Funeral Services Held For
Paula Kent Meehan
By Victoria Talbot
Funeral services were held Saturday at Forest Lawn Memorial
Park for Paula Kent Meehan, one of
Beverly Hills’ most beloved residents and philanthropists.
Hundreds of mourners gathered to pay their respects to her
and to her family, and bid farewell
to Meehan, who left a lasting legacy in the City of Beverly Hills.
Meehan’s legacy includes her
generous support for the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing
Arts and her tireless dedication to

Horacek intends to prove
that the nearly 30,000 square
foot property (that number includes a subterranean basement) which features a swimming pool, detached pool deck
and subterranean garage for
around a dozen vehicles, has
committed, and must be held
accountable for, numerous violations. Those include massive
cut and fill grading without approved permits, hauling thousands of cubic yards of dirt
without an approved haul route
and creating an illegal building
pad to circumvent hillside area
height limits.
Perhaps most egregious of
all of the alleged misdeeds is
Horacek’s claim that essentially, almost all of the permits 901
Strada Vecchia has received are
erroneous because they were
all based on alleged illegal
grading done at the site.

As the trend of giant,

Michael Merden Is Homeless In Beverly Hills
By Victoria Talbot
Michael Merden, 39, lives
in the alley between Crescent
and Canon Drives. He sleeps
on broken cardboard boxes behind the Whole Foods market
and spends his days cozying
up to a dumpster behind the
Crescent Parking structure.
“I’ve been here since ’99,”
he says. “I moved to North
Hollywood in 1983, and had
an apartment for about six
months.” He doesn’t remember, or won’t say, how he lost
his apartment, but since then,
Merden has lived on the street.
He lives in a small community of people who are
chronically homeless, gleaning
their meals from merchant
handouts and money proffered
from locals. In fact, among the
chronic homeless who choose
this City, many do not even
panhandle. Their needs are met
in the symbiotic relationship
that develops with proximity
and time.
That proximity is an everyday reality for many of the
City’s businesses as individuals
like Merden take care of their
bodily needs in the public arena.

Rodeo Drive Committee Vows To Take Up Issue

The

Committee banded together
this week in an effort to
improve shoppers’ experiences
by addressing issues that are of
increasing concern to merchants lining the most prestigious retail block of Beverly

With plans to work with
the City and the Police

the Committee formed a subcommittee to address issues
including the professional panhandlers who walk the streets
for money, the ice cream trucks
that pay a few dollars to park at
meters to sell their treats, and
CD sellers who operate under

Beverly Hills Doctor Michael Levi Operates On
Los Angeles Zoo Orangutan Eloise
Eloise The Orangutan
By Laura Coleman
A few weeks ago,
Beverly
Hills
resident
Michael Levi, a podiatrist at
St. John's Health Center, had
a rather atypical patient: a
46-year-old
orangutan
named Eloise.
“It’s a nice, diverse
change for me,” said Levi,
who sits on the Los Angeles
Zoo’s Medical Advisory
Board. “Usually I do
humans.”
As a result of what
appears to be cerebral palsy,
Eloise’s toes had incurvated
to the point where her nails
were slicing into the pads of
her feet, causing her pain.
Unlike with Levi’s typical patient (Eloise was his
first orangutan), instead of
having a consultation, the
podiatrist visited the zoo to
understand how the animal
moved before operating on
the 110-pound primate to
straighten her toes.
Levi said Eloise was an
ideal patient throughout the
30-minute procedure, for
which she was anaesthetized.
And after a few days of
post-op care that involved
soaking Eloise’s feet in warm
water, the L.A. Zoo’s
beloved orangutan is once
again running around the
grass and playing with other
animals.
“I think she’s a lot happier now,” Levi said.

Transportation Authority's plan to place a subway route under
Beverly Hills High. BHUSD Counsel Jennifer Recine, partner

Beverly Hills Students To Get GATE Program
By Laura Coleman
Starting this year, Beverly
Hills students will once again
have the opportunity to participate in a Gifted and Talented
Education program (GATE) following a unanimous vote by
the Board of Education on
Tuesday.
“This is a start, it’s only a
start,” Board President Noah
Margo underscored of the
$220,000 one-year proposal.
The 2014/15 proposal
includes a hybrid program for
grades 4-8 where students will
have the opportunity to explore
coding, media, the arts, debate
and other STEM/STEAM curricula. The proposal also includes
a plan for a GATE coordinator
as well as a supplemental program led by STAR Education
and a partnership with
PlanetBravo.
The last time the district
had a GATE program was four
years ago.
Chief Academic Officer
Jennifer Tedford said the proposal is an updated version of
one that was brought to the
board several years ago.
GATE funding is now a
component of the Local
Control Funding Formula,
which means that districts must
allocate funds on a local level
to offer programming.
District-wide, 396 students
have been identified as gifted
in BHUSD.

