The status does not eliminate the need to maintain a reserve with the Los Angeles County Office of Education, which must be at least 3 percent of the district’s annual budget.

Fashion News & Notes Lady Gaga Sets World Record for McQueen Dress Lady Gaga broke a record at auction on Wednesday night, paying $133,075 for an Alexander McQueen dress from the wardrobe of Daphne Guinness that went under the hammer at Christie’s South Kensington here. The singer bid by phone from the U.S. for the ivory silk tulle empire line gown from “The Girl Who Lived In The Tree” collection from autumn/winter 2008-09. It was the highest price paid for a McQueen dress at auction. Meanwhile, a Europebased bidder paid $208,003 for a portrait of Guinness shot by Mario Testino for the March 2008 edition of British Vogue. It was the highest price paid for a Testino photo at auction.

The Christie’s sale broke a third record: A U.S.-based buyer paid $25,366 for a Christian Lacroix Spanish style white lace dress with a black matador jacket. The auction, to benefit The Isabella Blow Foundation, which Guinness founded after the death of her friend in 2007, raised $744,285 or four times the pre-sale estimate. The fashion stylist and muse committed suicide after years of battling depression. “I should have put more in the sale,” said a buzzing Guinness the morning after the auction, which she did not technically attend. “I was hiding at Christie’s on King Street [across town in St. James’s] in my friend’s office. I’m not very good at social gatherings — I’m slightly agoraphobic.” WWD

Movie-star handsome Scott Hines, mayor of Rancho Mirage, grinned comfortably as he welcomed us into his city hall office for the first in a series profiles in The Courier on the outstanding men and woman of the Desert–local dynamos who daily commit time and treasure to improve the quality of life in Coachella Valley. Not surprisingly there was a practiced ease about him; this former Air Force major and Latin American-based intelligence operative is used to dealing with the media after honing his skills briefing generals. The youngest of Rancho Mirage’s five city council members, he is now serving a rotating one year term as mayor. Since the council was previously perceived as a “good, old men’s club,” Hines has overcome less than unanimous approval, (winning his council seat in 2010 by just 11 votes), but his diligence in analyzing the issues and finding solutions has won over many converts. For example while researching the city’s municipal code, he found that by making a minor adjustment to how the city’s streets are painted, dedicated bike lanes could be added at no additional expense. In an achievement he is proud of, 60 percent of the city’s streets now have marked bicycle lanes. Guiding a city that has a multi-million dollar surplus, Hines is concerned that it not expand beyond its tax base, arguing for balanced real estate development–which brings in relatively little revenue–with commercial business, whose payment of sales taxes go almost directly into the city’s coffers. Therefore, according to Hines, the city is in the development stage of a major multiple-use project on land adjacent to the Agua Caliente Casino at the northern gateway to Rancho Mirage. Known as “Section 19” this will feature high-end retail shops and restaurants, offices and luxury residential units in an open, planned, meandering setting to rival The Grove in L.A. When not attending to city business, he enjoys camping with his children and serving as president/COO of World Education University, an institution of higher learning which believes “Education Should Be Free.” Imagine that, Scott Hines does. As he has shown by his service on the city council, if it can be imagined, Hines will find innovative ways to get it done. ****** It’s been called “The Dream on the Hill,” “A Black Hole” and from the numerous contractors and construction workers who haven’t been paid, comments far too unprintable to mention. The object of all this attention: The Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage–the most expensive white elephant ever to take form in Coachella Valley. Years ago, the city boasted it had the only 6-star hotel in the Valley. That was the Ritz-Carlton. Then it was sold and the new owners named the still 6-star property, “The Lodge at Rancho Mirage.” Later, before the debacle at Lehman Brothers heralded in an era of Wall Street woes, the Lodge was sold again, with the new owners planning to use money borrowed from Lehman Brothers and others to tear down and renovate the property to a level of luxuriousness far beyond its former glory. But a funny thing happened on the way to the re-grand opening: money dried up, building ceased and the project lay dormant. Assurances where given that new financing was eminent and that the construction stoppage was just temporary. Unfortunately, no lender was willing to back up these assurances with money, and “The Dream on the Hill,” fittingly, became a mirage. Fast-forward to a few weeks ago and the announcement the Rancho Mirage City Council has given the owners of the Ritz-Carlton an ultimatum–either sell the property, bring in other investors or complete construction of the property by Dec. 2013. There has been optimism about the opening of the Ritz Carlton before … many times before. However, it is beginning to look as if this time the city means business.

must place an amount equal to 3 percent of its annual operating budget into a reserve account with the Los Angeles County Office of Education, LACOE, but receives no interest or earning on the money. The solution unanimously decided by the Board is the purchase of a $1.54 million home at 220 N. Doheny Drive. The four bedroom, five bathroom home will likely be rented out to BHUSD Superintendent Gary Woods and any future Superintendents in the district. During a study session Tuesday afternoon before the board meeting, the district’s Finance Committee questioned the wisdom of the purchase. Others advocated a housing allowance for the superintendent in lieu of an investment in a residence. Board President Brian Goldberg called the home a good investment for the district, both fiscally and for leadership retention. Boardmember Lisa Korbatov said at the meeting, where she appeared by phone from the United Kingdom. “It’s an excellent home.

