The opposition party keeps saying to President Clinton, "No, No No, No, NO, NO." Just like it did to Presidents Reagan and Bush. That's politics, Billy. JOHN JAEGER Irvine

The Times filed a motion Friday opposing a court order that would bar public access to records in a sexual harassment case involving Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar. The newspaper said it is seeking to be heard on the public's right to access records in the lawsuit filed last year by former Huizar Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy because the case involves "matters of substantial public interest. " Huizar attorney Dennis Walsh filed paperwork four weeks ago seeking a protective order to prohibit disclosure of "private and sensitive information" until it becomes evidence at trial.

I live right down the street from Soka University and my experience with the people there has been nothing but pleasant. However, I'm opposed to expanding the current facility to accommodate 5,000 or more students. I think it would cause a tremendous impact on the environment of the area, which is still one of the nicest rural areas in close proximity to the Los Angeles basin. ROBERT SCAPA Calabasas

The vast majority of Ukrainian voters oppose Russian military intervention in their country, even in the east and south where large Russian minorities live, a U.S.-funded poll by a Gallup affiliate showed Thursday. The April 3-12 survey of 1,200 randomly selected Ukrainians of voting age by Baltic Surveys/The Gallup Organization found a nationwide average of 85% against any Russian military intervention, the International Republican Institute said in a summary of the poll paid for by the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Her real speaking voice falls somewhere between the hard Midwestern of her Jessica on HBO's "Hung" and the cool sophisticate, Samantha, she plays in the new film "Spread." Which only makes sense; Anne Heche is from Ohio but has navigated the palms of Hollywood for more than 20 years now since playing good and evil twins on "Another World." Now, at 40, her two current roles are akin to playing two sides of the same woman again. "I thought it was an incredibly sexual role and a challenge to be an 'older woman' in the film," she says of acting opposite Ashton Kutcher in "Spread."

Regarding the controversy over opposing pro quarterbacks having dinner together before a game: So what? They're probably discussing common interests and common problems. When I will worry is if a quarterback takes the opposing defensive players out to dinner. JERRY M. MOORE Los Angeles

HONOLULU - In primaries across the country - in Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi and other states - Republicans are locked in a heart-and-soul battle between purists and pragmatists clashing over what it means to represent the party, its philosophy and core values. Here in Hawaii there's a similar fight over power and purpose, but this one is between Democrats. It's a fight for a U.S. Senate seat, a rare enough prize in a state that has elected just six people senator since statehood in 1959.

It is about the size of a dime and light as a feather. But in the eyes of the broadcast television industry, an Aereo antenna might as well be a hundred feet tall and weigh a thousand pounds. The big networks claim it is illegal and could destroy everything they hold dear. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments from both sides, and the results could have major implications for the future of television. Launched in 2012 by Chaitanya "Chet" Kanojia, an Indian-born engineer with 14 patents, Aereo enables consumers to stream and record on the Internet the over-the-air signals of local broadcasters via remotely stored antennas.

Higher prices are the new black for Netflix. The Los Gatos, Calif., streaming video company plans to raise prices for new customers by $1 or $2 a month this quarter, the company said Monday in its quarterly earnings release. Existing customers will continue to pay the current prices for "a generous time period," the company said. Access to the company's streaming video library currently costs $7.99 a month for suscribers in the United States, and Netflix has been experimenting with pricing models as it spends to improve its selection of movies and television shows and builds out its slate of original content.

SAN DIEGO -- The county Board of Supervisors voted 3 to 1 Tuesday to oppose any attempt by the state Legislature to "eliminate or restrict the use of orcas at SeaWorld . " A legislative committee last week delayed a vote on a bill that would end orca shows at SeaWorld San Diego. The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica), was sent out for "interim study," an ill-defined process that could last 18 months. The county board alerted the chief administrative officer to be ready to oppose any attempt to reintroduce the Bloom bill or any other bill to curtail the killer whale shows.

The United States is irked that Iran has chosen as its representative to the United Nations a diplomat who apparently was involved with a student group that seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979. The embassy takeover, a violation of international law that led to the 444-day captivity of 52 American hostages, contributed to hostility between the two countries that only recently has begun to abate. But the Obama administration is making a mistake in publicly labeling as "not viable" the posting to the U.N. of Hamid Aboutalebi, an experienced diplomat aligned with Iran's reformist President Hassan Rouhani.

WASHINGTON - In recent years, the National Rifle Assn. has stepped into fights over judicial nominees it views as weak on 2nd Amendment rights, but its decision to oppose a surgeon general nominee takes the powerful lobby into new territory, expanding its campaign to a post that has no direct power to regulate guns. President Obama's nominee, Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, a Massachusetts internist and former emergency room doctor, has called for more stringent gun laws. But he also testified at his Senate confirmation hearing last month that he would not use the surgeon general's office as a bully pulpit to push for them.

As your team starts a second-round playoff game, it is appropriate for a coach to show support for his team by wearing: A--The team colors. B--Anything but the opposing team's colors. C--Nothing. D--The opposing team's colors. Well, if you're Robbie Ftorek of the L.A. Kings, the answer is D. But of course, don't we all remember Tommy Lasorda wearing a Mets' hat? JONATHAN E. MILLER Reseda

An effort headlined by Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter to unionize athletes at the university doesn't sit well with former Wildcats QB C.J. Bacher. Bacher was left uneasy by testimony at a National Labor Relations Board hearing from representatives of the newly formed College Athletes Players Assn., which seeks to have the athletes declared employees. “I felt like the CAPA testimony was pretty unfair to what Northwestern football meant to me,” Bacher said in a phone interview.

A band of homeowners associations have lined up in opposition to allowing a Bel-Air home to exceed city height rules, arguing that hillside development restrictions are being eroded by granting exceptions to some landowners. “Little by little, they are dismantling” the hillside ordinance enacted three years ago, said Marian Dodge, president of the nonprofit Federation of Hillside and Canyon Assns., which includes dozens of local groups. If this home is allowed to build higher, she argued, “any neighbor can say, 'Why can't I?
