Legend Fred Hayman Honored At Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style By Tricia Arend In recognition of his vision that made Rodeo Drive the world’s most famous fashion address, former boutique owner and retail genius Fred Hayman was honored with the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award by the Rodeo Drive Committee and the City of Beverly Hills on Tuesday. Trumpets blared and white and yellow confetti - the colors of Hayman’s signature awnings colored the air as Hayman accepted a plaque on a pool table at the corner of Rodeo Drive and Dayton Way, across the street from where his chic shop Giorgio of Beverly Hills–which boasted a pool table–formerly stood. The 15th recipient of the award, Hayman, often referred to as “the father of Rodeo Drive”, envisioned Rodeo Drive and

Beverly Hills to rival other fashion meccas when he began building his store back in 1964, at a time when Rodeo Drive was nothing more than a typical street complete with a hardware shop, grocer and gas station. “In truth I never expected it,”Hayman said as he accepted his plaque at the ceremony. Producer/director Gil Cates said Tuesday Hayman's contribution to Beverly Hills is unmatched. “I can still remember a time when the numbers 90210 were nothing more than just numbers. As we can see around us today Fred's dream of turning Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills into a world class, actually the greatest, shopping district in the world has (see ‘HAYMAN,’ page 15)

School Board To Fill Vacancies Created By Retiring Teachers By Marla Schevker The Board of Education voted Tuesday to fill vacancies created by teacher cuts and retirements. The board unanimously agreed to fill the six K5 vacancies, two science teaching positions and one moderate-to-severe special education position. They also agreed to increase the hours of an instructional assistant. Although the board approved the Supplemental Early Retirement Plan for 12 BHUSD teachers, they will need to fill nine positions. Qualified teachers who were placed on the layoff list will fill the K-5 positions; all other positions will be filled by new-hires. The Board of Education decided to table the issue of replacing the Horace Mann health assistant. A health assistant is a classified employee

with no required medical knowledge or training who is assisted by the district nurse. Board Vice President Brian Goldberg suggested the position not be filled as a way to save money without a layoff. He recommended staff evaluate if the position could be filled through rotation with the other schools health assistants and assistance from the front office staff. Board member Myra Lurie suggested the health assistant take on other classified duties. Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Dawnalyn Murakawa-Leopard said the health assistant is responsible for duties including assisting in the office and reviewing immunization records. The issue of a Horace Mann health assistant has been tabled until the summer months.

The dedication ceremony was paid for by a donation to the BHEF from the Beverly Hills Basketball League

House Fire Quickly Extinguished By Brenton Garen A Beverly Hills house was heavily damaged by fire on Memorial Day, but luckily the two residents were not home at the time of the blaze. Neighbors on the 100 block of Le Doux Drive called for help after seeing smoke billowing from the single story house at 5:52 p.m. BHFD Battalion Chief Edward Snyder said all on duty fire personnel responded to the fire, which included three engine companies, a truck company, urban search and rescue

unit (USAR) and paramedics – plus an L.A. County engine company. “We don’t have a dollar estimate of the damage but three rooms of the house were heavily damaged by fire and the rest of the home was smoke damaged,” Snyder said. The two people who lived there were a man in his 80s and his caretaker, a woman in her 70s, Snyder said. “The cause of the fire is still under investigation but it appears to be electrical and accidental,” he said.

WE ARE ONE—The Beverly Hills Education Foundation presented the Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education with the proceeds of the One Campaign at the Tuesday board meeting. The BHEF donation was the largest single donation to date, totaling $621,400 and preserving the 12 teaching jobs the campaign set out to save. Bouchon Beverly Hills will be continuing to contribute to the One Campaign by donating 50 percent of proceeds from dinner from its prix fixe menu and 25 percent from lunch and brunch in all of June.

Beverly High Adds Third Year Chinese To Course By Marla Schevker In an effort to continue the education of Beverly High students taking Mandarin Chinese as their foreign language, the Board of Education voted 5-0 Tuesday to add a third year of Chinese to the course list for the 2011/2012 academic year. BHHS currently has 26 first year Chinese students and 21

second year Chinese students. Eleven students have already requested a third year. The cost of a third year would be approximately $16,000 for a teacher’s salary and $2,700 for books. The Mandarin Chinese language program was made possible for the BHUSD with support from San Marino Unified

School District which assisted the BHUSD in developing the course outline and choosing the materials. Board member Myra Lurie recommended looking at the Confucius Institute and other organizations supported by the Mainland Chinese government to find grant money to fund the program at the BHUSD.

