UCLA’s Marilyn Hilton MS Achievement Center Celebrates 10th Year Of Service Monday, July 11 was celebrated as the 10th anniversary of UCLA’s Marilyn Hilton MS Achievement Center. Founded in June 2001, the center was established through a collaboration between the UCLA Department of Neurology, then chaired by Dr. Robert C. Collins, and the Southern California chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society; and was funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and the Flora L. Thornton Foundation. “Our involvement came about because of the tremendous synergy between UCLA and the MS Society,” said Steven M. Hilton, president/CEO of the Hilton Foundation. “The foundation has been interested in MS since my mother suffered from it for many years. Many of those suffering from MS face stressful challenges as they go about their day-to-day life. This center provides practical solutions within a supportive group to help deal with those challenges. In her remarks at the celebration, Dr. Barbara Giesser, professor of neurology and the center’s medical director, said the center was established after health experts noticed a gap in services for people struggling with the disorder. “The idea was to empower people, and one of our early efforts was the Reach to Achieve Program, designed for people who have been living with MS for some period of time.” It’s common, she noted, that people with MS will face challenges related to their symptoms, often including difficulty with mobility, memory changes and depression. The philosophy of the center and its primary goal, Executive Director Stephanie Fisher said, is that people with MS can take control of their health and well-being with the help of educational and experiential programs. These include the Reach to Achieve

Program that focuses on fitness, both individual and group exercise, including yoga and Tai Chi; emotional wellness through the use of art therapy and supp o r t groups, cognitive Steven Hilton makes re- stimulation marks at The Marilyn Hilton to exercise MS Achievement Center at the mind UCLA 10th anniversary cel- and work ebration. on thinking skills, therapeutic recreation in the form of games, music therapy, journaling, gardening, and other activities designed to provide socialization and challenge cognition; and health education, including disease and symptom management, nutrition and general health practices. The Living Well with MS Program, designed for those newly diagnosed with the disease, introduces participants to strategies and tools to develop a lifestyle program that works for them. “One of the biggest success stories of the center,” said Dr. John Mazziotta, chair of the neurology department, “is how it has served as a template for other centers in the community.” The center’s programs are now used by 35 healthcare partners across Southern California, and a new MS program center will open in New York City in the fall, based on the Achievement Center’s Living Well with MS Program.

JWCI’s MORAN WINS NEW APPOINTMENT— Christopher J.

Mayor, Manager Meet With DSA Mayor Barry Brucker and City Manager Jeff Kolin made a “hush/hush” trip to Sacramento to meet with the Director of the Division of State Architect (DSA) about the impact an MTA tunnel under Beverly Hills High School would have on the campus.

were also not informed of the meeting. Brucker told The Courier that Director Howard Smith said that no tunnel has ever been dug under an existing school building in California, which confirms previous reports in The Courier from information supplied by District experts. The statement also contradicts public statements by L.A. County Supervisor Zev (see ‘DSA,’ page 17)

TMCC Tutoring Program Now Part Of Community Services By Marla Schevker The former Maple Counseling Center Tutoring program has found a new home in the City of Beverly Hills Community Services Department. Renamed the “Beverly Hills Academic Afterschool Tutoring Program,” it is still supervised by Adrienne Weise and will be held at Horace Mann and Beverly Vista schools. It will continue offering tutoring for student grades

K-8 for $15 a session. The first session is a 10-week fall session. Students will have the option of continue through winter and spring session or signing up for tutoring on an as-needed basis. Weise said there was an “outpouring” of support from the community when The Maple Counseling Center canceled the program in June because of the economic downturn. (see ‘TUTORING,’ page 19)

By Marla Schevker Sean Buss, stepson of Los Angeles Lakers’ owner Dr. Jerry Buss, was sentenced last month for attacking a Beverly Hills parking officer on South Beverly Drive in March 2010. According to Los Angeles Superior Court spokesman Matt Krasnowski, Buss entered a guilty plea for felony battery, which allowed him to take part in a diversion program. Buss will have to complete 200 hours of community labor, 26 anger-management sessions and must pay $96,966.16 in restitution to parking officer

Kevin Ashwill. Buss will have until Dec. 15 to complete the diversion program. If completed, the felony charge will be wiped from his record. As The Courier has previously reported, Buss lifted Ashwill off the ground at about 4 p.m. on March 31, 2010, in a bear hug and body slammed him to the pavement requiring hospitalization, according to witnesses. The attack was seen by approximately 20 people. The assault came after the officer told Buss he was citing

him for parking his car illegally in a red, no parking zone. Ashwill told The Courier that while he is getting better, it has been a long process that has involved surgery and physical therapy. He also said he felt frustrated by Buss’ acceptance into the diversion program. “I am frustrated by the outcome,” Ashwill said. “I think having (the felony charge) expunged from his record is a travesty for what I’ve gone through.” Buss’ lawyer David Chodos declined to comment.

