By MP Chronicle staff Inglewood mayor James T. Butts rushed to two Metro meetings in late June. He went on the record to discuss a quarter-mile-long 30-foot wall Metro will be building at the La Brea/Florence station on the Crenshaw Line. The mayor apparent-
ly learned of the wall after a Chronicle staffer’s call earlier in the week requesting comment. Butts did not return the call. But he was at the June 20 Metro Construction Committee Meeting and again at the Metro Board Meeting on June 27. At the June 20 meeting, the mayor commented ex-
tensively on Item 53 of the Metro committee’s agenda. “Please keep in mind that we intend to have a project at Florence and Market site. We call it D-3. It used to be a Cadillac dealership. We plan to have a something like hotel there,” he said.

Four New Taxes for District 1
Reduced service to be followed by more taxes District 1 homeowners are already on the hook for nearby parks that are frequently used by residents of Districts 2, 3 and 4 as well as L.A. residents and sports teams, and there will be more blood drained from District 1 if Dotson fails to stand up for homeowners regarding four sets of new property taxes called “assessments.” In 1974, the Morningside Park Improvment Project in its entirety was funded by Morningside Park property owners. Three of the four assessments will exclusively target District 1 homeowners: the Morningside Park Maintenance District and the Darby-Dixon Maintenance District.

Everything is Science International Science Discovery Center By Teka-Lark Fleming African American Male Achievers Networks (AMAN) is a science, technology, engineering and mathematics program for girls and boys from kindergarten through the 12th grade. It was named to honor the men who helped Dr. Bettye Walker a former principal and school teacher get the program off the ground. When Dr. Walker was a principal she received a grant from UCLA to use science as a tool for learning. She recruited over 100 African-American men from the worlds of business, science and politics to give motivational talks at her school
to inspire her teachers and her students to love science and math. It was so successful she realized she had to make this available all year to the entire community. “I grew up in DC on the same block as my science teacher. On the weekends we had all kinds of science projects going on. My father worked at the Pentagon. I spent every afternoon at the Pentagon, so we always knew the importance of science,” said Dr. Walker. With all the budget cuts sadly in some schools creativity is seen as an extra. Science is part of creativity. “Science is at the crux of it all. It is not some-

thing separate. Everything we do is science,” she added. If you want your child to have hands-on experience with science have them visit the A-MAN center it’s right next door

Morningside Park Chronicle A word from the publisher
I have two passions: the arts and the environment. To me they are two things that always have gone together. Many of my art projects have had to do with the environment. I had a project in San Pedro where I invited the public to give me their car to destroy on stage. The car was symbolic of not just driving, but of out of control consumerism. And to me that’s a big part of the issue in Inglewood. The bureaucrats who run the city and our urban planners don’t appreciate what and who is here. They want to get bigger. They think more stuff and “better” people equals an improved quality of life. They want us to look like Westwood in 1989. They want us to look like Santa Monica in 1999. Why can’t we just look like 2013 Inglewood with some minor tweaks...you know, library hours and a cultural affairs department. Most cities are trying to go smaller, because the new world is smaller, local and sustainable. The people at One Manchester for the last 30 years have been chasing this dream of “white” “suburbia” and hoping to somehow bring that to a black and brown largely bohemian and working class city, because for some reason the people of City Hall who don’t live here think that we want 1000 chain stores, because that’s what they think we think Santa Monica looks like. City Hall, we’ve left the city limits of Inglewood. We’ve probably been to more places than One Manchester who seem to only see the world as Santa Monica circa 1990 and not Santa Monica. The amount of times I hear Santa Monica referenced during City Hall and commission meetings makes me forget sometimes that Inglewood is a suburb of the great City of Los Angeles and not the inland empire of Santa Monica County. Do you know why big retail development is looking at Inglewood now—after 30 years of begging? Because middle and upper middle-class L.A. doesn’t want this kind of development anymore. Red Lobster is unhealthful, so is Chile’s and all the other fast food crap that lines Century, Crenshaw and Manchester Boulevards. There is no need to have a 24-Hour Fitness because Santa Monica, Los Feliz and Long Beach are building bike lanes. The reason big development is coming here to put up their trash is that no one else wants it in their city. People who have read about global warming and have a modern eye on urban development don’t view a mall or giant freeway signs as modern or as progress. Our “development” is going to continue to put us behind all of the cities One Manchester continues to chase.

