got around the covenant” that allowed the Daniel Freeman property to be used to build condominiums instead. “Covenants apply to the parties involved. The City was not a part of the covenant. The City had no say in the sale and transfer of that property,” Mayor James Butts said. “The City couldn’t tell them (owners of the site) what to do,” resident Ethel Austin said. The council approved an agreement to allow the Cities of Torrance and Lomita as member cities of the South Bay Workforce Investment Area. They also approved advance payment to cover the City’s cost

City Manager Artie Fields announced that the City’s Acting Community Development Director, Linda Tatum, was honored last month by the American Planning Assn., California Chapter, for her distinguished service. “There is a talented group of employees working for the City. Linda Tatum is one of those employees. We’re very grateful to have someone of Linda’s caliber,” Fields said. A professional planner for more than 20 years, Tatum has served on the board of directors of the APC for 12 years, and is a member of the California Planning Round Table. “She proves how great our staff really is.

The Price of a New City

H

old on Inglewood, things are about to get a little crazy. With everything starting up, seemingly at the same time, nerves may become rattled. But it will all be fine in the end. With the re-opened Fabulous Forum past the six-month mark, earning revenue for the City, and fast becoming a mecca for worldclass entertainment (again!), there are new developments to keep our eyes on. Century Blvd., long in need of repaving, is on its way to being fixed, although it may not look that way at first. Streets are being torn up at Century Blvd. and Prairie Ave., eastward to install a new water and sewer system, and new gas lines to make way for the massive Hollywood Park project. This is the future site of new upscale housing, a new hotel, retail centers and other amenities, so traffic disruption is essential. As soon as the commotion dies down from installing underground water, sewer and gas lines (hopefully by Thanksgiving) on Century, Market Street development will take center stage. A contractor will be selected to renovate the area early next year. The Market Street project, projected to become a mixed-use project of shops with upstairs residential space, will make way for yet another project—the light rail train which will come through Inglewood to and from LAX. Get ready for more traffic with the building of the train tracks and the two stations slated to be built in Inglewood. That project is expected to be complete in 2019. Bottom line—there are going to be traffic disruptions and noise while this City becomes transformed. There is just no way of

And with it, the inevitable reality of traffic interruptions. “The Gas Company is putting in a new gas transmission line (on Century Blvd.) between Yukon and Prairie,” Councilman Ralph Franklin said. “Gas lines are be-

New construction, new projects, and new infrastructure means millions of dollars in tax revenues, more jobs, more business opportunities, and more city services. This adds up to an overall better quality of life for everyone. Life is changing for people who live and work in Inglewood. There will be more noise and more traffic detours. But as the dust begins to settle, we will be able to see how much better things are. The streets will be smoother, the train will provide another transportation option for commuters, there will be more things to do and places to visit, and more people spending their money here. It’s not a bad scenario when you compare the temporary inconvenience to the big payoff. As nerve wrecking as it may be from time to time, things will be much better in the end. So just plan on being flexible, change your route to work, buy some ear plugs, do what you have to do. There is an end date to this city wide renovation, and it will mark the beginning of the new Inglewood.

You’re going to have a lot of disruption, so if you can avoid that intersection, you may want to do so.” Franklin added that the gas line project will delay street paving, but “we have to take care of the things in the ground first.” Dotson said folks may want to attend his Oct. 11 town hall meeting for more than the information: “If you haven’t got your flu shot, it’s time to go and get it.

Judge Rules Ferguson Police Violated Civil Rights

t is unconstitutional for police to require protestors to keep moving rather than stand still, said a federal judge on Monday. U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry in St. Louis ordered law enforcement agencies to stop using the tactic employed against demonstrators protesting the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. Seeking to control angry crowds, police there ordered people to walk and not stand still. The American Civil Liberties Union sued to halt the practice. Perry wrote in her order that the requirement violates the constitutional rights of protesters. She said she granted a preliminary injunction “because it is likely that these agencies will again apply this unconstitutional policy.’’

Police, however, can still enforce Missouri’s failure-to-disperse law and other laws to control crowds and protect people and property. “This injunction prevents only the enforcement of an ad hoc rule developed for the Ferguson protests that directed police officers, if they felt like it, to order peaceful, law-abiding protesters to keep moving rather than standing still,’’ she wrote. The ACLU and Amnesty International USA hailed the ruling as a victory. “Vague rules that are applied in a haphazard fashion tend to increase community tension,” said Tony Rothert, legal director of the ACLU of Missouri. “Judge Perry’s injunction is a huge win for peaceful protesters and those who believe in the rule of law.’’

