November 2008, it was promised the tax rate would not exceed $49.71 per $100,000 in Assessed Value, which would not increase taxes. Assessed Value is the dollar amount given to a property for tax purposes. It was assumed in 2008 that the AV would rise 5.77 percent in 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 and then 4.5 percent after. In actuali-

ty it rose 1.75 percent from 20092011. The original bond measure broke bond sales out over four sales in 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018. If nothing were to change in the bond program, sales would take place in 2016, 2024 and 2033 with a 7-7.5 percent interest rate. The assumed interest rate was 5.51 percent. The Board of Education will hold a study session on bond financing on Aug. 3 to discuss the possibility of increasing the tax (see ‘BOND SALES,’ page 15)

A

erry attended Chaminade Prep, a private Catholic High School in Cheviot Hills, where he served as student-body president. Among his favorite classes were civics and debate which fueled a life-long love of politics and history. Terry was especially fond of the works of Winston Churchill and was very proud to own two first edition copies of "Mr. Broderick's Army."

erry graduated from the University of Southern California with a B.S. in speech and general management. Entering the workforce, Terry joined Republic Corporation, an NYSE-listed conglomerate, where he served as Treasurer for nearly a decade. He left Republic in 1976 to follow his passion for politics, serving on the national staff for the reelection of President Gerald Ford. After Ford's narrow loss to Jimmy Carter, Terry was approached to join the "gaming industry."

T

hile Terry had a long and remarkable career in the gaming industry having served in senior executive positions at Caesars World, Inc. and MGM Grand Inc., he wasn't certain if it was the right mix at first. In a 2007 MarketWatch interview, Terry said, "They said they had a very exciting opportunity -- great company, great people -- for me, and they talked to me for about an hour, but wouldn't tell me the industry. Finally I asked and they said, 'gaming.' I said, 'gaming?' You mean gambling? I don't know about that."

W

B

erry joined Caesars World in 1977 as Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer, was named Senior Vice President in 1978 and elected Executive Vice President in 1979. He was President and Chief Operating Officer and a member of the Board of Directors of that company from 1981 to 1995.

T

erry was instrumental in giving the gaming industry added credibility on Wall Street. In a 2007 USA Today story, former Caesars World CEO Bill McElnea noted that Terry was well-spoken and well-dressed and had the financial smarts to impress bankers and investors. "We were building a company, and we needed the respect of people back East," McElnea told USA Today. "Business people had confidence in Terry. He opened things up."

T

fter 18 years as a senior executive of Caesars World, Inc., Kirk Kerkorian recruited Terry to MGM Grand, Inc. in 1995, as President & Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors. Later that same year he was named Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and went on to oversee the historic acquisitions first of

A

mong other contributions to the growth and development of the gaming industry, Terry was most proud of his role in the development of MGM’s widely recognized diversity and inclusion programs. Terry strongly believed in the value of every individual and always respected the contributions and beliefs of people from every circumstance and culture.

erry’s leadership in pioneering inclusion in our industry was a bold and courageous move at a time when few realized the tremendous importance of diversity in the globalization of our industry and the world economy,” noted current MGM CEO Jim Murren. “We can all learn to be better people by emulating his values personally and professionally.” Terry was very proud and humbled by the accolades and attention he received over the years. In 1992, he was named “Alumni of the Year” by the USC School of Business Administration. He was appointed by the Speaker of the House in 1997 to serve on the National Gambling Impact Study Commission. In 2000 he was inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame and in 2001 was the recipient of Casino Journal’s Lifetime Achievement Award. He was the first recipient of the Nevada Governor’s “Philanthropist of the Year” Award presented at the Governor’s Black-Tie Gala charity event in 2003.

utside of his beloved family, Terry's greatest passions were for education, politics and horses.

