Memorial Run Honors Beverly Hills Drunk Driving Victim

December 5, 2011

More than 100 people, including policemen, firemen, family, friends and the public teamed up at Civic Center Plaza Saturday morning for a memorial 5K run/walk to honor the fifth anniversary of the death of Beverly Hills High School junior Vahagn Setian, and to raise money and awareness for the  Vahagn Setian Charitable Foundation . In December 2006, 17-year-old Vahagn and two 15-year-old girls were riding in a Land Rover driven by 26-year-old actor Lane Garrison, who crashed the car into a tree, seriously injuring one of the girls and killing Vahagn. Garrison’s blood alcohol level at the time of the accident was twice the legal limit. He ultimately pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter and served two years in prison. “We simply want [teens] to hear about what one decision cost our son, and try and make them look at the potential consequences of their actions before they take them,” Vahagn’s father Karen Setian said. He and his wife Ida created the foundation in their son’s name. “We want kids to look to the proper role models and follow their leads to better decisions.” The 5K event raised money so the foundation can continue to spread its message of proper decision making. Through the use of a wide range of educational programs, events and scholarships, the foundation strives to show youth that their actions have consequences. “When my son was killed, he and I were best friends, but I didn’t know his world. I didn’t know the world of the teens,” Setian said. “Our kids need to be taught that making good choices is OK even if it’s not the popular thing to do.” Setian wanted to give special thanks to city police officers who have supported the foundation’s efforts. Members of the Beverly Hills Police Department’s Baker to Vegas relay started the day’s 5K run and acted as route guides. “The police officers of Beverly Hills have been there for us since the crash and their support has continued every day since then,” Setian said. “I want kids to realize what great people our police officers are and look at how they handle life’s different paths.” Member of the Beverly Hills Firemen’s Association were also on hand to support the charity and participants. Jake Lefkowitz, a childhood friend and classmate of Vahagn, said he ran for his friend’s memory. “I miss ‘V’ every day,” Lefkowitz said. “You never get over such a loss, but time helps some.”  Setian said that when he returned home from the hospital after his son’s death, his neighborhood was filled with hundreds of people, mostly teenagers, who had heard of what had happened to Vahagn.   “It occurred to me that my son had touched so many people so positively because he was such a caring, warm and loving person. There is not a day that goes by where we do not hear from someone who wishes us well,” Setian said. “We lost our son, but gained a thousand new family members. Giving back to our community seemed like the best way to make something positive come from the loss of Vahagn.” Be sure to follow Beverly Hills Patch on  Twitter  and “Like” us on  Facebook .

Ana Beatriz Cholo: Gearing Up for Another Fight: Keeping LGBT History in Public Schools

November 21, 2011

The anti-equality folks behind the Stop SB 48 campaign suffered a recent disappointment a few weeks ago. Their ballot referendum to repeal SB 48 — the FAIR (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful) Education Law — failed to qualify because they did not gather enough signatures. But on Thursday, Nov. 17, several homophobic organizations requested title and summary from California Attorney General Kamala Harris for a November 2012 ballot initiative to repeal the FAIR Education Act. It’s on — again. And really, what a shame. Think about all the money that will get wasted on something so inane. The new law simply mandates that public schools in California include the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in age-appropriate social studies classes. It’s no different from how, over the years, we’ve come to include the contributions of Mexican Americans, women, African Americans, Native Americans, Asians, European Americans and members of other ethnic and cultural groups. The law goes into effect January 2012, and public schools in California are gearing up to become the first in the nation to do the right thing with regard to inclusivity of LGBT history in lesson plans. Thanks to this new law, students will now have the opportunity to learn a more accurate, inclusive version of history in an age-appropriate manner, one that might include the fact that, for example, the gay rights movement was sparked globally during the Stonewall Riots in New York City in 1969. This was when gay and lesbians decided to finally fight back against discriminatory, government-sponsored raids and unfair treatment that had spanned decades. Will learning this make kids gay? Not at all, but as you might suspect, a number of conservatives in our state are collectively wringing their hands, frantic with worry. Their worst fears are about to be realized. Homosexuality will now be taught in public schools, starting with little kindergartners as young as 5 years old. This sounds crazy, but the thing is they really believe this. They really believe this law is part of a larger gay conspiracy and that it’s designed to make kids gay and join our team. I know because I got to witness them talking about it firsthand the other night at Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, Calif. I drove an hour and a half to hear Karen England, Stop SB 48′s main proponent, discuss their failed campaign and what their next steps are in stopping “the homosexual agenda.” England is the executive director of a “pro-family” organization called the Capitol Resource Institute. As England put it that night, it’s one thing to live with same-sex marriage. After all, even some hardcore conservatives might say with resignation, “Well, that’s in their home. Live and let live.” “But now you’re talking about bringing it into our schools; you’re messing with our kids,” England continued indignantly. “Kids need to learn their ABCs, not about transgendered people.” There were about 40 people at the meeting. The first question came from a gentleman who pointedly asked, “How do we get rid of Mark Leno?” The way he said it, I wasn’t sure if he meant that in the literal or legislative sense. Leno is the out Democratic Senator from San Francisco who introduced the bill. A mother expressed concern over what her two school-age children will be taught at school starting next year. That sparked a conversation over the merits of pulling kids out of school for days at a time in an effort to a) deny the school district the money they would have received for that child during those days, and b) prove a point and show school officials that parents who disagree with the law can’t be bullied. Another woman identified herself as a school employee. She works in her school’s print shop and said she had a conversation with the assistant principal about the new law in recent weeks. “I won’t print that stuff for the children,” she said she’d informed the administrator, referring to LGBT-related materials that might end up coming her way. “I will walk,” she’d told him. The administrator had tried to dismiss her concerns, but she made it pretty clear that she would rather quit her job than allow gay people to be humanized. “I leave it in the Lord’s hands,” she told us, shaking her head. An elderly man said his worse fears were medically motivated. “The gay community has a lot of health issues that straight people don’t have.” What he said made me think back to leper colonies: is that what he wants for gays, to quarantine us so that we can’t spread disease? Now, we’re about to embark on Round Two of this craziness. Last month, they fell short of the necessary 504,760 signatures needed for it to qualify. They claim that they received 497,404 signatures. What we should consider is that this time, they will be ever more determined to make this one stick. As England summed up for her supporters, “We got this many signatures in 70 days; 150 days will be easy.” For months, the Courage Campaign worked to defend the FAIR Education Act as part of a broad coalition that included people of faith, labor organizations, LGBT groups, disability rights advocates, racial justice organizations and many more who care about equality. We will continue to fight. After all, this is no time for the LGBT movement to rest. Our opponents raised $100,000 for this campaign, and their highest donation came from the National Organization for Marriage, in the form of a $4,000 check. That means that lots of people contributed a few dollars here and there to help them out. During England’s pep talk, she mentioned how the churches of California rose up in this effort. These are churches that had never before been active in a political campaign until now. Calvary Chapel alone added 12 new phone lines just for volunteers to reach out and rally other churches around the state to get involved. She spoke of the tireless passion people demonstrated in ways big and small, like one woman in downtown Sacramento, pushing a baby stroller, with three additional kids in tow, who went into their office and told them she was willing to “go out into the streets” to get signatures. All this, England said, “to protect her family.” Did we see that same kind of passion from the LGBT community in trying to stop this ballot initiative? Not really, but we need to, because contrary to what the other side is trying to do, we’re looking out for all students in California.

