anymore! The Spring Collection includes little jackets and
big trench coats, a touch of
blue camouflage and gossamer jackets, made to layer

New UCLA Center To Work With U.S. Military On
Challenges Of Healing Wounded Warriors
UCLA has launched the first
university-based military medicine center on the West Coast,
thanks to a generous donation
from two sons in honor of their
father, the inventor, entrepreneur and philanthropist Ronald
A. Katz.
Thanks to Ronald A. Katz’
vision and generosity in spearheading the founding of UCLA’s
Operation Mend—a partnership
among Ronald Reagan UCLA
Medical Center, Brooke Army
Medical Center in Texas and the
Veterans Affairs Greater Los
Angeles Healthcare System—
nearly 100 severely wounded in
Iraq and Afghanistan warriors
and their families have been
helped.
Now, The Ronald A. Katz
Center for Collaborative Military
Medicine, established by an initial $2 million gift from Todd
and Randy Katz and their families, will work with the U.S. military to address the challenges of
healing and caring for the
nation’s most critically wounded
warriors.
The center will function as a
clearinghouse for all military
medical needs, a one-stop shop
providing access to medical
care, support programs and
r e s e a r ch ,
including

stress evaluation, treatment and research; regenerative
medicine research; wearable
medical device research and
family resiliency support.
The Katz Center will facilitate the cross-disciplinary sharing of technologies and medical
advances, both within UCLA
and throughout the national network of military medicine facilities and other academic medical
institutions. It will focus on
enhancing treatment protocols
for craniofacial reconstruction,
burn repair, limb reconstruction,
hand and face transplantation,

Peter
Chiarelli, the retired four-star
general who served as the 32nd

medicine
through a dedicated and
focused partnership among the
various branches of the U.S. military, UCLA Health System and
the Geffen School,” Chiarelli
said. “This new center will
leverage and maximize the university’s brain trust of knowledge, experience, innovation
and entrepreneurial spirit to
address and tackle the challenges of military medicine. The
ultimate goal of these collaborative relationships is to move
medical advances from bench to
bedside as quickly as possible
for the clinical care of wounded
warriors through programs such
as Operation Mend.” Read more

On Celebrity Apologies, Not Having Friends At Work
Dear Dr. Fran: It seems so many
public figures and celebrities are
doing wrong things and then
apologizing. What makes some
apologies acceptable while other
public apologies have not been
well received?
Brad P.
A. Dear Brad: From as young as 4years-old, I teach children the difference between saying you’re
sorry so you won’t get in trouble,
and saying it like you mean it.
Accountability is one of the
most important ethical values a
parent can instill in a child. Most
young children get into the habit
of quickly saying “sorry” by rote to
get their parents off their backs.
Most adults will only accept an
apology if they feel it was delivered with genuine sincerity.
• Mel Gibson, when arrested
for a DUI, spouted sexist and antiSemitic remarks. His explanation
for his disgusting behavior didn’t
necessarily help his cause.
• David Letterman on The
Late Show showed his serious side
when apologizing to his wife and
staff for his affairs. He wasn’t his
usual jokester; and we liked the
sincerity we saw.
• It’s been 15 years since
Hugh Grant got arrested after
hooking up with a Hollywood
prostitute. When it came to apologizing, Hugh did it right. He went
on The Tonight Show and just
‘fessed up.
• Kobe Bryant was accused of
sexually assaulting a female hotel
employee in Colorado in 2003.
Bryant argued the sex was consensual and the charge was ultimately dropped. Kobe made a public