New BHUSD Superintendent Gary Woods Reveals His 90-Day Plan For The District Three months is not a long time, but it’s the amount new

Superintendent Gary Woods needs to figure out what issues

are important to the BHUSD community and what needs to

be worked on for the BHUSD to be successful. How Woods

plans to gather that knowledge is laid out in his 90-day plan, which was passed out at the Board of Education meeting Monday. According to the plan, Woods will use the 90 days to conduct a “listening tour,” during which he will consult various individuals and groups throughout the community. His plan details the purpose of talking to them and activities that may be conducted with each group. Woods’ plan includes asking each group or individual the following questions: 1. What (does he) need to know about the BHUSD? 2. What actions must (he) take to be successful in the BHUSD? 3. If (the individual or group was) the superintendent, what would be the first action (they) would take to improve the district? Woods plans to meet with groups including the Board of Education, the BHUSD office team, site specific leadership, employee association representatives, BHEF, community members, elected officials and civic representatives. At the end of the 90-day period, Woods plans to deliver a revised vision and action plan to the BHUSD Board for approval. Woods said he has conducted 45 interviews thus far and aims for at least 100 interviews by the end of the 90 days. According to Woods’ plan, through this process he intends to craft a set of strategic goals and objectives that will support students in being highly engaged and successful. “(Achieving) excellence is a continuous process, it will never end,” Woods said. “We’re just going to keep fighting for that end, day in and day out. It’s an exciting process and the group who benefits the most is our students.”

Last Beverly Hills Neutra House In Jeopardy By Marla Schevker The last remaining Beverly Hills house designed by World War II Architect Richard Neutra has been put into jeopardy after owner Soda Partners, LLC. applied for a demolition permit last week. The demolition permit was not granted because Soda had not completed all of the precautions necessary before demolition, but that doesn’t mean the house is safe. The Kronish house at 9439

Sunset Blvd. was built in the 1950s, the last of three designed by Neutra in Beverly Hills. Conditions placed prior to giving a demolition permit include removing all asbestos, capping all sewers and preparing the site for a construction /demolition crew. Each requirement must be met prior to demolition. According to Cindy Olnick of the L.A. Conservancy, the

HOW DO YOU FEEL? USC Hospitals Ranked Among Top In Nation In 10 Specialty Areas USC University Hospital and USC Norris Cancer Hospital have placed among the best hospitals in the nation in the 2011-12 U.S. News & World Report magazine’s rankings. USC-affiliated Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center also was ranked. USC’s Keck School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, staffed exclusively by USC faculty physicians, was named earlier this year to the magazine’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” Honor Roll. The latest rankings, annually published by U.S. News the past 22 years, showcase 720 hospitals out of about 5,000 hospitals nationwide. Each is ranked among the country’s top hospitals in at least one medical specialty and/or ranked among the best hospitals in its metro area. USC University Hospital ranked in eight specialty areas, up two specialty areas from last year. The new specialty areas include: • 48th in gastroenterology • 30th in geriatrics Other specialty areas include: • 34th in gynecology • 25th in neurology and neurosurgery • 9th in ophthalmology (USC Department of Ophthalmology at the Doheny Eye Institute) • 24th in orthopedics • 32nd in pulmonology • 18th in urology This year, only 140 of the 4,825 hospitals the magazine evaluated performed well enough to rank in even one specialty. University Hospital was also ranked as “high performing” in two specialty areas in

the U.S. News & World Report metro area rankings for hospitals: Ear, nose and throat, and nephrology. Norris Cancer Hospital ranked 48th among cancer hospitals and as “high performing” in nephrology in the Metro Area rankings. Rancho Los Amigos ranked 18th in rehabilitation. “We are proud to be included among the nation’s top hospitals in this annual ranking,” said Mitch Creem, CEO of USC University Hospital and USC Norris Cancer Hospital. “These rankings are a testament to the compassion, dedication and professionalism exhibited by our staff and faculty physicians, every day.” “These rankings of our hospitals are a nod to the daily commitment to excellence by Keck School faculty physicians, nurses and hospital staff,” said Keck School Dean Carmen A. Puliafito, M.D., M.B.A. “We’re pleased for all of our faculty honored by these rankings.” The core mission of Best Hospitals is to help guide patients who need an especially high level of care because of a difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age. To be considered for the rankings, a hospital must be a teaching hospital, be affiliated with a medical school, have at least 200 beds, or have at least 100 beds and at least four of eight key medical technologies available, such as a PET/CT scanner and certain precise radiation therapies.