In addition to finding coffee and taco trucks to feed the 150 guests that will be attending, Markowitz also recruited live entertainment to sing a song written specifically for the event, which will be posted on iTunes. One hundred percent of the song proceeds will be donated to the cause. Markowitz’s goal is to raise $50,000, which can cover the $20,000 cost of building a new school and the cost of multiple teacher salaries. “I have faith that we’re going to raise a lot of money for these kids,” she said.

New Entity Will Address Need For Medical Devices

CHLA/USC Announce Creation Of Center For Technology, Innovation In Pediatrics Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and the University of Southern California (USC) have announced the creation of a new Center for Technology and Innovation in Pediatrics (CTIP). “Since children differ from adults in their size, anatomy, body chemistry, and overall growth and development, there currently exists a need for novel medical devices specifically designed for them, as well as for the adaptation and validation of existing adult devices for pediatric use,” said Chester Koh, MD, director of the robotic surgery program at CHLA and co-director of CTIP. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has estimated that the development of pediatric medical devices lags behind the development of adult devices by five to 10 years. This delay is a result of economic, clinical and regulatory challenges, as well as a lack of established mechanisms for joining pediatric device ideas with qualified individuals, programs and industry partners. To tackle this problem, CHA and USC are joining forces by uniting programs, in-

stitutes, faculty and students, along with industry and venture capital partners, in a topic-focused, systems-oriented approach. CTIP will assemble this team of multidisciplinary stakeholders with the goal of: • identifying and fostering innovative pediatric device projects • connecting internal and external resources and people to support pediatric medical device development • addressing current barriers to commercialization, and • identifying academia’s role in alleviating these barriers, especially with regard to teaching and students. “Our long-term plans are for the CTIP to sustain a productive pipeline of new pediatric devices at Children’s Hospital and USC so that we can make a difference in the lives of patients right now as well as looking forward to improvements that will have a positive impact on their future,” said Brent Polk, MD, director of The Saban Research Institute and chair of pediatrics at USC’s Keck School of Medicine.

USC’s Ostrow School Of Dentistry Wins Grant To Treat Children Living On Skid Row Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children (HSHC), the Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), awarded USC’s Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry with one of its five HSHC Access to Care Grants during the AAPD’s 64th Annual Session at the Hilton New York last week. The grant recognizes the partnership between the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry and the Union Rescue Mission (URM) for their commitment to providing the first comprehensive care dental clinic, and the only one to treat children in the L.A. Skid Row area. According to the L.A. Homeless Service Authority’s 2005 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, 9,458 youths under the age of 18 were either unsheltered or living in emergency transitional housing. Since there is a turnover rate of families rotating in and out of homelessness, this gives a 25,632 annual projection of homeless children in L.A. These children often lack basic necessities in life, such as shoes or clothing, let alone personal hygiene items, and dental treatment is often low on the priority list of homeless families. “USC’s dental clinic at the Union Rescue Mission offers free emergency and limited comprehensive dental treatment to the homeless in the inner-city, and it is the only dental clinic in the area to treat homeless children,” said Carol Parker, project manager at the Ostrow School. “All clinic services are solely supported by grants and donations, and this grant will help us to offer oral hygiene kits, oral hygiene instruction and dental treatment to homeless children living in shelters and transitional housing.”

The grant will enable the clinic to reach up to 6,000 children and their families by participating in several Skid Row events during the year, as well as help supply oral hygiene kits at the annual Skid Row “Back to School Give Away” in October. Dental screenings are also performed for homeless families at the “Project Homeless Connect” fair every December, and children needing treatment are referred to the dental clinic. In addition, oral hygiene instructions, dental screenings and referrals will be executed throughout the year at after school programs through the Skid Row Central City Community Outreach and at Hope Gardens (the Union Rescue Mission home for women and children). This year, HSHC doubled its receipt of applications to more than 130 for the five 2011 Access to Care Grants, which were awarded to organizations that supported local service initiatives and provided oral health care to underserved children and/or children with limited access to care. “We are proud to provide the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry and its Homeless Children’s Oral Health program with this $20,000 grant on behalf of Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children,” said Dr. David K. Curtis, president of HSHC. “Sadly, the number of homeless families with children has increased significantly over the past decade and families with children, in particular, are among the fastest growing segments of the homeless population. The Homeless Children’s Oral Health program supports HSHC’s goal to positively impact the oral health of children by targeting homeless children who often fall through the cracks.”

