This town's name means "fat hill," and 120 years ago it was Fat City for silver miners who shipped their diggings off to the small pueblo of Los Angeles by steamboat and 20-mule team. Now it's the site of a major controversy. On one side is Jody Stewart, a woman who is restoring this little ghost town as a tourist attraction.

At night, when the wind whistles through the craggy Inyo Mountains and the moon reflects off the sheet-metal siding of the abandoned silver mine, you can hear the footsteps. Shuffling, stomping, kicking, heavy-booted footsteps on the rickety 125-year-old American Hotel's second floor--a floor that hasn't had regular night visitors in decades. Welcome, if you dare, to Cerro Gordo, one of the world's only bed-and-breakfast ghost towns. For 99 bucks a day, it's all yours.

The Galaxy managed only a 0-0 tie with Deportivo Saprissa of Costa Rica on Thursday night at the Home Depot Center. That leaves Coach Steve Sampson's team in a hole going into the second leg of the quarterfinal series in the CONCACAF Champions Cup. To advance, the Galaxy has to defeat Saprissa on March 8 in San Jose, Costa Rica, an intimidating spot where even the U.S. national team has never won.

The drought has federal officials worried about its effects on the nation's wildlife. Water levels at many of the country's wetlands, streams and reservoirs are shrinking, vegetation is growing sparse, and wild animals in some instances are being forced into areas where conflict with humans may occur, or already has occurred. Recent examples: --The death of 9,000 fish and 100 birds in the wetlands at the Stillwater Wildlife area near Fallon, Nev.

Some say ghosts walk the dusty streets of this abandoned silver-mining town. With a murder a week in the 1860s and '70s, bloodshed permeates its history. Cerro Gordo, meaning "fat hill," is an Old West settlement in the shadow of Mt. Whitney, on the eastern outskirts of Lone Pine. After the Civil War, it became "fat city" for silver miners, who shipped their diggings to Los Angeles. Unlike other California ghost towns that are parks -- such as Bodie and Calico -- Cerro Gordo is privately owned.

Paul Pellegrini has spent most his life on the sea, fishing California's stormy north coast waters. He has seen death there, too. Pellegrini lost his younger brother to the ocean. His wife's brother died in the same accident, their commercial fishing boat swamped at the jaws of Humboldt Bay. All told, the sea has claimed about a dozen fishermen Pellegrini once greeted daily on the docks. But that doesn't dim his resolve.