apology, and the public accepted
it. Couldn’t hurt that he bought his
wife, Vanessa, a $4 million ring.
• Tiger Woods, on the other
hand, apologized profusely for his
infidelity. When the extent of his
cheating with numerous women
outside of his marriage was
revealed, his fans did not forgive
so quickly. Nor, did his wife and
mother of his two young children.
He has never regained the royal
position he once held in the eyes
of the public.
Q. Dear Dr. Fran: What are the
drawbacks of not having friends
at work?
Sam N.
A. Dear Sam: Are you friendless?
Some people prefer it this way
while others pine for a companion
behind the line of fire.
One of the main drawbacks
of not having friends at work is a
feeling of isolation and loneliness.
When it comes to people, two is a
lot more than one plus one.
Not having friends at work
can affect performance. The person may feel a lack of confidence
and insecurity that can reduce
productivity.
On the other hand, some may
argue that not having friends at
work allows you to focus all your
energy and attention on the work
itself.
I treated a patient who didn’t
have friends at work because he
had poor social skills. He misread
social cues and often his attempts
to be humorous were misunderstood as hostility. Co-workers didn’t want to be his friend. He was in
a high-level supervisory position
that required offering supervision
guidance to his staff. His inability
to make and sustain friendships at
work ultimately worked against
him. He was not offered advancement and when the economy
forced his company to downsize
he was one of the first to go.
Benefits to having friends at
work include: having a partner
who understands the characters
and big picture with whom to
debrief stressful days; having a
friend/colleague to support you at
times of work conflict; and having
a lunch partner.
I think the best criteria for
choosing a “work friend” is honesty, sincerity, integrity, character
and loyalty. It is not necessarily
bad for managers to be friends
with people they manage or vice
versa. As long as the boundaries
are clearly stated and adhered to,
things can go well.
Boundaries may include,
“we will not discuss work outside
of the office” or “we commit to
open, straight-talk honesty when it
comes to the job.” People need to
be free to discuss anything openly.
The requirement is two partners
who want to make it work.

Nic's Martini Bar.
The Russian Guild of Realtors is dedicated to cultivating a strong real estate market
in Russia and promoting market development and stabilization.
Through the efforts of 20
years of the Russian Guild,
Russians now prefer to make
their deals through realtors.
The Russian visitors exchanged gifts and discussed
organization, certification,
membership details and legal
aspects of American real estate
transactions, focusing on the
Beverly Hills area as a model
of successful marketing.
“Currently,” said Anna Lupashko, president of the Russian Guild of Realtors, “one of
the main goals of RGR is to increase the scale of Russia's
real estate market, to make it
more transparent, reliable and
available and to improve consumer's confidence in realtor's
work.”
Realtors Continue To Ignore Codes For Signs Especially On Sunday Open Houses
SIGNS CONTINUE TO APPEAR–Benedict Canyon and Summit Drive is a magnet for real estate signs on

Father Mark Haydu Brings
BHWC A New Book From Rome
By Victoria Talbot
The Beverly Hills Women's
Club welcomed Father Mark
Haydu LC, to sign copies of his
new book Meditations On Vatican Art Wednesday evening.
Father Haydu is the international director of the Patrons of
the Arts in the Vatican Museum.
His first book, published by
Liguori Publications, blends the
art with the meditation practices
of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
“There are 30 works of art
arranged according to the work
of St. Ignatius,” he said. Each image is paired with one of the
meditation exercises. “Art captures truths and imaginations, reflections on the harmony of
prayer.”
Marcia Hobbs, founding
boardmember of the Patrons of
the Arts, former Gov. Gray Davis
and Councilmember Nancy
Krasne attended.
Haydu, a Legionary of
Christ, shared anecdotes of his
life at the Vatican. He described
Pope Francis as a humble man
who has not changed the simple
life he led in Argentina. The softspoken priest reflected on the art
of the Vatican with enthusiasm.
Haydu is the custodian of the
world's most priceless art, raising
funds to finance the vast Vatican
restoration operations. The Patrons of the Arts is dedicated to
preserving the vast Vatican collections.
Published Nov. 1, Meditations On Vatican Art is now
available for Christmas.

