The event was part of the firm’s series “A Celebration of our Freedom”, honoring the outstanding efforts and sacrifices made by the nation’s veterans.

PROFILE TS: I did a little research on your career before our meeting. For such a young guy you’ve certainly had a stellar career. Calvin Klein, Bottega Veneta, Luella Bartley, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, and all of that was prior to becoming the Design Director at Mulberry, winning a British Fashion Award, and then moving to Loewe in 2008 as their Design Director. SV: It’s true, I moved around a lot when I was starting out. Actually, I studied fashion when I attended University because I originally wanted to be a fashion designer. When I worked at Louis Vuitton, I started designing handbags and never looked back. I love what I do at Loewe. Most of my team is young. Although the company is 165 years old, and places a lot of value in its traditional styles and quality craftsmanship, it’s also very supportive of new ideas. Loewe is really like a big family. I work with people who have been with the company for 50 years. I’m still in awe with our craftsmen. It takes 26 hours to hand-craft just one bag! That’s love and that’s the attention to detail that puts Loewe on par with the Hermes Kelly bag. TS: What are the hallmarks of Loewe style? SV: The leather is the most important element. It’s quite unusual for a company with so much history to have remained so singularly focused on one area. Another important hallmark is the provenance of the brand; Spain. Although, we have a lot in common with our European cousins, Spain is different - different references and cultural events. All that contributes extensively to the uniqueness of the brand. It’s the only brand of its luxury level in Spain. TS: Speaking of luxury, tell me about your iconic Amazona bag. SV: There’s really a great story behind the creation of the handbag. It was initially designed in the ‘70s when modern women were breaking the social, cultural, and political barriers. The world was seeing the rise of female empowerment. The name Amazona signifies female strength. It’s bold, yet classically designed and it’s still represents a symbol of women’s freedom and power.

STUART VEVERS - The Man Behind The Luxurious Handbags Of LOEWE Findustry ashion Night Out attracted a galaxy of shining stars from the fashion to our Beverly Hills week-long celebrations. One of the youngest, brightest stars in the competitive world of luxury handbags is Stuart Vevers, who was on hand at Neiman Marcus to showcase his latest Loewe fall collection. Loewe; the 165 year-old Spanish design house, is renowned for its luxurious leather goods, which are loyally coveted by royalty and celebrities alike. Tawny Sanders, our Fashion Director had the opportunity to sit down and chat over lunch with Stuart, during his recent visit.

TS: We haven’t seen Loewe in Beverly Hills. What’s in the future? SV: Loewe is now part of LVMH and because of their strong support, we’re able to reach out to a broader market. Right now, the store producing our highest revenue world-wide is a small boutique in China. We’re looking to expand in Asia and right here on your West coast. We’re currently in Bergdorf Goodman in New York and we’re here at Neiman Marcus, testing the waters you might say. TS: So if our readers want to purchase one of your bags? SV: Go to Neiman Marcus. If it’s not on the floor they’ve got my number and I’m happy to ship it. October 14, 2011 | Page C

Liz’s Legacy By Joanne Galey

I

n a town that’s very foundation was built out of a celebration of film, fashion and glamour, some would say that it takes quite a big name to grab our attention. The Queen of Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor not only called Los Angeles her home for most of her professional life, but surely commanded our attention as the most celebrated and adored leading lady.

C

hristie’s Los Angeles will showcase a much-anticipated 4-day public exhibition that includes highlights of Ms. Taylor’s vast and personal collection of jewelry, fashion and film memorabilia. Los Angeles will be the first U.S. stop on a global tour, appearing at MOCA Pacific Design Center October 13-16.

Ethelizabeth Taylor lived her life as one glorious love affair (or several) with world. Everything she did was glamorous and legendary, from the films she starred in, the men she loved, to her tireless devotion of caring and giving. The collection is truly a dazzling legacy to a lifetime of glamour and iconic moments. A treasure trove that reflects her fearless sense of style and brimming over with historic storied gifts.

Sstunning he befriended and collaborated with world renowned designers to create looks that were immortalized by the paparazzi, from the ethereal silver Chanel ball gown and cape she wore to the Royal Film performance of The Taming of the Shrew in London in 1967, to the stunning ivory silk Valentino Couture gown she donned for the 64th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood. Highlights include a Tiziani black velvet Scorpio evening cape that was commissioned for the occasion of Princess Grace of Monaco’s 40th Birthday “Scorpio Ball”. Though born a Pisces, Ms. Taylor was permitted to attend, as her date was then husband Richard Burton who shared the same zodiac sign as the Princess. An intricate rhinestone beaded evening jacket, known as “The Face”, was designed by close friend Gianni Versace and depicts portraits of Elizabeth in her most famous roles. She wore it to the “Glitter and Giving” Gala to benefit the American Foundation for AIDS. On the occasion of her first marriage to Richard Burton, she turned to Academy Award-winning costume designer, Irene Sharaff to create a sunflower yellow silk chiffon wedding dress. Elizabeth affixed a dazzling BVLGARI emerald and diamond brooch, given to her by Burton as an engagement present and provides the perfect bridge in this story that leads from fashion to her magnificent collection of jewels.


La Pérégrina Early 16th century pearl, ruby and diamond necklace, by Cartier Designed by Elizabeth Taylor, with Al Durante of Cartier Gift from Richard Burton Purchased from Parke-Bernet Galleries, New York January 23, 1969

F“it’sromTuesday, her jaw-dropping diamonds, and one of a kind historic jewels to cherished and I love you” gifts, Elizabeth’s passion for jewelry promises to captivate the auction world. “Her depth of knowledge about fine jewelry truly impresses,” notes Francois Curiel, International Jewelry Director and President for Christies’ Asia. “From the first time I met her in 1998, it was clear that she possessed an expert’s eye for craftsmanship, rarity, quality and history. She collected the best pieces from the best periods, and as a result her personal collection boasts exquisite examples from the most celebrated jewelry designers, including Boucheron, Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels amongst others. As she said herself”, adds Curiel, “give them to a really good home”.

