By Tricia Arend At a hearing on Wednesday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ann Jones denied the City of Beverly Hill’s request for a final judgment on Measure 2P or a temporary restraining order against Measure 2P which would have temporarily prevented the City from implementing 2P. A two-hour free parking initiative, Measure 2P passed by 68 percent when put on the ballot for City voters in last month’s election. “The City wanted to end this matter and this case once and for all by having Judge Jones issue judgment, however, Judge Jones had different ideas,” said Steve Reyes of Kaufman Legal

By Marla Schevker Courier Exclusive Fifteen-year Beverly Hills resident Damien Bean announced to The Courier Thursday he intends to run in the 2011 Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education election. Bean has two daughters, Celeste an 11th grader at Beverly High and Alyssa a 6th grader at El Rodeo. Bean’s interest in the BHUSD began a few years ago when his daughter Celeste decided to go to Beverly High after attending Page private school for elementary and middle school. “I attended a budget presentation a few years ago and saw what I thought was some less than good advice to a previous board,” Bean said. “That’s when I started paying a lot of attention and becoming engaged.” In his professional career, Bean owns his own management consulting firm. He has spent his

Retirement Plan Discussed The Board of Education voted 3-2, with Boardmembers Myra Lurie and Jake Manaster dissenting, to hire Keenan Financial Services to analyze the benefits of implementing a Supplemental Early Retirement Plan (SERP) Tuesday. The district attempted this plan last year and lost money. However if more
than half of the teachers that retire do not need to be replaced, the district stands to make about $1.5 million over five years. Those who qualify for early retirement must be 55 years of age or older and have a minimum of five years full-time employment as a certificated (see ‘SERP,’ page 15)