Red’s Flavor Table

mongst a packed house and the likes of KJLH Radio and NBA Hall of Fame Legend Reggie Miller, I found myself in the heart of Louisiana this past Saturday as the community partook in the grand opening of The Flavor Table, a New Orleans style breakfast restaurant located at 2812 W. Florence Avenue in the City of Los Angeles. Hot plates swooshed by, folks carried smiles and good conversation, and music charged the air with good vibes, as guests, family, and friends indulged in the southern cuisine that’s become quite a fan favorite in the last few decades. The newly opened establishment is actually the return of a Los Angeles gem that has been around since the early 1980s, previously located on Western Avenue and 39th Street.

Healthy Eating & Weight Loss

M

By Anne Cheek La Rose

y sister is getting married later this month and I wanted to drop a few pounds and tone up a bit. I watch my fat intake, use no extra salt on foods, and eat lots of veggies, among other things. Don’t know how quickly these work, but they are all healthy and that’s the important thing for the long run. BUTTER is a no-no. Years ago I replaced butter with flavored olive oil. I use olive oil for everything except baking—there’s no substitute for butter when baking. CINNAMON is good for your heart. If you’re addicted to coffee, a sprinkle on your latte is a good thing. Sorry, but eating a tempting and delicious cinnamon bun is not good for weight loss. APPLE SAUCE, the ‘no sugar’ added variety, is what I eat almost daily.

Milk with 1% milkfat has a chalky taste to me. The bonus of milk, yogurt, cheese, and other milk products is that they up your calcium intake. If you have osteoporosis or are on the verge of it, milk products definitely help. ICE CREAM is oh-so- good, but the fat content is incredibly high. I have replaced ice cream with frozen yogurt, specifically Yogurtland. I’m not promoting this brand, but it is the best I’ve tasted and I’m mad for it. NUTS, almonds and walnuts have good fat and are the least caloric. Snack on them or add to vegetables or casseroles. EDAMAME is a soy bean and a great source of natural estrogen. I use them as a dinner veggie but many people eat them as a snack sprinkled with sea salt. I buy them shelled as I don’t see the point of

Salt is found in most foods naturally, yet we add it while cooking, then add more when the food reaches the table. In place of salt, try Morton’s Salt Substitute, Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute (my choice), or Mrs. Dash. I won’t tell you they taste exactly like salt, but they add flavor to food and

Smile, Be Happy By Hamza Yammout, UMMA Community Clinic

A

research study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted between 2006 and 2008 shows that 1 in every 10 adults in the United States are depressed. The largest two groups of those surveyed who reported being depressed are African American and Hispanic. Ironically, another large pool of participants who were identified as depressed also did not have health insurance (recall that the Affordable Care Act was non-existent at the time). Today, everyone who is a U.S. citizen must have some form of health insurance, regardless of the level of coverage. However, having insurance does not constitute optimal coverage. Whether clinically depressed or having a bad day, science has shown, time and again, that smiling helps. During a Ted Talk by Ron Gutman, he mentioned several profound studies that prove the benefits of a simple smile. One such study took into consideration the size of the smile each baseball player had on their baseball card. Those who were smiling from ear to ear lived, on average, a total of 9

years longer! Sure, smiling might improve your overall quality of life and even extend it, however, what about those who feel either too sad or angry to smile? What do they do to take advantage of this natural tool?

drawn to chocolate, especially during times of sadness or loss. However, there’s another way to stimulate our brains and induce the production of serotonin just like the tryptophan in chocolate does—and it’s free! In his presentation, Gutman cites a study by British researchers that sends the crowd into an uproar of laughter. One single smile can produce the exact same level of brain stimulation as eating 2,000 bars of chocolate! He continues, adding that the same study by these British researchers also found that smiling is as stimulating as receiving up to $25,600 in cash!

that’s why we use salt. If you must have salt, use sea salt. I cut my beef intake to a minimum. I’ll go for a burger when I feel the need for beef. I eat chicken and fish. Salmon and Tilapia are the two fish highest in Omega-3 (the good fat), but Salmon is horribly expensive so I buy Tilapia. I bake or grill, but never fry. I’ll eat a few French fries with a burger. Once a week I have a meatless meal. I make frittatas. My recipe for two is six eggs, add a bit of water to fluff the eggs, salt substitute to taste and whisk. Add lots of vegetables (I try for at least six different ones). Mix together, then into a skillet on top of the stove and cover. When the eggs begin to cook, place the skillet and cover into a 350 degree oven until the frittata is cooked through. I still haven’t lost any weight and I’m not as firm as I’d like. Maybe I’ll fall back on a few Pilates and Yoga exercises I learned in college —at least my posture will be good.

We’re in our new fiscal year and it’s (tree trimming) now going to run into Districts 1 and 4. Districts 2 and 3 will be doing street repairs,” he said.