Bel Air residents already
besieged by legions of heavy
haul vehicles, cement mixers
and mega-development were
hit with a new surprise this
week that could be the biggest
calamity yet to plague the bedeviled community. One residence is planned on Somma
Way, a particularly narrow,
steep winding street that only
has room for one vehicle at a
time. Another development is
positioned for the hillside directly opposite the Bel Air Hotel, encompassing eight parcels
from 734-800 Tortuoso Way.
Residents on Somma Way
woke up Wednesday to burning telephone lines. One of the
neighbors had information that
the Los Angeles Department of
Building and Safety (LADBS) is
scheduled to review an application for a hauling permit to
haul over 29,000 cubic yards
of soil from 10697 West Som-
ma Way.
The development is a
40,000 sq. ft. residence, with
16,000 sq. ft. above ground
and a 15,356 sq. ft. “basement” with a 8,960 sq. ft. of
garage to accommodate 16 vehicles. That means the majority
of the construction, 24,316 sq.
ft., is underground.
There are 58 trees on the
property, including four Southern California Black Walnut
trees and three Coast Live
Oaks, which are protected. The
project will include the removal of 38 mature trees.
Three of the protected trees are
slated for removal.
The applicants, Julie Hart

provide access to the site,

Students To Be Fenced In

students will soon find it a bit

vote on Tuesday by the Board
of Education to move forward
with erecting a security fence
around the campus. Likewise,
those wishing to enter the campus will face a bit more of a
challenge to get inside with
just one single point of entry.
“We’re basically closing
off access to the campus,”
Superintendent Gary Woods

Tuesday’s vote authorizes
the district to begin soliciting
bids from contractors to perform work which officials estimate will cost $250,000 and
be charged to Measure E.
On June 27 the Division of
the State Architect (DSA)
approved plans for security
fencing drawn up by DLR
Group Architect.
“We’ve been discussing
this since I’ve been on the
board,” Board President Noah
Margo said. “Hopefully by the
first meeting in August we can
approve a contractor.”
Horace Mann Readies For New School Building
By Laura Coleman
Construction on Horace
Mann’s new school building
appears to be just weeks away
following Tuesday night’s unanimous vote by the Beverly Hills
Board of Education to approve
a $32.1 million contract bid
submitted by Pro West
Constructors.
“They were a highly qualified company that came in as
the
low-bidder,” Board
President Noah Margo said.
The BHUSD received bids
from five construction firms, all
within a 4-percent cost differ-
ential.
“That’s a good sign that we
probably hit all the details that
we needed,” Superintendent
Gary Woods said.
In May, the board directed
staff to rebid the New
Classroom Building Project for
a third time after deciding that
previous bids had been inadequate or irregular.
The California Division of
the State Architect approved
plans and specifications for the
project on Jan. 10.
The board also approved a
budget revision to increase the
project cost by $16.764 million bringing the total site
budget to $78,357 million.
BHUSD consultant Tim
Buresh estimated that the new
building would be ready in 20
months.
He said fencing would
likely go up in two weeks.
Following a unanimous
vote by the board to ratify an
agreement with Totum Corp. to
replace Bernards for program
management and construction
management services, Totum
will be the liaison between the
district and Pro West.

the lot.
Legally, the developer must
notify all neighbors within 300
feet of such a hearing, but residents contend that they were
not notified of the impending
hearing. The BHCourier has
learned that even the neighbor
immediately adjacent was not
notified of the impending hearing.
Area residents have been
petitioning Councilman Koretz
and his office to expand the notification area beyond 300 feet
because of the larger-sized
parcels being developed. And
in this case, Somma is a side
street, which is off of Stone
Canyon, and the impending
haul routs will affect residents
on streets both north and south
of Somma Way.
The property is situated at
the end of the street. Besides
being only between 211 and
239 inches across, the narrow
road is the only means of
ingress and egress for the 22
homes on the street. No vehicle will be able to pass in either
direction.
The haul route, which will
likely take months, if not years,
will directly affect access, traffic and safety in their homes.
At that width, the street
will be impassible when a truck
is on it. In the event of a failure,
no vehicles would be able to
pass. And in the event of a disaster, such as a fire, residents
would be trapped.
It is unknown where construction workers would park,
but it would be impossible on
Somma Way. It is illegal, even
for residents and their guests, to
park on Stone Canyon Rd. below, thanks to the efforts of
Councilmember Paul Koretz of
LA’s 5th District, which includes Bel Air.
Until about 20 years ago,
say residents, Somma Way was
a dirt road. It was paved with
cement, not asphalt, at the urging of L.A. County Supervisor
Zev Yaroslavsky, for $20,000
per household. Now, the streets
they privately funded are going
to be ruined by heavy haul vehicles – if they cannot get their
message out successfully to
LADBS.
Then, on Tortuoso Way, the
development to the south of
Somma Way, eight parcels are
slated for development, acquired by Park Bel Air Holdings, LLC as of June 24 with
Gavin Brodin of Brodin Design
Build.
Located off Stone Canyon
Rd., already beset with potholes, the street has not been
paved in ten years, say residents.
Such a development would
surely be catastrophic for access to this iconic residential
hotel, which is prized for its
serenity and breeding swans.
Bel Air residents are galvanized and have formed the Bel
Air Homeowners Alliance
(BAHA). “Almost one million
cubic yards of dirt have been
removed from the hills in the
last three years,” said Fred
Rosen, BAHA president. “What
are the consequences of that?
No one knows.” Rosen says
that L.A. City is using 19601980 rules that do not apply
with 2014 excavation technology. “All new construction
should be stopped until we get
a handle on it,” he says. “Projects over 20,000 sq. ft. should
be dealt with like commercial
projects.” Rosen would like to
see environmental impact reports for projects like one near
him that is 97,000 sq. ft. “Do
the rights of one property owner outweigh the rights of everybody else,” he asks. If Tortuoso
Way is developed, it will affect
all 1,000 residents in the area
using Stone Canyon Rd.
Rosen has asked that the
hearing on haul routes be postponed until everyone is informed. “I spoke to the staff
from the LADBS Commission
and they said no. “There is no
way for our office to postpone
the hearing date before the
hearing takes place,” wrote
Noah Muhlstein, Planning
Deputy for 5th District Councilman Paul Koretz. Koretz’ district includes Bel Air.
No one was informed of
the hearing on haul routes, says
Rosen. Councilman Paul Koretz’ office did not know until
they were informed by residents.
Rosen and the Bel Air community have been at loggerheads with Koretz’ office, trying to stop development long
enough to put safety measures
into place that could prevent
another Loma Vista accident in
Bel Air. The City of Los Angeles
is not taking notice. But the situation intensifies daily and
LADBS continues to issue permits; the same rules for a 2,000
sq. ft. house are applied to a
90,000 sq. ft. house.
It is time for the Councilman to step up to the plate to
ask City Council to examine
whether the cost of development is worth the cost of a life.

