The Los Angeles County district attorney is investigating two Inglewood elected officials who borrowed hundreds of thousands of dollars through a low-interest loan program originally intended to help city administrators and executives afford to live in town. The probe stems from complaints about Inglewood's Residential Incentive Policy program, in which Mayor Roosevelt Dorn and Treasurer Wanda Brown participated.

A 21-year-old Inglewood man who beat a sleeping homeless man with a baseball bat was sentenced to 11 years in prison Wednesday, as his victim graciously expressed compassion for his attacker. Ernest Adams, 56, a long scar and scalp depression left by the attack visible through his black hair, told the court, "I do not have revenge in my heart" for Justin Edward Brumfield, who police said admitted to committing the crime after watching a "Bumfight" video depicting homeless men brawling.

Scores of hospital employees and community activists turned out Wednesday night to voice concerns about the closure of yet another Los Angeles County emergency room, this time at Memorial hospital in Inglewood. What many of them didn't realize was that their testimony had no chance of forcing the emergency room to remain open. Hearings such as the one at Inglewood's Faithful Central Bible Church, attended by about 150 people, are essentially venting sessions.

Memorial hospital in Inglewood confirmed Wednesday that it expects to close more departments, raising new concerns about the availability of healthcare service in and around South Los Angeles. Centinela Freeman HealthSystem, the hospital's operator, announced last month that it would close Memorial's emergency room and consolidate its local emergency care at Centinela hospital, about 1 1/2 miles away.

Centinela Freeman HealthSystem announced Tuesday that it will close the emergency room at Memorial hospital in Inglewood, a move that critics warn would further strain Los Angeles County's frail emergency care system. Beginning in November, patients would be shifted to the facility's sister campus, Centinela hospital, about 1 1/2 miles away, as part of a consolidation plan aimed at reducing costs.

On their sea-breezy hilltop in an often bad-mouthed city, the residents of Inglewood's Morningside Park, young, old and very old, gathered Saturday to celebrate their neighborhood. Rows of banquet tables covered with alternating blue and gold tablecloths were set beneath the tall ficus trees on 78th Street near West Boulevard. Over each, a white umbrella wobbled and balloons of blue and gold strained on their strings.
