The Tunnel—Part 2: Safety By Marla Schevker and Courier Staff Publisher’s Note: This is part two of an eight-part series on the proposed Westside Subway Extension through Beverly Hills. California’s schools are built to exacting safety standards and that is no accident. All public school construction plans must

Council Votes Against Funding Rose Float Ignoring the endorsements of the Rodeo Drive Committee, Conference & Visitors Bureau and the president of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce, a 3-2 majority of the city council rejected underwriting a Beverly Hills entry into the 2012 Tournament of Roses. Two weeks ago, Councilmember Julian Gold, M.D., stated that the city had “plenty of money” to fund the effort, but wanted input from the city’s three business organizations and asked for their input. These organizations responded Tuesday in favor, but Gold, Mayor Barry

Brucker and Vice Mayor Willie Brien rejected it anyway. Brucker had previously stated, “The Rose Float is the best investment we can make in marketing the city.” The funds would be allocated from money generated by the city’s hotel tax already allocated for marketing purposes. No city general funds would be used. Nearly 200 members of the Beverly Hills community volunteered for the float and more were expected for (see ‘ROSE FLOAT,’ page 14)

Brucker Networks At Mayors Conference By Tricia Arend Beverly Hills’ Mayor Barry Brucker joined several hundred other mayors at the U.S. Conference of Mayors this past weekend. Brucker said he left on Thursday and came back early Tuesday morning from Baltimore, site of the third Conference of Mayors he has attended to date. The mayor said the main highlight of the trip was networking with other mayors in a non-competitive welcoming environment. He discussed such issues as crime, education, transporta-

tion, job retention and environmental issues with mayors from around the U.S. and learned what has been successful and what has not. Brucker said there were several things he learned about that he considered bringing back to Beverly Hills, which included negotiation methods with employee bargaining units over pension reform, a significant use of electric vehicles and pushing for tapping into shallow water to combat wa(see ‘MAYORS,’ page 15)

BHUSD Receives Low Interest Rate By Marla Schevker The Beverly Hills Unified School District was notified Tuesday it received the lowest interest rate out of the L. A. County on its annual short-term loan. It also received the highest short-term loan rating of SP-1+ from Standard and Poor’s. Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Alex Cherniss said a high rating indicates high investor confi-

dence. Every year the Los Angeles County of Education gets a loan of hundreds of millions of dollars and they split it up among school districts in the county. For 2011/2012 the BHUSD received a $7.8 million loan at 4.6 percent interest. Cherniss said it is typical for school districts to get short-term loans each fis(see ‘LOAN RATING,’ page 12)

BHUSD Discuss Fees, Charges By Marla Schevker As the California Legislature continues to discuss Assembly Bill 165 which will update the types of fees a school district can charge, the BHUSD discussed the potential legislation at its meeting June 16 with Best Best & Krieger attorney Cathy Holmes. There are currently 20 permissible fees, charges and deposits authorized by law. These fees include fines or reimbursements for lost or damaged school property and actual costs for the duplication of records. Holmes said the BHUSD’s board policy regarding fees

appropriately set out the areas which can be charged. PTA Council President Susie Roberts recommended the district begin discussions with the PTAs and BHEF. The four K-8 schools average about $100,000 in total expenditures associated with three outdoor education trips. This does not include any other costs they might incur. Although there is not set time period when the litigation will be decided, Holmes will serve as an intermediary to help the district form a working group made up of PTA, site administrators, district staff and BHEF.

VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR—Horace Mann PTA Vice President of Programs Tina Wiener was awarded the “PTA Volunteer of the Year” award for the 33rd district. She is pictured here with Horace Mann PTA President Howard Goldman.

Volunteer Of The Year For Wiener By Marla Schevker Horace Mann PTA Vice President of Programs Tina Wiener was awarded the “Parent Volunteer Of The Year” for the 33rd district. Wiener was given her award on Monday. Wiener has been volunteering at the Horace Mann

PTA for five years. Wiener said some high points from the year include bringing back the Science Olympiad team and holding Family Nights. Although Wiener has been active in the Horace Mann PTA, she was not expecting to win an award. (see ‘VOLUNTEER,’ page 12)

CHLA Unveils New $636 Million Hospital Building By Brenton Garen Children’s Hospital Los Angeles yesterday dedicated and held a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new seven-story, 460,000-square-foot building, which will provide 317 more pediatric-care beds at its hospital campus. CHLA’s President/CEO Richard Cordova was joined by city officials, patients and parents at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion, a $636 million building.

