briefs cont. from page 7 Hills, a centennial YouTube channel, and 100 minutes of community service. The City Council allocated $750,000 for the celebration, which will kick off in Summer 2013 and continue through the end of 2014. Commission recommends locating dog park at Roxbury Park Now that plans for a new Roxbury Park community center are moving forward, the Recreation & Parks Commission has resumed its discussion of establishing an off-leash dog park in Beverly Hills. At its meeting Selt. 25, the commission agreed to recommend the croquet field at Roxbury Park as the proposed location for a dog park, which would be supervised and maintained by a citizen committee during a trial period, if approved by the City Council. "People already use Roxbury Park with their dogs," Commission Chair Susan Gersh said. "We couldn't think of any other area of the city that worked as well." Gersh said the commission determined the 14.400-square-foot croquet field, which is located along Olympic Boulgvard imme- diately north of the sand volleyball courts, would facilitate a fairly easy conversion to a dog park, and it would accommodate large and small dogs. The City of Beverly Hills currently does not allow dogs off-leash at any City park. In the spring of 2011, the commission ini- tially discussed the possibility of designating hours for dog owners to use the senior league field at La Cienega Park as an off-leash dog park. The infield would be closed, but the out- field would be open to dogs. Commissioners decided they were not in favor of sharing the baseball field with the dog park. Other locations that were previously con- sidered include City-owned property in the industrial area, the orange grove near Coldwater Canyon Park and an area adjacent to the fire department. At the Sept. 25 meeting, Gersh said the commission was also told the City would be posting bid documents Oct. 1 for the instal- lation of outdoor fitness equipment at La Cienega Park along La Cienega Boulevard. The commission has been looking into the purchase of the equipment since the spring of 2011.

The Sentinels (4-2. 1-0 in league play) took control of the game in the third quarter by intercepting two passes by Norman quar- terback Zack Bialobos and returning them for touchdowns. The Beverly Hills defense "played extremely well," defensive coordinator Derrick Robinson said. "They were able to stop Inglewood's offense even when Inglewood was down in the red zone." Robinson said. "We were able to take away their running game and able to put pressure on their passing game." The Norman defense recovered three fum- bles and made an interception. Outside linebackers Matt Hakimi and Austin Towns and defensive linemen Andreas Breliant and Jared Foreman drew praise for their play from Robinson. The loss was Beverly Hills' fifth to the Sentinels in the last seven games between the two teams. The Normans had a 14-game winning streak over Inglewood from 1985 to .2005. Beverly Hills (1-5, 0-1) is scheduled to continue Ocean League play Friday by play- ing Santa Monica (3-3, 1-0) at Santa Monica College. The opening kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. The Vikings "have exceptional athletes like Inglewood. but unlike Inglewood, they're able to run a power game and ... have two outstanding receivers they.can throw the ball to." Robinson said. To win. the Normans "will have to con- tinue to play physical as we did last week." Robinson said. "They're going to be more physical than Inglewood so we have to con- tinue to step it up and play more physical and rally to the ball and be dominant (and) shut down the run." The high school football website Calpreps. corn is projecting a 48-6 victory for Santa Monica. It projected the correct final score for Beverly Hills' game against the Sentinels.