Five-Year BHUSD Food Services Deal Signed By Marla Schevker At a special meeting last Friday, the Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education voted 5-0 to allow Chartwells School Dining Services to provide a food services program for the BHUSD. After a consistent loss in revenue from the program, the BHUSD will now contract out the food-management services and administration of the food service program. The BHUSD has entered a five-year term with Chartwells. Chartwells will take financial responsibility for the program, reimbursing the district for any

food service program related costs. The BHUSD will be responsible for utilities costs, but Chartwells will pay for everything else including food, supplies and reimbursement of labor costs incurred by the district. The BHUSD food program budget for year one will include $650,000 in labor costs, $10,000 for the Lunchbox Software System and $45,000 for Vendsight vending machines. The prices of meals served at the BHUSD will be no less than the current prices in the district. Chartwells is currently setting up to begin serving in the fall.

WELCOME TO USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN—Sailors Jessica Yarber and Casey Hogg on the flight deck that’s utilized by the ship’s 74 aircraft. Courier photos by Brenton Garen

By Brenton Garen As Navy Week comes to a close in Los Angeles on Sunday, many of its sailors who live in the Southland are once again saying goodbye to their families as they prepare to set sail on the USS Abraham Lincoln. This week, The Courier toured the ship, one of a handful docked in San Pedro, which have been open for public tours aimed at giving locals the opportunity to learn more about the Navy. Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Laura Blanco is an 11-year Navy veteran from Highland Park who calls the ship home with up to 4,400 other sailors when it is deployed for operations. “I love serving my country and making sure my shipmates are well taken care of to make sure they can accomplish the mission at hand,” Blanco said. “It’s just like being on a big city. We have everything we need to survive and to live comfortably.” Blanco said she was excited to

spend time with her family this past week as it is the first time she has seen them since last July. While she has only been aboard USS Lincoln since March, she has previously served on USS Peleliu, where she has travelled to the Philippines, Solomon Island, Tokyo and Guam. “There’s a lot of opportunity with the Navy and they can definitely find it worthwhile,” she said. Captain John D. Alexander, Lincoln’s commanding officer, said there were currently 2,845 sailors assigned to ship. He said a further 1,500 sailors are added when the air wing was aboard. “On top of that, we have 74 aircraft that’s refueling with jet fuel every day,” he said. “We carry about 3.2 million gallons of jet fuel and then we’ll refuel the ship about once a week when we are out operating.” For more information about the Navy’s weekend events, visit www.navyweek.org/losangeles2011.

WWD Trina Turk Set to Launch Dressier Line Los Angeles clothing designer Trina Turk will introduce dressier pieces to her collection, which is set to debut for holiday. The dresses will still maintain “Turk’s rtw (ready to wear) aesthetic of a graphic print of unique fabrication in a simple sil-

WWD Bulgari Reports Increase in Profit Bulgari has earned $13.2 million dollars in the first half as a result of surging sales mainly in China. This is a relief for the jewelry company who lost $9.9 million dollars during the same period last year. Bulgari attributes the sales of their “high jewelry, including the B.zero1 line and its extension in ceramics” to helping them increase their earnings. WWD

Frances Allen Desert Roundup

Everyone knows the truism, “money talks.” The most recent and blatant example of the power and, in my mind, the misuse of the purse, occurred in the Desert recently, regarding the former Bob Hope Classic golf tournament. That’s right, the “former” Bob Hope Classic. Henceforth, at least for the next eight years, the Hope Classic will be known as the Humana Challenge, after it’s well endowed heath care provider sponsor. For the past 52 years, there has been a “classic” golf tournament in the Desert with Bob Hope’s name part of its title since 1965. But, Bob Hope passed on to that great 19th hole in the sky, and his tournament wallowed financially after thentitle sponsor, Chrysler, was driven into bankruptcy and ceased its sponsorship with the Bob Hope tournament after the 2009 event. However, the reality is that golf tournaments are not run on celebrity alone. While use of a famous name can attract cash sponsors, deceased celebrities do not make very good fundraisers. So it’s easy to see why tournament directors jumped at the cash Humana–a health insurance conglomerate which

claims to be one of the country’s largest private providers of health benefits for seniors–dangled in front of them, including an eightyear sponsorship agreement and, for 2012, a $5.5 million purse for the players. All this begs the question: Why, with health insurance costs rising by double digits, would a health benefits provider commit to an eight-year deal worth nearly $50 million on a golf tournament? But when one thinks about it, it makes perfect sense. First Humana sells it’s coverage to individuals such as me and you and then promotes living healthy lifestyles so we don’t have to use the benefits provided for by the coverage we have already purchased … there are no ‘good health’ rebates. So, Bob Hope has now followed the road of Bing Crosby and Dinah Shore, Andy Williams and Glen Campbell into golf tournament oblivion; is the Frank Sinatra Invitational next? Probably, but in the meantime … thanks for the memories. ****** Enter through the massive wooden and etched glass doors and the feeling is like that of walking into the ornate lobby of a luxurious five-star hotel, only the view that’s framed in one

