Thank you for your story on Assemblywoman Sheila J. Kuehl (Sept. 12). As a student at Loyola Law School, I was privileged to attend her class on women and the law. She is a friendly, intelligent woman, who is deeply concerned about the political and social issues affecting our state and our society. It is too bad that other members of the Assembly cannot follow Kuehl's example and set aside blind ideology and partisan bickering. She is an example of our political system at its best--a system in which politicians strive for common ground, instead of pandering to the worst fears and prejudices of the people in order to scare up votes.

Thanks to a big roster of small contributors and a sizable chunk from his own pocket, Los Angeles County supervisorial candidate Bobby Shriver has jumped ahead of rival Sheila Kuehl in gathering campaign cash for the race to replace incumbent Zev Yaroslavsky, finance statements show. In addition to donating $300,000 of his own money, Shriver collected $547,736 from a list that reads like a who's who of the entertainment industry, including talk show host Oprah Winfrey, actor Tom Hanks and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

State Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) will host a discussion Thursday of the 310 area code overlay. Under the overlay plan, a new area code--424--would serve the same geographic area as 310 on the Westside of Los Angeles and the South Bay. But because of vocal objections from customers and lawmakers, the July 17 introduction of the overlay code was postponed to allow regulators at the California Public Utilities Commission to review alternatives. The town hall meeting is set for 7 p.

In Elaine Dutka's March 20 article on the angry reaction to the movie "The Silence of the Lambs," Tammy Bruce of the National Organization for Women says "the bottom line is that violence does happen primarily to women and you need to portray that reality." In fact, with the exception of children, women are the segment of the population least frequently victimized by violence. (Young males corner the market here.) Similarly, Sheila Kuehl of the Southern California Women's Law Center asserts that violence against women in films is "taken for granted like the air we breathe."

Hollywood's talent managers, who have been wringing their hands over a pending bill in Sacramento that would regulate them in the same way the state now regulates agents, won't have to worry for now. Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) said she plans to amend a bill she has introduced so that it more narrowly targets unscrupulous managers who prey on aspiring actors who can't afford an agent.

The field of contenders became clearer Friday for Los Angeles County government's June election, the first in decades that will have no incumbent on the ballot, as a period for candidates to file papers closed. Term limits are forcing out two county supervisors, and the sheriff and the assessor chose not to seek reelection amid corruption scandals involving their agencies. Topping the list of contenders seeking to replace Zev Yaroslavsky as a western county representative on the Board of Supervisors are former state lawmaker Sheila Kuehl and Bobby Shriver, a former Santa Monica mayor and a member of the Kennedy political dynasty.

Los Angeles County supervisorial candidate Sheila Kuehl is taking aim at rival Bobby Shriver's absences on the Santa Monica City Council, saying the former local elected official should have made it to more meetings instead of "spending so much time in Hyannis Port. " Shriver, who last week announced his candidacy for the west county seat being vacated by longtime Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, missed nearly one out of five meetings during his eight years on the council, a Times review found.

SACRAMENTO -- Former state Sen. Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) made it official Thursday. She will be a candidate for the seat being vacated by Zev Yaroslavsky on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Kuehl, who served as chair of the Senate Health Committee during part of her 14-year tenure in Sacramento, said the board was a natural fit for her policy interests. “I have been steeped in the very issues that are under the purview of our Supervisors every day,” Kuehl said in a statement mailed to supporters seeking donations for her campaign.

Schwarzenegger's report card Re "An amateur governor and the mess he's made," Opinion, Aug. 9 What is Sheila Kuehl's point when she writes that "there is no room for amateurism in government"? Ha ha ha ha ha. (Wiping tears from eyes.) Really?! Is that why she left government?

Facing a certain veto, state lawmakers have abandoned their effort to require that textbooks in California schools detail the history and achievements of gays and lesbians in America. Supporters removed that provision of the gay rights bill, which passed the California Senate in May, so that the measure only bars teaching anything that "reflects adversely" on people because of their sexual orientation. Schools would also be prohibited from sponsoring any activities that sanction such a bias.