Surgeons’ Civility In Operating Room Benefits Patients, Reduces Costs, Cedars’ Doctor Says A surgeon’s behavior in the operating room affects patient outcomes, healthcare costs, medical errors and patient and staff satisfaction, says a commentary in the July issue of Archives Of Surgery. In an increasingly rude society, the lack of civility has degraded all aspects of life, even the surgical suite, says the article’s primary author, Dr. Andrew S. Klein, MBA, a liver surgeon and the director of the Cedars-Sinai Comprehensive Transplant Center. “Often, surgeons get hired on the basis of their knowledge, training and technical accomplishments,” says Klein, the Esther and Mark Schulman Chair in Surgery and Transplantation Medicine. “But operating rooms are social environments where everyone must work together for the patients’ benefit. When a surgeon, who is in the position of power, is rude and belittles the rest of the staff, it

Dr. Andrew S. Klein

affects everything.” Klein and co-author Pier M. Forni, PhD, cite numerous studies to demonstrate the links between rudeness in healthcare and how it affects patient care: • A study of 300 operations in which surgeons were ranked for their behavior shows a correlation between civility in the operating room

and fewer post-operative deaths and complications. • Because co-workers tend to avoid a doctor who belittles them, 75 percent of hospital pharmacists and nurses say they try to avoid difficult physicians, even if they have a question about the doctors’ medication orders. • Hospitals with high nursing turnover generally have increased medical errors and poorer clinical outcomes. Klein and Forni suggest high turnover should be expected when one survey reports more than two-thirds of nurses assert that physicians verbally abuse them at least once every three months. During operations, surgeons cannot seek consensus on whether to employ staples or sutures. But it is bad medicine for them, for example, to berate a technician for wrongly handing them a clip if they, instead, have asked for a clamp, says Klein.

‘Carmageddon’ Fails To Materialize The 405 Freeway is once again the nation’s busiest freeway after last weekend’s closure that had been expected to produce a regional traffic nightmare to be known as “Carmageddon,” but instead dramatically reduced region-wide traffic and the number of accidents. Ten miles of the 405 between the Ventura (101) Freeway in Sherman Oaks and the Santa Monica (10) Freeway on L.A.’s Westside was to have been closed for 53 hours, but work went faster than anticipated. The worst-case scenario arising from the closure envisioned traffic jams throughout the region, with residents ignoring pleas to stay off the roads and searching for clear routes between the San Fernando Valley and the Westside as an alternative to the shut 405 Freeway, typically used by 500,000 vehicles on weekends. But with motorists displaying a surprising willingness to heed weeks of warnings, the traffic jams Looking northbound up the empty 405 from never materialized.

Getting Creative with Crochet By Andrea Stern

W

hen it comes to Oscar De La Renta’s fashion shows, they never disappoint. His spring 2011 line was also no exception. His beautiful pastel dresses, bold black and white evening gowns, and printed frocks all exuded elegance and sophistication. One of the trends the designer embraced in his collection that made some of the looks stand out from the others was his incorporation of crochet.

D

e La Renta implemented the art form into many pieces, showing how versatile crocheted garments can be especially during the warmer months. From a long white dress to a colorful suit, the designer demonstrates the many creative ways one can wear crochet.

Fashion News & Notes More Gold for David Yurman Jewelry company David Yurman will be increasing its usage of gold in its upcoming collections. In the past, merely 20 to 25 percent of the pieces were comprised of gold, but in the future, the metal will make up about 70 percent of the company’s offerings. 317 North Rodeo Drive WWD Hermès Sales Boost in the Second Quarter Hermès International just announced that their second quarter sales were up 17.9 percent in the second quarter. This increase “should allow [Hermes] to post full-year revenue growth of 12 to 14 percent at constant exchange rates and another near-record high operating profit

margin in 2011.” The sale of ready-towear and other accessories in the United States and China contributed to the boost. 434 North Rodeo Drive WWD Jose Eber Opens New Salon This past month Jose Eber opened his new hair salon, which is located in the former Christie's space on Camden Drive.

