aroundtown Doctor Running (Or Actually, Walking) For State Assembly Candidate takes grassroots approach by visiting B.H. homes personally By Michele Lu "You encounter many hazards when you're walking around." The 6'2" man with dark hair, wearing a blue and white plaid shirt, blue pants and white tennis shoes smiled  I clumsily tiptoed through a puddle of water on the side- walk. For the past two weeks, Dr. Daniel Stone, candidate for State Assembly has walked around neighborhoods and has personally visited approximately 5,000 homes. Beverly Hills was the second city he visited. So far, he has covered virtual- ly all single family homes south of Sunset Boulevard, a large part of Park La Brea and the area west of Farmer's Market, and parts of Westwood, Mid- Wilshire and Sherman Oaks The election is March 7. Stone says that most people are sur- prised by his visit because it is unusual for a candidate these days to walk around and go door-to-door. He also says the L4." Max JK- ar  Dan/e/ about is his specialty. Stone is board cer- tiffed in Geriatric medicine-specializing in the care of seniors- and has been an attending physician at Cedars-Sinai since 1989. ||There are no medical doctors in the Assembly right now. Having a medical practice is a window into people's lives. I see, firsthand, the problems people face with +++ HMOs.$5 -- Dr, Daniel Stone reactions he has been getting are general- ly positive especially when he tells them that there are currently no medical doc- tors in the State Assembly. While there is a Chiropractor, a Dental Hygienist, a Nurse and an Oral Surgeon in the legisla- ture, Stone says "there is not enough experience in health care." The kind of feedback he has been receiving are questions about what he is going to do with his practice. Because legislature meets four days a week, eight months of the year, Stone says he will have to cut back on his practice but he will still try to meet the needs of his patients. "There are 25 other internists in the Cedars-Sinai Medical Group that can cover me, but I plan on doing my best to continue providing my patients with care, especially ones that I've had for over ten years," Stone said. Another question that people ask him Stone also says that people often express their frustration with HMOs. Stone tells them that Governor Davis recently passed a bill that established an HMO regulatory agency and that he wants to play a role in overseeing the effectiveness of the agency. In addition to his clinical practice, 60% of Stone's patients are on HMO plans. "There are no medical doctors in the Assembly right now. Having a medical practice is a window into people's lives. I see, firsthand, the problems people face with HMOs," Stone said. Stone was inspired to run for the State Assembly after reading an article in the Los Angeles Timzs that reported that 31% of the population in Los Angeles had no health insurance. "That's something that should not hap- pen in the richest state in the country," Stone said. 1 6. Beverly Hills Weekly Need Extra Cashl00 ? "'0 We Give You $100 Cash! Just Use Our Address!

When one real estate broker takes a listing, they deliver information in reference to their listing to the central org zation. The organization then dis- tributes this information to all real estate broker members. This gives greater exposure of the property to the general public and usually results in a faster sale. The commission earned on the sale of the properly is then divided between the listing broker and the selling broker. Most listings used by the multiple listing service are exclusive right to sell. A majority of all real estate sales are handled by cooperating real estate brokers, usually through the multi- ple listing service. EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO SELL An exclusive right to sell listing may also be referred to as an exclusive list- ing, exclusive authorization to sell, or exclusive authorization and right to sell. An exclusive right to sell listing is a written authorization giving one real estate broker the right to collect a com- mission if the properly is sold by anyone Nydia Lavine and Denny Lyons during the term of the contract. It pro- vides for payment of a commission to the real estate broker no matter who sells the property. A-real estate broker does not have to prove that he introduced the buyer to the seller to collect a commis- sion in an exclusive right to sell listing. A real estate broker is not permitted to use an exclusive right to sell listing with- out a definite termination date. The exclusive right to sell listing cannot be revoked because it is a binding contract. In an exclusive right to sell listing, a real estate broker cannot recover his expenses unless the seller has authorized the expenses. The exclusive agency listing and the exclusive right to sell listing are similar because they both require a definite ter- mination date.
