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."

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.

Despite the presence of 300 sometimes angry protesters, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday refused to bail out the San Fernando Valley's largest AIDS clinic, and instead chastised the foundation that runs the clinic for alleged fiscal mismanagement. The nonprofit AIDS Healthcare Foundation, one of the county's largest AIDS service providers, came to the supervisors seeking $1.2 million to keep its Sherman Oaks facility open.

An AIDS-care organization warned Thursday of an "alarming" rise in the rate of HIV infection in some segments of Los Angeles County's poor populations, but county health officials dismissed the group's statement as a misinterpretation of research figures. The president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation said that results from the county's random HIV testing program suggested that AIDS may be about to explode among the poor in much the same way it did with gay men a decade ago.

A nonprofit healthcare group announced Friday that they filed enough signatures with election officials to qualify a ballot measure that would let Los Angeles residents vote on whether the city should have a Public Health Department separate from the county's. Officials with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which has long been critical of the L.A. County Department of Public Health, said they turned in roughly 70,000 signatures (50,000 of which they believe are valid) from residents who think voters should decide the issue, which would likely be in June 2014.