LANNI (Continued from page 1)

Anthony and Lucille; daughter Marylou and son Richard (both BHHS alumni); and twins Michael and Terry–lived on Bedford Drive before building a new home in Trousdale Estates. The twins attended B.H. Catholic School (now Good Shepherd) and Chaminade High School in Cheviot Hills. Terry Lanni later graduated from USC and joined Century City-based Republic Corp, serving that entity as treasurer. After spending several months on the unsuccessful reelection campaign of President Gerald Ford, he became CFO/treasurer for another Century City concern, Caesars World, Inc.–thus his entry into gaming. Because of his personal demeanor and financial acumen, Lanni is credited with giving the formerly shunned gaming industry acceptance from Wall Street bankers. He personally oversaw the building and staffing of the company’s Atlantic City opera-

proposed 144 parking spaces and 859 square feet of indoor and 140 square feet of outside restaurant space. The Planning Commission had several initial comments on the proposed project. Planning Commission Chair Dan Yukelson said they were concerned the height of the project would create a “wall effect” and block the views from the neighboring Montage and public garden. “The last thing we want is to be looking toward City Hall and see a wall blocking the view,” Yukelson said. “I think that the developer could make the right adjustments to the project and come up with some kind of compromise on the height.” The commission also requested that environmental

FAC (Continued from page 5)

A part of the process, the district’s master planning firm DeJong Richter and the district were supposed to hold community meetings, with both the FAC, the Citizens Oversight Committee and other community members. These meetings were to ensure the community would be “engaged” and ultimately “supportive” of the projects the BHUSD planned for Measure E. Brown said the meetings have diminished overtime. “It appears to us that these planned community meetings have decreased and consultants have not actively engaged the entire gamut of stakeholders,” Brown said. Brown specifically noted

tions. Lanni eventually became president of Caesars, remaining there for 18 years until that company was acquired by ITT in 1995. Intending to take a few months’ hiatus, less than a month later he joined MGM Grand, Inc. as president/CEO and then chairman. He remained there until retiring in Nov. 2008. During his tenure, Lanni led the company through its acquisition of Mirage Resorts and the Mandalay Resort Group, the construction of City Center in Las Vegas, and its entry into Macau, now considered the gambling capital of the world. Lanni always claimed the best thing he did in his life was marrying the former Debbie Hower of San Marino in 1979. The couple met four years earlier while he was serving as president of The Bachelors, a century-old Los Angeles’ social organization. They have two sons both of whom have followed their father’s career paths: Sean, 27, of Las Vegas (gaming) and Patrick,

25, of San Francisco (finance). The Lannis have developed a passion for thoroughbreds and own or co-own with partners more than 20 horses including Game On Dude, winner of the legendary Santa Anita Handicap in March. (They also won a Breeders Cup with Silic.) Among his innumerable honors, Terry Lanni was named “Philanthropist of the Year” and USC “Alumnus of the Year”; inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame; and served on the National Gambling Impact Study Commission. He serves on various boards for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation; USC’s Keck School of Medicine and Marshall School of Business; Santa Clara University; UNLV Foundation; and the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Lanni Family Cancer Research Fund under the direction of Dr. Heinze-Josef Lenz at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.

