A top Los Angeles County health administrator fired last month for lying about his academic credentials is fighting his dismissal on the grounds that others in the department have known about his lack of education for years and still helped him get promotions. Assistant Health Services Director Walter Gray was fired from his post as director of the public hospital system after county officials said an investigation found that he had falsified resumes and job applications.

Remember the controversial finale of "Fatal Attraction," a bloody bathroom scene during which Anne Archer guns down Glenn Close shortly after Michael Douglas dunks her in a bathtub? Some movie fans may recall that another, far less violent ending was first shot by director Adrian Lyne. The original conclusion to the 1987 thriller will be included on a new home-video and laser-disc release of "Fatal Attraction" in March from Paramount Home Video as part of its "Directors' Series."

Everything seems to be coming together for Terri Lyne Carrington. She has played with the giants of the jazz and contemporary music worlds. Some of them--Wayne Shorter, Grover Washington, Patrice Rushen, John Scofield, Gerald Albright--are guests on her debut album for Verve/Forecast Records, "Real Life Story," due out this week. She has a steady job five nights a week in the Hollywood-based band on Arsenio Hall's TV talk show.

Russell Lynes, a pre-eminent American cultural historian, primarily in the areas of architecture and art, is dead. The former managing editor of Harper's Magazine who probably was best known for his satirical "Highbrow, Middlebrow, Lowbrow," in which Americans were told how to rate their family and friends for snob appeal or lack of it, was 80 when he died Saturday at a New York City hospital. He died of apparent heart failure.

The Lively Audience by Russell Lynes (Harper & Row: $25) A pre-eminent American cultural historian, Lynes is both optimistic and generous, a rare combination of qualities in a field overrun with carpers, cavilers and viewers-with-alarm. Ever since the late '40s, when he became managing editor of Harper's magazine, his perceptive observations on the fine and lively arts have amused and enlightened a growing public.

Director Adrian Lyne ("Fatal Attraction") knew that making a new version of the classic Vladimir Nabokov novel, "Lolita," would stir up controversy. He set out anyway to tell anew the story of a middle-aged teacher and his love affair with a teenage nymphet. "Doing a version of a novel that Stanley Kubrick had already done--and Kubrick is hailed as a genius--I knew it wouldn't be an easy road. It certainly hasn't let me down," Lyne reflected recently.

At first, I wondered where the musical commonality was between Terri Lyne Carrington and Patsy Moore, who will perform together Sunday at La Ve Lee in Studio City. Carrington is the immensely talented jazz-rooted drummer who has worked with such greats as Wayne Shorter and James Moody. Moore is an acoustic folk-pop singer-songwriter in the Joni MitchellJoan Armatrading tradition.

There's nothing Terri-Lyne Carrington would like better than to see a few sympathetic record company artists and repertoire people in the audience when she performs at La Ve Lee tonight. "I'd love to get together," she said in a conversation earlier this week, "with an A & R guy who's interested in working with a performer who's a little left of center, but with some real commercial appeal." The 27-year-old drummer's first album sold more than 100,000 copies and was nominated for a Grammy Award.