BEVERLY HILLS
901 STRADA VECCHIA
(Continued from page 1)
the property in January 2011,
the LADBS learned a month
later that Hadid has completely
demolished the previous single-family residence and done
extensive grading – all without
permits. At that point, the only
permit that had been issued
was one to backfill the site’s
swimming pool. On February
24, 2011, the LADBS issued
the site an “Order to Comply”
based on the demolition of the
previous residence without
permit and grading being performed without first obtaining a
permit. The Order To Comply
demanded that Hadid “correct
the violation(s)” and pay a fee
of $336.
Another inspection of the
site on March 9 revealed that
unauthorized grading had apparently continued, along with
road cut and unsupported vertical cutting on the southwest
descending slope of the property, all without permit. It was
this round of grading that Horacek claims created a new
roadway across the middle of
the site and an illegal building
pad with thousands of cubic
yards of dirt redistributed
across the site and/or exported,
without permit approval. In the
order, signed off by LADBS Inspector Brian Olson, Hadid
was, among other things, ordered to immediately stop all
work at the site, but given two
months to submit a soils report
and engineering geology report
to the CIty of L.A. for review
and approval.
Those reports were submitted in April 2011, but the problem, according to Horacek, is
that they were based entirely
on the illegal grading that had
already occurred on the site for
several months. One year later
on April 5, 2012, the City of
L.A. finally issued a building
permit and grading permit for
4,888 cubic yards of soil based
on those previously submitted
reports that had been created
after the alleged illegal grading.
Still, the project was unable to
remain in compliance and in
August 2012, the LADBS found
the project’s contractors were
deviating from the approved
grading plans and soils/geologic reports by making non-conforming vertical cuts on the
property line that removed lateral support from adjacent
properties. That was hardly the
end; another pair of Orders to
Comply were issued on the
property on Sept. 10 and Oct.
31 of 2012 after the City found
the property still was not in
compliance.
Hadid stands by the work
on the site and says that all of it
has been done by the book.
“We have our permits.
We’re being inspected daily,
pretty much. Grading inspectors are there, building inspectors are there,” Hadid said. “All
our permits are current.”
Hadid said no illegal grading was done without a permit.
“Before you get a permit
(for grading) you have to have a
topographic map, you have to
drive down to certain areas,
drill a hole and check the soil,”
Hadid said. “The only way you
can go down is to make a small
road to have the machine go
down and drill the soil. This is
testing. Just because he saw a
machine going down the hill
doesn’t mean I’m illegally grading. The inspector comes and
checks to see what’s going on,
and when they realize what
we’re doing, they let it go.”
Olson did not return a call
for comment from The Courier.
Horacek said that his attorneys
would likely be meeting with
Koretz’s Director of Planning
Shawn Bayliss late this week to
discuss how they can get involved on 901 Strada Vecchia.
One main point of contention in Horacek’s letter of
objection to the city of L.A. was
regarding a recent permit application from Hadid for a 17foot high, 385-foot wide retaining wall to be built on the property. That wall would violate
the City’s hillside retaining wall
ordinance (LAMC Section
12.21 C.8), as it exceeds the
LAMC’s 12-foot maximum
height limit for a single retaining wall. Because of that, the
wall should legally require special discretionary approval
from the City’s Zoning Administrator. Horacek’s letter to the
City of L.A. states that the retaining wall is Hadid’s attempt
“to rectify problems that he
created himself by ignoring
multiple orders to comply and
failing to comply with permit
conditions and various code requirements.”
Horacek says unpermitted
grading and construction at
901 Strada Vecchia led to a
mudslide during March of
2014 that flowed down onto
his Rocca Place property. Hadid admitted to The Courier
that he offered to plant new
vegetation and boxed trees
along on the hillside after that
incident, but that Horacek declined. Horacek counters that
doing so would actually increase the risk of slope failures,
as his geologists determined
that boxed trees contribute to
slope failures due to the water
creating a pond in the excavations required for the trees,
soaking into the slope and
weakening the soil. The slope
failed again in April of 2014,
causing more mud to slide onto
Horacek’s residence.
Hadid told The Courier
that the recently applied for 17foot retaining wall is actually a
continuation of a wall currently
at the site. Hadid said the sole
purpose of that wall would be
to protect Horacek’s residence
from any future mudslides,
which Hadid says were simply
the result of a period of rain in
an area that Hadid says has “always had a water retention
July 11, 2014 | Page 11
problem…we put in the permit
for the retaining wall to protect
his land ”
Horacek contends that
proposed wall is clear proof of
the illegal work Hadid has
done on the site.
“Do you think that maybe
he knows he has so destabilized the hill by grading and
building so illegally, that he
needs to build a retaining wall
which is completely out of
code to correct those mistakes
and stabilize a hill that’s coming down?” Horacek said.
In the formal appeal,
which is expected to be filed
later this week, Horacek will
demand that all grading and
work immediately cease until
the applicant completes a comprehensive study of the project’s slope stability issues, obtains all necessary discretionary entitlements, undergoes
an environmental review under
the California Environmental
Quality Act and prepares a
comprehensive plan for resolving all project-related issues.
Horacek isn’t the only
neighbor to take issue with the
home. Three other lawsuits
have been filed, although Hadid’s attorney Bruce Rudman
confirmed that one of those
suits was recently settled. The
other two still in litigation revolve around Strada Vecchia
neighbors adjacent to the property. Next week, The Courier
will examine the status and
reasons behind those lawsuits.

Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage
Commission Recommends Landmark
Status Against Owners’ Wishes
APPLICATION FOR
DEMOLITION–When
owners of 805 Linden
applied for a demolition permit, triggering
a landmark status
review, the house
looked as it does to
the left. Today, the
house appears as
shown in the photo
below, without vegetation and minus walkways.
By Victoria Talbot
In a highly controversial move, the
Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission (CHC) voted Wednesday to
recommend “The Caldwell Residence”
on North Linden Drive (also referred to
as the “Hughes Crash House,” following the 1946 crash by Hughes of an experimental aircraft) for inclusion onto
the Local Register of Historic Resources, despite the fact that the owners have opposed landmark status.
This is the first time in its 2 -years
that the CHC has met opposition from
a homeowner.
The residence is a 1926 Spanish
Colonial Revival example of Master Architect Wallace Neff’s early work.
At issue is the purpose of the ordinance.
Beverly Hills has drawn fire in the
past for allowing properties, such as
the Ira Gershwin residence, to fall to
the wrecking ball. The Los Angeles
Conservancy gave the City an “F” rating five years ago, upgraded to an “A”
this past year. But does the mission of
historic preservation have enough traction to pass muster in City Council? The
Caldwell Residence is the litmus test
for the Historic Preservation Ordinance.
“Beverly Hills Heritage is committed to supporting the decision of the
Cultural Heritage Commission by utilizing the necessary time and resources
it has to organize the overwhelming
public support of the decision to try
and save this historic property from
demolition,” said Heritage president
Kimberly Reiss.
The property first came before the
CHC on Oct. 9 of last year in response
to a 30-day Notice of Pending Demolition. Built by a Master Architect, the
application triggered an historical review to determine if the property meets
the criteria for historic preservation.
In April, the commission received
the historical assessment from consultant Jan Ostashay. The homeowners,
represented by attorney Stephen Webb,
had their own evaluation prepared by
PCR Services Corporation.
The CHC asked for a third review
of the property, prepared by Historic
Resources Group (HRG) and submitted
it with Ostashay’s rebuttal of the PCR
report. The third report findings recommended the home for Landmark status.
The PCR report argued that the residence did not retain historic integrity
because of remodeling and that the
home was not a significant example of
Neff’s work because it was speculatively built rather than custom built. Much
of the report prepared by PCR evaluated the interiors, which is not relevant to
the City’s ordinance.
The commission did not agree that
the speculative nature of the project
had any bearing on the historic value
or an assessment by PRC that said that
only 25-percent of the property was
original materials, a measure that is not
used in the City’s historic assessment.
Recently, the owners have removed the mature vegetation and
stripped the front yard of the walkway
without a permit. They did receive a
permit for work on the pool and backyard, said Bill Crouch, urban planner
for the City, so as not to further inconvenience them during the process.
The commission has determined,
based on the reports, that the residence
meets the criteria for landmark designation, including its identification with
a significant period and style of architecture in the City’s history, representing the work of a Master Architect and
possessing historic integrity and value.
Commission Chair Richard Waldo
and Commissioner Furie were very
clear about the commission’s task. The
purpose of the commission is to look at
the findings; the political questions are
to be tackled by the Beverly Hills City
Council when the residence is brought
up for landmark status. The commission voted unanimously to approve the
recommendation to nominate the
property for landmark consideration.
Now, it is up to the City Council to
decide if the home shall be landmarked.
Aaroe Estates President Debuts In The