Marion Anderson, a hospital board of trustees member who along with her husband donated $50 million toward the project, was also on hand. The building is one of the most technologically advanced in the country. It includes real-time electronic tracking and recording of patients’ vital signs and surgical equipment in rooms for critically ill children to allow for immediate bedside procedures, according to hospital officials. The hospital will include

120 beds dedicated exclusively to intensive care. The rooms were all designed with unique “family zones” that provide room for relatives to stay overnight with patients. The building also includes family lounges, a business center with Internet access and reference materials and a 24-hour “Family Pantry” for families staying with their children around the clock. About 200 patients are expected to be moved into the building on July 17.

Sunset Blvd Modification Meeting This Monday By Tricia Arend A special meeting will be held by the Traffic & Parking Commission to review and discuss the modification plan for three Sunset Boulevard inter-

sections on Monday. The community is invited to attend the meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. on the second floor of the City Hall Municipal Gallery, 455 N Rexford Dr., to

During the last election, Goldberg said he promised the voters transparency, accountability and oversight. “My first term has been dominated by cleaning up other people’s messes and putting the district in a situation to work from moving from good to great,” Goldberg said. “I’m very optimistic of our recent hire of (Superintendent) Gary Woods. “We’ve put a lot of pieces in place to be great again and I would like to be a pat of continuing this work and ensuring we stay on the path we’ve been working so diligently to get on.” Over the past four years he encouraged bringing in the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team to review food services and special education, he was an early proponent of the Facilities Advisory Committee and supported internal auditors to regularly evaluate the districts practices procedures and support.

Goldberg said he has created a four-point plan for the next four years, that includes: 1. Fiscal responsibility. 2. Finish the creation and implementation of the district-wide Master Facility Plan. 3. Develop curriculum for the 21st century including the International Baccalaureate program and the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) curriculum. 4. Integrate technology throughout the district to promote critical and creative thinking. July 18 is the first day to register as an official candidate for the November 8 election. Goldberg said he is looking forward the campaign. “I’m very proud of my service and my record,” Goldberg said. “I’m looking forward to a vigorous and healthy discussion about my record on the school board and vision (to implement if I am reelected) for the school board for the next four years.”

Surgical Oncology Specialists Trained At JWCI Join Fight Against Cancer This month, the John Wayne Cancer Institute (JWCI) at St. John’s Health Center made an important contribution to the fight against cancer by graduating six surgical oncology physicians from its Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program to become the next generation of cancer research and treatment leaders. For more than 30 years, JWCI has been dedicated to eradicating cancer and educating the next generation of cancer surgeons by building a vital pipeline of experts with the shared vision of a world without cancer. More than 110 fellows have graduated from the intensive program, ranked among the top four in the nation. Institute graduates serve as leaders in major academic institutions and health centers worldwide, all collaborating to make important advances in cancer care “It was a privilege to be instructed by renowned cancer surgeons during my fellowship at the John Wayne Cancer Institute,” said Dr. Shawn T. Steen, the Carolyn Dirks Fellow and Chief Administrative Fellow. “I’m am far better pre-

Steen, Dr. Hamed Kargozaran, Dr. Nancy McLaughlin and Dr. Daniel Kelly, director of JWCI’s Brain Tumor Center.

pared as a surgeon and researcher, and look forward to making great strides against this terrible disease.” The six graduating doctors were recognized during a ceremony featuring Dr. Donald L. Morton, JWCI chief of melanoma and director of the Surgical Oncology Fellowship

Program. Graduates included Dr. Steen, Dr. Hamed Kargozaran, Ruth and Martin H. Weil Fellow; Nancy McLaughlin, Ph.D., Neuro Oncology Fellow; Christopher J. Moran, FACS, Harold McAlister Charitable Foundation Fellow; Camelia A. Lawrence, Lois

Rosen Breast Fellow and SooHwa Han, the JWCI Auxiliary Breast Fellow. JWCI’s fellowship program is funded through individual donors and foundations, such as longtime supporter Lois Rosen. “I believe it is critical that we educate and empower spe-

cialists who will in turn train and raise the bar for other physicians,” said Rosen, who funded Dr. Lawrence’s breast fellowship. “JWCI is one of the few certified training centers in the nation, and I think it’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made,” Rosen said.