Robert and Beverly Cohen

entire glass wall is that of the bay of Newport, not Waialua. You pinch yourself: yes, that is a large, tiered Gilhooly chandelier over your head, and those glass tables are Lalique, but it is the fauna that captures your attention as you realize that you have been transported into a floral fantasyland of unparalleled elegance created by your hosts, Beverly and Robert Cohen. The fantasy is real. Formerly owned by John Wayne, the waterfront house has been lovingly re-created from the ground up by two design perfectionists: Beverly, who conceived and carried out the décor, and Bob, who has literally covered every square inch of outdoor space with exotic plants, succulents and sprays of flowers in vivid, colorful glory. Naturally, these two creative people would achieve nothing short of perfection as hosts of a July 4 barbeque. Passing an infinity pool that seems to flow into Newport Bay, a contingent of Beverly Hills guests meandered past food stations featuring traditional barbeque fare as well as a whole, spitroasted lamb. To reduce calories in between platefuls of edible delicacies, live music was provided, with no one getting more into the swing of things than Beverly who danced non-stop unhindered by four-inch stiletto heels … not bad for a lady who recently had a knee and a hip replaced. The good time, with good friends, almost made the fireworks display over Newport Bay redundant … none of the sparklers handed out to the guests g l o w e d brighter than the faces of our hosts.

Peter Ford, the only child of Glenn Ford and Eleanor Powell, has written Glenn Ford A Life (University of Wisconsin $24.95). It is a portrait of the Hollywood star and his relationship to his son who is now in his 60s. Asked if he had ever been in analysis, he said writing this book was a good way to do a self analysis. Glenn was born in Canada on May 1, 1916 as Gwyllyn Ford, hardly a name to fit on billboards. His family moved to California and Glenn graduated from Santa Monica High School where he became the lead in school plays. On the side, he volunteered in local theatre often working as the stage manager to get a two-line part. He played a role at 20th Century-Fox with a director who insulted him in front of the crew and cast. Glenn never forgot it. With his agent Gummo CONNIE MARTINSON Marx, he signed the first of three contracts with Columbia Studios and Harry Cohn. Columbia had the reputation of making “B” films. It was on loan outs that Glenn had the opportunity to work with better directors and Cohn made money on the deal. It was in 1940 that Glenn and Rita Hayworth co-starred in A Lady In Question beginning a great love affair that continued off and on till her death. Peter told me that their homes on Oxford Way had a path between. Devoted to his mother, Hannah, he had her live with him and Eleanor. She had the room between their separate bedrooms as both Eleanor and Glenn were intensely devoted to their mothers. Eleanor gave up being a star at MGM when she married Glenn, and ultimately gave up being a wife when she became a mother. Glenn would ask her to go with him on a European assignment and she would reject the invitation, which may explain why Glenn never met a leading lady he didn’t try to seduce. Peter was able to refer to the journals Glenn kept and to the tapes he made for an autobiography. Besides Rita, there were two other great loves, Maria Schell and Hope Lange. In his acting career, Glenn made 84 films (and, no, Peter does not receive any residuals). After his divorce from Eleanor, when Peter was 14, there was a lively bachelor’s life. He did marry Kathy Hays, and then Cynthia Hayward, neither were successful. It was also during this period that Glenn was on the outs with Peter and his wife, Lynda. Again the Hollywood syndrome, the “king” is not ready to see a young, handsome heir. Push back the tide of old age. Even in his later years, he would bring home a pretty nurse from the hospital who would begin by having him give her power of attorney. Read and weep at the King Lear scenes. Peter told me that it took years to straighten out the legal entanglements. The book is the stuff of novels written about Hollywood.

RETIREMENT: No city employee pays one penny for their retirement. Beverly Hills pays it all with half being tax free. After “retirement,” employees are free to obtain other employment without reduction of retirement benefits. Beverly Hills does not know how many former employees receive retirement pay from working for Beverly Hills.

Note: Employee salaries and benefits are matters of public record under PERS: The amount used to calculate retirement Even highly-paid executives and other staff California statutes and multiple court decisions.

