Changing Face of Compton

fireworks3
Compton is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. It is home to almost 100,000 citizens. Known as the “Hub City” because of its unique position in almost the exact geographical center of Los Angeles County, Compton is strategically located along the Alameda Corridor, a passageway of 25 percent of all U.S. waterborne international trade. Compton is rapidly emerging as a large industrial center in Los Angeles County for transit and distribution, business services, high technology, home and lifestyle products, metals, financial services, and textile manufacturing.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Oh Lord, our God how excellent is Thy Name in all the earth. The Name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. There is power in the Name of Jesus. Thank You Lord for giving us the privilege to use Your Name. We call on a lot of names during the course of a day, but we pray each one will recognize the importance to call on the Name Jesus. Help us to remember You are the only constant we have, so it makes sense to stick close to You. It makes sense to talk to You all the time about everything. Thank You Lord for Your ever presence in our life and for promising to never leave us. Help us to remember You WILL supply our every need, so if there is anything we feel we lack today, give us the wisdom to talk to You about it and trust if we truly need it, You will supply it. Give us the courage to go get our blessing today, but keep in contact with You to verify what we’re getting is from You. We praise You in advance for an absolutely perfect day today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Because of Calvary,

Bishop Willie Williams

Former Compton Mayor & Centennial High Alumni Omar Bradley Cleared Of Misusing Public Funds In 2004!!

An appeals court overturned the criminal conviction of former Compton Mayor Omar Bradley on Wednesday, nixing him of a 2004 conviction for the misuse of public funds. The mayor was elected in 1993, but left office in 2001.

Bradley initially fought the conviction and a state appeals court refused to throw it out.


But last year the U.S. Supreme Court set a new standard for convicting public officials of crimes, ruling that officials had to know at the time of the crime that what they were doing was illegal.

Bradley then argued that the Compton city manager approved his use of city funds for golf and travel. A three-justice appellate court panel agreed with Bradley and overturned the conviction.

The California Attorney General’s Office will decide whether to further appeal the ruling.

Bradley spent some of his three-year sentence in a halfway house, and has been free on bond while the case was in appeal.

The decision does not affect Bradley’s co-defendants, who were also convicted of misusing city funds. They are former City Councilman Amen Rahh (who paid for dental work with city money) and former city manager John D. Johnson (who was convicted of misappropriation of public funds).

I am trying to find a old picture of Compton. My neighbor told me that the shore line use to stop at Rosecrans and Parmelee and from Parmelee to the beach is all fill in. He showed me a old picture of it but he is no longer with us and I am trying to find a picture. If you have one or know someone with one let me know.