Estimate: $2,000,000 – 3,000,000

Scaraturelywhopper the shining star of the show is “The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond”, the 33.19that was reportedly worn every day. “My ring gives me the strangest feeling for beauty. With its sparks of red and white, blue and purple, and really it sort of hums with its own beatific life”, Taylor said of her most celebrated and cherished white diamonds. Then there is the 16th Century pear shaped Pearl that was discovered in the Gulf of Panama in the 1500s, featured in the crown jewels of Spanish Kings and Queens and famously purchased by Burton at auction in 1969, after successfully outbidding a member of the Spanish Royal family. Collected over the course of repeat trips to the BVLGARI boutique in Rome, the Emerald and Diamond Suite of precious gems were cherished keepsakes from the filming of Cleopatra. Of their time together in Rome, Richard Burton quipped, “I introduced Liz to beer, and she introduced me to BVLGARI.” A personal favorite is her “Life in Jewels” charm bracelets. Collected by Taylor from her teenage years to adulthood, the collection form an autobiography of sorts including an engraved clapperboard commemorating the Taming of the Shrew and a gold sphere locket that opens to reveal four medallions, each engraved with the names and birthdates of her four children.

“T he stunning outfits and jewels she wore to galas, award ceremonies, benefits and even her own wedding are all here, lovingly maintained, and sure to inspire and delight all who come to see it” said Marc Porter, Chairman and President of Christie’s Americas.

STEPPING UP IN A DOWN ECONOMY The Everychild Foundation proves their model works! By Joanne Galey

I

t's no secret that charitable giving has been hit hard in these lean economic times. Many non-profit organizations have had to reinvent their strategies to stay afloat, while others have had to implement drastic cuts that have negatively impacted their programs. In spite of a gloomy forecast, it's heartening to see a local foundation weathering the storm, and how a dedicated group of generous, smart, like-minded women can come together and create a tour de force of philanthropic giving with a difference.

Egrantachtoyear, the Everychild Foundation awards a single $1 million a non-profit organization in Los Angeles County that profoundly helps children facing disease, abuse, neglect, poverty or disability. This year’s all important grant hearing meeting will be at the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica on October 18th. “Even in a struggling economy, where philanthropic giving is down by 40-60%, the Everychild Foundation has suffered less than a 5% dip and is still able to give away $1 million each year,” says group founder, Jacqueline Caster, who was inspired to start the nonprofit in 1999 out of her frustration with the ho-hum charity gala circuit.

W hat makes the Everychild Foundation successful is it’s extremely simplistic “low maintenance” approach. There are no fund raising events, no paid staff, no solicitation of friends, family or business associates and overhead is kept to a strict bare-bones budget. Instead, members pool their annual memberships dues and choose how much or how little involvement in the group they can afford. A philosophy that works well for busy L.A. women who are raising families and running businesses, but still want to be involved in their communities and make a difference to the lives of others. “With its democratic voting system, lack of hierarchy, and involvement flexibility, Everychild sets the new standard for a high level of donor engagement,” says Caster.

ts members are empowered to take on leadership roles, providing many well intentioned, well-educated and talented women a platform to get involved. The group’s tagline is “Women Reinventing Philanthropy” because it provides its members with the opportunity to give in a more stimulating, efficient and effective manner. No matter the level of volunteer involvement, the entire membership roster votes to award the $1 million grant to a different non-profit each year with an innovative, new dream project that can inspire replication – thus leveraging the dollars for maximum impact.

T his year’s worthy recipient will be announced the first week of November and will join the ranks of fellow organizations, who thanks to Everychild have been empowered to make a difference to children's lives throughout LA County.

and what wild times she’s had. An original Girl on the Go, the easier question about the designer Vicky Tiel is: who hasn’t she known? Hers is a life chockablock with living among the Who and the Who of Celebritydom. From Woody to Warren to Goldie to Coco to best friend Elizabeth and more.

icky lets everything hang out in her racy autobiography, It’s All About The Dress: What I Learned In 40 Years About Men, Women, Sex And Fashion. Published by St. Martin’s Press, she delivers a roller coaster ride of a read -her total recall stupefies. “In any town, in any club, in any port, or on any yacht, I was there, cocktail in hand.”

icky lit a fashion bonfire during the Swinging Sixties. Her eye-catching sexpot dresses were irresistible. Ahead of their time, with savvy Shirlee Fonda buying more than 60 of Vicky’s come-hither creations, and “keeps them all now on two racks at home … in the event Vicky opens her own museum. The fabric and craftsmanship are marvelous. Like couture.” Although not ageappropriate, as Shirlee says, for her to wear today.

hirlee and beau Rob Wolders joined Vicky, as did Chris Wilding, Sonia and George Segal, Lilly Reeves and Barbara Davis, at the fannybumper book party Carole Wells Doheny hosted in her condominium building’s party room.

icky believes that “the sexual revolution exploded in 1956 with Brigitte Bardot when she starred in Roger Vadim’s And God Created Woman.

peaking of football, as Vicky did about Tom Brady, she recollects her days as a cheerleader at the Bethesda, Md. high school. “I planned a trick to help our team win. Three downs and three yards to go, and you pass a rumor that one of the Bethesda cheerleaders isn’t wearing underpants. Our team was in on the trick. We’d do our cheerleader cartwheels, and distract the rival players who were looking for that girl. And that girl was me!”

Rumors have been ongoing for more than a year. The Iranianborn Mercedes Tavacoli Diba was wed to Ambassador Francis Kellogg, and Sid’s previous marriage was to arts patron Anne Hendricks Bass, a huge supporter of ballet.