USC Receives $150M Grant From Keck Foundation To Boost Scientific Research USC has received a $150 million gift from the W.M. Keck Foundation designed to boost scientific research at the university’s medical school and two affiliated hospitals, the university has announced. “This $150 million gift from the Keck Foundation will have a profound impact on our community and our world for generations to come,” USC President C.L. Max Nikias said. “It will be a catalyst for dramatic discoveries and developments in medical research, teaching and patient care.” The gift is the second “transformative” gift the Keck Foundation has made in recent years to USC’s medical programs, following its $110 million gift in 1999 to the Keck School of Medicine of USC, the university said. In recognition of the gift, USC’s academic medical programs will be named Keck Medicine of USC in perpetuity. It will comprise the Keck Medical Center of USC and Keck School of Medicine. The Keck Medical Center will

include University Hospital, which will be renamed the Keck Hospital of USC, and USC’s faculty practice, which will be renamed the Keck Doctors of USC, as well as USC Norris Cancer Hospital. “We believe that this partnership with USC will fund outstanding research to expand the boundaries of medical knowledge and improve quality of life for vast numbers of people,” said Robert Day, chairman/CEO of the W.M. Keck Foundation. “This gift reflects our commitment to bringing cutting-edge science, medicine and engineering together to find new and better ways forward.” The Keck money will be paid out over 20 years with the goal of raising the academic reputation of USC’s medical school now that the university has full authority over USC University Hospital, a 411-bed general care facility, and the 60-bed USC Norris Cancer Hospital, attorney James Ukropina, a Keck Foundation vice president, said. —CNS

It also now includes a flower shop, a jewelry corner, a self-service café, surfboards, home furnishings, jewelry and personal care items. According to Herman, the expansion comes at a delicate time for Japan, which is recovering from the March earthquake and tsunami. Fashion events and store openings have been scarce the past few months. “We're a place where people want to go. I think we satisfy more than just a need for fashion,” he said.

SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT

How Much Retirement Income Will You Really Need? By Paul Taghibagi, CFP®, ChFC hat is enough? What is not enough? If you’re considering retiring in the near future, you’ve probably heard or read that you need about 70 percent of your end salary to live comfortably in retirement. This estimate is frequently repeated … but that doesn’t mean it’s true for everyone. It may not be true for you. You won’t learn how much retirement income you’ll need by reading this article. You’ll want to meet with a qualified retirement planner who can help you plan to estimate your lifestyle needs and short- and long-term expenses. That said, there are some factors that affect retirement income needs—and too often, they go unconsidered. • Health. Most of us will face a major health problem at some point in our lives— perhaps even multiple or chronic health problems. We don’t want to think about that reality. But if you’re a new retiree, think for a moment about the costs of prescription medicines, and recurring treatment for chronic ailments. These minor and major costs can take a bite out of retirement income, even with a great health-care plan. While generics have slowed the advance of prescription drug costs to about 1-2 percent a year, one recent estimate found that a 65year-old who retired in 2007 would need $215,000 to pay for overall retirement health-care costs—up about 7.5 percent from 2006. • Heredity. If you come from a family where people frequently live into their 80s and 90s, you may live as long or longer. Imagine retiring at 55 and living to 95 or 100. You would need 40-45 years of steady retirement income.