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING The Council of the City of Beverly Hills, at its adjourned regular meeting to be held on Thursday, April 21, 2011, at 7:00 p.m., in the Council Chambers of the City Hall, 455 N. Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills, California, will hold a public hearing to consider adoption of: A RESOLUTION OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BEVERLY HILLS AMENDING THE COMPREHENSIVE SCHEDULE OF TAXES, FEES & SERVICE CHARGES FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2011/2012. The proposed resolution will increase the taxes, fees, and service charges that are charged to the public for the various activities and services as set forth in the schedule for fiscal year 2011/2012. The majority of the fees and charges would be increased by 0.7% based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for November 2010 to reflect the increase in the City’s costs. In some cases, the fees were adjusted to reflect a change in service level, more equitable distribution of costs, or to obtain full-cost recovery, rather than by the CPI. The fees would become effective on July 1, 2011. Copies of the proposed Resolution and the Fee Study Report are available for review or purchase in the Office of the City Clerk, Room 290, 455 N. Rexford Drive, and in the Finance Department, 3rd Floor, 455 N. Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills, California. Any interested person may attend the meeting and be heard. Written comments may also be submitted and should be addressed to the City Council, c/o City Clerk, 455 N. Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills, California, 90210. The comments should be received prior to the hearing date. If you need more information, please contact Carolyn Johnson at (310) 285-2459. Please note that if you challenge the Council's action in regard to this matter in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the City, either at or prior to the public hearing. BYRON POPE, CMC, City Clerk
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING DATE: TIME: LOCATION:
April 28, 2011 1:30 PM, or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard Commission Meeting Room 280A Beverly Hills City Hall 455 North Rexford Drive Beverly Hills. CA 90210
The Planning Commission of the City of Beverly Hills, at its REGULAR meeting on Thursday, April 28, 2011, will hold a public hearing beginning at 1:30 PM, or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, to consider: Requests for: 1) A Variance to allow a bridge structure to allow access to the front door of the house which is over three feet in height within the required front yard setback; 2) A Second Unit Permit to allow a detached second dwelling unit/accessory structure; and 3) A Hillside R-1 Permit to allow the construction of a detached three-car garage (second accessory structure) within the front and side setback areas on the property located at 1166 Summit Drive. This project has been assessed in accordance with the authority and criteria contained in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the State CEQA Guidelines, and the environmental regulations of the City. Staff has determined that the proposed project qualifies for a Class 3(e) Categorical Exemption under the authority provided by the CEQA Guidelines and no significant environmental impacts are anticipated. Any interested person may attend the meeting and be heard or present written comments to the Commission. If you challenge the Commission's action in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the City, either at or prior to the public hearing. If there are any questions regarding this notice, please contact Donna Jerex in the Community Development Department at (310) 285-1138. Copies of the applications, plans, and Categorical Exemption are on file in the Community Development Department and can be reviewed by any interested person at the City Hall located at 455 North Rexford , Beverly Hills, California 90210. Approved as to form: David Reyes, Principal Planner
NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY of RECIRCULATED DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT The City of Beverly Hills has prepared a Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a proposed new 44 unit condominium building (Residences at Saks Fifth Avenue). The EIR was previously circulated for public review between November 15, 2010 and January 18, 2011, and is being recirculated as a result of changes to the levels of significance associated with several impact areas. The following impact areas were changed from Class III (less than significant) impact to Class II (significant but mitigable) impacts: • Aesthetics • Land Use and Planning The abovementioned changes to impact areas, as well as other edits and clarifications, are shown in strikeout/underline within the text of the Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report. The project site is located between the 100 blocks of South Camden and South Peck Drives, immediately south of the commercially-zoned properties fronting on Wilshire Boulevard. The project site is identified as 125 South Camden Drive, and occupies six lots totaling approximately 1.12 acres in size. The proposed project would result in the demolition of the existing surface parking lot located behind the Barney’s retail store, and permanent vacation of a portion of the north-south alley that runs through the center of the project site. The new structure would be a six-story, 44-unit residential building with a two-level subterranean parking garage with 127 parking spaces. The net floor area of the proposed building would be 118,840 square feet, which results in a net floor-to-area ratio (FAR) of 2.44 to 1. The project includes approximately 16,220 square feet of communal and private open space that would be provided in the form of courtyards and terraces. The proposed project would be 66-feet and six stories in height at the northern portion of the site, adjacent to the 85-foot tall Barney’s retail building to the north of the project site. The project would then step down to 55-feet and five stories in the middle portion of the site. In the southern portion of the site, the project would step down to 45-feet and four stories, adjacent to the existing multi-family residential development to the south. Of the six lots proposed for development under the project, the four northern lots are currently zoned R-4-P (Residential Parking Zone) and the two southern lots are zoned R-4X2 (Multiple Residential Zone). The R-4-P zone allows for either multi-family residential development or commercial parking facilities (but not both within the same project), and the R4X2 zone allows for multi-family residential development. The project consists strictly of multi-family residential development, and is therefore compatible with the permitted uses for the project site. The height limit for the two northern lots is 55-feet or five stories, and the height limit for the four southern lots is 45-feet or four stories. Proposed development on the two southern lots complies with the established height limits, but development on the four northern lots exceeds the established height limits. Approval of the project requires approval of: a Vesting Tentative Map, a Zone Change to amend the Municipal Code to establish a new overlay zone (which allows for increased height and building length), the Multiple Residential Planned Development Overlay Zone (MR-PD); a General Plan Amendment to reflect the proposed overlay zone and to exceed the 60-foot height limit identified in the General Plan; a Development Plan Review to construct the project; and an amendment to the City’s Streets Master Plan to allow for an alley vacation for a portion of a public alley that bisects the project site. The Draft EIR analyzes the following potentially significant environmental effects of the project: • Aesthetics • Land Use and Planning • Air Quality • Noise • Greenhouse Gas Emissions • Transportation and Circulation PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT ON THE RECIRCULATED DRAFT EIR The Recirculated Draft EIR is being circulated for a 25-day public review period, from April 15, 2011 to May 9, 2011. During the public review period, written comments concerning the adequacy of the document may be submitted by any interested person and/or affected agency. Following the public review period, written responses will be prepared for inclusion in the Final EIR. Comments should be directed to (Emails will also be accepted at: email@example.com): City of Beverly Hills Department of Community Development 455 North Rexford Drive Beverly Hills, California 90210 ATTN: Ryan Gohlich, Associate Planner Public Review: Copies of the Recirculated Draft EIR are available for public review at the following locations: Beverly Hills Public Library 444 North Rexford Drive City of Beverly Hills City Hall Beverly Hills, CA 90210 Planning Division and Office of the City Clerk 455 North Rexford Drive Beverly Hills, CA 90210 The City’s website: www.BeverlyHills.org The case file on this project, which includes the plans and applications, is available for public review at the Community Development Department, 455 North Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