HOW DO YOU FEEL? NASCAR Family Names Sleep Room In Honor Of C-S Obstetrician Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has received a gift from Amy France and her husband Brian France, chairman/ CEO of NASCAR. After the successful birth of their twins at Cedars late last year, the couple decided to recognize their Beverly Hills-based obstetrician, Dr. Paul H. Crane, for the care he gave them. To honor Crane, the France family is naming a room in the newly enhanced Cedars-Sinai Labor and Delivery Unit. The Amy & Brian France Physician Sleep Room in Honor of Paul Crane, M.D., will be a place where physicians can sleep during all-night shifts. The Frances were motivated to create the tribute because of the attention and care Crane offered throughout Mrs. France’s pregnancy, they said. “We are deeply grateful to Dr. Crane and everyone at Cedars-Sinai for helping us deliver two happy, healthy babies,” said Amy France. “We know obstetricians spend many long nights at the hospital; and we love the idea of supporting valued caregivers who need a place to recharge.” A longtime member of the CedarsSinai community, Crane operates a private practice dedicated to the care of pregnant women and new mothers.

UCLA, Operation Mend Help Heal Scars Of War

A partnership between UCLA Health System, Brooke Army Medical Center and VA-Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System is helping servicemen and women wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thus far, 52 combat veterans have been treated at UCLA. “It is a privilege for UCLA Health System to help our country’s men and women in the military,” says Dr. David T. Feinberg, president of UCLA Health System. “We are honored to partner with Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) to help heal America’s wounded warriors.” The surgeries are led by Dr. Timothy Miller, UCLA reconstructive and plastic surgeon and a Vietnam veteran. “These service members have given a great sacrifice to our country,” Miller says. “I feel it is my obligation to help them in any way I possibly can … and to the extent that I can, I am grateful.” Some of the clinical services provided include: facial reconstruction, hand surgery, maxillofacial surgery, urology, orthopaedic surgery, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, upper extremity transplantation, traumatic brain injury research, advanced diagnostics, suicide prevention, and FOCUS (Families OverComing Under Stress).

Joint Commission Names St. John’s Among Top Performers In Nation St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica was one of two hospitals named Wednesday by The Joint Commission as a top performer in the nation on key quality measures. As the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America, The Joint Commission recognized St. John’s based on data reported about evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and children’s asthma. St. John’s was named with St. Francis Health Center in Topeka, Kan. Both hospitals are members of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System and are two of only 405 U.S. hospitals and critical access hospitals earning the distinction of top performer for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. “Our associates are committed to providing effective, high-quality care at all of our facilities and we are extremely proud to be recognized by The Joint

Commission.” commented Mike Slubowski, president and CEO of Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System. Each top-performing hospital met two, 95 percentile performance thresholds. First, each hospital achieved performance of 95 percent or above on a single, composite score that includes all the accountability measures for which it reports data to The Joint Commission, including measures that had fewer than 30 eligible cases or patients. Second, each hospital met, or exceeded, a 95 percent performance target for every accountability measure for which it reports data, excluding any measures with fewer than 30 eligible cases or patients. The 405 organizations identified as attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for the full previous year (2010) represent approximately 14 percent of Joint Commission-accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals that report core measure performance data.

St. John’s Presents Breast Cancer Lectures Each year, nearly 200,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Pituitary Disorders Topic Of Symposium To raise awareness and educate people about the signs and symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of pituitary disorders, the John Wayne Cancer Institute (JWCI) at St. John’s Health Center will host its second free California Hormonal & Pituitary Health Symposium, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 22 at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center, The Edye Second Stage, 1310 11th St. “Our mission is to increase public awareness about the signs and symptoms of pituitary hormonal disorders and pituitary tumors, as well as the major advances being made in the medical and surgical treatments of these problems,” said Dr. Daniel F. Kelly, director of St. John’s Brain Tumor Center and Pituitary Disorders Program and JWCI faculty member. “Ounce-for-ounce, the pituitary gland is by far our most under-appreciated yet essential body part.” Situated directly below the brain and optic nerves behind the nasal sinuses and weighing less than a gram, the pituitary is often called the “master gland” since it regulates so many critical body functions. Pituitary hormones control growth and development, sexuality and reproductive function, metabolism, the response to stress, electrolyte and water balance and quality of life. The pituitary can be affected by genetic disorders, brain trauma and by tumors that develop in and around the gland. For information on the symposium or to register, visit www.brain-tumor.org, call Pat Fitzwater, 805-300-9154 or e-mail pat@academiceventmanagement.com.

That's what art is supposed to be–art purely for art's sake.” Minoo offers similar sentiment regarding her craft. She focuses her lens on the natural juxtapose of the hustle and bustle “urban street life with peace and serenity.” The emerging photographer reflects, “I try to find that one thing that represents the center calm. I am passionate about

capturing moments that convey beauty in the world that is so often overlooked” Both artists’ attribute extensive travel aboard and childhood experiences as major factors toward the discovery of their photography. Freedman recalled while growing up “art was as much a part of my education as formal academics.” Upon graduating from college, Minoo found her inspiration in the streets of Paris, Rome, Barcelona and New York City. She discovered the lens allowed her to “capture those candid moments” and “cross boundaries” she would not normally venture. Sahar Minoo’s work is featured at her website, saharminoo.com.