Beverly Hills grants employees retirement members receive overtime. “Leave benefits equal to 3 percent of their highest-ever Cashout” includes Administrative Leave staff costs in this manner to show the actual cost of each employee. compensation multiplied by each year of service to (the “overtime” allotted to non-hourly a maximum of 30 years.

correct. “Salary” in City budgets is only the starting point. For most City employees, “salary” represents only about half what the City of Beverly Hills pays per employee. “Salary” is also the amount used to compare Beverly Hills compensation to other cities. It is a false and misleading comparison, which is why The Courier demanded “total cost to the City” for each employee. Use of the term “salary” seriously understates what Beverly Hills pays. The starting amount is “salary,” but added to that amount are: guaranteed overtime (City employment agreements with unionized workers includes “guaranteed” overtime), overtime, administrative leave, paid vacation, sick time off (paid if not used), 100 percent retirement contributions (the employee pays nothing), full health care, “9/80” days (every other Monday or Friday off), and legal holidays. Thus, it is vital readers look at the last shaded column in the chart,

“Total Compensation.” That is what the taxpayers of Beverly Hills paid for that employee in 2010. The totals in most cases are nearly double “salary.” What is also noteworthy is Beverly Hills has approximately one employee for every 34 residents (968 workers for approximately 33,000 residents). No other city in Southern California approaches that level of staffing. Even allowing for the City’s extremely large police force, which exists because the City wants it, Beverly Hills is the most heavily over-staffed city in the state. City compensation per position is about double the pay for equivalent jobs in the private sector, not even counting retirement benefits. Finally, note that every City worker has at least 13 weeks off with pay—meaning these salaries and benefits paid to each City worker for only nine months of actual service. Next week: the “9/80” or “Every other Friday off” policy and retirement benefits. “Why you cannot get anything done at City Hall—there’s no one there.”

Registration For Basketball League Begins Aug. 15 The City of Beverly Hills Adult Basketball League will register teams for the fall season beginning Aug. 15. Priority registration is given to Beverly Hills residents or Beverly Hills business teams comprising 50 percent or more. The Adult Basketball League plays weekday evenings at

Brucker also had a meeting Wednesday with County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavky. Brucker said Yaroslavsky was aware of Beverly Hills’ concerns and he promised Beverly Hills would be informed of any preliminary reports that Metro releases so Beverly Hills can do its own analysis and evaluation. At a press conference June 9, Los Angeles Councilmember Paul Koretz and Century City Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Susan Bursk publically spoke in favor of the Constellation station. Koretz told The Courier that he has not changed his mind. “I support a stop in the center of Century City, and look forward to reviewing the final EIR documents, which of

course I will do with an open mind,” Koretz said. “But based on ridership and convenience and gaining the best return on the taxpayers’ investment, and on community input from across the region, I support the Constellation station.” Although Bursk said she supports the Constellation station, she said it was hard to make a determine what the best location would be until the final EIR is released. “Safety is key no matter what,” Bursk said. “Obviously we think Constellation is the best location for a number of reasons (including ridership). Everyone needs to keep their emotions under control and let’s see what the facts and findings are.”

Brucker said Villaraigosa mentioned the $350,000 the City Council put aside July 7 for fighting the subway tunnel. “(Villaraigosa) is keenly aware of our issues and he was very aware of the $350,000 fund that we earmarked,” Brucker said. “I think he knows we mean business.”

RETIREMENT: No city employee pays one penny for their retirement. Beverly Hills pays it all with half being tax free. After “retirement,” employees are free to obtain other employment without reduction of retirement benefits. Beverly Hills does not know how many former employees receive retirement pay from working for Beverly Hills.

DSA (Continued from page 4)

Yaroslavsky that tunnels have been built under existing public school buildings. The DSA director also said the impact on the existing school buildings could not be determined until actual plans were submitted after a tunnel is dug. School Board representatives told The Courier they had fully considered when and how to approach the DSA about the matter, but that this meeting was a complete surprise to them. The DSA is required by law to review all construction plans for public schools in California under the Field Act, the earthquake safety legislation prompted by the 1933 Long Beach earthquake, as detailed in the June 24 issue of The Courier. The District has retained multiple outside experts and engineers to oppose MTA’s efforts to tunnel under Beverly Hills High School. The city council has “re-

served” $350,000 to fund opposition, but has yet to engage qualified experts, relying instead on city staff. None of the city staff hold the credentials necessary to be credible on the matter. Brucker and Vice Mayor Willie Brien continue to pursue “diplomatic means” to save the high school from the tunnel rather than take action. They have offered many concessions to MTA including zoning, staging areas, and “park and ride” facilities in Beverly Hills. Privately, they have conceded that these “diplomatic means” are futile, but still refuse to join with the School Board to protect the high school. As of deadline, neither Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa nor Yaroslavsky has agreed to move the tunnel away from Beverly High. No transcript of the meeting was available and it is unclear what was actually said. —mschevker@bhcourier.com

TOTAL

A Beverly Hills city employee receives extra pay and benefits equal to from half to over double his/her salary as a result of overtime, leave, paid days off, retirement contributions and health benefits. The equivalent number in private industry is approximately 26 percent.

responded to reports of smoke coming from the underground vault facility located at the southeast corner of Wilshire and Doheny. Once the smoke was cleared, the SCE crew was able to fix the cable. The Beverly Hills Public Library was affected by the out-

age for about 50 minutes between 2-3 p.m. The library was kept open the entire time with staff checking out books manually and they helped people find books in the stacks with flashlights. Many library patrons continued to read their books in the natural light areas.

