Dianna Weiner Dianna's Dishes In 1961, when John F. Kennedy told the nation to "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country," Richard Stone was listening. A few years later, he began a thirty-year career serving the city of Beverly Hills. Last week, Richard's family, friends, and colleagues came together to honor him. The Grand Trianon Room at the Regent Beverly Wilshire was filled to capacity. The AM singers from E1 Rodeo School (Richard's granddaughter, Teri, was among them) serenaded him with "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow." He received proclamations from Mayor Richard Riordan and Governor Gray Davis, a plaque presented by the president of the Beverly Hills School Board, Willie Brien, and accolades from his wife, Lona, son, Rich, and various friends and co-workers. Joining Richard at his retirement dinner were Lona, his daughter, Cindy, and her children, Alison, Shelby, Bennett, and "left; his son and daughter-in-law, Ron and Ronit, and their children, Tamara, Talia, and Carly, and his son and daugh- ter-in-law, Richie and Mary. Their sons, Jack and Keith, are too young to attend. By the way, Richie is following in his dad's footsteps: he is running for Beverly Hills Municipal Court Judge. Others who attended were Donna Ellman Garber, Lee and Harold Kapelovitz, Lynn and Mark Egerman, Rhoda and Jim Sharp, Barbara Miller-Fox and Walter Fox, Annabelle and Leonard Wasserstein, Lya and Harrison Latta, and the list goes on and on.