[ ANNE on ARCHITECTURE ]
Early Churches of Inglewood By Anne Cheek La Rose Of the 20-plus religious denominations in Inglewood, four stand out for their history in Inglewood. Since all of California was originally part of Mexico, it is not surprising that the first settlers here were Catholic. The Antonio Ignacio Avila family arrived in 1826, and built a ranch near the Centinela Springs. However, the Catholic Church did not have a sizeable presence until 1911. The land for the present church was purchased from Grace Freeman Howland (daughter of Daniel Freeman) after her donation of the property was turned down. The structure is in the contemporary Gothic style and was completed in 1960. Due to changing demographics, St John’s began

offering mass in Spanish in 1975. Dating to 1888, the oldest congregation is the First Presbyterian Church. Originally located at Queen and Market Streets on land donated by Archie Freeman (the brother of Grace Freeman Howland), it was moved to La Brea and Nutwood to allegedly escape the noise of Market Street. First Presbyterian’s current home at the corner of
Hillcrest Boulevard and Queen Street was built in 1946 in New England Colonial style. A lovely tree stands to the left of the entrance. It was planted by pioneer John Aerick in what was then his front yard. Built in the Spanish Colonial style in 1943, the First Methodist Church occupies the corner of Spruce and Kelso Streets.

If the Baptist pastor of a church where he has handled a cover-up of pedophile pastors is the place where the mayor of a city regularly holds town halls and has given $18 million as well as a massive
land grant near a recently built Southland freeway, swears in two sworn Catholic council members in front of a convicted felon while a former city administrator who happens to be of the Jewish faith looks on, does that mean our beautiful city

The next school year will bring many changes for students of the Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD). Those living near the Warren Lane Elementary site are soon going to see older students in the hallways. Owing to the declining enrollment of K-8 students in IUSD, “City Honor” high school students will soon be walking the halls of the school named for one of Inglewood’s most forwardthinking pioneers. Born in Philadelphia on November 19, 1872, Lane came to Fresno, California where he studied fig cultivation in 1897 under the direction of the George Roeding who was considered the Central California “father of the fig industry.” While in Fresno he met Dora Gibbs; they were married in 1907. The young couple came to Inglewood on their honeymoon and continued to live

Because of his horticulture and nurseryman skills acquired in Fresno, Harry Lee Martin, Archie Freeman (son of Daniel) and Louise Garrett hired him to oversee the sale of the large nursery stock and greenhouse plantings located at Redondo and La Brea Ave. (Jessie Fremont, wife of John Fremont, had previously operated a floral stem nursery at this site furnishing fresh blooms.)

The Lavender Blue Restaurant & Lounge Inglewood’s best-kept new secret At just after 5:00 p.m. on a Monday, the bar area is well lit. A few gentlemen are enjoying drinks, conversation and CNN on a large screen TV. In the dining area, an attractive woman with a warm smile is working away on a laptop computer. That woman is Marsha Tekeste, owner of the Lavender Blue Restaurant & Lounge. In her own words, “Lavender Blue has a warm and inviting dining room, a bar/lounge area featuring blues, jazz and your favorite sporting events.” The restaurant is oneof-a-kind in the Morningside Park community. Marsha poured 28 years of restaurant and lounge experience into creating a special place for mature lovers of great blues and jazz entertainment to enjoy a delicious meal, have cocktails and host. I ordered a salmon burger and sweet potato fries. The food is SU-B-L-I-M-E! The burger was cooked and seasoned to perfection and the fries were crispy outside and hot and flavorful

