Larry Oakley, a barber who owned the oldest business in Westwood Village -- a shop his family opened in 1929 -- and who counted celebrities including Howard Hughes and Bing Crosby among his regular customers, has died. He was 80. Oakley, who lived in Mar Vista, died Wednesday at Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital in Marina del Rey of complications from a staph infection, said Clinton Schudy, who manages Oakley's Barber Shop and will take over the business. In the 1920s, Oakley's uncle was cutting hair on Vermont Avenue across from the original UCLA campus when Westwood Village developer Edwin Janss made him an offer.

Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital is an essential part of our local health-care infrastructure ("Closures Put Big Hospital Chains Under Microscope," Aug. 22). It must not be allowed to close. Its emergency room is the nearest to LAX--an acknowledged terrorist target. There is no other emergency room south of the 10 Freeway and west of the 405 Freeway between Santa Monica and Torrance, so it would be a necessary part of dealing with a disaster in the event that a major earthquake damaged freeway bridges.

A judge Tuesday ordered Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital, which had been slated to close in two weeks, to remain open, pending trial on charges that its owner had violated commitments made when it bought the facility. California Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer had requested the order, arguing that Tenet Healthcare Corp. had not provided sufficient evidence that it had solicited input from the public, elected officials and others before deciding to close the Marina del Rey facility.

A giant hospital chain agreed Tuesday to conditions set by the state for its purchase of Daniel Freeman hospitals in Inglewood and Marina del Rey. The decision ends a drawn-out debate over the fate of Daniel Freeman Hospitals Inc., a nonprofit corporation so burdened with debt that it could not even repay $5 million borrowed from retirement funds of the nuns who own it. But, for some, the sale also increases concern about the future of nonprofit hospitals in California.

A 21-year-old rape victim filed suit Wednesday against a Catholic hospital for allegedly denying her information about and access to the "morning after pill" while she was receiving emergency treatment for the assault. Although the woman did not become pregnant, in so failing to inform or prescribe for a rape victim at risk of pregnancy, the hospital failed to provide optimal emergency treatment in accordance with the standards of good medical practice, the suit claims.

A state appellate court has ruled that a "morning-after pill" constitutes "prevention" against pregnancy rather than an abortion, and that a hospital may be sued for damages if it fails to tell a rape victim about the pill's availability. A three-judge panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal issued its finding in the case of Kathleen Brownfield, who was a 21-year-old Loyola Marymount University student in June, 1985, when she was raped and taken to Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital.
