Beverly Hills Bar Association presents 59th Annual California Supreme Court luncheon Featuring appearance and address on current state of judiciary by Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye

The Beverly Hills Bar Association (BHBA), in association with the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation and the Law Guild of Beverly Hills, hosts the 59th Annual Supreme Court Luncheon honoring the California Supreme Court on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, 11:30 a.m., at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye is attending and is providing remarks on the current state of the Judiciary. This is her third appearance at the BHBA’s perennial luncheon since becoming Chief Justice in 2011. Unlike previous years, the Supreme Court Associate Justices will not be in attendance. Due to fiscal constraints caused by the state’s budget cuts, this year the Court is not holding its usual June oral argument session in Los Angeles, around which the BHBA Supreme Court Luncheon has always been slated, but, instead, will remain in San Francisco, where the court normally convenes.

Adam Winkler, professor of Constitutional Law at UCLA and author of “Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right To Bear Arms in America,” is the guest speaker. A specialist in constitutional law, his work has been cited in landmark Supreme Court cases, including opinions dealing with the Second Amendment and the rights of corporate political speech. “We are particularly pleased to have California’s Chief Justice CantilSakauye as our honored guest this year, especially in light of the state’s fiscal constraints,” said BHBA President John Rubiner. “While we will miss having the opportunity to thank the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court in person for their commitment and service to the citizens of our state, this is an invaluable opportunity for the legal community to hear the Chief Justice’s remarks on the current state of the JuPlease see page 4

Alhambra Police Dept. fights crime with ‘Predictive Policing’ BY DENA BURROUGHS Since January of this year, the Alhambra Police Department (APD) has been policing the streets aided by new cutting-edge technology called “Predictive Policing” (PredPol). “PredPol is one more tool to prevent crime,” explained Field Services Captain Elliot Kase. “Based on current crime data, the program can pinpoint areas where there is a higher probability that a crime may occur on a specific day of the week or a particular time of day.” PredPol concerns itself with what the officers know as “Part 1 crimes” - property crimes such as residential burglaries and stolen vehicles. It can not predict erratic behavior (knife

Brown Jr. directed the California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA) to deploy specialists from California’s Urban Search & Rescue teams to assist in response and recovery efforts.

Mike Gatto’s bill to protect local governments from dog park liability passes assembly Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles) proves who’s top dog as his bill to help local governments create dog parks for their residents passed the Assembly Floor Monday with a bipartisan vote of 75-0. Gatto’s AB 265 limits the liability that cities and counties face when operating dog parks and protects them from litigants who claim, for example, that they were unaware of the potential dangers of such parks. Concerned City Councilmember Laura Friedman first stressed the idea of the bill arguing that liability concerns were preventing cities from opening more dog parks.

“I approached Assemblyman Gatto in the fall and am glad to see real action to address this problem for Glendale and other cities” said Friedman. Real action is correct as the bill has already begun receiving high praise from leaders within the community. Burbank City Councilman Jess Talamantes explains the significance of the bill for decision makers stating that “Assemblyman Gatto’s bill provides greater certainty that Burbank’s potential future investment in a dog park will not come back to bite us.” AB 265’s Republican Co-author, Assemblyman Brian Maien-

schein (R-San Diego), who served for eight years on the San Diego City Council, expressed similar sentiments, saying “this bill would have made my life significantly easier when I was on the San Diego City Council and trying to site a dog park.” Jennifer Fearing of The Humane Society of the United States also echoed the importance of dog parks and the passing of this bill stating “The Humane Society is glad for an opportunity to support a bill with the noble goal of nurturing the human-animal bond.” The bill now moves to the Senate for further consideration.

Summer fun at Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego By Greg Aragon Bahia Resort Hotel has been a slice of paradise on San Diego’s Mission Bay for more than 50 years. With lush gardens and swaying palm trees, Mississippi paddlewheel boats and sprawling beach-front charm, the resort makes a great escape from life’s doldrums. Last week a friend and I snuck away to Bahia for a memorable mini-vacation. Our getaway began near Sea World, when we found ourselves rounding beautiful Mission Bay, with its luxury hotels, tiny harbors, and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. When we got to Bahia, we parked beside a small tropical forest surrounding a large pond with two seals, and then checked into the lobby. In our suite overlooking the bay, we found a spacious living area, with a sofa, love seat, large TV, office desk and a kitchenette with a sink, refrigerator, granite counter tops and a coffee maker. There was also a spacious

bathroom, and a separate bedroom with two double beds and another flat screen TV, and free high-speed Internet. The suite’s most attractive feature was the balcony overlooking Mission Bay, where we sat watching kayakers and paddle boarders drift past and fishermen cast their lines in the deep blue water. Outside the room we enjoyed the rest of the 314room Bahia Hotel property, which sits on a secluded 14acre peninsula, with one mile of white sandy beach. One of our favorite spots was at the seal pond, watching Billy and Gracie, the resident seals who moved to Bahia from Sea World when they became blind and could not be released into the wild safely. The black and tan pair are fed twice a day, providing a fun environment for guests of all ages. Another cool attraction is the Bahia Belle, the resort’s “turn of the century” Mississippi-style sternwheeler. Offering cruises across Mission Bay between Bahia and sister property, The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, the boat features fun