By Brenton Garen Only one out of three wanted Rolling 30’s Harlem Crips members remain at large following the arrest of 27year-old suspect Tyree Jackson. The BHPD’s surveillance unit last Friday arrested Jackson, one of three gang members responsible for “knock knock” burglaries in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. The trio used a common method of operation: knocking on the front door of
a residence, if there is no answer, two of them would ransack the home looking for jewelry, money and guns. BHPD had Jackson under vehicle surveillance in South Los Angeles the morning of his arrest. Once Jackson exited his vehicle at a convenience store in the area of 115th Street and South Vermont Avenue, officers took the opportunity to attempt to safely place him into custody.

as early as fall 2012. “There’s only one high school in the world known by name internationally and it’s Beverly Hills High School,” Beverly Hills Education Foundation Chair Jonathan Prince said. “We’ve always thought as a district there is value to that name but we weren’t able to monetize it.” Due to the approval of a trademark custodial agreement between the BHUSD and the BHEF, it is not the BHEF’s responsibility to find the best deal possible for the district at the highest quality. “The beauty is because we’re a nonprofit and (making money for the district is) our job, any contract we enter, the money flows straight through us back to the district,” Prince said. Prince stressed two important aspects of the custodial agreement between the two. First, the money earned on the Beverly Hills High School brand will be going to the district as a whole, not just the high school. Second, the high school has it’s own t-shirts and other apparel and any deal struck by the BHEF will in no way affect school made apparel, Prince said. Prince said discussions with Cherokee began at a mutual friend’s BBQ. Prince met Cherokee CEO Henry Stupp

had become film stars and moved to Hollywood. Arthur Marx served in the Coast Guard during World War II and began his career at MGM. Marx began his Hollywood career working at MGM. While screenwriting there, he authored his first novel The Ordeal Of Willie Brown, which was loosely based on his own experiences as a nationally ranked junior tennis player. In 1954, he wrote Life With Groucho, the first of several books that dealt with his father and their sometimestempestuous relationship. By the early '60s, Marx teamed with his father’s former writer Robert Fisher. The duo then collaborated for more than 30 years, turning out several Bob Hope films, including Eight On The Lam, A Global Affair, I'll Take Sweden and Cancel My Reservation. They also wrote episodes for numerous TV sitcoms such as McHale's Navy, My Three Sons, Petticoat Junction and The Mothers-in-Law. The duo later did The Impossible Years, which ran on Broadway for three years and then became a David Niven movie. Marx and Fisher continued in TV throughout the '70s, writing episodes for three Norman Lear comedies All In The Family, The Jefand fersons, Mau- de and Love American Style and Alice. Marx’ Hollywood bios, including Goldwyn: The Man Behind The Myth, Red Skelton, The Nine Lives Of Mickey Rooney, The Secret Life Of Bob Hope and Everybody Loves Somebody
and after a conversation about mutual passions including kids and public schools, they began to discuss what became the preliminary ideas for a partnership. “When I reported back to our board, we had interest from Cherokee, what we were most thrilled by was that a company that size with that reputation, with that amount of expertise, would be coming after us,” Prince said. “It made us think we were worth something, that they were taking us seriously and for us to realize we would get a fair and good deal.” Branding dollars are an untapped source of revenue for the district. It is money that they don’t receive now and could greatly benefit from in the future. “We have nothing now and at least this helps us get something,” Board President Lisa Korbatov said. “We got to start somewhere and we have to start sooner than later.” Members of the board are ecstatic about the idea of branding and new found revenue. “I am so excited about the possibilities that this new partnership which BHEF represents for our students and District,” Board Vice President Brian Goldberg said. “We are very fortunate to have so many creative people who volunteer their time and talents to make our schools so special.”
Sometime (Especially Himself about Martin and Lewis. The play Groucho: A Life in Revue, which was directed by Marx, received two New York Outer Critics Circle awards.

