At a topping-off party for Cameron's nearly completed new industrial plant--over a long buffet table loaded with ribs, cured ham and smoked turkey--more than 400 people celebrated the return of bright times the other day. Granted, local officials agreed, this was not a prestigious deal like landing IBM or AT&T, but the plant was another sign that rural America was recovering from the economic downturn that struck in the 1980s.

The only historic marker hereabouts is for the birthplace of Lawrence Welk a few miles down the road. But there ought to be another where the underground fiber optic cable snakes into town: "Here, the transcontinental electronic highway was more or less completed in 1990 A.D." Certainly there's work yet to be done on the wiring of America.

A decade ago, this historic port, the easternmost city in the United States, was a picture of desolation. One Maine tour guide said it had "a haunting, end-of-the-world feel." Most storefronts downtown were boarded up, and a Maine humorist joked that Eastport's biggest event was its empty-building festival. The once-thriving sardine industry was virtually dead, its canneries crumbling. Eastport's largest employer had laid off 175 workers, and panic set in.

Under a new federal program to help those on welfare make the transition to work, Anaheim will receive more than $4 million in housing subsidy vouchers, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew Cuomo announced. The new welfare-to-workfare vouchers were among $280 million in added rental assistance for 35 states. The program, which will assist about 700 low-income families in Anaheim, was designed to help needy people live closer to jobs, day care and public transportation.
