You look around Joe Marino's place here, halfway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and there is no doubt he lives in the desert. There is sand everywhere. It isn't just that the sand has filled up his toolshed so that he cannot get inside it, or that it has settled so high around the big tree out back that he can now walk into the treehouse. The sand is in his house. On the windowsills, on the floors, in the cupboards, in the furniture, in the clothes hanging in the closet.

War broke out in the Mojave Desert on Thursday, and at stake is the single most precious commodity in this vast, arid land--water. On one side are the 50,000 people of Barstow who have watched with alarm as the city's water table has plummeted 43 feet over the past three years to an all-time low. Their rivals are a cluster of mushrooming communities upstream on the Mojave River.

Clifford J. Walker is a historian and an expert on a river many think is a myth--the 150-mile Mojave River, one of the longest and largest underground rivers in the world. "A lot of people don't believe there is a Mojave River. They see the dry bed not realizing that beneath it flows a wide, wide river," said Walker, 60, who teaches a course on the history of the Mojave Desert at Barstow Community College.

Nick Zupo says the good news is that trout fishing at Big Bear Lake should be red-hot right now. The bad news is that it won't be for long. Big Bear, along with all other Southern California fisheries, will be hit hard by a severe cutback in the state's trout planting program. Zupo is a fish culturist at the Mojave River state fish hatchery, which will be closed by Oct. 1, a victim of $12.

Assemblyman Paul Woodruff (R-Redlands) said Thursday he has the necessary 41 votes to keep the Mojave River State Fish Hatchery from closing, or at least from staying closed for long. The Victorville hatchery, scheduled to close Oct. 1 as part of budget cutbacks by the Department of Fish and Game, is the primary supplier of rainbow trout to public fisheries in Southern California.

Two firefighters battling the 2,500-acre Pinnacles fire in the San Bernardino National Forest were injured in a water tender rollover Wednesday. Both were taken to Loma Linda Medical Center, one with minor and the other with moderate injuries, officials said. Cooler temperatures and higher humidity aided 220 firefighters who were trying to keep the blaze from spreading out of the San Bernardino Mountains into faster-burning grass and brush south of Apple Valley and Hesperia.