and romantic sailings, with live music, cocktail parties and themed cruises. Guests staying at either hotel may enjoy complimentary rides around Mission Bay. Near the Belle, we rented paddle boards and practiced our balance on long surf boards, oaring our way through the calm bay and getting a great arm workout in the process. Back on dry land we strolled through the property’s winding paths, lined with thick tropical gardens, well manicured lawns and trickling streams. Along the way, we encountered friendly ducks, wondering across the shuffleboard courtyard. For dinner, we experienced Café Bahia, the resort’s signature Mediterranean-inspired restaurant. Nestled in tropical gardens, Café Bahia serves Southern California cuisine, with a flair for fresh grilled seafood and prime steaks.

Chinese activist Wu Lihong refused National Hamburger Day - May 28 a good time also happens to be National Pasadena and Alhambra as a passport to accept award in L.A. to beItinisthealways Dog Haus, Pasa- Hamburger Day! On this well as Dog Haus Biergarten China’s environmental activist Wu Lihong has been refused a passport by the government of China to go to Los Angeles to accept an award from Visual Artists Guild. Visual Artists Guild is a human rights organization which champions the right of freedom of speech and expression. After Mr. Wu was refused a passport, his wife and daughter applied for a passport but have yet to receive one. The award ceremony is scheduled for this Sunday, May 26, 2013 at Golden Dragon Restaurant in Los Angeles Chinatown.

Without giving a reason, the school where Mr. Wu’ daughter is attending changed her dissertation date from May 19 to May 27, the date after Visual Artists Guild’s award ceremony. This change affects not only Mr. Wu’s daughter but all her classmates as well. Mr. Wu has been active for more than two decades about the pollution of Lake Tai, China’s third largest fresh water lake. He was named “Environmental Warrior” by China’s National Peoples Congress in 2005. When Mr. Wu continued his crusade about Lake Tai, he was sentenced to three years

in prison on some trumped up charges in August, 2007. It was also reported in Australian Financial Review that Mr. Wu was offered “compensation” if “ his family did not attend the award ceremony and even suggested they could find a job for his daughter”. This series of attempts to block Mr. Wu family from coming to Los Angeles to accept the award follows China’s government release of a white paper this month stating that “China is working hard to build a beautiful country and earnestly guaranteeing the citizens’ environmental rights and interests.”

Garza said that most of the preschoolers begin his program with little to no language, significant behavior challenges, and little awareness of the world. Some of

his methods of improving development skills include playing the guitar to his students. “It is an indescribable feeling to witness firsthand the development of a child who has missed crucial milestones in his or her life, and when given the appropriate intervention, individuals with autism have the potential to change the direction

of their lives,” Garza said. Garza graduated from California State University, Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Arts in Child Development, and a Master of Arts in Early Childhood Special Education. “It has been an honor to be asked back by both of my alma maters to teach and influence new generation of teachers,” Garza said.

The Jerry Herman Awards will focus much needed attention on the meaningful work being done by today’s dedicated teachers and celebrate kids with wide ranging talents on and off the stage.

State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson announces funding for school construction and modernization projects

California home sales and prices spring higher in April; median price posts five-year high, A.A.R. reports Fueled by high demand and tight inventory, California home sales and prices both experienced strong increases in April, with the median price surpassing the $400,000-mark for the first time in five years, the Arcadia Association of REALTORS® reported. “California’s housing market maintained its momentum in April, getting the spring home-buying season off to a good start,” said 2013 A.A.R. President Andy Bencosme. “Southern California regions such as Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego led the way in both month-tomonth and year-over-year sales increases, while sales in the Bay Area region as a whole posted a healthy monthly gain but dipped slightly from last year.” Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 423,510 units in April, according to information collected from the California Association of REALTORS ® from more

than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. Sales in April were up 1.3 percent from a revised 417,880 in March but down 3.7 percent from a revised 439,770 in April 2012. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2013 if sales maintained the April pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. The statewide median price of an existing, single-family detached home climbed 6.3 percent from March’s revised median price of $378,960 to $402,760 in April, signaling the first time since April 2008 that the statewide median price has exceeded the $400,000 mark (and was the highest since then). April’s price was up 28.9 percent from a revised $312,500 recorded in April 2012, marking 14 straight months of annual price increases and the tenth consecutive month of double-digit annual gains. The median sales price is the point at

which half of homes sold for more and half sold for less; it is influenced by the types of homes selling as well as a general change in values. “The upsurge in the median price continues to be driven by an increase in sales in the upper- price range, where low inventory is less of an issue,” said A.A.R. Executive Vice President Andrew Cooper. “Over the past year, home sales in the $500,000-andhigher market segment posted a year-over-year gain of 35 percent on average, which contributed to an increase in the statewide median price of nearly 30 percent from the previous year.” Other key facts of C.A.R.’s April 2013 resale housing report include: The available supply of homes for sale was essentially unchanged from March, but was down markedly from a year ago. The April Unsold Inventory Index for existing, single-family detached homes was 2.8 months in April, down from 2.9 months in

