HOUSTON, Texas -- There are a lot of necessary but unpleasant things - landfills, chemical plants and halfway houses being just a few - that can cause concerned homeowners to rush to the local zoning board to declare "Not in my back yard!" But some folks in the small city of San Marcos, Texas, recently dodged the ultimate NIMBY nightmare: a forensic research facility made up of dozens of dead human bodies left out in the open to rot. Otherwise known as "body farms," such facilities enable forensic anthropologists, medical examiners and police detectives to closely study the mechanics of decomposition on bodies that have been left out in the sun or buried in shallow graves or stuffed in the trunks of cars.

SAN MARCOS, Texas - The reeds swayed in the cool current of the San Marcos River, beckoning Dianne Wassenich like 1,000 slender fingers. She was in her swimsuit, and an inner tube was on the porch, ready to take her on another lazy trip down the river. But there was work to do. The director of an environmental group, Wassenich was busy folding hundreds of newsletters that contained the usual warnings of impending doom when the idea came to her - an idea that two years later has placed her tiny nonprofit at the center of a dispute over the water rights, and the future, of the West.

SAN MARCOS, Texas -- Recently, some 600 government, business and civic leaders from the explosively growing 22-county Austin-San Antonio corridor swarmed into this little college town for a futures conference.No single mayor or county official was in charge. The debate on fast-mounting transportation, water and air quality problems was officially unofficial.But this many people meeting to focus on a corridor linking two major metro regions is new here. Maybe we Americans are starting to emulate citistate alliances already making headway in Europe.

If you graft trendy Mediterranean cooking onto a traditional hotel dining room's menu, what do you get? The Pikesville Hilton's San Marco restaurant, which seems to know that the "cuisine of the sun" is what's happening, but doesn't want it to happen too drastically and upset the customers.At San Marco, you get a pleasant, comfortable dining room without much personality. Mediterranean is suggested obliquely, to say the least: by some vaguely Roman pictures on the wall and by grape leaves under the little containers of butter and cheese spread that come with the bread.

The audience member's question about novelist Tim O'Brien's daughter seems reasonable enough, except O'Brien doesn't have a daughter. As the writer was just telling the crowd at Towson University, however, her name is Kathleen. Or at least it was when he told a little about her in The Things They Carried, a Vietnam War novel Tim O'Brien wrote in 1990 from the point of view of a 43-year-old writer and war veteran named Tim O'Brien. And Kathleen is her name when he tells the crowd of a few hundred Wednesday night about how his daughter sometimes nudges her dad to stop already with the war stories.

For more than a century, the military and its various operations have been inextricably linked with the Chesapeake Bay from the Aberdeen Proving Ground all the way to Norfolk, Va., home port of the Navy's Atlantic Fleet. Recently, the Navy advised Dorchester County officials that it intends to resume bombing and strafing Bloodsworth Island, a 5,361-acre piece of unoccupied bay real estate, west of Tangier Sound, and three smaller neighboring islands, which it has owned since 1942 and used for target practice until 1996.
