We all know the stereotypes. Hardcore Lakers fans light things on fire when the team wins a championship. Hardcore Clippers fans are perpetually depressed because they’ve never had a chance to destroy anything except their expectations. Here’s something they have in common: both groups get their own version of the “Sh*t People Say” meme, and neither come out smelling like roses. The Lakers are riding high on 16 league championships, so the fans on ” Stuff Laker Fans Say ,” are bombastic and entitled. They defend Kobe against rape accusations, express nostalgia for the Zen Master and shove a Lamar Odom jersey to the back of their closet. The money quotes: “Derek Fisher’s so old. RETIRE!” and “We should trade Luke Walton for…” anyone. WATCH : Just like the franchise and its fans, the ” Sh*t Clippers Fans Say ” video is a little pathetic because it’s so hopeful. The fan swings from unbridled optimism (“This is our year! We’ve got CP3!”) to fatalism (“This franchise is so cursed”). And, as true Clipper fandom requires, the video is shot through with a strong dose of hate for Kobe and all other “fakers.” WATCH : Of course, the tables could turn for both sets of fans this year. With a couple of power trades and a strong start to the season , the oft-maligned Los Angeles Clippers have transformed into “Lob City” — while the Lakers are looking old, tired and frustrated on the road . For the sake of the All-Star game, expect these two sets of cultish fans to come together for one night. Four of the Western Conference’s starters come from LA : Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum from the Lakers, and Chris Paul and Blake Griffin from the Clippers. But don’t expect the kumbayas to last for long; both teams are gunning for the playoffs, and only one can represent the West in the NBA finals.

The Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education is remaining steadfast in its opposition to a proposed state bill sponsored by Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles) even though the legislation is not as limiting as board members originally believed. Introduced by Feuer in January, AB1444 would streamline the approval process for public transit projects , such as the Westside Subway Extension , by granting them special legal protection from state environmental review challenges. “My bill would not affect the ability of the Beverly Hills Unified School District to challenge one of the routes that the L.A. County Metro Board will consider for the Westside Subway Extension,” Feuer said in a Feb. 2 commentary on Patch . “In fact, it would only apply to projects for which, unlike the subway, a draft environmental impact report has yet to circulate.” Feuer made his comment after Patch reported that the Board of Education is drafting a resolution to oppose AB 1444 as it thought the legislation would prevent an environmental challenge to an MTA subway route under Beverly Hills High School. However, board President Brian Goldberg on Friday told Patch that Feuer’s comments do not change the board’s opposition to the bill. He said the board will still consider hiring a lobbyist in Sacramento to help defeat the measure. “We have seen legislation change dramatically during the legislative process and we do not have the luxury of waiting,” Goldberg said. “In addition, from a public policy standpoint, I am not sure why we [should] trust the MTA—a quasi-government agency—to bypass protections that we do not afford other businesses. What makes MTA special?” B e sure to follow Beverly Hills Patch on Twitter and “Like” us on Facebook . The rest is here: Board of Ed Still Plans to Oppose Mike Feuer Transit Bill
The Board of Education voted unanimously last week to use settlement money to reimburse $2.5 million to the Measure E bond fund and add another $2.5 million to the district’s basic aid reserve fund . Energy company Johnson Controls paid a total of $6.6 million to the Beverly Hills Unified School District’s general fund in November to settle claims regarding $7 million worth of goods and services the district purchased from the company at the recommendation of former facilities director Karen Christiansen. Johnson Controls had secretly hired Christiansen to be a consultant while she was working for the district. Christiansen was found guilty in November of four felony conflict of interest counts and was sentenced this month to four years and four months in prison for infractions that occurred while she was a BHUSD employee. The district has spent more than $2 million in Measure E funds on legal fees related to the months-long Christiansen trial. The $334 million Measure E bond was passed by voters in 2008 to help renovate all five BHUSD schools. The basic aid reserve now holds $3.25 million, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Alex Cherniss told the board. The fund is in place to support the district in case property taxes fluctuate and bring in less revenue than anticipated. Money in the basic aid reserve cannot be spent without approval from the board majority. The Johnson Controls settlement also includes a $1.6 million credit for goods and services from the company to be delivered at a later date. If the district doesn’t take advantage of the credit, it will receive $1 million in cash. “We will get approximately $1 million in additional funds in the next 10 months unless the board chooses to buy services [from Johnson Controls],” Cherniss said. “We will be coming back with a recommendation for another $1 million to appropriate.” Cherniss did not indicate how the additional funds might be spent.

As of 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 10 percent of precincts have reported results for the Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education race . Election results will be updated on the Los Angeles County Department of Registrar-Recorder’s website every 15-20 minutes throughout the night. Final results will not be available until all ballots have been hand-counted to account for write-in votes. The latest results are as follows: Brian Goldberg—827 (38.81 percent) Frances Bilak—484 (22.71 percent) Lewis Hall—428 (20.08 percent) Andy Licht—392 (18.40 percent) Noah Margo—unknown Andy Licht announced Sept. 21 that he was no longer seeking a school board seat. However, California Election code 1510 states, “No candidate shall withdraw his or her declaration of candidacy after 5 p.m. on the 88th day prior to the general district election.” The 88th day this year was Aug. 12, which means Licht’s name remained on the ballot. Licht said he would resign if elected, which would allow the board majority to appoint a successor for a two-year term until the next school board election. Board members who are directly elected serve for four years. As a write-in candidate, the number of votes cast for Noah Margo will remain unknown until all ballots are counted by hand.