studies be done to ascertain the impact on traffic, parking, site access and circulation review. Yukelson said he believed it would be fantastic to have this type of movie theater in Beverly Hills. “I think there is an approvable project there if they come back with the right sort of solution,” Yukelson said. “Beverly Hills definitely would like to see this built in our City, but we have to have the right project. It’s a destination business and will add to the already vibrant night life we have on North Cañon.” Although iPic has eight locations nationwide, the Beverly Hills location would be most like its Arizona theater in Scottsdale. According to iPic VP of Marketing Mark Mulcahy, iPic offers everything the traditional cinema experience offers but better. iPic offers an extensive se-

lection of beverages and food, all designed for consumption without utensils during the movie watching experience. They provide micro suede recliners complete with pillows and blankets. Mulcahy said they heard everything the Planning Commission recommended and intend to put it to use. “This is the beginning of the process,” Mulcahy said. “Now we’re regrouping internally and formulating answers and solutions to the concerns that they raised. We’re 100 percent committed to this site.” An iPic theater in West Los Angeles could be a game changer of the community, Mulcahy said and iPic isn’t placing a timeline on how long it will take to get the project right. “We’re excited about Beverly Hills,” Mulcahy said.

information has been gathered that would have implications for the district’s educational goals. While he did not cite the information, he did mention the K-8 structure the BHUSD currently has. Although studies may tell him it would be beneficial to do otherwise, the FAC was told Tracy Richter, of DeJong Richter, was told not to consider any other structure. Board Vice President Brian Goldberg said the board never gave direction to anyone, FAC or consultant, to revisit the issue of a stand-alone middle school. “The community has debated the issue of a dedicated middle school many times and keeps coming to the same conclusion: keep the current K-8 structure,” Goldberg said. “The

prevailing education direction on this issue is more districts across the country are moving towards the K-8 model.” Overall, Brown said the FAC came to the three conclusions: 1. The school board is not following the process to which was agreed in the first community meeting 2. There is not the transparency that is needed and promised. 3. The district is bypassing important steps such as the strategic/business plan. Brown said the FAC hopes the district will follow through on the plan and processes originally proposed so the outcome will provide the facilities needed and meet the goals of the community as a whole.

NEW UNIVERSITY—Efrem Harkam and the Luxe Hotel hosted a reception for Ariel University Center. School officials were visiting California to promote and fundraise for the center, as well as forge strategic relationships for the newest university in Israel, the first to be built in Israel in 40 years.

STAFF COSTS (Continued from page 1)

By law, all public employee pay and benefits are matters of public record. “Salary” turns out to be only about half the cost of each employee. In addition to the actual cash costs to city taxpayers, every employee of Beverly Hills is allowed every other Friday or Monday off, excepting only city manager Jeff Kolin and assistant city manager Mahdi Aluzri. Even executives paid over $250,000 get every other Friday or Monday off and are paid “overtime” in addition (for high paid staff, overtime is called “Administrative Leave

He was on the Beverly Hills Superintendent’s Advisory Council from 2001 to 2002, the El Rodeo Site Council from 2002 to 2006 and the Citizens Oversight Committee for District Bond Funds from 2002 to 2004. Licht also participated in Team Beverly Hills in 1999 and currently serves on the Traffic & Parking Commission. Licht and Lisa, his wife of 20 years, have three children in the district. Lucy is a senior at Beverly High and will be the Board of Education student board member in the fall. Danny is a sophomore at Beverly High and Joey is in 6th grade at El Rodeo.

Earned.”) All leave can be cashed in. The records produced to The Courier by city attorney Larry Wiener confirm earlier reports by The Courier that each city employee can have up to 13 weeks paid time off each year and more. Police and fire are treated differently and have much higher benefits. For example, a fire captain costs taxpayers between $250,000 and $320,000 per year. A fire battalion chief costs $277,000 to $329,000. Regular staff members, such as Recreation Dept. head Steve Zoet costs $225,000 per year, with four weeks paid

vacation, eight sick days and three weeks “administrative leave” time. In addition, he receives every other Friday or Monday off. Librarian Nancy HuntCoffey costs $210,000 plus the same time off and overtime as Zoet. Today’s Courier contains the first half of the City’s disclosure of actual staff costs listed by employee. Next week The Courier will publish the remainder. The data is self-explanatory. The Courier blocked out the names of rank-and-file police officers and sergeants at the request of the Beverly Hills Police Officers Association.