W

• Portfolio. Many people retire with investment portfolios they haven’t reviewed in years, with asset allocations that may no longer be appropriate. New retirees sometimes carry too much risk in their portfolios, with the result being that the retirement income from their investments fluctuates wildly with the vagaries of the market. Other retirees are super-conservative investors: their portfolios are so risk-averse they can’t earn enough to keep up with even moderate inflation, and over time, they find they have less and less purchasing power. • Spending habits. Do you only spend 70 percent of your salary? Probably not. If you’re like many Americans, you probably spend 90-95 percent of it. Will your spending habits change drastically once you retire? Again, probably not. Most people only change spending habits in response to economic necessity or in pursuit of new financial goals. People don’t want to “live on less” once they have had “more.” • Social Security (or lack thereof). In 2005, SSI represented 39 percent of a typical 65-year-old retiree’s income. But by 2030, Social Security may only replace 29 percent of that income, after deductions for Medicare premiums and income taxes. Since 1983, retirees earning more than $25,000 in SSI have had to pay income tax on a portion of their benefits. This is all presuming Social Security is still around in 2030. So will you have enough? When it comes to retirement income, a casual assumption may prove to be woefully inaccurate. Meet with a qualified retirement planner while you are still working to discuss these factors and estimate how much you will really need.

this year. Last year’s entry, funded mainly by private donations, brought the City network television coverage worth over $9.3 million in the United States alone, garnered over 12,500 actual news stories nam-

flooded with rooters from Wisconsin and Texas Christian Universities leading to sell-outs of hotels and overflow crowds in the City’s stores and restaurants. The City, citing budget issues, held on to $420,000 of last year’s City marketing funds. This year, the council has diverted or held back nearly $1 million of specially-designated TOT marketing funds with no plans to spend them in support of local business. Councilmembers John Mirisch and Lili Bosse supported returning to the Tournament. Bosse, who was initially opposed, said she had examined all the facts and now strongly supported the effort. Mirisch began the City’s return to the Rose Parade last year and continues to support it. Gold two weeks ago said in open ses-

sion that he would support the venture if the City’s three organizations supported it. He reversed himself to join the opposition. Brucker, who two weeks ago supported Gold’s motion to seek recommendations from the three business organizations, also rejected the organization’s recommendations. He floated the idea of a “a block party” on New Years Eve or the day after New Years Day. He also suggested placing a kiosk on Rodeo Drive to offer free lattes, hot chocolate and apple cider. Another option would be an ice skating rink. He did not say how a block party or free lattes would result in international publicity for the City of Beverly Hills.

BEVERLY HILLS Gold’s original proposal from two weeks ago was for the City to underwrite the effort by adopting a “worst case” scenario with the City promising to fund the entire effort. When he made the motion, he knew that there was no chance the “worst case” scenario would occur. Last year, private donors paid two thirds of the cost. This year, the Beverly Hills Tournament of Roses Committee reported it already had tentative commitments of $110,000 towards the $275,000 total cost. “The question I (ask) the council is do we want to commit approximately $345,000 to pay for the 2011 arrearage and 2012 float?” Brucker asked the council. For Bosse and Mirisch, the answer was an overwhelming yes. “I think it is good value for money and there are other things I think aren’t as good value that don’t give us the TOT revenue,” Mirisch said. Vice Mayor Willie Brien said his problems do not stem directly from the float. “I don’t have an issue with the float, the float was beautiful,” Brien said. “But I don’t believe its worth $250,000. I don’t believe it’s worth $150,000. I think this money can be spent on bringing people directly into the City.” Brien voted to support the float last year, then claimed he did not. He apparently did not notice the thousands of visitors from the Rose Parade last year wearing their school colors as he was in New York at the time. Bosse recommended the council fund the float committee their original request of $130,000 and the $70,000 in arrearages. “As with anything you ever do, the first year is the hardest,” Bosse said. ”We’ve already created community support, we have the momentum. The first year we didn’t have that and we were really going up hill.” The City Council decided to place an action item on the July 7 agenda to see if they are going to pay the $70,000 in arrearages from the 2011 float. Last year, the council voted unanimously in open session to assure the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Committee that it would provide “any” support necessary to the float effort if Beverly Hills received an invitation to participate. ThenMayor Nancy Krasne and Mirisch sent a letter to the Tournament of Roses confirming the promise. The tournament then issued the invitation in reliance on the City Council’s written assurance of support. The Beverly Hills Committee raised almost $200,000 of private donations in support, but the council has yet to decide whether to fund the remaining $70,000 of costs from last year, including $10,000 owed to the City for a loan.

structed in 1928 before adoption of the Field Act, but has been retrofitted a number of times since to comply with safety standards. The Act is definitive. No matter how safe a building may be, that building cannot be used for a public school unless its construction complies with state standards. One of those standards is that no public school building may be higher than four stories. That makes ground area the determining factor in what can be built on a school campus. Unlike office buildings, a school cannot just “go up and up” to accommodate more students. This means if something were to happen to Beverly Hills High School and students could no longer attend school there, they could not be moved to an office building.

