People ask him what to plant in the giant pots he makes, and for a moment Frank Gallagher can't speak. He never saw them as something to hold plants but rather as pieces of shapely architecture on which the eye would light and the brain connected to it would experience what he calls a "feeling of warmth, comfort."

The fate of Proposition L, the city's grass-roots anti-growth measure, remained unclear Friday. It was trailing by seven votes with many absentee and provisional ballots left to count. "It's definitely too close to call," said Christiane Hayashi, communications manager for the city's Department of Elections. There were nearly 30,000 absentee and provisional ballots left to verify and count.

Results certified by the San Francisco Department of Elections show Proposition L, backed by slow-growth activists but strongly opposed by Mayor Willie Brown and major business interests, failing, 49.8% to 50.2%, a margin of 1,278 votes.

"Generally, we don't eat doughnuts in here," laughs Joan Winchell, as she opens a door to the intimate home theater that she and doughnut magnate husband Verne christened "The Bijou" because "it reminds me of a little jewel." One peek inside the 400-square-foot screening room and it's obvious why cruller consumption is frowned upon. This is no TV den. Retractable brass and wood-inlaid doors modeled after those housing the Chrysler Building's elevator hide a 9-by-7 screen.

Marcelo Villafane has tried telephoning relatives in Mexico City at least 30 times in the last two days--without success. Yet, he spent most of Friday trying to make contact. He doesn't have a telephone, so he used the one in his brother's house down the street. Villafane's experience was typical of many Latino residents of the Minnie Street apartments in southeast Santa Ana who have families in Mexico City and feel compelled to place calls throughout the day because they are worried.

Irish songbird Mary Black is blessed with a voice that is pure gold. A symbol of tonal purity, her alto soars, dips and flutters with a gracefulness uncommon in this era of one-dimensional, angst-ridden wailers. It's a glowing instrument that has long been embraced by the Irish--the veteran singer has sold more albums in her homeland than either U2 or Sinead O'Connor.

The San Francisco Examiner, a once-fabled newspaper that has been struggling to survive in the shadow of the dominant Chronicle, fired most of its editorial staffers Friday, but planned to continue publishing. The 25-cent tabloid will probably be offered for free, dismissed employees say they were told. The Examiner, which had about 40 employees, now will be assisted by reporters from two weekly publications that also are owned by Publisher Florence Fang. She could not be reached for comment.