He said that given current real estate trends, the district could net hundreds of thousands of dollars over the 15-year period of the loan if real estate trends continue. Boardmember Noah Margo countered that the investment was sound. “You can’t get a tear-down [in Beverly Hills] for under $1.3 million,” he said. “It’s a very livable house.” Goldberg told The Courier escrow should close by July 31, following which time the superintendent would be able to take possession of the home. The board plans to negotiate a lease with Woods and will be discussing preliminary terms in closed session on July 17. If the terms are agreeable, the board will report out to the public during its board meeting later that same day Whether the purchase can be used towards the District’s legally-required reserve remained an open question, with attorneys for the District advising it could not.

In the wake of the incident, the Beverly Hilton released the following statement regarding the incident: “The Beverly Hilton can confirm an apparent murder suicide late last Friday, June 22, 2012 evening at the hotel, which is under investigation by local authorities. The safety and security of our hotel guests and team members is of paramount importance at all times. The hotel is fully cooperating with the Beverly Hills Police Department and requests that all further media inquiries be directed to the authorities.” “You can’t pass a budget based upon what you hope voters may do, that’s lunacy,” McClintock said. “California is another year older and $8 billion deeper in debt.” The school district is estimating reductions of up to $1.6M if the initiative fails. “This budget only confirms what we’ve already known; Public Education is not the top priority in the State,” Board President Brian Goldberg told The Courier.

Beverly Hills High School Bids Farewell To Class Of 2012 By Matt Lopez “Seniors, we have zero days of school left!” BHHS Senior Class President Joel Yadidian yelled at the end of the school’s commencement ceremonies, just before his fellow graduates tossed their caps in the air to celebrate the moment. Beverly High’s 491 graduates piled onto the front lawn of the school last Friday afternoon to receive their diploma in front of hundreds of friends and family. In a class that includes two National Merit Scholarship finalists and the school’s first ever Coca-Cola Regional Scholarship recipient, approximately 94 percent of the school’s graduates will move on to higher education in the fall. In comparison, reports released

Wednesday by the Department of Education stating 21 percent of LAUSD students drop out of school before graduating. “Our stellar graduation rate is a testament to our students and teachers who work incredibly hard to achieve this milestone,” Superintendent Gary Woods said. 69 BHHS graduates will attend a UC school in the fall while 26 students will attend a Cal State. 20 graduates are headed to UCLA, the most of any fouryear school. Nine graduates are headed to USC. Four BHHS graduates are headed to Ivy League schools, with three going to Harvard and the fourth going to Cornell. Courier Photos by Matt Lopez

Renowned Breast Surgeon Joins JWCI The John Wayne Cancer Institute (JWCI) at St. John’s Health Center has announced that, Maureen Chung, M.D., PhD, FACS, will be the new medical director of the Margie Petersen Breast Center, director of the Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program and director of the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Breast Cancer Research Program. “Dr. Chung is an exemplary physician-researcher, educator and leader. Her breadth of expertise will enhance patient care; and her clinical research will help change the way breast cancer is diagnosed and treated,” said Lou Lazatin, president/CEO of JWCI and St. John’s. A leader in the field of surgical oncology, Dr. Chung’s current research focuses on the role of a specific protein produced in breast cancer cells that can inhibit the effectiveness of chemotherapy. She is working on a nanoparticle system that permits simultaneous non-invasive visualization of breast cancers and targeted drug therapy.

Dr. Chung has also pioneered studies on breast-cancer vaccines, the contemporary management of breast cancer and the impact of mammographic screening on breastcancer presentation, treatment and outcome. “It is my goal to develop an inter-disciplinary breast center that is patient focused,” Dr. Chung explained. “It will integrate the clinical disciplines, but also address survivorship, nutrition and breast-cancer risk factors.” Before joining JWCI, Dr. Chung was an associate professor of surgery at Brown University and a breast surgeon at Rhode Island Hospital. A member of the board of directors of the Rhode Island Breast Cancer Coalition, Dr. Chung is also an associate editor of the American Journal of Clinical Oncology, an external grant reviewer for the Arkansas Breast Cancer Research Program and a contributing editor for Women’s Oncology Review. “Dr. Chung is considered a triple threat in American sur-

gery,” said Anton Bilchik, M.D., PhD, FACS, JWCI chief of medicine. “She is an outstanding surgeon, scientist and has a magnetic personality. She is considered one of the national leaders in breast surgery and many leading universities were interested in recruiting her. The addition of Dr. Chung to JWCI continues the tradition of excellence and breakthroughs in cancer care. “Under her leadership the Breast Center at St. John’s will provide women the most comprehensive care for the screening, detection and treatment of breast diseases in Los Angeles.” Bilchik added.