[ COOKING with SWEET RICE TEA ]
Summer Celebration Salsa
We are in the middle of summer and it’s also the season for tomatoes. Over the holiday I toured a farm in Fresno where tomatoes were abundant and being harvested. The Farmer offered me 15 pounds for only $2. I was happy with the bargain but needed to figure out what to do with all those pretty heirloom and beefsteak tomatoes. I decided to create what I call, Celebration Salsa because I was celebrating the holiday with my family. The temperature outside was 105 degrees so I served it cold with chips. You can use this recipe as a condiment for salads, tacos, enchiladas and even greens and beans. It enhances the flavor of just about anything and it’s nutritious. Hey, did I mention that it’s also pretty? Please give it a try and let us know what you think by sending an e-mail
to SweetRiceTea@yahoo. com.
Celebration Salsa: 6 medium tomatoes 1 medium white onion finely diced 1 bunch of fresh cilantro stems removed 4 sprigs of curly parsley stems removed 2 limes (you may need three depending on taste) 1 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes 1/2 to 1 tsp of sea salt 1 jalapeno pepper diced Directions: Wash & cut up tomatoes in small chunks. Place in large bowl, add diced onions then set aside. Finely chop the parsley, cilantro and jalapeno pepper and place in small bowl. Use seeds only if you want a hotter flavor. Squeeze the limes and pour over the tomato and onion mixture. Add sea salt, and the herb mixture
and stir with a wooden spoon until well blended. I prefer to use a wooden spoon but if you only have a metal spoon that’s fine too as long as the mixture is well blended. Sprinkle in the crushed red pepper flakes and mix well. Chill and serve with tacos, crackers, beans or greens. Brings a refreshing flavor to just about anything. Enjoy the summer celebrations!

The Liberation School of L.A. is housed in Skira Martinez’s CIELO galleries/studios. When I read about it being on Maple Street, I assumed it was in downtown Los Angeles. The School borrows from the unschool movement and takes learning out of the ivory towers and places it in accessible places so that all socialeconomic classes, races and generations can teach and learn. But I thought, “How liberated can an unschool be in the center of gentrification and oppression?” I looked on the map and learned that it wasn’t the downtown Maple but the South Central Maple—the part of L.A. that is South L.A. It’s the place that was my grandmother’s home before they took it for the 105 freeway that zips and zags and has the fewest exits possible. It’s the place christened “South Central” immediately after the Watts Riots by a white East Coast reporter who was searching for a label for this section of the burning City of Angels.

“It’s off the beaten path,” laughed Skira Martinez. I love historic South Central. I love historic black L.A. that is now Latino, but prior to historic “black” L.A. being “black” it was Latino and Asian and black. Prior to the 1950s, everyone but white people went to school together and lived next to each other in Los Angeles. Even though Martinez, a Canadian transplant, isn’t from South LA, she is a part of the city. In spirit, she is a local. Martinez is figuratively and literally a child of the Black Panther and the Brown Beret movements. “I had a dream of opening up this art gallery a community cultural center that encompassed all forms of art, but also was
very political,” she said. I sat in on a Feminist Radicalism class where a multicultural, gender and age diverse group of people sat in a circle and discussed feminism within the Black Panther, East Wind and Casa organizations. Martinez facilitated along with Jazmine Delgado and Emma Heaney. The School is going on all summer. There are free workshops on a variety of topics as well as a GED prep class. It’s friendly to older people who have been in various political movements and want to share their knowledge and to younger people who want to learn first hand from people who were there.

An I on Religion By Brad Elliot Stone
cares). Indeed, there is room in one’s prayer life for petitionary prayer, especially since it is important to pray for other people, but simply praying for things is not enough and often leaves one disappointed when God seems not to “answer” those prayers. Prayers of “thanksgiving” are prayers where one thanks God for something that has happened or simply for being and existence. These are better than petitionary prayers insofar as they come from gratitude instead of expectation; they are always “answered” prayers. People who feel frustrated in their prayer life should focus particularly on this level of prayer. As Meister Eckhart once wrote, “if the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” One is already very blessed simply
PRAYER You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly. -James 4: 2b-3a Prayer is an essential element of religious life, be it meditation or straight up asking God’s opinion about things. Yet many have never thought about what they pray about and how to pray. Let us explore three kinds of prayer, each of which is better than the previous. Most people pray “petitionary” prayers. These are prayers where one asks God to do something. We are very good at this kind of praying. We ask God to intervene in the affairs of the world, to help us overcome an ordeal, or even to influence the outcome of a sporting event (as if God has time for that, let alone
by existing, so make sure that there is joyful thanksgiving in prayers. Prayers of “oblation” are the best kinds of prayers. These are prayers where one gives oneself over to God and to the divine plan for the universe. This simple offering of oneself aligns us with what we ought to ask for. This is often why prayers go “unanswered;” one wants God to give him or her something without offering oneself to God. Thus, they “ask wrongly.” Many ask God to show them the plan for their life, yet they are secretly asking God to fulfill the person’s own plan. Alas, it does not work that way. There are, of course, other types of prayer (e.g. prayers for forgiveness), but these three, when consciously balanced, will improve the prayers we pray. May we all pray more fully as a result.

