The mailbox at the small, tired house on Cliff Street began to fill up last week--letters from around the state sent by complete strangers. How some of them got here was a small miracle. They bore no address or ZIP Code. Only "Jim White, Coach, McFarland, CA." Inside were checks for $20, $100, $500 and one for $1,000 for the high school cross-country team in this poor farm town.

It was Cheryl M. White's second month as superintendent of the Centinela Valley Union High School District in the South Bay, and already the job should have been testing her. The embattled district was named this month as one of 18 in California that could be taken over by the state for failing to meet federal goals in standardized testing. A week later, the state Board of Education gave leaders of a South Bay elementary school system the go-ahead to try to secede from the district.

Like so many dreams that come and go here, this one began with the harvest under a brutal sky. It was a late afternoon in August, 103 degrees outside, and the boys from the McFarland High cross-country team had been at it since 5 in the morning. They had spent the day in long sleeves and bandannas working without words alongside their parents deep in the fields. They were spread across farms for miles around, but the toil did not vary. They stooped and crawled.

No disturbances were reported Friday, said Police Capt. John Beerling. One male student was arrested Thursday on suspicion of felony assault on an officer and taken to Eastlake Juvenile Hall, Beerling said. Twenty-five other students were cited and released, he added.

Re "Plaza Hopes to Subsidize Big-Name Act," Oct. 3. I was astounded to read that the Alliance for the Arts was considering the reallocation of funds from local theater and musical groups to subsidize big-name acts such as Ricky Martin and 'N Sync. The maximum seating for the Fred Kavli Theater is only 1,800 and these "big acts" usually bring in $500,000 to $1 million. You do the math. This seems to me to be both fiscally absurd and patently unfair to local groups that work very hard to keep their organizations solvent.

Ruth Margraff's "The Elektra Fugues" is a fragmented, poetic vision of history's ultimate dysfunctional family on the eve of its collapse. In this intriguing Bottom's Dream production at the Ivy Substation, Margraff transports Euripides' tragedy "Electra" to America for an opera of emotional discord. Elektra (Alice Dodd), a disenfranchised punk-rock teen, seems repellent beside her good-girl sister, Chrysothemis (Cheryl White).