BH Psychiatrist Tackles Social Media Stress By John L. Seitz Have you twittered today? Is your Facebook page repeatedly bugging you about updates awaiting your attention? Can’t stop texting and driving? Just reading information from social media sites can send some people’s stress levels soaring, says Reef Karim M.D., board-certified psychiatrist, assistant clinical professor at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and the director of The Control Center outpatient rehab in Beverly Hills. As a medical specialist in addiction and mental health, Dr. Reef normally sees patients with chemical and behavioral problems, mood and anxiety difficulties, relationship problems and self-destructive habits Lately, however, he’s encountering more and more patients desperate to get the social media monkey off their back. They seek his help at the center, 9777 Wilshire Blvd., because that social media monkey has now turned into an obsessive, all consuming 800-pound gorilla. Karim recalls a 30-yearold-patient, identified only as “Jim,” who’s social media obsession began a cascade of other addictive behavioral problems. “His problems began when he broke up with his girlfriend, became totally stressed out, got hooked on Facebook and couldn’t stop. That’s how it started. A few months later he was online gambling, sports

betting on college teams and spending way too much time looking at porn. Again, he couldn’t stop. Then he started popping Xanax for anxiety and eventually Vicodin.” The Control Center was developed to deal with addiction, mental health and relationship problems in an integrated, non-judgmental way where neuroscience meets holistic healing. Dr. Reef assembled a diverse team of high caliber professionals — mental health doctors, addiction psychologists, relationship experts, trauma experts and experts in meditation, acupuncture, yoga, chinese medicine, nutrition and others — to teach patients how to control their impulses. There’s no template for treatment. Each program is individualized to the patient’s specific needs. “With ever increasing technological advances, our lives are supposed to get easier. Yet,

more and more people are complaining about problems with life satisfaction and feeling more anxious than ever before,” says Karim. Indeed, an influential doctors’ group recently warned that “Facebook depression” can affect those who already have poor self-esteem. In-yourface tallies, status updates, relationship status and photos of people having great times can make people feel even worse if they feel they can’t measure up to this new standard of being successful. “If you view social media as a popularity contest, then you’re setting yourself up to fail,” says Dr. Reef. The Control Center already has a national reputation for dealing with impulse control, relationship problems and obsessive-compulsive behavior of all stripes, and has been profiled on Dr. Phil, CNN and ABC’s Nightline. Karim, or “Dr. Reef” as he’s best known to TV audiences, is himself no stranger to the media. He’s a frequent guest on KTLA and has appeared nationally on most broadcast and cable news networks including Oprah, Dateline and The Today Show. He can currently be seen as the host of Discovery Health & Fitness network’s new show Broken Minds, which profiles disorders of the brain and underscores how fragile mental health can be. Karim emphasizes that no one should think using Facebook or other social media will automatically turn them into addicts. “It can enhance social connectedness, which is a healthy thing especially in a car-oriented cities, where it’s easy to feel isolated. But electronic relationships are not real relationships. And a vulnerability to a mental health problem or addiction can be uncovered or expressed through social media.”


BEVERLY HILLS GOLF CHAMP– BHHS sophomore Lydia Choi made the 2012 US Girls’ Junior Qualifying team again when she took first place in tournament play at the Los Angeles Country Club Monday. Choi, who was first-place winner last year, will play in the championships, July 16-21 at Merced Golf club in Daly City.

ROTARY CLUB (Continued from page 1)

“The Beverly Hills Rotary Club is quite unique,” Knapp said. “To be involved in the service projects we do makes this club extremely vibrant.” Knapp is proud of the many accomplishments of the club under her leadership, including raising money for Operation Smile and working on service projects around the world. One such project was a trip to Puerto Rico to help put in a solar panel to pump water to residents who had no water. Perhaps her fondest memory was hosting Veterans during the club’s Veteran’s Day meeting. Knapp said there is a Rotarian who served in Afghanistan and the club arranged with the

VA to bring veterans to the Beverly Hills Hotel for a club event. AJ Willmer will succeed Knapp as President. The pair said they are working together on a program to help bring more long-term planning to the club. “AJ and I went to a seminar and spent three days going through programs, figuring out how we could plan programs and charitable giving further in advance,” Knapp said. “I think it’s a great source of continuity.” Willmer said the year under Knapp’s leadership has been a success. “It’s been an extraordinary year for our rotary club,” Willmer said. “(Brooke) is someone I have a great deal of respect for. She became a great friend.”