STERLING (Continued from page 1)

hardly any wonder that Donald T. Sterling has acquired holdings the envy of any sultan or Hollywood mogul. With 36 apartment buildings in Beverly Hills alone, plus 24 in Santa Monica, 44 on mid-Wilshire and a goodly number of prime units in San Diego, he is the unquestioned market leader in every single one of those areas. “And don’t forget we’re plenty strong in Westwood, Hollywood, Long Beach, Brentwood and Vegas, too,” Sterling exclaimed. Because his business and sports (owner of the Los Angeles Clippers for 30 years) endeavors are always so high profile–and often controversial in nature–he and his wife of 54-years Shelly’s, con-

sistent, below the radar support of innumerable charities and schools for more than four decades is virtually unknown to the general public. “I’ve never forgotten where I came from,” said Sterling, who never hides his East L.A. roots. “Education is the key to having a successful life and family but many underprivileged kids on the Eastside just don’t get that chance so I want to help them as much as possible.” Just last December, the Donald T. Sterling Foundation handed out scholarships grants to 10 under-funded inner-city high schools (Belmont, Roosevelt, Garfield, Fremont, Hamilton, Franklin, Jefferson Lincoln, Manual Arts, and Wilson).

Some 30 charities were also included to the tune of $5 million. These ranged from A Place Called Home, Vista Del Mar, Jeffrey Foundation, Junior Blind, 100 Black Men and Catholic Education Foundation to the Jewish Home for the Aging, Children’s Hospital L.A., Union Rescue Mission, Salvation Army, Cedars-Sinai Heart Foundation, and the United Negro College Fund. But just how did this Chicago-born, Boyle Heights-raised former divorce and personal injury lawyer himself become one of the most successful real estate and sports tycoons in America? After attending Roosevelt High School, Cal State LA and Southwestern Law School, Sterling supplemented his “day job” income by purchasing his first apartment building, a 26-unit structure at 272 S. Rexford Dr. for $501,408 with a down payment of $25,000. His formula was constant and has been maintained through 2011. He would buy undervalued properties in good areas, improve them by adding marble floors in the lobbies, heavy landscaping and a fresh coat of paint. By 1970, he owned 22 apartment buildings—all of them in Beverly Hills. Shortly thereafter, he branched out into commercial real estate by purchasing and rehabing the former Louis B. Mayer building at the corner of Wilshire and Beverly Drive.

This became his Sterling Plaza headquarters. To this he has added the Beverly Comstock Hotel and Malibu Yacht Club among others. His acquisition prowess had reached such a level that in 1979 he was able to lend his friend Dr. Jerry Buss $2.7 million to complete the purchase of the Los Angeles Lakers, Kings and The Forum from Jack Kent Cooke. In exchange for the money, Sterling received a portion of the Buss portfolio of apartment structures. Two years later, Buss suggested Sterling could have his own basketball franchise and the latter bought the San Diego Clippers for $13.5 million. (He then moved the team to Los Angeles and–though not sporting much of a winning record the past couple of decades–is still quite profitable to the point he was able to recently reject a serious $700 million offer from a unnamed Hollywood executive.) “Sports’ television rights are in such high demand these days since we can provide the outlets with up to 100 hours of programming with minimal production costs,” said Sterling. “In our own case with a budding star like Blake Griffin to build upon, we have a great future,” he continued. “In fact, I like to think someday we could become the most popular sports team in Los Angeles.” And with the undeniable success of his real estate and philanthropic ventures, don’t put anything past this dynamo who has rightfully been dubbed: “The man who bought Beverly Hills.”

don and weekends and vacations traveling all over Europe. I love when he reminisces about who, what, when and where... Among the many places he mentioned he enjoyed was Villa Magna in Madrid... So, when I received an invitation to attend a luncheon at Jose Andres' restaurant Bazaar, celebrating the beautiful renovated Villa Magna, I jumped at the opportunity... What an incredible treat, the menu was specially prepared for the occasion and featured 13 courses plus desserts to die for (and I managed to taste and enjoy it all... of course I didn't eat for two days afterwards). Meeting Laura Del Pozo, of Villa Magna, seeing slides on the hotel and hearing about the accommodations, services and facilities, it is easy to see this will become a destination place when in Madrid. It even has Spain’s only hotel Kosher kitchen. I also met Javier Pinanes from the Spanish Tourist Office and his colleague Ana Ramiro, who heads its public relations department. They informed me that Iberia Airlines recently launched direct flights from LAX to Madrid. What is that expression? “Have passport will travel... I'm ready.” ****** Congratulations...