“I have an enormous amount of respect for the district,” Licht said. “It was very good to me and it has been very good to my children.” With a BA in economics from University of California Berkeley and a masters of fine arts from USC, Licht is currently president of the Licht/Mueller Film Corporation. There he has produced eight major motion pictures, each grossing more than $500 million in worldwide box office receipts. Because of those experiences and his knowledge from serving on various councils and commissions, Licht said he has a lot to bring to the board. “I have 30-plus years experience in the film business, which bears some similarities colleague Dr. Julian Gold in future weeks on such controversial issues as the proposed massive new center at Roxbury Park, the MTA tunnel under Beverly Hills High School, forcing the removal of the Venoco oil wells on school district property, and other matters. Patch agreed to run the column with no editorial oversight, making it "Propaganda Announced from The City Hall." The matter was never brought to a public council meeting. It remains to be seen whether the city council will

as far as negotiating with various factions and bringing people together,” Licht said. “I have my experience of growing up here, my experience of being a parent and my experience with community service.” Licht said he is running for school board for the opportunity to give back to the community and try to make it even better. “We are at a pivotal moment for our district, our residents and our children,” Licht said. “It’s time to stop looking back at how it was and begin dreaming about how we want it to be. I am running because I believe my involvement with Beverly Hills, from childhood to adulthood, my business skills, my ideas and my passion can help move our district forward.” now cut or reduce its expenditures on its own website, www.beverlyhills.org, in light of its new reliance on the tiny AOL site. Brucker has told The Courier that the motive for using AOL/Patch is to circumvent The Courier which today reveals city salary and benefit data. The Courier has always welcomed letters to the editor from city officials and has never refused one. The Courier's web traffic dwarfs that of AOL/Patch for Beverly Hills according to Google Analytics.

first quarter. This increase was driven by second quarter loan growth of $300.2 million or 2 percent to $14 billion. “Our financial performance for the second quarter resulted in improvement in almost every key financial ratio in comparison to the first quar-

rate and other solutions to the financing problems. However, it was revealed in the study session the 2010/2011 bond tax rate exceeded the rate promised to voters, at $50.19. Board consultants said without issuing additional bonds, the average tax rate is estimated at $57.90. Going forward, the BHUSD has several options. It could utilize Bond Anticipation Notes, which would give the district access to the bond funds up to five years earlier than the actual issue date of each bond series. This would have negative impact on the BHUSD’s bond rating. Currently BHUSD received a AA1 from Moody’s and

The District could also increase the tax rate from $49.78 up to $60, the maximum rate allowed through Proposition 39. However, this would go against a promise made to the voters at the time Measure E passed. “Our Board of Education, with input from stakeholders throughout the community will need to work together to develop a financial plan moving forward to upgrade our schools,” Cherniss said. “I have no doubt that under the leadership of our new superintendent, Dr. Woods, that we will put together a plan that will provide enough funding to build state of the art schools. “

Financial Planner Frances Schloss Dies At 75 Frances Adele Byers Schloss, a Beverly Hills resident since 1968, died Monday of complications from ovarian cancer at age 75. The Oklahoma City native was born on Oct. 20, 1935—her family being pioneers of that state who settled there in the 1890s while still Indian territory. She graduated cum laude from Harvard/Radcliff where she met her husband Stephen E. Schloss, who was offered a position in the growing California aerospace industry. The couple was active in the Beverly Hills’ community. She joined Beverly Vista PTA, which her five children attended (before entering BHHS), and took a leadership role with the

Harvard/Radcliffe Alumni Club of Southern, interviewing high school seniors on behalf of Harvard. After teaching at Ramban High School, she began a career as a stockbroker and financial planner in 1973 with E.F. Hutton’s Beverly Hills office and rose to the level of senior VP, certified financial planner and insurance coordinator at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney here. She mentored many student interns from BHHS who were interested in learning about careers in finance. Schloss taught evening classes in financial planning at the