The teams conduct their experiments on the microgravity aircraft which produces weightlessness for periods of up to 25 seconds at a time. Sheerin, who graduated from Harvard with a bachelors degree in physics this spring, joined with his team, which included five MIT students, to submit a proposal detailing their experimental apparatus, procedures, and goals. His team was chosen to attend NASA’s space center in Houston earlier this month to test its experiment. Put simply, Sheerin’s team wanted to test

guidance, navigation and control (GNC) software for space exploration vehicles that visit low-gravity objects like asteroids. The GNC software was developed Draper Laboratory and MIT as part of the Terrestrial Artificial Lunar And Reduced-gravIty Simulator (TALARIS) project in MIT's Space Systems Lab. Sheerin said that in general, the experience was a success. “It was a lot more difficult to maneuver in zero gravity than any of us expected,” Sheerin explained. “But we’re really happy. We did what we got there to do and after going through the data, we’ll be able to see if we performed as expected.” Sheerin plans on applying to graduate school soon to begin a career as an aerospace engineer.

piling data to give the City a topographic map of the property to provide to RTK Architects, the firm hired by the city last month at a cost of $157,000. It was the second topographic map commissioned by the City in the last four years. “It’s so the civil engineer and architect who are designing for that particular site know exactly what the topography looks like,” said Donielle Kahikina, Associate Project Manager for the Roxbury Park project. The City paid $20,000 for Calvada Surveying to provide a topographic map, which essentially gives information on grade changes, elevation

changes and the exact coordinates of the property. The City felt the expenditure necessary despite the fact that it had a topographic map of the park done in 2008 for previous architect Hirsch and Associates. Kahikina said the $20,000 for Calvada Surveying came out of the approved funding for the Capitol Improvement Programs. Kahikina said the City did n’t expect Calvada’s findings to be any different, but that the City simply wanted to provide RTK with the most recent and accurate information. “The land changes over time and the new design team who has professional liability for the project would want to use their own information,” Kahikina said. “Given that the

June 29, 2012 | Page 15 old survey was done under a previous design team, it’s prudent to start with fresh work.” An expert in the civil engineering and topographic field told The Courier that four years was probably not long enough to warrant the production of a new topographic map. Mahir Waber of Waber Consultants, a Civil Engineering and Surveying firm that L.A., Orange, San Diego and Ventura counties, said that in most cases, he’d feel comfortable with a map at least 10-15 years old. “If there have been no addons relating to the site and no changes and the (topographic map) reflects the existing conditions of the site, that should be good enough,” Waber told The Courier.

In response to the heirs lawsuit, UCLA filed a motion opposing the request for a preliminary injunction last Friday, in response to which Walton’s office filed its own response.

Chief among those was the development of the UAV Predator, an unmanned, remote piloted aircraft used by both the CIA and Air Force. Perhaps Crumpton’s most impressive work, however, was leading the CIA in its Afghanistan campaign to find Al-Qaeda in the days, weeks and months following the September 11 attacks. Crumpton said he came close to capturing Osama Bin Laden and fractur-

“There’s always something going on in Beverly Hills, so I probably won’t have quite as many paparazzi issues in Simi Valley,” McCann told The Courier. “I’m sad about leaving such a great City though. This is the only place I would have considered leaving Beverly Hills for.” McCann, a longtime Simi Valley resident, said he was originally contacted about the opening in January and is excited about the opportunity. “Police chief is the highest honor you can achieve and a lot of responsibility goes with

ing the terrorist organization many times. “Before 9/11 there were half a dozen cases where we were able to identify him at his location, but didn’t have sufficient authorities or resources to capture or kill him,” Crumpton told The Courier. “When (the United States killed Bin Laden), I got a sense of grim satisfaction.” Crumpton was quoted earlier this month saying President Barack Obama had “hostility” toward the CIA when he first entered the White House. Crumpton elaborated on that Wednesday. “One of the first things he did was direct the Department of Justice to investigate CIA offithat,” McCann said. “You’re the leader and have to provide direction which I’m looking forward to.” One of McCann’s most important roles with the department has been his work in aiding the department fiscally. In recent years, McCann has been instrumental in the development of several new programs to help the BHPD work around a decreased budget. Recently, he spearheaded an asset forfeiture plan which allowed Beverly Hills to bring in revenue for the department on any assets seized in partnership with a federal law enforcement agency.

The move has been a rousing success for the BHPD and has helped the department offset its training budget, as well as helping with employee overtime costs, surveillance and supplies. McCann will begin in Simi Valley on July 16 with an annual salary of $196,700. He said his replacement would be hired from within the department. “To me it’s the employees that help maintain the magic of Beverly Hills and make it a place where people want to visit, live and work,” McCann said. “It’s a special place and I’ll definitely miss it.”