PICCA PERU

Restaurant Review by

M. SPENCER HECHT

I was surfing online about a month ago, just checking out what was hot in the always evolving, always cosmopolitan LA restaurant scene. I was pleasantly surprised coming across the news that a new, very chic, and very gourmet Peruvian eatery had opened in town, and that the celebrated chef was the #1 Peruvian chef in the entire USA. When I walked up the stairs of this formidable, fashionable establishment located near Century City, I knew right away this was going to be a special treat. Sure enough, Picca lived up to the hype and then some. One of the hottest places on the circuit presently, you can feel the energy in the building right away. Even before eating a thing, the sheer excitement of the ambience, along with the beautiful people decked out in LA casual wear, mostly drinking exotic South American libations you have never heard of, creates an atmosphere of youthful exuberance that is fun, albeit slightly loud on the ears. To start, we opted for pisco sours, an absolutely delicious concoction made from Peruvian Pisco liquor, a kind of South American spirit, or eau de vie, made from grapes, and very strong. PICCA PERU The level of the cuisine was confirmed when the first dish arrived, 9575 West Pico Blvd. a wonderfully fresh tuna tartare, sitting on a bed of ripe avocado, and Los Angeles, CA 90035 seasoned with soy sauce with a hint of Japanese sesame oil. The next 310-277-0133 dish, an appetizer plate of raw scallops topped with sea urchin, confirmed the heavy Japanese accent of Picca, which boasts extremely fresh, premium seafood. It was as good as at any Japanese sushi bar in town. And, Picca even offers high-quality sushi for those so inclined. Next, I opted for the ceviche criollo, an absolutely delectable, lightly marinated sea bass dish garnished with a type of Peruvian corn which I had never tasted. The subtle lime flavor and spice of the marinade did not overpower the quality and freshness of the sea bass, as is so often the case with inferior ceviche preparations. This was clearly the creation of a master chef. My lovely companion, a ceviche enthusiast who actually hails from Lima, said this was the absolute best she had ever eaten. We also sampled the black cod skewers, seasoned with a spicy ancholde sauce that was wonderfully flavorful, but again did not overpower the high quality and freshness of the delicate black cod. Next we tried the special pollo saltado, a classic Peruvian chicken stew made with onions, garlic and tomato. Again, my Peruvian friend was really happy with the dish, and noted just how much better Picca’s version of this old mainstay was compared to other lesser Peruvian restaurants dotting the LA landscape. To finish the meal, we decided to go with the massive 32-ounce special rib eye steak, served sliced on a plank, and seasoned to the hilt with Peruvian spices and garlic. The steak is marinated for six hours in a special vacuum sealed bag prior to grilling, and the flavor of the beef was truly sensational, which is good because at $72 an order, this dish is not cheap. All in all, Picca is a fantastic find for those seeking a premium and highly gourmet ethnic dining experience. As in most high-end restaurants, it’s hard to get out for less than $50-$70 per person if you order the great dishes we did, and wash them down with pisco sours. But it’s worth it. Spencer Hecht is a professor of Japanese Literature living in Japan, and is in town for a few weeks visiting his family.

Fate Of Neutra’s Kronish House Still In Limbo By Marla Schevker The fate of the last remaining Beverly Hills house designed by World War II architect Richard Neutra still remains in limbo. The 60-day stay on demolition, granted by the City Council at their August 5 meeting, ended Monday, Oct. 10 and it is unclear whether the LA Conservancy and Realtor Susan Smith are any closer to finding a buyer. Adrian Scott Fine, Director of Advocacy at the LA Conservancy, said they are still hoping someone comes forward to buy the iconic house. “We’re still working very hard (to attract) someone and we’ve been doing that for the last 60 days,” Fine said. “A lot more people (have come out to see the house) than otherwise was happening before. We’ve been working all the contacts we have. We have really been leaving no stone unturned,” Smith said because of a legal agreement she could not discuss the status of the sale. However, she did tell The Courier that at least 60 to 70 qualified buyers have come and looked at the house. The LA Conservancy has

used the 60-day stay to put the word out regarding the house, Fine said. “If we had not had the demolition delay, we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to see if there was someone out there who didn’t know about the house or needed the encouragement from ourselves or others to see the house and find out what they can do with it,” Fine said. “I think we’ve taken full advantage of the opportunity.” The Neutra house was sold in a foreclosure auction in January for $5.8 million by Soda Partners, LLC. They then put it on the market for almost $14 million. In July, after it remained unsold, Soda Partners applied for a demolition permit. As of press time, the demolition permit had not been issued. Taking the first step towards a historic preservation ordinance, the City Council unanimously decided to establish a two-year pilot program of the Mills Act at the Sept. 20 meeting.

on Film A puffy Cage and the still beautiful Kidman are much too animated as they follow the stilted direction of Joel Schumacher. If their acting were an edible product, it would be recalled and taken off the shelves immediately. As for screenwriter Karl Gajdusek, he seems to know a lot about diamonds, but nothing about crafting a believable script. However, he is adept with writing about stereotypical bad guys and dialogue. And, the confusing flashbacks do nothing to enhance a plot line (see ‘TRESPASS,’ page 15)

that is confusing enough to begin with. Sarah (Kidman) and Kyle (Cage) a successful diamond dealer, live in an elegant home equipped with a state-ofthe-art security system. However, they don’t seem to have that solid of a relationship. Their daughter Avery (Liana Liberato) is a rebellious teenager (is there any other?) who defies them when they forbid her to attend a party with her promiscuous friend, Kendra. Avery runs upstairs, locks her door and scampers out of the house where bad-girl Kendra is waiting in her car. They take off for the party where there are other obnoxious teenagers drinking,

Kyle adamantly refuses and gives them a lesson on how difficult it would be to sell the priceless stones to a fence. They listen patiently, but then start to pummel the two of them mercilessly. Meanwhile, the puritanical Avery, realizing her mistake, refuses to take drugs or have sex with one of the guys and calls a cab.

An estimated 15 million Americans, including nearly six million children, have a life-threatening food allergy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that food allergies result in more than 300,000 ambulatorycare visits a year among children. Registration for the walk is now open at www.foodallergywalk.org. Individuals, families, community groups, and anyone else wishing to raise funds for FAAN may register free. The two-mile walk will start with check-in beginning at 11 a.m. Following the walk, participants can enjoy a rockwall, face painting, giveaways like an iPad2 from Dey Pharma, and other activities.

on the Alley. All proceeds of the event will go to the Circle of Care Foundation. The event will be honoring actor and motivational speaker J.R. Martinez with the “Spirit of Hope” award, created to honor burn survivors who inspire others with their actions. Martinez who is known for his television roles on All My Children and Dancing With The Stars, suffered burns to more than 40 percent of his body in a roadside bomb attack while serving in Iraq. Throughout the course of his 34-month recovery, he endured 33 different surgeries. Since that time, Martinez has become a sought-after motivational speaker and dedicated himself tirelessly to helping the burn community. Circle of Care Foundation recently completed a strategic

repositioning and now concentrates exclusively on supporting the burn community. The programs began at Grossman Burn Center through direct patient assistance and funding for the burn survivor family camp. The Circle of Care Foundation “Courtesy Condo” used to house family members of burn survivors undergoing treatment at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital. New programs will expand throughout the Southland and beyond. Because Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills completely underwrote the event, 100 percent of the funds raised from The Ultimate Trunk Show will be going to the Circle of Care Foundation.