to tear down a 9,000square foot home, flies
over a $125 million parcel with real estate tycoon
Richard Weintraub and
floats above the city with

parcel in Bel-Air and up
to the Hollywood Hills to
the home of Emmy
award-winning
actor
Megan Mullaly.
“It has been a great
experience having one of
our top agents on the
show,” said John Aaroe,
founder of the John Aaroe
Group. “Normally we are
extremely discreet about
our high-profile clientele
but part of the fun of the

bring everyone on the
journey.”
The experience, “allows me to share my passion for unique real estate
properties and give viewers a rare glimpse into the
fascinating world of luxurious living,” said Kirman.

we can to solve it.”
As a first step, the committee will submit a letter to the
City suggesting a partnership to
solve the issues.
“These are all issues that
have been around for awhile,
and we all recognize that our
members care deeply about
them as they can get in the way
of a shopper’s experience,”
Tronstein said. “We look forward to working with [the City]
on practical solutions.”
According to James R.
Latta, the City's human services
administrator, very few of the
panhandlers in Beverly Hills
are actually in need.
“In general, our homeless
mentally ill are the people that
you don’t see; they don’t have
the social skills,” he said. “Our
panhandlers are professionals.
They're not homeless and hungry. They know what times and
when our bike officers are out
there. They know the rules.”
As part of the City's
“Positive Change Not Spare
Change” campaign which aims
to reduce panhandling in
Beverly Hills, the Community
Services Department crafted a
letter this month to educate
businesses on working with the
City and police.
In addition, the City
recently expanded the budget
to include increased bike
patrols.
Anderson emphasized that
it was important for the community to understand that the
people asking for money or
handing out CDs and subsequently soliciting a donation
are preying on misapprehension.
“These people need to be
exposed for what it is,” he said.
“This is a problem throughout
the whole City.”
Lladro Assistant Manager
Susan Leech recounted how
multiple panhandlers would sit
outside the porcelain boutique
when the store was at 408 N.
Rodeo Dr. (Lladro is opening its
new store on the Via Rodeo in
September.) At one time, Leech
recalled, there was one woman
who would enter the store
daily “obviously homeless”
and talking to herself.
“It was horrible because
she would never leave,” she
said. “It wasn't good for business.”
Beech eventually took
recourse by filling out an
“Authorization To Arrest For
Trespass,” which allowed the
police to arrest the woman for
harassing customers the next
time she entered the store.
“I think we all have to really work together as merchants
to address these issues,” Beech
said. “It certainly impacts
everybody’s business and it’s
not the image we want to give.”
Another issue of concern
the committee will take up is
related to the ice cream trucks

plans to address the Charitable

C.K. for Louie.
Nominated for best comedy actress were Lena Dunham
for Girls, Edie Falco for Nurse

Technion Honors Philanthropist Sweet With Degree
Philanthropist Albert Sweet
was awarded an honorary doctorate at the Technion-Israel
Institute of Technology for his
vision, creativity and decadeslong commitment to Israel and
the Technion. His “achievements as a businessman and
civic leader are as inspiring as
they are numerous,” said
Technion President Peretz Lavie.
Among
his
many
projects, he
established
the Albert
Sweet Experimental
Testing Laboratory in
the David
and Janet
Polak Center for Cancer Research and Vascular Biology.
Sweet has a longstanding
relationship with Nobel Laureate Distinguished Prof. Aaron

research initiative “Targeting
Multiple Myeloma: From Basic
Research to Drug Development,” and most recently “The

Frank F. Ing, MD, FAAP,
FACC, FSCAI, associate chief of
cardiology and director of the
Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Children’s Hospital Los
Angeles (CHLA), has taken on
two new roles at the hospital:
Chief of the cardiology division
and co-director of the Heart
Institute. Ing assumed his new
responsibilities last week; and
replaces Michael Silka, MD,
who filled both positions for
more than 15-years.
“Working in tandem with
Heart Institute Co-Director
Vaughn Starnes, Dr. Ing is
poised to help our nationally
ranked cardiology program
reach new heights in the years
ahead,” says Brent Polk, M.D..,
physician in chief and chair of
CHLA’s pediatrics department
and chair of pediatrics and vice
dean for child health at USC’s
Keck School of Medicine.
Since arriving at CHLA in
2012, Ing has proven to be a
relentless innovator. He recently
received media attention for his
collaboration on the first fetal
aortic valvuloplasty procedure
performed in Southern California. He has also implemented
new clinical trials, outcome
studies and research related to
therapeutic catheterizations.
Dr. Frank Ing
“We strive for eminence,”
Ing says. “We endeavor to be
recognized as leaders in the
field of cardiology, and to
become the institution others
wait on to develop clinical and
research breakthroughs.”
Ing came to CHLA from
Texas Children’s Hospital, where
he served as director of the
Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and a professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of
Medicine. He is one of the
nation’s leading interventional
pediatric cardiologists; his primary area of research is the
development of transcatheter
techniques and cardiovascular
devices to treat congenital and
structural heart disease, from the
fetus to the elderly.

