A pine tree strung with multicolored lights marked the home of Sheila James Kuehl in Santa Monica, an appropriate beacon for the rainbow coalition found inside. Volunteers, staff workers and politicos--gay, Republican, Latino, labor, lesbian and Democrat--were sipping Chardonnay and Scotch and brandishing cigars there Tuesday night to celebrate what one called "the one glimmer of hope" for liberals on a night of conservative election victories nationwide.

Eight years ago, a handful of well-known Democrats spent an unthinkable $2 million in a bruising fight for the state's 23rd state Senate District seat. It was a record-breaking sum to spend on a California legislative primary race, narrowly won that year by then-Assemblyman Tom Hayden. Today, campaign spending for the same seat has climbed even higher.

No matter how you look at it, voters in the 41st Assembly District have a clear choice on Nov. 8: They can send Democrat Sheila James Kuehl, a child of the '60s, to Sacramento, or opt instead for Republican Michael T. Meehan, a member of Generation X. Kuehl is unapologetically liberal, a feminist and a law professor. She gained early fame as the brainy Zelda on the television sitcom "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis," and later acclaim as a nationally known expert on domestic violence.

Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl strolled into her post-election party 15 minutes before it was supposed to start, eagerly greeting the tiny knot of supporters who preceded her. At a rival gathering across town, Assemblyman Wally Knox appeared at his own not-so-festive party about an hour late Tuesday night, remaining stone-faced as he badly trailed Kuehl, a longtime Democratic ally. "I think it looks really good," Kuehl said at a Santa Monica restaurant as the results began to tumble in.

In her July 27 Counterpunch ("Ice-T Critics Miss the Rapper's Real Target"), Sheila James Kuehl points out that the firestorm of criticism against Time Warner's "Cop Killer" ignores a prime victim of Ice-T's performances: women. She's absolutely correct. Most of the public's outrage has focused on the murder of police officers. She's quite wrong, however, to include me in her indictment. From the beginning, including my speech at the Time Warner shareholders' meeting, I've pointed out that most of the songs in the album celebrate the criminal debasement of women in even more obscene detail than "Cop Killer" uses to call for killing cops.

Republican Michael Meehan, 28, is a law student at Loyola Law School and a reserve deputy sheriff. He is single and lives in Santa Monica. If Kuehl wins, she will be the state legislature's first openly gay member.

You could say the Church of the Nazarene is interested in a change of heart. Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Santa Monica church is offering free "Love Transplants" for interested parishioners. But rest easy. Pastor Clarence Crites, who is making the offer via the church's outdoor marquee, assured us the operation is spiritual, not surgical, and involves love, not vital organs. * SACRAMENTO-BOUND?

Assembly candidate Sheila James Kuehl is being accused by her opponent of exploiting the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson for political gain while at the same time poisoning the jury pool in the trial of O.J. Simpson. The charges stem from a campaign brochure that Kuehl, a Democrat, sent this week to voters in the 41st Assembly District, which runs from Santa Monica to the San Fernando Valley.

Re: " 'Runaway Productions' Threaten Our Stability," Aug. 22. I was very happy to see Assembly member Sheila James Kuehl's article backing Assembly Bills 358 and 484. As she stated, these are only the first steps to bringing our work home. Studios, just like other businesses, will go where costs are cheapest, and at this point they are finding that in other countries. And as she stated, that is killing the American dream for thousands. I've been in this business for over 25 years and have never seen it as bad as this.

Newly elected Assemblywoman Sheila James Kuehl has announced legislation that would prevent the expansion of existing landfills and the creation of new ones in the Santa Monica Mountains and other local mountain ranges. Assembly Bill 407, she said, would offset legislation enacted last week by the House of Representatives that weakens the power of federal agencies to issue regulations to protect the environment.

With less than two weeks to the March 7 primary elections, the two candidates for the Democratic nomination in the state's 23rd Senate District have together raised almost $2 million, campaign finance reports filed Thursday show, making it one of the most costly legislative primary campaigns in California history.

Maybe it was the rain. Or maybe it was the fact that the candidates' forum Monday took place in a hotel nestled in the curve of the congestion-choked 405-101 interchange, where attendees could see traffic crawling through the drizzle from banquet tables by the windows. Whatever the reason, transportation emerged as a common theme at a forum co-sponsored by the Valley Industry and Commerce Assn.

On paper it can be hard to tell them apart. Assemblyman Wally Knox (D-Los Angeles) and Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) are both liberal Democrats with voting records to prove it. She cares passionately about the environment, education and health care. Ditto for him.

Who will make big news in the business world this year? Who will emerge from relative obscurity to become a major player? To start the new year, Times business reporters selected people from their beats who they believe will be among those to watch in 2000--in Southern California, across the country and around the world. Some are well known, having made big news in previous years. Others are not exactly household names but nevertheless are likely to make a major impact in their fields.

Buoyed by Tuesday's legislative balloting, Latino politicians are poised to add to their numbers in Sacramento, while gays are excited about the prospect of electing the Legislature's first openly gay politician. In the Inland Empire, the Christian right rallied around the candidacy of conservative Republican Assemblyman Ray Haynes, who scored a surprisingly easy primary victory in the 36th state Senate District primary.

Assembly members Sheila Kuehl and Wally Knox had their first face-to-face Thursday in their winner-take-all Democratic primary race to represent the southwest San Fernando Valley and Westside in the state Senate, and the initial question from the audience could not have been more apt: So, what do the both of you think about term limits? Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) and Knox (D-Los Angeles) consider each other friends. Both admit their views and voting records are nearly identical.