By Holiday Mathis TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 29). Your domestic scene improves because of behind-the-scenes activity. A loved one joins your quest for expansion, and in August, this starts with growing your spiritual and cultural awareness. You’ll be the initiator of new business in September. A large sum comes to you as a result of your advertising campaign. Aquarius and Libra people adore you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In time, you will achieve your objective. You know this, so you don’t bother to push things along or stress about them unnecessarily. You have the patience of an immortal being. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll try to cheer someone else up and will wind up cheering up not only that person but three other people, too–one of the people being, of course, you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Create back up systems for yourself. It’s not because you will need them, but because the exercise helps you realize how much you’ve accomplished, and it’s worth it to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When friends invite you to an event, go out of your way to attend. Consider the Scandinavian proverb: Go often to the house of thy friend; for weeds soon choke up the unused path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The ones who have no idea how to help you will be, nonetheless, full of advice. If you weren’t so polite, you would find the situation laughable. Find out who the real experts are, and make appointments. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You respect law and order, though you also see how power can corrupt people. So you won’t follow orders until you’ve considered the source and seen the reason and purpose in the direction. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A problem that gets everyone to unify efforts and work together for a solution is a good problem to have. You will communicate what needs to be accomplished, and people will pull together. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Cultivate deeper knowledge of your reality and work on many levels of consciousness at once. You progress quickly along in a project because of your multidimensionality. ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). You value openness and friendliness, and you do not suspect people who try to get to know you better of having ulterior motives. And yet, it wouldn’t hurt to be slightly more on guard today. TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You are deeply passionate about topics that also interest a few of your closest friends. It’s nice to have something to connect you so completely. And for those who don’t “get it,” you’ll find other things to talk about. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like a child who personalizes the world by naming his or her toys, you'll add much-needed character to your surroundings. The others will be grateful for your contribution. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It will bring you pleasure to surprise those who know you well. It will be a living reminder to them that they will never be able to fully sum you up, so they had better not try.

Identify Statement Package as: Confidential Prequalification Statement for the Renovation of the Children’s Library Notice is hereby given that the City of Beverly Hills (“CITY”) has determined that all bidders for the construction of the Renovation of the Children’s Library in the Beverly Hills Library (“PROJECT”), must be pre-qualified prior to submitting a bid on that PROJECT. It is mandatory that all Contractors who intend to submit a bid, fully complete the prequalification questionnaire, provide all materials requested herein, and be approved by the CITY to be on the final qualified Bidders list. No bid will be accepted from a Contractor that has failed to comply with these requirements. If two or more business entities submit a bid as part of a Joint Venture, or expect to submit a bid as part of a Joint Venture, each entity within the Joint Venture must be separately qualified to bid. The last date to submit a fully completed questionnaire is the date shown on the cover page. Contractors are encouraged to submit prequalification packages as soon as possible, so that they may be notified of omissions of information to be remedied or of their prequalification status in advance of the prequalification deadline for this PROJECT. Answers to questions contained in the attached questionnaire are required. The CITY will use these documents as the basis of rating Contractors with respect to whether each Contractor is qualified to bid on the PROJECT, and reserves the right to check other sources available. The CITY’s decision will be based on objective evaluation criteria. The CITY reserves the right to adjust, increase, limit, suspend or rescind the prequalification rating based on subsequently learned information. Contractors whose rating changes sufficiently to disqualify them will be notified, and given an opportunity for a hearing consistent with the hearing procedures described below for appealing a prequalification rating. While it is the intent of the prequalification questionnaire and documents required therewith to assist the CITY in determining bidder responsibility prior to bid and to aid the CITY in selecting the lowest responsible bidder, neither the fact of prequalification, nor any prequalification rating, will preclude the CITY from a post-bid consideration and determination of whether a

Each questionnaire must be signed under penalty of perjury in the manner designated in the Certification, by an individual who has the legal authority to bind the Contractor on whose behalf that person is signing. If any information provided by a Contractor becomes inaccurate, the Contractor must immediately notify the CITY and provide updated accurate information in writing, under penalty of perjury. The CITY reserves the right to waive minor irregularities and omissions in the information contained in the prequalification application submitted, and to make all final determinations. The CITY may also determine at any time that the prequalification process will be suspended for the PROJECT and the PROJECT will be bid without prequalification.

