Re "State ignored HIV law, judge says," Dec. 5 We have worked hard to expand programs that serve people living with HIV/AIDS. The waiver authorized by AB 2197 would have allowed people who now receive their care from the AIDS Drug Assistance Program to supplement their care by obtaining coverage from Medi-Cal. This cost would be offset by savings from enrolling Medi-Cal eligible people with AIDS into HMOs. We have a disagreement with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation about the vigor with which we pursued federal approval for this effort and worked to encourage individuals with HIV to enroll in managed care.

The largest AIDS clinic in the San Fernando Valley is closing, its officials said Thursday, in part because it's caught in an ironic trap: New drug therapies that offer the best hope yet of beating the disease are too expensive for its budget. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation's clinic in Van Nuys will cease operations in September, said foundation president Michael Weinstein, sending its nearly 500 uninsured or Medi-Cal patients to seek care elsewhere.

A new thrift shop whose proceeds will go to help people with HIV and AIDS has opened under an Art Deco tower on Whittier Boulevard. The 10,000-square-foot store, called Out of the Closet, at 5136 E.

Los Angeles' largest nonprofit AIDS services agency is suing to stop the city from foreclosing on a onetime AIDS hospice that was built with a city housing loan and is now being used as offices for HIV case managers. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation opened Linn House, its third hospice, on donated land near West Hollywood in 1995.

In a move that has angered physicians and AIDS activists, Los Angeles County may shake up the management of its sexually transmitted disease program, which has aggressively investigated the spread of HIV among porn performers. Critics say the proposed change could weaken efforts to halt the spread of HIV in the Los Angeles-based, $12-billion-a-year porn industry. "This appears to be a political move which could significantly interfere with disease control activities," said Dr. Gary Richwald, who headed the STD program between 1989 and 2000.

Regarding "A Howl of Anger" (Nov. 27): There are those in the AIDS arena who agree with many of Elinor Burkett's concerns and conclusions. It's no wonder she doesn't know of us. The pressure from "AIDS Inc." to silence us is shocking. We are "rebels" who see that the rate of new infection and other data mean that the status quo in education, prevention and testing is not working. For our efforts to deal with an epidemic that has far different ramifications as it moves steadily into the heterosexual world, we have been attacked by a number of "AIDS Inc."

Following the lead of Los Angeles County, a state lawmaker is proposing to require that all actors in pornographic films made in California be required to wear condoms to protect them from exposure to AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Assembly member Isadore Hall III (D-Compton) has scheduled a Valentine's Day press conference for Thursday at the offices of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation to announce the introduction of legislation similar to the requirement approved by county voters in November.

Weeks before the new Out of the Closet Thrift Store opened in North Hollywood, the donations were rolling in. "People just give and give," said Peter Frater of Van Nuys, a computer systems operator working as a volunteer at the store. "We were so happy." Location was probably a big part of the success.