BEVERLY HILLS

COUNCIL (Continued from page 1)

fuse to join the Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education to take action to protect the City’s only high school. While the three said they “opposed” the tunnel, they voted against taking any action to stop it. Brien acknowledged: ”Our efforts have not worked so far” but only promised more of the same. Councilmembers John Mirisch and Lili Bosse lost in their efforts to get the council to take action. Brucker reported that at last weekend’s U.S. Conference of Mayors in Baltimore, he spoke with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa about the subway, telling him: “I’m only one vote away from opposing 30/10.” That is Villaraigosa’s signature effort to get funds to accelerate construction of the subway. The L.A. mayor commands more votes on the MTA board than anyone else. Brucker said he had been invited to meet with Villaraigosa to discuss Beverly Hills’ concerns. As of press time, Villaraigosa had not scheduled a meeting with Brucker. Brucker and Brien comprise the council’s liaison committee and Brien gave its recommendations on how to proceed. Their recommendations were for City staff to conduct a

series of meetings with school district staff, each other, and then meet with MTA representatives, if they would meet. After that, the council and the school board would meet in open session and “decide what to do.” The board has already retained counsel and experts to contest the tunnel. Brien said the City would rely on members of its own staff and a lobbyist. “All of us here in these chambers, all of the emails you’ve received, demonstrate you have a united City,” Southwest Homeowners Association President Ken Goldman said. “If we lose the battle for complete flexibility, we will have lost the war. It’s easy to say wait, it’s more difficult to make a tough decision. It’s been nine months that the council has been trying to negotiate with Metro. It’s time to be proactive; It’s time today to say to Metro, ‘If you change the longstanding plan to put the station on Santa Monica and instead tunnel under our high school then we change our support for the Westside Extension and 30/10.” The 30/10 plan, also known as America Fast Forward, is a funding plan for the Westside Subway Extension if it is built on an accelerated time frame. Brucker said rescinding Beverly Hills’ support for the 30/10 plan would be a strategic political move. Without Bever-

ly HIlls’ support, the subway cannot be built through the City. Former BHUSD Board of Education President Herb Young said this is an issue of perception and the public perceives the City Council as not taking action. “In the 51 years I’ve lived in Beverly Hills, the City Council has always taken the lead (when) dealing with important matters,” Young said. “The school district has taken the lead. (Councilmember Julian Gold, Vice Mayor Willie Brien and Brucker) don’t seem to be present. The leadership is not coming from where it should which is right here (with the City Council).” Beverly High junior Stephanie Ordaz also expressed concern for the subway tunnel. “I know I’ll graduate before the subway is built, but my sister will be there,” Ordaz said. “There are too many dangers involved. You cannot allow them to build a (tunnel) where there is any danger for kids.” Councilmember Lili Bosse said: “We already have the lobbyist, we’re already having liaison meetings with the school board, so what’s left to consider to me does not reflect our community—it’s more of the staff. Bimonthly staff to staff meetings, a public forum, we’ve been down that road. We’ve spent our time talking to

an empty tunnel of MTA not listening. We’re not going down that road again.” To date, the City Council under Brien and Brucker has taken a behind-the-scenes, passive approach to the subway tunnel under the high school that even Brien admitted has not worked. However, Brien said he did not want to take any drastic actions, such as pulling Beverly Hills’ support for 30/10, and lose the current diplomatic connections. “Walking away from the table when you have any hope to negotiate with someone is foolish,” Brien said. “If you get up and walk away, you rarely get a chance to come back. Diplomacy has not worked to date, but I think we still need to try. We must continue down the road of attempting to work with these people and convince them we have a better plan than their original plan.” Mirisch countered that no one said anything about “walking away from the table.” Bosse and Mirisch moved that the city would oppose any subway through Beverly Hills if it involves a tunnel under the high school. Brucker, Brien and Gold defeated that motion. Instead, they voted to support more talk, more meetings and a refusal to take action against the tunnel. “The way the school board has conducted themselves is the way I would have gone had