In lieu of not building, the EIR indicates the reduction of residential units with increased office space is the superior environmentally alternative, as it would “reduce noise/vibration, air quality and shading impacts to a greater extent.” Last April’s Notice of Preparation for the project, generated significant criticism from concerned citizens regarding potential traffic, air quality, and noise level to bordering Beverly High.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences celebrated the power of TV–and specifically, eight programs which have had significant impact on the viewing audience and the ability to spark positive social change. Honored were The 16th Man, The Big C, Friday Night Lights, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Parenthood, Private Practice and War Torn 1861-2010. The programs selected this year explore such critical issues as sexual abuse and assault, racism, mental health and trauma, teen pregnancy, autism, living with a life-threatening disease and good nutrition in the fight against childhood obesity. Presenters and honorees included... Chris Connelly, Lori McCreary, Holly Robinson Peete, Jenny Bicks, Darlene Hunt, Aimee Tergarden, Jason Katims, Randy Jackson, Dominique Dawes, Ryan Seacrest, Christina Ricci, Scott Berkowitz, Ray Dotch, Candi Carter, Monica Potter, Peter Krause, Jason Katims, KaDee Strickland, Betsy Beers, Amy Brenneman, Paul Adelstein, Caterina Scorsone, John Shaffner, Sheila Nevins, James Gandolfini, Lauren Graham, Erika Christensen, Max Burkholder, Matt Lauria, and Florence Henderson. Dana Delany, star of ABC's Body Of Proof, hosted the event at The Beverly Hills Hotel. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, founded in 1946 at the birth of the medium, is a non-profit devoted to the advancement of telecommunication arts, sciences and creative leadership. ****** The American Diabetes Association of L.A. hosted a roast fundraiser that surely would make Dean Martin proud. Angelenos came and partied with the stars and politicos while helping to raise contributions to support education and prevention of diabetes. At this year’s 14th annual Political Roast in The Beverly Hilton, L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine was skewered about his girlfriends, being a former policeman and his unique style. He was even at one point flanked by belly dancers. Zine, who at previous events, has enjoyed taking shots at some of the past honorees, rides his Harley Davidson on weekends and is known as one of the most colorful characters in Los Angeles. Emcees–actor Jason Alexander and KABC radio host Peter Tilden–roasted just about every politician present.

The event was a huge success, attended by 1,000+ and raising more than $50,000 for local diabetes programs. ****** At the Franklin Canyon Ranch, Sundance Institute, the renowned non-profit arts group, hosted its first-ever L.A. area benefit “Celebrate Sundance Institute.” This festive evening saluted the institute founded by Robert Redford and was hosted by its trustees and Celebration Host Committee. After remarks from Cary Fukunaga and an introduction by Sundance Institute's founder/president Bob Redford, the event honored Michelle Satter, Sundance's director of the Feature Film Program since 1981, with the Vanguard award and celebrated the feature film3 program’s 30th anniversary. The evening also featured remarks from Wally Weisman, trustees chair, Stacy Peralta, Brit Marling, John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, and Keri Putnam, the institute’s executive director. To close out the night, Fitz and the Tantrums performed a soulful set for the crowd. The event raised funds in support of the non-profit Sundance Institute and its year-round programs in feature film, documentary, theater, film music and Native programming. The annual film festival brings nearly 50,000 people to Utah including filmmakers, musicians, visual artists, students, social change activists, cultural influencers and journalists from more than 110 countries. Celebration Host Committee included Jennifer Aniston, Miguel Arteta, John August, Jason Blum, Jess Cagle, Lisa Cholodenko, Scott Frank, Steve Gaghan, John Gatins, Michael Goldenberg, Steve Golin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Susannah Grant, Jon Hamm, John Lee Hancock, Lynette Howell, Karyn Kohl, Jeremy Konner, Bettina Korek, Kasi Lemmons, Brit Marling, Tracy McKnight, Chris McQuarrie, and James Newton Howard. Still more were David Hyde Pierce, Josh Radnor, Mark Roybal, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey and Catherine Soros, Quentin Tarantino, Ondi Timoner, Mike White, Alfre Woodard and Warren Zavala. Many of them attended the event as well as Jennifer Arnold, Don Cheadle, Lauren Greenfield, Clark Gregg, Anna Kendrick, Braden King, Christine Lahti, Demitri Martin, Derek Waters, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. ******

DREAMMAKERS (Continued from page 4)

Josephson, who was instrumental in beginning the program, pointed to the districts’ low college admissions record and a lack of funding for extracurricular activities as the reason why this program is vital for the community and ultimately the nation. While money is dwindling for activities outside of the classroom, Dreammakers will provide a real-world experience for students who have a desire to get into the film industry. The BHUSD Board of Education has also signed a letter of support, citing the programs to be beneficial for students. Chief Engineer for the Lennon Bus, Jeff Sobel is acting as a producer of the program, overseeing all aspects of it and interacting with the students to help them achieve their goals. He said the Dreammakers program, which is an afterschool and weekend program, gives students opportunities they can’t find in the classroom. “It’s a real world project,” Sobel said. “They are actually going to produce something that has a potential place in the real world, which means dealing with real-world problems.” Another important aspect of the program, Sobel noted, is the nation-wide collaboration.