Should A Husband/Wife Ever Teach Their Partner?
Q. Dear Dr. Fran: When finding
a shared activity, should the
husband or wife be the one to
teach the inexperienced one?
What if either (or worse, both)
are super-competitive or sore
losers? Or the newbie winds up
being better than the veteran?
Sometimes is it better to just
play with your friends?
Stewart B.
A. Dear Stewart: Should one
partner in the couple step up as
teacher to the other? This can be
a bit tricky depending on the
personalities and the activity at
hand.
For instance, I have treated
many couples in which the husband has a controlling personality. One such young couple in
their early 30s took a trip to the
Museum of Contemporary Art.
He was well-versed and knowledgeable in modern art. She had
not been exposed to art as a
child and knew little.
In therapy, she complained
that he became furious with her
when she interrupted his lecture-like lessons by asking him a
question. This is an example of a
TECHNION
(Continued from page 16)
Albert Sweet Program for
Targeting Cancer by Modulating
Protein Dynamics.”
An active member of the
American Technion Society
(ATS) Southern California Chapter board of directors, Sweet is
couple that should hire a
teacher or guide vs. one in the
couple sitting in the power-differential position as instructor.
When each partner in the
couple has all of the following
traits only then can teaching be
handled.
• Solid, intact egos. By this
I mean that their noses don’t get
bent out of shape if someone
tells them what, how, or when to
do something.
Years ago I treated a wonderful couple in which each
partner clearly knew themselves. They had each spent
many years in individual psychoanalysis and were selfaware. They understood, as do I,
that no one is perfect and there
is no shame in saying, “I misstepped and I am truly sorry.”
The ability to integrate this life
lesson is a golden key to free-
dom from guilt and burden.
• Basic age-appropriate
maturity level. Many adults are
stuck in adolescent arrested development. They have a kneejerk reaction and tantrum if
things don’t go their way.
• Each partner must be
open to looking within. I am
currently treating a lovely, vivacious and athletic couple in
their early 70s. They are bonded
by sports activities they share.
Even though they have their issues and differences, they can
handle one teaching the other.
• Good communication
skills. The teaching partner
should use ”I” statements (instead of “You shoulds”). Say
things like, “I find when I hold
the golf club in this way and
stroke it improves my eye-hand
coordination.” The learning
partner will hear this as a generous attempt to “give” him or her
something vs. an opportunity to
control.

His “bed” lies on the asphalt beneath a large, filthy
vent. A red line is painted on
the asphalt; Merden believes
that red line will protect him
from being struck by a car. The
alley is his personal latrine. A
series of vents, which circulate
air inside for commercial businesses, produce an odor of
urine that has caused the tenants concern.
The clash between humanitarianism and homelessness is
not pretty. Tenants have sought
the City’s help to clean the public area. “As far as the homeless
man goes, there is really nothing Public Works can do about
that,” said an email from Andrea Simmons, a Public Works
customer service representative. The vents are private property. “I would advise you to call
BHPD for public urination. You
can also call in with a safety
concern with him lying in the
street,” she advised the tenants.
Human Services knows
Merden well. They have offered
him access to an extensive outreach program involving local
churches and organizations to
help, including Step Up on
Second, the Saban Free Clinic,
Home for Good and the City’s
outreach team, Changing Lives
and Sharing Places (CLASP),
who work to assess their needs
and connect them with services.

He won’t take the help,
says James R. Latta, human

Human Services Division.
“From a Human Services perspective we want to be sure our
message is clearly present,
which is to make regular contact with Beverly Hills’ homeless population, earn their trust
and provide life-changing help.
We help look after homeless
people and try to steer them
into services,” said Latta.
“Michael isn’t ready to accept our ongoing attempts to
help. Well-meaning community members attempt to assist individuals like Michael by giving him food and money. These
contributions actually enable
him to remain on the street and
refuse the professional help he
desperately need,” says Latta.
“We never provide money

provide Permanent Supportive
Housing vouchers for individuals like Michael who are homeless and vulnerable.”
The City has a campaign,
“Positive Change, Not Spare

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 11). You’ll leave a strong mark on
the book of life this year. You’ll enjoy and welcome contact

November, you’ll keep track of all that’s going on and retain
the learning, turning it into a power play at the first of 2015.
It’s money in the bank. Virgo and Aries people adore you.

