SAN RAFAEL, Calif. - The protests rang shrill enough to wake the dead. After officials in this upscale Marin County town north of San Francisco approved a downtown mortuary's request to add an on-site crematory, denizens of a popular bakery next door weren't exactly pleased. "Bake Bread, Not Bodies!" fumed one sign at a raucous City Council meeting in May. Another read: "Over My Dead Body." Neighbors winced at the image of a "cadaver incinerator" that would run year-round, 16 hours a day. An Internet Web site created by critics warned of large bodies that could take eight hours to burn, rather than the average 90 minutes.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- Grocery bags with a 9-year-old Salvadoran boy's story of how he illegally reached California are headed for a shredder this week, after enraged residents succeeded in getting the bags withdrawn.The incident is the latest evidence of the growing disdain for illegal immigrants in California. Gov. Pete Wilson has blamed the undocumented aliens for the state's laggard economy, saying that the immigrants drain the budget by clogging welfare rolls and medical clinics.Tensions have been particularly high here in Marin County, a wealthy San Francisco suburb that in recent years has become a refuge for thousands of immigrants, including many who work as gardeners and construction laborers.

George Lucas' high-tech film wizards have brought dinosaurs to life in "Jurassic Park" and enabled Tom Hanks to shake hands with John F. Kennedy in "Forrest Gump."But the force hasn't exactly been with the "Star Wars" creator in his efforts to work a different sort of miracle in growth-averse Marin County just north of San Francisco -- that of vastly expanding his movie-making empire.Mr. Lucas has proposed spending $81 million to build state-of-the-art facilities on hilly ranchland adjoining his Skywalker Ranch in San Rafael.

Neil Drysdale has never run a horse in the Kentucky Derby. Yet Drysdale, a 52-year-old native of England, is considered one of this country's top trainers. Based in Southern California, he has trained five Eclipse Award winners, including A.P. Indy, the colt who nearly took Drysdale to the 1992 Derby. Drysdale scratched him the morning of the race because of lameness. A.P. Indy recovered to win that year's Belmont and Breeders' Cup Classic. He was voted Horse of the Year. Today, Drysdale unveils the horse some handicappers say may be the most talented 3-year-old in America.