June 24, 2011 | Page 17 I been on the school board,” Bosse said. “I feel we need to take an aggressive approach.. We can all tell MTA, we don’t want a tunnel under the high school, but MTA isn’t hearing anything on the other side of that. We need to say if you want to tunnel under our high school we don’t want the subway in Beverly Hills.” Both Bosse and Mirisch proposed strong action, ultimately ending in a consequence for the MTA if they choose to build a tunnel under the high school including pulling support for 30/10. Gold then proposed waiting some more with more meetings. His motion seemed to indicate a pattern of proposing delays then voting against taking action. “Within the next 45 days we will meet jointly with the school board and all of the information relevant to the discussion will be presented at that time,” Gold said in his motion. “Among us, hopefully we will come to some resolution and all things will be on the table including opposition to the 30/10 plan if necessary.” He referred to “resolution” between the council and school board, since MTA remains opposed. Brucker, Brien and Gold approved the motion; Mirisch and Bosse voted “no.” Brucker left open the possibility that he may join Mirisch and Bosse if Villaraigosa fails to respond.

stations. Beverly Hills won’t have control over what art is chosen but they will have an opportunity to provide input. “At the point the MTA is prepared to make decisions about artwork, an RFP will go out for the type of art they are looking for and artists will submit samples,” Willmer said. “Involved in that RFP process would be members of the Beverly Hills community probably picked in a very similar matter to which the station advisory groups were picked.”

Olympic and Beverwil/Beverly. He said it was yet to be decided whether these would be additional to the current nine red-light camera approaches or whether two existing cameras would be moved to these intersections. “I can’t speak to the L.A. program because I don’t know what their issues are, but I know a great portion of the success of a camera has to do with where they are placed,” Rosen said. “We do detailed studies prior to installing a camera and we base it on locations that either have a high accident rate, a high issuance of citations or some combination of the two.” Beverly Hills has a contract with Redflex Traffic System that charges a flat rate of $5,870 per red-light camera approach, per year. The City currently has nine red-light camera approaches: Beverly Drive and Wilshire, northbound; Olympic and Doheny, east and westbound; Olympic and Roxbury, westbound; Olympic and Spalding, eastbound; Sunset and Hillcrest, east and westbound; Wilshire and Whittier, east and westbound. Rosen said the introduction of these red-light cameras had significantly decreased motorists running red lights. For the month of Oct. 2008 at Olympic and Doheny, there were 329 violations. At the same intersection for Oct. 2010, there were only 175 violations, Rosen said, “a 47 percent reduction in

The Wilshire/Rodeo station advisory group was presented with a number of different station portal options. Interim Planning Commissioner Noah Furie said while there was not a majority consensus in the 10person group and some committee members inquired if they had looked into other potential station portals. “The option that got the most support was the full portal at the ACE gallery location with a half portal on Beverly Drive next to the Bank of America Building,” Furie said. “At this point, they wanted our input and wanted to know what we

violations”. During the same study period, the intersection of Wilshire and Whittier recorded 1,067 violations in Oct. 2008. In Oct. 2010, there were 728 violations, a 32 percent reduction, Rosen said. “We find over time the public starts to know where the cameras are and the public starts to change its driving behavior, and that’s what we’re looking for and the number of citations goes down,” Rosen said. “We know people are running the red lights less frequently and citations go down and

safety goes up.” The Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners unanimously voted 5-0 on June 7 to end LA’s 32 red-light camera intersections when its contract with American Traffic Solutions on July 31. The commission cited its program runs at a deficit and there is lack of clarity about how tickets can be enforced when the driver of a vehicle is not the registered owner. The future of L.A.’s redlight camera program is still being debated by the L.A. City Council.