Monday Morning Link: Huguette Clark

Monday Morning Link: Huguette Clark

Buckle up butter beans because Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bill Dedman filed his latest installment on MSNBC.com regarding the saga of wickedly rich and recently deceased copper heiress, doll collector and hardcore recluse Huguette Clark. And, children, it is a doozy. Mister Dedman combs through, chronicles and details court documents filed in relation to the legal battle brewing over the dispensation of Miz Clark’s approximately $400,000,000 fortune. The documents (and Mister Dedman’s report) shed a bit of light on just how Miz Clark’s closest advisers spent her money in the last years of her isolated life. With no children or close relatives, the aged heiress communicated with almost no one the last 20 or 25 years of

Monday Morning Morsel: Rihanna

November 7, 2011
Monday Morning Morsel: Rihanna

Thanks to Our Fairy Godmother in Beverly Hills Your Mama recently learned that Grammy-winning pop music sensation Rihanna (née Robyn Fenty) has somewhat quietly floated her water-logged Beverly Hills, CA mansion on the market with an asking price of $4,500,000. The children may recall that the Barbados-born international superstar snatched up the very contemporary crib high in the hills above Beverly back in September 2009 when she paid $6,900,000 for the then newly constructed 8 bedroom and 10 bathroom celebrity-size mansion. Just over a two years later, in late August (2011), it was revealed and widely reported by all the celebrity and real estate gossips that Riri was mad as a wet cat and had filed a lawsuit against the property developer (and a slew of others) that claims design and construction defects repeatedly allowed (rain) water to infiltrate and cause significant damage to various parts of the house after even the most moderate of rain storms. The gist and heart of the legal matter is that Rihanna (and her team of legal eagles and business managers) alleges the house was poorly constructed and leaks like a sieve when it rains. The suit goes on to claim the seller–named in property records and legal documents as Heather Rudomin–was or should have known about and disclosed the defects. In California, as in many states, sellers of real property must disclose any known defects or issues that might affect the value, use or enjoyment of the property. Not to disclose known faults constitutes fraud. A document provided to Your Mama by Our Fairy Godmother in Beverly Hills makes no bones about the current condition of the hill topping city view property–pictured in the document looking abandoned with paper and debris strewn over the front motor court–as having “significant water intrusion & moisture issues throughout” as well as “encroachment issues.” Furthermore, the listing states the property may be “subject to short sale” and that the seller “will consider all offers.” We don’t know the status of Miss Riri’s lawsuit against the property developer or any of the other many folks named in the suit, but it’s clear she’s ready to put this real estate episode behind her even if it means a multi-million dollar gut punch to her pocketbook. Note: listing photos above show the house as it appeared when Rihanna purchased the property and may or may not reflect the current condition and/or day-core of the home. aerial photo: Google listing photos: Coldwell Banker Previews International More here: Monday Morning Morsel: Rihanna