Without a timely appeal, the contractor waives any and all rights to challenge the decision of the CITY, whether by administrative process, judicial process or any other legal process or proceeding. If the Contractor gives the required notice of appeal, a hearing shall be conducted no earlier than five business days after the CITY’s receipt of the notice of appeal and not later than five business days prior to the date of the Notice Inviting Bids for this Project. Prior to the hearing, the Contractor shall, in writing, be advised of the basis for the City’s pre-qualification determination. The hearing shall be conducted by a panel consisting of three members of the Department of Public Works & Transportation senior management staff (the “Appeals Panel”). The Appeals Panel shall consider any evidence presented by the Contractor, whether or not the evidence is presented in compliance with formal rules of evidence. The Contractor will be given the opportunity to present evidence, information and arguments as to why the Contractor believes it should be pre-qualified. Within one week after the conclusion of the hearing, the Appeals Panel will render a written determination as to whether the Contractor is pre-qualified. It is the intention of the CITY that the date for the submission and opening of bids will not be delayed or postponed to allow for completion of an appeal process. d.

From the Publisher CLIF SMITH FOOLING THE PUBLIC ALL THE TIME Abraham Lincoln was wrong – it seems like you CAN fool all the people all the time. Maybe up to now His famous quote reads in full: “It is true that you may fool all . people some of the time; you can even fool some of the peoof the ple all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” Based on data finally extracted from City of Beverly Hills staff by The Courier and from statements made to The Courier by many former mayors and councilmembers, it seems like City staff has done a terrific job fooling all of us all of the time. They’ve successfully concealed the total cost of each City worker for many, many years. Their trick: “Just call it salary.” That’s what City staff tried to do to The Courier the last few months. When The Courier demanded public employee cost information, what we got—first— was a referral to the State Controller’s web site that only had old data, and that was “salary only.” Then we were told to “look at the various MOU’s (City collective bargaining agreements) and figure it out for ourselves. Finally, we threatened to go to court and we meant it. Only then did City staff cave in and give us the real cost data . . . and the real answer is shocking to most of us. City staff works only nine months a year. They are paid for 12. Our City has nearly half again as many non-public safety workers as any other comparable city, yet getting something out of City Hall remains unbelievably difficult. We found out why—every City employee (non-public safety) gets either every other Monday or every other Friday off. For those who show up, they all get overtime—even the highest paid supervisors and executives (excepting only City Manager Jeff Kolin and Assistant City Manager Mahdi Aluzri). Who in private industry gets $100,000 a year PLUS overtime for working a little late? Those of us in private industry often work 24/7 just to keep our jobs. After our expose ran last Friday, former mayors told us: “We tried to get this information for years and never could. Good job.” “I was told the personnel cost-per-employee was confidential. I never got this. Thank you.” At least one current member of the council said: “They would never give me information. They ignored my requests and waited for me to go away.” The data published by The Courier is essentially the same data that any public corporation is required to make public. So, please read the information, but focus on the “Total Amount” column not the “Total Salary” line. If you just look at the “Total Salary” column, you will be fooled. You need the total. That’s what you pay. It is your City and your employees, and you are entitled by law to this information. What you do with the information is up to you. Our reaction is: Ask why previous councils failed to get this information or share it with residents. It really raises the question why did the current City Council majority claim we have a “deficit” that can only be funded by making our kids pay huge fees to play in their own parks, cutting miniscule appropriations for such projects as the CPR program, cutting our hotels and merchants back on their tiny allocation of marketing funds they collect from visitors in the first place, telling us we must “pay to park” when residents overwhelmingly demand free two hour parking, and telling us all that we even have a “deficit” in the first place. We now know where our money goes—it goes to public employee pay, benefits, health plans, vacation, retirement and perks. We pay, they collect. We work all year. They work nine months. Whom does our council majority really represent? Look at this data and ask that question. If you “follow the money” you get the answer. So, Lincoln was right after all. We’re not fooled anymore.

Rabbi Jacob Pressman IS COMPROMISE A DIRTY WORD? This past week a member of the Congress of the United States told the world via television that: “Compromise is a dirty word!” Embarrassed for my country, I began to parse that statement. First of all, what does “compromise” mean? Webster’s Dictionary says: “a way of reaching an agreement to a dispute, by which each side surrenders something that it wants” I looked for the expression: “dirty word” in Webster’s but could not find it. My trusty computer thesaurus describes it thus: “a swear word, cussword, expletive, four letter word, offensive word, unpopular thing.” I wondered: is compromise such a blanketyblank thing? Webster’s also tells me that in the Compromise of 1850, Congress passed a series of acts providing that each newly acquired territory should decide on its own slave or free status. Can you imagine the heat of those discussions? The Compromise of 1877 settled a disputed elec-