Cheryl Rowley Closes 25-Year Old Canon Drive Hotel Design Firm Twenty-five years after opening her firm, and guiding its growth into an office staff of 35, Cheryl Rowley is closing Cheryl Rowley Design, 446 S. Canon Dr., and opening a new chapter in her life by moving to her family’s home on Vancouver Island. “The sudden deaths of two very dear friends was a huge reminder that life is very short, making me question the fact that I have been living apart from my family the past five years,” says the design executive, whose bold look-rich colors, strong patterns and energetic stripes-turned the hotel industry on its beige-infatuated head. Her firm created the look of luxury hotel resorts for Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, Rosewood, Mandarin Oriental, and others, and was best known for originating the designs for the Monaco and Palomar brands among 20 boutique hotels completed

for the Kimpton Hotel and Restaurant Group. Rowley is stepping back from the design industry, but not without making her mark. At the dawn of the boutique age, she introduced the hospitality industry to a thenrevolutionary concept: a genuine sense of place. She was inducted into the Platinum Circle for Excellence in Hospitality Design, the hospitality design community's highest honor. She is quick to make clear, however, that this move does not mean an end to her journey in design. “I’m a designer and will always remain a designer–it's an intrinsic part of me and my life.” Rowley plans to first pick up the projects she’s long waited to do, including a book, a signature product line, and collaborating with other design professionals in ways that don’t involve running a large design company.

Barbara Tfank

Barbara Tfank; one of today's rising stars in the fashion industry, will be debuting her 2011 FallWinter trunk show exclusively at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills, June 7 and 8. Tfank, known for her classically shaped silhouettes and extraordinary textiles, is quietly becoming the "go-to" designer for some of the world's most photographed and powerful women. "I like being a well kept secret", said Tfank in a recent interview from her studio in Los Angeles' Korea town. "I want to start a new trend and not talk about the celebrities wearing my clothes. Don't get me wrong, I'm flattered notable women are choosing my designs, but I'm not going to exploit their choices just to promote my line. My designs are catching on and becoming popular by word of mouth, I don't have a PR company, and for now, I like it that way." Her stellar career began as a design assistant before quickly moving into the world of costume design, where she created trend-setting wardrobe collections for several films during the early 1990's. She invited Prada; at that time, littleknown in the US, to collaborate on some of the women's costumes, and became Prada's design consultant until starting her own line in 2001. Barbara Tfank's fall-winter collection is brimming with the classical glamour of brocade cocktail coats and rich jewel-tone fabrics in turquoise and amethyst. Her exquisite hand-tailored craftsmanship evokes the glamour years of Elizabeth Taylor and exudes American sophistication in a subtle manner that is certain to attract the most well dressed woman.

LA Star on the Rise Fashion News & Notes Neiman Marcus Keys On Tehnology as Web Sales Rise Karen Katz, new president and chief executive officer of Neiman Marcus said, "Neiman's is boosting capital expenditures to capture greater e-commerce sales and strengthen communications with customers via "fashion insider" blogs and e-mail tips, the company's Web sites, Facebook and other social media". Luxury shoppers like lavish service, elegant stores and the latest styles. But they like their laptops too and are increasingly spending time and money online. WWD

May Retail Sales Disappoint While a majority of stores reporting results generated increases in their comparable-store sales for May, most came in below analysts' - and in many cases their own - expectations. Exceptions included Macy's Inc., which reported a better-thanexpected 7.4 percent increase on Wednesday, and The Buckle Inc., which registered an 8.8 percent comp gain, 2.5 points above consensus estimates. Analysts said midtier and higher-end chains with a sharp focus on fashion took market share last month. WWD

regulations, the goal of which she said is, as articulated by the Commission, to “provide an avenue for residents to address view impairment while also looking at residential privacy and security, the garden quality of the City, the safety and stability of hillsides and acknowledging that trees are an integral part of a sustainable environment,” as well as an issue of energy efficiency due to the ability of trees to shade homes and reduce a need for energy. McGrath explained the issue dated back to May 28, 2009 at which time the Commission began to address foliage blocking views in the City’s hillside areas. She said a draft ordinance was presented to the City Council on Jan. 25, 2011 at which time the Council, con-

cerned about the potential costs to the City for the review process as well as to view owners, directed an Ad Hoc Committee to meet with staff and the community. Since then the Ad Hoc Committee considered options such as including the option for parties to choose binding arbitration at any time, further transfer costs to foliage owners and support for expanding the code enforcement solution to view obstruction problems. Several community members spoke at the hearing after McGrath’s presentation. The Planning Commission discussed with staff and the community their questions and concerns on the recommendations for the draft regulations and decided to revisit the issue at their June 9 meeting.