CRESCENT
(Continued from page 1)
Mercedes Benz leases
space from the City to store
cars on the top floor, They were
relocated for maintenance, limiting the available parking
spaces for customers.
Crescent Drive merchants
were shocked Monday morning. “I had three customers this
morning,” said Rita Kevorkian
of Beverly Custom Cleaners. “I
wanted to cry.”
Space is leased to the dealership at a cost of $78 per car.
Parking officials miscalculated the inventory, which
surged as the end of the year
approaches.
With a base salary at
$114,008.04, the property
manager is responsible for all
40 of the commercial properties the City leases. Most of
those are attached to public
parking structures in the Business Triangle. Lavender is responsible for marketing, negotiating and leasing available
space, administering lease
agreements, customer service,
property inspections and managing construction.
Tenants began calling
Vice Mayor Lili Bosse Tuesday
morning to complain that the
public parking structure had
“Lot Full” sign in front and that
business had slowed to a standstill. Regular customers were
being turned away.
After receiving calls from
Bosse, Chad Lynn, the director
of parking operations, began to
have cars moved to other parking lots to free up parking
spaces for the tenants. Valets
were positioned to facilitate
parking.
“We should have talked
with the tenants, we didn’t, and
this was a mistake on our part
that will be corrected as we
move forward,” said Lynn.
The oversight had a major
impact on the small businesses.
“When I lose business for a
day,” said Beverly Hills Market owner Shahram Saeedian,
“it affects me for a month.
The North Crescent street
closures for the opening of the
Wallis and last year’s skating
ring had already severely affected business in the small
shopping area. No one at the
City had informed the tenants
of the maintenance decisions,
leaving them completely in the
dark about why the lot was full.

cemetery is cold and damp and
there is no sign of a grassy knoll.
She picks up a book left behind by the gravediggers and hides
it under her coat.
Her mother, distraught and defeated, sends her to an orphanage
where she is adopted by a German
couple, Hans and Rosa, (played
brilliantly by Geoffrey Rush and
Emily Watson). She is shown to her
room by a non-nonsense Rosa and
visited by the understanding and
compassionate Hans. He notices
the book and Leisel asks him to
read it to her. It is a gravedigger’s
handbook. She loves hearing the
words and asks him to read it to her
again.
Although Leisel can’t read, she
knows the words in books will

GOVERNOR’S RACE
(Continued from page 1)
Assemblyman Tim Donnelly from San
Bernardino County, arrives for a fundraiser
fresh off his statewide bus tour.
This isn’t your run-of-the-mill candidate.
Donnelly has been traveling the state in a
campaign bus talking with real, everyday people who are suffering in California – both the
job creators and the jobless alike. And Donnelly is getting traction. Recent public polls
show Californians remain concerned about
jobs and the economy. These are problems
which Democrats – who control every
statewide office and both chambers of the legislature – have done very little to solve.
While any Republican is considered the
underdog in this race, events on both the state
and national stage may give Donnelly an
opening. He believes he will have no shortage of topics next year: the failure of Obamacare, disclosure about NSA spying on your
phone and email records, and the IRS targeting average Americans.
Donnelly has no illusions. Snatching the
governor’s seat from a Democrat will be
tough. He drew lots of flak as a founder of
the largest Minuteman chapter in California,
protesting illegal immigration and the federal
government's refusal to block it. More recently, his libertarian views came to the fore as

he introduced laws to protect parents and minor children from government overreach.
Donnelly’s not afraid of hard work. As
a teenager and then college student, he
worked to pay part of his private high school
tuition and then paid his own way through
U.C. Irvine. After graduating in 1985 with a
degree in English, he worked for his father's
small family business supplying parts to plastics manufacturers.
After five years, he started his own small
business. Now, with 20- years of experience
on the front lines of manufacturing, he will be
one of the few candidates in California who
has actually created real jobs and met a real
payroll.
California’s new top-two primary will
also play a factor in this race, as it is the first
governor’s race subject to the new primary
system. He aims to distinguish himself from
presumed candidate Gov. Jerry Brown and
others on the ticket. Donnelly is and will run
as a staunch conservative to try to claim his
place among the top two finishers.
Donnelly will highlight the state's high
unemployment with nearly 2 million people
out of a job and 1 in 4 children in California is
now living in poverty. During Brown's (and
Arnold Schwarzenegger's) tenure, California
dropped from the sixth largest economy in the

