The group said the former U.S.

Pacific Gas & Electric Co.'s plan to install 'smart meters' in this affluent Bay Area community of eco-friendly homes, yoga studios and organic restaurants has unleashed a torrent of anger among customers who fear the devices will expose them to hazardous pulses of electromagnetic radiation. Hundreds of Fairfax residents have posted red-and-white "Smart meter not here" signs beside their mechanical meters as a warning to PG&E technicians. A few have secured their spinning-dial meters with gates, cages and padlocks.

Environmental groups, stung by defeat and fearing a loss of momentum, said Wednesday they misstepped by asking voters to approve an overly broad measure in Proposition 128 but pledged to return with narrowly focused initiatives if state officials fail to heed their demands. "It is clear that the public sent the environmental community a message," said Carl Pope, conservation director of the Sierra Club.

Concluding a two-day visit to California, Bush said the state was one of nine included in a pilot program to restore up to 50,000 acres of wetland across the nation.

Lashing back at President Bush's characterization of him as "Mr. Ozone"--shorthand for criticism that he is an environmental extremist who would hurt American workers as he scurries about saving trees and owls--Democratic vice presidential nominee Al Gore sought to turn the tables Friday by saying Bush has been reduced to mean-spirited sloganeering in a desperate attempt to retain his job.

IT WOULD BE NICE TO KEEP the South Central Community Garden, an island of lush kitchen crops covering 14 acres amid the industrial warehouses, packing plants and junkyards that stretch for miles in a seemingly endless sweep along Alameda Street.

They had come up the hill in a Volkswagen for a look at the most famous big trees in the land. He drove into the Round Meadow parking lot and stopped right next to a strange, two-trunked set of sequoia twins known as Ed By Ned. She sat in the back of the van and ate a spinach salad. He stood at the base of the trees, stared straight up, whistled. There is not much to say in the shadow of living organisms older than Christ, broader than a highway, as tall as a football field.