Beverly High’s Robotics Team Competes At L.A. Regional Robotics Competition By Dupé Aleru Beverly High and 63 other high school Robotics teams competed in the L.A. Regional FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition at the Long Beach Convention Center, recently. In this year’s “Logo Motion” game, competing teams were required to design three robots each, on a flat, 8.2-by16.5 meter (27-by-54-foot) field. As if that wasn’t enough, teams were then required to hang plastic shapes (triangles, circles and squares), on their scoring grid, in a two-minute-and-15second match, in order to earn points. In addition, the robots can also deploy mini-bots that would climb vertical poles for a chance to earn additional points.
With the help of engineers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, aerospace and other higher education companies, students were given six weeks to design, build, program and test their robots to meet the season's engineering challenge. The BHHS team was the only one to win three honors—regional finalist, Industrial Safety, and the Innovation in Control awards. Beverly students did a wonderful job representing its team, school and the community. A high interest in the team was generated when the team assembled a robot in one day for the City Honors School from Inglewood—which Beverly now adopted and will act as mentors for them in the future.

The blonde heiress talks to The Courier
about her classic yet fresh Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry Collection. The entire line debuted Thursday, April 14 at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills.
BHC: What inspired you with your 2011 collection? IT: The new line evokes passion, fanciful feminism, nostalgia for modernity and a woman’s power of persuasion through fashion; all inherent trends currently guiding the fashion and luxury worlds.
Ivanka Trump Jewelry Collection Available at Saks Fifth Avenue 9600 Wilshire Blvd. Beverly Hills
BHC: What are some of your favorite pieces? IT: From my collection I would have to choose my Signature Medium Oval Earrings. They make a fabulous statement and are so versatile that they can easily go from day to night! BHC: Who is the ideal woman, wearing Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry Collection? IT: I wanted to design jewelry for the modern, sophisticated, self-purchasing woman of today. I wanted women to see it and be able to buy themselves an important piece of jewelry right away-without asking “him.” I realized the luxury fine jewelry market was missing a fresh, young design approach. That’s where my jewelry lines vision of “Rock Tradition” plays a vital role-it’s a modern twist on jewelry’s most important classic. My audience includes women of all ages.

noise curfew was too early. Southwest Homeowners Association President Ken Goldman said the Southwest Homeowners Association supports the idea of a permit process. Goldman said they do not have a problem with the occasional party in the neighborhood, but a problem with frequency. “It seems to me if you have a party with more than 30 people and have amplified sound then get a permit from the City,” Goldman said. “At least at that point you know okay that address this is their fifth party this month with amplified sound.” Senior Planner of Community Development, Michele McGrath, said a problem with implementing a permit process is the City will need to hire an ad-
BEVERLY HILLS ditional employee to handle the permits and the process of defining what parties will need permits can become difficult. Another problem with a permit process is the issue of insurance. “If the City is issuing a permit, the City would expect the party host would have insurance that would indemnify the City so the City is not liable if there are problems,”McGrath said. Not everyone has problems with amplified noise in their neighborhoods. Resident Nazy Zarabi said her and her husband invite their neighbors to the parties they throw and have never had a complaint. “I have to say that it has brought our neighborhood together,” Zarabi said. There are two additional hearings that will take place on May 9 at 7 p.m. and May 24 at 9:15 a.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
MEASURE 2P (Continued from page 1)
Group APC, who is representing 2P proponent Marcia Caden. “The voters spoke very clearly on election day that they wanted two hour free parking in the city of Beverly Hills,” he stated, adding that the discussion at Wednesday’s hearing was “important because there is hope that the wishes of the voter will be respected.” Alleging it would increase a Parking Enterprise Fund “deficit”, the City Council fought the measure and attempted to ban it from the March ballot by suing in Superior Court. Judge Jones previously ruled the measure as unconstitutional as an improper imposition on administrative matters on Jan. 4. Three days later, on Jan. 7, the California Court of Appeal granted a temporary stay of the decision, blocking the decision and allowing for the presence of the measure on the ballot. The Court of Appeal returned the lawsuit to the Superior Court in March. This week, Judge Jones set a hearing date for April 29 to revisit the issue after additional briefing. The decision will be made at this expedited hearing as to whether Measure 2P will be treated as valid in the interim pending a final hearing, said City Attorney Larry Wiener. “It’s good that we’ve gotten an expedited schedule to hopefully get direction from the trial court as to whether 2P should be implemented pending a final decision,” Weiner said. “The question is what do we do while we’re waiting.” Last week, City Council discussed the options available under Measure 2P, including eliminating flat fees after 6 p.m. and leasing or selling structures to private operators before appointing a subcommittee to address the questions 2P raises. The subcommittee is scheduled to report back to the City Council at the next Council meeting, to be held on April 21, Wiener said.