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 15).
It’s a big year for your personal
life. Start by getting organized,
streamlining your responsibilities,
property and life systems. You
move into a new role in
December. By January, you’re off
to the races with an ambitious
project. April brings travel and a
promise. Loved ones celebrate
with you in February. Gemini and
Virgo people adore you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It
bothers you when people assume
they could have done what you
did had they felt like moving on
the idea. Bottom line: They didn’t
act, you did. Hypothetical wins
don’t count.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Some people find it hard to be
positive and take their outrageous
good fortune for granted. Not you.
Your grateful thoughts will be
blessings on your life.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You are physically strong now,
and this will help you on every
level. You’ll be a top producer at
work, your personal life will percolate with interesting offers, and
you’ll have an attitude that keeps
you in spiritual harmony.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As
much as you’d like to remain neutral, it’s time to choose a side.
People who stand in the middle of
the two-lane road are safe until
someone swerves.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Regarding today’s risk: You really
can’t lose, because even losing
will put you ahead. You may try
and win, or you may try and fail,
but either way you’re better off
than the ones who didn’t try at all.

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Whether
or not you think you’re good with
money, it’s something you have to
deal with at every juncture.
Establishing a few key fiscal habits
now could make you far better off
this time next year.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). It’s difficult to move frozen minds of
people who think they already
know. Let them talk awhile, and
really listen. The ice will start melting. Things will get flexible up
there again.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s not
weak to circumvent an argument,
confrontation or conflict—on the
contrary. It’s what people who
plan to live a long, long time do.
What can you do to avoid stress,
worry and tension?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your
relationship with younger people
may seem complex, but you could
simplify it by reducing your number of rules to two: 1. Keep them
from doing wrong. 2. Encourage
them to do right.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want
to move up, but are so good at
doing what you’re doing the ones
in power fear being unable to
replace you. Record your systems
and practices. How would you
train someone to do what you do?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Nostalgia is for people with good
memories. You’ll likely be the one
to recount stories, but don’t be
surprised if no one remembers
things as you do. Your storytelling
ability is one of the many wonderful things you contribute.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You
may have a gripe with your ancestors, as some of your genetic predisposition doesn’t meet with your
approval. Yet, you have to admit
that the talents they did give you
are pretty glorious.

But Friends of Beverly Garden Park are seeking funding
again.
The Electric Fountain between Carmelita and Walden is in
need of an angel donor to help.
“We need $750,000,” said Gaby
Reims Alexander, “to begin
restoration.” This was built in
1931 as a gift to the City from
Harold Lloyd's mother. The centerpiece of the Western entrance
to Beverly Hills, it made a huge
splash in its inaugural years, stopping traffic with its changing
lights. Featuring an 8-minute light
show, the beautiful statue has
welcomed visitors to the City for
many years.
But the tile needs restoration,
the lights are dimming and the
spray must be rehabilitated. Atop
the Merrill Gage sculpture of the
Tongva Indian atop the fountain
no longer spout water from his
hands. The stone base, created by
architect Ralph Flewelling, is
cracked and stained.
Without an angel donor to
start construction, the project is
stalled.

understand the importance of
preserving cultural landmarks as
a piece of history. To donate visit

giant Paul Mitchell’s schools
(“Humanitarian of the Year”
award); Earl Hightower, founder
of Hightower Associates, (“Excellence in Service“ award);
and philanthropist Sydney Holland, CEO of Rich Hippie Production (“Woman of the Year”
award).
Luncheon co-chair Michael
Hollingsworth, welcomed the
600 guests and introduced the
host, Grammy-winning Charlie
Colin.
The emotional highlight
came when Friendly House
Board of Directors President Bill
Cunningham called an obviously surprised Peggy Albrecht
(who co-chaired the luncheon
with Hollingsworth) to the stage
and chronicled her selfless work
over the years.
Viola Davis and Sumner
Redstone were honorary cochairs of the event which raised
more than $500,000.

