After objections from state health officials, a local businessman who is marketing an at-home test for the virus that causes AIDS has revised his plans. Stephen Coonan, president of Health Test Inc. in Costa Mesa, revamped his program to meet official objections raised this week. He began advertising his $44.95 test Tuesday on cable TV. As originally proposed, Health Test would have allowed individuals to take their own finger-prick blood sample and mail it to a lab for analysis.

If only it were open in this muggy weather. The city's first ice skating rink is under construction at 3400 Michaelson Drive for an Oct. 31 opening. The curious began taking notice when work on Irvine Ice Arena started in March. "There's a lot of interest," said Joy Medley, marketing director. "A lot of people have been passing by." The 37,800-square-foot complex features a health club, skating schools, massage therapy, corporate and youth hockey leagues and figure-skating shows.

The operators of the Irvine Ice Arena, who have fought the sale of the property for a future synagogue, have filed for bankruptcy. In addition, the owners of the land have filed two lawsuits against the rink operators, one to evict them and the other seeking about $450,000 in back rent. But the action does not necessarily put an end to ice skating in Irvine. The City Council last Wednesday voted to establish a task force to search for land to build an ice rink or other sports facility.

The manufacturer of a home AIDS test kit has sued the state Department of Health Services, complaining that the agency is unfairly withholding approval for it to sell the product. Stephen J. Coonan, president of Health Test Inc., which was founded in 1991 to tap the potentially lucrative AIDS testing market, said he has been stonewalled almost two years and that the suit, filed Friday in Orange County Superior Court, was the only recourse.

When Health Test Inc. began offering a home HIV test in March, the timing seemed right. The test, which people could order by mail for use in privacy, hit the market just after professional basketball player Magic Johnson announced he was HIV-positive. A public newly concerned about AIDS responded to the company's television commercial in such numbers that Health Test President Stephen Coonan foresaw sales, at $24.95 a test, to more than 100,000 people each year in California alone.

An Orange County manufacturer of an in-home HIV test kit has sued the state Department of Health Services, complaining that the agency is unfairly withholding approval for it to sell its product. The suit, filed Friday by Health Test Inc. in Orange County Superior Court, asks the court to order the agency to perform its duty--in this case, give the company permission to sell its $24.05 blood test that it says can detect the human immunodeficiency virus in the bloodstream.