March, and down from 4.2 months in April 2012. The index indicates the number of months needed to sell the supply of homes on the market at the current sales rate. A six- to seven-month supply is considered normal. Increased market competition has significantly driven down the time on market compared with a year ago. Homes sold more quickly in April, with the median number of days it took to sell a singlefamily home decreasing to 27.9 days in April, down from 29.4 days in March and down from a revised 48 days for the same period a year ago. Mortgage rates dipped in April, with the 30-year fixed-mortgage interest rate averaging 3.45 percent, down from 3.57 percent in March 2013 and down from 3.91 percent in April 2012, according to Freddie Mac. Adjustable-mortgage interest rates were flat from March, averaging 2.63 percent in April, but down from 2.78 percent in April 2012.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today that the State Allocation Board (SAB) disbursed more than $519 million for 230 school construction and modernization projects across 92 school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools throughout the state. “Our schools are community centerpieces and play a key role in preparing young people for the future,” Torlakson said. “Local districts now have additional resources to bring to bear on constructing and rebuilding schools, which in turn creates jobs and improves our students’ chances for success.” Torlakson’s Schools of the Future Initiative lays out the framework for “21st century learning” through the construc-

tion and modernization of school facilities, utilization of new technology, energy efficiency, and facilities for science and career technology education. The State Superintendent is one of 10 members of the SAB, which meets monthly to allocate state matching funds for the construction of new classrooms, the modernization of existing schools, and other programs to improve learning environments, and adopts policies and regulations regarding SAB programs. The funds allocated by the SAB are from voter-approved general obligation bonds that cannot be used for school operational expenses.

PRESCRIBING FOR SLEEP APNEA? YOUR DME COMPANY LETTING YOU DOWN? If you’re frustrated with your DME provider, find out why thousands of physicians prefer “Classic”

Why Classic?

We relieve you from the burden of answering day-to-day equipment issues.

“Sleep” is our specialty. That’s right, no oxygen, scooters, wheelchairs, beds or other DME. We supply only PAP equipment and related replenishment supplies. This allows us to be real experts in what we do and to concentrate on delivering the patient care that matters. The fact we serve more than 18,000 patients over 18 states and are growing rapidly is testament to our focus and commitment to delivering timely setup and having happy and compliant patients.

able to continue to collect usage data.

Compliance through great patient care

When calling patients we use data generated from our proprietary Download on Demand® software. This takes the raw data streams from patient’s modems, parses the data to produce compliance reports containing key data points and a graph that our clinicians use so that they can have an intelligent conversation with the patient based on that patient’s actual use of their equipment. Of course patients can (and do!) call in to our patient care center for help and advice from our clinicians at any time.

is what really sets us apart from the pack. Our licensed respiratory professionals (respiratory therapists and registered sleep techs) work with patients from the time of setup and throughout their therapy with one goal in mind…to ensure they quickly adapt to their therapy and stay compliant over time.

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

was carefully designed to achieve this. The first step of the program is for one of our licensed respiratory therapists to complete the setup faceto-face with the patient, either in their home or their doctor’s office, usually within 72 hours of approval. Our R/T will set the machine to the prescription and then educate the patient on its use, care and maintenance. And educate the patient on what to expect over the first days and weeks of their therapy. We set up all patients on the highest quality machines fitted with wireless modems (regardless of insurance). And we leave the modems on the machine indefinitely so as to be

Interested in learning more? www.classicsleepcare.com

After setup patients are passed to our patient care center for ongoing compliance care. Our licensed clinicians make outgoing calls at 72 hours, 30 days and 90 days after setup to interdict any problems patients may be having. A field R/T will make a re-visit to a patient in their home where a problem cannot be resolved over the phone.

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

Our goal is to have happy, compliant patients while taking the brunt of the every-day questions patients invariably have. This relieves the burden from our referring physician’s offices who otherwise have to deal with this call volume, and depending on the experience of the doctor in this field, may not be able to answer typical questions the patient has regarding equipment issues (e.g. how to fix a leaking mask).

Skeptical?

So you’ve heard it all before? All the DME’s brag that they’re the best and have a great compliance and supply replenishment program.... everybody talks the talk...so who do you believe? Your patients...that’s who! We’ll prove it to you. Send us two or three patients and then ask your patients about the care they received and their opinion of the process... then compare the results to your existing DME provider. Talk to your staff about the interaction they have with our office. Look at our documentation. Reach out to Bill Kleiman (contact info below) to set up an inservice over lunch with your staff to go over our program and answer any questionvs you may have.

The prescribing doctor receives documentation by eFax (or electronically via EMR system integration), starting with confirmation of receipt of the referral through every touch we have with the patient. This includes a copy of the 2-page compliance reports containing our Download on Demand® data and a copy of the notes made by our clinician during a call. Our proprietary systems automate the flow of documentation keeping referring doctors completely informed about their patients’ progress and ensure physicians have the documentation they need for follow-up consultations with their patients.
