It was short in length -- but long in its reach. The Grizzly Flats Railroad's steam engines traveled for 70 years along a 500-foot-long stretch of rails next to the San Gabriel home of Betty and Ward Kimball. Along the way, the Kimballs' picturesque narrow-gauge line helped inspire Walt Disney to build the famous passenger train system that circles Disneyland.

Pouring rain did not deter 200 South San Gabriel residents from their appointment with sheriff's deputies. Shaking off raincoats and snapping shut umbrellas, they streamed into an elementary school auditorium after a long day of work in order to have their fears relieved. One at a time, they stepped to the microphone, some demanding, others pleading. What steps, they asked, are police taking to combat the gangs? Why are there so many burglaries? What is being done to shut down drug dealers?

Authorities recovered a stolen BMW Wednesday that they believe was the getaway car used by gang members after the fatal shooting of a San Gabriel waitress, but said their investigation has been stalled by a lack of cooperation from witnesses. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. Ray Peavy said investigators are up against a culture of silence within the Asian community, where crime victims and witnesses rarely report gang activity for fear of retaliation.

Evan Wilson has spent the last three months leaning back, on a 40-foot-high scaffold, painting the ceiling of the historic San Gabriel Civic Auditorium in its original blue, orange, red and gold hues. When the 71-year-old auditorium reopens tonight as the intended cornerstone of San Gabriel's downtown renewal, Wilson said, he has one wish. "I just want people to look up," said the leader of a 12-artist restoration crew. "I want them to run into each other because they're looking at the ceiling."
