I was deeply saddened by the very negative article "Orange County Arts Center Has Fallen On Hard Times" (Nov. 29). There are many supporters and volunteers who believe that the Center is the best thing that has happened to Orange County in a very long time. The Guilds, all 2,800 of us, are having their best year in their 12-year history. We will give to the Center in 1990 about $620,000, which is $108,000 more than last year and $120,000 more than was budgeted. I might add that all that money was earned because of the loyalty, dedication and commitment of our members, who belong to 35 chapters located in every corner of this county.

President Clinton on Wednesday announced his intention to appoint Janice M. Johnson, long a prominent Laguna Beach patron of the arts, to the Committee for the Preservation of the White House.

The committee is primarily concerned with the principal corridor on the ground floor of the presidential mansion, as well as the main public rooms on the first floor.

During a recession that has hurt many arts organizations, the Pacific Symphony ended the 1991-92 fiscal year with a tiny surplus. More significantly, the group lopped off a sizable chunk of its accumulated deficit, orchestra officials announced Tuesday. The orchestra topped its operating budget of $5.3 million by nearly $41,000, or just under 1%. That came as good news on the heels of the 1990-91 season, in which the orchestra had come up short of its budget by $131,000.

To merge or not to merge? That is the question--again. The issue of whether Orange County's two biggest classical-music organizations should form an alliance has taken on new urgency with the imminent departure of Erich A. Vollmer as executive director of the Orange County Philharmonic Society.

Ever since the government vowed to simplify taxes in 1986, it seems it has become increasingly harder to file your annual tax return. Admittedly, the Internal Revenue Service has added a few shorter forms for those with no deductions and no dependents. But, by and large, those who have families and mortgages and credit card bills have been spending more time trying to figure out how much they owe to the IRS. And often, they've thrown up their hands and opted to hire professionals.