Beverly Hills Adult School for 25 years, was a member of Team Beverly Hills, and wrote a weekly financial column. She was active in her volunteer efforts for Beth Jacob Congregation and Young Israel of North Beverly Hills. She and her husband funded the Schloss Center of Communication Sciences in Israel at Jerusalem College of Technology. She leaves her husband Stephen, who is first VP-investments at Merrill Lynch in B.H.; sons Hal (Lenny), Mike (Elise), and Bruce (Chana); daughters Marian (Jon), and Judy (Aaron); and 15 grandchildren. Donations in her name may be made to Beth Jacob Congregation, Young Israel of North Beverly Hills, and others.

Small M.D., director of the center, who is also a worldrenowned memory and Alzheimer's disease expert. Sharon Linkletter, who cofounded the center 20 years ago, presented the Art Linkletter Lifetime Achievement award to Collins, who began his career in the restaurant business 59 years ago with one hamburger stand. He went on to become one of the largest franchisees of Kentucky Fried Chicken and owner of the Sizzler. In 1968, he formed Collins Foods International and remains chairman emeritus. Dr. Straatsma received his Distinguished Scholar in Science & Medicine honor fromBartley Mondino, M.D. Jane Fonda was presented

He was a retired senior executive with City National Bank and, before that, Wells Fargo. According to his daughter, Marg a r e t Wasserstein, services will be Leonard Wasserstein held at noon Sunday at Hillside Memorial Park. The family has asked in lieu of flowers, donations in his name be welcomed to the Beverly Hills Rotary Community Foundation or to the Rotary International Foundation.

the house. There is no way to stop the demolition once the permit has been approved. Beverly Hills currently has no protection for its historic resources. “Most cities are really proud when they have a house like this, they would want to save it,” Dishman said. “Once this house is gone, it’s gone.” Author of two books on Richard Neutra and restoration consultant, Barbara Lamprecht said the Kronish house is one of Neutra’s largest houses in North America. He stands out from other architects based on how he weaves outdoor and indoor spaces together. “Neutra believed strongly that we needed access to nature and we needed simple functional spaces that were adjacent to nature and invited nature in,” Lamprecht said. “The house is a big instrument for well being.” Dishman said one of the problems in preserving historical buildings is the City’s last of a historic preservation ordinance. If Beverly Hills residents are interest-

ed in saving houses like the Kronish house, Dishman said they can do something to help. “Residents should let the City Council know they care about the architectural legacy in Beverly Hills and want to see it preserved,” Dishman said. “The City is in the process of adopting a Mills Act program and we really applaud their efforts. But, there also needs to be a (way) to stop demolitions or at least have a breathing period to see if there is an (alternative).” Next week, the Planning Commission will vote on a resolution to recommend the Mills Act Program to the City Council. Brought up by John Mirisch, the Mills Act Program is a way to incentivize the preservation, maintenance and rehabilitation of historic properties through a reduction in property taxes. If approved, the pilot program would commence on Jan. 1, 2012 and run for two years. No more than five single-family homes or theaters will be accepted a year, totaling a potential 10 properties. If the program is successful at the end of two years, the City Council can adopt it for all buildings in Beverly Hills.