Novel Laser Treatments Help Beverly Hills Resident everly Hills resident Lorraine Wittelsohn had lost all hope when her back pain worsened after surgical treatments. Five years ago, she underwent surgery to treat her persistent back pain. To her dismay, the pain symptoms actually worsened after the operation. Lorraine had tried almost everything for pain, before resorting to surgery: acupuncture, massage treatments, chiropractic adjustments and numerous injection treatments. Some of these modalities provided some temporary pain relief, but no longterm relief. She couldn't tolerate prescription pain medications as they made her sick to the stomach. Being an active, healthy person with no underlying medical problems, Lorraine couldn’t figure out why her pain symptoms could not be effectively treated. It was at this juncture, she learned about novel laser treatments called Low Intensity Laser Ablation (LILA™) being used at Advanced Interventional Pain Center. LILA™ was invented by Dr. Pattanam Srinivasan, and is the first laser of its kind in the world that selectively targets pain without effecting healthy tissues. “Unlike common surgical laser treatments which destroy both healthy and bad tissues by heat, LILA™ preserves healthy tissues and non-pain nerves while disrupting only the chronic pain nerves,” notes Dr. Srinivasan who is also the clinical director of Advanced Interventional Pain Center. “Preser vation of healthy tissues and not destroying the non-pain nerves is an important part of normal healing and repair,” says Dr. Amit Gupta who is a Harvard Medical School-trained pain interventionalist and co-director of the pain center. Lorraine was subsequently consulted by Drs.

Sisters’ New icia Boutique Gives My Head Is Spinning! No Need Clients ‘The Celebrity Look’ To Suffer: Many Types Of he name of their hot new boutique Dizziness, Vertigo Are Treatable on Robertson comes from their

T

names. Growing up in South Central L.A., Maricia and Leticia Magaña were known as the “icia” sisters. Now they've combined their skills to create a hip customer- and even dogfriendly destination for clothes handbags, Jewelry, hats and hair accessories —icia Boutique. The sisters bring varied backgrounds to their new endeavor. Maricia worked in the music industry, while Leticia, always interested in fashion, set up boutiques in New York. Their adopted brother Ken Donaldson serves as financial officer. The inspiration for the store is to help clients “get the celebrity look for less.” “With the current economy, people still want to look in style without spending as much; and we offer that,” says Maricia. In her promotional work with Interscope Records, Maricia worked with celebrities like Lady Gaga, Fergie and Mary J. Blige, traveling with them on the road and getting them to shows and radio interviews. “What they were wearing was a big deal. We know the look and how to achieve it.” Not a brand-heavy store, Maricia says, icia is a showcase for up-and-coming designers they’re always on the lookout for. And they hope one day to include Leticia’s line. “Ever since she was little she always had a little book of sketches,” said Maricia. Since leaving the record company,

By Greg Cox, RPT & B. Maya Kato, MD izziness is a common symptom, experienced by patients throughout the world. In fact, it is the third most common symptom reported to primary care physicians in the U.S., according the Nation Institutes of Health. It is a familiar chief complaint, but “dizziness” is often incorrectly treated or ignored, because of a lack of understanding about the symptoms, and available treatment. Is it vertigo, dizziness or imbalance? Physicians and patients alike often don’t understand the difference in these terms, which can delay necessar y treatment and relief for the patient. Stroke, heart problems, and hypoglycemia are all different conditions, yet all may share seemingly similar symptoms of “dizziness.” It’s important that the terms “vertigo,” “light-headed” and “imbalance” are not mistakenly or interchangeably used. What’s the difference? • Vertigo: The whole-body sensation of uncontrolled spinning, as if someone pushed you into a dryer and turned it on. Episodes of vertigo are usually disabling during their course. • Light-headedness: The feeling as if you are about to black-out or lose consciousness. There is no actual sensation of motion. This is common with blood-pressure problems and hypo-

she has traveled extensively, so the shop has pieces from all over the world. They also work with a jeweler who decorates handbags with Swarovski crystals and designs exclusive pieces. icia is also known for its “concierge” service. “We make people welcome,” says Maricia. “We have seats If a husband needs to sit down. And we spend personal time with customers to put a whole outfit together.” A lot of customers have noticed the pink dogie bowl outside the shop while walking their dogs. Since Leticia use to take her Pomeranian everywhere, the pair insisted on a dog-friendly boutique. As part of their “giving back” philosophy, from noon-3 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, the sisters are hosting a fundraiser for Justyn Farina, who is fighting cancer.