So far, the program has brought together students from Beverly High, Lou Dantzler High, the Success Through the Arts and Thomas Jefferson High School For Science and Technology in Virginia, the #1 school in the country from 2007 - 2011. Thomas Jefferson students will be responsible for the online components. “I think the inter-district collaboration is an extremely powerful aspect (of the program),” Sobel said. “If it were just kids from one school, they would be in their comfort zones.” Kristiane Forrer’s daughter Quinn will participate in Dreammakers. Although Forrer initially had apprehensions, after learning about the program she said she’s excited. “I think it’s an amazing opportunity,” Forrer said. “Ideally the program will do really well and she was part of the beginning of it. (Dreammakers) is a cool legacy not just for the school, but for the kids.” Having a job for every interest, Zoe said the program will be inspiring for participants. It will help those struggling in school find a niche. “This program will push everyone to experiment and see what they’re good at. That is going to open up so many doors for everyone later on in life,” Zoe said. The students will be responsible for creating a pilot

television episode from forming a production company to casting to developing the show to shooting to editing. But they won’t have to do it alone. Part of the program will be providing professional mentors for the students. “Usually you have to get an internship or be lucky to find that mentorship and we’re building it into the program,” Sobel said. The Dreammakers group has already met twice at Frederick Douglas High School, which is in a church. They created a rough sketch for the show. The first round of casting, to find other interested students, will take place on Oct. 22 in the Salter Theater at BHHS. The kids will be video conferencing every Monday with students from Thomas Jefferson. Josephson said the group plans to begin shooting in March or April, after everyone is trained. “We want to start doing things as fast as possible but with the best quality possible,” She said. “I don’t want to go to school tomorrow, I just want to keep doing this.” For more information on Dreammakers or casting, visit dreammakersmedia.tumblr.com.

Board President Lisa Korbatov, who has continued to push for the addition of library media teachers back to the BHUSD, said many BHUSD children including her own, have never seen a librarian in a BHUSD library. “I hope this will be the beginning of growth and thriving for all curriculum,” Korbatov said. “I hope this is the beginning of turning a corner. There is Arts for All and Literacy for All, anything to safeguard growth for children in all areas is important.

Hubbard Pleads Not Guily To New Charge

THE NEW YORK TIMES SUNDAY MAGAZINE CROSSWORD PUZZLE

By Marla Schevker Former BHUSD Superintendent Jeffrey Hubbard pled not guilty to an additional charge of misappropriation of funds Tuesday. L.A. Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg released Hubbard on his own recognizance. According to the indictment, when Hubbard was superintendent of the BHUSD, he “directed a subordinate to increase the pay of employee Nora Roque. When Hubbard

ANSWERS FOUND IN NEXT WEEK’S PAPER…

ordered the salary increase, he did not transmit to the board for approval.” Hubbard is also accused of giving a $20,000 payment and increasing the car allowance of former BHUSD Director of Facilities and Planning Karen Christiansen “in violation of her contract and without board approval,” the indictment stated. The discovery of the additional crimes was found while investigating the initial charges.

Roque currently serves as director of classified personnel of the Newport Mesa Unified School District where Hubbard works as superintendent. Hubbard took a paid leave of absence in January to work on his defense and returned to the NMUSD in July. Hubbard is set to go to trial on all charges on Nov. 10. If found guilty, he could face up to six years in prison. Roque is not charged with any criminal wrongdoing.

L.A. Hotel Developer Gets Seven Years in $21 Million Fraud A Los Angeles real estate developer who formerly owned a downtown hotel and one of his employees were sentenced today to federal prison and ordered to pay restitution for stealing about $21 million that was supposedly kept in protected trust accounts for clients. Ezri Namvar, 59, of Brentwood, and 63-year-old Hamid Tabatabai of Agoura Hills were convicted in May of multiple counts of wire fraud by a Los Angeles federal jury that deliberated for about three hours after an eight-day trial. U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson sentenced Namvar -former owner of the Marriott in downtown Los Angeles -- to seven years behind bars and ordered him to pay restitution of $21 million, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Monica Mange. Tabatabai was sentenced to nearly two years -- 21

months -- in federal prison and also ordered to pay a share of the $21 million, the prosecutor said. Both defendants were told to surrender to authorities on Nov. 8. Evidence showed that four victims deposited around $25 million with Namvar's Namco Financial Exchange Corp. to be placed in trust accounts for tax purposes. Instead, Namvar and Tabatabai, the firm's controller, used the money to meet the company's payroll or transferred it to family members, according to prosecutors, who said the four victims received only about $4 million back from their deposits with Namvar's firm. Defense attorneys argued that the case was not a fraud scheme but a contract dispute between the victims and the defendants. -City News Service

Connie Martinson Talks Books

Michael Hiltzik has written The New Deal: A Modern History (Free Press $30), sure to be a Pulitzer Prize contender. The behind the scenes information about Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his cabinet reads like a novel, except that every fact is documented in the notes. Hiltzik begins with FDR’s election and the longer period at that time between election and inauguration. America was in the throes of a financial depression, Herbert Hoover and his advisers were practically begging FDR to meet with them and seek a solution. FDR would not meet nor listen until after he was inaugurated. As FDR was being sworn in, his economic advisers were meeting with Hoover’s people. Where Hoover wanted to “shut down the banks,” FDR in his first fireside chat referred to it as a “bank holiday.” When they reopened more money was redeposited than had been taken out in the financial hysteria. Never doubt the power of words and the delivery which was FDR’s Godgiven voice that made believers in every home with a radio. The title, “New Deal” was not unique to FDR. It had been the title of a series in The New Republic and Brain Truster, as well as speechwriter Ray Moley had used the expression in one FDR speech. and it was picked up by a cartoonist. The country was in a massive stand-still as he took office, but FDR promised action in his first hundred days. It was the conception of The Emergency Banking Act which