How to lose weight and never go hungry By: John Whitacre, Media Services New research at UCLA, Sam Houston University, Penn State University, Tufts University and many other scientific institutions have found substantial evidence to support what many experts believe is the leading cause of people being overweight and how to correct it.1 This major cause of excess weight is not overeating at the main meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is snacking on junk food between meals. Eating high protein, high fiber, nutritious snacks (Super Food snacks) corrects this problem and produces substantial weight loss in many ways. Finally, you can lose weight and never go hungry. All you have to do is switch your junk food snacks to newly developed, better tasting Super Food snacks. Endless Youth and Life Super Food Crackers, Oatmeal Cookies and Chocolate Chunk Cookies are high protein, high antioxidant, good fiber, low calorie, low glycemic and low fat, and yet taste better than junk food crackers and cookies. Super Food snacks help you lose weight without going hungry 7 ways: 1) These Super Food snacks, unlike junk food snacks, are high in protein. Protein satisfies hunger much better and much longer than carbohydrates and fat which make up the majority of the content of junk food. Super Food snack customers say just 1 ounce of Super Food snacks satisfies their hunger for 2 to 4 hours. The one ounce servings are individually packaged for maximum freshness and convenience. 2) Super Food snacks contain complex carbohydrates which are low glycemic. They take longer to digest and therefore do not spike blood sugar. Junk food is very high in simple carbohydrates such as white flour and sugars which are high glycemic and spike blood sugar. This produces a reaction by the body that sweeps the excess sugar from the bloodstream to below normal levels. This causes you in minutes to be hungrier than you were before you started eating the junk food. Also, most of the excess blood sugar is then converted to stored fat. 3) Junk food is low in fiber. Super Food snacks contain a good amount of fiber. Fiber also helps satisfy hunger and moves food through the digestive track faster so that you are less bloated and your food in the digestive track does not sit and develop toxins. 4) The low protein in junk food deteriorates your muscles, organs, brain, skin, hair and nails which are

all made out of protein. Your lean body mass, mainly muscle, burns the majority of your calories. A pound of muscle burns 30 calories per day while a pound of fat only burns 2 calories per day. Therefore, every pound of muscle you lose, you lose the burning of 30 calories per day. This means you will keep storing more and more fat the more muscle you lose. You will have to eat less and less not to gain weight. In addition, you will look worse because of unhealthy wrinkled skin,

thin dull hair, and thin nails that break constantly. 5) High protein snacks are also important to maintaining muscles, organs, brain, skin, hair and nails because protein has to be in the bloodstream constantly on demand. The body cannot store protein like it stores fat. High protein snacks are the convenient way to keep that critical protein in the bloodstream throughout the day and even at night. 6) A high protein diet increases

the production of good hormones which increase your metabolic rate (calorie burning rate) and assist in the production of lean body mass. Protein also takes many more calories to digest than carbohydrates and fat. And, 75% of carbohydrates and 100% of fat can be converted to stored fat. Less than 30% of protein can be converted to stored fat. 7) Super Food snacks also provide the ultimate nutrition of high protein, high omega 3 and high antioxidants. This provides you with

an overall healthier body which functions better and provides you with much more energy. You will therefore be more active and burn more calories. Another sensational thing about Super Food snacks is this. They taste better than junk food snacks. It used to be that healthy snacks and high protein snacks always used to taste bad and have the texture of cardboard. That has all been changed through a major multi-million dollar, 7 year research project by Endless Youth and Life. This massive research project produced good tasting, healthy high protein snacks. The lead members of the Research & Development team were: Sandip Parikh, one of the best food engineers in the nation; Rehan Jalali, the leading nutritionist to the Hollywood stars; David Dearth, professional bodybuilding champion and personal trainer to the Hollywood stars; Jon Molnar, Executive Chef; and Doug Balchan, a leading food production engineer. Jalali came up with initial formulas which were then turned over to Molnar to make them taste good. Molnar came up with a delicious recipe for multi-herb crackers, oatmeal cookies and chocolate chunk cookies. Typical protein snacks contain low quality unhealthy ingredients because these ingredients are cheap. Molnar was told to spare no cost and to use the best and healthiest ingredients available. These ingredients included the highest quality proteins of wheat protein isolate and whey protein. He also used high quality whole wheat flour, honey for sweetener, olive oil and Himalayan salt which is the healthiest salt in the world. Jalali said, “I wanted the snacks to be very high in protein by weight. But, this caused a problem because the high protein caused the dough to toughen to the point where it would break mixers. The resulting product was also stiff. We could also not get the texture right, especially on the crackers, nor could we get them to bake evenly.” “The dough stiffening we found was caused by the high level of quality protein. Doug Balchan solved this problem, which I will let him explain.” Balchan revealed, “I solved the problem by using natural methods to cut the long protein strands. Proteins are highly elastic, just like rubber bands. By cutting these proteins into smaller segments at particular locations, they maintain their nutritive properties while losing some of their elasticity. Just like rubber bands cut into small segments are made up of exactly the same materials, but they donʼt snap back. Protein is the same. When ingested, the body puts the strands back together to form the 9 critical amino acids.” “We also added natural soluble and insoluble fibers, not only for the healthful benefits, but also to improve the workability of the dough.” The crackers presented more major problems which were the cracker texture and the even baking throughout. This was also solved by Balchan and Parikh. Balchan explained, “To get the proper texture, the dough for the crackers had to be multiple-layered. To get the even baking, the crackers had to go through 500 feet of multi-