you may never be able to pay back, but that’s okay–you
weren’t meant to. The world will be better when you pay it
forward instead.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The proverb goes: Honey is sweet, but
the bees sting. Today you’ll take a calculated risk to taste the
good side of life. The potential danger isn’t too great; go for it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Those who don’t believe in magic
often believe in things that are just as improbable, but much
more boring. You’ll be drawn to the fanciful types, and they
will keep you entertained.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll find yourself trying to reason
with unreasonable forces. Some of these come in the form of
children. Maintain your structure and your patience. This is a
test.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Friends tell you your strengths,
critics tell you your faults, and loved ones tell you you’re
accepted for both. It’s good to feel that there is someone who
loves you unconditionally.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can’t stick to the recipe
when you don’t have all of the ingredients. Life will force you
to change it up, but what you create will be better for the
challenge.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It appears that what you
assumed has been proved correct. Another theory is that
what's happening is a direct result of your assumption. In
other words, you believed it, so it’s coming true.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If part of you is stretching into
the future and the other part is lagging in the past, there won’t
be enough of you left to take advantage of the opportunity
going on right now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Lose the definitions and judgments
for now. If you split yourself into “bad” and “good,” the two
sides of you will engage in an internal battle, draining the little that will be left for productivity.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). The first step in creating work that
people love is loving the work yourself and having fun while
you’re doing it. The more interesting your work is to you the
more interesting it will be to others.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). Too many people are prone to
self-doubt and the tendency to underestimate what they can
do. You’ll witness this dynamic and take every opportunity to
build people up.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just because you can see things
from another person’s point of view doesn’t mean you’re soft.
In fact, your perspective and compassion are what allow you
to stand behind your personal rules.
When we met I knew it was fate;
Even though you were jailbait;
It didn’t matter you were GREAT!!
You must admit the cigarettes I sold you, you got a good rate.
(Herb sold cigarettes at the time he met Marilyn)
Your family didn’t like me
They were full of hate
I was always so anxious to see you I never came late
I would never make you wait
You’re my LOVING MATE FOR 58
We have a date so lets celebrate
LOVE YOU ALWAYS

NOTICE
TO
POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If
you are considering bidding on this property lien,
you should understand
that there are risks
involved in bidding at a
trustee auction. You will
be bidding on a lien, not
on the property itself.
Placing the highest bid at
a trustee auction does not
automatically entitle you
to free and clear ownership of the property. You
should also be aware that
the lien being auctioned
off may be a junior lien. If
you are the highest bidder
at the auction, you are or
may be responsible for
paying off all liens senior
to the lien being auctioned off, before you can
receive clear title to the
property. You are encouraged to investigate the
existence, priority, and
size of outstanding liens
that may exist on this
property by contacting
the county recorder's
office or a title insurance
company, either of which
may charge you a fee for
this information. If you
consult either of these
resources, you should be
aware that the same
lender may hold more
than one mortgage or
deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale
date shown on this notice
of sale may be postponed
one or more times by the
mortgagee, beneficiary,
trustee, or a court, pur-
suant to Section 2924g of
the California Civil Code.
The law requires that
information about trustee
sale postponements be
made available to you
and to the public, as a
courtesy to those not
present at the sale. If you
wish to learn whether
your sale date has been
postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled
time and date for the sale
of this property, you may
visit the website below
using the file number
assigned to this case.
Information about postponements that are very
short in duration or that
occur close in time to the
scheduled sale may not
immediately be reflected
on the Internet Web site.
The best way to verify
postponement information is to attend the
scheduled sale. For information on sale dates

TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this
property
lien,
you
should understand that
there are risks involved
in bidding at a trustee
auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on
the property itself.
Placing the highest bid
at a trustee auction
does not automatically
entitle you to free and
clear ownership of the
property. You should
also be aware that the
lien being auctioned off
may be a junior lien. If
you are the highest bidder at the auction, you
are or may be responsible for paying off all
liens senior to the lien
being auctioned off,
before you can receive
clear title to the property. You are encouraged
to investigate the existence, priority and size
of outstanding liens that
may exist on this property by contacting the
county recorder’s office
or a title insurance company, either of which
may charge you a fee
for this information. If
you consult either of
these resources, you
should be aware that
the same lender may
hold more than one
mortgage or deed of
trust on the property.
NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale
date shown on this
notice of sale may be
postponed one or more
times by the mortgagee,
beneficiary, trustee, or a
court,
pursuant
to

about
trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the
public, as a courtesy to
those not present at the

THE LEGACY OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
In my youth, one of my heroes was Benjamin Franklin. The parkway
leading from City Hall in Philadelphia atop which stood the statue of
William Penn led to the Benjamin Franklin Museum. In my early adolescence, I would walk the 5-miles from my home in West Philadelphia to
reach the institution. In a sense I walked the early history of the United

States in those visits to the museum.
Franklin was one of the founding fathers of the United States and
helped draft the Declaration of Independence which we commemorated
last week. He was also the first U.S. ambassador to France and with Bastille
Day coming next week, I can’t help remembering Franklin’s enormous talents.
One of the stories about him which appealed to my childhood was that