“suspended the convertibility of dollars into gold for U.S. citizens, a right that has never been restored, and temporarily forbade the export of gold.” It was the Tennessee Valley Authority bringing public power to the people which, incidentally, was fought by Wendell Wilkie. There was the Farm Relief Bill devised by Henry Wallace. And there was FDR’s baby, the Civilian Conservation Corps, better known as CCC. The plan was to put unemployed young men to work in the forests and national parks. They came from all over America, trained and were paid with 25 percent sent to their families. As Hitzlik said when we taped, here were boys from the cities meeting those from the farmlands. I did mention that this was an early training for the army that was to come. Hitzlik writes about how the Depression exposed the weakness in the national housing and mortgage system. Short term mortgages that only paid interest and suddenly were due in a climate of unemployment led to more disaster. It should be a must reading for Congress and the White House today. When they tried to cut out Veterans of WWI under The Economy Act FDR needed both houses of Congress to stand with him, but in 1934 the Act was rescinded. The National Recovery Administration, according to Hitzlik, disappointed its constituencies. It is here that Hitzlik introduces us to Gen. Hugh S. Johnson, an unforgettable character who has been forgotten in the history of the New

Deal. His relationship with Frances Perkins, the proper Bostonian, who was the first woman to serve in a presidential cabinet as secretary of Labor, was a Tracy-Hepburn situation. It was Perkins who devised and pushed through Social Security for labor. In the WPA under Harry Hopkins, Hallie Flanagan ran the Federal theatre which gave birth to John Houseman and Orson Welles who produced the musical The Cradle Will Rock which was too political for the time and caused them to leave and form The Mercury Theatre. FDR starting in essence from Ground Zero surrounded himself with the best brains and ideas. He may not have worked out the details which he left to others, but was what the country needed at that time – a pragmatic leader. ****** Lisa See has followed up her Shanghai Girls with a sequel in Dreams Of Joy (Random House $26). “Everything I thought I knew about my birth, my parents, my grandparents and who I am has been a lie,” she muses. “The woman I thought was my mother is my Aunt Pearl.” Her Aunt May is actually her mother and Sam, the man she thought was her father, was no relation. The latter had committed suicide due to Joy joining a Chinese student group which the FBI considered a communist front. Joy’s real father is an artist in Shanghai whom both her mother and aunt loved. Joy has determined to run away to Shanghai to find him. It is 1957–the year of Mao. She flies to Hong Kong and must give up her passport and papers to be allowed into Red China. In Shanghai, she finds where her father, Li Zhi-ge lives. She assuages his doubts of her being his daughter by showing him a photo of Pearl and May. He is leaving for the countryside to teach art to the peasants and will take her with him. Meanwhile, Pearl is distraught about Joy running away and knows she must bring her back to America. In China, she visits the family village to find Louie Yun, who will handle the money sent to her by May from the U.S. It will be hidden in old clothes by a relative. Pearl returns to Shanghai where she looks up Li Zhi-ge,

Astrology

By Holiday Mathis TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 14). Your beauty is enhanced by your kindness. You’ll notice you have a strange power within your close relationships. You'll let someone go in April and find out that they want you all the more because of the freedom that comes with loving you. November, May and June are the most profitable months. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are starting to realize that doing the right thing for yourself once or twice a week is simply not enough. It’s important that you make regular practice of it. Repeat the action often until it becomes habitual. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You would rather make others feel relaxed, or even superior, than intimidated. You’ll humble yourself even when you are fully aware that it is unnecessary or inaccurate to do so. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A sadness in you will find release. This might come about in your life or through your identification with another person’s story. Once the sadness is gone, something warm and tender will rush in to fill its place. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Morning brings a fortuitous event, one that you expect will occur again in the future. Your expectation of continued luck may be the very thing that makes it so. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You seem like you have everything together. This isn’t exactly true, though. Be mindful of your unmet needs. Tell people what they are so that you can give others the chance to help you. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). You think you’re fine on your own, but until you experience a deeper sense of fellowship and community, you won’t realize what you're missing. Reach out and enjoy a sense of belonging. ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Ask for what you want. Your needs will be met. This might be difficult for you to believe, having often been ignored by those too self-absorbed to really see you. Today will be different. Just ask. TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You need guidance and direction. It is unfair of you to believe you will find your way on your own. Why waste time wandering aimlessly? Ask for assistance or, at the very least, a map. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Seek relationships with those emotionally available. You need to be around a giver. With the proper nurturing, you could heal an old wound. It’s time for this to happen. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You realize that even if you are undeniably in the right, arguing with a stranger is senseless and will get you exactly nowhere. You’ll instead find a way to let the other person save face and move quickly on. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your physical response to stress might not be to your liking, but rest assured your body knows what it's doing. It’s giving you the energy to handle things and handle them well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You feel safe, even with people you don’t know too well. You’ll open up in some way. Not only will you express your truth, but you also will recognize that it is your right to do so. only to find he has gone to the country. Her family home has been taken over by the government. Her old family cook is now commander of the home. Every room is occupied except her bedroom which is exactly as she left it. According to Lisa See, the government did respect Chinese culture in that those who left would return with their homes kept as they left them. There is her mother’s friend with bound feet who still lives with servants as if nothing has changed. In order to eat, Pearl must work as a street cleaner, often

bringing home old calendars with her and May’s picture on them. Z.G. returns with Joy. (There is a great scene where they are entertained at dinner by Chairman Mao.) How they are able to escape turns the story into a thriller and to tell you how would be to spoil the suspense. The history is made relevant by incorporating characters who are living through it. Lisa See has written one of the finer books of this year.