ple ovens, all with different temperature zones, hitting each temperature zone at its precise time sequence.” Parikh stated, “There were also many other factors to overcome to get the proper taste and texture, such as the preprocessing of ingredients, the type of ingredients, and the mixing ingredients which took many years. But, all of this resulted in the most delicious high protein, ultra-healthy snacks that you cannot possibly make at home or even in the kitchen of a 5-star restaurant.” “These snacks are the absolute best tasting highest quality protein and healthiest snacks on the market. The crackers contain 32% high quality protein by weight more than all other foods. The cookies contain 18% protein which is more protein than 98% of all other foods.” Jalali concluded, “The ingredients in these snacks are the best and therefore the most expensive. So they do cost more than other protein snacks. Junk protein snacks cost $.50 to $.80 an ounce. Good protein snacks cost about $1.00 to $1.25 an ounce. Super Food snacks cost about $1.39 per ounce. The crackers recommended retail price is $6.95 for a 5 oz. box and the cookies is $7.95

for a 6.2 oz. box. But, you get what you pay for.” “Most people will spend tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars on clothes, cars and homes. But, they are reluctant to spend money on what is most important, their health. What good is it to have nice clothes, a nice car, a nice house, when you are unhealthy and have a short time to live?” For readers who wish to get these Super Food Crackers and Cookies, you can do so at a big discount.

Inc. is a boutique insurance firm that customizes plans to meet it’s clients’ specific needs. Founded by Farhad Hanasab in 1992, the company provides coverage for homes, automobiles, umbrella coverage for excess liability, and even coverage for private fine art collections, yachts and planes. The company specializes in the areas of sports & leisure, entertainment and real estate. • In the sports category there’s a special program for those who own bowling alleys, skating rinks and batting cages, handled by Robert Ferrer in the Rancho Cucamonga office. “We have negotiated set prices with certain carriers,” Hanasab said. They also provide sports superstars, like Pete Rose, with car, home and life insurance. • TV reality and production shows are regularly covered by Hanasab. Often insurer of both the producer and the show, the company covers on-set injuries, travel, and life insurance for key personnel. Film production and rental houses that provide the equipment are also par t of Hanasab’s area of expertise. • In real estate, the company insures apartment building owners “with the best carriers and best

“Every business is unique,” says Hanasab, “and we have different departments to handle everything.” Not only does the company shop for the best carriers; but it helps clients fill gaps in their coverage. For instance, Hanasab says, business owners need Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) to protect them from employee claims and law suits. Hanasab also recommends this insurance for the high-net-wor th clients he counsels. “A lot of people don’t have umbrella coverage,” he says. “And they may need it in the case of a housekeeper who sues for wrongful termination. If they come to us; we build it into their homeowner's policy.” Before opening his firm, Hanasab worked for the Automobile Club, "where we only did car and home. My feeling is ‘why leave something on the table’—we can handle all of our clients’ insurance needs. Plus most people don’t like having to work with two or three different agents.” Now Hanasab covers a vast part of Beverly Hills and businesses like Martin Katz, “jeweler to the stars,” and Lasik specialist Dr. Kerry Assil.

Page Student Body Hosts ‘Disco Inferno’ For Its Spring Show By Dupé Aleru Held on the big yard of Page Private School, the student body hosted “Disco Inferno” last Thursday for family and friends as its spring show.

Page’s entire student body from pre-school students starting at age two through third grade was a part of the 70’s show festivity. Each class was in charge of choosing a 70’s song to cor-

relate with a teacher-choreographed dance routine. The beautiful costumes and designs were handmade by Page’s very own director, Arlene Martus. Attendees enjoyed the

night filled events of dancing, singing, and a raffle. Following the performance, dinner was served. To view videos, visit http://www.facebook.com/pag eprivateschool?ref=ts.