ARTS & E N T E RTA I N M E N T Heifetz Documentary Premieres Tomorrow At Colburn The world premiere of Jascha Heifetz: God’s Fiddler, a feature-length documentary on the world’s most renowned violinist will screen at 5 p.m., tomorrow in The Colburn School’s Zipper Hal, 200 South
Grand Ave. The film tells the story of a legendary, but mysterious, artist for whom only perfection would do; a wunderkind who defined the standard in violin playing for nearly a century.
When his Lloyd Wrightdesigned teaching studio was slated for destruction after Heifetz’s death, it was moved piece by piece to its new home at The Colburn School, where it is the teaching site of master violin faculty Robert Lipsett, who studied with Heifetz as a young man. Portions of the film were shot at the studio last summer 2010. Tickets are $10. For more information, call 213-621-1050 or visit www.colburnschool.edu.

cent, at 13 percent of the K-12 enrollment. They maintain a special education teacher to student staffing ratio of 1:17, while the state average is 1:28. This costs the district approximately $910,000 for certificated staff and $150,000 for clas-
sified staff to operate at minimum staffing level. By upping the class size ratio to 1:22, the district can potentially save $434,705, based on the districtâ€™s average teacher salary of $90,941. This would still be less than the state average. FCMAT also recommended the district polices and procedures regarding instructional
aides. The district currently has a multitude of aides that need to be monitored and directed. This will assist the aides in giving better and more organized assistance to those students who need them. Though the FCMAT report offered over $1 million in cuts, the board as a whole has not seemed interested in cutting

This year’s awards ceremony will be hosted by Christine Devine, Emmy-winning KTTV news anchor and longtime advocate for foster youth and adoption. An estimated 57 million Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental illness.

After completing the film, their book, Either You’re In Or You’re In the Way, followed. telling how—without a dime or a single contact in Hollywood—they managed to write, produce, act in, and direct a feature film starring Ed Harris with a cast and crew, and garner 11 Oscars and 26 nominations. The award will be presented by Harris. For more information and tickets, visit 310-7515420, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.erasingthestigma.org.

Jackson ran from the officers who gave chase and apprehended him without further incident. No officers were injured during the chase or arrest; Jackson suffered only very minor injuries.

This yearâ€™s event included paper shredding for the first time, she said. Individuals had the opportunity to bring confidential documents to be shredded safety and securely. The event yielded 2,075 pounds of shredded paper, Kosterman stated. Earthquake safety was also included at the Earth Day event, and a Quake Cottage, a mobile earthquake simulator, shook up visitors by allowing them to experience an 8.0 earthquake. Twenty-eight vendors participated in the event, including Better Bike Beverly Hills, California Recycles, Ecological ART and Tree People. Crown Disposal, the Cityâ€™s solid waste contractor, handed out more than 8,400 pounds of free compost, or waste from the food waste programs at local restaurants. Park Rangers brought snakes and turtles from the Greystone estate to engage children. Electronic waste was collected and inspected for reusable parts.

court papers. Betson was fired in January 2009 amid accusations by the company that she stole money, an allegation she denied. Defense attorney Glenn Briggs told jurors during final arguments last week that store video from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day 2008 showed no customers present during three transactions during which Betson claimed she was processing refunds. He said that in one of those cases, she put the refund slip in her back pocket. Betson, 48, said outside the courtroom that she was pleased with the verdict. She said she has been unable to get another job because prospective employers ask her why she was fired and do not offer her employment when she tells them she was accused of taking money from Rite Aid. Briggs denied Betson was defamed when her bosses told her she was fired for stealing. Betson, not her supervisors, repeated that accusation against her to others, Briggs said. —City News Service