From the Publisher CLIF SMITH WHY WON’T THE COUNCIL FIGHT? Tuesday’s City Council study session witnessed a remarkable event: Every element of the community of Beverly Hills spoke with one voice and one purpose—no subway tunnel under our high school. It was a simple, clear, direct and unambiguous message. The session saw traditional opponents band together to ask, demand, plead, insist, and advocate one course of action for our City Council. Take action! Tell the world that, “The City of Beverly Hills will not permit or tolerate a tunnel under our only high school.” Everyone knows this tunnel is completely the result of campaign contributions to Los Angeles and regional elected officials to support intensified development in Century City. The MTA itself acknowledges that every single criterion used by professional staff to evaluate tunnel routes and station locations supports avoiding the high school. Yet they persist. This debate involves moving a station one block. That’s it. One block. The original long-planned station on Santa Monica Boulevard — the one supported by the City of Beverly Hills officially since 2007–avoids the high school. The 2009 surprise “bait and switch” (as termed by Councilman John Mirisch) Constellation and Avenue of the Stars location requires tunneling under Beverly Hills High School. That route destroys the future of our only high school campus. The Courier this week prints a simple diagram showing why. So, who in our City rejects taking action to oppose this travesty? So far, it’s been Mayor Barry Brucker, Vice Mayor Willie Brien and Councilmember Julian Gold. Why? It is clear the refusal-to-fight comes from Brien. A brilliant physician but with a doctor’s stubborn rejection of opposing viewpoints, he simply does not believe the high school is in jeopardy and wants to please the “regional interests” of the MTA. What city does he serve? What interests does Beverly Hills have in the devastating location? Makes no sense. Defies evidence. Defies his own community. The dots don’t connect; but there we have it. Gold parrots Brien so there is no split there. (Like on other issues, Gold makes the “delay, delay, delay” motion backed by Brien and Brucker, frustrating Mirisch and Bosse, and the entire City. A common political ploy, “delay” and “study it to death” are the ways you kill something in politics without actually voting “no.” Gold seems to be the designated motion-maker for delaying tactics.) Only Brucker can be looked to for a burst of sanity to join stalwarts Mirisch and Bosse to bring the City into the fight. At least he seems to have figured out that he (and we) are being played. MTA, helped by Brien and Gold, and so far Brucker, are for delay, delay, delay. Brucker may finally have had it. We hope so. Brucker is working hard to follow-up on his Baltimore conversation with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to convince him to get MTA to avoid our high school. If Villaraigosa holds that meeting, Brucker will be able to state that this City is united against a tunnel under our high school. He and MTA know that our school board has assembled a mountain of data and a world class team of lawyers, experts and lobbyists to fight this. Brucker will truthfully be able to state that Beverly Hills will not acquiesce in a tunnel under our high school, period. If sanity does not prevail, we expect Brucker to join Mirisch and Bosse and the school board to defend our school. We truly wish him success. Our school board, led heroically by President Lisa Korbatov and Vice President Brian Goldberg, are fighting. They have done the work our City Council should have done. If Brucker succeeds, his success will be built on the foundation laid by the school board. We don’t care who gets credit, we just want the right outcome. If Brucker does not succeed, MTA will face an enraged City. The school board is arming for the coming court battle. However, it is the City Council that controls easements, surface rights, staging areas that MTA needs, not the school board. Why the council forces our school board to wage this war by itself is unfortunate, but if it comes to a fight, better late than never. Our community is united as never before—residents, apartment owners, businesses, the entire school community, renters, homeowner organizations–all speak with one voice and spoke Tuesday. Century City will do just fine with its station on Santa Monica Boulevard one block from where developers now want it. We cannot do without our high school and we will not. We wish Mayor Brucker all the best in his efforts. At least he knows he has his entire City behind him and we are ready to fight.