Sydney Gray Qualifies For State Meet By Dupé Aleru Directed by Head Coach Jeff Fisher, BHHS held its track and field banquet last Friday at Bluebird Café in Culver City. Parents, loved ones and students joined the track team along with the coaches for a night-long celebration of a record breaking season and the hard work of its athletes and coaches. Seniors Sydney Gray, Nick Harper and Erica Hendry were acknowledged by their peers and fellow athletes for their leadership qualities and phenomenal season. Poems and letters were written and read to the outstanding threesome. The night was filled with awards, certificates, harmonious laughter and fun. As track season is now over for the team, there is yet one more meet for running sensation Sydney Gray, who qualified for state honors in the 800m in a time of 2:12.49, at last Saturday’s CIF Masters Meet, held at Cerritos College in Norwalk. Duking it out amongst the best of the best in all divisions in CIF, Gray came in ninth place, her personal best 2:12.49, being her qualifying time for state. Gray’s time ranks as #64 in the U.S. “You have to give all the credit in the world to Sydney. These track meets are very difficult. “There is a lot of anxiety approaching the race because of the level of competition and everything that’s on the line. “For her to not only get the job done of qualifying, but also have her best day doing it, speaks volumes about her character and the type of competitor she is. “We are very proud of Sydney. She is a model of what we are about in the Beverly Hills Track and Field program. “We look forward to the opportunity this Friday and Saturday at the state track meet,” said Head Coach Jeff Fisher.

By Holiday Mathis TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 3). You’ll sample many options through this month and then finally decide on the best course. That’s when you become tremendously tenacious and confident and people will move to accommodate you as you work steadily toward your goals. New relationships start in August. September brings a windfall. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll make a positive impression, and the ensuing connection shows promise. Yet, you may be unsure about the nature of this relationship and where to take it next. Take it slow, and keep an open mind. CANCER (June 22-July 22). How you frame things makes all the difference in how they are received. For instance, when a job seems beneath you but you still have to do it, give it a new title - the fancier the better. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). New sources of inspiration are affecting your mental process. As your imagination continues to work on a problem, unusual thoughts pop to mind and your dreams take a highly creative turn, too. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The normal rules of etiquette may go out the window because there is more pressing business at hand. You may even invite yourself to someone’s house or show up unexpectedly, but your reason will be good. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People are talking about an array of wacky topics. You have a charm-

ing way of focusing the attention on what’s wonderful about life in general. Everyone around you will feel calm and secure. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you do in pursuit of a hobby will open your horizons in other ways, as well. A new source of income opens to you. This could be the start of something significant. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relationships are a push-and-pull dance, and you’d rather be on the “pull” end of things. It is more interesting and less tiring to reel the other person in with your enchanting personality than to be pushy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A sympathetic ear is welcome, although it’s not the best role you could take on right now with a certain someone. Instead of being nurturing and sympathetic, be an exciting and compelling force. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is someone you want to like, and you want this person to like you, too. You hope this person will continue to play the little game you’ve got going. Hint: Flattery is the fastest way to get through the door. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). You would love to be a source of surprise and delight to others, which is why you keep some of your plans a secret. So much depends on your ability to manage the expectations of those around you. ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Your world is not the same world as the one your next-door neighbor experiences. Understanding the differences will make you a very wise person. Your powers are greater than you know. TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You will be in an enterprising mood and not likely to wait for others to show you where the opportunities for fun and profit lie. Anyway, it’s likely that none will exist until you arrive on the scene and create them.

Page 28 | JUNE 4, 2011 ORDINANCE NO. 11-O-2609 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF BEVERLY HILLS EXTENDING INTERIM ORDINANCE 11-O-2608 PROHIBITING HIGH IMPACT CONVENIENCE STORES UNLESS SPECIFICALLY APPROVED BY THE CITY, AND DECLARING THE URGENCY THEREOF. THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BEVERLY HILLS HEREBY ORDAINS AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative Findings. The City Council of the City of Beverly Hills is concerned that high impact convenience stores as defined by this ordinance may not be compatible with nearby land uses in the City. Such uses can generate excessive noise and litter, increase traffic, exacerbate parking issues, and reduce the value and enjoyment of nearby properties. As such, the City Council wishes to consider permanent regulations regarding the development and operation of convenience stores. Because the public process of adopting permanent regulations may be lengthy, and because the establishment of high impact convenience stores during the public process might frustrate the ultimate regulation adopted, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 11-O2608, an interim ordinance that took effect immediately on April 21, 2011 (the “Interim Ordinance”). The Interim Ordinance defines and then prohibits “high impact convenience stores” in the City, allowing them only pursuant to a convenience store conditional use permit. Section 2. Authority. Pursuant to Government Code Section 65858, the City Council may adopt, as an urgency measure, an interim ordinance that prohibits any uses that may be in conflict with a contemplated zoning proposal that the City Council is considering, studying or intends to study within a reasonable period of time. After public notice, the City Council may extend the interim ordinance by a period of 10 months and 15 days, pursuant to Government Code Section 65858. Notice of the public hearing at which the City Council considered adopting this extension ordinance was duly published on May 13, 2011 in the Beverly Hills Courier and also published on May 12, 2011 in the Beverly Hills Weekly. Section 3. Findings.

