A Los Angeles Superior Court judge set a trial date for a pair of slander lawsuits brought against KCBS-TV for reporting that a Porter Ranch couple ran a sex club out of their home, an attorney for the couple said Monday. Robert and Sharon Dow sued the CBS Network and five Channel 2 reporters last year alleging slander, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress for a series of 11 broadcasts about their sexual affairs in June and December of 1991.

A house in a quiet Porter Ranch neighborhood was used as a group sex club until it was shut down on charges of violating city zoning codes, Los Angeles police said Friday. Robert and Sharon Dow operated a $50-per-couple "swinger's club" in their home in the 18900 block of Kilfinan Street near Sesnon Boulevard, violating a 1986 zoning ordinance that prohibits operation of a sexually oriented business within 500 feet of a residence, said Sgt. Ken Kreider.

Hoping to derail a charter schools initiative headed for the November ballot, lawmakers Thursday proposed legislation that would make it easier to create such public schools. If a deal is struck, it will be a testament to the leverage that initiative proponents wield in the Capitol. Until the initiative was proposed and funded, powerful public-school lobbying groups had blocked efforts to expand the number of charter schools. A 1993 law allowed their creation in California.

Born of an itch to innovate, California's fledgling charter schools are fighting what some consider the greatest challenge yet to their independence: a proposed requirement that all staff join local unions. Hundreds of charter school representatives are expected to rally in Sacramento today against the proposal by Assemblywoman Carole Migden (D-San Francisco), which is sponsored by the state's largest teachers union, the California Teachers Assn.

With teacher ratification of a new contract expected today, school district officials concentrated Wednesday on ending a boycott in which students have been kept home by their parents, and eyed possible cuts in next year's budget that are sure to be controversial. Despite a tentative teachers' wage settlement Monday, the boycott that has kept thousands of students out of school during the last 10 days continued Wednesday, though at diminished levels, according to school officials.

About 200 city teachers who have worked without a contract since September marched in quiet protest Tuesday, but school district officials said it will be at least another week before they know if an employee pay raise is possible. "We're tired of this kind of stuff going on year after year," said Jean Curtis, president of the Compton Education Assn., as teachers with picket signs and balloons paced the sidewalk at the district's Tamarind Street administration building.
