At nightfall, this picturesque town near the meeting of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountains gets people choked up, but not with emotion. The culprit is wood stoves. After work, folks like to build a nice, cozy fire. On Main Street the smoke is thick enough to suggest an antique steel mill lurking around some corner. The roads are a more immediate danger than air quality. The rate of auto fatalities here in sparsely populated Lassen County is almost triple the statewide average.

For Larry Zanoff, the armorer who lent Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" its firepower, fake blood can be a serious occupational hazard. "The gun gets splattered with fake blood," he said. "Now it's all gummed up; it doesn't want to work anymore. That's why we had backup guns, multiples and multiples of them. " Zanoff, 48, has never had a shortage of guns in his life. The son of a defense industry engineer who was also a competitive rifle shooter, Zanoff showed at age 6 an aptitude for disassembling his father's firearms.

San Diego State got a home run and great starting pitching, two ingredients it was missing most of last season, to open its 1992 baseball season Monday with a 4-0 victory over Point Loma Nazarene in Point Loma. Lassen Community College transfers Matt Cleek and Benji Grigsby, both making their Aztec debuts, were the keys to the victory. Cleek, a first baseman, hit a two-run homer over PLNC's center field fence to give the Aztecs a 3-0 lead in the fifth inning.

Three high school seniors have signed national letters-of-intent to play basketball at San Diego State, Aztec Coach Jim Brandenburg said Monday. The three are Darnell Cherry, a 6-foot-10 forward from Morse High School; Marcus Banks, a 6-9 forward-center from East Central High in San Antonio; and John Molle, a 6-5 guard-forward from Irvine High.

His season is finished, and there isn't much San Diego State pitcher Benji Grigsby can do except sit back and wait. And sweat. A day before the beginning of the annual June Free Agent Draft on Monday, Grigsby is home in Lafayette, La., attempting to plan his career while worrying that his draft position is sinking more quickly than George Bush's approval ratings.

San Diego State pitcher/designated hitter Benjie Grigsby, a transfer from Lassen Community College, already is being called "The Great Grigsby" by the SDSU sports information department. So far, the name fits. He has done little wrong since becoming an Aztec. In 11 appearances, he is 5-0 with two saves and a 0.68 ERA. In 26 1/3 innings, he has struck out 46 batters and allowed only 12 hits and two earned runs. Opposing hitters are batting only .140 against him.

Weighing his athletic possibilities beyond high school, former San Diego State pitcher Kurt Archer realized he didn't quite have the appetite for football that he had always had for baseball. It meant turning down a football scholarship to Washington State, but Archer chose baseball, and he is now one of the top pitching prospects in the Milwaukee Brewers' organization. His love of baseball and his distaste for gaining weight for football were the two biggest factors in his decision, he said.