glycemia. • Imbalance: The inability to maintain balance; a feeling of disequilibrium. There is no true vertigo, and one does not feel as if they are about to pass out. This is common among the elderly, especially when they are falling. The most common type of vertigo is often caused by Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo (BPPV), a condition where the normally occurring gravitydetection cr ystals of the inner ear become dislodged and migrate into the part of the inner ear that controls visual stability. When these crystals move around with specific head motions, they induce a false sense of movement that is perceived as if you are spinning. This often occurs when rolling over in bed, looking up or down, or leaning back to have one’s hair washed at the beauty salon. The spinning sensation is violent, but brief, lasting no more than 15 seconds (although it may feel like longer). Fortunately BPPV is quite easy to treat if it is correctly identified, but you should see a qualified physical therapist specialist who treats inner-ear conditions. Treatment is usually a series of gentle head and body movements that return the loose crystals to their proper place. Once this is done, the vertigo usually stops, and most patients with this condition are cured with only one (see ‘SPINNING,’ page LGFG4)

treatment. It is also important to know that BPPV is a mechanical disorder and is not treatable with any type of medication. Are there other types of “dizziness”? Yes. It is important to understand that dizziness, light-headedness, vertigo and imbalance are all “symptoms,” not diagnoses in and of themselves. Symptoms often belie underlying medical illness. Therefore, it is extremely important that a qualified physician, such as an Otologist (ear specialist) perform a complete medical evaluation. Not all physicians have expertise in treating “dizziness,” so it is important to ask.” An Otologist may recommend painless, non-invasive tests (including hearing test, inner-ear diagnostics such as VAT and ENG) to help in diagnosing the cause of the dizziness. Blood tests, CT or MRI scans or cardiology tests may also be ordered for certain dizzy symptoms. In addition to BPPV, other common

causes of “dizziness” include: Meniere’s disease, migraines, and presbystasis (age related dysfunction of the inner ear). As with any disease, curative treatment depends on making the proper diagnosis, and is different for each of these specific causes. The good news is that most types of “dizziness” are treatable. Treatment may include dietary management, occasionally medication. Surger y may be curative for some patients, but is not often necessary. Many causes of “dizziness” are best treated with a specialized form of Physical Therapy called “Balance & Vestibular Therapy.” Balance & Vestibular Therapy is rendered only by qualified Physical Therapist specialists who usually have many years of clinical experience and training. Physical Therapy departments that offer treatment for backs, shoulders and knees are usually not facilities that specialize in this field so it is important that you specifically request a specialist. Therapy is one-on-one with a licensed Physical Therapist (not an aide) and usually one to two times a week for several weeks. Advances in Otology and Balance & Vestibular Therapy have provided major improvements in diagnosis and treatment. Working with the specialists in these fields can often eliminate dizziness, prevent falls, and restore one’s health and quality of life.

The Hearing Corner Your Audiological Questions Answered By Jonathan Leiterman, Sc.D hat are the new innovations in hearing aid technology?

W

One of the more exciting products is the Lyric. It is a hearing solution that is hidden deep inside the ear canal, just four millimeters from the eardrum. It is called an extended-wear hearing solution. It is worn 24 hours a day, and its batteries last approximately 90 days. In fact, I recommend the device to many of patients and they turn out to be extremely happy with it; and often refer their family and friends. In fact, our office is one of the few that is licensed to carry the Lyric hearing aid. Lyric has a natural sound quality and is easy to use, a feature most people enjoy about the product. How can a patient know if this is the right option for them? The Lyric is not for ever ybody. Although it would be great if everyone could be a candidate; there are some reasons why people are not good candidates. The size of someone’s ear, especially women, plays a major roll of how the product can be inserted properly. Secondly, the amount of hearing loss someone has is a factor. More severe hearing losses are not really suited for this type of product. It is a small product, so there are restrictions on how much power the

hearing aid can generate. Lastly, medical history is important for candidacy. There are some contraindications that can prevent someone from being a candidate. If a patient is not a candidate for the Lyric what other options do they have? Since not every person is a candidate for lyric manufacturers are designing similar size hearing aids to Lyric, but are called daily wear vs. extended wear. This means the hearing aids are taken out every night and the battery has to be changed. With the evershrinking technologies there are more available products in smaller options. As always the size and shape of someone’s ear as well as how much hearing loss they’ve suffered factors into the selection of the most appropriate product for an individual.

One must remember that the basis of a good Audiologist is their ability to offer a variety of the latest hearing technology while choosing a solution that fits the individual’s needs. If you have any questions and concerns for me, and would like your comments to be featured in The Hearing Corner, email me at socalhear@gmail.com or call to book a free one-on-one consultation.

current reserve is a “very healthy” 9 percent according to the district’s chief administrative officer, Dawnalyn Murakawa-Leopard.

down to 3 percent,” she said. Failure to maintain the required reserve can result in state takeover of a school district. Woods said that 180 school districts in California, out of 1,000, have indicated they have a problem maintaining the reserve. “We’re indicating that on paper we’re going to be balanced and that we will have a 3 percent reserve,” he said. Goldberg said there is no current plan to restore the large reserve in order to maintain small classes, no layoffs, no fur-

lough days and current programs. “I can’t have my cake and eat it too,” he said. “Without making substantial cuts...I don’t see how we can maintain programs and strengthen the reserves. “The reality is, we don’t have a plan to build our reserve because we don’t know what our budget’s going to look like in six months.” As a Basic Aid District - the only school district in Los Angeles County that is not funded on a per student basis BHUSD depends on local property taxes for funding. The Board projected those taxes to increase by 1.5 percent in 2012/13, 2 percent the year after and 2 percent the year after that. “Our budgets are always a working document...always in