IN FLANDERS FIELDS Long, long ago when I was in the eighth grade at Shaw Junior High in Philadelphia, my teacher sent me to the blackboard to print the words of John McCrae’s World War I poem: In Flanders Fields. In retrospect I guess it was because I was among the more artistically gifted of the 48 student class. We had studied WWI and the poem and teacher chose to have it visible in class for an extended time. She gave me a pack of colored chalk and I printed and illustrated: • In Flanders Field the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row, • That mark our graves and in the sky, • The larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amid the guns below. I stood and drew a field of crosses and a blue sky above with birds flying. I have never forgotten the deep impression it made upon me, as I stood, the colored chalk crumbling in my fingers, and asked myself: “Why did those soldiers have to die?” In the Los Angeles Times a few days ago I was struck by a four-column colored picture of a flagdraped coffin on a gurney. Behind it stood a small crowd and a decorated soldier, and next to it a

LETTERS May I thank Councilwoman Lili Bosse, Clif Smith and others who have the foresight and wisdom to oppose the Roxbury Park remodeling project as it is now proposed. They see the project for what it truly is: a costly venture with limited benefits to our residents. I think Mayor Brucker is convinced that Beverly Hills should have a larger community center since other cities of similar size have them. What he fails to take into account is that ours is a very unique City with its very own unique needs. Although the project may sound appealing in theory because it will add amenities to the park, the projected benefits are illusory and would in great part benefit outside residents rather than ours while at the same time adding increased liability, costs and traffic to the City. Adding catering facilities, a gymnasium with teen facilities, and a larger senior citizen center to the park sounds appealing in theory. In actuality, these amenities are not among the needs of Beverly Hills. Their building and future maintenance will be extremely expensive and fiscally irresponsible, and not improve the quality of living for our citizens. Barry Brucker is an excellent, hard working mayor with only the best intentions for the City. However when it comes to the

woman holding a small American flag, weeping, and leaning against her husband. The headline read: “Tribute to a Soldier.” Below were two photos of a hearse and a crowd of flag-waving mourners. The legend under the top picture read: Gary Fishbeck, right, his wife, Anna Gomez and family members gather around the casket of his son, Army Spc. Christopher Brook Fishbeck ….Fishbeck, 24, and four others were killed in action in Iraq on June 6.” I thought back to Memorial Day at the military cemetery in Westwood with its endless rows of graves with new little flags next to them, and pictures of Vice-President Joe Biden laying a wreath at Arlington Cemetery, and on and on even across the seas where some American soldiers lie buried. This superannuated kid could not help repeating the question I asked 79 years ago: “Why did those soldiers have to die?” and adding: “Is there no other way for people to settle differences among themselves than by sacrificing their children? There has to be or we shall end up blowing this beautiful planet to smithereens!” And I breathed a deep sigh.

Roxbury Park plan, I believe his mind is made up and no arguments, however sound, will dissuade him. A few of my thoughts on the subject follow: (1) The parking spaces for the apartment buildings, duplexes and single family residences on Olympic, Roxbury and nearby surrounding streets are in extremely short supply with the situation only getting worse. (2) This project would only cause greater hardship for Beverly Hills residents, especially those living near the park. (3) More adult occupants per unit and families with children occupy the apartments for economic reasons and to take advantage of the excellent BH schools and nearby amenities. (4) Parking for these families is a growing “Kafkaesque” nightmare that would worsen if this project goes forward. (5) These homeowners and apartment dwellers are citizens who help support restaurants and businesses that help keep Beverly Hills alive and vibrant. They deserve a better fate. (6) We can provide more services for our seniors by creatively reconfiguring existing facilities at a greatly diminished cost. Let’s set a standard of urban sensitivity, fiscal responsibility, and common sense for ourselves, our children, and future generations. Earl Goldstein, D.D.S.

****** Lili Bosse deserves the community’s appreciation for her expose of the shocking details underlying the Roxbury Park proposal. Thanks to her initiative and diligence, the true picture of this project is being uncovered. This is only half the story, as thanks to her efforts we know have a concrete example of how projects are misrepresented and fraudulently presented. Now we have evidence that City staff reports must not be unquestioned, unverified, and blanketedly accepted. I wonder how many other projects and developments would have been uncovered if only we had someone at the time who would have scrutinized, researched, and analyzed them with Lili's diligence. No matter, because now we have someone—and for that our community is grateful! Whereas everyone on the City Council brings their own strengths, I hope the entire council will embrace and take on Lili’s example. Christine Skirmuntt Ford

****** Lili Bosse and her voice of reason is a breath of fresh air and common sense on the City Council. Her earlier experience on the Planning Commission gives her position on this matter much credibility. Keep up the good work, Lili. Ruth Merritt
