A battle is brewing over a proposed Las Vegas-style casino just outside city limits. The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, a landless tribe of about 1,000 people with historic ties to Marin and Sonoma counties, hopes to build a casino on 360 acres of hay fields.

Just before the final bell at Rancho Cotate High School on a recent afternoon, a campus supervisor reported to Principal Mitchell Carter on his walkie-talkie: "I'm in position. Subject in view." The focus of the extra security was a lanky, blue-eyed, 17-year-old high school junior, Tim Bueler, whose claims of political harassment by "liberal" students and faculty have made him into something of a youth hero among conservative Web bloggers and radio talk show hosts across the country.