flux,” Woods said. The $3 million reductions include a $910,000 decrease in local fundraising, a possible $1.6 million reduction if the Governor’s tax initiative fails in November and other state-mandated cuts. Due to transportation funding and a higher deficit factor, the district’s fair share reduction in state revenue is greater by $600,000 in 2012-2013. “It was very important that we passed the budget,” Goldberg said. “[The] vote means that we will have a positive certified budget from LACOE.” The board will begin the process of identifying both potential budgetary reductions and potential sources of revenue enhancement during its study session scheduled for July 19 at 5 p.m.

CHLA Plans For Charity Gala By Laura Coleman Tim Leiweke has an eye for talent and a committment to philanthopy - so when the Anschutz Entertainment Group president put his name behind Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) latest fundraising effort and pledged to match donations toward its October 20 gala “Noche de Niños” dollar-for-dollar, it inspired donors to dig deep. The 110-year-old organization has already raised close to $1 million in anticipation of the upcoming event which will honor Heidi Klum and Pau Gasol. During Wednesday night’s host committee meeting at Wolfgang Puck LA Live, CHLA Jr. Ambassador Javier Arreola, 10, offered a first-hand look at how the hospital transforms. The 61-pound CHLA patient, diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as an infant, weighed two pounds at birth and 23 pounds two years ago. “This hospital is one of my favorite places...[it’s] like a 5star hotel or what I think one would be like,” he said, emphasizing that he considered the hospital a second home. “Your support of the hospital makes all the difference for kids like me.” For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.chla.org or call 323-3615972.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 29). A strange series of events begins in July. You’ll make sweet success of what comes. The next six months challenge you like windmills challenged Don Quixote. Windmills are not giants, yet seem like something to be conquered. Taurus and Scorpio people adore you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). How light can you be? The answer: as light as your heart allows. Unburden yourself so you can fly to the moon in your imagination–a meditation highly recommended. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your inner needs are mirrored in people you meet today. The cool thing about it is that you don’t even know what you need until someone you meet speaks the words. Magic. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Waiting can be something that happens when you’re in between events, or can be a habit. Which one is it for you? Establish a habit doing things right now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have an appetite today, an appetite for a high quality of life and a fruitful existence. You’ll bite into that fruit and be excited by the tastes that are so of the moment that you’ll hardly believe your joy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Each generation has its own peculiar logic. Relationships you cherish may not be something you can explain to your elders. Do your best, though. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Make a game plan for getting what you want. Planning is very important but not easy to do. Take the time to make an excellent plan. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You relate well to the people you meet, quickly finding common ground. The wide range of life experiences you sought makes this possible, which is why you continue to seek new adventures daily. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Someone in your history was displeased with how the events of your relationship unfolded. The blame is not entirely yours to claim. It takes two to tango. The sooner you move on the better. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). You can be proud of how you got past the difficulties in your life. And if you ever need to remember, you have witnesses to those times. It will bolster your confidence to privately celebrate your victory once more. ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr.19). The way you look or think you look has a profound influence on how the day unfolds. Take time to dress for the occasion to bolster confidence. TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). Your domestic and professional needs are very much in line right now, making it relatively easy for you to get where you want to go. The energy is with you, so run with it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have kindred spirits you don’t even know about. You’ll meet one this weekend, so get out there and be ready to place your hand in the hand of another and say hello.

LEGAL NOTICES NOTICE OF TRUSTEE'S SALE T.S No. 1356810-02 APN: 5555-006-134 TRA: 001349 LOAN NO: Xxxxxx4652 REF: Crowley, Stephen IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST, DATED March 02, 2005. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. On July 19, 2012, at 9:00am, CalWestern Reconveyance Corporation, as duly appointed trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust recorded March 08, 2005, as Inst. No. 05 0520102 in book XX, page XX of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, executed by Stephen John David Crowley, will sell at public auction to highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank Behind the fountain located in civic center plaza, 400 civic Center Plaza Pomona, California, all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: Completely described in said deed of trust The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1155 N. La Cienega Blvd., #903 West Hollywood CA 90069 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $377,804.27. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no

further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www.rppsales.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1356810-02. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web Site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. For sales information:(619)590-1221. CalWestern Reconveyance Corporation, 525 East Main Street, P.O. Box 22004, El Cajon, CA 92022-9004 Dated: June 28, 2012. (R-413557 06/29/12, 07/06/12, 07/13/12)

