Despite the charred ruins, it seemed for a moment that life at Another Planet was back to normal. Eddie (Sundown) Brown tapped the piano keys lightly to the beat of Luanne Poindexter's rendition of Errol Garner's "Misty." "Music soothes a savage beast. It gives you hope," Poindexter chimed in. Hope was what many homeless people needed Monday after the latest blow to their plans to maintain a cultural center on Skid Row.

By reputation, Orange County is white bread. But we who live and work here know that there's more diversity to the area than that. There are, for example, two long-established Hindu institutions: a cultural center with a vegetarian restaurant in Laguna Beach, and a monastery in Trabuco Canyon. The two actually represent very different branches of Hinduism. One branch, which is represented at the cultural center, is the International Society of Krishna Consciousness, or Hare Krishnas.

"Naming a cultural center for me," Bob Hope said with the kind of self-deprecating wit that makes troops stand up and cheer, "is like naming a monastery for Gary Hart." At his side, toward the close of dedication ceremonies for the new Bob Hope Cultural Center here Saturday night, President Reagan laughed. After all, Hope had let Reagan off easy, thanking the President for saying "nice things about me--even if I'm not Russian."

Opponents of a $22.3-million Thousand Oaks performing arts complex accused local school officials Thursday of sending political material on the issue to homes of the district's 18,000 students. The critics alleged that production of the flyers is an improper use of public money to support the cultural center proposal, which will go before city voters June 3 in a non-binding measure.

The resignation of Executive Director Roberta MacFaden Miller could open new doors for San Pedro's Angels Gate Cultural Center, but also poses another hurdle for the organization, which is trying to become a financially stable, influential force in the South Bay arts community. "The cultural center is Bobbie Miller, and we will certainly miss her," George Beck, president of the center's board of directors, said Monday night after Miller announced her plans.

The Dorill B. Wright Cultural Center, Port Hueneme's theater by the beach, will go dark indefinitely after a final program tonight, the center's director said. A victim of city budget cuts, the center's final scheduled show will be a musical tribute to a former volunteer. The 588-seat facility had been operating at its peak, attracting nearly 24,000 people last year, said center director Denis Murrin.