Franklin!
Being a student of history and a former teacher as well I would be remiss in not addressing the current onslaught that has been aimed at the Board of Education or as some like to refer to us, the Board of Litigation or even, at times, the Board of Aggravation.
The prevalence of the “this versus that” culture runs rampant in our small community.
Whether it is the local news outlets, a community association or a body of elected officials,
almost everyone has felt the need to keep this City divided. The truth is that both elected bodies agree on most issues as I know their voting records will prove. It all falls down to the “sexy”
issues…the subway, salary increases, earthquake faults, Common Core. Ironically, these are
the issues that do not affect us on an everyday basis. These are long term issues that are debated and addressed over months or even years. So that brings us to the question…What is
best for our students? The answer is to promote discourse and engage in topical conversations
that find results through, heaven forbid, compromise.
You see, in my 2-1/2 years of public service I have been reminded of one inevitable
truth…nobody knows. Therefore it is up to us, the elected members of the board to lead. We
must use the knowledge at our disposal to make the best decisions possible and in our case
those decisions should always directly affect the success of our students.
Now sometimes, much like celebrities, we are prone to comments in the heat of a discussion or within an email. These comments are then removed from context, spun into an intricate politically woven rug, and then pulled out from under us. No member of this board has
purposely or maliciously intended to demean any group or geographical area in this City with
his or her comments. Did they say something they probably regret, sure, WE ALL DO. It is just
those of us in the public eye get hammered much harder. Let’s not be hypocrites. What is that
saying about glass houses and stones? Let’s drop it and move on.
And for the recent attacks on this board’s actions all I will contribute to that discussion is
that we are an elected body of volunteers that put over 40-hours a week into our positions and
for better or worse (and I have certainly seen both) we are trying to do the best we can for our
students. I have seen friendships torn apart and tremendous support bases dissolve over issues
completed unrelated to education. Meanwhile I watch the tragedy that unfolds around us
globally and I try to keep our pettiness in perspective. My job is to find answers to the hard
questions that face this district. How can we improve our student’s achievements? How can
we get shovels in the ground faster? How can we be fiscally responsible in dire economic
times and how can we be the district that we should be and that our community deserves for

us to be? Enough is enough. Back to work everyone.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
In Beverly Hills, quality education is being eroded by a revolutionary reform
called Common Core. Like other revolutions promising one thing and delivering
another, Common Core uses slogans to promote itself. You can almost imagine red
banners strung over school doors: “Prepare for the International Workplace of the
New Global Economy!” “Be College Ready!” “Develop Critical Thinking and
Problem Solving Skills!” “Adopt Rigorous Standards!”
Who could oppose such brilliant aims? Some of Common Core’s most vocal
critics are those who know it best. Jason Zimba, one of its lead developers has
admitted that Common Core math only prepares students for nonselective community colleges, not four-year universities. James Milgram, professor emeritus of mathematics at Stanford, and the only mathematician on the Common Core Validation
Committee has called Common Core a “complete mess” and concluded it leaves
American students at least two-years behind their international counterparts by
eighth grade.
Let’s take a closer look at Common Core math. What does it look like inside the
classroom? In May, BHUSD approved new textbooks for middle school grades
called ”Big Ideas Math.” Beverly Hills will switch to these books for one reason:
because they “align” with Common Core. In “Big Ideas Math,” every topic starts
with an activity that wastes time and often has nothing to do with learning math.
Here’s an example and as you read this activity, ask yourself if you think top math
education countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan use methods like this.
From “Big Ideas Math,” California Pupil Edition Course 1 (sixth grade), Section
2.3, page 70: “Think of a story that uses division by a mixed number. Write your
story. Then draw pictures for your story. Solve the division problem and use the
answer in your story. Include a diagram of the division problem.” The book offers a
sample story, complete with pencil drawings:
“There are many possible stories. Here’s one about 6 ÷ 1. Joe goes on a camping trip with his aunt, his uncle, and three cousins. They leave at 5 p.m. and drive
two-hours to the campground. [Pencil drawing of tents and a campfire] Joe helps
his uncle put up three tents. His aunt cooks hamburgers on a grill that is over a fire.
In the morning, Joe tells his aunt that he is making pancakes. [Pencil drawing of a
box of pancake mix with a list of ingredients] He decides to triple the recipe so
there will be plenty of pancakes for everyone. A single recipe uses two-cups of
water so he needs a total of six cups. Joe’s aunt has a one-cup measuring cup and
a 1/2-cup measuring cup. [Pencil drawing of two measuring cups] The water faucet
is about 50-yards from the campsite. Joe tells his cousins he can get six-cups of
water in only four trips. When his cousins ask him how he knows that, he uses a
stick to draw a diagram in the dirt. [Pencil drawing of a ruler divided simultaneously into six sections and four sections] Joe says, “This diagram shows that there
are four 1’s in 6. In other words, 6 ÷ 1 = 4.”
Unfortunately, our superintendent, chief academic officer, and a majority on
the BHUSD Board of Education are proceeding with Common Core. But our students don’t need to suffer this pointless nonsense. California is a local control state
where local school districts get to decide whether or not to implement Common
Core. If you’re in favor of bringing quality education back to Beverly Hills, let us

Before the General Assembly meeting of the Presbyterian Church USA held to
decide if they are going to divest from Israel, there was a small meeting at my
house with the pastor from the local church. I am sure that he never intended to
vote for divestment, but unfortunately, he was not one of the two California representatives to the General Assembly.
Their decision to support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) is a problem for us all. Their action was for me an invitation to further encourage the kidnapping of Israeli teenagers, suicide bombers daily throwing rockets into Israel,
etc. Why can they not see that the Palestinian terrorist attacks happen without
provocation? These same Israelis have given up their homes and their cultivated
land to the Gazians and take a look at what they have done with it all.
I ask that the City provides a location for the viewing of a documentary entitled Israel Indivisible. Then we will all learn the real history of the problem.