From the Publisher CLIF SMITH

THE END OF LIMITED GOVERNMENT For all the fuss about “conservative” vs. “liberal” decisions from the Supreme Court, the net outcome for decades of decisions has been vastly increased powers of the central government. Yesterday’s Obamacare decision was no different. The Supreme Court’s decision against Arizona about immigration similarly stripped long-established powers from individual states. No state may now defend itself. Whether a new Congress and a new president repeal the Obamacare statutes is not now the issue. The issue is individual rights vs. the power of the state. Chief Justice John Roberts, whose vote decided the case, now tells us that the “power to tax” in the Constitution grants the federal government the right to compel us, as individuals, to do whatever the government decides we must do. That’s what this decision means. It is not really about “health care” at all, but about federal power. With a few clever twists, that power is now limitless. The Supreme Court in its Arizona illegal immigration case decision also told the individual states that they may not do precisely what they had always done – defend themselves. Forget our American history. Forget that state governors were formerly called upon to raise troops for the national defense. Forget World War I, the Spanish American War, the Civil War and the War of 1812. When the British threatened New Orleans, it was state militias, not a federal army, that defended the city and the entire Mississippi region. States provided most of the soldiers for the Civil War. Which amendment to the Constitution stripped states of the power to defend themselves from foreign invasion? Perhaps the purpose of the Constitution is no

longer relevant. That purpose was to grant specific, limited powers to a central government with all other powers reserved to the states and the people, respectively. Maybe that concept is just for us dinosaurs. Give way to the modern interpretation that the feds can do what they want. Does Congress count? Apparently not. When President Obama’s de facto grant of amnesty to millions of illegal aliens is considered, not only have the states and the people been supplanted, but to a large degree so has Congress. Congress never said “amnesty” to illegals. The President just did. Does it matter? History is no help. The more you know of American history the more you are in disbelief of these actions. According to the Supreme Court majority opinion, anything can be required from us without limit if it’s just connected to what the Supreme Court calls “a tax.” Forget that the President insisted Obamacare does not involve a tax. With federal power unlimited, it seems like the only “limit” we can hope for – if we get nailed by the feds for something – is to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court. We are left with the slim chance that they find something wrong with whatever the government is doing to us. This is not the purpose of the Constitution. The end result is government by fiat – the diktat of the legislature and President without limitation, and often only the President. Elsewhere, that would be called dictatorship. What do we now call it here? But hey, who picked what player in the NBA draft? Let’s focus on what is truly important – certainly not our individual liberties.

Rabbi Jacob Pressman SEVENTY PLUS SIX YEARS WITH THE SAME WOMAN It is with amazement and gratitude that I take my wireless computer “mouse” in hand and compose this column. I hasten to explain that the “same woman” is one Marjorie, nee Steinberg, and Margie to her friends, whom I met at the steps of our synagogue in Philadelphia on Yom Kippur, Sept. 26, 1936. She was 15. I was almost 17. We spent a great deal of time at the synagogue, named Beth Am Israel working with youth groups after school, and later when we both went to the University of Pennsylvania. I am surprised in retrospect that neither set of our parents ever attempted to restrict how much we shared with each other. When Margie finished college in 1942, I was already at the seminary. Our beloved Rabbi Morris Goodblatt at Beth Am Israel married us on June 14. After the wedding luncheon, many of our family and friends escorted us to Penn Station and threw rice at us as we boarded the train for New York, never to return except for brief visits. From day one, while I was at the seminary, Margie was always involved. She worked at Abraham and Strauss Department Store until they insisted she work on the Jewish Sabbath. She then worked at the seminary, sold many United States War Bonds, and made our home a social center for the seminary students–all of them single. When I was assigned to the Forest Hills Jewish Center as an interim rabbi, we made a new comfortable nest for our apartment there. Since coming to Los Angeles, she both worked and gave outstanding leadership to my congregations, raising millions of dollars to the many organizations she led or advised, to Israel and Chaim Sheba Medical Center. She gave Caesarian birth to our three children, love to our five grandchildren and one great-grand. My conclusion is that she has matched whatever volume of service I have given in my work. From that day when I first saw her, we have had a partnership of similarity of views on everything, mutual respect, and true love.

LETTERS Twice in Friday's issue, you refer to the late Jon Cherney, in whose name a scholarship is awarded each year, as a “teacher” at Beverly Hills High School. Actually, Jon was a member of our noncertified, or classified staff. I think it is important to know that the schools are teams. Our classified staff–technicians, secretaries, custodians, accompanists, gardeners, and so many other workers–are the people who enable teachers to teach and students to learn. While the state's budget problems have whittled away at classified numbers for several years, our community should know that a school is more than its teachers. Let us honor KBEV support person Jon Cherney for what he was: a classified employee who gave his very best for the students of Beverly High. Joel Pressman ****** Thank you for running the article on the 1st Civility award given by the Human Relations Commission for the City of Beverly Hills. Ronald Boze exemplifies the ideas, values and culture that constitutes the rich tapestry that make up “Beverly Hills” and the great City it is today. Mr. Boze is a true reflection of civility at its best! Sharona R. Nazarian