Church of the Holy Faith (Episcopal) was the church of our founder, Daniel Freeman. He and his daughter, Grace, gave the land and the structure in memory of Mrs. Daniel Freeman. Daniel himself carved the tabernacle door on the altar and the front

Hoof Beats LIMITED
by Birtram Birtran The last day of the spring summer meet for Betfair Hollywood Park is July 14; after that, the horse races for southern California change to Del Mar race track—which is just north of San Diego. For myself, I will be relying on the off-track facilities in the closer area. Although the closer tracks don’t have racing at their facilities, they do offer betting for the Southern California race tracks that are running live programs. Del Mar race track also has a synthetic surface but a different kind of synthetic and horses have to get use to that type of surface all over again. Although there are a few horses that will run on any type of track at any time or in any type of weather, they are few and far between. If you are a reader of the Daily Racing Form, you will find them by looking at their record on the different type of tracks they
have run on in the previous months and how they have finished the race. As new tracks start their seasons, many of your favorite jockeys will move all over the country or go back to their home track where they live with their families and resume a more normal family life, where they are home every night like the rest of the folk. We sometimes forget how lonely this game can be for those that make their living riding horses—and how dangerous this game is. I always wish them good luck when they ride, even if I am mad at them for making a mistake when riding the horse that I bet on. (Just a note: the Kentucky Derby’s winning jockey, Joel Rosario, is the leading jockey in money and mounts in the nation at this time. The leading lady jockey is Rosie Napravnick who was fifth in the Derby.) I am curious if the
Rhonda’s Wellness Corner
Smart Detox Guidelines Summer is the season for detox and cleansing. Here are a few common sense tips to help you choose a program that suits your lifestyle.
Fourth of July’s loud fireworks affects the horses the same way it affects our family pooch. Horses are pretty skittish animals in their own right. I once heard that they feel they are prey for predators which would give them cause to have trust issues. I will be changing my bet anytime I see a horse having trouble at the gate. Here’s hoping everybody had a nice and safe Fourth of July with plenty of BBQ and family fun. Whether you go to the track or bet from an offtrack location, I am hoping you are having good luck. And don’t forget to be sure to play with your head and not your heart— unless you just love that horse’s name!

1. State of health. If you have a chronic illness or condition, or are under a doctor’s care, ask your physician before starting a modified eating program or adding dietary supplements. Check for substances that may conflict with your prescription meds or scheduled medical procedures. 2. Daily routine. Do you have access to a private restroom throughout the day? Is brown-bagging a reasonable option for? Is there sufficient time and opportunity to consume water? Select a plan that works with your work life or that you can administer while taking planned time off. 3. Level of discipline. Some people thrive on challenge and achievement. Others just want to get things over with. Most fall somewhere between these two extremes. Detoxing is an important wellness component and finishing is as important as getting started. Most require you to refrain from salt, sugar, flour, meat, dairy, tobacco and smoking, caffeine and carbonated drinks for some period of time. Choose a program that is realistic for you. This is not a time to be too lofty. Plan to start and complete your chosen program. 4. Affordability. Choose a program that meets the above criteria AND fits your budget. It’s great if you wish to sacrifice luxuries and frivolities in the name of getting well, but don’t fool around with your mortgage or car payment!

Warren Lane, from pg. 3 tion, and sent out bills and collected payments. He planted fig and other fruit trees along the pipe line from the springs to the pumping station. The sale of fruit yielded additional income for the young water company. Under Lane’s management, the small water company grew from servicing 343 to more than 6,000 consumers. The company provided samples of the fresh pure water at an exposition at the Shrine AuHuerta, from pg. 3 lowed by Univision for a documentary. The crew followed him and another girl in a school in Los Angeles to get an idea of
ditorium where many considered selling bottled Centinela Spring Water. His efforts became one of the city’s greatest assets and was purchased by the City of Inglewood in 1918. It continues to provide much-needed water for most of the city. Sanford Anderson campaigned to pass a bond measure for the Inglewood to buy the water company. The water treatment plant is named for him. Part 2 of “J. Warren Lane” will run in the next edition
