This is where it all began. Supposedly. Fernando Vargas will no longer talk about it and Oscar De La Hoya says he doesn't remember it. But back when he couldn't seem to stop talking about it, Vargas claimed his hatred of De La Hoya, whom he will face Sept. 14 in a 154-pound title fight at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center, began on a snow-covered trail in this skiing/boating resort atop the San Bernardino mountains 120 miles from Los Angeles.

Plastic grocery bags in recent years have become standard at most markets. Sometimes the bagger will ask "plastic or paper?" but, if they don't, the likelihood is that you'll be lugging groceries home in plastic sacks. San Diego-based Big Bear Markets is trying to change this. In recent weeks the 30-store chain has started encouraging the use of paper bags once again. Plastic is still available, but paper is pushed. Paper containers also have replaced plastic foam in Big Bear delicatessens, and the stores are sprinkled with signs trying to educate customers on such things as buying pump sprays rather than aerosol.

Two days before the start of the busy Memorial Day weekend, U.S. immigration agents arrested 32 undocumented workers Wednesday in raids at two large Mission Bay hotels. Officials said the apprehensions at the jointly owned Bahia and Catamaran Resort hotels were routine, except that the presence of 80 agents was required to seal off escape routes on the hotels' sprawling grounds. The operation began with a 9 a.m. muster at an armory in National City, authorities said. The simultaneous raids at the two hotels, which began at about 11 a.m., went off largely without incident, according to federal authorities, although one unidentified Bahia employee, a U. S. citizen, was arrested for assaulting an officer.

One evening about three years ago, a San Diego housewife making dinner noticed that the expensive, supposedly lean, ground meat cooking on the stove was oozing an inordinate amount of fat. The woman called the state Department of Health Services, which investigated the market that had sold the meat and in turn alerted the consumer fraud unit of the city attorney's office.