Board of Supervisors Approved $20M Set-Aside for Diversion in the Supplemental Budget

he Board of Supervisors Tuesday voted to set aside $20 million to fund mental health services, substance abuse treatment, job counseling, as well as supportive housing for mentally ill offenders as an alternative to incarceration. “We know that jail is not the best place to treat the mentally ill and substance abusers,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, who sponsored the motion setting aside the funds. “Jail only makes the mentally ill sicker, and this County has not been able to figure out how to keep them stabilized and healthy in an environment that only makes them worse.” The mentally ill are jailed at higher rates than others, and those numbers are outpacing the County’s ability to properly treat them. Diversion, or rerouting mentally ill offenders to treatment instead of incarceration, is intended to stabilize them and reduce the likelihood of recidivism. Many of the mentally ill people that wind up in County jails have co-occurring disorders and are homeless. “Unnecessarily jailing people with mental illness is not only expensive, because they can be treated for a fraction of the cost using community-based programs, but it is also harsh and insensitive, and dare I say, inhumane,” the Supervisor said. “Having an untreated mental

F

illness should not be a crime.” The County of Los Angeles has been under a Memorandum of Agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice since 2002 and could face a consent decree because the jails were not designed to accommodate or deliver treatment to inmates with severe mental illnesses. Today, the Board of Supervisors joined with District Attorney Jackie Lacey, County mental and public health departments and the Sheriff’s Department as a financial partner committed to diversion. In 2015, the board will vote on whether to build a $2 billion jail. By setting aside $20 million in a separate fund pending receipt of the District Attorney’s report, the Board has expressed a commitment to righting this wrong. In the Second Supervisorial District efforts to expand diversion are already underway. The MLK Mental Health Urgent Care Center opened its doors earlier this month on the Martin Luther King Medical Campus. The center is a one-stop shop for families, individuals and law enforcement to bring a person suffering acute distress or an episode related to mental illness. Patients will receive a variety of services including psychiatric evaluation and assessment, crisis intervention, substance abuse counseling and medication support (Continued on page 11)

SoCal Renters Will Pay 8 Percent More Over Next 2 Years

lat incomes, rising costs, and a low supply of housing have created a nightmare for renters. Researchers at the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate say the situation is going to get worse. According to the study recently released, renters in L.A. and Orange Counties can expect rent increases of 8.2 percent and 8.6 percent respectively in the next two years. Translated, this means paying an average of $1,860 or $1,810 per month. Rentals in the Inland Empire are expected to jump to an average of 9.9 percent or $1,250 monthly. In Inglewood, the average rent for a two-bedroom apartment is around $1,250. According to WestsideRental. com, those who stay in the beach cities, will pay about 15 percent more, while those who live a little farther inland will see about a 10 percent increase.

The anticipated increase is due in part to the demand for new housing outpacing new construction. At the same time, the economic downturn created a quagmire of challenges which have negatively impacted the ability of many families to keep up with rising cost. According to the California Housing Partnership Corporation and Harvard University, from 2000-2012, the inflation-adjusted median rent shot up by nearly 25 percent in L.A. County. During the same time, inflation-adjusted income declined by 9 percent. About 20 percent of California households spent more than half of their income on rent in 2011, which means many are going without living essentials. California has the second-lowest home ownership rate in the country, just behind New York.

Restaurants Charge 3% Surcharge to Pay for Obamacare

L

ocal diners should brace themselves for a new 3 percent surcharge being tacked onto their restaurant bills. The fee is being added—mainly at high-end restaurants—to cover healthcare costs for their employees. You can ask to have the surcharge subtracted from your bill. The tactic, which began showing up first in Northern California was implemented in Los Angeles last year, and more L.A. area eateries are jumping on the band wagon. Critics say it’s a ploy to make a political statement about the Affordable Care Act, while restaurant owners insist it is a way to take care of their employees. Yelp reviewers called the fee cheap and tacky. They say the fee should be included in the menu price: “It’s basically management saying ‘Obamacare made me do it,’” one reviewer wrote. “If you want to offset costs try turning up the thermostat. There’s your 3%! Now please pay your workers’ health insurance, and hush.” Restaurant workers like the idea, especially those who are

older and work in the kitchen. California law prohibits wait staff to share their tips with cooks. A good waiter at a high-end restaurant could earn up to $80,000 a year or more, compared to a cook or dishwasher. When you consider what a waiter can earn in tips, the pay inequality can be stark. Some restaurants are toying with the idea of doing away with tips altogether and charging a service fee instead. This fee, they say, could be used to provide medical insurance to all workers. A question for many diners is why restaurants don’t simply pick up the tab. On any given weekend in L.A., depending on the restaurant, guests could wait 45 minutes for a good table. But those in the industry say the belief that restaurants are high profit centers is just a myth. “Many months, no matter how busy the restaurants may be, they can actually be running at a loss,” one restaurant owner said. The employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act will go into effect in 2016 for businesses with 50 or more employees.
