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.