Urgency

BEVERLY HILLS

PUBLIC NOTICES The City Council finds and determines that the unregulated operation of high impact convenience stores would result in an immediate threat to the public health, safety or welfare. As described in Section 1, the high customer turnover and vehicle-focused nature of high impact convenience stores will likely result in increased localized traffic, parking problems, and unwanted commercial intrusions into established residential neighborhoods. In addition, high impact convenience stores may increase litter and generate excessive noise that would deteriorate the quality of life for those in the immediate vicinity. The unregulated establishment of high impact convenience stores during the Council’s review and consideration of permanent regulations could frustrate the ultimate regulation adopted. Thus, to preserve the public health, safety and welfare, it is necessary that this Ordinance take effect immediately to prevent such harm.

is no possibility that the adoption and implementation of the Interim Ordinance or extension thereof may have a significant effect on the environment. This extension of the Interim Ordinance does not authorize construction and, in fact, imposes greater restrictions on certain development in order to protect the public health, safety and general welfare. This extension is therefore exempt from the environmental review requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations.

Section 6. Severability. If any section, subsection, subdivision, sentence, clause, phrase, or portion of this Ordinance or the application thereof to any person or place, is for any reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional by the final decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of this Ordinance shall be and Section 4. remain in full force and Amendment to the effect.

Rabbi Jacob Pressman

From the Publisher CLIF SMITH

A FOOL’S PARADISE Not one of us alive has ever experienced runaway inflation, constant joblessness, and loss of hope in this country. Except for the depths of the Depression of the 1930s, we have not suffered wholesale loss of wealth, loss of places to live, or economic devastation. hat may change real soon. Today, our governments at nearly every level are spending us into oblivion. “Oil” is not “up”–the dollar is down. What is a “dollar”? It is a national representation of the value of the wealth of our nation represented through the federal government and a predictor of what that wealth will be in the near term. Our national wealth is essentially divided by the number of dollars in circulation. The federal government is printing billions more dollars. Everything we own is being devalued by this. President Barack Obama has created with his Democrat Congress a vast machine that grows daily, feeds on us, and demands that we pay for it. We are paying for it – either in taxes or through the destruction of the value of our property and our labor via printing dollars. At the same time, government at every level restricts, controls and stops wealth creation. Operating the simplest business requires large amounts of money, sophistication, endless patience and a near-neurotic obsession with going it alone. Our government is making it harder every day. Concurrently, governments elsewhere – particularly in China and India – are encouraging manufacturing and real wealth creation. They are cleaning our clock and our response is to send our manufacturing to them. That is insane. What do we lose by that? First, as we’ve seen, we lose jobs. Then we lose opportunity. We no longer make a lot of things, and “financial services” will never replace the creation of things as wealth. Now, because we have exiled so much of our economy, we’re losing little things of great importance like 4th of July Fireworks Shows (just cancelled in Chicago) because of cost. In Beverly Hills, pension costs force our City Council to cut here and cut there – all the while absurd pension benefits are paid to retired workers and featherbedded staffs don’t show up for work because of such abuses as the “9/80 Rule” for City staff. (“Work 80 hours in nine days and you get the 10th day off with pay.”) That rule alone reduces staff on hand on Mondays and Fridays and makes nearly every Beverly Hills City employee eligible for up to 56 days of paid vacation each year. That’s more than 11 weeks of paid vacation and days off. Why? Two factors: public employee unions and socialist ideology, which are really two sides of the same coin. We know that the public employee unions have a stranglehold on California and many states. Indiana and Wisconsin have thrown off the shackles. In California, we just keep tightening them. The socialist philosophy considers all property of a nation and all output of its labor to belong to the government – not “the people,” but the government. A socialist nation only allows its people to retain what they–the government–decide each may have. Wealth and opportunity are distributed by political decision, not freedom of choice or effort. Can anyone name one single “limited government” Democrat? Can you find one that wants government out of the picture instead of controlling the picture?Nope.Are Republicans any better? Recently, not much. Under President George W. Bush, the federal government grew at a rate that made Bill Clinton look like a small government conservative. Read George Orwell’s Animal Farm and you pretty much get the whole picture. It’s a matter of “who’s on top.” It’s not a matter of the “social safety net” we all want. It’s become the excuse to turn that net into a smothering blanket that suffocates all of us. Right now, the House Republicans are actually trying to stop the destruction of our national economy and our wealth by refusing to raise the national debt limit. Arrayed against them are all of the old lobbies and the national press. Joining them are an army of economists who tell us the current situation cannot continue. Look at the irony. Clearly, the much, much lower balanced national budgets proposed by President Bill Clinton and passed by Congress did not “kill old people, starve children and destroy our planet.” Yet take away $1 from the vastly greater amounts now spent by Obama under the Democrat-passed budgets and, according to them, that is what will happen. Did the cost of survival suddenly skyrocket? Of course not. It’s politics and George Orwell tells it so well. The sky will not fall if we spend what we earn without massive borrowing. The sky will fall if we keep this up. If you won’t believe this column, just watch how George Soros is again shorting the dollar so he can make more billions betting against us. We are in a fool’s paradise and we are looking more and more like the fools.

