A remarkable event took place on August 28, 1945. That was the day that Branch Rickey met Jackie Robinson for the first time. The meeting ended with a handshake between a white man and a black man sealing a promise, which in 1945 was nothing less than remarkable.
The promise made by Robinson was not to start a physical fight when a racial slur was directed at him.
Branch Rickey, the old Brooklyn Dodgers’ club president and general manager at the time, was serious about…Continue

A little over a year ago, the voters of San Pedro, Wilmington, Harbor City, Harbor Gateway and Watts took a chance by electing a political newcomer - their neighborhood cop - to represent them on the Los Angeles City Council.
I came to City Hall as an outsider with no experience in politics; just a passion for my hometown, and a desire to make the communities I represent a better…Continue

Please note the fate that befell The Roman Empire was attributed to internal decay and its size. The Roman Empire was spread out all over the known world, as is the U.S. of today. Internal decay of the Empire was the result of political incompetence, military decline, and a degradation of social mores. Does all this sound familiar? It should.
Political incompetence at the federal level of our government is reigning supreme. Congressional representatives are too busy playing the…Continue

Thinking of what has happened in the banking industry has really made this curmudgeon miss the “good old days” when men were men and banks were banks.
Going to the bank then was necessary, just like today, but also was fun and enjoyable. Banks back then were really local, neighborhood financial centers where everyone knew each other. The bank president was usually an older man or woman of good standing in the community and who had worked his or her way up through the ranks ,…Continue

I love the use of words and how we label things. The new Harbor Highlands development on North Gaffey is in a Tsunami Zone. The next time you drive down Gaffey from the Target store look at the signage on the left side of the street. Just before you get to the new development you will see an entering a Tsunami Zone sign. As you progress further you will leave the zone. The fact that the "Highlands" are in fact probably the closest to sea level is a hoot.