THE WINNER- BHPOA President Det. Sgt. Mike Publicker and Phyllis
Parvin, who won the car at auction, stood in front of her new vehicle
last week at the BHPOA Black and White Gala. “The Beverly Hills Police Officers Association exhibited incredible support for the Beverly
Hills police with its donation of a gorgeous 2014 Infiniti Q50 to our
Black & White Gala Live Auction. This is the highest valued auction donation in our memory. The Infiniti Q50 generated an enormous ‘buzz’ at
the gala, and pre-gala in the community at large. We received numerous emails and calls regarding this generous donation. The BHPOA is
excited to continue this important partnership with Infiniti of Beverly
Hills,” said Stacie Kopeikin of the BHPOA.

Dot’s development director.
Founded in 2000 upon the
idea that every child deserves to go
to a great school, Green Dot operates a mix of independent charter
schools and turnarounds of existing
neighborhood schools that have
been chronically underperforming.
Green Dot senior Doris Cortez
highlighted the importance of security at her school.
“There are lots of gangs in our
area,” she explained. “I feel safe at
our school. If there’s a problem, we
get Mr. P (a security guard) and he
saves the day.”
American Jewish University
President Rabbi Bob Wexler, who
moderated one panel during the
luncheon, highlighted the vast improvement at Locke High School in
Watts, which had a 25 percent
graduation rate before Green Dot
took over in 2008. Today the graduation rate is 80 percent.
According to Weston, today,
10,300 Green Dot students are
more than twice as likely to go to
college as students across California, and three times more likely to
do so than students attending local
schools in Los Angeles Unified
School District (LAUSD). In 2013,
Green Dot schools graduated over
1,600 college-ready students.
“It’s the first time in our lives we
have been told we can do it,” said
Green Dot student Dulce Perez,
noting that having a lot of security
removed her fear about being

want to be a teacher too and help
my community.”

"We are honored to recognize

their talents with the world and as
a result made it a much brighter
place," said Dr. Hooshang Pak,
trustee and chair of Farhang Award
Committee.
"The efforts of Houshang Seyhoun and Najmieh Batmanglij,
each a master in his and her own
craft, have not only contributed to

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

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 a 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 lender may
hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on
the property. NOTICE TO
PROPERTY
OWNER
The sale date shown on
this notice of sale may be
postponed one or more
times by the mortgagee,
beneficiary, trustee, or a
court, pursuant to Section
2924g of the California
Civil Code. The law
requires that information
about trustee sale postponements be made
available to you and to the
public, as a courtesy to
those not present at the
sale. If you wish to learn
whether your sale date
has been postponed,
and, if applicable, the
rescheduled time and
date for the sale of this
property, you may call 1800-281-8219 or visit this
Internet
Web
site
www.recontrustco.com,
using the file number
assigned to this case TS
No.
11-0075943.
Information about postponements that are very
short in duration or that
occur close in time to the
scheduled sale may not
immediately be reflected
in the telephone information or on the Internet
Web site. The best way to
verify
postponement
information is to attend
the
scheduled
sale.