The panel also declined to award her any damages for lost past and future wages. Betson worked as a shift supervisor at the Beverly Hills store on Canon Drive in Feb. 2008 when she fell on the job and suffered multiple injuries, including torn ligaments in one knee, according to her court papers. She says her bosses were unhappy that she took medical leave. When she returned after 3 1/2 months, they accused her of faking her injuries and called her “kangaroo” and “too slow of a worker,” according to her
Rite Aid must pay $500,000 in damages to a former longtime Beverly Hills employee who claims she was harassed after suffering an on-thejob injury, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury determined Monday. Doreen Betson sued the drug store chain in Dec. 2009, claiming workplace disability harassment, failure to reasonably accommodate her because of her disability and defamation. The jury agreed with her on the harassment claim, but not on the others.

many in the district’s effort to cut the budget while maintaining resources for the K-12 programs. The board voted to eliminate one full-time adult education office manager position, one adult education senior clerk position, one adult education secretary and one adult education clerk and reduce one adult education position and one purchasing assistant position from full-time to parttime. The district will still offer English as a Second Language (ESL) classes through the now minimal adult education program. The teachers for the ESL classes are credentialed and would have had to be notified by March 15. The teachers are paid at an adult school certificated rate, which is less than certificated union members are paid, and together will cost approximately $110,000 for salary and benefits for 28 hours a week of work. The ESL program costs the district approximately $135,000, $60,000 of which is paid for through a federal grant. ESL students currently pay a $20 registration fee. BHUSD ESL teacher Esther Caporale said ESL classes help those who aren’t fluent in English to help their children, boost their self esteem and succeed in business. The ESL classes used to be self-sustaining and did not encroach on the general fund. “Although I entirely understand that due to budget cuts (the board) needs and wants to close adult education in general, I am here on behalf of our ESL students to ask for help to keep the ESL classes open,” Caporale said at the board meeting Tuesday. “Removing ESL would impact us in many significant ways. We generate international goodwill.” Caporale said the program caters to those who speak a

multitude of languages including Turkish, Swedish and Hindi and have all sorts of educational backgrounds. Many students have BAs or even PhDs in their old country and includes doctors, lawyers and consulate generals. “I was surprised to see how many professionals are here with advanced degrees taking
these classes,” Boardmember Myra Lurie said. “I think it speaks well for our program but indicates there may be an affordability level that’s higher than the $20 being charged.” Through a rough calculation by Boardmember Jake Manaster, the district would need to charge as much as
$535 per person per session to break even. A day ESL program will continue to exist in the BHUSD. Board Vice President Brian Goldberg said he believed ESL to be an important program, but not worthy of spending general fund money in a time of financial crisis.
April 15, 2011 | Page 21 “I don’t like spending general fund money that could be used for K-12 education, for adults,” Goldberg said. “If I don’t have to make that choice, I think adult education is an important community services the district provides. We’re offering the program at a loss, taking money out of the classroom. I think it’s wrong.”

Cancer and Leo people are your enthusiastic supporters. ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). It’s no secret you’re a giver. You’ll bring around someone else’s good fortune. This will ultimately be more satisfying for you than riding your own lucky streak. TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). Your dreams last night affect the start of your day. Your subconscious has had its fun, but in the morning light, it is time to push the mental “reset” button and take control of your mind and mood. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will produce the equivalent of a rabbit out of a hat. It’s a trick, the usefulness of which is questionable, but that doesn’t keep it from being a sheer delight to
your rapt audience. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Avoid a game that’s too easy for you. Your nerves will tell you whether you’re playing at the right level. And you can channel your nervous energy to give you the edge. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your energy is vibrant, though not necessarily constant. As superhuman as you feel, you still require downtime to recharge. Relax and get grounded, and you’ll stay strong. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be in a cautious mood, looking out for those more reckless. Someone has to! Your kindness will not be directly repaid, but doing the right thing is its
own reward. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll work on your core–if not your abs then your emotional core. You are loved and valued. By focusing and feeling this at a very deep level, you’ll attract more of the same. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be in a spunky mood, and be less guarded with what you do and say. Because of this, you have the potential to brighten someone’s day or ruin it. Of course, you’ll choose the first option. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Unbeknownst to you, you are drawing someone in with the intensity of your presence, your sparkling eyes and the gusto you add to the conversation. Be careful, heartbreaker! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though open and curious, you are not easily won. Furthermore, it takes a compelling argument to separate you from your money. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You choose what you want because you think it would be fun to have it. You will be careful not to choose out of insecurity or need and will not respond to pressure. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Get back into your hobby. Loved ones may at first be jealous of the time you spend doing “your thing,” but they will ultimately be happy for you, as doing what you enjoy makes you a more loving person.