THE BOOM, THE BUZZ AND THE CLANG I raise my pen in protest to discuss the offenses against our ears and our intelligence being perpetrated by some of the finest producers and writers of popular whodunit series on television. For years I wondered what bothered me about them until I began to listen with a sharpened ear. There was a day in the T.V. world when a reasonably full studio orchestra backed significant stories. This afforded me pleasure to my ears, my eyes and my brain. In the course of time, perhaps because of economy, perhaps because of difficulty in commanding such orchestras, the soundtrack was backed by electric organ music. I found it expressive of the themes I was watching and inoffensive to the ear. Since those days, however, there has come a new fashion of stimulating and irritating sound patterns. In a police detective drama the sound track is basically a sustained note sometimes waxing in volume to suggest that something important is going on and sometimes becoming very melodramatic as if to say this is the crux of the matter, the denouement, the crisis. It might be one of TV’s favorite performances: two people leave one room and walk down the hall, tracked by the back-pedaling photographer, and turn into another room possibly with a desk. It takes about 10 seconds of valuable time and makes one think something I’m going on when it is not. Other times instead of a musical note it is a raspy gravelly background sound suggesting that something mysterious and important is taking place before our very eyes. Then it is back again to the irritating single note waxing and waning to persuade us that what we are watching is interesting. It has come to be de rigeur to have background sound of these varieties behind virtually every series whodunit. How does one move from one scene to the next? The popular choice is a jarring clang inferring

that we’re now going to change the scenery and come to something else exciting. One can stand away from the television screen and wait for the clangs to know how many scenes are being shot. A third device is dim light. The writer or producer seems to think that making it very dark and having the actors stumbling about with or without flashlights ads a sense of mystery to what I never find very mysterious. I feel bad for the highly paid actors who have to do this stumbling around, scarcely visible – but it’s a living. The necessity to have a premise, an activity, and an exciting denouement has made squeezing drama into 50 minutes (the rest being taken up with commercials for 10 minutes at least) has placed quite a burden on the writers, and I commend them for their facility for accomplishing this squeezing. The proliferation of game shows is one more evidence of the loss of significant drama on TV and helps give it its popular name: “Boob Tube.” Game shows only require an agile emcee and contestants who will submit themselves to any indignity in order to vie for prize money. The most creative artists working on these game shows are those who design incredibly complicated stage settings, and the writers who think of all kinds of obscure subject matter to test the participants, like: “What was name of the man who shined Attila the Hun’s armor?” Don’t get me wrong. I spend a great deal of time in front of the TV, turning from one news broadcast to the next, torturing myself with the images of current wars, floods, forest fires, tornadoes, volcanoes, and general mayhem. No wonder the fixed screen has sent our newest generation to palm-held miniature eye-strainers instead of face-to-face conversations. By the way, my wife loves the who-done-its. Oh, well, there is no accounting for tastes.

LETTER There is one thing the United States has done the past 50 years that most Americans don’t know or hear about, and will never be told about–but what we should be very proud of...the Peace Corps. Since 1961, more than 200,000 Americans have volunteered to serve our nation in 139 foreign countries. The mission provides technical assistance, helping people outside the U.S. to understand our culture and help us to understand them and promote world peace. President John Kennedy said: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Herbert L Wallerstein
