In 1951, Henrietta Oxe helped an older friend move into the Hollenbeck Home, the first licensed residence for the elderly in California. Oxe liked what she saw. When she retired as a storage company manager in Beverly Hills in 1982, Oxe moved onto the eight-acre spread on South Boyle Avenue, across the street from Hollenbeck Park in Boyle Heights. "I'd made up my mind a long time ago that that was how it was going to be," Oxe, 72, said.

Orchestral music lovers in Ventura County might have taken slight umbrage in past years, considering the conspicuous absence of that towering Southern Californian entity, the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The orchestra--which under the crack guidance and cutting-edge thinking of conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen has become an internationally respected unit--has held court in its usual home at the Music Center, and it's also shown up in Santa Barbara, under the auspices of the Community Arts Music Assn.

For nearly 50 years, Tapia Remigio has sat or snipped hair in the worn barber's chair closest to the front window of his dimly lit shop on Hill Street in Chinatown. It is the only chair he will use. Back when Chinatown was booming and a haircut cost $2 ($4 with a shampoo), there were three other barbers at the New China Town Barber Shop and they cut hair from dawn to dusk seven days a week. All that remains now is the shop's heart and soul, Remigio.

CITY COUNCIL * LIQUOR STORE: Upheld the findings of the Board of Zoning Appeals, which imposed several conditions on the operation of a liquor store at 1430 Martin Luther King Blvd. that nearby residents consider a nuisance to the neighborhood. One condition prohibits the use of advertising on windows that would block the visibility of the police into the store. Another condition--designed to discourage the sale of single cups--only allows the sale of cups if they are in packages.

Scavenger hunts and Capture the Flag, lanyards and s'mores, skits and softball. Is anything more fun than to be a kid at camp in August? Not much, according to a late summer survey of happy campers. So what if it's hotter than blazes? From the cool San Gabriel Mountains to the dusty San Fernando Valley to the gritty inner city, camp is gloriously in session. HOLLENBECK PARK 'This Place Is So Much Fun, So Much Fun' * Nature class is taught by pigeons nesting in the eaves.

Don't just walk by quickly, looking straight ahead. If you notice a person living on the street, don't pretend you don't. That's what Victor Rodriguez chose to say to a group gathered downtown one evening last week to hear from people who once were homeless and who know how it feels not to be seen. Rodriguez, 52, now lives in the Dewey Hotel Apartments, operated by the Skid Row Housing Trust, which develops and manages affordable housing in an effort to provide homes for the homeless.

It isn't a good time for anybody to be walking down Clarence Street. East L.A.-13, one of the four gangs in and around the Aliso Village housing projects, had been marked for an ambush. But that word on the street doesn't matter to Pastor Pete Bradford. It's Friday night, and his weekly walks through the neighborhood with former gang member Mike Garcia are a holy ritual, a spiritual signature known by the people of Boyle Heights.

He's been around a while. And he's been around. No wonder no one batted an eye as Haym Salomon was on the move again Tuesday -- this time to a new home in the Fairfax area. A 12 1/2 -ton statue honoring the Jewish financier credited with helping bankroll the American Revolution in 1776 was relocated to a busy street corner where it will help form a new gateway to Pan Pacific Park. It was the fourth time since its creation 62 years ago that the huge monument has been picked up and carted off.