REVEALING FACTS AND RETALIATION Today’s Courier is guaranteed to win no friends at City Hall. Already, Mayor Barry Brucker and City Manager Jeff Kolin have started using AOL’s local ’Patch” website to circumvent this newspaper, Councilmembers John Mirisch and Lili Bosse, and its own website. Why? Why would the City of Beverly Hills try to use a struggling website instead of its own website that they have spent millions of dollars creating and maintaining? We say its name should stand for “Propaganda Announced [from] The City Hall.” Maybe it’s because of the city employee cost data published today for the first time. While Beverly Hills posts its staff “salaries” it has never before actually disclosed what each employee costs taxpayers. We are shocked by what we learned. Not only are they paid top dollar, they receive amazing benefits and don’t even work a quarter of the year. City staff uses a combination of different pay types to boost the published “salary” by nearly double. When you ask the City for staff costs, you get back “salary.” As each of you read for yourselves, that is only the starting point. The City adds overtime, sick time, 9/80 day time, administrative leave, auto allowance, deferred compensation, health benefits, retirement pay . . . and who knows what else. The end result is that “salary” is only a small portion of what taxpayers are paying. Why did it take The Courier three California Public Records Act demands, plus the threat of litigation, to get this information? We were told the City did not have the information in the format we requested. However, they only told us that after we threatened to sue. Now that we see the amounts, we know why. Keep in mind that the City pays 100 percent of the cost of retirement—no employee contributes anything. Why does the City do that? With real unemployment in California more than 22 percent, are these salaries and benefits needed to obtain fine employees? What is going on? This is obviously not a new development. Has every previous city council member known of these costs? Please read these numbers for yourselves. We truly value the services of City of Beverly Hills staff. We really do, but these numbers . . . . LETTERS TO THE EDITOR POLICY The Courier welcomes letters. To be considered for publication, remember: (1) shorter is better; (2) refrain from personal attacks or insults–we wish to share rational points of view, not invective; (3) keep to one topic; (4) and please do not send us letters which have appeared in any other publication.

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE 100 SENATORS AND 435 REPRESENTATIVES OF THE 112TH CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Since you are a paid employee of the citizens of the USÅ, of whom I am proud to be one, I am under the impression that you are working for me. I believe your annual salary begins at $169,300. with certain officers receiving more, up to $212,100 for the Speaker of the House. These numbers are impressive, compared with the median annual income for men of $45,113. and $35,102 for women. However, the Congressional salaries are far less than most of the members were earning before being elected, and therefore represent a patriotic sacrifice for the privilege of performing public service. Most restfully and humbly, I ask you now:

“Why aren’t you doing your job? You and your predecessors in the executive and legislative branches of our government got us into the current financial mess, how can you sit on your hands for even one hour without striving mightily, compromising judiciously, and legislating wisely to get us out of it before we become the laughing-stock of the other nations and Joe P. Public goes broke?” What are you and I, we citizens, doing to urge them on? Are we calling our representatives, e-mailing our president, writing our senators, screaming our demands and suggestions so that they are aware they are not serving in a vacuum, and that we are angry and fearful for our futures? Respectfully yours, Rabbi Jacob Pressman

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR You know, I keep reading about having the Metro stop at Constellation so that people there will take it downtown. I have to ask, where and why? We're told that people will take it for meetings, concerts and plays. Well, I’ve worked downtown for over a decade and can tell you it’s not going to happen. Tickets to the Music Center or the Disney? Sure.Get off at Civic Center station and climb Bunker Hill then trudge back down at 11 p.m. for the return trip. Meeting at Wells Fargo Center? Great. Exit at Pershing Square and slog up Bunker Hill, then stumble back down for the return trip. Insuperable desire for Langer’s that Nate n’ Al’s, won’t quench? Get off at MacArthur Park and walk a block. Which is of course impossible, because no one will walk a block to the subway. Reality check: I’d bet that 98 percent of the people who will be taking the subway will be those on public transport now. These magic “Conquest Riders” are smoke and mirrors, especially since I would bet that 98 percent of them live more than one block from a planned subway station. Tom Pease ******* If you want to understand why so many Americans are looking for work, here is an example I ran into today.

My Time-Warner Cable service needed repair and a very solicitous fellow from T-W took the call. After a short conversation I asked: “Where are you located?” When I got off the floor I was sure I had misunderstood him so I asked the same question again and received the same answer...Argentina. How many people have you spoken to who are in Argentina?

The sad story is it will take several days to repair the TV service and I will probably never speak to anyone in Argentina again. That particular phone call could have been handled in this country and so could millions of other jobs sent overseas. You can’t tell me the federal government cannot make it worthwhile (tax wise) to keep those jobs here. Herbert Wallerstein
