Beverly Hills merchants trying to preserve parking spaces in the city's main business district claimed a victory Tuesday as a judge temporarily blocked construction of a $37-million commercial project on a municipal parking lot. Superior Court Judge David Yaffe set aside the Beverly Hills City Council's approval of the construction project, suggesting that an underground parking garage planned as part of the development would not sufficiently replace the capacity of the current surface lot.

Surrounded by all those smiling photographs that fill Beverly Hills High School's 1983 yearbook, the one mug shot of Greg Parnas looms across the years as a picture of loneliness. The school's academic decathlon team won top honors in the county. Student parking permits jumped to $197.50 a year. And Oingo Boingo rocked 1,000 students on campus. In a yearbook that reveals an abundance of fun and much anticipation of the future, Parnas wears a sober expression, as if he had been told not to smile.

Beverly Hills police have arrested a housekeeper on suspicion of murder after her elderly employer was found stabbed to death in his North Rexford Drive home. Investigators offered few details about the killing Tuesday, which was the city's first in more than two years and occurred less than a block from police headquarters. Neither police nor a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner's office would identify the victim late Tuesday because they had not yet reached the next of kin.

Welcome to the other side of Beverly Hills. It's not the one filled with huge mansions, fancy cars and manicured lawns or populated with the mega-rich who favor endless Rodeo Drive shopping sprees. No, this side has very ordinary-looking apartments with green carpets in the lobby and tiny, leaf-filled pools, and it's made up of middle- and working-class people trying to get ahead by getting their kids into the coveted Beverly Hills schools.

You head out to the northeast side of Berlin on Konrad Wolf Strasse, a thoroughfare named for the brother of the East German spy chief. Pass Sandino Strasse and turn right on Simon Bolivar, and you'll come to the mayor's office.