tion between Rutherford Hayes and Samuel Tilden by creating an Electoral Commission, which gave the presidency to Hayes in return for the demilitarization of the South. That must have been a time of hot tempers! The point is that Congress reached a compromise and the nation survived, but I am sure the populace suffered the consequences of the highly charged debate for a considerable amount of time. I would guess that so shall we. I devoutly hope that a compromise is reached before this message appears, but whatever happens I fear we shall be paying a heavy penalty and so shall many of the members of Congress. As for these United States, I hope you share my confidence that we will survive this historic upheaval and continue to be the land of the free, the home of the brave and the balanced of the budget.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR It’s interesting you’d publish salaries of safety employees– obviously you have a problem with their incomes. Don't you think it would be fair to determine how many hours were worked to total the amount you printed, show the hourly rate. It always amazes me people like you who need staff meetings, conference calls or quality circles to make decisions go after people who on a daily basis have to make life and death judgements in a split second. Of course you don’t mind them too much when it’s your relative or property in jeopardy. You expect fire and police personnel to risk life and limb for you but yet you cheap shot their salaries. Have you ever noticed if you dial 911 on any holiday somebody shows up, either fire or police. They cover citizens of Beverly Hills 365 days a year. Also, have you ever been at home getting ready to go wedding, a party etc. and receive a call from work telling—not asking—you to report to headquarters for a major incident as your family stands by waiting to leave. Jeremiah F. Hayes BHFD Battalion Chief (Ret.) ****** After trying to comprehend the shocking amounts paid to these “public employees,” the magnitude of this mismanagement is staggering. Shouldn’t someone have to serve time for perpetrating and/or tolerating this obscenity? City Council members must have colluded with staff managers who colluded with employee organizations. How else could this have happened? Congratulations for pursuing this and finally getting the bottom-line numbers. The Los Angeles Times won a Pulitzer for revealing the craziness in Bell—may you folks win one for revealing the craziness in B.H. Russ Patrick ****** As a businessman I’m incensed; as a resident I’m shocked; and as a parent I’m embarrassed. Only Beverly Hills can make the thieves of Bell

look underpaid. BH always claims that we are a smart city, then how did the salaries get to this! A fireman collecting $90,000 in overtime while getting 432 hours of paid leave. How does that even work? How is the city manager or the fire chief allowing this to happen (check their pay). Forget leaving this to our kids, its our mess, and we are broke. We’ll be bankrupt before our kids inherit this garbage. I thought public sector was paid less than private sector, what a joke, my brother’s company of 300 people (like B.H.) has 15 people making more than $100,000, no pensions, full medical, and 401ks. Beverly Hills has every employee making that and much more, it’s blasphemous. The City Council must start from scratch by laying off one department at a time; then offer them half (very generous) wages and benefits. Let’s see how many of our employees return! Council, don’t be afraid–with the wages you pay I’m sure we can the best lawyers in town to defend us. Jeff Weisfeld ****** As a long time employee of the City of Beverly Hills. I make no apology for the salary and benefits I earn. I have worked here for 34 years and make less than $60,000. On my salary, I cannot afford to live in Beverly Hills. I currently rent an executive single in a luxury building on the Hollywood/ West Hollywood border for $1,235 a month and to rent anything comparable in Beverly Hills would cost at least $1,500. In the interest of fairness, I would suggest The Courier compare Beverly Hills salaries with those of other cities, especially places where the workforce can actually afford to live. Kat Files Editor’s Note: Ms. Files services cost the City $73,175. She received four week’s paid vacation and eight days’ sick leave. ****** Congratulations for prying out of the City the amounts

employees pay each other. I encourage you to keep going. For example, in the last two years I have been to two conferences where the speaker said BH will go bankrupt at some point because there is no way it can keep the pension and other retirement promises it has made to employees. Is this true? If yes, do City leaders know this? Are they hiding the problem? Another interesting investigation would be to look at whether City employee costs have been growing faster than revenues. If they have been, what services have been cut back? Who gets less so that City employees can have more? Larry Mattson ****** Wow! I shudda gone to work for the City. Thanks for a job well done! Robert Weisman ****** How disheartening that Beverly Hills, the textbook example of mansionization, still does not have any program in place to protect its remaining architectural treasures! As a native daughter, I vividly recall seeing many beloved structures razed, including the Heller House which was three doors up from my childhood home. Many times the replacement houses lacked architectural distinction. And these new houses often did not age as well as the homes they replaced. The older homes from the 1920s through 1950s were built using exceptionally durable materials, with coved ceilings, wooden and steel casement windows and many decorative details lending them great character. These subtle nuances are truly irreplaceable. Kudos to John Mirisch for trying to bring my hometown more into alignment with hundreds of other cities nationwide that have adopted Mills Act Programs and other methods to preserve their precious architectural history. It’s just sad that it is probably too late for the Kronish House. Susan Wolfson