OBAMACARE AND THE PHONE COMPANIES
Ever try to fix a phone problem with AT&T or Verizon? Sure you have. Wasn’t that fun?
Productive? Successful?
Just try to move your office and switch your phones and cable TV connections. At The
Courier, it took direct intervention by senior execs of AT&T to restore simple phone service.
What if they make a mistake and disconnect your lines? How do you like being told that the
phone number you’ve had for more than 30 years “is not in the system. We show you have no
account” as you look at an outrageous bill with an account number and a phone number on it.
Reality check –either pay or you have no phone service. Sure, eventually you will probably
get it straightened out, but what happens if that is now your health care?
How much time do you have during a heart attack or stroke?
How much will the cancer grow while they look for your account number?
Do we believe that the federal government will function better than AT&T or Verizon? AT&T
has been at it for well over 120 years. First they were a monopoly, then they weren’t. Now they're
reestablished as a virtual monopoly.
At one time, we had a real PacBell with real people here in California, who seemed to be
able to fix things and get things right pretty fast.
What happens when the federal Obamacare system loses your account? What if your government-supplied or government-approved “plan” just doesn't cover whatever ails you? Or doesn’t OK the doctor who has treated you or the hospital you want to enter? What if your physician
is not registered in the system? Or they get his or her I.D. number wrong? Or the code for the
procedure wrong?
What if your cardiologist is listed as an orthopedic surgeon and thus “authorization” to perform an angioplasty will be denied?
Worse yet, what if you are among the 5 million Americans who were just told “No insurance.” That number is growing by millions, and millions more have been socked with massive
rate hikes. That is a cure for a job losses and a bad economy? Higher healthcare premiums?
This is all real. Everyone knows it. The excuse that “Well, you just don’t care about the 30
million people who did not have health insurance.”
Honestly? Why is it fair for people with private, paid-for health insurance to lose theirs for
any reason? It is not. But even if we sacrifice millions of paying customers allegedly to give the
healthcare to the uninsured, what “assurance” is there that these “previously uninsured” will
actually get anything? This is a big mess. It’s going to get worse. It should never have been adopted.
Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee tried to block it, but failed. At least they tried. So, take your
pick—the phone companies or the federal government. At least with competition, you can
always choose another cell phone carrier.
What do you do when the only carrier is the federal government? And they lose your
account.

Rabbi Jacob Pressman
MY INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CORP.
As I was traveling across town recently because three of my
doctors could only see me on that particular day, I suddenly realized that one was born in Italy, one in Mexico, and one in the
Ukraine. As I was processing that thought I called to mind that
among my other doctors (being a collector), I have been treated by
physicians (male and female) from Guadalajara, Czechoslovakia,
and India, and am still alive. My grocer is from Iran, my shoe repair
person from Italy, my barber from Sicily; many of the teachers in
Pressman Academy are from Israel. My mother, father and fatherin-law were born in Russia and my mother-in-law in Rumania. Our
American population is made up of immigrants and the descendants of immigrants from all the continents and our colors are the
colors of the rainbow. Even the Native American Indians came to
this continent from elsewhere. We are a heterogeneous nation, and
I believe therein lies our greatness.
It should behoove us, therefore, to be the most tolerant of peoples, but I fear we are not yet. Children at home hear deprecating,
even hostile remarks by their parents and carry them into the classrooms and playgrounds where the cycle of prejudice, bullying,
even violence continues on for another generation. Unless parents
and grandparents show examples of respect and appreciation for
all stripes of color, faith and ethnicity their dislike of the unlike will
continue to perpetuate itself.
Traveling to my medical appointments I was moved to thank
the Almighty and the great Lady with the Lamp who symbolically
welcomed us all here so that my physicians–all, of whatever birth–
could keep me alive for so many years to breathe the blessed air of
freedom, and write these columns uncensored.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Congratulations to the Beverly Hills Unified School District and
the City for their victory in court over the matter concerning
Metro's plans for a tunnel under Beverly Hills High School.
Metro can no longer hide behind false facts and reports that
were and are based upon incomplete testing which was below
industry standards.
We in Beverly Hills never hid from the truth and, in fact, sought
it because we value what is right and take seriously the safety of our
children and citizens as well as our high quality of education and
life.
It is clear that Metro does not have those same concerns.
The money spent on this fight is proving to be well worth it and
those who disagree had better take a closer look at Metro for what
it is. Metro has a history of pulling the wool over the eyes of Los
Angeles, but here, it never had a chance. We were onto Metro from
the beginning and thanks in a large part to The Courier, everything
was laid bare for all to see.
The court of law is about justice and proof. Knowing that, victory is at hand.