October 14, 2011 | Page 34

From the Publisher CLIF SMITH BEVERLY HILLS–CENTER OF FASHION Famed couturier Valentino two years ago proclaimed, “Rodeo Drive is the most important fashion street in the world” as he accepted his award on our Rodeo Drive Committee's famed “Walk of Style.” This year, international supermodel, actress and entrepreneur Iman, and acclaimed Italian fashion house, Missoni, will receive the coveted plaque to be placed along Rodeo. This week, the annual delegation of Beverly Hills notables to New York City led by Mayor Barry Brucker again hosted the CEO's and leaders of the world's greatest fashion houses. We invite–they come. We are a key part of their world, even thousands of miles away. They know it and they come each year to get an update about this supremely important investment they have in Beverly Hills. Beverly Hills' celebration of Fashion's Night Out tops everywhere except Manhattan for impact, importance and patronage. Last night, the greatest costume designers of the Italian opera world premiered their other-worldly creations in “Il Teatro alla Moda,” the new exhibit curated by our fledgling Annenberg Center for the Arts (the old Post Office) and located in the new MGM building. You really need to see this. Next week, the French government brings the finest of French jewelry to town in a private showing. The Courier is a sponsor of the exhibit. Throughout our City, fashion reigns supreme as it should–and not just on Rodeo Drive. Canon, Dayton, Brighton, Beverly Drive, Santa Monica Boulevard–all feature the finest collections of fashions found anywhere in the world with one hugely unique feature: they are in Beverly Hills. Added to this is the fact that our stores are not just for the richest, but we feature merchants with goods in all price ranges. The net result is well over $1 billion in retail sales every year. That is a staggering amount of money. Is this simply “rich people playing?” No. This is big business and it is what pays for most of the cost of our police, fire, streets, services and indirectly even our schools. It directly employs thousands and thousands of people and provides the livelihood for countless others. Recall the scene from The Devil Wears Prada wherein Meryl Streep lambasts snooty too-smart-for-the-world Anne Hathaway's shabbily-dressed (at the time) character. Streep (thinly disguised from Vogue's Anna Wintour) gives her a one minute dissertation on the jobs, the factories, the businesses, the benefits the fashion industry creates. A chastened Hathaway then, of course, performs her “ugly duckling into a swan” metamorphosis and emerges as the glam of the glams. In today's Courier, we welcome Fashion Director Tawny Sanders' latest installment. No publication comes close to covering Beverly Hills including its fashion icons like The Courier does. We don't just print pretty pictures, we work at the center of the industry–the Beverly Hills fashion industry. It's why so many people come here. It's a huge part of what makes Beverly Hills “Beverly Hills.” It's one reason our readership is sky-high and growing. We commend everyone in our City who supports our fashion industry and we particularly commend our annual trade delegation to New York. The delegation is comprised of the mayor, some City officials, representatives of the Chamber of Commerce like President Bruce Schulman of Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills, the Conference & Visitors Bureau, and our leading hoteliers. Some in the City may dismiss this trip as a boondoggle. It is not. It is three to four days of 16 hours of meetings, promotions and working. Our team works hard pitching our City. No one works harder at it than our mayors–Brucker this year; Jimmy Delshad last year; Linda Briskman a few years ago. They keep our profile high and they bring back business. Without hotels full of guests and our tourism taxes growing, we also think it is time for this particular City Council to return to honoring the decades-old commitment to our business community which they rescinded earlier this year. But that's a topic for another day. We think Valentino was correct. Beverly Hills is the center. The Courier is proud to play its part. POLICE BLOTTER and closet, and stole items.

LETTERS Thank you for being unrelenting in putting forward information on the actions of our mayor. I am having a hard time accepting that we have an elected steward of the people sworn to uphold the interests of our City and its residents who is aligning with the MTA to tunnel under our sole high school and the houses of residents. How will this effect the physical integrity of these and adjacent houses and their market value? We are talking about people's homes and their lives! Mr. mayor, do you want that tunnel under your home or under your neighbor's home? If the mayor's thrust is not to protect Beverly Hills and its residents, and he is openly adversarial to the Board of Education and its efforts to thwart tunneling under the high school...then in whose interest is he acting? As to Willie Brien and Julian Gold, who support the mayor on this issue (in violation of their campaign promises), they may feel powerful as a majority on the City Council. However, in the context of the entire community, they are a minority of three. Christine Skirmuntt Ford ****** What a difference 100 votes in an election can make. Instead of electing Nancy

Rabbi Jacob Pressman YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW I am blessed with a good friend, in Florida, Rabbi Jack Riemer, who in his sermon raised some fascinating questions, and I am taking the liberty of sharing some with you. •25 years ago, we all wanted to have long hair. .......Today, most of us would be satisfied, if we just had hair. •25 years ago, we were all into acid. .......Today, we are all into antacid. •25 years ago we all wanted to go out to a hip joint. .......Today, we’re all afraid we may soon need a new hip joint. •25 years ago, we all yearned to look like Marlin Brando. .......Today, unfortunately, most of us look like Marlin Brando. •When I was young, closets were for putting things into. .......Now they are for coming out of. •When I was young, a chip was a piece of wood, .......And hardware was hardware, .......And software had not been invented yet, .......When I was young, “aids” were kids who helped out in the school office, or who volunteered in the hospital, not the name of a disease. •When I was young, there was no xerox, no radar, no contact lenses, no credit cards, no computers, no dual career families, no mutual funds, no VCRs and no DVDs. •When I was young, when we spoke about ‘the pill’, we meant aspirin. •When I was young people got married first and THEN they lived together. •A few years ago, if you wanted to see a movie, you had to go to a theatre. .......Now every film that you want to see is available to you on your cell phone. If you wanted to read a book, you had to go to the library or bookstore. .......Now you have E books, and you can read them on your computer or phone. At the rate we are going, in a few more years, children will ask their parents: “Mommy, what’s a cell phone?” We live in a fast changing world in which the time between when a new invention comes in and you simply have to have it, and the time when this new invention goes out and you no longer need it, has become shorter and shorter. And so we are all like passengers on a subway that is hurtling down the tracks, at many miles per second, and so we clutch on to the straps above our heads for support, as the train goes faster and faster and faster.