A Look At The Sacramento Scene
By Steve Frank Did you know that Gov. Jerry Brown claims to own three guns? Democrat Speaker of the Assembly John Perez owns a gun. Sen. Dianne Feinstein usually carries her gun with her. The State Assembly just ordered all its security detail to carry a gun. Yet, at the same time elected officials, some of whom have armed bodyguards—for instance, all the constitutional officers of California have armed CHP officers assigned to them— do not believe you should be allowed to carry a gun, and certainly not be allowed to “open carry.” Current California law gives the county sheriff the right to set the criteria by which an honest citizen may carry a gun. In Orange County, Sheriff Hutchens has nullified or ended dozens of carry permits. California is a “May Issue” state; the decision to grant a CCW (carry a concealed weapon) permit being granted (or refused) at the discretion of the county sheriff or police chief. Some sheriffs/chiefs issue on a reasonable basis, others can be next to impossible to persuade. Many of them operate illegal policies that are ripe for a challenge. In most counties you need a psychology examination, a background check, gun safety courses, special exams and more. Then you get to pay a hefty fee each year for the constitutional right to protect yourself. I do not need to note, but will, that criminals pass no test, pay no fees and use their weapon for harming honest citizens. Special interests and most Democrat-elected officials prefer good citizens walk the streets of our state totally unprotected from criminals. Current California law says if you carry a concealed weapon you need a permit. But, if you have a holster and show your weapon openly, it is legal under the law. A group of gun enthusiasts who want to be safe have taken to wearing their gun in public places and those they do not, by signage, prohibit it. They have done this in Los Angeles, Alameda and Sacramento counties. While the police were called, to arrest these supporters of the Constitution, state law prohibited the arrest or harassment of those willing to protect themselves. Altadena Assemblyman Anthony Portantino has introduced legislation (AB 144) that would ban most people from open carrying in California. This bill would stop folks from exercising their constitutional rights to openly carry a weapon. He does not believe in concealed weapons permits, even though very few are issued. He refuses to note that his colleagues carry guns, with or without a permit. Portantino refuses to admit celebrities, athletes and folks who want to protect their families carry a concealed weapon. I attend lots of political meetings. Several older ladies carry guns in their purses, and know how to use them. They refuse to be a victim of criminals and government efforts to make them victims. Why concealed and/or open carry? When a shooting occurs in a restaurant, in front of a grocery store or in a school board meeting, do you want the criminals to be comfortable in knowing that thanks to government, the attendees are totally unprotected? I had been a guest on Bill Maher’s former Politically Incorrect. One issue was should people carry guns in churches. My response was simple, criminals do not care it is a church, if they want to shoot one person or many people. Because I attend a church or Temple, should I be fodder for a nut with a gun? In short, I said, I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by six. Do you want to protect yourself or be a victim? Remember this, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. This is your life, choose protection or allow yourself to be a victim. Your choice, not government’s. Stephen Frank, a political and public policy activist since 1960, is the publisher of the California Political News and Views (www.capoliticalnews.com).
LETTERS I was dismayed at seeing in The Courier last week that the City Council is not only going to appear on an upcoming episode of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills but had approved
use of our BH shield in this unbelievably tacky show. Former Mayor Delshad had even given a proclamation from the City in chambers which was filmed to be used on this program. We have spent a lot of time
Rabbi Jacob Pressman MITZVAH: THE GOOD DEED One of the best things about growing old –yes, there are some!–is that sometimes it brings out the best in other people. There used to be a cliché about what Boy Scouts of America were supposed to do–like help an old lady cross the street. Now sometimes such aid was very welcome; and sometimes it was summarily rejected, as when a 50year-old woman would say, “Let go of my arm. I’m in a hurry. I am not an old lady!” The fact is that the training in being of assistance to others was a very good thing. After a lifetime of being strong, in charge, of helping others I am now learning what it usually, but not always, means to be appreciative of assistance. Now that I am in the 90s, I have noticed that an astonishing cross section of people is solicitous of my needs. Yes, I have actually had perfect strangers ask to take my arm and help me cross the street, step out of an automobile, step up from the street to the curb. Often I am burdened with some heavy package and am delighted when someone offers: “Here, let me carry that for you.” I let them. When I am in someone else’s automobile, I appreciate hearing: “May I help you fasten your seat belt?” In the passenger’s seat it is often very difficult to buckle up, because it needs bending back your left hand to do so. So I cheerfully let someone do it for me, and am not only secure and obeying the law
but I often get a hug from the good person, male of female, who is straining to catch the lock. Sometimes I find myself in a line of people waiting to perform some routine act. Often one or more persons ahead of me will turn and say, “Get in front of me.” I do. Because in order to perambulate safely I may use a cane or a walker, invariably someone will offer me help, fold up my walker and help me get seated at a restaurant or in and out of a car. They then graciously stow my cane or walker in the trunk of the car, or the corner of some public place. What I have discovered is that these good Samaritans feel good about what they are doing. One of the meanings of the ubiquitous Hebrew word Mitzvah is the “good deed” when we are kind and decent to a fellow human being. Our tradition teaches that we should try to perform a hundred Mitzvahs a day. I hope the Boy and Girl Scouts and other youth groups are being taught the importance of the Good Deed, because I, for one, am the grateful beneficiary of the kindness of others. They put the gold into the Golden Years. So, my faithful reader, should you ever have the impulse to assist me in coping with growing old, do not repress it. I am not embarrassed to take your help. I love it – and you!
and money developing our image and this show is not what we are about. Have any of you seen it? This is a group of . . . driven women who bear no resemblance to anyone I would choose to associate with. These women don’t live in Beverly Hills (sounds like attempting to give the key to the City to the Kardashians). Please don’t allow this to happen as it will embarrass all of us. Robbie Anderson ****** I would like to thank the Beverly Hills Fire Department for stepping up and bailing out the City. With their generosity, the three City furlough days, that were to take place the first Friday of April, May, and June, were able to be canceled. This means the library will remain open also. Lois Hirt ****** Last week the FCMAT (Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team) delivered a devastating analysis of the Food Services Department with Debi Deal of FCMAT admitting never having seen a district in worse
shape. Deficiencies from cash handling, record keeping and compliance with federal and state guidelines were identified. It was reported that Food Services has for some time been a drain and encroachment on the General Fund. The BHUSD has been forced to take precious resources out of our classroom and subsidize the mismanaged Food Service program. One of the recommendations embraced by Dr. Alex Cherniss, assistant superintendent of Business Services, is to hire a full-time Food Services director. As concerned parents and residents, we should say “not so fast!” Lisa Korbatov often reminds us “insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.” It is not simply enough to hire someone, we need to hire the right person. Regretfully, BHUSD has ample precedent for hiring the wrong people. Case in point, Maria Hunsaker, former director of Food Services, hired by Sup. Jeff Hubbard with the then board of Lurie, Demeter, Roston, Milan and Mishkaty. She finally
“resigned” after two filed audits. Former Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Cheryl Plotkin, hired by “our own Gwen Gross” and the board comprised of Brien, Brucker, Roston, Lurie and then promoted by Sup. McVeigh, resigned under a cloud of suspicion. And let’s not forget Karen Christiansen . . . . two guesses who hired her? Jeff Hubbard, Karen Christiansen, Maria Hunsaker, Cheryl Plotkin. . . . . We would do well to remember these names . . . . . With our past hiring history, we should heed Dr. Brian Goldberg’s advice and hire an outside consultant until such time as we get our house in order. There is no simple fix as it’s not as if we could simply hire a CPA to bring financial order to BHUSD. Part of the problem is we are hampered by the demands of a state mandated bureaucracy. We are fortunate to now have a board led by Lisa Korbatov and Dr. Goldberg, two leaders with the courage to ask the tough questions and the vision and wisdom to think outside of the box. Alma R.
